I claim VelvetRose for crochet earrings on her Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/pin/283656476500805534/
and probably something else I havent decided, since that's not really a medium item.

1/0/2


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.

For my Pinterest, go here: http://pinterest.com/breegy/

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

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!
