All packages for this swap are due to be sent out by April 25th! If you wish to redeem negative feedback but did not have a duplicate account with that negative, you should either send to your original partner or check the swap angel board for angel opportunities.

If you have already chosen someone in the swap to send to, please be aware that the due date is approaching. Swappers who had duplicate accounts with negative feedbacks MUST send by April 25th to amend this feedback.


As some of you may know, we are currently running an amnesty program for people who have created duplicate accounts and have old negative feedback to clear up. We are requiring each participant to be a swap angel for each negative they have on a past account, plus one extra time. The good news is that we have several people who wish to redeem their feedback. Currently, though, there are not nearly enough angel positions for them to sign up for in order to make things right.

For this reason, we have decided to hold a special type of swap, open only to Friends Of Craftster and to people who are participating in the amnesty program or are redeeming negative feedback. Here's how it will work:

Only FOCs may post wishlists. Because the FOCs will not be sending a package, you may join even if you are currently involved in 5 swaps.

If you are an FOC, you may pm me with your signup information and then post a wishlist. Please include a few large items you might wish for, as well as several medium and small items. Remember, the more realistic your list, and the more items you include, the better chance you have of getting chosen! If you are chosen, your list will be removed and your swapper will send you a few items from your list. The swapper will choose one large or two mediums, and then two of your small items. When you receive, you will contact me so I can help fix your swapper's feedback, and then you will post in the gallery and include a nice thank you message to your sender. Feedback will not be given for this swap, as FOCs will not actually be swapping and senders will be getting a negative removed from their profile.

FOCs: because this is not a regular swap, there is a chance that either you will not get chosen, or you might get flaked on after you are picked. Please note that there will be no angels for this swap. If you don't receive, though, there is no loss as you will not be sending out items to your swapper. Each FOC may post a wishlist just once. Once you are chosen, your wishlist will be removed.

Best of luck to all the swappers redeeming feedback, and to all you FOCs hoping for a little treat in the mail.  Smiley

Details of swap:

Swappers wishing to redeem feedback will choose a FOC and notify me. Upon being chosen, the FOC will remove the wishlist so others have a chance of being chosen. No one may be picked more than once. The swapper will have until April 25 to send, but may send sooner if they wish. Upon receiving, the FOC will post pics to the gallery and thank their sender. No feedback will be given for this swap, and no angels will be provided in the case of someone not receiving.

About Me
Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. My favorite colors are jewel tones like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber. I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.) My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy. I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together. My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes. I love to read, I enjoy photography and I love all things Disney!

I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.

My Wishlist
Please feel free to use my wist or my amazon wishlist for even MORE ideas and inspiration! Anything on either, I'd love to receive.

Large Crafts
*big wish* -- A robe like this one. It's just so lovely and I desperately need a robe. (3/4 length or long-sleeves, and mid-length overall. Not too short, not too long. I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*big wish* -- A tote like this one. I love and covet everything about it from the colors, fabric to the pattern.

*big wish -- A purse in this kind of style. I LOVE, LOVE LOVE this bag. The mix of the cord and the cable...? LOVE.

*big wish* -- This scarf in these exact colors. I think this is one of the most perfect things ever. I don't really need scarves as a rule because I live in Florida, but I'd find reasons to wear one like this!

 -- A weekender bag like Amy Butler's style. There are some tips here as well. It could be in different fabrics though. (Maybe brown/blue?) It's just too challenging of a project for me!

 -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, glass mosaic item, etc. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself.

 -- An argyle vest like this. I love the style and pattern but it could be in a different color. And it wouldn't need to be wool since my skin gets itchy from wool. I wear a US size 4 but could give measurements if needed.

 -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft (no wool please because it itches me) I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. (HUGE bonus if it's argyle pattern. I don't know why but I love argyle.)
 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or a bowl or a tea mug or whatever. Again, a skill I don't have but love.

 -- Wrist warmers in this pattern. It's just utterly cool.

Medium Crafts
*big wish* -- An apron like this or this  or like this especially if it were in teal blue and chocolate brown colors. (Or used like cute owl fabric or such.) I wear a US size 4 or can send measurements if need be.

 -- A purse like the first one here or like this. I like the shape of both styles but it's really the look and colors of the fabric I'm really sold on. So something in similar colors/patterns would be great.

*big wish* -- A migraine therapy kit like this.  I have had migraines for more than 15 years and this kind of thing DOES help.

*big wish* -- A Slanket! I almost bought a "snuggie" but the fabric was icky. (It was like thin felt.) I want soft, awesome microfiber fleece stuff, you know? Something long enough to cover my toes as well. I'm forever using a blanket on the couch so this would come in hand GREATLY.

*big wish* -- An Autumn Leaf Barrette. I miss autumn since we don't get leaves changing colors here in Florida.

 -- A cool fitted tee like these. I love the colors of these examples. I wear a US size 4 or typically a size small or medium. I pretty much live in baby doll/fitted tees.
 - http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b8278a3977c184f0454e3661b44d5913?offset=0
 - http://www.wists.com/PhoenixFireDesigns/b43d1d191ced6ae1babfd7c537c6ecc1?offset=0

 -- Yoga pants! (examples: like this or this) Roomy, 3/4 length or floor length (30" inseam) comfy, soft, cottony, not too tight on the waist. I lounge in them on my days off and I just love 'em. (US size 4 short length or I can send measurements if need be)

 -- Anything with a phoenix on it. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items here as inspiration.

-- A small purse/wristlet like this one.

 -- Something (surprise me!) incorporating owls, penguins, bats, cats or red foxes. They're my favorite animals.

 -- Disney stuff. Be it characters (like Mickey, Figment, Belle, Mike & Sulley, etc.) or movies (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Monster's Inc., Lady and the Tramp, etc.) or the parks (I live near WDW but I've never been to Disneyland), or historical stuff (books on Walt or the making of the parks, etc.), or things I can use/take to/wear about any of the above, I LOVE DISNEY. So by all means, get creative! Grin

 -- Things for my apartment in Teal Blue and Chocolate Brown. I love these colors together. And I'd love something in them for the home. A quilt or throw; art; kitchen accessories; pillows; curtains, etc., etc.

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists or my wishlist, or the colors I like and see what you can make that you think I'd like.

Small Crafts

-- An ipod touch cozy - I love this style and the soft fleece interior.

 -- Fused glass or glass (microscope) slide you think I'd like.

 -- A ribbon organizer. Doesn't have to be this fabric. It's more the idea and the style of storage that I like here. Chocolate/Teal color combo would be great as would fun/cute fabric or prints (like owls or something.)

 -- Sewing stuff: Such as... Fabrics!  (I'm a new sewer so I covet fabrics now.) Also, Sewing notions, tools or other helpful stuff a newbie sewer would need/covet/want/drool over. (Threads, buttons, snaps, etc.)

 -- Complete Guide To Sewing Book in either this new edition or this older edition. I'm still a very novice sewer who could make use of a reference book like this. (Especially since no one I know locally sews!)

 -- Starter resin kit/supplies (resin, molds, etc.)

 -- Starter rubber stamp carving stuff. (Maybe a kit or items like tools, the rubber to carve into, how-to/instructions, etc.)

 -- Gemstones and gemstone beads. In every shape, size and color. Donuts, cabs, chips - anything! I LOVE working with gemstones and I can never, ever have enough.

 -- Lampwork beads.

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such. Also, I love Swarovski crystal, unique clasps or toggles, and jewelry wire in 16 gauge and 24 gauge in any color. Gemstone chips are awesome as well since I make Tree of Life pendants with them.

-- Tea! Especially fruity ones.

 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.

 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)

 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)

 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)

Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

I'm from Wisconsin, USA and I never pass up an opportunity for free stuff!  I'm a vegetarian/animal rights activist so please don't use animal products such as horn, bone, or non-recycled leather in my projects.   I like natural themes- rocks and water and trees and such and also natural colors. I don't like pastels or neons or plastic or anything too "synthetic."

I live in Alberta, Canada and I'm mostly a stay-at-home mom to 2 teenage sons but also have a casual job as a bank teller.  I love bright colors but also dark green, dark blue and dark purple.  I have themes in my house each season and need to add to most of them except winter.  For spring I decorate with tulips, summer is summer flowers, fall is sunflowers and scarecrows and winter is snowmen but I already have an over abundance of them.  This is my wishlist but feel free to go through my wists, too, if you don't see anything here that catches your eye:


Purse or coin purse made from juice boxes or candy wrappers (the woven kind - there are examples in my wist)

8x10 cross stitch picture featuring tulips or summer flowers

My hubby likes the yellow character (peanut) from M&M's and if someone would knit him one of these (about 12 inches tall) I'd be so happy!

Full size apron (ladies XL) made with a bright colored fabric

Knit fingerless gloves (made with black acrylic yarn)


Polymer clay food items - especially mexican food!  These could be magnets or just plain.

Resin bracelet with candy in it

Knit dishcloths

Crochet hooks with polymer clay covered handles - sizes 5.00 and 6.00

5x7 cross stitch picture featuring tulips or summer flowers


Summer flower magnets

Mini (I mean really mini) knit sweaters (there are examples in my wist)

Cotton Fabric with Christmas lights, ornaments or candy canes (minimum 1/2 yard, please)

Cotton fabric with craft related items on it (minimum FQ, please)

Thread in any color

Buttons (vintage preferably but new would be okay too)

My hubby collects hot sauce and so if you'd like to include a small bottle in the package I'd be thrilled!  I'm also very fond of sugar free gum and love trying gum from around the world so if you pick me, please send me some

My name is Kendy, I am 29, I live in California, with my boyfriend and my awesome cat Mar! I am vegan, and all my great info in on my profile!  I did a private swap and was flaked on big time, maybe the person is around and would claim me.

My wishlist:
Large items:

Potentially useful info: 

Im located in northern Virginia, horrible at writing bios, and getting married in April. I'm allergic to tobacco, so please don't claim me for unwashable fiber or paper goods if anyone in your home smokes (even outside).  Sorry!

Besides Craftster, I'm stalkable on:
*My wist is not as useful as you might think (because it's a list of things I like, not necessarily ones I want.  Please read the comments on items!)
*my etsy favorites (see link in signature) sort of pick up where my wist left off...
*this list has the kinds of things I like on it in no particular order, but if you're looking for favored colors or something, they're here



*handspun/art yarn.  Actually, this could be any size, depending on the amount, since Im happy with shorter lengths as well.  (there are some examples on my wists)
*a tudor rose purse in black or gray, only with a single long strap
*a winged sweater, though preferably with full sleeves and a slightly more modest front
*a pineapple lace overskirt or something similar


*superwash sock yarn.  (in any weight from baby to chunky, actually, at least 6 oz)
*a screen printed or stenciled shirt (ping me for size-- or just fabric to make something out of would be great, too) with line drawings or silhouettes of birds, dandelions, or bare tree branches on it
*something in tattoo-style embroidery (a la the tattoo swap a few months back) but not 50's style pin-ups, please
*handmade & naturally scented soaps (I prefer vanilla/nut/oatmeal sorts of scents to fruit flavors, although things like rose or jasmine are also nice) I also prefer a lighter scent to a heavier one...
*a simple-but-elegant purse suitable for formal occasions that is just large enough to hold a wallet, keys, and chapstick and has a long strap so that it hangs at hip length when put over the shoulder.  I'm thinking white, gray, black, or multiple colors of warm brown, but other colors could be cool, too. 
*handmade paper
*nature-themed or old fashioned (pre-1930s style images: Victorian/Edwardian/Art Nouveau/medieval, etc) rubber stamps
*a needle-felting kit
* a cozy or carrying case for my 15 laptop (macBook pro) so it wont get scratched up when I take it places
*rainbow striped or earthtones leg warmers
*a jar of whimsies


*decorated push-pins or magnets (or both!)
*decorated altoids tin (any style)
*necklaces or light-weight bracelets
*ephemera and/or whimsies (particularly old-fashioned things) suitable for gluing or sewing onto other things
*handmade buttons
*your stash of unwanted yarn ends that are too short to make real projects out of Wink
*reusable cloth teabags
*needle roll for DPNs (most of what I have are around 8 long)


Feel free to re-interpret the sizes of things (50 matching push pins could easily be a large, or 2 sheets of handmade paper a small...) or ask me any questions you might have.  Smiley
