I claim atsuko for a dead fish hat for Lana in greens & blues.

5th claim/1 in transit/2 received

My list is terribly long but I'm terrified of stalling the thread. *blush*

About Me:
My name is Kristen & this is my first time doing an Ongoing Wish Swap. I live in Houston, TX with my husband & 3 kiddos. I am completely obsessed with yarn, rainbows, coffee, dark chocolate, cloth diapering, couponing, & handmade items.

-My oldest son, Dominic, is obsessed with Legos and Mario.

*Buttons! Check my Etsy favorites, my username is DomesticChaos.
*Zippers, velcro, elastic, snaps

*Tie dye kits or dyes for cotton fabric (extra rubber bands would be awesome too lol)

I claim kbauer for -Paintings, wall art; I LOVE this: http://wists.com/kbauer/16488dabe5a59a5b3077d6ed26cde668?offset=20 (rainbow painting) and a Pinterest suprise.


My name is Jessica. I live in FL with my husband of 2 years, our dog
and 2 cats. I love my life. My favorite crafts are card making,
embroidery, mosaics and knitting. My favorite colors are any shade of
green, blue and pink. I am so excited to join this swap. This is like
Christmas, but better! Thank you in advance to anyone who claims me. I
love anything that is made with my interests in mind. I tried to be
specific below to help the crafter out, I am not picky and I will love
ANYTHING that is made for me. Now for the fun parts!!

* Black rainboots with gold stenciled fleur de lis. Size 8 or 10.
Weird request, I know. I saw someone wearing these and found them
online for $40-60. I just can't do that, but I figure it can't be too
difficult to stencil or paint the decorations on.

* Stenciled t shirts, size medium (most brands). Either the state of Louisiana with the phrase "shaped like a boot because we kick ass" or one with the word "Love" across the chest, where the L is the state of Louisiana and the O is a heart.

*Ruffled shower curtain, like this one: http://pinterest.com/pin/28002261/. This may be too big a wish,
but if someone has the fabric available and the skill - I want this

* Citrus fruit paintings. Any size, for my kitchen. Something like along these lines:http://pinterest.com/jrenewright/kitchen/ A citrus clock would be cool too.

* A lap desk in colors that are bright and fun, something like this:

* Pillow covers with initials for my couch, any size. Id like them in
shades of green, not neon more earthy.  Patterns are also great.  My
first initial is J, my husbands is B, and our last name initial is W,
so Id like a set of either J and B or 2 Ws. Heres a link to a my
inspiration on Craftster:

*Drinking glasses with citrus fruit. Either stenciled or etched. I
based my kitchen decorations around some Starbucks coffee mugs with
big oranges, lemons, and limes, so those would be my preferences on
the glasses as well.  Any shape/size galss is fine. More than likely
theyll be on display anyway. Along this same line, Im interested in
coffee mugs, plates or bowls in this theme. Basic pottery with paint
and glaze. I have images I can email of the center piece of my

*A recipe box with matching recipe cards. I saw a set of these once in
a happy homemaker swap and I decided I NEEDED to have one! Any kind of
decorated box to hold a standard size card to write or glue recipes
to. Ideally this would be something that I could continue to add too
over time, so while the box and dividers could be embellished the
cards should be relatively plain so that I can easily coordinate
additional cards later. Either citrus fruit themed,
orange/green/yellow themed, or cute food themed.  I have a few
examples in my Etsy faves.

*Aprons for all seasons! I have a Christmas one that I LOVE and a
brand new Easter and St Patty's that are awesome, and I would like others. Id
like holiday themes, so any holiday at all would be cool. My kitchen
is citrus themed (curtains are Alexander Henry citrus pattern, so that
would be a good one too!), and I also love stars, polka dots, and
rainbows. Cute foods like cupcakes would make a good one too. I like
full and half aprons, pockets or no pockets, pom poms - whatever!

*Pretty much anything with a buck, since my husband's name is Buck. I
have a bunch of stuff in my Etsy faves in this theme. I espcially
would like some sort of jewelry so that I can take him with me
everywhere <3

*Homemade peppermint soap. No just the scent, but actually peppermint
so it gives that tingly feeling.

*Organizational/office stuff like decorative file folders, push pins,
paper clips. For the pins and clips I prefer fabric or poly clay
decorations, buttons are cute too.

*Stenciled t shirts in Always Sunny (Charlie is my fav) or Veronica
Mars themes size Med

*A hanging sign of some sort that says "We get along in our RV" with a
picture of an RV would be super cute. Small size, like to hang on the
wall in an RV.

Any kind of Pinterest suprise: http://pinterest.com/jrenewright/

Jewelry charms. I have lots of charm bracelets to make for Christmas,
so pretty much anything will do. Whatever it is, I am sure it will fit
someone's personality!
Various size chains
Broken glass, broken tiles, or any little trinkets that would be good
for mosaics.
Blank pre cut cards or cardstock for making cards.
Embroidery hoops and floss

Fotunes from fortune cookies
Paint sample cards, like from the paint section of home depot
Yarn and ribbon scraps, at least 4 inches. For a scrappy scarf I'd like to make.
Always loooove gummi candy
Scraps of fabric good for embroidery projects

So sorry to hear PFD is not well Sad - will be thinking of her and keeping her in my prayers.

I claim iheartzb for a holiday apron (Valentines Day).

4th claim, 1 outstanding, 0 in transit, 2 received.

Hello, Im Kirsten, Im a full time student. I live in New Zealand, married with two stepsons and two spoilt cats. I love art and I do a lot of drawing and printmaking.

Colours: particularly blue/green/teal/aqua, natural tones, or black and white; not so keen on pastels and pinks/purples (though dusty/dull shades can be nice).
Metals: silver, copper or antiqued finishes, rather than gold.
Styles: plainish and textured rather than very patterned. Natural linen, monochromatic prints rather than very multi-coloured. Some styles I particularly like are mid-century modern, Scandinavian, Japanese (but not kawaii).

Think artsy-fartsy rather than cutesy when crafting for me Smiley

No allergies. I prefer natural fibres, but not exclusively. Im happy to chat, and easy to please. *** for things I particularly want (if that's helpful), but I will be delighted with anything on the list!

Thank you for picking me!!



* wisty surprise - http://wists.com/jemimah My wist will give you a good picture of my tastes inspired by rather than an exact replica is great, so feel free to get creative Smiley 

* a Star Trek or Doctor Who thingy, whatever you like to make, my faves are Spock, tardis and daleks. (Useful rather than decorative is usually my preference, but any Spock, tardis, or dalek item that lands in my letterbox will find a home). Some ideas Tardis journal, etui, needle book; daleks on anything; Spock stationery, journal. Great Spock pattern here
* pick another one of my fave things and make something in your favourite craft medium (again, great if its useful) e.g. fox, British robin, robot (more in profile info)
* things to put other things in box, organiser, project holder, etc. always welcome
* protective folder to store artwork in A4 or A3 would be great
*  cool/or fun/or vintage-y/or modern pendants or brooches, in any medium - metal, fabric, polyclay. (I love jewellery and have a silly amount of it already, so I may use these for other creative purposes, e.g. embellishing purses, books, home decor things - so a few fun bits and pieces would be better than something very precious Smiley)

* a pockety project bag I always have several projects on the go, so use these a lot, different styles and sizes all welcome (I love my Mimi project bag, and would happily receive another one Wink)
* Plain and sturdy zippered totebag/storage bag
* organiser things (e.g. project holder, thing for storing small supplies and bits) any size. Some ideas in wist, but other styles are good too.
* sewing ideas (if you want to make cushions/cushion covers, you can mail them unstuffed for easier postage)
* pot mitts/pot holders - something amusing, or one of my fave themes, or just simple. I quite like the long double ended style.
fabric buckets are great! I like them quite big (grocery bag size, or even bigger), but you don't need to put interfacing or padding/batting in them, so they can fold up flat for easy posting. They don't need to be fancy, plain and sturdy is fine. Short handles are useful, but not essential.
*** a Star Trek redshirt pincushion!
* NEW A cover for my kobo with the corner thingies so I can read without taking it out.

* hand dyed or hand spun yarn
* handknitted wool socks (womens size 9-10, any colour) (I know, this is a big one!)
* socks/slippers for wearing around the house something simple to make, not fancy maybe made of old felted jumpers or something? (womens size 9-10) I am not fussy about the style, this is all about comfort. I will be working at home all year ...
* if youre interested in knitting something, these are some things I want in my ravelry faves (I dont necessarily want all the other things in my ravelry faves though Smiley) ravelry wants there are some smaller things like hats and mitts in there, and a couple of crochet things too. Some good colours for knits dull denim blue, dull greyish rose, chartreuse, rich or dull red (not too orange-y or dark please), teal.
*** it's getting colder here so fingerless mitts have moved up my wishlist again! I like ones with thumbs rather than just thumb slits, but other than that I'm pretty flexible on styles - there are heaps of different patterns I like in that ravelry link. I wear these every day in the winter.
* wisty things made of felt or felted wool
* crochet granny square slippers

* handmade stamps in a theme I like (see my profile and wists), e.g. birds, frogs, fish, trees, art related, Tardis, dalek, Star Trek
* stationery notecards or paper, its all good (bonus points for Star Trek or Dr Who theme!)
* stationery ideas

* handmade ceramic item, esp. in celadon green (but any colours are good) ceramic ideas
* hair sticks/comb/pin or shawl pin not too girly please, see wist

* or something else that I havent thought of, that you think Id like!

CRAFT SUPPLIES (many of these things are VERY expensive here, more than 2x US prices)

* real silk for embroidery, any colours, any brand, any type its hideously expensive where I live (its probably not that cheap where you live, but I bet its cheaper than here! a very small envelope will be cheap to post, and will make me very happy Smiley). I particularly love Soie d'Alger (made by Au Ver Soie). If you send me some Soie d'Alger, I will also send you a tiny pretty made with it by way of extra thanks. Smiley 
    (A few OWSers have sent me silk now, and I <3 it all! Thank you!)
* interesting embroidery supplies (please stick with quality over quantity, Id much rather have a tiny envelope with a few lovely skeins/little things than lots of cheap floss/beads, and it's also cheaper for postage!) The sort of stuff I like is DMC, anything silk or linen, Au Ver Soie, Japanese stuff, bits for goldwork (purl, kid, etc.), handmade/hand dyed, quirky things. Vintage/second hand is fine.  No Aida please.
*** Id really like to try the DMC Naturals linen embroidery floss.
*** NEW a q-snap frame or two 11 x 17 and/or 11 x 11 would be great
*** nice sock yarn! Machine washable would be great, I keep felting my socks!
* Noro yarn, other silk/luxury yarn, artisan yarn (I have a great local source for good wool yarns, so while I love that too, its not worth you mailing it to me Smiley)
*** NEW stainless steel yarn like this or this
* NEW Kool Aid for dying yarn, blues and greens, purple (never tried this before, so your advice is welcome too Smiley)
* nice paper - e.g handmade, japanese, printmaking, textured, any colour or weight - it's for printmaking, so plain or subtle rather than very patterned is best.
* small art supplies items:-
     - pencils, markers and pens (Prismacolor/Derwent/Caran D'Ache/Posca for example, or similar artist grade things think quality rather than quantity, just a few nice things would be fab! and cheap to mail)
     - peel and sketch charcoal pencils
     - drypoint etching supplies (roulette, plastic for etching)
     - inkpads, little stencils, stamps, etc.
*** 100% wool felt, eco felt < Ive never seen eco felt available here (I have stacks of ordinary synthetic felt already though)
* bamboo circs (I have quite a few sizes in metal and plastic, but no bamboo. Long cables best, but any welcome.)
* DMC StitchBow floss holders - just the gold coloured sticks (I have plenty of the plastic pockets to put them in)
* small sewing supplies rickrack, bias binding, cotton tape/ribbon, grosgrain
* blanks for pendants or brooches (not shiny gold though)
* nice cotton or linen fat quarters or fat eighths - the selection in the shops here is rubbish! There's heaps of wisted fabric I like to give you some ideas. I would particularly love this b&w cat fabric, this gorgeous fabric, and plain linen or wool fabric (natural, grey, green, blue). Also wool doctors flannel (for needlebooks), if its easily available where you live.
* crafty magazines Burda or Anna (either English or German), Vogue Knitting, Verena, or any awesome US sewing/knitting mag.
*** NEW I'd love to get these knitting patterns - I particularly want Lalique, the cat socks, and the Jackson Pollock socks - (no postage costs to buy patterns online either!) Smiley
*** NEW some good pinking shears (for example)

* yarn leftovers/oddments in any shades of blue or green, anything over about 1/4 ball (~16 metres or more) will be useful for my project. Wool or wool blends preferred please, any weight.
* I always enjoy bookmarks, vintage/interesting buttons, etc.
* small chipboard shapes
* no candy (I like it TOO much)

Smiley Smiley Thank you to everyone who has sent me lovely things!!! Some things are still on my list, because I love what you sent, and I am happy to receive similar things again.

NB. New Zealand has tough biosecurity at the border. This is very unlikely to apply to this swap, but just in case ... Please dont send natural materials (feathers, leaves, wood, seeds e.g. lavender, etc.) Everything on my list is absolutely fine to send, but PM me if youre unsure about something. Thanks  Smiley

Im Rachel, Im 22 and I like in the UK. Im 32 weeks pregnant with my first baby and me and my fianc are in the process of buying our first house have just bought our first house . I love anything punky, retro or Kitsch. I adore polkadots, stripes and owls. Im always reading (currently the wheel of time series) sewing and playing video games. I also enjoy rock climbing and kayaking but Ive had to put those on hold for a while until bumps here.
We are planning to have a Nintendo themed nursery but the rest of our house will be pretty neutral with bright accessories.
