IMPORTANT: Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0 this is a great tip for being a great swapper and the link to all swap rules are there too :)

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 70!!
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 70.

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. 4/1/1 = 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 discretion, others are allowed 2 wishes again as per the org dis..  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish at a time until your crafts are received for this month.  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 or poor communication etc!!
Do not choose over your given limit.

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***

we have had in the past a few swappers think it is OK to toss some crap in a box and ship it. This is NOT the swap for you as this is a HIGH QUALITY crafting swap!!


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, pintrests, 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 time 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 You should be able to see lite for 20-30 dollars if in an etsy type store 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!

Pay close att. to your partners allergies and wishes IF you send something that is on the list of allergies, etc you WILL be required to send again! No argument on this we cant have anymore of the swappers PM that they got something that is clearly in their list of things they HATE and or have allergies of.....

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 can and or 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
If the threads stall too long the orgs can claim to get it moving again but try not to however.


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!

You must have your wish list saved in your computer before you make any claims as to not stall the thread :)

I’m Rachel, I’m 22 and I like in the UK. I’m 32 weeks pregnant with my first baby and me and my fiancé are in the process of buying our first house have just bought our first house . I love anything punky, retro or Kitsch. I adore polkadots, stripes and owls. I’m always reading (currently the wheel of time series) sewing and playing video games. I also enjoy rock climbing and kayaking but I’ve had to put those on hold for a while until bumps here.
We are planning to have a Nintendo themed nursery but the rest of our house will be pretty neutral with bright accessories.

Pre-loved stuff is fine Smiley

I claim redstar for some fabric, I have great skulls fabrics I think you will love :)

1,0,0

My name is Casey and I live in Southern Colorado with my love and our 3 furbabies (dogs). It’s a drastic change from the sunny San Diego I grew up in but love it here nonetheless. I will officially be a college graduate May 7th and am an animal welfare officer for the Humane Society (love my job). We like rustic style, like a little whimsy county. I have an awkward love for old red barns.

I love aqua, teal, chocolate brown, the color combo of ocean blue and beige for house stuff. I also like aqua, red and white together and aqua yellow and white. I enjoy the outdoors, animal rescue, reading, rough housing with my little family, pretending to clean my craft room, coffee, the scent of baked goods, mixing hippie style with a little rock, the San Diego Chargers and peppermint hot cocoa.

I claim redstar13 for A Plush skeleton (or skull)

I saw one on your wist that my daughter has been begging for me to buy mats for us to make it for her.

1/0/0


About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, and frogs.

I love cross stitch and embroidery and I have a huge wall set aside for hoops. It has had many beautiful additions from swapping, but there is a ton of room left to fill.

I pretend I know how to sew and my sewing is improving thanks to some of my past partners linking wonderful tutorials to items they want.

I am a huge fan of Firefly/Serenity, steampunk, the color blue in all shades.

I'm trying to make our house feel something like a beach cottage (even tho we are about 30 minute drive from the Chesapeake bay) but the house has more of an overstuffed, cluttered, lived in feel.

I claim SciFunk for felted nesting bowls! And possibly something else.

This is my first claim for this round.

I am 21 and I just graduated from college with a BA in English like, three weeks ago. I currently live in Virginia Beach, VA (USA). I'm moving into my own place with my boyfriend this summer, so house/apartment stuff is appreciated! My style is pretty haphazard--I never coordinate anything, so my decorating style is whatever I like, all cobbled together. I love bold prints and art deco and fun colors, but I'm not a fan of pink or orange. I love dark colors, like maroon and navy. I knit like a fiend (almost constantly) and also crochet, sew, spin, and dabble in paper craft and jewelry. I have cats and a dog at home, and they all stay out of my crafting supplies. I don't have any allergies. PM with any questions!

** = really want

Crafts:


-   Framed art (drawing, painting, embroidery... anything really.), Castle, Bones, grammar, knitting, Futurama (but not Bender cause I have lots of Bender art), or Battlestar Galactica-themed would all be awesome, as well as various generic snark, hilarity, or pretty-ness. I have some favorite quotes too, so pm if you want more specifics. I also just recently started watching Stargate Atlantis (I'm on season five), so non-spoilery art (especially of McKay) would be awesome.
- Pretty much anything related to the Whedonverse (Buffy/Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse). T-shirts, pillows, art, anything. I'm hopelessly obsessed.
- Ceramic mugs/bowls/dishes. Pottery is one craft I know I'll probably not get the chance to do, so I love looking at other people's.
- A nice handbag. There are a couple of examples of my style on my wists. Something fairly plain in shape in a solid color or fun print. Fairly large (I carry everything with me), messenger style,  crossbody strap, lots of pockets.
-   Handspun yarn
-   Shawl pins/brooches.
-   Cloth Napkins (I have a couple and I'd like to have a lot. Cotton or polyester is fine
-   Dangely earrings or pendant necklaces. There are examples on my wists.
- Hoopla hoops. I want to start a wall.
**  A corset-backed garter belt
- Mostly anything on my wists, but I'd prefer to know more specifically cause there's some stuff on there I wisted but could do without (the t-shirts, mostly)
** a thin, long-sleeved cardigan (like made from a t-shirt cut up the middle or whatever). Possibly decorated!
** a crinoline/petticoat
-  Headbands (the hard grippy ones. I prefer simple and understated to big and bold).
- This poster: http://pinterest.com/pin/13848749/
- Summer skirts (pm for sizes), a-line, elastic waist
- Wide belt, preferably stretchy
- Covered tape measure


Supplies

**  Embroidery hoops
-   Roving/Top for spinning (combed or carded; locks would be fine too)
-   Large buttons, preferably in sets of at least four.
-   Yarn (natural fibers only, please), especially greens (like, forest or kelly) and blues or neutrals, any weight. Recycled yarn (from sweaters) is great and I'm looking for about 1200 yards dk linen/cotton for a dress. If you find a large (like XL) linen/cotton/wool sweater with crocheted seams (NOT surged), go ahead and send the sweater and I'll undo it myself. : ) (Any color)
-   Thread (any color)
-  Tapestry needles. I am ALWAYS losing them.
-   Machine sewing needles (I go through them so quickly) regular, but also leather/denim.
**   Kool-Aid/dye for yarn/roving
**   Awesome fabric--abstract/geometric prints, swirls, Amy Butler-esque, or linen. I love linen. (Linen-look cotton is also great)
-   Resin kit
-   Purse handles (especially longish ones)/frames
-  Felt (acrylic or wool, I don't mind either)
-  Easy sewing patterns—simple blouses, skirts, and shorts. I'd love a simple shirt dress. I'm a US size 2 or 3 but please pm for more exact measurements.
-  Headbands—the hard grippy ones. For decorating.
-  Embroidery floss, especially metallic. Also, perle cotton.
-  Tatting supplies. I have some thread, but I'd love a little how-to kit. I'd love to learn.
-  Steampunk ephemera--gears, bits for jewelry making or paper crafting, buttons, etc.
-  Elastic, both half inch ish (for skirts) and the kind with the holes in that you can thread ribbon through (for making garters)
-  Alligator clips

Extras

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

I claim ifallthraindrops for a wist inspired set of cusion/pillow covers.

1/0/0

Hi all, My Name is Elaine, I live in New South Wales, Australia. I am a SAHM with 2 beautiful girls aged 1 and 3 years old and a hard working husband.  I really enjoy crafting and love the swapping element of craftster. My favourite colours are purple, silver, navy blue, kaki green (But not actual kaki!) and dark browns. I have had a bit more of a liking of pinks since I’ve had my two girls! I like Celtic and Scottish stuff (my heritage), historical/ archaeological stuff, cooking, reading, red dwarf, funky fitted t-shirts, gardening, my favourite animal is a lady bug. I prefer not to receive items that are gold, neon, of religious nature, explicit, foul language or nudity thank you. We have no allergies, but prefer if your crafts to arrive smoke and pet hair free – but as long as you smoke away from your craft and you don’t let your pets sit on your knitting then we should be ok!

Crafts:
•    Pintrest  I’ve recently started using Pintrest  (http://pintrest.com/nilmerg) for my wish list. I love how you can separate the categories.
•   Wooden door plaque’s with my girls names on them. Maybe something like Jennilocker made for this FOC Wist swap: door plaque  (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=353172.180)
•    Purple inchies  that I can frame and hang on the wall. I have a huge frame that I ‘m hoping to fill….. eventually.
•   Fitted t-shirt for me with cool printed/appliqued design– I’m an Australian size 14 on top (which I believe is a US size 12 or a UK size 14). I quite like this  tree of life t-shirt  (http://www.etsy.com/listing/49933404/tree-of-life-t-shirt?ref=sr_gallery_20&ga_search_query=tree+of+life&ga_search_type=&ga_page=&order=&includes%5B0%5D=tags&includes%5B1%5D=title)  More examples [url/]http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/for-me/] here[/url] but I’m open to any design.
•   Clothes for my girls – I love anything that is a bit different to what all the other kids are wearing – we only have one decent clothes shop in town, so most kids own the same clothes around here! Let me know if you fancy this one and what measurements you might need. Oh and it’s winter here at the moment. We don’t really wear pretty dresses much, would prefer more every day clothes. I’m happy with recycled clothing that you have modified or embellished as long as it is good quality, in decent condition and clean.
•   Earrings – I usually wear silver (type) stud earrings – no danglies. When I was younger, you could pick up pretty cheaply a huge assortment of earrings – spiders, pot leaves(!), elephants, flowers etc. I would love some new ones as many of mine are nearly 15 years old! They don’t need to be pairs as I usually wear odd earrings anyway! Here (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/jewlery-items/) are some examples on my pintrest.
•   Incense holder (that catches the ash) and incense (I like nag champa). Doesn’t have to be as fancy as the one I’ve linked, but I do like  this one!  (http://thecrookedpath.net/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=117_118&products_id=1018)  
•   An Embroidery hoopla – Here (http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k97/nilmerg5/craftster/IMG_1316.jpg) is a link to a picture of my small hoopla wall. I would love more to add to it. I have quite a few pined onto my ’hoopla likes’ board on Pintrest  (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/hoopla-likes/)
•   Some polymer clay topped sewing pins to use to hang hoops onto my hoopla wall. There are examples on several of the boards on my Pintrest  (http://pintrest.com/nilmerg)
•   Pendants – I am always wearing a pendant  type necklace on a just longer than choker length black thong. I have quite a collection which has grown nicely since I’ve started swapping on craftster, but I always need more. Anything goes, although not too big and I would ALWAYS choose silver over gold. (doesn’t have to be real silver, I’m not allergic to anything). I really like the  glass pendants  (http://www.wists.com/nilmerg/a9e9cfd1499a312ac77a518bc377ea49) that Dawl makes. And have loads of other examples here  (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/jewlery-items/)
•   Crochet Mary Jane style slippers – size 7-8 us. 5-6 UK or  39 Europe. Something like this  (http://pinterest.com/pin/18235102/)
•   ‘I solemnly swear that I am up to no good’ bracelet I love  this  (http://www.etsy.com/listing/56915153/i-solemnly-swear-that-i-am-up-to-no-good?ref=sr_gallery_1&ga_search_query=harry+potter&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=5&order=&includes%5B0%5D=tags&includes%5B1%5D=title) silver bracelet, If as silver type metal is too expensive, I wonder if it could be stamped onto a black leather bracelet?
•    A Messenger bag for everyday use. Some examples are on my sewn items pintrest board (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/sewn-items/)
•   Fold away shopping bags Lots of examples in my sewn items pintrest board (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/sewn-items/) I hate plastic bags so anything that I can carry around to save picking up more of the dam things would be great.
•   Notebook cover - I'd love something Tesha Moore style preferably an A6 spiral bound (spiral on the side not top) notebook, but A5 would be ok if A6 is too small. I love the random attention to detail needed for this type of work and just don't have the randomness required to make it myself. This (http://pinterest.com/pin/18239759/) is an example I like.

Craft supplies
•   I have started making inchies and I have a black and a brown sharpie, but would love a set of sharpies in other colours or even just some individual sharpies.
•   A Dark brown ink pad for the edges of my inchies (I have black and various shades of purple already).
•   Basic set of Watercolour paints for inchie use!
•   2.5” fussy cut squares for an eye spy quilt – I need lots of them still! Or scraps with identifiable objects that I can cut down to 2.5” squares.
•   Some machine or hand embroidered images or numbers or letters on 2.5” squares that I can incorporate into my eye-spy quilt. (remember that 0.5 inches will be lost into the seam all the way around)
•   Fat quarters of quilting fabric Particularly tone on tone fabric. So for example say Blue with blue swirls or green with green spots. (to go between the fussy cut squares and for the backing – I don’t want plain, but don’t want to distract too much from the I-spy game either)
•   Any other quilting fabrics you have to offer – even reasonable sized scraps as I do quite a bit of applique. Patterns or plains, neat or scrappy, anything goes when it comes to my stash!
•   Any buttons as many as you can spare, odd or not. Large, small, any colour is great, even plain work shirt buttons.
•   Empty Janome bobbins clear plastic (not metal) Not sure it makes much difference, but my machine is a DC3018  example  (http://www.scrapdragon.com.au/picture.asp?PictureID=2689911)
•   Machine sewing needles I get through them quite quickly. Regular is fine. My machine is detailed above (not that that makes any difference I think!)
•   Sewing thread I use Gutterman threads. Any brand is fine as long as it is good quality. Black, White, light grey or whatever you have is good. (even if they have been used a bit!)
•   Any small toys or identifiable items that would be suitable for putting into I-spy bags – good condition used items are fine.
•   DMC embroidery thread. Any colours would be great, but Black and white are always useful! I’d love more of a selection of the metallics and the variegated too.
•   Embroidery Hoops I always have a hoop on the go either for myself, a friend or a fellow crafter. I get through lots of hoops! I use mostly 6”, but would also be interested in receiving smaller hoops 2, 3 or 4”.


Other things / extras
•   If there is space in the parcel, I wouldn’t turn down some yummy treats! I love mint chocolates!!!!! And always enjoy trying something that you can’t get in the UK or Australia.
•   I have a supplies and extra’s board on my pintrest here (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/supplies-and-extras/) which shows some of my favourite things to eat!!! ;)
•   A favourite recipe (my recipe file is an A4 folder)
•   A favourite photograph, 6x4 is fine.

I claim Nilmerg for purple inchies and some supplies

2,0,0

My name is Casey and I live in Southern Colorado with my love and our 3 furbabies (dogs). It’s a drastic change from the sunny San Diego I grew up in but love it here nonetheless. I will officially be a college graduate May 7th and am an animal welfare officer for the Humane Society (love my job). We like rustic style, like a little whimsy county. I have an awkward love for old red barns.

I love aqua, teal, chocolate brown, the color combo of ocean blue and beige for house stuff. I also like aqua, red and white together and aqua yellow and white. I enjoy the outdoors, animal rescue, reading, rough housing with my little family, pretending to clean my craft room, coffee, the scent of baked goods, mixing hippie style with a little rock, the San Diego Chargers and peppermint hot cocoa.

2/0/0


About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, and frogs.

I love cross stitch and embroidery and I have a huge wall set aside for hoops. It has had many beautiful additions from swapping, but there is a ton of room left to fill.

I pretend I know how to sew and my sewing is improving thanks to some of my past partners linking wonderful tutorials to items they want.

I am a huge fan of Firefly/Serenity, steampunk, the color blue in all shades.

I'm trying to make our house feel something like a beach cottage (even tho we are about 30 minute drive from the Chesapeake bay) but the house has more of an overstuffed, cluttered, lived in feel.

 I will claim A2K for a shirt for her and maybe a few more depends on time but if not some supplies to go with :)

1/0/0

Hello all, I am Monica your org and love this swap so so much. I am a really strong lady who just is a bull by the horn girl. I am really blessed to have great friends here as my DH says My BFF in the box :) I have to say I am trying to convert my home to as much homemade craftiness as I can it makes me happy. I love so may things and my home is so fun and different in each room really. I am a surfer ocean girl. We live at the beach on the Crystal Coast the last bank of the famed Outer Banks of North Carolina. I love pink and girly but some edgy too. I am an ride it fast kind of girl. I drive my motorcycle year round. Have a beautiful Mustang and we are leasing ( who knew huh) a Horse. I love to ride and love the ocean. We are teaching the kids to ride and Atlanta to surf How fun. She is a beach bum really they both are. They love to fish and hunt ( shhhh she sits in the woods with me and looks at the animals) only time she shuts up LOL...
  
We have 2 beautiful grandkids that my DH and I are raising.
Atlanta is a fun 6 year old. Smart beyond her years when it comes to witty and artistic and then Houston ...He will be 3 on MAY 13th . He is a sweet boy who loves his "LOLLY" that's me..I am their Lolly. ( I am too young and fun to be called grandma). He is a special child that was blessed to have teach us so much compassion and love. He has Autism and cant for some odd reason deal with Kelly/Crayon green...not in M&M's or Lego's nothing at all....He hates to shop but loves to help carry in the bags and cries if he does not feel like he is being helpful  :'( I always have a bag to carry in. They both love to garden. He is so happy there and at the beach. The only places I think he is like everyone else and his brain is at peace :)

We have some Allergies in the house...Atlanta has a lung illness like asthma. She cant be around the sticky tar stuff from cigarettes. If you smoke inside pass on claiming us. If you smoke outdoors make sure to please wash your hands and supplies well to not have issues.

Atlanta is on a special diet now :( she has tumors and cant have any candy or goodies so please dont send them to the kids..I can still have some Kender bars however I dont share them I hide and savor them ;)



I have a huge pintrest so if there is something there you want to make that is not on the list here shoot me a PM I am sure I want it LOL!!
Nothing off the kids pintrest however :)

Title: OWS 71
Post by: Lady Pistola on June 07, 2011 07:29:19 PM
I'm going to claim babalina for something from her pinterest...its huge! I have a lot of inspiration! :)

1/0/0


My name's Crystal, I live in Florida! I'm a homemaker and a mother and a singer and a crafter! My style is more classic/femenine than anything else. I love simple, clean lines, and love things that are calming. The decor in my house is beachy colors: beiges, whites, light blues, etc...but I'm trying to add a bit more color to my life! :)  I would really love some interesting throw pillows for my couch...in interesting colors, textures, and prints! I love Amy Butler style fabric and color combinations...I love smart stripes, I love chevron stripes, I love flowers and ruffles...oh and I love silhouettes!  Any questions? Just ask!

Crafts:

1. Swiffer covers-color is of no importance. I have just the sweeper, not the wet jet. I dont know if this makes a difference or not. I would imagine terry cloth would be a good fabric to use? But I don't know! I just know I hate buying the refills as I go through them so quickly!

2.  Anthropologie inspired necklaces- I'm pretty much in love with the Citrus Twist one.
http://tinyurl.com/3jaxc6s

3. Decorated short sleeved shirts, size 18 months for a boy. Themes could include Dinosaurs, Yo Gabba Gabba, UFC, Beach/Surfing, Fish/fishing, sharks, (sea creatures) The Giving Tree, Cars, Robots, Skulls, etc. Maybe something for 4th of July? Anything cute for a boy. Not into anything too cutesy like Teddy Bears, Clowns, pastels, etc.
Or if you can sew: beachy short sleeved button up shirts with collars...in fun fabrics!

4.pillow covers in bold, modern prints in rich colors for my couch. I also love texture! I think they're 18 inch square, but PM me if interested and I'll get accurate measurements.
I love everything in this shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/WillaSkyeHome?page=1
and I love these 'textured' ones:
http://www.designfor4.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/rose-pillow.jpg

http://d30opm7hsgivgh.cloudfront.net/upload/9497490_hGpB6XmA_b.jpg

5. Coiled Fabric coasters in beiges, whites, tans, etc. Something very neutral
example: http://www.flickr.com/photos/klosti/4843284887/

6. A pretty frilly/girly apron
example: http://simplesong.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2008/03/26/paper_source_apron.jpg

7. A cool necktie for an 18 month old. Can be clip on or regular, no matter. Cool funky or modern prints welcome.
example: http://ny-image1.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.225870173.jpg

8. med-Large Purse, like an overnight bag, in a pretty, fun, fabric, with lots of pockets
example: (maybe not THAT huge!)  http://ny-image3.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.242051387.jpg

9.  Superhero cape for little boy-PM for length measurements…he's just a little guy!
example: http://thelongthread.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/cape.jpg
with an M, or lightning bolt, or star, or whatever symbol on the back.

10. Armband for my Old Ipod Nano. Not the new one. the OLD model.

11. Wist Inspired Something

12. Sexy/fun lingerie or pasties…any color, any fun embellishment: Fur, Rhinestone, Tassels, Lace, Ribbon, Fringe…..just something FUN!

13. Reusable food storage bags made of ripstop material: Small and large "gallon" size. Doesn't have to be cute or fancy. Just plain ripstop material, any color.

14. Casual, cotton or jersey skirts, prefer A-line, and knee length or longer.  Elastic is fine for the waist or PM for measurements if you wanna put in a zipper. Fun, pretty, whimsical patterns or solids are fine. I love pockets, but not necessary. Just for fun, casual, everyday wear.

15.  Cute Headbands…Gossip Girl inspired, or fun cotton ones

16. Beige/neutral colored yoga socks (the kind with no heel or toe areas) size med/large ish

Supplies
1. Jewelry Making Kit-I've never made real jewelry before, so I have nothing to get me started and don't really know HOW to get started.

2. Designer fabric-Michael Miller, Amy Butler, Alexander Henry, etc even half a yard would be nice!

3. Baking supplies: Bags, tips, edible markers, pans, candy molds, cupcake liners, candy sticks, small fondant 'cookie' cutters, etc

4. Designer looking Fat Quarters

5. Zippers in various colors and sizes. (to make zippered pouches in many sizes)

6. Large self healing mat to use with a rotary cutter

7. Fabric Markers

8. Pinking Shears

9. Sewing Gauge

10. Easy sew patterns for maxi or shift dresses, easy a-line skirts, little boy pants, boy neckties…not picky. I'm just learning how to sew, so anything easy would be great!

11. E-6000. Can never have too much of this stuff.

12. Elastic: 1/2 inch thick or thicker

13. Foam or Straw Wreath forms, any size is fine

14. 1-1/2 inch wide satin or cotton ribbon in a solid color: Brown, Blue, Mustard, Rust, Olive, Ivory: really, any color is fine. Would like at least 25 yards, 50 would be even better!

15. Solid colored sheets in decent condition

16. Cricut cartridges


Extra/Misc.
1. Yummy herbal tea-love loose leaf in interesting flavors

2. Interesting candy or chocolate-especially if it's unique to your country or region

3. Bubbles! My son loves them and goes through them like crazy!

4. Shhh! I just found out I'm pregnant: Haven't told the hubby yet, waiting til Father's Day! But I'm feeling queasy, so I'm also requesting Ginger Candy, Ginger/ginger blend teas, those little anti-nausea candy/suckers...you get the idea!

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!!

I claim frosty772 for a wisty surprise and possibly some supplies!

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 (chemistry especially of course), 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.  Also, the color orange (it’s fine in small amounts, just don’t generally like it as the main color) and no allergies here! 
 
Crafts
 
**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 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. 

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!

**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.  The bigger, the better!

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

**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.

Stitch markers for crochet, but not the keyring (split ring?) type – either lobster clasps or open fishhook type hook.  Anything in my colors or themes for the actual dangly bits!

A votive holder like this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129482.0).  Nightmare Before Christmas just like this would be great, or something cool from one of my other themes.

Anything related to:  Good Eats, Back to the Future, or the Tenth Kingdom
 
Anything from my pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/fishstix43) would be loved, as well as anything inspired by the things on there, or my likes, or really anything you just love to make! 

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! I’ve started learning to make amigurumi as well, so smaller balls would be fine too!

**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

Sewing patterns of stylish women’s clothing or any fantasy-type costumes: pattern size is approximately 16
-Especially looking for an A-line style dress that would look good in a large polyester polka dot fabric (note:  I have a size E chest, so need lots of coverage there)

Books (as always, used is fine): Sew Serendipity, The Feisty Stitcher, Amigurumi Two! or Amigurumi Toy Box

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

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 small scrapbook (somewhere around like 8 x8”?)  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 Nintendo controller body pillow
 
An 8 x 11 canvas

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. 

Any sewing (not quilting) magazines you would want to get rid of, especially Threads and BurdaStyle (the one in English)

Serger thread!  I got a Brother 1034D with my tax return and need to start collecting thread for it.  Basics like black and white would be nice, but if you need to destash colors I would use those too!

The Renaissance Flowers and Leaves Cloak Clasp from Twin Roses Designs

Cotton clothesline/cord to make fabric bowls with.  This stuff goes like water, so I will take absolutely as much as you want to send me!

About 3 yards of St. Louis Cardinals fabric, something appropriate to make scrubs out of (aka not fleece)

Extras

Energy/granola bars (store bought or homemade)
Kitty treats
Any of your favorite recipes (especially if you make delicious ethnic foods)!!

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

I am so happy to be able to claim A2K!!

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, and frogs.

I love cross stitch and embroidery and I have a huge wall set aside for hoops. It has had many beautiful additions from swapping, but there is a ton of room left to fill.

I pretend I know how to sew and my sewing is improving thanks to some of my past partners linking wonderful tutorials to items they want.

I am a huge fan of Firefly/Serenity, steampunk, the color blue in all shades.

I'm trying to make our house feel something like a beach cottage (even tho we are about 30 minute drive from the Chesapeake bay) but the house has more of an overstuffed, cluttered, lived in feel.

I claim Averia for fingerless gloves!

This is my Claim 1, 0 in progress, 0 Rec'd

About me –
Hello all,
I am a senior at a university in Portland, OR majoring in elementary education.  I live in Vancouver, Washington (United States) the rest of the year and I love everything about the Pacific Northwest; the rain, the trees, the green, the atmosphere, everything, and I love items inspired by the life here (nature etc).
I haven’t swapped in over half a year because of said school, and I’m ecstatic to get back into it.
I’m soon to move into my new apartment with some friends. Our themes are:
Kitchen – coffee and browns
Living room – vintage Hollywood glamour, deep red
Bedroom – mod, vintage, orange, floral.
I am a vegetarian so I don't want to receive any leather, but I don't mind receiving wool.
My favorite things to do are read and craft. My favorite crafts to do are crochet, sew (but my machine is currently out of commission), paper crafts, and jewelry making.
If you make me something pumpkin orange (like autumn/spicey/non-neon orange) I’ll love you forever. Besides pumpkin orange, I love almost all colors (not high-lighter shades or hunting orange) especially jewel tones, mustaches, trees, plants, leaves, flowers, coffee, peacock feathers, skeleton keys, books, poppies, honeybees/bumblebees (Melissa in Greek), chrysanthemums, dahlias, peonies, (I love bold florals), labradorite, the 1920's, Andy Warhol, sea glass, pearl, shells, Nancy Drew and Mario.
I love when people make me something that is their take on a theme inspiration.

Thanks for picking me!

Hi! My name is Xandria, and I'm a college student from Albany, NY. Some stuff about me:
• I'm studying to be an American  Sign Language Interpreter.

I claim padfoot for the twilight themed book pillow.  let's see if I can pull that off.

1/0/0


About Me: I'm 35, married and live with my husband in South Florida. We don't have any kids or pets and don't really plan on them, and recent events have shown me that this was a great idea.  I love coffee, anything with blue stripes, Star Trek and anything related to Chris Pine. I like polka dots and stripes and cute things and Carnival Bloom fabric!! I love the colors pink and blue and pretty much all colors, but I love blue and brown together and pink and brown. Also Pink/green and brown/pink/ green. I am going on vacation in September and I'm trying now to collect things for that.  Fabric luggage tags (my luggage is hot pink!) and tshirts to wear while I'm gone.  I'm going to DragonCon a SciFi convention, so geeky shirts would be awesome. I've switched all of my wists to pinterest because its so much easier and sounds like one of my favorite words ever.

I love Star Trek, Harry Potter, Twilight, Whedonverse... I'm pretty easy to please.

Hello all, I am Monica your org and love this swap so so much. I am a really strong lady who just is a bull by the horn girl. I am really blessed to have great friends here as my DH says My BFF in the box :) I have to say I am trying to convert my home to as much homemade craftiness as I can it makes me happy. I love so may things and my home is so fun and different in each room really. I am a surfer ocean girl( will be on a board again when I get my knee replaced. We live at the beach on the Crystal Coast the last bank of the famed Outer Banks of North Carolina. I love pink and girly but some edgy too. I am an ride it fast kind of girl. I drive my motorcycle year round. I love to ride and love the ocean. We are teaching the kids to ride and Atlanta to surf How fun. She is a beach bum really they both are. They love to fish and hunt ( shhhh she sits in the woods with me and looks at the animals) only time she shuts up LOL...

I am into clean lines I guess as to messy, I cant stand things looking cluttered or things that are tossed together looking in my house, hair etc everything is just right before we leave the house LOL Odd I know makeup to the beach and even hunting..Odd ball huh....
  
We have 2 beautiful grandkids that my DH and I are raising.
Atlanta is a fun 6 year old. Smart beyond her years when it comes to witty and artistic and then Houston ...He was 3 on MAY 13th . He is a sweet boy who loves his "LOLLY" that's me..I am their Lolly. ( I am too young and fun to be called grandma). He is a special child that was blessed to have teach us so much compassion and love. He has Autism and cant for some odd reason deal with Kelly/Crayon green...not in M&M's or Lego's nothing at all....He hates to shop but loves to help carry in the bags and cries if he does not feel like he is being helpful  :'( I always have a bag to carry in. They both love to garden. He is so happy there and at the beach. The only places I think he is like everyone else and his brain is at peace :)

We have some Allergies in the house...Atlanta has a lung illness like asthma. She cant be around the sticky tar stuff from cigarettes. If you smoke inside pass on claiming us. If you smoke outdoors make sure to please wash your hands and supplies well to not have issues.

Atlanta is on a special diet now :( she has tumors and cant have any candy or goodies so please dont send them to the kids..I can still have some Kender bars however I dont share them I hide and savor them ;)



I have a huge pintrest so if there is something there you want to make that is not on the list here shoot me a PM I am sure I want it LOL!! Please not anything from the kids pins however :)

 I will claim you back :) for some Disney Princess Barrettes, the 3 pillow cases and I have LOL something I made your girls long ago I ran across I will throw in for your trip :)

3/0/0

Hello all, I am Monica your org and love this swap so so much. I am a really strong lady who just is a bull by the horn girl. I am really blessed to have great friends here as my DH says My BFF in the box :) I have to say I am trying to convert my home to as much homemade craftiness as I can it makes me happy. I love so may things and my home is so fun and different in each room really. I am a surfer ocean girl( will be on a board again when I get my knee replaced. We live at the beach on the Crystal Coast the last bank of the famed Outer Banks of North Carolina. I love pink and girly but some edgy too. I am an ride it fast kind of girl. I drive my motorcycle year round. I love to ride and love the ocean. We are teaching the kids to ride and Atlanta to surf How fun. She is a beach bum really they both are. They love to fish and hunt ( shhhh she sits in the woods with me and looks at the animals) only time she shuts up LOL...

I am into clean lines I guess as to messy, I cant stand things looking cluttered or things that are tossed together looking in my house, hair etc everything is just right before we leave the house LOL Odd I know makeup to the beach and even hunting..Odd ball huh....
  
We have 2 beautiful grandkids that my DH and I are raising.
Atlanta is a fun 6 year old. Smart beyond her years when it comes to witty and artistic and then Houston ...He was 3 on MAY 13th . He is a sweet boy who loves his "LOLLY" that's me..I am their Lolly. ( I am too young and fun to be called grandma). He is a special child that was blessed to have teach us so much compassion and love. He has Autism and cant for some odd reason deal with Kelly/Crayon green...not in M&M's or Lego's nothing at all....He hates to shop but loves to help carry in the bags and cries if he does not feel like he is being helpful  :'( I always have a bag to carry in. They both love to garden. He is so happy there and at the beach. The only places I think he is like everyone else and his brain is at peace :)

We have some Allergies in the house...Atlanta has a lung illness like asthma. She cant be around the sticky tar stuff from cigarettes. If you smoke inside pass on claiming us. If you smoke outdoors make sure to please wash your hands and supplies well to not have issues.

Atlanta is on a special diet now :( she has tumors and cant have any candy or goodies so please dont send them to the kids..I can still have some Kender bars however I dont share them I hide and savor them ;)



I have a huge pintrest so if there is something there you want to make that is not on the list here shoot me a PM I am sure I want it LOL!! Please not anything from the kids pins however :)

I claim Babalina for a hoop off her pinterest

2/0/0

About Me: I'm 35, married and live with my husband in South Florida. We don't have any kids or pets and don't really plan on them, and recent events have shown me that this was a great idea.  I love coffee, anything with blue stripes, Star Trek and anything related to Chris Pine. I like polka dots and stripes and cute things and Carnival Bloom fabric!! I love the colors pink and blue and pretty much all colors, but I love blue and brown together and pink and brown. Also Pink/green and brown/pink/ green. I am going on vacation in September and I'm trying now to collect things for that.  Fabric luggage tags (my luggage is hot pink!) and tshirts to wear while I'm gone.  I'm going to DragonCon a SciFi convention, so geeky shirts would be awesome. I've switched all of my wists to pinterest because its so much easier and sounds like one of my favorite words ever.

I love Star Trek, Harry Potter, Twilight, Whedonverse... I'm pretty easy to please.

1st claim/0/0

This is a newly updated list and big wishes are in purple

Hi, I am Lindy I am 30, live in Phoenix , AZ, and have two kids who are 10 and 6.  We don’t have any allergies.  We have two cats and 3 dogs in our home and I used to be an outdoor smoker but I quit!
   
Themes that I love are tattoos, butterflies, turtles, Alice in Wonderland (Disney or original), Stars, cupcakes/sweets, Winnie the Pooh, 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 my 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 love books and read all the time (well when I have time) I love anthropology and native inspired art (specifically northwest coast – I LOVE the raven images from the kuakutl!) I like pin up girls and pirates. I love Jane Austen and Johnny Cash.  have a great appreciation for star wars things that do not seem like star wars....See, I’m a bit eclectic.

I claim redstar13 for some handspun yarn!

This is my fourth claim this round (4 claims, 1 received, 2 in transit)

Hi!  I'm addicted to knitting (A2K), though I love many other crafts as well!  A Michigan (USA) native, I am enamored of watery landscapes and northern hardwood forests.  My deepest wish is to live on a lake or river.  I love snow and wintery landscapes, cool colors and corny humor.  I love superheroes and mourn the fact that I’m fat and 50 – superhero material beyond repair.  ☺  I wist.    

Enough about me:  

Crafted Items


Diet friendly treats (low sugar, low fat) YUM (http://recipes.health.com/recipes/10000001733006-fudgy-cream-cheese-brownies), yum yum (http://recipes.health.com/recipes/10000001732859-chocolate-peppermint-cookies), gotta try these! (http://www.dietsinreview.com/recipes/roccos-brownies/)

 AND these  (http://www.etsy.com/listing/65657158/journal-handbound)

poly clay decorated tacks

decorated clothespins (http://www.etsy.com/listing/75363909/decorated-clothes-pins-clothes-pegs?ref=pr_shop)

handcrafted buttons, especially wood

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

muppets pencil toppers - here's the bracelet that inspired this idea: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=228448.0

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

Placemats - woven, patchwork, quilted! (many on my wist)

Potholders, kitchen towels, scrubbies

Hand-crafted batik fabrics

This is a newly updated list and big wishes are in purple

Hi, I am Lindy I am 30, live in Phoenix , AZ, and have two kids who are 10 and 6.  We don’t have any allergies.  We have two cats and 3 dogs in our home and I used to be an outdoor smoker but I quit!
   
Themes that I love are tattoos, butterflies, turtles, Alice in Wonderland (Disney or original), Stars, cupcakes/sweets, Winnie the Pooh, 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 my 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 claim lindyv321 for A pinterest surprise

4th claim/0 sent/1 received


About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, and frogs.

I love cross stitch and embroidery and I have a huge wall set aside for hoops. It has had many beautiful additions from swapping, but there is a ton of room left to fill.

I pretend I know how to sew and my sewing is improving thanks to some of my past partners linking wonderful tutorials to items they want.

I am a huge fan of Firefly/Serenity, steampunk, the color blue in all shades.

I'm trying to make our house feel something like a beach cottage (even tho we are about 30 minute drive from the Chesapeake bay) but the house has more of an overstuffed, cluttered, lived in feel.

I claim Averia for a Patchy mug rug

2nd claim/ 1 sent / 0 recieved

Hi all, My Name is Elaine, I live in New South Wales, Australia. I am a SAHM with 2 beautiful girls aged 1 and 3 years old and a hard working husband.  I really enjoy crafting and love the swapping element of craftster. My favourite colours are purple, silver, navy blue, kaki green (But not actual kaki!) and dark browns. I like Celtic and Scottish stuff (my heritage), historical/ archaeological stuff, cooking, reading, red dwarf, funky fitted t-shirts, gardening, my favourite animal is a lady bug. I prefer not to receive items that are gold, neon, of religious nature, explicit, foul language or nudity thank you. We have no allergies, but prefer if your crafts to arrive smoke and pet hair free – but as long as you smoke away from your craft and you don’t let your pets sit on your knitting then we should be ok!
Crafts:
•    Pintrest  I’ve recently started using Pintrest  (http://pintrest.com/nilmerg) for my wish list. I love how you can separate the categories.
•   Wooden door plaque’s with my girls names on them. Maybe something like Jennilocker made for this FOC Wist swap: door plaque  (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=353172.180)
•    Purple inchies  that I can frame and hang on the wall. I have a huge frame that I ‘m hoping to fill….. eventually. Thank you Casey1201 - can't wait to see what you come up with.
•   Fitted t-shirt for me with cool printed/appliqued design– I’m an Australian size 14 on top (which I believe is a US size 12 or a UK size 14). I quite like this  tree of life t-shirt  (http://www.etsy.com/listing/49933404/tree-of-life-t-shirt?ref=sr_gallery_20&ga_search_query=tree+of+life&ga_search_type=&ga_page=&order=&includes%5B0%5D=tags&includes%5B1%5D=title)  More examples [url/]http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/for-me/] here[/url] but I’m open to any design.
•   Clothes for my girls – I love anything that is a bit different to what all the other kids are wearing – we only have one decent clothes shop in town, so most kids own the same clothes around here! Let me know if you fancy this one and what measurements you might need. Oh and it’s winter here at the moment. We don’t really wear pretty dresses much, would prefer more every day clothes. I’m happy with recycled clothing that you have modified or embellished as long as it is good quality, in decent condition and clean.
•   Earrings – I usually wear silver (type) stud earrings – no danglies. When I was younger, you could pick up pretty cheaply a huge assortment of earrings – spiders, pot leaves(!), elephants, flowers etc. I would love some new ones as many of mine are nearly 15 years old! They don’t need to be pairs as I usually wear odd earrings anyway! [http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/jewlery-items/]Here[/url] are some examples on my pintrest.
•   Incense holder (that catches the ash) and incense (I like nag champa). Doesn’t have to be as fancy as the one I’ve linked, but I do like  this one!  (http://thecrookedpath.net/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=117_118&products_id=1018)  
•   An Embroidery hoopla – Here (http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k97/nilmerg5/craftster/IMG_1316.jpg) is a link to a picture of my small hoopla wall. I would love more to add to it. I have quite a few pined onto my ’hoopla likes’ board on Pintrest  (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/hoopla-likes/)
•   Some polymer clay topped sewing pins to use to hang hoops onto my hoopla wall. There are examples on several of the boards on my Pintrest  (http://pintrest.com/nilmerg)
•   Pendants – I am always wearing a pendant  type necklace on a just longer than choker length black thong. I have quite a collection which has grown nicely since I’ve started swapping on craftster, but I always need more. Anything goes, although not too big and I would ALWAYS choose silver over gold. (doesn’t have to be real silver, I’m not allergic to anything). I really like the  glass pendants  (http://www.wists.com/nilmerg/a9e9cfd1499a312ac77a518bc377ea49) that Dawl makes. And have loads of other examples here  (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/jewlery-items/)
•   Crochet Mary Jane style slippers – size 7-8 us. 5-6 UK or  39 Europe. Something like this  (http://pinterest.com/pin/18235102/)
•   ‘I solemnly swear that I am up to no good’ bracelet I love  this  (http://www.etsy.com/listing/56915153/i-solemnly-swear-that-i-am-up-to-no-good?ref=sr_gallery_1&ga_search_query=harry+potter&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=5&order=&includes%5B0%5D=tags&includes%5B1%5D=title) silver bracelet, If as silver type metal is too expensive, I wonder if it could be stamped onto a black leather bracelet?
•    A Messenger bag for everyday use. Some examples are on my sewn items pintrest board (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/sewn-items/)
•   Fold away shopping bags Lots of examples in mysewn items pintrest board]  (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/sewn-items/) I hate plastic bags so anything that I can carry around to save picking up more of the dam things would be great.
•   Notebook cover - I'd love something Tesha Moore style preferably an A6 spiral bound (spiral on the side not top) notebook, but A5 would be ok if A6 is too small. I love the random attention to detail needed for this type of work and just don't have the randomness required to make it myself. This (http://pinterest.com/pin/18239759/) is an example I like.

Craft supplies
•   I have started making inchies and I have a black and a brown sharpie, but would love a set of sharpies in other colours or even just some individual sharpies.
•   A Dark brown ink pad for the edges of my inchies (I have black and various shades of purple already).
•   Basic set of Watercolour paints for inchie use!
•   2.5” fussy cut squares for an eye spy quilt – I need lots of them still! Or scraps with identifiable objects that I can cut down to 2.5” squares.
•   Some machine or hand embroidered images or numbers or letters on 2.5” squares that I can incorporate into my eye-spy quilt. (remember that 0.5 inches will be lost into the seam all the way around)
•   Fat quarters of quilting fabric Particularly tone on tone fabric. So for example say Blue with blue swirls or green with green spots. (to go between the fussy cut squares and for the backing – I don’t want plain, but don’t want to distract too much from the I-spy game either)
•   Any other quilting fabrics you have to offer – even reasonable sized scraps as I do quite a bit of applique. Patterns or plains, neat or scrappy, anything goes when it comes to my stash!
•   Any buttons as many as you can spare, odd or not. Large, small, any colour is great, even plain work shirt buttons.
•   Empty Janome bobbins clear plastic (not metal) Not sure it makes much difference, but my machine is a DC3018  example  (http://www.scrapdragon.com.au/picture.asp?PictureID=2689911)
•   Machine sewing needles I get through them quite quickly. Regular is fine. My machine is detailed above (not that that makes any difference I think!)
•   Sewing thread I use Gutterman threads. Any brand is fine as long as it is good quality. Black, White, light grey or whatever you have is good.
•   Any small toys or identifiable items that would be suitable for putting into I-spy bags – good condition used items are fine.
•   DMC embroidery thread. Any colours would be great, but Black and white are always useful! I’d love more of a selection of the metallics and the variegated too.
•   Embroidery Hoops I always have a hoop on the go either for myself, a friend or a fellow crafter. I get through lots of hoops! I use mostly 6”, but would also be interested in receiving smaller hoops 2, 3 or 4”.


Other things / extras
•   If there is space in the parcel, I wouldn’t turn down some yummy treats! I love mint chocolates!!!!! And always enjoy trying something that you can’t get in the UK or Australia.
•   I have a supplies and extra’s board on my pintrest here (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/supplies-and-extras/) which shows some of my favourite things to eat!!! ;)
•   A favourite recipe (my recipe file is an A4 folder)
•   A favourite photograph, 6x4 is fine.

 I will claim to get this moving again :) For a pintrest surprise ( will update later with what claiming for when I figure it out totally

Hello all, I am Monica your org and love this swap so so much. I am a really strong lady who just is a bull by the horn girl. I am really blessed to have great friends here as my DH says My BFF in the box :) I have to say I am trying to convert my home to as much homemade craftiness as I can it makes me happy. I love so may things and my home is so fun and different in each room really. I am a surfer ocean girl( will be on a board again when I get my knee replaced. We live at the beach on the Crystal Coast the last bank of the famed Outer Banks of North Carolina. I love pink and girly but some edgy too. I am an ride it fast kind of girl. I drive my motorcycle year round. I love to ride and love the ocean. We are teaching the kids to ride and Atlanta to surf How fun. She is a beach bum really they both are. They love to fish and hunt ( shhhh she sits in the woods with me and looks at the animals) only time she shuts up LOL...

I am into clean lines I guess as to messy, I cant stand things looking cluttered or things that are tossed together looking in my house, hair etc everything is just right before we leave the house LOL Odd I know makeup to the beach and even hunting..Odd ball huh....
   
We have 2 beautiful grandkids that my DH and I are raising.
Atlanta is a fun 6 year old. Smart beyond her years when it comes to witty and artistic and then Houston ...He was 3 on MAY 13th . He is a sweet boy who loves his "LOLLY" that's me..I am their Lolly. ( I am too young and fun to be called grandma). He is a special child that was blessed to have teach us so much compassion and love. He has Autism and cant for some odd reason deal with Kelly/Crayon green...not in M&M's or Lego's nothing at all....He hates to shop but loves to help carry in the bags and cries if he does not feel like he is being helpful  :'( I always have a bag to carry in. They both love to garden. He is so happy there and at the beach. The only places I think he is like everyone else and his brain is at peace :)

We have some Allergies in the house...Atlanta has a lung illness like asthma. She cant be around the sticky tar stuff from cigarettes. If you smoke inside pass on claiming us. If you smoke outdoors make sure to please wash your hands and supplies well to not have issues.

Atlanta is on a special diet now :( she has tumors and cant have any candy or goodies so please dont send them to the kids..I can still have some Kender bars however I dont share them I hide and savor them ;)



I have a huge pintrest so if there is something there you want to make that is not on the list here shoot me a PM I am sure I want it LOL!! Please not anything from the kids pins however :)

I claim Babalina58 for an embroidered scoopneck tee (the cute dragon one) - My turn to stall the swap for a couple of days again!

This is my 3rd claim/1 in transit / 0 recieved

Hi all, My Name is Elaine, I live in New South Wales, Australia. I am a SAHM with 2 beautiful girls aged 1 and 3 years old and a hard working husband.  I really enjoy crafting and love the swapping element of craftster. My favourite colours are purple, silver, navy blue, kaki green (But not actual kaki!) and dark browns. I like Celtic and Scottish stuff (my heritage), historical/ archaeological stuff, cooking, reading, red dwarf, funky fitted t-shirts, veggie gardening, my favourite animal is a lady bug. I prefer not to receive items that are gold, neon, of religious nature, explicit, foul language or nudity thank you. We have no allergies, but prefer if your crafts to arrive smoke and pet hair free – but as long as you smoke away from your craft and you don’t let your pets sit on your knitting then we should be ok!
Be careful what you post to Australia, Quarantine are quite strict, particularly with animal products and plant matter: http://www.daff.gov.au/aqis/mail/cant-mail (http://www.daff.gov.au/aqis/mail/cant-mail)

Crafts:
•    Pintrest  I’ve recently started using Pintrest  (http://pintrest.com/nilmerg) for my wish list. I love how you can separate the categories. I add to it almost daily and there are things to make in pretty much every category.
•   Wooden door plaque’s with my girls names on them. Maybe something like Jennilocker made for this FOC Wist swap: door plaque  (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=353172.180)
•    Purple inchies  that I can frame and hang on the wall. I have a huge frame that I ‘m hoping to fill….. eventually. Thank you Casey1201 - can't wait to see what you come up with.
•   Fitted t-shirt for me with cool printed/appliqued design– I’m an Australian size 14 on top (which I believe is a US size 12 or a UK size 14). I quite like this  tree of life t-shirt  (http://www.etsy.com/listing/49933404/tree-of-life-t-shirt?ref=sr_gallery_20&ga_search_query=tree+of+life&ga_search_type=&ga_page=&order=&includes%5B0%5D=tags&includes%5B1%5D=title)  More examples [url/]http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/for-me/] here[/url] but I’m open to any design.
•   Clothes for my girls – I love anything that is a bit different to what all the other kids are wearing – we only have one decent clothes shop in town, so most kids own the same clothes around here! Let me know if you fancy this one and what measurements you might need. Oh and it’s winter here at the moment. We don’t really wear pretty dresses much, would prefer more every day clothes. I’m happy with recycled clothing that you have modified or embellished as long as it is good quality, in decent condition and clean.
•   Earrings – I usually wear silver (type) stud earrings – no danglies. When I was younger, you could pick up pretty cheaply a huge assortment of earrings – spiders, pot leaves(!), elephants, flowers etc. I would love some new ones as many of mine are nearly 15 years old! They don’t need to be pairs as I usually wear odd earrings anyway! Here (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/jewlery-items/) are some examples on my pintrest.
•   An Embroidery hoopla – Here (http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k97/nilmerg5/craftster/IMG_1316.jpg) is a link to a picture of my small hoopla wall. I would love more to add to it. I have quite a few pined onto my ’hoopla likes’ board on Pintrest  (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/hoopla-likes/)
•   Some polymer clay topped sewing pins to use to hang hoops onto my hoopla wall. There are examples on several of the boards on my Pintrest  (http://pintrest.com/nilmerg)
•   Pendants – I am always wearing a pendant  type necklace on a just longer than choker length black thong. I have quite a collection which has grown nicely since I’ve started swapping on craftster, but I always need more. Anything goes, although not too big and I would ALWAYS choose silver over gold. (doesn’t have to be real silver, I’m not allergic to anything). I really like the  glass pendants  (http://www.wists.com/nilmerg/a9e9cfd1499a312ac77a518bc377ea49) that Dawl makes. And have loads of other examples here  (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/jewlery-items/)
•   Crochet Mary Jane style slippers – size 7-8 us. 5-6 UK or  39 Europe. Something like this  (http://pinterest.com/pin/18235102/)
•   ‘I solemnly swear that I am up to no good’ bracelet I love  this  (http://www.etsy.com/listing/56915153/i-solemnly-swear-that-i-am-up-to-no-good?ref=sr_gallery_1&ga_search_query=harry+potter&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=5&order=&includes%5B0%5D=tags&includes%5B1%5D=title) silver bracelet, If as silver type metal is too expensive, I wonder if it could be stamped onto a black leather bracelet?
•    A Messenger bag for everyday use. Some examples are on my sewn items pintrest board (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/sewn-items/)
•   Fold away shopping bags Lots of examples in mysewn items pintrest board]  (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/sewn-items/) I hate plastic bags so anything that I can carry around to save picking up more of the dam things would be great.
•   Notebook cover - I'd love something Tesha Moore style preferably an A6 spiral bound (spiral on the side not top) notebook, but A5 would be ok if A6 is too small. I love the random attention to detail needed for this type of work and just don't have the randomness required to make it myself. This (http://pinterest.com/pin/18239759/) is an example I like.
•   *NEW ITEM* A sewing machine apron / tidy. I really need to have some sort of detachable (for easy emptying) bin for my threads, somewhere to put pins as I remove them from them from my sewing, and somewhere to put my scisors - I'm always loosing them mid project. I'd like it to sit under my machine, It doesn't need to have a weight to keep it on the table. There are a couple of examples on my pintrest (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/sewn-items/).
•   *NEW ITEM* An embroidery hoop project bag/folder Example here on my Pintrest here (http://pinterest.com/pin/44452167/)

Craft supplies
•   I have started making inchies and I have a black and a brown sharpie, but would love a set of sharpies in other colours or even just some individual sharpies.
•   A Dark brown ink pad for the edges of my inchies (I have black and various shades of purple already).
•   Basic set of Watercolour paints for inchie use!
•   2.5” fussy cut squares for an eye spy quilt – I need lots of them still! Or scraps with identifiable objects that I can cut down to 2.5” squares.
•   Some machine or hand embroidered images or numbers or letters on 2.5” squares that I can incorporate into my eye-spy quilt. (remember that 0.5 inches will be lost into the seam all the way around)
•   Fat quarters of quilting fabric Particularly tone on tone fabric. So for example say Blue with blue swirls or green with green spots. (to go between the fussy cut squares and for the backing – I don’t want plain, but don’t want to distract too much from the I-spy game either)
•   Any other quilting fabrics you have to offer – even reasonable sized scraps as I do quite a bit of applique. Patterns or plains, neat or scrappy, anything goes when it comes to my stash!
•   *NEW ITEM* I have seen some very cute corduroy fabrics around recently, I'd love to have some like these to work with owls (http://www.etsy.com/listing/67831465/1-meter-blue-owl-and-heart-cotton?ref=sr_list_22&ga_includes%5B0%5D=tags&ga_search_query=owl+corduroy&ga_search_type=all&ga_page=1&ga_ref=related&ga_facet=), Brown Paisley (http://www.fabric.com/apparel-fashion-fabric-corduroy-fabric-kaufman-21-wale-cool-cords-fabric-kaufman-21-wale-cool-cords-paisley-brown.aspx), and Carnival bloom (http://www.fabric.com/apparel-fashion-fabric-baby-children-39-s-apparel-fabrics-corduroy-fabric-michael-miller-corduroy-carnival-bloom-multi.aspx?cm_vc=756b1813-cbc1-43b3-84bd-29889bf8fb7b).
•   Any buttons as many as you can spare, odd or not. Large, small, any colour is great, even plain work shirt buttons.
•   Empty Janome bobbins clear plastic (not metal) Not sure it makes much difference, but my machine is a DC3018  example  (http://www.scrapdragon.com.au/picture.asp?PictureID=2689911)
•   Machine sewing needles I get through them quite quickly. Regular is fine. My machine is detailed above (not that that makes any difference I think!)
•   Sewing thread I use Gutterman threads. Any brand is fine as long as it is good quality. Black, White, light grey or whatever you have is good.
•   Any small toys or identifiable items that would be suitable for putting into I-spy bags – good condition used items are fine.
•   DMC embroidery thread. Any colours would be great, but Black and white are always useful! I’d love more of a selection of the metallics and the variegated too, but I'm always in need of plains!
•   Embroidery Hoops I always have a hoop on the go either for myself, a friend or a fellow crafter. I get through lots of hoops! I use mostly 6”, but would also be interested in receiving smaller hoops 2, 3 or 4”.


Other things / extras
•   Incense holder (that catches the ash) and incense (I like nag champa). Doesn’t have to be as fancy as the one I’ve linked, but I do like  this one!  (http://thecrookedpath.net/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=117_118&products_id=1018)  
•   If there is space in the parcel, I wouldn’t turn down some yummy treats! I love mint chocolates!!!!! And always enjoy trying something that you can’t get in the UK or Australia.
•   I have a supplies and extra’s board on my pintrest here (http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/supplies-and-extras/) which shows some of my favourite things to eat!!! ;)
•   A favourite recipe (my recipe file is an A4 folder)
•   A favourite photograph, 6x4 is fine.

I claim miknessevie for a needlebook! :)

My first claim this round, so I'll be 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.

Colours: particularly blue/green/teal/aqua, natural tones, or black and white; not so keen on pastels and pinks/purples (though dusty/dull shades can be nice).
Metals: silver, copper or antiqued finishes, rather than gold.
Styles: plainish and textured rather than very patterned. Natural linen, monochromatic prints rather than very multi-coloured. Some styles I particularly like are mid-century modern, Scandinavian, Japanese (but not kawaii).

Think artsy-fartsy rather than cutesy when crafting for me :)

No 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 good picture of my tastes – “inspired by” rather than an exact replica is great, so feel free to get creative :) 

* a Star Trek or Doctor Who (http://wists.com/jemimah/dr_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. Great Spock pattern here (http://wists.com/jemimah/884f59e298048915248ebd6dd974f6a2?offset=0)
* pick another one of my fave things and make something in your favourite craft medium (again, great if it’s useful) e.g. fox, British robin, robot (more in profile info)
* things to put other things in (http://wists.com/jemimah/organisation) – box, organiser, project holder, etc. – always welcome
* protective folder to store artwork in – A4 or A3 would be great
*  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 a few fun bits and pieces would be better than something very precious :))


SEWN
* a pockety project bag – I always have several projects on the go, so use these a lot, different styles and sizes all welcome (I love my Mimi project bag, and would happily receive another one ;))
* Plain and sturdy zippered totebag/storage bag
* organiser things (http://wists.com/jemimah/organisation) (e.g. project holder, thing for storing small supplies and bits) any size. Some ideas in wist, but other styles are good too.
* sewing ideas (http://wists.com/jemimah/sewing) (if you want to make cushions/cushion covers, you can mail them unstuffed for easier postage)
* pot mitts/pot holders - something amusing, or one of my fave themes, or just simple. I quite like the long double ended style.
*  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.
*** a Star Trek redshirt pincushion! (http://www.wists.com/jemimah/star_trek/d23cc9d31eee5bcd3c41a9c29dfa1047?offset=0)
* NEW A cover for my kobo with the corner thingies so I can read without taking it out.

YARN/FELT 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 ...
* 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 wants (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. Some good colours for knits – dull denim blue, dull greyish rose, chartreuse, rich or dull red (not too orange-y or dark please), teal.
*** 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 - there are heaps of different patterns I like in that ravelry link. I wear these every day in the winter.
* wisty things made of felt or felted wool (http://wists.com/jemimah/felt)
* crochet granny square slippers (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/granny-square-slippers-2)


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
* stationery – notecards or paper, it’s all good (bonus points for Star Trek or Dr Who theme!)
* 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 – 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!)
* 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.
*** I’d really like to try the DMC Naturals linen embroidery floss (http://www.stitchnz.co.nz/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=6_85&products_id=907&zenid=b62d3f66e27499c85f0193afc2178868).
*** NEW a q-snap frame or two (http://www.sublimestitching.com/qsnap_17) – 11” x 17” and/or 11” x 11” would be great
*** nice sock yarn! Machine washable would be great, I keep felting my socks!
* Noro yarn, other silk/luxury yarn, artisan yarn (http://wists.com/jemimah/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 :))
*** NEW stainless steel yarn like this (http://wists.com/jemimah/c46d13290863b54d0c32161ec7229503?offset=0) or this (http://wists.com/jemimah/04f4bb81f0b5653018605215f76cee38?offset=0)
* NEW Kool Aid for dying yarn, blues and greens, purple (never tried this before, so your advice is welcome too :))
* 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:-
     - pencils, markers and pens (Prismacolor/Derwent/Caran D'Ache/Posca for example, or similar artist grade things – think quality rather than quantity, just a few nice things would be fab! and cheap to mail)
     - 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 circs (I have quite a few sizes in metal and plastic, but no bamboo. Long cables best, but any welcome.)
* 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)
* nice cotton or linen 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. I would particularly love this b&w cat fabric (http://wists.com/jemimah/6670fdae47661aae318fd082325defff?offset=160), this gorgeous fabric (http://wists.com/jemimah/6742a138201cac233f5039c4eaf78ed0?offset=160), and plain linen or wool fabric (natural, grey, green, blue). Also wool doctors flannel (for needlebooks), if it’s easily available where you live.
* crafty magazines – Burda or Anna (either English or German), Vogue Knitting, Verena, or any awesome US sewing/knitting mag.
*** NEW I'd love to get these knitting patterns (http://www.ravelry.com/people/jemimahNZ/favorites?q=pleasebuymethispattern&in=tag) - I particularly want Lalique, the cat socks, and the Jackson Pollock socks - (no postage costs to buy patterns online either!) :)
*** NEW some good pinking shears (for example (http://www.amazon.com/Fiskars-98987097-Softgrip-Pinking-Fabric/dp/B000B7OSSW))


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, etc.
* small chipboard shapes
* 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 A2K for handmade buttons and something else.

1st claim this round.

I am a 40 something mom to 2 teens. I live in Iowa. I work at a police department. We have a dog and we just lost our cat. So sad. I’ll be picking out a new kitten very soon. I got one! She’s so cute and tiny.  I love crafting and reading. Oh, and browsing Craftster.

I love woodland creatures. Especially ducks, since I’m a Duck’s Unlimited volunteer. Yellow and orange are my favorite colors. I wear mostly blues and greens.

I don't care for cigarette smells.

http://pinterest.com/krismith/

Wish List

Crafted:
Hand carved Duck’s Unlimited stamp. 1 ½- 2 inches  Really want!

Doggie diapers. Really want! For a female dog in heat. She is a vizsla. Camo with a ruffle over the butt for my husband. Something more girly for me to put her in. Not overly cutesy or my husband will not let me use them.    She’s supposed to a tough hunting dog. If you have a pattern, I would love a copy since I can’t seem to find one. 17” waist.  (I did buy one so I can see if I can make one)
Similar to this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/68754072/dog-diaper-pantie-for-female-apples-bees

Needle Book. I have several on my pinterest, but whatever you come up with is fine with me. I prefer a book style.

Duck light switch for family room. Two hole plate. A real duck, not a cartoon.

Any duck items. I have lots in my wist. I’m a volunteer for Duck’s Unlimited. DU logo on it would be fine.

Nook cover-I LOVE these covers. I have a regular Nook, not the Nook color.
http://www.etsy.com/shop/belisledesigns?ref=seller_info
Any Nook cover that opens like a book and has a hard cover is fine too. Can be covered with fabric and padding.

Totally stealing this from missmoppet – My daughter loves these. Any one would do. The giraffe and the panda are my favs too. Or the raccoon and the owl. Oh I don’t know…..
http://www.etsy.com/shop/CuteStorm?ref=seller_info

*New* Wall art of some sort with this phrase:  http://pinterest.com/pin/36382453/

2 pillow covers for my family room. I don’t have pillow forms yet, so whatever size you pick is fine with me as long as it’s a standard size. It’s a man cave with bird prints on the wall. So browns, mossy greens, gold’s. Woodsy theme, but not cutesy. I have several in my pinterest. 

Duck jewelry – I prefer silver, copper or gun metal. Duck’s Unlimited is good. Lots of variety in my wist.
Any jewelry similar to my wists.

Overnight bag: Amy Butler style or this style is good too. Darker, big patterns.
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=42927.0

Stenciled t-shirt/ Women’s fitted  Large. V neck please. Would like the art work to be in the front, off to the side. Birds, owls, penguins, flamingo, flowers, trees, hearts, fish, dragonflies, butterflies, turtles, etc. I wear greens, blues, purples, white, black, yellows.

I got a new comforter set. Brown and tan colored. I could use some wall art for my bedroom. Browns and tans and mossy greens.

Jewelry wall hanger.  I have several on my Pinterest.  I have so much jewelry I can’t find anything.

Home made soaps. Nothing to over powering. Vanilla or fruity light scents.

Fun appliquéd pot holders. I have no color theme in my kitchen.

Gauze scarf. A light color with flowers or some little print for spring.

A pinterest surprise.

Supplies:
Beads – fun and unique
Charms – especially woodland creatures
Buttons – love buttons
Modge Podge Dimensional
Glass fusing supplies
Soldering supplies for the microscope pendants – I have a gun and that’s it.
Glass door knobs

Extras:
Jam/Jelly recipes –tried and true please.

(1/0/0)


I’m Sally, 27, living in Victoria, Australia.  I have 2 kids – Miss M (nearly 3) & Master J (nearly 1).

Our whole family are massive Doctor Who fans, love coca-cola & I’d died without my coffee.

As the org we are going to get this moving again!
  Claim for the piggy towel for Emily ( I think)

Hello all, I am Monica your org and love this swap so so much. I am a really strong lady who just is a bull by the horn girl. I am really blessed to have great friends here as my DH says My BFF in the box :) I have to say I am trying to convert my home to as much homemade craftiness as I can it makes me happy. I love so may things and my home is so fun and different in each room really. I am a surfer ocean girl( will be on a board again when I get my knee replaced. We live at the beach on the Crystal Coast the last bank of the famed Outer Banks of North Carolina. I love pink and girly but some edgy too. I am an ride it fast kind of girl. I drive my motorcycle year round. I love to ride and love the ocean. We are teaching the kids to ride and Atlanta to surf How fun. She is a beach bum really they both are. They love to fish and hunt ( shhhh she sits in the woods with me and looks at the animals) only time she shuts up LOL...

I am into clean lines I guess as to messy, I cant stand things looking cluttered or things that are tossed together looking in my house, hair etc everything is just right before we leave the house LOL Odd I know makeup to the beach and even hunting..Odd ball huh....
  
We have 2 beautiful grandkids that my DH and I are raising.
Atlanta is a fun 6 year old. Smart beyond her years when it comes to witty and artistic and then Houston ...He was 3 on MAY 13th . He is a sweet boy who loves his "LOLLY" that's me..I am their Lolly. ( I am too young and fun to be called grandma). He is a special child that was blessed to have teach us so much compassion and love. He has Autism and cant for some odd reason deal with Kelly/Crayon green...not in M&M's or Lego's nothing at all....He hates to shop but loves to help carry in the bags and cries if he does not feel like he is being helpful  :'( I always have a bag to carry in. They both love to garden. He is so happy there and at the beach. The only places I think he is like everyone else and his brain is at peace :)

We have some Allergies in the house...Atlanta has a lung illness like asthma. She cant be around the sticky tar stuff from cigarettes. If you smoke inside pass on claiming us. If you smoke outdoors make sure to please wash your hands and supplies well to not have issues.

Atlanta is on a special diet now :( she has tumors and cant have any candy or goodies so please dont send them to the kids..I can still have some Kender bars however I dont share them I hide and savor them ;)



I have a huge pintrest so if there is something there you want to make that is not on the list here shoot me a PM I am sure I want it LOL!! Please not anything from the kids pins however :)
I love me some hoopla hoops BTW :) hehehe

Post by: frosty772 on June 27, 2011 12:40:14 PM
Im going to claim Bablina for some lounge pants!!  I already have some other items to include as I have been waiting for a chance to claim her lol!!


This is my second claim
one have been sent
None 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)
~~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~~

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

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!!!!

Also looking for decorated photo albums.  One is for non American candy wrappers that I collect!!

Handcrafted cards by you would be great!!

Im also looking for a decorated (painted/decoupaged/stained ect) box for my scrapbooking paper 12X12.  Would prefer an old vintage look.

Stamps and ink pads

Beading supplies like wire 18 gauge or higher, beads, spacers.  Im also needing jewlery making supplies too.  I would love some Swarovski jewelry supplies!!  Also ANY bead findings from Blue Moon Beads of their Lost and Found and/or Manor House (or any that features Victorian/Edwardian pieces) collection would be wonderful.

Yarn!! I love yarn!! I would prefer not to receive any 100% acrylic.  However wool, cotton, silky whatever!!  All colors are welcome (well except neon bright bright colors).

Im looking for corset making supplies. boning, 13.5" busk, lacing!!

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)

My name is Jessica. I live in FL with my husband of (nearly) 4 years, our dog and 2 cats. I love my life. My favorite crafts are card making, embroidery, mosaics and knitting. My favorite colors are any shade of green, blue and pink. I am so excited to join this swap. This is like Christmas, but better! Thank you in advance to anyone who claims me. I love anything that is made with my interests in mind. I tried to be specific below to help the crafter out, I am not picky and I will love ANYTHING that is made for me. Now for the fun parts!!

HUGE WISH, will help me to knock some Christmas presents off my list!  ;) * Black rainboots with gold stenciled fleur de lis. Size 8 or 10. Weird request, I know. I saw someone wearing these and found them online for $40-60. I just can't do that, but I figure it can't be too difficult to stencil or paint the decorations on.

Another HUGE WISH, again with the Christmas presents (and I'd like some for myself too!) * Stenciled t shirts, size medium (most brands) - Either the state of Louisiana with the phrase "shaped like a boot because we kick ass" or one with the word "Love" across the chest, where the L is the state of Louisiana and the O is a heart. I wish I had images to back of these requests, but I cannot find anything, hence the request for them.

*Sun dresses, OBSESSED. I pretty much never wear shorts or pants if I don't have too. I have quite a few that need to be recyucled this year, so I need to restock . I know there are some great, simple patterns out there, but I don't have a working sewing machine at the moment. I have a whole Pinterest board devoted to these, so any variation of anything found here  http://pinterest.com/jrenewright/dresses/ would be great.

*Ruffled shower curtain, like this one: http://pinterest.com/pin/28002261/. This may be too big a wish,but if someone has the fabric available and the skill - I want this bad!

* Citrus fruit paintings. Any size, for my kitchen. Something like along these lines:http://pinterest.com/jrenewright/kitchen/ A citrus clock would be really cool too.

* A lap desk in colors that are bright and fun, something like this:

* Pillow covers with initials for my couch, any size. I’d like them in shades of green, not neon more earthy.  Patterns are also great.  My first initial is J, my husband’s is B, and our last name initial is W, so I’d like a set of either J and B or 2 Ws. Here’s a link to a my inspiration on Craftster: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=333252.0

*Drinking glasses with citrus fruit. Either stenciled or etched. I based my kitchen decorations around some Starbuck’s coffee mugs with big oranges, lemons, and limes, so those would be my preferences on the glasses as well.  Any shape/size galss is fine. More than likely they’ll be on display anyway. Along this same line, I’m interested in coffee mugs, plates or bowls in this theme. Basic pottery with paint and glaze. I have images I can email of the center piece of my inspiration. Other inspirations:http://pinterest.com/jrenewright/kitchen/

*A recipe box with matching recipe cards. I saw a set of these once in a happy homemaker swap and I decided I NEEDED to have one! Any kind of decorated box to hold a standard size card to write or glue recipes to. Ideally this would be something that I could continue to add too over time, so while the box and dividers could be embellished the cards should be relatively plain so that I can easily coordinate additional cards later. Either citrus fruit themed, orange/green/yellow themed, or cute food themed.  I have a few examples in my Etsy faves.

*Aprons for all seasons! I have a Christmas, Easter, St. Patty's, and Valentine's (thanks to Jemimiah for this one last round! ;)that are awesome, and I would like others. I’d like holiday themes, so any holiday at all would be cool, even a duplicate of Christmas cause I celebrate from Thanksgiving until Christmas day. My kitchen
is citrus themed (curtains are Alexander Henry citrus pattern, so that would be amazing, to get one in that fabric!), and I also love stars, polka dots, and rainbows. Cute foods like cupcakes would make a good one too. I like full and half aprons, pockets or no pockets, pom poms - whatever! Pier One has some great ones right now, http://www.pier1.com/SearchResults/tabid/37/txtSearch/aprons/Search/aprons/List/0/Default.aspx, great examples of how anything goes here.

*Pretty much anything with a buck, since my husband's name is Buck. I have a bunch of stuff in my Etsy faves in this theme. I espcially would like some sort of jewelry so that I can take him with me everywhere <3

*Homemade peppermint soap. No just the scent, but actually peppermint so it gives that tingly feeling.

*Organizational/office stuff like decorative file folders, push pins, paper clips. For the pins and clips I prefer fabric or poly clay decorations, buttons are cute too.

*Stenciled t shirts in Always Sunny (Charlie is my fav) or Veronica Mars themes size Med

*A hanging sign of some sort that says "We get along in our RV" with a picture of an RV would be super cute. Small size, like to hang on the wall in an RV.

Any kind of Pinterest suprise: http://pinterest.com/jrenewright/
