I claim leighi123 for -vegetarian theme shirt size 3T (no gerber or hanes brand please!) short sleeve, toys and bits and pieces for her 3 year old.

This is my first claim.

Hi all Round 64 Wish list swappers! My Name is Elaine and I live in New South Wales, Australia. I am a 30 year old SAHM with 2 beautiful girls aged 1 and 3 years old. I really enjoy crafting and have only recently discovered swapping on craftster, although Ive been using the site for years. I have really enjoyed making crafts for others and receiving their work. It seems to have given me some focus and has been helping me recover from post-natal depression. I have the swapping bug!!!!! My favourite colours are purple, silver, navy blue and I have had quite a liking of pinks since Ive had my two girls! I like Celtic and Scottish stuff (me heritage), historical stuff, cooking, reading, red dwarf, funky fitted t-shirts, my favourite animal is a lady bug.
Crafts:
   Wist surprise http://www.wists.com/?action=login_form
   Hooded Scarf http://www.etsy.com/listing/37078565/jumbo-hooded-scarf-in-woodsy?ref=v1_other_1
   Altered Laundry powder box (Im thinking a wooden box or tin with hinged lid needs to hold about 1kg powder?)
   Multiple 6x4 framed wall art like this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350188.msg4083062#msg4083062 or even nice photos in altered frames. Maybe 3-4 frames per claim? And eventually Ill collect enough and hang them together.
   Pair of 18 or 20 inch square cushion / pillow covers (a few example on my wist)
   Tree of life pendant or similar silver pendant. I ALWAYS wear a black thong & pendent type necklace and always need more!
   Wall art : example of things I like: http://alittlehut.blogspot.com/2007/05/recycling.html, http://www.etsy.com/listing/23125163/old-oak?ref=fp_feat_5, http://www.google.com.au/imgres?imgurl=http://www.lisa-designs.co.uk/images/wallart2.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.lisa-designs.co.uk/wall_art.phtml&usg=__P2zsL6OAJLRCihLYrbmu9QZMYOE=&h=587&w=497&sz=54&hl=en&start=0&zoom=1&tbnid=N0wZEgYG2RHwSM:&tbnh=158&tbnw=134&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dwall%2Bart%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DX%26biw%3D1676%26bih%3D865%26tbs%3Disch:1&um=1&itbs=1&iact=rc&dur=258&ei=fwDNTJmbMoHRcfHH4JsO&oei=ywDNTMWrBMvXcZflvZgO&esq=1&page=1&ndsp=20&ved=1t:429,r:16,s:0&tx=91&ty=73, http://www.u-createcrafts.com/2010/10/anthro-inspired-wall-art.html
   Sun hats for my girls In Australia, you can NEVER have too many sun hats. They are sleeping as I write, so if you want to try this project, then let me know and Ill get the head circumferences.
   Wooden door plaques with my girls names on them. Maybe something like Jennilocker made for this FOC Wist swap: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=353172.180    Set of inchies, ATCs or an altered puzzle that I can frame and hang on the wall. (Im am so unartistic when it comes to paper crafts its unreal!)
   Fitted t-shirt for me with cool printed/appliqued design Im an Australian size 16 on top (which I believe is a US size 14 or a UK size 16). I quite like this tree of life t-shirt http://www.etsy.com/listing/49933404/tree-of-life-t-shirt?ref=sr_gallery_20&ga_search_query=tree+of+life&ga_search_type=&ga_page=&order=&includes%5B0%5D=tags&includes%5B1%5D=title But Im open to any design.
   Clothes for my girls I love anything that is a bit different to what all the other kids are wearing we only have one decent clothes shop in town, so most kids own the same clothes around here! Let me know if you fancy this one and what measurements you might need. Oh and its summer here now so not too much fabric required for these clothes! We dont really wear pretty dresses much, would prefer more every day clothes.


Craft supplies
-   2.5 fussy cut squares for an eye spy quilt I need lots of them still! Or scraps that I can cut down to 2.5 squares.
-   Some machine embroidered images or numbers or letters  on 2.5 squares that I can incorporate into my eye-spy quilt.
-   Fat quarters or 20cm / 8-10 cuts of tone on tone fabric. So for example say Blue with blue swirls or green with green spots. (to go between the fussy cut squares I dont want plain, but dont want to distract too much from the eye-spy game either)
-   Any other quilting fabrics you have to offer even reasonable sized scraps as I do quite a bit of applique. Patterns or plains, neat or scrappy, anything goes when it comes to my stash!
-   A set of flexi-hoop (?) embroidery frames in Christmas colours or wood grain 4 round or Oval 4 by 5.5. I need 12 in total to frame some Christmas 12 days of Christmas ornaments. But maybe 6 would be a more reasonable request for a medium? http://www.craft.com.au/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=221_228&products_id=4146 or   http://www.craft.com.au/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=221_224&products_id=4137
-              Any embroidery hoops - I gave mine away for a swap! lol
-   Any buttons, as many as you can spare, odd or not.
-   Whimsical items that I can use to alter or decorate 6x4 frames like this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350188.msg4083062#msg4083062 Or even empty 6x4 frames that I can  use.
-   Empty Janome bobbins clear plastic (not metal) Not sure it makes much difference, but my machine is a DC3018 http://www.scrapdragon.com.au/picture.asp?PictureID=2689911

Other things / extras
-   Quilting magazines (second hand is fine!) or books.
-   Glitter for my girls to use for craft and art projects. It seems so expensive over here! Just need a couple of small vials in any colours.
-   Incense holder that catches the ash and incense (I like nag champa). Doesnt have to be as fancy as this one, but I do like this one!  http://thecrookedpath.net/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=117_118&products_id=1018
-   If there is space in the parcel, I wouldnt turn down some yummy treats!

Thanks in advance to whoever claims me.

I'm going to claim nilmerg for Tree of life pendant or similar silver pendant. I ALWAYS wear a black thong & pendent type necklace and always need more! Right up my alley. Wink

Claims: 2 of 3 current / 1 overall / 0 in transit / 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
NEW -- Coupon Organizer. I always have coupons but they get lost in my purse. I LOVE this style. Small enough to fit in my purse but with sections would be great.

NEW -- Grin  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.

 -- Wrap-style pants for my guy! Same concept as these but maybe a little more manly/unisex and full-length. (He's a 36x30) Cotton fabric probably best. He LOVES his pair from Claire but is jealous I have two pairs. He'd LOVE a pair in a dark blue or dark green as well.

 --  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 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.

 -- Any sewn wist item You can see all the sewing items I've wisted here.


Knitting
 -- 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.

 -- Any knitted wist items. You can see all the wisted knit items here.


Other
NEW -- Grin Grin Hand Carved Deer (Buck) Stamp - I LOVE this. I'd love one just like it - large in size like it too - specifically for the same use; making Yule cards.

 --  Grin Batik/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 in V-neck, scoop or whatever (just nothing that's so low cut it requires another shirt underneath) in size small or US 4 equivalent. (I like the ones from Target a lot but am open to others too!) 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.

 --  Stained Glass Item - 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.)

 --  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.

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists or my amazon wishlist, my etsy favorites, the colors I like, my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like! I KEEP MY WISTS UPDATED SO IF IT'S ON THE LIST, I WANT IT! Cheesy
Please Note: I AM in two Christmas Swaps right now which is why there are a lot of Christmas Items on my Wist!


Craft Supplies
--  Grin Grin Jewelry Presentation Displays I have one in black but I desperately need a necklace one in WHITE for photographing my work. I could also use a necklace/earring combo and a bracelet hand. Used ones in good shape are fine too! Any kind of leather/leatherette/vinyl is awesome. These are examples of 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 Grin Gemstone Beads I'd love to use more faceted, briolette and other cut stones. Here are some I really am coveting.
(Listings shown are just for example of the stone. Can easily be smaller quantities for more reasonable cost!)
 - Any gems on my Etsy favorites - Bunches listed here
 -Chrome Diopside Beads - Especially teardrops or briolettes or rondelles would be nice. Example
 - Mexican Fire Opal Rondelle Beads - example or example
 - Hesonite Garnet - example
 - Sapphire Rondelle Beads - In a red/orange/yellow combo. example or example

 -- 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 and any 16, 22 or 24 gauge wire is in any color is always useful. (Especially if it's silver-plated!) The Artistic Wire brand is my favorite.

NEW -- Jewelry Hammer and Mini 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

NEW --  Grin Puffy Heart Pendant Instructions/Kit I've wanted to learn how to make this forever! Bonus would be if I had some of the materials needed as well like the stringing material. There's a full kit HERE and another HERE which is totally helpful and even more awesome!!

NEW -- Button Maker I think it'd be fun to make my own buttons. Some sort of starter kit would be great. I've never made any before. Can totally be used/pre-owned!



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!
 -- Beading/Wire-Wrapping/Jewelry magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

I claim LoveoftheDark for paper and Creepy Art. This will be fun!

This is my first claim this round.

About Me: I'm 30 (gulp) and I'm in now living in NJ (double gulp). I'm currently working as a nanny, baking up a storm, and reading lots of books. Oh yeah, and Im totally, finally, oh-my-goodness pregnant  Grin Due in March! No more fighting off the baby fever! I love chocolate, the ocean and the beach, books, live music, thrifting, vintage, shiny things, and soft things. I love tights and knee socks, I collect recipe cards, old handkerchiefs, tea cups, ephemera, vintage scarves, cookbooks, old books, and aprons. There is a lot more info in my blog (see the link in my signature!) I love many styles, but nothing country or overly cutesy.

Wishes:
Crafted stuff:

- A unisex baby quilt with fabric like Amy Butler, Michael Miller, Anna Maria Horner, Freshcut, etc. No need for real designer labels, its just an idea of styles I like.

- Any how-to or sugar art kits, books, and supplies (think sculpy, but edible!)

and many etsy faves here: http://www.etsy.com/people/jojobeandesigns
Or feel free to check my blog for ideas!

I claim Banga for a large wet bag & bookmark! Smiley

1st claim this round; 0 sent; 0 received

I'm Sarah & I'm a stay-at-home mom in Chicago. I have 2 sons: Cooper, 3, & Dexter, 1. In my previous life I was a lawyer for abused & neglected kids & someday maybe I'll do that again. I'm a proud & public extended breastfeeding mommy and we use cloth diapers. In general, I try to be as green (& as frugal) as possible. If I had any more free time I would enjoy cooking & reading, but it's been a while since I've had any real time for either of those!

I love orange. I'm not a huge fan of purple. I like everything else. I probably don't like neons too much. I LOVE batik & ombre stuff. I have way too many, but I still adore bags. I dont carry a regular purse, but I adore messenger style bags. I love Dr. Seuss (especially Oh, The Places You'll Go) & I really like whimsical designs. I prefer useful items to knick knacks, especially because we're trying to declutter in preparation for moving. I also love citrus (as food and as a theme or fabric). Id love anything for my kitchen to be citrus themed Smiley

I'm starting to collect gifts for Christmas, so some of the stuff on my list is for gifts, but most of it is stuff for me 'cause I've had a rough year & I deserve it!! LOL

We have no allergies, but I get migraines from cigarette smoke so I'm very sensitive to that. Other than that, I try to avoid nuts & artificial sweeteners, and the smell of patchoulli & vanilla (although I don't imagine any of that would be an issue!).

I think most of my items are mediums, but I have a few larges (or maybe extra larges) on here too... just in case Smiley


Crafts

***SUPER BIG WISH*** a shrug similar to these
The brown one is most like what Im looking for, but maybe something less bulky & more fitted (maybe stretchy). A large & simple stitch would be fine!

NEW **Big wish**
A mini hammock hanging between palm trees. This would be a Christmas gift for my husband to remind him of our honeymoon in Jamaica & Id like him to be able to keep it on his desk at work. Im thinking polymer clay with a string hammock, but Im open if you have other ideas. (Im not sure if this is a medium cause I really dont know anything about polymer clay.)

**Big wish**
* Kids coat rack (the kind that hang on the wall & have pegs or hooks). I adore this.

**Big wish** A medical alert bracelet or tag for my husband, who has Type 2 Diabetes. This one is cool.

NEW * Tree of Life pendant for my SIL for Christmas. Maybe black, or black & red (her favorite colors), or the birthstones (or really just the colors of them) for September & October (her & hubbys bdays are in Sept & they married in Oct).

* I could really use a nice wallet. I have several on my wist. I really need one that will hold LOTS of cards & stuff.

NEW * An apron for me. I have some I like on my wist. I would also love a citrus themed apron Smiley

* Kids storage/organization stuff. I adore everything on this site (but not the pink girly stuff).

* Natural moth balls. Theres a tutorial here and some on Etsy here, but Im fine with any version (as long as it works!).

* A gift for my brother (for Christmas) - Id love something inspired by the Old Spice commercials, or possibly the most interesting man in the world, or Chuck Norris. An amigurumi character would be great.

* Educational or imaginative games/toys for the kids. Cooper always loves the alphabet & animals & is currently obsessed with maps. We love The Hungry Little Caterpillar & books by Sandra Boynton, particularly the little Pookie books, so anything inspired by those would be great.

* Dress up items for Cooper (& eventually Dexter). We already have a superhero cape & an apron. Playsilks would be great too.

* Handknit socks (size 9)

* Hand spun/hand dyed yarn (I'm just starting to crochet!)

* Tie dye socks (shoe size 9, preferably rainbow)

* Removable crochet stitch markers

* Polymer clay wrapped crochet hooks (any size)

* A personalized busy book for my soon-to-be-1-year-old son Dexter (Cooper has a personalized one already & we have another one too & love them both. We can't get enough!)

NEW * Cupcakes in a jar (no nuts please)


Supplies


NEW * Solid color short sleeve button up boys shirts (hand-me-downs or thrifted are fine) in size 4T, XS or S. I plan to use them to make uniform shirts for me sons for dress up (police man, delivery man, etc)
* Beginner crochet kit (with a tutorial would be great!)
* Yarn - preferably natural fibers. I'm just starting to crochet so any crochet supplies are appreciated. Smiley
* Medium/heavy weight iron on interfacing
* Knit fabric. Maybe jersey or interlock, but anythings probably good. I prefer solid, darker colors. Black or grey would be great.
* Anything for storage of sewing supplies. I have lots of ribbon (on spools & loose), thread, elastic, zippers, velcro, & other odds & ends that need spiffy new (or new to me) homes.
* snap press (used is fine!)


Extras

* Clear plastic bags from packages of bedding, onesies, shower curtains,etc. I plan to use them as project bags.
* Pink grapefruit tea
* Hot chocolate (I dont like dark or white chocolate)
* Candy - anything that's not spicy or very sour. I also like milk chocolate (I dont like dark or white chocolate)
* Good diabetic recipes (basically low cal, low fat, low carb, and no artificial sweeteners); we recently found out DH has Type II Diabetes
* Bento stuff - boxes or accessories
* used or thrift clothing with fabric I can use (interesting  prints or textures or corduroy).
* fabric scraps


THANKS! Smiley

I claim padfoot for a serenity logo box


64:
claims: first this round  sent: 0 received: 0


Hi there!

My name is Jess and I'm a 26 year old SAHW living in Ontario, Canada. I'm not girly in the slightest - I prefer geeky things and tend to stay away from things like jewelry and clothing.

My favourite colours are red and black, followed up by pink, and then deep/dark colours in blue, purple and green.  My favourite pattern is spider webs.

I DO NOT like: yellow, orange, neon colours, paisley patterned things.

Some themes I enjoy: Super Mario, Spiders, Alice in Wonderland, Snail Mail, Coraline, old DOS games (my favourite is Ultima!), Steampunk, Invader Zim, Voodoo, General witchery, Xena, legends and mythology.

Some links you might find useful:

I will claim Padfoot for a felix the cat shirt and I will attempt to find some fabric for jammie pants for Padfoot in the fabric she wants Smiley it is getting cold in NC now  Cry


  3/1/1

 Hello all,
       I am Monica your crazy organizer. I am totally in love with my grand-kids, my dogs and even my DH LOL. I have been married 16 years and been raising my grand-kids almost the last 2 of the They are almost 6 year old girl and 2 1/2 year old boy too cute and super fun and they keep us young We live in the last bank of the outer banks of North Carolina. We are on Black Beard the pirates land too cool...We are very Pirate in this area. We hunt, fish a lot, and really have a lot of fun. We are an outdoorsy family and the kids love the beach and searching for treasure on it!

  I am very edgy and girly at the same time. I love Pin up girls, sugar skulls, mermaids, pirates, and even mod but do not care for items that really have no use as I am really cramped here,
I don't ware dark colors or neon Blah...I love pinks, sea green, light blue, yellow, white, lavender, off red not red red , sand, yellow, brown, blues to name a few just think beach girl but it is getting cold so the shoes are not flip flops for me now Sad

 Dislikes:Kelly green!! My grandson is Autistic and this color is ok as an accent but not as anything that has a lot of it or a shirt that sort of thing. I dont like Tyedye, Andy Warhol and neon, Hate puff 3-D paint and foil iron on's and most of all it makes me crazy when you get something that is made with pet hair dried into the paint creepy stuff there

We have a MAJOR smoke allergy here so If you smoke inside please pass me by and if you smoke outside please wash hands before crafting it is not the smoke she is allergic to it is the tar like stuff that stays on the hands and we don't like smoke anyway ~gag~

I claim our lovely organizer, Babalina, for a beautiful adult knit hat with a fabulous bow.   Wink


This is my 2nd claim/ 0 Sent/ 0 received.

HI!  This is my first OWS and I am excited and nervous at the same time!!  My name is Nicole.  I live in Wisconsin, USA.  I'm allergic to ALPACA!!! Also to mildly allergic to dogs, bees, the color PINK (yuck!), people that litter, most metals and synthetic fragrances. Cigarette smoke is nasty and gives me migraines. Think of all the craft supplies you could buy if you quit smoking!!  My favorite colors are food colors: olive, mustard, eggplant and I also wear a lot of black and navy.  I don't like pastels.  I am married, have three boys (10,6,3) and my dearest kitty, Izzy, recently passed away.  (I'm devastated, she was my little love.)  


Crafted Wishes:
-Something warm.  haha, I'll let you run with this one.
-Ornaments.  NOTHING religious.
-A floppy, knit hat.
-Handmade paper.
-Personalized stationary.  
-**A recipe box that holds 4x6inch cards.
-ANYTHING from my wists.  (Most items have comments about them...why I like it or other ideas.)  http://wists.com/elociNNicole
-An 'ugly' Christmas vest.  haha.  Repurpose a vest like Christmas threw up all over it.  (Like something a crazy old lady would wear.)
-**A stuffed Warehouse Mouse for my 3yo.  (He loves Imagination Movers and I can't find a mouse anywhere!!)
-Miniature paintings like this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/26996313/cherry-original-miniature-painting-with?ref=fp_feat_10 I'd love a few of these with different subjects.
-A handmade bookplate stamp.  (Message me with what I'd like it to say...our last names...)
-My ETSY faves are almost better than my wists.  ANYTHING from my favorites: http://www.etsy.com/people/elociNNicole/favorites?ref=pr_faves
-I LOVE scarves.  Especially fabric ones.  See wists or etsy faves for ideas.
-2 'matching' cuffs.  One that says LEFT and the other says RIOT (my wrists are 7")
-**An embroidered piece that looks like my recently deceased kitty.  I miss her so much!  (I've got a ton of pics.)
-Art quilt for the wall.  I'd love a tree with 3 apples on it.  Not too country though.  I'll leave the rest up to you.
-Handmade 'Recycle' stamp.  I'd prefer the symbol over the written word.
-Hand-dyed roving.  (no alpaca)
-Handspun yarn. (no alpaca)
-An obi belt.  Black fabric, or a reversible one would be awesome too.
-Not sure how it would ship, but I'd love a terrarium.  
-Fisherman style wrap pants.  
-A cover for my Kitchenaid stand mixer in a solid color.  (White or chocolate brown)
-Decorative pillows.  Browns, tans and beiges.
-Thrummed hat.
-Fragrance beads.  (Vanilla scented)
-An embroidered piece of a paisley print.  
-Raw Honey.  A total longshot... If you have bees, I'd love some of your/their raw honey.  
-A new lunch bag for my husband.  This would have to be a little bit bigger than the norm.  He takes food in the plastic storage containers and heats it at work.  I can give approx measurements.
NEW-A winter wreath for my door.  Snowflakes would be perfect so I can keep it up longer than just for the holidays.
NEW-An autumnal wreath for my door.  Something harvest related, fall leaves, mums...


Supplies:
-**Wooden embroidery hoops....any sizes, the more the merrier.  (I've been keeping the work framed in the hoops so I've noticed my supply quickly decrease.)-Wool Yarn
-Craft felt...any colors, any blends.
-I have a Sizzix Big Kick and I'd love dies for it.  Especially snowflakes, holiday themes, LEAVES, geometric shapes. (I have circles already)
-**A frame/stretcher for silk dying.  (I have the scarf blanks, the gutta, the dye but no frame to stretch the work out on.  )
-The wooden mannequins used for figure drawing, I LOVE those.  I've always wanted a hand one.  (The animal ones are also pretty rad.)
-Snowflake stickers.  (I'll need a bunch for my holiday cards.)
-Blocking pad and pins.
-Yarn.  No fun fur or other novelty yarns please...I just won't use them.
-Those empty, clear glass ornaments you can fill.  
-Self-striping sock yarn in very bold colors.
-This pattern:  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-hudson-hat and maybe some yarn that would be appropriate for this.  (Bright, bold colors.)
-Yarn ball winder (longshot, I know.)
-Cotton fabric to be embroidered on.  (Solids, big pattern prints and small pattern prints...all is welcome)
-Vanna's Choice 100% acrylic, Worsted weight yarn.  I can't get enough of the eggplant color.  (specifically called 'Purple' Color 147)  I'd happily give any color a home.

EXTRAS:
-I'm a coffee junky.  I'll happily consume an unflavored sampling.  Especially if it's a local roaster.
-I love DARK chocolate.  
-Recipes.  I'm always looking for new ideas and love receiving them hand written on recipe cards. (4x6)

Anything new, I'll note 'NEW' in front of it.
