Hi there! My name is Janin and I'm from Germany. My birthday is on september 30, I'm turning 22.
I really don't feel any different then I felt on my 18th birthday, 4 years are nothing. Just like last year, I will
probably not celebrate my birthday as friends are scattered far away. I don't mind much, but a little surprise in the mail
would be nice nonetheless  Wink
I'm currently studying computer science and love it! Apart from studying I do all sorts of crafty stuff, I sew, knit, crochet, spin etc.
I like almost all colors, but am not too keen about yellow and orange.

And here's my list:
-felting kit; I'm so curious to try it
-anything Hello Kitty
-funky fabric with unusual prints; they are a lot harder to get over here in Germany and if I find one it's ridiculously expensive
-old sewing or knitting pattern(no 80's please  Cool)
-dyes to dye cotton yarn; I recently got undyed cotton yarn, but have trouble finding the right dye
-postcards; I collect them, any kind!
-sewing/quilt supplies like buttons or large pins or ribbons
-an amigurumi(no idea if I spelled that right), I tried it myself once, but it sucked
-something felted
-brooches Thank you Phizzychick
-hair pins, I got a new hair cut some time ago(from almost waist length to not reaching my shoulders!) Thank you Phizzychick
-a bookmark
-I also have a wists list:http://www.wists.com/javede
-a surprise would be fab too!

I'm Brihene, I'm from Newfoundland Canada, and I'm going to be 12 on September 12th. I like riding horses, plushies, computers, and music. And I basically have no clue what else to say, hah.

I would LOVE:
- A Messenger bag
- Amigurimmi (I know I didn;t spell that right)
- Plushies
- A western saddlepad cover (http://www.ponyonly.com/images/Ol-11104.jpg <-- That's a western saddle pad..for a cover you need flannel and very strechy elastic)
- A dino hoodie (I take a womens medium)
- An iPod case
- Mixed CDS (please, no cursing in the songs)
- A poptab belt
- Some buttons, as in pin buttons, with bands. I'm a button junkie!
- Hair falls!

A bit about me
HmmIm a 32-year-old (soon to be 33 on 21st September) art teacher from NW England. I love rock/heavy metal music with a passion and any other music that makes me smile. My dress sense is probably best described as quirky and I dont like to follow trends. I have lots of clothes that fall into both rock and hippy categories! I tend to be drawn to chunky, bold accessories and Im a born hoarder. Ive drawers full of clothes and old jewellery to re-doone dayI love recon clothes but I never seem to get around to them. I love books too and have bookcases overflowing with stacks of old books, and I like to alter books.  I really dont get along with pastels, or pinks unless theyre dark or dusky, but I like everything else. I like nature, birds and insects particularly! I really like quirky little things! Take a look at my wist if youd like an idea of my kind of style!

1. Recon/printed Tee Medium / UK12
2. Jewellery with insects on it I have pierced ears & wear necklaces all lengths!
3. Wrist cuff
4. Anything related to my favourite bands (Type O Negative, Opeth, Katatonia, TOOL, AiC, NIN, Black Sabbath, Crash Test Dummies, Lacuna Coil, Iron Maiden, Rammstein, Pantera)
5. Mix CD of music you think I might like (see above)
6. Handmade knitting needles with funky ends! any size
7. Funky buttons / beads
8. Handspun yarn
9. Hairgrips with skulls / bones that kind of thing on
10. Old paper or ephemera for using on ATCs and altered books
11. A magic yarn ball! How exciting! (swap gallery - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=116415.0)
12. Anything you think Ill like inspired by my wists www.wists.com/Phizzychick
13. A surprise!

Thank you so much to anyone who is willing to craft for me!! Grin Feel free to PM me if you have any questions!

EDIT: Thank you so much to the "super secret craftster" who picked to craft for me!! Though I might go crazy before my birthday wondering who you are, it's very exciting! Cheesy

EDIT: Thank you WisperedEternity! Kiss

Notecards with my inital (A) on them.

Hi! I am turning 25 as of September 16.   I am a first time college student who is relishing in most of my classes and still an undeclared major. I am in Houston, Texas at the University of Houston.   I have two daughters, 6 y.o. and 13 months. I love to read and write, particularly I love poetry.  I like all kinds of colors, but purples are a favorite as is teal, coral, and Caribbean blues.  I never really do much for myself, so I am really bad at this kind of thing. I adore big cats, marine critters especially sea turtles and manta rays. I am a complete RENT fanatic. I LOVE fairies, especially Amy Browns fairies.  If you want to know anything else, ask away!  I promise I don't bite!
So um, here is the list:  ( Thank you for even reading this!)

I am only slightly obsessed with this laptop sleeve tote set.  Completely open to a different theme, maybe something poetry or writing related, or marine, or fantasy

I would die for one of these dresses in a pretty color or black.  I just can't figure it out myself.

A cute unusual stuffie.

A nifty wallet, any kind except duct tape (little fingers make short work of duct tape.

Fingerless gloves

Beanie style crochet hat

Messenger bag that is durable and roomy, open to colors or decorations


Decorated hoodie - open to how it could be decorated, I hate jackets, so I figure if I have a warm sweatshirt hoodie that I adore I would actually wear it instead of getting sick yet again in the few months of winter we get here, plus some of my classes are artic

Panta THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Miss Mermaid Strikes Back - Your username rocks btw.

A surprise! !!!!!!

Happy birthday to all the other September babes out there!  My 25th birthday was on the 3rd so I'm feeling a bit old at the moment.  I love quirky yet sophisticated styles.  I'm also a fan of punk and goth inspired styles (though I hate spiders! Why do people think that all goths like spiders?).  My favorite colors are pink and black, and at the moment I like red and lilac as well. 

Please note that I live in Japan, so that will be international shipping for most of you!

My wishlist:

- DIY paper making kit
- cute stitch markers for my knittingThanks javede!!
- a white purse (jordy, hobo; not a clutch)
- a funky "hipsligner" https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=31379.0 to wear out clubbing. Preferably punk-ish in design.
- jewlery without metal!  I am allergic to metal (except gold! hehe) and have a hard time finding jewlery without any at all.
- very wide leg pants! I've seen these pants on the internet that sit on your hips, but are huuuuge in the leg.  Reminds me of the big pants of the early 90s.
- punk gothic lolita skirt (not black and white, but black and red would be great).  I love these styles: http://www.putumayo-home.com/062004bkpk.jpg and http://www.putumayo-home.com/7350471.jpg
- surprise me! I love surprises. Smiley

My birthday was on the 6th and I turned 24. I live, work, and go to school in Kansas. I have already finished a degree in Anthropology with a focus in Archaeology and Physical Anthropology (so, basically, I know all about dead people), and I will (hopefully!) finish a second degree in German Language and Literature this December. I currently work in the Registrarial department of an art museum, and am hoping for similar work in an history/anthropology museum once I graduate. My favorite color is pink--In fact, I'm kind of obsessed with it. I also like fancy dress clothing and jewelry, but I don't really consider myself a 'girly-girl.' I am a big-time fan girl of most things SciFi, including the TV shows Firefly, Doctor Who, and Buffy, as well as Harry Potter, X-Men, and anything by Robin Hobb. I also like yaoi manga and anime (like Gravitation, Fake, Loveless, etc.) Feel free to PM me for more info!

-A small bag/wristlet or wallet with lots of pockets. I really love the fabrics and styles (pocket wallet, zippered flapper) as seen http://www.etsy.com/shop_sold.php?user_id=6159&sort=recent&page_id=11here:

- A journal. Ruled or unruled paper is fine, as long as it lays flat when opened. A built-in book mark/ribbon would be great too.

- I started taking up knitting a while ago, and I would love to try making some socks, so either sock yarn or a 'beginner sock knit kit' type thing

- Random balls/skeins of yarn. I haven't had much of an opportunity to try many different fibers yet, but I would like to. So the odd left-overs from your stash would be perfect. I'm looking for any fiber or blend outside of pure acrylic. (I have enough of that!)

- Small, pretty stitch markers, suitable for use in lace or other small-needle knitting Thank you, Cornflakegirly! I'm so excited!

- jeweled/beaded/crystal hair vine/hair comb, in pinks, silver, white, or some combo of those. No I'm not getting married/going to prom. I just like pretty hair things.

- Enough suitable fabric (black, navy, teal, or pink) for making this dress: http://rowena.typepad.com/rostitchery/2006/06/one_seam_conver.html Or if you like sewing and would sew it for me, that would be awesome too, as I'm sort of a lazy beginner at sewing myself. I'm a US size 12.

- lightly scented homemade candles or soaps. Vanilla, fruity or herbal smells are good. Floral not so much.

- Fun pillowcase for either a standard pillow or a body pillow (20 x 54 in.)

- Anything to do with my fannish obsessions - stickers, buttons, fabrics, t-shirts, whatever your crafty mind can come up with.

- A surprise!

Hi!  My names Anne and Ill be turning 27 on September 21.
I live in Oberlin, Ohio. 
Thank you in advance to anyone who picks me, birthday presents are THE BEST!

My wishes
-A scarf.  I love the clapotis, but any knit scarf would be super cool!

-A necklace or earrings.

-Decorations of any kind; I just moved into a new apartment and I have my VERY own crafting room now!  It would be cool to decorate it with stuff from other craftsters.

-A new bag.  Ive been carrying around a tote I made for ages.  I need something new! Woohooo!!  Thank you Alwaysinmyroom!!!

-A t-shirt that says Im not Emily.  My twin works at the local high school and everytime I go downtown all these kids run up to me asking me things, thinking Im her.  (It gets old. Wink)  Im a size Small.

-A homemade sketchbook.

-Fabric scraps you dont want anymore.

-A Learn How to Knit Kit.  I live above a yarn store now.  I should learn!

-Or a surprise, I love surprises!!

About me:
I have an eclectic sense of style.  I love funky stuff but I love natural things too.  My favorite colors at the moment are red, black, grey, and green, although I love all  earth-tones also.  I love tattoo fabric a craftster made me a wallet out of the stuff (thanks again alwaysinmyroom!) and its my most valued possession!!  Laughing, being outside and singing along to music (perhaps too loudly) are some of my favorite things to do.
