I'm in Maryland, and have stupid amounts of stalkable stuff-- see my profile or start here: swap info page
. Although a lot of it hasn't been updated very recently, so feel free to ask me as many questions as you want.
I'm allergic to tobacco-- and also pregnant!-- so if anybody in your house smokes, it might be better if you pick someone else.
*brightly colored (think basic crayon box, not pastels or pink) baby clothes. Probably winter weight in newborn-like sizes & summer-weight in 6 month; beyond that I'm not sure it's safe to speculate.
Good themes include N American wildlife, realistic dinosaurs, or space.
*baby blankets, see color/theme suggestions above. We're set for afgans, & I'm working on a fancy quilt, but more basic things to wrap the kid in seem potentially useful.
*diaper supplies... I'm planning to go the fold & pin with a waterproof cover route, but don't have anything yet. (and for transport I don't need a diaper bag, but wet packs would be good)
*a business card case, fairly small-form, to fit my 1/2 size cards. They're 3.5"x1" and don't quite fit in any of the spare tins I have lying around. (phoey!)
*french press slippers or similar, size 7-or-so (ravelry link
*I am a sucker for interesting yarn. Handspun & fun textures are cool. Or something soft, breathable & machine washable that would work for baby clothes. Or I'd love a magic yarn ball, but only if you (& the organizers) don't mind if I don't unroll it for swap pictures, so I get the fun of discovering what all is in it while I'm making it into something.
*Also fond of gloves with 3/4 length fingers, or fingerless/long wrist warmers. Size 7/medium. Warm is good, but so are lacy/frilly bits, so have fun.
*some handmade tarot cards or an ATC-sized alphabet. (no need to make a whole deck unless you're inspired!)
*hand or machine embroidered patches I can applique onto stuff-- check out my stalkables for artistic inspiration.
*naturalistic yard art (wildlife, ceramic mushrooms, bird houses with small holes & no perch... no garden gnomes please!) or interesting wind chimes
*a shawl like the first one here: yay, multicolored! yarn ends are awesome!
*a fairly straight-sided, microwaveable, ceramic mug that holds about 20 oz of liquid.
*handmade, inside-blank, greeting cards
*something else fun that doesn't take up too much space, inspired by my wist
(read the comments!) or etsy favorites
