Organizers: TwiztidBlood and sunspotted

When sending PMs, please label them as OWS 58 with one of the following tags:
Package sent
Package received

So when sending the questionnaire, the subject will read OWS 58 Approval. When notifying us about sending and receiving packages, add the corresponding tag. If you just have a general question, label it as that. This will keep things organized for us!  When sending a sent/received PM, please include the 'Send by' date so my craziness will stay at a minimum.

How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!

Try to imagine a chain.  The first link is the first person whose wish list is on page 1 (Person A) - that will be the craftster member who was the very last wish list from Ongoing Wish Swap 57.

Now, we want to put another link in the chain.  People will read that list and see if there is something they want to/can make from the list.

Someone (Person B) will claim Person A for some item on their wish list.  They post a reply to the thread that says I claim Person A for [item].  This is my X claim (however many times they have picked someone for example, "this is my fourth wish, with one sent, and three received, (meaning that this is the fourth claim they've made, one is in transit to it's destination, and three of the items have been received by the people they previously claimed).  Also add your location, and any preferences or aversions I live in Wisconsin USA, I am a vegetarian, and I am allergic to wool.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!  This means you need to post who you are claiming and for what, how many claims you have made, including how many in transit and how many received, and your location/preferences/aversions.

Then comes the fun part!  After the introduction, Person B is the last link in the chain, and they post their wish list!!!  YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF SIX.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.

(Please have your list ready, this swap moves very quickly!  Please include your country at the start of your wish list). Person B will also PM Person A to get her address so they can mail the item when it is finished.  

Along comes Person C, who claims Person B for something on their list and the chain is built, link by link.  (If Person C wanted to make Person B a purse AND a stuffie, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  Then they post their list, and so on.

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.

After you have made your claim, you need to PM that person for their address.

Friends of Craftster are allowed 3 wishes at one time, others are allowed 2 wishes.  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish until your craft is received for this month.  Do not choose over your given limit.
If you already have one claim that will be sent out late, please don't claim again until that one is sent out.

Become a Friend of Craftster!  Go here: https://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php

If you are at your limit of wishes, you can choose again once one of your partners receives, NOT when you send.

***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***

Let's keep the quality high here. I don't want to receive PMs with people concerned over the lack of quality of their items.  Please, just work your hardest to keep the bar high on the quality of items here!  Don't choose just for the sake of choosing; choose to make someone else a really AWESOME wish!

Now if the thread gets in a rut for a few days/hours, the person who made the last wish should add to their list if they can think of anything else, until someone decides to craft for them. Please make sure this is not you!

Unsure of where to find wish ideas?  Try the previous ongoing wish swap galleries or any other gallery on craftster.  Look through your fellow crafters wist lists.

( the medium can be a couple small items etc as long as it adds up to a medium )
( A medium item equals two hours of crafting time or $20 worth of store bought items )

Please be communicative if you are having any issues. If you communicate you still need to send your item in a timely manner.  Communication does not mean you can send as late as you want.  After one week past the deadline you will have negative feedback.  This is only temporary as it will be changed back once you fulfill your obligation for late item(s).  Do not choose to craft an item if you do not think you can meet these deadlines.

I will be giving feedback in the following way:
-  great swapper: for those who follow all the rules
-  good/poor communication:  where applicable
-  sent late: where applicable
-  no dc number: failed to comply with the rule about using a confirmation number for packages within their own country
- didn't post pictures: failed to post pictures of what they received without an adequate explanation to their partner

Previous Swap Rounds:
If you are confused in any way by how this works, please look at some previous rounds:


TwiztidBlood - Will be your organizer, in charge of your claims, your sends, receives and approval.
sunspotted - Will be co-organizer, in charge of the discussion thread.

i claim pheonixfiredesigns for a few wisty surprises!

this is my third claim. (0 in transit, 1 received)

Hi! My name is Lo, Im 19 and currently live in KY, USA. I share an apartment with 3 other ladies, they are not crafty and get super annoyed by my crafty clutter (why cant they just understand!?) so I think Id prefer to receive functional items instead of just cutsie things that will add to the mountain of goodies I already have.

Favorites!- My favorite colors are purple, teal, and maroon. I also love black/white/silver combos. I have a DEEP love for bats, Ive always been obsessed with the little guys! Therefore I love vampires too, but the dark kind! NOT fantasy, I HATE Twilight. I also love angels, skeletons, the human anatomy, outer space, tattoos, vintage, grandma stuff, piercings, matryoshka dolls, anything funky! and last, I love anything to do with Jesus and Mary!

Dislikes!- I really dislike animal prints! I can not wear regular earrings because my lobes are stretched. I also can not have anything that has a really strong smell, like something that smells like it is covered in perfume or smoke, I will get a terrible migraine.

things I really  really extra want are in purple!


- new! a coupon organizer! (like this - http://www.etsy.com/listing/45839473/coupon-organizer-kids-toile )

- new! this cross stitch! ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/artrim/485586740/in/[email protected] )

- knitted socks! I wear a size 6 shoe (a2k made me my very first pair and i'm addicted!)

- binder cover with pockets inside. I want one to hold my crochet patterns! (like this - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=43635640)

- altered journal! For writing my dreams down in (Im obsessed with deciphering dreams)

 - a rack to hold my thread (like this http://wists.com/dearelizabeth/7abcbb9be33522e30e5de3ff3a954dfc?offset=40 ORRR THIS https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=318652.0;topicseen )

- a sewing machine and/or serger cover

- lobster claw stitch markers (any will work! but these are sooo super cute! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=37955205 )

- anything on my wists!

- a ribbon organizer like this (http://www.wists.com/dearelizabeth/79a4b36cada03a10206f89bd3e3e6a13?offset=0 )

- a rosary, I wear one everyday and they break quite easily so Im always needing more. Handmade ones are amazing. (i really would extra love a wooden one!)

- new! travel size wet bag for cloth pads, one to keep in my purse!

- fabric menstrual pads (I have some but could use more)


- religious fabric!

-ribbon of any kind

- a learn to work with resin kit! Ive been dying to do this because I want to learn to fill tunnels for gauged ears.

- pattern for sewed baby booties (like this - http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=37978982 )

- crochet patterns for baby anything! (prego sister Cheesy)

I will claim babalina58 for a sewing machine apron that will hopefully say "Monica" on it.  

this is my 1st claim, (currently at 1 outstanding, 0 sent, 0 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 like a little 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*)
-   A brown/golden brown cloak for ren faires
-   dinosaur themed baby stuff (sizes newborn to 18 months)
-   A soap making kit because I have always wanted to learn how to make soap. i would love a cold process kit but melt and pour would be fine.  (i know you can't mail me lye but i can get that on my own)
-   simpsons themed or one piece themed throw pillows for my couch.  i can stuff them and close them if you would like to just send me the casings
-   a sturdy diaper bag that is large enough to fit a small can of formula, two bottles, a small hot water thermos,  two changes of clothes, and a couple of small toys.  Maybe something with a lot of pockets and a elastic piece in the corner to keep the thermos upright?  Oh!  And it needs to close with a zipper or something.   I have 1.667 yards of this adorable dinosaur fabric I would love for the bag to be made out of.  I can mail you the fabric if you pick this.
-   steampunk accessories surprise me!  I like everything!  My steampunk wardrobe is mostly blacks, red and whites.
-    12 inch quilt blocks in reds, pinks, blacks, and offwhites. whatever patterns you want to do.  Im making a hodgepodge quilt using squares made by other people.  I love how they end up looking. =)
-    felt food anything!  =)  I love felt food and so do the kids who are always in and out of my house.
-   a sock monkey in any color but orange.  Unless its like a rainbow or patterned sock. If you can make me one with a mom tattoo like in the car commercial, i will love you FOREVER!
-    an apron cupcakes or dinosaurs or stripes or polka dots or whatever.  =) half apron would be good.
-    *BIG WISH* an ironing mat for my craft room. theres not always enough room to pull out the board, especially when I work on small projects.  Something thats like 16 by 20 inches is good.  If it rolls up, even better.  =)

-   Yarn worst weight in whatever colors and whatever fibers you got.  =)
-   Fabric cute cotton fabrics at least fat quarter in size - really looking for dinosaur prints for a quilt i'm making

I claim Padfoot for the 3 Way Halter dress for her daughter.

1st claim this round of 3.

My name is Karen and I live in Austin, TX with my almost teenaged dd (who tends to be the recipient of most of my swap wishes Smiley ), a huge, goofy dog and a lovely, prissy cat.

I love designs from the 60's and early 70s (think mod & flower power). I used to have a 1974 VW Thing and I miss it a lot! I also love Asian designs in fabric and artwork. I was born in the year of the Dragon and I just love them! Also, pretty much any Amy Butler fabric.

I would love anything from my wist : www.wists.com/luckdragon but especially the things below.  I prefer practical things that can be used.

Things in purple are what I would absolutely love!
