I claim phoenixfiredesigns for a waterbottle holder with whatever pocket

This is my 5th claim overall, 3 sent, 2 recieved, 1 in transit still

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. 


Check out my wists.. I have a bunch of stuff there that i would LOVE to recieve

*resin jewelry check out my wists for some ideasdont have to be exactly like what is pictured there.  I really love the goldfish bowl themed one.

*I love jewelry, dangly earrings, necklaces on the smaller length side (18 inches is perfect) , bracelets (6.5 inches) like them to have a grown up look to them.  If that needs clarifyingjust refer to my wists.

*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.

*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, Pirates of the Caribbean, 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  I would REALLY REALLY love this wish fulfilled.  I can provide pics of my dining room if needed to give you an idea of the wall & furniture..

*anything from my wists  www.wists.com/stitch81

*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.

I also have 3 children, 2 girls who wears childrens size 8, and one boy who wears childrens size 4-5.  If you want to make something for them.. shirts, whatever.

Craft Supplies

*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

*resin molds for bangle bracelets.  Cant find them where I live. 

*stuff to add to the resincolorings, tiny bitsetc. 

*fun fur yarn for poppet hair.. any colors welcome



*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!!!

I claim PepsiTwist for Crochet bag(s) for produce. I love making these!

This is my fourth claim, two sent (third going out on Mon), one received.

My name is Janelle and I'm in Illinois, USA. I'm a stay-at-home mommy to two wonderful children. Izak is three, and Lailah was born this January. I am a lover of all crafts, so I'm super easy to please. My very favorite colors are chartreuse, gray, chocolate brown, deep aqua and green. I am allergic to cats, but crafts from homes that have a cat don't seem to really bother me. I'm not allergic to smoke, but I would rather things didn't smell of it. I adore octopi, keys, carrots, trees and umbrellas. Anything with any of those themes would be great. I'm always open to trying out new things, so feel free to de-stash on me if you wish. Thanks in advance for claiming me.

Anything from my wists. http://www.wists.com/JanelleJ
A T-shirt like this https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_05902.JPG for my son in 4/5. He really likes Plex (the yellow robot), but is a huge fan on the show so he will be super happy with any of these.
A fabric bucket
Re-usable swiffer pads
Crafty onesies for my little girl (size 3-6 mos) or crafty T-shirts for my little boy (4T or 4/5)
Hair accessories for my daughter. Clips, headbands, etc. I really like the kind that aren't baby/pastel colors that I could find anywhere. Funky is good.
Birds nest pendant
Any vintage inspired jewelry
Any Steampunk jewelry
Carrot, octopus, key, tree or umbrella themed surprise!
A crocheted or knitted hat with a brim for my son. He is three-years-old and generally wears size 4/5 in clothing. I can measure his head if you PM me.
Any personified fruits/veggies (kid friendly). I already have a pear, an orange and a lemon.
Anything to display in my African-themed living room (think African masks, woven baskets, wooden bowls with patterns carved in, original artwork, etc.)
Large bag made of some funky fabric
Nursing cover, also of funky fun fabric
Charms for charm bracelet
Anything Final Fantasy themed for my husband
Anything Thomas the Tank Engine themed for my son. His favorite train is Percy (green), but he likes them all. (can be toys or room decor because his room is decorated in Thomas stuff)
Crochet hook roll
An altered jewelry box
Russian nesting dolls made of any medium (felt, fabric, wood, etc.)
Any resin pendants. See my wists for examples of my "style"
An altered book journal
A boppy pillow cover for a girl
A CD holder book thing to hold DVDs and PS3 games
Diaper covers for my daughter 3-6 mos, 6-9 mos
knitted or crocheted legwarmers for my daughter
Any homemade soaps, lotions or other bath and body products. I love most all scents, especially citrus-y but not minty
An apron, full or waist. I think I want to start a collection of these.
Wall art for my bathroom. The colors in there are orange, sage green, chocolate and tan.
Scarves! I prefer sewn scarves over knitted/crocheted ones because I can knit or crochet them myself.


Any type of tools or molds(used is fine with me) to use in working with polymer clay
Polymer clay in any color, especially white or gray
Yarn (any color, weight, etc.) I can never ever ever have enough. My very favorite yarns are Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick and Vanna's Choice, but I love them all.
Any kind of beads. The funkier the better!
Any scrap papers, or various ATC making supplies. I actually have quite a bit of this thanks to sheepblue, but I could always use a little extra.
Safety eyes---any kind
Modge Podge!
Freezer paper
Fabric paint, markers or dye
Wire. Any color, and gauge, any amount. I'm really in need of larger gauge wire, but I use a lot of all kinds.
Vintage sewing patterns that I'll use to make ATCs
If someone could put together a beginners needle felting kit, that would AMAZE me

Thanks again to those who have already claimed me, and whoever claims me next!
