I claim atsuko for natural stone chips for tree of life pendants.

this my fourth claim, 3 sent, 2 received, 1 in transit. (did i do that right?  gets confusing!)  

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!!!


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)

*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

*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!

*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)

*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

(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


*old maps especially of cities outside USA
*transportation tickets, tokens, what have you especially if from cities outside USA
*Candy or food (that travels well) unique to your region (Im fairly adventurous)

Thank you!!!

I claim musiclady for some reusable sandwich bags

This is my 5th claim this round, 1 outstanding, 2 in transit, 2 recieved

My name is Melanie.  I am a 28 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..

I really, really would like this wish fullfilled...
***A Project bag.  Something to hold my WIP crochet/knitting projects.  I would love for it to have a few slots on the inside to hold my knitting needles/crochet hooks and small pair of scissors, and maybe a small snap pocket to hold some stitch markers, a pocket either on the inside or outside to hold my pattern instructions (8 1/2 x 11 size pages), and for it to have a wide bottom (I'm thinking like the bottoms on the re-usuable shopping bags) so it is roomy enough for my yarn skeins.  I'll love you forever if you can fullfill this wish.  I have summer vacations coming up and would love this to take along...car trips are always sooooooo long.

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

*stenciled or bleached 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  Thank you Sarahj2001 (from the june 2009 b-day swap)

*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

*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

I'm going to claim stitch81 for some jewelry surprises, possibly inspired by her wists. (In other words, let's see what I can come up with!) Grin

Claim #2 - 0 outstanding / 1 in transit / 0 received

About Me

Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 32 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. My favorite colors are jewel tones like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber. I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.) My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy. I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together. My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes. I love to read, I enjoy photography and I love all things Disney!

I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.



*big wish -- A purse in this kind of style. I LOVE, LOVE LOVE this bag. The mix of the cord and the cable...? LOVE. (Could use an existing sweater for the knit part as well if you don't knit. I think that'd work just fine as well.)

*big wish* -- A tote like this one. I love and covet everything about it from the colors, fabric to the pattern.

*big wish* -- A Slanket! (Snuggie) I almost bought an actual "snuggie" but the fabric was icky. (It was like thin felt.) I want soft, awesome microfiber fleece stuff, you know? Something long enough to cover my toes as well.

*big wish* -- A robe like this one. I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*new* -- A cell/ipod touch cozy/wristlet like this. I love the colors and the shape/size of this one.

*new* -- A little zip wallet like this.

*new* -- A Disney Pin Trading Wallet like these that MissDisney made. I especially like the red/yellow one since it's very Mickey colored, or other Disney printed ones. (My initial is "M") This would be great for carrying around my pins to trade at the parks!!

*new* -- Some Fabric buckets like this or like this to store and tote around craft supplies.

*new* - A wallet. Something slim but with a lot of card slots and an id slot. Something in a aqua or robin's egg blue would be great to match my new purse. (Brown/aqua would be good too.) There's several examples I like here on my wist.

 -- A migraine therapy kit like this. I have had migraines for more than 15 years and this kind of thing DOES help.

 -- A leaf embroidered wallet like this.


*big wish* -- This scarf in these type of earthy, natural colors. (If it were in a mix of teal blue and chocolate brown that would work too.) I think this is one of the most perfect things ever. I don't really need scarves as a rule because I live in Florida, but I'd find reasons to wear one like this!

 -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft (no wool please because it itches me) I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. (HUGE bonus if it's argyle pattern. I don't know why but I love argyle.)


*new* -- A gem tree like this (or really, like any of the ones she makes because they're all lovely!)

*new* -- A gem tree in a glass ball in emerald and silver like this. Emerald is my birthstone.

*new*  -- Hand carved rubber stamps Especially cute/quirky things based on my likes/wist. I like natural things (like trees, flowers, birds, etc.) too. Really, I'm just crap at making them myself and there are so many cute ones out there.

  -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, glass mosaic item, etc. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself. I have a wall of sliding glass doors and a balcony to show things off.

 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or a bowl or a tea mug or whatever. Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (A couple things I've wisted for inspiration.)

 -- Anything with a phoenix on it. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items here as inspiration.

 -- A leather tree ipod touch case like this style. It's SO pretty. (I love the brown leather.)

 -- Something glass work like a vase or something. Blown or torch or whatever. A cool medium I don't know how to work with at all. This is really pretty for example.

 -- Things for my apartment in Teal Blue and Chocolate Brown. I love these colors together. And I'd love something in them for the home. A quilt or throw; art; kitchen accessories; pillows; curtains, etc., etc.

 -- Disney stuff. Be it characters (like Mickey, Figment, Belle, Mike & Sulley, etc.) or movies (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Monster's Inc., Lady and the Tramp, etc.) or the parks (I live near WDW but I've never been to Disneyland), or historical stuff (books on Walt or the making of the parks, etc.), or things I can use/take to/wear about any of the above, I LOVE DISNEY. So by all means, get creative! Grin

 -- Something (surprise me!) incorporating owls, penguins, bats, cats or red foxes. They're my favorite animals. Note: At this point, I probably have enough owl stuffies/amis so something besides that please.

 -- Fused glass or glass (microscope) slide pendants you think I'd like. (Here are some wisted inspiration items as examples.)

 -- A ribbon organizer. Doesn't have to be this fabric. It's more the idea and the style of storage that I like here. Chocolate/Teal color combo would be great as would fun/cute fabric or prints (like owls or something.)

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists or my amazon wishlist, or the colors I like and see what you can make that you think I'd like.

Craft Supplies
*new* -- Rubber stamp pads and/or rubber stamp markers. I've gotten a pretty cool collection of stamps but I have no ink pads for them!

 -- Starter resin kit/supplies (resin, molds, etc.)

 -- Starter rubber stamp carving stuff. (Maybe a kit or items like tools, the rubber to carve into, how-to/instructions, etc.)

 -- Gemstones and gemstone beads. In every shape, size and color. Donuts, cabs, chips - anything! I LOVE working with gemstones and I can never, ever have enough.

 -- Lampwork beads.

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such. Also, I love Swarovski crystal, unique clasps or toggles, and jewelry wire in 16 gauge and 24 gauge in any color.

-- Tea! Especially fruity ones.

 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.

 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)

 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)

 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)

Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

I'm going to claim Phoenixfiredesigns for something Disney and/or bicycles (I'm from the Netherlands bicycle country #1). And some extras depending on what I can fit in the package.

Claim #1 - 0 outstanding /  in transit / 0 received

I'm Susan, a 18 year old student from the Netherlands.
I'm starting my college study after summer break. I'll be studying Costume and set-design. I also will be moving out to my own little house.
My clothing-style is kinda, bohemian-punk (if that even exists) I love hats, bright colors, plaid fabrics, purple and deep pink combined with black. My parents tell me to grow up but I love cute childlike things especially Disneys Mulan, Enchanted, Alice in wonderland and Studio Ghiblis spirited away and Howls moving castle. I'm a true geek, I play D&D in three different parties, and I'm the DM for 1 of them. I also play Larp at a very frequent level and work at fair's and festivals.

My wish list in random order; bold wishes are the big ones.

- Huge wish: A patchwork shirt, skirt or dress, Hippy style that I can wear to summer gatherings. I got some examples:
http://wists.com/scaramouche/94dc9317d1a729de69ca637781ac1969?offset=20 http://wists.com/scaramouche/e5d41e3e6e70bb71f9dd1dc3e0d7e151?offset=20 there's a few more examples on my wist.

- The knitted tie from the Punkknits book; in black with red or hot pink or purple accents. I can supply the pattern for you.

- I play Larp which is a really expensive hobby because of all the costumes. Therefore I would love to have costume jewelry in all shapes and sizes. Especially nature based (for my medieval scouting character) and steampunk (for my sci-fi  character.) I can supply photo's of the costumes so you have an idea what to make.

- Bottle cap earrings-with a tutorial on how to make them myself. I love images from: Buffy the vampire slayer, Firefly/serenity, Nightmare before Christmas, studio Ghibli movies and musical theatre especially we will rock you and wicked.

- A bag for my waterbottle that I can hang on my belt when I'm working festivals. Something kind of historical/fantasy looking would be great. I can provide the ecaxt measurements easily. I love this quiver style one: http://wists.com/e7a8e34f84d8e812a21a12d2fca36ff3?q=bottle%20holder&offset=40

- A purse/bag to hang on my belt when I'm working. Again something fantasy/historical would be awesome.

- Fingerless gloves in brown (sewn, knitted or crochet)

- Fingerless gloves. In black with purple or hot pink accents (for larp)

- A t-shirt dedicated to my current D&D character which I love. I can supply you with all the needed info, including some quotes.

- Spats with a leather look (steampunk style) for Larp. Something along the lines of this.

- Accessories that are gothic/steampunk style. I dont like skulls and big pointy studs.

- Cool artistic notebooks for college. Or a dummy (big a4 sized sketchbook with blank pages) with a cool cover.

- Dice (RPG) jewelry

- A steampunk necklace

- Something from my wist: http://www.wists.com/scaramouche

t-shirt wishes: Im a size m in unfitted shirts and an L in fitted ones.
- A D&D related shirt with the letters DM on the front and on the back Dungeon Mistress.
- A t-shirts that says. Oh; I see Orcs......Let's walk towards them.
- a t-shirt to show of my proud Buffy the vampire slayer fandom. Look for ideas here: http://www.cafepress.com/buy/buffy I really love a What would Buffy do? Tee.
- A t-shirt to show off my Joss Whedon fandom. It would have Whedonist on one side and the other side would say: Always be yourself; unless you suck!
- A tee that has the following Buffy quote on it: I laugh in the face of danger; then I hide until it goes away

Supply wishes.
- Gears, gizmo's and other doohdahs for steampunk style stuff.
- Fabric scraps anything bigger then 5X5 inches.
- Ribbons and lace I can use in hairpieces; preferably blues, browns, black and white.
- Shrinky dinks, I realy wanna learn to work with those so supplies would be much loved
- Plaid fabrics in all colors.
- Buckles and buttons for several projects.
- A fruits book (Japanese fashion) previously loved is of course ok)
- Traditional Japanese style fabrics.
- Patterns especially costume ones.
- I collect badges so any type style or size are greatly appreciated.
