Hi, Im turning 27 on the 17th. I currently live in Southern California with my husband and our "puppy" (1 1/2 years old shelter dog). We recently bought our first house and I love being a home owner! I love our home, but I can't wait to move back to Washington. I was raised in Oregon and Washington and I would love anything to remind me of living up there.

I love coffee, sushi, coconut, and my favorite colors are green, purple, and earthy tones. I am not a fan of pink or yellow. My husband and I both embrace our Finnish heritage and have a strange recurring cow theme in our relationship, so any Finland or cow related items would be great!

I have no allergies unless you plan on sending me preserved pork. Oh, and I do not have pierced ears, so no earrings please!

Big Wishes in Bold!

~ Anything from/inspired by my wist http://www.wists.com/Kartiana (Recently updated)
~ Coffee themed anything
~ Cow themed anything (preferably for my kitchen)
~ Etched shot glasses
~ Necklaces that can be worn casually for work (maybe a simple chain with pendant? See my wist for some ideas)
~ Hair clips (I only wear one clip at a time, so no need for matching sets)
~ A writing journal with prompts to get me writing again
~ A business card holder, in a nature green/purple design or any other design ideas you think I'd like
~ Finnish themed magnets. Some ideas:
   Flag - http://www.worldatlas.com/webimage/flags/countrys/europe/finland.htm
   Hyv piv! = Good day!
~ Joulupukki (Santa in Finnish) Xmas ornament would be awesome!
~ "Hauskaa Joulua" (Merry Christmas in Finnish) Ornament.
~ Wrap pants! I would love a pair in flannel or something else that is soft and comfy. I will use these to lounge around on lazy days so color/print is not a huge issue, just no yellow please! Tutorial: http://laupre.wordpress.com/2008/06/29/easy-breezy-wrap-pants-tutorial/
~ A sampler box: http://www.homeofthesampler.com/
~ Something for displaying my inchies (newly addicted)
~ Handmade cards, preferably for any occasion but "Thank You" or other specifics would be ok (Finnish themed Xmas cards would be amazing!)
~ Dog toy for our "puppy"
~ Comfy slippers to wear around the house (Mary Jane style, just added a few to my wist)
~ Wedding vows wall art (my husband and I wrote our vows, I will PM them if claimed) We are finally framing the print we bought on our honeymoon and are looking into other art for our home. Something that goes well with our honeymoon print would be awesome!!! I'll take a pic of it as soon as we have it back from being framed.
~ Pretty Kitchen towels for drying hands (Hang over oven handle). coffee and cow themed preffered, but anything goes for this  Wink
~ Memory Board for my craft room

Supplies (used is fine for any of these):
~ Mens button ups for recons (flannel would be awesome)
~ Ribbon
~Sewing patterns:
       Tank top pattern in my size (36 bust)
       This pattern or similar http://www.wists.com/Kartiana/4564c23b5758ee7b6571600db1d7bc41?offset=60
~ Jewelry making supplies (I mostly use seed beads and like to play with wire)
~ Buttons (any color, any kind)
~ Paper bits/scraps in any color/design
~ Anything to help me organize my craft room
~ Sewing magazines (please no quilting magazines)
~ Crochet magazines / patterns for beginners
~ Any book from my crafty Amazon wish list (used is fine): http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/PM0C4TP3TJDG
~ 1/2 inch strips of fabric for my rag rug. Blue, green, and/or purple. Any type of fabric, any length.
~ Any sewing pattern for clothing on my wist
~ Watercolor paints (and how to use them)
~ Paper Punches (I already have a 1" square, scalloped square, itty bitty snowflake, microscopic dragonfly, teeny tiny spiral, and small star) Would love a heart punch, medium star punch, and medium dragonfly or butterfly punch, or any other punches I don't already have Smiley
~ Fine tipped markers (for writing on inchies/ATCs) in any/all colors

~ Seattle's Best coffee
~ Chocolate covered coffee beans (yum! You would be my friend forever!)
~ Reece's Peanut Butter Cups
~ Postcards/photographs of Oregon/Washington (or similar green places)

Just saying HEY! I am not posting a list yet since I haven't been approved but here is a little about me
I am turning 40 this month and yet I still act like I am 20 .  I am a Quality Control Manager in a chemical maufacturing facility and also the Distribution and Routing Asst.  I have 3 daughters , we live in Palm Coast Fl.  They are totally normal and I still live in a goth induced fantasy of epic proportion, I wear only black or black related .  I make most of my own clothes and I love skulls and Ctulhu and the like.
 Well I guess I will wait to see what happens until I post anything .

Hi! My name is Lauren, and I just turned 18 on June 5th.  I live in Savannah, GA.   I live with my mom and dad, and will start at Georgia College and State in the fall to major in art and music therapy.  I have a dog, Muggles, who is six and an English Cocker Spaniel, who my family knows as my furry sister.  I work part time at a local fort, but the job is pretty boring.  It gets slow out there, but the people who come by can be colorful at times.  For my crafts I sew, paint, needle felt, and Ive made one bracelet.  Im trying to learn as many new things as possible, so please feel free to send kits/instructions for anything that doesnt have materials that are too expensive xD  Im not allergic to anything.  My favorite colors are light pink and purple, and I like bright teal/turquoise as well.  Im very into music, both listening and Ive played the piano since I was in 2nd grade.  Id prefer mostly functional items, as I dont have that much space, but a small wall art for my dorm might be nice.  Its unlikely that Ill wear a knitted/crocheted item other than a scarf or mittens, theyre just not my style.  I tend to be a bit preppy and girly in style, though chill in personality.

My list!

a thread catcher to match my sheets (pink and orange, mostly)
a pincushion, preferably something music related
some sort of beaded ring, size 4.5 (i know, im tiny)
small headbands of any sort, all varieties (by small I mean skinny, rather than the huge thick ones)
hair bows, the little bows that are on clips (I dont need sets, I only wear one at a time)
coiled bowls to hold things on my desk at college
friendship bracelets, skinnier ones are preferable
a quilted wallet with a zippered coin pouch
anything from my wist

fabric, preferably in yards but I can work with smaller pieces as well (I have a book of projects that use a yard of fabric each)
basic sewing supplies (my mom wont let me take hers to college.  thread in all colors, extra needles, zipppers, buttons, bobbins, etc. etc.  Anything is appreciated)
wool roving
felting needles
kits to learn new crafts, especially crocheting (and amigurumi)
a set of colored sharpies
a set of colored pencils
jewelry making supplies (I like charm bracelets)
Id really like the supplies to make an Amy Butler weekender bag (pattern and fabrics) but I have no idea how much this costs (fabrics dont have to be Amy Butler, just a cute design)

I like candies that arent sour and dont have nuts (not allergic, just a preference)
Nothing that burns (incense, candles)
I dont drink tea or coffee
I figured Id tell you donts and leave everything else open xD
