IMPORTANT:  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 86

~~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.  
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!!!

Last claim of round 87 Is......AVERIA
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.

I claim Averia for something knitty, probably a string bag or potholders.

0/0/0 (this round; one outstanding from the last round)



Hi! I am 22, currently working as a nanny and living with my boyfriend of nearly four years. My style is pretty haphazard--I never coordinate anything, so my decorating style is whatever I like, all cobbled together. I love bold prints and art deco and fun colors, but I'm not a fan of pink or orange. I love dark colors, like maroon and navy. I knit like a fiend (almost constantly) and also crochet, sew, spin, and dabble in paper craft and jewelry. No pets and no allergies, but my boyfriend is allergic to all nuts. PM with any questions!

Here are some themes/fandoms that can be used for wall art/hoopla: Stargate Atlantis, SG1. Sherlock (BBC), Star Wars (including Extended Universe; I LOVE Rogue Squadron), Whedonverse, Doctor Who, biology, grammar, knitting, embroidery, Futurama, Questionable Content, Girls with Slingshots, swear words, rick rolling, Portal, science fiction (in general), Mean Girls (I quote this movie ALL THE TIME), LGBT and women's rights, Disney movies, booze, steampunk, Geek and Sundry

** = really want

Crafts:

-  Knitting stitch markers. I love the little polyclay kind, but beads are also sweet.
** HOOPLA.
-   Wall art of almost any kind.
**  A corset-backed garter belt
** a crinoline/petticoat (my hips are like 36ish)
- If you were keen on decorating or making geeky underclothes, that'd be sweet. PM for sizes.
- Ceramic mugs/bowls/dishes. Pottery is one craft I know I'll probably not get the chance to do, so I love looking at other people's.
-   Handspun yarn
-   Shawl pins/brooches.
-   Cloth Napkins (I have a couple and I'd like to have a lot. Cotton or polyester is fine
-  decorated Corkboard and/or whiteboard
- This gorgeousness: http://pinterest.com/pin/253186810272313361/
-  An insertable pocket for totebags: http://pinterest.com/pin/253186810272035582/
- A hip pouch like this: http://pinterest.com/pin/253186810271313696/
- Some sort of garter-like thing that can go around my leg that I can put a flask in. Flask optional, obvs.
- A flask. There's a TOTALLY SWEET one on my pinterest that's the Face of Boe.
-  Art like this: http://pinterest.com/pin/253186810271096540/
- Little TARDIS plushie to go with my 5 tenth Doctor
- Drawstring or zippered project bags for knitting
Pretty much anything on or inspired by my pinterest (pinterest.com/brinnanza). I believe I've commented on everything I've gotten or made, so not those things. PM if you're not sure.


Supplies (All supplies packages are fine; I love thrifted)

**  Embroidery hoops
-   Spinning fiber (anything natural, any prep)
-   Large buttons, preferably in sets of at least four.
-   Thread (any color)
-  Tapestry needles. I am ALWAYS losing them.
-   Machine sewing needles (I go through them so quickly) regular, but also leather/denim.
**   Kool-Aid/dye for yarn/roving (especially need black)
-   Awesome fabric--abstract/geometric prints, swirls, Amy Butler-esque, or linen. I love linen. (Linen-look cotton is also great)
-  Aida cloth/linen/cross stitch fabric
-  A jelly roll. I'm thinking about starting quilting but I want to start easy.
-   Resin kit
-  Felt (acrylic or wool, I don't mind either) (all colors, but especially white)
-  Embroidery floss, especially metallic. Also, perle cotton.
-  Corset boning
-  Alligator clips
- Picture frames to fit a 8.5x11 in picture (need three total)


Extras

Knitting/crocheting books (but pm first)
Paper crafting/card making books
EASY (like, hella simple) quilting books/patterns. I'm considering taking it up.
Back issues of Interweave Knits, Knit1, Knit Simple or Vogue Knitting (or any other knit mags; please pm cause I do have some)
I'll never say no to chocolate or candies, especially gummies.
Cinnamon tea (like Bengal Spice or India Spice. Only herbal, I don't like actual tea)
I looooooove table top games

I claim babalina58 for some Hoopla since i saw some things i made on her Pinterest!

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 a sense of my style! 

* the stuff with an asterisk i would really love

I am claiming Skaborsk for cocktail glasses. 1st claim!

Hi!  My name is Shana and I am living in MI with my fluffy dog and two cats.  
I am kind of an all over the place crafter.  I tend to see things I like and then work backward as to how to create them myself.  I am a huge fan of deco style vintage items and forest animals (I LOVE anything fox or owl related but other forest critters are great too).  I am huge beer and wine geek and I love to cook! You wont offend me with cursing or nudity Im actually a big fan of both J  I tend to decorate with white and pops of bright colors, but wear more autumn color palettes.  
I have a large pinterest that is always fair game (except the board entitled things Ive actually done)
http://pinterest.com/sminish/
Needless to say, not allergic to animals, and to quell anyones fears, I am constantly sweeping vacuuming and lint rolling everything in my life (I love my pets, but seriously, next time, hairless!)
 
Crafts
- Artwork my bedroom walls are bare!  I love these ideas:
http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885808469210/
http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885808291483/
http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885806826178/
- A nice full apron I am a size 12 and love kitschy and retro prints
- A knitted cowl like this:  http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885806682819/ or a cabled scarf.  I can knit.  Only knit, nothing fancy yet, so all my scarfs are pretty plain.
- I could use a nice new winter knitted hat as well think mens size though I have a big head!
- Painted wooden Utensils like these I keep meaning to do this but havent and all my kitchen stuff is bright!:  http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885806957718/
- A ring display I love this idea, but anything that I can showcase my collection with would be awesome  
- A sewing machine cover I have been coveting one like this forever, but I am open to creativity! http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885806378197/
- Cute bright garland for my sewing room like this idea, but it can be any shape : http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885806378521/
- Origami cranes I am working on circling my bedroom with origami cranes.  Its a process!  If you wanted to fold me some cranes I would be forever grateful!  I have been using the 6inch squares.
- Bracelets I always have an armful of bracelets and am always looking for more.  I have noticed if they are too chunky though, they end up in a pile on my desk when I am working on the computer at work.
- A tote bag with a funny/awesome saying.  I love the good grammar is sexy one, but you could pretty much put anything on one of my pinterest boards on a tote bag and I would love it.
- I would love a cute something for my keys on my hall table.  I really like this : http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885806682819/
- Leg Warmers/Boot toppers.  I love the look, but as said above, my knitting skills arent there yet and Im not willing to sacrifice any sweaters just yet!  Greys or autumn type tones preferred
- Dog toys for Charlie he is a shepherd/collie mix, so good size, but he broke his jaw as a puppy so hes pretty gentle on his toys.  Anything that squeaks and he can throw around makes him hapy!
 - really pretty much anything inspired by my pinterest would excite me. I love creativity
 
 
Supplies
- Buttons any kind, I have some button art I want to do, so feel free to clean out your stash
- Felt I can always use more felt!  Any color is fine, it will find a use.
- Thread of any color.  
-  cardstock and scrapbooking paper.
- Squeakers ( for dog toys, I just swap them into old toys and sew them into cheap thrift store stuffed animals)
- Old Maps!  I love to craft with them
- Paints acrylic are great, but if you have any glass or porcelain paints those would be greatly appreciated as well.
- Silk cord for bracelet making.  Silver gold beads etc would also be great.
- Embroidery hoops
- Embroidery/cross stitch patterns
- unique fabric - kitsch is awesome, also anything houndstooth or chevron patterned
- If you have an unusual craft you do and love that you want to send me a starter kit for I would probably love to learn it!  

extras: green and white teas, chocolate, and treats for the pets would not be turned down!

I will claim Shana82 for a full apron. 

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!!

Im looking for unwanted rock concert tshirts!!  80s hairbands a plus!!!  rock hard rock or metal!! !

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 wouldnt 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

Cookbooks (and cooking magazines) are welcome!!  New and pre-loved!!

I love Charlie Chaplin, Silent Movies and am HUGE fan of Jimmy Stewart!!  Betty Boop too!!

EXTRAS

Candy from outside the US, Including but not limited to, (NZ~~Minties, Pineapple Lumps and Wittakers) Kit Kats!!  Violet Crumbles!! (Canadian Equivalent is welcomed too though the name escapes me)

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!!

Also im looking for bath tub grippers (the ones that prevent slipping) im looking for the kind that stick directly on the tub using tape/sticker.  I cant find any except for the mats

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!!

Pagan Related
Incense charcoal (these can be found in metaphysical or ethnic shops such as those specializing in incense)
Doves Blood ink (Its not really doves blood!!!  Thats just the name for inks used for writing positive chants!!!  There is Dragons Blood too and there are no dragons running around that I know of   Grin)
Parchment paper

Last but not least total complete surprises are welcome!!  If you are good at something and have something you love making.  Go right ahead.  I will say that my tastes are Victorian so if you can incorporate that even more perfect!!
