Organizers: TwiztidBlood and pinupmommy

*IMPORTANT PM INFO*: When sending PMs, please label them as OWS 35 with one of the following tags:
Package sent
Package received

So when sending the questionnaire, the subject will read OWS 35 Approval. When notifying us about sending and receiving packages, add the corresponding tag. If you just have a general question, label it as that. This will keep things organized for us!
When sending a sent/received PM, please include the 'Send by' date so my craziness will stay at a minimum.

Please bookmark this thread and/or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.


How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!

Try to imagine a chain.  The first link is the first person whose wish list is on page 1 (Person A) - that will be the craftster member who was the very last wish list from Ongoing Wish Swap 34.

Now, we want to put another link in the chain.  People will read that list and see if there is something they want to/can make from the list.

Someone (Person B) will claim Person A for some item on their wish list.  They post a reply to the thread that says I claim Person A for [item].  This is my X claim (however many times they have picked someone for example, "this is my fourth wish, with one sent, and three received, (meaning that this is the fourth claim they've made, one is in transit to it's destination, and three of the items have been received by the people they previously claimed).  Also add your location, and any preferences or aversions I live in Wisconsin USA, I am a vegetarian, and I am allergic to wool.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!  This means you need to post who you are claiming and for what, how many claims you have made, including how many in transit and how many received, and your location/preferences/aversions.

Then comes the fun part!  After the introduction, Person B is the last link in the chain, and they post their wish list!!!  YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF SIX.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.

(Please have your list ready, this swap moves very quickly!  Please include your country at the start of your wish list). Person B will also PM Person A to get her address so they can mail the item when it is finished.   

Along comes Person C, who claims Person B for something on their list and the chain is built, link by link.  (If Person C wanted to make Person B a purse AND a stuffie, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  Then they post their list, and so on.

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.

After you have made your claim, you need to PM that person for their address.

Friends of Craftster are allowed 3 wishes at one time, others are allowed 2 wishes.  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish until your craft is received for this month.  Do not choose over your given limit.
 If you already have one claim that will be sent out late, please don't claim again until that one is sent out.

Become a Friend of Craftster!  Go here: https://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php

If you are at your limit of wishes, you can choose again once one of your partners receives, NOT when you send.
***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***

Let's keep the quality high here. I don't want to receive PMs with people concerned over the lack of quality of their items.  Please, just work your hardest to keep the bar high on the quality of items here!  Don't choose just for the sake of choosing; choose to make someone else a really AWESOME wish!

Now if the thread gets in a rut for a few days/hours, the person who made the last wish should add to their list if they can think of anything else, until someone decides to craft for them. Please make sure this is not you!

Unsure of where to find wish ideas?  Try the previous ongoing wish swap galleries or any other gallery on craftster.  Look through your fellow crafters wist lists.

( the medium can be a couple small items etc as long as it adds up to a medium )
( A medium item equals two hours of crafting time or 20$ worth of store bought items )

Please be communicative if you are having any issues. If you communicate you still need to send your item in a timely manner.  Communication does not mean you can send as late as you want.  After one week past the deadline you will have negative feedback.  This is only temporary as it will be changed back once you fulfill your obligation for late item(s).  Do not choose to craft an item if you do not think you can meet these deadlines.

I will be giving feedback in the following way:
-  great swapper: for those who follow all the rules
-  good/poor communication:  where applicable
-  sent late/early: where applicable
-  no dc number: failed to comply with the rule about using a delivery confirmation number for packages within your own country
- didn't post pictures: failed to post pictures of what they received without an adequate explanation to their partner
- did not follow item amount rule

Previous Swap Rounds:
If you are confused in any way by how this works, please look at some previous rounds:


TwiztidBlood - Will be your organizer, in charge of your claims, your sends and your receives, and your approval
Dinosaurus Meg - Will Be in charge of the ows 34 discussion thread. As well as any questions or concerns you have.

Alrighty, the first list up for claims!

i know for some of you this will read june 1st but it is 10:34 central time which means it is still may 31st for me lol

6th claim 3 rec'd

now about me:
i am a 25 year old mother of 3 and married to a big child (31 going on 5). i live in a tiny little dot on the map colgate, saskatchewan canada. i'm closer to the us border than any large city in my own country. i am a stay at home mom (with 3 under 5 i have to) i have crafting ADD . . . i have a new obsession weekly it seems. i have sewn since i was kid (granny taught me) i also crochet (the other granny taught me as a kiddo) i recently learned to knit and then promptly cheated and bought a knitting machine. i dye yarn on occasion, i can cross stitch (havent in years though), i've dabbled in scrapbooking, and stamping, and card making, and paper quilting, embroidery (hand and machine), needle felting, stained glass, jewelry making, see where the ADD kicks in lol. these days i mostly crochet or sew. i am really wanting to learn spinning (my husband is thrilled about that *rolls eyes*)

I claim Mimiw for a wisty surprise and some vegetarian recipes.  This is my first claim for this round.

My name is Elise and I live in Chicago with my three cats.  I love to sew, collage, and crochet.  I work as a mental health case manager, so crafting is my respite and stress relief.  I am allergic to sterling silver, and I cannot wear earrings of any sort, regardless of what metal.  I love swapping, and I have loved everything I've gotten so far!

- a wallet with several credit card slots, and a roomy change slot

- stitch markers

- buttons, preferably older/vintage onesbut any will do.
- if anyone has a pattern for a maxi dress, I would love it.  My size (for patterns, not in real life) is 22.  And the pattern can be used!  No problem at all.
