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.
- you MUST use DC#s or get a copy of the customs number when sending your packages!
- regular communication is required, so PM me when you send and when you receive with the title of the swap in the subject line
- 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 will let you know when you need to pick someone else if you want to receive more items.

Hi all! I didn't get picked last round or the round before, 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!

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/winter... 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
- 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)


- 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!
- I love tights and knee socks (jewel tones or neutrals are great, textured, ribbed, argyle, striped whatever as long as they are not flourescent!)
- 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!
- 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!   

Girl! Stop asking "What's for dinner?" IGOTCHU! Hit me up! ~
Velvet Rose

I didn't get picked last month or the month before  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 wish for.....


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
- Romanza

- Fiskar's shape templates - circles or rectangles

- scrapbook glue, scrapbook tape, scrap dots etc

- a 12" paper cutter

- I want to make my little boy a quilt. His bedroom will be blue, yellow and white -  so I would love pieces of cotton fabric with star patterns on them in those colours (no other colours please)

- A rotary cutter
- vintage buttons in flower shapes
- Japanese felting books/magazines
- 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

ok sorry for such a long post..
Hi I'm Kate, i started last round, it was my first swap. I'm 21 years old. i work at Jo Ann's (yeah its to support my habit) I have a 1 year old son named Damian.AND A BIG DOG he's over 80 pounds i adopted him through a shelter he's part Akita/ Shepard mix..  but he isn't around my crafting.....

 I'm eclectic.. i love the alternative clothes, but i also like it to have a classy edge.. i dunno how to explain it, i really bite at this.. but i have blond hair, with black underneath.. i love corsets but wouldn't be caught dead in fishnets. i love babydoll type shirts/dresses.  I have a shoe/purse problem .. I love Indigo...  my fav color.. that blue/purple.   i love red/black/ green/ silver/ i like copper rather then gold color (you know that not so yellow gold color).. i wear browns and creams.. it really depends on my mood.  I'm at the end of a divorce, and i had to move under crappy circumstances, so i really only have what would fit in a few suitcases.. I'm getting myself a sewing machine for x mass, but for now i have my mothers. I'm slowly adding to my collection, but i have hardly any supplies  (just a great excuse for shopping though huh.. lol try telling my bf that)

oh yeah I'm in TN, USA

my wish list:

1) buttons!!! I'm craving buttons!

2)anything really for embellishing, I'm seriously lacking ribbons, and snaps and zippers.. all that..

3) fabrics !!!

I have no idea how much they are, or if someone has one used.. but i need grommets and a machine to place them..

and those studs and that puncher thing..   sorry I'm not fluent in what all these things are called.

4)I love shirts ( something that hides that extra oh so sexy baby stretch pooch), skirts the sexier the better, pants )very low on the hips (i have a big butt), jackets i really need something to keep warm.. sweater recons awesome.., all i have is a few cold weather gear and lots of summer clothes.. again hence a few suitcases..
..   I'm kinda all over with size, so please email me..
I DO NOT LIKE THE PUFF SLEVES!!!  sorry i think they are uber cute on other people, but they look oh so bad on me.. but a nice baggy sleeve is just GREAT by me..

5) BAGS !!!  I'm big on allot of pockets (still have to carry diapers and wipes.. but i dint need a diaper bag)

I am pagan so something along that line is cool by me..

i have all 4 seasons here so right now its cold and getting colder..

6)I would love any old trains/cars for my son.. he loves them

7)Sexy things to wear around my new bf  (a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do) lmao

8)I'm not big on hats, but i would love head bands

9) i love my little patch of time travel .. when i lock myself in my bathroom and take full advantage of a bubble bath.. i stay in there till the water runs cold, and fill it up some more.. lol.. so anything soapy and smelly , ill give it a try Smiley

I'm a sci fi nut.. so used books and i love erotica !!!.. i love werewolves so wolf things are freaking awesome
i love vampires
uh i dunno witches is kinda redundant to me.. but i like them anyway .. but not the real ugly ones.. sexy ones are all the better..

I love anything that brings out the femme.. (i have a huge sexy fairy on my neck/shoulders) so I'm not afraid of crossing the line of comming across gay..   

 OK hope that helps, any questions please email me.. and if you just wanna chat thats cool too, I'm here to meet new people with love of the crafting  Smiley

I'm working on a small collection.. eventually there will be an option to buy on my personal site

Now I get to post!

This is my first time attempting this sort of swap.  We'll see how all this goes.  I'm Stephanie.  I'm 19 years old, currently in school at the University of Texas, and working in a bar.  I'm an English major, with a possible minor in apparel and textile design, if I can get over the fact that I have to take calculus for that.

I like to do lots and lots of crafts.  I'm a sewer, crocheter, jewelry maker, and polymer clay....-er.  I love exploration, of the great outdoors, or the great abandoned buildings I find in said outdoors.  I'm getting into photography, but my camera is terrible, so my pictures aren't very good.  I'm the tomboy who will go home and crochet after a long day of hiking.  I'm also recently engaged (yes, yes, 19 and engaged.  hush.) to my fellow explorer and best friend.

My favorite colors are brown, green, and purple.  I have no problem with any colors except yellow and pink.  Especially pink.

Onward to the list!


fabrics - the more eclectic the better.  Pieces as small as fat quarters are perfectly fine, as I'm beginning to get into both quilting and doll making.  Large pieces are also fantastic, as I am going to be making my own wedding dress, and need test fabrics.  Hell, I just love fabric.
yarn - I have a constant craving for homemade yarn, be it spun, dyed, or whatever.  I'm sick of all the store's things.
beads and buttons - vintage, kitschy, or anything in between, if it's small and can fit thread through it, I'm going to love it.
plain t-shirts - any size will do, but preferably adult medium or large.  I'm also trying to get into screen printing.
Old clock pieces, nuts, bolts, etc - I make steampunk stuff.
more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steampunk
Knitting starter kit with LEFT HANDED photo/video instructions.  You would not believe how hard it is to find lefty instructions at all, let alone with pictures.  I'm a very visual learner.

Completed Items:

Steampunk anything.  It's my newest obsession.  Tophats, necklaces, everything.
Knit, wool socks for the fiance - shoe size 12.5.  I can't seem to get them to work right with crochet....
I love things which can take a beating.  As I said before, I like to explore, and my gear needs to survive the barbed wire fences and prickly trees I deal with on a regular basis.  That being said, durable bags, shirts, jackets, and hats are wonderful.  Feel free to PM me for further details.
Something of a similar theme to this necklace: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7655962  I rather enjoy vodka, and time....
scrabble piece or other word themed things. http://www.wists.com/fluffybaka/41094366f341826d7843f8d158f7f15c?offset=100
Warm clothing.  Jackets, gloves, scarves, socks, whatever.  I live in Texas, and having never seen real snow, plan to go to New Mexico right after Christmas this year with my fiance and a few friends.  The boy and I lack proper winter gear, though.  Even if it's not crafted, but just a hand-me-down, it would be greatly appreciated.  Feel free to PM me for sizes.


I am NOT a typical texan.  I don't like horses or cows, and you won't ever catch me in cowboy boots, a cowboy hat, or watching football.  I'm a sensible human being who just happens to be caught in Texas.
I'm a big geek.  I still have my old Nintendo that was made before I was even born!  My favorite games are Duck Hunt, anything with Mario or Yoshi, Final Fantasy 7 and 8, Breath of Fire 3, Super Smash Brothers, Animal Crossing, wow, I could go on and on for a while....
I'm a hippie.  I've got long, blonde hair and my good friend has a late 60s VW van that I ride around in all the time.  One of these days, I'm going to clone that car....
I'm also a filthy communist.  I have the soviet flag hanging in my living room.  Grin
I love dinosaurs, dragons, robots, ninjas AND pirates, and bears.
Oh, and I spend a lot of time on the back of a motorcycle.

For more ideas, check my wists, my favorite items and stores on etsy, the things I've posted here, or just PM me with questions.

Eco-friendly items, patterns, hippies, and more.

I'm on Ravelry, too!

Hey guys! ^^
I'm Liz, but most commonly known online as Astica. I'm also a very determined 16-year-old. Additionally, I'm in Canada.

Also my first time attempting a swap like this, hope it goes well! <3

I love jewellery that's crafted with odd materials.
(but as a side note: I don't have pierced ears!)
For example:
clock parts: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=208268.msg2228726;topicseen#msg2228726
and locks: http://shanalogic.com/item.php?item_id=498&page=2&category_id=94

I would be blown away if any of you could make me any jewellery with glass.
Some that I love:

Long Fingerless Gloves would be amazing! I'd prefer it not to be all wool though, as it makes me itchy ^^; but I'd be so happy if they were knitted or croched Cheesy

Legwarmers! I saw someone wear these really awesome ones and she said she got them at lululemon, but I haven't been able to find them in their catalgoue Oo
This is the closest picture I could find:
Basically just legwarmers with a ribbon.

A Whimsical (best word I can think of to describe it ^^; painting. Prefrable able to hang on the wall. An example of one I really love:

A watch with inter-changable bands (beaded or ribbon or whatever you can think of ^^ )

I also really love hoodies.
Some that I especially love:
And I *much* prefer ones that are done up with buttons/zippers rather than ones you pull over your head.

A top like this:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7901153 (but maybe not the same colour...)

A dress like this:
I love it so much and would like to create my own, but I honestly don't know where to start =O

A quilt (for snuggling, not for the wall)

A corset is something that I've wanted for the longest time, but have no clue how to go about making one. I'd be *extremely* happy if someone would make one for me!


None-Crafted Items:

Any copies of W.I.T.C.H. magazine (the graphic novel one, not the tween one)
Looks like this:
One of the sites:

Preferably English, but French would be okay too. But please no German or anything else ^^; I know that the Philipines and UK have it in English, and that Quebec has it in French. Not sure about other places... I'm completely fine with backissues if you can find them in a second hand store or something! Cheesy


Things that I love in general:
*The chinese character for 'love'
*rainbow colours
*these colours/colour combos:

Oh, and I'm a small. But if more measurements are needed, feel free to ask ^^
*I'm allergic to smoke and have someone in my house allergic to cats*

Thank-you so much in advance to anyone that picks me! ^^ I love getting to know other craftsters <3

Sock Knitting

I'm sure my dog would enjoy any surprises as well! She really needs a new bed and a collar!

Anything inspired by my wists or a surprise!!!

Random Themes/Stuff I like

I love the color black! I especially love when it is paired with pink, red or electric blue! I love mod/kitschy stuff. I am a video game fanatic... the original Mario is my favorite. I am a big dork most of the time but tend to be on the shy/quiet side. I know that I will love anything sent to me! Thank you for anything you pick me for!!!!

Yeah. I'm in! Sorry it's at the end of November. but I just moved & didn't have time to swap. We are almost all settled in so here I am! Plus, I'm glad I didn't miss November as it's my birthday on the 30th! Smiley

Sorry, I forgot to mention, I'm in Switzerland! Cheesy
(that's important to know!)

My Wish List:
Thank you so much in advance:

Things you can craft for me:
- Mixed Paper Journal: I love these they are so cute.
- Oven mitt & hot pot holder
- Spice rack magnets. Like these:
- Something from my Wist or Flickr Favorites: Let me know what you had in mind as somethings are used as book marks. But I do like everything on there. So you might get an idea of something you can craft for me.
- Mini things: Like this sweater
 Or this knitting:
I frame these & need more mini things for my decorating! Smiley They don't have to be the same or knit... Only mini! Cheesy
- Polymer clay wrapped box or sewing kit/needle case:
- A mini quilt! I would love that, too.

General Supplies Always welcome:
- Fabric (always welcome!): Cotton, Japanese fabrics; Scraps of 5 inches or more gladly excepted!
- Rulers & Squares for Quilts, I need inch rulers: 12 inch square would be fab!
- Copyright free books/magazines: Ornaments, swirls, not real things like people, Copies should be OK, since they are copyright free.
- Scraps of leather for straps and trim for bag handles (not super thin like for necklaces)
- I need one sheet of that paper used to put pictures on coffee mugs. DH wants a mug with our dog on it to take to work, I have the mug & the photo waiting for the paper! Smiley
- Stamp or lino carving blocks
- English magazines are always welcome but I know they can be heavy.
- Sea glass

- Some New Craft Kit. Teach me something new!
- Paper making
- Book binding/Journal Making

When one of us wins the lottery!
- Speedball Screen-Printing Kit
- Japanese crafting books/magazines, Japanese quilting books/magazines

I dont wear earrings. My piercings closed up and Im too scared to have them done again. It was enough of a trauma the first time.
