I claim DomUnique for:
A tiara!! (or tiara-like headband)

I'm Karan from the UK and I get 3 wishes
1 claimed/0 sent/0 rec'd

First Iíd like to say THANK YOU to anyone who makes my wishes come true!!

BIG  wish!! ***Stencilled T for my man: AD/HD in the style of Aussie rock band AC/DC
example on my wist page ***

Clothing and footwear:
strappy tank (vest top) with Kookaloo Starr embellished upon it (no sequins please!)

a long sleeved t-shirt with my star sign embellished upon it(no sequins!)

a calf length wrap skirt.

Trousers like these (style not colour/pattern) Easy to make and fantastic to wear!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=161380.0 or 2.5 metres of fabric to make some myself

a shrug like this one in black http://www.wists.com/kookaloo/b0afee5785858cd3f9fe786dffd82495?offset=0

For my home/garden:

A quilted wallhanging tree/leaf themed in greens/browns or autumal shades
A cutlery windchime

Crafting and creating:

Beads: homemade or leftovers from your projects, all styles, all colours Ė except for  pony beads.

Glass etching paste (part used not a problem, I just want to try before I buy)

Rubber stamps and maybe some ink pads, Iíd like a recycle logo and a tree (amongst others!)
Wool roving (for felted dreads and attempting to spin!)

CROCHET HOOKS with wooden or plastic handles (I can't hold metal "sticks/hooks" for long....baaaad hands   ) Just taught myself to crochet so need bits and bobs to help and encourage me. I only have a 4mm hook so far! Some BIG hooks (speed sticks? Speed hooks??) would be awesome, our local shop goes up to 6mm at the biggest

Crochet hook roll and crochet stitch markers.

70s craft books or magazines

Labels like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=40044.0 with Kookaloo Starr on them

yarn leftovers, preferably full skeins but part used is OK too.

Iíve just started to make my own soap so any soap making supplies i.e moulds or essential oils, additives or colours would be appreciated!

 bracelets, brooches, necklaces or anklets. PM for sizes as Iím a big gal (no gold toned findings please) Sapphire and Amethyst coloured stones will match well with pieces I already have. Jade and turquoise would be good too   Natural stone colours are also good; I'm an Earth sign. I have some wonderful, unique jewellery since joining Craftster!

Things inspired by my wists.

Iím Karan, hurtling out of control towards my 40th birthday whilst still clinging onto my misspent youth! Iím married with 2 teenage sons and a pet cat.
My ďstyleĒ is best described as eclectic Ė Iím a rock chick with hippy/Goth leanings and a penchant for ďlittle house on the prairieĒ dresses! (and no sequins  Wink )
My star sign is Virgo
My favourite colour is purple I also like hot pink, black, silver, navy and charcoal grey, turquoise too. Earth tones in general are cool. Colours Iím not fond of are pastels; orange, yellow although a bit in with other colours isnít so bad.
I donít like geometric designs; Iím more of a soft and flowing, curvy type.
Iím very tactile and like soft and strokeable textures i.e. velvet, cord, suede
Motifs I like are stars, leaves, trees, hearts,  Virgo sign, sun, Ouroboros, flowers, Celtic

THANK YOU SO MUCH for choosing me


Use what talent you possess - the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best

Hi, Iím Samsara, Iím in the UK and I get three wishes.
1 claimed, 0 sent

My Wish list

Ethical & Allergies - Iím a vegetarian, so no animal products please (wool's okay, but leather, fur, suede or gelatine aren't!) Iím also allergic to nickel, biological washing powder and artificial perfumes.
I would love some LOTR inspired or Elven inspired jewellery? (Iím allergic to Nickel though!)

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

A jewellery roll with a ring keeper (for several rings), places for necklaces, bracelets, etc. Grin

A car litter bag like this but in different material (skully material would be cool, or black patterned, or purple)

A string of prayer flags or bunting with cool material, or images stencilled on (see below for favourite motifs) There're some good examples here, but feel free to create your own. I'd like them to be able to go outside   

A kimono hoodie Ė This oneís pretty cool!

A black wrap dress.

A long hippy skirt!


A Cheshire Cat Kitty hat like this

A newsboy hat like this, in purple or black or green  Grin

A pair of flared knitted legwarmers in variegated yarn Ė purples maybe? (pm me for measurements)

Iíd love a Weasley sweater in purple with the initial G (for Ginny) on it  Grin
Or a Ginny Weasley hat.

Some washable cloth pads with wings and a fastener Ė there have been some really cute ones that people have made! (A travel purse with dirty/clean compartments would be excellent too, but not essential  Wink )

Iíd love a piece of Celtic artwork in purple for my living room wall. I donít mind whether itís a wall hanging or a picture!

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 Ė mushrooms, fairies, wind chimes, wind-dancers and sun catchers Ė that sort of thing  Cheesy

Fimo decorated cutlery (Two pairs would be great, one for me, one for the BF)

A cutlery windchime

KIY Sock knitting kit, or a wire wrapping kit

Flexible moulds for polymer clay/resin, or some of that flexible polymer clay for making your own moulds, or mini cutters.  Grin

I'd like to have a go at making my own soap, so soap-making supplies/kits would be good; moulds, pure solid vegetable fats (struggling to find those round here), things like that!

Stuff ready to spin! Iíve just learnt how to use a drop spindle and Iím addicted  Grin roving, bats, silk, wool tops, etc

Alternative craft books - there are some fab ones about at the moment! Any craft book in fact, I don't mind vintage or pre-loved!

Something for my yoga practice Ė surprise me! A bag, a strap or something else? I love these!

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

A wand!

A magic yarn ball with a fun project to do  Grin

I'd love a Wizards Chess set a la Harry Potter (I have a board). I know it won't move like the real thing, but maybe in polymer clay, or something similar. Or maybe inspired by LOTR?

Something inspired by my favourite films: Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Pirates of the CaribbeanÖ

100% wool yarn that I can dye or felt

Beads (no plastic please) especially gemstone beads, amethyst, turquoise, rose quartz, anything like that! I would also love unusual clasps (canít find them round here and Iíve seen some awesome toggle clasps on Craftster!) any Balinese silver.

Fabric (no childish prints please) I like jewel colours rather than pastels

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

About me

Iím 38, Iím an art and pottery teacher, and I live in the UK with my BF, 2 cats and a german shepherd dog. Iím 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 donít like pastels and I canít wear yellows, or yellow based browns or oranges as they really donít suit me!) I love batiks, appliquťs, Indian fabrics and tie dyes. I love tactile things, and things that are practical rather than decorative. I enjoy yoga, reading and crafting, particularly new crafts! Favourite themes are cats, dragons, peacocks, nature, trees, stars, Ohms, lotusí, tribal style designs, anything Celtic, Art-Nouveau or Zetti, sci-fi and fantasy books and films.

Iíve included my Wists, but donít feel obliged to produce exact copies, theyíre more a general guideline of what I like or would like!
Hereís some extra information about me if you want! http://samsarasswapinfo.blogspot.com/ 

Thanks in advance for choosing me!!

*sigh* I'm feeling really unloved here guys! Is it because I'm over here in the UK and no-one wants to post internationally?  Undecided I've added more stuff if anyone's interested.....
