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 claiming LadybugsAndBumblebees for thread crochet snowflakes that aren't on her list  Wink

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 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.





Sewn:

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

2.A Spa wrap towel kind of like this: http://www.ehow.com/how_5478724_make-bath-towel-wraps.html
brighter is better when it comes to colour and please,no white! I'm a size 2x-3x and 5'5'' tall.

http://img3.etsystatic.com/il_570xN.293449895.jpg

http://img.loveitsomuch.com/uploads/201209/23/fl/flower%20fleece%20headband%20earwarmers%20pearls-t14424.jpg
I don't always like to wear a hat but I don't want my ears to freeze off My waterproof coat is hot pink so something to match or contrast with that would be nice.

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.
  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/peace-sign-hat

9. Knit or crochet slippers/booties.I'm a Eu41 which I think is a US10 or 10.5 seriously anything goes for colours with these,use up your scraps. I love these crossover strap ones but again,anything goes

I would love some arty craft related things (any style,any medium) to hang on my walls like collages of sewing supplies,a vintage Singer sewing machine(I have a handcrank Singer from 1908) crochet or knitting related. 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.

15.Crafty charm bracelet,prefer silver/pewter or copper/bronze coloured charms or a love and peace charm bracelet.
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/253538653991911448/

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:

- Lace, the older the better
- Old picture books
- Michael Moore, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, or Freshcut fabric, even your scraps are fine! Also any other pretty printed fabrics in these styles, but not necessarily designer.

- Unusual/fun rubber stamps in zetti, victorian, retro, steampunk or background patterns (I'd love a harlequin print)
- Rubber for stamp carving (not eraser type)
- any issues of Crap Hound! Even photocopies of your issues work for me! http://www.boingboing.net/2005/07/24/crap-hound-seminal-c.html
- Vintage ephemera, old sewing patterns, old paper doilies and hankies, text pages from old books, old foreign language text (think crumbly old, not 80's old  )

Extras:
- I'd love items inspired by anything I've Pinned, but please PM me in case it's something I'm making! I also have an Amazon wishlist here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/38KGTSPJ8DPOU
and many etsy faves here: http://www.etsy.com/people/jojobeandesigns
Or feel free to check my blog for ideas!
- Really Spicy Hot Sauce from your area for the hubs. He likes the ones that obliterate taste buds for days.
- Your favorite real food recipe (we generally avoid mixes and processed add ins)

Thank you in advance for choosing me!

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.

5 claims  / 3 in transit / 1 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. 

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.

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, 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) http://pinterest.com/pin/248049891949374970/

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

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

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 would also likes some holiday themed pillow covers  (Valentine, Christmas, Easter mostly)
Here's some pillows I have pinned for inspiration, but I'm totally good with just simple designs too
http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/sew-it-pillows/

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
http://blog.thecelebrationshoppe.com/2012/04/03/diy-bar-stool-chair-covers/

I claim spikefan for bleached Hunger Games shirt (and maybe the Dr Who stamped pieces, if I don't mess up on the few disks I have...)

6 claims  / 0 in transit / 4 received
Spikefan for hunger games shirt (claimed)
Jo_mama for felt superhero masks (claimed)
Gamemom42 for first aid rolls (received)
Missmoppet for pug kindle sleeve (received)
Artista83 for baby toys (received)
Banga for Olliblocks (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.  

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/
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/

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

Personalized Journals: medium sized (not crazy large notebooks), quality thick unlined paper for gluing/painting/crafting on, pockets a plus (I can put some in later if needed)
1.  Art journal--- I'd really like you to art up the cover of the notebook and/or the first page totally in your style, include your username and any info about your art style/loves/info that you want.  I also would like the second page to include a printout (or handwritten) of this 30 day journal challenge http://pamperpusscat.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-30-day-art-journal.html to get me started.  
2.  Craftster journal --- decorated in craftster style, what a craftster book would look like to you.  I'll use this to keep track of my swaps and pics

I'd also love an art doll made by you...I really like the clay or paper mβchι ones, sculptures and/or functional (lil containers).  I really like odd and funny, but NOT  dark and creepy.  Here's some inspiration on my pinterest http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/art-dolls/

Oh Em Gee...a recycled crochet bag made out of 30 plastic grocery bags http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773696492/ (I would take any amount of these in any grocery bag colors)

::::SUPPLIES:::::  .  I've gotten some awesome supplies lately so now I would like to request no supply-only claims please.  I love love love supplies but with Christmas around the corner I would rather handmade items, or a combo of handmade and supplies.  THANKS!

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:

Crafted stuff:
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! Love this one too! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/68891069272554550/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/68891069271142979/
- Arts and craft apron/smocks with  sleeves. Here are some cute ideas: http://tinkerlab.com/15-apron-ideas-for-kids/
- Long sleeved tees/cardis/sweaters modified with elbow patches, cool phrases, in size 4T (I am ok with repurposed as long as the original shirt is in excellent condition). You can take a look at this board for some style ideas: http://pinterest.com/jojobean26/future-judems/
- A size 4T hoodie with a big applique like these: https://www.etsy.com/shop/internaht?ref=pr_faveshops or this http://pinterest.com/pin/84864774200114981/
- A sewn bunny is washable fabric. Inspiration here, but it need not have clothing!  https://www.etsy.com/listing/152624636/natural-canvas-stuffed-doll-bunny-softie?ref=shop_home_active
- A letter J plate inspired by these: http://www.rosannainc.com/plates-platters/now-i-know-my-abcs-plate-mug/
- Cool wall art inspired by my kiddo pins. I have soo many! http://pinterest.com/jojobean26/jude-s-new-room/
- Placemats with the place settings stitched on: http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2012/05/place-setting-placemat-diy.html These are lace, but solid color or patterned fabric works better for messy boys! Would need to be about 20 inches by 15 inches.
- Love this face! Made with wood or laminated pieces or vinyl or something to make it sturdy and explore emotions! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/47147127322433144/
- A plastic painted wild animal planter for his room! Like an elephant, tiger, giraffe, lion, hippo… https://www.etsy.com/listing/98721838/neon-elephant-planter-true-blue-great?utm_campaign=Share&share_id=88978&utm_medium=PageTools&hmac=3baf867e9195766f9fe84728274c2ac70648694b&utm_source=Pinterest

- A book page pumpkin or apple - http://thehiddenlist.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/apple-book590tsl060810.jpg
- Needle felted drops.   I am now obsessed after finding this shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/124563406/green-leaf-like-drop-miniature-ladybug?ref=shop_home_active I want a bunch! One like this leaf and ladybug, one for every holiday… Sooo cute!
- Hand-carved rubber stamps, funky florals, patterns, cool quirky stuff! For ideas: https://www.etsy.com/shop/creatiate

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/40532465367985921/

http://www.pier1.com/Dana-Slipcover---Brown-Geometric/2663705,default,pd.html?utm_source=Google&utm_medium=PLA&utm_campaign=google_pla&utm_content=2663705&s_cid=pla0000001&kpid=2663705
NEW! Cloth napkins! We use tons of them:) Again, any of the colors inspired by the colors linked above would rock! Also, holiday napkins for Halloween or Christmas would be fun! http://heatherbailey.typepad.com/heather_bailey/2010/11/d.html

Supplies:
- Make me a craft kit! What craft do you adore? I love trying new things, so a little project kit with materials and instructions to make one little thing would rock!  Quilling, jewelry arts, tatting…
- Metallic sharpies
- Screen for silkscreen printing
- Funky shaped picture frames for me to paint and embellish
- Lace, the older the better
- Old picture books
- Michael Moore, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, or Freshcut fabric, even your scraps are fine! Also any other pretty printed fabrics in these styles, but not necessarily designer.
- ink pads –pigment ink,  archival and acid free, but I’m super partial to Stampin’ Up, Tsukineko and Tim Holtz (I have lots of metallics, purple, pink, brick, black, brown already)
- Unusual/fun rubber stamps in zetti, victorian, retro, steampunk or background patterns (I'd love a harlequin print)
- Rubber for stamp carving (not eraser type)
- any issues of Crap Hound! Even photocopies of your issues work for me! http://www.boingboing.net/2005/07/24/crap-hound-seminal-c.html
- Vintage ephemera, old sewing patterns, old paper doilies and hankies, text pages from old books, old foreign language text (think crumbly old, not 80's old  )

Extras:
- I'd love items inspired by anything I've Pinned, but please PM me in case it's something I'm making! I also have an Amazon wishlist here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/38KGTSPJ8DPOU
and many etsy faves here: http://www.etsy.com/people/jojobeandesigns
Or feel free to check my blog for ideas!
- Really Spicy Hot Sauce from your area for the hubs. He likes the ones that obliterate taste buds for days.
- Your favorite real food recipe (we generally avoid mixes and processed add ins)

Thank you in advance for choosing me!
