Swap name: Wishlist Swap - August 2006
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  Whiskey
Sign-up date range: The end of August!  8/31/06
Date to send item by: Must send out item within 2 weeks of picking a partner
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No WAY!!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Of course!
All ages allowed? Or 18+?  Yes, just make sure its ok with the parental units!
Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders" list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

This is really different from the unconditional swap, so PLEASE READ ALL THE DETAILS BEFORE YOU JOIN! This is a wishlist swap; post a list and you may receive it!    Your list will need to consist of where you are from (PLEASE put your state and/or country), crafted items that you would like (it helps greatly to include links to photographs, tutorials, etc.) and/or crafting supplies.

FIRST: You will look through the lists of the people who have already posted.  You will THEN pick someone from there to craft for.

SECOND: As soon as you have messaged me, the organizer, telling me who you would like to craft for I will tell you that you can post a list.

- to be able to post a list you have to craft for at least ONE person
- there must be AT LEAST 5 items on your list
- you can be picked as many times as you have items on your list
- if you have been picked 3 times, you have to pick one other person to craft for, then you can be picked more..


Person B wants to have their list posted so they PM the organizer with their questionnaire answers, and what they want to craft from Person As list.  The organizer will then PM person B, give them person As address, then they can then post their list.

Person C wants to have a list up, so they choose from A OR B, PM the organizer their answers, the name of the person they want to craft for, and what theyre going to craft.   Then they wait until the organizer sends them the address of whom they have picked.  Then they can post their list.

Say person A has been chosen 3 times. For them to be picked more, they have to pick one more person to craft for.  The organizer (me) will let you know when you need to pick someone else if you want to receive more items.

This is different than the unconditional swap!!!
The unconditional swap is not expecting anything in return for what you have made. A lot of people post their lists without even making anything for someone, so to be able to post your list (and receive) you must craft for at least ONE person!

*This starts over with each new month!*

I'm 15 and live outside Winnipeg, Manitoba. I craft too much for my own good, lately its a lot of purses and sock monkeys but I ike to recon. shirts and silk screen. I have two guinea pigs and a gecko. I like japan characters like tare panda (L), chococat, hello kitty, etc. Fav. wild animals are giraffes, owls, zebras, and elephants. I like all colors, just not florescents, they make me blind. You can't go wrong with earthy tones. I could watch Dirty Dancing Havana Nights a million times. I'd really love to own something with an Andy Warhol banana on it, I don't know what though. I do yoga/pilates a ton and I read alot. If you'd like any other info, feel free to PM me.

Greetings, I am POOP from outer space
« Reply #7 on: August 03, 2006 08:25:17 AM »

I'm Tab in WI USA
Thanks in advance for looking at my wishlist!
My wishlist is
Sewing Stuff
1. crochet roll- Some examples of ones I LOVE are in my wists, but anything to hold my hooks would be wonderful!

2. Tote Bag to hold my crochet projects- I'd love a pocket on the outside for my wallet, keys etc, a pocket inside would be nice, and straps just long enough to go easily over my shoulder.

3. Overnight bag (I know this is a really big one, but it would be a dream!)- I'd like it to have two straps, and be just long enough that I could put it on my shoulder. I'd prefer it to be big enough for 2-3 days worth of clothes and stuff. If you'd like more specific dimensions pm me. There are some examples in my wists (in sig)

4. A fun pincushion.

1. Cute necklaces Or PendantsThanks Ruby Tuesday!
I have a few shown on my wists list. I love microscope slide pendants. OR anything fun. I prefer them to be at least 20"-24" long.

2. Hair items- I have recently gotten my hair cut quite short, and I love adding new, fun bobby pins, clip barrettes, and ribbon headbands. Thanks shewilldieyoung!

1. Soft Knit socks- I can't knit. I have tried, and I will continue to try, but I desperately want a soft pair of socks, any color is fine, I don't even care if they totally match. I wear a size 8 shoe US

2.Knucks http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTknucks.html I love the purple Harm none ones with the purple and the branches. It wouldn't have to say anything either. But they are gorgeous!


1.5" squares of cotton fabric- I'm working on making a postage stamp quilt, but I need lots more squares. Thanks shewilldieyoung!

Fabric scraps (sort of in the same strain as the above squares, but if you don't want to cut the squares that's fine, send me scraps (with at least a 1.5 X 1.5" square amount) and I can cut it.

Old skeleton keys (any shape, size, plain or ornate) I LOVE KEYS! (My goal is to cover a small wall with keys!)

Food Container For my gerbils. Right now their food is just kept in the resealable bag next to their tank. It would need to hold about 6-8 cups of dry food, be food safe, air tight, and cute.
One idea is; http://shop.aranziaronzo.com/cgi-bin/shopping.en/productpage.cgi?ProductId=05574

Halloween Fabrics-  I love pretty much anything, skulls, witches, monsters, etc.... I prefer less cutesy, but even cutesy can be fun sometimes! I have a hard time finding anything fun in stores.

Pretty Ribbons or trims

Tab soda cans- I have so many crafts that I'd love to make with these, but I can't drink artificial sweetners, and I hate to buy the stuff just for the can. So if anyone drinks this, and would like to send me (clean) Tab soda cans I would be grateful!

A surprise- anything from my wistslist (it's in my sig) or something after looking at my wists or reading other posts that you think I may like.

About Me

I'm 28 years old. I am a stay at home mom to my 3 boys. I crochet alot, I make costumes, and dabble in everything else. I LOVE faeries. I love Halloween, Harry Potter,and so much more. My preferred style is probably medieval, think old castles with tapestries. I love the look of fancy old handwritting.  My favorite colors right now are grey and a dusty purple together. But I also love black, orange, brown, earth tones, etc.... (not necessarily together   )I'm honestly really quite simple, and the specifics listed above are just to help if you need it, if you want to go a different way. Please do!
