i have been asked to ask this on behalf of someone.

"If your partner is unsure of her ability to craft well, one of your top five items, would you be happy with a wist/Pinterest item and/or an item for a family member (if one was mentioned).


Absolutely! My top items are just some of the things I would like, I would be very happy with something else from my pinterest! Smiley

my answer is ... of course,  thats what my pinterest is for!

I would be very happy with anything Pinterest/wist inspired! I always feel under pressure when making a list of specific "wants" and never truely know what to write because I am pretty easy to please as long as it fits my general style LOL!


I love my recipient BTW! I already have the wheels a turnin' for ideas!

Yay for getting our recipients! Cheesy

To answer the posted question... I would love something pinterest inspired.

I really like my person. I was so nervous I would get someone who had wishes beyond my capabilities, so I was relieved to read her list and know I could make some of her wishes for her. Phew!

My daughter's 7th birthday is today, so I didn't have a lot of time to stalk yet.  But I will have plenty of time this next week to settle on plans and get started!  Cheesy

Absolutely. I just put down the stuff I could think of that I'd like, but like everyone else, feel free to get ideas off my Pinterest that aren't on the top 5. I know I've got several things on there that aren't anywhere on my questionnaire and I'm always adding stuff, so I'd honestly be happy with anything you think I'd like.

Yes for me too. My "wishlist" isn't a "make me only this" list. I'm happy with whatever my partner is inspired to make. Smiley

I thought this was already asked Cheesy

But for me the answer is a bit more tricky. I use Pinterest for work so it depends on which board its from. Boards listed as DIY, Home Decor, Personal or Swap are primarily the ones to get inspiration from. However there are a few boards with ideas of things to make my husband or niece that aren't really something I'd like made for me. In general I try to put things for partners listed under either the DIY - Things that Look Cool Board or under one of the specific Swap boards.

Oh and in general the more Pins on the board mean the less comfortable I am with that skill Cheesy For example I have over 200 pins under cleaning and sewing because I'm so horrible at it. Knitting, Stenciling, and Cooking have far fewer in comparison.

Ah good point, as I'm the same (quite a few boards are inspiration for specific design projects and have nothing to do with what I actually like). I think I mentioned that in my questionnaire, but pretty much ignore the boards that are "___ Inspiration," "___ Ideas" or something similar. Otherwise I don't really care if my partner goes outside those boards, as most hopefully at least give an idea of what I tend to like, and of course random crafts based on those sorts of likes would be just as loved as something directly off my list.

My answer is yes as well, to be honest - I can't even remember what I listed as my top 5:)

Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.

My answer is also a yes. I just went back and read my top 5 wishes and realized I might write 4 different ones today Cheesy so pinterest is probably the best way to get inspired for me:D

also, stalking is so much fun. It's just hard to remeber to not repin 500 of your recipients pins so she won't suspect anything Cheesy

for me, I am happy with something pinterest inspired, but I do have specific boards for craft swaps, a lot of the others are for inspiration...

I am SOOO happy with my partner, but then I did ask for this person as she is very cool and she is eminently craftable-for.
