Approval
Package sent
Package received
Question

This will help me stay organized.  Also, please include the send by date with any package sent or received.



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 Childrens Ongoing Wish Swap 7.

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 its 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 ITEMS FOR A CHILD.  You can join wanting to receive for a child other than your own.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.  Also site examples/links to tutorials/finished items, which helps A LOT.


(Please have your list ready, this swap can move 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 day, 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?

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
- 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 COWS rounds to see how an OWS works

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.


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

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer: mimiw

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: COWS 8
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name and address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?

We'll start with norahkate's list from COWS 7:


My name is Norah and I live in chilly freezing Wisconsin.  I have two munchkins, Jules (Julian) is 1 and little man (Jackson) is 3.  Jules loves everything musical; dancing, instruments (so he can play them and dance to them).  Jackson loves everything.  No seriously, he does.

hmmm,
Ideas:

anything involving Kai Lan (or any character from the show Ni Hao Kai Lan)
and now Powerpuff Girls.  if you can somehow make him something "boyish" involving the powerpuff girls that would be amazing.
and Transformers...espe cially Bumblebee

ooh...anything having to do with Power Rangers.  how could i forget that?


This doll
, or pattern.

Hoodies are always fun...in size 12mo or 4T

Any kind of travel toys.

A mario mushroom hat like the one here


Fun towels for them (just bath towels, doctored up any way that you would like) - these kids would live in the bath if i let them.  (And yes, we swim in the summer and at the Y on weekends, but it's winter here in WI and sooo cold!)

Shirts/clothes with a Chinese feel (my husband is Taiwanese, so we like things that help them recognize and explore that part of their heritage too!)

any clothes in size 18mo or 4T (it's so much fun to have homemade and Jackson loves when something is "cut" (sewn) just for him)
I love this set

a cool boy poppet (it's up to you to decide what qualifies as "cool" as i'm not good with that and 3 year olds aren't really, either   Wink)

Pj bottoms in 4T

anything related to alvin and the chipmunks (the new movie, not the cartoon - that kid is obsessed)

A petticoat for my 4 year old niece (she wears a size 5) like these or these.  Any colors, although I have this thing for pink and red together.  Then again, I won't be wearing it...and I think that just stems from having all boys.  Wink
(I've made her a couple tutus and she loves them, but these are something different altogether and just gorgeous!)

**Anything for my twin nieces, they are three months old**

Okay, I'll try to update this sometime.  There are a million cute things out there but when it comes down to it I'm not very good at this!

Thanks!

I claim NorahKate for a very oversized taggy playmat for her twin nieces. I made one of these for my twins when they were starting tummy time and it was great, especially when we would travel to other peoples houses.

This is my 1st claim this round, 0 sent and 0 received.

Added More

My name is Jennifer and I have twin's: Boy/Girl that will be 2 in April and a baby girl on the way who was a huge suprise to us as we had IVF with the twins and were told we couldn't have any more.  We live in Buffalo New York, USA. We have just started to Go Green! I LOVE crafting and so excited to be part of this community.

Tyler:  2 years old and tall!  He wears 2T-3T size clothes. He LOVES Bob the Builder!!! We are moving to a new house in a few weeks and his new room is going to be a space theme. We saw a solar system mobile to hang from the ceiling at Pottery Barn (http://aliedwards.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2007/06/29/planets.jpg) and he feel in love so I purchased it along with a star quilt I found on clearance (http://www.potterybarnkids.com/products/sw4720/index.cfm) and now I have been looking for some more decorations/ pictures. 

He also loves balls and would love some crochet or felt ones that make noise like http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=265258.msg2993622#msg2993622 Anything soft because the twins like to throw them at each other.

Kate: 2 years old.  She wears a size 2T. She love's her dolls and anything girly! She has many hair clippies I have made her and would love a place to display them. Something in colors to match her new room.

Her new room theme is Fairy Tales, princess, prince, horse and carriage---not Disney Princesses. Smiley  Pink walls and the bedding is Elizabeth from Pottery Barn.

Coloring Booklet ~ They love to color and they love stickers!

Reusable sandwich/ lunch bags like this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_6&listing_id=21451008&ga_search_query=sandwich+bags&ga_search_type=tag_title

They just got Kleen Kanteens and could use a cover's for them as they get pretty cold to hold.

They would love a Card table playhouse, tent or tipee.

Kate loves baby dolls. Anything for them- cloth diapers, clothing, diaper bag. Anything- she loves her dolls.

Any kind of play set like http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_10&listing_id=20456301&ga_search_query=playhouse&ga_search_type=category_tags_toys
or http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=cat2_list_1&listing_id=21850248. Thay LOVE to play and would love any kind of play set.
It doesn't matter if its fairies and princess or trucks and building. They play everything together.

Any kind of storage things such as tins http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_1&listing_id=21580416 or baskets or boxes. They have so many different toys and crafts: we need storage!

Placemats for the table: we are starting to sit at the table and not in a high chair anymore. Something easily wiped.

Anything for the tub!

They are fun loving kids who love to play, color and have fun so anything will be enjoyed!

I claim SpencerTwins2007 for placemats (and whatever else I can whip up before the send date).
This is my 1st claim, 0 sent, 0 received.


I am a SAHM (atm, however I am currently looking for a job, bleh) of 1 darling little boy who is almost 3.5 years old.  We live in North Carolina (USA) and have 2 cats.

Quentin - almost 3.5 year old boy
Currently wears size 3T/4T in shirts and for pants 3T+ length with 2T waist would be best, size 7.5+ in toddler shoes.  If you need actual measurements let me know, I have them. 
Loves Thomas/trains, cars (ie-HotWheels), SuperWhy, Clifford, Lazytown, Yo Gabba Gabba, WonderPets, Ni Hao, Kai-lan, Spongebob, Dora/Diego, Blue's Clues, Mario Bros/MarioKart, Sonic, RockBand, pirates, dinosaurs, space/rockets (and lots of other things, just ask, he probably likes it)  OMG, I can't believe I almost forgot Spiderman!  (Really Q hasn't seen a TV show he doesn't like...)
Also enjoys cheese (in many wonderous forms, from quesadilas to cubes), cookies, ice cream, chocolate milk and fruit snacks and M&M's (kid LOVES some m&ms).  (I promise he doesn't just eat these things, they are just on the top of the list of things he wants when I ask him what he wants for whatever meal)
Also likes trying to ride his new tricycle, running in circles around the house, gymnastics class & soccer class.
Likes watching KC Chiefs football with his daddy and grandpa every Sunday (they all have matching jerseys, it's really quite adorable).  Also UNC Tarheel basketball is big in this house.  (He also has a KU-Jayhawks grandpa and an UGA-Bulldogs grandpa pulling him in their directions, haha).
He doesn't really have a favorite color (at least not one that he will tell me, he just starts naming all the colors he knows), sticking to boy appropriate colors would be best (so no pinks or purples).

---------------------------------------------------------

Play Food/Play Kitchen items - pots&pans/utensils/etc... and food items, I have a whole booklet that I printed out of crocheted foods but I haven't had a chance to get them started.  Crocheted/knit/felt/etc... please no faces on the items, there's nothing weirder than pretending to cook and eat foods that have cute/funny faces.
(I have gotten some stuff in past swapping, you can see it all in this photobucket album, be sure to check it out so you don't send anything we already have, thanks!)

Awesome shirts or hoodie - please no iron ons (they do not last in my wash and my kiddo picks at anything that he thinks is a sticker) - in any of his favorite things or check out the examples on his wist (link below, and yes I made my kid his own wist, haha)

Lounge pants/shorts or PJs in fabrics in his favorite things.

Art for bedroom/bathroom (painting/embroidery/fabric/etc) - Bedroom is transportation themed, bathroom is monkeys/jungle.  (Here is a link to my flickr set with pictures of both rooms-the only thing that is different now other than furniture being moved around is the Thomas curtain on the window, it's posted on here somewhere... also his bathroom has now been painted blue (it's the same color as the elephant on the shower curtain)- http://www.flickr.com/photos/amystagner/sets/72157603919027797/)

Transportation themed (or Thomas themed) Bedding... blanket/quilt/sheets/pillowcases (please no fleece blankets, he has like 5 of them now)... twin sized.

Something to help him with mastering buttoning buttons and tying laces and snapping snaps (like on pants/jeans), etc... he knows what to do, but gets really frustrated when he trying to get dressed so I think something he could practice on that isn't on him would be good.

This is a biggie, but this thing is just too cool, so I thought why not, I can't seem to figure out how to make it... http://www.shopatron.com/product/product_id=BOO801/514.0

Knit socks!  I just love knit socks but I can't knit myself and crocheted socks aren't as nice looking (at least not any patterns that I have seen, if you know of any please send me links).

Slippers (non-slip) or thick snuggly sock booties... our feet get cold in this house.

Sewing/crocheting patterns for infants/toddlers/boys/girls (we plan on having at least one more, it might be a little while, but I have been collecting patterns so I will be ready when we do)

I would especially love a pattern for toddler underpants (like these... http://youcanmakethis.com/info/boys/Childrens-Undies.htm & http://youcanmakethis.com/info/boys/Knit-Boxers-Sizes-2-7.htm).  He keeps asking for a pair of Mario underpants but they don't make them, so I am going to have to see if I can find some old Mario shirts and make him some (unless you want to make some for him, he wears size 2T atm, skinny little booty, but the next size up would be good too he can't just grow up forever right, he has to grow out at some point...)

Fun colorful kid soaps to encourage washing in the bath (right now I do all the washing and I would like it if he would start doing it himself), ones with toys inside would be great too.

Mario (as in the Nintendo Mario bros) amigurumi - snugglably sized.

Really anything Mario or MarioKart related, kid loves some Mario games.

Craft projects we can work on together (no foam kits or bits, we are over-run with them and he just keeps sticking them to my dining table which they are quite hard to remove from), anything to help fuel his natural craftiness (it's very much in his genes).

Fabric in any of his favorite things or other kids prints (no baseball prints though please...) (cotton-I am sorely lacking cotton prints atm, fleece, flannel, knits, any kind!)

Small balls of yarn for all the amigurumi's he keeps requesting that I make him (I destashed all mine months ago, right before he discovered the awesomeness of amis).

Any of these crochet patterns - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18134379, http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_2&listing_id=18203850, http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18127049, http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_1&listing_id=18062343, http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_7&listing_id=18201865, http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18166245  (or other cute patterns that are similar)

Extras/Store bought - We love candy/snacks (especially ones from other countries!), puzzles (used is fine, as long as all the pieces are there), books (again, used is fine as long as there aren't any pages torn out or anything like that), viewmaster reels, unwanted gameboy games, age appropriate craft supplies, stickers, *cookie cutters (Q LOVES to make cookie cutter cookies).

------------------------------------------------------------

I claim Zelda.Suicide for comfy lounge pants and bath accesories.
1st claim, 0sent, 0 recieved.
 

I am a WAHM from NY with four kids; five if you count DH (and I DO count him)  Cheesy six if you count our dog (she's the best behaved )

Wish list
The Queen Bee is 7. Loves purple, princesses and anything ultra feminine. size 8
She has a my Twinn doll and would LOVE matching outfit for herself and her doll Rosie.

The King Cobra is 5. Loves knights, swords, and anything pointy   Shocked size 5 He has a new obsession for clothes with pockets. Shirts pants Pj's everything MUST have pockets.

Hercules is 4. Loves Legos, wrestling, fixing things and anything related to Handy Mandy or Bob the builder. Size 5
He is developing middle child syndrome so picking him would be most appreciated if you can.

Squirmy is 1. She's trying to catch up to her older siblings and will not play with BABY toys  Tongue Wears 18-24 months
Weaning is not in her near future apparently so slings and other nursing gear is still welcome.

I would love for any of them:
set of name alphabet letter pillows (have pattern if needed)
bath toys
chalkboard placemat
Kid friendly jewelry and accesories. My kids all think they are catwalk material.
aprons
kid recipe books
kid sized (but functional) cooking apparel


For girls:
twirly skirts or dresses

For boys:

Our boys have  long hair and we are in desperate search for non-girly hair ties/clips/other way to see their eyes (besides black elastic) . Braiding books or hair jewels are always welcome.

We don't do guns (wait let me rephrase that) Mommy does not like guns and although even bananas in our house magically turn into AK-47s we would appreciate no army /violent themes or toys.


I have a tiny wist since my AOL does not want to accept that toolbar thingie but we are really up for anything so try us.

I seem to be hanging here so I decided to add my neices and nephews. Maybe it will inspire someone to craft for me Undecided

Neice #1 is 10 and loves CSI and mystery detective novels. She's a big reader so anything related would be great. She also loves jokes both practical and regular knock knock variety

Neice #2 is 7 and is a total ham. She loves the camera asnd anything that brings her attention. Think NEON colors.

Nephew is 3. He likes trains and is obsessed with his nintendo ds.

Crafty stuff forthem would be
anything related to mario bros
cool totes
anything karate related (they all have belt ranks)
Well if i'm still here tomorrow I'll try to add links. Huh

Can i pick myself? Wink It would give me a chance to work on my neice's bday present.

I'm feeling like i'm the last in elemtary school to be picked for dodgeball Tongue

Kate loves baby dolls. Anything for them- cloth diapers, clothing, diaper bag. Anything- she loves her dolls.

Any kind of play set like http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_10&listing_id=20456301&ga_search_query=playhouse&ga_search_type=category_tags_toys
or http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=cat2_list_1&listing_id=21850248. Thay LOVE to play and would love any kind of play set.
It doesn't matter if its fairies and princess or trucks and building. They play everything together.

Any kind of storage things such as tins http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_1&listing_id=21580416 or baskets or boxes. They have so many different toys and crafts: we need storage!

Placemats for the table: we are starting to sit at the table and not in a high chair anymore. Something easily wiped.

Anything for the tub!

They are fun loving kids who love to play, color and have fun so anything will be enjoyed!

I claim Spencer twins for hair display and assorted goodies.
(didn't want to leave you hanging any longer Wink )

2ndc laim 0 sent 0 recieved


I am a WAHM from NY with four kids; five if you count DH (and I DO count him)   six if you count our dog (she's the best behaved )

Wish list
The Queen Bee is 7. Loves purple, princesses and anything ultra feminine. size 8
She has a my Twinn doll and would LOVE matching outfit for herself and her doll Rosie.(used baby dresses in 0-3 months work great)

The King Cobra is 5. Loves knights, swords, and anything pointy    size 5 He has a new obsession for clothes with pockets. Shirts pants Pj's everything MUST have pockets.

Hercules is 4. Loves Legos, wrestling, fixing things and anything related to Handy Mandy or Bob the builder. Size 5
He is developing middle child syndrome so picking him would be most appreciated if you can.

Squirmy is 1. She's trying to catch up to her older siblings and will not play with BABY toys  Loves musical instruments and noisy noisy things
 Wears 18-24 months
Weaning is not in her near future apparently so slings and other nursing gear is still welcome.

I would love for any of them:
set of name alphabet letter pillows (have pattern if needed)
bath toys
chalkboard placemat
Kid friendly jewelry and accesories. My kids all think they are catwalk material.
aprons
kid recipe books
kid sized (but functional) cooking apparel



For girls:
twirly skirts or dresses
tea set


For boys:

Our boys have  long hair and we are in desperate search for non-girly hair ties/clips/other way to see their eyes (besides black elastic) . Braiding books or hair jewels are always welcome.
We don't do guns (wait let me rephrase that) Mommy does not like guns and although even bananas in our house magically turn into AK-47s we would appreciate no army /violent themes or toys.



 I've decided to add my neices and nephews.

Neice #1 is 10 and loves CSI and mystery detective novels. She's a big reader so anything related would be great. She also loves jokes both practical and regular knock knock variety

Neice #2 is 7 and is a total ham. She loves the camera and anything that brings her attention. Think NEON colors.

Nephew is 3. He likes trains and is obsessed with his nintendo ds.

Crafty stuff forthem would be
anything related to mario bros
cool totes
anything karate related (they all have belt ranks)
I spy bags



Pick me!!!!!! Pick me!!!!   Grin
Thanks for looking!
