I claim summertimerolls for cool barrettes.

This is my 1st claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

i am a SAHM to 4 kiddos.  We have 3 girls and 1 boy, 8yrs, 5 yrs, 3 yrs &  1 yr old.  We live in KY and have a small amount of living space for all 6 of us.  The sisters all love "the Bubs" very much.  He probably needs the most stuff since we have so many girly things. 

for Bubs:

He has a surfer/skateboarder style with cool hair to match.

Some cool surfer/skateboarder style stenciled/silkscreened/appliqued t-shirts - size 12 mo.

Cadet style hat

knit toque in browns/oranges

pj sets (styled like Old Navy/Gymboree pants)  he is cloth diapered so he needs some extra room in the pants.

He is very good with his hands and likes to manipulate things so we need some toys that are good for him to manipulate.

For the girls:

Felt play food for their kitchen

I will update more later on.....  thanks!

I claim CJKJ for a knitted hat in brown and orange!
This is my first claim, 0 sent, 0 recieved

Hey guys!  Im Heather, and me and my family live in Michigan.  We are big into nature, living green, recycling and stuff like that.  We love to hike, and we love things inspired by nature.   Ive got a kiddo, Alexander, and hes 8.75.  He turns 9 on December 22nd.  He loves Star Wars, Naruto, Avatar, Pokemon, Harry Potter, Goosebumps books, pirates, monsters, magic, all kinds of stuff.  He LOVES to read, like crazy.  He is super athletic, and very tall.  (he is only a couple of inches shorter than me!  It is scary!)
We just re-did his room last month. The walls are green, and the rest of the scheme is black, white, and silver/grey.  We wanted to give him a really nice, grown up room.  He is definitely a grown up kid.  He really really loves anything handmade.  He is the kind of kid who totally loves something more if it was made by hand. (I really lucked out!)
So heres some stuff he would LOVE:

His biggest wish would be for a soft guitarhe would totally go insane for something like thishe wants to either be a Jedi or a rockstar when he grows up:  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=12692805  Any of them at this site rock!

Crocheted star wars guys: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_1&listing_id=14517559

Roll up chalkboard:

Sock animal

A yoda poppet

A cool stenciled/screen printed/or sewn hoodie (size 12)  anything star wars, naruto, skulls, rock and roll, anything like that would be awesome!

A stuffed octopus with long tentacles (hed love something big enough to be huggable)

A case for his leapster L-max.  We need something to travel with.  It can be just a large padded cosmetic bag, but it would need to have a pocket to keep the little game cartridges in it.  Ill get dimensions if anyone is interested.

A lunch bag for school (cleanable would be awesome!) like this one, but not flowery:

A big library tote, maybe in a solid color, or a stripe, or some kind of nature-inspired fabric, hes big into being a grown up right now!

A hanging pocket organizer in black/white/silver/green, to hang in his room:

Something cool and princessy for my neice, Emma.  She's 7, but she wears a size 12 in girls (she's a hefty princess!). 
She'd dig cool stenciled or appliqued shirts. 
A pretty princessy doll
A stuffed fleece bunny or horse.
Anything made for her really needs to be pretty rough and tumble.  She lives in a house where things break easily.  Things that are washable are also a plus!

And my sister in law is having a baby this summer.  Its going to be a boy!  Her favorite color is baby blue.  Shes kinda into blingy stuff.  This will be her first baby, so she doesnt have any hand me downs sitting in boxes, and heres some stuff  Id love to giver her:

A diaper changing pad:

A cool diaper bag:

Baby booties

Any used but nice baby stuff would be great too!  Or any baby stuff that you love to make.

Thanks in advance!!!

Step off, I'm doin the hump.

I claim superhooker for a soft guitar!

This is my second claim of three allowed, zero sent, zero received.

A little bit about us.  We are from Maine and spend A LOT of time outdoors; we hike, bike, walk, geocache, and explore.  Our newest activity is biking/riding in the royal carriage (read ride in the bike trailer behind mommy and give directions on how fast/slow mommy is going).  We are a fairly crafty family.  My ten year old loves bold colors and crafting unusual/different things out of craft materials.  My middle child likes pinks, purples, and browns as well as elephants; she also likes anything we call a craft project.  My youngests--who turned 2 several days ago) loves monkeys and soft fabrics. 

Crafted Items:

Knitted Hats to fit my children.  The youngest is two, middle is four, oldest is ten--heads slightly bigger then average for the two year old and ten year old.

Colorful sock monkey

Felt Food (Sandwhich, Pizza, Breakfast Items, Produce)

Tote bag or bags with an outer pocket for bed time (a pocket for a book and a pocket for pjs).  The oldest likes bold colors and animal prints.  The middle child likes butterflies, purples, pinks, and browns.  The youngest likes monkeys and soft fabrics. 

Anything from/inspired by my wist: http://www.wists.com/girlosun_9 and there are a lot of ideas here, please feel free to craft something you would like to craft!

Gocco Cards with envelopes.   Deer, owls, trees, acorns, and/or pretty much anything nature inspired.  We are big on writing to friends/family and the children use these cards for that as well as for writing birthday letters.

Felted beads

Another I Spy Bag as we drive in the car quite a bit to geocache and go on hikes/bike rides

A scale model of the solar system that I can hang from the ceiling. 

Crochet baking set (thanks MommyTheMaid for the idea)--either all or part of the set in any color but pink

Molly Monkey http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/2008/07/drum-roll-pleasemolly-monkey-pattern.html Thanks summertimerolls!
A bracelet like this http://craftgossip.com/blog/id-me-metal-clay-bracelet-tutorial/2008/08/14/ for my oldests.  Her intials are ABI or ALBI (gotta love the hyphenated last names   )

A pendant making kit (for the eldest, this is what she wants to make for Christmas gifts for her friends) like this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15000148 or this http://www.makeandtakes.com/links/scrabble-tile-pendant-tutorial or this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14928442
A fabric dollhouse like this http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2008/08/fabric_dollhouse_tutorial.html?CMP=OTC-5JF307375954

An I know this is way beyond huge but I saw it on superhooker's list last round: http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=66029

Diamond Glaze (my oldest is making magnets and likes the dimension it gives them)

Yardage of fabric featuring elephants (not circus please) or monkeys or anything forest like (cute forest not actual forest) or novelty (lemons, goldfish, bikes, etc.)

This fabric for a quilt/pillowcase/and or wallhanging for my middle child http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14833775

Linen→Used or Thrifted pretty much any color (the middle child does A LOT of embroidery)

Anything from/inspired by my wist: http://www.wists.com/girlosun_9 that is for children

linen double fold bias tape at least a 1/2 inch (for skirts for the older two)

Little figurines so we can make this: http://www.parenting.com/article/Toddler/Activities/Ocean-in-a-Bottle

unpainted wooden nesting dolls

zippers (again, for skirts)

I claim girlosun_9 for crocheted baking set.
(this has got to be the cutest pattern ever, I have a feeling I will be making LOTS of these!)
This is my first claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

I am a SAHM (atm, however I am currently looking for a parttime job, bleh) of 1 darling little boy who turned 3 today (9/17).  We live in North Carolina, USA.

Quentin - 3 year old boy
Currently wears size 3T in shirts and 2T in pants (he is tall and skinny/long torso, 38in.tall/30lbs), size 6/7 in toddler shoes.  If you need actual measurements let me know.  I am pretty sure as I type this he is having a growth spurt.
Loves Thomas/trains, cars (ie-HotWheels), SuperWhy, Clifford, Lazytown, Dora/Diego, Blue's Clues, Mario Bros, RockBand, pirates, dinosaurs, space/rockets (and lots of other things, just ask, he probably likes it)  OMG, I can't believe I almost forgot Spiderman!
Also enjoys cheese (in many wonderous forms, from quesadilas to cubes), cookies, ice cream, chocolate milk and fruit snacks.  (I promise he doesn't just eat these things, they are just on the top of the list of things he wants when I ask him what he wants for whatever meal)
Also likes trying to ride his new tricycle, running in circles around the house, gymnastics class, and "playing" soccer.
Likes watching KC Chiefs football with his daddy and grandpa every Sunday (they all have matching jerseys, it's really quite adorable).  Also UNC Tarheel basketball is big in this house.  (He also has a KU-Jayhawks grandpa and an UGA-Bulldogs grandpa pulling him in their directions, haha).
He doesn't really have a favorite color (at least not one that he will tell me, he just starts naming all the colors he knows), sticking to boy appropriate colors would be best (so no pinks or purples).


Play Food/Play Kitchen items - I (with the help of my woodworking older brother) am converting a set of old bedside tables into a play kitchen for Christmas... so I will be needing play kitchen and food items, I have a whole booklet that I printed out of crocheted foods but I haven't had a chance to get them started.  Crocheted/felt/etc... please no faces on the items, there's nothing weirder than pretending to eat foods that have cute/funny faces.

Awesome shirts (long sleeve and short sleeve) or hoodie - please no iron ons (they do not last in my wash) - in any of his favorite things or check out the examples on his wist (link below, and yes I made my kid his own wist, haha)

Lounge pants/PJs in fabrics in his favorite things or some Christmas ones (I've even seen Thomas Christmas fabric!). 

Art for bedroom/bathroom (painting/embroidery/fabric/etc) - Bedroom is transportation themed, bathroom is monkeys/jungle.  (Here is a link to my flickr set with pictures of both rooms-the only thing that is different now other than furniture being moved around is the Thomas curtain on the window, it's posted on here- http://www.flickr.com/photos/amystagner/sets/72157603919027797/)

Transportation themed (or Thomas themed) Bedding... blanket/quilt/sheets/pillowcases (please no fleece blankets, he has like 5 of them now)... twin sized.

This is a biggie, but this thing is just too cool, so I thought why not, I can't seem to figure out how to make it... http://www.shopatron.com/product/product_id=BOO801/514.0

Knit socks!  I just love knit socks but I can't knit myself and crocheted socks aren't as nice looking.

I-Spy bag.  These things are so neat!

Conductors hat - kid loves his trains.

Sewing/crocheting patterns for infants/toddlers/boys/girls (we plan on having at least one more, it might be a little while, but I have been collecting patterns so I will be ready when we do)

Mario (as in the Nintendo Mario bros) amigurumi - snugglably sized.

Belts - the kiddo has a TINY waist and long legs, so belts are important. I have made a few out of plain webbing, but would love some fun ones!  His waist is 19-20inches.

A set of cute/fun magnets (he has one of those magnet/dryerase/chalkboard easels) to play with (puzzles, alphabets, cars/trains/planes, etc...)

A carrying case/cozy for the Gameboy Advance SP he got for his birthday, that can hold a few games too.


his wist - http://www.wists.com/Qstag  (there are examples of most of the things on the list on here)

his blog - http://amystagner.blogspot.com

I claim Zelda.Suicide for some belts.

This is my 2nd claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

i am a SAHM to 4 kiddos.  We have 3 girls and 1 boy, 8yrs, 5 yrs, 3 yrs &  1 yr old.  We live in KY and have a small amount of living space for all 6 of us.  The sisters all love "the Bubs" very much.  He probably needs the most stuff since we have so many girly things. 

for Bubs:  (He has a surfer/skateboarder style with cool hair to match.)

Some cool surfer/skateboarder style stenciled/silkscreened/appliqued t-shirts - size 12 mo.

Layered sleeve tees stenciled/silkscreened with sayings "Bread Lovers Unite!" or "Yeah, Toast"  (yes, he's a bread man)

Cadet style hat

knit toque in browns/oranges

pj pants or sets (styled like Old Navy/Gap pants)  he is cloth diapered so he needs some extra room in the pants.  I love stripes in boyish colors.

He is very good with his hands and likes to manipulate things so we need some toys that are good for him to manipulate.

Wooden lock box toy like this: http://www.peapods.com/browse.cfm/4,667.htm

wooden freeform blocks like this:

Nuts & Bolts board like this (bottom of pg 36):

For the girls:

Hand drawn/painted artwork with their name, name meaning & scripture (ask me for the descriptions)

Wool Felt play food for their kitchen (any)

Hand puppets for 3 yr old.  Somethat look realistic like this:

Crocheted headbands that grip for 5 yr old.  Her hair is so thin it falls out of anything we use to put it up.  Like the large cream one in this post:

Pop Tab Belt for 8 yr old - she ADORES this but we don't drink can soda.

wool felt & floss for 8 yr old to craft with

I claim unjugetito for a bunch of stuff her kids will like.  I like surprises, so I'm not telling!  But there will be something for everyone.

This is (2,0,0) for me ---I promise I'm working on yours girlosun_9!
Im a 31 SAHM of two.  Olivia and Ben .  We live in Ohio but we do not chant O-H-I-O every time someone says Ohio.    Both of my kids are taking after me a little and love crafts.  They are used to me getting packages in the mail and have been asking to get their own.
Olivia is 7 and in second grade.  She has been taking karate for 2 years and LOVES it.  She is rather serious about it and her goal is her black belt.  Although she is very tough in class, she has a quiet gentleness to her.  Like most little girls, she loves twirly dresses, fingernail polish, and hair accessories.

Ben is 4   and all BOY.  He is a ball of energy.  He too has just started karate classes and seems to really enjoy them.  Ben loves (not even a big enough word.) trains.  He always has, and I have a feeling always will.  He is FUNNY, just one of those naturally goofy kids.

I also have a niece and nephew that are 4 and 1 that I may list things for.  Actually I have 10 nieces and nephews but most are older.
And for the stuff:

Stuffies- funny, goofy non-normal ones

Felt food- we have pizzas.  Would love sandwiches, ice cream, tacos...etc.

t-shirts with something either embroidered or painted on...guitars, trains, cars, karate,boy things size 5 (long sleeves would be good too)
girlie things, princess, crowns, cupcakes, hearts, anything karate Size 8 girls.

Bath scrubbies

PJ pants for Ben (size 5)

Nightgown for Liv (size Cool

Chore chart

Finger puppets to tell one of the good ol stories.  Goldilocks, Red riding hood, 3 little pigsor any bible story

Puzzlesyou can find blank ones and color on them.  Train themes, karate themes, or some funky patterns

Voice volume controls.  I havent been able to figure out how to make these or I would already made them.

Homemade playdoh

Magic wands

I spy bags

Headbands with the long fabric tails.  Cool barrettes (this kid has seriously thick hair, so your normal plastic barrettes won't work.  they have to be this kind.  http://www.craftsetc.com/store/item.aspx?ItemId=85948&dep=85&cat=24&subcat=5&Search=Y

Anti-fighting spray.  You know you spray the cat if it is doing something you dont likeI need something I can spray the kids.

Fun mixed color crayons-any shape

The kids love having their own drawer of craft stuff.  This way Im not yelling DONT TOUCH THAT!

« Reply #18 on: September 30, 2008 08:18:41 AM »

I'll claim a chore chart! (and maybe non fighting spray if I can get my printer working!)

Hi, Im sajona from the UK, I have 4 kids, no pets and a IT consultant DH. We live in chaos just north of London .

second claim of 3
1 sent, 1 received

S aged 14 : Spends his entire waking hours on the computer if he possibly can do or the Wii or XBOX360. He has grown up with Nintendo  - especially Mario so anything with that theme would go down well. He hates sports and is quite happy being a geek ☺
He loves music too especially Linkin Park.
Favourite programmes: Heroes and The Simpsons
Fave colours: blue and black
Fits size 15/16 Mens size small.
(received - a mario stuffie!)

J  aged 11 loves World War 2 tanks and all military stuff especially American and Japanese stuff.  His bedroom has this theme so any storage items, books, pictures that would work would be great.

Loves drawing especially cartoons and marvel comic style heroes.
Favourite programmes: The Simpsons and Futurama
He fits age 10 t shirts (he is small for his age)
Some hats/scarves would be useful (nothing scratchy he is quite fussy LOL!)

He fits 7/8 clothes.
He likes all colours.
He could also do with cold weather gear and storage items plus drawing pads/colouring pens etc that are unusual.

N aged nearly 3 is a Disney Princess she is totally mad for Little Mermaid, Snow White, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast etc etc. Loves dressing up and drawing. She starts ballet this term.
Fits 3-4 size clothes. Loves pink, pink and more pink. Pretty typical for her age I suppose., She does like Hello Kitty too.  Her room is all pink and cream but not that cutesy.
