I've only made I've official claim, and it's taking longer than I thought, but I'm also going to start working on other things - I figure I'll claim when I'm done, to reduce stress.

The holidays are usually a very laid-back time for me, it's just me, the hubby, and the dog and two days off work! I'm hoping to get a bunch done...  we'll see!

So is anyone else thinking about how to wrap everything differently in case people share pictures of cards & unopened presents?  Or have I just done too many rounds of Stalker Swaps?  Smiley

I hadn't thought of that! Hmmmm, I do have quite the stash of very different styles of paper, plus, if I get to some of the ones I want to, there are some wrapping ideas I'll have to see if I can pull off...

Awww, AIMR, thanks! 

Fluffypants, you can start anytime!  Claim away!

I'm actually working on something that I can't made an official claim for yet, I want to see if it works out before I claim...  Cheesy

Hi, I'm Michelle, I live in Kansas (USA) with a husband and a dog.  I am allergic to hemp fibers and oils, so nothing with that in it, please.  We celebrate a completely non-religious Christmas, aka "Santa Day".  Cute Christmas things (reindeer, penguins, etc) are fine, nothing religious please!

Things you could make me:

Shopping bags!  In part to be environmentally friendly, in part because these things are awesome and can hold tons and I always get compliments.  And I can never have too many... https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177482.0

I need a dog walking bag.  I have no link to anything, but what I need is a cross-body, open-top bag big enough for a leash, tennis ball, bag of treats, and waste disposal bags.  Also an outside pocket for my phone, and a plastic-lined compartment for... used waste-disposal bags would be nice.  Preferably in dog-themed fabric, just because.

Double-pointed knitting needle holders: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/272045633717327348/ (I made myself one and loooooove it and need more!)

Hoops!  
These are ones I've made for other people that I'd really love to have a version of (it's so much easier to make things for other people, isn't it?):

Original Artwork - I have a pinboard that shows kinda what I like: https://www.pinterest.com/smeddley/art-i-like/

Huge wish: Bear coasters! https://www.pinterest.com/pin/272045633713437917/

PUMPKIN ALL THE THINGS!  Every year from Oct 1 - Thanksgiving I feature a pumpkin thing a day on my Instagram/Facebook (if you'd like to see 2016's PATT, my Instagram is: https://www.instagram.com/smeddleys/ ... 2015's is only on my FB page).  This does include pumpkin spice foods, but I've already "reviewed" a lot of those - unless you can find CVS's purported PS cough crops or Walgreen's PS gum, which I've never seen.  I still need some for this year and I'd like next year to be all crafted pumpkin goodness!

Shark things!  Next to PATT, Shark Week is one of my favorite times of the year - both Shark Weeks, the official, science-y one, and the bad monster movie SyFy one.

Anything on any of my boards marks "swap inspirations" : https://www.pinterest.com/smeddley/ - some of the stuff on the other boards I pinned for other people, or because I planned on making it for a specific use (that may be O.B.E. (overcome by events)), but the stuff on these boards is all stuff I like and would want for me.

Things that could be made or purchased, depending on your crafting skill set:
Spinny yarn thingee
Hair sticks
Drop Spindle
Journals/Junk Journals/Fabric Journals

Supplies I can never have enough of:
Fabrics
Crochet hooks and knitting needles
Stitch markers, both crochet and knitting
Safety eyes, all sized
Fiber for spinning/needle felting
Yarn
Art Stencils
Stamps
Buttons
Beads
Ephemera for art/journaling
Art supplies of all types
Elastic (especially wide, for knitting needle holders)
Clay molds and tools
Origami paper, especially squares for cranes and strips for stars

Charity crafting!

I volunteer at Ray of Hope, which hosts dog (and cat) adoption events at Petsmart every weekend.  https://www.facebook.com/Ray-of-Hope-KCK-1646910742241793/ Things we need/use:
Dog toys (or, alternatively, fleece for me to bake box braid dog tugs!)
Candy (we have a candy bowl we set out for people)
Dog treats (sometimes the only way to keep them quiet, small training treats are great)
Dog brushes (these are animal control dogs, and don't get bathed/brushed often)
Waterless dog shampoo (see above)
Gift cards to Petsmart/Target to buy the above mentioned supplies (we share a parking lot with a Target, so convenience!)

I also volunteer at the Commemorative Air Force (Heart of America wing) and they keep vintage airplanes flying.  They have a ST-19 and a Stearman bi-plane (I know next to nothing about planes, but my very good friends are super-involved)
https://www.facebook.com/Commemorative-Air-Force-Heart-of-America-Wing-199068986088/
Anything plane-themed to auction off at their annual dance or to sell at Open Hangar Days

Abandoned Art!
I love abandoning art, so anything you want abandoned in this area is fine by me!  I will say that there are two things I've done in the past:
Operation Beautiful/Inspirational ATCs - I tend to leave these in libraries and in library books, bookmarks would also work!
Painted rocks - a middle school nearby puts them out in a part and invites others to do so, I like to think they are happy and excited when others do!  Plus I've had fun doing them.  I get that this is literally shipping rocks, but hey, flat rate box?  Cheesy

I know this a huge list, kudos if you got to the bottom of it, I'd give you a cookies if I could!  Thanks for looking!  Cheesy

Had a few activities this weekend, one of which was a gem and mineral show. It was fun to go look, and we did find one or two things, but a lot of it was so very expensive ($812 for one strand of beads?!).
