I live in Australia and am passionate about feltmaking and creating Rapunzel scarves.

My favourite colours are very deep reds, plums and berry shades with greens. I don't like yellow, orange, navy or grey -  or plaids, spots or stripes.

I would describe my taste as "funky girly" and my favourite flower is a rose.

I wish for:

- chunky hand spun yarn (who doesn't!)

- chunky or textured yarn for me to make into Rapunzel scarves
   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72581.0. I am happy to have scraps from your stash but each piece of yarn needs to be a minimum of 10 feet. Any colour except neons is fine. No eyelash, fun fur or acrylic please.

- angelina, nylon, or firestar fibres

- pure wool knitted socks in any berry shade (no stripes please)

- anything from my wists except roving (I'm trying to destash roving)

- large crocheted flowers made out of handspun yarn in any colours that flowers normally come in (ie not black, grey, brown, neon etc)

Thanks so much to anyone who picks me.

Here are the things from Etsy I love. If anyone of you likes to sew and wants to do somethings similar like this, I'd be forever thankful


I like the shape of this bag, but you could change the fabric. Something blue/green/tourquoise would be great.

I also love this pencil case. The colours are fantastic.


And this is probably my most favourite bag of all:


Isn's it just devine?

Hey! I'm happy to participate in your awesome swap! I'm flora from Germany and love everything handmade. I just discovered my addiction to paper crafts. I got addicted yesterday and am already drawn into it ;P Yesterday I got some wonderful stamps and have been stamping all time now. I also love jewelry making, but can't sew properly. Since I really need a new bag and saw some pretty ones by all you talented craftsters here, it would be great if anyone would like to make me one. Here are some I love:

From this link I LOVE the first one. It is wonderful. I also love the fabric, but any blue, green, or turquoise fabric would by wonderful. Vintage flower patterns would be just perfect. Or something with stripes. I love the striped handles of this bag. The outer bags to put little things like mobile etc into is also great.


This tote is also very beautiful:


I love especially the shape. For the fabric you could chose something in the colours I've mentioned above.

This one is great, too:


However, I'd prefer if the handles are sewn along the outer fabric (if this makes any sense? like at the first bag in my wishlist)

I also love this bag in another fabric: (the first one)


I love this idea. I'm not that interested in pharmacy, but if you'd like to make me a surprise you could take this as inspiration: (I love different languages/and or travel journals)


Unfortunately I don't play golf, but I LOVE this piece:

So you could change the idea to something more general or just make it without any topic at all so that I could decide what to write on the notebook.

Since I'm starting with scrapbooking, I'd also love supplies for this. It is a bit difficult to get pretty papers etc in Germany, so if you'd like to send me something for this hobby, I'd very much appreciate it.

I'm travelling almost every weekend, so this travel bag would be perfect:


I also love the fabrics she chose.

I also wanted to post some ideas from etsy that I love, but their page doesn't work right now.

Thank you VERY MUCH to anyone who decides to craft for me! Your kind work is very much appreciated!

Have no fear, May is here! Cheesy


So, this swap was great! but it's time for a new month! Let's make May awesome to! come one come all! Cheesy
Get those packets in too..... or I will have to get someone else to organize June! LOL (three swaps! yikes!)

This round we had four people not picked for wishes, so the May list will be a "free list" for them. (Let me know that you got the message though.) You post the list without having to pick another person to craft for until you reach 3. Kay?

This means you:

Hey gang! Another month is coming to an end.....
ah time flies!!!
I have to let you guys know that I can't organize next month.
Not because I don't want to but because I am still wrangling March, April and May (of course) And I belive that is the limit.
Can anyone take this baby on?
March was my very first organization ever and it was awesome!!!
Let me know if you can! Cheesy

Hey guys, come check out the June Wish List Swap....

I'm organizing this month, and we don't have any carry-overs, so I need a couple of people to put up lists!  The way we're going to do this, is that we'll have some people put up lists, and then they HAVE to choose a person to craft for before June 15th.

Come on over and sign up!!!!!
