Hey! I'm Sarah, and I'll be 13 on September 12th! I live in Newfoundland, Canada. I am insanely obsessed with Harry Potter, and I love horses. I love cute things, like owls and amigurimi! My fave Harry Potter character is Luna Lovegood and Tonks, and my fave house is Ravenclaw. My favourite colors are: orange, yellow, lime green, hot pink, and black. I don't like: poo brown, puke green, anything gross, or bad words.


My Wishlist

- Anything to do with Harry Potter (I already have radish earrings)

- Amigurimi! Especially owls, but anything cute is welcome!

- Roving, for making felted beads!

- *BIG WISH* Messenger bag! Preferably in black.

- A rapunzel scarf!

- Felted soap

- A hat like this: http://www.woolgathering.net/archives/040608-ron.jpg

- Raver pants!

- Legwarmers like these: http://bunnywarez.com/catalog/images/lw_pinkTips.jpg

- A purple sweater like this: http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d50/the_knittymistress/luna6.jpg

- A panta, preferably lime green!

- Something to do with rats... I want one for my birthday, but I don't think that will happen, so anything to do with them (i.e. shirts, plushies) would be awesome!

- A knitted tube top!

- Something from my wists! http://www.wists.com/moofiebunny

- Hair falls!

- Shrinky Dinks!

- A beanie like this! I'd be SOOOO happy if I got one! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=194871.0

- A slouchy hat!

I'll add more later!

Hi September babes!  I am becci and I will be 26 on the 13th.  I live in Michigan.  This year my mother planned a family vacation around my birthday.  Apparently, my birthday is interfering with her vacation. 

My favorite color is blue (and silver) and I love stars.  i just got my first tattoo, a blue star.  I crochet, just learned embrodiery and to emboss paper.  I have a 2 and a half year old monster little girl. She is a little rockstar, just like me.  My favorite band is Army of Freshmen, I work at a candy store (no sweets please, I have my own and the tummy to prove it).  I am aso a freelance photographer, i like to make up my own words.  I can't ever get rid of a book or magazine even if I have read it 1000 times.  Ummm, I think that is about it.

My birthday wishes.

A 12 x18 purse/bag with a matching clutch i can use as a wallet sometimes and a clutch others.  (when I deliver at work I don't like to bring my whole bag, but I need my ID while pimping in the gold van).  How about a fun/funky design, like skulls or ice cream cones or skulls with ice cream cones.

Anything Army of Freshmen related. 

A felt soap kit.

Homemade real soap, not the M&P kind.

Metal crochet hooks, in any sizes.

Pillow cases any solid color.

Cascade 220 for a felt-tastic project I have in mind.

Anything from or inspired by my wists.

Or a surprise!

Thanks so much!

Hi, I'm Malina, here in muggy Lenoir City, TN, and I turned 33 on 9/3!!!  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...

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
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:

Dreadfalls, and directions on how to put them in

Shot in the dark:  a chef coat with a skull and cross bones on the back, but instead of bones, a fork and knife  WOOO!  Thanks Zaftigmama!  I didn't think this one would be granted lol

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!

I know I'm super tardy to the party, so THANK YOU so much to anyone who picks me to craft for.

I'm Erin, I turned 22 on September 5th, and started my new job as a barista at Border's just a few days before that, which totally rocks hardcore. I'm a knitter at heart but I do a lot of other crafts as well. I love books and music (hello, Border's) and would love to read/hear your faves as well.

Things I would like:

- yarn - please no purple or 100% acrylic. hand-dyed would be amazing but totally up to you of course. i could use some sock-weight but i have projects in mind for any weight. Thank you kayrun!

- a copy of your favorite book and/or CD - I'm always up for expanding my collection, I love just about any kind of book except romance novels and as for music, I love musicals, and bands ranging from Tegan and Sara to Outkast, so I'll give anything a listen. Thank you PimpernelSmith!

- a coffee or tea related surprise, I drink both these beverages heavily and would like to advertise.

- knitted or crocheted washcloths - i have tried a million times to knit these for different purposes (face, dishes, general dusting) but i run out of patience about halfway through. i don't know what it is...so these would be highly appreciated and greatly admired. Thank you again kayrun!

- reusable shopping bag - something colorful would be nice, the bags i have now are just beige organic tote bags..not very interesting.

- a virgo themed surprise - i'm VERY virgo.

P.S. my favorite colors are green, bright pink, chocolate, turquoise, and grey and i looooove stars, i have 8 star tattoos. and i'm pierced and tattooed and love things that have that imagery on it.
I'm really tired right now but will probably update this with other things later. Smiley

thanks again if you pick me!!!

oh darn.

I was looking forward to this one all summer.  And then, of course, work got super busy and life got super busy, and I completely never signed up.

And I just today realized it.

Just a quick note from your friendly Co-organiser to say we have 2 days left for our birthday swap so if you're thinking of crafting for someone then come on in and claim!  Grin

Also here's a gentle reminder for those amongst us with outstanding promises to fulfil. Lets get those packages out of the door as soon as possible so as not to keep our birthday girls waiting!

and last up, don't forget those gallery pics and Thank You cards.

There, I've flexed my bossy muscles and will leave the rest to ViolinRomance our esteemed organiser  Grin
