Very nice! Aren't they fun to make? I love how there's no such thing as "doing it wrong" or "messing up" when making bird nests! Cheesy

I'm going to claim riario for a surprise off her wist.

First claim this round!

About Me
It's May so it's my birthday month!! I'm turning 32 (eep!) on May 16th!

Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. My favorite colors are jewel tones like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber. I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.) My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy. I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together. My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes. I love to read, I enjoy photography and I love all things Disney!

ALLERGIES
I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.

Crafts

Sewing

*big wish -- A purse in this kind of style. I LOVE, LOVE LOVE this bag. The mix of the cord and the cable...? LOVE. (Could use an existing sweater for the knit part as well if you don't knit. I think that'd work just fine as well.)

*big wish* -- A robe like this one. I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*big wish* -- A tote like this one. I love and covet everything about it from the colors, fabric to the pattern.

*big wish* -- A Slanket! I almost bought a "snuggie" but the fabric was icky. (It was like thin felt.) I want soft, awesome microfiber fleece stuff, you know? Something long enough to cover my toes as well.

 -- A migraine therapy kit like this. I have had migraines for more than 15 years and this kind of thing DOES help.

 -- A leaf embroidered wallet like this.

 -- A purse like the first one here or like this. I like the shape of both styles but it's really the look and colors of the fabric I'm really sold on. So something in similar colors/patterns would be great. Here are more I've wisted for inspiration.


Knitting

*big wish* -- This scarf in these exact colors. I think this is one of the most perfect things ever. I don't really need scarves as a rule because I live in Florida, but I'd find reasons to wear one like this!

 -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft (no wool please because it itches me) I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. (HUGE bonus if it's argyle pattern. I don't know why but I love argyle.)


Other

-- Anything with a phoenix on it. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items here as inspiration.

 -- A leather tree ipod touch case like this. It's SO pretty. (Brown leather please.)

 -- A cool fitted tee like these. I love the colors of these examples. I wear a US size 4 or typically a size small or medium. I pretty much live in baby doll/fitted tees.

 -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, glass mosaic item, etc. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself.

 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or a bowl or a tea mug or whatever. Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (A couple things I've wisted for inspiration.)

 -- Something glass work like a vase or something. Blown or torch or whatever. A cool medium I don't know how to work with at all. This is really pretty for example.

 -- Things for my apartment in Teal Blue and Chocolate Brown. I love these colors together. And I'd love something in them for the home. A quilt or throw; art; kitchen accessories; pillows; curtains, etc., etc.

 -- Disney stuff. Be it characters (like Mickey, Figment, Belle, Mike & Sulley, etc.) or movies (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Monster's Inc., Lady and the Tramp, etc.) or the parks (I live near WDW but I've never been to Disneyland), or historical stuff (books on Walt or the making of the parks, etc.), or things I can use/take to/wear about any of the above, I LOVE DISNEY. So by all means, get creative! Grin

 -- Something (surprise me!) incorporating owls, penguins, bats, cats or red foxes. They're my favorite animals. Note: At this point, I probably have enough owl stuffies/amis so something besides that please.

 -- Fused glass or glass (microscope) slide pendants you think I'd like. (Here are some wisted inspiration items as examples.)

 -- A ribbon organizer. Doesn't have to be this fabric. It's more the idea and the style of storage that I like here. Chocolate/Teal color combo would be great as would fun/cute fabric or prints (like owls or something.)

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists or my wishlist, or the colors I like and see what you can make that you think I'd like.


Craft Supplies
 
-- Doodle Stitching book like this. I've never tried it but it seems like it might be fun.

 -- Starter resin kit/supplies (resin, molds, etc.)

 -- Starter rubber stamp carving stuff. (Maybe a kit or items like tools, the rubber to carve into, how-to/instructions, etc.)

 -- Gemstones and gemstone beads. In every shape, size and color. Donuts, cabs, chips - anything! I LOVE working with gemstones and I can never, ever have enough.

 -- Lampwork beads.

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such. Also, I love Swarovski crystal, unique clasps or toggles, and jewelry wire in 16 gauge and 24 gauge in any color. Gemstone chips are awesome as well since I make Tree of Life pendants with them.


Extras
-- Tea! Especially fruity ones.

 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.

 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)

 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)

 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

Aw, very cute!

Thanks guys! Grin

I'm the lucky person who received the first one! And it's gorgeous! PFD also sent me a tree of life pendant, and if I'm not wearing one, I'm wearing the other!!
I'm so pleased you like them both.

beautiful wire wrapping. I have just begun to teach myself, this project has inspired me. thanks.
Thanks! And don't forget to show off what you make here on Craftster. And, in case it frustrates you at first - keep going. Wire wrapping was mostly aggravation the first several times I tried it. Wink

I've made two items now for bkrenning4 in my last round 45 claim. One of which was deceptively simple but in reality, a little challenging. I'm so happy with how it came out though, I might burst! I only hope she's as pleased with it. Wink

I recieved from PFD!

Sorry for poor camera phone the actual camera is retarded today.

THANKS SO MUCH PFD!

The tree of life has now become best friends with my opal necklace!
You are most welcome! I'm glad you like it so much. Grin
3457  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Two Birds, A Tree and Some Purple - Yippie! on: May 03, 2009 08:15:34 PM
 Cheesy Thanks! I'm a jewelry designer by semi-pro nature, so there's always some jewelry in the works! (And often for swaps.)
3458  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 45 Gallery on: May 03, 2009 05:57:49 PM
That's ok. I know how it goes.  Wink I'm glad you like and I hope you have fun using the cards.
3459  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Rounds 45 and 46 - Discussion on: May 03, 2009 04:37:25 PM
I updated my list!  
I was just looking at the lists so far and saw you had a pearl swirl on yours. Is that current? I honestly can't remember who I've sent one to so far and who I haven't.  Cheesy Several people wisted 'em and I made a few but...bah. Memory fails. If it's current, I'll keep an eye out for ya. Wink
