I claim babalina for some fabric for dresses for her granddaughter.  I'm going to try painting some for you; one of a kind!

this is claim 2, 0 sent, 0 received

About me: I am 38.  Married, with 2 girls: DD1 is 7 years old, DD2 turns a year old in August!  We have a dog, 2 cats, and fish.  I work at home as a programmer (but I am on a hiatus from work until DD2 starts preschool, or sleeping through the night LOL).  I spend my free time making art quilts, trying various techniques (dyeing, screenprinting, etc), and studying art. 
My favourite colours are purple, blue, pink, green, and all variety of earth tones. 
I love nature and natural designs, retro, and modern.

I am in Ontario, Canada.

My wist

crafts - MOST WANTED
hand carved rubber stamps (nature inspired, or patterns or symbols)
Ocean/sea creature wall art for DD2s room, in bright colours
Poppet for DD2 (embroidered eyes, please) - examples
altered art of my girls examples
a nursing necklace so DD2 will leave my eyeglasses alone examples
knitted baby sweater (size 2) examples
Dr Who shirt for DH (3XL) - Blink is his favourite episode
t-shirt for me (nature inspired) size 2XL

crafts
something from my wist
coloured pencil roll (to hold 24 pencils)
sketch pencil roll (for 12 pencils, small ruler, eraser)
sketchbook cover (I ultimately need 2 or 3 of these) - I still need to check dimensions *****
handspun yarn
Baby clothes, particularly pants with matching onesie or shirt (18 month size)
Felt food toys (nothing super small, i.e. choking size)
Other baby toys (if you have some good ideas)
Shirt for DD1, in size L (14/16) (she loves dogs, and Super Mario)
bright plushie monsters for both girls
water bottle holder for DD1 (I can give you the bottle size)

general inspirations for any craft
Anything you are good at, and enjoy making!  With a small disclaimer:  I don't have a lot of space, so things that can be used are fantastic.  A new apron? I'd love one!  Potholders, dishcloths, placemats, decorative storage boxes, all of these would be used and loved.  As would many other things, too!
Something to celebrate my name!  A few years ago I legally changed my name to Dahlia
Something inspired by a sugar skull robot - the only example I have is a picture of a tattoo lol http://www.zhippo.com/NateBeaversHOSTED/images/gallery/nate%20beavers-robo%20skull-gallery1.jpg
Something inspired by the Vintage Fairies at www.sallyjean.com  I love the creative fairy with the saying "sometimes there was a storm in her brain".  I also love the art fairies with the saying "I must make art".
Something inspired by the Salvador Dali quote in my siggie, or the Van Gogh quote "I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate"
Something inspired by the animal axolotl http://www.bogleech.com/pkmn-axolotl.jpg
Something sushi themed

craft supplies
single-ply thin white crochet cotton (I cannot find this around here, only 2-ply)
upholstery thread or button thread
recycled sari yarn or any other unique yarn
fabrics from around the world (kimono silks, african dyes & batiks, etc)
sheer fabrics for layering on wallhangings - nets, tulles, scrims, gauzes, etc. white, coloured, patterned, any would be good!
100% cotton fabrics
100% cotton machine quilting threads
any quilt magazines (except for Quilting Arts) you no longer want/need!
any art quilt books (I have Surfaces for Stitch by Gwen Hedley, but that's it)

extras
dark chocolate, particularly flavored dark chocolate
ginger anything
spicy candies

Thank you!

I claim gatheredthreads for a baby sweater! And probably a little something else.

This is my first claim for this round.

I am 20 and I am currently home for the summer in Virginia Beach, VA (USA). My style is pretty haphazard--I never coordinate anything, so my decorating style is whatever I like, all cobbled together. I love bold prints and art deco and fun colors, but I'm not a fan of pink or orange. I love dark colors, like maroon and navy. I knit like a fiend (almost constantly) and also crochet, sew, spin, and dabble in paper craft. I really want to learn weaving just to add to my crafty repertoire. I have cats and a dog at home, but not at school, and they all stay out of my crafting supplies. I don't have any allergies. PM with any questions!


Crafts:

So I moving into a university-owned apartment this school year, so what I need most are apartment things:

- A key bowl to stick by the door
- Pot holders/trivets (I love quilted ones)
- Oven mitts
-   Framed art for my boring dorm room APARTMENT! (drawing, painting, embroidery... anything really.) House, Grey's Anatomy, knitting, Futurama, or Battlestar Galactica-themed would all be awesome, as well as various generic snark, hilarity, or pretty-ness. I have some favorite quotes too, so pm if you want more specifics.
- Ceramic mugs/bowls/dishes. Pottery is one craft I know I'll probably not get the chance to do, so I love looking at other people's.
- Other homey type things I've probably forgotten (but pm first to make sure)

Here's the rest of my list:

- Padded laptop sleeve for Norah, my macbook. Not really picky as to material, but if it's argyle, I'll love you forever.
- **Big wish** A nice handbag. There are a couple of examples of my style on my wists. Something fairly plain in shape in a solid color or fun print. Fairly large (I carry everything with me), crossbody strap, lots of pockets.
-  Summer skirts. Elastic waist, about 50 cm hip to hem, a-line or flowy in something light, like a linen or a seersucker or something.
-  Weekender bag (the necessarily THE weekender bag, but a bag for traveling)
-   Handspun yarn
-   Hand-carved stamps. Pretty much anything as I have pretty much none.
-   Shawl pins/brooches.
- Something (pillow, zipper bag, but not tee cause I have one) with Team Tyler's Van on it.



Supplies

-   Roving/Top for spinning (combed or carded)
-   Zippers (any length, regular or separating, invisible or visible, any color)
-   Large buttons, preferably in sets of at least four.
-   Yarn (natural fibers only, please), especially greens (like, forest or kelly) and blues or neutrals, any weight
-   Lino carving tool thing (for carving stamps)
-   Large erasers or rubber base thingies for carving stamps
-   Thread (any color)
-   Machine sewing needles (I go through them so quickly) regular, but also leather/denim.
-   Kool-Aid/dye for yarn/roving
-   Rotary Cutter mat (I have the cutter; just need the mat)
-   Awesome fabric--abstract/geometric prints, swirls, Amy Butler-esque, or linen. I love linen. (Linen-look cotton is also great)
-   An x-acto knife/blades
-   Stamps, especially words/greetings.
-   Stamp Pads.
-   Resin kit
-   Purse handles (especially longish ones)
-  Felt (acrylic or wool, I don't mind either)
-  Shrinky dink plastic or #6 plastic
-  Wooly Nylon (for carrying along with sock yarn that doesn't have nylon or mohair)


Extras

Knitting/crocheting books (but pm first)
Paper crafting/card making books
Sewing books/magazines
Back issues of Interweave Knits, Knit1, Knit Simple or Vogue Knitting (or any other knit mags; please pm)
I'll never say no to chocolate or candies, especially gummies.

I claim Juicebox29  for arm warmers and buttons!

Hi! I'm Dana. I'm 27 years old and live in Boston. I work three jobs: case manager for elderly, counselor for teens, and manager of an improv theatre. I love knitting and am planning on figuring out how to crochet. My favorite colors/combos are: teal/brown/orange, yellow/orange, purple. I do not like white (especially for clothes) because I am clumsy and messy. I have a big fat kitty that loves cat nip. For fabrics I love vintage fabrics, gingham, fruit fabrics, and some asian prints (like cherry blossoms, but not symbols). I am not a fan or skulls. I love owls, birds, koi fish, nintendo, and sunkist soda.

brb with list

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

Hello!  Im located in the U.S. with my super fantastic hubby, one sweet kiddo and two super snuggly dogs.  I love to crochet, knit, sew and do a few other random crafts.  I dont mind getting things from pet friendly or smoking households.  Just nothing too smoke smelling or perfumy please.  I dont have allergies but those strong smells bothers my eyes a bit. 

Themes/Things I like:
Japanese kawaii, Harry potter/Gryffindor/Hogwarts, iguanas, pugs, cherry blossoms, nintendo, dragons, gryffins, burgundy/gold color combo, tattoos, Japanese craft books, tare panda, cotton yarn, any yarn, faux fur, big comfy hoodies, cupcakes, transformers, pirates


Crafted Items:

I claim Edie22 for supplies and a wisty-inspired surprise! Star Trek quote pillowcases!

Claim 1, 0 sent, 0 received

Hi, my name is Jessica, and Im really excited to be joining this swap!  Im 26, and I live in New York City, but Im from West Virginia originally.  One word to describe me is comfortable.  I am girly I love pink and I read Twilight and watch The Vampire Diaries, but Im also vulgar, and sarcastic as hell.  I cant knit, crochet, or sew, so if you can please make me something awesome that I cant make myself!  My boyfriend John and I live together with our 3 cats in an apartment where a zombie Jesus piata hangs in our living room corner, and a wall full of bookshelves is filled with all sorts of horror movies, from the really good to the really bad.  John is also into Sci-Fi, but me not so much (Fringe, however, is awesome.)  Im a big fan of anything quirky, I love musicals, and I rue the day Veronica Mars was canceled!
 
Thank you so much in advance for claiming me!

Big wishes in BOLD

Yay! Just the kind of claim I love. I'm claiming YumJello01 for a TOL pendant. Cheesy

Claim #2 of 3 currently / #2 overall / 0 sent / 0 received


About Me
33 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).
  • My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy.
  • My favorite colors for shirts/clothes are browns, greens, purples, and both heather and charcoal greys.
  • I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together
  • I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.)
  • My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes.
  • My favorite flower is the Daffodil.
  • My favorite hobbies include: reading, 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.

Crafty Wishes

 Grin = BIG WISH!

Sewing

--  Grin Grin Wrap-style pants for me! I love this type here. (tutorial on link) I'm a US size 4 (or equivalent) with a tiny 29" total inseam (yes, short legs!) Approx 28x29 measurements. Capri, or full-length is fine with me! Other examples are here, here, and here. Thanks Claire! You've inspired me to want more in other colors! *laughs*

 -- Wrap-style pants for my guy! Same concept as above but maybe a little more manly/unisex and full-length. (He's a 36x30) Cotton fabric probably best. We saw wrap pants like this in Epcot and he wanted a pair for himself. (He keeps asking me why no one has made him a pair yet!  Cheesy )

 --  Grin 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 or this wallet, or this purse etc. Pillows, aprons, anything! I am just in love with this fabric!

   -- A Day Tote/Weekender Bag. 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. I also really like this one which would be a lovely weekender bag since I don't own any luggage. And of course, Amy Butler's pattern is neat but it wouldn't have to be in her fabric.

 -- A Handlebar Bag for my bike like this concept. Doesn't have to be that fabric or anything, but I like the style. My bike is a Trek 15" unisex hybrid in black with silver accents.

 -- Fabric buckets like this! I have a great project bag now I use for my jewelry tools, but...I could use another! (Or more!) I do most of my beading/crafting on the couch and it's nice to stash things away in something like this.

-- Table Top Ironing Mat like THIS. I don't always have room to pull my full ironing board out but I usually have space on my counter or table. So this is brilliant! thanks babalina!

 -- Cute "Rockabilly" Style Dress I LOVE this style but obviously in adult size. And no pink please, it doesn't look good on me. I wear a US size 4 and could send more specific measurements too. I just love how fun and flirty it is!

 --  Grin A Cozy Winter Summer Wrap like this thread BUT lightweight. I have the most awesome warm version already but I'd love a lighter weight version for wearing in chilly air conditioning like at work as well. It's hot outside but sometimes a touch chilly inside. Not enough for a jacket, but enough your arms are a little cold.  (tutorial here) Some neutral color/pattern (grey, white, beige, etc.) would probably be easiest to wear a lot.

 -- Kitchenaid Stand Mixer Cover. I've got a few examples of ones I like here. Mine's the "Classic" style.

 -- Greek Goddess Halloween Costume like this. Yes, it's a bit early but I LOVE this costume and it would be awesome to have it made for me and my measurements instead of buying one off the shelf that never fits! Wink

 -- 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 Lapboard I really need a new one. Something comfy so I can use my heavy laptop on the couch more comfortably. I like this one a lot but it wouldn't have to be that exact color/fabric. Just the style is really useful.



Knitting

  --  Grin 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. (And yes, thick ones for around the house are perfect too!)

 -- A shrug like this style (Or another example.) Could be in a self-striping in any color I like (blues, purples, greens, greys, browns, etc.) or solid. It's the style and idea I really like. I'm flexible on the color/pattern.

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



Other

  --  Grin Grin Phoenix-colored Necklace just like this. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this piece. It's beautiful colors, it's in silver, it's just perfect. I so want this. Yes, I make jewelry but it'd be nice to have something beautiful like this made for me for a change! Wink

 --  Grin 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.)

-- Fitted Style Tee Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long 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.

 --  Grin Something stained glass - sun catcher, nightlight, glass mosaic item, etc. Anything! 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 would love to put up something pretty there! (HERE are some I've wisted for inspiration/ideas.)

 -- 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.

 --  Grin Ceramic/pottery tea mug, oversized mug, or cereal bowl (I eat cereal every single day!) or anything like that. Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (HERE are a couple things I've wisted for inspiration.)

 -- Anything with a phoenix. 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 as inspiration.

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

 -- 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, or my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like.



Craft Supplies
 
--  Grin Grin Jewelry Presentation Displays I have one in black but I need a necklace one in WHITE for photographing my work. I could also use a necklace/earring combo and a bracelet hand. These are styles I like and could REALLY use:
 - Simple Necklace: Display, necklace, leatherette, white, 10x8 inches
 - Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, necklace/earring, frosted acrylic
 - Another Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, Venus figure, opaque white, 12 x 8-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches
 - Ring/Bracelet Display, acrylic, clear frosted, 7-1/4 x 4-1/2 x 3 inch hand

 --  Grin A Red/Orange/Yellow stamp ink pad. Like the "shade of orange" one on this page or the "foliage" pad here. I'd love to have something in that blended color for easy inking of my PhoenixFire Designs return address stamp.

 -- Grin Grin Gemstone Beads I'd love to start using more faceted, briolette and other cut stones. Here are some I really am coveting.
(Listings shown are just for example of the stone.)
 -Chrome Diopside Beads - Especially teardrops or briolettes. Also small rondelles would be nice. example or example.
 - Mexican Fire Opal Rondelle Beads - example or example
 - Sapphire Rondelle Beads - In a red/orange/yellow combo. example and example
 - Any gems on my Etsy favorites - Bunches listed here

 -- 24gauge Artistic Wire in Silver - It's my favorite wire. You can find it here. I pretty much always need this.

 -- 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.

  -- 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

 -- Dichroic Glass Beads I love this mix for example. So pretty!

 -- 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. Also any 16, 22 or 24 gauge wire is in any color is always useful.

 -- Resin Starter Kit I've been curious to try these so something to get started (resin, molds, etc.) would be fun.

 -- Glass Pendant Kit I really like this one (because the copper foil tape and such is cool) but also just a starter kit like this would be good too. It doesn't have to be a ready-made kit, just the supplies would be helpful. I've made Scrabble tile pendants but not glass for lack of materials.

 -- Flat-back Pendant Bails for use in Scrabble Tile/Glass pendants and related. Like this.

 -- Jewelry Hammer and Anvil Set Now that I'm working with wire more, I'd love a jewelry hammer and anvil to flatten my wire and shape it with more control. Hammer example and anvil example. Obviously a mini anvil! Wink


Extras
-- Tea! Especially fruity ones. (Caffeinated ones are fine too for my morning cup at work!)
 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.
 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)
 -- Pineapple anything so long as it does NOT have coconut in it. (Candy, snacks, candles, body spray, etc.) Finding pure, straight pineapple is so hard!
 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)
 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin
