I claim Jamiek79 for Christmas ornaments

1/0/0

My name is Teresa.  I live in Ga. with my wonderful husband of 30 years and our two grown daughters ( who have both returned to the nest to finish their educations).  I have a grown stepson and am Mimi to a 14 year old boy and 8 year old girl.   We share our little homestead with a pet cow, mini donkey (he's something of a cute bully), three pygmy goats, and six cats.

I use swaps to collect OOAK gifts for my friends and family so my wist reflects quite a variety of tastes.  Please read tags/notes carefully if you choose something wisty for color preferences, sizes, etc.  I am completely okay with you taking something from my wist and making it in your favorite medium rather than the one pictured.

I really really want everything on my wist, but please do not claim me for a wisty surprise.  I would rather you claim for something specific in case there are size/color specifications that you would need to be aware of. Thanks!


I can't tolerate the smell of smoke or lavender.

Crafts:

Anything off the following boards on my Pinterest (loving that Pinterest of mine!):
   *  Hooplas to make me happy (exact or simply "inspired by")
   *  Pincushions I want (exact or simply "inspired by")
   *  Crafty wishes (There are some outlandish things on that board as well as many that would        qualify as medium.  It's just where I keep all my crafty wishes so ignore the big ones)
   *  Bags, wallets, totes, and pouches

If you are inspired by any other board to make something for me, please run the idea by me first.  I am trying hard to stay involved in Craftster swaps while at the same time not bringing anything into my home that I don't truly truly want.  I watched my first episode of Hoarders recently and it scared me half to death    Shocked

A purse made from the buttercup pattern.  There is an example of the one my daughter has on my pinterest on the bags, wallets, totes, and pouches board (I got it in one of my first swaps) and she loves it so much that she has pretty much worn it out.  I would love one in a navy blue, but it would be fun to have red as well.

A 1" wide black leather cuff with snap closure.  If you decide to make this for me, I'll get you an exact wrist measurement.  Plain would be fine or something with a very subtle skull pattern or possibly something Star Wars, either way if patterned I would want the pattern very very subtle


handmade blank note cards in any of these themes:  bees, bugs, crayons, cute cats, cute mushrooms, colorful polka dots and/or stripes.  I am a loyal user of snail mail, so I can never have enough of these.

Anything Arsenal themed... really, anything! (scarf, pillow, duffle, standing grocery bag, valance for single window, visor, reusable snack bags or lunch bag, bookmarks, etched glasses....)

Anything Atlanta Silverbacks (see above for ideas)

yoga pants in women's size 2.  Any color, any style

beaded tree sculpture ( not jewelry) in amber/orange/brown (small, even tiny is fine)

cat tent, bed, or crinkle sack  in one of these themes: Arsenal (huge wish!), skulls, old school
Star Wars (especially Darth Vader)

solid black scoodie in fleece with hood part lined in something silky so my hair won't get crazy.  I would want silky inside solid black as well

sz. 2 blue and white polka dot swirly skirt ( for a 5' tall woman) ( simple is great, doesn't need to be super swirly, just have a bit of swish in it)  My  daughter has gained a tad around the middle so if you
choose this an elastic waist would be ideal, and that would probably make it simpler for you anyway... win,win!  If you choose this, I can get you measurements.

sz. 51/2 mukluks with fake leather soles ( looking for a speed knitter )

A little sock monkey fan pull. I've never seen one but would love to have one for my daughter.  I'm assuming it would be ceramic or maybe poly clay?  If the sock monkey were blue, it would be even better.

A sock monkey.    My daughter has quite a collection but we would love more.

Wire earrings in swirls, knots, flowers.  I like silver but not the super shiny stuff.  Examples of earrings I like are on my wist.  I'm not allergic to any metals, I actually used to wear thumbtacks in my ears in middle school       Tongue

A "Bride" ball cap, visor, scarf, make-up bag, sunglass case, etc... in off white with deep purple or bright pink accents.  Very girly bride so bling, bows, pearls, lace.... are fine.


Cat toys filled with your homegrown and dried catnip.  My cats don't seem to love the store bought stuff but every time we get toys with homegrown in them, they fight over them.

If you choose something off my wist, please pm me first and let's discuss it.  I still want most everything on there but most of it is there for gifts.  I would want to make sure the size/color/? was right for the intended giftee.  Thanks!


supplies:

Thread Heaven
silk embroidery floss ( I realize this is expensive so a teeny little package would be great!)
one of those needlework magnifiers that hang around the neck ( used is great)
wood-look plastic embroidery hoops, especially ovals
Biggest Supply Wish wool felt ( scraps are fine, its for a penny rug) (I really want wool felt, not felted wool.. does that make sense?)
bias tape makers
sublime stitching transfers for hand embroidery ( monkey love, zombies, or vital organs) ( It's okay if you've used a couple of the patterns and just send me what you didn't use from the package)
transfer pens ( I love the ones with purple on one end and blue on the other, but any are fine)
buttons (esp. greens)
stabilizer for embroidery projects
Sharpies of any and every kind and color
fabric crayons ( a little used is fine)
fabric markers (new please)
yo-yo maker (I've been making them on my own for years, but I'm lazier than I used to be)
fine lined pens and markers in assorted colors (the ones that are best for working in an art journal?)




extras:
your favorite recipe ( gluten free or veg. is a plus but not necessary.  We don't eat beef or pork but do sometimes eat chicken,turkey,and fish)
A photo ( hard copy please) of the courthouse in your town with town name on back.
vintage children's books
Bunny Suicide anything
cat toys/treats
gluten free treats ( people treats, not cat      Wink)
A photo (hard copy again) of what you consider the prettiest or most interesting part of your town/neighborhood/state

Thank you so much for claiming me!

i claim mermaidcafe for a shirt for her man friend Wink

1/0/0

hiya, my name is jo.  i live with my husband and 2 rockin' kiddos in a small town right outside of st. louis, mo.  no one has any serious allergies, but i don't appreciate pet hair or cigarette smoke.

i love bright colors - aqua, red, lime green, teal, purple, orange, golden yellow, etc.  i have certain colors schemes for different rooms in my house, so i made a reference board on my pinterest: http://pinterest.com/josasser/for-reference-my-house-colors/

as far as stalking goes, my profile here on craftster and my pinterest are the best ways to go.  i work hard on organizing my pinterest, and anything from the "i want" boards is fair game unless it says "CLAIMED".  http://pinterest.com/josasser/

wish list . . . (new stuff added!)

sewn:
- a small art quilt for our master bedroom.  i have several examples on this board: http://pinterest.com/josasser/i-want-for-my-home/ , but especially the one with the birdies.  colors: oranges, yellows, aquas, white
- 4 cookies & milk rugs like this: http://pinterest.com/pin/180730088/ in red/lime/aqua colors.  they do not all need to be the same.  would like for them all to have a little loop attached so they can be hung.
- unpaper towels for the kitchen.  i like the white with colored stitching and the ones with prints.  red/lime/aqua.  several pinned on this board: http://pinterest.com/josasser/i-want-for-my-home/
- throw pillows (or covers for standard size throw pillows) like any i have pinned here: http://pinterest.com/josasser/i-want-for-my-home/ .  read captions for color ideas
- a book jacket for my hardbound sketchbook.  something like this: http://pinterest.com/pin/270066008/ with pockets and handles and bookmarks (but different fabric).  maybe a little teesha moore influence?
- a fun embroidered wrist cuff.  several pinned here: http://pinterest.com/josasser/i-want-it-for-me/
- hooplas!  8 inch hoops with red/lime green/aqua color schemes.  i have a whole board of hoopla ideas: http://pinterest.com/josasser/i-want-hoopla-loves/
- bunting for the kiddos' room: http://pinterest.com/pin/153058009/
- a bolero and veil for my daughter's first communion, to go with a white eyelet dress
- an advent calender similar to this one: http://pinterest.com/pin/103269786/

knit/crochet:
- dead fish hats for my kiddos: http://pinterest.com/pin/98092504/
- apple cozies, as many as you think qualifies as a medium, multiple colors, for gifts for teachers http://pinterest.com/pin/152651666/
- an awesome afghan bag like this one: http://pinterest.com/pin/185659388/
- a short or long sleeve bolero for me, several pinned here: http://pinterest.com/josasser/i-want-it-for-me/
- a winter hat for my husband in black or dark gray.  if it could also be lined in a jersey or a fleece that'd be great.  this board has a couple examples: http://pinterest.com/josasser/i-want-it-for-my-kiddos-and-husband/

- handspun yarn - thick and artsy!
- a small wall shrine to mary (the madonna), the sacred heart of jesus, or mother earth.  really like the style of this one: http://pinterest.com/pin/155520681/

Let's get this going again!  I claim jo_mama for a woodburning tool!

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 bergman for a mug rug.  Perhaps some other items after i email her  Grin

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. 

Im looking for a sign that we can hang on our front door.  Something that says "Kitties bellies are (one side says empty and the other says full) that way we can turn the empty and full part around so we know if they have been fed yet or not (sometimes we or our kids feed them without us knowing).  a cute cat would be great.  All creative mediums welcomed!!



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!!  Pending Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!!

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

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 frosty772 for the book Fast Fit and some other supplies

2nd claim, 0 sent, 0 received

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)

-Winter Hat (PM for head measurements)

-Teeny tiny crocheted animals (she has piggies already)
-Something elephant; Aria loves them (anything but please no stuffies unless it teeny and tiny)

-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.
-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 scrappy ribbon garland in green (and maybe an extra surprise)
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 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:
~ Anything from/inspired by my pintrest
~ Anything from/inspired by my crafty wishes pinboard   

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 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
~ 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)
~ Mug rug(s) for me, some ideas (but feel free to draw inspiration from my pintrest/other likes too):
    Colors or combinations of: Green, Blue, Purple, Brown
    Dragonfly
    Coffee themed
    Dr Who themed
~ Mug rug(s) for my husband. We eat in front of the tv a lot and these would make dinner a little nicer and more fun. His favorite color is green, but green might not fit with a lot of these. Some theme ideas:
    Dr Who (bow-ties are cool (or fezzes are cool) themed would be especially loved)
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (80s cartoon and older movies)
    Ghost Busters (movie or cartoons)
    The Umbrella Corporation logo
    Cow
    Lighthouse
~ Gibbous inspired bag (strong enough to use often please)
~ 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
~ 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
~ Fabric bunting, here are some themes I would love:
    Halloween colors/prints (candy corn bunting would be awesome)
    Thanksgiving / Autumn (leaves and autumn prints ok, but please no turkeys/pilgrim hats)
    Christmas colors (some prints ok, like stars, deer, presents, but please nothing too religious. A simple red & green theme would be great)
    Birthday (for me and/or my husband)
    Retro, 60s & 70s
    Dragonflies
~ Bunting with letters that spells out:
    Trick or Treat
    Give Thanks
    Happy Birthday (or Happy B-Day or  Celebrate in a birthday/party theme)
~ 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 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.
~ Table cloth

~ Napkins

~ Wrist cuffs
~ Wash cloths, any size/color

I claim kartiana for: Washington postcards/photographs, wash cloths, buttons, and paper bits.

First claim, zero sent, zero 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. 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, Clark Gable, 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.


Major wishes in bold.

YARN THINGS
_*I know this is greater than a medium, but a girl has to dream. Wink* Super Mario Bros afghan. Instead of Mario, I would rather have the invincibility star, or a fire flower. But, for reference: http://pinterest.com/pin/96135577/

 

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

_Ive got a pin board with other ideas: http://pinterest.com/bananaleg/make-me-some-hoopla/ , and more of a list I can send.


BATH AND BEAUTY
_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

 

JEWELRY
_rings -- i like silver and simple.
_key ring (as in, ring made from a key): http://pinterest.com/pin/256849486/
_ring with the words my thoughts create my world: http://pinterest.com/pin/18741092/
_fork bracelet... example: http://pinterest.com/pin/165180154/
_cloud earrings (or maybe a necklace, instead): http://pinterest.com/pin/55118403/

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...
_embroidery hoops -- so maybe i can start making 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

_anything German
_local stuff -- local treats, driftwood/stones if you live near water, etc...
