I claim Saintcady for a pincushion and something else (that I haven't decided on yet!)

My first claim this round - 1/0/0

Hello, Im Kirsten, Im a full time student from New Zealand. 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
* bamboo circs (I have quite a few sizes in metal and plastic, but no bamboo. Long cables best, but any welcome.)
* 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) I always need these!
* small sewing supplies rickrack, bias binding, cotton tape/ribbon, grosgrain
* blanks for pendants or brooches (not shiny gold though)
* I would particularly love some of this b&w cat fabric, this gorgeous fabric, or plain linen or wool fabric (natural, grey, green, blue). Also wool doctors flannel (for needlebooks, only need smallish pieces), 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
*** Jane Austen Knits
* 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

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 bunches of 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 (can be as small as a mug rug!).  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.

          Thank you in advance for claiming me Smiley

I have a few allergies in the house..My granddaughter lives with me as most know and she cant be around anything that people have smoked around.

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've just barely learned to knit and am in awe of others who can handle complicated patterns.

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 something cute to hold recycled grocery bags

3rd claim, 1 outstanding, 0 sent, 2 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)
-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.   Thanks, Jamiek79!
-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
-Circle skirt for me.  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
-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 five of them now(red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple) about 9 feet each.  These can of course be done in separate claims. Kartiana added scrap fabric and other fibers...it looked great; feel free to do the same.  Cheesy
-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


Craft Supplies

-Fabric from my pinterest or in a similar style
-Any of the craft books from my pinterest
-Thread for my sewing machine (all colors)
-Serger cones for my serger (need 3 please; all colors but red)
-Liquid watercolors

-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 bacon (but that might not travel well), chocolate, gummy bears, and pretty much any delish candy.  

Thanks much!! Cheesy

I claim rlynn for a rainbow themed whimsy jar and flower garland for Aria's birthday party! 

2nd claim, 1 sent, 0 rec'd

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


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

yoga skirt with folded waistband in women's size 2.  If you claim for this, I'll send you a length measurement.  Any color

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, Atlanta Silverbacks (the fabric doesn't exist, it would have to be applique I guess)

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.  There are examples on my crafty wishes board on pinterest.  I don't think I have one on there, but I would adore one in traditional Christmas colors!

An I Spy bag suitable for both girls and boys.  My daughter is training in play therapy and this would be wonderful for her office.

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)
tiny wooden embroidery hoops, these are getting hard to find
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 have a few allergies in the house..My granddaughter lives with me as most know and she cant be around anything that people have smoked around.

You ladies can give me a great gift and feel your boobies! Make sure to get early mamo's and never put it off!!!! You are all so dear to me and cant stand the thought of loosing one of you to something that could have been found early!
