Hello!  I'm redpopsicles, and I'm in Oklahoma City, OK.


**V-neck t-shirt decorated with one of my likes, preferably in black or a dark color that liquid spills won't show up on too badly (PM for sizing)

**Necklaces (see Wist for examples and also here are some links)
-I would love something like any of these cameos, especially on some shorter-scale pieces:

**Tree of Life Pendant

**Zipper pouches

**Wrist Cuff

**Hair Accessories (except any kind of headband because they hurt my head...) Here are some examples of things I like:
-Even the rings on this post would make great hairclips https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=360591.0

**Homemade bath products: lotions, soaps, perfumes (solid or liquid), lip gloss/balm.  Scents I love are chocolate, fruits (strawberry, citrus, apple), sage, cucumber, green tea, chai, mint, eucalyptus...

**Handmade scented candles.  Candle scents I love are chocolate, hazelnut, strawberry, blueberry, mulberry, cranberry, raspberry, sage, rice flower, fresia, green tea, chai, mint, eucalyptus...

**A pair of pajama pants for my SO (I'm thinking just a standard men's large), who loves penguins, dragons/wizards/fantasy stuff, video games and the band Phish. I could make them, but he doesn't really understand the whole craft swap thing, so I thought he could be introduced best this way...

**A journal of any kind (lined or unlined pages) and 5x7-ish or bigger

**A new swap journal (I've used all the pages in mine) with spaces/lines for partner names, address, who is sending to you, etc.

**A small purse, maybe like 4x6-ish, with a long strap can wear like a messenger bag, preferably black with a design or something. I want something I can wear hands-free to hold only my keys, money, ID, etc., when I go out.

**Tabletop ironing mat with insulation enough to protect what is under it

**Something from my WIST


**Iron-on transfer pens in any and all colors, but especially white

**Dried herbs for use in soaps, bath sachets, incense, etc.

**White cotton v-neck or crewneck t-shirts (men's small or large, women's large or XL) that will be tie-dyed.

**Handspun or hand-dyed yarn

**Hair accessory blanks (either the bobby pin kind with the blank disc or the larger alligator kind that snap closed with a crimp on the bottom side, if you know what I'm talking about there...)

**Buttons - any colors, shapes, novelty, etc. (especially skulls, anchors, stars, horseshoes, mushrooms. stuff like that)

**Shrinky Dink plastic

**Felt in any color or pattern

**E-6000 glue

**Embroidery floss

**Introduction to Resin Kit


**4 miniature Rubix Cubes (I know it's kinda out-there, but I have this vision in my head and I have no idea where to get these little guys)

I'm 31, and I'm a bartender. My favorite colors are blues, greens, and any other ocean-y colors.  I also like black, brown, pink, red -- really anything but most oranges or yellows.  I love reading, and favorites include the Harry Potter series, the Dark Tower series (or anything Stephen King), Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan/The Hallows series, all Laurell K. Hamilton series (especially the Merry Gentry books), Gregory Macguire, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, Sylvia Plath, Bret Easton Ellis, Irving Welsh.  For music, I love P.J. Harvey, Radiohead, The Coathangers, Gogol Bordello, Elliott Smith, Bikini Kill (and anything Kathleen Hannah), Sleater-Kinney, the Ramones, the Clash, most things punk, The Decemberists, Arcade Fire, Bloc Party, Black Keys, Broken Bells, MIA, Amy Winehouse, and so many others. I love Phish! I consider my style to be a mix of a lot of things, influenced by punk, current trends, and really anything that strikes my fancy on a particular day. I really only wear t-shirts and jeans to work, so I pretty much do whatever I want in that arena. I do have really long hair, so I am in constant need of new and varied hair accessories. I wear a lot of pigtails, so I like smaller things in twos, but I also wear larger pieces by themselves.  I have 9 piercing and 5 tattoos (and still working on my tattoo collection!), and I love vintage tattoos.  I really love Piscean things.  Also, I love video games, especially original Nintendo stuff.  I'm into witchy and magical things, the moon, fish, skulls, pirates, Toulous-Lautrec, Edward Gorey, vintage music instruments and equipment, pin-ups, fairies, goddess mythology (many different pantheons), and if you need any more info, please send me a PM.

Thanks for looking!

About me:
-I live in Austin Texas now but I am from New Orleans and I miss everything about NOLA everyday!  I love all things New Orleans!!
-My favorite colors are green (chartreuse), yellow, orange and combinations of these!  I do not usually wear these colors, I dress in basic blacks, whites, brown and the like.  I usually try and accessorize with color in my bag, bracelets and my glasses are kind of fun too!
-I am a HUGE Audrey Hepburn fan!  I love her style and all of her movies!   My fave movie is Breakfast at Tiffanys and it is going to be showing at an old theater here on my Birthday!!!! That is where I will be for the day!  I am going to be making a vintage styled dress for the occasion!  Anything with her image on it would be coveted!!!
-One of my other favorite icons is Elvis.  There are several stuffies that have seen that I love and I usually dress like him on Halloween.

My Old Wist http://www.wists.com/nostephot

I have been away for a long time but I am looking forward to getting into swaps and everything craftster again!  I am open to personal swaps!  I would love to do one for Halloween!
« Reply #5 on: January 12, 2011 09:13:35 AM »

I'm Sarah & I'm a stay-at-home mom in Chicago. I have 2 sons: Cooper, 3, & Dexter, 1.

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 also love citrus (as food and as a theme or fabric). Id love anything for my kitchen to be citrus themed Smiley

We have no allergies, but I get migraines from cigarette smoke so I'm very sensitive to that.


***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). A large & simple stitch would be fine!

**Big wish**
* Kids coat rack (the kind that hang on the wall & have pegs or hooks). I adore this, but painted wood or something else would be great too.

* A weekly planner for 2011 Smiley

* Hobo gloves. I LOVE the ones ifalltheraindrops made in round 62; I love the long fingers and the length on the wrist Smiley

* Reusable "paper" towels - the kind that are flannel on one side & birdseye diaper cloth on the other; no snaps please! I'd love something citrus themed or orange-ish.

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

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

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

* 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 capes, an apron, and pirate accessories. Playsilks would be great too.

* Handknit socks (size 9)

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

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

* A personalized 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!)

* Anything from my wist!


* Pattern weights
* Solid color short sleeve button up boys shirts (hand-me-downs or thrifted are fine) in size 4T, XS or S. I plan to use them to make uniform shirts for me sons for dress up (police man, delivery man, etc)
* 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!)

THANKS! Smiley

Hello, my moniker is Lovesclutter, and I live in Knoxville, TN. I'm 55 years young (some days feelin' it). I will modify and add more as I look at other lists. One thing I do want to say is that if you are a SMOKER and /or have pets, THEN PICK ME. I'm always looking for other stinky people to swap with.  Grin I will list some things I have always admired on here:


Embroidery with the themes: humor, friendship, chocolate, coffee and hippie

Crochet or knit scarf or a rapunzel scarf

Earrings (no allergies)

Hair accessories

A resin pendant (content does not matter)

Any mixed media art piece for the wall, the more colors the better. This is my number one wish here.

Anything from my wists. www.wists.com/lovesclutter

Home made bath bombs (I like to soak)

A jar of whimseys

Supplies I could use

Permanent markers, any type of point and in any color

Dark Chocolate (my muse)

Yarn. I know that is wide open, but I'm needing to make a baby blanket, so anything to help me with that would be appreciated.

Regular cotton thread in white, black and offwhite. I always seem to be running out.

Buttons, I don't have much of a stash

About, I guess that my list isn't that long, but it would be nice to see what someone could make of this. I work full time, have 3 cats and two aging parents (not living with me but a lot of weekends out of town). This swap is just to lift my spirits mainly. I believe 2011 is going to be a banner year, and that all of you who need to do this swap will feel better to clear away any old negatives from previous years. Thanks. Terri

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!
« Reply #7 on: January 12, 2011 09:18:39 AM »

I have been down in the dumps (I've been sick for months); I love getting mail. I am sure anything you want to send will be wonderful. I hope you will pick me.

I live in Iowa with my boyfriend (of 6 years) and our small dog. My tastes are about the same as a 6 year old girl. I like pink girlie things.

-   Long patchwork skirt I would love to get a patchwork skirt for my mom. She wears an extra large. You could do it how ever you would like, but it does need to be long. She wont wear short skirts (even knee length), as she is very sensitive about her body.
-   Detroit Lions Vest   A Lions vest for my dad would be great. He wears a xxl.
-    Hand-dyed yarn or hand-spun yarn any color/amount/weight
-   Nightmare Before Christmas wallet/holder Based on this, but it would be better if it was to hold memory cards or money (or anything else you can think of) instead of tea.
-    Project Bag with lots of pockets
-    Anything Nightmare Before Christmas related For a friend. Clothing may not be the best, as Im not too sure on her sizes.
-    Flannel PJ Pants I wear a large. PM me if you want measurements.

-   Mug Bucket organizerSomething I can put my supplies in when I am working at my desk. I keep losing things. Something like this
-   tabletop ironing mat
-   UnPaper Towels. Reusable towels like this. You dont need to send a paper towel holder.
-     Cloth menstrual pads
-     Any yarn spinning supplies fiber, beginner books/videos, anything
-     Yarn Organizer
-     Scoodie no fleece please


-    Any fingering weight yarn
-    Any Stamp Carving Material Staedtler, speedy carve, extra large erasers, etc. My only option here is speedy carve but our Hobby Lobby is sold out a lot (they usually only have 1 or 2 in at a time). Anything would be great.  
-   Dyes [/color]  for cotton fabric/yarn
-    Stitch Holders
-    Beginner Knitting Books/leaflets/patterns
-    ANY DPNs  I have none
-    Zipper pouches small ones to put in my project bags. My favorite ones are 9x 4
-    Home made soap
-    Small tatted butterflies
-    Dryer Balls
-    Pet toys for my parents They foster animals. Any toys, security blankets, or anything else you could think of would be great. They usually foster 1 dog and 5-8 cats at a time.
-    Lion Brand Pound of Love I really need blue, but any color would be great
-    Any cotton yarn other than Sugar n Cream and Peaches n Cream. Cotton blends are good too.
-    Address Labels

You can also check out my wist for more ideas or  to get an idea of my style.

I would love to swap for things kids could do in the car on a long car trip (3 girls ages 5-12). I can knit, crochet or trade yarn.

Hi!  I'm Teresa from Georgia.  My list consists of things for not only myself but also lots of friends and family.  I love to use swaps to collect OOAK gifts for my favorite people.

My wist is extensive, up-to-date, and chock full of things I really really want.  Pick anything off there and you can't go wrong.  If you pick things from my wist, I do ask that you carefully read any tags and notes in case I've indicated a certain size or color for that item.

My list:


yoga socks!!!  I am in desperate need of yoga socks for my oldest daughter.  She wears a size 5 shoe and is tiny.  If you choose this, she has one pair that I can measure for you.  Any color is great.

scoodie  I desperately want a solid black scoodie with solid black satiny lining ( so my hair won't get staticy).  I prefer a fleece material for this.

trifold wallet in skull fabric (nothing girly).  The wallet should fit in a back pocket and have compartments for cash and cards

pincushion  I collect pincushions so anything goes.  There are many examples on my wist

plastic bag holder in bee fabric

embroidered piece framed in the wooden hoop   Lots of examples on my wist.  Please leave the hoop natural

an altered journal in any of these themes:  quotes, words, fonts, 70's fashion, wildflowers

yoga pants in size 2 any color any style

stuffed animal hammock in baby blue or white

full apron  in bee theme

fused glass dish  shades of green/cranberry  any size ( even teeny)

clothes for American Girl Doll  examples on my wist, but honestly I would be thrilled with anything at all, no matter how small or simple


knitting loom of any kind, any size (used is perfect)

weaving loom of any kind, any size (used is perrfect)

quilling supplies

embroidery hoops ( wooden or the plastic ones that look like wood)

silk embroidery floss ( I know this is a longshot)

bamboo dpn's  ( I have none, so any size would be great.  Used is perfect)

wool felt scraps  

glass or ceramic pieces for mosaics

Thanks for claiming me!

Hi! I'm SonjaBoo and I was once on the other side of this swap -- I was grateful for the opportunity to renew my good Craftster standing and have been happily swapping since! I hope that this brings you the same opportunity to jump back into the swing of things.

About me: My user profile (the cat) was the original SonjaBoo, and we lost her to kitty heaven this past weekend.  So if you are crafting for me and are inspired by black cats, please feel free to incorporate one in any project! We are missing her very much.  Other than that, I am a writer by trade, love travel, vintage things, strong colors like red, turquoise, purple, green, orange, fuschia, etc., and have a serious crafting addiction. Cheesy

Crafted items I would love:
Large-ish/Medium-ish (however you want to look at them!)

-I would love some reusable lunch bags -- especially snack sized ones.  I am in love with this set on Etsy:http://www.etsy.com/listing/61656901/lunch-bag-and-reusable-sandwich-bag-set

-Funky pillows/pillow cases (I can fit a pillow in them if that's easier for your shipping!)  Here's a few that I think are cute!

-This is very random, but I need a sugar bowl.  Preferably a bright color as our kitchen is quite blase at the moment.

-A fun half-apron! I can't sew worth beans, so anything sewn is amazing to me.

-Dishcloths/dishtowels/teatowels -- I love the towels that have the quilted strips across them.

-Wall art for my craft room

-A necklace like this (colors don't matter): http://www.etsy.com/listing/60775189/dharma-free-matching-earrings

-Address labels!  This is a huge wish for me.  Someone at Craftster once made me several sheets of address labels with awesome designs on them, and I am on my last sheet.  This would be wonderful!!!

-Some sort of quilted wall hanging for my craft room -- or a Teesha Moore inspired anything!  

-Shrines, altered art, any amazing work that you create

-Fingerless gloves (The longer kind that go up to my elbows. I'd love to wear these at work, so maybe a dark gray color?)

Smaller crafty goodness:

-Stationary -- I love notecards and such.
-A bean bag thingy that you can heat up in the microwave for back pain and the like
-A crafty coupon holder! I never have my coupons organized and my husband would really appreciate this.  Tongue
-ATCs, inchies, roundies, etc.
-matchbox shrines
-Fun necklaces or bracelets.  (I can't wear earrings, unforunately.)
-Jar of whimsies! Love them!!!

-Fiber! I love felting and spinning
-Doo-dads to use in altered art projects (tokens, tickets, game pieces, old things, etc.)
-Diamond glaze
-Small wreath forms (styrofoam)
-alcohol inks
-microscope slides
-vintage papers/fun papers

Thank you for considering me!  And best of luck in all your crafting!

Hello! I'm redflags, living in Warr Acres, Oklahoma with my husband and our three kids. I spend most of my time crafting and baking, so I love anything having to do with craft organization or useful items for my kitchen. I'm pretty easy to please  Smiley

Themes I like are fairy tales (especially Red Riding Hood and the Little Mermaid, although anything from Grimm or HC Andersen is great). I love earth tones, aqua, teal, robin's egg blue, bright pink, and dark grey. I don't like pastels, pale colors in general, and most shades of blue. I love floral prints, all things vintage and antique (pre-1960's), and typography.

I love anything having to do with Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, and The Munsters (especially Lily Munster).

See my pinterests for more ideas: http://pinterest.com/ninedays/

Crafted items:
- Project bag/caddy
- Messenger bag (the bigger the better)
- Slouchy knit or crochet hat (like this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/62640531/cable-fae-slouch-hat-pattern)
- Frankie Stein doll
- Full or half apron
- Oven mitts
- Wall art (painted, stitched, collaged, whatever) appropriate for the kitchen or dining room
- Cuff bracelets (I collect these so I'm easy to please, but I'm not afraid of big, bold, or over-the-top)
- Journal
- Rag rug
- Woodburned spoons like these: http://pinterest.com/pin/2260198/
- Folk art doll
- Embroidered or cross-stitched wall art
- Project basket (like this one: http://pinterest.com/pin/2311842/)
- Needle book
- Useful or decorative kitchen and dining room items
- Sewn fingerless gloves (like these: http://pinterest.com/pin/1753465/)
- Sewing organizer (like this one: http://pinterest.com/pin/1753476/)
- Necklace similar or in the spirit of this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/65137560/multi-layered-3-in-1-necklace-with-black
- Jars for sugar and pancake mix (like these: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_aDCnyPs488U/TFy2NcQ11EI/AAAAAAAAISI/JopxOJKt-28/s1600/decal13.jpg)

Hi, I'm tankrgrl and I live in Dover, DE Smiley My wist is up to date, I add new things to it all the time.
*I would love knit/ crochet scarves in earthtones, I don't really like pink, but purple is fine.
*an earflap hat, the chunkier the better, I am moving to Alaska in May and I will take all the warmth I can get
* scrap squares, knit or crochet in 7" square size, I am making my daughter a Ron Weasley style blanket and using the leftover bits of my yarn projects but with trying to get ready to move, babysitting my niece and having a 7 week old puppy...I don't have much time on my hands...chaotic life Smiley

*quilt squares, various materials anything with corduroys or velvets
*Star Wars stuff- the whole family has a small Star Wars obsession
*stitch markers in polymer clay, there were these:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=243146.0 and I love them...
*Anything Harry Potter related for my 7 yr old- she wants her new room to have a HP feel to it, so without being overly "witchy" we're trying to find subtle Hogwarts touches, battery tea lights, old looking books, a trunk to store her blankets, the quilt squares im looking for would be used to make a duvet cover for her comforter, a patchwork/ crazy quilt style
*knit socks I have size 6 feet
*Art work- I love birds, owls, forest scenes, I like mixed media stuff like that
*journals to write in/ create art in
*Knit mittens, every pair I have made so far has been for someone else and sadly I don't have time to make myself any..
*R2-D2 beanie for my 4 yr old- he wears a kids medium in hats- large noggin Smiley
*anything I can use in a mixed media journal
*messenger bag, medium to large- again earthtones, corduroys, fabrics like that
...I think that covers it, I am pretty happy with anything I can use or decorate with

Hi!  I'm Belladune.  I live in Canada.  I'm a SAHM with 3 wonderfully beautiful children aged 1(girl), 3(boy) and 5(boy). (yes, we are busy Smiley )   I have a wonderful husband who LOVES World of Warcraft.  The only colors I truly dislike are dark greens and burgundy.  And the only patterns I dislike are houndstooth,  and plaid.


Sewn Items:
~ Aprons!  any kind and style, I'm always in the kitchen, so I dirty them often
~ Buntings for my kids
~ storage bags for toys that have multiple pieces.  Fabric selection doesn't overly matter, just so long as they are varied in size
~ Felt food - My kids pretend to make cookies for me all the time, wouldn't it be nice for them to have "real" cookies to give me? Cheesy
~Mug rugs! 2 preferably- one for me, one for hubby.  

Knit/ Crochet:
~Flapper style hat
~ mittens! I'm always loosing mine or giving them to the kids when theirs get wet
~ chunky toque (or beanie as they are also known as)

~ Nuno scarf in teals, purples, yellows.  
~ vessels

~ Scarf of many colors!  the more crazy the better!

~ 4X4 World of Warcraft themed panels. (whole fabric size being 5 inches please!)  I'm making hubby a surprise quilt and will be embroidering panels as well.  If this is chosen, it will go on his quilt!

~ Story blocks
~ Surprise ball! Filled with surprises of course!

~ Roving! (this could also be hand dyed and likely considered a medium if not a large if you use a fair amount of roving)
~ Bits, bobs and buttons that could be used as embellishments
~ serger output
~ Unique Mugs

Or of course, Anything off or inspired by my Wists!

Added a few more things!

Hey, I'm RoaneFaery. I live in Portland, Oregon.  

I am a geek, I referee flat track Roller Derby (my derby name is Snow Blight) and dress up like Cthulhu (only for certain events... not all the time.)
I love Steampunk too and dress up when ever possible for conventions and such.
I am married with no kids but I do have 2 cats and a dog.

I have a big thing for cute versions of evil things.  I like jewel tones and blacks and browns. (I don't look good in and pink, orange, or yellow type colors.)

My favorite bands are a-ha (yes they had more than that one song), Abney Park, and Jonathan Coulton.

Other themes I like: Forest, tentacles, faeries, Sci-fi (tv and books), Post-apocalypse, zombies, Halloween, any shows by Joss Whedon. (along with the aforementioned Cthulhu, Steampunk, and Roller Derby.)

And of course my Wist has all sorts of stuff I would love to get.


Handmade Stuffies. Especially weird ones (like Cthulhu or cryptozoological stuff, monsters, zombies versions of adorable animals)

A good warm and waterproof dog coat. (It rains a lot in Portland and my puppy doesn't have a thick coat and gets cold. and he has longish hair so he gets really wet)

I do a fair amount of sewing so things like pincushion, needle books, thread catchers and such are good.

A pair of fingerless gloves would be cool. (I work on a computer all day and my cube gets cold.)

Bustle skirt for my Steampunk costumes. It could be a tie on one.

Cool steampunk decorated t-shirts. (generally a medium in womens unless they run small)

Handmade or altered book. I love journals and books. (No lined paper preferred although other interesting pages mixed in would be cool.)

I like bags.. more messenger style than hand bag although project bags are good to.

I could use some more cloth menstrual pads.  Any style is fine.

A lined apron for my husband (He's a geek too. I made him one but it turned out a bit big. He is 6'5" but apparently I made the top too wide)

Steampunk jewelery or accessories (no earrings)

Embroidery hoop art in any above themes.

Something cool with my derby name.

Stitch markers for crochet (need to have a clasp of some sort)


Roving for needle felting

bits and pieces to make steampunk stuff

A learn to knit kit

embroidery thread

-Note cards
-Pendants to slide onto necklace chains
-Ear flap hats
-Pin cushion with a hard base so I don't get poked Smiley

-Gloves and/or fingerless gloves that go a bit past my wrist (I wear kid-sized gloves due to my short, stumpy fingers)
-Kitchen towels

Hi!  I'm a 31 year old woman who lives with her two bunnies in a teensy tiny condo in Maryland, USA. I'm a teacher in a middle school, and I love it.  I love most any color (see my profile for the colors of my house), though I'm not really a fan of paisley, neons, baby pastels, or animal print.  I love polka dots, stripes, fun patterns, bright colors, and "comfy" things.  I love puns, good grammar, penguins, rabbits, doors and windows, autumn and reading (favorite books include To Kill a Mockingbird and the Sookie Stackhouse/TrueBlood series and Mercedes Thompson series - both about werewolves and vampires - I do NOT like Twilight.)  I've got a pretty good sense of humor.  I prefer useful items to those that just sit around and look pretty.

I'm allergic to cats, but not deathly, so unless you send the cat herself (er, put holes in the box!) and then once Her Highness reaches here she decides that my head is her throne, we should be all good. Wink

- A wisty surprise/wist-inspired surprise - I keep it updated, so what's there are things I like!
- Handcrafted Christmas ornaments (Yes, I know it's January!)
- candles (scents: lavender, sandalwood, Christmas scents - pine, cinnamon, pumpkin)
- incense (scents: same as above)
- embroidered hoopla of some kind! I want to start a hoopla wall and I've got nothing.
- handspun and/or hand-dyed yarn
- apron (any kind!) - I'm plus-sized, so something that I can tie around me and then in front would rock.
- wall art (perhaps something crafty for my craft area?)
- Hand-carved stamps
- nifty pendants of some kind based on my wist or themes
- pincushion (I've only got the requisite tomato!)
- needlebook

- sewing machine cover
- checkbook cover
- stitch markers (I knit and crochet)
- notecards w/ envelopes
- wreath or other seasonal decoration for my front door (it's indoors, as I live in a condo, so it wouldn't be exposed to the elements) - really, I've got a couple wreaths but I think my neighbors are tired of them, as I've had them for five years.  (As am I, for that matter!)  I've recently received an autumn themed wreath and a Christmas wreath so something spring-ish/summer-ish would be awesome~!
- lunch bag that will hold a big tupperware container (with napkin and utensil roll would be FAB, but no worries if not!)
- some way to organize/display my jewelry (it's a mess - my bedroom is white/gray ... I haven't painted the walls yet - I've only been here five years - so something colorful would rock!  Maybe something green?)
- cover for my ironing board; it's a small tabletop one and the cream it came with shows the use of the 'cotton' setting ... anything pretty and cheerful would be loved!  I can give dimensions if you'd like to do that.
- Learn to spin kit - OMG I would be over the moon with a drop spindle, some roving and some instructions!
- stained glass something to put on my sliding glass door
- a learn to craft kit in a craft that I do not currently do (resin, clay, quilting, bath and body ...)
- fun jewelry - I like 18" or longer necklaces, earrings of all sorts, though I don't usually wear bracelets because they get banged up while I'm typing and I don't wear anklets because I've got fat ankles ad they never fit.
- low fat/low cal baked goods (are there such things?)
- a plastic bag dryer
- a mug rug
- tree of life pendant
- purse that can go over my shoulder
- reusable swiffer pads that I can get wet
- reusable 'paper' towels
- project bag for my knitting
- a coat rack to put by my door (I know this is a large!)
- handmade journal/altered journal
- knit/crochet dishcloths (I can never have enough)
- throw pillow cases (I've got the pillow part)

- fabric (any size and kind!  Though I love Amy Butler, Tanya Whelan and Anna Maria Horner)
- buttons (any and all)
- thread (any color)
- punches
- stamps (non-Christmas)
- stamp pads (not black)
- beads
- hand embroidery patterns of any kind
- Any books/magazines on sewing, knitting, crochet, jewelry - secondhand is AWESOME  

Thank you so much for choosing me! Smiley

Hi!  Im Jennifer, a 33 year old momma to a 16 month old little girl named Zoe.  I live in Kentucky (USA) and am engaged to a wonderful guy named Steve who is a plumber and sadly addicted to PS3. Steve has a 9 year old son from a previous relationship so Im an unofficial step mom too! We have 2 outside mini dachshunds (they never come into the house other than the laundry room) but the are becoming not quite so mini.  I love vintage anything.  I love owls, woodland creatures, mushroomshippie prints.  I have a HUGE wist and try really hard to keep it updated. I adore Craftster.  Swapping is seriously the only extracurricular activity I do. I dislike neon colors, animal prints, metallic fabric and sequins.  My favorite smell in the world is patchouli.love it!! Earthy/herbie (I made that word up) smells make me happy.  I cant stand anything that smells like food.  Fruits are fine but nothing that smells like cakes baking or caramel icing.  This is ironic because I love to cook.  I have no allergies other than metals, but I can wear sterling silver and surgical steel.  I'm really not picky and would love to see whatever it is that you enjoy making.  I love other people's creativity!

Knit wool striped socks-dont have to match- ladies size 8 (any color any style)

A wallet that has a place for cc, checks, cash and change-needs to be kinda heavy duty since I tend to break tiny snaps

Hi I am Edel and I live in Ireland, I mostly like functional things. I am a packrat and so there is a lot of clutter in my house if something is functional and beautiful then its a winner. Bedlinen, storage, hoodies,t-shirts etc Supplies can be hard to come by in Ireland and so they always make me happy.

I have rediscovered a passion for patchworking, so fat quarters would be awesome. I have other ideas on my profile too.



I have recently lost 23lbs yay me! So while I have some awesome t-shirts, I could do with some sexy, figure hugging ones, I am about a size L now (14-16UK) stencilled or embroidered with Dios de los Muertos, 50s, gothic, vintage hearts, nothing too cutesy..I am currently loving all the tentacle, owl type stuff on craftster..(more on my profile)...alternatively or Pj's, yoga pants,  or hoodies.

Pillow cases/duvet covers painted, stenciled, embellished in some way

Altered art journals like these

altered wall art in general I like,

anything from my wists www.wists.com/edel

Shrines, especially on the theme of womanhood, love, relationships, masculinity

Big Wishes
A quilt is of course far more than a medium, but I love patchwork.

A neat overnight bag would be great,


printed cottons, some examples of the styles I like are on my wists.

 these are some of the designers and type prints I loveanything similar to this would be great...in fact any fabric would make me happy!

Irving Street Flannel by Erin McMorris
Bliss Flannel by Valori Wells
Meadowsweet 2 by Sandi Henderson
Alexander Henry, Kaffe fasset, amy butler

Patchwork supplies/tools :  jelly rolls (love them, cant get them here)

Wonder cut ruler for patchworkor any of those rulers that have internal cutting slots.

Fat-quarters, squares etcfeel free to destash!!

Fiskars fingertip cutters

Cutterbees scissors

Sterling silver jewellery findings,

Glass beads

Stamps and stamp pads, embellishments for altered art,


Any supplies related to paper crafting, sewing or jewellery, magazines related to these crafts,

 Craft books (ditto my moan on not being able to get many of them here) used/thrifted is fine, Just nothing to do with yarn..I dont have the patience.

I love personal swaps,  I print a lot of random fabric, usually with no purpose in mind.  let me know if you want any of it.

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.  Favorite things are octopus, birds and trees.  Most of my house is decorated in hand made items so I always love wall art or other decor.  I am not a girly person and don't use much bath & body stuff.  I am also not a fan of country, babyish or animal prints.  Please do not send me anything purple, pink, jewelry or niknaks.


Wall art that says "I'm sew happy" - vinyl, sewn, painted, whatever!

Reusable snack bags

T shirts - size medium, or large if they are fitted.  I don't do jrs. shirts.  I like stenciled, embroidered or dyed.  Maybe a shirt with a little bird on the front side?  Or a robot Smiley 
Here are a few examples of other stuff I like:

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

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

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

Little hand embroidery still in the hoop for my walls - trees, birds, octopus, whatever!  There are a few on my wist that I particularly like.

Fun wooden signs:

Cloth napkins - stenciled, plain, whatever

Kitchen towels - decorated 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!

Thomas the Train pillowcase for my son

Size 3T short sleeved little boy shirts - stenciled or fun fabric

Reusable shopping bag

Knitted flowers for a bouquet I am working on like these: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/flowers-for-mam - any colors, shapes and sizes

Handmade Christmas ornaments -  nothing religious please

Yarn bowl:

Interesting baskets to store junk in

A hanging mail holder

Small black picture frames - button decorated, etc

Small pieces of hand embroidered fabric that I can make into zipper pouches

Coin purse - I have a cute owl one on my wist

Sunglasses case for my son's glasses - in Thomas fabric or something else kid oriented.  He has sporty, thick ones that don't fit into the regular, thin, slip on cases.

Any of the sewing patterns on my etsy favorites: http://www.etsy.com/people/mimiw/favorites?ref=favorites

OBV yoga pants for a short person Smiley

Something wist inspired: http://www.wists.com/mimiw

Or etsy inspired: http://www.etsy.com/people/mimiw/favorites?ref=favorites


Cotton quilting fabric - Amy Butler, Heather Bailey and the like...
Japanese import fabric in cute prints
Sewing machine needles sizes 14 & 16
Nice natural fiber yarn (no mohair or fun fur or anything like that) in any colors except purple, pink and yellow
rotary cutter blades (45mm)
100% cotton sewing machine thread - white is always great but any other colors are good too
size 16 snaps for a KAM snap press
Zippers shorter than 13"
fusible fleece
Pinking shears that work for both right and left handers
Denim - recycled jeans are fine as long as they are clean and hole free.  The larger the better.


milk chocolate covered coffee beans/espresso beans
fun/funky buttons

Hi, I'm Tzipporah, and I live in Israel Smiley I'd be delighted if anyone wanted to craft for me.

I am pretty geeky, and my major likes are : birds, cats, cute things, doctor who, buffy the vampire slayer, books and reading, embroidery, papercutting, Yiddish, baking and cake decorating, trees, moustaches, Harry Potter, zines and zine-making, graphic novels. I'm generally easily entertained Smiley

I have just emigrated to Israel and so my room is a bit bare. I am allergic to wool and only eat kosher food. I also run a free lending library for English speakers in Jerusalem.

Thanks for looking at my list Smiley

Crafted things:

- I'd love anything from or inspired by my wists - http://www.wists.com/tzipporahfeiga -- there are nearly 500 things on there, so plenty of choice

- wall art (embroidery, paper, whatever) for my library, either literature-themed or extolling the joys of reading

- an embroidery for my new hoopla wall - I only have one at the moment! I like birds, cats, geeky things, anything really. I have lots of embroideries on my wist

- a non-woolly amigurumi or other yarny cuddly toy (I am frightened of sea creatures though).

- Something Doctor Who related - maybe a pillow, bag, t shirt, embroidery, whatever you'd like to make. (I like the new Doctor Who rather than vintage, and the 11th doctor is my favourite!)

- a cushion or cushion cover for my new room, to make it feel a bit more homely

- a little notebook for writing down my dreams in the morning

- A pair of slippers

- a shoulder bag

- a needlebook or pincushion so I stop losing my embroidery needles

- a WIP bag for my embroidery or knitting

- a little pouch for my medications

- handmade soap

- a cute, non-wool winter hat, or gloves

- cute hair bows

- headbands

- a knitted/crochet lemming or teenage mutant ninja turtle

- a cat bed for our cat, Yeshale


- I always need embroidery supplies, especially flexi hoops, which we don't get in Israel.

- also baking supplies (I'd really like an american 'cup' measuring spoon set)

- printed fabrics (again, hard to get in Israel)

- nice paper for papercutting

- x-acto knife blades (no.11) - I go through them like water!

- any knitting supplies - I've just started and only have a pair of 4mm needles

- interesting buttons are always welcome.

- a lino-cutting tool as I'd like to try out stamp carving

- small, delicate paintbrushes

Thanks so much for considering me!

Hi! I'm Beth and I live in central Michigan. I'm married to a wonderful man and have no kids (yet Smiley) I work at a pizza joint and live in a tiny tiny apartment. My wist is updated and I'm not a picky girl at all! If you have any questions, feel free to pm me!

I like the colors red, black, and green, also earthy colors too, and I love plaid! I'm trying to decorate my kitchen in a hot chocolate theme (so hard to find stuff though), but no other other rooms have a theme so anything else is ok too. Sports teams we like are Ohio State Buckeyes, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Chicago Bulls. I love the Beatles, Jane Austen, Robin Hood, apples, books, The Office, LOST, and lots of other stuff is listed in my profile too!

Just a few things I dont prefer: peach scented stuff, pink and cutesy, profanity, and skulls.

Crafted wishes:

-Wallet!-any colors I like, with lots of card slots please

-Zippered pouches-any size

-Altered/handmade journal-lined, unlined, mixed papers, I like it all!

-Homemade soap-as long as its not peach, should be ok

-A crocheted or knitted shawl or cowl might be nice

-Wall art! Sketches, painted, embroidered, anything! My walls are so bare its embarrassing.

-Needle book

-Notecards to send with my swap packages would be cool!

-Handmade stamps

-ATCs! I absolutely LOVE ATCs!

-Anything from or based off of my wist (in the bottom of my sig and in my profile)

-Anything that you like to craft that you think I would like. I LOVE surprises!



-Anything else for papercrafting-stickers, tags, book pages, embellishments of any kind

-I want to learn to embroider, so anything for that would be great!

-Yarn (any brand, colors, kind)

-Any fabric scraps, buttons, and ribbon scraps

Thank you in advance to anyone who would like to craft for me!

My name is Jessica.  I'm 32, living in Central-ish Indiana.  Smiley  Please no religious themes, or gore--nudity, swearing, no problem.  Smiley

I love bright colors and glitter and cartoons and kid's books and all sorts of fun things people my age should have "grown out of".  Wink 

My husband and I are building our home ourselves, with no outside help, and we're finally at the finishing-off stage, so I'm looking for some things to decorate with.  Yeah!  Like wall art, or table decorations.  Or just practical stuff, like kitchen linens.

I love nude art of all types, especially differing body shapes.  One of my favorite ATCs I got was of a "(fat) cupcake fairy" by blupaisan , and I'd love to get more things with that kind of novelty and fun!  I love people of all shapes and sizes and would love to see nudey art, or pin-up type art featuring them.

While I have some things on my list that I would definitely love to get,  I would love to learn about who you are and receive things you'd like to give: a make-a-friend type of package!  Smiley


*Any kind of wall art.
*Nudey and/or sexy wall art, or other types of art--hand drawn, collage, embroidery, or any medium you can imagine.
*Art featuring your favorite swear word
: like, for example, a lamp that says "f*ck" all over it. lol, or towels that say "sonuvabitch!", or wall art with your favorite swear word in multiple languages, or 4 pillows (F, U, C, K).  Think of the possibilities!
*Fantasy/fairy tale art.  From mermaids to castles to witches to princesses to whatever you can think of.  (Please, no gore.  Smiley  )
*Papercuttings or silhouettes.
*Art of any type featuring the Lord of the Rings, or Shakespeare plays, or the middle ages.
*A sturdy, thick cover for a leather armchair:  cat keeps getting his claws into the chair and ruining the leather.  The cover needs to go all the way to the ground so the legs are protected as well.  Earthy tones, please, like would go well with a wood and stone living room.
*An earth-tone blanket, any type or style is fine.
*Any large item you would love to give me, that represents you.

*Six coasters.  It would be cool if they had their own storage box.  My kitchen is going to be natural, earthy tones, so earthy colors would be great.
*Earth tone kitchen supplies like towels or oven mitts.  With embroidery, or hand made, as you wish.
*Earth tone place mats (set of 6).
*A black knitted scarf.  Any style would be fine.  Smiley Time for me to get a new one!
*A binder with pages for displaying ATCs.
*An art journal.
*Any medium item you would love to give me, that represents you!
*Big eyed frog themed things.
*An embroidery project of your choice.

*Handmade rubber stamps.  Some themes: cartoony Christmas, whimsical animals, big-eyed frogs, sexy fairies, nudes, artist's choice.
*ATC cards.  Themes: nudey/pin-up, fantasy, Shakespeare, your favorite illustrated children's book, the Lord of the Rings (no villians, please), your favorite swear word, artist's choice.
*Any small item you would love to give me, that represents you!

I used to have tons of craft supplies, but I left them when I last moved, so I'd love supplies of any type (except yarn; I don't really use yarn Smiley ).

*A shadow box that I can put stuff in, divided into shelves, or not is fine.
*U-hu type glue sticks.  I bought 20 at the beginning of the school year, and only have 2 left!
*A black permanent dye-ink stamp pad.  Mine isn't stamping any more. Or any stamp pads.
*Black Sharpie pens.
*Rubber stamps, rubber stamp supplies.
*Old Dr. Suess books, or any other children's books that I can cut up for various crafts.
*Paper of all types.
*Jar of whimseys.
*Embroidery kits (even one you may have started, but never finished).
*Any extra supplies (except yarn...I don't really use yarn) you have that you want to share.
*Big wish:
I would love, love, love an impulse sealer, very hopefully 12" (8" just isn't big enough!).  Doesn't have to be new; maybe you have one lying around you just don't know what to do with? lol  I use this all the time for crafts, but my last one got lost when I moved.   Cry


I'm pretty laid back and love everything; hoping to make a new friend!  Smiley

Hello, I'm Rachel Kristen, I live in good old Pennsylvania in the Skook only known for Yuengling Beer and when supposedly Beyonce was moving here  Roll Eyes
I'm 21 and currently studying at a University for graphic design and maybe a fine arts minor if I get my act together this semester. I love anything green!  I love greens, blues, browns and black and purple colors and a bit of yellow. I'm not really a huge fan of red but subtle hints of it are A okay in my book. I love anything that looks retro, especially clocks. I have a modern aesthetic and don't really like anything country themed or too 'cutesy' I really like things with hex signs too! Or distelfinks! Stuff I tend to shy away from are knitted socks and decorative statues, I have to move my stuff alot so almost everything has to be functional.
Due to my parents splitting up, unless I move in with my bf next year I'm going to find myself homeless haha so we're moving in together, about two years early. We both own nothing useful besides plates and stuff for our dorm rooms. So my supplies/crafted items list is going to be pretty random Smiley

My wist list has a bunnnnch of stuff I would love but here is some stuff I would love to get too!

~oven mitts
~pot holders
~apron (half or full)
~kitchen towels

~re-usable 'paper' towels or unpaper towels
~homemade soap
~decorated kitchen mugs
~wall art or any kind of small art, ATC a bunch of inchies
~blank homemade journal preferably unlined
~any kind of recycled paper put together for a repurposed/altered journal
~yoga mat bag
~A large sturdy tote for me to carry heavy art supplies in, I really like bright patterns similar to vera bradley or a scrappy looking quilt kind of texture
~rag rug/toothbrush rag/any kind of rug
~toothbrush holder
~paper towel holder
~place mats
~spoon rest for cooking utensils
~glass jewelry or beads that I can wear to work (I'm trying to look more professional and grown up  Grin )
~matching coaters (maybe not even matching themed?)
~serger cover for a singer serger
~wristlet for cell phone and misc. cards and ID
~knitted/chrotched swiffer pads
~cloth napkins
~a whisk
~recipe book or cards, stuff a college student can make with a very very limited budget would be lovely Smiley

If you think of anything kitchen related or house related you would find useful that i can't think of I'm going to say go for it, I'm not choosy and anything is welcome Smiley

~colored pencils
~Fabric! We don't have ANY fabric stores around me anymore most of them are an hour away and too far to just make a special trip, anything with prints on them and are brightly colored are wonderfully wonderful!
~paper, scrap bookpaper, vintage looking paper photo paper, watercolor paper ripped paper scraps I'm not picky
~old picture frames, preferably plain wooden ones to put my art in
~those squares you use to make pot holders, I can't find them anywhere anymore and my plastic one broke from when I was a kiddo, a used one you don't want is fine
~latch rug canvas, larger size for a floor rug, I can't find these anywhere anymore and I want to tackle a small carpet

~scarfs, knitted, chrocheted or just something you have laying around and don't want
~Russian nesting dolls, I collect them Smiley
~clocks, I love 'em!

Thank you so much for looking me over and thank you thank you thank you even more if you want to craft for me!

Hello.  I am puzzler and I live in Connecticut, US.  I like simple and useful things.  I love the idea that something was re-purposed or recycled, so if you can be green while crafting something for me- that would be wonderful. Please don't send me anything pink.  Thank you! Smiley

Here is my wish list:


Socks -size 10 (no artificial fibers please)-  any peaceful color, like gray, green, blue, black, etc.

Fabric bucket (bucket/bag made of fabric for either my yarn or fabric storage, etc)


How to Kit (quilting, embroidery/needlework, felting, cross stitch, whatever your specialty happens to be).  

Writing journal/altered book.  Perhaps something with writing prompts or ideas?

I would LOVE this kind of slippers: http://wists.com/puzzler/e3fd698d80ecb769570e9eba3c942033?offset=0 or any slippers from my wist.

Anything from my wist: http://wists.com/puzzler


Organizer for crochet hooks and/or  knitting needles they can be separate, but maybe they can be combined somehow, so that I can keep all of them together and not look for them as often?

Sandwich wrap (something like this, for example: http://www.wists.com/puzzler/2fb140159c5154d0ef456d0d15cc68f9?offset=0  )

Snack baggies  (one or two) (like this, for instance: http://www.wists.com/puzzler/2fb140159c5154d0ef456d0d15cc68f9?offset=0  )

mug rug

Swap journal something to make me more organized.

Anything from my wist: http://wists.com/puzzler



earrings (see my wist for styles, ideas)

Other stuff that might fit any category: quilting tools or supplies, ink pads, any natural yarn (wool, cotton) or dpns.

 Please feel free to ask me any questions.  Thanks for reading and thanks if you want to make me something!   Smiley

Hello!  I love to knit and sew, and Im new to embroidery.  I currently live in Wisconsin, so warm things are always appreciated!  I have a retired racing greyhound who loves small, soft blankets and natural toys.  

My aesthetic is very minimal--I try to surround myself with simple, beautiful, natural things.  William Morris said it best:  Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.  

I love natural colors and materials, especially organic and sustainable, and various shades of grey, blue, green, and brown (and lovely clear red).  I'm also loving orange lately--bright, clear oranges (more red than yellow)--and soft teals.  

I also have a huge list of wists and a pretty extensive etsy favorites.  Thank you!



shibori scarf

shawl or wrap - i love shawls or wraps of any kind, sewn or knit, dyed, embellished, whatever.  there are many, many examples on my wistsfeel free to experiment with my wists and likes in mind.

knitted fingerless gloves:  perhaps stripey mitts (in oranges and teals with a grey background?  or any other colors like the ones listed in my intro!) or leafy mitts, or any others that you think I might like!

mittens made of felted sweaters

two-color worsted weight handspun yarn

 hand-dyed sock yarn


altered art belt buckle in a western, botanical, or steampunk theme

crocheted o-ring necklace in spring green


 handmade soap - cinnamon, lavendar, eucalyptus, oatmeal and honey, etc.

ironing board cover in a fun print or plain solid fabric

quilted potholders in natural colors

stenciled placemats in natural colors like browns, blues, greens, orange/rust/red

modern laminated-fabric placemats

tea towels -- embroidered, embellished, stenciled, or vintage-style.  seriously, i love tea towels of any kind!

embroidered hankies for hubby:  themes could be agriculture (he would be soo happy with an old-fashioned hand plow, a mule or goat, or any kind of old-timey farming image), star wars, battlestar galactica, firefly, alien, etc.  

bags and organizers

zip pouches of any kind, large and small!  perhaps embroidered linen, or fun modern fabrics?

pouch for a natural first aid kit

your version of the in touch clutch

coin purse

your version of a knitting organizer

for the dog

natural, dog-friendly soaps

soft, small blankets sewn, knitted, patchwork, whatever, as long as its washable!  

other fun stuff

hand-carved rubber stamps like these or with lotta jansdotter-type designs or like the ones at mayamade

handspun or hand-dyed yarn

your version of a homemade pinhole camera

pre-loved is more than fine for these!  and a supplies-only package is great.

sock yarn of any kindespecially superwash wool or hand-dyed

books about sock knitting

darning egg

acrylic circle tool for quilting  

100% wool, worsted weight yarns in natural colorsmy stash has been sadly depleted lately!  id love any nice colors, but especially greens  

100% wool, DK weight yarns see above!

IKEA fabrics in modern or botanical designs--I live several hours from an Ikea but LOVE their fabrics!

any issues of stitch magazine

blocking board for knitting

embroidery patterns --  any from badbirds etsy shop, Japanese embroidery patterns or books, sublime stitching (especially artists series #3, vital organs), clover (kitchen, animals, garden), wee wonderfuls, anything vintage / modern  (but no cutesy animals, country, or kitsch, please)

vintage dress-making books, especially with pattern-making advice; in particular Im looking for Vogue's New Book for Better Sewing (1952)

vintage calendar kitchen towels

OR anything you like to craft that you think fits my taste based on my wishes, my wists, or my etsy favorites  

Thank you!

Hi all, My Name is Elaine, I live in New South Wales, Australia. I am a SAHM with 2 beautiful girls aged 1 and 3 years old. My favourite colours are purple, silver, navy blue, khaki green and dark brown (but NOT Camo). I have had quite a liking of pinks since Ive had my two girls! I like Celtic and Scottish stuff (my heritage), historical/ archaeological stuff, cooking, reading, red dwarf, funky fitted t-shirts, my favourite animal is a lady bug. I prefer not to receive items that are gold, of religious nature, explicit or nudity thank you. We have no allergies, but prefer our crafts to arrive smoke and pet hair free but as long as you smoke away from your craft and you dont let your pets sit on your knitting then we should be ok!

   Wist surprise  wist -
   Altered Laundry powder box - Im thinking a tin or maybe a wooden box with hinged lid needs to hold about 1kg powder?
   Wall art : example of things I like: this , this, this  and this
   Sun hats for my girls In Australia, you can NEVER have too many sun hats. They are sleeping as I write, so if you want to try this project, then let me know and Ill get the head circumferences.
   Door plaques with my girls names on them. Maybe something like Jennilocker made for this FOC Wist swap: door plaque
    Set of inchies, ATCs or an altered puzzle that I can frame and hang on the wall. (Im am so unartistic when it comes to paper crafts its unreal!)
   Fitted t-shirt for me with cool printed/appliqued design Im an Australian size 16 on top (which I believe is a US size 14 or a UK size 16). I quite like this tree of life t-shirt  But Im open to any design.
   Clothes for my girls I love anything that is a bit different to what all the other kids are wearing we only have one decent clothes shop in town, so most kids own the same clothes around here! Let me know if you fancy this one and what measurements you might need. It is summer here at the moment, but I'm thinking something for the comming winter would be great
   Earrings I usually wear silver (type) stud earrings no danglies. When I was younger, you could pick up pretty cheaply a huge assortment of earrings spiders, pot leaves(!), elephants, flowers etc. I would love some new ones as many of mine are nearly 15 years old! They dont need to be pairs as I usually wear odd earrings anyway! These and these are very cute.  
   An Embroidery hoopla Im a bit late to join this craze, but I wouldnt mind starting a hoopla wall, I have a couple of examples of what I like on my wist.
   Pendants necklace I am always wearing a pendant  type necklace on a just longer than choker length black thong. I have quite a collection which has grown nicely since Ive started swapping on craftster, but I always need more. Anything goes, although not too big and I would ALWAYS choose silver over gold. (doesnt have to be real silver, Im not allergic to anything). I really like the glass pendants that Dawl makes, especially the row of flowers one. There are a few examples on my wist

Craft supplies
   I have just started making inchies and I have a black sharpie, but would love some sharpies in other colours (particularly brown!) Anything else to help my new found inchie creative streak would be appreciated
   2.5 fussy cut squares for an eye spy quilt I need lots of them still! Or scraps of fabric with identifiable objects that I can cut down to 2.5 squares.
   Some machine embroidered images or numbers or letters  on 2.5 squares that I can incorporate into my eye-spy quilt.
   Fat quarters or 20cm / 8-10 cuts of tone on tone fabric. So for example say Blue with blue swirls or green with green spots. (to go between the fussy cut squares I dont want plain, but dont want to distract too much from the I-spy game either)
   Any other quilting fabrics you have to offer even reasonable sized scraps as I do quite a bit of applique. Patterns or plains, neat or scrappy, anything goes when it comes to my stash!
   Any buttons, as many as you can spare, odd or not.
   Empty Janome bobbins clear plastic (not metal) Not sure it makes much difference, but my machine is a DC3018 example

Other things / extras
   Quilting magazines or books, second hand is fine.
   If there is space in the parcel, I wouldnt turn down some yummy treats! I love mint chocolate (but make sure you wrap it well as it's summer here and if tragedy happened I wouldn't want it to melt onto your creation!)
   Have you ever taken an artistic photo? - that one in a million that just looks great - I'd love a copy. Even a 6x4" would be great.
   Incense holder that catches the ash and incense (I like nag champa). Doesnt have to be as fancy as the one Ive linked, but I do like this one!

Thanks in advance if you pick me!

I'm Victoria- soon to be 22, living at my folks with a fianc who's currently undergoing selection for the British army. I work in a library in a sleepy seaside town, and I got my undergraduate degree in English Literature this summer, after trying to write about comic books and nothing but as much as possible  Grin I'm thinking about a masters degree in either information science, museums or japanese media, but for now, I'm taking a loooong break from study, learning to embroider, play the ukulele, use my sewing machine, and rollerskate!

i'm not allergic to anything i know of, although i do suffer from migraines so sometimes struggle with things whihc are heavily scented or neon coloured

things i'd like-

anything at all to do with Little Big Planet- it's a love that my fianc and I both share, so I tend to make him ami's etc. and then wish I'd kept some for myself Tongue

anything to do with DISNEY!
my faves are Lilo and Stitch, Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland (both the animation and Tim Burton's version), Peter Pan, and Up. I'm in love with Burton's Cheshire Cat (voiced by Stephen Fry <3) and Lotso Huggin (the bad guy from toy story 3). I'd especially love to receive plushies (if i got a poppet, i'd just about die!) amigurumi, or embroidery for my hoop wall. but anything themed around disney would be great by me!

anything with tentacles- particularly embroidery, some polyclay earrings, or a big freakin' plushie tentacle!

anything pin-up inspired, especially British and American WWII style. could be wearable, or not

a pair of spats! preferably sort of beat-up and apocalyptic-looking

a pair of painted shoes (i'm a UK size 6.5/7)

eric from true blood. um, i mean, anything to do with eric from true blood!

deco sweets- fake 'kawaii' foods, like macaroons or cakes or cookies, made from poly clay and silicone stuff

a shrine of any kind! i absolutely love altered art

anything to do with roller derby- i got some skates for my birthday and i've fallen over more times than i can count  Cheesy but i'm persevering!

anything to do with comics- tank girl, watchmen, and the league of extraordinary gentlemen in particular. i especially love delirium from Sandman (would LOVE a plushie or some embroidery!!)

anything at all to do with circuses, carnivals and freak shows.

anything 'old west'- more Deadwood than Little House on the Prairie, but other than that i don't know what i have in mind!

anything Viking or Roman inspired



bento supplies!

anything that i can use to make my own deco sweets- molds, silicone gel etc

fabrics, especially disney and alice themed ones, from japan- there many examples on my wist

any whimsical odds and ends i can use as i experiment with altered art

pretty coloured crochet hooks- we can't get any around here!- and coloured duct tape

peanut butter candy!

anything to get me started in book binding- this is something i'm dying to try, but i have no idea at all where to begin!

any books or other guides on how to sell/market your crafts

any craft books or patterns in japanese

any sublime stitching patterns

any comic books- i like to cut them up and use the pictures!

i have a pretty huge wist here- http://www.wists.com/annachronism - and a flickr account that acts in a similar way (PM me, i think it's only searchable under my email address)

lots and lots of thank you's for choosing me!

I'm Heather, 30 yrs old in California. I'm very much a mix of "earthy" and "up in the cosmos", somehow, and my favorite things are generally nature and animals. Not really into anything in pop culture or media these days; I'm basically a hermit. I'm inspired by magical, wondrous things; bellydancing; apothecaries and holistic non-Western medicine; textiles and decor styles of India, Morocco and SE Asia; whimsical steampunk; Amelie Poulain; and voyaging into the unknown. I also love straight-faced, unexpected, wacky absurdity and ironic nonsense, as long as it doesn't involve hatefulness or harming anything or anyone. I am left-handed, left-leaning, low-maintenance, and have no piercings. My style is completely eclectic, though I'm definitely not modern. I like most colors, and organic/free-flowing patterns.

Allergies: cig smoke, mold/mildew, and cat-spray.
I am a big fan of reuse, upcycling and second-hand stuff, so feel free to send me clean hand-me-downs.

My Craftster profile has lots of info, and so do my wists. Wisty surprises are most welcome!  Smiley

My wishlist (not in any order of size or preference) :


- a delicate, dark-colored (or any shade of brown) snood
- knitted socks
- a simple shrug, capelet or wrap
- Deep-v-neck sweater like this; doesn't have to be argyle
- hanging plarn basket for bike handlebars or for guerrilla plantings
- any amount of your corespun yarn or art yarn, in any color. A sampling would be great!

- multi-tiered, beaded choker; examples in my wists.
- anything similar to what can be found in the Steampunk Charm Swap
- beaded beads
- big flower hairclips, which you can learn how to make in one of the Craftster Quickies videos. Other kinds of 1930s-40s or pinup style hair accessories would be awesome, too.

- patched-together hippyish apparel, such as an apron-style top
- something recond from a t-shirt (for shirts, I need my belly covered, without rips/tears, and for it to stay on both my shoulders. There are examples of non-shirt t-shirt projects in my wists)
- a bedspread made of 2 of those India/hippyish tapestries sewn together (such as this or this, rather than tie-dye) quilted back-to-back. I could easily do it myself if I had a sewing machine, but alas Im inept with such things.
- Wraparound pants, aka Thai fishermen's pants. Another pattern is here
- any kind of rag rug
- a mug rug (another thing I didn't know I needed until I saw it here!) with something on it that would make me smile

Paper and Mixed Media:
- a tiny handmade book, decorated and filled with art or blank
- a 4x4 chunky page, an ATC, some inchies, an embroidered fabric page or a tip-in art journal page (any size). Some themes of interest are here
- paper bowl or basket, same idea as the tutorials here or here
- paper you've marbled

Other media:
- Homemade jam/preserves! nomnomnom.
- baked goods of any variety, if you're in the U.S. and send very quickly
- any essential oils you've prepared yourself
- a fairy/gnome door I can leave at the base of a tree
- a big Buddha candle or small Buddha carving you've made

Crafted in the medium(s) of your choice:
- throw-pillow cover (just one, and Ill buy the pillow myself), crafted in your specialty (i.e. patchwork, embroidery, needlefelted, covered with monochrome buttons, crocheted, etc)
- knickers, bloomers, or other old-fashioned wearables
- a calorimetry, scoodie, or button-up spats, in brown or gray
- a subtle garland that doesn't look like it's for a child/baby. Prayer flags would be lovely, too.
- a Teesha Moore style sewn/embroidered/embellished binder cover (Craft-along thread is here, and original tutorial videos here.)

- luscious batts/roving/carded fiber for hand-spinning
- only if you already have one and no longer want it (don't go out and spend $ on a new one) : a heat gun tool or a Bind-It-All machine
- your used diy/alternacrafty books (Amazon wishlist: http://amzn.com/w/HJ4Q12ZIPRQW)
- Glue Dots
- needles for needle-felting
- clear, 9-sleeve trading card sheets, for storing ATCs in a 3-ring binder
- left-handed pinking shears
- foil trim (aka Dresden trims)
- DIY kit for metal embossing (pointy tools, copper sheets, etc)

- Something to nurture my inner "zen earth-goddess" side (I do enough nurturing of my "goobery weirdo" side on my own  Cheesy)
- Something that inspires adventure
- Something that celebrates the Sacred Feminine, or women who don't fit the mold, or something along those lines

Thanks and much crafty love!

Yarn keeps me sane(ish)

« Reply #41 on: January 14, 2011 01:47:13 AM »

My name is Ann and Im a yarnie living in Sweden. My main yarn craft is knitting, but I also crochet on a medium to basic level and dabble in just about anything I get my hands on. I can sew extremely basic things but I usually let my husband handle the sewing machine since hes much better at it. Im a pharmacist and my work situation is complicated. I work at a temporary place, waiting to open up a new store and I live with my parents until we get our new place. Due to the craziness I can't really swap right now, but I can hopefully help someone get back to swapping Smiley

Dont pay too much attention to the headers. Feel free to craft my wishes with another craft or in another craftster size if you want to.

My favourite colours are almost all shades of purple, the combination of teal and chocolate brown, teal on its own, black with almost any colour, bright rainbows, and silver. My wist should give you an idea too.

I dont mind recycled or upcycled materials in crafts. You could even say that I really like recycled/upcycled crafts =) Yay for free or almost free supplies! As long as everything is clean and not broken beyond repair Wink

Things I like: Owls, yarn, knitting pretty lace, shades of purple, bright rainbows, soaps, creepy cute, nice non-gory zombies, roleplay, sushi, buttons

Things I dont want/dont like: Slippers or shoes (unless you can make orthopaedic ones where one is 1,5 cm higher than the other...), overly cutesy things, pale pastels, purely decorative items that collect dust...

Allergies: Not me, but my sister is allergic to pretty much everything furry. So any baby stuff (for my niece) needs to be animal hair free or washable.

Any craft
- Something wist inspired
- Something you're good at doing that you think I'd enjoy Smiley

Large wishes
- Socks, socks, socks... I like socks and I knit them for myself but it would be lovely to receive a pair (knitted or crocheted). Thin or thick yarn, but not super chunky. I want to be able to wear them with my special slippers. I think Im an US 8, but I can measure more accurately if needed.
- Fingerless gloves knitted with thin yarn/sock yarn or something like this: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/podster-gloves
- A decorated black board for writing shopping lists and the menu of the week on.

Sewn/fabric crafts
- A wall hanging mail organiser with 3-4 pockets to organise bills and mail.

- Night time cloth pad(s). With wings if possible.
- Regular cloth pads, any style but not too bulky
My night pads are 12 inches long, about 3,5 inches wide and have wings. My regular ones are about 10 inches long and about 3 inches wide folded up. The ones I have stay in place without wings (they are basically double fabric sewn together that I fold to make a pad that's 6 layers thick). So a bit of length is usually more important than wings, but I don't mind either way.

- Owly art quilt
- A car trash bag! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=352363.0

- A bag or tote, either for regular shopping or some kind of project bag
- A fabric coiled bowl, perhaps in shades of purple or rainbow (they look so cool)
- Full length apron for my big man. I'll try to sneak some measurements if this is picked. He wears 3XL or 4XL t-shirts (us sizes) to give you an idea. I'd love it if it was chili or jalapeno themed.
- A heat pad (the rice filled kind, but I can fill it to save on postage). Any size or shape, I use them for my neck, period pain or just because I'm cold.
- Stencilled or decorated T-shirt for my husband, 3XL or 4XL us sizes. Preferably not iron on stencils since they dont survive when I do the laundry... Good themes are science fiction, star wars, medieval martial arts (swords!), aeroplanes, WoW (Horde!), funny quotes. PM me for more inspiration.

- Dish scrubbies (acrylic and other synthetics are usually better than cotton here. Really scratchy yarn is great for this)
- Market bag (the kind with some sort of mesh texture that expands)
- Kid safe amigurumi or small stuffies for my niece. Shes 7 months old and loves to chew on things. So keep in mind that this will be slobbered all over.
- Bib with some kind of happy animal on it. Ive seen a crocheted monkey-face bib that was really cute. (could be sewn too)
- Baby stuff in general. I like spoiling my niece and her mom with handmade goodies.

Yes please?

Bath & beauty
I might get a bathtub! But until then I prefer shower & beauty stuff... So no bath bombs just yet.

- Dangly bracelet with lots of charms and beads for my mom. She deserves a present for putting up with us living here... Green or teal would be a good colour. I think I have an example on my wist.
- Dangly but not too heavy earrings for me. I like when they hang down a little, but cant stand heavy things in my ears.
- Shrinky dink pins. (http://weewonderfuls.typepad.com/wee_wonderfuls/2005/08/tutorial_for_sh.html)
- Stitch markers. You cant get too many of those Smiley Those that open that can be used for both knitting and crochet are nice, but any kind will do.

- I like decoupaged boxes and shrines
- Altered book
- Inchies
- Altered puzzles

- Blocking wire for my lace projects.
- Fun cotton yarn for dishcloths.
- Scratchy acrylic or synthetic yarn for dish scrubbies
- Crochet hook with hooks in both ends (Ive got tutorials to use them but no such hook)
- Regular crochet hooks (can be second hand). Poly clay covered ones would be awesome since I like the grip to be larger than on regular ones.
- Fun buttons for baby cardigans and the like. Bigger holes since theyre probably going to be sewn on with yarn.

I couldn't resist putting a list together. I'm George, aka Phizzy and though I currently live in Spain I am moving (oh so soon!) and would love it if my first mail to my new address in England was crafty! Grin

I love all things nature related and love Indian/Moroccan styles. And music, I'm passionate about my rock & metal. I'm fairly bohemian in my tastes and have a love for the whimsical. So, on to the wishlist!

Crochet scarf - something viney/leafy/flowery would be fab!

Ink Stamps - I have a measly collection, so would love some swirls and other interesting stamps.

Slippers - I'll admit I have a slipper addiction! I'm UK 5/European 38

Prayer flags - I would love some prayer flags!

Fabric pieces - In 'warm' colours - read/yellow/orange/purple/browns

Tie dyed slips - UK12 for example this and this

Tie dyes tights/leggings

Wrist cuff - Leather/embroidered fabric/felted wool. There are several on my wist for style ideas.

Arm warmers - mixed colour knitted or fabric like these

lavender sachets, Incense & essential oils - I love my candles and scents!

String shopping bags

Goddess necklace/ornament - like this one

Anything Green Man related!

Heavy Metal altered tee - usually Girls small/medium (PM me for bands)

Something skeleton/bones related. Actually I love the TV series Bones too...

Anything at all Discworld related! Or Dexter...or NCIS (I love Abby!)

Thanks! Smiley

Hi! My name is Marie-Hlne and I live with my mom and my boyfriend in Gatineau, Canada. I am currently doing a master's in occupational therapy. I could not resist making a list!

Me and my boyfriend are solid gamers. We always love video-game inspired crafts, so don't hesistate to incorporate characters, items or anything from video-games. We mostly love those series: Zelda, Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, Dr. Layton, Mario Bros., Megaman, Chrono Trigger.

I love rich turquoise and fushia. I love the mixes pink-chocolate-beige or blue and chocolate. I love bright colours and I love rich colours.

I tried to separate the items in small-medium-large categories. However, I might have placed some things in the wrong place, so if you want to move them a little bit, it's ok!

Larges items:

1) Small lap quilt: a colourful quilt just to put on a chair or something

2) Sewn knitting bag: I always have projects lying around, so a bag is always useful! Maybe quilted or just sewn.

3) A video-game inspired painting: that could fit in my grey and orange living room or my burnt orange and beige bedroom.

4) Crocheted Megaman hat for my boyfriend: he's been wanting one for a long time!

5) A poppet that looks like a female character from any of the video-games named at the top. That would be really cool!

6) An embroidered somthing: I love how embroidery looks, so I'd love a embroiderd hoop with an interesting design.

7) A owl pillow: in neutral colours like beige and brown and golden yellow.

8 ) Two pillow covers that would change the look of my boring beige pillows (38 centimeters width and height). My living room is grey and orange with white and black.

9) A granny square throw in many colours to warm my legs

10) Hand painted shoes, size 8 for women

Medium items:

1) A t-shirt with a video-game image on it: I wear XL men's t-shirts to sleep and I'd love a handmade one

2) A chocobo stuffie: from Final Fantasy

3) A sewn or crocheted Disney princess plushie (any princess)

4) Knitted socks: any kind, hand-knitted socks rule!

5) A Yeti stuffie

6) A printed or stenciled reusable bag

7) A nintendo DS cover

8 ) Video-game inspired perler beads coasters

9) Handspun or handpainted yarn

10) A cross-stitched bookmark with a classy fairy on it (for my mom)

Small items:

1) Handmade soap (I'd love something spicy, but anything that smells nice is perfect!)

2) Handmade lip balm (any nice smelling scent, but not too sweet)

3) Stitch markers for knitting or crocheting

4) Handmade scented candle

5) A piece of jewelry that looks like a feather or a leaf

6) A bright colour necklace

7) A video-game inspired keychain

8 ) A small slime (from Dragon Quest), for my collection

9) A mini something with Eeyore on it (I love Eeyore!)

10) A coin purse in bright colours

1) Yarn: soft, intruiging yarn or something with a really rich colour.

2) Fabric squares: I just started (yesterday!) quilting, so I don't have a lot of fabric yet.

3) Black perler beads: I can't find perler beads by the colour here... I could use other basic colours (red, yellow, brown, green), but black is the most important!

4) Coverable buttons: you know the metal buttons you cover with any fabric? I can't find these here either, so it would be useful to get some with the little tool that comes with them

5) A basic "learn to embroider" kit or something... Maybe some basic transfer patterns, so I can learn how to do it...

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hello, my name is Wendy and I live in Durham, North Carolina. I'm 41 (eek) and I live with my husband, 20 month old son and our dog, Dixie.
I'm sort of a jack of all trades (master of none). I like sewing, paper crafts, woodworking, stained glass, knitting and gardening.
Colors I likepinks, greens, blues, chocolate, red, orange. I'm not fond of neon and I abhor peach and mint.
I really appreciate things made with re-purposed materials. Up until I had the boy I worked at a nonprofit creative reuse center.
My taste is kind of eclectic. I love vintage stuff 20s through the 70s-- not a fan of the 80s except the music. I already lived through it once. I also like modern fresh fun design and shabby chic. Not a fan of country style. But mostly I just really appreciate things made by hand-- the time and care put into them makes them special.
Thanks for considering me!


Lavender sachets
Bath salts (w/natural fragrance)
Sugar scrub (w/natural fragrance)
Wool dryer balls
Craft apron with lotsa pockets
Garden apron with lotsa pockets
Full apronvintagey
Headband- knit/crocheted/fabricpretty open to anything
Pincushionhedgehog or turtle or flower or just something fun

3T shirt(s) for my kiddo. He likes trucks (his 1st word), planes, trains, Curious George
A stuffie for my son
Anything Curious George for my son
Mini tote bag(s) for my son so he'll stop stealing my purses to carry around the house.
Halloween decorations (not too scary). All of mine were destroyed when our roof leaked. Cry
Reusable produce bags
Reusable swiffer cover
A fairy door I can put on a tree outside
Any kind of garden art
Plant markers
A screen cleaner-- I like this one http://www.instructables.com/id/Dust-Bunny-plush-screen-duster/

Hi there!  My name's Kim, I'm 28, and I've been married to my fantastic hubby for 10 years.  We have a french bulldog (Gizmo!) and a pug (Lola).

We're California transplants, living in Austin, TX and loving it! I'm a reader, a maker, and a painter. Trying to become a bit of a do-er and taking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, and Boxing classes. I do, after all, need to burn off some of the food that I love so much - Indian Buffet here I come!

Likes: My favorite colors are purple, dark teal, turquoise, acid green, brown, charcoal, and occasionally pink when it's mixed into a kind of mod pattern that isn't over the top girly. I'm also a fan of colorful polka dots, tentacled critters, goldfish, and owls Smiley

Dislikes: Disney, teddy bears, lacy frou-frou stuff, grandma prints, cabbage roses, puff paint. Puppies and kittens are awesome when I can play with them, not so much when they're crafted.


~Wisty Goodness.  It's updated, and I love everything...just ignore the obviously store bought goodies
~Anything French Bulldog.  Pugs are popular, so it's easier to find pug things, but not frenchies.
~Painted Umbrella like this one: Spotty Umbrella  I'm not terribly attached to the color, but I love the polka dots!  Or maybe tentacles? An Octopus?
~Mythical creature "taxidermy" - From the cute  to creepy
~Bleach stenciled t-shirts or tank tops with animals Owls, birds, goldfish, giraffes, pretty much anything that's not super cutesy. Women's fitted shirts, (Target, or Old Navy type, I know they always have a ton at Goodwill) size small.
~Decorated Recipe Binder that I can add recipes to.
~Pendants/Necklaces Living Moss Pendant,  Painted Wood Pendant,  Stained Glass Pendant, Pebble Necklace, Sloth
~Embroidered Cuff Bracelet  I like the whole thing, but it could be cool with a pattern like this too!
~Wall art My wist and my DA wishlist probably give you a good idea what I like.   and one more.
~Re-usable lunch bag (Small grocery bag size?)  Use your imagination, but it has to fit a microwave meal and some fruit, lol.
~Animal Stuffies Sewn, not knit or crocheted.  They're lovely, but I have plenty of amis!
~Cute Needle Book
~Healthy Snacks Home made beef jerky, granola, trail mix, dried fruit, fruit leathers, etc.  Whatever you can make that would ship well!
~Fabric coil coasters I like the colors in these ones about a third of the way down the page
~Owl Pillow
~Tide Pool Bracelet

I will be happy to take used items and project leftovers off your hands!

~Lead Free Solder
~Soldering Iron Rheostat
~Old clock parts (hands, gears, etc.)
~Fun and funky fabrics like a lot of the stuff Spoonflower sells.   If you know of a cheaper place to get similar fabrics, let me know! Fat Quarters, and even decent sized scraps are cool Smiley
~Colorful fat quarters Different from above, I'm talking about the usual ones you find in any craft store.
~Old unwanted comic books that can be chopped into decoupage fodder.
~Precious Metal Clay  Even a little bit to experiment with.
~Ceramic marking pens  I think it bakes on in the oven.
~Throw pillow forms/filler
~Handi-Bobs!Thank you soooo much to thedish for identifying these for me!  I thought I was crazy because no one at the fabric store had any idea what I was talking about...
