IMPORTANT: Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.[/color]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 77!!

                             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 77.
~~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 with in 24 hours!! It is up to you to make sure you do this DO NOT PM THE ORGS FOR THIS INFO! You must get and keep safe until you ship!
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***


NEW SHIPPING RULES~~ PLEASE READ AND MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND OR IT IS NOT CLEAR TO YOU PLEASE PM BABALINA58 ASAP!!

~~You must send Del. Comf with in the USA. NO exceptions!!
~~If sending overseas as it takes so long we are changing the rule for  INTERNATIONAL packages ONLY as soon as you ship AND SEND A PHOTO COPY /PIC of the shipping receipt ( or the tracking number from the receipt) you can claim again ONLY AFTER I HAVE THIS RECEIPT HOWEVER!!! You can send it to me in a message OR if cant get in that way you can EMAIL IT TO : CPYSGIRL@YAHOO.COM
DO not again think that you can claim again without me having this information for your shipping however! This ONLY applies for packages being sent overseas and to and from Canada, South America this does not apply to packages shipped in the USA you must wait until partner receives and send conformation of this to me!!!

 
 ~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 not the next day must be out the door BY the 14th day!
IF YOU DO NOT SEND A MEDIUM ITEM YOU CLAIMED FOR YOU WILL BE GETTING TEMP NEGATIVE FEEDBACK until you do send the proper package

( the medium can be a couple small items etc as long as it adds up to a medium and that is what you claimed for )
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 dislike and do not want  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
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]

I claim padfoot for a mix of Red Heart Super Saver Yarn, Vanna's Choice Yarn [if my store has the right collection of colors], Embroidery Hoops, Solid Black Safety Eyes and Freezer Paper

(1,0,0)

United States

Hello,  I’m Alisha, I am 23 and from Maine. I have additional info in my profile so feel free to check it out!

Colors: I like most colors. My favorite is green, but I have an eye lately for eggplant, mustard yellow, yellows(especially with grey), black, white, cream, greys. The only colors I think I hate are lavender and periwinkle in most cases. It makes me uncomfortable inside. No idea why. I really like most colors so don’t feel you have to go with these colors.

Yarn: I’m not a fiber snob. I love mostly all yarns with the exception of novelty ones(ex: fun fur, pom pom…ect).  I don’t mind acrylic, but I prefer the softer acrylics for wearables opposed to the ones like Red Heart Super Saver. Vanna’s Choice is welcome!

Prints: Look for inspiration in my fabrics board. I like a wide variety though, so go with your gut.

Crafted Items

Knit/Crochet

*Pineapple iPod Cozy – think this style. Meaning, turn my iPod into a pineapple! 

*Pink Crocheted Bunny Slippers –  I have the pattern for you to make this. Pattern is written for worsted weight yarn. I request the eyes and nose be left off so I can add it myself. Placement adds character and I would like to add my own.

*Bella Mittens – in darkish grey (big wish I know)


Sewn

*Mug Rug(s) – various ones can be found in this board for your inspiration

*Pillow for my Kindle Fire – Something similar to this. Meaning something triangular with a rest at the bottom to keep it from slipping off.

*Yarn Holder Bag – like this, this, or this

*Terry Cloth Lounge Cover with side pockets – need it in resort lounge chair dimensions.

*Felt Food – she is only 7 months old but I figure I can start collecting early

*Pills Pouch

*Flying Pig iPod Case to fit a 30GB iPod Video (5th Gen) – Can give dimensions

*Stitch Holders for 7” DPNs

*Luggage Tag(s) – Tutorial can be found here

*Pattern Keeper – Inspired by this…outside and inside

*Zippered Pouch to hold about 3 tea bags, about 6 sugar packets and a small timer for on the go. Would be awesome if you could sew up the middle so it creates two compartments, because my tea bags are the fillable loose leaf ones.


Misc.

*Coptic Stitch Journal

*Anklet(s)

*A resin pendant - I would like a clear amber colored resin with a mosquito in the middle. Think Jurassic Park 

*Anything you think will help me with my efforts to learn Swahili (I am just starting out)

*Wooden Buttons

*Rock Buttons

*Ceramic Yarn Bowl
 


Supplies – Used is welcome as always!

*Whimsies for I-Spy Bags

*Your Knitting Life (formally Knitting Today!) Subscription

*Knitting Today! Magazine – Need Oct/Nov ‘11

*The Quilting Answer Book

*Airplane Charm – either this or this   

*Decorative Buttons – Any. I especially love wood or stone looking. I really want toggle buttons, or the horn toggle ones.

*Olivia Fabric – yes, Olivia the pig. Examples in my fabric inspiration board

*Ceramic Yarn Bowl

*Pinking Sheers

*WPI Guage

*Ice Blue Safety Eyes and/or Safety Noses

*Walt Disney World Themed Scrapbooking Supplies

*Fusible Interfacing in Medium, and Heavy

*Yarn Ball Winder

*Scrap Yarn for Yarn Bombing – Doesn’t matter how little. Acrylics welcome!

*One Skein of White Fun-Fur(for an amigurumi I need to make)

Extras:
*Tea sample that you like and think I would like. Loose-leaf is welcome. Please include steeping time(or tell me what kind of tea it is like green, rooibos, oolong…ect) Also I would love to know where you got it so I can get more if I like it.
*Candy: Gummy Worms, Botan Rice Candy, Gummy Coke Bottles
*Non-Disposable Chopsticks
*Anything you think will help me with my efforts to learn Swahili (I am just starting out)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I claim AlishaMisha for a pattern saver and 7" DPN holder! (due 1/14)

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 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) or wist: http://www.wists.com/luckdragon .  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!!

I claim atsuko for a couple lined zipper pouches and a few stones for painting Cheesy  
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 the rainbow, bright and cheery, but she leans more towards blue.  She loves pirates, robots, monsters, rainbows, and elephants.  She also loves anatomy; her favorite Christmas gift was a model of a human body complete with squishy organs.  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. The only request I have is please no stuffies unless they are super teeny tiny or something I have pinned...she has so many so we are tryintg to slow it down on how many new stuffies find a home here. Big WISHES in bold.

Crafts
For Aria
-1/18 scale dollhouse stuff (she has some calico critters; I think that is the appropriate scale)
-Fairy/Butterfly wings
- tees, tunics, 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 (you know with simple bat symbol) (4T)
-Spiderman tee (with simple spider symbol) (4T)
-Godzilla tee (4T)
-Wall art (her room is mostly blue and green, but we've been adding loads of rainbow fun)
-Teeny tiny crocheted animals (she has piggies already)
-Something elephant; Aria loves them (anything but please no stuffies unless it teeny and tiny)
-Something anatomy inspired and appropriate for an almost 4 year old; she loves learning about the human body
-Something galaxy inspired and appropriate for an almost 4 year old; she loves learning about the planets and stars
-ATC binder with the clear plastic sleeves (yep, my 3 year old is making and swapping ATCs. Cheesy )
-baby hair clips - Aria recently got a pixie hair cut, she needs small clippies like the kind made for baby hair, we prefer simple rather than over the top....maybe small bows would be cute.  Cheesy
-Some sort of cozy for her LeapPad Explorer w/touchscreen, maybe with some sort of strap or handle for carrying and pockets w/zipper or Velcro to store her extra games (PM for measurements)

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)
-acorn jewelry, beads or felted, I like either style
-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 (Prefer super strong magnets on back please like the rare earth kind)
-Handmade buttons (wood, poly clay, resin, etc...)
-Laptop cozy (PM for measurements)
-Hoop art or any wall art, inspiration can be found on my art board
-Hair pretties (I think I have some on my pinterest accessories board 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, can be the snappie roll up kind or just loose ones)
-Jewelry wall organizer (I have some pinned on my pinterest probably under my Home board, but I need it to store necklaces and some earrings; extra coolness points if it has a way to stash cuffs and bracelets)
-no slip dish towels like this or this
-scrappy placemats...I like these a lot.  they do not have to match and one at a time as a claim is fine.
-Door Draft Buster like this
-Cami Lace Bands

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.

-something like this cake topper but with short brown hair and brown 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

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
