I'll claim RainbowArt for a knit fruit/veggie hat for her kiddo (when she has it).
This is my first claim and I'm in Minnesota, USA.

I like a lot of things, so if you need more details, you can PM me, but among my lists include: desserts/pastries, LOLcats, mustaches, maneki neko/lucky cats, anthropomorphized stuff, robots, automats, scary dinosaurs & dino skeletons, sea creatures (especially jellyfish right now), space/planets, Star Trek (TOS), Portal, Futurama, Cooking Mama, Animal Crossing, and kawaii/cute japanese-y stuff.  I like bright colors (fuscia, turquoise, lime green) with black, and really faded pastel colors with chocolate brown.  I'm not terribly fond of neons or primary colors, and I don't really like synthetic fabrics (but synth/natural blends are fine), and I have sensitive skin, so no perfume/artificial stuff unless you PM me first.

1.  Pretty much anything with the theme of what I listed above, especially if you share enthusiasm for the theme.
2.  I just got a spinning wheel, so if you dye roving, I'd love some to spin up!
3.  Pretty much anything sewn, because my sewing skills are only passable.  Purses, knitting bags, pajama pants/shorts, hats, a pillow cover for my kitties, or whatever else you think of!
4.  Felt food pin cushions or tree ornaments!  I have a couple of pie ones and a sweet tart shaped one, but I'll take other things too, tacos, cheeseburgers, things like that.
5.  I could use a new planner for 2008.  It's kind of a big/weird request, so if you just did a month or two, that would be fine!
6.  Polymer clay foods are good too, especially if I can make jewelry from them.
7.  I'm trying to get quilt squares for a Craftster quilt, so 12"x12" (finished size) quilt squares are always welcome.  Any kind of combo of squares would work too (like 4 6"x6", for example).  Cotton fabrics though, please.
8.  If you do something unique, or are really good at something and want to share, feel free to share with me.   Wink

If I need to add more, I'll post again in a few hours.

I claim the littlest ninja for some cute japanese-esque planner for 2008!

This is my first claim.

Hi everyone! I’m a sophomore college student majoring in engineering at a university in Southern California. I absolutely adore pastel colors as well as black and white as the background colors of stuff. I like solid shapes and designs (such as stars, spirals, and rings).

My Wish List:

A messenger bag, like the purple one here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=11808.msg92700#msg92700.
I’d prefer it to be a darker color with a cute fabric lining inside and along the front. Hopefully, it’ll be big enough for me to use during the school year, so big enough to carry a few notebooks and stuff. Adjustable straps would be awesome, as would an inside zipper pocket.

Big Wish A tote bag
I really like the tote bag here, http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8209399. A totebag with that kind of similiar shape, design and fabric would be wonderful! Another tote bag I like is, http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8657318.

Earrings
I love to wear earrings! I would love a pair of earrings with a matching necklace with the necklace being like this http://www.beadstudio.com/info.php?a=989.  I’m not a big fan of studs, and I have no allergies that I know of.

Purse
I really like the shape of this purse: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=210432.0
An average sized purse would be nice, made of cloth.

A little moleskin journal
Something that I can carry in my purse for me to jot down notes.

Tatting kit
I actually have a shuttle, but I have no clue how to use it! Anytime that can teach me now to tat would be awesome!

Quilling Kit
I would love a kit for quilling, since I recently discovered it, and I think it’s awesome!

Thanks!! ^^

I claim errka for some jewelry supplies.

This is my first claim for this round...

Hi! Im CrossStitchinMomma and Im live in Tennessee (USA). Im a married 25 year old SAHM of one. Im originally from England so any British candy (if youd like to know what types please PM me!) would be welcome as I cant get it over here! I love anything to do with Victorian or Tudor England. I love to knit. I know how to cross stitch but it generally takes a long time and I like finishing things quickly. I just bought a computerized sewing machine but it is super intimidating to me so I havent really used it yet but Id love to learn how to sew. Anything from my wist would be great too!!!

Okay first things first - if you live in the UK I will happily accept Cadburys Roses!!! I'm really missing British sweets!

This is my biggest wish of all! The Ruffled Skirt - its basically a pencil skirt with some ruffles (in black preferably & please PM me for measurements) from the Spring 07 issue of Adorn magazine. I have the pattern I just need someone to make it for me. PLEASE! I would be your best friend forever lol!

If you have a Victoria Secret gift certificate or gift card that you got for Christmas that you don't want to use or don't need I'm so wanting a bra from there so I'd happily (okay super happily!) take it off your hands for you! 

Supplies:

Cross Stitch:
BIG HUGE WISH
 - 11 count colored (it has to be colored) aida cloth (this is a present for my great grandmother who has bad eyesight but loves to cross stitch - as its a gift please make sure that the aida is in an unopened package) I can't find colored Aida anywhere and I need to send it out for Christmas soon as its going to England. If possible I would like at least one but more than one would be absolutely fantastic!!!
Thanks Greiney and more is always welcome!

Knitting:
Some skeins of any soft good quality yarn you can find (my favorite colors are black, purple and I like the rainbow colored yarns too but any color will do as long as its not turquoise, yellow, orange or anything neon yuck!)

Id like to learn how to knit cables so some cable knitting supplies would be great. Pending!

Patons Cashmere, Soy Silk, or Wool  yarn (please PM me for colors but pretty much anything would be okay)

Any other brand of wool (i.e. Lions Wool, etc) would be great too but again please PM for colors.

Some Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted Yarn for my upcoming project (the Celtic Tote from IK Winter 07) - Please PM me for colors as I'm not quite sure what color I'm making it yet...

Sewing:
 
Anything with Victorian ladies on it would be great.

Some fabric with four leaf clovers or Ireland (the word Ireland not actually Ireland itself lol) so I can make a purse for my best friend.

Books/Magazines/DVD (used is perfectly fine!):
A beginner book on felting
A beginner sewing book with lots of details, diagrams and descriptions! (Im a sewing machine virgin!) *I was claimed for this but more are always welcome!* - I now have Sewing for Dummies so I no longer need that but other books are welcome. 
A beginner dressmaking/clothing how to book.
Knitting on the Edge by Nicky Epstein
Knitting over the Edge by Nicky Epstein
Knitting beyond the Edge by Nicky Epstein
Any funky/hip knitting books like SnB or SnB Nation stuff like that.
I'd love to have this book! Mason-Dixon Knitting book by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne

Alternaknits by Leigh Radford
Last Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson
A DVD that shows me how to use my sewing machine!
101 Designer One Skein Wonders!



Crafted Items:

A wipe off rewards chart that is maybe magnetic too so I can reward my son for good behavior/ potty training.

A nice jewelry box that has storage where you can hang necklaces in it (crafted out of wood and preferably stained a cherry wood color). This can either be a crafted or a bought item. I'll post a link for an example if requested as I'm trying to find a nice one.

Pyramid studs & Plaid purse (a plain black purse or maybe some cute retro circle print would be great like this too but I really like this plaid material): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=55325.0

This can be crafted or bought. I'm not a huge fan of the color of this one though. I'd like a black or a purple one preferably. http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/073633.html

I'd like this http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/074074.html

One of these or something similar would be great as I have a large yarn stash and its all stuffed in my sewing desk. http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/074080.html

This would be nice for knitting on the go! http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/085525.html

I would love this (please PM me for sizes & colors) http://www.burdastyle.com/creations/show/1447

This would be SO cute! I would love this in these colors http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/344921.html

BIG WISH! Hanging Star Candleholder (more than one if you want to) (I really like the colors pictured for these but other colors would be okay too - please PM me) - http://cgi.ebay.com/Hanging-Star-Tea-Light-Candle-Christmas-Lantern-Green_W0QQitemZ140175499495QQihZ004QQcategoryZ10935QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Some of these socks - http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-firestarter

SUPER BIG HUGE WISH! My friend is not feeling well as she has some health issues so this would be fantastic! A cute purse with some sort of Irish theme for my best friend who loves Ireland and has a purse obsession. 4-leaf clovers or the word Ireland on something is usually what she likes the best. Maybe a green cordorouy purse with Ireland on it or something like that. PM me for ideas!

The amigurumi butterfly girl shown here - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=206251.msg2202969;topicseen#msg2202969

I would love one of these (in black & with the oriental theme would be nice) - http://www.lanternmoon.com/SNC.asp

I would totally love this and I would like be your best friend forever (or something like that) if you made this for me! Stained glass Union Jack (this would be great to hang in my window) - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6311151

Id love just the British Charm (I love this too!) http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6732827

A black messenger back with retro circles on it. Please PM for other colors and possibly an example if  I can find one.

A mail/bill organizer or a desk organizer with places to put pens, store paper, etc. Something that has at least a few pockets for mail and pens and is long and magnetic. I was thinking maybe something like the beside caddy looking only longer and with more pockets (or like the wall organizer but smaller and thinner with super strong magnets) If you're interested in making this I can go into more detail if you PM me.   

This one can be bought or crafted. If someone knows how to make or woul like to buy one - a lapdesk and would like to make one for me or my son that would be wonderful. They sell these for like $10 at Hobby Lobby too if you need to see what they look like. Theres a pic on this link too - If you are wondering what a lapdesk is its this thing (it doesn't need to have a cup holder and just plain material would be fine)...http://img.inkfrog.com/click_enlarge1.php?image=ldparislg_(Small).JPG&username=sharps_container_supply&aid=13168672


Some black and white photographs of old English churches or houses (preferably the ones made of stone or houses with thatched roofs). I know this one is a long shot but I can dream! Just so you get an idea Id like them all to be relatively uniform because I want a set of 3 to 5 to put in a photograph cluster on my wall. Here are a few examples: 

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7122617
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7067967

Misc. Wish List -

SUPER WISH! Some 3M Brushed Nickel Command hooks that are the size that hold coats. One would be great to start out but I'll ideally need 3 total.

3M command hooks - the large or the medium. I like the designer style the best please. 

A DIY beginner yarn dying kit. A yarn dying how to book would be great too. I love all of these hand dyed yarns that are so beautiful and I'd love to give it a try!

A beginner amigurumi kit. Crochet would be okay as I am learning but if you have any patterns for a knit amigurumi that would be great too!

A little devil amigurumi kit (or it would be nice if someone could just make me the little devil amigurumi!).

BIG WISH!!! Wallflowers (refills or starter kits) from Bath & Body Works - Any scent is good but just not Fig, Cinnamon or anything spicy smelling. I like anything with vanilla the best.

My son is 2 years old and he loves anything with Bob the Builder. He also loves trucks and motorcycles.

BIG WISH! A Thomas the Train piggy bank or a Bob the Builder piggy bank. Okay pretty much anything thats a piggy bank that relates to tools, trains, trucks, cars, dinosaurs, monster trucks, Fisher Price little people or anything like that would be fantastic! Oh and if it plays music that would be even better!!!!

BIG WISH! Fisher Price little people sets (my son has the barn, the garage and the ABC school thingie) or the little people by themselves. They can be gently used but new would be awesome!!!

A dinosaur amigurumi or a Bob the Builder amigurumi.

Okay this one is a far out one but I'd really love The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory on CD if anyone is done with it and would like to pass it on to me I would be so so so happy!

Anything with dinosaurs for my son...

Thanks in advance to anyone who picks anything from my list!!!

i claim KittyVegas for the dallas cowboy booties (we'll figure out what size)

this is my first claim this round, and I'm in Wisconsin

wish list (really big wishes in bold red)!

a satchel bag like this http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer05/PATTsatchel.html  (bright colors, use up all your felting colors?)

this felted backgammon board (or something similar)  http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_5311864,00.html

*** NEW *** a project bag - something to hold the one project, with the yarn, needles, pattern (I suspect my next project is socks)

i love this felted bag - http://www.talklikeapirate.com/knitlikeapirate.html

*** NEW *** the amanda's squatty sidekick purse  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=187674.msg1967806#msg1967806

SEWN THINGS:
a flamenco skirt like this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=3905.msg29436#msg29436

6" pieced squares for my craftster quilt - I'd prefer they not be plain 6" squares of fabric, but the pieced ones?

*** NEW *** a messenger style bag - big enough to hold my projects and all my normal purse stuff?  maybe like one of the necktie bags?

can anyone figure out how to make a shrug jacket like this?  I LOVE this jacket, but this is the only picture I have of it
http://www.wists.com/Dulcinea/7e8bc1ec576c4d291d9c7cd844f89887?offset=40

*** NEW *** a new project bag - yes, i have this in knitted, too - i have a great bag from a swap ages ago, a really big messenger bag - but now, i think i need a slightly smaller one - think a project like socks, so something with space for yarn, needles, project, pattern...

another big wish - the pants from Burda Pattern number 8316 - they're a pair of pants that I love - view A (long, not crops) in the smallest size (and we can talk about sizing) (I can provide pattern and fabric, I just need someone who's a better sewer than I to actually make 'em)

this skirt - anyone think they can find a pattern and make one?  it doesn't need to be so long... mid-calf would be perfect
http://www.shukronline.com/wt3601.html

If anyone loves to sew, I love this skirt!  would love a soft drapey sort of fabric
http://www.garnethill.com/jump.jsp?itemID=12386&itemType=PRODUCT&path=1%2C2%2C4477%2C9140%2C9143&iProductID=12386

a shirt like this, but long enough to tuck in - PM for sizing, please

Amy Butler Weekender bag

SUPPLIES:

hand-spun yarn

hand dyed yarn - worsted or sock weight?

crafting supplies:
  • soap making supplies - coconut oil, a soap making box mold
  • chunky weight wool - it's not like thick n quick, and it's not  like regular wool - it's somewhere in between, with a gauge of about 3-4 st. / 1 inch on about #8-10 needles...  anyway, in white, dark blue, forest green, deep purple, chocolate brown, something like that?
  • felting wool - i have a couple of projects that need felting wool, especially greens, purples, reds, both worsted weight and bulky weight - it can be undyed, and i can dye it myself

OTHER CRAFTED STUFF:

*** NEW *** something to decorate the walls - a collage, a shrine, quilted wallhanging, something like that?  themes might be oceans/seashore, irises/dragonflies, Dio de los Muertos...?

*** NEW *** i think we have a couple of potters - so a bowl, or cups?

a yarn cozy like this?  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21691.msg176577#msg176577

stained glass pendant or bracelet, especially if it was dragonfly or butterfly or iris

*** NEW *** embellished / stencilled hoodie - dragonflies, irises?  adult size medium (i like them big and comfy)

  • Knit with Beads: Stunning Shawls and Wraps: Easy Techniques, 15 Beautiful Designs
  • *** NEW *** A Gathering of Lace


Whatever you're really good at - my wist, and my list, are a good indication of the sort of things I like - if there's something you're really good at, and you think I might like it, feel free to plan a surprise - truly, when people make things in friendship, they're received that way, too
   
something inspired by my wist  http://www.wists.com/Dulcinea  (I got yelled at that I hadn't added anything lately, so added over 30 new things to my wist)

devil dogs!!  I'm always wanting devil dogs! (if you don't know what they are, you probably can't get them by you)  and thanks to Kerstin and Leah for sending me some!

*** NEW *** If outside the USA - coffees/sweets from your neck of the woods

and if i stall out the swap, someone yell at me, and i'll add more stuff.

... right... about me.  I'm the REALLY old lady in the crowd (even older since my last b'day, but i haven't hit 50 yet!), the one peering over the bifocals.  The one who may have managed to tear up my shoulder by knitting too much.  I have 1 teenager at home, and my day job is a computer programmer.  I have no allergies except MRI dye and a couple of antibiotics,  no issues with animal products, would prefer to avoid religion/religious articles and politics at all costs.... my favorite colors are the jewel tones, think ruby, sapphire, emerald... i don't do terribly well with pastels.  We live in an apartment, where space is always at a premium... so small things that sit on tables and shelves and don't do anything except collect dust aren't a great thing here.

Thanks in advance to anyone who chooses me

I claim Dulcinea for some green wool.

This is my 2nd claim with 0 sent.

Hi! Im CrossStitchinMomma and Im live in Tennessee (USA). Im a married 25 year old SAHM of one. Im originally from England so any British candy (if youd like to know what types please PM me!) would be welcome as I cant get it over here! I love anything to do with Victorian or Tudor England. I love to knit. I know how to cross stitch but it generally takes a long time and I like finishing things quickly. I just bought a computerized sewing machine but it is super intimidating to me so I havent really used it yet but Id love to learn how to sew. Anything from my wist would be great too!!!

WISHES IN RED ARE THE ONES I'D LIKE THE MOST! THANKS!

Okay first things first - if you live in the UK I will happily accept Cadburys Roses or some McVities Plain Chocolate Biscuits!!! I'm really missing British sweets!

This is my biggest wish of all! The Ruffled Skirt - its basically a pencil skirt with some ruffles (in black preferably & please PM me for measurements) from the Spring 07 issue of Adorn magazine. I have the pattern I just need someone to make it for me. PLEASE! I would be your best friend forever lol!

If you have a Victoria Secret gift certificate or gift card that you got for Christmas that you don't want to use or don't need I'm so wanting a bra from there so I'd happily (okay super happily!) take it off your hands for you! 

Supplies:

Cross Stitch:
BIG HUGE WISH
 - 11 count colored (it has to be colored) aida cloth (this is a present for my great grandmother who has bad eyesight but loves to cross stitch - as its a gift please make sure that the aida is in an unopened package) I can't find colored Aida anywhere and I need to send it out for Christmas soon as its going to England. If possible I would like at least one but more than one would be absolutely fantastic!!!
Thanks Greiney and more is always welcome!

Knitting:
Some skeins of any soft good quality yarn you can find (my favorite colors are black, purple and I like the rainbow colored yarns too but any color will do as long as its not turquoise, yellow, orange or anything neon yuck!)

Id like to learn how to knit cables so some cable knitting supplies would be great. Pending!

Patons Cashmere, Soy Silk, or Wool  yarn (please PM me for colors but pretty much anything would be okay)

Any other brand of wool (i.e. Lions Wool, etc) would be great too but again please PM for colors.

Some Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted Yarn for my upcoming project (the Celtic Tote from IK Winter 07) - Please PM me for colors as I'm not quite sure what color I'm making it yet...

Sewing:
 
Anything with Victorian ladies on it would be great.

Some fabric with four leaf clovers or Ireland (the word Ireland not actually Ireland itself lol) so I can make a purse for my best friend.

Books/Magazines/DVD (used is perfectly fine!):
A beginner book on felting
A beginner sewing book with lots of details, diagrams and descriptions! (Im a sewing machine virgin!) *I was claimed for this but more are always welcome!* - I now have Sewing for Dummies so I no longer need that but other books are welcome. 
A beginner dressmaking/clothing how to book.
Knitting on the Edge by Nicky Epstein
Knitting over the Edge by Nicky Epstein
Knitting beyond the Edge by Nicky Epstein
Any funky/hip knitting books like SnB or SnB Nation stuff like that.
I'd love to have this book! Mason-Dixon Knitting book by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne
The Knitting Answers book (again not sure who wrote it)
Alternaknits by Leigh Radford
Last Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson
A DVD that shows me how to use my sewing machine!
101 Designer One Skein Wonders!



Crafted Items:

A wipe off rewards chart that is maybe magnetic too so I can reward my son for good behavior/ potty training.

A nice jewelry box that has storage where you can hang necklaces in it (crafted out of wood and preferably stained a cherry wood color). This can either be a crafted or a bought item. I'll post a link for an example if requested as I'm trying to find a nice one.

Pyramid studs & Plaid purse (a plain black purse or maybe some cute retro circle print would be great like this too but I really like this plaid material): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=55325.0
This can be crafted or bought. I'm not a huge fan of the color of this one though. I'd like a black or a purple one preferably. http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/073633.html

I'd like this http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/074074.html

One of these or something similar would be great as I have a large yarn stash and its all stuffed in my sewing desk. http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/074080.html

This would be nice for knitting on the go! http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/085525.html

I would love this (please PM me for sizes & colors) http://www.burdastyle.com/creations/show/1447

This would be SO cute! I would love this in these colors http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/344921.html

BIG WISH! Hanging Star Candleholder (more than one if you want to) (I really like the colors pictured for these but other colors would be okay too - please PM me) - http://cgi.ebay.com/Hanging-Star-Tea-Light-Candle-Christmas-Lantern-Green_W0QQitemZ140175499495QQihZ004QQcategoryZ10935QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Some of these socks - http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-firestarter

SUPER BIG HUGE WISH! If you are a master of the sewing machine (I'm not! Sad ) I'd love for someone to make this. My best friend is not feeling well as she has some health issues so this would be a fantastic pickmeup for her! A cute purse with some sort of Irish theme for my best friend who loves Ireland and has a purse obsession. 4-leaf clovers or the word Ireland on something is usually what she likes the best. Maybe a green cordorouy purse with Ireland on it or something like that. PM me for ideas!

The amigurumi butterfly girl shown here - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=206251.msg2202969;topicseen#msg2202969

I would love one of these (in black & with the oriental theme would be nice) - http://www.lanternmoon.com/SNC.asp

I would totally love this and I would like be your best friend forever (or something like that) if you made this for me! Stained glass Union Jack (this would be great to hang in my window) - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6311151

Id love just the British Charm (I love this too!) http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6732827

A black messenger back with retro circles on it. Please PM for other colors and possibly an example if  I can find one.

A mail/bill organizer or a desk organizer with places to put pens, store paper, etc. Something that has at least a few pockets for mail and pens and is long and magnetic. I was thinking maybe something like the beside caddy looking only longer and with more pockets (or like the wall organizer but smaller and thinner with super strong magnets) If you're interested in making this I can go into more detail if you PM me.   

This one can be bought or crafted. If someone knows how to make or would like to buy one - a lapdesk would be wonderful. They sell these for like $10 at Hobby Lobby too if you need to see what they look like. Theres a pic on this link too - If you are wondering what a lapdesk is its this thing (it doesn't need to have a cup holder and just plain material would be fine)...http://img.inkfrog.com/click_enlarge1.php?image=ldparislg_(Small).JPG&username=sharps_container_supply&aid=13168672


Some black and white photographs of old English churches or houses (preferably the ones made of stone or houses with thatched roofs). I know this one is a long shot but I can dream! Just so you get an idea Id like them all to be relatively uniform because I want a set of 3 to 5 to put in a photograph cluster on my wall. Here are a few examples: 

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7122617
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7067967

Misc. Wish List -

SUPER WISH! Some 3M Brushed Nickel Command hooks that are the size that hold coats. One would be great to start out but I'll ideally need 3 total.

3M command hooks - the large or the medium. I like the designer style the best please. 

A DIY beginner yarn dying kit. A yarn dying how to book would be great too. I love all of these hand dyed yarns that are so beautiful and I'd love to give it a try!

A beginner amigurumi kit. Crochet would be okay as I am learning but if you have any patterns for a knit amigurumi that would be great too!

A little devil amigurumi kit (or it would be nice if someone could just make me the little devil amigurumi!).

BIG WISH!!! Wallflowers (refills or starter kits) from Bath & Body Works - Any scent is good but just not Fig, Cinnamon or anything spicy or musky smelling. I like the black vanilla rasberry, pink grapefruit, pearberry (anything fruity really) or anything with vanilla the best.

My son is 2 years old and he loves anything with Bob the Builder. He also loves trucks and motorcycles.

BIG WISH! A Thomas the Train piggy bank or a Bob the Builder piggy bank. Okay pretty much anything thats a piggy bank that relates to tools, trains, trucks, cars, dinosaurs, monster trucks, Fisher Price little people or anything like that would be fantastic! Oh and if it plays music that would be even better!!!!

BIG WISH! Fisher Price little people sets (my son has the barn, the garage and the ABC school thingie) or the little people by themselves. They can be gently used but new would be awesome!!!

A dinosaur amigurumi or a Bob the Builder amigurumi.

Okay this one is a far out one but I'd really love The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory on CD if anyone is done with it and would like to pass it on to me I would be so so so happy!

Anything with dinosaurs for my son...

Thanks in advance to anyone who picks anything from my list!!!

I pick crossstitchinmomma for:

BIG WISH! Hanging Star Candleholder (more than one if you want to) (I really like the colors pictured for these but other colors would be okay too - please PM me) - http://cgi.ebay.com/Hanging-Star-Tea-Light-Candle-Christmas-Lantern-Green_W0QQitemZ140175499495QQihZ004QQcategoryZ10935QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

This is my 1st claim.  0 sent.

I live in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.  I am a 40-ish (emphasis on "ish") year old, under-cover hippy freak mother of two boys ages 9 and 11.  I dabble in many different crafts, but don't do any of them consistently.

I love long skirts, long coats, embellished jeans, hoodies, and boots (I love boots!  I own over 30 pairs!)   I love white, black and red.  Not into pastels or frills!  My tastes vary from day-to-day.  Drives the husband crazy when it is gift buying time.  One day I'm extremely funky, the next very elegant.  Never know... So, wish list changes, ALOT!  But  my wist gives you a pretty good idea of my varied likes.


MY WISH LIST

NUMERO UNO!  Airbush Kit
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=320202857626&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=011
