I claim Therisa for something from her wist.

This is my second claim this round, one sent, one received.

A little bit about me: I am a 27 year old woman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, student, and special educator.  Family plays a large part in my life as does the outdoors. I live in Maine and we hike, bike, canoe/kayak, geocache, camp, walk, and do just about anything except for organized sports if it takes place outdoors.  I also like to read, play with my kids, host family dinners/events, and (of course) craft.  My favorite crafts are sewing (clothing for my children, quilts, bags/purses), scrapbooking (although I have taken a brief break from it for right now), crocheting, and embroidering.  I would like to learn (have patterns) for how to make felt food and also learn how to make the polymer pendants.

Crafts:

A bracelet like this: http://craftgossip.com/blog/id-me-metal-clay-bracelet-tutorial/2008/08/14/ with the itials ABI or PBI or SSBI

A Molly Monkey like this: http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/2008/07/drum-roll-pleasemolly-monkey-pattern.html

Colorful Sock Monkey

Headbands and/or embellished barrettes for the 10 year old

Embellished hair ties and/or barrettes for my 4 year old

Pinafores in sizes 5/5t/6 in fun prints preferably blue/brown/pink colors but the middle child is fairly easy going (example on wist).

Felt food veggies or sets (breakfast foods would be great)

A clutch like this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10184729 or this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9913770

Crocheted cupcakes and/or pies for the little ones to play with.

A tote like this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=12471317

A stamp (not much bigger then two inches by three inches) that says "hide from the kids" (without the quotation marks).

Anything from/inspired by my wist: http://www.wists.com/girlosun_9 and there are a lot of ideas here, please feel free to craft something you would like to craft!

Pendant or pendants such as http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10371924, or this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13217285, this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13888420, or this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=11823943  I especially love the robot but I love them all

I claim mimiw for a pincushion!

this is my third claim, 0 sent 0 received

I'm a 24-year-old girl in Colorado. I graduated with my degree in high school English Education, and somehow fell into teaching kindergarten. I like it, but it's not my future. I got married five months ago, and that's a bunch of fun. I have three cats. I love the colors black, white and red. I love circles and spheres. I love odd sea life like squid and puffer fish. I love cryptozoology, especially lake monsters. I love red lipstick. I love dinosaurs, especially the aquatic kind. I love film noir and cult films like RHPS and Phantom of the paradise. I love transvestites. I love Beck.

I don't love blue, purple, orange, patriotic fabric, colored glue or puff paint.


My wishes:

1.My kindergarten room needs spiffing up. I can't afford to spend much of my own money ( I work at a private kindergarten in a daycare, so am not making the normal teacher wages) and the school gives me no budget for new toys. I'm especially craving homemade games that will help the kids learn how to sort, classify, and count for the science center. Alphabet and phonics games would also be awesome. My kids are very varied in their reading levels, from ready-to-read to can't-tell-a-number-from-a-letter. Examples http://www.kindergarten-lessons.com/kindergarten-science-center.html http://www.kellyskindergarten.com/science/science_center_activities.htm
Along those lines, tubes of rubber insects and reptiles, animals etc. would be great, and any sort of collection you can make of nature items from your area that won't decompose too quickly--bug-catching equipment, seeds and pots to grow plants,anything at all that they can stare at and be fascinated by (and you wouldn't believe how easily they are fascinated, unless I worked really hard on it, of course.) A snake skin would be ace.

2.I love homemade soap and bath bombs. Any kind of bath thing at all, but not the kind made from a kit or melt-and-pour. My skin can deal with real ingredients, but doesn't like artificial chemicals much. Lavender, basil, sage, rosemary, peppermint, pineall lovely.

3.Laminated or contact-paper-covered children's poems with a picture on them for my Poem Tree.4 by 6 index cards would be a good size, and the funnier the better.

4.A Totoro doll. A Big one, like at least 20 tall, for me to squeeze. Preferably the white one.

5.A Giant Squid  or Yeti doll. See number 4.

6.A Cat window seat for fat cats. I have many: they are corpulent.

7.Badly translated japanese kawaii items such as: http://www.shopkawaii.com/Q-Lia-Orange-Squirrel-B5-Notebook-p/q-11045.htm

8.This bird swing thing: http://wists.com/myloveasdeep/0e4d7dc53f13d8ce91d8f833b166fcd5?offset=40 (in black, white and red would be even better)

9.Pretty much anything with a black and white damask pattern.

10.Wall decals. A chandelier one would kick arse. Black, of course.

11.A t-shirt that says Screw World Peace, I Want a Pony and has a pony on it. Girly shirt size large.

12.Can anyone make stamps? Eraser, rubber or similar? I have designs, very simple, I'd love to have stamps of, but I'll never get to learning how. Here is an early drawing I did with the little guy in it that I'd like a stamp of (I have better images if you pick this): http://giraffemilkshake.files.wordpress.com/2008/05/monster.jpg

13.I collect old deer figurines if you happen to have any. The bigger the eyes, the better I like them. An embroidery or paper cut of a kitschy deer would be nice too. This is cute: http://wists.com/myloveasdeep/2c67bce6150c158fe61d13d2762cb988?offset=160

14.Stamp ink pads!

15.A big old white one of these paper stars: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=83862.0

16.A glorious garter belt like this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=128027.0

17.A really simple corset that ends under the bust. Just like a rectangle that laces up, no major boning involved. Pm me for sizes.

18.A super-kitschy pink poodle tissue or tp cozy.

19.This dress: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=254265.0

20. t-shirts with any of these stencils: Katharine Hepburn, Beck, a squid, a yeti, a furry monster or dinosaur saying "rawr".

21. A leather or vinyl notebook cover for my husband.

22. Old pen and ink type drawings of sea monsters or any other animal, really. Example: http://ian-albert.com/misc/bigimages/gutierrez/sea-monster2-150dpi.jpg

23. Empty shadowboxes for me to put things in--made of cardboard is fine.

24. Coral. Real, resin, plastic, anything. White. Not crocheted, though, please--it would gather too much dust.


25. Such a beautiful mobile: http://flickr.com/photos/kitchentablemama/2335707986/in/pool-632453@N23

26. Cuttings of your house plants! I love, love plants and had to leave my collection behind in NY when I moved to Colorado. It's so bloody dry here that only the strong survive, so especially succulent/cacti type plants...I really miss my jade plant especially. You can wrap the roots/root buds in a wet paper towel, put the whole thing in a ziploc bag and mail it, as long as you're not too far away. I'm building terrariums, too, so small plants would be nice. I already have a spider plant and a philodendron.

27. These type pillows, except not pillows--framed in black frames. A typewriter font S and C. http://wists.com/myloveasdeep/47fe96d8e3e280f3bfe872b80e4d6028?offset=0

28. Anything Edward Gorey! Wall art, t-shirts, bags, pillows, whatever...I suddenly love all his stuff.

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.
