I claim mama24boyz for a set of the fabric alphabet letters with magnets in em.

This would be my first claim this round 1/0/0

Hi I'm Laurel from Wisconsin. Married to Mark for 30 years, mom to a boy 21 and girl 26 and grandma to a 4 year old. We have 3 rescued dachshunds, I love the old ugly ones that no one wants or ones with no teeth or had back surgery.

** Please pm me if you find something on my pin boards that isn't listed below, sometimes I pin stuff for ideas but may have already made the item and forgotten to mark it or just pinned it for a random idea.

*Here are my swap/claim wish lists:  http://www.pinterest.com/rscowtown/oh-yeah-part-1-of-my-wish-list/

Other stuff that I like:
Table runners, ours is 120 long but doesnt need to be that big.
Prayer flags
Dandilion art
Patriotic stuff
Stuff with the sun on it
Religious phrases/bible verses that can go on the wall


D-rings 1"
D-rings 1-1/2"
I had bought like 100 of them and have looked all over, i mean ripped the craft room apart and they are nowhere to be found Sad(( im thinking they may have jumped to their death in the trash can and got tossed by mistake, so I need me some more.

would love some of the spray inks, any brand any colors
tho I am partial to:

Keys: im searching for keys to make these:
so im looking for...
old house keys
old skeleton keys
old misc. keys but not blanks

100% cotton thread in the larger spool in white (for when I make the microwave bowl holders)
100% cotton thread "                " in off white or tan

seaglass pieces that are 1+" ish in size would be great, blues, purples, greens are my favs

DOILIES ooh I would love a boatload of these, from your thrift store hand made would be sweet, 4" ish and 8" ish (and the ish is just a total ball park, if you find some that are smaller or bigger, low price and sweet looking, they would be fine)

a set of the markers to write on mugs that you then put in the oven to set the ink, i keep seeing on pinterest that "regular" sharpie markers are not the right ones for this; I have some of the regular ones already.

chandelier crystals with hooks or holes in them. any shapes, they would be great to add to mobiles and sun catchers

Thanks for claiming me!!

This space reserved for the last person in round 106.

And Gingerpeachy was the last to claim so she is the first on on the list to be claimed....

Hi!  My name is Ginger and I live in San Diego, CA with my dude.  we don't have any furry children, but we do have TWINS on the way! Not sure what their genders are, but we should find out soonish.  I'm not very far along yet, so I'm not going to ask for many baby things.

We recently moved out of state, and I had to get rid of a lot of my things (long story)...so my house is pretty barren right now.  We definitely need more functional and/or decorative household type stuff. 

I love knitting, embroidery/cross-stitch, and sewing.  My fella and I are soapmakers, and we had a deep appreciation for handmade soap and other bath/body products.  I recently learned how to handspin yarn, though I've been holding off due to a shoulder injury.  I also love to paint with acrylics and watercolors.

I have a very kitschy, quirky sense of style. I love jewel tones for things around the house, but my favorite colors to wear are DARK purple, dark grey/charcoal, navy blue, and black.  I really like deep red shades too.

I'm a sucker for terrariums, foxes, amigurumi, pandas, chococat, kitties, boston terriers (we are getting one when we move into a house at the end of the year!) and jars of whimsies.

I enjoy fabrics that have tiny patterns (which almost look like the designs that you see on origami paper) retro floral patterns are pretty neat too. I also like black and white tiny polka dots.


-A retro apron. I love the kind with ruffles on the bottom.  Kinda like this http://www.allfreesewing.com/Aprons/Easy-Ruffle-Apron

-Box bag for craft stuff.  http://www.craftsy.com/project/pattern/sewing/accessory/no-guts-boxie-pouch/13424

-Japanese knot bags. I can never have too many of these! They are so perfect for knitting.

-I need knitting needle cases very badly. Especially one for DPNs.  I like how this case is constructed - https://www.etsy.com/listing/57170147/needle-case-needle-holder-craft-bag?ref=shop_home_active_17

-Wallet http://oliverands.com/product/OLV-SS005HA1.html

-Zip up bags for craft supplies


-Knitted or crocheted amigurumi toys for the babies.  Please make sure that they are baby safe (no buttons, etc)

-Baby beanies in earth tones or gender neutral colors.

-French Press Felted slippers, size 10. https://www.etsy.com/listing/41507335/pdf-pattern-download-french-press-felted

-Amigurumi cactus in a tiny clay pot.  I had one of these that I received from a previous swap, and it got lost in our last move.  I'm so bummed.  It was the cutest thing ever! http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/cf/73/7c/cf737c3f3bc986d31654595a92c79bea.jpg

-Knitted socks (I can dream, right?)

-Big chunky knitted cowls

-Fluffy bunny slippers, size 10 http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fluffy-bunny-slippers

-My dear, a deer trophy http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/my-dear---a-deer-trophy

-Mini fox scarf http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mr-fox-stole-my-heart--mini-fox

-mug cozies like this one. https://www.etsy.com/transaction/162271470?

-Peekaboo mitts http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/peekaboo-mitts


-Embroidery pendants. I love the kind with little flowers, or maybe even a tiny fox.  This one is pretty cool https://www.etsy.com/listing/174854834/poppy-field-hand-embroidery-pendant?ref=shop_home_active_1&ga_search_query=poppy

-Terrarium pendants (there are some on my pinterest)

-I love little bracelets made from tiny czech glass flowers like these https://www.etsy.com/listing/171023464/stackables-bracelets-collectible-beaded?ref=unav_listing-same

-I've been meaning to make one of these necklaces for years, and would totally love one.  They're little metal shapes with embroidery floss crocheted around it.  Pretty neat!  https://www.etsy.com/listing/122357934/pink-bib-necklace-crochet-leaves-beaded?ref=shop_home_active

-Felted cuff bracelets https://www.etsy.com/listing/199612906/floral-embroidered-cuff-bracelet-textile?ref=listing-shop-header-2

Household things

-Little terrariums

-Embroidery hoopla. I used to have a massive collection, but it all got destroyed in the move. Please check out my pinterest for ideas.

-Throw pillow covers, knitted or embroidered. This one is perfect https://www.etsy.com/listing/62772666/hand-embroidered-linen-pillow-cover?ref=sr_gallery_33&ga_search_query=floor+cushion&ga_page=2&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade in dark purple or red

-Potholders, knitted/crocheted or sewn.

-Dishcloths/kitchen scrubbies

-Embroidered napkins and placemats.  These are perfect - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/261560690831100196/  Free pattern here - http://www.feelingstitchy.com/2011/02/wanna-stitchalong-with-us.html.  I also like Scandinavian embroidery designs.

-these crocheted organizer bag thingies. http://www.lutteridyl.dk/2011/09/haeklet-haengekurv.html


-Vintage (or vintage inspired) ephemera paper

-Paint brushes (can never have too many)

-Yarn. I hate to sound like a brat, but I don't really use the stuff you find in big box craft stores (like michaels, joanns, etc) Madelinetosh, Malabrigo, and Noro are my current favorites. I also LOVE indie hand-dyed yarns.

-tshirt yarn for making rugs.

-Czech glass beads

-heart-shaped buttons

-fabric scraps

-Jars of whimsies

-glass tiles/frames for making pendants


-A kindle fire case.  Knitted or sewn.

-Handmade soap.  I haven't had good experiences with melt and pour soaps, but any other kind is good.  Any scent is ok (even masculine stuff because my dude will happily use it) as long as it isn't heavily floral.  I really love honey-scented soaps.  Any pumpkin spice everything.

-Scrubs.  Salt, sugar, lip scrubs, whateva.

-Lip balms, body butters.

-Homemade jams, sauces.  We are vegetarian, so no gelatin please.  But we love pretty much anything.  Fall spices (like pumpkiny, cinnamon type stuff) are a big plus.

Thank you in advance for picking me!
