IMPORTANT: Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

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

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO THE ORGANIZERS VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.  PLEASE MESSAGE BABALINA58 & Lindyv321 YOU MUST PUT IN THE SUBJECT in SUBJECT LINE referring to swap 67!!
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 66.

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 TEN PER SECTION i.e. CRAFTS and SUPPLIES.  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 at a time until your crafts are 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 AND you have confirmation they have, 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. We 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 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 (14 days)TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR.This starts from the day you claim
IF YOU DO NOT SEND A MEDIUM ITEM YOU CLAIMED FOR 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 a MIN of two hours of crafting time or $20-30 worth of store bought items )
Feedback will be given as soon as you have sent - received -posted pics but can be up to 2 weeks after the swap closed if you do not post pics!!

IF YOU CLAIM FOR A COTTON HAT, THEN DO NOT SEND A WOOL ONE OR YOU WILL HAVE TO SEND AGAIN! PLEASE SEND WHAT YOU CLAIM FOR AND IF YOU FOR SOME REASON NEED TO CHANGE YOU MUST STILL KEEP YOUR PARTNERS WANTS AND WISHES IN THAT OF NOT YOU RISK SENDING AGAIN!!

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


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.FEEDBACK WILL NOT BE GIVEN UNTIL YOUR PACKAGES HAVE BEEN SENT AND YOU RECEIVE AND POST PICS OR max 2 weeks AFTER the swap ends[/color]

BABALINA58 will be our organizer, in charge of your claims, your sends, receives and approval feedback.
LINDYV321 will be or co Organizer in charge of the gallery :)

NEW CO ORG this round~~~

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SEND YOUR QUESTIONNAIRE TO Babalina58 & Lindyv321

Remember peeps:

1) I will not do feedback w/o the pics posted or 2 weeks after the swap has closed as per the rules set by craftster so get them posed EARLY!!!

Make sure you take pics BEFORE you ship as it will effect your feedback if you don't and your partner does not post pics..it is unacceptable to receive and not post pics

Lindy and I are both happy fun loving girls but will follow the rules to the T so please this is very important to finish off the swap process.  it NOT acceptable to receive and not post pics it is just IMO RUDE and not very concentrate to the sender.

I know things happen that is WHY you need to take pics BEFORE you send and just store them in your gallery if needed and it makes it fun for us to see and wists your goodies...Check your cameras before you claim ladies...
  
If you don't have a working camera DON'T CLAIM!!  Taking pics before sending is not a request it is a RULE!! just blow off this you will not be accepted into the following month if not! :'( :'(

Oh, charge your batteries OR get new ones as that cant be an excuse you have 5 days to get them up and then it is up to the sender to get them up!!


  ;) Now all the mean firm org stuff is said. :D :D.WOOT WOOT LETS party and have fun in this month like the last one I am so proud of how fun and smooth for the most part last month went after the prev. few months I wanted to jump from a tall building with the drama~

Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap 67 Sign Up OPEN NOW ( closed to claims until 2/1)
Post by: babalina58 on January 28, 2011 04:44:58 PM
      ~~First up for round 67 is our last swap claim for round 66~~


muddy21 is our first claim


I live in New England in an old house (1771) in the country with my two teen-aged sons and two cats.  It's a small house so I generally prefer things that are functional or useful as well as decorative, and smaller is usually better than larger.  I enjoy vintage, primitive, folk art, organic (in the broad sense of the word) and whimsical.

I love found or altered objects and tramp art ( http://www.amesgallery.com/FolkArtPages/Tramp.html ).  Re-using, recycling, and re-purposing are all high on my list of good things!  I like things that combine mechanical gadgets, Victoriana and natural history as in steampunkery.  Favored colors are earth-, sea-, or general nature-tones (I love sea glass colors), jewel tones and milk paint colors; not so much the neons and pastels.  I love designs that include birds, animals, insects, trees, rocks…more realistic than cutesy.  Steam trains and retro-50s rocket ships & science fiction are also fun (Journey to the Mushroom Planet sort of thing).  I work in a high school library and seem to be a life-long student myself so journals, writing supplies, note cards and reading or book-related projects are all possibilities.  I love polymer clay things – especially the new metallic type I’ve seen used for steampunk charms.

I'm not allergic to it, but I don’t like the smell of cigarette smoke.  No wool or lanolin ingredients in anything that would be worn or put on my skin (like lotions or soaps); wool for embroidery or crafting is OK.  Food allergies below under "extras."

    * Crafts

      -Altered art/mixed media journal for recording my craft swaps – could just be a cover that fits a standard size spiral-bound notebook
      -Embroidery hoop wall art – ideas can be found on my wist http://www.wists.com/muddy21/all/?tag2=&offset=0&searchme=   I love trees, birds, doorways, gardens, or your creative design
      -Earring display/holder along these lines http://www.flickr.com/photos/jesscalator/3528840427/  It would be great to have something for posts as well as wires.  Thank you, Katy Mai  Smiley
      -Miniatures – fairy houses, gnome houses, Wind in the Willows or Beatrix Potter inspired items, curio cabinets, altered Altoid-tin shrines – for indoors or in the garden https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=360546.msg4227455#msg4227455 , or http://www.wists.com/muddy21/01b1630d7418f69589fc2971bfe95d8e
      -Fabric bowl or basket
      -Loaded bead/charm bracelets – there are ones I like here http://www.etsy.com/listing/60538405/burgundy-wine-and-rich-purple-with-deep?ref=v1_other_1   but different is good, too
      -Earrings with beads or charms like http://www.wists.com/muddy21/af64c9eb9ddec6ea6c9c0f7ca7841a29?offset=40 for pierced ears, either wires or posts, not too big or long or heavy
      -Thread catcher - beanbag weight, loop or free-standing cup – any sort OK   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=360546.msg4227455#msg4227455
      -Needlebook  http://www.wists.com/muddy21/ac0355450fe93313f8d54e139a34fedf
      -Small-ish pincushion or biscornu https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368298.msg4328718#msg4328718   to keep with my embroidery supplies
      -Goatmilk or other homemade soaps – prefer organic scents (honey, oatmeal) or spicy rather than heavily floral or sweet

    * Supplies  

      -Embroidery floss of various colors – would particularly like to try silk (partial skeins leftover from projects would be just fine!)  Please no neons or bright primary colors.
      -Thread Heaven – silicone treatment to use with metallic floss
      -Cotton fat quarters of various colors with small textural patterns, batiks or hand-dyed fabrics that might be useful for making landscape or art quilts
      -Craft books (used is fine) with embroidery or stuffie patterns
      -Clear storage boxes or tins with clear lids http://www.wists.com/muddy21/6233e788a4e9d70cd45a2db9884d0cd2 for organizing craft supplies
      -Buttons of various colors, sizes, shapes
      -Wool felt
      -How-to Needle Felt starter kit or project ideas (I bought a couple of wool sweaters recently at Goodwill but not sure what to do now!)
      -Water soluble fabric stabilizer – don’t need whole sheets, it’s for embroidery hoop art, so 3-6” (or so) pieces are fine
    -Ephemera or embellishments for paper arts, ATCs, wall art, etc. for interests as above

    * Extras
      -Back issues of Quilting Arts or their associated magazine titles or special issues
      -Local sweet treats from your area [but no chocolate, apples, nuts (neither tree- nor pea-) or canola (rapeseed) oil]
  
      -Postcards or photos of your local places or historical markers


      Thanks for claiming me!

Hi, I'm Roxanne!  My daughter Lana is now in first grade and is loving it.  She is our pride and joy.  Lana has grown up on Craftster love and has received so many wonderful and thoughtfully made presents her whole life.  So THANK YOU to all of you!!   I have a hubby who helps me craft when he can.  He’s the one who runs off to the craft store to buy a craft supply I missed or off to the PO to mail my packages.  I'm originally from Hawaii, so even though I live in Maryland now I'm a local girl at heart! I've dabbled in lots of different crafts.  My true love is pottery, but I haven't done that in quite a while now.  I am starting to do paper crafts, but I’ll always be true to my beading!

Please nothing made with vinyl.  No wist picks please.  I really need to redo mine as I've received much from it already.

Post by: KatyMai on February 01, 2011 09:46:56 AM
I claim Dawl for Beachy / Sea themed hoopla and maybe something else.

This is my First claim, 0 sent, 0 recieved.

Hi I’m Katy and I live with my husband in the UK. We are both rather geeky though I’m a nature/animal lover as well. I’m a full time student studying for a BA in Creative Writing. I love greens, blues and purples, anything tree themed and animals of all kinds. I’m into games such as Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft, Professor Layton, the new Mario Wii game and all the old point and click classics. I’m not a big fan of really heavy scents as they give me a headache and I’m allergic to peanuts.

Crafts.

A Wisty surprisehttp://www.wists.com/KatyMai (http://www.wists.com/KatyMai)

Decorated t-shirts with something geeky ( you know something like ‘There´s no place like 127.0.0.1’ written on it) or Mario based for my hubby. He’s XXL in British sizes and would prefer a black base colour.

Anything final fantasy based, seriously anything, we are both in love with them especially FFX and FFVII.

Tree based wall art, I love the new house we have moved into but oh my gosh the walls are bare. Check out my wist for some ideas.

A messenger bag for me to use for college, preferably in a gothic or hippy style.

A small embroidered pouch for me to keep my rune set in. Preferably with a Nordic/gothic/wiccan theme, Yggdrasil for example would be great.

I really really need a new wallet. No coin pocket, just room for notes and cards would be perfect. For ideas on fabrics I like greens and blues and purples.


My tea towels have holes in them so I’d love some new ones to go in our new kitchen. Preferably with a geeky/Mario/WoW theme or a nature theme.

Thanks to moving house we now have a dining room table but no settings for it, some place mats and matching coasters would be great!

Handmade lined or unlined journal.

A small shrine based around trees and gemstones.

A pottery spoon rest.

A DSi case in a naturey or Mario theme.

A decorated votive candle holder in a tree theme, don’t mind if it’s etched or painted or what but it needs to be able to have a candle lit in it so maybe not papercraft!

A rune set like this one my wists http://www.wists.com/KatyMai/4ec6164859a268bd85152e74ecc8355c?offset=0 (http://www.wists.com/KatyMai/4ec6164859a268bd85152e74ecc8355c?offset=0) Elder Furthark please but i dont mind what wood you use.

A charm bracelet decorated with runes.

A mousemat for hubby, something programming related, geeky, wow or final fantasy related.

Candles in christmassy, cinnamon, or 'red' smell.

Hearthstone pillows like these here http://www.wists.com/KatyMai/c0252a635a7f3b46e0bd2f0cbec4d142?offset=0 (http://www.wists.com/KatyMai/c0252a635a7f3b46e0bd2f0cbec4d142?offset=0)

Lavender bunny in any colour/s but green and purple - http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=3 (http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=3)

Earth spirits like these ones - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=317094.0


Supplies.

Embroidery hoops of all sizes.

A new pair of round nosed pliers, mine broke  :(

FQ’s any pattern I just love fabric.

Any yarn, handmade or shop bought.

Glass or gemstone beads.

Buttons, in blues and purples.

Fake fur, any sizes including scraps.

Any jewellery findings, I can always use more.



Thankyou in advance for claiming me :D

Crafty Wishes

 ;D = BIG WISH!

Sewing
NEW -- ;D ;D Nook cover! I like this style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/699a4d5dbeb717c0ae9d69e6aacd829c?offset=0) a lot. (Also, like the one by mimiw! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5344228500/) I got a regular Nook (NOT nook color) for Christmas and I'd like some cases! I put some fabric examples and such here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/nook_fabric) and some here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/pillow) for fabric inspiration ideas.

 -- ;D  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.

   -- 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 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.

 -- Any sewn wist item You can see all the sewing items I've wisted here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/sewing).


Knitting & Crochet
NEW -- Cable Knit Fingerless Gloves (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/e39633c25869975e347c00f8d7a2054b?offset=40). I love the color, the cable (I love cable!!) and the fact they're a soft acrylic for easy care. Yes please!! (Please note, I have tiny wrists - like 5.5" - so aim for small width please!)

 -- 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 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.

 -- Any knitted wist items. You can see all the wisted knit items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/knitting).


Other
NEW  ;D ;D -- Chibi Marty or Doc BttF Plush. Probably bigger than a medium, but I want to list it anyway. Craftster Noxika makes these awesome plush (like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370204.msg4353051#msg4353051) and this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=362199.msg4251004#msg4251004)) and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE one made of Marty McFly or Doc Brown from Back to the Future. Can't you just imagine how awesome a Marty with his orange "life vest" jacket or Doc with his wild hair in this style plush would be??

--  ;D Batik/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 Decorated T-Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. Fitted (not the "unisex" ones that are boxy) in V-neck, scoop or whatever (just nothing that's so low cut it requires another shirt underneath) in size small or US 4 equivalent. (I like the ones from Target a lot but am open to others too!) 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.

 --  Stained Glass Item - 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.)

 --  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.

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns) or my amazon wishlist (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/wishlist/397IKAEGOJ51E/), my etsy favorites (http://www.etsy.com/people/PhoenixFireDesigns/favorites), the colors I like, my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like! I KEEP MY WISTS UPDATED SO IF IT'S ON THE LIST, I WANT IT! :D


Craft Supplies
--  ;D ;D Jewelry Presentation Displays I have one in black but I desperately need a necklace one in WHITE for photographing my work. I could also use a necklace/earring combo and a bracelet hand. Used ones in good shape are fine too! Any kind of leather/leatherette/vinyl is awesome. These are examples of 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 use more faceted, briolette and other cut stones. Here are some I really am coveting.
(Listings shown are just for example of the stone. Can easily be smaller quantities for more reasonable cost!)
 - Any gems on my Etsy favorites - Bunches listed here (http://www.etsy.com/people/PhoenixFireDesigns/favorites)
 -Chrome Diopside Beads - Especially teardrops or briolettes or rondelles would be nice. Example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380270868769)
 - Mexican Fire Opal Rondelle Beads - example (http://cgi.ebay.com/Multi-Color-Mexican-Fire-Opal-4mm-Rondelle-Beads-15-/360292173664) or example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/41280384/7-inches-mexican-fire-opal-faceted)
 - Hesonite Garnet - example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/40070013/nice-quality-gorgeous-colour-hesonite)
 - Sapphire Rondelle Beads - In a red/orange/yellow combo. example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/49315448/aa-songia-sapphire-briolette-drops-20) or example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50895895/take-10-percent-off-entire-store)

 -- 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 and any 16, 22 or 24 gauge wire is in any color is always useful. (Especially if it's silver-plated!) The Artistic Wire (http://www.artbeads.com/awr24svr10.html) brand is my favorite.

NEW -- Ninja Men Cookie Cutters (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/931973dabb452b905f137bfb7aec059e?offset=20). OMG, how freakin' awesome are these???

NEW --  ;D Puffy Heart Pendant Instructions/Kit I've wanted to learn how to make this forever! Bonus would be if I had some of the materials needed as well like the stringing material. There's a full kit HERE (http://www.etsy.com/listing/54237413/crystal-puffy-heart-pendant-kit) and another HERE (http://www.etsy.com/listing/46025864/crystal-puffy-heart-pendant-kit) which is totally helpful and even more awesome!!

NEW -- Button Maker I think it'd be fun to make my own buttons. Some sort of starter kit would be great. I've never made any before. Can totally be used/pre-owned!



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!
 -- Beading/Wire-Wrapping/Jewelry magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! ;D

Post by: Trish Fantastic on February 01, 2011 12:13:52 PM
I claim Dawl for a machine apron. :)

1/0/0     first claim EVER.

Hi! My name is Trish and I live on the coast in New Haven, Connecticut (UNITED STATES) with my wonderful husband and our two silly dogs, (pitbull rescues.) I am about to turn 31, how did that happen?! I feel much younger. I am originally from Texas and don't think I will ever get used to winter. I am also in school to be an Art teacher. Sewing and embroidery are currently my most loved crafts but I also knit, crochet and paint. (And dabble in all kinds of other stuff.)

My favorite color is kelly green, especially paired with browns, khakis and blues. I am not really a fan of bright primary colors paired together, much more into neutrals. I LOVE the look of natural linen. Themes I like:

forest animals/foxes
fantasy (dragons especially) My favorite book(s) is A Song of Ice and Fire.
Zombies
classic video games, (Zelda, Gradius, Super Mario Bros are the faves)
Sideshow “Freaks”
dia los de muerte/ sugar skulls
I collect Maneki Neko's (Lucky Cats.)
Rollerskating (non derby but not artistic either)
Artsy Imagery of Classic Nintendo, vintage typewriters, classic vespas, vintage cameras, vintage sewing machines.
I think maps are also pretty nifty.


I don't wear jewelry of any kind.
I don't really like floral prints unless they are very modern. (some muted florals for embroidery hoops may be an exception, look at my wists for ideas.)
I am allergic to cigarette/cigar/marijuana smoke
Also allergic to perfumes/flowery scents/patchouli (most essential oils in soaps and stuff are ok)
Nothing religious please
clothing/aprons etc – Stencils, Screenprints or Applique only please. No iron ons or puffy paint or any of that stuff that tends to not last very long at all.


BIG WISHES = *** but I will love anything you choose to make/send. Thank you for choosing me!!!!!!

Craft Items

- A Wisty Surprise!
***Embroidery or Cross stitch in hoops based on my themes or tastes in my Wists for my Hoopla wall! Make sure you include a 'signature' of some sort and date on the back
*** Dust cover for my sewing machine, with accessory pockets – Brother LS-2125 (see wist for fabric ideas)
***Dust cover for my serger – Brother Lock 1034D (see wist for fabric ideas)
-Berkely Illustrations print OR embroidery hoop/art inspired by, I mean inspired, don't copy his art without permission!      http://www.etsy.com/shop/berkleyillustration (His male characters only, for some reason I just like them better!)
-Knit or crocheted socks (I wear US womens 7 in shoes)
-Some fun Address labels (PM me for the info!)
-small pouch with cassette tape embroidered, stenciled, etc on it.
***Something like this spelling out my last name LOTER. Doesn't need to be huge, just want to put it over my doorway in the living room, so maybe at least 5 inches tall? completely covered in maps preferred.  http://www.etsy.com/listing/55275000/ciao-baby
-handmade soap
-Handmade sugar scrub, made with essential oils.
-bath bombs, made with essential oils
***would love some art or embroidery of my two pitbulls (I can send pics!)
***Full apron with a picture of a goose that appears to be preparing to cook something, so with a spatula or rolling pin, wearing an apron, etc. It should also have this caption-- “The only recipe I know is seeds!” (inspired by the best podcast ever My Brother, My Brother and Me)
-Big Band Theory inspired embroidery hoop art.
-dog poop bag holder to connect to leash (2 please) I use the rolls on bags.
-A rollerskating themed bag to carry my skates and pads in, I prefer messenger style or at least with an adjustable strap that I can wear over my shoulder. A pocket big enough to hold my extra set of wheels would be awesome! (NOT DERBY)
-Texas themed embroidery hoop.
***Arm Warmers something like this- http://bigpavillion.com/resources/arm+warmers+framed.JPG  in colors that I like, not these colors. Basically I like longer arm warmers with thumb holes and not too chunky yarn. I also like stripes.


Something crafted for my husband with one of these themes. He likes all kinds of stuff but use your best judgment. He is more open minded than most towards crafty things but still has a sharp eye towards things that look 'homemade.'

-NES final fantasy imagery (wall art, embroidery, pillow, blanket, etc)
-Something with unicorns like Lisa Frank style, or just totally over the top. Rainbows are a plus. Double rainbows are a double plus!
-His favorite color is hot pink. He is ridiculous by the way.
***Dungeons and Dragons related stuff (He would LOVE some terrain stuff, little trees, foam rocks, flocking, fences, etc scaled to the plastic D&D minis. If you make this stuff you could just make his year. Also stuff like a bag of holding, drawstring bags of different sizes, etc.)
-Classic Vespa stuff
-vegan chocolate
-Krav Maga – He teaches it.


Craft Supplies
previously lightly loved supplies more than welcome!

-vintage or just really cool maps.
-sewing pattern weights (crafted or bought)
-needle felting kit with instructions
***punch embroidery kit with instructions
-DMC thread
-Aida cloth in fun colors
-book binding board/millboard/etc.
-a bone folder, (no bones needed)
-natural linen, colored linen or similar fabric for embroidery
-Embroidery thread bobbins and box
***Fabric, kawaii or bright fun prints. Mod stuff. I am a big fan of Ikea fabrics for example. Also maybe some damask printed fabric. Fat Quarters or bigger only please.  No children's character fabrics unless they are specifically related to one of my themes.
***Postcard Stamper to make my own postcards. http://www.etsy.com/listing/55710683/antique-floral-post-card-mounted-rubber?ref=sr_list_3&ga_search_query=postcard++rubber+stamp&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=&includes

-cotton webbing like this http://www.tallpoppycraft.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=63&products_id=703  all colors appreciated.

***transfer paper for my Silhouette SD

-dog surprises? My dogs are named Amy Doghouse and Conan the Barkbarian
***Sewing magazines, just no Threads as I have the complete collection. Readymade before 2008, or other crafty magazines.

Hi! My name is Michelle and I live in North Carolina.

Post by: Opalgryphon on February 01, 2011 08:05:33 PM
I claim padfoot for a "Hampton the Hamper" Pig and Pirate themed stitch markers :)

1/0/0

Hi there!  My name's Kim, I'm 28, and I've been married to my fantastic hubby for 10 years.  We have a french bulldog (Gizmo! (http://gizzymoto.weebly.com/)) and a pug (Lola).

We're California transplants, living in Austin, TX and loving it! I'm a reader, a maker, and a painter. Trying to become a bit of a do-er and taking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, and Boxing classes. I do, after all, need to burn off some of the food that I love so much - Indian Buffet here I come!

Likes: My favorite colors are purple, dark teal, turquoise, acid green, brown, charcoal, and occasionally pink when it's mixed into a kind of mod pattern that isn't over the top girly. I'm also a fan of colorful polka dots, tentacled critters, goldfish, and owls :)

Dislikes: Disney, teddy bears, lacy frou-frou stuff, grandma prints, cabbage roses, puff paint. Puppies and kittens are awesome when I can play with them, not so much when they're crafted.


Crafts

~Wisty Goodness (http://www.wists.com/opalgryphon).  It's updated, and I love everything...just ignore the obviously store bought goodies
~Anything French Bulldog.  Pugs are popular, so it's easier to find pug things, but not frenchies.
~Fabric Napkins Printed, stamped, stenciled, or not.
~Painted Umbrella like this one: Spotty Umbrella (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=359326.0)  I'm not terribly attached to the color, but I love the polka dots!  Or maybe tentacles? An Octopus?
~Mythical creature "taxidermy" - From the cute (http://www.etsy.com/listing/13191117/large-loch-ness-monster-feltidermy)  to creepy (http://www.instructables.com/id/Halloween-decor-werewolf-head/)
~Bleach stenciled t-shirts or tank tops with animals Owls, birds, goldfish, giraffes, pretty much anything that's not super cutesy. Women's fitted shirts, (Target, or Old Navy type, I know they always have a ton at Goodwill) size small.
~Decorated Recipe Binder that I can add recipes to.
~Pendants/Necklaces Living Moss Pendant (http://www.etsy.com/listing/66612789/living-moss-pendant-on-sterling-ball),  Painted Wood Pendant (http://www.etsy.com/shop/ZephyrWoods?ref=seller_info),  Stained Glass Pendant (http://www.etsy.com/shop/BelloGlass?ref=seller_info)
~Embroidered Cuff Bracelet (http://www.etsy.com/listing/65265581/hand-embroidered-wool-felt-cuff-bracelet)  I like the whole thing, but it could be cool with a pattern like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/47835851/clutch-davey) too!
~Wall art My wist (http://www.wists.com/opalgryphon) and my DA wishlist (http://opalgryphon.deviantart.com/wishlist/) probably give you a good idea what I like.   and one more (http://mattbenn8.deviantart.com/art/Sea-of-Green-13352200?q=favby%3Aopalgryphon%2F1497583&qo=37).
~Re-usable lunch bag (Small grocery bag size?)  Use your imagination, but it has to fit a microwave meal and some fruit, lol.
~Animal or Monster Stuffies Sewn, not knit or crocheted.  They're lovely, but I have plenty of amis!
~Cute Needle Book
~Healthy Snacks Home made beef jerky, granola, trail mix, dried fruit, fruit leathers, etc.  Whatever you can make that would ship well!



Supplies
I will be happy to take used items and project leftovers off your hands!

~Lead Free Solder
~Soldering Iron Rheostat
~Old clock parts (hands, gears, etc.)
~Fun and funky fabrics like a lot of the stuff Spoonflower (http://www.spoonflower.com/market_browse?color_one=0&color_two=0&category_one=8&recent_cat=8&recent_choice=0) sells.   If you know of a cheaper place to get similar fabrics, let me know! Fat Quarters, and even decent sized scraps are cool :)
~Colorful fat quarters Different from above, I'm talking about the usual ones you find in any craft store.
~Old unwanted comic books that can be chopped into decoupage fodder.
~Precious Metal Clay  Even a little bit to experiment with.
~Ceramic marking pens  I think it bakes on in the oven.
~Throw pillow forms/filler
~My grandma had these little plastic bobbin holders that clipped onto a spool of thread so you could keep the bobbins with the thread they matched.  If anyone has ever seen these or knows where to find them, I'd love you forever!
~Patterns from my wist or any fun amigurumi or plushie patterns (knit, crochet or sewn)
~Cardstock enough to make a lamp (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=231484.0). 14+ pieces?
~Copyright free bug and critter photos (as in, you took the photo and don't mind if I make a watercolor painting of it) I'm thinking about starting a new "Critters" series of paintings.
~Origami Paper
~Fabric Transfer Printer Paper
~Printable Fabric
~Rotary Cutter
~Shrinky Dink Sheets
~Pins and needles I'll take any size or type!
~Thread of any color
~Interfacing
~Stamp/Lino carving supplies


Extras

~One (or more!) of your favorite "lite" recipes  I've been having a blast cooking new healthy tasty foods.  I'd love to make myself a "Craftster Cookbook"

Hello, My name is Monica. I live in North Carolina at the beach. I am a happy go lucky girl not to uptight and just love to have fun and enjoy crafts and homemade gifts are wonderful. I have cancer I have to keep saying it as I just know I will kick the shit out of it and win..I am raising my 2 grandkids. It is hard to really do it again but I love being with them and know they are doing great and happy well adjusted kids. I have 2 dogs now as my Buster passed away on the 14th  Cry My heart broke that day. I miss him so much but he had almost 16 years and was never abused like our other 2 that we rescued so he has always had a charmed life.

 I really hate neon, I don't like country looking, I totally dislike granny looking fabric and OMG the Andy Warhol GAG..don't know why I just cant stand it.

 We cant have anything from an indoor smokers home, you must wash hands good if outdoor smokers as it is the sticky tar stuff not really the stinky smoke that my granddaughter can be around.

I would like to claim redstar13 for a reusable shopping bag and possibly some supplies.

1/0/0

Hello.  I am puzzler and I live in Connecticut, US.  I like simple and useful things.  I love the idea that something was re-purposed or recycled, so if you can be “green” while crafting something for me- that would be wonderful. Please don't send me anything pink.  I like green/gray/blue colors or black and white combinations.  Any peaceful shades or patterns are OK.  Thank you! :)

Things I would love to get:

CRAFTS:

Writing journal/altered book.  (mixed papers would be great) Perhaps something with writing prompts or ideas?

Fabric bucket (bucket/bag made of fabric for either my yarn or fabric storage, etc)

zippered bag, something around 5x9 inches made from cotton fabric.

wallet  -see different examples on my wist

water bottle bag/holder

“How to” Kit (quilting, embroidery/needlework, felting, cross stitch, whatever your specialty happens to be). 

I would LOVE this kind of slippers: http://wists.com/puzzler/e3fd698d80ecb769570e9eba3c942033?offset=0 (http://wists.com/puzzler/e3fd698d80ecb769570e9eba3c942033?offset=0) or other slippers from my wist.  Size 9-10

Sandwich wrap (something like this, for example: http://www.wists.com/puzzler/2fb140159c5154d0ef456d0d15cc68f9?offset=0 (http://www.wists.com/puzzler/2fb140159c5154d0ef456d0d15cc68f9?offset=0)  )

Snack baggies  (one or two) (like this, for instance: http://www.wists.com/puzzler/2fb140159c5154d0ef456d0d15cc68f9?offset=0 (http://www.wists.com/puzzler/2fb140159c5154d0ef456d0d15cc68f9?offset=0)  )

Anything from my wist: http://wists.com/puzzler (http://wists.com/puzzler)

CRAFT SUPPLIES:

Circular needles – ANY size!
Cable needles
tapestry needle
stitch markers
quilting tools or supplies
 black inkpads
any natural yarn (wool, cotton) in peaceful colors.

EXTRAS:

Books or magazines with knitting, crochet or sewing projects. I am more interested in great patterns, than in the “how to” do these crafts. 

 Please feel free to ask me any questions.  Thanks for reading and thanks if you want to make me something!   :)

I claim puzzler for a How to Cross Stitch kit

This is my second claim, 0 sent, 0 recieved

Hi I’m Katy and I live with my husband in the UK. We are both rather geeky though I’m a nature/animal lover as well. I’m a full time student studying for a BA in Creative Writing. I love greens, blues and purples, anything tree themed and animals of all kinds. I’m into games such as Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft, Professor Layton, the new Mario Wii game and all the old point and click classics. I’m not a big fan of really heavy scents as they give me a headache and I’m allergic to peanuts.

Crafts.

A Wisty surprisehttp://www.wists.com/KatyMai (http://www.wists.com/KatyMai)

Decorated t-shirts with something geeky ( you know something like ‘There´s no place like 127.0.0.1’ written on it) or Mario based for my hubby. He’s XXL in British sizes and would prefer a black base colour.

Anything final fantasy based, seriously anything, we are both in love with them especially FFX and FFVII.

Tree based wall art, I love the new house we have moved into but oh my gosh the walls are bare. Check out my wist for some ideas.

A messenger bag for me to use for college, preferably in a gothic or hippy style.

A small embroidered pouch for me to keep my rune set in. Preferably with a Nordic/gothic/wiccan theme, Yggdrasil for example would be great.

I really really need a new wallet. No coin pocket, just room for notes and cards would be perfect. For ideas on fabrics I like greens and blues and purples.

My tea towels have holes in them so I’d love some new ones to go in our new kitchen. Preferably with a geeky/Mario/WoW theme or a nature theme.

Thanks to moving house we now have a dining room table but no settings for it, some place mats and matching coasters would be great!

Handmade lined or unlined journal.

A small shrine based around trees and gemstones.

A pottery spoon rest.

A DSi case in a naturey or Mario theme.

A decorated votive candle holder in a tree theme, don’t mind if it’s etched or painted or what but it needs to be able to have a candle lit in it so maybe not papercraft!

A charm bracelet decorated with runes.

A mousemat for hubby, something programming related, geeky, wow or final fantasy related.

Candles in christmassy, cinnamon, or 'red' smell.

Hearthstone pillows like these here http://www.wists.com/KatyMai/c0252a635a7f3b46e0bd2f0cbec4d142?offset=0 (http://www.wists.com/KatyMai/c0252a635a7f3b46e0bd2f0cbec4d142?offset=0)

Lavender bunny in any colour/s but green and purple - http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=3 (http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=3)

Earth spirits like these ones - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=317094.0


Supplies.

Embroidery hoops of all sizes.

A new pair of round nosed pliers, mine broke  :(

FQ’s any pattern I just love fabric.

Any yarn, handmade or shop bought.

Glass or gemstone beads.

Buttons, in blues and purples.

Fake fur, any sizes including scraps.

Any jewellery findings, I can always use more.



Thankyou in advance for claiming me :D

Crafty Wishes

 ;D = BIG WISH!

Sewing
NEW -- ;D ;D Nook cover! I like this style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/699a4d5dbeb717c0ae9d69e6aacd829c?offset=0) a lot. (Also, like the one by mimiw! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5344228500/) I got a regular Nook (NOT nook color) for Christmas and I'd like some cases! I put some fabric examples and such here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/nook_fabric) and some here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/pillow) for fabric inspiration ideas.

 -- ;D  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.

   -- 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 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.

 -- Any sewn wist item You can see all the sewing items I've wisted here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/sewing).


Knitting & Crochet
NEW -- Cable Knit Fingerless Gloves (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/e39633c25869975e347c00f8d7a2054b?offset=40). I love the color, the cable (I love cable!!) and the fact they're a soft acrylic for easy care. Yes please!! (Please note, I have tiny wrists - like 5.5" - so aim for small width please!)

 -- 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 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.

 -- Any knitted wist items. You can see all the wisted knit items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/knitting).


Other
NEW  ;D ;D -- Chibi Marty or Doc BttF Plush. Probably bigger than a medium, but I want to list it anyway. Craftster Noxika makes these awesome plush (like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370204.msg4353051#msg4353051) and this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=362199.msg4251004#msg4251004)) and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE one made of Marty McFly or Doc Brown from Back to the Future. Can't you just imagine how awesome a Marty with his orange "life vest" jacket or Doc with his wild hair in this style plush would be??

--  ;D Batik/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 Decorated T-Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. Fitted (not the "unisex" ones that are boxy) in V-neck, scoop or whatever (just nothing that's so low cut it requires another shirt underneath) in size small or US 4 equivalent. (I like the ones from Target a lot but am open to others too!) 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.

 --  Stained Glass Item - 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.)

 --  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.

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns) or my amazon wishlist (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/wishlist/397IKAEGOJ51E/), my etsy favorites (http://www.etsy.com/people/PhoenixFireDesigns/favorites), the colors I like, my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like! I KEEP MY WISTS UPDATED SO IF IT'S ON THE LIST, I WANT IT! :D


Craft Supplies
--  ;D ;D Jewelry Presentation Displays I have one in black but I desperately need a necklace one in WHITE for photographing my work. I could also use a necklace/earring combo and a bracelet hand. Used ones in good shape are fine too! Any kind of leather/leatherette/vinyl is awesome. These are examples of 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 use more faceted, briolette and other cut stones. Here are some I really am coveting.
(Listings shown are just for example of the stone. Can easily be smaller quantities for more reasonable cost!)
 - Any gems on my Etsy favorites - Bunches listed here (http://www.etsy.com/people/PhoenixFireDesigns/favorites)
 -Chrome Diopside Beads - Especially teardrops or briolettes or rondelles would be nice. Example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380270868769)
 - Mexican Fire Opal Rondelle Beads - example (http://cgi.ebay.com/Multi-Color-Mexican-Fire-Opal-4mm-Rondelle-Beads-15-/360292173664) or example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/41280384/7-inches-mexican-fire-opal-faceted)
 - Hesonite Garnet - example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/40070013/nice-quality-gorgeous-colour-hesonite)
 - Sapphire Rondelle Beads - In a red/orange/yellow combo. example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/49315448/aa-songia-sapphire-briolette-drops-20) or example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50895895/take-10-percent-off-entire-store)

 -- 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 and any 16, 22 or 24 gauge wire is in any color is always useful. (Especially if it's silver-plated!) The Artistic Wire (http://www.artbeads.com/awr24svr10.html) brand is my favorite.

NEW -- Ninja Men Cookie Cutters (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/931973dabb452b905f137bfb7aec059e?offset=20). OMG, how freakin' awesome are these???

NEW --  ;D Puffy Heart Pendant Instructions/Kit I've wanted to learn how to make this forever! Bonus would be if I had some of the materials needed as well like the stringing material. There's a full kit HERE (http://www.etsy.com/listing/54237413/crystal-puffy-heart-pendant-kit) and another HERE (http://www.etsy.com/listing/46025864/crystal-puffy-heart-pendant-kit) which is totally helpful and even more awesome!!

NEW -- Button Maker I think it'd be fun to make my own buttons. Some sort of starter kit would be great. I've never made any before. Can totally be used/pre-owned!



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!
 -- Beading/Wire-Wrapping/Jewelry magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! ;D

Hello.  I am puzzler and I live in Connecticut, US.  I like simple and useful things.  I love the idea that something was re-purposed or recycled, so if you can be “green” while crafting something for me- that would be wonderful. Please don't send me anything pink.  I like green/gray/blue colors or black and white combinations.  Any peaceful shades or patterns are OK.  Thank you! :)

Things I would love to get:

CRAFTS:

Writing journal/altered book.  (mixed papers would be great) Perhaps something with writing prompts or ideas?

Fabric bucket (bucket/bag made of fabric for either my yarn or fabric storage, etc)

zippered bag, something around 5x9 inches made from cotton fabric.

wallet  -see different examples on my wist

water bottle bag/holder

“How to” Kit (quilting, embroidery/needlework, felting, cross stitch thank you KatyMai, whatever your specialty happens to be). 

I would LOVE this kind of slippers: http://wists.com/puzzler/e3fd698d80ecb769570e9eba3c942033?offset=0 or other slippers from my wist.  Size 9-10

Sandwich wrap (something like this, for example: http://www.wists.com/puzzler/2fb140159c5154d0ef456d0d15cc68f9?offset=0  )

Snack baggies  (one or two) (like this, for instance: http://www.wists.com/puzzler/2fb140159c5154d0ef456d0d15cc68f9?offset=0  )

Anything from my wist: http://wists.com/puzzler

CRAFT SUPPLIES:

Circular needles – ANY size!

Cable needles

tapestry needle

stitch markers

quilting tools or supplies

 black inkpads

any natural yarn (wool, cotton)

EXTRAS:

Books or magazines with knitting, crochet or sewing projects. I am more interested in patterns, than in the “how to” do these crafts. 

 Please feel free to ask me any questions.  Thanks for reading and thanks if you want to make me something!   :)

Hi, I'm Roxanne!  My daughter Lana is now in first grade and is loving it.  She is our pride and joy.  Lana has grown up on Craftster love and has received so many wonderful and thoughtfully made presents her whole life.  So THANK YOU to all of you!!   I have a hubby who helps me craft when he can.  He’s the one who runs off to the craft store to buy a craft supply I missed or off to the PO to mail my packages.  I'm originally from Hawaii, so even though I live in Maryland now I'm a local girl at heart! I've dabbled in lots of different crafts.  My true love is pottery, but I haven't done that in quite a while now.  I am starting to do paper crafts, but I’ll always be true to my beading!

Please nothing made with vinyl.  No wist picks please.  I really need to redo mine as I've received much from it already.

BIG WISHES ARE IN BOLD, but everything is wanted and will be loved.

I claim atsuko for a scrappy needle roll and some faceted semi-precious beads :)

2/0/0

Hi there!  My name's Kim, I'm 28, and I've been married to my fantastic hubby for 10 years.  We have a french bulldog (Gizmo! (http://gizzymoto.weebly.com/)) and a pug (Lola).

We're California transplants, living in Austin, TX and loving it! I'm a reader, a maker, and a painter. Trying to become a bit of a do-er and taking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, and Boxing classes. I do, after all, need to burn off some of the food that I love so much - Indian Buffet here I come!

Likes: My favorite colors are purple, dark teal, turquoise, acid green, brown, charcoal, and occasionally pink when it's mixed into a kind of mod pattern that isn't over the top girly. I'm also a fan of colorful polka dots, tentacled critters, goldfish, and owls :)

Dislikes: Disney, teddy bears, lacy frou-frou stuff, grandma prints, cabbage roses, puff paint. Puppies and kittens are awesome when I can play with them, not so much when they're crafted.


Crafts

~Wisty Goodness (http://www.wists.com/opalgryphon).  It's updated, and I love everything...just ignore the obviously store bought goodies
~Anything French Bulldog.  Pugs are popular, so it's easier to find pug things, but not frenchies.
~Fabric Napkins Printed, stamped, stenciled, or not. Thanks Babalina58!!
~Painted Umbrella like this one: Spotty Umbrella (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=359326.0)  I'm not terribly attached to the color, but I love the polka dots!  Or maybe tentacles? An Octopus?
~Mythical creature "taxidermy" - From the cute (http://www.etsy.com/listing/13191117/large-loch-ness-monster-feltidermy)  to creepy (http://www.instructables.com/id/Halloween-decor-werewolf-head/)
~Bleach stenciled t-shirts or tank tops with animals Owls, birds, goldfish, giraffes, pretty much anything that's not super cutesy. Women's fitted shirts, (Target, or Old Navy type, I know they always have a ton at Goodwill) size small.
~Decorated Recipe Binder that I can add recipes to.
~Pendants/Necklaces Living Moss Pendant (http://www.etsy.com/listing/66612789/living-moss-pendant-on-sterling-ball),  Painted Wood Pendant (http://www.etsy.com/shop/ZephyrWoods?ref=seller_info),  Stained Glass Pendant (http://www.etsy.com/shop/BelloGlass?ref=seller_info)
~Embroidered Cuff Bracelet (http://www.etsy.com/listing/65265581/hand-embroidered-wool-felt-cuff-bracelet)  I like the whole thing, but it could be cool with a pattern like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/47835851/clutch-davey) too!
~Wall art My wist (http://www.wists.com/opalgryphon) and my DA wishlist (http://opalgryphon.deviantart.com/wishlist/) probably give you a good idea what I like.   and one more (http://mattbenn8.deviantart.com/art/Sea-of-Green-13352200?q=favby%3Aopalgryphon%2F1497583&qo=37).
~Re-usable lunch bag (Small grocery bag size?)  Use your imagination, but it has to fit a microwave meal and some fruit, lol.
~Animal Stuffies Sewn, not knit or crocheted.  They're lovely, but I have plenty of amis!
~Cute Needle Book
~Healthy Snacks Home made beef jerky, granola, trail mix, dried fruit, fruit leathers, etc.  Whatever you can make that would ship well!



Supplies
I will be happy to take used items and project leftovers off your hands!

~Lead Free Solder
~Soldering Iron Rheostat
~Old clock parts (hands, gears, etc.)
~Fun and funky fabrics like a lot of the stuff Spoonflower (http://www.spoonflower.com/market_browse?color_one=0&color_two=0&category_one=8&recent_cat=8&recent_choice=0) sells.   If you know of a cheaper place to get similar fabrics, let me know! Fat Quarters, and even decent sized scraps are cool :)
~Colorful fat quarters Different from above, I'm talking about the usual ones you find in any craft store.
~Old unwanted comic books that can be chopped into decoupage fodder.
~Precious Metal Clay  Even a little bit to experiment with.
~Ceramic marking pens  I think it bakes on in the oven.
~Throw pillow forms/filler
~My grandma had these little plastic bobbin holders that clipped onto a spool of thread so you could keep the bobbins with the thread they matched.  If anyone has ever seen these or knows where to find them, I'd love you forever!
~Patterns from my wist or any fun amigurumi or plushie patterns (knit, crochet or sewn)
~Cardstock enough to make a lamp (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=231484.0). 14+ pieces?
~Copyright free bug and critter photos (as in, you took the photo and don't mind if I make a watercolor painting of it) I'm thinking about starting a new "Critters" series of paintings.
~Origami Paper
~Fabric Transfer Printer Paper
~Printable Fabric
~Rotary Cutter
~Shrinky Dink Sheets
~Pins and needles I'll take any size or type!
~Thread of any color
~Interfacing
~Stamp/Lino carving supplies


Extras

~One (or more!) of your favorite "lite" recipes  I've been having a blast cooking new healthy tasty foods.  I'd love to make myself a "Craftster Cookbook"
~Hard Candy I'm on a diet, and need to make it last, lol!
~Decaf Tea LOVE peppermint and non-fruity herbals :)

I'm claiming missmoppet for some yarn and possibly some other supplies. :)

2/0/0

Hi! My name is Trish and I live on the coast in New Haven, Connecticut (UNITED STATES) with my wonderful husband and our two silly dogs, (pitbull rescues.) I am about to turn 31, how did that happen?! I feel much younger. I am originally from Texas and don't think I will ever get used to winter. I am also in school to be an Art teacher. Sewing and embroidery are currently my most loved crafts but I also knit, crochet and paint. (And dabble in all kinds of other stuff.)

My favorite color is kelly green, especially paired with browns, khakis and blues. I am not really a fan of bright primary colors paired together, much more into neutrals. I LOVE the look of natural linen. Themes I like:

forest animals/foxes
fantasy (dragons especially) My favorite book(s) is A Song of Ice and Fire.
Zombies
classic video games, (Zelda, Gradius, Super Mario Bros are the faves)
Sideshow “Freaks”
dia los de muerte/ sugar skulls
I collect Maneki Neko's (Lucky Cats.)
Rollerskating (non derby but not artistic either)
Artsy Imagery of Classic Nintendo, vintage typewriters, classic vespas, vintage cameras, vintage sewing machines.
I think maps are also pretty nifty.


I don't wear jewelry of any kind.
I don't really like floral prints unless they are very modern. (some muted florals for embroidery hoops may be an exception, look at my wists for ideas.)
I am allergic to cigarette/cigar/marijuana smoke
Also allergic to perfumes/flowery scents/patchouli (most essential oils in soaps and stuff are ok)
Nothing religious please
clothing/aprons etc – Stencils, Screenprints or Applique only please. No iron ons or puffy paint or any of that stuff that tends to not last very long at all.


BIG WISHES = *** but I will love anything you choose to make/send. Thank you for choosing me!!!!!!

Craft Items

- A Wisty Surprise!
***Embroidery or Cross stitch in hoops based on my themes or tastes in my Wists for my Hoopla wall! Make sure you include a 'signature' of some sort and date on the back
*** Dust cover for my sewing machine, with accessory pockets – Brother LS-2125 (see wist for fabric ideas)
***Dust cover for my serger – Brother Lock 1034D (see wist for fabric ideas)
-Berkely Illustrations print OR embroidery hoop/art inspired by, I mean inspired, don't copy his art without permission!      http://www.etsy.com/shop/berkleyillustration (His male characters only, for some reason I just like them better!)
-Knit or crocheted socks (I wear US womens 7 in shoes)
-Some fun Address labels (PM me for the info!)
-small pouch with cassette tape embroidered, stenciled, etc on it.
***Something like this spelling out my last name LOTER. Doesn't need to be huge, just want to put it over my doorway in the living room, so maybe at least 5 inches tall? completely covered in maps preferred.  http://www.etsy.com/listing/55275000/ciao-baby
-handmade soap
-Handmade sugar scrub, made with essential oils.
-bath bombs, made with essential oils
***would love some art or embroidery of my two pitbulls (I can send pics!)
***Full apron with a picture of a goose that appears to be preparing to cook something, so with a spatula or rolling pin, wearing an apron, etc. It should also have this caption-- “The only recipe I know is seeds!” (inspired by the best podcast ever My Brother, My Brother and Me)
-Big Band Theory inspired embroidery hoop art.
-dog poop bag holder to connect to leash (2 please) I use the rolls on bags.
-A rollerskating themed bag to carry my skates and pads in, I prefer messenger style or at least with an adjustable strap that I can wear over my shoulder. A pocket big enough to hold my extra set of wheels would be awesome! (NOT DERBY)
-Texas themed embroidery hoop.
***Arm Warmers something like this- http://bigpavillion.com/resources/arm+warmers+framed.JPG  in colors that I like, not these colors. Basically I like longer arm warmers with thumb holes and not too chunky yarn. I also like stripes.


Something crafted for my husband with one of these themes. He likes all kinds of stuff but use your best judgment. He is more open minded than most towards crafty things but still has a sharp eye towards things that look 'homemade.'

-NES final fantasy imagery (wall art, embroidery, pillow, blanket, etc)
-Something with unicorns like Lisa Frank style, or just totally over the top. Rainbows are a plus. Double rainbows are a double plus!
-His favorite color is hot pink. He is ridiculous by the way.
***Dungeons and Dragons related stuff (He would LOVE some terrain stuff, little trees, foam rocks, flocking, fences, etc scaled to the plastic D&D minis. If you make this stuff you could just make his year. Also stuff like a bag of holding, drawstring bags of different sizes, etc.)
-Classic Vespa stuff
-vegan chocolate
-Krav Maga – He teaches it.

-book binding board/millboard/etc.
-a bone folder, (no bones needed)

***Postcard Stamper to make my own postcards. http://www.etsy.com/listing/55710683/antique-floral-post-card-mounted-rubber?ref=sr_list_3&ga_search_query=postcard++rubber+stamp&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=&includes

I claim thedish for a ... don't know what to call it but I intend to make the map covered letters that spell her last name for over her living room doorway

1/0/0

My name is Teresa.  I live in Ga. with my wonderful hubby of 30 years and our two grown daughters ( who have both returned to the nest to finish their educations).  I have a grown stepson and am Mimi to a 13 year old boy and 7 year old girl.   We share our little homestead with a pet cow, mini donkey ( he's something of a cute bully), three pygmy goats, and six cats.

I use swaps to collect OOAK gifts for my friends and family so my wist reflects quite a variety of tastes.  Please read tags/notes carefully if you choose something wisty for color preferences, sizes, etc.  I am completely okay with you taking something from my wist and making it in your favorite medium rather than the one pictured.  I can't tolerate the smell of smoke or lavender.

Crafts:

Enormous Wish Clothing for an 18" doll like the American Girl dolls.  There are examples on my wist, but I would be thrilled with anything you chose to make.  Accessories like hats and purses would be welcome too.

 Huge Wish   A book safe made from one of the classics ( maybe a damaged one or one of those really cheap ones you can get now)

handmade thank you cards in any of these themes:  bees, bugs, crayons, cute cats, cute mushrooms
colorful polka dots and/or stripes

bee themed hanging plastic bag holder ( not huge please)

cat crinkle sack covered in one of these themes:  skulls ( sugar skulls or real looking ones), sushi, pirates, Arsenal soccer, or just black and white

Anything Arsenal themed... really, anything!

yoga pants in women's size 2.  Any color, any style

beaded tree sculpture ( not jewelry) in amber/orange/brown (small, even tiny is fine)

cat tent that looks "piratey"

BIG WISH black scoodie in fleece with hood part lined in something silky so my hair won't get crazy.  I would want silky inside black as well

sz. 2 black and white polka dot swirly skirt ( for a 5' tall woman) ( simple is great, doesn't need to be super swirly, just have a bit of swish in it)

sz. 51/2 mukluks with fake leather soles ( looking for that speed knitter again)

 a set of dryer balls like the ones pixieval made in round 63

Big Wisha set of fabric coasters in cranberry, dark green, and possibly cream ( simple is best)

An altered journal in a world geography theme.  I know almost nothing on the subject and feel that it's time to do something about that.  I intend to teach myself and since its such an extensive subject, it would need to be a kind of large journal/notebook.


supplies:

Thread Heaven
silk embroidery floss ( I realize this is expensive so a teeny little package would be great!)
one of those needlework magnifiers that hang around the neck ( used is great)
wood-look plastic embroidery hoops, especially ovals
wool felt ( scraps are fine, its for a penny rug)(I really want wool felt, not felted wool.. does that make sense?)
any Japanese craft book ( except crochet)
bias tape makers
Enormous Wish  any knitting or weaving loom ( any size, made of anything)
sublime stitching transfers for hand embroidery ( monkey love, zombies, or vital organs) ( It's okay if you've used a couple of the patterns and just send me what you didn't use from the package)
transfer pens
all purpose thread ( new please) (no black, white, blue, green or pink)
any green buttons ( any shade, any size, any amount)
bamboo dpns... I have none so any size would be wonderful


extras:

vintage children's books
Bunny Suicide anything

I am claiming claire313 for some placemats. :)


3/0/0

Hi! My name is Trish and I live on the coast in New Haven, Connecticut (UNITED STATES) with my wonderful husband and our two silly dogs, (pitbull rescues.) I am about to turn 31, how did that happen?! I feel much younger. I am originally from Texas and don't think I will ever get used to winter. I am also in school to be an Art teacher. Sewing and embroidery are currently my most loved crafts but I also knit, crochet and paint. (And dabble in all kinds of other stuff.)

My favorite color is kelly green, especially paired with browns, khakis and blues. I am not really a fan of bright primary colors paired together, much more into neutrals. I LOVE the look of natural linen. Themes I like:

forest animals/foxes
fantasy (dragons especially) My favorite book(s) is A Song of Ice and Fire.
Zombies
classic video games, (Zelda, Gradius, Super Mario Bros are the faves)
Sideshow “Freaks”
dia los de muerte/ sugar skulls
I collect Maneki Neko's (Lucky Cats.)
Rollerskating (non derby but not artistic either)
Artsy Imagery of Classic Nintendo, vintage typewriters, classic vespas, vintage cameras, vintage sewing machines.
I think maps are also pretty nifty.


I don't wear jewelry of any kind.
I don't really like floral prints unless they are very modern. (some muted florals for embroidery hoops may be an exception, look at my wists for ideas.)
I am allergic to cigarette/cigar/marijuana smoke
Also allergic to perfumes/flowery scents/patchouli (most essential oils in soaps and stuff are ok)
Nothing religious please
clothing/aprons etc – Stencils, Screenprints or Applique only please. No iron ons or puffy paint or any of that stuff that tends to not last very long at all.


BIG WISHES = *** but I will love anything you choose to make/send. Thank you for choosing me!!!!!!

Craft Items

- A Wisty Surprise!
***Embroidery or Cross stitch in hoops based on my themes or tastes in my Wists for my Hoopla wall! Make sure you include a 'signature' of some sort and date on the back
*** Dust cover for my sewing machine, with accessory pockets – Brother LS-2125 (see wist for fabric ideas)
***Dust cover for my serger – Brother Lock 1034D (see wist for fabric ideas)
-Berkely Illustrations print OR embroidery hoop/art inspired by, I mean inspired, don't copy his art without permission!      http://www.etsy.com/shop/berkleyillustration (His male characters only, for some reason I just like them better!)
-Knit or crocheted socks (I wear US womens 7 in shoes)
-Some fun Address labels (PM me for the info!)
-small pouch with cassette tape embroidered, stenciled, etc on it.
***Something like this spelling out my last name LOTER. Doesn't need to be huge, just want to put it over my doorway in the living room, so maybe at least 5 inches tall? completely covered in maps preferred.  http://www.etsy.com/listing/55275000/ciao-baby Thank you gamemom42!!!
-handmade soap
-Handmade sugar scrub, made with essential oils.
-bath bombs, made with essential oils
***would love some art or embroidery of my two pitbulls (I can send pics!)
***Full apron with a picture of a goose that appears to be preparing to cook something, so with a spatula or rolling pin, wearing an apron, etc. It should also have this caption-- “The only recipe I know is seeds!” (inspired by the best podcast ever My Brother, My Brother and Me)
-Big Band Theory inspired embroidery hoop art.
-dog poop bag holder to connect to leash (2 please) I use the rolls on bags.
-A rollerskating themed bag to carry my skates and pads in, I prefer messenger style or at least with an adjustable strap that I can wear over my shoulder. A pocket big enough to hold my extra set of wheels would be awesome! (NOT DERBY)
-Texas themed embroidery hoop.
***Arm Warmers something like this- http://bigpavillion.com/resources/arm+warmers+framed.JPG  in colors that I like, not these colors. Basically I like longer arm warmers with thumb holes and not too chunky yarn. I also like stripes.


Something crafted for my husband with one of these themes. He likes all kinds of stuff but use your best judgment. He is more open minded than most towards crafty things but still has a sharp eye towards things that look 'homemade.'

-NES final fantasy imagery (wall art, embroidery, pillow, blanket, etc)
-Something with unicorns like Lisa Frank style, or just totally over the top. Rainbows are a plus. Double rainbows are a double plus!
-His favorite color is hot pink. He is ridiculous by the way.
***Dungeons and Dragons related stuff (He would LOVE some terrain stuff, little trees, foam rocks, flocking, fences, etc scaled to the plastic D&D minis. If you make this stuff you could just make his year. Also stuff like a bag of holding, drawstring bags of different sizes, etc.)
-Classic Vespa stuff
-vegan chocolate
-Krav Maga – He teaches it.


Craft Supplies

-vintage or just really cool maps.
-sewing pattern weights (crafted or bought)
-needle felting kit with instructions
***punch embroidery kit with instructions
-Insul-bright
-DMC thread

-fabric jelly rolls in colors/themes/fabrics I like
-book binding board/millboard/etc.
-a bone folder, (no bones needed)

-Embroidery thread bobbins and box
***Fabric, kawaii or bright fun prints. Mod stuff. I am a big fan of Ikea fabrics for example. Also maybe some damask printed fabric. Fat Quarters or bigger only please.  No children's character fabrics unless they are specifically related to one of my themes.
***Postcard Stamper to make my own postcards. http://www.etsy.com/listing/55710683/antique-floral-post-card-mounted-rubber?ref=sr_list_3&ga_search_query=postcard++rubber+stamp&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=&includes
=tags&includes[1]=title&filter[0]=handmade

-cotton webbing like this http://www.tallpoppycraft.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=63&products_id=703  all colors appreciated.

-dog surprises? My dogs are named Amy Doghouse and Conan the Barkbarian
***Sewing magazines, just no Threads as I have the complete collection. Readymade before 2008, or other crafty magazines.

I claim thedish for some pink (either Vespa or over the top) items for her boy and some address labels.

This is my 1st claim this round.

About Me: I'm 31 (gulp) and living in NJ (double gulp). I'm currently working as a nanny, baking up a storm, and reading lots of books. Oh yeah, and I’m totally, finally, oh-my-goodness pregnant. Due in March! No more fighting off the baby fever! I love chocolate, the ocean and the beach, books, live music, thrifting, vintage, shiny things, and soft things. I love tights and knee socks, I collect recipe cards, old handkerchiefs, tea cups, ephemera, vintage scarves, cookbooks, old books, and aprons. There is a lot more info in my blog (see the link in my signature!) I love many styles, but nothing country or overly cutesy. Please check out my wist for ideas of styles and fabrics that I like.

And an update: It’s a boy!

Wishes:
 Crafted stuff:

For Baby:- Newborn cloth diapers, fitted pocket style, snap or Velcro close, with or without inserts to fit (there are lots of patterns and tutorials here on craftster!)
- A boy baby activity blanket/quilt with fun fabric like Amy Butler, Michael Miller, Anna Maria Horner, Freshcut, etc. No need for real designer labels, it’s just an idea of styles I like. Something with bits he c an play with or pull on.
- A baby blanket like this one but in boy or unisex shades/prints: http://www.dana-made-it.com/2010/11/lucys-baby-blanket.html
- Boy baby clothes or baby safe (ie, they can be machine washed and chewed on!) toys (like cloth cubes or puzzle balls) I don't need any more booties or hats :)
- Baby games like this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/67250071/rainbow-fish-frolic or any of the toys in that shop really!
- Screen printed/stenciled Onesies inspired by any in this shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/katyandzucchini?ref=seller_info&show_panel=true
- A large wet bag: http://www.etsy.com/listing/59276839/zippered-wet-bag-in-sorbet-dot-fast
- A large hanging wet bag for the nursery http://www.kellyscloset.com/Planet-Wise-Hanging-WetDry-Bag_p_3566.html

- A scrabble tile square pillow with the letter J on it
- Absorbent burp cloths and bibs in fun unisex or boy prints (feel free to repurpose terry cloth, use minky fabric, whatever!) I have some on my wist for ideas

Not for Baby  
- Rubber stamps for my new etsy shop to incorporate the name/design somehow. PM me if you can do this, I'd be super excited!
- Knee socks in solid neutral or jewel tones, I’d love a warm knit or crochet pair
-Altered tees like the following, but to fit a big belly:
http://nikkishell.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341bfaf553ef0133efaa6dc7970b-pi or
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=106867.msg1016302#msg1016302 or this:http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10284568 or

- Anybody have an old Gocco they don't use? I'll take your supplies off your hands :)
- Solid Color Felt! Larger pieces (like what you buy by the yard) are great, but I can still use the poly squares you find at most craft stores.
- Michael Moore, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, or Freshcut fabric, even your scraps are fine! Also any other pretty printed fabrics in these styles, but not necessarily designer.
- Got one of these rulers lying around? http://store.scrapbook.com/ch-th92481.html I need one!
- ink pads –pigment ink,  archival and acid free, but I’m super partial to Tsukineko and Tim Holtz (I have lots of metallics, purple, pink, brick, black already)
- Unusual rubber stamps in zetti, victorian, retro, steampunk or background patterns (I'd love a large bird cage or harlequin print)
- Rubber stamp carving tools/supplies (not eraser type)
- any issues of Crap Hound! Even photocopies of your issues work for me! http://www.boingboing.net/2005/07/24/crap-hound-seminal-c.html
- Vintage ephemera, old paper doilies and hankies, old lace, text pages from old books, old foreign language text (think crumbly old, not 80's old :))

Extras:
- I'd love items inspired by anything I've wisted, but please PM me in case it's something I'm making! I also have an Amazon wishlist here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/38KGTSPJ8DPOU
and many etsy faves here: http://www.etsy.com/people/jojobeandesigns
Or feel free to check my blog for ideas!
- Cookbooks or easy sewing books

Thank you in advance for choosing me!

I claim 1watermonkey for artwork featuring Izzy.  My mom and I had a dog that passed away recently by the same name so that's why I picked this.

Claims (1,0,0).

I‘ll be 22 on the 16th.  I’m a stay-at-home wife, who lives in central Arkansas.  My husband and I have two cats and a dog; they are our babies.  I love paper crafts and mixed media.  I love all colors except pastels unless it’s to wear then I only like black/purple/red.  I’m very into occult and gothic stuff, but I also love steam punk, Victorian, kawaii, antique, and things from other cultures.  My house is decorated in a lot of fleur-de-lis and dark woods. 

I do not like Christian things, smoke-smelly things, or drug and alcohol things.  If it’s vampire things, please no Twilight or Vampire Diaries.  Also, please no glitter that can get everywhere.  I'm also not a fan of bath salts or fizzies.

Things in purple are things I really, really, really want, but anything will be well loved.

Crafts I would like:
-Patchwork Fairy Coat - pm for measurements
http://www.etsy.com/shop/greenoakcreations?ref=pr_shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/greenoakcreations?ref=pr_shop)
-Companion Cube Butt Cushion for my husband; he loves sitting on the coffee table to play videogames and his butt gets numb and he steals my couch cushion to sit on the coffee table with...he needs like a chair cushion without the ties and it would be so cool if it had the companion cube pattern on it!!!
-Hoodie w/ Cat Ears
http://www.etsy.com/listing/40776520/kitty-ear-hoodie-jacket-top-diy-handmade (http://www.etsy.com/listing/40776520/kitty-ear-hoodie-jacket-top-diy-handmade)

-Pilloscase/Knot Dress for my niece's b-day (Feb. 20) in a 3/4T in really pretty fabric (pink, yellow, purple)
-Fabric Leaf/Floral Arrangement in blues, browns, greens, reds, and/or golds a little black is ok too.

I would like to claim Eveamlizya for paper scraps and other supplies.

3/0/0

Hello.  I am puzzler and I live in Connecticut, US.  I like simple and useful things.  I love the idea that something was re-purposed or recycled, so if you can be “green” while crafting something for me- that would be wonderful. Please don't send me anything pink.  I like green/gray/blue colors or black and white combinations.  Any peaceful shades or patterns are OK.  Thank you! :)

Things I would love to get:

CRAFTS:

Writing journal/altered book.  (mixed papers would be great) Perhaps something with writing prompts or ideas?

Fabric bucket (bucket/bag made of fabric for either my yarn or fabric storage, etc)

zippered bag, something around 5x9 inches made from cotton fabric.

wallet  -see different examples on my wist

water bottle bag/holder

“How to” Kit (quilting, embroidery/needlework, felting, cross stitch, whatever your specialty happens to be).  

I would LOVE this kind of slippers: http://wists.com/puzzler/e3fd698d80ecb769570e9eba3c942033?offset=0 or other slippers from my wist.  Size 9-10

Sandwich wrap (something like this, for example: http://www.wists.com/puzzler/2fb140159c5154d0ef456d0d15cc68f9?offset=0  )

Snack baggies  (one or two) (like this, for instance: http://www.wists.com/puzzler/2fb140159c5154d0ef456d0d15cc68f9?offset=0  )

Something inspired by Life Aquatic (besides the orange hat!), Black Books, Disc World, Psych or the Office.  For instance, i would love to get a cross stitched logos of any of those shows/movies/books.  But it can be anything.

Anything from my wist: http://wists.com/puzzler

CRAFT SUPPLIES:

Circular needles – ANY size!

Cable needles

tapestry needle

stitch markers

quilting tools or supplies

 black inkpads

any natural yarn (wool, cotton)

zippers

EXTRAS:

Books or magazines with knitting, crochet or sewing projects. I am more interested in patterns, than in the “how to” do these crafts.  

 Please feel free to ask me any questions.  Thanks for reading and thanks if you want to make me something!   :)

I claim Dawl for a beachy earring frame, hoopla & supply surprise!

1/0/0

Hi! I'm Jenn and I'm 33, a programmer, mom to two health-challenged kiddos, married to my high school sweetheart and a complete craft & swap addict. Books are my number one passion in life followed closely by Harry Potter. I run a local meetup group for adult HP fans in the Dallas area. My youngest is 4 months old so reading time is pretty scarce but I make do by listening to audiobooks as I do the chores. A laundry monster has moved into our house and is trying to bury me in burp clothes, sweaters and baby socks so I have lots of chore time to listen. Some of the things I'm interested in/themes I like: hedgehogs (we've owned 7 in recent history though sadly only have one right now), kitsune, mythological creatures, reading, books, photography, mermaids, fairies, art, 80s cartoons, Pixar movies (my fave is Monster's Inc), writing, crafting anything and everything I can get my hands on. I have a thing for colored gel pens & bookmarks. My favorite music in the entire world is Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, though other than that I listen to very little classical and mostly pop. I love blues and greens and muted colors, busy patterns make me cringe and despite graduating from the University of Texas I despise orange.

Allergy Info
I am on a very restricted diet because of my son so edibles aren't a great idea. I can't have any dairy or soy. In addition, my daughter has Cystic Fibrosis and Immune Deficiency so we can't accept crafts from anyone with a CFer in their household. Also, If someone in the household has been sick within the two weeks prior to my swap item being sent I respectfully request that the sender wait until two weeks after everyone is well before sending the item out. I can't accept any crafts from smoking households or that have been exposed to smoke due to my daughter's lung issues.

Thank you so, so much in advance for whomever claims me!

Crafted:
*Hufflepuff Socks like one of the two below:
http://wists.com/tapestrymlp/88883b5733084f7a002878883203a385

Post by: mimiw on February 05, 2011 05:11:37 PM
I claim 1watermonkey for 3T shirts for her son.
This is my 1st claim with 0 sent and 0 received.

My name is Mimi and I am a stay at home mom in West Palm Beach, FL.  I love practical, useful items for myself or for my 2 year old son, Sky.  Love nature and nature inspired items.  Favorite colors are green, blue and brown.  I also like red accents.  Favorite things are octopus, birds and trees.  Most of my house is decorated in hand made items so I always love wall art or other decor.  I am not a girly person and don't use much bath & body stuff.  I am also not a fan of country, babyish or animal prints.  Please do not send me anything purple or pink.  I also don't do jewelry or niknaks.


Crafts:

Wall art that says "I'm sew happy" - vinyl, sewn, painted, whatever!

Reusable snack bags

DVD holder for my car - book/sleeve kind or something like this (but with fun fabric): http://www.etsy.com/listing/63287586/hanging-cd-dvd-video-game-disc-case (http://www.etsy.com/listing/63287586/hanging-cd-dvd-video-game-disc-case)

Skinny knit headbands for a really small headed adult :)  Green, blue, brown or red.

T shirts - size medium, or large if they are fitted.  I don't do jrs. shirts.  I like stenciled, embroidered or dyed.  Maybe a shirt with a little bird on the front side?  Or a robot?  Or a tree!! :)

Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap 67 NOW OPEN FOR CLAIMS
Post by: jemimah on February 05, 2011 06:06:14 PM
I claim mimiw for something pretty inspired by her wist and list.

1st claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

Hello, I’m Kirsten, I’m a full time student. I live in New Zealand, married with two stepsons and two spoilt cats. I love art and I do a lot of drawing and printmaking.

I like most colours, and particularly blue/green/teal/aqua, natural tones, or black and white. I’m not so keen on pastels and pinks/purples (though dusty/dull shades can be nice). For metals, I like silver, copper or antiqued finishes, rather than gold.

I don’t have allergies. I prefer natural fibres, but not exclusively. I’m happy to chat, and easy to please.

Thank you for picking me!!


CRAFTS

VARIOUS CRAFTY POSSIBILITIES

* wisty surprise - http://wists.com/jemimah (http://wists.com/jemimah) My wist will give you a pretty good picture of my tastes – I’m fine with “inspired by” rather than exact replicas, so feel free to use the wist as a starting point for your own creative idea. :)

* a Star Trek or Doctor Who thingy, whatever you like to make, my faves are Spock, tardis and daleks. (Useful rather than decorative is usually my preference, but any Spock, tardis, or dalek item that lands in my letterbox will find a home). Some ideas – Tardis journal, etui, needle book; daleks on anything; Spock stationery, journal.
* pick another one of my fave things and make something in your favourite craft medium (again, great if it’s useful, but not essential) e.g. fox, British robin, robot (more in profile info)
* things to put other things in – box, purse, organiser, etc. – always welcome
* protective folder to store artwork in – A4 or bigger would be great
* cool pendants
* cool brooches


SEWN
* a pockety bag – lots of different size pockets for projects/art supplies, any style or size, doesn’t have to have any zippers or be a complicated design
* a tardis pockety bag would be truly awesome
* a “Cake or Death?” tea cosy (Eddie Izzard quote) – I’d prefer sewn (stencilled/appliqué/embroidered/whatever), rather than knitted. Simple, plain style great.
* something embroidered (hand or machine, a panel for me to make into something, or a finished item – basically, anything you think I might like!)
* organiser things (e.g. project holder, thing for storing small supplies and bits, stationery organiser) any size. (I love the things I’ve received, I always need more though! :)) Some ideas in wist, but other styles are good too.
* sketch book cover – some ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/book_cover) - to fit A4 or A5 would be ideal. Or A3 if you want to make a larger size.
* fun pot mitts, pot holders
* full apron – fun vintage-y style, or plain, durable fabric


YARN RELATED
* hand dyed or hand spun yarn
* handknitted wool socks (women’s size 9-10, any colour) (I know, this is a big one!)
* felted scarf like the ones on my wist (green/teal/lime/aqua would be great)
* socks/slippers for wearing around the house –something simple to make, not fancy – maybe made of old felted jumpers or something? (women’s size 9-10) I am not fussy about the style, this is all about comfort. I will be working at home all year ...
* slouchy hat – chartreuse, rich or dull red (not too orange-y or dark please), dull denim blue, teal, grey, or dull greyish rose – one of these patterns or similar – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/star-crossed-slouchy-beret (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/star-crossed-slouchy-beret) http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/early-morning-beret (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/early-morning-beret)
* if you’re interested in knitting something, these are some things I want in my ravelry faves (I don’t necessarily want all the other things in my ravelry faves though :)) – ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/people/klgd/favorites?q=wants&view=)


PAPER RELATED
* handmade sketchbook/journal (unlined if possible, mixed/recycled papers are great)
* handmade stamps in a theme I like (see my profile and wists), e.g. birds, frogs, fish, trees, art related, Tardis, dalek, Star Trek
* Star Trek or Dr Who themed stationery


OTHER CRAFTS
* handmade ceramic item, esp. in celadon green (but any colours are good) – keep it small and affordable to mail. (I would love a little fox like the one on my wist)
* hair sticks/comb/pin or shawl pin – not too girly please, see wist

* or something else that I haven’t thought of, that you think I’d like!


CRAFT SUPPLIES (many of these things are VERY expensive here, more than double US prices)

* real silk for embroidery, any colours, any brand, any type – this is my big wish, it’s hideously expensive where I live (it’s probably not that cheap where you live, but I bet it’s cheaper than here! a very small envelope will be cheap to post, and will make me very happy :)). I particularly love Soie d'Alger (made by Au Ver à Soie). If you send me some Soie d'Alger, I will also send you a tiny pretty made with it by way of extra thanks. :)  
* interesting embroidery supplies (please stick with quality over quantity, I’d much rather have a tiny envelope with a few lovely skeins/little things than lots of cheap floss/beads, and it's also cheaper for postage!) The sort of stuff I like is DMC, anything silk or linen, Au Ver à Soie, Japanese stuff, bits for goldwork (purl, kid, etc.), handmade/hand dyed, quirky things. Vintage/second hand is fine.  No Aida please.
* silk or embroidered fabric, Japanese fabric, kimono fabric, good linen for embroidery, wool doctors flannel (just smallish pieces fine; no bulk fabric – I’d love it, but it may bankrupt you to mail it)
* Noro yarn, other silk/luxury yarn, artisan yarn, bamboo yarn (I have a great local source for good wool yarns, so while I love that too, it’s not worth you mailing it to me :))
* thick stampcarving material (I have the tools, but the only stuff to carve I can easily find here is lino and small erasers)
* nice paper - e.g handmade, japanese, printmaking, textured, any colour or weight - it's for printmaking, so plain or subtle rather than very patterned is best.
* small art supplies items:-
     - I REALLY want a Diamond Point Scribe (http://www.dickblick.com/products/etchingdrypoint-needles-and-scribes/) (- the second item on this page) I will send you a tiny etching artwork if you send me one of these, as an extra thank you :)
     - pencils, markers and pens (Prismacolor/Derwent/Caran D'Ache/Posca for example, or similar)
     - peel and sketch charcoal pencils
     - drypoint etching supplies (roulette, plastic for etching)
     - inkpads, little stencils, stamps, etc.
* 100% wool felt, eco felt – I’ve never seen this available here, (I have stacks of ordinary synthetic felt already though)
* bamboo DPNs (I have quite a few sizes in metal, but no bamboo)
* knitting needle gauge
* DMC StitchBow floss holders - just the gold coloured sticks (I have plenty of the plastic pockets to put them in)
* small sewing supplies – rickrack, bias binding, cotton tape/ribbon
* blanks for pendants or brooches (not shiny gold though)


EXTRAS
* yarn leftovers/oddments in any shades of blue or green, anything over about 1/4 ball (~16 metres or more) will be useful for my project. Wool or wool blends preferred please, any weight.
* I always enjoy bookmarks, vintage/interesting buttons, little pouches, etc.
* small chipboard shapes, a little paper ephemera (maps, vintage, black and white, foreign language)
* no candy (I like it TOO much)

:) :) Thank you to everyone who has sent me lovely things!!! Some things are still on my list, because I love what you sent, and I am happy to receive similar things again.

NB. New Zealand has tough biosecurity at the border. This is very unlikely to apply to this swap, but just in case ... Please don’t send natural materials (feathers, leaves, wood, seeds e.g. lavender, etc.) Everything on my list is absolutely fine to send, but PM me if you’re unsure about something. Thanks  :)

I claim jemimah for some Silk Embroidery Thread (I think I have a local source for Soie d'Alger specifically *crosses fingers*) and maybe an extra something.

3/2/0

Hi there!  My name's Kim, I'm 28, and I've been married to my fantastic hubby for 10 years.  We have a french bulldog (Gizmo! (http://gizzymoto.weebly.com/)) and a pug (Lola).

We're California transplants, living in Austin, TX and loving it! I'm a reader, a maker, and a painter. Trying to become a bit of a do-er and taking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, and Boxing classes. I do, after all, need to burn off some of the food that I love so much - Indian Buffet here I come!

Likes: My favorite colors are purple, dark teal, turquoise, acid green, brown, charcoal, and occasionally pink when it's mixed into a kind of mod pattern that isn't over the top girly. I'm also a fan of colorful polka dots, tentacled critters, goldfish, and owls :)

Dislikes: Disney, teddy bears, lacy frou-frou stuff, grandma prints, cabbage roses, puff paint. Puppies and kittens are awesome when I can play with them, not so much when they're crafted.


Crafts

~Wisty Goodness (http://www.wists.com/opalgryphon).  It's updated, and I love everything! Where I wisted patterns...I would love it if someone wanted to make the item for me, but I would also be quite happy with the pattern.  I'd make it eventually!
~Anything French Bulldog.  Pugs are popular, so it's easier to find pug things, but not frenchies.
~Fabric Napkins Printed, stamped, stenciled, or not. Thanks Babalina58!!
~Painted Umbrella like this one: Spotty Umbrella (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=359326.0)  I'm not terribly attached to the color, but I love the polka dots!  Or maybe tentacles? An Octopus?
~Mythical creature "taxidermy" - From the cute (http://www.etsy.com/listing/13191117/large-loch-ness-monster-feltidermy)  to creepy (http://www.instructables.com/id/Halloween-decor-werewolf-head/)
~Bleach stenciled t-shirts or tank tops with animals Owls, birds, goldfish, giraffes, pretty much anything that's not super cutesy. Women's fitted shirts, (Target, or Old Navy type, I know they always have a ton at Goodwill) size small.
~Decorated Recipe Binder that I can add recipes to.
~Pendants/Necklaces Living Moss Pendant (http://www.etsy.com/listing/66612789/living-moss-pendant-on-sterling-ball),  Painted Wood Pendant (http://www.etsy.com/shop/ZephyrWoods?ref=seller_info),  Stained Glass Pendant (http://www.etsy.com/shop/BelloGlass?ref=seller_info), Pebble Necklace (http://www.stylehive.com/bookmark/pebbles-in-a-pebble-orepuki-by-rebecca-ward-necklaces-oye-modern-280957), Sloth (http://wists.com/jemimah/e9a1fa4bc94e44f128e24cc7dd8271dd?offset=140)
~Embroidered Cuff Bracelet (http://www.etsy.com/listing/65265581/hand-embroidered-wool-felt-cuff-bracelet)  I like the whole thing, but it could be cool with a pattern like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/47835851/clutch-davey) too!
~Wall art My wist (http://www.wists.com/opalgryphon) and my DA wishlist (http://opalgryphon.deviantart.com/wishlist/) probably give you a good idea what I like.   and one more (http://mattbenn8.deviantart.com/art/Sea-of-Green-13352200?q=favby%3Aopalgryphon%2F1497583&qo=37).
~Re-usable lunch bag (Small grocery bag size?)  Use your imagination, but it has to fit a microwave meal and some fruit, lol.
~Animal Stuffies Sewn, not knit or crocheted.  They're lovely, but I have plenty of amis!
~Cute Needle Book
~Healthy Snacks Home made beef jerky, granola, trail mix, dried fruit, fruit leathers, etc.  Whatever you can make that would ship well!
~Fabric coil coasters I like the colors in these ones (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=349680.10) about a third of the way down the page
~Owl Pillow (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369019.70)
~Tide Pool Bracelet (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/tide-pool-bracelet)


Supplies
I will be happy to take used items and project leftovers off your hands!

~Lead Free Solder
~Soldering Iron Rheostat
~Old clock parts (hands, gears, etc.)
~Fun and funky fabrics like a lot of the stuff Spoonflower (http://www.spoonflower.com/market_browse?color_one=0&color_two=0&category_one=8&recent_cat=8&recent_choice=0) sells.   If you know of a cheaper place to get similar fabrics, let me know! Fat Quarters, and even decent sized scraps are cool :)
~Colorful fat quarters Different from above, I'm talking about the usual ones you find in any craft store.
~Old unwanted comic books that can be chopped into decoupage fodder.
~Precious Metal Clay  Even a little bit to experiment with.
~Ceramic marking pens  I think it bakes on in the oven.
~Throw pillow forms/filler
~Handi-Bobs! (http://www.nancysnotions.com/product/supplies/bobbins/handi+bobs+value+pack.do)Thank you soooo much to thedish for identifying these for me!  I thought I was crazy because no one at the fabric store had any idea what I was talking about...
~Patterns from my wist or any fun amigurumi or plushie patterns (knit, crochet or sewn)
~Cardstock enough to make a lamp (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=231484.0). 14+ pieces?

Post by: Banga on February 06, 2011 07:09:21 AM
I claim Opalgryphon for a mixed bag of supplies from her list.
2/0/0

About Me: I'm 31 (gulp) and living in NJ (double gulp). I'm currently working as a nanny, baking up a storm, and reading lots of books. Oh yeah, and I’m totally, finally, oh-my-goodness pregnant. Due in March! No more fighting off the baby fever! I love chocolate, the ocean and the beach, books, live music, thrifting, vintage, shiny things, and soft things. I love tights and knee socks, I collect recipe cards, old handkerchiefs, tea cups, ephemera, vintage scarves, cookbooks, old books, and aprons. There is a lot more info in my blog (see the link in my signature!) I love many styles, but nothing country or overly cutesy. Please check out my wist for ideas of styles and fabrics that I like.

And an update: It’s a boy!

Wishes:
 Crafted stuff:

For Baby:- Newborn cloth diapers, fitted pocket style, snap or Velcro close, with or without inserts to fit (there are lots of patterns and tutorials here on craftster!)
- A boy baby activity blanket/quilt with fun fabric like Michael Miller, Stuff you see on Spoonflower, Freshcut, etc. No need for real designer labels, it’s just an idea of styles I like. Something with bits he can play with or pull on but not pull off!
- A baby blanket like this one (smaller is ok!) but in boy or unisex shades/prints: http://www.dana-made-it.com/2010/11/lucys-baby-blanket.html
- Boy baby clothes or baby safe (ie, they can be machine washed and chewed on!) toys (like cloth cubes or puzzle balls) I don't need any more booties or hats :)
- Baby games like this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/67250071/rainbow-fish-frolic or any of the toys in that shop really!
- Screen printed/stenciled Onesies inspired by any in this shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/katyandzucchini?ref=seller_info&show_panel=true
- A large hanging wet bag for the nursery http://www.kellyscloset.com/Planet-Wise-Hanging-WetDry-Bag_p_3566.html
- A ring sling: http://www.etsy.com/listing/53926002/prestige-ring-sling-baby-carrier
- A scrabble tile square pillow with the letter J on it
- Absorbent burp cloths and bibs in fun unisex or boy prints (feel free to repurpose terry cloth, use minky fabric, whatever!) I have some on my wist for ideas

Not for Baby  
- Rubber stamps for my new etsy shop to incorporate the name/design somehow. PM me if you can do this, I'd be super excited!
- Knee socks in solid neutral or jewel tones, I’d love a warm knit or crochet pair
-Altered tees like the following, but to fit a big belly:
http://nikkishell.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341bfaf553ef0133efaa6dc7970b-pi or
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=106867.msg1016302#msg1016302 or this:http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10284568 or
http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/t_shirt_recon (I have tons more on my wist for inspiration!)
- Maternity tops (small/medium) or nursing tops
- A necklace like this! http://www.etsy.com/listing/61439187/natural-and-eco-friendly-teething-and?ref=pr_faveitems or some other teething necklace that is earth friendly and cute

Supplies:
- A4 and A6 flat cards, fold cards, envelopes in any colors for my Gocco. Any color or brand works! Smooth paper preferred over textured. It takes a print better! Here’s a size reference: http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/envelopes/A6.html
- Anybody have an old Gocco they don't use? I'll take your supplies off your hands :)
- Solid Color Felt. Larger pieces (like what you buy by the yard) are great, but I can still use the poly squares you find at most craft stores.
- Michael Moore, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, or Freshcut fabric, even your scraps are fine! Also any other pretty printed fabrics in these styles, but not necessarily designer.
- Got one of these rulers lying around? http://store.scrapbook.com/ch-th92481.html I need one!
- ink pads –pigment ink,  archival and acid free, but I’m super partial to Tsukineko and Tim Holtz (I have lots of metallics, purple, pink, brick, black already)
- Unusual rubber stamps in zetti, victorian, retro, steampunk or background patterns (I'd love a large bird cage or harlequin print)
- Rubber stamp carving tools/supplies (not eraser type)
- any issues of Crap Hound! Even photocopies of your issues work for me! http://www.boingboing.net/2005/07/24/crap-hound-seminal-c.html
- Vintage ephemera, old sewing patterns, old paper doilies and hankies, old lace, text pages from old books, old foreign language text (think crumbly old, not 80's old :))

Extras:
- I'd love items inspired by anything I've wisted, but please PM me in case it's something I'm making! I also have an Amazon wishlist here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/38KGTSPJ8DPOU
and many etsy faves here: http://www.etsy.com/people/jojobeandesigns
Or feel free to check my blog for ideas!
- Really Spicy Hot Sauce from your area for the hubs. He likes the ones that obliterate taste buds for days.

Thank you in advance for choosing me!

Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap 67 NOW OPEN FOR CLAIMS
Post by: whats_her_name on February 07, 2011 11:53:08 AM
I claim mimiw for a funky throw pillow - will pm for more details.

This is my 1st claim with 0 sent and 0 received.

My name is Karrie and I live in Canada.  I've been with hubby for 13 yrs and we have 2 little ones (who are growing up so! fast)  Daughter is 5 and son is 3.  I work at home making wedding stationery, and it's the beginning of my busy season - so I'm looking to craft OTHER things to de-stress!  I've recently fallen BACk in love with sewing and knitting.  

My tastes are usually clean and simple - classic, timeless - but I really like things that are just stinkin' cute, too!  I love all colors, but my favorites tend to be a deep chocolate brown, bright turquoise, hot pink and bright turquoise green.  Having said that, I mostly wear black and charcoal.    I'm a walking contradiction!  But I'm not too fond of neon at all...  I love cute owls, funky trees and cool mod patterns.  Really don't like floral prints unless they are mod.  I also like eye-catching geometric patterns, too - and really like dark solids with bright pops of color.

I have changed everything over from my wists to Pinterest.com (http://www.pinterest.com/whats_her_name), you'll get a good idea of things I like in there...  I've dedicated a whole board to fabrics that catch my eye...

I am allergic to cats and angora - they both make me red, and itchy with crazy red, watery eyes!  Not fun.  


So on to my list!

Crafted
 -> Insulated lunch bag with sandwich bags, etc in a theme (looking for Cat in the Hat or Construction Vehicles for my son, looking for anything uber-Girlie for my daugther, anything masculine for the hubby, and anything mod for myself)

 -> Anything from my Pinterest list (http://www.pinterest.com/whats_her_name) -- am off to add more items to my boards right now!

 -> I would love hand-died yarn done with kool-aid (the ones I've seen here are so cool!)  Bright pinks or Bright blues would be very fun!

 -> Any t-shirt like Sheldon wears in Big Bang Theory would be awesome!  Ladies' FITTED Size L.

 -> Any type of skirt for myself - PM me for measurements, including length.

 -> Any type of skirt or dress for my daughter - children's size 6.  The more girlie, the better!

 ->  I would love some owl jammy pants - brown background with bright, cute owls preferable.  PM me for size.

 ->  A kid's altered hoodie with a mighty machine (any kind of construction vehicle) on it for my son - can be stencilled or applique.  Children's Size 3.

 ->  A kid's altered hoodie with applique felt flowers & maybe some beads for some bling for my daughter.  Children's size 6.

 ->  I'd love a mod laptop sleeve - one that's really plump.  Prefer chocolate and pink -- I've got a huge laptop, so PM me for measurements!

 ->  A scoodie in black, charcoal, or olive green

 ->  A Mod Ironing board cover (standard size)


Supplies:
 ->  I would love any fabric in my Pinterest Fabric board (http://www.pinterest.com/whats_her_name/fabrics/), or anything with the same feel to it.

 ->  Any vintage dress pattern from 50's, 60's or 70's - preferably in Ladies' Size 10-12, but will take smaller sizes too!!

 ->  Heavyweight Iron-on interfacing - I am always running out

 ->  The book "Itty Bitty Hats" by Susan Anderson, I think her name is?

 ->  Oliver + S patterns - girls' size 6, boys' size 4 --> I do have a few already, so you might want to PM me to find out which ones I've got

 ->  Old shaker knit sweaters in white, women's size L, regular neckline - I have a recon project for these!!

 ->  A soft, fine wool in a charcoal or a cocoa color to make a coat (I would need 3 yards, so if there's a big sale, I would love you forever!)

 ->  Insulated batting for making potholders (can't get that here either)

 ->  Decorative zipper pulls of all kinds (my selection here really sucks)

 ->  Any Amy Butler bag pattern (except the weekender bag - I've already got that one)




Extras:
 ->  I love chocolate covered pretzels, love chocolate covered almonds.  Well, I pretty much love anything salty, covered in chocolate!!    And I love yogurt covered pretzels, too...  

***Having said that, I'm on a big fitness/healthy eating kick right now.  Trying to lose 10 lbs per month so I can be at my goal by the end of spring.  So maybe calorie-reduced treats would be a better idea!***




Thanks so much for claiming me!

I claim whats_her_name for a scoodie!

This is my 1st claim, with 0 sent and 0 recieved.

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

My favorite things to do are read, sew, knit, surf craftster & craft blogs, ride bitch on the motorcycle, riding quads and catering to my husband & friends (“beer me bitch” is a term of endearment ‘round these parts, lol)  :-*

Words that describe my fave colors are very rustic, woodsy, deep & bold but I do love lots of color and the biggest things I would say to steer away from are pastels or primary colors used soley in conjunction with each other.

Loves:  
Tattoos
Argyle and plaid
Guns
The paranormal- all of it!
lightening storms & the swamps are the only 2 things I love about Florida
coffee/tea/lattes- love to drink them and I love coffee house themed stuff
Celtic- I love celtic lore, knots, etc.  Tack on Medieval and your golden!
rustic/cabin décor
MMA (for about 11 years)
Brownies & chocolate
Nintendo
Beer, ales, lager, etc.  Again, love to drink and also love pub signage & all around atmosphere.
Chuck Taylors
Braveheart
smutty romance novels
cooking & baking


 Dislikes: hate, exercise, litterbugs, when people don’t give you the thank you wave when you let them in.

I claim lindyv321 for a yoga skirt

1/0/0

Hi my name is Chris.  I’m 34 and I live in Alaska with my husband, 2 dogs, and cat.  I love the outdoors and spend a lot of time outside hiking, fishing, skiing, kayaking, etc.  I love to bring the outdoors inside with nature themed art and colors.  I love greens, browns, fall colors in reds, orange, dark yellows.  Favorite animals are otters, foxes, and all kinds of birds.  I also like sea critters…not so much fish but seahorses, jellyfish, squid, crabs, seaweed.  I’m not allergic to anything but really hate the smell of cigarette smoke.

I have a pretty extensive wist and do keep it up to date.  I’d love anything from it or inspired by something on it.  If you do pick something off my WIST please do read the comments I'll occasionally put something up and then say "Love this style but don't like that color" or some such.


Crafty items

- Dish towels.  I turned a bunch or mine that were looking shabby into rags.  Now I need some cute new ones.  I don’t really have a color scheme in the kitchen but like greens, blues, browns or red and blacks.  Embroidered, sewn with cute material, appliqué…open to any.  I like cute designs with kitchen themes (appliances, food, herbs, etc.) or any animal or nature theme. Thanks Dawl I can never have too many.

- BIG WISH - An ironing mat (a large one around 30 x 20 would fit my table well but smaller is ok)

- A needlebook/case to hold my needle felting needles.  I’m not picky about style.  See my wists or above for themes I might like and surprise me.  PM if you need measurments for felting needles.

- Dog dish mat.  Our new rescue lab is a messy drinker so something to help contain all the water splashes would be great.  Needs to be about 12” wide to fit in the feeding area.  Length is less important maybe around 20”.  The dogs are both labs one fox red the other black.

- BIG WISH - Knitting needle case/holder/roll.  I’d love something like  this  one  (http://"http://www.etsy.com/listing/65046425/multi-knitting-needle-organizer-green) that has different size pockets, including shorter ones for dpns, and wide pockets for circles, and other supplies.

- A knitting project bag/tote.  Just a small to medium sized bag that can hold a skein or two of yard and my needles.

- Soap. I prefer the cold press to metl and pour types.  I like natural scents, most fruit smells (citrus, pear, berry), vanilla, rosemary, lavender, green tea, oatmeal…just nothing with too heavy a perfume smell.  Soap in manly scents for my husband is good too.

- Handmade beauty products.  Body butter or lotion, lip balm, sugar scrubs, etc.  I’d love just about anything except bath oils, bath bomb, or any bath thing (I rarely take baths). 

- Sea creature stuffies or amigurumi.  Would love anything with tentacles, weird or unusual fish (puffer fish, anglerfish, etc), nautilus, crab, sea slugs (nudibrach), seahorses, corals, jellyfish, etc.

-  Otter soap dishes  (http://"http://www.denalidreams.com/gift12.htm")
Love these otters…any potters out there who want to make me one of these?

Help me decorate my craft room.  The walls are an apple green.  The furniture is dark brown and white.  I’m using these colors with splashes of orange and rusts.  Some pics of the craft room organizers and idea of color schemes   here  (http://"https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366562.0")and  here  (http://"https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366567.0")

- Pillows…above colors and themes.  I have a tan futon in the craft room and need to add some pillows for comfort and to give it some color.  I want a few bolster type pillows for the arms and lots of various sized square and rectangle.  Really I’d be happy with any size shape.  I can stuff or buy a form to make it easier for you to ship.

-Crab, sea urchin, or starfish pillows.  I love   these  (http://"http://www.etsy.com/listing/57641831/recycled-chenille-sea-urchin-pillow),  this  (http://"http://www.etsy.com/listing/64281061/by-the-sea-vintage-chenille-starfish), and  these  (http://"http://www.etsy.com/listing/65782513/by-the-sea-vintage-chenille-crab-pillow)  I'd love them in any color but dark orange, brown, or tan would be fantastic.
 
-  Wall art… I would love some art to hang on my walls.  I love lots of the animal and botanical prints on vintageprintable.com site.  Would LOVE, LOVE something using these nudibrach (seaslug)  images (http://"http://vintageprintable.com/wordpress/vintage-printable-animal/animal-snails-slugs-and-slime/?noflash=1") or the 1st two images on this page  (http://"http://vintageprintable.com/wordpress/2010/10/04/vintage-printable-red-seaweed-images/?noflash=1") or really any of the Haeckel prints  (http://"http://vintageprintable.com/wordpress/vintage-printable-science-2/microscopic-rare-book-2/?noflash=1') or   jellyfish prints (http://"http://vintageprintable.com/wordpress/2010/10/21/vintage-printable-gothic-jellyfish-haeckel/").  A few of these nicely printed and framed would be fantastic.   Thanks cinnamon teal can’t wait to see what you come up with.  More of sea creature themed would be great. I like wood block/altered paper type art.  I always like embroidered wall hangings as well.  Or get creative.   There are several examples of things I like on my Wist.

-  Print/stencil t- shirts women’s size XL (or XXL if sizes run small) preferred colors: brown and tans, rust, dark orange, greens (lime, apple, sage).  Bird or animal designs, trees, leaves, etc.  Also love geek/science themes such as molecules, cells, etc. See wists for some examples.  I tend to like v- necks better but any style collar is ok.  Have some great ones from puzzler and babalina but can always use more in other colors/designs.  Long-sleeved would be great for this time of year.

-Stencil lounge pants size misses XXL or womens 1X…same themes as t-shirts above in black, brown, or grays. 

- Knit or crochet slippers, nice and thick (wool is great) to keep my toes warm on those cold Alaska days. I like the Mary Jane and ballet styles.  I wear a woman’s size 8 shoe. Again see Wist for examples of styles I like.

- Reusable cloth menstrual pads.  Mostly panty liners like  these (http://"http://www.etsy.com/shop/Randumosity?section_id=6079802") but also a couple of longer overnight ones.

- Reusable swiffer covers.  Could use regular wet and scrubbing ones as well as dusting ones

Supplies
-BIG WISH- Soapmaking supplies or a ‘learn to make soap’ kit.  I’m not really interested in the melt and pour…looking for cold press soap.  This is actually for my husband…he wants to learn to make soap and I want to encourage him to craft.  We don’t have anything so any supplies and/or ingredients at all will be much appreciated (we do have a local source for lye and some very basic oils).   
- Knitting needles – I’m just learning to knit and only have a few needles so almost any size would be great (so far I have regular size 6 and 8 and dpns in smaller sizes 000-2, 4). I prefer wood or bamboo.  Circular in any size except 9. 
- Felt – wool felt or eco felt (please no cheap acrylic felt sheets from the craft store).  I can use all colors.
- Yarn - open to any color and type.  Would love to have some more sock and fingerling weight yarn.  Prefer wool and wool blends or nice acrylic. 
-  Embroidery pattern transfer paper or pens.  I like the ones that disappear with water best but any type is fine. 
-  Bias tape makers. Any size but ½  to 1 inch would probably get the most use
-  Serger thread cones in sets of 2-4 please.  Black, Brown, Tan, White, Greens
-  Pinking shears
-  Rotary cutter blades, regular and pinking (45 and/or 28mm size)
-  Fun modern material: fat quarters or charm packs would be awesome!  Quilting cotton.  I would love to have more modern fun prints like Amy Butler, Heather Ross, Michael Miller, etc.  I have some I like on my wist and on my  amazon wish list  (http://"http://www.amazon.com/wishlist/115GOQA7KENVC/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go")
-  Home dec weight material.  Bright modern prints or nature prints with leaves, trees, birds, etc.
 - Glass eyes.  Small sizes from 3- 6mm.  Solid black or black w/clear iris or dog or cat irises in shades of brown and green.

-  Craft books/magazines:
I love the Ernst Haeckel art forms in nature type books and CDs.
An encyclopedia of embroidery stitches type book.
An encyclopedia of knitting stitches type book.
Embroidery pattern books
Any felting and/or fiber art books.


Extras
Buttons (all sizes and colors)
Ribbon (all sizes and colors)
Sewing, knitting, embroidery, or cooking magazines
Dog toys and treats any type
Cat toys...He prefers things on a string (especially feathers) and catnip stuffed toys.
Chocolate – the darker the better, with or without nuts and berries.

I claim claire313 for a fabric scarf.

2nd claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

Hello, I’m Kirsten, I’m a full time student. I live in New Zealand, married with two stepsons and two spoilt cats. I love art and I do a lot of drawing and printmaking.

I like most colours, and particularly blue/green/teal/aqua, natural tones, or black and white. I’m not so keen on pastels and pinks/purples (though dusty/dull shades can be nice). For metals, I like silver, copper or antiqued finishes, rather than gold.

I don’t have allergies. I prefer natural fibres, but not exclusively. I’m happy to chat, and easy to please.

Thank you for picking me!!


CRAFTS

VARIOUS CRAFTY POSSIBILITIES

* wisty surprise - http://wists.com/jemimah (http://wists.com/jemimah) My wist will give you a pretty good picture of my tastes – I’m fine with “inspired by” rather than exact replicas, so feel free to use the wist as a starting point for your own creative idea. :)

* a Star Trek or Doctor Who thingy, whatever you like to make, my faves are Spock, tardis and daleks. (Useful rather than decorative is usually my preference, but any Spock, tardis, or dalek item that lands in my letterbox will find a home). Some ideas – Tardis journal, etui, needle book; daleks on anything; Spock stationery, journal.
* pick another one of my fave things and make something in your favourite craft medium (again, great if it’s useful, but not essential) e.g. fox, British robin, robot (more in profile info)
* things to put other things in – box, purse, organiser, etc. – always welcome
* protective folder to store artwork in – A4 or bigger would be great
* cool pendants
* cool brooches


SEWN
* a pockety bag – lots of different size pockets for projects/art supplies, any style or size, doesn’t have to have any zippers or be a complicated design
* a tardis pockety bag would be truly awesome
* a “Cake or Death?” tea cosy (Eddie Izzard quote) – I’d prefer sewn (stencilled/appliqué/embroidered/whatever), rather than knitted. Simple, plain style great.
* something embroidered (hand or machine, a panel for me to make into something, or a finished item – basically, anything you think I might like!)
* organiser things (e.g. project holder, thing for storing small supplies and bits, stationery organiser) any size. (I love the things I’ve received, I always need more though! :)) Some ideas in wist, but other styles are good too.
* sketch book cover – some ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/book_cover) – to fit A3, A4, or A5, whichever size you feel like making.
* fun pot mitts, pot holders
* full apron – fun vintage-y style, or plain, durable fabric


YARN RELATED
* hand dyed or hand spun yarn
* handknitted wool socks (women’s size 9-10, any colour) (I know, this is a big one!)
* felted scarf like the ones on my wist (green/teal/lime/aqua would be great)
* socks/slippers for wearing around the house –something simple to make, not fancy – maybe made of old felted jumpers or something? (women’s size 9-10) I am not fussy about the style, this is all about comfort. I will be working at home all year ...
* slouchy hat – chartreuse, rich or dull red (not too orange-y or dark please), dull denim blue, teal, grey, or dull greyish rose – one of these patterns or similar – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/star-crossed-slouchy-beret (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/star-crossed-slouchy-beret) http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/early-morning-beret (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/early-morning-beret)
* if you’re interested in knitting something, these are some things I want in my ravelry faves (I don’t necessarily want all the other things in my ravelry faves though :)) – ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/people/klgd/favorites?q=wants&view=)


PAPER RELATED
* handmade sketchbook/journal (unlined if possible, mixed/recycled papers are great)
* handmade stamps in a theme I like (see my profile and wists), e.g. birds, frogs, fish, trees, art related, Tardis, dalek, Star Trek
* Star Trek or Dr Who themed stationery


OTHER CRAFTS
* handmade ceramic item, esp. in celadon green (but any colours are good) – keep it small and affordable to mail. (I would love a little fox like the one on my wist)
* hair sticks/comb/pin or shawl pin – not too girly please, see wist

* or something else that I haven’t thought of, that you think I’d like!


CRAFT SUPPLIES (many of these things are VERY expensive here, more than 2x US prices)

* real silk for embroidery, any colours, any brand, any type – this is my big wish, it’s hideously expensive where I live (it’s probably not that cheap where you live, but I bet it’s cheaper than here! a very small envelope will be cheap to post, and will make me very happy :)). I particularly love Soie d'Alger (made by Au Ver à Soie). If you send me some Soie d'Alger, I will also send you a tiny pretty made with it by way of extra thanks. :) 
* interesting embroidery supplies (please stick with quality over quantity, I’d much rather have a tiny envelope with a few lovely skeins/little things than lots of cheap floss/beads, and it's also cheaper for postage!) The sort of stuff I like is DMC, anything silk or linen, Au Ver à Soie, Japanese stuff, bits for goldwork (purl, kid, etc.), handmade/hand dyed, quirky things. Vintage/second hand is fine.  No Aida please.
* silk or embroidered fabric, Japanese fabric, kimono fabric, good linen for embroidery, wool doctors flannel (just smallish pieces fine; no bulk fabric – I’d love it, but it may bankrupt you to mail it)
* Noro yarn, other silk/luxury yarn, artisan yarn, bamboo yarn (I have a great local source for good wool yarns, so while I love that too, it’s not worth you mailing it to me :))
* thick stampcarving material (I have the tools, but the only stuff to carve I can easily find here is lino and small erasers)
* nice paper - e.g handmade, japanese, printmaking, textured, any colour or weight - it's for printmaking, so plain or subtle rather than very patterned is best.
* small art supplies items:-
     - I REALLY want a Diamond Point Scribe (http://www.dickblick.com/products/etchingdrypoint-needles-and-scribes/) (- the second item on this page)  I will send you a tiny etching artwork if you send me one of these, as an extra thank you :)
     - pencils, markers and pens (Prismacolor/Derwent/Caran D'Ache/Posca for example, or similar)
     - peel and sketch charcoal pencils
     - drypoint etching supplies (roulette, plastic for etching)
     - inkpads, little stencils, stamps, etc.
* 100% wool felt, eco felt – I’ve never seen this available here, (I have stacks of ordinary synthetic felt already though)
* bamboo DPNs (I have quite a few sizes in metal, but no bamboo)
* knitting needle gauge
* DMC StitchBow floss holders - just the gold coloured sticks (I have plenty of the plastic pockets to put them in)
* small sewing supplies – rickrack, bias binding, cotton tape/ribbon
* blanks for pendants or brooches (not shiny gold though)


EXTRAS
* yarn leftovers/oddments in any shades of blue or green, anything over about 1/4 ball (~16 metres or more) will be useful for my project. Wool or wool blends preferred please, any weight.
* I always enjoy bookmarks, vintage/interesting buttons, little pouches, etc.
* small chipboard shapes, a little paper ephemera (maps, vintage, black and white, foreign language)
* no candy (I like it TOO much)

:) :) Thank you to everyone who has sent me lovely things!!! Some things are still on my list, because I love what you sent, and I am happy to receive similar things again.

NB. New Zealand has tough biosecurity at the border. This is very unlikely to apply to this swap, but just in case ... Please don’t send natural materials (feathers, leaves, wood, seeds e.g. lavender, etc.) Everything on my list is absolutely fine to send, but PM me if you’re unsure about something. Thanks  :)

I claim lindyv321 for a purse and wisty surprise!

1st claim, 0 sent, 0 recieved

Hello from the state of Texas! My name is Robin and I am a 50 year old craftaholic! I enjoy crafting and have for over 30 years. I enjoy cross-stitch, embroidery, sewing, painting and cutting wood. I dabble in it all and only wished my friends did too. I have 2 Schnauzers Bandit and Sugar. A Sengal Parrot named Paisley, and several fish tanks full of Discus and Angelfish. I love the outdoors and spend a lot of time at the lake in the summer. I also collect vintage items such as old board games, 50’s kitchen items in aqua/pale yellow, resin napkin holders from the 60’s. Some of my likes are cupcakes, dragonflies, frogs,

Im going to claim quaggy for embroidery for her hoopla wall, fabric coil bowl and a cupcake item inspired by her wist.

BRB with list

2nd claim, 0 sent, 0 received

Hello.  I’m located in the United States.  I have no allergies.  But, hubby has sinus issues so nothing too perfumy or too smoke smelling.  Themes I love are:  pirates, pirate ships, octopus, dragons, Harry Potter, Gryffindor, Hogwarts, video games, tattoos, koi, gryffins, phoenixs’ (the fire bird), burgundy/gold, red/black polka dots, teal/black, knee high socks with stripes/argyle or other cute prints, cupcakes, argyle and other fun prints, cute Japanese prints, 1950s style full aprons and cherry blossoms.  My style is cute/sexy with some geeky/nerd as well.  Think Harry potter scarves, Nintendo shirts, and 1950s retro aprons.  I love playing video games, reading, watching movies, baking bread, crafting and being with my family.  I don’t like lace or frilly things, adult or creepy themed crafts, the colors orange/yellow/pastel/neon. 


Crafted items:
-Nook case like this, but in a theme I like.  I have a regular nook.  Bonus if its harry potter related!

Hi, I'm Roxanne!  My daughter Lana is now in first grade and is loving it.  She is our pride and joy.  Lana has grown up on Craftster love and has received so many wonderful and thoughtfully made presents her whole life.  So THANK YOU to all of you!!   I have a hubby who helps me craft when he can.  He’s the one who runs off to the craft store to buy a craft supply I missed or off to the PO to mail my packages.  I'm originally from Hawaii, so even though I live in Maryland now I'm a local girl at heart! I've dabbled in lots of different crafts.  My true love is pottery, but I haven't done that in quite a while now.  I am starting to do paper crafts, but I’ll always be true to my beading!

I claim Lo{ve} for a wisty surprise!

4/0/2

Hi there!  My name's Kim, I'm 28, and I've been married to my fantastic hubby for 10 years.  We have a french bulldog (Gizmo! (http://gizzymoto.weebly.com/)) and a pug (Lola).

We're California transplants, living in Austin, TX and loving it! I'm a reader, a maker, and a painter. Trying to become a bit of a do-er and taking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, and Boxing classes. I do, after all, need to burn off some of the food that I love so much - Indian Buffet here I come!

Likes: My favorite colors are purple, dark teal, turquoise, acid green, brown, charcoal, and occasionally pink when it's mixed into a kind of mod pattern that isn't over the top girly. I'm also a fan of colorful polka dots, tentacled critters, goldfish, and owls :)

Dislikes: Disney, teddy bears, lacy frou-frou stuff, grandma prints, cabbage roses, puff paint. Puppies and kittens are awesome when I can play with them, not so much when they're crafted.


Crafts

~Wisty Goodness (http://www.wists.com/opalgryphon).  It's updated, and I love everything! Where I wisted patterns...I would love it if someone wanted to make the item for me, but I would also be quite happy with the pattern.  I'd make it eventually!
~Anything French Bulldog.  Pugs are popular, so it's easier to find pug things, but not frenchies.
~Fabric Napkins Printed, stamped, stenciled, or not. Thanks Babalina58!!
~Painted Umbrella like this one: Spotty Umbrella (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=359326.0)  I'm not terribly attached to the color, but I love the polka dots!  Or maybe tentacles? An Octopus?
~Mythical creature "taxidermy" - From the cute (http://www.etsy.com/listing/13191117/large-loch-ness-monster-feltidermy)  to creepy (http://www.instructables.com/id/Halloween-decor-werewolf-head/)
~Bleach stenciled t-shirts or tank tops with animals Owls, birds, goldfish, giraffes, pretty much anything that's not super cutesy. Women's fitted shirts, (Target, or Old Navy type, I know they always have a ton at Goodwill) size small.
~NEW~Mixed Martial Arts and Crafts T-Shirt I LOVE this t-shirt, but I'm sure it would be hard to make.  Was trying to come up with an easier design, same wording.  Maybe an origami throwing star with MMA&C?

~Embroidered Cuff Bracelet (http://www.etsy.com/listing/65265581/hand-embroidered-wool-felt-cuff-bracelet)  I like the whole thing, but it could be cool with a pattern like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/47835851/clutch-davey) too!
~Wall art My wist (http://www.wists.com/opalgryphon) and my DA wishlist (http://opalgryphon.deviantart.com/wishlist/) probably give you a good idea what I like.   and one more (http://mattbenn8.deviantart.com/art/Sea-of-Green-13352200?q=favby%3Aopalgryphon%2F1497583&qo=37).
~Re-usable lunch bag (Small grocery bag size?)  Use your imagination, but it has to fit a microwave meal and some fruit, lol.

~NEW~Shawl Pin I love all of the Pins (http://www.etsy.com/shop/nicholasandfelice?section_id=5011288) by Nicholas and Felice.  I have very short hair, so their hair forks are a no-go, lol.
~NEW~Leather Wrap Bracelet Semi Precious beads (Something like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370504.msg4356822;topicseen#msg4356822)) would be awesome, but I'm sure anything you come up with would be great!

Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap 67 NOW OPEN FOR CLAIMS
Post by: jemimah on February 10, 2011 12:13:14 PM
I claim Opalgryphon for a surprise :)

3/0/0    (- I'd better get crafting!!)

Hello, I’m Kirsten, I’m a full time student. I live in New Zealand, married with two stepsons and two spoilt cats. I love art and I do a lot of drawing and printmaking.

I like most colours, and particularly blue/green/teal/aqua, natural tones, or black and white. I’m not so keen on pastels and pinks/purples (though dusty/dull shades can be nice). For metals, I like silver, copper or antiqued finishes, rather than gold.

I don’t have allergies. I prefer natural fibres, but not exclusively. I’m happy to chat, and easy to please.

Thank you for picking me!!


CRAFTS

VARIOUS CRAFTY POSSIBILITIES

* wisty surprise - http://wists.com/jemimah (http://wists.com/jemimah) My wist will give you a pretty good picture of my tastes – I’m fine with “inspired by” rather than exact replicas, so feel free to use the wist as a starting point for your own creative idea. :)

* a Star Trek or Doctor Who thingy, whatever you like to make, my faves are Spock, tardis and daleks. (Useful rather than decorative is usually my preference, but any Spock, tardis, or dalek item that lands in my letterbox will find a home). Some ideas – Tardis journal, etui, needle book; daleks on anything; Spock stationery, journal.
* pick another one of my fave things and make something in your favourite craft medium (again, great if it’s useful, but not essential) e.g. fox, British robin, robot (more in profile info)
* things to put other things in – box, purse, organiser, etc. – always welcome
* protective folder to store artwork in – A4 or bigger would be great
* cool pendants
* cool brooches


SEWN
* a pockety bag – lots of different size pockets for projects/art supplies, any style or size, doesn’t have to have any zippers or be a complicated design
* a tardis pockety bag would be truly awesome
* a “Cake or Death?” tea cosy (Eddie Izzard quote) – I’d prefer sewn (stencilled/appliqué/embroidered/whatever), rather than knitted. Simple, plain style great.
* something embroidered (hand or machine, a panel for me to make into something, or a finished item – basically, anything you think I might like!)
* organiser things (e.g. project holder, thing for storing small supplies and bits, stationery organiser) any size. (I love the things I’ve received, I always need more though! :)) Some ideas in wist, but other styles are good too.
* sketch book cover – some ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/book_cover) – to fit A3, A4, or A5, whichever size you feel like making.
* fun pot mitts, pot holders
* full apron – fun vintage-y style, or plain, durable fabric


YARN RELATED
* hand dyed or hand spun yarn
* handknitted wool socks (women’s size 9-10, any colour) (I know, this is a big one!)
* felted scarf like the ones on my wist (green/teal/lime/aqua would be great)
* socks/slippers for wearing around the house –something simple to make, not fancy – maybe made of old felted jumpers or something? (women’s size 9-10) I am not fussy about the style, this is all about comfort. I will be working at home all year ...
* slouchy hat – chartreuse, rich or dull red (not too orange-y or dark please), dull denim blue, teal, grey, or dull greyish rose – one of these patterns or similar – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/star-crossed-slouchy-beret (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/star-crossed-slouchy-beret) http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/early-morning-beret (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/early-morning-beret)
* if you’re interested in knitting something, these are some things I want in my ravelry faves (I don’t necessarily want all the other things in my ravelry faves though :)) – ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/people/klgd/favorites?q=wants&view=)


PAPER RELATED
* handmade sketchbook/journal (unlined if possible, mixed/recycled papers are great)
* handmade stamps in a theme I like (see my profile and wists), e.g. birds, frogs, fish, trees, art related, Tardis, dalek, Star Trek
* Star Trek or Dr Who themed stationery


OTHER CRAFTS
* handmade ceramic item, esp. in celadon green (but any colours are good) – keep it small and affordable to mail. (I would love a little fox like the one on my wist)
* hair sticks/comb/pin or shawl pin – not too girly please, see wist

* or something else that I haven’t thought of, that you think I’d like!


CRAFT SUPPLIES (many of these things are VERY expensive here, more than 2x US prices)

* real silk for embroidery, any colours, any brand, any type – this is my big wish, it’s hideously expensive where I live (it’s probably not that cheap where you live, but I bet it’s cheaper than here! a very small envelope will be cheap to post, and will make me very happy :)). I particularly love Soie d'Alger (made by Au Ver à Soie). If you send me some Soie d'Alger, I will also send you a tiny pretty made with it by way of extra thanks. :) 
* interesting embroidery supplies (please stick with quality over quantity, I’d much rather have a tiny envelope with a few lovely skeins/little things than lots of cheap floss/beads, and it's also cheaper for postage!) The sort of stuff I like is DMC, anything silk or linen, Au Ver à Soie, Japanese stuff, bits for goldwork (purl, kid, etc.), handmade/hand dyed, quirky things. Vintage/second hand is fine.  No Aida please.
* silk or embroidered fabric, Japanese fabric, kimono fabric, good linen for embroidery, wool doctors flannel (just smallish pieces fine; no bulk fabric – I’d love it, but it may bankrupt you to mail it)
* Noro yarn, other silk/luxury yarn, artisan yarn, bamboo yarn (I have a great local source for good wool yarns, so while I love that too, it’s not worth you mailing it to me :))
* thick stampcarving material (I have the tools, but the only stuff to carve I can easily find here is lino and small erasers)
* nice paper - e.g handmade, japanese, printmaking, textured, any colour or weight - it's for printmaking, so plain or subtle rather than very patterned is best.
* small art supplies items:-
     - I REALLY want a Diamond Point Scribe (http://www.dickblick.com/products/etchingdrypoint-needles-and-scribes/) (- the second item on this page)  I will send you a tiny etching artwork if you send me one of these, as an extra thank you :)
     - pencils, markers and pens (Prismacolor/Derwent/Caran D'Ache/Posca for example, or similar)
     - peel and sketch charcoal pencils
     - drypoint etching supplies (roulette, plastic for etching)
     - inkpads, little stencils, stamps, etc.
* 100% wool felt, eco felt – I’ve never seen this available here, (I have stacks of ordinary synthetic felt already though)
* bamboo DPNs (I have quite a few sizes in metal, but no bamboo)
* knitting needle gauge
* DMC StitchBow floss holders - just the gold coloured sticks (I have plenty of the plastic pockets to put them in)
* small sewing supplies – rickrack, bias binding, cotton tape/ribbon
* blanks for pendants or brooches (not shiny gold though)


EXTRAS
* yarn leftovers/oddments in any shades of blue or green, anything over about 1/4 ball (~16 metres or more) will be useful for my project. Wool or wool blends preferred please, any weight.
* I always enjoy bookmarks, vintage/interesting buttons, little pouches, etc.
* small chipboard shapes, a little paper ephemera (maps, vintage, black and white, foreign language)
* no candy (I like it TOO much)

:) :) Thank you to everyone who has sent me lovely things!!! Some things are still on my list, because I love what you sent, and I am happy to receive similar things again.

NB. New Zealand has tough biosecurity at the border. This is very unlikely to apply to this swap, but just in case ... Please don’t send natural materials (feathers, leaves, wood, seeds e.g. lavender, etc.) Everything on my list is absolutely fine to send, but PM me if you’re unsure about something. Thanks  :)

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
NEW -- ;D ;D Nook cover! I like this style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/699a4d5dbeb717c0ae9d69e6aacd829c?offset=0) a lot. (Also, like the one by mimiw! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5344228500/) I got a regular Nook (NOT nook color) for Christmas and I'd like some cases! I put some fabric examples and such here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/nook_fabric) and some here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/pillow) for fabric inspiration ideas.

 -- ;D  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.

   -- 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 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.

 -- Any sewn wist item You can see all the sewing items I've wisted here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/sewing).


Knitting & Crochet
NEW -- Cable Knit Fingerless Gloves (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/e39633c25869975e347c00f8d7a2054b?offset=40). I love the color, the cable (I love cable!!) and the fact they're a soft acrylic for easy care. Yes please!! (Please note, I have tiny wrists - like 5.5" - so aim for small width please!)

 -- 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 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.

 -- Any knitted wist items. You can see all the wisted knit items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/knitting).


Other
NEW  ;D ;D -- Chibi Marty or Doc BttF Plush. Probably bigger than a medium, but I want to list it anyway. Craftster Noxika makes these awesome plush (like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370204.msg4353051#msg4353051) and this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=362199.msg4251004#msg4251004)) and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE one made of Marty McFly or Doc Brown from Back to the Future. Can't you just imagine how awesome a Marty with his orange "life vest" jacket or Doc with his wild hair in this style plush would be??

--  ;D Batik/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 Decorated T-Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. Fitted (not the "unisex" ones that are boxy) in V-neck, scoop or whatever (just nothing that's so low cut it requires another shirt underneath) in size small or US 4 equivalent. (I like the ones from Target a lot but am open to others too!) 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.

 --  Stained Glass Item - 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.)

 --  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.

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns) or my amazon wishlist (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/wishlist/397IKAEGOJ51E/), my etsy favorites (http://www.etsy.com/people/PhoenixFireDesigns/favorites), the colors I like, my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like! I KEEP MY WISTS UPDATED SO IF IT'S ON THE LIST, I WANT IT! :D


Craft Supplies
--  ;D ;D Jewelry Presentation Displays I have one in black but I desperately need a necklace one in WHITE for photographing my work. I could also use a necklace/earring combo and a bracelet hand. Used ones in good shape are fine too! Any kind of leather/leatherette/vinyl is awesome. These are examples of 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 use more faceted, briolette and other cut stones. Here are some I really am coveting.
(Listings shown are just for example of the stone. Can easily be smaller quantities for more reasonable cost!)
 - Any gems on my Etsy favorites - Bunches listed here (http://www.etsy.com/people/PhoenixFireDesigns/favorites)
 -Chrome Diopside Beads - Especially teardrops or briolettes or rondelles would be nice. Example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380270868769)
 - Mexican Fire Opal Rondelle Beads - example (http://cgi.ebay.com/Multi-Color-Mexican-Fire-Opal-4mm-Rondelle-Beads-15-/360292173664) or example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/41280384/7-inches-mexican-fire-opal-faceted)
 - Hesonite Garnet - example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/40070013/nice-quality-gorgeous-colour-hesonite)
 - Sapphire Rondelle Beads - In a red/orange/yellow combo. example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/49315448/aa-songia-sapphire-briolette-drops-20) or example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50895895/take-10-percent-off-entire-store)

 -- 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 and any 16, 22 or 24 gauge wire is in any color is always useful. (Especially if it's silver-plated!) The Artistic Wire (http://www.artbeads.com/awr24svr10.html) brand is my favorite.

NEW -- Ninja Men Cookie Cutters (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/931973dabb452b905f137bfb7aec059e?offset=20). OMG, how freakin' awesome are these???

NEW --  ;D Puffy Heart Pendant Instructions/Kit I've wanted to learn how to make this forever! Bonus would be if I had some of the materials needed as well like the stringing material. There's a full kit HERE (http://www.etsy.com/listing/54237413/crystal-puffy-heart-pendant-kit) and another HERE (http://www.etsy.com/listing/46025864/crystal-puffy-heart-pendant-kit) which is totally helpful and even more awesome!!

NEW -- Button Maker I think it'd be fun to make my own buttons. Some sort of starter kit would be great. I've never made any before. Can totally be used/pre-owned!



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!
 -- Beading/Wire-Wrapping/Jewelry magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! ;D

Post by: VegasZombie on February 11, 2011 04:04:54 PM
I claim quaggy for a couple of needle books and a few supplies.

1st claim this round / 0 in transit / 0 received

Howdy! The actual name is Karri, but you can call me Zombs (most of my internet cohorts have been doing so since about 1995).  I currently reside in Las Vegas, NV, but am originally from the Dallas, TX area. My SO and I moved out here in 1997 so he could deal poker (legally). We have a 2 year old black & tan dachshund named Rascal and an evil rat named Elwood.

I am allergic to Tide detergent, Poison perfume and apparently rabbits. Rascal is allergic to chicken, wheat & corn.

There are a lot of things in my wist (http://www.wists.com/vegaszombie) for ideas & wisty surprises always rock! My profile also has too much information.

Crafted item ideas
•  B-movie monster or psychobilly theme purse. Something small enough to take to the rock show, but big enough to hold a few things.

•  Bag - I am a bag ummmm… collector. I think I have more bags (like tote bags) than I do clothes. See my themes section for, well, themes. Ha!

•  Hair flowers and various other hair doodads (see themes for various ideas) – there are quite a few on my wist

•  Small altered art shrine or curio cabinet

•  Handmade bath items – just nothing uber flowery, I like more dark scents.

•  Oddball stuffies

•  Table top ironing pad – example: http://www.wists.com/vegaszombie/1479ac97c212c5878b7e2995b7c670f9

•  Weird sock monkeys – example: http://www.wists.com/vegaszombie/a2e284e9631d0b60df56f210d66c39b3?offset=20

•  Bookcover wallet – the cheesier the better; like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=167691.0

•  Amigurumi – The only ones I currently own are Hans Solo and Leia (linked in my profile)

•  Reusable Swiffer pads

•  Oddball small mounted taxidermy – zombified creatures and cryptozoology a plus

•  Dish towels – I pretend the kitchen is themed, but really it isn’t. My current dishtowels are maroon-ish because that somewhat matches the fake cherry cabinets.

•  Placemats – see “themes” section for inspiration

•  Demotivator themed ATCs for my desk at work (http://www.despair.com/)

•  Small wall art pieces, any medium – see “themes” section for inspiration.

Themes
•  Dachshunds – particularly smooth red and smooth black & tan
•  Zombies or zombified things
•  Psychobilly / Rockabilly
•  Coffee – I long ago had my blood replaced with it
•  B-Movie monsters
•  Bats
•  New Orleans – I am beyond obsessed with the place
•  Voodoo
•  Bands – Sin City Sinners, Frank Zappa, Horrorpops, Johnny Cash, Reverend Horton Heat, Rob Zombie
•  Cryptozoology – I love Nessy like whoa!
•  Dia de los Muertos
•  Skulls
•  Kilted anything…. Mmmmm…. Kilts

Craft Supplies
•  Bits and pieces – odd charms, watch pieces, broken jewelry, etc.
•  DMC thread
•  Cross stitch fabric – various colors and counts
•  Shrinky Dink material – I’d really like to give this a try
•  DIY Resin Jewelry Kit
•  Small embroidery hoops
•  Interesting beads and findings
•  Fabric, trim, notions
•  Frames – any type, any size as long as they are structurally sound
•  Band T-shirts that you may not need anymore. I turn them into bags and whatnot. Holes in various areas are fine as long as the graphic area is decent.
•  Shrinky Dink material – I’d really like to try this out.

Extras:
•  Items local to your area – preserves, beverages, pet rocks… anything
•  Postcards
•  Coffee – I have a Keurig machine so any odd K-cups would rock, but I can also do regular ground.
•  Tea – I can do loose leaf, bags and K-cups. Non-herbal preferred.

I claim quaggy for a steampunk necklace and a few handmade bookmarks!

4/0/2

Hi, I'm Roxanne!  My daughter Lana is now in first grade and is loving it.  She is our pride and joy.  Lana has grown up on Craftster love and has received so many wonderful and thoughtfully made presents her whole life.  So THANK YOU to all of you!!   I have a hubby who helps me craft when he can.  He’s the one who runs off to the craft store to buy a craft supply I missed or off to the PO to mail my packages.  I'm originally from Hawaii, so even though I live in Maryland now I'm a local girl at heart! I've dabbled in lots of different crafts.  My true love is pottery, but I haven't done that in quite a while now.  I am starting to do paper crafts, but I’ll always be true to my beading!

I claim mimiw for Knitted flowers.

4th claim, 3 sent, 1 outstanding (in the mail), 1 received (by me).

Hello.  I am puzzler and I live in Connecticut, US.  I like simple and useful things.  I love the idea that something was re-purposed or recycled, so if you can be “green” while crafting something for me- that would be wonderful. Please don't send me anything pink.  I like green/gray/blue colors or black and white combinations.  Any peaceful shades or patterns are OK.  Thank you! :)

Things I would love to get:

CRAFTS:

NEW WISH: Something featuring interesting type. I am into typography and would love a  journal or pillow cover (or something else)  with some nice letters or words on it. 

Writing journal/altered book.  (mixed papers would be great) Perhaps something with writing prompts or ideas?

Fabric bucket (bucket/bag made of fabric for either my yarn or fabric storage, etc)

zippered bag, something around 5x9 inches made from cotton fabric and with lining.

wallet  -see different examples on my wist

water bottle bag/holder

“How to” Kit (quilting, embroidery/needlework, felting,  whatever your specialty happens to be). 

I would LOVE this kind of slippers: http://wists.com/puzzler/e3fd698d80ecb769570e9eba3c942033?offset=0 or other slippers from my wist.  Size 9-10

Sandwich wrap (something like this, for example: http://www.wists.com/puzzler/2fb140159c5154d0ef456d0d15cc68f9?offset=0  )

Snack baggies  (one or two) (like this, for instance: http://www.wists.com/puzzler/2fb140159c5154d0ef456d0d15cc68f9?offset=0  )

Anything from my wist: http://wists.com/puzzler

CRAFT SUPPLIES:

Circular needles – ANY size!

Cable needles

tapestry needle

stitch markers

quilting tools or supplies

 black inkpads

any natural yarn (wool, cotton)

EXTRAS:

Books or magazines with knitting, crochet or sewing projects. I am more interested in patterns, than in the “how to” do these crafts. 

Sudoku books.

 Please feel free to ask me any questions.  Thanks for reading and thanks if you want to make me something!   :)

I claim puzzler for some stitch markers and a sandwich wrap.

2/0/0

Hi my name is Chris.  I’m 34 and I live in Alaska with my husband, 2 dogs, and cat.  I love the outdoors and spend a lot of time outside hiking, fishing, skiing, kayaking, etc.  I love to bring the outdoors inside with nature themed art and colors.  I love greens, browns, fall colors in reds, orange, dark yellows.  Favorite animals are otters, foxes, and all kinds of birds.  I also like sea critters…not so much fish but seahorses, jellyfish, squid, crabs, seaweed.  I’m not allergic to anything but really hate the smell of cigarette smoke.

I have a pretty extensive wist and do keep it up to date.  I’d love anything from it or inspired by something on it.  If you do pick something off my WIST please do read the comments I'll occasionally put something up and then say "Love this style but don't like that color" or some such.


Crafty items

- Dish towels.  I turned a bunch or mine that were looking shabby into rags.  Now I need some cute new ones.  I don’t really have a color scheme in the kitchen but like greens, blues, browns or red and blacks.  Embroidered, sewn with cute material, appliqué…open to any.  I like cute designs with kitchen themes (appliances, food, herbs, etc.) or any animal or nature theme. Thanks Dawl I can never have too many.

- BIG WISH - An ironing mat (a large one around 30 x 20 would fit my table well but smaller is ok)

- A needlebook/case to hold my needle felting needles.  I’m not picky about style.  See my wists or above for themes I might like and surprise me.  PM if you need measurments for felting needles.

- Dog dish mat.  Our new rescue lab is a messy drinker so something to help contain all the water splashes would be great.  Needs to be about 12” wide to fit in the feeding area.  Length is less important maybe around 20”.  The dogs are both labs one fox red the other black.

- BIG WISH - Knitting needle case/holder/roll.  I’d love something like  this  one  (http://"http://www.etsy.com/listing/65046425/multi-knitting-needle-organizer-green) that has different size pockets, including shorter ones for dpns, and wide pockets for circles, and other supplies. Thanks Claire313

- A knitting project bag/tote.  Just a small to medium sized bag that can hold a skein or two of yard and my needles.

- Soap. I prefer the cold press to melt and pour types.  I like natural scents, most fruit smells (citrus, pear, berry), vanilla, rosemary, lavender, green tea, oatmeal…just nothing with too heavy a perfume smell.  Soap in manly scents for my husband is good too.

- Handmade beauty products.  Body butter or lotion, lip balm, sugar scrubs, etc.  I’d love just about anything except bath oils, bath bomb, or any bath thing (I rarely take baths). Thanks skaborsk for the sugar scrub.

- Sea creature stuffies or amigurumi.  Would love anything with tentacles, weird or unusual fish (puffer fish, anglerfish, etc), nautilus, crab, sea slugs (nudibrach), seahorses, corals, jellyfish, etc.

-  Otter soap dishes  (http://"http://www.denalidreams.com/gift12.htm")
Love these otters…any potters out there who want to make me one of these?

Help me decorate my craft room.  The walls are an apple green.  The furniture is dark brown and white.  I’m using these colors with splashes of orange and rusts.  Some pics of the craft room organizers and idea of color schemes   here  (http://"https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366562.0")and  here  (http://"https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366567.0")

- Pillows…above colors and themes.  I have a tan futon in the craft room and need to add some pillows for comfort and to give it some color.  I want a few bolster type pillows for the arms and lots of various sized square and rectangle.  Really I’d be happy with any size shape.  I can stuff or buy a form to make it easier for you to ship.

-Crab, sea urchin, or starfish pillows.  I love   these  (http://"http://www.etsy.com/listing/57641831/recycled-chenille-sea-urchin-pillow),  this  (http://"http://www.etsy.com/listing/64281061/by-the-sea-vintage-chenille-starfish), and  these  (http://"http://www.etsy.com/listing/65782513/by-the-sea-vintage-chenille-crab-pillow)  I'd love them in any color but dark orange, brown, or tan would be fantastic.
 
-  Wall art… I would love some art to hang on my walls.  I love lots of the animal and botanical prints on vintageprintable.com site.  Would LOVE, LOVE something using these nudibrach (seaslug)  images (http://"http://vintageprintable.com/wordpress/vintage-printable-animal/animal-snails-slugs-and-slime/?noflash=1") or the 1st two images on this page  (http://"http://vintageprintable.com/wordpress/2010/10/04/vintage-printable-red-seaweed-images/?noflash=1") or really any of the Haeckel prints  (http://"http://vintageprintable.com/wordpress/vintage-printable-science-2/microscopic-rare-book-2/?noflash=1') or   jellyfish prints (http://"http://vintageprintable.com/wordpress/2010/10/21/vintage-printable-gothic-jellyfish-haeckel/").  A few of these nicely printed and framed would be fantastic.   Thanks cinnamon teal Love the ones you sent.  More of sea creature themed would be great. I like wood block/altered paper type art.  I always like embroidered wall hangings as well.  Or get creative.   There are several examples of things I like on my Wist.

-  Print/stencil t- shirts women’s size XL (or XXL if sizes run small) preferred colors: brown and tans, rust, dark orange, greens (lime, apple, sage).  Bird or animal designs, trees, leaves, etc.  Also love geek/science themes such as molecules, cells, etc. See wists for some examples.  I tend to like v- necks better but any style collar is ok.  Have some great ones from puzzler and babalina but can always use more in other colors/designs.  Long-sleeved would be great for this time of year.

-Stencil lounge pants size misses XXL or womens 1X…same themes as t-shirts above in black, brown, or grays. 

- Knit or crochet slippers, nice and thick (wool is great) to keep my toes warm on those cold Alaska days. I like the Mary Jane and ballet styles.  I wear a woman’s size 8 shoe. Again see Wist for examples of styles I like. Thanks redstar13

- Reusable cloth menstrual pads.  Mostly panty liners like  these (http://"http://www.etsy.com/shop/Randumosity?section_id=6079802") but also a couple of longer overnight ones.

- Reusable swiffer covers.  Could use regular wet and scrubbing ones as well as dusting ones Thanks redstar13

Supplies
- Green yarn, especially fun yarn, eyelash yarn, and boulce type.  I have a project in mind that uses yarn to mimic moss.  I could use lots of shades of green and any amount...even small leftovers.
-BIG WISH- Soapmaking supplies or a ‘learn to make soap’ kit.  I’m not really interested in the melt and pour…looking for cold press soap.  This is actually for my husband…he wants to learn to make soap and I want to encourage him to craft.  We don’t have anything so any supplies and/or ingredients at all will be much appreciated (we do have a local source for lye and some very basic oils).   
- BIG WISH- Knitting needles – I’m just learning to knit and only have a few needles so almost any size would be great (so far I have regular size 6 and 8 and dpns in smaller sizes 000-2, 4). I prefer wood or bamboo.  Circular in any size except 9 would be great. 
- Felt – wool felt or eco felt (please no cheap acrylic felt sheets from the craft store).  I can use all colors.
- Yarn - open to any color and type.  Would love to have some more sock and fingerling weight yarn.  Prefer wool and wool blends or nice acrylic. 
-  Embroidery pattern transfer paper or pens.  I like the ones that disappear with water best but any type is fine. 
-  Bias tape makers. Any size but ½  to 1 inch would probably get the most use
-  Serger thread cones in sets of 2-4 please.  Black, Brown, Tan, White, Greens
-  Pinking shears
-  Rotary cutter blades, regular and pinking (45 and/or 28mm size)
-  Fun modern material: fat quarters or charm packs would be awesome!  Quilting cotton.  I would love to have more modern fun prints like Amy Butler, Heather Ross, Michael Miller, etc.  I have some I like on my wist and on my  amazon wish list  (http://"http://www.amazon.com/wishlist/115GOQA7KENVC/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go")
-  Home dec weight material.  Bright modern prints or nature prints with leaves, trees, birds, etc.
 - Glass eyes.  Small sizes from 3- 6mm.  Solid black or black w/clear iris or dog or cat irises in shades of brown and green.

-  Craft books/magazines:
I love the Ernst Haeckel art forms in nature type books and CDs.
An encyclopedia of embroidery stitches type book.
An encyclopedia of knitting stitches type book.
Embroidery pattern books
Any felting and/or fiber art books.


Extras
Buttons (all sizes and colors)
Ribbon (all sizes and colors)
Sewing, knitting, embroidery, or cooking magazines
Dog toys and treats any type
Cat toys...He prefers things on a string (especially feathers) and catnip stuffed toys.
Chocolate – the darker the better, with or without nuts and berries.

Post by: frosty772 on February 16, 2011 09:17:30 AM
I will claim ChrisSews for a dog dish mat.

This is my first claim
Nothing sent
Nothing received

List in a moment!!

Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 38 and im a stay at home mom to three boys in Northern California. I moved here from OH and love it!! We just purchased our first home and are thrilled!!  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!!  Size 7 feet
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  Grin)

My MIL is a bingo fanatic!!!  A bingo bag or a nice seat cushion would be great for a gift.

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 Raggedy Ann doll (An example is in my wists)

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

Other Crafts~~~
Bars of handmade soap (the kind that is made from lye).  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. Plain Pre-made soap bars that are ready to have scents, colors, herbs ect melted and added in are appreciated too as I have young children and am concerned with having lye in the house. Room sprays, bubble baths (im looking for some really good foamy bubbles!!).

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

Im looking for some scented oils.  I would rather these be handmade or from specialty shops and not from stores like joanns or hobbylobby ect.

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)

Post by: VegasZombie on February 16, 2011 01:42:41 PM
I claim frosty772 for "Handcrafted Jewelry with Victorian influence."

2nd claim / 0 in transit / 0 received

Howdy! The actual name is Karri, but you can call me Zombs (most of my internet cohorts have been doing so since about 1995).  I currently reside in Las Vegas, NV, but am originally from the Dallas, TX area. My SO and I moved out here in 1997 so he could deal poker (legally). We have a 2 year old black & tan dachshund named Rascal and an evil rat named Elwood.

I am allergic to Tide detergent, Poison perfume and apparently rabbits.

There are a lot of things in my wist (http://www.wists.com/vegaszombie) for ideas & wisty surprises always rock! My profile also has too much information.

Crafted item ideas
•  B-movie monster or psychobilly theme purse. Something small enough to take to the rock show, but big enough to hold a few things.

•  Bag - I am a bag ummmm… collector. I think I have more bags (like tote bags) than I do clothes. See my themes section for, well, themes. Ha!

•  Hair flowers and various other hair doodads (see themes for various ideas) – there are quite a few on my wist

•  Small altered art shrine or curio cabinet

•  Handmade bath items – just nothing uber flowery, I like more dark scents.

•  Oddball stuffies

•  Table top ironing pad – example: http://www.wists.com/vegaszombie/1479ac97c212c5878b7e2995b7c670f9

•  Weird sock monkeys – example: http://www.wists.com/vegaszombie/a2e284e9631d0b60df56f210d66c39b3?offset=20

•  Bookcover wallet – the cheesier the better; like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=167691.0

•  Amigurumi – The only ones I currently own are Hans Solo and Leia (linked in my profile)

•  Reusable Swiffer pads

•  Oddball small mounted taxidermy – zombified creatures and cryptozoology a plus

•  Dish towels – I pretend the kitchen is themed, but really it isn’t. My current dishtowels are maroon-ish because that somewhat matches the fake cherry cabinets.

•  Placemats – see “themes” section for inspiration

•  Demotivator themed ATCs for my desk at work (http://www.despair.com/)

•  Small wall art pieces, any medium – see “themes” section for inspiration.  Thank you Eveamlizya! More pieces are always welcome.

Themes
•  Dachshunds – particularly smooth red and smooth black & tan
•  Zombies or zombified things
•  Psychobilly / Rockabilly
•  Coffee – I long ago had my blood replaced with it
•  B-Movie monsters
•  Bats
•  New Orleans – I am beyond obsessed with the place
•  Voodoo
•  Bands – Sin City Sinners, Frank Zappa, Horrorpops, Johnny Cash, Reverend Horton Heat, Rob Zombie
•  Cryptozoology – I love Nessy like whoa!
•  Dia de los Muertos
•  Skulls
•  Kilted anything…. Mmmmm…. Kilts

Craft Supplies
•  Bits and pieces – odd charms, watch pieces, broken jewelry, etc.
•  Embroidery thread – I have a lot, but you can never have too much. Would also like some of the schmancy stuff.
•  Cross stitch fabric – various colors and counts
•  Shrinky Dink material – All varieties
•  DIY Resin Jewelry Kit
•  Embroidery hoops
•  Interesting beads and findings
•  Fabric, trim, notions
•  Frames – any type, any size as long as they are structurally sound
•  Band T-shirts that you may not need anymore. I turn them into bags and whatnot. Holes in various areas are fine as long as the graphic area is decent.
•  Shrinky Dink material – I’d really like to try this out.

Extras:
•  Items local to your area – preserves, beverages, pet rocks… anything
•  Postcards
•  Coffee – I have a Keurig machine so any odd K-cups would rock, but I can also do regular ground.
•  Tea – I can do loose leaf, bags and K-cups. Non-herbal preferred.

Post by: Kitten Wrangler on February 16, 2011 02:24:50 PM
I claim Dawl for a hoopla & maybe something dolphin-themed.


1st claim, 0 sent, 0 received



I'm KW, and I live in Melbourne! Glorious Melbourne in Australia! GLORIOUS MELBOURNE! City of 4 seasons in one day! 90° humidity yesterday, stinking hot today, thunderstorms and antarctic winds tomorrow!

I'm 31, or something like that, and I do... stuff. I do data entry, I write text books, I provide voice talent, I make spreadsheets, I use the force of Web 2.0 for good, I play rollerderby, I speak 3 languages, I sew, I knit, I embroider, I crochet, I get drunk fairly quickly,


Crafts

Clothes!
- booty shorts for playing derby in. Something like this in lycra/spandex/something stretchy
http://www.derbyskinz.com/gallery/index.php?gallery=./In%20Action

- skirts! Short skirts pref, A-line stopping anywhere between mid thigh to just above the knee. This is one I made for myself last year.. damn thing's starting to fall off my hips already.
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=294190.msg3345848#msg3345848
http://wists.com/kittenwrangler/128f7b62cceead4b6cee4a1df19bde57?offset=0
http://wists.com/kittenwrangler/8e1726062368f20e027c3e93b57125b9?offset=100

- tutus. Not necessarily as poofy as this one, but I love it when my skirt is flippy and floofy:
http://wists.com/kittenwrangler/19d5528c2e3fd607e5cbcf16eabc9990?offset=40

- t-shirts/singlets with wide shoulder straps and my derby name & number on the back. I don't have enough scrimmage tops.

 - Derby Kitbag. This needs to be strong, because it will carry a lot of weight. Straps so I can carry it on my shoulder/across my back. Ventilation a big plus, believe me. It'll need to hold a pair of skates, a helmet, big kneepads, elbow pads, wristguards, mouthguard, and I'd love dedicated spots for skate tools, skate parts, my contact lenses, extra scrimmage tops & water bottle.

 - knee pad covers. Yeah, this is a weird one, but we sometimes skate in venues that don't allow kneepads, so we've got to cover them up. PM me, and I'll go over the specifics.

 - Protective pouches and purses for my things like the iPod, the smartphone, camera, the cords and power adapters I carry around with me every day.

 - Something with the chemical symbols for caffeine, capsaicin, or theobromine on them - jewellery or t-shirts are cool

 - stacks of washcloths and sweat moppers also good!!

 - lunchbags/sandwich wraps. Taniquel made me some earlier this year, and they've just gotten more and more useful over time. See here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=334735.msg3911875;topicseen#msg3911875

 - spats. There's an example on my Craftster Favourites list in my profile. I want a pair so bad! Or legwarmers like these: http://www.etsy.com/listing/43690084/leg-warmers?ref=cat2_gallery_29

 - bike basket lining. I'd like a lining (either easily washable or waterproof) for the basket on the back of my bike.

 - armwarmers - from wrist to mid bicep length to wear under elbow pads

 - wisty surprise, maybe?

 - wall art. Communist/socialist themed (think Chinese style stuff) (Banga did me some INCREDIBLE stuff in Round 65) or batik themed, but if you choose batik, please PM me for details, as I like specific designs like parang rusak or mega medung.

 - 5" embroidered hoops, with my fave themes OR fave song lyrics.

 - headscarves - crocheted or sewn. Or another Calorimetry (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTcalorimetry.html ) but in a lighter sort of yarn so I can wear it in summer

 - button badges of any of my fave things.

 - waterproof cover for my bike seat.

 - snack bags - ones good for carrying nuts/dried fruits etc or herbal teabags.

 - produce bags, so I don't need to use the plastic ones at the supermarket.

 - I would like a holster or something like that for my sonic screwdriver (Such a sad, sad, pathetic geek...)

 - wide wrist cuffs, kinda punky/industrial aesthetic. I have an awesome one at home made of leather and vinyl, and I'd like more.

- I'd slaughter innocents for this logo: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/05/Ulysses_31_logo.jpg screenprinted onto a tshirt. Size... Hmm... I'm wearing a Threadless Large size if that helps at all. Can provide measurements if you ask. In fact, there's a ton of stuff I'd like screenprinted onto tshirts. I have another logo that a friend designed for me that I'd love to get printed/stencilled on a tee. I'll provide the logo on request.
Also good for printing/stencilling: The logo from Dynasty (the TV show) - black on yellow or something like that


Craft Supplies

Wool for a knitting machine, any colour don't care, just want to try to make something with the machine I've had in my loungeroom for years.

Stuff for carving handmade stamps. Got an idea - want to see if I can make it work.

Handkerchiefs I can embroider on. I'd like to step away from using tissues for mucous mopping duties.

Ear threads like these:http://earthreads.com/images-large/esb501-large.jpg
Although preferably with two bar ends, not a bar end and a dangle.

Lots of thin silver chain.

readycut origami paper for lucky star making, or just normal origami paper - preferably with abstract patterns/designs on them, not pictures of things

Wooden embroidery hoops in a range of sizes

Stuff for bagmaking - magnetic clasps, D Rings, loops, buckles, that sort of thing.

Always looking for more keys popped off from computer keyboards.

This one is sort of a hoping against hope wish, but vintage Lutterloh patterns - like these: http://www.etsy.com/listing/18830803/lutterloh-system-german-pattern-making I bought the system earlier this year, and it's made pattern drafting so nice and simple for me.

Speaking of patterns & such - knitting/sewing patterns for simple summer tops. Only proviso is that they need to look good on someone with smallish bone structure, but massive boobs. (Curse my life, I'm like a 32GG according to my sports bra) So V-shape or wide sort of necklines, straps wide enough to cover up the fabric engineering feat that is my bra, etc etc.

Pieces of foamcore board. Not huge pieces - maybe a couple of 10cm x 10cm squares will be enough for the project I have in mind.

inkpads for stamping

Haberdashery! Especially ZIPS! Interfacing is also good.

Fabric with robots on it. Good robots, not sappy emotional love-hearty cutesy robots.         


You want MORE about me?

I like communism/soviet propaganda, I like cosmonauts and taikonauts and outer space. Rockets and robots are cool. But not those sappy bloody robots with emotion. That's a pile of bull.

I like science-fiction (not fantasy). And I like the Doug Anthony Allstars. DAAS Kapital was brilliant - sci-fi and comedy in one brilliant little package. Brilliant also is Firefly and Doctor Who and Blakes 7 and Logan's Run and Rollerball and so much other stuff....

I like Indonesian traditional arts, especially the batik of Java, and the hanacaraka writing script. Traditional colours of Yogyakarta are browns and whites and blacks, traditional colours of Solo include blue. I pretty much ADORE anything Javanese.

I like rollerderby, but I bloody well HATE the Sublime Stitching rollerderby series. It's awful. My team colours are black and gold, if you ask I'll tell you my derby name & number

I like geek and nerd stuff. I'm a humanities girl, but I try to understand science and physics. I am a big big fan of spreadsheets & diagrams. I also am well versed in internet life & memes and the suchlike.

I like animation - Futurama, Ulysses 31, Chobits, GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka and La Linea. I also like manga, but most of the stuff that people rave about... I don't know it. I like Kimi wa Petto best of anything I've read in the last few years.

I like music, but I prefer Australian artists, or people I've heard during my travels. I like Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, Grinderman, Tex Perkins, Cruel Sea, Kate Miller-Heidke, Angie Hart, Luciano Ligabue, Le Vibrazioni, SamSons, Project Pop, Spandau Ballet, Paul McDermott

I like language and swearing and creativity with words and multilingualism and non-Latin writing scripts.

I am the proud owner of a new kitten. His name is Gillespie and he is just bloody adorable.

I hate the following: Harry Potter, Twilight, cupcakes, skulls, holiday-themed stuff, stuff that has images of real people recreated on it, kawaii stuff, cutesy stuff, country themes, harvest themes, Halloween, dogs, cars, non-Australian spelling, cold weather, nature/forest themes, owls, mushrooms, zombies,

Post by: Opalgryphon on February 17, 2011 05:30:06 AM
I claim Kitten Wrangler for a pair of spats

5/1/2

Hi there!  My name's Kim, I'm 28, and I've been married to my fantastic hubby for 10 years.  We have a french bulldog (Gizmo! (http://gizzymoto.weebly.com/)) and a pug (Lola).

We're California transplants, living in Austin, TX and loving it! I'm a reader, a maker, and a painter. Trying to become a bit of a do-er and taking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, and Boxing classes. I do, after all, need to burn off some of the food that I love so much - Indian Buffet here I come!

Likes: My favorite colors are purple, dark teal, turquoise, acid green, brown, charcoal, and occasionally pink when it's mixed into a kind of mod pattern that isn't over the top girly. I'm also a fan of colorful polka dots, tentacled critters, goldfish, and owls :)

Dislikes: Disney, teddy bears, lacy frou-frou stuff, grandma prints, cabbage roses, puff paint. Puppies and kittens are awesome when I can play with them, not so much when they're crafted.


Crafts

~Wisty Goodness (http://www.wists.com/opalgryphon).  It's updated, and I love everything! Where I wisted patterns...I would love it if someone wanted to make the item for me, but I would also be quite happy with the pattern.  I'd make it eventually!
~Anything French Bulldog.  Pugs are popular, so it's easier to find pug things, but not frenchies.
~Fabric Napkins Printed, stamped, stenciled, or not. Thanks Babalina58!!
~Painted Umbrella like this one: Spotty Umbrella (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=359326.0)  I'm not terribly attached to the color, but I love the polka dots!  Or maybe tentacles? An Octopus?
~Mythical creature "taxidermy" - From the cute (http://www.etsy.com/listing/13191117/large-loch-ness-monster-feltidermy)  to creepy (http://www.instructables.com/id/Halloween-decor-werewolf-head/)
~Bleach stenciled t-shirts or tank tops with animals Owls, birds, goldfish, giraffes, pretty much anything that's not super cutesy. Women's fitted shirts, (Target, or Old Navy type, I know they always have a ton at Goodwill) size small.
~NEW~Mixed Martial Arts and Crafts T-Shirt I LOVE this t-shirt, but I'm sure it would be hard to make.  Was trying to come up with an easier design, same wording.  Maybe an origami throwing star with MMA&C?
~Decorated Recipe Binder that I can add recipes to.

Post by: muddy21 on February 17, 2011 07:29:37 AM
I claim edie for supplies!

1/0/0 (just added this - sorry, I forgot)

I live in New England in an old house (1771) in the country with my two teen-aged sons and two cats.  It's a small house so I generally prefer things that are functional or useful as well as decorative, and smaller is usually better than larger.  I enjoy vintage, primitive, folk art, organic (in the broad sense of the word), and whimsical.

I love found or altered objects and tramp art ( http://www.amesgallery.com/FolkArtPages/Tramp.html ).  Re-using, recycling, and re-purposing are all high on my list of good things!  I like things that combine mechanical gadgets, Victoriana and natural history as in steampunkery.  Favored colors are earth-, sea-, or general nature-tones (I love sea glass colors), jewel tones and milk paint colors; not so much the neons and pastels.  I love designs that include birds, animals, insects, trees, rocks…more realistic than cutesy.  Steam trains and retro-50s rocket ships & science fiction are also fun (Journey to the Mushroom Planet sort of thing).  I work in a high school library and seem to be a life-long student myself so journals, writing supplies, note cards and reading or book-related projects are all possibilities.  I love polymer clay things – especially the new metallic type I’ve seen used for steampunk charms.

I'm not allergic to it, but I don’t like the smell of cigarette smoke.  No sheep wool or lanolin ingredients in anything that would be worn or put on my skin (like lotions or soaps); wool for embroidery or crafting is OK.  Food allergies below under "extras."

    * Crafts

      -Altered art/mixed media journal for recording my craft swaps – could just be a cover that fits a standard size spiral-bound notebook
      -Embroidery hoop wall art – ideas can be found on my wist http://www.wists.com/muddy21/all/?tag2=&offset=0&searchme=   I love trees, birds, doorways, gardens, or your creative design
      -Necklace holder like this amazing one http://www.wists.com/muddy21/54c0ebe3e7ab1e071bf05a4a5721b099 (http://www.wists.com/muddy21/54c0ebe3e7ab1e071bf05a4a5721b099)
      -Miniatures – fairy houses, gnome houses, Wind in the Willows or Beatrix Potter inspired items, curio cabinets, altered Altoid-tin shrines – for indoors or in the garden https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=360546.msg4227455#msg4227455 , or http://www.wists.com/muddy21/01b1630d7418f69589fc2971bfe95d8e
      -Fabric bowl or basket - see above for likely color combos
      -Loaded bead/charm bracelets – there are ones I like here http://www.etsy.com/listing/60538405/burgundy-wine-and-rich-purple-with-deep?ref=v1_other_1   but different is good, too
      -Earrings with beads or charms like http://www.wists.com/muddy21/af64c9eb9ddec6ea6c9c0f7ca7841a29?offset=40 for pierced ears, either wires or posts, not too big or long or heavy
      -Thread catcher - beanbag weight, loop or free-standing cup – any sort OK   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=360546.msg4227455#msg4227455
      -Needlebook  http://www.wists.com/muddy21/ac0355450fe93313f8d54e139a34fedf
      -Small-ish pincushion or biscornu https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368298.msg4328718#msg4328718   to keep with my embroidery supplies
      -Goatmilk or other homemade cold pressed soaps – prefer organic scents (honey, oatmeal) or spicy rather than heavily floral or sweet

    * Supplies  

      -Embroidery floss of various colors – would particularly like to try silk (partial skeins leftover from projects would be just fine!)  Please no neons or bright primary colors.
      -Thread Heaven – silicone treatment to use with metallic floss
      -Cotton fat quarters of various colors with small textural patterns, batiks or hand-dyed fabrics that might be useful for making landscape or art quilts
      -Craft books (used is fine) with embroidery or stuffie patterns
      -Clear storage boxes or tins with clear lids http://www.wists.com/muddy21/6233e788a4e9d70cd45a2db9884d0cd2 for organizing craft supplies
      -Fabric bins or baskets to help with my current craft room organizing efforts
      -Buttons of various colors, sizes, shapes
      -Wool felt
      -How-to Needle Felt starter kit or project ideas (I bought a couple of wool sweaters recently at Goodwill but not sure what to do now!)
      -Ephemera or vintage embellishments for paper arts, ATCs, wall art, etc. for interests as above

    * Extras
      -Back issues of Quilting Arts or their associated magazine titles or special issues
      -Local sweet treats from your area [but no chocolate, apples, nuts (neither tree- nor pea-) or canola (rapeseed) oil]
      -Postcards or photos of your local places or historical markers


      Thanks for claiming me!

I claim sarahj2001 for some wist inspired wall art.

This is my 3rd claim. 1 received, 1 in progress.

About Me: I'm 31 (gulp) and living in NJ (double gulp). I'm currently working as a nanny, baking up a storm, and reading lots of books. Oh yeah, and I’m totally, finally, oh-my-goodness pregnant. Due in March! No more fighting off the baby fever! I love chocolate, the ocean and the beach, books, live music, thrifting, vintage, shiny things, and soft things. I love tights and knee socks, I collect recipe cards, old handkerchiefs, tea cups, ephemera, vintage scarves, cookbooks, old books, and aprons. There is a lot more info in my blog (see the link in my signature!) I love many styles, but nothing country or overly cutesy. Please check out my wist for ideas of styles and fabrics that I like.

And an update: It’s a boy!

Wishes:
 Crafted stuff:

For Baby:- Newborn cloth diapers, fitted pocket style, snap or Velcro close, with or without inserts to fit (there are lots of patterns and tutorials here on craftster!)
- A boy baby activity blanket/quilt with fun fabric like Michael Miller, Stuff you see on Spoonflower, Freshcut, etc. No need for real designer labels, it’s just an idea of styles I like. Something with bits he can play with or pull on but not pull off!
- A baby blanket like this one (smaller is ok!) but in boy or unisex shades/prints: http://www.dana-made-it.com/2010/11/lucys-baby-blanket.html
- Boy baby clothes or baby safe (ie, they can be machine washed and chewed on!) toys (like cloth cubes or puzzle balls) I don't need any more booties or hats :)
- Baby games like this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/67250071/rainbow-fish-frolic or any of the toys in that shop really!
- Screen printed/stenciled Onesies (6 mos or larger) inspired by any in this shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/katyandzucchini?ref=seller_info&show_panel=true
- A large hanging wet bag for the nursery http://www.kellyscloset.com/Planet-Wise-Hanging-WetDry-Bag_p_3566.html
- A ring sling: http://www.etsy.com/listing/53926002/prestige-ring-sling-baby-carrier
- A scrabble tile square pillow with the letter J on it
- Absorbent burp cloths and bibs in fun unisex or boy prints (feel free to repurpose terry cloth, use minky fabric, whatever!) I have some on my wist for ideas
- HUGE WISH: A baby hammock or pea pod for his newborn photos in a pale green super soft chunky yarn. Feel free to PM me for ideas/questions. (check out this amazing photo gallery! The cuteness will slay you, and the knits are amazing! http://www.heidihope.com/index2.php)

Not for Baby  
- Rubber stamps for my new etsy shop to incorporate the name/design somehow. PM me if you can do this, I'd be super excited!
-Altered tees like the following, but to fit a big belly:
http://nikkishell.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341bfaf553ef0133efaa6dc7970b-pi or
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=106867.msg1016302#msg1016302 or this:http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10284568 or
http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/t_shirt_recon (I have tons more on my wist for inspiration!)
- Nursing tops (small/medium)

Supplies:
- A4 and A6 flat cards, fold cards, envelopes in any colors for my Gocco. Any color or brand works! Smooth paper preferred over textured. It takes a print better! Here’s a size reference: http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/envelopes/A6.html
- Anybody have an old Gocco they don't use? I'll take your supplies off your hands :)
- Solid Color Felt. Larger pieces (like what you buy by the yard) are great, but I can still use the poly squares you find at most craft stores.
- Michael Moore, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, or Freshcut fabric, even your scraps are fine! Also any other pretty printed fabrics in these styles, but not necessarily designer.
- Got one of these rulers lying around? http://store.scrapbook.com/ch-th92481.html I need one!
- ink pads –pigment ink,  archival and acid free, but I’m super partial to Tsukineko and Tim Holtz (I have lots of metallics, purple, pink, brick, black already)
- Unusual rubber stamps in zetti, victorian, retro, steampunk or background patterns (I'd love a large bird cage or harlequin print)
- Rubber stamp carving tools/supplies (not eraser type)
- any issues of Crap Hound! Even photocopies of your issues work for me! http://www.boingboing.net/2005/07/24/crap-hound-seminal-c.html
- Vintage ephemera, old sewing patterns, old paper doilies and hankies, old lace, text pages from old books, old foreign language text (think crumbly old, not 80's old :))

Extras:
- I'd love items inspired by anything I've wisted, but please PM me in case it's something I'm making! I also have an Amazon wishlist here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/38KGTSPJ8DPOU
and many etsy faves here: http://www.etsy.com/people/jojobeandesigns
Or feel free to check my blog for ideas!
- Really Spicy Hot Sauce from your area for the hubs. He likes the ones that obliterate taste buds for days.

Thank you in advance for choosing me!

Post by: ChrisSews on February 17, 2011 06:00:15 PM
I claim Banga for a baby toy and some extras...

3/0/0

Hi my name is Chris.  I’m 34 and I live in Alaska with my husband, 2 dogs, and cat.  I love the outdoors and spend a lot of time outside hiking, fishing, skiing, kayaking, etc.  I love to bring the outdoors inside with nature themed art and colors.  I love greens, browns, fall colors in reds, orange, dark yellows.  Favorite animals are otters, foxes, and all kinds of birds.  I also like sea critters…not so much fish but seahorses, jellyfish, squid, crabs, seaweed.  I’m not allergic to anything but really hate the smell of cigarette smoke.

I have a pretty extensive wist and do keep it up to date.  I’d love anything from it or inspired by something on it.  If you do pick something off my WIST please do read the comments I'll occasionally put something up and then say "Love this style but don't like that color" or some such.


Crafty items

- Dish towels.  I turned a bunch or mine that were looking shabby into rags.  Now I need some cute new ones.  I don’t really have a color scheme in the kitchen but like greens, blues, browns or red and blacks.  Embroidered, sewn with cute material, appliqué…open to any.  I like cute designs with kitchen themes (appliances, food, herbs, etc.) or any animal or nature theme. Thanks Dawl I can never have too many.

- BIG WISH - An ironing mat (a large one around 30 x 20 would fit my table well but smaller is ok)

- New – A bag for trips to the lake and dog park.  I'd love something is an over-the- shoulder or messenger style bag.  I'd love for it to be divided in two inside with one side lined with PUL, oilcloth, coated nylon, any other type water resistant material (so I can isolate slobbery tennis balls and water soaked toys).  Also a zipper or velcor pocket for keys and wallet would be great. Something in the style of  this  one  (http://"http://www.etsy.com/listing/52285202/cross-body-shoulder-bag-in-majken-lime) or   this  one  (http://"http://www.etsy.com/listing/55105522/new-bird-in-a-tree-design-canvas).  Modern fun print fabric would be nice.  See my wist for ideas of styles I like.

- A needlebook/case to hold my needle felting needles.  I’m not picky about style.  See my wists or above for themes I might like and surprise me.  PM if you need measurments for felting needles.

- Dog dish mat.  Our new rescue lab is a messy drinker so something to help contain all the water splashes would be great.  Needs to be about 12” wide to fit in the feeding area.  Length is less important maybe around 20”.  The dogs are both labs one fox red the other black. Thanks frosty772  for claiming me.

- BIG WISH - Knitting needle case/holder/roll.  I’d love something like  this  one  (http://"http://www.etsy.com/listing/65046425/multi-knitting-needle-organizer-green) that has different size pockets, including shorter ones for dpns, and wide pockets for circles, and other supplies. Thanks Claire313

- A knitting project bag/tote.  Just a small to medium sized bag that can hold a skein or two of yard and my needles.

- Soap. I prefer the cold press to melt and pour types.  I like natural scents, most fruit smells (citrus, pear, berry), vanilla, rosemary, lavender, green tea, oatmeal…just nothing with too heavy a perfume smell.  Soap in manly scents for my husband is good too.

- Handmade beauty products.  Body butter or lotion, lip balm, sugar scrubs, etc.  I’d love just about anything except bath oils, bath bomb, or any bath thing (I rarely take baths). Thanks skaborsk for the sugar scrub.

- Sea creature stuffies or amigurumi.  Would love anything with tentacles, weird or unusual fish (puffer fish, anglerfish, etc), nautilus, crab, sea slugs (nudibrach), seahorses, corals, jellyfish, etc.

-  Otter soap dishes  (http://"http://www.denalidreams.com/gift12.htm")
Love these otters…any potters out there who want to make me one of these?

Help me decorate my craft room.  The walls are an apple green.  The furniture is dark brown and white.  I’m using these colors with splashes of orange and rusts.  Some pics of the craft room organizers and idea of color schemes   here  (http://"https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366562.0")and  here  (http://"https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366567.0")

- Pillows…above colors and themes.  I have a tan futon in the craft room and need to add some pillows for comfort and to give it some color.  I want a few bolster type pillows for the arms and lots of various sized square and rectangle.  Really I’d be happy with any size shape.  I can stuff or buy a form to make it easier for you to ship.

-Crab, sea urchin, or starfish pillows.  I love   these  (http://"http://www.etsy.com/listing/57641831/recycled-chenille-sea-urchin-pillow),  this  (http://"http://www.etsy.com/listing/64281061/by-the-sea-vintage-chenille-starfish), and  these  (http://"http://www.etsy.com/listing/65782513/by-the-sea-vintage-chenille-crab-pillow)  I'd love them in any color but dark orange, brown, or tan would be fantastic.
 
-  Wall art… I would love some art to hang on my walls.  I love lots of the animal and botanical prints on vintageprintable.com site.  Would LOVE, LOVE something using these nudibrach (seaslug)  images (http://"http://vintageprintable.com/wordpress/vintage-printable-animal/animal-snails-slugs-and-slime/?noflash=1") or the 1st two images on this page  (http://"http://vintageprintable.com/wordpress/2010/10/04/vintage-printable-red-seaweed-images/?noflash=1") or really any of the Haeckel prints  (http://"http://vintageprintable.com/wordpress/vintage-printable-science-2/microscopic-rare-book-2/?noflash=1') or   jellyfish prints (http://"http://vintageprintable.com/wordpress/2010/10/21/vintage-printable-gothic-jellyfish-haeckel/").  A few of these nicely printed and framed would be fantastic.   Thanks cinnamon teal Love the ones you sent.  More of sea creature themed would be great. I like wood block/altered paper type art.  I always like embroidered wall hangings as well.  Or get creative.   There are several examples of things I like on my Wist.

-  Print/stencil t- shirts women’s size XL (or XXL if sizes run small) preferred colors: brown and tans, rust, dark orange, greens (lime, apple, sage).  Bird or animal designs, trees, leaves, etc.  Also love geek/science themes such as molecules, cells, etc. See wists for some examples.  I tend to like v- necks better but any style collar is ok.  Have some great ones from puzzler and babalina but can always use more in other colors/designs.  Long-sleeved would be great for this time of year.

-Stencil lounge pants size misses XXL or womens 1X…same themes as t-shirts above in black, brown, or grays. 

- Knit or crochet slippers, nice and thick (wool is great) to keep my toes warm on those cold Alaska days. I like the Mary Jane and ballet styles.  I wear a woman’s size 8 shoe. Again see Wist for examples of styles I like. Thanks redstar13

- Reusable cloth menstrual pads.  Mostly panty liners like  these (http://"http://www.etsy.com/shop/Randumosity?section_id=6079802") but also a couple of longer overnight ones.

- Reusable swiffer covers.  Could use regular wet and scrubbing ones as well as dusting ones Thanks redstar13

Supplies
- Green yarn, especially fun yarn, eyelash yarn, and boulce type.  I have a project in mind that uses yarn to mimic moss.  I could use lots of shades of green and any amount...even small leftovers.
-BIG WISH- Soapmaking supplies or a ‘learn to make soap’ kit.  I’m not really interested in the melt and pour…looking for cold press soap.  This is actually for my husband…he wants to learn to make soap and I want to encourage him to craft.  We don’t have anything so any supplies and/or ingredients at all will be much appreciated (we do have a local source for lye and some very basic oils).   
- BIG WISH- Knitting needles – I’m just learning to knit and only have a few needles so almost any size would be great (so far I have regular size 6 and 8 and dpns in smaller sizes 000-2, 4). I prefer wood or bamboo.  Circular in any size except 9 would be great. 
- Felt – wool felt or eco felt (please no cheap acrylic felt sheets from the craft store).  I can use all colors.
- Yarn - open to any color and type.  Would love to have some more sock and fingerling weight yarn.  Prefer wool and wool blends or nice acrylic. 
-  Embroidery pattern transfer paper or pens.  I like the ones that disappear with water best but any type is fine. 
-  Bias tape makers. Any size but ½  to 1 inch would probably get the most use
-  Serger thread cones in sets of 2-4 please.  Black, Brown, Tan, White, Greens
-  Pinking shears
-  Rotary cutter blades, regular and pinking (45 and/or 28mm size)
-  Fun modern material: fat quarters or charm packs would be awesome!  Quilting cotton.  I would love to have more modern fun prints like Amy Butler, Heather Ross, Michael Miller, etc.  I have some I like on my wist and on my  amazon wish list  (http://"http://www.amazon.com/wishlist/115GOQA7KENVC/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go")
-  Home dec weight material.  Bright modern prints or nature prints with leaves, trees, birds, etc.
 - Glass eyes.  Small sizes from 3- 6mm.  Solid black or black w/clear iris or dog or cat irises in shades of brown and green.

-  Craft books/magazines:
I love the Ernst Haeckel art forms in nature type books and CDs.
An encyclopedia of embroidery stitches type book.
An encyclopedia of knitting stitches type book.
Embroidery pattern books
Any felting and/or fiber art books.


Extras
Buttons (all sizes and colors)
Ribbon (all sizes and colors)
Sewing, knitting, embroidery, or cooking magazines
Dog toys and treats any type

I claim Edie22 for a stenciled tee & supply surprise

2/1/0

Hi! I'm Jenn and I'm 33, a programmer, mom to two health-challenged kiddos, married to my high school sweetheart and a complete craft & swap addict. Books are my number one passion in life followed closely by Harry Potter. I run a local meetup group for adult HP fans in the Dallas area. My youngest is 4 months old so reading time is pretty scarce but I make do by listening to audiobooks as I do the chores. A laundry monster has moved into our house and is trying to bury me in burp clothes, sweaters and baby socks so I have lots of chore time to listen. Some of the things I'm interested in/themes I like: hedgehogs (we've owned 7 in recent history though sadly only have one right now), kitsune, mythological creatures, reading, books, photography, mermaids, fairies, art, 80s cartoons, Pixar movies (my fave is Monster's Inc), writing, crafting anything and everything I can get my hands on. I have a thing for colored gel pens & bookmarks. My favorite music in the entire world is Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, though other than that I listen to very little classical and mostly pop. I love blues and greens and muted colors, busy patterns make me cringe and despite graduating from the University of Texas I despise orange.

Allergy Info
I am on a very restricted diet because of my son so edibles aren't a great idea. I can't have any dairy or soy. In addition, my daughter has Cystic Fibrosis and Immune Deficiency so we can't accept crafts from anyone with a CFer in their household. Also, If someone in the household has been sick within the two weeks prior to my swap item being sent I respectfully request that the sender wait until two weeks after everyone is well before sending the item out. I can't accept any crafts from smoking households or that have been exposed to smoke due to my daughter's lung issues.

Thank you so, so much in advance for whomever claims me!

*Large pin/photo board to hang on my wall and pin notes, craft ideas & photos to for inspiration in my craft room

CLAIM/ENROUTE-sent/RECEIVED

Hi, I'm Roxanne!  My daughter Lana is now in first grade and is loving it.  She is our pride and joy.  Lana has grown up on Craftster love and has received so many wonderful and thoughtfully made presents her whole life.  So THANK YOU to all of you!!   I have a hubby who helps me craft when he can.  He’s the one who runs off to the craft store to buy a craft supply I missed or off to the PO to mail my packages.  I'm originally from Hawaii, so even though I live in Maryland now I'm a local girl at heart! I've dabbled in lots of different crafts.  My true love is pottery, but I haven't done that in quite a while now.  I am starting to do paper crafts, but I’ll always be true to my beading!

Post by: mimiw on February 19, 2011 08:05:35 PM
I claim Maurer for an Amy Butler Nappy Bag - or anything else she would prefer that I can make :)

This is my 4th claim with 0 sent and 2 received.

My name is Mimi and I am a stay at home mom in West Palm Beach, FL.  I love practical, useful items for myself or for my 2 year old son, Sky.  Love nature and nature inspired items.  Favorite colors are green, blue and brown.  I also like red accents.  Favorite things are octopus, birds and trees.  Most of my house is decorated in hand made items so I always love wall art or other decor.  I am not a girly person and don't use much bath & body stuff.  I am also not a fan of country, babyish or animal prints.  Please do not send me anything purple or pink.  I also don't do jewelry or niknaks.


Crafts:

Wall art that says "I'm sew happy" - vinyl, sewn, painted, whatever!

A toddler sized backpack for my son.  You would be my hero if you could do something with trains on it - maybe similar to this one (although I would prefer his name not be on it): http://www.etsy.com/listing/67761835/personalized-train-quilted-toddler?ref=v1_other_1 (http://www.etsy.com/listing/67761835/personalized-train-quilted-toddler?ref=v1_other_1)

T shirts - size medium, or large if they are fitted.  I don't do jrs. shirts.  I like stenciled, embroidered or dyed.  Maybe a shirt with a little bird on the front side?  Or a robot?  Or a tree!! :)

Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap 67 NOW OPEN FOR CLAIMS
Post by: KatyMai on February 21, 2011 01:10:04 AM
I claim mimiw for a wisty/etsy suprise or two

This is my third claim, 2 sent, 0 recieved

Hi I’m Katy and I live with my husband in the UK. We are both rather geeky though I’m a nature/animal lover as well. I’m a full time student studying for a BA in Creative Writing. I love greens, blues and purples, anything tree themed and animals of all kinds. I’m into games such as Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft, Professor Layton, the new Mario Wii game and all the old point and click classics. I’m not a big fan of really heavy scents as they give me a headache and I’m allergic to peanuts.

Crafts.

A Wisty surprisehttp://www.wists.com/KatyMai (http://www.wists.com/KatyMai)

Decorated t-shirts with something geeky ( you know something like ‘There´s no place like 127.0.0.1’ written on it) or Mario based for my hubby. He’s XXL in British sizes and would prefer a black base colour.

World of Warcraft themes items, anything from an amigurmai voidwalker to a hearthstone bracelet. Me and hubby both play, im a warlock hes a druid, and we love the game so much we want to bring aspects of it into our house.

Anything final fantasy based, seriously anything, we are both in love with them especially FFX and FFVII.

Tree based wall art, I love the new house we have moved into but oh my gosh the walls are bare. Check out my wist for some ideas.

A messenger bag for me to use for college, preferably in a gothic or hippy style.

A small embroidered pouch for me to keep my rune set in. Preferably with a Nordic/gothic/wiccan theme, Yggdrasil for example would be great.

I really really need a new wallet. No coin pocket, just room for notes and cards would be perfect. For ideas on fabrics I like greens and blues and purples.

My tea towels have holes in them so I’d love some new ones to go in our new kitchen. Preferably with a geeky/Mario/WoW theme or a nature theme.

Thanks to moving house we now have a dining room table but no settings for it, some place mats and matching coasters would be great!

Handmade lined or unlined journal.

A small shrine based around trees and gemstones.

A pottery spoon rest.

A DSi case in a naturey or Mario theme.

A decorated votive candle holder in a tree theme, don’t mind if it’s etched or painted or what but it needs to be able to have a candle lit in it so maybe not papercraft!

A mousemat for hubby, something programming related, geeky, wow or final fantasy related.

Candles in christmassy, cinnamon, or 'red' smell.

Hearthstone pillows like these here http://www.wists.com/KatyMai/c0252a635a7f3b46e0bd2f0cbec4d142?offset=0 (http://www.wists.com/KatyMai/c0252a635a7f3b46e0bd2f0cbec4d142?offset=0)

Lavender bunny in any colour/s but green and purple - http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=3 (http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=3)

Earth spirits like these ones - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=317094.0

Crotcheted amigurami style bones for a dog to play with.

A decorated calendar for my wall.

Edgar Alan Poe themed fridge magnets.

Small see-through (cant remember the name of the material, organza??) bags for me to send my jewellery off in when it sells.






Supplies. Im fine with all supply packages!

Wooden embroidery hoops of all sizes.

A new pair of round nosed pliers, mine broke  :(

FQ’s any pattern I just love fabric.

Any yarn, handmade or shop bought.

Glass or gemstone beads.

Buttons, in blues and purples.

Fake fur, any sizes including scraps.

Any jewellery findings, I can always use more especially interesting clasps.

Nice chains for jewellery making.

Key fob hardware.

Tiny little cork topped glass vials.





Thankyou in advance for claiming me :D

I claim KatyMai for a pottery spoon rest, round nose pliers and some supplies!

1st claim /0 sent /0 received

Hiya, I'm Molly! I live in Oklahoma with my hubby (April will be our one year!) in an old 1920's home. We have one fluffy kitty (Arthur), are non-smoking and have no other allergens in our home. I am an office manager by day Mon-Friday (craftster helps me de-stress!!), and an ADD avid crafter the rest of the time. In recent years I love sewing, but also jewelry making, soapmaking, screenprinting (hope to do more in the future) and working with stoneware clay at times.
 
 
Likes/dislikes
My wists and etsy faves are a good indicator of my tastes, everything on there makes me happy just to look at it! I love color, designs and texture. My favorite colors are vivid aqua, turquoise and blue greens, grass, sage and the inside of an avocado green. Also daffodil yellow, Riley Blake Summer Song pinks and melons. I really love the combo of citrus colors together, and pictures of Greece with the blue-green ocean, bright white buildings and cobalt blue roofs.
 
I like nature (owls, birds, trees, water lilies, lotus blossoms), dots, cupcake/sweet themes, Hello Kitty and sweet vintage flower designs. I also really like Victorian, French and Art Nouveau themes.
 
I do NOT like skulls, 80's, dark/morbid themes, super cutesy/granny crafts, animal prints, strong scents (headaches)
 
I like black, white and brown as neutral/accent colors, and when it comes to metals silver or antiqued brass/copper, but please no gold. I am allergic to nickel, so sterling silver, silver plated, surgical steel and nickel free metals are best when it comes to earrings-- everything else doesn't matter on the metal.
 
We are low carb, so please no sugary sweets to tempt me! :)
 
 
Crafted
 
~Ironing board cover in a fun fabric, standard size-- I don't need padding
~Fabric tags that say The Chartreuse Lily for me to sew into items that I make
~Yoga pants or skirt, size Medium
~Yoga mat carrying bag
~Handcrafted/stamped cards in any of the themes I like, with or w/o envelopes
~Needlebook of any kind, but I love this one!
http://www.wists.com/guacaMolly/ca083804edee5d6d013e9765beb96c31
~Huge buttons Especially wooden like these-
 http://www.etsy.com/listing/67020465/gorgeous-mulberry-tree-branch-buttons
~Fitted shirt or tunic in a nature theme, womens size M-L (Pm me for measurements). There are lots of examples on my wists. I would also love a swallow or bird on an upper shoulder, as though it had just swooped over it. I really prefer a girly looking top/tunic over one that looks like a T-shirt, since I would like to wear it on my casual day at the office, and regular T-shirts are too casual.
~A coupon organizer-- mine was cheapy cardboard, and it is falling apart!
~Jewelry stand/organizer for my bedroom. I love the trees like on my wists, but I think they would be difficult to make and expensive to ship! I would be thrilled with anything that would be functional for this, our bedroom is chocolate brown and a very light blue. I mostly wear earrings.
~Hair combs-- metal or any design that you think I would like. I get headaches really easily, and I want to try these to help me hold my thick wavy hair back, away from my face!
~Placemats/table centerpiece (for a small table, 10-11" inches circumference)/napkin rings. Newly married we are definitely still in the acquisition phase, my hubby really likes to decorate for the holidays. Anything springy/Easter, St. Patty's Day, summery/4th of July or year 'round/seasonal in general. We have fall and Christmas covered. :)
~Wallet with room for lots of cards, cash, coins and a checkbook! In fabric from my wists/etsy, or I would be happy to send fabric.
Mine that I love that is looking pretty ragged is kind of like this (don't like this fabric)
http://www.etsy.com/listing/65754996/red-black-and-retro-checkbook-wallet
 
 
Supplies
I would love vintage/secondhand items, and I would be thrilled with an all supplies package.
 
~Fabric- Any designer prints, or cute fabric you think I'd like. Really cute designer, I would even be thrilled with scraps for patchwork! Anything else from a fat quarter on up please. Most wanted: anything from or similar to my wist or etsy favorites. Also cotton 'boy' prints; cars, monsters, something to make boy lunch bags, travel art packs, etc. from.
-Solids: I would love solid canvas, duck cloth, home decor weight, kona cotton or linen in any color.
 ~Sewing books with or without patterns; preferably classic and not dated, or modern like One Yard Wonders or The Bag Making Bible, but I could really use an old school techniques book, too.
~Organza bags in any color
~Dover clip art book, especially with CD included. Please PM me to make sure I don't already have it. :)
~Sewing patterns for bags, purses, slippers, thread catcher.
~Buttons-- love them, all sizes, shapes and colors, need my collection to grow!
 ~100% wool felt
~Resin instruction- I got a lot of molds for Christmas, any tips/tricks/tools of the trade would be greatly appreciated! I'm really interested in resin work like this etsy seller does:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/UnderGlass?ga_search_query=underglass&ga_search_type=seller_usernames
~Medium to heavy weight iron on interfacing
~Walking foot for Janome Sewist sewing machine
~Hardware for bags/wristlets: Especially magnetic closures-- standard or hidden. Also keychains, lobster claws, D-rings, purse forms etc.
~Sari silk; ribbon or yarn form
~Jewelry supplies: Ring blanks, bracelet blanks, bobby pins, Toggle closures for bracelets/necklaces, lengths of chain, crimp closures like for using silk ribbon for a pendant, pendant trays, ring bezels with trays, jump rings, wire in any gauge, earring findings-- on these, preferably silver plated or sterling, but oxidized/antiqued that is nickel free is welcome.
~Modge podge
~Diamond glaze
~Emery sand for pincushions
~Leather pieces-- any kind, I'd like to experiment with using it for the soles of slippers

 
Extras:
Any kind of tea, gum, sewing/crafting magazines you are through with

Hello, My name is Monica. I live in North Carolina at the beach. I am a happy go lucky girl not to uptight and just love to have fun and enjoy crafts and homemade gifts are wonderful. I have cancer I have to keep saying it as I just know I will kick the shit out of it and win..I am raising my 2 grandkids. It is hard to really do it again but I love being with them and know they are doing great and happy well adjusted kids. I have 2 dogs now as my Buster passed away on the 14th  Cry My heart broke that day. I miss him so much but he had almost 16 years and was never abused like our other 2 that we rescued so he has always had a charmed life.

 I really hate neon, I don't like country looking, I totally dislike granny looking fabric and OMG the Andy Warhol GAG..don't know why I just cant stand it.

 We cant have anything from an indoor smokers home, you must wash hands good if outdoor smokers as it is the sticky tar stuff not really the stinky smoke that my granddaughter can be around.

Post by: gamemom42 on February 22, 2011 03:45:13 PM
I claim babalina58 for an autumn button tree similar to the one on her wist

2/1/0


My name is Teresa.  I live in Ga. with my wonderful hubby of 30 years and our two grown daughters ( who have both returned to the nest to finish their educations).  I have a grown stepson and am Mimi to a 13 year old boy and 7 year old girl.   We share our little homestead with a pet cow, mini donkey ( he's something of a cute bully), three pygmy goats, and six cats.

I use swaps to collect OOAK gifts for my friends and family so my wist reflects quite a variety of tastes.  Please read tags/notes carefully if you choose something wisty for color preferences, sizes, etc.  I am completely okay with you taking something from my wist and making it in your favorite medium rather than the one pictured.  I can't tolerate the smell of smoke or lavender.

Crafts:

Enormous Wish Clothing for an 18" doll like the American Girl dolls.  There are examples on my wist, but I would be thrilled with anything you chose to make.  Accessories like hats and purses would be welcome too.

 Huge Wish   A book safe made from one of the classics ( maybe a damaged one or one of those really cheap ones you can get now)

handmade thank you cards in any of these themes:  bees, bugs, crayons, cute cats, cute mushrooms
colorful polka dots and/or stripes

bee themed hanging plastic bag holder (prefer pretty/realistic print to cute)

cat crinkle sack covered in one of these themes:  skulls ( sugar skulls or real looking ones), sushi, pirates, Arsenal soccer, or just black and white

Anything Arsenal themed... really, anything!

yoga pants in women's size 2.  Any color, any style

beaded tree sculpture ( not jewelry) in amber/orange/brown (small, even tiny is fine)

cat tent that looks "piratey"

BIG WISH black scoodie in fleece with hood part lined in something silky so my hair won't get crazy.  I would want silky inside black as well

sz. 2 blue and white polka dot swirly skirt ( for a 5' tall woman) ( simple is great, doesn't need to be super swirly, just have a bit of swish in it)

sz. 51/2 mukluks with fake leather soles ( looking for that speed knitter again)


Big Wish a set of fabric coasters in cranberry, dark green, and possibly cream ( simple is best)

An altered journal in a world geography theme.  I know almost nothing on the subject and feel that it's time to do something about that.  I intend to teach myself and since its such an extensive subject, it would need to be a kind of large journal/notebook.


supplies:

Thread Heaven
silk embroidery floss ( I realize this is expensive so a teeny little package would be great!)
one of those needlework magnifiers that hang around the neck ( used is great)
wood-look plastic embroidery hoops, especially ovals
wool felt ( scraps are fine, its for a penny rug) (I really want wool felt, not felted wool.. does that make sense?)
any Japanese craft book ( except crochet)
bias tape makers
Enormous Wish  any knitting or weaving loom ( any size, made of anything) ( I now have the small oval knifty knitter that makes socks so any others)
sublime stitching transfers for hand embroidery ( monkey love, zombies, or vital organs) ( It's okay if you've used a couple of the patterns and just send me what you didn't use from the package)
transfer pens
all purpose thread ( new please) (no black, white, blue, green or pink)
buttons in greens and fall colors only




extras:

vintage children's books
Bunny Suicide anything
cat toys/treats
gluten free treats ( people treats, not cat  Smiley)

Thank you so much for claiming me!

Post by: luckdragon on February 22, 2011 06:19:50 PM
I claim gamemom42 for some American Girl doll clothes!

First claim this round!
1st claim/0 outstanding/0 sent /0 received

My name is Karen and I live in Austin, TX with my teenaged dd (who typically ends up with most of my swap items   ), a huge, goofy lab-mix and a lovely, prissy cat.

I love designs from the 60's and early 70s (think mod & flower power). Also 50's post-modern. I used to have a 1974 VW Thing and I miss it a lot! I also love Asian designs in fabric and artwork.
I prefer clean lines and bold graphics rather than cutesy or fussy prints.

I was born in the year of the Dragon and I just love them! And English Bulldogs (cute, not fierce).  I love anything magical/wonderous including fairies and Alice in Wonderland. 
Also, pretty much any Amy Butler fabric.

Other random things I love: silver jewelry, reading, travel, art, geekery, the periodic table, Scooby-Doo, GLEE!, nature, trees, dandelions, rain, cooking, whimsy. For more info check my wist .


I would love anything from my wist : www.wists.com/luckdragon but especially the things below.  In general, I prefer practical things that can be used (with the exception of small wall art or hoops for
my hoopla wall).  My favorite colors are bolder/earthy tones to 60’s mod.  Blues/greens/tangerine/black/white/deep red (again, examples in my wist).  Please no neon colors or pastels.

REALLY would love anything in highlighted below in  PURPLE

Thank you in advance for picking me!!

CLAIM/ENROUTE-sent/RECEIVED

Hi, I'm Roxanne!  My daughter Lana is now in first grade and is loving it.  She is our pride and joy.  Lana has grown up on Craftster love and has received so many wonderful and thoughtfully made presents her whole life.  So THANK YOU to all of you!!   I have a hubby who helps me craft when he can.  He’s the one who runs off to the craft store to buy a craft supply I missed or off to the PO to mail my packages.  I'm originally from Hawaii, so even though I live in Maryland now I'm a local girl at heart! I've dabbled in lots of different crafts.  My true love is pottery, but I haven't done that in quite a while now.  I am starting to do paper crafts, but I’ll always be true to my beading!

Post by: Banga on February 23, 2011 07:40:36 AM
I claim atsuko for a jemima trees painting :)
This is my 4th claim, 2 received, 1 in progress

About Me: I'm 31 (gulp) and living in NJ (double gulp). I'm currently working as a nanny, baking up a storm, and reading lots of books. Oh yeah, and I’m totally, finally, oh-my-goodness pregnant. Due in March! No more fighting off the baby fever! I love chocolate, the ocean and the beach, books, live music, thrifting, vintage, shiny things, and soft things. I love tights and knee socks, I collect recipe cards, old handkerchiefs, tea cups, ephemera, vintage scarves, cookbooks, old books, and aprons. There is a lot more info in my blog (see the link in my signature!) I love many styles, but nothing country or overly cutesy. Please check out my wist for ideas of styles and fabrics that I like.

And an update: It’s a boy! And he's gearing up to be a monster. 6 lbs. 11 oz. at my 34 week scan, so I won't be needing those newborn clothes :P

Wishes:
 Crafted stuff:

For Baby:- Cloth diapers, fitted pocket style, snap or Velcro close, with or without inserts to fit (there are lots of patterns and tutorials here on craftster!) Your preloved, but clean ones are ok, too!
- A boy baby activity blanket/quilt with fun fabric like Michael Miller, Stuff you see on Spoonflower, Freshcut, etc. No need for real designer labels, it’s just an idea of styles I like. Something with bits he can play with or pull on, but not pull off!
- A baby blanket like this one (smaller is ok!) but in boy or unisex shades/prints: http://www.dana-made-it.com/2010/11/lucys-baby-blanket.html
- 6 mos. or larger Boy baby clothes or baby safe (ie, they can be machine washed and chewed on!) toys (like cloth cubes or puzzle balls) I don't need any more booties or hats :)
- Baby games like this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/67250071/rainbow-fish-frolic or any of the toys in that shop really! Thanks so much 1watermonkey!
- Screen printed/stenciled Onesies (6 mos or larger) inspired by any in this shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/katyandzucchini?ref=seller_info&show_panel=true
- Baby kimonos like these for 8lbs. or bigger: http://www.dana-made-it.com/2011/02/baby-kimonos-burp-cloths-and-giving.html
- BIG WISH: A large hanging wet bag for the nursery in shades of brown and cream (some light blue is cool, too!) http://www.kellyscloset.com/Planet-Wise-Hanging-WetDry-Bag_p_3566.html
- BIG WISH: A ring sling: http://www.etsy.com/listing/53926002/prestige-ring-sling-baby-carrier
- A scrabble tile square pillow with the letter J on it
- Absorbent burp cloths and bibs in fun unisex or boy prints (feel free to repurpose terry cloth, use minky fabric, whatever!) I have some on my wist for ideas
- HUGE WISH: A baby hammock or pea pod for his newborn photos in a pale green super soft chunky yarn. Feel free to PM me for ideas/questions. (check out this amazing photo gallery! The cuteness will slay you, and the knits are amazing! http://www.heidihope.com/index2.php)

Not for Baby  
- Rubber stamps for my new etsy shop to incorporate the name/design somehow. PM me if you can do this, I'd be super excited!
-Altered tees like the following, but to fit a big belly:
http://nikkishell.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341bfaf553ef0133efaa6dc7970b-pi or
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=106867.msg1016302#msg1016302 or this:http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10284568 or
http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/t_shirt_recon (I have tons more on my wist for inspiration!)
- Nursing tops (small/medium)

Supplies:
- A4 and A6 flat cards, fold cards, envelopes in any colors for my Gocco. Any color or brand works! Smooth paper preferred over textured. It takes a print better! Here’s a size reference: http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/envelopes/A6.html
- Anybody have an old Gocco they don't use? I'll take your supplies off your hands :)
- Solid Color Felt. Larger pieces (like what you buy by the yard) are great, but I can still use the poly squares you find at most craft stores.
- Michael Moore, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, or Freshcut fabric, even your scraps are fine! Also any other pretty printed fabrics in these styles, but not necessarily designer.
- Got one of these rulers lying around? http://store.scrapbook.com/ch-th92481.html I need one!
- ink pads –pigment ink,  archival and acid free, but I’m super partial to Tsukineko and Tim Holtz (I have lots of metallics, purple, pink, brick, black already)
- Unusual rubber stamps in zetti, victorian, retro, steampunk or background patterns (I'd love a large bird cage or harlequin print)
- Rubber stamp carving tools/supplies (not eraser type)
- any issues of Crap Hound! Even photocopies of your issues work for me! http://www.boingboing.net/2005/07/24/crap-hound-seminal-c.html
- Vintage ephemera, old sewing patterns, old paper doilies and hankies, old lace, text pages from old books, old foreign language text (think crumbly old, not 80's old :))

Extras:
- I'd love items inspired by anything I've wisted, but please PM me in case it's something I'm making! I also have an Amazon wishlist here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/38KGTSPJ8DPOU
and many etsy faves here: http://www.etsy.com/people/jojobeandesigns
Or feel free to check my blog for ideas!
- Really Spicy Hot Sauce from your area for the hubs. He likes the ones that obliterate taste buds for days.
- Anyone have any Snappies? I have no idea how to afix cloth diapers that don't have snaps and I don't want to use pins.

Thank you in advance for choosing me!

* I collect dolphins, anything dolphin makes me happy
* Non smoking, no pet household ( other than the goldfish of course )
* My fave colors are pink, brown, red, green, and blue

* I like things that are useful. I'm not real big on "knick knack" type stuff - at least right now. Don't want to have to drag more with us than we have to when we move

BIG WISH ** Padded Laptop Sleeve - My laptop is HUGE 17.3" screen, just a nice padded slide in sleeve would be great - again, beachy/dolphin type theme would be wonderful :)

I claim bsonlytoots for a fabric dish drying mat.

This is my 5th claim with 2 sent and 2 received.

My name is Mimi and I am a stay at home mom in West Palm Beach, FL.  I love practical, useful items for myself or for my 2 year old son, Sky.  Love nature and nature inspired items.  Favorite colors are green, blue and brown.  I also like red accents.  Favorite things are octopus, birds and trees.  Most of my house is decorated in hand made items so I always love wall art or other decor.  I am not a girly person and don't use much bath & body stuff.  I am also not a fan of country, babyish or animal prints.  Please do not send me anything purple or pink.  I also don't do jewelry or niknaks.


Crafts:

Wall art that says "I'm sew happy" - vinyl, sewn, painted, whatever!

A toddler sized backpack for my son.  You would be my hero if you could do something with trains on it - maybe similar to this one (although I would prefer his name not be on it): http://www.etsy.com/listing/67761835/personalized-train-quilted-toddler?ref=v1_other_1 (http://www.etsy.com/listing/67761835/personalized-train-quilted-toddler?ref=v1_other_1)

T shirts - size medium, or large if they are fitted.  I don't do jrs. shirts.  I like stenciled, embroidered or dyed.  Maybe a shirt with a little bird on the front side?  Or a robot?  Or a tree!! :)  
Here are a few examples of other stuff I like:
http://www.etsy.com/listing/62908624/gift-sale-trees-tshirt-goth-graphic-tee (http://www.etsy.com/listing/62908624/gift-sale-trees-tshirt-goth-graphic-tee)

Throw pillow covers!  I have size 18" and 14" pillows but can make other sizes to fit something different.  Here are a few I like:

I claim claire313 for a wisty surprise.
5th claim, 3 sent, 2 outstanding (im working on them), I received 2 claims.

 I am puzzler and I live in Connecticut, US.  I like simple and useful things.  I love the idea that something was re-purposed or recycled, so if you can be “green” while crafting something for me- that would be wonderful. Please don't send me anything pink.  I like green/gray/blue colors or black and white combinations.  Any peaceful shades or patterns are OK.  Thank you! :)

Things I would love to get:

CRAFTS:

 Something featuring interesting type. I am into typography and would love a  journal or pillow cover (or something else)  with some nice letters or words on it.  If you can make a picture made of words - that would be incredible.

Writing journal/altered book.  (mixed papers would be great) Perhaps something with writing prompts or ideas?

Fabric bucket (bucket/bag made of fabric for either my yarn or fabric storage, etc)

zippered bag, something around 5x9 inches made from cotton fabric and with lining.

wallet  -see different examples on my wist

water bottle bag/holder

“How to” Kit (quilting, embroidery/needlework, felting,  whatever your specialty happens to be).  

I would LOVE this kind of slippers: http://wists.com/puzzler/e3fd698d80ecb769570e9eba3c942033?offset=0 or other slippers from my wist.  Size 9-10

Snack baggies  (one or two) (like this, for instance: http://www.wists.com/puzzler/2fb140159c5154d0ef456d0d15cc68f9?offset=0  )

Anything from my wist: http://wists.com/puzzler

CRAFT SUPPLIES:

Circular needles – ANY size!

Cable needles

quilting tools or supplies

 black inkpads

any natural yarn (wool, cotton)

EXTRAS:

Books or magazines with knitting, crochet or sewing projects. I am more interested in great patterns, than in the “how to” do these crafts.  

 Please feel free to ask me any questions.  Thanks for reading and thanks if you want to make me something!   :)

I claim puzzler for circular needle and a bunch of crochet pattern booklets.

BRB with list

3rd claim, 1 sent, 1 recieved

Hello.  I’m located in the United States.  I have no allergies.  But, hubby has sinus issues so nothing too perfumy or too smoke smelling.  Themes I love are:  pirates, pirate ships, octopus, dragons, Harry Potter, Gryffindor, Hogwarts, video games, tattoos, koi, gryffins, phoenixs’ (the fire bird), burgundy/gold, red/black polka dots, teal/black, knee high socks with stripes/argyle or other cute prints, cupcakes, argyle and other fun prints, cute Japanese prints, 1950s style full aprons and cherry blossoms.  My style is cute/sexy with some geeky/nerd as well.  Think Harry potter scarves, Nintendo shirts, and 1950s retro aprons.  I love playing video games, reading, watching movies, baking bread, crafting and being with my family.  I don’t like lace or frilly things, adult or creepy themed crafts, the colors orange/yellow/pastel/neon. 


Crafted items:
-Nook case like this, but in a theme I like.  I have a regular nook.  Bonus if its harry potter related! 
http://www.etsy.com/listing/62925761/the-original-padded-nook-nook-color-new
-owl post stamp, kinda big because i write pretty big.

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=280787.msg3179235#msg3179235
-sturdy & small black messenger bag with a zipper closer and 2 zipper pockets inside, and a long sturdy strap (size wise, to hold keys, wallet, cell, psp/ds & hand sanatizer)
-sturdy & small tan messenger with zipper closer and  2 zipper pockets inside, and a long sturdy strap (size wise, to hold keys, wallet, cell, psp/ds & hand sanatizer)
-goat balaclava (Or perhaps the pattern so I cant ‘try’ to make one myself)
http://thingsandideas.wordpress.com/2009/09/28/baalaclava/

Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap 67 NOW OPEN FOR CLAIMS
Post by: zatanna on February 23, 2011 07:24:32 PM
I claim missmoppet for tshirt/hoodies in a nerdly or BBT theme.

1st claim (eXcItInG!) with 0 sent and 0 recieved.

Hi! I live in Houston, TX with my partner in crime and our herd of cat minions (no kids). I work for a local healthcare non-profit and am very open minded. About to move into a new condo with my very own craft room and lovely craftster-made things would make the new place feel like home! I am a fairly chill, laid back and nerdy person.

Vitals - I have asthma, so things that are smokey or strong floral scents do me in. Pets are fine though. Wist: http://www.wists.com/zatanna

Themes - Nerdy, spooky, kitschy, mod, rainy day. I love comics (Catwoman is my all time fave), cats, craftiness, coffee, tea, Halloween, Harry Potter-world, old-timey occult/magic themes, reading and tv perusing. I have a lot on my Craftster profile.

Colors/patterns - I tend to prefer black/white/grey and bold/bright colors over pastels or neutral for my own personal stuffs. I put fabrics on my wist bc patterns are too hard to explain! My new craft room will be grey with aqua and yellow. Hoorays! Almost my entire wardrobe is black with some bright colors, and for metallics, I prefer silver toned over gold toned.

Crafts

Bags - I would really love a bag that is the size of a purse (smallish) but with a long strap that I can wear across my chest. Or just a regular purse-style bag since I have a lot of totes.
Necklaces - I am completely open to any craft medium for necklaces. Style wise, I prefer non-choker. What I tend to wear most often are large and/or chunky pieces...I tend to wear just one large piece often.
Earrings - Same as the necklace schtick, except I prefer dangly to post.
Reusable snack/sandwich bags - My guilt at my ziploc/tin foil usage is killing me!
Lunch bag - I am sick of my insulated one because it's big and inflexible, and sick of the one I made because it has no lining, so I would love a lunch sack that is zippered and lined with something plasticy, but also squishable!
Granny's daughters/squares/motifs - I am open to any fiber type, but may prefer acrylic for blanket making (RH is fine, I am no yarn snob hah). Would prefer square shape motifs so I can stick them in the scrap blanket I am working on.
Bath/body stuff - I esp. would love lip balms, lotions, or body wash items. I tend to shower over baths, so bath bombs and bar soaps are less likely to be used.
Sewing machine cover - Can pm dimensions
Cricut expression cover - Does not need to be fancy, just want to keep the cat hair off.
Ironing mat - For my craft room!
Slippers - Any medium or color is fine, size 10-11 women.
Hat  - I wanted another cloche hat in a dark color - the brimmed ones are my fave!
Pillows - My new craft room will need some pillows (see above for theme etc)
Wist - Something off my wist - it's uptodate! http://www.wists.com/zatanna (http://www.wists.com/zatanna)



Supplies

Frames/hoops - For small needlework projects.
Fabric - Wists/themes above are general indicators of what I like - Colors I could use in my craft room would be a plus.
Cricut crap- 12x12 or 12x24 mats, blades, deep blade housing etc.
Adhesive vinyl - Any color, for use with said cricut
Needle felting supplies - Always wanted to try this!
Some sort of cooking project type kit - My bf would <3 you as I kinda suck at cooking
Bath/body crafting supplies - Another craft I have wanted to try
Jewerly bits - charms, findings, ring bases, stones, beads etc. Just learning how to do this, so I really don't have a lot of supplies.
Safety eyes
Interfacing - Any kind
Magnets - I have the sheet magnet tape, but need the stronger glue on type
Transfer paper 
Transfer pen thingie
Aida 14 ct  - Black or other color (I have a lot of white/ivory/cream)


Extras: Teas, coffees, mini bits and bobs, cat toys, yarn/fabric scraps

Thanks for choosing me and I will try to make my list prettier next time!!!  :D

Hello, My name is Monica. I live in North Carolina at the beach. I am a happy go lucky girl not to uptight and just love to have fun and enjoy crafts and homemade gifts are wonderful. I have cancer I have to keep saying it as I just know I will kick the shit out of it and win..I am raising my 2 grandkids. It is hard to really do it again but I love being with them and know they are doing great and happy well adjusted kids. I have 2 dogs now as my Buster passed away on the 14th  Cry My heart broke that day. I miss him so much but he had almost 16 years and was never abused like our other 2 that we rescued so he has always had a charmed life.

 I really hate neon, I don't like country looking, I totally dislike granny looking fabric little flowers like gramdma and  Laura Engels looking and OMG the Andy Warhol GAG..don't know why I just cant stand it.

 We cant have anything from an indoor smokers home, you must wash hands good if outdoor smokers as it is the sticky tar stuff not really the stinky smoke that my granddaughter can be around. ALSO, we both have metal issues so must be nickle free at least the earring post and metal that touches my neck...I.E. the chain

I'm claiming our fearless leader, babalina58, for a surprise (or two!) She'll just have to wait and see what it (they?) turn out to be! ;)

Claim #4 overall / 2 in transit / 1 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.

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
NEW -- ;D ;D Nook cover! I like this style (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/699a4d5dbeb717c0ae9d69e6aacd829c?offset=0) a lot. (Also, like the one by mimiw! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5344228500/) I got a regular Nook (NOT nook color) for Christmas and I'd like some cases! I put some fabric examples and such here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/nook_fabric) and some here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/pillow) for fabric inspiration ideas.

 -- ;D  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.

   -- 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 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.

 -- Any sewn wist item You can see all the sewing items I've wisted here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/sewing).


Knitting & Crochet
NEW -- Cable Knit Fingerless Gloves (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/e39633c25869975e347c00f8d7a2054b?offset=40). I love the color, the cable (I love cable!!) and the fact they're a soft acrylic for easy care. Yes please!! (Please note, I have tiny wrists - like 5.5" - so aim for small width please!)

 -- 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 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.

 -- Any knitted wist items. You can see all the wisted knit items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/knitting).


Other
NEW  ;D ;D -- Chibi Marty or Doc BttF Plush. Probably bigger than a medium, but I want to list it anyway. Craftster Noxika makes these awesome plush (like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370204.msg4353051#msg4353051) and this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=362199.msg4251004#msg4251004)) and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE one made of Marty McFly or Doc Brown from Back to the Future. Can't you just imagine how awesome a Marty with his orange "life vest" jacket or Doc with his wild hair in this style plush would be??

--  ;D Batik/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.)

 -- ;D  Fitted Style Decorated T-Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. Fitted (not the "unisex" ones that are boxy) in V-neck, scoop or whatever (just nothing that's so low cut it requires another shirt underneath) in size small or US 4 equivalent. (I like the ones from Target a lot but am open to others too!) 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. It's getting warm here in Florida - time for some new tees!!

 --  Stained Glass Item - 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.)

 --  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.

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns) or my amazon wishlist (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/wishlist/397IKAEGOJ51E/), my etsy favorites (http://www.etsy.com/people/PhoenixFireDesigns/favorites), the colors I like, my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like! I KEEP MY WISTS UPDATED SO IF IT'S ON THE LIST, I WANT IT! :D


Craft Supplies
--  ;D ;D Jewelry Presentation Displays I have one in black but I desperately need a necklace one in WHITE for photographing my work. I could also use a necklace/earring combo and a bracelet hand. Used ones in good shape are fine too! Any kind of leather/leatherette/vinyl is awesome. These are examples of 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 use more faceted, briolette and other cut stones. Here are some I really am coveting.
(Listings shown are just for example of the stone. Can easily be smaller quantities for more reasonable cost!)
 - Any gems on my Etsy favorites - Bunches listed here (http://www.etsy.com/people/PhoenixFireDesigns/favorites)
 -Chrome Diopside Beads - Especially teardrops or briolettes or rondelles would be nice. Example (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380270868769)
 - Mexican Fire Opal Rondelle Beads - example (http://cgi.ebay.com/Multi-Color-Mexican-Fire-Opal-4mm-Rondelle-Beads-15-/360292173664) or example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/41280384/7-inches-mexican-fire-opal-faceted)
 - Hesonite Garnet - example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/40070013/nice-quality-gorgeous-colour-hesonite)
 - Sapphire Rondelle Beads - In a red/orange/yellow combo. example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/49315448/aa-songia-sapphire-briolette-drops-20) or example (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50895895/take-10-percent-off-entire-store)

 -- 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!

 -- Sterling Silver or Gold Plate Jewelry Wire I always need jewelry wire. I need some super fine sterling and/or gold in about 28 gauge. I also love Artistic Wire (http://www.artbeads.com/awr24svr10.html) brand in 24 gauge in silver, copper and brown.

NEW -- Ninja Men Cookie Cutters (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/931973dabb452b905f137bfb7aec059e?offset=20). OMG, how freakin' awesome are these???

NEW --  ;D Puffy Heart Pendant Instructions/Kit I've wanted to learn how to make this forever! Bonus would be if I had some of the materials needed as well like the stringing material. There's a full kit HERE (http://www.etsy.com/listing/54237413/crystal-puffy-heart-pendant-kit) and another HERE (http://www.etsy.com/listing/46025864/crystal-puffy-heart-pendant-kit) which is totally helpful and even more awesome!!

NEW -- Button Maker I think it'd be fun to make my own buttons. Some sort of starter kit would be great. I've never made any before. Can totally be used/pre-owned!



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!
 -- Beading/Wire-Wrapping/Jewelry magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! ;D

Post by: luckdragon on February 24, 2011 12:35:36 PM
I claim PFD for a Puffy Heart Pendant Kit!  (cuz I need to enable more jewelry-making greatness!)

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

My name is Karen and I live in Austin, TX with my teenaged dd (who typically ends up with most of my swap items   ), a huge, goofy lab-mix and a lovely, prissy cat.

I love designs from the 60's and early 70s (think mod & flower power). Also 50's post-modern. I used to have a 1974 VW Thing and I miss it a lot! I also love Asian designs in fabric and artwork.
I prefer clean lines and bold graphics rather than cutesy or fussy prints.

I was born in the year of the Dragon and I just love them! And English Bulldogs (cute, not fierce).  I love anything magical/wonderous including fairies and Alice in Wonderland.  
Also, pretty much any Amy Butler fabric.

Other random things I love: silver jewelry, reading, travel, art, geekery, the periodic table, Scooby-Doo, GLEE!, nature, trees, dandelions, rain, cooking, whimsy. For more info check my wist .


I would love anything from my wist : www.wists.com/luckdragon but especially the things below.  In general, I prefer practical things that can be used (with the exception of small wall art or hoops for
my hoopla wall).  My favorite colors are bolder/earthy tones to 60’s mod.  Blues/greens/tangerine/black/white/deep red (again, examples in my wist).  Please no neon colors or pastels.

REALLY would love anything in highlighted below in  PURPLE

Thank you in advance for picking me!!

I claim Luckdragon for a tree of life sculpture!

6/0/4

Hi there!  My name's Kim, I'm 28, and I've been married to my fantastic hubby for 10 years.  We have a french bulldog (Gizmo! (http://gizzymoto.weebly.com/)) and a pug (Lola).

We're California transplants, living in Austin, TX and loving it! I'm a reader, a maker, and a painter. Trying to become a bit of a do-er and taking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, and Boxing classes. I do, after all, need to burn off some of the food that I love so much - Indian Buffet here I come!

Likes: My favorite colors are purple, dark teal, turquoise, acid green, brown, charcoal, and occasionally pink when it's mixed into a kind of mod pattern that isn't over the top girly. I'm also a fan of colorful polka dots, tentacled critters, goldfish, and owls :)

Dislikes: Disney, teddy bears, lacy frou-frou stuff, grandma prints, cabbage roses, puff paint. Puppies and kittens are awesome when I can play with them, not so much when they're crafted.


Crafts

~Wisty Goodness (http://www.wists.com/opalgryphon).  It's updated, and I love everything! Where I wisted patterns...I would love it if someone wanted to make the item for me, but I would also be quite happy with the pattern.  I'd make it eventually!
~Anything French Bulldog.  Pugs are popular, so it's easier to find pug things, but not frenchies.
~Painted Umbrella like this one: Spotty Umbrella (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=359326.0)  I'm not terribly attached to the color, but I love the polka dots!  Or maybe tentacles? An Octopus?
~Mythical creature "taxidermy" - From the cute (http://www.etsy.com/listing/13191117/large-loch-ness-monster-feltidermy)  to creepy (http://www.instructables.com/id/Halloween-decor-werewolf-head/)
~Bleach stenciled t-shirts or tank tops with animals Owls, birds, goldfish, giraffes, pretty much anything that's not super cutesy. Women's fitted shirts, (Target, or Old Navy type, I know they always have a ton at Goodwill) size small.
~NEW~Mixed Martial Arts and Crafts T-Shirt I LOVE this t-shirt, but I'm sure it would be hard to make.  Was trying to come up with an easier design, same wording.  Maybe an origami throwing star with MMA&C?
~Decorated Recipe Binder that I can add recipes to.
~Pendants/Necklaces Living Moss Pendant (http://www.etsy.com/listing/66612789/living-moss-pendant-on-sterling-ball),  Painted Wood Pendant (http://www.etsy.com/shop/ZephyrWoods?ref=seller_info),  Stained Glass Pendant (http://www.etsy.com/shop/BelloGlass?ref=seller_info), Pebble Necklace (http://www.stylehive.com/bookmark/pebbles-in-a-pebble-orepuki-by-rebecca-ward-necklaces-oye-modern-280957), Sloth (http://wists.com/jemimah/e9a1fa4bc94e44f128e24cc7dd8271dd?offset=140), ~NEWTangled Wire Choker (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=372617.0)
~Embroidered Cuff Bracelet (http://www.etsy.com/listing/65265581/hand-embroidered-wool-felt-cuff-bracelet)  I like the whole thing, but it could be cool with a pattern like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/47835851/clutch-davey) too!
~Wall art My wist (http://www.wists.com/opalgryphon) and my DA wishlist (http://opalgryphon.deviantart.com/wishlist/) probably give you a good idea what I like.   and one more (http://mattbenn8.deviantart.com/art/Sea-of-Green-13352200?q=favby%3Aopalgryphon%2F1497583&qo=37).
~Re-usable lunch bag (Small grocery bag size?)  Use your imagination, but it has to fit a microwave meal and some fruit, lol.
~Animal, Monster, or Critter Stuffies Sewn, not knit or crocheted.  They're lovely, but I have plenty of amis! I love Hestia The Hedgehog (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=238780.0) and Troglodyte (http://www.wists.com/dearelizabeth/0abdc9d03b08daf19762e81685d7c50e?offset=0)
~Cute Needle Book
~Healthy Snacks Home made beef jerky, granola, trail mix, dried fruit, fruit leathers, etc.  Whatever you can make that would ship well!
~Fabric coil coasters I like the colors in these ones (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=349680.10) about a third of the way down the page
~Owl Pillow (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369019.70)
~Glittens! Sewn Convertable Mittens (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=276577.0)
~Tentacle Hoop (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370271.0) a la Jemimah :)
~Trashy Novel Wallet (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=167691.0) Preferably in Sci-Fi or cheesy romance ;)
~Shawl Pin I love all of the Pins (http://www.etsy.com/shop/nicholasandfelice?section_id=5011288) by Nicholas and Felice.  I have very short hair, so their hair forks are a no-go, lol.
~Leather Wrap Bracelet Semi Precious beads (Something like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370504.msg4356822;topicseen#msg4356822)) would be awesome, but I'm sure anything you come up with would be great!
~Tea Pot Cozy Some I like: Two Piece (http://www.etsy.com/listing/61371094/hand-knitted-pure-wool-tea-cosy), Recycled Gray Flower (http://www.etsy.com/listing/55413993/recycled-felt-grey-flower-cosy-free), Sock Monkey (http://www.etsy.com/listing/67172796/free-sh-before-valentines-day-sock), Owl (http://www.etsy.com/listing/62788795/morning-owl-tea-cosy-pdf-email-knitting?ref=sr_gallery_14&ga_search_query=tea%2Bcosy&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_shopname=artspell&ga_page=6), Gathered Fabric (http://www.etsy.com/listing/66191285/gray-swirls-reverses-to-teal-purple-on) I have a 4 cup pot ;) Claimed by Ms. Edie!!
~Raygun Scarf (http://shanalogic.com/item.php?item_id=2177&page=20&category_id=126) Printed, stencilled, stamped, embroidered....up to you :)
~NEWCreepy Necklace Holder (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=333885.msg3857170#msg3857170) I would love this....or doll arms to make my own if you have them or can find them them.  I can't seem to find either dolls with good arms, or the arms themselves (at craft stores).
~NEWSugar Skull Bear Plushy (http://www.oopsicraftmypants.com/2009/11/sugar-skull-plush-bear.html)- Now, I'm not normally into sugar skulls in general, but this is just so awesome I can't stand it.

Supplies
I will be happy to take used items and project leftovers off your hands as long as they're clean and relatively new!

~Lead Free Solder
~Soldering Iron Rheostat
~Old clock parts (hands, gears, etc.)
~Fun and funky fabrics like a lot of the stuff Spoonflower (http://www.spoonflower.com/market_browse?color_one=0&color_two=0&category_one=8&recent_cat=8&recent_choice=0) sells.   If you know of a cheaper place to get similar fabrics, let me know! Fat Quarters, and even decent sized scraps are cool :)
~Colorful fat quarters Different from above, I'm talking about the usual ones you find in any craft store.
~Old unwanted comic books that can be chopped into decoupage fodder.
~Precious Metal Clay  Even a little bit to experiment with.
~Ceramic marking pens  Pebeo Porcelaine (http://www.dickblick.com/products/pebeo-porcelaine-150-paint-markers/?wmcp=google&wmcid=products&wmckw=02948-5211) or similar
~Throw pillow forms/filler
~Patterns from my wist or any fun amigurumi or plushie patterns (knit, crochet or sewn)
~Cardstock enough to make a lamp (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=231484.0). 14+ pieces? Thanks Banga!
~Copyright free bug and critter photos (as in, you took the photo and don't mind if I make a watercolor painting of it) I'm thinking about starting a new "Critters" series of paintings.
~Origami Paper
~Fabric Transfer Printer Paper
~Printable Fabric
~Rotary Cutter
~Shrinky Dink Sheets
~Pins and needles I'll take any size or type!
~Thread of any color At least 100m spools....not the tiny ones out of a drug store sewing kit.

~NEWDoll Arms! At least 4 so I can make myself a Necklace Holder (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=333885.msg3857170#msg3857170)
~NEWTape Measures I need a bunch for a pouch I want to make

Extras

Post by: guacaMolly on February 25, 2011 07:40:41 AM
I claim Opalgryphon for an owl pillow and maybe a little surprise or two! :)

2nd claim /0 sent /0 received

Hiya, I'm Molly! I live in Oklahoma with my hubby (April will be our one year!) in an old 1920's home. We have one fluffy kitty (Arthur), are non-smoking and have no other allergens in our home. I am an office manager by day Mon-Friday (craftster helps me de-stress!!), and an ADD avid crafter the rest of the time. In recent years I love sewing, but also jewelry making, soapmaking, screenprinting (hope to do more in the future) and working with stoneware clay at times.
 
 
Likes/dislikes
My wists and etsy faves are a good indicator of my tastes, everything on there makes me happy just to look at it! I love color, designs and texture. My favorite colors are vivid aqua, turquoise and blue greens, grass, sage and the inside of an avocado green. Also daffodil yellow, Riley Blake Summer Song pinks and melons. I really love the combo of citrus colors together, and pictures of Greece with the blue-green ocean, bright white buildings and cobalt blue roofs.
 
I like nature (owls, birds, trees, water lilies, lotus blossoms), dots, cupcake/sweet themes, Hello Kitty and sweet vintage flower designs. I also really like Victorian, French and Art Nouveau themes.
 
I do NOT like skulls, 80's, dark/morbid themes, super cutesy/granny crafts, animal prints, strong scents (headaches)
 
I like black, white and brown as neutral/accent colors, and when it comes to metals silver or antiqued brass/copper, but please no gold. I am allergic to nickel, so sterling silver, silver plated, surgical steel and nickel free metals are best when it comes to earrings-- everything else doesn't matter on the metal.
 
We are low carb, so please no sugary sweets to tempt me! :)
 
Things in bold I would, like, love you forever! BUT, everything on my list I would be very pleased with. :)

Crafted
 
~Ironing board cover in a fun fabric, standard size-- I don't need padding
~Fabric tags that say The Chartreuse Lily for me to sew into items that I make. *Or* I would be just as pleased with a tute on how to make them with my Print Gocco!
~Yoga pants or skirt, size Medium
~Yoga mat carrying bag
~Handcrafted/stamped notecards/hangtags in any of the themes I like, with or w/o envelopes.
~Needlebook of any kind, but I love this one!
http://www.wists.com/guacaMolly/ca083804edee5d6d013e9765beb96c31
~Huge buttons Especially wooden like these-
 http://www.etsy.com/listing/67020465/gorgeous-mulberry-tree-branch-buttons
~Fitted shirt or tunic in a nature theme, womens size M-L (Pm me for measurements). There are lots of examples on my wists. I would also love a swallow or bird on an upper shoulder, as though it had just swooped over it. I really prefer a girly looking top/tunic over one that looks like a T-shirt, since I would like to wear it on my casual day at the office, and regular T-shirts are too casual.
~A coupon organizer-- mine was cheapy cardboard, and it is falling apart!
~Jewelry stand/organizer for my bedroom. I love the trees like on my wists, but I think they would be difficult to make and expensive to ship! I would be thrilled with anything that would be functional for this, our bedroom is chocolate brown and a very light blue. I mostly wear earrings.
~Hair combs-- metal or any design that you think I would like. I get headaches really easily, and I want to try these to help me hold my thick wavy hair back, away from my face!
~Placemats/table centerpiece (for a small table, 10-11" inches circumference)/napkin rings. Newly married we are definitely still in the acquisition phase, my hubby really likes to decorate for the holidays. Anything springy/Easter, St. Patty's Day, summery/4th of July or year 'round/seasonal in general. We have fall and Christmas covered. :)
~Wallet with room for lots of cards, cash, coins and a checkbook! In fabric from my wists/etsy, or I would be happy to send fabric.
Mine that I love that is looking pretty ragged is kind of like this (don't like this fabric)
http://www.etsy.com/listing/65754996/red-black-and-retro-checkbook-wallet
 
 
Supplies
I would love vintage/secondhand items, and I would be thrilled with an all supplies package.
 
~Photo emulsion for making new screens for screenprinting
~Fabric- Any designer prints, or cute fabric you think I'd like. Really cute designer, I would even be thrilled with scraps for patchwork! Anything else from a fat quarter-ish size on up please. Most wanted: anything from or similar to my wist or etsy favorites. Also cotton 'boy' prints; cars, monsters, something to make boy lunch bags, travel art packs, etc. from.
-Solids: I would love solid canvas, duck cloth, home decor weight, kona cotton or linen in any color.
 ~Sewing books with or without patterns; preferably classic and not dated, or modern like One Yard Wonders or The Bag Making Bible, but I could really use an old school techniques book, too.
~Organza bags in any color
~Dover clip art book, especially with CD included. Please PM me to make sure I don't already have it. :)
~Sewing patterns for bags, wallets, purses, slippers, thread catcher.
~Buttons-- love them, all sizes, shapes and colors, need my collection to grow!
 ~100% wool felt
~Resin instruction- I got a lot of molds for Christmas, any tips/tricks/tools of the trade would be greatly appreciated! I'm really interested in resin work like this etsy seller does:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/UnderGlass?ga_search_query=underglass&ga_search_type=seller_usernames
~Medium to heavy weight iron on interfacing
~Walking foot for Janome Sewist sewing machine
~Bias tape attachment foot for Janome
~Hardware for bags/wristlets: Especially magnetic closures-- standard or hidden. Also keychains, lobster claws, D-rings, purse forms etc.
~Snaps, grommets in any size
~Sew in velcro, any color or size
~Sari silk; ribbon or yarn form
~Jewelry supplies: Ring blanks, bracelet blanks, bobby pins, Toggle closures for bracelets/necklaces, lengths of chain, crimp closures like for using silk ribbon for a pendant, pendant trays, ring bezels with trays, jump rings, wire in any gauge, earring findings-- on these, preferably silver plated or sterling, but oxidized/antiqued that is nickel free is welcome.
~Modge podge
~Diamond glaze
~Emery sand for pincushions
~Leather pieces-- any kind, I'd like to experiment with using it for the soles of slippers

Post by: puzzler on February 25, 2011 02:39:37 PM
I claim GuacaMolly for Handcrafted/stamped notecards/hangtags in any of the themes I like, with or w/o envelopes.

6th claim, 3 sent, 3 outstanding, I received 2 claims.

Hello.  I am puzzler and I live in Connecticut, US.  I like simple and useful things.  I love the idea that something was re-purposed or recycled, so if you can be “green” while crafting something for me- that would be wonderful. Please don't send me anything pink.  I like green/gray/blue colors or black and white combinations.  Any peaceful shades or patterns are OK.  Thank you! :)

Things I would love to get:

CRAFTS:

Something featuring interesting type. I am into typography and would love a  journal or pillow cover (or something else)  with some nice letters or words on it.  I can come up with a word or quote, if you want to try this, but don't know where to start.  A mug with nice looking type design would be great too.  (I already have coasters- thanks Dawl!)

NEW WISH: Big T-shirts (XL - 2XL) in white, blue or gray with black image of a tree like this one http://www.etsy.com/listing/12437609/bare-tree-t-shirt-on-lemon-american (http://www.etsy.com/listing/12437609/bare-tree-t-shirt-on-lemon-american) Or perhaps a question mark or letter "a" few inches tall.  Hm.  Ask me about this or surprise me!

NEW WISH: pajama pants 2XL (i can give you exact measurements) in a solid color or white and green (or white and blue or black and white) stripes or something like it.

Writing journal/altered book.  (mixed papers would be great) Perhaps something with writing prompts or ideas?

Swap journal, where I can keep track of who I am sending to or who is sending things to me would be nice.

Stationery – something modest, simple or inspired by tv shows/books I like (Psych, House, Office, Disc world, etc- I can provide a ton of these).  It doesn't have to be a set either- if you like making cards, but not envelopes- that's great, if your specialty is envelopes- that's nice too.  

Fabric bucket (bucket/bag made of fabric for either my yarn or fabric storage, etc)

zippered bag, something around 5x9 inches made from cotton fabric and with lining.

Post by: mimiw on February 25, 2011 05:06:22 PM
I claim puzzler for some supplies and a snack bag.  Maybe a zipper bag too :)

This is my 6th claim with 2 sent and 3 received.

My name is Mimi and I am a stay at home mom in West Palm Beach, FL.  I love practical, useful items for myself or for my 2 year old son, Sky.  Love nature and nature inspired items.  Favorite colors are green, blue and brown.  I also like red accents.  Favorite things are octopus, birds and trees.  Most of my house is decorated in hand made items so I always love wall art or other decor.  I am not a girly person and don't use much bath & body stuff other than bubble bath and bar soap.  I am also not a fan of country, babyish or animal prints.  Please do not send me anything purple or pink.  I also don't do jewelry or niknaks.


Crafts:

Wall art that says "I'm sew happy" - vinyl, sewn, painted, whatever!

A toddler sized backpack for my son.  You would be my hero if you could do something with trains on it - maybe similar to this one (although I would prefer his name not be on it): http://www.etsy.com/listing/67761835/personalized-train-quilted-toddler?ref=v1_other_1 (http://www.etsy.com/listing/67761835/personalized-train-quilted-toddler?ref=v1_other_1)

T shirts - size medium, or large if they are fitted.  I don't do jrs. shirts.  I like stenciled, embroidered or dyed.  Maybe a shirt with a little bird on the front side?  Or a robot?  Or a tree!! :) 
Here are a few examples of other stuff I like:

http://www.etsy.com/listing/44356593/red-snake-crew-t (http://www.etsy.com/listing/44356593/red-snake-crew-t)

I would love you forever if you made me this shirt in a non-tight/clingy medium or large: http://www.etsy.com/listing/10837611/brave-men-run-in-my-family-adult-large (http://www.etsy.com/listing/10837611/brave-men-run-in-my-family-adult-large)

Artwork for my walls - I like anything nature inspired or funky.  Here is an example of stuff I like:

Pottery - I like funky, different stuff.  Useful containers are always great!  Especially could use a sponge holder for by the kitchen sink!

Fun pajama pants or shorts - size medium

Magazine Holders

Felt Circle Art

Octopus surprise!!  No stuffies though please :)

Pool stuff - embellished towels, candle holders, serving tray, yard art - We spend a LOT of time out by the pool in the summer so stuff for out there is great!

Hooded towel for my 2 year old in blue

Funky wind chime or whimsy collection to hang out by the pool

Hoopla!  Trees, birds, octopus, whatever!  There are a few on my wist that I particularly like.  I really, really, really want these:

I've dabbled in lots of different crafts.  My true love is pottery, but I haven't done that in quite a while now.  I am starting to do paper crafts, but I’ll always be true to my beading!

I claim atsuko for a modified scrappy needle roll (and probably a zippered pouch or two)

3rd claim/0 sent/0 received

My name is Karen and I live in Austin, TX with my teenaged dd (who typically ends up with most of my swap items   ), a huge, goofy lab-mix and a lovely, prissy cat.

I love designs from the 60's and early 70s (think mod & flower power). Also 50's post-modern. I used to have a 1974 VW Thing and I miss it a lot! I also love Asian designs in fabric and artwork.
I prefer clean lines and bold graphics rather than cutesy or fussy prints.

I was born in the year of the Dragon and I just love them! And English Bulldogs (cute, not fierce).  I love anything magical/wonderous including fairies and Alice in Wonderland.  
Also, pretty much any Amy Butler fabric.

Other random things I love: silver jewelry, reading, travel, art, geekery, the periodic table, Scooby-Doo, GLEE!, nature, trees, dandelions, rain, cooking, whimsy. For more info check my wist .

I would love anything from my wist : www.wists.com/luckdragon but especially the things below.  In general, I prefer practical things that can be used (with the exception of small wall art or hoops for
my hoopla wall).  My favorite colors are bolder/earthy tones to 60’s mod.  Blues/greens/tangerine/black/white/deep red (again, examples in my wist).  Please no neon colors or pastels.

REALLY would love anything in highlighted below in  PURPLE

Thank you in advance for picking me!!

Hello, My name is Monica. I live in North Carolina at the beach. I am a happy go lucky girl not to uptight and just love to have fun and enjoy crafts and homemade gifts are wonderful. I have cancer I have to keep saying it as I just know I will kick the shit out of it and win..I am raising my 2 grandkids. It is hard to really do it again but I love being with them and know they are doing great and happy well adjusted kids. I have 2 dogs now as my Buster passed away on the 14th  Cry My heart broke that day. I miss him so much but he had almost 16 years and was never abused like our other 2 that we rescued so he has always had a charmed life.

 I really hate neon, I don't like country looking, I totally dislike granny looking fabric little flowers like gramdma and  Laura Engels looking and OMG the Andy Warhol GAG..don't know why I just cant stand it.

 We cant have anything from an indoor smokers home, you must wash hands good if outdoor smokers as it is the sticky tar stuff not really the stinky smoke that my granddaughter can be around. ALSO, we both have metal issues so must be nickle free at least the earring post and metal that touches my neck...I.E. the chain

I claim Babalina for some hoopla art. :)

4-1-2

Hi! My name is Trish and I live on the coast in New Haven, Connecticut (UNITED STATES) with my wonderful husband and our two silly dogs, (pitbull rescues.) I am about to turn 31, how did that happen?! I feel much younger. I am originally from Texas and don't think I will ever get used to winter. I am also in school to be an Art teacher. Sewing and embroidery are currently my most loved crafts but I also knit, crochet and paint. (And dabble in all kinds of other stuff.)

My favorite color is kelly green, especially paired with browns, khakis and blues. I am not really a fan of bright primary colors paired together, much more into neutrals. Themes I like:

forest animals/foxes
fantasy (dragons especially) My favorite book(s) is A Song of Ice and Fire.
Zombies
classic video games, (Zelda, Gradius, Super Mario Bros are the faves)
Sideshow “Freaks”
dia los de muerte/ sugar skulls
I collect Maneki Neko's (Lucky Cats.)
Rollerskating (non derby but not artistic either)
Artsy Imagery of Classic Nintendo, vintage typewriters, classic vespas, vintage cameras, vintage sewing machines.
I also think maps are also pretty nifty. Especially old maps.
I am a huge fan of Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Lord of the Rings.
pin up girls from the 30's - 40's.


I don't wear jewelry of any kind.
I don't really like floral prints unless they are very modern. (some muted florals for embroidery hoops may be an exception, look at my wists for ideas.)
Don't really like overly bright colors.
I am allergic to cigarette/cigar/marijuana smoke
Also allergic to perfumes/flowery scents/patchouli (most essential oils in soaps and stuff are ok)
Nothing religious please
clothing/aprons etc – Stencils, Screenprints or Applique only please. No iron ons or puffy paint or any of that stuff that tends to not last very long at all.


BIG WISHES = *** but I will love anything you choose to make/send. Thank you for choosing me!!!!!!

Craft Items

I claim padfoot for a supply package including new fabric ( no destash so I'll pm for choices from list) and other supplies



3/0/1  


My name is Teresa.  I live in Ga. with my wonderful hubby of 30 years and our two grown daughters ( who have both returned to the nest to finish their educations).  I have a grown stepson and am Mimi to a 13 year old boy and 7 year old girl.   We share our little homestead with a pet cow, mini donkey ( he's something of a cute bully), three pygmy goats, and six cats.

I use swaps to collect OOAK gifts for my friends and family so my wist reflects quite a variety of tastes.  Please read tags/notes carefully if you choose something wisty for color preferences, sizes, etc.  I am completely okay with you taking something from my wist and making it in your favorite medium rather than the one pictured.  I can't tolerate the smell of smoke or lavender.

Crafts:

Enormous Wish Clothing for an 18" doll like the American Girl dolls.  There are examples on my wist, but I would be thrilled with anything you chose to make.  Accessories like hats and purses would be welcome too.  Luckdragon claimed me for a couple of things!!!, but I desperately want more.  If you choose to claim me for this, pm me so we can discuss what's already being made.  Thanks!

 Huge Wish   A book safe made from one of the classics ( maybe a damaged one or one of those really cheap ones you can get now)

handmade thank you cards in any of these themes:  bees, bugs, crayons, cute cats, cute mushrooms
colorful polka dots and/or stripes

bee themed hanging plastic bag holder (prefer pretty/realistic print to cute)

cat crinkle sack covered in one of these themes:  skulls ( sugar skulls or real looking ones), sushi, pirates, Arsenal soccer, or just black and white

Mega Huge Wish!Anything Arsenal themed... really, anything!

yoga pants in women's size 2.  Any color, any style

beaded tree sculpture ( not jewelry) in amber/orange/brown (small, even tiny is fine)

cat tent that looks "piratey"

BIG WISH black scoodie in fleece with hood part lined in something silky so my hair won't get crazy.  I would want silky inside black as well

sz. 2 blue and white polka dot swirly skirt ( for a 5' tall woman) ( simple is great, doesn't need to be super swirly, just have a bit of swish in it)

sz. 51/2 mukluks with fake leather soles ( looking for that speed knitter again)


Big Wish a set of fabric coasters in cranberry, dark green, and possibly cream ( simple is best)

An altered journal in a world geography theme.  I know almost nothing on the subject and feel that it's time to do something about that.  I intend to teach myself and since its such an extensive subject, it would need to be a kind of large journal/notebook.

A little sock monkey fan pull.  I've never seen one but would love to have one for my daughter.  I'm assuming it would ceramic or maybe poly clay? 

A large, simple duffle bag with a zipper.  Even though the size should be large, I only want a very simple one.  Pockets are not necessary if you'd rather skip them.  Would love a medium to heavy weight fabric in a pretty blue print ( polka dots would be a plus).  Would love adjustable straps but if you don't want to mess with them, just make the straps a little shorter than normal. 


supplies:

Thread Heaven
silk embroidery floss ( I realize this is expensive so a teeny little package would be great!)
one of those needlework magnifiers that hang around the neck ( used is great)
wood-look plastic embroidery hoops, especially ovals
wool felt ( scraps are fine, its for a penny rug) (I really want wool felt, not felted wool.. does that make sense?)
any Japanese craft book ( except crochet)
bias tape makers
Enormous Wish  any knitting or weaving loom ( any size, made of anything) ( I now have the small oval knifty knitter that makes socks so any others)
sublime stitching transfers for hand embroidery ( monkey love, zombies, or vital organs) ( It's okay if you've used a couple of the patterns and just send me what you didn't use from the package)
transfer pens
all purpose thread ( new please) (no black, white, blue, green or pink)
buttons in greens and fall colors only
stabilizer for embroidery projects
any mod podge or your favorite fixatives and/or sealants
any supplies to help me get started with quilling or resin casting





extras:

vintage children's books
Bunny Suicide anything
cat toys/treats
gluten free treats ( people treats, not cat   :))

Thank you so much for claiming me!

I claim gamemom42 for 18” American Girl doll clothes!

2/0/0

I live in New England (USA) in an old house (1771) in the country with my two teen-aged sons and two cats.  It's a small house so I generally prefer things that are functional or useful as well as decorative, and smaller is usually better than larger.  I enjoy vintage, primitive, folk art, organic (as in nature/natural), and whimsical.

I love found or altered objects so re-using, recycling, and re-purposing are all high on my list of good things!  Tramp art (http://www.amesgallery.com/FolkArtPages/Tramp.html) is also something I’m fond of.   I like things that combine mechanical gadgets, Victoriana and natural history as in steampunkery.  Favored colors are earth-, sea-, or general nature-tones (sea glass colors, jewel tones and milk paint colors), not so much the neons and pastels.  I love designs that include birds, animals, insects, trees, rocks…realistic rather than cutesy.  Steam trains and retro-50s rocket ships & science fiction are also fun (Journey to the Mushroom Planet sort of thing).

I work in a high school library and seem to be a life-long student myself so journals, writing supplies, note cards and reading or book-related projects are all possibilities.  I love polymer clay things – especially the new metallic type I’ve seen used for steampunk charms.

Don’t care for the smell of smoke.  No sheep wool or lanolin ingredients in anything that would be worn or put on my skin (like lotions or soaps); wool for embroidery or crafting is OK.  Food allergies below under "extras."

    * Crafts

      -Anything from or inspired by my wist http://www.wists.com/muddy21/all/?tag2=&offset=0&searchme= (http://www.wists.com/muddy21/all/?tag2=&offset=0&searchme=)

8/0/5

CLAIM/ENROUTE-sent/RECEIVED

Hi, I'm Roxanne!  My daughter Lana is now in first grade and is loving it.  She is our pride and joy.  Lana has grown up on Craftster love and has received so many wonderful and thoughtfully made presents her whole life.  So THANK YOU to all of you!!   I have a hubby who helps me craft when he can.  He’s the one who runs off to the craft store to buy a craft supply I missed or off to the PO to mail my packages.  I'm originally from Hawaii, so even though I live in Maryland now I'm a local girl at heart! I've dabbled in lots of different crafts.  My true love is pottery, but I haven't done that in quite a while now.  I am starting to do paper crafts, but I’ll always be true to my beading!

Please nothing made with vinyl.  No wist picks please.  I really need to redo mine as I've received much from it already.

BIG WISHES ARE IN BOLD, but everything is wanted and will be loved.

I claim atsuko for handknit socks for her mom (size 9)

This is my 2nd claim with 1 sent and 0 received.

My name is Karrie and I live in Canada.  I've been with hubby for 13 yrs and we have 2 little ones (who are growing up so! fast)  Daughter is 5 and son is 3.  I work at home making wedding stationery, so I get to craft every day!  I've recently fallen BACk in love with sewing and knitting.  

My tastes are usually clean and simple - classic, timeless - but I really like things that are just stinkin' cute, too!  I love all colors, but my favorites tend to be a deep chocolate brown, bright turquoise, hot pink and bright turquoise green.  Having said that, I mostly wear black and charcoal.    I'm a walking contradiction!  But I'm not too fond of neon at all...  I love cute owls, funky trees and cool mod patterns.  Really don't like floral prints unless they are mod.  I also like eye-catching geometric patterns, too - and really like dark solids with bright pops of color.

I have changed everything over from my wists to Pinterest.com, you'll get a good idea of things I like in there...  I've dedicated a whole board to fabrics that catch my eye...

I am allergic to cats and angora - they both make me red, and itchy with crazy red, watery eyes!  Not fun.  


So on to my list!

Sewn
 -> Insulated lunch bags, sandwich bags, etc in a theme (looking for Cat in the Hat or Construction Vehicles for my son, looking for anything uber-Girlie for my daugther, anything masculine for the hubby, and anything mod for myself)

 -> Any type of skirt for myself - PM me for measurements, including length.

 -> Any type of skirt or dress for my daughter - children's size 6.  The more girlie, the better!

 ->  I would love some owl jammy pants - brown background with bright, cute owls preferable.  PM me for size.

 ->  I'd love a mod laptop sleeve - one that's really plump.  Prefer chocolate and pink -- I've got a huge laptop, so PM me for measurements!

 ->  A tabletop ironing pad


Stencil or Appliqué
 -> Any t-shirt like Sheldon wears in Big Bang Theory would be awesome!  Ladies' FITTED Size L.

 ->  Boy's size 3 shirt with a mighty machine (any kind of construction vehicle) on it for my son.

 ->  Girl's size 6 shirt with anything girly for my daughter (flowers, etc...)


Jewelry
 -> Another tree of life pendant with green beads, this time for my mom!  She absolutely adores mine (thanks atsuko!)

 -> A loaded charm/bead bracelet like this one (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=373448.0), but in purples & greens, or pinks & greens.  Some matching drop earrings (not too long only about 1") would be cool, too!


Supplies

 -> I would love yarns - kettle dyed or kool-aid dyed.  The color combinations look so fun!  

 ->  I would love any fabric like these ones (http://pinterest.com/whats_her_name/fabrics/) - many of my "to do" projects need 2 yards, but fat quarters are awesome too!

 ->  Any vintage dress pattern from 50's, 60's or 70's - preferably in Ladies' Size 10-12, and sizes 8-10!!

 ->  Heavyweight Iron-on interfacing - I am always running out

 ->  Any of these craft books (http://pinterest.com/whats_her_name/craft-books/)

 ->  Oliver + S patterns - girls' size 6, boys' size 4 --> I do have a few already, so you might want to PM me to find out which ones I've got

 ->  Old shaker knit sweaters in white, women's size L, regular neckline - I have a recon project for these!!

 ->  A soft, fine wool in a charcoal or a cocoa color to make a coat (I would need 3 yards, so if there's a big sale, I would love you forever!)

 ->  Insulated batting for making potholders (can't get that here either)

 ->  Decorative zipper pulls of all kinds (my selection here really sucks)

 ->  Any Amy Butler bag pattern (except the weekender bag - I've already got that one)



Thanks so much for claiming me!
