Please bookmark this thread  post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything also, please bookmark the discussion and the gallery threads!

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO THE ORGANIZERS VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.  PLEASE MESSAGE BABALINA58 & Lindyv321 YOU MUST PUT IN THE SUBJECT in SUBJECT LINE referring to swap 73!!
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 72.

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. I.E. 4/1/1 = 4 claims-1 in transit-1 received by partner

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 FIFTEEN MED PER SECTION i.e. CRAFTS and SUPPLIES.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.

(Please have your list ready, this swap moves very quickly!If not I will skip you and or remove your claim!!  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 UP TO 3 wishes at one time as per the orgs discretion, others are allowed 2 wishes again as per the org dis..  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish at a time until your crafts are received for this month.  HOWEVER the orgs reserve the right to tell you that you may only claim one or two items at a time if you have had issues in the past with shipping late or poor communication etc!!
Do not choose over your given limit. If a dead stall in the thread the orgs can claim again to get this moving again as a last resort.

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 AND you have confirmation they have, NOT when you send.

***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***

we have had in the past a few swappers think it is OK to toss some crap in a box and ship it. This is NOT the swap for you as this is a HIGH QUALITY crafting swap!!


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, pintrests, ETSY etc

Sending/Communicating/Feedback:
YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS (14 days from the time you claim)TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR.This starts from the time you claim must be out the door BY the 14th day!
IF YOU DO NOT SEND A MEDIUM ITEM YOU CLAIMED FOR 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 a MIN of two+ hours of crafting time You should be able to see lite for 20-30 dollars if in an etsy type store or $20-30usd worth of store bought items )
Feedback will be given as soon as you have sent - received -posted pics but will be up to 2 weeks after the swap closed if you do not post pics and this will be noted and you might not get allowed back in the next round if you cant do this! Please take pics before you ship! This is a rule not an option!!!

IF YOU CLAIM FOR A COTTON HAT, THEN DO NOT SEND A WOOL ONE OR YOU WILL HAVE TO SEND AGAIN! You may not email a pic as a claim you may however email patterns that you have purchased for someone off the list of items they wanted.

Pay close att. to your partners allergies and wishes IF you send something that is on the list of allergies, etc you WILL be required to send again! No argument on this we cant have anymore of the swappers PM that they got something that is clearly in their list of things they HATE and or have allergies of.....


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( on the 7th day) you can and or 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
If the threads stall too long the orgs can claim to get it moving again but try not to however.


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 DO NOT JOIN THIS SWAP!!!.FEEDBACK WILL NOT BE GIVEN UNTIL YOUR PACKAGES HAVE BEEN SENT AND YOU RECEIVE AND POST PICS OR  2 weeks AFTER the swap ends as per the rules[/color]

BABALINA58 will be our organizer, in charge of your claims, Thread update and approval feedback.
LINDYV321 will be or co Organizer in charge of the gallery Smiley and to make sure things run smooth and just be her wonderful self Smiley THANK YOU LINDY FOR BEING SO WONDERFUL!

You must have your wish list saved in your computer before you make any claims as to not stall the thread Smiley

I am a surfer type ocean girl (I will be on a board again when I get my knee replaced. We live at the beach on the Crystal Coast the last bank of the famed Outer Banks of North Carolina. I love pink and girly but some edgy too. I am an ride it fast kind of girl. I drive my motorcycle year round for the most part . I love to ride and love the ocean. We are teaching the kids to ride horses and Atlanta to surf, how fun. She is a beach bum really they both are. They love to fish and hunt ( shhhh she sits in the woods with me and looks at the animals) only time she shuts up LOL...

I am into clean lines I guess as to messy, I cant stand things looking cluttered or things that are tossed together looking in my house, hair etc everything is just right before we leave the house LOL Odd I know makeup to the beach and even hunting..Odd ball huh....I am not into floral shappy look at all, hate black and when it comes to clothing I dont ware dark colors at all! I am a beacy girl and love pretty and fun things, look at my pintrest to see my style. I like most of the items there like they are and have noted colors etc there.

We have 2 beautiful grandkids that my DH and I are raising.
Atlanta is a fun 6 year old. Smart beyond her years when it comes to witty and artistic and then Houston is 3. He is a sweet boy who loves his "LOLLY" that's me..I am their Lolly. (I am too young and fun to be called grandma). He is a special child that was blessed to have taught us so much compassion and love. He has Autism and cant for some odd reason deal with Kelly/Crayon green...not in M&M's or Lego's nothing at all....He hates to shop but loves to help carry in the bags and cries if he does not feel like he is being helpful  Cry I always have a bag to carry in. They both love to garden. He is so happy there and at the beach. The only places I think he is like everyone else and his brain is at peace Smiley


We have some Allergies in the house...Atlanta has a lung illness like asthma. She cant be around the sticky tar stuff from cigarettes. If you smoke inside pass on claiming us. If you smoke outdoors make sure to please wash your hands and supplies well to not have issues.

I am able to do personal swaps again so lets get some going Cheesy
Ewulotta
« Reply #8 on: August 02, 2011 12:02:07 AM »

I claim babalina for a tshirt from her pintrest.

1st claim/0/0

My name is Eva and Im from Germany. Im a 28-year old teacher at secondary school. In June I got married in a civil wedding ceremony - the real big church wedding is coming up in October. There are still some things to prepare. Last month we moved to the lovely city of Cologne where my hubby works.  In my free time I really enjoy felting, stencilling and sewing. At the moment I rather stick to sewing though. My mum has recently gifted me a serger so Im trying my hand at sewing clothing. I like natural and bright colours (green, brown, violet, teal) and natural materials like wool or wood. Unfortunately Im allergic to cat hair.


My wishlist (check out my wists for more inspiration: http://www.wists.com/Ewulotta)
Big wishes in bold

Crafts

YARN

Hand-knitted hat (for my sister, a black angora or fluffy one with small beads)

Slouchy knit hat in autumn colours (for me, rather dainty)

Knit Cowl neck scarf (in mustard yellow or teal or plum)

Stripes knit socks (autumn-ish colours would be great!)

Amigurumi Hobbes tiger (the one from the Calvin&Hobbes comics)

Halloween Amigurumis (like these ones here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=360313.0)

Nativitiy amigurumis (sheperds or the three wise men - Ive already got the holy family and two sheep. PM for size!)

NEW Christmas tree ornaments (gingerbread men, candy canes, reindeers, elves...)


SEWING

Appliqued pillow cases (something Halloween or autumn or with Calvin&Hobbes - we bought a new sofa in plain beige and need something to jazz it up a bit. Hubby picked the colour and now thinks it makes him depressive)

Placemats (a set of 4 would be great, either appliqud or embroidered with flowers, trees, stripes or dots, lime green, light blue, teal and/or violet for our birch tree table)

NEW Quilted table runner (preferably stripes in shades of blue, green and purple, something fresh and modern)


NEEDLEWORK

Embroidered Cloth Napkins (a set of 4 with eating related quotations would be fantastic. We've got a birch wood table so, lime green, violet or light blue napkins would be perfect. PM for more details like font or German quotations)

NEW Embroidered table runner (floral (hibiscus, lotus, peony) or leafy embroidery in shades of blue, purple or green OR something Christmas related)

NEW Embroidered guest towels (saying "GSTE" (German for guests) or friendly reminders like "Wash your hands"


JEWELLERY

Charm bracelets (antique brass, bronze or copper for the bracelet with any colourful charms)

Dangly vintage earrings (especially flowers, birds, owls etc. Had a nice pair of dangly bird earrings but lost one in classroom. I prefer antique brass or bronze but copper is also a nice choice. NO gold or silver coating please!)

Whimsical charm necklaces (silver, antique brass, bronze or copper - birds, leaves, flowers, trees or anything related to love or tea Smiley)

Brooches (Id like to jazz up my coats and shirts a little. Flowery brooches are most welcome!)

Kanzashi flowers


OFFICE STUFF

Custom Rubber Stamps (with flowers or birdies and my name)

Decorated paper clips

Perpetual birthday calender (all my family and friends remember my birthday every year which is quite easy because its Christmas Eve but I always forget their birthdays. That has come to an end. I quite like this design: http://www.wists.com/Ewulotta/3b641ae1761bbde27f77e06e8b5e5711?offset=0 OR http://www.wists.com/Ewulotta/7938d6a6911816cb1c2e7ca0b4e3e53a?offset=0


MISC

Door sign (maybe scrapbooking, maybe wooden, anything modern. Hubby and I just moved into a new flat and still have no door sign)

FRIENDS peephole frame (http://www.friendsposter.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/frame.jpg)


Wisty surprise


Supplies

Roving (hand-dyed would be really nice)
wool felt sheets (all different shades of green but other colours also welcome)
Fabric (anything from the US, but especially designs like Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, Joel Dewberry, Valorie Wells, Michael Miller, Robert Kaufmann or any Free Spirit, those are difficult to find in Germany)
black fabric (patterned but black background)
Zippers
Thread (cotton, all colours welcome)
Serger thread (all colours welcome)
Buttons
Velcro (colourful would be great!)

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

 I will claim you back for some app. pillow cases for your couch I will say Halloween / fall but will look at C&H Smiley and something else

2/0/0

  Hello all, I am Monica My Birthday is tomorrow Aug 2 Cry  Most of you know that however . My family sucks and never remembers or if they do I have not received a birthday gift from them to include my DH in years..Sad huh, Christmas nothing Cry  I am really blessed to have great friends here as my DH says My BFF in the box Smiley I feel like when I go to the mail box it is like Birthday and Christmas all in one all year long Smiley Hooray for great swap friends!!

 I have to say I am trying to convert my home to as much homemade craftiness as I can it makes me happy. I love so many things and my home is so fun and different in each room really. I am a surfer type ocean girl (I will be on a board again when I get my knee replaced. We live at the beach on the Crystal Coast the last bank of the famed Outer Banks of North Carolina. I love pink and girly but some edgy too. I am an ride it fast kind of girl. I drive my motorcycle year round for the most part . I love to ride and love the ocean. We are teaching the kids to ride horses and Atlanta to surf, how fun. She is a beach bum really they both are. They love to fish and hunt ( shhhh she sits in the woods with me and looks at the animals) only time she shuts up LOL...

I am into clean lines I guess as to messy, I cant stand things looking cluttered or things that are tossed together looking in my house, hair etc everything is just right before we leave the house LOL Odd I know makeup to the beach and even hunting..Odd ball huh....I am not into floral shappy look at all, hate black and when it comes to clothing I dont ware dark colors at all! I am a beacy girl and love pretty and fun things, look at my pintrest to see my style. I like most of the items there like they are and have noted colors etc there.

We have 2 beautiful grandkids that my DH and I are raising.
Atlanta is a fun 6 year old. Smart beyond her years when it comes to witty and artistic and then Houston is 3. He is a sweet boy who loves his "LOLLY" that's me..I am their Lolly. (I am too young and fun to be called grandma). He is a special child that was blessed to have taught us so much compassion and love. He has Autism and cant for some odd reason deal with Kelly/Crayon green...not in M&M's or Lego's nothing at all....He hates to shop but loves to help carry in the bags and cries if he does not feel like he is being helpful  Cry I always have a bag to carry in. They both love to garden. He is so happy there and at the beach. The only places I think he is like everyone else and his brain is at peace Smiley


We have some Allergies in the house...Atlanta has a lung illness like asthma. She cant be around the sticky tar stuff from cigarettes. If you smoke inside pass on claiming us. If you smoke outdoors make sure to please wash your hands and supplies well to not have issues.
