1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: February Birthday Swap Gallery and Discussion on: March 08, 2012 01:47:52 PM
Sorry I've been MIA. We've had a little of everything here... medical issues, funerals, family obligations, on top of the normal stuff raising 2 little ones with my husband starting a new business that he's running out of our not-big-enough-to-be-an-office-and-a-home house). Sorry!

I'm uber late with my claim for klg_jlg, in part because of all the craziness and in part because I have no idea how long things take. Why is it that I come up with an idea and think that I can whip it up in no time & then it takes FOREVER?? I think I have a lot more confidence in my crafting abilities than I should! But it's nearly done & then I just have to add some stuff to make it a super-de-duper awesome package because I feel terrible about how late it is  Embarrassed

OMG Koreena! I can't believe you stuck yourself with a knitting needle! I'm so sorry! I feel kinda responsible because you were working on something for me! I hope it's healing okay.

I received from IdlersDesign the other day. I've been having trouble with my camera and computer cooperating, but I finally got the pictures. She sent me some super-awesome pants for my boys. My older one loves red and the younger one loved yellow and look how adorable these are! I just love them and even my husband couldn't stop talking about how cute they are. The boys are thrilled and they fit great!

And she sent me a wetbag with this awesome fabric! I love citrus fruits Smiley

Thanks so much IdlersDesign!

I have no plans for my birthday. It'll probably be a normal day - husband working & me taking care of the kids. My husband will probably make dinner and a cake for me.

I've been working on hoopla for klg_jlg. I was afraid my plan wouldn't work, but it's working great Smiley
I also added a couple crafted items, supplies, & misc to my list.
Happy birthdays everyone!

5  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: February Birthday Swap (Signup all month!) on: February 01, 2012 11:51:09 AM
I'm Sarah & my birthday is February 15. Im the big 3-5 this year (yikes!). I'm a stay-at-home mom in Woodstock, IL. I have 2 sons: Cooper, 4, & Dexter, 2.

I love orange. My favorite color combo is orange and light blue. I'm not a huge fan of purple. I like everything else, except neon colors. I LOVE batik & ombre stuff. I have way too many, but I still adore bags. I dont carry a regular purse, but I adore messenger style bags. I love Dr. Seuss (especially Oh, The Places You'll Go) & I really like whimsical designs. I prefer useful items to knick knacks, especially since we recently moved to a smaller house & had to downsize a lot. I also love citrus (as food and as a theme or fabric). Id love anything for my kitchen to be citrus themed

We have no allergies, but I get migraines from cigarette smoke so I'm very sensitive to that.

Thanks in advance! Smiley I'm so excited to be in this swap & I can't wait to peruse lists & make claims!

PINTEREST (Huge & constantly adding!)

WIST (I haven't updated this recently so ask about sizing, etc, but I still like the stuff!)

* NEW - Art smocks for my boys (they wear size 24months & 4T). I think this is cute.

* NEW - hanging wall organizers like this.

***SUPER BIG WISH*** a shrug similar to this but maybe something less bulky (maybe stretchy). A large & simple stitch would be fine!

* Kids coat rack (the kind that hang on the wall & have pegs or hooks). I particularly like the ones made from toys like this or this.

* Hobo gloves. I LOVE these.

* Something Slurpee or Icee inspired. Im obsessed. I have an Icee shirt & I wear it constantly. Maybe a cup cozy, or something made from Slurpee or Icee cups, or a shirt... anything. Im open to whatever you can come up with!

* Garden markers for vegetables & herbs

* Case (preferably with padding!) for my sons Leapfrog Explorer

* Door draft dodgers

* Design elements for my blog, Toddling Around Chicagoland - if you do any kind of graphic design message me for more details

* Pants like this for either or both of my boys Thanks IdlersDesign!

* Kitchen wetbag with a snapping strap or two to hang it made with cute fabric

* Handmade soap  (I dont like Patchouli scent. I like vanilla only if mixed with another scent.)

* Wool dryer balls

* Clothes for me. I generally wear a size large. I have lots of shirts & skirts I like on my wist & on Pinterest.

* Kids storage/organization stuff. I adore everything on this site (but not the pink girly stuff).

* Educational or imaginative games/toys for the kids. Alphabet, numbers, animals, maps, etc. We love books by Sandra Boynton, particularly the little Pookie books, so anything inspired by those would be great. Dr. Seuss too!

* Playsilks (we have orange & green so other colors would be great)

* Handknit socks (size 9) - regular socks or house socks

* Tie dye socks (shoe size 9, preferably rainbow)

* A personalized busy book for my sons. We have 2 already but the boys LOVE them.

* Something from my wist or pinterest or another surprise you think Id like


* NEW - Blank dice, preferably wooden - like this. I'd love several of them.
* NEW - wooden clothespins
* Scissors for fabric
* Art canvases
* T-shirt yarn
* Molds for making crayons
* Tie dye supplies (I dont have any so anything for a novice)
* Rolls of paper (like for a kids easel)
* Solid color short sleeve button up boys shirts (hand-me-downs or thrifted are fine) in size 4T, XS or S. I plan to use them to make uniform shirts for me sons for dress up (police man, delivery man, etc)
* Medium/heavy weight iron on interfacing
* Knit fabric. Maybe jersey or interlock, but anythings probably good. I prefer solid, darker colors. Black or grey would be great.
* Anything for storage of sewing supplies. I have lots of ribbon (on spools & loose), thread, elastic, zippers, velcro, & other odds & ends that need spiffy new (or new to me) homes.
* snap press (used is fine!)
* project bags


* NEW - Crayola crayons (broken are fine!)
* NEW - paint swatch cards
* Pink grapefruit tea
* Hot chocolate (I dont like dark or white chocolate)
* Candy - anything that's not spicy or very sour. I also like milk chocolate (I dont like dark or white chocolate)
* Bento stuff - boxes or accessories
