I reclaim rlynn for an obi belt from her pinterest.

2/0/0

I'm Christina, I live in the Netherlands with my sweet game addicted & philosopher husband, 2 year old son and our cat. I'm a French teacher, I love learning foreign languages (currently learning Japanese), travelling, discovering nature, indoor gardening (outdoor too, but I don't have a garden yet...) and crafting. In fact I have more interests than time..
For anything that's made for me I say feel free to recycle/re-use! As a nature lover, green is my favorite colour!
We don't have any allergies but we are vegetarian.


Themes & colours I love: nature, recycled/reusable/frugal items, hippie, animals, herbs, dark green, natural colours and materials, black, summer colours, retro colours/themes, yoga, '60s and '70's movies (especially Hammer movies), Dr. Who, and there are many more things I like in my profile!

Dislikes: pink, white, pastels, Disney, artificial, religious stuff, nothing too girly please.

Big wishes are in green

Knitted or crocheted socks (made from scrap yarn would also be great).

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?

~ 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)

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/

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!!
