**Please send all PM’s to both me and GatsbyGirl. We are both first time organizers and want to make sure everything runs smoothly! You can add both our names to your message by separating them with a comma.**

*IMPORTANT PM INFO*: When sending PM’s, please label them as OWS 21 with one of the following tags:

IMPORTANT: Remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0

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 ongoing wish swap 20. 

Now, we want to put another link in the chain.  People will read that list and see if there is something they want to/can make from the list. 

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 moves very 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.

After you have made your claim, you need to PM that person for their address.

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 crafter’s 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:

irid3sc3nt for Round Fourteen and Fifteen

Miss Mermaid Strikes Back for Round Sixteen

Dulcinea for Round Seventeen

We'll open with dancingzira's wishlist. On your mark, get set, go claim!

I claim velvet rose for some interesting textured yarns (and we'll see what else i throw in...Cheesy) second claim, the other was recieved.
My very own wish list…

I have no allergies, nor aversions to animal products.
1. 1/4 yard or more, of brocade fabrics...any color.
2. Yarn, any color or texture. *I knit, crochet, and make a lot of tassels
3. Lengths of rope , 15 to 50 feet lengths, up to 1 inch thick. Black, Red preferred, but color         unimportant.
4. Scraps of leather at least 15 inches at the narrowest point. Any color or texture
5. A DIY book binding kit
6. Acrylic Paints
7 .Brushes for acrylic paints
8. Canvases of any size to paint on
9. Sassy, cheeky, or completely inappropriate embroidery designs. (drawn by you is great!)
10. Authentic coins from other countries, preferably with holes drilled or bails attached.
11. Extra long chainette fringe (like 30 inches or more) in 1 to 2 yard lengths, red, black, white, purple, cream
12. Cowrie shells with holes drilled or backs removed.
13. Hanks or packets of seed beads, (any color but preferably not mixed together)any size, any type (round, hex, delica, etc)
14. Nymo thread in various colors to go with the seed beads.
Sewn, Knitted, Crocheted:
Belly dance items, of the ATS, Goth, tribal or fusion bent...no sequins or cabaret items please.
Super long arm warmers...black or striped...knit, crocheted, sewn, whatever's clever.
A pair of saucy bloomers in large (I wear a 16 jeans (USA size))
 Little girl style pajamas for me...size 18 (or XL) to be roomy.
Anything along the lines of Goth/ Rivet head/Tribal style.
Rings, LARGE even so large as to be 2 finger rings…
Silver, tarnished, etc
Chain maille ANYTHING
1. Cool stenciled tee shirt for my 3 year old boy. He wears a size 3 to 4 T, and likes skulls, pirates, and wenches. I'd love a hot babe stenciled onto his tee shirt...LOL
1. Hand made leather goodness...floggers, whips, cat-o nines, etc.
2. A Wooden Paddle…*grins* frat style, or other. I'd love a hand made paddle for my toy bag…
1. Anything Pin-Up.
2. Surprise me with wisty goodness
3. Dread Falls...I'd just come unglued if someone wanted to make me some. I prefer Black or very dark brown as a main color, and I also adore red and some white or blonde...I have long hair, so any style or type would be cool.
4. Marble magnets, or resin/bottle cap magnets with pin up theme, bondage/S&M stuff, or horror movie themes…
5. A magic yarn ball!
1. Artwork for my home. Gothic, Horror, Macabre, visually disturbing…*grin*
Bath & Body:
4. Custom mixed incense/perfume oil. I love earthy, sexy scents...anything that says mystery, exotic, dark.
5. Homemade lip balm

I'll kick things off.

I claim dancingzira for brocade fabric and yarn. This is my first claim, with zero sent and zero received.

Hi there. I'm a thirtysomething writer/editor who lives in Los Angeles with my husband and two cats, but my heart truly resides in Texas. My favorite holidays are Valentine's Day, Day of the Dead and the two weeks before Christmas when everyone has the holiday spirit. I drive a cake batter yellow VW bug, but my second vehicle is a pink scooter. My interests include TV, food and chick lit (not always in that order). My favorite era is that gray one between Mod and Glam (think Andy Warhol/The Factory/Velvet Undergound), followed by the 1920s. If I have one regret it's that I don't have the bone structure to wear my hair super short like Mia Farrow's in "Rosemary's Baby." I'm currently into chocolate brown and those colors that go with it -- turquoise, pink -- but I also have a weakness for poppy Gerber daisy colors like pink and orange with a bit of burgundy thrown in. I try to stop eating three hours before bed. I don't always succeed. I prefer silver to gold, gloss to matte, cashmere to silk, heels to flats, red wine to white (champagne to both), pears to apples.

Things my little heart desires (Please excuse how long my list is. I like to have a little something of everything so I won't hold up the proceedings):

Definitely check out my wists, it's going strong: http://www.wists.com/GatsbyGirl

I really want to learn crochet. Anyone want to put together a "how-to" kit to help me out?

Nancy Drew book clutch purse

Long-sleeved, 3/4-sleeves t-shirt or cami tank with applique and/or embroidery (size Medium)

Funky, crafty wrap skirt (I'm a 6, but I guess with a wrap skirt it doesn't matter)

Fused glass: pendant, plate, bowl, tray, whatever (I love me some fused glass)

A small mosaic bowl

You know those crochet hooks with polymer clay covered handles? Yeah, I'd like some hair sticks like that.

A knit corset tee -- http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_4920958,00.html (I don't knit, so I have no idea how complicated this is, so if you're laughing now and going "In her dreams" I completely understand)

Vintage (40s to the 70s, with an emphasis on the 50s and 60s) Craft kits. For some reason, I love those self-contained, "Here's the instructions. Here's the supplies. Go crazy." deals, especially older ones. Extra especially if sequins are involved.

Handmade soap (bars please; it's for the shower), scrubs, bath bombs. All scents are good, except for lavender or eucalyptus. I'm fond of gardenia, rose and vanilla.

Geegaws and Supplies:
   Wire cookie cutters
   Paper Dolls
   Girl/Romance/Fashion Comics
   Fabric -- big pieces, small pieces, fat quarters, fat eighths, scraps -- Mod prints, anything in pinks and browns (seperately, or together), flocked (or just looks like flocked wallpaper), patterned oil cloth, fun toile (as opposed to little old lady toile), sock monkey, Michael Miller, Alexander Henry ... oh, who am I kidding? ... anything you don't want/need.
   Colored Aida for cross-stitch -- 14, 16 or 18 count
   Contact paper/shelf liner with cool patterns
   Tile beads (you know the ones: look like dominoes, but have a hole drilled through it, ready to be made into a pendant/charm)
   Rayon embroidery floss
   Super cool buttons
   Iron-on appliques/patches
   Trim -- Rick Rack, Pom Poms, Bias tape, Zippers, Ribbons, bring it on
   Art books (anything with good decoupageable images)
   Japanese felt mascots/minatures/food craft books/magazines

Oh, and I know no one will make me this, but while rewatching "Goblet of Fire" I went, "I want one of those," about the hats the girls of Beauxbatons Academy wear. I assume you could do it out of felt, but have no idea where to begin: http://www.comingsoon.net/cgi-bin/imageFolio.cgi?action=view&link=Fantasy/Harry_Potter/Harry_Potter_and_the_Goblet_of_Fire&image=gobletoffire78.jpg&img=9&tt=

Thanks y'all!

Handspun yarn
A surprise!

I claim kyou for the chichi sweater, list in a sec!

This my first claim!

I'm a 30 something woman who lives in Indiana.  I just bought a new house where I live with my new husband and our two doggies.   

I'm allergic to cats (and dogs and lots of other things) but as long as the item is washable, it's ok if you have allergants around.

My favorite color is green, but I really like any of the bright primary and secondary colors, especially all together in rainbow like patterns.

My wishlist:

Anything with monkeys, rainbow brite, carebears, or "vintage" strawberry shortcake on it

Handspun Yarn (especially the funky novelty yarns, i'm just now learning to make those)

Non-Wool Roving, cotton, silk, any of the nifty new synthetics that are available now.  I've got a ton of wool and I'd love to play with other things and/or blending.

Recycled Sari Silk Waste for spinning

Buttons, maybe a baggie full, or a bell jar full at the most, or just a few is fine too.  I'd like to try spinning a yarn with buttons in it.

Any kind of other neat additions that I can add to my yarns to make fun novelty yarns

Kool Aid in funky flavors (colors) that you can't get easily in the US.

A needle felting starter kit (I have lots of roving, I just needles, instructions, etc)

A silk spinning starter kit

A cotton (cellulose) dying starter kit

I'd love to learn to crochet those little amigurumi, but I've never had any luck learning to crochet.  So any kind of super super easy stuffie pattern and 'crocheting for complete idiots' kit would be great.

I've heard alot of good things about the cloth menstraul pads, but never tried them, I wouldn't mind a getting started set of those.

Thanks to some fun swaps, I've just started making paper and soap, so I wouldn't mind any new toys to play with those new hobbies.  Little bits of colored papers of any kind to mix in my paper.  Molds for soap.  Additives or colors for either.  Your favorite recipes for making them.

My dogs always appreciate puppy toys, the "big" one weighs about 25 lbs and loves balls.  The little one is only about 9 lbs and only likes things she can eat.  They got pretty spoiled last round, but if you happen to have anything little for them, or if you make homemade treats and want to throw a few in, we won't say no.

Oh, and I have a husband.  Yesh. He doesn't deserve any presents.  But..... He likes Nascar, especially Kasey Kahne & Bill Elliot.  He also loves comics, especially the Flash.

I don't have alot on my wists yet, but anything from there is also great
