IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO THE ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!

Try to imagine a chain.  The first link is the first person whose wish list is on page 1 (Person A) - that will be the craftster member who was the very last wish list from ongoing wish swap 22.

Now, we want to put another link in the chain.  People will read that list and see if there is something they want to/can make from the list.

Someone (Person B) will claim Person A for some item on their wish list.  They post a reply to the thread that says I claim Person A for [item].  This is my X claim (however many times they have picked someone for example, "this is my fourth wish, with one sent, and three received, (meaning that this is the fourth claim they've made, one is in transit to it's destination, and three of the items have been received by the people they previously claimed).  Also add your location, and any preferences or aversions I live in Wisconsin USA, I am a vegetarian, and I am allergic to wool.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!  This means you need to post who you are claiming and for what, how many claims you have made, including how many in transit and how many received, and your location/preferences/aversions.

Then comes the fun part!  After the introduction, Person B is the last link in the chain, and they post their wish list!!!  YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF SIX.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.

(Please have your list ready, this swap moves very quickly!  Please include your country at the start of your wish list). Person B will also PM Person A to get her address so they can mail the item when it is finished.   

Along comes Person C, who claims Person B for something on their list and the chain is built, link by link.  (If Person C wanted to make Person B a purse AND a stuffie, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  Then they post their list, and so on.

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.

After you have made your claim, you need to PM that person for their address.

Friends of Craftster are allowed 3 wishes at one time, others are allowed 2 wishes.  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish until your craft is received.  Do not choose over your given limit.
Become a Friend of Craftster!  Go here: http://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php

If you are at your limit of wishes, you can choose again once one of your partners receives, NOT when you send.
***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***

Let's keep the quality high here. I don't want to receive PMs with people concerned over the lack of quality of their items.  Please, just work your hardest to keep the bar high on the quality of items here!  Don't choose just for the sake of choosing; choose to make someone else a really AWESOME wish!

Now if the thread gets in a rut for a few days/hours, the person who made the last wish should add to their list if they can think of anything else, until someone decides to craft for them.
Unsure of where to find wish ideas?  Try the previous ongoing wish swap galleries or any other gallery on craftster.  Look through your fellow crafters wist lists.

Sending/Communicating/Feedback:
YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR.

Please be communicative if you are having any issues. If you communicate you still need to send your item in a timely manner.  Communication does not mean you can send as late as you want.  After one week past the deadline you will have negative feedback.  This is only temporary as it will be changed back once you fulfill your obligation for late item(s).  Do not choose to craft an item if you do not think you can meet these deadlines.

THERE WILL BE FEEDBACK FOR THIS SWAP
I will be giving feedback in the following way:
-  great swapper: for those who follow all the rules
-  good/poor communication:  where applicable
-  sent late/early: where applicable
-  no dc number: failed to comply with the rule about using a delivery confirmation number for packages within your own country
- didn't post pictures: failed to post pictures of what they received without an adequate explanation to their partner

Putting Gatsbygirl's list here ready to be claimed until we just move the puzzle pieces around. I am such a dork. Ugghh!

Gatsbygirls LIST!!!!!

I claim Mlsocci74 for bamboo tiles and possibly some fabric. This is my first claim, with zero sent and zero received.

Hi there. I'm a thirtysomething writer/editor who lives in Los Angeles with my husband and two cats, but my heart truly resides in Texas. My favorite holidays are Valentine's Day, Day of the Dead and the two weeks before Christmas when everyone has the holiday spirit. I drive a cake batter yellow VW bug, but my second vehicle is a pink scooter. My interests include TV, food and chick lit (not always in that order). My favorite era is that gray one between Mod and Glam (think Andy Warhol/The Factory/Velvet Undergound), followed by the 1920s. If I have one regret it's that I don't have the bone structure to wear my hair super short like Mia Farrow's in "Rosemary's Baby." I'm currently into chocolate brown and those colors that go with it -- turquoise, pink -- but I also have a weakness for poppy Gerber daisy colors like pink and orange with a bit of burgundy thrown in. I try to stop eating three hours before bed. I don't always succeed. I prefer silver to gold, gloss to matte, cashmere to silk, heels to flats, red wine to white (champagne to both), pears to apples.

Things my little heart desires (Please excuse how long my list is. I like to have a little something of everything so I won't hold up the proceedings):

Definitely check out my wists, it's going strong: http://www.wists.com/GatsbyGirl

I really want to learn crochet. Anyone want to put together a "how-to" kit to help me out?

Nancy Drew book clutch purse

Long-sleeved, 3/4-sleeves t-shirt or cami tank with applique and/or embroidery (size Medium)

Funky, crafty wrap skirt (I'm a 6, but I guess with a wrap skirt it doesn't matter)

Fused glass: pendant, plate, bowl, tray, whatever (I love me some fused glass)

A small mosaic bowl

You know those crochet hooks with polymer clay covered handles? Yeah, I'd like some hair sticks like that.

Vintage (40s to the 70s, with an emphasis on the 50s and 60s) Craft kits. For some reason, I love those self-contained, "Here's the instructions. Here's the supplies. Go crazy." deals, especially older ones. Extra especially if sequins are involved.

Handmade soap (bars please; it's for the shower), scrubs, bath bombs. All scents are good, except for lavender or eucalyptus. I'm fond of gardenia, rose and vanilla.

Geegaws and Supplies:
   Neckties, Neckties, Neckties
   Wire cookie cutters
   Paper Dolls
   Girl/Romance/Fashion Comics
   Fabric -- big pieces, small pieces, fat quarters, fat eighths, scraps -- Mod prints, anything in pinks and browns (seperately, or together), flocked (or just looks like flocked wallpaper), patterned oil cloth, fun toile (as opposed to little old lady toile), sock monkey, Michael Miller, Alexander Henry ... oh, who am I kidding? ... anything you don't want/need.
   Colored Aida for cross-stitch -- 14 count
   Wooden embroidery hoops -- any and all sizes
   Contact paper/shelf liner with cool patterns
   Funky wallpaper scraps
   Rayon embroidery floss
   Super cool buttons

I'm in YAY  Grin
I claim Gatsbygirl for : Fabric -- big pieces, small pieces, fat quarters, fat eighths, scraps -- Mod prints, anything in pinks and browns (seperately, or together), flocked (or just looks like flocked wallpaper), patterned oil cloth, fun toile (as opposed to little old lady toile), sock monkey, Michael Miller, Alexander Henry ... oh, who am I kidding? ... anything you don't want/need.



My wishlist for round 23

 Hi, I'm Karan in the UK and I get 3 wishes. 1st claim/0 sent/0 rec'd.

First Id like to say THANK YOU to anyone who makes my wishes come true!!

Clothing and footwear
SLEEVES... yup, you heard me. You've all seen sleeveless tops, well I want topless sleeves! Quite big and flowing medieval type sleeves or even just a slightly flared bell sleeve, I'm imagining them on a sort of elastic (like a waistband) only to fit my upper arm, its like armwarmers to the MAX *lol* If you're feeling a bit adventurous PM me for measurements etc

A long panelled skirt in different fabrics/colours co-ordinating not clashing (PM for faves) with a side zip fastener not an elastic waist http://patternsthatfityou.com/frskirtcl.htm recycled/pre-loved fabrics are not a problem so long as they are fresh and undamaged.

or one like this with a ruffled hem http://www.wists.com/kookaloo/552fb2dd861e98c89b35a0becdc99d11?offset=60 again I'd prefer a  side zip fastening

Trousers like these (style not colour/pattern) http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=161380.0

Vintage BOUDOIR BOOTS!
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=28162.0

A summer hat like this:  in a neutral colour please http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=99&d_id=23&lang=en

These slippers: PM for sizing bright colours acceptable  Wink http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=86&d_id=15&lang=us

LONG SHOT: (but what the heck, you don't get if you don't ask lol shoes like these http://www.wists.com/kookaloo/3fc05e5084656538cfb4a37426cc04ab?offset=0
a shrug like this one http://www.wists.com/kookaloo/b0afee5785858cd3f9fe786dffd82495?offset=0
 
For my home/garden:
A windchime for my garden

A quilted wallhanging tree/leaf themed in greens/browns or autumal shades

Knitted lilies!! My all time fave flower, Id really love some of these: http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTlilies.html  white ones please.

A personalised, painted wine glass for my Beloved

A personalised painted mug for my boy
 
Crafting and creating:
Do you make beads? Clay/felted/paper/whatever.Id love some.

Rubber stamps and maybe some ink pads, Id like a recycle logo and a tree (amongst others!)
 
Wool roving (for felted dreads and attempting to spin!)

Hand spun yarn

CROCHET HOOKS with wooden or plastic handles (I can't hold metal "sticks/hooks" for long....baaaad hands   ) Just taught myself to crochet so need bits and bobs to help and encourage me. I only have a 4mm hook so far! Some BIG hooks (speed sticks? Speed hooks??) would be awesome, our local shop goes up to 6mm at the biggest

 50s/60s/70s craft books or magazines or odd patterns

Labels like this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=40044.0 with Kookaloo Starr on them

Jewellery:
 bracelets, brooches, necklaces or anklets. PM for sizes as Im a big gal (no gold toned findings please) Sapphire and Amethyst coloured stones will match well with pieces I already have. Jade and turquoise would be good too   Natural stone colours are also good; I'm an Earth sign. I have some wonderful, unique jewellery since joining Craftster!

Things inspired by my wists (not exact copies) check with me 1st as I have received somewisties already
Im always happy to accept fabric so long as its at least a FQ (no scraps) and yarn leftovers, preferably full skeins but part used is OK too.
Or just surprise me, Im easily stalkable!

ABOUT ME:
Im Karan, hurtling out of control towards my 40th birthday whilst still clinging onto my misspent youth! Im married with 2 teenage sons and a pet cat.
My style is best described as eclectic Im a rock chick with hippy/Goth leanings and a penchant for little house on the prairie dresses!
My star sign is Virgo
My favourite colour is purple I also like hot pink, black, silver, navy and charcoal grey, turquoise too. Earth tones in general are cool. Colours Im not fond of are pastels; orange, yellow although a bit in with other colours isnt so bad.
I dont like geometric designs; Im more of a soft and flowing, curvy type.
Im very tactile and like soft and strokeable textures i.e. velvet, cord, suede
Motifs I like are stars, leaves, trees, hearts,  Virgo sign, sun, Ouroboros, flowers, Celtic

THANK YOU SO MUCH for choosing me

Hi, I'm Samsara, and I'm in the UK. This is my first wish this round.

My Wish list

Ethical & Allergies - Im a vegetarian, so no animal products please (wool's okay, but leather, fur, suede or gelatine aren't!) Im also allergic to nickel, biological washing powder and artificial perfumes.
 
I would love a LOTR inspired Elven head-dress like the ones Arwen or Galadriel wear! (Okay, I can hope, cant I?) Or any sort of Elven inspired jewellery? (Im allergic to Nickel though!)

My babies would love you forever if you made them a kitty pi!
http://theknittinggarden.com/gallery-march/mar-free-3.htm

A jewellery roll with a ring keeper (for several rings), places for necklaces, bracelets, etc. Grin

A fabric (or knitted maybe?) backgammon board for travelling

A pair of washable feeding mats for my cats (Could also be crocheted or knitted) approximately 12 x 9

Some layered fabric legwarmers like these - I particularly like the green ones with the flower motif (pm me for measurements    )

A car litter bag like this but in different material (skully material would be cool, or black patterned, or purple)
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=5454876

A string of prayer flags or bunting with cool material, or images stencilled on (see below for favourite motifs) There're some good examples here, but feel free to create your own. I'd like them to be able to go outside

A black wrap dress. (Just above the knee length as I'd wear it over trousers)

A long hippy skirt!

Some washable cloth pads with wings and a fastener there have been some really cute ones that people have made! (A travel purse with dirty/clean compartments would be excellent too, but not essential  Wink )

A Celtic wallhanging in purple for my living room wall.

A CD with vintage images on for crafting

Something for my garden? If it tinkles, twirls or makes a noise, that would be great! I live on top of a hill so there is always a breeze in my garden. It would need to stand up to the English weather though! Or some kind of artwork, or sculpture? I have a sort of enchanted garden theme going on mushrooms, fairies, wind chimes, wind-dancers and sun catchers that sort of thing  Cheesy
Thanks Alana  Grin

Some fairy wings for partying in *lol* (purple, black or rainbow?)

Teach me something new, I love to learn new stuff! I'd love a DIY Sock knitting kit, or a wire wrapping kit

An A4 deckle and frame for paper-making.

Alternative craft books - there are some fab ones about at the moment!

Something for my yoga practice surprise me! A bag, a strap or something else? I love these!

Something for my belly-dancing I have a sort of gothic costume that Im working on at the moment (black and silver) how about helping me?  Cheesy

A decorative tissue box cover (pm me for box dimensions) I dont mind whether its sewn, knitted, crocheted, papier mache, whatever you like to do  Wink

Anything from/inspired by my wists http://www.wists.com/Samsara

About me

Im 38, Im an art and pottery teacher, and I live in the UK with my BF, 2 cats and a german shepherd dog. Im basically a hippy-gothy chick, my favourite colours are purple, black, turquoise and emerald green, although any strong colours are also cool especially rainbows (I dont like pastels and I cant wear yellows, or yellow based browns or oranges as they really dont suit me!) Also I'm not keen on floral fabrics, unless they're oriental or hippy, or if theyre appliqud onto something else Im really into appliqu at the moment! I love batiks, Indian fabrics and tie dyes. I enjoy yoga, reading and crafting, particularly new crafts! Favourite themes are cats, dragons, peacocks, nature, trees, stars, Ohms, lotus, tribal style designs, anything Celtic, Art-Nouveau or Zetti, sci-fi and fantasy books and films.

Ive included my Wists, but dont feel obliged to produce exact copies, theyre more a general guideline of what I like or would like!
Heres some extra information about me if you want! http://samsarasswapinfo.blogspot.com/


Thanks in advance for choosing me!!
