PLEASE DO NOT POST IN THIS THREAD IF YOU ARE NOT POSTING A LIST (WITH APPROVAL). THERE IS A SEPARATE THREAD FOR DISCUSSION; THIS THREAD IS FOR BIRTHDAY LISTS ONLY.

PLEASE READ ALL RULES BEFORE YOU SEND YOUR INFO.

PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR LIST UNTIL YOU RECEIVE A PM SAYING THAT YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED.
The first 3 Craftsters to sign up will have extra time to choose a partner....
after that, I ask that you notify me of your choice of craftee within 3 days of posting your list.

Swap name: September 2009 Birthday Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: craftydeb

FOR POSTING BIRTHDAY LISTS Sign-up date range:  Sept 1- Sept 30
FOR CHOOSING A BIRTHDAY WISH TO FULFILL Sign-up date range:  Sept 1- Sept 30
DATE TO SEND ITEMS BY:  2 weeks after you claim someone unless other arrangements are made ahead of time

Limited to a certain number of people?: No.
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No.
You must be 13 years old to swap.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES


Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:

- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES
- Participant lives in the United States: YES/NO
   - If yes, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
   - If no, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:  This swap was organized so everyone can get something crafty for their birthday!  Please read the guidelines carefully.

1. This swap is list style, like the Ongoing Wishlist Swap, however it is NOT chain style. You can choose any birthday craftsters list that is posted, rather than only picking the last one.

2. This is a medium item swap. A medium item is defined as a craft or recon etc that takes you two hours to complete OR $20 worth of Store Bought Items. (If bought from a thrift store, estimate at what it would have cost new.) However you may also substitute a few small items for a medium.

3. If your birthday is in swap's current month, you can post your birthday wish list for this month. To do that, you must first PM me with the swap questionnaire filled out and wait for approval.

4. Once you have been approved, you may post your list of things that you would like to receive. This is the format for your lists: First post your location and a short bio of yourself, then a list of crafted items you would like, then craft supplies (if any) and lastly you can put a few extras that arent crafted, things like candy or tea. Remember, the more items on your list, the more likely you are to be chosen. The minimum of items to post is five.  Also including your wists is a good way for people to get the idea of your likes and style.  If you have any allergies please type them in red in your bio section.

5. Please post lists only in this thread. Discussion can be done here in the combined discussion/gallery thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=319514.0

 6. Every birthday participant must make at least one claim. You may have up to two claims at a time, and then you can claim again once your items are received (not when you mail out). New swappers may only have one outstanding claim; they may claim again after their first claim is received. Claims need to be made from the "crafted" and "craft supplies" sections of a person's list. The "extras" are just that--extra items you may want to throw in if you are feeling generous, but claims cannot be solely extras. Keep it crafty :-) (I'm asking that if you are sending mostly supplies, that you craft a little something for the bday babe.)

7. You may get claimed more than once, but your minimum amount to claim is one.  It is possible you may not get claimed at all. In this case you will not be provided a swap angel; angels are only if you get flaked on. However I do my best to make sure everyone gets claimed by keeping track of how many times each person is claimed. If possible try to pick someone who has been claimed 0 times versus someone who has been claimed 3 times.

8. If it is not your birthday but you would like to send a birthday present out you may do so.  Fill out the non-birthday swapper questionnaire and send it to me for approval.  Birthday swappers who receive a present from a non-birthday swapper must send a snail mail thank you card.  You will not receive feedback until I hear from the other swapper that they have received a thank you card.

 9. When you choose to fulfill a birthday wish, PM both me (craftydeb) AND the chosen craftster.  At that time, please request the address for where to send it.  After that you have 2 weeks to get the item out the door.

10. It is super important for everyone to keep good communication.  It is REQUIRED that you PM me when you've sent and of course, don't forget the DC#.  It is REQUIRED that when you receive, you PM me and publicly announce in the gallery (even if you don't have pictures).  

11. When one of your items is chosen, please cross it out so that it is easier for others to see what has been chosen.
(It wouldn't hurt to thank the person at this time either.)

12. If you are sending late you must PM me by your send-out date.  If your send-out date comes and goes and you dont PM me, you will receive poor communication feedback.  It should not be my job to hunt you down and find out what is going on.

Please make sure to put July Bday Swap or something equivalent in the subject line on all communications.  The most important thing to me is communication.  Please PM me when you send and receive, and please reply to my PM's to you in a timely manner.

Hi birthday craftsters!  My name is Karen and I live in Austin, TX.  My birthday is Sept 8 and I will be turning...what, wait, no, it can't be possible...45?!?  I don't feel that old!

I love to sew and dabble in lots of other crafts as well.  I have a fabulous 12 yo daughter (who can't wait to join craftster herself), a huge, goofy dog and a lovely, prissy cat.

I love designs from the 60's and early 70s as well as asian design.  I'd rather not have anything country or shabby chic.  I prefer things that have a use or a purpose rather than sit on a shelf.  I would love anything from either of my wists (see my profile) but especially the things below.

I can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Crafted Items
Knit or crocheted Scoodie
                 in Deep Red or Tangerine Orange similar to this one:  
                http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=29671559
T-shirt (ladies fitted- medium) with Totoro   ---Thanks v3nu5!!! ----
               I love this particular design:  http://static2.animepaper.net/upload/thumbs/wallpapers/My-Neighbor-Totoro/%5Blarge%5D%5BAnimePaper%5Dwallpapers_My-Neighbor-Totoro_flyindreams_31996.jpg

Original artwork
               simliar to this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25225983
               or  this:  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23861515
Handmade cards
               here are some styles I found quickly: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=99842  or http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6199848  or  
              http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=107033  
             also, scenes from old boardwalks or black and white photos

Tree of Life sculptures
               I don't typically like things that aren't "used", but I'm fascinated by those wired tree of life sculptures: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=299424.0

knitted socks (size 9 shoe)

Overnight bag in bright colors

Handmade soaps, lotions, scrubs - love scents like frangipiangi (sp?), coconut, cucumber, sage

Peyote stitch or loomed bracelet

amigurumi - perhaps Pucca or a cute little monster (ok, this is for my daughter) - thanks Lilyla19 !!!

steampunk style jewelry

Fingerless gloves/wristwarmer
      similar to this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=239108.0

Crocheted or sewing reusable shopping bag - especially one that rolls up into its own pocket or has a small case

Stash/Supplies:
Hand dyed yarn to make my own scarf

fabric/Fat quarters in retro/60's or asian inspired prints (anything by amy butler)

instructions for crocheting/crocheting kit (I have been unsuccessfully trying to figure it out on my own)

glass etching kit

Spinning kit (again, for my daughter)

Other random stuffs
crafting books - ask, cuz I already have a lot, but I'm always looking for new ones...especially vintage
anything dark chocolate and/or caramel
lovely loose leaf tea

50 in 2012 (24/50)

Hey kids! Cheesy I live in Los Angeles, California and turned 22 yesterday. My family has many pets but my own is a 15 year old Siamese cat. He's my baby. I love to needle felt, make paper crafts, make jewelery, ride my road bicycle (her name is Anihan), and read. I'm allergic to metals except for silver and gold. I'm a huge fan of Flight of the Conchords, Johnen Vasquez (Invader Zim, Squee!, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac), Freakazoid!, Dethklok, and Firefly/Serenity. I love gothic and Japanese fashion (especially goth, lolita, and decora). I'm a big anime fan too (Soul Eater, Avatar the Last Airbender, Ghibli productions and more). I dislike perfume. I am not a fan of pink, yellow, or orange.

Crafted Items
*Jayne Cobb's hat<this would make my century
*Earrings that reflect my interests with some sort of backing. (I love black, red, and green)
*A lace choker or necklace
*Stenciled t-shirt of any above interests. (in women's fitted large) Claimed by thatkid. I'm very excited!
*Rainbow scarf Already claimed. Thanks Raesmom!
*Stretchy head band/casual fascinator(sp?) to hold back my really short hair. I wear strange stuff so go crazy! No butterflies or dragonflies please

Craft Supplies
*ATC rubber stamp Please message me...I want specific text on it Smiley
*Paper craft kit-I'm new to paper crafts and would love a beefening up of my stash I'm currently obsessed with browns, sepia, white, copper, and gold
*Scrapbook folders or boxes to organize my paper craft stuff
*Art Books are Magazines with techniques on paper craft, jewelery, and needle felting

Hi everyone, and Happy Birthday to you September born.
My name is Vanessa, I will be 32 this year, I am married, no kids, but we count our dogs. I live in Tucson, Az, and try and stay inside and craft or play games to survive the immense heat. I am a World of Warcraft addict. I am a Libra through and through. Also a self proclaimed geek, I love Star Wars & video games. I love to cook, bake, read and  to craft. I would describe my style(s) as creepy cute i guess. On one side I love Nightmare before Christmas and opposite I adore Hello Kitty and Sanrio. I'm not a pink girl, I dont like pastels too much. I like bold colors, and earthy tones. Which explains why I love camping in the mountains so much in the fall. Plum purple and olive/jade greens are among my fav's. I love anime, and movies. I like mythical themes from dragons & unicorns to trolls, orcs & mermaids. But my favorite theme/decorum is Oriental/Asian. Traditional Japanese or Chinese is gorgeous!

CRAFTIES: You can see my wish list or wist for reference.
My very own Poppet. I know its a stretch. But a gal can dream.
Amigurumi anything. Animals, mythical, or sci-fi.
A stenciled t-shirt in any color, any of my fav styles.
Makeup/hygiene tote, or over night bag.
A handmade wallet or organizer.
Anything resin. Resin knitting needles, pendants, earrings, ect.
Jewelery- I love earrings; dangle, hoops or studs. Bracelets, and necklaces; the longer the better.  Thanks Terrabella.
Handmade candles, facial scrubs, soaps, lotions, or cremes. Oh yum.
Picture frames- I can never have enough, since my nieces give so many photo opportunities.
Keepsake boxes, or polymer covered tins.
A lap quilt all my own, in my fav colors.
Jewelery/earring organizer.

Supplies: *also see my wists if ya like.
Fiber to try spinning. I have made my own hand spindle but few fiber.
Polymer clay and supplies. I still use toothpicks for my poly clay things. *embarrassed*
Any fabric. Especially that is Hello Kitty or kawaii style.
Oh zippers! Any color, any sizes.
Poppet patterns or supplies for clothes or the doll,like doll eyes. If I cant get one I wanna make one.
Knitting or crocheting needles. Can never have enough, I only have 1 pair of knitting needles.
Any yarn, any style and any color, but I do love the big fluffy kind.
Fat quarters or fabric scraps for quilt.
Beads, charms and BEADS!

Extras:
Chocolate Anything!
Teas
Buttons, I'm getting into the obsession.
Stickers, Disney or hello kitty, or anything from my wists.
Note pads, or paper books for journal or swap organization.

My wish list http://amzn.com/w/29SE3N837YP25 Also my wist: http://wists.com/v3nu5

Thank you in advanced, and Happy Birthday!
