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.

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.

I'll claim Breegy for a fork bracelet and probably something else to be determined.

Claim #2 this round / 2 outstanding / 0 sent / 0 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

  • 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.

I claim Eiseldora for a pincushion thread catcher for sewing machine and some sewing supplies (fabric, thread, etc.)


1st claim 0 sent 0 recieved


Hello from the state of Texas! My name is Robin . I enjoy cross-stitch, embroidery, sewing, painting and cutting wood. I love to shop the antique stores and flea market could spend all day in a craft store.  I dabble in it all and only wished my friends did too. I have 2 Schnauzers Bandit (male) and Sugar (female). And several fish tanks full of Discus and Angelfish. I love the outdoors and spend a lot of time at the lake in the summer. I also collect vintage items such as old board games, 50’s kitchen items in aqua/pale yellow, resin napkin holders from the 60’s. Some of my likes are cupcakes, dragonflies, frogs, owls.
An all supply package is always welcome!

I do not like the color grass green, other shades such as sage, lime, yellow green are ok

  •  Bamboo knitting needles Cheesy would love Size 6 (I have DPN and Cabled Size 5 and 7, but as I'm making many washcloths recently patterns call for size 6
  •  Yarn Bamboo Spa (NaturallyCaron.com Spa, Patons Silk Bamboo) and
  •  Yarn Solid colors Any rainbow color is good. Pinks, Purples, Burgendy, and Reds never stay in my stash long. I can never find blues at the store.
  •  Handspun yarn
  •  Yarn Varigated with natural color themes like blues, beige-brown, pinks/purples and greens to yellow.

  •  Mason Jars
  •  Purple Socks to make Sock Monkey for Niece.

I tag Lindyv321 for Ninni Monsters

2/0/0

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 too mumsy or fussy, please - and nothing too pink and sparkly either!
I have a cat, and no allergies except bananas.
Essentially anything with a retro / rockabilly type style will make me happy.

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

MY WISHES

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

1) A zombie gnome http://media-cache-ec7.pinterest.com/upload/15340454951174556_gEdbpmZz_f.jpg

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

25) hoopla or wall art based on my pinterest board http://pinterest.com/noodlesnotions/hoopla/ I know the board is called hoopla, but you don't have to make me hoops - you don't have to embroider, either, if you prefer to paint of papercraft or whatever instead

Supplies
1) porcelain paint pens in tans and browns
2) buttons. all and any  Cheesy
3) frames - i love unusual frames to put my embroideries in. 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 sets or just random odd ones is fine
8 ) matte mod podge
9) any old and unreadable copies or any of HP (especially if you have the American version with chapter header pictures - our uk copies don't have the pics... and especially especially book 7 deathly hallows) or His Dark Materials or kushiel's legacy books, or Gone with the wind, or Alice in wonderland. Or just loose pages from them
10) glow in the dark embroidery thread
11) sticks to put cake-pops on
12) Indian Rupee coins or notes
13) tweed / wool type fabrics
14) embroidery thread - perle or anything with an interesting texture. any colours
15) any Gorjuss cross stitch patterns (except 'new heights') - used / photocopied is fine as long as they are readable
16) corduroy fabric - any colour, and thickness of cord
17) any letter stamps - any font / any size (for stamping on fabric)

I claim noodle-bug for a box of supplies (buttons, fabric with geeky/maths /science type prints, sticks to put cake-pops on and corduroy fabric)

1/0/0

I'm a 27 year old recently-married woman from Berkshire, UK. I work in educational administration and like to cook, craft and kayak in my spare time. Things I love: tiny florals, nature patterns and designs featuring animals (in a realistic style rather than cute/cartoony) especially sea lions, octopi, birds and black cats. Favourite colours are deep grey, teal, black and neutrals. I'm allergic to nickel (metal in some jewellery findings) and not keen on pink, yellow, red, orange, glitter and butterflies.

I am claiming Mrs Kay for embroidery of Beatrix Potter's Jeremy Fisher
(1,0,0)

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

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. If you asked me whether I prefer something useful over something decorative, I would tell you I would prefer useful, but when I went through and made things that I especially want purple, I couldn't keep from making some items with no use at all purple. Yep, I confuse myself all the time.

I claim Averia for a supplies package. This is my second claim. 2/1/0

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
 
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.

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.

I claim Breegy for a hoop pincuchion off her pinterest.

Im not on the list but i do have approval from our moderator!!  Smiley

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

Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 40 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 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 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)

Claiming lindyv321 for -Tree of Life Pendant with “November” stones. Easy!  Grin

Claim #3 overall / 3 outstanding / 0 in transit / 0 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

  • 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 Eiseldora for some sugar scrub, an eye pillow, and maybe some supplies.


1st claim, 0 sent, 0 received



hi. i am nicole. my home is in Troy, NY  but right now i am living in middle-of-no-where OH running a small BBQ with my boyfriend.  i love all things quirky, odd, kitschy, or slightly inappropriate. i love vintage clothes and collectibles, right now my favorite era is late 50s/early 60s.  i am 32yrs old and i have the sense of humor of a 12yr old boy, and i like it that way
 
i used to have crafting a.d.d.. now i mostly stick to embroidery and x-stitch, so i am not really interested in receiving any of that stuff since i can make it myself. i really like bright/bold colors, and HATE pastels or anything too girly like butterflies and hearts (but i do like day of the dead style sacred hearts).  i love vintage prints and styles. i am very turned off by synthetic scents, but i love natural ones and essential oils (EXCEPT patchouli,  ick!). i am really into all things eco-friendly and love to re-use/recycle, so pre-loved or gently used stuff is cool with me!
Random things i love- snails, beavers, sloths, alpacas, small vintage campers, bees, honey, tea, cheese, wine.

i have a pretty detailed profile and a lengthy wist so please check them out for plenty of ideas or to get an idea of my style!

I am claiming skaborsk for an etsy surprise
(2,0,0)

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

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. If you asked me whether I prefer something useful over something decorative, I would tell you I would prefer useful, but when I went through and made things that I especially want purple, I couldn't keep from making some items with no use at all purple. Yep, I confuse myself all the time.

Claiming Eiseldora for supplies - not exactly sure what yet.  The Pinterest was down so I still need to give it a good looking over!

1/0/0

I'm Marilyn, living in New Hampshire in an old house (1771) in the country with my two teen-aged sons and two cats.

I enjoy vintage, primitive, folk art, organic (as in nature/natural), and whimsical.  I like tramp art, mechanical gadgets, natural history; my favorite colors are earth-, sea-, or general nature-tones.  I love designs that include birds, animals, insects, trees, rocks, steam trains and retro-50s rocket ships.  I love polymer clay things – especially the new metallic type I’ve seen used for steampunk charms.

Don’t care for the smell of smoke.  I can't wear wool in contact with my skin and can't eat nuts or apples, but otherwise OK.

    * Crafts

      1.  Anything from or inspired by my wist http://www.wists.com/muddy21/all/?tag2=&offset=0&searchme=  or my pinterest http://pinterest.com/mlbott/
      2.  Crochet-covered mason jar for my son's girlfriend - deep bright purples and blues, perhaps?
      3.  Altered art/mixed media/fabric journal cover to fit any standard size spiral-bound notebook
      4.  Good quality sewing pins with polymer clay heads (fruits, vegetables, flowers, leaves, sun/moon/stars, sweets, cupcakes...looking for add-ons to go with themed pincushions)
      5.  Teesha Moore style patches for notebook cover or wall hanging
      6.  Embroidery hoopla wall art (ideas can be found on my wist and my pinterest), but generally I love trees, birds, doorways, gardens, or your creative design
      7.  Polymer clay or other charms or pendants inspired by my interests above or my wist or pinterest
      8.  A necklace &/or bracelet holder made of found objects - one idea is here http://www.wists.com/muddy21/54c0ebe3e7ab1e071bf05a4a5721b099
      9.  Miniatures – fairy houses, gnome houses, Wind in the Willows or Beatrix Potter inspired items, curio cabinets, altered Altoid-tin shrines – ideas here http://www.wists.com/muddy21/01b1630d7418f69589fc2971bfe95d8e or here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=36813.0
     10.  Fabric bowl or basket - see color combos above - coiled, felted, any way is fine
     11.  Loaded bead/charm bracelets or just the start of one (I can always add to it over time) – there are ones I like here http://www.etsy.com/listing/60538405/burgundy-wine-and-rich-purple-with-deep?ref=v1_other_1   but different is good, too
      12.  Earrings with beads or charms or crochet for pierced ears, either wires or posts OK, just not too big or too long or too heavy
      13.  Small-ish pincushion or biscornu to travel around the house with me http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368298.msg4328718#msg4328718   I love pincushions!
      14.  Moon jar(s)
      15.  Outdoor garden art or windchimes
      16.  Un-paper towels either with or without snaps
      17.  Rinchies (round inchies) to go into bottle caps or resin filled bottle caps with images inside - for little giveaways
      18.  Nature themed inchies or ATCs
      19.  Wrist cuff - embroidery &/or seed beads, not too wide, my wrist is only 7"
      20.  Nature shrine
    
    * Supplies

      1.  Cotton fat quarters or even smaller pieces with small textural patterns, neutral tone on tones, batiks or hand-dyed fabrics that might be useful for making landscape/art quilts or Teesha Moore patches, or in stripes, polka dots, retro style
      2.  Glow in the dark embroidery floss
      3.  Thread Heaven – silicone treatment to use with metallic floss (available on line or at some hobby stores in the notions section - not at mine, though)
      4.  Beading pliers
      5.  Clear storage boxes or tins with clear lids for organizing craft supplies along these lines  http://www.wists.com/muddy21/6233e788a4e9d70cd45a2db9884d0cd2
      6.  Fabric bins or baskets to help with my current craft room organizing efforts
      7.  Buttons of various colors, sizes, shapes
      8.  Nice felt in your mix of colors (I have the common bright colors but would love some of the more earth- or nature-toned colors
      9.  "How to Needle-Felt" starter kit or project ideas (I bought a couple of wool sweaters recently at Goodwill but not sure what to do now!)
     10.  Miniature animals, gnomes, fairies, etc, polymer clay or otherwise for little diorama-type scenes
     11.  Accessories, embellishments, or supplies appropriate for making little fairy houses
     12.  Resin casting starter kit
     13.  Small metal charms for adding to fabric art
     14.  Small glass beads (seed beads) for fabric art
     15.  Anything else you think I might like   Wink
  
    * Extras
           -Postcards or photos of your local places or historical markers


      Thanks for claiming me!

I claim muddy21 for some hoopla art from her pinterest

This is claim 3 - 1 sent / 1 received


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, some steampunk influences.... I tend to vary my 'dressed up' style alot, anything from the switchblade sisters to industrial revolution lady.

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 too mumsy or fussy, please - and nothing too pink and sparkly either!
I have a cat, and no allergies except bananas.
Essentially anything with a retro / rockabilly type style will make me happy.

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

MY WISHES

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

1) A zombie gnome http://media-cache-ec7.pinterest.com/upload/15340454951174556_gEdbpmZz_f.jpg
2) ** A modified blue hoodie with grumpy bear ears and tummy patch http://media-cache-ec3.pinterest.com/upload/11188699044195820_H1PMQ1gV_f.jpg (grown up size - for me. Can give sizes)
3) a ribbon wrangler
4) an emission spectra scarf http://sternlab.org/2010/02/emission-spectra -  with silver elemental spectrum
5) cat themed TM patches
6 ) 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
7) ** 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
Cool box shaped make-up bag - this type of shape http://media-cache-ec0.pinterest.com/upload/82753711872942673_Rf8EAHzo_f.jpg
9) bookmarks - any style. 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!
10) carbon atom ring http://media-cache-ec9.pinterest.com/upload/82753711872549202_HUKnchD9_b.jpg
11) snitch/watch http://www.etsy.com/listing/95155305/harry-potter-golden-snitch-pocket-watch but not on a chain  Smiley
12) harry potter 'weasley is our king' badge with altered burger king logo http://media-cache-ec3.pinterest.com/upload/82753711872548784_Ol5O0ZDq_f.jpg
13) mug hug with a skull on it. black & red. (for my boyf)
14) 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
15) a jayne cobb hat, because I'm shockingly original like that
16) 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
17) ** a big pencil case - big enough to get a scientific calculator (along with a few pens, highlighters & post-its) inside
18) ** A coin purse, big enough to fit a few coins and 2 credit card sized cards (to keep in my gym bag with change for the lockers and my membership card)
19) a knitted/crochet (or other plushie) little Pigwidgeon (Ron's small, messy owl from the HP books)  Grin I love pig!
20) melted crayon art with either two people kissing in the rain and a broken umbrella throw aside, or a man storming off in the rain having just thrown a broken umbrella on the floor. My boy has a history of broken umbrella rage
21) hoopla or wall art based on my pinterest board http://pinterest.com/noodlesnotions/hoopla/ I know the board is called hoopla, but you don't have to make me hoops - you don't have to embroider, either, if you prefer to paint or papercraft or whatever instead

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) frames - i love unusual frames to put my embroideries in. 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.
3) any fabric with geeky / maths / science type prints
4) waterproof ink for stamping fabrics - any colours, but especially black, grey, brown.
5) seed beads in silver or pearl
6) small, in fact tiny, silver or pearl buttons - the type with holes (not shanks). matching sets or just random odd ones is fine
7 ) matte mod podge
Cool any old and unreadable copies of any of HP (especially if you have the American version with chapter header pictures - our uk copies don't have the pics... and especially especially book 7 deathly hallows) or His Dark Materials or kushiel's legacy books, or Gone with the wind, or Alice in wonderland. Or just loose pages from them
9) glow in the dark embroidery thread
11) Indian Rupee coins or notes
12) tweed / wool type fabrics
13) embroidery thread - perle or anything with an interesting texture. any colours
14) any Gorjuss cross stitch patterns (except 'new heights') - used / photocopied is fine as long as they are readable
15) corduroy fabric - any colour, and thickness of cord
16) any letter stamps - any font / any size (for stamping on fabric)
17) a clock mechanism to make myself a hoopla clock with

I claim eisadora for a dress for her niece

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

Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 40 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 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 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
Simplicity~~

Fabric Mystery Bundle from Fabricmart.com  http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com/xcart/804051-10-yard-Mystery-Fabric-Bundle-Assortment.html  Or the mystery box they have for sale (received but more are always welcome!!  I love these!!!!  Thanks Averia!!)

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

Purse supplies of all sorts (handles, magnetic snaps, rings ect).  Silver Victorian clasps would be great too (can be found at Hancocks).  I desperately need some magnetic snaps!!

Scrapbooking items  (trims, paper, stickers anything!!).  Im also looking for some things like brads, ribbons, fancy paper, scissors.  Im also looking for corner punchers, rulers for making fancy torn edges and hole punchers (I have a heart one).  Also plain colored or white blank greeting type cards would be wonderful!!

Emphemra

Costume jewelry or broken pieces that can be recycled into new jewelry

I really really need some cub/boy scout related scrapbooking items such as paper, stickers ect!!!!

Im also looking for a decorated (painted/decoupaged/stained ect) box for my scrapbooking paper or larger 12X12.  Would prefer an old vintage look.

Stamps and ink pads

Beading supplies like wire 18 gauge or higher, beads, spacers.  Im also needing jewlery making supplies too.  I would love some Swarovski jewelry supplies!!  Also ANY bead findings from Blue Moon Beads of their Lost and Found and/or Manor House (or any that features Victorian/Edwardian pieces) collection would be wonderful.  Also looking for a roll of tiger tail for beading and jewelry projects!!

My husband collects law enforcement patches.  I would love to get a bunch for him for him.  If you live near a prison, jail or other LE facility perhaps they would let you have one???  He gets his this way by asking and they are usually happy to give him one.  My husband loves Asian things as well as LE related (he is a correctional officer) and anything relating to the park service (Smokey the Bear gets double marks lol!!). 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)

Also I would love to be able to get him a hooded jacket with a nin symbol on it!! Stenciled or embroidered (Will send link to a pic if needed).  Does not need to be a crafted hoodie.  Purchased hoodie is perfectly fine!!

Lego's for my two boys would be wonderful.  They are obsessed!!

Im also looking for a Yellow Freight cap.  Hubby would love one, and has said so for as long as we have been together.  Not sure why but figured I would look for him!!
