Happy Birthday! I live in Northern Virginia and my birthday is New Year's Eve, so everybody parties for my birthday. I am turning 28. My favoritest craft at the moment is knitting. But I can sew and I've etched glass. I bake and I play a lot of Nintendo. My favorite videogame series is The Legend of Zelda, but I also like Mario a lot. I like trying new crafts, but mostly only make things for others. Typical right?

Crafted Items:
  • My wists has a lot of stuff on it that I would love to have. http://wists.com/epic1313
  • I recently moved in with my boyfriend, so wall art would be good. We have a space above our video game consoles that I would love a nintendo-related piece of art for. I can measure if interested. Shocked)
  • Any type of market bags. I like knit, crochet cotton ones, but cloth would be cool too. Recycled would be even better. Thank you javastain!
  • A roll for my knitting needles. I have crochet hooks too, even though I don't know how to use them yet. Something to organize the needles would be great though. I like the one fishie has on hers, http://farm1.static.flickr.com/167/403789592_b727719bfd.jpg.
  • Jewelry. I like rings, necklaces, bracelets but don't have pierced ears (except a hoop up in my cartilage that could use replacing Shocked) )
  • I would love a hat/scarf/gloves set. I know that's not a medium, but one of the three would be great too. I have knit everyone in my life a scarf, but have yet to knit myself one.
  • I love this guy's apron http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=viewImage&friendID=151607125&albumID=0&imageID=4555723
  • this shirt is pretty fabulous http://spriteshirts.blogspot.com/2008/05/zelda-ii.html. Or something like it.
  • I could use some oven mitts
  • Also, I have ties from my granddad I would love made into a pillow. I can send them to you for you to make. It's one of those projects I want to do, but haven't been able to start. Thank you cocorific!!!
  • Handmade soaps Thank you SevsOnlyGirl!
  • A surprise!  Grin  Thank you javastain!!!

Craft supplies:
  • I like making cards, so papers or stamps or anything fun.
  • Yarn. I've never used handspun before, so that would be awesome.
  • Knitting needles. Most of mine came from my grandma and and bent plastic. I like metal and bamboo.
  • A crochet teaching kit. I have all the hooks, just no clue where to start.
  • A tatting teaching kit. I have a shuttle and the floss, but no clue where to start.
  • Knitting book or magazines.
  • Stitch markers. I've never had any, but think they would come in handy


Extras:
I love sugar! Candy corn, chocolate, cookies. I am addicted.

Happy birthday guys! I'm Poppy and I'm an art and fashion student from Birmingham, UK. I collect 20th Century vintage. I love art deco stuff, and curiosities like skulls and old inventions. I wont rule out a colour if its appropriate, but im not fond of neons or sludgy colours like yellowy or greeny browns. I know im a little far away for a lot of you but dont worry.. I'm a jolly girl who totally understands slow postal mail and the like!

I'm 18 on the 31st December. It's a big'un for me, I'm gonna be an adult... argh!! Having a birthday in December can be a little sad at times because between christmas and the new year I can and have been forgotten. Then again, there's always a party come night-time!

Here's my list. I'd like to start by saying that i'll love and appreciate anything you send, whether its something you're really good at or a thoughtful card. My favourite thing about craftster is the people, and I love chatting to the like-minded, friendly people I swap with all over the world!

CRAFTED ITEMS

First of all, surprise me! Cheesy There's loads to see on my wist if you want ideas- www.wists.com/carnabystreet. My profile also has some ideas.

Im a sucker for necklaces with my name on them! Can be made any way. I especially adore all these ones- http://www.ladyluckrulesok.com/index.php?cPath=72_75

Something with a dia de los muertos/vintage halloween/art deco/art nouveau/anatomical skulls/skeletons/B-movie/ flapper girl/pin-up girl/japanese kawaii theme would be amazing.

I'd LOVE an atc/postcard clock like the one here. Plain black if possible, but i'm not really fussy Smiley http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=267288.0

I have somehow found myself without nightwear! It is a shocking predicament. I'd love a cool (not granny-like!) nightwear set (pyjamas,a long shirt, camisole or whatever), made or customised in a vintage style. I'm getting cold! Cheesy

Crocheted bases for hair pieces. A small (4inches-ish) crochet circle with abit of weight to it to use in fascinators. Imagine the base of this but in crochet- http://www.lucky-ltd.com/proimage/xiugai/big/p1010016.jpg
In bright, jewel colours like red and bright blue, or black. I'd be really greatful for this!

A hat using this pattern- http://www.knitty.com/issuesummer07/PATTmarnier.html 
would be fabulous. In black 

A pair of these gloves would also be amazing-  http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall08/PATTtatiana.html

A bag with cheesy 70's lips appliqued on. Any style, any fabric..have a go! Heres where I got the idea from, grr..wish i'd bought this bag...
http://www.wists.com/carnabystreet/141444d6f9155742d4a1a2ce58d8a3c4?offset=80
 


A knitted wig using this pattern in black, would be so cool!! http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATThallowig.html

A bag/ purse with a big bow like this-
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=278214.0

A jewelry box/t shirt with the biba logo on it somehow- http://j9marshall.files.wordpress.com/2008/01/biba.jpg

Amigurumi, especially animals/food with faces/ halloween related cuteness.
A piece of jewelry that uses old or old-looking doll parts somehow, something sophisticated. Any materials can be used. Along these lines- http://www.wists.com/carnabystreet/40a666cc3e4fb6cafd34249686514447?offset=20

A needle felted/ felt stuffie/ crocheted replica of my dog, a small terrier. Can send pics!

A t shirt with the andy warhol banana on it. This can be done any way, but i thought an applique could be cool.

A Necklace made with knitted chain links, like this- http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_gallery_10&listing_id=16983136

A bag that uses old records in it for structure somehow. Ive seen these on craftster before.

A charm bracelet based on anything I have so far mentioned, using shrinky dink perhaps?


SUPPLIES

Fake cherries or other small fruit, plastic would be perfect.

Vintage gumball-type plastic charms

Shrinkydink

Alexander henry fabric or similar (cute/retro designs)

Japanese felt craft books/fashion magazines

Any pretty peacock/ostrich feathers I could use in hatmaking

Kawaii fabric/felt toy patterns

Realistic, leopard print, black, red or brown fake fur.

Vintage dress patterns, especially dresses and jumpsuits. 60s and 70s.

60's/70's fashion magazines or cool ephemera

Material covered in same size and same colour sequins. Any colour would be fab!

contemporary fashion/craft magazines and books from your country.

EXTRAS

I always love a pretty handmade card.
Sweets, chocolate, candy, biscuits, cake etc etc.. from different countries especially. Me and my bf would sure love a feast! Cheesy
Anything you think I might like!

Thankyou to whoever picks me Cheesy

Hoppy Birthday!
I'm luana.  I live in KS.  I'll be 40something on 12/27.  Mom to 4 (none at home) and Gram to an adorable little boy.
I love crafting and am the queen of glue.  I also sew a little and do some jewelry. I read A LOT.  I have 6 very spoiled cats.   
I love cats, big cats, horses, unicorns, zebras and of course frogs.   I prefer to wear black or leopard print (any wild animal print really). 
I seem to be becoming allergic to the world so please no bath products, jewelry or candles (Cinnamon or vanilla candles are OK but I have a tendency to forget and leave them burning).
I don't really cook and haven't even hooked up my stove.
I have an odd sense of humor and I like things like LOL cats, twisted whiskers, and other off the wall stuff.
I recycle so re purposed items are cool.


CRAFTS:

A scoody in leopard, tiger, or zebra print.     Thanks SugarySweet!           http://www.wists.com/bronzfrog/search/leopard/99eda9fe2f59673cee9dbec7b7382018

A dead cat bag.  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=31718.0

Amigurumi.  I have some on my wist.

I have received some washcloths with frogs on them in some swaps and they are too cool to use.  I figure if I get some more I can make a blanket.

A shopping bag.  I have made tons for others but have yet to make one for myself.   http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177482.0

A monster purse.  Big enough for my laptop would be cool but it would be fun to have one for a purse.  I like black, orange or leopard print.   http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=119896.0

I always take a large totebag to work as I cart a lot of stuff around.   I like to change them out on occasion.

My living room is decorated with big cats and zebras.  So artwork, frames with wild animal print, or knick knacks are good.

Cowboy or horse artwork is cool.

My spoiled brats LOVE cat toys.

Swiffer cover. 
 http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=238637.0

My daughter is a December baby too.   (She just tured 13)  She is into the whole duct tape thing so something out of duct tape for her would be cool.


Anything from my wist.  http://www.wists.com/bronzfrog


SUPPLIES:

I can always use more fabric.  Especially now that I have to go to the city to get fabric.  Ikea fabric would be cool as we don't have one near here.

Zippers.  One day I will get some purses made.

My birthday is December 2. I turned 42 this year. I live in MI with my hubby, daughter & fur babies.
I like earth tones, sage green (it's nearish the color of my eyes) autumn colors, purple. Brown with blues, brown with sage green, brown with pink. Most colors just no primary colors. I'm very pale so they just don't look right on or near me.
I like to sew, embroider, bead, read & cook. I collect cookbooks and read them like novels.

I'm Dawn from Michigan - mid-Michigan if you're familiar with it. Smiley  I'll be 42 on December 26th, that seems to be a popular day for this thread!   Let's get allergies out of the way first - I have slight asthma and am very very allergic to cigarette smoke and some dogs.  I have 2 children (ages 13 & 7), a hubby of 9 years and 1 long haired princess cat.  I'm a Student Life Coordinator by day.  I like all kinds of music and art, but am very picky on my choices in people. Wink  I tend to like books about vampires/werewolves/etc but mostly in modern times and in a fashion that seems more realistic, like the Kim Harrison books.  Enough about me, let's get to the list!

Crafted Items

Handmade Soap - I tend to citrus scents
Wrap Skirt - pm for measurements
stenciled hoodie -something with Kim Harrison characters would be fantastic!
embroidered pillowcases - nature themed
purses - all kinds and sizes
jewelry - I love all kinds - necklaces all lengths, bracelets, earrings, pins...
scoodie


Supplies

thread - all colors are good, I'm always in need of black, white, beige
hand sewing needles - hubby used mine to hang pictures, it works great but
                               now I'm short on needles!
paint for canvas or fabric
hoodies - all sizes/colors for painting on

Extras

Books - I can give you ideas on these if needed
Candies - I prefer dark chocolate and sour over sweet
Something from your area

Here's my stalkable links:
Wists
MySpace

Thanks to anyone that chooses me!  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to pm me!

Hi ladies! I got approved a few days ago- but it's finals week at school and to say I have been busy is a major understatement. Im soooo looking forward to the holiday break to have a breather from school work! lol. Anywho-
My name is Dawn and I just turned 37 on the 2nd. I still cant belive it as it seems like yesterday that I was 29, Cliche I know but oh so true! Well a bit about me: I am an artist and am attending Mary Baldwin College to pursue my degree in Painting. My minor is in Art education so I eventually have plans to teach art. I love art- it just makes me so happy!
Well I could babble on forever but I will post my list to spare you all from ultimate boredom! hee hee

* A store bought(you dont have to sew me one!lol) hoodie with something like this embroidered on it would be super sweet. Doesnt have to be as fancy- just an example.http://www.embroiderydesigns.com/productdetails/And+Sew+On+Embroidery/1/buddha.aspx I dont care what colors but would like the thread to contrast with the fabric to make the design stand out. :-)
Felted or Fabric Cuffs -examples of the felted ones can be viewed here.http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=79198.0
*A bag(storebought fine!) with Cherry Blossoms and birds embroidered on it to tote knitting supplies in :-)
* Embroidered Bird & Cherry blossom art ( Something you embroider that I can frame & put in my kitchen)
* Knit or Croched neckwarmer (would love something in jewel tones or neutrals)
* Owl or Penguin something I can wear. Suprise me.
* Bloo Mittens like these- I love the knit ones however they can be made out of fleece or something- if that makes it easier ;-) http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=81651.0 Id love a pair of these to wear!
* A pokemon hat for my infatuated teenage daughter - either a pikachu or the poke' master ball one would be sooperdeedooper.
*I would ADORE the shark hat or viking chicken hat here on Craftster (in my profile)
*Sunny Side Up crocheted egg scarf
*Unique Blank Journals for art journaling/sketching., Micron pens variety of widths.
*Art Supply Store Gift Certificates *dickblick.com, jerryartarama.com, pearlpaint.com* 
* Stuff from my WIST list http://www.wists.com/Elphalba some is outdated so you might want to ask first :-)
* If you specialize in Jewelry I would just love a Statement piece. Something special I can wear that yells "Here I am!" :-) Suprise me!
*Handspun or speciality yarns or fibers.(soft ones) Say, Enough to knit a claptois :-)
*
Smaller Goodies and knick knacks


*Funky Toe Socks
*Abba Zabba candy Bars which they dont sell here on the East Coast. They are White taffy and filled w/ Peanut Butter. The come in a yellow and black checkerboard wrapper that looks like a NYC taxicab. These are my fave candy in the whole wide world.
*Jasmine oolong teas- any jasmine tea really:-)
* earrings, necklace, brooch, etc. Again suprise me!
Thanks in advance!
Hugs
Tiegan

hi craftster! i've missed you!!


View Profile WWW available for personal swaps
« Reply #17 on: December 16, 2008 11:45:18 PM »

hi! i'm amy, my birthday is december 22, and i'll be 27. i live in british columbia, canada, with my family and 5 kitties - 3 family cats, my sister's cat, who is sadly going to a new home in early january because he's a bit of a loveable jerk, and my baby, sofie-bean. i've been sick, so i'm a bit late posting my list!

i do lots of different crafting, but sewing has always been my first love! i also do papercrafts (they're a close second), lots of embroidery (both machine and hand), recently some cross stitch, some crochet, though i haven't picked up a hook in over a year, random other stuff. i like dark colours for clothing, lots of black with pops of vibrant other colours like cherry red or royal purple. my bedroom is aubergine and black, my studio is neon pink, and my bathroom is bright blue !  i love colour, though i don't like browns and oranges or pastels. i love stars, anatomical hearts, typewriters, crows and magpies, chandeliers, owls, wooden grain elevators, cupcakes, nesting dolls, cuckoo clocks and catholic imagery like sacred hearts, rosaries, the virgin mary and lady of guadalupe (no jesus please!). my favourite patterns are thin stripes, polka dots, leopard print in any colour but brown, zebra print, pinstripes and herringbone. my style's kind of a gothy glam, but i also adore kitsch and vintage stuff!

ALLERGIES! i am super allergic to scented stuff. please please don't febreeze things or mail them with a dryer sheet for freshness! any sort of fake flower, fruit or "nature" scent will give me a massive headache. thank you!

stalking!
my info post for swap partners
my wists ( i know my wists is kind of ridiculous. i'm sorry! but i do use tags quite obsessively!)
my craft blog

crafted stuff -
- funky cross stitch patterns! purchased or ones you've made using PCstitch, either is cool! it's hard to find interesting ones that aren't country or cutesy.
- i absoluely adore this knitted heart with wings! i'm not a mom, but luckily my name only has 3 three letters in it!
- i have a totally kick ass newsboy hat crocheted out of cotton yarn, and i love it and wear it constantly. i'd love another like it, either knit, crochet of fabric. i have a big head though, you might want to PM me for measurements!
- i'd love any sort of shrine!
- anything francesca lia block inspired. i absolutely love her books, especially the weetzie bat series. i have a doll that jan_on_ice made me that sits with my books, i'd love something else to sit with it!
- surprise me! something from my wists perhaps?
- a biggish tote bag, straps 22"+
- a messenger bag (i never seem to get around to making bags for myself!)
- slippers, knit, crochet, fabric whatever. i love all the ballet flat or maryjane style ones i've been seeing lately. these ones are fabulous!
- chunky pages for my chunky book! the ones on the swap were art and creativity themed, so it would be cool to get more with that theme.
- skirts! i love skirts, i wear them all the time over tights. funky fabrics, interesting appliques, ruffles, whatever! i prefer knee length skirts with elastic waists, PM me for measurements!
- typewriter art or stuffy! there's a ton of typewriter stuff in my wists.
- artwork of any kind (collage, print, etc!) again, tons of links in my wists!
- interesting pendants. i like chunky ones! i have a choker that i wear all the time and just switch the pendants back and forth, more variety would be fab!   
- a doll, in a similar style to these ones. devout dolls, spookbot and the dollings, jenny bird art dolls
- knit cuffs like these in black and grey or red or blue or something! i have one that emilyflew made me in red and black and i'd love more!
- a poppet! i bought all the stuff ages ago, but i've never been able to get my butt in gear to make one! i'd love a slightly gothy poppet!
- i ADORE these wreaths, but i know they're a TON of work!
- fingerless gloves of some sort, knit, crochet, fabric, whatever! cotton would be best... please no fleece if they're sewn, it kills my hands!


craft supplies- i really don't need much, my studio is overflowing already! but these are things i'd always love to have more of!
- covered button kits, the kind that need hammering (i can never get the others to stay Tongue)
- vintage buttons, especially the big ones!
- vintage sewing supplies of all sorts, actually!
- sublime stitching patterns that i don't already have. i'm going to post a list on my blog, but in the meantime, please PM me. i'm trying to collect them all eventually.
- i am DESPERATELY searching for alexander henry "counting crows" fabric. it came out in 2004, and i can't find it anywhere now. tanzie made me a pillow with it in the bird swap and i really want to make the rest of my bedding set match! i have one yard, which i'm hoarding until i can find more. any piece over 8" will help!
- dissolving or iron on stabilizers! i have tons of tear away, but i can't find a good source for the dissolving, and i've never tried iron on before.
- handspun yarn, either enough to crochet something small, or short lengths that i can use in papercrafts. i love the stuff with the thick and thin slubs in it!
- old maps, photos, cards, etc that i can use for artwork. i can never have enough ephemera!


extras-
- i collect snowglobes, so i'd love to get one from you! i love the cheapo plastic dome shaped ones, full of kitschy love!
- on the off chance that you have a vintage pyrex bowl in the snowflake pattern.... just thought i'd mention it! Wink 
- i'm not super into chocolate, esp US chocolate (sorry!) but i do like milk chocolate! and sour candies are always good too!
