I claim Therisa for Islamic prayer beads this is my 1st claim with 0 sent and 0 received.

Hi, I'm a 25 year old pre-school teacher. Living the land of two seasons; Hot hot hot and Freezing cold (aka Southern California USA). I desperately miss Oregon and Washington and would love anything to remind me of living up there (I especially miss the rain). I love coffee, sushi, coconut, and my favorite colors are green, purple, and earthy tones. I am not a fan of pink or yellow. My husband and I both embrace our Finnish heritage and have a strange recurring cow theme in our relationship, so any Finland or cow related items would be great!

I have no allergies unless you plan on sending me preserved pork. Oh, and I do not have pierced ears, so no earrings please!


Wishes! (biggest wishes in bold)

Crafted:
~ Anything from/inspired by my wist (I've been adding new things) http://www.wists.com/Kartiana
~ Handmade soap or lotion in any of the following scents:
   Coffee
   Coconut

~ Coffee themed anything
~ Cow themed anything (preferably for my kitchen)
~ Etched shot glasses
~ Green bracelet(s)
~ Dragonfly jewelry (no earrings)
~ Head bands or clips (I only wear one clip at a time, so no need for matching sets, though I do usually only wear clips on the right side of my head, so any clips with an up/down should be made accordingly)
~ Spider-man hair clips (see above)
~ Old or foreign coin necklace like these http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=92710
~ A remote control holder, one that hangs over the arm of a couch. We have three remotes that need a good home. Also wouldn't mind a bonus pocket for an X-Box controller. The arm of our couch is prety wide so I will have to measure it. Also it is tan and we have mossish green accents in our living room.
~ Grey Totoro plushie (not too big)
~ Ties, like for a men's suit but made for a woman (me), in green, black, or just about any color other than pink and yellow

   Flag - http://www.worldatlas.com/webimage/flags/countrys/europe/finland.htm
   Hyv piv! = Good day!
~ Joulupukki (Santa in Finnish) X-mas ornament would be awesome!
~ "Hauskaa Joulua" (Merry Christmas in Finnish) Ornament
~ A trash receptacle for my living room
~ I like the idea of this "cow pie" art, but this one is too country for my tastes... http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_gallery_10&listing_id=9257644 I would love something similar with more of a cute theme (check out my wist for ideas on my style)
~ Ruffly undies
~ Wrap pants! I would love a pair in flannel or something else that is soft and comfy. I will use these to lounge around on lazy days so color/print is not a huge issue, just no yellow please! Tutorial: http://laupre.wordpress.com/2008/06/29/easy-breezy-wrap-pants-tutorial/

Supplies (used is fine for any of these):
~ Fabric (cute prints, love flannel. I also have some fabrics wisted to get an idea of what I like) any size
~ t-shirts for recons
~ Spider-man t-shirts (child sized and used is ok)
~ Ribbon
~Sewing patterns:
       Tank top pattern in my size (36 bust)
       This pattern or similar http://www.wists.com/Kartiana/4564c23b5758ee7b6571600db1d7bc41?offset=60
~ Elastic
~ Cotton batting (scraps are fine, as long as they are big enough to make a potholder I will take them)

~ The yarn needed to make this: http://www.angelfire.com/tx5/angelcrafts/patterns/spidermanroundrippleafghan.html (14 oz Red Heart #0319 Cherry Red, 14 oz Red Heart #0866 Blue, 1 skein Red Heart Black) As long as it is red, blue, and black I'm not picky on brand, although I would prefer cotton yarn or other natural fiber over acrylic.

Extras:
~ Seattle's Best coffee
~ Chocolate covered coffee beans (yum! You would be my friend forever!)
~ Postcards/photographs of Oregon/Washington (or similar green places)
~ Antique keys

Hello! I claim Therisa for Islamic Prayer Beads

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

My name is Claire and I live in New Jersey. I'm a vegetarian, I do yoga, LOVE animals (especially cats), and anything hippie/indie. My favorite colors are blue, orange, teal and purple and I like every kind of fabric EXCEPT velvet (EEP! gives me the willies). Anything else you would like to know about me, PM away!

Crafts I would like:
- Stuffies! Cats, rabbits, cupcakes - any color
- Cotton Kimono-style bathrobe (i'm pretty small - PM if you need sizes) any color, print
- Knitted animal or vegetable
- Pencil Skirt (work appropriate, if possible!) - PM for size
- Funky jewelry (vintage, indie) handmade or otherwise
- Large purse - perhaps owl, bird pattern
- Yoga pants (any color - PM for size)

Supplies:
- Buttons - any size, color
- Glass beads - any size, color
- Orange wooden beads
- Old stamps with interesting themes
- Microscope slides
- Shrinky Dink plastic
- Cool fabric - I just started getting into sewing so my supplies are rather limited

Extras:
- Old post cards
- Cool picture frames in cool colors/shapes
- Vegetarian cookbooks
- Old maps! Italy, Portugal, any city from around the world
- Jar of randomness... I've seen some very cool "whimsy jars" around and I just love the idea of getting a jar filled with bits of wonderfulness (i.e. beads, charms, etc)

Anything you can think of that might relate to the lists above would be super too

Thanks to whoever picks me! Cheesy

Hi! I claim Claire for some funky jewelry!

first claim this round

About me I'm a 6 foot tall, 34 5 (oops) y.o. living in Hollywood.

Allergies - no patchouli, sandal wood, nag champa (not actually allergic to these, but they make my nose run horribly), If you send me food stuff, I don't eat mammals but I'm not a vegetarian. My S.O. is allergic to cats - but if you're careful and/or wash & clean thoroughly before sending , he'll be ok. On another food note - I'm allergic to blue food coloring, yes, just blue. If you send me anything that has a scent, I prefer citrus over any other smells.

Things I love: dogs, computers, technology, the internet, circuit board patterns, sci-fi, anime - anything Japanese really but especially hello kitty and san-x, dragon flies, the subway, hummingbirds, hearts, cherry blossoms, bikes

My favorite clothing designers = Oakley & Diesel
Dress wise, I do conservative but hip for work (I work at an internet company so I can't dress too stuffy). I'm a t-shirt and jeans girl at home. I love the idea of high heel tennis shoes

Favorite colors: Cobalt Blue (any blue really as long as it doesn't look turquoise or aqua), Pink, Khaki Green, Red, Orange.

Yuck colors: I hate aquamarine, yellow, and turquoise - I don't really hate yellow, but it hates me. I don't like gold toned metals either.

Please package whatever you send me in the smallest box, envelope, whatever as possible because I have a TINY mail box. My mail man, while being very nice, invariably wakes my husband up with my swap packages.

Oh and NO Disney related stuff!

On To The List -

big wishes in red and bold

Wearable Stuff:

If you plan to make me any wearable stuff, please PM me for measurements.
1. a stencilled shirt with an art nouveau style pattern - Women's Medium Please - but must be stretchy as I'm kinda curvy (and long-ish 'cause I'm tall)
2. ANY of the 5 gajillion sweaters or shrugs on my wists (will send you measurements)
3. simple a-line skirt knee length (will send you measurements)
4. Bloomers or bike shorts to wear with skirts while riding my bike.

Jewelry:

1. Any piece of jewelry on my wists
2. Any jewelry inspired by something on my wists
3. A long loopy necklace with a collection of beads in blues or pinks. (a pink version would be a gift for my friend)

Other Crafty Stuff:

1. Katamari Ball - pin cushion or crocheted magnetic thing. Naaaah na na na na na Kata Mari DAHH MACCYY (there is an example on my wists)
2. Orange purse with LOTS of pockets - I carry alot o' schtuffs around with me. (canvas or vinyl) Will send you pocket requirements, etc. if you choose this one.
3. amigurumi cuteness animals, plants, food with faces to join the rest of the stuffies in my cube. (take a look at my previous posts - I have a picture of all of them together posted on this gallery) - Thank you MandyLikesPie for the puppy and cactus & Miss moppet for my coffee cup - but no girl can have too many stuffed animals!
5. Your ATC's or ATC style artwork that I can hang in my cube at work (fairly small scale)
6. a pop art style painting of my German Shepherd in blues or reds (I will provide photos, small scale as this will probably be on my desk at home or work)
7. A very simple lap quilt and/or pillow that I can keep at the office (can be fleece or whatever, not picky) with a Tinker Bell or Jessica Rabbit embroidered or stenciled on it this is the only wish Im lifting the Disney ban on.
8. Anything with a sewing machine or crochet hooks on it
9. Very simple necklace and earring holder. Black, teak, or maple are the best colors for me. like this one (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9201717)
10. Passport holder!! BIG WISH!! preferably with an "anti skimming" lining

11. re-usable sandwich wrappers & lunch bag (you know the ones made of fabric with a plastic lining to replace sandwich bags) Would LOVE if they had a circuit board pattern or ANY fabric from my wists.

Supplies:

1.. Fabric a yard is preferable, but I'm not picky! (see my wists for the types of fabrics I like doesnt have to be those exactly, just use those as a guideline when going through your stash) scratching this one this round since my machine is busted Sad
2. Instructions on how to adjust timing on a singer 4803 machine - pictures and what not on how to get in it and make the adjustments myself instead of taking it to a shop. (hee hee - see above)
3. Vintage Buttons preferably from 30s to 60s any size, any color
4. Sterling silver findings for jewelry making
5. Felt squares, any color, wool or polyester
6. half inch round circle hole punch
7. wacky shaped hole punch
8. Plain card stock in a variety of colors
9. Paint markers any color I used to love these things and I cant find them anywhere near me.
10. ring blanks
11. Bails for necklaces - the little loopy things that you glue on the back of a pendant...does that make sense?
12. handles for a fat bottom bag in bamboo or black.

While I prefer crafted stuff any of these would be appreciated as extras or what not:

1. Hello Kitty anything
3. San-X - Mr. Cold stuff would AWESOME
4. anything from meomi.com
7. any book on my wists (pre-loved is totally fine!)
8. Throw in a few of the business cards for your online shop (if you have one) so I can give them to people who appreciate what you made for me  Smiley
9. "Mind the Gap" swag from London underground or any Tokyo Metro/JR lines swag (I have maps of both subway systems already). 

And.

Im always up for a crafted surprise from the wists I think I like these wishes more sometimes  Grin you people are so creative!! (anything that says "thank you" in the title I've already received).
