For those of you who joined this swap in September:
Feel free to post any 3 wishes you please (AFTER you've been APPROVED) , they do not have to be the same as last month!

Please remember to send in the form even if you had a list in September. I am a new organizer, and I don't have your information!

You must PM the organizer when you post your list, so she knows that you have done so and can check it. PLEASE DO NOT post anything other than your wishlist (new OR old) and a little bit of info about you, any questions or comments can go here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50691.0

Details of swap:-- Each person interested will post a list of maximum THREE items they want. (Try and list items that you cannot make, but would like to have). These items must be reasonable; it must not be ones that would cost someone a truckload of money to make for you!

-- Once you have given your three items good thought, reply to this thread and post your 3 wishes, along with any other information that will be helpful for those looking to craft for you. (Color preferences, style, size, design, etc)

-- Those coming along this thread will scroll and read all sign ups, and decide if they want to craft for someone. Those who sign up as well are free to craft for another.

-- The catch to this is you cannot expect anything in return for your efforts except a thank you. That is why it's called an unconditional swap. You can hope that someone else or maybe that same person would want to make you something as well and then craft for you. And knowing the great craftsters here, I'm sure everyone will receive something.

-- Each month the organizer will change. All information of the swap will be transferred to the next organizer. An announcement will be posted about this change.

-- Each person can be picked 2 TIMES! This means that only 2 people can send to someone. Within those 2 people, the person may receive all 3 items. I.e. "A" and "B" are sending to "X". A chooses to send 1 item off the list, while B chooses to send the other 2 items. Therefore fulfilling all 3 wishes of "X".
Now, it is not necessary to fulfill all three 3 wishes..."A" could send just one item and "B" could choose to send one item thereby fulfilling two wishes on "X's" wish list.

-- When you post your wish list be sure to mention the country you are in on that post. For example:

I am in India.
Wish 1
Wish 2
Wish 3

-- Once you have been picked twice your name will be crossed out in red on the list. You can be on the list again the next month, when the organizer changes.

-- The crossed out names can be back on the list once the organizer changes (every month).

-- As soon as anyone picks a partner, you have to ship them their stuff within 2 weeks.

-- If more than one person picks a person and wants to make them the same item, then the person who Pmed the organizer first will get preference to make that item.

I would appreciate if you could PM me with the DC number or scan the receipt. And - Please DO NOT write your original post in any other color but black. This will make it easier to sort through.

-- All in all this is sort of a good karma swap. Give unconditionally is your motto my fellow craftsters.

-- All regular swap rules do apply for this. All of you who sign up will be screened to see if you are eligible to join the swap, including Newbies.

-- Positive and Negative feedback will be given for this swap. Your feedback will reflect the number of people you send to that month.

-- When you PM me your wish choices, please include their craftster name, wish # and wish.

I will continue the trend of posting who has chosen who.

Please DO NOT post your lists until AFTER I've told you you're in.

When you have been picked PLEASE crossout and change the colour of your post accordingly (green for one wish, red for two-three wishes fulfilled). If you need help with that, feel free to PM me.

Okay, I have basically my list from the last time I did this, so sorry if it all looks like deja vu!! Cheesy

Hi! From Sydney, Australia.

My wishes:

1. Microscope slide pendant, or even just some supplies to build up my future stash, for when I learn to do this myself! If you want to make it, I have specific images I would love incorporated into it; just PM me for info.

2. Silk Kimono print fabrics...any, but pref with very bright colors, or tiny prints...I would love one of the ones with just a dot print or similar, for background pieces, and linings, and stuff. I don't mind tiny scraps, either. Even 1 inch pieces work.

3. A cute, funky little box to keep my sewing pins in. I have a half-baked wist (http://www.wists.com/mmd32) that can give you a vague idea of my style if you want to have a peek, to get an idea of what I think is cute and funky, lol! THANKS STARPISTE!!

About me....Name, Murali. I'm a 33 yo mom of three, if you include the dude  Wink, currently living in Sydney, since he's from here, though I am a dyed in the wool Yankee, lol! I love autumn colors....olives, celeries, pumpkins, burgundies..wow, sounds like a cookbook, lol Hate yellow, though! I call myself Indie Chick Lite, since I lean towards that, but I am not a true hardcore or anything like that, lol. I like Asian and Scandinavian influenced, esp the clean lines, but am open to anything! I like discovering new stuff! I can only knit scarves, but love to sew, and make jewellery. I want to learn PMC soon, as soon as I can find a class and the money all at the same time! Oh, yeah, and glass canework, too..though I am not sure I can afford to start two expensive hobbies at the same time...ahem. Microscope slide pendants don't count, cause they aren't THAT expensive, heh. I dabble in a lot of stuff, though. I just like to craft. Grin

My name is Emilie and I'm 18 years old. I live with my mom and sister in Stockholm, Sweden.

Here are my wishes:

1. A needlebook or a pincushion. Just something to keep my needles in place. I keep having to buy new ones when I lose the other ones on the floor... Smiley

2. Anything to do with Harry Potter. I'm a hopeless Remus/Sirius shipper... It would be cool with Harry Potter jewelry... Cheesy

3. A crochet hook-holder. I have one for my knitting needles that you roll up and tie with a string, and I really need one for my hooks that are now rolling about on the floor with the pins and needles. Thanks jessicachantel!

Reading my wishes you can probably see that I'm looking for some order in my life... I tend to put things everywhere and never finding them again, but that is going to end! I knit like crazy from time to time. Right now I just found my mother's old sewing machine which WORKS, so now I'm sewing like crazy. I'm learning to crochet too and I used to make a lot of jewelry (but a bead store opened just around the corner from my school, so that's about to change!). Other than crafting I love hiking and photography. Check out my knitting (sort of) blog or PM me for more info!

Hi, I'm Tab, I'm from Wisconsin USA

My wishes are;

1. Knitted Knucks
http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTknucks.html I really prefer the purple "Harm None" ones, but to be honest, I don't need the words on the knuckles.
Cabled arm warmers, I like them to have finger holes though, otherwise they tend to migrate up my arm. And they don't need to be super long, it's getting colder, and these would be wonderful!

2.Something from/inspired by my wists (link is in my signature) Thank you crystalfairy!

3.Glass / microscope pendant (there are some examples of the types of stuff I like in my wists)

I am just starting my first year of teaching preschool. My husband & my anniversary is October 31st. We'll be married for 9 years. I have 3 sons. My favorite colors together are purple & grey, but not a super bright purple, more deep or heathered. My favorite general colors are purple, brown, grey, black, deep orange, and avocado green. I really love old medieval style things, old handwritting styles, old skeleton keys, baroque fabrics, stuff like that. If you have any questions feel free to pm me.

Hello, I am in Minnesota, U.S.A. Here are my three wishes;

1. A magic yarn ball! If you don't know what that is, check out the magic yarn ball swap board and gallery.
2. Handmade or handyed yarn. thank you dishclothqueen!!!
3. Anything off my wists. thank you elabela!!!

I won't talk much about myself here since I have a long blog for swap info. Long story short, I love getting mail, especially since this is my last semester of school and it helps me relax a bit. Thank you in advance for picking me!

Alrighty... I'm posting away...

My name is Kat and I live in Nashville, TN and I'm 28 years old.

Here is my list:
1.  A scarf Thank you Zombie Flesh! or fingerless gloves in chocolate, navy, or indigo.  It's getting cold in Nashville and I think I recently discovered that the heater in my car is broken this morning.  Booo.  :-)
2.  A suprise inspired by or from my wists Above and beyond... thank you Bexiecat!(linked in signature)
3.  A handmade journalThank you Bexiecat! :-)  I fill one jounral up a month so I am always in short supply of these.

My favorite colors right now are brown, navy, red, pink, and teal I think... ooo and grass or kelly green :-)  I am a musician.  I just moved to Nashville.  I write a TON and am starting to get into different art forms and forms of expression (including crafting!)  Does that about cover it?  Feel free to PM me with questioins :-)  Thanks to whoever chooses me.  You are totally rad :-)

Side note... I'm really enjoying the swap this month!  I think I'm finally getting the hang of it.  How exciting!

Hi, I live in Canada and here are my three wishes:

1. My boyfriend and I are spending our first Christmas together in our first apartment, away from our families for the first time. I would really love a couple of home made stockings to put up in our apartment!! If you can only do one that is okay too. We are both 20 yrs old and in University. I just ask that there are no religious connotations on the stockings.
Thank you so much Tanza. I am super pumped! haha

2. I have just started making jewellery and beading and I would really enjoy something to do with that. Home made beads, extra beads you have around, extra findings, instructions to make cool pieces. Anything really!
Thank you so much for pickin my wish constantina!!

3.It's cold here in Saskatchewan! How about a pair of mittens? I looove mittens but haven't been able to find any cute ones in stores.

I am in Canada Wink My 3 wishes are:

1. Stickers - I am a huge sticker collector, and I'd love to receive some new ones (I haven't added to my collection in 2 years now). I love all kinds, but I can't have any fuzzy or scented ones (allergies).

2. Any beading supplies Smiley I love making jewelry and fun stuff with all kinds of beads Smiley

3. Origami paper. I have a tough time finding it where I live, and I've lost my stash when we moved (10+ years of collecting went missing). I'm not incredibly picky about what kinds - I love it all!

Thank you to 6iggle and emapril for fullfilling my wishes! Thank you muchly Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
