IMPORTANT: Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0 this is a great tip for being a great swapper and the link to all swap rules are there too Smiley

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 73.

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

                                        This is our last swap claim of round 73

jamiek79 is our first person up so be generous and claim her for a wonderful package Smiley

Hi Everybody!  A little about me  My family and I live in New Hampshire and I am a crafty mother of 3 beautiful munchkins. A 6 y.o. boy, a 4 y.o. girl and an adorable 2y.o. girl. We are New Englanders through and through. I love to ski and snowboard in the winter and in the summer you can usually find us at the lake (when it is not raining and then you can find me in my craft room). New England sports are the greatest. The New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox are my favs!
   I dont really have a favorite color. I like bright and bold for accessories but for decorating prefer beachy colors and reds. However my house isnt decorated in seashells and seahorses. I just like the lightness that these colors bring. All time favorite color combo though is Chocolate brown and aqua. I sew,knit,crochet and papercraft. I do have a wist and a pinterest. The links are in my signature.  I love to learn new things and will always try something once. If you have a craft you do and want to send a learn to kit it would make me squee!  Now on to the important stuff! My wish list!
   If you make something that you think I would love pm me and we will chat!
   We dont have any allergies in our house and  we also love to reuse items so used and in good shape is always good! I will pass on anything that smells like mothballs though.



Ok so I added a bunch of links. I dont need exactly what is pictured these are purely for inspiration!

I would also love a pinterest or wisty surprise.... (shhhh this gives you a reason to stalk! I know you all love you some good stalking!!!)

Crafted Items:
NEW: Jewelry any and all kinds
NEW: crayon totes for the kiddos
NEW: placemat for under the dogs food and water
NEW: kid friendly centerpiece for my kitchen table (I have no ideas for this so yours would be greatly appreciated)
NEW: D20 dice bag (this would be for the hubby for Christmas)
   Apron (beachy green, blue and yellow)
   Dangly Harry Potter earrings I would like something subtle that Potter fans would recognize but the muggles wont say hey those are Harry Potter. http://pinterest.com/pin/83630984/
   Large bead fabric necklace
   Charm bracelet pm me for insight into kids/hubby/sports This style I love but with my interests. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370065.msg4351441#msg4351441
   Hook roll http://pinterest.com/pin/102428797/
   Homemade Candles light and fruity, citrus, or clean (cotton, linen) smells
   Pin cushion in a small mug http://pinterest.com/pin/83660509/

         Coffee Cozy that says caffeinating please wait http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=385795.0

         Wrist pin cushion
   Quilted Pot Holders that can double as a trivet on the table (beachy, green, blue, yellow)
   Handspun Yarn any weight any color
   Picture frames  (my walls are really bare)

         Wall art ( some inspiration can be found on my pinterest)
   Framed black and white photos of flowers

   Vinyl letters for our mailbox (pm me for details)
   Slate Hand Painted plaque for outside our door with a painted Australian cattle dog http://www.slatelady.com/animal-slate-paintings.html
   Felt alphabet
   Cover for my kitchen aid
   Training pants for my 2yo waterproof/resistant underwear. Or some that are just really absorbant Not a diaper just something for when we are out of the house and arent as close to a bathroom as you need to be for a 2yo
   My 4yo is going to school so a backpack/library tote embroidered with her name.
   Tutus for the girls or any dress up stuff really
   Quilted table runner for kitchen table

         Handmade Christmas ornaments

         Knitting/Crochet project bag http://pinterest.com/pin/24582902/

         Mug Rugs my Mom has commissioned me to make them for the ladies in her office for Christmas presents and any and all help would be muchly appreciated

         Placemats a set of 6 embroidered would be fabulous.

         Dish towels with  a way to attach them to my oven or cabinets. My children are constantly stealing my dishtowels for blankets for their babies.

Supply List: a package of supplies would be wonderful but not necessary. I really want all of this stuff so

I claim jamiek79 for a couple mug rugs

First Claim/0 sent/0 received

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, 2 lizards (new additions) and frogs.

I love cross stitch and embroidery and I have a huge wall set aside for hoops. It has had many beautiful additions from swapping, but there is a ton of room left to fill.

I pretend I know how to sew and my sewing is improving thanks to some of my past partners linking wonderful tutorials to items they want.

I am a huge fan of Firefly/Serenity, steampunk, and the color blue in all shades. Most rooms in my house are white or beige with blue accents, my living room is pale green. I need some color. 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.

I claim drgdlg for a Ruffle Tree Skirt in Black and White.

1st claim, 0 sent, 0 received

Hi my name is Chris.  Im 35 and I live in Alaska with my husband, 2 dogs, and cat.  I love the outdoors and spend a lot of time outside hiking, fishing, skiing, kayaking, etc.  I love to bring the outdoors inside with nature themed art and colors.  I love greens, browns, fall colors in reds, orange, dark yellows.  Favorite animals are otters, foxes, and all kinds of birds.  I also like sea crittersnot so much fish but seahorses, jellyfish, squid, crabs, seaweed.  Im not allergic to anything but really hate the smell of cigarette smoke.

I have a pretty extensive Wist and Pinterest.  Ive been switching over to Pinterest but everything on my wist is still stuff I like/want.  Id love anything from it or inspired by something on it.  Pinterest is the most up to date and has lots of categories including a supplies wish list and a craft swap wish list as well as pages with stuffies, hoppla, and themes I like.  If you do pick something off my Wist or Pinterest please do read the comments I'll occasionally put something up and then say "Love this style but don't like that color" or some such.

Crafty items

- BIG WISH - A bag for trips to the lake and dog park.  I'd love something is an over-the- shoulder or messenger style bag.  I'd love for it to be divided in two (or a removable wet bag) inside with one side lined with PUL, oilcloth, coated nylon, any other type water resistant material (so I can isolate slobbery tennis balls and water soaked toys).  Also a zipper or velcor pocket for keys and wallet would be great. Something in the style of this  one or  this  one .  Modern fun print fabric would be nice.  See my wist for ideas of styles I like.

I claim ChrisSews for some sea creature stuffies.

First claim / 0 sent / 0 received.


About me: My name is Angie. I live in Washington state. My favorite color is purple; i'm told yellow is "my color", and i also love green, grey, and brown. My favorite color combo is blue/teal and brown.
Teal really means a lot to me, as my grandma died from ovarian cancer. (I'm not into the whole ribbon thing, but teal does mean a lot.) Since September is ovarian cancer awareness month, something teal would definitely be amazing right now.

If you want to get a sense of who i am, check out my pinterest: http://pinterest.com/bananaleg It's preeeeetty well filled out. Smiley I even have a board for swapsies... it's literally called "For Swapsies".

I would love love LOVE to start my own hoopla wall, but as of right now, i don't have any. I have a list a mile long of different hoops i would love to have...

Things i love: 1920s, 1960s, rain/clouds, Elvis, Doctor Who, swirls, goats, bananas, mustaches and beards, batik, Bigfoot.
So, if you're wondering what fabric to use for something... anything reminiscent of those things, i will love.

Crafts
_yarn bowl -- examples: http://pinterest.com/pin/92627921/ or http://pinterest.com/pin/96220894/
_hoopla! some of my main ideas (if you want more variety to choose from, i'll send you the whole list):
   --Dia. Interpret how you will. We called my grandma Dia, and it wasn't until recently i even noticed "dia" is also "day" in Spanish. So... you know... some sort of sunrise scene? Anything showing life that also says "dia" or "Dia" somewhere. Maybe in a pretty cursive? (She's the one who lost her battle with ovarian cancer, so incorporating teal would also be amazing.)
   --United States Army Air Corps insignia
   http://ebid.s3.amazonaws.com/upload_big/4/4/8/1301273598-19951-0.jpg
      --maybe with the lyrics "a toast to the host of the men we boast"
   --outline of Washington state with Tacoma marked on it
   --Seattle skyline -- nothing too extravagant, just a simple outline, maybe like this: http://pinterest.com/pin/153718638/
   --the text: #finishedwithgrace
   --"Forgive me, i'm blowing your mind." --(it's a quote from Vanilla Sky)
   --any sort of rain/cloud scene
_infinity dress
_homemade soap (icebyrd67 made me some "turkish mocha" soap once and i LOVED it... also love oat soaps)
_homemade chapstick -- i'm into peppermint and cinnamon
_River Song journal
_fabric coil bowl
_tree of life pendant
_overnight bag
_WIP project bag for walking and knitting
_crochet hook roll
_knitting needle roll
_Teesha Moore journal
_rings -- i like silver and simple.
_A pinterest surprise would be amazing. http://pinterest.com/bananaleg/
   --I have a board specifically for swaps: http://pinterest.com/bananaleg/for-swapsies/
_Gibbous skirt


Supplies
_handspun yarn
_buttons -- homemade would be awesome
_stitch markers
_roving and spindle -- basically, a beginner's spinning kit
_fabric -- i love batiks and swirls
_Sculpey -- i would love to get back into clay crafting
_cotton yarn
_handmade knitting needles or crochet hooks -- any size, because really... that's just awesome.
_crochet hooks -- i only have F, G, H, and I hooks, so any other size would be wonderful.
_circular knitting needles and the matching dpns -- I have 16" size 6, 7, and 10 1/2 already. I have size 9 circs, but not dpns, and i have size 8 dpns but not circs. I would love 29" or 32" circs (i have 29" size 7s, but that's it)... But any other sizes... Smiley
_embroidery hoops -- so maybe i can start making some of my own hoopla
_plain t-shirts in different colors (not shirts i can get from Jo-Ann) -- i am definitely okay with shirts you're looking to get rid of
_yarn scraps -- i have plans for a scarf with scraps from fellow craftsters

Extras
_something steampunk...
_anything German
_local stuff -- local treats, driftwood/stones if you live near water, etc...
_DVDs (or VHS would even be cool): The Philadelphia Story, Footlight Parade, Meet Me in St. Louis

I claim bananaleg for a hoopla.

This is my first claim none sent none recived.

Hi! My name is Liz. I live in a tiny village in Souther Illinois called Iuka. I have 2 dogs, both dashounds and I live alone, no kids. I love the darker side of things, vampires, gothic, steampunk, faries. On the flipside of that I love silly things like rubber ducks, I have over 350 of them in my bathroom, garfields, domos, headgehogs and a strange obbsession with pin cusions. I want to live in the 50's. Love everything about that decade and collect just about anything from it. I love to read and history is fascinating to me. I know lots of pointless facts and enjoy reading trivia and fact books like uncle johns bathroom readers. I enjoy playing cards and card games like munchkins. I absolutly love tattoos, i have 4 and am in the prosses of saving up for my next one.

 Hello, My name is Monica and I am a as my family said stress-less girl LOL REALLY RYK I live in Hurricane Alley and as you all know we just got home from being evac. from Irene ( I live in the Crystal Coast of NC the last bank of the famed Outer Banks) and HAHA here we go again next week with Katina Oh well, We will be fine and if not well FEAM ROTFL OMG that was a joke really...Is on the ground already and my Insurance company can suck it up;)
   I am a craft lover. I want my home as handcrafted quality as it can be. I love my Pintrest and it is so fun to just pin away LOL. I do not want or need anything from the Art or kids section for now....


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 shabby 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 but not Bright, Neon or country granny GAG

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 claim motherconfessor for Set of colorful Thank you cards
Claimed: 1
Sent (in transit): 0
Received: 0
(outstanding claims = 1)

Hi, Im Reinikka and I currently live in Southern California with my husband, our "puppy" (2 years old), and new cat. My husband and I both embrace our Finnish heritage and have a strange recurring cow theme in our relationship, so any Finland or cow related items would be great!

I love coffee, sushi, coconut, and my favorite colors are green, purple, and earthy tones. I am not a fan of pink or yellow. I wear a lot of brown and purple with some grey, blue, and occasional dark green thrown in there. If you claim me for anything wearable please check my pintrest and wist for color ideas or feel free to ask me if youre not sure. There are a few things on my list where color/pattern do not matter so dont let this discourage you. 

If you make me something with yarn please use only natural fibers (like cotton and wool). I have no allergies unless you plan on sending me bacon or preserved pork. Oh, and I do not have pierced ears, so no earrings please!


Big Wishes in Bold!

Crafted:

General Crafts/Wishes
~ Anything from/inspired by my pintrest or my wist
~Anything from/inspired by my crafty wishes pinboard   
~ Coffee themed anything
~ Cow themed anything (preferably for my kitchen)
~ Finland/Finnish themed anything

Sewn Items
~ Bill holder we neeeeed one of these! Our mail gets buried all the time and it would be wonderful to have a way to keep the bills separate so they get payed on time. Im putting this under sewn items but Im really up for any craft as long as it hangs and holds mail (maybe a hoopla?). Would really love if it said Dont forget! or something (other than bills) on it. The space I will hang it is 8 wide.
~ Top/Dress like this
~ Clothes! I would really love a handmade wardrobe, please only claim this if you can make high quality since I will be wearing them often. See my pintrest and wist for some ideas and I will provide measurements (Im usually size medium). Even simple comfy tank-tops would be great!
~ Clothing from/inspired by these pins
~ Wrap pants or p-jama pants, I would love a pair in flannel or something else that is soft and comfy. I will use these to lounge around on lazy days so color/print is not a huge issue, just no yellow please! Wrap pants tutorial
~ A business card holder, in a nature green/purple design or any other design ideas you think I'd like
~ Paperless paper towels to help me be more eco friendly (any color/size) Example here (Thanks ChrisSews for claiming these! Im keeping them up because I would love to have a lot and they area also something I want to give to my mom for Xmas)
~ Gibbous inspired bag (strong enough to use often please)
~ Ruffle covered/accented bag (any size)
~ Durable Kindle case (any color, but would especially love purple or something to match my Kindle skin), I have the 6" Display, Latest Generation and can provide measurements.
~ Cover for my sewing machine, does not need to be fancy! Anything would be better then the fabric scrap Im using now
~ Memory board for my craft room
~ Dog toy for our "puppy" aka medium sized dog (he loves fabric toys with squeakers inside)
~ Comfy Kitty Bed. Our kitty is a boy, but I dont think hes picky about color. Blue or green would be nice, but really any color is fine
~ Red Riding Hood costume pieces, I wanna be a gothic (slightly Victorian) Red for Halloween so Im looking for:
    Corset top, or similar style? Dark red and black
    Darkish red skirt, bloomers, or something for my lower half (I made a poofy black and white tutu, but I need something to wear under it)
      I have some ideas on this pintrest board, please use them as inspiration, no need to copy 
~ Curtain for a Light House themed bathroom (sewn or embroidered), window is 23 wide x 35 tall. Would love something with lighthouses but sale boats/ocean/sea shells would also be nice (no fishies though).
~ Master Bathroom curtain, window is 23 wide x 35 tall. This bathroom is decorated in light blue, white, and cream.
~ 3rd Bathroom curtain, window is 23 wide x 35 tall. No theme in this bathroom yet, so just about anything goes. My husband loves lighthouses though, so another lighthouse/ocean themed curtain would work well, otherwise something that can go with any later theme.
~ Curtain for my craft room, window is 59 wide x 40 tall. My craft room has a bunch of hippie art right now, but I am open to just about anything (see my pintrest and wist for an idea of my style or PM me)
~ Curtain for the guest room, window is 59 wide x 40 tall. Just about anything goes here, something pleasing to many eyes would be appreciated, but it can reflect our style too. PM me with any questions
~ Curtain for our office/computer room, window is 58 wide x 58 tall. No theme/colors assigned to this room yet, but there is a pirate picture we might hang in here and this room can easily reflect our nerdyness. So pirate themed or gamer themed would be fun.
~ Curtain for our kitchen, window is 47 wide x 46 tall. Kitchen is coffee and cow themed. Curtain does not need to be coffee or cow themed, shades of brown would work
~ Matching curtains for our two small kitchen windows (I still need to measure these, probably about 24 wide by 46 tall). Kitchen is coffee and cow themed. Curtain do not need to be coffee or cow themed, shades of brown would work. I do want both curtains to look the same.

Yarny Items (Natural fibers only please)
~ Comfy slippers to wear around the house, I like the Mary Jane style
~ Fingerless gloves (I live in these almost year round!) I have a few examples in my pintrest. Grey, green, purple, and blue are great color choices (pm me if you have another color idea)
~ Wrist cuffs
~ Wash cloths, any size/color

Any Fibers (Fabric, Yarn, Embroidery, etc)
~ Newsboy style hats
~ Any size tote bag / purse / clutch (I love pockets)
~ Hand towels. Would especially love Coffee or Cow themed but any other color/theme is fine.
~ Rags, any size/shape/color/style, etc. If they can clean a spill then it doesnt matter what they look like. If there is a new technique/style you want to try and need some practice then this is a way to get it!
~ Organization for my craft room (hanging organizers, baskets, boxes, etc), any color goes here but my favs are purple, green, and blue.

Jewelry/Hair Accessories
~ Jewelry and Accessories from/inspired by these pins 
~ Necklaces that can be worn casually for work (maybe a simple chain with pendant? See my pintrest and wist for some ideas)
~ Dragonfly jewelry (no earrings)
~ Old or foreign coin necklace
~ Anklets
~ Hair clips (I only wear one clip at a time, so no need for matching sets)
~ Gothicy barrettes (or headband) to go with my gothic Red Riding Hood Halloween costume, maybe dark red and black bows?

Wall Art (any craft)
~ Art from/inspired by these pins
~ Red Riding Hood inspired art (any interpretation, ultra cute to ultra goth. nothing too gory please, some blood is ok but nothing more than that)
~ Dragonfly art
~ Coffee (mocha, espresso, etc) art

Other Crafts
~ Red Riding Hood costume accessories
      Basket, dark wood, gothic, maybe with a red bow or something?
      Fake food to go in my basket?
    Wine label (Ill provide the bottle unless you really want to), for a poisonous/creepy sounding wine?
~ Etched shot glasses
~ Decoupaged/Painted/Decorated box for storing individual tea bags, must be water resistant.
~ Handmade coffee mugs (safe to drink from) Example 
~ Handmade coffee, coconut, or birthday cake scented candle (I like other scents too, PM me if you have another in mind and Ill let you know. I usually like food/fruity scents, and I usually dont like floral scents.)
~ Teacup Candle (or coffee mug)
~ Halloween Decorations for outside, hang-able or for sticking in the ground (I can attach the sticks), a wreath would be pretty cool, heres what I did last year so you can see the space I have to work with (I would love to hang a bunch of ornament/decorations where the black fabric was last year) 
~ Halloween Decorations to prop/hang in the windows, maybe some chunky houses? Big enough to be noticed please. (I love my hanging bats from gamemom42 but now I want even more Halloween decorations! So Im gonna keep this wish up for a little longer)
~ Joulupukki (Santa in Finnish) Xmas ornament would be awesome!
~ "Hauskaa Joulua" (Merry Christmas in Finnish) Ornament.


Supplies (used is fine for any of these):
~ Gibbous Fashion Kit, I followed the swap and would love to try making something of my own. So bits of lacey fabric, tulle, random creams, browns, purples and greens, and maybe a vest/tank top/skirt to start me off as a base would be fantastic to help get me started.: Link to swap gallery

   I am a craft lover. I want my home as handcrafted quality as it can be. I love my Pintrest and it is so fun to just pin away LOL. I do not want or need anything from the Art or kids section for now....


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 shabby 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 but not Bright, Neon or country granny GAG

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 claim babalina58 for a flowered tee.

2/0/0

Hi my name is Chris.  Im 35 and I live in Alaska with my husband, 2 dogs, and cat.  I love the outdoors and spend a lot of time outside hiking, fishing, skiing, kayaking, etc.  I love to bring the outdoors inside with nature themed art and colors.  I love greens, browns, fall colors in reds, orange, dark yellows.  Favorite animals are otters, foxes, and all kinds of birds.  I also like sea crittersnot so much fish but seahorses, jellyfish, squid, crabs, seaweed.  Im not allergic to anything but really hate the smell of cigarette smoke.

I have a pretty extensive Wist and Pinterest.  Ive been switching over to Pinterest but everything on my wist is still stuff I like/want.  Id love anything from it or inspired by something on it.  Pinterest is the most up to date and has lots of categories including a supplies wish list and a craft swap wish list as well as pages with stuffies, hoppla, and themes I like.  If you do pick something off my Wist or Pinterest please do read the comments I'll occasionally put something up and then say "Love this style but don't like that color" or some such.

Crafty items
Sewn

- BIG WISH - An ironing mat (a large one around 30 x 20 would fit my table well but smaller is ok)

- BIG WISH - A bag for trips to the lake and dog park.  I'd love something is an over-the- shoulder or messenger style bag.  I'd love for it to be divided in two (or a removable wet bag) inside with one side lined with PUL, oilcloth, coated nylon, any other type water resistant material (so I can isolate slobbery tennis balls and water soaked toys).  Also a zipper or velcor pocket for keys and wallet would be great. Something in the style of this  one or   this  one .  Modern fun print fabric would be nice.  See my wist for ideas of styles I like.

- A needlebook/case to hold my needle felting needles.  Im not picky about style, surprise me.  PM if you need measurements for felting needles.

-Crab, sea urchin, or starfish pillows.  I love   these , this , and these  I'd love them in any color but dark orange, brown, or tan would be fantastic.

- These slippers

Knitting or Crochet

- Sea creature stuffies or amigurumi.  Would love anything with tentacles, weird or unusual fish (puffer fish, anglerfish, etc), nautilus, crab, sea slugs (nudibrach), seahorses, corals, jellyfish, etc.

-Slipper/boots like these.  In any dark color womens shoe size 8.5.

- Warm socks for my hubby.  Mens size 11.  Any color is fine.

- Corchet covered rocks.  Would love a collection of these to put out in a glass bowl.

 Embroidery

- Dish towels.  I turned a bunch or mine that were looking shabby into rags.  Now I need some cute new ones.  I dont really have a color scheme in the kitchen but like greens, blues, browns or red and blacks.  Embroidered, sewn with cute material, appliquopen to any.  I like cute designs with kitchen themes (appliances, food, herbs, etc.) or any animal or nature theme.

- Hooplas or other wall art.  Lots of examples of styles I like on my Pinterest.
 
 Print/stencil clothing

-  Print/stencil t- shirts womens size 1X (or XXL in misses) preferred colors: brown and tans, rust, dark orange, greens (lime, apple, sage), grey, black.  Bird or animal designs, trees, leaves, etc.  Also love geek/science themes such as molecules, cells, etc. See Wists/Pinterest for some examples.  I prefer v- necks or scoop neck. Long or short sleeve is fine.

- Hoodie, print/stencil, embellished with embroidery, ect.  Need a womens 1X.  Same colors and designs as in the t-shirts above.

-Stencil lounge pants size misses XXL or womens 1Xsame themes as t-shirts above in black, brown, tan or grays.  

Other

- Soap. I prefer the cold press to melt and pour types.  I like natural scents, most fruit smells (citrus, pear, berry), vanilla, rosemary, lavender, green tea, oatmealjust nothing with too heavy a perfume smell.  

- Handmade beauty products.  Body butter or lotion, lip balm, sugar scrubs, etc.  Id love just about anything except bath oils, bath bomb, or any bath thing (I rarely take baths).

-  Wall art I would love some art to hang on my walls.  I love lots of the animal and botanical prints on vintageprintable.com site.  Would LOVE, LOVE some type of altered paper art using these.  PM me and Ill give you links to the ones I like best. A few of these nicely printed and framed or as wood block/altered paper type art or on a canvas would be fantastic.  Or get creative.   There are several examples of things I like on my Wist.

- A painted triptych.  Id love something on the larger side to put over my headboard.  I like most of the tree ones Ive seen.  I have examples some I especially like on my Pinterest.

- Otter soap dishes
Love these ottersany potters out there who want to make me one of these?

- Mini terrarium with air plants and succulents something in a pretty jar or even something like these ornaments

- Birds nest birthstone necklace for my mother.  PM and I can give you birthstone/birthdates.

Supplies
- Green yarn, especially fun yarn, eyelash yarn, and boulce type.  I have a project in mind that uses yarn to mimic moss.  I could use lots of shades of green and any amount...even small leftovers.
-BIG WISH- Soapmaking supplies or a learn to make soap kit.  Im not really interested in the melt and pourlooking for cold press soap.  I dont have anything so any supplies and/or ingredients at all will be much appreciated (we do have a local source for lye and some very basic oils).  
- Poppet making kit.  Ive been wanting to learn to make these for a while now. Just need an excuse to get started.

I claim Chrissews for a birds nest necklace for her mum.
1/0/0

My name is Robin.  I live in Portland, OR (U.S.) and I am a full time PhD student.  I am also the mother of preschooler extraordinaire, Aria Jae.   I love handmade and I love surrounding my child with handmade.  Surprises are always lovelycheck out my pinterest for an idea of my likes, wants, and tastes!  http://pinterest.com/rlynn/

If you decide to craft for me: my favorite colors are blue and green.  I love earthy and jewel tones.   I wear a lot of black and sometimes a bit of grey and every once in a while something red, but mostly I wear black.  I like the look of steampunk and Gibbous jewelry and clothing.

If you decide to craft for Aria: her favorite colors are blue and green as well.  She loves pirates, robots, monsters, rainbows, and elephants.  She also loves the care bears (80s style, before CGI got to them), the 70s animated TV show Godzilla, Ponyo, Batman, Spiderman, and the Hulk (as in the green guy). We dont really do princess stuff around here but we do like fairies, sprites, and gnomes.  I have loads of things I would love for her pinned on my pinterest, including clothing, toys, and accessories.  

Crafts
For Aria
-1/18 scale dollhouse stuff (she has some calico critters; I think that is the appropriate scale)
-skully fingerless gloves
-Fairy/Butterfly wings
-Winter Hat (PM for head measurements)
- tees, tunics, hoodies, pants, or dresses for Aria (4T)
here are a few links to some things i really like but you don't have to make these exact things...I'm including it for inspiration about the types of clothing and fabric/color choices I like.  there are more examples in my pinterest.
pants
hat
more clothing ideas
-Pantaloons (4T)
-altered hoodie (5T)
-appliqued, stenciled, embellished tees, etc... for Aria (4T)
-Wall art (her room is mostly blue and green)
-A fabric wall chart for Aria like this fabric chart but maybe with blue and green buttons.  
-Teeny tiny crocheted animals (she has piggies already)
-Something elephant; Aria loves them (anything but please no stuffies unless it teeny and tiny)
-Something galaxy inspired and appropriate for an almost 4 year old; she loves the planets and stars
-rainbow themed whimsy jar

For me
-Jewelry for me (please check out my pinterest for ideas; Im pretty particular about my jewelry.  It doesnt have to be an exact replica but my pinterest will give you a feel for my tastes)
-Fold over yoga band skirts for me (PM for measurements) Here's a tutorial
-bags with sturdy handles as I would like to use them to haul my school stuff to and from campus
Bags I like posted here
-messenger bag or tote bag with stenciled dr. mckay and the quote, "Its a city, not a yo-yo." or "What am I, MacGyver?!  Fix it with what?"
-winter hat (I have some on pinterest; PM for measurements)
-wool dryer balls
-Fun Magnets
-Handmade buttons
-Laptop cozy (PM for measurements)
-Hoop art (I have some on pinterest)
-Hair pretties (I think I have some on my pinterest but again I like steampunk and gibbous inspired things)
-woodland creature and the forest themed whimsy jar


Craft Supplies

-Fabric from my pinterest
-Any of the craft books from my pinterest
-Thread for my sewing machine (all colors)
-Liquid watercolors
-Tempera paints
-Canvas any size (the kind that is stretched over a wood frame)
-Old ornate frames (can be old and need a new paint job, no glass necessary)
-Double folded Bias tape (all colors and widths)

Extras
-TEA (I prefer black tea, chai tea, vanilla tea...anything really but the fruity kind)
-Aria loves gold coinsfeel free to add to her loot.  Cheesy
-My partner, Phil, is hard to craft for but his stomach is always a good bet.  He loves chocolate and gummy bears and bacon (but that might not travel well) and pretty much any delish candy.  

Thanks much!! Cheesy

I claim IdlersDesign for a fabric garland

2/0/0

My name is Robin.  I live in Portland, OR (U.S.) and I am a full time PhD student.  I am also the mother of preschooler extraordinaire, Aria Jae.   I love handmade and I love surrounding my child with handmade.  Surprises are always lovelycheck out my pinterest for an idea of my likes, wants, and tastes!  http://pinterest.com/rlynn/

If you decide to craft for me: my favorite colors are blue and green.  I love earthy and jewel tones.   I wear a lot of black and sometimes a bit of grey and every once in a while something red, but mostly I wear black.  I like the look of steampunk and Gibbous jewelry and clothing.

If you decide to craft for Aria: her favorite colors are blue and green as well.  She loves pirates, robots, monsters, rainbows, and elephants.  She also loves the care bears (80s style, before CGI got to them), the 70s animated TV show Godzilla, Ponyo, Batman, Spiderman, and the Hulk (as in the green guy). We dont really do princess stuff around here but we do like fairies, sprites, and gnomes.  I have loads of things I would love for her pinned on my pinterest, including clothing, toys, and accessories.  

Crafts
For Aria
-1/18 scale dollhouse stuff (she has some calico critters; I think that is the appropriate scale)
-skully hat (PM for measurements)
-Fairy/Butterfly wings
-Winter Hat (PM for head measurements)
- tees, tunics, hoodies, pants, or dresses for Aria (4T)
here are a few links to some things i really like but you don't have to make these exact things...I'm including it for inspiration about the types of clothing and fabric/color choices I like.  there are more examples in my pinterest.
pants
hat
more clothing ideas
-Pantaloons (4T)
-altered hoodie (5T)
-appliqued, stenciled, embellished tees, etc... for Aria (4T)
-Wall art (her room is mostly blue and green)
-A fabric wall chart for Aria like this fabric chart but maybe with blue and green buttons.  
-Teeny tiny crocheted animals (she has piggies already)
-Something elephant; Aria loves them (anything but please no stuffies unless it teeny and tiny)
-Something galaxy inspired and appropriate for an almost 4 year old; she loves the planets and stars
-rainbow themed whimsy jar
-ATC binder with the clear plastic sleeves

For me
-Jewelry for me (please check out my pinterest for ideas; Im pretty particular about my jewelry.  It doesnt have to be an exact replica but my pinterest will give you a feel for my tastes)
-Fold over yoga band skirts for me (PM for measurements) Here's a tutorial
-bags with sturdy handles as I would like to use them to haul my school stuff to and from campus
Bags I like posted here
-messenger bag or tote bag with stenciled dr. mckay (from Stargate Atlantis) and the quote, "Its a city, not a yo-yo." or "What am I, MacGyver?!  Fix it with what?"

-wool dryer balls

-Aria is dressing as Ponyo for Halloween and I cannot find a green bucket that I like...if you see or have one like in this drawing http://www.flickr.com/photos/7609258@N07/3940374820/in/photostream

I claim IdlersDesign for a journal
Claimed: 2
Sent (in transit): 0
Received: 0
(outstanding claims =2)

Hi, Im Reinikka and I currently live in Southern California with my husband, our "puppy" (2 years old), and new cat. My husband and I both embrace our Finnish heritage and have a strange recurring cow theme in our relationship, so any Finland or cow related items would be great!

I love coffee, sushi, coconut, and my favorite colors are green, purple, and earthy tones. I am not a fan of pink or yellow. I wear a lot of brown and purple with some grey, blue, and occasional dark green thrown in there. If you claim me for anything wearable please check my pintrest and wist for color ideas or feel free to ask me if youre not sure. There are a few things on my list where color/pattern do not matter so dont let this discourage you.  

If you make me something with yarn please use only natural fibers (like cotton and wool). I have no allergies unless you plan on sending me bacon or preserved pork. Oh, and I do not have pierced ears, so no earrings please!


Big Wishes in Bold!

Crafted:

General Crafts/Wishes
~ Anything from/inspired by my pintrest or my wist
~ Anything from/inspired by my crafty wishes pinboard  
~ Coffee themed anything
~ Cow themed anything (preferably for my kitchen)
~ Finland/Finnish themed anything

Sewn Items
~ Bill holder we neeeeed one of these! Our mail gets buried all the time and it would be wonderful to have a way to keep the bills separate so they get payed on time. Im putting this under sewn items but Im really up for any craft as long as it hangs and holds mail (maybe a hoopla?). Would really love if it said Dont forget! or something (other than bills) on it. The space I will hang it is 8 wide.
~ Top/Dress like this
~ Clothes! I would really love a handmade wardrobe, please only claim this if you can make high quality since I will be wearing them often. See my pintrest and wist for some ideas and I will provide measurements (Im usually size medium). Even simple comfy tank-tops would be great!
~ Clothing from/inspired by these pins
~ Wrap pants or p-jama pants, I would love a pair in flannel or something else that is soft and comfy. I will use these to lounge around on lazy days so color/print is not a huge issue, just no yellow please! Wrap pants tutorial
~ Paperless paper towels to help me be more eco friendly (any color/size) Example here (Thanks ChrisSews for claiming these! Im keeping them up because I would love to have a lot and they area also something I want to give to my mom for Xmas)
~ Gibbous inspired bag (strong enough to use often please)
~ Ruffle covered/accented bag (any size)
~ Durable Kindle case (any color, but would especially love purple or something to match my Kindle skin), I have the 6" Display, Latest Generation and can provide measurements.
~ Cover for my sewing machine, does not need to be fancy! Anything would be better then the fabric scrap Im using now
~ Memory board for my craft room
~ Dog toy for our "puppy" aka medium sized dog (he loves fabric toys with squeakers inside)
~ Comfy Kitty Bed. Our kitty is a boy, but I dont think hes picky about color. Blue or green would be nice, but really any color is fine
~ NEW Kitty mug rug for going under his food and water dishes. blues or greens would be nice but any color/theme is fine.
~ Red Riding Hood costume pieces, I wanna be a gothic (slightly Victorian) Red for Halloween so Im looking for:
    Corset top, or similar style? Dark red and black
    Darkish red skirt, bloomers, or something for my lower half (I made a poofy black and white tutu, but I need something to wear under it)
      I have some ideas on this pintrest board, please use them as inspiration, no need to copy  
~ Curtain for a Light House themed bathroom (sewn or embroidered), window is 23 wide x 35 tall. Would love something with lighthouses but sale boats/ocean/sea shells would also be nice (no fishies though).
~ Master Bathroom curtain, window is 23 wide x 35 tall. This bathroom is decorated in light blue, white, and cream.
~ 3rd Bathroom curtain, window is 23 wide x 35 tall. No theme in this bathroom yet, so just about anything goes. My husband loves lighthouses though, so another lighthouse/ocean themed curtain would work well, otherwise something that can go with any later theme.
~ Curtain for my craft room, window is 59 wide x 40 tall. My craft room has a bunch of hippie art right now, but I am open to just about anything (see my pintrest and wist for an idea of my style or PM me)
~ Curtain for the guest room, window is 59 wide x 40 tall. Just about anything goes here, something pleasing to many eyes would be appreciated, but it can reflect our style too. PM me with any questions
~ Curtain for our office/computer room, window is 58 wide x 58 tall. No theme/colors assigned to this room yet, but there is a pirate picture we might hang in here and this room can easily reflect our nerdyness. So pirate themed or gamer themed would be fun.
~ Curtain for our kitchen, window is 47 wide x 46 tall. Kitchen is coffee and cow themed. Curtain does not need to be coffee or cow themed, shades of brown would work
~ Matching curtains for our two small kitchen windows (I still need to measure these, probably about 24 wide by 46 tall). Kitchen is coffee and cow themed. Curtain do not need to be coffee or cow themed, shades of brown would work. I do want both curtains to look the same.

Yarny Items (Natural fibers only please)
~ Comfy slippers to wear around the house, I like the Mary Jane style
~ Fingerless gloves (I live in these almost year round!) I have a few examples in my pintrest. Grey, green, purple, and blue are great color choices (pm me if you have another color idea)
~ Wrist cuffs
~ Wash cloths, any size/color

Any Fibers (Fabric, Yarn, Embroidery, etc)
~ Newsboy style hats
~ Any size tote bag / purse / clutch (I love pockets)
~ Hand towels. Would especially love Coffee or Cow themed but any other color/theme is fine.
~ Rags, any size/shape/color/style, etc. If they can clean a spill then it doesnt matter what they look like. If there is a new technique/style you want to try and need some practice then this is a way to get it!
~ Organization for my craft room (hanging organizers, baskets, boxes, etc), any color goes here but my favs are purple, green, and blue.

Jewelry/Hair Accessories
~ Jewelry and Accessories from/inspired by these pins  
~ Necklaces that can be worn casually for work (maybe a simple chain with pendant? See my pintrest and wist for some ideas)
~ Dragonfly jewelry (no earrings)
~ Old or foreign coin necklace
~ Anklets
~ Hair clips (I only wear one clip at a time, so no need for matching sets)
~ Gothicy barrettes (or headband) to go with my gothic Red Riding Hood Halloween costume, maybe dark red and black bows?

Wall Art (any craft)

~ Red Riding Hood inspired art (any interpretation, ultra cute to ultra goth. nothing too gory please, some blood is ok but nothing more than that)
~ Dragonfly art
~ Coffee (mocha, espresso, etc) art

      Fake food to go in my basket?

~ Handmade coffee mugs (safe to drink from)
~ Handmade coffee, coconut, or birthday cake scented candle (I like other scents too, PM me if you have another in mind and Ill let you know. I usually like food/fruity scents, and I usually dont like floral scents.)
~ Teacup Candle (or coffee mug)
~ Halloween Decorations for outside, hang-able or for sticking in the ground (I can attach the sticks), a wreath would be pretty cool, heres what I did last year so you can see the space I have to work with (I would love to hang a bunch of ornament/decorations where the black fabric was last year)  
~ Halloween Decorations to prop/hang in the windows, maybe some chunky houses? Big enough to be noticed please. (I love my hanging bats from gamemom42 but now I want even more Halloween decorations! So Im gonna keep this wish up for a little longer)

I claim Kartiana for a mug rug for her kitty

3/0/0

My name is Robin.  I live in Portland, OR (U.S.) and I am a full time PhD student.  I am also the mother of preschooler extraordinaire, Aria Jae.   I love handmade and I love surrounding my child with handmade.  Surprises are always lovelycheck out my pinterest for an idea of my likes, wants, and tastes!  http://pinterest.com/rlynn/

If you decide to craft for me: my favorite colors are blue and green.  I love earthy and jewel tones.   I wear a lot of black and sometimes a bit of grey and every once in a while something red, but mostly I wear black.  I like the look of steampunk and Gibbous jewelry and clothing.

If you decide to craft for Aria: her favorite colors are blue and green as well.  She loves pirates, robots, monsters, rainbows, and elephants.  She also loves the care bears (80s style, before CGI got to them), the 70s animated TV show Godzilla, Ponyo, Batman, Spiderman, and the Hulk (as in the green guy). We dont really do princess stuff around here but we do like fairies, sprites, and gnomes.  I have loads of things I would love for her pinned on my pinterest, including clothing, toys, and accessories.  

Crafts
For Aria
-1/18 scale dollhouse stuff (she has some calico critters; I think that is the appropriate scale)
-skully hat (PM for measurements)
-Fairy/Butterfly wings
-Winter Hat (PM for head measurements)
- tees, tunics, hoodies, pants, or dresses for Aria (4T)
here are a few links to some things i really like but you don't have to make these exact things...I'm including it for inspiration about the types of clothing and fabric/color choices I like.  there are more examples in my pinterest.
pants
hat
more clothing ideas
-Pantaloons (4T)
-altered hoodie (5T)
-appliqued, stenciled, embellished tees, etc... for Aria (4T)
-Batman tee (4T)
-Wall art (her room is mostly blue and green)
-A fabric wall chart for Aria like this fabric chart but maybe with blue and green buttons.  
-Teeny tiny crocheted animals (she has piggies already)
-Something elephant; Aria loves them (anything but please no stuffies unless it teeny and tiny)
-Something galaxy inspired and appropriate for an almost 4 year old; she loves the planets and stars
-rainbow themed whimsy jar
-ATC binder with the clear plastic sleeves (yep, my 3 year old is making and swapping ATCs. Cheesy )

For me
-Jewelry for me (please check out my pinterest for ideas; Im pretty particular about my jewelry.  It doesnt have to be an exact replica but my pinterest will give you a feel for my tastes)
-Fold over yoga band skirts for me (PM for measurements) Here's a tutorial
-bags with sturdy handles as I would like to use them to haul my school stuff to and from campus
Bags I like posted here
-messenger bag or tote bag with stenciled dr. mckay (from Stargate Atlantis) and the quote, "Its a city, not a yo-yo." or "What am I, MacGyver?!  Fix it with what?"
-wool dryer balls
-Fun Magnets
-Handmade buttons
-Laptop cozy (PM for measurements)
-Hoop art (I have some on pinterest)
-Hair pretties (I think I have some on my pinterest but again I like steampunk and gibbous inspired things)
-woodland creature and the forest themed whimsy jar
-Reusable "Paper" Towels (Don't really care what material/color/pattern as long as its absorbent)
- Kitchen wet bag (I would like it to attach to the stove as in the photo and would like some form of waterproof lining please)

For Aria's Fourth Birthday Party
Besides Aria's first birthday party, her traditional Korean dol, I have not made a very big deal out of her birthday.  For her 4th, I'd like to throw her a spectacular Care Bears themed birthday full of rainbows, hearts, and star buddies.  I figured I'd go heavy on the rainbows, hearts, and stars and less so on the Care Bears.  Her birthday is not until the end of March, but knowing me I'll be neck deep in school work and grading papers so I could use all the help I can get.  Cheesy 

-this fabric flower garland but in more rainbow-y colors
-something like this cake topper but with brown hair and eyes and maybe a rainbow heart balloon instead of a kite?
-scrappy ribbon garland...I need six of them (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple) about 9 feet each.  These can of course be done in separate claims.
-This delightful felt rainy cloud mobile
-Paper star garland

More to be added as I come up with more ideas; also feel free to check out my pinterest; the board titled party ideas is chock full of rainbow delight.  Cheesy

I claim rlynn for Something galaxy inspired for Aria
Claimed: 3
Sent (in transit): 0
Received: 1
(outstanding claims = 2)

Hi, Im Reinikka and I currently live in Southern California with my husband, our "puppy" (2 years old), and new cat. My husband and I both embrace our Finnish heritage and have a strange recurring cow theme in our relationship, so any Finland or cow related items would be great!

I love coffee, sushi, coconut, and my favorite colors are green, purple, and earthy tones. I am not a fan of pink or yellow. I wear a lot of brown and purple with some grey, blue, and occasional dark green thrown in there. If you claim me for anything wearable please check my pintrest and wist for color ideas or feel free to ask me if youre not sure. There are a few things on my list where color/pattern do not matter so dont let this discourage you. 

If you make me something with yarn please use only natural fibers (like cotton and wool). I have no allergies unless you plan on sending me bacon or preserved pork. Oh, and I do not have pierced ears, so no earrings please!


Big Wishes in Bold!

Crafted:

General Crafts/Wishes
~ Anything from/inspired by my pintrest or my wist
~ Anything from/inspired by my crafty wishes pinboard   
~ Coffee themed anything
~ Cow themed anything (preferably for my kitchen)
~ Finland/Finnish themed anything

Sewn Items
~ Bill holder we neeeeed one of these! Our mail gets buried all the time and it would be wonderful to have a way to keep the bills separate so they get payed on time. Im putting this under sewn items but Im really up for any craft as long as it hangs and holds mail (maybe a hoopla?). Would really love if it said Dont forget! or something (other than bills) on it. The space I will hang it is 8 wide.
~ Top/Dress like this
~ Clothes! I would really love a handmade wardrobe, please only claim this if you can make high quality since I will be wearing them often. See my pintrest and wist for some ideas and I will provide measurements (Im usually size medium). Even simple comfy tank-tops would be great!
~ Clothing from/inspired by these pins
~ Wrap pants or p-jama pants, I would love a pair in flannel or something else that is soft and comfy. I will use these to lounge around on lazy days so color/print is not a huge issue, just no yellow please! Wrap pants tutorial
~ Paperless paper towels to help me be more eco friendly (any color/size) Example here (Thanks ChrisSews for claiming these! Im keeping them up because I would love to have a lot and they area also something I want to give to my mom for Xmas)
~ Gibbous inspired bag (strong enough to use often please)
~ Ruffle covered/accented bag (any size)
~ Durable Kindle case (any color, but would especially love purple or something to match my Kindle skin), I have the 6" Display, Latest Generation and can provide measurements.
~ Cover for my sewing machine, does not need to be fancy! Anything would be better then the fabric scrap Im using now
~ Memory board for my craft room
~ Dog toy for our "puppy" aka medium sized dog (he loves fabric toys with squeakers inside)
~ Comfy Kitty Bed. Our kitty is a boy, but I dont think hes picky about color. Blue or green would be nice, but really any color is fine
~ Kitty mug rug for going under his food and water dishes. blues or greens would be nice but any color/theme is fine. (Thanks for claiming me rlynn)
~ Red Riding Hood costume pieces, I wanna be a gothic (slightly Victorian) Red for Halloween so Im looking for:
    Corset top, or similar style? Dark red and black
    Darkish red skirt, bloomers, or something for my lower half (I made a poofy black and white tutu, but I need something to wear under it)
      I have some ideas on this pintrest board, please use them as inspiration, no need to copy 
~ Curtain for a Light House themed bathroom (sewn or embroidered), window is 23 wide x 35 tall. Would love something with lighthouses but sale boats/ocean/sea shells would also be nice (no fishies though).
~ Master Bathroom curtain, window is 23 wide x 35 tall. This bathroom is decorated in light blue, white, and cream.
~ 3rd Bathroom curtain, window is 23 wide x 35 tall. No theme in this bathroom yet, so just about anything goes. My husband loves lighthouses though, so another lighthouse/ocean themed curtain would work well, otherwise something that can go with any later theme.
~ Curtain for my craft room, window is 59 wide x 40 tall. My craft room has a bunch of hippie art right now, but I am open to just about anything (see my pintrest and wist for an idea of my style or PM me)
~ Curtain for the guest room, window is 59 wide x 40 tall. Just about anything goes here, something pleasing to many eyes would be appreciated, but it can reflect our style too. PM me with any questions
~ Curtain for our office/computer room, window is 58 wide x 58 tall. No theme/colors assigned to this room yet, but there is a pirate picture we might hang in here and this room can easily reflect our nerdyness. So pirate themed or gamer themed would be fun.
~ Curtain for our kitchen, window is 47 wide x 46 tall. Kitchen is coffee and cow themed. Curtain does not need to be coffee or cow themed, shades of brown would work
~ Matching curtains for our two small kitchen windows (I still need to measure these, probably about 24 wide by 46 tall). Kitchen is coffee and cow themed. Curtain do not need to be coffee or cow themed, shades of brown would work. I do want both curtains to look the same.

Yarny Items (Natural fibers only please)
~ Comfy slippers to wear around the house, I like the Mary Jane style
~ Fingerless gloves (I live in these almost year round!) I have a few examples in my pintrest. Grey, green, purple, and blue are great color choices (pm me if you have another color idea)
~ Wrist cuffs
~ Wash cloths, any size/color

Any Fibers (Fabric, Yarn, Embroidery, etc)
~ Newsboy style hats
~ Any size tote bag / purse / clutch (I love pockets)
~ Hand towels. Would especially love Coffee or Cow themed but any other color/theme is fine.
~ Rags, any size/shape/color/style, etc. If they can clean a spill then it doesnt matter what they look like. If there is a new technique/style you want to try and need some practice then this is a way to get it!
~ Organization for my craft room (hanging organizers, baskets, boxes, etc), any color goes here but my favs are purple, green, and blue.

Jewelry/Hair Accessories

~ Dragonfly jewelry (no earrings)
~ Old or foreign coin necklace

~ Teacup Candle (or coffee mug)
~ Halloween Decorations for outside, hang-able or for sticking in the ground (I can attach the sticks), a wreath would be pretty cool, heres what I did last year so you can see the space I have to work with (I would love to hang a bunch of ornament/decorations where the black fabric was last year) 
~ Halloween Decorations to prop/hang in the windows, maybe some chunky houses? Big enough to be noticed please. (I love my hanging bats from gamemom42 but now I want even more Halloween decorations! So Im gonna keep this wish up for a little longer)

Claim hazelly for a knitting needle roll (which I need to make for myself, too!)

2nd Claim 1 sent (in transit)/ 0 received

Hi!  I am Desi and live near the coast of South Carolina.  I just relocated there from outside Atlanta.  I went to school for education, but currently stay at home with my just-turned-three- year-old daughter.  I am going to homeschool her.  I am married to my best friend and high school sweetheart.  This year we are celebrating 13 years of being together, and 7 years of marriage.

I adore Disney and I also love to travel.  My dream destination is going to Alaska to see the Northern Lights.  I also want to road trip down Route 66.  I love to dabble in all kinds of crafts, but sewing is my true passion.  I also enjoy hiking and camping, watching television, baking, letterboxing, photography, writing on my blog, and being with those I love. 

I can't stand cigarette smoke, so please nothing from a smoking home.  My husband has an allergy to pets, but as long as your animals aren't all over your crafting items, it should be fine!

I claim drgdlg for a supplies package

1 claim/1 sent/0 received

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, 2 lizards (new additions) and frogs.

I love cross stitch and embroidery and I have a huge wall set aside for hoops. It has had many beautiful additions from swapping, but there is a ton of room left to fill.

I pretend I know how to sew and my sewing is improving thanks to some of my past partners linking wonderful tutorials to items they want.

I am a huge fan of Firefly/Serenity, steampunk, and the color blue in all shades. Most rooms in my house are white or beige with blue accents, my living room is pale green. I need some color. 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.

I claim padfoot for a supplies package!

1/0/0

My name is Karen and I live in Austin, TX with my teenaged dd (who typically ends up with most of my swap items), a huge, goofy lab-mix and a lovely, prissy cat.


I love designs from the 60's and early 70s (think mod & flower power). Also 50's post-modern. 50's/60's SURF THEMES!  I used to have a 1974 VW Thing and I miss it a lot! I also love Asian designs in fabric and artwork.
I prefer clean lines and bold graphics rather than cutesy or fussy prints.

I was born in the year of the Dragon and I just love them! And English Bulldogs (cute, not fierce).  I love anything magical/wonderous including fairies and Alice in Wonderland. 
Also, pretty much any Amy Butler fabric.

If you are doing a t-shirt, please not a men's or hanes or jerzees. For me, a ladies fitted med (if runing small or junior sizing, go for a large, but generally med will work) (prefer scoop neck).  For DD, juniors fitted med (size 3/5). Thanks!

Other random things I love: silver jewelry, reading, travel, art, geekery, the periodic table, Scooby-Doo, GLEE!, nature, trees, dandelions, rain, cooking, whimsical things (but not whimsies), steampunk!. For more info check my wist .

I would love anything from my wist : www.wists.com/luckdragon or pinterest:  http://pinterest.com/luckdragon/ but especially the things below.  In general, I prefer practical things that can be used (with the exception of small wall art or hoops for
my hoopla wall).  My favorite colors are bolder/earthy tones to 60s mod.  Blues/greens/tangerine/black/white/deep red (again, examples in my wist).  Please no neon colors or pastels, or pink.

REALLY would love anything in highlighted below in  PURPLE

Thank you in advance for picking me!!

Im going to claim Luckdragon for a checkbook cover

This is my first claim
none have been sent
none has been received

Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 39 and im married to a great man and mom to three handsome boys in Northern California. I moved here from OH and love it!! We just purchased our first home and are thrilled!!  I like to sew, quilt.  I am starting to get into embroidery and can crochet a little bit.  Im very much into girly type stuff and love anything regency -titanic era. I also love 30s-40s things as well.  I am allergic to nickel.
 
Here are my wishes
Anything off my wist list is great!!

Mediums (more can be found in my list  Grin)
~~Jewelry (chokers, bracelets, earrings but please no nickel posts)
~~Aprons!!  Even though I sew them I would love to see what others come up with!!  I would also like two childrens apron (both are under 12yrs old)  Transformers and Spiderman a plus!! (one claim at a time is fine needless to say  Grin)
~~My MIL is a bingo fanatic!!!  A bingo bag or a nice seat cushion would be great for a gift.
~~New purse  I am in need of a large school bag/tote!!  The strap on mine is starting to come loose.
~~Handwarmers like the ones offered at Hot Topic.com. Victorian Goth ones would be perfect.
~~Crazy Quilted Purse.  Or any purse made by you!!
~~Regency or Victorian era Reticule
~~Petticoat (cotton or cotton blend please) either knee or ankle length with some fullness to it as I like poufy skirts !! I actually wear these a lot!! (Im 5'5 email for length) (received one from farmgirljane and would love more!!)
~~I would love some soft wool socks!!  Size 7 feet
~~I have a weird obsession with knitted cuffs!! I love them!!  Chocolate brown, red, white, mustard yellow.
~~ Anything that can help me decorate my Victorian inspired sewing room
~~ Would love a first aid kit that I can keep in my car.  Can be of any medium just as long as its a bit "fun" to look at and have. After all first aid is bad enough!!   Something really creative (thats why i asking.  I cant think of anything lol)

Im also looking for a sign that says "Please no solicitors or religious groups"  I have people of one kind or another knocking at my door constantly and it makes me rather uncomfortable.  .



Crafted Items~~

KNITTED AND CROCHETED

I love this shawl and I am willing to wait longer if anyone will make it for me. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CivilWarShawlKAL/  Im not picky about color.  Would be just happy to even have one.


SEWN

**Civil War Era Cape called a Mathilde Mantilla (Think of a Civil War era Poncho.  This is basically what it is)  Here is a link to the pattern http://www.uvm.edu/%7Ehag/godey/images/s5902170.jpg  and here is an example of what it looks like http://www.thegracefullady.com/civilwargowns/ready-mades_silkmantle.htm Measurements will be provided.  Wool blend or Corduroy would be great. Hood is decorative and is not functional. It only uses around 3 yards.  I would also prefer it lined for warmth. It would be great if I could retain the pattern as well for future projects.  (I can sew I just cant figure out how to make it <frown>) without a pre-drafted pattern.  OR If someone with any drafting skills wouldnt mind drafting a pattern to my size I could play around with it and make my own (If I have a pattern to work with)

Primitive Raggedy Ann doll (An example is in my wists)

Victorian caplet.  At least waist length please email for length.

Slat bonnet or corded can provide links if needed.  Any pattern should do as they are all basically the same result.

I would love some embroidered handkerchiefs. Monogrammed with my initials would be nice too!!

Victorian slippers.  This pattern is from 1864
http://www.victoriana.com/VictorianShoes/victorianslipperpattern.html

Im looking for special kind of apron for my husband.  He cooks the eggs at breakfast time and is a ninjitsu martial artist.  I would love an embroidered apron that has a ninja/martial artist holding a spatula in each hand and says "Egg Master" underneath.  Fabric and colors are open as long as its durable and holds up.
 

Other Crafts~~~
Bars of handmade soap (the kind that is made from lye).  Lavender, oatmeal, goats milk, citrus are great however any scents are welcome!!  Or soap supplies/kit as I would love to learn how to make my own. Plain Pre-made soap bars that are ready to have scents, colors, herbs ect melted and added in are appreciated too as I have young children and am concerned with having lye in the house.

Room sprays, bubble baths (im looking for some really good foamy bubbles!!).

Bath bombs.  Also jars of bath salts would be fantastic as well. Im good for now!! Thanks!!

Im looking for some scented oils.  I would rather these be handmade or from specialty shops and not from stores like joanns or hobby lobby ect.

Hand crafted candles are great too. Prefer either fruit and or spice scented ones or lavender (only floral scented one I like).  Im also interested in the scented candle chunks that you can melt and scent your house with.  I have received some but always appreciate more!!

Whimsey jar are really fun!!

Im loving the moon jars!!  Would love to have one!!

Im looking for a serving tray that I can bring snacks from the kitchen to the living room.  Asian or Victorian influence a real plus.  Ive seen some nice ones made from frames (glass removed)

Im also looking for a picture frame.  about 1.5 inches or more wide/thick on the sides.  What I would like is a thin wooden back fitted to it. I dont need the glass for it.  An old vintage frame would be preferred for this.  Im going to use it as a center piece tray for candles (if you can visualize it will lay flat on the table) I can take a pic of the pic in my book if you would like to see my inspiration.

Shower curtain.  Victorian style please!!

My 18 year old loves Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before Christmas so anything with him on (appropriate for a guy) would be fantastic
 
Handcrafted Jewelry with Victorian influence

Victorian/Edwardian style chalk board.   Here's the idea.  Antique frame or mirror with glass/mirror removed (small or medium size if perfect).  Where the glass/mirror was is the area to write in (im not sure what would be used to create the chalkboard slate as I only know of the special paint).  Saw one in Victorian Trading Co.  I love the idea!!

Im looking for a table runner for our new table we recently purchased.  Looking for something, of course Victorian style as well.  Measurements can and will be provided.  Want something rich looking but affordable to make!!  Also looking for new fabric dinner napkins (18").
 
~~Supplies~~

Sewing items~~ Anything related to sewing is welcome!!  Trims, fabric, thread ect.(Gently used too)
Im also interested in any older sewing supplies as well from antiques stores and such (I have a tracing wheel i bought for $4 so they can be affordable).  Patterns (Burda Mag, Modern, Historic and Historic inspired too)!!  I need envelopes with a size 14 & 16 included in the envelope for dresses and tops and a 16 for skirts.  Thanks!!
Vogue~~ .. .2884...2968...1239 ... 8352...8003,,,v1178,,,v1172
Simplicity~~
McCalls~~

Im especially trying to find a Simplicity Jumper Pattern from 1948 pattern is on my wist list (36" bust if possible)

New or Unwanted Issues of Threads ( I have all of 2003, 2006-2008 Though I dont have issues 137 or 138, 140  !!!) probably best to check with me on numbers!! and Burda World of Fashion Magazine !! (I have a few ...1/06** 7/03**4/05** 3/08**)  (used is fine) Knipmode, Ottobre, Patrones, La Mode

Magazines (new or used!!)  Gothic Lolita Bible Magazine, Beading and Jewelry making, Knitting and Crochet, Magazines from Somerset Studios.  Here is a link to their site and the magazines they offer http://www.stampington.com/html/main_magazines.html  Im especially looking for Haute Handbags!!!!   As well as cooking mags!!

Purse supplies of all sorts (handles, magnetic snaps, rings ect).  Silver Victorian clasps would be great too (can be found at Hancocks).  I desperately need some magnetic snaps!!

My husband collects law enforcement patches.  I would love to get a bunch for him for him.  If you live near a prison, jail or other LE facility perhaps they would let you have one???  He gets his this way by asking and they are usually happy to give him one.  My husband loves Asian things as well as LE related (he is a correctional officer) and anything relating to the park service (Smokey the Bear gets double marks lol!!). He is a fan of Bruce Lee and any DVD (he has VHS) movies or any craft with him inspired would be wonderful!!  Or perhaps a stenciled t-shirt of Bruce Lee.  He would be thrilled to receive something just for him (It also continues him to encourage me to swap.  Ya know totally his idea)

Also I would love to be able to get him a hooded jacket with a nin symbol on it!! Stenciled or embroidered (Will send link to a pic if needed)

Also im looking for bath tub grippers (the ones that prevent slipping) im looking for the kind that stick directly on the tub using tape/sticker.  I cant find any except for the mats

Lego's for my two boys would be wonderful.  They are obsessed!!

Im also looking for a Yellow Freight cap.  Hubby would love one, and has said so for as long as we have been together.  Not sure why but figured I would look for him!!

Pagan Related
Incense charcoal (these can be found in metaphysical or ethnic shops such as those specializing in incense)
Doves Blood ink (Its not really doves blood!!!  Thats just the name for inks used for writing positive chants!!!  There is Dragons Blood too and there are no dragons running around that I know of  Grin)

I claim skittlebub for a surprise
4/2/1

My name is Robin.  I live in Portland, OR (U.S.) and I am a full time PhD student.  I am also the mother of preschooler extraordinaire, Aria Jae.   I love handmade and I love surrounding my child with handmade.  Surprises are always lovelycheck out my pinterest for an idea of my likes, wants, and tastes!  http://pinterest.com/rlynn/

If you decide to craft for me: my favorite colors are blue and green.  I love earthy and jewel tones.   I wear a lot of black and sometimes a bit of grey and every once in a while something red, but mostly I wear black.  I like the look of steampunk and Gibbous jewelry and clothing.

If you decide to craft for Aria: her favorite colors are blue and green as well.  She loves pirates, robots, monsters, rainbows, and elephants.  She also loves the care bears (80s style, before CGI got to them), the 70s animated TV show Godzilla, Ponyo, Batman, Spiderman, and the Hulk (as in the green guy). We dont really do princess stuff around here but we do like fairies, sprites, and gnomes.  I have loads of things I would love for her pinned on my pinterest, including clothing, toys, and accessories.  Big WISHES in bold.

Crafts
For Aria
-1/18 scale dollhouse stuff (she has some calico critters; I think that is the appropriate scale)
-skully hat (PM for measurements)
-Fairy/Butterfly wings
-Winter Hat (PM for head measurements)
- tees, tunics, hoodies, pants, or dresses for Aria (4T)
here are a few links to some things i really like but you don't have to make these exact things...I'm including it for inspiration about the types of clothing and fabric/color choices I like.  there are more examples in my pinterest.
pants
hat
more clothing ideas
-Pantaloons (4T)
-altered hoodie (5T)
-appliqued, stenciled, embellished tees, etc... for Aria (4T)
-Batman tee (4T)
-Wall art (her room is mostly blue and green)
-A fabric wall chart for Aria like this fabric chart but maybe with blue and green buttons.  
-Teeny tiny crocheted animals (she has piggies already)
-Something elephant; Aria loves them (anything but please no stuffies unless it teeny and tiny)
-Something galaxy inspired and appropriate for an almost 4 year old; she loves the planets and stars
-rainbow themed whimsy jar
-ATC binder with the clear plastic sleeves (yep, my 3 year old is making and swapping ATCs. Cheesy )

For me
-Jewelry for me (please check out my pinterest for ideas; Im pretty particular about my jewelry.  It doesnt have to be an exact replica but my pinterest will give you a feel for my tastes)
-Fold over yoga band skirts for me (PM for measurements) Here's a tutorial
-bags with sturdy handles as I would like to use them to haul my school stuff to and from campus
Bags I like posted here
-messenger bag or tote bag with stenciled dr. mckay (from Stargate Atlantis) and the quote, "Its a city, not a yo-yo." or "What am I, MacGyver?!  Fix it with what?"
-wool dryer balls
-Fun Magnets
-Handmade buttons
-Laptop cozy (PM for measurements)
-Hoop art (I have some on pinterest)
-Hair pretties (I think I have some on my pinterest but again I like steampunk and gibbous inspired things)
-woodland creature and the forest themed whimsy jar
-Reusable "Paper" Towels (Don't really care what material/color/pattern as long as its absorbent)
- Kitchen wet bag (I would like it to attach to the stove as in the photo and would like some form of waterproof lining please)

For Aria's Fourth Birthday Party
Besides Aria's first birthday party, her traditional Korean dol, I have not made a very big deal out of her birthdays.  Aria really likes the Care Bears, but I don't really want to do a cartoon themed party.  Instead, I'd like to throw her a spectacular birthday full of rainbows, hearts, and stars (all things she associates with Care-a-lot).  Her birthday is not until the end of March, but knowing me I'll be neck deep in school work and grading papers so I could use all the help I can get.  Cheesy  Everything on this list is a big WISH.

-this fabric flower garland but in more rainbow-y colors
-something like this cake topper but with brown hair and eyes and maybe a rainbow heart balloon instead of a kite?
-scrappy ribbon garland...I need six of them (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple) about 9 feet each.  These can of course be done in separate claims.
-This delightful felt rainy cloud mobile thanks, pearliepie!
-Paper star garland

More to be added as I come up with more ideas; also feel free to check out my pinterest; the board titled party ideas is chock full of rainbow delight.  Cheesy

I claim rlynn for the rainy cloud mobile
1/0/0

Hi, I'm Pearl and I live in Colorado with my husband and super spoiled cat. We also just found out Im pregnant! I love decorating my house with art. I'm not really into creepy/Gore stuff, but I do love a good alien movie. Anything to do with space or the end of the world really sets my mind spinning! I love nature themes and colors, also pinks and purples.

Crafts:
*hand-knit socks* I know these are a large item for some people, but if you're one of those wonder knitters who can whip out socks like magic, I will give them a good, loving home! Most of the students at my school call me "The sock teacher" because I have a huge collection of fun socks
*Mug rugs- I drink tea everyday, and am constantly leaving rings on tables and such
*dangly earrings
*Interesting necklaces
*A hoop for my hoopla wall
*Wonky House Quilt blocks- 12"x12" (here's a tute! http://unrulyquilter.com/tutorials/wonkytown.pdf)
*cat bed/mat in a nature theme for the window seat in my front room
*Wild West Saloon themed art for my "Fat Can Candie's" basement bar (Think Wild Wild West with Will Smith for inspiration)
*Arm warmers/shrug for work
*Pillows for my front room (covers are fine, I can get pillow blanks to put inside them!) The front room is nature themed with lots of tree art on the walls, branches in vases, and my couch is green
*Note card sets
*Placemats or embroidered napkins
*Slippers! I mostly go barefoot, but it's getting colder and I don't have any
*refrigerator magnets
*Something tiny and cute for one of my many display shelves/curio cabinets
*Hair pretties- I have really long, fine hair
*An Etsy or Flickr based surprise
 
Supplies:
*I LOVE old craft books from the used book store, flea markets or yard sales!
*Beads- seed beads or focal beads for embroidery projects, no plastic pony beads please!
*Micron pens in any color
*Scraps of blue fabric for a crazy quilt I'm working on
*Wool felt
*hand spun yarn
*embroidery hoops
*jersey fabric so I can make some clothes for my baby

 
extras:
*Tea! I'm addicted! Bonus points if it's loose leaf lime tea- I can't find any around here
*Chocolate or sweets, potato chips

I claim errka for a wrap towel and probably a little surprise Smiley
2/0/0

My name is Karen and I live in Austin, TX with my teenaged dd (who typically ends up with most of my swap items), a huge, goofy lab-mix and a lovely, prissy cat.


I love designs from the 60's and early 70s (think mod & flower power). Also 50's post-modern. 50's/60's SURF THEMES!  I used to have a 1974 VW Thing and I miss it a lot! I also love Asian designs in fabric and artwork.
I prefer clean lines and bold graphics rather than cutesy or fussy prints.

I was born in the year of the Dragon and I just love them! And English Bulldogs (cute, not fierce).  I love anything magical/wonderous including fairies and Alice in Wonderland.  
Also, pretty much any Amy Butler fabric.

If you are doing a t-shirt, please not a men's or hanes or jerzees. For me, a ladies fitted med (if runing small or junior sizing, go for a large, but generally med will work) (prefer scoop neck).  For DD, juniors fitted med (size 3/5). Thanks!

Other random things I love: silver jewelry, reading, travel, art, geekery, the periodic table, Scooby-Doo, GLEE!, nature, trees, dandelions, rain, cooking, whimsical things (but not whimsies), steampunk!. For more info check my wist .

I would love anything from my wist : www.wists.com/luckdragon or pinterest:  http://pinterest.com/luckdragon/ but especially the things below.  In general, I prefer practical things that can be used (with the exception of small wall art or hoops for
my hoopla wall).  My favorite colors are bolder/earthy tones to 60s mod.  Blues/greens/tangerine/black/white/deep red (again, examples in my wist).  Please no neon colors or pastels, or pink.

REALLY would love anything in highlighted below in  PURPLE

Thank you in advance for picking me!!

If you decide to craft for me: my favorite colors are blue and green.  I love earthy and jewel tones.   I wear a lot of black and sometimes a bit of grey and every once in a while something red, but mostly I wear black.  I like the look of steampunk and Gibbous jewelry and clothing.

If you decide to craft for Aria: her favorite colors are blue and green as well.  She loves pirates, robots, monsters, rainbows, and elephants.  She also loves the care bears (80s style, before CGI got to them), the 70s animated TV show Godzilla, Ponyo, Batman, Spiderman, and the Hulk (as in the green guy). We dont really do princess stuff around here but we do like fairies, sprites, and gnomes.  I have loads of things I would love for her pinned on my pinterest, including clothing, toys, and accessories.  Big WISHES in bold.

Crafts
For Aria
-1/18 scale dollhouse stuff (she has some calico critters; I think that is the appropriate scale)
-skully hat (PM for measurements)
-Fairy/Butterfly wings
-Winter Hat (PM for head measurements)
- tees, tunics, hoodies, pants, or dresses for Aria (4T)
here are a few links to some things i really like but you don't have to make these exact things...I'm including it for inspiration about the types of clothing and fabric/color choices I like.  there are more examples in my pinterest.
pants
hat
more clothing ideas
-Pantaloons (4T)
-altered hoodie (5T)
-appliqued, stenciled, embellished tees, etc... for Aria (4T)
-Batman tee (4T)
-Wall art (her room is mostly blue and green)
-A fabric wall chart for Aria like this fabric chart but maybe with blue and green buttons. 
-Teeny tiny crocheted animals (she has piggies already)
-Something elephant; Aria loves them (anything but please no stuffies unless it teeny and tiny)
-Something galaxy inspired and appropriate for an almost 4 year old; she loves the planets and stars
-rainbow themed whimsy jar
-ATC binder with the clear plastic sleeves (yep, my 3 year old is making and swapping ATCs. Cheesy )

For me
-Jewelry for me (please check out my pinterest for ideas; Im pretty particular about my jewelry.  It doesnt have to be an exact replica but my pinterest will give you a feel for my tastes)
-Fold over yoga band skirts for me (PM for measurements) Here's a tutorial
-bags with sturdy handles as I would like to use them to haul my school stuff to and from campus
Bags I like posted here
-messenger bag or tote bag with stenciled dr. mckay (from Stargate Atlantis) and the quote, "Its a city, not a yo-yo." or "What am I, MacGyver?!  Fix it with what?"
-wool dryer balls
-Fun Magnets
-Handmade buttons
-Laptop cozy (PM for measurements)
-Hoop art (I have some on pinterest)
-Hair pretties (I think I have some on my pinterest but again I like steampunk and gibbous inspired things)
-woodland creature and the forest themed whimsy jar
-Reusable "Paper" Towels (Don't really care what material/color/pattern as long as its absorbent)
- Kitchen wet bag (I would like it to attach to the stove as in the photo and would like some form of waterproof lining please)

For Aria's Fourth Birthday Party
Besides Aria's first birthday party, her traditional Korean dol, I have not made a very big deal out of her birthdays.  Aria really likes the Care Bears, but I don't really want to do a cartoon themed party.  Instead, I'd like to throw her a spectacular birthday full of rainbows, hearts, and stars (all things she associates with Care-a-lot).  Her birthday is not until the end of March, but knowing me I'll be neck deep in school work and grading papers so I could use all the help I can get.  Cheesy  Everything on this list is a big WISH.

-this fabric flower garland but in more rainbow-y colors
-something like this cake topper but with brown hair and eyes and maybe a rainbow heart balloon instead of a kite?
-scrappy ribbon garland...I need six of them (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple) about 9 feet each.  These can of course be done in separate claims.
-This delightful felt rainy cloud mobile thanks, pearliepie!
-Paper star garland

More to be added as I come up with more ideas; also feel free to check out my pinterest; the board titled party ideas is chock full of rainbow delight.  Cheesy

im going to claim Rlynn for a jewelry item off her pinterest (the quilted cuff)

here is my list

This is my second claim
none have been sent
none has been received

Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 39 and im married to a great man and mom to three handsome boys in Northern California. I moved here from OH and love it!! We just purchased our first home and are thrilled!!  I like to sew, quilt.  I am starting to get into embroidery and can crochet a little bit.  Im very much into girly type stuff and love anything regency -titanic era. I also love 30s-40s things as well.  I am allergic to nickel.
 
Here are my wishes
Anything off my wist list is great!!

Mediums (more can be found in my list  Grin)
~~Jewelry (chokers, bracelets, earrings but please no nickel posts)
~~Aprons!!  Even though I sew them I would love to see what others come up with!!  I would also like two childrens apron (both are under 12yrs old)  Transformers and Spiderman a plus!! (one claim at a time is fine needless to say  Grin)
~~My MIL is a bingo fanatic!!!  A bingo bag or a nice seat cushion would be great for a gift.
~~New purse  I am in need of a large school bag/tote!!  The strap on mine is starting to come loose.
~~Handwarmers like the ones offered at Hot Topic.com. Victorian Goth ones would be perfect.
~~Crazy Quilted Purse.  Or any purse made by you!!
~~Regency or Victorian era Reticule
~~Petticoat (cotton or cotton blend please) either knee or ankle length with some fullness to it as I like poufy skirts !! I actually wear these a lot!! (Im 5'5 email for length) (received one from farmgirljane and would love more!!)
~~I would love some soft wool socks!!  Size 7 feet
~~I have a weird obsession with knitted cuffs!! I love them!!  Chocolate brown, red, white, mustard yellow.
~~ Anything that can help me decorate my Victorian inspired sewing room
~~ Would love a first aid kit that I can keep in my car.  Can be of any medium just as long as its a bit "fun" to look at and have. After all first aid is bad enough!!   Something really creative (thats why i asking.  I cant think of anything lol)

Im also looking for a sign that says "Please no solicitors or religious groups"  I have people of one kind or another knocking at my door constantly and it makes me rather uncomfortable.  .



Crafted Items~~

KNITTED AND CROCHETED

I love this shawl and I am willing to wait longer if anyone will make it for me. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CivilWarShawlKAL/  Im not picky about color.  Would be just happy to even have one.


SEWN

**Civil War Era Cape called a Mathilde Mantilla (Think of a Civil War era Poncho.  This is basically what it is)  Here is a link to the pattern http://www.uvm.edu/%7Ehag/godey/images/s5902170.jpg  and here is an example of what it looks like http://www.thegracefullady.com/civilwargowns/ready-mades_silkmantle.htm Measurements will be provided.  Wool blend or Corduroy would be great. Hood is decorative and is not functional. It only uses around 3 yards.  I would also prefer it lined for warmth. It would be great if I could retain the pattern as well for future projects.  (I can sew I just cant figure out how to make it <frown>) without a pre-drafted pattern.  OR If someone with any drafting skills wouldnt mind drafting a pattern to my size I could play around with it and make my own (If I have a pattern to work with)

Primitive Raggedy Ann doll (An example is in my wists)

Victorian caplet.  At least waist length please email for length.

Slat bonnet or corded can provide links if needed.  Any pattern should do as they are all basically the same result.

I would love some embroidered handkerchiefs. Monogrammed with my initials would be nice too!!

Victorian slippers.  This pattern is from 1864
http://www.victoriana.com/VictorianShoes/victorianslipperpattern.html

Im looking for special kind of apron for my husband.  He cooks the eggs at breakfast time and is a ninjitsu martial artist.  I would love an embroidered apron that has a ninja/martial artist holding a spatula in each hand and says "Egg Master" underneath.  Fabric and colors are open as long as its durable and holds up.
 

Other Crafts~~~
Bars of handmade soap (the kind that is made from lye).  Lavender, oatmeal, goats milk, citrus are great however any scents are welcome!!  Or soap supplies/kit as I would love to learn how to make my own. Plain Pre-made soap bars that are ready to have scents, colors, herbs ect melted and added in are appreciated too as I have young children and am concerned with having lye in the house.

Room sprays, bubble baths (im looking for some really good foamy bubbles!!).

Bath bombs.  Also jars of bath salts would be fantastic as well.
Im good for now!! Thanks!!

Im looking for some scented oils.  I would rather these be handmade or from specialty shops and not from stores like joanns or hobby lobby ect.

Hand crafted candles are great too. Prefer either fruit and or spice scented ones or lavender (only floral scented one I like).  Im also interested in the scented candle chunks that you can melt and scent your house with.  I have received some but always appreciate more!!

Whimsey jar are really fun!!

Im loving the moon jars!!  Would love to have one!!

Im looking for a serving tray that I can bring snacks from the kitchen to the living room.  Asian or Victorian influence a real plus.  Ive seen some nice ones made from frames (glass removed)

Im also looking for a picture frame.  about 1.5 inches or more wide/thick on the sides.  What I would like is a thin wooden back fitted to it. I dont need the glass for it.  An old vintage frame would be preferred for this.  Im going to use it as a center piece tray for candles (if you can visualize it will lay flat on the table) I can take a pic of the pic in my book if you would like to see my inspiration.

Shower curtain.  Victorian style please!!

My 18 year old loves Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before Christmas so anything with him on (appropriate for a guy) would be fantastic
 
Handcrafted Jewelry with Victorian influence

Victorian/Edwardian style chalk board.   Here's the idea.  Antique frame or mirror with glass/mirror removed (small or medium size if perfect).  Where the glass/mirror was is the area to write in (im not sure what would be used to create the chalkboard slate as I only know of the special paint).  Saw one in Victorian Trading Co.  I love the idea!!

Im looking for a table runner for our new table we recently purchased.  Looking for something, of course Victorian style as well.  Measurements can and will be provided.  Want something rich looking but affordable to make!!  Also looking for new fabric dinner napkins (18").
 
~~Supplies~~

Sewing items~~ Anything related to sewing is welcome!!  Trims, fabric, thread ect.(Gently used too)
Im also interested in any older sewing supplies as well from antiques stores and such (I have a tracing wheel i bought for $4 so they can be affordable).  Patterns (Burda Mag, Modern, Historic and Historic inspired too)!!  I need envelopes with a size 14 & 16 included in the envelope for dresses and tops and a 16 for skirts.  Thanks!!
Vogue~~ .. .2884...2968...1239 ... 8352...8003,,,v1178,,,v1172

New or Unwanted Issues of Threads ( I have all of 2003, 2006-2008 Though I dont have issues 137 or 138, 140  !!!) probably best to check with me on numbers!! and Burda World of Fashion Magazine !! (I have a few ...1/06** 7/03**4/05** 3/08**)  (used is fine) Knipmode, Ottobre, Patrones, La Mode

My husband collects law enforcement patches.  I would love to get a bunch for him for him.  If you live near a prison, jail or other LE facility perhaps they would let you have one???  He gets his this way by asking and they are usually happy to give him one.  My husband loves Asian things as well as LE related (he is a correctional officer) and anything relating to the park service (Smokey the Bear gets double marks lol!!). He is a fan of Bruce Lee and any DVD (he has VHS) movies or any craft with him inspired would be wonderful!!  Or perhaps a stenciled t-shirt of Bruce Lee.  He would be thrilled to receive something just for him (It also continues him to encourage me to swap.  Ya know totally his idea)

I claim xladyluckx for some fingerless mittens, somewhat like some of the ones on her wist Wink

My first claim, 1/0/0  (it's nice to be back!)

Hello, Im Kirsten, Im a full time student. I live in New Zealand, married with two stepsons and two spoilt cats. I love art and I do a lot of drawing and printmaking.

Colours: particularly blue/green/teal/aqua, natural tones, or black and white; not so keen on pastels and pinks/purples (though dusty/dull shades can be nice).
Metals: silver, copper or antiqued finishes, rather than gold.
Styles: plainish and textured rather than very patterned. Natural linen, monochromatic prints rather than very multi-coloured. Some styles I particularly like are mid-century modern, Scandinavian, Japanese (but not kawaii).

Think artsy-fartsy rather than cutesy when crafting for me Smiley

No allergies. I prefer natural fibres, but not exclusively. Im happy to chat, and easy to please. *** for things I particularly want (if that's helpful), but I will be delighted with anything on the list!

Thank you for picking me!!


CRAFTS

VARIOUS CRAFTY POSSIBILITIES

* wisty surprise - http://wists.com/jemimah My wist will give you a good picture of my tastes inspired by rather than an exact replica is great, so feel free to get creative Smiley 

* a Star Trek or Doctor Who thingy, whatever you like to make, my faves are Spock, tardis and daleks. (Useful rather than decorative is usually my preference, but any Spock, tardis, or dalek item that lands in my letterbox will find a home). Some ideas Tardis journal, etui, needle book; daleks on anything; Spock stationery, journal. Great Spock pattern here
* pick another one of my fave things and make something in your favourite craft medium (again, great if its useful) e.g. fox, British robin, robot (more in profile info)
*** things to put other things in box, organiser, project holder, etc. always welcome
* protective folder to store artwork in A4 or A3 would be great
*  cool/or fun/or vintage-y/or modern pendants or brooches, in any medium - metal, fabric, polyclay. (I love jewellery and have a silly amount of it already, so I may use these for other creative purposes, e.g. embellishing purses, books, home decor things - so a few fun bits and pieces would be better for me than something very precious Smiley)


SEWN
* a pockety project bag I always have several projects on the go, so use these a lot, different styles and sizes all welcome (I love my Mimi project bag, and would happily receive another one Wink)
* Plain and sturdy zippered totebag/storage bag
* organiser things (e.g. project holder, thing for storing small supplies and bits) any size. Some ideas in wist, but other styles are good too.
* sewing ideas (if you want to make cushions/cushion covers, you can mail them unstuffed for easier postage)
* pot mitts/pot holders - something amusing, or one of my fave themes, or just simple. I quite like the long double ended style.
fabric buckets are great! I like them quite big (grocery bag size, or even bigger), but you don't need to put interfacing or padding/batting in them, so they can fold up flat for easy posting. They don't need to be fancy, plain and sturdy is fine. Short handles are useful, but not essential.
*** A cover for my kobo with the corner thingies so I can read without taking it out.

YARN/FELT RELATED
* hand dyed or hand spun yarn
* handknitted wool socks (womens size 9-10, any colour) (I know, this is a big one!)
* socks/slippers for wearing around the house something simple to make, not fancy maybe made of old felted jumpers or something? (womens size 9-10) I am not fussy about the style, this is all about comfort. I will be working at home all year ...
* if youre interested in knitting something, these are some things I want in my ravelry faves (I dont necessarily want all the other things in my ravelry faves though Smiley) ravelry wants there are some smaller things like hats and mitts in there, and a couple of crochet things too. Some good colours for knits dull denim blue, dull greyish rose, chartreuse, rich or dull red (not too orange-y or dark please), teal.
* fingerless mitts - I like ones with thumbs rather than just thumb slits, but other than that I'm pretty flexible on styles - there are heaps of different patterns I like in that ravelry link. I wear these every day in the winter.
* wisty things made of felt or felted wool


PAPER RELATED
* handmade stamps in a theme I like (see my profile and wists), e.g. birds, frogs, fish, trees, art related, Tardis, dalek, Star Trek
* stationery notecards or paper, its all good (bonus points for Star Trek or Dr Who theme!)
* stationery ideas


OTHER CRAFTS
* handmade ceramic item, esp. in celadon green (but any colours are good) ceramic ideas
* hair sticks/comb/pin or shawl pin not too girly please, see wist
* polyclay buttons - a variety of sizes/colours/textures would be great!

* or something else that I havent thought of, that you think Id like!


CRAFT SUPPLIES (many of these things are VERY expensive here, more than 2x US prices)

* real silk for embroidery, any colours, any brand, any type its hideously expensive where I live (its probably not that cheap where you live, but I bet its cheaper than here! a very small envelope will be cheap to post, and will make me very happy Smiley). I particularly love Soie d'Alger (made by Au Ver Soie). If you send me some Soie d'Alger, I will also send you a tiny pretty made with it by way of extra thanks. Smiley 
    (A few OWSers have sent me silk now, and I <3 it all! Thank you!)
* interesting embroidery supplies (please stick with quality over quantity, Id much rather have a tiny envelope with a few lovely skeins/little things than lots of cheap floss/beads, and it's also cheaper for postage!) The sort of stuff I like is DMC, anything silk or linen, Au Ver Soie, Japanese stuff, bits for goldwork (purl, kid, etc.), handmade/hand dyed, quirky things. Vintage/second hand is fine.  No Aida please.
*** Id really like to try the DMC Naturals linen embroidery floss.
*** NEW a q-snap frame or two 11 x 17 and/or 11 x 11 would be great
*** nice sock yarn! Machine washable would be great, I keep felting my socks!
* Noro yarn, other silk/luxury yarn, artisan yarn (I have a great local source for good wool yarns, so while I love that too, its not worth you mailing it to me Smiley)
*** NEW stainless steel yarn like this or this
* nice paper - e.g handmade, japanese, printmaking, textured, any colour or weight - it's for printmaking, so plain or subtle rather than very patterned is best.
* small art supplies items:-
     - pencils, markers and pens (Prismacolor/Derwent/Caran D'Ache/Posca for example, or similar artist grade things think quality rather than quantity, just a few nice things would be fab! and cheap to mail)
     - peel and sketch charcoal pencils
     - drypoint etching supplies (roulette, plastic for etching)
     - inkpads, little stencils, stamps, etc.
*** 100% wool felt, eco felt < Ive never seen eco felt available here (I have stacks of ordinary synthetic felt already though)
* DMC StitchBow floss holders - just the gold coloured sticks (I have plenty of the plastic pockets to put them in)
* small sewing supplies rickrack, bias binding, cotton tape/ribbon, grosgrain
* blanks for pendants or brooches (not shiny gold though)
* nice cotton or linen fat quarters or fat eighths - the selection in the shops here is rubbish! There's heaps of wisted fabric I like to give you some ideas. I would particularly love this b&w cat fabric, this gorgeous fabric, and plain linen or wool fabric (natural, grey, green, blue). Also wool doctors flannel (for needlebooks), if its easily available where you live.
* crafty magazines Burda or Anna (either English or German), Vogue Knitting, Verena, or any awesome US sewing/knitting mag.
*** NEW I'd love to get these knitting patterns - I particularly want Lalique, the cat socks, and the Jackson Pollock socks - (no postage costs to buy patterns online either!) Smiley
*** NEW some good pinking shears (for example)


EXTRAS
* yarn leftovers/oddments in any shades of blue or green, anything over about 1/4 ball (~16 metres or more) will be useful for my project. Wool or wool blends preferred please, any weight.
* I always enjoy bookmarks, vintage/interesting buttons, etc.
* small chipboard shapes
* no candy (I like it TOO much)

Smiley Smiley Thank you to everyone who has sent me lovely things!!! Some things are still on my list, because I love what you sent, and I am happy to receive similar things again.

NB. New Zealand has tough biosecurity at the border. This is very unlikely to apply to this swap, but just in case ... Please dont send natural materials (feathers, leaves, wood, seeds e.g. lavender, etc.) Everything on my list is absolutely fine to send, but PM me if youre unsure about something. Thanks  Smiley

I claim Jemimah for something from her "things to put other things in box, organiser, project holder, etc."

3rd claim/1 sent/1 received

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, 2 lizards (new additions) and frogs.

I love cross stitch and embroidery and I have a huge wall set aside for hoops. It has had many beautiful additions from swapping, but there is a ton of room left to fill.

I pretend I know how to sew and my sewing is improving thanks to some of my past partners linking wonderful tutorials to items they want. I'm working on learning to knit, so anything you think would help me would be most welcome!

I am a huge fan of Firefly/Serenity, steampunk, and the color blue in all shades. Most rooms in my house are white or beige with blue accents, my living room is pale green. I need some color. 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.

I claim Averia for a hoop for her hoopla wall
2/0/0

Hi, I'm Pearl and I live in Colorado with my husband and super spoiled cat. We also just found out Im pregnant! I love decorating my house with art. I'm not really into creepy/Gore stuff, but I do love a good alien movie. Anything to do with space or the end of the world really sets my mind spinning! Im a true homebody and spend a lot of time at home, mostly in my basement bar called Fat Can Candies, which is decorated in what I like to call Cowgirl punk. Southwest colors (red, blue, green yellow and a little purple) but not Kuntry Kute. At All. Coyotes howling under cacti and pretty boots are not my cup of tea. Think of a saloon with dancing girls and lush velvet curtains, with hanging colored glass lanterns scattered around the room.  I love watching Battlestar Galtica, Firefly, Carnivale, Deadwood, Weeds, and um, Teen Mom. I read a lot. I recently did a sort of informal tally and concluded that Ive read 2 books a week for the past 20 years. I also love spending time in my little studio room (which we call the Ladies Auxiliary. Why yes, we have named every room in the house. Doesnt everyone?) just puttering around making things.

Crafts:
Knit or crochet:
*BIG WISH! hand-knit socks* I know these are a large item for some people, but if you're one of those wonder knitters who can whip out socks like magic, I will give them a good, loving home! Most of the students at my school call me "The sock teacher" because I have a huge collection of fun socks
*Arm warmers/shrug for work
*Slippers! I mostly go barefoot, but it's getting colder and I don't have any (these could be sewn too)
* NEW This crochet hat: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=143420.0 in green or brown


Sewn:
*BattleStar Galactica themed onesies or baby clothes for our new addition (Im due in March)
*Mug rugs- I drink tea everyday, and am constantly leaving rings on tables and such
*Wonky House Quilt blocks- 12"x12" (here's a tute! http://unrulyquilter.com/tutorials/wonkytown.pdf)
*cat bed/mat in a nature theme for the window seat in my front room
*Pillows for my front room (covers are fine, I can get pillow blanks to put inside them!) The front room is nature themed with lots of tree art on the walls, branches in vases, and my couch is green
*Placemats or embroidered napkins
* NEWa farm or city themed playmat inspired by this one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=367169.0
* NEWSomething to transport my embroidery works in progress back and forth- maybe like a fold over organizer with little pockets for thread, a med sized embroidery hoop, sissors and the like
* NEWA hipslinger to wear at work since I mostly wear skirts

General
*dangly earrings
*Interesting necklaces
*A hoop for my hoopla wall
*Wild West Saloon themed art for my "Fat Can Candie's" basement bar
*Note card sets
*refrigerator magnets
*Something tiny and cute for one of my many display shelves/curio cabinets
*Hair pretties- I have really long, fine hair
* NEWextra large T's for my husband with cool stencils on them- he loves Mass Effect, Portal, Space/The Universe, Battlestar
*anything inspired by any of my pintrest boards http://pinterest.com/pearliepie/ (its not very full at the moment, as I just started)
**Something inspired by my flickr favs http://www.flickr.com/photos/copygirlx/favorites/
or my etsy faves http://www.etsy.com/people/copygirlx/favorites?ref=si_fav

Supplies:
*I LOVE old craft books from the used book store, flea markets or yard sales!
*Beads- seed beads or focal beads for embroidery projects, no plastic pony beads please!
*Micron pens in any color
*Scraps of blue fabric for a crazy quilt I'm working on
*Wool felt
*hand spun yarn
*embroidery hoops
*jersey fabric so I can make some clothes for my baby


extras:
*Tea! I'm addicted! Bonus points if it's loose leaf lime tea- I can't find any around here
*Chocolate or sweets, potato chips
