I claim flyingpigs24 for....stars and some other stuff Grin

2-0-0

Howdy! My name is Susi, but I am suereal . I live near Chilliwack BC. I like OneOfAKind stuff. I like my dog Cosmo, monsters, glow in the dark, eyes, They Might Be Giants, clouds, and deep sea critters. I like most greens and blues (not fond of kelly green or navy blue), oranges and browns, black and purple. I don't like white, pink or red. I do not like girly, but I do like cute. I like geometric patterns mostly. I like polka dots, but not a regular repeat. I like them randomly scattered around, or the circles are not quite perfect. And the same with squares...I don't like plaids, but they can be cool if the lines are wavy. I don't like the word "perfect" in most cases. I like things scrappy and junky, cute and creepy, and "unique" is one of my favo words. If I have something on my wist, it's because I like the idea of it, not the exact thing. I dislike strong smells, but love lemon and some earthy smells

I'm American by birth, but Canadian by nature. I was lucky enough to fall in love with a Canadian, so I get to live here now. And I love it even more now that we have left the big city behind and I can see the clouds again. The mountains here make for incredible views. The clouds like to lay across the mountains like sleeping dragons

My wist is here: http://www.wists.com/suereal
web page and GLOB here: http://www.suereal.ca

My list

1. Fox Scarf--In some soft fabric (polar fleece, sweat shirting), not knitted. Orange or blue please. Like this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=247454;sa=showTopics
2. Stuff to help me be organized--I am not even sure what I need for that...I have lots of tins and empty boxes..but maybe some one out there knows of something that is super helpfull..I know vague eh?
3. Decorated T Shirts--Large or XL men's size. I will wear XL women's style some times, if they are long enough (and the longer the better). The decoration can be any of my themes and any technique. I just want more OOAK t-shirts
4. Small stuffies--sewn, crocheted, knitted, felted, or excetera, in my themes--Around 5 or 6 inches is great.
5. Medium stuffie monsters--Any style monster is great. By medium I mean around a foot or 2. Nothing HUGE please.
6. Largish fabric boxes/bins/baskets. I think I would like a wee handle on each side. Funky fabrics (poodle fabric would be killer) or make them into monsters, or TV's would be cute!
7. A 1/2 apron with pockets--Not the bib style. And not a tie on one either. I use my shirt to gather things into to carry from room to room. So I think an adjustable clip and lock style closer would be best, as sometimes things are heavy. Think more like a men's tool belt then a kitchen apron.
8. Slippers--my feet are women's size 10 wide. In cotton or bamboo yarn, or fabric. I think I would use them more if I could just slip them on, rather then have to sit down and slide my foot in with both hands. I think they are called scuffs? I have seen a Japanese style one before where they used a braided and coiled length of fabric as the sole. I think I would like that better then yarn
9. XL Men's T shirts for the Hub--He likes skulls mostly, but anything manly will do. It can be funny, but most men's mainstream tshirts are not funny, just tacky. Think alternative
10. Art based on my dog, Cosmo--figures, paintings, wall quilts, anything. Something with is full name would be wicked awesome. His name is Cosmo T. (for Tiberius) Wigglebottom, Squirrel Catcher. (He caught one last week, he didn't seem to hurt it, or it him, thankfully) Lots of pics of him at my web site, http://www.sureal.ca.
11. A hanging organizer with pockets--like a shoe organizer...But cooler looking. Might be hung in the bathroom or in my craft room, or bedroom even depending on the size
12. A braided denim or polar fleece mat/rug for the front door. If it were recycled jeans that would be even better. This one is most likely a large
13. Mug rugs...or larger. I use them under bowls of soup rather than a small plate. 6, 7, 8 inches square maybe? They will be used, so they should be sturdy enough to be thrown in the wash.
14. A roll of not-paper towels--Here's a wee tut-- http://cottontailbabies.org/2011/01/unpaper-towel-tutorial/
15. Reusable monthly pads. Like these http://www.sckoon.com/clothmenstrualpads.html 100% cotton please.
16. Smallish spice racks that have been decorated. I finally have a place I can keep paints out to see them, so the shelf needs to be tall and wide enough to fit acrylic craft paint bottles. I have 3 shelves so far, I will need maybe 5 more.
17. Surprise me. Something from my wist, or profile, or something you are just sure I need from stalking me
18. Funky pillow cases. Standard size, long body pillow or a special size for a buckwheat husk pillow I use. PM me for measurements if you want to do the last 2.
19. Knit or crocheted long fingerless gloves in cotton or bamboo. I have a lovely pair of wool ones, but I want some not that warm ones for in the house. If you choose this, PM me for measurements.
20. A baseball style brimmed hat in a steampunkish/apocalypse style. I like the close fitting type of b-ball hat, not the box type. I never leave the house with out my baseball hat. It would be nice to have a crafty one. Darker colors preferred.


Supplies and tools list
1. Peg eyes--I love them and can never have enough. I am especially looking for large (quarter sized-ish and up) ones. Extra points for clear ones (I can paint them colors then). Taxidermy eyes are also acceptable. I have way too many googly eyes though, so I only want those if they sew on or are glow in the dark
2. Glow in the dark powder--You can mix it into any base (glue, paint, etc.) and make your own glow in the dark stuff.
3. Road kill bottle caps--by this I mean bottle caps that have been squished by cars. Sometimes they are completely flat, sometimes they are just a bit squished, but I love them all equally. Please wash them before mailing. I would also be happy with hand squished ones if anyone wants to smack normal ones up a bit. I have plenty of unsquished ones though.
4. Fake fur--Anything really. Vintage stuff is nice, because it is better made then a lot of the stuff you can find now. All colors accepted
5. LED's--They can be scavenged from toys and such. Blue, green, clear, and orange preferred over red.
6. Bits and Bobs--Those wee kind of things that fall to the back of desk drawers and such. A little bit of filigree that fell off of a necklace, a wee light bulb too small to light anything, stamps, tokens, watch parts etc.. Anything odd and small
7. Colored wire in any gage, and most colors
8. Interesting brads/studs.  I have a ton of the traditional domed, triangular studs, but there are a bunch of really interesting not regular studs out there.  All brads received happily
9. This is going to sound a bit odd...paint covered wooden stir sticks in bold bright interesting colors.  No white, beige, or other dreary colors please....I don't think of browns as dreary
10. Large grommets. Anything larger then the size that most grommets are. I prefer silver finish to gold, but gold would still be better than nothing. Extra points if you can find colored ones. I don't need the application tool, but feel free to send it along if it is easy
11. I really, really want one of those Japanese food cutting tools that makes vegetables into long strings so you can eat them like noodles.
Like this: http://www.dawkshops.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=131 Another style would be fine, and I don't expect anyone to buy this, but maybe someone has one they aren't interested in.
12. Permanent acid-free felt pens. I use all kinds, but I am looking for the acid-free ones mostly.
13. Smallish tins with hinged lids. I'm thinking larger than Altoids, I have a ton of those.
14. Glue sticks for glue guns. I have 2 guns, so either the ones about the size of your pinky or the tiny ones that are oval shaped (low heat) are great. I just want the clear ones please. My newest craft can use as many as six sticks at a time
15. Surprise me. I often don't know I need something until I own it.
16. Martha Stewart craft paint. I love this paint!
17. Wool roving (I almost forgot that part )

Extras
Chocolate
Candy (Leoman heads are my favo)

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

My name is Jody and I live in Prince George, BC seriously smack dab in the middle of the province.

I have two kids, two cats, two fish but only one husband. I like things that have a use, as opposed to just dust collectors that sit on a shelf. We are starting (through Craftster) to get quite a nice little collection of eclectic wall art. My daughter is a little 'goth' wannabe, and has a lot of fun with it. My son is four and is aging me.

I claim Myrdda for black and purple knitted slippers.

HI!  Im Syd and I live in southern Ontario, right on the lake, although Ill be moving to Toronto next September to study microbiology. I mostly knit, spin, and sew but dabble in pretty much anything I can get my hands on, including bookbinding and quilting.  My favourite colours are green (especially lime green!), brown, yellow, orange, and charcoal, and my least favourite are purple, red, pink, and pastels.  I'm a little bit obsessed with Star Trek, stripes, the Union Jack, stickers, coffee, patchwork, and bugs.  Anything used or second-hand is fine.  No allergies.  Yay Canada.    

Pinterest
Wist
Etsy Faves
Theres a lot of overlap between the three.  Theyre probably a good representation of my style, as well as ideas for individual things.

Wishes:
1) A surprise!
2) Hand-spun or -dyed yarns.  Any kind, especially thick-and-thin.  
3) Hand dyed roving.  Any colour, any fibre but alpaca.
4) T shirt yarn.  (there's an awesome tutorial for it here  I make it all the time, but I'd love more!)
5) Stitch markers.  I really like these, for example, but Id love any other style too.  
6) A knitting project bag with a yarn ball and needle print on the front.  A drawstring one would be great, or something with pockets on the outside to hold yarn/needles etc.  Something like this?
7) Beeswax candles.
8 ) Some kind of sewing-related art.  This, this, and this are all examples of prints I like, for examples.  Something similar on a hoopla would be cool, too.
9) Soaps.  In terms of scents, I really like citrus and coffee, not so much perfumy smells.
10) A cover for my tabletop ironing board.
11) A dressed up corkboard.  Be it fabric covered, or in a frame, or both, Id love one.
12) Bizarrely shaped catnip toys.  Ill let you decide exactly how bizarre.  
13) A black messenger bag with the Planet Express logo (from Futurama), lots of pockets and thick fabric, if possible.  It needs to be big enough to hold a few binders and things.  
14) Stash baskets, something like this, to hold yarn.  Or anything similar to hold yarn, really.


Supplies:
1) Round 6-8mm semi-precious or glass beads, any colour
2) Head pins.
3) Fabric!  Big bold patterns, preferably, and modern prints.  Im especially looking for green and/or brown quilting cotton.  Fat quarters would be perfect.    
4) Roving.   I really love merino/corriedale blends, and BFL, really anything but alpaca.
5) Buttons.  I hoard/collect them and would love any more, especially greens, reds, and any unique ones.
6) Knitting magazines.  If you have a few lying around that youve browsed already, Id love to comb through for patterns.
7) Any unloved yarn, partially used skeins are fine.  Only natural fibres, please.
8 ) Zippers, at least 9.5 long.  Any and all colours.
9) Orange and/or yellow sewing thread.
10) Wooden crochet hooks, any size but especially larger ones.
11) Any interesting ink pads for the stamps I carve.  I bought a cheapo black one months ago thats served me well, but Id love to see some colour in my stamps!  
12) Top whorl drop spindle.
13) LINEN!  Im dying for linen over here.  Brown or grey, something solid and neutral.
14) Clear, clean glass jars of any size, with or without lid.  I keep supplies in them and never seem to have enough.
15) Bobbins to fit a husqvarna machine.  I bought a second-hand one that only had 1 bobbin and none of my others fit.

Extras
1) I wouldnt say no to coffee or dark chocolate

I claim k8kre8s for solid coloured jersey fabric (not rib-knit) >1 meter

2-0-0

Howdy! My name is Susi, but I am suereal . I live near Chilliwack BC. I like OneOfAKind stuff. I love my dog Cosmo, monsters, glow in the dark, eyes, They Might Be Giants, clouds, and deep sea critters. I like most greens and blues (not fond of kelly green or navy blue), oranges and browns, black and purple. I don't like white, pink or red. I do not like girly, but I do like cute (like tokidoki, Sanrio,skellanimals). I like geometric patterns mostly. I like polka dots, but not a regular repeat. I like them randomly scattered around, or the circles are not quite perfect. And the same with squares...I don't like plaids, but they can be cool if the lines are wavy. I don't like the word "perfect" in most cases. I like things scrappy and junky, cute and creepy, and "unique" is one of my favo words. If I have something on my wist, it's because I like the idea of it, not the exact thing. I dislike strong smells, but love lemon and some earthy smells

I'm American by birth, but Canadian by nature. I was lucky enough to fall in love with a Canadian, so I get to live here now. And I love it even more now that we have left the big city behind and I can see the clouds again. The mountains here make for incredible views. The clouds like to lay across the mountains like sleeping dragons

My wist is here: http://www.wists.com/suereal
web page and GLOB here: http://www.suereal.ca

My list

1. Fox Scarf--In some soft fabric (polar fleece, sweat shirting), not knitted. Orange or blue please. Like this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=247454;sa=showTopics
2. Stuff to help me be organized--I am not even sure what I need for that...I have lots of tins and empty boxes..but maybe some one out there knows of something that is super helpfull..I know vague eh?
3. Decorated T Shirts--Large or XL men's size. I will wear XL women's style some times, if they are long enough (and the longer the better). The decoration can be any of my themes and any technique. I just want more OOAK t-shirts
4. Small stuffies--sewn, crocheted, knitted, felted, or excetera, in my themes--Around 5 or 6 inches is great.
5. Medium stuffie monsters--Any style monster is great. By medium I mean around a foot or 2. Nothing HUGE please.
6. Largish fabric boxes/bins/baskets. I think I would like a wee handle on each side. Funky fabrics (poodle fabric would be killer) or make them into monsters, or TV's would be cute!
7. A 1/2 apron with pockets--Not the bib style. And not a tie on one either. I use my shirt to gather things into to carry from room to room. So I think an adjustable clip and lock style closer would be best, as sometimes things are heavy. Think more like a men's tool belt then a kitchen apron.
8. Slippers--my feet are women's size 10 wide. In cotton or bamboo yarn, or fabric. I think I would use them more if I could just slip them on, rather then have to sit down and slide my foot in with both hands. I think they are called scuffs? I have seen a Japanese style one before where they used a braided and coiled length of fabric as the sole. I think I would like that better then yarn
9. XL Men's T shirts for the Hub--He likes skulls mostly, but anything manly will do. It can be funny, but most men's mainstream tshirts are not funny, just tacky. Think alternative
10. Art based on my dog, Cosmo--figures, paintings, wall quilts, anything. Something with is full name would be wicked awesome. His name is Cosmo T. (for Tiberius) Wigglebottom, Squirrel Catcher. (He caught one last week, he didn't seem to hurt it, or it him, thankfully) Lots of pics of him at my web site, http://www.sureal.ca.
11. A hanging organizer with pockets--like a shoe organizer...But cooler looking. Might be hung in the bathroom or in my craft room, or bedroom even depending on the size
12. A braided denim or polar fleece mat/rug for the front door. If it were recycled jeans that would be even better. This one is most likely a large
13. Mug rugs...or larger. I use them under bowls of soup rather than a small plate. 6, 7, 8 inches square maybe? They will be used, so they should be sturdy enough to be thrown in the wash.
14. A roll of not-paper towels--Here's a wee tut-- http://cottontailbabies.org/2011/01/unpaper-towel-tutorial/
15. Reusable monthly pads. Like these http://www.sckoon.com/clothmenstrualpads.html 100% cotton please.
16. Smallish spice racks that have been decorated. I finally have a place I can keep paints out to see them, so the shelf needs to be tall and wide enough to fit acrylic craft paint bottles. I have 3 shelves so far, I will need maybe 5 more.
17. Surprise me. Something from my wist, or profile, or something you are just sure I need from stalking me
18. Funky pillow cases. Standard size, long body pillow or a special size for a buckwheat husk pillow I use. PM me for measurements if you want to do the last 2.
19. Knit or crocheted long fingerless gloves in cotton or bamboo. I have a lovely pair of wool ones, but I want some not that warm ones for in the house. If you choose this, PM me for measurements.
20. A baseball style brimmed hat in a steampunkish/apocalypse style. I like the close fitting type of b-ball hat, not the box type. I never leave the house with out my baseball hat. It would be nice to have a crafty one. Darker colors preferred.


Supplies and tools list
1. Peg eyes--I love them and can never have enough. I am especially looking for large (quarter sized-ish and up) ones. Extra points for clear ones (I can paint them colors then). Taxidermy eyes are also acceptable. I have way too many googly eyes though, so I only want those if they sew on or are glow in the dark
2. Glow in the dark powder--You can mix it into any base (glue, paint, etc.) and make your own glow in the dark stuff.
3. Road kill bottle caps--by this I mean bottle caps that have been squished by cars. Sometimes they are completely flat, sometimes they are just a bit squished, but I love them all equally. Please wash them before mailing. I would also be happy with hand squished ones if anyone wants to smack normal ones up a bit. I have plenty of unsquished ones though.
4. Fake fur--Anything really. Vintage stuff is nice, because it is better made then a lot of the stuff you can find now. All colors accepted
5. LED's--They can be scavenged from toys and such. Blue, green, clear, and orange preferred over red.
6. Bits and Bobs--Those wee kind of things that fall to the back of desk drawers and such. A little bit of filigree that fell off of a necklace, a wee light bulb too small to light anything, stamps, tokens, watch parts etc.. Anything odd and small
7. Colored wire in any gage, and most colors
8. Interesting brads/studs.  I have a ton of the traditional domed, triangular studs, but there are a bunch of really interesting not regular studs out there.  All brads received happily
9. This is going to sound a bit odd...paint covered wooden stir sticks in bold bright interesting colors.  No white, beige, or other dreary colors please....I don't think of browns as dreary
10. Large grommets. Anything larger then the size that most grommets are. I prefer silver finish to gold, but gold would still be better than nothing. Extra points if you can find colored ones. I don't need the application tool, but feel free to send it along if it is easy
11. I really, really want one of those Japanese food cutting tools that makes vegetables into long strings so you can eat them like noodles.
Like this: http://www.dawkshops.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=131 Another style would be fine, and I don't expect anyone to buy this, but maybe someone has one they aren't interested in.
12. Permanent acid-free felt pens. I use all kinds, but I am looking for the acid-free ones mostly.
13. Smallish tins with hinged lids. I'm thinking larger than Altoids, I have a ton of those.
14. Glue sticks for glue guns. I have 2 guns, so either the ones about the size of your pinky or the tiny ones that are oval shaped (low heat) are great. I just want the clear ones please. My newest craft can use as many as six sticks at a time
15. Surprise me. I often don't know I need something until I own it.
16. Martha Stewart craft paint. I love this paint!
17. Wool roving (I almost forgot that part )

Extras
Chocolate
Candy (Leoman heads are my favo)
