Hey there! Im Lisa and Ill be 41 on the 4th (tomorrow!).  I live in Cincinnati Ohio with my husband and two children (a 6yo boy and a 4yo girl). We also share a house with my in-laws. Yes, thats right, I LIVE with my mother in law. Crazy huh? It actually works out really well though. They have a separate suite and we share the kitchen/living room areas. I have wanted to do this swap for a couple of years, but always forget until its late in the month.something about the beginning of a New Year always finds me busy. I love that my birthday is at the beginning of the year. It really IS a new year for me.

Likes: Nature so green is my favorite color in pretty much any shade. I love trees, leaves, and flowers. I also love dragonflies and butterflies, song birds, small animals. Ive been a little obsessed with red foxes after seeing a pair in our backyard last year. Our backyard! In the middle of the burbs in a city! They were beautiful.
Dislikes profanity, vulgarity, violence. Im not into zombies, monsters, tattoos, Day of the Dead kind of stuff (I admire it from afar but it doesnt fit my style).
I have a wist :  http://www.wists.com/llisaredd
I also have a blog set up to help out swap partners. It repeats a lot of the information from above, but there is more information on there.  http://llisaredd-craftster.blogspot.com/  (Just realized I need to update some of that information.)
I also have an etsy favorites but I havent updated it in awhile : http://www.etsy.com/people/llisaredd/favorites/items.rss
Allergies:  Cigarette smoke and mold

Crafted things I would love to receive:
A surprise from my wist
A surprise from stalking me
Knitted dishcloths/washcloths we use these all the time in the kitchen. Id also like to get some for my bathroom.
Knitted slippers  - Im a size 10 (US)
A knitted or crocheted dressy scarf (not for keeping warm outdoors, but for wearing inside with clothing) something lacy would be lovely. Id prefer neutral colors (black, beige, brown, green) so I could wear it with more, but really, any color(s) would be MUCH appreciated. Thank you Miss Barbara  Grin
A messenger style bag/purse  
A stenciled tshirt with one of my favorite things. I have several on my wists. Pm me for sizes.
Small bags to go into my purse to organize things
A magic yarn ball would be fun Thank you PirateColey!
An embroidery hoopla I have one on my wists of a cat and I would love one of my cat. If youre interested in this let me know and Ill send you pictures of her. Shes 14 and my furry baby. If youd rather not do a cat, any nature theme would also be loved.
Headbands I have a big headas in circumference and have a hard time finding a headband that fits.
Barrettes I have thick (as in a lot of) hair and its hard to find barrettes that will hold my hair. Id love some pretty ones rather than just using a million bobby pins.
Handmade cards Id love these for gifts, or notecards (so blank inside would probably be best)
Handmade stamps Id anything in my nature themes

Supplies I would love to receive:
Buttons any size or kind. I would LOVE some handmade ones.
Paper any kind, any size (even scraps since I love inchies)
Yarn in natural fiber I am not a yarn snob, but I have lots of various acrylics/blends. Id love more cotton and wool or even bamboo.
Wooden or bamboo knitting needles I have several metal needles but only I set in bamboo (size 5US)
Roving for spinning. I have some, but want more as I WILL learn to spin this year.

Extras that would tickly my fancy:
Dark chocolate is a dietary requirement. Right?
Post cards from your hometown or area
Tea Ive never met a tea I didnt like
Pattern books knitting stitches or pattern books, quilting books, general crafting books anything like that. 2nd hand is fine.
Gum and hard candies are great
Green inchies Im doing a large project of green inchies and I would love to have some from this swap
Seeds we garden and I would love some heirloom tomatoes and sunflowers this year. Any other kind of odd/fun seeds would also be great.

Hello January Babes!!

My name is Amy, I will be 24 on the 25th of January.

Sewing is my favourite craft, I am a vegetarian, I have a kitty named Della, I love bright fun colours, I sometimes dance in front of the mirror, and always sing in the shower. I Love to travel whenever I can. I've been to the Caribbean, Alaska, India, Nepal, and am planning to go to Japan this year. I love nature and I hate pavement, I still go to the park to fly on the swings, and when my boyfriend surprises me with an evening out I get giddy.

Here's my list! I've put a link under each thing simply as an example.
Please message me with any questions, I'm totally happy to talk!

Medium Items:

My biggest want I've been wanting for years... A Petticoat! I love that 1950's fullness!

A yarn bell.

Math Clock

Thread Catcher

Any jewelry made out of old camera guts.

Ipod Case. I have the Nano 3rd Generation.

My name is Leigh-Ann and I live in Florida.  I turned 25 on Jan 3rd and I feel so old!  Ive already been married, had a son (he is 3.5 already!), and gotten divorced.  Im single, live with my parents and am still in college.  So feeling kinda pathetic right now.  

I love traveling, skiing, the beach, the ocean, sewing,  FABRIC of any kind, my SON (Levi), bright fun colors, batiks, anything that smells good!  I really like to get things in the mail, and honestly I am not super picky on anything.  If you look at my wists you get a pretty good idea of things I like!  

I dont like: camouflage, red/white/blue combo, pastel colors, lace, grandma florals or grandma smells, anything with TV/movie characters (we dont do TV for my son), Also, for anything for Levi, please no super boy themes like dinosaurs, trucks, sports, fireman and that kind of thing, he doesnt like any of that.

My son and I are both very allergic to smoke.  

Wish list:

camera bag for for my new camera, its a bigger one like this: http://www.techdigest.tv/2008/02/kodak_easyshare_1.html   Id love something I can use while traveling too (so protective), and durable fabric in fun bright colors
camera strap for the same camera
case/cover/sleeve for 15 macbook laptop, just something simple to protect it when its in my bag, Ive seen both sewn ones and knit/crochet
bag to hold laptop, a text book and a notebook, plus small stuff (like pens, phone etc) for college
coin purse to live in my purse, something small, bright colored, maybe a fun shape.  
skiing themed screen print shirt, prefer a tank top or fitted v-neck, size xs.  Would LOVE one for my son in 3T or even 4T, he is my awesome little skiier!  These chairlift shirts are really cool: http://www.etsy.com/search_results.php?search_query=chairlift&search_type=handmade
knit pants for my son in 3T (I can measure him), in bright colors (maybe shades of blue/green, rainbow, or red/orange/yellow... anything really would be fine), like longies that people use for cloth diapering, except he is potty trained so doesnt need diaper butt room.
sewing themed wall art, maybe something that says right sides together with an old singer sewing machine on it, open to any fun idea though, it would live above my sewing machine table.
stamp that says please recycle this packaging with a recycle symbol (or something else along those lines)
toiletry case for traveling with (to hold toothbrush, paste, chapstick, deodorant, and a few other little things, would love one for my son too!)
mint scented bath stuff, prefer all natural (scrubs, soaps, lip stuff, etc)
fun scented body sprays (I like mint, cotton candy, vanilla, or anything kids would choose!)
scented candles or wax tarts, any fun scents (other than no musky scents please)
a boy doll for Levi, not a baby but a kid preferably with curly hair!
ocean theme or batik fabric pillowcases (I have one of those long style pillows and 2 regular ones)
Fun wall clock, either ocean/beachy theme, or sewing theme
crochet or knit top, or a tank top embellished with crochet at the top, no particular idea in mind, so whatever you think would look good.  Im an xs, and small chested.
embellished hoodie in size small or xs, in any theme you think Id like, I can give you some ideas or just pick for me!
Fun but functional hot pads/oven mits
body spray in fun scents - I like mint, cotton candy, coconut, citrus... other stuff too
dresses/skirts/shorts in size 0/xs (I can provide measurements), nothing specific, I wear all kinds of clothes, so if you can come up with something fun that would be great!  
twirl skirt, I just added one to my wists.  Any fun color combo you have on-hand is fine
Bath bombs, preferably without color and scented with essential oils (fragrance oil is ok too, but let me know b/c Levi is allergic!) Here is a tute for those: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=203285.0

My wists:

Hey guys! I'm a little late on the wagon, but here goes! My name is Brittany, and I turned 20 on January 17th. I live in Idaho, originally from Anchorage, AK, not currently in school but am studying Psychology when I go back to school next fall. No kids or significant other right now, but I have a kitty named Santana. In my spare time I work as a manager at McDonalds, perform at/attend drag shows, do zombie make-up, and of course, craft! I like to knit, crochet, scrapbook, use polymer clay, looooove cross stitch/embroidery. I am also a big hippie on the inside and sometimes out. I have an unhealthy addiction to tie-dye and have tie-dyed everything from my undergarments to my bedsheets.

My favorite colors are green, purple, teal, and....hmm. I think thats about it. Not really any that I don't like, I love the rainbows, hence my drag show past.

Favorite shows are Invader Zim (love Gir!), House (Hugh Laurie is a sexxxxy man), Glee (I have a weak spot for showtunes), and DEXTER.

Themes: Earthy, nature, trees, owls, birds, feathers, ZOMBIES, Elvis, Bob Dylan, The Breakfast Club, rainbows, Kawaii, steampunk, plants, Zodiac (love me some Capricorns!), recycled, Harry Potter, vintage, horror/Saw, dragons, octopus', rockabilly, anything from my wist Smiley

Please no: earrings (I have no piercings, only tattoos), religious items

Wist: www.wists.com/omg_healz

Crafty Items I'd loooove:
-An amigurumi, I'd like a Gir one (on my wist), or a zombie one would be super cool.
-A murloc from World of Warcraft, not picky on the medium. I have a murloc thing.
-An earflap hat, no pompoms please
-Hair flowers, either fake flowers or some fabric ones. I love to spice up my outfits for work with them. My manager uniforms are black, yellow, or blue. Thanks goldsheepbowl!
-Anything steampunk related, I'd love a pendant. I've been trying to make one with poly clay for so long.
-An anatomical heart pendant
-A laptop sleeve, with any theme from above. I can give you measurements.
-Tie-dyed stuff Cheesy
-An altered puzzle!
-An ear wrap would be really cool for the drag shows. I can link you pictures if you would like.
-Scarves are always appreciated. 'Tis cold in this place I call home.
-A reusuable bag to take my lunch in for work. Big Macs and fries are only good after the first three years.
-A sock monkey, but mebbe a zombie one! Thanks goldsheepbowl!-A hoopla to start my collection. I've become addicted!
-I would love another apron to add to my collection, preferrably a full length one, not a halfsie.
-Charm bracelets or hemp jewelry
-I love anything creepy cute. Dolls, pictures, etc. Creepy is my favorite.
-I've been looking for a jewelry box for ages, that fits my taste. No luck Sad
-Last but definitely not least, I'd like to get a knitting needle/crochet hook holder. I had an awesome one made for me last swap, but someone stole it Sad

Supplies I'd loooove
-Scrapbook supplies: pens, tape runners, and foam dots are what I use the most of. Random papers and cardstock are my favorite, and I love stamps and embellishments. Not much on the vellum though.
-Spare knitting needles. Mine ALWAYS go missing.
-Safety pins
-Beads for hemp jewelry, or cool pendants
-Sewing supplies. I just bought my first sewing box!
-Polymer clay tools and embellishments. I also wouldn't mind giving a tissue blade a new home.

-Gum, minty is lovely
-Breath mints
-Tea, I'm always looking for new kinds!
-Recipes, I'm working on moving out again and I have no idea how to cook. Eeek!
-Sharpies (love the clicky ones!) and Expos for work.
-Cool lighters
-Scentless, small lotions/body wash, I can't find ANY in town and I need them for tattoo care. Silly people with their fragrances.

Thanks guys, happy birthday to us!

My whipped ice dairy drink brings the attention of many males to my place of residence and/ or employment, and they declare that its quality far surpasses that of yours. Absolutely, it far surpasses yours. I could convey to you the recipe, but i would have to demand compensation.
I'm one crazy broad!
