I claim bkrenning4 for rubber stamps, and something extra!
2nd claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

I'm Erica, I live in NE Florida, singe mom to a 9 year old karate master  Wink, allergic to cats, non smoker. We have two poodles, Gordy and LD (Little Delicious) lol. I am not a vegan, love to craft for people, although stress over perfection Wink. I work for a daycare school readiness organization, and have much stress in my life, so crafting gives me an outlet. I sew (beginner-ish), crochet, scrapbook, papercraft, bead, among others. Pink is my favorite color, but also like jewel tone purple, blue and greens as well.


*Fabric shopping bags
*Bento accessories (utensil holder, napkins, bag for bento stuff, bento straps) I like sakura themed (cherry blossom, pink, or flowery)
*handmade purse or bag
*Courage the Cowardly Dog softies (Courage, Muriel, Eustis, Katz, La Quack, the crazy inventor guy, any character from the show) If you need inspiration, I can find pics. (sewn only please)
*anne boleyn inspired items
*anything peacock, frogs or pigs
*a bedside caddy to hold things like my remote, glasses, and other misc.
*a nice,girly apron. Id like a full apron, since Im short and washing breakfast dishes in my work clothes ends up being a wet mess. PM for size
Big Wish!*a reusable, fabric chore chart for my son. Something like this, only smaller: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=225603.0 something karate or tae kwon do themed would be excellent!
big wish*a fabric lunch sack to hold my lunch container, water/drink bottle, and other stuff. My plastic grocery bag habit is heartbreaking! J
*water bottle carriers for myself and my son for our outings to the zoo
*a pretty capelet to wear (black of white is best) PM for size
*handmade occasion cards (birthday, get well, thanks, ect.)
*handmade swap notes and notecards (blank)
*decorated tin to keep all my new (I hope!) notecards and occasion cards in
big wish*a fancy wrap to wear to a company party (FL winters are mild so something light but fancy would be awesome!)
*a nice piece/pieces of artwork for my room (purples, blues, tans)(my walls are prince purple, as in the artist formerly known as prince)
*a crayon roll. I work for a daycare assistance organization, and kids are always wanting to color. Itd be nice to have a nice holder for the kids to use instead of my highlighters. Wink
*Christmas fabric blocks- 6.5 (I want to make a Christmas quilt, but cant bring myself to splurge on the fabric for a quilt that would only be used once a year.)
*a swap journal to keep track of swaps


*Cross Stitch Patterns: (I prefer used, instead of purchased. I like regifted! J PM me for Designer or pattern suggestions.) Dragons, mermaids, Asian inspired, Angels

This is my second claim...1 sent/0 received.

Hi everyone!!  I'm Roxanne!  I have a hubby who helps me craft when he can, a 3.75 yr old Lana, my mom, and a bird and a fish.  I'm originally from Hawaii, so even though I live in Maryland now I'm a local girl at heart! I've dabbled in lots of different crafts.  My true love is pottery, but I haven't done that in quite a while now.  Lately I've been beading though I'm cutting back and making felties--esp food.  I love making felt food!!  I love all colors, but not pastels.  Mod/retro prints, no country please.  I like hedgehogs, birdies, cats, bats, bugs, and my daughter is mad about rainbows so if you have any other ideas please pass them by me.  Smiley

I have one super big need that I am hoping that someone in the UK can help me with.  I would love to have the mugi puzzle cookie cutter. 

I made my super big wishes red.  Smiley

I claim bettflow for crocheted dishcloths or potholders, ergonomic crochet hooks, and some cotton scraps for quilting.

This is my second claim, 0 sent, 0 received.Hi, Im Mary Ann and I live in the rainy Pacific Northwest, USA. I have 2 super adorable/monstrous toddler nephews (with a 3rd one on the way!) My main crafts are soap making and other bath and body (lip balm, lotions, scrubs, bath truffles, masks, etc), crochet, and sewing, but I dabble in jewelry, scrapbooking/card making, cross stitch, embroidery, and anything else that catches my fancy. I like most colors but in certain combinations only, there is a long list in my profile.  I dont like black and pink together. No allergies, except wispy yarn like mohair makes me sneezy and itchy. I can't wear necklaces at all and have to be careful with other jewelry (needs to be loose and high quality/breathable material) because I have contact dermititis. I love hamsters and books and don't care for knick-knacks or amigurami or things that just take up space (I am trying to cut the clutter!)


**A cozy/holder for my sewing scissors. Ive been sewing since jr high and finally just bought a nice pair of fabric scissorsamazing!

** A needle book, with nice needles. I can never find needles, and when I do they are crappy ones that the tips break off of.

** A t-shirt stenciled or decorated with  "I <3 geeks"  either just wording or with an image from a comic book (marvel), transformers (steeljaw would rock) or World of Warcraft. Women's perfect fit xxl from Old Navy fits me, um perfectly. AND/OR a t-shirt that says "I <3 soapmakers" for my guy, men's xl.

*Headbands~I think I might finally have enough sewn/reversible ones, but crocheted ones like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=227536.msg2526728;topicseen#msg2526728 or maybe silky material almost scarf-like headbands. My hair is dark and I prefer bright or light colors (purples and greens especially!)*Knit cable purse, any neutral or bright color http://www.wists.com/maremare312/36af2a50f0477f0a3163e64599b33bb1?offset=0

*Purse/bag any size with long-ish strap(s) (just to fit over my shoulder and tuck under my arm), in stripes, polka dots, wacky floral, or asian inspired material with magnetic button or would really love zipped closure. I tend to like bright (but not garish) patterns for material, and Amy Butler, Alexander Henry type stuff.

*Clutch purse, I love clutches and can never have enough! Any style, made any way, any color or design, please feed the addiction! I have several marked on my profile of some other people have made that I think are great, but I've never met a clutch I didn't like!

*Woven magazine purse, like on my wist ***If it was adapted to somehow be a small cluth that woule just about the the coolest thing everand less time spent weaving!http://www.wists.com/maremare312/d96603f51b726346adb7239e52cd5982?offset=20

*Fun blocks or trucks for my toddler nephews (I wish I had wood working skills...and power tools!)

* Anything for toddlers that is Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles.

*Something Zelda or Mario or Tetris themed, especially wall art or something for the fridge (magnets would be awesome!) Or something with old school NES controllers, there are tons of awesome things on craftster and I'm so jealous!

*Large scale-floral art work (painted stencils on canvas would rock) Small pieces of art would be appreciated too (5in x 7in), I just like the large scale flowers, if that makes sense (not a tiny pattern?) Here is an example of a few I like from target, but would prefer brighter colors (purple, or red, or teal on a light gray or pale color complimentary background would be great: http://www.target.com/Small-Beige-Leaves-Wall-Art/dp/B000TVJZH4/sr=1-3/qid=1200811332/ref=sr_1_3/601-6249443-0484968?ie=UTF8&index=target&field-browse=1038616&rh=k%3Aart&page=1 I

I like the colors in this one--brown and pale blue http://www.target.com/Carnations-Canvas-Framed-Art-Pistachio/dp/B000LY5RG2/sr=1-2/qid=1200811531/ref=sr_1_2/601-6249443-0484968?ie=UTF8&index=target&field-browse=1038616&rh=k%3Aart&page=1

 And I love 3 piece ones! Swirls and the colors are cool, or above colors http://www.target.com/Swirl-Wall-Art-Canvas-3-pc/dp/B000J41KTC/sr=1-7/qid=1200811593/ref=sr_1_7/601-6249443-0484968?ie=UTF8&index=target&field-browse=1038616&rh=k%3Aart&page=1

*Small ready-to-go scrapbook (s) in boy/toddler theme (I would just have to add pics) thanks rossana9041

**If anybody has a pattern or can design a pattern to make a play mat for my nephews, that would be awesome. I'm not great at designing/drawing, but I want a little town with roads with lots of parking spaces, they love to line up their cars. This has been something I have wanted to make for a while but I'm a little stalled in the idea dept!

** A heavy duty-ish case for my camera, please pm for dimensions, it is kinda big (compared to all these gum pack sized ones out now!) I would really like it to be strong, maybe with home dec fabric and padding/batting or lots of interfacing to protect it

**A checkbook cover, maybe with florals or something neutral to match lots of purses? I would love it if had one of those vinyl/plastic flaps at the bottom for my double page carbon checks so they don't bleed through onto the next one.

*A wallet that is fairly neutral colored (but not boring) with room for quite a few cards and cash. A pocked for change would be nice! Black and whites or browns/ tans or white/red in florals or stripes or a classic type pattern.

*Toddler clothes~we never seem to have enough extras when they spill (they arent over at our house that much). Stenciled t-shirts, or shorts.  Size 3-4T, 2T would be ok too (one is 2 1/2, one is 4 next week, they are average sized to big for their age I guess). Something that said I get my good looks from my Aunt  or something similar would rock! Also pirate themed (but not too scary if skeletons) Or trucks, veggie tales, dogs, transformers...

*Potty Training rewards container. A container decorated with Aidan to keep his treats when he uses the potty. He loves gum and pez, so it doesnt have to be super big, just something that is clearly his. And I think it would be funny if it looked like a toilet, but I dont know if thats appropriate or might derail the potty training lol. (When I do bad my constant excuse is, what do I know, I dont have kids, Im just the aunt! )

Craft Kits

*Needle Felting Kit with Directions/Needles

Craft Supplies
**Fuzzy-velvety-ish fabric in solid brown and solid olive green. Hard to explain but I need it to make teenaged mutant ninja turtle costumes for the boys?

**Belting? Is that what its called, sometimes you use it to make purse handles and its sold by the yard? Maybe 1 inches wide. A couple yards in brown or green

*Sock weight yarn, preferably in a solid color (red, black, cream or olive green would be my faves)

*Patterns/books~ Sewing books! Ive been sewing for a long time but dont really know what Im doing. I also have had a serger for 5 years and havent been able to figure out how to thread it.

** Large floral stencils (maybe 8-12 inches long+) so I could make above artwork (a la Target) on my own

*Other stencils that I could use: small scale ones for the boys clothes in boyish themes: trucks, ninja turtles, etc, larger scale ones for tees and bags for myself: Quotes or silhouhettes/outlines from scenes from Office Space, Alice in Wonderland, or Clueless, No Doubt/Gwen Stefani (band pics or song lyrics) um or something else that I like listed in my profile.

*I would love some Tonka truck material (or hot wheel race cars) to make something for my nephews. I would probably incorporate it into the play mat I have been planning on making them for ages. At least a yard please, more is better when you dont have an exact plan  ;-)

*Handspun yarn, thick and thin kind, any colors/material

*Soap Fragrances~long shot, but if someone happens to have any Polo blue for men dupe, white tea and amber dupe, or red clover tea, at least 2 ounces that they arent going to use

*Fun buttons, particularly wood/bamboo, natural looking or brightly colored, smaller with interesting shapes or bigger than a nickel if round or square

* Small zippers to make pouches (7 in or less?) any colors

*Notions/trims like bias tape (double fold, prefer extra wide), rick rack, piping.

*Surprises are cool, there is a lot of info in my profile and links and wist.


Lindt chocolate, yum!
Loose or bagged teas
Exotic or fun dried fruits (I saw some dried cran-cherrys the other day that sounded cool)
Pez candy refills and/or ninja turtle pez dispensers (gotta get 2 of stuff so there isn't fighting though please!

HUGE WISH!!!!!!!!!!! I REALLY would like a GOCCO japanese print maker... if you have one you don't use, I'd be willing to negotiate for it... crafts/money/cleaning your kitchen for the next 30 years perhaps?

Bag with a plan
« Reply #156 on: April 19, 2008 02:53:00 AM »

I claim elmpixie for Silver jewelry bits, like clasps and earring posts and hooks and coloured felt in earthy and pastel tones.
This is my 2nd claim this round (1 sent and received) and I'm in the UK.


Biggest Wish: A little embroidery of a black cat and a black dog for me to put in a postcard-size frame. This'd be for me to remember some much-loved but sadly departed pets. I love the simple style of this Etsy seller's embroidery: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8808073

5 or 6 fabric curlers - any design you come up with that'd make my hair less poker-straight would be great Smiley Maybe snap fasteners rather than buttons would be easier to sew?
-Keeperrox's tute: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=235779.0;topicseen
-Life with monkey's tute: http://lifewithmonkey.wordpress.com/2007/09/03/hair-curler-sewing-tutorial

A makeup-bag with a little pockets/compartments inside (don't need to be zipped pockets) for things like bobby pins, tweezers that always get lost at the bottom. A washable fabric would be great so I can toss it in the machine if my foundation leaks!

Vinyl (or other fabric) Nintendo pouch - this appeals to the early 90's kid in me Cheesy

Little (10mm or smaller) stud earrings - I'd love some made with pearl, glass or perhaps little vintage metal charms.

A sewn fabric bucket to store bits and bobs in my bathroom cabinet.

I'd love something unique to wear - maybe a reconstructed shirt inspired by the 'Button Down Tee'?

A couple of cloth pads with wings and a fastener. I've never used them so to ease myself in would love to try some really thin ones for days when I just want a 'backup' Smiley


Embroidery scissors

100% cotton pillow cases (bed size - about 18 x 30") for embroidering

Coin purse flex frames

A large-ish ink pad (used is fine!)

Clear-lidded containers of any shape/size


8" or shorter zippers

Fruity/green tea or candy (especially anything grape flavour) is always appreciated in our house Grin

About me... I'm a homely gal who loves animals, earthy colours and classic, understated designs. I'm a sucker for anything cotton or quilted. I take a US 8 in clothing.
Some of my fav fabricS, for inspiration:

    I claim ritapizza for recycled sari silk yarn and some charms.

    This is my 6th claim (5 sent, 4 received) and I am in the U.S. Here's a mini-bio with more info than you'll ever want.   Wink

    I'm 32 and live in the lovely state of Michigan with my wonderful husband and our beagle, Snort. Snort's idea of the good life is eating, sleeping and eating her own poo. She's my fur-baby, and while we don't treat her like a human child, she is a member of our family. I own an asphalt company with my Dad and work about 70-80 hours a week in the summer, so I basically have no life, including crafting, from May through the end of November. However, come December, I get to craft like a crazy woman! My husband works for a minor league baseball team, so luckily our schedules coordinate somewhat and while we rarely see each other in the summer for more than an hour or two at a time, we do get to hang out in the winter. We've been married for a little over a year and are still enjoying each other's company. I'm a flittering crafter, I like to try everything once and the things I really enjoy, I keep up with. My current favorites are knitting (my first adult sweater is on the needles and it's getting really hard to keep going!) and papercrafts, though I'm trying to get back into watercolors and really need to start using my pottery wheel again. Things I'd really like to try at some point are resin, crochet (mainly for amigurumi, but also for things like blankets, 'cause crochet sounds like it's quicker for that), and needle felting. I like sarcastic wit and jokes that make you think, and I seem to be experiencing a renewed love for the '80s. Favorite tv show of all time is The Office and favorite movies are Real Genius (with a very young Val Kilmer) and the original Willy Wonka (c'mon, a movie all about candy!) I love nature and waterfalls are my favorite places to check out. And my favorite food in the whole world is donuts. Best flavor explosion - a fresh, hot, plain cake donut, straight from the oven with a glass of apple cider. Go, Quality Dairy! (Will only make sense to anyone from the greater Lansing area in Michigan.) I dislike mean people, people who are stupid by choice, soy sauce, political campaigns, and having religion preached to me without an invitation.

    Please feel free to look over my wists as I like everything on there and wisty surprises are fun, fun, fun!!! Thank you so, so much to anyone who chooses me!


  • NEW knit squares I love thisthrow and decided to start requesting knit squares from Craftsters. Anything is fine, any colors, any patterns, any yarn, any gauge. Finished size should be roughly 4 square.
  • knit socks (womens size 9) 
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt beagle (Ill fight ya for this one, Grieney!)
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt hippopotamus
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt cookie monster (actually, any of the old-school sesame street characters would be great and Ive even got free patterns listed on my wist!)
  • amigurumi or needle-felted or felt pelican
  • pair of knit half-finger gloves with a fold-over mitten flap
  • Handspun yarn or art yarn. (please make sure theres enough yardage to do a small project, like a scarflette or something, so probably a minimum of 80 yards?) woo-hoo! Some is on its way from ThreadorYarn, but Ill leave this up in case other spinners wanna claim me.
  • Knit shrug - on the off-chance that someone is just itchin to do one, Ive got a few listed on my wist
  • NEW hand-dyed yarn (anything but neons is fine, ocean-y colors in blues and/or greens would be spectacular, and it can just be a solid color, it doesn't have to be verigated or self-striping or whatever that's called - those kool-aid dyed yarns look cool to me!)
  • NEW sewing machine cover I like the lines of this one, but would like a fabric to coordinate with my craft room (kind of an olive green color on the walls, I can link you to pics). Funky fabric and/or embellishments you think I would like are terrific, but a pretty cover would be great, too!
  • pretty checkbook covers - thanks, oneredboot!
  • NEW a box bag like  this
  • some type of overnight bag that has a few pockets (interior or exterior) to hold misc. toiletries and stuff (Ive seen some Amy Butler ones that are cute, but it doesnt necessarily have to be that involved or fancy unless you feel like it basic tote with interior pockets is fine by me. Oh, and it doesn't have to be fancy fabric, either.)
  • Placemats (set of 2, 4 or 6) - though Im loving the log cabin look, anything would be sweet. My kitchen colors are sage green and burgundy thanks, MommyTheMaid!
  • Pair of Strawberry Shortcake, Super Mario, Smurfs or PacMan long pajama pants (any fabric is fine, PM for measurements but I wear a Nick and Noras size large if that helps)
  • Pair of Strawberry Shortcake, Super Mario, Smurfs, or PacMan pajama shorts (any fabric is fine, PM for measurements but I wear a Nick and Noras size large if that helps)
  • NEW a rice pack (preferably with a removable cover, but I could sew that myself) that can go in the microwave or freezer

  • your original artwork, whatever medium you like (I prefer smaller pieces, nothing larger than 8x10 unless you PM me first to make sure I have a place to display it) you can check my wist for inspiration, but Ill love anything that isnt political, religious or deals with death
  • Pelican notecards. Stamped, collaged, drawn, whatever!
  • NEW inchies or ACEOs

  • silkscreened t-shirt with the phrase    neat-o mosquito     (feel free to add a cool image if you have one) womens large, 38-40 bust
  • t-shirt like this one that errka made for me last year that I have worn and washed so much the graphic is falling apart!  womens large, 38-40 bust   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155224.msg1545936#msg1545936
  • silkscreened or handpainted or stenciled t-shirt, basically animal/nature stuff  (Ive got a few on my wists for inspiration) womens large, 38-40 bust

  • NEW headbands. I need to start wearing my hear in something other than ponytail holders, so I figured Id try some headbands. I guess any style is fine? My hair is thinning and is somewhat fine, so if that means anything and Id prefer more muted colors/fabric, nothing too flamboyant or childish.
  • A glass or soldered or resin pendant Ive got examples on my wists of some I like, or choose an image you think Id like!
  • Pelican pendant sculpy, glass, collaged, resin, whatever!

  • stained glass suncatchers on their way from mimiw!
  • hand-carved rubber stamps of your design
  • rubber stamp with my return address (Ive got a sample on my wists) thanks, nofury!
  • custom tags for my knit items I gift to family and friends (PM me for info)
  • A gnome/hobbit mini-door. Ive got at least one on my wists for reference.
  • Anything on the theme of Happy Homemaker with a twist (tongue-in-cheek kind of things) notepad, pendant, artwork, tote, t-shirt, whatever! a surprise is on the way from MommytheMaid, but Im leaving this up there in case someone else has an idea!
  • Anything on my wists Im constantly adding new items and there's lots of small/medium items on there!

  • NEW Berrocco Comfort Yarn Worsted Weight any color except for neons is great
  • NEW Lisas Knits Readers Wrap pattern used is fine, but heres a link, too.
  • NEW Any decent art markers, used is perfectly fine
  • Banana silk yarn, any color (havent tried this before!)
  • Yak yarn, any color (havent tried this before and I know its expensive, so remnants/small amounts are fine!)
  • Michael Miller or Amy Butler (or similar style) cotton fabric, at least a yard, please! (Ive got some samples on my wists of what I like)
  • "cutesy Japanese cotton fabrics, at least   yard or fat quarter, please! (Ive got some samples on my wists of what I like, but I tend to prefer the neutral backgrounds with little animals)
  • Weird or unique rubber or acrylic stamps. Zetti-type images, dancing animals, retro images, basically stuff you cant find at JoAnns (Ive got a few samples on my wists). Used is perfectly fine!
  • How to Do Resin Kit (I know nothing and have nothing)

I claim asphaltqueen for:

Pelican notecards. Stamped, collaged, drawn, whatever! (and a surprise!)

This is my 4th claim.

I live in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.  I am a 40-ish (emphasis on "ish") year old, under-cover hippy freak mother of two boys ages 9 and 11.  I dabble in many different crafts, but don't do any of them consistently, but have been getting back into jewelry, which was my first love! 

I love long skirts, long coats, embellished jeans, hoodies, and boots (I love boots!  I own over 30 pairs!)   I love white, black and red.  Not into pastels or frills!  My tastes vary from day-to-day.  Drives the husband crazy when it is gift buying time.  One day I'm extremely funky, the next very elegant.  Never know... So, wish list changes, ALOT!  But my wist gives you a pretty good idea of my varied likes.
