IMPORTANT: Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.[/color]http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0 this is a great tip for being a great swapper and the link to all swap rules are there too Smiley
Please bookmark this thread  post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything also, please bookmark the discussion and the gallery threads!


                             How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!


~~Try to imagine a chain.  The first link is the first person whose wish list is on page 1 (Person A) - that will be the craftster member who was the very last wish list from Ongoing Wish Swap 81

~~Now, we want to put another link in the chain.  People will read that list and see if there is something they want to/can make from the list.

~~Someone (Person B) will claim Person A for some item on their wish list.  They post a reply to the thread that says “I claim Person A for [item].  This is my X claim (however many times they have picked someone – for example, "this is my fourth wish, with one sent, and three received,” (meaning that this is the fourth claim they've made, one is in transit to it's destination, and three of the items have been received by the people they previously claimed).  Also add your location, and any preferences or aversions – “I live in Wisconsin USA, I am a vegetarian, and I am allergic to wool”.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!  This means you need to post who you are claiming and for what, how many claims you have made, including how many in transit and how many received, and your location/preferences/aversions. I.E. 4/1/1 = 4 claims-1 in transit-1 received by partner

Then comes the fun part!  After the introduction, Person B is the last link in the chain, and they post their wish list!!!  YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF FIFTEEN MED PER SECTION i.e. CRAFTS and SUPPLIES.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.

(Please have your list ready before making a claim, this swap moves very quickly!If not I will skip you and or remove your claim!!  Please include your country at the start of your wish list). Person B will also PM Person A to get her address so they can mail the item when it is finished.  

Along comes Person C, who claims Person B for something on their list and the chain is built, link by link.  (If Person C wanted to make Person B a purse AND a stuffie, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  Then they post their list, and so on.

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.


After you have made your claim, you need to PM that person for their address with in 24 hours!! It is up to you to make sure you do this DO NOT PM THE ORGS FOR THIS INFO! You must get and keep safe until you ship!

Friends of Craftster are allowed UP TO 3 wishes at one time as per the orgs discretion, others are allowed 2 wishes again as per the org dis..  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish at a time until your crafts are received for this month.  HOWEVER the orgs reserve the right to tell you that you may only claim one or two items at a time if you have had issues in the past with shipping late or poor communication etc!!

Do not choose over your given limit. If a  stall in the thread the orgs can claim again to get this moving again !

Become a Friend of Craftster!  Go here: http://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php

***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***


~~You must send Del. Comf with in the USA. NO exceptions within the USA!
~~If sending overseas as it takes so long we are changing the rule for INTERNATIONAL packages ONLY as soon as you ship AND SEND A PHOTO COPY /PIC of the shipping receipt ( or the tracking number from the receipt) you can claim again ONLY AFTER I HAVE THIS RECEIPT HOWEVER!!! You can send it to me in a message OR if cant get in that way you can EMAIL IT TO : CPYSGIRL@YAHOO.COM

 
Sending/Communicating/Feedback:
YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS (14 days from the time you claim)TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR.This starts from the time you claim not the next day must be out the door BY the 14th day!
IF YOU DO NOT SEND A MEDIUM ITEM YOU CLAIMED FOR YOU WILL BE GETTING TEMP NEGATIVE FEEDBACK until you do send the proper package
( the medium can be a couple small items etc as long as it adds up to a medium and that is what you claimed for we know things happen and some have to be changed but must be OK by the person claimed and on their list or wished in their Pinterest/wist )

Feedback will be given as soon as you have sent - received -posted pics but will be up to 2 weeks after the swap closed if you do not post pics and this will be noted and you might not get allowed back in the next round if you cant do this! Please take pics before you ship! This is a rule not an option!!!

    
Previous Swap Rounds:
If you are confused in any way by how this works, please look at some previous rounds:

Photos are a requirement for this swap!

BABALINA58 - Organizer, in charge of your claims, Thread update and approval feedback.
LINDYV321 -Co org as over 25 swappers we must have she will keep an eye on the gallery

Hi everyone, 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 of World of Warcraft.  I love to read, cook, bake, can and craft.  I’m unfortunately not a knitter or crocheter, but I hope to be one someday!

I will get this started, since I'm super excited to start crafting. Hopefully I calculated the time difference correctly and I'm not early. I've always been bad at that.

I claim Jillybeans for bookmarks.

1/0/0


ABOUT ME:
I am a 24 year old, and I live near St. Louis, MO. I have a 1 year old daughter, and a boyfriend of 3 years. I am a stay at home mother and I go to school full time. I am very crafty and don't stick to a particular method, so it's hard to pinpoint my expertise. I am open to different styles and am not a very picky person.

To get an idea of my style or things I like for anything you want to make in a theme, here is my pinterest account: http://www.pinterest.com/breegy

Likes:
Floral everything
Lace everything
Antiqued anything
I like bold, dark, jewel, and fall tones. I can never get enough of brown!
All metals
Owl anything!
Lavender and Coffee scents
Dangly earrings
Everything nerdy
Turquoise (the mineral, not particularly the color)
Nature inspired things
ALIEN anything and everything
Anything wearable and leather (I'm a leather jacket and combat boots kinda girl)
Sucker for anything Browncoat
Dislikes:
Pinks, reds, and purples.
Useless, cluttering stuff.
I'm extremely picky about my necklaces, so I prefer not to be given any.
Fruit scents
Anything super girly (unless it's floral or lace)

I have no allergies that I know of, and hopefully I don't find out about them from your swaps!



If the claim is something having to do with my daughter, anything and everything OWL and FLORAL is perfect. I'm not a fan of [bright] pink, purple, butterflys, dragonflies, or anything of those likes!
Things I want particularly in the theme of Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, Big Bang Theory, or Doctor Who are in italics, and things on my super-duper want list are in bold.


ANYTHING FROM MY "MAKE FOR ME" BOARD ON PINTEREST-
http://pinterest.com/breegy/make-for-me/

SEWING/KNITTING/CROCHETING-
1. Quilted Purse
2. A Jedi robe!
3. Throw Pillows with any combination of green, red, yellow, and brown. (I know, terrible color combo. That was obviously my boyfriend's doing)
4. Yo Gabba Gabba Puppets for my Daughter!
5. A Jayne Cobb hat from the TV show Firefly: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=19076.20
6. This knitted or crocheted top: http://pinterest.com/pin/253468285248474226/
7. Any cute baby girl clothes for 24 months or older!
8. These fabric house boots (size 8; Army Green, or Black are okay as well; No embellishment): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=333544.0
9. Felt Badges
10. TM Patches
11. Crochet/knitting/yarn bag or box (a little needle organizer would be great as well!)

I claim Eiseldora for notecards &  stencils. This is my first claim. 1/0/0

ABOUT ME

Hello, my name's Wendy and I live in Sydney, Australia.

I am currently studying design, with a view to working in sustainable interior styling or product design (I would love to design craft products!).

I have dabbled in many crafts over the years, but my current obsession is paper crafts/altered art. I LOVE Tim Holtz’s work and was privileged to meet him recently (and receive a tag he made in a demo).

My personal style is arty. I like bold, chunky jewellery made out of natural materials such as metal, agate, glass, wood. I mainly wear black, chocolate brown or grey, accented with red, purple, or magenta
 
My decorating style is quite eclectic - I like a mix of vintage and modern. But I will be moving in a few months, so don’t really want anything until I find out where I will be living.

I like pinky reds, purples, beiges & browns and earthy greens. I dislike blue, mint and dark green, peach, yellow, orange, lavender, as well as cutesy, country, checks, spots, stripes, skulls. My favourite patterns are modern leaf prints or printed damask.

I love natural fibers and fabrics and would prefer not to receive anything in polyester, acrylic or other synthetics.

I can't stand the smell of perfume or cigarette smoke.

I would LOVE a supplies package as I need quite a lot of materials for my design course & to fuel my Tim Holtz addiction.

Items with a * are a big wish.

- large crocheted cotton earrings in white, pink, brown or purple
- crocheted cotton jug cover in white with clear or pale green glass beads

Jewelry
I like my jewellery very chunky and natural looking. I wear my necklaces very long (almost to the navel). I like silver or gunmetal tones –gold or copper don’t suit me
- chunky rose quartz or amethyst long necklace, bracelet or earrings (please use silver findings as I am allergic to nickel)
- agate/geode slice/druzy  earrings in purple, brown or gray (please use silver findings as I am allergic to nickel)

I claim Velvet Rose for a pencil roll

this is my first claim
1/0/0

I'm a 26 year old living in London, UK. I work in west end theatre and am studying part time for a physics / maths degree. I'm a massive nerd, I love maths & science humour.
I'm a big bookworm too, i love fantasy / sci-fi type stuff, non-fiction and humour but will read anything put in front of me for long enough.
I am currently completely obsessed with Firefly, in addition to my ongoing crush on the weasley family.
I need tea like most people need oxygen.
My other half is a motion graphic designer. He thinks he's a pirate rock-star, and dresses like Captain Jack crossed with Russell Brand. I think he's the most awesome person ever.

I wear mostly black & grey with highlights of red - i always wear red shoes. My dress sense is... low maintenance, I guess would be a nice way to put it! Day-to day I'm very casual, with a grungy/rock edge. But I love to dress up when i go out, in stupid-high shoes and a kinda rockabilly type look.
My decor taste is shabby chic, nothing ever matches, and I like to find new uses for old things - using something in a different or interesting way. mostly... background grey and neutrals, with splashes of really bright colour.
Nothing to mumsy or fussy, please - and nothing to pink and sparkly either!
I have a cat, and no allergies except bananas.

my blog is very badly designed but i like writing it - it tells you a lot about me http://noodlesnoggin.blogspot.co.uk/
I do handsewing and embroidery, mostly, but I'll try my hand at most things. I knit very badly, and I like up-cycling stuff to find new uses or make boring things prettier. I am particularly experienced in cross-stitch, sock-toy crafting and making obscure Harry Potter puns.

I'm really looking forward to getting involved in this swap Smiley

MY WISHES

Crafted stuff (**stared are the ones i super want Smiley )

1) A zombie gnome http://media-cache-ec7.pinterest.com/upload/15340454951174556_gEdbpmZz_f.jpg
2) ** A grumpy bear care bears hoodie http://media-cache-ec3.pinterest.com/upload/11188699044195820_H1PMQ1gV_f.jpg (but for a grown up size child...) don't have to make the hoodie, just modify one with matching fabric ears and a stomach patch. UK size 14-16
3) a ribbon wrangler
4) nerd shirt cushion cover with pocket, maybe something along these lines http://media-cache-ec6.pinterest.com/upload/82753711872780603_qOPt1vxf_f.jpg
5) an emission spectra scarf http://sternlab.org/2010/02/emission-spectra-  with silver elemental spectrum
6) cat themed TM patches
7) wolf patronus embroidery / artwork
8 ) crochet hook  / knitting needle roll - I especially like the maurader's map ones like this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350747.0
9) ** a Goldie the gargoyle! from Neil Gaimen's Neverwhere. can be sculpted (ideally) or knitted what whatever - little in size, sort of sit in the palm of my hand size! http://media-cache-ec3.pinterest.com/upload/82753711872780523_Z1O1qKds_f.jpg
10) dinosaur hoodie http://media-cache-ec4.pinterest.com/upload/177329304047543308_Lu2LU530_b.jpg again can just be a purchased hoodie up-cycled
11) box shaped make-up bag - this type shape http://media-cache-ec0.pinterest.com/upload/82753711872942673_Rf8EAHzo_f.jpg
12) bookmarks - something simple to make. I'm providing handmade bookmarks to go in the goodie bags at an event I'm attending in September, I'll need a couple of hundred in total so if you wanna  contribute a few that would be very welcome!
13) carbon atom ring http://media-cache-ec9.pinterest.com/upload/82753711872549202_HUKnchD9_b.jpg
14) snitch/watch http://www.etsy.com/listing/95155305/harry-potter-golden-snitch-pocket-watch but not on a chain Smiley

16) Bookcrossing lables to go on the last page of bookcrossing books - these are ususally printed stickers, about 2.5 cm tall by about 6/7 cm long (I'm guessing by eye on the measurements) with a bit of text, the bookcrossing webaddress and a space to fill in the BCID by hand. I'll take some pictures when I get home to show an example
17) mug hug with a skull on it. black & red. (for my boyf)
18) bath bubbles or other bath stuff with manly scents, for my rock n roll boyf who frequently texts me from inside a hot bowl of bubbles

20) Letter writing paper - I am pen friends with my great aunt & uncle, who live in Canada (Great as in my grandma's sister, as well as in really cool people) so I would love some decorated paper to write to them on
21) a pencil case - big enough to get a scientific calculator (along with a few pens) inside
22) a mug rug... maybe with a caffeine molecule symbol? Or whatever, really Smiley
23) a knitted (or other plushie) little Pigwidgeon Cheesy I love pig!

feel free to raid my pinterest http://pinterest.com/noodlesnotions/ and ask if there is something there you'd like to make

Supplies
1) porcelain paint pens in tans and browns
2) buttons. all and any Cheesy

At the minute I am particularly looking for frames to fit these picture sizes (6'' x 5'') (7'' x 10'' something quite 60s style for this one) (12'' square). second hand is fine, don't need to have glass in them - just a frame and back. I'm really into interesting detail and colours when it comes to frames.
4) any fabric with geeky / maths / science type prints
5) waterproof ink for stamping fabrics - any colours, but especially black, grey, brown
6) seed beads in silver or pearl
7) small, in fact tiny, silver or pearl buttons - the type with holes (not shanks). matching or not is fine

17) Double stuff Oreos. Technically a craft supply since they will fuel my ability to craft  Cool I became addicted when i worked in the States, but we can only get the normal ones here and the double stuff are vastly superior

I'll claim noodle-bug for an assortment of bookmarks!

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

  • 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.

 -- 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.

 -- 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.

 -- 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.

 -- 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!

  -- 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!

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

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

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

 -- 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 Metal alphabet stamps A-Z letters upper and/or lowercase. I have a hammer and anvil but need the stamps!

 -- 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 claim phoenixfiredesigns for a surprise from her pinterest. ^_^

1/0/1


ABOUT ME:
I am 24 years old, and I live near St. Louis, MO. I have a 1 year old daughter, and a boyfriend of 3 years. I am a stay at home mother and I go to school full time for Graphic Design. I am very crafty and don't stick to a particular method, so it's hard to pinpoint my expertise. I just started crocheting and am on my practice items right now. I am getting good though (if only I could get the tension right -_-)! I am also currently obsessed with Joss Whedon and his brilliance.

To get an idea of my style or things I like for anything you want to make, here is my pinterest account: http://www.pinterest.com/breegy

Likes:
Floral everything
Lace everything
Antiqued anything
I like bold, dark, jewel, and fall tones. I can never get enough of brown!
I'm also into that shabby chic style.

Owl anything!
Lavender, Hippy, and Coffee scents
Dangly earrings
Everything nerdy
Turquoise (the mineral, not particularly the color)
Nature inspired things
Anything wearable and leather (I'm a leather jacket and combat boots kinda girl)
Sucker for anything Browncoat

Dislikes:
Pinks, reds, and purples.
Useless, cluttering stuff.
I'm extremely picky about my necklaces, so I prefer not to be given any.
Fruit scents and mint scents
Anything super girly (unless it's floral or lace)

I have no allergies that I know of, and hopefully I don't find out about them from your swaps!
