I claim rscowtown for scrappy placemats

Claims: 1


Hi!  I'm Leigh-Ann - I'm a single mom to Levi, who is 7 and a homeschooler.  I work as a nanny and teach RE classes at a UU "church".    I'm trying to reduce the amount of "stuff" in our lives so I'd love things that are functional.   
I am very allergic to smoke, and Levi has some food allergies.   We are also both vegetarian, so no leather/feathers/steak etc please. 

Things I like:   Bright colors, rainbow colors, citrus colors (yellow, orange, lime green), grey combined with a brighter color (i.e. turquoise), stripes, solids, dots, chevron.  Modern, clean lines Happy colors.  Beach/ocean inspired stuff, nature inspired stuff.  Functional items.   

Things Levi likes:  Purple, pink, turquoise.  Anything neon.   Playing outside, being active.  Swim team, gymnastics, playing his violin.  Surfing.  The beach.  Dirt.   

Things we don't like:  smoke, leather/feathers, lace, fru fru things, flowery things.  Vintage or "shabby chic" stuff, patriotic stuff, camo colors/print. itchy things.  things that a purely decorative (unless its something on my pintrest). 

This is my pintrest: http://www.pinterest.com/leighi123/ 
There is a TON of stuff on there - I'd like any of it, or things inspired by stuff on there (i.e. you can see from the quilt section the colors I love!).    Anything on there is fair game (the embroidery designs with a heading are all ones I have, but there is one page of embroidery designs I don't have but want)   

Crafted things:

small goodies to put into pockets of a christmas advent calendar.  Can be anything a 7yr old might like.   I need a bunch of these and always have a hard time finding stuff! 

Anything fused glass in rainbow, ocean or citrus colors - wind chime, sun catcher, small dish, etc.    Ocean theme, or rainbow, or sun, or just something totally random.    (bowl, dish, suncatcher, wind chime, etc)

Rainbow quilt, throw size or bigger - lots of ideas on my pintrest here: http://www.pinterest.com/leighi123/quilts-blankets-other-quilted-stuff/

handmade natural lip balm/chapstick (prefer no artificial ingredients, essential oils are fine!)

Book bag like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/45950858668346696/   But BIG with long-ish, strong straps.   Does not need library card holder, but a outside zip/snap/velcro pocket for my wallet would be nice, and a d-ring or something to clip my keys on.   We get lots of library books!  

Resin: Hairy spoon rest or coaster, for my sister.  I will send dog hair!  (I know, this is totally gross): http://www.pinterest.com/pin/37154765646501877/

Fingerless gloves for my 7yr old (I can measure whatever is needed) - fun, bright colors (purple and turquoise and anything neon are his favorites) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/45950858667834850/

Any wall art or home dec stuff from this board, or similar type stuff: http://www.pinterest.com/leighi123/decor-home-items-i-want/

Set of un-paper towels (palm tree, beach, sorta colors)

Set of cloth wipes (bright colors)

Knit or crochet coat for my 7yr old, in bright, fun colors (purple, turquoise, lime etc).   Like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/206954545352048953/   Or this: https://www.etsy.com/listing/184018675/set-of-3-pdf-crochet-pattern-hooded?ref=sr_gallery_13&ga_search_query=kids+crochet+coat+pattern&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery
or this: https://www.etsy.com/listing/171615869/childs-play-knit-and-crochet-1970-pdf?ref=sr_gallery_7&ga_search_query=crochet+duffle+coat+pattern&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery
Or https://www.etsy.com/listing/156419297/crochet-pattern-for-baby-boy-or-girl?ref=sc_3&plkey=77b21215831d102b0b0012272281c9764974a5ae%3A156419297&ga_search_query=boys+crochet+hoodie+pattern&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery
or these are fun: https://www.etsy.com/listing/188645723/boys-critter-hoodie-collection-pdf?ref=sr_gallery_12&ga_search_query=boys+crochet+hoodie+pattern&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery

knit or crochet socks, for me and/or  for my son (6.5 womens, wide, and 13 little kid, narrow).   Like these, or any random yarn that isn’t itchy.  We both like bright colors: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/220606081716634809/
Diffuser necklace: like this (clay): http://doterrablog.com/diy-aromatherapy-jewelry-for-your-doterra-essential-oils/   Or this (locket): http://www.pinterest.com/pin/468374429970291433/  Or this (wood): http://www.pinterest.com/pin/325525879289998611/     I’d like 2 if possible.  Themes like beach/ocean/ocean animals, or owl/bird, or tree, or sayings like the wood ones in 3rd link.  (I like the “loved” one for my son!) Or anything else stylish!

Supplies:   (used is fine with me - also happy to just get supplies!)

1” or bigger circle hole punch/paper puncher - to make circles (used is fine!)

Essential oils (part used or small amounts fine too) - Willing to try any, but especially need lavender, tea tree oil and citrus (orange, lemon, lime) and peppermint.  Also anything good for calming or focus.   

Embroidery thread that fits a brother embroidery machine - especially need orange, black, turquoise, medium pink, white, glow in the dark, variegated (any color) - but ANY colors are useful, and I don’t mind partial spools

Fabric in solid colors or simple prints (dots, stripe, chevron etc) - any colors, but really like bright colors, or neutrals:  Knits (for making t-shirts), ribbing, Broadcloth, kona cottons or similar, bottom weights (anything good for making pants/shorts).   Also need sweatshirt knit and velour for making sweatpants.

Scraps or fat quarters or smaller pieces of semi solids in quilting cotton or similar (for appliqués) - any color in the rainbow, brown, tan, pink - and colors good for ocean, sky, grass, tree, rock, sand, skin tones, etc.   

Fabenmix patterns, especially for pants (boy or girl) and tops (boy or neutral)

1/2” twill tape, for making tags (whatever washes nicely, white or off white)

Wilton cake decorating tips, especially the larger star tip for frosting cupcakes

Natural food coloring

Wood burning supplies

Embroidery designs, PES format, I like appliqués in particular.  My pinterest shows what I have already, except the one that is just called “embroidery”

Wine bottle cutter



Extras:

High quality chocolate
Natural gum (i.e. xyletol)
Fun erasers/pencils

Sex, Crafts and Silmarils…

I claim leighi123 for citrus coasters, washi tape and button bobby pins (as seen on your Pinterest!), will be sent next week.

2d claim, 0 in transit, 1 received

1st claim = anna.wahnsinn for molecule jewelry, glittery/shiny cardstock, and beads

My name is Agnes Riemann, and I'm an Art History student from Belgium! I am allergic to dust and lactose, I have no pets, and I don't smoke. 

I'm an avid fan of the Silmarillion (and everything Tolkien, really), the Portal games, and Alice in Wonderland, both the original and the Tim Burton version. I also like crows/ravens, surrealism, and sciency/steampunky things. Some of my favorite artists are HR Giger, Michael Manning, Damien Hirst, Allen Jones, Salvador Dali, Jenny Dolfen, Ted Nasmith and Louis Tresseras.
My favorite colors are black, red (blood red, burgundy, etc... no earthy, rusty tones though), and royal blue. I like pillows, interesting jewelry, strange/unusual home decor, fabric (preferably silky/velvety/satiny types), beads, charms, embroidery… the list is virtually endless!

I have made a board for this swap: http://www.pinterest.com/quantumphysica/the-wish-list/ but do check out the rest of my boards if you want a better idea of what kind of person I am… I tried my best to put all kinds of crafty items to this list, but if necessary I'll add more/different things.

Sewn/Knitted/Crocheted Items

- A cape. Yeah, I know. I'd love to have a long, black hooded cape, something like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585562/ or this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585568/ I'm about 1.70m tall.
- Decorative pillows (or just pillow cases). I hope to amass a pillow heap on my bed... ^^ (I have a mass of pillow ideas on my Pinterest board…)
- A notebook cover, A5 sized. (Something like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585573/ or anything in that genre)
- Fingerless gloves, preferably black, red, or somehow fandom themed.
- A hood/scarf with cat ears. (Something like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585519/ or this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585523/ Cheshire Cat colors would be awesome, but I'd already be overjoyed with a plain black one Smiley )
- A ruffled cravat (something like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585583/ or this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585576/)

- A sword pendant (something like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938585616/)
- Old school laboratory glassware (might not be ideal for shipping, but it won't hurt to ask, right?)

- Hand-shaped cookie cutters (Something like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/544302304938591920/)
