 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 63 with one of the following tags:

IMPORTANT: Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

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 62.

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 )
Feedback will be given as soon as you have sent - received -posted pics.

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 claim padfoot for a felt playmat set!

This is my first claim this round, 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. I love art and I do a lot of drawing and printmaking.

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. I like lots of things, so dont feel you have to stick to the wist inspirations too closely. I dont have allergies. I prefer natural fibres, but not exclusively, so if you think its nice Ill probably like it too. 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!!


* wisty surprise - http://wists.com/jemimah
* 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 fox or a British robin in your favourite craft medium (again, great if its useful, but not essential)
* things to put other things in box, purse, bag, wallet, organiser, etc.

* a pockety bag lots of different size pockets for projects/art supplies, any style or size, doesnt have to have any zippers
* a tardis pockety bag would be truly awesome
* a Cake or Death? tea cosy (Eddie Izzard quote) Id prefer sewn (stencilled/appliqu/embroidered/whatever), rather than knitted
* something embroidered (hand or machine, a panel for me to make into something, or a finished item basically, anything you think I might like!)
* an awesome apron (plain and practical, something fun, or something pretty - you choose!)
* crafty organiser (e.g. needlework project holder, thing for storing small supplies and bits, stationery organiser)

* handknitted wool socks (average womens size, any colour)
* stitch markers for knitting
* felted scarf like the ones on my wist (green/teal/lime/aqua would be great)
* felted bowls/containers
* fingerless mitts in wool or natural fibres, any colour you think is nice (I like the ravelry patterns Fetching, Humanity, Princess, but other patterns are fine too)
* hand dyed/hand spun yarn (prefer natural fibres, any colour you think looks good)

* notecards/stationery
* handmade sketchbook/journal (unlined if possible, mixed/recycled papers are great)
* handmade stamps in a theme I like (see my profile and wists), e.g. birds, frogs, fish, trees, art related.

* handmade ceramic item, esp. in celadon green (but any colours are good) keep it small and affordable to mail. (I would love a little fox like the one on my wist)
* stencilled t-shirt (XL, v-neck or scoop neck, 3/4 or long sleeves best, but not essential)
* postage stamp pendant
* something else that I havent thought of, that you think Id like!


* 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 fine.  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, recycled sari yarn, other silk/luxury 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 art supplies items:-
     - pencils, markers and pens (Prismacolor/Derwent/Caran D'Ache/Posca for example, or similar)
     - peel and sketch charcoal pencils
     - drypoint etching tools (needle, scraper, roulette, plastic for etching)
     - inkpads, little stencils, stamps, etc.

(Smiley I know I have put some quite expensive things on my supplies list. This is because it would be a waste of your money to post lots of the cheaper supplies that I like and use all the way to NZ, unless you live near me of course! I really do only expect small amounts/tiny parcels, within the OWS guidelines.)

* I always enjoy bookmarks, vintage/interesting buttons, little pouches, etc.
* no candy (I like it TOO much)

Smiley Smiley Thank you to everyone who has sent me lovely things!!! Some things are still on my list, because I love what you sent, and I am happy to receive similar things again.

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

I am able to do personal swaps again so lets get some going Cheesy
« Reply #6 on: October 01, 2010 04:54:24 AM »

I claim babalina58 for embroidered bath sheets (and other surprises)


~*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 hermit crabs.  My specialty is crafting for children, but I enjoy learning new techniques and making gifts for anyone.  I am participating in this round to start accumulating Christmas presents for family.

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


* A really useful diaper bag.  My Kate Spade bag is too rigid and kind of a pain in the butt to use.
* Any kind of Thomas the Tank Engine craft for a three year old (present for 3 y.o. nephew)
* A monster themed art tote for a toddler (I think I have one on my wists)
* Etched snowflake glasses
* Reusable sandwich bags for lunchboxes. Girly or Boyish.  (I have a daughter and a son)
* 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
*  Freezer paper stenciled shirts for my hubby.  Hes a size medium/large (loves video games/geeky things/thundercats).  
* Knitted or crocheted cardigan for DD3.  Size 18 months.
* Handmade soaps.  
* 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 (silver metal)
*  Freezer paper stenciled hoodie for my hubby
*  Ballet bag for Olivia (ballet themed)
*  Doll like Martha Stewarts Black Apple doll for my newborn niece.  
* DS case for Olivia (hello Kitty would be great)
* DS case for Nicholas (pokemon, batman, etc. would be great)
* some kind of dainty earrings for my mother in law.  I believe she wears silver.  She's a small lady, so understated is good.

~*Craft Supplies*~
* Jewelry findings and supplies (Im just starting to attempt this)
* Funky printed fabric.  (cotton, flannel, fleece, whatever)
* Vintage buttons or vintage anything
* Freezer paper

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

I claim SMLounsbury for 2 DS cases


My name is Victoria and I'm a stay at home mom of one little boy, Charlie, who will be two at the end of October. We live in Texas and we have 2 cats and a dog.  I like girly stuff and bright & jewel toned and natural colors.

-Stirrup Legwarmers- Sausalito Stirrup Socks (Free pattern on Lionbrandyarn.com)
-Teapot art/embroidery for kitchen wall or on a "tea towel" on white fabric w/ teal, pink or red, and black
-Teapot trivet w/ tea cups in bright teal, pink, white & black
-Earring holder to hang on the wall- mesh with dark cherry wood frame OR metal frame in the shape of a bird or tree. (at least 8x10, preferably larger because I have a LOT of earrings and I plan on making more)
-Christmas Ornaments: Fire Engine, Mario themed, Batman, Spiderman, Heart, Bird(s), Teapot and/or teacup & saucer.  Preferably not glass- with my 2 year old and 2 cats and a dog, I dont think it would end well. ; )
-Wallet- the style that I want is on my wist. 
- Sturdy Messenger bag with padded back and pockets and adjustable strap.  Like a laptop bag, but it doesnt have to be THAT big because its for my nook and other smaller items.  I would like it in either stabilized cotton or a pretty upholstery fabric- lined of course.  : ) with a button or zip closure- no Velcro please because my hair ALWAYS manages to get stuck in velcro
-French inspired wall art for my guest bedroom.  Id like something other than the Eiffel tower because I already have a picture of it.  Maybe a caf scene or French words or French poodle or whatever else you can come up with. The main colors Im decorating with are a deep red and black, but dusty rose and light olive green would match too.
-Adjustable collars with bells for my cats- Zoe and Aneyla- I really like the ones that have the buckle like wal-mart shopping carts. 
-A fairy, mermaid, historical (Victorian or Renaissance) or Steampunk poppet.
-Tabletop Ironing mat- in bright colors
-Harvest moon pendant
-Big dangly earrings
-Hand puppets - a long-fur monster (in blue or red or lime green) a dragon, a lion, a tiger or a monkey or the Cat in the Hat

Supply List
-Fabric any kind, shape or size.  Id really like fat quarters or bigger, but it doesnt have to be. 
-Embroidery patterns- (for hand embroidery) pretty much any.  Id like teapots, French inspired, Japanese, peacocks, owls/birds or any that you would like to pass along.
-Felting yarn- Ive always wanted to felt a knitted project but I cant ever find the right yarn.  Id  like any bright colors or variegated
-Charms for earrings (sets of two)
-Glass beads
-BUTTONS, especially the ones with the little loop underneath because I want to cover them with fabric- the bigger the better.
-Polymer Clay/Fimo clay
-A poppet making kit


-Book on how to do Peyote stitch
-Books on how to make earrings
-Any craft magazines: quilting, knitting, sewing or beading/jewelry

I claim Vdbonnett for some fabric & maybe a Christmas ornament or two.

1st claim this round; 0 sent; 0 received.

I'm Sarah & I'm a stay-at-home mom in Chicago. I have 2 sons: Cooper, almost 3, & Dexter, almost 1. In my previous life I was a lawyer for abused & neglected kids & someday maybe I'll do that again. We're currently trying to sell our house to move about two hours away, but aren't having much luck yet because of the crappy housing market. Unfortunately, my husband already took a job there so he's been commuting 4 hours a day for almost a year. We've had a rough year to say the least! Husband gone a lot + 2 toddlers (who are terrible sleepers on top of everything!) + keeping the house clean for showings = one stressed out mommy! Luckily, crafting is my escape so I do it whenever I can. Smiley I also love spending time outside with my kids - we go to the zoo regularly, go on picnics a couple times a week, & spend time in the yard or park whenever we can. I'm a proud & public extended breastfeeding mommy and we use cloth diapers. In general, I try to be as green (& frugal) as possible. If I had any more free time I would enjoy cooking & reading, but it's been a while since I've had any real time for either of those!

I love orange. I'm not a huge fan of purple. I like everything else. I probably don't like neons too much. I LOVE batik & ombre stuff. I have way too many, but I still adore bags. I dont carry a regular purse, but I adore messenger style bags. I love Dr. Seuss (especially Oh, The Places You'll Go) & I really like whimsical designs. I prefer useful items to knick knacks, especially because we're trying to declutter in preparation for moving.

I'm starting to collect gifts for my sons' birthdays (both are in October) as well as gifts for Christmas, so some of the stuff on my list is for gifts, but most of it is stuff for me 'cause I've had a rough year & I deserve it!! LOL

We have no allergies, but I get migraines from cigarette smoke so I'm very sensitive to that. Other than that, I try to avoid nuts & artificial sweeteners, and the smell of patchoulli & vanilla (although I don't imagine any of that would be an issue!).

I put items of all different sizes on here 'cause #1 I don't always know what size it is, especially if it's not a craft I do normally, & #2 I figure I have enough of a selection that someone can pick & choose what they want. (Who knows? Maybe someone's really dying to make me a large item! LOL)


***SUPER BIG WISH*** a shrug similar to these
The brown one is most like what Im looking for, but maybe something less bulky & more fitted (maybe stretchy).

**Big wish** This skirt
I like the quote on it or you could PM me if you wanna make it & Ill think of others I like. Im open to suggestions too!

* Monster hats, horns, or tails. (Not necessarily exactly like the links, but that's what I'm using for inspiration!) Cute, not scary. I'm planning a monster themed party for Cooper's 3rd/Dexter's 1st birthday & I want to give out hats/horns & tails to all the kids (probably 12, ranging in age from 1 to 4 years old) as favors & to wear at the party. I'm planning on making them all, but if you wanna make a couple for me that would be great! I'm going for variety & safety (since all the kids are so young!)

* Any other cute monster item(s) you think I could use for a 1st/3rd monster-themed birthday party. PLEASE PM me with your idea/plan before claiming me to make sure I can use it Smiley

* Kids coat rack or hangers. I adore this.

* Kids storage/organization stuff. I adore everything on this site (but not the pink girly stuff).

* Any of the clothes for me that I have on my wist. I love them all & I'm finally back to pre-baby weight & new clothes to celebrate that would be great!

* I could really use a nice wallet. I have several on my wist. I really need one that will hold LOTS of cards & stuff.

* Baskets for storage (or anything for storage really!) - fabric baskets, or coiled fabric or plarn, or anything else you can come up with. They'll be for my crafting items or kids' toys so colors/designs for me or kids are great. I'd really like one that's boyish or gender neutral that says "no-no basket" or "penalty bin" or something like that for toys I have to take away for the day (my son has a habit of throwing toys so anything thrown gets confiscated for the day!)

* Natural moth balls. Theres a tutorial here and some on Etsy here, but Im fine with any version (as long as it works!).

* A gift for my brother (for Christmas) - Id love something inspired by the Old Spice commercials, or possibly the most interesting man in the world, or Chuck Norris. An Amigurumi character would be great.

* Educational or imaginative games/toys for the kids. Cooper always loves the alphabet & animals & is currently obsessed with maps. We love The Hungry Little Caterpillar & books by Sandra Boynton, particularly the little Pookie books, so anything inspired by those would be great.

* Dress up items for Cooper (& eventually Dexter). We already have a superhero cape & an apron. Playsilks would be great too.

* A medical alert bracelet or tag for my husband, who has Type 2 Diabetes. This one is cool.

* Anything on my wist. I also have stuff in my Etsy favorites & favorite projects in my profile.

NEW * Handknit socks (size 9)

NEW * Hand spun/hand dyed yarn (I'm just starting to crochet!)

NEW * Tie dye socks (shoe size 9, preferably rainbow)

NEW * Removable crochet stitch markers

NEW * Polymer clay wrapped crochet hooks (any size)

NEW * Project bag for crochet - I love the style of this one (although I don't like the fabric)

NEW * A busy book for my soon-to-be-1-year-old son Dexter (Cooper has a personalized one already & we have another one too & love them both. We can't get enough!)


NEW * Beginner crochet kit
* Yarn - preferably natural fibers. I'm just starting to crochet so any crochet supplies are appreciated. Smiley
* Medium/heavy weight iron on interfacing
* Knit fabric. Maybe jersey or interlock, but anythings probably good. I prefer solid, darker colors. Black or grey would be great.
* Anything for storage of sewing supplies. I have lots of ribbon (on spools & loose), thread, elastic, zippers, velcro, & other odds & ends that need spiffy new (or new to me) homes.
* snap press (used is fine!)
* zippers
* Grommet punch  & grommets


* Clear plastic bags from packages of bedding, onesies, shower curtains,etc. I plan to use them as project bags.
* Pink grapefruit tea
* Hot chocolate (I dont like dark or white chocolate)
* Candy - anything that's not hot. I also like milk chocolate (I dont like dark or white chocolate)
* Good diabetic recipes (basically low cal, low fat, low carb, and no artificial sweeteners); we just found out DH has Type II Diabetes
* Bento stuff - boxes or accessories
* used or thrift clothing with fabric I can use (interesting  prints or textures)
* fabric scraps

THANKS! Smiley

This is my 1st claim; Ive sent 0 and received 0.

They call me Ishmael (but my name is Kate). I am addicted to crafts and crafty things; I am also fond of crafty people. I dont have any favorite colors per say; most of my wardrobe is black and brown as I travel a lot and need easily coordinate-able clothing. I do like smokey/silvery gray, mustard yellow, and most blues and greens. I do not like maroon. I have two great kids (girl-1, boy-3.5) and a pretty cool husband. Im not a fan of knick knacks but do like other peoples garden gnomes.
