IMPORTANT: Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0 this is a great tip for being a great swapper and the link to all swap rules are there too Smiley

Please bookmark this thread  post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything also, please bookmark the discussion and the gallery threads!

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 69.

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. I.E. 4/1/1 = 4 claims-1 in transit-1 received by partner

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 FIFTEEN MED 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!If not I will skip you and or remove your claim!!  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 UP TO 3 wishes at one time as per the orgs discretion, others are allowed 2 wishes again as per the org dis..  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish at a time until your crafts are received for this month.  HOWEVER the orgs reserve the right to tell you that you may only claim one or two items at a time if you have had issues in the past with shipping late or poor communication etc!!
Do not choose over your given limit.

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***

we have had in the past a few swappers think it is OK to toss some crap in a box and ship it. This is NOT the swap for you as this is a HIGH QUALITY crafting swap!!

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, pintrests, ETSY etc

YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS (14 days from the time you claim)TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR.This starts from the time you claim must be out the door BY the 14th day!

( 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 $20-30usd worth of store bought items )
Feedback will be given as soon as you have sent - received -posted pics but will be up to 2 weeks after the swap closed if you do not post pics and this will be noted and you might not get allowed back in the next round if you cant do this! Please take pics before you ship! This is a rule not an option!!!


Pay close att. to your partners allergies and wishes IF you send something that is on the list of allergies, etc you WILL be required to send again! No argument on this we cant have anymore of the swappers PM that they got something that is clearly in their list of things they HATE and or have allergies of.....

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( on the 7th day) you can and or 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
If the threads stall too long the orgs can claim to get it moving again but try not to however.

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, Thread update and approval feedback.
LINDYV321 will be or co Organizer in charge of the gallery Smiley and to make sure things run smooth and just be her wonderful self Smiley THANK YOU LINDY FOR BEING SO WONDERFUL!

You must have your wish list saved in your computer before you make any claims as to not stall the thread Smiley

The first person up this round is going to be the lovely Casey1201

My name is Casey and I live in Southern Colorado with my love and our 3 furbabies (dogs). Its a drastic change from the sunny San Diego I grew up in but love it here nonetheless. I will officially be a college graduate May 7th and am an animal welfare officer for the Humane Society (love my job). We like rustic style, like a little whimsy county.

I love aqua, teal, chocolate brown, the color combo of ocean blue and beige for house stuff. I also like aqua, red and white together and aqua yellow and white. I enjoy the outdoors, animal rescue, reading, rough housing with my little family, pretending to clean my craft room, coffee, the scent of baked goods, mixing hippie style with a little rock, the San Diego Chargers and peppermint hot cocoa.

Big Wishes!

I claim Casey1201 for something for her wall of art and hoops.

First claim this round. 1/0/0

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.
* pick another one of my fave things and make something in your favourite craft medium (again, great if its useful, but not essential) e.g. fox, British robin, robot (more in profile info)
* things to put other things in box, bag, wallet, purse, organiser, 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 bag lots of different size pockets for projects/art supplies, any style or size, doesnt have to have any zippers or be a complicated design
*** a tardis pockety bag would be truly awesome
* Plain and sturdy zippered totebag
* a tea cosy sewn (stencilled/appliqu/embroidered/whatever), rather than knitted. Simple, plain style great. Made from recycled felted wool would be cool too. I can send measurements. Themes (optional):- Cake or Death? (Eddie Izzard quote); Dalek (I dream of one with a dalek saying Insulate! in fact I might just have to make this myself Cheesy); some sort of Star Trek or Dr Who theme
* something embroidered (hand or machine, a panel for me to make into something, or a finished item basically, anything you think I might like!)
* organiser things (e.g. project holder, thing for storing small supplies and bits) any size. (I love the things Ive received, I always need more though! Smiley) Some ideas in wist, but other styles are good too.
* sketch book cover to fit spiral-bound A3, A4, or A5, whichever size you feel like making.
* sewing ideas (if you want to make cushions/cushion covers, you can mail them unstuffed for easier postage)
* awesome pot mitts - something amusing!
*** NEW a pincushion like this oh how I want one of these!!
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.
*** awesome brooches like this, but saying "sewing machine", or "make it sew"

* 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).
*** 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. I particularly like cabled designs and Knucks. I wear these every day in the winter.
* wisty things made of felt or felted wool
* NEW crochet granny square slippers - I like the colours in the first pic (aargh, they changed the pic last I looked, they were teal, mint and eggplant, I think), but other colours are fine too.

* handmade stamps in a theme I like (see my profile and wists), e.g. birds, frogs, fish, trees, art related, Tardis, dalek, Star Trek
* Star Trek or Dr Who themed stationery notecards or paper, its all good
* 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! I'm always happy to get more, as I do use it and love it so!)
* 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.
* silk or embroidered fabric, Japanese fabric, kimono fabric, good linen for embroidery, wool doctors flannel (for needlebooks), natural coloured linen (just smallish pieces of fabric are fine; no bulk fabric Id love it, but it may bankrupt you to mail it) - theres lots of fabric I like in my wist.
*** nice sock yarn!!
* 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)
* 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/fun cotton 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
* crafty magazines, (used is fine, vintage ones are cool too) Burda or Anna (either English or German), Vogue Knitting

* 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, little pouches, etc.
* small chipboard shapes, a little paper ephemera (maps, vintage, black and white, foreign language)
* 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

Okay, here we go. This is my first time doing this, so please bear with me and let me know if I do something wrong.

I claim babalina58 for a Lorax doll & a couple fun little extras.

This is my first claim so I'm 1/0/0

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. Ive just recently found the hoopla love and want to start a collection for my craft room/office. I also love the look of patchwork and scrappy.
-I like polka dots, stripes, birds, owls, trees, fruit prints.
-My oldest son, Dominic, is obsessed with Legos and Mario.
-My daughter, Kaitlin, is obsessed with unicorns, rainbows, & Rainbow Brite.
-My youngest son, Seth, is into coloring (Crayola Color Wonders are huge at our house), books, & Thomas the Train.
-I am obsessed with the Wizard of Oz.
-I would love ANYTHING from my Wist, but the most recent additions are the things that I am completely in love with. http://www.wists.com/kbauer
-I am okay with previously loved items so long as they are in decent shape. 
-I dont like dark colors or jewel tones.
-Also, no crude or dark humor please. My little ones can read and are terribly curious.
*Nook cover: I love this one! http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5343617513/in/photostream/
*Unpaper towels: were going to be painting my kitchen slate blue and white, but I would love a set in a rainbow of colors.
*Cloth menstral pads, 10 long
*Fabric Baskets, various sizes, would love some in scrap fabrics.
*Messenger style diaper bag with lots of pockets, including side pockets for sippy cups. Solid color for the outer fabric (grey or black preferably); inner fabric can be just about anything.  
*Knitting needle roll: would love either one with different compartments for different lengths of needles (including circular needles) or perhaps 1 for circular and 1 for my double pointed needles.
*Crochet hook roll
*Knitting bag (to match my knitting/crochet rolls? ); I like a tote bag style w/ 2 straps & pockets. I love pockets!
*Coupon organizer, I love this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/65578654/super-size-fabric-coupon-organizer
*Patchworky styled wallet (I like a checkbook sized style), theres one in my wists that I just LOVE. Ex: http://www.etsy.com/listing/69565498/handmade-wallet-long-bi-fold-clutch
*Zippered pouches of various sizes; we use these for everything! My daughter loves them for toting her crayons around and I use them for housing my knitting notions.
*Reusable snack & sandwich bags; need a ton of these as I will have 2 in school this year and school lunches are way too expensive and dont have many healthy optionsneed boy and girly ones.
*Matching napkins for the reusable snack & sandwich bags. 
*Water bottle holder w/ long strap so it can be worn across the chest. Would love one for myself and older 2 kiddos.
*HUGE wish: a rainbow twirly patchwork skirt like this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=375262.0
*Reusable shopping bags; I love the kind that mimic the style of a plastic bag and are lined/double sided.

*Tie dye kits or dyes for cotton fabric (extra rubber bands would be awesome too lol)
*Construction paper, various scrapbook paper, card stock- my kids are crazy about crafting too.
*Crayons (prefer Crayola brand as they melt the best but any would be awesome! < we melt the little nubs of leftover crayons into scrap crayons>)
*Scotch tape, packing tape, GLUE STICKS
*Stickersseriously, my children are obsessed with stickers!
*Wool interlock fabric (prefer at least yd cuts)
*Glitter, any color
*Craft/fabric glue

-Homemade soaps, lip balms or candles- my fave scent is black raspberry vanilla or strawberry.
-peppermint tea (would love to try some loose tea, but I need the proper hardware to go with it)

I claim kbauer - for a surprise for her and each kiddo Smiley


:: 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 !
* I have no objection to items from pet friendly homes as long as they're not covered in hair. I love pets, used to have tons of them, so I know a few hairs are required as a gift from the fur baby Smiley
