I claim atsuko for black shrinky dinks and chip beads!

2/0/0

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/
  or wist: http://www.wists.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!!

I claim Luckdragon for a steampunk advent calendar (yeah, not even close to Christmas, but I must make it!)


claims 2/1 outstanding/1 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 claim Averia for a dish soap apron and shrink plastic buttons
2nd claim

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. My pinterest is full of stuff I'd love so feel free to surprise me with something off one of my boards (but maybe not my "I should make..." boards. 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.  In fact, in her own words, "Mommy, I like all the colors, but not brown...not yet."  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 specifically have pinned...she has so many so we are trying to slow it down on how many new stuffies find a home here. Big WISHES in bold.

Crafts
For Aria

- 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)

-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 (Godzooky) tee (4T) - babalina58 made her an awesome one, but the girl literally squealed so I think she needs one of Godzooky (Godzilla's baby on some 70s cartoon)

-He-Man or Battlecat or Teela tee (4T) - the child is obsessed...she runs around with her sword in the air, shouting, "by the power of grey skull!"

-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)

-hair accessories - Aria recently got a pixie hair cut, she needs small clippies like the kind made for baby hair...but check out my accessories board for her on Pinterest, there are other ideas there.  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)

-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, dyed, etc...)

-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, usually prefer the simple V-clips/hair snaps)

-woodland creature and 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.  I'd like to throw her a spectacular birthday full of rainbows, hearts, and stars.  Her birthday is coming up at the end of March and as I expected I'm already 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.

-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

-rainbow whimsies to put in a "creativity kit" for the kids to take home

-rainbow activity kits for the kids (mostly age 4) to do at the party

-Something inspired by my pinterest board for her party http://pinterest.com/party ideas board


Craft Supplies

-Thread for my sewing machine (all colors, please only gutermann or coats and clark)

-zippers (bright and fun colors, any and all lengths)

-zippers (with SILVER teeth, can't seem to find them)

-Serger cones for my serger (need 3 please; all colors but red or blue)

-Old ornate frames (can be old and need a new paint job, no glass necessary)

-45mm or 18mm olfa blades for my rotary cutter

-watercolor paper

-Gallery style canvas (the kind that is stretched over a wood frame; any size)

-iron on interfacing (mid-heavy)

-muslin (nothing smaller than 1 yard)

-lace appliques (smaller ones are better, nothing bigger than 3 inches)

-Oliver + S clothing patterns (4T; boy or girl)

-black and white ruffle fabric (2 pieces, one at least 1 yard, the other at least 2 yards)

-wool sweaters that somebody accidentally washed and shrunk

-any patterns from my pattern love board

Extras
-TEA (I prefer black tea, chai tea, vanilla tea...anything really but the fruity kind)
-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
