I claim aeronberry for a few wisty surprises.

this my first claim.  0 sent, 0 received.

My name is Robin and I live in Oregon.  I am married to Phil, a fantastic cook who spoils me with delicious meals.  We have a one year old daughter named Aria who is the most rambunctious and curious little child that I know.  I am a feminist who is trying to raise my daughter to be anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobicanything (surprises are nice) that supports these ideas will be greatly loved.

I am a wee bit eccentric when it comes to my likes and dislikes.  I am all over the board, I like whimsical, edgy, bohemian, steampunk, pretty, bold, soft, hardI wear a lot of black and grey, but Ive been cautiously branching out into the wondrous color wheel lately.  Heh.  I love fun color combinations like orange and turquoise.  I do not like neon or Easter egg pastel colors.  I prefer rich, deep jewel tones the best.  I like images of dandelions, squirrels, birds, leaves, and trees, but I also really like skulls (not cutesy ones just plain ole skulls or even a tad more colorful like the skulls of Da de los Muertos), anatomy, skeletons (especially of birds and other non-human creatures), and old locomotives.  You can check out my wist to get a better idea of what I like. 

Some of my wishes (BIG wishes in bold)Wisty surprises are absolutely welcome!!!

CRAFTS

Knitted crafts

Sewn crafts

*a cute thread catcher

*a wristlet in pretty but durable fabric (*sigh* I need something to hold my wallet, keys, phone, and lip glossIm tired of using whatever plastic grocery bag I can find)

(I could do without the spider web; I think this would look cute in jewel tone colors in a pretty print or even black with a skull; also I love all metals especially when its looks worn and old; wrist size is 6 inches)

*Candles, LOVE vanilla and baked goodies smells, also love lavender and lemongrass, the only smells not overly fond of are patchouli and super strong flowery scents.

*neat-o decorated coffee mugs, either hand sculpted or a plain ones embellished with one of those pens like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=284893.0;topicseen but maybe with more whimsical designs like birds, trees, dandelions and whatnot (I have only three coffee mugs at home2 of which have chips in themso sad)

I claim leighi123 for a stenciled shirt (maybe 2 depending on how involved it is)

This is my 2nd claim this round, 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. 

Crafts- I have these listed in order of most wanted..

*6 Placemats for my diningroom like these http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/c1d736178cb03dc3f1cebdbe5f26dcdf?offset=80

*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.

*stenciled t-shirts please no iron ons..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.  Please no neons.  Check my wists for other ideas

*scarf like this one http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/be1f456f3be8868544ef42fe4d945f4e?offset=20

*bedside organizer like this one http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/6da9f208c8a4679512550e2dd1a4ee9b?offset=20

*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

*I love jewelry, dangly earrings, necklaces on the smaller length side (18 inches is perfect) , bracelets (6.5 inches) like these
http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/39fe3342f03cd86882e193a738d8fe28?offset=40
http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/3c62ee3941ffddb96ce97ed62c86d304?offset=40
http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/b9cde11ffe01335bdcf84416e56b4b0b?offset=60
http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/978d2b1caecda83132e45b872095cf11?offset=60

*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.

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

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

*infinity dress in some summery type pattern/color (pm me for size)

*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.


Craft Supplies - again, most wished for are listed first

*Supplies for making tree of life pendants, especially the outer wire.

*recent summer dress patterns for around a size women's 6.  see my wists for style preferences

*jersey material for making some dresses, 3 yard minimum please

*would love a glass etching kit, or some supplies to get me started

*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-, the bangle bracelet molds.  Cant find them where I live. 

*stuff to add to the resincolorings, tiny bitsetc. 


Extras

*Love chocolate, mint, and peanutbutter candies (not all those together)

*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 spectrumsparksie for a spoiler package to include at least Bella's mittens!

This is my first claim this round. (1,0,0)

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.    

Enough about me:  

Crafted Items

fabric covered tacks

poly clay decorated tacks

pottery, especially small bowls or mugs

moc-a-socs like these: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=290914.200

Embroidered pillow cases in quiet colors for the master bedroom which is blue, guest bedroom is grass green (dh is daring with color) -- the bedspread in there is a quilt made with "eyeballs in the jungle" fabric

Pearl swirl pendant!

Placemats - woven, patchwork, quilted, felted!

potholders

lunch bag

Anything from my wist (unless it's marked as "received")!  http://www.wists.com/addicted2knitting

I claim A2K for a swirl pendant and potholders.

This is my first claim this round Smiley

I am 26 years old and I am sahm to my 20 mth old daughter, Abigail. I live in Ontario, Canada. My husband works in finance and is an avid golfer. But enough about him. I love to cook, sew and make jewellery. I also paint occasionally and am interested in trying resin pendants, knitting, and dying/spinning yarn. I live in a small town and we don't have a fabric store or a craft store so sending me a package with just supplies is fine with me! I was diagnosed last year with Candida so I'm now trying to "heal" myself with healthier lifestyle choices (food, exercise, massage, vitamins, etc) Also, my husband is allergic to cats and I'm sensitive to cigarette smoke so if you're home has either, please wash, febreeze or air out your items before shipping. Thanks!

Big wishes are bolded.

CRAFTS:

* Anything inspired by my wist http://www.wists.com/AbbyRose
* Homemade bath soaks or fizzy balls. I don’t like floral or musky smells. I love cucumber melon, peppermint, citrus, lavender and green tea therapy scents.
* Reusable Swiffer pads like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=165049.0 Colour doesn’t really matter as long as it’s two different colours.
* Funky Apron  in a style like this, the colours and style are great! - PM me for sizing  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_gallery_14&listing_id=21252139&ga_search_query=apron+fabric&ga_search_type=tag_title&ga_page=4&min=&max=&order=price_desc * Nightgown in one of these styles: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25691497&ref=sr_gallery_7&&ga_search_query=nightgown&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=13&order=price_desc&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title or this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=19063921&ref=sr_gallery_19&&ga_search_query=nightgown&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=14&order=price_desc&includes - PM me for sizing and colour preferences
*Paintbrush Roll Similar to a needle or hook roll but I’d like it to have interfacing to protect the bristles from bending. Needs to be larger like this one. I like this mishmash of fabric/colour choices and double-pockets. Not fond of the button closure though, ties would be better. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23670127
*Pencil Case like this one to keep my sketching supplies safe in my purse. Can also be made with fabric and pvc. Doesn’t have to be paper as long as inside and outside is covered with protective pvc.  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23878727&ref=sr_gallery_1&&ga_search_query=pencil+case+travel&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=2&order=price_desc&includes
* Stiff fabric baskets to be used for storage. I love the ones where you can fold the cuff up or down to make them shorter or taller. I’d prefer them to be rectangular. Crazy bold prints are preferred, patchwork is fun too. Examples: this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=19204627&ref=sr_gallery_1&&ga_search_query=storage+basket&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=12&order=price_asc&includes or this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=24862271
* Handmade earring display cards like these: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25251599&ref=sr_gallery_11&&ga_search_query=earring+display&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=price_asc&includes
* Recycled picture frame earring display Examples are http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23939740&ref=sr_gallery_18&&ga_search_query=earring+display&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=8&order=price_asc&includes , http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=17963278&ref=sr_gallery_17&&ga_search_query=earring+display&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=4&order=price_asc&includes  and http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25561384&ref=sr_gallery_21&&ga_search_query=earring+display&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=5&order=price_asc&includes Must be freestanding and I prefer there to be no backing and have wire mesh as the earring holder instead of lace.


SUPPLIES - An entire supply package would be fabulous!!
* Fabric Fun, vibrant, abstract prints are preferred, I’m not really into character prints though. I like Alexander Henry Boutique Collection, Joel Dewberry Aviary and pretty much anything Amy Butler or similar styles. Scraps are great just nothing smaller than 3” x 3” please.
* Lace trims - No burgundy please
* Mica powder in all the colours of the rainbow. Teal and silver would be my top choices.
* Dyes for dyeing wool yarn and roving. Aqua, red, orange, pink… Not koolaid please
* Dyes for plant fibres like bamboo and cotton. Aqua, orange, fuschia…
* Small craft drill.
* stainless steel or sterling silver ear wires (hooks, kidney or handmade)
* Pendant trays for resin pendants. Round, square or oval.
* Small trinkets and items to imbed in resin.
* Glass or acrylic beads can be simple or fun and funky! Mixture of colours, shapes and sizes.
* Plastic ring mandrel - used is fine!
* Wool yarn in bright fun colours
* Wool Felt or high quality acrylic felt - red, pink, yellow, orange, blue, green, white, beige, tan, black
*Embellishments to use on hairclips. Preferably no larger than ½”
* Coarse-Grind Powder, Fine-Grind Powder and Polishing Powder for my rock tumbler.

EXTRAS:

If you’re shipping from the States, I love the Whatchamacalit chocolate bar or regular chocolate (especially truffles)  I also love the light blue Orbit gum. Hubby adores Skittles and Nibs.

Healthy cook books or some of your own favourite healthy recipes. I do my best to avoid wheat, sugar, dairy and preservatives. Good thing I enjoy cooking because this makes eating out very difficult!

I claim redstar13 for some scrabble pillows from her wists

This is my 3rd claim this round, 1 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. 

Crafts- I have these listed in order of most wanted..

*6 Placemats & runner for my diningroom like these http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/c1d736178cb03dc3f1cebdbe5f26dcdf?offset=80thank you spectrumsparksie!!!!

*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.

*stenciled t-shirts please no iron ons..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.  Please no neons.  Check my wists for other ideas

*scarf like this one http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/be1f456f3be8868544ef42fe4d945f4e?offset=20

*bedside organizer like this one http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/6da9f208c8a4679512550e2dd1a4ee9b?offset=20

*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

*I love jewelry, dangly earrings, necklaces on the smaller length side (18 inches is perfect) , bracelets (6.5 inches) like these
http://www.wists.com/Stitch81/39fe3342f03cd86882e193a738d8fe28?offset=40

*recent summer dress patterns for around a size women's 6.  see my wists for style preferences

*jersey material for making some dresses, 3 yard minimum please

*would love a glass etching kit, or some supplies to get me started

*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-, the bangle bracelet molds.  Cant find them where I live. 

*stuff to add to the resincolorings, tiny bitsetc. 


Extras

*Love chocolate, mint, and peanutbutter candies (not all those together)

*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!!!
