Mine was done  week ago but I finally made it to the post office this morning.  I sure hope my partner likes it

It's hot and humid this weekend, so it was the perfect time to spend a couple hours in my nice cool basement craft room (only disadvantage is the lighting isn't great).  Got my badge done and I'm happy with it.  I hope petskin likes it.

I just need to get it packaged up and mailed out early this week.  It's gonna kill me not to share pictures though Smiley

audio - brain fabric? Absolutely perfect and yet creepy.

Checking in. I haven't started because we had an extended wedding weekend but I at least have a plan and hope to get mine done by this weekend.

Horrible picture, but I want to thank Alliekat914 for my swap package!  She asked me for a review of the Brother Scan'n Cut and then sent me a new cutting mat.  It's super-long and should be great for those larger projects!

I received my partner's questionnaire and I'm excited to start looking for ideas!

Thank you! I've had a busy month but I just couldn't stay away Smiley

I'm claiming anna.wahnsinn for a big beautiful purple beanie!  Due June 3rd

5/24; I added some more to my pinterest board. Also, some additional ideas below.
I'm Carmen from Wisconsin, married to Dave for 20 years and we have a 5 year old daughter, a whiny Basset Hound and a dozen laying hens.  Our passion is DIY projects and making foods from scratch.  

Allergies: mold/mildew; I also can't handle strong scents (perfumes, smoke)

I'm perfectly fine with thrifted, recycled, or gently used items
pinterest and etsy faves for stalking.

I have Swap supplies and Swap wish boards on Pinterest, but feel free to check out my other boards, especially the sewing one as I'm pretty weak in sewing techniques.

LIKES
Favorite colors and combos: jewel tones and primary colors - esp blue (Delft!, cobalt), green and their darker versions (maroon, navy, etc), neutrals; lately I'm liking the aqua/pale yellow/grey combo, bright pink
Favorite animals: chickens, bunnies, mice, non-scary dragons
Favorite movies/tv shows: Foyle's War / WWII era, NCIS (Gibbs!), anything with Cary Grant (esp Father Goose), Disney and Pixar, Phineas & Ferb. We love movies! I would be happy with anything related to Disney or Pixar movies (we've seen most but I can give a specific list if needed. Also recent favs are Hotel Transylvania (I {heart} Dennis, My Little Pony, How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda, Despicable Me ... you get the idea?
Patterns/themes I love: chevrons, flowers, hexagons, toile, organizing (if it holds something else, I love it!)*, food/cooking-related, polka dots, angels, Green Bay Packers, gardening, Norway, chickens/farm, Biblical

DISLIKES
Least favorite colors: orange, olive green, neons/chartreuse, turquoise
Least favorite themes/patterns: sharp angular geometrics, steampunk, zodiac, mustaches, clowns, sock monkeys, horror, zombies

In no particular order
Sewing
I need some journal pen holders for an A5-sized notebook.
any bags, totes, baskets, box pouch / shaving kit (similar to these) - see * note above.
I could use a new lunch bag, but I don't care for the paper-sack style; it needs to fit my pyrex dishes (min 7.5x6x3")
cloth napkins
small wallet - only big enough to hold 2-3 cards and maybe a little cash OR a waist/fanny pack (has to be big enough to fit XL around)
placemats - something that will go with pale yellow, dark green or light/bright blue
Barbie or Ken clothes - we esp need pants for Ken and dresses are always fun.  Simple Barbie dresses like this are fine
ballet slippers like these
cloth panty liners, preferably with snaps
fabric scarves - multi-colors are great because I can match with more outfits

Other crafts
Jewelry; I love delicate pieces and dangling earrings.  Also shawl pins.  I haven't gone much beyond connecting jump rings - so fancier hooks/fittings, wire wrapped-stones, etc. would be great.
Knit/crochet - I do a lot of this myself but I'd love some bunnies or other amigurumi
Garden decorations such as dragonflies or shiny things
Fabric or ribbon bows
Decorated hoop for my craft room (light blue walls)

Supplies
watercolor paper
replacement Brother Scan-n-Cut mats (like Cricut/Silhouette but different brand)
bookmarks - homemade are great!  I always seem to be using scrap pieces of paper.
Yarn ideas: especially in the lace through DK weights; gradient yarns (long colorways) or gradient mini skeins; I've heard good things Wollmeize yarns, but haven't tried them yet; solid or semi-solid sock yarns - I only seem to have multi-colored ones
plain t-shirts or sweatshirts in sizes child 7/8-12, women's XL and men's 2-3X tall. (I love doing freezer paper stenciling)
scrapbooking pens / markers and ink pads (mine are drying out).  I really need a brown ink pad
fabric - looking specifically for patriotic colors, esp dark blue, red, white; would be ok with "antique" versions of these colors.  But really any fabric - current stash is limited; I love vintage and Riley Blake
jump rings in variety of colors and sizes
die-cutting templates (spellbinders, etc) and embossing folders
any miniatures, esp those that would work well in a fairy garden
buttons - especially large plain and fun. I add these to crocheted flowers and slippers
Bullet journal supplies: washi tape, colorful pens, etc.
pie in the sky: gallon-sized glass jars
peppermint essential oil (other scents welcome too); I've been itching to try making fancier soaps.

Books - Used is perfectly fine
Harmony Knit or Crochet guides  I have a few already pm me for a list.  Or any other knit/crochet stitch dictionaries

Misc
I love miniature anything.  Tiny = terrific!
Something from your state or country that I can start teaching my daughter about the world
Or any surprise!  We love getting mail  Smiley

My package arrive this afternoon from Alliekat914.  Thank you!  You just said you were going to send "supplies" so I had no clue what it might be.  I have had this terrible itch the past couple days to try something in watercolors - I was getting desperate and thinking of just using some regular cardstock (I *think* I have a child's watercolor paint set around here somewhere).  It's a gorgeous day and I'm now torn between spending it outside and painting ... maybe I should just set up to paint outside  Grin  Cheesy Roll Eyes  You picked the perfect supplies to send - thank you Allison!!

I cannot for the life of me figure out how y'all do that cool knitting picture thing

I've made picture washcloths before: they are knit with flat stitches for most of it and a different stitch every time you want to accent the picture or outline.  They can be fun, but I've found they are easier to do when you can concentrate fully as you have to keep counting!

I am really impressed with all the wonderful goodies everyone created for this swap!!
