I'll claim mama24boyz for I would LOVE a charm bracelet or a Tree of Life Pendant or a birds nest pendant with the kids birthstone colours or something like it, Quenton March, Liam August, Aidan August, Ethan April, Daysie May My specialty!

First claim this round!

About Me
34 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats.
  • My favorite colors are jewel tones (like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber) or earth tones (like greens/browns together).
  • My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy.
  • My favorite colors for shirts/clothes are browns, greens, purples, and both heather and charcoal greys.
  • I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together
  • I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.)
  • My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes.
  • My favorite flower is the Daffodil.
  • My favorite movie is Back to the Future
  • My favorite hobbies include: reading, photography and I love all things Disney!

I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.

Crafty Wishes

 Grin = BIG WISH!

-- A simple robe. I really like this kimono style. Doesn't have to be exactly like that but I like the Japanese/Asian/Cherry Blossom influence, but it could be other colors/patterns that I like as well. Doesn't need to be form-fitting, can be a little roomy just not too oversized. I'm generally a US size 4 and can send measurements!

 --Greek Goddess Halloween Costume I love this so much. I've wanted one like this for a couple years. It would be awesome to have one sewn to fit me versus generic costume sizes. Would be happy to provide measurements. I had to miss Halloween last year because of surgery but it's never too early to plan for the next!

 --Belle Halloween Costume I would also love to dress up as Belle in her "Provincial Town" blue dress. This is a very simple outfit but hard to assemble from ready-made parts. Again, would send any measurements needed!  I had to miss Halloween last year because of surgery but it's never too early to plan for the next!

 NEW -- Quilted Table/Buffet Runner. I have an antique butler's chest/buffet sideboard that's about 54" in length and I would love something like this to put on the top as a runner to protect it. This pattern is very nice and the colors are good, though it could be more brown/blue or more earthy as well.

NEW --Plastic bag holder Would help organize my laundry room a little more! Wink

 -- Kitchenaid Mixer Cover Mine is the Classic (seen here) and I have a few examples of covers I like here also this or this style in different fabric (Could also be other fabrics you think I'd like! More fabric examples here as well.) I could really use this!! Mine has no cover now at all!

 --Sewing Surprise There are tons of sewn things on my pinterest as well!

Knitting & Crochet
-- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. There are some wisted here for inspiration. (And yes, thick ones for around the house are perfect too!)

 -- GORGOUS Knit Shrug. I love cables. I'm sure this is massively huge, but I love it so much I'm putting it on the list anyway. LOL

 -- Knit or Crochet Wist Item - You can find crochet items here and knit items here.

Embellished Clothing (Dyed, Embroidered, Screenprinted, etc.)
-- Grin Decorated/Screnprinted/Stenciled/Bleach Pen/Embroidered Fitted T-Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. Fitted (not the "unisex" ones that are boxy) in V-neck, scoop or whatever (just nothing that's so low cut it requires another shirt underneath) in size small or US 4 equivalent. (I like the ones from Target a lot but am open to others too!) I have a bunch of styles I love WISTED or PINNED for inspiration.

 --  Grin Batik/Dyed/Ombre/ "Shibori-Dyed" Fitted Tee Shirts Like above, short sleeve, 3/4 or long sleeve is fine so long as it's fitted. I like styles like WISTED or PINNED.

 NEW -- Galaxy Shirt! I love this. I think either black tee, dark navy blue or dark purple tee is best for the base shirt color. Fitted, size small (misses) or medium (jr's) I can't be around bleach (allergic to the vapors) so I can't make this for myself but I'd love someone to make one for me!!

 NEW -- Bleach Pen Tees  Fitted styles only please, size small (if misses) or medium (if jr's) Could be in many styles/colors based on my likes or shirt inspiration.

 -- Embroidered PhoenixFire Designs Logo Shirt If anyone has a computerized embroidery machine where you can take a digital image and put it on a shirt, I would LOVE to get a ladies fitted polo or cute, fitted V-neck tee with my PFD logo. That would rock. (Maybe on navy or grey or something that would make the color pop.) Let me know if you need a different image!

 --Embroidered Shirt I really like this idea. Doesn't have to be exact but I think that's a great place to start. Fitted shirt only please, size small if Misses or medium if Jr's cut. Jewel tones, browns, greys, etc. Maybe flowers, trees, branches, etc.? Front back, both - I just like this idea a lot.

 -- Witch Ruby Slippers. These are too cool. I wear a 6.5 and would prefer a shorter heel more like 2" or so but these are just totally awesome.

Glass, Ceramics, Pottery, Etc.
NEW -- Ceramic Sponge Holder I LOVE LOVE LOVE this. The idea is so useful and the glaze is beautiful!

 NEW -- Ceramic Oversized Soup Mug I've got several I love pinned here.

 -- Ceramic/Pottery Spoon Rest I have a few examples here but really anything earthy, or blues, or natural type glazes would be wonderful.

 -- Apple Tree Fused Glass Nightlight It's so cute!

 --Something Stained Glass I love stained glass. A little window decoration, a nightlight, a decorative piece - I think stained glass is so pretty. I have some pieces wisted here for inspiration.

 --  Ceramic/pottery wisty item or anything like that. Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (Wisted items HERE or pinned here.)

Hoopla, Embroidery, Needlework
--Gil The Crab Art/Hoopla We have a Honda Element. And there were these awesomely funny commercials featuring a crab named Gil who wanted to pinch. (Youtube: I pinch!) We laugh about them still. So maybe art, or a hoop or something with Gil saying, "I pinch!" with the Element next to it like the commercial. It would just be really funny. (Our Element is this color if you want to make it match.) You could just screenshot the Element with Gil standing next to it with him saying, "I pinch!" or something. That would be awesome! Cheesy Like THIS EXAMPLE

 NEW -- Needle felted Peeps Bunny Pattern available here. Yellow or pink would be great!

 NEW --Embroidered Kitchen Towels I have some examples here but you can go with themes I like (phoenix, owls, red foxes, daffodils, tree, etc.) in general as well.

 NEW -- Monogram "M" Kitchen Towels I love this and this style a LOT. (Could also be other fabrics you think I'd like! More fabric examples here as well.)

 NEW -- Boo Hoopla "Boo" dressed up as a Monster from Monster's Inc. Too cute!

 NEW -- "M" Hoopla I love the font, the detail, everything about this example.

 NEW -- Embroidered Table Runner like THIS  I have an antique butler's chest/buffet sideboard that's about 54" in length and I would love something like this to put on the top as a runner to protect it.

 -- Bat Hoopla like this. He's so cute! (And Halloween or not, I'd totally keep him around all year!)

 --Needlecraft Surprise I have a bunch of assorted items both stitched and embroidered here which can be used as an inspiration.

 Grin Grin -- Chibi Marty or Doc BttF Plush. Probably bigger than a medium, but I want to list it anyway. Craftster member Noxika makes these awesome plush (like this and this) and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE one made of Marty McFly or Doc Brown from Back to the Future. Can't you just imagine how awesome a Marty with his orange "life vest" jacket or Doc with his wild hair in this style plush would be??

 -- Anything Back to the Future Inspired It's seriously my favorite movie of all time. DeLorean time machine items, shirts with logos/slogans/products from the films, Doc or Marty things - I just love those films!!

 --  Anything with a phoenix. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items or phoenix pinned items as inspiration.

 -- Adorable Owl Plush just like these! OMG, I love how cute they are and how soft they look and the colors and how they're smiling...!

 -- Daffodils - Spring always makes me think of my favorite flower, the daffodil. They don't grow here in Florida so I've got some wisted daffodil items here to help usher in Spring.

 -- Grin Daffodil Spoon Ring Yes, I already listed daffodils in general but I love this. I wear a size 6 on four fingers. I think this is just really cool.

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists or my pinterest or my amazon wishlist, my etsy favorites, the colors I like, my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like!

Craft Supplies
 -- Grin Gemstone Beads I'd love to use more faceted, briolette, rondelles and other cut stones. Here are some I really am coveting.
(Listings shown are just for example of the stone. Can easily be smaller quantities for more reasonable cost!)
 - Any gems on my Etsy favorites - Bunches listed here
 (examples... just about any 3-5mm faceted rondelle gemstone like or Chrome Diopside rondelles or....Songea Sapphire (yellows/orange in color) or... etc, etc, etc!!)I CAN REALLY USE GEMS FOR MY BUSINESS!

 -- Grin Grin Gift Certificate to FireMountain Gems Available here. I recently put in a larger order, and got SO MUCH for my money. It's hard to buy in bulk but when I can, it's SO worth it. So if I could get some giftcards for them, I could combine them and make another big order and save a lot of money vs buying one thing here and there.

  -- Mini Cake Pans. How cute are these? I don't know that I *need* them per se, but they're just so darn fun.

 -- Lampwork beads. Love. Wish I could make but I''m too scared of open flame. Cheesy

 -- Dichroic Glass Beads I love this mix for example. So pretty!

 --Postcard Stamp I think this idea is super fun!

 --Earring Findings I could use some fancier sterling and/or gold (plate/vermeil) ones, especially chandelier style like this or this or this or this or this, etc.

 -- Cricut Sure it's a silly wish but maybe someone has one they don't use anymore? That'd be cool!

 -- Button Maker I think it'd be fun to make my own buttons. Some sort of starter kit would be great. I've never made any before. Can totally be used/pre-owned!

 -- Grin Grin Metal alphabet stamps A-Z letters upper or lowercase. I have a hammer and anvil but need the stamps! (I've even seen Micheal's carries letters and tag blanks!)

 -- Grin Grin Metal number stamps 0-9. I have a hammer and anvil but need the stamps! (I've even seen Micheal's carries letters and tag blanks!)

 -- Grin Metal stamping blanks Once I get the stamps, I need pre-cut shape tags to stamp on!

 -- Grin Grin Standing Torso Mannequin like this so I could use it as a "model" when photographing my jewelry. I could REALLY use something like this!

 -- 14k Gold Fill Round Wire I could use 16 or 18 gauge DEAD SOFT or 24 gauge or 26 gauge DEAD SOFT. Example search on etsy.

 -- Inkless metal pen (In silver) This is weird but cool!

 NEW -- Lightbox I wouldn't expect anyone to buy it new since it's expensive, but maybe someone has one sitting around they don't use anymore? (Doesn't have to be this exact one of course.)

 NEW --No MSG Cookbook for purchase HERE. I get migraines and MSG triggers them. I'd love a cookbook specifically to help avoid it!


 --  Grin Grin Pineapple anything so long as it does NOT have coconut in it. (Candy, snacks, candles, body spray, etc.) Finding pure, straight pineapple is so hard!
 -- Beading/Wire-Wrapping/Jewelry magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)
 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)
 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut or coffee flavors please.

Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

I claim texscrapper for two dinosaur tails  Cheesy


Hello! I am a 34-year-old full-time working mother of two in Washington State. I have a very, very, very conservative workplace, so anything I take to work has to be um boring (or at least not childish). At home, we go wild.

I claim Jo for 4 patchwork snack rugs and small bits of yarn & ribbon.


Hi, My name is Monique, Im 29 and live in El Paso, TX with my husband who is currently in Afghanistan. I run my own craft business, even though I have a Master's in Math . I love purples, olive, black, grays (mostly charcoal), and blues (aquas, teals, peacock), but am in love with all the goth and steampunk color schemes. I do not like pastels, pinks, yellows, royal blue, or oranges (love copper though). I have 2 cats and am VERY allergic to smoke.

Here is my Pinterest link:

I claim mama24boyz for a pinterest surprise for Daysie-Lynn

First claim this round/0 outstanding/0 in transit/0 received
About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, 1 lizard (Poor Lightning passed) 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'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'm claiming atsuko for a ukulele neck

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

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