I am very sorry that its taken me so long to post pic of the awesome purse that Chopino9n2 sent me. I took the goodies out of it and forgot to take pix first, I did gather a few of them for pix.

it's HUGE! like 18" x 17" crocheted and fabric lining Smiley

check out this button!!!!

beautiful fall fabric with 2 sections to load stuff into Smiley

some of the goodies I received, there were also some Werthers candys, and I took the mug cozy off and onto one of my lovely beverages as soon as I opened the purse, also some pens and some hand sanitizer in wonderful scents. Did i miss anything? thanks again so much Maggie!!!

Edel was the last person to claim in the previous round, so she is first up for claiming!

My name is Edel and I live in ireland with my 22 year old daughter. I love all sorts of craft, I sew, bookbind, stencil, make jewellery. My daughter is musical theatre obsessed. In general I prefer fabrics that feel nice, soft cotton, fake fur and mostly prefer functional to purely decorative stuff.
Favourite colours, turquoise, teal, soft vintage green, black, red. Anycolour paired with black. I am not a fan of neons.
Themes flamingos, hearts, winged hearts, tattoo, goth, ravens and corvids (https://www.pinterest.ie/edelc/crows/) of all kinds, 

My wish list

Anything from my craft swap ideas board www.pinterest.com/edelc
A hood like this https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/131378514114631110/ with a stronger colour hood and a soft fake fur, or fleecy lining. I have a big head and lots of hair, so it needs to be a generous size.
A cross back apron like this, any colour. https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/131378514111074813/
I love this bag https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/131378514110556444/
This is such a cute felt+knitting Christmas ornament https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/131378514110699226/
Lounge pants, this fabric is great, but it doesnt have to be like this. Stretchy fabric please https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/131378514110170273/
I love this hat so much https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/131378514108717975/
A shrine, (I have a board of them on pinterest https://www.pinterest.ie/edelc/shrines/ ) https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/131378514100830227/
chainmaille necklace or bracelet-I have big wrists- (for re-enactment) https://www.pinterest.ie/pin/116038127874796574/
these cups, the delicate cup and words are great.  https://www.pinterest.ie/pin/131378514103476757/
I love this skirt, it could be a recon from a thrifted skirt
Patchwork skirt-bright colours

Christmas decorations like these
Stencilled tee shirts Womens L or XL

Something harry potter inspired, either actual size or miniature for my HP Christmas tree
Something medieval garb related, perhaps a t-tunic?
Little things and supplies
Fabric for patchwork, novelty prints in any of my themes, or any theme from this board
Sterling silver jewellery findings

A few sheets of these stickers https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/131378514101946192/
Popcorn jellybellies
Anything musical theatre related for my daughter, her favourites are book of Mormon, wicked, sister act, le miserable.

Ongoing Wish Swap Round 143 November 2017

Click here for the Gallery/Discussion for round 143

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rscowtown
Sign-up date range: 11/1/2017---11/30/2017
Claim date range 11/1/2017---11/30/2017 (some claims made near the end of the month will have a ship by date in the following month)
Date to send item by: 2 weeks after the date of the claim

Limited to a certain number of people? No, heck no! when the wall are starting to bow and the ceiling looks like its gonna cave in, we will just get a bigger room!

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO--everyone is warmly welcomed! Hey Tell us about where YOU live! share some pix, slap some up on a new pinterest board, let us stalk you from afar....and long to visit you!

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES you betcha, and I got a great co-organizer all lined up
- Is at least 18 years old: YES im 55 this year wheeeee!

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative comments: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:

This is an ongoing swap: Claim an item from the list of the last person who posted and post your own list in response. It makes a chain. When we get to the end of the month, the very last person to post a list will be the first person to post a list at the beginning of the next month.

The size of the claim should be a medium item. This means 2 or more crafting hours (this is not cooking time, drying time, etc.. waiting around for something to set up.......it is craft time for the average crafter) or supplies worth at least $20.

1) When you send to the person you have claimed, you MUST PM the organizer with the delivery confirmation # or if you are outside the US, you need to either PM the customs number on your receipt from the post office or upload a copy of your post office receipt.

2) When you receive a claim, you MUST PM the organizer so she can update the main list.

3) NEW!!!! We are asking that everyone post once a week in the discussion/gallery board--so that we know you're still here with us Smiley  Obviously, if you join mid month, you would only need to post for the weeks you are in the swap (the last 2 weeks cuz you weren't in the swap during the first 2 weeks).

If you post:  "I'm still here but swamped with work!" that's ok! If you want to post a big rambling note about what you did during the week, that's ok too. Don't forget to comment on the awesome items folks are receiving from their claims!

Did you make something that you'd just love to make again? Post it in the discussion and suggest that mebby someone add it to their wish list so you mebby could claim them! I had lots of paint and brushes left over from when I taught One Stroke Painting classes (am a certified One Stroke Painting Instructor). Some of those brushes and paints were sent to a new home(s) cuz they don't like sitting in my storage rooms down in the store. Do you have extra stuff that needs a new home? list it in a post, and give us a nudge to add it to our wish lists!

Go ahead, check out your excess or duplicate things, mention them in this swap's discussion board and perhaps they too will soon be winging their way to a new home where they will be used!

Let's keep the discussions going and maybe growing--ideas for some games we can do in the discussion/gallery board? I would be more than happy to supply some prizes!

These 2 required PM's are part of communication and are used when giving feedback for participating in this swap.

If you want to participate, information to send to: rscowtown

5. How many claims are you allowed? (New swappers--this would be your very first swap ever--1 claim; those who have been in swaps before--2 claims; Friends of Craftster--3 claims) Please type 1, 2 or 3--->

6. Do you agree that you will PM the organizer when you send and when you receive, and if sending, PM the delivery confirmation # or a pic of the receipt if you are outside the US?

7. Do you understand that you should post at once a week in the discussion thread?
8. Tell me anything you want (I am the only person who sees this Smiley

Any questions?


Do not post in this thread until you are ready to make a claim. All discussion needs to be kept in the discussion/gallery thread. Please post at least once in the discussion thread.

When you PM the organizer for sending and receiving please include the name of the swap (including the round) and the due date of the claim.  
I.E.  Sally ----> Suzy for a pink pony saddle due out Jan 1

Please pay close attention to your partners wish list and allergies, likes, dislikes etc. Make sure your own allergy information and your country are prominently displayed in your post.

Do not claim someone while waiting for approval. You may claim as soon as you get approval confirmation.

Have your list including both 15 medium crafted items AND 15 supply items ready before making your first claim (the more you have, the better your chance of getting claimed quickly).

Please include your claims status: How many claims you have made in total, how many are in transit and how many have been received by their intended recipients. i.e/ 4 claims/1 in transit/2 received.

Unsent Claim Limit:
Friend of Craftster: Three
First-Time Swapper: One
Everyone Else: Two

You may claim again once you have shipped a claim but you can not have more than twice your Unsent Claim Limit outstanding at any one time.

If you are a friend of craftster you can have 3 unsent claims open at a time and no more than 6 total claims open (open meaning in transit as well as not yet sent) no matter how many have been posted. As an example, You claim 3 times, send all 3 claims out, then claim 3 more times. Even when you send any or even all of those 3 claims, you can not claim again until a claim has been received. So a person can be 6 claims/3 in transit/0 received. Or 6/6/0 or 8/5/2 or 7/5/1.

If you are not a friend of craftster, you can have at most 2 claims unsent and 4 claims total between unsent and in transit. So 4/2/0 is okay or 5/3/1 or 6/4/2

If this is your first swap, You can have at most one claim in transit and one claim unsent. 2/1/0, 2/2/0, 3/1/1

Please keep in mind that DC#'s are required for all US to US cans and receipts are required for all international claims. If you can not provide a receipt and the item does not arrive you will need to resend the claim.

If you have questions, please PM rscowtown. Welcome to the November 2017 Round 143 of the OWS!
