Please bookmark this thread and/or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.

How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!

Try to imagine a chain.  The first link is the first person whose wish list is on page 1 (Person A) - that will be the craftster member who was the very last wish list from previous month's swap.

Someone (Person B) will claim Person A for some item on their wish list.  They post a reply to the thread that says I claim Person A for [item].  This is my X claim (however many times they have picked someone for example, "this is my fourth wish, with one sent, and three received, (meaning that this is the fourth claim they've made, one is in transit to it's destination, and three of the items have been received by the people they previously claimed).  Also add your location, and any preferences or aversions I live in Wisconsin USA, I am a vegetarian, and I am allergic to wool.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!  This means you need to post who you are claiming and for what, how many claims you have made, including how many in transit and how many received, and your location/preferences/aversions.

Then comes the fun part!  After the introduction, Person B is the last link in the chain, and they post their wish list!!!  YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF SIX.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.

(Please have your list ready, this swap can move quickly!  Please include your country at the start of your wish list). Person B will also PM Person A to get her address so they can mail the item when it is finished.   

Along comes Person C, who claims Person B for something on their list and the chain is built, link by link.  (If Person C wanted to make Person B a purse AND a stuffie, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  Then they post their list, and so on.

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.

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.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.

I will be giving feedback in the following way:
-  great swapper: for those who follow all the rules
-  good/poor communication:  where applicable
-  sent late/early: where applicable
-  no dc number: failed to comply with the rule about using a delivery confirmation number for packages within your own country
- didn't post pictures: failed to post pictures of what they received without an adequate explanation to their partner

Previous Swap Rounds:
If you are confused in any way by how this works, please look at some previous rounds:

witchybelle4u2 for Round Thirteen:

irid3sc3nt for Round Fourteen and Fifteen

Miss Mermaid Strikes Back for Round Sixteen

Dulcinea for Round 17

A gentle reminder..
This thread is for posting up your lists -Let's all try to keep the chit chat to a minimun on this board - not because I am antisocial. I am longwinded actually.  It is just hard to see who's list is up - each message makes the last list that much further away - and thus more difficult to locate.  Let's all try and keep it as easy as possible!  Pm someone to ask questions and thank them - you gotta send them your address anyway!

Please pm craftydeb and SevsOnlyGirl with your dc# and/or customs numbers so we can get you updated - SevsOnlyGirl is also an organizer!!

Please remember to put your I claim ____ for _____ this is my (1st,2nd,3rd) claim... in your claiming! 

Most of all - have fun!

The Swap Gallery!

It's here!  It's here!  It's finally here!

Late, no communication

Please remember to pm Craftydeb and SevsOnlyGirl when you post out -
US Senders - include your dc or lc# (customs numbers are usually on your receipt - they scan the package and it has a special number all to itself.) Hold on to your reciepts - we have all seen a package just not make it for not good reason except for a customs officer wanting a new crystal necklace!  Take pictures if at all possible - same reason - you never know when it might disappear!  CYA you know!  Not to mention - your partner might not have a camera or might have technical difficulties in posting pics!  CYA ladies/gents (do we have any gents? We need at least one. Someone talk a dude into joining the swap!!)

Please bookmark this thread as chitchat is really being discouraged.  I want to keep the thread nice and clean - a gallery will be up shortly too!  I want to keep the thread as easy to follow as possible to make it run nice and smoothly!  (and yes, I know I have been one of those culprits in the past but I really want to make a clean start on this one)
that also includes the I would pick you but I can't... it makes the person's list that much farther back for people to have to figure out who they can pick from...

this little soapbox will be edited out once the first list is posted and then the claiming can begin!

On this very night...
10 years ago...
along the same stretch of road...
in a dense fog...
just like this...
I saw the worst accident I ever seen...
There was this sound...
Like a garbage truck!
Dropped off the empire state building!
And when they finally pulled the driver's body...
From the Twisted... Burning... Wreck...
It looked like...
hooo hooo hooo hooo hooo haaaah!

Yes sir...
That was the worst accident I ever seen...

The amazing Dulcinea is going to post up the last person to grace OWS17 for me ... since she is going to play taxi driver tonight (no not in a Robert di Niro kind of a way... more like you better clean your room tomorrow since I am doing this... kind of a way...!)

A huuuuge hug for D for running an amazing 2 months of OWS.  I hope to be able to fill those shoes at least a little bit!

Happy 2007, everyone!  Don't forget to write the new year when you start writing those checks!

Deb, here's your first person... Kitty was the last claim in 2006

Anything inspired by my wist

A magic yarn ball!  I really want one, and I am doing round 3 of the swap, but if someone wants to make me one ahead of time... Wink

Yarn like this:

Any hand-spun yarn

Any hand-died yarn

Any knitting supplies (needles, left-over yarn that you might have, stitch markers, stitch holders, etc)

Any sort of DIY-kit, especially for bath bombs, soaps, lotions, lip balm, reisin (sp?), but really anything...I pretty much only know how to knit and sew.

Anything having to do with "The Wizard of Oz" (my favorite movie)

A college care package with food (ramen noodles, kool aid, rice-a-roni, snacks, tea, coffee, etc).

Anything with Western Michigan University on it (my school)

Any craft supplies that you are dying to get rid of...thread, zippers, ribbon, yarn, needles, fabric, whatever!

Felt Monster(s)

I badly need a clock in my apartment

I would love a crochet scarf or hat since I don't know how to crochet...or a knit scarf or hat or mittens would be cool too. Thanks, dontlookback!! (Though if anyone wants to make me another scarf or hat, that would be awesome too!)

Your old issues of crafting magazines that are just sitting around

I would also really love to try some new teas...I mostly only drink...lipton...cause I am poor. Haha!

A Surprise

Any original artwork or photography to hang on my walls in my apartmenr (I have white blank walls...boring!)

A tote bag to carry my knitting in

A new pillowcase, maybe with some cool quote embroydered on the hem or a quilted pillowcase, or even one made of cool fabric

Most of the things I like are on my wist...so check that out.  Smiley

Thanks in advance to anyone who chooses me!!

Veni, Vidi, Velcro
I came, I saw, I stuck around

Taking a break from swaps to get some stuff under control.  Email if you need me.

I claim roxybadoxy for something from her wists.

Here's my list.
Hand made things:

-Swap Journal. I would really love to get one.
-Wallet with pockets for coins and cards
-Knee high socks
-Something inspired by my wists www.wists.com/heini
-Bag, a tote maybe, where I can keep a crochet project. It needs some kind of closing mechanism or cats steal the yarn balls.


-Yarn. Some vegan yarn like soysilk or hemp would be nice.
-Tatting kit
-Stamps and/or inkpads. I like to use clear polymer stamps, but rubberstamps are cool too.
-Stuff that can be used in card making or altered books. Nice papers, brads, paper punches, stickers...
-Craft magazines or books.

My name is Heini. I'm 26 and live in Finland with my boyfriend and two cats. My favourite colours are black and red. Generally I like dark colours and I don't like yellow or pastels. I'm vegetarian, so no leather, fur, silk or gelatin please. Wool, except merino, is ok. Things I like: Art Nouveau, foxes, mushrooms, Twin Peaks, Monkey Island, spirals, (girly) skulls, paisley, goth/punk stuff. PM for more information.

I claim Heini for a wisty surprise.

This is my first claim this round, and I live in Wisconsin, USA.

wish list!

handspun yarn - any color, any weight, as long as it's enough to make something out of it

hand painted yarn - do you love to Kool-Aid dye?  i'm in an apartment, and I'm massively afraid to try it here... so if you love to dye the yarn (specially the painted technique) and wanted to send the results, I'd probably be your best friend for life!

felting yarn - bright colors, reds, burgundy, blues are favorites

squares to make a quilt - 6" x 6", please.  I'll piece everything together (and post the results).

Unusual writing weapons... i mean, i don't want it to leak all over my purse, but if you had working fountain pens that you just don't use anymore, I'd be delighted to put them back to work!

anything inspired by my wist  http://www.wists.com/Dulcinea

almost anything mickey mouse (but not minnie mouse or other characters, please)

almost anything dragonflys - i really like dragonflies

thick athletic socks with slouchy cuffs - on my wist, there's a pair for the style I like

anything to decorate my BR - colors are off white, sea-foam green, ocean shades through to a toasty light brown

squares to make an afghan -  6" x 6", I think.  I decided I wanted a new afghan, so if you wanted to use up stash, I'll put them all together

ribbons - anything bright color or sparkly - maybe about an inch, inch and a half wide?  we use them to patch jeans, and for piecing together parts for other projects

grab bag/box of assorted craft supplies - ribbon, cool buttons, fat quarters, different color spools of thread - pretty much anything you have too much of and want to pass along, I just cleaned out my sewing box from all the mess, and it's looking really empty!

felted case for my digital camera - so i don't scratch the screen - PM for dimensions.

Anything Philadelphia eagles football for my son, who loves them

long-shots - I could really use some trousers and/or button down shirts for work - PM for sizing

turtleneck shirts for winter - almost anything, I live in them in the wintertime - PM for sizing

a bubba*tink style wallet - need LOTS of spaces for cards, since I have every rewards type card known to mankind

Address labels, for sending out all our packages - PM for details << I got some from ReneeCarol, but need more!

Notecards for enclosing in my packages << I'm getting some in the December wishlist but go through a lot of these!

... right... about me.  I'm the old lady in the crowd, the one peering over the bifocals.  I have 2 teenagers, and my day job is a computer programmer.  I have no allergies, no issues with animal products, would prefer to avoid religion/religion articles and politics at all costs.... my favorite colors are the jewel tones, think ruby, sapphire, emerald... i don't do terribly well with pastels.  We live in an apartment, where space is always at a premium... so small things that sit on tables and shelves isn't a great thing here.

Thanks in advance to anyone who chooses me

About me......
I am 31, live in Massachusetts, travel a lot for work around the world (it is fun, but gets a little lonely in certain parts of the country where i don't know anyone), and i have 3 little doggies that i adore more than life itself. I love tattoos, mexicana, low brow art, vegas style stuff ( i collect anthing dice and playing card related). I volunteer for a small dog rescue which has been an amazing experience, so for those with doggies, you are instantly my friend.  I manage bands on the side, mostly metal and screamo type stuff which is totally fun. I like the heavier side of music but am known to listen to a lot of other types due to being bombarded by bands all the time. I work for an artist who is on the opposite side of the spectrum in terms of style that I like, but he has given me 13 years of opportunities and happiness for the most part so I am grateful no matter what people say about him......
Other than that I just try to enjoy making crafts, especially new challenges and have fun creating! I have met so many wonderful people swapping and that for me is the best part at the end of the day. Due to the travel I have been able to meet a couple of the girls in person which is totally awesome! Thanks for looking at my list and feel free to ask any questions! Rock on!
