Please bookmark this thread  post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything also, please bookmark the discussion and the gallery threads!

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 68!!
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 67.

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. I.E. 4/0/1 = 4 claims-1 in transit-1 received by partner

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 FIFTEEN MED 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!If not I will skip you and or remove your claim!!  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 UP TO 3 wishes at one time as per the orgs discression, 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. HOWEVER the orgs reserve the right to tell you that you may only claim one or two items at a time if you have had issues in the past with shipping late!!!!


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***



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, ETSY etc

Sending/Communicating/Feedback:
YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS (14 days from the time you claim)TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR.This starts from the day you claim must be out the door BY the 14th day!
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 $20-30usd worth of store bought items )
Feedback will be given as soon as you have sent - received -posted pics but will be up to 2 weeks after the swap closed if you do not post pics and this will be noted and you might not get allowed back in the next round if you cant do this! Please take pics before you ship! This is a rule not an option!!!

IF YOU CLAIM FOR A COTTON HAT, THEN DO NOT SEND A WOOL ONE OR YOU WILL HAVE TO SEND 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( on the 7th day) 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 DO NOT JOIN THIS SWAP!!!.FEEDBACK WILL NOT BE GIVEN UNTIL YOUR PACKAGES HAVE BEEN SENT AND YOU RECEIVE AND POST PICS OR  2 weeks AFTER the swap ends as per the rules[/color]

BABALINA58 will be our organizer, in charge of your claims, Thread update and approval feedback.
LINDYV321 will be or co Organizer in charge of the gallery :) and to make sure things run smooth and just be her wonderful self :) THANK YOU LINDY FOR BEING SO WONDERFUL!

Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap round 68 open
Post by: babalina58 on February 25, 2011 09:04:09 PM
FIRST UP THIS MONTH IS THE WONDERFUL whats_her_name

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, 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 - 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

 ->  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!

       Hello, I am Monica I live inthe USA in North Carolina on the last bank of the outer banks. I am easy going and love a lot of things..Look at my wists I love fabric and fun but in the styles in my wist really. I am raising my 2 grandkids, we have now 3 wild dogs. A French Bulldog Ralphie, and a Boston Terrier Bella. We are into the outdoors, fish hunt etc. I ride a motorcycle and drive a fast car when not in kid mode :) We love pirates, Sugar skulls and I am a total preppy really. I hate crew neck tees like hanes men styles. I only ware v neck or scoop neck tees. Love them. I do not ware dark colors at all. I am a pink, yellow, seafoam, light blue, girl

  We have a child in the house with hard core allergies and asthma she cant be around cig. smoke at all..If you smoke in the house please pass on claiming us. If you are an outdoor smoker then must wash hands well as the tar stuff is what she really cant be around.
We cant have anything that is Kelly green ( like a pillow, tee that sort of thing.) it is a weird trigger color for my grandson who has autism.it is fine as an accent but not as a color for something really...

Post by: jemimah on February 28, 2011 09:52:54 PM
I claim babalina58 for a hoop of some sort :)  I'll try to make it pretty ;)

1/0/0

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 tend to like things that are plainish and textured rather than very patterned. Some styles I particularly like are mid-century modern, Scandinavian, Japanese (but not kawaii). I usually like artsy-fartsy rather than cutesy :)

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. :) 
- I have been wisting up a storm, and have tried to make my tags more helpful too!!

* 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 (http://wists.com/jemimah/organisation) – box, purse, organiser, etc. – always welcome
* protective folder to store artwork in – A4 or A3 would be great


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 tea cosy or coffee plunger cosy – sewn (stencilled/appliqué/embroidered/whatever), rather than knitted. Simple, plain style great. Made from recycled felted wool would be cool too. I can send measurements. Themes:- for the tea cosy, “Cake or Death?” (Eddie Izzard quote); NEWDalek (I dream of one with a dalek saying ‘Insulate!’ in fact I might just have to make this myself :D); some sort of Star Trek or Dr Who theme
* 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 (http://wists.com/jemimah/organisation) (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 (http://wists.com/jemimah/book_cover) – to fit spiral-bound A3, A4, or A5, whichever size you feel like making.
* full apron – fun vintage-y style, or plain, durable fabric
* sewing ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/sewing)


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!)
* 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 ...
* knitted slouchy hat – chartreuse, rich or dull red (not too orange-y or dark please), dull denim blue, 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=) – there are some smaller things like fingerless mitts in there
* wisty things made of felt or felted wool (http://wists.com/jemimah/felt)


PAPER RELATED
* 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
* stationery ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/stationery)


OTHER CRAFTS
* handmade ceramic item, esp. in celadon green (but any colours are good) ceramic ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/ceramics)
* 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, natural coloured linen, nice fat quarters (just smallish pieces of fabric are fine; no bulk fabric – I’d love it, but it may bankrupt you to mail it) - there’s lots of fabric I like in my wist.
* Noro yarn, other silk/luxury yarn, artisan 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 eco felt available here (I have stacks of ordinary synthetic felt already though)
* bamboo DPNs (I have quite a few sizes in metal, but no bamboo)
* 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, grosgrain
* 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)

Phew!! I hope I've got enough on my list! :D

:) :) 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 a coffee plunger cosy and a shawl pin  :)

1/0/0

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 named Arthur. 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! My favorite colors are vivid aqua, turquoise and blue greens, grass, sage and the inside of an avocado green. Also daffodil and saffron yellow and pink grapefruit. 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, and thank you for claiming me. :)

 
Crafted
 
~ Hoopla/wall art that is owl themed. My mom opened a shop called Owl Make It--- it needs lots of owly love!
 
~Diochroic glass earrings or pendants-- my mom loves the stuff (especially purples, greens, blues), and I would love a pair of stud earrings
 
~Thread catcher/pincushion combo
 
~Camera bag/pouch. I got a really nice digi camera for my birthday, and I keep meaning to make something nice and protective to carry it in! PM me for measurements. Maybe something like this?
http://ayumills.blogspot.com/2008/04/how-to-make-super-simple-camera-case.html
 
~Ironing board cover in a fun fabric, standard size-- I don't need padding, just something to cover my interfacing infested one instead of the towel that is currently fused to it.

~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

~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 be happy with vintage/secondhand items in good shape, 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
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170485532741&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT
 
~Bias tape attachment foot for Janome
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150443013804&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT
 
~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.

~Diamond glaze

guacaMolly, I'm going to claim you for that adorable little letter needle book & a few supplies!

1/0/0

My name is Terra. I am a 38 years old, married for 15 years and I have two kids, DS 13 & DD 10.  I live in the Bay Area, California, USA. I love pink, turquoise, purple & brown, cupcakes, Metallica, The Cure,Moby,  iguanas, rats, hedgehogs, veggies, camping, crocheting, sewing, scrapbooking & papercrafts (I was on an scrapbook design team for quite sometime) & Japanese inspired crafts.

I prefer functional items as I am trying to live more simply and cut down on stuff or clutter. We use all cloth towels, napkins, reusable bags, lunch wraps, ect...  I have a dog, a cat, rats, a frog & a goldfish.

The whole family loves video games, especially old school classic games.
We don't like country, floral, romantic, lacey, old lady. ;)

I claim SMLounsbury for some logo stuff and some extras.  I'll PM you for more details!!

1/0/0

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 (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!

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 - thanks babalina58!


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=374421.0), but in purples & greens, or pinks & greens, or with a Ravenclaw theme (Harry Potter).  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://www.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://www.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) - thanks again, babalina58!

 ->  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!

I'll claim whats_her_name for a Tree of Life Pendant.

First claim this round / 0 sent / 0 received


About Me
33 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats.
  • My favorite colors are jewel tones (like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber) or earth tones (like greens/browns together).
  • My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy.
  • My favorite colors for shirts/clothes are browns, greens, purples, and both heather and charcoal greys.
  • I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together
  • I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.)
  • My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes.
  • My favorite flower is the Daffodil.
  • My favorite movie is Back to the Future

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.

 -- 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.  I could really use a larger, overnight bag of some sort!!

 -- 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 and can send measurements!


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.


 -- Knit or Crochet Wist Item - You can find crochet items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/crochet) and knit items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/crochet).

Other
NEW  ;D ;D -- Chibi Marty or Doc BttF Plush. Probably bigger than a medium, but I want to list it anyway. Craftster member 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.) It's getting warm here in Florida - time for some new tees!!

 -- ;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!!

 --  Ceramic/pottery tea mug, oversized mug, or cereal bowl 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.

NEW -- Tree painting like this (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/e687240922944cc989e58b3ea8cd1b33?offset=0) but, I'd prefer it to be in autumn or spring colors.

NEW --Natural Preserves I'd like some kind of natural fruit preserve/jelly/jam/marmalade. Organic would be awesome. Definitely NOTHING with any artificial sweetener in it since I'm severely allergic. Cherry, grape, orange, apple, etc. - fruity goodness.

 -- 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!
Shortcuts: Crochet items (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/crochet), url=http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/knitting[/b][/url]knit items here[/b][/url]


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, rondelles 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)
 -examples... Chrome Diopside rondelles or....Songea Sapphire (yellows/orange in color) or... Tundra Sapphire (autumn colors) etc!!

  -- 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.

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

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

I claim Dawl for a needlebook and a wisty surprise.


1/0/0


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 I just turned 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!!!!!!

Claim #2 / 0 sent / 0 received


About Me
33 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats.
  • My favorite colors are jewel tones (like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber) or earth tones (like greens/browns together).
  • My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy.
  • My favorite colors for shirts/clothes are browns, greens, purples, and both heather and charcoal greys.
  • I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together

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. thanks J_Kieviet!

   -- 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.  I could really use a larger, overnight-type bag of some sort!!

 -- 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 and can send measurements!

NEW -- Kitchenaid Mixer Cover
Mine is the Classic (seen here (http://www.amazon.com/KitchenAid-K45SS-Classic-275-Watt-2-Quart/dp/B00004SGFW)) and I have a few examples of covers I like here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/mixer).

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!)

NEW --Hobbes Plush Ok, I just love Calvin and Hobbes and this plush (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374733.0) is awesome. (Free pattern here (http://sukigirl74.blogspot.com/2011/03/free-hobbes-crochet-pattern.html)!)

 -- 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.

NEW --Tree Arm Warmers I think these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/59384324/arm-warmers-with-embroidered-tree-design) are really cool. The colors, the tree pattern - just all of it. Really neat!

 -- Knit or Crochet Wist Item - You can find crochet items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/crochet) and 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 member 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.) It's getting warm here in Florida - time for some new tees!!

 -- ;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!!

 --  Ceramic/pottery tea mug, oversized mug, or cereal bowl 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.)

NEW --Embroidered PhoenixFire Designs Logo Shirt If anyone has a computerized embroidery machine where you can take a digital image and put it on a shirt, I would LOVE to get a ladies fitted polo or cute, fitted V-neck tee with my PFD logo (http://phoenixfiredesigns.com/stuff/phoenixfire-logo-embroider1a.png). That would rock. (Maybe on navy or grey or something that would make the color pop.)

 --  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.

NEW -- Tree painting like this (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/e687240922944cc989e58b3ea8cd1b33?offset=0) but, I'd prefer it to be in autumn or spring colors.

NEW --Natural Preserves I'd like some kind of natural fruit preserve/jelly/jam/marmalade. Organic would be awesome. Definitely NOTHING with any artificial sweetener in it since I'm severely allergic. Cherry, grape, orange, apple, etc. - fruity goodness!

NEW -- Red Fox Art I think this hoop (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/38ef7f092560c014d7e1b1e836edb6dd?offset=0) is super cute and I love this panting (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b9e3fd13aef04405f82601aaa6a7e64f?offset=0) too. I'm just a fan of red foxes.

NEW -- Daffodils - As we're approaching Spring, it always makes me think of my favorite flower, the daffodil. They don't grow here in Florida so I've got some wisted daffodil items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/daffodil) to help usher in Spring.

NEW --Daffodil Spoon Ring Yes, I already listed daffodils in general but I love this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/64944473/silver-spoon-ring-daffodil). I wear a size 6 on four fingers. I think this is just really cool.

NEW --Embroidered Shirt I really like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=373950.0) idea. Doesn't have to be exact but I think that's a great place to start. Fitted shirt only please, size small if Misses or medium if Jr's cut. Jewel tones, browns, greys, etc. Maybe flowers, trees, branches, etc.? Front back, both - I just like this idea a lot.

NEW --Small Cards I could use some small cards (very petite since I use very small 00 size envelopes to ship!) to include with swaps and items I send out. The themes I like are above. I like writing out a little about the item when I send but the standard sizes don't fit in my envelopes!

 -- 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!

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, rondelles 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)
 (examples... Chrome Diopside rondelles or....Songea Sapphire (yellows/orange in color) or... Tundra Sapphire (autumn colors) etc, etc, etc!!)

  -- 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.

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

NEW --Epson Inkjet Ink Yes, odd request but I'm always needing to print things for crafts and I never have ink! There's only so much I can print at work. ;) Epson Stylus Photo R340 uses T048120 black and T048920 color ink.

NEW --Postcard Stamp I think this idea (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/4a36da69c3556b0d495149af27d5e34f?offset=0) is super fun!

NEW --Earring Findings I could use some fancier sterling and/or gold (plate/vermeil) ones, especially chandelier style like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/61443403/2-pcs-24k-vermeil-chandelier-21-x-13-x) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/51503966/4-pcs-bali-925-silver-chandelier-earring) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/57389629/2-pcs-bali-24k-vermeil-earwire-with) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/58632469/2-pcs-large-sterling-silver-925-hoop) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/58632463/4-fancy-bali-925-sterling-silver?ref=v1_other_1), etc.

NEW --Shirt dye kit I love gradient dyed shirts and various types of tie dye but I've never done it myself. Maybe some sort of kit to try it? I found this one (http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?pageName=search&flag=true&PRODID=xprd1130877) as an example, but I'm sure there's more out there. Something that has everything I need to try it would be great since I don't know where to start.

NEW --Tackle Box(es)/Craft Storage Box I store my beads in them. Ones with dividers that can move and be resized are the best. I also like something like this (http://www.amazon.com/Plano-3650-Size-Tackle-Box/dp/B000E3FKTE) or this (http://www.amazon.com/Multi-Craft-System-Avocado-Purple-Handle/dp/B001170INU) that hold tools and other things in addition. I craft on my living room couch so I'm always taking things out and putting them away. It's a pain. Some sort of easily carted box would be very helpful. (Maybe something like this is available at a craft store with a 40/50% off coupon..? Oh, like this (http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?pageName=search&flag=true&PRODID=prd62102) maybe?)

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: mimiw on March 02, 2011 06:03:58 PM
I claim phoenixfiredesigns for cabled fingerless gloves.

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.   Really, I adore those 3 things so if you send something with any of those themes, chances are I will really like it.  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.  I am not huge on floral scents or anything too ruffle-y or frilly.  Also don't like scary themed items or religious items.


Crafts:

THIS (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5351454053/in/photostream/) with all different buttons rather than all the same.  Love it!!!!!!!

This quote (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=261832.msg2934980#msg2934980) done either similar to this or in your own special way!

Love this bird art! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50725941/caribbean-blue-and-white-bird-silhouette)  Doesn't need to be out of wood, any medium is great!

8x10 black and white artwork of any utensils to hang in my kitchen.  A big spoon or fork would be great - or a spork!!

Button tree!! (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368904.0) Doesn't have to be just like this but something similar would be awesome!

Owl Pillow (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369019.msg4359794#msg4359794) but in green or blue instead of purple

A fun ring holder to hold my wedding ring that sits on my bathroom counter since I never wear it :)

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

Coiled fabric bowl - blues, greens, browns, reds or turquiose

How cute is THIS?!? (http://www.flickr.com/photos/keykalou/5401977707/)

Curtain Tie Backs similar to these (in red or brown) (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366649.0)

*Warning - another huge wish!!* Something similar to THIS (http://www.etsy.com/listing/64144509/ready-to-ship-large-handmade-and-hand) designed to hang on the wall

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 (http://www.etsy.com/listing/67761835/personalized-train-quilted-toddler?ref=v1_other_1) (although I would prefer his name not be on it):

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!! :)

Felted pebbles like these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/62532976/felted-pebble-gift-set-in-blue-tones) for the bottom of a glass vase

Pottery - I like funky, different stuff.  Useful containers are always great!  Especially could use a sponge holder for by the kitchen sink like this. (http://www.etsy.com/listing/62788116/sponge-holder-green-blue-teal-wheel)

Thomas the Train standard pillowcase for my son

Handmade Christmas ornaments -  nothing religious please

I claim mimiw for "I'm Sew Happy" wall art

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 14 year old boy and 8 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 and muddy21 have 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, and old encyclopedia, or a book of poetry( 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 ( it's for someone who is only 5 ft. tall)


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   Smiley)

Thank you so much for claiming me!

Hi, my name is Erin. I am a stay at home grad student mom in the Seattle, WA area. I am gluten and dairy free. I love to cook and bake. I love the outdoors, nature, gardening and crafting. I sew, pretend to knit sometimes, and dabble with different crafts. I like nature inspired items. I don't like plastic stuff.
My favorite colors are green, blue, and red. Purple is okay, but please do not send me anything that pink is the central color, or pastels, or gold. I dont like flashy things. I love chartruese, I like dark lime green, eggplant, dark turquoise, any of those colors with brown is great. I love wall art and I love trees and rainbows together (or seperate is fine too)
My favorite scents are blueberry, food scents, lemongrass and pink sugar. I do not like patchoulli, musky scents, sandlewood,

Post by: frosty772 on March 03, 2011 08:56:45 AM
I will claim maurer for a travel pillow and perhaps some other items too!!

This is my first claim
Nothing sent
Nothing received

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!!

Mediums (more can be found in my list  ;D)
~~Jewelry (chokers, bracelets, earrings but please no nickel posts)
~~Snood in a 40s style (prefer a crochet or knitted tie versus elastic (stays on better)
~~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  I am in need of a large school bag/tote!!  The strap on mine is starting to come loose.
~~Handwarmers like the ones offered at Hot Topic.com. Victorian Goth ones would be perfect.
~~Crazy Quilted Purse.  Or any purse made by you!! 
~~Regency or Victorian era Reticule
~~Petticoat (cotton or cotton blend please) either knee or ankle length with some fullness to it as I like poufy skirts !! I actually wear these a lot!! (Im 5'5 email for length) (received one from farmgirljane and would love more!!)
~~I would love some soft wool socks!!  Size 7 feet
~~I have a weird obsession with knitted cuffs!! I love them!!  Chocolate brown, red, white, mustard yellow.

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.


SEWN

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

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

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

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

I would love some embroidered handkerchiefs. Monogrammed with my initials would be nice too!!

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

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

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.

Hand crafted candles are great too. Prefer either fruit and or spice scented ones or lavender (only floral scented one I like).  Im also interested in the scented candle chunks that you can melt and scent your house with.  I have received some but always appreciate more!!

Whimsey jar are really fun!!

Im loving the moon jars!!  Would love to have one!!

Im looking for a serving tray that I can bring snacks from the kitchen to the living room.  Asian or Victorian influence a real plus.  Ive seen some nice ones made from frames (glass removed)

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

Shower curtain.  Victorian style please!!

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

Books that teach drawing as well as an art kit of some kind put together would be great.  My 12 year old loves to draw comic books!!

Handcrafted Jewelry with Victorian influence

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

Im looking for a table runner for our new table we recently purchased.  Looking for something, of course Victorian style as well.  Measurements can and will be provided.  Want something rich looking but affordable to make!!  Also looking for new fabric dinner napkins (18").
 
~~Supplies~~

Sewing items~~ Anything related to sewing is welcome!!  Trims, fabric, thread ect.(Gently used too)
Im also interested in any older sewing supplies as well from antiques stores and such (I have a tracing wheel i bought for $4 so they can be affordable).  Patterns (Burda Mag, Modern, Historic and Historic inspired too)!!  I need envelopes with a size 14 & 16 included in the envelope for dresses and tops and a 16 for skirts.  Thanks!!
Vogue~~ .. .2884...2968...1239 ... 8352...8003,,,v1178,,,v1172
Simplicity~~
McCalls~~

Im especially trying to find a Simplicity Jumper Pattern from 1948 pattern is on my wist list (36" bust if possible)

Fabric Mystery Bundle from Fabricmart.com  http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com/xcart/804051-10-yard-Mystery-Fabric-Bundle-Assortment.html

New or Unwanted Issues of Threads ( I have all of 2003 2006-2008 Though I dont have issues 137 or 138, 140  !!!) probably best to check with me on numbers!! and Burda World of Fashion Magazine !! (I have a few ...1/06** 7/03**4/05** 3/08**)  (used is fine) Knipmode, Ottobre, Patrones, La Mode

Purse supplies of all sorts (handles, magnetic snaps, rings ect).  Silver Victorian clasps would be great too (can be found at Hancocks).  I desperately need some magnetic snaps!!

Scrapbooking items  (trims, paper, stickers anything!!).  Im also looking for some things like brads, ribbons, fancy paper, scissors.  Im also looking for corner punchers, rulers for making fancy torn edges and hole punchers (I have a heart one).  Also plain colored or white blank greeting type cards would be wonderful!! Good for now!!

Emphemra

Costume jewelry or broken pieces that can be recycled into new jewelry

I really really need some cub/boy scout related scrapbooking items such as paper, stickers ect!!!!

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

I claim padfoot for a wisty surprise.

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 I just turned 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.

1st claim/0 sent/0 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 lindyv321 for a surprise package ;)

2/0/0

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 tend to like things that are plainish and textured rather than very patterned. Some styles I particularly like are mid-century modern, Scandinavian, Japanese (but not kawaii). I usually like artsy-fartsy rather than cutesy :)

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. :) 
- I have been wisting up a storm, and have tried to make my tags more helpful too!!

* 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 (http://wists.com/jemimah/organisation) – box, purse, organiser, etc. – always welcome
* protective folder to store artwork in – A4 or A3 would be great


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 tea cosy or coffee plunger cosy – sewn (stencilled/appliqué/embroidered/whatever), rather than knitted. Simple, plain style great. Made from recycled felted wool would be cool too. I can send measurements. Themes:- for the tea cosy, “Cake or Death?” (Eddie Izzard quote); NEWDalek (I dream of one with a dalek saying ‘Insulate!’ in fact I might just have to make this myself :D); some sort of Star Trek or Dr Who theme
* 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 (http://wists.com/jemimah/organisation) (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 (http://wists.com/jemimah/book_cover) – to fit spiral-bound A3, A4, or A5, whichever size you feel like making.
* full apron – fun vintage-y style, or plain, durable fabric
* sewing ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/sewing)


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!)
* 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 ...
* knitted slouchy hat – chartreuse, rich or dull red (not too orange-y or dark please), dull denim blue, 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=) – there are some smaller things like fingerless mitts in there
* wisty things made of felt or felted wool (http://wists.com/jemimah/felt)


PAPER RELATED
* 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
* stationery ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/stationery)


OTHER CRAFTS
* handmade ceramic item, esp. in celadon green (but any colours are good) ceramic ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/ceramics)
* 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, natural coloured linen, nice fat quarters (just smallish pieces of fabric are fine; no bulk fabric – I’d love it, but it may bankrupt you to mail it) - there’s lots of fabric I like in my wist.
* Noro yarn, other silk/luxury yarn, artisan 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 eco felt available here (I have stacks of ordinary synthetic felt already though)
* bamboo DPNs (I have quite a few sizes in metal, but no bamboo)
* 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, grosgrain
* 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  :)

Post by: Trish Fantastic on March 04, 2011 07:03:45 PM
I claim Sarad for an embroidery hoopla based on her likes.

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 I just turned 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

A Wisty Surprise!
*** A Coupon organizer with a zippered pouches that can hold coins (my store uses fake coins for special deals.) If it matters, I am a vegan, so no steak section
***Embroidery Hoop project bag- something like this idea although this is not in stone.
 https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=166083;sa=showImages I just want to be able to carry a hoop or two and some needles, thread and scissors.
***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

-A thread catcher to go by my sewing machine.
***handmade soap!!!! lemongrass is my favorite but I like all kinds of stuff.(just no patchouli)
-Handmade sugar scrub
***I am in DIRE need of two lunch bags. Basically they need to be able to hold a large tupperware container FLAT as well as a thermos or large plastic bottle with handles/preferably with an adjustable long strap. One of the in any of my themes for me, the other one I would like to say "Bag of Holding" on it or something else Dungeons and Dragons related. If you have another clever idea please message me. (can be two claims)
-reusable sandwich wraps/bags/snack bags – preferably made with nylon or PEVA. Please no oil cloth on the inside.
***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)
-dog poop bag holder to connect to leash (2 please)
-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!
-Texas themed embroidery hoop.
-A Big Cushy dog bed, (or a cover that I can stuff an old blanket into)
***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.
***Dungeons and Dragons related stuff ( ESPECIALLY if you are into terrain making, we would love D&D scaled trees, fences, buildings, basically anything to scale and fantasy related (or just basic outdoor scenery like model train scenery.)

Would be FABULOUS if it was larger and the inside was lined with felt for rolling dice!
***D20 cufflinks. Would LOVE some that are cast in a metal, but would also love some actual dice (D20's only) that are made into cufflinks.
***A soft case/sleeve for my Iphone 4 that is fun and in one of my themes.

I claim thedish for handmade soap and some snack bags.

This is my 2nd 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.   Really, I adore those 3 things so if you send something with any of those themes, chances are I will really like it.  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.  I am not huge on floral scents or anything too ruffle-y or frilly.  Also don't like scary themed items or religious items.


Crafts:

THIS (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5351454053/in/photostream/) with all different buttons rather than all the same.  Love it!!!!!!!

This quote (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=261832.msg2934980#msg2934980) done either similar to this or in your own special way!

Love this bird art! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50725941/caribbean-blue-and-white-bird-silhouette)  Doesn't need to be out of wood, any medium is great!

8x10 black and white artwork of any utensils to hang in my kitchen.  A big spoon or fork would be great - or a spork!!

Button tree!! (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368904.0) Doesn't have to be just like this but something similar would be awesome!

Owl Pillow (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369019.msg4359794#msg4359794) but in green or blue instead of purple

Maurer for some table toppers and maybe a few other items!! (this is going to be my second claim to her so its gonna be a filled box lol)

This is my second claim
Nothing sent
Nothing received

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!!

Mediums (more can be found in my list  Grin)
~~Jewelry (chokers, bracelets, earrings but please no nickel posts)
~~Snood in a 40s style (prefer a crochet or knitted tie versus elastic (stays on better)
~~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  I am in need of a large school bag/tote!!  The strap on mine is starting to come loose.
~~Handwarmers like the ones offered at Hot Topic.com. Victorian Goth ones would be perfect.
~~Crazy Quilted Purse.  Or any purse made by you!!
~~Regency or Victorian era Reticule
~~Petticoat (cotton or cotton blend please) either knee or ankle length with some fullness to it as I like poufy skirts !! I actually wear these a lot!! (Im 5'5 email for length) (received one from farmgirljane and would love more!!)
~~I would love some soft wool socks!!  Size 7 feet
~~I have a weird obsession with knitted cuffs!! I love them!!  Chocolate brown, red, white, mustard yellow.

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.


SEWN

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

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

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

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

I would love some embroidered handkerchiefs. Monogrammed with my initials would be nice too!!

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

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

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.

Hand crafted candles are great too. Prefer either fruit and or spice scented ones or lavender (only floral scented one I like).  Im also interested in the scented candle chunks that you can melt and scent your house with.  I have received some but always appreciate more!!

Whimsey jar are really fun!!

Im loving the moon jars!!  Would love to have one!!

Im looking for a serving tray that I can bring snacks from the kitchen to the living room.  Asian or Victorian influence a real plus.  Ive seen some nice ones made from frames (glass removed)

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

Shower curtain.  Victorian style please!!

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

Books that teach drawing as well as an art kit of some kind put together would be great.  My 12 year old loves to draw comic books!!

Handcrafted Jewelry with Victorian influence

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

Im looking for a table runner for our new table we recently purchased.  Looking for something, of course Victorian style as well.  Measurements can and will be provided.  Want something rich looking but affordable to make!!  Also looking for new fabric dinner napkins (18").
 
~~Supplies~~

Sewing items~~ Anything related to sewing is welcome!!  Trims, fabric, thread ect.(Gently used too)
Im also interested in any older sewing supplies as well from antiques stores and such (I have a tracing wheel i bought for $4 so they can be affordable).  Patterns (Burda Mag, Modern, Historic and Historic inspired too)!!  I need envelopes with a size 14 & 16 included in the envelope for dresses and tops and a 16 for skirts.  Thanks!!

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)

I claim frosty772 for a Spiderman apron for a kiddo.

I live in Florida (USA) with my husband, three-year-old identical twin girls, and our seven indoor cats.


Here's my wishlist!

Random Things About Me You Can Run With

Jerry Orbach is one of my all-time favorite people.

I love all things New York, especially New York City. I want to live there so badly, but my husband says no. *pouts*

Left 4 Dead & Left 4 Dead 2 are my favorite video games. I literally play them every day.

I *heart* Katy Perry. She is just the greatest. I love her fashion sense and music.

I am completely infatuated with PyramidHead from Silent Hill.

I love me some Jean-Claude Van Damme

I play Guitar Hero and RockBand on expert.

I like the Baroness from G.I. Joe (The *real* one, not that crappy new movie one.)

Jessica Rabbit is one of my favorite cartoon characters.

I love anything and everything with polka dots. Black and pink are my absolute favorite, but I do *love* all the different color combinations too. Currently my crafting room is painted pink with black polka dots.

My bedroom is decorated in horror movie decor, so anything along those lines would be great.

I'm a mom of identical twin 3-year-old girls.

I collect Disney Princesses, Care Bears, Superheroes, Neopets, and Chuck Taylors.

I really hate "Twilight".

Our kitchen is decorated in cows and pigs.

I love the “SlapChop” commercial. And I totally went out and bought one.

Our living room is decorated in our favorite television shows and movies. Absolutely anything made from the following would be awesome, "How I Met Your Mother", "40 Year Old Virgin", "Knocked Up", "Supernatural", "Superbad", "The Princess Bride", "The Odd Couple" (movie, not tv show), "Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog", "24", "Bones", "FanBoys", "The Simpsons", "Serenity/Firefly", "The Office", "A Christmas Story", "The Golden Girls", "Shaun of the Dead", "Ghostbusters", "Hot Fuzz", "Saved By The Bell", “Chopped”, “Good Eats”, and “The Big Bang Theory”.

My three favorite characters on "Bones" are Dr. Lance Sweets, Hodgins, and Agent Booth.

I love the girlie looking skull with the bow.

UPDATED MY LIST!!

I claim StephanieGravatt for supplies, supplies, supplies!!

2/0/0

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 (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!

** New ** -> Surprise from my pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/whats_her_name)

** New ** -> Any kind of kid's-type Easter decoration for the house - cute bunnies, baby chicks, anything in fun pastel colors!


Knit/Crochet ** New Category just added **

 -> Any nice, fine yarn in pink, turquoise, soft green, pale yellow, or light brown/beige.  Would be looking for 6-8 balls.  Something that knits with a small needle (i.e. 3mm-4mm) is perfect!

 -> This funky skirt (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/barefoot-knits-twirly-skirt) for my daughter - girls' size 6

 -> And I know she'd love this one (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/arwen), too!

 -> A dark (black/charcoal/navy) vest (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/-256-basic-vest-for-children) for my son, boys' size 3

 -> This hoodie (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/wonderful-wallaby) in a fun orange or turquoise for my son

 -> I also have other knit/crochet items in my pinterest for the kids here (http://pinterest.com/whats_her_name/for-the-kids/), or for me, here (http://pinterest.com/whats_her_name/knitting/)!

** New ** -> Hello Kitty amigurumi for my daughter

** New ** -> Monster or Dragon amigurumi for my son


Thrift Store Dresses  ** New Category just added **
 -> I would LOVE some big old dresses with funky fabrics - I want to cut them up for recon pieces!  Any size of at least 12 or bigger would be wonderful!!


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 - thanks babalina58!

** New ** -> Standard size ironing board cover


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!) - thanks phoenixfiredesigns!

 -> A loaded charm/bead bracelet like this one (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374421.0), but in purples & greens, or pinks & greens, or with a Ravenclaw theme (Harry Potter).  Some matching drop earrings (not too long only about 1") would be cool, too!

** New  ** -> Twisted Cable Chain (http://shop.hobbylobby.com/products/twisted-cable-chain-410571/?F_All=Y) for making my own bracelets

** New  ** -> Any cool beads or charms that could be used to make a bracelet


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://www.pinterest.com/whats_her_name/fabrics/) - many of my "to do" projects need 2 yards, but fat quarters are awesome too!

->   Superhero fabric - batman or superman!

 ->  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://www.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) - thanks again, babalina58!

 ->  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!

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,

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 atsuko for a supplies package and a crafted something :)

This is my 3rd claim with 2 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.   Really, I adore those 3 things so if you send something with any of those themes, chances are I will really like it.  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.  I am not huge on floral scents or anything too ruffle-y or frilly.  Also don't like scary themed items or religious items.


Crafts:

THIS (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5351454053/in/photostream/) with all different buttons rather than all the same.  Love it!!!!!!!

This quote (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=261832.msg2934980#msg2934980) done either similar to this or in your own special way!

Love this bird art! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50725941/caribbean-blue-and-white-bird-silhouette)  Doesn't need to be out of wood, any medium is great!

8x10 black and white artwork of any utensils to hang in my kitchen.  A big spoon or fork would be great - or a spork!!

Button tree!! (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368904.0) Doesn't have to be just like this but something similar would be awesome!

Owl Pillow (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369019.msg4359794#msg4359794) but in green or blue instead of purple

A fun ring holder to hold my wedding ring that sits on my bathroom counter since I never wear it :)

More Tree art!! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/65851154/white-birch-forest-organic-wall-art-sale?ref=fp_treasury_4)

Coiled fabric bowl - blues, greens, browns, reds or turquiose

How cute is THIS?!? (http://www.flickr.com/photos/keykalou/5401977707/)

*Warning - ridiculous wish!!*  A felted basket similar to THIS (http://www.etsy.com/listing/10018354/kangaroo-basket-red-and-pink) in blues or greens or both.

*Warning - another huge wish!!* Something similar to THIS (http://www.etsy.com/listing/64144509/ready-to-ship-large-handmade-and-hand) designed to hang on the wall

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 (http://www.etsy.com/listing/67761835/personalized-train-quilted-toddler?ref=v1_other_1) (although I would prefer his name not be on it):

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)

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

Felted pebbles like these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/62532976/felted-pebble-gift-set-in-blue-tones) for the bottom of a glass vase

Pottery - I like funky, different stuff.  Useful containers are always great!  Especially could use a sponge holder for by the kitchen sink like this. (http://www.etsy.com/listing/62788116/sponge-holder-green-blue-teal-wheel)

Fun pajama pants or shorts - size medium

Magazine Holders

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 that looks like a shark for my 2 year old

Funky wind chime or whimsy collection to hang out by the pool - we have covered areas too so it doesn't have to be totally weatherproof

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

Dislikes!- I really dislike animal prints! I can not wear regular earrings because my lobes are stretched. I also can not have anything that has a really strong smell, like something that smells like it is covered in perfume or smoke, I will get a terrible migraine.

things i extra want are in purple!

CRAFTS:


*new* crocheted market bags! there is a local farmers market down the street twice a week and we're trying to buy all our produce there! it'd be even better for our community/environment to use reusable bags! i love these two patterns from ravelry pattern 1 (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/anyone-for-oranges-market-bag) and pattern 2 (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/crocheted-produce-bag)

About Me

  • 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).

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. thanks J_Kieviet!

   -- 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.  I could really use a larger, overnight-type bag of some sort!!

 -- 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 and can send measurements!

NEW -- Kitchenaid Mixer Cover Mine is the Classic (seen here (http://www.amazon.com/KitchenAid-K45SS-Classic-275-Watt-2-Quart/dp/B00004SGFW)) and I have a few examples of covers I like here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/mixer).

NEW -- Shower Curtain All the cool fabric ones I see in the store are way overpriced. Maybe someone got a great deal on fabric or something and could make me one. I use a liner so it doesn't have to be waterproof. I have a few examples here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/shower_curtain) specifically shower curtains and some general fabric I like here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/pillow_cover)


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!) thank you, mimiw!

NEW --Hobbes Crochet Plush Ok, I just love Calvin and Hobbes and this plush (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374733.0) is awesome. (Free pattern here (http://sukigirl74.blogspot.com/2011/03/free-hobbes-crochet-pattern.html)!)

 -- 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.

NEW --Tree Arm Warmers I think these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/59384324/arm-warmers-with-embroidered-tree-design) are really cool. The colors, the tree pattern - just all of it. Really neat!

 -- Knit or Crochet Wist Item - You can find crochet items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/crochet) and 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 member 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  Fitted Style Decorated/Screnprinted/Stenciled/Embroidered 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. Also, embroidery decorated shirts are cool too!! It's getting warm here in Florida - time for some new tees!!

--  ;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.) It's getting warm here in Florida - time for some new tees!!

 --  Ceramic/pottery tea mug, oversized mug, or cereal bowl 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.)

NEW -- Ceramic/Pottery Spoon Rest I have a few examples here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/spoon_rest) but really anything earthy, or blues, or natural type glazes would be wonderful.

NEW --Embroidered PhoenixFire Designs Logo Shirt If anyone has a computerized embroidery machine where you can take a digital image and put it on a shirt, I would LOVE to get a ladies fitted polo or cute, fitted V-neck tee with my PFD logo (http://phoenixfiredesigns.com/stuff/phoenixfire-logo-embroider1a.png). That would rock. (Maybe on navy or grey or something that would make the color pop.)

NEW --Gil The Crab Art We have a Honda Element. And there were these awesomely funny commercials featuring a crab named Gil who wanted to pinch. (Youtube: I pinch! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxPg7CwtG2w)) We laugh about them still. So maybe art, or a hoop or something with Gil saying, "I pinch!" or the Element and Gil...? It would just be really funny. (Our Element is this color (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/21378575/) if you want to make it match.)

 --  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.

NEW -- Tree painting like this (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/e687240922944cc989e58b3ea8cd1b33?offset=0) but, I'd prefer it to be in autumn or spring colors.

NEW --Natural Preserves I'd like some kind of natural fruit preserve/jelly/jam/marmalade. Organic would be awesome. Definitely NOTHING with any artificial sweetener in it since I'm severely allergic. Cherry, grape, orange, apple, etc. - fruity goodness!

NEW -- Red Fox Art I think this hoop (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/38ef7f092560c014d7e1b1e836edb6dd?offset=0) is super cute and I love this panting (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b9e3fd13aef04405f82601aaa6a7e64f?offset=0) too. I'm just a fan of red foxes.

NEW -- Daffodils - As we're approaching Spring, it always makes me think of my favorite flower, the daffodil. They don't grow here in Florida so I've got some wisted daffodil items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/daffodil) to help usher in Spring.

NEW --Daffodil Spoon Ring Yes, I already listed daffodils in general but I love this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/64944473/silver-spoon-ring-daffodil). I wear a size 6 on four fingers. I think this is just really cool.

NEW --Embroidered Shirt I really like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=373950.0) idea. Doesn't have to be exact but I think that's a great place to start. Fitted shirt only please, size small if Misses or medium if Jr's cut. Jewel tones, browns, greys, etc. Maybe flowers, trees, branches, etc.? Front back, both - I just like this idea a lot.

NEW --Small Cards I could use some small cards (very petite since I use very small 00 size envelopes to ship!) to include with swaps and items I send out. The themes I like are above. I like writing out a little about the item when I send but the standard sizes don't fit in my envelopes!

 -- 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!

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, rondelles 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)
 (examples... Chrome Diopside rondelles or....Songea Sapphire (yellows/orange in color) or... Tundra Sapphire (autumn colors) etc, etc, etc!!)

  -- 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.

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

NEW --Epson Inkjet Ink Yes, odd request but I'm always needing to print things for crafts and I never have ink! There's only so much I can print at work. ;) Epson Stylus Photo R340 uses T048120 black and T048920 color ink.

NEW --Postcard Stamp I think this idea (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/4a36da69c3556b0d495149af27d5e34f?offset=0) is super fun!

NEW --Earring Findings I could use some fancier sterling and/or gold (plate/vermeil) ones, especially chandelier style like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/61443403/2-pcs-24k-vermeil-chandelier-21-x-13-x) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/51503966/4-pcs-bali-925-silver-chandelier-earring) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/57389629/2-pcs-bali-24k-vermeil-earwire-with) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/58632469/2-pcs-large-sterling-silver-925-hoop) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/58632463/4-fancy-bali-925-sterling-silver?ref=v1_other_1), etc.

NEW --Shirt dye kit I love gradient dyed shirts and various types of tie dye but I've never done it myself. Maybe some sort of kit to try it? I found this one (http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?pageName=search&flag=true&PRODID=xprd1130877) as an example, but I'm sure there's more out there. Something that has everything I need to try it would be great since I don't know where to start.

NEW --Tackle Box(es)/Craft Storage Box I store my beads in them. Ones with dividers that can move and be resized are the best. I also like something like this (http://www.amazon.com/Plano-3650-Size-Tackle-Box/dp/B000E3FKTE) or this (http://www.amazon.com/Multi-Craft-System-Avocado-Purple-Handle/dp/B001170INU) that hold tools and other things in addition. I craft on my living room couch so I'm always taking things out and putting them away. It's a pain. Some sort of easily carted box would be very helpful. (Maybe something like this is available at a craft store with a 40/50% off coupon..? Oh, like this (http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?pageName=search&flag=true&PRODID=prd62102) maybe?)

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

I claim terracruz for a gadget/phone holder and a few snack bags

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.   Really, I adore those 3 things so if you send something with any of those themes, chances are I will really like it.  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.  I am not huge on floral scents or anything too ruffle-y or frilly.  Also don't like scary themed items or religious items.


Crafts:

THIS (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5351454053/in/photostream/) with all different buttons rather than all the same.  Love it!!!!!!!

This quote (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=261832.msg2934980#msg2934980) done either similar to this or in your own special way!

Love this bird art! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50725941/caribbean-blue-and-white-bird-silhouette)  Doesn't need to be out of wood, any medium is great!

8x10 black and white artwork of any utensils to hang in my kitchen.  A big spoon or fork would be great - or a spork!!

Button tree!! (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368904.0) Doesn't have to be just like this but something similar would be awesome!

Owl Pillow (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369019.msg4359794#msg4359794) but in green or blue instead of purple

A fun ring holder to hold my wedding ring that sits on my bathroom counter since I never wear it :)

More Tree art!! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/65851154/white-birch-forest-organic-wall-art-sale?ref=fp_treasury_4)

Love these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/69045158/rustic-wood-flowers-set-of-twelve?ref=fp_treasury_6) wooden flowers!

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 (http://www.etsy.com/listing/67761835/personalized-train-quilted-toddler?ref=v1_other_1) (although I would prefer his name not be on it):

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)

Felted pebbles like these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/62532976/felted-pebble-gift-set-in-blue-tones) for the bottom of a glass vase

Pottery - I like funky, different stuff.  Useful containers are always great!  Especially could use a sponge holder for by the kitchen sink like this. (http://www.etsy.com/listing/62788116/sponge-holder-green-blue-teal-wheel)

Fun pajama pants or shorts - size medium

Magazine Holders

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 that looks like a shark for my 2 year old

Funky wind chime or whimsy collection to hang out by the pool - we have covered areas too so it doesn't have to be totally weatherproof

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

I claim mimiw for a surprise!

3/0/0               (... but 2 are ready to go to the Post Office today!)

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 tend to like things that are plainish and textured rather than very patterned. Some styles I particularly like are mid-century modern, Scandinavian, Japanese (but not kawaii). I usually like artsy-fartsy rather than cutesy :)

I don’t have allergies. I prefer natural fibres, but not exclusively. I’m happy to chat, and easy to please. *** for things I REALLY want (if that's helpful), but I will be delighted with anything on the list!

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 (http://wists.com/jemimah/organisation) – box, bag, wallet, purse, organiser, etc. – always welcome
* protective folder to store artwork in – A4 or A3 would be great
* NEW cool/or fun/ or vintage-y/or modern pendants or brooches, in any medium - metal, fabric, polyclay. (I love jewellery and have a silly amount of it already, so I may use these for other creative purposes, e.g. embellishing purses, books, home decor things - so I wouldn't want anything terribly precious :))


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 tea cosy or coffee plunger cosy (thanks GuacaMolly :))– sewn (stencilled/appliqué/embroidered/whatever), rather than knitted. Simple, plain style great. Made from recycled felted wool would be cool too. I can send measurements. Themes:- for the tea cosy, “Cake or Death?” (Eddie Izzard quote); NEWDalek (I dream of one with a dalek saying ‘Insulate!’ in fact I might just have to make this myself :D); some sort of Star Trek or Dr Who theme
* 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 (http://wists.com/jemimah/organisation) (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 (http://wists.com/jemimah/book_cover) – to fit spiral-bound A3, A4, or A5, whichever size you feel like making.
* full apron – fun vintage-y style, or plain, durable fabric
* sewing ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/sewing)
* NEW awesome pot mitts - something amusing!
*** NEW a pincushion like this (http://www.wists.com/jemimah/d23cc9d31eee5bcd3c41a9c29dfa1047?offset=0)
*** NEW I really like this stationery organiser (http://wists.com/jemimah/sewing/7a3de0bd02f5ee63e43f29d5d7b0013b?offset=40)
* NEW fabric buckets (http://wists.com/jemimah/organisation/9c3338493a87d69975894bc48cb46e33?offset=0) are great! I like them quite big (grocery bag size, or even bigger), but you don't need to put interfacing or padding/batting in them, so they can fold up flat for easy posting. They don't need to be fancy, plain and sturdy is fine. Short handles are useful, but not essential.
*** NEW awesome brooches like this (http://wists.com/jemimah/3f2d6bebae40c42190eeeade44ccc0f3?offset=0), but saying "sewing machine", or "make it sew"

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!)
* 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 ...
* knitted slouchy hat – chartreuse, rich or dull red (not too orange-y or dark please), dull denim blue, 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=) – there are some smaller things like fingerless mitts in there
*** it's getting colder here so fingerless mitts (http://www.ravelry.com/people/klgd/favorites?q=mitts&view=) have moved up my wishlist again! I like ones with thumbs rather than just thumb slits, but other than that I'm pretty flexible on styles. I particularly like cabled designs and Knucks.
* wisty things made of felt or felted wool (http://wists.com/jemimah/felt)
* NEW crochet granny square slippers (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/granny-square-slippers-2) - I like the colours in the first pic, but other colours are fine too.


PAPER RELATED
* 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
* stationery ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/stationery)


OTHER CRAFTS
* handmade ceramic item, esp. in celadon green (but any colours are good) ceramic ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/ceramics)
* 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. :)  
    (A few OWSers have sent me silk now, and I <3 it all! Thank you! I'm always happy to get more, as I do use it and love it so!)
* 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 (for needlebooks), natural coloured linen (just smallish pieces of fabric are fine; no bulk fabric – I’d love it, but it may bankrupt you to mail it) - there’s lots of fabric I like in my wist.
* Noro yarn, other silk/luxury yarn, artisan 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 artist grade)
     - 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 eco felt available here (I have stacks of ordinary synthetic felt already though)
* bamboo DPNs and or circs (I have quite a few sizes in metal, but no bamboo)
*** 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, grosgrain
* blanks for pendants or brooches (not shiny gold though)
*** NEW nice/fun cotton fat quarters or fat eighths - the selection in the shops here is rubbish! There's heaps of wisted fabric I like (http://wists.com/jemimah/fabric) to give you some ideas
* NEW bag handles (http://wists.com/jemimah/bags) - wooden or black please


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 a wisty surprise!

This is my second claim this round. I have 1 outstanding, 0 in transit, and 0 received.

Jerry Orbach is one of my all-time favorite people.

I love all things New York, especially New York City. I want to live there so badly, but my husband says no. *pouts*

Left 4 Dead & Left 4 Dead 2 are my favorite video games. I literally play them every day.

I *heart* Katy Perry. She is just the greatest. I love her fashion sense and music.

I am completely infatuated with PyramidHead from Silent Hill.

I love me some Jean-Claude Van Damme

I play Guitar Hero and RockBand on expert.

I like the Baroness from G.I. Joe (The *real* one, not that crappy new movie one.)

My bedroom is decorated in horror movie decor, so anything along those lines would be great.

I'm a mom of identical twin 3-year-old girls.

I collect Disney Princesses, Care Bears, Superheroes, Neopets, and Chuck Taylors.

I really hate "Twilight".

Our kitchen is decorated in cows and pigs.

Hi, I am Lindy I am almost 30, live in Phoenix , AZ, and have two kids who are 10 and 6.  We don’t have any allergies.  We have two cats in our home and I used to be an outdoor smoker but I quit, 7 months and counting!

My sweet Landon is all boy and loves Legos, Batman, Spongebob, Transformers, and Star Wars.  He likes to snuggle with soft fleece blankets most of the time.  
Both my kiddos like treats and stuffed animals.

I claim padfoot for a stamp carving kit.

This is my 5th 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.   Really, I adore those 3 things so if you send something with any of those themes, chances are I will really like it.  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.  I am not huge on floral scents or anything too ruffle-y or frilly.  Also don't like scary themed items or religious items.


Crafts:

THIS (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5351454053/in/photostream/) with all different buttons rather than all the same.  Love it!!!!!!!

This quote (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=261832.msg2934980#msg2934980) done either similar to this or in your own special way!

Love this bird art! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50725941/caribbean-blue-and-white-bird-silhouette)  Doesn't need to be out of wood, any medium is great!

Shirred Top - ahem, nudge, nudge Dawl :)

8x10 black and white artwork of any utensils to hang in my kitchen.  A big spoon or fork would be great - or a spork!!

Button tree!! (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368904.0) Doesn't have to be just like this but something similar would be awesome!

Owl Pillow (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369019.msg4359794#msg4359794) but in green or blue instead of purple

A fun ring holder to hold my wedding ring that sits on my bathroom counter since I never wear it :)

More Tree art!! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/65851154/white-birch-forest-organic-wall-art-sale?ref=fp_treasury_4)

Coiled fabric bowl - blues, greens, browns, reds or turquiose

How cute is THIS?!? (http://www.flickr.com/photos/keykalou/5401977707/)

Curtain Tie Backs similar to these (in red or brown) (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366649.0)

Paper roses or other flower (http://www.etsy.com/listing/68362880/paper-roses-repurposed-atlas-small-set) to stick in a vase

*Warning - ridiculous wish!!*  A felted basket similar to THIS (http://www.etsy.com/listing/10018354/kangaroo-basket-red-and-pink) in blues or greens or both.

*Warning - another huge wish!!* Something similar to THIS (http://www.etsy.com/listing/64144509/ready-to-ship-large-handmade-and-hand) designed to hang on the wall

Love these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/69045158/rustic-wood-flowers-set-of-twelve?ref=fp_treasury_6) wooden flowers!

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 (http://www.etsy.com/listing/67761835/personalized-train-quilted-toddler?ref=v1_other_1) (although I would prefer his name not be on it):

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)
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 (http://www.etsy.com/listing/10837611/brave-men-run-in-my-family-adult-large) shirt in a non-tight/clingy medium or large.

Artwork for my walls - I like anything nature inspired or funky.  Here is an example of stuff I like:
http://www.etsy.com/listing/46110213/a-living-tree-on-the-left (http://www.etsy.com/listing/46110213/a-living-tree-on-the-left)


Felted pebbles like these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/62532976/felted-pebble-gift-set-in-blue-tones) for the bottom of a glass vase

Pottery - I like funky, different stuff.  Useful containers are always great!  Especially could use a sponge holder for by the kitchen sink like this. (http://www.etsy.com/listing/62788116/sponge-holder-green-blue-teal-wheel)

Fun pajama pants or shorts - size medium

Magazine Holders

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 that looks like a shark for my 2 year old

Funky wind chime or whimsy collection to hang out by the pool - we have covered areas too so it doesn't have to be totally weatherproof

Hoopla!  Trees, birds, octopus, whatever!  There are a few on my wist that I particularly like.  I really, really, really want these:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/annaleahart/4562411412/ (http://www.flickr.com/photos/annaleahart/4562411412/)
http://www.etsy.com/listing/68304758/you-were-meant-for-me-embroidery-hoop?ref=fp_ph_12&src=favitm (http://www.etsy.com/listing/68304758/you-were-meant-for-me-embroidery-hoop?ref=fp_ph_12&src=favitm)

Decorated or painted letters of the alphabet.  I would love to do an alphabet wall with all different shapes and sizes of letters for my son since he is learning it right now.

Cloth napkins - stenciled, plain, whatever

Thomas the Train standard pillowcase for my son

Handmade Christmas ornaments -  nothing religious please

Yarn bowl

Interesting baskets to store junk in

I claim Edie for a surprise and some supplies

4th claim /1 in transit /1 received

:: About Me ::

* I live in PA currently with my hubby of 15 years and NONE of our 6 kids ! woooot, they all moved out finally ! and 2 goldfish that belong to our youngest granddaughter !
* In the next few months hubby and I are packing up the VW Bus ( my mini van ) and hitting the road to live in sunny FL
* I'm a huge football fan - love my Miami Dolphins
* 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 don't much care for animal prints, I do enjoy paisely prints, skulls, and of course dolphin prints or mermaid, sea themed prints - Hubby & I both love nature, some of our favorite animals are wolves, dolphins, manatees, opossums, arctic fox.
* 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

I'm going to claim Maurer for a some embroidery hoops!  And possibly some address lables if my printer will let me.  :D
Okay, my printer let me, so you will be getting some address labels too! 

1st claim this round, 0 sent, 0 received.


Hello!  I’m located in the United States.  No allergies for me.  Dear hubby has severe sinus issues but as long as things aren’t super perfumey or smokey then that’s fine.  Anyways, about me.  I’m the nerd of the whole family.  I dress with my own sense of style.  Think Harry Potter scarves, video game shirts, short plaid skirts, long boho skirts, knee high socks, & lots of tattoos.  I’m the one at all the family gatherings either crocheting/reading or playing video games.  I like anything Harry Potter, iguanas, tattoos, the old 80’s cartoons, reading, 1950s styles, video games, owls, koi, dragons, phoenixs, gryffins, squid & pirates.  Colors I like are black, burgundy/gold, purple/black, black/white, red/black/white, argyle & plaid.  Craft and theme wise I don’t like creepy or adult themed things, the colors orange/yellow or bright & pastel colors.

I claim missmoppet for a case for her nook!

4/2/1

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 I just turned 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.
Ryan Berkley Art. (http://www.etsy.com/shop/berkleyillustration)


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.

Craft Items

A Pinterest (http://pinterest.com/tsloter/) Surprise! - Lots of new goodies to see there!

***Embroidery Hoop project bag- something like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=166083;sa=showImages) idea although this is not in stone. I just want to be able to carry a hoop or two and some needles, thread and scissors.

Post by: luckdragon on March 19, 2011 05:25:25 PM
I claim thedish - for either the dragon dice case or a pinteresty surprise!

1/0/0

My name is Karen and I live in Austin, TX with my teenaged dd (who typically ends up with most of my swap items    ;D ;D), 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.

If you are doing a t-shirt, please not a men's or hanes or jerzees. Thanks!

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 some Steampunk jewelry!

4th claim, 1 sent, 2 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.

I claim atsuko for embroidered tshirts for Lana. or if that fails a supply package :)

5/1/2

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 I just turned 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.
Ryan Berkley Art.


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

A Pinterest Surprise! - Lots of new goodies to see there!

*** A Coupon organizer with a zippered pouches that can hold coins (my store uses fake coins for special deals.) If it matters, I am a vegan, so no steak section, etc.
***Embroidery Hoop project bag- something like this idea although this is not in stone. I just want to be able to carry a hoop or two and some needles, thread and scissors.
***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 on the back
*** Dust cover with pockets for my sewing machine – Brother LS-2125
***Dust cover with pockets for my serger – Brother Lock 1034D
-sewing machine apron
-A thread catcher to go by my sewing machine.
-Handmade sugar scrub
***I am in DIRE need of two lunch bags. Basically they need to be able to hold a large tupperware container FLAT as well as a thermos or large plastic bottle with handles/preferably with an adjustable long strap. One of the in any of my themes for me, the other one I would like to say "Bag of Holding" on it or something else Dungeons and Dragons related. If you have another clever idea please message me. (can be two claims)
-reusable sandwich wraps/bags/snack bags – preferably made with nylon or PEVA. Please no oil cloth on the inside. (I have gotten some great ones, but need more!)
***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)
-dog poop bag holder to connect to leash (2 please)
-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!
-Texas themed embroidery hoop.
NEW-a lap quilt in themes I like, doesn't need to be a complicated pattern or anything.
NEW-fabric buckets for storing craft supplies, and some with waterproof inside for bathroom stuff.
NEW a hip pouch/fanny pack. See styles I like in my pinterest. It needs to have an inside pocket for my iphone 4 at the very least.
-A Big Cushy dog bed, (or a cover that I can stuff an old blanket into)
***Arm Warmers something like this  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.
***Dungeons and Dragons related stuff ( ESPECIALLY if you are into terrain making, we would love D&D scaled trees, fences, buildings, basically anything to scale and fantasy related (or just basic outdoor scenery like model train scenery.)
***A Dice box like this Would be FABULOUS if it was larger and the inside was lined with felt for rolling dice!
***D20 cufflinks. Would LOVE some that are cast in a metal, but would also love some actual dice (D20's only) that are made into cufflinks.
***A soft case/sleeve for my Iphone 4 that is fun and in one of my themes.



Craft Supplies
(used supplies in great shape are very welcome!)

-sewing pattern weights (crafted or bought)

-dog surprises? My dogs are named Amy Doghouse and Conan the Barkbarian, or as I like to call him - Conan the Destroyer.

I'll claim Babalina for a Cricut cartridge  :D

First claim/0 sent/0 received

I live in New Hampshire (USA) in an old house 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 like 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.   Things that combine mechanical gadgets, Victoriana and natural history as in steampunkery are good and favored colors are earth-, sea-, or general nature-tones (sea glass colors, jewel tones and milk paint colors).  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."

I claim muddy21 for some earrings and some craft books!

2/0/0

My name is Karen and I live in Austin, TX with my teenaged dd (who typically ends up with most of my swap items    ;D ;D), 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.

If you are doing a t-shirt, please not a men's or hanes or jerzees. Thanks!

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 bicycle handlebar bag.

6/0/3

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 I just turned 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.
Ryan Berkley Art. (http://www.etsy.com/shop/berkleyillustration)


I don't wear jewelry of any kind. (although occasionally there might be jewelry related things for gift giving.)
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 especially love ikea fabrics.
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

A Pinteresty (http://pinterest.com/tsloter/) Surprise! - Lots of new goodies to see there!

***Embroidery Hoop project bag- something like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=166083;sa=showImages) idea although this is not in stone. I just want to be able to carry a hoop or two and some needles, thread and scissors.

***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.
***Dungeons and Dragons related stuff ( ESPECIALLY if you are into terrain making, we would love D&D scaled trees, fences, buildings, basically anything to scale and fantasy related (or just basic outdoor scenery like model train scenery.)
***A Dice box like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/67801759/green-dragon-dice-boxref=sr_list_34&ga_search_query=dungeons+and+dragons&ga_page=7&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade) Would be FABULOUS if it was larger and the inside was lined with felt for rolling dice! thanks luckdragon!
***D20 cufflinks. Would LOVE some that are cast in a metal, but would also love some actual dice (D20's only) that are made into cufflinks.

I claim SMLounsbury for stenciled Star Wars shirts for her son

5th Claim/0 in transit/2 received

Hi, I am Lindy I am almost 30, live in Phoenix , AZ, and have two kids who are 10 and 6.  We don’t have any allergies.  We have two cats in our home and I used to be an outdoor smoker but I quit, 7 months and counting!  
Themes that I love are tattoos, butterflies, turtles, dinosaurs, Alice in Wonderland (Disney or original), Stars, cupcakes/sweets, and skulls.  I like just about all colors except orange and yellow but I love pink, black, and sliver.  I also love books, all things tiny, music, marshmallows, chocolate, bacon, peanut butter, and white cheddar cheese popcorn.  
My Adia is a tween who likes blue, green, Justin Bieber, and kittens.  She also likes a lot of the same things as me such as cupcakes, whimsies, and butterflies.  She is starting to get into clothes and jewelry.  She also loves babies, real ones and pretend ones.  
My sweet Landon is all boy and loves Legos, Batman, Spongebob, Transformers, and Star Wars.  He likes to snuggle with soft fleece blankets most of the time.  
Both my kiddos like treats and stuffed animals.

I like to make jewelry, inchies, stencil shirts, embroidery, do felt appliqué, simple sewing, work with resin, and all around general craftiness.  I am currently teaching myself to crochet.  I always love to receive supplies and random ephemera.

I'm going to claim lindyv321 for some jewelry surprises. She's always so fun to craft for!  ;D

Claim #4 total / 1 in transit / 2 received


About Me
33 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats.
  • My favorite colors are jewel tones (like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber) or earth tones (like greens/browns together).
  • My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy.
  • My favorite colors for shirts/clothes are browns, greens, purples, and both heather and charcoal greys.
  • I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together
  • I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.)
  • My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes.
  • My favorite flower is the Daffodil.
  • My favorite movie is Back to the Future
  • My favorite hobbies include: reading, photography and I love all things Disney!

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

Crafty Wishes

 ;D = BIG WISH!

Sewing
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. thanks J_Kieviet!

   -- 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.  I could really use a larger, overnight-type bag of some sort!!

 -- 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 and can send measurements!

NEW -- Kitchenaid Mixer Cover Mine is the Classic (seen here (http://www.amazon.com/KitchenAid-K45SS-Classic-275-Watt-2-Quart/dp/B00004SGFW)) and I have a few examples of covers I like here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/mixer).

NEW -- Shower Curtain All the cool fabric ones I see in the store are way overpriced. Maybe someone got a great deal on fabric or something and could make me one. I use a liner so it doesn't have to be waterproof. I have a few examples here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/shower_curtain) specifically shower curtains and some general fabric I like here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/pillow_cover)


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!) thank you, mimiw!

NEW --Hobbes Crochet Plush Ok, I just love Calvin and Hobbes and this plush (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374733.0) is awesome. (Free pattern here (http://sukigirl74.blogspot.com/2011/03/free-hobbes-crochet-pattern.html)!)

 -- 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.

NEW --Tree Arm Warmers I think these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/59384324/arm-warmers-with-embroidered-tree-design) are really cool. The colors, the tree pattern - just all of it. Really neat!

 -- Knit or Crochet Wist Item - You can find crochet items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/crochet) and 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 member 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  Fitted Style Decorated/Screnprinted/Stenciled/Embroidered 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. Also, embroidery decorated shirts are cool too!! It's getting warm here in Florida - time for some new tees!!

--  ;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.) It's getting warm here in Florida - time for some new tees!!

 --  Ceramic/pottery tea mug, oversized mug, or cereal bowl 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.)

NEW -- Ceramic/Pottery Spoon Rest I have a few examples here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/spoon_rest) but really anything earthy, or blues, or natural type glazes would be wonderful.

NEW --Embroidered PhoenixFire Designs Logo Shirt If anyone has a computerized embroidery machine where you can take a digital image and put it on a shirt, I would LOVE to get a ladies fitted polo or cute, fitted V-neck tee with my PFD logo (http://phoenixfiredesigns.com/stuff/phoenixfire-logo-embroider1a.png). That would rock. (Maybe on navy or grey or something that would make the color pop.)

NEW --Gil The Crab Art We have a Honda Element. And there were these awesomely funny commercials featuring a crab named Gil who wanted to pinch. (Youtube: I pinch! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxPg7CwtG2w)) We laugh about them still. So maybe art, or a hoop or something with Gil saying, "I pinch!" or the Element and Gil...? It would just be really funny. (Our Element is this color (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/21378575/) if you want to make it match.)

 --  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.

NEW -- Tree painting like this (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/e687240922944cc989e58b3ea8cd1b33?offset=0) but, I'd prefer it to be in autumn or spring colors.

NEW --Natural Preserves I'd like some kind of natural fruit preserve/jelly/jam/marmalade. Organic would be awesome. Definitely NOTHING with any artificial sweetener in it since I'm severely allergic. Cherry, grape, orange, apple, etc. - fruity goodness!

NEW -- Red Fox Art I love this panting (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b9e3fd13aef04405f82601aaa6a7e64f?offset=0) as an example. I'm just a fan of red foxes.

NEW -- Daffodils - As we're approaching Spring, it always makes me think of my favorite flower, the daffodil. They don't grow here in Florida so I've got some wisted daffodil items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/daffodil) to help usher in Spring.

NEW --Daffodil Spoon Ring Yes, I already listed daffodils in general but I love this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/64944473/silver-spoon-ring-daffodil). I wear a size 6 on four fingers. I think this is just really cool.

NEW --Embroidered Shirt I really like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=373950.0) idea. Doesn't have to be exact but I think that's a great place to start. Fitted shirt only please, size small if Misses or medium if Jr's cut. Jewel tones, browns, greys, etc. Maybe flowers, trees, branches, etc.? Front back, both - I just like this idea a lot.

NEW --Small Cards I could use some small cards (very petite since I use very small 00 size envelopes to ship!) to include with swaps and items I send out. The themes I like are above. I like writing out a little about the item when I send but the standard sizes don't fit in my envelopes!

 -- 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!

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, rondelles 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)
 (examples... Chrome Diopside rondelles or....Songea Sapphire (yellows/orange in color) or... Tundra Sapphire (autumn colors) etc, etc, etc!!)

  -- 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.

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

NEW --Epson Inkjet Ink Yes, odd request but I'm always needing to print things for crafts and I never have ink! There's only so much I can print at work. ;) Epson Stylus Photo R340 uses T048120 black and T048920 color ink.

NEW --Fabric Markers I just found out about these (http://wists.com/phoenixfiredesigns/23e7470f11672494a804e6c790a2a36f?offset=0) and I think that's super cool! Anything like this where it's an actual pen/marker would be great!

NEW --Postcard Stamp I think this idea (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/4a36da69c3556b0d495149af27d5e34f?offset=0) is super fun!

NEW --Earring Findings I could use some fancier sterling and/or gold (plate/vermeil) ones, especially chandelier style like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/61443403/2-pcs-24k-vermeil-chandelier-21-x-13-x) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/51503966/4-pcs-bali-925-silver-chandelier-earring) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/57389629/2-pcs-bali-24k-vermeil-earwire-with) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/58632469/2-pcs-large-sterling-silver-925-hoop) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/58632463/4-fancy-bali-925-sterling-silver?ref=v1_other_1), etc.

NEW --Shirt dye kit I love gradient dyed shirts and various types of tie dye but I've never done it myself. Maybe some sort of kit to try it? I found this one (http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?pageName=search&flag=true&PRODID=xprd1130877) as an example, but I'm sure there's more out there. Something that has everything I need to try it would be great since I don't know where to start.

NEW --Tackle Box(es)/Craft Storage Box I store my beads in them. Ones with dividers that can move and be resized are the best. I also like something like this (http://www.amazon.com/Plano-3650-Size-Tackle-Box/dp/B000E3FKTE) or this (http://www.amazon.com/Multi-Craft-System-Avocado-Purple-Handle/dp/B001170INU) that hold tools and other things in addition. I craft on my living room couch so I'm always taking things out and putting them away. It's a pain. Some sort of easily carted box would be very helpful. (Maybe something like this is available at a craft store with a 40/50% off coupon..? Oh, like this (http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?pageName=search&flag=true&PRODID=prd62102) maybe?)

NEW --Cricut Sure it's a silly wish but maybe someone has one they don't use anymore? That'd be cool!

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

I claim Padfoot for embroidery hoops and aida fabrics!

1/0/0

Hi!  I’m Alicia!  I’m 22 and a chemistry grad student in Wisconsin (USA).  I live with my WoW head boyfriend and his crazy cat Jezebel.

Likes:  lots of color! (especially blues and greens), argyle, anything food or cooking related, sciencey things, using old, unloved things to make new, useful ones, wolves, video games (Luigi is my favorite!), BOOKS (fantasy FTW), faeries, Ireland, and RPG’s (World of Darkness specifically)
 
Dislikes:  super pink and cutesy or death/goth things (somewhere in the middle is generally good).  Other than that, the sky is the limit!  I’m pretty easy to please, and no allergies! 
 
Crafts
 
**A handmade clasp (safety pin type or otherwise) for a cloak I’ve made.  It’s an open cloak (think Lord of the Rings) in a dark teal color.  It would be the only ornamentation on there, so you could go as complicated as you want with it, but I would want any metal to be silver.
 
**A D20 dice bag like   this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=322077.msg3714609#msg3714609)
Could be any colors or fabrics, this one's just an example!

Wool socks-knitted, crocheted, made from felted sweaters, whatever!- (US women’s size 10).  I live in WI.  Warm socks are a must. ;D

A book locket necklace!  I’ve seen several different kinds of these, and loved them all!
 
A shirt with “No power in the ‘verse can stop me” from Serenity stenciled on it.  Can be however you want to do it except for cutesy. Women’s M for a regular tshirt (“juniors” shirts are way too short on me), if it runs tight/short – then L.  (Long sleeve shirts are good too!)

Homemade lotions/body butters- I have eczema, so anything with dry skin love would be great (please no soap though, full up on that at the moment!)

**Something World of Warcraft related for the bf.  He plays an Alliance Dranei Shaman, and would love something with his totem on it. 

**Thick oven mitts, any color or pattern. Extra long would be extra awesome!  Somehow these always get destroyed at my house…

Amigurumis of Mario or Bowser.  I got Luigi and my bf thinks we should have a whole set!

Very simple braided wire ring, with or without a small stone/bead.  Either size 9 for a thumb ring or size 7 for a regular ring.  My favorite example is on my wist.

Cute herbal sachets- anything that smells good, but lavender is my absolute favorite!

Handmade blank cards for putting into swap packages in any of my themes or colors

A “neck warmer” or other circle scarf. (example on my wist)  I want it to cover my mouth and nose so it would need to be fairly tall.

**I would love a lunch bag in any of my themes, big enough to hold a midsize Tupperware.  Lined with oilcloth/vinyl/something washable would be especially good.

A tabletop ironing mat.  I have a mini ironing board, but these seems like they’d be so much easier!

Anything related to:  Good Eats, Back to the Future, or the Tenth Kingdom
 
My wist is not very big yet, but anything off of, or just vaguely inspired by, the things on there would be great!  I love surprises, so anything that you think I would like or that you love to make, go for it!
 
Craft Supplies – I totally support reusing supplies, so used is always more than okay!
 
**SUPER BIG WISH** Latchhook yarn in any color other than white, black, or browns.  A mixture of all of them would actually be best, so if you have leftover/unused from a latchhook kit, I would love you forever!
 
** Regular yarn! Anything non-scratchy would be great, please no novelty yarns.  Handspun obviously would be epic!

**Fiskars 45mm rotary cutter replacement blades

Tailor’s chalk (preferably white, but any color would be good)

Clear quilter’s ruler

Water-soluble fabric markers

Small gemstone chips/beads (no particular preference on type, just think they would be fun to try out!)

Corset boning

Sewing patterns of stylish women’s clothing or any fantasy-type costumes: need to have size US 10/12/14 (not all of them, just somewhere in the range, I’m never quite sure which size I am!)

Books (as always, used is fine): Sew Serendipity, The Feisty Stitcher, a beginner amigurumi book

A small shelf with lots of compartments to make a whimsy display

I know this is kind of ridiculous, but if someone has an old serger they don’t use anymore, I would give it a good home!  I have been trying to save up for one, but life keeps getting in the way.  It wouldn’t have to be fancy, just functioning. 

A simple key stamp (handmade or storebought).  I am looking to make a surcoat like this (http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2010/353/1/5/sabriel_costume_by_leludallas-d357l14.png)

A plain black zip up hoodie, size men’s large.

A small scrapbook (don’t really care what kind)  with a kelly green cover.
 
Extras

Tea (non-herbal) or hot chocolate
Any sewing (non-quilting) magazines you want to get rid of, especially Threads or BurdaStyle!
Any of your favorite recipes (especially if you make delicious ethnic foods)!!

Thanks in advance to whoever makes my wish come true!!

I claim Maurer for a surprise :)

This is my 7th claim with 1 sent and 4 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.   Really, I adore those 3 things so if you send something with any of those themes, chances are I will really like it.  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.  I am not huge on floral scents or anything too ruffle-y or frilly.  Also don't like scary themed items or religious items.


Crafts:

THIS (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5351454053/in/photostream/) with all different buttons rather than all the same.  Love it!!!!!!!

This quote (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=261832.msg2934980#msg2934980) done either similar to this or in your own special way!

Love this bird art! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50725941/caribbean-blue-and-white-bird-silhouette)  Doesn't need to be out of wood, any medium is great!

Shirred Top - ahem, nudge, nudge Dawl :)

8x10 black and white artwork of any utensils to hang in my kitchen.  A big spoon or fork would be great - or a spork!!

Button tree!! (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368904.0) Doesn't have to be just like this but something similar would be awesome!

Owl Pillow (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369019.msg4359794#msg4359794) but in green or blue instead of purple

A fun ring holder to hold my wedding ring that sits on my bathroom counter since I never wear it :)

More Tree art!! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/65851154/white-birch-forest-organic-wall-art-sale?ref=fp_treasury_4)

Coiled fabric bowl - blues, greens, browns, reds or turquiose

How cute is THIS?!? (http://www.flickr.com/photos/keykalou/5401977707/)

Paper roses or other flower (http://www.etsy.com/listing/68362880/paper-roses-repurposed-atlas-small-set) to stick in a vase

*Warning - ridiculous wish!!*  A felted basket similar to THIS (http://www.etsy.com/listing/10018354/kangaroo-basket-red-and-pink) in blues or greens or both.

*Warning - another huge wish!!* Something similar to THIS (http://www.etsy.com/listing/64144509/ready-to-ship-large-handmade-and-hand) designed to hang on the wall

Love these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/69045158/rustic-wood-flowers-set-of-twelve?ref=fp_treasury_6) wooden flowers!

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 (http://www.etsy.com/listing/67761835/personalized-train-quilted-toddler?ref=v1_other_1) (although I would prefer his name not be on it):

T shirts - size medium, or large if they are fitted.  Please no unisex or 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)

Felted pebbles like these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/62532976/felted-pebble-gift-set-in-blue-tones) for the bottom of a glass vase

Pottery - I like funky, different stuff.  Useful containers are always great!  Especially could use a sponge holder for by the kitchen sink like this. (http://www.etsy.com/listing/62788116/sponge-holder-green-blue-teal-wheel)

Fun pajama pants or shorts - size medium

Magazine Holders

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 that looks like a shark for my 2 year old

Funky wind chime or whimsy collection to hang out by the pool - we have covered areas too so it doesn't have to be totally weatherproof

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

I claim Dawl for a supply package and possibly a small button art?

2/0/0

Hi!  I’m Alicia!  I’m 22 and a chemistry grad student in Wisconsin (USA).  I live with my WoW head boyfriend and his crazy cat Jezebel.

Likes:  lots of color! (especially blues and greens), argyle, anything food or cooking related, sciencey things, using old, unloved things to make new, useful ones, wolves, video games (Luigi is my favorite!), BOOKS (fantasy FTW), faeries, Ireland, and RPG’s (World of Darkness specifically)
 
Dislikes:  super pink and cutesy or death/goth things (somewhere in the middle is generally good).  Other than that, the sky is the limit!  I’m pretty easy to please, and no allergies! 
 
Crafts
 
**A handmade clasp (safety pin type or otherwise) for a cloak I’ve made.  It’s an open cloak (think Lord of the Rings) in a dark teal color.  It would be the only ornamentation on there, so you could go as complicated as you want with it, but I would want any metal to be silver.
 
**A D20 dice bag like   this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=322077.msg3714609#msg3714609)
Could be any colors or fabrics, this one's just an example!

Wool socks-knitted, crocheted, made from felted sweaters, whatever!- (US women’s size 10).  I live in WI.  Warm socks are a must. ;D

A book locket necklace!  I’ve seen several different kinds of these, and loved them all!
 
A shirt with “No power in the ‘verse can stop me” from Serenity stenciled on it.  Can be however you want to do it except for cutesy. Women’s M for a regular tshirt (“juniors” shirts are way too short on me), if it runs tight/short – then L.  (Long sleeve shirts are good too!)

Homemade lotions/body butters- I have eczema, so anything with dry skin love would be great (please no soap though, full up on that at the moment!)

**Something World of Warcraft related for the bf.  He plays an Alliance Dranei Shaman, and would love something with his totem on it. 

**Thick oven mitts, any color or pattern. Extra long would be extra awesome!  Somehow these always get destroyed at my house…  Thanks Maurer!

Amigurumis of Mario or Bowser.  I got Luigi and my bf thinks we should have a whole set!

Very simple braided wire ring, with or without a small stone/bead.  Either size 9 for a thumb ring or size 7 for a regular ring.  My favorite example is on my wist.

Cute herbal sachets- anything that smells good, but lavender is my absolute favorite!

Handmade blank cards for putting into swap packages in any of my themes or colors

A “neck warmer” or other circle scarf. (example on my wist)  I want it to cover my mouth and nose so it would need to be fairly tall.

**I would love a lunch bag in any of my themes, big enough to hold a midsize Tupperware.  Lined with oilcloth/vinyl/something washable would be especially good.

A tabletop ironing mat.  I have a mini ironing board, but these seems like they’d be so much easier!

Tie-dyed anything!  Clothing especially, but if you incorporate it into something else you make for me, I’m sure to love that too!

Anything related to:  Good Eats, Back to the Future, or the Tenth Kingdom
 
My wist is not very big yet, but anything off of, or just vaguely inspired by, the things on there would be great!  I love surprises, so anything that you think I would like or that you love to make, go for it!
 
Craft Supplies – I totally support reusing supplies, so used is always more than okay!
 
**SUPER BIG WISH** Latchhook yarn in any color other than white, black, or browns.  A mixture of all of them would actually be best, so if you have leftover/unused from a latchhook kit, I would love you forever!
 
** Regular yarn! Anything non-scratchy would be great, please no novelty yarns.  Handspun obviously would be epic!

**Fiskars 45mm rotary cutter replacement blades

Tailor’s chalk (preferably white, but any color would be good)

Clear quilter’s ruler

Water-soluble fabric markers

Small gemstone chips/beads (no particular preference on type, just think they would be fun to try out!)

Corset boning

Sewing patterns of stylish women’s clothing or any fantasy-type costumes: need to have size US 10/12/14 (not all of them, just somewhere in the range, I’m never quite sure which size I am!)

Books (as always, used is fine): Sew Serendipity, The Feisty Stitcher, a beginner amigurumi book

A small shelf with lots of compartments to make a whimsy display

I know this is kind of ridiculous, but if someone has an old serger they don’t use anymore, I would give it a good home!  I have been trying to save up for one, but life keeps getting in the way.  It wouldn’t have to be fancy, just functioning. 

A simple key stamp (handmade or storebought).  I am looking to make a surcoat like this (http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2010/353/1/5/sabriel_costume_by_leludallas-d357l14.png)

A plain black zip up hoodie, size men’s large.

A small scrapbook (don’t really care what kind)  with a kelly green cover.
 
Extras

Tea (non-herbal) or hot chocolate
Any sewing (non-quilting) magazines you want to get rid of, especially Threads or BurdaStyle!
Any of your favorite recipes (especially if you make delicious ethnic foods)!!

Thanks in advance to whoever makes my wish come true!!

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.

  • I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together

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. thanks J_Kieviet!

   -- 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.  I could really use a larger, overnight-type bag of some sort!!

 -- 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 and can send measurements!

NEW --Comfy Lounge Pants I get home and immediately change into comfy pants for around the house. I can always use more. I like them soft, comfy and not tight. Lightweight is best for Florida. The simplier the better. I have some wisted here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/comfy_pants) with these (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/comfy_pants/753f11d8dada963eb542dde8bdd59b2c?offset=0) my favorite in style. I tend to buy them in a medium to be more roomy. (Measurement specifics on wist description.)

NEW -- Kitchenaid Mixer Cover Mine is the Classic (seen here (http://www.amazon.com/KitchenAid-K45SS-Classic-275-Watt-2-Quart/dp/B00004SGFW)) and I have a few examples of covers I like here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/mixer).

NEW --Small Digital Camera Case I have a Canon PowerShot SD1100is and it could use a nicer protective case. I have some wisted here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/camera_case) for example. (You can also see other fabrics I like here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/nook_fabric) or just surprise me based on my likes!)

NEW --Cable Sweater Purse like here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/knit/6a6b5572230270a66afc8e6ed618d55a?offset=20). I've seen these made from repurposed sweaters, lined and then turned into a purse. I'm such a big fan of cable knit I really love this style. (Could be a different color, or a different ribbon color; just an inspiration example.

NEW -- Shower Curtain All the cool fabric ones I see in the store are way overpriced. Maybe someone got a great deal on fabric or something and could make me one. I use a liner so it doesn't have to be waterproof. I have a few examples here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/shower_curtain) specifically shower curtains and some general fabric I like here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/pillow_cover)


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!) thank you, mimiw!

NEW --Hobbes Crochet Plush Ok, I just love Calvin and Hobbes and this plush (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374733.0) is awesome. (Free pattern here (http://sukigirl74.blogspot.com/2011/03/free-hobbes-crochet-pattern.html)!)

 -- 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.

NEW --Tree Arm Warmers I think these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/59384324/arm-warmers-with-embroidered-tree-design) are really cool. The colors, the tree pattern - just all of it. Really neat!

 -- Knit or Crochet Wist Item - You can find crochet items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/crochet) and 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 member 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  Fitted Style Decorated/Screnprinted/Stenciled/Embroidered 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. Also, embroidery decorated shirts are cool too!! It's getting warm here in Florida - time for some new tees!!

--  ;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.) It's getting warm here in Florida - time for some new tees!!

 --  Ceramic/pottery tea mug, oversized mug, or cereal bowl 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.

NEW --Something Stained Glass I love stained glass. A little window decoration, a nightlight, a decorative piece - I think stained glass is so pretty. I have some pieces wisted here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/stained_glass) for inspiration.

NEW --Hoopla based on my likes (owls, trees, penguins, phoenix, Disney, daffodils, Back to the Future, bats, red foxes, etc., etc.)

NEW -- Ceramic/Pottery Spoon Rest I have a few examples here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/spoon_rest) but really anything earthy, or blues, or natural type glazes would be wonderful.

NEW --Embroidered PhoenixFire Designs Logo Shirt If anyone has a computerized embroidery machine where you can take a digital image and put it on a shirt, I would LOVE to get a ladies fitted polo or cute, fitted V-neck tee with my PFD logo (http://phoenixfiredesigns.com/stuff/phoenixfire-logo-embroider1a.png). That would rock. (Maybe on navy or grey or something that would make the color pop.)

NEW --Gil The Crab Art/Hoopla We have a Honda Element. And there were these awesomely funny commercials featuring a crab named Gil who wanted to pinch. (Youtube: I pinch! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxPg7CwtG2w)) We laugh about them still. So maybe art, or a hoop or something with Gil saying, "I pinch!" with the Element next to it like the commercial. It would just be really funny. (Our Element is this color (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/21378575/) if you want to make it match.)

NEW -- Tree painting like this (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/e687240922944cc989e58b3ea8cd1b33?offset=0) but, I'd prefer it to be in autumn or spring colors.

NEW --Natural Preserves I'd like some kind of natural fruit preserve/jelly/jam/marmalade. Organic would be awesome. Definitely NOTHING with any artificial sweetener in it since I'm severely allergic. Cherry, grape, orange, apple, etc. - fruity goodness!

NEW -- Red Fox Art I love this panting (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b9e3fd13aef04405f82601aaa6a7e64f?offset=0) as an example. I'm just a fan of red foxes.

NEW -- Daffodils - As we're approaching Spring, it always makes me think of my favorite flower, the daffodil. They don't grow here in Florida so I've got some wisted daffodil items here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/daffodil) to help usher in Spring.

NEW --Daffodil Spoon Ring Yes, I already listed daffodils in general but I love this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/64944473/silver-spoon-ring-daffodil). I wear a size 6 on four fingers. I think this is just really cool.

NEW --Embroidered Shirt I really like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=373950.0) idea. Doesn't have to be exact but I think that's a great place to start. Fitted shirt only please, size small if Misses or medium if Jr's cut. Jewel tones, browns, greys, etc. Maybe flowers, trees, branches, etc.? Front back, both - I just like this idea a lot.

NEW --Small Cards I could use some small cards (very petite since I use very small 000 size envelopes which are 4x7 to ship!) to include with swaps and items I send out. The themes I like are above. I like writing out a little about the item when I send but the standard sizes don't fit in my envelopes!

NEW --Embroidery Surprise I have a bunch of assorted items both stitched and embroidered here (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/embroidery) which can be used as an 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!

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. (These are examples. If you find something similar at another shop that's perfectly fine!)
 - 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, rondelles 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)
 (examples... Chrome Diopside rondelles or....Songea Sapphire (yellows/orange in color) or... Tundra Sapphire (autumn colors) etc, etc, etc!!)

  -- 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.

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

NEW --Epson Inkjet Ink Yes, odd request but I'm always needing to print things for crafts and I never have ink! There's only so much I can print at work. ;) Epson Stylus Photo R340 uses T048120 black and T048920 color ink.

NEW --Fabric Markers I just found out about these (http://wists.com/phoenixfiredesigns/23e7470f11672494a804e6c790a2a36f?offset=0) and I think that's super cool! Anything like this where it's an actual pen/marker would be great!

NEW --Postcard Stamp I think this idea (http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/4a36da69c3556b0d495149af27d5e34f?offset=0) is super fun!

NEW --Earring Findings I could use some fancier sterling and/or gold (plate/vermeil) ones, especially chandelier style like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/61443403/2-pcs-24k-vermeil-chandelier-21-x-13-x) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/51503966/4-pcs-bali-925-silver-chandelier-earring) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/57389629/2-pcs-bali-24k-vermeil-earwire-with) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/58632469/2-pcs-large-sterling-silver-925-hoop) or this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/58632463/4-fancy-bali-925-sterling-silver?ref=v1_other_1), etc.

NEW --Shirt dye kit I love gradient dyed shirts and various types of tie dye but I've never done it myself. Maybe some sort of kit to try it? I found this one (http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?pageName=search&flag=true&PRODID=xprd1130877) as an example, but I'm sure there's more out there. Something that has everything I need to try it would be great since I don't know where to start.

NEW --Tackle Box(es)/Craft Storage Box I store my beads in them. Ones with dividers that can move and be resized are the best. I also like something like this (http://www.amazon.com/Plano-3650-Size-Tackle-Box/dp/B000E3FKTE) or this (http://www.amazon.com/Multi-Craft-System-Avocado-Purple-Handle/dp/B001170INU) that hold tools and other things in addition. I craft on my living room couch so I'm always taking things out and putting them away. It's a pain. Some sort of easily carted box would be very helpful. (Maybe something like this is available at a craft store with a 40/50% off coupon..? Oh, like this (http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?pageName=search&flag=true&PRODID=prd62102) maybe?)

NEW --Cricut Sure it's a silly wish but maybe someone has one they don't use anymore? That'd be cool!

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: frosty772 on March 23, 2011 12:28:52 PM
I am going to claim PFD for a camera case!!

This is my third claim
Two have been sent
Two have been received

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!!

Mediums (more can be found in my list  Grin)
~~Jewelry (chokers, bracelets, earrings but please no nickel posts)
~~Snood in a 40s style (prefer a crochet or knitted tie versus elastic (stays on better)
~~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  I am in need of a large school bag/tote!!  The strap on mine is starting to come loose.
~~Handwarmers like the ones offered at Hot Topic.com. Victorian Goth ones would be perfect.
~~Crazy Quilted Purse.  Or any purse made by you!!
~~Regency or Victorian era Reticule
~~Petticoat (cotton or cotton blend please) either knee or ankle length with some fullness to it as I like poufy skirts !! I actually wear these a lot!! (Im 5'5 email for length) (received one from farmgirljane and would love more!!)
~~I would love some soft wool socks!!  Size 7 feet
~~I have a weird obsession with knitted cuffs!! I love them!!  Chocolate brown, red, white, mustard yellow.

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.


SEWN

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

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

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

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

I would love some embroidered handkerchiefs. Monogrammed with my initials would be nice too!!

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

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

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.

Hand crafted candles are great too. Prefer either fruit and or spice scented ones or lavender (only floral scented one I like).  Im also interested in the scented candle chunks that you can melt and scent your house with.  I have received some but always appreciate more!!

Whimsey jar are really fun!!

Im loving the moon jars!!  Would love to have one!!

Im looking for a serving tray that I can bring snacks from the kitchen to the living room.  Asian or Victorian influence a real plus.  Ive seen some nice ones made from frames (glass removed)

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

Shower curtain.  Victorian style please!!

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

Books that teaches drawing as well as an art kit of some kind put together would be great.  My 12 year old loves to draw comic books!!

Handcrafted Jewelry with Victorian influence

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

Im looking for a table runner for our new table we recently purchased.  Looking for something, of course Victorian style as well.  Measurements can and will be provided.  Want something rich looking but affordable to make!!  Also looking for new fabric dinner napkins (18").
 
~~Supplies~~

Sewing items~~ Anything related to sewing is welcome!!  Trims, fabric, thread ect.(Gently used too)
Im also interested in any older sewing supplies as well from antiques stores and such (I have a tracing wheel i bought for $4 so they can be affordable).  Patterns (Burda Mag, Modern, Historic and Historic inspired too)!!  I need envelopes with a size 14 & 16 included in the envelope for dresses and tops and a 16 for skirts.  Thanks!!
Vogue~~ .. .2884...2968...1239 ... 8352...8003,,,v1178,,,v1172
Simplicity~~
McCalls~~

New or Unwanted Issues of Threads ( I have all of 2003 2006-2008 Though I dont have issues 137 or 138, 140  !!!) probably best to check with me on numbers!! and Burda World of Fashion Magazine !! (I have a few ...1/06** 7/03**4/05** 3/08**)  (used is fine) Knipmode, Ottobre, Patrones, La Mode

Magazines (new or used!!)  Gothic Lolita Bible Magazine, Beading and Jewelry making, Knitting and Crochet, Magazines from Somerset Studios.  Here is a link to their site and the magazines they offer http://www.stampington.com/html/main_magazines.html  Im especially looking for Haute Handbags!!!!   As well as cooking mags!!

Purse supplies of all sorts (handles, magnetic snaps, rings ect).  Silver Victorian clasps would be great too (can be found at Hancocks).  I desperately need some magnetic snaps!!

Scrapbooking items  (trims, paper, stickers anything!!).  Im also looking for some things like brads, ribbons, fancy paper, scissors.  Im also looking for corner punchers, rulers for making fancy torn edges and hole punchers (I have a heart one).  Also plain colored or white blank greeting type cards would be wonderful!! Good for now!!

Emphemra

Costume jewelry or broken pieces that can be recycled into new jewelry

I really really need some cub/boy scout related scrapbooking items such as paper, stickers ect!!!!

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

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

I claim lindyv321 for altered tank tops!

3/0/0

My name is Karen and I live in Austin, TX with my teenaged dd (who typically ends up with most of my swap items    ;D ;D), 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.

If you are doing a t-shirt, please not a men's or hanes or jerzees. Thanks!

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!!

:: About Me ::

* I live in PA currently with my hubby of 15 years and NONE of our 6 kids ! woooot, they all moved out finally ! and 2 goldfish that belong to our youngest granddaughter !
* In the next few months hubby and I are packing up the VW Bus ( my mini van ) and hitting the road to live in sunny FL
* I'm a huge football fan - love my Miami Dolphins
* 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 don't much care for animal prints, I do enjoy paisely prints, skulls, and of course dolphin prints or mermaid, sea themed prints - Hubby & I both love nature, some of our favorite animals are wolves, dolphins, manatees, opossums, arctic fox.
* 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

I claim Dawl for a charm bracelet with sea animal charms and blue/green beads and some address labels!

5th claim, 1 sent, 2 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!

I claim atsuko for a wrap skirt for Lana. :)

My fourth claim. 1 outstanding, 0 in transit, 2 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 tend to like things that are plainish and textured rather than very patterned. Some styles I particularly like are mid-century modern, Scandinavian, Japanese (but not kawaii). I usually like artsy-fartsy rather than cutesy :)

I don’t have allergies. I prefer natural fibres, but not exclusively. I’m happy to chat, and easy to please. *** for things I particularly want (if that's helpful), but I will be delighted with anything on the list!

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 (http://wists.com/jemimah/organisation) – box, bag, wallet, purse, organiser, etc. – always welcome
* protective folder to store artwork in – A4 or A3 would be great
* NEW cool/or fun/ or vintage-y/or modern pendants or brooches, in any medium - metal, fabric, polyclay. (I love jewellery and have a silly amount of it already, so I may use these for other creative purposes, e.g. embellishing purses, books, home decor things - so I wouldn't want anything terribly precious :))


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 tea cosy or coffee plunger cosy (thanks GuacaMolly :))– sewn (stencilled/appliqué/embroidered/whatever), rather than knitted. Simple, plain style great. Made from recycled felted wool would be cool too. I can send measurements. Themes:- for the tea cosy, “Cake or Death?” (Eddie Izzard quote); NEWDalek (I dream of one with a dalek saying ‘Insulate!’ in fact I might just have to make this myself :D); some sort of Star Trek or Dr Who theme
* 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 (http://wists.com/jemimah/organisation) (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 (http://wists.com/jemimah/book_cover) – to fit spiral-bound A3, A4, or A5, whichever size you feel like making.
* full apron – fun vintage-y style, or plain, durable fabric
* sewing ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/sewing)
* NEW awesome pot mitts - something amusing!
*** NEW a pincushion like this (http://www.wists.com/jemimah/d23cc9d31eee5bcd3c41a9c29dfa1047?offset=0)
*** NEW I really like this stationery organiser (http://wists.com/jemimah/sewing/7a3de0bd02f5ee63e43f29d5d7b0013b?offset=40)
* NEW fabric buckets (http://wists.com/jemimah/organisation/9c3338493a87d69975894bc48cb46e33?offset=0) are great! I like them quite big (grocery bag size, or even bigger), but you don't need to put interfacing or padding/batting in them, so they can fold up flat for easy posting. They don't need to be fancy, plain and sturdy is fine. Short handles are useful, but not essential.
*** NEW awesome brooches like this (http://wists.com/jemimah/3f2d6bebae40c42190eeeade44ccc0f3?offset=0), but saying "sewing machine", or "make it sew"

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!)
* 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 ...
* knitted slouchy hat – dull denim blue, dull greyish rose, chartreuse, or rich or dull red (not too orange-y or dark please) – 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=) – there are some smaller things like hats and mitts in there, and a couple of crochet things too.
*** it's getting colder here so fingerless mitts (http://www.ravelry.com/people/klgd/favorites?q=mitts&view=) have moved up my wishlist again! I like ones with thumbs rather than just thumb slits, but other than that I'm pretty flexible on styles. I particularly like cabled designs and Knucks.
* wisty things made of felt or felted wool (http://wists.com/jemimah/felt)
* NEW crochet granny square slippers (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/granny-square-slippers-2) - I like the colours in the first pic, but other colours are fine too.


PAPER RELATED
* 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
* stationery ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/stationery)


OTHER CRAFTS
* handmade ceramic item, esp. in celadon green (but any colours are good) ceramic ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/ceramics)
* 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. :) 
    (A few OWSers have sent me silk now, and I <3 it all! Thank you! I'm always happy to get more, as I do use it and love it so!)
* 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 (for needlebooks), natural coloured linen (just smallish pieces of fabric are fine; no bulk fabric – I’d love it, but it may bankrupt you to mail it) - there’s lots of fabric I like in my wist.
*** Noro yarn, other silk/luxury yarn, artisan 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 artist grade)
     - 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 eco felt available here (I have stacks of ordinary synthetic felt already though)
* bamboo DPNs and or circs (I have quite a few sizes in metal, but no bamboo)
*** 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, grosgrain
* blanks for pendants or brooches (not shiny gold though)
*** NEW nice/fun cotton fat quarters or fat eighths - the selection in the shops here is rubbish! There's heaps of wisted fabric I like (http://wists.com/jemimah/fabric) to give you some ideas


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  :)

Post by: mimiw on March 25, 2011 01:23:50 PM
I claim jemimah for a wisty surprise :)

This is my 8th claim with 0 sent and 7 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.   Really, I adore those 3 things so if you send something with any of those themes, chances are I will really like it.  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.  I am not huge on floral scents or anything too ruffle-y or frilly.  Also don't like scary themed items or religious items.


Crafts:

THIS (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5351454053/in/photostream/) with all different buttons rather than all the same.  Love it!!!!!!!

This quote (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=261832.msg2934980#msg2934980) done either similar to this or in your own special way!

Love this bird art! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50725941/caribbean-blue-and-white-bird-silhouette)  Doesn't need to be out of wood, any medium is great!

Shirred Top - ahem, nudge, nudge Dawl :)

8x10 black and white artwork of any utensils to hang in my kitchen.  A big spoon or fork would be great - or a spork!!

Button tree!! (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368904.0) Doesn't have to be just like this but something similar would be awesome!

Owl Pillow (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369019.msg4359794#msg4359794) but in green or blue instead of purple

A fun ring holder to hold my wedding ring that sits on my bathroom counter since I never wear it :)

More Tree art!! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/65851154/white-birch-forest-organic-wall-art-sale?ref=fp_treasury_4)

Coiled fabric bowl - blues, greens, browns, reds or turquiose.  LOVE  this  (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=371368.msg4436469#msg4436469) one!!!

How cute is THIS?!? (http://www.flickr.com/photos/keykalou/5401977707/)

Curtain Tie Backs similar to these (in red or brown) (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366649.0)

Paper roses or other flower (http://www.etsy.com/listing/68362880/paper-roses-repurposed-atlas-small-set) to stick in a vase

*Warning - ridiculous wish!!*  A felted basket similar to THIS (http://www.etsy.com/listing/10018354/kangaroo-basket-red-and-pink) in blues or greens or both.

*Warning - another huge wish!!* Something similar to THIS (http://www.etsy.com/listing/64144509/ready-to-ship-large-handmade-and-hand) designed to hang on the wall

Love these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/69045158/rustic-wood-flowers-set-of-twelve?ref=fp_treasury_6) wooden flowers!

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 (http://www.etsy.com/listing/67761835/personalized-train-quilted-toddler?ref=v1_other_1) (although I would prefer his name not be on it):

T shirts - size medium, or large if they are fitted.  Please no unisex or 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:

Im claiming mimiw for the button embroidery hoop that she loves and another surprize hoop one!

2nd claim, 1 in transit, 0 recieved

BRB with list

Hello!  I’m located in the United States.  No allergies for me.  Dear hubby has severe sinus issues but as long as things aren’t super perfumey or smokey then that’s fine.  Anyways, about me.  I’m the nerd of the whole family.  I dress with my own sense of style.  Think Harry Potter scarves, video game shirts, short plaid skirts, long boho skirts, knee high socks, & lots of tattoos.  I’m the one at all the family gatherings either crocheting/reading or playing video games.  I like anything Harry Potter, iguanas, tattoos, the old 80’s cartoons, reading, 1950s styles, video games, owls, koi, dragons, phoenixs, gryffins, squid & pirates.  Colors I like are black, burgundy/gold, purple/black, black/white, red/black/white, argyle & plaid.  Craft and theme wise I don’t like creepy or adult themed things, the colors orange/yellow or bright & pastel colors.

I’ve totally redone my wish list.  Some things were on my old one, but most everything is new.    

Crafted:

Post by: gamemom42 on March 26, 2011 02:46:38 PM
I claim missmoppet for supplies, including a med. jr. t-shirt for embroidering, small wooden hoops, small zippers, some Aida, and some surprises.

2/0/1

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 14 year old boy and 8 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:


Huge Wish   A book safe made from one of the classics, and old encyclopedia, or a book of poetry( maybe a damaged one or one of those really cheap ones you can get now)
  thanks, babalina58

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

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

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

cat tent that looks "piratey" or Arsenal themed ( actually prefer Arsenal themed but would be happy with either)

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)thanks babalina58

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 ( it's for someone who is only 5 ft. tall)

new  a pair of minions from Despicable Me

new  The throw pillow in the One Yard Wonders book that looks "scrunched up" with a big button in the middle in a sage green solid .  If you have the book and choose this, we can discuss the color in more detail

new  organic unscented goats milk lotion or body cream ( I have plenty of soap)

new  An altered or handmade journal for calorie counting to keep in my purse.  Probably no larger than 4x6.  I'd love it to be filled with a combination of postive quotes and images and realistic stats about obesity and maybe even "hard to look at" images of the effects of obesity on body image and health.  I know this is a pretty specific wish.  ( Oh, I certainly wouldn't want any pics of skinny young things considered I'm 47 and have no hope or intention of every being "skinny" again)

new  This wish may not even make sense, but here goes.  I expect that I'm going to start experiencing the joys of hot flashes, night sweats, and the like within the next two years.  Anything you can make to ease either the physical or the emotional trials of this grand adventure would be wonderful.



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 or weaving





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!

I claim gamemom 42 for some wisty surprises!!!!!!   ;D

2 claims 1 sent 0 received

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,

I do not like the color grass green, other shades such as sage, lime, yellow green are ok.

I claim quaggy for a crocheted cupcake scarf, a crocheted pot holder, and some crocheted fruit appliques.

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

Hello! My name's Diana and I'm from southern California.
I live with my husband of a little over 2 years, my chihuahua mixed dog Georgie and my rat terrier dog Sophie. I'm a part time domestic goddess, but a full time art geek. I go to a local community college and am a Graphic Design major. My favorite color scheme is pink-black-white. My favorite colors in order are pink, red, seafoam green, electric blue, and red-violet. I love polka dots, circles, argyle, and plaid. I also currently have an obsession with zebra stripes. I also love leopard print but in unnatural colors (I really dont like the orangey yellow and black spot). I have more info and links to my wist, facebook, etc on my profile.
For my boy dog, I love to see him in primary colors and anything you would typically associate with a little boy (like race cars, rocket ships, etc). He's typically a size "Small", but if you need any measurements I have them around here somewhere.
For my girl dog, I kind of like to dress her like i would dress myself lol lots of pink, black, white, red, and purple. Lots of patterns esp. stripes, zebra print and leopard print.
For my hubby, his favorite color combination is blue-black-white. He prefers solid colors, stripes, and minimal designs.

Allergy note: I have a wool sensitivity, mostly around sensitive areas like my neck and my forehead. I have extremely sensitive skin, so no soaps or lotions with a lot of chemicals/artificial ingredients. Hypoallergenic, home made, or organic skin products only. My hubby is allergic to cat hair, so please wash anything that might be in contact with a cat.

My favorite scents are Vanilla, Strawberry, and Citrus.

I claim DesignVigilante for a boxy pouch, a pocket mirror and maybe a little surprise or two!

 

2nd claim / 0 in transit /1 received

Hi, I'm Molly. :) I live in Oklahoma with my husband (April 10th will be our one year!) in an old 1920's home that he is tearing apart and remodeling. We have one fluffy kitty named Arthur. 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! My favorite colors are blues and greens, also daffodil and saffron yellow and pink--- especially deep fuschia or pink grapefruit and pinky 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 also like bright and vivid gypsy designs and colors. I'm in love with color, really. :)
 
I like nature (owls, birds, trees, water lilies, lotus blossoms), dots, cupcake/sweet themes, Hello Kitty, kawaii/Japanese and sweet vintage flower designs. I also really like Victorian, French and Art Nouveau themes.

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.

 
I do NOT like skulls, 80's, dark/morbid themes, super cutesy/granny crafts, animal prints, strong scents (headaches)
 
 
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, and thank you for claiming me. :)

 
Sewing
 
~ Hoopla/wall art that is owl or nature themed. My mom opened a shop called Owl Make It--- it needs lots of owly love!
 
~ Hoopla/wall art for my craft room-- some examples on my wists, or anything you think I'd like
 
~Thread catcher/pincushion combo
 
~Camera bag/pouch. I got a really nice digi camera for my birthday, and I keep meaning to make something nice and protective to carry it in! PM me for measurements. Maybe something like this but a little bit longer-- I would love a couple small pockets for my charger and USB cord, too. Maybe something like this? (http://ayumills.blogspot.com/2008/04/how-to-make-super-simple-camera-case.html)
 
~Ironing board cover in a fun fabric, standard size-- I don't need padding, just something to cover my interfacing infested one instead of the towel that is currently fused to it.
 
~Yoga pants or skirt, size Medium
 
~Yoga mat carrying bag (sewn, knit or crocheted would be great)
 
~A coupon organizer-- mine was cheapy cardboard, and it is falling apart!

~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 (http://www.etsy.com/listing/65754996/red-black-and-retro-checkbook-wallet) (don't like this fabric--lots of fabric examples in wists and etsy faves)
 
Crochet/Knit
 
~Yoga mat carrying bag

~Bolero/shrug in white, black or a random bright or jewel tone; surprise me! :) Only, I don't ever wear yellow that close to my face-- I am way too pinky fair skinned. PM me for measurements if needed. Love this one (http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=95&d_id=36&lang=en) and this one (http://www.knittingdaily.com/media/p/27943.aspx)
 
 
~Cupcake scarf (http://www.etsy.com/listing/70005484/crochet-cupcake-scarf-strawberry?ref=sr_gallery_37&ga_search_query=cupcake+scarf&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade)- Neopolitan is my fave, but I would be happy with any flavor!

Other/Misc
 
~Diochroic/fused glass earrings or pendants-- my mom loves the stuff (especially purples, greens, blues), and I would love a pair of stud earrings
 
~Jewelry stand/holder. I lovetrees (http://www.wists.com/guacaMolly/bcb64c97befae8d47a333e9d633b9bb8), but I think they would be difficult to make and expensive to ship! I also like this (http://www.etsy.com/listing/66502174/heritage-hanging-jewelry-organizer-in?ref=sr_gallery_32&ga_search_query=jewelry+stand&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade) idea, would be thrilled with your own interpretation, too. I mostly wear earrings
 
~Custom/ handcarved stamp that says The Chartreuse Lily -- text only, or with a water lily next to it. Or a lone water lily, or a cute owl.
 
~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. I really like Target's tissue tees in Medium, Old Navy in Medium, and I am great with upcycled/repurposed.
 
~Some kind of wall art that displays my husband's favorite Bible verse:
"The race is not to the swift
   or the battle to the strong,
nor does food come to the wise
   or wealth to the brilliant
   or favor to the learned;
but time and chance happen to them all. " Eccl. 9:11
 
~I would love for someone to give my little business a makeover! Even just the work for the images would be super. Etsy banner, avatar, business cards, fabric tags, jewelry cards out of cardstock, etc. It's The Chartreuse Lily, I would really like something pretty and classic in black and white, and then a chartreuse/bright yellow green lily or water lily.
 
~Something from my wists or wist inspired http://www.wists.com/guacamolly
 
~Something from or inspired by my etsy faves
http://www.etsy.com/people/chartreuselily/favorites?ref=si_fav

I claim Guacamolly for a supplies package- leather pieces, buttons, some other surprises!

3rd claim- 0 in transit, 0 received

Hi!  I’m Alicia!  I’m 22 and a chemistry grad student in Wisconsin (USA).  I live with my WoW head boyfriend and his crazy cat Jezebel.

Likes:  lots of color! (especially blues and greens), argyle, anything food or cooking related, sciencey things, using old, unloved things to make new, useful ones, wolves, video games (Luigi is my favorite!), BOOKS (fantasy FTW), faeries, Ireland, and RPG’s (World of Darkness specifically)
 
Dislikes:  super pink and cutesy or death/goth things (somewhere in the middle is generally good).  Other than that, the sky is the limit!  I’m pretty easy to please, and no allergies! 
 
Crafts
 
**A handmade clasp (safety pin type or otherwise) for a cloak I’ve made.  It’s an open cloak (think Lord of the Rings) in a dark teal color.  It would be the only ornamentation on there, so you could go as complicated as you want with it, but I would want any metal to be silver.
 
**A D20 dice bag like   this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=322077.msg3714609#msg3714609)
Could be any colors or fabrics, this one's just an example!

Wool socks-knitted, crocheted, made from felted sweaters, whatever!- (US women’s size 10).  I live in WI.  Warm socks are a must. ;D

A book locket necklace!  I’ve seen several different kinds of these, and loved them all!
 
A shirt with “No power in the ‘verse can stop me” from Serenity stenciled on it.  Can be however you want to do it except for cutesy. Women’s M for a regular tshirt (“juniors” shirts are way too short on me), if it runs tight/short – then L.  (Long sleeve shirts are good too!)

Homemade lotions/body butters- I have eczema, so anything with dry skin love would be great (please no soap though, full up on that at the moment!)

**Something World of Warcraft related for the bf.  He plays an Alliance Dranei Shaman, and would love something with his totem on it. 

**Thick oven mitts, any color or pattern. Extra long would be extra awesome!  Somehow these always get destroyed at my house…  Thanks Maurer!

Amigurumis of Mario or Bowser.  I got Luigi and my bf thinks we should have a whole set!

Very simple braided wire ring, with or without a small stone/bead.  Either size 9 for a thumb ring or size 7 for a regular ring.  My favorite example is on my wist.

Cute herbal sachets- anything that smells good, but lavender is my absolute favorite!

Handmade blank cards for putting into swap packages in any of my themes or colors

A “neck warmer” or other circle scarf. (example on my wist)  I want it to cover my mouth and nose so it would need to be fairly tall. – Thanks edie!

**I would love a lunch bag in any of my themes, big enough to hold a midsize Tupperware.  Lined with oilcloth/vinyl/something washable would be especially good.

A tabletop ironing mat.  I have a mini ironing board, but these seems like they’d be so much easier!

Tie-dyed anything!  Clothing especially, but if you incorporate it into something else you make for me, I’m sure to love that too!

*new*  Reusable cloth pads, and if you were feeling ambitious I'd love a wet bag to keep them in as well!

*new* Some sort of handmade journal/blank book.  I would be using it as a planner, so the pages could be left completely plain on the inside.

Anything related to:  Good Eats, Back to the Future, or the Tenth Kingdom
 
My wist is not very big yet, but anything off of, or just vaguely inspired by, the things on there would be great!  I love surprises, so anything that you think I would like or that you love to make, go for it!
 
Craft Supplies – I totally support reusing supplies, so used is always more than okay!
 
** Latchhook yarn in any color other than white, black, or browns.  A mixture of all of them would actually be best, so if you have leftover/unused from a latchhook kit, I would love you forever!
 
** Regular yarn! Anything non-scratchy would be great, please no novelty yarns.  Handspun obviously would be epic!

**Fiskars 45mm rotary cutter replacement blades

Tailor’s chalk (preferably white, but any color would be good)

Clear quilter’s ruler

Water-soluble fabric markers

Small gemstone chips/beads (no particular preference on type, just think they would be fun to try out!)

Corset boning

Sewing patterns of stylish women’s clothing or any fantasy-type costumes: need to have size US 10/12/14 (not all of them, just somewhere in the range, I’m never quite sure which size I am!)

Books (as always, used is fine): Sew Serendipity, The Feisty Stitcher, a beginner amigurumi book

A small shelf with lots of compartments to make a whimsy display

I know this is kind of ridiculous, but if someone has an old serger they don’t use anymore, I would give it a good home!  Even if it’s an old one from someone’s grandma, I would be your best friend!  (I would also pay you for the shipping costs too!)

A simple key stamp (handmade or storebought).  I am looking to make a surcoat like this (http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2010/353/1/5/sabriel_costume_by_leludallas-d357l14.png)

A plain black zip up hoodie, size men’s large.

A small scrapbook (don’t really care what kind)  with a kelly green cover.

A cut of soft grey fabric-I’m thinking jersey, but anything soft would do to serve as the base for a Ninentdo controller body pillow
 
An 8 x 11 canvas

*new*  Steampunk bits and bobbles for making costume parts (watch pieces, etc)

*new*  Fabric- plain cuts large enough to make clothing in things like wool, linen, nice cottons.  I have lots of crazy polyester prints, but I want to make some nice classic basics. 

*new*  Magnetic purse closures-I would only need a few, I'm a recovering purseaholic and try to only make a purse every now and then.

*new*  Any sewing (not quilting) magazines you would want to get rid of, especially Threads and BurdaStyle!

Extras

Tea (non-herbal) or hot chocolate
Kitty Treats
Any of your favorite recipes (especially if you make delicious ethnic foods)!!

Thanks in advance to whoever makes my wish come true!!

Claiming fishstix43 for a supplies surprise   

2nd claim/0 sent/0 received

I live in New Hampshire (USA) in an old house in the country with my two teen-aged sons and two cats.  It's a small house so things that are functional or useful as well as decorative are good, and smaller is usually better than larger.  I like 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), mechanical gadgets, Victoriana and natural history as in steampunkery are good and favorite colors are earth-, sea-, or nature-tones (sea glass colors, jewel tones and milk paint colors).  Designs that include birds, animals, insects, trees, rocks…realistic rather than cutesy.  Steam trains, 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, blank 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.

Hello!  I’m located in the United States.  No allergies for me.  Dear hubby has severe sinus issues but as long as things aren’t super perfumey or smokey then that’s fine.  Anyways, about me.  I’m the nerd of the whole family.  I dress with my own sense of style.  Think Harry Potter scarves, video game shirts, short plaid skirts, long boho skirts, knee high socks, & lots of tattoos.  I’m the one at all the family gatherings either crocheting/reading or playing video games.  I like anything Harry Potter, iguanas, tattoos, the old 80’s cartoons, reading, 1950s styles, video games, owls, koi, dragons, phoenixs, gryffins, squid & pirates.  Colors I like are black, burgundy/gold, purple/black, black/white, red/black/white, argyle & plaid.  Craft and theme wise I don’t like creepy or adult themed things, the colors orange/yellow or bright & pastel colors.

I’ve totally redone my wish list.  Some things were on my old one, but most everything is new.  As always, crafted items are fun, but all supply packages of supplies are appreciated as well!

I claim missmoppet for a supplies surprise!

1st claim 0/0/0

Hello!  I'm 31, and I'm a bartender in Oklahoma City, OK. My favorite colors are blues, greens, and any other ocean-y colors.  I also like black, brown, pink, red -- really anything but most oranges or yellows. I love reading supernatural, fantasy, fairy tale genres and the like. Both my boyfriend and I love Phish and are mildly addicted to World of Warcraft. My style is a mix influenced by punk, nerdy things, and whatever strikes me on a particular day. I only wear t-shirts and jeans to work, so I do whatever I want in that arena. I have really long hair, so I am in constant need of new hair accessories. I wear a lot of pigtails, so I like smaller things in twos, but I also wear larger single pieces.  I love Piscean things and bar-related things (beer, bar glassware, etc.), video games, especially original Nintendo stuff, witchy and magical things, the moon, fish, skulls, Toulous-Lautrec, vintage music instruments and equipment, pin-ups, goddess mythology, and if you need any more info, please send me a PM.


Crafts:

**V-neck t-shirt (womens/juniors/fitted-style large) decorated with one of my likes, preferably in black or a dark color that liquid spills won't show up on too badly

**Necklaces (see Wist for examples and also here are some links)
-https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=357683.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=357683.0)
-I adore every one of these pendants https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=353181.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=353181.0)
**Tree of Life Pendant

**Zipper pouch (I really need 2-3 of these, so I'll probably leave it up even if it's claimed.)
-I love the attached ring on this one https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=357581.0  (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=357581.0)

**Small zipper pouch (around 3"x4" or so and maybe padded?) to use as a camera case

**Wrist Cuff (I'll try to add some examples soon)

**Any clothing decorated with one of my likes (PM for sizing)

**Hair Accessories (except any kind of headband because they hurt my head...) Here are some examples of things I like:
-Even the rings on this post would make great hairclips https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=362650.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=362650.0)
-https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=360591.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=360591.0)
-https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=353181.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=353181.0)

**Homemade bath products: lotions, soaps, perfumes (solid or liquid), lip gloss/balm.  Scents I love are chocolate, fruits (strawberry, citrus, apple), sage, cucumber, green tea, chai, mint, eucalyptus...

**Handmade scented candles.  Candle scents I love are chocolate, hazelnut, strawberry, blueberry, mulberry, cranberry, raspberry, sage, rice flower, fresia, green tea, chai, mint, eucalyptus...

**A pair of pajama pants for my SO (I'm thinking just a standard men's large), who loves penguins, dragons/wizards/fantasy stuff, video games and the band Phish. I could make them, but he doesn't really understand the whole craft swap thing, so I thought he could be introduced best this way...

**A journal of any kind (lined or unlined pages) and 5x7-ish or bigger

**A small purse, maybe like 4x6-ish, with a long strap can wear like a messenger bag, preferably black with a design or something. I want something I can wear hands-free to hold only my keys, money, ID, etc., when I go out.

**Tabletop ironing mat with insulation enough to protect what is under it

**Handmade journal

**Something from my WIST http://www.wists.com/redpopsicles (http://www.wists.com/redpopsicles)
**Something from my ETSY faves http://www.etsy.com/people/redpopsicles/favorites?ref=si_fav (http://www.etsy.com/people/redpopsicles/favorites?ref=si_fav)

Supplies:

**Iron-on transfer pens in any and all colors, but especially white

**Dried herbs for use in soaps, bath sachets, incense, etc.

**White cotton v-neck or crewneck t-shirts (men's small or large, women's large or XL) that will be tie-dyed.

**Handspun or hand-dyed yarn

**Hair accessory blanks (either the bobby pin kind with the blank disc or the larger alligator kind that snap closed with a crimp on the bottom side, if you know what I'm talking about there...)

**Buttons - any colors, shapes, novelty, etc. (especially skulls, anchors, stars, horseshoes, mushrooms. stuff like that)

**Felt in any color or pattern

**E-6000 glue

**YUDU ink

**Flocked iron-on letters

**Embroidery thread

**Matchboxes (for matchbox shrines)

**Small embroidery hoops (6" and under)

**Beginner's resin how-to kit

**Flat blank canvases (5"x7" or smaller) or gessoboard (any size)

Extras:

**4 miniature Rubix Cubes (I know it's kinda out-there, but I have this vision in my head and I have no idea where to get these little guys)

I claim redpopsicles for zipper pouches

This is my 9th claim with 0 sent and 7 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.   Really, I adore those 3 things so if you send something with any of those themes, chances are I will really like it.  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.  I am not huge on floral scents or anything too ruffle-y or frilly.  Also don't like scary themed items or religious items.


Crafts:

THIS (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5351454053/in/photostream/) with all different buttons rather than all the same.  Love it!!!!!!!

This quote (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=261832.msg2934980#msg2934980) done either similar to this or in your own special way!

Love this bird art! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50725941/caribbean-blue-and-white-bird-silhouette)  Doesn't need to be out of wood, any medium is great!

Shirred Top - ahem, nudge, nudge Dawl :)

8x10 black and white artwork of any utensils to hang in my kitchen.  A big spoon or fork would be great - or a spork!!

Button tree!! (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368904.0) Doesn't have to be just like this but something similar would be awesome!

Owl Pillow (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369019.msg4359794#msg4359794) but in green or blue instead of purple

A fun ring holder to hold my wedding ring that sits on my bathroom counter since I never wear it :)

More Tree art!! (http://www.etsy.com/listing/65851154/white-birch-forest-organic-wall-art-sale?ref=fp_treasury_4)

Coiled fabric bowl - blues, greens, browns, reds or turquiose.  LOVE  this  (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=371368.msg4436469#msg4436469) one!!!

How cute is THIS?!? (http://www.flickr.com/photos/keykalou/5401977707/)

*Warning - another huge wish!!* Something similar to THIS (http://www.etsy.com/listing/64144509/ready-to-ship-large-handmade-and-hand) designed to hang on the wall

Love these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/69045158/rustic-wood-flowers-set-of-twelve?ref=fp_treasury_6) wooden flowers!

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 (http://www.etsy.com/listing/67761835/personalized-train-quilted-toddler?ref=v1_other_1) (although I would prefer his name not be on it):

T shirts - size medium, or large if they are fitted.  Please no unisex or 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:

Fun pajama pants or shorts - size medium

Magazine Holders

Octopus surprise!!  No stuffies though please :)

Hooded towel that looks like a shark for my 2 year old

Funky wind chime or whimsy collection to hang out by the pool - we have covered areas too so it doesn't have to be totally weatherproof

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

I claim Mimiw for a felted basket like this one  (http://www.etsy.com/listing/10018354/kangaroo-basket-red-and-pink)

This is my 2nd Claim, 0 sent, 0 received

Hello! My name's Diana and I'm from southern California.
I live with my husband of a little over 2 years, my chihuahua mixed dog Georgie and my rat terrier dog Sophie. I'm a part time domestic goddess, but a full time art geek. I go to a local community college and am a Graphic Design major. My favorite color scheme is pink-black-white. My favorite colors in order are pink, red, seafoam green, electric blue, and red-violet. I love polka dots, circles, argyle, and plaid. I also currently have an obsession with zebra stripes. I also love leopard print but in unnatural colors (I really dont like the orangey yellow and black spot). I have more info and links to my wist, facebook, etc on my profile.
For my boy dog, I love to see him in primary colors and anything you would typically associate with a little boy (like race cars, rocket ships, etc). He's typically a size "Small", but if you need any measurements I have them around here somewhere.
For my girl dog, I kind of like to dress her like i would dress myself lol lots of pink, black, white, red, and purple. Lots of patterns esp. stripes, zebra print and leopard print.
For my hubby, his favorite color combination is blue-black-white. He prefers solid colors, stripes, and minimal designs.

Allergy note: I have a wool sensitivity, mostly around sensitive areas like my neck and my forehead. I have extremely sensitive skin, so no soaps or lotions with a lot of chemicals/artificial ingredients. Hypoallergenic, home made, or organic skin products only. My hubby is allergic to cat hair, so please wash anything that might be in contact with a cat.

My favorite scents are Vanilla, Strawberry, and Citrus.

I claim DesignVigilante for some HOOPLA!  ;D

BRB with list

4th claim, 0 in transit, 1 received

Hello!  I’m located in the United States.  No allergies for me.  Dear hubby has severe sinus issues but as long as things aren’t super perfumey or smokey then that’s fine.  Anyways, about me.  I’m the nerd of the whole family.  I dress with my own sense of style.  Think Harry Potter scarves, video game shirts, short plaid skirts, long boho skirts, knee high socks, & lots of tattoos.  I’m the one at all the family gatherings either crocheting/reading or playing video games.  I like anything Harry Potter, iguanas, tattoos, the old 80’s cartoons, reading, 1950s styles, video games, owls, koi, dragons, phoenixs, gryffins, squid & pirates.  Colors I like are black, burgundy/gold, purple/black, black/white, red/black/white, argyle & plaid.  Craft and theme wise I don’t like creepy or adult themed things, the colors orange/yellow or bright & pastel colors.

I’ve totally redone my wish list.  Some things were on my old one, but most everything is new.

URGENT! From PhoenixFireDesign's LJ --

Quote
I went into the er yesterday. I had been having extreme pain in my lower abdomen on both sides since Friday. By Sunday it got so bad I had to go to the er in desperete pain. Here all night with tests. Turns out I am going to need surgery. I have two fibroids in my uturus the size of baseballs (exact quote from doctor) and two cycts as large too. They are apparently at the point where you can feel them through the skin and they’re so big it’s causing blinding pain and need to be removed. Most likely on wednesday I will have laproscopic surgery to remove my utarus. The on/gyn says I will still have my ovaries so no menapause but also no more periods ever. And of course no pregnancy ever.


Right now I’m just exhauseted. Got to the hospital around 5:30pm Sunday up all night with tests and then got admitted around 5-6am. Slept fitfully because it’s very noisy so it’s all still a surreal haze.

Can anyone reading this do me two favors? First pass the info on; I can’t easily post on message boards and stuff from my touch. (I have swaps due this weekend but obviously not in a position to get them out for example)

And two: please send good thoughts,prayers, energy whatever you call it. This is terrifying and I’ve never had major surgery like this before. To say I’m scared is an understatement.

IF anyone needs to reach her, you can PM me - I'll be in regular contact with her via email and/or text messages.
