When you PM the orgs you MUST have the name of the swap and the claim name and date
This is VERY IMPORTANT from now on!!! No More Slacking off my peeps  Wink
I.E.  Sally ----> Suzy for a blah blah due out Jan 1

I love to org this swap but in the middle it gets harder to deal with looking this and that and changing if you want to play here you must send your info to me like this!!! THIS IS A RULE not an option for you to maybe do or not!!!

MAKE SURE YOUR LIST IS MED as there are too many EXlarge items asked for. It is a MED swap and we need to remember that..If you ask for to many Mega items I will PM and ask you to remove them and or add a MIN of 8 true MED!!!

for this swap a MED By SIZE it is 2 OR more craft hours ( this is not cooking time, drying time, waiting around for something to set up.......it is craft time for the average crafter)

By Price is MIN 20.00-30.00 or more



When sending PMs, please label them as OWS 66 with one of the following tags:
Package sent
Package received

So when sending the questionnaire, the subject will read OWS 66 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 65.

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 at a time until your crafts are 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 AND you have confirmation they have, 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.

YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS (14 days)TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR.This starts from the day you claim

( the medium can be a couple small items etc as long as it adds up to a medium )
( A medium item equals a MIN of two hours of crafting time or $20-30 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

- a fleece bunny scarf in light blue for Lana.

I claim atsuko for zippered pouches and supplies.

This is my 1st OWS claim ever, with 0 outstanding, 0 sent, and 0 received.  Smiley

About me:  I'm 30 years old, and I live in Toronto, Canada.  I have no allergies, but I'm not a big fan of cigarette smoke.  DFH and I live in a suburban apartment with our two kitties. 

Favourite colours are turquoise/sea blue, jade green, and gold, with a healthy dose of black, white, grey and silver... but there aren't any colours I dislike except for bright neon or bright primary colours.  I'm getting married this fall, and our colours will be Red and Gold (good fortune Chinese colours).  Although I've been working on updating my wist and profile, I have a ton of different hobbies and interests, so here are some more themes I like:

Canadiana (not like maple leafs and flags, more like historic Canadian icons, HBC, cottage life, northern rural crafts and antiques, birch bark, modern Canadian graphics from the centennial years, and Douglas Coupland's art)
Children's book fantasy images
Antiques, Found Objects, reclaimed wood, Historical nautical motifs (schooners, log books, old nautical trinkets)

My Wishes:

A padded tenor ukelele bag/case like this (pm me for dimensions)
A menswear-inspired black or charcol grey messenger bag.
A tea cozy  (geek/sci theme would be awesome)
Oven mitts  (geek/sci theme would be awesome)
A pair of "K" and "M" scrabble cushions
Homemade body butter, lip balms, & lotion bars. (fav scents are rosewater, citrus, and berry)
Water bottle carrier with a strap and pockets for keys/phone/etc.
Some sort of gym organizer wallet/journal thingy with a small notebook of blank training logs for NROL4W, place to hold a pen or pencil, a pocket for index cards, and a loop or D-ring for a carabiner clip.
A knee-length house coat or bath robe for me
Protective case for my Sony Reader touch (Dimensions are Approx. 6.61 x 4.68 x 0.38 inches (H/W/D))
Armband for working out with my Ipod nano (5th Gen)
A thread catcher for my sewing table
Bella mittens
A slouchy touque (hat)
reusable "paper" towels
a drapey knit cowl with a large cable pattern
dust cover for my serger
pottery - a mug, bowl, butter dish... anything, really.
A silver charm bracelet (doesn't have to be full of charms, I'd like to start collecting and making charms to add)
Art - lino or photography prints
Cotton face scrubbies, wash cloths and/or reusable cotton facial pads (for toner and eye makeup remover)
Tree of life pendant
A white, cream, or black Anthropologie-inspired top or blouse that is big enough to fit me. (XL - pm me for measurements)
A black or navy bias/a-line skirt (XL - pm me for measurements)
A bold necklace that would dress up the boring, all-black wardrobe I have to wear at work.  I love necklaces that feature reclaimed trinkets, kinda steampunk-style but less industrial.
Hand crafted chopsticks
Crafted bento (lunchbox) goodies to help me bring my lunch to work every day (like a bento box, reusable snack and sandwich bags, salad dressing container, cutlery holder/roll, or some other nifty lunch goodies) -- just not a lunch bag, because I already have one I use every day.
Note Cards (I'm getting married in the fall, so I need thank-you cards!)
A guest book for our wedding
A surprise

Wool Felt
Needle felting stuff (I'd like to learn how)
Fat Quarters or Jelly Rolls (Especially pretty Japanese and modern prints in Black, Blue, Turquoise, or Green)
Jewelry supplies (Another craft I'd like to learn... I have some tools, but no idea where to start)
Book binding kit + instructions (Another craft I'd love to learn)
Sea Glass
Purse findings/hardware
Natural fibre yarn
Bamboo knitting needles (Yet another thing I want to learn)
Stamps, stamp pads

Ideas for Extras:
Candy: Botan Rice Candy, Haribo Gummi candies, fruit leather, Fruit Roll-ups (I can't find them where I live, and they're my favourite evil sugar treat!)
Loose Tea: Fruity, herbal, white, green, jasmine...
Back issues of Threads magazine
Yummy protein/energy bars or recipes (I looooove LaraBars, so if you have a recipe for something similar I would love you forever. Even a recipe for high protein, high fibre, low G.I. trail mix cookies would be awesome for a post-workout snack.)
Jams, jellies or preserves (just about any kind of fruit... even apple butter would be lovely.  Lower in refined sugar is awesome).  I'm always looking for fruity jams to add to my plain yogurt.

I'll claim for cricket416  Tree of life pendant!

First Claim of 2011. Grin

About Me
33 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats.
  • My favorite colors are jewel tones (like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber) or earth tones (like greens/browns together).
  • My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy.
  • My favorite colors for shirts/clothes are browns, greens, purples, and both heather and charcoal greys.
  • I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together
  • I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.)
  • My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes.
  • My favorite flower is the Daffodil.
  • My favorite hobbies include: reading, photography and I love all things Disney!

I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.

Crafty Wishes

 Grin = BIG WISH!

NEW -- Grin Grin Nook cover! I like this style a lot. I got a regular Nook (NOT nook color) for Christmas and I'd like some cases! I put some fabric examples and such here and some here for fabric inspiration ideas.

NEW -- Grin Coupon Organizer. I always have coupons but they get lost in my purse. I LOVE this style. Small enough to fit in my purse but with sections would be great.

 -- Grin  A Lapboard I really need a new one. Something comfy so I can use my heavy laptop on the couch more comfortably. I like this one a lot but it wouldn't have to be that exact color/fabric. Just the style is really useful.

   -- A Day Tote/Weekender Bag. There's not a thing I don't love about this one for example, but it could be in different fabrics of similar colors for example. It looks sturdy and says it has pockets and the shape is really lovely. I also really like this one which would be a lovely weekender bag since I don't own any luggage. And of course, Amy Butler's pattern is neat but it wouldn't have to be in her fabric.

 -- A simple robe. I really like this style. Doesn't have to be exactly like that but I like the Japanese/Asian/Cherry Blossom influence, but it could be other colors/patterns that I like as well. Doesn't need to be form-fitting, can be a little roomy just not too oversized. (A little roomy is fine.) I'm generally a US size 4.

 -- Any sewn wist item You can see all the sewing items I've wisted here.

Knitting & Crochet
NEW -- Cable Knit Fingerless Gloves. I love the color, the cable (I love cable!!) and the fact they're a soft acrylic for easy care. Yes please!! (Please note, I have tiny wrists - like 5.5" - so aim for small width please!)

 -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. There are some wisted here for inspiration. (And yes, thick ones for around the house are perfect too!)

 -- A cable knit bag. I really like cable knit and I think this bag is really cool.

 -- Any knitted wist items. You can see all the wisted knit items here.

--  Grin Batik/Dyed / "Shibori-Dyed" Fitted Tee Shirts Like above, short sleeve, 3/4 or long sleeve is fine so long as it's fitted. I like styles like THESE in my wists. I especially love the flame style one but really like this type of look a lot. It''s different from the shirts I typically wear and I like that. (Please just no hippie/Grateful Dead rainbow style tie dye. Nothing against hippies but it's just not my personal preference.)

 --  Fitted Style Tee Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. Fitted in V-neck, scoop or whatever (just nothing that's so low cut it requires another shirt underneath) in size small or US 4 equivalent. (I like the ones from Target a lot but am open to others too!) I have received a ton and I love them but I also live in fitted tees and more are always welcome. I have a bunch of styles I love WISTED for inspiration.

 --  Stained Glass Item - sun catcher, nightlight, glass mosaic item, etc. Anything! I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself. I have a wall of sliding glass doors and would love to put up something pretty there! (HERE are some I've wisted for inspiration/ideas.)

 --  Ceramic/pottery tea mug, oversized mug, or cereal bowl (I eat cereal every single day!) or anything like that. Again, a skill I don't have but really love. (HERE are a couple things I've wisted for inspiration.)

 --  Anything with a phoenix. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items as inspiration.

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists or my amazon wishlist, my etsy favorites, the colors I like, my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like! I KEEP MY WISTS UPDATED SO IF IT'S ON THE LIST, I WANT IT! Cheesy

Craft Supplies
--  Grin Grin Jewelry Presentation Displays I have one in black but I desperately need a necklace one in WHITE for photographing my work. I could also use a necklace/earring combo and a bracelet hand. Used ones in good shape are fine too! Any kind of leather/leatherette/vinyl is awesome. These are examples of styles I like and could REALLY use:
 - Simple Necklace: Display, necklace, leatherette, white, 10x8 inches
 - Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, necklace/earring, frosted acrylic
 - Another Fancier Necklace/Earrings: Display, Venus figure, opaque white, 12 x 8-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches
 - Ring/Bracelet Display, acrylic, clear frosted, 7-1/4 x 4-1/2 x 3 inch hand

 -- Grin Grin Gemstone Beads I'd love to use more faceted, briolette and other cut stones. Here are some I really am coveting.
(Listings shown are just for example of the stone. Can easily be smaller quantities for more reasonable cost!)
 - Any gems on my Etsy favorites - Bunches listed here
 -Chrome Diopside Beads - Especially teardrops or briolettes or rondelles would be nice. Example
 - Mexican Fire Opal Rondelle Beads - example or example
 - Hesonite Garnet - example
 - Sapphire Rondelle Beads - In a red/orange/yellow combo. example or example

 -- A sewing basket. You know, classic little box with a handle to store my growing collection of threads, notions, scissors, etc. Like this idea/ or this one. Doesn't have to be that fabric or anything but that idea. Right now, all my stuff is just piled up in a mess on my desk.

  -- Mini Cake Pans. How cute are these? I don't know that I *need* them per se, but they're just so darn fun.

 -- Lampwork beads. Love. Wish I could make but I''m too scared of open flame. Cheesy

 -- Dichroic Glass Beads I love this mix for example. So pretty!

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such. Also, I love Swarovski crystal and any 16, 22 or 24 gauge wire is in any color is always useful. (Especially if it's silver-plated!) The Artistic Wire brand is my favorite.

NEW -- Ninja Men Cookie Cutters. OMG, how freakin' awesome are these???

NEW -- Jewelry Hammer and Mini Anvil Set Now that I'm working with wire more, I'd love a jewelry hammer and anvil to flatten my wire and shape it with more control. Hammer example and anvil example. Obviously a mini anvil! Wink

NEW --  Grin Puffy Heart Pendant Instructions/Kit I've wanted to learn how to make this forever! Bonus would be if I had some of the materials needed as well like the stringing material. There's a full kit HERE and another HERE which is totally helpful and even more awesome!!

NEW -- Button Maker I think it'd be fun to make my own buttons. Some sort of starter kit would be great. I've never made any before. Can totally be used/pre-owned!


 -- Tea! Especially fruity ones. (Caffeinated ones are fine too for my morning cup at work!)
 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.
 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)
 -- Pineapple anything so long as it does NOT have coconut in it. (Candy, snacks, candles, body spray, etc.) Finding pure, straight pineapple is so hard!
 -- Beading/Wire-Wrapping/Jewelry magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)

Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

I claim phoenixfiredesigns for a wist/phoenix surprise...

1rst claim, 0 sent, 0 received

Hi my name is Chris.  Im 34 and I live in Alaska with my husband, 2 dogs, and cat.  I love the outdoors and spend a lot of time outside hiking, fishing, skiing, kayaking, etc.  I love to bring the outdoors inside with nature themed art and colors.  I love greens, browns, fall colors in reds, orange, dark yellows.  Favorite animals are otters, foxes, and all kinds of birds.  I also like sea crittersnot so much fish but seahorses, jellyfish, squid, crabs, seaweed.  Im not allergic to anything but really hate the smell of cigarette smoke.

I have a pretty extensive wist and do keep it up to date.  Id love anything from it or inspired by something on it.

Crafty items

- A cover for my new Kindle (Version 3). I prefer the notebook style like these
(fyi, love patterns/colors on the 1st on but not so much the second) rather than the sleeve. New version is smaller than the older version so if you use a purchased pattern please check the size.

- An ironing mat (a large one around 36 x 20 would fit my table well but smaller is ok)

- Dog dish mat.  Our new rescue lab is a messy drinker so something to help contain all the water splashes would be great.  Needs to be about 12 wide to fit in the feeding area.  Length is less important maybe around 20.  The dogs are both labs one fox red the other black.

- Knitting stitch markers.  Im open to almost anything for thesesurprise me.

- Knitting needle case/holder/roll. 

- Sea creature stuffies or amigurumi.  Would love anything with tentacles, weird or unusual fish (puffer fish, anglerfish, etc), nautilus, crab, sea slugs (nudibrach), seahorses, corals, jellyfish, etc.

Help me decorate my craft room.  The walls are an apple green.  The furniture is dark brown and white.  Im using these colors with splashes of orange and rusts.  Some pics of the craft room organizers and idea of color schemes  here and here

-  Pillowsabove colors and themes.  I have a tan futon in the craft room and need to add some pillows for comfort and to give it some color.  I want a few bolster type pillows for the arms and lots of various sized square and rectangle.  Really Id be happy with any size shape. 

-  Wall art I would love some art to hang on my walls.  I love lots of the animal and botanical prints on vintageprintable.com site.  Would LOVE, LOVE something using these nudibrach (seaslug)  images or the 1st two images on this page or really any of the Haeckel prints or  jellyfish prints.  A few of these nicely printed and framed would be fantastic. I also really like wood block/altered paper type art.  I always like embroidered wall hangings as well.  Or get creative.   There are several examples of things I like on my Wist. 

-  Print/stencil t- shirts womens size XL (or XXL if sizes run small) preferred colors: brown, dark red/maroon, rust, dark orange, greens (lime, apple, sage).  Bird or animal designs, trees, leaves, etc.  Also love geek/science themes such as molecules, cells, etc. See wists for some examples.  I tend to like v- necks better but any style collar is ok.  Have some great ones from puzzler but can always use more in other colors/designs.  Long-sleeved would be great for this time of year.

-Stencil lounge pants size misses XXL or womens 1Xsame themes as t-shirts above in black, brown, or grays. 

-  Knit or crochet slippers, nice and thick (wool is great) to keep my toes warm on those cold Alaska days. I like the Mary Jane and ballet styles.  I wear a womans size 8 shoe. Again see Wist for examples of styles I like.

-  Reusable cloth menstrual pads.  Mostly panty liners like these but also a couple of longer overnight ones.

-BIG WISH- Soapmaking supplies or a learn to make soap kit.  Im not really interested in the melt and pourlooking for cold press soap.  This is actually for my husbandhe wants to learn to make soap and I want to encourage him to craft.  We dont have anything so any supplies and/or ingredients at all will be much appreciated (we do have a local source for lye and some very basic oils).   

- Knitting needles Im just learning to knit and only have a few needles so almost any size would be great (so far I have regular size 6 and 8 and dpns in smaller sizes 000-2, 4).  I prefer wood or bamboo.  I havent tried circular or magic loop methods yet but could be fun.

- Felt wool felt or eco felt (please no cheap acrylic felt sheets from the craft store).  I can use all colors. 

-  Embroidery pattern transfer paper or pens. 

-  Bias tape makers. Any size but   to 1 inch would probably get the most use

-  Serger thread cones in sets of 2-4 please.  Black, Brown, Tan, White, Greens

-  Pinking shears

-  Rotary cutter blades, regular and pinking (45 and/or 28mm size)

-  Fun modern material: fat quarters or charm packs would be awesome!  Quilting cotton.  I would love to have more modern fun prints like Amy Butler, Heather Ross, Michael Miller, etc.  I have some I like on my wist and on my  amazon wish list

-  Home dec weight material.  Bright modern prints or nature prints with leaves, trees, birds, etc.
- Glass eyes.  Small sizes from 3- 6mm.  Solid black or black w/clear iris or dog or cat irises in shades of brown and green.

-  Craft books/magazines:
I love the Ernst Haeckel art forms in nature type books and CDs.
An encyclopedia of embroidery stitches type book.
An encyclopedia of knitting stitches type book.
Embroidery pattern books
Any felting and/or fiber art books.

Buttons (all sizes and colors)
Ribbon (all sizes and colors)
Sewing, knitting, embroidery, or cooking magazines

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!! I am so glad to swap with you all this year 2011

  I will claim Chrissews for a stenciled long sleeve shirt Smiley and maybe a surprise if I have enough time Smiley


We live in the last bank of the outer banks of North Carolina in the USA. We are on Black Beard the pirates land too cool...We are very Pirate in this area. We hunt, fish a lot, and really have a lot of fun. We are an outdoorsy family and the grandkids love the beach and searching for treasure on it! We are raising the 2 grandkids, 3 dogs and fish... I don't let my health get me down and all and know I will beat cancer in 2011 and this will just be a bump in my road of life! I love to live life in the fast lane, yet small town ways in my big city love for life. I am living at the beach but cant wait to get back to the city again some time soon.We are Coast Guard and who knows where that will take my family in a few years!
  I am very edgy and girly at the same time. I love Pin up girls, sugar skulls, mermaids, pirates, and even mod but do not care for items that really have no use as I am really cramped here,
I don't ware dark colors too much and HATE neon Blah...I love pinks, sea green, light blue, yellow, white, lavender, off red not red red , sand, yellow, brown, blues to name a few just think beach girl but it is getting cold so the shoes are not flip flops for me now. Long sleeve large tops ( I love clean lines ) v or scoop neck, I am a ladys large not the skinny little jr. large I am a 12-14 top!

 Dislikes:Kelly green!! My grandson is Autistic and this color is OK as an accent but not as anything that has a lot of it or a shirt that sort of thing. I don't like Tyedye, Andy Warhol and neon, Hate puff 3-D paint and foil iron on's and most of all it makes me crazy when you get something that is made with pet hair dried into the paint creepy stuff there(yes it has happened that is how I know)

We have a MAJOR smoke allergy here so If you smoke inside please pass me by and if you smoke outside please wash hands before crafting it is not the smoke she is allergic to it is the tar like stuff that stays on the hands and we don't like smoke anyway ~gag~

I claim babalina58 for a bunch of supplies from her list Smiley
This is my 1st claim with 0 sent and 0 received.

My name is Mimi and I am a stay at home mom in West Palm Beach, FL.  I love practical, useful items for myself or for my 2 year old son, Sky.  Love nature and nature inspired items.  Favorite colors are green, blue and brown.  I also like red accents.  I really dislike pink and purple so please don't send either of those.  I am also not a fan of country, babyish or animal prints. 


T shirts - size medium, or large if they are fitted.  I like stenciled, screenprinted, dyed, or embroidered.Here are a few examples:http://www.etsy.com/listing/62908624/gift-sale-trees-tshirt-goth-graphic-tee

Artwork for my walls - I like anything nature inspired or funky.  Here is an example of something I like:

A car seat organizer - either the pattern or a finished one Smiley

Throw pillow covers!  I have size 18" and 14" pillows but an make other sizes to fit something different.  Here are a few I like:



Pottery - I like funky, different stuff.  Useful containers are always great!

Fun wooden signs:

Cloth napkins - stenciled, plain, whatever

Kitchen towels - decorated, embroidered or just dyed.  My kitchen is red with black counters and caramel cabinets.  I have unpaper towels in the MM mixer fabric and would love some fun towels to match!

Anything Thomas the Train oriented for my son - bags, things to store his trains in, etc.

Size 3T little boy shirts - stenciled or fun fabric

Reusable shopping bag

Knitted flowers for a bouquet I am working on - any colors, shapes and sizes

Handmade Christmas ornaments -  nothing religious please
