I claim banga for some baby items Smiley

6th claim | 3 sent | 3 received

:: About Me ::

* I live in PA currently with my hubby of 15 years and NONE of our 6 kids ! woooot, they all moved out finally ! and 2 goldfish that belong to our youngest granddaughter !
* In the next few months hubby and I are packing up the VW Bus ( my mini van ) and hitting the road to live in sunny FL
* I'm a huge football fan - love my Miami Dolphins
* I collect dolphins, anything dolphin makes me happy
* Non smoking, no pet household ( other than the goldfish of course )
* My fave colors are pink, brown, red, green, and blue

I claim bsonlytoots for a fabric dish drying mat.

This is my 5th claim with 2 sent and 2 received.

My name is Mimi and I am a stay at home mom in West Palm Beach, FL.  I love practical, useful items for myself or for my 2 year old son, Sky.  Love nature and nature inspired items.  Favorite colors are green, blue and brown.  I also like red accents.  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 or pink.  I also don't do jewelry or niknaks.

I would love you forever if you made me this shirt in a non-tight/clingy medium or large: http://www.etsy.com/listing/10837611/brave-men-run-in-my-family-adult-large

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!

Fun pajama pants or shorts - size medium

Magazine Holders

Felt Circle Art

Octopus surprise!!  No stuffies though please Smiley

Pool stuff - embellished towels, candle holders, serving tray, yard art - We spend a LOT of time out by the pool in the summer so stuff for out there is great!

Little hand embroidery still in the hoop for my wall - trees, birds, octopus, whatever!  There are a few on my wist that I particularly like.  I really, really, really want this one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/annaleahart/4562411412/

I claim claire313 for a wisty surprise.
5th claim, 3 sent, 2 outstanding (im working on them), I received 2 claims.

 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.  I like green/gray/blue colors or black and white combinations.  Any peaceful shades or patterns are OK.  Thank you! Smiley

Things I would love to get:


 Something featuring interesting type. I am into typography and would love a  journal or pillow cover (or something else)  with some nice letters or words on it.  If you can make a picture made of words - that would be incredible.

Writing journal/altered book.  (mixed papers would be great) Perhaps something with writing prompts or ideas?

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

zippered bag, something around 5x9 inches made from cotton fabric and with lining.

wallet  -see different examples on my wist

water bottle bag/holder

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

I would LOVE this kind of slippers: http://wists.com/puzzler/e3fd698d80ecb769570e9eba3c942033?offset=0 or other slippers from my wist.  Size 9-10

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

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


Circular needles ANY size!

Cable needles

quilting tools or supplies

 black inkpads

any natural yarn (wool, cotton)


Books or magazines with knitting, crochet or sewing projects. I am more interested in great patterns, than in the how to do these crafts.  

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

Hello.  Im located in the United States.  I have no allergies.  But, hubby has sinus issues so nothing too perfumy or too smoke smelling.  Themes I love are:  pirates, pirate ships, octopus, dragons, Harry Potter, Gryffindor, Hogwarts, video games, tattoos, koi, gryffins, phoenixs (the fire bird), burgundy/gold, red/black polka dots, teal/black, knee high socks with stripes/argyle or other cute prints, cupcakes, argyle and other fun prints, cute Japanese prints, 1950s style full aprons and cherry blossoms.  My style is cute/sexy with some geeky/nerd as well.  Think Harry potter scarves, Nintendo shirts, and 1950s retro aprons.  I love playing video games, reading, watching movies, baking bread, crafting and being with my family.  I dont like lace or frilly things, adult or creepy themed crafts, the colors orange/yellow/pastel/neon.

-psp case.  Similar to this.  I have the original fat psp.
-interchangeable belt strap.  Ive got buckles already, but no belt strap.  Regular sized (not like a super skinny one or anything)
-Shirt or hoodie inspired by the big bang theory.  I love the shirts that Sheldon wears.  Mens size small or Juniors Medium in shirts.  Mens small or juniors large in hoodies.   
-Tote bag inspired by these.  Zipper closer and 2 small zipper pockets inside please.  Color wise perhaps browns/teals/creams  or burgundy/gold/black or reds/blacks/greys/white or a combination of colors I like and fun kawaii type prints,  I like polka dots too, tattoo prints, pandas.  And Harry potter themes are always super awesome with me!

I claim missmoppet for tshirt/hoodies in a nerdly or BBT theme.

1st claim (eXcItInG!) with 0 sent and 0 recieved.

Hi! I live in Houston, TX with my partner in crime and our herd of cat minions (no kids). I work for a local healthcare non-profit and am very open minded. About to move into a new condo with my very own craft room and lovely craftster-made things would make the new place feel like home! I am a fairly chill, laid back and nerdy person.

Vitals - I have asthma, so things that are smokey or strong floral scents do me in. Pets are fine though. Wist: http://www.wists.com/zatanna

Themes - Nerdy, spooky, kitschy, mod, rainy day. I love comics (Catwoman is my all time fave), cats, craftiness, coffee, tea, Halloween, Harry Potter-world, old-timey occult/magic themes, reading and tv perusing. I have a lot on my Craftster profile.

Colors/patterns - I tend to prefer black/white/grey and bold/bright colors over pastels or neutral for my own personal stuffs. I put fabrics on my wist bc patterns are too hard to explain! My new craft room will be grey with aqua and yellow. Hoorays! Almost my entire wardrobe is black with some bright colors, and for metallics, I prefer silver toned over gold toned.


Bags - I would really love a bag that is the size of a purse (smallish) but with a long strap that I can wear across my chest. Or just a regular purse-style bag since I have a lot of totes.
Necklaces - I am completely open to any craft medium for necklaces. Style wise, I prefer non-choker. What I tend to wear most often are large and/or chunky pieces...I tend to wear just one large piece often.
Earrings - Same as the necklace schtick, except I prefer dangly to post.
Reusable snack/sandwich bags - My guilt at my ziploc/tin foil usage is killing me!
Lunch bag - I am sick of my insulated one because it's big and inflexible, and sick of the one I made because it has no lining, so I would love a lunch sack that is zippered and lined with something plasticy, but also squishable!
Granny's daughters/squares/motifs - I am open to any fiber type, but may prefer acrylic for blanket making (RH is fine, I am no yarn snob hah). Would prefer square shape motifs so I can stick them in the scrap blanket I am working on.
Bath/body stuff - I esp. would love lip balms, lotions, or body wash items. I tend to shower over baths, so bath bombs and bar soaps are less likely to be used.
Sewing machine cover - Can pm dimensions
Cricut expression cover - Does not need to be fancy, just want to keep the cat hair off.
Ironing mat - For my craft room!
Slippers - Any medium or color is fine, size 10-11 women.
Hat  - I wanted another cloche hat in a dark color - the brimmed ones are my fave!
Pillows - My new craft room will need some pillows (see above for theme etc)
Wist - Something off my wist - it's uptodate! http://www.wists.com/zatanna


Frames/hoops - For small needlework projects.
Fabric - Wists/themes above are general indicators of what I like - Colors I could use in my craft room would be a plus.
Cricut crap- 12x12 or 12x24 mats, blades, deep blade housing etc.
Adhesive vinyl - Any color, for use with said cricut
Needle felting supplies - Always wanted to try this!
Some sort of cooking project type kit - My bf would <3 you as I kinda suck at cooking
Bath/body crafting supplies - Another craft I have wanted to try
Jewerly bits - charms, findings, ring bases, stones, beads etc. Just learning how to do this, so I really don't have a lot of supplies.
Safety eyes
Interfacing - Any kind
Magnets - I have the sheet magnet tape, but need the stronger glue on type
Transfer paper 
Transfer pen thingie
Aida 14 ct  - Black or other color (I have a lot of white/ivory/cream)

Extras: Teas, coffees, mini bits and bobs, cat toys, yarn/fabric scraps

Thanks for choosing me and I will try to make my list prettier next time!!!  Cheesy
Friends don't let friends craft alone :)

Hello, My name is Monica. I live in North Carolina at the beach. I am a happy go lucky girl not to uptight and just love to have fun and enjoy crafts and homemade gifts are wonderful. I have cancer I have to keep saying it as I just know I will kick the shit out of it and win..I am raising my 2 grandkids. It is hard to really do it again but I love being with them and know they are doing great and happy well adjusted kids. I have 2 dogs now as my Buster passed away on the 14th  Cry My heart broke that day. I miss him so much but he had almost 16 years and was never abused like our other 2 that we rescued so he has always had a charmed life.

I'm claiming our fearless leader, babalina58, for a surprise (or two!) She'll just have to wait and see what it (they?) turn out to be! Wink

Claim #4 overall / 2 in transit / 1 received

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

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

Crafty Wishes

 Grin = BIG WISH!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NEW  Grin Grin -- Chibi Marty or Doc BttF Plush. Probably bigger than a medium, but I want to list it anyway. Craftster Noxika makes these awesome plush (like this and this) and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE one made of Marty McFly or Doc Brown from Back to the Future. Can't you just imagine how awesome a Marty with his orange "life vest" jacket or Doc with his wild hair in this style plush would be??

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

 -- Grin  Fitted Style Decorated T-Shirts. Short sleeve, 3/4 length or long sleeve. Fitted (not the "unisex" ones that are boxy) in V-neck, scoop or whatever (just nothing that's so low cut it requires another shirt underneath) in size small or US 4 equivalent. (I like the ones from Target a lot but am open to others too!) I have received a ton and I love them but I also live in fitted tees and more are always welcome. I have a bunch of styles I love WISTED for inspiration. It's getting warm here in Florida - time for some new tees!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 -- Sterling Silver or Gold Plate Jewelry Wire I always need jewelry wire. I need some super fine sterling and/or gold in about 28 gauge. I also love Artistic Wire brand in 24 gauge in silver, copper and brown.

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

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

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


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

Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin
