11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: October 2012 Birthday Swap - Discussion and Gallery on: October 07, 2012 05:06:26 AM
Bunnie Boo, this is (in my opinion) the easiest of the claim style swaps. If it's your birthday, you post your birthday wish list after you've sent in your questionnaire and been approved. After your list is posted, it's a free form style claims. Look over the other lists and make your claim.  The others will make claims off yours. It's one big happy claim fest! Cheesy

Yup, this is definitely the best type of swap. Everyone gets birthday presents! Smiley

Hi October babies. Smiley

My name is Wondra and this Halloween I will be THIRTY. *gasp*

I'm American but I live in a tiny village in Wales, UK. I work in a call centre for a bank (so you know I get a lot of hate) but I'm studying to get my BA in Enlish Language and Lit. Reading and writing are my life.

Here in Wales our choices for craft supplies are pretty limited. Sad We have one local craft store and they are EXPENSIVE so... I too have troubled getting craft supplies that are really common in other places. Sad

I live in a house without any kind of heating and the wind just howls through the valleys in the winter so anything like a hat, socks, gloves, or a scarf would be so, so, so welcome.

If you'd rather ignore my list and just craft a surprise based on one of my favourite themes, have at it. Smiley Themes: cows, witches, vampires, autumn, Halloween, geekery, music, skulls, video games, photography, bats, gnomes, football, rum, pinterest, twitter, zombies, stags, swear words and general naughtiness.

And if you'd rather craft for one ofmy pets instead, that's great too! I have a miniature smooth haired dauschund named Dylan (full name: Dylan Tiberius Lovetoy), a (12-year-old) mutt called Sweep, a (14-year-old) cat named Sweatpea, a cat named Willow, three beareded dragons (Elvis, Frankie, and Rocky), and two chinchillas called Eddie and Maggie. My doxie is my baby. Anything doxie themed is a win - as well as anything for him to wear. (It gets cold for him too in the winter!) A repurposed, knit, crochet, or sewn sweater for him would be a lifesaver. (He doesn't like anything that goes on his head, though!) Or even a mini doxie sized blanket since he likes to burrow under them!

Lastly, I suffer from Depression, migraines, and arthritis. If you want to craft a "comfort" surprise for any of these, that's welcome too. (Something that says "F**k Depression would make me LOL.)

Colours: I like gem tones, reds and purples and oranges especially. Black with anything is a win. Nothing white or light coloured!

Stuff I like and/or need:
Tree art. (Just something like 5x7 or 8x10 or somewhere between, nothing big.) Ideas here: http://pinterest.com/witchybelle4u2/bud-blossom-leaf-and-tree/
Any hoopla art. Ideas here: http://pinterest.com/witchybelle4u2/hooray-hoopla/
A pair of pillow cases. (Seriously... Who has enough pillow cases?)
Rude "business" cards. Like this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/106215321/you-suck-at-parking-novelty-business
Cloth pads. Like these: http://www.etsy.com/listing/105820143/set-of-2-medium-flow-pads-skulls-n-polka or these: http://www.etsy.com/listing/66112567/mamacloth-starter-pack-with-free-mini
A pair of slippers. Something like this: http://www.sewnews.com/articles/Cozy_Toes
A potholder/potholders. Like this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/98873136/bright-owls-set-of-two-quilted or this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/75991220/double-oven-mitt-reversible-potholders
A dream catcher. It doesn't matter how small or big or colour or whatever.
ATCs or an altered... Whatever. (Something to hold my ATCs would be even better.)
A shawl pin. Something like this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/62708754/tutorial-for-wire-wrapped-heart-fibula
A loo roll holder. Like this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/102249236/spare-toilet-paper-roll-holder or this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/105064863/toilet-paper-spare-roll-holder
Something a little dark and strange. Ideas here: http://pinterest.com/witchybelle4u2/a-little-dark-and-strange/
A reuseable bowl cover. Like this: http://goddesshobbies.blogspot.co.uk/2010/05/ecolovies-how-to-make-no-plastic-wrap.html

Yarn Bee brand yarn. (I love it but they don't sell it here.)
Peaches & Creme yarn. (100% cotton yarn is so hard to find here!)
Wool or needles for needle felting.
Wooden clothespins.
Any pewter charms. (Just whatever's on sale, honestly!)
Hemp. (Any size, any colour.)
A jar of leftovers. (Seriously... Whatever bits of ribbons, buttons, trim, etc. that you've got laying around.)
Buttons. Any size, shape, colour, etc. It's my goal to have an enormous jar of buttons that makes my (future) children roll their eyes when I say, "Go find me a button that looks like this..." Smiley
Wooden bangles.
A box full of poms and tassles. (Handmade is better!) I always want them but don't have the patience to make them myself.

Postcards. (new, vintage, sent, unsent, whatever - I collect them.)
Kool-Aide (Not sold here.)
Sausage gravy mix. (My husband is addicted to it and they don't sell it here.)
Cheap dog treats or a dog toy. (If it squeaks, Dylan loves it.)
An old, second hand paperback. (The chinchillas love to nibble on them.)
