*IMPORTANT PM INFO*: When sending PMs, please label them as OWS 34 with one of the following tags:

When sending a sent/received PM, please include the 'Send by' date so my craziness will stay at a minimum.

IMPORTANT: Remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0

Please bookmark this thread and/or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO THE ORGANIZERS VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!

Try to imagine a chain.  The first link is the first person whose wish list is on page 1 (Person A) - that will be the craftster member who was the very last wish list from Ongoing Wish Swap 33.

Now, we want to put another link in the chain.  People will read that list and see if there is something they want to/can make from the list.

Someone (Person B) will claim Person A for some item on their wish list.  They post a reply to the thread that says I claim Person A for [item].  This is my X claim (however many times they have picked someone for example, "this is my fourth wish, with one sent, and three received, (meaning that this is the fourth claim they've made, one is in transit to it's destination, and three of the items have been received by the people they previously claimed).  Also add your location, and any preferences or aversions I live in Wisconsin USA, I am a vegetarian, and I am allergic to wool.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!  This means you need to post who you are claiming and for what, how many claims you have made, including how many in transit and how many received, and your location/preferences/aversions.

Then comes the fun part!  After the introduction, Person B is the last link in the chain, and they post their wish list!!!  YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF SIX.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.

(Please have your list ready, this swap moves very quickly!  Please include your country at the start of your wish list). Person B will also PM Person A to get her address so they can mail the item when it is finished.   

Along comes Person C, who claims Person B for something on their list and the chain is built, link by link.  (If Person C wanted to make Person B a purse AND a stuffie, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  Then they post their list, and so on.

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.

After you have made your claim, you need to PM that person for their address.

Friends of Craftster are allowed 3 wishes at one time, others are allowed 2 wishes.  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish until your craft is received for this month.  Do not choose over your given limit.
 If you already have one claim that will be sent out late, please don't claim again until that one is sent out.

Become a Friend of Craftster!  Go here: http://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php

If you are at your limit of wishes, you can choose again once one of your partners receives, NOT when you send.
***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***

Let's keep the quality high here. I don't want to receive PMs with people concerned over the lack of quality of their items.  Please, just work your hardest to keep the bar high on the quality of items here!  Don't choose just for the sake of choosing; choose to make someone else a really AWESOME wish!

Now if the thread gets in a rut for a few days/hours, the person who made the last wish should add to their list if they can think of anything else, until someone decides to craft for them. Please make sure this is not you!

Unsure of where to find wish ideas?  Try the previous ongoing wish swap galleries or any other gallery on craftster.  Look through your fellow crafters wist lists.

Sending/Communicating/Feedback:
YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR.
IF YOU DO NOT SEND A MEDIUM ITEM YOU WILL BE GETTING NEGATIVE FEEDBACK.
( the medium can be a couple small items etc as long as it adds up to a medium )
( A medium item equals two hours of crafting time or 20$ worth of store bought items )

Please be communicative if you are having any issues. If you communicate you still need to send your item in a timely manner.  Communication does not mean you can send as late as you want.  After one week past the deadline you will have negative feedback.  This is only temporary as it will be changed back once you fulfill your obligation for late item(s).  Do not choose to craft an item if you do not think you can meet these deadlines.

THERE WILL BE FEEDBACK FOR THIS SWAP
I will be giving feedback in the following way:
-  great swapper: for those who follow all the rules
-  good/poor communication:  where applicable
-  sent late/early: where applicable
-  no dc number: failed to comply with the rule about using a delivery confirmation number for packages within your own country
- didn't post pictures: failed to post pictures of what they received without an adequate explanation to their partner
- did not follow item amount rule

Previous Swap Rounds:
If you are confused in any way by how this works, please look at some previous rounds:

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT POSTING PHOTOS IS STILL A REQUIREMENT FOR THIS SWAP.  IF YOU CAN'T TAKE PHOTOS, PLEASE MENTION IT TO THE PERSON WHO CLAIMS YOU.

TwiztidBlood - Will be your organizer, in charge of your claims, your sends and your receives, and your approval
Dinosaurus Meg - Will Be in charge of the ows 34 discussion thread. As well as any questions or concerns you have.

Heres the first list up for claims!

I think I'm sneaking in just under the wire to claim Samsara for a One Skein book I have no further need for and some yarn and other supplies and who knows what else. 

I'm in Canada, this is my fourth claim (1 sent, 2 rec'd) and I'll be right back with 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. 
* Anybody have a woodburning tool they don't use and would like to pass on? 

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.

I can't believe I stalled it already.  Bad sunny.  Anyway, I had to bake 17 dozen cookies this morning, so while I was doing that I managed to come up with some things to add to my list.  So....

Crafted Stuff

* My niece and I are making a "flower fairy" garden, so anything that fits this theme (fairy doors, crystals, wind chimes, fantastical flower creations, etc, etc.)
* 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.
* I guess my phone could use a little carry case/cozy too.  It's about yay-big.  If I knew where it was I'd measure it right this second, but I will get back to you on that.
* 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?
* Carved or sculpted or decorated pull for my ceiling fan.  A little bird would be amazing.  I have to jump to reach it now too, so an extender chain would be great.

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.

* Soy wax.  I can't seem to find any locally.
* Cool buttons!
* Grosgrain ribbon - all colours, 3/4, 5/8, something like that, I can use pieces as long as they are at least close to a foot long.
* 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. 
* Crochet hook cushion grips or something to make my thread hooks easier to use.
* Anybody have a woodburning tool they don't use and would like to pass on? 
* Knit klips!


Extras

* Piano (any level) sheet music.  If its not my style Ill use it for a decoupage project idea.

ok fine.

I claim sunspotted for 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 (i'll PM you about measurements)

this is my first claim this round, all of my OWS33 are still in transit <sigh> and I'm in Wisconsin (land of the drunks, according to the newspaper)

wish list (really big wishes in bold red)!

KNITTED AND CROCHETED THINGS:

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

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

the felted monster slippers in the SNB book?

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

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

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

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 am 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
http://www.kambriel.com/topwhite.html

Amy Butler Weekender bag - i'm actually needing one, and this would be a great bag to pack my stuff in!

OTHER CRAFTED STUFF:

a small, simple stained glass window in the style often found at the flea market, along these lines:  http://www.robomargo.com/Dscn1137.jpg

*** NEW *** if we have any potters - a bowl or two, or cups?

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

some sort of artwork for my bedroom?  it's all in oceany type colors, could be art, a collage, a quilted wall hanging...

*** NEW *** embellished / stencilled hoodie - dragonflies, irises?  adult size medium (i like them big and comfy, and preferably pull over, not zipped)

SUPPLIES:

hand-spun yarn

Noro Kureyon - if you have any leftovers in your stash, i'm trying to collect enough to make lizard ridge - i'm about halfway there!

*** NEW *** hand painted yarn - if you love to hand paint yarn, and have bare DK weight, i could really use 880 yards (generally 2 skeins?) in some blues/greens hand painted something?  i can dye the yarn, but i haven't gotten up the courage to try to do with the paint brush yet!

crafting supplies:
  • NON-Koolaid dyes for bare yarn
  • bare yarn in a fingering/DK weight
  • hairpin lace loom - as long as it has moron-proof instructions, please
  • 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?

Knitting and crocheting books - if one of these is just taking up space, I'd love to get a copy:
  • Twinkle's Big City Knits: 31 Chunky-Chic Designs
  • *** NEW *** Knitting Circles Around Socks: Knit Two at a Time on Circular Needles
  • *** NEW ***   Favorite Socks: 25 Timeless Designs from Interweave


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 

kandy kakes!!  Now that I have a decent supply of devil dogs, I think i need more chocolate kandy kakes (they don't sell them in wisconsin)! (if you don't know what they are, you probably can't get them by you)  and thanks to everyone who sent me devil dogs!!

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 (somehow, those AARP mailings aren't quite so funny anymore!), the one peering over the bifocals.  I have 1 teenager at home, and my day job is a computer programmer.  I have no allergies except MRI dye, nickel (easy on the jewelry stuff, folks) 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 saturated 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

This isn't a private swap, honestly, anyone else can jump in anytime.

I claim Dulcinea for something or somethings on her wist or inspired by her wist that I want to make to surprise her.  We'll see how the first one goes before I decide on the second one.  Smiley 

This is my first swap this round, I'm in Canada and I can't think of anything else to put on my list so if I stall again I am sorry!

Crafted Stuff

* My niece and I are making a "flower fairy" garden, so anything that fits this theme (fairy doors, crystals, wind chimes, fantastical flower creations, etc, etc.)
* 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).

* 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. -- thanks Dulcinea
* I guess my phone could use a little carry case/cozy too.  It's about yay-big.  If I knew where it was I'd measure it right this second, but I will get back to you on that.
* 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.
* 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?
* Carved or sculpted or decorated pull for my ceiling fan.  A little bird would be amazing.  I have to jump to reach it now too, so an extender chain would be great.

Supplies

* 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. 
* Crochet hook cushion grips or something to make my thread hooks easier to use.
* Knit klips!
* Anybody have a woodburning tool they don't use and would like to pass on? 


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!

I claim sunspotted for a woodburning tool that I no longer use, some glass marbles, ribbon, and some other things I'm sure I can find for her too Smiley

This is my first claim this round, 0 sent, 0 received

I'm Erica, live in Florida, and single mom to a 9 year old taekwondo master Wink I love all kinds of crafts, and like to try new things. I really like paper and needle crafts best, but want to try others.

Wishlist:

Crafted

*Fabric shopping bags
*Bento accessories (utensil holder, napkins, bag for bento stuff, bento straps) I like sakura themed (cherry blossom, pink, or flowery)
*handmade purse or bag
*Courage the Cowardly Dog softies (Courage, Muriel, Eustis, Katz, La Quack, the crazy inventor guy, any character from the show) If you need inspiration, I can find pics. (sewn only please)
*anne boleyn inspired items
*anything peacock, frogs or pigs
*a bedside caddy to hold things like my remote, glasses, and other misc.
*a nice,girly apron. Id like a full apron, since Im short and washing breakfast dishes in my work clothes ends up being a wet mess. PM for size J
*a reusable, fabric chore chart for my son. Something like this, only smaller: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=225603.0 something karate or taekwondo themed would be excellent!

*a crayon roll. I work for a daycare assistance organization, and kids are always wanting to color. Itd be nice to have a nice holder for the crayons for the kids to use instead of my highlighters. Wink
*Christmas fabric blocks- 6.5 (I want to make a Christmas quilt, but cant bring myself to splurge on the fabric for a quilt that would only be used once a year.)

I claim educharme for some ATC ephemera and handmade cards.
This is my first claim this round, I get 3.

About me: I am 28 and I'm in MI, USA, finally settled after 4 moves in less than 2 years! I'm currently running around like a crazy person, teaching English at a multicultural charter school, planning my wedding reception, trying to control my baby fever, and reading lots of books. I love chocolate, the ocean and the beach, books, live music, thrifting, vintage, shiny things, and soft things. Anyone who adds local ephemera, cool postage, or a local postcard to their package gets fun stuff back from me! More info in my blog - see my signature  Smiley

Wishes:
Crafted stuff:
- a fascinator in ivory to wear for my wedding (something I can attach to a birdcage veil, it can also incorporate a tiny bit of pale pink if you feel so inclined, as there is a tad of pink on my train)
- a pair of felt baby shoes for the little boy my BIL just had! He'll be almost 6 mos. when I meet him. Something funky for
- a fun skirt or dress for the spring... see my wists/blog or PM me
- a jumper! I love some of the jumpers I've seen around craftster... these are all fab!

PM me for sizing please!
- A necklace tree (I love all of the mini dress forms and stylized branches I've seen for hanging necklaces and would love one for my dresser!)
- An embellished scoop or low v-neck tee in ladies size medium with flourishes and swirls, or a cool phrase like anything inspired by my wists (lots of tees on it!)
- An apron, as I'm starting a fun collection. I have a few to inspire you on my wist, just please make sure it is machine washable.
- An anklet, maybe something fun and beaded or a little bit jingly
- A snap cup (you know, like in Legally Blonde 2?) for my classroom. I'd love a goblet that is fun and sparkly and says "Ms. Gallo's Snap Cup" to use in my class. I think my kids would love it!

Supplies:
- I am desperately hunting for any fabric in purple/yellow prints (think Amy Butlerish, Freshcut, floral styles, flourishes, any of that mock retro that you see everywhere now!)
- ribbon: yellow and purple solids or patterns, or any other fun patterend ribbon for altered art
- ink pads (Im in love with Tsukinek Dew Drops ink right now, but I have it in gold, silver, copper, and platinum)
- any issues of Crap Hound! http://www.boingboing.net/2005/07/24/crap-hound-seminal-c.html
- I love rubber stamps, especially travel, victorian, zetti, nature themes or fun unusual stuff. Also any stamps for backgrounds, feathers, clocks, buildings, flourishes, swirls, trees, florals, checks, patterns...
- Anything from or in the style of altered art supplies sold on http://www.artchixstudio.com/,  or http://www.skybluepink.com/ etc. I love bits and bobs, ephemera, all kinds of junk and things that I can turn into something artsy!
- Scrapbooking embellishments in wedding or travel themes

Extras:
- Whatever craft you have mastered is cool by me, surprise me! Also, I'd love anything inspired by anything I've wisted! Feel free to check my blog for ideas, sizing info, and my tastes.

**Please don't send me any junk food or candy; I have a wedding dress to get into!   Grin
