I claim BabyCakes8510 for a wisty surprise!

First Claim this round.

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.



*new* And a VERY BIG WISH! -- A Cozy Winter Wrap like this thread. (She also has a tutorial here.) The embroidery shown on it is totally optional and totally not required. Most any color would be ok (just no red/orange/yellow/pinks please.) I am ALWAYS cold and would LOVE one of these!!

 -- A simple robe. I really like this style. Doesn''t have to be exactly like that but I like the Japanese/Asian/Cherry Blossom influence, but it could be other colors/patterns that I like as well. Doesn''t need to be form-fitting, can be a little roomy just not too oversized. (A little roomy is fine.) I''m generally a US size 4.

 -- A day tote. There''s not a thing I don't love about this one for example, but it could be in different fabrics of similar colors for example. It looks sturdy and says it has pockets and the shape is really lovely.

 -- A Weekender Type Bag. I really like this one which would be a lovely weekender bag since I don't own any luggage. (It has an almost Steampunk feel to me with the leather - which could totally be faux!) And of course, Amy Butler's pattern is neat but it wouldn't have to be in her fabric.

*new* -- Table Top Ironing Mat like THIS. I don't always have room to pull my full ironing board out but I usually have space on my counter or table. So this is brilliant!

*new* -- Ironing Board Cover (with padding) The covers cost as much as a new iron but mine is nasty, discolored and so flat that you iron the iron weave of the board's frame into your clothes. It''s a standard ironing board of normal length and size. Can be plain or simple fabric but must of course be durable and heat tolerant.

-- 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!

*big wish* -- Some throw pillow slip covers. I'd love to change up my throw pillows more often. What might be fun is to have some slip covers I could put over the existing pillows to mix things up now and then. I have two standard size, square pillows (I can measure for exact if you want) on my couch. My living room features a "sand" colored couch and dark "espresso" brown entertainment center with chrome accents. So browns and blues would be cool, but also like autumny colors, or earth tones or maybe even some seasonal ones. I don''t know. It just seems like it'd be fun to have an assortment to change it out now and then! I'm wisting some prints I like as examples HERE. (thanks, MommyTheMaid! I''d still be up for more to have ones to rotate out!)

 *new* -- A sewing machine cover. I do own one - this one specifically - but I'm still pretty terrible. I also don't use it a lot so a nice, pretty cover would be good to keep the cat hair and dust off it.


*HUGE wish* -- This "entrelac" style 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!

*big wish* -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft I''ve got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl''s sized large socks for reference. There are some wisted here for inspiration. thanks ifallthraindrops! I''d love many, many pairs though! Cheesy

 -- A cable knit bag. I really like cable knit and I think this bag is really cool.

 -- A lightweight/lacy shawl. (Like this example. I love the delicate lace of this. I'm always cold so something to cover my arts at dinner or in the movies would be great. Could be this or other colors. Something neutral probably best. Doesn't have to be this identical pattern, just this basic concept.


  -- Fitted Style Tee Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. (Since this time of year I might get to actually wear a longer sleeve!) Fitted, size small or US 4 equivalent. I have received a ton and I love them but I also live in fitted tees and more are always welcome. I have a bunch of styles I love wisted for inspiration. thank you to everyone who''s made one - I can''t get enough!

*new**big wish*  -- Hand-Dyed / "Shibori-Dyed" Fitted Tee Shirts Like above, short sleeve, 3/4 or long sleeve is fine so long as it''s fitted. I like styles like THESE in my wists. I especially love the flame style one but really like this type of look a lot. It''s different from the shirts I typically wear and I like that. (Please just no hippie/Grateful Dead rainbow style tie dye. Nothing against hippies but it''s just not my personal preference.)

*new*  -- Hand carved stamps. Neat things I can decorate packages or letters with. Trees are great, vines, penguins, a phoenix, owls, etc. Anything based on the stuff I like would be great!

*big wish*  -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, nightlight, 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 cereal bowl (I eat cereal every day!) or anything like that. Decorative or useful! Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (A couple things I''ve wisted for inspiration.)

*big wish* -- 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.)

 -- Home decor items that you think I'd like based on my wists, likes, etc. I love the chocolate brown/blue combo, my living room is browns, creams and touches of blue. I also have two kitties who would love things to play with/scratch/climb on, etc.

*new*  --Organizational items I have way too many dvd''s and not enough storage for them, I could use decorative storage in general, I have a ton of fabric that just sits in piles that need organizing, I have a lot of miscellaneous craft supplies with no place to put away (hole punches, scissors, sewing tools, pens, markers, paper, beads, wire, beading tools etc. etc. etc.) Help me wrangle my crafting mess!!

 -- Something with owls. I love owls, especially snowy and great horned owls.

 -- 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* *HUGE wish* -- Jewelry Presentation Displays I have one in black but I need a necklace one in WHITE for photographing my work. I could also use a necklace/earring combo and a bracelet hand. These are styles I like and could REALLY use:
 - Simple Necklace: Display, necklace, leatherette, white, 10x8 inches
 - Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, necklace/earring, frosted acrylic
 - Another Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, Venus figure, opaque white, 12 x 8-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches
 - Ring/Bracelet Display, acrylic, clear frosted, 7-1/4 x 4-1/2 x 3 inch hand

 *new* -- Watch Gears/Parts - cogs, gears, faces, etc. Any parts I can use in Steampunk jewelry.

*new* -- A sewing basket. You know, classic little box with a handle to store my growing collection of threads, notions, scissors, etc. Like this idea/ or this one. Doesn''t have to be that fabric or anything but that idea. Right now, all my stuff is just piled up in a mess on my desk.

*new* -- Ink Pads - You know, for rubber stamps? I had two and got four more in a swap but I could use many more colors. I have some blues right now but no black, red, orange, green, etc. The more the merrier!

  -- Mini Cake Pans. How cute are these? I do''t know that I *need* them per se, but they''re just so darn fun.

 -- Lampwork beads. Love. Wish I could make but I''m too scared of open flame. Cheesy

 -- 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. Also any 16 or 24 gauge wire is in any color is always useful.

-- 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 6iggle for something Giraffe related plus some supplies/extras.

This is my second claim this round Smiley

My name is Adelle and I am a 27 year old sahm to my 20 mth old daughter, Abigail. I live in Ontario, Canada. My husband works in sales and is an avid golfer. But enough about him. I love to cook, sew and make jewellery. I also paint occasionally and am interested in trying screen-printing, resin pendants 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! 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.


* 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.

*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.

* Handmade Note Cards
Hand stamped, decorated with ribbons or buttons… Unique and original designs. I’d love some with the rose from my logo on it: http://i868.photobucket.com/albums/ab246/AbbyRoseCreations/4372140584_813fe10823_o1.jpg
* Nightgown for my 2 ½ year old daughter. Size 3T in jersey or lightweight cotton.

SUPPLIES - An entire supply package would be fabulous!!
* Screen Printing Supplies like what is found in this kit: http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/eng/2164-AA.shtml , especially a frame
* 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.
* Stretch Lace - No burgundy please. In ½” or greater
* Mica powder in all the colours of the rainbow. Teal and silver would be my top choices.
* Dyes for plant fibres like bamboo and cotton. Aqua, orange, fuschia, chocolate, lime green
* Small craft drill.
* Resist for fabric painting. I’d prefer the water-soluble kind
* Pendant trays for resin pendants. Round, square or oval.
* Small trinkets and items to imbed in resin.
* Embellishments to use on hairclips. Preferably no larger than ½”
* Coarse-Grind Powder, Fine-Grind Powder and Polishing Powder for my rock tumbler.


If you’re shipping from the States, I love the Whatchamacalit chocolate bar 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 Pixieval for cloth napkins for the family!!

This is my first claim of 2, with 0 sent and 0 received.

I am a 24 year old Coloradan who moved to Texas (all USA) with my husband and our dog. We've been married just over a year, and are loving life! I'm really into frugal living, and trying to pinch pennies in every way that I can. I love to sew and am just learning knitting. I've started an afghan that's going to take me FOREVER.

My favorite colors are dark forrest green, and blues of any shade. I don't like pink. But in reality, I really enjoy everything colorful (even pink as long as it is not overpowering). I am not very "girly" and don't wear much jewelry. I love The Beatles, Survivor, the Amazing Race, and books of all shape and sizes. I definitely prefer functional items, as I hate to clean but am having success with the Flylady.net system which promotes cutting down on clutter. I love historical fiction novels, particularly by Philippa Gregory. I got a degree from Colorado State University in History Education, but taught middle school math for a couple years before I got married and moved to Texas. I love Mario video games, and played a whole lot of Zelda growing up. I also enjoy quilting, though I've only ever actually finished one. I love sharks! I think they're fascinating.


Kitchen wetbags like this - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=38793415&ref=sr_gallery_1&&ga_search_query=kitchen+wetbag&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&includes[ but with whatever fabric

HUGE WISH - Reusable Paper towels - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=334735.msg3875905#msg3875905

A weekender bag!!!!!!!

Reconned cute modest T-shirts (I'm a size medium after its reconned). I love this style: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=334188.20

A throw or lap quilt

The jewelry I do occasionally wear are dangly earrings, though they can't be huge or chunky or heavy

I'd like to have some tree pendants for every season of the year (I've got summer already). There are some examples on my wist of kinds that I like. I will buy the chain if you make the pendant. Again, I don't want it to be insanely huge. Phoenix's designs are the perfect size. No bigger than that.

Wool dryer balls!

A mail organizer to hang on the wall - check my wist for an example

Knitted/whatevered out of yarn sockies for my house that I can simply slip into. My feet are always cold. I'd like them to go up a little farther on the toes, but basically like these ones: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=32052674&ref=sr_list_2&&ga_search_query=knitted+house+socks&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title

A sewn case for circular knitting needles

Wisty surprises are always fun!

Fabrics of all varieties!!! I don't like goth or skulls. I love Alexander Henry fabrics (especially apples and pears) in general, and I can't get them around here!
Knitting needles - I've just started and only have sizes 5 and 6 and 10 (all circular)
Modern cross stitch projects/ideas/patterns/etc
Rotary cutter blades
I also have fun uses for fat quarters
Knitting magazines/how to-s/ideas
Kid-friendly fabrics (for quiltforkids.org since I don't have kids of my own)
Purse supplies such as magnetic closures and snaps
Pelon 809 Decor Bond interfacing! I use a ton of it

Peppermint patties
Chocolates (especially dark and white) are always good

My Wist

50 Projects in 2010: 9/50 with several big ones in progress!
« Reply #25 on: March 03, 2010 11:49:38 AM »

I claim JodiLynn85 for Knitted (probably, but possibly crocheted) slippers and probably some buttons.

This is my first claim for this round. : )

I am 19 and live in Fredericksburg, VA (USA) much of the year, where I go to school. My style is pretty haphazard--I never coordinate anything, so my decorating style is whatever I like, all cobbled together. I love bold prints and art deco and fun colors, but I'm not a fan of pink or orange. I love dark colors, like maroon and navy. I knit like a fiend (almost constantly) and also crochet, sew, spin, and dabble in paper craft. I really want to learn weaving, and soapmaking, just to add to my crafty repertoire. I have cats and a dog at home, but not at school, and they all stay out of my crafting supplies. I don't have any allergies. PM with any questions!


- **Big wish** A nice handbag. There are a couple of examples of my style on my wists. Something fairly plain in shape in a solid color or fun print. Fairly large (I carry everything with me), crossbody strap, lots of pockets.
- Weekender bag
-   Throw pillows (quilted, embroidered, knitted, whatever)
-   Zipper bags for storing random things (any size, really)
-   Hand-carved stamps. Pretty much anything as I have pretty much none.
-   Framed art for my boring dorm room (drawing, painting, embroidery... anything really.) Harry Potter, House, Grey's Anatomy, knitting, Futurama, Knitting, or Battlestar Galactica-themed would all be awesome, as well as various generic snark, hilarity, or pretty-ness. I have some favorite quotes too, so pm if you want more specifics. (This goes for pillows too)

I claim ifallthraindrops for "Something (pillow, zipper bag, shirt, almost anything) with Team Tyler's Van on it" and "framed wall art"

This if my 1st claim of two.

I live in Florida (USA) with my husband, two-year-old identical twin girls, and our seven indoor cats.

Here's my wishlist!

Random Things About Me You Can Run With

Jerry Orbach is one of my all-time favorite people.

I love all things New York, especially New York City. I want to live there so badly, but my husband says no. *pouts*

Left 4 Dead & Left 4 Dead 2 are my favorite video games. I literally play them every day.

I am completely infatuated with PyramidHead from Silent Hill.

I love me some Jean-Claude Van Damme

I play Guitar Hero and RockBand on expert.

I like the Baroness from G.I. Joe (The *real* one, not that crappy new movie one.)

I love anything and everything with polka dots. Black and pink are my absolute favorite, but I do *love* all the different color combinations too. Currently my crafting room is painted pink with black polka dots.

My bedroom is decorated in horror movie decor, so anything along those lines would be great.

I'm a mom of twin girls so anything that says "twin mom" or its variations is great too.

I collect Disney Princesses, Care Bears, Superheroes, Neopets, and Chuck Taylors.

I really hate "Twilight".

Our kitchen is decorated in cows and pigs.

Our living room is decorated in our favorite television shows and movies. Absolutely anything made from the following would be awesome, "How I Met Your Mother", "40 Year Old Virgin", "Knocked Up", "Supernatural", "Superbad", "The Princess Bride", "The Odd Couple" (movie, not tv show), "Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog", "24", "Bones", "FanBoys", "The Simpsons", "Serenity/Firefly", "The Office", "A Christmas Story", "The Golden Girls", "Shaun of the Dead", "Ghostbusters", "Hot Fuzz", "Saved By The Bell".

My three favorite characters on "Bones" are Dr. Lance Sweets, Hodgins, and Agent Booth.

I love the girlie looking skull with the bow.


*Biggest Wish of All* I want The Pink Nightmare for each of my kids. (http://z.hubpages.com/u/1895332_f260.jpg)

Blood spatter bedroom/bathroom decor (There's one I saw here on Craftster and will post a link as soon as I find it again.) **Already have the shower curtain - Thanks mrsbenjimadden**

Captain Hammer t-shirt.
- Captain Hammer logo
-Captain Hammer  Corporate Tool

In case of Zombies (Like these: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=304505.0, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=202668.0)

An Amigurumi Rabbid from Raving Rabbids video game.

Amigurumi Left 4 Dead characters.

T-Shirt with "I could totally make that" on it. (I say that all the time when I'm at the stores!)

An apron. (I really love this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=319728.0)

T-shirt or hoodie that says, "Vampires don't sparkle" (There's one that I need to find the link for.)

Comfy pajama pants.

Wonder Twin shirts for the kiddos.

Cute little hair bows for the kiddos.

Kitty food mat for their bowls. Something out of paw print/kitty material. I can send you measurements for how long/wide it needs to be.

Curtains for a few rooms in the house (Each room can be one claim) I will send measurements.
   - Black curtains for two windows in master bedroom.
   - Black w/ pink polka dot curtains for one window in craft room.
   - Disney princess curtains for one window in twins bedroom.
   - Care Bear curtains for one window in spare bedroom.
   - Cow print curtains for one window in kitchen.

Table cloth for kitchen table in cow print.
I love this pillow. (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=310871.0)


Shrinky-Dinks (I can't seem to find them around here.)
Spools of ribbon
Lobster Clasps (I can never seem to have enough)
Jewelry findings (I usually make things in silver but I need some in black)
Perler Beads
Necklace pendant of a yellow VW bug (older model)
Crafting Magazines/Books (I do a little bit of a lot in crafting.)
Baking Magazines/Books
Photo Storage Boxes (Right now I have them in black, white, and pink with black polka dots.)

Styrofoam wreaths and cones

Anything from my wist would also be awesome!

I claim StephanieGravatt for some supplies and creepy pillow   Grin

1st claim this round....

My name is Leigh-Ann, and I live in florida w/my parents, and my awesome son Levi who is 31months old.   My son and I both have bad smoke allergies, so please dont claim me if anything you send might have been exposed.  

Things I like: my son (duh), the beach/ocean, dolphins, bright colors, anything green/natural/organic/environmentally friendly, sewing, crafting, my dog, Montessori, things that smell good (like cotton candy, baby powder, anything tropical, coconut, mint, anything a little kid would like), up-cycled stuff, fabric, vegetarian things, carseats

Things I dont like: TV/movie characters, camouflage, pastel colors, and grandma things, anything non-vegetarian, lace, plastic, jewelry, guns/knives

Crafted stuff:
-            Fabric lables!  Simple is fine, there are a bunch of tutorials online, I just havent gotten around to making  them yet...just needs to say 'Roots and Wings'  OR 'The Little Guy Store'
-   sundresses or other summer clothes for me, size 0, or small.  Simple is fine!
-   Shirts or clothes for my son, 3T or bigger for shirts, 2T for bottoms (his waist is 18.5), no hanes or gerber brand please, but up-cycled is fine! .. .some ideas:

o   outfits to wear to gymnastics class would love gymnastic shirts (maybe a freezer paper stencil or appliqu w/gymnastics people on it), and comfy pants/shorts to run around in.
o   anything gender neutral, I really hate that all the boys shirts at the store have trucks/tools/dogs/fireman/superhero etc.  So anything thats NOT like that.  

-   Hanging wet bags (waterproof bags), one for in my bathroom (ocean themed) to hold wipes/mama cloth, and one for un-paper towels in the kitchen (orange/red/gold and tan/green palm tree theme)
-   Mama cloth PUL back, dark colored tops.  
-   Some sort of wall art that says right sides together for above my sewing machine (maybe w/a vintage singer design or something)
-   Anything to do with carseats Im a certified carseat tech.
-   I asked Levi what he wanted that someone could make, he said a squishy crab I dunno what he means by that, but maybe you could figure it out!
-   Anything Montessori, or any toys for a preschooler.  (maybe some sort of fabric bowling set?)
-   outgoing mail bag that hangs on a closet doorknob, needs to hold at least a couple packages.  
-   ANY kind of organizer/boxes/baskets etc.  
-   Lip stuff
-   Shampoo w/no artificial stuff in it (and no dairy/oats), for Levi
-   Anything you can make w/my sons picture on it, I love looking at him!

-   Anything from my HUGE wists
-   I also have more stuff I want on my profile.

BRB with my list

I live in Washington with my amazing son, daughter and hubby. We have 2 kitties who own our house.   I'm putting together a coffee themed living room and kitchen (as they are connected) in browns, tans and a deep red/burgendy.  I personally love pink and black combos and would have done the whole house that way if hubby didn't object.
My son's room is done in barnyard animals of horses and cows. But he loves ghiraffs, all horses, elephants and cows the most.
My daughter's room is done in disney princess themes. Currently her favorite princess is Jasmine and any jasmine items would get an extreme amount of love.
I love anime/manga! Anything themed around one of my favorites would be well loved and appreciated.  


*BIG WISH* I want a purse or book bag that resembles Amu's egg purse. Its the little box on her belt. http://www.wists.com/Hika-chan/e0f8abe64e13521bfe23a51c1b7bcc80?offset=0

* A WIP bucket  or bag that I can put my crocheting in. I would keep it in the living room so a brown or coffee theme would be prefered. I would also like it to have handles so it's easy to pick up and move. Pockets would be nice, but not needed.
* Aprons! I love them! I have several in my WIST.  Aprons for either myself or the kids would be loved.
*This Bag http://www.wists.com/Hika-chan/0990b0c9481eb42cc40c9b55466af48f?offset=0 It would match my scarf. But I would like it as a backpack. It looks awkard hanging on your arm.
*Cat nip toys for my kitties
* Play felt/knitted/crochet food for the kids. Any would be loved. There are examples on my wist.
*Crochet hook organizer/roll. Anything that will help me keep them in one place would be awesome.
* A poppet-my daughter would flip- escpecially if it was alice or jasmine
* amigurumi animals for my son. See above for his favs.
* A kitty hat  - theres a few on my wist
* Some cloth diapers for my daughter's Baby Alive doll. They would need to velcro so she can put them on.
* Pajamas or night gown in jasmine theme for my dd in a size 5 (children)
* Pillow cases with jasmine or horses for the kids- would be cool if they had their names also
* Anything from my WISTS
* Hand made soap- would love a coffee smell or something cute for the bathroom
*A sushi shaped pillow for my bed. Or a smaller one for my office chair. I like to hold pillow while i draw.
* A kitty plushie- would love one that was super soft and layed flat so I can cuddle it while I draw.
*Geometric shaped for my son. would prefer something study like wood or something simular. he is hard on his toys.
* dress up magnets for my daughter- she loves jasmine, alice in wonderland and sailor moon the most.
*Other magnets for my bare fridge based on anything mentioned or ask for ideas.
* Alphabet magnets would be awesome as well.
*Toddler book for my son -something like this http://www.wists.com/Hika-chan/ee41920265894feb47bc4e362e80c543?offset=0 but more themed for a boy


*Small MLP - I remake them
* fabric-any would be loved
*yarn-any would be loved
*Scrabble tiles or domino tiles- would be helpful it they already had the hole and pin in place for making pendants
* Linollium for making stamps- i prefer this to erasers- I do alot of print making
* resin kit
*amigurumi books- doesnt need to be new
* felt food books- something that is easy to follow. Or the ones in japanese. doesnt need to be new.
* Watercolor /acrylic canvas- would love an oval one

* I always love getting new ATCS -Maybe Jasmine themed for my daughters room
* I Love tea- especially english breakfast blends and cammomile
* bento molds- for making my kids lunch
