I'm back from home and my grandma's laid to rest.   Cry  Everything went as well as it possibly could and all the family was able to make it, so that's good at least.  I also got to meet my week old niece. 

I'll probably only manage the one claim this month, but I'd been eyeing Anne's list last round as well - now I just have to decide which thing I want to make!

I claim anna.wahnsinn for something off her pinterest (too many choices and I want to test some things out first). Due March 6th
1/0/0

Hi!  Im Alicia! Im a polymer chemist currently living in Pittsburgh, PA.  I live with my fiance and our two cats.

Likes:  lots of color! (especially blues and greens), argyle, sciencey things (chemistry especially of course), using old, unloved things to make new, useful ones, wolves, video games (I love Luigi and Pokemon), books (fantasy FTW), and tabletop RPGs (World of Darkness specifically)
 
Dislikes:  Super pink and cutesy or death/goth things.  Also, the color orange (its fine in small amounts, just dont generally like it as the main color).
 
No allergies here!

Crafts
 
Anything from my pinterest would be loved, as well as anything inspired by the things on there.  Crafts for DJ is the board for my fiance - he has gotten some great things from Craftster in the past, and theyre always appreciated!

Homemade lotions/body butters- I have eczema, so anything with dry skin love would be great (please no soap though, full up on that at the moment!). 

Knitted wool socks - US womens size 9.  I got turned on to these when I lived in Wisconsin, and they are the bomb!

Tie-dyed anything, especially clothing.  I would wear the crap out of just some basic tie dye t-shirts.

Alice in Wonderland themed kitchen towels or potholders.

Bowser amigurumi

Tree of life pendant

Friendship bracelet-style watch (example on pinterest)

A shadowbox with a mash up of the Hufflepuff and Slytherin house crests that can be used to display our two wands - we got engaged at Universal Studios in front of Hogwarts, so they are special to us.

Resin pendants - no bugs, but just about anything else that Ive seen put in resin would be cool.  Magnets would work too, instead of a pendant.

Flannel PJ pants - plaid would be extra awesome, and Id prefer drawstring over elastic waist.

Small duffel bag with room for Zumba gear - basically just tennis shoes and a change of clothes, but it needs to zip.

Hip bag (the kind without the lower leg strap) - examples on pinterest

Craft Supplies I totally support reusing supplies, so used is always okay. Im also okay with all-supply claims if you dont feel like crafting for me!
 
I just started to get into art journaling, so I would love any of the affiliated supplies, especially:
Acrylic paints- all colors
Stamps/stencils/ink pads (especially good background patterns or an alphabet set)
Embossing powder
Heat gun
Any kind of ink spray
Washi tape
Paint pens - the finer, the better

Fabric- plain cuts large enough to make clothing in things like wool, linen, nice cottons.  I have lots of crazy polyester prints, but I want to make some nice classic basics.  I dont really use quilting cottons.

Any garment sewing (not quilting) magazines, especially Threads and BurdaStyle/Burda World of Fashion

Lighter weights of iron on interfacing (for clothes, not bags) - knit or woven

Serger thread - any colors - groups of 3 or 4 cones is best

Cotton cording to make coiled fabric bowls - these are my go-to for charity sewing, so I use up a lot of this stuff!

Any of the sewing patterns on my Pattern Lust Pinterest Board

Thanks in advance to whoever makes my wish come true!!

I'm going to join in this craft along - I've recently discovered art journaling and am having an absolute ball with it.  Here are a few of my recent pages:




Thanks for putting this together - just googling techniques from this board is an education! I spent several hours yesterday making hot glue stencils and doing shaving cream marbling, and I totally got the gelatin to try a gelli plate.

So I've definitely been crafting, but it's all been art journaling!  I've definitely surpassed my original 10 page goal by a long shot.



I may have to figure out how exactly to count these moving forward, but at least I'm getting in the craft room.  This has definitely caused me to dig into some "deep stash" that hasn't seen the light of day for years and years.

I love that Firefly shirt!

That looks like tons of fun scrapbooking stuff, and James R. Pugley is an awesome name!

Sorry guys, I'm still around but my grandmother is in hospice so I don't want to claim until I know I have time to craft it properly.

Another fellow rejoiner after a several year hiatus! 

I may have to make some of those dog toys for friends... I have a ton of leftover fleece just taking up space in my stash.

I received my lovely package from JS!   It's a book from my Pinterest wish list and Pearl. N. Meyer, who is a scissors holder in awesome fabric.  On top of that, the "nose" and "arms" are actually a Pandora bracelet and Erlenmeyer charm! 



Thanks JS! Cheesy

I'm in again, too.  I probably won't claim until this weekend but I at least know I'll be in and ready!
