I claim Igobylorib for an embellished cuff and a handsewn pin cushion.

This is claim 1 of 2. 0 sent 0 received 0 in transit

I'm from New York City, USA.

About me: I am 24, a veterinary technician. I like almost all colors except for pink. Purple and black are two of my favorite colors. I enjoy stenciling, embroidery, jewelry making and learning new crafts. I'm currently learning how to knit.  Some themes I like are skulls, stars, cats, robots and ninjas and dragons of course. I guess you could say I am a closet goth. I don't dress the part but I am attracted to many "gothy" things. I also like anime, video games and Karaoke making me a huge dork.

my list:

-Something from my wists.www.wists.com/dragonsmuse (beware: over a 1000 things wisted and counting)

Kits:

-A calligraphy learning kit (Asian or English calligraphy, i like them both)

-A learn to needle felt kit

-Stamp making kit

-Candle making kit

Supplies:

-Fabrics with skulls or cats(nothing too cutesy and definitely not country)

-Interesting beads and charms (especially if they fall under anything I mention above)

-small molds for resin jewelry making

-stitch markers for knitting and crocheting

-tools for working polymer clay (I'm looking to make jewelry. I've got a book and can get the clay)

-rubber stamps in any theme above and any featuring ravens, crows, owls, hearts, etc.

Crafted:

-Laptop sleeve, should be well padded.
 
-a panta with ears (kitty or bear, please)

-mamegoma or nekono panya related stuff (san-x)

-hoodies with animal ears, or scales or whatever else animals have.

-Stenciled/silk screened/embroidered hoodies or shirts with any theme mentioned above.(please only WOMANS FITTED XL, no "adult" or mens shirts)

-awesome jewelry (bracelets, chokers, earrings, beads, shrinky dinks, paper, felt. It's all good as long as it isn't pink)(look to wists to see what styles I like)

-Amigurumi Red Panda

-Purses in any theme above. (wristlets and hobo's are my favorite kind)

-Messenger Bag for my friend. She ruined her last one and is now using an atrocious black one with a giant glob of glue on the flap. I hate that bag. If any of you lovely people can make a bag with any of the following themes she and I will love you forever. She likes  Bender(futurama), Coach McGirk(home movies), Kitties, skulls(not girly or cutesy skulls though), Bats, Zombies, and creature from the black lagoon. Her wist is www.wists.com/scumbag if you want to get a better sense of her style.

Hi, Iím Samsara, Iím in the UK and I get three wishes.
2 claimed; 4 sent, 4 received

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

A crystal/gemstone necklace! I love amethyst, rose quartz, turquoise, tigers eye, fluorite, garnetÖum, I pretty much love all crystal!

Fiber
My babies would love you forever if you made them a kitty pi!
http://theknittinggarden.com/gallery-march/mar-free-3.htm
If you knit it, I can felt it! I'm finding it hard to find feltable yarn!

A newsboy hat like this, in purple or black or green  Grin
http://www.wists.com/Samsara/4e9db88e8c45f83307253a2a44b5a43c?offset=20

A magic yarn ball with a fun project to do  Grin (Any yarn except acrylic Ė I have loads of that in my stash!)

A pair of flared knitted legwarmers in variegated yarn Ė purples maybe? (pm me for measurements)

Iíd love a Weasley sweater in purple with the initial G (for Ginny) on it  Cheesy

Sewn
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
Thank you Frosty!

A jewellery roll with a ring keeper and plenty of pockets please!  Wink

A string of prayer flags or bunting with cool material, or images stencilled on (see below for favourite motifs) There're some good examples in my wists, but feel free to create your own. 

A kimono hoodie

A black wrap dress.

Long bloomers

A long hippy skirt!

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

Some washable cloth pads with wings and a fastener Ė 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  Grin )

Household
Something for my garden? If it tinkles, twirls or makes a noise, that would be great! It would need to stand up to the English weather though! I have a sort of enchanted garden theme going on Ė mushrooms, fairies, wind chimes, wind-dancers and sun catchers Ė that sort of thing  Wink

Iíd love a piece of Celtic artwork in purple for my living room wall. I donít mind whether itís a wall hanging or a picture!
Thankyou preendpeterpan!  Grin

I'd love a Wizards Chess set a la Harry Potter (I have a board). I know it won't move like the real thing, but maybe in polymer clay, or something similar. Or maybe inspired by LOTR?

A cutlery wind chime

Fimo decorated cutlery (Two pairs would be great, one for me, one for the BF)

Supplies and kits
KIY Sock knitting kit, or a wire wrapping kit

Flexible moulds for polymer clay/resin, or some of that flexible polymer clay for making your own moulds, or mini cutters.  Grin

Stuff ready to spin! Iíve just learnt how to use a drop spindle and Iím addicted  Grin Thanks Velvet Rose

Beads (no plastic please) especially gemstone beads, amethyst, turquoise, rose quartz, anything like that!

New pinking shears. Mine belonged to my Mum and are older than me. Unfortunately theyíre getting a little blunt now.

Alternative craft books - there are some fab ones about at the moment! Any craft book in fact, I don't mind vintage or pre-loved!

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

Anything from/inspired by my wists http://www.wists.com/Samsara
Thanks to Laural and Banga for Wisty surprises!


About me
Iím 38, Iím an art teacher, and I live in the UK with my BF, 2 cats and a german shepherd dog. Iím 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 donít like pastels and I canít wear yellows, or yellow based browns or oranges as they really donít suit me!) I love batiks, appliquťs, Indian fabrics and tie dyes. I love tactile things, and things that are practical rather than decorative. Favourite themes are cats, dragons, peacocks, nature, trees, stars, Ohms, lotusí, tribal style designs, anything Celtic, Art-Nouveau or Zetti, sci-fi and fantasy books and films.

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


Thanks in advance for choosing me!!

I updated all the feedback for everyone who didn't claim in this round and for those of you whose packages were all received.

 Please let me know if I missed you...and please keep sending me pm's when you receive!

 Anyone have any picture they can post in the gallery?
I love to see what everyone gets (and it's nice for senders to get some feedback on their craftiness!)

I finally got decent pictures of my paintings by reenreen - well, the fairy one is a decent picture, the dragonfly is still problematic.....

so i'm hoping reen might have better ones?

LOL, can i send gentle nudges to the ladies who received from me, and never posted pictures? (not that i'm naming names................... yet!)
