I claim scarlet_nights for cat toys and some supplies

1/0/0

Hi, My name is Olivia.  I live in California, and have a slew of things I love including but not limited to: crochet, animals,
nature, the color black, knits, science, old books, art, painting, Victorian era stuff, anime, insects, curiosities, photography, hiking, the color green, wildflowers, bones, fungi, and moss. I'm married with two kids,
and I do have a few wishlist items for my sons listed.  My teen is 15, a band geek and computer nerd, who appreciates Nature and loves wolves.  My kindergartener is a wild child who loves dirt, rocks, sticks, legos (especially people), and is obsessed with the human skeleton.

allergies: wool, alpaca, any animal fiber; strong artificial fragrances and perfumes; pollen

The easy way... https://www.pinterest.com/laachapa/ows-board/

My List...
Sewing:
- a scrappy skirt in shades of black, grey, purple, maybe mauves; https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099929741075/
- a shoulder sling bag in black, grey, or olive green (like in link), zipper closure please. I would love a kodama, amanita, fern, or animal skull theme, but blank is ok too  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927701429/
- a bibbed apron Thanks scarlet_nights for my first one!

Jewelry:
- a wire wrapped crystal point necklace (clear quartz, citrine, smoky quartz, rose quartz, I already have an amethyst) https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927621795/
- a wire wrapped ring like this one https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099928405069/
- embroidered pendant (see the embroidery section of my wishlist)
- beaded moth brooch, something like these https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927976724/  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927976681/
- looong bead necklaces, like 24-32 inches (no plastic beads please) something similar to these https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099928929719/ (the picture, not the link) https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099928929705/
https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099928929751/ Thanks Anna.wahnsinn! I want more!
- those stretchy gemstone bracelets, I love jade, agate, moss agate, aventurine, any quartz.

Embroidery:
- embroidered botanical pendant: fern, fiddlehead, queen anne's lace, lavender, dandelion, poppy, https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927701296/ https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927621597/ https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927621361/ https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099924992600/

- embroidered insect pendant , bee, beetle, moth
- embroidered words or phrases. I have a list of words and short phrases that I would like. I prefer to frame my embroidered pieces.  Nothing against hoopla,
I work as a custom framer and love frames. Dorky, I know.
   - Familia (maybe with a floral border)
   - Home sweet Home (with a little cabin, maybe some pine trees? either-or)
   - slow down and smell the flowers (maybe with some floral accents?)
- embroidered Mandala hoop: I'd like one in high contrast solids - a dark color on a light color, or vice versa, you get the idea
I'd also like one in the 7 chakra colors https://www.pinterest.com/pin/333196072405703494/

Knit: (I'm allergic to wool, and prefer plant fibers, but soft acrylics are ok too)

- one of these hats (or something similar) in black, olive, eggplant, or burgundy https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927719679/  Thanks loudxmouse for the grey one!
- a grey or navy blue knit beanie for my 5 yr old son (no wool please)

Misc:
- lotion bars, bar soaps, or solid perfumes (I love sandalwood, patchouli, coconut, vanilla, lavendar, vetiver - please no jasmin, ylang, citrus, cinnamon, or clove scents. Sorry to be picky, I'm just very sensitive to these scents.)

- Octopus T-shirt for my husband, size L
- if you can Paint or Draw really well, I would love a pet portrait of my black kitty Gypsy (photos provided upon claim)

By theme:  Useful items would be great, but truth be told, I can't resist great decor although space is limited.
- I love kodama! Anything with kodama! (well almost, no earrings or hair accessories please)
- Insects & Spiders, I love anything with realistic insects or spiders (except the same things listed above)
- something human skeleton for my 5 yr old, ideas: a stuffie, a t-shirt, nesting doll set, a wooden puzzle, a block puzzle set
- something Lunar, I love the moon, especially the full moon! (patches, t-shirt, necklace, bracelet)

Supplies: (gently used, ok)

Wow! Love those! Especially the purple flower one!

These are the pendants bronzfrog made for me.  She also included an extra! A gorgeous magnet!  She must have done some great stalking because I ablsolutely love them!  Bronzfrog, is the skull one polymer?  Did you sculpt that!?  I'm super impressed if you did. The magnet is a section of one of my favorite works of art that I have pinned.   Grin



Thanks bronzfrog!  I hope you like your pendants half as much as I like mine!

I'm a little late to the conversation, but I'm raising my hand!  I totally remember that Star Trek episode, and almost all of the other ones too!

Averia, I feel that way about Star Wars.  Episode 4 came out five days after I was born.   Grin

Haha, that's too cute!  It does look like you though, although it looks like it may be a little too vintage.   Cheesy
