I claim Banga for a Shakespeare necklace and an altered Amelie t-shirt

2nd claim this round, 1 in transit

My name is Karen and I live in Austin, TX with my almost teenaged dd, a huge, goofy dog and a lovely, prissy cat.

I claim Terracruz for a knitted hat with ears and reusable snack bags.

This is claim #4 for me (2, 1, 1)

Im Nicole, an at-home mom to my little munchkin, who just turned 2 in January.  I also work a few hours a week at a child care center.  Before I had my daughter, I was an elementary music teacher.  Education and crafting are my two passions other than my daughter, of course!  I knit and sew, mostly.  I used to scrapbook, but somehow I just dont find the time anymore.  I love practical items that are handmade and beautiful.  I would especially love anything from my wists.

Likes: Green, brown, blue and gray. Polka dots, stripes, and paisleys.  Birds of all kinds, especially penguins, owls, and cute fat yardbirds.  Anything musical!

Dislikes: Neons, skully type things, licensed cartoon characters like Dora or Disney princesses.


* Knit socks size 8 1/2, any color/yarn is great!
* Monster hat or newsboy hat for the munchkin
* Newsboy hat for me
* A basket (or 2 or 3) like these: http://wists.com/musicalmama/faedb49966c204c45589e7543f8b92aa?offset=40

* Yoga skirt like this one: http://wists.com/6a3f325dcfa1a05b96d4c8f2e1d66085?q=skirt&offset=0 PM me for sizing info
* Cloth menstrual pads
* Hobo style purse/bag with pockets inside
* Laundry apron to hold the clothespins while I hang the laundry on the line thanks, Terracruz!
* Placemats to match my kitchen would be great!  My kitchen is sage green, kind of a French country feel
* Everyday cloth napkins a set of 6 would be great, again the kitchen is sage green
* A playmat for cars like this one:   http://wists.com/musicalmama/6a294f2e6f4c9d57c33bfd9bfdbedbf2?offset=80
* This knitting bucket organizer is just about the coolest thing ever https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=292678.0

* Handpainted wool yarn or handspun yarn - Any kind of colorway is good, but I especially like the rainbow ones.  Prefer worsted weight, but any is good, really.
* Dyed play silks like these: http://hyenacart.com/beneaththerowantree/index.php?c=0&p=54562
* Stenciled or screenprinted tshirts, size L (I like the longer styles of tshirts) Examples on my wists
* Stenciled, screenprinted, embroidered, appliqud, etc. tshirts  for the munchkin, size 24 months Thanks, Banga!
* Embroidered pillowcases for the master bedroom, quilt colors are either dark green, burgundy and pink, or dark green, sage green, and a medium country blue depending on which quilt Im using.  Im so lucky I have two quilters in my family!  I can get you a photo of the quilts if you need it.
* Soap, sugar scrubs, lotions I like pretty much all scents, just nothing too strong.  I especially love these items that are made with all-natural ingredients! Thanks baa-me-chick!
* Handthrown/handpainted pottery a tea pot or cup/saucer set would be really great!

Surprise Me:
* I like the idea of a ravelry surprise!  My favorites on ravelry are here: http://www.ravelry.com/people/musicalmama/favorites/patterns
* A wists y surprise http://wists.com/musicalmama I just updated and re-organized my wists for your perusing pleasure!

* Yarn: handpainted, handspun, or natural fiber like wool, alpaca, cotton, bamboo, etc.
* Vintage childrens book illustrations (fairy tale stories) Im decoupaging an end table for the munchkins room.  I dont need the original illustrations, a good color copy will work just fine!

* Vintage clothing patterns for toddler girl
* Waste canvas for cross-stitch
* Penguin fabric, any fun patterned fabric
* Mens hoodie, size medium, without a zipper plain black (I cant find this anywhere!)

I claim leighi123  for pocket stuffies and fingerless gloves.

This is my second claim, 1 sent, 1 received.

I am 20 (I've forgotten to change this for several rounds; I turned 20 in DECEMBER) 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 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.
-  Summer skirts. Elastic waist, about 50 cm hip to hem, a-line or flowy in something light, like a linen or a seersucker or something.
-  Weekender bag
-   Throw pillows (quilted, embroidered, knitted, whatever)
-   Handspun yarn
-   Threadcatcher
-   Beaded or poly clay stitch markers
-   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.) House, Grey's Anatomy, knitting, Futurama, 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)
-   Shawl pins/brooches.
- Something (pillow, zipper bag, but not tee cause I have one) with Team Tyler's Van on it.


-   ***Roving/Top for spinning (combed or carded)*** (This is my favorite supply to receive ever, and I will love you lots if that's the supply/thing you claim me for. : )  )
-   Large buttons, preferably in sets of at least four.
-   Yarn (natural fibers only, please), especially greens (like, forest or kelly) and blues or neutrals, any weight
-   Lino carving tool thing (for carving stamps)
-   Large erasers or rubber base thingies for carving stamps
-   Thread (any color)
-   Machine sewing needles (I go through them so quickly) regular, but also leather/denim.
-   Kool-Aid/dye for yarn/roving
-   Rotary Cutter mat (I have the cutter; just need the mat)
-   Awesome fabric--abstract/geometric prints, swirls, Amy Butler-esque, or linen. I love linen.
-   An x-acto knife/blades
-   STAMPS. Pretty much anything as I have pretty much none, but especially words/greetings.
-   Stamp Pads. See above note.
-   Resin kit
-   Purse handles (especially longish ones)
-  Felt (acrylic or wool, I don't mind either)
-  Embroidery floss and/or needles
-  Aida cloth (for cross stitch)
-  Shrinky dink plastic or #6 plastic


Knitting/crocheting books (but pm first)
Paper crafting/card making books
Sewing books/magazines
Back issues of Interweave Knits, Knit1, Knit Simple or Vogue Knitting (or any other knit mags; please pm)
I'll never say no to chocolate or candies, especially gummies.

I'll claim ifallthraindrops for a threadcatcher

this is my 4th claim, (currently at 2 outstanding, 1 sent, 1 received)

About me: I'm Julie. Im 22, living in a small town outside of Houston TX. Engaged but not planning on getting married for a while as were broke.  I am a teacher who is currently without a job because no one is hiring in the middle of the school year teaching health/sex ed even tho she is certified to teach english.  I enjoy reading all kinds of romance novels but I particular like the ones with dukes and princes and such.  I love all things hello kitty, dinosaurs, and hippos.  I dress in Lolita in my free time and am an avid con-goer.  I dont particularly care for the color orange unless it is paired with hot pinks and lime greens. 

I am absolutely completely terrified of clowns.  Please for the love of all things crafty, dont send me something with clowns on it.  I will scream little a baby in the post office and your package will never leave the post office.

I am an auntie to be.  owner of a evil doggie named loki who is not allowed in my craft room.

I am VERY easy to please.  If you put some love into it, Ill love it.  Seriously, Im not picky.   I know my list is pretty long but I wanted to have a variety of stuff so I dont stall the swap.  =)
Clicky my link in my signature for more stuff about me.  =)

-   Hand-dyed yarn or hand-spun yarn any color, any amount
-   A white cotton petticoat like this one: http://www.qutieland.com/product.php?id=499  (you may have to refresh the page so it shows up properly)(i have tulle ones but they irritate my legs so i end up pulling the petti off before i even get to my event so i end up with limp skirts.  =( *VERY BIG WISH*)
-   Bloomers in black or white for me to wear under my Lolita clothes Thanks, edelC!
-   A decorated, waterproof binder for my recipes - something hello kitty inspired or cupcake inspired thanks, banga!
-   A brown/golden brown cloak for ren faires
-   dinosaur themed baby stuff (sizes newborn to 18 months) Thanks, Melissa! But I still need mores! Muahhahahahahaha (mine is an evil laugh)

I claim icebyrd67 for a hollowed out book, some fabric and probably something else!

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

Hi!  Im Alicia!  Im 21 and live in Indianapolis, (USA) where I am currently finishing up my chemistry degree at Butler University, and deciding where to go for my graduate degree.

Likes:  lots of color! (especially blues and greens),argyle, anything food or cooking related, sciencey things, using old or unloved things to make new useful ones, wolves, video games (Luigi is my favorite!), BOOKS (fantasy and scifi fo sho), faeries, Ireland, and vintageness.

Dislikes:  super pink and cutesy or death/goth things (somewhere in the middle is generally good).  Other than that, the sky is the limit!  Im pretty easy to please, and no real allergies! (just dust and dust mites-not a big deal)


**big wish**Wool socks (US womens size 10).  I got turned onto these when I lived in Ireland; they are so warm!

*unrealistically large wish (feel free to completely ignore)*  A sweater vest!  I love these, but can never find cute ones/ones that fit, nor can I knit.  Argyle would be obscenely amazing. 

Homemade bath/beauty products- I have eczema, so anything with dry-skin friendly ingredients would be spectacular! I like lighter scents more than things like cinnamon or strong fruit scents.

A handmade clasp for a cloak Im going to make.  It will be an open cloak (think Lord of the Rings style) and I would really like a beautiful clasp to close it with.  Color will be either light or tealy blue or a jewel tone purple.  It would be the only ornamentation on there, so you could go as complicated as you want with it, but I would want any metal to be silver.

a D20 dice bag like this]https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=322077.msg3714609#msg3714609]this

 A Jar of Whimsies

A book locket necklace!  Ive seen several different kinds of these, and loved them all!

Extra-long oven mitts-Im constantly burning the top part of my arm, right where the mitt ends (but my arms still in the oven), so if I had some that were longer than your average pair, like halfway up your forearm or so, it would save me a lot of little injuries in the line of duty.

I would love a Luigi plushie/ami like this]https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=319961.0]this  Really any kind of Luigi-related stuffie/pillow/other cuddly item would be epic, not just this kind.

A shirt with No power in the verse can stop me from Serenity stenciled on it.  Can be however you want to do it except cutesy (the character who says this kicks butt like no other, if you dont know the movie, so it would just not work)  Womens M.

Anything related to:  Good Eats (AMAZING food/science/cooking show on Food Network), Back to the Future, or the Tenth Kingdom (90s fantasy miniseries by Hallmark-my favorite movie of all time)

My wist is not very big yet, but anything off of, or just vaguely inspired by, the things on there would be great!  I love surprises, so anything that you think I would like or that you love to make, go for it!

Craft Supplies- I am a poor college kid, so sending just supplies would be just as awesome as something crafted, and Id love used/recycled/upcycled stuff as well (yay thrifty)!

Glass beads, pendants, jewelry findings, or unwanted jewelry that I can take apart (cameos specifically would make my day-I love them!)

Fabric!  Larger pieces would be better, but Ill take any!  Ive about exhausted what I got from my grandmas stash, so Im looking to restock.  Basic plain colors would be as much appreciated as crazy prints!

Zippers- I want to make some zippered pouches, and generally practice/learn how to put these in!

Other sewing supplies-, thread, patterns, buttons- If you send it, I will use it! (Bias tape would be extra loved!)

Papercraft stuff-papers, stickers, letters

Latchhook yarn, or any old, new, or half-finished latchhook kits you want to get rid of

Iron on interfacing-always need it, never seem to have any!

The rope/clothesline stuff you use to make coiled rope bowls

*new* fuse bead starter kit- I love all the cool retro video game stuff you can make out of these!

Tea or hot chocolate
Any of your favorite recipes!! (Im all about food, in case you cant tell)
A tarot deck (totally random, but Ive always wanted to try it. If by some random chance you have an old one sitting around that youd like to get rid of)

Thanks in advance to whoever makes my wish come true!!

Im going to claim fishstix43 for fabric and sewing patterns

This is my 2nd claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

Hello, Im located in the US. With my wonderful hubby and son.  We are a smoke free but, pet friendly home.  I love the following themes: Harry Potter anything, Gryffindor, Japanese kawaii, Bento, Mythological creatures, Nintendo, Super Mario, tattoos, Sanrio, autobots, optimus prime, pugs, iguanas, guinea pigs, and video games.  My main crafts to do are knitting & crochet however, I dabble in sewing, fimo clay and other odd crafts.  Other then crafting Im addicted to playing my video games, reading my harry potter books and tattoos.  I have a quirky/geeky sense of humor.  I enjoy watching I love lucy, the big band theory and the older shows like The brady bunch, bewitched and such.  Im thrifty and try to get all of our things at either yard sales, thrift stores or when its on sale at the department stores.  Which is why any pre-loved items sent my way are greatly appreciated.  And as always I thank whom ever claims me in advance!
