I claim fiorinda for something steampunk/neovictorian
Send by May 16

2 Claims outstanding, 0 Claims in Transit, 0 Claims Received

My name is Emma and live in MI USA, working and going to school to get my degree in art! My schedule can be kind of hectic at times, but I love to slow down and craft to Netflix all day. I am a complete jeans and tshirt kind of girl, really laid back and generally I don't bite  Wink

I have fallen deeply in love with embroidery. I love 3-D and mixed media effects with it, as well as simple beautiful line drawings. I love almost every color of the rainbow, except pastels, neons, and too much pink. Right now my favorite colors are typically deep blues and teals, leafy green, and reds that range from maroon to fire engine red. I love the use of colored backgrounds, as well as beautiful natural linens, and have a collection of wooden hoops that I'd like to continue with (metal is ok too, but plastic isn't my fave). There's also a bunch of ideas and inspiration on my profile and wist.

I love snarky humor! Adult themes and language are A-ok though not required. Lately I've been fascinated with steampunk designs, surrealism, and Teesha Moore style art. I'm a quirky weird kind of person and love the unusual and strange.

Here are my themes!

1. anatomical hearts
2. sideshow/oddities (would love a bearded woman or tattooed lady)
3. monochromatic in reds
4. day of the dead
5. Incorporating this quote "I'm pretty sure there's a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking. And I plan on finding out what that is."
6. oujia/fortune telling
7. steampunk
8. inspired by surrealist Rene Magritte

Thanks for whoever claims me!

I claim Florinda for cute birds
Sending by 16 May

Hi, I'm in Australia and I'm a high school art teacher (this is my first year after a career change from journalism).

I love Super Mario (expecially Goomba), karate, writing, reading, books, drawing, socks, tea, nailpolish, propaganda, Chairman Mao, Tibetan culture and language, silliness, quirkyness, skeleton keys, photography, SBS newsreader Li Lin Chin and travel. I have a travel map and Asia has so many pins in it that it's becoming quite rediculous. I'm going back in June.
 
Please don't post meat, bark, wood, seeds, dried fruit, plant material (or anything else listed on http://www.daff.gov.au/aqis/mail/cant-mail). It's not so relevant to this swap but I've had all the previous mentioned things confiscated from swap packages. It's not fun for anyone involved.
 
I'm vegetarian. I'm also passionate about Fairtrade. Probably not themes for a hoop, just something of interest.

Small hoops are A-ok with me.

Themes
~Karate. I love my martial arts
~Quotes:
The ultimate aim of Karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in the perfection of the character of its participants. ~ Gichin Funakoshi
Karate begins and ends with respect. ~ Anko Itosu
~Propaganda
~Chairman Mao (either propaganda or doing something silly and out of character)
~Birds (especially parrots, wading birds, green or white budgies, rainbow lorikeets, eclectus parrots, peacocks)
~Bonsai
~SBS newsreader Li Lin Chin
~SPECIAL REQUEST: The Chinese characters 'Nanyang' 南阳 The place I lived in China. 'Nan' must come before 'yang' ie. nan on the left if you're doing them horizontal or on the top if you're going vertical.
Links to the individual characters:
Nan: http://www.nciku.com/search/zh/detail/%E5%8D%97/1310753
Yang: http://www.nciku.com/search/zh/detail/%E9%98%B3/1317637
If you want to add two more characters you could also add Henan - which is the province Nanyang is in (http://www.nciku.com/search/zh/detail/%E6%B2%B3%E5%8D%97/136514). I know characters can be difficult so please, please ask for help if you have questions.


Fave colours: Black, silver, dark purple, turquoise, green, red, blue
Dislike: Pink, pastels, orange (although feel free to use them as part of a design), button art, cutsey owls. I'm also not much into girliness/frills/lace etc. Please don't send witch/wicca/pagan themed material or tarot, ouija, new age stuff. I'm also not into patriotism/nationalism.

I claim Schnerby for The Chinese characters 'Nanyang'
Send by May 17th

2 Claims outstanding, 0 Claims in Transit, 0 Claims Received

My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, dog, cat, rabbit, and frogs.

I have a huge wall set aside for hoops and it has had many beautiful additions from swapping, but there is a ton of room left to fill. I'm happy with any size or shape hoop.

I am a huge fan of Firefly/Serenity, steampunk, the color blue in all shades. I'm trying to make our house feel something like a beach cottage (even tho we are about 30 minute drive from the Chesapeake bay) but the house has more of an overstuffed, cluttered, lived in feel.

Themes:
1. beach or ocean themed (ie, beachfront, boats, shells, waves, octopi etc)
2. Steampunk (maybe a variation of Urban Thread's clockwork fae or steam motifs airship or steam nouveau)
3. Meowth or Team Rocket (from Pokemon)
4. blackwork
5. monochromatic in blues
6. a mini cross stitched quilt (any pattern)
7. silly frogs/tree frogs/faerie frog
8. The letter K or L
9. Anything at all that inspires you

Thank you!

I'm claiming Averia for something ocean-y. Smiley

Sending before May 17 (it'll be WELL before).

This is my first claim... so, 1 outstanding, 0 in transit, 0 received


Hello!! My name is Nicole and I live in Michigan with my husband, four cats, and my Pomeranian Eevee.

I'm really easy to please- the only things I really do NOT like are clowns, horror/gore, or anything too frilly/girly.

I am a MEGA-HUGE Harry Potter fan. I love to read, listen to music, and (obviously) craft. I also love nature and animals. I love rainbow, and most any colors (not huge fan of pastel pink or neon colors).


Themes:

1) Harry Potter anything. Seriously. Much love forever. I'm a Hufflepuff, in case it matters. Smiley
2) I'd love a cross-stitch hoop version of this t-shirt: http://www.annarbortshirtcompany.com/162-Super-Mega-Foxy-Awesome-Hot-printed-shirt (I know that's really specific and not really a theme per say...)
3) Day of the Dead
4) Sewing/embroidery/crafty-ness
5) Reading/book related stuff
6) Anything based off my wists: http://www.annarbortshirtcompany.com/162-Super-Mega-Foxy-Awesome-Hot-printed-shirt  Just let me know what you pick so I can remove it to avoid doubles.  Grin
7) Mythical creatures (dragon, mermaid, phoenix...)

*I'm not crazy about hoops where the background fabric has a bold pattern on it, unless the pattern becomes part of the design. Hope that makes sense...

*Any size/shape hoops are fine with me.
