1  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap 71 OPEN on: June 29, 2011 06:44:48 AM
I claim SMLounsbury for Altered Minnie Mouse shoes like these http://ny-image2.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.248452954.jpg in a toddlers size 4 and Birthday hat in Red, black and White http://www.etsy.com/listing/57640946/the-ultimate-minnie-birthday-hat and *maybe* a Disney suprise or too. The hubba works in the Magic Kingdom, so we might be able to come up with something special  Wink

1st claim, 0 sent, 0 received


My name is Jessica. I live in FL with my husband of (nearly) 4 years, our dog and 2 cats. I love my life. My favorite crafts are card making, embroidery, mosaics and knitting. My favorite colors are any shade of green, blue and pink. I am so excited to join this swap. This is like Christmas, but better! Thank you in advance to anyone who claims me. I love anything that is made with my interests in mind. I tried to be specific below to help the crafter out, I am not picky and I will love ANYTHING that is made for me. Now for the fun parts!!

HUGE WISH, will help me to knock some Christmas presents off my list!  Wink * Black rainboots with gold stenciled fleur de lis. Size 8 or 10. Weird request, I know. I saw someone wearing these and found them online for $40-60. I just can't do that, but I figure it can't be too difficult to stencil or paint the decorations on.

Another HUGE WISH, again with the Christmas presents (and I'd like some for myself too!) * Stenciled t shirts, size medium (most brands) - Either the state of Louisiana with the phrase "shaped like a boot because we kick ass" or one with the word "Love" across the chest, where the L is the state of Louisiana and the O is a heart. I wish I had images to back of these requests, but I cannot find anything, hence the request for them.

*Sun dresses, OBSESSED. I pretty much never wear shorts or pants if I don't have too. I have quite a few that need to be recyucled this year, so I need to restock . I know there are some great, simple patterns out there, but I don't have a working sewing machine at the moment. I have a whole Pinterest board devoted to these, so any variation of anything found here  http://pinterest.com/jrenewright/dresses/ would be great.

*Ruffled shower curtain, like this one: http://pinterest.com/pin/28002261/. This may be too big a wish,but if someone has the fabric available and the skill - I want this bad!

* Citrus fruit paintings. Any size, for my kitchen. Something like along these lines:http://pinterest.com/jrenewright/kitchen/ A citrus clock would be really cool too.

* A lap desk in colors that are bright and fun, something like this:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=37381856&ref=sr_gallery_6&&ga_search_query=lap+desk&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=2&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title

* Pillow covers with initials for my couch, any size. Id like them in shades of green, not neon more earthy.  Patterns are also great.  My first initial is J, my husbands is B, and our last name initial is W, so Id like a set of either J and B or 2 Ws. Heres a link to a my inspiration on Craftster: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=333252.0

*Drinking glasses with citrus fruit. Either stenciled or etched. I based my kitchen decorations around some Starbucks coffee mugs with big oranges, lemons, and limes, so those would be my preferences on the glasses as well.  Any shape/size galss is fine. More than likely theyll be on display anyway. Along this same line, Im interested in coffee mugs, plates or bowls in this theme. Basic pottery with paint and glaze. I have images I can email of the center piece of my inspiration. Other inspirations:http://pinterest.com/jrenewright/kitchen/

*A recipe box with matching recipe cards. I saw a set of these once in a happy homemaker swap and I decided I NEEDED to have one! Any kind of decorated box to hold a standard size card to write or glue recipes to. Ideally this would be something that I could continue to add too over time, so while the box and dividers could be embellished the cards should be relatively plain so that I can easily coordinate additional cards later. Either citrus fruit themed, orange/green/yellow themed, or cute food themed.  I have a few examples in my Etsy faves.

*Aprons for all seasons! I have a Christmas, Easter, St. Patty's, and Valentine's (thanks to Jemimiah for this one last round! ;)that are awesome, and I would like others. Id like holiday themes, so any holiday at all would be cool, even a duplicate of Christmas cause I celebrate from Thanksgiving until Christmas day. My kitchen
is citrus themed (curtains are Alexander Henry citrus pattern, so that would be amazing, to get one in that fabric!), and I also love stars, polka dots, and rainbows. Cute foods like cupcakes would make a good one too. I like full and half aprons, pockets or no pockets, pom poms - whatever! Pier One has some great ones right now, http://www.pier1.com/SearchResults/tabid/37/txtSearch/aprons/Search/aprons/List/0/Default.aspx, great examples of how anything goes here.

*Pretty much anything with a buck, since my husband's name is Buck. I have a bunch of stuff in my Etsy faves in this theme. I espcially would like some sort of jewelry so that I can take him with me everywhere <3

*Homemade peppermint soap. No just the scent, but actually peppermint so it gives that tingly feeling.

*Organizational/office stuff like decorative file folders, push pins, paper clips. For the pins and clips I prefer fabric or poly clay decorations, buttons are cute too.

*Stenciled t shirts in Always Sunny (Charlie is my fav) or Veronica Mars themes size Med

*A hanging sign of some sort that says "We get along in our RV" with a picture of an RV would be super cute. Small size, like to hang on the wall in an RV.

Any kind of Pinterest suprise: http://pinterest.com/jrenewright/

Supplies
Jewelry charms. I have lots of charm bracelets to make for Christmas, so pretty much anything will do. Whatever it is, I am sure it will fit someone's personality!
Various size chains
Broken glass, broken tiles, or any little trinkets that would be good for mosaics.
Grout
Blank pre cut cards or cardstock for making cards.
Embroidery hoops and floss

Extras
Fotunes from fortune cookies
Paint sample cards, like from the paint section of home depot
Yarn and ribbon scraps, at least 4 inches. For a scrappy scarf I'd like to make.
Always loooove gummi candy
Scraps of fabric good for embroidery projects

Hi all! Kbauer recevied my package, but isn't able to post at the moment so she has asked me to get some pics up for her. I sent a rainbow painting from her Pinterest.



I also sent 2 embroidered, button flower note cards, but I forgot to get pictures of those Sad K, if when you get caught up if you can post of a pic of those that would be great - if you don't use them first Wink

I also received my package yesterday, all the way from New Zealand! I LOVE my apron and will be posting pics this afternoon. Thanks so much jemimah!

I've done a lot of receiving lately, and not a lot of posting. Time to get caught up, these ladies deserve some credit for the awesome work:

First up, 6iggle sent a painting of my dog. I posted a pic already, but here's one of the subject with his painting  Cheesy





This was a gift for my husband's birthday and he loved it.

Next are some super comfy and cute slippers from Pinkleo - in my favorite color!







And my 3rd package was from frosty772. It is a st. Patty's day apron, a great addition to my collection. Frosty put in a lot of work on this thing. I lot of details.



In the background is my husband's bottle collection (part of it anyway). Not sure what is going on with my face?

They say "you and me, it's the real thing".  Grin



Another shot of the notecards with a great southern cooking cook book

I recieved from 6iggle on Tuesday, but I've been without inernet until today. I requested a portrait of my dog - pictured in my profile pic - for my husband's birthday. He LOVED it. He cried when he opened it!! 6iggle, thank you SO much, this was the best birthday gift I have ever given. Be on the lookout for me to update with more pictures. Mu hubby has the camera down at Bike Week, but I really wanted to get something up right away to pay thanks to 6iggle.



Amazing, right?
