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


Loves/Likes:
My favorite color is tiffany blue / robins egg blue minty green/blue/aqua. Im not a fan of sky blue though, even though it is similar to robins egg blue.

In jewelry I prefer silver over gold color.   I like longer necklaces (22" to 24")   I like shiny and sparkley things. I love birds particularly chubby song birds and chickens (prefer hens to roosters).  But I also love crows and ravens.

I also love period pieces (like Pride and Prejudice, Downton Abbey), fantasy art, reading, rainy days, mushrooms, music.  I like to knit and crochet. I love gaming like World of Warcraft.

Dislikes:
strong scents and cigarette smoke. Politics.

I claim gamemom42 for some crocheted and sewn hearts as well as some buttons.
I claim Avesthel for a supply package (scrabble tiles, sea glass, and metal charms for jewelry making)
(2/1/1)

  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 20, 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 am also in the 'Ongoing Gift Swap' where there are ideas for items I would like for my family/friends/co-workers.

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.

BIG HUGE REALLY WANTED WISH FOR ME:
A piece of lace from my wedding dress used in a piece of jewelry.  I was thinking of some sort of resin or glass way to preserve it, maybe in a pendant?  In a brooch would be great too. (We were made to clean out our belongings from the place we rent, and had nowhere to keep my wedding dress.  I cut off two flowers from it for my DDs, for when they get married, and a piece for me for what I'm asking for in this swap.)

WISHES FOR ME:
-a full apron (NOT the kind that ties just around your waist)
-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!)
-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
-ruffle scarves (I have a purple one and a black/red one already) (I like the delicate ones...I may have one on my pinterest...)
-a water bottle holder (Mine measures 10 1/2 inches around, and seven inches high.  A short strap for carrying would be great.)  

WISHES FOR MY HUSBAND:
-Anything bug related...he's an exterminator     Smiley  (Just nothing with spiders or praying manitses on them...he doesn't like them.)
-Change holder that can be put in his car and also one for his work truck...I have no idea how this would work...any ideas?  (It would have to be something that didn't spill while driving.) (See below for colors & theme ideas.)
-A shirt in size 4-5x that says:  Real Men Marry Teachers
-Crocheted or knitted minion (from the movie 'Despicable Me')
-Some sort of garbage bag for his work truck and for his car (For his car, a navy blue color would be great, for his work truck, something with a bug theme would be great.)

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.
-Anything fox, nautical, tennis, PREPPY themed for DS.

WISHES FOR FRIENDS:
-Purple pillowcases
-Traffic-light green pillowcases (Yes, that is really her favorite color!)
-Anything Disney princess that an adult could use (i.e.-totes, decorated pens, etc...)
-A Beeker (from the Muppets) hoopla
-A hoopla of the flag of the Dominican Republic
-Angel themed items

WISHES FOR CO-WORKERS, DD's TEACHERS, ETC...:  (I need multiples of these but don't expect one claim to make them all-unless you want to!  Wink)
-Keyring chapstick cozies
-Keyring macaroon style purses (those little round ones)
-Anything that is similar that would be good to give to a group of people-as listed above) that you could think of (Please PM me first with your idea.)

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)
-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)

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 claim LadybugsandBumblebees for supplies and possibly a classroom surprise.
2nd claim, 0 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.) I would also prefer to not receive leather.
Things I would super love are in red.



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 pillow person, like this adorable guy:
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/53902526763943750/


Embroidery
Here is a link to some examples of what I like, but theyre just inspiration
http://www.pinterest.com/jill_hogan/i-love-embroidery/

-a bath towel wrap http://www.ehow.com/how_5478724_make-bath-towel-wraps.html (PM for measurements...it would need to be plus-sized, made from a bath sheet)

-a cowl or scarf made of neckties, like this:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/83155072/ooak-triple-ruffle-snap-on-necktie-scarf?ref=sr_gallery_17&ga_search_query=necktie+scarf&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all&ga_facet=necktie+scarf or https://www.etsy.com/listing/69762971/made-to-order-cream-and-beige-stripe?ref=pr_faveitems or https://www.etsy.com/shop/headnortail?ref=l2-shop-info-name

-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/

Miscellaneous
-a bowl made from yarn http://www.pinterest.com/pin/53902526759704765/

-a posable, cute doll for the Little Visitor swap...can also be an animal, but would like something posable (so probably not a stuffie)

-hair fascinators...not too humungous, but noticeable

-a soap dish (or two) that drains away the liquid (like the wooden kind, but Im sure there are other ways you could do it)

-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)

-depictions of my cats, any medium.  I can send pictures.  I have two.  Theyre both cute, and Im not the only one who says so Smiley

-(Christmas) tree ornaments (see themes from above)
http://www.pinterest.com/jill_hogan/christmas-decorations/

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/99501472991172743/

-sponge holder from repurposed silverware
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/53902526763926641/

I claim gamemom42 for some crocheted and sewn hearts as well as some buttons.
I claim Avesthel for a supply package (scrabble tiles, sea glass, and metal charms for jewelry making).
I claim Avesthel again for a Harry Potter themed scarf (the maroon and gold one).
(3/0/0)

  Cheesy 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 20, 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 am also in the 'Ongoing Gift Swap' where there are ideas for items I would like for my family/friends/co-workers.

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.

BIG HUGE REALLY WANTED WISH FOR ME:
A piece of lace from my wedding dress used in a piece of jewelry.  I was thinking of some sort of resin or glass way to preserve it, maybe in a pendant?  In a brooch would be great too. (We were made to clean out our belongings from the place we rent, and had nowhere to keep my wedding dress.  I cut off two flowers from it for my DDs, for when they get married, and a piece for me for what I'm asking for in this swap.)

WISHES FOR ME:
-a full apron (NOT the kind that ties just around your waist)
-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!)
-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
-ruffle scarves (I have a purple one and a black/red one already) (I like the delicate ones...I may have one on my pinterest...)

WISHES FOR MY HUSBAND:
-Anything bug related...he's an exterminator      Smiley(Just nothing with spiders or praying manitses on them...he doesn't like them.)
-Change holder that can be put in his car and also one for his work truck...I have no idea how this would work...any ideas?  (It would have to be something that didn't spill while driving.) (See below for colors & theme ideas.)
-A shirt in size 4-5x that says:  Real Men Marry Teachers
-Crocheted or knitted minion (from the movie 'Despicable Me')
-Some sort of garbage bag for his work truck and for his car (For his car, a navy blue color would be great, for his work truck, something with a bug theme would be great.)

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 fox, nautical, tennis, PREPPY themed for DS.
-HUGE WISH FOR MY DDs:  We've decided to have a Minecraft themed birthday party for each of them, and could use any and all Minecraft themed items.  Some examples:  birthday cards (one for each DD-turning 10 and turning 12), themed t-shirts (size 10/12, and size adult women's medium), banner, goodie bags, goodie bag items (I received perler bead necklaces in another swap.), etc...

WISHES FOR FRIENDS:
-Purple pillowcases
-Traffic-light green pillowcases (Yes, that is really her favorite color!)
-Anything Disney princess that an adult could use (i.e.-totes, decorated pens, etc...)
-A Beeker (from the Muppets) hoopla


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)
-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)

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 claim rscowtown for flowers from her crochet wishlist.

This is my first claim in an OWS (excited!) 1/0/0


Hi, I'm Ruby Copperhead from Germany, single mom of two boys age 10 and 13. We love swaps!

Allergies relevant to crafts are scent, cats (but only if they sleep in your stash), and pollen if it's a very early spring where you live.

I've tried to list mainly things that don't have a lot of weight or bulk for better shipping. I can add the stuffing to anything you send so you can send it flat. If you're a stone mason or a black smith and have reasonable shipping rates to my place, feel free to work in your preferred materials Wink
Generally, even if it's not on your list, I'll always love to receive an item that represents your favourite technique or that you were very happy making.


Our favourite themes:
Sailor Moon, Kamen Rider (Kabuto, Blade, OOO or Den-O), Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Discworld, DS9, Star Wars,  Pokemon, Lazy Town, Wreck-it Ralph, Skulduggery Pleasant and Animals Crossing.
I also like Japan, Scandinavia and the UK as general themes. The kids asked me to emphasize on the Pokmon theme again Wink


Favourite colors:
clear, bright colors, like rainbow colors, the colors of Lego blocks, or jewel tones. I really like green. If you make something for our kitchen, it has a magical forest theme and the colors are green, brown, blue and orange. If you're making something wearable for us, please ask for measurements or sizes.


Dislikes:
Pink, pastel, polka dots, fabrics that are very "busy", frills. Artificially scented anything (see allergies).

My wishlist
(big wished bolded, I'll try to find more links to add to it)

fabric
- a wallet that can hold many cards, like this or this

other

- Anything sonic screwdriver
- tree of life pendant
- cute USB drive cozies
- pretty things from fused glass
- for my crafty niece and nephew: a LED project kit (English instructions are okay, I can translate them)

I am claiming A2K for felt brooches. This is my first claim.

Hello Guys,

I am happy to join again! My name is Eszter from Hungary - Europe. I'm 34 years old (bah!), living with my husband and my 2.5 years old son. In the last few years I've been working from home, and it' started to go bigger from this year. I am working on my felt craft shop, and I'm administering a huuuge company's marketing team's actiivities. I am still working from home, but I am caring for my son too, it's starting to be crazy Smiley But you know, if we have big plans... :-)
This year, we are trying to sell our flat, and move to a big house. We are looking for the houses right now, and there will be a lot of preparations, but that is our big wish. I have some asks on my wish list related to a new house, but beacuse of the future moving, I'll try to collect things what I am sure, I'll use! And of course, I am looking for gifts for others. My plan is to have a full handmade Christmas!
I know there are a lot of stuff on my list, which is too big for international mailings, but I would like to keep everything in one list. If you would like to make some personal swaps (e.g. you are willing to send me a bigger thing from my list, if I'll make this or that for you!), just let me know, I am open for everything! Check my things at my shop, especially if you are a huge fan of felt ornaments and jewelries! Smiley
As I see your list, I'll be your personal wire jewelry/ornament maker this year, so fill your lists with those wishes! Smiley

Extras
Most of you are collecting inchies, I will start a bigger thing: I would like to make a huge wall art with things people made specially for me. I would like to ask you to create something for me in 12 x 12 cm (~4.72" x 4.72"). It can be a fabric thing, a crocheted/knitted square, a drawing, painting, any art page... anything what you love to make. If it's possible, it would be awesome, if it reminds me to your place (state or town, or country... whatever!) - I'll start it now, so I'll put here some examples, when I'll receive any! Smiley
Board games - I am a big collector of board/card games. If you have something you don't like, or won't use, I would be happy to get it!


Thanks for claiming me!
