Organizers: sunspotted and TwiztidBlood

*IMPORTANT PM INFO*: When sending PMs, please label them as OWS 40 with one of the following tags:
Package sent
Package received

So when sending the questionnaire, the subject will read OWS 40 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 39.

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:


sunspotted - Will be your organizer, in charge of your claims, your sends and your receives, and your approval
TwiztidBlood - Will be co-organizer.

chibilightangel is up for first claim.

I claim shiitake for a handmade book and some kool-aid for dying.

Hi. Im Jennifer and I live in beautiful Quebec, Canada. Im 23 and Ive recently graduated university and am now working as a civil engineer in a local firm with some really amazing people.

My main crafts include counted thread embroidery, spinning, beading/jewelry making and knitting. I love to try out different crafts just because I can to see if I might enjoy them.

I dont have any specific allergies, but the smell of smoke really bothers me. I love blues and greens, and also love deep reds and jewel tones. Creams and browns are also lovely.

I collect stamps so if you could ask that the post people put on one of the current fancy stamps (sometimes called collector stamps) on anything you send my way, that would be greatly appreciated.

Crafted items:

Cloth pads: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=143557.msg1412524#msg1412524 I want to more environmentally friendly so both period pads and non-period liners are appreciated
Wire-wrapped pendant
Tree pendant I have a few in my wists
Some fun batts for spinning. Id like to try wools other than merino and other animal, synthetic or plant fibres. For colorways, blues and greens are my favorites, but I really love reds and purples too. Jewel tones are great.  (Thanks the noodle princess! Loved the beautiful ones you sent)
Anything Mario themed (old school is best)
Anything Final Fantasy. My favorites are VI, VII and X
Something with a dragon on it (not a Chinese dragon though)
Green Man art. Im thinking it would be for my office at work\
Hand-knit socks! Ive started knitting my own but its that much more special when someone else has knit them for you
Amiguri goldfish. Im looking for something that isnt cartoony
Anything from or inspired from my wists (http://wists.com/chibilightangel)

Roll of freezer paper because I cant find any around here
Cute Japanese print fabric
Tools for lampworking
Fine tip sharpies

Fruity black or green tea blends (loose or bags is fine as I drink both)
Interesting stamps from around the world. Obliterated and just clipped from envelopes is fine with me.

I will claim perlabella for some stitch markers, shrinky dink paper, and some holiday fabric.

This is my first Claim this round and none sent.

I am 28 years old and live in Wisconsin with my husband and our two cats, Gizmo and Nala. I love crafts that reflect nature and/or reuse and recycle materials. I also like funky, freaky, weird, cool, unusual craft items. My favorite colors are chocolate brown, blue and green. I am not a big fan of pinks or any thing too girly. I love to sew, decoupage, make paper and play with polymer clay.

On to the wish list:

Super Big wishes are bold

Crafted Items

I claim Untouchable Face for some roving and something wist inspired.
This is my first claim this round.

About Me: I'm 28 and I'm in MI, USA, finally settled after 4 moves in less than 2 years! I'm currently living thrifty as a High School English teacher, trying to control my 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 mucho love me! Tons more info in my blog - see link in my sig.

Crafted stuff:

- Linen, hemp, or other natural fiber cloth napkins. My kitchen colors are cream, chocolate, and teal.
- A cozy and super warm knit or fleece scarf to wear to U of M football games. It should be wide and long to wrap up my head, it gets really cold up here in November! The U of M colors are navy and gold so maybe stripes? http://www.ewolverine.com/COLLEGE_Michigan_Wolverines_Jerseys
- Altered art ornaments for my Christmas tree
- A pair of knucks or cabled arm warmers that reach halfway up the arm (maybe in a berry shade? or a neutral color?)
- A tam that is big enough to fit over all of my hair in a neutral color (I'm slowly adding some to my wist for ideas)
- A big, crazy, granny square scarf (we had an afghan made of scrap yarn by my grandmother that I loved and is now lost! It was burgundy, brown, garnet, orange, turquoise, you name it! I'd love a scarf that is reminiscent of that afghan!)
- A wide scarf with fringe in any color except orange or neon 
- Language/Literature inspired Artwork for my classroom. Look to your favorite books authors, plays, poems (or mine, they are listed on my blog) to inspire a piece of artwork that I could hang in class to brighten up my boring room!

If you would like to make me something wearable, please PM me for measurements and specifics Smiley
- I'm a skirt nut... see my wists for ideas

I'd like to claim Banga for a tam.

This is my first claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

List in a minute!

I'm in North Carolina/US, late 20s, recently married with one cat, two kittens and a giant dog.  It's been so long since I've participated in OWS that I'm having a hard time with this one, but I'm pretty easy going. I love greens and browns, natural fabrics, cottons, canvas, linen.  We are working on leading a simpler life this year and it's hard work! If I stall the list, shout at me.


Hand thrown coffee mugs Absolutely adore these: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10760703

Handmade Beeswax or Soy Candles. Any scent but strong florals.

Cat bed for my kittens. Prefer browns or dark colors that wont show cat hair too easily.

Fabric placemats--maybe with the center quilted?

PJs/Yoga Pants in natural fabrics. Im a tiny lady. ?

Tea Cozy for my tea pot. Can be sewn, knitted, crocheted.

Sewn, knee-length jersey knit skirts.  PM me if you're interested in making some but need more info.

Half-length Apron. Browns, greens or reds, any style.

Small stained glass/suncatchers for my deck door.

Handmade cat toys. Ive got two kittens that feel the need to be constantly entertained.

Eclectic/found object windchime.

Handmade birdfeeders or bird houses.

Hand-dyed/hand-painted yarn.  Prefer worsted weights.

Big, chunky rings.  Here are some I like: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=cat2_list_7&listing_id=16001711

Turquoise wire-wrapped pendant

A set of four hand-thrown appetizer plates or shallow bowls (they can be small-ish) in greens or browns.

Handspun yarn.

Altered journal.

Handmade, wooden shawl pin

Manly checkbook cover in manly colors like brown. Maybe canvas? Something durable and simple.

Handmade holiday cards. Prefer something simple and winter, not holiday, inspired.

Slippers for the chilly evenings!

Polymer clay buttons.

Grill-themed mitts to be part of a holiday gift for my brother and his wife.

Embroidered handkerchiefs.  Simple embroidery is fine, as Im likely to use these. ?

Black legwarmers -- I've got a pair in green, thanks to addicted2knitting, and I wear them all the time. Perhaps another pair in my collection would be nice. Smiley

Anything inspired by my wists, http://www.wists.com/lapoli

Craft Supplies

Worsted weight, 100% wool yarns.

100% wool (or cashmere, hehe) sweaters with sewn seams (not serged ).  Im addicted to ripping them to reuse yarn! (Ask if you have sweaters youre looking to get rid of dont know what types of seams they have.)


Lavender sachets.


Green teas.  Loose or bagged.

Heirloom Vegetable Seeds.

Really. Shout at me if I stall! I'll update with more ideas. Smiley

I'd like to claim lapoli for a tea pot cozy.

This is my first claim of three allowed, zero sent, zero received.

A little bit about me: I am a 27 year old woman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, student, and special educator.  Family plays a large part in my life as does the outdoors. I live in Maine and we hike, bike, canoe/kayak, geocache, snowshoe, camp, walk, and do just about anything except for organized sports if it takes place outdoors.  I also like to read, play with my kids, host family dinners/events, and (of course) craft.  My favorite crafts are sewing (clothing for my children, quilts, bags/purses), scrapbooking (although I have taken a brief break from it for right now), crocheting, and embroidering.  I am new to spinning and have been working with a drop spindle; I am saving my money to get a wheel and am building up a fiber stash (as I am not using it as quickly as I am building it  Wink ). 

Toddler Bonnet http://madebypetchy.blogspot.com/2008/06/free-pattern-toddler-hatbonnet.html for either my two year old (red and/or black or with Thomas fabrics) or my four year old (purple, black, pink or pretty much any color out there).  We would like the lining to be flannel or fleece or minkee as it gets a wee bit cold up here.

Some wrapples for our lunches--pears would be nice as well (pearples?) http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14455093

A pendant making kit (for the eldest, this is what she wants to make for Christmas gifts for her friends) like this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15000148 or this http://www.makeandtakes.com/links/scrabble-tile-pendant-tutorial or this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14928442

I never thought I would be saying this (as our middle child was toilet trained at just over a year and our oldest came to us at 4) but cloth diapers to fit a two year old (30 pounds, currently is in a size 4/5 diaper as he outgrew all but a couple pairs of training pants).  Our two year old just isn't interested in toilet training.
Some fingerless mitts for me in supersoft yarn that isn't aryclic.  Blues, greens, browns, or grays would be great.

A super hero cape like this http://pukingpastilles.com/?p=57 for either my two or four year old.  Any color would be great. 

Pinafores in sizes 5/5t/6 in fun prints preferably blue/brown/pink colors but the middle child is fairly easy going (example on wist).

Felt food veggies or sets (no pizza as we have a fabulous set and no meat cause that really isnt part of our meals but perhaps breakfast or sandwhich)

This hat http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=10 in blues, greens, grays, or browns.  I have a largish head/a bit of hair so it should be done on the larger size. 

The loop de loop scarf http://sarah-london.blogspot.com/2008/07/here-we-go-loopy-lou.html

Anything from/inspired by my wist: http://www.wists.com/girlosun_9 and there are a lot of ideas here, please feel free to craft something you would like to craft!

Pendant or pendants such as http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10371924, or this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13217285, this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13888420, or this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=11823943  I especially love the robot but I love them all

Handspun-->many examples on my wist

Gocco Cards with envelopes.  I will be giving them in gratitude wraps as gifts (like on the Soule Mama blog).  Deer, owls, trees, acorns, and/or pretty much anything nature inspired. 

This neckalce http://www.beadingdaily.com/blogs/projects/archive/2008/08/01/cerulean-falls.aspx  love the colors and design

And these are both beyond huge but a person can wish Smiley this dollhouse http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2008/08/fabric_dollhouse_tutorial.html?CMP=OTC-5JF307375954 and this spaceship http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=66029are both looked at by me frequently.  Even better would be the patterns modified used as inspiration for making a fold up train or a hollow train with figures to go inside.


Diamond Glaze

Fiber (batts or roving) for spinning . . . lapoli really set me up in the iyp swap and now I just want more!  I'll be getting a wheel soon so I'll be also be using a bit more fiber Smiley  Examples of colors I like are on my wist but I am pretty open to any colors (as I crochet for a large variety of people)

Bend the Rules Sewing by Amy Karol (gently used is fabulous)

Linen→Used or Thrifted pretty much any color

Anything from/inspired by my wist:

linen double fold bias tape at least a 1/2 inch

unpainted wooden nesting dolls
