I claim styupe for iron on transfer paper and large crochet hooks, and probably another small surprise!

1st claim, 0 in transit, 0 received

Hi!  Im Alicia!  Im 21 and am back at home in Illinois until I move to Wisconsin for grad school in chemistry in the fall!

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 allergies! 

Wool socks (US womens size 10).  I got turned onto these when I lived in Ireland; they are so warm!
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   
Could be any colors or fabrics, this one's just an example!

A book locket necklace!  Ive seen several different kinds of these, and loved them all!
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 for cutesy. Womens M for a regular tshirt, if it runs tight/short then L.

A cute small wallet (id card sized)-I like to just take my debit card, license, etc, when I go places but am afraid of one of them falling out of my pocket.  If there was a clip on it so I could hook it to my belt loops, it would be super awesome!
A lacy little crocheted/knitted half-jacket to wear over plain shirts and tanks.  Doesnt need to be warm (read: can be really open stitches so hopefully it wouldnt take forever), just pretty!

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 totally support reusing supplies, so used is always more than okay!
Glass beads or pendants (cameos specifically would make my day-I love them!)
Sewing supplies- thread, patterns, buttons- If you send it, I will use it! Im pretty set with fabric right now, but anything else would be awesome!
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!
Fuse bead starter kit- I love all the cool retro video game stuff you can make out of these!

Amigurumi starter set for absolute basic beginners.  Yarn has never been my thing, but these are all so cute, I cant not try!

Candle-making stuff: Wicks, molds, dyes, scents, colored wax or plain paraffin.  I run through this stuff like its water!   Grin

Fiskars 45mm rotary cutter replacement blades or self healing cutting mat (I have a 12 x 18 mat, but a bigger one would be great!)

Tailors chalk (preferably white, but any color would be good)

Clear quilters ruler

Really thick yarn to use with Knifty Knitters.  Lion Brand Thick and Quick is what Ive used before- It doesnt have to be that brand, but just so you have an idea!

Tea or hot chocolate
Any sewing magazines you want to get rid of!  (General sewing like Threads, not just quilting ones-I dont have the patience or the space to quilt! Cheesy)
Any of your favorite recipes!!

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

~*About Me*~
I am a 29 year old stay at home mom of three in Baltimore, Maryland.  I have a French Bulldog, an Egyptian Mau and two newly acquired hermit crabs.  My specialty is crafting for children, but I enjoy learning new techniques and making gifts for anyone.  My favorite colors are bright; lime green, teal, magenta, purple, etc.  Im not a huge fan of earth tones.  I am a hippy at heart; we live as green as we can, especially with a son having ADHD.  I am a HUGE fan of vintage items and martini related items.  I prefer funky modern or vintage prints.  Not a floral girl here at all, unless its a funky modern print.

Im not a huge fan of smoke, but otherwise, no allergies.

~*Craft Wishes*~

* Hello Kitty themed birthday things for Harpers 1st Birthday (hat, photo album, whatever)
*  A Weekender bag. With three active kids, it would be used nearly every weekend.  Especially when sports start up.
* A fairy or princess or even Disney themed poppet for my five year old.  Totally a Christmas present here.
* Skull or Harley themed etched glasses
* A really useful diaper bag.  My Kate Spade bag is too rigid and kind of a pain in the butt to use.
*  A themed sock monkey.  Superhero, princess, etc.
* Any kind of Thomas the Tank Engine craft for a three year old (present for nephew)
* A monster art tote
* Anything for use at the gym for me or hubby.  Shirts, yoga pants, a gym bag, etc.  Anything goes.  We visit the gym faithfully 3x a week.
* Reusable sandwich bags for lunchboxes. Girly or Boyish.  I have one of each going to school.  
* Tinkerbell themed kids wallet
* Disneys Cars themed kids wallet
* A big girl wallet for me.  DH is getting tired of me losing my cards, lol
* Something off of my Wists is awesome.  http://www.wists.com/SMLounsbury
*  A loaded Charm bracelet.  Totally admire these but I cannot make jewelry to save my life.
* A mini loaded charm bracelet for my five year old mini-me.
*  Freezer paper stenciled shirts for me or the hubs for the gym.  Im a size small, hes a size medium/large.  
* Knitted or crocheted cardigan for DD3.  Size 18 months.
* Some kind of organizer for keys.  I am always losing mine.  Something to hang by the door is preferable
* Handmade soaps.  Anything goes here; Ive never had handmade.
* A Cheshire cat plush for my 11 month old.  Shes obsessed with the pink Disney version but we cant find her a decent stuffed one.
* Handknit socks.  I have tiny feet.  I think my shoes are a size 6.  Being a stay at home mom, I love to rock funky socks.
* Barrettes for my girls.  We dont have too many, so anything goes.  Harper doesnt have a lot of hair yet, so maybe a headband would be fun for her.  I adore themed barrettes like Holiday, Disney, animals, etc.
* Hair clips for me.  Like an idiot, I cut my bangs a few months ago and instantly hated it.  I am constantly looking for cute barrettes to hold the disaster while it grows out.
*Dangly earrings (I prefer silver tones rather than gold)

~*Craft Supplies*~
* Lampwork beads
* Jewelry findings and supplies (Im just starting to attempt this)
* Funky printed fabric.  (cotton, flannel, fleece, whatever)
* Vintage buttons or vintage anything
* Circular knitting needles
* Quilting supplies (I plan to learn this winter)

* Anything Hello Kitty
* Candy  (anything; this house is full of candy eaters)

I am able to do personal swaps again so lets get some going Cheesy

I claim babalina58 for a sugar skull surprise inspired by her wist.

This is my first claim

My name is Teresa.  I am a native Georgian (seems there aren't many of us around here anymore) who lives a little north of Atlanta.  I've been married to the same wonderful guy for almost 30 years.  We have 3 grown "kids" and still have 2 at home while they finish their educations ( one last year of bachelors, one starting grad school next month).  We have lived in the exact same spot our entire marriage and its the only home my kids know.  We share our little homestead with one cow, one mini donkey, 3 mini goats, and 6 cats.  I've taught pre-school for 17 years and can't imagine doing anything else.  I love my life and I love myself and I'll admit I don't have a lot of patience for moaners and whiners.  Those people probably just need to craft something.


Absolutely anything off my extensive wist
beaded tree sculpture ( not jewelry) in amber/orange/brown
Dr. Seuss themed Shrinky Dink jewelry ( adult sized)

anything sugar skull/ Day of the Dead themed

knitted purse in greens with wooden handles

any Japanese craft book
bias tape makers
