I claim Rain for a niddy noddy and some hand-dyed roving.  Plus a few books from her Amazon wishlist if I can get hold of them in time!

This is my 3rd claim, 2 sent, 1 received.

I'm an ABD grad student in art history, 32, living in North Carolina.  I knit, sew, and am new to embroidery.  My aesthetic is very minimal--I try to surround myself with simple, beautiful, natural things.  William Morris said it best:  Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.  I love natural colors and materials, especially organic and sustainable, and various shades of grey, blue, green, and brown (and lovely clear red). 

Here's my wishlist.  Thank you!


felted rocks

large fabric bucket like this one or any of the burlap buckets at mayamade
reusable sandwich wraps and snack bags

fabric shower cap

knitted, crocheted, or sewn lavender sachets Im making socks for everyone on my Xmas list this year, and Id like to include a lavender sachet with each package.  Neutral colors and modern/ elegant fabrics would be best (think upholstery fabric or IKEA-type designs). 

drawstring bags to use for wrapping gift socks.  Big enough to fit a pair of socks.  Neutral colors and modern/ elegant fabrics would be best (think upholstery fabric or IKEA-type designs).  Simple muslin or osanburg cloth with botanical type stencils or stamps would be perfect!

soft embroidered handkerchiefs

dish scrubbies made from recycled plastic bags

handspun or hand-dyed yarn

tea towels -- embroidered, embellished, or stenciled

outer space stuffies -- these little robot / space guys
jewelry made of recycled china, fused glass, or stained glass

shawl closure / shawl pin to wear with my handknit sweaters

modern laminated-fabric placemats

hand-thrown green, brown, blue or purple ceramic bowls

hand-woven, -painted, -dyed, -printed, or -stenciled  textiles of any kind

pre-loved is more than fine for these!  and a supplies-only package is great.

wool yarn scraps --  Inspired by mimiw, Im collecting scraps of wool (or other animal fiber) for a scrappy knitting project.  Send me the odds and ends of your projects--handspun scraps work too!  Animal fibers only, and at least 1 yard per scrap, please!   A whole package of these would make me very happy!

needle-felting kit

dried lavender for making sachets

sock blockers in all sizes (kids, adult S, M, L)

blocking board

embroidery patterns --  Japanese, sublime stitching (especially artists series #7, #5, #3, chinese acrobats, vintage lamps, vital organs), clover (kitchen, animals, garden), wee wonderfuls, anything vintage / modern  (but no cutesy animals, country, or kitsch, please)

pom pom tree -- a type of pom pom maker

vintage nightgown and lingerie patterns, small-medium sizes

vintage sheets in good condition -- flowers are fine, but go easy on the pink!   

bird-watching kit -- I'm totally ignorant about birds but have been thinking that I would love to learn!

OR anything you like to craft that you think fits my taste based on my wishes or wists

Thanks so much!

i claim la_chrystelle for a painting (is 8x10 ok?) for her wall

First claim this round, 0 sent, 0 received

About Me
Hi there..My name is Amber, I live in Las Vegas, NV with my husband, best friend and dad (along with our mini pack of pups and other animals). I am an extremely open minded person. My hobbies are many and varied. My top 5 addictions are:
1. Disney (that is REALLY number one lol)
 2. TV (I have more favorite shows that most, going on 40 I believe, I need to update the list again hehe)
3. Music (mostly I listen to Disney Pop, Top 40 and Pop but I like most music aside from techno, metal and rapmellow or positive, thats what I like)
4. Crafting (I spend every single day crafting, with very few breaks, though I do take time off when I need to)
5. The Sims (I LOVE the Sims, I have played since 2001 and cant wait till June when the newest base TS3 comes out)

I am an open book, so if you have any questions about anything on my list or if you have an idea of your own, please feel free to run it by me, I dont bite lol.

I am allergic to wool and have a very sensitive nose (smoke and musk make my head hurt and I tend to sneeze). I love floral scents, fruity scents and baked good aromas. I am a staunch atheist, so I prefer not to receive anything from a religious text or image of a god (with the exception of Buddha, because though I dont follow the faith, I am Asian, and nothing screams Asian to me like Buddha). I also dont like leather or fur (faux is great though). Sexualized Disney things are a no-no but sexual things are awesome! Basically any adult themed item will make me a very happy me. I am not picky about colors, as long as they are theme accurate (like mickey mouse should never be neon, and things like that). I dont like anime at all, but I love Kawaii foods and inanimate objects, not Sanrio.

NOTE: anything on my wist would be awesome too!

--a bathrobe with my initials on it (again, if you can work Disney or Mickey Mouse into it, i would love it)
--t-shirts with ANY of my favorite shows (listed on my profile, there are over 30 choices)     -thank you sunspotted!
--a beach tote bag in teal, brown and white (my summer colors)
--Miami Dolphins themed anything (my husband and my favorite team)
--a peasant skirt (I love all colors, and can wear anything but wool)
--bubble bath, bath salts, bath teas....basically anything that will make bath time more relaxing and enjoyable
--handmade soap, oh how i love handmade soap (especially with tea leaf essential oil)
--jewelry (any theme..really ANY, i love jewelry, especially CHUNKY necklaces)   - Thank you phoenixfiredesigns
--knit or crocheted socks or slippers --thank you sunspotted!
--ANYTHING in Teal and White color schemes. My best friend was diagnosed in the first week of March with cervical cancer. She startsed chemo recently
--ANYTHING for any room in my house in the following themes. Hidden and Mickey themed things in the appropriate colors is a HUGE bonus
          Kitchen - Adventureland - anything Tiki , jungle (but not cutesy), Indiana      Jones or Pirates of the Caribbean themed that I can use to accent my kitchen in any way. Jars, towels, decorations, cozies for appliances.
          Dining Room - Frontierland - Big Thunder Mountain and Old West themes for the table, or the walls
          Living Room  - Tomorrowland - It is a black, silver and white color scheme, mostly we need wall art (ANY of the Attractions, past or present) and decorative elements
          Stairwell - Main St USA basically a vintage Americana theme, with a firm grasp on the Victorian styles from early american colonial builing. Curtains (I have 6 tall thin windows), wall art depicting Disney classic films, and decorative frames to add pictures of our family.
          Master Bedroom - Fantasyland -light pink, powder blue and cream with sparkles (that DO NOT flake, my husband has a glitter phobia, and he cant deal with any glitter that flakes, but anything that is naturally sparkly like chiffon and things like that are awesome). We have a King bed, and thats pretty much it. Wall art from any of the Princess films (Mulan, Pocahontas, Alice, etc are not princesses), decorative pillows and bed shams would be so welcomed.
          Master Bathroom  - Donald Duck - My husbands favorite character ever, and so I gave him the Master bath to show his love. The colors are Blue, White, Yellow and Orange and we need ANYTHING for that room (I havent started at all yet lol). Our master bath doesnt have a place for a shower curtain though.
          Foyer/Loft area - World Showcase - There are 11 countries in the World showcase, all vastly different. The main color scheme is Morroccan based, but for the walls, we want art and decorations for ALL the countries.
          Office/Studio - Mickey Mouse - Red, Black and White with a hint of yellow. Mostly decorative things, but anything that can STORE other things would be awesome. I never have enough storage J

Crafting Supplies
--a scrapbook kit for hiking (my new hobby)
-- Disney stuff. Be it characters or movies or the parks, or historical stuff (books on Walt or the making of the parks. I have some, but always love new opportunities to broaden my knowledge.
-- ANY STICKERS!!!!! (I started journaling, and I use the stickers to break up the pages, I love BIG ones a lot, but any type, size color, theme..anythingif you have used sets that you dont know what to do with, I promise they will find a home in my journals)
--black white and red cotton yarn (I want to make a sarong for my summer)
--bazzill cardstock (its the only kind I use, and I ALWAYS need more, so please feel free to send me any colors or even scraps)

I claim miss disney for some  chunky jewelry and probably an assortment of other things probably disney related Wink

About me I'm a 6 foot tall, 35 y.o. living in Hollywood.

Allergies - no patchouli, sandal wood, nag champa (not actually allergic to these, but they make my nose run horribly), If you send me food stuff, I don't eat mammals but I'm not a vegetarian. My S.O. is allergic to cats - but if you're careful and/or wash & clean thoroughly before sending , he'll be ok. On another food note - I'm allergic to blue food coloring, yes, just blue. If you send me anything that has a scent, I prefer citrus over any other smells.

Things I love: dogs, computers, technology, the internet, circuit board patterns, sci-fi, anime - anything Japanese really but especially hello kitty and san-x, dragon flies, the subway, hummingbirds, hearts, cherry blossoms, bikes

My favorite clothing designers = Oakley, Diesel, and Free People
Dress wise, I do conservative but hip for work (I work at an internet company so I can't dress too stuffy). I'm a t-shirt and jeans girl at home. I love the idea of high heel tennis shoes

Favorite colors: Cobalt Blue (any blue really as long as it doesn't look turquoise or aqua), Pink, Khaki Green, Red, Orange.

Yuck colors: I hate aquamarine, yellow, and turquoise - I don't really hate yellow, but it hates me. I don't like gold toned metals either.

Please package whatever you send me in the smallest box, envelope, whatever as possible because I have a TINY mail box.

Oh and NO Disney related stuff unless I specifically say it's ok!

On To The List

big wishes in red and bold

Wearable Stuff:

If you plan to make me any wearable stuff, please PM me for measurements.

1. simple a-line skirt knee length (will send you measurements)
2. Bloomers or bike shorts to wear with skirts while riding my bike.
3. 2" wide fabric belt that's kinda long (can be sash style or with a buckle)  - in any of my favorite colors, denim, or a pretty girlie print (fabric inspiration on my wists).
4. The coffee date dress from burda style. I love it but it needs so many mods to fit me it isn't funny (no really - to start, it's a petite...)
5. branching out knit scarf from knitty - I am a slow slow slow knitter....

Other Crafty Stuff:

1. amigurumi cuteness animals, plants, food with faces to join the rest of the stuffies in my cube. (take a look at my previous posts - I have a picture of all of them together posted on one of these galleries) - Thank you MandyLikesPie for the puppy and cactus & Miss moppet for my coffee cup - but no girl can have too many stuffed animals!
2. Your ATC's or ATC style artwork that I can hang in my cube at work (fairly small scale) - thanks banga (I can always use more Smiley )
3. a pop art style painting of my German Shepherd in blues or reds (I will provide photos, small scale as this will probably be on my desk at home or work)
4. A very simple lap quilt and/or pillow that I can keep at the office (can be fleece or whatever, not picky) with a Tinker Bell or Jessica Rabbit embroidered or stenciled on it this is the only wish Im lifting the Disney ban on.
5. Anything with a sewing machine or crochet hooks on it
6. re-usable sandwich wrappers & a large lunch bag (you know the ones made of fabric with a plastic lining to replace sandwich bags) Would LOVE if they had a circuit board pattern or ANY fabric from my wists. There is now an example on my wists - some other crafter read my mind. 
7. Pillows for my new couch (just plain - nothing girlie - PM me for more more info if you feel like making pillow covers)
8. magazine storage folders decorated with patterns from my wist or plain black. (setting up a studio to share with the hubby.
9. seat pads for stools in black or a pattern from my wists.


Im always up for a crafted surprise from the wists I think I like these wishes more sometimes  Grin you people are so creative!! (anything that says "thank you" in the title I've already received).


2. Vintage Buttons preferably from 30s to 60s any size, any color (no novelty buttons please I prefer the classic styles, but flowers are ok)
3. Felt squares, any color, wool (preferred) or polyester
4. half inch round circle hole punch
Tag shaped hole puncher
5. wacky shaped hole punch (interpret how you like)
6. ring blanks
7. Bails for necklaces - the little loopy things that you glue on the back of a pendant...does that make sense?
8. 6x6 frames in plain wood - no glass needed - used to frame stuff for a living can handle all but making the frames (6x6 is a weird size).
9. Yarn - I can always use yarn

I claim animegirlie for some ATC style art. This is my third claim - none sent.


I live in Australia but I have only asked for lightwieght items - so hopefully I won't stall the swap.  Wink

I love crafting and am currently exploring papercrafts.

I prefer natural fibres and fabrics to synthetic ones (for environmental and tactile reasons). I adore vintage florals (pre 1970), vintage brocade/damask. baroque/rococo style prints, cotton velvet, botanical prints and fabrics with silhouettes of leaves or branches/trees like Joel Dewberry's ones. I'm not a fan of stripes, spots, plaids/checks, skulls, country/cutesy, or disney/anime stuff.

I love berry shades, dark reds, muted pinks & purples, leaf green, and chocolate brown.  No neons or black please, and I'm not too keen on yellow, orange, or navy.

Please see my profile and wists for more info.



NEW Pocket tissue holder
I would love a holder/cover for the pack of pocket tissues I carry around in m purse. Please see my fabric and colour preferences above and check my wist for ideas.

Drawstring bags
I could really use some cotton drawstring bags to carry my shoes and underwear when I go on vacation. See my colour and fabric preferences above.

b]Crocheted cotton purse[/b]
I would love a small crocheted purse made from cotton yarn in dark reds, purples and  berry shades with a long shoulder strap & flap - big enough to hold my wallet, keys, & phone when I go on walks around the neighbourhood. One made from granny squares would be nice. Teaching Jonah made me a beautiful pastel one in the last round which I am using in the summer months and I would love one for winter as well.

Crocheted cotton drink bottle holders Thanks Miss_Kassandra
I would love crocheted cotton drink bottle holders with a carrying strap for my children's water bottles. Both bottles are 750mls in size. My daughter likes reds, pinks and oranges and my son likes blues and greens. (No synthetic yarns please).

Crocheted Cotton Flowers
I'm collecting crocheted flowers made with cotton yarn in all shades of pink and berry shades to match the beautiful crocheted purse that I received in a previous round.

Crocheted cotton market/shopping bag
One that folds up into its own pocket. See my colour preferences above and my wists for examples


Knitted Woollen Socks
I would love a pair of pure wool hand knitted socks in any of the berry shades. I'm not really into stripes but a variegated yarn would be nice. Shoe size is US 9


Screen/gocco printed cards
See my wists for ideas. I love botanical prints - modern or vintage inspired.


Earrings/rings/brooches made with vintage floral cabs or cameos
See my colour preferences above and my wists for examples. Please use sterling silver earring wires as my ears are allergic to nickel.

Crafted items from my wists

No other types of scrapbooking supplies please as I'm trying to match what I already have

Other Supplies
- vintage buttons in mother of pearl or in flower shapes. I want to glue thenm on to things so only want flat bottomed ones please.

My favorite color is bright royal blue. I also really like chocolate brown and teal together. Any questions, just pm me! Oh yeah, my only aversions are smoke and anything inappropriate around kids or things my little ones will destroy (knick knack type things).

Dislikes -  anything non-vegetarian or exposed to smoke, anything that looks like it belongs in my grandmas house, anything too cutesy, flowery stuff, pastels, I prefer realistic like things (i.e. a real fish instead of a cartoon one)
Likes beach/fish/ocean/dolphin things, my son loves sharks, balls, sunglasses, shoes, guitars, drums, music, animals, anything that makes noise (he is weird!).

I claim leighi123 for reusable produce bags and a color matching game for her son

Claim #4 this round - I just can't help myself!  Do we have swappers anonymous here?  (2, 1, 1)

I am Nicole, in my late 20s, full time SAHM to my 15 month old daughter, and part time childcare worker.  I live in the Denver, CO area.  Prior to my SAHM-ing, I was an elementary music teacher, so I love all things musical!  Crafts I like to do include scrapbooking, knitting, and sewing; although I do dabble in lots of different things.  I love earthy colors, especially browns, greens, grays, and blues.   I dislike neons, licensed cartoon caracters (think Dora, Disney, etc.), and skulls.


** Knitted or crocheted longies, shorties, or skirty for my munchkin PM me for exact measurements, but shes pretty much a medium
Yummy handspun yarn goodness
Jewelry ala phoenixfiredesigns  I wear silver toned jewelry; necklaces and earrings - but not too dangley or large on the earrings, as I have a toddler who is fascinated with shiny things.
Sewing machine cover in a fun fabric thanks claire313!!
Skirt like this one  http://wists.com/6a3f325dcfa1a05b96d4c8f2e1d66085?q=skirt&offset=0 PM me for sizing info

Knit socks love love love!  Especially with cute patterns in the stitching!
Re-usable sandwich wraps
Everyday cloth napkins a set of 6 would be great, my kitchen is sage green, kind of a French country feel   thanks freestyle!  I could use one more set, maybe chocolate brown or tan?
Placemats maybe to match my napkins?  Or not, just placemats to match my kitchen would be great!
Sun hat for my munchkin
Vintage inspired apron, examples on my wists

Embroidered pillowcases for the master bedroom, quilt colors are either dark green, burgundy and pink, or dark green, sage green, and a medium country blue depending on which quilt Im using.  Im so lucky I have two quilters in my family!  I can get you a photo of the quilts if you need it.
Girl Poppet with fair skin (normal skin color) and some wild crazy hair color
Small to medium-sized pincushion I have a monster huge octopus one that I LOVE, but it is not very mobile.  I would love one that could go with me all over.  Maybe a wrist pincushion!
Handmade pottery a tea pot or cup/saucer set would be really great!
Squashed cat coasters from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=157293.0

OK *deep breath* I claim musiclady for handspun yarn, some extras and possibly a few other bits.

This is my first claim. Zero sent, zero received. Just to confuse you all, this list is now ever so subtly different.

Hi! I'm Seph, and I live in London. Steampunky/antiquey jewellery in copper and brass can tempt me, but I mostly wear silver - and never, ever gold. My favourite colour is really offensively hot pink. I like swirly, flock, damask, fleur de lys, filligree-type patterns, especially if they're glamorously boudoir-looking and in black/pink/white. Think Victorian elegance and gothic glamour :-) I am however by no means immune to the cute and kitsch, especially quirky 50s-esque styles! I have a Thing for ampersands (the '&' symbol) and other particuarly loved motifs include theatrical tragi/comi masks and padlock/key things. Especially the locks! I love anything with the words 'slut' or 'whore' on it, especially if it seems out-of-place (see the teaset on my wists). I am a vegetarian, so please nothing that isn't veggie. My proportions are 47-44-54 and I'm 5'2".

You can of course find all sorts of amazingly awesome stuff that I love very much on my wists, and a wisty surprise is always more than welcome! Super duper massive wishes are in bold.

Crafted things:
  • A set of four (two larger and two smaller) decorated/handmade/altered food and water bowls for my cats
  • Any sort of black skirt, preferably either very long or very short but other lengths good too :-) Non-black skirts also welcomed if you think they're 'me'.
  • A full-length apron, possibly with a pocket, in a gorgeous fabric. Something stylish and retro housewifeish and kitsch. The kitchen is going to be aqua and black with accents of zebraprint, so if it could co-ordinate with that I'd be very happy :-)
  • Handspun yarn, the art-yarnier the better!
  • Soaps, bath bombs, bath salts, etc. If you make me something that turns my bathwater pink I will love you forever. I am especially wanting some felted soap.
  • A netbook case for an Acer Aspire One (google should give you measurements), ideally with a space/pocket for the power lead.
  • I'm gearing up for uni and after loads of awesomely beautiful things that might help. Lavishly overdecorated ringbinders, pens, notebooks, pencil cases and the like SO MUCH appreciated!
  • Decorated/handmade/altered/awesome crochet hooks. I mostly use between 4.5mm and 7mm.
  • A smallish, compact project bag for my crochet.
  • I would totally adore a tree of life pendant like the ones pheonixfiredesigns makes, with rich green stones.
  • A largeish tote bag, with handles long enough for me to carry over my shoulder. This would need to be really quite durable, please - it's going to get used a lot, and sometimes have quite heavy things in it!
  • Bookmarks :-D
  • Safe, sturdy toys for my cats. Eric likes balls and things that roll around for him to chase, Gwendolen (whose name almost nobody can spell right, for some reason) likes dangles and things for me to wiggle for her to attack.
  • Jewelery! Though I do wear studs if they're cool enough I prefer big, dangly earrings and don't mind if they're a bit heavy. I have largeish wrists (7.5-8in) and I look really rubbish in chokers, preferring necklaces that hang to the decolletage [grin] I'm also allergic to nickel.
  • Stitch markers. I seriously don't have any. Yeah, I realise how random that is.
  • Polymer clay chocolate charms, the ones that look like the chocs/truffles you get in posh chocolate boxes.

Supplies and extras:
  • Basically any beading/jewellerymaking supplies you can think of. Believe me, I'll find a use for them! Particular loves, in case you need help, are cameos, unusual and ornate clasps/finishings/findings and spectacular focal beads.
  • Ditto for papercraft/scrapbooking. Again, particular favorites are gorgeous 12x12 papers, unusual alphabet stickers, those sticky 3d embellishments and brads. My favourite papercraft company, for inspiration, is probably 7Gypsies :-)
  • Wool roving/tops/batts, of the spinnable sort rather than the felting sort.
  • Yarn. Basically any yarn. I want a stash [grin]
  • Just lately I've been feeling an urge to start collecting buttons. I have no idea why this is. But they're awesome, and I want to be able to decorate things with them and use them in jewellery and stitch them onto stuff, and I just suddenly want to have loads of buttons. So yeah, buttons would be great!
  • FOs, EOs, glitter, pigments, dried petals...anything for soap/bath bombs, basically. Also the more basic supplies are always appreciated - citric acid and m&p base especially.
  • Fat quarters of fabulous fabrics
  • Kool-aid or similar in any flavour - it doesn't exist this side of the pond, and I want to experiment with using it to dye fiber/yarn. Also I kind of want to try it, having heard so much about it [grin]
  • A resin starter kit. I've been wanting to try resin for ages but getting all the supplies together seems so complicated, and I'm convinced I'll buy *slightly* the wrong thing and it will all go horribly bad.
  • If you're sending from the US, I'd really appreciate some Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - I LOVE them, and we don't get them over here.
  • And for that matter, all chocolate! Mmmmm, chocolate...milk chocolate is my favourite and I love anything with peanut butter (though am not so crazy about actual peanuts). I don't much like Hershey's, either.

Thank you lots and lots and lots in advance [grin]
