BBT---Big Bang Theory--I'm a fan--actually, I have a slight obsession with it....I've got t-shirts, half  the cast in amigurimis, soft kitty slippers, lots of Bazinga stuff....okay..so maybe it's more than a slight obsession. Smiley lol   "Bazinga!"

On the other side - I think BBT is senseless  Cheesy  Sorry but .:dollface:. needs more than just one opinion.  My family likes it but I just don't see the humor or attraction at all.


Hehe......senseless is pretty much why I love it!  I don't watch a lot of regular tv, and usually I only catch reruns late at night, but the silly non-cerebral humor of BBT provides a bit of giddy relaxation for me!

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm, jams & jellies!  Yumm!  So glad you found an angel, but so sorry that you need to, mama24boyz!

Okay, ever get one of those packages that makes you feel super-spoiled and undeserving?  (Duh, of course you have, this IS Craftster after all!  Grin )

I received yet another amazing package from watsonc7!  She went way above and beyond and I really have to stay on the swap thread so that I can try and catch her and send some spoilage her way as well....here we go:

First up, she claimed me for a Silhouette Cameo cover for my sis-in-law.  She wasn't sure it would fit, so I photographed it on my own Cameo so that she can see it fits just perfectly!  And the fabric is quite lovely - sadly, the pic doesn't show how vibrant it is:


She also added 'baby stuffs' to the claim!  My brother is so excited for this little one, and he has absolutely no idea how spoiled the baby boy is going to be thanks to all the wonderful Craftsters who have crafted lovelies for him!  Again, the pics are a bit off, but the colors are vibrant.  First up a wonderful baby blanket with a beautiful cotton focus fabric and an amazingly soft minky-like backing.  watsonc7 even quilted it together.  Just lovely!


And next up, an adorable sunny taggie toy - not only is it soft and tactile, but it also has a jingle bell hidden inside!  Way too cute!


And finally, many of you know that our company donates a tree to the St. Alphonsus Festival of Trees each year.  This year our theme is Vintage Americana Highway and watsonc7 sent along some beautiful little ornaments for the tree.  Lucky for me she also sent along the name of the fabric line - I think I may have to source some for projects of my own!


We decorate the trees the week of Thanksgiving ~ I'll be sure to post a pic of ours so that those of you who have contributed might see your handiwork in context!

Once again, your talent and generosity have blown me away, watsonc7!  Thank you so very, very much and I'll be watching for you to pop up on the list!

I love when the gallery starts filling up!  Such fun stuff!  I happen to be the proud owner of one of Avesthel's shawl pins!  They are so lovely.  What unique fabrics, LandBBs!  And watsonc7, your various talents amaze me! 

And as always, I so admire those of you who make such beautiful works from fiber and yarn!  I suspect that Minecraft hat is going to be well-loved!  Speaking of talented yarnies, I received a lovely package from Sweden!  How adorable are these?  She even included care instructions and the leftover bits of yarn!




Thank you so much, Annchen!  They really are absolutely perfect!

I'm loving those aliases!  What an awesome list of swappers!

Such awesome goodies! Love those placemats! 

So excited to post these pics!  I actually went 'oooooooooooooohhhhh' when I opened this little cutie up tonight!  I just adore her!  I'm hoping to collect sock monkeys for each of my nieces and nephews for Christmas and mama24boyz claimed me for my first one.  I already know which lucky girl will be getting this one!  Don't you just love the details - check out those eyelashes and the little flower!!





Thank you mama24boyz, she couldn't be more perfect!

I claim underthemountain for an assortment of fused glass pendants for teachers/friends.  This is my third claim this round.  (3/1/0)

Hi, all!  I'm Tracy from Idaho.  Hubby and I have two college aged boys who are off to school and three furry family members.  We have lots of nieces and nephews and family is scattered all across the country.  I'm quite excited for this swap, and my list will probably evolve as we go along and get closer to the holiday season. 

I love that I can gift quality handmade items from the Craftster Community. If you have a business card or tag that you use, I'd like to include it with gift packages, so would be very grateful if you would send it on along!  ♥


Things that would be great for lots of folks on the lists:

Handmade soaps - cold or hot process, not M & P.  Any scents you enjoy working with would be great - there are so many folks this would work for that I'm sure to be able to match your available scents with recipients preferences.

Felted Soaps:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698662/

These awesome charger pockets:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694694/  Thanks, watson!

Baseball bracelets like these: http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694379/

This type of 'giving plate' for friends and neighbors - your own style/color/interpretation is welcomed!  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694373/

Soup mugs:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639554658/

Love this bird's nest hoopla for my bro and sis-in-law, love the burlap, would need to have 4 pinkish eggs and 2 blue ones:  http://pinterest.com/pin/286682332503140541/


For some of the ladies - I could gift these lovely mittens to as many as seven folks on my list:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639698632/


For my sis-in-law, J - burlap rosettes heart wreath similar to this: http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694362/

Also for J - Silhouette Cameo cover like this:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694363/

For sis-in-laws in TX, CO, and FL - anyone do hand carved spoons?  http://pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=hand%20carved%20spoons  or rustic wood cutting boards?  http://pinterest.com/pin/66357794482703425/


Ear cuffs of your design for older nieces and a couple SiLs, simple, clean looks are probably best:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694444/

Yarn bowls for a couple of crafty folks on the list: http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/    http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639707816/

Would LOVE a hipsterish sock monkey for my oldest son - most important detail would be the bow tie.  This one is AWESOME:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694690/

Also, sock monkeys for the younger nieces and nephews would be awesome, too!  Girls range from 2 years to 9 years old.  Boys range from 4 years to 12 years old.  Fun girly motifs or horses or gymnastics type.  Boys play baseball and love the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots and Boston Bruins.

In either this swap or the OWS last month, someone received a taggie dinosaur made from New England Patriots fabric - HUGE wish for the soon to be new niece or nephew!!!

Looking for three weighted pin cushions with thread catchers and scissor slot for mom and two dear friends.  I received one in a swap from ehinders and they all love it!  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694323/

ANYTHING in New England Patriots, Boston Bruins or Boston Red Sox motifs - jewelry or bags/pouches for the ladies and ANY guy things you might be able to dream up.  I have a difficult time with the guys.

Anyone do pencil sketches or ink drawings or any other subject art media?  Would love some framable pieces showcasing son's race car from this season, each of the boys, and even our fur babies!  Can send or email photos.

BIG, BIG wish:  My mom has a quilted book cover for standard size paperbacks -- you know, the trashy romance novel size!  She got it many years ago at a craft show and the poor thing is thread bare and barely hanging on.  She has not been able to find one to replace it because she is quite particular.  This one has an attached bookmark, a velcro closure and a little pocket on the front.  Any one who could create something like this in a bluish color pattern would have my forever gratitude! 
  Thank you, watsonc7!

My baby brother is having his first baby...........well, his wife is, anyway!  We don't know if it will be a boy or a girl, but if you have any go-to baby gifts that you make, we'd love to add them to the 'baby to be' gift package!  UPDATE:  It's a Boy!!!!!

AND............we donate and decorate a tree for the local Festival of Trees each year.  We are going with an Americana motif this year and would LOVE it if any of you would be willing to send along an ornament for the tree!

Striking colors! They give a different feel to the chevron design. Aren't you just the best sister ever?
