21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Gallery and Discussion Round 131 (Oct. 2016) on: October 10, 2016 06:37:20 PM
Averia, the LV swap is sooooo time consuming, especially at the end, but it's so addicting!  I keep telling myself I'm taking a round off, but I never do.

I just claimed rscowtown for some quilt squares, I think I have a few somewhere (I'll have to check some because a few have floral fabric, but I'm not sure about roses) and I have a lot of scraps, sewing has become fun though because New Dog hates my sewing machine, but the weather is such she's spending more time outside, so maybe I can do some sewing this weekend...

I claim rscowtown for scrap quilt squares (sans clowns and roses). 


Hi, I'm Michelle, I live in Kansas (USA) with a husband and a dog.  I am allergic to hemp fibers and oils, so nothing with that in it, please.

Things you could make me:

Shopping bags!  In part to be environmentally friendly, in part because these things are awesome and can hold tons and I always get compliments.  And I can never have too many... http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177482.0

I need a dog walking bag.  I have no link to anything, but what I need is a cross-body, open-top bag big enough for a leash, tennis ball, bag of treats, and waste disposal bags.  Also an outside pocket for my phone, and a plastic-lined compartment for... used waste-disposal bags would be nice.  Preferably in dog-themed fabric, just because.

Double-pointed knitting needle holders: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/272045633717327348/ (I made myself one and loooooove it and need more!)

These are ones I've made for other people that I'd really love to have a version of (it's so much easier to make things for other people, isn't it?):

Ones I would really like:

Original Artwork - I have a pinboard that shows kinda what I like: https://www.pinterest.com/smeddley/art-i-like/

Huge wish: Bear coasters! https://www.pinterest.com/pin/272045633713437917/

Another bigger wish: Poppets and Character Sock Monkeys

Anything on any of my boards marks "swap inspirations" : https://www.pinterest.com/smeddley/ - some of the stuff on the other boards I pinned for other people, or because I planned on making it for a specific use (that may be O.B.E. (overcome by events)), but the stuff on these boards is all stuff I like and would want for me.

Things that could be made or purchased, depending on your crafting skill set:
Spinny yarn thingee
Yarn bowl
Hair sticks
Drop Spindle
Journals/Junk Journals/Fabric Journals

Supplies I can never have enough of:
Crochet hooks and knitting needles
Safety eyes, all sized
Art Stencils
Ephemera for art/journaling
Art supplies of all types
Elastic (especially wide, for knitting needle holders)
A snap fastener
Clay molds and tools

Anything on my Amazon Wish List: https://amzn.com/w/U8SFM57GL0LN (but please be sure to mark it purchased, because it's my birthday month, and I've shared it with friends and family as well!)

Thank you for looking at my list, if you have any questions, feel free to pm me!

Me three, I kind of know where some things are (earlier or later, I tried to work up to my favorite!) but I don't remember the exact order.

So much amazing stuff... I want to comment on it all, but I don't know if I should wait and just do it all at once... I just keep going through to see if people have added new things!  So many ideas... I think "why didn't I think of that?!"  I'm definitely going to be doing some pinning...

I'm going to hop in, I have a huge stash of stuff and hopefully some of it will be on some wish lists, and I love crafting new things. I'll send in my Q asap, but the list is gonna take a bit to work on...

What, no one wants to come and visit me? But Kansas is a hotbed of activity and tourist destinations, we have... *looks around* ... um... (we do have the world's largest ball of twine and the geographic center of the US, but I get that they're not everyone's cup of tea and it's not Disney Wold...  plus those are actually several hours drive from here).

I've been very boring the last few rounds, we're not dancing as much, there aren't as many shows, and I've just been a bit of a hermit...  I'll sign up for the next round, of course, but just fair warning it's not exciting here like some other places! We tend to do a lot of crafts and cooking...

I bake cookies every weekend, never thought to offer something like that.  I make traditional, chocolate chip and whatnot, but also bacon breakfast cookies, sauerkraut chocolate cookies, cottage cheese cookies... you name it!  And right now, PUMPKIN EVERYTHING.  Seriously, everything in my house has been taken over by PUMPKIN ALL THE THINGS 2016 (shameless plus, instagram pics daily until Thanksgiving under the username smeddleys).

I've been so overwhelmed by first the 13 days of halloween swap and then getting my LV ready to send back, I haven't made much, but as soon as I finish the blood drops for our blood drive (Thursday) I'll get to work on some new stuff.

And cleaning for company meant I didn't so much neatly go through stuff and pack it up to go to the charity shop, but heaved everything into my craft room.  Seriously, can't walk in there.  As I did it out, I will probably have some supplies to destash, if there's anything anyone is looking for...

Oh, good!! Note to self, always put a small value from now on...  usually I do, but since the form was weird and new and he asked me, and I was like... "eh, nothing, really, just handmade stuff" (mostly).

I'm not sure "pretty" is what I was going for, though... *chews lip nervously*  There should have been a bloodcurdling scream and she should have been plagued by nightmares...

Oooooh yes, congratulations!  I love that purse, gozer!  And I think the only thing better than getting a project you made featured is when it's a project made FOR you that gets featured!  Loooove my killer bunny pillow!

[Cursed, this swap is, CURSED!  Sad

It sure is!!!! I really hope it is only a formality. I hope I am going to find out on Tuesday because Monday is a public holiday Angry Plus they wrote I will have to pay each day for them to store the package. I already know that I am going to freak out once Im there.

Do what?!  Storage fee?  Wow.  I have never heard of such a thing!  I've sent stuff to people c/o "the post office" and they don't have this much trouble.  (Seriously, I sent a package to a boater passing through the Bahamas, and sent it to "Counter delivery" at the post office.  I called to ask their address, and they were all, "we're the post office".  And I was like, "yeah, and what's your address?" and she said "THE POST OFFICE".  Fun times, fun times.  But that didn't cost them anything!).

I have never had this much trouble sending a package overseas, BUT! It was a brand new customs form and the first time the guy at the post office had processed one, so I really hope it didn't just get screwed up somehow.  :/  Like it accidentally said it was Snakehead Fish Eggs and Invasive Weevil Mites or something... :/

I will wait to open until you get yours, then we can binge and catch up!
