I'm claiming phoenixfiredesigns for "a project tote/fabric bucket". I'll be making the project totebag.

This is my first claim.

I live in Florida (USA) with my husband, two-year-old identical twin girls, and our seven indoor cats.


Here's my wishlist!

Random Things About Me You Can Run With

Jerry Orbach is one of my all-time favorite people.

I am completely infatuated with PyramidHead from Silent Hill.

I love me some Jean-Claude Van Damme

I play Guitar Hero and RockBand on expert.

I love anything and everything with polka dots. Black and pink are my absolute favorite, but I do *love* all the different color combinations too. Currently my crafting room is painted pink with black polka dots.

My bedroom is decorated in horror movie decor, so anything along those lines would be great.

I'm a mom of twin girls so anything that says "twin mom" or its variations is great too.

I collect Disney Princesses, Care Bears, Superheroes, Neopets, and Chuck Taylors.

I really hate "Twilight".

Our kitchen is decorated in cows and pigs.

Our living room is decorated in our favorite television shows and movies. Absolutely anything made from the following would be awesome, "How I Met Your Mother", "40 Year Old Virgin", "Knocked Up", "Supernatural", "Superbad", "The Princess Bride", "The Odd Couple" (movie, not tv show), "Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog", "24", "Bones", "FanBoys", "The Simpsons", "Serenity/Firefly", "The Office", "A Christmas Story", "The Golden Girls", "Shaun of the Dead", "Ghostbusters", "Hot Fuzz".

I love the girlie looking skull with the bow.

Crafty:

Blood spatter bedroom/bathroom decor (There's one I saw here on Craftster and will post a link as soon as I find it again.)

In case of Zombies (Like these: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=304505.0, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=202668.0)

An Amigurumi Rabbid from Raving Rabbids video game.

T-Shirt with "I could totally make that" on it. (I say that all the time when I'm at the stores!)

Totebag/Purse (You can never have enough of them!)

An apron. (I really love this one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=319728.0)

This t-shirt from "How I Met Your Mother"  Front: http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z130/Gravatt1203/NJScreenshotHIMYM.jpg  Back: http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z130/Gravatt1203/NJScreenshotHIMYM02.jpg

T-shirt or hoodie that says, "Vampires don't sparkle" (There's one that I need to find the link for.)

Thing 1 & Thing 2 shirts for my kids.

Comfy pajama pants.

Wonder Twin shirts for the kiddos.

Blankets (I love blankets of any kind. Sewn, quilted, tied, crochet, whatever.) Thanks goodtimegirl!

Cute little hair bows for the kiddos.

Anything to help organize my ever-expanding craft supplies.

Supplies:

Shrinky-Dinks (I can't seem to find them around here.)
Spools of ribbon
Beads
Lobster Clasps (I can never seem to have enough)
Jewelry findings
Fabric
Tape measure
Seam Ripper
Tailor's Chalk
Perler Beads
Crafting Magazines/Books (I do a little bit of a lot in crafting.)

Part time Domestic Goddess, full time Art Geek


View Profile WWW available for personal swaps
« Reply #56 on: November 21, 2009 06:45:56 PM »

I claim Banga for a mystery Wist item.
This is my 1st claim out of 3. 0 sent, 0 received.

My name is Diana, I'm from Southern California! I'm a married part-time domestic goddess, full time art geek. I got married September 5th, 2008 to the love of my life. We live together with the other love of my life, our 2 year old chihuahua mix Georgie. We do not have any human kids and it will be a long time before we do.

I'm 22 years old, planning to transfer to Otis College of art and design next year to be a commercial arts major!

My favorite color combination is black-pink-white. I am currently obsessed with zebra print. I also like polka dots, stripes, and argyle. Other colors I like include most blues, most violets, and seafoam green. I'm not fond of neon colors. I hate yellow and green unless they're a secondary color that goes with something else (like an accent color basically).

For my dog, I love to see him in primary colors and anything you would typically associate with a little boy (like race cars, rocket ships, etc). He's typically a size "Small", but if you need any measurements I have them around here somewhere. He loves rope toys, plushies, and any treats that look and smell like something you would eat yourself.

For my hubby, his favorite color combination is blue-black-white. He prefers solid colors, stripes, and minimal designs.

I THINK I'm allergic to wool, but I am not sure of this. I can hold wool in my hands and knit/crochet with it, but I cannot wear it on my skin. I have been told that I should try washing wool first and to try the expensive wools but can't afford to spend money on a $10 skein of yarn I might not be able to use. So any scraps of wool (like 10 yards or less) would be appreciated as long as they are labeled!

I have extra sensitive skin, I cannot use any bath & beauty product that isn't handmade or all natural.
My favorite scents are Vanilla, Strawberry, and Citrus.

My hubby is allergic to cat hair/dander, so if you have a cat please keep away or wash before sending!

i'll claim akredhead right back for a magic yarn ball! Grin
This is my 2nd claim out of 3. 0 sent, 0 received.

My name is Diana, I'm from Southern California! I'm a married part-time domestic goddess, full time art geek. I got married September 5th, 2008 to the love of my life. We live together with the other love of my life, our 2 year old chihuahua mix Georgie. We do not have any human kids and it will be a long time before we do.

I'm 22 years old, planning to transfer to Otis College of art and design next year to be a commercial arts major!

My favorite color combination is black-pink-white. I am currently obsessed with zebra print. I also like polka dots, stripes, and argyle. Other colors I like include most blues, most violets, and seafoam green. I'm not fond of neon colors. I hate yellow and green unless they're a secondary color that goes with something else (like an accent color basically).

For my dog, I love to see him in primary colors and anything you would typically associate with a little boy (like race cars, rocket ships, etc). He's typically a size "Small", but if you need any measurements I have them around here somewhere. He loves rope toys, plushies, and any treats that look and smell like something you would eat yourself.

For my hubby, his favorite color combination is blue-black-white. He prefers solid colors, stripes, and minimal designs.

I THINK I'm allergic to wool, but I am not sure of this. I can hold wool in my hands and knit/crochet with it, but I cannot wear it on my skin. I have been told that I should try washing wool first and to try the expensive wools but can't afford to spend money on a $10 skein of yarn I might not be able to use. So any scraps of wool (like 10 yards or less) would be appreciated as long as they are labeled!

I have extra sensitive skin, I cannot use any bath & beauty product that isn't handmade or all natural.
My favorite scents are Vanilla, Strawberry, and Citrus.

My hubby is allergic to cat hair/dander, so if you have a cat please keep away or wash before sending!
