1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: STS Spring Market 2014 Discussion Thread!! on: March 17, 2014 10:01:50 PM
I am confused...Are the shops open now or do they open April 14?

I can't wait to get mine open. I will be offering Waldorf style wood toys, some sewn cuteness and some hand dyed stuff. And whatever stuff I can convince myself to destash...hehehe.

I am sure I will find plenty--much more than I need--to receive knowing what a great group of crafters are here.

3  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: March 2014 Ongoing Pinterest Swap on: March 17, 2014 08:08:17 PM
Hi all--
I'm Jenn from Central Oregon. To sum me up in a single sentence: I am a wonderful woman, wife, mother, grandmother, joey clown, gardener, dreamer, writer, friend, DIYer, fiber lover, crafter, swapper and want-to-be homesteader trying to live life on purpose.

I love giving gifts so swapping is quickly becoming my addiction. I always do my best and certainly frill each project with happy thoughts and lots of love.

While I will be grateful for anything I receive I really to prefer natural fibers--especially if it is going to be against my skin. I love wool and cotton. Sadly, I am allergic to most scents especially cigarette smoke. Pets are fine.

Because my Pinterest is full of pins for so many of my various hobbies, I made a board specifically for this swap. Here is the link: http://www.pinterest.com/jetrip/ongoing-pinterest-swap-wishlist/
It is "creatively" called my Ongoing Pinterest Swap Wish List.
I have one other wish list board called Wishlist for Ongoing Wish Swap that is also filled with things I would be thrilled to receive. They do overlap somewhat however. Here's the link for that one: http://www.pinterest.com/jetrip/wishlist-for-ongoing-wish-swap/
Please PM me before sending something from any other board just to be sure.

Thanks for considering choosing me!!!

About Me:
I am a wonderful middle age woman, wife, mother, grandmother, face painting clown, gardener, dreamer, writer, friend, DIYer, fiber lover, crafter and want-to-be homesteader trying to live life on purpose in Central Oregon. I am not an expert in any field but I love needle and wet felting, sewing for my home and my grand kiddos, photography, creating wooden animals, dying fibers and fabric, paper crafting, cooking from scratch, growing stuff, trying to knit, furniture restoring, interior design and creating my own household supplies. I am so completely thrilled to be a part of this swap. I promise I will be extremely thankful for any bit of loveliness you send my way.

Likes:
Anything handmade with love.
I love natural fibers & materials. Wood, beeswax, wool felt & organic cotton are some of my favs.
I like all things vintage, especially Mid-Century Modern.
I like lots of contrasting texture with more neutral colors.
I’m in love with the color gold right now. My other fav colors are turquoise and orange.
 I love nature and bringing the outside in so natural items that I can’t get in Central Oregon are always a treat.
Feel free to check out any of my Pinterest boards but my board called “Wishlist for Ongoing Wish Swap” includes all of my current wishes.  http://www.pinterest.com/jetrip/wishlist-for-ongoing-wish-swap/  
The stuff in BOLD on my wishlist is my priority although I would be thrilled with anything for the list.
I am so excited and looking forward to receiving lovingly made items from my WISHLIST. Currently, I am trying to build up my collection of Waldorf style toys for my playroom and Seasonal nature table area.
Thank you so much!!!

Dislikes:
We have allergies so please limit scented items. Fortunately pets don’t bother our senses just strong smells.
Plastic stuff made by children in poor countries.
Acrylic, polyester and other petroleum based fabrics

I claim sheepBlue for some sort of lunch container that closes on top and will fit a roughly 6x6 tupperware container at least with a handle in a funny fabric, some 6 inch wide lace, lip balm and knee hi socks.

1 claim/0 sent/0 received

I am a wonderful middle age woman, wife, mother, grandmother, face painting clown, gardener, dreamer, writer, friend, DIYer, fiber lover, crafter and want-to-be homesteader trying to live life on purpose in Central Oregon. I am not an expert in any field but I love needle and wet felting, sewing for my home and my grand kiddos, photography, creating wooden animals, dying fibers and fabric, paper crafting, cooking from scratch, growing stuff, trying to knit, furniture restoring, interior design and creating my own household supplies. I am so completely thrilled to be a part of this swap. I promise I will be extremely thankful for any bit of loveliness you send my way.

 I love nature and bringing the outside in so natural items that I can’t get in Central Oregon are always a treat.
Feel free to check out any of my Pinterest boards but my board called “Wishlist for Ongoing Wish Swap” includes all of my current wishes.  http://www.pinterest.com/jetrip/wishlist-for-ongoing-wish-swap/ 
The first three sections of my wishlist are my priority although I would be thrilled with anything for the list.
I am so excited and looking forward to receiving lovingly made items from my wishlist. Currently, I am trying to build up my collection of Waldorf style toys for my playroom and seasonal nature table area.
Thank you so much!!!

Dislikes:
We have allergies so please limit scented items. Fortunately pets don’t bother our senses just strong smells.
Plastic stuff made by children in poor countries.
Acrylic, polyester and other petroleum based fabrics

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 100 Discussion on: February 06, 2014 02:57:39 PM
I just finished the bowling set I sewed for anna.wahnsinn. I am so excited I may have to make another set for my grands. Now I'm off to the scroll saw to work on the wooden Vikings I promised gamemom42. I know I will be making a few of those sets. I hope to send those on Monday too so I better get to work...hehehe.

I claim gamemom42 for the Waldorf insired wooden viking set on her Pinterest board
2/0/0
I am a wonderful middle age woman, wife, mother, grandmother, face painting clown, gardener, dreamer, writer, friend, DIYer, fiber lover, crafter and want-to-be homesteader trying to live life on purpose in Central Oregon. I am not an expert in any field but I love needle and wet felting, sewing for my home and my grand kiddos, photography, creating wooden animals, dying fibers and fabric, paper crafting, cooking from scratch, growing stuff, trying to knit, furniture restoring, interior design and creating my own household supplies. I am so completely thrilled to be a part of this swap. I promise I will be extremely thankful for any bit of loveliness you send my way.

Likes:
Anything handmade with love.
I love natural fibers & materials. Wood, beeswax, wool felt & organic cotton are some of my favs.
I like all things vintage, especially Mid-Century Modern.
I like lots of contrasting texture with more neutral colors.
I’m in love with the color gold right now. My other fav colors are turquoise and orange.
 I love nature and bringing the outside in so natural items that I can’t get in Central Oregon are always a treat.
Feel free to check out any of my Pinterest boards but my board called “Wishlist for Ongoing Wish Swap” includes all of my current wishes.  http://www.pinterest.com/jetrip/wishlist-for-ongoing-wish-swap/ 
The first three sections of my wishlist are my priority although I would be thrilled with anything for the list.

Thank you so much!!!

8  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 100!!! on: January 30, 2014 02:14:40 AM
I call claim anna.wasnsinn for the bowling game due by 2/13/2014.
1/0/0
About Me:
I am a wonderful middle age woman, wife, mother, grandmother, face painting clown, gardener, dreamer, writer, friend, DIYer, fiber lover, crafter and want-to-be homesteader trying to live life on purpose in Central Oregon. I am not an expert in any field but I love needle and wet felting, sewing for my home and my grand kiddos, photography, creating wooden animals, dying fibers and fabric, paper crafting, cooking from scratch, growing stuff, trying to knit, furniture restoring, interior design and creating my own household supplies. I am so completely thrilled to be a part of this swap. I promise I will be extremely thankful for any bit of loveliness you send my way.

Likes:
Anything handmade with love.
I love natural fibers & materials. Wood, beeswax, wool felt & organic cotton are some of my favs.
I like all things vintage, especially Mid-Century Modern.
I like lots of contrasting texture with more neutral colors.
I’m in love with the color gold right now. My other fav colors are turquoise and orange.
 I love nature and bringing the outside in so natural items that I can’t get in Central Oregon are always a treat.
Feel free to check out any of my Pinterest boards but my board called “Wishlist for Ongoing Wish Swap” includes all of my current wishes.  http://www.pinterest.com/jetrip/wishlist-for-ongoing-wish-swap/  
The first three sections of my wishlist are my priority although I would be thrilled with anything for the list.
I am so excited and looking forward to receiving lovingly made items from my wishlist. Currently, I am trying to build up my collection of Waldorf style toys for my playroom and seasonal nature table area.
Thank you so much!!!

Dislikes:
We have allergies so please limit scented items. Fortunately pets don’t bother our senses just strong smells.
Plastic stuff made by children in poor countries.
Acrylic, polyester and other petroleum based fabrics

Wishlist:
I would be so grateful to have our play area refreshed with any of these lovely toys:

Oh dear me! I thought my stuff was up to par by looking at other swaps--this being my first and all--but you guys have upped the ante here. I guess the only thing I can do now is embellish... I was thinking of sending sooner rather than later but now I'm not so sure.
I love the cupcake bag--sooooo cute. Those cake balls look divine. That baby rattle is unbelievable! And Chuckleberry--my inner clown--has to get herself a pair of those bonbon earrings! I love the elephant and was thinking of ordering the pattern--thanks lukenlarry--then 14 hours times four grands popped into my head and I had second thoughts. hehehe. WOW! And the yummy chocolate. Oh boy.
