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 66.

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 TEN 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 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 but can be up to 2 weeks after the swap closed if you do not post 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

Previous Swap Rounds:
If you are confused in any way by how this works, please look at some previous rounds:


BABALINA58 will be our organizer, in charge of your claims, your sends, receives and approval feedback.
LINDYV321 will be or co Organizer in charge of the gallery Smiley

NEW CO ORG this round~~~


Remember peeps:

1) I will not do feedback w/o the pics posted or 2 weeks after the swap has closed as per the rules set by craftster so get them posed EARLY!!!

Make sure you take pics BEFORE you ship as it will effect your feedback if you don't and your partner does not post pics..it is unacceptable to receive and not post pics

Lindy and I are both happy fun loving girls but will follow the rules to the T so please this is very important to finish off the swap process.  it NOT acceptable to receive and not post pics it is just IMO RUDE and not very concentrate to the sender.

I know things happen that is WHY you need to take pics BEFORE you send and just store them in your gallery if needed and it makes it fun for us to see and wists your goodies...Check your cameras before you claim ladies...
If you don't have a working camera DON'T CLAIM!!  Taking pics before sending is not a request it is a RULE!! just blow off this you will not be accepted into the following month if not! Cry Cry

Oh, charge your batteries OR get new ones as that cant be an excuse you have 5 days to get them up and then it is up to the sender to get them up!!

  Wink Now all the mean firm org stuff is said. Cheesy Cheesy.WOOT WOOT LETS party and have fun in this month like the last one I am so proud of how fun and smooth for the most part last month went after the prev. few months I wanted to jump from a tall building with the drama~
            CRAFTY HUGS now lets get to CLAIMING

      ~~First up for round 67 is our last swap claim for round 66~~

muddy21 is our first claim

I live in New England in an old house (1771) in the country with my two teen-aged sons and two cats.  It's a small house so I generally prefer things that are functional or useful as well as decorative, and smaller is usually better than larger.  I enjoy vintage, primitive, folk art, organic (in the broad sense of the word) and whimsical.

I love found or altered objects and tramp art ( http://www.amesgallery.com/FolkArtPages/Tramp.html ).  Re-using, recycling, and re-purposing are all high on my list of good things!  I like things that combine mechanical gadgets, Victoriana and natural history as in steampunkery.  Favored colors are earth-, sea-, or general nature-tones (I love sea glass colors), jewel tones and milk paint colors; not so much the neons and pastels.  I love designs that include birds, animals, insects, trees, rocksmore realistic than cutesy.  Steam trains and retro-50s rocket ships & science fiction are also fun (Journey to the Mushroom Planet sort of thing).  I work in a high school library and seem to be a life-long student myself so journals, writing supplies, note cards and reading or book-related projects are all possibilities.  I love polymer clay things especially the new metallic type Ive seen used for steampunk charms.

I'm not allergic to it, but I dont like the smell of cigarette smoke.  No wool or lanolin ingredients in anything that would be worn or put on my skin (like lotions or soaps); wool for embroidery or crafting is OK.  Food allergies below under "extras."

    * Crafts

      -Altered art/mixed media journal for recording my craft swaps could just be a cover that fits a standard size spiral-bound notebook
      -Embroidery hoop wall art ideas can be found on my wist http://www.wists.com/muddy21/all/?tag2=&offset=0&searchme=   I love trees, birds, doorways, gardens, or your creative design
      -Earring display/holder along these lines http://www.flickr.com/photos/jesscalator/3528840427/  It would be great to have something for posts as well as wires.  Thank you, Katy Mai  Smiley
      -Miniatures fairy houses, gnome houses, Wind in the Willows or Beatrix Potter inspired items, curio cabinets, altered Altoid-tin shrines for indoors or in the garden https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=360546.msg4227455#msg4227455 , or http://www.wists.com/muddy21/01b1630d7418f69589fc2971bfe95d8e
      -Fabric bowl or basket
      -Loaded bead/charm bracelets there are ones I like here http://www.etsy.com/listing/60538405/burgundy-wine-and-rich-purple-with-deep?ref=v1_other_1   but different is good, too
      -Earrings with beads or charms like http://www.wists.com/muddy21/af64c9eb9ddec6ea6c9c0f7ca7841a29?offset=40 for pierced ears, either wires or posts, not too big or long or heavy
      -Thread catcher - beanbag weight, loop or free-standing cup any sort OK   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=360546.msg4227455#msg4227455
      -Needlebook  http://www.wists.com/muddy21/ac0355450fe93313f8d54e139a34fedf
      -Small-ish pincushion or biscornu https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368298.msg4328718#msg4328718   to keep with my embroidery supplies
      -Goatmilk or other homemade soaps prefer organic scents (honey, oatmeal) or spicy rather than heavily floral or sweet

    * Supplies  

      -Embroidery floss of various colors would particularly like to try silk (partial skeins leftover from projects would be just fine!)  Please no neons or bright primary colors.
      -Thread Heaven silicone treatment to use with metallic floss
      -Cotton fat quarters of various colors with small textural patterns, batiks or hand-dyed fabrics that might be useful for making landscape or art quilts
      -Craft books (used is fine) with embroidery or stuffie patterns

      -Buttons of various colors, sizes, shapes
      -Wool felt
      -How-to Needle Felt starter kit or project ideas (I bought a couple of wool sweaters recently at Goodwill but not sure what to do now!)
      -Water soluble fabric stabilizer dont need whole sheets, its for embroidery hoop art, so 3-6 (or so) pieces are fine
    -Ephemera or embellishments for paper arts, ATCs, wall art, etc. for interests as above

    * Extras
      -Back issues of Quilting Arts or their associated magazine titles or special issues

I claim Dawl for Beachy / Sea themed hoopla and maybe something else.

This is my First claim, 0 sent, 0 recieved.

Hi Im Katy and I live with my husband in the UK. We are both rather geeky though Im a nature/animal lover as well. Im a full time student studying for a BA in Creative Writing. I love greens, blues and purples, anything tree themed and animals of all kinds. Im into games such as Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft, Professor Layton, the new Mario Wii game and all the old point and click classics. Im not a big fan of really heavy scents as they give me a headache and Im allergic to peanuts.


A Wisty surprisehttp://www.wists.com/KatyMai

Decorated t-shirts with something geeky ( you know something like Theres no place like written on it) or Mario based for my hubby. Hes XXL in British sizes and would prefer a black base colour.

Anything final fantasy based, seriously anything, we are both in love with them especially FFX and FFVII.

Tree based wall art, I love the new house we have moved into but oh my gosh the walls are bare. Check out my wist for some ideas.

A messenger bag for me to use for college, preferably in a gothic or hippy style.

A small embroidered pouch for me to keep my rune set in. Preferably with a Nordic/gothic/wiccan theme, Yggdrasil for example would be great.

I really really need a new wallet. No coin pocket, just room for notes and cards would be perfect. For ideas on fabrics I like greens and blues and purples.

My tea towels have holes in them so Id love some new ones to go in our new kitchen. Preferably with a geeky/Mario/WoW theme or a nature theme.

Thanks to moving house we now have a dining room table but no settings for it, some place mats and matching coasters would be great!

Handmade lined or unlined journal.

A small shrine based around trees and gemstones.

A pottery spoon rest.

A DSi case in a naturey or Mario theme.

A decorated votive candle holder in a tree theme, dont mind if its etched or painted or what but it needs to be able to have a candle lit in it so maybe not papercraft!

A rune set like this one my wists http://www.wists.com/KatyMai/4ec6164859a268bd85152e74ecc8355c?offset=0 Elder Furthark please but i dont mind what wood you use.

A charm bracelet decorated with runes.

A mousemat for hubby, something programming related, geeky, wow or final fantasy related.

Candles in christmassy, cinnamon, or 'red' smell.

Hearthstone pillows like these here http://www.wists.com/KatyMai/c0252a635a7f3b46e0bd2f0cbec4d142?offset=0

Lavender bunny in any colour/s but green and purple - http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=3

Earth spirits like these ones - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=317094.0


Embroidery hoops of all sizes.

A new pair of round nosed pliers, mine broke  Sad

FQs any pattern I just love fabric.

Any yarn, handmade or shop bought.

Glass or gemstone beads.

Buttons, in blues and purples.

Fake fur, any sizes including scraps.

Any jewellery findings, I can always use more.

Thankyou in advance for claiming me Cheesy
