Here's my list:
I'm in somewhat chilly, northern California
- Anything from my wists- apparently I love bandwagons Smiley http://www.wists.com/Bobolink
- A swap journal with sections to input info.. like the one in my wists
- T-shirt with a knitting stencil or screen-print
- how to screen print kit (serious long shot I know)
-crochet amigurami animal
-japanese craft books with knitting patterns
-etched glasses
- a resin bracelet- or a how to resin kit
- something with kitchy fifties style embroidery, or sublime stitching- I especially love the sushi ones and the monkey ones.
- needle felting kit
- a forest friends themed painting or drawing- that you made
- a mini shrine
-something with a crow stencil.. I like one where the crow is singing a heart (this is sort of targeted at knottiedotty  )
- I love this clutch too!- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77766.0 especially the brown one
- Cute stuffy with a meat theme.. meat, hot dog, hamburger, bacon etc...
-a stuffy like Kristen81 sent to K8
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77174.110;topicseen
- A hoody (fitted with zipper) with any of my likes
- A vinyl wristlet- I got one already and LOVE it!! So I dedided I need more!!  or anything cool made with vinyl- I love how it looks.
- This is also a hard one, but I love me those meat soaps!
- Something needle felted. I love that technique!
- A journal with mixed color/ patterned paper inside. Like the one fadeawaydreams made I don't need a blank journal for writing, but one like that that I can scrapbook with or use as a knitting journal would be great.
like this one:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=74965.40
I'd really LOVE this one. I just started teaching knitting- and I want to make a journal featuring everyone's first project- cause I'm so proud of them all 
-circle purse with bird themed fabric- or japanese
-bloomers or warm PJ pants
-long loopy necklace
- this is very specific- but 8inch length circular needles size 6-8- I can't find them!!
-Any Jean Greenhowe pattern books- other than Bazaar knits.
-Stuffy yeast (the model organism I work on) I have a great one from Jaami and just bought a Giant Microbes one so I decided I could make a collection. PM me for details specifications, but it will mostly be a white sphere with a smaller sphere budding off of it.

About me: 28  year old grad student who spends way too much time on craftster at my desk, instead of where I should be- at my bench doing experiments. I love all animals and animal motifs. Owls and all birds, forest animals, cats etc.. Nature stuff and city artsy stuff too. I love all colors, but probably bright ones over pastels, but earthy ones are great too especially for a nature theme. I also prefer off colors to primaries- ie turquiose over navy blue. I love any old, vintage, retro and mod looking stuff and patterns- but I really like modern stuff too. I love old vintagy stuff like adds ie- fruit crate labels and pin ups. I love when prissy crafts are mixes with racy stuff ie an embroidered pin up- I think that really represents what us awesome craftsters are up to. I also love food stuff, sushi, meat, sweet stuff etc.. probably cause I love food! And I love japanese and mexicana stuff.
Dislikes- just cut up books, and I really don't need any more journals. I just have too many and I'd hate for you to work on something I just can't use.

okay, i claim bobolink for something (i haven't decided what yet!) with sublime stitching embroidery!

I am in Portland, OR.  This is my first claim this round.

Sewing:

1. A bag like this one:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84722.0
I LOVE it, especially the birdy theme (and size! i have a lot of books so it would need to be large and sturdy).  Maybe in green?  I would love you forever!  Or a tote in the style of this one (Im not such a fan of the fabric): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=83530.0
2. A circle skirt or a similarly non-tight knee-ish length skirt.  PM me for size/colors.
3.  A vinyl tote/large purse/messenger bag with some freestyle sewing-machine embroidery.
4. A belt.  Id like something that can go with lots of different colors (maybe a neutral-y blue or green and white?) and I wear my jeans low on my hips, so PM me for measurements!
5. A nice sturdy grocery tote or two like these: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=47761.0
6. Something for me to carry my lunch in.  Right now I just use paper sacks, which makes me feel very wasteful, and I hate that theyre so noisy and crinkly (I cant sneakily eat snacks!).  PM me for specific size/style.
7. Pajama pants.  I have long legs and I like my pajamas to reach the floor, so its hard for me to find pjs that fit correctly.  Id like a pair in soft colors; flannel would be awesome and so would vertical stripes!
8. Some sort of summery shirt/tank top.  There are a few in my wists that I would love!


Knit/crochet:

1. Amigurumi animal modeled after one of my pets (your pick of cats, dog, or hamster)
2. A headband like this one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=74104.0
3. A knitted cloche hat.  Id love one in olive, cranberry, beige/brown, or a deep reddish orange.  Warm, earthy tones look best on me.  I like this hat:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84722.150 (scroll down)
4. A felted anything.  A felted bag would be neat.  Ooh, or felted beads!

Paper crafts:

1. A swap journal
2. Handmade stationery or notecards with envelopes.  I like the ones at the bottom of this page: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=87532.msg838418#msg838418
3. Paper stars for me to hang in my room like these ones: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=83862.0;topicseen


A DIY kit for any of the following:

1. making paper
2. soapmaking
3. stenciling or screen-printing
4. kanzashi flowers
5. making stuffies!  (please no creepy eyes!)
6. knitting
7. clay beads
8. felted beads/needle felting
or surprise me with a cool DIY craft kit! I love learning how to make new things!

Other:

1. I love this crane necklace: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72997.msg686245;topicseen
2. Teeny little super guy glass: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=86122.0
3. A stenciled/silkscreened shirt or bag.  Things Ive been into lately: birds, cherry blossoms, cats, trees, the phrase cat party, muffins.  PM me if you need more ideas/sizes.
4. These microscope slide pendants are absolutely gorgeous: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84722.from1145839460;topicseen#new (near the bottom of the page)
5. A surprise based on my wists!

Supplies:

1. Im just getting into journal making and I would love some neat paper!  Mostly text-weight or scrapbook paper no cardstock, unless its a really cool pattern.  **If you choose me for this, PLEASE write do not bend on your package!!  My mailman likes to try and cram things into the mailbox**

2. Ephemera!  Especially anything with birds on it; I would be eternally grateful if I received some bird-watching books (or other science-y bird books with small drawings/watercolors of birds) that I could cut up to make pendants with.  Also, anything that will help me getting started making ATCs, which is going to be my next project!

3. I forget the brand, but I would love a stamp pad or two with that one kind of ink that can be used on anything paper, fabric, wood, etc.  **I actually caved and bought myself on of these in black, but I would love any other color!**  Or any other stamping goodies Ive started carving my own stamps, but I only have one (kind of junky) ink pad.

4. I have a beautiful old Singer sewing machine, but Im absolutely terrified of it.  It seems like every time I use it, I manage to mess up the tension or get a big wad of thread stuck coming up from the bobbin.  I would love you forever if you sent me the manual for it (theres an online version similar to mine here: http://www.sewingonline.co.uk/instructions/singer478  -- but I work better with instructions I can hold and touch) or anything to help me overcome my fears and also learn how to deal with common sewing machine problems instead of throwing up my hands in defeat.

5. Anything to help me organize all of my craft junk.  This could be anything from a pretty jar to hold pencils/rulers/scissors to a decoupaged box to a nice big basket/tote for works in progress.  Any organization would seriously help me!

About me: I'm a 19 year old working college student in Portland, Oregon.  Im studying to become a social worker.  I love nature and animals; I have 3 cats, a dog, a hamster, and some fish.  I don't like super flashy things (huge pink flowers.  no) and my favorite colors are green, red, and blue.  I love vintage stuff -- some of my favorite fabrics are 30s style prints.  I also like more modern patterns, like bold stripes and polka dots and there is a special place in my heart for super-cutesy cat prints.

Thank you!!

catpants - I have several singer manuals - can't part with them either, but I could scan and print them out and make you a nice fancy binder. Would that work?

Excellent! then I'm claiming catpants for a sewing manual binder!

It's kinda long so you have plenty to choose from.

This is my first wish this round!

I'm in Los Angeles, California

Here's the list!

Supplies

1. fabrics of any sort see below for colors, for patterns I like floral, asian and geometric
2. knitting needles I have size 10 now, but I want to branch out
3. snaps for cuffs - the kind you hammer in ( not sew in - I have those) but I want to try the hammery ones.
4. Sterling silver jewelry findings (clasps, ear wires, chain, and earring backs)

Crafted stuff

1. Headband and/or scarf in a fabric from list of favorite types.
1a. A PANTA! Black please
3. These earrings: http://www.etsy.com/view_item_sold_anon.php?listing_id=115361&transaction_id=30358
4. Stenciled shirt with a gun (walther ppk-original james bond gun) and flowers (the S.O. knows how to stencil but damn if it's a little too much to get my head around) Women's Medium Please - but must be stretchy as I'm kinda curvy
4a. You would be my best-est friend in the whole world if you made me this dress: http://www.elsewares.com/commerce/Russian-Owl-Dress_MPD302.html but instead of an owl, I want a Walther PPK! My attempt did not work out so well.
5. Cast resin bracelet or necklace with a georgia o'keefe image (flowers not bones) I don't have space/ventilation to cast resin.
5a. A microscope slide necklace with same art or cherry blossoms - similiar to this one that tigergirl made for knottydottie http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84722.msg865869#msg865869 - I lost all my soldering stuff when I moved to LA
6. Any jewelry I'm bored with what I have and the stuff I can make - well bored with that too  Tongue
7. I want a crafty pirate (the one with scissors)! either a pin/button or a charm for my purse.  Darn cafepress for not taking paypal! taking batgirl's lead - I'll donate $$ to craftster if I get this.
8. a totoro hat!! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72078.0
9. Katamari Ball - pin cushion or crocheted magnetic thing. Naaaah na na na na na Kata Mari DAHH MACCYY

Other non crafty stuff

1. A mix CD of electronica/techno/dance/dub/house stuff the noodle princess is sending me a CD but this totally repeatable.
2. A surprise see below for what I like. Yeah!! Thank you!!
3. Hello kitty anything

About me almost 33 y.o. living in Hollywood. I love dogs, anything ultramarine blue or cobalt, computers, technology, the internet, sci-fi, anime, anything Japanese especially hello kitty and san-x. I don't drive, but I take the train to work subways ROCK! I'm pretty girly, but not lacey and froofy, think candy and pink. I love pink too.However, as an aged ex-goth/new wave chic, I'm still addicted to black and all my techno style jewelry (think computer bits and lots of shiny stuff etc). My favorite designer style is Oakley, as in the sunglasses. Dragonflies are my favorite bug, but I'm not a nature girl I love the city pictures of tiny cute animals (like meomi.com) are awesome.  Dress wise, I do conservative but hip for work (I work at an internet company so I can't dress too stuffy) with mostly black, some grey, green, blue, orange, and pink. I'm a t-shirt and jeans girl at home. I hate aquamarine, yellow, and turquoise.
Wow that's long.

Oh and NO Disney related stuff!

ok, I've got animegirlie for jewelry. I don't think you'll have anything like what I'm going to send you!  Grin And I think I've found a way to incorporate the crafty pirate in as well...

This is my second claim this round -- and it's only been open for two days! "Hello, my name is Amanda and I have a swapping problem..." I'm in PA, USA.

List!

Kits
- Drop spinning kit
- Screen printing kit

Supplies
- Hand dyed yarn, or yarn to dye
- supplies for microscope slide necklaces: I have slides, and a soldering gun. I need everything else!
- Japanese fabrics 
- Japanese craft books! I would especially like ones for purses.
- Kimono fabric pieces
- I really like the pink/brown colorway of Richard Kauffman's 'Sakura' fabric
- a bunch of ties
- different colors of roving, to feed my new needle felting addiction, facilitated by batgirl! Thanks, batgirl!
- fabric with retro kitchen-y stuff on it
- sushi fabric with a blue background (I got some in a previous swap from Raindrops, and I'm dying for more) I think it originiated from PinkMafia? PM me for details.

Sewn
- A wallet like NOCHIs: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=86021.0
- A clutch like jasfitzs: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=80122.0
- Smooshyknits Kimono Inspired Needle Roll: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69952.0
- A tie corset belt like RickRackRubys: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=17453.0. PM me for size information.
- A tie purse like this one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45985.0;topicseen
- I really like vinyl, so a vinyl wallet, clutch, or tote bag would be awesome!

Other
- A domokun stuffy (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=87113.msg821124;topicseen#msg821124)
- Blythe clothes and accessories !!   Grin
- Handmade stationery with envelopes
- Anything from my wist (see signature for link)

Im a 21-year-old who will be done with college TODAY (I should be studying, probably, but I'm on craftster instead...)! I've been sewing since I was a little girl, and I also knit, make books, and make jewelry. I love all things Japanese. My favorite color is green. Im not really into pink. I love Domokun, apples and Sailor Jerry!
