I'm going to claim 1boy1girl1kitty2 for a supply package-o-fun. Maybe some fabric, some bernat yarn, some beads - that sort of thing. It'll be a little bit of a surprise if I don't give it ALL away now.  Wink

First claim this round. 0 sent / 0 received

About Me

Greetings everyone! 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) or earth tones (like greens/browns together). 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 robe like this one. I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*new* *big wish -- A reading pillow. I think this is SO COOL and I read constantly, so how awesome is this??

*new* -- Something made from the JOEL DEWBERRY'S AVIARY ALMOND FABRIC. (Stuff like this wristlet or these potholders or this craft apron or this card holder etc. Pillows, aprons, anything! I am just in love with this fabric!

*new* -- A keyboard wrist support like this Can be in any fabric/colors you think I'd like. (I need it for work where I don't have an ergonomic keyboard like I do at home.)

*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!!

 -- A cell phone wristlet like this. I love the colors and the shape/size of this one. (I have a Samsung r450 Messager for size reference. Though mine is metallic red.)

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


*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.)


*big wish* -- A cool fitted tee or fitted tank top! I wear a US size 4 or typically a size small or medium and I love greens, blues, purples, greys and browns for shirt colors. I pretty much live in baby doll/fitted tees. See my shirt wists for inspiration. (Thanks to everyone's who's made ones for me. I LOVE them all so much I want to add more to my collection. It's been great fun wearing my custom shirts!)

*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.

*new* -- Dessert-scented body spray. I use and love the "Beach Baby Perfume" from Coconut Hut. I can't wear normal perfumes because I can only wear things that smell like you can eat it or I get a migraine. I love desserts and fruit scents. (Scent Wishlist here for help/ideas.) But NO floral and NO musk at all - not even a drop! - or it'll be unwearable for me.

  -- 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 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.

 -- 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.

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

 -- 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
*big wish* *new* -- Artistic Wire brand wire in 24 gauge. Just like this! Especially needing brown and non-tarnish silver. This is my new, all-time favorite wire and I can't find any locally. (I also use 16 gauge as well but it's slightly easier to find than 24 gauge.)

*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.)

 -- 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.

-- 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 claim zombiecazz for ... beanie hats for my guys (I'm totally in a hat making mood lately).  

This is my first claim this round.  I'm in Canada and I'll go get my list.

Crafted Stuff
(examples of most of these things can be found on my wist)

* BIGGEST WISH!!  Body pillow cases in blues and greens - patterns or solids, I can provide dimensions. -- thanks ariaya
* HUGE WISH!!  Dog seat cover for my Jeep, any colour that goes with beige.  Large dogs, so sturdy fabric is necessary.
* Black & white art for my walls - photography, sketches, charcoals (love), embroidery, anything.
* Bath poufs knitted/crocheted.  White or blue cotton preferably please.
* I broke my magnifying compact and I still havent replaced it, and I thought someone might want to make me a decorated one??  Yes/no??   Must be magnifying, I am old and blind.
* Embroidered tea towels in fall colours - nature themes, food themes, plants, nothing with a face please (unless it naturally includes one).  
* Soft eye mask that you put in the freezer - corn would be awesome, rice smells a little funny to me.
* Light (colour and weight) head scarves.
* Scented sachets for my closet (hanging) and my drawers (not-hanging).  I'm not a huge fan of the traditional lavender scent, so something else less floral would be fabulous.
* A fabric business card holder that snaps shut, in earthy colours please.  

* I have a wist.  Its growing every day and I would love anything from or inspired by it!

(I live far away from any and all craft stores, supplies are like gold to me, an all-supply package would be wonderful)  

* Black and white patterned scrapbook paper, not all the same, full sized sheets to put on my walls.
* Yarn I do not recognize the concept of too much yarn, it is impossible.  Fancy fabulous yarn is wonderful.  Handspun is divine.  Nice acrylic is fine too, worsted weight, I use it for everything including scrapghans, so scraps are fine too.  Baby yarn that isn't pink (I have enough pink) is wonderful.  Theres no such thing as too much cotton (especially bright colours and more especially red, apparently we're only allowed to buy it around Christmas in Canada).  I've fallen in love with felting, so wool is fabulous, especially in blues and greens (for a kitty bed).  Id also love to try fancy types that I cant get here recycled, corn, soy, bamboo, hemp, wool blends, etc.  Especially bamboo.  I have a project in mind for my mom that requires 4x80g of a bamboo yarn.  A bright or jewel tone colour would be fantastic.  I hate buying online, I always get the colour wrong.  This being said, I do not recognize novelty yarn (including the evil boucle) as actual yarn.  No need to send any of that.  
* Crochet hooks - metal with bamboo or Softouch handles any size (especially G) or an S hook.
* Bright blue and bright green fabric, solids or patterns.  Its for a truly patchwork quilt so smallish pieces are fine.  
* Scraps (no matter how small, seriously 1/2 cm square is big enough) of felt, any colours.
* July/August 2008 Crochet Today! magazine.  Something went wrong with my subscription and they skipped that month.  Back issue magazine shipping to Canada is ridiculously expensive.   Anybody done with theirs?
* Afghan patterns, especially the newer best of booklets that many yarn companies have.  The fancier, the better.
* Yarn bobbins.
* Embroidery hoops - all sizes, preferably paintable.
* Large to giant glass beads and/or seed beads, any colour, actually a bag of bead soup would be wonderful.
* Black paint markers - I can't paint but I'm an excellent colourer-inner.
* Tunisian crochet "kit", Id love to learn but have no hooks or directions.
* Freezer Paper (a how-to-stencil using freezer paper tute would be awesome too, but not absolutely necessary).
* Small frames (3x5" ish) wood not plastic please.  I need 12 but you don't have to send that many and they don't have to match.
* Paint stir sticks.  
* Small pieces of softwood, I've been playing around with some pendant carving.  


* I never say no to sugarless gum or favourite recipes (especially for baking).  
* Maldon sea salt.  I can't find it here, my grocery store won't order it and I am craving pretzels like crazy.
* Other foodie extras, I LOVE to bake.
* Surprise me!  I like useful things as opposed to purely decorative.  Storage ideas are particularly appreciated.  

About Me

Hi, Im Allison, a 30-whatever year this is (39 now, I think) year old hermit from the wilds of Ontario.  Seriously, I have more deer and bears visit than people, and Im okay with that.  I am a jeans and t-shirt kind of chick who is completely ready for the apocalypse and would be happy to share her rutabagas and pemmican making skills with the people of Craftster.  I have two large dogs and three cats that think they are dogs.  My primary craft is crochet though Im attempting to work on my beading, glass, sewing, embroidery and knitting skills.   However, I have the attention span of a gnat, 47 different jobs and a 24 hour day is way too short.

I love nature and animals, music and books.  I like crafting for babies but would sooner chew off my own arm than have one.  I dont have a favourite colour though I do believe that yellow is best used sparingly and bright teal is a tool of the devil.  I refuse to acknowledge the existence of neons.   Every time I mention blue or green in my list, I am thinking of brighter, clearer colours as opposed to the navy, forest, khaki ones - think sky blue, apple green, leaf green, light turquoise, etc.  Im allergic to most metals and dont wear much jewelry.  I don't have a sweet tooth but I'm addicted to coffee, gum and potato chips.  I never use a sentence when I can use an entire paragraph and getting a package in the mail is enough to prompt me to gleeful, dorktastically bad dancing.  

Thanks in advance to whoever claims me, let me know if I stall.

I claim sunspotted for a body pillow case and some supplies

I have 0 claimed, 0 sent, 0 received.
A bit about me:  I'm a professional in the video gaming industry, currently located in the US.  My husband calls me a craft-a-holic Smiley  Lately I'm into fiber crafts of all types.  I'm also making lunches for myself now, and have gotten into the bento box craze.
My tastes run to the more practical.  I love bright colors and bold patterns, and always like adding a bit of a femine touch to my stuff.  No frills or lace please, but pink is totally cool Smiley   I encourage re-use and recycling, but please send something you would like to get yourself.  Nothing gross or bloody please .. or *too* far out there.
I'm a big gamer and work in the video gaming industry.   Game-related items are totally encouraged Smiley  I play table top D&D, Everquest II, Free Realms, and Star Wars Galaxies currently.  Other themes of interest are Harry Potter, dragon flies, teddy bears, and computers.  My current crafts are spinning, weaving, knitting, crochet, and soap & toiletry making.
NOTE:  I am allergic to smoke and Lavendar.  Also please ensure that any items are free of pet hair and dander as my husband is allergic to them and I'd rather not bring them into the house.

hello! i claim ariaya for a reusable shopping bag and a knitting needle/crochet hook roll

3rd claim this round, 0 sent, 0 received, 2 pending (but will be mailed tomorrow!)

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!
- A Tree of Life pendant for my sister!
- peacock feather headband (I think Banga made one for somebody last round... it was gorgeous!)
- T-shirt/tank with: The Shins (see link below!), a teacup, or one that says "Make tea not war" http://www.theshins.com/ <-- LOVE the design of their album, Wincing the Night Away (the black/cream design)
- 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:

- 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!)
- A painted vase for my flowers - doesn't have to be a big one
- Flower pots! I started growing bamboo and aloe and would love little pots/jars to put them in

I claim Claire313 for a Wisty Surprise! (which I am so excited to make!!)  Grin

List in a moment...

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

My name is Rachel and I live in Denver, Colorado. I'm a full-time college student who is studying Psychology and Philosophy. It's been ages since I've swapped, so I'm very excited to join in again!

I like naturey and pretty patterns. I like a lot of black and white as well as neutral colors. My only non-favorite colors are yellow and anything neon. Small scale prints on fabric are the majority of what I love and use. Birds, trees and branches are becoming a big theme in my house. My kitchen is all pears. I'm a little random.  Wink

Here's my list!


* A screened or stenciled tee-shirt or hoodie. Any bird/tree theme would be cute, or even something clever to do with psychology or philosophy would be fun! I have a few things I like on my Wists, to give you some ideas. I wear a size Lrg.

* Shoes! Or anything that can cover my feet. Knit/Crochet slippers or sock would be fabulous. I've also seem some awesome re-vamped shoes and would love to sport something so unique and creative!

* Journals/Notebooks with lined and/or blank pages. I'm starting school next week and would love some fun notebooks to use for class. I'd love some new stationary too. Really anything you could make for me that would be useful for school.

* A lunch bag! With my long crazy days at school, I'm going to be eating on the run, so a re-usable lunch bag will really come in handy. Little re-usable snack bags and such would be great too!

* Some fun art for my walls. I have a ton of things on my wists to give you ideas of what I like.  Smiley

* Dangly Earrings. I usually wear earrings everyday and love them a bit long.
I love stuff like these:

* Handmade sugar scrub or any other bath goodies!

* A vase of some sort. Something with a woody feel to match my little shelf set up.

* Some pretty and classic looking decorate hair pins or fun accessories for my hair.

* A charm bracelet of some kind.

* Anything from my wists!


* Fabric - Cotton prints, wool, woolfelt, corduroy or any upholstery fabric.

* Handspun yarn! mmmmm

* Buttons! I would love to have more random buttons to add to my collection.

* Zippers of all sizes.


Stickers! I like fun and interesting stickers to decorate random things with.

I'm with Claire on tea. I love tea, so anything will make me happy!

Any special sweets and treats unique to your area.

Anything you think I'd like!

 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Thanks a bunch to whoever picks me!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I claim seaofstars for a stencilled tshirt

1st claim this round, 0 sent, 0 received

My name is Eva and Im from Germany. Im a 26-year old trainee teacher at secondary school. In my free time I work with kids in church. Thats why I dabble in many different crafts to find new ideas for the kids. But I really enjoy felting, stencilling and sewing. I like natural and bright colours (green, brown, violet, teal) and natural materials like wool or wood. Unfortunately Im allergic to cat hair.

My wishlist (check out my wists for more inspiration: http://www.wists.com/Ewulotta)

Handmade soap (especially with sheep or goat milk)
Body scrubs
Hand-knitted socks (mustard yellow would be a nice colour, striped would be perfect)
Hand-knitted hat (for my sister, a black angora one with small beads or like this one http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18680839&ref=cat3_gallery_18)
Crocheted floral scarf (teal or purple)
Oilcloth lunchbag (with polka dots or stripes, for my long days at school)
Jewellery-/ earring holder (a framed one that would hold earrings and necklaces, like this one http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27093634)
Wire wrapped ring (I really adore those ones I have seen, but Im not talented enough)
Simple Blank Notecards (which I could use for any occasion, linocut, stamped or embellished)
Custom Rubber Stamps (with flowers or birdies and my name)
Decorated paper clips
Ballet flats (sewn or crocheted like these https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=274990.0 or http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27701665)
Decorated headbands (trim, either fabric or embellished with decent crochet flowers)
Placemats (a set of 4 would be great, either appliqud or embroidered with flowers, trees, stripes or dots, brown, teal and/or purple)
Reading pillow (or rather a reading pillow case to keep shipping costs low)
Wisty surprise

Beads (poly clay, glass, wooden)
Roving (hand-dyed would be really nice)
Fabric (Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, or any Free Spirit, those are difficult to find in Germany)
Freezer Paper (I cant get freezer paper here in Germany and its so convenient for stencilling)
Scrapbooking Paper

Crafting books or magazines
Sewing magazines

Thanks whoever claims me!
