I claim grab a coffee! I owe her something from another round, so I might as well add a few more things to her package! Grin

I am thinking that I am going to tackle a pair of those crochet monster slippers!

I get free postage as a job perk, so that is why I am able to claim international a lot... Grin.

 Due June 28

This is my first claim this round!

so, 1/0/0


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, 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 from kittykill and lindy321 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*
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

*NEW*

I sew, but there are some things I just can't seem to get around to!  Microwave bowl holders...potholders...simple, baggylounge pants, size XL or 14...headscarves to wear on my head when I garden...

*NEW*

Fun stuff for my garden...stakes, herb markers, hanging things, birdhouses, art for a lot of outside walls...fairy garden supplies(miniature things!)

A SURPRISE!!

Thanks for claiming me!

I claim BriannaB03 (we have the same name!) for crochet bootcuffs.

1/0/0

Hello, my name is Bree. I identify myself as a mother, graphic designer, and crocheter, but I do much more. I currently reside near St. Louis, MO with my darling 3 year old daughter, Emmalynn, and my boyfriend of 5 years, Randy.

I love geometric shapes and designs, thick stripes, simplicity, and typography.
I love aliens, nudity, and Red Riding Hood.
I love black, mustard yellow, and burnt orange separately.
I love cyan, magenta, yellow, and black together.
I love coffee, hippy, and lavender scents.
I am a leather wearing tomboy with an eclectic, artsy side.

I hate floral, girly, or old timey designs.
I hate pinks, purples, and most blues.
I hate fruit and minty scents.

My daughter is a very typical 3 year old who loves pink, hipster fabric prints (houses, birds, etc), and stuffed animals. She loves playing outdoors, with her dolls, and playing games with mom and dad.

House themes:
Living Room: CMYK, Typography, very graphically inclined.
Bedroom: Scandanavian Theme. Greys, ivories, some blacks.
Office: Geometric styles. Yellow, Orange, Green as primary colors.
Kitchen: Red. Just red, I have no theme yet.

I claim Breegy for a hat! (I haven't decided which yet..)
Due June 28

This is my first claim for this round.

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.

Now if that hasn't scared you off...

I claim  Sylvan for a supply package including hem clips and something else

3nd claim, 1 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 am a huge fan of Loki, 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/

Send by 6/29

2 Claims/0 Sent/0 Received

Hi! I'm Emma, living in Michigan USA right now. I've gotten my BFA in art, and now am biding my time working til I figure out my next move. I love weird, random things, inappropriate humor, and beautiful art. My favorite colors right now are teal, bright red, mossy green, deep blues, and blue-green. 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. My pinterest and profile should give you a good idea of my style and preferences, but I'm super friendly so please feel free to ask me anything. Big wishes are IN BOLD Examples of a lot of the items listed below can be found on my pinterest.


***Sewn/Embroidery Crafts***

an embroidered twinchie (or set) you think I'd like - I think I'm becoming addicted! Check out the Twinchie swap gallery to get an idea of what I mean..

***Yarnie Crafts***

fighting words mitts http://www.pinterest.com/pin/220606081720618647/

flip-top mittens with a thumb - scrappy is totally cool, or a fun pattern (I think there's some that don't have thumbs but my poor thumb gets cold Smiley)

scrappy socks (mid calf length would be great) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/445926800575268626/

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE some sort of art that could be hung on the wall like MissingWillow's mousetrap death scene! Doesn't have to be the same kind of scene, but using small model figures in a funny scene sort of thing.
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/220606081721756495/

Mt. Dew wreath http://www.pinterest.com/pin/220606081720618601/

I claim sheepBlue for an art item of some sort.

2nd claim / 0 sent / 0 received

Hello, I’m Kirsten, I live in New Zealand.

I love art and I like to do drawing, painting and printmaking, as well as sewing, knitting and embroidery, but I haven’t done much in recent months. My job can be quite intense so I’m feeling a need to balance it with more creative time.

Colours: particularly blue/green/teal/aqua, natural tones, greys, or black and white; not so keen on pastels and pinks/purples (though dusty/dull shades can be nice).
Metals: silver, copper or antiqued finishes.
Fabrics: plainish and textured rather than very patterned. Natural linen, monochromatic prints rather than very multi-coloured. Some styles I particularly like are mid-century modern, Scandinavian, Japanese (but not kawaii). I really like the combination of natural linen and bright fabrics.

I don’t have any allergies. I prefer natural fibres, but not exclusively.

I tend to like simple and arty things, I don’t really like very cutesy or girly things much. The things on my Pinterest boards will give you a good idea of the sorts of things I like. I’d rather have things that are “inspired by” than exact copies – it’s great if you can put your own creative spin on what you make! pinterest

Big wishes in bold (if that's helpful), but anything on the list is welcome. I love surprises too, but because I live in an apartment, please make it something that has a function rather than a purely decorative item. Thank you!!


CRAFTS

SEWN
* set of placemats and/or table napkins – machine washable please.
* a pockety project bag – I always have several projects on the go, different styles and sizes all welcome
* organiser things (e.g. project holder, thing for storing small supplies and bits) any size. Some ideas on pinterest, but other styles are good too.
* one of those fabric covered cord bowls
* fabric buckets/boxes – I like them quite big (grocery bag size, or even bigger), but you don't need to put interfacing or padding/batting in them, so they can fold up flat for easy posting. They don't need to be fancy, plain and sturdy is fine. Short handles are useful, but not essential. Small size is good too if that’s easier.
* cushion covers - no need to send the inner, just mail unstuffed for easy postage. I could really use some nice, durable cushion covers in natural linen colour, cream, or rust. Standard square size is good (e.g. 40cm x 40cm) with a zipper or button closure. Maybe a couple of plain ones or one decorated one would be a medium claim?
* paint brush/art tools roll or folder/holder thing
* mug rug
* tissue box cover (standard rectangular, not square), natural linen colour or black and white would be best. Or nice greens.


YARN/FELT RELATED
* hand dyed or hand spun yarn
* if you’re interested in knitting something, these are some things I want in my ravelry faves (I don’t necessarily want all the other things in my ravelry faves though) – ravelry wants – there are some smaller things like hats and mitts in there, and a couple of crochet things too ( crochet things). Some good colours for knits – teal blue, dull greyish rose, chartreuse, rich or dull red (not too orange-y or dark please), blue-ish purple. I like solid colours rather than variegated yarn.


PAPER RELATED
* stationery – notecards or paper, it’s all good (bonus points for Star Trek or Dr Who theme!)


OTHER CRAFTS
* airbrushed art on fabric - on a plain piece of fabric for me to make something with - dalek, retro sci-fi, robot army
* handmade ceramic item, esp. in celadon green (but any colours are good) – coffee mug, little bowl, something useful
* polyclay or ceramic buttons - a variety of sizes/colours/textures would be great!


VARIOUS CRAFTY POSSIBILITIES

* a Miniature Tiger Monkey. (This imaginary creature has been the subject of several conversations in my household. Apparently they move extremely fast, so fast in fact that no one has ever seen one. And they are very small.  I would really like to see what they might look like Wink)
* a Star Trek or Doctor Who thingy, whatever you like to make, my faves are Spock, tardis and daleks. (Useful rather than decorative is usually my preference, but any Spock, tardis, or dalek item that lands in my letterbox will find a home). Some ideas – Tardis journal; daleks on anything; Spock stationery, journal.
* things to put other things in – box, organiser, project holder, stationery folder etc. – always welcome I could use some nice things for my desk at work.
* protective folder to store artwork in – A4 or A3 would be great

* or a pinterest-inspired surprise


CRAFT SUPPLIES

* interesting embroidery supplies (please stick with quality over quantity, I’d much rather have a tiny envelope with a few lovely skeins/little things than lots of cheap floss/beads, and it's also cheaper for postage!) The sort of stuff I like is DMC, anything silk or linen, Au Ver à Soie (lurve!), Japanese stuff, bits for goldwork (purl, kid, etc.), handmade/hand dyed, quirky things. Vintage/second hand is fine.  No Aida please.
* Noro yarn (especially Taiyo, especially greens or blues/purples), other silk/luxury yarn (I have a great local source for good plain wool yarns, so while I love that too, it’s not worth you mailing it to me Smiley)
* nice cotton or linen fat quarters or fat eighths
* nice paper - e.g handmade, japanese, printmaking, watercolour, textured, any colour or weight - it's for art and printmaking, so plain rather than patterned is best.
* small art supplies items:-
     - pencils, markers and pens (Prismacolor/Derwent/Caran D'Ache/Posca for example, or similar artist grade things – think quality rather than quantity, just a few nice things would be fab! and cheap to mail). Derwent Inktense pencils/sticks.
     - peel and sketch charcoal pencils
     - drypoint etching supplies (plastic for etching)
     - inkpads, little stencils, stamps, etc.
     - MaimeriBlu watercolours – oh how I want some more of these, and no one stocks them here Sad
* thick stampcarving material
* 100% wool felt, or eco felt <– I’ve never seen eco felt available here (I have stacks of ordinary synthetic felt already though) – in charcoal grey, blues, or greens
* DMC StitchBow floss holders - just the gold coloured sticks (I have plenty of the plastic pockets to put them in) – I always need these!
* plain linen or wool fabric (natural, grey, green, blue)
* crafty magazines – Burda or Anna (either English or German), Vogue Knitting, Verena, or any awesome US sewing/knitting mags.

EXTRAS
* I love vintage/interesting buttons, ribbons, cord etc.
* no candy (it’s too expensive to mail, and I really don't need it!)


NB. New Zealand has tough biosecurity at the border. This is very unlikely to apply to this swap, but just in case ... Please don’t send natural materials (feathers, leaves, wood, seeds e.g. lavender, etc.) Everything on my list is absolutely fine to send, but PM me if you’re unsure about something. Thanks  Smiley

I claim  Grab a coffee for a supply package including Sharpies and white pens (since ya know already sending one package, might as well send 2 together)

4th claim, 1 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 am a huge fan of Loki, 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/

Anything on my blue and white board is fair game too http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/blue-white/  or really any board... I'm good with pinterest surprises.

Big Wish: anything for the kitchen (we are getting a new kitchen at end of June/beginning of July) in the way of quilted potholders, embellished towels, cotton knit towels, crocheted or sewn hot pads, dish cloths, scrubbies, crocheted bowls, sewn bowls, placemats, coasters, fabric baskets, mug rugs, wall art... whatever you might like in your own kitchen. The color scheme is going to be blue and white (I hope that didn't shock anyone)

I claim Averia.  Probably for something blue and white.. Grin.

This is my 2nd claim this round...and since I have the yarn out, it will probably be something knitted or crocheted...not sure yet...I'll narrow it down soon...

I might have to deliver it personally since she lives close by... Grin.

Due June 30th

so, 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, 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 from kittykill and lindy321 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*
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

*NEW*

I sew, but there are some things I just can't seem to get around to!  Microwave bowl holders...potholder s...simple, baggylounge pants, size XL or 14...headscarves to wear on my head when I garden...

*NEW*

Fun stuff for my garden...stakes, herb markers, hanging things, birdhouses, art for a lot of outside walls...fairy garden supplies(miniature things!)

A SURPRISE!!

Thanks for claiming me!
