Hi I'm Yarnisfun and I claim Lilyola for Reeses, Tootsie pops, and tacky Christmas ornaments Grin.

I'd love to receive from anywhere.

I love yarn, craft magazines, tea, postage stamps, fabric, candy, any craft supplies. I love all things Asian, and architecture.

I knit, crochet, sew, make stuffed toys, and spin my own yarn.

I can't have any scented items (perfume,lotion, candles) due to allergies.

Just about anything would be great.

Hi, I'm LizzieMcGuire and I claim Yarnisfun for craft magazines, candy and craft supplies/wool. This is my first claim.

I'm from Germany and I'd love to receive from anywhere.

I love yarn, wool, fabric, knitting magazines with patterns for young people (meaning younger than 50  Wink) and candy.

I really need some kool aid, because I dye and spin my own yarn and kool aid is hard to get in Germany (especially changing cherry and ice blue raspberry lemonade).

I'd also be happy to receive any craft supplies!

I'm Liz, in the US and I claim LizzieMcGuire for kool-aid, candy and knitting magazines.

I don't really have any specific countries in mind, I'd be happy to receive from anywhere!   Cheesy

My Wishlist:
*Postcards- Especially featuring architecture. I find American stuff so bleh. I would love anything with European castles and churches, or Asian shrines, temples or gardens. Or even anything depicting the local lifestyle, like fishing or farming or anything.
*Old maps- I like to see how different civilizations evolved.
*Dolls in your country's traditional clothing.
*Vintage buttons or beads
*Yarn (I'm only really familiar with acrylic, but I'm eager to try something else like bamboo, silk, or alpaca...)
*Fabric with prints usually attributed to your culture
*Coffee or tea native to your area.

Asian specifics:
origami or washi paper
bento boxes and accessories
batik fabric

I've seen somewhere online that a Japanese company makes double ended crochet hooks, those would be way awesome too.  Cheesy
