The size of the package should be a medium item. This means 2 or more crafting hours ( this is not cooking time, drying time, etc.. waiting around for something to set up.......it is craft time for the average crafter) or supplies worth at least $20.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER & CO-ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Do not post in this thread until you are ready to make a claim. All discussion needs to be kept in the discussion thread. Please post at least once in the discussion thread.

When you PM the orgs for sending and receiving please include the name of the swap (including the round) and the due date of the claim. Please send to both Averia and Spikefan
I.E.  Sally ----> Suzy for a pink pony saddle due out Jan 1

Please pay close attention to your partners wish list and allergies, likes, dislikes etc. Make sure your own allergy information and your country are prominently displayed in your post.

Do not claim someone while waiting for approval. You may claim as soon as you get approval confirmation.

Have your list including both 15 medium crafted items AND 15 supply items ready before making your first claim (the more you have, the better your chance of getting claimed quickly).

Please include your claims status: How many claims you have made in total, how many are in transit and how many have been received by their intended recipients. i.e/ 4 claims/1 in transit/2 received.

Unsent Claim Limit:
Friend of Craftster: Three

You may claim again once you have shipped a claim but you can not have more than twice your Unsent Claim Limit outstanding at any one time.

If you are a friend of craftster you can have 3 unsent claims open at a time and no more than 6 total claims open (open meaning in transit as well as not yet sent) no matter how many have been posted. As an example, You claim 3 times, send all 3 packages, then claim 3 more times. Even when you send any or even all of those 3 claims, you can not claim again until a claim has been received. So a person can be 6 claims/3 in transit/0 received. Or 6/6/0 or 8/5/2 or 7/5/1.

If you are not a friend of craftster, you can have at most 2 claims unsent and 4 claims total between unsent and in transit. So 4/2/0 is okay or 5/3/1 or 6/4/2

If this is your first swap, You can have at most one claim in transit and one claim unsent. 2/1/0, 2/2/0, 3/1/1

Please keep in mind that DC#'s are required for all US to US packages and receipts are required for all international packages. If you can not provide a receipt and the package does not arrive you will need to resend the package.

Claiming Grab a coffee for paper punches and gemstones

Hi, I'm Sylvan!
I'm a Girl Guide Leader in Manitoba, Canada. I love crafting and camping, and teaching my groups camp/survival skills, though I spend most of the latter time doped up on anti-histamines. :p

I am going to be ridiculously upfront. I am horrifically allergic to scents of ALL kinds, natural and synthetic. Perfumes(including laundry soaps), pot pourri, flowers, animals, smoke... If it smells nice or bad, I'm probably allergic. With most things, if I can clean it, I won't get an allergic reaction. I wipe hard items with vodka (it kills the enzymes that cause the reactions) and toss soft items in the washing machine with my unscented soap.
I mention the vodka because a couple items on my list may need paint. To avoid discolouration, please seal paint or put a note in saying it may need to be sealed. I will do a spot test before wiping it all over. Wink

Now, if you haven't been scared off by that... :p

I claim rscowtown for Dachhounds hoopla and something peacock for her sil.  

1st claim
0 sent
0 recieved.

Hey there.  I live in the U.S. with my dear hubby, sweet kiddo and a young playful pug.  Allergies are in our house, but shouldnt affect anything sent to us because the allergies are mostly dust, grass, pollen, mold and other outside things.  We do have a cat allergy in the house and sinus issues though, so please no strong smoke smells.  Cat friendly homes can claim us, just please try to limit the cats contact with the items.  Anyways, my crafty skills include crocheting, knitting, embroidery and simple sewing, simple shirt stenciling/screen printing.   I am dabbling in chain mail bracelets now too, but a total newbie in this area.  I had not much interest in jewelry making, but someone on Craftster had to mention chain mail, and I was curious what it was.then.I was like Hey, thats cool.  I bet I could make those for Christmas gifts.  Hmmm  And well, we all know how everyone here on Craftster are good at enabling others to do more crafts.so thats the story.  LOL.

Likes

Others:  fun fur yarns, strong perfumy scents, lace & frilly things, doilies, puffy paint, glitter, fabric paint that cracks and chips.

Crafted:
If yarn is sent or things made with yarn please make sure its machine washable and dryable.  With two shedding dogs, all things must be washable to help remove their fur.
-Magic yarn ball.
-Scrabble Tile Pillows that spell LOVE.  Im a little picky about these.  I had some that were painted, the paint cracked.  So I would like the Letters to be sewn on the pillows using black felt.  Just the regular machine washable and dryable felt though.  And you dont have to stuff them though, just make them like pillow cases.  The backs can be the pocket fold kind or a zipper closer.
-Jurassic Pug stenciled shirt.  Juniors medium, crew neck in perhaps a heather grey or white. https://www.etsy.com/listing/173745273/jurassic-pug-jumper?ref=sr_gallery_9&ga_search_query=pug&ga_ship_to=US&ga_ref=auto1&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery
-a set of 4 star wars coasters.  Would it be possible to have them made with those absorbant ceremaic tiles?
-Set of 6 Pug coasters using pictures of my own pugs.  Would it be possible to have them made with those absorbant ceremaic tiles?  I need a set of 6 for the kitchen.
-Pug species art.  8x10 or bigger. https://www.etsy.com/listing/153899272/art-print-pug-poster-dog-illustration?ref=sr_gallery_25&ga_search_query=pug&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=6&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery
-pug sculpture https://www.etsy.com/listing/176709729/lucky-pug-foo-dog-sculpture-in-zen?ref=sr_gallery_11&ga_search_query=pug&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=11&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery

-Set of oven mitts that looks like a shark.  Please make them extra thick to prevent hand burns. http://collisionware.com/sites/default/files/shark%20main.jpg
-Set of oven mitts that look like pugs.  I guess sorta like the shark style ones, but pugs instead of sharks.  Id need a black pug oven mitt and a fawn pug oven mitt.
-Hollow book case for my kindle.  Bonus if you use an old antique looking book, or Harry Potter book, or Twilight book.
http://www.etsy.com/listing/83024147/kindle-or-nook-hollow-book-case-batman
-Weasley Blanket squares.   For 2014 I am determined to actually make a knit item for myself.  I always knit for others, but never for myself.  Anyways, with that being said, this is a big project, If you would like to help me make my very own Weasley blanket feel free to knit me a square or two or more.  Just please remember to make sure the squares are 7x7 in size, made in worsted weight yarn, and yarn must be machine washable and dryable.  I own pugs and this is necessary to help remove fur from things.  Im guessing acrylic or cotton would be best.  Oh, and nothing itchy please, Im going for soft and cozy.   Anyways, with that being said below is the link with the pattern with the squares.  https://docs.google.com/file/d/1z-P2tmU9T9qh2PvS3IFrc0sw-U7cGI6PZIgFRf_RIVpXvKk94Psb5IS-UsiQ/edit?pli=1
-fabric bins. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279493743477/
-Quilted place mats.  I need a set of 6 for our kitchen table.  Maroon, hunter-ish green, white and black. http://www.needleandspatula.com/2011/06/spicing-up-kitchen-swap-placemats-and.html
-Stripey socks. Womens us size 7.5 http://www.pinterest.com/pin/220606081716634809/

I love all colors except neons and pastels. Right now I've been super loving geometric art especially crystal forms and chevrons, topography,  I have no allergies, so no worries there.

I claim La Chapa for a stenciled bee shirt for her and Doctor Who shirt for her son

2/0/0

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.

I claim kittykill for jewelry based on her Pinterest (due May 22)

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 (8 months).  I don't like cigarette/cigar smoke, but have 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-list/. Big wishes right now are here, but I have lots of things I want on other Pinterest boards, so if you find something there...

Jewelry wants: http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/jewelry-id-love-to-receive/

Sewn
O triple zipper bag like this or any other style, just need a small pouch with two extra pockets! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494592681/
O microwavable potholder bowls http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494937861/
O wall organizer with flat pockets, colourful like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494587827/ or cream/sand, or whatever you think would work for me
O unpaper towels, any colours/patterns, flannel or terrycloth... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494418839/ (have one set with kam snaps!)
O dandelion tablet sleeve (message me for size) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494719141/
O I'd love to get this pleated tote (or similar) in black, larger up to twice the size of the instructions: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494071271/ (I have a regular-sized one, and I love it!)
O a floor cushion cover for the kids like this (I'll take care of the stuffing!) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279493109832/ or a big squareish floor cushion http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494212631/ or... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494320861/ (can be one solid colour, could use more than one)
O diaper caddy thing http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279493868307/
O fabric bucket like these or any other (with or without handles, no lining required) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279493743477/ love these handles: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279493897765/
O snap on water bottle holder, this style (but not necessarily that fabric...): http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494068603/
O Quiet Book (closure learning type?) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494606323/

O spiral heel socks http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279493860489/
O any socks really, cable, plain, or self-striping, knit or or crochet...
O single solid colour knit or crochet smallish Chunky Baby Blanket (similar to these 3?) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279493622835/ as a lapghan for me (in a cream or sand tone? or whatever you have that you think would work for me)
O knit hat with owl pattern http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494719195//owl-hat-4  55 or 60cm (or really large for me)

O fingerless mittens (maybe with flap?) flip-top mittens: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494937861/

Other
O mini hooplas/wall art for my room in the doll house (because there is no space for a hoopla wall and I love tiny things!). So inchies or rinchies in any medium, but I'd love you forever for tiny embroidered, appliqued, cross stitched "hoops".
O cover for tablet (the bookish kind) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494649573/
O embroidery floss cards - plain, or shaped, painted, printed... lots of those! (examples on my Pinterest)
O simple design: cute ladybug or sparrow stamp
O yarn bowl - this pottery 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 while I'm working
O pen loops (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...
O Calvin & Hobbes - again anything "pretty" and/or useful
O something Care Bears! But from the original series please, not the bobbleheaded new ones.
O something "Where the Wild Things Are"... loved by me and my daughter!

Shirts
I prefer a round, wide neckline, so a scoop neck or boatneck would be best (don't like anything too close to the throat). And I love 3/4 sleeves (or long), but tees or tanks are fine, too. Love both cotton with a bit of stretch, or cotton only. Women's plus size 24/26 or 3x.
Themes: Anything you think might work for me, or see here for ideas: http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/t-shirts-i-want-to-make/
O Rickroll shirt for me - something like this, or completely different... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494328944/
O anything Labyrinth for me... Jareth, or a quotation, or the ello-worm, or... preferably in black and white (or a teeny bit glittery?)
O Calvin & Hobbes (I love: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495095892/)

Supplies (scraps or used is fine!)
O Fimo soft (all the colours!)
O plain white silk scarves, shawls, foulards etc. for me to paint
O always: fabric!

O bias tape (handmade, patterned?)
O freezer paper

O metal stamping rectangles & stamps (heart, star!) (oh, anything really, I only have very plain alphabet stamps)
O embroidery floss bobbins
O twill tape
O magnetic closures for purses/bags
O pretty (glittery or pearly) papers or cardstock (would love 12x18cm / 5x8in, can use smaller), especially in teal, cream, turquoise, black, pink/rose or brown (to be used as planner pages/dividers etc.)
O books or magazines on embroidery, cross stitch, doll houses, sewing (doll clothes, kids, or women plus size)
O KamSnaps, small preferred
O no sew snaps (refills; no tools needed) (Prym) smallish preferred
O very small patches (esp. ladybugs) for darning
O seed beads in 11/0, 15/0, delicas

I claim spikefan for a supply package

3/0/0

My name is Lindy and I am 33 and live in Arizona with my boyfriend of 5 years, my two kids, and all our fur babies.  My daughter Adia is 13  and my son Landon is 9.  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.

I claim spikefan for a hoopla (due May 29)

2nd claim, 0 in transit, 0 received
kittykill for jewelry based on her Pinterest (due May 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 (8 months).  I don't like cigarette/cigar smoke, but have 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-list/. Big wishes right now are here, but I have lots of things I want on other Pinterest boards, so if you find something there...

Also new: Jewelry wants: http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/jewelry-id-love-to-receive/

I claim anna.wahnsinn for a supply package - heavy on the kids fabrics
1 claims, 0 in transit, 0 received

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, 2 guinea pigs, a toad 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.

We have no allergies here (other than awful ragweed allergies... but can't see that as much of an issue in swap packages)

Please feel to claim me for anything on my Please make this for me boards on pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me/ http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-knitcrochet/ or http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-embroidered-bits/

Make all things!!

I claim anna!  Supplies and something sewn... Grin.

This is my first claim this round,

anna.wahnsinn--due 6/2/14

Hi, my name is Linda.  I live near Hershey, PA on a forested piece of land with my husband, three cats and an old black lab.  

I love to sew and knit but have little time for art so most of the things I want are things to brighten my day and my workspace.  I joined this swap because
I enjoy the company and I also see lots of things I want to make but have no reason to make them for myself.

I am not allergic to anything.

I want whomever selects me to do their own thing...I enjoy almost all styles except I am not really into cutesy, animation, etc.

My favorite colors are red, black, and earth tones: greens, blues, browns, golds. I mostly wear bright colors, but my home is more neutral and earthy.

I also prefer smaller things as I am trying to display a lot in limited space.  I have tons of wall space.

Here is my limited list.  I have a Pinterest account, but most of the stuff there are things I want to make, not receive.   I'll be working on updating a new board as the year progresses
for things I want similar...I prefer not to have anything copied as I respect the original artist and want you to develop your own style with Pinterest as inspiration only.



NOTECARDS -- just decorated or with "Thank you" on them---I go through a ton of these due to swapping and making gifts for family and friends...no oversized ones due to postal costs...just simple regular ones

HEARTS--I have collected these from Craftsters for years...I hang them on a string in my craft room...so anything that can be clipped to a string would be great: felt, knitted, crocheted, paper


INCHIES - I want to do an alphabet sampler...right now, I have none, so pick a letter or two and I will scratch them off...I would like a variety of styles from different people, so no more than 3 or 4 from one person, please
I also love bugs, cats, the color red, and graphic designs...chevrons, dots, stripes, etc.


What I have so far: A, B, C, F, H, J, L, M, O, Z

ATC's--Here I want to do my full name so I need letters!  I have the following letters already "L(2)" ,"D","E", "S"...I need the following: I, E(2), B, O, L, R,  N,  A. S --any style would be great!  I REALLY WANT TO FINISH MY NAME TO DECORATE A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY CRAFT ROOM!!!
-my themes are: the color red, Asian-themed, insects, sewing, vintage, circus,

Please ask me before doing this one as I need to check to see which letters I am missing!

ART FOR MY WALLS...I am trying to cover my entire craft room with wall art...hoops, watercolors, etc. Anything not too big so I can fit a lot more artists...say nothing bigger than about 8x10..I prefer smaller, if possible - no limit on the amount of art, so please keep claiming this if you are so inclined!  Grin



JEWELRY--I love wearing longer necklaces ...I like pendants and funky pieces that make people ask about the piece--I don't want anything too dainty that will get lost in the background...but I don't want to look like MC Hammer, either!


BOOKMARKS are always welcome in my house...


Supplies:  I would love hand spun or hand dyed yarns in a quantity large enough to at least make a cowl...preferably done by you! Small pieces of fabric are also welcomed...and if they are hand printed, I would probably die from happiness!

I like postcards and stuff unique to the area you live in...this could include local coffees, teas, candy

I have a limited Pinterest so feel free to ask if you see anything I might like that you want to make.

OTHER: any type of pin or brooch for my plain coats--felted, crocheted, sewn, jewelry...I just love wearing pins on everything! I also love felted small ornaments or pins.

STAMPS:  I would like any kind of hand carved stamp for my own art...it does not have to be huge. I love Dr. Who motifs or nature motifs or plain graphics

PINCUSHIONS:  I have quite a collection, but would love one that goes on my sewing machine or a cute picture frame one--my fav would be a red picture frame!

HOME DECOR:  I have made a resolution to decorate for the holidays...I have two fireplaces, so anything to decorate for the holidays would be great.
I would like Valentines stuff or Halloween stuff or even Mardi Gras--wreaths, buntings, whatever is cute and can be displayed on a mantel! St. Patricks day and 4th of July/Memorial Day would be great...Christmas anytime!


CAR SEAT ORGANIZER or Trash Bag!:  I have to have certain papers in my car at all times so I would love something hanging on the back seat to hold a file folder and a few other things like tissues, trash bags, etc.

Project bags:  what can I say...I love to knit and have several projects going at once...I would love some smaller fabric buckets, only large enough to hold a ball of yarn...with a drawstring top and a loop so I can put it on my wrist...I like knitting while standing in lines or sitting at the doctor's...

*NEW*
Coffee -related items: I would adore a coffee hoop--chemical symbol in my Pinterest...or any kind of saying, t-shirt, etc. with something coffee...coffee fabrics?

I received one from kittykill but would love a collection.

*NEW*
Felted journal cover, needlebook, ANYTHING--can be needle felted or wet felted...I love the textures of this  craft

*NEW*
Fabric journal pages - 4x6...please make the actual page 4.5 x 6 as I plan on binding my journal...any style...I want your style!

*NEW*
Felt food...I have a new obsession...I want to give my little nephew a set of safe felt food for his birthday in July


*NEW*
Cat toys!  Crochet, felt, fabric....my cats are driving me crazy because they can't go out in this horrible snow!  I have been giving them corks to play with, but my dog chews them up to bits...so, any kind of cat toy would be fabulous!

*NEW*

Prayer flags... I love these!

*NEW*

Quilt blocks--12-1/2x12-1/2 size...I want to do a random block quilt and need about 9 of these! Grin  I would love stars, pinwheels, with white backgrounds

Thanks for claiming me!  I love this swap!

I claim alwaysinmyroom for Note cards, a brooch, and something else...

4/2/0

I claim lindyv321 for jewelry (due June 2)

4th claim, 2 in transit, 1 received
kittykill for jewelry based on her Pinterest (sent May 16)
spikefan for a hoopla (due May 29)
Averia for an embroidered necklace pouch thing + a surprise (sent May 30)
lindyv321 for jewelry (sent May 30)

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 (8 months).  I don't like cigarette/cigar smoke, but have no allergies to speak of. Our house is pet- and smoke-free.

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-list/. Big wishes right now are here, but I have lots of things I want on other Pinterest boards, so if you find something there... Also new: Jewelry wants: http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/jewelry-id-love-to-receive/ and T-shirts http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/t-shirts-i-want-to-make/ I love the two I've received so far and am wearing them constantly.

O yarn bowl - this pottery 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 while I'm working
O pen loops (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...
O Calvin & Hobbes - again anything "pretty" and/or useful
O something Care Bears! But from the original series please, not the bobbleheaded new ones.
O something "Where the Wild Things Are"... loved by me and my daughter!

T-Shirts
I love the two I've received so far and am wearing them constantly. Now I want more!
I prefer a round, wide neckline, so a scoop neck or boatneck would be best (don't like anything too close to the throat). Deep V-neck would be okay, too. And I love 3/4 sleeves (or long), but tees or tanks are always fine, too. Love both cotton with a bit of stretch as well as cotton only; also very thin fabrics. Women's plus size 24/26 or 3x.
If possible, I prefer drawn/painted/embroidered etc. over iron-ons, because these tend to get destroyed in our wahing machine.
Themes: Anything you think might work for me, or see here for ideas: http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/t-shirts-i-want-to-make/
O XKCD t-shirts (both babies, grownups)
O Rickroll shirt for me - something like this, or completely different... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494328944/ Or can just be Rick Astley, without rolling...
O anything Labyrinth for me... Jareth, or a quotation, or... preferably in black and white (or a teeny bit glittery?)
O Calvin & Hobbes (I love: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495095892/)

Supplies (scraps or used is fine!)
O DMC floss: any of these numbers for two projects:
starry night over the rhone: 158 159 160 161 162 169 318 414 612 726 729 798 809 3822 3823 3838 3839 3840 3865
midsummer eve: 931, 936 (3), 935, 904, 890 (3), 319, 924, 895 (2), 469 (2), 930, 3363, 3346, 700, 826, 782, 3790, 610, 907, 704, 470, 3052, 3012, 372, 437, 3046, 725, 959, 522, 833, 834, 727, 819
O fabric paint (favourites: black, white, dark teal, dark purple, dark brown, pink; but need the regular colours as well to make shirts and pillowcases with the kiddo) (can also be glittery, metallic or pearlescent) - I'd love the kind that doesn't have to be ironed to fix the paint
O Fimo soft (all the colours!)
O plain white silk scarves, shawls, foulards, handkerchieves etc. for me to paint
O always: fabric!
O zippers!
O thread: my favourites are Gtermann, Coats and Madeira; I use cotton, polyester or blends
O bias tape (handmade, patterned?)
O (a roll of) freezer paper
O calendar stamp http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495066678/
O metal stamping blanks & stamps (heart, star!) (oh, anything really, I only have very plain alphabet stamps)
O embroidery floss bobbins (plain, or patterned)
O wool felt - I don't have any yet, I get only the acrylic stuff here
O twill tape
O magnetic closures for purses/bags
O pretty (glittery or pearly) papers or cardstock (would love 12x18cm / 5x8in, can use smaller), especially in teal, cream, turquoise, black, pink/rose or brown (to be used as planner pages/dividers etc.)
O books or magazines on (bead) embroidery, cross stitch, sewing (doll clothes, kids, or women plus size)
O kids clothes (toddlers, bigger kids) sewing patterns; doll clothes sewing patterns (American Girl, and baby 12inch)
O KamSnaps
O no sew snaps (refills; no tools needed) (Prym) smallish preferred, or very large eyelets (1/2 inch +)
O very small patches (esp. ladybugs) for darning
O seed beads in 11/0, 15/0, delicas
O glass beads from 3mm to 12mm, any colours/shapes
O beading supplies, especially a small bead scoop, charms, headpins
O post-its
O stamps, ink pads
O a few chap stick containers (or one or two chocolatey or beeswax ones?) (the ones with the small cap that fit tightly)
O really tiny jars/bottles/containers/cardboard boxes (no such thing as too small)
O tea tins / tea caddies (to be used to hold craft stuff) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377711/ and http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377711/ (love tea urns, too, but those might be not ideal for overseas shipping)
O anything really from these: original care bears, forever friends, curious george, very hungry caterpillar, barbapapa, moomins, gruffalo

Make all things!!

« Reply #26 on: May 21, 2014 04:37:52 AM »

I claim Anna again!  Might as well send tons overseas to make it worthwhile! Grin

This is my second claim...due June 2--I will send all at once.

2/0/0

Hi, my name is Linda.  I live near Hershey, PA on a forested piece of land with my husband, three cats and an old black lab. 

I love to sew and knit but have little time for art so most of the things I want are things to brighten my day and my workspace.  I joined this swap because
I enjoy the company and I also see lots of things I want to make but have no reason to make them for myself.

I am not allergic to anything.

I want whomever selects me to do their own thing...I enjoy almost all styles except I am not really into cutesy, animation, etc.

My favorite colors are red, black, and earth tones: greens, blues, browns, golds. I mostly wear bright colors, but my home is more neutral and earthy.

I also prefer smaller things as I am trying to display a lot in limited space.  I have tons of wall space.

Here is my limited list.  I have a Pinterest account, but most of the stuff there are things I want to make, not receive.   I'll be working on updating a new board as the year progresses
for things I want similar...I prefer not to have anything copied as I respect the original artist and want you to develop your own style with Pinterest as inspiration only.



NOTECARDS -- just decorated or with "Thank you" on them---I go through a ton of these due to swapping and making gifts for family and friends...no oversized ones due to postal costs...just simple regular ones

HEARTS--I have collected these from Craftsters for years...I hang them on a string in my craft room...so anything that can be clipped to a string would be great: felt, knitted, crocheted, paper


INCHIES - I want to do an alphabet sampler...right now, I have none, so pick a letter or two and I will scratch them off...I would like a variety of styles from different people, so no more than 3 or 4 from one person, please
I also love bugs, cats, the color red, and graphic designs...chevrons, dots, stripes, etc.


What I have so far: A, B, C, F, H, J, L, M, O, Z

ATC's--Here I want to do my full name so I need letters!  I have the following letters already "L(2)" ,"D","E", "S"...I need the following: I, E(2), B, O, L, R,  N,  A. S --any style would be great!  I REALLY WANT TO FINISH MY NAME TO DECORATE A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY CRAFT ROOM!!!
-my themes are: the color red, Asian-themed, insects, sewing, vintage, circus,

Please ask me before doing this one as I need to check to see which letters I am missing!

ART FOR MY WALLS...I am trying to cover my entire craft room with wall art...hoops, watercolors, etc. Anything not too big so I can fit a lot more artists...say nothing bigger than about 8x10..I prefer smaller, if possible - no limit on the amount of art, so please keep claiming this if you are so inclined!  Grin



JEWELRY--I love wearing longer necklaces ...I like pendants and funky pieces that make people ask about the piece--I don't want anything too dainty that will get lost in the background...but I don't want to look like MC Hammer, either!


BOOKMARKS are always welcome in my house...


Supplies:  I would love hand spun or hand dyed yarns in a quantity large enough to at least make a cowl...preferably done by you! Small pieces of fabric are also welcomed...and if they are hand printed, I would probably die from happiness!

I like postcards and stuff unique to the area you live in...this could include local coffees, teas, candy

I have a limited Pinterest so feel free to ask if you see anything I might like that you want to make.

OTHER: any type of pin or brooch for my plain coats--felted, crocheted, sewn, jewelry...I just love wearing pins on everything! I also love felted small ornaments or pins.

STAMPS:  I would like any kind of hand carved stamp for my own art...it does not have to be huge. I love Dr. Who motifs or nature motifs or plain graphics

PINCUSHIONS:  I have quite a collection, but would love one that goes on my sewing machine or a cute picture frame one--my fav would be a red picture frame!

HOME DECOR:  I have made a resolution to decorate for the holidays...I have two fireplaces, so anything to decorate for the holidays would be great.
I would like Valentines stuff or Halloween stuff or even Mardi Gras--wreaths, buntings, whatever is cute and can be displayed on a mantel! St. Patricks day and 4th of July/Memorial Day would be great...Christmas anytime!


CAR SEAT ORGANIZER or Trash Bag!:  I have to have certain papers in my car at all times so I would love something hanging on the back seat to hold a file folder and a few other things like tissues, trash bags, etc.

Project bags:  what can I say...I love to knit and have several projects going at once...I would love some smaller fabric buckets, only large enough to hold a ball of yarn...with a drawstring top and a loop so I can put it on my wrist...I like knitting while standing in lines or sitting at the doctor's...

*NEW*
Coffee -related items: I would adore a coffee hoop--chemical symbol in my Pinterest...or any kind of saying, t-shirt, etc. with something coffee...coffee fabrics?

I received one from kittykill but would love a collection.

*NEW*
Felted journal cover, needlebook, ANYTHING--can be needle felted or wet felted...I love the textures of this  craft

*NEW*
Fabric journal pages - 4x6...please make the actual page 4.5 x 6 as I plan on binding my journal...any style...I want your style!

*NEW*
Felt food...I have a new obsession...I want to give my little nephew a set of safe felt food for his birthday in July


*NEW*
Cat toys!  Crochet, felt, fabric....my cats are driving me crazy because they can't go out in this horrible snow!  I have been giving them corks to play with, but my dog chews them up to bits...so, any kind of cat toy would be fabulous!

*NEW*

Prayer flags... I love these!

*NEW*

Quilt blocks--12-1/2x12-1/2 size...I want to do a random block quilt and need about 9 of these! Grin  I would love stars, pinwheels, with white backgrounds

Thanks for claiming me!  I love this swap!

Hi! I'm Olivia, and this is my very first OWS!  My husband and I have two boys ages 14, and 4, and a lot of my craft requests will be for them.  We live in sunny Southern California, USA with a handful of unusual pets, and a lot of houseplants.  I am allergic to wool and cannot wear anything that has the slightest bit of wool or animal fiber in it, but it's okay to use for crafted items that are not intended to be worn.  Here's my wishlist, and thanks in advance!

I claim La Chapa for a bibbed apron!

This is my 3rd claim.

3/0/0

Hi, my name is Linda.  I live near Hershey, PA on a forested piece of land with my husband, three cats and an old black lab.  My elderly mother also lives with us.
I love to sew and knit but have little time for art so most of the things I want are things to brighten my day and my workspace.  I joined this swap because
I enjoy the company and I also see lots of things I want to make but have no reason to make them for myself.

I am not allergic to anything, except maybe rude and mean people.

I want whomever selects me to do their own thing...I enjoy almost all styles except I am not really into cutesy, animation, etc.

My favorite colors are red, black, and earth tones: greens, blues, browns, golds. I mostly wear bright colors, but my home is more neutral and earthy.

I also prefer smaller things as I am trying to display a lot in limited space.  I have tons of wall space.

Here is my limited list.  I have a Pinterest account, but most of the stuff there are things I want to make, not receive.   I'll be working on updating a new board as the year progresses
for things I want similar...I prefer not to have anything copied as I respect the original artist and want you to develop your own style with Pinterest as inspiration only.



NOTECARDS -- just decorated or with "Thank you" on them---I go through a ton of these due to swapping and making gifts for family and friends...no oversized ones due to postal costs...just simple regular ones

HEARTS--I have collected these from Craftsters for years...I hang them on a string in my craft room...so anything that can be clipped to a string would be great: felt, knitted, crocheted, paper


INCHIES - I want to do an alphabet sampler...right now, I have none, so pick a letter or two and I will scratch them off...I would like a variety of styles from different people, so no more than 3 or 4 from one person, please
I also love bugs, cats, the color red, and graphic designs...chevrons, dots, stripes, etc.


What I have so far: A, B, C, F, H, J, L, M, O, Z

ATC's--Here I want to do my full name so I need letters!  I have the following letters already "L(2)" ,"D","E", "S"...I need the following: I, E(2), B, O, L, R,  N,  A. S --any style would be great!  I REALLY WANT TO FINISH MY NAME TO DECORATE A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY CRAFT ROOM!!!
-my themes are: the color red, Asian-themed, insects, sewing, vintage, circus,

Please ask me before doing this one as I need to check to see which letters I am missing!

ART FOR MY WALLS...I am trying to cover my entire craft room with wall art...hoops, watercolors, etc. Anything not too big so I can fit a lot more artists...say nothing bigger than about 8x10..I prefer smaller, if possible - no limit on the amount of art, so please keep claiming this if you are so inclined!  Grin

I really want a coral reef style hoop...I love love them!!


JEWELRY--I love wearing longer necklaces ...I like pendants and funky pieces that make people ask about the piece--I don't want anything too dainty that will get lost in the background...but I don't want to look like MC Hammer, either!


BOOKMARKS are always welcome in my house...


Supplies:  I would love hand spun or hand dyed yarns in a quantity large enough to at least make a cowl...preferably done by you!


Hand printed fabrics are always welcome


I like postcards and stuff unique to the area you live in...this could include local coffees, teas, candy

I have a limited Pinterest so feel free to ask if you see anything I might like that you want to make.

OTHER: any type of pin or brooch for my plain coats--felted, crocheted, sewn, jewelry...I just love wearing pins on everything! I also love felted small ornaments or pins.

STAMPS:  I would like any kind of hand carved stamp for my own art...it does not have to be huge. I love Dr. Who motifs or nature motifs or plain graphics

PINCUSHIONS:  I have quite a collection, but would love one that goes on my sewing machine or a cute picture frame one--my fav would be a red picture frame!

HOME DECOR:  I have made a resolution to decorate for the holidays...I have two fireplaces, so anything to decorate for the holidays would be great.
I would like Valentines stuff or Halloween stuff or even Mardi Gras--wreaths, buntings, whatever is cute and can be displayed on a mantel! St. Patricks day and 4th of July/Memorial Day would be great...Christmas anytime!


CAR SEAT ORGANIZER or Trash Bag!:  I have to have certain papers in my car at all times so I would love something hanging on the back seat to hold a file folder and a few other things like tissues, trash bags, etc.

Project bags:  what can I say...I love to knit and have several projects going at once...I would love some smaller fabric buckets, only large enough to hold a ball of yarn...with a drawstring top and a loop so I can put it on my wrist...I like knitting while standing in lines or sitting at the doctor's...

*NEW*
Coffee -related items: I would adore a coffee hoop--chemical symbol in my Pinterest...or any kind of saying, t-shirt, etc. with something coffee...coffee fabrics?

I received one from kittykill but would love a collection.

*NEW*
Felted journal cover, needlebook, ANYTHING--can be needle felted or wet felted...I love the textures of this  craft

*NEW*
Fabric journal pages - 4x6...please make the actual page 4.5 x 6 as I plan on binding my journal...any style...I want your style!

*NEW*
Felt food...I have a new obsession...I want to give my little nephew a set of safe felt food for his birthday in July


*NEW*
Cat toys!  Crochet, felt, fabric....my cats are driving me crazy because they can't go out in this horrible snow!  I have been giving them corks to play with, but my dog chews them up to bits...so, any kind of cat toy would be fabulous!

Thanks for claiming me!  I love this swap!

*NEW*

Prayer flags... I love these!

*NEW*

Quilt blocks--12-1/2x12-1/2 size...I want to do a random block quilt and need about 9 of these! Grin  I would love stars, pinwheels, with white backgrounds

I claim underthemountain for a book, due June 7th.

3/1/1

Hi, I'm Sylvan. I'm 27 and live in Manitoba, Canada with my tall, dark and bearded.

Allergies are a big thing for me. If it smells nice or bad, I'm probably allergic to it! :p
I am allergic to almost every scent, all pollens, most animals...

That being said, I won't die and if the item can be cleaned, I am good! I wipe hard items with vodka to kill the enzymes that cause my reactions, and soft items go in the washing machine with my scent-free soap.

I do ask that painted items be sealed somehow so that I can wipe them down though...


On to the fun parts!

Knitting/crochet

I claim Alittlemusthave for a tea pot hoopla
2 claims, 0 in transit, 0 received

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, 2 guinea pigs, a toad 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.

We have no allergies here (other than awful ragweed allergies... but can't see that as much of an issue in swap packages)

Please feel to claim me for anything on my Please make this for me boards on pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me/ http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-knitcrochet/ or http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-embroidered-bits/

I claim Shifty girl for a bib/cape and a baby surprise.
3 claims, 0 in transit, 0 received

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, 2 guinea pigs, a toad 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.

We have no allergies here (other than awful ragweed allergies... but can't see that as much of an issue in swap packages)

Please feel to claim me for anything on my Please make this for me boards on pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me/ http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-knitcrochet/ or http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-embroidered-bits/

Oh guinea pig owner!  I must claim averia for a some fleece guinea pig cozies and fleece guinea pig hammocks.  

2nd claim
1 sent
0 recieved.

Hey there.  I live in the U.S. with my dear hubby, sweet kiddo and a young playful pug.  Allergies are in our house, but shouldnt affect anything sent to us because the allergies are mostly dust, grass, pollen, mold and other outside things.  We do have a cat allergy in the house and sinus issues though, so please no strong smoke smells.  Cat friendly homes can claim us, just please try to limit the cats contact with the items.  Anyways, my crafty skills include crocheting, knitting, embroidery and simple sewing, simple shirt stenciling/screen printing.   I am dabbling in chain mail bracelets now too, but a total newbie in this area.  I had not much interest in jewelry making, but someone on Craftster had to mention chain mail, and I was curious what it was.then.I was like Hey, thats cool.  I bet I could make those for Christmas gifts.  Hmmm  And well, we all know how everyone here on Craftster are good at enabling others to do more crafts.so thats the story.  LOL.

Likes
Themes: 1950s, Harry Potter, Pugs, Video games, Nerdy, Pirates
Colors/patterns:  black/red/white, purple/blue, tan/teal, polka dots, kawaii animals
Others:  Sock yarn, self striping yarn, reading, I love lucy, The big bang theory, handmade ceramic mugs and bowls,

Dislikes  
Themes:  adult, creepy,  
Colors/patterns: orange, yellow, pastel  or neon.  Old grandma floral fabrics, 70s style fabrics, batiks,
Others:  fun fur yarns, strong perfumy scents, lace & frilly things, doilies, puffy paint, glitter, fabric paint that cracks and chips.

Crafted:
If yarn is sent or things made with yarn please make sure its machine washable and dryable.  With two shedding dogs, all things must be washable to help remove their fur.
-Magic yarn ball.
-Scrabble Tile Pillows that spell LOVE.  Im a little picky about these.  I had some that were painted, the paint cracked.  So I would like the Letters to be sewn on the pillows using black felt.  Just the regular machine washable and dryable felt though.  And you dont have to stuff them though, just make them like pillow cases.  The backs can be the pocket fold kind or a zipper closer.
-Jurassic Pug stenciled shirt.  Juniors medium, crew neck in perhaps a heather grey or white. https://www.etsy.com/listing/173745273/jurassic-pug-jumper?ref=sr_gallery_9&ga_search_query=pug&ga_ship_to=US&ga_ref=auto1&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery
-a set of 4 star wars coasters.  Would it be possible to have them made with those absorbant ceremaic tiles?
-Set of 6 Pug coasters using pictures of my own pugs.  Would it be possible to have them made with those absorbant ceremaic tiles?  I need a set of 6 for the kitchen.
-Pug species art.  8x10 or bigger. https://www.etsy.com/listing/153899272/art-print-pug-poster-dog-illustration?ref=sr_gallery_25&ga_search_query=pug&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=6&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery
-pug sculpture https://www.etsy.com/listing/176709729/lucky-pug-foo-dog-sculpture-in-zen?ref=sr_gallery_11&ga_search_query=pug&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=11&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery
-pug profile https://www.etsy.com/listing/106191149/fawn-pug-profile-with-green-background?ref=sr_gallery_29&ga_search_query=pug&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=29&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery
-Set of oven mitts that looks like a shark.  Please make them extra thick to prevent hand burns. http://collisionware.com/sites/default/files/shark%20main.jpg
-Set of oven mitts that look like pugs.  I guess sorta like the shark style ones, but pugs instead of sharks.  Id need a black pug oven mitt and a fawn pug oven mitt.
-Weasley Blanket squares.   For 2014 I am determined to actually make a knit item for myself.  I always knit for others, but never for myself.  Anyways, with that being said, this is a big project, If you would like to help me make my very own Weasley blanket feel free to knit me a square or two or more.  Just please remember to make sure the squares are 7x7 in size, made in worsted weight yarn, and yarn must be machine washable and dryable.  I own pugs and this is necessary to help remove fur from things.  Im guessing acrylic or cotton would be best.  Oh, and nothing itchy please, Im going for soft and cozy.   Anyways, with that being said below is the link with the pattern with the squares.  https://docs.google.com/file/d/1z-P2tmU9T9qh2PvS3IFrc0sw-U7cGI6PZIgFRf_RIVpXvKk94Psb5IS-UsiQ/edit?pli=1
-fabric bins. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279493743477/
-Quilted place mats.  I need a set of 6 for our kitchen table.  Maroon, hunter-ish green, white and black. http://www.needleandspatula.com/2011/06/spicing-up-kitchen-swap-placemats-and.html
-Stripey socks. Womens us size 7.5 http://www.pinterest.com/pin/220606081716634809/
-yarn bowl.  This style is neat.  Color is nice.  Or maybe a black and red one.  Oh yes! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/375135843931909527/
-fox hoodie.  Mens small or juniors large. 
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/530369293590128023/
