I know that last year there was a Christmas present swap, but I found out about it after Christmas. Would anybody be interested in swapping this year? If so, post a list of crafts that you make that you are willing to swap and what sort of gifts you are looking for. I know that I am looking for gifts to give to the men in my family, and also for gifts for the women that are something I have never given them in the past.
Things I make and can swap:
Altered domino necklaces - you choose the color or colors and tell me what sort of things you like. I can stamp or add other embellishments Here are sort of what they look like. This isn't my photo, but it will give you an example - http://www.flickr.com/photos/15927968@N00/2753854508/in/photostream/ I'll get a photo of my work up this week.
Crocheted potholders - tell me your colors and give me a couple of days, they are acrylic and will last for years. Some of my grandmother's are older than me.
Glass beaded earrings and matching pendants - pretty much any color. I don't make the beads, but I do use quite a few vintage beads and each peice is unique.
Magnetic Clothespins - Tell me your colors and I'll make a set to match your kitchen or office. I use high powered neodynium magnets and these are very popular with my family and friends.

I participated in this last year and enjoyed it a lot.
Last year I made crochet top kitchen towels. I would also be glad to make hats, slippers or mittens.
These aren't my pictures, but they are the type of patterns I use so you can get an idea.
If you have any other requests, I'm willing to check out patterns and let you know if it's doable. With time considerations
