I claim Kookaloo_Starr for "hearts to hang in Yarnia"

2/0/0

Hi!  I'm Teresa from Georgia and I'm so happy the OWS is back up and running!  Thanks Monica for many many fun months and thanks Averia and Breegy for keeping it going while Monica takes her well deserved break from organizing.

I live on a little patch of land north of Atlanta with my husband of 32 years, a pet cow, mini donkey, two pygmy goats, and three cats.  One of our grown daughters is living at home right now with her little black rescue dog.  He has taken over our home and our hearts in a huge way.  I've taught a young 5's class at a private preschool for 22 years and I love love love my job!

I have no true allergies but I do have an intense dislike for the smell of smoke (esp. cigar and pipe) and lavendar.

I have a seriously massive Pinterest.  Feel free to choose something off of one of these boards (please stick to these boards):

OWS/OPS Biggest Wishes
Crafty Wishes:  This & That
Crafty Wishes:  Fabric
Crafty Wishes:  Yarn
Bags, Purses, Totes, and Pouches (or something like that)
                                                                                 
I'd rather not be claimed for a surprise.  I like to know what's coming.

Crafts:

A Santa ornament of your design so that it's truly a one of a kind.  Any medium.. pretty, silly, whatever you come up with. 

A book safe.  The book needs to be on one of these subjects:  Georgia History (or just Georgia), soccer, Death, anatomy, classic rock, England, or it can be just some random book with a darkish cover that wouldn't stand out as "different" on a bookshelf of non-fiction books. Oh, a cookbook would work too.  I would really love one of these.  Babalina58 made my daughter one and my other daughter has always been a bit envious of it.

A Jack & the Beanstalk playset in any medium.  Nice and sturdy.

A Billy Goats Gruff playset in any medium.  Nice and sturdy.

A 3 Little Pigs playset in any medium.  Nice and sturdy.
 
Any nice and sturdy fairy tale playset (felt, wood, peg people, stuffies, fabric, ?)

A green doodle tree hoopla of your own design (penelopewaits made one similar to the one I have pinned and I have decided I need a green doodle tree hoopla wall in my downstairs bathroom.  Only shades of green with natural hoops please.  Any size hoop is fine.  I am fine with embellishments such as buttons, felt, etc.. as long as everything is in shades of green).

Largish note cards or stationary with a space and/or dinosaur theme.  I would rather have fewer elaborate cards than a quantity of simple ones.  I am pen pals with an 8 year old former student who moved away and I love to send over the top cards and stationary when I write to him.  Really, if you send me two really "WOW" cards with envelopes that would be a fantastic claim! 

Anything Georgia themed for my daughter's classroom.  She teaches 8th grade Ga. history.

A first aid roll in skull fabric (fabric should be black and white only, maybe a little grey would be okay)

A first aid roll in royal blue polka dots fabric or blue paisley or blue plaid

A first aid roll in giraffe print or fabric with giraffes

A plastic bag holder in a whimsical cat themed fabric. 

A journal made from an old Golden Book or from a child's school book of some sort (an old, worn out, "it's okay to destroy it" book of course).

Lightweight earrings in any of these themes:  pizza, goldfish crackers, space, dinosaurs, circus                                         
(shrinky dink would be perfect or any other very lightweight medium)

TM patches in any of these themes:

trees
mushrooms ("groovy" or fairytale or natural)
groundhogs
fairytale (Grimm, not Disney)
Just cute (polka dots, swirls, paisley, patchwork, colorful whatever...)
wildflowers (esp. thistle, Queen Anne's lace, daffodil, dandelion, clover)
cows (black please)
goats
donkeys
the 70's (whatever that means to you)
Christmas (traditional Christmas green, red, and white, not religious)

Supplies:

fairy tale themed fabric
fabric crayons
fabric markers
transfer pens
any fabric that brings the 60's or 70's to mind (old sheets, curtains, etc... are fine for this)
1/2 yard of any color felt from the bolt (not the sheets)
good metal snaps
cotton batting
interfacing (sew in or iron on)
your favorite sewing or needlework supply that you just couldn't live without
large or small round hot glue sticks
buttons... always
aida
painting supplies: brushes, sponges, ?
colored tape of any kind, washi, masking, duct....

Extras:
a photo of your county courthouse (hard copy with info on back)
your favorite vegetarian, vegan, WW, or gluten/dairy free recipes
Starburst Babies (if you're from a country that has them)
gluten free snacks and treats (must be certified gf)
old photos of people (for journal prompts and creative writing prompts)

Thanks for claiming me!

I claim gamemom42 for a cat fabric plastic bag holder and notecard(s)

1 claims  / 0 in transit / 0 received
Claimed gamemom42 for plastic bag holder and notecard (claimed)

My name is Christy and I live in Maryland.  I am a stay at home mommy of one really energetic and crazy hilarious daughter.  We also have a lil chihuahua "ChiChi" and a chunky bunny "Fuzz Ball". I am originally from Austin, Texas and even though I love the seasons in Maryland, I am hoping to move back to crazy hot Austin when my husband retires from the Navy.  

I picked up sewing about 2 years ago and have become a crafting freak.  I mostly sew for extended family, they keep me buried in wishlists, so I was thrilled to find Craftster where I can actually get cool stuff in return for the cool stuff I sew, woop woop.  

I don't have any allergies.

LIKES:

Organizing my Pinterest seems like a forever-project, but here's a link to some of my Craftster wishes, some of which are highlighted below:
http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/    (message me about anything on my other boards)

I am also currently in the Ongoing Holiday List 10 swap so you can always look up my latest wishlist there for more ideas

anything funny and/or inappropriate

Game of Thrones, Reno 911, Arrested Development, Labyrinth, East Bound and Down, Despicable Me, (I'll be adding to this, my mind is going blank at the moment)

Peacocks, owls, birds, houses, mushrooms, trees (I'm not a crazy collector of any of them, I just find myself checking out that kind of stuff often)

Grumpy Cat (who doesn't like Grumpy?!)

Steampunk (another thing Craftster got me addicted to!)  I really love the old timey, geary, rusty, machiney look of this

DISLIKES:
crochet stuff (sorry guys, I don't know why!), tie-dye, fluorescents, and I'm not a huge fan of batiks or grandmaw-ey florals.

Wristlet (in grays and/or dark versions of colors) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773367722/

Mug  rugs -- artsy, or themed (I like tea, husband likes coffee, and daughter likes milk/cookies).  
Christmas hot cocoa/cookie mug rugs would be awesome too (we set up a hot cocoa bar at Christmas when my sis's family comes to visit, so 4 mug rugs for the kids would be adorable--you don't have to do all 4 though!)

A pair of pillow covers (envelope,zipper,whatever) for my 17"x17" pillows
My LR colors are neutral blue and yellow with dark brown couch and accessories

I claim Watsonc7 for a cork plate holder and a surprise:)

This is my 1st claim this round.
1/0/0


About Me: I'm 33 (gulp) and I'm in NJ (double gulp). I have an incredible son named Jude who recently turned 2 and a crazy awesome husband I met at age 15. I'm currently running a small in home day care in our basement, baking up a storm, and piling up books in the stack I can never get to read. I love chocolate, the ocean and the beach, books, live music. I love turquoise and red, I collect recipe cards, old handkerchiefs, tea cups, ephemera, vintage scarves, cookbooks, old books, and vintage toys. There is a lot more info in my blog (see the link in my signature!) I love many styles, but nothing country or overly cutesy.

Wishes:
Crafted stuff:
For The Boy:
- Long sleeved tees/cardis/sweaters modified with elbow patches, cool phrases, in size 4T (I am ok with repurposed as long as the original shirt is in excellent condition). You can take a look at this board for some style ideas: http://pinterest.com/jojobean26/future-judems/

- Cool wall art inspired by my kiddo pins. I have soo many! http://pinterest.com/jojobean26/jude-s-new-room/

Not for the Boy:

I am thinking ravens and witches for my party theme this year and have tons of Halloween items pinned: http://pinterest.com/jojobean26/halloween/ I would love something to hang on a wall, door, or to sit on a small shelf. Think Johanna Parker, creepy but not too scary. http://www.johannaparkerdesign.com/

I claim Banga for a hooded towel for Jude

2nd claim this month, 0 shipped, 0 received

HI! I'm Summer from Texas. I am mom to 3 amazing boys 13, 8, & 8. We live on a ranch outside of Houston that has been in my DH's family for over 150 years. We raise and breed cattle and my sons show cattle all over the state of Texas.

Like most moms today I try to do everything! I work at a local church as the Director of Children's ministry, sit on the twins elementary school PTO, volunteer in scouts, and run around like a chicken with my head cut off. I enjoy scrapbooking, sewing, jewelry making, and various other hobbies. Hobby Lobby is my favorite store - I have memorized the layout, and frequent it often Smiley I am a diehard LSU fan - we bleed purple & gold in our home, and when we are home on a Saturday in the fall, you can be guaranteed that college football will be on the TV!

I claim texscrapper for a melted bottle spoon rest and some supply love.  This is my 1st claim this round.  (1,0,0)

Hi, all!  Im Tracy from Idaho, USA.  Thank you in advance to whoever chooses to claim me.  My hubby and I have two college-aged boys and live with three furry family members a 17 year old Australian Shepherd, a 12 year old Sheltie, and the spoiled rotten baby-dog a fivish year old mini Aussie.  We are a non-smoking home.  We have no allergies though I might as well have a vegetable allergy.  Our boys both go to Boise State, so they are close by and often come home for weekend projects and dinners.  The oldest is currently restoring a 1980 Jeep CJ5 and the younger one races Mini Stocks at the local circle track so there are always projects to be worked on.  We own a trucking company and are huge Boston sports fans so vintage jeeps, Peterbilt trucks, Red Sox, Bruins, and the Patriots are all great unconventional theme ideas.

I am partial to neutrals and rustic dcor, though a splash of happy color is always a welcome addition to any room.  I prefer fun functional items over knick knacks.  I am an organization junkie.   I prefer fresh, clean scents like mint and citrus to soft floral scents.  Im partial to silver over gold when it comes to jewelry.  I mostly work with fused glass, though I am learning to be better friends with my sewing machine and I love to learn new things currently grabbing my attention are metal stamping and soap making. 
I also have a list going over on the Ongoing Holiday List Swap, so feel free to check that out, too!

Crafted Items:

1.   This crocheted bowl is awesome love the neutrals!  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050638335865/

5.   I think I saw someone else had the same wishbut I would love to have a go at making this for my newlywed brother and sister-in-law for their 1st anniversary in August.  The heart, embroidered with Tommy loves Megan would be an AWESOME claim.  http://pinterest.com/tracyinboise/things-i-d-like-to-make/
6.   These ticket stub holders are awesome would love to eventually have three one for us and one for each of my boys to preserve all those family trip memories: http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050638558630/

I claim A2K for some crocheted Pinterest surprises.
(1/0/0)

 Grin Hi!  My name is Barbara (aka-LadybugsAndBumblebees). I am married to a wonderful man who supports my crafting; and am blessed to be mom to three terrific kids-DS age 19, DD age 11, and DD age 9. I am a teacher for 'at risk' preschoolers. We live in New York.

I am doing this swap mainly in hopes of receiving items to give as gifts to family, friends, and co-workers, as well as items to use in my classroom; but am open to receiving anything that anyone would like to claim me for!

My Pinterest link is:  http://pinterest.com/LdybgGrl, and my wist link is:  http://wists.com/MissBarbara.  (The links are also in my signature.)  I also have a HUGE, detailed Craftster profile that has both information about me and also what I would like to receive as far as gifts for other people.

I would LOVE to receive anything from my:  'What I Would Love To Receive For My Craftster Swaps' board, 'Please Make Me A Gift For...' board, and 'Ideas For My Classroom' board. (Please feel free to make items that I can use with the students in the classroom...I have the ideas/items pinned, but probably won't ever get around to making them myself!)      Roll Eyes

Feel free to use the other boards for inspiration, and to check my Craftster profile for additional information.

WISHES FOR ME:
-A shirt in size 2x that says:  Inked & Awesome
-Jewelry (necklaces need to be longer for me, bracelets are best if they are adjustable)
-Something that says:  O'hana.  It means family.  It means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.  O'hana.  
-Decorated headbands (The hard, U shaped ones, please.  And nothing too outlandish...I'm a teacher...)
-Home spun, home dyed yarn
-Lanyard for my work ID (I like to match these to my outfit for the day, so more than one is welcome!) (Or even a few for my co-workers for holiday time gifts would be great!)
-Yarn pom-poms in every color for use in my classroom.  (Please make sure they are VERY sturdily made, as they will be being used by 15 preschoolers!   Wink
-Chair covers for the backs of two chairs.  (Please PM me for measurements.)
-Seat covers for two chairs.  (Please PM me for measurements.)
-Gift tags
-homemade paper gift bows
-apple cozy
-banana cozy

WISHES FOR MY HUSBAND:
-Anything bug related...he's an exterminator    Grin  (Just nothing with spiders or praying manitses on them...he doesn't like them.)
-Change holder that can be put in his car...I have no idea how this would work...any ideas?  (It would have to be something that didn't spill while driving.)
-A shirt in size 4-5x that says:  Real Men Marry Teachers
-Crocheted or knitted minion (from the movie 'Despicable Me')

WISHES FOR MY CHILDREN:
-An earbud holder that is on a keyring (I would love one for DS and one for DD.)
-Decorated headbands (the hard, U-shaped ones, please) for DD.
-Lip balm bandolier for DD.
-Nintendo DS holder/bag/?? for DD.
-Aprons for both DDs.  (Please PM me for the needed measurements.)
-Nautical themed rope bracelet with anchor closure for DS.
-Bow ties for DS.
-Anything 'Minecraft' themed (a computer game) for either or both of my DDs.

I am fine with receiving "supply only" packages.  Things I could use are:
-regular Sharpie markers in any/all colors  (black ones are the most needed for my classroom)
-the Sharpie markers you use to write on cups/plates/etc...that don't wash off after being baked in the oven
-black pens
-mechanical pencils
-yarn (new please-acrylic is fine, just please NO wool or fun fur)
-I need two dollar store shoe holders (the ones that hang over the back of a door) (where the openings are on the top, not the sides)  ( I need them for organization in my classroom...not shoes!)     Cheesy
-fabric (Scraps are fine, as long as they are not teeny-tiny.)
-whimsies
-scissors (Both for adults and children-they get lost QUICK in this house!       Tongue
-pocketbook handles
-colored pencils
-seed beads in any/all colors
-well made pencil pouch (i.e.-no plastic ones, please) that has any of my fav. themes on it (I need it to hold my sewing supplies in my crafting bag and the one I have is getting a hole in it.)
-appliques for me to attach to projects I made (any and all subjects are fine)
-zippers (any and all colors are fine, as well as any and all sizes)
-dollar store metal cookie trays (I use them for many things in my classroom)

EXTRAS:
-postcards from where you live (2 would be great, I use one for home and one for my classroom)
-a map of your town (My 11yo DD LOVES maps!)
-sugar free/fat free snacks
-aquaphor lip balm

*I am unable to take and post photos.  If the person who claims me could do so, it would be MUCH appreciated!*

*I do not have allergies, but everyone else in my home has slight allergies.  I can receive from someone who has a pet(s) as long as the craft/supplies is kept away from the pet.  Please do not claim me if you smoke or have smokers in your home. There are NO allergens in my home.*

i claim Ladybugandbumblebees for a few snack bags and napkins and ear bud holders

2 claims  / 0 in transit / 0 received
Claimed Ladybugsandbumblebees for snack bags, napkins, ear bud holders (claimed)
Claimed gamemom42 for plastic bag holder and notecard (claimed)

My name is Christy and I live in Maryland.  I am a stay at home mommy of one really energetic and crazy hilarious daughter.  We also have a lil chihuahua "ChiChi" and a chunky bunny "Fuzz Ball". I am originally from Austin, Texas and even though I love the seasons in Maryland, I am hoping to move back to crazy hot Austin when my husband retires from the Navy.  

I picked up sewing about 2 years ago and have become a crafting freak.  I mostly sew for extended family, they keep me buried in wishlists, so I was thrilled to find Craftster where I can actually get cool stuff in return for the cool stuff I sew, woop woop.  

I don't have any allergies.

LIKES:

Organizing my Pinterest seems like a forever-project, but here's a link to some of my Craftster wishes, some of which are highlighted below:
http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/    (message me about anything on my other boards)

I am also currently in the Ongoing Holiday List 10 swap so you can always look up my latest wishlist there for more ideas

anything funny and/or inappropriate

Game of Thrones, Reno 911, Arrested Development, Labyrinth, East Bound and Down, Despicable Me, (I'll be adding to this, my mind is going blank at the moment)

Peacocks, owls, birds, houses, mushrooms, trees (I'm not a crazy collector of any of them, I just find myself checking out that kind of stuff often)

Grumpy Cat (who doesn't like Grumpy?!)

Steampunk (another thing Craftster got me addicted to!)  I really love the old timey, geary, rusty, machiney look of this

DISLIKES:
crochet stuff (sorry guys, I don't know why!), tie-dye, fluorescents, and I'm not a huge fan of batiks or grandmaw-ey florals.


::::SEWING/EMBROIDERY:::::

Poppet(s) -- a Reno 911 "Dangle" character poppet would be awesome (or any character from  shows above).  I don't have a poppet yet

Teesha Moore patches -- any shape or size, see "likes" above for my pinterest site (kartiana)

Hoopla -- any shape or size, see my pinterest site or "likes" above.  I'd love a hoopla wall

Wristlet (in grays and/or dark versions of colors)
I really like a zip closure, wristlet strap, and a separation inside to keep my keys from scratching my cards and phone.  Below are just examples, but feel free to do a diff one.
This shape is cute http://www.noodle-head.com/2010/04/gathered-clutch-tutorial.html
Or maybe even
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773367722/

Mug  rugs -- artsy, or themed (I like tea, husband likes coffee, and daughter likes milk/cookies).  
Christmas hot cocoa/cookie mug rugs would be awesome too (we set up a hot cocoa bar at Christmas when my sis's family comes to visit, so 4 mug rugs for the kids would be adorable--you don't have to do all 4 though!) (Averia)

A pair of pillow covers (envelope,zipper,whatever) for my 17"x17" pillows
My LR colors are neutral blue and yellow with dark brown couch and accessories
I would also likes some holiday themed pillow covers  (Valentine, Christmas, Easter mostly)

I claim Watsonnc for a set of matryoshka Russian dolls with one of her favorite character sets 
(you are going to be getting the most massive swap package from me ever between this and the 2 claims on OHLS lol!)

1(and 1 from OWS96)/0/0

Hi all!  I am 31, I live in Texas (USA), and my household is me, my husband, and our two puppies.  We do have lots of family, including 10 ½ nieces and nephews (one is on the way!).  I love handmade gifts but really struggle with men and boys, so anything in that vein is particularly awesome – they will be noted as (for the husband/dad/nephews/brothers/etc)!  Since we do have a lot of family, many ideas will be noted that I will take from one to however many is the maximum - obviously, whatever someone wants to do would be awesome.  I'm not saying I NEED 5, just that they can be claimed more than once, lol! 

I am participating in the OHLS so I have a whole Pinterest with gift ideas (some of which I already had) here: http://pinterest.com/j4192/boards/   - the only thing I ask you not to do there is the board entitled For Me to Make!  As claims are made, I will make every effort to remove the item from the boards as soon as possible!

I *love* surprises - if they're for me.  If they are noted as a gift, please let me know so I don't plan something else!  Smiley

No major allergies but if there are any, they will be noted below.

I am totally good with a surprise from my Pinterest or Wists:
I also have a wist http://wists.com/rockmygypsysoul and a pinterest (which is where much of this comes from) http://pinterest.com/lutmerjm/swap-y-stuff-i-wish-i-could-do-that/ and those are totally free game. 

Plus if you just think of something, especially something for the guys, that's awesome, too!

Crafted wishes:

Anything at all related to Disneyland's Main Street Electrical Parade or Harper's Island

Sewn and/or Embroidered

- Crayon rolls like http://www.etsy.com/listing/150627682/crayon-roll-matryoshka-dolls-babushka?ref=sr_gallery_26&ga_search_query=crayon+roll&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all  I actually need one with at least 7 spaces and another one with at least 24 spaces (for my charcoal and soft pastel sets)

- Dog stuffies!  similar to http://pinterest.com/pin/277604764501691712/  I would totally be happy with a dachshund but in an ideal world he would have a slightly longer tail and pointy chihuahua ears which is like Gus, our chiweenie! (these will be decor for me, not a toy for him)
- A dog harness (I can send measurements - it would really need to be a custom fit cause my baby boy is built oddly)
- A dog leash or jacket indicating that Gus is deaf
- Hooded towels like  http://www.etsy.com/listing/77824197/purpleturquoise-owl-hooded-towel?ref=sr_gallery_20&ga_search_query=owl+hooded+towel&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all or http://www.etsy.com/listing/113049633/personalized-hooded-towel-with-monkey?ref=sr_gallery_5&ga_search_query=hooded+towel+monkey&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all (would love a dinosaur one or a Minnie Mouse one)

- DIY Snap-on Interchangeable Onesie with bowties (3-6 months)! like http://pinterest.com/pin/267330927853776516/

- Quilled wall art with a simple word or a letter or two letters
- Paper wreath similar to http://www.etsy.com/listing/93004250/wreath-assorted-paper-roses-you-choose?ref=sr_gallery_11&ga_search_query=purple+paper+wreath&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all - it can be any types of flowers and almost any colors (I'm not a huge fan of orange or orangey-yellows as the main color but otherwise dramatic and bright is what we love!)
