Hi gang!  I am in.  Woot!

Hi everyone & happy summer!  I am Karen, from Portland, Oregon.  I am married, no kids, no pets. I am allergic to floral or other strong scents, smoke, and pet dander (but this is ok, so long as the pet in question is not lying on the project).  I have a wist listed on my profile.

I love Japanese Cute Culture, science fiction & fantasy, renaissance faires, swimming, the ocean, and pagan religions.  My favorite colors are jewel tones of amethyst, emerald and sapphire.  I wear a US size 26/28.

I dabble in several crafts, including jewelry making, sewing, poly clay, painting, drawing, leather working, metal working and crochet.  I am just learning needle felting.

I dislike sugar skulls, anything to do with traditional Western religions, and anything girly/lacy/flowery.

I would prefer not to receive anything related to Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa, etc.  I would love to have some stuff for the summer solstice, autumnal equinox, winter solstice and vernal equinox.

Wishlist:

Crafted items:
A craft smock in a heavyish fabric with pockets on the front.  I have a bad habit of painting and doing other messy crafts without covering up beforehand.  I have ruined several t-shirts that way.  Please message me for size/measurements.
Tote bags I love bags.
Wooden rack to hold several pair of eyeglasses (I have an eyeglasses addiction).
Anything from my wist.
Business card holder somewhat small if you can, but large enough to hold small stacks of 6 different cards.
Goddess figurines for meditation practice, no larger than 4 please. 
A pouch with compartments to hold my iPhone, bluetooth headset and ear buds.


Craft supplies:

Fleece At least yard pieces.  I use these to make hats, so any prints or solids are fine.
ATC blanks.
Watercolors (the kind in the tubes, not the cake kind, please).
Any poly clay or clay working tools.
Roving for needle felting.
Leather stamping tools.
Origami paper

Short Bio:

My name is Casey and I currently live in Colorado. I moved here about two years ago from San Diego (which I miss terribly) to finish college so will be moving back to the warm weather after graduation. I am 23 years old and am getting my degree in Sociology with a minor in Criminology. I want to work in Child Advocacy or Juvenile Probation. I live with my boyfriend Brett and our 3 dogs who are basically our children.  I have a ton of info on my profile that would probably be really helpful.

My favorite colors are summery tones, blues, yellows that sort of thing. Although I love peacock inspired items. I love the combo of red, aqua and white together. I love vintage. I am a huge fan of retro prints as well as whimsical. Our house is decorated in a beachy cottage kinda way. Being from San Diego, we are huge Chargers fans and our basement is like the Chargers bar area. I am a caffeine addict so coffee and tea are a staple for me.

I sew, paper craft, make soap and other body treatments, jewelry making, homemade dog treats. I would like to learn CP soap, embroidery and am starting to learn crochet and quilting.

We celebrate Christmas here although we already have quite a few decorations so I would rather not receive too much holiday stuff

I am allergic to dark chocolate, pineapples and cats. The cats thing really isnt a biggie though, just make a note of it and I will make sure to wash whatever first. Its just when I touch my face and eyes after handling things with cat hair.

*2 San Diego Chargers stockings. Not really a specific idea so a lot of freedom with the design

*Fun throw pillows, I have a bunch on my wist and I can stuff them!

About me:  I'm a 24ys old single mommy to Levi, who will be 3 July 13th!!! We live in Florida and love the beach/ocean, and anything environmentally friendly

We celebrate Christmas, but I really dont need any Christmassy things in July, EXCEPT for an advent calendar that I can put my own stuff into, that would be awesome.  We do the Santa version of Christmas, not the religious version.  

Likes: beach, bright colors, ocean, organic things, natural things, kids things, travel, books, animals, things that smell good, fabric.   Levi loves surfboards, bikes, books, animals, tiny things.  

Dislikes: anything non-vegetarian, most food items Levi is allergic to!, grandma looking things, lace, leather, Americana, anything TV/movie/Disney related (esp when it comes to kids items, Levi is TV free), not a fan of plastic items (Levi is allergic to some plastics)

VERY allergic to smoke of any kind

Hey hey Craftsters!  My name is Gen, and I live in the armpit of the US, New Jersey.  Im 21, and just graduated college with a degree in Broadcasting, so thats my kinda thing.  Im really into old school televisions and radios.  Theyre pretty neat.  Im also into Alice in Wonderland (not Tim Burton!  He killed it!), Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Batman, stars, skulls, lightning bolts, fish, butterflies, Dead Like Me, Old School Flower Power 60s era stuff, Firefly (the show) and Pokemon.  I refer to my mother as Charizard, and apparently, the women in our family evolve into these flying, fire-breathing creatures.  I also like to write, so thats all good.  My favorite colors are teal and purple.  I dont like the color orange, Tim Burton (he ruins our lives, and eats all of our steak), and sunshine.  I really hate sunshine.  And dont hesitate to stalk me on Facebook or whatever, if that would help.

Hi! My name is Lo, Im 19 and currently live in KY, USA. I celebrate Christmas and would LOVE to receive religious fabric, or anything to do with jesus/mary/religious stuff. Other than that I'd rather not receive holiday goodies.

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.
 

CRAFTS:

Hello all, I'm from Thailand, the land of smiles! ^^ Nope, I don't celebrate Christmas, we don't even own a (fake) Christmas tree, so no christmas ornaments or anything like that please.

My favorites color are pink, blue and the pastels. I also like earth-tones. Other colors are lovely too, anything not too bright is fine with me!

My favorites themes are "green" stuff as I'm an environmental science. I also like the ocean especially corals, cows, seals, onigiri, matryoshka, cupcakes, polka dots and other cute stuffs. I'm pretty much a girlie girl so I prefer "sweet" themes.

I'm allergic to smoke.  And, thank you for choosing me!

Crafted items:

Big Slouchy hobo bag like this
In pastel colors, and may be some other thing but hearts or make the heart smaller

Tree of Life pendant like this one . May be in pink?

Stich markers for crocheting

Kanzashi hair decoration (headband or hairclip!) or just the kanzashi flower is fine.

Tote bag, a girl cannot have too many bags.

A project bag for my crocheting projects.. I always stuff them in plastic bags.

Anytype of "reuse" material craft:--> old t-shirt to bags like  this or fun bottle caps charms (No barbie faces pendant please, I found it pretty freaky)

Cute earring for non-pierce ears.

Handmade Lip balms! Love all scents... as long as it's not too "woody"

Bath bombs, fun "bath and bodies" items

Fluffy, soft, cute Onigiri Pillow for my boring office days!

Anything from my wist: http://wists.com/lilyla19

And anything from my themes above!

Kits:
Big wish A kit to make knitted cable bag please . I've only started to learn how to knit and would like everything to help me to make this bag.
A polyclay kit.
A glass-tile pendant kit.

Extras:
Crochet books,magazines and patterns. Secondhand is loved!
Yarn! Any type, any color! My stash want more friends!
Cute little buttons.
Fancy Stamps inkpad.
Suncatcher Amigurumi eyes: any color, any size, (single color prefer)
Candy! I have a sweet tooth.

I'm easy to please and will be grateful for all items receive!
