It has taken me a few days to get this posted (sorry Chris!), but I finally got a few minutes free.  Here is the awesomely awesome market apron ChrisSews made for me as a thank you gift.  I am SO excited to have this, as I have started doing craft shows again after about 10 years off.  I was awfully tired of trying to keep up with that cash box, so this will be great, plus the colors are exactly perfect!

Here it is!

Please forgive the mess in the background, we are still settling in from our move.   Roll Eyes

Thanks again Chris, I REALLY appreciate it.   Kiss

Ooo - this would be SO much fun.  Esp. if I got paired w/ someone from the UK (I LOVE Jaffa Cakes [with the smashing orangey bit!])  Hmmm...I'll have to think about it.

Ow OW!  Quit twisting my arm, you evil evil swappers!   Wink

Ok, because I am a sucker for this type of swap, here we go!

Hi everyone!  I am Karen, from Portland, Oregon.  I am married, no kids, no pets.  The only allergies I have are to smoke and floral or other strong scents.  I do have a sensitivity to pet dander, but as long as your pet isn't sleeping on the project, it should be fine.  I have a wist listed on my profile.

We don't really celebrate Christmas or any particular Western religious holiday; I do celebrate the New Year however.  Regardless, I'd prefer to have stuff I can use year-round.

I love Japanese Cute Culture, cheese, science fiction & fantasy, renaissance faires, swimming, the ocean, and "pagan" religions.  My favorite colors are jewel tones of amethyst, emerald and sapphire.  

I dabble in several crafts, including jewelry making, metalsmithing, sewing, poly clay, painting, drawing, leatherworking and crochet.

I dislike sugar skulls, anything to do with traditional Western religions, and anything girly/lacy/flowery.

Enough about me!  On to the wishlist.  Wink

BIG wishes are in purple!


A craft smock in a heavyish fabric with pockets on the front.  I have a bad habit of painting and doing other messy crafts without covering up beforehand.  I have ruined several t-shirts that way.  Please message me for size/measurements.
A craft apron for use at the metals studio with a couple of large pockets on the front I'd like it to be a full length apron (covering top and to mid thigh) in some unique fabric so it cannot be mistaken for someone else's.  Again, please PM for measurements.
Tote bags I love bags.
A pouch with compartments to hold my iPhone, bluetooth headset and ear buds.
A messenger bag with a wide comfy strap that is long enough to be worn cross-body.  I am a large & tall girl, so please PM for measurements.  
A "tool roll" - like a hook or needle roll but with pockets to fit my pliers, wire cutters, etc.


Wrist warmers (my craft room gets cold in the winter.) Thanks Annchen!
Socks / slippers for lounging in the house (I wear a US men's size 10)
Coffee mug sleeve Thanks sugaree!
Socks in orange and green for my sister-out-law (she wears a US men's size 10 yeah, we both have big feet)
Socks for my sister in shades of blue & purple (she wears a US women's size 9)
Some sort of knitted/crocheted animal stole.


Anything from / inspired by my wist
A hoodie with some sort of fun embellishment (bleaching, embroidery, whatever you think would look cool).
A moustache t-shirt like the one Kurt was wearing on Glee in the episode where his dad gets sick.

I'll add more stuff as I think of it.   Kiss  Thanks in advance for claiming me!

Yay!  I am so glad you like your goodies Shar!  I couldn't resist the pumpkin carving kit since the eyes kind of went with the bag fabric.  Cheesy  The bracelet and earrings are amethyst and black onyx.
