Wow!  That's a lot still outstanding...........I appreciate all the time and effort you put forth to keep us in line, Gator!  My DC#s show that all of my items were delivered, hopefully you'll hear from everyone that that is the case!

I claim grabacoffee for some fused glass jewelry for her mother-in-law.  This is my second claim this round.  (2/0/0)

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.

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! 

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!

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!

I had to giggle when I saw this pic artista - because we've been throwing back the Mucinex like mad in this house the last few weeks, too!

Beautiful packages!  Those superman shirts are sure to make for a happy little one!  I'm loving those kitchen towels - quite adorable and those cards are just all kinds of awesome!
46  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: OWS Round 98 Discussion on: September 30, 2013 07:00:34 PM
Woot, woot!  Yay for a new round!  I'll be signing up just as soon as I open up a few swap spots. 
47  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: STS Winter Market 2013 Discussion Thread on: September 27, 2013 02:34:52 PM
Love those wooden buttons!  There's so much awesome stuff in the shops, I'm trying to get my crazy RL in order so that I can join in the fun before sign ups close on Monday!

Oh my gosh, that sweater is just adorable, mama24boyz!  I'm admiring the wall panels as well.  What a great package!
49  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: OWS Round 97 Gallery on: September 27, 2013 02:20:52 PM
It is not an exaggeration to say that the bag is JUST PERFECT.  A2K knocked my socks off with it, I love it, and it gets comments from everyone!  That said, I'm fortunate enough to have swapped with gamemom42 as well, and she is selling herself short here - you are quite the talented Craftster yourself, girlfriend!

Love those pearl and ribbon bracelets - they are so adorable and I love the simple charm of them! 

And, I've already had someone squeal over your changing pads, Averia!  She studied them for a bit and is going to attempt her own this weekend!   Cheesy

It ain't over till it's over............  I am just floored by the kindness and generosity of our lovely LadybugsAndBumblebees!!  Seriously, she probably has angel point in heaven!  When it looked as though the angel package she sent me had gone astray, SHE CRAFTED ANOTHER PACKAGE!  It is just as amazing as the first.  This is going to be one seriously spoiled baby ~ this blanket is just as beautiful as the first.  I believe the yarn is the same, but the stitch is different.  It's lovely!  She sent along another mason jar candle and cozy with an led candle, a gorgeous little crochet bowl from my pinterest, some bottle caps she had seen I was collecting and an Americana Ornament for the Festival tree we decorate every year - how thoughtful was that?  Barbara, I just can't express how grateful I am!



EDIT to apologize for the terrible picture quality.  I think I need to see what's up with my camera - pics have been just horrid lately!
