I claim Kitty1256 for craft supplies, teas, and a surprise Smiley

This is my 4th claim, 1 in transit and 2 received.

I am in Ontario, Canada.

My wishlist:

crocheted/knitted corals/anenomes/other reef creatures (I am trying to build a crocheted coral reef around the base of my aquarium).  Look here for ideas http://www.theiff.org/exhibits/reef.html

fibers other than wool for spinning (soy, angora, etc)

handspun yarn

recycled sari yarn or any other very unique yarn

a magic yarn ball (I had so much fun with the first one!)

200g of lace weight yarn in green, blue, or purple

something (tote bag? stuffie?) inspired by a sugar skull robot - the only example I have is a picture of a tattoo lol http://www.zhippo.com/NateBeaversHOSTED/images/gallery/nate%20beavers-robo%20skull-gallery1.jpg

a slide pendant inspired by the Vintage Fairies at www.sallyjean.com  I love the creative fairy with the saying "sometimes there was a storm in her brain".  I also love the art fairies with the saying "I must make art".  Or a Salvador Dali inspired one with the quote from my siggie.  Or a Van Gogh inspired one with the quote "I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate"

set of mini beaded icicles: I have a crochet christmas tree, maybe 16 inches tall, that I want to put beaded icicles on (they don't need to be white, but light colours/irridescent/translucent would be good, and 1.5 - 2 inches tall each).  I had planned on making them myself, but I have been having eye trouble and can't focus for long on small beads

polymer clay crochet hooks

fused glass pendant (I like ones that are kinda arty, or have a picture in them:

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136530.0 
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136531.0 )

fabrics from around the world (kimono silks, african dyes & batiks, etc)

very sheer, see-through fabrics for layering on wallhangings - nets, tulles, scrims, gauzes, etc.

varied weights & types of stabilizers for machine embroidery (cut-away, tear-away, heat-away, wash-away) -- I want to play!

setacolor xpandaprint

back issues of Quilting Arts magazine (I have issues 21,22,23,24)

shiva paintstiks

About me: I am 34, soon to be 35.  I have a hubby, 3 year old daughter, dog, cat, lovebird, fish.  I work at home as a programmer.  The free time I get is mostly spent sewing, creating wallhanging art quilts, and knitting/crocheting.

About me: Hi.. My favorite colours are black, red and blue. I love black and white together as well as black and red. Although I am not at all picky with colours, I love all of them! I have a puppy and a bunny as pets, my puppy thinks they are friends but the bunny thinks differently! I love printed fabrics, fun vintage/retro ones, and bright loud fabrics as well. Im really into dolls right now, specifically Blythe, Pullips and DALs and have my fifth doll coming to me soon.

Yup - keep yer eyes peeled (how DOES one peel an eye.... nah, that's pretty gross)

I'll be organizer, with SevsOnlyGirl as my ever-capable co-organizer.

Anyone who messes up has to send me chocolate! (dark only, I'm kind of picky!)

Thank you all for making this such an awesome swap!

The swap is now closed for business - I am off to bed and first thing in the morning I will leave feedback for those that have their packages all delivered. For those that did not swap this time around, I will contact a moderator to have your in progress feedback removed.  For those that have packages yet to be delivered or even shipped (hey, everyone gets that two weeks you know!) your feedback will be updated as soon as your packages are safe and sound in their new homes.

I do want to say that the next few weeks is always the hardest for those that are in limbo - waiting for packages to get to where they are going.  Please be good to your sender and pm me as soon as you get your crafty goodies this way your sender can be released from the swap - especially those that are at their 5 max, getting feedback is always a welcomed thing.  I do live on my computer more or less and update as often as I get things in so as soon as I know, I will get you all updated and feedback taken care of.

I'll be still collecting dc#s and customs numbers from our US participants and requesting from the outside US participants to hold on to those receipts and if you do get a customs number of some sort, please pass it along to me.

I look forward to seeing more pics in the gallery.  It is probably my favorite thing about swapping - seeing the creativity that everyone here has.  Every OWS swap always opens me up to something that I had never seen/considered/tried and for that I have to thank everyone here.  You guys all are awesome! Wow, do I sound like I am winning an Emmy or what?

Thanks for tolerating my bookkeeping errors here or there, my dry sense of humor which can be misinterpretted unless you know me and my quirks.

The swap is officially taking a nap until it wakes up again in OWS19
as seen here...

see you all on the other side...


oh one last thing - did anyone at all notice my Pee Wee's Big Adventure monologue on page 1?Huh!!!  Aww come on - all swap long nobody said diddly about it!
