This is a wishlist swap;  post a list and you may receive it!   Your list will need to consist of where you are from (it's okay to just put your state and/or country), crafted items that you would like (it helps greatly to include links to photographs, tutorials, etc.) and/or crafting supplies.

First: You will look through the lists of the people
who have already posted.  You will THEN pick someone from
there to craft for.

Second: As soon as you have messaged me, the organizer,
telling me who you would like to craft for and your answers to the
questionnaire, I will tell you that you can post a list.

- to be able to post a list you have to craft for at least ONE person
- there must be AT LEAST 5 items on your list
- you can be picked as many times as you have items on your list
- if you have been picked 3 times, you have to pick one other person to craft for, then you can picked more...
- this swap starts fresh each month, so if you weren't picked from a previous round, you can post your list up in this round (after you've PMed me and been given approval)
-please include where you are in your wishlist, so people know if they are sending out of country before they choose you.
- please use DC#s or get a copy of the customs number when sending your packages... this helps greatly if they're lost in the mail!
- regular communication is required, so PM me when you send and when you receive
- you can craft for more than one person if you want, just PM me who you'd like to craft for and I'll send you their address!

When one of your items is picked, you must cross it out on your list and thank the person sending the item to you.

Person B wants to have their list posted so they PM the organizer with their questionnaire answers, and what they want to craft from Person As list.  The organizer will then PM person B, give them person As address, then they can then post their list.

Person C wants to have a list up, so they choose from A OR B, PM the organizer their answers, the name of the person they want to craft for, and what theyre going to craft.   Then they wait until the organizer approves them and sends them the address of whom they have picked.  Then they can post their list.

Say person A has been chosen 3 times. For them to be picked more, they have to pick one more person to craft for. 
The organizer (me) will let you know when you need to pick someone else if you want to receive more items.

Relist from September, with a few changes. Smiley

Hmm, let's see now...Here's the delio on colors and interests, at least:

Obviously, my fav pasttime is now knitting. I also love Harry Potter, watching tv (Law & Orders, Monk, Psych, Project Runway, CSIs, etc.), wine, mojitos, good chocolate (think Godiva quality, since I can't get Norwegian Freia chocolates in US stores), and so forth. I love dresses and Lucky/Guess brand jewlery (to give an idea about style), but mostly only wear either necklaces or rings. I'm very eclectic in my tastes (i.e. anything from oriental to old victorian). Aaand I'm a single mom to a 5 yo boy (who also loves HP and legos), so I'm constantly trying to organize our place here (it gets messy fast!).

You can also take a look at my blog to get a better idea for my taste (WIPs I'm working on etc.).

I like most colors, and these are the ones I'm currently obsessing about in my knitting: burgundy/cranberry reds, dark purples (could be both red and blue purples, but I tend to lean towards the reds), teals, olives, darker blues, yellows, darker browns, (tweeds).

Yarns - I love softness (regardless of fiber, but I prefer natural fibers)! I've done most of my knitting in worsted/dk weight yarns, but some bulky as well. Undyed.

Dye - The brand they have on knitpicks, I forget the name at the moment (darker colors; reds, blues, greens, purples)

Beaded necklaces - you know, the 'fashion jewlery' kind? If anyone is a whiz at making these, I wish you'd make me one! Cheesy

Circular needle cases - I really like the look of the lanter moon bags/cases, but I also like the look of the two stix and lexie barnes bags/cases. I really need the needle cases the most and pretty much all my needles are circs. Home made would be absolutely awesome. Wink

Debbie Bliss pattern books - Alpaca Silk & Alpaca Silk Too

Rowan pattern books - I'm especially interested in Calmer, Summer Tweed, Vintage Style, and The Kasbah Collection

Labels - I know I've seen labels somewhere; the kind you put on handknits with care instructions etc.

That's about what I can think of at the moment - thanks for picking me!

I'm made out of Laffy Taffy.

Hi all! I didn't get picked last round so here's my free list!

About Me: 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, thrifting, vintage, 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.


- any 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!
- wool roving in fun color blends for wet felting other stuff
- a needle felting kit for the same reasons as above!
- 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! Actually, if you want to make me a belt of any cool solid color fabrics, that would be neat too!
- 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 or SnB. I'm going to teach myself, and I have heard these are a must have. Used is good!
- A soap making kit (but not melt and pour as it bothers my sensitive skin sometimes)
- I'd love anything inspired by anything I've wisted! Or feel free to check my blog for ideas!

Thanks in advance for picking my wish!

Hi, I'm Jana. I'm in Los Angeles. I wasn't picked last round.

Okay, Wish list.

-Anything from my ever growing wists list.

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

-Crafted item on one of the follwing themes ( ideas: mixed paper journal, small painting, pillow, bag, or anything else you'd like to try ). I prefer realistic looking things to more kiddie-ish. Anything with corduroy is always good. Green and brown are always good too. As are other things.:
Nesting dolls ( more traditional than childish preferred )
A free Palestine
The Forest
Hansel and Gretal
Heronymus Bosch ( I can't spell for beans )

-Something crafted of one of the following themes for my sister or boyfriend
-writing ( my sister, a handmade notebook would be amazing as she'd definitely fill it up but anything would be wonderful )
-chemistry ( for my boyfriend, he's a chemist )
-Lone Wolf adventure books ( again, for the boyfriend )
-guitar ( boyfriend )


-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 didn't get picked last month Cry so I'm hoping someone will make one of my wishes come true.

I live in Australia and love doing swaps. I enjoy 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.

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 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

I guess I'm the first new person this month.

I'm a 22 year old recent college graduate.  I graduated with a history degree with a focus in Medieval and Early Modern Europe and still haven't managed to find a job.  Our school is kind of known for attracting the geeks and I am no exception.  Harry Potter, Buffy, Firefly, Doctor Who, Dungeons and Dragons and Werewolf the Apocolypse are all high on my geek-o-meter as well as a slew of anime, particularly Naruto and Samurai Champloo.  I am particularly fond of fall colors, both in the earthy shades like burnt umber, burgundy, forest green and those sort of antiquey colors as well as the sort of Halloween palate of purple, black, orange and green.  Um, I kind of suck at introductions, honestly.  I spend a lot of time gaming and on the internet so I always seem to run out of things to say about myself ^_^;;;.  Uh... what else?  I collect Asian Ball Jointed dolls that I use to embody my role play characters.  Oh, I live in Wisconsin, yay for cold weather (in that not yay at all sort of way).

Hand spun yarn
crochet stitch markers

Big Wish - Tom Baker's Doctor Who scarf in any of it's various incarnations (though I'm particular to Season 15, they are all awesome) http://www.doctorwhoscarf.com/photos2.php

Rose Tyler's Armwarmers https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=153185.0
Harry Potter House Unity scarf and matching wristwarmers http://www.wbshop.com/cat/Harry-Potter/Clothing-and-Accessories/Scarves-and-Ties/Harry-Potter-Black-Rainbow-Hogwarts-Scarf-by-Elope.html http://iangelofmusici.livejournal.com/333222.html#cutid1

Those are very nice. I was going to tell you that we put them in galleries, but I totally didn't make a gallery!  Tongue They are great. Now you can join up to 5 swaps. I am sure there will be another pagan swap soon!
