 few small things have changed such as You must take pics of your package before you ship & added you must post pics of your swap received within 5 days of receiving or have the sender post...


When sending PMs, please label them as OWS 62 with one of the following tags:
Package sent
Package received

So when sending the questionnaire, the subject will read OWS 62 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.

Please bookmark this thread and/or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.

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 61.

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 EIGHT PER SECTION i.e. CRAFTS and SUPPLIES.  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. We 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:


BABALINA58 will be our organizer, in charge of your claims, your sends, receives and approval feedback.
Craftybeachgirl will be or co Organizer in charge of watching the Discussions, Gallery  and finding Angels if need be

I am able to do personal swaps again so lets get some going Cheesy
« Reply #5 on: August 31, 2010 10:03:36 PM »

I claim Padfoot for a Handbook for the Recently Deceased box!

This is my first claim, so 0 sent and 0 received of course!

My name is Chloe and I live in Oregon, US.  Im a proud teenage nerd who also likes making things.  Beware: Im rather random and like to type.

   Some things I am obsessed with:  Doctor Who (LOVE!), Star Trek (all series except original), Dr Horribles Sing Along Blog, Youtube, The Hunger Game Trilogy, and memorizing pi (though Ive only gotten to 40 digits).
   My favorite animals are the: platypus, echidna, squid, and anglerfish.  I like weird animals.
   My favorite foods are: waffles (sans syrup!), spaghetti (sans sauce!), pizza with olives, cheese, cinnamon rolls, and tea.  
   My favorite saying: Dont forget to be awesome.
   My favorite colors/patterns: I like sky blue, yellowy green, warm brown, red, and orange.  I strongly dislike pink and purple.  I like circles, stripes, and argyle.

NOTE: Im allergic to cigarette smoke and cats, though as long as a cat doesnt sleep on whatever you make it probably wont bother me.  Also, my t-shirt size is generally M.  



-Hand-carved wooden Father Christmas (traditional/old world style think more like Saint Nicholas with floor-length robes and darker colors, not the commercialized fat Santa Claus with his bright red coat.)  This is probably much too big an item to put on here but I thought I might as well!  (If its even a possibility, I would be thrilled with a Santa thats even just a few inches tall.)


-Screen printed/stenciled T-shirts/hoodies!  As prints go, I love food, animals, things from nature, technology (especially old machines like typewriters), random items, sci fi, things to do with Youtubers (the Vlogbrothers are my absolute favorite!), geek references  Pretty much any new t-shirt is going to make me happy.

-Stuffies.  Like this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/54686541  I'd love animals, food, Doctor Who or geek related stuffies.

-Doctor Who stuff!!!  I love the old series AND the new series my favorite Doctor is the 10th though.  I dont have anything particular in mind, but useful stuff is nice.  (Purse, jewelry, shirt, cup, mug, coaster, journal, etc.)  But if its Doctor Who, I will love it no matter what!  (My favorite things from the show: the TARDIS, the Doctor, Donna, gold Daleks, the sonic screwdriver.)

-Star Trek stuff.  Again, useful stuff is awesome.  I love all the versions except for the original series.  My favorite characters: Data, Q, the Doc, Odo, Picard and Janeway.


-Delicate jewelry.  I love jewelry that is very delicate, and I like when theres not much more than a single charm or pendant.  I love silver!  A prime example: http://www.etsy.com/listing/54848376

-Geek stuff!  I love being a geek/nerd and dont mind if anyone knows.  I would especially love shirts or bags useful stuff again with geeky sayings on them.  http://www.thinkgeek.com/ is an awesome website for geeky ideas!

-Christmas stuff!  I love decorating for Christmas, especially with a red and white theme.  I dont like the commercialized side of Christmas and prefer to decorate with more traditional, old-fashioned things.  I prefer Father Christmas over Santa Claus.  (No religious theme, though.)

-Pretty knitted wearable items.  Only natural fibers, please!  I especially like slouch hats and fingerless mitts.  I also really love soft grey, cream and fall colors for knitted wearable things.  (No crochet please, I prefer the look of knitting.  Smiley)

-Handmade journals!  I love this style: http://www.etsy.com/listing/52909624  


   I have a ton of supplies already so I dont really need anything!  However, I do love yarn so yarn made with natural fibers is great.  I prefer natural colors, nothing really bright and neon.  
   Also, a mini button maker (used is great) would be pretty awesome.  Especially if it came with supplies, heheh!  But NOT a big button maker for some reason I only like the little ones.  
   And ehrm  Really cute Japanese fabrics I suppose?  I dont sew much but I just might if I had some of that lovely stuff.


   TEA!  I love tea.  But it must be decaf, and I really dont like herbal.  Rooibos is my all-time favorite tea!
   Candy!  Anything except chocolate or coffee.  I love gummies and caramel.  Oh, and I ADORE Jelly Babies!
   Metal pins!  I collect them.
   Spa stuff lotion, body butter, lip balm, etc. all make me really happy.  I like vanilla-y, Christmassy and Hawaiin smells!

*** Oh yes, and anything from my Wist is great too!  http://www.wists.com/ChloeShields ***

I claim Opaka for a geeky shirt

1st claim

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 always 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!

« Reply #9 on: September 01, 2010 10:51:51 AM »

I claim edie22 for something wisty, or one of her sewn items.

First claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

Hi, Im Kirsten, Im a full time student. I live in New Zealand, married with two teenaged stepsons and two spoilt cats. Art and craft keep me somewhat saner than I would be otherwise.

I like most colours, and particularly blue/green/teal/aqua, natural tones, or black and white. See my profile or my wist for more ideas about my taste. Im happy to chat, and easy to please, feel free to PM me if you want to know more.

Since I live far, far away, I do appreciate craftsters being willing to send to me. I have tried to keep my wishlist items small and light. Thank you!!

* a Tea and Cake or Death? tea cosy (Eddie Izzard quote) Id prefer sewn (stencilled/appliqu/embroidered/whatever), rather than knitted
* handmade sketchbook/journal (unlined if possible, mixed/recycled papers are great) (- thanks puzzler!! Smiley I love to use my sketchbooks, so I am keeping this on the list for now)
* handmade kirsten stamp, or handmade stamps in a theme I like (see my profile)
* a pockety bag lots of different size pockets for projects/art supplies, any style or size, doesnt have to have any zippers
* a Star Trek or Doctor Who thingy, whatever you like to make, my faves are Spock, tardis and daleks. (Useful rather than decorative is usually my preference, but any Spock, tardis, or dalek item that lands in my letterbox will find a home)
* a tardis pockety bag would be truly awesome
* a fox or a British robin in your favourite craft medium (again, great if its useful, but not essential)
* handknitted wool socks (average womens size, any colour)
* hand dyed/hand spun yarn (prefer natural fibres, any colour you think looks good)
* stitch markers for knitting
* postage stamp pendant
* something embroidered (hand or machine, a panel for me to make into something, or a finished item basically, anything you think I might like!)
* handmade ceramic item, esp. in celadon green keep it small and affordable to mail. (I would love a little fox like the one on my wist)
* wisty surprise - http://wists.com/jemimah

* real silk for embroidery, any colours this is my big wish, its hideously expensive where I live (its probably not that cheap where you live, but I bet its cheaper than here!). I am addicted to Soie d'Alger (made by Au Ver Soie). If you send me some, I will also send you a tiny pretty made with it by way of extra thanks. Smiley
* any interesting embroidery supplies (please stick with quality over quantity, Id much rather have a tiny envelope with a few lovely skeins/little things than lots of cheap floss/beads, and it's also cheaper for postage!) The sort of stuff I like is DMC, anything silk or linen, Au Ver Soie, Japanese stuff, bits for goldwork (purl, kid, etc.), handmade/hand dyed, quirky things. Vintage/recycled is great.  No Aida please.
* silk or embroidered fabric, Japanese fabric (just small bits for embroidery and tiny things; no bulk fabric Id love it, but it may bankrupt you to mail it)
* Noro yarn (thanks NatACT!), recycled sari yarn
* thick stampcarving material (I have the tools, but the only stuff to carve I can easily find here is lino and small erasers)
* vintage Anna magazines (either English or German) these might be pricey to ship so just 1 or 2 is fine
* nice paper - e.g handmade, japanese, printmaking, textured, any colour or weight - it's for printmaking, so plainish rather than very patterned - but whatever you think is nice would be great (just a few pieces)
* paper ephemera

* small black safety eyes (just a few pairs)
* I always enjoy bookmarks, vintage/interesting buttons, little pouches, etc.
* please keep it light and easily posted! no candy

NB. New Zealand has tough biosecurity at the border. This is very unlikely to apply to this swap, but just in case ... Please dont send natural materials (feathers, leaves, wood, seeds e.g. lavender, etc.) Everything on my list is absolutely fine to send, but PM me if youre unsure about something. Thanks  Smiley
