I claim Averia for a bed caddy and an extra.

5/3/1
myloveasdeep for a pearl and leather necklace (in transit)
texscrapper for a crosstitched pincushion (received acc. to USPS)
Grab a coffee for a handpainted silk scarf (in transit)
Watsonc7 for a sewing kit

Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband Uwe and two sweet little daughters Lea (2 years) and Hanna (3 months).  I have mild allergies (dogs, cats) and don't like cigarette/cigar smoke. Our house is pet- and smoke-free.

My favourite colours are cream & taupe (sand, milk, stone, wool... think nature), dark teal, deep purple, dark brown, black, and pink. I use those colours for the kids as well, plus lots of bright light green. I like plain fabrics, or patterns like leaves and blossoms; polka dot, circles, stripes. We have decorated our apartment mostly in light colours (white, cream, wood) so colourful stuff is always welcome. Repurposed and/or used is always fine. I usually prefer cotton or other natural fibers over acrylics.  Also I'd be happy to receive supply only-claims.

I've set up a board on Pinterest for this swap, links to (almost) all handmade items (or at least pictures) from my list should be here: http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/craftster-ongoing-wish-swap/
You're welcome to check out the other boards (there are a lot), especially all of the Naehen (sewing) boards, want, Farben (colours) and fabric love for what I like, Kinderkram, Baby Stuff...
Not recommended are the following boards: Uwe, things to do, zum erstmal gucken, been there done that.

O Labyrinth onesie - the babe with the power (I really love the design from thinkgeek) http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/e846/?srp=6 or similar, or shirt
O speaking of Labyrinth: Anything Jareth for me... crochet, knit, Fimo, sewn, embroidered, whatever... or a shirt with Jareth, I love a round, wide neckline and 3/4 arm length...

I claim anna.wahnsinn for a crochet baby blanket

2/0/0

1/0/0

ABOUT ME:
I am 26 years old, and I live near St. Louis, MO. I have a 2 year old daughter, and a boyfriend of 6 years. I go to school full time for Graphic Design with one semester left. I am very crafty and don't stick to a particular method, so it's hard to pinpoint my expertise. I am an intermediate crocheter, I paint, draw, sculpt, assemble, yada, yada. I am always looking for sewed items, as that's the one crafting method I haven't tried yet.

Likes:
I like chevron, stripes, india inspired designs, bold shapes, typography, and antiqued designs/styles. (I have an album.)
I’m a huge fan of leather (or pleather) and canvas. (together or apart)
I like bold, dark, jewel, and fall tones. My favorite color is mustard yellow.
Alien anything! (the little green guys, not the movies)
Lavender, Hippy, and Coffee scents
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

WISHLIST:
SEWING:
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.
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.

Travel Trashbag for my car (back of the seat one) (black/tan/turquoise)

-a Christmas tree skirt.  There are examples on this board, but Im pretty open.  Id rather no specific Christmasy prints (like Santa or Jesus), but Christmas colors and Winter are fine.  If there were many fabrics, mixing Christmas prints in is fine.

I claim JillHogan for a car trash bag and lanyard .

6 claims  / 0 in transit / 3 received
JillHogan for car trash bag and lanyard (claimed)
Breegy for 2 draft blockers and some bath disks (received)
Anna.wahnsinn for fabrics (sent)
JillHogan for a few reuseable sandwich bags and small journals (received)
Anna.wahnsinn for contoured burp cloths (received)
Averia for tees for her kids (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.  

LIKES:  
EVERYTHING in my Craftster Pinterest is game (I update my pinterest a lot!)
http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/  


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, creatures (I'm not a crazy collector of any of them, I just find myself checking out that kind of stuff out)

I can't describe my style very well, basically love a good mix of modern and natural rustic.  I have bright modern print curtains and also muted deep dirty red and yellow color paintings, stone and metal sculptures/art in my LR.  I like color but not psychedelic colors or patterns.  I like natural art, wood stones, branches, etc.  I like steampunk-y anything.  Interesting and different sculptures/art.

DISLIKES:  
crochet stuff (unless its a specific request, I'm warming up to it), cross-stitch (though I LOVE embroidery), tie-dye, fluorescents, and I'm not a huge fan of blue jean material, 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 so I'd love to get her one made with some of her favorite specifics: (triple bonus, but not required!)
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 from the wind

I claim Watsonc7 for that stale bread embroidery

6/3/2
myloveasdeep for a pearl and leather necklace (in transit)
texscrapper for a crosstitched pincushion (received acc. to USPS)
Grab a coffee for a handpainted silk scarf (received)
Watsonc7 for a sewing kit and a little extra (pending, late as of today)
Averia for a bed caddy and a little extra (pending)

Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband Uwe and two sweet little daughters Lea (2 years) and Hanna (3 months).  I have mild allergies (dogs, cats) and don't like cigarette/cigar smoke. Our house is pet- and smoke-free.

My favourite colours are dark teal, deep purple, dark brown, black, cream & taupe (sand, milk, stone, wool... think nature), and pink. (For clothes for myself, I prefer the cooler, softer shades). I use those colours for the kids as well, plus lots of bright light green, and navy. I like plain fabrics, or patterns like leaves and blossoms; polka dot, circles, stripes (no chevron). We have decorated our apartment mostly in light colours (white, cream, wood) so colourful stuff is always welcome. I love colours, I'm just not wearing that many... Repurposed and/or used is always fine. I usually prefer cotton or other natural fibers over acrylics.  Also I'd be happy to receive supply only-claims.

I've set up a board on Pinterest for this swap, links to (almost) all handmade items (or at least pictures) from my list should be here: http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/craftster-ongoing-wish-swap/

I claim anna.wahnsinn for some recipe cards and miscellaneous supplies (not sure what yet...I've got lots of stuff on your list hanging around!)

4th claim, 2 received (according to usps); 1 to be sent

Im Jill, from Boston, MA.
Color doesnt scare me, and I have no allergies.
Id prefer no supply-only claims because Im in process of clearing out my craft room.  (That being said, if thats what you want to claim me for, go for it, those are the rules.  Ill live )



Knit/Crochet
-a vintage snood, like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/53902526763705373/
(the ribbon is not necessary; with or without is fine.  I have a crazy thick amount of medium-length hair)

-gloves like this (I love cameos)
https://www.etsy.com/listing/123120608/red-and-black-gothic-fingerless-gloves?ref=favs_view_8

-a Christmas tree skirt.  There are examples on this board, but Im pretty open.  Id rather no specific Christmasy prints (like Santa or Jesus), but Christmas colors and Winter are fine.  If there were many fabrics, mixing Christmas prints in is fine.
http://www.pinterest.com/jill_hogan/christmas-decorations/

-fabric bowls, any size, girly colors; these are some examples, but Im not picky
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/53902526763857882/ http://www.pinterest.com/pin/53902526763857875/

-loose leaf tea

-melted plastic bowl, the army guys or animals or anything really https://www.google.com/search?q=melted+plastic+bowls&espv=210&es_sm=91&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=XKR9UrOlCc6ekQe-x4HADQ&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAQ&biw=1268&bih=679#es_sm=91&espv=210&q=melted+army+plastic+bowls&tbm=isch)

I claim spikefan for a My Little Pony playmat  (1,0,0)

Hi.  I am Brenda from Southern California.  I work as an IBI assistant in a special education autistic preschool class.  I love every minute of it!  I just celebrated my 8th wedding anniversary in September.  I have a 14 year old stepdaughter who we have full time.  She is a freshman in high school this year. I do not have any children of my own but have my two nephews and my best friend's 4 children who are all a huge part of my life. We also have 2 cats and a dog.

We have no allergies.

I am pretty open to anything except extreme gore, religious items, or food with faces (not vegetarian, just don't prefer a cake with a smiley face LOL)

ABOUT ME:
I am 26 years old, and I live near St. Louis, MO. I have a 2 year old daughter, and a boyfriend of 6 years. I go to school full time for Graphic Design with one semester 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 color is mustard yellow.
Alien anything! (the little green guys, not the movies)
Lavender, Hippy, and Coffee scents
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 obsessions/fandoms are ALWAYS welcome: Aliens(the little green guys), Red Riding Hood, Star Wars, 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
