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 46.

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.

I claim fochaux for felt play foods and cloth wipes or bibs, depending on the materials I end up having available.  :)

This is claim #1 for me this round (1, 0, 0)

I am Nicole, 28 year old full time SAHM to my 17 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:

Handpainted wool yarn!!!!!!!  Any kind of colorway is good, but I especially like the rainbow ones.
Knitted or crocheted wool longies, shorties, or skirty for my munchkin – PM me for exact measurements, but she’s pretty much a medium
Headbands for the munchkin like these: http://www.sweetbabybowtique.com/catalog.php?category=96
Yoga skirt like this one: http://wists.com/6a3f325dcfa1a05b96d4c8f2e1d66085?q=skirt&offset=0 – PM me for sizing info
Cloth pads 
Vintage-y decorated tshirts, size L (I like the longer styles of tshirts) Examples on my wists
Knit socks – any color/yarn is great!
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   
Placemats to match my kitchen would be great! 
Monster hat for my munchkin
Laundry apron to hold the clothespins while I hang the laundry on the line
Yummy handspun yarn goodness
Penguin, owl, cat, or octopus amigurumi or stuffy, or any kind, really thanks everyone!  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!
Handthrown/handpainted pottery – a tea pot or cup/saucer set 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
Hooded scarf - knitted, this pattern http://wists.com/musicalmama/a9c6576c627a40e4a0f6347b0d987717?offset=0

Supplies:


**Snap pliers for resin/plastic snaps
Resin/plastic snaps (mostly white, but other colors are good)
Hand painted wool yarn
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!)

Handspun yarn goodness
Natural fiber yarn (wool, alpaca, cotton, bamboo, etc)
Needle felting kit – I would love to learn this!

I claim missmuffcake for a bag inspired by her wists

This is my 1st claim this round, 0 sent, 0 recieved

My name is Melanie.  I am a 27 year old SAHM of 3 children so clutter comes with the territory.  I prefer to receive things that have a use over purely decorative things.  Items to help with organization are always welcome!   I love reading, sewing, and crafting.  I live on a farm in Iowa.   I have 2 cats who think they own the place and my husband has a few hundred fish (he breeds them and sells them).  I love traveling, but hate the driving involved.  If you are crafting for me or my family, please keep items G-rated….no scary skulls, profanity, or other potentially offensive items.  We are a smoke free family, and prefer to not receive items from a smoking home (smokey smells give me breathing troubles).  There are no other allergy issues. 


Crafts- I have these listed in order of most wanted..

*6 Placemats for my diningroom like these http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/c1d736178cb03dc3f1cebdbe5f26dcdf?offset=80

*table runner type thing that I will use for the top of my craft cabinet…size preference is 18 inches x 4 ft. No dangles though, the cats will attack them! Lol.  This is in my dining room so chocolate colors would be good.

*stenciled t-shirts… please no iron ons..keep them G-rated as I have small kiddos.  Some theme ideas.. Love House MD, NCIS, CSI, SURVIVOR, BECOMING JANE, PRIDE & PREJUDICE, Pirates of the Caribbean, and craftster themed stuff  Oh… I wear a size small.  Please no neons.

*scarf like this one http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/be1f456f3be8868544ef42fe4d945f4e?offset=20

*bedside organizer like this one http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/6da9f208c8a4679512550e2dd1a4ee9b?offset=20

*Some sort of organizer that attaches to the back of a car seat to hold coloring books, crayons, pencils etc, for our summer vacation trips

*I love jewelry, dangly earrings, necklaces on the smaller length side (18 inches is perfect) , bracelets (6.5 inches)… like these
http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/39fe3342f03cd86882e193a738d8fe28?offset=40
http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/3c62ee3941ffddb96ce97ed62c86d304?offset=40
http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/b9cde11ffe01335bdcf84416e56b4b0b?offset=60
http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/978d2b1caecda83132e45b872095cf11?offset=60

*resin jewelry –check out my wists for some ideas…don’t have to be exactly like what is pictured there.  I really love the goldfish bowl themed one.

*A combination crochet hook and knitting needle roll

*anything from my wists  www.wists.com/stitch81

*reusable shopping bags that are patterned after the plastic ones. 

*knitted or crocheted socks, preferably charcoal,oatmeal, black, burgundy or hunter green colors.  Wear a size 9 US.  Would love them to come to mid-calf length.


Craft Supplies

*zippers black or white 8 or 14 inches long. (not the invisible kind, and not the chunky kind..just the regular ones)

*small game type pieces for some I-Spy bags that I want to make…there is an example in my wist

*elastic-the thinner width kind

*resin molds-, the bangle bracelet molds.  Can’t find them where I live. 

*stuff to add to the resin…colorings, tiny bits…etc. 


Extras

*chocolate is always welcome! Lol…

*whatever you want to throw in…don’t have anything specific


If you have anything you that would love to make for me, but I don’t have it listed…feel free!  I love swapping because it gives me the opportunity to receive things that I can’t make myself, and also to enjoy the different styles of the people who are crafting for me!  All I ask is that items be kept g-rated!  Thanks! And if you are the one choosing me…Thank you sooooo much!!!

Post by: rlynn on June 02, 2009 05:52:51 PM
I claim aeronberry for a few wisty surprises.

this my first claim.  0 sent, 0 received.

My name is Robin and I live in Oregon.  I am married to Phil, a fantastic cook who spoils me with delicious meals.  We have a one year old daughter named Aria who is the most rambunctious and curious little child that I know.  I am a feminist who is trying to raise my daughter to be anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobic…anything (surprises are nice) that supports these ideas will be greatly loved.

I am a wee bit eccentric when it comes to my likes and dislikes.  I am all over the board, I like whimsical, edgy, bohemian, steampunk, pretty, bold, soft, hard…I wear a lot of black and grey, but I’ve been cautiously branching out into the wondrous color wheel lately.  Heh.  I love fun color combinations like orange and turquoise.  I do not like neon or Easter egg pastel colors.  I prefer rich, deep jewel tones the best.  I like images of dandelions, squirrels, birds, leaves, and trees, but I also really like skulls (not cutesy ones just plain ole skulls or even a tad more colorful like the skulls of Día de los Muertos), anatomy, skeletons (especially of birds and other non-human creatures), and old locomotives.  You can check out my wist to get a better idea of what I like. 

Some of my wishes (BIG wishes in bold)…Wisty surprises are absolutely welcome!!!

CRAFTS

Knitted crafts

*knitted handwarmers (no idea what measurements are needed here…PM me…I do have fairly small hands though for my height, wrist size 6 inches)

*Cute knitted, felted, or amigurumi toys for Aria (we like odd toys best, she has a collection of odd stuffed animals)

*crocheted play food (she has carrots, a pear, and strawberries already courtesy of Teaching Jonah)

Sewn crafts

*a cute pin cushion

*a cute thread catcher

*a wristlet in pretty but durable fabric (*sigh* I need something to hold my wallet, keys, phone, and lip gloss…I’m tired of using whatever plastic grocery bag I can find)

*lounge pants in cotton or fleece (size M 8-10, I wear M in Target brands if that helps)

*hoodie for me in size M/L with cool appliqué or screen print…I have a thing about red hoodies...just saying.  (I like my hoodie to fit loose so probably best to stay away from the juniors aisle, I have been blessed with ample hips, breasts, and tummy all courtesy of genes and motherhood)

*felt food for Aria like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=222947.0 (she has eggs and a few cookies already courtesy of TeachingJonah)

*appliquéd or screen printed tees, tunics, or dresses for Aria (she weighs about 23 lbs and is 30 inches tall so maybe 18 month, maybe 24 months if you want to give her something to grow into)

*Dolls for Aria (We would love dolls from various ethnic backgrounds…African American, Asian, Latino, etc…the world is a colorful place so should her play world be…We received a lovely African American doll from TeachingJonah in COWS, Aria LOVES the dolly!)

*Stuffies (again, we like odd, whimsical, fun...and most of all cuddly!)

*Hooded baby/toddler towels

*Embellished bath towels

Misc or multi-media crafts

*jewelry that is edgy (I love the look of steampunk) like this http://images.etsy.com/all_images/0/0a1/fbd/il_fullxfull.19832902.jpg or bohemian like this http://www.shreejigems.com/full-images/676417.jpg.  (Oh I am not fond of chokers…I hate the feeling…I would probably be fine though it if it’s made entirely of fabric and has give)

*I also love wide cuffs (leather or metal or even fabric) like this http://www.handmadefinds.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/cuff.jpg or this http://www.timelyjewels.com/cb140full.JPG or this http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2091/1517196417_30011118ed.jpg

*Vinyl in a variety of colors, scraps and strips are fine as long as they’re not teeny tiny

Thank you!!!

I claim atsuko for a stenciled size 8 tee.

this my second claim, 0 sent, 0 received. 

My name is Robin and I live in Oregon.  I am married to Phil, a fantastic cook who spoils me with delicious meals.  We have a one year old daughter named Aria who is the most rambunctious and curious little child that I know.  I am a feminist who is trying to raise my daughter to be anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobic…anything (surprises are nice) that supports these ideas will be greatly loved.

I am a wee bit eccentric when it comes to my likes and dislikes.  I am all over the board, I like whimsical, edgy, bohemian, steampunk, pretty, bold, soft, hard…I wear a lot of black and grey, but I’ve been cautiously branching out into the wondrous color wheel lately.  Heh.  I love fun color combinations like orange and turquoise.  I do not like neon or Easter egg pastel colors.  I prefer rich, deep jewel tones the best.  I like images of dandelions, squirrels, birds, leaves, and trees, but I also really like skulls (not cutesy ones just plain ole skulls or even a tad more colorful like the skulls of Día de los Muertos), anatomy, skeletons (especially of birds and other non-human creatures), and old locomotives.  You can check out my wist to get a better idea of what I like.

Some of my wishes (BIG wishes in bold)…Wisty surprises are absolutely welcome!!!

CRAFTS

Knitted crafts

*knitted handwarmers (no idea what measurements are needed here…PM me…I do have fairly small hands though for my height, wrist size 6 inches)

*Cute knitted, felted, or amigurumi toys for Aria (we like odd toys best, she has a collection of odd stuffed animals)

*crocheted play food (she has carrots, a pear, and strawberries already courtesy of Teaching Jonah)

Sewn crafts

*a cute pin cushion

*a cute thread catcher

*a wristlet in pretty but durable fabric (*sigh* I need something to hold my wallet, keys, phone, and lip gloss…I’m tired of using whatever plastic grocery bag I can find)

*lounge pants in cotton or fleece (size M 8-10, I wear M in Target brands if that helps)

*hoodie for me in size M/L with cool appliqué or screen print…I have a thing about red hoodies...just saying.  (I like my hoodie to fit loose so probably best to stay away from the juniors aisle, I have been blessed with ample hips, breasts, and tummy all courtesy of genes and motherhood)

*felt food for Aria like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=222947.0 (she has eggs and a few cookies already courtesy of TeachingJonah)

*appliquéd or screen printed tees, tunics, or dresses for Aria (she weighs about 23 lbs and is 30 inches tall so maybe 18 month, maybe 24 months if you want to give her something to grow into)

*Dolls for Aria (We would love dolls from various ethnic backgrounds…African American, Asian, Latino, etc…the world is a colorful place so should her play world be…We received a lovely African American doll from TeachingJonah in COWS, Aria LOVES the dolly!)

*Stuffies (again, we like odd, whimsical, fun...and most of all cuddly!)

*Hooded baby/toddler towels

*Embellished bath towels

Misc or multi-media crafts

*jewelry that is edgy (I love the look of steampunk) like this http://images.etsy.com/all_images/0/0a1/fbd/il_fullxfull.19832902.jpg or bohemian like this http://www.shreejigems.com/full-images/676417.jpg.  (Oh I am not fond of chokers…I hate the feeling…I would probably be fine though it if it’s made entirely of fabric and has give)  Thanks Atsuko!

*I also love wide cuffs (leather or metal or even fabric) like this http://www.handmadefinds.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/cuff.jpg or this http://www.timelyjewels.com/cb140full.JPG or this http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2091/1517196417_30011118ed.jpg

About me:

My name is Leigh-Ann, and I’m a 23 year old single mommy to my very sweet and wonderful 22 month old son, Levi.  We live in Florida with my family and dog and love anything to do with the beach.  We try hard to live a ‘green’ lifestyle.

Likes: bright colors,  ocean colors, anything to do with the beach, ocean, dolphins, sea turtles etc.  Things that smell yummy.  Environmentally friendly stuff.  (I don’t mind recycled stuff, esp for supplies!)  Anything for my toddler.  

Dislikes: Anything that isn’t vegetarian.  Anything that smells um ‘like my grandma’.  Pastel colors.  Anything that a toddler will ruin.  Not a fan of plastic stuff either

Crafted things:

Bath fizzys, wax tarts for tart warmer, anything to make my room smell nice, lip balm, body spray – anything that smells good!  I like food smells, fruit smells (except for strawberry and watermelon), anything tropical or ‘clean’ smelling.

Storage things – anything to help organize my craft room or my son’s ‘stuff’, something to keep cloth wipes in that fits on the back of the toilet
Something to keep the sewing machine from sliding all over the table

Clothes for me – would love some summer tops, dresses, skirts, embellished t-shirts, pjs – whatever!  I wear an XS, S or 0-3.

Velour and flannel or terry and flannel cloth wipes, and set of snapping unpaper towels

Fun tote bag with pockets inside

Crochet ‘net’ sort of bag to hold bath toys (or anything to hold bath toys ?)

Mama cloth, light or regular, needs to be not huge and bulky because I'm tiny.  Prefer hidden PUL, dark colors.  

Wooden or natural or just handmade toys for a toddler, especially anything educational to help him learn colors, numbers, shapes, letters, or whatever.
Hooded beach towel
Raincoat or poncho for a toddler

Supplies:
Children’s sewing patterns, newborn on up, especially toddler boys patterns  ( REALLY need a button up shirt pattern for Levi!)

Starter kits for making any type of craft – I would love to try needle felting, paper making, soap making, candle making,  batik, tye-dye, etc.

Solid colored clothing, all sizes, newborn through adult, any colour but I really need dark colors.  Used but in good condition is just fine!

Iron on transfer paper
Printable fabric
Clear contact paper

Elastic thread
Variegated thread
Any thread actually!

Small notions for making busy books

Sharp sewing scissors – smallish ones
Snaps that you put on with a hammer

That buckwheat stuff you put in hot/cold packs

Designer fabric, even little scraps are fine!  
Jersey knit fabric, or similar, I’m making underwear for my son.  
PUL
Micro fiber terry
Any unique fabrics, even small amounts
Bottom weight fabrics
Grippy fabric for the bottoms of shoes
Anything kid friendly
Whatever that fabric is that boys swim/board shorts are made of

Also anything on my wisits: http://www.wists.com/leighi123

Post by: stitch81 on June 03, 2009 07:21:02 PM
I claim leighi123 for a stenciled shirt (maybe 2 depending on how involved it is)

This is my 2nd claim this round, 0 sent, 0 recieved

My name is Melanie.  I am a 27 year old SAHM of 3 children so clutter comes with the territory.  I prefer to receive things that have a use over purely decorative things.  Items to help with organization are always welcome!   I love reading, sewing, and crafting.  I live on a farm in Iowa.   I have 2 cats who think they own the place and my husband has a few hundred fish (he breeds them and sells them).  I love traveling, but hate the driving involved.  If you are crafting for me or my family, please keep items G-rated….no scary skulls, profanity, or other potentially offensive items.  We are a smoke free family, and prefer to not receive items from a smoking home (smokey smells give me breathing troubles).  There are no other allergy issues. 

Crafts- I have these listed in order of most wanted..

*6 Placemats for my diningroom like these http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/c1d736178cb03dc3f1cebdbe5f26dcdf?offset=80

*table runner type thing that I will use for the top of my craft cabinet…size preference is 18 inches x 4 ft. No dangles though, the cats will attack them! Lol.  This is in my dining room so chocolate colors would be good.

*stenciled t-shirts… please no iron ons..keep them G-rated as I have small kiddos.  Some theme ideas.. Love House MD, NCIS, CSI, SURVIVOR, BECOMING JANE, PRIDE & PREJUDICE, Pirates of the Caribbean, and craftster themed stuff  Oh… I wear a size small.  Please no neons.  Check my wists for other ideas

*scarf like this one http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/be1f456f3be8868544ef42fe4d945f4e?offset=20

*bedside organizer like this one http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/6da9f208c8a4679512550e2dd1a4ee9b?offset=20

*Some sort of organizer that attaches to the back of a car seat to hold coloring books, crayons, pencils etc, for our summer vacation trips

*I love jewelry, dangly earrings, necklaces on the smaller length side (18 inches is perfect) , bracelets (6.5 inches)… like these
http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/39fe3342f03cd86882e193a738d8fe28?offset=40
http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/3c62ee3941ffddb96ce97ed62c86d304?offset=40

http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/978d2b1caecda83132e45b872095cf11?offset=60

*resin jewelry –check out my wists for some ideas…don’t have to be exactly like what is pictured there.  I really love the goldfish bowl themed one.

*anything from my wists  www.wists.com/stitch81

*reusable shopping bags that are patterned after the plastic ones. 

*infinity dress in some summery type pattern/color (pm me for size)

*knitted or crocheted socks, preferably charcoal,oatmeal, black, burgundy or hunter green colors.  Wear a size 9 US.  Would love them to come to mid-calf length.


Craft Supplies - again, most wished for are listed first

*Supplies for making tree of life pendants, especially the outer wire.

*recent summer dress patterns for around a size women's 6.  see my wists for style preferences

*jersey material for making some dresses, 3 yard minimum please

*would love a glass etching kit, or some supplies to get me started

*zippers black or white 8 or 14 inches long. (not the invisible kind, and not the chunky kind..just the regular ones)

*small game type pieces for some I-Spy bags that I want to make…there is an example in my wist

*elastic-the thinner width kind

*resin molds-, the bangle bracelet molds.  Can’t find them where I live. 

*stuff to add to the resin…colorings, tiny bits…etc. 


Extras

*Love chocolate, mint, and peanutbutter candies (not all those together)

*whatever you want to throw in…don’t have anything specific


If you have anything you that would love to make for me, but I don’t have it listed…feel free!  I love swapping because it gives me the opportunity to receive things that I can’t make myself, and also to enjoy the different styles of the people who are crafting for me!  All I ask is that items be kept g-rated!  Thanks! And if you are the one choosing me…Thank you sooooo much!!!

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.

I claim A2K for a swirl pendant and potholders.

This is my first claim this round :)

I am 26 years old and I am sahm to my 20 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
* 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.
* Funky Apron  in a style like this, the colours and style are great! - PM me for sizing  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 * Nightgown in one of these styles: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25691497&ref=sr_gallery_7&&ga_search_query=nightgown&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=13&order=price_desc&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title or this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=19063921&ref=sr_gallery_19&&ga_search_query=nightgown&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=14&order=price_desc&includes - PM me for sizing and colour preferences
*Paintbrush Roll Similar to a needle or hook roll but I’d like it to have interfacing to protect the bristles from bending. Needs to be larger like this one. I like this mishmash of fabric/colour choices and double-pockets. Not fond of the button closure though, ties would be better. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23670127
*Pencil Case like this one to keep my sketching supplies safe in my purse. Can also be made with fabric and pvc. Doesn’t have to be paper as long as inside and outside is covered with protective pvc.  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23878727&ref=sr_gallery_1&&ga_search_query=pencil+case+travel&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=2&order=price_desc&includes
* Stiff fabric baskets to be used for storage. I love the ones where you can fold the cuff up or down to make them shorter or taller. I’d prefer them to be rectangular.

I claim redstar13 for some scrabble pillows from her wists

This is my 3rd claim this round, 1 sent, 0 recieved

My name is Melanie.  I am a 27 year old SAHM of 3 children so clutter comes with the territory.  I prefer to receive things that have a use over purely decorative things.  Items to help with organization are always welcome!   I love reading, sewing, and crafting.  I live on a farm in Iowa.   I have 2 cats who think they own the place and my husband has a few hundred fish (he breeds them and sells them).  I love traveling, but hate the driving involved.  If you are crafting for me or my family, please keep items G-rated….no scary skulls, profanity, or other potentially offensive items.  We are a smoke free family, and prefer to not receive items from a smoking home (smokey smells give me breathing troubles).  There are no other allergy issues. 

Crafts- I have these listed in order of most wanted..

*6 Placemats & runner for my diningroom like these http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/c1d736178cb03dc3f1cebdbe5f26dcdf?offset=80thank you spectrumsparksie!!!!

*table runner type thing that I will use for the top of my craft cabinet…size preference is 18 inches x 4 ft. No dangles though, the cats will attack them! Lol.  This is in my dining room so chocolate colors would be good.

*stenciled t-shirts… please no iron ons..keep them G-rated as I have small kiddos.  Some theme ideas.. Love House MD, NCIS, CSI, SURVIVOR, BECOMING JANE, PRIDE & PREJUDICE, Pirates of the Caribbean, and craftster themed stuff  Oh… I wear a size small.  Please no neons.  Check my wists for other ideas

*scarf like this one http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/be1f456f3be8868544ef42fe4d945f4e?offset=20

*bedside organizer like this one http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/6da9f208c8a4679512550e2dd1a4ee9b?offset=20

*Some sort of organizer that attaches to the back of a car seat to hold coloring books, crayons, pencils etc, for our summer vacation trips

*I love jewelry, dangly earrings, necklaces on the smaller length side (18 inches is perfect) , bracelets (6.5 inches)… like these
http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/39fe3342f03cd86882e193a738d8fe28?offset=40

*infinity dress in some summery type pattern/color (pm me for size)

*jersey material for making some dresses, 3 yard minimum please

*would love a glass etching kit, or some supplies to get me started

*zippers black or white 8 or 14 inches long. (not the invisible kind, and not the chunky kind..just the regular ones)

*small game type pieces for some I-Spy bags that I want to make…there is an example in my wist

*elastic-the thinner width kind

*resin molds-, the bangle bracelet molds.  Can’t find them where I live. 

*stuff to add to the resin…colorings, tiny bits…etc. 


Extras

*Love chocolate, mint, and peanutbutter candies (not all those together)

*whatever you want to throw in…don’t have anything specific


If you have anything you that would love to make for me, but I don’t have it listed…feel free!  I love swapping because it gives me the opportunity to receive things that I can’t make myself, and also to enjoy the different styles of the people who are crafting for me!  All I ask is that items be kept g-rated!  Thanks! And if you are the one choosing me…Thank you sooooo much!!!


Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 47
Post by: gavagai on June 04, 2009 01:11:24 PM
Yes! I get to claim stitch81 for a stencilled t-shirt and maybe something more.

This is my first claim!

I live in Sweden with my SO and our 15 months old little baby.  :) We are both part time stay at home parents and have been since Mika was born (except for the first three months when I studied full time and Mika was home with daddy full time). I am a senior high school teacher (is that correct? teaching 16-19 year olds) of Swedish, Philosophy and Psychology. For the last year however, I have been working with an integration project, bringing immigrants and native Swedish people together. I also teach craft classes in the evenings. Lots of prejects going on.  :D

And now for my list  :)


Crafted things

Baby sling/carrier/meitai
I know this is a lot to ask for, but if someone wants to make me a non-elastic baby sling I would absolutely love you! Maybe something like the Storchen wiege (http://www.storchenwiege.com/). A non-elastic sling should preferably be woven diagonally (i.e. the fabric you use should be, look at the close-ups on the Storchenwiege site), but maybe it works with other fabrics as well. Other kinds of ergonomical carriers would also be great, like a meitai maybe (www.meitaibaby.com). Not a ring sling though, since they would probably kill my back. I need something with the weight well distributed over shoulders, hips et.c.

Tea bag plates
Small plates to put used tea bags on. Something that works like these, but maybe another design. I like stylish/funky/cleancut... http://www.desina.se/index.asp?contentpage=products&kategoriid=18 It would be great if they could work as a decoration on the table when not used, maybe stackable ones?

Granny square(?) shawl
A shawl made out of multi-coloured crocheted flowers (is there a name for it? is it even flowers? you know those colourful round (or squarish) things put together)

Funny amigurumis, maybe a lemming?
Cute/strange amigurumis. I like unusual looking ones. Oh, and I am especially looking for a crocheted Scandinavian lemming. That would be just awesome!   (You should be able to get a picture of the Scandinavian lemming if you google it, otherwise I can try to find one.)  ;D

SAHD stuff for my boyfriend
I guess I have made it pretty clear now that we have a little baby!  ;)  My boyfriend has been a stay at home dad and will continue to be so (at least part time, since i would kind of like to spend some time with little Mika as well  :D), and it would be fun with some accessories (t-shirt? diaper bag?...) that just says SAHD or something like that in one way or another.

Funky baby clothes[/s][/b]
Fun, funky (or maybe liberal, feminist, sarcastic...) baby clothes fitting a 15 months old or bigger. We're not into gender stereotyping, so any colours are o.k. Something knitted would be really cool! but anything goes: appliques, fabric painted, crocheted...

Woodland creatures to live in Christmas tree
Felt creatures for my Chrismas tree. We have this white plastic Christmas tree, that is really quite good looking, kind of magical with lights shining. I discovered that it looks even more magical if I let little creatures live on the branches, so for next Christmas I will need more woodland creatures, monsters or something like that to inhabit it. Felt looks good. I guess they could be crocheted as well, little amigurumis. Size maybe somewhere between 1.5" and 3.5". Some creatures to inspire you: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fantastictoys/sets/1630769/ but feel free to use your imagination.  

Anything from my wist
And of course anything else from or inspired by my evergrowing wist.
http://www.wists.com/gavagai


Kits (does this go under supplies?)

A soap making kit! (never tried before)

Resin kit! (never tried before)

Quilling paper kit

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



Supplies

Bathing suit fabric/pattern/old pictures
Bathing suit fabric and/or pictures/patterns of old bathing suits (think the twenties-thirties). I am thinking of sewing a bathing suit for little Mika, modelled after an old bathing suit. I'd like something with bloomers like legs, maybe in white and/or navy blue or striped (any colours), but colourful patterns (like flowers or something) would also look nice. I am doing this just for fun. She likes to bathe in the nude anyway.  :D I just took tailoring classes, so I should be able to sew it as long as I have pictures and fabrics. A pattern for any sizes to adapt to her size would also be nice. Maybe I could crochet one as well come to think of it, but then the pattern would have to be made for a baby, since I am no good at adapting crochet patterns.  :)

hole puncher
Something to punch holes in shrink plastic, preferably with different sizes and not too poor quality. I used to have one that could barely make holes, and you had to trim the holes afterwords with scissors.

Lightscribe cds/dvds
Lightscribe cds/dvds for me to lightscribe on. Would love different colours! Can't get the different coloured ones here.  

Cotton fabric with "frames" on
I am looking for fabric that consists of "frames" of some sort with a white inside. Ideal would be images of empty photo frames (if anyone has seen such a fabric, PLEASE tell me where  ), but otherwise maybe just white squares with a border of some other colour around it. I would like to use it to iron-on images in the white sqare and get the effect that the image is framed.

Thin silver (plated) wire
Silver or silver plated/gold plated wire, thinner than 0.4 mm (maybe someone can translate this into American standard?)

Joints for teddybears
Joints for making dolls/teddybears, to fasten arms and legs to make them movable (preferably not too big)

Square bails for making pendants
Flat metal things with a loop (preferably silver/gold or silver/gold plated) to fasten on the back of for example a marble to make it into a pendant. Something like this: https://www.rings-things.com/cgi-bin/hazel/hazel.cgi?action=detail&item=49-455-3  Ideally either 10mm or 20mm square, but also interested in other sizes.

Chunky fun yarn
Chunky fun yarn. Ssomething that looks a bit different in one way or another.

Hairdressing and/or crafting/sewing themed metal charms
Hairdressing and/or crafting/sewing themed metal charms (like scissors or something, to be used for making jewelry).

Gold plated chain
Gold plated chain to make necklaces and other jewelry.

Silver plated finger rings
Silver plated finger rings with a large plate (1.5-2 cm?) with sides/borders (will try to find a link to make it less confusing) for crafting jewelry.

Glass thingies/plates for making jewelry
Glass thingies, especially ones with holes in them:
http://www.wholesalersusainc.com/hand-glass-shapes-rectangles-holes-40pcs-p-1325.html
Other glass shapes on the same site are also as interesting, and coloured square marbles also... Just different shaped glass thingies to put pictures behind really... and/or coloured ones for rings:
http://www.plainmabel.com/ckshop.php?item=1168&ret=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.plainmabel.com%2Fckshop.php%3Fpage%3D1%26category%3D4
(I already have enough of the "normal" round transparent ones (that you can buy in flower shops (at least here) though.)

Snap buttons
Snap buttons of good quality, small ones for making baby clothes, preferably ones that you "punch" on (rather than sew or fold those little metal clips thingies) (plastic and/or metal)

Craft books & magazines

Book with fun/cute Japanese sewing and/or crochet patterns (when it comes to books it might be a good idea to ask if I already have the book before claiming; will try to list  the books I have soon)

Crochet books or magazines with fun new projects (not too traditional stuff). I like "Crochet today". I only have the september-october 2007 issue so far. Please ask me before you send a crochet book, since I have a few (not many) already and might have the one you want to send. (Will try to list the ones I already have soon.)

MAKE: technology on your time (The only one I already have is volume 8)

CRAFT: transforming traditional crafts (I have a couple of these, will list soon)

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


Extras

Please take a look at my supplies list. There are quite a few things there that could count as extras, depending on the amount. Would be happy for anything.  :D


Please no food/candy! and I'm not too keen on batiks


:-* AND THANK YOU SO MUCH TO WHOEVER PICKS ME  :-*

Post by: rlynn on June 05, 2009 07:20:59 PM
I claim gavagai for a book from her wist.

this my third claim, 0 sent, 0 received.  

My name is Robin and I live in Oregon.  I am married to Phil, a fantastic cook who spoils me with delicious meals.  We have a one year old daughter named Aria who is the most rambunctious and curious little child that I know.  I am a feminist who is trying to raise my daughter to be anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobic…anything (surprises are nice) that supports these ideas will be greatly loved.

I am a wee bit eccentric when it comes to my likes and dislikes.  I am all over the board, I like whimsical, edgy, bohemian, steampunk, pretty, bold, soft, hard…I wear a lot of black and grey, but I’ve been cautiously branching out into the wondrous color wheel lately.  Heh.  I love fun color combinations like orange and turquoise.  I do not like neon or Easter egg pastel colors.  I prefer rich, deep jewel tones the best.  I like images of dandelions, squirrels, birds, leaves, and trees, but I also really like skulls (not cutesy ones just plain ole skulls or even a tad more colorful like the skulls of Día de los Muertos), anatomy, skeletons (especially of birds and other non-human creatures), and old locomotives.  You can check out my wist to get a better idea of what I like.

Some of my wishes (BIG wishes in bold)…Wisty surprises are absolutely welcome!!!

CRAFTS

Knitted crafts

*knitted handwarmers (no idea what measurements are needed here…PM me…I do have fairly small hands though for my height, wrist size 6 inches)

*Cute knitted, felted, or amigurumi toys for Aria (we like odd toys best, she has a collection of odd stuffed animals)

*crocheted play food (she has carrots, a pear, and strawberries already courtesy of Teaching Jonah) -Thank you leighi123 (for this or felt food)

Sewn crafts

*a cute pin cushion

*a cute thread catcher

*a wristlet in pretty but durable fabric (*sigh* I need something to hold my wallet, keys, phone, and lip gloss…I’m tired of using whatever plastic grocery bag I can find)

*lounge pants in cotton or fleece (size M 8-10, I wear M in Target brands if that helps)

*hoodie for me in size M/L with cool appliqué or screen print…I have a thing about red hoodies...just saying.  (I like my hoodie to fit loose so probably best to stay away from the juniors aisle, I have been blessed with ample hips, breasts, and tummy all courtesy of genes and motherhood)

*felt food for Aria like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=222947.0 (she has eggs and a few cookies already courtesy of TeachingJonah)

*appliquéd or screen printed tees, tunics, or dresses for Aria (she weighs about 23 lbs and is 30 inches tall so maybe 18 month, maybe 24 months if you want to give her something to grow into)

*Dolls for Aria (We would love dolls from various ethnic backgrounds…African American, Asian, Latino, etc…the world is a colorful place so should her play world be…We received a lovely African American doll from TeachingJonah in COWS, Aria LOVES the dolly!)

*Stuffies (again, we like odd, whimsical, fun...and most of all cuddly!)

*Hooded baby/toddler towels

*Embellished bath towels

Misc or multi-media crafts

*jewelry that is edgy (I love the look of steampunk) like this http://images.etsy.com/all_images/0/0a1/fbd/il_fullxfull.19832902.jpg or bohemian like this http://www.shreejigems.com/full-images/676417.jpg.  (Oh I am not fond of chokers…I hate the feeling…I would probably be fine though it if it’s made entirely of fabric and has give)  Thanks Atsuko!

*I also love wide cuffs (leather or metal or even fabric) like this http://www.handmadefinds.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/cuff.jpg or this http://www.timelyjewels.com/cb140full.JPG or this http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2091/1517196417_30011118ed.jpg
(I could do without the spider web; I think this would look cute in jewel tone colors in a pretty print or even black with a skull; also I love all metals especially when its looks worn and old; wrist size is 6 inches)

*Candles, LOVE vanilla and baked goodies smells, also love lavender and lemongrass, the only smells not overly fond of are patchouli and super strong flowery scents.

*neat-o decorated coffee mugs, either hand sculpted or a plain ones embellished with one of those pens like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=284893.0;topicseen but maybe with more whimsical designs like birds, trees, dandelions and whatnot (I have only three coffee mugs at home…2 of which have chips in them…so sad)

*Pretty smelling soap (see above under candles for scent preferences)

*Artwork for my home (trees, birds, dandelions, interesting, not of this world landscapes, my daughter…these are all good subjects, PM if you want a photo of my daughter or see my profile for her totsites.com page…tons of photos there.)

*An accordion file organizer (you know like the cardboard kinds) decorated all pretty and awaiting my many and disorganized patterns that are laying about the house

SUPPLIES
(PsSt...I don’t mind used supplies in the least as long as there is enough to still play around with and have a bit of fun!)

*Vinyl in a variety of colors, scraps and strips are fine as long as they’re not teeny tiny

*Bright and colorful buttons (mostly round but a few fun shapes are great too, don’t have to be matching)

*ultra-fine, fine, and thick sharpies in black and fun colors

*Old skeleton keys, small interesting metal gears and doodads

*jewelry findings in gunmetal, brass, and copper (chains and clasps especially!!)

*100% white cotton (at least 8 by 10)

*Cold water dyes in variety of colors (brand doesn’t matter)

*Blocks of Beeswax and Paraffin waxes

EXTRAS

*old maps especially of cities outside USA
*transportation tickets, tokens, what have you especially if from cities outside USA
*Tea
*Candy or food (that travels well) unique to your region (I’m fairly adventurous)

Thank you!!!

I claim rlynn for various wisty surprises because she has a Eugene V. Debs quote in her signature.  AWESOME! 

This is my 1st claim, 0 sent, 0 in transit, 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).  I'm also wearing a lot of orange this season--bright, clear oranges (more red than yellow). 

Here's my wishlist.  Thank you!

ABOUT ME

Hi there! I love feltmaking and papercrafts, and love taking part in swaps.

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

I would describe my style as "eco chic". I love organic and eco-friendly products, and prefer natural fibres and fabrics to synthetic ones. I  love vintage fabric - and particularly adore vintage florals (pre 1970), cotton velvet and vintage brocade/damask. I also like modern baroque/rococo style 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. I also like beige and chocolate brown.  No neons or black please, and I'm not too keen on yellow, orange, navy. peach or mint green.

Please see my profile and wists for more info about me.

CRAFTED ITEMS

SEWN

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.

Sewing machine bag
I would love a bag for my vintage 1978 Bernina (its original bag died long ago). It would be great if it had a zip at the top and handles so I can carry it around places. Some pockets (inside and/or outside) for thread, bobbins etc would also be great. Please PM me for measurements - the machine is currently being serviced but should be back soon.

CROCHETED

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

Crocheted cotton market/shopping bag
I would love 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.

Crochet cotton flower earrings
See my colour preferences above and my wists for examples. Please use sterling silver earring wires as my ears are allergic to nickel.

Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 47
Post by: gavagai on June 06, 2009 01:43:03 AM
I claim Velvet Rose for drawstring bag/s and maybe a surprise or two. It doesn't matter to me where you live, since I am always sending international anyway (no, actually once (in like 200 total sendings) I got to send within Sweden).  :D


This is my second claim, none sent!

I live in Sweden with my SO and our 15 months old little baby.  :) We are both part time stay at home parents and have been since Mika was born (except for the first three months when I studied full time and Mika was home with daddy full time). I am a senior high school teacher (is that correct? teaching 16-19 year olds) of Swedish, Philosophy and Psychology. For the last year however, I have been working with an integration project, bringing immigrants and native Swedish people together. I also teach craft classes in the evenings. Lots of projects going on.  :D

And now for my list  :)[/b
If you want to send me a book from my wist, please ask rlynn first which book she is planning on sending me.


Crafted things

Baby sling/carrier/meitai
I know this is a lot to ask for, but if someone wants to make me a non-elastic baby sling I would absolutely love you! Maybe something like the Storchen wiege (http://www.storchenwiege.com/). A non-elastic sling should preferably be woven diagonally (i.e. the fabric you use should be, look at the close-ups on the Storchenwiege site), but maybe it works with other fabrics as well. Other kinds of ergonomical carriers would also be great, like a meitai maybe (www.meitaibaby.com). Not a ring sling though, since they would probably kill my back. I need something with the weight well distributed over shoulders, hips et.c.

Tea bag plates
Small plates to put used tea bags on. Something that works like these, but maybe another design. I like stylish/funky/cleancut... http://www.desina.se/index.asp?contentpage=products&kategoriid=18 It would be great if they could work as a decoration on the table when not used, maybe stackable ones?

Granny square(?) shawl
A shawl made out of multi-coloured crocheted flowers (is there a name for it? is it even flowers? you know those colourful round (or squarish) things put together)

Funny amigurumis, maybe a lemming?
Cute/strange amigurumis. I like unusual looking ones. Oh, and I am especially looking for a crocheted Scandinavian lemming. That would be just awesome!   (You should be able to get a picture of the Scandinavian lemming if you google it, otherwise I can try to find one.)  ;D

SAHD stuff for my boyfriend
I guess I have made it pretty clear now that we have a little baby!  ;)  My boyfriend has been a stay at home dad and will continue to be so (at least part time, since i would kind of like to spend some time with little Mika as well  :D), and it would be fun with some accessories (t-shirt? diaper bag?...) that just says SAHD or something like that in one way or another.

Funky baby clothes[/s]
[/b]
Fun, funky (or maybe liberal, feminist, sarcastic...) baby clothes fitting a 15 months old or bigger. We're not into gender stereotyping, so any colours are o.k. Something knitted would be really cool! but anything goes: appliques, fabric painted, crocheted...

Woodland creatures to live in Christmas tree
Felt creatures for my Chrismas tree. We have this white plastic Christmas tree, that is really quite good looking, kind of magical with lights shining. I discovered that it looks even more magical if I let little creatures live on the branches, so for next Christmas I will need more woodland creatures, monsters or something like that to inhabit it. Felt looks good. I guess they could be crocheted as well, little amigurumis. Size maybe somewhere between 1.5" and 3.5". Some creatures to inspire you: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fantastictoys/sets/1630769/ but feel free to use your imagination.  

Anything from my wist
And of course anything else from or inspired by my evergrowing wist.
http://www.wists.com/gavagai


Kits (does this go under supplies?)

A soap making kit! (never tried before)

Resin kit! (never tried before)

Quilling paper kit

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



Supplies

Bathing suit fabric/pattern/old pictures
Bathing suit fabric and/or pictures/patterns of old bathing suits (think the twenties-thirties). I am thinking of sewing a bathing suit for little Mika, modelled after an old bathing suit. I'd like something with bloomers like legs, maybe in white and/or navy blue or striped (any colours), but colourful patterns (like flowers or something) would also look nice. I am doing this just for fun. She likes to bathe in the nude anyway.  :D I just took tailoring classes, so I should be able to sew it as long as I have pictures and fabrics. A pattern for any sizes to adapt to her size would also be nice. Maybe I could crochet one as well come to think of it, but then the pattern would have to be made for a baby, since I am no good at adapting crochet patterns.  :)

hole puncher
Something to punch holes in shrink plastic, preferably with different sizes and not too poor quality. I used to have one that could barely make holes, and you had to trim the holes afterwords with scissors.

Lightscribe cds/dvds
Lightscribe cds/dvds for me to lightscribe on. Would love different colours! Can't get the different coloured ones here.  

Cotton fabric with "frames" on
I am looking for fabric that consists of "frames" of some sort with a white inside. Ideal would be images of empty photo frames (if anyone has seen such a fabric, PLEASE tell me where  ), but otherwise maybe just white squares with a border of some other colour around it. I would like to use it to iron-on images in the white sqare and get the effect that the image is framed.

Thin silver (plated) wire
Silver or silver plated/gold plated wire, thinner than 0.4 mm (maybe someone can translate this into American standard?)

Joints for teddybears
Joints for making dolls/teddybears, to fasten arms and legs to make them movable (preferably not too big)

Square bails for making pendants
Flat metal things with a loop (preferably silver/gold or silver/gold plated) to fasten on the back of for example a marble to make it into a pendant. Something like this: https://www.rings-things.com/cgi-bin/hazel/hazel.cgi?action=detail&item=49-455-3  Ideally either 10mm or 20mm square, but also interested in other sizes.

Chunky fun yarn
Chunky fun yarn. Ssomething that looks a bit different in one way or another.

Hairdressing and/or crafting/sewing themed metal charms
Hairdressing and/or crafting/sewing themed metal charms (like scissors or something, to be used for making jewelry).

Gold plated chain
Gold plated chain to make necklaces and other jewelry.

Silver plated finger rings
Silver plated finger rings with a large plate (1.5-2 cm?) with sides/borders (will try to find a link to make it less confusing) for crafting jewelry.

Glass thingies/plates for making jewelry
Glass thingies, especially ones with holes in them:
http://www.wholesalersusainc.com/hand-glass-shapes-rectangles-holes-40pcs-p-1325.html
Other glass shapes on the same site are also as interesting, and coloured square marbles also... Just different shaped glass thingies to put pictures behind really... and/or coloured ones for rings:
http://www.plainmabel.com/ckshop.php?item=1168&ret=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.plainmabel.com%2Fckshop.php%3Fpage%3D1%26category%3D4
(I already have enough of the "normal" round transparent ones (that you can buy in flower shops (at least here) though.)

Snap buttons
Snap buttons of good quality, small ones for making baby clothes, preferably ones that you "punch" on (rather than sew or fold those little metal clips thingies) (plastic and/or metal)

Craft books & magazines

Book with fun/cute Japanese sewing and/or crochet patterns (when it comes to books it might be a good idea to ask if I already have the book before claiming; will try to list  the books I have soon)

Crochet books or magazines with fun new projects (not too traditional stuff). I like "Crochet today". I only have the september-october 2007 issue so far. Please ask me before you send a crochet book, since I have a few (not many) already and might have the one you want to send. (Will try to list the ones I already have soon.)

MAKE: technology on your time (The only one I already have is volume 8)

CRAFT: transforming traditional crafts (I have a couple of these, will list soon)

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


Extras

Please take a look at my supplies list. There are quite a few things there that could count as extras, depending on the amount. Would be happy for anything.  :D


Please no food/candy! and I'm not too keen on batiks


:-* AND THANK YOU SO MUCH TO WHOEVER PICKS ME  :-*

I claim rangerbeth for some fruit cozies and an eye pillow.

This is my first claim for this round, so zero sent.

I am 19 and live in Virginia Beach, Virginia until fall when I go back to Fredericksburg for my second year of college. My style is pretty haphazard--I never coordinate anything, so my decorating style is whatever I like, all cobbled together. I love bold prints and art deco and fun colors, but I'm not a fan of pink or orange. I love dark colors, like maroon and navy. I knit like a fiend (almost constantly) and also crochet, sew, and dabble in paper craft and jewelry-making. I really want to learn spinning, weaving, and soapmaking, just to add to my crafty repertoire. I have cats and a dog, but they all stay out of my crafting supplies, but I don't have any allergies. PM with any questions!

Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 47
Post by: phoenixfiredesigns on June 07, 2009 08:58:43 AM
I'm going to claim ifallthraindrops for some stitch markers and a wisty surprise.

First claim this round.

About Me

Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 32 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

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 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/) (Snuggie) I almost bought an actual "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.

*big wish* -- A robe like this one (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/a3a42670262dc240c5598e8e52c486a4?offset=0). I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*new* -- A cell/ipod touch cozy/wristlet (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25437558) like this. I love the colors and the shape/size of this one.

*new* -- A little zip wallet like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303612.0).

*new* -- A Disney Pin Trading Wallet like these that MissDisney (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=299888.msg3421346#msg3421346) made. I especially like the red/yellow one since it's very Mickey colored, or other Disney printed ones. (My initial would need to be "M" though.) This would be great for carrying around my pins to trade at the parks!!

*new* -- Some Fabric buckets (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303865.0) like this or like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=307117.0) to store and tote around craft supplies.

*new* - A wallet. Something slim but with a lot of card slots and an id slot. Something in a aqua or robin's egg blue would be great to match my new purse. (Brown/aqua would be good too.) There's several examples I like here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/wallet) on my wist.

 -- 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).

Knitting

*big wish* -- This scarf in these type of earthy, natural colors (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=144573.msg1422950#msg1422950). (If it were in a mix of teal blue and chocolate brown that would work too.) 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.)


Other

*new* -- A gem tree (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302606.0) like this (or really, like any of the ones she makes because they're all lovely!)

*new* -- A gem tree in a glass ball in emerald and silver like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=17137298). Emerald is my birthstone.

*new*  -- Hand carved rubber stamps Especially cute/quirky things based on my likes/wist. I like natural things (like trees, flowers, birds, etc.) too. Really, I'm just crap at making them myself and there are so many cute ones out there.

  -- 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)

 -- 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. (I love the brown leather.)

 -- A cool fitted tee or fitted tank top 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. Some inspiration:
 - dandelion on brown with blue (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b8278a3977c184f0454e3661b44d5913?offset=0)
 - floral tank in robin's egg blue (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b43d1d191ced6ae1babfd7c537c6ecc1?offset=0)
 - birds - as fitted tee though (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_2&listing_id=24764817)
 - love the two-tone look of this one (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20840511)
 - OMG - It's a BAT!!! (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21494967)

 -- 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 amazon 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
 
*new* -- Rubber stamp pads and/or rubber stamp markers. I've gotten a pretty cool collection of stamps but I have no ink pads for them!

 -- 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 phoenixfiredesigns for a wisty surprise (yay!)

Claim #2 for me (2,0,0)

I am Nicole, 28 year old full time SAHM to my 17 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:


Handpainted wool yarn!!!!!!!  Any kind of colorway is good, but I especially like the rainbow ones.
Knitted or crocheted wool longies, shorties, or skirty for my munchkin – PM me for exact measurements, but she’s pretty much a medium
Headbands for the munchkin like these: http://www.sweetbabybowtique.com/catalog.php?category=96

Yummy handspun yarn goodness
Penguin, owl, cat, or octopus amigurumi or stuffy, or any kind, really thanks everyone!  You can never have too many stuffies!

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!thanks 1boy1girl1kitty2!
Handthrown/handpainted pottery – a tea pot or cup/saucer set 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

Resin/plastic snaps (mostly white, but other colors are good)

Vintage clothing patterns for toddler girl

I claim musiclady for a needle felting kit!

This is my 2nd claim, 0 sent, 0 in transit, 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).  I'm also wearing a lot of orange this season--bright, clear oranges (more red than yellow). 

Here's my wishlist.  Thank you!

I claim oneredboot for wool yarn scraps. This is my second claim. None sent.

ABOUT ME

Hi there! I love feltmaking and papercrafts, and am addicted to swaps.  ;)

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

I would describe my style as "eco chic". I love organic and eco-friendly products, and prefer natural fibres and fabrics to synthetic ones. I  love vintage fabric - and particularly adore vintage florals (pre 1970), cotton velvet and vintage upholstery fabrics. I also like modern baroque/rococo style 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. I also like beige and chocolate brown.  No neons or black please, and I don't like yellow, orange, navy, peach or mint green.

Please see my profile and wists for more info about me.

CRAFTED ITEMS

SEWN

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.
Thanks gavagai

Sewing machine bag
I would love a bag for my vintage 1978 Bernina (its original bag died long ago). It would be great if it had a zip at the top and strong handles so I can carry it around places. Some pockets (inside and/or outside) for thread, bobbins etc would also be great. Please PM me for measurements - the machine is currently being serviced but should be back soon.

CROCHETED

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

Crocheted cotton market/shopping bag
I would love 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.

I claim Velvet Rose for some crocheted shopping bags that fold into their own pockets!

This is my first claim this round, 0 sent, 0 received

My name is Janelle and I'm in Illinois, USA. I'm a stay-at-home mommy to two wonderful children. Izak is three, and Lailah was born this January. I am a lover of all crafts, so I'm super easy to please. My very favorite colors are chartreuse, gray, chocolate brown, deep aqua and green. I am allergic to cats, but crafts from homes that have a cat don't seem to really bother me. I'm not allergic to smoke, but I would rather things didn't smell of it. I adore octopi, keys, carrots, trees and umbrellas. Anything with any of those themes would be great. I'm always open to trying out new things, so feel free to de-stash on me if you wish. Thanks in advance for claiming me.

Crafts

Anything from my wists. http://www.wists.com/JanelleJ
A T-shirt like this https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_05902.JPG for my son in 4/5. He really likes Plex (the yellow robot), but is a huge fan on the show so he will be super happy with any of these.
A pillowcase dress for my daughter. around 3-6 months or 6-9 months size.
A fabric bucket
A small zippered makeup bag
Re-usable swiffer pads
Crafty onesies for my little girl (size 3-6 mos) or crafty T-shirts for my little boy (4T or 4/5)
Hair accessories for my daughter. Clips, headbands, etc. I really like the kind that aren't baby/pastel colors that I could find anywhere. Funky is good.
Birds nest pendant
Any vintage inspired jewelry
Any Steampunk jewelry
Carrot, octopus, key, tree or umbrella themed surprise!
A crocheted or knitted hat with a brim for my son. He is three-years-old and generally wears size 4/5 in clothing. I can measure his head if you PM me.
Any personified fruits/veggies (kid friendly). I already have a pear, an orange and a lemon.
Anything to display in my African-themed living room (think African masks, woven baskets, wooden bowls with patterns carved in, original artwork, etc.)
Large bag made of some funky fabric
Nursing cover, also of funky fun fabric
Charms for charm bracelet
Anything Final Fantasy themed for my husband
Anything Thomas the Tank Engine themed for my son. His favorite train is Percy (green), but he likes them all. (can be toys or room decor because his room is decorated in Thomas stuff)

Any resin pendants or bangles. See my wists for examples of my "style"

An apron, full or waist. I think I want to start a collection of these.
Wall art for my bathroom. The colors in there are orange, sage green, chocolate and tan.
Scarves! I prefer sewn scarves over knitted/crocheted ones because I can knit or crochet them myself.



Supplies

Any type of tools or molds(used is fine with me) to use in working with polymer clay
Polymer clay in any color, especially white or gray
Yarn (any color, weight, etc.) I can never ever ever have enough. My very favorite yarns are Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick and Vanna's Choice, but I love them all.

I claim Janelle for a full or waist apron

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!! (I know its currently Spring but sadly Winter will be back!!)
Chocolate brown snood in a 40s style (prefer a crochet or knitted tie versus elastic (stays on better)
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)

Primitive Rageddy Ann doll (An example is in my wists)

Handwarmers like the ones offered at Hot Topic. Victorian Goth ones would be perfect.

Crazy Quilted Purse.  Or any purse made by you!!  Im needing a new one!! 

Victorian capelet.  At least waist length please email for length.

Regency or Victorian era Reticule

Petticoat either knee or ankle length !!  (Im 5'5 email for length) (recieved one from farmgirljane and would love more!!)

Slat bonnet or corded can provide links if needed.  Any pattern should do as they are all basically the same result.

Victorian slipper.  This pattern is from 1864
http://www.victoriana.com/VictorianShoes/victorianslipperpattern.html

I sometimes buy bagged candy and really annoys me to have a few pieces left over in half a dozen bags.  So i would love a zippered bag in a candy themed fabric to put in my purse!!
 
Bars of handmade soap (the kind that is made from lye).  I have always wanted to try it!!  Lavender, oatmeal, goats milk, citrus are great however any scents are welcome!!  Or soap supplies/kit as I would love to learn how to make my own. Pre-made bars are appreciated as I have young children and am concerned with having lye in the house.     

Soap bombs.  Also jars of bath salts would be fantastic as well.

Hand crafted candles are great too. Prefer either fruit and or spice scented ones or lavender (only floral scented one I like).

Lavendar sachets for my dresser drawers (ive received some but im addicted lol!!  I even hang them near open windows  Grin)

Whimsey jar are really fun!!

Woodworking
I need a shelf for above my bathroom toilet!!  I just moved to a new home and need to decorate my own bathroom (living with 4 boys here I need my girly space lol)  My space from wall to wall is 26" (I can hit each side of the wall while sitting  )  It can be painted, stenciled, decoupaged!!  If painted or stenciled the colors I would like (I have pic of a shower curtain you can base colors on). I just ask that it have a victorian feel (especially if decoupaged please) to it!!  Other then that surprise me!!

 
 
~~Supplies~~

Hobby Lobby and Michaels crafts have Victorian style sewing supplies!! Sadly I am no longer local to either (actually no Hobby Lobby in CA) I would love  a chantilane.  However im also interested in any older sewing supplies as well from like antiques stores and such (I have a tracing wheel i bought for $4 so they can be affordable).

Im especially trying to find a Simplicity Jumper Pattern from 1948 pattern is on my wist list
 
Sewing materials/supplies of any form is welcomed!!  Even if I dont need it right now it will eventually get used!!  Fabric of all shapes colors and sizes are welcomed!!  Buttons!! New or vintage!!  Cuts of fabric is also welcomed!!

Im always needing thread for sewing and this always stays on my list. I go through alot of black and white but love new colors too!! New or gently used is fine.  Also serger thread (please no joanns brand) maxi lock is fine.

Stamps and ink pads

Beading supplies like wire 18 gauge or higher, beads, spacers.  Im also needing jewlery making supplies too.  I would love some Swarovski jewelry supplies!!  Also ANY bead findings from Blue Moon Beads of their Lost and Found and/or Manor House collection would be wonderful.  Im also looking for wire cutters.  Hubby is sick of tracking his down  Grin

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)

I claim frosty772 for some wisty surprises


This is my 4th claim this round, 2 sent, 1 recieved, 1 in transit, 1 outstanding

My name is Melanie.  I am a 28 (it's my birthday today!!!!!)  year old SAHM of 3 children so clutter comes with the territory.  I prefer to receive things that have a use over purely decorative things.  Items to help with organization are always welcome!   I love reading, sewing, and crafting.  I live on a farm in Iowa.   I have 2 cats who think they own the place and my husband has a few hundred fish (he breeds them and sells them).  I love traveling, but hate the driving involved.  If you are crafting for me or my family, please keep items G-rated….no scary skulls, profanity, or other potentially offensive items.  We are a smoke free family, and prefer to not receive items from a smoking home (smokey smells give me breathing troubles).  There are no other allergy issues. 

Crafts- I have these listed in order of most wanted..

*6 Placemats & runner for my diningroom like these http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/c1d736178cb03dc3f1cebdbe5f26dcdf?offset=80thank  you spectrumsparksie!!!!

*table runner type thing that I will use for the top of my craft cabinet…size preference is 18 inches x 4 ft. No dangles though, the cats will attack them! Lol.  This is in my dining room so chocolate colors would be good.

Love House MD, NCIS, CSI, SURVIVOR, BECOMING JANE, PRIDE & PREJUDICE, Pirates of the Caribbean, and craftster themed stuff  Oh… I wear a size small.  Please no neons.  Check my wists for other ideas

*jersey material for making some dresses, 3 yard minimum please

*would love a glass etching kit, or some supplies to get me started

*zippers black or white 8 or 14 inches long. (not the invisible kind, and not the chunky kind..just the regular ones)

*small game type pieces for some I-Spy bags that I want to make…there is an example in my wist

*elastic-the thinner width kind

*resin molds-, the bangle bracelet molds.  Can’t find them where I live. 

*stuff to add to the resin…colorings, tiny bits…etc. 


Extras

*Love chocolate, mint, and peanutbutter candies (not all those together)

*whatever you want to throw in…don’t have anything specific


If you have anything you that would love to make for me, but I don’t have it listed…feel free!  I love swapping because it gives me the opportunity to receive things that I can’t make myself, and also to enjoy the different styles of the people who are crafting for me!  All I ask is that items be kept g-rated!  Thanks! And if you are the one choosing me…Thank you sooooo much!!!

My name is Beth and I’m a chubby 25 year old living in western Michigan. I’m a graduate student in biology working with algae and insects in streams. I love all things sciency and naturey. I’m trying to green up my lifestyle and make/buy handmade clothing, cleaning and bath supplies etc… I am married to an awesomely crafty man who likes homemade stuff as much as me. I live with 3 cats in a tiny apartment and have no allergies. I like most colors but no neons or pastels, and red tends to be my favorite. I tend to opt for organic or linen fabric that has gone through little to no bleaching. With that said I’m a nut for Amy Butler and Heather Ross type bold designs as well. I am pretty easy to please. PM me if you have any questions!


Crafts:
Anything from my  Wist  (http://www.wists.com/bethwalker) is welcome.
-A long wrap skirt (this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=24570617) gives an idea of the length)

Post by: Velvet Rose on June 08, 2009 03:26:12 PM

I claim banga for rubber stamps, ephemera and altered art supplies. This is my third claim. None sent.

ABOUT ME

Hi there! I love feltmaking, papercrafts and altered art, and am addicted to swaps.  ;)

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

MY LIKES & DISLIKES
I would describe my style as "eco chic". I prefer natural materials (for enviromental and tactile reasons) so please avoid sending synthetic yarns, fibres or fabrics please.

I love pre 1970s vintage fabric - particularly vintage florals, upholstery fabrics and cotton velvet. I also like modern baroque/rococo style 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. I also like beige and chocolate brown.  No neons or black please, and I don't like yellow, orange, navy, peach or mint green.

Please see my profile and wists for more info about me.

CRAFTED ITEMS

SEWN

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.
Thanks gavagai

Sewing machine bag
I would love a bag for my vintage 1978 Bernina (its original bag died long ago). It would be great if it had a zip at the top and strong handles so I can carry it around places. Some pockets (inside and/or outside) for thread, bobbins etc would also be great. Please PM me for measurements - the machine is currently being serviced but should be back soon.

CROCHETED

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

Crocheted cotton market/shopping bag
I would love one that folds up into its own pocket. See my colour preferences above and my wists for examples
Thanks JanelleJ

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.

Crochet cotton flower earrings

Thanks in advance for claiming me.

I claim JanelleJ for a pillowcase dress  :)

Claim #3 for me (3,0,0)

I am Nicole, 28 year old full time SAHM to my 17 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:

* Handpainted wool yarn!!!!!!!  Any kind of colorway is good, but I especially like the rainbow ones.
* Knitted or crocheted wool longies, shorties, or skirty for my munchkin – PM me for exact measurements, but she’s pretty much a medium
* Headbands for the munchkin like these: http://www.sweetbabybowtique.com/catalog.php?category=96
* Yoga skirt like this one: http://wists.com/6a3f325dcfa1a05b96d4c8f2e1d66085?q=skirt&offset=0 – PM me for sizing info
* Cloth pads
* Vintage-y decorated tshirts, size L (I like the longer styles of tshirts) Examples on my wists
* Knit socks – any color/yarn is great!
* Re-usable sandwich wraps or snack bags
* Everyday cloth napkins – a set of 6 would be great, my kitchen is sage green, kind of a French country feel   
* Placemats to match my kitchen would be great!
* Monster hat or newsboy hat for my munchkin
* Laundry apron to hold the clothespins while I hang the laundry on the line
* Yummy handspun yarn goodness
* Penguin, owl, cat, or octopus amigurumi or stuffy, or any kind, really thanks everyone!  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! thanks 1boy1girl1kitty2!
* Handthrown/handpainted pottery – a tea pot or cup/saucer set 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 http://wists.com/musicalmama
* Hooded scarf - knitted, this pattern http://wists.com/musicalmama/a9c6576c627a40e4a0f6347b0d987717?offset=0

Supplies:

**Snap pliers for resin/plastic snaps
* Resin/plastic snaps (mostly white, but other colors are good)
* Hand painted wool yarn
* 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

* Needle felting kit – I would love to learn this! thanks oneredboot!

* Resin starter kit – I’d love to make some of those spoon pendants!

Extras:

* Anything penguin-ey

I claim mcook72677 for a headband inspired by one on her wists.
This is my third claim.

About Me: I'm 29 and I'm in MI, 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. There is lots more info in my blog - see the link in my signature.

Wishes:
 Crafted stuff:
- A bacon scarf: http://monstercrochet.blogspot.com/2006/07/bacon-wrap.html
- Cloth napkins/placemats, preferably in sets of 4, 6, or 8. My kitchen colors are cream, chocolate, and turquoise, but you could also do mixes of white, cherry red, and turquoise!
- Kitchen goodies like hand towels, salt/pepper shakers, dish soap dispensers, tea towels, etc. in the above mentioned color combos
- A picnic blanket! Like you find tucked into baskets at little boutiques, with dishes and wine keys and  coordinating napkins! I'd love a washable blanket in red/white/turquoise so I can have romantic picnics w/ the DH.
- A water bottle carrier that slings across the body, so I don't have to carry it in my hand while hiking. I have one of those big aluminum bottles. I like how this has adjustable straps! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26468141&ref=sr_gallery_11&&ga_search_query=bottle+carrier&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=1&order=date_desc&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title
- A medium sized zippered mesh laundry bag for washing delicates in the washing machine (I reeaaally need one of these for tights!)
- A unisex baby quilt with fabric similar to styles like Freshcut, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner (lots on my wist!) but it does NOT need to be designer fabric! Just mentioning the names to give you ideas!
- A ruby doll - http://oneredrobin.com/ruby-doll-patterns-and-instructions/
- A matryoshhka brooch (this one is cool! http://www.flickr.com/photos/vasiliisa/3177818254/in/set-72157594249878925/) one with dolls hanging vertically would work too!
- 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!

- 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/jessicarolland/411721501/

- 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... I think I'm good on stamps for now! Thanks Velvet Rose!
- Anything from or in the style of altered art supplies sold on http://www.artchixstudio.com/,  or http://www.skybluepink.com/ etc.
- Vintage ephemera, text pages from old books, vintage sheet music (think crumbly old, not 80's old :))

Extras:
- I'd love anything inspired by anything I've wisted, except for sandwich wraps which rangerbeth is making for me! Thanks rangerbeth! 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.
- I love teas, but no sweets or candies please!

Thank you for choosing me!

i claim banga for......... hmm, not sure yet, too many options. most likely a stenciled tee at least


2nd claim, 0 sent, 0 received.


hi. i am nicole. i just entered the last year of my twenties on may 27th. i live in upstate ny with my boyfriend of 8yrs matt, my dog gnarley, and my snail walter.  like a lot of you craftsters,  i also have crafting a.d.d..  i'll give anything a shot once.
i really like bright/bold colors, and HATE pastels or anything too girly like butterflies and hearts (but i do like anatomical hearts). i love retro prints and styles, especially mod. i am very turned off by synthetic scents, but love natural ones and essential oils (EXCEPT patchouli or sandalwood). i love kitsch and have a very quirky and sometimes inappropriate sense of humor
the stuff in orange i would REALLY love


CRAFTED GOODS:

-anything dia de los muertos related

-a tea wallet!!!!!! there is one on my wist that i love thank you 1boy1girl1kitty2

-alpaca art. i would love a little embroidered or collaged alpaca to hang on my wall. sounds like an odd request, but i work on an alpaca farm and i love those little buggers!

-a feather headband like one on my wist

--a glass, etched or hand painted dish soap dispenser. maybe with a dead of the dead design, or something else inspired my taste

-a small organizer for coupons (i know, how dorky, right?) i REALLY like this one http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22300844&ref=sr_gallery_16&&ga_search_query=coupon+organizer&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=19&includes[]

-resin tea bangles like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=292607.0

-handmade pottery, mugs or small vases

-a high-waisted skirt, maybe like this one https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=256045.0 or this one https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=282269.0

-knit/crochet booties maybe like the ones on my wist

-i would love a purse like one of these- http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23088955,  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=24719902

-an apron, i really like this stye- http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_gallery_10&listing_id=20058442&ga_search_query=mod+apron&ga_search_type=tag_title

-handmade natural candles or soaps with yummy, non-flowery scents

- weatherproof decorations for my extremely kitschy/eclectic garden

-an ipod nano cozy, this one is cute https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=286372.msg3244360#msg3244360

- a wrist cuff wallet. i'm a jogger and it would be nice to have one of these to stash a house key and some cash in. i prefer it to be made of a breathable fabric like cotton, since i am a sweaty beast. here's an example, though the pattern is not really my taste- http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26109464&ref=sr_list_3&&ga_search_query=wrist+wallet&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=2&order=date_desc&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title  thanks claire313 and 1boy1girl1kitty2!!


-anything you feel inspired to make based on my tastes (check out my profile and my wist http://www.wists.com/skaborsk ), surprise me!

craft supplies:
--sublime stitching patterns daniel johnston, the black apple, lucha libre, i luv veggies, dia de los muertes, spaced out
-i'd really like to try working with resin, so supplies would be great, especially a mold to make resin bangles with
-ceramic pens!!!! WHY cant i find these anywhere?!?
-cool stencils
-sugar skull molds
-any soap making supplies (except molds, i have those)
-empty glass or plastic lotion/bath salt ect. containers (i make body scrubs, and i like to recycle/reuse containers)
-essential oils, i use them like crazy!

extras:
-TEA!!! especially organic, black, green, and chai are my favorites
-dark chocolate
-Vernor's ginger ale!!!! help me out here, you ohio/michigan people! even just one can of it would make me estatic.


THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!

Post by: rlynn on June 15, 2009 05:13:11 PM
I claim atsuko for natural stone chips for tree of life pendants.

this my fourth claim, 3 sent, 2 received, 1 in transit. (did i do that right?  gets confusing!)  

My name is Robin and I live in Oregon.  I am married to Phil, a fantastic cook who spoils me with delicious meals.  We have a one year old daughter named Aria who is the most rambunctious and curious little child that I know.  I am a feminist who is trying to raise my daughter to be anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobic…anything (surprises are nice) that supports these ideas will be greatly loved.

I am a wee bit eccentric when it comes to my likes and dislikes.  I am all over the board, I like whimsical, edgy, bohemian, steampunk, pretty, bold, soft, hard…I wear a lot of black and grey, but I’ve been cautiously branching out into the wondrous color wheel lately.  Heh.  I love fun color combinations like red and turquoise.  I do not like neon or Easter egg pastel colors.  I prefer rich, deep jewel tones the best.  I like images of dandelions, squirrels, birds (ravens, peacocks, and cranes especially), leaves, and trees, but I also really like skulls (not cutesy ones just plain ole skulls or even a tad more colorful like the skulls of Día de los Muertos), anatomy, skeletons (especially of birds and other non-human creatures), and old locomotives.  You can check out my wist to get a better idea of what I like.

Some of my wishes (BIG wishes in bold)…Wisty surprises are absolutely welcome!!!

CRAFTS

Knitted crafts

*knitted handwarmers (no idea what measurements are needed here…PM me…I do have fairly small hands though for my height, wrist size 6 inches)

*Cute knitted, felted, or amigurumi toys for Aria (we like odd toys best, she has a collection of odd stuffed animals)

*crocheted play food  -Thank you leighi123 more is always fine, pm me to find out what we have

*knitted cuffs maybe with a skull design in it

Sewn crafts

*a cute pin cushion

*a thread catcher

*a wristlet in pretty but durable fabric (*sigh* I need something to hold my wallet, keys, phone, and lip gloss…I’m tired of using whatever plastic grocery bag I can find)

*Japanese knot bag in a color that pops like red or turquoise

*lounge pants in cotton or fleece (size M 8-10, I wear M in Target brands if that helps)

*felt food for Aria like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=222947.0

*Dolls for Aria (We would love dolls from various ethnic backgrounds…African American, Asian, Latino, etc…the world is a colorful place so should her play world be…) Teachingjonah made Aria a sweet African American girl doll and Aria loves her!

*Stuffies (again, we like odd, whimsical, fun...and most of all cuddly!)

*Hooded baby/toddler towels

*clothing for Aria's groovy girls (pm me for size info if you're not sure)

*Embellished bath towels

Misc or multi-media crafts

*hoodie for me in size M/L with cool appliqué or screen print…I have a thing about red hoodies...just saying.  (I like my hoodie to fit loose so probably best to stay away from the juniors aisle, I have been blessed with ample hips, breasts, and tummy all courtesy of genes and motherhood)

*appliquéd or screen printed tees, tunics, or dresses for Aria (she weighs about 23 lbs and is 30 inches tall so roughly 18 month, maybe 24 months if you want to give her something to grow into)

*jewelry that is edgy (I love the look of steampunk) like this http://images.etsy.com/all_images/0/0a1/fbd/il_fullxfull.19832902.jpg or bohemian like this http://www.shreejigems.com/full-images/676417.jpg.  (Oh I am not fond of chokers…I hate the feeling…I would probably be fine though it if it’s made entirely of fabric and has give)  Thanks Atsuko!

*I also love wide cuffs (leather or metal or even fabric) like this
http://www.handmadefinds.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/cuff.jpg or this http://www.timelyjewels.com/cb140full.JPG or this http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2091/1517196417_30011118ed.jpg

*one of those wall frame jewelry holders...(i have a few in my wist for reference)

*pretty Victorian or bohemian hair clips, bobby pins, hair combs, etc...for me

*Bright and colorful buttons (mostly round but a few fun shapes are great too, don’t have to be matching)

I claim rlynn for some felt foods

This is claim #4 for me: 0 outstanding, 2 in transit, 1 received

I am Nicole, 28 year old full time SAHM to my 17 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:

* Handpainted wool yarn!!!!!!!  Any kind of colorway is good, but I especially like the rainbow ones.
* Knitted or crocheted wool longies, shorties, or skirty for my munchkin – PM me for exact measurements, but she’s pretty much a medium
* Headbands for the munchkin like these: http://www.sweetbabybowtique.com/catalog.php?category=96
* Yoga skirt like this one: http://wists.com/6a3f325dcfa1a05b96d4c8f2e1d66085?q=skirt&offset=0 – PM me for sizing info
* Cloth pads
* Vintage-y decorated tshirts, size L (I like the longer styles of tshirts) Examples on my wists
* Knit socks – any color/yarn is great!
* Re-usable sandwich wraps or snack bags
* Everyday cloth napkins – a set of 6 would be great, my kitchen is sage green, kind of a French country feel   
* Placemats to match my kitchen would be great!
* Monster hat or newsboy hat for my munchkin
* Hobo style purse/bag
* Laundry apron to hold the clothespins while I hang the laundry on the line
* Yummy handspun yarn goodness
* Penguin, owl, cat, or octopus amigurumi or stuffy, or any kind, really: thanks everyone!  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! thanks 1boy1girl1kitty2!
* Handthrown/handpainted pottery – a tea pot or cup/saucer set 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 http://wists.com/musicalmama
* Hooded scarf - knitted, this pattern http://wists.com/musicalmama/a9c6576c627a40e4a0f6347b0d987717?offset=0

Supplies:

**Snap pliers for resin/plastic snaps
* Resin/plastic snaps (mostly white, but other colors are good)
* Hand painted wool yarn
* 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! thanks oneredboot!
* Polymer clay starter kit thanks mcook72677!
* 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

I claim musiclady for some reusable sandwich bags

This is my 5th claim this round, 1 outstanding, 2 in transit, 2 recieved


My name is Melanie.  I am a 28 year old SAHM of 3 children so clutter comes with the territory.  I prefer to receive things that have a use over purely decorative things.  Items to help with organization are always welcome!   I love reading, sewing, and crafting.  I live on a farm in Iowa.   I have 2 cats who think they own the place and my husband has a few hundred fish (he breeds them and sells them).  I love traveling, but hate the driving involved.  If you are crafting for me or my family, please keep items G-rated….no scary skulls, profanity, or other potentially offensive items.  We are a smoke free family, and prefer to not receive items from a smoking home (smokey smells give me breathing troubles).  There are no other allergy issues.  

Crafts- I have these listed in order of most wanted..


I really, really would like this wish fullfilled...
***A Project bag.  Something to hold my WIP crochet/knitting projects.  I would love for it to have a few slots on the inside to hold my knitting needles/crochet hooks and small pair of scissors, and maybe a small snap pocket to hold some stitch markers, a pocket either on the inside or outside to hold my pattern instructions (8 1/2 x 11 size pages), and for it to have a wide bottom (I'm thinking like the bottoms on the re-usuable shopping bags) so it is roomy enough for my yarn skeins.  I'll love you forever if you can fullfill this wish.  I have summer vacations coming up and would love this to take along...car trips are always sooooooo long.


*6 Placemats & runner for my diningroom like these http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/c1d736178cb03dc3f1cebdbe5f26dcdf?offset=80 thank  you spectrumsparksie!!!!

*stenciled or bleached t-shirts… please no iron ons..keep them G-rated as I have small kiddos.  Some theme ideas.. Love House MD, NCIS, CSI, SURVIVOR, BECOMING JANE, PRIDE & PREJUDICE, Pirates of the Caribbean, and craftster themed stuff  Oh… I wear a size small.  Please no neons.  Check my wists for other ideas

*scarf like this one http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/be1f456f3be8868544ef42fe4d945f4e?offset=20  Thank you Sarahj2001 (from the june 2009 b-day swap)

*bedside organizer like this one http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/6da9f208c8a4679512550e2dd1a4ee9b?offset=20

*Some sort of organizer that attaches to the back of a car seat to hold coloring books, crayons, pencils etc, for our summer vacation trips

*I love jewelry, dangly earrings, necklaces on the smaller length side (18 inches is perfect) , bracelets (6.5 inches)… like these
http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/39fe3342f03cd86882e193a738d8fe28?offset=40

*anything from my wists  www.wists.com/stitch81

*reusable shopping bags that are patterned after the plastic ones.  but nothing too bold or loud of print.

*infinity dress in some summery type pattern/color (pm me for size)

*knitted or crocheted socks, preferably charcoal,oatmeal, black, burgundy or hunter green colors.  Wear a size 9 US.  Would love them to come to mid-calf length.


Craft Supplies - again, most wished for are listed first

*Supplies for making tree of life pendants, especially the outer wire.

*chip beads, any colors

*adhesive velcro, white or black, the strips, not the dots.

*recent summer dress patterns for around a size women's 6.  see my wists for style preferences

*jersey material for making some dresses, 3 yard minimum please

*would love a glass etching kit, or some supplies to get me started

*zippers black or white 8 or 14 inches long. (not the invisible kind, and not the chunky kind..just the regular ones)

*small game type pieces for some I-Spy bags that I want to make…there is an example in my wist

*elastic-the thinner width kind

*resin molds-, the bangle bracelet molds.  Can’t find them where I live.  

*stuff to add to the resin…colorings, tiny bits…etc.  


Extras

*Love chocolate, mint, and peanutbutter candies (not all those together)

*whatever you want to throw in…don’t have anything specific


If you have anything you that would love to make for me, but I don’t have it listed…feel free!  I love swapping because it gives me the opportunity to receive things that I can’t make myself, and also to enjoy the different styles of the people who are crafting for me!  All I ask is that items be kept g-rated!  Thanks! And if you are the one choosing me…Thank you sooooo much!!!

I'm going to claim stitch81 for some jewelry surprises, possibly inspired by her wists. (In other words, let's see what I can come up with!) ;D

Claim #2 - 0 outstanding / 1 in transit / 0 received

About Me

Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 32 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

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 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/) (Snuggie) I almost bought an actual "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.

*big wish* -- A robe like this one (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/a3a42670262dc240c5598e8e52c486a4?offset=0). I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*new* -- A cell/ipod touch cozy/wristlet (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25437558) like this. I love the colors and the shape/size of this one.

*new* -- A little zip wallet like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303612.0).

*new* -- A Disney Pin Trading Wallet like these that MissDisney (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=299888.msg3421346#msg3421346) made. I especially like the red/yellow one since it's very Mickey colored, or other Disney printed ones. (My initial is "M") This would be great for carrying around my pins to trade at the parks!!

*new* -- Some Fabric buckets (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303865.0) like this or like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=307117.0) to store and tote around craft supplies.

*new* - A wallet. Something slim but with a lot of card slots and an id slot. Something in a aqua or robin's egg blue would be great to match my new purse. (Brown/aqua would be good too.) There's several examples I like here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/wallet) on my wist.

 -- 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).

Knitting

*big wish* -- This scarf in these type of earthy, natural colors (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=144573.msg1422950#msg1422950). (If it were in a mix of teal blue and chocolate brown that would work too.) 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.)


Other

*new* -- A gem tree (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302606.0) like this (or really, like any of the ones she makes because they're all lovely!)

*new* -- A gem tree in a glass ball in emerald and silver like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=17137298). Emerald is my birthstone.

*new*  -- Hand carved rubber stamps Especially cute/quirky things based on my likes/wist. I like natural things (like trees, flowers, birds, etc.) too. Really, I'm just crap at making them myself and there are so many cute ones out there.

  -- 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. I have a wall of sliding glass doors and a balcony to show things off.

 -- 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)

 -- 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 style (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vt_related_1&listing_id=23838665). It's SO pretty. (I love the brown leather.)

 -- 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 amazon 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
 
*new* -- Rubber stamp pads and/or rubber stamp markers. I've gotten a pretty cool collection of stamps but I have no ink pads for them!

 -- 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.


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 going to claim Phoenixfiredesigns for something Disney and/or bicycles (I'm from the Netherlands bicycle country #1). And some extras depending on what I can fit in the package.

Claim #1 - 0 outstanding /  in transit / 0 received

I'm Susan, a 18 year old student from the Netherlands.
I'm starting my college study after summer break. I'll be studying Costume and set-design. I also will be moving out to my own little house.
My clothing-style is kinda, bohemian-punk (if that even exists) I love hats, bright colors, plaid fabrics, purple and deep pink combined with black. My parents tell me to grow up but I love cute childlike things especially Disney’s Mulan, Enchanted, Alice in wonderland and Studio Ghibli’s spirited away and Howl’s moving castle. I'm a true geek, I play D&D in three different parties, and I'm the DM for 1 of them. I also play Larp at a very frequent level and work at fair's and festivals.

My wish list in random order; bold wishes are the big ones.

- Huge wish: A patchwork shirt, skirt or dress, Hippy style that I can wear to summer gatherings. I got some examples:
http://wists.com/scaramouche/94dc9317d1a729de69ca637781ac1969?offset=20 http://wists.com/scaramouche/e5d41e3e6e70bb71f9dd1dc3e0d7e151?offset=20 there's a few more examples on my wist.

- The knitted tie from the Punkknits book; in black with red or hot pink or purple accents. I can supply the pattern for you.

- I play Larp which is a really expensive hobby because of all the costumes. Therefore I would love to have costume jewelry in all shapes and sizes. Especially nature based (for my medieval scouting character) and steampunk (for my sci-fi  character.) I can supply photo's of the costumes so you have an idea what to make.

- Bottle cap earrings-with a tutorial on how to make them myself. I love images from: Buffy the vampire slayer, Firefly/serenity, Nightmare before Christmas, studio Ghibli movies and musical theatre especially we will rock you and wicked.

- A bag for my waterbottle that I can hang on my belt when I'm working festivals. Something kind of historical/fantasy looking would be great. I can provide the ecaxt measurements easily. I love this quiver style one: http://wists.com/e7a8e34f84d8e812a21a12d2fca36ff3?q=bottle%20holder&offset=40

- A purse/bag to hang on my belt when I'm working. Again something fantasy/historical would be awesome.

- Fingerless gloves in brown (sewn, knitted or crochet)

- Fingerless gloves. In black with purple or hot pink accents (for larp)

- A t-shirt dedicated to my current D&D character which I love. I can supply you with all the needed info, including some quotes.

- Spats with a leather look (steampunk style) for Larp. Something along the lines of this.
http://wists.com/scaramouche/3a48a1f5fb0349f8fdd167c69701821a?offset=0

- Accessories that are gothic/steampunk style. I don’t like skulls and big pointy studs.

- Cool artistic notebooks for college. Or a dummy (big a4 sized sketchbook with blank pages) with a cool cover.

- Dice (RPG) jewelry

- A steampunk necklace

- Something from my wist: http://www.wists.com/scaramouche


t-shirt wishes: I’m a size m in unfitted shirts and an L in fitted ones.
- A D&D related shirt with the letters DM on the front and on the back Dungeon Mistress.
- A t-shirts that says. Oh; I see Orcs......Let's walk towards them.
- a t-shirt to show of my proud Buffy the vampire slayer fandom. Look for ideas here: http://www.cafepress.com/buy/buffy I really love a What would Buffy do? Tee.
- A t-shirt to show off my Joss Whedon fandom. It would have Whedonist on one side and the other side would say: Always be yourself; unless you suck!
- A tee that has the following Buffy quote on it: ‘I laugh in the face of danger; then I hide until it goes away’

Supply wishes.
- Gears, gizmo's and other doohdahs for steampunk style stuff.
- Fabric scraps anything bigger then 5X5 inches.
- Ribbons and lace I can use in hairpieces; preferably blues, browns, black and white.

Post by: AbbyRose on June 18, 2009 08:06:35 AM
I claim geckochan for some cloth pads.

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

I am 26 years old and I am sahm to my 21 mth old daughter, Abigail. I live in Ontario, Canada with my daughter and my husband. 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 have 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
* 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.
* Funky Apron  in a style like this, the colours and style are great! - PM me for sizing  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 * Nightgown in one of these styles: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25691497&ref=sr_gallery_7&&ga_search_query=nightgown&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=13&order=price_desc&includes or this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=19063921&ref=sr_gallery_19&&ga_search_query=nightgown&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=14&order=price_desc&includes - PM me for sizing and colour preferences
*Paintbrush Roll Similar to a needle or hook roll but I’d like it to have interfacing to protect the bristles from bending. I like this mishmash of fabric/colour choices and double-pockets. Not fond of the button closure though, ties would be better. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23670127
* Stiff fabric baskets to be used for storage. I love the ones where you can fold the cuff up or down to make them shorter or taller. I'd prefer them to be rectangular.

Must be freestanding and I prefer there to be no backing and have wire mesh as the earring holder instead of lace.

SUPPLIES:
An entire supply package would be fabulous!!

* Fabric Fun, vibrant, abstract prints are preferred, I’m not really into character or animal . I like Alexander Henry Boutique Collection, Joel Dewberry Aviary and pretty much anything Amy Butler or similar styles. Scraps are great just nothing smaller than 3" x 3" please.

* stainless steel or sterling silver ear wires (hooks, kidney or handmade)
* Pendant trays for resin pendants. Round, square or oval.
* Small trinkets and items to imbed in resin.
* Glass or acrylic beads can be simple or fun and funky! Mixture of colours, shapes and sizes.

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

EXTRAS:

* Chocolate - Whatchamacalit Bar (willy wonka) 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!

Post by: rlynn on June 18, 2009 09:17:46 AM
I claim AbbyRose for a box of supplies (will include fabric, but also more after I figure out what I want to send her!  no craft store...argh!).

this my fifth claim, 3 sent, 2 received, 1 in transit.

My name is Robin and I live in Oregon.  I am married to Phil, a fantastic cook who spoils me with delicious meals.  We have a one year old daughter named Aria who is the most rambunctious and curious little child that I know.  I am a feminist who is trying to raise my daughter to be anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobic…anything (surprises are nice) that supports these ideas will be greatly loved.

I am a wee bit eccentric when it comes to my likes and dislikes.  I am all over the board, I like whimsical, edgy, bohemian, steampunk, pretty, bold, soft, hard…I wear a lot of black and grey, but I’ve been cautiously branching out into the wondrous color wheel lately.  Heh.  I love fun color combinations like red and turquoise.  I do not like neon or Easter egg pastel colors.  I prefer rich, deep jewel tones the best.  I like images of dandelions, squirrels, birds (ravens, peacocks, and cranes especially), leaves, and trees, but I also really like skulls (not cutesy ones just plain ole skulls or even a tad more colorful like the skulls of Día de los Muertos), anatomy, skeletons (especially of birds and other non-human creatures), and old locomotives.  You can check out my wist to get a better idea of what I like.

Some of my wishes (BIG wishes in bold)…Wisty surprises are absolutely welcome!!!

CRAFTS

Knitted crafts

*knitted handwarmers (no idea what measurements are needed here…PM me…I do have fairly small hands though for my height, wrist size 6 inches) -thanks, oneredboot!

*Cute knitted, felted, or amigurumi toys for Aria (we like odd toys best, she has a collection of odd stuffed animals)

*crocheted play food  -Thank you leighi123 more is always fine, pm me to find out what we have

*knitted cuffs maybe with a skull design in it

Sewn crafts

*a cute pin cushion

*a thread catcher

*a wristlet in pretty but durable fabric (*sigh* I need something to hold my wallet, keys, phone, and lip gloss…I’m tired of using whatever plastic grocery bag I can find)

*Japanese knot bag in a color that pops like red or turquoise

*lounge pants in cotton or fleece (size M 8-10, I wear M in Target brands if that helps)

*felt food for Aria like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=222947.0 - thank you, musiclady!

*Dolls for Aria (We would love dolls from various ethnic backgrounds…African American, Asian, Latino, etc…the world is a colorful place so should her play world be…) Teachingjonah made Aria a sweet African American girl doll and Aria loves her!

*Stuffies (again, we like odd, whimsical, fun...and most of all cuddly!)

*Hooded baby/toddler towels

*clothing for Aria's groovy girls (pm me for size info if you're not sure)

*Embellished bath towels

Misc or multi-media crafts

*hoodie for me in size M/L with cool appliqué or screen print…I have a thing about red hoodies...just saying.  (I like my hoodie to fit loose so probably best to stay away from the juniors aisle, I have been blessed with ample hips, breasts, and tummy all courtesy of genes and motherhood)

*appliquéd or screen printed tees, tunics, or dresses for Aria (she weighs about 23 lbs and is 30 inches tall so roughly 18 month, maybe 24 months if you want to give her something to grow into)

*jewelry that is edgy (I love the look of steampunk) like this http://images.etsy.com/all_images/0/0a1/fbd/il_fullxfull.19832902.jpg or bohemian like this http://www.shreejigems.com/full-images/676417.jpg.  (Oh I am not fond of chokers…I hate the feeling…I would probably be fine though it if it’s made entirely of fabric and has give)  Thanks Atsuko! Steampunk is fine, please check out the gallery to see what Atsuko made me though! : )

*I also love wide cuffs (leather or metal or even fabric) like this
http://www.handmadefinds.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/cuff.jpg or this http://www.timelyjewels.com/cb140full.JPG or this http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2091/1517196417_30011118ed.jpg
(I could do without the spider web; I think this would look cute in jewel tone colors in a pretty print or even black with a skull; also I love all metals especially when its looks worn and old; wrist size is 6 inches) oneredboot got me a fantastic embroidered blue felt cuff from my wist...but more is welcome...I LOVE cuffs, its a sickness, i tell ya!

*one of those wall frame jewelry holders...(i have a few in my wist for reference)

*pretty Victorian or bohemian hair clips, bobby pins, hair combs, etc...for me

*Candles, LOVE vanilla and baked goodies smells, also love lavender and lemongrass, the only smells not overly fond of are patchouli and super strong flowery scents.

*neat-o decorated coffee mugs, either hand sculpted or a plain ones embellished with one of those pens like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=284893.0;topicseen but maybe with more whimsical designs like birds, trees, dandelions and whatnot (I have only three coffee mugs at home…2 of which have chips in them…so sad)

*Pretty smelling soap (see above under candles for scent preferences)

*Artwork for my home (trees, birds, dandelions, interesting, not of this world landscapes, my daughter…these are all good subjects, PM if you want a photo of my daughter or see my profile for her totsites.com page…tons of photos there.)

*An accordion file organizer (you know like the cardboard kinds) decorated all pretty and awaiting my many and disorganized patterns that are laying about the house

SUPPLIES
(PsSt...I don’t mind used supplies in the least as long as there is enough to still play around with and have a bit of fun!)

*Vinyl in a variety of colors, scraps and strips are fine as long as they’re not teeny tiny

*Bright and colorful buttons (mostly round but a few fun shapes are great too, don’t have to be matching)

*beads (glass, semi-precious, swarvoski) any size but seed bead prefer at least 8mm, would love 22mm and larger (i have a lot in blue already, but would love more green or red beads!)

*ultra-fine, fine, and thick sharpies in black and fun colors

*Old skeleton keys, small interesting metal gears and doodads

*jewelry findings in gunmetal, brass, and copper (chains, clasps, eye pins, and head pins especially!!)

*100% white cotton (at least 8 by 10)

*Cold water dyes in variety of colors (brand doesn’t matter)

*Blocks of Beeswax and Paraffin waxes

EXTRAS

*old maps especially of cities outside USA
*transportation tickets, tokens, what have you especially if from cities outside USA
*Tea
*Candy or food (that travels well) unique to your region (I’m fairly adventurous)

Thank you!!!

Post by: lapoli on June 18, 2009 10:47:14 AM
I'd like to claim mcook72677 for a pair of knitted ankle socks.

This is my first of 3 claims allowed, 0 sent, 0 received.

A little about me:  I live in North Carolina with my husband, giant dog and three cats.  By day, I'm the manager of a busy locally-owned business and by night, a person who is content to curl up at home with my knitting and a good movie (kung fu or Jane Austen, please).   My favorite color is green but browns and mustard yellows are close seconds.  I enjoy a good glass of wine at the end of the day, arugula and goat cheese salads and driving with my air conditioning on and all the windows open.  

Crafts

Embroidered Handkerchiefs - particularly freeform designs and as this is likely to get tossed into a purse, any colors are fine

Hand thrown coffee mugs – Absolutely adore these: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10760703

Embroidered kitchen towels.

new!Organic cotton, hemp or linen handknit (or crocheted) washcloths.

Handmade Beeswax or Soy Candles. Any scent but strong florals.

Cat bed for my kittens. Prefer browns or dark colors that won’t show cat hair too easily.

Fabric placemats--maybe with the center quilted?

PJs/Yoga Pants in natural fabrics. I’m a tiny lady. :)

Tree-themed pillowcases.

Small stained glass/suncatchers for my deck door.

Hand-dipped incense

Mustard colored knit hat--perhaps something along the lines of Felicity or Le Slouch

Eclectic/found object windchime.

Small hand-painted picture frames. I have some great trees by phizzychick and no way to display them.

Handwarmers for my husband - in black or brown

Handmade birdfeeders or bird houses.

Hand-dyed/hand-painted yarn.  Prefer worsted weights.

A set of four hand-thrown appetizer plates or shallow bowls (they can be small-ish) in greens or browns.

Handspun yarn.

Vintage pottery -- in browns, greens or whites.

Men's stenciled t-shirt. Bike or motorcycle design for my husband. Size small/medium.

Loose handknit cowl.

Handmade, wooden shawl pin

Handwarmers/wristwarmers -- in off-white/creme or brown, maybe, but I'd prefer something tweedy?

Manly checkbook cover in darker colors--brown, black, navy blue. Maybe canvas? Something durable and simple.

Slippers for the chilly evenings!

Polymer clay buttons.

Artisan cheese/bread board made out of wood -- anything like [url-http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26662744&ref=cat2_list_15]this[/url] or =tags&includes[]=title]this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25789611&ref=sr_list_7&&ga_search_query=cheese+board&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=3&order=date_desc&includes[)

Black legwarmers -- I've got a pair in green, thanks to addicted2knitting, and I wear them all the time. Perhaps another pair in my collection would be nice. :)

Anything inspired by my wists! http://www.wists.com/lapoli (http://www.wists.com/lapoli)

Craft Supplies

I'd really like to make a rag rug this year -- any worn out t-shirts in greens or browns, the softer the better, would be really useful (I think? I've never made one of these before!)

Acrylic yarns suitable for baby/charity knitting.  Any colors are fine, but brighter ones are usually more useful. :)

Worsted weight, 100% wool yarns.

Hemp/linen/organic cotton yarns -- anything earth friendly, recycled, unusual fibers, etc.

Bare/Natural Wool for dyeing

100% wool sweaters.

Tweed/donegal yarns.

Green stamp pads


Extras

Green teas.  Loose or bagged.

Heirloom Vegetable Seeds.



Shout at me if I stall! I'll update with more ideas. :)

I claim mcook72677 for a slouchy red hat!

This is my 3rd claim, 0 sent, 0 in transit, 2 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).  I'm also wearing a lot of orange this season--bright, clear oranges (more red than yellow). 

Here's my wishlist.  Thank you!

This is the second of 3 claims allowed, 0 sent, 0 received.

A little about me:  I live in North Carolina with my husband, giant dog and three cats.  By day, I'm the manager of a busy locally-owned business and by night, a person who is content to curl up at home with my knitting and a good movie (kung fu or Jane Austen, please).   My favorite color is green but browns and mustard yellows are close seconds.  I enjoy a good glass of wine at the end of the day, arugula and goat cheese salads and driving with my air conditioning on and all the windows open.

I claim aeronberry for some supplies and some other things!

Claim 3, 0 sent, 1 received

I’m a 23yr old single mommy to a wonderful 23month old boy, Levi.  We live in Florida with my parents.  I love anything to do with the beach/ocean etc., anything nature inspired and bright, fun colors.  I’m a vegetarian, and also like ‘natural’ type things, and I always love getting stuff for my son!    I dislike – pastel colors, anything not vegetarian (leather, feathers etc.), anything super flowery/frilly.  


Crafted Items:

Anything from my wists - http://www.wists.com/leighi123  (there is a lot there!)

Clothing for me – I need summer stuff!  Skirts, sundresses, tops etc.  I'm a size xs/s, 0-3, can get measurements if needed.   I would also love any embellished shirts – I'm not picky on this, anything unique!  (for store bought shirts, I usually wear xs in jrs. sizes)

Handmade clothing or embellished shirts for my son.  18mont size and up.  He likes: sharks, fish, giraffes, manatees, armadillos, sea turtles, octopus, squid,  animals of any kind, advocacy wear (vegetarian, extended rear facing, intactivist, etc.), tye dye, hippie type clothing, swimming/water related, and anything a little boy might like.  Those are just ideas, I’d be happy with anything!

Some sort of toddler water ‘socks’ maybe made with swimsuit or wetsuit type fabric? Something that will prevent his feet from burning, but still be able to swim in them.  

Handmade toys for a 2 yr old – his bday is in July

Any gifts for a 2 yr old boy for his bday

Beach tote bag – needs to hold 2 towels, have a small pocket for phone/keys, maybe some other pockets too would be awesome.

Thingy that hangs on the wall and holds coupons – doesn’t have to organize them, just hold them in one place is fine.

Organizer for back of the toilet

Crochet/knit bikini

Bag thingy for holding bath toys –maybe a crochet net-type one – needs to hang from a towel bar, or 2 loops to hang from metal shower organizer thingy

Necklaces and bracelets made from Baltic amber – toddler and adult sizes.

Necklace w/ a pair of jeans as the pendant (for my son, Levi), prefer something waterproof, I tend to randomly jump in the pool/ocean.

Yummy smelling body spray

Crochet veggie pizza (plain cheese or veggie)

Supplies:

Unique fabrics – like printable fabrics, grippy material and ultra suede (for shoe soles), any fun prints
Fabric w/ ‘food’ on it

Shrinky dink paper stuff (even a small amount)

Clothing blanks, esp newborn-toddler sizes, but can use big kid/adult too!  Any colour.

Baltic amber beads – recycled is fine

Kits for making any type of new craft – batik, tye dye, needle felting, resin pendants, soap/body products, etc.  

Notions of any type – for making busy books.

Any type of craft book, esp sewing books.  I love the ones for kids too (like the Klutz ones)  Magazines too – used is totally fine!

Sewing patterns for baby/kids/jrs xs (for me) – used is fine.

Things to put in I-spy bags (anything tiny!)


Other:

Toddler boy flip flops size 6

Post by: rlynn on June 24, 2009 12:13:50 PM
I claim Lapoli for a men's stenciled tee.

this is my 6th claim, 4 received, 1 outstanding.

My name is Robin and I live in Oregon.  I am married to Phil, a fantastic cook who spoils me with delicious meals.  We have a one year old daughter named Aria who is the most rambunctious and curious little child that I know.  I am a feminist who is trying to raise my daughter to be anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobic…anything (surprises are nice) that supports these ideas will be greatly loved.

I am a wee bit eccentric when it comes to my likes and dislikes.  I am all over the board, I like whimsical, edgy, bohemian, steampunk, pretty, bold, soft, hard…I wear a lot of black and grey, but I’ve been cautiously branching out into the wondrous color wheel lately.  Heh.  I love fun color combinations like red and turquoise.  I do not like neon or Easter egg pastel colors.  I prefer rich, deep jewel tones the best.  I like images of dandelions, squirrels, birds (ravens, peacocks, and cranes especially), leaves, and trees, but I also really like skulls (not cutesy ones just plain ole skulls or even a tad more colorful like the skulls of Día de los Muertos), anatomy, skeletons (especially of birds and other non-human creatures), and old locomotives.  You can check out my wist to get a better idea of what I like.

Some of my wishes (BIG wishes in bold)…Wisty surprises are absolutely welcome!!!

CRAFTS

Knitted crafts

*knitted handwarmers (no idea what measurements are needed here…PM me…I do have fairly small hands though for my height, wrist size 6 inches) -thanks, oneredboot!

*Cute knitted, felted, or amigurumi toys for Aria (we like odd toys best, she has a collection of odd stuffed animals)

*crocheted play food  -Thank you leighi123 more is always fine, pm me to find out what we have

*knitted cuffs maybe with a skull design in it

Sewn crafts

*a cute pin cushion

*a thread catcher

*a wristlet in pretty but durable fabric (*sigh* I need something to hold my wallet, keys, phone, and lip gloss…I’m tired of using whatever plastic grocery bag I can find)

*Japanese knot bag in a color that pops like red or turquoise

*lounge pants in cotton or fleece (size M 8-10, I wear M in Target brands if that helps)

*felt food for Aria like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=222947.0 - thank you, musiclady!

*Dolls for Aria (We would love dolls from various ethnic backgrounds…African American, Asian, Latino, etc…the world is a colorful place so should her play world be…) Teachingjonah made Aria a sweet African American girl doll and Aria loves her!

*Stuffies (again, we like odd, whimsical, fun...and most of all cuddly!)

*Hooded baby/toddler towels

*clothing for Aria's groovy girls (pm me for size info if you're not sure)

*Embellished bath towels

Misc or multi-media crafts

*hoodie for me in size M/L with cool appliqué or screen print…I have a thing about red hoodies...just saying.  (I like my hoodie to fit loose so probably best to stay away from the juniors aisle, I have been blessed with ample hips, breasts, and tummy all courtesy of genes and motherhood)

Steampunk is fine, please check out the gallery to see what Atsuko made me though! : )

*I also love wide cuffs (leather or metal or even fabric) like this
http://www.handmadefinds.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/cuff.jpg or this http://www.timelyjewels.com/cb140full.JPG or this http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2091/1517196417_30011118ed.jpg
(I could do without the spider web; I think this would look cute in jewel tone colors in a pretty print or even black with a skull; also I love all metals especially when its looks worn and old; wrist size is 6 inches) oneredboot got me a fantastic embroidered blue felt cuff from my wist...but more is welcome...I LOVE cuffs, its a sickness, i tell ya!

*tree of life pendant for my friend (silver maybe with greens/blues)

*one of those wall frame jewelry holders...(i have a few in my wist for reference)

*pretty Victorian or bohemian hair clips, bobby pins, hair combs, etc...for me

*Candles, LOVE vanilla and baked goodies smells, also love lavender and lemongrass, the only smells not overly fond of are patchouli and super strong flowery scents.

*neat-o decorated coffee mugs, either hand sculpted or a plain ones embellished with one of those pens like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=284893.0;topicseen but maybe with more whimsical designs like birds, trees, dandelions and whatnot (I have only three coffee mugs at home…2 of which have chips in them…so sad)

*Pretty smelling soap (see above under candles for scent preferences)

*Vinyl in a variety of colors, scraps and strips are fine as long as they’re not teeny tiny

*Bright and colorful buttons (mostly round but a few fun shapes are great too, don’t have to be matching)

Post by: phoenixfiredesigns on June 24, 2009 12:59:19 PM
Yay! A claim I can make! I'll claim rlynn for  *tree of life pendant for my friend (silver maybe with greens/blues)

Claim #3 overall - 1 outstanding / 0 in transit / 1 received

About Me

Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 32 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

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 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/) (Snuggie) I almost bought an actual "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.

*big wish* -- A robe like this one (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/a3a42670262dc240c5598e8e52c486a4?offset=0). I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*new* -- A key fob made of fabric like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25592015) or this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21738785) or this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26315214). Or, heck, any fabric you think I'd like (cute with owls, or earthy colors, or penguins etc.)

*new* -- Something made from the JOEL DEWBERRY'S AVIARY ALMOND FABRIC. (Stuff like this wristlet (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_gallery_1&listing_id=25689723) or these potholders (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25578615) or this craft apron (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25538344) or this card holder (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22994388) etc. Pillows, aprons, anything! I am just in love with this fabric!

*new* -- A keyboard wrist support like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=19381596) Can be in any fabric/colors you think I'd like. (I need it for work where I don't have an ergonomic keyboard like I do at home.)

*new* -- A cell cozy/wristlet (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25437558) like this. I love the colors and the shape/size of this one. (My cell is a samsung messager r450 (http://www.samsung.com/us/consumer/detail/detail.do?group=mobilephones&type=mobilephones&subtype=morecarriers&model_cd=SCH-R450ZKAMTR) for size info.)

*new* -- A little zip wallet like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303612.0).

*new* -- A Disney Pin Trading Wallet like these that MissDisney (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=299888.msg3421346#msg3421346) made. I especially like the red/yellow one since it's very Mickey colored, or other Disney printed ones. (My initial is "M") This would be great for carrying around my pins to trade at the parks!!

*new* -- Some Fabric buckets (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303865.0) like this or like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=307117.0) to store and tote around craft supplies.

Knitting

*big wish* -- This scarf in these type of earthy, natural colors (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=144573.msg1422950#msg1422950). (If it were in a mix of teal blue and chocolate brown that would work too.) 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.)


Other

*new* -- Embroidered pillow cases or Quilted/decorated pillow cases. Here's the thing. I have standard pillow forms that I got for the new comforter set's shams. BUT...it's too heavy to use in summer. So right now I have no decorative pillows for my bed. If you rather do square pillows, that's cool, I can buy some blanks. If you can do standard size, that's awesome because mine are sitting around doing nothing at the moment. My summer comforter is a beige with a blue-grey and brown pattern. I can give pics if you want. But I'm open to ideas. (Ideas might be something like this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25276593) or this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25467079) for embroidery but those are just ideas.)

*new*  -- Hand carved rubber stamps Especially cute/quirky things based on my likes/wist. I like natural things (like trees, flowers, birds, etc.) too. Really, I'm just crap at making them myself and there are so many cute ones out there.

  -- 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. I have a wall of sliding glass doors and a balcony to show things off.

 -- 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)

 -- 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 style (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vt_related_1&listing_id=23838665). It's SO pretty. (I love the brown leather.)

 -- 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.

 -- 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.)

 -- Wisty surprises! Look at my wists (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns) or my amazon 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
 
*new* -- Rubber stamp pads and/or rubber stamp markers. I've gotten a pretty cool collection of stamps but I have no ink pads for them!

 -- 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.


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

My name is Beth and I’m a chubby 25 year old living in western Michigan. I’m a graduate student in biology working with algae and insects in streams. I love all things sciency and naturey. I’m trying to green up my lifestyle and make/buy handmade clothing, cleaning and bath supplies etc… I am married to an awesomely crafty man who likes homemade stuff as much as me. I live with 3 cats in a tiny apartment and have no allergies. I like most colors but no neons or pastels, and red tends to be my favorite. I tend to opt for organic or linen fabric that has gone through little to no bleaching. With that said I’m a nut for Amy Butler and Heather Ross type bold designs as well. I am pretty easy to please. PM me if you have any questions!


Crafts:
Anything from my  Wist  (http://www.wists.com/bethwalker) is welcome.
-A long wrap skirt (this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=24570617) gives an idea of the length)

like a lot of you craftsters,  i also have crafting a.d.d..  i'll give anything a shot once. i really like bright/bold colors, and HATE pastels or anything too girly like butterflies and hearts (but i do like anatomical hearts). i love retro prints and styles, especially mod. i am very turned off by synthetic scents, but love natural ones and essential oils (EXCEPT patchouli or sandalwood). i love kitsch and have a very quirky and sometimes inappropriate sense of humor. check out my profile and wist for plenty of ideas!
the stuff in orange i would REALLY love

-a wallet/billfold, mine was recently stolen. i like the kind that has a couple slots for cc's and a big bill pocket. for example, i like these ones- http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20268720,   http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26811851&ref=sr_list_19&&ga_search_query=amy+butler+wallet&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=3&order=date_desc&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title

Post by: rlynn on June 25, 2009 04:42:06 AM
I claim skaborsk for resin tea bangles

this is my 7th claim, 4 received, 2 outstanding.

My name is Robin and I live in Oregon.  I am married to Phil, a fantastic cook who spoils me with delicious meals.  We have a one year old daughter named Aria who is the most rambunctious and curious little child that I know.  I am a feminist who is trying to raise my daughter to be anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobic…anything (surprises are nice) that supports these ideas will be greatly loved.

I am a wee bit eccentric when it comes to my likes and dislikes.  I am all over the board, I like whimsical, edgy, bohemian, steampunk, pretty, bold, soft, hard…I wear a lot of black and grey, but I’ve been cautiously branching out into the wondrous color wheel lately.  Heh.  I love fun color combinations like red and turquoise.  I do not like neon or Easter egg pastel colors.  I prefer rich, deep jewel tones the best.  I like images of dandelions, squirrels, birds (ravens, peacocks, and cranes especially), leaves, and trees, but I also really like skulls (not cutesy ones just plain ole skulls or even a tad more colorful like the skulls of Día de los Muertos), anatomy, skeletons (especially of birds and other non-human creatures), and old locomotives.  You can check out my wist to get a better idea of what I like.

Some of my wishes (BIG wishes in bold)…Wisty surprises are absolutely welcome!!!

BIG NOTE: My wist is very organized (I make sure everything is tagged) and updated frequently, so it should be fairly easy to check it out and see if there' something there you can make...lots of jewelry and some hair doodads, plus craft books.

CRAFTS

Knitted and crocheted crafts

*knitted handwarmers (no idea what measurements are needed here…PM me…I do have fairly small hands though for my height, wrist size 6 inches) -thanks, oneredboot!

Steampunk is fine, please check out the gallery to see what Atsuko made me though! : )

*I also love wide cuffs (leather or metal or even fabric) like this
http://www.handmadefinds.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/cuff.jpg or this http://www.timelyjewels.com/cb140full.JPG or this http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2091/1517196417_30011118ed.jpg

I claim rlynn for a doll for Aria

This is claim #5 for me: 1 outstanding, 1 in transit, 3 received

I am Nicole, 28 year old full time SAHM to my 17 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:

* Handpainted wool yarn!!  Any kind of colorway is good, but I especially like the rainbow ones.
* Knitted or crocheted wool longies, shorties, or skirty for my munchkin – PM me for exact measurements, but she’s pretty much a medium
* Headbands for the munchkin like these: http://www.sweetbabybowtique.com/catalog.php?category=96
* Yoga skirt like this one: http://wists.com/6a3f325dcfa1a05b96d4c8f2e1d66085?q=skirt&offset=0 – PM me for sizing info
* Cloth pads
* Vintage-y decorated tshirts, size L (I like the longer styles of tshirts) Examples on my wists
* Knit socks – any color/yarn is great!
* Re-usable sandwich wraps or snack bags thanks, stitch81!
* Everyday cloth napkins – a set of 6 would be great, my kitchen is sage green, kind of a French country feel   
* Placemats to match my kitchen would be great!
* Monster hat or newsboy hat for my munchkin, examples on my wists
* Hobo style purse/bag with pockets
* Laundry apron to hold the clothespins while I hang the laundry on the line
* Yummy handspun yarn goodness
* Penguin, owl, cat, or octopus amigurumi or stuffy, or any kind, really: thanks everyone!  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! thanks 1boy1girl1kitty2!
* Handthrown/handpainted pottery – a tea pot or cup/saucer set 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 http://wists.com/musicalmama
* Hooded scarf - knitted, this pattern http://wists.com/musicalmama/a9c6576c627a40e4a0f6347b0d987717?offset=0

Supplies:

**Snap pliers for resin/plastic snaps
* Resin/plastic snaps (mostly white, but other colors are good)
* Hand painted wool yarn
* 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!)

* Needle felting kit – I would love to learn this! thanks oneredboot!

Post by: JanelleJ on June 27, 2009 08:02:48 AM
I'm going to claim teachingjonah for a few felt needle books.

This is my fourth claim, three sent, two received

My name is Janelle and I'm in Illinois, USA. I'm a stay-at-home mommy to two wonderful children. Izak is three, and Lailah was born this January. I am a lover of all crafts, so I'm super easy to please. My very favorite colors are chartreuse, gray, chocolate brown, deep aqua and green. I am allergic to cats, but crafts from homes that have a cat don't seem to really bother me. I'm not allergic to smoke, but I would rather things didn't smell of it. Right now I mostly crochet and make jewelry, but I dabble in polymer clay and paper crafts. I can knit a rectangle in garter stitch, and thats about it. The next craft that I want to learn is resin. I just love the look of those bangles! Thanks in advance for claiming me.

Crafts
Anything from my wists. http://www.wists.com/JanelleJ
A T-shirt like this https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_05902.JPG for my son in 4/5. He really likes Plex (the yellow robot), but is a huge fan on the show so he will be super happy with any of these.
A fabric bucket
Banana cream butter stick!
A small zippered makeup bag
Re-usable swiffer pads
Hand painted ceramic mugs. Maybe something 40s or 50s themed, octopus, whale, nature themed, cherry blossom, etc.
Crafty onesies for my little girl (size 3-6 mos) or crafty T-shirts for my little boy (4T or 4/5). Surprise me!
Hair accessories for my daughter. Clips, headbands, etc. I really like the kind that aren't baby/pastel colors that I could find anywhere.
Birds nest pendant
Any kind of dangling earrings. I'm an earring fanatic!
Any vintage inspired jewelry
Any Steampunk jewelry
Carrot, octopus, whale, tree or umbrella themed surprise!
A crocheted or knitted hat with a brim for my son. He is three-years-old and generally wears size 4/5 in clothing. I can measure his head if you PM me.
Any personified fruits/veggies (kid friendly). I already have a pear, an orange and a lemon.
Anything to display in my African-themed living room
Bag made of some funky fabric--long straps please
Nursing cover, also of funky fun fabric
Charms for charm bracelet, maybe veggies
Anything Final Fantasy themed for my husband
Anything Thomas the Tank Engine themed for my son. His favorite train is Percy (green), but he likes them all. (can be toys or room decor because his room is decorated in Thomas stuff)

Crochet hook roll
An altered jewelry box
Russian nesting dolls made of any medium (felt, fabric, wood, etc.)
Any resin pendants or bangles. I really like the ones with tea inside, glitter, yarn or various objects from nature
An altered book journal
A boppy pillow cover for a girl. free sewing pattern here: http://sewityourself.googlepages.com/
A CD holder book thing to hold DVDs and PS3 games. Can just be a plain, store bought CD holder that you've decorated somehow.
Diaper covers for my daughter 3-6 mos, 6-9 mos
Legwarmers for my daughter
Any homemade soaps, lotions, lip balms or other bath and body products. I love most all scents, especially citrus-y but not minty
An apron, full or waist. I think I want to start a collection of these.
Wall art for my bathroom. The colors in there are orange, sage green, chocolate and tan. Any theme.
Scarves! I prefer sewn scarves over knitted/crocheted ones because I can knit or crochet them myself.



Supplies

Tumbled stones/beads
Embroidery hoops
Embroidery floss
Jewelry making supplies or findings
Any type of tools or molds(used is fine with me) to use in working with polymer clay
Polymer clay in any color, especially white or gray
Yarn (any color, weight, etc.) I can never ever ever have enough. (no novelty yarn, though  Wink)
Any kind of beads. The funkier the better!
Safety eyes---any kind
Fabric paint, markers or dye
Wire. Any color, and gauge, any amount. I'm really in need of larger gauge wire, but I use a lot of all kinds.

Thanks again to those who have already claimed me, and whoever claims me next!

I'd like to claim claire313 for a wisty surprise + some supplies!

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


A little about me:  I live in North Carolina with my husband, giant dog and three cats.  By day, I'm the manager of a busy locally-owned business and by night, a person who is content to curl up at home with my knitting and a good movie (kung fu or Jane Austen, please).   My favorite color is green but browns and mustard yellows are close seconds.  I enjoy a good glass of wine at the end of the day, arugula and goat cheese salads and driving with my air conditioning on and all the windows open.

Handspun yarn.

Black legwarmers -- I've got a pair in green, thanks to addicted2knitting, and I wear them all the time. Perhaps another pair in my collection would be nice. :)

I'd really like to make a rag rug this year -- any worn out t-shirts in greens or browns, the softer the better, would be really useful (I think? I've never made one of these before!)

Acrylic yarns suitable for baby/charity knitting.  Any color is fine, but brighter ones are usually more useful. :)

Worsted weight, 100% wool yarns.

Hemp/linen/organic cotton yarns -- anything earth friendly, recycled, unusual fibers, etc.

I claim lapoli for a cowl and acrylic yarn!

I am 19 and live in Virginia Beach, Virginia until fall when I go back to Fredericksburg for my second year of college. My style is pretty haphazard--I never coordinate anything, so my decorating style is whatever I like, all cobbled together. I love bold prints and art deco and fun colors, but I'm not a fan of pink or orange. I love dark colors, like maroon and navy. I knit like a fiend (almost constantly) and also crochet, sew, and dabble in paper craft and jewelry-making. I really want to learn spinning, weaving, and soapmaking, just to add to my crafty repertoire. I have cats and a dog, but they all stay out of my crafting supplies, but I don't have any allergies. PM with any questions!


Crafts:

-   Throw pillows (quilted, embroidered, knitted, whatever)
-   Handspun yarn
-   Beaded or poly clay stitch markers
-   Reusable sandwich wrap (you know, the oil cloth ones)
-   Felted soap
-   Zipper bags for storing random things (any size, really)
-   Hand-carved stamps. Pretty much anything as I have pretty much none.
-      Framed art for my boring dorm room (drawing, painting, embroidery... anything really.)
-   Anything from my wists

Supplies

-   Roving/Top for spinning (combed or carded) Could always use more!
-   BUTTONS (I have a minor obsession)
-   Yarn (natural fibers only, please), especially greens (like, forest or kelly), any weight
-   Thread (any color)
-   Machine sewing needles (I go through them so quickly) regular, but also LEATHER.
-   Kool-Aid/dye for yarn/roving
-   Swift. You can even make it out of clothes hangers and a lazy susan—I just won’t ever get around to it myself.
-   Rotary Cutter mat (I have the cutter; just need the mat)
-   Awesome fabric (cotton, or some other non-stretchy kind)
-   Ephemera
-   Pretty scrapbook paper
-      Cardstock
-   An x-acto knife/blades
-   STAMPS. Pretty much anything as I have pretty much none.
-   Stamp Pads. See above note.

Extras

Knitting books, especially "Fitted Knit" (for others, please pm first)
Paper crafting/card making books
I'll never say no to chocolate or candies, especially gummies.

Geckochan has still not received her package from me so I am going to provide proof of shipping here as well as show what I sent. I really hope it still arrives at some point...

There are 5 pantyliners made with hand-dyed (by me) organic bamboo fleece, backed with regular fleece and the soaker is made with ZORB. I also sent along a few tsps each of my two favourite loose leaf teas; cherry rose sancha and pina colada.

Tops:
Backs:
Receipt:

It's sad to think of these lovely pads lost out there somewhere with noone to love them :(
