Title: The 2006 Wishlist ROUND 2
Post by: hertrigger on January 26, 2006 07:48:12 PM

Swap name: The 2006 Wishlist Swap ROUND 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  hertrigger
Sign-up date range: No closing date
Date to send item by: Must send out item within 2 weeks of picking a partner
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No WAY!!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Of course!
All ages allowed? Or 18+?  Yes, just make sure its ok with the parental units!
Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders" list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

This is really different from the unconditional swap, so PLEASE read all the details before you join.. this is a wishlist swap. Do you REALLY want something to start the new year off craft-tastic? Post a list and you may receive it! :)
FIRST: You will look through the list's of the people who have already posted.  You will THEN pick someone from there to craft for.

SECOND: As soon as you have messaged me telling me who you would like to craft for I will tell you you can post a list.

Sounds easy right? Not THAT easy.. heres how it goes
- to beable to post a list you have to craft for atleast ONE person
- you may put as many items on your list as you wish, but there must be ATLEAST 5 on there.
- there isnt a number of times you can be picked.. you can be picked 10 times (if you have 10 items on your list) if you wanted.
- if you have been picked 3 times, you have to pick one other person to craft for. then you can picked more.. so heres an example:

i post my list. person A wants to have their list posted so they PM me and tell me they want to make person B _____.. i will then PM person A, give them person B their address, and they can then post their list. Person C wants to have a list up, so they choose from A OR B, let me know and i send them address, and they post your list.

say person A has been chosen 3 times. for them to be picked a 4th-whatever times, they have to pick one more person to craft for. and i will let you know when you need to pick someone else if you want to recieve more items.

The unconditional swap is not expecting anything in return for what you have made. Alot of people post their lists without even making anything for someone, so to beable to post your list (and receive) you must craft for atleast ONE person

Post by: Obsessed on January 26, 2006 08:56:02 PM
My list in no particular order:

Purses and sewing:
1) A small stylish clutch or purse I can use when I go out. Not too big, but big enough for wallet, keys, phone. Small handle or strap. must have zipper or secure closure. If you have a large fabric stash, please send pics of your fabric.  one pic of everything piled up would be good, so I can pick something from what you already have.
2) A purse in the style of this dress. Even the colors are good, but maybe instead of the whites, you could use a golden/amber color since its wintertime.
3) a mini duffle!
4) a belt purse:  THANKS TALOOLA!
5) a ribbon scarf:
6) A tote purse like this, but it must have a zipper and be sturdy
7) A mini bowling bag!
8.) a CUTE roll up case for my crochet hooks and crochet accessories. 

Jewelry: (currently I'm awaiting earings from this swap, but I'm not sure which one on my list they decided to copy. So please dont pick earings for now)
9) Jewelry is always nice:) I got necklaces from craftyzary, and orange_sunset, and I'm expecting more to come, but a girl can never have enough jewelry! If you choose this, I'll be more specific in what I like. You can also see the list of things on the rest of my jewelry list to see my tastes
10) A felted bead necklace or bracelet. I think these are pretty cool.. I like it long, but it doesnt have to be all beads.. I like when there is a space between beads, or you could do little felted beads, and then a big felted bead, and then more little ones and then another big one, and use the little ones as spacers.
11) a jewelry making kit, and instructions would be cool.  Like not the beads and string kind, but more of the wire, chain, and fancy tools kind. Preferably not a store bought kit, but maybe if you put something together for me, like a how-to. Maybe you could start a piece of jewelry so I have something to work on, and instructions and supplies for me to finish it. I can never find anything I like in the store, so it would be nice if I could make them for myself and my friends.
12) this pair of earings---the style of the gold pair.. maybe silver chain with black/charcoal/grey or white/clear/silver beads...
13) This pair of earings:
14) This necklace:
15) This necklace:
16) This necklace:
17) "Noisy" bracelet. Maybe in aqua?.
18.) The necklaces seen here: I like the 2nd necklace, but I'm just not a big fan of the black and red color combination. Maybe sage and amber? or red wine and gold?
19) a black and white felted bead bracelet, just like the necklace on this thread.
20) Macrame knotted cuff bracelet seen here:  Let me know what colors of crochet thread you have.
21) The black one
22) "noisey necklace"

Other stuff:
24) One of those book clocks, and maybe a clock movement that doesnt have a second hand. I hate the tick tock sound. I'd like it to match my room, so I could send you a picture of my room so you can get some ideas.

25) a knit cabled belt. I saw it in SnB nation. Maybe in a creamy beige or off white?
26) an argyle headband:  The colors in the thread are pretty cute. but maybe cream and tan (with tan as the big diamonds with the X in them), or cream and brown (with cream as the big diamonds with the X in them)  or light pink and heather grey? (pink as the big diamonds, just like the pink in the picture. Please use fingering or sock yarn so it is thin like the pattern calls for. If you need any measurements, let me know

27) yarn. any color, any amount. just no red heart super saver and what I like to call "scratchy" yarns (cheap, acrylic, and rough). Also no fun fur or boa or feather yarn-IMO they're tacky. Oh, and no yarn from frogged sweaters, scarves, etc (just creeps me out for some reason. idk. I'm weird.. maybe its the whole I'm touching something that has been sitting for hours in a strangers armpit, or if its a scarf,then they've been sneezing and snotting on it all winter....icky)

Okay, about me: I'm 23, live in Jersey. I'm girly. Not lace and toole girlie, but I do embrace my feminine side. I guess my style is more classic and sophisticated, with just a hint of trendy. I've come to learn that trends change so quickly, so might as well stick with things that will stand the test of time. I like colors with warm undertones, I'd pick a cream shirt, over a white one.  Bold colors look best on me, as opposed to colors that look washed out. But, think of bold as a strong color, not primary or pastel. So for jewelry, maybe green  and amber, or warm pink. merlot. olive, sage, plum.  I dont like punk or vintage (except in the case of classic sophisticated jewelry) . If I had the money, I'd shop at arden b, and bebe.  I have allergies, so please keep things pet hair free.  Whoever claims me, please PM me with what you're making and any questions you have, and I'll try to be more specific.

To whoever picks me... THANK YOU in advance for whatever you choose to make for me!

a little about 28... i live in ohio (in an icebox for an apartment) with my husband and adorable 2 year old son...i love cutesy things esp. japanese style like hello kitty and tare panda... and that kanzashi stuff (that i just discovered through this site)...i also like retro/mod style stuff and colorful things (except kelly green nothing against any kelly's out there and oranges, greens and yellows in general are best for accents colors)...oh and i love not sure what else to put, pm me if you are curious about anything....and a pre-thank you to anyone who chooses me...i am so psyched about this, i have tried to get my out-of-state friends to do something like this with me for years and it never worked out...

so now the really fun wishes ...hopefully none too big...

*i would love a fun messanger bag style bag (flap helps keeps toys from spiling out) with some pockets to toss -n- take my sons toys in when we go visiting - something very not diaper bag looking   thank you! im looking forward to it!

*i would love a felted bag i am facinated by felting...

*speaking of ... i am dying to try felting a DIY felting kit would be awesome (and make you super awesome)...wet or needle...or the most awesome would be both so i could needle felt decorate something that i have wet felted (sorry if i didnt get the right terminology - shows my need for instruction)  thank you, i am so excited!!

*ive always wanted to try knitting socks and i have heard of some kind of self patterning sock yarn...ive never seen it (maybe it doesnt exist)...but a DIY sock kit with that type of yarn and an easy starters pattern would rock

*a big knitting bag of some sort to hold my current project would be great too, right now i use plastic bags...which between that and moving yarn is really more temptation than my cats can handle and makes life difficult

*a velvet scarf like this  ( ) with some kind of retro or cutesy theme would also make me very happy
*handmade journal...anykind...but i do like this(in case you need ideas)

*a surprise - i especially love glittery stuff

*random fun fabric

*your favorite yarn

this one will probably push me over the "too big for her britches" line...but it is a wish list...wishful thinking right?...

*i would love a shawl of some sort (preferrably black or white or gray)...i saw these post and just thought they were great...;topicseen

thank you so much for whoever picks me...i love getting stuff in the mail and am so excited to finally own homemade stuff that i havent made for myself  ;D

I like that pretty kelly-st. paddy's day green too. I love skulls. And pirates. I think I was a pirate in my past life. I guess I'm a cross between a pinup obsessor- a riot grrl and a dead girl!

Post by: meanbean on January 27, 2006 10:39:07 AM
1)   Norwegian stockings like these: ( (I adore these!)

2)   Genie bottle earrings like these (SO pretty!): (

3)   Resin magnets of vintage photos, something small, maybe large button sized?

4)   Martini ANYTHING – I’m a bit of a lush ;)

5)   Asian/Oriental fabrics – they’re so lush and rich looking, and make up into the most fantastic handbags ever!

6)   Jack Skellington themed items  Wahooo!!!

7)   I know this might be a long shot, but any purse hardware you have lying around, crying out to be used (ie. Handles, zippers, etc)

8)   PIRATES! (stole this from another Pirate-y fan)

9)   An argyle sock monkey – they’re SO STINKIN CUTE!

10)   Cute little animal stuffie keychain like this (type of animal doesn’t matter): (

11)   Sparkly, glittery anything – I’m akin to the raccoons that used to get trapped by their fascination for all things shiny…mmmm, shiiiiiiiiny….

12)   A “How To Applique” Starter Kit (preferably homemade, but store bought works too)

13)   Another long shot, but hey, it’s a wish!  A homemade soft bra like these: ( I'm not pregnant like the gal who created this, but it just screams "wear me!" to my eyes :)

14)           Lace up arm warmers like this (so SEXY): (

15)  A fabu skirt like this would rock my bobby socks (even though it's not a 50's skirt, it's damned hot) (

16)  Any fun, silver jewelry - I'm totally into retro/mod, geometrics.  :)Thanks!

A little about me – I’m just outside of Portland, Oregon.  I’m a customer service rep at a small company, and often have nothing to do, hence my craftster addiction.  I make handbags on the side, and it’s a blast   I have a 3 y/o daughter who’s also into pirates and monkeys, so the pirate-y and monkey-y things would probably wind up in her hands  unless they’re obviously adult-related, like a wallet or something.  I have a special affinity for geometric, graphic prints, retro looking things, 50’s space age futuristic styled items, Michael Miller fabrics, Michael Graves design, and Frank Lloyd Wright housing.  I don’t particularly have colors that I don’t like – everything looks great with the right compliments.  However, my favorite color is purple, followed a close second by black.  I’m a natural redhead who likes to dye her hair crazy colors (currently burgundy and black), and I’m pretty damned crazy.  Plus I’m a lush, and I like using the word lush to describe things   Like fabric.

I'm in New York and here's my list:

12- A diy kit for sewing a specific project that you are good at. I'm a beginner sewer and I work well with patterns but I would love to learn some new projects. For example: If you're good at making Jordy bags or a certain type of skirt than you could send me a picture filled tutorial and some materials to aid me. I can make a lot of basic things so I would love learning something with more difficulty. If you need me to be clearer you can PM me.  :)

YAY!! round 2.

i'm in southern California

1. A tee or recon. I like ballet style tops, tank tops, tube tops, halters, and shirts with wide necks. i like long shirts since i  have a long upper body. I can give measurements if you need them, i wear a juniors M/L
-i love this style:

2. a skirt. a like tiered skirts, pencil skirts and skirts with uneven hem lines (i think they are called assymetrical??). black or brown would be good. something simple tha i can wear with anything. i also like country-ish type skirts. like suede or suede-looking or just brown or tan.

3. a pencil skirt. i can give you measurements. any color, or design. i just really want one of these. i would love to have one to wear for holidays and special occasions.

4. hair accessories. headbands (knit, crochet, or fabric), hair clips, bobbypins, barrettes, or hair ties. my hair is so boring. not with anything too big on it since i wear a visor where i work. my hair has to be in a ponytail for work too so cute and/or funky hair ties would be great. i also use a lot of bobbypins since im growing out my bangs. 
-i like this headband (and got some from two swaps) but i just cant get enough, they are too cute:

5. FABRIC- ribbed knit fabrics-all colors. Felt-all shapes and sizes and colors. courdory-tans, browns. Fleece-Yellow and black (i want to make my nephew a pickachu). retro, solid, mod, bright, stripes, polka dots, black & white.  anything over ¼ yard would be great but remnants are good too, i like everything,  i'm just getting into sewing so any fabrics would be great

6. i would love love love you FOREVER if i could get a cable hat.  i would preferabbly like it in black or gray.
-i like these ones:

7. a country shirt-be creative. my favorites are kenny chesney, brooks and dunn, and Brad paisley

8. knit or crochet supplies. Im just learning so any simple patterns, instructions, or how to kits would be awesome

12. Pants like these with either a dinosaur, or star or heart on them
-these are cute:

So anything to help add to our little theme like tee shirts (or iron ons) that say BOY and GIRL would be cool. or journals/notecards to write letters/notes to each other. we dont live together so something like hand towels wouldnt work (but the second we move in together i know what i'm gunna wish for  ;)) i'm sure you craftsters can think of something awesome!

15. home made stationary or a journal i would love either one of these. i use a lot of notebooks since im making a life-long list. and i would love stationary made just for me!

I like dinosaurs, stars, pink, black, grey, earthy/creamy colors, Elvis, cowboys, TOY STORY-woody's my favorite, Nightmare before Christmas, Alice in wonderland, Pinocchio, and weird stuff. my style is very simple and casual. i wear dark colors mostly, but i love girly things too.

Hi!  I'm from Iowa, USA.  I'm 22 (23 on April 30th), I graduated last May from the University of Iowa with a doublemajor in English and Art and a minor in Art History.  I live here with my boyfriend of seven years and my kitty, Caliope.  In July, we're moving to Denver! I love to craft since I don't have enough room in the apartment to make art!
Oh, and I totally dig thrift items or stuff you just happen to have in your home.  I buy most of my stuff from thrift/consignment stores anyway.
Thank you in advance to whomever chooses from my list!

snap holder for my purse---  something small and rectangular in a bright color so I can easily see it when I'm digging for my lip gloss, breath mints, all those things a girl needs.  Maybe 3x5?

regular ol’ thread---  I have bright orange, bright blue, and navy blue.  I prefer bright colors, but you never know when you may need a color!

Mini Duffle Bag

White Sculpey clayThank you, lamamarco!

Pencil Case

kitty crinkle bag ---My kitty would luuuuv you!;topicseen#msg57610


Knitted Hot Tamale Skirt--I would like it plain, no flames, and not black.

One bright blue sparkly medium Gelly Roll penThank you, classycrafter!  You're such a sweetie!

So-Fresh Carpet Cleaner---  This recipe is on page 55 of Jean Railla's book, "Get Crafty: Hip Home Ec"  I checked my copy out from the public library, but I don't have any essential oils to add to it.

essential oils- no fragrances or parfum/perfume (I already have lavender, peppermint, neroli, tea tree, citronella, and geranium)

Small Trellis for Indoor Ivy---  It just needs something wavy/zigzag/etc. to climb up.

seeds---  herbs, cacti, you-name-it!  Here's what I already have:  oregano, chives, calendula, mallow (zebrina), lavender, basil, catnip, thyme, mint, and german chamomile

Knitted Cleaves---  I would love, love, love one of these!  A brown or brown tweed.”>

Cat Sofa

stitch holders--- they look like giant safety pins

jewelry findings---  earring loop/pieces

Knitted Pumpkins

Mushroom Magnets--- How cute are these?! Your own interpretation would be cool.

straight knitting needles (metal)--- Here's the sizes I need, but don't feel you have to get more than one pair:  US  2, 5, 7, 9, 12, 13

leather or suede---I don’t need a whole lot.. a 12inch square piece would be plentyplenty.  I want to make some sweet embroidered thimbles.

Long Wristwarmers... Forearmwarmers?

shrinky dink-type paper

stuffy-toaster with toast--- Something similar to this cute lil item.  If it could fit in the palm of my hand/your hand, that would be even cuter.

tiny ink stamps---  One inch or smaller.  I have a flamingo that I adore

Felted Marsupial Tote--- from Stitch n Bitch Handbook in aqua and orange

bunch o grapevine---  I have a sweet tut for making a mourning dove bird nest and a skep  (a beehive), but I don't have any grapevine and I'm not sure where to get it.

Stencils—from the Jan 27th entry of:
Haruko--portrait print, 7 or 8 inches tall
knitting needles--6x6 inches (along with) jab!--4x4 inches
Racing Girl--portrait print, 6 inches tall
Preying Mantis--landscape print, 6 inches long

Mmm.. swapping is fun.  Though thinking of stuff is always hard.

1.  A sock monkey or other funky stuffie.  Please give it a name.

2.  Cool buttons. I have some retro shell ones from my grandma, but I can't find her other funky ones and there are times things just need odd buttons.

3.  Zippers, I don't have time to look for them cheap, and I really think I should make another attempt at zippered bags.  Maybe a tutorial on how to not mess up the zipper part... Thank you!  I found some fabric I really want to make in to bags, so this is going to rock.

4.  Small pieces of funky fabric I can use for lining felted bags.  At least 1/4 yd.

5.  Suprise me. I love weird stuff I can put on my desk, or in our office/library.  I like frogs, vegetable theme'd stuff (see previous gallery for why... ) and odd things.  

6.  A needle felted garden gnome.   Not for the garden, just cool like that.

7.  labels to put in my crafted stuff.  Is there a way to make your own? I haven't figured it out.  My crafty name is Happy Veggie

8.  Anything cool and unique from a country other than the US or Canada, even if its a silly postcard.  I love getting mail, especially if it isn't from here.   - Picked twice now for this - Once for Australia, once for the UK Yay!!!! Thank you!- Leaving it on here because I love the stuff and can always use more.

I'm 28, live in Minneapolis, and I am a Craftster addict.  My life is pretty nuts right now, and doing this swap is part of what is keeping me sane.  I love to see what people do, and I love the fact that you can craft for someone and not expect anything in return.  I dig the crafting Karma that goes with that. I hate pastels, I love vibrant things that make me forget it is brown in winter here.

Post by: Duckie on January 28, 2006 07:58:02 AM
Hey-o! I'm in Ottawa, Canada.

A zip hoodie, plain or with a design.

A stenciled men's medium t-shirt, maybe with a design of Simon & Garfunkel, the Beatles, House (from the TV show), or BlackAdder.

A bag or shirt with Zapp Brannigan (from Futurama) that says "That blackish holeish thing".

A skirt like this (

A shirt like this (

A panta.

A bowling ball bag: (

A slouch hobo bag: (

A Jordy bag: (

A sewn knitting needle case, something like this: ]] ( but just for straights, or one just for dpns.

Yarn! Preferably natural fibres, but I am unable to get Caron Simply Soft here, so that would be nice to try. I am WAY into socks now, so some sockweight yarn would be wunderbar.

Handspun yarn! Oh pretty please. Or if someone dyes their own variegated/self-striping yarn, that would be amazing too.

Doubled-pointed needles in sock sizes. (US 2 and lower)

Any knitting or crafting magazines or books.

Quilting fabric - I am a total n00b so at least 4x4" please.

A DIY felting kit

A DIY stencil kit - thank you, mystery sender I do not know yet!

Something with a lime or lemon - stenciled or iron-on maybe some crazy amigurumi style crocheted one?

Something involving a mermaid - the mean kind of mermaid, the type that killed sailors. No Ariel here.

Anything involving Pirates of the Carribean or Jack Skellington (maybe something like this? ( would be very cool.

Handmade soap - I love citrus scents.

I know this is going to sound really odd, but it makes sense if you have read the (awesome, incredible, life-changing!) book House of Leaves. I would like something with an image of an ash tree and the words: "This is not for you."

Stationery, especially stuff you make yourself

A piece of embroidery or cross-stitch or needlepoint - I am not sure if these are all the same - to put up on the wall.

Vintage knitting paraphernalia, including patterns and such.

A surprise!

About Me:

I'm 18 years old and living mostly in Ottawa, but sometimes in Vancouver. I'm a history major. I'm way into knitting but I also do some bookbinding and quilting and random crafting. My favourite colours are green and blue. My favourite design styles are tiki, fifties and old (around the twenties to the sixties) children's illustrations. I am also slowly getting into tattoo art. I love old sailing ships and the stories around them - think Horatio Hornblower or Master & Commander. I wear woman's size XL or men's size M shirt. I'm a big ole book nerd, especially Shakespeare. I don't wear much jewelry. There is always more info on my blog, in particular this post about swap info (

I would really like issue 101 of 'The world of Cross Stitching' has a bear baking on the cover...

*   something crafty with American Sign embroidered or something...cross stitch? with my name 'Danielle' - I'm taking ASL right now and it's really interesting...

*   Law and Order stuff!- I would love a tote or messenger bag (straps at least 23" long) with an image of Benson & Stabbler on it....the one from TV guide....where Stabbler's in a straight jacket...HOT. lol But anything Law & Order or Law & Order: SVU would be great!

birthday wishes and surprises! - oh oh oh! like a big felt birthday cake! or something. hehehe - my birthday is on Feb. 3 (ah next friday!) and it's another year I'm away from home with nothing to do or I'd love crafty birthday wishes and surprises!

If I think of more I'll edit the It's so hard thinking of things I want. lol

Hi Everyone!! I just got approved for my second swap! YEAH!!

So here's the wishlist:

Supplies –

1. yarn - any kind really I'm almost out!!
2. jewelry findings (all silver - I hate gold metallic stuff) Thank you Kasie! REPEATABLE
3. silver chain
4. fabrics of any sort – see below for colors, for patterns I like floral and geometric Thank you Kasie! REPEATABLE
5. zippers – and your own instructions for best way to use them
6. stitch markers for knitting

Crafted stuff –

1. A bag like this in blue or pink, doesn't need to be vinyl as long as it's cute.  (my sewing skillz are not good enough for this)
2. A zipper pouch (makeup bag size) think or (zippers elude me)
3. A set of hair sticks – I have long hair but these need to be short-ish not full chopstick length
4. Big chunky beaded necklace – PM me for length
5. Long chain earrings
6. Needle book
7. Stenciled shirt with a gun (walther ppk) and flowers (the S.O. knows how to stencil but damn if it's a little too much to get my head around) Women's Medium Please - but must be stretchy as I'm kinda curvy
8. Cast resin bracelet or necklace – I don't have space/ventilation to cast resin.
9. Any jewelry – I'm bored with what I have and the stuff I can make well bored with that too :P

Other non crafty stuff –

1. A learn to knit book ( I know how to make a scarf but I've never followed any patterns)
2. A mix CD of electronica/techno/dance/dub/house stuff
3. A surprise – see below for what I like.

About me – almost 33 y.o. living in Hollywood. I love dogs, anything ultramarine blue or cobalt, computers, technology, the internet, sci-fi, anime, anything Japanese especially hello kitty and san-x. I don't drive, but I take the train to work – subways ROCK! I'm pretty girly, but not lacey and froofy, think candy and pink. I love pink too….However, as an aged ex-goth/new wave chic I'm still addicted to black and all my techno style jewelry (think computer bits and lots of shiny stuff etc). My favorite designer style is Oakley, as in the sunglasses. Dragonflies are my favorite bug, but I'm not a nature girl – I love the city –pictures of tiny cute animals (like are awesome.  Dress wise, I do conservative but hip for work (I work at an internet company so I can't dress too stuffy) with mostly black, some grey, green, blue, orange, and pink. I'm a t-shirt and jeans girl at home. I hate aquamarine and turquoise.
 Wow that's long….

Oh and NO Disney related stuff

I'd consider myself REALLY lucky to get anything on this list - thanks ahead of time if anyone does send me something!!

>Swim team bag (Big enough to hold a towel and a change of clothes, with a pocket for goggles and swimmin' caps)
>Knitting needle roll case or Knitting bag
> Coin Purse
> Zippered pouches!

Thank you to everybody who has given me yarn. I'm not going to cross it off though, because it's sort of an ongoing thing. But thank you!
>Kool-aid Dye-your-own Yarn Kit OMG! Thank you so much!
>Non-petroleum based, Recycled, Handspun or Dyed or Painted Yarn

>> Also, as a deliciously nerdy project, I’m going to be knitting Ron’s Chudley Cannons blanket from the Newest HP movie.
Any yarn that you have in these colors (acrylic is probably the most rampant in these colors in this case) would be awesome.
....Yarn in burgundy, tans/browns, oranges of all shades, off whites, pea greens, whatever. I'd adore any older, crusty thrift store yarn in hideous 70's flourescent oranges and browns!  Please help the Weasley Blanket cause!

Mermaids, Centaurs, Fauns/Satyrs, Penguins, Stripes, Goldfish/Koi, Fairies, Weasleys, Delirium/Despair (From The Sandman Comic books by Neil Gaiman), Pirates, Renaissance Faires, Sailor Moon / Other assorted geekery.

A little bit about me:
I am 18 years old, a senior in high school and I live smack-dab in the middle of the Continental United States. I have 2 very part time jobs as a lifeguard and as a veterinary assistant.  I love unique and handmade wearables. I'm an avid knitter and sewer. I wear a lot of every color except yellow and my current favorite color scheme is bluey-turquoise and red orange.

Just in advance: Thank you to anybody who picks me! I really appriciate it!

My favourite colours are purple, black, red, pink, dark green, burgandy.  I like autumn tones but am not keen on yellow or orange on their own, only as accents.  I don't really like bright neon colours much.

I can't wait to pick people from this swap too!

My Wish list
1.   A laptop covering case. I carry a briefcase, but I always have my laptop in a sleeve that can be taken out and carried around. It doesn’t have to have handles, but it’d be nice if it had a zipper or some other secure closure, and an internal pocket (with no zippers! No scratchies for my laptop!) for holding stuff like my usb cord. I have a huge laptop with a 15.4” screen… so it’d have to be big.  PM me for size!
2.   A “Learn to…” Kit.  I can knit and sew.  I’d love to learn bookbinding, shrinky-dinking, resin, felting (needle or wet), spinning, quilting, embroidery, Felt Beads… or whatever you want to teach me!
3.   A cute cardigan or hoody.  All these craftsters have totally awesome cardigans with mismatched buttons and kitschy embroidery… I want one too! I’d love it to be red or some other cheery color, because it’s winter.  Ick.  (Or a hoody, with a zipper.  I really like earth tones, gnomes, the earth/smiling moon…or cupcakes.  And math and science) PM me for exact sizes, but a unisex small… 34” bust.  But loose.
4.   Wall Art- Pictures or drawings, embroidery… what inspires you? What drives you? I’m a stickler for candid portraits and pictures, but… anything, really.  My room is a blue-y gray with cream, black and earthy accents…
5.   I’m a science geek.  I’d love a t-shirt or bag or whatever with a molecule (think caffeine!) or what-have-ye on it.  Periodic Table of Elements? It rocks.
6.   Knitting Needle Holder- I don’t use circular needles, really, so no worries on that front, but places for my needles (straight and dpn) and maybe some notions.
7.   Lunch Box- I bring my lunch to school everyday.  It’d need to be insulated, with enough room to hold a thermos and an orange and snacks.
8.   Hand-spun or hand-dyed yarn.  I want ya-arn…
9.   I have a chin length bob and no idea what to do with it. I’d love barrettes or headbands/scarves that are easy to put in… I’d rather they not be tying headbands because that requires a lot of hand eye coordination… and that’s kind of sketchy. On the topic of accessories, I also love plain sewn and knitted wrist cuffs.
10.   I’d love a summer skirt.  I start brainstorming my spring and summer wardrobe in February, because it’s now that the weather here really starts to get me down. Summer skirts are all about cotton and eyelets, lace… really light, and fun.  Knee-length-ish… happy colors or just neutral… but not black or white. Or neon. PM me for sizes.
11.   I’d love a bag made of kitschy fabric or kimono-esque fabric.  I dig bags with straps that can live on my shoulders with pockets… bags like this  (
12.   I’d love a wristlet with enough room for pencils and a memory stick, my graphing calculator, mp3 player… yanno.  Essentials.  I’d love it like this… (
13.   I’m part of my local SAGA (Straight and Gay Alliance) group and we’re organizing a raffle (to help us get to a conference! Yay! Although the reason that we have to fundraise to get there is sad because the school has no funding or part in the SAGA… L) so… if you’d like to craft something that could be raffled off- we have a bag, knit hat/scarf … so whatever you could think of.  It doesn’t have to be gay pride themed… but something raffley and appealing to high school students, like a stuffy or a cool pencil case or what-have-ye.
14.   A hip belt- with a zipper on the inside, to stash my cash and ID. Because I have an ID and carry enough cash for a payphone… so…
15.   A surprise, based on what you’d think I’d love and what you do best!

About Me:
My name is Katie and I’m a fourteen (almost 15!) year old freshman in NH, USA. I love earthy colors as well as jewel tones. No neon… I’m really loving things that are bright- I’ve turned into my normal winter state of anemic celery, and the immense amounts of snow, clouds and windy, cold weather are starting to take their toll… so bright, happy things.  Things I use are normally practical but pop with little bits of glamour…

*THIS!!! ( I cannot crochet to save my life and this is crochet and I NEED IT!!!*

1- A circular needle roll. I have lots of circs, so a nice big one, please.

2- Some kind of jewelry organizer I can hang on my wall. I have tons of necklaces and a moderate amount of earrings and bracelets.

3- Sock yarn, preferably in a colour I can use to salvage my stalled Jaywalkers. (picture on my blog)

4- I'd like to learn needle felting. I don't plan on making anything huge, but being able to felt little designs onto stuff would be a useful skill.

5- A clothing surprise.

6- Unique jewelry ( I like most of the stuff at

About me- I live in a very small city in Northwest Oregon and spend much of my time knitting, watching movies, reading, and mucking about online. My favourite colour is aubergine, although I tend to wear black more than anything else. I also rock jewel tones in measured amounts. My personal style is more or less "executive goth," so lots of pinstripes, tailored lines, fitted blazers, slacks, little lacy camisoles, stockings, and heels. Despite the predilection for silky camisoles and jewelry, I'm really not a girly-girl. At all. I'm also very pragmatic and don't like having things laying around for which I can't find some practical use.

I also love pie.

Title: Re: The 2006 Wishlist ROUND 2
Post by: Bigmouth on February 01, 2006 08:03:45 PM
Glad to be back for round 2!  Here's my list:

1.  A tablecloth for my dining room.  Something retrolicious to go with my orange/yellow/avocado vintage placemats.  About 60"x80" would be primo.

2.  A bag or purse made of something never intended to be a bag or purse.  Seatbelt webbing?  License plates?  Neckties?  Recycled billboard plastic (saw that one once & haven't forgotten)?  What's your creative idea? 

3.  A bag/purse that looks like something else.  Loved the baked potato purse dooney made.  I also love my purse that looks like a transistor radio, and one I saw that looked like a Chinese take-out carton.  Etc.

4.  Throw pillows!  I'd love Nancy Drew, or vintage exercise images (old pictures of groups doing gymnastics?  Jane Fonda workout?  Not the Tae Bo guy or something like that, though--I beg you), or something that would feel at home in the living room (maroon/avocado/camel--sounds odd, but it looks earthy and I love my old couch) or the bedroom (hunter green, deep red, and whatever), or something odd, or... surprise me.  I love quirky things.

5.  An "ironic tea cozy."  If you have a vision of what that is, then show me!

6.  Any retro ('70s or earlier) style purse Thank you, whoever you are![/b]

7.  A "professional" style of purse in a neutral color/style or with a geometric print. 

8.  A jewelry box with compartments, to keep things from tangling.  I don't care whether it has drawers, or stacked boxes, or little cubby compartments--just something to help avoid the tangles.  Oh, and no earring holders--I don't have pierced ears.

9.  And why not more necklaces to help me fill a box like that?    Bracelets are nice, too, but I have tiny wrists (5 1/4", I believe).

10.  Something to contain my paintbrushes, so I'll keep them all in one place more easily.

11.  Things to hold back my hair.  I have a small head and fine hair, so barrettes should be smallish.  I think I'd enjoy soft headbands, but nothing rigid (those give me headaches)--like something knitted, perhaps.  The only person on earth less "Paris Hiltonian" (yep, I made up that word... too tired) than I am is probably, um, Dick Cheney--but I like the hairnet thing she "inspired" on Craftster.  And the argyle one I saw recently.  Okay, enough with this.  Something to hold my hair back and make it look less ratty, and that won't give me headaches.

12.  Retro/kitsch decor for my kitchen.  The cabinets have funny decals from, probably, the 1940s.  I find them really charming.  I'd like a little help to decorate more in the kitchen with a 1940s/1950s kitsch style.  I'm working with some cookbooks and old advertisements and I have a clock shaped like a percolator coffee maker, but I'd love more help from a Craftster!  Could be something for the walls, or something for the quarter-round shelves above the stove, or whatever else would work in a small kitchen.

13.  Cool duct tape crafts.  I work with a student who is MacGyver-like in his skill making duct tape desk accessories.  I'd like to show him some other cool things people know how to do, because he really gets inspired by people's suggestions.  Wallet?  Purse?  Flowers?  Folders?  It would be great if they're things that he could look at and use as inspiration to make simple versions himself (and maybe I could, too! :)).  And maybe a few pointers for working with duct tape...

14.  OOH!  I have to edit to add that I'd love a second pair of fingerless gloves/armwarmers.  I got a lovely pair in crimson, periwinkle, and dark gray from knottydottie a while back, and I'd love to have a second so they could go in rotation.  Something in a different color or colors than those.  Neutral, black, wild, ugly colors--I really don't care a bit.  My wrists and hands are very small, so you can pm me for any measurements you might need.

About me:  I can't think of a single color that doesn't have its place in my life.  I'd prefer not to be overrun by pinks or pastels, but they work in moderation.  I'm vegetarian, and I'm not fond of leather.  I love retro styling (especially '70s and earlier).  And I'm tired, and I feel I've written enough for now. 

Title: Re: The 2006 Wishlist ROUND 2
Post by: raindrops on February 01, 2006 08:21:35 PM
Here's my list.

My Wishlist
1.   handspun yarn or yarn that is plain old worsted weight (i.e. Red Heart) in skin and hair tones and colors for dresses for making dolls

Thanks for the laptop case, whoever picked me!

3.   a cozy for my cell phone or IPod like the little white critter one Janina made or a pale blue felted material with a little metal keyhole for the clasp
4.   knitted or crocheted fingerless armwarmers in a non-scratchy pale silvery gray or pale steely blue

Thanks for the brooches, whoever picked me!

6.   Stenciled t-shirts  (I would love one that said, “I solemnly swear that I am up to
no good”, or one with cute elephants going around the hem, or one that said, “So
little to do, so much time.  Wait, stop, reverse that.”)

 Thanks, BigMouth, for the collaged t-shirt!

7.   A bag; I’d love an easy-peasy tote, Jordy, or slouch hobo bag; look at my little bio for style/color preferences; nothing too small or too big; just a tote to carry around on weekends and wear with jeans and a tee
8.   A SURPRISE!!  Something functional (preferably wearable, but let your imagination go wild), maybe
9.   Necklaces like the following 3:
- the one here:
- here:
- and here:
   I really like to accessorize simply, and uniquely.  Any of the above necklaces, or
some similar to them, would be awesome! I really like neat pendants (like
Chinese coins or the nice carved bone pendant in the fat girl thread) and I would
love a cluster pendant (someone posted one somewhere that was like a beaded necklace with this long cluster of blue beads on tiny silver chains, but I can’t find it anywhere)

As for me, I'm 21, I am an English Literature major who loves Whitman (I actually have a mild obsession with Uncle Walt), Hawthorne, Poe, and Twain, and I have a dog named Huckleberry. Crazy fact about me: I worked with monkeys my first year of college, and miss them terribly. I am part Native American, and I also love Native American Lit.  I can sew and crochet, and do photography, mixed media, a little jewelry work, and paint.  I love the simplicity of how Angelina Jolie dresses, and the dainty 40's ness of Kirsten Dunst in Spiderman 2.  I like things that look like they're from the 20s-40s (think The Hours) and interesting (but professional-looking- I'll start student teaching soon) accessories.  My favorite animals are fawns, monkeys, and bluebirds (and of course, Huck).  Here are my wishes:

Surprise me!  I bow to the Craftster genius!

My list is really long... not cause I'm greedy, I just want to give lots of options.

Wish List:

- Anything cat-related - Amigurumi, hat, bag, clothing, anything! - Toadstool, I love the hats! Thanks so much!
- DIY clothing - skirts (29-30" waist), shirts (corset???) (34B bust), anything like that - I like purple, black, funky patterns esp. camo, Hello Kitty, Dora the Explorer, anything like that (surprise me!) - a gothic lolita-style apron would rock
- Stencilled t-shirt - Size small/medium in a fitted style, use your logo or anything cute - A shirt that says "Crochet: My Anti-Drug" would be so amazingly cool!
- Anything related to Evanescence, System of a Down, Nirvana, or Hello Kitty

- Stuff for my daughter - she's 4, wears a size 5, and loves Barbie, Dora, Hello Kitty, anything Disney, pink, purple, and blue
- Decorated/Hand-Made notebooks/folders - anything related to my likes would be really awsome, I collect notebooks and would love some handmade/hand-decorated ones
- These are so cute... if someone could make something like it I think I would die of happiness:
- Anything for my boyfriend... he's recently become pretty much homeless, and is lacking almost everything - screenprinted/iron-oned t-shirts/hoodies (size medium/large), with military, historical, or ninja-type images especially, but if you have any other ideas I'd love to hear them!
- Something nice for my kitty... a toy, pillow, a non-skid placemat for her food dish? She LOVES to drag her food across the kitchen, leaving a trail of food and water, so anything that can stop it would be awsome!

- Fabric Fat Quarters or 6"-12" quilting squares, remnants, yards... cotton, flannel, fleece, funfur, anything really, in licensed prints (Dora, Hello Kitty, Strawberry Shortcake, Pokemon, anything), camo, animal prints, cute kid's prints, or bright solid colours - as much as you like/want to send

- Trims, fringes, ribbon remnants
- Yarn, scraps are awsome (I love making hippy/boho-inspired scrap scarves)
- Scrapbooking stuff - paper, stickers, die-cuts, 3D embillishments
- Buttons for clothing - anything really cute, although licensed characters would be the best, or military inspired

About Me:

I'm a 20-year-old university student in Ottawa, Canada, studying history and political science. I am really interested in 20th century history, and in various extremist political movements (Marxist communism, Maoist communism, National Socialism, etc.). I have a daughter who's four, and in french immersion kindergarten, and a cat who acts like a child. I love bright, cheerful colours, but also black and purple (No brown, though), and I love gothic lolita/punkish styled stuff. I love Hello Kitty, cute kid's cartoons, Disney, fashion, and cats. I love DIY clothing (I spend too much time surfing Ebay XD).

Thanks, hertrigger! You're doing a lot of work for this swap and we totally appreciate it!

Okay, here's my list!  Thanks for looking, craftsters!  ;D

Among other things, my goal for 2006 is to buy (borrow/steal) a sewing machine & learn how to sew so I can up the ante on my craftiness! Here is my crafty wishlist! Eventually, I'd like to learn how to make these too!

Hermione Hat in red - I have the pattern I just haven't had the chance to figure it out yet.

a Koshi-himo - I'm totally drooling over these.

Pyramid Coin Purse

crochet cloche hat with flower

Drawstring pouch - If anybody can figure out the pattern, please let me know!

stenciled t-shirt or just the stencil– I’d love one that says “Something About Midnight” – my boyfriend’s internet radio show    WOW. Thank you, mystery Craftster!!! Do you need more details? Should I mail you a shirt?

Thanks *so* much for the wonderful pins...they are posted in the gallery.

Here is da list!
I know, I know, it's amazingly long. However variety is the spice of life and I like it EXTRA SPICEY.
(that was lame)

Knitting :

. So freakin’ sexy! In red? Pink? Purple? Any colour really.  (

. Notebook mittens! I am a writer so I could rock these hardcore. They don’t have to have the embroidery. Just the notebook look.;topicseen  (;topicseen)

. A Chicken Viking hat (

. Skull Scarf (

. This hat. in black/dark purple/brown. (

. These socks are fab. (

.These suckers are really impressive. I would love to have impressive winter wear. (

Supplies :

. Day of the dead fabric.

. A learn to felt kit!

. See these paisley fabrics. I need fabrics like these...;topicseen (;topicseen)

. Any fabric for quilting that you think would go with this- ( I am making a quilt and this is my inspiration fabric!

. Retro fabric, shabby chic roses/cowboy/vintage etc.

Jewellery :

. Any resin bracelet/necklace (like that sweet pea one, I can’t find the link but it was down right beautiful.)

. A necklace. My style is ultra minimal. I really just like pretty and simple things. Ambers and greens and purples are the colours that I like. 16-18 inches is ideal. ( the purple one! I love the space between the beads thing and I dont really adore pendants etc. I just really love nice beads.

. Hair clips that are rockabilly/punk rock inspired. I have fine hair.

Clothing :

. A hoodie- zip up with something really coool on it. See loves or PM me.

. Stenciled t-shirt. No mens big bulky shirts though. Womens XL and I would like it to stretch (I'm so mean...) kind of like this one maybe?;topicseen (;topicseen) or something with pistols or anatomical hearts.

Miscellany :

. Something cool for my house! I just moved out. I still need something for my walls. I adore pin up girls, biology and old school tattoos. After reading the reason behind swallow tattoos I think they are amazing. My bedroom is decorated with anatomical hearts and really rich jewel tones (sari silks and beaded cushions and velvet quilts)

. A fear monster – For my fear that I will continue to try so hard to please other people that I will never accomplish all of the wonderful things I want. I would love this extra hard if it came with a little story like the ones in the post. That is what makes them cute!

. I have always thought it would be neat if someone made a little questionnaire and I answered and received a special surprise based on my loves!

About Me :

I live in Alberta Canada (brrrrr- you can tell it’s cold because I have mittens listed.) and I just turned 20 years old and I am in my first year of an English degree. I used to be a punk rocker so now I am basically a hipster. Anything cool but nice looking works with me. I like black, green, and purple. I really like nature-y colours but only if they mix well with black. I secretly adore cowboy themed goods. A lot of the things I own are leopard print and it's a good thing. I also think that rockabilly has to be the hottest music/style in the world. I love anything Mexican inspired and adore sari silks. I think that world travel is the most important thing anyone could do. (I am so out in left field with my likes…) PM me if you want to know anything at all!

Edited to make it easier to sift through.
