First up is Watsonc7!

I claim spikefan for an iron man glow reactor shirt

8 claims  / 2 in transit / 4 received
Spikefan for glow reactor shirt (claimed)
Texscrapper for Chapstick cosies (claimed)
Spikefan for a reversible scoodie (sent)
Lo{ve} for microwave bowl holders (received)
Kookaloo_Starr for fabric bracelets (sent)
Redstar13 for Halloween decorations (received)
Ladybugs for snack bags, napkins, ear bud holders (received)
gamemom42 for plastic bag holder and notecard (received)

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 pinterest 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 (unless its a specific request), tie-dye, fluorescents, and I'm not a huge fan of orange, or batiks or grandmaw-ey florals.

::::SEWING/EMBROIDERY::::: 

My daughter (size 8 or kids medium) refuses to give up last years ratted out kitty hoodie (this is it, pretty simple http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573552) , so I'd love to get her one made with some of her favorite specifics: (triple bonus) glow in the dark eyes/paws (her current one is glow in the dark), cute ears on hood, a deeper than normal hood to cover her face better (we like to walk to school especially in the winter so it will keep wind off her cheeks better), built-in fingerless paws (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573555/) and ooooh a detachable tail (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573525/).
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573507/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573562/
The links are examples with different specifics in them, feel free to create your interpretation, she will freak out over any kitty hoodie I'm sure.

Poppet(s) -- a Reno 911 "Dangle" character poppet would be awesome (or any character from  shows above). 

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

Cat pouch http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773423987/

(2) Car toy bag, whatever colors.  http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773430200/

Reusable kitchen towel rolls, any neutralish colors to match with a variety of kitchens http://pinterest.com/pin/248049891949374970/

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

Mug shaped notebook cover, love this http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723772049221/

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

Elastic envelopes, any colors or patterns http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723771949143/ (Averia)

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

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)
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/

Bar stool covers (2)   My chairs are 14.5" for the measurement.  any patterned fabric with teals, yellows, lighter greens, lighter blues, or browns would work

I claim spikefan for some Boondock Saints gear.  This is my 1st claim this round.  1,0,0)

Hi, all!  I’m 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 13 year old Sheltie, and the spoiled rotten baby-dog – a sixish 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 dιcor, 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.  I’m 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/

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/  Got one from the amazing pjr107 in the FOC Secret Swap, still working on the others!

8.     Adore this handy half apron:  http://pinterest.com/pin/294071050638790079/  Got an amazing version from pjr107 in the FOC secret swap, but I love it SO very much, I'd like to have one for my home studio, and one to keep at the teaching studio I frequently go to!

Yarn keeps me sane(ish)

Ha! I actually managed to find something in my yarn stash!

I'd like to claim GlassKicker for fingerless mittens. We'll see how stripy they turn out Smiley This is my first claim this round.

1 claim, 0 in transit, 0 received

Hello! My name is Ann and I live in Sweden, in a suburb to Stockholm. I work in a community pharmacy in an “upper class” neighborhood, and it can lead to interesting customer encounters at times... The customers can be very demanding at times! I also do quality work for my pharmacy chain (Good Pharmacy Practice, education, all kinds of fun stuff). I love my job most of the time!

I’m a yarnie and my favourite crafts are knitting and crochet. I don’t spin, and while I find the craft cool I don’t plan to start spinning (my shoulders would probably fall off if I tried, and adding fiber to my yarn stash… no… I’d need a second craft room in that case!). I also dabble in all kinds of crafts. My craft room is a creative mess, or perhaps just a mess... But yay! I’ve got a craft room.

I have no allergies. Strong scents can trigger migraines for my husband (only relevant if you craft for him). Any wishes for people who might be bothered by pets/smoke/other allergies are marked as such!

I’d love to receive something repurposed/recycled/pre-loved as long as it’s clean and useable.  If you want to send something without stuffing or filling it to save postage that’s probably fine. Just ask!

I can provide any measurements you need, just ask! Oh, and if you can craft one of my wishes, but using another craft than I’ve listed it under, feel free to do that.

Crafted wishes
- Craft of your choice – I always enjoy receiving something another crafter enjoys making. So make me a surprise in a craft you enjoy!
- A pinterest-inspired surprise - http://www.pinterest.com/annchen82/boards/ (I don’t need exact copies unless the pin says so)

Sewn
I’m not good at sewing so no matter your skill level I’ll be impressed (and thankful!)

- An apron. I like cooking, but I’m also a bit clumsy (in fact, I’ve been known to eat while still wearing an apron since… er… I apparently still need a bib *hides*)
- A man sized apron. Gustav, my husband is the real cook in the family but none of our aprons fit him very well...
- A mug rug. I have a couple pinned if you want inspiration, but feel free to make something in your crafty style instead!
- A heatpad for my neck. (filled with rice or something like that?) I’d love if it was shaped to sit better on the neck/shoulders.  Here’s a pattern/tutorial I found: http://www.craftyendeavor.com/2012/02/02/rice-shoulder-heating-pad-with-lavender/ I can fill and close it to make it cheaper to send. 
- Matching tablecloth of some sort to fit two round tables. The tables are 60 cm in diameter and black. (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40136681/)The tablecloth would need to be washable since I know someone is going to spill BBQ-sauce or tea or some other sticky substance on them sooner or later... I’d prefer something smaller that doesn’t hang down over the edge of the table. Something dark purple perhaps?
- 4-6 placemats. Good colours would be red, black, shades of grey, silver or some combination of those. I also like the combination chocolate brown and teal.
- A crayon roll for my niece (Something like this perhaps? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/207658232789677896/) – Pet hair and smoke free please! (If you have pets in your home I could wash it before giving it to her if you just let me know)

Yarny things
Most things yarny will make me happy, including yarn Smiley

- A hat for me
- Knitted o crocheted dishcloths (cotton or cotton blend yarn, please). Simple garter stitch ones would be perfect, but if you want to make a patterned one that’s fine too. Smiley Any colours.
- Mittens or gloves. Fingerless or regular, but for fingerless ones I prefer models with a thumb or thumb slit of some sort since they stay on better. If I have the choice I’d love the lowest thumb joint covered since it can get achy when it’s cold. Ok model: http://melaniebug.tripod.com/Suzetta%27s%20fingerless%20mitten%20picture.jpg Better model: http://chicenvelopements.wordpress.com/2012/10/28/fingerless-mittens-from-an-old-felted-sweater/ Near perfect model. Yay, thumb gusset: http://virtuallyamy.wordpress.com/2008/10/24/knitting-my-first-fingerless-mitts/
- Podster gloves. (free pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/podster-gloves) I’ve been meaning to knit some for me, but it hasn’t happened yet…
- Socks or slipper socks – I know, they take forever! But if you’re one of the rare knitters/crocheters who can crank them out like nobody’s business feel free to claim me Wink I think I’m an US 8 in shoe size.  Anything Aran weight or thinner should fit in my indoor shoes, but I’m game for bulkier slipper socks too.

Papercraft
- Stationery (I love writing “real” letters, and I write long ones so I’d love at least 2 sheets of paper per envelope. Or skip the envelopes if you want, I usually get left over envelopes)
- Cards or greeting cards.

Misc/Any craft
- Coasters.
- Handcarved stamp
- A shawl pin Thank you Avesthel!
- A trash can of some sort for the car. Bonus points for one you can line with a plastic bag or something to contain messes.
- Stitch markers for knitting and/or crochet. Thank you Avesthel!
- Something autumn inspired (http://www.pinterest.com/annchen82/autumn/)
- A soap dish that drains away the water in some way so the soap doesn’t get all soggy in there...
- A spoon rest for the kitchen

Supplies (supply claims are fine, but I do love when there’s a tiny crafted something in the package)
- Bells (This style, not too small ones please: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/207658232789039298/)
- Empty altoid tin to craft with (I don’t like altoids so only empty ones please)
- Safety eyes! I have a hard time finding a decent selection locally so any size and style is welcome. Even lonely single eyes would be helpful (I like making monsters Wink)
- 4mm and/or 6mm black safety eyes for a specific pattern.
- Cotton yarn, in sport weight. Not too loosely plied. (This is a brand I have in my stash so it would be great if it’s similar: http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/schachenmayr-smc-catania-solids) I like to crochet flowers and I’d love to have tons of colours to choose from. Partial skeins are ok! I’d love to get a bunch of your leftovers.
- Acrylic yarn for crocheting amigurumi. Partial skeins are ok . Same as above – your leftovers would make me happy Smiley
- Left over embroidery floss. I want to learn, but I want to practice before buying a ton of embroidery supplies...
- The scratchiest synthetic yarn you can find – what’s horrible for hats and the like is GREAT for pot-scrubbers.
- Some kind of yarn that’s local to you or to your country. Souvenir yarn is fun!
- Addi circular needle, pretty much any size. Longer cable = better. (I don’t know why anyone would part with these lovely needles, but if you want to de-stash I’m here)
- Stamp carving supplies or some kind of starter kit for stamp carving. I’d love to learn!
- Small amounts of wool for needle felting. I’m just starting out…
- Vintage knitting patterns or leaflets.
- Old copies of The Knitter magazine. I have a lot of them, so ask before sending! The oldest one I’ve got is issue 18 so anything older than that I haven’t got.
- Stamps to use in papercraft (as in the ones you put on letters)
- Some kind of portable yarn cutter. (bonus points if it’s something I could take through airport security without problems)


Thanks in advance for claiming me! I'll have to pretty the list up a bit later I think...

I claim Annchen for a shawl pin and some stitch markers.   Smiley  
This is my first claim this round.

------------------

Hi, I live in Florida in the USA with my hubby and pet birds.   Smiley   Thank you in advance for whomever chooses me!   Cheesy


Loves/Likes:
My favorite color is tiffany blue / robins egg blue minty green/blue/aqua. I’m not a fan of sky blue though, even though it is similar to robins egg blue. I also love black, silver, aquas, cooler colors (purple, blue, green) in jewel tones. In jewelry I prefer silver over gold color.   I like longer necklaces (22" to 24")   I like shiny and sparkley things. I love birds… particularly chubby song birds and chickens (prefer hens to roosters).  But I also love crows and ravens.  I also love period pieces (like Pride and Prejudice, Downton Abbey), fantasy art, reading, rainy days, mushrooms, music, brown paper packages tied up with string! Wink I like to knit and crochet. I love gaming like World of Warcraft. Harry Potter is probably my all time favorite movie and book series. Although I also love Twilight too (books and movies).   Food (baked, jams/preserves etc), handspun yarn, yarn, fiber/batts/roving, natural dyed yarns/fiber, bold colorful yarn/fiber, fabric (bonus if dyed by you!), Christmas ornaments, coffee, cute sheep, cute mice, handmade buttons (with holes for sewing onto things), strong fridge magnets (rare earth magnet strong) of various things like resin with glitter.   Rain, winter and fall, velvet, dragons (fantasy not eastern), books, reading, chocolate, fantasy literature, sea glass, windchimes, music, Christmas, stained glass, handwritten letters, Harry Potter, Gryffindor
Pinterest board with fabric/color/fiber examples of things I like:  http://www.pinterest.com/craftybirdy/likes-fabrics-yarn-colors-fibers/

Dislikes:
strong scents and cigarette smoke. Politics. Orange, yellow, pink, neon, skulls, sock monkeys, pinup art or zombies (particularly the type with gore and blood), crucifixes, lace, country themes, clowns, baby dolls or doll parts, gory/bloody stuff, body part things (anatomical hearts, eyeballs etc), houndstooth print


Allergies:
I am fairly certain I am allergic to mohair…it feels like glass on my skin. Sad
Strong scents and cigarette smoke give me migraines.   Sad  

Have fun and thanks for crafting for me!  Smiley

bifold wallet like this one — no magnetic snaps please. And I'd like it to measure less than 4″ by 4″. I’m not too keen on this fabric either… something more robin’s egg blue would be lovely.


Embroidery

I like blackwork, but not too keen on redwork since I’m not a huge red fan. I also like full color. Smiley

♥ Embroidery of one of the quotes or verses on my pinterest board:  http://www.pinterest.com/craftybirdy/crafty-things-i-am-wishing-for/

Ghost birds embroidery – I would love this embroidered as a hoopla! Love the colors in the original too. Smiley

Initial and pearl pendant – This is so pretty! My initial would be A (uppercase if possible).  Thank you, GlassKicker!  
Beaded Ornamental This is so pretty! Except instead of a necklace I would rather it be two identical pendants and then used the clear beading thread to attach them back to back (at the points maybe?) so to made a double sided Christmas ornament.

♥  “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live”
– This is a quote from Harry Potter by Albus Dumbledore and it is one of my most favorite quotes. I would love this quote done in a crafty/arty way. Maybe embroidered, maybe painted, maybe stamped on a pendant (although it would have to be a tiny font to fit it all in I would think!).

I claim Avesthel for a Pinterest Surprise.
1/0/0

Okay, it's getting closer and closer to Christmas, so I am getting excited! I have a board for "christmas swaps", feel free to craft from that, as we threw out ALL of our christmas decorations when we moved! I am adding some gifts to my list that I would like some help with, so please feel free to claim those! (I know I like crafting more for the craftster member, I don’t know if anyone else is the same way)

ABOUT ME:
I am 25 years old, and I live near St. Louis, MO. I have a 2 year old daughter, and a boyfriend of 4 years. I go to school full time for Graphic Design with one and a half semesters left. I am very crafty and don't stick to a particular method, so it's hard to pinpoint my expertise. I am an intermediate crocheter, I paint, draw, sculpt, assemble, yada, yada. I am always looking for sewed items, as that's the one crafting method I haven't tried yet.

Likes:
I like chevron, stripes, india inspired designs, bold shapes, typography, and antiqued designs/styles. (I have an album.)
I’m a huge fan of leather(or pleather) and canvas. (together or apart)
I like bold, dark, jewel, and fall tones. My favorite colors are coral and mustard yellow.
Owl anything!
Alien anything! (the little green guys, not the movies)
Lavender, Hippy, and Coffee scents
Dangly earrings
Everything nerdy
Turquoise (the mineral, not particularly the color)
Anything wearable and leather (I'm a leather jacket and combat boots kinda girl)
Anything from the following fandoms in ALWAYS welcome: Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, Merlin, The Guild, Supernatural, Harry Potter, or Community.

Dislikes:
Purples, neon colors, blues.
Useless, cluttering stuff.
Fruit scents and minty scents
Anything super girly
Any design you'd find in a grandma's house. Butterflies, asian influences, dragonflies, realistic flowers, pretty much anything that goes along with that "peace, unity, and love" trend. Although, I DO enjoy tie-dye in dark colors.
(if you're unsure, just ask. Cheesy)

I have no allergies that I know of, and hopefully I don't find out about them from your swaps!


THINGS ON MY SUPER-DUPER WANT LIST ARE IN BOLD!
I am not looking for Pinterests surprises at the moment, I want to focus on my wishlist right now. Smiley
http://www.pinterest.com/craftsterbreegy

WISHLIST:
SEWING:
A camera strap! (a patterned, stylish fabric, preferably)
Stretchy fabric hat in red and brown, or mustard yellow, or heather gray with another “heather” color.
Throw Pillows in off white, tan, brown, light/dark grey, or mustard yellow. Lots of inspiration on styles here. I also need 1 throw pillow cover in those colors for a lingering throw pillow in my house.
Oven mitts (red, black, and/or white in the theme of owls preferably)
A fabric cigarette case for myself. (and if they are easy to make, maybe a second one for my mother-in-law in orange Wink)
Kindle Cover. I would actually LOVE this as a Merlin.
Buntings. There are loads of them on this board.
A remote holder like this. In yellow, white, brown, tan, and/or grey. Designs are okay.
Super hero masks for my autistic little brother. In Sonic, Spiderman, Batman, original Pokemon, and Dragonball Z(maybe have saiyan hair attached?). He is very particular about his cartoons (his eye for detail is amazing), so please try and get the designs as much like the character as possible. He is also 20, so it's not for a child's head.
Travel Trashbag for my car (back of the seat one) (black/tan/turquoise)
Draft Blockers. (I can fill them myself) Color combos on the link.
A car organizer maybe with a few extra spots for small toy figurines and crayons. In black/tan/turquoise colors, preferably.
An activity holder in red, white, and/or black. Designs are okay, owls a plus. =)


KNITTED/CROCHETED:
Size 8 (or 8 1/2) house slippers (I love the elf ones, and the fitted two tone ones)!
This awesome hat!
Amigurumi Viking in Purple and Yellow (minnesota vikings) for my father.
My daughter would love this hello kitty scarf. I know i have seen a free HK granny square pattern somewhere, so it's not necessary to buy this pattern.
Crochet laptop cover in minecraft theme.
A lacy and/or dainty scarf in a deep purple. (just as long as it is not super thick, the pattern doesn't matter)
Plain colored crocheted or knitted beanies for men. I need 3 all together.
Yo Gabba Gabba Mittens. Seriously, my daughter saw me pinning these and went apeshit.

I claim Breegy for a fabric memory game

1st claim this round

Hi!  I'm Teresa from Georgia.  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.

These Pinterest boards are open for swap claims.  I would really love anything off the OWS/OPS Biggest Wishes board but any of the following boards are great.

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 pink toiletries bag personalized with the name Alisha.  It needs to be just big enough for toothbrush, paste, small hairbrush, and a few trial size toiletries.  It's for an 11 year old so something fun/cute/happy.

A full apron (for a short slim woman) in a very very simple style with a painted/embroidered/screen printed/? sugar skull.  No ruffles, no lace, no flounces, no bling....

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, storybag... ?)

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).

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 journal made from an old fairy tale,  Golden Book or  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: (I really would prefer crafted claims right now but if a supply only claim works best for you I'll take it)

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!
