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 40.

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.

sunspotted - Will be your organizer, in charge of your claims, your sends and your receives, and your approval.
TwiztidBlood - Will be co-organizer, in charge of the discussion thread.

panthera is up for first claim

Quote
I'm in Streaky Bay, South Australia, late 20s, carer of 2 special needs children (Autism & A.D.H.D for those who are curious) as well as my partner who has an aquired brain injury, also have a cat, a dog and a baby wild cottontail rabbit. Life is busy and hectic at the best of times here, but we get through it 

I dabble in many different crafts, but don't do any of them consistently, except sewing.

I love to learn new things!.

I love the colours teal and chocolate brown

I love natural fibers such as hemp, cottons, canvas, calico and linen.

We are working on leading a simpler life this year as the price of things here in Australia is getting rediculous   , being self sufficient isn't a choice anymore it's a neccesity   





Crafts





A crochet hook roll with crochet hooks to get me started. THANKYOU addicted2knitting

Travel wallet


A tam (crocheted, preferably in rainbow hand dyed homespun (?) angora or similar soft wool)


I would love a pair of pure wool hand knitted socks (for my DH- shoe size 11)


1950s Happy Homemaker theme embroidered linen tea towel for decorative purposes. (I'd give to my nan for christmas she loves 1950's and pin-up)


Fabric wall/over door organiser


Anything from my wists --- Thankyou claire313!



Craft Supplies





Fat quarters - cotton, hemp, canvas, calico or linen of any color (except pastels and tan/yellows)- I'm a novice sewer trying to build a stash. ---  THANKYOU sunspotted!


Any interesting fabric, fabric scraps, colorful trims, colorful elastic or elastic thread, rickrack, bias tape...you get the idea :p --- THANKYOU sunspotted!


Polymer/Fimo clay kit and directions to get me started . . .


Pinking scissors/shears


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, Buttons etc) ---THANKYOU eightdandelions!


Altoid tins






Extras




Chocolate /candy (lollies)---(always appreciated) especially brands we don't see in Australia such as Hersheys e.t.c   





***** Thankyou in advance to anyone who claims me  *****

I've tried to just to put in only the things I need or would like to have, many of the things in bold I would either use or gift to family for christmas, our budget for presents this year isn't very big due to a looming recession over here

I'm in Streaky Bay, South Australia, late 20s, carer of 2 special needs children (Autism & A.D.H.D for those who are curious) as well as my partner who has an asthma and an aquired brain injury, also have a cat and a dog. Our furbabies they are spoilt rotten and I swear at times have almost human personalities Cheesy wouldn't give them up for the world.

Life is still busy and hectic at the best of times here, but we get through it.

I am allergic to common household dust, mold, floral strong perfumes, incence, cigarette smoke and pets (not to fussed about my pet allergies they aren't SEVERE, I have pets myself... just as long as any items sent aren't covered in pet hair I should be fine).... Poor quality wool is also a no no as it makes me itch and break out in either a nasty rash or at worst hives...

I dabble in many different crafts, but don't do any of them consistently, except sewing.

I would love a pair of pure wool hand knitted socks (for my DH- shoe size 11)

Fabric wall/over door organiser

Homemade reuseable cloth menstural pads....a woman can never have too many it's not as icky as people think you know in some ways they are more hygenic than your store bought disposables... Wink

A dressmakers measuring tape.....those flexible measuring taped people use to take waist measurements e.t.c mine has dissapeared into thin air, a spare one would be appreciated if anyone has a few just laying around collecting dust  Wink

An upholstery curved needle, I can't find one anywhere where I am. Embarrassed







No extras....that I can think of anyway... Cheesy





***** Thankyou in advance to anyone who claims me  *****
I've just put in only the things I need or would like to have....I even added a few more items to make claiming me a little easier... Grin

If I've stalled the swap just kick me  Wink

I claim panthera for fabric scraps and trims.


This is my 1st claim with 0 sent and 0 received.

My name is Mimi and I am in Maryland.  I dont have any allergies but I really dislike pastel colors.  I sew a bunch, play around with paints and adore stained glass.  I love the outdoors and all sorts of outdoor activities (camping, backpacking, climbing, and kayaking).  I am not a fan of lace or anything girl-y or frilly.  I love blues, greens and browns and red.  Anything natural or with a nature theme is always a hit with me!

We just moved to Maryland after living in the south all my life so winter-y goodness is appreciated as well!

I have a wonderful, sports-loving husband, 2 stepsons and a large, furry dog.  I am due with my first baby in just over 2 weeks  so baby stuff is good as well!

Crafts:

*2 very simple embroidered pillowcases for my guest room.  ritapizza made me some a few rounds ago but I have 2 guest rooms so I would love another set!

*Re-usable cloth pads

*Fun winter-y goodness: scarf, hat, mittens, gloves whatever!  I have a bunch of examples in my wists

*I LOVE, LOVE these trees!!!!

*Altered artwork There are lots of examples in my wists

*Pillow covers (I can get the middle part to save on shipping).  I have 3 naked couches that need some love!  Once again, examples in my wist.

*A Weasley clock like this except with my familys faces

*Embroidery shadowboxes similar to these

*An address book preferably one with refillable pages

*A patchwork skirt I have several in my wists
 
*This fun knit hat in blue and green (for a baby)

*A fun, painted wire basket like this

*A decorated airtight container to store my laundry detergent (it comes in a flimsy paper bag that always tears) Decoupaged/painted whatever

*A recipe card holder.  Maybe something like this

*A small idiot-proof scrapbook for my sons newborn pictures.  Seriously, it needs to be idiot-proof, like I just insert picturesI am hopeless at paper crafts

*Cloth Diapers!!!

*Anything inspired by my wists  

Supplies:

*Stamp carving kit

*Double Fold Extra Wide Bias Tape

*This bag pattern

*Alphabet Cookie Cutters

*Egg Molds anything except Hello Kitty

*Zippers

Extras

I am a chocolate freakactually, any candy for that matter!

I claim mimiw for:

2 very simple embroidered pillowcases

first claim ever! 0 sent, 0 delivered

I am Ronda and I live in Iowa, in the middle of the USA. I am new to this swap, but do swap a lot - I thought I would give this a whirl as it has always looked like fun!

I am an eclectic pagan, so please respect that when crafting for me. My hubby is a retired US Marine who works at a factory now and volunteers at the VFW more than he is home, LOL! Only one of my 6 kids still lives at home. The rest are out there in the world, fending for themselves for the most part, and I have some grandkids to boot, LOL!

I am pretty busy but do several crafts - jewelry making, embroidery and hand sewing, crocheting are the ones I am most familiar with but I do other crafts as well. I like dark colors, and jewel tones. My greatest non-crafty passion is for rocks, crystals and seashells! and chocolate  Roll Eyes

Before you claim me, check this list and make sure that you don't send me things on it, or that have been near things on it, as my allergies are serious business.

Sadly it is a long list of allergens - wool or dander from any herd animal, some laces and other natural fabrics, including hemp (silk or cotton is OK, linen is not), some acrylic blends if they have metal thread in them though poly/cotton seem to not be a problem, dairy, cigarette smoke, rodents (really, we had a rat and I was allergic to the poor baby), aloe, anything floral, pine scent and pollen, molds, most soaps and detergents, anything Avon, most make up, all metals except sterling silver, and some stones because they have metal in them - I can have them just can't wear them in jewelry, adhesives (like on band aids but also some crafting glues - they are usually OK if they are dry, and I don't come into contact with them wet), there is more - just ask and I will let you know if it is an issue

this is how serious it is - I went into anaphylactic shock twice over the hypoallergenic laundry soap the hospital used last time I had surgery, faint traces of cigarette smoke on something can make me sick for a week despite taking two sorts of allergy pills every day, and breathing in wool fibers has sent me to the ER.

I am NOT allergic to cats, dogs, birds or dust.

I also talk too much...  did you notice?

OK - now that I have scared away all potential partners...

this is my wish list:

Crafts
large tote bags, for sorting and storing supplies or WIPs, that can hold a lot of weight

a lap quilt would be awesome and doesn't have to be fancy ( I know that is probably a reach)

knitted scarves similar to any on my wists or profile or pick your own pattern - I am enamoured of scarves, and cheap to make for as you can use Red Heart Super Saver and I will be happy and safe!

I like mittens too...  Roll Eyes

T-shirts for me (mens XXXL as I am a big girl) with crafty things on them, or dragons, or dragonflies, or something you think I would like - that I can wear at craft shows

a hoodie or T-shirt for my daughter, size med or large, black and pink or white and black - sortof emo/goth/punk - reconstructed is awesome - happy bunny, anime, a kitty cat, totoro, or anything Japanese-ish - her nickname is little kitty

something for the hubby with the marine corp emblem or the VFW emblem or any generic patriotic theme in/on it (coffee cup, storage container, T-shirt in XXL mens, notecards, whatever), or the University of Iowa Hawkeyes gold and black football team emblem/colors  Roll Eyes

poly clay dragons, about 3 to 4 inches - there is one on my wists that I have and would like more similar to him, in all the colors of the rainbow except I have a white one, a green one and a black one already:
http://www.wists.com/RondaS/8a0774796dc3bdba6ee814635e9940ce?offset=0

fabric covered boxes like on my profile (there is a tute)

wooden boxes in a variety of sizes - painted, stained, decorated, whatever

soft fabric drawstring bags made of cotton or other natural fabric (other than those I am allergic to) about 3 by 5 inches in size or so, or larger

a thing that will hold a book up and open and let me have my hands free while sitting at a table or desk working

Craft Supplies

any 4mm round stone beads
strands of stone chips in greens, yellows, reds or browns

stamped embroidery pillowcases for me to embroider on and embelish
embroidery floss in any color

small containers that are safe for pouring and burning candles in

Extras
tumbled stones or crystals

any stone or crystal spheres that are 20mm to 30mm in size

chocolate  Wink

have a great time!

Ronda
Blessings!

I claim Missmuffcake for stuff for her kitchen and maybe something else Smiley
this is my 1st claim, 0 sent, 0 rec'd

hi! Im Val from MS (USA). I have one wonderful hubby, one kiddo (girl age 3), and one very spoiled yorkie.

I have cystic fibrosis & epilepsy with a tendency for migraines and lots of allergies, so I have to be careful with my lungs and my skin is sensitive too- My Main allergies are: asbestos, smoke, cats (long as the items you send me are washable/wipe off-able where cat hair/dander can be removed it should be ok with the cats, but not smoke and the others listed), perfumes (trigger migraines), aloe, Pine, cedar, and wool. I wont even bother listing my food allergies (too many!)
If I get lucky and get any jewelry items, the necklace parts (other than beads and stuff naturally) should be of sterling (sterling Overlay is OK too) or made on string with a sterling (or overlay) clasp as the artificial stuff directly on my skin bothers me


I love to craft! I sew, embroider, crochet (simple stuff), paint and make stuff out of beads and wire.
I also adore fabrics, buttons, cameos, antiques, dolls, birds,necklaces, bracelets, and blues, corals, browns, greens,  and most all colors other than neon and not skull prints and the like (just isnt my thing ) and I love to read.
I LOVE to wear jewelry but not earrings.
Id have to say my style is funky vintage Victorian and classic all rolled up into one.

Now if I havent managed to scare everyone off Roll Eyes
