Please bookmark this thread and/or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.

How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!

Try to imagine a chain.  The first link is the first person whose wish list is on page 1 (Person A) - that will be the craftster member who was the very last wish list from previous month's swap.

Someone (Person B) will claim Person A for some item on their wish list.  They post a reply to the thread that says “I claim Person A for [item].  This is my X claim (however many times they have picked someone – for example, "this is my fourth wish, with one sent, and three received,” (meaning that this is the fourth claim they've made, one is in transit to it's destination, and three of the items have been received by the people they previously claimed).  Also add your location, and any preferences or aversions – “I live in Wisconsin USA, I am a vegetarian, and I am allergic to wool”.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!  This means you need to post who you are claiming and for what, how many claims you have made, including how many in transit and how many received, and your location/preferences/aversions.

Then comes the fun part!  After the introduction, Person B is the last link in the chain, and they post their wish list!!!  YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF SIX.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.

(Please have your list ready, this swap can move quickly!  Please include your country at the start of your wish list). Person B will also PM Person A to get her address so they can mail the item when it is finished.   

Along comes Person C, who claims Person B for something on their list and the chain is built, link by link.  (If Person C wanted to make Person B a purse AND a stuffie, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  Then they post their list, and so on.

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.

Friends of Craftster are allowed 3 wishes at one time, others are allowed 2 wishes.  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish until your craft is received.  Do not choose over your given limit.
Become a Friend of Craftster!  Go here: https://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php (https://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php)

If you are at your limit of wishes, you can choose again once one of your partners receives, NOT when you send.
***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***

Let's keep the quality high here. I don't want to receive PMs with people concerned over the lack of quality of their items.  Please, just work your hardest to keep the bar high on the quality of items here!  Don't choose just for the sake of choosing; choose to make someone else a really AWESOME wish!

Now if the thread gets in a rut for a few days/hours, the person who made the last wish should add to their list if they can think of anything else, until someone decides to craft for them.
Unsure of where to find wish ideas?  Try the previous ongoing wish swap galleries or any other gallery on craftster.  Look through your fellow crafter’s wist lists.

Sending/Communicating/Feedback:
YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR.

Please be communicative if you are having any issues. If you communicate you still need to send your item in a timely manner.  Communication does not mean you can send as late as you want.  After one week past the deadline you will have negative feedback.  This is only temporary as it will be changed back once you fulfill your obligation for late item(s).  Do not choose to craft an item if you do not think you can meet these deadlines.

THERE WILL BE FEEDBACK FOR THIS SWAP
I will be giving feedback in the following way:
-  great swapper: for those who follow all the rules
-  good/poor communication:  where applicable
-  sent late/early: where applicable
-  no dc number: failed to comply with the rule about using a delivery confirmation number for packages within your own country
- didn't post pictures: failed to post pictures of what they received without an adequate explanation to their partner

A gentle reminder..
This thread is for posting up your lists -Let's all try to keep the chit chat to a minimun on this board - not because I am antisocial. I am longwinded actually.  It is just hard to see who's list is up - each message makes the last list that much further away - and thus more difficult to locate.  Let's all try and keep it as easy as possible!  Pm someone to ask questions and thank them - you gotta send them your address anyway!

Please pm craftydeb and SevsOnlyGirl with your dc# and/or customs numbers so we can get you updated - SevsOnlyGirl is also an organizer!!

Please remember to put your I claim ____ for _____ this is my (1st,2nd,3rd) claim... in your claiming! 

Most of all - have fun!

Please bookmark this thread as chitchat is really being discouraged.  I want to keep the thread nice and clean - a gallery will be up shortly too!  I want to keep the thread as easy to follow as possible to make it run nice and smoothly!  (and yes, I know I have been one of those culprits in the past but I really want to make a clean start on this one)
that also includes the I would pick you but I can't... it makes the person's list that much farther back for people to have to figure out who they can pick from...

this little soapbox will be edited out once the first list is posted and then the claiming can begin!



On this very night...
10 years ago...
along the same stretch of road...
in a dense fog...
just like this...
I saw the worst accident I ever seen...
There was this sound...
Like a garbage truck!
Dropped off the empire state building!
And when they finally pulled the driver's body...
From the Twisted... Burning... Wreck...
It looked like...
THIS!!!!!!
hooo hooo hooo hooo hooo haaaah!

Yes sir...
That was the worst accident I ever seen...



The amazing Dulcinea is going to post up the last person to grace OWS17 for me ... since she is going to play taxi driver tonight (no not in a Robert di Niro kind of a way... more like you better clean your room tomorrow since I am doing this... kind of a way...!)

A huuuuge hug for D for running an amazing 2 months of OWS.  I hope to be able to fill those shoes at least a little bit!

Yarn like this:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72581.0

Any hand-spun yarn

Any hand-died yarn

Any knitting supplies (needles, left-over yarn that you might have, stitch markers, stitch holders, etc)

Any sort of DIY-kit, especially for bath bombs, soaps, lotions, lip balm, reisin (sp?), but really anything...I pretty much only know how to knit and sew.

Anything having to do with "The Wizard of Oz" (my favorite movie)

A college care package with food (ramen noodles, kool aid, rice-a-roni, snacks, tea, coffee, etc).

Anything with Western Michigan University on it (my school)

Any craft supplies that you are dying to get rid of...thread, zippers, ribbon, yarn, needles, fabric, whatever!

Felt Monster(s)

I badly need a clock in my apartment

I would love a crochet scarf or hat since I don't know how to crochet...or a knit scarf or hat or mittens would be cool too. Thanks, dontlookback!! (Though if anyone wants to make me another scarf or hat, that would be awesome too!)

Your old issues of crafting magazines that are just sitting around

I would also really love to try some new teas...I mostly only drink...lipton...cause I am poor. Haha!

A Surprise

Any original artwork or photography to hang on my walls in my apartmenr (I have white blank walls...boring!)

A tote bag to carry my knitting in

A new pillowcase, maybe with some cool quote embroydered on the hem or a quilted pillowcase, or even one made of cool fabric

Most of the things I like are on my wist...so check that out.  Smiley

Thanks in advance to anyone who chooses me!!

-Swap Journal. I would really love to get one.
-Wallet with pockets for coins and cards

My name is Heini. I'm 26 and live in Finland with my boyfriend and two cats. My favourite colours are black and red. Generally I like dark colours and I don't like yellow or pastels.

I claim Heini for a wisty surprise.

This is my first claim this round, and I live in Wisconsin, USA.

wish list!

handspun yarn - any color, any weight, as long as it's enough to make something out of it

hand painted yarn - do you love to Kool-Aid dye?  i'm in an apartment, and I'm massively afraid to try it here... so if you love to dye the yarn (specially the painted technique) and wanted to send the results, I'd probably be your best friend for life!

felting yarn - bright colors, reds, burgundy, blues are favorites

squares to make a quilt - 6" x 6", please.  I'll piece everything together (and post the results).

Unusual writing weapons... i mean, i don't want it to leak all over my purse, but if you had working fountain pens that you just don't use anymore, I'd be delighted to put them back to work!

almost anything mickey mouse (but not minnie mouse or other characters, please)

anything to decorate my BR - colors are off white, sea-foam green, ocean shades through to a toasty light brown

squares to make an afghan -  6" x 6", I think.  I decided I wanted a new afghan, so if you wanted to use up stash, I'll put them all together

ribbons - anything bright color or sparkly - maybe about an inch, inch and a half wide?  we use them to patch jeans, and for piecing together parts for other projects

grab bag/box of assorted craft supplies - ribbon, cool buttons, fat quarters, different color spools of thread - pretty much anything you have too much of and want to pass along, I just cleaned out my sewing box from all the mess, and it's looking really empty!

felted case for my digital camera - so i don't scratch the screen - PM for dimensions.

Anything Philadelphia eagles football for my son, who loves them

long-shots - I could really use some trousers and/or button down shirts for work - PM for sizing

turtleneck shirts for winter - almost anything, I live in them in the wintertime - PM for sizing

a bubba*tink style wallet - need LOTS of spaces for cards, since I have every rewards type card known to mankind

Address labels, for sending out all our packages - PM for details << I got some from ReneeCarol, but need more!

Notecards for enclosing in my packages << I'm getting some in the December wishlist but go through a lot of these!

... right... about me.  I'm the old lady in the crowd, the one peering over the bifocals.  I have 2 teenagers, and my day job is a computer programmer.  I have no allergies, no issues with animal products, would prefer to avoid religion/religion articles and politics at all costs.... my favorite colors are the jewel tones, think ruby, sapphire, emerald... i don't do terribly well with pastels.  We live in an apartment, where space is always at a premium... so small things that sit on tables and shelves isn't a great thing here.

Thanks in advance to anyone who chooses me

About me......
I am 31, live in Massachusetts, travel a lot for work around the world (it is fun, but gets a little lonely in certain parts of the country where i don't know anyone), and i have 3 little doggies that i adore more than life itself. I love tattoos, mexicana, low brow art, vegas style stuff ( i collect anthing dice and playing card related). I volunteer for a small dog rescue which has been an amazing experience, so for those with doggies, you are instantly my friend.  I manage bands on the side, mostly metal and screamo type stuff which is totally fun. I like the heavier side of music but am known to listen to a lot of other types due to being bombarded by bands all the time. I work for an artist who is on the opposite side of the spectrum in terms of style that I like, but he has given me 13 years of opportunities and happiness for the most part so I am grateful no matter what people say about him......
Other than that I just try to enjoy making crafts, especially new challenges and have fun creating! I have met so many wonderful people swapping and that for me is the best part at the end of the day. Due to the travel I have been able to meet a couple of the girls in person which is totally awesome! Thanks for looking at my list and feel free to ask any questions! Rock on!

 ;D



I CLAIM XLADYLUCKX!!!   yes!  leah, i love you!

alright, so i claim xladyluckx for a picture for her dining room, framed and everything. this is my first claim. i am in wisconsin, USA. I am fifteen.  i do a lot of stuff, and right now im totalllllly into alternative styles.

list in a moment, just gotta dig it out of OWS17

patches and small bits of crazy fabric and ribbons to patch up my jeans.   i finally found ones that fit perfect, but they only come in the destructo style...so i just bought a pair, and im going to start patching them.   and my older pair of them.  and a few other pairs of jeans that are falling apart...pretty much i need patches!

roving--for my new love of spinning!

winter atire, its cold here!

local indie music to your area...think motion city soundtrack, the matches, the shins anything along those lines, or funkier stuff like the pogues, flogging molly or gogol bordello...or ska! i miss ska!

anything mickey mouse for mom((but no other characters please)),
anything philidelphia eagles for 12 year old brother...

a new copy of SNBNation...mine is falling apart more and more day by day.

any other knitting or crochet books that would be considdered new or hip((but i just bought domiknitrix's book))

a dia de los meurtos style skull anything...i adore pins and brooches, but something unique like the case on my wist would be awesome.  i think the original purpose for it was a tarot card case, but if it could be a little bit bigger than tarot cards ((maybe four inches on the long end)) that would be great

a cool lighter casing made from metal or some other super strong material.  im into gothic type floral designs and anything day of the dead, as well as cutesy stuff like hello kitty, etc

I'd like to claim Devilninny for
- a runner type cover for the top of the dresser.  PM me for measurements.  our room is done in reds and browns and something reversible would be amazing.

Since she's such a love, there will be some surprise in there for her as well.

Here's my wishlist. I noticed a few people have broken down their lists and it helps me when selecting a person to craft for, so here goes:


Supplies:
-Vintage / retro floral fabric (I'd prefer no smaller than FQ size)
-Ring blanks
-Memory wire bracelet kit
-Wool felt / roving
-Japanese cotton magazine. I don't need the entire mag, but photocopies or scans of some projects
-dish towels - vintage inspired


Knitted / Crocheted:

Post by: gavagai on January 03, 2007 09:02:03 AM
I claim la_chrystelle, probably for "fabrics with colorfull flowery prints or japanese/kimono flowering fabric", but I haven't quite decided yet.

I'm 30 years old, work as a philosophy/psychology teacher, live with my boyfriend and four teletubbies ( ;D) in Uppsala, Sweden. And I wish for...

Craft supplies:

Soldering/Microscope slide pendant kit (never tried before)

Shrinky dinks for inkjet printer and/or strange colour shrinky dinks (I think there is a black kind)

Material for printing (water-proof) on fabric (bubble jet set?)

Crafting/Sewing themed metal charms (like scissors or something, to be used for making jewelry)

Silver plated chain to make necklaces and other jewelry

Bigger glass beads (more than 5 mm diameter)

Funny looking/funny shaped glass beads

thread and yarn: polyester thread for sewing machine/soft, fun yarn for my new hobby crocheting

Bookbinding kit (never tried before)

Kit for making animals and other creatures/decoration from beads, things like these: http://www.beadjewelrymaking.com/browse_all.html but maybe not too complex ones to start with, since I’m a beginner.

A kit for some kind of craft I haven't tried yet. Feel free to PM me about that.

Glass marbles, especially of this shape:
http://www.wholesalersusainc.com/glass-squares-clear-3x3x1cm-p-702.html
The squares, rectangles and circles with holes in them on the same site are also interesting, and coloured square marbles also... Just different shaped glass thingies to put pictures behind really... and/or coloured ones for rings:
http://www.plainmabel.com/ckshop.php?item=1168&ret=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.plainmabel.com%2Fckshop.php%3Fpage%3D1%26category%3D4




Crafted things:

Large calendar (to hang on the wall) with squares for each day where you have room to write something. Themes could be geometrical shapes/modern art, the teletubbies, crafting, black and white... or look to my wists for ideas.

Simple knitted cardigan (fitted, is that the word?) preferably in black or greyscale colours.

Messenger bag, preferably with zipper and pockets, so that I don't get pickpocked (is that a word?  :D)

Knitted things, since I don't knit (yet). See my wists for example of things I like.



Other

Craft books/magazines with fun new projects (not too traditional stuff) (in English or possibly German (well, Swedish is o.k. as well  :D))



And of course anything from my evergrowing wist. http://www.wists.com/gavagai


General note: No batik please.

Post by: Samsara on January 03, 2007 09:52:21 AM
This is my first wish this round and I'm in the UK.

My Wish list

Ethical & Allergies - I’m a vegetarian, so no animal products please (wool's okay, but leather, fur, suede or gelatine aren't!) I’m also allergic to nickel and some perfumes.
 
Jewellery
I would love a LOTR inspired Elven head-dress like the ones Arwen or Galadriel wear! (Okay, I can hope, can’t I?) Or any sort of Elven inspired jewellery?
(I’m allergic to Nickel though!)

Knitted and Crocheted
Ron’s Animal Crackers Hat - http://www.woolgathering.net/archives/cat_rons_animal_crackers_hat.html
I think it has pigtails/braids and a tassel!

Arigurumis – I would absolutely LOVE a Captain Jack Arigurumi!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=104545.0
*sigh* If I can’t get Johnny Depp into my bed, I’ll make do with Jack Sparrow!!  ;)

Hand knitted socks. I love hand-painted yarns, purples, jewel colours and rainbows! (I’m a UK size 4)
 
A fiber necklace like the ones from Enchanted earth! http://www.jade.enthuzed.net/11.htm
I love ‘Truffles’ and ‘Autumn Leaf’, actually, I love ‘em all!!

Sewn
A pair of Indian inspired or patchwork pillow cases in purple please.

A dragon, cat, dragonfly or owl hoodie!

A kimono hoodie – This one’s pretty cool!
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=138494.new#new

A black wrap dress.

A long hippy skirt!

Some washable cloth pads, with maybe a travel purse with dirty/clean compartments please? (I gave up buying disposable pads and tampons last year and I’ve never looked back. My body feels so much healthier!)

A sewing bag like this in purple? I desperately need something to carry sewing projects round in!
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73010.0

Artwork
I’d love a piece of Celtic artwork in purple for my living room wall. I don’t mind whether it’s a wall hanging or a picture!

DIY Kits
Needle felting…I’ve tried wet felting, but never needle felting! I’d love to have a go!

Resin casting…I’ve never tried it and would love to! I can’t get the stuff round here!

Lino cutting

Supplies
Interesting material. The most exiting material I can find round here is sari material, which is pretty, but not practical for a lot of things!

Some un-dyed wool yarn for dying (I got Kool-aid and I know how to use it! Unfortunately, I can’t find anything to use it on! *lol*)

Nickel-free or low-nickel coloured wire, preferable gauge 20 or higher (thicker stuff please) I can only get gold or silver-tone wire in my town!

Japanese craft books or magazines.

Anything from/inspired by my wists http://www.wists.com/Samsara

About me

I’m a 38, I’m an art and pottery teacher, and I live in the UK with my BF, 3 cats and a german shepherd dog. I’m basically a hippy-chick, my favourite colours are purple, black, and emerald green, although any strong colours are also cool especially rainbows (I don’t like pastels and I can’t wear yellows, or yellow based browns or oranges as they really don’t suit me!) Also I'm not keen on floral fabrics, unless they're oriental or trippy hippy, or if they’re appliquéd onto something else – I’m really into appliqué at the moment! I love batiks, Indian fabrics and tie dyes. I enjoy yoga, reading and crafting, particularly new crafts! Favourite themes are cats, dragons, nature, trees, anything Celtic or Art-Nouveau, sci-fi and fantasy books and films.

I’ve included my Wists, but don’t feel obliged to produce exact copies, they’re more a general guideline of what I like or would like!
Here’s some extra information about me if you want! http://samsarasswapinfo.blogspot.com/  

Thanks in advance for choosing me!!

I would like to claim Samsara for a "pond" bracelet based on your wists, or maybe something else depending on whether you like jingly charm bracelets.

1. Pajama pants for my boyfriend, in flannel or cotton prints.  He’s a real Boy’s Own type, so things like fighter planes, boats, firemen, cowboys, etc.  I have listed some fabrics below that I think he might like:

http://www.equilter.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/st_prod.html?p_prodid=46029&sid=31U9Hz1Vg0CX3Vj-34106016950.e0

PM me for measurements.

2. And a pair for me!  I have a fabric wist at www.wists.com/esmereldafabrics , and again, flannel or cotton only please.  Alternatively, see below for likes and dislikes

3. Jewellry findings (especially those french hooks for earrings) and beads for jewellry making.

4. A copy of Knitscene – either Autumn 2006 or Spring 2007, or, you know, both if you're feeling generous!!

5. A copy of Vogue Knitting Spring 2007

6. Amigurumi patterns

7. Hobbes – Looooooove!!!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=113448.0.  Any variation of this would be cool - amigurumi, felt stuffy, anything!  I love Hobbes!

8. Scrapbooking supplies – papers, glues, pens, inks, brads, anything really!!

9. Fabric – anything cool, I don’t sew much, but I do hoard fabric!!

10. A bracelet inspired by this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=114722.msg1096139#msg1096139

11. A jewellry box (you can recon a second hand one, I don't mind).  At the moment my jewellry sits in a sad little cardboard box on my bedside table.

12. A water bottle (preferably a metal one, but again please recon a second hand one).  We have a water fountain at work and at the moment I refil a plastic bottle to hold my water, but I worry about chemicals leaching into the water.  So one like this: http://www.adventureshop.co.uk/acatalog/Sigg_Adventure_Traveller_Classic.html, but with a crafty touch would be cool!

thanks in advance to anyone who picks me!  About me: I am 25, and live in London with my boyfriend of three years.  My favourite things include: summer days in the long grass, the night sky, snow, the stillness and the turbulence of the ocean.  Favourite themes include Christmas (forget Christmas in July, I love it all year round!); the ocean; birds, trees and forest animals; pirates; and stars.  My favourite colours are blues, greens, reds, purples, and browns, and I prefer rich, jewel shades, to brights.  I don't like neons or pastels!

Thanks again, guys!

My Wish list

Ethical & Allergies - I’m a vegetarian, so no animal products please (wool's okay, but leather, fur, suede or gelatine aren't!) I’m also allergic to nickel and some perfumes.
 
Jewellery
I would love a LOTR inspired Elven head-dress like the ones Arwen or Galadriel wear! (Okay, I can hope, can’t I?) Or any sort of Elven inspired jewellery?
(I’m allergic to Nickel though!)

Knitted and Crocheted
Ron’s Animal Crackers Hat - http://www.woolgathering.net/archives/cat_rons_animal_crackers_hat.html
I think it has pigtails/braids and a tassel!

Arigurumis – I would absolutely LOVE a Captain Jack Arigurumi!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=104545.0
*sigh* If I can’t get Johnny Depp into my bed, I’ll make do with Jack Sparrow!!  ;)

Hand knitted socks. I love hand-painted yarns, purples, jewel colours and rainbows! (I’m a UK size 4)
 
A fiber necklace like the ones from Enchanted earth! http://www.jade.enthuzed.net/11.htm
I love ‘Truffles’ and ‘Autumn Leaf’, actually, I love ‘em all!!

Sewn
A pair of Indian inspired or patchwork pillow cases in purple please.

A dragon, cat, dragonfly or owl hoodie!

A kimono hoodie – This one’s pretty cool!
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=138494.new#new

A black wrap dress.

A long hippy skirt!

Some washable cloth pads, with maybe a travel purse with dirty/clean compartments please? (I gave up buying disposable pads and tampons last year and I’ve never looked back. My body feels so much healthier!)

A sewing bag like this in purple? I desperately need something to carry sewing projects round in!
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73010.0

Artwork
I’d love a piece of Celtic artwork in purple for my living room wall. I don’t mind whether it’s a wall hanging or a picture!

DIY Kits
Needle felting…I’ve tried wet felting, but never needle felting! I’d love to have a go!

Resin casting…I’ve never tried it and would love to! I can’t get the stuff round here!

Lino cutting

Supplies
Interesting material. The most exiting material I can find round here is sari material, which is pretty, but not practical for a lot of things!

Some un-dyed wool yarn for dying (I got Kool-aid and I know how to use it! Unfortunately, I can’t find anything to use it on! *lol*)

Nickel-free or low-nickel coloured wire, preferable gauge 20 or higher (thicker stuff please) I can only get gold or silver-tone wire in my town!

Japanese craft books or magazines.

Anything from/inspired by my wists http://www.wists.com/Samsara

About me

I’m a 38, I’m an art and pottery teacher, and I live in the UK with my BF, 3 cats and a german shepherd dog. I’m basically a hippy-chick, my favourite colours are purple, black, and emerald green, although any strong colours are also cool especially rainbows (I don’t like pastels and I can’t wear yellows, or yellow based browns or oranges as they really don’t suit me!) Also I'm not keen on floral fabrics, unless they're oriental or trippy hippy, or if they’re appliquéd onto something else – I’m really into appliqué at the moment! I love batiks, Indian fabrics and tie dyes. I enjoy yoga, reading and crafting, particularly new crafts! Favourite themes are cats, dragons, nature, trees, anything Celtic or Art-Nouveau, sci-fi and fantasy books and films.

I’ve included my Wists, but don’t feel obliged to produce exact copies, they’re more a general guideline of what I like or would like!
Here’s some extra information about me if you want! http://samsarasswapinfo.blogspot.com/  

Thanks in advance for choosing me!!

I claim samsara for the girlie scull bag from her wist.  :) This is my second claim.

I'm 30 years old, work as a philosophy/psychology teacher, live with my boyfriend and four teletubbies ( ;D) in Uppsala, Sweden. And I wish for...

Craft supplies:

Soldering/Microscope slide pendant kit (never tried before)

Shrinky dinks for inkjet printer and/or strange colour shrinky dinks (I think there is a black kind)

Material for printing (water-proof) on fabric (bubble jet set?)

Crafting/Sewing themed metal charms (like scissors or something, to be used for making jewelry)

Silver plated chain to make necklaces and other jewelry

Bigger glass beads (more than 5 mm diameter)

Funny looking/funny shaped glass beads

Bookbinding kit (never tried before)

Kit for making animals and other creatures/decoration from beads, things like these: http://www.beadjewelrymaking.com/browse_all.html but maybe not too complex ones to start with, since I’m a beginner.

A kit for some kind of craft I haven't tried yet. Feel free to PM me about that.

Glass marbles, especially of this shape:
http://www.wholesalersusainc.com/glass-squares-clear-3x3x1cm-p-702.html
The squares, rectangles and circles with holes in them on the same site are also interesting, and coloured square marbles also... Just different shaped glass thingies to put pictures behind really... and/or coloured ones for rings:
http://www.plainmabel.com/ckshop.php?item=1168&ret=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.plainmabel.com%2Fckshop.php%3Fpage%3D1%26category%3D4




Crafted things:

Large calendar (to hang on the wall) with squares for each day where you have room to write something. Themes could be geometrical shapes/modern art, the teletubbies, crafting, black and white... or look to my wists for ideas.

Simple knitted cardigan (fitted, is that the word?) preferably in black or greyscale colours.

Messenger bag, preferably with zipper and pockets, so that I don't get pickpocked (is that a word?  :D)

Knitted things, since I don't knit (yet). See my wists for example of things I like.



Other

Craft books/magazines with fun new projects (not too traditional stuff) (in English or possibly German (well, Swedish is o.k. as well  :D))



And of course anything from my evergrowing wist. http://www.wists.com/gavagai


General note: No batik please.

I claim gavagai for beads, craft magazines from the UK, and maybe some other stuff!  This is my second claim this round, none sent, and I am in the UK.

1. Pajama pants for my boyfriend, in flannel or cotton prints.  He’s a real Boy’s Own type, so things like fighter planes, boats, firemen, cowboys, etc.  I have listed some fabrics below that I think he might like:

http://www.equilter.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/st_prod.html?p_prodid=46029&sid=31U9Hz1Vg0CX3Vj-34106016950.e0

PM me for measurements.

2. And a pair for me!  I have a fabric wist at www.wists.com/esmereldafabrics , and again, flannel or cotton only please.  Alternatively, see below for likes and dislikes

3. Jewellry findings (especially those french hooks for earrings) and beads for jewellry making.

4. A copy of Knitscene – either Autumn 2006 or Spring 2007, or, you know, both if you're feeling generous!!

5. A copy of Vogue Knitting Spring 2007

6. Amigurumi patterns

7. Hobbes – Looooooove!!!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=113448.0.  Any variation of this would be cool - amigurumi, felt stuffy, anything!  I love Hobbes!

8. Scrapbooking supplies – papers, glues, pens, inks, brads, anything really!! Thanks, mlsocci74!

9. Fabric – anything cool, I don’t sew much, but I do hoard fabric!!

10. A bracelet inspired by this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=114722.msg1096139#msg1096139

11. A jewellry box (you can recon a second hand one, I don't mind).  At the moment my jewellry sits in a sad little cardboard box on my bedside table.

12. A water bottle (preferably a metal one, but again please recon a second hand one).  We have a water fountain at work and at the moment I refil a plastic bottle to hold my water, but I worry about chemicals leaching into the water.  So one like this: http://www.adventureshop.co.uk/acatalog/Sigg_Adventure_Traveller_Classic.html, but with a crafty touch would be cool!

thanks in advance to anyone who picks me!  About me: I am 25, and live in London with my boyfriend of three years.  My favourite things include: summer days in the long grass, the night sky, snow, the stillness and the turbulence of the ocean.  Favourite themes include Christmas (forget Christmas in July, I love it all year round!); the ocean; birds, trees and forest animals; pirates; and stars.  My favourite colours are blues, greens, reds, purples, and browns, and I prefer rich, jewel shades, to brights.  I don't like neons or pastels!

Thanks again, guys!

roving--for my new love of spinning!

winter atire, its cold here!

local indie music to your area...think motion city soundtrack, the matches, the shins anything along those lines, or funkier stuff like the pogues, flogging molly or gogol bordello...or ska! i miss ska!

I claim Esmerelda for "I can't crochet to save my life, but I adore amigurumi animals, especially these by roxycraft. The bunny, frog and lion are my favourites!" from her wist!  (seems to me, I promised to claim you some day for amigurumi, didn't I!)

(and I'll send mine with Miss Mermaid's, all in 1 package)

this is my 3rd claim, 1 in transit, 1 ready to ship, none received yet

I'm in Wisconsin, USA

wish list!

handspun yarn - any color, any weight, as long as it's enough to make something out of it

hand painted yarn - do you love to Kool-Aid dye?  i'm in an apartment, and I'm massively afraid to try it here... so if you love to dye the yarn (specially the painted technique) and wanted to send the results, I'd probably be your best friend for life!

felting yarn - bright colors, reds, burgundy, blues are favorites

squares to make a quilt - 6" x 6", please.  I'll piece everything together (and post the results). <<< Thanks, xLadyLuckx - and yes, I want more!!

Unusual writing weapons... i mean, i don't want it to leak all over my purse, but if you had working fountain pens that you just don't use anymore, I'd be delighted to put them back to work!

anything inspired by my wist  http://www.wists.com/Dulcinea

almost anything mickey mouse (but not minnie mouse or other characters, please)

almost anything dragonflys - i really like dragonflies

thick athletic socks with slouchy cuffs - on my wist, there's a pair for the style I like

anything to decorate my BR - colors are off white, sea-foam green, ocean shades through to a toasty light brown

squares to make an afghan -  6" x 6", I think.  I decided I wanted a new afghan, so if you wanted to use up stash, I'll put them all together

ribbons - anything bright color or sparkly - maybe about an inch, inch and a half wide?  we use them to patch jeans, and for piecing together parts for other projects

grab bag/box of assorted craft supplies - ribbon, cool buttons, fat quarters, different color spools of thread - pretty much anything you have too much of and want to pass along, I just cleaned out my sewing box from all the mess, and it's looking really empty!

felted case for my digital camera - so i don't scratch the screen - PM for dimensions.

Anything Philadelphia eagles football for my son, who loves them

long-shots - I could really use some trousers and/or button down shirts for work - PM for sizing

turtleneck shirts for winter - almost anything, I live in them in the wintertime - PM for sizing

a bubba*tink style wallet - need LOTS of spaces for cards, since I have every rewards type card known to mankind

Address labels, for sending out all our packages - PM for details << Thank you, Devilninny!!

Notecards for enclosing in my packages << I'm getting some in the December wishlist but go through a lot of these!

... right... about me.  I'm the old lady in the crowd, the one peering over the bifocals.  I have 2 teenagers, and my day job is a computer programmer.  I have no allergies, no issues with animal products, would prefer to avoid religion/religion articles and politics at all costs.... my favorite colors are the jewel tones, think ruby, sapphire, emerald... i don't do terribly well with pastels.  We live in an apartment, where space is always at a premium... so small things that sit on tables and shelves and don't do anything except collect dust aren't a great thing here.

Thanks in advance to anyone who chooses me

I claim Dulcinea for "squares to make an afghan -  6" x 6""  and possibly, just maybe, some quilt squares too.  We'll see how that goes.  This is my first claim this round.  I'm in South Carolina.  Here's my list!

-a crochet hook roll with lots and lots of spaces

-A swap journal/calendar

-I just cut off all my hair (well, a lot of it) so headbands, bobby pins, and things like that would be awesome.  No hair ties though, as it's too short.

-earrings..  I love all earrings!  Right now I feel like I need some stud earrings, but I will accept any and all earrings into my clutches!

-something girly for my dog so everyone will stop thinking she's a boy!  She's a sweet little girl.

-a cute new apron.  preferable a full apron, to keep the splatters of my shirt too

-a fancy shmancy purse/clutch

-crochet patterns or magazines

-anything relating to Star Trek The Original Series..  I love Kirk!

I am 31, live in Massachusetts, travel a lot for work around the world (it is fun, but gets a little lonely in certain parts of the country where i don't know anyone), and i have 3 little doggies that i adore more than life itself. I love tattoos, mexicana, low brow art, vegas style stuff ( i collect anthing dice and playing card related). I volunteer for a small dog rescue which has been an amazing experience, so for those with doggies, you are instantly my friend.  I manage bands on the side, mostly metal and screamo type stuff which is totally fun. I like the heavier side of music but am known to listen to a lot of other types due to being bombarded by bands all the time. I work for an artist who is on the opposite side of the spectrum in terms of style that I like, but he has given me 13 years of opportunities and happiness for the most part so I am grateful no matter what people say about him......
Other than that I just try to enjoy making crafts, especially new challenges and have fun creating! I have met so many wonderful people swapping and that for me is the best part at the end of the day. Due to the travel I have been able to meet a couple of the girls in person which is totally awesome! Thanks for looking at my list and feel free to ask any questions! Rock on!

-   A star rug, kind of like this blanket but in brown/tan/reds : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=93048.0;topicseen

Ok, I claim Faerykisses for some Snow Queen Faerie Horns from her Wists (I love making these!) and maybe a surprise too!

This is my third wish this round, one has been posted and I'm in the UK.

My Wish list

Ethical & Allergies - I’m a vegetarian, so no animal products please (wool's okay, but leather, fur, suede or gelatine aren't!) I’m also allergic to nickel and some perfumes.
 
Jewellery
I would love a LOTR inspired Elven head-dress like the ones Arwen or Galadriel wear! (Okay, I can hope, can’t I?) Or any sort of Elven inspired jewellery?
(I’m allergic to Nickel though!)

Knitted and Crocheted
Ron’s Animal Crackers Hat - http://www.woolgathering.net/archives/cat_rons_animal_crackers_hat.html
I think it has pigtails/braids and a tassel!

I would absolutely LOVE a Captain Jack Arigurumi!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=104545.0
*sigh* If I can’t get Johnny Depp into my bed, I’ll make do with Jack Sparrow!! 

Hand knitted socks. I love hand-painted yarns, purples, jewel colours and rainbows! (I’m a UK size 4)
 
A fiber necklace like the ones from Enchanted earth! http://www.jade.enthuzed.net/11.htm
I love ‘Truffles’ and ‘Autumn Leaf’, actually, I love ‘em all!!

Sewn
A pair of Indian inspired or patchwork pillow cases in purple please.

A dragon, cat, dragonfly or owl hoodie!

A kimono hoodie – This one’s pretty cool!
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=138494.new#new

A black wrap dress.

A long hippy skirt!

Some washable cloth pads, with maybe a travel purse with dirty/clean compartments please? (I gave up buying disposable pads and tampons last year and I’ve never looked back. My body feels so much healthier!)

A sewing bag like this in purple? I desperately need something to carry sewing projects round in!
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73010.0

Artwork
I’d love a piece of Celtic artwork in purple for my living room wall. I don’t mind whether it’s a wall hanging or a picture!

DIY Kits
Needle felting…I’ve tried wet felting, but never needle felting! I’d love to have a go!

Resin casting…I’ve never tried it and would love to! I can’t get the stuff round here!

Lino cutting

Supplies
Interesting material. The most exiting material I can find round here is sari material, which is pretty, but not practical for a lot of things!

Some un-dyed wool yarn for dying (I got Kool-aid and I know how to use it! Unfortunately, I can’t find anything to use it on! *lol*)

Nickel-free or low-nickel coloured wire, preferable gauge 20 or higher (thicker stuff please) I can only get gold or silver-tone wire in my town!

Japanese craft books or magazines.

Anything from/inspired by my wists http://www.wists.com/Samsara

Esmerelda is making me a pond life charm bracelet and Gavagai is making me a girlie skully bag, both from my Wists! Thanks ladies!

About me

I’m a 38, I’m an art and pottery teacher, and I live in the UK with my BF, 3 cats and a german shepherd dog. I’m basically a hippy-chick, my favourite colours are purple, black, and emerald green, although any strong colours are also cool especially rainbows (I don’t like pastels and I can’t wear yellows, or yellow based browns or oranges as they really don’t suit me!) Also I'm not keen on floral fabrics, unless they're oriental or trippy hippy, or if they’re appliquéd onto something else – I’m really into appliqué at the moment! I love batiks, Indian fabrics and tie dyes. I enjoy yoga, reading and crafting, particularly new crafts! Favourite themes are cats, dragons, nature, trees, anything Celtic or Art-Nouveau, sci-fi and fantasy books and films.

I’ve included my Wists, but don’t feel obliged to produce exact copies, they’re more a general guideline of what I like or would like!
Here’s some extra information about me if you want! http://samsarasswapinfo.blogspot.com/

Thanks in advance for choosing me!!

I claim samsara (again  :)) for a pair of Indian inspired or patchwork pillow cases in purple please. This is my third claim.

I'm 30 years old, work as a philosophy/psychology teacher, live with my boyfriend and four teletubbies ( ;D) in Uppsala, Sweden. And I wish for...

Craft supplies:

Soldering/Microscope slide pendant kit (never tried before)

Shrinky dinks for inkjet printer and/or strange colour shrinky dinks (I think there is a black kind)

Material for printing (water-proof) on fabric (bubble jet set?)

Crafting/Sewing themed metal charms (like scissors or something, to be used for making jewelry)

Silver plated chain to make necklaces and other jewelry

Bigger glass beads (preferably more than 1 cm diameter)

Funny looking/funny shaped glass beads

Bookbinding kit (never tried before)

Kit for making animals and other creatures/decoration from beads, things like these: http://www.beadjewelrymaking.com/browse_all.html but maybe not too complex ones to start with, since I’m a beginner.

A kit for some kind of craft I haven't tried yet. Feel free to PM me about that.

Glass marbles, especially of this shape:
http://www.wholesalersusainc.com/glass-squares-clear-3x3x1cm-p-702.html
The squares, rectangles and circles with holes in them on the same site are also interesting, and coloured square marbles also... Just different shaped glass thingies to put pictures behind really... and/or coloured ones for rings:
http://www.plainmabel.com/ckshop.php?item=1168&ret=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.plainmabel.com%2Fckshop.php%3Fpage%3D1%26category%3D4




Crafted things:

Large calendar (to hang on the wall) with squares for each day where you have room to write something. Themes could be geometrical shapes/modern art, the teletubbies, crafting, black and white... or look to my wists for ideas.

Simple knitted cardigan (fitted, is that the word?) preferably in black or greyscale colours.

Messenger bag, preferably with zipper and pockets, so that I don't get pickpocked (is that a word?  :D)

Knitted things, since I don't knit (yet). See my wists for example of things I like.



Other

Craft books/magazines with fun new projects (not too traditional stuff) (in English or German (well, Swedish is good as well  :D))


And of course anything from my evergrowing wist. http://www.wists.com/gavagai


General note: No batik please.

I claim gavagai for a messanger bag.  My first one from the last swap turned out pretty good, so now I'll have some fun!

This is my first claim and I live in Maryland.

And here is my wish list:

 - Woolen sweaters - 'dry clean only' so they full really well.  No size restrictions. I usually hunt around in Goodwill, but if you have one you don't want then send it!

 - fabric - any style and size, as long as the print isn't too off the wall.  I'm a quilter by nature so I'm always looking for good stuff

 - suspenders - used is fine, and I need the button kind (braces) and not the clip kind

 - funky silk screened t-shirts or hoodies

 - earrings or bracelets - just no loud jangly bracelets because I type a lot at work

 - warm scarves or hats - knit or otherwise. 

 - old black and white photos of people

 - posters of those older European advertisements with bright colors http://www.allposters.com/-sp/Cognac-Monnet_i404819_.htm?aid=246987

 - Atlanta Thrashers or Washington Capitals (hockey, woo!) shirt

 - kits are good, too.  I love trying out new things! (microscope slide pendant kit would be AWESOME)

 - and as always, the wist www.wists.com/Grieney (http://www.wists.com/Grieney)

Other things about me: I am a flitting crafter.  I try something, conquer and move on, but always love to go back! I sew, quilt and throw pottery when I can find a class.  Also have the random education of an engineering degree with a minor in classical studies and I play cello.  Have a boyfriend and we share a beagle who basically owns the house.  Thanks in advance!

About me......
I am 31, live in Massachusetts, travel a lot for work around the world (it is fun, but gets a little lonely in certain parts of the country where i don't know anyone), and i have 3 little doggies that i adore more than life itself. I love tattoos, mexicana, low brow art, vegas style stuff ( i collect anthing dice and playing card related). I volunteer for a small dog rescue which has been an amazing experience, so for those with doggies, you are instantly my friend.  I manage bands on the side, mostly metal and screamo type stuff which is totally fun. I like the heavier side of music but am known to listen to a lot of other types due to being bombarded by bands all the time. I work for an artist who is on the opposite side of the spectrum in terms of style that I like, but he has given me 13 years of opportunities and happiness for the most part so I am grateful no matter what people say about him......
Other than that I just try to enjoy making crafts, especially new challenges and have fun creating! I have met so many wonderful people swapping and that for me is the best part at the end of the day. Due to the travel I have been able to meet a couple of the girls in person which is totally awesome! Thanks for looking at my list and feel free to ask any questions! Rock on!


HOW SPOILED AM I?!?!?! SEE BELOW>>>THANK YOU FAERYKISSES!!!! WWWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHOOOOOOOO!!!! (didn't want to tie up the thread by adding another post......hee hee!

Post by: Yarn or Fabric on January 05, 2007 11:35:59 AM
I am going to claim Chloeiscrazy for one crocheted alligator.  She just approved a pattern I have and I have carline time to contend with starting on Monday... so one alligator/crocodile coming up!


First claim.. here's the list..

I am in Huntsville, AL... living it up with the kids, the dog, the husband and the craft room!  I have tried to add a bunch of stuff to my list.. and another list is on my cheesy for craftster use website  (see signature line)

Here's my wish list...!

DIY kits!
I love love love the idea of diy kits!
Here are a few ideas.. If you rock at something else, I might be interested as well!
How to....
make those Bubbatink wallets
silk screen tshirts
stencilling t shirts
bookbinding
paper making  - I can get a used blender or whatever.
beginning quilting (I think I will be taking a class too!)
resin pendants & jewelry (I am in love with this idea!)
applique quilting
how to snap set kit - I think I would like the hole puncher style instead of the hammer style


Supplies - I love supplies.  I am such a diy person I just love supplies!

***sewing stuff -I am in love with my sewing machine. Funny. I used to hate it now I can't even think of being apart from it!
fabric - really cool designs.. think of Craftster reuse!
notions - I have a lot of bias tape little of anything else.  If you send it I will find use for it!
Ribbons for sewing projects - washable!
I will never have enough buttons!  If I had a room full of them I would still want more!
thread - you would shake your head at my limited thread color selection.  It is embarassing.
***Crochet Stitch dictionaries/guides- I have 5 right now but really would love more! Second hand is good for those!
***wood cutouts for outdoor use of gnomes - I am going to woodburn the gnome features - all sizes up to 10 or 12" would be cool.
***Machine embroidery stuff - I am getting a Janome MC350e.  I am so psyched - and am starting fresh with nothing!
  stabilizers, thread? OKay, I really don't have a clue what I need.  I Just know I have none of it!
***A nice attractive head for modeling hats - for my designing - something photogenic.  Maybe with a wig from a second hand store?
***One of those super comfy soft crochet hooks - size G if I had to pick one - that's the size I use for stuffies...
***purse handles - second hand is great - I have lots of round ones already.  I am not too keen on bamboo.
***buttonhole scissors



Crafted things or store bought:
***Two fabric stuffed dragons - snuggly size for my kids - not beanie baby.  I love Simplicity 4063.  Not fleece or felt - the dog eats those materials!
  I will personal trade for a second  - or claim me twice!  You know I will be claiming again!
***A fabric cover for my sewing machine - no pastels or neons or girly girl things.
***A fabric cover for my new embroidery machine! WhoooHooo! I am getting one tomorrow!
***music - I like industrial, alternative no metal or noise.  pm me or stalk me. I am stuck in the 90's!
   maybe if you have a used cd store nearby?  I really don't need a cd wallet though. got oodles of those.
***craft room organization - wall organizers, a small dry erase board, big  pretty or cool boxes, a cool wall clock...etc
***a futon cover for my queen sized futon - like that will ever happen, right? That is a biiiig wish!
***dog beds - but cat bed style - he likes to be in an oval nest!
***Wooden painted letters (about 3-4" tall) for my boys' rooms doors - LOGAN and COLLIN I think they will love having their names on the doors. Have fun with them!

If I jam up the list... well.  I will add on as best as I can.
Check my wists... check my halfbaked website ... there are more ideas there!

I claim Tanza for something off her wists and probably some fabric too.

This is my first claim and I live in Michigan, USA.

Here's my list!
Purse – smallish with a cool closure or at least a zipper – maybe like a jordy

Armwarmers in black, brown, gray, green, red (no orange)

Bloomers

Fabric – ¼ yard or larger – cool, retro, silly, even plain

Bag of “stuff” – rickrack, ribbon, misc. sewing stuff

Thread – any colors

Buttons – interesting old ones

Embellished hoodie or tee – L/XL

Cool pens

Something from my wists: http://www.wists.com/SevsOnlyGirl

Address labels

Felted Soap

Jewelry – stuff I can wear to work (nothing silly ), can be dangly earrings, chunky stuff, I like the microscope slide necklaces

Altered altoid tin (small) for holding aspirin in purse

L/XL tee for hubby- red, blue or gray – “Next time I’ll wave with ALL my fingers”

A surprise

A DIY kit - I'm eager to learn everything!

Flannel PJ’s for 5yo son – loves wild animals and bright colors

Flannel PJ’s for almost 12yo daughter – loves girly or punk stuff

About me:  I just turned 40, I work full time at a college in the Student Life Center so I like to at least APPEAR hip.  I love Harry Potter/dragons/mermaids.  My fave colors are green/red/black/brown – I hate orange.  I’m a mom to 2 kids, 5yo son and almost 12yo daughter.  Married 7 years.  I love to sew, and have been known to make jewelry, scrapbook and knit a little.  I’ll try almost any craft if you give me the directions and I can lay my hands on the materials.

I'm a 33 yo SAHM with 3 kids (+1) living in Acton, Ontario trying to fit my art-making in between dinners, naps and playdates....my favorite colours are black, red, purple, cobalt.  I really dislike pastels.  I adore skulls, greenmen, cool stripey-legged dolls, medieval stuph, and general goth-y goodness.  I love ephemera, embellishing, and anything old and crusty....yum. I've become an ATC-aholic!!! But duct-tape and I are in a "business, not for pleasure" relationship...I use too much of it around the house to fix stuff

i claim MooreLove for headbands! ("I love really wide headbands and I only have 1 that is black.  So I would love 1 (or some) in ANY colors/patterns")

it's my first claim!

Hello all! I just turned 20 years old and am currently a student in a small college near LA. I like bright colors and girly prints, pink is probably my favorite color, though I love blue as well. I don't like black, brown, or grey as much and probably wouldn't like goth or punk-themed items. I also don't like metallic-esque fabric, leather, or vinyl. I probably wouldn't really want anything Disney-related either.

Knitting needles of any size or type. I would prefer plastic or bamboo.

Yarn. I would especially love some handspun/homespun yarn or Noro yarn. Wool,and chunky would also be appreciated. I’ve been drooling over the homespun yarn I’ve seen on craftster.

Skinny jeans. PM me for measurements as my weight tends to fluctuate…

Knitted legwarmers.

Knitted socks. Brightly colored please!

Cute amigurimis. Check out my wist for examples of ones I’ve been admiring.

Circle skirt.

Crocheted beanie. I like the look of dropped stitches or “holes”…I don’t know what that would be called in crochet lingo – “slipped?”

Either a knitted or crocheted hat with earflaps. My wist has examples of ones I like.

T-shirt or zip-up hoodie that you've embellished/reconstructed - a stencil or silkscreen would be nice, maybe with birds on it.

Pj pants. I’ll never have enough of these...bright, cute, girly prints much appreciated!
 
Zippered tote in a cute print of fabric with a zipper pocket inside, roomy enough for some school books.

Sturdy messenger bag for textbooks, notebooks, etc.

Knitted or crocheted mittens.

Pretty felted bag.

Also, I recently ended a pretty restrictive diet and now I can eat sweets! Cookies, brownies, and chocolate would be delicious. Chocolate from abroad would be especially great. Just no nuts, please.

Anything inspired by my wist!

Thanks in advance to anyone that picks me!!

I claim yellowblanket for a crocheted beanie!  This is my second wish.  I'm in South Carolina.

My list!



-anything related to Archie Comics in any way..  I am obsessed with Archie Comics!!
  I would especially love some Archies in languages besides English!

-yarn.  Any yarn!  I need yarn to live!!  Rarrrr!   

-crochet hooks larger than 6.5mm but smaller than 11.5mm.  Or any size, really   ;)  I have a giant gap in my collection!

-a crochet hook roll with lots and lots of spaces


-A swap journal/calendar
  thanks mlsocci74!

-I just cut off all my hair (well, a lot of it) so headbands, bobby pins, and things like that would be awesome.  No hair ties though, as it's too short.

-earrings..  I love all earrings!  Right now I feel like I need some stud earrings, but I will accept any and all earrings into my clutches!

-something girly for my dog so everyone will stop thinking she's a boy!  She's a sweet little girl.

-a cute new apron.  preferable a full apron, to keep the splatters of my shirt too

-a fancy shmancy purse/clutch

-crochet patterns or magazines

-anything relating to Star Trek The Original Series..  I love Kirk!

-a plushie/amigurumi.  Something insanely cute I can snuggle!

-a surprise that you think I'd like!  I love surprises!

Post by: Yarn or Fabric on January 10, 2007 05:25:04 AM
I claim eenodol for an insanely cute stuffie/amigurumi -- I just happen to have one that fits that description sitting right here!  And it is insanely snuggly since I made it with LB homespun. sooo soft! And also probably something girly for the pup if I can!

This is my second claim -
I am in Huntsville, AL... living it up with the kids, the dog, the husband and the craft room!  I have tried to add a bunch of stuff to my list.. and another list is on my cheesy for craftster use website  (see signature line)

Here's my wish list...!

DIY kits!
I love love love the idea of diy kits!
Here are a few ideas.. If you rock at something else, I might be interested as well!
How to....
make those Bubbatink wallets
silk screen tshirts
bookbinding make Logan happy.  He makes books everyday!
paper making  - I can get a used blender or whatever.
resin pendants & jewelry (I am in love with this idea!)
how to snap set kit - I think I would like the hole puncher style instead of the hammer style

Supplies - I love supplies.  I am such a diy person I just love supplies!

***sewing stuff -I am in love with my sewing machine. Funny. I used to hate it now I can't even think of being apart from it!
fabric - really cool designs.. think of Craftster reuse!
notions - I have a lot of bias tape little of anything else.  If you send it I will find use for it!
Ribbons for sewing projects - washable!
I will never have enough buttons!  If I had a room full of them I would still want more!
thread - you would shake your head at my limited thread color selection.  It is embarassing.
***Crochet Stitch dictionaries/guides- I have 5 right now but really would love more! Second hand is good for those!
***wood cutouts for outdoor use of gnomes - I am going to woodburn the gnome features - all sizes up to 10 or 12" would be cool.
***Machine embroidery stuff - I just got an embroidery machine!
  stabilizers, thread, gift certificate to my local supply store?
***One of those super comfy soft crochet hooks - size G if I had to pick one - that's the size I use for stuffies... My palm has a callus on the callus from where my hook grates in to me!
***purse handles - second hand is great - I have lots of round ones already.  I am not too keen on bamboo.
***buttonhole scissors

Crafted things or store bought:
***Two fabric stuffed dragons - snuggly size for my kids - not beanie baby.  I love Simplicity 4063.  Not fleece or felt - the dog eats those materials!
  I will personal trade for a second  - or claim me twice!  You know I will be claiming again!
***A fabric cover for my sewing machine - no pastels or neons or girly girl things.
***music - I like industrial, alternative no metal or noise.  pm me or stalk me. I am stuck in the 90's!   maybe if you have a used cd store nearby?  I really don't need a cd wallet though. got oodles of those.
***craft room organization - wall organizers, a small dry erase board, big  pretty or cool boxes, a cool wall clock...etc
***a futon cover for my queen sized futon - like that will ever happen, right? That is a biiiig wish!
***dog beds - but cat bed style - he likes to be in an oval nest!

Big wish for right now....
***Wooden painted/decorated letters (about 3-4" tall) for my boys' rooms doors - LOGAN and COLLIN I think they will love having their names on the doors. Have fun with them!  Or the supplies I need to do it myself - go wild! dinosaurs for Collin Space for Logan!

If I jam up the list... well.  I will add on as best as I can.
Check my wists... check my halfbaked website ... there are more ideas there!  I really am pretty easy to please you know!

I claim bhean for a set of 13 placemats (if she likes the fabrics, I will PM when I find the camera), or otherwise a wisty surprise.

This is my first claim.

I am in Ontario, Canada.

My wishlist:

crocheted/knitted corals/anenomes/other reef creatures (I am trying to build a crocheted coral reef around the base of my aquarium).  Look here for ideas http://www.theiff.org/exhibits/reef.html

tote bag, any style whatsoever, as long as it's roomy; I use them to store ongoing projects!

fibers other than wool for spinning (soy, angora, etc)

handspun yarn

recycled sari yarn or any other very unique yarn

set of mini beaded icicles: I have a crochet christmas tree, maybe 16 inches tall, that I want to put beaded icicles on (they don't need to be white, but light colours/irridescent/translucent would be good, and 1.5 - 2 inches tall each).  I had planned on making them myself, but I have been having eye trouble and can't focus for long on small beads

fused glass pendant (I like ones that are kinda arty, or have a picture in them:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=137693.0
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=120160.0

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136531.0 )

fabrics from around the world (kimono silks, african dyes & batiks, etc)

very sheer, see-through fabrics for layering on wallhangings - nets, tulles, scrims, gauzes, etc.

varied weights & types of stabilizers for machine embroidery (cut-away, tear-away, heat-away, wash-away) -- I want to play!

fabrics (fat quarters or small pieces, can be as small as 4" square or 6" square, small prints for quilts, or unique textures - I mostly make textile art wallhangings)

setacolor xpandaprint

back issues of Quilting Arts magazine (I have issues 21,22,23)

shiva paintstiks

About me: I am 34, soon to be 35.  I have a hubby, 3 year old daughter, dog, cat, lovebird, fish.  I work at home as a programmer.  The free time I get is mostly spent sewing, creating wallhanging art quilts, and knitting/crocheting.

Post by: Grieney on January 12, 2007 06:12:01 AM
I claim knitting_nyxie for a messenger bag! I'm having a good run of luck with them lately.  Will PM for details.

This is my second claim (none sent yet) and I live in Maryland.

- Woolen sweaters - 'dry clean only' so they full really well.  No size restrictions. I usually hunt around in Goodwill, but if you have one you don't want then send it!

 - fabric - any style and size, as long as the print isn't too off the wall.  I'm a quilter by nature so I'm always looking for good stuff

 - suspenders - used is fine, and I need the button kind (braces) and not the clip kind

 - funky silk screened t-shirts or hoodies

 - earrings or bracelets - just no loud jangly bracelets because I type a lot at work

 - warm scarves or hats - knit or otherwise. 

 - old black and white photos of people (THANKS xladyluckx! Could always use more)

 - posters of those older European advertisements with bright colors http://www.allposters.com/-sp/Cognac-Monnet_i404819_.htm?aid=246987

 - Atlanta Thrashers or Washington Capitals (hockey, woo!) shirt

 - kits are good, too.  I love trying out new things! (microscope slide pendant kit would be AWESOME) (THANKS xladyluckx!)

 - men's ties - used is fine, Goodwill always has a good stash.

 - and as always, the wist www.wists.com/Grieney

Other things about me: I am a flitting crafter.  I try something, conquer and move on, but always love to go back! I sew, quilt and throw pottery when I can find a class.  Also have the random education of an engineering degree with a minor in classical studies and I play cello.  Have a boyfriend and we share a beagle who basically owns the house.  Thanks in advance!

Veludo! I would love to claim you to make:

8- a cupcake/felt cake pincushion

How big would you like it?!

this is my first claim. xxx

Hello! I live in the UK and I love Bettie Page and pin up style, polka dots, black, pink, red and lime green (but not all together), I love my cats, tattoos, sailor jerry, pirates and ninjas. I love retro print fabrics, Japanise cute stuff, and all things nautical, especially 17th century sail ship stories.

Here is my list, thank you for looking at it  :-*


Crafted Things:

A self esteem mirror https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=118178.0

Pyjama Pants

Bloomers

A kitty brinkle bag for my cuties https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=57920.0

shrinky dink tattoo or pin up jewelry things I saw some fab sailor jerry tattoo shrinkies on craftster, but I can't find them now I'm under pressure!

Hair ornaments, like big flowers, or bows on pins, or whatever you think would look nice (I have long brown hair with a Bettie fringe)

A vest top (which I think is also called spaghetti tank?!) of some crafty variety, cos I hate covering up my new tattoo!  Embroidered, printed, iron on, painted, whatever you think, suitable for a pin up girl!

A tote/some totes - because I want to stop using carrier bags at the supermarket. Plain and simple would be great, but cute,embellished or with some kind of slogan (possibly sweary)would be fantastic.

Anchor or swallow earrings

Supplies:

Fabric with print of pin up girls, housewives, tattoos or teeth

Sharpies

Craft magazines from another country, preferably in English though.



Edit:Oh!!!! I forgot I have a wist! Anything from or inspired by y wists!

I'm a 33 yo SAHM with 3 kids (+1) living in Acton, Ontario trying to fit my art-making in between dinners, naps and playdates....my favorite colours are black, red, purple, cobalt.  I really dislike pastels.  I adore skulls, greenmen, cool stripey-legged dolls, medieval stuph, and general goth-y goodness.  I love ephemera, embellishing, and anything old and crusty....yum. I've become an ATC-aholic!!! But duct-tape and I are in a "business, not for pleasure" relationship...I use too much of it around the house to fix stuff

Post by: gatheredthreads on January 14, 2007 01:04:08 PM
I claim groschveux for the tutu for her 4 year old, plus some scrapbooking supplies.

This is my second claim, none sent.

I am in Ontario, Canada.

My wishlist:

crocheted/knitted corals/anenomes/other reef creatures (I am trying to build a crocheted coral reef around the base of my aquarium).  Look here for ideas http://www.theiff.org/exhibits/reef.html

tote bag, any style whatsoever, as long as it's roomy; I use them to store ongoing projects!

fibers other than wool for spinning (soy, angora, etc)

handspun yarn

recycled sari yarn or any other very unique yarn

a slide pendant inspired by the Vintage Fairies at www.sallyjean.com  I love the creative fairy with the saying "sometimes there was a storm in her brain".  I also love the art fairies with the saying "I must make art".  Or a Salvador Dali inspired one with the quote from my siggie.  Or a Van Gogh inspired one with the quote "I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate"

set of mini beaded icicles: I have a crochet christmas tree, maybe 16 inches tall, that I want to put beaded icicles on (they don't need to be white, but light colours/irridescent/translucent would be good, and 1.5 - 2 inches tall each).  I had planned on making them myself, but I have been having eye trouble and can't focus for long on small beads

fused glass pendant (I like ones that are kinda arty, or have a picture in them:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=137693.0
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=120160.0
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136530.0 
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136531.0 )

fabrics from around the world (kimono silks, african dyes & batiks, etc)

very sheer, see-through fabrics for layering on wallhangings - nets, tulles, scrims, gauzes, etc.

varied weights & types of stabilizers for machine embroidery (cut-away, tear-away, heat-away, wash-away) -- I want to play!

fabrics (fat quarters or small pieces, can be as small as 4" square or 6" square, small prints for quilts, or unique textures - I mostly make textile art wallhangings)

setacolor xpandaprint

back issues of Quilting Arts magazine (I have issues 21,22,23,24)

shiva paintstiks

About me: I am 34, soon to be 35.  I have a hubby, 3 year old daughter, dog, cat, lovebird, fish.  I work at home as a programmer.  The free time I get is mostly spent sewing, creating wallhanging art quilts, and knitting/crocheting.

I claim kiki*eks for crochet bowls. This is my first claim.

Hello everyone! My name is Samantha and I’m a nineteen year-old South Carolinian (USA). I am currently attending college to receive a degree in elementary education, and I’m also working as a substitute teacher. I’m the proud mommy of Clara the rat, who is, quite possibly, the most spoiled animal on the planet. I’m mainly a crocheter, but I also make soap and sew a little and I’m currently attempting to learn how to knit. I love expanding my crafting horizons.

Favorite Colors: Greens (lime, olive, kelly), hot pink, brown, black, teal.

Likes (some of these may seem a little…strange, but I promise I’m not some weird creep.): Horror movies, serial killers, zombies, rodents (especially rats), leafless trees, apples, snails, handguns, cutesy Japanese-inspired stuff, video games, caffeine, fawns, tacky/”ugly” things.

Hates: The color yellow, cold weather, birds, sports, rap music, Tim Burton, monkeys, math.


Supplies:
-Melt-and-pour soap molds.
-Melt-and-pour soap fragrances.
-Melt-and-pour soap base of any sort.
-Yarn, of any sort, but I’d really love some handspun or some like this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=295327 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=295327)
-Sewing patterns for a beginner. I got a machine about six months ago, and have barely used it. I’d really like some simple patterns to get me started, though.
-Polymer clay covered crochet hooks. Sizes I and G would be best (they’re what I use the most) but any size is fine.


DIY Kits:
-Kool-Aid yarn dying.
-Resin casting.
-Bookbinding.
-Earring making.
-Spinning.


Crafted items:
-Messenger bag. A few I really love are:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129915.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129915.0),  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=462095 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=462095),  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=93594.10;topicseen (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=93594.10;topicseen), and  http://pixelgirlshop.com/item.php?item_id=616&category_id=65 (http://pixelgirlshop.com/item.php?item_id=616&category_id=65) (there are even more on my Wist, though.)
-Some sort of mixed paper journal to keep track of swapping/Etsy orders.
-A crochet hook case. I’m currently in love with this one:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136510.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136510.0)
-Something to help me organize my craft stuff. I'm currently attempting to organize all of my craft stuff in my very small bedroom.
-Mary Janes. They can be crocheted/knitted, stenciled, embellished, whatever. Just something funky and cute.

-Anything to show off my rat mommy pride. (Shirt, jewelry, etc.)

Post by: Banga on January 16, 2007 07:26:01 AM
I claim pawnshoppromises for a menstrual care kit and a surprise from her list!
This is my first claim this round.

About me: I'm Joanna, a 27 yr. old recently married, temporarily unemployed high school teacher/craftster/world traveler/scholar/rockstar. Okay, I made up the last one. I am obsessed with chocolate, live music, books, Top Chef, paper, shoes, travel, and shiny objects. I have a travel blog with a swap info page if you want to know anything more (Link in my sig!).

My list:

Jewelry:
- a nestlace with something other than eggs in it. Maybe a turtle?
- I would adore you if you made me a love letter necklace like Uli's on Project Runway! It can be all silver, or even a colored clay envelope if you want. It would be awesome if the little letter could have the initials J and E written on it. These are the best pics I can find! http://www.bravotv.com/Project_Runway/photos/season/3/designers/Uli_Herzner
- A version of one of these pendants with a leather cord http://www.spoonfedart.com/gallery/gallery.html
 *p.s. I prefer shorter necklaces to really long ones*

Craft stuff:
- Colorful roving! I'm a newly addicted felter and can't get enough!
- A grab bag of fun trims and ribbons
- Needle felting kit
- rubber stamps, ink pads in various colors

Knit/crochet:
- A calorimetry in mixed colors like this http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTcalorimetry.html Thanks esmerelda!
- I also love the "Dynomite" knucks! http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTknucks.html
- Knee socks, pedicure socks, or flip flop socks. I love solid neutrals or jewel tones, stripes, or argyle. I'm a US size 9-9 1/2, but you don't need to make them yourself!


Other:
- I'd love a passport holder like one of these!  http://www.hollandcox.com/passportcase.html Durable and with lots of pockets, perfect for all my traveling, maybe in a fun print! Please make sure there is a pocket large enough to hold the passport:)
- A monster stuffie like this purple guy! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136306.40
- I love all things PaPaYa, one of their journals or cards would be awesome, but a handmade journal inspired by them would be awesome also!
http://shop.hannahgrey.com/index.php?cPath=290
- A swap journal - there is a bound one on my wists that is perfection
- A stenciled/screenprinted tee with John Travolta from his Saturday Night Fever days. I'd love it to have the headline "Don't hit the hair!" PM me if you want to do this cause I have a picture in my head that I can try to describe to you better!
- I adore screenprinted, stenciled, and embellished tees/tanks/hoodies. Women's small for tees and tanks, medium for a hoodie. I especially love zip up hoodies with large hoods cause I have a big head and lots of hair. See my wists or PM me for ideas.
- I'd love a medium sized purse, but with a strap/handle, not a clutch! Perhaps a fun or vintage print, there are tons on my wists if you need an idea.

And of course, anything from my lengthy wists!

I claim Banga for a calimorety calorimetry!  I was in such a hurry because you whipped pawnshoppromises from under my nose, and I didn't want to miss you as well!

I am in the UK and this is my fourth claim this round, one received.

1. Pajama pants for my boyfriend, in flannel or cotton prints.  He's a real Boy's Own type, so things like fighter planes, boats, firemen, cowboys, etc.  I have listed some fabrics below that I think he might like:

http://www.equilter.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/st_prod.html?p_prodid=46029&sid=31U9Hz1Vg0CX3Vj-34106016950.e0

PM me for measurements.

2. And a pair for me!  I have a fabric wist at www.wists.com/esmereldafabrics , and again, flannel or cotton only please.  Alternatively, see below for likes and dislikes

3. Jewellry findings (especially those french hooks for earrings) and beads for jewellry making.

4. A copy of Knitscene - either Autumn 2006 or Spring 2007, or, you know, both if you're feeling generous!! Thanks, Miss M!!

5. Any of the Interweave Knits Autumn/Winter editions from 2004, 2005, or 2006!

6. Amigurumi patterns

7. Hobbes - Looooooove!!!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=113448.0.  Any variation of this would be cool - amigurumi, felt stuffy, anything!  I love Hobbes!

8. Scrapbooking supplies - papers, glues, pens, inks, brads, anything really!! Thanks, mlsocci74!

9. Fabric - anything cool, I don't sew much, but I do hoard fabric!!

10. A bracelet inspired by this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=114722.msg1096139#msg1096139

11. A jewellry box (you can recon a second hand one, I don't mind).  At the moment my jewellry sits in a sad little cardboard box on my bedside table.

12. A water bottle (preferably a metal one, but again please feel free to recon a second hand one).  We have a water fountain at work and at the moment I refil a plastic bottle to hold my water, but I worry about chemicals leaching into the water.  So one like this http://www.adventureshop.co.uk/acatalog/Sigg_Adventure_Traveller_Classic.html, but with a crafty touch would be cool!

thanks in advance to anyone who picks me!  About me: I am 25, and live in London with my boyfriend of three years.  My favourite things include: summer days in the long grass, the night sky, snow, the stillness and the turbulence of the ocean.  Favourite themes include Christmas (forget Christmas in July, I love it all year round!); the ocean; birds, trees and forest animals; pirates; and stars.  My favourite colours are blues, greens, reds, purples, and browns, and I prefer rich, jewel shades, to brights.  I don't like neons or pastels!

And now a word from one of our organizers....


So far so good!  We are officially in the second half of our swapping month and the packages are starting to really come in!

I wanted to remind everyone to pm your recipient - as well as Craftydeb (that's me) and SevsOnlyGirl when you send your packages.  If you think you are going to be late - pm us - keep us in the loop!  You will not be publicly flogged for it - just tell us!

A word on sending - delivery confirmations are really a big thing in swaps.  That also includes customs numbers for overseas shipping - if you fill out a customs form, you get a customs number - and it works just like a delivery confirmation number - you can go to the www.usps.com site and plug that number in and you can follow its progress - next time you ship overseas - check it out for giggles...

So please send us your delivery confirmation or customs numbers!

When you get a package in - don't let your organizers be the last one to know you got a package!  When you get something in - pm your sender as well as Craftydeb (that would still be me) and SevsOnlyGirl.  You can do that all in the same message.  Remember that your sender isn't cleared of her claim until we hear about it - and it really should be firsthand, not in the gallery or by the sender. A lot of our swappers are in the red and just waiting on bated breath for those packages to arrive so they can share their talents again!

We have had a great first half of the swap - I would love to see 100% participation because I am lazy and don't have to ask a mod to clear feedback - so if you haven't claimed yet, start checking out the swap line and see who is up!  I don't know if there has ever been an OWS swap with 100% participation but I would love to see this one hit it!

Have a great rest of the swap and remember - keep your organizers in the loop, pm your senders, and those dc/lc numbers are HUGE!!!

Thanks!!


Okay... that is my last interruption.  I didn't want a lot of chatter on the board since it makes it difficult to follow who is up but I really felt like this should be said...

Esmerelda is up!  See above awesome list of craftable goodies!

Ohhh - one last thing - occasionally check the first page to make sure I have your info updated.  I am doing the best I can to keep everything up to date and right but I do make mistakes and have made several already - please tell me if there is something wonkered!

Post by: GatsbyGirl on January 16, 2007 08:10:53 PM
I claim igobylorib for vintage-inspired dish towels. This is my first claim, with zero sent and zero received.

Hi there. I'm a thirtysomething writer/editor who lives in Los Angeles with my husband and two cats, but my heart truly resides in Texas. My favorite holidays are Valentine's Day, Day of the Dead and the two weeks before Christmas when everyone has the holiday spirit. I drive a cake batter yellow VW bug, but my second vehicle is a pink scooter. My interests include TV, food and chick lit (not always in that order). My favorite era is that gray one between Mod and Glam (think Andy Warhol/The Factory/Velvet Undergound), followed by the 1920s. If I have one regret it's that I don't have the bone structure to wear my hair super short like Mia Farrow's in "Rosemary's Baby." I'm currently into chocolate brown and those colors that go with it -- turquoise, pink -- but I also have a weakness for poppy Gerber daisy colors like pink and orange with a bit of burgundy thrown in. I try to stop eating three hours before bed. I don't always succeed. I prefer silver to gold, gloss to matte, cashmere to silk, heels to flats, red wine to white (champagne to both), pears to apples.

Things my little heart desires:

Definitely check out my wists. It's small, but should/shall be growing: http://www.wists.com/GatsbyGirl

Postage Stamp/Slide necklace -- And if you use the Wonder Woman stamp, you would truly be my new favorite person

Nancy Drew book clutch purse

Long-sleeved t-shirt with applique and/or embroidery (size Medium)

Funky, crafty wrap skirt (I'm a 6, but I guess with a wrap skirt it doesn't matter)

Anything (purse, clothing, cards, etc.) with felt applique

Fused glass pendant

A vinyl coin purse with a zipper. I need one for my car (damn LA parking meters). I've always liked the looks of these: http://www.stitchpixie.com/

Wide Alice headband(s) -- I just got Jean Shrimpton/Marianne Faithfull bangs, so I'm all about the headbands

A knit corset tee -- http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_4920958,00.html (I don't crochet or knit, so I have no idea how complicated this is, so if you're laughing now and going "In her dreams" I completely understand)

Vintage (40s to the 70s, with an emphasis on the 50s and 60s) Craft kits. For some reason, I love those self-contained, "Here's the instructions. Here's the supplies. Go crazy." deals, especially older ones. Extra especially if sequins are involved.

Notecards -- plain colored ones, or decorated

Pink Beaded Tree of Life pendant

Geegaws and Supplies:
   Wire cookie cutters
   Paper Dolls
   Girl/Romance/Fashion Comics
   Fabric -- Mod prints, anything in pinks and browns (seperately, or together), flocked (or just looks like flocked wallpaper), patterned oil cloth, fun toile (as opposed to little old lady toile), sock monkey, Michael Miller ... .
   Tile beads (you know the ones: look like dominoes, but have a hole drilled through it, ready to be made into a pendant/charm)
   Plastic charms
   Rhinestones
   Super cool buttons
   Art books (anything with good decoupageable images)
   Patterned scrapbooking paper/giftwrap
   Japanese felt mascots/minatures/food craft books

Oh, and I know no one will make me this, but while rewatching "Goblet of Fire" I went, "I want one of those," about the hats the girls of Beauxbatons Academy wear. I assume you could do it out of felt, but have no idea where to begin: http://www.comingsoon.net/cgi-bin/imageFolio.cgi?action=view&link=Fantasy/Harry_Potter/Harry_Potter_and_the_Goblet_of_Fire&image=gobletoffire78.jpg&img=9&tt=

Thanks y'all!

About me: I am 16 and I live in Houston, Texas and I love it here! I love hearts, stars, skulls, clovers, anchors, tattoo birds, robots, dinosaurs, Texas, pandas, zebras(zebra print), rockets, lightning bolts, musical notes, pretty Victorian things, and basically anything!

Post by: Samsara on January 18, 2007 12:56:14 AM
This is my fourth wish this round, two have been received, one is in transit and I'm in the UK.

My Wish list

Ethical & Allergies - I’m a vegetarian, so no animal products please (wool's okay, but leather, fur, suede or gelatine aren't!) I’m also allergic to nickel and some perfumes.
 
Jewellery
I would love a LOTR inspired Elven head-dress like the ones Arwen or Galadriel wear! (Okay, I can hope, can’t I?) Or any sort of Elven inspired jewellery?
(I’m allergic to Nickel though!)

I would love this lotus necklace!
http://beadwork.about.com/library/weekly/aa090899.htm

Knitted and Crocheted
Ron’s Animal Crackers Hat - http://www.woolgathering.net/archives/cat_rons_animal_crackers_hat.html
I think it has pigtails/braids and a tassel!

My babies would love you forever if you made a kitty pi!
http://theknittinggarden.com/gallery-march/mar-free-3.htm

I would absolutely LOVE a Captain Jack Arigurumi!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=104545.0
*sigh* If I can’t get Johnny Depp into my bed, I’ll make do with Jack Sparrow!! 

Hand knitted socks. I love hand-painted yarns, purples, jewel colours and rainbows! (I’m a UK size 4)
 
A fiber necklace like the ones from Enchanted earth! http://www.jade.enthuzed.net/11.htm
I love ‘Truffles’ and ‘Autumn Leaf’, actually, I love ‘em all!!

Sewn
A pair of Indian inspired or patchwork pillow cases in purple please.

A dragon, cat, or dragonfly hoodie!

A kimono hoodie – This one’s pretty cool!
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=138494.new#new

A black wrap dress.

A long hippy skirt!

Some washable cloth pads, with maybe a travel purse with dirty/clean compartments please? (I gave up buying disposable pads and tampons last year and I’ve never looked back. My body feels so much healthier!) These ones are cute
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=86096.msg863244#msg863244

Artwork
I’d love a piece of Celtic artwork in purple for my living room wall. I don’t mind whether it’s a wall hanging or a picture!


DIY Kits
Needle felting…I’ve tried wet felting, but never needle felting! I’d love to have a go!

Resin casting…I’ve never tried it and would love to! I can’t get the stuff round here!

Lino cutting

Drop spindle spinning

Sock knitting kit

Supplies
Interesting material. The most exiting material I can find round here is sari material, which is pretty, but not practical for a lot of things!

Some un-dyed or white wool yarn for dying (I got Kool-aid and I know how to use it! Unfortunately, I can’t find anything to use it on! *lol*)

Nickel-free or low-nickel coloured wire, preferable gauge 20 or higher (thicker stuff please) I can only get gold or silver-tone wire in my town!

Sakura glaze pens (Impossible to find in the UK!)

Japanese craft books or magazines.

Surprise me!

Anything from/inspired by my wists http://www.wists.com/Samsara

Esmerelda made me a pond life charm bracelet and Gavagai is making me a girlie skully bag and some cushion covers, all from my Wists! Thanks ladies!

About me

I’m a 38, I’m an art and pottery teacher, and I live in the UK with my BF, 3 cats and a german shepherd dog. I’m basically a hippy-chick, my favourite colours are purple, black, and emerald green, although any strong colours are also cool especially rainbows (I don’t like pastels and I can’t wear yellows, or yellow based browns or oranges as they really don’t suit me!) Also I'm not keen on floral fabrics, unless they're oriental or trippy hippy, or if they’re appliquéd onto something else – I’m really into appliqué at the moment! I love batiks, Indian fabrics and tie dyes. I enjoy yoga, reading and crafting, particularly new crafts! Favourite themes are cats, dragons, nature, trees, anything Celtic or Art-Nouveau, sci-fi and fantasy books and films.

I’ve included my Wists, but don’t feel obliged to produce exact copies, they’re more a general guideline of what I like or would like!
Here’s some extra information about me if you want! http://samsarasswapinfo.blogspot.com/

Thanks in advance for choosing me!!

I claim Samsara for the Maiden's Glory coronet from her wists.

This is my fifth claim, two received, two outstanding

I am in the uK, and my list goes a little something like this:

1. Pajama pants for my boyfriend, in flannel or cotton prints.  He's a real Boy's Own type, so things like fighter planes, boats, firemen, cowboys, etc.  I have listed some fabrics below that I think he might like:

http://www.equilter.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/st_prod.html?p_prodid=46029&sid=31U9Hz1Vg0CX3Vj-34106016950.e0

http://www.equilter.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/st_prod.html?p_prodid=73670&sid=31U9Hz1Vg0CX3Vj-46106048150.91

http://www.equilter.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/st_prod.html?p_prodid=79056&sid=31U9Hz1Vg0CX3Vj-46106048150.91

PM me for measurements.

2. And a pair for me!  I have a fabric wist at www.wists.com/esmereldafabrics , and again, flannel or cotton only please.  Alternatively, see below for likes and dislikes

3. Jewellry findings (especially those french hooks for earrings) and beads for jewellry making.

4. A copy of Knitscene - either Autumn 2006 or Spring 2007, or, you know, both if you're feeling generous!! Thanks, Miss M!!

5. Any of the Interweave Knits Autumn/Winter editions from 2004, 2005, or 2006!

6. Amigurumi patterns

7. Hobbes - Looooooove!!!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=113448.0.  Any variation of this would be cool - amigurumi, felt stuffy, anything!  I love Hobbes!

8. Scrapbooking supplies - papers, glues, pens, inks, brads, anything really!! Thanks, mlsocci74!

9. Fabric - anything cool, I don't sew much, but I do hoard fabric!!

10. A bracelet inspired by this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=114722.msg1096139#msg1096139

11. A jewellry box (you can recon a second hand one, I don't mind).  At the moment my jewellry sits in a sad little cardboard box on my bedside table.

12. A water bottle (preferably a metal one, but again please feel free to recon a second hand one).  We have a water fountain at work and at the moment I refil a plastic bottle to hold my water, but I worry about chemicals leaching into the water.  So one like this http://www.adventureshop.co.uk/acatalog/Sigg_Adventure_Traveller_Classic.html, but with a crafty touch would be cool!

13. Anything from m'wists, although not the apple tote (Thanks gavagai!) or the bubba*tink wallet (Thanks, la_chrystelle!).  Also, igobylorib just claimed me for a wisty surprise, so you might want to check in with her on that!  And Dulcinea has sent me an amigurumi from the roxycraft book (it's still on its way though, so I can't tell you which) so you might want to check with her!  I promise to update my wist someday...*sigh*

I forgot my blurb, but I posted on page 11 so if you want to see it, you can go there!

Thank you, lovely person who picks me!

I claim Zombie Flesh in the name of guinea pigs!!
list in a sec!  3r claim - one in transit, one in a package to go out today

I am sooo glad I checked the board before heading out!  My kid is sitting in the car in the garage right now!

Ok
I am in Huntsville, AL... living it up with the kids, the dog, the husband and the craft room!  I have tried to add a bunch of stuff to my list.. and another list is on my cheesy for craftster use website  (see signature line)

Here's my wish list...!

DIY kits!
I love love love the idea of diy kits!
Here are a few ideas.. If you rock at something else, I might be interested as well!
How to....
make those Bubbatink wallets
silk screen tshirts
bookbinding make Logan happy.  He makes books everyday!
paper making  - I can get a used blender or whatever.
resin pendants & jewelry (I am in love with this idea!)
how to snap set kit - I think I would like the hole puncher style instead of the hammer style

Supplies - I love supplies.  I am such a diy person I just love supplies!

***sewing notions - I have a lot of bias tape little of anything else.  If you send it I will find use for it!
Ribbons for sewing projects - washable!
I will never have enough buttons!  If I had a room full of them I would still want more!
thread - you would shake your head at my limited thread color selection.  It is embarassing.
I am going through zippers like mad too!
***Crochet Stitch dictionaries/guides- I have 5 right now but really would love more! Second hand is good for those!
***wood cutouts for outdoor use of gnomes - I am going to woodburn the gnome features - all sizes up to 10 or 12" would be cool.
***Machine embroidery stuff - I just got an embroidery machine!
  stabilizers, thread, gift certificate to my local supply store?
***One of those super comfy soft crochet hooks - size G if I had to pick one - that's the size I use for stuffies... My palm has a callus on the callus from where my hook grates in to me!
***purse handles - second hand is great - I have lots of round ones already.  I am not too keen on bamboo.
***buttonhole scissors
***patchwork applique scissors?  They are funny looking.

Crafted things or store bought:
***Two fabric stuffed dragons - snuggly size for my kids - not beanie baby.  I love Simplicity 4063.  Not fleece or felt - the dog eats those materials!  I also found an even more amazing one online.  I think it is in my wists.
  I will personal trade for a second  - or claim me twice!  You know I will be claiming again!
***A fabric cover for my sewing machine - no pastels or neons or girly girl things.
***music - I like industrial, alternative no metal or noise.  pm me or stalk me. I am stuck in the 90's!   maybe if you have a used cd store nearby?  I really don't need a cd wallet though. got oodles of those.
***craft room organization - wall organizers, a small dry erase board, big  pretty or cool boxes, a cool wall clock...etc
***a futon cover for my queen sized futon - like that will ever happen, right? That is a biiiig wish!
***dog beds - but cat bed style - he likes to be in an oval nest!

Big wish for right now....
***Wooden painted/decorated letters (about 3-4" tall) for my boys' rooms doors - LOGAN and COLLIN I think they will love having their names on the doors. Have fun with them!  Or the supplies I need to do it myself - go wild! dinosaurs for Collin Space for Logan!

If I jam up the list... well.  I will add on as best as I can.
Check my wists... check my halfbaked website ... there are more ideas there!  I really am pretty easy to please you know!

Okay, I claim ZombieFlesh for some beaded hairsticks from her Wists, and something else too (I have a couple of possibilities in mind, but I need to check my supplies *lol*)  ;)


Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 18 - January 1-31
Post by: Samsara on January 18, 2007 09:16:12 AM
This is my fifth wish this round, two have been received, one is in transit and I'm in the UK.

My Wish list

Ethical & Allergies - I’m a vegetarian, so no animal products please (wool's okay, but leather, fur, suede or gelatine aren't!) I’m also allergic to nickel and some perfumes.
 
Jewellery
I would love a LOTR inspired Elven head-dress like the ones Arwen or Galadriel wear! (Okay, I can hope, can’t I?) Or any sort of Elven inspired jewellery?
(I’m allergic to Nickel though!)

I would love this lotus necklace!
http://beadwork.about.com/library/weekly/aa090899.htm

Knitted and Crocheted
Ron’s Animal Crackers Hat - http://www.woolgathering.net/archives/cat_rons_animal_crackers_hat.html
I think it has pigtails/braids and a tassel!

My babies would love you forever if you made a kitty pi!
http://theknittinggarden.com/gallery-march/mar-free-3.htm

I would absolutely LOVE a Captain Jack Arigurumi!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=104545.0
*sigh* If I can’t get Johnny Depp into my bed, I’ll make do with Jack Sparrow!! 

Hand knitted socks. I love hand-painted yarns, purples, jewel colours and rainbows! (I’m a UK size 4)
 
A fiber necklace like the ones from Enchanted earth! http://www.jade.enthuzed.net/11.htm
I love ‘Truffles’ and ‘Autumn Leaf’, actually, I love ‘em all!!

Sewn
A pair of Indian inspired or patchwork pillow cases in purple please.
Thanks Gavagai!  ;D

A dragon, cat, or dragonfly hoodie!

A kimono hoodie – This one’s pretty cool!
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=138494.new#new

A black wrap dress.

A long hippy skirt!

Some washable cloth pads, with maybe a travel purse with dirty/clean compartments please? (I gave up buying disposable pads and tampons last year and I’ve never looked back. My body feels so much healthier!) These ones are cute
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=86096.msg863244#msg863244

Artwork
I’d love a piece of Celtic artwork in purple for my living room wall. I don’t mind whether it’s a wall hanging or a picture!


DIY Kits
Needle felting…I’ve tried wet felting, but never needle felting! I’d love to have a go!

Resin casting…I’ve never tried it and would love to! I can’t get the stuff round here!

Lino cutting

Drop spindle spinning

Sock knitting kit

Supplies
Interesting material. The most exiting material I can find round here is sari material, which is pretty, but not practical for a lot of things!

Nickel-free or low-nickel coloured wire, preferable gauge 20 or higher (thicker stuff please) I can only get gold or silver-tone wire in my town!

Sakura glaze pens (Impossible to find in the UK!)

Japanese craft books or magazines.

Surprise me!

Anything from/inspired by my wists http://www.wists.com/Samsara

Esmerelda made me a pond life charm bracelet, Gavagai is making me a girlie skully bag and some cushion covers, all from my Wists! Esmerelda is also making me the Maidens Headdress from my Wists. Thanks ladies!  :D

About me

I’m a 38, I’m an art and pottery teacher, and I live in the UK with my BF, 3 cats and a german shepherd dog. I’m basically a hippy-chick, my favourite colours are purple, black, and emerald green, although any strong colours are also cool especially rainbows (I don’t like pastels and I can’t wear yellows, or yellow based browns or oranges as they really don’t suit me!) Also I'm not keen on floral fabrics, unless they're oriental or trippy hippy, or if they’re appliquéd onto something else – I’m really into appliqué at the moment! I love batiks, Indian fabrics and tie dyes. I enjoy yoga, reading and crafting, particularly new crafts! Favourite themes are cats, dragons, nature, trees, anything Celtic or Art-Nouveau, sci-fi and fantasy books and films.

I’ve included my Wists, but don’t feel obliged to produce exact copies, they’re more a general guideline of what I like or would like!
Here’s some extra information about me if you want! http://samsarasswapinfo.blogspot.com/

Thanks in advance for choosing me!!

*edited, I got the loom, too*

I claim Kristen81 for some TLC Essentials yarn, the rectangle loom and a Sudoko book - and we'll figure out something for the cover!

this is my 4th claim, 1 in transit, 2 received

I'm in Wisconsin, USA

wish list!

handspun yarn - any color, any weight, as long as it's enough to make something out of it << got some fabulous yarn from the efforts of la_crystelle and craftykate, and I"m hooked!  must have more!!

hand painted yarn - do you love to Kool-Aid dye?  i'm in an apartment, and I'm massively afraid to try it here... so if you love to dye the yarn (specially the painted technique) and wanted to send the results, I'd probably be your best friend for life!

felting yarn - bright colors, reds, burgundy, blues are favorites  << got some amazing wool today from xladyluckx, and i want more!!  i have so many projects in mind...

squares to make a quilt - 6" x 6", please.  I'll piece everything together (and post the results). <<< Thanks, xLadyLuckx - and yes, I want more!!

Unusual writing weapons... i mean, i don't want it to leak all over my purse, but if you had working fountain pens that you just don't use anymore, I'd be delighted to put them back to work!

anything inspired by my wist  http://www.wists.com/Dulcinea

almost anything mickey mouse (but not minnie mouse or other characters, please)

almost anything dragonflys - i really like dragonflies

thick athletic socks with slouchy cuffs - on my wist, there's a pair for the style I like

anything to decorate my BR - colors are off white, sea-foam green, ocean shades through to a toasty light brown

squares to make an afghan -  6" x 6", I think.  I decided I wanted a new afghan, so if you wanted to use up stash, I'll put them all together

grab bag/box of assorted craft supplies - ribbon, cool buttons, fat quarters, different color spools of thread - pretty much anything you have too much of and want to pass along, I just cleaned out my sewing box from all the mess, and it's looking really empty!

felted case for my digital camera - so i don't scratch the screen - PM for dimensions. << already picked in the January wishlist swap, thanks!

Anything Philadelphia eagles football for my son, who loves them

long-shots - I could really use some trousers and/or button down shirts for work - PM for sizing

turtleneck shirts for winter - almost anything, I live in them in the wintertime - PM for sizing

a bubba*tink style wallet - need LOTS of spaces for cards, since I have every rewards type card known to mankind << la_chrystelle is my hero!!

Address labels, for sending out all our packages - PM for details << Thank you, Devilninny!!


... right... about me.  I'm the old lady in the crowd, the one peering over the bifocals (until next week when i get the NEW bifocals).  I have 2 teenagers, and my day job is a computer programmer.  I have no allergies, no issues with animal products, would prefer to avoid religion/religion articles and politics at all costs.... my favorite colors are the jewel tones, think ruby, sapphire, emerald... i don't do terribly well with pastels.  We live in an apartment, where space is always at a premium... so small things that sit on tables and shelves and don't do anything except collect dust aren't a great thing here.

Thanks in advance to anyone who chooses me

I claim mlscotti74 for a wristlet or two inspired by her wists.  This is my 4th wish one has been recieved so this puts me back in the red (will the post office deliver already so I can pick more often!) I can not stop making these things!  I just love them!
lis in a sec!

I am in Huntsville, AL... living it up with the kids, the dog, the husband and the craft room!  I have tried to add a bunch of stuff to my list.. and another list is on my cheesy for craftster use website  (see signature line)

Here's my wish list...!

DIY kits!
I love love love the idea of diy kits!
Here are a few ideas.. If you rock at something else, I might be interested as well!
How to....
make those Bubbatink wallets
silk screen tshirts
bookbinding - make Logan happy.  He makes books everyday!
paper making  - I can get a used blender or whatever.
resin pendants & jewelry (I am in love with this idea!)
how to make clay beads

Supplies - I love supplies.  I am such a diy person I just love supplies!

***sewing stuff -I am in love with my sewing machine. Funny. I used to hate it now I can't even think of being apart from it!
*fabric - really cool designs.. think of Craftster reuse!
*notions - I have TONS of bias tape little of anything else.  If you send it I will find use for it!
*Ribbons for sewing projects - washable!
*buttons - I will never have enough buttons!  If I had a room full of them I would still want more!
*thread - you would shake your head at my limited thread color selection.  It is embarassing.
*snaps - fun ones I don't see many that aren't boring
***Crochet Stitch dictionaries/guides- I have 5 right now but really would love more! Second hand is good for those!
***wood cutouts for outdoor use of gnomes - I am going to woodburn the gnome features - all sizes up to 10 or 12" would be cool.
***Machine embroidery stuff - I just got an embroidery machine!
  stabilizers, thread, gift certificate to my local supply store?
***One of those super comfy soft crochet hooks - size G if I had to pick one next would be an H - G is what I use for stuffies... My palm has a callus on the callus from where my hook grates in to me!
***purse handles - second hand is great - I have lots of round ones already.  I am not too keen on bamboo.
***buttonhole scissors
***applique scissors - they are funny looking but handy!

Crafted things or store bought:
***Two fabric stuffed dragons - snuggly size for my kids - not beanie baby.  I love Simplicity 4063.  Not fleece or felt - the dog eats those materials!  There is another one - even better in my wists!
  I will personal trade for a second  - or claim me twice!  You know I will be claiming again!
***A fabric cover for my sewing machine - no pastels or neons or girly girl things.
***music - I like industrial, alternative no metal or noise.  pm me or stalk me. I am stuck in the 90's!   maybe if you have a used cd store nearby?  I really don't need a cd wallet though. got oodles of those.
***craft room organization - wall organizers, a small dry erase board, big  pretty or cool boxes, a cool wall clock...etc
***a futon cover for my queen sized futon - like that will ever happen, right? That is a biiiig wish!  You never know though.  It is just soooo ugly right now!  Just big and green.
***dog beds - but cat bed style - he likes to be in an oval nest!

Big wish for right now....
***Wooden painted/decorated letters (about 3-4" tall) for my boys' rooms doors - LOGAN and COLLIN I think they will love having their names on the doors. Have fun with them!  Or the supplies I need to do it myself - go wild! dinosaurs for Collin Space for Logan!

If I jam up the list... well.  I will add on as best as I can.
Check my wists... check my halfbaked website ... there are more ideas there!  I really am pretty easy to please you know!

Post by: Banga on January 20, 2007 05:34:57 AM
I claim craftydeb for supplies!
This is my second claim. I'm in the US.

About me: I'm Joanna, a 27 yr. old recently married, temporarily unemployed high school teacher/craftster/world traveler/scholar/rockstar. Okay, I made up the last one. I am obsessed with chocolate, live music, books, Top Chef, paper, shoes, travel, and shiny objects. I have a travel blog with a swap info page if you want to know anything more (Link in my sig!).

My list:
Jewelry:
- a nestlace with something other than eggs in it. Maybe a turtle?
- I would adore you if you made me a love letter necklace like Uli's on Project Runway! It can be all silver, or even a colored clay envelope if you want. It would be awesome if the little letter could have the initials J and E written on it. These are the best pics I can find! http://www.bravotv.com/Project_Runway/photos/season/3/designers/Uli_Herzner
- A version of one of these pendants with a leather cord http://www.spoonfedart.com/gallery/gallery.html
 *p.s. I prefer shorter necklaces to really long ones*

Craft stuff:
- Colorful roving! I'm a newly addicted felter and can't get enough!
- A grab bag of fun trims and ribbons
- Needle felting kit
- rubber stamps, ink pads in various colors

Knit/crochet:
- A calorimetry in mixed colors like this http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTcalorimetry.html Thanks esmerelda!
- I also love the "Dynomite" knucks! http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTknucks.html
- Knee socks, pedicure socks, or flip flop socks. I love solid neutrals or jewel tones, stripes, or argyle. I'm a US size 9-9 1/2, but you don't need to make them yourself!


Other:
- I'd love a passport holder like one of these! http://www.hollandcox.com/passportcase.html Durable and with lots of pockets, perfect for all my traveling, maybe in a fun print! Please make sure there is a pocket large enough to hold the passport:)
- A monster stuffie like this purple guy! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136306.40
- I love all things PaPaYa, one of their journals or cards would be awesome, but a handmade journal inspired by them would be awesome also!
http://shop.hannahgrey.com/index.php?cPath=290
- A swap journal - there is a bound one on my wists that is perfection
- A stenciled/screenprinted tee with John Travolta from his Saturday Night Fever days. I'd love it to have the headline "Don't hit the hair!" PM me if you want to do this cause I have a picture in my head that I can try to describe to you better!
- I adore screenprinted, stenciled, and embellished tees/tanks/hoodies. Women's small for tees and tanks, medium for a hoodie. I especially love zip up hoodies with large hoods cause I have a big head and lots of hair. See my wists or PM me for ideas.
- I'd love a medium sized purse, but with a strap/handle, not a clutch! Perhaps a fun or vintage print, there are tons on my wists if you need an idea.

And of course, anything from my lengthy wists!
Thanks in advance to the lovely craftster who chooses me!

About me......
I am 31, live in Massachusetts, travel a lot for work around the world (it is fun, but gets a little lonely in certain parts of the country where i don't know anyone), and i have 3 little doggies that i adore more than life itself. I love tattoos, mexicana, low brow art, vegas style stuff ( i collect anthing dice and playing card related). I volunteer for a small dog rescue which has been an amazing experience, so for those with doggies, you are instantly my friend.  I manage bands on the side, mostly metal and screamo type stuff which is totally fun. I like the heavier side of music but am known to listen to a lot of other types due to being bombarded by bands all the time. I work for an artist who is on the opposite side of the spectrum in terms of style that I like, but he has given me 13 years of opportunities and happiness for the most part so I am grateful no matter what people say about him......
Other than that I just try to enjoy making crafts, especially new challenges and have fun creating! I have met so many wonderful people swapping and that for me is the best part at the end of the day. Due to the travel I have been able to meet a couple of the girls in person which is totally awesome! Thanks for looking at my list and feel free to ask any questions! Rock on!

I claim Kitty1256 for a college care kit - food stuff, and probably some knitting stuff, too

This is my 5th claim, 3 received and 1 getting sent out tomorrow - and I"m in wisconsin.

wish list!

handspun yarn - any color, any weight, as long as it's enough to make something out of it << got some fabulous yarn from the efforts of la_crystelle and craftykate, and I"m hooked!  must have more!!

hand painted yarn - do you love to Kool-Aid dye?  i'm in an apartment, and I'm massively afraid to try it here... so if you love to dye the yarn (specially the painted technique) and wanted to send the results, I'd probably be your best friend for life!

felting yarn - bright colors, reds, burgundy, blues are favorites  << got some amazing wool today from xladyluckx, and i want more!!  i have so many projects in mind...

squares to make a quilt - 6" x 6", please.  I'll piece everything together (and post the results). <<< Thanks, xLadyLuckx - and yes, I want more!!

Unusual writing weapons... i mean, i don't want it to leak all over my purse, but if you had working fountain pens that you just don't use anymore, I'd be delighted to put them back to work!

anything inspired by my wist  http://www.wists.com/Dulcinea

almost anything mickey mouse (but not minnie mouse or other characters, please)

almost anything dragonflys - i really like dragonflies

thick athletic socks with slouchy cuffs - on my wist, there's a pair for the style I like

anything to decorate my BR - colors are off white, sea-foam green, ocean shades through to a toasty light brown

squares to make an afghan -  6" x 6", I think.  I decided I wanted a new afghan, so if you wanted to use up stash, I'll put them all together

grab bag/box of assorted craft supplies - ribbon, cool buttons, fat quarters, different color spools of thread - pretty much anything you have too much of and want to pass along, I just cleaned out my sewing box from all the mess, and it's looking really empty!

felted case for my digital camera - so i don't scratch the screen - PM for dimensions. << already picked in the January wishlist swap, thanks!

Anything Philadelphia eagles football for my son, who loves them

long-shots - I could really use some trousers and/or button down shirts for work - PM for sizing

turtleneck shirts for winter - almost anything, I live in them in the wintertime - PM for sizing

a bubba*tink style wallet - need LOTS of spaces for cards, since I have every rewards type card known to mankind << la_chrystelle is my hero!!

Address labels, for sending out all our packages - PM for details << Thank you, Devilninny!!


... right... about me.  I'm the old lady in the crowd, the one peering over the bifocals (until next week when i get the NEW bifocals).  I have 2 teenagers, and my day job is a computer programmer.  I have no allergies, no issues with animal products, would prefer to avoid religion/religion articles and politics at all costs.... my favorite colors are the jewel tones, think ruby, sapphire, emerald... i don't do terribly well with pastels.  We live in an apartment, where space is always at a premium... so small things that sit on tables and shelves and don't do anything except collect dust aren't a great thing here.

Thanks in advance to anyone who chooses me

I am 31, live in Massachusetts, travel a lot for work around the world (it is fun, but gets a little lonely in certain parts of the country where i don't know anyone), and i have 3 little doggies that i adore more than life itself. I love tattoos, mexicana, low brow art, vegas style stuff ( i collect anthing dice and playing card related). I volunteer for a small dog rescue which has been an amazing experience, so for those with doggies, you are instantly my friend.  I manage bands on the side, mostly metal and screamo type stuff which is totally fun. I like the heavier side of music but am known to listen to a lot of other types due to being bombarded by bands all the time. I work for an artist who is on the opposite side of the spectrum in terms of style that I like, but he has given me 13 years of opportunities and happiness for the most part so I am grateful no matter what people say about him......
Other than that I just try to enjoy making crafts, especially new challenges and have fun creating! I have met so many wonderful people swapping and that for me is the best part at the end of the day. Due to the travel I have been able to meet a couple of the girls in person which is totally awesome! Thanks for looking at my list and feel free to ask any questions! Rock on!

Post by: GatsbyGirl on January 24, 2007 09:06:40 AM
I claim xladyluckx for embroidered tea towels. This is my second claim, with one sent and zero received.

Hi there. I'm a thirtysomething writer/editor who lives in Los Angeles with my husband and two cats, but my heart truly resides in Texas. My favorite holidays are Valentine's Day, Day of the Dead and the two weeks before Christmas when everyone has the holiday spirit. I drive a cake batter yellow VW bug, but my second vehicle is a pink scooter. My interests include TV, food and chick lit (not always in that order). My favorite era is that gray one between Mod and Glam (think Andy Warhol/The Factory/Velvet Undergound), followed by the 1920s. If I have one regret it's that I don't have the bone structure to wear my hair super short like Mia Farrow's in "Rosemary's Baby." I'm currently into chocolate brown and those colors that go with it -- turquoise, pink -- but I also have a weakness for poppy Gerber daisy colors like pink and orange with a bit of burgundy thrown in. I try to stop eating three hours before bed. I don't always succeed. I prefer silver to gold, gloss to matte, cashmere to silk, heels to flats, red wine to white (champagne to both), pears to apples.

Things my little heart desires:

Definitely check out my wists. It's small, but should/shall be growing: http://www.wists.com/GatsbyGirl

Postage Stamp/Slide necklace -- And if you use the Wonder Woman stamp, you would truly be my new favorite person

Nancy Drew book clutch purse

Long-sleeved t-shirt with applique and/or embroidery (size Medium)

Funky, crafty wrap skirt (I'm a 6, but I guess with a wrap skirt it doesn't matter)

Anything (purse, clothing, cards, etc.) with felt applique

Fused glass pendant

A vinyl coin purse with a zipper. I need one for my car (damn LA parking meters). I've always liked the looks of these: http://www.stitchpixie.com/

A knit corset tee -- http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_4920958,00.html (I don't crochet or knit, so I have no idea how complicated this is, so if you're laughing now and going "In her dreams" I completely understand)

A small mosaic bowl

A sock monkey

Pink Beaded Tree of Life pendant

Vintage (40s to the 70s, with an emphasis on the 50s and 60s) Craft kits. For some reason, I love those self-contained, "Here's the instructions. Here's the supplies. Go crazy." deals, especially older ones. Extra especially if sequins are involved.

Vintage ('60s) Barbie doll anything -- fabric, patterns, clothes, accessories

Geegaws and Supplies:
   Wire cookie cutters
   Paper Dolls
   Girl/Romance/Fashion Comics
   Fabric -- Mod prints, anything in pinks and browns (seperately, or together), flocked (or just looks like flocked wallpaper), patterned oil cloth, fun toile (as opposed to little old lady toile), sock monkey, Michael Miller ... .
   Tile beads (you know the ones: look like dominoes, but have a hole drilled through it, ready to be made into a pendant/charm)
   Plastic charms
   Rhinestones
   Super cool buttons
   Iron-on appliques/patches
   Art books (anything with good decoupageable images)
   Patterned scrapbooking paper/giftwrap
   Japanese felt mascots/minatures/food craft books

Oh, and I know no one will make me this, but while rewatching "Goblet of Fire" I went, "I want one of those," about the hats the girls of Beauxbatons Academy wear. I assume you could do it out of felt, but have no idea where to begin: http://www.comingsoon.net/cgi-bin/imageFolio.cgi?action=view&link=Fantasy/Harry_Potter/Harry_Potter_and_the_Goblet_of_Fire&image=gobletoffire78.jpg&img=9&tt=

Thanks y'all!

I claim Miss Mermaid for something from her Wists.

Printed cotton quilting fabric for my stash - especially imported Japanese fabric or fabric with typography on it

Screenprinted tee shirts or Hoody - I'm a small and completely a tee shirt/hoody girl, I'll wear your designs with pride. Anything with Jarvis Cocker, I love Katamari, or The Mighty Boosh on it would be a bonus.

I claim Maradoll32 for fabric. I will send some pictures of fabric for you to choose from.

I'm 30 years old, work as a philosophy/psychology teacher, live with my boyfriend and four teletubbies ( ;D) in Uppsala, Sweden. And I wish for...

Craft supplies:

Soldering/Microscope slide pendant kit (never tried before)

Shrinky dinks for inkjet printer and/or strange colour shrinky dinks (I think there is a black kind)

Material for printing (water-proof) on fabric (bubble jet set?)

Crafting/Sewing themed metal charms (like scissors or something, to be used for making jewelry)

Silver plated chain to make necklaces and other jewelry

Kit for making animals and other creatures/decoration from beads, things like these: http://www.beadjewelrymaking.com/browse_all.html but maybe not too complex ones to start with, since I’m a beginner.

A kit for some kind of craft I haven't tried yet. Feel free to PM me about that.

Glass marbles, especially of this shape:
http://www.wholesalersusainc.com/glass-squares-clear-3x3x1cm-p-702.html
The squares, rectangles and circles with holes in them on the same site are also interesting, and coloured square marbles also... Just different shaped glass thingies to put pictures behind really... and/or coloured ones for rings:
http://www.plainmabel.com/ckshop.php?item=1168&ret=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.plainmabel.com%2Fckshop.php%3Fpage%3D1%26category%3D4




Crafted things:

Large calendar (to hang on the wall) with squares for each day where you have room to write something. Themes could be geometrical shapes/modern art, the teletubbies, crafting, black and white... or look to my wists for ideas.

Simple knitted cardigan (fitted, is that the word?) preferably in black or greyscale colours.

Knitted things, since I don't knit (yet). See my wists for example of things I like.



Other

Craft books/magazines with fun new projects (not too traditional stuff) (in English or German (well, Swedish is good as well  :D))


And of course anything from my evergrowing wist. http://www.wists.com/gavagai


General note: No batik please.

This is my sixth claim this round (3 received, 2 outstanding)

I am in the uK, and my list goes a little something like this:

2. And a pair for me!  I have a fabric wist at www.wists.com/esmereldafabrics , and again, flannel or cotton only please.  Alternatively, see below for likes and dislikes

3. Jewellry findings (especially those french hooks for earrings) and beads for jewellry making.

4. A copy of Knitscene - either Autumn 2006 or Spring 2007, or, you know, both if you're feeling generous!! Thanks, Miss M!!

5. Any of the Interweave Knits Autumn/Winter editions from 2004, 2005, or 2006!

6. Amigurumi patterns

7. Hobbes - Looooooove!!!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=113448.0.  Any variation of this would be cool - amigurumi, felt stuffy, anything!  I love Hobbes!

8. Scrapbooking supplies - papers, glues, pens, inks, brads, anything really!! Thanks, mlsocci74!

9. Fabric - anything cool, I don't sew much, but I do hoard fabric!!  One of these days I want to make a grandmother's garden quilt, so if you wanted to send me scraps, that would be nice.

10. A bracelet inspired by this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=114722.msg1096139#msg1096139

11. A jewellry box (you can recon a second hand one, I don't mind).  At the moment my jewellry sits in a sad little cardboard box on my bedside table.

12. A water bottle (preferably a metal one, but again please feel free to recon a second hand one).  We have a water fountain at work and at the moment I refil a plastic bottle to hold my water, but I worry about chemicals leaching into the water.  So one like this http://www.adventureshop.co.uk/acatalog/Sigg_Adventure_Traveller_Classic.html, but with a crafty touch would be cool!

13. Anything from m'wists, although not the apple tote (Thanks gavagai!) or the bubba*tink wallet (Thanks, la_chrystelle!).  Also, igobylorib  claimed me for a wisty surprise, so you might want to check in with her on that!  And Dulcinea went A&B the CofD, and sent a frog, and a rabbit, and a lion amigurumi.

thanks in advance to anyone who picks me!  About me: I am 25, and live in London with my boyfriend of three years.  My favourite things include: summer days in the long grass, the night sky, snow, the stillness and the turbulence of the ocean.  Favourite themes include Christmas (forget Christmas in July, I love it all year round!); the ocean; birds, trees and forest animals; pirates; and stars.  My favourite colours are blues, greens, reds, purples, and browns, and I prefer rich, jewel shades, to brights.  I don't like neons or pastels!

I claim esmerelda for some fabric!

This is my third claim; one sent, one received.

I am in Ontario, Canada.

My wishlist:

crocheted/knitted corals/anenomes/other reef creatures (I am trying to build a crocheted coral reef around the base of my aquarium).  Look here for ideas http://www.theiff.org/exhibits/reef.html

tote bag, any style whatsoever, as long as it's roomy; I use them to store ongoing projects!

fibers other than wool for spinning (soy, angora, etc)

handspun yarn

recycled sari yarn or any other very unique yarn

a magic yarn ball (I had so much fun with the first one!)

200g of lace weight yarn in green, blue, or purple

something (tote bag? stuffie?) inspired by a sugar skull robot - the only example I have is a picture of a tattoo lol http://www.zhippo.com/NateBeaversHOSTED/images/gallery/nate%20beavers-robo%20skull-gallery1.jpg (http://www.zhippo.com/NateBeaversHOSTED/images/gallery/nate%20beavers-robo%20skull-gallery1.jpg)

a slide pendant inspired by the Vintage Fairies at www.sallyjean.com  I love the creative fairy with the saying "sometimes there was a storm in her brain".  I also love the art fairies with the saying "I must make art".  Or a Salvador Dali inspired one with the quote from my siggie.  Or a Van Gogh inspired one with the quote "I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate"

set of mini beaded icicles: I have a crochet christmas tree, maybe 16 inches tall, that I want to put beaded icicles on (they don't need to be white, but light colours/irridescent/translucent would be good, and 1.5 - 2 inches tall each).  I had planned on making them myself, but I have been having eye trouble and can't focus for long on small beads

polymer clay crochet hooks

fused glass pendant (I like ones that are kinda arty, or have a picture in them:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=137693.0
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=120160.0
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136530.0 
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136531.0 )

fabrics from around the world (kimono silks, african dyes & batiks, etc)

very sheer, see-through fabrics for layering on wallhangings - nets, tulles, scrims, gauzes, etc.

varied weights & types of stabilizers for machine embroidery (cut-away, tear-away, heat-away, wash-away) -- I want to play!

fabrics (fat quarters or small pieces, can be as small as 4" square or 6" square, small prints for quilts, or unique textures - I mostly make textile art wallhangings)

setacolor xpandaprint

back issues of Quilting Arts magazine (I have issues 21,22,23,24)

shiva paintstiks

About me: I am 34, soon to be 35.  I have a hubby, 3 year old daughter, dog, cat, lovebird, fish.  I work at home as a programmer.  The free time I get is mostly spent sewing, creating wallhanging art quilts, and knitting/crocheting.

I have a puppy and a bunny as pets, my puppy thinks they are friends but the bunny thinks differently! I love printed fabrics, fun vintage/retro ones, and bright loud fabrics as well. I’m really into dolls right now, specifically Blythe, Pullips and DALs and have my fifth doll coming to me soon.

I'm a 33 yo SAHM with 4 kids living in Acton, Ontario trying to fit my art-making in between dinners, naps and playdates....my favorite colours are black, red, purple, cobalt.  I really dislike pastels.  I adore skulls, greenmen, cool stripey-legged dolls, medieval stuph, and general goth-y goodness.  I love ephemera, embellishing, and anything old and crusty....yum. I've become an ATC-aholic!!! But duct-tape and I are in a "business, not for pleasure" relationship...I use too much of it around the house to fix stuff

About me......
I am 31, live in Massachusetts, travel a lot for work around the world (it is fun, but gets a little lonely in certain parts of the country where i don't know anyone), and i have 3 little doggies that i adore more than life itself. I love tattoos, mexicana, low brow art, vegas style stuff ( i collect anything dice and playing card related). I volunteer for a small dog rescue which has been an amazing experience, so for those with doggies, you are instantly my friend.  I manage bands on the side, mostly metal and screamo type stuff which is totally fun. I like the heavier side of music but am known to listen to a lot of other types due to being bombarded by bands all the time. I work for an artist who is on the opposite side of the spectrum in terms of style that I like, but he has given me 13 years of opportunities and happiness for the most part so I am grateful no matter what people say about him......
Other than that I just try to enjoy making crafts, especially new challenges and have fun creating! I have met so many wonderful people swapping and that for me is the best part at the end of the day. Due to the travel I have been able to meet a couple of the girls in person which is totally awesome! Thanks for looking at my list and feel free to ask any questions! Rock on!

Veludo - I'm really sorry to have to say this but you are already at max - you have two claims and can not claim again until one is received.  I hate to be the bearer of that news and that I didn't catch it sooner -  I just now was updating the line on page one and noticed.

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72581.0

Any hand-spun yarn

Any hand-died yarn

Any knitting supplies (needles, left-over yarn that you might have, stitch markers, stitch holders, etc)

Anything having to do with "The Wizard of Oz" (my favorite movie)

A college care package with food (ramen noodles, kool aid, rice-a-roni, snacks, tea, coffee, etc). (Thanks to Dulcinea for my care package!  But college kids can always use extra care, if you feel like making one for me too!)

Felt Monster(s)

I badly need a clock in my apartment

Your old issues of crafting magazines that are just sitting around

Any original artwork or photography to hang on my walls in my apartment (I have white blank walls...boring!)

A tote bag to carry my knitting in

A new pillowcase, maybe with some cool quote embroydered on the hem or a quilted pillowcase, or even one made of cool fabric

I claim Kitty1256 for craft supplies, teas, and a surprise :)

This is my 4th claim, 1 in transit and 2 received.

I am in Ontario, Canada.

My wishlist:

crocheted/knitted corals/anenomes/other reef creatures (I am trying to build a crocheted coral reef around the base of my aquarium).  Look here for ideas http://www.theiff.org/exhibits/reef.html

fibers other than wool for spinning (soy, angora, etc)

handspun yarn

recycled sari yarn or any other very unique yarn

a magic yarn ball (I had so much fun with the first one!)

200g of lace weight yarn in green, blue, or purple

a slide pendant inspired by the Vintage Fairies at www.sallyjean.com  I love the creative fairy with the saying "sometimes there was a storm in her brain".  I also love the art fairies with the saying "I must make art".  Or a Salvador Dali inspired one with the quote from my siggie.  Or a Van Gogh inspired one with the quote "I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate"

set of mini beaded icicles: I have a crochet christmas tree, maybe 16 inches tall, that I want to put beaded icicles on (they don't need to be white, but light colours/irridescent/translucent would be good, and 1.5 - 2 inches tall each).  I had planned on making them myself, but I have been having eye trouble and can't focus for long on small beads

polymer clay crochet hooks

fused glass pendant (I like ones that are kinda arty, or have a picture in them:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=137693.0

varied weights & types of stabilizers for machine embroidery (cut-away, tear-away, heat-away, wash-away) -- I want to play!

setacolor xpandaprint

back issues of Quilting Arts magazine (I have issues 21,22,23,24)

shiva paintstiks

About me: I am 34, soon to be 35.  I have a hubby, 3 year old daughter, dog, cat, lovebird, fish.  I work at home as a programmer.  The free time I get is mostly spent sewing, creating wallhanging art quilts, and knitting/crocheting.

Post by: Yarn or Fabric on January 31, 2007 08:18:39 PM
Thank you all for making this such an awesome swap!

The swap is now closed for business - I am off to bed and first thing in the morning I will leave feedback for those that have their packages all delivered. For those that did not swap this time around, I will contact a moderator to have your in progress feedback removed.  For those that have packages yet to be delivered or even shipped (hey, everyone gets that two weeks you know!) your feedback will be updated as soon as your packages are safe and sound in their new homes.

I do want to say that the next few weeks is always the hardest for those that are in limbo - waiting for packages to get to where they are going.  Please be good to your sender and pm me as soon as you get your crafty goodies this way your sender can be released from the swap - especially those that are at their 5 max, getting feedback is always a welcomed thing.  I do live on my computer more or less and update as often as I get things in so as soon as I know, I will get you all updated and feedback taken care of.

I'll be still collecting dc#s and customs numbers from our US participants and requesting from the outside US participants to hold on to those receipts and if you do get a customs number of some sort, please pass it along to me.

I look forward to seeing more pics in the gallery.  It is probably my favorite thing about swapping - seeing the creativity that everyone here has.  Every OWS swap always opens me up to something that I had never seen/considered/tried and for that I have to thank everyone here.  You guys all are awesome! Wow, do I sound like I am winning an Emmy or what?

Thanks for tolerating my bookkeeping errors here or there, my dry sense of humor which can be misinterpretted unless you know me and my quirks.

The swap is officially taking a nap until it wakes up again in OWS19
as seen here...

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=149532.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=149532.0)
see you all on the other side...


oh one last thing - did anyone at all notice my Pee Wee's Big Adventure monologue on page 1????!!!  Aww come on - all swap long nobody said diddly about it!

HI everyone!
I have been trying to send emails to everyone that has a package to send, or a package in transit to see if I missed anything - but there are a lot of people with in transits - which is a great thing!

If you have gotten a package and it is not cleared and highlighted in purple, please get in touch with me so I can update!  I know you all have been really good to keep me on my toes and let me know if something was overlooked.  I have been trying to leave feedback for everyone as soon as I know something is cleared -

I have contacted a moderator concerning a missing in action package and also I am sure everyone has noticed we have 3 packages in red.  If anyone knows ZombieFlesh personally and knows if she is okay, can you contact me?  I will post up in the angel board soon - maybe later today for those 4 packages... so keep an eye out for that one!

Thank you all for  a great swap month!

I'm still waiting from marabu, but I sent to my Paper & ephemera round 5 -partner a day or two later and she hasn't received either. And my package to veludo travelled a long time too. And all these packages has been sent inside Europe, which normally takes only couple of days.

I just posted up a request for swap angels for

Kristen81
Esmerelda
Craftydeb

We might have another request coming for a mia package that some customs inspector might be enjoying right now... but we will cross that bridge in a few days.

Here is a link to the call for angels..

UPdate on the swap angels..
I have someone to angel for Kristen81
and two people have offered to angel for me - so I just don't want to pick a person so I am forwarding the info over to my super coorganizer.  I just feel kind of weird picking a person for myself and both are amazingly talented people both of which who I would loooooove to receive from!

Those are the angels I will be needing at this time.  I will be holding off on Esmerelda's just for a little bit. Thank you all!

I just posted for a swap angel in the angel board - Veludo's swap angel has gone MIA and did not send or hasn't answered pms.

If anyone would like to be her angel - just drop me a line!
