I claim underthemountain for cloth reusable grocery bags (1,0,0)

Hi! I'm Summer from Texas. I am mom to 3 amazing boys 14, 9, & 9. 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.

I like clean classic lines and I would describe my style as country chic. My favorite color is brown, and I love the "hot" accent colors that are mixed with it to give it some pop - pinks, blues/turquoise, and reds.


Onto the list!

I claim texscrapper for poly clay buttons due March 20

1/0/0

Hi! My name is Megan and I live in the middle of Indiana, USA. I am married, and live with my husband, dog, 3 cats, horse, llama and chickens.

Likes: blues, greens, purples, browns, yellows, blue/brown combo, horses (especially Haflingers). I prefer useful items, more plain, simple designs and not cutesy childish designs. I love leaf, tree,owl, bird themes and peacocks. Our wedding was peacock themed with bright blue and kelly green colors (I love blue, he loves green - it really fit). I love sunflowers and daffodils.  Any scents or flavors are okay except licorice or coffee.

Dislikes: Floral, child/cutesy designs (if unsure, just PM me), neon and pastel colors. Please no earrings

Allergins: None, but please nothing that smells like cigarette smoke.

Crafted:

Sewn:


- Pot holders
- Firewood carrier similar to this that would be awesome!: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/273664114828390509/
- Christmas tree skirt in bright traditional holiday colors (red, or red/green/white) Needs to be machine Washable
- Throw pillows (I can add stuffing or an insert if you want to cut down on postage and cost) (pillows I like, but feel free to go with any of my themes: https://www.etsy.com/listing/163911223/quilted-throw-pillowbird-print?ref=sr_gallery_9&ga_search_query=throw+pillow+birds&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=2&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery, https://www.etsy.com/listing/160394555/bird-linen-pillow-throw-pillow-cover-car?ref=sr_gallery_20&ga_search_query=throw+pillow+birds&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=2&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery)

-Lap "quilt" for spinning - Needs to be cotton. This can be as simple as sewing to pieces of fabric together and stitching a couple of lines for quiliting. I really don't need batting.  (to give you an idea of how it will be used: http://www.flickr.com/photos/picperfic/7222796230/)
-Fabric baskets - for storing fiber, bobbins, and other odds and ends.

Knit or Crochet:

-Hard cover journal - will be used for keeping track of yarn/fiber projects
-Hooplas - Themes: peacocks, leaves, birds, owls, horses, barn, cats, flowers (especially daffodils or sunflowers), trees/woods (also doesn't have to be embroidery - can be anything in a hoop)
-Strawberry stones - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/209980401346566898/

I am claiming TerraBella01 for "something made in her horse's likeness", and some pendants.
This is my 1st claim this round.

My name is Eszter from Hungary - Europe. I'm 34 years old, 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 company's marketing team's activities. 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

It can be a fabric thing, a crocheted/knitted square, a drawing, painting, any art page... anything what you love to make.

I claim Grab a coffee for supplies

1st claim, 0 in transit, 0 received

Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband Uwe and two sweet little daughters Lea (2.5 years) and Hanna (6 months).  I don't like cigarette/cigar smoke, but no allergies to speak of. Our house is pet- and smoke-free.

Usually I like the things I pin as are (often except for colour, see descriptions), but I'd love to receive things "inspired by", as well.

My favourite colours are black, dark teal, deep purple, dark brown, cream & taupe (sand, milk, stone, wool... think nature), 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/ Big wishes right now are here, but I have lots of things I want on other Pinterest boards, so if you find something there...

O simple cute ladybug or sparrow stamp
O yarn bowl - this one http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494249555/ is my favourite so far (the colour, the little stars!), but I'd love one made from a wooden bowl too. Or even from a large plastic cup, as long as it's fun to look at and doesn't topple over or hop around the room
O pen loops (bright colours or black, brown... no white or grey please) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494401099/
O anything Labyrinth for me... crochet, knit, Fimo, sewn, embroidered, whatever, useful or just pretty... or a Labyrinth shirt! I love a round, wide neckline and 3/4 sleeves (or long)... preferably in black and white
O Calvin & Hobbes - again anything pretty and/or useful, but I'd really love a shirt for myself!
O something Care Bears! But from the original series please, not the bobbleheaded new ones.
O Rickroll shirt for me - like this, or completely different... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494328944/ I love a round, wide neckline and 3/4 sleeves (or long)... size 24/26
O something "Where the Wild Things Are"... loved by me and my daughter!
O simple-ish recipe cards (15x20cm / 6x8in) and one or two matching dividers - or maybe even colourful like this design:  http://heartmadeblog.com/free-download-bunting-flags-recipe-cards/ - or these are so cute http://www.mygrafico.com/freebies/free-summer-recipe-card-printables/prod_8703.html!


Supplies (scraps or used is fine!)

O fabric!
O zippers & magnetic closures for purses
O thread: my favourites are Gtermann and Coats; I use cotton, polyester or blends
O twill tape

O pretty (glittery or pearly) papers or cardstock (at least 12x18cm / 5x8in) in teal, cream, turquoise, black or brown (to be used as special planner pages/dividers)
O KamSnaps
O no sew snaps (refills; no tools needed) (Prym)
O very small patches (esp. ladybugs) for darning
O seed beads 11/0, 15/0, delicas
O beading supplies, especially magnetic clasps
O post-its (square or rectangular, no funny shapes), all colours
O stamps, ink pads
O embroidery hoops (smaller is better)
O a few chap stick containers (or one or two chocolatey or beeswax ones?)
O really tiny jars/bottles/containers/cardboard boxes (no such thing as too small)
O tea tins / tea caddies
O anything really from these: care bears, forever friends, curious george, very hungry caterpillar, barbapapa, moomins

I claim anna-wahnsinn for some recipe cards inspired from her pinterest due March 22

2/0/0

Hi! My name is Megan and I live in the middle of Indiana, USA. I am married, and live with my husband, dog, 3 cats, horse, llama and chickens.

Likes: blues, greens, purples, browns, yellows, blue/brown combo, horses (especially Haflingers). I prefer useful items, more plain, simple designs and not cutesy childish designs. I love leaf, tree,owl, bird themes and peacocks. Our wedding was peacock themed with bright blue and kelly green colors (I love blue, he loves green - it really fit). I love sunflowers and daffodils.  Any scents or flavors are okay except licorice or coffee.

Dislikes: Floral, child/cutesy designs (if unsure, just PM me), neon and pastel colors. Please no earrings

Allergins: None, but please nothing that smells like cigarette smoke.

Crafted:

Sewn:


- Pot holders
- Firewood carrier similar to this that would be awesome!: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/273664114828390509/
- Christmas tree skirt in bright traditional holiday colors (red, or red/green/white) Needs to be machine Washable
- Throw pillows (I can add stuffing or an insert if you want to cut down on postage and cost) (pillows I like, but feel free to go with any of my themes: https://www.etsy.com/listing/163911223/quilted-throw-pillowbird-print?ref=sr_gallery_9&ga_search_query=throw+pillow+birds&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=2&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery, https://www.etsy.com/listing/160394555/bird-linen-pillow-throw-pillow-cover-car?ref=sr_gallery_20&ga_search_query=throw+pillow+birds&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=2&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery)
- Wall art (might start a hoopla area)
- Wallet with wristlet strap (something like this: https://www.etsy.com/listing/175893296/iphone-wallet-smart-phone-case-handmade?ref=shop_home_active_20)
- Applique or quilted tea towels (I won't use them if they're embroidered for fear of ruining them)
-4 placemats - leaf/tree/green/nature themed
-8 placemats brown/orange/red colored
-8 placemats traditional Christmas colors (red/gree/white) (my tablecloth is red)
-8 Reusable napkins in any of the placemat colors or themes
-Door draft stoppers - I have the tubes, so just need the casing. can use a few of these (will PM you tube size if you claim) (http://sassybagsandrags.blogspot.com/2012/09/diy-double-sided-door-draft-stopper.html)
-Lap "quilt" for spinning - Needs to be cotton. This can be as simple as sewing to pieces of fabric together and stitching a couple of lines for quiliting. I really don't need batting.  (to give you an idea of how it will be used: http://www.flickr.com/photos/picperfic/7222796230/)
-Fabric baskets - for storing fiber, bobbins, and other odds and ends.

Knit or Crochet:

- knit wool socks in fun colors (shoe size USA ~9 women)

Misc:

- Recipe binder/book preferably with tabs - this will be for prepping type recipes so feel free to include any recipes you think might fit.

-garden stakes/labels (broccoli, carrots, spinach, salad greens, green beans, squash, melon, garlic, not sure what else I'm growing this year)
-something made in my horse's likeness (eg clay model, needle felted thing, hoopla, whatever you like) -I can send pics if you choose this
-Hard cover journal - will be used for keeping track of yarn/fiber projects
-Hooplas - Themes: peacocks, leaves, birds, owls, horses, barn, cats, flowers (especially daffodils or sunflowers), trees/woods (also doesn't have to be embroidery - can be anything in a hoop)
-Strawberry stones - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/209980401346566898/


Supplies
- Carded fiber (for spinning) dyed, undyed, batts, rolags, roving, it's all good as long as it's clean and carded
- Scrapbook paper
- Sock loom (http://www.amazon.com/Authentic-Knitting-Sock-Loom-Board/dp/B003VY9RME/?keywords=sock+loom&qid=1392562802&ref=sr_1_1&ie=UTF8&sr=8-1)

- Glimmer mists (Colors: orange, purple, red)
- Vinyl in any colors (large scraps are okay)
- Any of those quilters charm packs or jelly rolls (anything so I don't have to cut fabric is great)
- Washi tape
- Necklace pendants - I love swapping out pendants on a simple silver chain
- Cold process soap making supplies (scents, oils, colorants) (leftovers are okay)
- How-to-Knit kit for the complete impatient beginner (I get frustrated easily with that sort of thing, but still want to learn)
- Metal stamping/jewelry supplies - I have a hammer, basic anvil, alphabet/number set, but would like to do more than stamp tags
- layered SVG files for make-the-cut software - especially files that I can make cards out of and sell - horse and winter holiday themes are a plus - I really want to make and sell some cards to benefit a therapeutic riding center I volunteer at.
-Crochet hooks - I had a nice metal set, but seemed to have misplaced most of them. I want to start crocheting again.
-Metal spoons - for making garden markers
-Glue dots - permanent
-ATC tape
-Red and white bakers twine

Extras:
-I collect ATCs and inchies.
-Chocolate is always great (milk for me or dark for husband)
-handmade soap, lotion, chapsticks samples.
-scrap fibers for spinning - I'm keeping any waste from my spinning projects to make into art batts once I have enough.

I claim TerraBella01 for a hoopla

1/0/0

Hi, I'm Teresa and I live in North Georgia with my sweet husband of 33 years and our ragtag collection of rescued farm animals, cats, and one crazy little dog who is pretty sure he runs the place.  I've taught Young 5's at a private preschool for 22 years.  If I seem a bit silly at times you have to remember that I spend an awful lot of time with five year old kids.
 
I don't have any actual allergies but I just despise the smell of smoke (cigarette, pipe, and cigar) on anything!  I'm not overly fond of the scent of lavendar either.  My list consists of thing for eight or so different people so it really doesn't help to go into my favorite colors, styles, etc...   I will note preferences for each item on my list.

Please don't claim me for a surprise and please don't claim me for anything that isn't on my list or for something on one of my Pinterest boards other than the ones listed below.  Thanks!

 Crafts:
* Wall art that says "Queen Teresa's Crafty Queendom"... it needs a crown included in some fashion.  I prefer oranges, purples, and greens in rich jewel tones.  Little dashes of other colors are fine but no pink please.

* A couple of washable sandwich wraps or one with a matching snack bag.

* A painting inspired by the 70's Big Eyed Girls ( not a light blonde but anything but dirty blonde through the browns to black would be fine... red hair would work too)

 * XL full apron in a cobblers or smock style in some sort of retro looking (think 70's) floral.  I am 5' 3" and don't want it to be too long so let me know if you want any measurements.

* Wonder Woman sock monkey

* Anything for a baby or toddler.  I am collecting  things for future grandchildren so really anything goes.  There are lots of things on my Crafty Wishes Pinterest boards to use as inspiration.  

* Crocheted or knitted baby or toddler hats( right now I'd like any of the following: the one that looks like a fraggle with the big pom poms,  an owl,  a strawberry, anything that looks Laplandish,  something with floppy puppy ears  or anything in shades of light and medium blue)  

*An embroidered personalized bath towel.  Girls: Addie or Avery (pinks please) Boy: Reed (green/orange or blues)   Dog: Runt (blues)  
* A set of peg people: king, queen, prince ( I have a wonderful princess already)

* Blue and white granny squares, any size , any shades of blue.  Ladybugsandbumblebees sent me a ton of gorgeous ones but I
want lots from different people to make an afghan for my daughter some day.

*Zippered ear bud pouch.  polka dots,  insects,  solid black or gray with skull fabric inside, orange chevron or any fun whimsical fabric  ( I hope to eventually collect several of these)

* Tote bags of any design made from vintage curtains, sheets, etc... Goodwill finds are perfect for this since they are usually pretty good about making sure they are in good shape and don't smell "mothbally".

* A book safe made from a book on history, vikings, the plague, or really just any dark older looking book.

 * A knitted infinity scarf in deep purple or a really pretty emerald green (nothing too bright) There is an example of the one I like on my Pinterest on my OWS/OPS biggest wishes board.  The person it's for doesn't like skinny ones, she always wears them nice and full almost like a big fat turtleneck.

*Stained or Fused Glass ... pretty much anything.  I would love a small bee, an orange maple leaf, a spotted mushroom, something  abstract that's swirly and colorful.... anything... any size... (for the home, not jewelry)

* A wire spider web... any size, anything you come up with...

* Pretty much anything made with small fabric hexies.  I have discovered that I don't have the patience for them and I love them.  A pot holder, change purse or pouch, a mug rug, a mini quilt, even a pieced mini quilt top and I'll quilt it... anything.  I would want this in true patchwork fashion, not matchy matchy

* any size mini art quilt (I want to cover the wall in my stair well with a grand assortment of mini quilts of all sizes).  Themes that I would love are:  sunshine, wildflowers, cats, mushrooms, goats, donkeys, cows, clouds, bees, groundhogs, crows, maple leaves, or abstracts

* Anything off of my OWS/OPS Biggest Wishes board.  Please stick to this board.  If there is something on another board that you really would love to claim me for, please pm me about it first.  We are probably downsizing later this year so I'm being really particular about what I bring into my home until that's all over.

Supplies:
* Thread heaven
* Plain pillowcases, hankies, hand towels... basically anything I can embroider on
* transfer pens  
* Coptic markers
* Ink pads
* Anything that you use for your art journaling that you think I would enjoy
* Buttons... I have recently depleted my stash of buttons so I need these!
* Fun floss cards (I love the hedgehog ones but would love any cute ones)
* nice strong magnets
* Ball point paints (these are expensive and I don't know that you can buy individuals.  If you bought some and don't enjoy them I would love your leftovers)
*blank canvas... any size, any shape, any style
*Gesso
* 1" or larger circular punch (not for a machine, just a manual one)
*  1" or larger hexie punch
* Alphabet stickers... not words, just letters
* batting, interfacing, Insulbrite... anything along those lines
* A Michaels, Hobby Lobby, or JoAnn gift card is always welcomed.
*ball point paints (if you bought a set and they're not your thing, I'll be happy to take used )
* wooden embroidery hoops
*

Extras:
gluten free snacks and treats
old photos of anyone, anything for journaling
old postcards... sent or blank
Starburst Babies if you're in Australia (I would love you forever and ever and ever.....)
Teaberry gum
your favorite recipe (gf and/or vegetarian/vegan a plus but not necessary)
anything that you think I would like based on my list... I'll take it!

Thank you so much for claiming me!

2nd claim, 0 in transit, 0 received
Grab a coffee for supplies (due March 22)

Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband Uwe and two sweet little daughters Lea (2.5 years) and Hanna (6 months).  I don't like cigarette/cigar smoke, but no allergies to speak of. Our house is pet- and smoke-free.

Usually I like the things I pin as are (often except for colour, see descriptions), but I'd love to receive things "inspired by", as well.

My favourite colours are black, dark teal, deep purple, dark brown, cream & taupe (sand, milk, stone, wool... think nature), 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/ Big wishes right now are here, but I have lots of things I want on other Pinterest boards, so if you find something there...

I claim anna.wahnsinn for a Babe with the Power shirt like the one I sent her child, a mini piece of wall art for her dollhouse.

1/0/0

My name is Lindy and I am 32 and live in Arizona with my boyfriend of 5 years, my two kids, and all our fur babies.  My daughter Adia just turned 13 in December and my son Landon will be 9 in January.  We have 3 cats and 3 dogs.  None of us have any allergies so claim away.
About me:  I like hooplas, altered spoons, things with my name or initial L on them, whimsies, mini shrines/altars, Day of the Dead, Harry Potter, Dr. Who, jewelry, Disney. This list could probably go on for a really long time!   My daughter likes kittens, Animal from the Muppets, art stuff, and her iPad.  My son loves Legos, Star Wars, Minecraft, and well more Minecraft.
My favorite colors are deep purple, maroon, aqua/turquoise, pink, black, & silver.  I am not big on yellow or orange as the main colors of things.  I do not really like gold tone jewelry but will wear silver, copper, nickel, etc.
