I claim spectrumsparksie for a stuffie uterus! I'm seriously excited to make this! ^_^ Plus some jewellery supplies and bits and pieces.
This is my first claim!

About me: I'm in England-land, love all colours really, love pretty retro/vintage/antique things, patterned fabrics, etc. Veggie. Can't handle smell of smoke too well.

Thanks for looking!

My Wishes:

Crafted:

-*Big Wish!*  Cloth pads!  These would be my first ones. I just got a mooncup, so would love a couple of pantyliner/lite ones as day backup, and/or hardcore overnight ones for use sans mooncup - ones with waterproofing/PUL layer would be ace!

-Nuno-felted anything (scarf?) in whites or soft tones that flatter the lovely delicate look it has ^_^

-Any lovely handspun/hand-dyed/whatever else yarn or fiber <3

-awesome embellished headbands/headdress things - there's a few on my wists to give ideas!

-Pretty retro/Victoriany/Gothy/whatever corset-style waist-cincher, for 32" waist

-Steampunky anything really - like the rest of the world, I'm a bit in love with Steampunk lately <3

-cute matryoshka doll inspired things

-Subtle, classy erotic flower sculpture/jewellery/etc (see http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5519645  and  http://www.xiaohuiwang.com/gallery.php?bk=wp&gy=photography/erotic_flowers&eye=eroticflowers.jpg  for inspiration!), or a secret-vulva-purse (ie. a normal pretty-fabric purse with folds of soft pink fabric inside that only I will see! ^_^)

-I have mega-dry skin, so if anyone makes home-made skincare stuff and wants to send some extra-moisturising, shea-butter/cocoa-butter/beswax/whatever else type stuff, that'd be rad!

-any surprises inspired by my wists are very welcome! ^_^


Craft Supplies:

-homemade mineral makeup kit/ingredients (as in here: http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Mineral-Makeup/  )

-Inkjet-on-fabric printing kit  (ingredients for soaking solution, freezer paper, etc)

-Steampunky findings - broken watches/watch innards, old keys, old lace, etc etc

-chunky yarn (can be hard to find!) - or any drool-worthy yarn really...mmm, yarn....


(PS also, feel free to throw in a teabag/few leaves of your favourite tea if you're a tea person....hint hint! <3 )

I claim geckochan for some cloth pads.

This is my 2nd claim this round, 0 sent, 0 received.

I am 26 years old and I am sahm to my 21 mth old daughter, Abigail. I live in Ontario, Canada with my daughter and my husband. 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 have 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
* 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 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. 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
* 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 or animal . 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

* 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 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:

* Chocolate - Whatchamacalit Bar (willy wonka) 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 AbbyRose for a box of supplies (will include fabric, but also more after I figure out what I want to send her!  no craft store...argh!).

this my fifth claim, 3 sent, 2 received, 1 in transit.

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 red 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 (ravens, peacocks, and cranes especially), 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

*knitted handwarmers (no idea what measurements are needed herePM meI do have fairly small hands though for my height, wrist size 6 inches) -thanks, oneredboot!

*Cute knitted, felted, or amigurumi toys for Aria (we like odd toys best, she has a collection of odd stuffed animals)

*crocheted play food  -Thank you leighi123 more is always fine, pm me to find out what we have

*knitted cuffs maybe with a skull design in it

Sewn crafts

*a cute pin cushion

*a 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)

*Japanese knot bag in a color that pops like red or turquoise

*lounge pants in cotton or fleece (size M 8-10, I wear M in Target brands if that helps)

*felt food for Aria like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=222947.0 - thank you, musiclady!

*Dolls for Aria (We would love dolls from various ethnic backgroundsAfrican American, Asian, Latino, etcthe world is a colorful place so should her play world be) Teachingjonah made Aria a sweet African American girl doll and Aria loves her!

*Stuffies (again, we like odd, whimsical, fun...and most of all cuddly!)

*Hooded baby/toddler towels

*clothing for Aria's groovy girls (pm me for size info if you're not sure)

*Embellished bath towels

Misc or multi-media crafts

*hoodie for me in size M/L with cool appliqu or screen printI have a thing about red hoodies...just saying.  (I like my hoodie to fit loose so probably best to stay away from the juniors aisle, I have been blessed with ample hips, breasts, and tummy all courtesy of genes and motherhood)

*appliqud or screen printed tees, tunics, or dresses for Aria (she weighs about 23 lbs and is 30 inches tall so roughly 18 month, maybe 24 months if you want to give her something to grow into)

*jewelry that is edgy (I love the look of steampunk) like this http://images.etsy.com/all_images/0/0a1/fbd/il_fullxfull.19832902.jpg or bohemian like this http://www.shreejigems.com/full-images/676417.jpg.  (Oh I am not fond of chokersI hate the feelingI would probably be fine though it if its made entirely of fabric and has give)  Thanks Atsuko! Steampunk is fine, please check out the gallery to see what Atsuko made me though! : )

*I also love wide cuffs (leather or metal or even fabric) like this
http://www.handmadefinds.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/cuff.jpg or this http://www.timelyjewels.com/cb140full.JPG or this http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2091/1517196417_30011118ed.jpg
(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) oneredboot got me a fantastic embroidered blue felt cuff from my wist...but more is welcome...I LOVE cuffs, its a sickness, i tell ya!

*one of those wall frame jewelry holders...(i have a few in my wist for reference)

*pretty Victorian or bohemian hair clips, bobby pins, hair combs, etc...for me

*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)

*Pretty smelling soap (see above under candles for scent preferences)

*Artwork for my home (trees, birds, dandelions, interesting, not of this world landscapes, my daughterthese are all good subjects, PM if you want a photo of my daughter or see my profile for her totsites.com pagetons of photos there.)

*An accordion file organizer (you know like the cardboard kinds) decorated all pretty and awaiting my many and disorganized patterns that are laying about the house

SUPPLIES
(PsSt...I dont mind used supplies in the least as long as there is enough to still play around with and have a bit of fun!)

*Vinyl in a variety of colors, scraps and strips are fine as long as theyre not teeny tiny

*Bright and colorful buttons (mostly round but a few fun shapes are great too, dont have to be matching)

*beads (glass, semi-precious, swarvoski) any size but seed bead prefer at least 8mm, would love 22mm and larger (i have a lot in blue already, but would love more green or red beads!)

*ultra-fine, fine, and thick sharpies in black and fun colors

*Old skeleton keys, small interesting metal gears and doodads

*jewelry findings in gunmetal, brass, and copper (chains, clasps, eye pins, and head pins especially!!)

*100% white cotton (at least 8 by 10)

*Cold water dyes in variety of colors (brand doesnt matter)

*Blocks of Beeswax and Paraffin waxes

EXTRAS

*old maps especially of cities outside USA

I'd like to claim mcook72677 for a pair of knitted ankle socks.

This is my first of 3 claims allowed, 0 sent, 0 received.

A little about me:  I live in North Carolina with my husband, giant dog and three cats.  By day, I'm the manager of a busy locally-owned business and by night, a person who is content to curl up at home with my knitting and a good movie (kung fu or Jane Austen, please).   My favorite color is green but browns and mustard yellows are close seconds.  I enjoy a good glass of wine at the end of the day, arugula and goat cheese salads and driving with my air conditioning on and all the windows open.  

Crafts

Embroidered Handkerchiefs - particularly freeform designs and as this is likely to get tossed into a purse, any colors are fine

Hand thrown coffee mugs Absolutely adore these: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10760703

Embroidered kitchen towels.

new!Organic cotton, hemp or linen handknit (or crocheted) washcloths.

Handmade Beeswax or Soy Candles. Any scent but strong florals.

Cat bed for my kittens. Prefer browns or dark colors that wont show cat hair too easily.

Fabric placemats--maybe with the center quilted?

PJs/Yoga Pants in natural fabrics. Im a tiny lady. Smiley

Tree-themed pillowcases.

Small stained glass/suncatchers for my deck door.

Hand-dipped incense

Mustard colored knit hat--perhaps something along the lines of Felicity or Le Slouch

Eclectic/found object windchime.

Small hand-painted picture frames. I have some great trees by phizzychick and no way to display them.

Handwarmers for my husband - in black or brown

Handmade birdfeeders or bird houses.

Hand-dyed/hand-painted yarn.  Prefer worsted weights.

A set of four hand-thrown appetizer plates or shallow bowls (they can be small-ish) in greens or browns.

Handspun yarn.

Vintage pottery -- in browns, greens or whites.

Men's stenciled t-shirt. Bike or motorcycle design for my husband. Size small/medium.

Loose handknit cowl.

Handmade, wooden shawl pin

Handwarmers/wristwarmers -- in off-white/creme or brown, maybe, but I'd prefer something tweedy?

Manly checkbook cover in darker colors--brown, black, navy blue. Maybe canvas? Something durable and simple.

Slippers for the chilly evenings!

Polymer clay buttons.

Worsted weight, 100% wool yarns.

Hemp/linen/organic cotton yarns -- anything earth friendly, recycled, unusual fibers, etc.

Bare/Natural Wool for dyeing

100% wool sweaters.

Tweed/donegal yarns.

I claim mcook72677 for a slouchy red hat!

This is my 3rd claim, 0 sent, 0 in transit, 2 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).  I'm also wearing a lot of orange this season--bright, clear oranges (more red than yellow). 

Here's my wishlist.  Thank you!

CRAFTS

simple drawstring backpack for a little girl toddler, like this one from lotta jansdotter  -- with either the letter "G" or the letter "C" embroidered / stenciled / cut-out / etc.

crocheted o-ring necklace in spring green

felt patches or canvas bag embroidered with images from the sublime stitching's "chinese acrobats" patterns -- my nieces have learned how to spin plates (!) and i would love to give them bags for keeping their supplies

knitting tote - bsonlytoots made me a lovely one and now I'm addicted!

knitting organizer


stenciled placemats in natural colors like browns, blues, greens, orange/rust/red

altered art clock made from an altoids tin

recycled gears clock I am seriously in love with this clock!

summer shawl or wide scarf in summer-weight yarns or fabric--perhaps in clear orange, white, or green?

large fabric bucket like this one or any of the burlap buckets at mayamade
 
fabric shower cap

refashioned crochet-embellished tank

re-styled pintuck t-shirt

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). 

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

modern laminated-fabric placemats

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

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

pocket recycled-paper journal for my upcoming trip to italy

homemade pinhole camera



SUPPLIES
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!

IKEA fabrics in modern or botanical designs--I live several hours from an Ikea but LOVE their fabrics!


stitch magazine
- spring 2009

wool felt

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!

etching stuff for etching glass!

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

Thanks so much!

I'd like to claim oneredboot for a bunch of various supplies from her list!


This is the second of 3 claims allowed, 0 sent, 0 received.

A little about me:  I live in North Carolina with my husband, giant dog and three cats.  By day, I'm the manager of a busy locally-owned business and by night, a person who is content to curl up at home with my knitting and a good movie (kung fu or Jane Austen, please).   My favorite color is green but browns and mustard yellows are close seconds.  I enjoy a good glass of wine at the end of the day, arugula and goat cheese salads and driving with my air conditioning on and all the windows open. 

Crafts

Hand thrown coffee mugs Absolutely adore these: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10760703

Embroidered kitchen towels.

new!Organic cotton, hemp or linen handknit (or crocheted) washcloths.

Handmade birdfeeders or bird houses.

Hand-dyed/hand-painted yarn.  Prefer worsted weights.

A set of four hand-thrown appetizer plates or shallow bowls (they can be small-ish) in greens or browns.

Handspun yarn.

Men's stenciled t-shirt. Bike or motorcycle design for my husband. Size small/medium.

Loose handknit cowl.

Handmade, wooden shawl pin

Polymer clay buttons.

Artisan cheese/bread board made out of wood -- anything like this or =tags&includes[]=title]this
