This is a wishlist swap;  post a list and you may receive it!   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 and been given approval)

- 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 A’s list.  The organizer will then PM person B, give them person A’s 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 they’re 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.

Thanks for approving me shooting star. 

  My name is Andrea and I am 31.  I am an Texan living in Germany, I am a SAHM of 2 kids 3 and 6.  I love sewing and I focus all my craftiness there.  I have no allergies, but my son is allergic to nuts. 

My favorites:  My favorite color is purple, but don't wear alot of it, wear alot of neutrals.  I am very patriotic, like tigger and winnie the pooh, cows are ok and I am doing my dining area and kitchen in a wine and grape motif.  My BR is americana. 

Note:  I live in Germany, but can recieve German post and American Post.  American post gets to me in about 1 week if sent via first class or priority, all other mail types can take 4 to 6 weeks. 

I love fabric, I am addicted.  I can't find any decorator type fabrics that I like over here and I am also looking for fun fur.  Nothing with skulls or anything like that please.  I am also looking for cat fabric in black and white or shades gray.  Or any pretty dragonfly fabric.  ** I Just bought some fabric to make a diaper bag and I am in need of some cotton denim to use with it.

I love to trim my purses, so any type of trims is awesome, eyelash trims, rick rack, grosgrain ribbon and my new love eyelash rope trim.

     Different Buttons

purse making supplies:  The rings for handles, closures (I already have magnetic snaps), purse feet,  and anything else my purses might need.

6 x 6 squares to make my daughter a rag quilt (think pink)

Beads to make decos for my purses

I love it, especially bracelets and earrings(nothing to big, I prefere simple) and I prefer silver or silver and gold mix.  (earrings from laughinglark, thank you)

I do like this ring http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=343495

I could use a scarf to match my new black and white hat (thank you Kurtzie)

I also like these headbands for my dd (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=391781) and she is girly and loves pink

oh and I saw the cutest Hello Kitty the other day, I will have to find the link it is my wist now

1 inch buttons and magnets with my etsy store on it

Labels for my purses (Shrinky dink or fabric)

or a suprise from my wist, www.wists.com/bagsbaubles(thanks for the suprise laughinglark)
Thank you in Advance to whomever chooses me.....

Hi there! I'm Kristin, in Missouri. I'm a 43 year old mom of three boys.

Here's my list:

Stuff to craft:
(Added a couple things) Wink

 MY NEW BIGGEST WISH!! I need a swap journal! Badly! It would be so much easier to keep track of my partner's likes/dislikes with a journal. Every time I really want to check something about my partners lately, Craftster is down for maintenence. Bites nails! Cheesy I need to write these things down in one place, when I first see them.  Cheesy

If you like to collage things, I'm jumping back on the FlyLady bandwagon, and need a 2'' binder to keep my control journal stuff in. Vintage-looking cleaning ads and/or recipe pictures a la James Lileks "gallery of regrettable foods" mixed in the collage would be AWESOME!

 I love koi, and would like something koi-themed to decorate my home. Or koi fabric. XLadyLuckx sent me a beautiful etched glass bottle and some gorgeous fabric in an earlier swap, and everything was awesome! I'm starting a craftster koi collection.  Grin 

Something for my husband to throw his keys and ID badge into when he comes home from work. I'm trying to get him to keep them in one place, so he does not have to hunt for them.   Maybe a small, shallow tray of some kind? He loves old-time Chicago blues, so maybe decorate it with a blues-themed collage?   Cheesy

A fused glass pendant.

Resin and sequin pendants or fridge magnets! I love the look of these, but since I have athsma, I'm afraid to try making my own. I hear there are fumes involved. Thank you, Bigmouth! I love them!!

I need a warm hat, in shades of blue or green (or both). I cannot wear wool, so it would have to be knit/crocheted with acrylic yarn. Yarn and I do not craft well together, so I would really appreciate this!  TheSickRose is making this for me in another swap! Thank you! Cheesy

I am trying to change a lot of things about myself right nowget back on track with my diet, get organized, learn new things, and tackle some old goals of mine. Soooo maybe a pretty drawstring bag full of quotes that motivate, on slips of paper?  I can reach in the bag each morning and pull out a random inspiring thought to ponder. AmaZing is making this for me in another swap!   Kiss

Craft supplies:

 Bits of interesting fabrics for making Omiyage and small patchwork projects. I love jewel tones and oriental themes. Small scraps are fine, as my projects are almost always small.
If you are de-stashing beads:
Bugle beads! Any size, any color, any amount! I will be using them to make the legs of beaded bugs, among other things.

E-beads! Again, any color.
Thank you,dntysgrplm!!! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Glass or plastic pearls of any size or color. Especially bigger ones (8-14 mm), but I can use anything, really!


  Grin Thanks in advance to anyone who picks me!  Grin

Yay! Round two for the year! I hope this will help.
Hi there, I am 28, live in (beautiful) British Columbia, Canada. I just started swapping and I love the wishlists! Cheesy So a few things about me, I love stars, skulls, giraffes, zombies, monsters and art deco/neauveau style things. I like pinups, retro or vintage stlyes(30- 59) and hot rods.
 Let me see, colour preferences include blue, purple, black and silver/grey shades. I do like pretty much all jewel tones, I'm not much of a pastel gal though...............too fair skinned. Wink
I can't wait to swap! I love making other people smile, even from far away! I also love seeing what people make the best, or how they interpret what I have asked for! It seems to always come out nice, but I would never have thought of it! Cheesy LOL
 So here is my list......

1. A stuffie or amigurumi little pal. I would love a giraffe to add to my collection, but honestly I am up for whatever you make best!YAY!!!! thank you shooting star! you are the best! Cheesy

2. Spinning supplies of any kind, I am trying to get into it and I have a drop spindle coming, but I have been told that one needs to try different weghts and fibers........Cheesy

3. Handspun! I love it!

4. Natural soaps, I love them, but have no time to expand to another hobby. oh well Tongue

5. Messenger bag! I see that this is a popular item! I just need it to be sturdy enough to last a season of landcsaping! LOL

6. A book of swap...........I have seen a few of these floating around, and thought one may be fun, so I can keep track of what I gave and what I received. Design is up to you!

7. A fabric covered binder............. or a cover for a binder! I don't know if sending the binder is logical. You're prefrence. I need to have zippered pockets front and back, and maybe a few page covers........... I want to have a new project book. This was my idea but, as I said, feel free to embleish! Cheesy

8. Fantastic yarn, unusual fiber prefered.

9. I like quilted wall hangings, I don't quilt, this is a issue for me. LOL Cheesy
I love this one! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=95757.0
ooooo or this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=144757.0

10. Shirts that are silkscreened or decorated by hand. I wear a large by preference, but I like the shorter tops, so Iguess a junior X-large is better! LOL Cheesy Thank you Bigmouth! I am super excited to see it!

*edit* 11. I almost forgot! Knitscene magazine(s) I can't find them here!!! Sad and I really love the last one and the one out soon looks so good..........I hope I can find that one!got it! thanks Julia)  I would love it, or even your used copy of Fall 2006 (I really like the Central Park Hoodie!) http://www.knitscene.com/
Thanks, I look forward to playing with you! Cheesy
