Organizers: sunspotted and TwiztidBlood

*IMPORTANT PM INFO*: When sending PMs, please label them as OWS 45 with one of the following tags:
Package sent
Package received

So when sending the questionnaire, the subject will read OWS 45 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 44.

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, in charge of the discussion thread.

Banga is up from Round 44.

About Me: I'm 29 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 my homesickness, 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 recipe cards, local ephemera, cool postage, or a local postcard to their package gets mucho love me! Tons more info in my blog - see the link in my signature.

Crafted stuff:
- Linen, hemp, cotton or other natural fiber cloth napkins/placemats. My kitchen colors are cream, chocolate, and teal.
- A medium sized zippered mesh laundry bag for washing delicates in the washing machine (I reeaaally need one of these for tights!)
- Sweet baby girl clothing (size 24 mos.) in prints like Amy Butler, Freshcut or any similar styles of fabric. They don't need to be designer fabrics, that is just an idea of styles I like.
- unisex baby quilt with fabric like the above mentioned styles
- A ruby doll
- A matryoshhka brooch (this one is cool! http://www.flickr.com/photos/vasiliisa/3177818254/in/set-72157594249878925/) or a steampunk inspired brooch like the pendant I have wisted from this swap!
- A crocheted shawl (who knows, maybe one of you is super fast? Tongue https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=147576.0)
- A necklace like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/vasiliisa/2918853535/ with a chicken, goldfish, or Shakespeare!
- Or a necklace like this: http://www.wists.com/Banga/6c34f1dcf46ba8297315a06b3df1302f?offset=0
- Big Wish! A circle scarf in a jewel tone (like the ones at AA! I also saw a tute here someplace! http://store.americanapparel.net/circle-scarf.html)

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
- Altered tees or tanks like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=106867.msg1016302#msg1016302 or this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10284568 (I have tons more on my wist for inspiration!)
- Screenprinted or stenciled tees (again, check my wist for ideas)
- a jumper! I love some of the jumpers I've seen around craftster... these are both fab, too!
http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/2377086294/in/pool-wardrobe_remix
- A wide waist belt in yellow, red, teal, or a fun print
- An apron. I have a few to inspire you on my wist, just please make sure it is machine washable.
Thanks to Kalanit and redstar13!

- ink pads any pigment ink,  archival and acid free
- any issues of Crap Hound! http://www.boingboing.net/2005/07/24/crap-hound-seminal-c.html
- I love rubber stamps, especially travel, victorian, zetti, 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 altered art supplies sold on http://www.artchixstudio.com/,  or http://www.skybluepink.com/ etc.
- embossing inks and powders
- Vintage ephemera, text pages from old books (think crumbly old, not 80's old Smiley)

- I'd love anything inspired by anything I've wisted! Or feel free to check my blog for ideas!
- I love tights and knee socks (jewel tones or neutrals are great, textured, ribbed, argyle, striped whatever as long as they are not fluorescent!), I collect recipe cards, ephemera, vintage scarves, old books, aprons.

Thank you for choosing me!!

Just dropping a quick comment so that my blog, wist, and flickr links show up (since my wishlist is quoted and I did not include them in it!). They are in my signature! I will also add more items in case of stallage.

Happy April Fool's Day everyone!

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

I claim Banga for a wisty surprise and some vintage ephermera.

This is my 1st claim (0 sent, 0 received) and I am in the U.S. Here's a mini-bio with more info than you'll ever want.

I'm 33 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 along 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 October.

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 making jewelry, knitting (my first adult sweater is on the needles and it's getting really hard to keep going yep, its still on the needles a year later!) 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 are resin, crochet, 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!) Favorite colors are ocean-y colors (greens & blues & browns) and jewel tones (ruby, emerald, sapphire, etc.). Im also digging the black/white/grey combos lately.

I love anything to do with 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. 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, its updated, and wisty surprises are fun, fun, fun!!! Thank you so, so much to anyone who chooses me!

  • handknit squares for a Craftster blanket I have to double-check the sizes Ive already gotten, but I think they were 4 square. Only request is that the yarn you use is machine washable.
  • Felted beads pretty flexible on colors and sizes, Id like to have a stash of these for art projects.
  • Funny, sarcastic cross stitches or embroideries (I can frame 'em) - I've got a couple on my wist, but feel free to just do something you think I'd like.
  • Embroidered pillowcases- For our master bedroom, colors are blues and greens. Some type of sea animals or theme would be awesome.

  • some type of overnight bag that has a number of pockets to hold misc. toiletries and stuff (Ive seen some Amy Butler ones, like the weekender bag, 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
  • Napkins (matching or coordinating sets of 2, 4 or 6) kitchen colors are sage green and burgundy
  • Pair of Strawberry Shortcake, Super Mario, Smurfs or PacMan long pajama pants or pajama shorts (any type of fabric is fine, PM for measurements but I wear a Nick and Noras size large if that helps)
  • Jacket/Sweater/Sweatshirt for Snort I'd prefer something that has a neck band and belly wrap, rather than something I have to put her legs through. I can get you whatever measurements you need for this, but just for reference she's a 40lb beagle.

  • your artwork, whatever medium you like you can check my wist for inspiration (youll see I love a lot of whimsical pieces), but Ill love anything that isnt political, religious or deal with death. And I do have ample counter top display room, so it doesn't have to be a wall hanging piece of artwork.
  • inchies or ACEOs
  • Fun To Do lists - I love making To Do lists and would love sarcastic, funny, witty or pretty To Do List pads. (Or you can just paper punch a hole in them and tie them with a pretty ribbon.) Very flexible on this one, just make something you think I would like. And I'd prefer smaller to larger - probably nothing larger than half of an 8.5x11 sheet of paper.

  • silkscreened t-shirt with the phrase    neat-o mosquito     (feel free to add a cool image if you have one) womens L or XL, 40 bust. I'm fine with the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom t-shirts that Walmart sells for about $4.50 in the men's section - size Large, please.
  • 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!  roughly a womens large or XL, 40 bust. I'm fine with the Hanes or Fruit of the Loom t-shirts that Walmart sells for about $4.50 in the men's section - size Large, please.   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155224.msg1545936#msg1545936

  • 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!
  • Chunky necklaces or rings - in a style you think I might like, I've got some wisted for inspiration
  • Jewelry made with sea glass - inspiration on my wist, but I'm flexible
  • Any wisty-inspired jewelry - I've got lots on there

  • pretty suncatchers
  • Anything on the theme of 1950s Happy Homemaker with a twist (tongue-in-cheek kind of things) notepad, pendant, artwork, tote, t-shirt, whatever!
  • ANYTHING ON MY WISTS Im constantly adding new items and there's lots, lots, lots of small/medium items on there!

I like supplies, but am really trying to cut down on my stash, so please don't send me a supplies only package unless it's a single item that's medium sized all on its own. Thank you!
  • 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!
  • Random/unique/antique ephermera anything you think I might find amusing, intriguing, weird or otherwise useful.
  • Old typewriter keys The older the better. Even just the stickers or photos of the keys printed onto thick cardstock/chipboard would be cool.
  • Vintage/old keys The older and rustier, the better. Skeleton keys are awesome, but anything that looks old is terrific.
  • Rusty metal stuff Anything that I can use for altered art stuff, usually no bigger than a dollar bill or so.
  • Swarovski crystals - any color, any shape, any size

  • Wade figurines
  • Broken watches
  • Broken bits of rhinestone jewelry

I claim AsphaltQueen for wisty jewelry and artwork.

This is my first claim (0 sent, 0 received) I live in Michigan, USA.

I'm 31 and a single mom, I work full time at Bass Pro Shop and I'm going to school full time to be a Respiratory Therapist. When it comes to crafting I'll try anything once, but I've yet to learn to knit or crochet. I love camping and outdoorsy activities. My favorite season is fall and I love Halloween. I also love zombies, monkeys, bugs and the color brown. Really like brown and pink and brown and light blue.

I'm really not a fan of patchouli or pigs. I'm also a semi-veg, I don't eat beef or pork.

I have a Wist, the link is in my signature, anything wisty would be cool.
