Thank you spectrumsparksie for angeling!

I am in need of one angel for the organizer of this swap, Nostrum.   The Craft for My Other or Another swap requires a 5 point package to be crafted for a person in your life in need of a little crafty love.

Nostrum lives in Australia so to keep postage costs down it would be great to have an angel from that part of the world!   Here is her swap questionarre, if you are interested in angeling for Nostrum please send me a pm Smiley

Who is this swap for? Name, and relationship to you: Dylan, boyfriend/future mister.
What are their hobbies? Hes a prop maker and a costumer. Hes always making something in the garage, and is always looking for peculiar bits and pieces that might be a good greeblie for a project.
What are their likes? He loves Star Wars (Favourite characters are Boba Fett and the Clone Troopers from Ep 2); all sorts of science fiction from BattleStar Galactica to really old sci-fi like the original War Of The Worlds.
He likes steampunk too, so brass and rustic tones are great. A lot of our house is decked out with a warm/natural colour scheme. Deep red leather chesterfield couches, phonograph, mahogany wood (Fake, unfortunately! Its expensive stuff!), and a variety of oddities. He wants to set up one wall with jars of odd specimens and old curios from scientific discoveries.

Though if youre sending overseas, its probably better that if its made out of clay or one of those expands-in-water toys, to pack it in the jar with cotton wool and let us fill up the jar at the other end. Customs gets a little edgy when they find jars with preserved things in them, and a post-it stuck to the jar explaining what it is might help too.. It also cancels out the chance of jars leaking.
Old pocket watches that were dug out of an excavation in 1850s England, backdated to 1370, etc. Any curio that seems unexplained and a little out of place. Smiley
Hes really interested in martial arts and historical Asian culture too. 
What are their favourite colours / patterns / etc? He likes natural earthy tones. Deep reds and browns and the sort. He likes blue, too. Vertical pinstripes and the sort.
Do they have any dislikes? He doesnt like cutesy things, pastel colours, or anything silly. He seems to have a vex for anything thats been deformed or turned chibi. Big heads and little bodies just dont cut it for him. Tongue
Do they have any allergies? Nope!
Any other information you might like to add?
He wears size XL shirts/tshirts, and loves receiving new ones. Hed prefer something not black (claims he has too many of them), so red, brown, or blue would be awesome.
Dyls really keen to lose more weight, so anything that might urge him on (handy recipies, a tshirt thats a size L, so he has to shrink before he can wear it, etc). Hes not much for the motivational you can do it! stuff.

Can you clarify the 5-point package definition?

Generally by size it is small=1, medium=2 and large=3.  so any combination that adds up to 5 would be on target Smiley
