I claim frosty772 for a surprise.  Smiley

4th claim, 1 outstanding, 1 sent, 1 received

My name is Robin and I live in Oregon, USA.  I am a quarter Japanese, quarter Korean, quarter Jewish, quarter German (100% Mutt... yes!). I am married to Phil a fantastic cook who spoils me with delicious meals; good thing or all we'd eat would be steamed rice and veggies.  We have a 2 year old toddler named Aria who is proverbial light of our lives.  I am a feminist who is raising my daughter in an anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-homophobic household.

I am all over the board, I like whimsical, edgy, bohemian, steampunk, pretty, bold, soft, hardI wear a lot of black and gray, but Ive been branching out into the wondrous color wheel.  I love red and turquoise together. I prefer rich, jewel tone colors and earthy colors! I find myself mostly drawn to blues and greens.  I like images of birds, squirrels, mice, and trees, but I also really like skulls, anatomy, skeletons (especially of birds and other non-human creatures), and old locomotives.  You can check out my wist to get a better idea of what I like. wisty surprises are nice.

a quick note if you claim anything for my daughter...we arent into cartoon branded stuff.  i cant stand barbie or bratz.  we dont dislike pink but we try to stay away from anything overwhelmingly girly.  she likes the ocean, digging in the dirt, burying herself in sand, and splashing in water.  for these reasons durable and washable is always good.  thanks! 

Some of my wishes, BIG wishes in bold  Grin


*my husband needs new pj pants, size M (32 waist, 31 inseam)...he would prefer either black or darker colors in green, blue, or red (plaid is fine)

*pattern weights

NEW*capri yoga pants with cuffed legs like these http://wists.com/Rlynn/pants/c17fc2d801e73ce7945bd97fba8ca15d?offset=0

* tees, tunics, hoodies, pants, hats, or dresses for Aria (shes a solid 2T)
here are a few links to some things i really like but you don't have to make these exact things...just here for inspiration.  there are more examples in my wist

*empire waist dress or shirt for me, bust size 39 (I know this is a pretty big wish *sheepish grin*) 

*cute and unusual stuffies (dragons, cute zombie, squid, octopus, anything slightly odd but cute as they"d be for my toddler)

*thread catcher

New*Fabric buckets to organize toys, craft supplies, etc... (A2K made me some last round, would love more)

*lavender sachets for my drawer

NEW*dinosaur playmat (Aria has a lovely tote of dinos that came with icky plastic playmats printed with dino like landscapes...would love to replace them with something less plastic, maybe painted and sealed canvas mat or simple fabric one???) maybe 15 by 20 inches would be a good size?

NEW*car playmat (similar to the dino but with roads and such...sort of like this one http://wists.com/Rlynn/toy/4ebc993391957a7ee19e21e1eb4f2e99 but feel free to use a diff medium)

*Altered art starring one of my paternal grandparents
NEW embroidered art, i have some wisted to give you ideas on what i like

*encaustic painting

New*art for aria's room, her room is mostly green and blue with a touch of other colors and there are lots of birds  -Thanks cinnamon teal

*Aria is learning her alphabet, some sort of game, book, or whatever that helps in this new adventure would be great (should be durable and please no tiny pieces, she is a toddler and will attempt to tear apart anything plus she still puts everything in her mouth)

*fabric Name book for Aria

*address labels w/a cute little design, bird maybe? (our address is long and annoying to write out)

*I love wide cuffs (leather or metal or even fabric) wrist size = 5.5 inches

*An accordion file organizer (you know like the cardboard kinds) decorated all pretty and awaiting my many and disorganized patterns that are laying about the house, like this one http://wists.com/Rlynn/organization/b5a691708e48aff791d38eff278f24f6?offset=0.

New*appliqued, stenciled, embellished tees, etc... for Aria (Size 2T) we prefer themes like robots, pirates (she has a skully P is for Pirate tee already), ninjas, rockets... we also like birds but please nothing super girly or overwhelmingly pink.   thanks lindyv!

NEW*tiny creatures - i am hoping to put together a village and forest playtable (think a cross between a train table and doll house) for aria by the time she's 3 or so.  i need cute little creations for the table.  i have stuff wisted http://wists.com/Rlynn/play-table that id like for it but whatever youd like to make is fine.  id like to keep them small though.  so no bigger than 2 or 3 inches.  would love animals both real and imagined, people, fairies, dwarves, etc... would also love trees, caves, etc...these can be bigger (please no polymer clay, no sure how i feel about aria playing with it for health reasons, thanks!)

 (PsSt...I dont mind used supplies in the least as long as there is enough to still play around with and have a bit of fun!)
*Fabric (cotton, flannel), scraps are fine, maybe no smaller than 5 x 5...here are some i really like http://www.wists.com/Rlynn/fabric
