I will claim jo_mama for a crocheted purse!  1/0/0

I'm Tandra from NW Pennsylvania.  I am a freelance writer & tutor, a crocheter for the last 14 years, and "Mommy" to an old cat, a psychotically-pubescent iguana, and a happy-go-lucky Lab mix.  My husband and I are in the process of getting our own place and hoping to have a human baby.  I love all things crafty and DIY -- if I'm not crocheting knit and sew a little, scrapbook, and garden in warm weather.

I have a big Pinterest and anything on it is fair game.  If you have any questions about my likes or dislikes, just message me!

I claim Mrs Awesome Pants for some cloth napkins.

This is my first claim. 2/1/0

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!!

Hmm, I come back here to claim and Mini is up again, so I will claim Mini for the second time this month. This time for potholders

Claim 2, 1 sent, 0 received.

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

For most things, I would prefer items inspired by my pinterest instead of exact duplicates.

I am a stay-at-home mom and a writer. 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.
