I.E.  Sally ----> Suzy for a pink pony saddle due out Jan 1[/color]This must be in ALL of your messages to the org!!

for this swap a MED By SIZE it is 2 OR more craft hours ( this is not cooking time, drying time, etc.. waiting around for something to set up.......it is craft time for the average crafter)

1.   Please make your wish list made and saved in your computer BEFORE you make any claims ( min of 15 med craft items and 15 supply items)
2.   You must pm partner as soon as you claim to say hello and get addy there are too many that have not been doing so and waiting until send outs and becoming later for not doing this from now on this will be noted in feedback!

9.This is a high quality swap! Please check for loose threads, excess glue, make sure this is your BEST work we don't need anymore PM's about quality and would have to have to PM that there is an issue. You must send what you claim for ( we understand things happen like machines break etc..then you must still send on time and something else from the list that your partner wants!!

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 88

~~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 ORG 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!!!

    
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!


 
You must have your wish list saved in your computer before you make any claims as to not stall the thread Smiley

Our first claim this month is klg_jlg 
here is the link to the lase round so you can see her links ~http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=416208.0


Hey there guys! Im Kassie and its been a while since Ive really had a chance to do some swapping. I am a stay at home mom & blogger at www.goinggreenwitht hegrizls.com where I blog about my family and our journey to living a more natural green lifestyle. Im married to my love and we have a little girl, Natalia, that will be 2 on New Years Eve. Shes expecting her little sister in early April. Wink
My style is modern. I dont like things that look country or quaint. I prefer mostly clean lines and since most of what Ill be listing will be either Christmas gifts or birthday gifts for Talia, Id really appreciate it if you only claim something you know you can execute well. Sorry to be a stickler. =/

Most important gift ideas are in BOLD!

Natalia: Shes a lively and independent little toddler.

Id love a growth chart along these lines to keep track of her and the new little one since we generally rent homes we live in. http://pinterest.com/pin/43980533830523275/ OR http://pinterest.com/pin/78742693454286121/

Clothing for NataliaI believe these are all tutorials so it should be easy to replicate or follow along.

http://pinterest.com/pin/151222499957354000/

Baby carrier for doll in this style. It looks really similar to my boba and with a new sister on the way,Im hoping her having her own doll with carrier will help her feel like little mommy instead of beating the baby to death. Haha. http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286180812119/


Jake

Sturdy tri-fold mens walletpreferably not duct tape style.

Throw quilt like this for him. Hes 62 or so! http://pinterest.com/pin/151222499957764387/


Me

Crocheted Slippers. I'm about a US 6 1/2. Any greys, black teal, or even red would be super cute. Extra cushion on the bottom would be fantastic since we have hard wooden floors and I'm pregnant. I wouldn't even mind if you used wool and I could felt them. Wink http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286181142398/


Awesome mosaic serving trays http://pinterest.com/pin/151222499957769754/

Chevron Tree skirt. If you could make this a white and grey shimmer chevron, Id kill for it. Got any enemies? Id make them disappear to get my hands on  a tree skirt as described. Lol. http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286180966392/

Comfy sweatshirt  http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286181083479/ OR even this amazing one http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286180885282/

Really want some large art for our home. Almost every wall is bare.
when you love what you have...--same colors as pin http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286181087768/
lovely art http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286180941331/
spin cycle--keep same color theme as pin http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286180783242/
gorgeous flowers http://pinterest.com/pin/151222499957390524/


Family

My SIL would die for this awesome HP apron!! http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286180346505/

Ami Unicorns http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286180347691/  (Id love to end up with one for each little girl in the family. That being said, lets aim for 1 pink, 1 orange, 1 yellow, 1 lime green, 1 aqua, 1 red and 1 purple. With these, girls, they NEED to have different colors.) You could do the whole unicorn this color or white with mane and tails of these colors, however youd like as long as they are visibly different from each other in the eyes of little girls ranging from 1-6. Lol.

Id love to have 3 sets of these (Maybe 2  velcro on for handles, 1 for long skillet handle  and 1 that can snap or Velcro around a lid handle in each set please!)!! One that coordinates with red, white & black, one that is reds/gold/blues, and one that is brown/green/aqua http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286180341012/

Casserole Carrier in blue/green/brown for my SIL http://pinterest.com/pin/150307706283899105/


Friends

For our awesome friend Chant.. Could be made to fit cans or bottles. http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286180297729/

Stocking Stuffers

Soy or beeswax candles for the women in the family --We are fond of warmer smells such as coffee, chocolate, apple pie, cinnamon, vanilla..

Anyone make homemade extracts?? Id love some as stocking stuffers!! http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286180232261/

Supplies

Castor OilI know odd request but I could really use some to make facial cleansing oils.

Vinyl for using with the Cricut

Large unused art canvases, preferably the kind that is on the thin wood frame rather than the flat board style.

2 inch wide elastic- All colors work

Knit fabrics to make myself maxi skirts. 

This fabric http://pinterest.com/pin/151222499957459771/

Christmas themed cookie cutters.

MIL is wanting a bobbin winder for Christmas. Ive even take a used one in good condition. Wink

Super soft non acrylic or polyester yarnPlanning a lot of crochet gifts this year. Wink I like most all vivid colors, so no pastels please

Couple yards of oil cloth for making a tablecloth.

Fire engine red spray paint for painting a wood table.--Probably need 2 cans

Also need bright white spray paint for said wood table.

Will also need a sealing coat/clear paint for said table. Will need to be wipeable for cleaning up messes since it's a dining table. =)

It's a start anyway!

I claim miknessevie for the draw string bag project (and I'm sure I can find a few appropriate supplies).

This is my first claim. 1/0/0

I live in Switzerland, but I'm happy with quality over quantity and love mini things so hopefully that will keep the postage down. Having said that you all in the states have it easy with the postage. LOL.

Anyway, it's been a while since I've swapped since for the last 4 years we were living in a country where the postal system just didn't work. Eeeks. I'm quite happy to be back where the post works like a dream. Smiley And I'm looking forward to spend more time crafting. Swaps give me that excuse that I need to get to the sewing/crafting room.


CRAFTS: Things you can craft for me.
1.   Altoids can sewing kit/sewing needle case:
        http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=82733.msg791104;topicseen#msg791104
2.   The craftster mini duffel bag
        http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=7290.msg57201#msg57201
3.   A mini quilt, I would love that!
4.   Potholders, I dont have any more.
5.   Clothes for my Blythe
6.   Multi color scarf to go with my coat or a fleece hoodie scarf in bright colors
7.   Mittens/Gloves
8.   Hand made lye soap
9.   Mini things made by you, I put them in shadow boxes in my studio. Ive already gotten
        some lovely mini things from Craftster swaps like mini scarf & mittens set, mini socks,
        mini butterflies, mini knitting needles, etc. I really treasure these.
10.   Artwork made by you, new home has no art
11.   Xmas ornaments, white or clear/crystal/glass/icy
12.   Weekly calendar for next year, yes, the old fashion kind I can write in!
13.   Embroidery doodle pillow cases, white fabric with your embroidery doodles
14.   Cushion covers for my living room, 40x40 or 50x50
15.   Luggage tags
16.   Something inspired from my Wist or Flickr Favorites


SUPPLIES:
1.   Quilt patterns The ones that come in pouches like clothes patterns.
2.   Book binding supplies
3.   One sheet transfer paper for ceramics, DH wants a mug with our dog on it to take to
        work. I have the mug & the photo, waiting for the paper.
4.   Crafty books & magazines are always welcome but I know they can be heavy.
5.   Jewelry findings, spacer beads, not plastic or kids stuff, please.
6.   Jar of whimsies - Ok, I'll supply the actual glass jar... an envelope of whimsies will do.
7.   Zippers
8.   Mother of pearl buttons, Im collecting for a project.
9.   I will always take quilting fabric, not novelty or kids please.  
10.   Blank tea towels to embroider and print on
11.   Plastic animals, they will be painted so they can be beat up. Just not broken please
12.   Paper punches
13.   INK! Stamping ink, calligraphy ink, china ink
14.   Scrap booking paper, can be leftovers, but quality paper please, no kids patterns,    
        cartoons please
15.   Heat resistant fabric, if you cant make the potholders and you have some heat resistant
        fabric or can find some cheap/on sale, send it my way, Ill make my own. ☺
16.   Hand bag and purse making supplies/furnishings
17.   Oil paints. I just started painting in oil if you've given up, send them my way.

I dont wear earrings. My piercings closed up and Im too scared to have them done again. It was enough of a trauma the first time and please don't waste postage on candy. Smiley

I will gladly take used items. We all have hobbies we just won't get to or don't like anymore. Send them my way. But please make sure it's quality stuff that you would use yourself.

Thank you!!

I am claiming mini for something mini
(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.
