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 ORGANIZER 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 59.

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: where applicable
-  no dc number: failed to comply with the rule about using a confirmation number for packages within their own country
- didn't post pictures: failed to post pictures of what they received without an adequate explanation to their partner


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, receives and approval.

I claim padfoot for a rainbow of fat quarters!  I was hoping I'd get signed up in time to do that  ;D

1st claim, 0 sent, 0 received

About me: I am 38.  Married, with 2 girls: DD1 is 7 years old, DD2 turns a year old in August!  We have a dog, 2 cats, and fish.  I work at home as a programmer (but I am on a hiatus from work until DD2 starts preschool, or sleeping through the night LOL).  I spend my free time making art quilts, trying various techniques (dyeing, screenprinting, etc), and studying art. 
My favourite colours are purple, blue, pink, green, and all variety of earth tones. 
I love nature and natural designs, retro, and modern.

I am in Ontario, Canada.

My wist (http://www.wists.com/gatheredthreads)

crafts - MOST WANTED
hand carved rubber stamps (nature inspired, or patterns or symbols)
Ocean/sea creature wall art for DD2’s room, in bright colours
Poppet for DD2 (embroidered eyes, please) - examples (http://wists.com/gatheredthreads/poppet)
altered art of my girls examples (http://wists.com/gatheredthreads/altered)
a nursing necklace so DD2 will leave my eyeglasses alone examples (http://wists.com/gatheredthreads/nursing)
knitted baby sweater (size 2) examples (http://wists.com/gatheredthreads/baby)
Dr Who shirt for DH (3XL) - Blink is his favourite episode
t-shirt for me (nature inspired) size 2XL

crafts
something from my wist (http://www.wists.com/gatheredthreads)
coloured pencil roll (to hold 24 pencils)
sketch pencil roll (for 12 pencils, small ruler, eraser)
sketchbook cover (I ultimately need 2 or 3 of these) - I still need to check dimensions *****
handspun yarn
Baby clothes, particularly pants with matching onesie or shirt (18 month size)
Felt food toys (nothing super small, i.e. choking size)
Other baby toys (if you have some good ideas)
Shirt for DD1, in size L (14/16) (she loves dogs, and Super Mario)
bright plushie monsters for both girls
water bottle holder for DD1 (I can give you the bottle size)

general inspirations for any craft
Anything you are good at, and enjoy making!  With a small disclaimer:  I don't have a lot of space, so things that can be used are fantastic.  A new apron? I'd love one!  Potholders, dishcloths, placemats, decorative storage boxes, all of these would be used and loved.  As would many other things, too!
Something to celebrate my name!  A few years ago I legally changed my name to Dahlia
Something inspired by a sugar skull robot - the only example I have is a picture of a tattoo lol http://www.zhippo.com/NateBeaversHOSTED/images/gallery/nate%20beavers-robo%20skull-gallery1.jpg
Something inspired by the Vintage Fairies at www.sallyjean.com  I love the creative fairy with the saying "sometimes there was a storm in her brain".  I also love the art fairies with the saying "I must make art".
Something inspired by the Salvador Dali quote in my siggie, or the Van Gogh quote "I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate"
Something inspired by the animal axolotl http://www.bogleech.com/pkmn-axolotl.jpg
Something sushi themed

craft supplies
single-ply thin white crochet cotton (I cannot find this around here, only 2-ply)
upholstery thread or button thread
recycled sari yarn or any other unique yarn
fabrics from around the world (kimono silks, african dyes & batiks, etc)
sheer fabrics for layering on wallhangings - nets, tulles, scrims, gauzes, etc. white, coloured, patterned, any would be good!
100% cotton fabrics
100% cotton machine quilting threads
any quilt magazines (except for Quilting Arts) you no longer want/need!
any art quilt books (I have Surfaces for Stitch by Gwen Hedley, but that's it)

extras
dark chocolate, particularly flavored dark chocolate
ginger anything
spicy candies

Thank you!

I'm going to claim gatheredthreads for something wisty-inspired. There's a few items on there I like and would like making but I'm not sure which one specifically yet, so I'll leave it a surprise. ;D

Claim #1 of 3 / 0 sent / 0 received

About Me
33 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) or earth tones (like greens/browns together).
  • My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy.
  • My favorite colors for shirts/clothes are browns, greens, purples, and both heather and charcoal greys.
  • I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together
  • I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.)
  • My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes.
  • My favorite flower is the Daffodil.
  • My favorite hobbies include: reading, 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.

Crafty Wishes

 ;D = BIG WISH!

Sewing

--  ;D ;D Wrap-style pants for me! I love this type here (http://laupre.wordpress.com/2008/06/29/easy-breezy-wrap-pants-tutorial/). (tutorial on link) I'm a US size 4 (or equivalent) with a tiny 29" total inseam (yes, short legs!) Approx 28x29 measurements. Capri, or full-length is fine with me! Other examples are here (http://www.bobaymark.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=28_30&products_id=872), here (http://www.bobaymark.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=28_31&products_id=146), and here (http://www.etsy.com/listing/47075606/stand-out-in-the-crowd-white-wide-leg). Thanks Claire! You've inspired me to want more in other colors! *laughs*

 -- Wrap-style pants for my guy! Same concept as above (http://laupre.wordpress.com/2008/06/29/easy-breezy-wrap-pants-tutorial/) but maybe a little more manly/unisex and full-length. (He's a 36x30) Cotton fabric probably best. We saw wrap pants like this in Epcot and he wanted a pair for himself. (He keeps asking me why no one has made him a pair yet!  :D )

 --  ;D 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) or this wallet (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=41812950), or this purse (http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=27792322) etc. Pillows, aprons, anything! I am just in love with this fabric!

   -- A Day Tote/Weekender Bag. There's not a thing I don't love about this one (http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/products/item/Miranda_Day_Bag/221/p2c50) for example, but it could be in different fabrics of similar colors for example. It looks sturdy and says it has pockets and the shape is really lovely. I also really like this one (http://wkdesigner.wordpress.com/2009/01/17/the-weekender/) which would be a lovely weekender bag since I don't own any luggage. And of course, Amy Butler's pattern  (http://www.amybutlerdesign.com/products/patterns_display.php?id=22) is neat but it wouldn't have to be in her fabric.

 -- A Handlebar Bag for my bike like this concept (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/098a03ff2450067750f510855d11a987?offset=0). Doesn't have to be that fabric or anything, but I like the style. My bike is a Trek 15" unisex hybrid in black with silver accents.

 -- Fabric buckets like this! (http://www.wists.com/34a59c6cec193c53d3756df1d7e4bb0c?q=sewing&offset=20) I have a great project bag now I use for my jewelry tools, but...I could use another! (Or more!) I do most of my beading/crafting on the couch and it's nice to stash things away in something like this.

 -- Table Top Ironing Mat like THIS (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/05a4b89ab8515fe3dee995d1d79ad940?offset=0). I don't always have room to pull my full ironing board out but I usually have space on my counter or table. So this is brilliant!

 -- Cute "Rockabilly" Style Dress I LOVE this style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/eb267c792fd017b380bac7d99b4f803f?offset=0) but obviously in adult size. And no pink please, it doesn't look good on me. I wear a US size 4 and could send more specific measurements too. I just love how fun and flirty it is!

 --  ;D A Cozy Winter Summer Wrap like this thread (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=332604.0) BUT lightweight. I have the most awesome warm version already but I'd love a lighter weight version for wearing in chilly air conditioning like at work as well. It's hot outside but sometimes a touch chilly inside. Not enough for a jacket, but enough your arms are a little cold.  (tutorial here (http://www.urbanthreads.com/pages?id=502)) Some neutral color/pattern (grey, white, beige, etc.) would probably be easiest to wear a lot.

 -- Kitchenaid Stand Mixer Cover. I've got a few examples of ones I like here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/mixer). Mine's the "Classic" style.

 -- Greek Goddess Halloween Costume like this (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/sewing/276ac619a0c267c3b4c8c4443296592f?offset=0). Yes, it's a bit early but I LOVE this costume and it would be awesome to have it made for me and my measurements instead of buying one off the shelf that never fits! ;)

 -- A simple robe. I really like this style (http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=853506). Doesn't have to be exactly like that but I like the Japanese/Asian/Cherry Blossom influence, but it could be other colors/patterns that I like as well. Doesn't need to be form-fitting, can be a little roomy just not too oversized. (A little roomy is fine.) I'm generally a US size 4.

 -- A Lapboard I really need a new one. Something comfy so I can use my heavy laptop on the couch more comfortably. I like this one (http://www.etsy.com/listing/46361618/super-jumbo-faux-leather-lap-desk) a lot but it wouldn't have to be that exact color/fabric. Just the style is really useful.



Knitting

 --  ;D Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. There are some wisted here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/socks) for inspiration. (And yes, thick ones for around the house are perfect too!)

 -- A shrug like this style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/fdf27d12d6e6b3ef93fdb8dd3f12e91a?offset=0) (Or another example (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/f71e9358c9d80a65328a94cc8e39f77b?offset=0).) Could be in a self-striping in any color I like (blues, purples, greens, greys, browns, etc.) or solid. It's the style and idea I really like. I'm flexible on the color/pattern.

 -- A cable knit bag (http://garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=98&d_id=54&lang=en). I really like cable knit and I think this bag is really cool.



Other

 --  ;D ;D Phoenix-colored Necklace just like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/45516283/sale-candleflame-red-topaz-songea). I LOVE LOVE LOVE this piece. It's beautiful colors, it's in silver, it's just perfect. I so want this. Yes, I make jewelry but it'd be nice to have something beautiful like this made for me for a change! ;)

 --  ;D Hand-Dyed / "Shibori-Dyed" Fitted Tee Shirts Like above, short sleeve, 3/4 or long sleeve is fine so long as it''s fitted. I like styles like THESE (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/tie_dye) in my wists. I especially love the flame style one but really like this type of look a lot. It''s different from the shirts I typically wear and I like that. (Please just no hippie/Grateful Dead rainbow style tie dye. Nothing against hippies but it's just not my personal preference.)

-- Fitted Style Tee Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. Fitted, size small or US 4 equivalent. I have received a ton and I love them but I also live in fitted tees and more are always welcome. I have a bunch of styles I love WISTED (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/shirt) for inspiration.

 --  ;D Something stained glass - sun catcher, nightlight, glass mosaic item, etc. Anything! 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 would love to put up something pretty there! (HERE (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/stained_glass) are some I've wisted for inspiration/ideas.)

 -- 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.

 --  ;D Ceramic/pottery tea mug, oversized mug, or cereal bowl (I eat cereal every single day!) or anything like that. Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (HERE (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/pottery) are a couple things I've wisted for inspiration.)

 -- Anything with a phoenix. 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 (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/phoenix) as inspiration.

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

 -- Something with owls. I love owls, especially snowy and great horned owls.

 -- 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, or my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like.



Craft Supplies
 
--  ;D ;D Jewelry Presentation Displays I have one in black but I need a necklace one in WHITE for photographing my work. I could also use a necklace/earring combo and a bracelet hand. These are styles I like and could REALLY use:
 - Simple Necklace: Display, necklace, leatherette, white, 10x8 inches (http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?PN=H202519PK)
 - Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, necklace/earring, frosted acrylic (http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?PN=H201424PK)
 - Another Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, Venus figure, opaque white, 12 x 8-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches (http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?PN=H201518PK)
 - Ring/Bracelet Display, acrylic, clear frosted, 7-1/4 x 4-1/2 x 3 inch hand (http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?PN=H201463PK)

 --  ;D A Red/Orange/Yellow stamp ink pad. Like the "shade of orange" one on this page (http://www.stampin.com/online/accs/pads.htm#blendingblox) or the "foliage" pad here (http://www.stampin.com/online/accs/pads.htm#bigandjuicy). I'd love to have something in that blended color for easy inking of my PhoenixFire Designs return address stamp.

 -- ;D ;D Gemstone Beads I'd love to start using more faceted, briolette and other cut stones. Here are some I really am coveting.
(Listings shown are just for example of the stone.)
 -Chrome Diopside Beads - Especially teardrops or briolettes. Also small rondelles would be nice. example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380236149095) or example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380232646490).
 - Mexican Fire Opal Rondelle Beads - example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/41567690/genuine-mexican-fire-opal-faceted) or example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170334876934)
 - Sapphire Rondelle Beads - In a red/orange/yellow combo. example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290441853564) and example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320536039426)
 - Any gems on my Etsy favorites - Bunches listed here (http://www.etsy.com/your/favorite/listings)

-- 24gauge Artistic Wire in Silver - It's my favorite wire. You can find it here (http://www.artbeads.com/awr24svr10.html?cmp=amazon&zmam=24751123&zmas=1&zmac=11&zmap=AWR24SVR10). I pretty much always need this.

 -- A sewing basket. You know, classic little box with a handle to store my growing collection of threads, notions, scissors, etc. Like this idea/ (http://www.amazon.com/Prym-Square-Sewing-Basket-Z10213B1/dp/B002762QFM) or this one (http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?CATID=cat3527&PRODID=xprd1130580). Doesn't have to be that fabric or anything but that idea. Right now, all my stuff is just piled up in a mess on my desk.

  -- Mini Cake Pans (http://www.amazon.com/Chicago-Metallic-4-cup-Nonstick-Multi-Tier/dp/B00188HVXW/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I3OFRGI36T2KOL&colid=397IKAEGOJ51E). How cute are these? I don't know that I *need* them per se, but they're just so darn fun.

 -- Lampwork beads. Love. Wish I could make but I''m too scared of open flame. :D

 -- Dichroic Glass Beads I love this mix (http://www.artbeads.com/dich-mix1.html) for example. So pretty!

 -- 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. Also any 16, 22 or 24 gauge wire is in any color is always useful.

 -- Resin Starter Kit I've been curious to try these so something to get started (resin, molds, etc.) would be fun.

 -- Glass Pendant Kit I really like this one (http://www.etsy.com/listing/49081334/jewelry-kit-to-make-pendants-or-charms) (because the copper foil tape and such is cool) but also just a starter kit like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50435724/learn-to-make-this-pendant-pendant) would be good too. It doesn't have to be a ready-made kit, just the supplies would be helpful. I've made Scrabble tile pendants but not glass for lack of materials.

 -- Flat-back Pendant Bails for use in Scrabble Tile/Glass pendants and related. Like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/49877080/50-silvertone-jewelry-pendant-bails-sale).

 -- Jewelry Hammer and Anvil Set Now that I'm working with wire more, I'd love a jewelry hammer and anvil to flatten my wire and shape it with more control. Hammer example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/42174148/8-oz-ball-pein-hammer-perfect-for-making) and anvil example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50368316/metal-steel-anvil-bench-block-for). Obviously a mini anvil! ;)


Extras
-- Tea! Especially fruity ones. (Caffeinated ones are fine too for my morning cup at work!)
 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.
 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)
 -- Pineapple anything so long as it does NOT have coconut in it. (Candy, snacks, candles, body spray, etc.) Finding pure, straight pineapple is so hard!
 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)
 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! ;D

I claim babalina58 for a wisty surprise

1st claim, 0 sent, 0 received

Hi! My name is Michelle and I live in North Carolina. I am a 29yr old SAHM to a 4yr old girl. I love crafting especially for others. My current favorite colors are black and natural/earthy colors, especially greens. I like harry potter, buffy the vampire slayer, historical romances, and organic foods.  
 
Would love anything off my list but big wishes are in bold.

I claim babalina for some fabric for dresses for her granddaughter.  I'm going to try painting some for you; one of a kind!

this is claim 2, 0 sent, 0 received

About me: I am 38.  Married, with 2 girls: DD1 is 7 years old, DD2 turns a year old in August!  We have a dog, 2 cats, and fish.  I work at home as a programmer (but I am on a hiatus from work until DD2 starts preschool, or sleeping through the night LOL).  I spend my free time making art quilts, trying various techniques (dyeing, screenprinting, etc), and studying art. 
My favourite colours are purple, blue, pink, green, and all variety of earth tones. 
I love nature and natural designs, retro, and modern.

I am in Ontario, Canada.

My wist (http://www.wists.com/gatheredthreads)

general inspirations for any craft
Anything you are good at, and enjoy making!  With a small disclaimer:  I don't have a lot of space, so things that can be used are fantastic.  A new apron? I'd love one!  Potholders, dishcloths, placemats, decorative storage boxes, all of these would be used and loved.  As would many other things, too!
Something to celebrate my name!  A few years ago I legally changed my name to Dahlia
Something inspired by a sugar skull robot - the only example I have is a picture of a tattoo lol http://www.zhippo.com/NateBeaversHOSTED/images/gallery/nate%20beavers-robo%20skull-gallery1.jpg

I claim gatheredthreads for a baby sweater! And probably a little something else.

This is my first claim for this round.

I am 20 and I am currently home for the summer in Virginia Beach, VA (USA). 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, spin, and dabble in paper craft. I really want to learn weaving just to add to my crafty repertoire. I have cats and a dog at home, but not at school, and they all stay out of my crafting supplies. I don't have any allergies. PM with any questions!


Crafts:

So I moving into a university-owned apartment this school year, so what I need most are apartment things:

- A key bowl to stick by the door
- Pot holders/trivets (I love quilted ones)
- Oven mitts
-   Framed art for my boring dorm room APARTMENT! (drawing, painting, embroidery... anything really.) House, Grey's Anatomy, knitting, Futurama, or Battlestar Galactica-themed would all be awesome, as well as various generic snark, hilarity, or pretty-ness. I have some favorite quotes too, so pm if you want more specifics.
- Ceramic mugs/bowls/dishes. Pottery is one craft I know I'll probably not get the chance to do, so I love looking at other people's.
- Other homey type things I've probably forgotten (but pm first to make sure)

Here's the rest of my list:

- Padded laptop sleeve for Norah, my macbook. Not really picky as to material, but if it's argyle, I'll love you forever.
- **Big wish** A nice handbag. There are a couple of examples of my style on my wists. Something fairly plain in shape in a solid color or fun print. Fairly large (I carry everything with me), crossbody strap, lots of pockets.
-  Summer skirts. Elastic waist, about 50 cm hip to hem, a-line or flowy in something light, like a linen or a seersucker or something.
-  Weekender bag (the necessarily THE weekender bag, but a bag for traveling)
-   Handspun yarn
-   Hand-carved stamps. Pretty much anything as I have pretty much none.
-   Shawl pins/brooches.
- Something (pillow, zipper bag, but not tee cause I have one) with “Team Tyler's Van” on it.



Supplies

-   Roving/Top for spinning (combed or carded)
-   Zippers (any length, regular or separating, invisible or visible, any color)
-   Large buttons, preferably in sets of at least four.
-   Yarn (natural fibers only, please), especially greens (like, forest or kelly) and blues or neutrals, any weight
-   Lino carving tool thing (for carving stamps)
-   Large erasers or rubber base thingies for carving stamps
-   Thread (any color)
-   Machine sewing needles (I go through them so quickly) regular, but also leather/denim.
-   Kool-Aid/dye for yarn/roving
-   Rotary Cutter mat (I have the cutter; just need the mat)
-   Awesome fabric--abstract/geometric prints, swirls, Amy Butler-esque, or linen. I love linen. (Linen-look cotton is also great)
-   An x-acto knife/blades
-   Stamps, especially words/greetings.
-   Stamp Pads.
-   Resin kit
-   Purse handles (especially longish ones)
-  Felt (acrylic or wool, I don't mind either)
-  Shrinky dink plastic or #6 plastic
-  Wooly Nylon (for carrying along with sock yarn that doesn't have nylon or mohair)


Extras

Knitting/crocheting books (but pm first)
Paper crafting/card making books
Sewing books/magazines
Back issues of Interweave Knits, Knit1, Knit Simple or Vogue Knitting (or any other knit mags; please pm)
I'll never say no to chocolate or candies, especially gummies.

I claim Juicebox29  for arm warmers and buttons!

Hi! I'm Dana. I'm 27 years old and live in Boston. I work three jobs: case manager for elderly, counselor for teens, and manager of an improv theatre. I love knitting and am planning on figuring out how to crochet. My favorite colors/combos are: teal/brown/orange, yellow/orange, purple. I do not like white (especially for clothes) because I am clumsy and messy. I have a big fat kitty that loves cat nip. For fabrics I love vintage fabrics, gingham, fruit fabrics, and some asian prints (like cherry blossoms, but not symbols). I am not a fan or skulls. I love owls, birds, koi fish, nintendo, and sunkist soda.

I claim Edie22 for supplies and a wisty-inspired surprise! Star Trek quote pillowcases!

Claim 1, 0 sent, 0 received

Hi, my name is Jessica, and I’m really excited to be joining this swap!  I’m 26, and I live in New York City, but I’m from West Virginia originally.  One word to describe me is “comfortable”.  I am girly – I love pink and I read Twilight and watch The Vampire Diaries, but I’m also vulgar, and sarcastic as hell.  I can’t knit, crochet, or sew, so if you can please make me something awesome that I can’t make myself!  My boyfriend John and I live together with our 3 cats in an apartment where a zombie Jesus piñata hangs in our living room corner, and a wall full of bookshelves is filled with all sorts of horror movies, from the really good to the really bad.  John is also into Sci-Fi, but me not so much (Fringe, however, is awesome.)  I’m a big fan of anything quirky, I love musicals, and I rue the day Veronica Mars was canceled!
 
Thank you so much in advance for claiming me!

Big wishes in BOLD

Yay! Just the kind of claim I love. I'm claiming YumJello01 for a TOL pendant. :D

Claim #2 of 3 currently / #2 overall / 0 sent / 0 received


About Me
33 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) or earth tones (like greens/browns together).
  • My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy.
  • My favorite colors for shirts/clothes are browns, greens, purples, and both heather and charcoal greys.
  • I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together
  • I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.)
  • My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes.
  • My favorite flower is the Daffodil.
  • My favorite hobbies include: reading, 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.

Crafty Wishes

 ;D = BIG WISH!

Sewing

--  ;D ;D Wrap-style pants for me! I love this type here (http://laupre.wordpress.com/2008/06/29/easy-breezy-wrap-pants-tutorial/). (tutorial on link) I'm a US size 4 (or equivalent) with a tiny 29" total inseam (yes, short legs!) Approx 28x29 measurements. Capri, or full-length is fine with me! Other examples are here (http://www.bobaymark.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=28_30&products_id=872), here (http://www.bobaymark.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=28_31&products_id=146), and here (http://www.etsy.com/listing/47075606/stand-out-in-the-crowd-white-wide-leg). Thanks Claire! You've inspired me to want more in other colors! *laughs*

 -- Wrap-style pants for my guy! Same concept as above (http://laupre.wordpress.com/2008/06/29/easy-breezy-wrap-pants-tutorial/) but maybe a little more manly/unisex and full-length. (He's a 36x30) Cotton fabric probably best. We saw wrap pants like this in Epcot and he wanted a pair for himself. (He keeps asking me why no one has made him a pair yet!  :D )

 --  ;D 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) or this wallet (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=41812950), or this purse (http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=27792322) etc. Pillows, aprons, anything! I am just in love with this fabric!

   -- A Day Tote/Weekender Bag. There's not a thing I don't love about this one (http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/products/item/Miranda_Day_Bag/221/p2c50) for example, but it could be in different fabrics of similar colors for example. It looks sturdy and says it has pockets and the shape is really lovely. I also really like this one (http://wkdesigner.wordpress.com/2009/01/17/the-weekender/) which would be a lovely weekender bag since I don't own any luggage. And of course, Amy Butler's pattern  (http://www.amybutlerdesign.com/products/patterns_display.php?id=22) is neat but it wouldn't have to be in her fabric.

 -- A Handlebar Bag for my bike like this concept (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/098a03ff2450067750f510855d11a987?offset=0). Doesn't have to be that fabric or anything, but I like the style. My bike is a Trek 15" unisex hybrid in black with silver accents.

 -- Fabric buckets like this! (http://www.wists.com/34a59c6cec193c53d3756df1d7e4bb0c?q=sewing&offset=20) I have a great project bag now I use for my jewelry tools, but...I could use another! (Or more!) I do most of my beading/crafting on the couch and it's nice to stash things away in something like this.

-- Table Top Ironing Mat like THIS (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/05a4b89ab8515fe3dee995d1d79ad940?offset=0). I don't always have room to pull my full ironing board out but I usually have space on my counter or table. So this is brilliant! thanks babalina!

 -- Cute "Rockabilly" Style Dress I LOVE this style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/eb267c792fd017b380bac7d99b4f803f?offset=0) but obviously in adult size. And no pink please, it doesn't look good on me. I wear a US size 4 and could send more specific measurements too. I just love how fun and flirty it is!

 --  ;D A Cozy Winter Summer Wrap like this thread (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=332604.0) BUT lightweight. I have the most awesome warm version already but I'd love a lighter weight version for wearing in chilly air conditioning like at work as well. It's hot outside but sometimes a touch chilly inside. Not enough for a jacket, but enough your arms are a little cold.  (tutorial here (http://www.urbanthreads.com/pages?id=502)) Some neutral color/pattern (grey, white, beige, etc.) would probably be easiest to wear a lot.

 -- Kitchenaid Stand Mixer Cover. I've got a few examples of ones I like here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/mixer). Mine's the "Classic" style.

 -- Greek Goddess Halloween Costume like this (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/sewing/276ac619a0c267c3b4c8c4443296592f?offset=0). Yes, it's a bit early but I LOVE this costume and it would be awesome to have it made for me and my measurements instead of buying one off the shelf that never fits! ;)

 -- A simple robe. I really like this style (http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=853506). Doesn't have to be exactly like that but I like the Japanese/Asian/Cherry Blossom influence, but it could be other colors/patterns that I like as well. Doesn't need to be form-fitting, can be a little roomy just not too oversized. (A little roomy is fine.) I'm generally a US size 4.

 -- A Lapboard I really need a new one. Something comfy so I can use my heavy laptop on the couch more comfortably. I like this one (http://www.etsy.com/listing/46361618/super-jumbo-faux-leather-lap-desk) a lot but it wouldn't have to be that exact color/fabric. Just the style is really useful.



Knitting

  --  ;D Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. There are some wisted here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/socks) for inspiration. (And yes, thick ones for around the house are perfect too!)

 -- A shrug like this style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/fdf27d12d6e6b3ef93fdb8dd3f12e91a?offset=0) (Or another example (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/f71e9358c9d80a65328a94cc8e39f77b?offset=0).) Could be in a self-striping in any color I like (blues, purples, greens, greys, browns, etc.) or solid. It's the style and idea I really like. I'm flexible on the color/pattern.

 -- A cable knit bag (http://garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=98&d_id=54&lang=en). I really like cable knit and I think this bag is really cool.



Other

  --  ;D ;D Phoenix-colored Necklace just like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/45516283/sale-candleflame-red-topaz-songea). I LOVE LOVE LOVE this piece. It's beautiful colors, it's in silver, it's just perfect. I so want this. Yes, I make jewelry but it'd be nice to have something beautiful like this made for me for a change! ;)

 --  ;D Hand-Dyed / "Shibori-Dyed" Fitted Tee Shirts Like above, short sleeve, 3/4 or long sleeve is fine so long as it''s fitted. I like styles like THESE (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/tie_dye) in my wists. I especially love the flame style one but really like this type of look a lot. It''s different from the shirts I typically wear and I like that. (Please just no hippie/Grateful Dead rainbow style tie dye. Nothing against hippies but it's just not my personal preference.)

-- Fitted Style Tee Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. Fitted, size small or US 4 equivalent. I have received a ton and I love them but I also live in fitted tees and more are always welcome. I have a bunch of styles I love WISTED (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/shirt) for inspiration.

 --  ;D Something stained glass - sun catcher, nightlight, glass mosaic item, etc. Anything! 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 would love to put up something pretty there! (HERE (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/stained_glass) are some I've wisted for inspiration/ideas.)

 -- 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.

 --  ;D Ceramic/pottery tea mug, oversized mug, or cereal bowl (I eat cereal every single day!) or anything like that. Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (HERE (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/pottery) are a couple things I've wisted for inspiration.)

 -- Anything with a phoenix. 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 (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/phoenix) as inspiration.

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

 -- Something with owls. I love owls, especially snowy and great horned owls.

 -- 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, or my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like.



Craft Supplies
 
--  ;D ;D Jewelry Presentation Displays I have one in black but I need a necklace one in WHITE for photographing my work. I could also use a necklace/earring combo and a bracelet hand. These are styles I like and could REALLY use:
 - Simple Necklace: Display, necklace, leatherette, white, 10x8 inches (http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?PN=H202519PK)
 - Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, necklace/earring, frosted acrylic (http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?PN=H201424PK)
 - Another Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, Venus figure, opaque white, 12 x 8-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches (http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?PN=H201518PK)
 - Ring/Bracelet Display, acrylic, clear frosted, 7-1/4 x 4-1/2 x 3 inch hand (http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?PN=H201463PK)

 --  ;D A Red/Orange/Yellow stamp ink pad. Like the "shade of orange" one on this page (http://www.stampin.com/online/accs/pads.htm#blendingblox) or the "foliage" pad here (http://www.stampin.com/online/accs/pads.htm#bigandjuicy). I'd love to have something in that blended color for easy inking of my PhoenixFire Designs return address stamp.

 -- ;D ;D Gemstone Beads I'd love to start using more faceted, briolette and other cut stones. Here are some I really am coveting.
(Listings shown are just for example of the stone.)
 -Chrome Diopside Beads - Especially teardrops or briolettes. Also small rondelles would be nice. example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380236149095) or example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380232646490).
 - Mexican Fire Opal Rondelle Beads - example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/41567690/genuine-mexican-fire-opal-faceted) or example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170334876934)
 - Sapphire Rondelle Beads - In a red/orange/yellow combo. example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290441853564) and example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320536039426)
 - Any gems on my Etsy favorites - Bunches listed here (http://www.etsy.com/your/favorite/listings)

 -- 24gauge Artistic Wire in Silver - It's my favorite wire. You can find it here (http://www.artbeads.com/awr24svr10.html?cmp=amazon&zmam=24751123&zmas=1&zmac=11&zmap=AWR24SVR10). I pretty much always need this.

 -- A sewing basket. You know, classic little box with a handle to store my growing collection of threads, notions, scissors, etc. Like this idea/ (http://www.amazon.com/Prym-Square-Sewing-Basket-Z10213B1/dp/B002762QFM) or this one (http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?CATID=cat3527&PRODID=xprd1130580). Doesn't have to be that fabric or anything but that idea. Right now, all my stuff is just piled up in a mess on my desk.

  -- Mini Cake Pans (http://www.amazon.com/Chicago-Metallic-4-cup-Nonstick-Multi-Tier/dp/B00188HVXW/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I3OFRGI36T2KOL&colid=397IKAEGOJ51E). How cute are these? I don't know that I *need* them per se, but they're just so darn fun.

 -- Lampwork beads. Love. Wish I could make but I''m too scared of open flame. :D

 -- Dichroic Glass Beads I love this mix (http://www.artbeads.com/dich-mix1.html) for example. So pretty!

 -- 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. Also any 16, 22 or 24 gauge wire is in any color is always useful.

 -- Resin Starter Kit I've been curious to try these so something to get started (resin, molds, etc.) would be fun.

 -- Glass Pendant Kit I really like this one (http://www.etsy.com/listing/49081334/jewelry-kit-to-make-pendants-or-charms) (because the copper foil tape and such is cool) but also just a starter kit like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50435724/learn-to-make-this-pendant-pendant) would be good too. It doesn't have to be a ready-made kit, just the supplies would be helpful. I've made Scrabble tile pendants but not glass for lack of materials.

 -- Flat-back Pendant Bails for use in Scrabble Tile/Glass pendants and related. Like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/49877080/50-silvertone-jewelry-pendant-bails-sale).

 -- Jewelry Hammer and Anvil Set Now that I'm working with wire more, I'd love a jewelry hammer and anvil to flatten my wire and shape it with more control. Hammer example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/42174148/8-oz-ball-pein-hammer-perfect-for-making) and anvil example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50368316/metal-steel-anvil-bench-block-for). Obviously a mini anvil! ;)


Extras
-- Tea! Especially fruity ones. (Caffeinated ones are fine too for my morning cup at work!)
 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.
 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)
 -- Pineapple anything so long as it does NOT have coconut in it. (Candy, snacks, candles, body spray, etc.) Finding pure, straight pineapple is so hard!
 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)
 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! ;D

I claim babycakes8150 for cotton mary jane slippers.


Hi! I'm Dana. I'm 27 years old and live in Boston. I work three jobs: case manager for elderly, counselor for teens, and manager of an improv theatre. I love knitting and am planning on figuring out how to crochet. My favorite colors/combos are: teal/brown/orange, yellow/orange, purple. I do not like white (especially for clothes) because I am clumsy and messy. I have a big fat kitty that loves cat nip. For fabrics I love vintage fabrics, gingham, fruit fabrics, and some asian prints (like cherry blossoms, but not symbols). I am not a fan or skulls. I love owls, birds, koi fish, nintendo, and sunkist soda.

I claim JessySihk for supplies supplies supplies

3 Claims, 0 Sent, 0 Received

BRB with list.

Hi, my name is Jessica, and I’m really excited to be joining this swap!  I’m 26, and I live in New York City, but I’m from West Virginia originally.  One word to describe me is “comfortable”.  I am girly – I love pink and I read Twilight and watch The Vampire Diaries, but I’m also vulgar, and sarcastic as hell.  I can’t knit, crochet, or sew, so if you can please make me something awesome that I can’t make myself!  My boyfriend John and I live together with our 3 cats in an apartment where a zombie Jesus piñata hangs in our living room corner, and a wall full of bookshelves is filled with all sorts of horror movies, from the really good to the really bad.  John is also into Sci-Fi, but me not so much (Fringe, however, is awesome.)  I’m a big fan of anything quirky, I love musicals, and I rue the day Veronica Mars was canceled!

 

Thank you so much in advance for claiming me!

 

Big wishes in BOLD

I claim YumJello01 for ami and brain slugs!  (and maybe art if I'm feeling adventurous)

1 claim, 0 sent, 0 received

Hello!  I'm Sarah, and I live in western New York in the middle of nowhere with my often-gone husband and three demonspawn (ages 13, 8, and 2.5).  I have a super short attention span and have crafty ADD.  My favorite color combinations are hot pink/turquoise, black/lime green/purple, black/white, and turquoise/orange.  I really like weird stuff, the weirder the better.  My prized possessions right now are a gourd made into a shrunken head, a paper mache zombie head, and sculpted toaster with tentacles, bat wings, and a big eyeball (from madgypsy in a craftster dotee swap!).  I'm sort of zombie and robot crazy at the moment.  I'm goofy and snarky and usually relatively inappropriate for any situation.  I collect and craft with skulls.  I like toasters.  I love octopuses, squid, jellyfishies, and anything else tentacular.  I really love surprises!

This is my first time playing this swap, so I'm alternately nerved out and excited.

Crafts:

Misc:
A-line knee-length skirts size women's medium (8-10) black like these (http://www.wists.com/themuppet/skirts)) with funky designs or skull/tattoo/day of the dead/funky fabric
Wrap around skirts, same as above
Felt food for my 2.5yo - We currently have none, but I want to see if she'll actually play with it before I make a bunch!
Funky recycled sweater coat thingie like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/27054663/reserved-for-suzanne)
Cute piratey skully dresses size 3T sort of like these (http://www.wists.com/themuppet/druzie)
Large pincushion, something weird!  I currently have a little crocheted eyeball that I use for needles that squidges me out every time I put a needle in it.  Love it!
Knitted tall/knee socks (striped, especially black and white or black/lime green/purple), size 7 women’s shoe - I have pretty thick calves though, so I’ll give you a measurement if needed!
Lap blanket/throw similar to any of these (http://wists.com/themuppet/home) and/or throw pillow covers for 18"x18" pillows
Kitchy cross-stitch with slang or foul sayings (I especially like this, (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=335719.msg3882658#msg3882658) this, (http://www.etsy.com/listing/48295966/beefranck-series-006-bloody-submission?ref=v1_other_2) this, (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=334359.0) and this just because it’s robots! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/48761663/krupp-series-004-zap?ref=v1_other_2))  These may be considered NSFW, so clicky at your own risk!
Reusable grocery bags
Anything inspired by anything on my wist (http://wists.com/themuppet)

Stuffed/crocheted/knitted/sewn toys:
anything with tentacles
shark
fish
anything from the Mario world
zombies!
Robots!

Craft Supplies:
worsted weight cotton or cotton blend yarn
worsted weight undyed wool yarn
any color of Caron Super Soft
Bernat Satin Sport yarn in white, black, or aqua
merino or alpaca roving
gears any size
copper wire any guage
anatomical rubber stamps (especially a heart/head/skull)
felt
citric acid
felting needles and one of those multi-needle holder thingies

Extras:
Crobots (http://www.amazon.com/Crobots-20-Amigurumi-Robots-Make/dp/0740778277/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1278784416&sr=8-1)
Comic books from any era, any publisher, any condition (I'm just going to cut them up)
Weird rusty things
clean skulls, real..especially small ones (birds and small rodents).. I figured no one would fill this, but you never know!

Post by: phoenixfiredesigns on July 14, 2010 01:02:46 PM
AH HA! There you are! I've been waiting for you to come around again! I'm claiming lindyv321 for a birthstone/initial bracelet PM for stones and initials.

Claim #3 of 3 currently / #3 overall / 1 sent / 0 received


About Me
33 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) or earth tones (like greens/browns together).
  • My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy.
  • My favorite colors for shirts/clothes are browns, greens, purples, and both heather and charcoal greys.
  • I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together
  • I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.)
  • My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes.
  • My favorite flower is the Daffodil.
  • My favorite hobbies include: reading, 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.

Crafty Wishes

 ;D = BIG WISH!

Sewing

--  ;D ;D Wrap-style pants for me! I love this type here (http://laupre.wordpress.com/2008/06/29/easy-breezy-wrap-pants-tutorial/). (tutorial on link) I'm a US size 4 (or equivalent) with a tiny 29" total inseam (yes, short legs!) Approx 28x29 measurements. Capri, or full-length is fine with me! Other examples are here (http://www.bobaymark.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=28_30&products_id=872), here (http://www.bobaymark.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=28_31&products_id=146), and here (http://www.etsy.com/listing/47075606/stand-out-in-the-crowd-white-wide-leg). Thanks Claire! You've inspired me to want more in other colors! *laughs*

 -- Wrap-style pants for my guy! Same concept as above (http://laupre.wordpress.com/2008/06/29/easy-breezy-wrap-pants-tutorial/) but maybe a little more manly/unisex and full-length. (He's a 36x30) Cotton fabric probably best. We saw wrap pants like this in Epcot and he wanted a pair for himself. (He keeps asking me why no one has made him a pair yet!  :D )

 --  ;D 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) or this wallet (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=41812950), or this purse (http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=27792322) etc. Pillows, aprons, anything! I am just in love with this fabric!

   -- A Day Tote/Weekender Bag. There's not a thing I don't love about this one (http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/products/item/Miranda_Day_Bag/221/p2c50) for example, but it could be in different fabrics of similar colors for example. It looks sturdy and says it has pockets and the shape is really lovely. I also really like this one (http://wkdesigner.wordpress.com/2009/01/17/the-weekender/) which would be a lovely weekender bag since I don't own any luggage. And of course, Amy Butler's pattern  (http://www.amybutlerdesign.com/products/patterns_display.php?id=22) is neat but it wouldn't have to be in her fabric.

 -- A Handlebar Bag for my bike like this concept (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/098a03ff2450067750f510855d11a987?offset=0). Doesn't have to be that fabric or anything, but I like the style. My bike is a Trek 15" unisex hybrid in black with silver accents.

 -- Fabric buckets like this! (http://www.wists.com/34a59c6cec193c53d3756df1d7e4bb0c?q=sewing&offset=20) I have a great project bag now I use for my jewelry tools, but...I could use another! (Or more!) I do most of my beading/crafting on the couch and it's nice to stash things away in something like this.

 -- Cute "Rockabilly" Style Dress I LOVE this style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/eb267c792fd017b380bac7d99b4f803f?offset=0) but obviously in adult size. And no pink please, it doesn't look good on me. I wear a US size 4 and could send more specific measurements too. I just love how fun and flirty it is!

 --  ;D A Cozy Winter Summer Wrap like this thread (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=332604.0) BUT lightweight. I have the most awesome warm version already but I'd love a lighter weight version for wearing in chilly air conditioning like at work as well. It's hot outside but sometimes a touch chilly inside. Not enough for a jacket, but enough your arms are a little cold.  (tutorial here (http://www.urbanthreads.com/pages?id=502)) Some neutral color/pattern (grey, white, beige, etc.) would probably be easiest to wear a lot.

 -- Kitchenaid Stand Mixer Cover. I've got a few examples of ones I like here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/mixer). Mine's the "Classic" style.

 -- Greek Goddess Halloween Costume like this (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/sewing/276ac619a0c267c3b4c8c4443296592f?offset=0). Yes, it's a bit early but I LOVE this costume and it would be awesome to have it made for me and my measurements instead of buying one off the shelf that never fits! ;)

 -- A simple robe. I really like this style (http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=853506). Doesn't have to be exactly like that but I like the Japanese/Asian/Cherry Blossom influence, but it could be other colors/patterns that I like as well. Doesn't need to be form-fitting, can be a little roomy just not too oversized. (A little roomy is fine.) I'm generally a US size 4.

 -- A Lapboard I really need a new one. Something comfy so I can use my heavy laptop on the couch more comfortably. I like this one (http://www.etsy.com/listing/46361618/super-jumbo-faux-leather-lap-desk) a lot but it wouldn't have to be that exact color/fabric. Just the style is really useful.



Knitting

  --  ;D Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. There are some wisted here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/socks) for inspiration. (And yes, thick ones for around the house are perfect too!)

 -- A shrug like this style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/fdf27d12d6e6b3ef93fdb8dd3f12e91a?offset=0) (Or another example (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/f71e9358c9d80a65328a94cc8e39f77b?offset=0).) Could be in a self-striping in any color I like (blues, purples, greens, greys, browns, etc.) or solid. It's the style and idea I really like. I'm flexible on the color/pattern.

 -- A cable knit bag (http://garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=98&d_id=54&lang=en). I really like cable knit and I think this bag is really cool.



Other

  --  ;D ;D Phoenix-colored Necklace just like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/45516283/sale-candleflame-red-topaz-songea). I LOVE LOVE LOVE this piece. It's beautiful colors, it's in silver, it's just perfect. I so want this. Yes, I make jewelry but it'd be nice to have something beautiful like this made for me for a change! ;)

 --  ;D Hand-Dyed / "Shibori-Dyed" Fitted Tee Shirts Like above, short sleeve, 3/4 or long sleeve is fine so long as it''s fitted. I like styles like THESE (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/tie_dye) in my wists. I especially love the flame style one but really like this type of look a lot. It''s different from the shirts I typically wear and I like that. (Please just no hippie/Grateful Dead rainbow style tie dye. Nothing against hippies but it's just not my personal preference.)

-- Fitted Style Tee Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. Fitted, size small or US 4 equivalent. I have received a ton and I love them but I also live in fitted tees and more are always welcome. I have a bunch of styles I love WISTED (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/shirt) for inspiration.

 --  ;D Something stained glass - sun catcher, nightlight, glass mosaic item, etc. Anything! 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 would love to put up something pretty there! (HERE (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/stained_glass) are some I've wisted for inspiration/ideas.)

 -- 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.

 --  ;D Ceramic/pottery tea mug, oversized mug, or cereal bowl (I eat cereal every single day!) or anything like that. Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (HERE (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/pottery) are a couple things I've wisted for inspiration.)

 -- Anything with a phoenix. 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 (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/phoenix) as inspiration.

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

 -- Something with owls. I love owls, especially snowy and great horned owls.

 -- 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, or my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like.



Craft Supplies
 
--  ;D ;D Jewelry Presentation Displays I have one in black but I need a necklace one in WHITE for photographing my work. I could also use a necklace/earring combo and a bracelet hand. These are styles I like and could REALLY use:
 - Simple Necklace: Display, necklace, leatherette, white, 10x8 inches (http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?PN=H202519PK)
 - Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, necklace/earring, frosted acrylic (http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?PN=H201424PK)
 - Another Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, Venus figure, opaque white, 12 x 8-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches (http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?PN=H201518PK)
 - Ring/Bracelet Display, acrylic, clear frosted, 7-1/4 x 4-1/2 x 3 inch hand (http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?PN=H201463PK)

 -- ;D ;D Gemstone Beads I'd love to start using more faceted, briolette and other cut stones. Here are some I really am coveting.
(Listings shown are just for example of the stone.)
 -Chrome Diopside Beads - Especially teardrops or briolettes. Also small rondelles would be nice. example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380236149095) or example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380232646490).
 - Mexican Fire Opal Rondelle Beads - example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/41567690/genuine-mexican-fire-opal-faceted) or example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170334876934)
 - Sapphire Rondelle Beads - In a red/orange/yellow combo. example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290441853564) and example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320536039426)
 - Any gems on my Etsy favorites - Bunches listed here (http://www.etsy.com/your/favorite/listings)

 -- 24gauge Artistic Wire in Silver - It's my favorite wire. You can find it here (http://www.artbeads.com/awr24svr10.html?cmp=amazon&zmam=24751123&zmas=1&zmac=11&zmap=AWR24SVR10). I pretty much always need this.

 -- A sewing basket. You know, classic little box with a handle to store my growing collection of threads, notions, scissors, etc. Like this idea/ (http://www.amazon.com/Prym-Square-Sewing-Basket-Z10213B1/dp/B002762QFM) or this one (http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?CATID=cat3527&PRODID=xprd1130580). Doesn't have to be that fabric or anything but that idea. Right now, all my stuff is just piled up in a mess on my desk.

  -- Mini Cake Pans (http://www.amazon.com/Chicago-Metallic-4-cup-Nonstick-Multi-Tier/dp/B00188HVXW/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I3OFRGI36T2KOL&colid=397IKAEGOJ51E). How cute are these? I don't know that I *need* them per se, but they're just so darn fun.

 -- Lampwork beads. Love. Wish I could make but I''m too scared of open flame. :D

 -- Dichroic Glass Beads I love this mix (http://www.artbeads.com/dich-mix1.html) for example. So pretty!

 -- 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. Also any 16, 22 or 24 gauge wire is in any color is always useful.

 -- Resin Starter Kit I've been curious to try these so something to get started (resin, molds, etc.) would be fun.

 -- Glass Pendant Kit I really like this one (http://www.etsy.com/listing/49081334/jewelry-kit-to-make-pendants-or-charms) (because the copper foil tape and such is cool) but also just a starter kit like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50435724/learn-to-make-this-pendant-pendant) would be good too. It doesn't have to be a ready-made kit, just the supplies would be helpful. I've made Scrabble tile pendants but not glass for lack of materials.

 -- Flat-back Pendant Bails for use in Scrabble Tile/Glass pendants and related. Like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/49877080/50-silvertone-jewelry-pendant-bails-sale).

 -- Jewelry Hammer and Anvil Set Now that I'm working with wire more, I'd love a jewelry hammer and anvil to flatten my wire and shape it with more control. Hammer example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/42174148/8-oz-ball-pein-hammer-perfect-for-making) and anvil example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50368316/metal-steel-anvil-bench-block-for). Obviously a mini anvil! ;)


Extras
-- Tea! Especially fruity ones. (Caffeinated ones are fine too for my morning cup at work!)
 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.
 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)
 -- Pineapple anything so long as it does NOT have coconut in it. (Candy, snacks, candles, body spray, etc.) Finding pure, straight pineapple is so hard!
 -- 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 glass pendant kit

first claim

My name is Robin and I live in Oregon, USA.  I am a quarter Japanese, quarter Korean, quarter Jewish, quarter German (100% Mutt... yes!). I am married to Phil a fantastic cook who spoils me with delicious meals; good thing or all we'd eat would be steamed rice and veggies.  We have a 2 year old toddler named Aria who is proverbial light of our lives.  I am a feminist who is raising my daughter in an anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobic household.

I am all over the board, I like whimsical, edgy, bohemian, steampunk, pretty, bold, soft, hard…I wear a lot of black and gray, but I’ve been branching out into the wondrous color wheel.  I love red and turquoise together. I prefer rich, jewel tone colors and earthy colors! I find myself mostly drawn to blues and greens.  I like images of birds, squirrels, mice, and trees, but I also really like skulls, 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. wisty surprises are nice.

a quick note if you claim anything for my daughter...we arent into cartoon branded stuff.  i cant stand barbie or bratz.  we dont dislike pink but we try to stay away from anything overwhelmingly girly.  she likes the ocean, digging in the dirt, burying herself in sand, and splashing in water.  for these reasons durable and washable is always good.  thanks! 

Some of my wishes, BIG wishes in bold  ;D

I claim rlynn for surprises for Aria

This is my 3rd claim, 0 sent, 0 received


 :-* Thanks in advance for picking me  :-*

Please don't send anything melty cause it's HOT HOT HOT here right now!

I claim Ma Rut for some etsy favorite surprises

2nd claim, 1 outstanding, 0 sent, 0 received

My name is Robin and I live in Oregon, USA.  I am a quarter Japanese, quarter Korean, quarter Jewish, quarter German (100% Mutt... yes!). I am married to Phil a fantastic cook who spoils me with delicious meals; good thing or all we'd eat would be steamed rice and veggies.  We have a 2 year old toddler named Aria who is proverbial light of our lives.  I am a feminist who is raising my daughter in an anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobic household.

I am all over the board, I like whimsical, edgy, bohemian, steampunk, pretty, bold, soft, hard…I wear a lot of black and gray, but I’ve been branching out into the wondrous color wheel.  I love red and turquoise together. I prefer rich, jewel tone colors and earthy colors! I find myself mostly drawn to blues and greens.  I like images of birds, squirrels, mice, and trees, but I also really like skulls, 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. wisty surprises are nice.

a quick note if you claim anything for my daughter...we arent into cartoon branded stuff.  i cant stand barbie or bratz.  we dont dislike pink but we try to stay away from anything overwhelmingly girly.  she likes the ocean, digging in the dirt, burying herself in sand, and splashing in water.  for these reasons durable and washable is always good.  thanks! 

Some of my wishes, BIG wishes in bold  ;D

I claim babalina58 for a wisty surprise.

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

About Me:
I live in northern California (USA). I'm 28 and I live with my sweet, geeky husband and our exuberant 2 year old golden retriever. I enjoy gardening, reading, video games, camping, cooking and of course crafting! I love beautiful and useful handmade objects of all kinds. My style is sort of feminine, earthy, warm, clean and elegant. I'm not a big fan of kitsch or anything super trendy and fad driven.

I like: typography, graphic art, waterscape photography, natural history, teal, chocolate brown, soft colors, jewel tones and earth tones, texture, trees, bees, herbal tea, foreign candy, good beer, homemade ice cream, new recipes, whimsy, and happy, playful things

I don't like: super perfumy scents, neon colors, barbie pink, things directly related to brands or movies (basically, anything that looks like it's advertising something) and knickknacks


Big wishes in bold.

Crafts
- a carry case for my nintendo ds lite - I really love this style (http://www.etsy.com/listing/39603821/alexander-henry-tatsu-in-black-and-red)
- silverware travel set - I would love four of these (http://www.wists.com/cinnamonteal/eco-friendly/7a87f65734a6bb2d0c36760b547515b8?offset=0)

- a dog crate cover - like this (http://www.wists.com/cinnamonteal/dog/afbbc81b58433e3e34a20bb9ab82f614?offset=0) and made with a light, breathable material like cotton, machine washable, please!
- hand spun and/or hand dyed yarn
- handmade soap - I love olive oil soap! I can't get enough of it! I prefer light, homey scents like unscented oatmeal soap, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, citrus and pear.
- reuseable shopping bags - always handy
- something useful made via woodworking, metalworking, ceramics, glass blowing/fusing, leather working, or the like.
- a travel makeup bag - long enough to hold brushes, with a zipper and a flat bottom
- 8x10 photo for my wall - I like (http://publishing.cdlib.org/ucpressebooks/data/13030/pk/kt5b69q3pk/figures/kt5b69q3pk_fig009.gif) the vintage-y look (http://www.etsy.com/listing/51825053/grasses-no-3?ref=cat2_gallery_18) of these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/51704480/lifeguard-tower-8x10-fine-art-photo?ref=sr_gallery_7&ga_search_query=art+deco+photography&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=&includes):

Supplies
- a crochet kit for making these nifty doily covered rocks (http://www.wists.com/cinnamonteal/decoration/847d645aa2713bcdd1ec2c50c8e64149?offset=0)
- a set of wool combs - a long shot, I know. Maybe someone has some they don't want? or is handy in the wood shop and can make a pair? Here's a couple (http://blog.loxosceles.org/posts/1147125661.shtml) DIY tutorials (http://thestarbox.blogspot.com/2009/07/how-to-make-your-own-wool-combs.html).
- vintage lead or wooden type - another long shot
- worsted weight 100% wool yarn in blues, greys or black

-Not a fan of knick-knacks (basically stuff that sits on a shelf collecting dust, )
-I spend the majority of my time crafting or couponing
-I’m a student majoring in Business/Entrepreneurship

My wists are here: http://wists.com/neelia

Crafts: --- lots of examples of styles I like are in my wists, so check those out to guide you 
-HUGE want: futon cover! Will give you dimensions, but it’s a full sized futon so more than anything it’d be a lot of fabric and a huge zipper!
-Thread catcher
-Sewing machine cover
-Hair accessories – I love headbands!
-Cute coupon organizer – made from fabric?
-Jewelry – my ears get irritated from cheap hooks/etc, so please keep that in mind – I like earthy, simpleish jewelry
-Approx 13” x 13” x 13” sturdy fabric boxes for one of those wire cubby things
-Any storage help! Especially stuff for my desk to store papers
-Cute laptop case (w/ maybe a big pocket in front to hold my charger?) – my laptop is about 1.5” x 13” x 9.5”
-Snack & sandwich baggies (you know, to replace the ziplocks I use) with food safe lining that I can wipe out
-Anything for my pets: 4 dogs (collars, homemade treats, beds, etc), cats (collars, treats, toys, beds, etc), or rats (treats, beds, hammocks, etc)
-Anything for my boyfriend: he pretty much likes one thing (besides me), cars. Oh and food. But as far as cars go he’s into Dodge muscle cars, he has a Subaru STI that’s his baby, and a Jeep that he uses for off roading.
-fabric coasters (thick enough to absorb condensation dripping from my iced tea!)
-cute overnight bag! Enough to fit 2-3 days worth of clothes in, so like a small dufflebag?
-long wallet – long enough to fit $$ without folding it – with change purse and lots of pockets for credit cards & my id!
-bed for my pup – the kind with foam not filling (shes got a bad back) – she’s a medium sized pup (about 35 lbs)




Craft Supplies:
-Felt in colors other than the basic, easy to find kind
-Embroidery Thread/Needles
-Vintage fabrics / table clothes / bed sheets / pillow cases / etc.
-Any storage help! Especially stuff for my desk to store papers
-Buttons – vintage preferred, but I’ll take any!
-Lace edging (the thick cotton type, not stretchy lace)
-Thread – any colors!
-Comic book boards – for wrapping fabric around & stashing
-A book that can actually teach me to crochet (I learned to knit, crocheting is supposed to be easier!)
-feathers
-fabric! Pretty much any size pieces are ok!



Extra:
-I love hard candies to keep in my purse. I especially love See’s lollipops – any flavor except chocolate!

I claim neeliarose for a coupon organizer.

3rd claim this round, 2 outstanding, 0 sent, 0 received

My name is Robin and I live in Oregon, USA.  I am a quarter Japanese, quarter Korean, quarter Jewish, quarter German (100% Mutt... yes!). I am married to Phil a fantastic cook who spoils me with delicious meals; good thing or all we'd eat would be steamed rice and veggies.  We have a 2 year old toddler named Aria who is proverbial light of our lives.  I am a feminist who is raising my daughter in an anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobic household.

I am all over the board, I like whimsical, edgy, bohemian, steampunk, pretty, bold, soft, hard…I wear a lot of black and gray, but I’ve been branching out into the wondrous color wheel.  I love red and turquoise together. I prefer rich, jewel tone colors and earthy colors! I find myself mostly drawn to blues and greens.  I like images of birds, squirrels, mice, and trees, but I also really like skulls, 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. wisty surprises are nice.

a quick note if you claim anything for my daughter...we arent into cartoon branded stuff.  i cant stand barbie or bratz.  we dont dislike pink but we try to stay away from anything overwhelmingly girly.  she likes the ocean, digging in the dirt, burying herself in sand, and splashing in water.  for these reasons durable and washable is always good.  thanks! 

Some of my wishes, BIG wishes in bold  ;D

I claim rylnn for art for aria's room.

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

About Me:
I live in northern California (USA). I'm 28 and I live with my sweet, geeky husband and our exuberant 2 year old golden retriever. I enjoy gardening, reading, video games, camping, cooking and of course crafting! I love beautiful and useful handmade objects of all kinds. My style is sort of feminine, earthy, warm, clean and elegant. I'm not a big fan of kitsch or anything super trendy and fad driven.

I like: typography, graphic art, waterscape photography, natural history, teal, chocolate brown, soft colors, jewel tones and earth tones, texture, trees, bees, herbal tea, foreign candy, good beer, homemade ice cream, new recipes, whimsy, and happy, playful things

I don't like: super perfumy scents, neon colors, barbie pink, things directly related to brands or movies (basically, anything that looks like it's advertising something) and knickknacks

Post by: frosty772 on July 26, 2010 11:44:27 AM
I will claim Misocci74 for a new purse.

This is my first claim
None sent
Nothing received

Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 37 and im a stay at home mom to three boys in Northern California. I 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
Anything 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!!
Snood in a 40s style (prefer a crochet or knitted tie versus elastic (stays on better)
I have a weird obsession with knitted cuffs!! I love them!!  Chocolate brown, red, white, mustard yellow.


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)

Aprons!!  Even though I sew them I would love to see what others come up with!!  I would also like two childrens apron (both are under 12yrs old)  Transformers and Spiderman a plus!! (one claim at a time is fine needless to say  Cheesy)

New purse (same reason as above!!!)  I am in need of a large school bag/tote!!  The strap on mine is starting to come loose.

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

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

Crazy Quilted Purse.  Or any purse made by you!!  Im needing a new one!! (received a beautiful one from feast your eyes.)  More are welcomed!!!

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

Regency or Victorian era Reticule

Petticoat (cotton or cotton blend please) either knee or ankle length !! I actually wear these alot!! (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 slippers.  This pattern is from 1864
http://www.victoriana.com/VictorianShoes/victorianslipperpattern.html

Im looking for special kind of apron for my husband.  He cooks the eggs at breakfast time and is a ninjitsu martial artist.  I would love an embroidered apron that has a asian ninja/martial artist holding a spatula in each hand and says "Egg Master" underneath.  Fabric and colors are open as long as its durable and holds up.
 
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.

Bath bombs.  Also jars of bath salts would be fantastic as well. Im good for now!! Thanks!!

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

Lavender 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!!

I would love a sign for my bathroom door that says "Powder Room" in a very girly style.

Im looking for a serving tray that I can bring snacks from the kitchen to the living room.  Asian or victorian influence a real plus.

Im also looking for a picture frame.  about 1.5 inches or more wide/thick on the sides.  What I would like is a thin wooden back fitted to it. I dont need the glass for it.  An old vintage frame would be preferred for this.  Im going to use it as a center piece tray for candles (if you can visualize it will lay flat on the table) I can take a pic of the pic in my book if you would like to see my inspiration.

Handsewn shower curtain.  Victorian style please!!

Toilet paper holder for hubbys bathroom.  Kanji fabric would be perfect or a "manly" asian print

My 18 year old loves Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before Christmas so anything with him on (appropriate for a guy) would be fantastic

Books that teach drawing as well as an art kit of some kind put together would be great.  My 11 year old loves to draw comic books!!

I also am looking for a swap address journal so I can keep better track of those i swap with often.

 
~~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).

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

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

Also im looking for bath tub grippers (the ones that prevent slipping) im looking for the kind that stick directly on the tub using tape/sticker.  I cant find any except for the mats

Legos for my two boys would be wonderful.  They are obsessed!!

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

I claim missmoppet for some yarn.

This is my third claim; 2 sent, 1 received.

About me: I am 38.  Married, with 2 girls: DD1 is 7 years old, DD2 turns a year old in August!  We have a dog, 2 cats, and fish.  I work at home as a programmer (but I am on a hiatus from work until DD2 starts preschool, or sleeping through the night LOL).  I spend my free time making art quilts, trying various techniques (dyeing, screenprinting, etc), and studying art. 
My favourite colours are purple, blue, pink, green, and all variety of earth tones. 
I love nature and natural designs, retro, and modern.

I am in Ontario, Canada.

water bottle holder for DD1 (I can give you the bottle size)

general inspirations for any craft
Anything you are good at, and enjoy making!  With a small disclaimer:  I don't have a lot of space, so things that can be used are fantastic.  A new apron? I'd love one!  Potholders, dishcloths, placemats, decorative storage boxes, all of these would be used and loved.  As would many other things, too!
Something to celebrate my name!  A few years ago I legally changed my name to Dahlia
Something inspired by a sugar skull robot - the only example I have is a picture of a tattoo lol http://www.zhippo.com/NateBeaversHOSTED/images/gallery/nate%20beavers-robo%20skull-gallery1.jpg
Something inspired by the Vintage Fairies at www.sallyjean.com  I love the creative fairy with the saying "sometimes there was a storm in her brain".  I also love the art fairies with the saying "I must make art".
Something inspired by the Salvador Dali quote in my siggie, or the Van Gogh quote "I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate"

I claim JessySihk for some teal, blue, and brown fabrics, and some ribbons, and maybe something else!

This is my 4th claim (1 outstanding, 1 in transit, 1 received)

About me: I am 38.  Married, with 2 girls: DD1 is 7 years old, DD2 turns a year old in August!  We have a dog, 2 cats, and fish.  I work at home as a programmer (but I am on a hiatus from work until DD2 starts preschool, or sleeping through the night LOL).  I spend my free time making art quilts, trying various techniques (dyeing, screenprinting, etc), and studying art. 
My favourite colours are purple, blue, pink, green, and all variety of earth tones. 
I love nature and natural designs, retro, and modern.

I am in Ontario, Canada.

My wist (http://www.wists.com/gatheredthreads)

crafts - MOST WANTED

bright plushie monsters for both girls
water bottle holder for DD1 (I can give you the bottle size)

general inspirations for any craft you are good at, and enjoy making!
With a small disclaimer:  I don't have a lot of space, so things that can be used are fantastic.  A new apron? I'd love one!  Potholders, dishcloths, placemats, decorative storage boxes, all of these would be used and loved.  As would many other things, too!
Something to celebrate my name!  A few years ago I legally changed my name to Dahlia
Something inspired by a sugar skull robot - the only example I have is a picture of a tattoo lol http://www.zhippo.com/NateBeaversHOSTED/images/gallery/nate%20beavers-robo%20skull-gallery1.jpg
Something inspired by the Vintage Fairies at www.sallyjean.com  I love the creative fairy with the saying "sometimes there was a storm in her brain".  I also love the art fairies with the saying "I must make art".
Something inspired by the Salvador Dali quote in my siggie, or the Van Gogh quote "I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate"

spicy candies

Thank you!

Post by: frosty772 on July 30, 2010 09:38:21 PM
Im going to claim Edie22 for a purse!!  I have one started (actually more then half done already) that would be PERFECT for her!!

This is my second claim
None sent
Nothing received

Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 37 and im a stay at home mom to three boys in Northern California. I 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
Anything 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!!
Snood in a 40s style (prefer a crochet or knitted tie versus elastic (stays on better)
I have a weird obsession with knitted cuffs!! I love them!!  Chocolate brown, red, white, mustard yellow.


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)

Aprons!!  Even though I sew them I would love to see what others come up with!!  I would also like two childrens apron (both are under 12yrs old)  Transformers and Spiderman a plus!! (one claim at a time is fine needless to say   ;D)

New purse (same reason as above!!!)  I am in need of a large school bag/tote!!  The strap on mine is starting to come loose.

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

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

Crazy Quilted Purse.  Or any purse made by you!!  Im needing a new one!! (received a beautiful one from feast your eyes.)  More are welcomed!!!

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

Regency or Victorian era Reticule

Petticoat (cotton or cotton blend please) either knee or ankle length !! I actually wear these a lot!! (Im 5'5 email for length) (received 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 slippers.  This pattern is from 1864
http://www.victoriana.com/VictorianShoes/victorianslipperpattern.html

Im looking for special kind of apron for my husband.  He cooks the eggs at breakfast time and is a ninjitsu martial artist.  I would love an embroidered apron that has a ninja/martial artist holding a spatula in each hand and says "Egg Master" underneath.  Fabric and colors are open as long as its durable and holds up.
 
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.

Bath bombs.  Also jars of bath salts would be fantastic as well. Im good for now!! Thanks!!

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

Lavender 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!!

I would love a sign for my bathroom door that says "Powder Room" in a very girly styleThis has been claimed.  Thank you!!

Im looking for a serving tray that I can bring snacks from the kitchen to the living room.  Asian or victorian influence a real plus.

Im also looking for a picture frame.  about 1.5 inches or more wide/thick on the sides.  What I would like is a thin wooden back fitted to it. I dont need the glass for it.  An old vintage frame would be preferred for this.  Im going to use it as a center piece tray for candles (if you can visualize it will lay flat on the table) I can take a pic of the pic in my book if you would like to see my inspiration.

Handsewn shower curtain.  Victorian style please!!

Toilet paper holder for hubbys bathroom.  Kanji fabric would be perfect or a "manly" asian print

My 18 year old loves Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before Christmas so anything with him on (appropriate for a guy) would be fantastic

Books that teach drawing as well as an art kit of some kind put together would be great.  My 11 year old loves to draw comic books!!

I also am looking for a swap address journal so I can keep better track of those i swap with often. This has been claimed.  Thank you!!

Handcrafted Jewelry with Victorian looks/influence

Victorian/Edwardian style chalk board.   Heres the idea.  Antique frame or mirror with glass removed.  Where the glass should be is the area to write in (im not sure what would be used to create the chalkboard slate as I only know of the special paint).  Saw one in Victorian Trading Co.  I love the idea!!

Im looking for a table runner for our new table we recently purchased.  Looking for something, of course Victorian style as well.  Measurements can and will be provided.  Want something rich looking but affordable to make!!
 
~~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).

Post by: rlynn on July 31, 2010 12:18:53 PM
I claim frosty772 for a surprise.  :)

4th claim, 1 outstanding, 1 sent, 1 received

My name is Robin and I live in Oregon, USA.  I am a quarter Japanese, quarter Korean, quarter Jewish, quarter German (100% Mutt... yes!). I am married to Phil a fantastic cook who spoils me with delicious meals; good thing or all we'd eat would be steamed rice and veggies.  We have a 2 year old toddler named Aria who is proverbial light of our lives.  I am a feminist who is raising my daughter in an anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobic household.

I am all over the board, I like whimsical, edgy, bohemian, steampunk, pretty, bold, soft, hard…I wear a lot of black and gray, but I’ve been branching out into the wondrous color wheel.  I love red and turquoise together. I prefer rich, jewel tone colors and earthy colors! I find myself mostly drawn to blues and greens.  I like images of birds, squirrels, mice, and trees, but I also really like skulls, 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. wisty surprises are nice.

a quick note if you claim anything for my daughter...we arent into cartoon branded stuff.  i cant stand barbie or bratz.  we dont dislike pink but we try to stay away from anything overwhelmingly girly.  she likes the ocean, digging in the dirt, burying herself in sand, and splashing in water.  for these reasons durable and washable is always good.  thanks! 

Some of my wishes, BIG wishes in bold  ;D

Crafted
