Prayers that all is OK with her and family, and she just got super busy!

Our first person up for claiming is the last person who made a claim in the previous round, and that is scarlet_nights.

Her list is here (you are claiming her not me)

Hi! My name is Liz. I live in a tiny village in Souther Illinois called Iuka. I have 2 dogs, a dashound and pug and several cats. I got married on Halloween so still in that "newlywed" stage. I love the darker side of things, vampires, gothic, steampunk, faries. I have 115 Living Dead Dolls in my living room(if you knows what they are you get extra points) On the flipside of that I love silly things like rubber ducks, I have over 500 of them in my bathroom, garfields, domos, headgehogs and a strange obbsession with pin cusions. I want to live in the 50's. Love everything about that decade and collect just about anything from it. I love to read and history is fascinating to me. I know lots of pointless facts and enjoy reading trivia and fact books like uncle johns bathroom readers. I enjoy playing cards and card games like munchkins. I absolutly love tattoos, i have 4 and am in the prosses of saving up for my next one.

Ongoing Wish Swap Round 131 October 2016

Click here for the Gallery/Discussion for round 131

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rscowtown
Sign-up date range: 10/1/2016---10/31/2016
Claim date range 10/1/2016---10/31/2016 (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 gonna be 54 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 gelatin person to post a list at the beginning of the next month.

The size of the can 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 gelatin 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 eat 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.

2. Confirm that are at least 16 years old: (YES/NO)

3. Do you understand that you are claiming for at least a medium sized item? For this swap a medium sized item means 2 or more crafting hours or over $20 worth of supplies.

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?

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 cans, 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 clains. If you can not provide a receipt and the can does not arrive you will need to resend the claim.

If you have questions, please PM rscowtown. Welcome to the Oct. 2016 Round 131 of the OWS!

Hi I'm Laurel from Wisconsin. Married to Mark for 33 years, mom to a boy 23 and girl 29 and grandma to a 6 year old. We have 3 rescued dachshunds, I love the old ugly ones that no one wants.

** Please pm me if you find something on my pin boards that isn't listed below, sometimes I pin stuff for ideas but may have already made the item and forgotten to mark it or just pinned it for a random idea.

Please do NOT send items with roses or clowns on them (aka stuff i don't like) thanks!


Here is my swap/claim wish list Pinterest board


Anything from my Amazon wish list: USED IS FINE for books.    http://amzn.com/w/1Z0HF1CX825QZ

Etsy stuff I want:

#39 of this listing--  https://www.etsy.com/listing/202738359/your-choice-diy-painting-polymer-clay

this nurses pin:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/123211826/nurses-tools-of-the-trade-brooch-nurse


Yes I am a walking dead fan and now am looking for zombie stamps. I have a lot of zombie stamps, but I would love any of Len Peralta's zombie stamps of zombies or words from artgonewild.com, as I don't have any of Len's yet.

We really could use these **For Hubby**pairs of standard size pillow cases in these themes:

Green Bay Packer print fabric
Milwaukee Brewers print
Wisconsin Badgers

**I have some quilt squares from Craftster swaps and would love more! such as:

Orphan quilt squares:if you have some that long for a home, I'll gladly take them in, 12x12 prefered, but any size I can adapt to fit, pattern or colors (but no roses or clowns allowed) **please NO hexagon pieced--I have sooo many of them here, and am finishing up a grandmothers flower garden quilt that I started 30 years, yes YEARS ago LOL**

or if you have fabric scraps and feel like making string squares like these, I'd love them:  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653826004452/

Here is another pic/ link to scrappy string blocks: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653827763450/

And another great pic for using scraps to make blocks: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/479563060301396199/

some of these Patriotic quilt squares would be sweet. I have started a patriotic quilt for me, and would love to add squares you make to it (yes these are not square, but that's ok; my pieces are various sized too):  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653829119352/

or these quilt squares: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653831531154


**New** any of these variegated threads spools of all cotton thread

This patterned white fabric is what im looking for:  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653833353920/
(The patterned fabric is what I will use with some new dies I just ordered; just like it shows in the photo on the pin.)
I do quilt sandwiches with it, and have sooo many ideas with fabric painting, free motion quilting and making art that I can hopefully start selling.

Gift cards to:
Hobby Lobby
Jo Ann's
Dick Blick
McDonalds I get my morning iced coffee there everyday LOL

Lindy's Stamp Gang, any of their powder sets.

Any of these stencils:



**Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn variegated 5oz skeins: (worsted weight has 252 yards)
color 800 Jazz stripe
806 Agean stripe
Or any other variegated color of this yarn

140# water color paper any size sheets

Sharpie PAINT markers: gold, silver, blues, greens, purple, pink, orange, white

HUGEMUNGOUS OMGOSH I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER IF YOU FIND ME ONE OF THESE: VW emblem from the front of a VW bus (must be the big VW not the small one from a beetle, cuz I got dat)  must be used like mebby from a junk yard?

Thanks for considering me to craft for in this swap!
