I'm going to claim babalina58 for the upcycled cake stand/candle stick salad plate plus probably a surprise. I've been wanting to try something like this for myself for a different project, so this is a good way of getting myself going on it! LOL

First claim this round!

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 (not to mention major surgery!) 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!

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

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

 -- 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.

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

 --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!

 --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

 NEW -- Beautiful, colorful shawl I just love the blend of colors in this! So lovely.

 -- 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 Grin -- "Damn it feels good to be a gangster" hoop like THIS or THIS. Too damned funny!!

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

-- Heart Tree Hoopla It's so cute.

 -- 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!)

 -- 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??

 -- 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.

 -- 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 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!

 -- 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!

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

 -- 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?

 -- 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 am claiming Lindy for Travel games

First claim this round (1,0,0)

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit and toads.

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 smidge of room left to fill. 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 going to claim mama24boyz for a surprise. Let's get this thing moving again! Wink

Second claim this round.
0 in transit / 0 sent / 1 outstanding

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 (not to mention major surgery!) 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!

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

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

 -- 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.

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

 --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!

 --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

 NEW -- Beautiful, colorful shawl I just love the blend of colors in this! So lovely.

 -- 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 Grin -- "Damn it feels good to be a gangster" hoop like THIS or THIS. Too damned funny!!

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

-- Heart Tree Hoopla It's so cute.

 -- 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!)

 -- 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. 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??

 -- 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.

-- 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.! thanks spikefan!

 -- 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 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 Amazon I know that sounds weird but I buy a lot of crafty supplies there; things I either can't find locally or I can get cheaper. Since it takes an order of $25 for free shipping, I often don't splurge, but there are things there I've been drooling over! Cheesy

  -- 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!

 -- 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!

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

 -- 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?

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



Extras

I claim phoenixfiredesigns for sewn kitchen stuff.

My name is Leigh-Ann, Im 26yrs old and I live in sunny Florida!   Im a single mom, and my son Levi will turn 5 next month, so Id love to receive some handmade goodies for him, but stuff for me is fun too!

I am VERY allergic to smoke!


Likes (me): bright colors, yellow, orange, rainbow colors, the ocean, travel, dolphins, sea turtles, chocolate, things that smell good, reading, sewing, crafting, being a mom!

Likes (Levi): PURPLE!  also likes aqua/turquoise, any animal, homeschooling, skateboarding/bike riding, surfing, the beach, rocks, sticks, water, honey, reading/books, Guinness Book of World Records, DK/Eyewitness type books, lego, music, little house books, science, board games.

Dislikes (both of us): camouflage, pastel colors, olive green/navy blue (especially on clothes), TV/movie related stuff (Levi doesnt watch TV!), lace.  We are also vegetarian, so no leather/feathers, etc.

My pinterest is here: http://pinterest.com/leighi123/  

Crafted:

- Stuff for Levis 5th birthday party: Its going to be on June 30th and Guinness Book of World Records theme.  I have no idea what to do with that theme!  Ideas?   Maybe cupcake toppers, water bottle wraps, goodie bags for the kids.... etc...  

- stamped ID bracelet for Levi, something with his full name and I have food allergies.  Maybe this style http://pinterest.com/pin/45950858667668971/  But anything durable and comfortable that he could wear daily would be great.
- stamped homeschooler bracelet: http://www.etsy.com/listing/78114870/stamped-warning-homeschool-kid?ga_search_query=homeschool  Or maybe a shirt!
- mommy necklace - maybe something stamped as well, Id like it to be simple, not catch on things, and be something I can wear every day.  I dont like gold jewelry.   I love this one as well: http://pinterest.com/pin/45950858667765789/

- Bday gifts for Levi, some ideas are here: http://pinterest.com/leighi123/toys-and-stuff-for-levi/  and here http://pinterest.com/leighi123/bday-gift-ideas-for-levi-stuff-i-want-to-get-for-h/   inspired by is fine too!  Or anything he might like based on his interests (no matching games or fishing games please)

- This http://www.youcanmakethis.com/products/new-crochet-and-knitting/Pea-Coat-Sweater-Crochet-2-8yrs.htm    crochet peacoat, or something similar, probably a size 6, b/c he wont be able to wear it until its cold again and Id like it to fit a while!   Something washable, bright, fun colors, maybe rainbow or something.

- Summer clothes for Levi, inspired by anything here: http://pinterest.com/leighi123/clothes-for-levi/   I can provide his measurements.

- hairy spoon rest like this one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=310761.0   Or some other useful resin item with my dogs hair in it (gross, but my sister would love it, she is weird!)

- anything to help organize stuff - fabric boxes, and that kind of thing.
 
- hoopla, like any of these: http://pinterest.com/leighi123/hoops/  Or inspired by anything I like.   Id also like a palm tree one in tans/greens for my parents.  

- anything to help with homeschooling: our current unit is farming and Charlottes Web, this summer we will also be studying the ocean/beach and related animals (sea turtles for sure), rocks and minerals, simple machines (pulley, lever, ramp, screw, etc), Farmer Boy (the book) and Little House on the Prairie (the book).

- candles or tarts for tart warmer that smell good, I like summer smells right now!  

- set of 4 placemats, florida/tropical type themes, or terracotta, yellow, greens, tans, etc type colors.  
- cloth napkins, same sort of colors as above, or anything fun and colorful - not really picky.  

- sun hats or visors for Levi, his head is I think 20"

- rainbow quilt, lap size or bigger, there are a bunch on my pintrest.

- sewing machine cover and serger cover, bright colors, simple prints (my sewing room is busy enough!)

- ocean inspired pillow covers, I have 2-3 pillows that are 14" square..

- some sort of display system for Levi's artwork

-portable lego kit - something to hold legos for travel

- a fun lampshade for a small lamp - maybe something beachy, or covered with buttons or something fun!

- crochet blanket, my bed is twin size so I've love it to be that big, but lap size is fine too.  Rainbow or ocean inspired colors, or something bright and fun.

- something made from seatbelts, buckles, or carseat parts.  I'm a carseat tech so I love stuff like this.  Maybe a bag: http://www.crookedbrains.net/2011/02/creative-uses-of-seat-belts.html   Or a keychain?

Supplies:

- Fabric!  My favorite thing ever to get in the mail!  Right now I really need solids, semi-solids, and simple prints (dots, stripes, etc), in cotton wovens, or knits, or in bottom weights (anything that would work for making shorts/pants).   I also love batiks, or anything cute for kids clothes.  Or anything similar to these: http://pinterest.com/leighi123/fabrics-i-like/   Any amount is fine!

- Buttons, just about anything, especially bold colors, or fun designs for kids.

- water color paints/paper/brushes, I haven't done water color in a while and I'd like to try it again.

- sewing thread, any colors (part used is fine, but no really old thread please, my machine doesnt like it!)

- empty hoops for making hooplas

- rock tumbler

- resin kit

- stamps, just about anything, I'd like to make some fabric by stamping it

- metal stamping kit/supplies, I really like the look of hand stamped metal so Id love to try it.  

-colored file folders (the manila folder ones, only colored instead of vanilla colored)

-colored lightweight paper or cardstock that fits through the printer.

- Ribbon, the kind you can sew, in any color or print, even tiny amounts are fine, I used them as decorative little tags on kids clothes I make.  

- bias tape - store bought or homemade, fun colors/prints would be great, but solid colors are useful too!

- Sewing books/magazines that have ideas or patterns for kids stuff

- fabric dye, Rit or similar, any colors for a future tye-dye playdate

- pencil sharpener (I always loose mine!)

- fun pencils and fun erasers

- fun cake making/decorating stuff - cupcake papers, fun sprinkles, wilton dyes, natural dyes, ready to use fondant/gum paste, mini cake molds, cake pop mold/cooker, decorating bags, cake decorating books, etc.  

- A screen for screen printing, with my size tag info on it - I have a yudo but I can't figure out how to prepare the screens.  


Extras:

kids books, picture books or chapter books, especially DK/eyewitness, anything with our homeschool or Levis likes themes, used is perfectly fine!
kids magazines
legos, any
anything mint that wont melt in the mail and that doesnt have gelatin in it.
tick tacks

About me:
I have a wonderful dog named Koda, a blue heeler and a crazy almost 1 year old dog named Tonks who is insane!.
My hobbies are crafting, couponing and attending as many festivals and activities in New Orleans as possible!  I have been away from Craftster for some time because I started a small crafting business which is on a break because here in New Orleans is too hot from now until September for too many festivals!  
My favorite colors are green (chartreuse), yellow, orange and combinations of these!  I do not usually wear these colors, I dress in basic blacks, whites, brown and the like.  I usually try and accessorize with color in my bag, bracelets and my glasses are kind of fun too!
I am also a huge Pride and Prejudice fan and have been slightly obsessed with this movie, along with its zombie version!

I would be happy with any Pinterest or Wisty suprise!
