Organizers: sunspotted and TwiztidBlood

*IMPORTANT PM INFO*: When sending PMs, please label them as OWS 45 with one of the following tags:
Approval

Question

So when sending the questionnaire, the subject will read OWS 45 – Approval. When notifying us about sending and receiving packages, add the corresponding tag. If you just have a general question, label it as that. This will keep things organized for us!
When sending a sent/received PM, please include the 'Send by' date so my craziness will stay at a minimum.

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

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO THE ORGANIZERS VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

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 Ongoing Wish Swap 44.

Now, we want to put another link in the chain.  People will read that list and see if there is something they want to/can make from the list.

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 moves very 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.

After you have made your claim, you need to PM that person for their address.

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 for this month.  Do not choose over your given limit.
 If you already have one claim that will be sent out late, please don't claim again until that one is sent out.

Become a Friend of Craftster!  Go here: 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. Please make sure this is not you!

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.
IF YOU DO NOT SEND A MEDIUM ITEM YOU WILL BE GETTING NEGATIVE FEEDBACK.
( the medium can be a couple small items etc as long as it adds up to a medium )
( A medium item equals two hours of crafting time or 20$ worth of store bought items )

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
- did not follow item amount rule

Previous Swap Rounds:
If you are confused in any way by how this works, please look at some previous rounds:

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT POSTING PHOTOS IS STILL A REQUIREMENT FOR THIS SWAP.  IF YOU CAN'T TAKE PHOTOS, PLEASE MENTION IT TO THE PERSON WHO CLAIMS YOU.

sunspotted - Will be your organizer, in charge of your claims, your sends and your receives, and your approval.
TwiztidBlood - Will be co-organizer, in charge of the discussion thread.

Just in case...


Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 45
Post by: sunspotted on March 31, 2009 08:16:50 PM
Banga is up from Round 44.

About Me: I'm 29 and I'm in MI, USA, finally settled after 4 moves in less than 2 years! I'm currently living thrifty as a High School English teacher, trying to control my baby fever and my homesickness, and reading lots of books. I love chocolate, the ocean and the beach, books, live music, thrifting, vintage, shiny things, and soft things. Anyone who adds recipe cards, local ephemera, cool postage, or a local postcard to their package gets mucho love me! Tons more info in my blog - see the link in my signature.

Wishes:
 Crafted stuff:
- Linen, hemp, cotton or other natural fiber cloth napkins/placemats. My kitchen colors are cream, chocolate, and teal.
- A medium sized zippered mesh laundry bag for washing delicates in the washing machine (I reeaaally need one of these for tights!)
- Sweet baby girl clothing (size 24 mos.) in prints like Amy Butler, Freshcut or any similar styles of fabric. They don't need to be designer fabrics, that is just an idea of styles I like.
- unisex baby quilt with fabric like the above mentioned styles
- A ruby doll
- A matryoshhka brooch (this one is cool! http://www.flickr.com/photos/vasiliisa/3177818254/in/set-72157594249878925/) or a steampunk inspired brooch like the pendant I have wisted from this swap!
- A crocheted shawl (who knows, maybe one of you is super fast? :P https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=147576.0)
- A necklace like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/vasiliisa/2918853535/ with a chicken, goldfish, or Shakespeare!
- Or a necklace like this: http://www.wists.com/Banga/6c34f1dcf46ba8297315a06b3df1302f?offset=0
- Big Wish! A circle scarf in a jewel tone (like the ones at AA! I also saw a tute here someplace! http://store.americanapparel.net/circle-scarf.html)

If you would like to make me something wearable, please PM me for measurements and specifics :)
- I'm a skirt nut... see my wists for ideas
- Altered tees or tanks like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=106867.msg1016302#msg1016302 or this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10284568 (I have tons more on my wist for inspiration!)
- Screenprinted or stenciled tees (again, check my wist for ideas)
- a jumper! I love some of the jumpers I've seen around craftster... these are both fab, too!
http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/2377086294/in/pool-wardrobe_remix
http://www.flickr.com/photos/jessicarolland/411721501/
- A wide waist belt in yellow, red, teal, or a fun print
- An apron. I have a few to inspire you on my wist, just please make sure it is machine washable.
Thanks to Kalanit and redstar13!

Supplies:
- ink pads – any pigment ink,  archival and acid free
- any issues of Crap Hound! http://www.boingboing.net/2005/07/24/crap-hound-seminal-c.html
- I love rubber stamps, especially travel, victorian, zetti, nature themes or fun unusual stuff. Also any stamps for backgrounds, feathers, clocks, buildings, flourishes, swirls, trees, florals, checks, patterns...
- Anything from or in the style of altered art supplies sold on http://www.artchixstudio.com/,  or http://www.skybluepink.com/ etc.
- embossing inks and powders
- Vintage ephemera, text pages from old books (think crumbly old, not 80's old :))

Extras:
- I'd love anything inspired by anything I've wisted! Or feel free to check my blog for ideas!
- I love tights and knee socks (jewel tones or neutrals are great, textured, ribbed, argyle, striped whatever as long as they are not fluorescent!), I collect recipe cards, ephemera, vintage scarves, old books, aprons.

Thank you for choosing me!!

Just dropping a quick comment so that my blog, wist, and flickr links show up (since my wishlist is quoted and I did not include them in it!). They are in my signature! I will also add more items in case of stallage.

Happy April Fool's Day everyone!

I claim Banga for a wisty surprise and some vintage ephermera.

This is my 1st claim (0 sent, 0 received) and I am in the U.S. Here's a mini-bio with more info than you'll ever want.

I'm 33 and live in the lovely state of Michigan with my wonderful husband and our beagle, Snort. Snort's idea of the good life is eating, sleeping and eating her own poo. She's my fur-baby, and while we don't treat her like a human child, she is a member of our family.

I own an asphalt company along with my Dad and work about 70-80 hours a week in the summer, so I basically have no life, including crafting, from May through the end of October.

I'm a flittering crafter, I like to try everything once and the things I really enjoy, I keep up with. My current favorites are making jewelry, knitting (my first adult sweater is on the needles and it's getting really hard to keep going – yep, it’s still on the needles a year later!) and papercrafts, though I'm trying to get back into watercolors and really need to start using my pottery wheel again. Things I'd really like to try are resin, crochet, and needle felting.

I like sarcastic wit and jokes that make you think, and I seem to be experiencing a renewed love for the '80s. Favorite tv show of all time is The Office and favorite movies are Real Genius (with a very young Val Kilmer) and the original Willy Wonka (c'mon, a movie all about candy!) Favorite colors are ocean-y colors (greens & blues & browns) and jewel tones (ruby, emerald, sapphire, etc.). I’m also digging the black/white/grey combos lately.

I love anything to do with nature and waterfalls are my favorite places to check out. And my favorite food in the whole world is donuts. Best flavor explosion - a fresh, hot, plain cake donut, straight from the oven with a glass of apple cider. I dislike mean people, people who are stupid by choice, soy sauce, political campaigns, and having religion preached to me without an invitation.

Please feel free to look over my wists as I like everything on there, it’s updated, and wisty surprises are fun, fun, fun!!! Thank you so, so much to anyone who chooses me!

CRAFTED ITEMS

KNIT/CROCHET/YARN/NEEDLEWORK
  • knit socks – ankle or regular is fine (women’s size 8.5 or 9) 
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt beagle (I’ll fight ya for this one, Grieney!)
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt hippopotamus
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt cookie monster (actually, any of the old-school sesame street characters would be great and I’ve even got free patterns listed on my wist!)
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt pelican
  • art yarn
  • Knit shrug/wrap - on the off-chance that someone is just itchin’ to do one, I’ve got a few listed on my wist
  • handknit squares for a Craftster blanket – I have to double-check the sizes I’ve already gotten, but I think they were 4” square. Only request is that the yarn you use is machine washable.
  • Felted beads – pretty flexible on colors and sizes, I’d like to have a stash of these for art projects.
  • Funny, sarcastic cross stitches or embroideries (I can frame 'em) - I've got a couple on my wist, but feel free to just do something you think I'd like.
  • Embroidered pillowcases- For our master bedroom, colors are blues and greens. Some type of sea animals or theme would be awesome.

SEWN
  • some type of overnight bag that has a number of pockets to hold misc. toiletries and stuff (I’ve seen some Amy Butler ones, like the weekender bag, that are cute, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be that involved or fancy unless you feel like it – basic tote with interior pockets is fine by me. Oh, and it doesn't have to be fancy fabric, either.)
  • Placemats (set of 2, 4 or 6) - though I’m loving the log cabin look, anything would be sweet. My kitchen colors are sage green and burgundy
  • Napkins (matching or coordinating sets of 2, 4 or 6) – kitchen colors are sage green and burgundy
  • Pair of Strawberry Shortcake, Super Mario, Smurfs or PacMan long pajama pants or pajama shorts (any type of fabric is fine, PM for measurements but I wear a Nick and Nora’s size large if that helps)
  • Jacket/Sweater/Sweatshirt for Snort – I'd prefer something that has a neck band and belly wrap, rather than something I have to put her legs through. I can get you whatever measurements you need for this, but just for reference she's a 40lb beagle.


ART/PAPERCRAFTS
  • your artwork, whatever medium you like – you can check my wist for inspiration (you’ll see I love a lot of whimsical pieces), but I’ll love anything that isn’t political, religious or deal with death. And I do have ample counter top display room, so it doesn't have to be a wall hanging piece of artwork.
  • inchies or ACEOs
  • Fun To Do lists - I love making To Do lists and would love sarcastic, funny, witty or pretty To Do List pads. (Or you can just paper punch a hole in them and tie them with a pretty ribbon.) Very flexible on this one, just make something you think I would like. And I'd prefer smaller to larger - probably nothing larger than half of an 8.5x11 sheet of paper.

SILKSCREEN/IRON-ONS/ETC.
  • silkscreened t-shirt with the phrase    neat-o mosquito     (feel free to add a cool image if you have one) – women’s L or XL, 40” bust. I'm fine with the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom t-shirts that Walmart sells for about $4.50 in the men's section - size Large, please.
  • t-shirt like this one that errka made for me last year that I have worn and washed so much the graphic is falling apart!  – roughly a women’s large or XL, 40” bust. I'm fine with the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom t-shirts that Walmart sells for about $4.50 in the men's section - size Large, please.   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155224.msg1545936#msg1545936 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155224.msg1545936#msg1545936)


JEWELRY/ACCESSORIES
  • A glass or soldered or resin pendant – I’ve got examples on my wists of some I like, or choose an image you think I’d like!
  • Pelican pendant – sculpy, glass, collaged, resin, whatever!
  • Chunky necklaces or rings - in a style you think I might like, I've got some wisted for inspiration
  • Jewelry made with sea glass - inspiration on my wist, but I'm flexible
  • Any wisty-inspired jewelry - I've got lots on there


MISCELLANEOUS
  • pretty suncatchers
  • Anything on the theme of “1950s Happy Homemaker with a twist” (tongue-in-cheek kind of things) – notepad, pendant, artwork, tote, t-shirt, whatever!
  • ANYTHING ON MY WISTS – I’m constantly adding new items and there's lots, lots, lots of small/medium items on there!


CRAFTY-SUPPLY ITEMS
I like supplies, but am really trying to cut down on my stash, so please don't send me a supplies only package unless it's a single item that's medium sized all on its own. Thank you!
  • “Weird” or unique rubber or acrylic stamps. Zetti-type images, dancing animals, retro images, basically stuff you can’t find at JoAnn’s (I’ve got a few samples on my wists). Used is perfectly fine!
  • Random/unique/antique ephermera – anything you think I might find amusing, intriguing, weird or otherwise useful.
  • Old typewriter keys – The older the better. Even just the stickers or photos of the keys printed onto thick cardstock/chipboard would be cool.
  • Vintage/old keys – The older and rustier, the better. Skeleton keys are awesome, but anything that looks old is terrific.
  • Rusty metal stuff – Anything that I can use for altered art stuff, usually no bigger than a dollar bill or so.
  • Swarovski crystals - any color, any shape, any size

EXTRAS
  • Wade figurines
  • Broken watches
  • Broken bits of rhinestone jewelry

Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 45
Post by: phoenixfiredesigns on April 05, 2009 09:15:54 AM
I'm going to claim A2K for some notecards and maybe a surprise. :)

First claim this round.

About Me
Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. My favorite colors are jewel tones like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber. I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.) My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy. I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together. My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes. I love to read, I enjoy photography and I love all things Disney!

ALLERGIES
I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.


Crafts
*big wish* -- A robe like this one (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/a3a42670262dc240c5598e8e52c486a4?offset=0). It's just so lovely and I desperately need a robe. (3/4 length or long-sleeves, and mid-length overall. Not too short, not too long. I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*big wish* -- A tote like this one (http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/products/item/Miranda_Day_Bag/221/p2c50). I love and covet everything about it from the colors, fabric to the pattern.

*big wish -- A purse in this kind of style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/61667fb21176b1747a33ba44f03a0028?offset=0). I LOVE, LOVE LOVE this bag. The mix of the cord and the cable...? LOVE.

*big wish* -- This scarf in these exact colors (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=144573.msg1422950#msg1422950). I think this is one of the most perfect things ever. I don't really need scarves as a rule because I live in Florida, but I'd find reasons to wear one like this!

*big wish* -- A Slanket! (http://www.theslanket.com/) I almost bought a "snuggie" but the fabric was icky. (It was like thin felt.) I want soft, awesome microfiber fleece stuff, you know? Something long enough to cover my toes as well. I'm forever using a blanket on the couch so this would come in hand GREATLY.

*big wish* -- An Autumn Leaf Barrette (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18272578). I miss autumn since we don't get leaves changing colors here in Florida.

*big wish* -- A migraine therapy kit like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20774277). I have had migraines for more than 15 years and this kind of thing DOES help.

 -- Anything with a phoenix on it. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/phoenix) as inspiration.

 -- A purse like the first one here (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=298123.0) or like this (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/c5d2a19d60084c0229627371d990ae27?offset=0). I like the shape of both styles but it's really the look and colors of the fabric I'm really sold on. So something in similar colors/patterns would be great.

 -- A cool fitted tee like these. I love the colors of these examples. I wear a US size 4 or typically a size small or medium. I pretty much live in baby doll/fitted tees.
 - http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b8278a3977c184f0454e3661b44d5913?offset=0
 - http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b43d1d191ced6ae1babfd7c537c6ecc1?offset=0

 -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, glass mosaic item, etc. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself.

 -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft (no wool please because it itches me) I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. (HUGE bonus if it's argyle pattern. I don't know why but I love argyle.)

 -- Yoga pants! (examples: like this (http://www.barefootyoga.com/Detail.bok?no=697) or this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=275503.msg3115666;topicseen#msg3115666)) Roomy, 3/4 length or floor length (30" inseam) comfy, soft, cottony, not too tight on the waist. I lounge in them on my days off and I just love 'em. (US size 4 short length or I can send measurements if need be)
 
 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or whatever. Again, a skill I don't have but love.

 -- Things for my apartment in Teal Blue and Chocolate Brown. I love these colors together. And I'd love something in them for the home. A quilt or throw; art; kitchen accessories; pillows; curtains, etc., etc.

 -- Wrist warmers in this pattern. (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=98&d_id=8&lang=en) It's just utterly cool.

 -- Disney stuff. Be it characters (like Mickey, Figment, Belle, Mike & Sulley, etc.) or movies (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Monster's Inc., Lady and the Tramp, etc.) or the parks (I live near WDW but I've never been to Disneyland), or historical stuff (books on Walt or the making of the parks, etc.), or things I can use/take to/wear about any of the above, I LOVE DISNEY. So by all means, get creative! ;D

 -- Something (surprise me!) incorporating owls, penguins, bats, cats or red foxes. They're my favorite animals.

 -- Fused glass or glass (microscope) slide pendants you think I'd like.

 -- A ribbon organizer (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/a6a4463a2bc31406c13fdf0cab4bc218?offset=0). Doesn't have to be this fabric. It's more the idea and the style of storage that I like here. Chocolate/Teal color combo would be great as would fun/cute fabric or prints (like owls or something.)

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns) or my wishlist (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/wishlist/397IKAEGOJ51E/), or the colors I like and see what you can make that you think I'd like.


Craft Supplies
 
-- Sewing stuff: Fabricgasm! I'm a new sewer so I covet fabrics now. And/or Sewing notions, tools or other helpful stuff a newbie sewer would need/covet/want/drool over. (Threads, buttons, snaps, etc.) Thanks missgabbielynn! Leaving it up though since you can never have enough fabric and such! ;)

 -- Complete Guide To Sewing Book in either this new edition (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0762104201) or this older edition (http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Guide-Sewing-Step-Step/dp/0888502478). I'm still a very novice sewer who could make use of a reference book like this. (Especially since no one I know locally sews!)

 -- Doodle Stitching book like this (http://www.amazon.com/Doodle-Stitching-Fresh-Embroidery-Beginners/dp/1600590616/ref=wl_it_dp?ie=UTF8&coliid=I3U1KSGKRZ8M28&colid=397IKAEGOJ51E). I've never tried it but it seems like it might be fun.

 -- Starter resin kit/supplies (resin, molds, etc.)

 -- Starter rubber stamp carving stuff. (Maybe a kit or items like tools, the rubber to carve into, how-to/instructions, etc.)

 -- Gemstones and gemstone beads. In every shape, size and color. Donuts, cabs, chips - anything! I LOVE working with gemstones and I can never, ever have enough.

 -- Lampwork beads.

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such. Also, I love Swarovski crystal, unique clasps or toggles, and jewelry wire in 16 gauge and 24 gauge in any color. Gemstone chips are awesome as well since I make Tree of Life pendants with them.


Extras
-- Tea! Especially fruity ones.

 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.

 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)

 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)

 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! ;D

I claim bsonlytoots for a hanging wall organizer

Claim #1 this round

I am in my late 20s, full time SAHM to my 15 month old daughter, and part time childcare worker.  I live in the Denver, CO area.  Prior to my SAHM-ing, I was an elementary music teacher, so I love all things musical!  Crafts I like to do include scrapbooking, knitting, and sewing; although I do dabble in lots of different things.  I love earthy colors, especially browns, greens, grays, and blues.   I dislike neons, licensed cartoon caracters (think Dora, Disney, etc.), and skulls.

Crafts:

** Knitted or crocheted longies, shorties, or skirty for my munchkin – PM me for exact measurements, but she’s pretty much a medium
Yummy handspun yarn goodness
Sewing machine cover in a fun fabric
Skirt like this one  http://wists.com/6a3f325dcfa1a05b96d4c8f2e1d66085?q=skirt&offset=0 – PM me for sizing info
** Cloth pads – kinda hypocritical to cloth diaper, but use disposable pads, huh? 
** Vintage-y decorated tshirts, size L (I like the longer styles of tshirts) Examples on my wists
Knit socks, legwarmers, fingerless gloves, – do you get that I am constantly cold during the winter?  Recycled is good, too – I’ve seen some neat legwarmers made from recycled sweaters!
Re-usable sandwich wraps
Everyday cloth napkins – a set of 6 would be great, my kitchen is sage green, kind of a French country feel   thanks freestyle!  I could use one more set, maybe chocolate brown or tan?
Placemats maybe to match my napkins?  Or not, just placemats to match my kitchen would be great! 
Hooded scarf - knitted, this pattern http://wists.com/musicalmama/a9c6576c627a40e4a0f6347b0d987717?offset=0
Monster hat for my munchkin
Vintage inspired apron, examples on my wists
Penguin, owl, cat, or octopus amigurumi or stuffy, or any kind, really thanks antarcticraft!  You can never have too many stuffies!
Embroidered pillowcases for the master bedroom, quilt colors are either dark green, burgundy and pink, or dark green, sage green, and a medium country blue – depending on which quilt I’m using.  I’m so lucky – I have two quilters in my family!  I can get you a photo of the quilts if you need it.
Girl Poppet – with fair skin (normal skin color) and some wild crazy hair color
Small to medium-sized pincushion – I have a monster huge octopus one that I LOVE, but it is not very mobile.  I would love one that could go with me all over.  Maybe a wrist pincushion!
Handmade pottery – a tea pot would be really great!
I like the idea of a ravelry surprise!  My favorites on ravelry are here: http://www.ravelry.com/people/musicalmama/favorites/patterns
A wists –y surprise

Supplies:

**Snap pliers for resin/plastic snaps
Resin/plastic snaps (mostly white, but other colors are good)
Vintage children’s book illustrations (fairy tale stories) – I’m decoupaging an end table for the munchkin’s room.  I don’t need the original illustrations, a good color copy will work just fine!
Cute fabric to make little girl’s clothing – at least a yard
Vintage clothing patterns for toddler girl
Waste canvas for cross-stitch
Penguin fabric, any fun patterned fabric
Men’s hoodie, size medium, without a zipper – plain black (I can’t find this anywhere!)
Embroidery stitch book/pattern book - I’m trying to get back into this.
Handspun yarn goodness
Natural fiber yarn (wool, alpaca, cotton, bamboo, etc)
Needle felting kit – I would love to learn this!
Polymer clay starter kit
Resin starter kit – I’d love to make some of those spoon pendants!
Spinning starter kit

Postcard/photo from where you live
Anything penguin-ey
Chocolate  mmmm  Chocolate
Tea

Post by: sunspotted on April 06, 2009 09:01:17 PM
I claim musiclady for ... a wisty surprise. 

This is my first claim, I'm in Canada and I'll BRB with my list.


Crafted Stuff (examples of most of these things can be found on my wist)

* Giant zippered WIP bag for toting around everything involved in making an afghan. 
* Black & white art for my walls - photography, sketches, charcoals (love), embroidery, anything.
* Bath poufs – knitted/crocheted.  White preferably please.
* Wind chimes - something silvery or coppery or wood and tinkly (as opposed to loud and clanky -- thanks claire313, but I have a huge deck so there's plenty of room for another set or two :)
* Body pillow cases in blues and greens.
* I broke my magnifying compact and I still haven’t replaced it, and I thought someone might want to make me a decorated one??  Yes/no??   Must be magnifying, I am old and blind.
* Container for spare change.  I'd prefer one with a large lid as opposed to a traditional piggy bank slot.
* HUGE WISH!!  Dog seat cover for my Jeep, any colour that goes with beige.  Large dogs, so sturdy fabric is necessary. 
* Car trash bag.
* Embroidered tea towels in fall colours.
* Notecards that are blank inside to include in swap packages.  Crafty ones would be particularly awesome.
* Soft eye mask that you put in the freezer.
* Light (colour and weight) head scarves.

* I have a wist (http://www.wists.com/sunspotted).  It’s growing every day and I would love anything from it!

Supplies (I live far away from any and all craft stores, supplies are like gold to me)

* Black and white patterned scrapbook paper, not all the same, full sized sheets to put on my walls.
* Yarn – I do not recognize the concept of too much yarn, it is impossible.  Nice acrylic is fine, worsted weight, I use it for everything including scrapghans, so scraps are fine too.  There’s no such thing as too much cotton (especially bright colours).  I've fallen in love with felting, so wool is fabulous, especially in blues and greens (for a kitty bed).  I’d also love to try fancy types that I can’t get here – soy, bamboo, hemp, wool blends, etc.  Especially bamboo.  I have a project in mind for my mom that requires 4x80g of a bamboo yarn.  A bright or jewel tone colour would be fantastic.  I hate buying online, I always get the colour wrong.  This being said, I do not recognize “novelty yarn” (including the evil boucle) as actual yarn.  No need to send any of that. 
* BIG ENORMOUS DESPERATE WISH - I need 24 oz. of a worsted weight acrylic yarn in a bright ocean-y blue colour for my niece's afghan.  My only local source has nothing suitable and the colours online are so off that I have given up (I have ordered two different blues and neither one is right).  Any brand is fine.
* Crochet hooks - bamboo handles any size or an S hook.
* Bright blue and bright green fabric, solids or patterns.  It’s for a patchwork quilt so smallish pieces are fine. 
* Scraps (no matter how small) of felt, any colours.
* Embroidery floss - white, light grey, light blue, light green and autumn colours.
* July/August Crochet Today! magazine.  Something went wrong with my subscription and they skipped that month.  Anybody done with theirs?
* Afghan patterns, especially the newer “best of” booklets that many yarn companies have.  The fancier, the better.
* Yarn bobbins.
* Seed beads, any colour.
* Soy wax.  I can't seem to find any locally.
* Black paint markers.
* Glue gun (used is fine and I'd love some glue to go with it), I keep giving mine away to the schools.  :)
* Tunisian crochet "kit", I’d love to learn but have no hooks or directions.
* Freezer Paper.

Extras

* I never say no to sugarless gum or favourite recipes (especially for baking). 
* Maldon sea salt.  I can't find it here, my grocery store won't order it and I am craving pretzels like crazy.
* Other foodie extras, I LOVE to bake.
* Surprise me!  I like useful things as opposed to purely decorative.  Storage ideas are particularly appreciated. 

About Me

Hi, I’m Allison, a 30-whatever year this is (39 now, I think) year old hermit from the wilds of Ontario.  Seriously, I have more deer and bears visit than people, and I’m okay with that.  I am a jeans and t-shirts (and parka and giant boots) kind of chick who is completely ready for the apocalypse and would be happy to share her rutabagas and pemmican making skills with the people of Craftster.  I have two large dogs and three cats that think they are dogs.  My primary craft is crochet though I’m attempting to work on my sewing, embroidery and knitting skills.   However, I have the attention span of a gnat, 47 different jobs and a 24 hour day is way too short.

I love nature and animals, music and books.  I like crafting for babies but would sooner chew off my own arm than have one.  I don’t have a favourite colour though I do believe that yellow is best used sparingly and bright teal is a tool of the devil.  I refuse to acknowledge the existence of neons.   Every time I mention blue or green in my list, I am thinking of brighter, clearer colours as opposed to the navy, forest, khaki ones - think sky blue, apple green, leaf green, light turquoise, etc.  I’m allergic to most metals and don’t wear jewelry.  I don't have a sweet tooth but I'm addicted to coffee, gum and potato chips.  I never use a sentence when I can use an entire paragraph and getting a package in the mail is enough to prompt me to gleeful, dorktastically bad dancing. 

Thanks in advance to whoever claims me, let me know if I stall.

About Me
Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. My favorite colors are jewel tones like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber. I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.) My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy. I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together. My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes. I love to read, I enjoy photography and I love all things Disney!

ALLERGIES
I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.


Crafts
*big wish* -- A robe like this one (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/a3a42670262dc240c5598e8e52c486a4?offset=0). It's just so lovely and I desperately need a robe. (3/4 length or long-sleeves, and mid-length overall. Not too short, not too long. I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*big wish* -- A tote like this one (http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/products/item/Miranda_Day_Bag/221/p2c50). I love and covet everything about it from the colors, fabric to the pattern.

*big wish -- A purse in this kind of style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/61667fb21176b1747a33ba44f03a0028?offset=0). I LOVE, LOVE LOVE this bag. The mix of the cord and the cable...? LOVE.

*big wish* -- This scarf in these exact colors (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=144573.msg1422950#msg1422950). I think this is one of the most perfect things ever. I don't really need scarves as a rule because I live in Florida, but I'd find reasons to wear one like this!

*big wish* -- A Slanket! (http://www.theslanket.com/) I almost bought a "snuggie" but the fabric was icky. (It was like thin felt.) I want soft, awesome microfiber fleece stuff, you know? Something long enough to cover my toes as well. I'm forever using a blanket on the couch so this would come in hand GREATLY.

*big wish* -- An Autumn Leaf Barrette (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18272578). I miss autumn since we don't get leaves changing colors here in Florida.

*big wish* -- A migraine therapy kit like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20774277). I have had migraines for more than 15 years and this kind of thing DOES help.

 -- Anything with a phoenix on it. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/phoenix) as inspiration.

 -- A purse like the first one here (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=298123.0) or like this (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/c5d2a19d60084c0229627371d990ae27?offset=0). I like the shape of both styles but it's really the look and colors of the fabric I'm really sold on. So something in similar colors/patterns would be great.

 -- A cool fitted tee like these. I love the colors of these examples. I wear a US size 4 or typically a size small or medium. I pretty much live in baby doll/fitted tees.
 - http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b8278a3977c184f0454e3661b44d5913?offset=0
 - http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b43d1d191ced6ae1babfd7c537c6ecc1?offset=0
thanks bkrenning4! I'm leaving it up though for more potential claims. You can never have enough tees

 -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, glass mosaic item, etc. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself.

 -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft (no wool please because it itches me) I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. (HUGE bonus if it's argyle pattern. I don't know why but I love argyle.)

 -- Yoga pants! (examples: like this (http://www.barefootyoga.com/Detail.bok?no=697) or this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=275503.msg3115666;topicseen#msg3115666)) Roomy, 3/4 length or floor length (30" inseam) comfy, soft, cottony, not too tight on the waist. I lounge in them on my days off and I just love 'em. (US size 4 short length or I can send measurements if need be)
 
 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or a bowl or a tea mug or whatever. Again, a skill I don't have but really love.

 -- Things for my apartment in Teal Blue and Chocolate Brown. I love these colors together. And I'd love something in them for the home. A quilt or throw; art; kitchen accessories; pillows; curtains, etc., etc.

 -- Wrist warmers in this pattern. (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=98&d_id=8&lang=en) It's just utterly cool.

 -- Disney stuff. Be it characters (like Mickey, Figment, Belle, Mike & Sulley, etc.) or movies (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Monster's Inc., Lady and the Tramp, etc.) or the parks (I live near WDW but I've never been to Disneyland), or historical stuff (books on Walt or the making of the parks, etc.), or things I can use/take to/wear about any of the above, I LOVE DISNEY. So by all means, get creative! ;D

 -- Something (surprise me!) incorporating owls, penguins, bats, cats or red foxes. They're my favorite animals. Note: At this point, I probably have enough owl stuffies/amis so something besides that please.

 -- Fused glass or glass (microscope) slide pendants you think I'd like.

 -- A ribbon organizer (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/a6a4463a2bc31406c13fdf0cab4bc218?offset=0). Doesn't have to be this fabric. It's more the idea and the style of storage that I like here. Chocolate/Teal color combo would be great as would fun/cute fabric or prints (like owls or something.)

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns) or my wishlist (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/wishlist/397IKAEGOJ51E/), or the colors I like and see what you can make that you think I'd like.


Craft Supplies
 
-- Sewing stuff: Fabricgasm! I'm a new sewer so I covet fabrics now. And/or Sewing notions, tools or other helpful stuff a newbie sewer would need/covet/want/drool over. (Threads, buttons, snaps, etc.)

 -- Complete Guide To Sewing Book in either this new edition (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0762104201) or this older edition (http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Guide-Sewing-Step-Step/dp/0888502478). I'm still a very novice sewer who could make use of a reference book like this. (Especially since no one I know locally sews!)

 -- Doodle Stitching book like this (http://www.amazon.com/Doodle-Stitching-Fresh-Embroidery-Beginners/dp/1600590616/ref=wl_it_dp?ie=UTF8&coliid=I3U1KSGKRZ8M28&colid=397IKAEGOJ51E). I've never tried it but it seems like it might be fun.

 -- Starter resin kit/supplies (resin, molds, etc.)

 -- Starter rubber stamp carving stuff. (Maybe a kit or items like tools, the rubber to carve into, how-to/instructions, etc.)

 -- Gemstones and gemstone beads. In every shape, size and color. Donuts, cabs, chips - anything! I LOVE working with gemstones and I can never, ever have enough.

 -- Lampwork beads.

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such. Also, I love Swarovski crystal, unique clasps or toggles, and jewelry wire in 16 gauge and 24 gauge in any color. Gemstone chips are awesome as well since I make Tree of Life pendants with them.


Extras
-- Tea! Especially fruity ones.

 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.

 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)

 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)

 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! ;D


Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 45
Post by: AsphaltQueen on April 07, 2009 09:22:58 PM
I claim phoenixfiredesigns for some owl inspired goodies.

This is my 2nd claim (1 sent, 0 received) and I am in the U.S. Here's a mini-bio with more info than you'll ever want.

I'm 33 and live in the lovely state of Michigan with my wonderful husband and our beagle, Snort. Snort's idea of the good life is eating, sleeping and eating her own poo. She's my fur-baby, and while we don't treat her like a human child, she is a member of our family.

I own an asphalt company along with my Dad and work about 70-80 hours a week in the summer, so I basically have no life, including crafting, from May through the end of October.

I'm a flittering crafter, I like to try everything once and the things I really enjoy, I keep up with. My current favorites are making jewelry, knitting (my first adult sweater is on the needles and it's getting really hard to keep going – yep, it’s still on the needles a year later!) and papercrafts, though I'm trying to get back into watercolors and really need to start using my pottery wheel again. Things I'd really like to try are resin, crochet, and needle felting.

I like sarcastic wit and jokes that make you think, and I seem to be experiencing a renewed love for the '80s. Favorite tv show of all time is The Office and favorite movies are Real Genius (with a very young Val Kilmer) and the original Willy Wonka (c'mon, a movie all about candy!) Favorite colors are ocean-y colors (greens & blues & browns) and jewel tones (ruby, emerald, sapphire, etc.). I’m also digging the black/white/grey combos lately.

I love anything to do with nature and waterfalls are my favorite places to check out. And my favorite food in the whole world is donuts. Best flavor explosion - a fresh, hot, plain cake donut, straight from the oven with a glass of apple cider. I dislike mean people, people who are stupid by choice, soy sauce, political campaigns, and having religion preached to me without an invitation.

Please feel free to look over my wists as I like everything on there, it’s updated, and wisty surprises are fun, fun, fun!!! Thank you so, so much to anyone who chooses me!

CRAFTED ITEMS

KNIT/CROCHET/YARN/NEEDLEWORK
  • knit socks – ankle or regular is fine (women’s size 8.5 or 9) 
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt beagle (I’ll fight ya for this one, Grieney!)
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt hippopotamus
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt cookie monster (actually, any of the old-school sesame street characters would be great and I’ve even got free patterns listed on my wist!)
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt pelican
  • art yarn
  • Knit shrug/wrap - on the off-chance that someone is just itchin’ to do one, I’ve got a few listed on my wist
  • handknit squares for a Craftster blanket – I have to double-check the sizes I’ve already gotten, but I think they were 4” square. Only request is that the yarn you use is machine washable.
  • Felted beads – pretty flexible on colors and sizes, I’d like to have a stash of these for art projects.
  • Funny, sarcastic cross stitches or embroideries (I can frame 'em) - I've got a couple on my wist, but feel free to just do something you think I'd like.
  • Embroidered pillowcases- For our master bedroom, colors are blues and greens. Some type of sea animals or theme would be awesome.

SEWN
  • some type of overnight bag that has a number of pockets to hold misc. toiletries and stuff (I’ve seen some Amy Butler ones, like the weekender bag, that are cute, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be that involved or fancy unless you feel like it – basic tote with interior pockets is fine by me. Oh, and it doesn't have to be fancy fabric, either.)
  • Placemats (set of 2, 4 or 6) - though I’m loving the log cabin look, anything would be sweet. My kitchen colors are sage green and burgundy
  • Napkins (matching or coordinating sets of 2, 4 or 6) – kitchen colors are sage green and burgundy
  • Pair of Strawberry Shortcake, Super Mario, Smurfs or PacMan long pajama pants or pajama shorts (any type of fabric is fine, PM for measurements but I wear a Nick and Nora’s size large if that helps)
  • Jacket/Sweater/Sweatshirt for Snort – I'd prefer something that has a neck band and belly wrap, rather than something I have to put her legs through. I can get you whatever measurements you need for this, but just for reference she's a 40lb beagle.


ART/PAPERCRAFTS
  • your artwork, whatever medium you like – you can check my wist for inspiration (you’ll see I love a lot of whimsical pieces), but I’ll love anything that isn’t political, religious or deal with death. And I do have ample counter top display room, so it doesn't have to be a wall hanging piece of artwork.
  • inchies or ACEOs
  • Fun To Do lists - I love making To Do lists and would love sarcastic, funny, witty or pretty To Do List pads. (Or you can just paper punch a hole in them and tie them with a pretty ribbon.) Very flexible on this one, just make something you think I would like. And I'd prefer smaller to larger - probably nothing larger than half of an 8.5x11 sheet of paper.

SILKSCREEN/IRON-ONS/ETC.
  • silkscreened t-shirt with the phrase    neat-o mosquito     (feel free to add a cool image if you have one) – women’s L or XL, 40” bust. I'm fine with the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom t-shirts that Walmart sells for about $4.50 in the men's section - size Large, please.
  • t-shirt like this one that errka made for me last year that I have worn and washed so much the graphic is falling apart!  – roughly a women’s large or XL, 40” bust. I'm fine with the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom t-shirts that Walmart sells for about $4.50 in the men's section - size Large, please.   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155224.msg1545936#msg1545936 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155224.msg1545936#msg1545936)


JEWELRY/ACCESSORIES
  • A fused glass or soldered or resin pendant – I’ve got examples on my wists of some I like, or choose an image you think I’d like!
  • Pelican pendant – sculpy, glass, collaged, resin, whatever!
  • Chunky necklaces or rings - in a style you think I might like, I've got some wisted for inspiration
  • Jewelry made with sea glass - inspiration on my wist, but I'm flexible
  • Any wisty-inspired jewelry - I've got lots on there


MISCELLANEOUS
  • pretty suncatchers
  • Anything on the theme of “1950s Happy Homemaker with a twist” (tongue-in-cheek kind of things) – notepad, pendant, artwork, tote, t-shirt, whatever!
  • ANYTHING ON MY WISTS – I’m constantly adding new items and there's lots, lots, lots of small/medium items on there!


CRAFTY-SUPPLY ITEMS
I like supplies, but am really trying to cut down on my stash, so please don't send me a supplies only package unless it's a single item that's medium sized all on its own. Thank you!
  • “Weird” or unique rubber or acrylic stamps. Zetti-type images, dancing animals, retro images, basically stuff you can’t find at JoAnn’s (I’ve got a few samples on my wists). Used is perfectly fine!
  • Random/unique/antique ephermera – anything you think I might find amusing, intriguing, weird or otherwise useful.
  • Old typewriter keys – The older the better. Even just the stickers or photos of the keys printed onto thick cardstock/chipboard would be cool.
  • Vintage/old keys – The older and rustier, the better. Skeleton keys are awesome, but anything that looks old is terrific.
  • Rusty metal stuff – Anything that I can use for altered art stuff, usually no bigger than a dollar bill or so.
  • Swarovski crystals - any color, any shape, any size

EXTRAS
  • Wade figurines
  • Broken watches
  • Broken bits of rhinestone jewelry

I claim AQ for knitted socks!
This is my 1st claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

I'm an ABD grad student in art history, 32, living in North Carolina.  I knit, sew, and am new to embroidery.  My aesthetic is very minimal--I try to surround myself with simple, beautiful, natural things.  William Morris said it best:  “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”  I love natural colors and materials, especially organic and sustainable, and various shades of grey, blue, green, and brown (and lovely clear red). 

Here's my wishlist.  Thank you!

lavender sachets – I’m making socks for everyone on my Xmas list this year, and I’d like to include a lavender sachet with each package.  Neutral colors and modern/ elegant fabrics would be best (think upholstery fabric or IKEA-type designs)

drawstring bags to use for “wrapping” gift socks.  Big enough to fit a pair of socks.  Neutral colors and modern/ elegant fabrics would be best (think upholstery fabric or IKEA-type designs).  Simple muslin or osanburg cloth with botanical –type stencils or stamps would be perfect!

hand-thrown green, brown, blue or purple ceramic bowls

hand-woven, -painted, -dyed, -printed, or -stenciled  textiles of any kind


SUPPLIES
pre-loved is more than fine for these!

wool yarn scraps --  Inspired by mimiw, I’m collecting scraps of wool (or other animal fiber) for a scrappy knitting project.  Send me the odds and ends of your projects--handspun scraps work too!  Animal fibers only, and at least 1 yard per scrap, please!   

needle-felting kit

dried lavender for making sachets

niddy-noddy

sock blockers in all sizes (kids, adult S, M, L)

blocking board

embroidery patterns --  Japanese, sublime stitching (especially artists’ series #7, #5, #3, chinese acrobats, vintage lamps, vital organs), clover (kitchen, animals, garden), wee wonderfuls, anything vintage / modern  (but no cutesy animals, country, or kitsch, please)

pom pom tree -- a type of pom pom maker (http://pages.e-yarn.com/6030/PictPage/1325219.html)

vintage nightgown and lingerie patterns, small-medium sizes

I'm going to claim jojo_modjo for unique jewelry with amethyst and silver.

Claim number 3 of 3 / 0 sent / 0 received

About Me
Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. My favorite colors are jewel tones like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber. I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.) My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy. I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together. My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes. I love to read, I enjoy photography and I love all things Disney!

ALLERGIES
I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.


Crafts
*big wish* -- A robe like this one (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/a3a42670262dc240c5598e8e52c486a4?offset=0). It's just so lovely and I desperately need a robe. (3/4 length or long-sleeves, and mid-length overall. Not too short, not too long. I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*big wish* -- A tote like this one (http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/products/item/Miranda_Day_Bag/221/p2c50). I love and covet everything about it from the colors, fabric to the pattern.

*big wish -- A purse in this kind of style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/61667fb21176b1747a33ba44f03a0028?offset=0). I LOVE, LOVE LOVE this bag. The mix of the cord and the cable...? LOVE.

*big wish* -- This scarf in these exact colors (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=144573.msg1422950#msg1422950). I think this is one of the most perfect things ever. I don't really need scarves as a rule because I live in Florida, but I'd find reasons to wear one like this!

*big wish* -- A Slanket! (http://www.theslanket.com/) I almost bought a "snuggie" but the fabric was icky. (It was like thin felt.) I want soft, awesome microfiber fleece stuff, you know? Something long enough to cover my toes as well. I'm forever using a blanket on the couch so this would come in hand GREATLY.

*big wish* -- An Autumn Leaf Barrette (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18272578). I miss autumn since we don't get leaves changing colors here in Florida.

*big wish* -- A migraine therapy kit like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20774277). I have had migraines for more than 15 years and this kind of thing DOES help.

 -- Anything with a phoenix on it. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/phoenix) as inspiration.

 -- A purse like the first one here (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=298123.0) or like this (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/c5d2a19d60084c0229627371d990ae27?offset=0). I like the shape of both styles but it's really the look and colors of the fabric I'm really sold on. So something in similar colors/patterns would be great.

 -- A cool fitted tee like these. I love the colors of these examples. I wear a US size 4 or typically a size small or medium. I pretty much live in baby doll/fitted tees.
 - http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b8278a3977c184f0454e3661b44d5913?offset=0
 - http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b43d1d191ced6ae1babfd7c537c6ecc1?offset=0
thanks bkrenning4! I'm leaving it up though for more potential claims. You can never have enough tees

 -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, glass mosaic item, etc. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself.

 -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft (no wool please because it itches me) I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. (HUGE bonus if it's argyle pattern. I don't know why but I love argyle.)

 -- Yoga pants! (examples: like this (http://www.barefootyoga.com/Detail.bok?no=697) or this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=275503.msg3115666;topicseen#msg3115666)) Roomy, 3/4 length or floor length (30" inseam) comfy, soft, cottony, not too tight on the waist. I lounge in them on my days off and I just love 'em. (US size 4 short length or I can send measurements if need be)
 
 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or a bowl or a tea mug or whatever. Again, a skill I don't have but really love.

 -- Things for my apartment in Teal Blue and Chocolate Brown. I love these colors together. And I'd love something in them for the home. A quilt or throw; art; kitchen accessories; pillows; curtains, etc., etc.

 -- Wrist warmers in this pattern. (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=98&d_id=8&lang=en) It's just utterly cool.

 -- Disney stuff. Be it characters (like Mickey, Figment, Belle, Mike & Sulley, etc.) or movies (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Monster's Inc., Lady and the Tramp, etc.) or the parks (I live near WDW but I've never been to Disneyland), or historical stuff (books on Walt or the making of the parks, etc.), or things I can use/take to/wear about any of the above, I LOVE DISNEY. So by all means, get creative! ;D

 -- Something (surprise me!) incorporating owls, penguins, bats, cats or red foxes. They're my favorite animals. Note: At this point, I probably have enough owl stuffies/amis so something besides that please.

 -- Fused glass or glass (microscope) slide pendants you think I'd like.

 -- A ribbon organizer (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/a6a4463a2bc31406c13fdf0cab4bc218?offset=0). Doesn't have to be this fabric. It's more the idea and the style of storage that I like here. Chocolate/Teal color combo would be great as would fun/cute fabric or prints (like owls or something.)

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns) or my wishlist (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/wishlist/397IKAEGOJ51E/), or the colors I like and see what you can make that you think I'd like.


Craft Supplies
 
-- Sewing stuff: Fabricgasm! I'm a new sewer so I covet fabrics now. And/or Sewing notions, tools or other helpful stuff a newbie sewer would need/covet/want/drool over. (Threads, buttons, snaps, etc.)

 -- Complete Guide To Sewing Book in either this new edition (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0762104201) or this older edition (http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Guide-Sewing-Step-Step/dp/0888502478). I'm still a very novice sewer who could make use of a reference book like this. (Especially since no one I know locally sews!)

 -- Doodle Stitching book like this (http://www.amazon.com/Doodle-Stitching-Fresh-Embroidery-Beginners/dp/1600590616/ref=wl_it_dp?ie=UTF8&coliid=I3U1KSGKRZ8M28&colid=397IKAEGOJ51E). I've never tried it but it seems like it might be fun.

 -- Starter resin kit/supplies (resin, molds, etc.)

 -- Starter rubber stamp carving stuff. (Maybe a kit or items like tools, the rubber to carve into, how-to/instructions, etc.)

 -- Gemstones and gemstone beads. In every shape, size and color. Donuts, cabs, chips - anything! I LOVE working with gemstones and I can never, ever have enough.

 -- Lampwork beads.

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such. Also, I love Swarovski crystal, unique clasps or toggles, and jewelry wire in 16 gauge and 24 gauge in any color. Gemstone chips are awesome as well since I make Tree of Life pendants with them.


Extras
-- Tea! Especially fruity ones.

 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.

 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)

 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)

 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! ;D

I claim tatatortuga for steampunk jewelry.

This is my 3rd claim (1 sent, 1 received) and I am in the U.S. Here's a mini-bio with more info than you'll ever want.

I'm 33 and live in the lovely state of Michigan with my wonderful husband and our beagle, Snort. Snort's idea of the good life is eating, sleeping and eating her own poo. She's my fur-baby, and while we don't treat her like a human child, she is a member of our family.

I own an asphalt company along with my Dad and work about 70-80 hours a week in the summer, so I basically have no life, including crafting, from May through the end of October.

I'm a flittering crafter, I like to try everything once and the things I really enjoy, I keep up with. My current favorites are making jewelry, knitting (my first adult sweater is on the needles and it's getting really hard to keep going – yep, it’s still on the needles a year later!) and papercrafts, though I'm trying to get back into watercolors and really need to start using my pottery wheel again. Things I'd really like to try are resin, crochet, and needle felting.

I like sarcastic wit and jokes that make you think, and I seem to be experiencing a renewed love for the '80s. Favorite tv show of all time is The Office and favorite movies are Real Genius (with a very young Val Kilmer) and the original Willy Wonka (c'mon, a movie all about candy!) Favorite colors are ocean-y colors (greens & blues & browns) and jewel tones (ruby, emerald, sapphire, etc.). I’m also digging the black/white/grey combos lately.

I love anything to do with nature and waterfalls are my favorite places to check out. And my favorite food in the whole world is donuts. Best flavor explosion - a fresh, hot, plain cake donut, straight from the oven with a glass of apple cider. I dislike mean people, people who are stupid by choice, soy sauce, political campaigns, and having religion preached to me without an invitation.

Please feel free to look over my wists as I like everything on there, it’s updated, and wisty surprises are fun, fun, fun!!! Thank you so, so much to anyone who chooses me!

CRAFTED ITEMS

KNIT/CROCHET/YARN/NEEDLEWORK
  • knit socks – ankle or regular is fine (women’s size 8.5 or 9) - thanks, onr!
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt hippopotamus
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt cookie monster (actually, any of the old-school sesame street characters would be great and I’ve even got free patterns listed on my wist!)
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt pelican
  • art yarn
  • Knit shrug/wrap - on the off-chance that someone is just itchin’ to do one, I’ve got a few listed on my wist
  • handknit squares for a Craftster blanket – I have to double-check the sizes I’ve already gotten, but I think they were 4” square. Only request is that the yarn you use is machine washable.
  • Felted beads – pretty flexible on colors and sizes, I’d like to have a stash of these for art projects.
  • Funny, sarcastic cross stitches or embroideries (I can frame 'em) - I've got a couple on my wist, but feel free to just do something you think I'd like.
  • Embroidered pillowcases- For our master bedroom, colors are blues and greens. Some type of sea animals or theme would be awesome.

SEWN
  • some type of overnight bag that has a number of pockets to hold misc. toiletries and stuff (I’ve seen some Amy Butler ones, like the weekender bag, that are cute, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be that involved or fancy unless you feel like it – basic tote with interior pockets is fine by me. Oh, and it doesn't have to be fancy fabric, either.)
  • Placemats (set of 2, 4 or 6) - though I’m loving the log cabin look, anything would be sweet. My kitchen colors are sage green and burgundy
  • Napkins (matching or coordinating sets of 2, 4 or 6) – kitchen colors are sage green and burgundy
  • Pair of Strawberry Shortcake, Super Mario, Smurfs or PacMan long pajama pants or pajama shorts (any type of fabric is fine, PM for measurements but I wear a Nick and Nora’s size large if that helps)
  • Jacket/Sweater/Sweatshirt for Snort – I'd prefer something that has a neck band and belly wrap, rather than something I have to put her legs through. I can get you whatever measurements you need for this, but just for reference she's a 40lb beagle.


ART/PAPERCRAFTS
  • your artwork, whatever medium you like – you can check my wist for inspiration (you’ll see I love a lot of whimsical pieces), but I’ll love anything that isn’t political, religious or deal with death. And I do have ample counter top display room, so it doesn't have to be a wall hanging piece of artwork.
  • inchies or ACEOs
  • Fun To Do lists - I love making To Do lists and would love sarcastic, funny, witty or pretty To Do List pads. (Or you can just paper punch a hole in them and tie them with a pretty ribbon.) Very flexible on this one, just make something you think I would like. And I'd prefer smaller to larger - probably nothing larger than half of an 8.5x11 sheet of paper.

SILKSCREEN/IRON-ONS/ETC.
  • silkscreened t-shirt with the phrase    neat-o mosquito     (feel free to add a cool image if you have one) – women’s L or XL, 40” bust. I'm fine with the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom t-shirts that Walmart sells for about $4.50 in the men's section - size Large, please.
  • t-shirt like this one that errka made for me last year that I have worn and washed so much the graphic is falling apart!  – roughly a women’s large or XL, 40” bust. I'm fine with the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom t-shirts that Walmart sells for about $4.50 in the men's section - size Large, please.   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155224.msg1545936#msg1545936 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155224.msg1545936#msg1545936)


JEWELRY/ACCESSORIES
  • A fused glass pendant – I’ve got examples on my wists of some I like, or choose an image you think I’d like!
  • Pelican pendant – sculpy, glass, collaged, resin, whatever!
  • Chunky necklaces or rings - in a style you think I might like, I've got some wisted for inspiration
  • Jewelry made with sea glass - inspiration on my wist, but I'm flexible
  • Any wisty-inspired jewelry - I've got lots on there


MISCELLANEOUS
  • pretty suncatchers
  • Anything on the theme of “1950s Happy Homemaker with a twist” (tongue-in-cheek kind of things) – notepad, pendant, artwork, tote, t-shirt, whatever!
  • ANYTHING ON MY WISTS – I’m constantly adding new items and there's lots, lots, lots of small/medium items on there!


CRAFTY-SUPPLY ITEMS
I like supplies, but am really trying to cut down on my stash, so please don't send me a supplies only package unless it's a single item that's medium sized all on its own. Thank you!
  • “Weird” or unique rubber or acrylic stamps. Zetti-type images, dancing animals, retro images, basically stuff you can’t find at JoAnn’s (I’ve got a few samples on my wists). Used is perfectly fine!
  • Random/unique/antique ephermera – anything you think I might find amusing, intriguing, weird or otherwise useful.
  • Old typewriter keys – The older the better. Even just the stickers or photos of the keys printed onto thick cardstock/chipboard would be cool.
  • Vintage/old keys – The older and rustier, the better. Skeleton keys are awesome, but anything that looks old is terrific.
  • Rusty metal stuff – Anything that I can use for altered art stuff, usually no bigger than a dollar bill or so.
  • Swarovski crystals - any color, any shape, any size

EXTRAS
  • Wade figurines
  • Broken watches
  • Broken bits of rhinestone jewelry

Hello! I'm Sabrina and I live in Florida! I'm a 27 year old SAHM of 5 kiddos, a hubby and a dog! I love to craft everything and love to try new stuff. I'm pretty easy to please, and LOVE getting handmade goodies! I have no allergies that matter when it comes to swapping!

My fave color is blue, I love brown and pink or brown and blue together. My hubby just enclosed our back porch into a HUGE craft room for me to lock myself craft away in! I would LOVE stuff to help my organize all my new space (more info below!) We bought annual passes to Disney this year and have been going quite often, so stuff to help keep control of 5 kids and all their crap is awesome! My next big project is redecorating our kitchen, so fun new handmade goodies for in there would be awesome too (again more info below!)


Crafts I would love to receive:

ANYTHING from my wists - use it as inspiration or make something exactly as is! Everything is up to date and has notes on it!
A sturdy tote with pockets/dividers of various sizes for use when I take the kids to Disney Thank you missdisney!
Funky Earrings - the funkier the better!
Felt, crochet or knit foods/supplies for the kids play kitchen
Crochet hook roll-preferably in grey, lime green, or sky blue (to match amy butler's faded china lotus fabric)
Candles- natural colors, red and cream or a mixture of the two would be great colors too, or something to match the craft room(see above)! I like nice crisp clean scents, florals are ok too, nothing fruity or cinnamon
Yummy soaps! I like all kinds of scents so I’m good with whatever!
A hanging wall organizer, in light blue, lime green or grey colors (again to match the craft room colors listed above) for my new craft room! Thank you musiclady!!
Fabric boxes, in random sizes and light blue, lime green, or grey colors (see above)
Magnetic tins, for my new craft room too! Deep or shallow doesn’t matter on size Thanks phoenixfiredesigns!
Jars, tins, baskets, buckets, bowls or anything else to help organize all the crap my crafting and 5 kids can accumulate! :)

I claim bsonlytoots for organizational accoutrements.  :D

This is my third claim this round.  (3,0,0)

Hi!  I’m addicted to knitting, though I love many other crafts as well!  A Michigan (USA) native, I am enamored of watery landscapes and northern hardwood forests.  My deepest wish is to live on a lake or river.  I love snow and wintery landscapes, cool colors and corny humor.  I love superheroes and mourn the fact that I’m fat and 50 – superhero material beyond repair.  ☺  I wist.   

Enough about me: 

Crafted Items

fabric covered tacks

poly clay decorated tacks

more silly face magnets (summertimerolls made me these: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=230187.msg2504439#msg2504439)  The kids at school love them like crazy!!!  It's a sure-fire way to help a child calm down:  "Why don't you take a look at my 'face of the day magnets' and show me your favorite?"

your rendering of my Jack Russell terrier in any medium (pencil, paint, embroidery, appliqué, etc.)

pottery, especially small bowls or mugs

moc-a-socs like these: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=290914.200

needle box https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155698.msg1616647#msg1616647

“posters” for my office featuring anti-bullying messages in any medium (pencil, paint, embroidery, etc.) Examples:  “Pick flowers, not fights!”, “ Horseplay hurts!  Please act human (fake it if you have to)”.  See this website for other ideas: http://catalog.instructionalimages.com/product_info.php?products_id=37{1}1 

Poetry journal with your favorite (or original) works included

Notecards – I love handcrafted notecards and use them for everything from swapping to thank you’s!  If you have sent me notecards in the past, I am either using them and loving them, or they are all gone!
  I'm putting cards on hold for awhile!  I have lots at the moment!  Thanks everyone and PFD!

Handspun yarn, any colors, any amount - I love handspun yarn!

Tawashi - I like this one, in knit or crochet: http://www.craftstylish.com/item/43848/how-to-crochet-a-tawashi

Embroidered pillow cases in quiet colors for the master bedroom which is blue, guest bedroom is grass green (dh is daring with color) -- the bedspread in there is a quilt made with "eyeballs in the jungle" fabric

Anything from my wist (unless it's marked as "received")!  http://www.wists.com/addicted2knitting



Supplies

learn to spin kit with drop spindle and roving

10 inch Harmony straight knitting needles, any size 4 -11 http://www.knitpicks.com/Straight+Harmony+Knitting+Needles_NDSTNHarmonyneedles.html

home decorator or upholstery fabric 

firm or extra firm stabilizer

fat quarters/fabric scraps

Books:

Extras

postcard from your town/country
tea, especially black (not a fancy flavor lover)  ☺

Thanks for choosing me!

Post by: sunspotted on April 10, 2009 02:48:43 PM
I claim A2K for ... upholstery fabric and various yarns and extras.

This is my second claim, I'm in Canada and I have a list here somewhere...


Crafted Stuff (examples of most of these things can be found on my wist)

* Giant zippered WIP bag for toting around everything involved in making an afghan. 
* Black & white art for my walls - photography, sketches, charcoals (love), embroidery, anything.
* Bath poufs – knitted/crocheted.  White preferably please.
* Wind chimes - something silvery or coppery or wood and tinkly (as opposed to loud and clanky -- thanks claire313, but I have a huge deck so there's plenty of room for another set or two :)
* Body pillow cases in blues and greens.
* I broke my magnifying compact and I still haven’t replaced it, and I thought someone might want to make me a decorated one??  Yes/no??   Must be magnifying, I am old and blind.
* Container for spare change.  I'd prefer one with a large lid as opposed to a traditional piggy bank slot.
* HUGE WISH!!  Dog seat cover for my Jeep, any colour that goes with beige.  Large dogs, so sturdy fabric is necessary. 
* Car trash bag.
* Embroidered tea towels in fall colours.
* Notecards that are blank inside to include in swap packages.  Crafty ones would be particularly awesome.  Nature themes are also welcome.
* Soft eye mask that you put in the freezer.
* Light (colour and weight) head scarves.

* I have a wist (http://www.wists.com/sunspotted).  It’s growing every day and I would love anything from or inspired by it!

Supplies (I live far away from any and all craft stores, supplies are like gold to me)

* Black and white patterned scrapbook paper, not all the same, full sized sheets to put on my walls.
* Yarn – I do not recognize the concept of too much yarn, it is impossible.  Nice acrylic is fine, worsted weight, I use it for everything including scrapghans, so scraps are fine too.  There’s no such thing as too much cotton (especially bright colours).  I've fallen in love with felting, so wool is fabulous, especially in blues and greens (for a kitty bed).  I’d also love to try fancy types that I can’t get here – soy, bamboo, hemp, wool blends, etc.  Especially bamboo.  I have a project in mind for my mom that requires 4x80g of a bamboo yarn.  A bright or jewel tone colour would be fantastic.  I hate buying online, I always get the colour wrong.  This being said, I do not recognize “novelty yarn” (including the evil boucle) as actual yarn.  No need to send any of that. 
* BIG ENORMOUS DESPERATE WISH - I need 24 oz. of a worsted weight acrylic yarn in a bright ocean-y blue colour for my niece's afghan.  My only local source has nothing suitable and the colours online are so off that I have given up (I have ordered two different blues and neither one is right).  Any brand is fine.  -- thanks musiclady
* Crochet hooks - bamboo handles any size or an S hook.
* Bright blue and bright green fabric, solids or patterns.  It’s for a patchwork quilt so smallish pieces are fine. 
* Scraps (no matter how small) of felt, any colours.
* Embroidery floss - white, light grey, light blue, light green and autumn colours.
* July/August Crochet Today! magazine.  Something went wrong with my subscription and they skipped that month.  Anybody done with theirs?
* Afghan patterns, especially the newer “best of” booklets that many yarn companies have.  The fancier, the better.
* Yarn bobbins.
* Seed beads, any colour.
* Soy wax.  I can't seem to find any locally.
* Black paint markers.
* Glue gun (used is fine and I'd love some glue to go with it), I keep giving mine away to the schools.  :)
* Tunisian crochet "kit", I’d love to learn but have no hooks or directions.
* Freezer Paper.

Extras

* I never say no to sugarless gum or favourite recipes (especially for baking). 
* Maldon sea salt.  I can't find it here, my grocery store won't order it and I am craving pretzels like crazy.
* Other foodie extras, I LOVE to bake.
* Surprise me!  I like useful things as opposed to purely decorative.  Storage ideas are particularly appreciated. 

About Me

Hi, I’m Allison, a 30-whatever year this is (39 now, I think) year old hermit from the wilds of Ontario.  Seriously, I have more deer and bears visit than people, and I’m okay with that.  I am a jeans and t-shirt kind of chick who is completely ready for the apocalypse and would be happy to share her rutabagas and pemmican making skills with the people of Craftster.  I have two large dogs and three cats that think they are dogs.  My primary craft is crochet though I’m attempting to work on my sewing, embroidery and knitting skills.   However, I have the attention span of a gnat, 47 different jobs and a 24 hour day is way too short.

I love nature and animals, music and books.  I like crafting for babies but would sooner chew off my own arm than have one.  I don’t have a favourite colour though I do believe that yellow is best used sparingly and bright teal is a tool of the devil.  I refuse to acknowledge the existence of neons.   Every time I mention blue or green in my list, I am thinking of brighter, clearer colours as opposed to the navy, forest, khaki ones - think sky blue, apple green, leaf green, light turquoise, etc.  I’m allergic to most metals and don’t wear much jewelry.  I don't have a sweet tooth but I'm addicted to coffee, gum and potato chips.  I never use a sentence when I can use an entire paragraph and getting a package in the mail is enough to prompt me to gleeful, dorktastically bad dancing. 

Thanks in advance to whoever claims me, let me know if I stall.

I claim sunspotted for soy wax and a wisty surprise.

This is my first claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

I am 31, currently live in Colorado USA and desperately want to move back home to Washington DC. Or a tropical island in the west Pacific, that would work too. I work as a research meteorologist, and in my spare time I help with technical stuff for community theater (sets, costumes, props) and have a community garden plot.  My two cats generously allow me to live in their apartment in exchange for feeding and petting them as well as paying rent.

In terms of crafting, I sew about 95% of my clothes and do a little craft sewing on the side. Plus the theater costumes, lots of sewing there.  I also like to wet felt  - not the kind of felting that involves yarn, but the kind that involves loose fibers, soap, water, and violence. I enjoy dyeing both fibers and fabric, and dabble in batik, shibori, discharge, and other aspects of dyeing. There are a few other crafts that I participate in lightly, and I also love to cook and eat asian food, except for sushi.

I mostly wear autumn colors - reds, oranges, yellows, warm greens, and browns. Blues and purples are nice, but are not colors that I can wear, and I only wear black when working a theater show.  I do not like pink, pastels, or anything girly. My apartment is extremely neutral with beige carpet and white walls, and has gigantic windows. I like things that are reused, thrifted, and repurposed.


Crafts

wall art - any medium. I love themes of trees, cats, swamps and carnivorous plants, and nature stuff in general.

hand knit socks - women's size 9, thick and chunky fiber is great!

window decorations - stained glass or sheer/translucent paintings/art to hang in my massive windows

funky wall clock - reconned would be great!

pillowcases - both bed pillow type or throw pillow (12x12, 14x14, or 18x18 all good). My sofa is electric tangerine, and any kind of color is good for bed pillows.

black tees - printed, painted, or otherwise decorated, that I can wear when doing tech work for plays.  Theater techie or stage manager type jokes/quotes would be amusing (I can find some for you or you can check google or cafepress), or broader themes such as trees, squid/octopus/cuttlefish, Farscape. I'd also love one with "if animal trapped call 410-844-6286" a la the Wire.

sweatshirts, similar to the tees above but any color.

anything inspired by my wists (see my profile for link)

handkerchiefs - any fabric, any decoration, preferably functional

fabric grocery/shopping bags

crafty goodness that celebrates Maryland or DC - cards, photos, art, shirts, shrines, anything!


Craft Supplies

vintage lace or other interesting fabric trims
notions such as zippers, buttons, snaps, rivets, velcro, grommets
feltable fiber (non-superwash wool)
holey cashmere sweaters for fulling
a book on screen printing - I have a kit but haven't tried it yet
dover type stencil or design books
commercial socks suitable for sock animals
books or patterns for sewing soft toys
scraps of interesting wool or fuzzy yarns that I can incorporate into felt projects


Extras

UTZ brand potato chips - little snack size bags - salt and pepper, salt and vinegar, crab, bbq, carolina bbq, or grandma utz


TIA for claiming me!

I claim ptarmic wumpus for wall art and possible wisty goodness.

This is my first claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

I'm currently living in Ann Arbor, MI with my boyfriend and his parents. I spend practically all my free time either crafting, reading, or watching horribly addicting reality tv. I'm a really laid-back type of person, I don't wear a lot of jewelry, make-up, etc. My boyfriend and I are planning on moving out soon so any sort of decorating/useful houseware stuff would be awesome. Also I'm trying to find the perfect things for my dad's and sister's impending birthdays (May!). All colors, except pastels and neons and excessive amounts of pink, are awesome, especially green. I love quirky animals/objects/anything. I love recycled craftiness, using found objects and materials and using it for a totally new purpose. I'm not allergic to anything that I'm aware of.

Post by: Velvet Rose on April 10, 2009 07:29:49 PM

I claim sheepBlue for fun ephemera. This is my first claim.
ABOUT ME

I live in Australia but I have only asked for lightwieght items - so hopefully I won't stall the swap.  ;)

I love creating things and am currently exploring papercrafts.

I love berry shades, dark reds, muted pinks & purples, leaf green, and chocolate brown.  No neons or black please, and I'm not too keen on yellow, orange, or navy.

I prefer natural fibres and fabrics to synthetic ones (for environmental and tactile reasons). I love vintage florals (pre 1970), vintage brocade/damask. baroque/rococo style prints, cotton velvet, botanical prints and fabrics with silhouettes of leaves or branches/trees like Joel Dewberry's ones. I'm not a fan of stripes, spots, plaids/checks, skulls, country/cutesy, or disney/anime stuff.

Please see my profile and wists for more info.

CRAFTED ITEMS

Crocheted cotton purse
I would love a small crocheted purse made from cotton yarn in dark reds, purples and  berry shades with a long shoulder strap & flap - big enough to hold my wallet, keys, & phone when I go on walks around the neighbourhood. One made from granny squares would be nice. Teaching Jonah made me a beautiful pastel one in the last round which I am using in the summer months and I would love one for winter as well.

Crocheted cotton drink bottle holders
I would love crocheted cotton drink bottle holders with a carrying strap for my children's water bottles. Both bottles are 750mls in size. My daughter likes reds, pinks and oranges and my son likes blues and greens. (No synthetic yarns please).

Drawstring bags
I would some cotton drawstring bags to carry my shoes and underwear when I go on vacation. See my colour and fabric preferences above.

Crocheted Cotton Flowers
I'm collecting crocheted flowers made with cotton yarn in all shades of pink to match the beautiful crocheted purse that I received in a previous round.

Knitted Woollen Socks
I would love a pair of pure wool hand knitted socks in any of the berry shades. I'm not really into stripes but a variegated yarn would be nice. Shoe size is US 9

Screen/gocco printed cards
See my wists for ideas. I love botanical prints - modern or vintage inspired.

Crocheted cotton market/shopping bag
One that folds up into its own pocket. See my colour preferences above and my wists for examples

Hi, my name is Marie and I live in Florida (blah).  I’m not big on sunny days unless there’s a motorcycle or jet ski involved in the picture   ::)  I prefer the mountains & lake to beaches any day, but I’m stuck here for a bit.  Luckily, I am very happily married to my best friend and we have two hairy children, Pixie, a cocker-chow and Remington, a lab-retriever.  We own a small house in a small town, but dream of moving to “the sticks” one day.

My favorite things to do are read, sew, surf craftster, ride bitch on the motorcycle and catering to my husband & friends (“beer me bitch” is a term of endearment ‘round these parts, lol), and as of this past weekend quadding!!!!   ;D

Loves: tattoos, argyle, plaid, guns, the paranormal, lightening storms, coffee/tea/lattes, Celtic anything, rustic/cabin décor, my husband’s red facial hair, MMA (especially Chuck Liddell, /drools), brownies, Nintendo, beer, Chuck Taylors, Braveheart, smutty romance novels, cooking & baking.

Hello! My name is Martha and I’m a 19 college student and I currently live in NY. I love crafting but ever since I started college I don’t have as much time to craft as I would like to. Anywhoo, I knit, sew, scrapbook and I’m a beginner at crocheting. My favorite colors are green and pink and I also like turquoise. I like unique, vintage stuff. I’m a pre-med/ environmental bio major so I absolutely love anything nature related…trees, flowers, birds (especially owls) and turtles! I absolutely love turtles! I have no allergies so I have no problem with any food/ scented stuff I get…

*Anything House related (the medical show on TV)- I’m a HUGE fan
*Bags/totes/purses are always welcome
*Anything nature related
*Handmade soaps…preferably something with honey and oatmeal…no strong scents. Note: I have sensitive skin, so all-natural ingredients are better for me.
*Passport cover
*Case for my camera

SUPPLIES:
*Crochet hooks- larger sizes & metal ones would be preferred
*Flowery or Amy Butler (or similar style) fabrics

I claim Kristen81 for linen items!

This is my 2nd claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

I'm an ABD grad student in art history, 32, living in North Carolina.  I knit, sew, and am new to embroidery.  My aesthetic is very minimal--I try to surround myself with simple, beautiful, natural things.  William Morris said it best:  “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”  I love natural colors and materials, especially organic and sustainable, and various shades of grey, blue, green, and brown (and lovely clear red). 

Here's my wishlist.  Thank you!

I claim OneRedBoot for a shawl pin & handspun yarn

This is my first claim this round, list in a minute

I'm in Massachusetts US, I do mostly knit, but I also crochet, spin, and used to cross-stitch, embroider and a little bit of tatting. I like the cooler colors (blues, purples, greens) but a little oomph of the red/orange/yellows doesn't hurt either.

lounge-y shorts/pants (~40" waist)

slightly bigger than credit-card-size wristlet with outside pocket for ID badge,  this idea (http://www.verabradley.com/Site/Store/ProductDetail.aspx?dept=8&sku=246%3A10&)

crochet-hook book-style zip-close holder for tall hooks. I have some that are longer than usual so they're are too tall to fit in the other holders I've got. (I think they're about 7" / 18cm long, but I can let you know for sure)

floral  fabric covered tacks  (http://www.designspongeonline.com/2008/02/diy-project-fabric-covered-thumbtacks.html) T

cloth panty liners

A pretty, but not really lacy, ladies crocheted/knit/sewn/beadedwire/etc kippah in white or black

Supplies

Flex  (http://elann.com/productdisp.asp?NAME=Clover+Bamboo+Flex+Knitting+Needles&Cat=&ProductType=3&Count=23) knitting needles (they look like circulars that have been cut in half)

anything to help me improve wire-wrapping beading kind of techniques. I'm self-taught and the teacher doesn't always know what's going on :D

pretty tatting shuttles (shorter than 3"/7.5cm)

Casein (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5001606&section_id=5028479) Knitting needles

I will claim ThreadOrYarn for stained glass stitch markers, fabric covered tacks and a small 6 X6 tote(s).

** Swapper Virgin!**
This is my very first swap!  Be gentle with me...!  If I do anything wrong or weird, correct me, would ya?  My biggest pet peeve is looking stoo-pid. =o)
 
Greetings and Salutations from rural, central Minnesota.  I am a 41 year wife and mother of one (grown up and gone).  I work full time as a headhunter/recruiter...(in this economy and job market I find myself sitting in a very quiet office with not a lot to do these days...*sigh*...lots of people looking, just not a lot of places to put them).
 
I love to craft and create.  I'm seriously into sewing, quilting, stained glass (!!), mosaics, crocheting, learning to work with beading and painting.  I've recently tried my hand at throwing pottery at a friend's place and loved it.  I've tried to learn how to knit....sadly, I'm just not the knitting kind. But! I can work a Knifty Knitter knitting loom a little bit!  I like to try new things and am completely and utterly inspired by the amazing talent here on Craftster.
 
I craft and create because I don't want what everyone else out there already has.  If it's popular and everyone has one...I don't want it.  If it's popular and everyone watches it on TV....I don't care to see it.  If it's popular and everyone likes it...I don't like it.  I am unique.  I like to have unique stuff.
 
I have no allergies or extreme dislikes.  I have one fat cat, one old beagle and one scruffy mutt.  In addition to that we live on a hobby farm with chickens, show pigeons and several beehives.
 
I love the Beatles.  Ringo is my guy. My favorite songs are "Here Comes the Sun" and "Good Day Sunshine."
 
I am heavily involved in Community Theatre. On stage, behind stage and in the audience.  This summer's production?  "Chicago"!  Squeee!  Seriously....SQUUEEE!
 
My favorite colors are limey-pistachio green (but not neon green) and yellow. And girly pink. And jet black. And purple...  I guess I love all colors. Well....except for puce.  The name of it just turns me right off. 
 
We just redecorated our kitchen this winter and it's a denim blue with sky blue cabinets with light pistachio green accents.  Would love to see some wall art to hang in there. Something fun and kitchy.
 
We like to ride bike: both motorcycle (Harley) and the pedal kind. We go camping in the summer but we don't rough it, we've got a 23 foot travel trailer.  I like to garden but mostly with flowers.
 
Oh. One more thing.  Quilters!  I work in the town where Thimbleberries is headquartered!  I've never met Lynnette Jensen....but they've got one fine quilt shop here. Real fine.

Crafts:
Anything made from beeswax: lip balm, creams, whatever...
Handmade soaps.....any girly scent works for me.
Poly clay crafts...beaded jewlery, pendants, earrings (pierced) figures...feel free to surprise and inspire me!
Kitchen Wall Art...colors of my kitchen are denim blue, sky blue with pisachio green accents.  All metal finishes are silver. Kitchy and fun but not bizarre.
Reusable shopping bags: Fun and funky colors...something that will make the lady (or man) at the checkout go "oohhh, cool bag!"
Watercolor paintings, flowers are best.
Any (I mean ANY) fused glass pieces....I don't have my own kiln....maybe someday I'll have one.
Lampworked beads
 
Crafty Supplies:
Jewelry making stuff: glass beads, silver wire, wire nippers.
Stained Glass: Feel free to destash on me. Big pieces/little pieces...I love stained glass!
Scalloped copper foil tape 5/16 inch.
Glass Frit: Any color
Fat quarters or Charm Packs: Batik fabrics and flannels, I keep hearing about this "Amy Butler" fabric....never seen it or had some (hint-hint)....
Roving and instructions or help on how to needle felt.
Vintage fabric:  50's or 60's.
Poly clay tools:  acrylic roller and flat cutter
 
Extras:
Treats or eats from your region...What is your corner of the world known for?  (I'm from rural MN...that means wild rice, Old Dutch Potato Chips, lefse.)
Homemade jelly or jam
Recipes from your "Favorites" file.
Salt and Pepper shakers (I collect sets that makes me smile when I look at them, funny or humorous. My favorite Salt and Pepper set?  A set of false teeth.)
 
And it looks to me like I should start a wist.  I don't have one of those yet. That would helpful, wouldn't it? =o)
 
Any questions?  I'd be happy to clarify anything. 
Thanks in advance for choosing me!
 
Wheee...this is gonna be a hoot, ain't it?
DoodleLou

About Me

Hello! My name is Liana and I am 22 years old. I am currently studying at the University of Southern California for my master's in social work.

I claim riario for *hopefully* cloth diapers, if not something else fantastic for the baby!!   ;D

Claim #3 this round (3, 0, 0)

I am Nicole, in my late 20s, full time SAHM to my 15 month old daughter, and part time childcare worker.  I live in the Denver, CO area.  Prior to my SAHM-ing, I was an elementary music teacher, so I love all things musical!  Crafts I like to do include scrapbooking, knitting, and sewing; although I do dabble in lots of different things.  I love earthy colors, especially browns, greens, grays, and blues.   I dislike neons, licensed cartoon caracters (think Dora, Disney, etc.), and skulls.

Crafts:

** Knitted or crocheted longies, shorties, or skirty for my munchkin – PM me for exact measurements, but she’s pretty much a medium
Yummy handspun yarn goodness
Jewelry ala phoenixfiredesigns  I wear silver toned jewelry; necklaces and earrings - but not too dangley or large on the earrings, as I have a toddler who is fascinated with shiny things. 
Sewing machine cover in a fun fabric thanks claire313!!
Skirt like this one  http://wists.com/6a3f325dcfa1a05b96d4c8f2e1d66085?q=skirt&offset=0 – PM me for sizing info
** Vintage-y decorated tshirts, size L (I like the longer styles of tshirts) Examples on my wists
Knit socks love love love!  Especially with cute patterns in the stitching!
Re-usable sandwich wraps
Everyday cloth napkins – a set of 6 would be great, my kitchen is sage green, kind of a French country feel   thanks freestyle!  I could use one more set, maybe chocolate brown or tan?
Placemats maybe to match my napkins?  Or not, just placemats to match my kitchen would be great!
Hooded scarf - knitted, this pattern http://wists.com/musicalmama/a9c6576c627a40e4a0f6347b0d987717?offset=0
Monster hat for my munchkin
Vintage inspired apron, examples on my wists
Penguin, owl, cat, or octopus amigurumi or stuffy, or any kind, really thanks antarcticraft!  You can never have too many stuffies!
Embroidered pillowcases for the master bedroom, quilt colors are either dark green, burgundy and pink, or dark green, sage green, and a medium country blue – depending on which quilt I’m using.  I’m so lucky – I have two quilters in my family!  I can get you a photo of the quilts if you need it.
Girl Poppet – with fair skin (normal skin color) and some wild crazy hair color
Small to medium-sized pincushion – I have a monster huge octopus one that I LOVE, but it is not very mobile.  I would love one that could go with me all over.  Maybe a wrist pincushion!
Handmade pottery – a tea pot or cup/saucer set would be really great! 
Squashed cat coasters from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=157293.0
I like the idea of a ravelry surprise!  My favorites on ravelry are here: http://www.ravelry.com/people/musicalmama/favorites/patterns
A wists –y surprise  My wists:  http://www.wists.com/musicalmama

Supplies:

**Snap pliers for resin/plastic snaps
Resin/plastic snaps (mostly white, but other colors are good)
Vintage children’s book illustrations (fairy tale stories) – I’m decoupaging an end table for the munchkin’s room.  I don’t need the original illustrations, a good color copy will work just fine!
Cute fabric to make little girl’s clothing – at least a yard
Vintage clothing patterns for toddler girl
Waste canvas for cross-stitch
Penguin fabric, any fun patterned fabric
Men’s hoodie, size medium, without a zipper – plain black (I can’t find this anywhere!)
Embroidery stitch book/pattern book - I’m trying to get back into this.
Handspun yarn goodness
Natural fiber yarn (wool, alpaca, cotton, bamboo, etc)
Needle felting kit – I would love to learn this!

Spinning starter kit

Post by: AsphaltQueen on April 15, 2009 01:54:42 PM
I claim musiclady for a wisty surprise and some alpaca yarn.


This is my 4th claim (3 sent, 3 received) and I am in the U.S. Here's a mini-bio with more info than you'll ever want.

I'm 33 and live in the lovely state of Michigan with my wonderful husband and our beagle, Snort. Snort's idea of the good life is eating, sleeping and eating her own poo. She's my fur-baby, and while we don't treat her like a human child, she is a member of our family.

I own an asphalt company along with my Dad and work about 70-80 hours a week in the summer, so I basically have no life, including crafting, from May through the end of October.

I'm a flittering crafter, I like to try everything once and the things I really enjoy, I keep up with. My current favorites are making jewelry, knitting and papercrafts, though I'm trying to get back into watercolors and really need to start using my pottery wheel again.

I like sarcastic wit and jokes that make you think, and I seem to be experiencing a renewed love for the '80s. Favorite tv show of all time is The Office and favorite movies are Real Genius (with a very young Val Kilmer) and the original Willy Wonka (c'mon, a movie all about candy!) Favorite colors are ocean-y colors (greens & blues & browns) and jewel tones (ruby, emerald, sapphire, etc.). I’m also digging the black/white/grey combos lately.

I love anything to do with nature and waterfalls are my favorite places to check out. And my favorite food in the whole world is donuts. Best flavor explosion - a fresh, hot, plain cake donut, straight from the oven with a glass of apple cider. I dislike mean people, people who are stupid by choice, soy sauce, political campaigns, and having religion preached to me without an invitation.

Please feel free to look over my wists as I like everything on there, it’s updated, and wisty surprises are fun, fun, fun!!! Thank you so, so much to anyone who chooses me!

CRAFTED ITEMS

KNIT/CROCHET/YARN/NEEDLEWORK
  • knit socks – ankle or regular is fine (women’s size 8.5 or 9) - thanks, onr!
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt hippopotamus - thanks, bsonlytoots!
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt cookie monster (actually, any of the old-school sesame street characters would be great and I’ve even got free patterns listed on my wist!)
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt pelican
  • art yarn
  • Knit shrug/wrap - on the off-chance that someone is just itchin’ to do one, I’ve got a few listed on my wist
  • handknit squares for a Craftster blanket – I have to double-check the sizes I’ve already gotten, but I think they were 4” square. Only request is that the yarn you use is machine washable.
  • Felted beads – pretty flexible on colors and sizes, I’d like to have a stash of these for art projects.
  • Funny, sarcastic cross stitches or embroideries (I can frame 'em) - I've got a couple on my wist, but feel free to just do something you think I'd like.
  • Embroidered pillowcases- For our master bedroom, colors are blues and greens. Some type of sea animals or theme would be awesome.

SEWN
  • NEW - throw pillow cover - inspired by this, but any plant/tree/bird fabric is cool - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14541713 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14541713)
  • NEW - set of bookends - like these - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23258284 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23258284)
  • some type of overnight bag that has a number of pockets to hold misc. toiletries and stuff (I’ve seen some Amy Butler ones, like the weekender bag, that are cute, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be that involved or fancy unless you feel like it – basic tote with interior pockets is fine by me. Oh, and it doesn't have to be fancy fabric, either.)
  • Placemats (set of 2, 4 or 6) - though I’m loving the log cabin look, anything would be sweet. My kitchen colors are sage green and burgundy
  • Napkins - (matching or coordinating sets of 2, 4 or 6) – kitchen colors are sage green and burgundy - thanks, frosty772!
  • Pair of Strawberry Shortcake, Super Mario, Smurfs or PacMan long pajama pants or pajama shorts (any type of fabric is fine, PM for measurements but I wear a Nick and Nora’s size large if that helps)
  • Jacket/Sweater/Sweatshirt for Snort – I'd prefer something that has a neck band and belly wrap, rather than something I have to put her legs through. I can get you whatever measurements you need for this, but just for reference she's a 40lb beagle.


ART/PAPERCRAFTS
  • your artwork, whatever medium you like – you can check my wist for inspiration (you’ll see I love a lot of whimsical pieces), but I’ll love anything that isn’t political, religious or deal with death. And I do have ample counter top display room, so it doesn't have to be a wall hanging piece of artwork.
  • inchies or ACEOs
  • Fun To Do lists - I love making To Do lists and would love sarcastic, funny, witty or pretty To Do List pads. (Or you can just paper punch a hole in them and tie them with a pretty ribbon.) Very flexible on this one, just make something you think I would like. And I'd prefer smaller to larger - probably nothing larger than half of an 8.5x11 sheet of paper.

SILKSCREEN/IRON-ONS/ETC.
  • silkscreened t-shirt with the phrase    neat-o mosquito (feel free to add a cool image if you have one) – women’s L or XL, 40” bust. I'm fine with the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom t-shirts that Walmart sells for about $4.50 in the men's section - size Large, please. - thanks, bsonlytoots!
  • t-shirt like this one that errka made for me last year that I have worn and washed so much the graphic is falling apart!  – roughly a women’s large or XL, 40” bust. I'm fine with the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom t-shirts that Walmart sells for about $4.50 in the men's section - size Large, please.   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155224.msg1545936#msg1545936 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155224.msg1545936#msg1545936)

  • NEW - An embroidered brooch - I really like this one - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21301783 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21301783)
  • NEW - Upcycled glass bottle earrings - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10066232 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10066232)

  • NEW - a necklace inspired by this - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20536454 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20536454)
  • NEW - a swarovski ring inspired by this one, greens, blues, blacks, greys are all good - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20724141 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20724141)
  • A fused glass pendant – I’ve got examples on my wists of some I like
  • Pelican pendant – sculpy, glass, collaged, resin, whatever!
  • Chunky necklaces or rings - in a style you think I might like, I've got some wisted for inspiration
  • Jewelry made with sea glass - inspiration on my wist, but I'm flexible
  • Any wisty-inspired jewelry - I've got lots on there


MISCELLANEOUS
  • pretty suncatchers
  • NEW - a pet egg - like this beagle one - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20354767 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20354767)
  • Anything on the theme of “1950s Happy Homemaker with a twist” (tongue-in-cheek kind of things) – notepad, pendant, artwork, tote, t-shirt, whatever!
  • ANYTHING ON MY WISTS – I’m constantly adding new items and there's lots, lots, lots of small/medium items on there!


CRAFTY-SUPPLY ITEMS
I like supplies, but am really trying to cut down on my stash, so please don't send me a supplies only package unless it's a single item that's medium sized all on its own. Thank you!
  • “Weird” or unique rubber or acrylic stamps. Zetti-type images, dancing animals, retro images, basically stuff you can’t find at JoAnn’s (I’ve got a few samples on my wists). Used is perfectly fine!
  • Random/unique/antique ephermera – anything you think I might find amusing, intriguing, weird or otherwise useful.
  • Vintage/old keys – The older and rustier, the better. Skeleton keys are awesome, but anything that looks old is terrific.
  • Rusty metal stuff – Anything that I can use for altered art stuff, usually no bigger than a dollar bill or so.

EXTRAS
  • Wade figurines
  • Broken watches
  • Broken bits of rhinestone jewelry

Im going to claim asphalt queen for a set of napkins!!  Perhaps more after I look at her list a bit more!!

This is my first claim this round.
None sent
None received

Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 36 and im a stay at home mom to three boys in Northern California. I just moved here from OH and love it!!  I like to sew, quilt.  I am starting to get into embroidery and can crochet a little bit.  Im very much into girly type stuff and love anything regency -titanic era. I also love 30s-40s things as well.  I am allergic to nickel.
 
Here are my wishes
First off any surprise off my wist list is great!!

Crafted Items~~

KNITTED AND CROCHETED

I love this shawl and I am willing to wait longer if anyone will make it for me. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CivilWarShawlKAL/  Im not picky about color.  Would be just happy to even have one.

I would love some soft wool socks!!
Also a nice pair of mittens too!!
Chocolate brown snood in a 40s style
Knitted or crocheted beret hat in a dark color with a nice soft yarn


SEWN

**Civil War Era Cape called a Mathilde Mantilla (Think of a Civil War era Poncho.  This is basically what it is)  Here is a link to the pattern http://www.uvm.edu/%7Ehag/godey/images/s5902170.jpg  and here is an example of what it looks like http://www.thegracefullady.com/civilwargowns/ready-mades_silkmantle.htm Measurements will be provided.  Wool blend or Corduroy would be great. Hood is decorative and is not functional. It only uses around 3 yards.  I would also prefer it lined for warmth. It would be great if I could retain the pattern as well for future projects.  (I can sew I just cant figure out how to make it <frown>) without a pre-drafted pattern.  OR If someone with any drafting skills wouldn’t mind drafting a pattern to my size I could play around with it and make my own (If I have a pattern to work with)

Handmade lunch bags!!  I looking for one for each of my boys and hubby.  (Claim for one at a time is fine of course) I think i have examples on my wist!! My hubby uses a plastic shopping bag for his lunch so I would love one made of fabric but perhaps a bit decked out for lunch purposes (Ideas such as pockets, insulated, utensil roll perhaps???????? in asian fabric for a man. Kanjis perhaps)

My husband collects law enforcement patches.  I would love to get a bunch for him for him.  If you live near a prison, jail or other LE facility perhaps they would let you have one???  He gets his this way by asking and they are usually happy to give him one.  My husband loves asian things as well as LE related (he is a correctional officer) and anything relating to the park service (Smokey the Bear gets double marks lol!!). He is a fan of Bruce Lee and any DVD (he has VHS) movies or any craft with him inspired would be wonderful!!  Or perhaps a stenciled t-shirt of Bruce Lee.  He would be thrilled to recieve something just for him (It also continues him to encourage me to swap.  Ya know totally his idea)

Also I would love to be able to get him a hooded jacket with a nin symbol on it!! (Will send link to a pic if needed)

Last but not least total complete surprises are welcome!!  If you are good at something and have something you love making.  Go right ahead.  I will say that my tastes are victorian so if you can incorporate that even more perfect!!

I claim frosty 772 for buttons and scrapbooking supplies. This is my second claim - none sent.

ABOUT ME

I live in Australia but I have only asked for lightwieght items - so hopefully I won't stall the swap.  ;)

I love creating things and am currently exploring papercrafts.

I prefer natural fibres and fabrics to synthetic ones (for environmental and tactile reasons). I adore vintage florals (pre 1970), vintage brocade/damask. baroque/rococo style prints, cotton velvet, botanical prints and fabrics with silhouettes of leaves or branches/trees like Joel Dewberry's ones. I'm not a fan of stripes, spots, plaids/checks, skulls, country/cutesy, or disney/anime stuff.

I love berry shades, dark reds, muted pinks & purples, leaf green, and chocolate brown.  No neons or black please, and I'm not too keen on yellow, orange, or navy.
Please see my profile and wists for more info.

CRAFTED ITEMS

NEWPocket tissue holder
I would love a holder/cover for the pack of pocket tissues I carry around in m purse. Please see my fabric and colour preferences above and check my wist for ideas.

Crocheted cotton purse
I would love a small crocheted purse made from cotton yarn in dark reds, purples and  berry shades with a long shoulder strap & flap - big enough to hold my wallet, keys, & phone when I go on walks around the neighbourhood. One made from granny squares would be nice. Teaching Jonah made me a beautiful pastel one in the last round which I am using in the summer months and I would love one for winter as well.

Crocheted cotton drink bottle holders Thanks Miss_Kassandra
I would love crocheted cotton drink bottle holders with a carrying strap for my children's water bottles. Both bottles are 750mls in size. My daughter likes reds, pinks and oranges and my son likes blues and greens. (No synthetic yarns please).


Drawstring bags
I would some cotton drawstring bags to carry my shoes and underwear when I go on vacation. See my colour and fabric preferences above.

Crocheted Cotton Flowers
I'm collecting crocheted flowers made with cotton yarn in all shades of pink and berry shades to match the beautiful crocheted purse that I received in a previous round.

Knitted Woollen Socks
I would love a pair of pure wool hand knitted socks in any of the berry shades. I'm not really into stripes but a variegated yarn would be nice. Shoe size is US 9

Screen/gocco printed cards
See my wists for ideas. I love botanical prints - modern or vintage inspired.

Crocheted cotton market/shopping bag
One that folds up into its own pocket. See my colour preferences above and my wists for examples

Earrings/rings/brooches made with vintage floral cabs
See my colour preferences above and my wists for examples. Please use sterling silver earring wires as my ears are allergic to nickel.

I claim Velvet Rose for a crocheted something from her wists

This is my 2nd claim, none sent. list in a minute

I'm in Massachusetts US, I do mostly knit, but I also crochet, spin, and used to cross-stitch, embroider and a little bit of tatting. I like the cooler colors (blues, purples, greens) but a little oomph of the red/orange/yellows doesn't hurt either. Nothing holiday themed please - I like being able to use my things all the time, not just a few weeks a year 

My list, in no particular order (links are examples, not requirements  :D )

slightly bigger than credit-card-size wristlet with outside pocket for ID badge,  this idea (http://www.verabradley.com/Site/Store/ProductDetail.aspx?dept=8&sku=246%3A10&)

crochet-hook book-style zip-close holder for tall hooks. I have some that are longer than usual so they're are too tall to fit in the other holders I've got. (I think they're about 7" / 18cm long, but I can let you know for sure)

floral  fabric covered tacks  (http://www.designspongeonline.com/2008/02/diy-project-fabric-covered-thumbtacks.html)

Post by: AsphaltQueen on April 17, 2009 01:37:44 PM
    I claim claire313 for a wisty steampunk seahorse pin and some other goodies.


    This is my 5th claim (3 sent, 3 received) and I am in the U.S. Here's a mini-bio with more info than you'll ever want.

    I'm 33 and live in the lovely state of Michigan with my wonderful husband and our beagle, Snort. Snort's idea of the good life is eating, sleeping and eating her own poo. She's my fur-baby, and while we don't treat her like a human child, she is a member of our family.

    I own an asphalt company along with my Dad and work about 70-80 hours a week in the summer, so I basically have no life, including crafting, from May through the end of October.

    I'm a flittering crafter, I like to try everything once and the things I really enjoy, I keep up with. My current favorites are making jewelry, knitting and papercrafts, though I'm trying to get back into watercolors and really need to start using my pottery wheel again.

    I like sarcastic wit and jokes that make you think, and I seem to be experiencing a renewed love for the '80s. Favorite tv show of all time is The Office and favorite movies are Real Genius (with a very young Val Kilmer) and the original Willy Wonka (c'mon, a movie all about candy!) Favorite colors are ocean-y colors (greens & blues & browns) and jewel tones (ruby, emerald, sapphire, etc.). I’m also digging the black/white/grey combos lately.

    I love anything to do with nature and waterfalls are my favorite places to check out. And my favorite food in the whole world is donuts. Best flavor explosion - a fresh, hot, plain cake donut, straight from the oven with a glass of apple cider. I dislike mean people, people who are stupid by choice, soy sauce, political campaigns, and having religion preached to me without an invitation.

    Please feel free to look over my wists as I like everything on there, it’s updated, and wisty surprises are fun, fun, fun!!! Thank you so, so much to anyone who chooses me!

CRAFTED ITEMS

KNIT/CROCHET/YARN/NEEDLEWORK
  • NEW - felted house(s) like these (I'd love to get a set eventually) - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23657895 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23657895)
  • knit socks – ankle or regular is fine (women’s size 8.5 or 9) - thanks, onr!
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt hippopotamus - thanks, bsonlytoots!
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt cookie monster (actually, any of the old-school sesame street characters would be great and I’ve even got free patterns listed on my wist!)
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt pelican
  • art yarn
  • Knit shrug/wrap - on the off-chance that someone is just itchin’ to do one, I’ve got a few listed on my wist. I especially love this one, especially if the yarn is a little soft - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22967042 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22967042)
  • handknit squares for a Craftster blanket – I have to double-check the sizes I’ve already gotten, but I think they were 4” square. Only request is that the yarn you use is machine washable.
  • Felted beads – pretty flexible on colors and sizes, I’d like to have a stash of these for art projects.
  • Funny, sarcastic cross stitches or embroideries (I can frame 'em) - I've got a couple on my wist, but feel free to just do something you think I'd like.
  • Embroidered pillowcases- For our master bedroom, colors are blues and greens. Some type of sea animals or theme would be awesome.

SEWN
  • NEW - throw pillow cover - inspired by this, but any plant/tree/bird fabric is cool - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14541713 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14541713)
  • NEW - set of bookends - like these - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23258284 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23258284)
  • some type of overnight bag that has a number of pockets to hold misc. toiletries and stuff (I’ve seen some Amy Butler ones, like the weekender bag, that are cute, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be that involved or fancy unless you feel like it – basic tote with interior pockets is fine by me. Oh, and it doesn't have to be fancy fabric, either.)
  • Placemats (set of 2, 4 or 6) - though I’m loving the log cabin look, anything would be sweet. My kitchen colors are sage green and burgundy
  • Napkins - (matching or coordinating sets of 2, 4 or 6) – kitchen colors are sage green and burgundy - thanks, frosty772!
  • Pair of Strawberry Shortcake, Super Mario, Smurfs or PacMan long pajama pants or pajama shorts (any type of fabric is fine, PM for measurements but I wear a Nick and Nora’s size large if that helps)
  • Jacket/Sweater/Sweatshirt for Snort – I'd prefer something that has a neck band and belly wrap, rather than something I have to put her legs through. I can get you whatever measurements you need for this, but just for reference she's a 40lb beagle.


ART/PAPERCRAFTS
  • NEW - an altered pet photo inspired by these - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22438548 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22438548)
  • your artwork, whatever medium you like – you can check my wist for inspiration (you’ll see I love a lot of whimsical pieces), but I’ll love anything that isn’t political, religious or deal with death. And I do have ample counter top display room, so it doesn't have to be a wall hanging piece of artwork.
  • inchies or ACEOs
  • Fun To Do lists - I love making To Do lists and would love sarcastic, funny, witty or pretty To Do List pads. (Or you can just paper punch a hole in them and tie them with a pretty ribbon.) Very flexible on this one, just make something you think I would like. And I'd prefer smaller to larger - probably nothing larger than half of an 8.5x11 sheet of paper.

SILKSCREEN/IRON-ONS/ETC.
  • silkscreened t-shirt with the phrase    neat-o mosquito (feel free to add a cool image if you have one) – women’s L or XL, 40” bust. I'm fine with the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom t-shirts that Walmart sells for about $4.50 in the men's section - size Large, please. - thanks, bsonlytoots!
  • t-shirt like this one that errka made for me last year that I have worn and washed so much the graphic is falling apart!  – roughly a women’s large or XL, 40” bust. I'm fine with the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom t-shirts that Walmart sells for about $4.50 in the men's section - size Large, please.   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155224.msg1545936#msg1545936 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155224.msg1545936#msg1545936)


JEWELRY/ACCESSORIES
  • NEW - A pendant with poppies - Here's an example of one I like, but I'm very flexible - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22670829 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22670829)

I claim AsphaltQueen for an embroidered brooch and some other wisty/etsy-favorite inspired stuff (because she recently spoiled me, and I need to spoil her back!)

This is my fourth claim this round (1, 1, 2)

Hi!  I’m addicted to knitting, though I love many other crafts as well!  A Michigan (USA) native, I am enamored of watery landscapes and northern hardwood forests.  My deepest wish is to live on a lake or river.  I love snow and wintery landscapes, cool colors and corny humor.  I love superheroes and mourn the fact that I’m fat and 50 – superhero material beyond repair.  ☺  I wist.   

Enough about me: 

Crafted Items

fabric covered tacks

poly clay decorated tacks

more silly face magnets (summertimerolls made me these: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=230187.msg2504439#msg2504439)  The kids at school love them like crazy!!!  It's a sure-fire way to help a child calm down:  "Why don't you take a look at my 'face of the day magnets' and show me your favorite?"

your rendering of my Jack Russell terrier in any medium (pencil, paint, embroidery, appliqué, etc.)

pottery, especially small bowls or mugs

moc-a-socs like these: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=290914.200

needle box https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155698.msg1616647#msg1616647

“posters” for my office featuring anti-bullying messages in any medium (pencil, paint, embroidery, etc.) Examples:  “Pick flowers, not fights!”, “ Horseplay hurts!  Please act human (fake it if you have to)”.  See this website for other ideas: http://catalog.instructionalimages.com/product_info.php?products_id=37{1}1 

Poetry journal with your favorite (or original) works included

Notecards – I love handcrafted notecards and use them for everything from swapping to thank you’s!  If you have sent me notecards in the past, I am either using them and loving them, or they are all gone!
  I'm putting cards on hold for awhile!  I have lots at the moment!  Thanks everyone and PFD!

Handspun yarn, any colors, any amount - I love handspun yarn!

Tawashi - I like this one, in knit or crochet: http://www.craftstylish.com/item/43848/how-to-crochet-a-tawashi

Embroidered pillow cases in quiet colors for the master bedroom which is blue, guest bedroom is grass green (dh is daring with color) -- the bedspread in there is a quilt made with "eyeballs in the jungle" fabric

Anything from my wist (unless it's marked as "received")!  http://www.wists.com/addicted2knitting



Supplies

learn to spin kit with drop spindle and roving

10 inch Harmony straight knitting needles, any size 4 -11 http://www.knitpicks.com/Straight+Harmony+Knitting+Needles_NDSTNHarmonyneedles.html

Fun badges/pins

Thanks for choosing me!

Easily done! Claiming dip_n_dot for a Tree of Life pendant.

Claim number 3 of 3 / 1 sent / 1 received

UPDATED WITH NEW ITEMS AND MORE IDEAS!

About Me
Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. My favorite colors are jewel tones like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber. I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.) My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy. I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together. My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes. I love to read, I enjoy photography and I love all things Disney!

ALLERGIES
I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.

Crafts
*big wish -- A purse in this kind of style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/61667fb21176b1747a33ba44f03a0028?offset=0). I LOVE, LOVE LOVE this bag. The mix of the cord and the cable...? LOVE. (Could use an existing sweater for the knit part as well if you don't knit. I think that'd work just fine as well.)

*big wish* -- A robe like this one (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/a3a42670262dc240c5598e8e52c486a4?offset=0). It's just so lovely and I desperately need a robe. (3/4 length or long-sleeves, and mid-length overall. Not too short, not too long. I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*big wish* -- A tote like this one (http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/products/item/Miranda_Day_Bag/221/p2c50). I love and covet everything about it from the colors, fabric to the pattern.

*big wish* -- This scarf in these exact colors (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=144573.msg1422950#msg1422950). I think this is one of the most perfect things ever. I don't really need scarves as a rule because I live in Florida, but I'd find reasons to wear one like this!

*big wish* -- A Slanket! (http://www.theslanket.com/) I almost bought a "snuggie" but the fabric was icky. (It was like thin felt.) I want soft, awesome microfiber fleece stuff, you know? Something long enough to cover my toes as well. I'm forever using a blanket on the couch so this would come in hand GREATLY.

*big wish* -- An Autumn Leaf Barrette (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18272578). I miss autumn since we don't get leaves changing colors here in Florida.

*big wish* -- A migraine therapy kit like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20774277). I have had migraines for more than 15 years and this kind of thing DOES help.

 -- A leaf embroidered wallet like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vt_related_1&listing_id=23776357).

 -- Anything with a phoenix on it. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/phoenix) as inspiration.

 -- A purse like the first one here (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=298123.0) or like this (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/c5d2a19d60084c0229627371d990ae27?offset=0). I like the shape of both styles but it's really the look and colors of the fabric I'm really sold on. So something in similar colors/patterns would be great. Here are more I've wisted for inspiration. (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/purse)

 -- A leather tree ipod touch case like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vt_related_1&listing_id=23838665). It's SO pretty. (Brown leather please.)

 -- A cool fitted tee like these. I love the colors of these examples. I wear a US size 4 or typically a size small or medium. I pretty much live in baby doll/fitted tees.
 - http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b8278a3977c184f0454e3661b44d5913?offset=0
 - http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b43d1d191ced6ae1babfd7c537c6ecc1?offset=0
thanks bkrenning4! I'm leaving it up though for more potential claims. You can never have enough tees

 -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, glass mosaic item, etc. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself.

 -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft (no wool please because it itches me) I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. (HUGE bonus if it's argyle pattern. I don't know why but I love argyle.)

 -- Yoga pants! (examples: like this (http://www.barefootyoga.com/Detail.bok?no=697) or this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=275503.msg3115666;topicseen#msg3115666)) Roomy, 3/4 length or floor length (30" inseam) comfy, soft, cottony, not too tight on the waist. I lounge in them on my days off and I just love 'em. (US size 4 short length or I can send measurements if need be)
 
 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or a bowl or a tea mug or whatever. Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (A couple things I've wisted for inspiration.) (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/pottery)

 -- Something glass work like a vase or something. Blown or torch or whatever. A cool medium I don't know how to work with at all. This (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/glass/703db4106894a1496d86597b54fa03b1?offset=0) is really pretty for example.

 -- Things for my apartment in Teal Blue and Chocolate Brown. I love these colors together. And I'd love something in them for the home. A quilt or throw; art; kitchen accessories; pillows; curtains, etc., etc.

 -- Wrist warmers in this pattern. (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=98&d_id=8&lang=en) It's just utterly cool.

 -- Disney stuff. Be it characters (like Mickey, Figment, Belle, Mike & Sulley, etc.) or movies (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Monster's Inc., Lady and the Tramp, etc.) or the parks (I live near WDW but I've never been to Disneyland), or historical stuff (books on Walt or the making of the parks, etc.), or things I can use/take to/wear about any of the above, I LOVE DISNEY. So by all means, get creative! ;D

 -- Something (surprise me!) incorporating owls, penguins, bats, cats or red foxes. They're my favorite animals. Note: At this point, I probably have enough owl stuffies/amis so something besides that please.

 -- Fused glass or glass (microscope) slide pendants you think I'd like. (Here are some wisted inspiration items as examples.) (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/glass)

 -- A ribbon organizer (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/a6a4463a2bc31406c13fdf0cab4bc218?offset=0). Doesn't have to be this fabric. It's more the idea and the style of storage that I like here. Chocolate/Teal color combo would be great as would fun/cute fabric or prints (like owls or something.)

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns) or my wishlist (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/wishlist/397IKAEGOJ51E/), or the colors I like and see what you can make that you think I'd like.


Craft Supplies
 
-- Sewing stuff: Fabricgasm! I'm a new sewer so I covet fabrics now. And/or Sewing notions, tools or other helpful stuff a newbie sewer would need/covet/want/drool over. (Threads, buttons, snaps, etc.)

-- Complete Guide To Sewing Book in either this new edition (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0762104201) or this older edition (http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Guide-Sewing-Step-Step/dp/0888502478). I'm still a very novice sewer who could make use of a reference book like this. (Especially since no one I know locally sews!) thanks, tatatortuga!

 -- Doodle Stitching book like this (http://www.amazon.com/Doodle-Stitching-Fresh-Embroidery-Beginners/dp/1600590616/ref=wl_it_dp?ie=UTF8&coliid=I3U1KSGKRZ8M28&colid=397IKAEGOJ51E). I've never tried it but it seems like it might be fun.

 -- Starter resin kit/supplies (resin, molds, etc.)

 -- Starter rubber stamp carving stuff. (Maybe a kit or items like tools, the rubber to carve into, how-to/instructions, etc.)

 -- Gemstones and gemstone beads. In every shape, size and color. Donuts, cabs, chips - anything! I LOVE working with gemstones and I can never, ever have enough.

 -- Lampwork beads.

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such. Also, I love Swarovski crystal, unique clasps or toggles, and jewelry wire in 16 gauge and 24 gauge in any color. Gemstone chips are awesome as well since I make Tree of Life pendants with them.


Extras
-- Tea! Especially fruity ones.

 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.

 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)

 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)

 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! ;D

I'm claiming Misocci74 for CP soap!!

About Me:
Hey everyone!  My name is Mandy, i'm 32 years old and live in Michigan.  I'm a stay at home mother of a 2 year old little girl and am due with my second child in july.  I love to craft, read books, watch movies, garden.
We have 2 cats that live in our home with us.  When the children are a bit older I am hoping that we will be able to get a dog(hopefully a Great Dane). 
I have a wide variety of tastes and don't cling to a certain style.  My favorite color is green but I like almost every color of the rainbow just turned off by certain shades(for example I don't like forest green).

Dislikes:
I hate SMOKE and would rather not recieve anything from anyone who smokes in their home or lives with someone who smokes in the home!
I don't like glitter, sequins, feathers, ugly stuff, iron-ons!

I claim mcook72677 for clothes for her daughter.

This is my second claim, 1 sent, 0 received.

I am 31, currently live in Colorado and desperately want to move back home to DC. Or a tropical island in the west Pacific, that would work too. I work as a research meteorologist, and in my spare time I help with technical stuff for community theater (sets, costumes, props) and have a community garden plot.  My two cats generously allow me to live in their apartment in exchange for feeding and petting them as well as paying rent.

In terms of crafting, I sew about 95% of my clothes and do a little craft sewing on the side. Plus the theater costumes, lots of sewing there.  I also like to wet felt  - not the kind of felting that involves yarn, but the kind that involves loose fibers, soap, water, and violence. I enjoy dyeing both fibers and fabric, and dabble in batik, shibori, discharge, and other aspects of dyeing. There are a few other crafts that I participate in lightly, and I also love to cook and eat asian food, except for sushi.

I mostly wear autumn colors - reds, oranges, yellows, warm greens, and browns. Blues and purples are nice, but are not colors that I can wear, and I only wear black when working a theater show.  I do not like pink, pastels, or anything girly. My apartment is extremely neutral with beige carpet and white walls, and has gigantic windows. I like things that are reused, thrifted, and repurposed.


Crafts
wall art - any medium. I love themes of trees, cats, swamps and carnivorous plants, and nature stuff in general. Can't have too much art! - Thanks sheepBlue!

hand knit socks - women's size 9, thick and chunky fiber is great!

window decorations - stained glass or sheer/translucent paintings/art to hang in my massive windows

funky wall clock - reconned would be great!

pillowcases - both bed pillow type or throw pillow (12x12, 14x14, or 18x18 all good). My sofa is electric tangerine, and any kind of color is good for bed pillows.

black tees - printed, painted, or otherwise decorated, that I can wear when doing tech work for plays.  Theater techie or stage manager type jokes/quotes would be amusing (I can find some for you or you can check google or cafepress), or broader themes such as trees, squid/octopus/cuttlefish, Farscape. I'd also love one with "if animal trapped call 410-844-6286" a la the Wire.

sweatshirts, similar to the tees above but any color.

anything inspired by my wists

handkerchiefs - any fabric, any decoration, preferably functional

fabric grocery/shopping bags

crafty goodness that celebrates Maryland or DC - cards, photos, art, shirts, anything!


Craft Supplies

vintage lace or other interesting fabric trims
notions such as zippers, buttons, snaps, rivets, velcro, grommets
feltable fiber (non-superwash wool)
holey cashmere sweaters for fulling
a book on screen printing - I have a kit but haven't tried it yet
dover type stencil or design books
commercial socks suitable for sock animals
books or patterns for sewing soft toys
scraps of interesting wool or fuzzy yarns that I can incorporate into felt projects

Extras

UTZ brand potato chips - little snack size bags - salt and pepper, salt and vinegar, crab, bbq, carolina bbq, or grandma utz

I claim ehinders for a steampunk seahorse brooch and a steampunk octopus necklace.

This is my 6th claim (6 sent, 5 received) and I am in the U.S. Here's a mini-bio with more info than you'll ever want.

I'm 33 and live in the lovely state of Michigan with my wonderful husband and our beagle, Snort. Snort's idea of the good life is eating, sleeping and eating her own poo. She's my fur-baby, and while we don't treat her like a human child, she is a member of our family.

I own an asphalt company along with my Dad and work about 70-80 hours a week in the summer, so I basically have no life, including crafting, from May through the end of October.

I'm a flittering crafter, I like to try everything once and the things I really enjoy, I keep up with. My current favorites are making jewelry, knitting and papercrafts, though I'm trying to get back into watercolors and really need to start using my pottery wheel again.

I like sarcastic wit and jokes that make you think, and I seem to be experiencing a renewed love for the '80s. Favorite tv show of all time is The Office and favorite movies are Real Genius (with a very young Val Kilmer) and the original Willy Wonka (c'mon, a movie all about candy!) Favorite colors are ocean-y colors (greens & blues & browns) and jewel tones (ruby, emerald, sapphire, etc.). I’m also digging the black/white/grey combos lately.

I love anything to do with nature and waterfalls are my favorite places to check out. And my favorite food in the whole world is donuts. Best flavor explosion - a fresh, hot, plain cake donut, straight from the oven with a glass of apple cider. I dislike mean people, people who are stupid by choice, soy sauce, political campaigns, and having religion preached to me without an invitation.

Please feel free to look over my wists as I like everything on there, it’s updated, and wisty surprises are fun, fun, fun!!! Thank you so, so much to anyone who chooses me!

CRAFTED ITEMS

KNIT/CROCHET/YARN/NEEDLEWORK
  • NEW - felted house(s) like these (I'd love to get a set eventually) - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23657895 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23657895)
  • knit socks – ankle or regular is fine (women’s size 8.5 or 9) - thanks, onr!
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt hippopotamus - thanks, bsonlytoots!
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt cookie monster (actually, any of the old-school sesame street characters would be great and I’ve even got free patterns listed on my wist!)
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt pelican
  • art yarn
  • Knit shrug/wrap - on the off-chance that someone is just itchin’ to do one, I’ve got a few listed on my wist. I especially love this one, especially if the yarn is a little soft - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22967042 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22967042)
  • handknit squares for a Craftster blanket – I have to double-check the sizes I’ve already gotten, but I think they were 4” square. Only request is that the yarn you use is machine washable.
  • Felted beads – pretty flexible on colors and sizes, I’d like to have a stash of these for art projects.
  • Funny, sarcastic cross stitches or embroideries (I can frame 'em) - I've got a couple on my wist, but feel free to just do something you think I'd like.
  • Embroidered pillowcases- For our master bedroom, colors are blues and greens. Some type of sea animals or theme would be awesome.

SEWN
  • NEW - throw pillow cover - inspired by this, but any plant/tree/bird fabric is cool - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14541713 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14541713)
  • NEW - set of bookends - like these - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23258284 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23258284)
  • some type of overnight bag that has a number of pockets to hold misc. toiletries and stuff (I’ve seen some Amy Butler ones, like the weekender bag, that are cute, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be that involved or fancy unless you feel like it – basic tote with interior pockets is fine by me. Oh, and it doesn't have to be fancy fabric, either.)
  • Placemats (set of 2, 4 or 6) - though I’m loving the log cabin look, anything would be sweet. My kitchen colors are sage green and burgundy
  • Napkins - (matching or coordinating sets of 2, 4 or 6) – kitchen colors are sage green and burgundy - thanks, frosty772!
  • Pair of Strawberry Shortcake, Super Mario, Smurfs or PacMan long pajama pants or pajama shorts (any type of fabric is fine, PM for measurements but I wear a Nick and Nora’s size large if that helps)
  • Jacket/Sweater/Sweatshirt for Snort – I'd prefer something that has a neck band and belly wrap, rather than something I have to put her legs through. I can get you whatever measurements you need for this, but just for reference she's a 40lb beagle.


ART/PAPERCRAFTS
  • NEW - an altered pet photo inspired by these - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22438548 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22438548)
  • your artwork, whatever medium you like – you can check my wist for inspiration (you’ll see I love a lot of whimsical pieces), but I’ll love anything that isn’t political, religious or deal with death. And I do have ample counter top display room, so it doesn't have to be a wall hanging piece of artwork.
  • inchies or ACEOs
  • Fun To Do lists - I love making To Do lists and would love sarcastic, funny, witty or pretty To Do List pads. (Or you can just paper punch a hole in them and tie them with a pretty ribbon.) Very flexible on this one, just make something you think I would like. And I'd prefer smaller to larger - probably nothing larger than half of an 8.5x11 sheet of paper.

SILKSCREEN/IRON-ONS/ETC.
  • silkscreened t-shirt with the phrase    neat-o mosquito (feel free to add a cool image if you have one) – women’s L or XL, 40” bust. I'm fine with the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom t-shirts that Walmart sells for about $4.50 in the men's section - size Large, please. - thanks, bsonlytoots!
  • t-shirt like this one that errka made for me last year that I have worn and washed so much the graphic is falling apart!  – roughly a women’s large or XL, 40” bust. I'm fine with the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom t-shirts that Walmart sells for about $4.50 in the men's section - size Large, please.   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155224.msg1545936#msg1545936 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155224.msg1545936#msg1545936)


JEWELRY/ACCESSORIES
  • NEW - A pendant with poppies - Here's an example of one I like, but I'm very flexible - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22670829 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22670829)
  • NEW - An embroidered brooch - I really like this one - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21301783 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21301783)
  • NEW - Upcycled glass bottle earrings - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10066232 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10066232)

- - Thanks A2K, and I'll leave it up here in case someone wants to make me another one!
  • NEW - a necklace inspired by this - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20536454 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20536454)
  • NEW - a swarovski ring inspired by this one, greens, blues, blacks, greys are all good - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20724141 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20724141)
  • A fused glass pendant – I’ve got examples on my wists of some I like
  • Pelican pendant – sculpy, glass, collaged, resin, whatever!
  • Chunky necklaces or rings - in a style you think I might like, I've got some wisted for inspiration
  • Jewelry made with sea glass - inspiration on my wist, but I'm flexible
  • Any wisty-inspired jewelry - I've got lots on there


MISCELLANEOUS
  • pretty suncatchers
  • NEW - a pet egg - like this beagle one - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20354767 (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20354767)
  • Anything on the theme of “1950s Happy Homemaker with a twist” (tongue-in-cheek kind of things) – notepad, pendant, artwork, tote, t-shirt, whatever!
  • ANYTHING ON MY WISTS – I’m constantly adding new items and there's lots, lots, lots of small/medium items on there!
  • ANYTHING ON MY ETSY FAVORITES - There's lots of goodies on there that aren't on my wists.  http://www.etsy.com/favorite_listings_public.php?user_id=5048885 (http://www.etsy.com/favorite_listings_public.php?user_id=5048885)


CRAFTY-SUPPLY ITEMS
I like supplies, but am really trying to cut down on my stash, so please don't send me a supplies only package unless it's a single item that's medium sized all on its own. Thank you!
  • NEW - drilled sea glass pieces
  • “Weird” or unique rubber or acrylic stamps. Zetti-type images, dancing animals, retro images, basically stuff you can’t find at JoAnn’s (I’ve got a few samples on my wists). Used is perfectly fine!
  • Random/unique/antique ephermera – anything you think I might find amusing, intriguing, weird or otherwise useful.
  • Vintage/old keys – The older and rustier, the better. Skeleton keys are awesome, but anything that looks old is terrific.
  • Rusty metal stuff – Anything that I can use for altered art stuff, usually no bigger than a dollar bill or so.

EXTRAS
  • Wade figurines
  • Broken watches
  • Broken bits of rhinestone jewelry

I claim AsphaltQueen for some wisty goodness!

This is my first claim this round.

BRB with my list.


I am a 25 year old mom of 3 living in WA, United States (about an hour from Seattle). I am a recent college graduate (accounting). My family is very much a baseball family!

My favorite color is bright royal blue. I also really like chocolate brown and teal together. Any questions, just pm me! Oh yeah, my only aversions are smoke and anything inappropriate around kids or things my little ones will destroy (knick knack type things).

And now for the list (biggest wishes in bold):

Crafts

I claim Mlsocci74 for a travel chalk mat!

Claim 2/ 0 sent/ 0 rec

Here's my list again!
I am a 25 year old mom of 3 living in WA, United States (about an hour from Seattle). I am a recent college graduate (accounting). My family is very much a baseball family! I love to spoil my kids, as you can see much of my wists are kid things. I love butterflies and dragonflies, reading, photography, and various other random things. My favorite color is bright royal blue. I also really like chocolate brown and teal together. Any questions, just pm me! Oh yeah, my only aversions are smoke and anything inappropriate around kids or things my little ones will destroy (knick knack type things).

And now for the list (biggest wishes in bold):

Crafts

Hair barettes from my two girls. I love the Disney princess ribbon ones on my wist.

Personalized bow holders for my girls

I claim Rain for a niddy noddy and some hand-dyed roving.  Plus a few books from her Amazon wishlist if I can get hold of them in time!

This is my 3rd claim, 2 sent, 1 received.

I'm an ABD grad student in art history, 32, living in North Carolina.  I knit, sew, and am new to embroidery.  My aesthetic is very minimal--I try to surround myself with simple, beautiful, natural things.  William Morris said it best:  “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”  I love natural colors and materials, especially organic and sustainable, and various shades of grey, blue, green, and brown (and lovely clear red). 

Here's my wishlist.  Thank you!

knitted, crocheted, or sewn lavender sachets – I’m making socks for everyone on my Xmas list this year, and I’d like to include a lavender sachet with each package.  Neutral colors and modern/ elegant fabrics would be best (think upholstery fabric or IKEA-type designs).

SUPPLIES
pre-loved is more than fine for these!  and a supplies-only package is great.

wool yarn scraps --  Inspired by mimiw, I’m collecting scraps of wool (or other animal fiber) for a scrappy knitting project.  Send me the odds and ends of your projects--handspun scraps work too!  Animal fibers only, and at least 1 yard per scrap, please!   A whole package of these would make me very happy!

needle-felting kit

dried lavender for making sachets

blocking board

embroidery patterns --  Japanese, sublime stitching (especially artists’ series #7, #5, #3, chinese acrobats, vintage lamps, vital organs), clover (kitchen, animals, garden), wee wonderfuls, anything vintage / modern  (but no cutesy animals, country, or kitsch, please)

vintage nightgown and lingerie patterns, small-medium sizes

vintage sheets in good condition -- flowers are fine, but go easy on the pink!   

bird-watching kit -- I'm totally ignorant about birds but have been thinking that I would love to learn!

OR anything you like to craft that you think fits my taste based on my wishes or wists (http://www.wists.com/oneredboot)

Thanks so much!

Post by: MissDisney on April 21, 2009 11:20:10 AM
i claim la_chrystelle for a painting (is 8x10 ok?) for her wall


First claim this round, 0 sent, 0 received

About Me
Hi there..My name is Amber, I live in Las Vegas, NV with my husband, best friend and dad (along with our mini pack of pups and other animals). I am an extremely open minded person. My hobbies are many and varied. My top 5 addictions are:
1. Disney (that is REALLY number one lol)
 2. TV (I have more favorite shows that most, going on 40 I believe, I need to update the list again hehe)
3. Music (mostly I listen to Disney Pop, Top 40 and Pop but I like most music aside from techno, metal and rap…mellow or positive, that’s what I like)
4. Crafting (I spend every single day crafting, with very few breaks, though I do take time off when I need to)
5. The Sims (I LOVE the Sims, I have played since 2001 and cant wait till June when the newest base TS3 comes out)

I am an open book, so if you have any questions about anything on my list or if you have an idea of your own, please feel free to run it by me, I don’t bite lol.


ALLERGIES AND PREFERENCES
I am allergic to wool and have a very sensitive nose (smoke and musk make my head hurt and I tend to sneeze). I love floral scents, fruity scents and baked good aromas. I am a staunch atheist, so I prefer not to receive anything from a religious text or image of a god (with the exception of Buddha, because though I don’t follow the faith, I am Asian, and nothing screams Asian to me like Buddha). I also don’t like leather or fur (faux is great though). Sexualized Disney things are a no-no but sexual things are awesome! Basically any adult themed item will make me a very happy me. I am not picky about colors, as long as they are theme accurate (like mickey mouse should never be neon, and things like that). I don’t like anime at all, but I love Kawaii foods and inanimate objects, not Sanrio.

NOTE: anything on my wist would be awesome too!

CRAFTED ITEMS
--a bathrobe with my initials on it (again, if you can work Disney or Mickey Mouse into it, i would love it)
--t-shirts with ANY of my favorite shows (listed on my profile, there are over 30 choices)      -thank you sunspotted!
--a beach tote bag in teal, brown and white (my summer colors)
--Miami Dolphins themed anything (my husband and my favorite team)
--a peasant skirt (I love all colors, and can wear anything but wool)
--bubble bath, bath salts, bath teas....basically anything that will make bath time more relaxing and enjoyable
--handmade soap, oh how i love handmade soap (especially with tea leaf essential oil)
--jewelry (any theme..really ANY, i love jewelry, especially CHUNKY necklaces)   - Thank you phoenixfiredesigns
--knit or crocheted socks or slippers  --thank you sunspotted!
--ANYTHING in Teal and White color schemes. My best friend was diagnosed in the first week of March with cervical cancer. She startsed chemo recently
--ANYTHING for any room in my house in the following themes. Hidden and Mickey themed things in the appropriate colors is a HUGE bonus
          Kitchen - Adventureland - anything Tiki , jungle (but not cutesy), Indiana      Jones or Pirates of the Caribbean themed that I can use to accent my kitchen in any way. Jars, towels, decorations, cozies for appliances.
          Dining Room - Frontierland - Big Thunder Mountain and Old West themes for the table, or the walls
          Living Room  - Tomorrowland - It is a black, silver and white color scheme, mostly we need wall art (ANY of the Attractions, past or present) and decorative elements
          Stairwell - Main St USA basically a vintage Americana theme, with a firm grasp on the Victorian styles from early american colonial builing. Curtains (I have 6 tall thin windows), wall art depicting Disney classic films, and decorative frames to add pictures of our family.
          Master Bedroom - Fantasyland -light pink, powder blue and cream with sparkles (that DO NOT flake, my husband has a glitter phobia, and he cant deal with any glitter that flakes, but anything that is naturally sparkly like chiffon and things like that are awesome). We have a King bed, and that’s pretty much it. Wall art from any of the Princess films (Mulan, Pocahontas, Alice, etc are not princesses), decorative pillows and bed shams would be so welcomed.
          Master Bathroom  - Donald Duck - My husband’s favorite character ever, and so I gave him the Master bath to show his love. The colors are Blue, White, Yellow and Orange and we need ANYTHING for that room (I havent started at all yet lol). Our master bath doesn’t have a place for a shower curtain though.
          Foyer/Loft area - World Showcase - There are 11 countries in the World showcase, all vastly different. The main color scheme is Morroccan based, but for the walls, we want art and decorations for ALL the countries.
          Office/Studio - Mickey Mouse - Red, Black and White with a hint of yellow. Mostly decorative things, but anything that can STORE other things would be awesome. I never have enough storage J

Crafting Supplies  
--a scrapbook kit for hiking (my new hobby)
-- Disney stuff. Be it characters or movies or the parks, or historical stuff (books on Walt or the making of the parks. I have some, but always love new opportunities to broaden my knowledge.
-- ANY STICKERS!!!!! (I started journaling, and I use the stickers to break up the pages, I love BIG ones a lot, but any type, size color, theme..anything…if you have used sets that you don’t know what to do with, I promise they will find a home in my journals)
--black white and red cotton yarn (I want to make a sarong for my summer)

--rub-ons (letters, designs, anything really)
--BIG WISH!!!!!! Felt, LOTS AND LOTS of felt….any color (but not made of wool, I am allergic, and I sew with it..you can imagine how uncomfortable that could get) the acryllic felt that’s like .29 cents a sheet is ideal! --


Extras

Post by: animegirlie on April 21, 2009 01:32:04 PM
I claim miss disney for some  chunky jewelry and probably an assortment of other things probably disney related ;)

About me – I'm a 6 foot tall, 35 y.o. living in Hollywood.

Allergies - no patchouli, sandal wood, nag champa (not actually allergic to these, but they make my nose run horribly), If you send me food stuff, I don't eat mammals but I'm not a vegetarian. My S.O. is allergic to cats - but if you're careful and/or wash & clean thoroughly before sending , he'll be ok. On another food note - I'm allergic to blue food coloring, yes, just blue. If you send me anything that has a scent, I prefer citrus over any other smells.

Things I love: dogs, computers, technology, the internet, circuit board patterns, sci-fi, anime - anything Japanese really but especially hello kitty and san-x, dragon flies, the subway, hummingbirds, hearts, cherry blossoms, bikes

My favorite clothing designers = Oakley, Diesel, and Free People
… Dress wise, I do conservative but hip for work (I work at an internet company so I can't dress too stuffy). I'm a t-shirt and jeans girl at home. I love the idea of high heel tennis shoes

Favorite colors: Cobalt Blue (any blue really as long as it doesn't look turquoise or aqua), Pink, Khaki Green, Red, Orange.

Yuck colors: I hate aquamarine, yellow, and turquoise - I don't really hate yellow, but it hates me. I don't like gold toned metals either.

Please package whatever you send me in the smallest box, envelope, whatever as possible because I have a TINY mail box.

Oh and NO Disney related stuff unless I specifically say it's ok!

On To The List…

big wishes in red and bold


Wearable Stuff:

If you plan to make me any wearable stuff, please PM me for measurements.

1. simple a-line skirt – knee length (will send you measurements)
2. Bloomers or bike shorts to wear with skirts while riding my bike.
3. 2" wide fabric belt that's kinda long (can be sash style or with a buckle)  - in any of my favorite colors, denim, or a pretty girlie print (fabric inspiration on my wists).
4. The coffee date dress from burda style. I love it but it needs so many mods to fit me it isn't funny (no really - to start, it's a petite...)
5. branching out knit scarf from knitty - I am a slow slow slow knitter....

Other Crafty Stuff:

1. amigurumi cuteness – animals, plants, food with faces to join the rest of the stuffies in my cube. (take a look at my previous posts - I have a picture of all of them together posted on one of these galleries) - Thank you MandyLikesPie for the puppy and cactus & Miss moppet for my coffee cup - but no girl can have too many stuffed animals!
2. Your ATC's or ATC style artwork that I can hang in my cube at work (fairly small scale) - thanks banga (I can always use more :) )
3. a pop art style painting of my German Shepherd in blues or reds (I will provide photos, small scale as this will probably be on my desk at home or work)
4. A very simple lap quilt and/or pillow that I can keep at the office (can be fleece or whatever, not picky) with a Tinker Bell or Jessica Rabbit embroidered or stenciled on it – this is the only wish I’m lifting the Disney ban on.
5. Anything with a sewing machine or crochet hooks on it
6. re-usable sandwich wrappers & a large lunch bag (you know the ones made of fabric with a plastic lining to replace sandwich bags) Would LOVE if they had a circuit board pattern or ANY fabric from my wists. There is now an example on my wists - some other crafter read my mind. 
7. Pillows for my new couch (just plain - nothing girlie - PM me for more more info if you feel like making pillow covers)
8. magazine storage folders decorated with patterns from my wist or plain black. (setting up a studio to share with the hubby.
9. seat pads for stools in black or a pattern from my wists.

And….

I’m always up for a crafted surprise from the wists – I think I like these wishes more sometimes  ;D you people are so creative!! (anything that says "thank you" in the title I've already received).
http://wists.com/animegirlie2 (http://wists.com/animegirlie2)

Supplies:

2. Vintage Buttons – preferably from 30’s to 60’s any size, any color (no novelty buttons please – I prefer the classic styles, but flowers are ok)
3. Felt squares, any color, wool (preferred) or polyester
4. half inch round circle hole punch
Tag shaped hole puncher
5. wacky shaped hole punch (interpret how you like)
6. ring blanks
7. Bails for necklaces - the little loopy things that you glue on the back of a pendant...does that make sense?
8. 6x6 frames in plain wood - no glass needed - used to frame stuff for a living can handle all but making the frames (6x6 is a weird size).
9. Yarn - I can always use yarn
10. Hand spun yarn in burnt orange (see my photos - same color as my FBB) with sparkly copper fiber spun in.

Extras:
1. Hello Kitty anything
2. San-X - Mr. Cold stuff would AWESOME

7. I collect Japanese style teapots - if you have one you don't want.....
8. I also collect antique (B&W) photos of plants and landscapes

thank you in advance for crafting for me :)

Post by: Velvet Rose on April 21, 2009 11:47:00 PM

I claim animegirlie for some ATC style art. This is my third claim - none sent.

ABOUT ME

I live in Australia but I have only asked for lightwieght items - so hopefully I won't stall the swap.  ;)

I love crafting and am currently exploring papercrafts.

I prefer natural fibres and fabrics to synthetic ones (for environmental and tactile reasons). I adore vintage florals (pre 1970), vintage brocade/damask. baroque/rococo style prints, cotton velvet, botanical prints and fabrics with silhouettes of leaves or branches/trees like Joel Dewberry's ones. I'm not a fan of stripes, spots, plaids/checks, skulls, country/cutesy, or disney/anime stuff.

I love berry shades, dark reds, muted pinks & purples, leaf green, and chocolate brown.  No neons or black please, and I'm not too keen on yellow, orange, or navy.

Please see my profile and wists for more info.

CRAFTED ITEMS

SEWN

NEW Pocket tissue holder
I would love a holder/cover for the pack of pocket tissues I carry around in m purse. Please see my fabric and colour preferences above and check my wist for ideas.

Drawstring bags
I could really use some cotton drawstring bags to carry my shoes and underwear when I go on vacation. See my colour and fabric preferences above.

CROCHETED[
b]Crocheted cotton purse[/b]
I would love a small crocheted purse made from cotton yarn in dark reds, purples and  berry shades with a long shoulder strap & flap - big enough to hold my wallet, keys, & phone when I go on walks around the neighbourhood. One made from granny squares would be nice. Teaching Jonah made me a beautiful pastel one in the last round which I am using in the summer months and I would love one for winter as well.

Crocheted cotton drink bottle holders Thanks Miss_Kassandra
I would love crocheted cotton drink bottle holders with a carrying strap for my children's water bottles. Both bottles are 750mls in size. My daughter likes reds, pinks and oranges and my son likes blues and greens. (No synthetic yarns please).


Crocheted Cotton Flowers
I'm collecting crocheted flowers made with cotton yarn in all shades of pink and berry shades to match the beautiful crocheted purse that I received in a previous round.

Crocheted cotton market/shopping bag
One that folds up into its own pocket. See my colour preferences above and my wists for examples

KNITTED

Knitted Woollen Socks
I would love a pair of pure wool hand knitted socks in any of the berry shades. I'm not really into stripes but a variegated yarn would be nice. Shoe size is US 9

PRINTED

Screen/gocco printed cards
See my wists for ideas. I love botanical prints - modern or vintage inspired.

JEWELLERY/JEWELRY

Earrings/rings/brooches made with vintage floral cabs or cameos
See my colour preferences above and my wists for examples. Please use sterling silver earring wires as my ears are allergic to nickel.

Crafted items from my wists

I claim Velvet Rose for a tissue holder and something wisty.

Claim 3/0 sent/0 rec

I am a 25 year old mom of 3 living in WA, United States (about an hour from Seattle). I am a recent college graduate (accounting). My family is very much a baseball family! I love to spoil my kids, as you can see much of my wists are kid things. I love butterflies and dragonflies, reading, photography, and various other random things. My favorite color is bright royal blue. I also really like chocolate brown and teal together. Any questions, just pm me! Oh yeah, my only aversions are smoke and anything inappropriate around kids or things my little ones will destroy (knick knack type things).

And now for the list (biggest wishes in bold):

Crafts

Hair barettes from my two girls. I love the Disney princess ribbon ones on my wist.

I claim leighi123 for reusable produce bags and a color matching game for her son

Claim #4 this round - I just can't help myself!  Do we have swappers anonymous here?  (2, 1, 1)

I am Nicole, in my late 20s, full time SAHM to my 15 month old daughter, and part time childcare worker.  I live in the Denver, CO area.  Prior to my SAHM-ing, I was an elementary music teacher, so I love all things musical!  Crafts I like to do include scrapbooking, knitting, and sewing; although I do dabble in lots of different things.  I love earthy colors, especially browns, greens, grays, and blues.   I dislike neons, licensed cartoon caracters (think Dora, Disney, etc.), and skulls.

Crafts:

** Knitted or crocheted longies, shorties, or skirty for my munchkin – PM me for exact measurements, but she’s pretty much a medium
Yummy handspun yarn goodness
Jewelry ala phoenixfiredesigns  I wear silver toned jewelry; necklaces and earrings - but not too dangley or large on the earrings, as I have a toddler who is fascinated with shiny things.
Sewing machine cover in a fun fabric thanks claire313!!
Skirt like this one  http://wists.com/6a3f325dcfa1a05b96d4c8f2e1d66085?q=skirt&offset=0 – PM me for sizing info
** Vintage-y decorated tshirts, size L (I like the longer styles of tshirts) Examples on my wists
Knit socks love love love!  Especially with cute patterns in the stitching!
Re-usable sandwich wraps
Everyday cloth napkins – a set of 6 would be great, my kitchen is sage green, kind of a French country feel   thanks freestyle!  I could use one more set, maybe chocolate brown or tan?
Placemats maybe to match my napkins?  Or not, just placemats to match my kitchen would be great!
Sun hat for my munchkin
Vintage inspired apron, examples on my wists
Penguin, owl, cat, or octopus amigurumi or stuffy, or any kind, really thanks antarcticraft!  You can never have too many stuffies!
Playhouse/tent thing for a card table like this: http://wists.com/musicalmama/7ebb89a94c17d9f9875b71400f034d1d?offset=0  Huge wish, I know, but one can dream!
Embroidered pillowcases for the master bedroom, quilt colors are either dark green, burgundy and pink, or dark green, sage green, and a medium country blue – depending on which quilt I’m using.  I’m so lucky – I have two quilters in my family!  I can get you a photo of the quilts if you need it.
Girl Poppet – with fair skin (normal skin color) and some wild crazy hair color
Small to medium-sized pincushion – I have a monster huge octopus one that I LOVE, but it is not very mobile.  I would love one that could go with me all over.  Maybe a wrist pincushion!
Handmade pottery – a tea pot or cup/saucer set would be really great!
Squashed cat coasters from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=157293.0
I like the idea of a ravelry surprise! My favorites on ravelry are here: http://www.ravelry.com/people/musicalmama/favorites/patterns
A wists –y surprise  My wists:  http://www.wists.com/musicalmama

Supplies:

**Snap pliers for resin/plastic snaps
Resin/plastic snaps (mostly white, but other colors are good)
Vintage children’s book illustrations (fairy tale stories) – I’m decoupaging an end table for the munchkin’s room.  I don’t need the original illustrations, a good color copy will work just fine!
Cute fabric to make little girl’s clothing – at least a yard
Vintage clothing patterns for toddler girl
Waste canvas for cross-stitch
Penguin fabric, any fun patterned fabric
Men’s hoodie, size medium, without a zipper – plain black (I can’t find this anywhere!)
Embroidery stitch book/pattern book - I’m trying to get back into this.
Handspun yarn goodness
Natural fiber yarn (wool, alpaca, cotton, bamboo, etc)
Needle felting kit – I would love to learn this!
Polymer clay starter kit
Resin starter kit – I’d love to make some of those spoon pendants!
Spinning starter kit

Extras:

Postcard/photo from where you live
Anything penguin-ey
Chocolate  mmmm  Chocolate
Tea

OK *deep breath* I claim musiclady for handspun yarn, some extras and possibly a few other bits.

This is my first claim. Zero sent, zero received. Just to confuse you all, this list is now ever so subtly different.

Hi! I'm Seph, and I live in London. Steampunky/antiquey jewellery in copper and brass can tempt me, but I mostly wear silver - and never, ever gold. My favourite colour is really offensively hot pink. I like swirly, flock, damask, fleur de lys, filligree-type patterns, especially if they're glamorously boudoir-looking and in black/pink/white. Think Victorian elegance and gothic glamour :-) I am however by no means immune to the cute and kitsch, especially quirky 50s-esque styles! I have a Thing for ampersands (the '&' symbol) and other particuarly loved motifs include theatrical tragi/comi masks and padlock/key things. Especially the locks! I love anything with the words 'slut' or 'whore' on it, especially if it seems out-of-place (see the teaset on my wists). I am a vegetarian, so please nothing that isn't veggie. My proportions are 47-44-54 and I'm 5'2".

You can of course find all sorts of amazingly awesome stuff that I love very much on my wists, and a wisty surprise is always more than welcome! Super duper massive wishes are in bold.

Crafted things:
  • A set of four (two larger and two smaller) decorated/handmade/altered food and water bowls for my cats
  • Any sort of black skirt, preferably either very long or very short but other lengths good too :-) Non-black skirts also welcomed if you think they're 'me'.
  • A full-length apron, possibly with a pocket, in a gorgeous fabric. Something stylish and retro housewifeish and kitsch. The kitchen is going to be aqua and black with accents of zebraprint, so if it could co-ordinate with that I'd be very happy :-)
  • Handspun yarn, the art-yarnier the better!
  • Soaps, bath bombs, bath salts, etc. If you make me something that turns my bathwater pink I will love you forever. I am especially wanting some felted soap.
  • A netbook case for an Acer Aspire One (google should give you measurements), ideally with a space/pocket for the power lead.
  • I'm gearing up for uni and after loads of awesomely beautiful things that might help. Lavishly overdecorated ringbinders, pens, notebooks, pencil cases and the like SO MUCH appreciated!
  • Decorated/handmade/altered/awesome crochet hooks. I mostly use between 4.5mm and 7mm.
  • A smallish, compact project bag for my crochet.
  • I would totally adore a tree of life pendant like the ones pheonixfiredesigns makes, with rich green stones.
  • A largeish tote bag, with handles long enough for me to carry over my shoulder. This would need to be really quite durable, please - it's going to get used a lot, and sometimes have quite heavy things in it!
  • Bookmarks :-D
  • Safe, sturdy toys for my cats. Eric likes balls and things that roll around for him to chase, Gwendolen (whose name almost nobody can spell right, for some reason) likes dangles and things for me to wiggle for her to attack.
  • Jewelery! Though I do wear studs if they're cool enough I prefer big, dangly earrings and don't mind if they're a bit heavy. I have largeish wrists (7.5-8in) and I look really rubbish in chokers, preferring necklaces that hang to the decolletage [grin] I'm also allergic to nickel.
  • Stitch markers. I seriously don't have any. Yeah, I realise how random that is.
  • Polymer clay chocolate charms, the ones that look like the chocs/truffles you get in posh chocolate boxes.

Supplies and extras:
  • Basically any beading/jewellerymaking supplies you can think of. Believe me, I'll find a use for them! Particular loves, in case you need help, are cameos, unusual and ornate clasps/finishings/findings and spectacular focal beads.
  • Ditto for papercraft/scrapbooking. Again, particular favorites are gorgeous 12x12 papers, unusual alphabet stickers, those sticky 3d embellishments and brads. My favourite papercraft company, for inspiration, is probably 7Gypsies :-)
  • Wool roving/tops/batts, of the spinnable sort rather than the felting sort.
  • Yarn. Basically any yarn. I want a stash [grin]
  • Just lately I've been feeling an urge to start collecting buttons. I have no idea why this is. But they're awesome, and I want to be able to decorate things with them and use them in jewellery and stitch them onto stuff, and I just suddenly want to have loads of buttons. So yeah, buttons would be great!
  • FOs, EOs, glitter, pigments, dried petals...anything for soap/bath bombs, basically. Also the more basic supplies are always appreciated - citric acid and m&p base especially.
  • Fat quarters of fabulous fabrics
  • Kool-aid or similar in any flavour - it doesn't exist this side of the pond, and I want to experiment with using it to dye fiber/yarn. Also I kind of want to try it, having heard so much about it [grin]
  • A resin starter kit. I've been wanting to try resin for ages but getting all the supplies together seems so complicated, and I'm convinced I'll buy *slightly* the wrong thing and it will all go horribly bad.
  • If you're sending from the US, I'd really appreciate some Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - I LOVE them, and we don't get them over here.
  • And for that matter, all chocolate! Mmmmm, chocolate...milk chocolate is my favourite and I love anything with peanut butter (though am not so crazy about actual peanuts). I don't much like Hershey's, either.

Thank you lots and lots and lots in advance [grin]

I'm going to claim Rain for a Tree of Life pendant.

Claim #5 overall / 1 pending / 1 in transit / 2 received

About Me
Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. My favorite colors are jewel tones like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber. I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.) My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy. I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together. My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes. I love to read, I enjoy photography and I love all things Disney!

ALLERGIES
I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.

Crafts
*big wish -- A purse in this kind of style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/61667fb21176b1747a33ba44f03a0028?offset=0). I LOVE, LOVE LOVE this bag. The mix of the cord and the cable...? LOVE. (Could use an existing sweater for the knit part as well if you don't knit. I think that'd work just fine as well.)

*big wish* -- A robe like this one (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/a3a42670262dc240c5598e8e52c486a4?offset=0). It's just so lovely and I desperately need a robe. (3/4 length or long-sleeves, and mid-length overall. Not too short, not too long. I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*big wish* -- A tote like this one (http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/products/item/Miranda_Day_Bag/221/p2c50). I love and covet everything about it from the colors, fabric to the pattern.

*big wish* -- This scarf in these exact colors (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=144573.msg1422950#msg1422950). I think this is one of the most perfect things ever. I don't really need scarves as a rule because I live in Florida, but I'd find reasons to wear one like this!

*big wish* -- A Slanket! (http://www.theslanket.com/) I almost bought a "snuggie" but the fabric was icky. (It was like thin felt.) I want soft, awesome microfiber fleece stuff, you know? Something long enough to cover my toes as well. I'm forever using a blanket on the couch so this would come in hand GREATLY.

*big wish* -- An Autumn Leaf Barrette (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18272578). I miss autumn since we don't get leaves changing colors here in Florida.

*big wish* -- A migraine therapy kit like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20774277). I have had migraines for more than 15 years and this kind of thing DOES help.

 -- A leaf embroidered wallet like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vt_related_1&listing_id=23776357).

 -- Anything with a phoenix on it. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/phoenix) as inspiration.

 -- A purse like the first one here (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=298123.0) or like this (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/c5d2a19d60084c0229627371d990ae27?offset=0). I like the shape of both styles but it's really the look and colors of the fabric I'm really sold on. So something in similar colors/patterns would be great. Here are more I've wisted for inspiration. (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/purse)

 -- A leather tree ipod touch case like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vt_related_1&listing_id=23838665). It's SO pretty. (Brown leather please.)

 -- A cool fitted tee like these. I love the colors of these examples. I wear a US size 4 or typically a size small or medium. I pretty much live in baby doll/fitted tees.
 - http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b8278a3977c184f0454e3661b44d5913?offset=0
 - http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b43d1d191ced6ae1babfd7c537c6ecc1?offset=0
thanks bkrenning4! I'm leaving it up though for more potential claims. You can never have enough tees

 -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, glass mosaic item, etc. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself.

 -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft (no wool please because it itches me) I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. (HUGE bonus if it's argyle pattern. I don't know why but I love argyle.)

 -- Yoga pants! (examples: like this (http://www.barefootyoga.com/Detail.bok?no=697) or this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=275503.msg3115666;topicseen#msg3115666)) Roomy, 3/4 length or floor length (30" inseam) comfy, soft, cottony, not too tight on the waist. I lounge in them on my days off and I just love 'em. (US size 4 short length or I can send measurements if need be)
 
 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or a bowl or a tea mug or whatever. Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (A couple things I've wisted for inspiration.) (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/pottery)

 -- Something glass work like a vase or something. Blown or torch or whatever. A cool medium I don't know how to work with at all. This (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/glass/703db4106894a1496d86597b54fa03b1?offset=0) is really pretty for example.

 -- Things for my apartment in Teal Blue and Chocolate Brown. I love these colors together. And I'd love something in them for the home. A quilt or throw; art; kitchen accessories; pillows; curtains, etc., etc.

 -- Wrist warmers in this pattern. (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=98&d_id=8&lang=en) It's just utterly cool.

 -- Disney stuff. Be it characters (like Mickey, Figment, Belle, Mike & Sulley, etc.) or movies (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Monster's Inc., Lady and the Tramp, etc.) or the parks (I live near WDW but I've never been to Disneyland), or historical stuff (books on Walt or the making of the parks, etc.), or things I can use/take to/wear about any of the above, I LOVE DISNEY. So by all means, get creative! ;D

 -- Something (surprise me!) incorporating owls, penguins, bats, cats or red foxes. They're my favorite animals. Note: At this point, I probably have enough owl stuffies/amis so something besides that please.

 -- Fused glass or glass (microscope) slide pendants you think I'd like. (Here are some wisted inspiration items as examples.) (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/glass)

 -- Hand carved stamps in themes I like that I can use for making cards and such.

 -- A ribbon organizer (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/a6a4463a2bc31406c13fdf0cab4bc218?offset=0). Doesn't have to be this fabric. It's more the idea and the style of storage that I like here. Chocolate/Teal color combo would be great as would fun/cute fabric or prints (like owls or something.)

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns) or my wishlist (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/wishlist/397IKAEGOJ51E/), or the colors I like and see what you can make that you think I'd like.

ALL ABOUT ME

Claims:3
Sent: 2
Received: 1

I am a 44 year old wife and mother.  I live in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.   I have one dog (jack russell), two fish tanks, two hamsters, and an anole (kinda like a chameleon).

I do jewelery, stenciling, mosaics, paint, paper crafts...I dabble in many different crafts, but don't do any of them consistently. I have a limited attention span!  Get bored easily!  But, I love to learn new things! 

What do I love besides my husband and kids?   I love long skirts, long coats, embellished jeans, pull-over hoodies, and boots!   I love white, black and red.  Not into pastels or frills! 

My tastes vary from day-to-day.  Very eclectic.  One day I'm extremely funky, the next very elegant.  Never know... So, wish list changes, ALOT!  But my wist gives you a pretty good idea of my varied likes.  I keep them well updated.

I'm going to claim bkrenning4 for some wisty surprises.

Claim #6 overall /  3 of 3 current / 1 in transit / 3 received

About Me
Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 year old woman (turning 32 on May 16th!) who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. My favorite colors are jewel tones like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber. I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.) My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy. I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together. My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes. I love to read, I enjoy photography and I love all things Disney!

ALLERGIES
I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.

Crafts

Sewing

*big wish -- A purse in this kind of style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/61667fb21176b1747a33ba44f03a0028?offset=0). I LOVE, LOVE LOVE this bag. The mix of the cord and the cable...? LOVE. (Could use an existing sweater for the knit part as well if you don't knit. I think that'd work just fine as well.)

*big wish* -- A robe like this one (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/a3a42670262dc240c5598e8e52c486a4?offset=0). It's just so lovely and I desperately need a robe. (3/4 length or long-sleeves, and mid-length overall. Not too short, not too long. I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*big wish* -- A tote like this one (http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/products/item/Miranda_Day_Bag/221/p2c50). I love and covet everything about it from the colors, fabric to the pattern.

*big wish* -- A Slanket! (http://www.theslanket.com/) I almost bought a "snuggie" but the fabric was icky. (It was like thin felt.) I want soft, awesome microfiber fleece stuff, you know? Something long enough to cover my toes as well. I'm forever using a blanket on the couch so this would come in hand GREATLY.

*big wish* -- A migraine therapy kit like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20774277). I have had migraines for more than 15 years and this kind of thing DOES help.

 -- A leaf embroidered wallet like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vt_related_1&listing_id=23776357).

 -- A purse like the first one here (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=298123.0) or like this (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/c5d2a19d60084c0229627371d990ae27?offset=0). I like the shape of both styles but it's really the look and colors of the fabric I'm really sold on. So something in similar colors/patterns would be great. Here are more I've wisted for inspiration. (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/purse)


Knitting

*big wish* -- This scarf in these exact colors (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=144573.msg1422950#msg1422950). I think this is one of the most perfect things ever. I don't really need scarves as a rule because I live in Florida, but I'd find reasons to wear one like this!

 -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft (no wool please because it itches me) I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. (HUGE bonus if it's argyle pattern. I don't know why but I love argyle.)

 -- Wrist warmers in this pattern. (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=98&d_id=8&lang=en) It's just utterly cool.


Other

*big wish* -- An Autumn Leaf Barrette (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18272578). I miss autumn since we don't get leaves changing colors here in Florida.

 -- Anything with a phoenix on it. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/phoenix) as inspiration.

 -- A leather tree ipod touch case like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vt_related_1&listing_id=23838665). It's SO pretty. (Brown leather please.)

 -- A cool fitted tee like these. I love the colors of these examples. I wear a US size 4 or typically a size small or medium. I pretty much live in baby doll/fitted tees.
 - http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b8278a3977c184f0454e3661b44d5913?offset=0
 - http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b43d1d191ced6ae1babfd7c537c6ecc1?offset=0
thanks bkrenning4! I'm leaving it up though for more potential claims. You can never have enough tees

 -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, glass mosaic item, etc. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself.

 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or a bowl or a tea mug or whatever. Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (A couple things I've wisted for inspiration.) (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/pottery)

 -- Something glass work like a vase or something. Blown or torch or whatever. A cool medium I don't know how to work with at all. This (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/glass/703db4106894a1496d86597b54fa03b1?offset=0) is really pretty for example.

 -- Things for my apartment in Teal Blue and Chocolate Brown. I love these colors together. And I'd love something in them for the home. A quilt or throw; art; kitchen accessories; pillows; curtains, etc., etc.

 -- Disney stuff. Be it characters (like Mickey, Figment, Belle, Mike & Sulley, etc.) or movies (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Monster's Inc., Lady and the Tramp, etc.) or the parks (I live near WDW but I've never been to Disneyland), or historical stuff (books on Walt or the making of the parks, etc.), or things I can use/take to/wear about any of the above, I LOVE DISNEY. So by all means, get creative! ;D

 -- Something (surprise me!) incorporating owls, penguins, bats, cats or red foxes. They're my favorite animals. Note: At this point, I probably have enough owl stuffies/amis so something besides that please.

 -- Fused glass or glass (microscope) slide pendants you think I'd like. (Here are some wisted inspiration items as examples.) (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/glass)

 -- A ribbon organizer (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/a6a4463a2bc31406c13fdf0cab4bc218?offset=0). Doesn't have to be this fabric. It's more the idea and the style of storage that I like here. Chocolate/Teal color combo would be great as would fun/cute fabric or prints (like owls or something.)

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns) or my wishlist (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/wishlist/397IKAEGOJ51E/), or the colors I like and see what you can make that you think I'd like.


Craft Supplies
 
-- Sewing stuff: Fabricgasm! I'm a new sewer so I covet fabrics now. And/or Sewing notions, tools or other helpful stuff a newbie sewer would need/covet/want/drool over. (Threads, buttons, snaps, etc.) I'm holding off on this right now since I have a couple packages heading my way!

-- Complete Guide To Sewing Book in either this new edition (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0762104201) or this older edition (http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Guide-Sewing-Step-Step/dp/0888502478). I'm still a very novice sewer who could make use of a reference book like this. (Especially since no one I know locally sews!) thanks, tatatortuga!

 -- Doodle Stitching book like this (http://www.amazon.com/Doodle-Stitching-Fresh-Embroidery-Beginners/dp/1600590616/ref=wl_it_dp?ie=UTF8&coliid=I3U1KSGKRZ8M28&colid=397IKAEGOJ51E). I've never tried it but it seems like it might be fun.

 -- Starter resin kit/supplies (resin, molds, etc.)

 -- Starter rubber stamp carving stuff. (Maybe a kit or items like tools, the rubber to carve into, how-to/instructions, etc.)

 -- Gemstones and gemstone beads. In every shape, size and color. Donuts, cabs, chips - anything! I LOVE working with gemstones and I can never, ever have enough.

 -- Lampwork beads.

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such.

Post by: oneredboot on April 27, 2009 05:32:15 PM
I claim Banga for "sweet baby girl clothing".  This is my 4th claim, 2 sent, 1 in transit, 1 received.

I'm an ABD grad student in art history, 32, living in North Carolina.  I knit, sew, and am new to embroidery.  My aesthetic is very minimal--I try to surround myself with simple, beautiful, natural things.  William Morris said it best:  “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”  I love natural colors and materials, especially organic and sustainable, and various shades of grey, blue, green, and brown (and lovely clear red). 

Here's my wishlist.  Thank you!

CRAFTS

felted rocks (http://www.designspongeonline.com/2009/02/diy-wednesday-felted-rocks.html)

summer shawl or wide scarf in summer-weight yarns or fabric--perhaps in clear red, white, or medium blue?

large fabric bucket like this one (http://jansdotter.com/shop/item.php?serial=3036) or any of the burlap buckets at mayamade (http://www.etsy.com/shop_sold.php?user_id=5806647)
 
reusable sandwich wraps  (http://www.craftstylish.com/item/43227/how-to-make-a-reusable-sandwich-wrap) and snack bags

fabric shower cap  (http://sites.google.com/site/hoppobumpo/Home/shower-cap-tutorial)

knitted, crocheted, or sewn lavender sachets – I’m making socks for everyone on my Xmas list this year, and I’d like to include a lavender sachet with each package.  Neutral colors and modern/ elegant fabrics would be best (think upholstery fabric or IKEA-type designs). 

drawstring bags to use for “wrapping” gift socks.  Big enough to fit a pair of socks.  Neutral colors and modern/ elegant fabrics would be best (think upholstery fabric or IKEA-type designs).  Simple muslin or osanburg cloth with botanical –type stencils or stamps would be perfect!

soft embroidered handkerchiefs

dish scrubbies made from recycled plastic bags

handspun or hand-dyed yarn

tea towels -- embroidered, embellished, or stenciled

outer space stuffies -- these little  robot / space guys (http://weewonderfuls.typepad.com/wee_wonderfuls/store/)
 
jewelry made of recycled china, fused glass, or stained glass

modern laminated-fabric placemats (http://blairpeter.typepad.com/weblog/2009/03/the-daily-placemats.html)

hand-thrown green, brown, blue or purple ceramic bowls

hand-woven, -painted, -dyed, -printed, or -stenciled  textiles of any kind


SUPPLIES
pre-loved is more than fine for these!  and a supplies-only package is great.

wool yarn scraps --  Inspired by mimiw, I’m collecting scraps of wool (or other animal fiber) for a scrappy knitting project.  Send me the odds and ends of your projects--handspun scraps work too!  Animal fibers only, and at least 1 yard per scrap, please!   A whole package of these would make me very happy!

needle-felting kit

wool felt

dried lavender for making sachets

sock blockers in all sizes (kids, adult S, M, L)

blocking board

embroidery patterns --  Japanese, sublime stitching (especially artists’ series #7, #5, #3, chinese acrobats, vintage lamps, vital organs), clover (kitchen, animals, garden), wee wonderfuls, anything vintage / modern  (but no cutesy animals, country, or kitsch, please)

pom pom tree -- a type of pom pom maker (http://pages.e-yarn.com/6030/PictPage/1325219.html)

vintage nightgown and lingerie patterns, small-medium sizes

vintage sheets in good condition -- flowers are fine, but go easy on the pink!   

bird-watching kit -- I'm totally ignorant about birds but have been thinking that I would love to learn!

OR anything you like to craft that you think fits my taste based on my wishes or wists (http://www.wists.com/oneredboot)

Thanks so much!

I claim bsonlytoots for funky earrings

This is my first claim this round.

I am 26 years old and I am sahm to my 19 mth old daughter, Abigail. I live in Ontario, Canada. My husband works in finance and is an avid golfer. But enough about him. I love to cook, sew and make jewellery. I also paint occasionally and am interested in trying resin pendants, knitting, and dying/spinning yarn. I live in a small town and we don't have a fabric store or a craft store so sending me a package with just supplies is fine with me! I was diagnosed last year with Candida so I'm now trying to "heal" myself with healthier lifestyle choices (food, exercise, massage, vitamins…etc) Also, my husband is allergic to cats and I'm sensitive to cigarette smoke so if you're home has either, please wash, febreeze or air out your items before shipping. Thanks!

Big wishes are bolded.

CRAFTS
* Anything inspired by my wist http://www.wists.com/AbbyRose
* Toddler bibs for my 19mth old. Large ones with good coverage, but they must look cute :) Snaps or velcro is preferred to ties. Big bold girly prints or fun and cute applique animals or flowers. Ribbons and lace would be nice too.[/b]
* Car seat strap covers in similar fabrics to this.  Could be in very girly colours too if you have them.

* Homemade bath soaks or fizzy balls. I don’t like floral or musky smells. I love cucumber melon, peppermint, citrus, lavender and green tea therapy scents.
* Reusable Swiffer pads like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=165049.0 Colour doesn’t really matter as long as it’s two different colours.
* Knit or crochet dishcloths
* Funky Apron  in a style like this. the colours and style are great!
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_gallery_14&listing_id=21252139&ga_search_query=apron+fabric&ga_search_type=tag_title&ga_page=4&min=&max=&order=price_desc or this one even though it's meant to be a shirt. I like the way it looks from the front. I do not need the fancy tying at the back or the giant sun on the front but the colours and style are great otherwise.

SUPPLIES
* Fabric Fun, vibrant, abstract prints are preferred, I’m not really into character prints though. I like Alexander Henry Boutique Collection, Joel Dewberry Aviary and pretty much anything Amy Butler or similar styles. I’d prefer nothing smaller than a fat quarter, but, if it’s any of these designer prints listed I’ll take smaller!

*Embellishments to use on hairclips. Preferably no larger than ½”

EXTRAS:

If you’re shipping from the States, I love the Whatchamacalit chocolate bar or regular chocolate (especially truffles)  I also love the light blue Orbit gum. Hubby adores Skittles and Nibs.

Healthy cook books or some of your own favourite healthy recipes. I do my best to avoid wheat, sugar, dairy and preservatives. Good thing I enjoy cooking because this makes eating out very difficult!

I claim claire313 for some work cube cheering and some extras!!!

This is my first swap via Craftster. I have done many personal swaps and I pretty live for receiving and sending mail. So if you are interested in that let me know too!!!

Oh Heyyyy! My name is Sarah, I am 24 and live in Reno, NV. I live with 3 girls and their four cats. I am vegetarian, in an all girl bicycle gang, music freak, collector of old books and manuals and a lover of all bugs, squirrels, chipmunks, and deer. I have no clue what my favorite color is, it seems to change daily.  I not allergic to anything you’d send, unless you try to make a bee charmer out of me. I love old photos, old post cards, old doll parts, vulgar or inappropriate things, sailor stuff, activism, Cyndi Lauper, vintage sunglasses, stationary and anything that doesn’t really make sense.

My main crafts are crocheting and knitting and cross stitch and embroidery. What can I say? I love string.
I am also into writing, hand sewing, stencils, collage and a small amount of painting.

Now on to the important stuff!!!

Crafts-
*Art!!! - Any medium, any size!
*Pillows- Anything different and fun.
*Strange necklaces- Most of my jewelry has been picked up at thrift stores.
*BIG WISH!!! A roll for my crochet hooks and knitting needles- Right now they are all in a glass cup that the cats like to knock over!
*Stationary sets- home made are awesome…sets are hard to find now-a-days.
*BIG WISH!!! Over shoulder bag- One I can wear while riding my bike that will fit a U-lock and water bottle.
*Costumes or props for costumes- I dress up any chance I get and take a lot of photos.
*Anything record or tape related. <3
*Anything nude male related- My house is full of it.  ;)
*Anything bug related- Worms, caterpillars, beetles, snails, slugs, spiders.
*One of those bags to hold grocery store plastic bags- They are taking over our kitchen.
*Piggybank- It doesn’t have to be a piggy, or any animal at all…just need somewhere to store my pennies to move. (My house jokes around and calls it our abortion fund….so it’d be funny if it had something to do with that.)
*Work apron- For messy crafts and working on my bicycle, I’d love if it had pockets.

Supplies and Extras-
*Old photographs
*Old/Odd postcards
*Vintage frames….ornate or gold are the best!!!
*Fun buttons
*Stationary
*Vintage/funny/odd stitching patterns
*Cross stitch cloth in any color
*Things of bugs

I am very excited about this!!!

:)

I claim bsonlytoots for "Jars, tins, baskets, buckets, bowls or anything else to help organize" & scrapbooking supplies.

2nd claim, 1 sent, 0 received

Hi, my name is Marie and I live in Florida (blah).  I’m not big on sunny days unless there’s a motorcycle or jet ski involved in the picture   ::)   I prefer the mountains & lake to beaches any day, but I’m stuck here for a bit.  Luckily, I am very happily married to my best friend and we have two hairy children, Pixie, a cocker-chow and Remington, a lab-retriever.  We own a small house in a small town, but dream of moving to “the sticks” one day.

My favorite things to do are read, sew, surf craftster, ride bitch on the motorcycle and catering to my husband & friends (“beer me bitch” is a term of endearment ‘round these parts, lol), and as of recently, quadding!!!!   

Loves: tattoos, argyle, plaid, guns, the paranormal, lightening storms, coffee/tea/lattes, Celtic anything, rustic/cabin décor, my husband’s red facial hair, MMA (especially Chuck Liddell, /drools), brownies, Nintendo, beer, Chuck Taylors, Braveheart, smutty romance novels, cooking & baking.
