Organizers: TwiztidBlood and sunspotted

*IMPORTANT PM INFO*: When sending PMs, please label them as OWS 48 with one of the following tags:
Package sent
Package received

So when sending the questionnaire, the subject will read OWS 48 Approval. When notifying us about sending and receiving packages, add the corresponding tag. If you just have a general question, label it as that. This will keep things organized for us!
When sending a sent/received PM, please include the 'Send by' date so my craziness will stay at a minimum.

Please bookmark this thread and/or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.


How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!

Try to imagine a chain.  The first link is the first person whose wish list is on page 1 (Person A) - that will be the craftster member who was the very last wish list from Ongoing Wish Swap 47.

Now, we want to put another link in the chain.  People will read that list and see if there is something they want to/can make from the list.

Someone (Person B) will claim Person A for some item on their wish list.  They post a reply to the thread that says I claim Person A for [item].  This is my X claim (however many times they have picked someone for example, "this is my fourth wish, with one sent, and three received, (meaning that this is the fourth claim they've made, one is in transit to it's destination, and three of the items have been received by the people they previously claimed).  Also add your location, and any preferences or aversions I live in Wisconsin USA, I am a vegetarian, and I am allergic to wool.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!  This means you need to post who you are claiming and for what, how many claims you have made, including how many in transit and how many received, and your location/preferences/aversions.

Then comes the fun part!  After the introduction, Person B is the last link in the chain, and they post their wish list!!!  YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF SIX.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.

(Please have your list ready, this swap moves very quickly!  Please include your country at the start of your wish list). Person B will also PM Person A to get her address so they can mail the item when it is finished.  

Along comes Person C, who claims Person B for something on their list and the chain is built, link by link.  (If Person C wanted to make Person B a purse AND a stuffie, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  Then they post their list, and so on.

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.

After you have made your claim, you need to PM that person for their address.

Friends of Craftster are allowed 3 wishes at one time, others are allowed 2 wishes.  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish until your craft is received for this month.  Do not choose over your given limit.
 If you already have one claim that will be sent out late, please don't claim again until that one is sent out.

Become a Friend of Craftster!  Go here: https://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php

If you are at your limit of wishes, you can choose again once one of your partners receives, NOT when you send.

***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***

Let's keep the quality high here. I don't want to receive PMs with people concerned over the lack of quality of their items.  Please, just work your hardest to keep the bar high on the quality of items here!  Don't choose just for the sake of choosing; choose to make someone else a really AWESOME wish!

Now if the thread gets in a rut for a few days/hours, the person who made the last wish should add to their list if they can think of anything else, until someone decides to craft for them. Please make sure this is not you!

Unsure of where to find wish ideas?  Try the previous ongoing wish swap galleries or any other gallery on craftster.  Look through your fellow crafters wist lists.

( the medium can be a couple small items etc as long as it adds up to a medium )
( A medium item equals two hours of crafting time or 20$ worth of store bought items )

Please be communicative if you are having any issues. If you communicate you still need to send your item in a timely manner.  Communication does not mean you can send as late as you want.  After one week past the deadline you will have negative feedback.  This is only temporary as it will be changed back once you fulfill your obligation for late item(s).  Do not choose to craft an item if you do not think you can meet these deadlines.

I will be giving feedback in the following way:
-  great swapper: for those who follow all the rules
-  good/poor communication:  where applicable
-  sent late/early: where applicable
-  no dc number: failed to comply with the rule about using a delivery confirmation number for packages within your own country
- didn't post pictures: failed to post pictures of what they received without an adequate explanation to their partner
- did not follow item amount rule

Previous Swap Rounds:
If you are confused in any way by how this works, please look at some previous rounds:


TwiztidBlood - Will be your organizer, in charge of your claims, your sends and your receives, and your approval.
sunspotted - Will be co-organizer, in charge of the discussion thread.

I claim kitschkween for custom stamps and a book from her Amazon wishlist.

This is my first claim this round. 0 sent, 0 received.

My name is Sarah, and I'm a high school English teacher from Illinois. I'm happily married for going on two years, and we have two dogs, one a dachshund mix and the other a mutt. I love reading, running, biking, and crafting. I embroider, sew, crochet, and make jewelry. I'm very eclectic, but looking at my wists should give you an idea of what I like. I love surprises and am addicted to crafting supplies.

Tiny books—like this http://www.flickr.com/photos/ruthbleakley/1732654459/in/set-72157601172694399/
Hand-knitted socks
Steampunk jewelry

Graphic tee’s with daschunds, bikes, giraffes (see my wists for examples)
Placemats—my kitchen is candy apple green and decorated with pears
Embroidered tea-towels (to match kitchen)
Wall art—quilted, painted, mixed-media (my living room will be blue, moss green and dark brown—think trees and birds)
throw pillows for my couch
A large tote to carry my grading and school books in (needs lots of pockets)
Leg warmers in black or cream color
Candles—I love lilacs, vanilla, and clean scents.
A hot pad (the kind with rice inside)
Journal with plain paper
Things to do with books/reading--see my wists for ideas
Anything from my wists—http://wists.com/goodtimegirl

Resin kit
Polymer clay kit
Beads, pendants, clasps, etc. for making jewelry
The base wire for tree of life pendants
Super soft yarn (enough for an open-work shawl—400 g. or so?)
Fabric with interesting prints—see wists for ideas
Shrink dink stuffs

The Crochet Stitch Bible
The Embroidery Stitch Bible
Not Your Mama’s Crochet

Anything book-related

I'd like to claim goodtimegirl for some candles and supplies.

This my first claim this round. 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. 


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

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 or fingering 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.

Handmade, wooden shawl pin

new!wooden or plastic bangle bracelets

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

hi! I claim macnatalie for a knitting needle organizer and an ipod cozy!

1st claim this round, 0 sent, 0 received, 0 pending

My name is Claire, I'm 25 and I live in New Jersey. I work at an engineering publishing company... I'm a vegetarian, I do yoga, LOVE animals (especially cats), and anything bohemian/indie. My favorite colors are blue, orange, teal and green. No allergies but can't stand the feel of velvet, and chocolate totally grosses me out.

I definitely have craft-ADD - i love learning new crafts but recently I've been on a crocheting-sewing-jewelry-ATC kick.

Anything else you would like to know about me, PM away!

BIG wishes BOLD


- BIG funky jewelry (vintage, indie, steampunk) <--thanks PFD and riario!

- peacock feather headband (I think Banga made one for somebody last round... it was gorgeous!)

- T-shirt/tank with my fave bands (The Shins, Metallica, Radiohead - see links below!) or a teacup

http://www.metallica.com/ <--*note: I am more into 'older Metallica" so any album art prior to St. Anger would be preferred  if you have questions, definitely feel free to PM me

http://www.theshins.com/ <-- LOVE the design of their album, Wincing the Night Away (the black/cream design)


- Thread catcher for my sewing machine

- Embroidered/painted pillow case(s) (maybe a day of the dead skull? or i remember seeing one with an octopus tentacle... so cool!)

*EDIT ON THE ABOVE DRESS: If you have that kind of skirt laying around (the hippie one), I could always make my own dress out of it! Could count as "supplies" hehe

- Yoga pants

- Aladdin pants - i bought a pair when i was in Lisbon last summer and can't seem to find them anywhere else! I would LOVE a pair in olive green or black:


- A large, wide bag/purse (wider rather than deeper, does that make sense?? haha PM me if you have questions...)

- Something firefighter related for my boy... he's been a volunteer for almost 10 years  

- BUNNY HOODIE! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=298030.0 I'm sure i'm way too old for this, but whatever, its cute! cotton/jersey would be perfect (i don't like velour)

- A little backpack/bag that I can throw on when riding around on my bike (sturdier the better, in case i fall off my bike or something haha!)

- Altered tees or tanks like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=106867.msg1016302#msg1016302 or this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10284568 (yup, just copied that link right from banga haha)

- A vest! made out of jersey material would be awesome ... any color, but i wear a lot of browns, greens, blues

- wristlet/wallet to hold my phone, lip balm, camera and keys (the essentials!) PM me for sizing, my phone and camera are pretty small
- Bicycle stamp/stencil or anything bicycle related

- Along the same lines: Vespa stamp/stencil http://www.vespa.com/

- Something Day of the Dead! (i can't help it, you guys do awesome DotD stuff!)
*I have this awesome bag that reminds me of sugar skulls and I would totally love a DotD skull pin to put on it (polymer clay, embroidered, anything!)

*I got an amazing pillow cover from aeronberry and now my obsession with DotD is full-blown...

- Wide belt in an "earthy" color (olive green, brown, grey, blue, teal...) <-- thanks JanelleJ!

- A totoro! (ami, stuffie, painting) for my sister

- Happy Buddha (ami, stuffie, painting, etc)

- Tarot cards, loteria

- Anything I could use for my ATCs... paper, stamps, glitter, etc
