   PM the completed questionare to me. After I PM you saying you are approved, you may put up your wishlist.
Everyone starts off with one point because they are entering the swap with 1 claim. A point is added everytime you make a claim. Friends of Craftster can have up to 3 claims (kits to send) at a time. Everyone else may have 2 at a time. If this is your first swap, your first claim must be received before you can claim again. You may be claimed as many times as there are kits on your wishlist.    
        Depending on your craftster status, you can have 1, 2, or 3 claims at the same time before you send anything out. once you have reached your max of 1, 2, or 3 claims, you have to wait until one of your items arrives at its destination before you can claim someone.
All claims must be approved by me.
*Send a PM to me and the person you are claiming w/ the subject Craft Kit Wishlist Swap- Claim
*The body should look something like this:
Kitschkween claims kawaiiprincess for a needle felting kit
*Wait for a PM from me saying whether you are approved or not. If you are approved, I will give you the address of who you claimed and your ship date.
*Once your package is received, I will take away a point.

   The minimum package size is Medium, but you are always welcome to send more. All kits must be complete with all the necessary materials and instructions to create a new craft. (Imagine how upset youd be if you purchased a stenciling kit with nothing to stencil on, or a knitting kit without a pattern and/or instructions.)
   You have 2 weeks to ship your package. A Delivery Confirmation/tracking number (DCN, DC#) is required for all domestic packages. International shippers must save their receipt or customs form number in case your package is MIA.
   After you have sent your package, PM me and the person you claimed with the subject craft Kit wishlist swap sent.
The body should look like this:
Kitschkween sent needle felting kit to kawaiiprincess

When you have received a package, PM me and the sender with the subject, craft kit wishlist swap received.
The body should look like this:
Kawaiiprincess received needle felting kit from kitschkween

Please post pictures in the gallery. If you don't have a camera, please inform anyone who claims you so they can take some.

              THIS IS NOT A CHAIN. You only need to post your list once for everyone to look at.
   When you post your wishlist, also include a minuscule bio and what country you live in. Each time someone claims you, cross what they are sending off the list with a little thank you next to it. Also, keep track of the claims you've made and kits you've received below your wishlist. This will be handy in case there is a dispute of points.
   Please only post wishlists in this thread. All other conversation should take place here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=189708.new#new
Everyone needs to post in the conversation thread at least once to keep track of any updates I make to this swap.
   If at anytime you decide to leave this swap, you must
A.Make sure your kits received are no more than 3 points higher than the kits you have sent.
B.Have all your sent packages confirmed as received
C.PM me requesting you leave this swap

I will PM you and leave feedback when you are eligible.

Hi Everyone!

I'm claiming Kitschkween for knitting cables.

This is my first of 3 claims, 0 sent/0 received

This is a really awesome idea for a swap!  I am 25 year old environmental scientist from Detroit, Michigan USA.  I craft with everyone of my free minutes.  I love all hippy, vintage, crafty, cute things  Cheesy My favorite crafts are knitting, crocheting, jewelry making, sewing.  I love all warm fall colors like orange, yellow, red, and brown.  And I'm getting married next fall (YAY!!!) so I'm also on the look out for DIY wedding ideas.

Teach me these crafts!

Microscope Pendant Kit (I have ALL the soldering supplies, just need the glass and some instructions!)
Drop Needle Spindle (OH please!! I have mounds of roving that is just begging to be spun)
Polymer Clay beginners kit (to make beads and other cute stuff)
Lip Balms making kit
Screen printing (a cheap-o version, I know this craft can get pricey)
Knitting socks or hats (DPN instructional guide, I suppose)
Kool-aid fiber dying - Thanks kitschkween!
- would love to make cute, CHEAP, little candles for my wedding
Handbound journal - to hold my ATCs
Fused glass kit
Embossing Kit
Resin kit

Thanks in advance, crafty people!

I am claiming kitschkween for a melt and pour soap making kit.

I am 27 and living in North Carolina. Recently moved out to the "woods" (not really woods) and discovering my hippier side (notice that isn't hipper side...)   Grin

I am vegetarian, love cooking, spend my time knitting, watching movies and gardening. I love green, anything with elephants or birds.  I have a not-so-hidden love of the Star Trek and I love documentaries. I am getting married at the end of September and we've not yet begun planning the wedding.... Since I'm not good at this personal-ad stuff, on with the icing:

Please teach me!

Tote Bag Sewing (for Dummies)
Handbound Journal Kit
Polymer Clay Kit
Shrinky Dink Kit (yes, what is all this fuss about?!)  thanks kitschkween!!!!!!
Needle Felting Kit thanks EOcrafter!!!!!!
Kool Aid Yarn Dyeing Kit thanks calswimgal!!!!!!
Amigurumi Kit
Bath Bomb Kit
Cold Process Soap Making
Lotion Making
Incense Making Kit
Stitch Marker Kit
Handmade Knitting Needle Kit

points: 1
