1  Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 123 (Febuary 2016) in Craft Swaps by La Chapa on: February 02, 2016 02:21:29 PM
I claim stellato_escuro for a crochet item, due 2/16/16


Hi! My name is Olivia.  I'm from California, USA. I love to crochet, draw, paint,and sculpt. I love Nature, plants, animals, books, and art.  I tend to like things a bit creepy, but not quite to the point of disturbing. I am married with two boys and a cat. I'm a bit picky about color, and I apologize in advance for that.  For home decor I prefer Earth tones and black. Think rustic, think forest. For clothing and accessories, I wear only dark colors (mostly black) and grey.  I dislike pastels, brights, and primary colors.  I love lace and delicate floral prints, as well as tiny polka dots. I don't really like cartoony or scenic prints. I am allergic to wool, but only for wearable items. I am very sensitive to artificial fragrances and cigarette smoke.
Thanks in advance for any claims!

The quick and easy way; anything off my OWS pinterest board : https://www.pinterest.com/laachapa/ows-board/

Sewing & Embroidery
- sleeveless Victorian nightgown- petite Lrg - simple prarie style one - mid length - (I've always wanted one of these, is that weird?)
- embroidered pet portrait of my cat Gypsy (she's black) made to fit anywhere from a 4x4 to an 8x10 frame (photo available upon claim)
- a skeleton stuffie for my son (like a rag or cupcake style doll, but not necessarily either)- something sturdy enough to play with. He's 5 so it doesn't need to be baby safe
  He's been asking for one for over a year! some examples: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927621071/ , https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099925303982/
- quilted place mats - set of 4 (is 4 still a med claim? Claim 2 at a time if you feel that is more size appropriate, and I can mix and match in pairs.) - simple is fine- if themed, I prefer nature themes (please no farm animals, fruits, or checkered prints)
- embroidered brooch or pendant - bones, skulls, insects, plants, bats, cats - check my pinterst for other themes that I like
   I have already received these from Averia
- musical pillow case (or 2) - cotton print with music notes or classical intsruments (french horn a plus!!) - it's for my teenage son so please nothing "girly" or cartoony
Jewelry and Beading
- gemstone jewelry (no earrings please) My favorites are labradorite, rainbow moonstone, moss agate, snowflake obsidian, onyx, golden rutile quartz, and amber.
- a beaded moth brooch similar to this https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927976724/ or this https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927976681/
- a themed charm bracelet: black cats, toads, fungi, Kodama, memento mori, monarchs, the night sky

Bath and Body
- essential oils natural lotion bars!  Favorite scents are lavender, lemongrass, frankincense, rosemary, and patchouli but others are fine too (no cinnamon or clove please as they are a little too strong)
- essential oils natural bar soaps (no cinnamon or clove please as they are a little too strong)
- lip balms!  I have a serious addiction, partly due to chronically dry lips!
- bath bombs! No artificial fragrances please

- Nearly any knit wearable (except headbands & earwarmers) made in my current color crush: dark forest green - fingerless mitss are a plus, but seriously anything, I love knits! - please be aware that I cannot wear wool or alpaca!

- I REALLY want these for my son https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927840489/
- screenprinted t-shirt with mushrooms, or pine trees (women's style T, size L)

Supplies (supply claims are fine)
- artist paint brushes - I use small detail brushes the most
- micron pens - black
- mixed media moleskin style sketchbook
- any bamboo or wooden crochet hook/s (I have a J)
- sz 8 black glass seed beads, especially matte black
- any genuine gemstone beads - labeled please
- stretch magic jewelry cord
- yarn bee hint of silk yarn in lacquer (black) - available at Hobby Lobby
- Essential oils, cypress, amber, juniper berry, vetiver, rosewood
- white prismacolor pencils
- Clover yarn cutter pendant (prefer the antique gold color)
- calligraphy pen - the kind you have to dip
- calligraphy ink - black - really I need the pen first
- a pom pom maker
- any bead crochet books - I would like to learn Smiley
- 16 or 18 ct aida cloth - black or white - scraps 6x6 or bigger are fine!
- jewelry making pliers or wire cutters

- lego people (my 5-yr old loves them) even just parts as he's always loosing them!
- neat seed pods, pinecones, or acorns from your area (I like silly things like this)
- a few sticks of your favorite incense (i'm a total junkie)
- children's chapter books (Have your kids outgrown theirs?  They will find a loving and caring home with mine!)

So much awesome! Love everything! That ghosty mug rug is just precious!

I received from phoenixfiredesigns, and I love everything (of course!)!

here's the whole shabang

The mini is so awesome and it's my second mini piece!  I may have to dust off a shelf and make a little mini scene!  The little skulls are going to decorate my brother's grave for day of the dead this year, so thank you so much!  And I love my socks and bookmark!  My son and I will be coloring the wooden ornaments as part of our Halloween craft day.  And oh-my-gawd I love my moon jewelry so much!  I'm not sure what bead is in the ring, but I love it!  And is that opalite in the pendant?  Anyway, everything is amazing, and I hope you like what I sent half as much!

and some close ups of the mini and the jewelry!

7  Squeakers the crochet bat in Halloween Decor and Parties by La Chapa on: September 17, 2015 02:35:22 PM
I made this little crochet bat for stitchzBstitchz in the Vintage Halloween Swap this year.  She named him squeakers, and I'm glad he's found a good forever home.  I'm thinking of writing up a pattern, because I can see myself wanting to make more of these little guys, but I may need to tweak the wings a little more.  Anyway, he was fun to make.  Thanks for looking!

I made this crochet pumpkin for stitchzBstitchz in the Vintage Halloween swap this year.  It's one of my favorite swaps of the year!  I really love prim style, and this piece is largely influenced by that. 

Thanks for looking!

pheonixfiredesigns, I am ridiculously excited about being partnered with you! (I love moons!) I've admired your work for quite a while! (Full!) Your feline friend is adorable,(Moon!) and I guess we will be swapping fur too! Here's what you'll be getting...

p.s. I have to admit it's been difficult to resist sending hints and subliminal messages about what I'd love to receive, but I just think that would be bad swap etiquette.   Grin Grin Grin

LOVE Frankie and the Bride, and that is the most awesome wallet ever!

I received from stitchzBstitchz today!  We had agreed to send some extras with out package and boy oh boy did she spoil me!  I got tons of my favorite Halloween candy, and a painted and collaged canvas of a gypsy cat (which she did as a play on the fact that I have a cat named Gypsy!), AND her first altered tin ever!  I love everything!

Thanks stitchzBstitchz!!!  Feel free to post better close up shots of the tin if you have them.   Grin
