Ongoing Wish Swap Round 135 March 2017

Click here for the Gallery/Discussion for round 135

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rscowtown
Sign-up date range: 3/1/2017---3/31/2017
Claim date range 3/1/2017---3/31/2017 (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 gonna be 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
Name of swap: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 135 {March 2017}
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:

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.

4. Are you a Friend of Craftster?

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. I got nothing for this question, so feel free to share whatever you'd like (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 March 2017 Round 135 of the OWS!

I be claiming JS for insulbright

my list in less than 10 minutes......
oh looky here it is....

Hi I'm Laurel from Wisconsin. Married to Mark for 33 years, mom to a boy 24 and girl 29 and grandma to a 7 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 **added new items 2/8/17**


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


*new* I would love, love, love any of these tote bags:


https://www.etsy.com/listing/234990959/yarn-head-canvas-tote Thanks kittykill Smiley



you come up with a fun knitting related saying and put it on a tote bag for me to use, drawstring totes are fine, doesn't need to be a huge bag/tote, handles are great, the size of any of the above-ish.


mini skeins of this type of yarn: any colors or color packs**new 2/8/17**


Zwerger Garn Opal Harry Potter: its discontinued, but any skeins, any color of this brand would be just awesome to receive!!

Christmas color worsted weight yarn from indie dyers (not the stuff you can get at box stores, i have tons of that) could be red/green, blues, forest/burgundy, candy cane, bad santa, frozen theme. If you type in "hand dyed Christmas worsted yarn" you will find a bunch (hint: i like the night mare before Christmas)

Sock yarn: aka fingering weight yarn, superwash marino/nylon blend preferred. the nylon gives it stretch.
Here are some of my fav Etsy sellers for sock yarns:


https://www.etsy.com/shop/CrystalskyesHandDyed?ref=l2-shop-info-name (she offers free shipping!)

https://www.etsy.com/shop/KnarwhalKnits?ref=l2-shopheader-name  (any of their mini skein sets would be super to add to my stash or their Snowscape watercolor yarn)

https://www.etsy.com/listing/479600147/strawberry-squid-hand-dyed-variegated?ref=shop_home_active_24  (this strawberry sock yarn) or any of their yummy colors!

https://www.etsy.com/listing/469447732/a-new-star-hand-dyed-soft-merino-nylon?ref=related-1 (this sparkle sock yarn)

or Kroys or Bernat sock yarn, or Crazy Zauberball in any color (must say crazy)

I would love these knitting needles:  

double pointed WOOD needles (usually in a set of 5 or 6 same size), 8" long are great, in sizes US 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
Here is a link to some I'd like: http://www.knitpicks.com/needles/8_Foursquare_Majestic_Wood_Double_Point_Needles__DFoursqMajestic8inDPN.html

or any of these foresquare interchangable tips:
http://www.knitpicks.com/needles/Foursquare_Majestic_Interchangeable_Circular_Knitting_Needle_Tips__DKPInterFSMTips.html  *I already have size US 4, US 7, US 8 and US15.* I would love to get these sizes:  US 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 13

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

Green Bay Packer print fabric (Thanks Averia!)
Milwaukee Brewers print
Wisconsin Badgers

**new 2/11/17**
knitting project bags out of any of the following prints:
sheep, nurse hats, colorful balls of yarn, chickens with chicken coops, owls in pine trees, foxes on light blue background
Here is a link to an etsy shop I have purchased from: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ZoesBagBoutique?ref=l2-shopheader-name
(I already have the sheep knitting project bag that has red balls of yarn, and a couple sheep with yarn labels on them) her $13.95 drawstring bag is perfect for my WIPS.

**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**

Here are links to squares that would be great to receive:







These lovely paints:  http://butterflyreflectionsink.3dcartstores.com/Gansai-Tambi-Starry-Colors_p_7266.html

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 or zombie words from artgonewild.com, as I don't have any of Len's yet. (I love the dr and nurse set and the new reindeer and elf zombie set--hint hint)

THREADS: Any of these variegated threads spools of all cotton thread

our family would be so grateful for prayers, healing thoughts and wishes for my hubbys oldest sister, Nancy whose brain tumor has returned.  She will be undergoing surgery this coming thursday. the type of tumor is a long word that i cannot pronounce and she has been sliding out of bed and having other problems. she called the other night and i caught just the tail end of the conversation as i walked thru the door, hubby had it on speaker. I think the last time they did surgery, years ago, they could not remove all of it and did radiation as she still has the mask she had to wear.

Prayers and thoughts for peace, calmness, strength and that God will guide the Dr's hands are so appreciated Smiley
