Sign-up date range: This swap lasts from 03/01/07-03/31/07
Date to send item by: Must send out item within 4 weeks of picking a partner-- the longer crafting time is so you can make bigger items

A)   you have your parents permission (you’ll be using their address OR a P.O. Box)

- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed at least one swap successfully before signing up for more: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that
every participant meets these conditions: YES
All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!


DETAILS:
This is a wishlist swap;  post a list and you may receive it!   Your list will need to consist of where you are from (it's okay to just put your state and/or country), crafted items that you would like (it helps greatly to include links to photographs, tutorials, etc.) and/or crafting supplies.

First: You will look through the lists of the people
who have already posted.  You will THEN pick someone from
there to craft for.

Second: As soon as you have messaged me, the organizer,
telling me who you would like to craft for and your answers to the
questionnaire,
I will tell you that you can post a list.



BASICS:
- to be able to post a list you have to craft for at least ONE person
- there must be AT LEAST 5 items on your list
- you can be picked as many times as you have items on your list
- if you have been picked 3 times, you have to pick one other person to craft for, then you can picked more...
- this swap starts fresh each month, so if you weren't picked from a previous round, you can post your list up in this round (after you've PMed me and been given approval)
-please include where you are in your wishlist, so people know if they are sending out of country before they choose you.
- please use DC#s or get a copy of the customs number when sending your packages... this helps greatly if they're lost in the mail!
- regular communication is required, so PM me when you send and when you receive
- you can craft for more than one person if you want, just PM me who you'd like to craft for and I'll send you their address!


When one of your items is picked, you must cross it out on your list and thank the person sending the item to you.



Example:
Person B wants to have their list posted so they PM the organizer with their questionnaire answers, and what they want to craft from Person A’s list.  The organizer will then PM person B, give them person A’s address, then they can then post their list.

Person C wants to have a list up, so they choose from A OR B, PM the organizer their answers, the name of the person they want to craft for, and what they’re going to craft.   Then they wait until the organizer approves them and sends them the address of whom they have picked.  Then they can post their list.

Say person A has been chosen 3 times. For them to be picked more, they have to pick one more person to craft for. 
The organizer (me) will let you know when you need to pick someone else if you want to receive more items.

Woohoo, I get to be first!

Hi all! I'm Joanna, a 27 yr. old recently married, temporarily unemployed high school teacher/craftster/world traveler/scholar/rockstar. Okay, I made up the last one. I am obsessed with chocolate, live music, books, Top Chef, paper, shoes, travel, and shiny objects. I have a travel blog with a swap info page if you want to know anything more (Link in my sig!).
p.s. I'm in Michigan!

My list:

Right now I really need things to make my travel easier and more comfortable!
Like:
- One of those squishy U shaped neck pillows, but with a washable cover
- I'd love a passport/ticket holder like one of these! http://www.hollandcox.com/passportcase.html Durable and with lots of pockets, perfect for all my traveling, maybe in a fun print! Please make sure there is a pocket large enough to hold the passport:)
- A cosmetics/toiletries bag, with a vinyle or oil cloth lining so I can wipe up spills (there is one on my wists by lamamarco that I LOVE!)
- One of those CD cases that clip to the visor of your car. I'll be driving from Mi to RI, so easily accessible CD's are a must! (Feel free to toss in some of your favorite driving music!) Thanks sanditerese!

Craft stuff:
- Needle felting kit
- ink pads in various colors (blue, purple, green, brown, red)
- Cool rubber stamps. I won't use anything too cutesy or country. I love these images: http://www.teeshamoore.com/zetti_catalog_order.htm
or phrases for cards (Like Thank you, Happy Birthday, etc.)If you send me unmounted rubber, that's cool, too!
- Brayers in any size as long as it is under 5 inches wide
- Water based printer's ink in any color
- Lace scraps! No shorter than 5 inches, but strips, trims, anything is great! I'll be using them for stencil and stamping, so both large and small weaves are ok. I only need a little, so you don't need to destash all over me!
- Acrylic blocks for stamping, and Cling sheets http://www.quietfiredesign.com/acrylicmounts.html

Knit/crochet:
- I love the "Dynomite" knucks! http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTknucks.html
- Knee socks, pedicure socks, flip flop socks, any kind of socks! I like thick wooly ones, I love solid neutrals or jewel tones, stripes, or argyle. I'm a US size 9-9 1/2, but you don't need to make them yourself!

For the hubby:
- A set of coasters with comics on them (he loves Batman and Spiderman best!) These are awesome! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=80761.msg780680#msg780680

Other:
- I love all things PaPaYa, one of their journals or cards would be awesome, but a handmade journal inspired by them would be awesome also!
http://shop.hannahgrey.com/index.php?cPath=290
- I adore screenprinted, stenciled, and embellished tees/tanks/hoodies. Women's small for tees and tanks, medium for a hoodie. I'd love one inspired by the regina Spektor lyrics "I have dreams of orca whales and elves."  PM me!
- A Cheapass bitch coupon holder
-Cool 4X6 recipe cards - and please include some of your favorite recipes! Especially if they are family/cultural traditions! Thanks AsphaltQueen and sanditerese!

- A jumper like this! http://www.flickr.com/photos/jessicarolland/411721501/
And of course, anything from my lengthy wists!
Thanks in advance to anyone who chooses me!

I'm in Missouri, USA with my husband and the ugly kids  Wink  I have an Australian cattle dog, Shetland sheepdog, flame point Siamese, and a black/white kitty.  I think bright colors, earth and jewel tones are beautiful, and I also like black/white combinations.  I'm not too fond of overwhelmingly pink things, but a touch here and there is fine.

- beaded (or not) art doll - I've only made one, but I do not have any of my own  <-- Thanks Elphalba!
- sturdy tote to use as a cloth grocery bag (you never can have too many of these)
- handmade rubber stamps
- hand dyed or handspun yarn
- roving
- microscope slide pendant or necklace
- anything mythical or fantasy themed
- anything with superheros (or villains!) - no favoritism here, they're all good
DIY Kits
- making your own rubber stamps
--->
- surprises are always good!
- anything wist inspired

Hello. I am 23 and live in Montana. I never know what to say about me, so here are my wishes. A lot of this stuff I have examples of on my wists. Thanks in advance if you pick me!

CRAFTED GOODS
* Oilcloth lunchbag.
* Felted beads. Any size or color.
* Bike bag that will hold my keys, lunch and water.
* Shopping bags for farmers market. A flat bottomed one would be nice for boxes of berries and that kind of stuff.
* Bracelets. Not bangle, but other fun funky things I can wear around, and possibly to work.
* Goldfish magnets like the ones I wisted.
* Strechy headbands.
* Fun knee-length skirt for summer. Not jean, please.
* Mixed paper journal.

STUFF FOR MY WEDDING
* Guestbook cards. Instead of doing a regular guestbook, we are putting out cards for each person to write on. They'd be the size of unlined index cards, and we'd need about 120. If you pick this, let me know so I can get a little more specific on what we are hoping for.
* Lucky stars in blue, white and green. There are tutorials for them on craftster.
* Blue and green beads and/or wire. I will be recreating one of these headpieces in comb form and I am lacking supplies.
http://www.io-mareas.com/anemona.htm
http://www.io-mareas.com/musgo.htm
Thank you!!!

SUPPLIES
* Drawing tools. Not full sets, but just a few random cool colored pencils, brush markers or caligraphy pens for doodling.
* Papers and 3d stuff for altered books.
* Buttons, trims and interesting fabric scraps.
* Charms in any material.
* Jewelry findings, silver prefered.
* Interference acrylics.
* Metal snaps.

Hi! I'm Amanda, 31 years old and I live with my hubby in Michigan. I have one furbaby (a female beagle named Snort) who's very lazy (unless there's food or a human hand willing to pet nearby). I love reading, playing board/card games and traveling to new places. I LOVE donuts (almost more than my husband) and candy (chocolate is fine, but candy is dandy). I like most colors, (pink/brown and blue/brown are great combos) but not goth. I'm fine with re-gifted/thrift store items as long as they're in decent condition and don't smell like smoke (or anything worse)! There's more swap info about me on my ATC blog...

My list:
- handspun or handdyed yarn
- any amigurumi or stuffy
- crocheted donut http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=143041.msg1406331#msg1406331
- felt donuts (I'd like to have a collection of these!)
- large barrette to hold my hair in a ponytail at my neck. Nothing flashy, would like a neutral color like brown or black (something made with wood would be perfect)
- crocheted mary janes http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127333.0 - getting these in a personal swap
- a pair of fingerless gloves (black, grey, cream or some funky combination of colors would be great - PM me regarding other colors) Thanks in advance to yamwam!
- pair of handknitted socks (US Size 9)
- anything related to donuts
- anything related to cookie monster (I've wisted a crocheted Cookie Monster)
- handmade paper (anything is great, something with "stuff" - like leaves, flowers - in out would be terrific)
- bird's nest necklace - preferably with pink eggs
- half-apron for crafting so I can keep glue and paint off my pants - thanks in advance farfromthegarden!
- watercolor pencils - used is fine, just curious to see what these are all about
- anything off of or inspired by my wists
*new additions*
- anything related to snuffleufagus, especially a stuffie
- any type of candy (chocolate is fine, but candy is dandy), especially something I probably can't get easily here in the U.S.
- custom washcloth-size pattern for a knit afghan I'm working on (it's a construction theme, I already found a construction worker pattern online and would love a dump truck, stop sign, backhoe, dozer, anything like that!) I don't need anything knit out, I just don't have the knowledge/time to figure out how to make my own patterns - PM me for more details

Thanks in advance for anyone who chooses me!

Hi everyone, I'm Beth and I live in Richmond, VA.  I'm 27 years old.  I've got two kids, and I work FT and in any spare time I have, I craft obsessively.  If you pick me, you should know that I prefer natural fibers and deep, rich colors.  Not gothy stuff, but not pink either, and things that are highly scented give me horrible headaches.

I can't knit, so I'd really like knitted things.  Like...

The Danica scarf (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTdanica.html)
The Clapotis (http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTclapotis.html)
Some Knucks (although I don't know what I want them to say)
A pair of socks, like boot socks to wear in the house (I wear an 11)

I do know how to sew, but I'd rather crochet, so I could use....

A big tote bag for all my yarn and needles and WIPs.Thanks Avesthel!!
I'd also love some pot holders and an apron because mine are just plain ugly (if you've got sushi fabric, I love you).
I'd also totally love some kind of awesome purse.  I've been carrying the same one for a while

As far as supplies go......

I could ALWAYS use more crochet hooks if you've got doubles or triples Thanks Raynbow!!
And/or some stitch markers.  It just seems like I never have enough of those.
I'd die if someone sent me some handspun.  I've never been able to get the hang of spinning, but I'd love to use some for a project.
I'd also really love to start pouring resin. Do you want to make me a "get started pouring resin" kit?

Some girlie stuff......

A sleeping mask, something posh, maybe embroidered with some pin-ups.
In fact anything involving pin-ups, pin-up magnets, stationary, stenciled on a tote or purse.
Some great skin scrub, I've heard awesome things about sugar scrubs.
Jewelry inspired by crafting......can you bend a crochet hook into a bracelet? 
I saw someone had made a cuff from a record (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155633.0), if you do this, PM for my wrist size.  If you can do this from a pink or blue record, I'd love you forever and ever and ever
