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!  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 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 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!

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 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 dont 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.)
Im 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)

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.

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)

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!

I'm claiming Gamemom42 for this pincushion http://www.pinterest.com/pin/914862397389183/ and some TM type patches  Smiley

About me: My name is Karan but I go by Kook or Kookie.I am 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 claim Kookaloo_Starr for some art for her craft room!

This is my first 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 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.

I claim Banga for Olliblocks (so cute!!)

1 claims  / 0 in transit / 0 received
Banga for Olliblocks (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.  

We 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 (still plenty more on pinterest) 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 11 swap so you can always look up my latest wishlist there for more ideas http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427830.msg5102901#msg5102901    

anything funny and/or inappropriate.  I love off the wall humor, feel free to translate that any way you want into anything you make for me

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:

i claim watsonc7 for mugrug! as many as i can hand stitch nicely.


1/0/0

Hello! i am amanda. i am going to try something a lil different with my list. my list is for family so i did not know what to put for likes/dislikes except for them . as i pretty much like everything except gma flowery.

ABOUT ME:
I am 30 years old, and a bit of a silly person. i have a computer savvy husband, and three very kind kits that litterally ask for nothing on their xmas lists, because they worry too much about how the family is doing financially even though we do not ever say anything around them. luckily i know what they love though so i can do the list!


Wishlists for diff family members:



baby Didi' S :

Likes: (since this part of the list is for 8 month old everdeen, i am posting about likes i have for her.) Things with zippers, parts that can be moved, velcro elements, flaps etc. the more things that can move or whatnot the better as it will hold her interest! she really loves micky mouse clubhouse (i just got her in a previous swap a micky crochet outfit and omg she loves it! squeals when she sees herself in the mirror!)

Dislikes: not into flowery fabrics. plain stuffy toys without any kind of something on it like zipper or something she can do. (right now she is very good at pointing her lil pointer finger and loves to flip things with it, like zipper pulls, she gets board with her stuffed animals that have no interesting stuff going on.

she has no allergies (as far as i know of yet, as we have dog and cats and aunt smokes in her own room down the hall from us.)

WISHLIST:
SEWING:


1. ball with houses with a zipper?http://www.pinterest.com/pin/109634572152089520/ close to?

Pot with lid and playfood attached with ribbon. the pot does not have to be metal, could be cloth. but of course she would love metal best. with a wooden spoon would be awsome! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/275986283384514845/

this with ribbons that come off the outsides of the rings http://www.pinterest.com/pin/572872015070253692/

 toy made from zippered sweatshirt http://www.pinterest.com/pin/59813501272833460/ i like that it has zipper and large buttons and long ribbons and such. would be nice if it had a lil pocket she could pull something out of that is attached to a ribbon?

these http://www.pinterest.com/pin/396035360952003611/

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/572590540094836079/ fake fur, and whatever other textured pages, with zipper somewhere, maybe big buttons.

EARS rings toys with stuff: someone could use shower curtain rings in bright color and a set of these? the ears look very fast and easy, would like it if some ribbons could be added on to hang a lil like four inches not taggie loops though as she seems to ignore them. she has a facination with mullti colored yarn too.http://www.pinterest.com/pin/225250418832692194/

a set of these, colored like the colors of a rainbow pls, like one for each color of the rainbow. shorter hanger loop though so not a strangulation risk. and please have the beads at super secure like not just a single yarn through.. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/127015651962175606/

some kind of toy in the center with ribbons on it this long instead of tags http://www.pinterest.com/pin/189291990561497517/

any kind of washable diaper! she is in store throwaways size 3 14-28 lbs atm. i do not care about what fabric or whatever! need these greatly! free patterns all over on pinterest if you type in washable diapers. too many to link to. this is a wish of the whole family!!!!!!!!!!!

KNITTED/CROCHETED:

would love this mickey water bottle holder for her to use for sippy cup or bottle (she is obsessed with mickey!http://www.pinterest.com/pin/197595502374256713/

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/275986283384514845/ i listed this in sewn but could do crochet version pot with food on ribbons

this is pretty cool!http://www.pinterest.com/pin/456411743456451960/

birds in eggs! and egg carton!http://www.pinterest.com/pin/456411743457678783/

crochet house with birds that go inthrough flapdoor like this! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/556053885212188945/

crochet dr set: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/556053885212191309/. just the toys if the bag too is too much

other:

a set of nesting dolls for baby didi to play with! example in black and white: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/180918110001531063/, example in color (animals) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/75364993735843972/, monsters (i like that each one is different color. feel free to use your own style!) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/106960559869620780/

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

Paige's list:(she is 11)

Her brother and father are getting hats so i would love if she could get claimed for one

likes: she loves peace signs! multi colored are better! rainbow colors, and lime green!
Dislikes: flowery fabrics
allergies: none

sewn: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/67976275598239156/. peace sign sock monkey

Crochet or knit:
my main wish for paige is this: would be awsome if she could get a viking hat with rainbow braids (instead of a bearded) and maybe a peace sign on the front! like this except with rainbow braids, and a peace sign somewhere incorporated http://www.pinterest.com/pin/76420524897999000/ but in adult size like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/46302702391042784/ would be cool if the part pictured grey could be lime green which is her favorite color!

this winter hat except in rainbow colors. with a rainbow mohawk, peace sign could be added on as a felt pretty peace sign or fabric instead of knit on. with peace sign on both sides of head please and pompom tassle parthttp://www.pinterest.com/pin/112519690659841235/

Other: any other peace sign anything could be thrown in if you want to rid of it or just feel like adding. my main focus is getting her a hat. so if you have a hat idea that isn't shown, pm me first bc claiming and i will look at it. prefur silly like mohawk as dad and son are getting viking ones!


For my husband:
likes: videogames, computers, firefly, fallingskies, technology , shooter games

dislikes: sports

stenciled shirts: mens size Large, or large medium
( He is a mason so kinda large muscle structure) he really wants the battlefield friends one!

a shirt (but with a small stencilled grenade under this quote: " I got promoted!" -Battlefield Friends here is an example of a large grenade, to look at and simplify a smaller version. the words are the important part of the shirt! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/529102656191788042/

this shirt:http://www.pinterest.com/pin/102668066477393417/


Soap makers look at this:
i would love to give him soap shaped like a gun! could probably make a mold with a nintendo gun or squirtgun . http://www.pinterest.com/pin/571253533955548457/

Other:

this hat: top one but with brown beard. hat needs to be camo and like in pic: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/571253533955543966/

crochet or knit:
i wondered if this could be made but modified so that the red part would hold a water bottle (like the kind you buy and throw away)? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/571253533955236162/


for my son (8 yrs old):

r2d2 knit mits http://www.pinterest.com/pin/101682904058829796/

womens viking hat. but with black yarn braids instead of yellow please! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/5277724535153681/

i love this bug waterbottle holder (the one with the green face) but if it could have mandibles where the antenae are in the picture and the entenae under where the eyes are like hanging down would be better. maybe with a pair of wings on like a cool beetle or something? use your creativity i love bugs. any bugs except ladybugs, and butterfly for this please. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/52143308156889048/
 
for my aunt: (my adoptive mother whom i live with): i would love to give her a waterbottle holder with a shoulder strap. she loves sea life so it would be awsome if it could have some blue beads and fish and shells on it some how and if it looked like fish netting: inspiration? this is macramae http://www.pinterest.com/pin/189854940511276505/

Sculpting or assemblage:
found object and polymer or paperclay birds? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/441071357226679194/ my aunt loves birds! i saw so many neat ones in the lil bird swap! could also use a premade bird and assemblage it up. she loves gears and such, measuring tape, etc.


EXTRAS / supplies
anything i could give for stocking stuffers

if anyone makes homemade soap, those are my favorite and i would gladly take whatever soap scraps from when you cut soap like lil cube leftovers or whatnot.

artsy or textured yarn

any lil old baby toys you want to rid of.

does anyone have any washable diapers? or those diaper covers that cant be peed through i want to do the washable diaper thing. ok if they used to be your kids when they were little, old store purchased or thrift or whatever.

I claim artista83 for baby toys for Didi. I have lots of scraps and ribbon and buttons and such so I can't get these toys out of my mind now, hopefully I can take a chunk out of her list...I'm going to attempt the sweater toy, tube fabric toys, bunny ears, and the toy with strips of ribbon (I'll attach it to another toy as in your comments).  

2 claims  / 0 in transit / 0 received
Artista83 for baby toys (claimed)
Banga for Olliblocks (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.  

We don't have any allergies.

LIKES:  

Here's 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 11 swap so you can always look up my latest wishlist there for more ideas http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427830.msg5102901#msg5102901    

anything funny and/or inappropriate.  I love off the wall humor, feel free to translate that any way you want into anything you make for me

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 out)

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.

i claim watsonc7 for grumpy cat suprise/s. (as per your other wishlist request)


2/0/0

Thank you watsonc7 for claiming didi! my next wish or goal, is hoping somone might be able to claim a stenciled t-shirt for hubby if possible. that is the main next wish.he really would love the battlefield friends one! battle field friends is a utube super short cartoon series about battlefeild game players. he constantly shouts out things like "i got promoted" or "dip dip, potato chip" so those words would be totally awsome on a t-shirt size men's large, but if no one can, feel free to see/ choose anything else on list. thanks!

i should be good for stuff for didi, but i left it on here in case ppl only see stuff they could make on that list or something. always welcome a lil toy or something as an extra or part of a claim if someone feels like it. but since this is my xmas wishlist i would prefur if someone elses could maybe be chosen. it is ok if you cant though. hugs my friends!



Hello! i am amanda. i am going to try something a lil different with my list. my list is for family so i did not know what to put for likes/dislikes except for them . as i pretty much like everything except gma flowery.

ABOUT ME:
I am 30 years old, and a bit of a silly person. i have a computer savvy husband, and three very kind kits that litterally ask for nothing on their xmas lists, because they worry too much about how the family is doing financially even though we do not ever say anything around them. luckily i know what they love though so i can do the list! i prefur crafted items more than supply packages, as i am doing this as a form getting xmas gifts for the family.


Wishlists for diff family members:


baby Didi' S :

Likes: (since this part of the list is for 8 month old everdeen, i am posting about likes i have for her.) Things with zippers, parts that can be moved, velcro elements, flaps etc. the more things that can move or whatnot the better as it will hold her interest! she really loves micky mouse clubhouse (i just got her in a previous swap a micky crochet outfit and omg she loves it! squeals when she sees herself in the mirror!)

Dislikes: not into flowery fabrics. plain stuffy toys without any kind of something on it like zipper or something she can do. (right now she is very good at pointing her lil pointer finger and loves to flip things with it, like zipper pulls, she gets board with her stuffed animals that have no interesting stuff going on.

she has no allergies (as far as i know of yet, as we have dog and cats and aunt smokes in her own room down the hall from us.)

WISHLIST:

a set of these, colored like the colors of a rainbow pls, like one for each color of the rainbow. shorter hanger loop though so not a strangulation risk. and please have the beads at super secure like not just a single yarn through.. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/127015651962175606/

I claim artista for a supply package/something off her list.
Im on my phone, so ill have to look again later.
2/0/0

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 dont 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.)
Im 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!

I claim Breegy for a pair of crochet slippers for herself and a crochet men's hat.

1st claim this round
0 sent
0 recieved

 Hello, Im missmoppet from Texas.  Im a wife to a wonderful hubby, mom to a sweet kiddo whos growing so fast hes almost the same size as I am!  I am also mom to a crazy velcrod to my hip pug.  I love spending family time at home playing games, watching movies, talking, reading and just enjoying each other.  I have an addiction to reading, crafting and Pugs.  Colors I like are teal, brown, red, black, grey and white.  My favorite crafts to do are knit and crochet.  But I dabble in other crafting techniques too.  Themes I like are pirates, pugs, harry potter, 1950s, tattoos and video games.  I do not like creepy, adult or baby themes or the colors yellow and orange.  I do not have any allergies however dear hubby does.  They are mostly outside ones with the exception of cats and dust.  However, as long as you dont send anything covered in cat hair or a box of dust bunnies-I can just wash it or wipe the items.  On another note-If yarn is sent or items made with it please make sure it is machine washable and machine dryable.  The same goes with anything with fabric paint-it must stand up to machine washing and machine drying without cracking and peeling.  I have a pug that sheds like crazy and machine washing and machine drying things is required due to pug fur that sticks to everything.  Now, with that being said let the swapping begin! 

Crafted items:
-HUGE WISH-dog security vest replica.  Pug size-I can send exact measurements.  I love this one, but right about the word security I would LOVE the red/white resident evil symbol.  It doesnt need to be padded like the one in the picture.
http://www.all-about-pitbull-dog-breed.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=868
-pug silhouette art.  Love this whole idea but different colors.  Need an 8x10 on one of those stretched canvas boards.
http://www.etsy.com/listing/126284062/pug-art-print-any-color-8x10-dog?ref=shop_home_active
-Soft dog harness similar to the one in the link.  Black with the red/white resident evil symbol on the chest area.  None of that fake fur trim though.
http://cdn.gwlittle.com/images/uploads/Puppia-Brown-Snowflake-Dog-Harness_lg.jpg
-custom ceramic dog bowls for my pug.  Must be dish washer safe.  One that says feed me on the inside & one that says water me.   So when they are empty you can read it.  Ha ha!
-Wings for my shoes.  These look easy enough to replicate.  I Would love a pair of white ones and a pair of silver ones.
 http://technabob.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Shwings-Shoe-Wings.jpg
-Batman shirt.   Two of these are on my list a juniors medium and a mens small.  Regular crew neck style shirt.   
http://skreened.com/wellthatsjustsuper/i-m-not-saying-i-m-batman
-resident evil shirt.  Juniors medium.  Crew neck.  Please no fabric paint that cracks/peels.  I need it to be machine washable and machine dryable.
http://skreened.com/designbison/underhanded-corp
-monkey costume like this for my pug.  LOL.  Or if you can find a pattern to make one-Id love the pattern that way I can make him a bunch of monkey suits.  LOL.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Zack-Zoey-Monkey-Dog-Costume-LARGE-/321193603848#ht_945wt_1173
-sewn lap blanket for the couch.  Tan with a pug silhouette.  Doesnt have to be huge or anything-it will just be to put on the couch as a special spot for my pug.  Hence the tan to blend in with his fur.
-tshirt for my pug.  White with the words free hugs on it.
-tshirt for my pug.  White with the Jolly Roger on it.
-ceramic yarn bowl.  Any color or style but a black/teal one would rock my socks.
-A nice little wooden sign for the front door that says Solicitors, ring door bell then run fast.  The dog needs exercise.  Then maybe have a paw print on the sign.  Just please keep the sign looking professional.
 -A burgundy hoodie that looks like a quidditch  team jacket.  Weasly on the back and Rons quidditch number.  Mens size small or Jrs size large. 
-quilted mug rugs. You could do it themed in pugs, pirates or tattoos.  I also like the ones that are black with rainbow colored patchwork pieces in the center.  Would like them big enough for a mug of coffee and a little plate.  That way I can have my coffe and donut on it.
-Pug coffee sign. 8x10 size would love it with a teal/chocolate brown color scheme.

I'm claiming Texscrapper for some brand art (unless she no longer wants it Cheesy)

1 claim, 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.

Going to follow the trend and put in a holiday list format

I claim Averia for some dichroic pendants in blue and some other fun stuffs in blue!  This is my 2nd claim this round.  2,0,0)

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 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 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!

I claim Glasskicker for some "Boston"-y baby things! (2,0,0)

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 New!Hand Painted Art like this for my office http://www.pinterest.com/pin/5418462025121009/ and a LSU mug rug (as long as my LSU/Saints lovin' husband does not claim it)

(1,0,0)

Hello Craftsters
Im sparks, I live in Tampa Florida with my four children and husband. Christmas is around the corner, feel free to lighten my load. Here are a few wishes, in no particular order.

I would actually love  a M monogrammed embroidered 7 hoop or so. Something like this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/99293794/letter-m-burlap-wall-decor-alphabet-art?ref=sr_gallery_14&ga_search_query=letter+M+wall&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=ZZ&ga_min=0&ga_max=0&ga_search_type=all   A sharp painted M on burlap or maybe a black embroidered M or out-lined M on a tea-dyed linen/muslin in a painted or fabric wrapped black hoop (ooh maybe wrapped with a black velvet ribbon). There is a tutorial for painting it here http://erickabjackson.blogspot.com/2012/10/diy-monogrammed-burlap-door-decor.html

I really like this too http://www.housebyhoff.blogspot.com/2013/05/easy-summer-starfish-wreath.html and while I like the big size, I would like a smaller version to go with my other hoops. So maybe a similar frame in an 5x7 with a twine/rope wrapped 4 inch hoop and then a starfish. Or maybe a sand dollar hoop with a twine wrapped hoop -- (this is why I do not make many things for myself. I start with one idea and it keeps evolving into something else).

I would like one of those wooden saints bracelets. Something like http://www.ebay.com/itm/HOLY-JESUS-FLOWER-WOOD-HEMATITE-MAGNETIC-SHAMBALLA-BRACELET-ST-MARY-ANGEL-/390666092672 or this http://www.catholiccompany.com/wood-saint-bracelet-3-color-beads-p2043517/  . I would like the stained glass images and if possible and in blacks and browns to wear with a prayer bracelet my uncle made. I would like it to include St. Francis of Assisi, Saint Jude, St. Catherine of Alexandria,

My son could use his own ties, http://www.pinterest.com/pin/97812623126458470/ I think black tie (or maybe grey) with a white or grey or black shark depending on the tie background. Trying to think of what he would want.

Oh, one of these http://www.pinterest.com/pin/83527768062569095/ with a heavy bottom, or just the bowl if you have an extra one.

An anklet http://www.pinterest.com/pin/83527768062568895/

Stitch markers: I would like something similar to these http://www.simplynotable.com/2013/bling-your-string/elephantmarkers/

Dryer Balls http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2012/09/save-time-money-and-energy-make-your-own-wool-dryer-balls.html

Sunshine inspired hoop.

I claim sparks for dryer balls. Been wanting  some myself so I will do a bunch! First claim, 0 sent, 0 received.


Hi! I'm Shannon. I'm 29, and I live in Colorado with my husband, two cats and five chickens. I'm an English teacher currently on maternity leave: our first baby is due Oct. 11 and I can't really move around anymore, so I'm lying in bed and wanting to craft!

I have a special love for Orange ragdoll cats, buff Orpington chickens, fat positive/body acceptance culture, fairy tales and myths, Mystery Science Theater 3000, coffee, red wine, sour Candy.. I hate pink, purple and puff paint, I love glitter, metallics, geometric patterns, the colors mint, mustard, red, grey, black and aqua. I like chevrons, stripes and damask, as well as Indian (the country) patterns and aesthetics.



For baby:
Sensory cloth book with textures, colors etc. For a little baby.
Taggy blanket in fairy tale, cats, kawaii food, robots, monsters, chickens

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

**Civil War Era Cape called a Mathilde Mantilla (Think of a Civil War era Poncho.  This is basically what it is)  Here is a link to the pattern http://www.uvm.edu/%7Ehag/godey/images/s5902170.jpg  and here is an example of what it looks like http://www.thegracefullady.com/civilwargowns/ready-mades_silkmantle.htm Measurements will be provided.  Wool blend or Corduroy would be great. Hood is decorative and is not functional. It only uses around 3 yards.  I would also prefer it lined for warmth. It would be great if I could retain the pattern as well for future projects.  (I can sew I just cant figure out how to make it <frown>) without a pre-drafted pattern.  OR If someone with any drafting kills wouldnt mind drafting a pattern to my size I could play around with it and make my own (If I have a pattern to work with)

Primitive Raggedy Ann doll (An example is in my wists) (Kookaloo Star sent me a lovely one but im going to leave this here cause im in love with these and would love a collection of them.)

Victorian caplet.  At least waist length please email for length.

Slat bonnet or corded can provide links if needed.  Any pattern should do as they are all basically the same result.

I would love some handkerchiefs. Monogrammed with my initials would be nice too!! (received more is welcomed)

Victorian slippers.  This pattern is from 1864
http://www.victoriana.com/VictorianShoes/victorianslipperpattern.html

Im looking for special kind of apron for my husband.  He cooks the eggs at breakfast time and is a ninjitsu martial artist.  I would love an embroidered apron that has a ninja/martial artist holding a spatula in each hand and says "Egg Master" underneath.  Fabric and colors are open as long as its durable and holds up.
 

Other Crafts~~~
Bars of handmade soap (the kind that is made from lye).  Lavender, oatmeal, goats milk, citrus are great however any scents are welcome!!  Or soap supplies/kit as I would love to learn how to make my own.  Plain Pre-made soap bars (cold press i think they are called) that are ready to have scents, colors, herbs ect melted and added in are appreciated too as I have young children and am concerned with having lye in the house.  <USA only>    Sad

Room sprays

Im looking for some scented oils.  I would rather these be handmade or from specialty shops and not from stores like joanns or hobby lobby ect.

Hand crafted candles are great too. Prefer either fruit and or spice scented ones or lavender (only floral scented one I like).  Im also interested in the scented candle chunks that you can melt and scent your house with.  I have received some but always appreciate more!!

Whimsey jar are really fun!!

Im loving the moon jars!! Would love to have one!! (babalina sent me two, hubby wants more lol)

Im looking for a serving tray that I can bring snacks from the kitchen to the living room.  Asian or Victorian influence a real plus.  Ive seen some nice ones made from frames (glass removed)

Im also looking for a picture frame.  about 1.5 inches or more wide/thick on the sides.  What I would like is a thin wooden back fitted to it. I dont need the glass for it.  An old vintage frame would be preferred for this.  Im going to use it as a center piece tray for candles (if you can visualize it will lay flat on the table) I can take a pic of the pic in my book if you would like to see my inspiration.

Shower curtain.  Victorian style please!! Please contact for colors.

My 18 year old loves Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before Christmas so anything with him on (appropriate for a guy) would be fantastic

Im looking for a table runner for our new table we recently purchased.  Looking for something, of course Victorian style as well.  Measurements can and will be provided.  Want something rich looking but affordable to make!!  Also looking for new fabric dinner napkins (18").
 
~~Supplies~~

Sewing items~~ Anything related to sewing is welcome!!  Trims, fabric, thread ect.(Gently used too)
Im also interested in any older sewing supplies as well from antiques stores and such (I have a tracing wheel i bought for $4 so they can be affordable).  Patterns (Burda Mag, Modern, Historic and Historic inspired too)!!  I need envelopes with a size 14 & 16 included in the envelope for dresses and tops and a 16 for skirts.  Thanks!!

My husband collects law enforcement patches.  I would love to get a bunch for him for him.  If you live near a prison, jail or other LE facility perhaps they would let you have one???  He gets his this way by asking and they are usually happy to give him one.  My husband loves Asian things as well as LE related (he is a correctional officer) and anything relating to the park service (Smokey the Bear gets double marks lol!!). He is a fan of Bruce Lee and any DVD (he has VHS) movies or any craft with him inspired would be wonderful!!  Or perhaps a stenciled t-shirt of Bruce Lee.  He would be thrilled to receive something just for him (It also continues him to encourage me to swap.  Ya know totally his idea)

Also I would love to be able to get him a hooded jacket with a nin symbol on it!! Stenciled or embroidered (Will send link to a pic if needed).  Does not need to be a crafted hoodie.  Purchased hoodie is perfectly fine!!

I claim frosty772 for a whole heap of washcloths.  Smiley

2nd claim this round

Hello, Im missmoppet from Texas.  Im a wife to a wonderful hubby, mom to a sweet kiddo whos growing so fast hes almost the same size as I am!  I am also mom to a crazy velcrod to my hip pug.  I love spending family time at home playing games, watching movies, talking, reading and just enjoying each other.  I have an addiction to reading, crafting and Pugs.  Colors I like are teal, brown, red, black, grey and white.  My favorite crafts to do are knit and crochet.  But I dabble in other crafting techniques too.  Themes I like are pirates, pugs, harry potter, 1950s, tattoos and video games.  I do not like creepy, adult or baby themes or the colors yellow and orange.  I do not have any allergies however dear hubby does.  They are mostly outside ones with the exception of cats and dust.  However, as long as you dont send anything covered in cat hair or a box of dust bunnies-I can just wash it or wipe the items.  On another note-If yarn is sent or items made with it please make sure it is machine washable and machine dryable.  The same goes with anything with fabric paint-it must stand up to machine washing and machine drying without cracking and peeling.  I have a pug that sheds like crazy and machine washing and machine drying things is required due to pug fur that sticks to everything.  Now, with that being said let the swapping begin!

Crafted items:
-HUGE WISH-dog security vest replica.  Pug size-I can send exact measurements.  I love this one, but right about the word security I would LOVE the red/white resident evil symbol.  It doesnt need to be padded like the one in the picture.
http://www.all-about-pitbull-dog-breed.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=868
-Soft dog harness similar to the one in the link.  Black with the red/white resident evil symbol on the chest area.  None of that fake fur trim though.
http://cdn.gwlittle.com/images/uploads/Puppia-Brown-Snowflake-Dog-Harness_lg.jpg
-custom ceramic dog bowls for my pug.  Must be dish washer safe.  One that says feed me on the inside & one that says water me.   So when they are empty you can read it.  Ha ha!
-Wings for my shoes.  These look easy enough to replicate.  I Would love a pair of white ones and a pair of silver ones.
 http://technabob.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Shwings-Shoe-Wings.jpg
-Batman shirt.   Two of these are on my list a juniors medium and a mens small.  Regular crew neck style shirt.  
http://skreened.com/wellthatsjustsuper/i-m-not-saying-i-m-batman
-resident evil shirt.  Juniors medium.  Crew neck.  Please no fabric paint that cracks/peels.  I need it to be machine washable and machine dryable.
http://skreened.com/designbison/underhanded-corp
-monkey costume like this for my pug.  LOL.  Or if you can find a pattern to make one-Id love the pattern that way I can make him a bunch of monkey suits.  LOL.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Zack-Zoey-Monkey-Dog-Costume-LARGE-/321193603848#ht_945wt_1173
-sewn lap blanket for the couch.  Tan with a pug silhouette.  Doesnt have to be huge or anything-it will just be to put on the couch as a special spot for my pug.  Hence the tan to blend in with his fur.
-tshirt for my pug.  White with the words free hugs on it.
-tshirt for my pug.  White with the Jolly Roger on it.
-ceramic yarn bowl.  Any color or style but a black/teal one would rock my socks.
-A nice little wooden sign for the front door that says Solicitors, ring door bell then run fast.  The dog needs exercise.  Then maybe have a paw print on the sign.  Just please keep the sign looking professional.
 -A burgundy hoodie that looks like a quidditch  team jacket.  Weasly on the back and Rons quidditch number.  Mens size small or Jrs size large.
-quilted mug rugs. You could do it themed in pugs, pirates or tattoos.  I also like the ones that are black with rainbow colored patchwork pieces in the center.  Would like them big enough for a mug of coffee and a little plate.  That way I can have my coffe and donut on it.
-Pug coffee sign. 8x10 size would love it with a teal/chocolate brown color scheme.
http://huntgatherandshop.com/wp-content/uploads/cache/Pug-Fawn-C-102_355.jpg
-harry potter apron http://bakingdom.com/2011/04/harry-potter-gryffindor-apron.html

-superman apron http://img0.etsystatic.com/013/1/6828057/il_570xN.459605464_nf25.jpg
-The grim tea set.  But done in marthas stewart ceramic pens or something similar so they are dishwasher safe. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/530369293588456949/
-tenticle mug.  would love black mug with teal/purple tenticle. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/530369293588297643/

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......

I claim missmoppet for a pug kindle sleeve

3 claims  / 1 in transit / 0 received
Missmoppet for a pug kindle sleeve (claimed)
Artista83 for baby toys (claimed)
Banga for Olliblocks (sent)

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.  

We don't have any allergies.

LIKES:  

Check out my Pinterest Craftster board for lots more ideas
http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/
 (message me about anything on my other pinterest boards)
I am also currently in the Ongoing Holiday List 11 swap so you can always look up my latest wishlist there for more ideas http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427830.msg5102901#msg5102901    

anything funny and/or inappropriate.  I love off the wall humor, feel free to translate that any way you want into anything you make for me

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 out)

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.

Fluffle Puff plush!! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773653997/

I actually got a Lt. Dangle poppet (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427858.0#axzz2gl1HHl3w) and now I just have to have all the Reno 911 characters (including Terry!) as poppets....throwing it out there just in case someone is nuts enough to pick a character and go with it Wink

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

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

Wristlet (in grays and/or darker versions of colors, no pink or orange)
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).   http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/mug-rugs/

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

Here's some pillows I have pinned for inspiration, but I'm totally good with just simple designs too

I claim watsonc7 for a fabric envelope needlebook and a bag of my coveted wine corks

2/0/0

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.  Please do not claim me for anything off of any other board at this time.

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!

I claim Gamemom42 for skull and blue first aid rolls (I've been waiting to tag you!).

4 claims  / 1 in transit / 0 received
Gamemom42 for first aid rolls (claimed)
Missmoppet for pug kindle sleeve (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.  

We don't have any allergies.

LIKES:  
Check out my Pinterest Craftster board for lots more ideas
http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/  
 (message me about anything on my other pinterest boards)
I am also currently in the Ongoing Holiday List 11 swap so you can always look up my latest wishlist there for more ideas http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427830.msg5102901#msg5102901    

anything funny and/or inappropriate.  I love off the wall humor, feel free to translate that any way you want into anything you make for me

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 out)

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.

Fluffle Puff plush!! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773653997/

I actually got a Lt. Dangle poppet (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427858.0#axzz2gl1HHl3w) and now I just have to have all the Reno 911 characters (including Terry!) as poppets....throwing it out there just in case someone is nuts enough to pick a character and go with it Wink

pincushions --  I really love the pincushion-in-an-object idea, here's some ideas http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/pincushions

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

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

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

Wristlet (in grays and/or darker versions of colors, no pink or orange)
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).   http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/mug-rugs/

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 supplies only package:  buttons, charms, beach glass, wine corks, interesting fabric scraps, Xmas fabric scraps.  (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
-a cloth drawstring bag made out of fabric with a music theme

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:
-Decorated headbands (the hard, U-shaped ones, please) for DD.
-Lip balm bandolier 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
-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!)      Grin
-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)

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'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.

2nd claim/0shipped/0rec'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.
Same applies to my Wist http://www.wists.com/kookaloo though it's not as up to date as my Pinterest.


NEW: A shrug in a stretch fabric. Darker colours such as navy,charcoal grey,dark brown. something like this,elbow or 3/4 length sleeves please.http://www.polyvore.com/navy_jersey_shrug/thing?id=32650378
http://www.bangonthetrend.co.uk/grey-tie-front-long-sleeve-shrug-12992-p.asp

NEW: crochet or knit shrug in brown,grey or navy http://www.pinterest.com/pin/253538653995498744/

NEW: Fleece poncho in or cape,more for wearing indoors so I don't need the heating on than for outdoors so colours and patterns don't really matter but no white or pastels and nothing too pointy and sharp edged as they jangle my nerves Wink

NEW: Make-up bag. One of those boxy style ones would be handy with a wipe clean interior.

NEW: Bag like this; http://www.pinterest.com/pin/253538653992059358/

NEW: Bag like this; http://www.pinterest.com/pin/253538653995703650/

NEW: Love this knitted scarf, no the stripes though I prefer a single colour or the colours to fade into one another; http://www.pinterest.com/pin/253538653991959260/

NEW: armwarmers/arm covers; like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/253538653991955847/ NOT fingerless gloves just... how do I put this? shoulderless sleeves maybe *lol* I know you can get stuff like this on Muslim clothing sites but I'd prefer home made.Stretch fabric is a must,patterns and colours don't matter too much so long as they aren't white or pastels.

7.A crochet poncho (I know this is a big wish but you never know when wishes will come true)

8.I would love you forever if you could knit this hat for me,I have the pattern but I can't cable well enough to make it myself. If you could modify it to have a rolled brim or even a nice peak it would be even better.

I mostly crochet,knit and sew but I'm a dabbler so if you wanted to make me a glue gun collage(or something else) it wouldn't be out of place.

I claim Kookaloo_Star for hearts for Yarnia and some stamps.

This is my 2nd claim this round - 2/0/0

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 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.

I have a ton of pins, so feel free to browse them all for inspiration, but these are your best bets if you want to choose something directly from Pinterest:

I Claim Spikefan for a Hunger Games hoodie

2 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.

Going to follow the trend and put in a holiday list format

Big Wish - Something in the way of a graphic design that could be stenciled, representing CthuluBot. Original and cute but not too cute.

hiya craftsters!  i'm jo.  i live in a small town right outside of st. louis, missouri (but in ilinois) with my husband and my 2 awesome kiddos.  georgia is 9 and wiley is 3.  we also have a kitty named qt.  i am in christmas shopping mode right now, so there are many people's wishes on my list.

we have no serious allergies here, but i work very hard to avoid cat hair and cigarette smoke, so those things are not appreciated.

i have set up a few pinterest boards for swapping, and nearly everything listed here can be found on them.  however, you can feel free to peruse any of my "i want" pin boards to find inspiration.  i write my own captions, so PLEASE defer to them for adjustments for colors, style, etc (or ask me?)  "*"s indicate big wishes

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. 

We don't have any allergies.

LIKES: 
Check out my Pinterest Craftster board for lots more ideas
http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/ 
 (message me about anything on my other pinterest boards)
I am also currently in the Ongoing Holiday List 11 swap so you can always look up my latest wishlist there for more ideas http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427830.msg5102901#msg5102901   

anything funny and/or inappropriate.  I love off the wall humor, feel free to translate that any way you want into anything you make for me

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 out)

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.

I claim Watsonc7 for another Minecraft hat as discussed

3/1/0

My name is Michelle and I'm from NC. I am 32 years old and I have a 8 year old daughter. I love to crochet, cross stitch and embroider. I like to dabble in other things but those are my favorites.  I am a lover of almost all things geeky/fandom related and my living room is decorated with all the wonderful geeky things I have received in swaps.

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.  

We don't have any allergies.

LIKES:  
Check out my Pinterest Craftster board for lots more ideas
http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/  
 (message me about anything on my other pinterest boards)
I am also currently in the Ongoing Holiday List 11 swap so you can always look up my latest wishlist there for more ideas http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427830.40#axzz2iEWzkSEi

anything funny and/or inappropriate.  I love off the wall humor, feel free to translate that any way you want into anything you make for me

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 out)

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/

I claim Watsonc7 for a bag of disguises.

This is my 3rd claim this round - 3/2/0

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 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.

I have a ton of pins, so feel free to browse them all for inspiration, but these are your best bets if you want to choose something directly from Pinterest:

For The Boy:
-We are driving to NC for Thanksgiving, so i need some road trip goodies to keep Jude busy! I did a Pinterest search and found tons of ideas: http://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=toddler%20road%20trip%20ideas&rs=ac&len=17 Anything you can make to help me with this goal will be so appreciated!
- A road trip pillow case! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171559067027494915/
- Not sure if you could do part of this project as a medium since it has so many pieces, but I think a magnetic lap board like this would be great! Even if you only made one tray I could add the others! http://www.dirtandboogers.com/2012/10/diy-travel-lap-desk-for-kids/
- Applique, screen printed/stenciled tees size 4T inspired by old rap/rock/punk groups (think Run DMC and The Stooges), poets (Love Neruda, Shakespeare), artists (Basquiat, Picasso), or diagrams and science images Or the word BAZINGA!

I Claim  redstar13 for a long stenciled tee

3 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.

Going to follow the trend and put in a holiday list format

I claim Averia for some blue and white Christmas ornaments and a bacon ornament

3/1/1

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.
                                                                              
I'd rather not be claimed for a surprise.  I like to know what's coming.



Crafts (All of these are Christmas gifts for loved ones so any one of them would just thrill me)


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....  The apron itself should be either gray or black.

A giraffe ... stuffie, necklace, t-shirt (women's tee size S), tote bag, socks, slippers, apron (full wth bib), sculpture, painted box...

A memory game for adults.  I'm thinking wooden pieces that have "couples suggestions".  If you turn over two matching pieces on that turn you get to keep the match and redeem for the suggestion.  I have a whole list of ideas so if you claim for this I can give you that list.

A bow tie or two that goes on any dog collar.  I would love one for everyday in blue or green and one Christmas themed.

A fleece pad with a non slip backing.  My cat likes to sleep on a table but the table is slick topped and her fleece blanket scoots off sometimes and dumps her in the floor.  Any of these colors or a combination: orange, yellow, purple... green is okay but not a solid green (bright green is her "play color" so it's not a good choice for a rest mat).

waterproof lined car garbage bag in either skulls, skeletons, gray and black chevron or stripes, old school Star Wars

waterproof lined car garbage bag in either blue polka dots, blue/white print

waterproof lined car garbage bag in either Dr. Seuss or giraffe print

A beanie in one of these themes:  sugar skull, skull, Boba Fett (I know that's not spelled right, sorry), viking, mohawk, knight
This would be for an adult woman.

A giraffe hat or beanie

Ravenclaw hoodie

Anything off my pinterest board called OPS/OWS Biggest Wishes





Supplies (I prefer to receive crafted items at this time but a mixed claim would be welcome too)

fabric crayons (used or new)

fabric markers (new please)

wooden crochet hooks

bias tape makers

TM patch scraps, embellishments, anything you think would be suited for patches

wooden embroidery hoops, any size

pure wool felt, any size pieces any colors

wooden circles

stickers in any of these themes: space, winter, dinosaurs, Australia, alphabet, numbers, shapes

old wooden picture frames, any size, any finish, glass and backing not needed

buttons.. always

cotton batting

interfacing

Insulbrite

PUL

transfer pens/pencils

fairy tale fabric or embellishments



Extras:

unwanted craft magazines, books, or patterns

gf or df snacks

cat or dog toys

old photos for a journaling project

Starburst Babies (I think these are only available in Australia and that breaks my heart)



Thanks for claiming me!

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.  

We don't have any allergies.

LIKES:  
Check out my Pinterest Craftster board for lots more ideas  (I update my pinterest a lot!)
http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/  
 (message me about anything on my other pinterest boards)
I am also currently in the Ongoing Holiday List 11 swap so you can always look up my latest wishlist there for more ideas http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427830.40#axzz2iEWzkSEi

anything funny and/or inappropriate.  I love off the wall humor, feel free to translate that any way you want into anything you make for me

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 out)

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.

NEW!! Fluffle Puff plush!! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773653997/

I actually got a Lt. Dangle poppet (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427858.0#axzz2gl1HHl3w) and now I just have to have all the Reno 911 characters (including Terry!) as poppets....throwing it out there just in case someone is nuts enough to pick a character and go with it Wink

pincushions --  I really love the pincushion-in-an-object idea, here's some ideas http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/pincushions

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

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

Reusable kitchen towel rolls in full or half size sheets (half sheet preferred), any colors to match with a variety of kitchens (bonus for using three snaps a side and including the center snap roll --I've seen it on other tutorials, it holds the towels in the middle--but I can make myself if needed) 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/

I claim watsonc7 for a fused glass table piece as discussed.  This is my 3rd claim this round.  3,0,2)

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 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 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!
