i am seventeen, and live in Texas near Dallas/Ft. Worth. i play guitar and mandolin, i collect zines (and make one occasionally), and i will try just about any craft once. WISHLIST
first off, here's the link to my wist
it's still a baby, so there's not much to see, but it is a pretty good representation of my taste.kits
+a DIY spinning kit. i want to make a scarf from my cat's fur. LOL...
+ a DIY woodcarving kit. i've wanted to try it since i was little but i just don't know where to start. even if you just have a woodcarving tool, send that. i have blocks of wood all over my house. un-handmade
+ books -- fiction, nonfiction, coffee table books about nature, architecture, etc. i love writing in the style of dave eggers and jonathan safran foer. kind of like non-fiction-that-almost-wasn't. i also love any kind of instructional books, like how to meditate. just an example.
+ the newest issue of ReadyMade
-- my subscription is up! no stores in my area carry it!
+ craft magazines -- knitting, fiber art, or something completely new to me, if you wish! they don't have to be current.
+ zines. i don't care what they are about. if you have too many to count, like me, then maybe you want to get rid of some?? teehee. thanks to veganxwater
+ harmonica. if it's a piece of crap, send it. i can fix it. i don't care what key it is in. i need harmonicas!!
+ stickers. i've decided that life is more enjoyable with an abundance of stickers, so send away. the only kind of stickers i would not particularly enjoy are George Dubya stickers, or circus-themed stickers. thanks icebyrd67!!!handmade
+ anything handmade with owls, deer, trees, freight trains, or cute little sailboats on it! oh and fruit too!
+ felt dolls. i'm a fan of the deformed/monster-ish looking ones, or personified food objects, or personified trees, etc. really anything that's cute, i will love it. thanks tigarlilly!!
+ some kind of stationery. see above for hints on themes
+ something you love to make. i think it is very interesting to see what others do well. it doesn't have to be a tangible craft -- if you are in a band, send your music, if you like photography, send some photos. and so on.
+ anything handmade that goes on a head!! honestly, i'm always covering my head with stuff lately. hats, headbands, blah blah blah. i love cute things like hair clips with eggplants on them, for example.
+ an ipod cozy - i just got a 30gb video ipod, and i think it needs a cozy, but i think someone else could do it better than me. err. maybe an undersea theme! that would be cool. thanks Trip_and_fall!!!
+ a mix cd of your favorite music. (I'm keeping this one up!)Supplies
+ Noro Kureyon!! in some bright colors. I just cannot find this stuff anywhere and i don't like to buy yarn online (it can get dangerous!) maybe somebody's got some laying around that she (he?) doesn't use.
+ size 8 wooden circular needles, preferably 24", but whatever, really. someone stole mine! =[
