I claim Twistdblood for the hanging mail organiser, the produce bags for shopping and the pill cozy for her handbag.

This is my second claim for this round (2 claims, 0 sent)

This is me -
Hello, I'm Sandra from  England.  I live with my daughter, our dog cat,  3 rabbits and lots of other pets.

I love simple, hand crafted things, with their inspiration taken from nature where possible, if not form then colour.  I love muted colours and monochrome or tones of the same colour and although I love colour I don't like them all together as I feel you can't appreciate them fully.

My favourite colours are green, blue, purple, silver - I dislike pink intensely.

My favourite season is autumn.

My absolute favourite art movement is Art Nouveau.

I dont like flowery floral prints, but bold prints (as in the art nouveau fabrics etc) are OK.

I love heart shapes (not romantic stuff, but bold ones).

I have sensitive skin, so cant use perfumed soaps or bath bombs, bubble bath etc.  I dont smoke and am a strict vegetarian.

I love to recycle and re-use as much as I can.  I am currently collecting thrift shop clothing for a quilt.  If you crafted something recycled for me I would truly love it.

I love seeing what others can craft, and how skilful and resourceful they are.
After a period of ill health I am now able to spend more time crafting, and enjoying doing so when in the past I never had the time, so anything to help me keep organised would be really appreciated.

Thanks for looking at my list, I realise after writing it  that it makes me look incredibly fussy and picky Im not really, Im easily pleased.

Check out my Wists, theres loads of ideas on there.

If you should choose to craft for me any of the items below would be fantastic:

Bag to organise my crochet items/projects. Thanks A2K
Small afghan.
Patchwork or quilted bags to hold/store  things eg pencil case, drawstring bags to store wool, wash bag.
Bookmarks I read loads, and am always looking for bookmarks to keep my place or mark crafts/projects I want to try, so these would be great.
Needle book/organiser.
Pin cushions.
I adore the work of Dick Bruna (especially Miffy) so some little bags or household items with Miffy would be really wonderful.

Cat toys (Paul loves the really small amurugumi I make, and always steals them).

Quilted  or patchwork place mats or table runner or mats for dishes when on the dining table (a bit like a large place mat or pot holder).

Love quilted pot holders, so a few of these would be most appreciated.

Apron for when I am in the garden, with a large pocket or two on the front..

Placemat for Pauls food bowls.

Bicone beads crystal, red or black.
Hot fix crystals not rhinestones, any colour (ss 10 or bigger).

I sketch ideas and notes etc, so always have a small sketch pad, pen, pencils etc in my bag.  If I could have some way of organising them, or a folder or something that would be wonderful.  The pads are always small; A5 is massive by my standards for a handbag sketch pad.

Cotton DK for crochet afghans and toys I make.  Am working on an afghan in 100% cotton DK at the moment in cream, denim blue (or similar), dark and navy blue.

Small pieces of fabric (mixed fibres are OK)  for some quilts Im collecting for blues, purples, green, any colour really as only as theyre not really luminous or acid.  They neednt be big, about 4 inches square is plenty big.
Thanks A2K

Love old prints and fabric depicting  insects, animals, anatomy, architecture.  Any examples of these would be great.

I love old crochet and clothes patterns.  I collect 1970s  craft manuals.
Any old crochet or craft patterns (even photocopied ones if you have favourites youd like to share)

I claim spectrumsparksie for a crocheted cowl!

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

Hey everyone!  I'm ninteen years old, I live in Wyoming and I love crocheting, painting, jewelry, and makeup.  My favorite colors are pretty much any bright, neon colors.  I love pink and purple together, and bright green, blue, and yellow are great.  Rainbows, stripes, and polka dots make me happy!  I also like bright colors paired with black.  And I really like peace signs, pentacles, hearts, and stars.

Crafted Items
Handspun wool yarn, dyed or undyed.  I LOVE bright, funky yarn!  Please enough yarn to make something with.  I LOVE yarn like these: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=298437.msg3403181#msg3403181

A crochet hook case that looks something like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=156736.0
but I only need one row of pockets for my hooks and I would prefer it to be in a fabric that has stripes or polka dots and either rainbow colors, bright colors, or black and white.

A knitted or crocheted felted purse in rainbow colors.  Preferably stripes.

A purse like the 5th one on this page : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=242375.0
or like this : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=301054.0
But I really want a rainbow bag or something with stripes or polka dots..and I would LOVE lots of pockets inside.

A knitted hat with earflaps that turn into a scarf like this : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302941.0
I would love it in black, gray, or white and I want the scarf to be really long.

Knitted arm warmers like these : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=44961.0
I would love them in colors similar to the ones in the picture.  (I have really skinny arms.  I can give measurements.)

A rainbow guitar pick bracelet like this : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32177.0
My wrist is 6.5 inches.

A Tree of Life pendant necklace!  (I'd love if I could wear it at different lengths)  I want it to be silver with purple stones likes this : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302309.0
If you want to get creative and make a rectangular one like this :  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303382.0 that would be awesome too!

Button bracelet like any of these : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303430.0  My wrist is 6.5 inches.

Blown glass necklace pendants or beads.  I love swirly ones!

Steampunk style jewelry like this : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=300563.0
I really like the butterflies and the star, but I want a rose necklace really badly.

A painted box with The Tower on top : http://janetboyer.com/Fantastical_Tarot_4.jpg
It can be more of your own style, but I'd like it to be really close to the picture.

Wooden crochet hooks in any size, or any crochet hooks at all for that matter.

Silver and gold wire to use for jewelry in all different sizes.

Old watches to tear apart.

Natural fiber yarns.  I like bright colors or self striping yarns.

Any bright colored, multi colored yarns that aren't acrylic or something that I can get at Walmart.  I love self striping yarns.  There is one yarn in particular that I've seen a lot on craftster, but I've never been able to get ahold of it.  It's self striping sock yarn and I think it's called Noro.

Unique necklace pendants or beads.

I love quirky animals/objects/anything, stripes, spirals. I love recycled craftiness, using found objects and materials and using it for a totally new purpose.

I claim sheepblue for a birdie mobile Smiley

This is my first claim this round.

I am an 18 year old university student studying bioarchaeological anthropology (yay for just finishing first year!) who lives in Southern Ontario, Canada. I just started working full time at a chocolate store, like on Saturday. I am currently obsessed with poppet making and in turn sewing (though I am just a beginner and would love stuff (ie. fabric to get me going). I am in love with vampires (obviously), monsters, aliens, robots, bats and so forth. I pretty much love any colour but red and I am not so hot on huge amount of black (unless in the case of bats), though my favourite colour is royal purple (I googled it, it exists).

Don't forget to check out my wist for inspiration: http://www.wists.com/averyg, also I have included links with alot of my wishes for inspiration! Smiley

Anything inspired by my Wist! (There is over a hundred things you can craft) http://www.wists.com/averyg

Supplies: (I am totally okay with an all supplies package and as of right now, supplies would be most useful to me, seeing as I have lots of free time due to being done school)

-15mm safety eyes for poppeting! (I would love any cool colours, greys, greens, purples, blues, etc.) I can't get these anywhere in Canada either... Darn US for hoarding all of the best crafting supplies!

-metal shank buttons for jointing poppets

I claim averyg for some twilighty/wisty inspired goodness!

This is my 1st claim, 0 sent, 0 recieved.

My name is Melanie.  I am a 27 year old SAHM of 3 children so clutter comes with the territory.  I prefer to receive things that have a use over purely decorative things.  Items to help with organization are always welcome!   I love reading, sewing, and crafting.  I live on a farm in Iowa.   I have 2 cats who think they own the place and my husband has a few hundred fish (he breeds them and sells them).  I love traveling, but hate the driving involved.  If you are crafting for me or my family, please keep items G-rated.no scary skulls, profanity, or other potentially offensive items.  We are a smoke free family, and prefer to not receive items from a smoking home (smokey smells give me breathing troubles).  There are no other allergy issues.  This list was made at the beginning of winter, so of course, I would prefer that winter items be the last to be chosen.


*I love jewelry, dangly earrings, necklaces on the smaller length side, bracelets like them to have a grown up look to them.  If that needs clarifyingjust refer to my wists.

*Knitted or crocheted hats, preferably charcoal, oatmeal, or black colors (something that will go with anything) There is a picture of one in my wists, it has a bit of a brim on it,  but it shows a kid size, I would like an adult sized

*knitted or crocheted socks, preferably charcoal,oatmeal, black, burgundy or hunter green colors.  Wear a size 9 US.  Would love them to come to mid-calf length.

*resin jewelry check out my wists for some ideasdont have to be exactly like what is pictured there.

*reusable shopping bags that are patterned after the plastic ones. 

*stenciled/bleached/or other styles of decorated t-shirts keep them G-rated as I have small kiddos.  Some theme ideas.. Love House MD, NCIS, CSI, SURVIVOR, BECOMING JANE, PRIDE & PREJUDICE, and craftster themed stuff  Oh I wear a size small.  The following pertains to CLOTHING ONLYIm not a fan of pastels, browns, blues, oranges, yellows, or neons.  I do like, burgundies, hunter greens, purples, black,white or heather gray is just fine, and darker redsnot the bright reds

EDIT: since we are getting into the summer season, the brighter colors are just fine.

*A combination crochet hook and knitting needle roll

*Fabric placematsfor a  setting of 6  (wists)  Coordinating napkins would be nice too (my dining room walls are brown, so chocolate colors, or colors the go nicely with brown would be great.)

*anything from my wists  www.wists.com/stitch81  All my "I really want this" stuff is here

*hand painted pictures for my wallslove cherry blossums.., anything Thomas Kinkade-like.  Husband is a huge Boston Red sox fan (our bedroom is decorated in Boston Red Soxlol)

*Some sort of organizer that attaches to the back of a car seat to hold coloring books, crayons, pencils etc, for our summer vacation trips

*aprons full-style (I already have a valentines theme one)

*table runner type thing that I will use for the top of my craft cabinetsize preference is 18 inches x 4 ft. No dangles though, the cats will attack them! Lol.  This is in my dining room so chocolate colors would be good.

Craft Supplies
*Embroidery thread (white)-I make handbound books so go through a lot of it)

*paper-8.5 x 11 white I make handbound journals, so go through a lot of paper

*zippers black or white 8 or 14 inches long. (not the invisible kind, and not the chunky kind..just the regular ones)

*small game type pieces for some I-Spy bags that I want to makethere is an example in my wist

*elastic-the thinner width kind

*d-rings (1 inch size silver)

*resin molds-, maybe some bangle bracelet molds?  Cant find them where I live.  Or maybe some of the circular earring molds I already have the molds for small teardrop, rectangle, and square shapes

*stuff to add to the resincolorings, tiny bitsetc. 


*chocolate is always welcome! Lol

*whatever you want to throw indont have anything specific

If you have anything you that would love to make for me, but I dont have it listedfeel free!  I love swapping because it gives me the opportunity to receive things that I cant make myself, and also to enjoy the different styles of the people who are crafting for me!  All I ask is that items be kept g-rated!  Thanks! And if you are the one choosing meThank you sooooo much!!!

Hi!  Im addicted to knitting, though I love many other crafts as well!  A Michigan (USA) native, I am enamored of watery landscapes and northern hardwood forests.  My deepest wish is to live on a lake or river.  I love snow and wintery landscapes, cool colors and corny humor.  I love superheroes and mourn the fact that Im fat and 50 superhero material beyond repair.  ☺  I wist.
