1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 107, 108, & 109 Gallery & Discussion on: November 15, 2014 06:38:07 PM
I got a bunch of tiny polished rocks from rscowtown.   Levi mixed them in with some bigger rocks and marbles he had already, and made a spot for his hermit crab to play in.   

The little rocks are going to end up in a smaller bowl when I can find one, for a meditation type thing that Levi saw at a Native American festival.   Levi is a "sensory seeker" kinda kid so enjoys sensory type experiences - playing with tiny rocks is relaxing, and fun!

I Leigh-Ann, a single mom to Levi, who is 7.  We live in Florida, and I work as a nanny and go to college full time.   Levi is homeschooled.   We are vegetarian and tying to live in a more minimalist way, so functional items are much appreciated.   I also love getting supplies!   We are both very allergic to smoke. 



Likes: bright colors (rainbow, citrus, ocean colors, grey+bright color, etc), batik, simple clean lines, stripes, dots, etc.  functional items, the beach, environmentally friendly things



Levi likes: homeschooling, bright colors (pink, purple, turquoise, neons), playing outside, bike riding, skate boarding, surfing, the beach, gymnastics, archery, science, history, playing his violin.

I claim rscowtown for scrappy placemats

Claims: 1


Hi!  I'm Leigh-Ann - I'm a single mom to Levi, who is 7 and a homeschooler.  I work as a nanny and teach RE classes at a UU "church".    I'm trying to reduce the amount of "stuff" in our lives so I'd love things that are functional.   
I am very allergic to smoke, and Levi has some food allergies.   We are also both vegetarian, so no leather/feathers/steak etc please. 

Things I like:   Bright colors, rainbow colors, citrus colors (yellow, orange, lime green), grey combined with a brighter color (i.e. turquoise), stripes, solids, dots, chevron.  Modern, clean lines Happy colors.  Beach/ocean inspired stuff, nature inspired stuff.  Functional items.   

Things Levi likes:  Purple, pink, turquoise.  Anything neon.   Playing outside, being active.  Swim team, gymnastics, playing his violin.  Surfing.  The beach.  Dirt.   

Things we don't like:  smoke, leather/feathers, lace, fru fru things, flowery things.  Vintage or "shabby chic" stuff, patriotic stuff, camo colors/print. itchy things.  things that a purely decorative (unless its something on my pintrest). 

This is my pintrest: http://www.pinterest.com/leighi123/ 
There is a TON of stuff on there - I'd like any of it, or things inspired by stuff on there (i.e. you can see from the quilt section the colors I love!).    Anything on there is fair game (the embroidery designs with a heading are all ones I have, but there is one page of embroidery designs I don't have but want)   

Crafted things:

small goodies to put into pockets of a christmas advent calendar.  Can be anything a 7yr old might like.   I need a bunch of these and always have a hard time finding stuff! 

Anything fused glass in rainbow, ocean or citrus colors - wind chime, sun catcher, small dish, etc.    Ocean theme, or rainbow, or sun, or just something totally random.    (bowl, dish, suncatcher, wind chime, etc)

Rainbow quilt, throw size or bigger - lots of ideas on my pintrest here: http://www.pinterest.com/leighi123/quilts-blankets-other-quilted-stuff/

handmade natural lip balm/chapstick (prefer no artificial ingredients, essential oils are fine!)

Book bag like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/45950858668346696/   But BIG with long-ish, strong straps.   Does not need library card holder, but a outside zip/snap/velcro pocket for my wallet would be nice, and a d-ring or something to clip my keys on.   We get lots of library books!  

Resin: Hairy spoon rest or coaster, for my sister.  I will send dog hair!  (I know, this is totally gross): http://www.pinterest.com/pin/37154765646501877/

Fingerless gloves for my 7yr old (I can measure whatever is needed) - fun, bright colors (purple and turquoise and anything neon are his favorites) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/45950858667834850/
