Hi I'm Lia from Kentucky. I've done swaps outside of Craftster before, but I'm obsessed with stash busting and this is a crazy cool idea.

-YARN!!!!! Sooooooo much yarn. A huuuuge box of it, just sitting around doing very little. I will gladly give away loads of it.
-Fabric. Small samples from various stores, mostly under a yard.
-Some old rusty zippers that would work if I could figure out how to sew them on
-Super cute colorful buttons! I've got a huge back and will never use them all.
-Beads. Like those ghetto ass colorful plastic ones, I've got a huge box.
-Lots of old makeup and nail polishes? I dunno if anyone could ever find a use for that.
-Knitted Cell phone holders that I made on various air planes, etc. They're adorable, but I feel bad charging for them, and only own one phone.
- Did I mention I have a huge box full of Yarn? unused skeins, people.
- shampoo bottles which I refuse to throw away, and can't find anyplace to recycle
-Boy clothes from my boyfriend and his twin brother. They're both tall and average sized, with a good sense of style. I snatched up all their old clothes before they gave them away, and can't find enough recons to do!
-Empty CD cases
-A really expensive photography magazine that I never got around to making into a collage, as well as various thousands of other magazine clippings
-Clip on earrings. I'd wear them, but I'm pierced now.

- Cloth pads
- White, scarf-appropriate yarn. I have tons of yarn, yes, but I mean ... I havent' made myself a scarf in years, and my neck is cold.
- Big needles for said scarf. Like, size 14s. Big.
- Stuff for collaging and scrapbooking, whatever that may be.
- Stickers! I love stickers.
- Markers! Markers are awesome.
- POLKA DOTTED and CHECKERED stuff. Mmmmmmmm.
- Shoes. Flats especially. I've got lots of cheap shoes but can't bring myself to alter them, I'd like to give it a try though!
- Art books with lots of pictures I can cut out and make into collages. I've already devoured ART NOW, though, so nunna that.
- Things that are pink.

I'm sedna, and I live in Northern California, and I have SO MUCH CRAFT STUFF.  It makes me tired to think about listing it all, but here is a partial list:
  I have

   presto felt (sticky back felt) white, 9x12, still in pkg -1 sheet-
   dark brown construction paper 9x12 still in pkg of 50
   plastic sheet protectors for paper crafts or pictures? for 3 ring binder, -8-
   partial pad (maybe 40 sheets) of calligraphic parchment paper, 24lb stock
  various colors of tapestry wool (needlepoint)
  old road maps.  why am I saving these?
  some loteria cards (not a complete set or game) about 15?
  1 1/4 bags of polyfill
  a box of dominoes that is so old the white dots are flaking off but you could use them like bricks or something.
  About 200 cowrie shells ready strung.  I am pretty sure they are African.
   Pearl-like beads:
   2 24" oblong strands, 1 bag of a couple hundred round ones, another bag of probably around 75 oblongish ones. (better than the strands)
  microscope slides
  some dress patterns from the 50's
  fabric like, whole sheets I was going to make curtains out of; not patterned, in muted colors (good for quilt backing?)
  What do I want?
   old road maps (JUST KIDDING)
   colored pencils (the kind you can use as watercolor as well)
   knitting needles (I WILL learn how to knit)thanks!
   scrabble letter tiles
   fabric folder for braided rug making- I don't know what this is called
   carding combs (i will also someday learn how to spin)

I'm Shannon, I live in NY, and here's what I've got:

-Yarn. A room full. Some pink and blue novelty furry stuff, lots of acrylic, some cotton, a HUGE cone of scratchy dyeable acrylic--don't ask me why, but I tested it with koolaid and it does indeed take the dye.Lots of recycled-from-sweaters yarn too, mostly bulky, some wool blends, some cotton. There are also some single skeins of laceweight alpaca.
-some clear glycerin soap base and scents: Lavender, Nag Champa and Grapefruit. Also, some little rubber goldfish for putting inside.
-a huge garbage bag of shredded office documents. I made a lot of homemade paper and there's still hardly a dent.
-A Popples sheet, along with other assorted sheets and fabric--flowered, checked, etc. I have scraps of gold metallic cloth, some corduroy, some velvet..gosh, I have everything.
-I can knit or crochet just about anything you can think of. Except really complicated lace.I have a pattern in the StichnBitch Happy Hooker book.

I'm on the prowl for:

-old wool sweaters. I can never get enough.

-polka-dotted fabric

-1 1/4 inch buttons--I'm already talking to someone here about these.

-Black and green yarn. I don't have much of those two colors.

-knitting needles


-wool roving for making dreads for my monsters

-wool blankets--heck, any blankets that don't unravel when you cut them

-t-shirts-men's small, medium, and ladies small, medium.

-fabric paint( not the puffy kind) and regular acrylic paint

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

No, you are correct. This swap needs to be closed out now. If you all want to continue, it's perfectly fine to start up a new "December" round.  Smiley

Hiatus over...back to crafting.
