I'm a 21 year old college student living in a dorm. I like useful items because I have very little space and dont like clutter. My style is pretty casual. My favorite colors are reds, black, cream and jewel toned colors. I don't like neons, pastels, pinks, yellows or purples. I love to crochet and knit (beginner) but have tried many other crafts. I love to sew but don't have access to my sewing machine during the school year. I like Stitch and Totoro. I love kittens, cats, birds and most other animals! Im also starting a shot glass collection (so far have Seattle and Philadelphia). Take a look at my wists for more stuff I like. Thanks if you pick me!

I claim Avian Flight for an ATC starter kit.  List in a sec.

fourth claim
out: 3 sent (2 received, 1 in transit, 1 in progress including this claim)
in: 0 received

Let me see, my name is Kerri, age 31.  I live in Maine with the hubby, one 19 yr old college student and a cutie pie 4 yr old girl.  My husband also has another daughter in college.  We have pets, 4 kitties, a doggie and a fish that is living FOREVER, seriously she's almost 7 years old.

I'm kind of crass, usually quite inappropriate humor wise.  I try to keep myself in check until I know someone.

My mother owned a craft store and I worked there full time from ages 9-15 so I've always had my hands into one craft or another.  I tend to go in spurts, flitting from interest to interest.

My taste swings towards cutsie Japanese, Sanrio (Hello Kitty , Chococat, Tim and Tammy, JellyBean, Chi Chai Monchan, Landry, SugarBunnies, Tenorikuma, etc...), traditional Asian, edge, punk, old school punk (I like both.)  I love Halloween, Day of the Dead, kokopellis, skulls, birds, stuffies, genuine vintage and anything else that strikes my fancy.

My fetishes: Pens, pencils, art supplies, journals and notebooks, paper, blankets and throws, fuzzy knit socks, incense, baking scented candles, animals and wooden boxes.

Colors! I love hot pink, deep or deepish purple, black, white, brown with light pink, brown with baby blue, chocolate brown and red.

OK, on to the list!


Books



  • Plushorama
  • Doodle Stitching




DIY Craft Kits (pre-made or you put together, either is awesome!)

This is stuff I have either never done or did so long ago I have little or no supplies and have forgotten most of it.


  • Screenprinting Kit - I can dream! LOL
  • Stenciling on Clothing (freezer paper method) Kit
  • Book Binding/Making Kit
  • Resin Jewelry Kit
  • Soldering Glass Slides Jewelry Kit (I can buy the iron and I already have jewelry findings, wires and clasps.)



Supplies


  • Already dyed/colored roving for making felted critters and such. Any and all colors welcome, zebras should be purple if you ask me.
  • Simply Spray Stencil Spray Thank you contrivant! Wink pending
  • Embossing powders (I already have light blue, purple and silver.) Thank you frosty772! Wink pending
  • Large background patterned rubber stamps (used is fine!)
  • Small alphabet typewriter style stamps (the old fashioned letters with the circles around them, I have a set without circles, again used is OK by me)
  • Linoleum for making lino printing blocks, preferably mounted.
  • Paint made for lino printing like Speedball (all colors needed, doesn't have to be fancy brandname.)


Crafted Items


  • MOST WANTED ITEM! WEIRD REQUEST WARNING! I have Raynaud's Syndrome which means my hands are extremely sensitive to cold.  I live in Maine so yeah, harsh winters.  I sometimes find it difficult to craft due to cold hands.  I would REALLY like some wrist warmers knitted/crocheted in a lightweight warm yarn with the fingers but the tips missing  from first joint up.  This way my hands and fingers can be warm and I can still craft with the tips of my fingers showing.  I can send measurements my fingers are short.  I hope that makes sense.  I think they might be called knucks! Thank you Sansa!! You've saved me from a whole craftless season Smiley pending
  • Knitted or crocheted warm fuzzy maryjane slippers 7/M US size
  • A snuggly throw or lapquilt made from anything other than fleece.


Surprise Me with One of These Themes

Please no jewelry unless it's a fabric/yarn/wood or something wristcuff as I'm allergic to most metals and I have tons of purses, hats and scarves so those aren't needed either.  Thank you!!!




Misc.


  • A laptop computer with at least 4 USB ports. 2 GB RAM, 250 Gig Hard-drive and Labelflash.  hahahaha, no. really.

Thank you in advance for anyone who chooses me.  I'll post pics Smiley  If you think you have something I'd like that's not on my list, feel free to PM me, If I covet it, I can add it so you can claim it. Smiley

I claim Vala_Amaris for some embossing powders.

This is my first claim of two.  none sent none recieved.

List in a second


Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 35 and im a stay at home mom to three boys in NE OH.  I like to sew, quilt.  I am starting to get into embroidery and can crochet a little bit.  Im very much into girly type stuff and love anything regency -titanic era. I also love 30s-40s things as well.  I am allerigc to nickel.
 
Here are my wishes
First off any surprise off my wist list is great!!

Scarves (crochet or knitted) for christmas (of course im not asking one person to knit or crochet all of these.  Feel free to pick a male) or however many if your feeling ambitious!!)
Black for 7yo son
Gray for 9yo son
Black and Blue for 16yo son
Black hat and Scarf for Husband

 
Big Wishes include:
**Beaded or crocheted/knitted Miser Bag example like this http://www.onceuponapattern.com/59.html or this one http://www.somewhereintime.tv/antiques/miser.html (im not asking for exact replicas of these. However it is ok if they are lol !!).
 
**Civil War Era Cape called a Mathilde Mantilla (Think of a Civil War era Poncho.  This is basically what it is)  Here is a link to the pattern http://www.uvm.edu/%7Ehag/godey/images/s5902170.jpg  and here is an example of what it looks like http://www.thegracefullady.com/civilwargowns/ready-mades_silkmantle.htm Measurements will be provided.  Wool blend or Corduroy would be great. Hood is decrotive and is not functional. It only uses around 3 yards.  I would also prefer it lined for warmth. It would be great if I could retain the pattern as well for future projects.  (I can sew I just cant figure out how to make it <frown>) without a predrafted pattern.  OR If someone with any drafting skills wouldnt mind drafting a pattern to my size I could play around with it and make my own (If I have a pattern to work with)
 
Knitting and Crocheted Items
Knitted scarf in Black (I cant knit yet be envy those who can)

Crocheted Victorian Reticule like this one http://www.knitheaven.com/vintagepatterns/23_LADYS_RETICULE_CROCHET.htm

Primitive Rageddy Ann doll (An example is in my wists)

Knitted sleeve cuffs http://www.spunmag.com/article/050410cuffs
I love this shawl and am willing to wait longer if anyone will make it for me. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CivilWarShawlKAL/  Im not picky about color.  Would be just happy to even have one.
A Nubia (Civil War Knitted Scarf). Red or Heather Gray would be lovely.  Im not sure if the link will take you directly there.  http://www.raggedsoldier.com/  If it doesnt Click on Needlework Necessities and Novelties and go to knitting patterns.


 
Sewn Items
Handwarmers like the ones offered at Hot Topic. Victorian Goth ones would be perfect.

Tote bag (I really need one of these lol)
Crazy Quilted Purse
Victorian capelet.  At least waist length please email for length.
Regency or Victorian era Reticule
Petticoat either knee or ankle length !!  (Im 5'5 email for length)
 
 
Supplies that are always needed
Im always needing thread for sewing.  The more the merrier !!

2 yard lengths of eyelet trims and any color is welcome !!

Goth/punk/skulls inspired fabric that is at least .5 yards  ( I use these in my home sewing business.  I know ..... I thought she liked victorian and girly. It sells lol)

Purse handles and supplies.  Silver victorian clasps would be great too.
 
Anything Betty Boop is welcomed

Crafted Items
 
Bars of handmade soap (the kind that is made from lye).  I have always wanted to try it!!  Lavender, oatmeal, goats milk, citrus are great however any scents are welcome!!  Or soap supplies as I would love to learn how to make my own. Premade bars are appreciated as I have young children and am concerned with having lye in the house. 
 
Ive always been curious about those soap bombs.  My kids would probally love them !!  Also jars of bath salts would be fantasic as well.
 
A beaded Victorian Choker would be lovely.
 

Collected Items
 
I collect cookbooks from the victorian and ewardian eras !!  Or earlier if you can find them.
 
Godeys Ladies Book (In later years it was Godeys Ladies Magazine)!!!  Ebay has them frequently just type in Godeys and they will come up.  They were like the victorian Vogue Magazine of the day.  Petersons Magazines are great too.  You can usually get these pretty inexpensively and all years 1830-1890s are welcome !!  I paid anywhere from $4-$9 for the few I have.  Dont worry duplicates are fine.
 
Vintage Sewing Patterns!!  36 Bust is perfect. 
Im especially trying to find a Jumper from 1948(?) Simplicity 2705.
 
Candles are great too.  Prefer either fruit scented ones or lavender (only floral scented one)

A bag of Lindt Chocolates (the mixed variety bag!!  I love these!!)

I would also like some candy if you are outside the US !!

To line my messenger bag!

Learn German Kit!
The boy and I are taking a German class in the evenings and I wont name names but one of us is having a little trouble. I think that hearing spoken German really helps a lot. I was even thinking maybe some really basic kids books in German. Dick and Jane or See Spot Run style. Maybe a kids DVD or even just packages of candy with German words on them. Bribery with candy always seems to go over well. Ill take anything that might help us along.

A full length retro style apron. I love 50s style anything!
Whenever I cook I get gunk ALL OVER MYSELF!
http://www.wishingfish.com/hostaprons.html
Any on Wishing Fish are waay cute!

Bath Stuff
I have this bath salt that totally unclogs my stuffy nose! Its filled with all that good stuff like Eucalyptus, Tea Tree and Peppermint. If you can make similar soap, lotion, bath bombs etc etc I would appreciate it. The stuff I currently have is called Barefoot Venus Therapeutic Mustard Bath.

Cocoa butter, Shea butter some essential oils that would go well with rose. Maybe cinnamon! Essentially the goods to craft me some massage bars.


About Me:

Hi, Im B! Im 21 years young and I live in Alberta, Canada. I love to sew and I am currently working on my entrance portfolio for Fashion Design in Fall 2008.

This past summer I bought a bicycle and I cannot seem to get off the thing for dear life. Hey name is Lilly and she is a purple and pearlized white Specialized Dolce Elite. I bet no one knows what this means but I just had to babble about my new favourite pastime besides sewing. If you are also into bikes and have a good idea for a seat bag or a handle bar bag in matching pearlescent white vinyl by all means grab it as a wish!

I have a sensitive little nose so if you smoke please Febreeze, I am also allergic to most perfumes and cant handle strong cleaner type smells. Think lemon, orange etc etc.

My style is fairly minimal and I am trying to reign in my taste for terrible tacky items. I love glitter and gold and sequins more than possibly imaginable. I am trying to take my love of mismatch to a more refined place of mixing unexpected prints etc etc. That being said I am the kind of girl who doesnt even wear makeup. I role out of bed and brush my hair (sometimes). My favourite colours and themes reflect that. I love earth tones and rich colours. Green is my favourite followed closely by purple, brown and amber/goldenrod. I have a strange love for that mustardy/goldy colour that no one else seems to like! I like black accessories because then I can get away with pairing them with every outfit I own. I also adore elephants! REALLY. Trees and leaves and birds and anything natur-y are good themes too. When it is warm out I am constantly outside getting myself dirty and when it is cold out I'm a home-body who spends a lot of time crafting and cooking and reading.

As for dislikes I am not a fan of any brand names, pastels, and while I love Disney movies I feel that the characters are better left to children.

I tried to make this long and all encompassing since I havent posted very much and I dont have much on my wists.

ABOUT ME:

I am 26 years old and have been living in Chicago, IL for the past 2 years. I am originally from France, I have also lived in London, Germany and Tahiti (dont hesitate to send goodies from those places; I really miss a lot of things).
I am a nanny, so I tend to be very practical (no frilly, girly things in my wardrobe, sticky fingers are not forgiving). I like soft pinks, browns, reds and neutrals, blues are great too, no greens please. I love to read, fantasy and sci-fi in particular and I am a bit of a TV addict.

I claim poerava for a needle roll for DPNs and I'll throw in the stitch markers for good measure.  Will PM for prefs.

This is my third claim, 1 sent, 0 received.

- Woolen sweaters - 'dry clean only' so they full really well.  No size restrictions. 

- BIG WISH - feltable wool yarn in non-neon colors (can you tell my washer gets a workout?)

- A copy of Stitch 'n' Bitch and knitting needles, because I just can't bring myself to bribe Dulcinea any more.  Grin  I bought myself SnB, but some bamboo needles other than size 10 would be nice!

- An amigurumi beagle! Really, anything beagle related.  Mine is my only child, after all. A Snoopy shirt would be awesome.

- HUGE WISH! A tshirt or sweatshirt with the Nancy Drew silhouette from the older hardbacks

  - funky silk screened or embroidered or handpainted or whatever t-shirts or hoodies, or heck, sweatpants as long as I'm not going to sit on your efforts

 - something inspired by comic books - clothes, tote bag, etc.  I'm a big fan of the greats - Batman, Supes, Spidey.  Same goes for cello or classical music stuff.

 - hardcover books with colorful fronts (no jacketed ones, please). 

 - old vinyl records small 45s or the larger ones are good

 - black and white photos of people Thanks talihina_sky!

 - posters or cards of those older European advertisements with bright colors http://www.allposters.com/-sp/Cognac-Monnet_i404819_.htm?aid=246987

 - Easy-to-crochet-with yarn.  I like the chunky kind, because it goes so fast! Nothing eyelashy please.

 - Looking to get rid of those yarn bits left over from projects? If they're at least a foot long you can send them to me.

- A magic yarn ball!

- zippers, buttons, belt buckles, purse handles, ribbon, other neat sewing notions Thanks talihina_sky!

- Any good munchies so I can distract myself at work.  I am on a gluten-free (no wheat) diet, but chocolate is always welcome! And if you live in the Southern US and can send me Cheez Doodles (the crunchy, not the puffy) I will love you forever. Thanks *Maria*!

 - For my man, small GI Joe or similar size figures to customize.  He customized a figure to look like me! What crafty kids we would have. 

- For my son, Jake T. Beagle, some stuffed animals to chew on and maybe some doggie treats (you've got your kids, I've got mine, hehe)

 - And always, the wist at the bottom.

Other things about me: I am a flitting crafter.  I try something, conquer and move on, but always love to go back! I sew, quilt, crochet and throw pottery when I can find a class.  Also have the random education of an engineering degree with a minor in classical studies, so I work in construction and play cello.  Whatever pays the bills, right? Have a boyfriend and we share a beagle who basically owns the house.  Thanks in advance for picking me!

I claim Grieney for GI Joe like figures and doggie treats.

fifth claim
out: 3 sent (2 received, 1 in transit, 2 in progress including this claim)
in: 0 received

Let me see, my name is Kerri, age 31.  I live in Maine with the hubby, one 19 yr old college student and a cutie pie 4 yr old girl.  My husband also has another daughter in college.  We have pets, 4 kitties, a doggie and a fish that is living FOREVER, seriously she's almost 7 years old.

I'm kind of crass, usually quite inappropriate humor wise.  I try to keep myself in check until I know someone.

My mother owned a craft store and I worked there full time from ages 9-15 so I've always had my hands into one craft or another.  I tend to go in spurts, flitting from interest to interest.

My taste swings towards cutsie Japanese, Sanrio (Hello Kitty , Chococat, Tim and Tammy, JellyBean, Chi Chai Monchan, Landry, SugarBunnies, Tenorikuma, etc...), traditional Asian, edge, punk, old school punk (I like both.)  I love Halloween, Day of the Dead, kokopellis, skulls, birds, stuffies, genuine vintage and anything else that strikes my fancy.

My fetishes: Pens, pencils, art supplies, journals and notebooks, paper, blankets and throws, fuzzy knit socks, incense, baking scented candles, animals and wooden boxes.

Colors! I love hot pink, deep or deepish purple, black, white, brown with light pink, brown with baby blue, chocolate brown and red.

OK, on to the list!

My wanted super bad, make my whole month/year/lifetime wishes are bold Wink


Books



  • Plushorama
  • Doodle Stitching
  • Altered Art




DIY Craft Kits (pre-made or you put together, either is awesome!)

This is stuff I have either never done or did so long ago I have little or no supplies and have forgotten most of it.


  • Screenprinting Kit - I can dream! LOL
  • Stenciling on Clothing (freezer paper method) Kit
  • Book Binding/Making Kit
  • Resin Jewelry Kit
  • Soldering Glass Slides Jewelry Kit (I can buy the iron and I already have jewelry findings, wires and clasps.)



Supplies


  • Already dyed/colored roving for making felted critters and such. Any and all colors welcome, zebras should be purple if you ask me.
  • Simply Spray Stencil Spray Thank you contrivant! Wink pending
  • Embossing powders (I already have light blue, purple and silver.) Thank you frosty772! Wink pending
  • Large background patterned rubber stamps (used is fine!)
  • Small alphabet typewriter style stamps (the old fashioned letters with the circles around them, I have a set without circles, again used is OK by me)
  • Linoleum for making lino printing blocks, preferably mounted.
  • Paint made for lino printing like Speedball (all colors needed, doesn't have to be fancy brandname.)


Crafted Items


  • MOST WANTED ITEM! WEIRD REQUEST WARNING! I have Raynaud's Syndrome which means my hands are extremely sensitive to cold.  I live in Maine so yeah, harsh winters.  I sometimes find it difficult to craft due to cold hands.  I would REALLY like some wrist warmers knitted/crocheted in a lightweight warm yarn with the fingers but the tips missing  from first joint up.  This way my hands and fingers can be warm and I can still craft with the tips of my fingers showing.  I can send measurements my fingers are short.  I hope that makes sense.  I think they might be called knucks! Thank you Sansa!! You've saved me from a whole craftless season Smiley pending
  • Knitted or crocheted warm fuzzy maryjane slippers 7/M US size
  • A snuggly throw or lapquilt made from anything other than fleece.


Surprise Me with One of These Themes

Please no jewelry unless it's a fabric/yarn/wood or something wristcuff as I'm allergic to most metals and I have tons of purses, hats and scarves so those aren't needed either.  Thank you!!!




Misc.


  • A laptop computer with at least 4 USB ports. 2 GB RAM, 250 Gig Hard-drive and Labelflash.  hahahaha, no. really.

Thank you in advance for anyone who chooses me.  I'll post pics Smiley  If you think you have something I'd like that's not on my list, feel free to PM me, If I covet it, I can add it so you can claim it. Smiley  Every wish granted is sincerely appreciated!!
