I'm claiming Underthemountain for supplies

Claim 1, 0 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.

i claim plaidpineapple for some artwork (how does one resist claiming when they see their name on a wish list?)

my first claim of 2013!

hi!  my name is jo.  i live with my husband, 2 kiddos, and 2 kitties outside of st. louis.  i'm a stay-at-home-mom who occasionally gets to make pretty things.  i paint (both brush and airbrush), draw, felt, work with yarn, polymer clay, and whatever i can get my hands on.  sewing is my downfall, and i am in utter awe of anyone with sewing skills.

we have no allergies, but excessive pet hair or smoke smell aren't appreciated.

i love many colors (mostly brighter tones), but not hunter green, country blue, or mauve.  i tend to mention colors in my pins.

i have a ridiculous pinterest - pinterest.com/josasser/ - and most of the boards that start with "i want . . . " are fair game.  there are too many pins to list them all here, so a pinterest surprise off any "i want" board would be great.  there are many people in my life that are thrilled to get craftster love

my wish list, big wishes in purple

I claim A2k for her hearts on a twig and a brooch from her pinterest.  This is my second claim 2/0/0.

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! My pinterest is full of art ideas I love
- 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!
- Throw pillows with forest animal themes (especially foxes and owls!) If you want to make only shams to save on shipping I have plenty of square thrown pillows to put them on 
- 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  -http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885806826351/
- 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.
I just found out before Christmas that I got into Grad School at Michigan State (yay!).  So anything green and white or college related is exciting me right now Smiley
- 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 happy!
Hooplas!  Or any framed embroidery or cross stitch.  I have a whole pinterest board I love them.  I would DIE if someone could make me this one for work: http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885808817527/
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 for my sewing machine.
-  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
- Google Eyes the glue on kind of any size I make art with them (and occasionally attach them to office supplies to make my desk job more entertaining)
- 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
- Wreath Forms
- poly clay and molds I really want to try this craft!
- Fabric Dye I like to redo old clothes
- 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 got a Keurig for Christmas that I am currently somewhat obsessed with, so if you do too and have spare pods laying around they would be appreciated Smiley
