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/

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 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.

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.

O XKCD t-shirts (both babies, grownups)

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 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 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

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!

I claim kittykill for an Amigurumi dog (haven't decided which yet)

2 claims/ 1 sent/ 0 received

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!

For my 4-yr-old boy    It's his birthday this month!
- Felt play food (especially a sandwich making set, and/or fruits and veggies)
