OK, I claim Kristen81 for fabric. Smiley

This is my first claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

Here be my list:

*A knee-length A-line or wrap skirt in a fun retro print. Machine washable, please. I can PM you my measurements.

*Something wearable with Hello Kitty on it, preferably in the vein of the HK stuff at Hot Topic or Tarina Tarantino’s Pink Head collection.

*Something wearable and fun related to Doctor Who (Ninth or Tenth Doctor era - no Fourth Doctor scarves, please Smiley ).

*Some kind of shirt with a Union Jack on it. I wear a large, or extra large if it’s snug and stretchy.

*A microscope slide necklace featuring a vintage cowgirl, pinup girl, or some sort of tattoo art (leaning more towards the hearts and flowers and swallows and cherries end of the spectrum and less towards the “man’s ruin” and snakes and skulls end).

*A hoodie embroidered, stenciled, silkscreened, etc. with any designs/motifs listed above. Can be a T-shirt or sweatshirt, short-sleeved or long (or ¾ sleeve, for that matter), and recons would be supercool.

*A newsboy hat in black or some tweedy (non-wool) fabric. I apparently have a big head, and lots of standard-sized hats don’t fit me, so I will probably need to PM you with the measurement.

*Cute, machine-washable cloth headbands.

*A black crocheted snood.

*Any ATCs you see fit to send me.

*A case for my circular knitting needles.

*Supplies for doing altered books and ATCs: papers, rubber stamps, ephemera, ink pads, cool pens, gel medium, etc.

*If you happen to be in the UK, pretty much any junk food is good (cheese and onion crisps… jaffa cakes… Whole Nut bars… *droooooool*).

*Funky flavors of Pocky. All I can find around here is chocolate and strawberry.

This is why I suggested attack dogs, but no, my mother wanted an alpaca.- Logan, Veronica Mars

This is my first wish this round and I'm in England.  Grin

My Wish list

Ethical & Allergies - I’m a vegetarian, so no animal products please (wool's okay, but leather, fur, suede or gelatine aren't!) I’m also allergic to nickel and artificial perfumes.
I would love a LOTR inspired Elven head-dress like the ones Arwen or Galadriel wear! (Okay, I can hope, can’t I?) Or any sort of Elven inspired jewellery?
(I’m allergic to Nickel though!)

I adore this lotus necklace

Knitted and Crocheted
My babies would love you forever if you made them a kitty pi!

Arigurumis – I would absolutely LOVE a Captain Jack Arigurumi!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=104545.0
*sigh* If I can’t get Johnny Depp into my bed, I’ll make do with Jack Sparrow!!

Or a dragon?

A fiber necklace like the ones from Enchanted earth! http://www.jade.enthuzed.net/11.htm
I love ‘Truffles’ and ‘Autumn Leaf’, actually, I love ‘em all!!

A pair of patchwork cushion cases in purple please.

A kimono hoodie – This one’s pretty cool!

A black wrap dress.

A long hippy skirt!

Some washable cloth pads, with maybe a travel purse with dirty/clean compartments please? (I gave up buying disposable pads and tampons last year and I’ve never looked back. My body feels so much healthier!)

Fabric hair bands – with elastic at the bottom

PJ or yoga pants

A hair towel with maybe an ocean-themed motif on it (I have long hair – halfway down my back!) My bathroom is green

I’d love a piece of Celtic artwork in purple for my living room wall. I don’t mind whether it’s a wall hanging or a picture!

A new swap journal – mine is about full!

A CD with vintage images on for crafting

Something for my garden? If it tinkles, twirls or makes a noise, that would be great! I live on top of a hill so there is always a breeze in my garden. It would need to stand up to the English weather though! Or some kind of artwork, or sculpture? I have a sort of enchanted garden theme going on – mushrooms, fairies, wind chimes, wind-dancers and sun catchers – that sort of thing  Cheesy

DIY Kits –
Teach me something new, I love to learn new stuff!

Needle felting…I’ve tried wet felting, but never needle felting! I’d love to have a go!

Resin casting…I’ve never tried it and would love to! I can’t get the stuff round here! I’d love to make some bottle-cap jewellery – thanks to the BF I have lots of bottle-caps!

Lino cutting or a stamp carving kit.

Sock knitting.

A book-binding kit.

I’m planning to make a Rapunzel scarf, so any gorgeous scraps of yarn, trimmings, ribbons or anything else I can put in would be appreciated! They must be at least 10 ft long please and preferably purple, pinks, turquoises or emerald tones! Glittery stuff is welcome too  Wink

Nickel-free or low-nickel coloured wire, preferable gauge 20 or higher (thicker stuff please) I can only get gold or silver-tone wire in my town!

Japanese craft books or magazines.

Something for my belly-dancing – I have a sort of gothic costume that I’m working on at the moment (black and silver) – how about helping me?  Grin

Anything from/inspired by my wists http://www.wists.com/Samsara

About me

I’m a 38, I’m an art and pottery teacher, and I live in the UK with my BF, 3 cats and a german shepherd dog. I’m basically a hippy-gothy chick, my favourite colours are purple, black, turquoise and emerald green, although any strong colours are also cool especially rainbows (I don’t like pastels and I can’t wear yellows, or yellow based browns or oranges as they really don’t suit me!) Also I'm not keen on floral fabrics, unless they're oriental or hippy, or if they’re appliquéd onto something else – I’m really into appliqué at the moment! I love batiks, Indian fabrics and tie dyes. I enjoy yoga, reading and crafting, particularly new crafts! Favourite themes are cats, dragons, peacocks, nature, trees, stars, Ohms, lotus’, tribal style designs, anything Celtic, Art-Nouveau or Zetti, sci-fi and fantasy books and films.

I’ve included my Wists, but don’t feel obliged to produce exact copies, they’re more a general guideline of what I like or would like!
Here’s some extra information about me if you want! http://samsarasswapinfo.blogspot.com/

Thanks in advance for choosing me!!

I claim Samsara for supplies for a Rapunzel scarf, some felting needles plus some extras.

Here's my wishlist

but with a slightly larger hole in the centre. I want to thread them on to my Rapunzel scarves. Any colours except black, grey, navy, orange, green and yellow.

- a flowery crocheted bag with a flap and a shoulder strap in plain chocolate brown cotton. Needs to be at least 12 inches wide and 9 inches high as I carry a lot of stuff around.

- I would love a pair of knitted pure wool socks in berry, grape, claret or purple tones, preferably not striped. My shoe size is US 8 1/2 or Australian/UK 8

- A "Sewing Goodies" bag in my fave colours https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73010.0

ANYTHING ON MY WISTS except roving (I'm trying to de-stash roving)

I live in Australia. I have dabbled in lots of different crafts, but have finally found nirvana in feltmaking and needle felting.  I also love creating Rapunzel scarves and doing swaps.

or anything 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 anything inspired by the Salvador Dali quote in my siggie, or the Van Gogh quote "I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate"

or anything inspired by the animal axolotl http://www.bogleech.com/pkmn-axolotl.jpg

anything zombie related for my hubby

anything super mario or animal crossing related

needle felting kit

wet felting kit

messenger bag kit: I have the fabric (dark blue), but I'd love instructions for one with a zip pocket and divider inside, plus any hardware (strap, zip, anything else I might need!)

"surprise" diy kit to get my craft fix on an upcoming trip - it needs to be compact, and complete, and I'm willing to try my hand at just about anything


felting needles

chocolate is always welcome  Wink

wool roving

other fibers for spinning (soy, angora, etc)

handspun yarn

recycled sari yarn or any other very unique yarn

a magic yarn ball (I have so much fun with these!)

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

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.

100% cotton fabrics for quilting

back issues of Quilting Arts magazine (I have issues 21 and up)

any quilt magazines you no longer want/need!

About me: I am 35.  I have a hubby, 4 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.  My favourite colours are purple, blue, pink, green, and any variety of earth tones.  I love nature and natural designs, retro, modern, etc.

I claim gatheredthreads for something super mario related. This is my first claim and I have two wishes.
I'm from Ontario, canada and have no known allergies.

My list in no particular order:

- A swap journal Smiley I would love to be able to keep track of my swaps

- a new purse - maybe roughly 8 X 8ish. I like black or any other dark colour (browns, blues or greens). Bright accent colours are welcome to (especially orange). I'd prefer a strap that is more longish then short (I like wearing my purses across my shoulders and sitting on my hip) 

- some new toys for my two cats, they seem to keep losing them

- zip up hoodie - inspired by this one - I prefer black

- japanese/kimono fabrics - scraps are most welcome as well

- a magic yarn ball sounds fun as well

- magnets for my fridge

- Amigurumi patterns or amigurumi's themselves

- Any Japanese craft books or magazines

- any crochet or knitting magazines

- surprises are also welcome

- I also love flavored lip balm - I am always looking for new ones Smiley

- pillows for my couch - my old ones died. My couch has browns, tans and a bit of orange in it. Even just the cases for it, I can
stuff or shove my own pillow stuff into it Smiley

- some of those menstral cloth pads. Ive been wanting to try them for awhile now

- jewelery - earrings and necklaces - i love stars and medievel inspired stuffs ( i prefer gold toned bases/posts/clasps over
silver but Silver toned would be alright to Smiley

- candy/ or chocolate are also welcome any time

About me: Im a 27 year old who has lives in Ontario, Canada.I'm still trying to decide what I want to do with the rest of my life but love to design things. I love learning new techniques and new things. Thats probably why I can't seem to focus on one area of crafting - I keep jumping from one thing to another as my imagination keeps turning Smiley I really like dark colours and earth tones (browns, greens, blacks) but also have a love for the colour orange and silver. I love stars, dragons, all the old 80's cartoons that I grew up with (scooby, smurfs, Jem, Rainbow brite!). I really have a love for medievel movies and anything inspired by it. Some of my favorite
movies are Harry Potter, Lotr, labryinth, the GOONIES!.

I really am not hard to please. I'm sure I will love anything that anyone decides to make for me Smiley Thanks in advance to anyone who
decides to craft for me.
