Hello! My name is Rosemary, I live in Ontario, Canada,  and I will be turning 23 on December the 28th. I am in my 4th and final year of studying to get my BA in Illustration.

I like the colours brown and blue, I want to get my motorcycle license and get a scooter someday, I love pirates (I have a little skull and crossbones tattoo), my favourite books are Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie, and The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde, I like comic books, vidego games (my ds lite being the main source at the moment), and children's adventure stories. You can check out my blog to see some of my art and learn more about my likes and dislikes!

I am in the United States.  Virginia, to be exact.  Here is my list:


-Buttons!  I like nice, big vintage buttons.  I like small ones, too though.  Just send me lots! Wink

-A book purse kit/instructions.  Like this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=114289.0, or this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=128266.0

-Wool felt.  Good quality felt and not the flimsy sheets you get in craft stores.  I want a variety of colors in small pieces, but can only find it in yardage.  So, if you have lots of scraps, please send them my way!

Crafty Goodness:

-I love knit things and have not the patience for knitting.  So, something knit for me.  Maybe a scarf or a hat of some kind.  And please make is soft and comfy.  I value comfort over fashion and love very soft things.

-A knit sweater for my little boy.  I really want a sweater with a hood for him, but I can't find one.  Of course, I would love any kind of sweater - hood or no.  He is 14 months old, but almost in size 2T right now.  He's my future linebacker.

-More notecards!  I've received two sets of notecards from crafsters, but I just can't get enough.  I love being able to send notes in the mail and I love all the pretty designs different crafters come up with.  So, design me anything you wish, just stay away from cats and religious themes Wink.  I like to send pictures in them, so at least 3.5"x5".  And please include envelopes Wink.

-A glass pendant of some kind.  There are some on my wist, to give you ideas

-Something from my wists.  I just started it, so it's meager.

-A surprise.  I really do love surprises, because you usually get what people craft best when you ask for a surprise.  So bring it on!

About me: I'm 28 (turning 29 this month - December 15th!) and have been married for 4+ years.  I have a sweet little boy and am a stay-at-home mom.  I used to work as an engineer and then as a teacher.  Now I'm tutoring and crafting to bring in some money.  I love reading, quilting, dancing, singing, and music in general.  My favorite movies are Moonstruck, My Dog Skip, Singing in the Rain, and It's a Wonderful Life.  My favorite books are Peter Pan, the Little Prince, and Anne of Green Gables.

Thank you so much in advance to anyone who crafts for me, and happy birthday to all!

Hi I'm Hazel and I'm turning 18 on the 24th so great big adultness as I live in England and can now drink, vote and pay taxes.

Here's my list!

- A how to needle felt kit, I've played with wet felting on my fashion course and I don't think it's quite me but needle felting is tres intriguing.

- A needle roll for my knitting needles

- Yarn, I don't care what it is I just have to build up the stash, which reminds me...

- A how to spin kit, I've tried doing a bit of research but it's all been a bit intimidating. Having one set of instructions to follow seems like a good idea.

- Shrinky dinks and other random American stuff I can't find here, namely candy - I've heard of temporary tongue tattoos, I need some! Thanks raina.storms!

- No scarfs, random I know but I have a kabillion of the things and I kinda don't wear them, thanks for understanding you beautiful, beautiful people.

- Some kind of zip-up hoodie, a M or a size 12 UK which I think is an 8 in the US?

- A bag, something fairly roomy and either not too structured or messenger bag style with a long over the shoulder type strap. I can't manage the typical purse ones. Thanks mint!

- A suprise, 'cos everybody loves suprises. Thanks Banga!

I like most colours, generally not big on purple and brown but sometimes I love them so go figure. I do especially like silver and green, I am a natural born Slytherin. I love Buffy, Angel and Firefly, I'm planning to get a tattoo shortly after my birthday and I'm generally a bit (read 'incredibly') insane.

Happy Birthday everyone!

hello there, fellow december b-day craftsters! i'll be turning 20 (old!) on the 24th. i'm going to school in the los angeles area, but will be home in tucson, az for winter break starting friday!!

i like bright colors and girly prints, pink is probably my favorite color, though i love blue as well. i don't like black, brown, or grey as much and probably wouldn't like goth or punk-themed items. i also don't like metallic-esque fabric, leather, or vinyl. i probably wouldn't really want anything disney-related either.

my list:

a panta

circle skirt

crocheted beanie

either a knitted or crocheted hat with earflaps

t-shirt or zip-up hoodie that you've embellished/reconstructed - a stencil or silkscreen would be nice

knitted socks in bright colored stripes

pj pants - you can never have enough of these...bright, cute, girly prints much appreciated!

knitted shrug

zippered tote in a cute print of fabric with a zipper pocket inside, roomy enough for some school books

sturdy messenger bag

purse made out of something that isnt really purse material (cigar box, board game box, candy wrappers, etcno duct tape though, please)

handspun yarn

fingerless gloves (the kind where there's actually a hole for each finger - not armwarmers)

knitted or crocheted mittens

a pretty felted bag

...and of course, a surprise!

thanks in advance to anyone that picks me!!

Hi, I'm Amy.  I live in Maryland and will be 24 on Dec. 23rd.  I am a SAHM of a 15 month old boy, who loves to run around in circles and dance (he's also just gotten into the hitting phase and likes to slap me and his father in the face, oh the joys of parenthood).  I love to sew and stencil tshirts (and whatever else).  I can't knit to save my life, my stitches or whatever they are called are too tight (always have been, my aunt knits and used to own a yarn store and has tried to teach me many times).  I am a little better at crochetting and would like to learn how to actually crochet for real (I have Happy Hooker on my amazon wishlist).  I love to bake and I love my pink Kitchenaid mixer that my husband gave me for my birthday last year.  I love the color pink, it has been my signature color since HS.  I also like bright (kelly, not neon) green and gray and black (because they look good with pink, so really any colors that look good with pink, because I wear a lot of pink), but I don't like orange or yellow very much.  I am a Legend of Zelda nerd (I have 2 LoZ tattoos). 

1- A new carryall/diaper bag/tote deal.  I have had plans to make one since my son was born (I have made one and I don't like it anymore, it falls off my shoulder and it's too wide (more like a box).  I have very specific needs for this.  I would like it to have both handles that I can hold or sling onto my shoulder as well as a strap that I can wear across my chest (because bags fall off my shoulder when I am pushing the stroller) but just an across the chest bag (like messanger style) would be fine.  It needs to have lots of pockets (big and small for diapers/wipes/cellphone(ugh)/sippy cup/changing pad) as well as a keyring holder thingy and plenty of extra room for my little bag of goodies (a matching one would be awesome, but I do have a pink terry one), snack containers and such (I carry around a ton of junk).   I think that's everything.  Oh and I like retro prints, polka dots, nothing really flowery/girly, stripes/blocks/squares, something like that.  It should be sturdy, but not stiff, the bottom should hold it's shape but the body should conform to my body somewhat (so it's not all over the place).  Here are 2 that I think are neat...  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136305.0 and https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136305.0

2- A black panta (I have been eyeing these for ages) (I noticed almost everyone else has a panta on their lists, too!)  THANKS jesintexas! (I sure hope I spelled that right!)

3- Anything from/inspired by my amazon wishlist (http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/3MXUPCGLSKH4G/ref=wl_web/)

4- Anything from/inspired by my wist (http://www.wists.com/amystagner)

5- I am a bias tape addict.

6- I love fabric!

7- A new long wallet that will also fit a small pocket calender in it would be awesome (the pockets in the one I have been using that I made don't hold my cards very well).  Lots of card slots, please.

8- A hooded scarf (preferrably knitted) it a neutral color. (There's one on my wist)

9- A how-to-crochet kit

10- A surprise!

Thanks and Happy Birthday, fellow December birthday havers.
