I'm claiming Averia for a crocheted charger pocket.

claim 2/ 1 sent / 0 received

Hi, I'm Adinda. I'm a 23 y.o. Network Engineer from Belgium, currently living in the Netherlands because I landed a really cool job. I live with my web designer boyfriend (6 years together come June!) and our 2 granny cats. I really am an all-purpose geek, with my techie IT-job, my passion for reading fantasy novels and doing socially misfit things like crochet!

My style is all over the place: I'm into steampunk, I like most things '50s and '60s, pin-ups, burlesk, but I also like middle-eastern (1001 nights) and fantasy/fairy tale inspired stuff. I like bold, bright colours and cheerful patterns, both in my wardrobe and in my home (our bedroom has a fuschia wall). I'm not into black-and-white nor neons nor pastels. For clothes, colours that work best with my skin tone are: mustard yellow, brick orange, petrol blue, fuchsia, powder pink, aubergine, olive greens, most purples and browns. You can get a feel of my style through my pinterest: http://pinterest.com/naantje/

Favorite animals: owls, peacocks, cephalopods, seahorses, cats
Favorite flowers: fuchsia, lilies (both regular, calla's and waterlilies), bleeding hearts, daisies, orchids
Favorite food-designs: cherries, strawberries, pears, apples, pea-pods
Least favorite animals: dolphins & other whales, horses
Least favorite designs: hearts, plaids, pied-de-poule, cupcakes, skulls/skeletons

Here are some pictures of our home: http://adindadelporte.kevincelis.com/?page_id=112
We've moved some pieces of furniture and we now have curtains in the kitchen and office space too.
 

Crafted items I would like:
1. Hot air balloon ornaments http://www.epbot.com/2011/12/mini-hot-air-balloon-tutorial.html
2. Convertible/infinity dress http://rowena.typepad.com/rostitchery/infinity-dress.html
3. Flannel pajamas This model: http://www.thepajamastore.com/pajamas/product/bh-ntccf.html http://www.thepajamastore.com/pajamas/product/bh-bedtcs.html I like these fabrics, but also polka dots, flowers, stripes, ...
4. Comfy jersey morning robe http://www.ehow.com/how_8481076_make-wrap-bathrobe.html
5. Steampunk wall art
6. 50's style apron - with this style green to match the dιcor. Style inspiration: http://pinterest.com/naantje/products-i-love/ Thanks Geek!
7. Slippers - european foot size 39
8. Travelling crochet bag (see below) - BIG WANT
9. Bicycle handlebar muffs
10.Book seat https://www.thegallerie.com.au/product/book-seat Willing to stuff it myself to keep shipping cost down. Would love it in a patterned fabric, brown&green.
11.Feathered fans
12.Accordion filing folder - steampunk/burlesque/pin-up design on the outside
13.Slave bracelets or anklets for belly dance (covers back of your hand/foot, attaches to middle finger/toe)
14.Tissue-box covers (boxes here are 23cmx11.5cmx7cm, opening is 13cm long and centered)
15.Anti-snoring chin strap for my mother, who currently uses (I kid you not!) adhesive tape to keep her mouth shut during the night...
16.Tea cozy
17.A non-dorky looking fluorescent vest for on my bike (if that is, at all, possible)
18.Lace fingerless gloves
19. NEW - Seahorse Pillow http://matsutakeblog.blogspot.com/2012/02/free-seahorse-pillow-pattern.html
20. NEW - "Library" storage box http://www.etsy.com/listing/64834633/the-original-modern-library-storage-bin
21. NEW - Festive bunting, either in green tones to match this style green or steampunk colour scheme (dark browns, brass, copper, gold, jewellery colours)
22. NEW - Pan-religious Christmas tree ornaments - we're atheists, but we do love our Christmas tree and traditions. I believe every religion has its merits and its faults, and I would love for our tree to have symbols from all of them: a jewish star of David, a pentagram, a tiny buddha, an ichthys, a flying spaghetti monster, a ying and yang, the ohm sign, etc. I'd also love something to represent gay people, even though that's not a religion, they're being bashed by many religions and I'd like our tree to represent a Christmas ideal: a world at piece, no matter your religion, skin colour, age, sex or sexual orientation. Please keep ornaments small, preferable ~1inch, but up to 2inches would work. (Yes, I DO realise it's only May!)
23. NEW - A motivating healthy eating & exercise journal. No, I don't really know what that would be like either, go wild Smiley

Supplies that would make me happy:
1. Crochet yarn in bright colours, non-variegated. My favorite hook sizes are in the 4mm to 6mm range, so something that works with that. I prefer cotton and synthetic, because most natural wool makes my skin itch.
2. Coins, bells or mirrors for belly dance costumes
3. Beads for belly dance costumes
5. Low calorie Jell-o packets - gelatin kind. I don't know what flavors I like as you can't find this here!
6. Old editions of crochet/sewing magazines
7. Old-fashioned keys
8. Gears (how cool would it be to use gears in stead of coins in a belly dance costume?)
9. Filligree pieces (e.g. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Lak_b0Jft1Q/TjR6b6pNPLI/AAAAAAAAW_M/53L6DIxYXSE/s1600/IMG_3383.jpg)
10.Patterned, bright-coloured flannel for a grown-up pajama (no stripes or squares please)
11.Lace ribbon, 2cm to 15cm wide, at least 2m long
13.Odd bits of chain
15.Pawns and dice
16.Traditional dominoes
17.A stash of men's neck ties (second hand totally acceptable!) - the normal ones, not clip-ons

Travelling crochet bag
I love taking along my crochet when I'm travelling, so I have stuff to do on the train. I currently stuff my work in a plastic bag that goes into my backpack, but I have issues with unravelling work, pointy scissors, yarn that gets tangled with different colours and hooks that escape through the plastic. I have a picture in my head of a bag that would make crocheting during travel easy, but my sewing machine refuses to cooperate. Here's a sketch:
http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd33/Altijdjouwnaantje/crochettravelbag.jpg
Clasp: like what you find on most lanyards, narrower is better than wider.
Blue print, left: current yarn pocket, kept closed with elastic - or draw string, I'm not sure: you don't want to pull the yarn out off the pocket while you're working
Blue print, right: pocket for other yarn colours, preferably kept tight with elastic
Size: I think anything from 30cm x 25cm to 40cm x 30cm would work quite well?

Shipping note
When sending to me from outside the EU, please remember to attach a customs form CN22. Make sure to mark it as a gift, and please keep the value of whatever you are sending under 45 euros (nothing in this swap is supposed to be that expensive anyway) because if the value is greater, that will cause costs on my side (VAT, customs, adminstration for the post office,..) This is especially important if you buy things online and have them ship to me directly: make sure the shopkeeper knows to indicate it is a gift, because the limit for things you buy is only 22 euros, or buy from EU-based sellers.

Oh why not, one more claim won't hurt me! LOL

I'll claim lindyv321 for some jewelry items based on her pinterest. She has so many neat options I can make! Grin

Claim #4 overall / 1 outstanding / 1 in transit / 1 received

About Me
35 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. Healing and healthy after major surgery October 5th last year. Engaged as of 12/25/11! Grin
Just turned 35 on May 16th and with all my medical problems last year, this has been a reason to celebrate! Grin

  • 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!

ALLERGIES
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!

Sewing
-- 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 and fabrics that I like as well. Doesn't need to be form-fitting, can be a little roomy. I'm generally a US size 4 and can send measurements!

 NEW Grin Grin -- DSLR Camera Bag Examples are HERE (To fit a Canon EOS Rebel XS) thanks sparks!

 NEW Grin  -- DSLR Camera Strap or Strap cover I have some examples HERE

 NEW Grin -- Mircowave Bowl Potholder. OMG this is brilliant! (Would ultimately like 2; one for me and one for Love.)

 NEW -- Sewn/Quilted Fabric Trivets You know, the flat heat-resistant pot holder type things you put between your pan and the counter? Examples: this or this or this or this or this. More examples in sewn pin board These are just examples. You can use other fabrics/colors that you think I'd like. (Browns/blues, fun fabrics, cute patterns, etc.) I have regular "glove" potholders for getting things into/out of oven, now I need FLAT, insulated ones.

 NEW -- Reusable fabric produce bag This is great! I hate wasting a plastic bag for one or two apples.

 NEW --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 so I really want to do something this year!

 NEW --Belle Halloween Costume I would also love to dress up as Belle in her "Provincial Town" blue dress. (Can be regular cotton too like THIS) 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 so I really want to do something this year!!

 --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!)

 NEW --Crochet Parasol. It's so pretty! Can be rainbow, or tones of blues, or blues/browns, or purples or earthy (greens/browns) colors. I just love this idea in general!

 -- 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 Surprise Item - You can find more items HERE on my knit/crochet pin board.



Embellished Clothing (Dyed, Embroidered, Screenprinted, etc.)
INFO FOR ALL TEES: Fitted / "babydoll" styles only please! If Misses, size small. If Jr's size medium. I like jewel tones for shirts (emerald green, amethyst purple, turquoise, aqua) plus browns and greys best. Short sleeve or 3/4 sleeve. Scoop or V-neck best (but not so low I have to wear another shirt under it please!) I like Target's Mossimo shirts a lot but other brands are good too.

 -- Grin Decorated/Screnprinted/Stenciled/Bleach Pen/Embroidered Fitted T-Shirts Could be in many styles/colors based on my likes or shirt inspiration.

 --  Grin Batik/Dyed/Ombre/ "Shibori-Dyed" Fitted Tee Shirts Could be in many styles/colors based on my likes or shirt inspiration.

 -- Galaxy Shirt! I love this. I think either black tee, dark navy blue or dark purple tee is best for the base shirt color. 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!!

 -- Bleach Pen Tees Could be in many styles/colors based on my likes or shirt inspiration.

 --Embroidered Shirt I really like this idea. Doesn't have to be exact but I think that's a great place to start. 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.
Grin -- Ceramic Sponge Holder I LOVE LOVE LOVE this. The idea is so useful and the glaze is beautiful!

 NEW -- Ceramic Ramekin Bowls Like this or this. Could use some little bowls for dipping sauces, etc.

 -- 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/glass wish/surprise item Examples of glass items HERE and ceramic items 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 -- Phoenix Hoopla. So pretty!

 NEW -- Phoenix Feather Hoopla. Love this in a red/orange/yellow color scheme!

 NEW -- Heart Tree Hoopla It's so cute.

 NEW -- Window Watching Kitty Hoopla **BUT** with my cat, Mika as the inspiration. Like THIS. (Basically short haired cat, not long haired.) Mika is always sitting and looking out the patio doors, so this is perfect.

 NEW -- Dreamfinder Balloon Hoopla I would love something in the style of this but more based on the Dreamfinder balloon. This is from Journey Into Imagination which was my ABSOLUTE favorite ride as a kid at Disney.

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

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

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

 NEW -- HOOPLA SURPRISE I've been pinning some so take a peek and see if you get inspired!

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



Other
 -- 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??

 NEW -- Thumbprint Wedding Tree Painting I have inspirations here. I need someone who's an awesome artist to make a beautiful tree that we can fill in with thumbprints at the reception. Maybe something like 16x20 or 20x24ish? Canvas or canvas board would be best. (sturdy to hang afterward) I'd love maybe a "carved" initials of "S&M" in the trunk? If you leave space, I can add the date and such later since I don't have it yet. I can't draw though so I need someone who's really awesome. Small wedding, like 50ish people so don't need millions of branches either.

 NEW -- White Birch Tree Art I love white birch. They used to be all around in PA when I was a kid but they don't grow here. I have examples I love HERE on my art pin board.

 NEW -- Hand carved rubber stamps Here's some I really like: penguin, owl, fox, tree, another fox, cat tea cup or Totoro, or any themes you think I'd like, etc.!

 -- 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.



.. last but not least ...


 -- SURPRISE ME! Look at my 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
Craft supply packages are great! Gently used supplies are fine too!

 NEW -- Grin Grin Grin Silicone Plastique so I can make my own flexible molds. THIS IS A MASSIVELY HUGE SUPPLY WISH!!! thanks, Averia!

 NEW -- Grin Grin Cuttlebug / Sizzix / Sepllbinders embossing folders or dies for cutting! Just got a Cuttlebug and want a bunch!! I've got some favorites listed HERE. Used is fine!

 NEW -- Cuttlebug 6-by-9 Folder Like THIS so I can use letters to emboss. Such as...

 NEW -- Cuttlebug "Songbird" Plate like THIS. The letters let me emboss words. But you need the 6-by-9 folder to do it.

 NEW -- Grin Cuttlebug Adapter Plate so I can use other brands of dies.

 NEW -- Glue Gun Holder This is genius. If you're crafty with wood, you could probably easily make it too.

  -- 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.

 -- 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 and/or lowercase. I have a hammer and anvil but need the stamps!

 -- Grin Grin Metal number stamps 0-9. I have a hammer and anvil but need the stamps!

 -- 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!

 -- 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.)

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

 NEW -- Monin Blackberry Syrup I had this yummy blackberry iced tea at Chili's and this is what they use. I think you can find it at bar/restaurant supply stores too?

NEW -- Anywhere on the Page Punches These are great! I love the heart starry sky (received!) and snow flurries.



Extras

 --  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 really want to give this a shot!  Hope you don't mind I claimed you again!)

6/5/5


Hi everyone, I'm so totally new to the Wish Swap, but not new to chain swaps, so lets do this!  I’m Jill (shocker!) and I live in Spokane WA, USA with my wonderful husband.  We live in a pet free apartment (not by our choosing, lol!) and smoke free.  My husband and I are nerds, and currently involved in the life-consuming game, World of Warcraft.  I love to read, cook, bake, and craft.  I’m unfortunately not a knitter or crocheter, but I hope to be one someday!

I claim thatwhatshesaid for a couple of set of pillowcases!!

This is my second claim
none has been sent
none has been received

Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 39 and im married to a great man and mom to three handsome boys in Northern California. I moved here from OH and love it!! We just purchased our first home and are thrilled!!  I like to sew, quilt.  I am starting to get into embroidery and can crochet a little bit.  Im very much into girly type stuff and love anything regency -titanic era. I also love 30s-40s things as well.  I am allergic to nickel.
 
Here are my wishes
Anything off my wist list is great!!

New items
pair of black leg warmers (for hubby) or/and a red pair for me!!  (one pair at a time is fine!!)

Mediums (more can be found in my list  Grin)
~~Jewelry (chokers, bracelets, earrings but please no nickel posts)
~~Aprons!!  Even though I sew them I would love to see what others come up with!!  I would also like two childrens apron (both are under 12yrs old)  Transformers and Spiderman a plus!! (one claim at a time is fine needless to say  Grin)
~~My MIL is a bingo fanatic!!!  A bingo bag or a nice seat cushion would be great for a gift.
~~New purse
~~Hand warmers Victorian Goth ones would be perfect.
~~Crazy Quilted Purse.  Or any purse made by you!!
~~Regency or Victorian era Reticule  (have received but more are always welcome here!!)
~~Petticoat (cotton or cotton blend please) either knee or ankle length with some fullness to it as I like poufy skirts !! I actually wear these a lot!! (Im 5'5 email for length) (received one from farmgirljane and would love more!!)
~~I would love some soft wool socks!!  Size 7 feet  Or a pair of socks with eyelet lace sewn around the cuffs (remember to stretch the sock a bit or it wont fit  Grin)
~~I have a weird obsession with knitted cuffs!! I love them!!  Chocolate brown, red.
~~ Anything that can help me decorate my Victorian inspired sewing room
~~ Would love a first aid kit that I can keep in my car.  Can be of any medium just as long as its a bit "fun" to look at and have. After all first aid is bad enough!!   Something really creative (thats why i asking.  I cant think of anything lol)

Im also looking for a sign that says "Please no solicitors or religious groups"  I have people of one kind or another knocking at my door constantly and it makes me rather uncomfortable.

Crafted Items~~

KNITTED AND CROCHETED

I love this shawl and I am willing to wait longer if anyone will make it for me. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CivilWarShawlKAL/  Im not picky about color.  Would be just happy to even have one.


SEWN

**Civil War Era Cape called a Mathilde Mantilla (Think of a Civil War era Poncho.  This is basically what it is)  Here is a link to the pattern http://www.uvm.edu/%7Ehag/godey/images/s5902170.jpg  and here is an example of what it looks like http://www.thegracefullady.com/civilwargowns/ready-mades_silkmantle.htm Measurements will be provided.  Wool blend or Corduroy would be great. Hood is decorative and is not functional. It only uses around 3 yards.  I would also prefer it lined for warmth. It would be great if I could retain the pattern as well for future projects.  (I can sew I just cant figure out how to make it <frown>) without a pre-drafted pattern.  OR If someone with any drafting skills wouldn’t mind drafting a pattern to my size I could play around with it and make my own (If I have a pattern to work with)

Primitive Raggedy Ann doll (An example is in my wists)

Victorian caplet.  At least waist length please email for length.

Slat bonnet or corded can provide links if needed.  Any pattern should do as they are all basically the same result.

I would love some embroidered handkerchiefs. Monogrammed with my initials would be nice too!! (received more is welcomed)

Victorian slippers.  This pattern is from 1864
http://www.victoriana.com/VictorianShoes/victorianslipperpattern.html

Im looking for special kind of apron for my husband.  He cooks the eggs at breakfast time and is a ninjitsu martial artist.  I would love an embroidered apron that has a ninja/martial artist holding a spatula in each hand and says "Egg Master" underneath.  Fabric and colors are open as long as its durable and holds up.
 

Other Crafts~~~
Bars of handmade soap (the kind that is made from lye).  Lavender, oatmeal, goats milk, citrus are great however any scents are welcome!!  Or soap supplies/kit as I would love to learn how to make my own.  Plain Pre-made soap bars (cold press i think they are called) that are ready to have scents, colors, herbs ect melted and added in are appreciated too as I have young children and am concerned with having lye in the house.  <USA only>    Sad

Room sprays, bubble baths (im looking for some really good foamy bubbles!!).

Bath bombs.  Also jars of bath salts would be fantastic as well. Im good for now!! Thanks!!

Im looking for some scented oils.  I would rather these be handmade or from specialty shops and not from stores like joanns or hobby lobby ect.

Hand crafted candles are great too. Prefer either fruit and or spice scented ones or lavender (only floral scented one I like).  Im also interested in the scented candle chunks that you can melt and scent your house with.  I have received some but always appreciate more!!

Whimsey jar are really fun!!

Im loving the moon jars!! Would love to have one!! (babalina sent me two, hubby wants more lol)

Im looking for a serving tray that I can bring snacks from the kitchen to the living room.  Asian or Victorian influence a real plus.  Ive seen some nice ones made from frames (glass removed)

Im also looking for a picture frame.  about 1.5 inches or more wide/thick on the sides.  What I would like is a thin wooden back fitted to it. I dont need the glass for it.  An old vintage frame would be preferred for this.  Im going to use it as a center piece tray for candles (if you can visualize it will lay flat on the table) I can take a pic of the pic in my book if you would like to see my inspiration.

Shower curtain.  Victorian style please!! Please contact for colors.

My 18 year old loves Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before Christmas so anything with him on (appropriate for a guy) would be fantastic
 
Handcrafted Jewelry with Victorian influence

Im looking for a table runner for our new table we recently purchased.  Looking for something, of course Victorian style as well.  Measurements can and will be provided.  Want something rich looking but affordable to make!!  Also looking for new fabric dinner napkins (18").
 
~~Supplies~~

Sewing items~~ Anything related to sewing is welcome!!  Trims, fabric, thread ect.(Gently used too)
Im also interested in any older sewing supplies as well from antiques stores and such (I have a tracing wheel i bought for $4 so they can be affordable).  Patterns (Burda Mag, Modern, Historic and Historic inspired too)!!  I need envelopes with a size 14 & 16 included in the envelope for dresses and tops and a 16 for skirts.  Thanks!!
Vogue~~ .. .2884...2968...1239 ... 8352...8003,,,v1178,,,v1172

New or Unwanted Issues of Threads ( I have all of 2003, 2006-2008 Though I dont have issues 137 or 138, 140  !!!) probably best to check with me on numbers!! and Burda World of Fashion Magazine !! (I have a few ...1/06** 7/03**4/05** 3/08**)  (used is fine) Knipmode, Ottobre, Patrones, La Mode

He is a fan of Bruce Lee and any DVD (he has VHS) movies or any craft with him inspired would be wonderful!!  Or perhaps a stenciled t-shirt of Bruce Lee.  He would be thrilled to receive something just for him (It also continues him to encourage me to swap.  Ya know totally his idea)
