Welcome to the Ongoing Holiday Gift List Swap! Round 11!

We know it's early, but it's never too soon to start thinking of holiday gifts!  This the place to help your fellow Craftster narrow down their holiday gift lists.  This swap welcomes every winter holiday including Christmas, Hanukah/Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, etc.  If you want a handmade holiday for your friends and family, this is the place to get help on your list.  From grandma to your own kids, your lists can include almost anyone in your life that you might need a little help crafting for - even yourself!.   Please read through this initial post carefully before joining and PM me with any questions.

How it works:

This swap will work in an ongoing format.  The first person in the swap will post a list of handmade items that they would like.  The participants then look through the list and if they can fulfill that particular wish, they claim that person for that item and post their own list for the next person to claim them.  This works like a chain.  Person A is claimed by Person B, Person B is claimed by Person C, etc.  You must claim to be claimed and only one person can claim another at a time.  

Each FOC can have up to 3 outstanding claims at a time.  A non-FOC craftster gets two claims at a time.  A new swapper can have 1 claim at a time.  Once one of your claim is received and the organizer is notified, you may claim again.  

What is on the list:

Each participant can post as many size medium requests as they would like in their list.  Please try to post a minimum of 10 items you would like so there is a variety and a better chance of not stalling the swap.  You may post larges or smalls as well, but please realize that to fulfill the swap requirements, you are only required to claim and send a medium.  This swap will be for handmade items only.  Organizing your list by crafting medium is a good idea to help other participants find something on your list that they are good at, but is not required.  Please note that because these are holiday wishes we are filling, items should be your absolute best quality.  

How to make your list:

Please format your list to have an introduction that lets us know a little more about you, such as your name, your general location, etc.  Please format your wishes so that each participant has a clear idea as to what you are looking for.  Posting links is highly advisable.  It is also a great idea to provide participants with as much relevant information on the gift recipient as possible.  Here is my suggested way for formatting each wish:

<item> <recipient> <preferences> <link>

Doll dress for my daughter.  She prefers pink floral fabric with a velcro or button closure.  Here is one she likes http://URL GOES HERE
Allergies:  Smoke

Including allergies right underneath of each wish keeps the allergies in focus.  This is such an important part to consider when claiming someone.  If you format your wishes like this, they will be clear and you are more likely to be claimed quickly.

Making a claim:

Once you make a claim, you must PM the participant that you are claiming for their address and to discuss the item you have claimed to make for them.  Once you make a claim, you are committed to making that item.  Remember, you only have two weeks to complete the item and ship it.  If you choose to send extras, they do not contribute to the size of the claim.  A medium is technically either between 2-3 hours in time, or $20-$30 in supplies/value.  To claim the person who is currently available, respond to their post with I claim <username> for <item claimed for>.  For example, if I were to claim myself to make socks, I would write, I claim mama24boyz for a hoopla.  Within that same response, you then post your own list so someone can claim you.  

Send Outs:

Just like other ongoing swaps, you will have two weeks from the date of your claim to send out your item.  There are no exceptions.  DC#s will be absolutely required.  If you do not provide a DC#, it will be noted in your feedback.  If you do not provide a DC# and your package gets lost, you will be required to resend.  You must PM the organizers with the DC#/customs# when you send!

Qualifications to Join:

Anyone is free to join under standard Craftster Swap Guidelines.  Due to the time constraints on claims, I reserve the right to deny any Craftster that has a history of lateness.

Receiving packages:

Please PM me as soon as you receive each package.  This is so I can keep track of claims.  Pictures in the gallery are also appreciated.  Some of your fulfilled wishes might inspire other wishes for other participants.

Other important info:

You do not have to message me when you claim a person.  You only have to message them for their address.  Please PM me however when you send your questionnaire, when you send your claim, and when you receive a claim with the title: OHLS 11: questionnaire, OHLS 11: sent!, etc.  Also, Please PM me with any questions you have.

Please do not claim a person until you have been approved for this swap and it is listed in your profile!  Please do not claim a person once one of your claims has been received until the person receiving from you verifies your package arrived and is exactly what you claimed them for. (Unless you have open claim spots, of course!)

Sometimes, a person's list will stall the swap.  When your list has been up for more than 18-24 hours without someone claiming you, please try to add more items to your list so you have a better chance of being claimed.  Remember that it is possible that not all of your items will be claimed.  

There will be a discussion/gallery thread in the Gallery area.  This is an area to give us updates and discuss this swap.  

At the end of the month, whoever is the last on the list will be first on the list for the following month/or the organizer (me!) will be the ending claimer.  You will have to sign up for each additional round that you choose to participate in.  You must be current in the previous round to be accepted to the new round.

This swap is open to international swappers, as well as new swappers.

I reserve the right to deny participation to anyone who is late in previous rounds of this swap.  This is a holiday swap and should be fun!

If you want to participate, here is the information to send to the organizer.  Please have the title of your PM be the name of the swap.

Name of swap: Holiday Gift List Round 11
Craftster username:

I claim nisforneville for a captain America Ami and a swiffer cover

Hi!  Im Melanie from Ontario, Canada. Im a 36 year old stay-at-home-mom to 5, 4 boys and 1 girl.  No allergies at our house really.  We have a huge family day on Christmas with aunts and uncles, grandmas and grandpas and kids, and we do this for both sides.  Long fun days.  Im sure my list will get longer as we get closer to the holidays, but for now this is what I can think of.

I have a family gifts board on my pinterest thats full of ideas and each of my kids also have their own boards, anything from there would be awesome.  http://pinterest.com/mama24boyz/

I would love lots of snowball surprises!! These look awesome! One at a time of course   http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505452/

These would be great for anyone on my list too http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505455/
As would these snowman chocolates http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505443/

Heres another thing that would work for so many people. http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199509667971/

Mom OK, my Mom is hard!!  Maybe not, but she is for me.  She has a unique style I think.  She loves her hot tub and being outside.  She likes wine.  She has little iguanas hanging around (ceramic, not real) and she likes bold colours.
- I would LOVE if someone could knit her these socks http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lizard-socks-2
- My Moms a machine shop teacher in high school.  I think she would LOVE some sort of steampunk ornament.  
- My Mom would LOVE this windchime made of old wine bottles.  Could be any colour. http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510547042/
- These mason jars would be perfect for her deck at night! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510408563/
- This would be PERFECT!!! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513369661/

Dad My Dad is another one who is pretty difficult.  Hes originally from Manchester England and loves Manchester soccer team.  I really dont have any ideas for him.
- Manchester United coasters

Max - Brother Max and Nat just had a baby boy!!!  As of today he is a whole 5 days old!!  Max also LOVES Ace Ventura and Scarface.
- Something to do with Daddy would be amazingly awesome!
- This Jack Daniels soap bottle would be great for his mancave http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513035150/

Natalie SIL Nat loves dancing and baking.  She has her own dance studio where she teaches kids.  She loves turtles.  She likes nautical themed things.  Shes a brand new wonderful Mommy!!
- Ballerina loaded charm bracelet
- A business card holder

I claim mama24boyz for the stamped Madden pendant for Nat.  This is my first claim this round.  (1/0/0)

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.

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

These awesome charger pockets:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050639694694/

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 claim Glasskicker for wall charger pockets

1 claims  / 0 in transit / 0 received

Glasskicker for wall charger pockets (claimed)

My name is Christy and I live in Maryland.  I am a stay at home mommy of one really energetic and crazy hilarious daughter.  We also have a lil chihuahua "ChiChi" and a chunky bunny "Fuzz Ball". I am originally from Austin, Texas and even though I love the seasons in Maryland, I am hoping to move back to crazy hot Austin when my husband retires from the Navy.  I picked up sewing about 2 years ago and have become a crafting freak.  Finding Craftster was awesome for me, I'm so addicted to swapping now.

My Craftster Pinterest folder has some extra ideas so if you want to craft something from there  please PM me first to make sure it is still available (I'm in the ongoing wishlist swap as well).  Also, feel free to check out my other pinterest boards because they are full of projects I probably won't do myself dangit http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/ 

I have tons of nieces/nephews and adults in my family so I will be putting a number in parenthesis for the total amount I would want of an item, but I don't expect you to fulfill that total number (unless you are a lil crazy, woop woop).  I'm totally using this list as my personal gift-giving list as well, so if I get a chance to sew things off this list myself I will be taking them off. There is only one family group of mine with allergies (peanut, animal, and smoke) so I will note when a gift needs to be allergen free (there's only a few).

My daughter would love a suitcase pony playhouse, run with it http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773518660/

Also, this knitted minecraft hat, the tutorial is a perfect size 8 I think

My daughter (size 8 or kids medium) refuses to give up last years ratted out kitty hoodie (this is it, pretty simple http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573552) , so I'd love to get her one made with some of her favorite specifics: (triple bonus) glow in the dark eyes/paws (her current one is glow in the dark), cute ears on hood, a deeper than normal hood to cover her face better (we like to walk to school especially in the winter so it will keep wind off her cheeks better), built-in fingerless paws (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573555/) and ooooh a detachable tail (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573525/).
The links are examples with different specifics in them, feel free to create your interpretation, she will freak out over any kitty hoodie I'm sure.

GGma: loves Cardinals (the bird, not team) so maybe a mug rug (she loves her coffee too),  tote bag,  pouch or anything else with a cardinal theme.  She reads and is active in church.

Mawmaw: She's an adorable, active,  social lil wino lol. She's in a group called the Ya-Ya's that travel and eat out together a lot so I would LOVE anything you can come up with that incorporates any of that.   

Etched wine glasses for my Mawmaw, she loves her wine! Something funny like her favorite saying "big girl at night, big girl in the morning" or "it's wine-o-clock" or something like this http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395164/

ANYTHING Grumpy Cat: mug rug, pouch, hoopla, anything!

wine cork stands (would love any shape/size) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773070638/

KIDS  (note allergens)

Ladies First:::::: 

My nieces love the movie Camp Rock so anything themed to that would freak them out (they are seriously so easy to please, love it!)

Baby Girls: head bands, ruffle bloomers, onesie dresses, fabric shoes, anything girly.  By Christmas one will be 4 months (***allergies in that household***) and the other will be almost a year old.

super cute fox scarf (doesn't have to be exact, but rusty fox colors would be great) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395069/

Any kind of cute animal scarves for my young nieces/nephews

(5) super hero fort kit -- any boyish colors/themes.  ****One of these kits needs to be from an allergen free home,  please let me know  if you have allergens  in your home so I don't  give it to them, thanks! ****

Game themed zip pouch to hold my 9 yo nephews DS and games  (Mario, skylanders, kerbey, etc)

Another 9 yo nephew is really into Boy Scouts, so anything themed to that would be great.it seems like they go camping a lot.   He's also really into science and building contraptions, so any kinds of kits you can throw together would be great (I saw a contraption kit on pinterest, I'll try to find the link...)

I have 3 nephews (6, 4, 2.5---- brothers******ALLERGIES****) that are into superheroes so different superhero masks/capes/cuffs/shoe-wings/whatever would be hilarious

fabric chess set, anything but pink (if you don't have chess pieces, I would love checkers pieces made out of felt or something )  for nephew     http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773359817/

(unlimited) constellation shadow cards would be great stocking stuffers http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773367809/

This is my 1st claim  / 0 in transit / 0 received

Hello, I am Eszter from Hungary (Europe). I am living in Budapest (capital of Hungary) with my husband and my 2.5 years old son. We don't have any allergies, and I think, no one in my Christmas list. I am not prepared well yet, but I think, I can give you some ideas, what I would like to give to my family and friends. I might will upload more and more items, as soon as something coming to my mind.


My son:
He is 2.5 years old. I am renovating his room (we want to move soon from this flat, so we don't want to buy expensive things here). He has green walls, and a lot of stuff what I've made from our old jeans. So, here are some ideas what came to my mind:
 - SEWING: any type of denim stuffed animals (http://pinterest.com/pin/32158584812343698/ , http://pinterest.com/pin/276127020876276597/ , http://pinterest.com/pin/139189444705673751/ etc...)
