I claim Spikefan for a couple of microwave bowl holders (so cool!)

3 claims  / 2 in transit / 0 received
claimed texscrapper for first aid rolls (sent)
claimed banga for scrabble pillow and 4T mustache shirt (sent)
claimed spikefan for microwave bowl holders  (claimed)

Hey hey!
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 feel like my color style is more modern but I also find myself ooohing over rusty/old colors so I think I'm pretty easy to please. I like both neat and clean looking sewing as well as scratchy free-motion embroidery. I started pinning colors and fabrics to my fabric pinterest board so there might be a bit of inspiration for you there (it's a lot of bright colors currently but I also like dark and bold), but for the most part, don't stress over colors for me! http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/fabric/

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

pincushions -- see my pinterest site, I really love the pincushion-in-an-object idea

I want want want this embroidery case
 http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773367728/

This sewing kit is so cool (any colors) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773367710/

Hoop baskets for my daughters playroom (with or without hardware---bright playroom fabrics) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773072208/

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

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!)

Mini Quilts -- see my pinterest site for inspiration

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)
Here's some pillows I have pinned for inspiration
http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/sew-it-pillows/

Different sized magnetic fabric frames to show artwork and family pics on fridge http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773368284/

Pillow mat case for a girl (I can put pillows in it) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723769674199/

Fabric envelope needle book http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773396374/

Book pouches, so neat!! I'd love tons of these in adult and kid themes http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395308/

Cat keyboard rest, love the white cat http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773393487/


::::CRAFTIES:::::

I would love handmade stamps -- I really love the house/town stamps  I keep seeing on Craftster! (Lo{ve})

wood slice chalkboard (or even any sizes of wood slices without chalk paint, love them) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773363242/

birdhouses (any shape/size finished/unfinished) with a flat back for hanging on wall

I would flip for a set of character (any of my favs above) Matryoshka (sp?) dolls like http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773072033/

Wine cork hot plate holder (long or short) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773070638/

Glow in the dark Play-doh http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723770920774/

This old looking wooden wonky house set is awesome! http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773396324/

State magnets, would love this set! http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395053/

wood burned utensils, any design http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395014/

I claim Watsonc7 for christmas mug rugs

1 claims, 0 being shipped, 0 received

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

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 love to sew, bake and make things pretty. I am a very eclectic type. I love tea, american football and hockey. I obviously dig bones (forensic anthropology does that to a person!) and I prefer darker tones. I love books and read all the time (well when I have time) I love anthropology and native inspired art (specifically northwest coast and Mayan Art I LOVE the raven images from the kuakutl and the jaguar images from the maya!) I like pin up girls and pirates. I love Jane Austen and Johnny Cash.I have a great appreciation for star wars things that do not seem like star wars, but are (does that make sense?) I love firefly, Indiana Jones, and have a sunglass and tea addiction....  I love sacred hearts and our lady of Guadeloupe imagery. I am a HUGE football fan. I mean I am in SIX fantasy football leagues this season. I love The Ohio State University Buckeyes and the New England Patriots (Winnipeg Jets and LA Kings in Hockey, which has become my new obsession)!  I prefer darker of bolder colors i.e jewel tones. I dont do pastels.

millinery veiling/supplies

Embroidery supplies (hoops, floss, patterns , stuff to embroider on, etc)

Sewing patterns (I would love a good pencil skirt pattern or some vintage looking dresses 40s or 50s, or anything off my pintrest)

Button/Badge maker HUGE wish, but if you happen to come across one or are looking to get rid of one, I'm your girl! I'll even send you some badges as a thanks Wink

Pin-up girl fabric, pin-up rockabilly stencils, the Alexander Henry pinup stuff I LOVE. vintage Pin up images

I claim redstar13 for some cool decorated pillowcases

1st claim this round

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 zombie survival ...?  something?  If this is your thing, let's chat and figure out what would be good.  It's not my thing but I need this for a gift for a dear friend who is convinced it's coming  Shocked

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, Huh)

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 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 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

Wall art that says "The Queen is Crafting".  Any medium, bright colors, any size.

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

Christmas (traditional Christmas green, red, and white, not religious)

Supplies: 

fairy tale themed fabric

cotton batting
interfacing (sew in or iron on)
your favorite sewing or needlework supply that you just couldn't live without

I claim redstar13 for some fabric and lace


About me:
My name is Karan but I go by Kook or Kookie.I am almost 46 yrs old and live in Nottinghamshire, England with my husband Matt. I'm an empty nester, my chicks (two sons age 19 and 25)  have flown the coop so now I have two dogs two keep me company. Nala is a 5 yr old Golden Labrador and Sharnie a 1.5yr old Staffordshire Bull Terrier. My beautiful furry girls!

I'm plus sized so please ask for sizes if needed,even jewellery needs to be bigger than average.

I love bright happy colours and have an intense dislike of pastel shades. I don't like white for clothing. I love tie-dye and batiks and Indian textiles like paisley prints and embroidery on Sarees <3 <3 <3 shisha embroidery is gorgeous.

I'm a soft,flowing and curvy sort,no zig-zags and geometric patterns for me.

I sew,crochet and knit mostly though I do branch out into other crafty things as the whim takes me my big love at the moment is sewing dolls.

I don't mind receiving recycled,pre-owned,gently used,re-gifted or re-made goodies.

1st claim/0 shipped/0 rec'd

My wishlist.

Link to my Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/kookaloostarr/boards/
Anything from any board apart from made by me is OK with me although please check my comments on individual items. I don't need exact copies, "inspired by" is more than welcome  Smiley
Same applies to my Wist http://www.wists.com/kookaloo though it's not as up to date as my Pinterest.

Sewn:
1.Kindle case/stand for my Kindle Touch,like this one: http://wrappedupinrainbows.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/diy-tutorial-kindle-case-and-stand.html
