Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name and mailing address:
Have you read the Swap Guidelines and understand how this swap works?
Are you a Friend of Craftster?
Have you been a Swap Angel (with proof in profile)?

VERY IMPORTANT: Remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0


How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This is a pretty new style of swap, and it works differently than most.

The first person puts a list together of all the things they could imagine wanting that they cant make. YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF SIX.

Then people will read that list, and see if they see something they want to/can make on there. Someone replies to the thread and says I claim Suzie and Im going to make her a pink scarf (or whichever wish they are fulfilling).  When they reply, they will also say "This is my first wish" or "this is my fourth wish, with two received, and one sent, AND I live in Ireland (the country in which they are currently located).  They would PM Suzie to get her info to mail it.


Then comes the fun part!  You get to post your list of wishes!
(Please have your wish ready, this swap moves very quickly!  Please include your country at the start of your wishlist)
Then someone picks you and fulfills ONE of your wishes.
Then they post their list, and so on.

***Please remember the last person who posted their list is up for grabs***

Friends of Craftster are allowed 3 wishes at one time, others are allowed 2 wishes.  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish until your craft is received.  Do not choose over your given limit.  Become a Friend of Craftster!  Go here: https://www.craftster.org/subscribe.phphttps://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php

If you are at your limit of wishes, you can choose again once one of your partners receives, NOT when you send.
***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***

Let's keep the quality high here. I don't want to receive PMs with people concerned over the lack of quality of their items.  Please, just work your hardest to keep the bar high on the quality of items here!  Don't choose just for the sake of choosing, choose to make someone else a really AWESOME wish!

Now if the thread gets in a rut for a few days/hours, the person who made the last wish should add to their list if they can think of anything else, until someone decides to craft for them.
Unsure of where to find wish ideas?  Try the previous ongoing wish swap galleries or any other gallery on craftster.  Look through your fellow crafters wist lists. 


Please be communicative if you are having any issues. If you communicate you still need to send your item in a timely manner.  Communication does not mean you can send as late as you want.  After one week past the deadline you will have negative feedback.  This is only temporary as it will be changed back once you fulfill your obligation for late item(s).  Do not choose to craft an item if you do not think you can meet these deadlines.

- Don't forget to get a DC NUMBER when shipping in your own country!  This will be recorded in your feedback and is VERY IMPORTANT.
-If you are sending out of country, include the Customs Number in your PM.
- Please communicate when you send and receive, or if you are going to be late.  Poor communication will be recorded in your feedback.
- When PMing me that you have sent, note the wish you are sending and who you are sending to.  Also include if it is in or out of country and your DC# or Customs #.

The first person will need to pick from the last list posted in round 13, which was bhean's list.  Here it is:

I got a message from Rain that she received, and would like to claim rosali (if this round is still going) for:

*A pendant or brooch featuring my two cats; I'll send photos (hehe I have many!)

This is my fifth claim? this round.  I'm in Ontario Canada.

Here is my list:

Something inspred by my wists (www.wists.com/bhean)


- Sugar skull molds (oh joy!)

- Unusual Toys for You to Knit and Enjoy booklet by Jess Hutchison - I'm hoping I haven't missed the boat on this one.

- PMC - OMG is this stuff so cool or what  (Instructions would be really useful too)

- Japanese fabric, even scraps are great!

- Japanese crafting books or mags - even not in english is ok

- Resin casting kit

- lampwork bead kit (without torch)

Crafted stuph: 

- this is a long shot, but I'd love a Mamaponcho in black - http://www.mamaponcho.ch/home_EN.html

- I am totally in love with these black, indian cotton embroidered spider curtains!!!! http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/shopping/product/detailmain.jsp?itemID=23482&itemType=PRODUCT&iMainCat=336&iSubCat=854&iProductID=23482

- tablecloth with cool designs - tattoo, celtic, skullies, Frida, wicca - either all over or just in corners/along edges

- art dolls- creepy or fantasy or both!

- a little nestlace with blue eggs - pretty!

- ANYTHING with skullies

- a set of 13 placemats in a cool fabric (I have a BIG family  Grin  )

- black or red skull & crossbones towels http://pixelgirlshop.com/item.php?item_id=533&category_id=54

- Nightmare before Xmas stuph

- Largish black wiccan altar cloth with a pentacle quilted, appliqued, silk screened

-"Daddy" heart tattoo T-shirt for my toddler http://www.hottopic.com/store/product.asp?LS=0&G=1&ITEM=419682&RN=613

- The cutest toddler dress ever! http://www.hottopic.com/store/product.asp?LS=0&G=1&ITEM=242132&RN=615

- A black T-shirt with THIS http://www.jbox.com/IMAGE/3kxkw in red Thanks 6iggle!


I'm a 33 yo SAHM with 3 kids (+1) living in Acton, Ontario trying to fit my art-making in between dinners, naps and playdates....my favorite colours are black, red, purple, cobalt.  I really dislike pastels.  I adore skulls, greenmen, cool stripey-legged dolls, medieval stuph, and general goth-y goodness.  I love ephemera, embellishing, and anything old and crusty....yum.  But duct-tape and I are in a "business, not for pleasure" relationship...I use too much of it around the house to fix stuff

Woo, new round! I claim bhean for something from her wists and probably an additional surprise...

This is my first claim this round. Here's my list.


-There's all kinds of bags and stuff in my wists-- link in signature.  If you pick this, I would love for you to put in a tiny pocket that's the right size for a MetroCard (almost exactly the same dimensions as a credit card). I am always fumbing for mine at the turnstiles.

-a fifties-style ruffly apron with a big pocket. I'd love a full apron rather than a half.

-an Amy Butler weekender bag (long shot, I know!)

-I need a better cover for my sewing machine. I can send you the measurements. I keep meaning to do this myself but it seems to be low-priority! I'd love this to be in a novelty print or in stripes.


-I could really really use a couple more of those plastic organizer boxes (the embroidery floss kind) for bead-holding purposes. They are starting to colonize other boxes in the craft closet. Not good.

-a postage stamp necklace, esp. one with an exotic-looking or Audrey Hepburn stamp.  I love the current (U.S.) national park/wonders of America ones too.

-I'm really into necklaces with pendants now. If this is a specialty of yours, I'd love one from you!  roxybadoxy sent me two lovely ones, but I can always use more.

-I can always use more earrings! I mostly wear them to work, so I prefer fairly simple (not more than 1 or 1-1/2 inch long) with natural or glass stones. Either gold or silver findings are fine.

Stencilled, transferred, screenprinted; things for the boy:

-a t-shirt (size men's L) for my better half, with a picture of Yertle the Turtle. He doesn't like bright colors.  This is my #1 wish at the moment. The boy deserves some craftster love too! 

-Many of the great variety of video-game related crafts floating around here would bring great joy to my household. We like to encourage his video game hobby because it helps him look favorably on my crafts obsessions.


-handmade writing paper/stamped, stencilled, whatever. something pretty.  Pinkangel1979 made me a lovely set but I can always use more!

-blank notecards and envelopes so I can make my own stationery!

-a Sublime Stitching kit or two

-fabric-- a yard or more would be great!-- I prefer cotton prints, for the most part.

-Sulky stabilizer or another wash-off stabilizer for use in embroidery. Doesn't need to be a whole pack, if you've just got some extra.    thank you Tanza!

-another amigurumi. craftydeb made me a gorgeous one and now I am "hooked!" (sorry...) frog? sheep? elephant? lobster? kangaroo? Wink 

-handspun yarn, ideally 4 oz or so (enough to knit a hat)

-handmade soap (please no glycerin or melt & pour). I am told this will spoil me forever. Spoil away!

-a fabric painting/stencilling kit. I'd love to learn to do this.

-a surprise based on my likes/themes, below.

-a surprise from my wists (in signature line)

About me: I'm 29 and live in NYC.  I, like most New Yorkers, wear lots of black, but I love bags with lots of personality. My favorite colors are blue, purple, green, chocolate brown, and daffodil yellow, but I like most any color as long as it's not neon.

Favorite images/themes include trees and leaves (especially ginkgo), books, bridges, star quilt patterns, ballet (not too pinky-pink), typewriter stuff, celtic knots, Japanese/Chinese landscape paintings, Middle Eastern and Indian textile designs, and those fishing villages where every house is painted a different color.  I love things that have camp value, particularly 50's/early 60's style. I do not have nearly enough stuff with garden gnomes on it.

I spend much of my free time knitting and watching the Food Network (though lately it's been Project Runway instead), and I'm always carrying around at least one book.

I am all about using what we already have on hand.

Thanks in advance to anyone who decides to craft for me!

I am going to have to claim Cotneyroo in the name of amigurumi. How can I  resist this?  You know I am a sucker to make anything stuffed -

Here's my list - I have tried to trim it up a lot - and have added A LOT of stuff too - gotta change it about a bit from last month... so if you have looked at me before and thought you couldn't make anything for me... give me another chance!

 I am Deb... I live in Huntsville, AL - home of the Space and Rocket Center and heat & humidity ...   I have 2 kids - a 5 1/2 year old who loves spaceships and a nearly 4 year old who lives and breathes dinosaurs and animals..  I also do have a husband who is a D&D fanatic and a very energetic poople puppy!

DIY KITS:      *  bookbinding - I am totally totally new at the whole book thing!
     * kanzashi making - it would be great for flowers and other things as well
     * chinese knotting kit - I would love to learn to do this!
     *  mosaic yard art diy kit - I got a bowling ball ..I am not sure how to do the rest though..
     * stained glass - I have no clue.. would love to learn how to do this!
      *how to silk screen diy kit
      *how to work with resin
      *how to cast resin pendants!
      *sewing set up I am just learning to sew and am starting out with nothing but a box of fabric and some rickrack! Okay, I am making a pincushion this weekend.
Anything off of my wists..or to get ideas of things/styles I like
Stuff for my kids: 1    zip front hoodies - size 4/5 t for my dinosaur lover(he loves blue too) and/or a size 6/7 for my spaceship/planets lover (he also loves green) 

2  tshirts - my dinosaur lover likes blue especially and my space lover is really fond of green..

3.  the tent/teepee playhouse in my wists this looks great!  I will buy the dowels so you dont need to send them unless you really feel like you have to. Or something like that I also have a card table so maybe a card table fort?  That would be soooooo cool!

Dog stuffI have a few things on my wists list to look at but here is a rundown.

1.  dog beds.  I can actually use a few since I am lazy and hate moving them from room to room all day long...  think cat bed - raised sides.  he likes small confines

2.  a doggie rain coat I saw a sewing pattern at Hancock for one but its intimidating!

3.  dog toys that can withstand chewwing!  No rawhides tho he cant digest them!

Crafty Stuff...
1.     Book - Stupid Sock Creatures!  I am in LOVE with this book and must have it - so I can make them for everyone!  I would totally love someone forever on that one - I am good with second hand too!

2.   purse handles - the more the merrier - like the ones that are for clutches - no bamboowood, plastic I am good with.
3.  a head - you know for modelling hats - preferrably not a styrofoam  faceless one - I'd like something photogenic...

Please no yarn!  I am probably one of the few crocheters that beg for no yarn.  You have no idea how much I have.  Let's just say I donate blankets at the holidays for stash reduction...

Things for me..
1     yard art.  I am tacky. What can I say. 

2     tshirts.   I love them!  I have several embroidery and stencilled or screened tshirts in my wist list for viewing!  I am loving the gnome shirts that I wisted!

3     quilted wall art.  If you make it, I will hang it.  Homerof2 made me an awesome one - I am hooked now!!!!  Must... have....more...

4    fabric bowls/boxes. These amaze me.  I would especially like one big enough to hand out Halloween goodies!

5.  knitted elbow length mittens (no wool!) Dark earthy colors!

6. a xylophone windchime -

7. a valance for my craft room - which is in bad need of sprucing up.  I don't want to hang curtains.. just a valance - something "me" something not too dark. I only have one small window so I want all the light I can get
8. kanzashi - big ones this time around - and maybe that butterfly that is posted here - I have to fill up my shadowbox now that I got the small ones!

9.  this cape.... grey is great tooo!  I luuuuuve this cape I cant have wool though.

10.  anything stained glass except for a butterfly I got an awesome one already!

11. I really would like an apron - without ruffles but more interesting than a butcher style apron... and I need to cover the hooters up too so it can't just be a skirty apron... and not full. Okay. I am asking a lot aren't I?

   Surprise me.  Stalk me.  I am a pretty  easy person.  I crochet .. I machine knit .. I am now learning how to sew!!

   -lightning bolts
   -those tattoo like birds

About me: I am 16 (finally! My bday was on June 13). I live in Houston, Texas and I love it here! I think it is one of the best places in the world. I love sewing and making jewelry. I make clothes and purses. I also make rings out of beads and wire, and necklaces from seed beads and charms. I love hearts, stars, skulls, clovers, anchors, tattoo birds, robots, dinosaurs, texas, pandas, zebras(zebra print), rockets, lightning bolts, musical notes, and basically anything! I love all colors, but my recent favorites are aqua, turquoise, grey and black. I really like pandas and rabbits, but I think all animals/creatures are wonderful. I am currently in love with zebra print! Cant get enough of it!

I have 3 pets, a puppy, a bunny and a guinea pig. My puppy and bunny dont get along, maybe because my puppy likes to chase her around. I love swallow birds, cherries, stars, skulls, music notes and hearts, theyre my favorite symbols/motifs.
