Hello, I'm Rachel Kristen, I live in good old Pennsylvania in the Skook only known for Yuengling Beer and when supposedly Beyonce was moving here  Roll Eyes
I'm 21 and currently studying at a University for graphic design and maybe a fine arts minor if I get my act together this semester. I love anything green!  I love greens, blues, browns and black and purple colors and a bit of yellow. I'm not really a huge fan of red but subtle hints of it are A okay in my book. I love anything that looks retro, especially clocks. I have a modern aesthetic and don't really like anything country themed or too 'cutesy' I really like things with hex signs too! Or distelfinks! Stuff I tend to shy away from are knitted socks and decorative statues, I have to move my stuff alot so almost everything has to be functional.
Due to my parents splitting up, unless I move in with my bf next year I'm going to find myself homeless haha so we're moving in together, about two years early. We both own nothing useful besides plates and stuff for our dorm rooms. So my supplies/crafted items list is going to be pretty random Smiley

My wist list has a bunnnnch of stuff I would love but here is some stuff I would love to get too!

Crafted:
~oven mitts
~pot holders
~apron (half or full)
~kitchen towels

~dishrags
~re-usable 'paper' towels or unpaper towels
~homemade soap
~decorated kitchen mugs
~wall art or any kind of small art, ATC a bunch of inchies
~blank homemade journal preferably unlined
~any kind of recycled paper put together for a repurposed/altered journal
~yoga mat bag
~A large sturdy tote for me to carry heavy art supplies in, I really like bright patterns similar to vera bradley or a scrappy looking quilt kind of texture
~rag rug/toothbrush rag/any kind of rug
~toothbrush holder
~paper towel holder
~place mats
~spoon rest for cooking utensils
~glass jewelry or beads that I can wear to work (I'm trying to look more professional and grown up  Grin )
~mousepad
~matching coaters (maybe not even matching themed?)
~serger cover for a singer serger
~wristlet for cell phone and misc. cards and ID
~knitted/chrotched swiffer pads
~cloth napkins
~a whisk
~recipe book or cards, stuff a college student can make with a very very limited budget would be lovely Smiley


If you think of anything kitchen related or house related you would find useful that i can't think of I'm going to say go for it, I'm not choosy and anything is welcome Smiley


supplies:
~paint
~crayons
~colored pencils
~sketchbooks
~Fabric! We don't have ANY fabric stores around me anymore most of them are an hour away and too far to just make a special trip, anything with prints on them and are brightly colored are wonderfully wonderful!
~paper, scrap bookpaper, vintage looking paper photo paper, watercolor paper ripped paper scraps I'm not picky
~old picture frames, preferably plain wooden ones to put my art in
~those squares you use to make pot holders, I can't find them anywhere anymore and my plastic one broke from when I was a kiddo, a used one you don't want is fine
~sharpies
~latch rug canvas, larger size for a floor rug, I can't find these anywhere anymore and I want to tackle a small carpet

random:
~scarfs, knitted, chrocheted or just something you have laying around and don't want
~Russian nesting dolls, I collect them Smiley
~clocks, I love 'em!

Thank you so much for looking me over and thank you thank you thank you even more if you want to craft for me!

« Reply #33 on: January 12, 2011 02:46:00 PM »

Hello.  I am puzzler and I live in Connecticut, US.  I like simple and useful things.  I love the idea that something was re-purposed or recycled, so if you can be green while crafting something for me- that would be wonderful. Please don't send me anything pink.  Thank you! Smiley

Medium:

Organizer for crochet hooks and/or  knitting needles they can be separate, but maybe they can be combined somehow, so that I can keep all of them together and not look for them as often?

Hello!  I love to knit and sew, and Im new to embroidery.  I currently live in Wisconsin, so warm things are always appreciated!  I have a retired racing greyhound who loves small, soft blankets and natural toys.  

My aesthetic is very minimal--I try to surround myself with simple, beautiful, natural things.  William Morris said it best:  Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.  

I love natural colors and materials, especially organic and sustainable, and various shades of grey, blue, green, and brown (and lovely clear red).  I'm also loving orange lately--bright, clear oranges (more red than yellow)--and soft teals.  

I also have a huge list of wists and a pretty extensive etsy favorites.  Thank you!

shawl or wrap - i love shawls or wraps of any kind, sewn or knit, dyed, embellished, whatever.  there are many, many examples on my wistsfeel free to experiment with my wists and likes in mind.

modern laminated-fabric placemats

tea towels -- embroidered, embellished, stenciled, or vintage-style.  seriously, i love tea towels of any kind!

embroidered hankies for hubby:  themes could be agriculture (he would be soo happy with an old-fashioned hand plow, a mule or goat, or any kind of old-timey farming image), star wars, battlestar galactica, firefly, alien, etc.  


bags and organizers

zip pouches of any kind, large and small!  perhaps embroidered linen, or fun modern fabrics?

Hi all, My Name is Elaine, I live in New South Wales, Australia. I am a SAHM with 2 beautiful girls aged 1 and 3 years old. My favourite colours are purple, silver, navy blue, khaki green and dark brown (but NOT Camo). I have had quite a liking of pinks since Ive had my two girls! I like Celtic and Scottish stuff (my heritage), historical/ archaeological stuff, cooking, reading, red dwarf, funky fitted t-shirts, my favourite animal is a lady bug. I prefer not to receive items that are gold, of religious nature, explicit or nudity thank you. We have no allergies, but prefer our crafts to arrive smoke and pet hair free but as long as you smoke away from your craft and you dont let your pets sit on your knitting then we should be ok!

Crafts:
   Wist surprise  wist -
   Altered Laundry powder box - Im thinking a tin or maybe a wooden box with hinged lid needs to hold about 1kg powder?
   Wall art : example of things I like: this , this, this  and this
   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.
   Door plaques with my girls names on them. Maybe something like Jennilocker made for this FOC Wist swap: door plaque
    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  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. It is summer here at the moment, but I'm thinking something for the comming winter would be great
   Earrings I usually wear silver (type) stud earrings no danglies. When I was younger, you could pick up pretty cheaply a huge assortment of earrings spiders, pot leaves(!), elephants, flowers etc. I would love some new ones as many of mine are nearly 15 years old! They dont need to be pairs as I usually wear odd earrings anyway! These and these are very cute.  
   An Embroidery hoopla Im a bit late to join this craze, but I wouldnt mind starting a hoopla wall, I have a couple of examples of what I like on my wist.
   Pendants necklace I am always wearing a pendant  type necklace on a just longer than choker length black thong. I have quite a collection which has grown nicely since Ive started swapping on craftster, but I always need more. Anything goes, although not too big and I would ALWAYS choose silver over gold. (doesnt have to be real silver, Im not allergic to anything). I really like the glass pendants that Dawl makes, especially the row of flowers one. There are a few examples on my wist

Craft supplies
   I have just started making inchies and I have a black sharpie, but would love some sharpies in other colours (particularly brown!) Anything else to help my new found inchie creative streak would be appreciated
   2.5 fussy cut squares for an eye spy quilt I need lots of them still! Or scraps of fabric with identifiable objects 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 I-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!
   Any buttons, as many as you can spare, odd or not.
   Empty Janome bobbins clear plastic (not metal) Not sure it makes much difference, but my machine is a DC3018 example

Other things / extras
   Quilting magazines or books, second hand is fine.
   If there is space in the parcel, I wouldnt turn down some yummy treats! I love mint chocolate (but make sure you wrap it well as it's summer here and if tragedy happened I wouldn't want it to melt onto your creation!)
   Have you ever taken an artistic photo? - that one in a million that just looks great - I'd love a copy. Even a 6x4" would be great.
   Incense holder that catches the ash and incense (I like nag champa). Doesnt have to be as fancy as the one Ive linked, but I do like this one!


Thanks in advance if you pick me!

I'm Victoria- soon to be 22, living at my folks with a fianc who's currently undergoing selection for the British army. I work in a library in a sleepy seaside town, and I got my undergraduate degree in English Literature this summer, after trying to write about comic books and nothing but as much as possible  Grin I'm thinking about a masters degree in either information science, museums or japanese media, but for now, I'm taking a loooong break from study, learning to embroider, play the ukulele, use my sewing machine, and rollerskate!

i'm not allergic to anything i know of, although i do suffer from migraines so sometimes struggle with things whihc are heavily scented or neon coloured

things i'd like-

anything at all to do with Little Big Planet- it's a love that my fianc and I both share, so I tend to make him ami's etc. and then wish I'd kept some for myself Tongue

anything to do with DISNEY!
my faves are Lilo and Stitch, Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland (both the animation and Tim Burton's version), Peter Pan, and Up. I'm in love with Burton's Cheshire Cat (voiced by Stephen Fry <3) and Lotso Huggin (the bad guy from toy story 3). I'd especially love to receive plushies (if i got a poppet, i'd just about die!) amigurumi, or embroidery for my hoop wall. but anything themed around disney would be great by me!

anything with tentacles- particularly embroidery, some polyclay earrings, or a big freakin' plushie tentacle!

anything pin-up inspired, especially British and American WWII style. could be wearable, or not

a pair of spats! preferably sort of beat-up and apocalyptic-looking

a pair of painted shoes (i'm a UK size 6.5/7)

eric from true blood. um, i mean, anything to do with eric from true blood!

deco sweets- fake 'kawaii' foods, like macaroons or cakes or cookies, made from poly clay and silicone stuff

a shrine of any kind! i absolutely love altered art

anything to do with roller derby- i got some skates for my birthday and i've fallen over more times than i can count  Cheesy but i'm persevering!

anything to do with comics- tank girl, watchmen, and the league of extraordinary gentlemen in particular. i especially love delirium from Sandman (would LOVE a plushie or some embroidery!!)

anything at all to do with circuses, carnivals and freak shows.

anything 'old west'- more Deadwood than Little House on the Prairie, but other than that i don't know what i have in mind!

anything Viking or Roman inspired

bookplates

non-crafted/supplies-

bento supplies!

anything that i can use to make my own deco sweets- molds, silicone gel etc

fabrics, especially disney and alice themed ones, from japan- there many examples on my wist

any whimsical odds and ends i can use as i experiment with altered art

pretty coloured crochet hooks- we can't get any around here!- and coloured duct tape

peanut butter candy!

anything to get me started in book binding- this is something i'm dying to try, but i have no idea at all where to begin!

any books or other guides on how to sell/market your crafts

any craft books or patterns in japanese

any sublime stitching patterns

any comic books- i like to cut them up and use the pictures!


i have a pretty huge wist here- http://www.wists.com/annachronism - and a flickr account that acts in a similar way (PM me, i think it's only searchable under my email address)

lots and lots of thank you's for choosing me!
