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.


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 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

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
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... me) don't have to make the hoodie, just modify one with fabric ears and a stomach patch. UK size 14-16 (can provide measurements)
3) a ribbon wrangler
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 - 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!
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
15) harry potter 'weasley is our king' badge with altered burger king logo http://media-cache-ec3.pinterest.com/upload/82753711872548784_Ol5O0ZDq_f.jpg
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
19) a jayne cobb hat, because I'm shockingly original like that
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 big pencil case - big enough to get a scientific calculator (along with a few pens, highlighters & post-its) inside
22) a mug rug... maybe with a caffeine molecule symbol? Or whatever, really  Smiley
23) a knitted/crochet (or other plushie) little Pigwidgeon (Ron's small, messy owl from the HP books)  Grin I love pig!
24) 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
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

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
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.
