I claim scienceissexy for a make your own paper kit.

4th claim, 0 sent, 3 received.

I live in Wilmington, NC. I'm a vegetarian: somewhere between semi & ovo-lacto (AKA I do eat fish). I love Japanese art and culture. Anything crafted out of Japanese fabric would be wonderful. I love green & nature. I have a kitty, and we live together in a downtown apartment. I'm into the wonder of bamboo: just got some yarn in another swap!!! More than anything I definitely prefer stuff that can be used! I'm in an apartment, and as said by others, space is a premium!

Place mats/napkins for work: place mats with pockets for silverware, etc. Can match or not. That's kewl. ***NEW***
Craftster Package for my Mom: She's be incredibly impressed with pics she's seen of things I've received, and I think she deserves to be in on it too. She loves gardening (LOTS), tea (would not use a tea wallet - Twinings English Breakfast is her fave), horses, roses, reading. She has an odd sense of humor: signs in her yard include: Go Away, Trespassers will be shot. Survivors will be shot again, Beware...Just Beware. She lives in the middle of no where and likes it that way! I sent her a couple of CP soaps I received from Maremare in another swap, and she LOVED them. She has a twin sized bed. She lives in Missouri. She has a dog named Charlie and some cats. She loves Hershey bars--just the plain milk chocolate ones. That's all I can think of at the moment. I'll give you her direct address. She would LOVE IT!!! ***NEW***
Laptop bag: if the fabric has green leaves on it, that would be PERFECT! ***NEW***

I claim em0tionalprayer for : crochet hook roll, knitting needle roll & some fabric

3 claims/0 sent/0 rec'd

Hiya, I'm Karan and I live in the UK. I'm a 40 yr old housewife and mother and it suits me just fine.
We're smoke free but no longer pet free, I have a 10 week old kitten named Oscar. I keep him away from my craft stuff as much as possible but there might be a stray hair or two creeps into your package.

I'm a very tactile person; things have to be soft or textured (and still soft!) I'm a nightmare when clothes shopping as everything has to have "feel appeal" as well as being the right size/shape/colours . I  like curves not points, waves not spikes,circles not squares - you get the picture?

I'm a true child of the '70s and love the whole decade from the end of the Flower Power era to the reign of Punk to all the Glam between.  I've have been described as " a happy hippy with Goth/punk leanings" and I won't argue with that!

I have a blog page full of swap related info including sizes and colour preferences,but basically if it's PURPLE then its GOOD  My wist can be used for inspiration too, don't think you have to make exact copies of my wistys
http://www.wists.com/kookaloo

I love the lionbrand half moon shawls and they work up quite fast with the 9mm hook and the Seraphina shawl http://www.angelfire.com/journal2/donisfuff/croshawl.html

Artwork - not looking for the Mona Lisa here but I know we have some very talented artists on here and I would be proud to hang your work on my boring walls! Brighten up my life (my home) paintings/collages/photographs/wallhangings all appreciated

Knitted socks - not sure if this is too big a wish  Huh  I'm a UK size 7.5/EU 41. use up your oddments on me, they don't even have to match so long as the size is right! I have fat ankles though so we'll need to talk about measurments if you choose this.  Maybe something like these  http://fpea.blogspot.com/2007/04/free-pattern-friday-footies.html  where my fat legs won't cause a problem *lol*

Cushion covers approx 16" square, in duck egg blue or bright blue

I claim Mlsocci74 for a travel chalkboard.

This is my first claim, none sent, none received.

I am in Wyoming and I have a two-year-old son and a wonderful husband. I like to sew and try new crafts.

Crafts
Sewn

Apron

I love simple dresses and am very open to lots of different fabricsI just always seem to get frustrated when its ME in charge of the sewing!

Circle skirt- with just an elastic waistband, nothing fancy

Any kind of bag- I love the Amy Butler bags I see here, but I am open to pretty much any bagfrom little coin purses to big honkin tote bags.

Sock Monkey- the original plain sock monkey

BEADWORK

Big chunky necklaces and bracelets

Woodwork/Art

Art- I like art pieces that are smaller and reminiscent of Nick Bantocks style http://www.nickbantock.com/

I also am appreciative of any Catholic themed artwork.

Craft Supplies

I need both pinking shears and those little thread snipper scissors.

Amy Butler patterns- new or used

Retro fabrics/retro inspired fabrics- bold prints from the 40s, 50s, and 60s.

Kitschy fabrics- silly prints, preferably retro inspired (ie Pin Up Girls)

Crochet kit- Ive tried OVER and OVER and all I can get is this tiny little sad square that takes days. If there is the crochet whisperer in this group, help me branch out from my sweater machine and Knifty Knitters!

Serger (ha ha! Just in case Bill Gates signed on for OWS 33)

Bias tape of all kinds

Buttons- any kind, any shape. My mom has a giant button tin Im jealous about. I too often cannibalize existing garments for buttons.

Ribbon- for nothing in particular. I like looking at pretty ribbon and adding it to projects

Rubber stamps- letter groups, stick figures, sayings (Thank you, Happy Birthday, etc.), pretty much anything

Embroidery hoop and floss

Jewelry making supplies...I'm trying desperately to make something that looks good...

Sigh...all of you have been having yarngasms...has a fabricgasm ever happened? 'Cause I want one!  Grin

Extras
Stuff from where you are or stuff that's unique to you. I also have a two-year-old who is still excited by little things for him.

A little about me: Im a wife, mother and engineer. I mostly sew, but I also like doing some yarn stuff with my full collection of Knifty Knitter looms. I do a little embroidery, but mostly rustic. I really like Italian inspired items, Spanish and Mexican influence items, bright bold colors and retro kind of things. I LOVE the 40s and 50sthe styles, the colors, the tailoring. I like wearing knits, but I cant seem to sew them. Im a fan of thrifted items and like to live by reduce/reuse/recycle. This first wish list was hard to put together, so definitely let me know if you need more and I am SO open to someone making me something I didnt think of for myself. I was the kid who always loved ordering the grab box from companies that then grew up to be a ebay sucker for lots of things.

I claim mountaingrrl for...  Sigh...all of you have been having yarngasms...has a fabricgasm ever happened? 'Cause I want one! 

This is my third claim (none sent yet) and I'm in Canada.  I'll get my list.


Crafted Stuff

* Wind chimes - something silvery or blue or both and tinkly (as opposed to loud and clanky).
* Other stuff for my deck window boxes, decorated pots, all-weather cushions, etc. (black, grey, blue, tan and any mixtures of those colours).
* Wrist corsage-style pin cushion.   -- thanks ritapizza
* Sewing machine cover, something awesome and funky.
* Yummy smelling fruity candles (especially coconut and citrus), no florals please.  Anybody make soy candles? 
* Project Journal 3 Ring Binder Style.
* Birding journal small decorated, lined book to keep track of the birds I see. 
* Video iPod case Im afraid to take it anywhere, which defeats the purpose of an iPod.  Nothing too cutesy please.  Padded fabric or a soft yarn would be awesome.
* Pillow and cases and covers and cushions embroidered, sewn, quilted, stenciled, whatever.  Lots of examples on my wists.
* I broke my magnifying compact and I still havent replaced it, and I thought someone might want to make me a decorated one??  Yes/no??   Must be magnifying, I am old and blind.
* Wall hanging/mini-quilt black and white (with some colour is okay), up to 24 inches wide, any length.  Is that too huge of a wish?  -- apparently not, THANK YOU quilted!!!
* Something for the cats scratching post, kitty pi, fabric cat bed, hammock, igloo, tunnel, basically anything they can sleep in, on or around.  Ideas on my wist too.
* I am fascinated by the whole bento concept.  Is there such a thing as a starter kit?

Supplies

* Fabric or flat cotton sheets (double size or larger) in any black/white combo.  I need two (they don't have to match, in fact I'd prefer them not to) to make a duvet cover out of.  Used is fine as long as they aren't stained or worn out.  Unless you desperately want to make me the duvet cover.  Grin   That would work too.
* Yarn I do not recognize the concept of too much yarn, it is impossible.  I am on a mission to make afghans/lapghans for the local nursing homes, so non-crappy acrylic (especially soft baby acrylic) is always good, though I really dont need more white.  Theres no such thing as too much cotton (especially bright colours).  In spite of my allergy, I have a list of want-to-do patterns longer than my arm that are felted, so Im ready to try wool again.   -- thanks Therisa    Id also love to try fancy types that I cant get here soy, bamboo, hemp, wool blends, etc.  Especially bamboo.  I have a project in mind for my mom that requires 4x80g of a bamboo yarn.  A bright or jewel tone colour would be fantastic.  I hate buying online, I always get the colour wrong.  This being said, I do not recognize novelty yarn (including the evil boucle) as actual yarn.  No need to send any of that. 
* Soy wax.  I can't seem to find any locally.
* Cool buttons!
* Glass vase marble thingies (like this http://www.save-on-crafts.com/glassvasegems1.html) in dark blue, clear or silver.
* Crochet hooks (I seem to be running low on E-I, I keep giving them away when I teach people) used are fine, Ive never used anything but Boye so all these bamboo, comfort-grip, fancy-schmancy hooks interest me. 

Extras

* Piano (any level) sheet music.  If its not my style Ill use it for a decoupage project idea. 
* Coffees and teas from oh-so-foreign lands (aka anywhere that isnt small town Canada).
* See above but substitute gum.
* I love interesting foods and recipes.  I live in the middle of nowhere,  I have to drive an hour to buy milk, so Id love to receive exotic ingredients.  Please dont send anything perishable, mail takes forever to get here.
* Surprise me!  I like useful things as opposed to purely decorative.  Storage ideas are always appreciated. 

* I have a wist.  Its growing every day!



About Me

Hi, Im Allison, a 30-whatever year this is (8??) year old hermit from the wilds of Ontario.  Seriously, I have more deer and bears visit than people, and Im okay with that.  I am completely ready for the apocalypse and would be happy to share my rutabagas and pemmican making skills with the people of Craftster.  I have two large dogs and three cats that think they are dogs.  These days my primary craft is crochet though Im attempting to better my embroidery skills.  I have trouble remember to take pictures of FOs, but  I finally have a digital camera, its around here somewhere.  I have the attention span of a gnat. 

I love nature and animals (except when theyre eating my garden or ripping open the garbage bin), music and books.  I love the idea of babies (which is why Im a fantastic baby shower guest) but would sooner chew off my own arm than have one.  I dont have a favourite colour, though I do believe that yellow is best used sparingly and bright turquoise is a tool of the devil.  I refuse to acknowledge the existence of neons.   I am decorating a new house and you can check my profile for colour schemes if you want.  Im allergic to most metal and dont wear jewelry.  I don't have a sweet tooth but I'm addicted to coffee, gum and potato chips.  I never use a sentence when I can use an entire paragraph.  Also, Im only marginally computer literate but Im working on it. 

Thanks in advance to whoever claims me.

Hiya!  My name is Amber, I'm 22 years old and I live in Reno, NV with the love of my life (my boyfriend Bobby) and my cat Rafiki (yes like the monkey from Lion King).  I am currently attending community college off and on as a business major.  I work in a call center for GemsTV (we sell jewlery on DirectTV).  I'm a music freak, I love all kinds of music and I tend to be a pirate when it comes to both music & movies (Arrr where's yer booty?)  Lately I've been really into self help and trying to get healthier.  Um...I think thats it!  Let me know if I slipped something into my list thats a no-no Smiley
