All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!

This is a wishlist swap;  post a list and you may receive it! Smiley  Your list will need to consist of where you are from (it's okay to just put your state and/or country), crafted items that you would like (it helps greatly to include links to photographs, tutorials, etc.) and/or crafting supplies.

First: You will look through the lists of the people
who have already posted.  You will THEN pick someone from
there to craft for.

Second: As soon as you have messaged me, the organizer,
telling me who you would like to craft for and your answers to the
I will tell you that you can post a list.

- to be able to post a list you have to craft for at least
  ONE person
- there must be AT LEAST 5 items on your list
- you can be picked as many times as you have items on
  your list
- if you have been picked 3 times, you have to pick one
  other person to craft for, then you can picked more...
- this swap starts fresh each month, so if you weren't picked
  from a previous round, you can post your list up in this round
  (after you've PMed me)

- please use DC#s or get a copy of the customs number
  when sending your packages... this helps greatly if they're
  lost in the mail!
- regular communication is required, so PM me when you
  send and when you receive
- you can craft for more than one person if you want,
  just PM me who you'd like to craft for and I'll send you
  their address!

When one of your items is picked, you must cross it out on your list and thank the person sending the item to you.

Person B wants to have their list posted so they PM the organizer with their questionnaire answers, and what they want to craft from Person As list.  The organizer will then PM person B, give them person As address, then they can then post their list.

Person C wants to have a list up, so they choose from A OR B, PM the organizer their answers, the name of the person they want to craft for, and what theyre going to craft.   Then they wait until the organizer approves them and sends them the address of whom they have picked.  Then they can post their list.

Say person A has been chosen 3 times. For them to be picked more, they have to pick one more person to craft for. 
The organizer (me) will let you know when you need to pick someone else if you want to receive more items.

*If you are going to be away from your postal service, you need to have a third party pick up your package and alert the organizer (me).
*Please don't PM me with your estimated date of sendout.  PM me after you have actually sent the package.
*If you have aversions to animal products or you have allergies that you feel need to be addressed, please include that in your introduction when you post your list (this isn't for me, it's for those who are crafting for you!).
*If you or your roommates smoke, please launder your crafts if possible or air-freshen them before sending.


(Please make the title of your PM the name of the swap)

2. ring blanks
3. hand carved stamp of a bird
4. This bag is ADORABLE. I love the shape of it-
5. I LOVE this doll. ain't she cute-
6. an apron. PM me if you want some direction
7. a felt needlebook (for sewing needles)
8. this little birdie pouch (two of my favorites = a bird and felt)
9. wool felt
10. 100% wool yarn
11. anything with birds on it
12. a cupcake pincushion

Ofcourse I would love anything from my wists  Feel free to use the items as a guide and create your own intrepretation

Would anyone want to be my backup for this swap?  It's really no work at all unless I fall off the face of the earth.

Hi! I'm Sarah in Houston, TX--I get to play for free this round...but maybe I can find someone to craft for right now!

I have ideas of what I'd like, but I'd love to get something that you add your own little twist to.  The only restriction I have is that I'm a vegan, so no animal products (leather, NEW wool--if you want to recycle an old wool sweater into a little felted something or other, that's ok--bone, silk).  Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

1) I LOVE messenger bags...the ones about 12-14 inches long are probably better because they can go more places with me.  I do like the rectangular ones over the square ones though.

2) dolls of all kinds.  Repainted Barbies or barbie clones, stuffies, cloth dolls.  I especially like ethnic dolls (particularly Middle Eastern and Indian/Bollywood style), goth/punk dolls, and Japanese street style/harajuku styled dolls.  

3) anything with camo and stars...bags, wrist/arm warmers most desiredcamo armwarmers! Thanks irid3sc3nt!

4) anything Star Wars (prefer the rebel side), especially Yoda and Ewoks, and either Queen Amidala (Padme) or Queen Apilana.  The only "bad" guy I like is Boba Fett

5) stuffed monsters (felt or crocheted) and felt food.  I have a little collection of felt and crocheted veggies and fruit, and would love to add more!

6)Nintendo style stuff...Mario themes, Lego Star Wars, Harvest Moon: Magical Melody are my favorite games.  Plus, I still have an original nintendo and it works!

7)  Not sure if anyone can do this, but I would LOVE someone to make me a LaLa Orange or Shy Violet doll from Rainbow Brite.  I used to have a small LaLa, but she's disappeared   and they were my favorites besides Patty O'Green.

 Baseball themed stuff, especially Houston Astros, Kansas City Royals, Boston Red Sox, and Pittsburgh Pirates.  I would especially love a KC Royals or an old Montreal Expos shirt (size 2X or 3X) that I can turn into a hoodie!

9) A yard or 2 of Baltimore Orioles or Baltimore Ravens fabrics for presents for two cute little boys whose mommy loves Baltimore.

10) A surprise!!

I think that's it...some room for wiggling, right?  About me...I'm 27, still single (apparently that's a bad thing  Roll Eyes)  , have a cat and 2 dogs that are spoiled babies.  I'm one of those "crunchy" types--you know, cloth pads, would use cloth diapers for any future spawn, prefers "real" food versus frankenfood... I love punk/pop-punk/emo/screamo kind of music (think Victory Records and Drive Thru), especially Silverstein, Thrice, Fall Out Boy, Aiden, My Chemical Romance, and old New Found Glory (not really liking the new stuff).  I love dark shades of pink, red, orange, olive green and black, silver jewelry, baseball, twisted romance movies (Natural Born Killers, True Romance), and laugh at "horror" movies (I even laughed during Hostel and Saw).  I'm not scary, promise!

Thanks for choosing me!
