If you just have a general question, label it as that. This will keep things organized for us!  When sending a sent/received PM, please include the 'Send by' date so my craziness will stay at a minimum.

IMPORTANT: Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

Please bookmark this thread and/or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.

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

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 Ongoing Wish Swap 54.

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 it's 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.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.

(Please have your list ready, this swap moves 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 few days/hours, 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?  Try the previous ongoing wish swap galleries or any other gallery on craftster.  Look through your fellow crafters wist lists.

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 confirmation number for packages within their own country
- didn't post pictures: failed to post pictures of what they received without an adequate explanation to their partner
- 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 rounds:

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT POSTING PHOTOS IS STILL A REQUIREMENT FOR THIS SWAP.  IF YOU CAN'T TAKE PHOTOS, PLEASE MENTION IT TO THE PERSON WHO CLAIMS YOU.

sunspotted - Will be your organizer, in charge of your claims, your sends, receives and approval.
TwiztidBlood - Will be co-organizer, in charge of the discussion thread.

gavagai is up from the last round

********************************************************************************

I live in Sweden with my SO and our baby (will be two years old on Valentines Day). I work as a student guidance councellor at the university. My SO works part time and is a part time stay at home daddy. During the last two years, we have both worked part time and been part time stay at home parents (except for the first three months when I studied full time and Mika was home with daddy full time). I also teach craft classes in the evenings. Lots of projects going on.    Cheesy


Please note: If you want to send me a book directly from amazon or some other online shop, please make sure that it is shipped from Europe. Otherwise I may face heavy customs fees.

Top two wishes right now

Latch & hook kit
My aunt made a couple of pillows using this technique back in the seventies. Apparently she loved it so much she used to go up an hour earlier in the morning to have time to work on them before work! Since she is not normally the crafty type I feel that this has to be encouraged, so I want to give her another kit, but they are hard to find in Sweden. Would love one with cats/kittens! Thank you so much sunspotted for these.   Grin I LOVE THEM   Grin

Pegboard hooks!
Hooks of different kinds for pegboard (also hard to find in Sweden). Would love all kinds of storage solutions for pegboard, like these or others (any kinds are appreciated):
http://www.hookstore.com/buckbins.htm#kb
http://www.hookstore.com/buckbins.htm#kb6
http://www.hookstore.com/panels.htm#office



Crafted things

Baby sling/carrier/meitai
I know this is a lot to ask for, but if someone wants to make me a non-elastic baby sling I would absolutely love you! Maybe something like the Storchen wiege (http://www.storchenwiege.com/). A non-elastic sling should preferably be woven diagonally (i.e. the fabric you use should be, look at the close-ups on the Storchenwiege site), but maybe it works with other fabrics as well. Other kinds of ergonomical carriers would also be great, like a meitai maybe (www.meitaibaby.com). Not a ring sling though, since they would probably kill my back. I need something with the weight well distributed over both shoulders and hips.

Granny square(?) shawl
A shawl made out of multi-coloured crocheted flowers (is there a name for it? is it even flowers? you know those colourful round (or squarish) things put together)

Funky baby clothes
Fun, funky (or maybe liberal, feminist, sarcastic...) baby clothes fitting a soon to be two-year-old or bigger. We're not into gender stereotyping, so any colours are o.k. Something knitted would be really cool! but anything goes: appliques, fabric painted, crocheted...

Woodland creatures to live in Christmas tree
Felt creatures for my Chrismas tree. We have this white plastic Christmas tree, that is really quite good looking, kind of magical with lights shining. I discovered that it looks even more magical if I let little creatures live on the branches, so for next Christmas I will need more woodland creatures, monsters or something like that to inhabit it. Felt looks good. I guess they could be crocheted as well, little amigurumis. Size maybe somewhere between 1.5" and 3.5". Some creatures to inspire you: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fantastictoys/sets/1630769/ but feel free to use your imagination.  Not right now

Anything from my wist
And of course anything else from or inspired by my evergrowing wist.
http://www.wists.com/gavagai


Kits (does this go under supplies?)

A soap making kit! (never tried before)

Resin kit! (never tried before)

A kit for any kind of craft I haven't tried yet. Feel free to PM me about that.


Supplies

Bathing suit fabric/pattern/old pictures
Bathing suit fabric and/or pictures/patterns of old bathing suits (think the twenties-thirties). I am thinking of sewing a bathing suit for little Mika, modelled after an old bathing suit. I'd like something with bloomers like legs, maybe in white and/or navy blue or striped (any colours), but colourful patterns (like flowers or something) would also look nice. I am doing this just for fun. She likes to bathe in the nude anyway.   Cheesy I just took tailoring classes, so I should be able to sew it as long as I have pictures and fabrics. A pattern for any sizes to adapt to her size would also be nice. Maybe I could crochet one as well come to think of it, but then the pattern would have to be made for a baby, since I am no good at adapting crochet patterns.   Smiley

hole puncher
Something to punch holes in shrink plastic, preferably with different sizes and not too poor quality. I used to have one that could barely make holes, and you had to trim the holes afterwords with scissors.

Lightscribe cds/dvds
Lightscribe cds/dvds for me to lightscribe on. Would love different colours! Can't get the different coloured ones here.  

Fun ring bases
...to glue things on to make finger rings. Any kind of not so plain ones, maybe patterned, filigree...


Cotton fabric with "frames" on
I am looking for fabric that consists of "frames" of some sort with a white inside. Ideal would be images of empty photo frames (if anyone has seen such a fabric, PLEASE tell me where  ), but otherwise maybe just white squares with a border of some other colour around it. I would like to use it to iron-on images in the white sqare and get the effect that the image is framed.

Thin silver (plated) wire
Silver or silver plated/gold plated wire, thinner than 0.4 mm (maybe someone can translate this into American standard?)

Square bails for making pendants
Flat metal things with a loop (preferably silver/gold or silver/gold plated) to fasten on the back of for example a marble to make it into a pendant. Something like this: https://www.rings-things.com/cgi-bin/hazel/hazel.cgi?action=detail&item=49-455-3  Ideally either 10mm or 20mm square, but also interested in other sizes.

Gold plated chain
Gold plated chain to make necklaces and other jewelry.

Silver plated finger rings
Silver plated finger rings with a large plate (1.5-2 cm?) with sides/borders (will try to find a link to make it less confusing) for crafting jewelry.

Glass thingies/plates for making jewelry
Glass thingies, especially ones with holes in them:
http://www.wholesalersusainc.com/hand-glass-shapes-rectangles-holes-40pcs-p-1325.html
Other glass shapes on the same site are also as interesting, and coloured square marbles also... Just different shaped glass thingies to put pictures behind really... and/or coloured ones for rings:
http://www.plainmabel.com/ckshop.php?item=1168&ret=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.plainmabel.com%2Fckshop.php%3Fpage%3D1%26category%3D4
(I already have enough of the "normal" round transparent ones (that you can buy in flower shops (at least here) though.)


Craft books & magazines

Book with fun/cute Japanese sewing and/or crochet patterns (when it comes to books it might be a good idea to ask if I already have the book before claiming; will try to list  the books I have soon)

Crochet books or magazines with fun new projects (not too traditional stuff). I like "Crochet today". I only have the september-october 2007 issue so far. Please ask me before you send a crochet book, since I have a few (not many) already and might have the one you want to send. (Will try to list the ones I already have soon.)

Readymade magazine (but I do have three already, will check which ones...)

MAKE: technology on your time (The only one I already have is volume  Cool

CRAFT: transforming traditional crafts (I have a couple of these, will list soon)

Craft books/magazines in general with fun new projects (not too traditional stuff) (in English or German or with easy-to-follow pictures (well, Swedish is good as well   Cheesy)


Extras

Please take a look at my supplies list. There are quite a few things there that could count as extras, depending on the amount. Would be happy for anything.   Cheesy


Please no food/candy! and I'm not too keen on batiks


 Kiss AND THANK YOU SO MUCH TO WHOEVER PICKS ME   Kiss

I'd like to claim gavagai for a surprise from her wist! List in a moment...

This is my first claim this round, 0 sent, 0 received.

Hello everyone! Im a 27 year old pharmacist from Sweden, will turn 28 the first of March. I usually think about myself as a knitter but I do a lot of different crafts and enjoy creating artsy mixed media pieces. Pincushions with fun little shrinky dink pins are also tons of fun to make. Knitting and crafting is whats keeping me sane-ish at the moment. I knit so I don't kill people XD

Purple is my favourite colour at the moment. Dark purple is my big favourite but shades of red are nice too. Colour combinations I like: red-black, red-black-silver, dark purple-silver, chocolate brown-cyan/teal, bright rainbows, red-yellow-orange/fire colours. My wists should give some ideas of colours and patterns I like too. Im a pale girl so the brighter colours work better on things like socks and things Im not going to wear near my face.

Our home decoration is mostly red-black-white and birch with a bit of grey tossed in with our dark grey sofa and some other grey furniture.

I love recycling and wouldnt mind getting second hand or thrifted supplies as long as theyre clean and not broken beyond repair. I really like how crafting can turn trash into treasure so a upgraded thriftstore find would be great to receive.

Themes and things I like: Owls, sushi, Watership down, recycling, shiny things, tea, knitting, yarrrrrrn, being warm, roleplaying/my RP-characters.

Big wishes in blue

Crafts
NEW! The perfect bar of soap. I really, really liked the Lush soap 'Twas the night before christmas but it's now discontinued. It was not just the fact that it's a lovely shade of dark purple (with glitter!), it was the scent too. It didn't have quite as overpowering smell as some of the Lush soaps, so I guess the thing that turned off other Lush-fans made me love it *longing sigh* Could any of you talented soap makers try to create something similar, or perhaps a new favourite for me?

An apron for the chef in the family (my fianc). Hes a big guy so itd have to be a large one. Perhaps with Life is like a jar of jalapenos what you do today might burn your ass tomorrow stencilled on it? Other themes that might be good are star wars, battleship galactica, order of the stick, WoW (horde), realistic airplanes and big swords.

NEW! Reusable grocery bag/market bag. Could be sewn, knitted, crocheted, fused plastic... etc.

Craft apron for me. (short with pockets) Bonus points if there's an owl on it.

Bracelet with a lot of charms/dangly beads like this. Either shades of blue (for my sister) or shades of green (for mom) or perhaps something purple and silver for me. We all have rather small wrists but I can provide exact measurements if this is claimed.

Decorated T-shirts for my fianc. 3XL US size or 5XL European size. Stencilled or perhaps embroidered or appliqud would be better than iron-on decorations since Ive had poor luck washing iron-on decorated clothes. He likes Big Dog T-shirts so something in that style would work, or see the theme suggestions above. Thank you Ewulotta! I'll leave this up since he deserves many pretty t-shirts.

Funny/cute magnets for my fridge. I really like miniatures so miniature food (or other miniatures) on magnets would be great.

Baby stuff. Some people I love are spawning so if you love creating adorable baby things I can gift them to a deserving baby. Baby is due in May. (Ideas for themes: Gnomes/dwarves, library/book related, mushrooms/toadstools)

Scented sachets for my yarn stash and clothes in any textile craft (embroidered, quilted, crocheted, knitted, whatever!) If you want to be able to send a flatter package I could fill them myself. Thank you claire313!

An altered puzzle, or altered puzzle turned into a frame perhaps? Or altered puzzle piece magnets?

A project bag for embroidery projects. This would also be for my fianc so something stylish and not overly feminine. thank you zombiecass!

Cloth pads in fun fabric. They dont have to be fancy or very thick and they usually stay in place without wings/fastening for me. I dont need heavy duty stuff but I like them rather long. My favourite kind is just two squares of fabric sewn together and then folded to get the right shape.

Shower/beauty items. I like handmade soaps and bath/beauty things but I dont own a bathtub... Not too strong scents, please. Thank you lapoli!

A happy shower cap. The brighter the better! Feel free to embellish with huge fake flowers and the like as long as it survives chlorinated pool water. (Here's a turorial I found)

Crochet hook roll. The few hooks I have are always missing when I want them =) Thank you claire313! Ive recently got some larger hooks so I could use a second one with rather large slots for the hooks.

Poly clay covered hooks. I like hooks with thicker handles so thick pretty handles must be perfect!

A ceramic yarn bowl.

NEW! Shallow bowls for sushi soy. Can be handmade or store bought and painted/decorated as long as they are food safe.

A pair of hand knitted socks for me. I know this might not be a medium item for you (it sure isnt for me!) but if you are a quick knitter and would like to knit a pair for me I would be extremely grateful. My shoe size is US 7-8 I think, but Ill measure properly if this wish is picked. Thick or thin socks, either is fine.

A mail organizer. We need somewhere to put our mail and bills (the pile inside the door is not working). Im thinking some kind of wall hanged thing with 2-3 pockets perhaps? The room this is going to hang in has white walls and dark purple furniture/curtains.

A magic yarnball with a beginner crochet pattern. I got an awesome MYB from Casey1201 and now I think Im addicted...

NEW! A set of handmade cards or stationery. I like writing letters Smiley

NEW! A hand carved stamp. I've seen so many pretty ones. I'd love one with a rabbit in the style of the Watership Down movie. The ones during the parts with "rabbit religion" and not the animated regular ones. Some pictures to show what I mean are here (first picture) and here

Or an owl stamp... I like owls too Smiley

NEW! Pretty stitch markers. There is no such thing as too many stitch markers. For crochet it's good if they can be opened, but I can use closed rings too.

Surprise me with your best craft! If you create something you love making Im sure Ill love receiving it.

A wisty surprise. (I've tried to add some jewellery and new stuff lately)

Craft Supplies
Fleece/roving that can be used for thrumming mittens. Undyed or dyed wool doesnt matter since I can kool aid dye it myself if needed. Thank you lapoli!

NEW! Hama beads/perler beads or similar. I've got plenty of black and white, but other colours are appreciated.

Cute buttons for a baby cardigan. The one I'm working on now is green and will need 4-5 buttons I think.

Shrinky dinks or shrink plastic in other colours than white and transparent.

A real wooden nostepinne. Right now I wind around a pill-tube and it's not pretty Tongue. Or if you happen to have a yarn winder you dont use Id be glad to take it off your hands. Ha ha.

Bamboo sock yarn in fun colourways. I have plenty of sock yarn already, but adding sock yarn of different fibre to your stash doesnt count right?

Im slowly overcoming my crochet fear so any hooks, pattern suggestions or other useful crochet things would be welcome. Ive found that hooks with thicker handles are easier on my hands. Used/second hand hooks and supplies are fine.

Starter kit for soap making. Melt and pour would probably be easiest since I dont feel like handling corrosive stuff...

Pretty bookmarks for papercrafting and decoupage. I like them rather small, and vintage looking if possible. And glitter is never wrong Wink

Knitting magazines or craft magazines you are done with. Pre-loved is fine. The few Ive got are listed in my ravelry library.

T-shirts for my fianc that I could decorate. XXXL or XXXXL US size. (hard to find bigger ones in Sweden...)

Extras
Tea (I drink mostly loose leaf tea, but teabags are good for bringing to work.)

Local candy (Id love to try candy corn for example, and Ive discovered that Nerds are delicious)

Small balls of leftover cotton or acrylic yarn you might have kicking around. Partial skeins/small amounts is fine as long as it's enough to at least knit something small. (for making tawashi, amigurumi and dishcloths) I'm putting this as an extra since I wouldn't want a packages stuffed with it Wink

I'm going to claim Annchen for Bracelet with a lot of charms/dangly beads like this.

First claim this round.

About Me

Greetings everyone! 32 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) or earth tones (like greens/browns together). 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

Sewing

*new* And a VERY BIG WISH! -- A Cozy Winter Wrap like this thread. (She also has a tutorial here.) The embroidery shown on it is totally optional and totally not required. Most any color would be ok (just no red/orange/yellow/pinks please.) I am ALWAYS cold and would LOVE one of these!!

 -- A simple robe. I really like this style. Doesn't have to be exactly like that but I like the Japanese/Asian/Cherry Blossom influence, but it could be other colors/patterns that I like as well. Doesn't need to be form-fitting, can be a little roomy just not too oversized. (A little roomy is fine.) I'm generally a US size 4.

 -- A day tote. There's not a thing I don't love about this one for example, but it could be in different fabrics of similar colors for example. It looks sturdy and says it has pockets and the shape is really lovely.

 -- A Weekender Type Bag. I really like this one which would be a lovely weekender bag since I don't own any luggage. (It has an almost Steampunk feel to me with the leather - which could totally be faux!) And of course, Amy Butler's pattern is neat but it wouldn't have to be in her fabric.

-- Something made from the JOEL DEWBERRY'S AVIARY ALMOND FABRIC. (Stuff like this wristlet or these potholders or this craft apron or this card holder etc. Pillows, aprons, anything! I am just in love with this fabric!

*big wish* -- Some throw pillow slip covers. I'd love to change up my throw pillows more often. What might be fun is to have some slip covers I could put over the existing pillows to mix things up now and then. I have two standard size, square pillows (I can measure for exact if you want) on my couch. My living room features a "sand" colored couch and dark "espresso" brown entertainment center with chrome accents. So browns and blues would be cool, but also like autumny colors, or earth tones or maybe even some seasonal ones. I don't know. It just seems like it'd be fun to have an assortment to change it out now and then! I'm wisting some prints I like as examples HERE.

 -- A Kate Spade Beantown Quinn Knockoff Purse. Original THIS and I first saw it HERE by JennyBear. I'd like a shorter handle like the original (maybe just enough to go over the shoulder?) and in red, green, brown or grey. It's just such a cool shape!

 *new* -- A sewing machine cover. I do own one - this one specifically - but I'm still pretty terrible. I also don't use it a lot so a nice, pretty cover would be good to keep the cat hair and dust off it.

Knitting

*HUGE wish* -- This "entrelac" style scarf in these type of earthy, natural colors. (If it were in a mix of teal blue and chocolate brown that would work too.) 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!

*big wish* -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. There are some wisted here for inspiration.

 -- A cable knit bag. I really like cable knit and I think this bag is really cool.

 -- A lightweight/lacy shawl. (Like this example. I love the delicate lace of this. I'm always cold so something to cover my arts at dinner or in the movies would be great. Could be this or other colors. Something neutral probably best.

-- Wrist warmers in a cool pattern like this one which I love.


Other

*new* -- Some crochet slipper socks like this pair. The style is so cute that they look like Mary Jane's. I wear a size 6.5 US shoe and have little feet.

 -- Fitted Style Tee Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. (Since this time of year I might get to actually wear a longer sleeve!) Fitted, size small or US 4 equivalent. I have received a ton and I love them but I also live in fitted tees and more are always welcome. I have a bunch of styles I love wisted for inspiration. thank you to everyone who's made one - I can't get enough!

*new*  -- Hand-Dyed / "Shibori-Dyed" Fitted Tee Shirts Like above, short sleeve, 3/4 or long sleeve is fine so long as it's fitted. I like styles like THESE in my wists. I especially love the flame style one but really like this type of look a lot. It's different from the shirts I typically wear and I like that. (Please just no hippie/Grateful Dead rainbow style tie dye. Nothing against hippies but it's just not my personal preference.)

*new* -- A ribbon organizer. I have a few here in my wists but something to wrangle the spools so they're not just piled all over my desk would be nice.

*new* -- A sewing basket. You know, classic little box with a handle to store my growing collection of threads, notions, scissors, etc. Like this idea/ or this one. Doesn't have to be that fabric or anything but that idea. Right now, all my stuff is just piled up in a mess on my desk.

*big wish*  -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, nightlight, glass mosaic item, etc. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself. I have a wall of sliding glass doors and a balcony to show things off.

 -- Something glass work like a vase or something. Blown or torch or whatever. A cool medium I don't know how to work with at all. This is really pretty for example.

 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or a bowl or a tea mug or whatever. Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (A couple things I've wisted for inspiration.)

*big wish* -- 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.

 -- Fused glass or glass (microscope) slide pendants you think I'd like. (Here are some wisted inspiration items as examples.)

 -- Home decor items that you think I'd like based on my wists, likes, etc. I love the chocolate brown/blue combo, I have way too many dvd's and not enough storage for them, I could use decorative storage in general, I have two kitties who would love things to play with/scratch/climb on, etc.

 -- Something with owls. I love owls, especially snowy and great horned owls.

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



Craft Supplies
 
*new* -- I really want the Wirework 2010 magazine from Bead and Button!

 -- Mini Cake Pans. How cute are these? I don't know that I *need* them per se, but they're just so darn fun.

 -- Lampwork beads. Love. Wish I could make but I'm too scared of open flame. Cheesy

 -- 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.


Extras
-- Tea! Especially fruity ones.

 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.

 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)

 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)

 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

 -- A lightweight/lacy shawl. (Like this example. I love the delicate lace of this. I'm always cold so something to cover my arts at dinner or in the movies would be great. Could be this or other colors. Something neutral probably best.


Other

*new* -- Some crochet slipper socks like this pair. The style is so cute that they look like Mary Jane's. I wear a size 6.5 US shoe and have little feet.

 -- Fitted Style Tee Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. (Since this time of year I might get to actually wear a longer sleeve!) Fitted, size small or US 4 equivalent. I have received a ton and I love them but I also live in fitted tees and more are always welcome. I have a bunch of styles I love wisted for inspiration. thank you to everyone who's made one - I can't get enough!

*new*  -- Hand-Dyed / "Shibori-Dyed" Fitted Tee Shirts Like above, short sleeve, 3/4 or long sleeve is fine so long as it's fitted. I like styles like THESE in my wists. I especially love the flame style one but really like this type of look a lot. It's different from the shirts I typically wear and I like that. (Please just no hippie/Grateful Dead rainbow style tie dye. Nothing against hippies but it's just not my personal preference.)

*new* -- A ribbon organizer. I have a few here in my wists but something to wrangle the spools so they're not just piled all over my desk would be nice.

*new* -- A sewing basket. You know, classic little box with a handle to store my growing collection of threads, notions, scissors, etc. Like this idea/ or this one. Doesn't have to be that fabric or anything but that idea. Right now, all my stuff is just piled up in a mess on my desk.

*big wish*  -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, nightlight, glass mosaic item, etc. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself. I have a wall of sliding glass doors and a balcony to show things off.

 -- Something glass work like a vase or something. Blown or torch or whatever. A cool medium I don't know how to work with at all. This is really pretty for example.

 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or a bowl or a tea mug or whatever. Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (A couple things I've wisted for inspiration.)

*big wish* -- 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.

 -- Fused glass or glass (microscope) slide pendants you think I'd like. (Here are some wisted inspiration items as examples.)

 -- Home decor items that you think I'd like based on my wists, likes, etc. I love the chocolate brown/blue combo, I have way too many dvd's and not enough storage for them, I could use decorative storage in general, I have two kitties who would love things to play with/scratch/climb on, etc.

 -- Something with owls. I love owls, especially snowy and great horned owls.

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



Craft Supplies
 
*new* -- I really want the Wirework 2010 magazine from Bead and Button!

 -- Mini Cake Pans. How cute are these? I don't know that I *need* them per se, but they're just so darn fun.

 -- Lampwork beads. Love. Wish I could make but I'm too scared of open flame. Cheesy

 -- 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.


Extras
-- Tea! Especially fruity ones.

 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.

 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)

 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)

 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin
