I'm from Illinois, USA.

1. A Surprise for my birthday!  My birthday is May 1st (today!! yay)  I'm turing 26

2. 1. An Amigurumi or knit or crochet cat or hello kitty.  Examples: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=40062.60 (page 7), http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84391.10 (page2), http://photo.163.com/openalbum.php?username=shh114&_dir=%2F17596530

3. Something embroidered.  "his" and "hers" pillow cases or something like that would be neat.  Maybe featuring our likes, mine is cats, sewing, etc. his is baseball, cubs, etc.   Just an idea, I would love anything embroidered since I suck at it!

About me:  I just turned 26.  I work as an engineer and I'm getting married in September.  So alot of my free time is going toward wedding planning.  My favorite colors are purple, pink, blue, and red.  Least favorite are orange and navy blue.  I love to sew and do cross stitch.  I like animals and cats are my absolute favorite!  I love hello kitty.  I like fun necklaces that I can wear to work.

Thanks to anyone that picks me!!

Hi Guys, I'm from Sheffield in the great count(r)y of Yorkshire in England.

Wish 1: Dread accessories of any kind. I wear synthetic dread extensions (blonde, red, brown and black).

Wish 2: The Convertible. I desperately need something flexible to wear with the changable weather.

Wish 3: Craft starter kit- beading, papercrafts, soap or crochet, I don't have a clue about any of those. Teach me!

About Me: I'm 23, a graphic designer and a 'goth'. I like dark colours but I also have a sick and twisted love of combining Hot Pink with Bright Turquoise. I hate yellow and orange. I'm obsessed with mermaids, fairies, Gary Numan, Cruxshadows and Phantom of the Opera. PM me or visit my DevArt for more info- http://phantoms-siren.deviantart.com/

My 3 wishes are;

1.  A crochet hook roll.
I have a few Brittany hooks, so they are longer than my standard hooks, they are also a bit wider. Any roll would be excellent. Some features that I would really love (but aren't necessary!) are a top flap, so they don't slip out, a pocket/zipper pocket for scissors, pencil, plastic needles, stitch markers, etc...  Any questions feel free to pm me.

2. Soft knit socks
I'm sure this is probably completely unlikely, but I'd love you forever. I can't knit, and I would absolutely love a super soft pair of knit socks. Especially soft ones. I wear a size 8 US shoe. My calves are a tiny bit larger than average, if you need measurements, pm me.

3. A Surprise- From My Wistlist or here are other suggestions or anything you think I'd like
 My kitchen is decorated in Kitchy Halloween theme (I have Halloween pinups for curtains, etc...) My kitchen colors are blue, orange and black, so anything for that. I also go to different Haunt conventions through the summer, so something I can wear or use for those would be wonderful. A bag/purse, or a decorated shirt size 3X, hair clips, or anything you can think of that would be fun and sort of Halloween themed. My bathroom is grey and purple faeries, so something for that.
Thanks lauriemk

A bit about me. I'm 28, married, I have 3 boys, I also have custody of my little niece right now. I love Halloween, as you can probably tell from above. My husband and I make different props for local haunted houses. I also enjoy making costumes.
My favorite colors are grey and soft purple together. I also like brown, orange, black, muted greens, and any shade of purple except bright standard purple. I don't really care for bright colors or neon colors. I am not a huge fan of big geometric shaped patterns. I'm pretty easy to please.

Thanks in advance for anyone who picks me!

Hello! I'm in Ohio, USA

1. A sleep mask (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24227). I sleep with one so that I don't wake up with a migraine, and my current stolen-from-an-overseas-flight mask is getting worn out. Thanks Drea4545!  Grin

2. A crochet hook roll in a cute fabric. I have everything from super tiny to size Q hooks.

3. random squares of funky and/or vintage fabric. When I move (hopefully in 2 months or so) I want to make some wall art by stretching fabric in embroidery hoops and hanging them on the wall. I don't sew though, so I don't have any fabric scraps laying around. None of them would be more than 12" hoops, so any square pieces up to 13" or so would work fine. If you wanted to donate some embroidery hoops (just the plain wooden ones) as well, that would be great  Wink

For all of these, I am a big fan of most vintage and retro fabrics, as well as bold patterns. I am not usually into pastels or "delicate" patterns, and my favorite colors are blues, reds, and greens.

Hello, thanks for reading my listy Smiley I live in Windsor, England.

My wishes:

1. Anything from or inspired by my wist: www.wists.com/rosali

2. A homemade bath/beauty type thing - like a lipbalm - I'm a sucker for anything that smells yummy but I'm not a girly-girl so don't tend to have any nice products in my bathroom cabinet.

3. Fabric to make a wrap top (enough for a US sz8) as I'm dying to make one but can never find the material to do it. Or if you actually made me one that'd be extra fantastic as then I couldn't mess it up  Cheesy

A bit about me: My favourite colour is green. I tend to wear mainly dark shades; black browns, teal, navy, greens as I have dark colouring and look crazy in bright pink or yellow! I'm 21 and live with my ma, pa brother and our two kittens close to London. I have a wist and blog (links at the bottom of my posts) which give more info about me and my ways!

Be what you would seem to be - or, if you'd like it put more simply - never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.

my wishes are:

1- hand dyed and/or hand spun yarn

2- cute fabric (i love retro prints, ethnic fabrics, and mod prints)   

3- knit or crochet waist cincher.. (i like the one in knitty but in black - http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer04/PATTbetty.html)

a little about me:
I'm 24.  I am a webdesigner that's in the process of switching over to teaching.  I love kitties and tiny dogs (chihuahuas, daschunds, pugs, etc).  I have 3 cats.. (no dogs tho'.. hubby says we don't have space   lol)  My crafting addictions are loom knitting, jewelry making, sewing, cooking, and embroidery.  My style is pretty eclectic.. one day i'm punk/rockabilly.. the next i'm scene-ish.. then i delve into a little bit of boho..  My fav. color combos are black or brown with pale colors.  I love olive/lime greens, turquise, fuchsia, & light pink.  As far as houseware type things go, my house is decorated in reds & yellows with blue and black accents.  I'm pretty easy to please.  Big huge thanks to anyone that chooses me!    I love getting suprises in the mail!

Hi, I'm from NY, USA

my wishlist:

1- Supplies- fabric, belt buckles, paper, yarn, paint, glue, ribbon, thread, buttons, anything and everything  Grin  Thank you so much jaami!!!

2- A wallet for the summer. I love this one:
The fabric and style is perfect.

Thank you in advance to anyone who picks me!

About me: I'm 22 and I'm going for my masters in early education since I want to become an elementary school teacher. I work at a daycare center in a classroom filled with four year olds. I love to knit [beginner], crochet, cook, and sew. I want to broaden my crafting horizons though so I want to learn some new things. I love dark gem-like colors, especially blues, plums, and reds.  I'm a simple girly-girl. I think this picture best sums up my style: http://static.flickr.com/31/63660763_ae87a69fec.jpg?v=0

Im in the USA (Utah)

1 Stickers. I love stickers!!  Id esp. love some little (around inch) music notes (I need them for some little marble magnets I'm making) but Id love any stickers really.  However, please keep it PG rated as I have little kids that like to break into share my sticker stash. Thank you Ember77!!!

2 Pencil Case.  Id prefer a hard case because I love regular pencils (you know the ones you have to sharpen).  Right now I just throw them in my bag but the tips keep breaking off. Angry

3 A Surprise!

I am a 20 year old little kid. Cheesy  I love cartoons, coloring, finger painting, turtles and frogs.  Recently Ive become enamored w/regular pencils (so many cute patterned ones!!).  I collect buttons, coasters, board games (always looking for interesting ones), and interesting pens (I adore this kind).  My favorite colors are blues and greens and lately I love yellow and orange as well.  There's more about me in the Pen Pal Thread and the Unconditional Swaps for April, and March.  You also might be able to get a feel for my taste from my Wist or my blog (the blog is quite new and doesn't have a ton of stuff on it yet but it may help).

Thanks for reading!!
