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.
I also make doilies.

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
what they are, I will only make small items.
