I claim thedish for a wisty surprise and something supplyish ( is that a word ? )


:: 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 don't much care for animal prints, I do enjoy paisely prints, skulls, and of course dolphin prints or mermaid, sea themed prints - Hubby & I both love nature, some of our favorite animals are wolves, dolphins, manatees, opossums, arctic fox.
* I like things that are useful. I'm not real big on "knick knack" type stuff - at least right now. Don't want to have to drag more with us than we have to when we move
* I love to read. Mostly I read crime, mystery, and true crime novels. Now and then an occasional thriller. I have a Pandigital Novel eReader/tablet and LOVE IT !

Well, now I'm going to claim Dawl for BIG WISH ** Tree Of Life Pendant using my family's birthstones - August, October, November, December. I think that's right up my alley. Grin

Claim #2 / 0 sent / 0 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. thanks J_Kieviet!

   -- 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. I could really use a larger, overnight-type bag of some sort!!

 -- 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 and can send measurements!

NEW -- Kitchenaid Mixer Cover
Mine is the Classic (seen here) and I have a few examples of covers I like 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!)

NEW --Hobbes Plush Ok, I just love Calvin and Hobbes and this plush is awesome. (Free pattern here!)

 -- 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.

NEW --Tree Arm Warmers I think these are really cool. The colors, the tree pattern - just all of it. Really neat!

 -- Knit or Crochet Wist Item - You can find crochet items here and 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 member 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.) It's getting warm here in Florida - time for some new tees!!

 -- 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!!

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

NEW --Embroidered PhoenixFire Designs Logo Shirt If anyone has a computerized embroidery machine where you can take a digital image and put it on a shirt, I would LOVE to get a ladies fitted polo or cute, fitted V-neck tee with my PFD logo. That would rock. (Maybe on navy or grey or something that would make the color pop.)

 --  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.

NEW -- Tree painting like this but, I'd prefer it to be in autumn or spring colors.

NEW --Natural Preserves I'd like some kind of natural fruit preserve/jelly/jam/marmalade. Organic would be awesome. Definitely NOTHING with any artificial sweetener in it since I'm severely allergic. Cherry, grape, orange, apple, etc. - fruity goodness!

NEW -- Red Fox Art I think this hoop is super cute and I love this panting too. I'm just a fan of red foxes.

NEW -- Daffodils - As we're approaching Spring, it always makes me think of my favorite flower, the daffodil. They don't grow here in Florida so I've got some wisted daffodil items here to help usher in Spring.

NEW --Daffodil Spoon Ring Yes, I already listed daffodils in general but I love this. I wear a size 6 on four fingers. I think this is just really cool.

NEW --Embroidered Shirt I really like this idea. Doesn't have to be exact but I think that's a great place to start. Fitted shirt only please, size small if Misses or medium if Jr's cut. Jewel tones, browns, greys, etc. Maybe flowers, trees, branches, etc.? Front back, both - I just like this idea a lot.

NEW --Small Cards I could use some small cards (very petite since I use very small 00 size envelopes to ship!) to include with swaps and items I send out. The themes I like are above. I like writing out a little about the item when I send but the standard sizes don't fit in my envelopes!

 -- 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!

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, rondelles 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
 (examples... Chrome Diopside rondelles or....Songea Sapphire (yellows/orange in color) or... Tundra Sapphire (autumn colors) etc, etc, etc!!)

  -- 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.

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

NEW --Epson Inkjet Ink Yes, odd request but I'm always needing to print things for crafts and I never have ink! There's only so much I can print at work. Wink Epson Stylus Photo R340 uses T048120 black and T048920 color ink.

NEW --Postcard Stamp I think this idea is super fun!

NEW --Earring Findings I could use some fancier sterling and/or gold (plate/vermeil) ones, especially chandelier style like this or this or this or this or this, etc.

NEW --Shirt dye kit I love gradient dyed shirts and various types of tie dye but I've never done it myself. Maybe some sort of kit to try it? I found this one as an example, but I'm sure there's more out there. Something that has everything I need to try it would be great since I don't know where to start.

NEW --Tackle Box(es)/Craft Storage Box I store my beads in them. Ones with dividers that can move and be resized are the best. I also like something like this or this that hold tools and other things in addition. I craft on my living room couch so I'm always taking things out and putting them away. It's a pain. Some sort of easily carted box would be very helpful. (Maybe something like this is available at a craft store with a 40/50% off coupon..? Oh, like this maybe?)

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


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

Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

I claim phoenixfiredesigns for cabled fingerless gloves.

This is my 1st claim with 0 sent and 0 received.

My name is Mimi and I am a stay at home mom in West Palm Beach, FL.  I love practical, useful items for myself or for my 2 year old son, Sky.  Love nature and nature inspired items.  Favorite colors are green, blue and brown.  I also like red accents.  Favorite things are octopus, birds and trees.   Really, I adore those 3 things so if you send something with any of those themes, chances are I will really like it.  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 other than bubble bath and bar soap.  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 am not huge on floral scents or anything too ruffle-y or frilly.  Also don't like scary themed items or religious items.


THIS with all different buttons rather than all the same.  Love it!!!!!!!

This quote done either similar to this or in your own special way!

Love this bird art!  Doesn't need to be out of wood, any medium is great!

8x10 black and white artwork of any utensils to hang in my kitchen.  A big spoon or fork would be great - or a spork!!

Button tree!! Doesn't have to be just like this but something similar would be awesome!

Owl Pillow but in green or blue instead of purple

A fun ring holder to hold my wedding ring that sits on my bathroom counter since I never wear it Smiley

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

Coiled fabric bowl - blues, greens, browns, reds or turquiose

How cute is THIS?!?

Curtain Tie Backs similar to these (in red or brown)

Paper roses or other flower to stick in a vase

*Warning - ridiculous wish!!*  A felted basket similar to THIS in blues or greens or both.

*Warning - another huge wish!!* Something similar to THIS designed to hang on the wall

A toddler sized backpack for my son.  You would be my hero if you could do something with trains on it - maybe similar to this one (although I would prefer his name not be on it):

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?  Or a tree!! Smiley 
Here are a few examples of other stuff I like:

I would love you forever if you made me this shirt in a non-tight/clingy medium or large.

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

Felted pebbles like these for the bottom of a glass vase

Pottery - I like funky, different stuff.  Useful containers are always great!  Especially could use a sponge holder for by the kitchen sink like this.

Fun pajama pants or shorts - size medium

Magazine Holders

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!

Hooded towel that looks like a shark for my 2 year old

Funky wind chime or whimsy collection to hang out by the pool - we have covered areas too so it doesn't have to be totally weatherproof

Hoopla!  Trees, birds, octopus, whatever!  There are a few on my wist that I particularly like.  I really, really, really want these:

Decorated or painted letters of the alphabet.  I would love to do an alphabet wall with all different shapes and sizes of letters for my son since he is learning it right now.

Cloth napkins - stenciled, plain, whatever

Thomas the Train standard pillowcase for my son

Handmade Christmas ornaments -  nothing religious please

Yarn bowl

Interesting baskets to store junk in

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.

Yoga pants for a short person (size 4 or 6)

Wooden buttons

Button bouquet in fun colors

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

I claim mimiw for "I'm Sew Happy" wall art


My name is Teresa.  I live in Ga. with my wonderful hubby of 30 years and our two grown daughters ( who have both returned to the nest to finish their educations).  I have a grown stepson and am Mimi to a 14 year old boy and 8 year old girl.   We share our little homestead with a pet cow, mini donkey ( he's something of a cute bully), three pygmy goats, and six cats.

I use swaps to collect OOAK gifts for my friends and family so my wist reflects quite a variety of tastes.  Please read tags/notes carefully if you choose something wisty for color preferences, sizes, etc.  I am completely okay with you taking something from my wist and making it in your favorite medium rather than the one pictured. 

I can't tolerate the smell of smoke or lavender.


Enormous Wish Clothing for an 18" doll like the American Girl dolls.  There are examples on my wist, but I would be thrilled with anything you chose to make.  Accessories like hats and purses would be welcome too.  Luckdragon and muddy21 have claimed me for a couple of things!!!, but I desperately want more.  If you choose to claim me for this, pm me so we can discuss what's already being made.  Thanks!

Huge Wish   A book safe made from one of the classics, and old encyclopedia, or a book of poetry( maybe a damaged one or one of those really cheap ones you can get now)

handmade thank you cards in any of these themes:  bees, bugs, crayons, cute cats, cute mushrooms
colorful polka dots and/or stripes

bee themed hanging plastic bag holder (prefer pretty/realistic print to cute)

cat crinkle sack covered in one of these themes:  skulls ( sugar skulls or real looking ones), sushi, pirates, Arsenal soccer, or just black and white

Mega Huge Wish!Anything Arsenal themed... really, anything!

yoga pants in women's size 2.  Any color, any style

beaded tree sculpture ( not jewelry) in amber/orange/brown (small, even tiny is fine)

cat tent that looks "piratey"

BIG WISH black scoodie in fleece with hood part lined in something silky so my hair won't get crazy.  I would want silky inside black as well

sz. 2 blue and white polka dot swirly skirt ( for a 5' tall woman) ( simple is great, doesn't need to be super swirly, just have a bit of swish in it)

sz. 51/2 mukluks with fake leather soles ( looking for that speed knitter again)

Big Wish a set of fabric coasters in cranberry, dark green, and possibly cream ( simple is best)

An altered journal in a world geography theme.  I know almost nothing on the subject and feel that it's time to do something about that.  I intend to teach myself and since its such an extensive subject, it would need to be a kind of large journal/notebook.

A little sock monkey fan pull.  I've never seen one but would love to have one for my daughter.  I'm assuming it would ceramic or maybe poly clay?

A large, simple duffle bag with a zipper.  Even though the size should be large, I only want a very simple one.  Pockets are not necessary if you'd rather skip them.  Would love a medium to heavy weight fabric in a pretty blue print ( polka dots would be a plus).  Would love adjustable straps but if you don't want to mess with them, just make the straps a little shorter than normal ( it's for someone who is only 5 ft. tall)


Thread Heaven
silk embroidery floss ( I realize this is expensive so a teeny little package would be great!)
one of those needlework magnifiers that hang around the neck ( used is great)
wood-look plastic embroidery hoops, especially ovals
wool felt ( scraps are fine, its for a penny rug) (I really want wool felt, not felted wool.. does that make sense?)
any Japanese craft book ( except crochet)
bias tape makers
Enormous Wish  any knitting or weaving loom ( any size, made of anything) ( I now have the small oval knifty knitter that makes socks so any others)
sublime stitching transfers for hand embroidery ( monkey love, zombies, or vital organs) ( It's okay if you've used a couple of the patterns and just send me what you didn't use from the package)
transfer pens
all purpose thread ( new please) (no black, white, blue, green or pink)
buttons in greens and fall colors only
stabilizer for embroidery projects
any mod podge or your favorite fixatives and/or sealants
any supplies to help me get started with quilling or resin casting


vintage children's books
Bunny Suicide anything
cat toys/treats
gluten free treats ( people treats, not cat   Smiley)

Thank you so much for claiming me!

I will claim maurer for a travel pillow and perhaps some other items too!!

This is my first claim
Nothing sent
Nothing received

Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 38 and im a stay at home mom to three boys in Northern California. I moved here from OH and love it!! We just purchased our first home and are thrilled!!  I like to sew, quilt.  I am starting to get into embroidery and can crochet a little bit.  Im very much into girly type stuff and love anything regency -titanic era. I also love 30s-40s things as well.  I am allergic to nickel.
Here are my wishes
Anything off my wist list is great!!

Mediums (more can be found in my list  Grin)
~~Jewelry (chokers, bracelets, earrings but please no nickel posts)
~~Snood in a 40s style (prefer a crochet or knitted tie versus elastic (stays on better)
~~Aprons!!  Even though I sew them I would love to see what others come up with!!  I would also like two childrens apron (both are under 12yrs old)  Transformers and Spiderman a plus!! (one claim at a time is fine needless to say  Grin)
~~My MIL is a bingo fanatic!!!  A bingo bag or a nice seat cushion would be great for a gift.
~~New purse  I am in need of a large school bag/tote!!  The strap on mine is starting to come loose.
~~Handwarmers like the ones offered at Hot Topic.com. Victorian Goth ones would be perfect.
~~Crazy Quilted Purse.  Or any purse made by you!! 
~~Regency or Victorian era Reticule
~~Petticoat (cotton or cotton blend please) either knee or ankle length with some fullness to it as I like poufy skirts !! I actually wear these a lot!! (Im 5'5 email for length) (received one from farmgirljane and would love more!!)
~~I would love some soft wool socks!!  Size 7 feet
~~I have a weird obsession with knitted cuffs!! I love them!!  Chocolate brown, red, white, mustard yellow.

Crafted Items~~


I love this shawl and I am willing to wait longer if anyone will make it for me. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CivilWarShawlKAL/  Im not picky about color.  Would be just happy to even have one.


**Civil War Era Cape called a Mathilde Mantilla (Think of a Civil War era Poncho.  This is basically what it is)  Here is a link to the pattern http://www.uvm.edu/%7Ehag/godey/images/s5902170.jpg  and here is an example of what it looks like http://www.thegracefullady.com/civilwargowns/ready-mades_silkmantle.htm Measurements will be provided.  Wool blend or Corduroy would be great. Hood is decorative and is not functional. It only uses around 3 yards.  I would also prefer it lined for warmth. It would be great if I could retain the pattern as well for future projects.  (I can sew I just cant figure out how to make it <frown>) without a pre-drafted pattern.  OR If someone with any drafting skills wouldnt mind drafting a pattern to my size I could play around with it and make my own (If I have a pattern to work with)

Primitive Raggedy Ann doll (An example is in my wists)

Victorian caplet.  At least waist length please email for length.

Slat bonnet or corded can provide links if needed.  Any pattern should do as they are all basically the same result.

I would love some embroidered handkerchiefs. Monogrammed with my initials would be nice too!!

Victorian slippers.  This pattern is from 1864

Im looking for special kind of apron for my husband.  He cooks the eggs at breakfast time and is a ninjitsu martial artist.  I would love an embroidered apron that has a ninja/martial artist holding a spatula in each hand and says "Egg Master" underneath.  Fabric and colors are open as long as its durable and holds up.

Other Crafts~~~
Bars of handmade soap (the kind that is made from lye).  Lavender, oatmeal, goats milk, citrus are great however any scents are welcome!!  Or soap supplies/kit as I would love to learn how to make my own. Plain Pre-made soap bars that are ready to have scents, colors, herbs ect melted and added in are appreciated too as I have young children and am concerned with having lye in the house. Room sprays, bubble baths (im looking for some really good foamy bubbles!!).

Bath bombs.  Also jars of bath salts would be fantastic as well. Im good for now!! Thanks!!

Im looking for some scented oils.  I would rather these be handmade or from specialty shops and not from stores like joanns or hobbylobby ect.

Hand crafted candles are great too. Prefer either fruit and or spice scented ones or lavender (only floral scented one I like).  Im also interested in the scented candle chunks that you can melt and scent your house with.  I have received some but always appreciate more!!

Whimsey jar are really fun!!

Im loving the moon jars!!  Would love to have one!!

Im looking for a serving tray that I can bring snacks from the kitchen to the living room.  Asian or Victorian influence a real plus.  Ive seen some nice ones made from frames (glass removed)

Im also looking for a picture frame.  about 1.5 inches or more wide/thick on the sides.  What I would like is a thin wooden back fitted to it. I dont need the glass for it.  An old vintage frame would be preferred for this.  Im going to use it as a center piece tray for candles (if you can visualize it will lay flat on the table) I can take a pic of the pic in my book if you would like to see my inspiration.

Shower curtain.  Victorian style please!!

My 18 year old loves Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before Christmas so anything with him on (appropriate for a guy) would be fantastic

Books that teach drawing as well as an art kit of some kind put together would be great.  My 12 year old loves to draw comic books!!

Handcrafted Jewelry with Victorian influence

Victorian/Edwardian style chalk board.   Heres the idea.  Antique frame or mirror with glass/mirror removed (small or medium size if perfect).  Where the glass/mirror was is the area to write in (im not sure what would be used to create the chalkboard slate as I only know of the special paint).  Saw one in Victorian Trading Co.  I love the idea!!

Im looking for a table runner for our new table we recently purchased.  Looking for something, of course Victorian style as well.  Measurements can and will be provided.  Want something rich looking but affordable to make!!  Also looking for new fabric dinner napkins (18").

Sewing items~~ Anything related to sewing is welcome!!  Trims, fabric, thread ect.(Gently used too)
Im also interested in any older sewing supplies as well from antiques stores and such (I have a tracing wheel i bought for $4 so they can be affordable).  Patterns (Burda Mag, Modern, Historic and Historic inspired too)!!  I need envelopes with a size 14 & 16 included in the envelope for dresses and tops and a 16 for skirts.  Thanks!!
Vogue~~ .. .2884...2968...1239 ... 8352...8003,,,v1178,,,v1172

Im especially trying to find a Simplicity Jumper Pattern from 1948 pattern is on my wist list (36" bust if possible)

Fabric Mystery Bundle from Fabricmart.com  http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com/xcart/804051-10-yard-Mystery-Fabric-Bundle-Assortment.html

New or Unwanted Issues of Threads ( I have all of 2003 2006-2008 Though I dont have issues 137 or 138, 140  !!!) probably best to check with me on numbers!! and Burda World of Fashion Magazine !! (I have a few ...1/06** 7/03**4/05** 3/08**)  (used is fine) Knipmode, Ottobre, Patrones, La Mode

Magazines (new or used!!)  Gothic Lolita Bible Magazine, Beading and Jewelry making, Knitting and Crochet, Magazines from Somerset Studios.  Here is a link to their site and the magazines they offer http://www.stampington.com/html/main_magazines.html  Im especially looking for Haute Handbags!!!!   As well as cooking mags!!

Purse supplies of all sorts (handles, magnetic snaps, rings ect).  Silver Victorian clasps would be great too (can be found at Hancocks).  I desperately need some magnetic snaps!!

Scrapbooking items  (trims, paper, stickers anything!!).  Im also looking for some things like brads, ribbons, fancy paper, scissors.  Im also looking for corner punchers, rulers for making fancy torn edges and hole punchers (I have a heart one).  Also plain colored or white blank greeting type cards would be wonderful!! Good for now!!


Costume jewelry or broken pieces that can be recycled into new jewelry

I really really need some cub/boy scout related scrapbooking items such as paper, stickers ect!!!!

Also looking for decorated photo albums.  One is for non American candy wrappers that I collect!!

Handcrafted cards by you would be great!!

Im also looking for a decorated (painted/decoupaged/stained ect) box for my scrapbooking paper 12X12.  Would prefer an old vintage look.

Stamps and ink pads

Beading supplies like wire 18 gauge or higher, beads, spacers.  Im also needing jewlery making supplies too.  I would love some Swarovski jewelry supplies!!  Also ANY bead findings from Blue Moon Beads of their Lost and Found and/or Manor House (or any that features Victorian/Edwardian pieces) collection would be wonderful.

Yarn!! I love yarn!! I would prefer not to receive any 100% acrylic.  However wool, cotton, silky whatever!!  All colors are welcome (well except neon bright bright colors).

Im looking for corset making supplies. boning, 13.5" busk, lacing!!

Sublime Embroidery patterns ~~Gothic, Pinup, Craftopia, Sushi Bar, Dress up

My husband collects law enforcement patches.  I would love to get a bunch for him for him.  If you live near a prison, jail or other LE facility perhaps they would let you have one???  He gets his this way by asking and they are usually happy to give him one.  My husband loves Asian things as well as LE related (he is a correctional officer) and anything relating to the park service (Smokey the Bear gets double marks lol!!). He is a fan of Bruce Lee and any DVD (he has VHS) movies or any craft with him inspired would be wonderful!!  Or perhaps a stenciled t-shirt of Bruce Lee.  He would be thrilled to receive something just for him (It also continues him to encourage me to swap.  Ya know totally his idea)

Also I would love to be able to get him a hooded jacket with a nin symbol on it!! Stenciled or embroidered (Will send link to a pic if needed)
