Hi!  Happy Birthday to all the other October babies! I'm Rachel, and I live in western Mass.  I work in product development for a craft company (which is not as much fun as it sounds).    My favorite color is green, but I love most dark and bright colors.  I have lots of cats.  I am really into celtic, tribal, and asian art.  I love knotwork, skulls, flames, bunnies, swirly designs, pirates....  I love cheesy horror films, and black and white movies, among other things.  So...here is my birthday wishlist, in no particular order:

- bag for on-the-go knitting projects, along the lines of the sock bug

- messenger bag/ tote bag/other type of purse.  I love bags of all kinds.

- microscope slide pendant/necklace or a DIY kit to learn how to make one myself

- hair things - I wear my hair pulled back in a ponytail, or in barrettes a lot.  I love hair sticks, scrunchies, and barrettes (need to be fairly large, as I have thick hair, and a lot of it).

- cool necklace or pendant/ bracelet/other jewelry

- wool roving for spinning or felting

- mix CDs (no country, please) Thanks, millik!

- stitch markers for knitting

- fun socks

- bunny slippers (i wear a us size 9.5)

- a sewing pattern for a corset

- a decorated wooden crafting tray, to use for beading, small crafts, etc.

- a hoodie...with stenciling or something.  i love hoodies.

- a long skirt.

- an amigurumi pattern book

- this pillow (from Today's Creative Homearts) or one similar to it.

- a swap journal (i need help keeping track of what i am doing)

- anything from or inspired by my wists or amazon.com wishlist

- a surprise!  Thanks, millik!

October babies unite. (I don't want to brag but we are the best month)

My name is Amber and I'm going to be nineteen on October 15th.   

1. Learn to spin kit.  I've really been wanting to learn to spin my own yarn and a kit to do that would be awesome.

2. A silk-screened or stenciled T-shirt. I really only wear t's in a men's large.

3. A bear bag thing like on my wist. 

4. I love buttons that have random sayings or pictures on them.

5. stitch markers.  I really like these lizard ones. Scroll a little to get to the pic I think.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=120737.70 THANK YOU  Danderson !!!! yay presents!

6. Making your own rubber stamps looks interesting so stamp carving supplies, a guide, etc. would be nice.

7. An amigurumi.  I <3 the little foods that are all smiley and happy looking.

8. Some of those pellets for putting in beany animals.  I can't find them anywhere.  Cry

9. handmade soaps would be cool. THANK YOU Knitting_nyxxie!!! yay more present!!!!

10. YARN.  The way I aquired the small amount i have now was by way of my mom's church friend.  SHe just gave me a bag of knotted up yarn. It took me hours but I love unknotting stuff.  Undecided i have no idea why.

11. A bag of some sort to carry crochet in.  Shoving a plastic bag full in my book bag is getting old since I already have so much stuff in there.

12. A duct tape wallet.

13. A headband. i had one made of an old t-shirt but who knows where that went.  Huh

14. Magnets for my mini fridge.

15.  Skeleton keys.  They rock!!!

16.  Painted van-a-like or converse look alikes would be awesome.  Size 10W in women's.

17.  A messenger bag.  I totally need one.  Myne is way too huge. 

18. A surprise! They are the funnest.

I live in southern Louisiana.  I totallly love the Postal Service.  They are my favorite band ever.  I'm also getting into the Decemberists and Amy Ziff.  My favorite color is green, but I also like blue alot. But not together.  I somewhat loath pink.  I'm not very girly, I love the Legend of Zelda, kitties (especially my black cat Apollo.  Cry he's 300 miles away) I love the fact that I'm left handed. And math. I <3 Math.  I think it took me not having any math in college to realize how much I miss it. I love love love crocheting amigurumi.  I think it's the fact that you can see them take shape and they seem to have personalities. 

Thank you everyone  Grin

I'm turning the corner onto my late twenties on October 22nd. It's a dark day for me  Tongue  I'll be 26.

Lucky 13 wishes:

1. A remade/handmade shirt - anything from jersey fabric with a yoke = <3 (This one is adorable! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=90580.0)

2. An amigurumi animal - there are some examples of the animals I like on my wists, I also like elephants Smiley

3. A nice bookmark or two. (I love love love love this one https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=114329.msg1200479#msg1200479)

4. Roving!

5. A needle for needle-felting

6. A knit hat with a bill - not poofy like a rasta hat but more structured and closer to the head.  There's one made by Element or Etnies a few years ago that was a-ma-zing.

7. Your art - ready to hang is best because I'm lazy about buying frames and things.  I like graffiti inspired things, stencil things, revamped pictures, you can see some examples of other art I like on my wists.

8. Some Shrinky Dink material

9. A buddha shrine

10. Embroidery or cross-stitch patterns.  Any really as long as they are NOT country cutesy.

11. Winter just smacked me across the face here in Chicago and I need some lip balm! Thank you VERY much jesintexas

12. A funky coffee cup (Anything interesting, even pre-owned doesn't scare me)

13. Anything from my wists

+1! A cute pincushion in a funky shape

How about just anything so I don't feel like the last kid picked at dodgeball  Roll Eyes

I live in and adore Chicago. I'm enraptured by animals and birds especially strange ones.  I like graffiti and electronic music. I make plush. I can't knit.  I like black and white and black and hot pink. I like earth tones.  I hate purple and yellow and bright orange.

Here's my wists:


I changed a few to make it interesting... Also, anything that involves any major crafting I'll be sure to send you a little sumthin'  sumthin' Wink Thanks in advance!

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

Happy Birthay all the other October Babies  Cheesy

Hi, I'm Becky, I'm from the UK. I'll be 20 on 23rd October. I'm a part time maths student and about to start volunteering in a donkey sanctuary. I love to cross stitch, bead and make candles, I'm learning to knit and crochet and there are about a hundred other crafts I plan to or want to learn.
Things I love:
Sheep (I have a collection), animals, purple, pink, blue, red, black, firefly (the tv show), stars, anything colourful, anything craft related.
Things I hate:
I'm terrified of spiders and insects, please nothing like that, thank you.

My wish list:

* Anything sheep related to add to my collection (I have everything from mugs to bags to toys) - thank you danderson

* beads - thank you trillian

* a bag or a purse (not a clutch because I'll put it down and never find it again)

* a pencil case to replace my boring plain black one

* A swap journal

* DIY kit for a new craft. I'd especially love a sock knitting or a spinning kit

* yarn - thank you trillian

* fabric

* some original artwork to hang in my bedroom, its being repainted light purple so anything that will look good with that would be great

* anything firefly or serenity related (the tv show and movie) I'm a huge fan

* something inspired by my wists

* mix cd. Some of the bands I like are: green day, fall out boy, robbie williams, coldplay, u2, mcr, sugarcult, kaiser chiefs, franz ferdinand, nickleback and many many more. I have a really wide taste in music and I'd love to add to my collection.
- thank you trillian

* anything disney related, especially winnie the pooh and finding nemo themed

*A surprise! Grin

I hope the length of the list didn't put people off. Thank you in advance if anyone picks me

- Buffy the Vampire Slayer anything (Tara, Willow, Faith, and Giles are my favorite characters)
- My Little Pony anything
- Anything else having to do with my main obsessions listed below
- Cute stitch markers (I'm learning how to knit and crochet !)
- Hair accessories. I recently had my natural curly hair layered and cut so it frames my face. So.. cute barretts or something like that would be appreciated !
- Any type of earrings, but no heavy ones please. - Thank you, LaughingLark !!
- An amigurumi toy of an animal (see below for favorites), or a cute food (like a cupcake or something).
- A bag, maybe something for my knitting and crochet stuff ?
- Just about any kind of jewelry - a new necklace would be fab !
- Fabric scraps
- Altoid tins
- Anything for the Pullip I'm planning to buy sometime in the next few months
- A surprise !

Wow, so many October babies ! Cheesy My name is Sarah and I live in Southern Indiana, USA. I'll be 24 years old on the 30th.

My main obsessions are My Little Ponies (any and all - old line or new, I'm a long time collector), Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Princess Bride, Batman (Harley Quinn especially), The Last Unicorn, James Bond (strictly Sean Connery), and Titanic (the movie and I'm also a Titanic history buff). I have two cats that I love more than anything in the world. They're my babies and I spoil them all the time. My favorite colors are light pink, purple, black, and silver. Cats, rabbits, unicorns, and raccoons are my favorite animals.

Hopefully I don't sound like an awful brat or anything, but I thought I'd list a few things I don't care for as well. The colors yellow and aqua, overly religious stuff, mix tapes/CDs (I'm picky), and journals (I don't use them). And I'm not really interested in clothes/fashion or any animals I didn't list above. Smiley

Thanks for reading ! And thank you so much in advance in case I get picked. Cheesy
