I claim jenna rose for a mix of things from her wish list. This is my third wish.

I am 30 and I live in Sweden with my boyfriend and four teletubbies.  Grin Well, right now I live in a boarding room at the school where I just started a one year crafting course! (or textile arts or whatever you want to call it; we sew and crochet and weave and so on the whole day, and it's great!) We're moving to a flat soon. Oh, and there's a third family member on its way (or, well, seventh if you count the teletubbies  Cheesy).

Top wish right now

Lightscribe cds/dvds for me to lightscribe on. Would love different colours! Can't get them here.  Cry

I am especially looking for crafting supplies of different kinds, among others these (that I can't get or have had trouble finding here)...

Bobby pins with a plate to glue things to, something like this: https://www.rings-things.com/cgi-bin/hazel/hazel.cgi?action=detail&item=30-822-1

Silver or silver plated/gold plated wire, thinner than 0.4 mm (maybe someone can translate this into American standard?)

Joints for making dolls/teddybears, to fasten arms and legs to make them movable (preferably not too big)

Flat metal things with a loop (preferably silver/gold or silver/gold plated) to fasten on the back of for example a marble to make it into a pendant. Something like this: https://www.rings-things.com/cgi-bin/hazel/hazel.cgi?action=detail&item=49-455-3  Ideally either 10mm or 20mm square, but also interested in other sizes.

book with fun/cute Japanese sewing and/or crochet patterns

Yarn in different colours to make amigurumis (acrylic or cotton is good or other yarn that may be suitable)

Chunky fun yarn (something that looks a bit different in one way or another).

Strange colour (other than white or transparent) shrinky dinks (I think there is a black kind); I would really prefer the "shrinky dink" brand!

Crafting/Sewing themed metal charms (like scissors or something, to be used for making jewelry).

Gold plated chain to make necklaces and other jewelry.

Silver plated finger rings with a large plate (1.5-2 cm?) with sides (will try to find a link to make it less confusing) for crafting jewelry.

Kit for making animals and other creatures/decoration from beads, things like these: http://www.beadjewelrymaking.com/browse_all.html but maybe not too complex ones to start with, since Im a beginner.

A kit for some kind of craft I haven't tried yet. Feel free to PM me about that.

Glass thingies, especially ones with holes in them:
Other glass shapes on the same site are also as interesting, and coloured square marbles also... Just different shaped glass thingies to put pictures behind really... and/or coloured ones for rings:
(I already have enough of the "normal" round transparent ones (that you can buy in flower shops (at least here) though.)

Snap buttons of good quality, preferably bigger and/or ones that you "punch" on (rather than sew or fold those little metal clips thingies) (plastic and/or metal)

Magnetic snaps for making bags.

Handles for making bags

Crochet books or magazines with fun new projects (not to traditional stuff). I like "Crochet today". I only have the last issue (september-october 2007) so far. Please ask me before you send a crochet book, since I have a few (not many) already and might have the one you want to send.

Craft books/magazines in general with fun new projects (not too traditional stuff) (in English or German or with easy-to-follow pictures (well, Swedish is good as well  Cheesy)

And of course anything from my evergrowing wist.

Please no food/candy!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the OWS26, and the OWS25 before that.

I heard rumor that kittykill and grieney are going to be running the OWS27, so keep an eye out for them to start that up, hopefully, today.  Once I have an URL for that swap, I'll post it here.

Please remember the 2-week send out, and PM Lapoli and I when you send (don't forget those DC numbers) and when you receive (please post pictures and thank your sender)

Th-th-th-th-th-th-this swap's officially over!

Veni, Vidi, Velcro
I came, I saw, I stuck around

Taking a break from swaps to get some stuff under control.  Email if you need me.

Thank you both for organizing.  This was my first time doing an ongoing swap and I am hooked, but good.  I'm going to go wander forlornly around looking for round 27.  It won't be pretty, don't look, but it's still better than actually working. 

Need something crocheted?  I'll swap amis, afghans, shawls or whatever for a box of yarn.  Smiley
