Happy birthday to all!  I'm Amanda and I turned 30 on July 1.  I live in the SF bay area; I'm in Santa Cruz for the summer and then I'm moving up to Oakland in the fall to attend CCA; I'm studying photography.  I knit and crochet, and have the ability to sew but am mostly too lazy to do it.  As far as general color preferences go, I tend to like weird greens, mossy or chartreuse-y or olive or lime (etc..), most shades of orange shy of neon, light blue/brown combos, black/white combos, Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler or Denise Schmidt prints.  Navy and white is good for nautical themes-- I have an anchor tattoo, and some stars, so I like that sort of thing as well.  I have a long-haired chihuahua, black and tan with a white chest, so you could try to work him in somewhere if you're feeling doggy.  Now, the list!  

A pendant, maybe one of the slide ones you kids are making these days, or resin.  I like these from the last wish swap:  , or the flying bird ones here: adornjewelry.etsy.com/.  Any kinda botanical lookin' thing would be nice.  I like the images on this person's rings, too: tigerlillyshop.etsy.com/

A tote bag, in some nice funky fabric, perhaps vaguely like one of these:

Big enough for a couple notebooks, straps long enough to go over a shoulde
r.Thanks silverwing!!!

An embroidered pillowcase.  Any style of embroidery, any kind of pattern will make me happy.  My great-aunt made me some with really dorky flowers on them years ago, and I've loved them ever since.

A pillowcase, in some kind of loud print or patchwork, or screen print, for a 25"x25" pillow.  

Size 6 glass beads, not pearl colored, but any other color or a harmonious mix.  At least 150 beads (it's for an Odessa hat http://www.magknits.com/feb06/patterns/odessa.htm)

An apron, plain ol' over-the-neck style, either in some cool fabric or plain canvas with a screen(or any other kind of) print or some kind or embroidery-- I cook all the time, so nothing too delicate; this will be used daily and messily.

A t-shirt, screen (or otherwise)printed or embroidered, no words, but pretty much any kind of image.  Animals, plants, appliances, whatever.  I like a slightly fitted t or some girlier style above the standard t-shirt shape.  I'm usually a small, but a medium in American Apparel products (made for skinny little hipsters).

A Surprise!

I'm also claiming CraftinMyAssOff; I'm making her the Happy Hat from her wist.  This is my first swap-- birthday goodness for all!

Couple of things:

We still have NINE whole days to pick a July Birthday!!!  Everyone has been selected at least once except for any new people who just joined  Wink and I know of at least one other person who wants to join as soon as her swap is completed (she is a newbie!)---

GREAT JOB CRAFTSTERS!!  I am always amazed at the generosity and talent that you guys give to each other!!!!!  Let's keep the fun going by commenting and viewing the gifts in the gallery--my favorite part!!!!

Next, I will be out of town from August 4 to August 11.  I will be on the net but probably not everyday (or else hubby will kill me!!)

Finally, it is not too early to seek out an organizer for the August Swap!!  This is a great swap for a first time organizer because there is not as much to keep up with like some of the other swaps!!  PM me if you are interested!!!

If you receive a gift, please be sure to send out a thank you card.

Also, don't forget to notify me when you receive your thank you card.

If you need your feedback quickly to join another swap, let me know as well.  I will try to keep up if you are finished but a little nudge wouldn't hurt either, ha ha!!
