I'm Tal, 23 years old, from Israel and I'm claiming la_chrystelle for a razor shell lace cami from ohmystars.net!
I'm a fashion design student that still lives with her parents and little brother, I really got into graffiti lately...
 my craft hobbies are: knitting, sewing, ATCs, painting, jewellery making- anything I can get my hands on.
I'd like to know: crochet ( I know the basics, but I can't figure out the names of stitches and I always mess it up somehow), soapmaking, candlemaking, in some distant future glass blowing.... everything I don't know yet.
non-craft hobbies: I love reading, watching movies, eating (too much), going out with my friends (while bf is playing WoW. the life of a geek's gf..), getting my bf to get off the computer for an hour (big hobby. frustrating.)

and on to my list:


1.handsun novelty yarn
2. swap journal
3.microscope slide pendant kit
4. something to teach me to crochet
5. soap making kit- we don't have any supplies here
6. some art for my walls- I'm moving into a new bigger room. I like fun, retro, groovy images/ patterns
7. message board
8. a box/ bag for my sewing supplies to take with me to college
9. a nice craft apron for sewing classes

supplies/ non-crafted:

1. fiber for spinning
2. any of these new enviroment-friendly fibers: soy, bamboo, corn, seaweed? heard a lot about them and would love to try
3. shrinky dinks: they're dead expensive here and very rare thanks simplyfussfree!
4. lunch box/ bento box: to take to college with me
5. freezer paper: we don't have it here so I use plastic sheets and exacto knives, I'd love to try the freezer paper method

thanks to anyone who picks me!!
( I might add to this list, it was compiled at 11:45pm and posted at 6:30 AM, so on both occasions my brain is turned off.)

Hi, I'm Jana. I'm in Los Angeles.

Okay, Wish list.

-Anything from my ever growing wists list. http://www.wists.com/simplyfussfree 

-Something crafted with realistic foresty creatures on it ( maybe a bag or pillow ) or with realistic looking trees

-Crafted mixed paper journal, small painting, pillow, or bag, with any of the following themes. I prefer realistic looking things. Anything with corduroy is always good. Green and brown are always good too. As are other things.:
Nesting dolls ( more traditional than childish preferred )
The Forest
Hansel and Gretal
A free Palestine
Heronymus Bosch ( I can't spell for beans )


-L.A.M.B inspired hat https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100020.0 I'm so in love with this hat, I could wear it to woodworking class to, instead of tying my hair back or wearing a funny hair net type dealy. Would love one in plain black, plain white, or avacado and white.

-I would love, love, love a lined granny square purse like this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6902891. Navy and white 

-Cute hat. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6151238 . Navy and white or maybe "mushroom" as the color in the picture is listed ( not the teal ).


-I love this bag. I'd especially love it if I could choose out fabric and mail it to you.  http://henriettashandbags.com/black_forest_purse_pattern.html

-A solid black wrap dress ( size 10 ). Or one in an apple fabric that I have and could send you. I have a wonderful dress from Alwaysinmyroom but am starting to wear dresses and skirts more and could always use more.



-black, navy, or white gloves.

-black, white, or navy mittens http://vintagestitchorama.blogspot.com/2006/08/frankenmitts_19.html i really, really want these.

-The eyelet skirt from Knitty on my Wists. I wanted to put it here as it wouldn't let me add any information. I'd like it in green, navy, or black. I'm a M/L or size 10.

-http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall02/PATTbroadstreet.html In black or white please. I can't tell if it has one but if not, if you add a little button to hold them back when I'm letting my fingers be all free and whatnot, I will be your bestest friend...or something.

-The last socks on this page:

-A black cardigan ( slightly long ), I'm not counting on this one but it's a wish list so I thought I'd list it. Or an avacado-ey green one. I think there's one on my Wists.

-Isabeau tote, lined in navy or black

To anyone who chooses to craft for me, thanks loads in advance!

About me: My name is Jana, I'm 27 years old. I just got back from travelling around the Middle East for a bit and am getting ready to go back to school. I like green <3 ( foresty/avacado-y ), and browns. I like corduroy and patchwork. I'm in love travelling and am obsessed with Romania, Russia, and Poland. I like Victorian looking things, forest themed things, Hansel and Gretal, things with trees on them, birds, ferns, bikes, and nesting dolls. My favorite bands are the Arcade Fire, Radiohead, Portishead, Pulp, Arctic Monkeys, and loads more. My boyfriend lives in England so I travel there a lot. I'm back in school ( 2 more years to a anthropology degree ). I don't like: metallics, fun fur, yarn with a sheen ( like simplysoft ), when people clip their nails around me, and when people clap at the end of movies.

I live in Sydney, Australia and am addicted to swaps!!!

My favourite colours are berry shades, dark reds, muted pinks and most greens. I don't really care for black, white, yellow, orange, navy, peach or mint green.

I love wet felting and needle felting, and am experimenting with dyeing and carding. I've also just started scrapbooking - haven't made any pages yet but am having fun collecting supplies.

Thanks so much to anyone who chooses me.  Kiss

I wish for.....


- Silk fibre in any form e.g. sliver/roving/hankies/caps/throwster's waste/rods/degummed cocoons
- No wool roving please - I have way too much and need to de-stash

K & Company scrapbooking supplies  - but only from the following ranges as I'm trying to keep to a theme & a colour scheme:

- McKenna
- Hannah
- Juliana
- Poppies
- Ashford
- Peabody
- Verbena
- Romanza

- Fiskar's shape templates - circles or rectangles

- scrapbook glue, scrapbook tape, scrap dots etc

- a 12" paper cutter

- A rotary cutter
- vintage buttons in flower shapes
- fabric stiffener/hardener (water based please)
- Japanese felting books/magazines
- Clover felting needle refills
- A felt tipped calligraphy pen in burgundy or purple
- fusible angelina film in any colours except neons (for fairy wings etc)


- I would love a pair of pure wool hand knitted socks in any of the berry shades. I'm not really into stripes but a variegated yarn would be nice.

with a loop so I can hang them up (no white, black or fluorescent colours please)

Thanks so much to anyone who chooses me.  Kiss

Hi, I'm Malina, here in muggy Lenoir City, TN.  I live with my cat and my roommate Angel.  I'm addicted to fabric, and really need to downsize my massive STACKS.  Seriously, I have 5 large rubbermade bins and numerous boxes FILLED with fabric.  I am random in my likes.  Just see my wists... seriously, I have almost 1200 things.  I love punk things, cute things, morbid zombie and skull things, asian things, sushi, cats, offensive bad words, many, many things...  I have a plaid addiction too...  I'm trying to find a support group, to no avail...  I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE to cook... and Audrey Hepburn... and retro pinup girls... and cherries...  and and and... old school tattoos...  and tank girl... and well, just stalk me... and James Dean... oh yeah, I'm also addicted to FFXI...n  I like pinup themes, asian themes, old school tattoo themese, and and and...

So, here is my list of little heart desires:

Buttons, buttons, and more buttons.  Vintage would be fabulous!
Various and assorted jewelry findings
fabric.  Yes, I know, I said I needed to downsize... but it's an addiction
fabric paint (I want to try that spray paint kind)
Iron on embroidered patches
Embroidery thread
resin molds
Magazines and/or newspapers in kanji
Vintage patterns.  PM for measurements.

Crafted or purchased:
This one is big... aprons!!!  I have several on my wists, but here are a few:

Shot in the dark:  a chef coat with a skull and cross bones on the back, but instead of bones, a fork and knife

HATS!! to quote Monty Python "People should wear more hats" here are some faves:
http://www.wists.com/587be409f6f5915941a15ea10ee3be6c?q=hat tutorial&offset=0

Shoes - I wear a size 8 1/2 US.  Thrift store, painted, revamped in some way, whatever!

THIS!! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6019860  or similar

Throw pillows or something to cover the ugly ones that came with the house - I don't really have theme or anything, so maybe you can help me start one!  I'm pretty open about what you make, visit my wists for inspiration on fabrics, styles, etc etc

Jewelry - necklaces, earrings, wrist cuffs, bracelettes, WHATEVER!

bloomers!!  I love them!

OK, I went a bit overboard,  Leaves lots of room to find something though, right?

Hi all! I am late signer upper this time, but I loove this swap!

About Me: I'm Joanna, I'm 27 and I'm in RI, USA. I am just beginning to plan my much delayed wedding reception with the hubby. We move a lot!  I'm currently running around like a crazy person, substitute teaching at my old school, nannying while trying to control my own baby fever, and reading lots of books. I love chocolate, the ocean and the beach, books, live music, shiny things, and soft things. Anyone who adds local ephemera, cool postage, or a local postcard to their package gets fun stuff back from me! More info in my blog - see Swap Info in my sig.


- issues of Crap Hound! http://www.boingboing.net/2005/07/24/crap-hound-seminal-c.html
- I love rubber stamps, especially travel, victorian, nature themes or fun unusual stuff. Also any stamps for backgrounds, feathers, clocks, buildings, flourishes, swirls, trees, florals, checks, patterns...
- Anything from or in the style of items on this site: http://www.altscrap.com/index.php
- Wool Roving in cream/white shades (undyed) so that I can make my own felted flower bouquet!
- a needle felting kit for the same reasons as above!
- A Brayer in any size as long as it is under 5 inches wide
- Water based printer's ink in any color, but definitely a little white or black if you have it!
- I need lots of vellum for a project, I'll eventually use colors or printed/embossed vellum, but I mostly need the clear/white kind

Crafted stuff:

- HUGE AND UNREASONABLE WISH! This hat for my husband: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=197767.msg2095325#msg2095325
a girl can dream, right?
- I know it's crazy, but I love this bag if you're feeling way ambitious http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=5975682
- a fun skirt or dress for the fall... see my wists/blog or PM me
- Square bottom grocery totes, nice and sturdy, and maybe washable?
- storage for my growing ATC addiction. Could be a box, a binder like these: http://www.jencaputo.com/Shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=191
 or a book like the ones in this amazing gallery! I have lots of cards...https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=139253.10
- a jumper! I love some of the jumpers I've seen around craftster... these are all fab! http://www.flickr.com/photos/jessicarolland/411721501/ and
PM me for sizing please!
- A shawl... I looove the one made by pawnshopromises on my wist
- luggage tags, in shades of yellow and purple, but each tag need not be both colors! I love fabrics with a vintagey feel, anything Freshcut, Amy Butler or Anna Maria Horner - ish, small florals might be nice, or seersucker? I can't have enough of them!
there is a pattern here: http://www.studiokatdesigns.com/freepatterns.htm
- Are you an artist? I'd love someone to do an art piece based on a photo like this one, but of me and my husband of course (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=181992.msg1892879#msg1892879
- a felted sash or belt. The one lexis made is gorgeous! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=148108.10
- a bound artist journal, with med/heavy weight paper and a lot of pages (this shop has a perfect example! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6279311)
- a hostess apron, with a pocket or two, and pretty details! Washable please, and any fabric like those listed above, those are my favorite styles, but it need not be a designer fabric!


- Boston Red Sox or NE Patriots Gear! I'm a HUGE fan and can't get enough stuff to wear to games... PM me for fave players or other ideas, just nothing pink please!
- I need a wide yellow belt for a certain dress and can't find one anywhere! If you happen to see one at a thrift shop or such, I'd love you!
- A deckle, used, handmade, whatever, I'm in need of a new one!
- An old blender, again if you find one at a yard sale or thrift shop, I will swap back with you to cover shipping! It can be fugly as long as it functions!
- A copy of The Happy Hooker. I'm going to teach myself, and I have heard this is a must have. Used is good!
- A soap making kit (but not melt and pour as it bothers my sensitive skin sometimes)
- Some pretty, but very easy to follow sewing patterns, uncut. I'm getting an old machine fixed, and will be relearning what my mom and my home-ec teachers taught me years ago! Maybe some little kid clothes, or simple clothes for me (I'm a US size 6).

Thanks for reading my list  Grin
