I'm in Canada and this is my third claim, 1 sent, 1 going out today, 0 received.  List in a mo....

Crafted Goodness

* Needlebook.  I can't believe I don't have one. -- thanks !b

* Project journal - like a swap journal but for stuff I keep and/or give away to people in person and not just on the internets. 

Stuff To Craft With

* Embroidery floss, hooks, things to embroider on.  I have a billion patterns.  What to do with them, I do not yet know.
* Soy wax.
* Knitting needles, secondhand is fine, I have only a few. -- it's amazing what you can find when you move.

* Fabric markers - any colours.
* Wrecked or unwanted CDs or DVDs for the imaginary light sculpture in my head.

About Me

I don't have many posts, so this will be on the longish side for better swap stalking possibilities.

Hi, Im Allison, a 30-whatever year this is (7??) year old hermit from the wilds of Ontario.  Seriously, I have more deer and bears visit than people, and Im okay with that.  I have two large dogs and three cats that think they are dogs.  These days my primary craft is crochet, though in winter I get the kiln going (sometimes just for extra heat) and play with ceramics.  Ive been known to make a quilt.  I dabble in stained glass and mosaic.  Knit badly, sew badly, embroider in theory.  My woodworking shop is bigger than my house, but Ive gotten away from that lately.  Speaking of that house, Im building a new one and its driving me crazy.    I have trouble remember to take pictures of FOs, but  I finally have a digital camera, its around here somewhere.  I have the attention span of a gnat. 

I love nature and animals (except when theyre eating my garden or ripping open the garbage bin), music and books.  I love the idea of babies (which is why Im a fantastic baby shower guest) but would sooner chew off my own arm than have one.  I dont have a favourite colour, though I do believe that yellow is best used sparingly and bright turquoise is a tool of the devil.  I refuse to acknowledge the existence of neons.  I hate to wear socks but would like to learn to knit them.  Im allergic to most metal and dont wear jewelry.  I don't have a sweet tooth but I'm addicted to coffee and potato chips.  I never use a sentence when I can use an entire paragraph.  Also, Im only marginally computer literate but Im working on it. 

Thanks in advance to whoever claims me.  Give a holler if I stall things.

I claim sunspotted for unwanted CDs!!

This is my second claim this round, 1 sent, 1 received

I live in Seattle, WA USA, I'm 22, live with my boyfriend and our non-traditional family.  I'm vegan but not anal about it, and I'm in love with sealife. I have two cats, three bunnies, and I had to put down my rat on Thanksgiving Sad  I love ugly and obnoxious colors, along with deep shades of blue, red, green, and purple, but I hate white and most pastels, ESPECIALLY pastel yellow.  Hot pink and olive green are my two big colors, and I also like 70's colors and vintagey looking things.  Tea gives me migraines and I'm allergic to latex.

I have been crafting my whole life, sewing for 15 years now, and knitting seriously for about 4.  I've recently started making things without patterns, and have also started writing my own.  I'm
always interested in learning new crafts, and there's very few things I haven't tried at least once.

Winning themes for me are anything relating to realistic sealife (fish, jellies, anemonies, kelp, octopi, etc), bugs (like slugs/snails, bees, spiders and millipedes), birds (my favorites are
pigeons, ducks, geese, and parrots), cute cartoon dinosaurs, and Asian art (including but not limited to Tibet).  I don't, however, like kanji or any writing in a language I don't understand.



+ knitting bag
+ desk lamp for crafting and taking pictures in my dark house
+ toys for my kitten (he loves jingly things, doesn't seem to care for catnip)
+ a usable fish mug
+ sturdy, medium size handbag/purse that I can hang over my shoulder.   Thank you mimiw!
+ embellished t-shirt or long sleeved shirt (size small), stenciled, painted, patched, or whatever with any of my themes
+ something tall and cylindrical to hold all my paintbrushes (I have about 30 of them)
+ soy wax candles
+ something from/inspired by my wist
+ framed fishy art I can hang on my barren walls


+ blocking board type thing for knitting
+ non-vegan yarns from your stash (I won't buy wool new, but I love recycling and want to felt and dye SO BAD!  If you have any wool that you are never going to use, I can make a good home for it.)
+ super cool pencils (designing with pen is messy!)
+ Men's ties, none with cartoon characters please.
+ 24" circular needles, size 5 and/or 7
+ issues of Interweave knits pre-winter 2006


+ wire jewelry making (with instructions and tips please!  I've got pliers and things but I don't know how to use them!)
+ soap-making kit (vegan-friendly supplies only and instructions, please)
+ yarn dying (I'd like to try kool-aid)

YUM (please only send these things if you are 100% certain they are vegan! ask if you have any questions)

+ Chocolate almond clusters (I can't find them here anywhere GRRRR!)
+ Tropical source chocolate bars (mint and crispy rice; they disappeared!  I can't find them anymore!)
+ Awesome popcorn seasonings
+ cool popcorn kernels

I claim fishie for
+ embellished t-shirt or long sleeved shirt (size small), stenciled, painted, patched, or whatever with any of my themes

This is my 3rd claim (1 sent, 0 received).  I'm in Virginia, US.

1.  I would sell my soul for a Trasformers Toque https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=197767.0
I know it's a big wish, but I have to put it out there in case some knitter would have fun making it.  It would make absolutely the best Christmas gift, but I couldn't make it myself because I barely know how to do basic knit stitches.

2.  Necklace(s)--I love them, and it's safe for me to wear them at work now, so I'm excited to get some more.  I especially love pendants on chains right now.

3.  Pin(s)!  Love those, too.    Sweater season has started, and I love wearing pins with twinset cardigans.

4.  A funky throw pillow cover.  I'd love something with dark green, deep red, and/or deep goldish-brown.  I'd love something really attractive to replace the old patchwork pillow cover that's falling apart.

5.  A pair of mittens.  I like to wear mittens on top of my gloves on cold days.  PM for measurements.

6.  An attractive, lightweight tote bag with a zip closure at the top.  I'm on a mission to get my mom to carry something a little nicer than the screenprinted promotional freebie bags I've seen her carry the last couple times we've visited.  They look a little out of place when she goes out to eat, but I know she won't buy for herself, and anything I make probably wouldn't look any better.  It needs a strap that's long enough to carry over the shoulder with a heavy coat on, but not long like a messenger bag.  Something rather neutral-ish and not heavily embellished... on the casual side, but not sporty.  Something for a conservative dresser who's not quite retirement age yet, and who wears a lot of sweatshirts.  PM for more info if you want it, because I've probably rambled too long already to the general thread-reading masses.  Smiley

Okay, so I've been claimed for necklaces and pins, but I'm not taking them off--because I can't seem to have enough.  A few years back, all my "jewelry" (in quotation marks, because most of it was absolute junk) was burgled from my home, and I was without any for a while.  Now I'm on a mission to fill that awesomely large jewelry box I bought for $1 at a thrift store. 

Let's see.  I'm vegetarian, and I'm not fond of leather, gelatin, fur, or feathers.  Wool's just fine.  I love all colors, including colors and combinations most people consider odd or ugly.  Not a big fan of neons, and I think I've hit my limit on pink, but any color could find its place with me.  Unless it's for the Transformers Toque, which would be for a gift.  A neon pink Transformers Toque would probably be too far over the edge.  Thanks to whoever picks me!

I would love to claim hdcase for
- an exacto knife ( because every crafter MUST have one of these Smiley
- a thimble or two ( I collect them too )
- pin cushion from her wist (the ring or the cactus or both if I can pull them off)

This is my second of 3 claims. One is going tomorrow. I am a 36 year old stay at home mom who LOVES to make things. I love playing with paper and fabric and really appreciate anyone who takes time to craft for me. Here is my wish list in no particular order:

- standard size pillowcases or throw pillow covers (14" or 16" squares) - Black, white and red - I LOVE florals and polka dots - just the covers, I'll add the pillows myself
- pincushion / thread catcher
- sewn / embroidered cuff
- an organizer (made out of fabric) for my felt and floss when I travel. I sew alot in the car on road trips and could something to carry my supplies in.
- screen printed art with birds (I love sparrows and owls)
- a Diego backpack (Rescue Pack) for my son
- handmade pin cushions (I collect them)
- an full length apron in vintage inspired fabric
- knit fingerless gloves to wrist or to elbow in black or charcoal grey
- knit maryjanes for my daughter - she wears a size 10 in toddlers and loves pink
- anything with birds on it, particulary sparrows and owls like a thimble, figurine, stuffie, pincusions, etc
- Anything Nightmare Before Christmas for my 7 year old daughter who collects it
- handcarved stamp- I'd love a bird, house or my name- lorib
- big chunky rings - I wear a size 7- 7.5

- neat office supplies like labels and mini staples (BIG WISH)
- Embroidery patterns of birds, houses, alphabets
- Embroidery hoops - any size in wood or plastic
- chucky buttons that I could use to make into rings
- scraps of fabric to make covered buttons ( vintage scraps would rock)

I really LOVE using vintage things in my art like:
 - buttons with holes (not the ones with shanks)
 - fabric ( florals are my favorites, love 30's feedsacks prints)
 - sewing patterns - anything pre-1970

I am a fabric junkie and love:
- red, aqua, leaf green, black and white
- big and small florals
- cute japanese prints (loves owls and trees)
- polka dots ( I could clothe the world with my current collect and would love more)

I LOVE the work of Beryl Taylor and want to start art quilting. I could use supplies for that like:
- sheer fabrics with glitter or sparklies on it (to layer over other fabric)
- lace trim
- blank or preprinted printable fabric
- cream twill tape with words stamped or printed on it (I can give you suggestions)

I have a pretty hefty wist list and ofcourse would love anything inspired from it: http://www.wists.com/igobylorib

Don't hesitate to pm me with any questions you have. I just love this swap-
