This swap works as a chain. The first person will post a wish list containing both crafted items and supplies, another participant claims at least a medium item from their list and then posts their own list and so on.

A medium item consists of a craft that takes the average crafter more than 2 hours to complete (not including drying/waiting time), or if sending supplies, CA $20-$30 of store bought items.

Please include a minimum of 20 specific crafted items medium or small in size and 15 supplies in your list. To help the other participants it helps if you have a link to an image or tutorial of what you would like to receive. The more items you have in your wish list the faster you will get claimed.


When posting your wishlist please include the following information:

1)   A short description of yourself and any allergies or sensitivities you may have.  Include colours and patterns you like or dislike.
2)   Please say something nice and happy about Canada.
3)   A list of 20 crafted items and 15 craft supplies, and any extras you dig (such as food stuffs) if you can    
include photos (small) or links to your items that would be great too.
4)   If you have a pinterest or wist please say what things you would like crafted from there or from which sections and which sections are off limits. Also if it is okay for a pinterest surprise!

When picking a claim:

1)   Please begin your post with how many claims you have made, how many claims in transit and how many  received – in a format like this: 1-0-1 kind of thing.
2)   Then add your prepared wishlist.
3)   Send a PM right away to the person you claimed to say Hello, and ask for there postal address.
4)   Send a PM to your organizer (oyhana) to let her know what you have claimed.
5)   You then have 3 weeks from the date you picked to send your claim.

Once you have completed and sent your claim please PM your organizer and the recipient. As it is within Canada, you can include a tracking number, if it isn’t big enough to need one just keep the receipt.

How many claims may you make?

   Friends of Craftster can make 3 claims
   Non-Friends of Craftster can make 2
   First time swappers can make 1

Once you have maxed out on your limit of claims, you must wait until one of your items is received before making another claim.  You must at least make one claim to be in the swap.

When sending information to your organizer please list the subject heading  as follows:
 COWS APPROVAL
 COWS SENT
 COWS RECEIVED
 COWS QUESTION


Please do not make a claim for this swap until you have been approved. As soon as you have been added to the list on the first page you can begin claiming and have some COWS fun…

Regarding Feedback:
There are some things that will land you with negative feedback, so please pay attention to the following information.
* You must send the medium item that you have claimed for, otherwise you will receive negative feedback.
* If you claim for a cotton hat, and then you make and send a wool one, you will need to send again.
* Pay close attention to your partners allergies and wishes. If you send something that is on the list of allergies, or dislikes etc. you will be required to send again   We don’t want any swappers get something that is clearly in their list of things they don’t like and or have allergies of.....

J_Kieviet is up first from last month.


I will claim Suereal for

wire nippers, jewellers hand drill, and some surprises:)  I will have it ship directly from ebay to cut the cost.

I'm in Cranbrook where we've been having lots of white rain - it's spring so it can't be snow:)

here's my wish list:)
I am a 28 year old teacher on call, I am also an area captain for TOPS, and I work weekends at wal-mart.  I live in B.C, Canada, I still live at home so I don't need household stuff or cooking supplies, unless it can be shared with the household.  Some favourite shows are Charmed, House, Grey's Anatomy, Mentalist, Numbers, Desperate Housewives.  I have tried many crafts, but sewing is still my favourite.  Here's my list, thanks in advance for claiming me.



1.   Screen printed t-shirts {these need to be 4x and long  , so they cover my hips}

3.   Bubble bath {but not bar soap, I have about 12 bars to use up}
4.   3 hobby unicorns {hobby horse that looks like a unicorn}, if they can be made so the stick can be made here, that’s alright, also not sure how long these take/how much they cost, so individual claims would be okay.  They are for my nieces 1st birthday, Princess theme, each girl will get a uncorn, they are 1, 3.5, and almost 6 at the time of the birthday
5.   Anklets that can be worn to the pool/beach
6.   Case for LG optimus One phone that can stay on while I use it
7.   Something like this with a higher neckline http://www.etsy.com/listing/84761439/embroidered-caftan-v-neck-boho-top?ref=sr_gallery_37&sref=& ga_search_submit=&ga_search_query=swim+cover&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade
8.   12” quilt blocks
9.   Fabric flowers to use as decoration on a princess castle
10.   Princess {but not Disney} themed piñata fillers

12.   Chain maille bracelet {dainty, black or silver and any of the following – pink, teal, purple, blue
13.   Polymer clay dolls for doll house – moving arms and legs would be awesome
14.   Fleece slipper socks – ladies 11

16.   Knit socks – size 9-11

18.   Bag that can hold – tablet PC {that will be in a protective case}, charging cables for tablet pc & cell phone, speaker that is about 5”round x 3” tall, handheld GPS, and battery charger. – leopard print would be awesome,it would match the rest of my luggage. Organized pockets would be wonderful so cables don’t get tangled.

I claim bobbiemay for an ami from her wists
(1,0,0)

Hi!! I’m Melanie from Ontario.  I’m a SAHM to 4 boys and 1 baby girl.  I love blues and purples and dark reds. I love to crochet.  I love the look of knitting too, but I just can’t do it.  I admire all types of crafts and try to do most of them.  I wish I could sew, I’ve started but very basic.  I am a crafty hoarder, lol.  I love to make stuff for my kids.  Quenton is my oldest, 15 and not interested in craftiness really, but I try.  Liam and Aidan love anything video game related, especially Mario, Luigi, Zelda, Sonic and Pokemon.  Ethan lately is into rescue Heroes, real life ones, police, firemen, ambulance workers, doctors…….and Daysie is a 9 month old little princess, that is until she can tell me she doesn’t wanna wear dresses!! Lol, and I’m sure its coming soon, shes already passed over dollies for dinky cars a few times!  Strong smells give me headaches, like perfumy or cigarette smoke, but I do like the smell of vanilla, cinnamon, lavender.  Hmmmm….what else?? I like cute skully things, sugar skulls, hearts, argyle, paisley, toile, big flowery prints, funky geometric prints.

I’ve lived in Canada all my life and theres no other place where I would rather raise my kids!  Proud Canadian here!!

OK, wishes….
