I claim sorbetsurprise for a stencilled tshirt and an eye-mask

This is my 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 I'm allergic to cat hair.

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

Big wishes in BOLT


Sewing Machine Cover

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)

Amigurumi key ring (cookie monster, sheep or monkey)

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)

Simple Blank Notecards (which I could use for any occasion, linocut, stamped or embellished)

Christmas Cards (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)

Kanzashi flowers

Placemats (a set of 4 would be great, either appliqud or embroidered with flowers, trees, stripes or dots, brown, teal and/or purple)

Cloth Napkins (a set of 4 embroidered with eating related quotations would be fantastic. We've got a white table so black or grey napkins would be perfect. PM for more details like font or German quotations)

Wisty surprise

Beads (poly clay, glass, wooden)
Roving (hand-dyed would be really nice)
Fabric (Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, Michael Miller 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
Rubber stamp carving kit
Buttons to cover up with fabric (big ones)

Crafting books or magazines
Sewing magazines

Thanks whoever claims me!

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

I am going to claim Ewulotta for a sewing machine cover and a surprise or two Smiley

4th claim this round, 0 sent, 1 pending, 2 received

My name is Claire, I live in New Jersey, I'm a vegetarian, I do yoga, I LOVE animals (especially cats), zombies and skulls, cupcakes, 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 love learning new crafts but recently I've been on a crocheting-sewing-jewelry-ATC kick.

BIG wishes BOLD


- Vintagey halloween decorations (wee! its almost halloween!!!) pumpkins, skulls, anything... I am a huge halloween freak.
- Hand-dipped candles or any homemade candles that smell like cinnamon/pumpkin, christmas, or any food smell Cheesy Beeswax candles or soy candles a plus!
- Placemats: Anything naturey (greens, browns with trees or plants) or bright and cheerful (solid colors  or large patterns preferred over small prints)
- Fabric napkins: Same as above Smiley
- Folded magazine/paper bowls or containers with lids- tute here as well as some others on the boards: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=71395.0
- Coiled rope/fabric bowls:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=292234
- 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:
- T-shirt/tank/hoodie with a bleached design (examples on my wist!) maybe a bicycle? that would be awesome or even a zombie!
- A large, wide bag/purse for the fall (wider rather than deeper, does that make sense??) in Fall colors like orange, green, and brown
- **big obnoxious wish** 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) You could even alter an existing hoodie ... i <3 upcycling!
- Embellished/altered shoes! "converse" sneakers or flats size 5.5 - 6 in women's (US) Like these! (i love the color too) http://www.wists.com/claire313/4d55402816403fb67c7e0d1d85b291e1?offset=20
- 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'm totally cool with upcycled mugs & bowls big enough to hold plants!
- Decorated picture frames (buttons, collaged, random whimsy, etc!)
- A stuffed bunny with LOOOOONG ears (ami, plush, fabric, anything)
- Anything Vespa or bicycle related (stencil, t-shirt, bag, anything!!)
- Painted cork-board... maybe something with trees/birds
- Again, made them for others but never for myself: a sewing machine cover for Penelope (my Singer)
- A jewelry holder - could be a metal stand, picture frame, or a wooden case- anything to help me organize! I would LOVE something for all of my bracelets, especially!
- Its that time again kids...LEGWARMERS!!! http://www.wists.com/claire313/70a8d8ed4fffd22b6a5bbfc701ea8dc5?offset=60
** i'd love a pair in cream/brown (banga sent me awesome black ones)
- Knitted/crocheted slouchy hat in olive green or burnt orange
- Fabric buckets for storage (any size)
- Coasters! in fun colors/patterns
- Art for my blank walls  
- Yarn Ball wreath

Supplies: (thanks to everyone who has sent/is sending me supplies)

- I'd love to try to learn embroidery (the right way, not how i've been doing it haha) so maybe an embroidery starter kit? I like those sublime stitching patterns I've seen... directions would be great, too!
- Metal rings I could use to make belts with (does that make sense? just plain metal rings I can sew into fabric belts..)
- beads - any size, color
- Cool fabric - I just started getting into sewing so my supplies are rather limited (thanks everyone!!)
- Sewing supplies that I don't realize I need (interfacing, etc) (thanks again everybody!)

Anything you can think of that might relate to the lists above would be super too ... or anything off my wist!!


Thanks to whoever picks me!  Swaps are so fun   Cheesy

** I have gotten so many awesome things in these swaps - I ALWAYS get compliments on your amazing creations...keep up the great work, guys!**

Yay! My first claim has been received! So...

I claim claire313 for a cute vase, some special tea goodies, tea, a picture frame, and some local Abe Lincoln goodness from the heart of IL.  -It was hard to choose, I'd love to craft tons of your wishes for you!

4th claim, 2 in transist, 1 received

Im Becca and Im a stay at home mamma to my two kiddos, 3 and almost 1. I live in central Illinois, USA. Most of my wishes would be Christmas gifts for family. Most are crafts Im not sure I can do well myself.  Look forward to granting some wishes!

BIG WISH (oh please oh please!): A stuffed crocodile made from fabric or crocheted. Pretty long, between 1 and 3 feet. I love this one- http://www.wists.com/beccas_song/fb349ec3e33816ea1f368f5a411b7b02?offset=20    Cute, NOT scary. For my one year old sons pirate themed room. ***If it's easier and cheaper, you can send it unstuffed and I'll stuff and close it myself! I have lots of polyfill.

A hanging acorn lamp like this one- http://www.wists.com/beccas_song/755fefb4b893d57e9276fb988b7dd555?offset=0   Seriously, its not as hard as it first appears. Ill probably be making one if no one crafts it for me. But Id love someone to save me the trouble Doesnt have to be big. The brown one is my favorite.

Hand puppets- animals (not dogs- we have several already), PEOPLE, storybook characters, etc.  These are for a 3 year old. We have a lovely puppet theatre but very few puppets! These are cute: http://www.wists.com/beccas_song/2e637566fe40b532e424ebab1ea944b8?offset=20 my daughter loves hers! THANK YOU!!

Costumes or props for a dress-up kit- super hero cape, royal cape, moustache, sword, crown, shield, wand, pretty much any costume pieces for imaginative role playing!

A felted elephant like this. It could be pretty small. Would be a decoration, not a toy. http://www.wists.com/beccas_song/ac8af0a7089440cc9d0cd142612f00dc?offset=0

Fabric storage boxes like these http://www.wists.com/beccas_song/4121a9c21c69834c230b60658176edf7?offset=40 in greens and browns or reds and greens.

Big fluffy tutu for a little girl size 3T. Maybe one with a ribbon to tie it around the waist or elastic so she could wear it for several years.

Fairy doll- A sweet/innocent doll for a three year old to go with a woodland/fairy/peter pan themed room. I love this one- http://www.wists.com/beccas_song/3ebee73dbb0c90a37f6d3a95b762f757?offset=80

Bird mobile- like craftewoman makes. Soooo cute! I <3 your projects craftewoman!! http://www.wists.com/beccas_song/fbc04d0a0dc08b464a25832d78eb6960?offset=0

Hobbes doll- from Calvin and Hobbes. Ive seen one on craftster somewhere, but cant find it now. It was Hobbes as everyone else sees him- the stuffed animal. Not as Calvin sees him. Does that make sense?

Arrested Development gear- So, I dont watch this, but my brother is obsessed. Id love to give him something show related for Christmas. He has one T-shirt, but pretty much anything related to the weirdness of the show that he can hang in his office, stick on a shelf, wear, or use.

Sly Stallone doll- I would LOVE to get a doll that looks like Rocky! My hubby is a huge Stallone fan, and hed get a kick out of a doll that he could share with our son. (Preferably Rocky would be ready to box, but not be bloodied yet!)

Set of play silks- my daughter would love these!

Dinosaur Play mat- like this one: http://www.wists.com/beccas_song/cae01f23dd7efce73217d3360c13ef65?offset=0

Peter Pan art for the kid's room (not the cartoon Peter Pan)- see my wist for lots of painted signs, etc. This is my favorite quote: http://www.wists.com/beccas_song/0bc9f9d60d6ae515bd65b5bb2fad4189?offset=20

Felt board characters. We have a board with basic shapes and colors, but would love some faces w/ parts, fairy tales, cars and trucks, or things like that. These are cute, but more basic is great too. http://www.wists.com/beccas_song/d3922be26c2729e980ff030e30081c02?offset=0

Tree of life pendant in silver w/ red or brown beads Oh my goodness I LOVE it! THANK YOU!!!

Little wire bird's nest pendant or pin. Love this one! http://www.wists.com/beccas_song/f4cc95174cf550554cf94e87cc73f661?offset=80 SO cute!! THANK YOU!!!

Wallet, basket, or little purse woven from measuring tapes  http://www.wists.com/beccas_song/8bbda4e03c252285840fe1841d96d0ce?offset=100

Super fine glitter set- any and all colors! Half used is fine.

A bunch (like 200?) of butterflies punched from several size punches and all types and colors of paper OR butterfly punches in different sizes/designs

One or more fake pumpkins- the hollow foam kind you can carve

FALL/Autumn scrapbook paper pack (half used is great!)

Fimo or Sculpy Clay, any colors, any amounts (half used is great!)

Kinder eggs!!
Any special chocolates or candies I can use for stocking stuffers
Cute bento egg mold- Im not into making bentos, but my kids would like the shaped eggs!

Thank you for choosing me! I'm having so much fun with this swap and have gotten some lovely things. Hope everyone likes what I've sent too!

I claim beccas_song for Felt board characters.

5th Claim, 2 Outstanding 0 sent 3 received

My name is Lissa and I live in Colorado USA.  I am a stay at home mom to three of the worlds brightest futures who also love to get mail.  There is a ton of info about them and myself in my profile.  We try to be as gentle to the planet as we can be and I hope to have a small garden going next year.  I enjoy all things crafty and creative and secretly (okay, not so secretly) wish that I was a Stepford Wife with my brain still intact.  I love the 50s and love staying home, cooking, baking,  and cleaning on most days.  I am also obsessed with turtles and the color pink.  We do have smoke allergies in my house and they are rather severe so please dont claim me for items that can absorb smoke if you do smoke.  We really appreciate it.  There is nothing worse than getting a really cool handmade gift in the mail and having to toss it out cause my son and husband cant breathe around it. 

Thank you to whoever claims me!!
