1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Gallery and Discussion Round 143 (November 2017) on: Today at 04:19:51 AM
Digital hugs to you, rscowtown.

I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to claim this round, because I got claimed by FOUR people in the secret santa swap, and I've only claimed once.  That's part of the way the swap works, but I'm hoping to get at least one more claim in over there to kind of even out the karmic scales at least a little bit.  Smiley

I feel so behind - I could make more than one claim if all these darn relatives would stop surprise visiting us on the weekends !  Tongue

I started with my OWS list, but hopefully in the next few days I can get back in and add some more things for other members of my family.

Hi!  Im Alicia! Im a polymer chemist currently living in Pittsburgh, PA.  I live with my fiance and our two cats.  We celebrate secular Christmas more or less.  

Likes:  lots of color! (especially blues), argyle, sciencey things (chemistry especially of course), using old, unloved things to make new, useful ones, wolves, daffodils, video games (I love Luigi and Pokemon), books (fantasy FTW), and tabletop RPGs (World of Darkness specifically)
 
Dislikes:  Super pink and cutesy or death/goth things.  Also, the color orange (its fine in small amounts, just dont generally like it as the main color).
 
No allergies here!

Crafts
  
Anything from my pinterest www.pinterest.com/fishstix43would be loved. Crafts for DJ is the board for my fiance - he has gotten some great things from Craftster in the past, and theyre always appreciated! (Yarnies - there is also a board called Amigurumi patterns that is technically for me, but contains more than I will ever make on my own - feel free to pick from there 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!).  

Tie-dyed anything, especially clothing.  I would wear the crap out of just some basic tie dye t-shirts, especially the classic rainbow spiral design.

Alice in Wonderland themed kitchen towels or potholders.

Tree of life pendant

A shadowbox with a mash up of the Hufflepuff and Slytherin house crests that can be used to display our two wands - we got engaged at Universal Studios in front of Hogwarts, so they are special to us.

Resin pendants - no bugs, but just about anything else that Ive seen put in resin would be cool.  Magnets or pins would work too, instead of a pendant.

Pajamas!  I could use:
Flannel PJ pants - plaid would be extra awesome, and Id prefer drawstring over elastic waist.
Sleep shirts - all cotton if possible
A short sleeve robe - cotton again or something silky

Hip bag (the kind without the lower leg strap) - examples on pinterest

Polymer clay food charms - I think these are absolutely adorable.

Interesting minis that would fit in a 2x2 box, based on any of my themes (or what you like to make).  I have a display shelf that has a lot of these small spaces free and Id love to fill it up!

Wedding decorations!  I am getting married in April and we haven't done much in the way of decorations yet, so we could definitely use some bits and pieces like bunting or small votive holders, maybe some paper lantern type things...basically if you make it, we would find a way to use it.  Our colors are emerald green and royal purple. Smiley

Craft Supplies

My craft of choice at the moment is knitting, and I would be over the moon about anything related really, but a couple specific things:
A circular needle case - I pinned one that Knitpicks sells, but any kind would be good
Pattern wallet for printed out patterns
Yarn! Obviously.  Especially sock or laceweight yarns - the brighter, the better!

Purse making supplies!
PDF patterns from Swoon Patterns (Amber, Nora, Rosie, Sadie, or  Stella) or Blue Calla Patterns (Lotus or Snowdrop)
Hardware:  Purse feet, square connector rings, swivel hooks, unique zippers, turn locks
Wonder clips

Safety eyes/noses for making amigurumi!  I would love something like this big set from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XGXRVP1/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=I1KZMOOBNA6U8Q&colid=2BAJW8OP4P6WK
 
Paint pens/PITT pens/small Sharpies - basically anything that you think will draw well over mixed media

Student grade mixed media or watercolor paper

Any garment sewing magazines, especially Threads and BurdaStyle/Burda World of Fashion - dont have to be current

Iron on interfacing - knit or woven.  Anything from featherweight all the way up to Peltex.  I probably use Pellon SF101 the most.

Either month is fine with me.  Smiley

kayrun, I was the other newbie this round, and I echo what everyone else said.  It was a great experience and I'm looking forward to the next one!

I would also be interested in rolling my STS stuff over into something like this.  I find the idea that I can just make stuff because it's cool without having to worry about whether I would actually use it really inspiring and freeing.  Smiley

Yup, I probably would have never taken a look at the swap had you not mentioned it.  I really only like the swaps where I have more control over what to make, so I tend to stick to the OWS (and now this).  You just happened to advertise to the right audience, I guess.  Grin

I'm in.  Though I will probably have to institute a personal "can't make another claim until you finish crafting for the first one" for myself.  I could definitely see going a little crazy and making a ton of claims right off the bat.
