I claim FeastYourEyes for some pendants.
This is my first claim this round of three allowed, zero sent, zero received.

Toddler Bonnet http://madebypetchy.blogspot.com/2008/06/free-pattern-toddler-hatbonnet.html for either my two year old (red and/or black or with Thomas fabrics) or my four year old (purple, black, pink or pretty much any color out there).  We would like the lining to be flannel or fleece or minkee as it gets a wee bit cold up here.

A pendant making kit (for the eldest, she loves making these) like this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15000148 or this http://www.makeandtakes.com/links/scrabble-tile-pendant-tutorial or this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14928442

I never thought I would be saying this (as our middle child was toilet trained at just over a year and our oldest came to us at 4) but cloth diapers to fit a two year old (30 pounds, currently is in a size 4/5 diaper size 3t underpants/pants as he outgrew all but a couple pairs of training pants).  Our two year old just isn't interested in toilet training.

Some fingerless mitts for me in supersoft yarn that isn't aryclic.  Blues, greens, browns, or grays would be great.

Knit legwarmers (these are for my sister).  She is on the tallish size and would like some in a non itchy yarn (preferably pink but I think anything but oranges would be fine) that would go to her knees (she is 5'11"). 

The Bella Mittens http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=280787.0

Anything from/inspired by my wist: http://www.wists.com/girlosun_9 and there are a lot of ideas here, please feel free to craft something you would like to craft!

Pendants-->there are many examples of my likes on my wist

This neckalce http://www.beadingdaily.com/blogs/projects/archive/2008/08/01/cerulean-falls.aspx  love the colors and design

And this is beyond huge but a person can wish: spaceship http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=66029 Even better would be the pattern modified/used as inspiration for making a a hollow train with figures to go inside.

Handthrown cups/mugs for tea/coffee. 

Supplies:
A dog biscuit (bone) shaped cutter. 

A dancing rain doll kit-->16" Friendship Doll Kit, Girl, Light Skin, Straight Sandy Hair, Blue Eyes  http://www.dancingraindolls.com/friendshipkits.html

Linen→Used or Thrifted pretty much any color

Anything from/inspired by my wist

linen double fold bias tape at least a 1/2 inch

This book: http://www.wists.com/girlosun_9/753398958c6c6e4cb03913244ef4496a?offset=0 and/or this book: http://www.wists.com/girlosun_9/b8974c3e225ac7063521e633cda75ac7?offset=0 but, in all honesty, any japanese simple outfits for kids (boy asked 2 but wearing 3t clothing, girl aged 4 but wearing 6 clothing, and older girl aged 11 wearing size 10 clothing).

The pattern for these wrist warmers: http://www.wists.com/girlosun_9/9c53185bf63a0eb003152dc3417c3563?offset=0

Diamond Glaze

Scrabble Tiles

Nice Yarn (not fun fur or acrylic or itchy wool)

Jumping right in, I'm claiming KittyVegas for -tree of life pendant (with purple stones) Trees are my specialty! Cheesy

About Me
Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. My favorite colors are jewel tones like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber. I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.) My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy. I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together. My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes. I love to read, I enjoy photography and I love all things Disney!

ALLERGIES
I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.


Crafts
 -- Something stained glass. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself.

 -- A robe like this one. Unfortunately, it's off their site so I don't have a larger image, but it's just so lovely and I desperately need a robe. (3/4 length or long-sleeves, and mid-length overall. Not too short, not too long. I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

 -- An apron like this or this  or liks this especially if it were in teal blue and chocolate brown colors. (Or used like cute owl fabric or such.) I wear a US size 4 or can send measurements if need be.

 -- Anything with a phoenix on it. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items here as inspiration.

 -- This scarf in these exact colors. I think this is one of the most perfect things ever. I don't really need scarves as a rule because I live in Florida, but I'd find reasons to wear one like this!

 -- A tote like this one. I love everything about it from the colors, fabric to the pattern.

 -- A weekender bag like Amy Butler's style. There are some tips here as well. It could be in different fabrics though. (Maybe brown/blue?) It's just too challenging of a project for me!

 -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft (no wool please because it itches me) I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. (HUGE bonus if it's argyle pattern. I don't know why but I love argyle.)

 -- Yoga pants! (examples: like this or this) Roomy, 3/4 length or floor length (30" inseam) comfy, soft, not too tight on the waist. I lounge in them on my days off and I just love 'em. (US size 4 short length or I can send measurements if need be)

 -- A little felt firebird. I think this is just about the cutest thing ever.

 -- A small purse/wristlet like this one.

 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or whatever. Again, a skill I don't have but love.

 -- Things for my apartment in Teal Blue and Chocolate Brown. I love these colors together. And I'd love something in them for the home. A quilt or throw; art; kitchen accessories; pillows; curtains, etc., etc. For inspiration: living room #1, tv stand, #3 We're getting rid of the white furniture - it was a handmedown - but we're here for another year so help!

 -- Wrist warmers in this pattern. It's just utterly cool.

 -- Disney stuff. Be it characters (like Mickey, Figment, Belle, Mike & Sulley, etc.) or movies (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Monster's Inc., Lady and the Tramp, etc.) or the parks (I live near WDW but I've never been to Disneyland), or historical stuff (books on Walt or the making of the parks, etc.), or things I can use/take to/wear about any of the above, I LOVE DISNEY. So by all means, get creative! Grin

 -- An Autumn Leaf Barrette. I miss autumn since we don't get leaves changing colors here in Florida.

 -- Something (surprise me!) incorporating owls, penguins, bats, cats or red foxes. They're my favorite animals.

 -- Fused glass, glass (microscope) slide or resin pendants you think I'd like.

 -- A set of sewn/quilted coasters. I love everything about this set for example.

 -- A ribbon organizer. Doesn't have to be this fabric. It's more the idea and the style of storage that I like here. Chocolate/Teal color combo would be great as would fun/cute fabric or prints (like owls or something.)

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists or my wishlist, or the colors I like and see what you can make that you think I'd like.


Craft Supplies
 
 -- Sewing stuff: Rotary cutter and/or self-healing board for sewing. Fabricgasm! I'm a new sewer so I covet fabrics now. And/or Sewing notions, tools or other helpful stuff a newbie sewer would need/covet/want/drool over. (Threads, buttons, snaps, etc.)

 -- The Softies Kit. I think it'd be fun to have an all-in-one kit to learn to make cute plush.

 -- The Polymer Clay Techniques Book. Looks helpful!

 -- Complete Guide To Sewing Book in either this new edition or this older edition. I'm still a very novice sewer who could make use of a reference book like this. (Especially since no one I know locally sews!)

 -- Starter resin kit/supplies (resin, molds, etc.)

 -- Starter rubber stamp carving stuff. (Maybe a kit or items like tools, the rubber to carve into, how-to/instructions, etc.)

 -- Lampwork beads.

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such. Also, I love Swarovski crystal, unique clasps or toggles, and jewelry wire in 16 gauge and 24 gauge in any color. Gemstone chips are awesome as well since I make Tree of Life pendants with them.


Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

 -- Starter resin kit/supplies (resin, molds, etc.)

 -- Starter rubber stamp carving stuff. (Maybe a kit or items like tools, the rubber to carve into, how-to/instructions, etc.)

 -- Lampwork beads.

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such. Also, I love Swarovski crystal, unique clasps or toggles, and jewelry wire in 16 gauge and 24 gauge in any color. Gemstone chips are awesome as well since I make Tree of Life pendants with them.


Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

I claim phoenixfiredesigns for  The Polymer Clay Techniques Book!

This is my second claim this round (2, 0, 0).

Hi!  Im addicted to knitting, though I love many other crafts as well!  A Michigan (USA) native, I am enamored of watery landscapes and northern hardwood forests.  My deepest wish is to live on a lake or river.  I love snow and wintery landscapes, cool colors and corny humor.  I love superheroes and mourn the fact that Im fat and 50 superhero material beyond repair.  ☺  I wist.

Poetry journal with your favorite (or original) works included

Notecards I love handcrafted notecards and use them for everything from swapping to thank yous!  If you have sent me notecards in the past, I am either using them and loving them, or they are all gone! 

Handspun yarn, any colors, any amount - I love handspun yarn!

I claim addicted2knitting for an office poster against bullying and some notecards Smiley

This is my first claim this round (1, 0, 0).

My name is Emma and I'm currently living in Ann Arbor, MI with my boyfriend and his parents. I spend practically all my free time either crafting, reading, or watching horribly addicting reality tv. I'm a really laid-back type of person, I don't wear a lot of jewelry, make-up, etc. My boyfriend and I are planning on moving out soon so any sort of decorating/useful houseware stuff would be awesome; the walls will definitely need some loving with some artwork Smiley I love all colors, except pastels and neons. I love quirky animals/objects/anything. I love recycled craftiness, using found objects and materials and using it for a totally new purpose. I'm not allergic to anything that I'm aware of. My wist is full of ideas of my likes and desires.
