I've added to my list and clarified my allergies Smiley

Hi! I'm from Tacoma, Washington and I'm turning 26 on the 24th! I'm single and live with my family while I'm taking a sewing certificate course. In addition to crafting I enjoy gardening, watching TV and movies, reading, listening to music and hanging out with friends.

I love anything retro/mod/vintage like fashions (especially 1920-1970) and entertainment (movies, radio and tv shows-especially old spy shows). I also love pumpkins, Halloween, narwhals, lobsters, flamingos, vintage travel, languages, "subtle geekery", Peeps! (but only the chick-like ones)... I have a lot of likes. My favorite colors are orange, darker shades of yellow (love mustard yellow), red, black and white but I like all colors.

In case you need them, my measurements are: bust 41, waist 33, hips 41. I'm 5 foot 3 inches.
Wist: http://www.wists.com/Calabaza
Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/ccalabaza/
My profile has lots of things I like too.

Allergic to: most animal fibers like cat hair and wool, smoke and strong scents. Dogs are fine. If the item is washable and you have pets that would be perfectly ok

Crafts (see my likes above and in my profile, wist, and pinterest for theme ideas) :
-Decorated hair claw clips
-Decorated headbands (I like the hard kind, not the stretchy kind)
-Pendants to slide onto necklace chains
-Full aprons
-Throw pillow cases (10"x10" to 20"x20". I have the pillow forms if you want to send them unfilled)
-Rubber stamps
-Button pins (is the right term? The little buttons that you pin on scarves and bags? Like campaign buttons without the politics?)
-Potholders and/or mitts
-Note cards
-Inchies Thanks, calluna!
-Wall art
-Kits for learning embroidery, x-stitch, scrabble tile jewelry or book binding Thank you, TroubleT!
-A surprise!

Printed fabric
Knit fabric (at least a whole yard)
Different fabric (velvet, tulle, etc.)
Fabric trims
Cool buttons
Ink pads
Rubber stamps Thank you, jcorn!
Cookie cutters
Papers and such for papercrafting Thanks a lot, calluna!
Postcards Thanks so much, calluna!
claw clips for hair
headbands (the hard kind, not the stretchy kind)

Hello all! I happily turn 19 on the 15 of June and currently live in Cali! This will be my first swap and thought it would be fun! I am a very simple gal and basically anything will make me happy and smile in glee. I think the best thing I like about gifts is well the surprise! And unwrapping gifts! I never got over that haha. Anyway I am a huge anime fan and like anything anime! You cant go wrong with me and my favorite animes are Skip Beat (I love Ren Tsuruga), Vampire Knight (I Love Zero), Fruits Basket(I Love Kyo Sohma), and Sorcerer Stabber Orphen (I Love Orphen!) I also love these shows The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Bones, Supernatural, Dexter, True Blood and so on but these are my all time favorites! And well I also love Fall Out Boy (Don't judge) and absolutely adore Patrick Stump as well as Panic! at the Disco! And I love the Clandestine Bat! Anyways I love all colors, neon, pastels, bright and am considered tomboyish. As well that I really like Hannibal Lecter so anything of him is awesome! I love creativity but I sorely lack it and I am at awe at what people are always creating. I really hope to have fun in this swap and I will cherish whatever I am given.(I am a slight hoarder lol).

Hi Everyone! My name is Rebecca and Im turning 18 on the 21st!  I live in England, and Im planning on heading to University in October, to study either Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic studies or Comparative Literature. Im currently taking my A level exams, although that has been hindered by the fact Ive had a terrible back injury since the 2nd April, so I may now be unable to take my exams...
Anyhoo, Im quite a weird person. I have obsessions with everything from Vampires to Toy Story and I love kooky little things. I love steampunk stuff (although I suck at making it) and retro/ vintage things. I have an enormous hat collection... and Im trying to branch into millinery a little bit or at least experiment with it.  Wink
I have no allergies and although I am ok with adult themes, I come from a Christian home and neither my sisters or Mum would be too smitten. My favourite colour is Green and I am a closet Goth. Cheesy
So, on with the list!



  • Beginner kits for using resin or book binding
  • Fabric or trimmings to decorate hats with
  • Nice Charms/ beads
  • Scrabble Tiles
  • Toy Story fabric/ trimmings (quite obscure, I know)
  • Fabric for embroidery, a craft I have just got into but have virtually no supplies for...
  • Wool/ Yarn for Crocheting (especially black, because I am in dire need of some and I cannot get hold of new wool easily)
  • Printable plastic
  • Polymer clay (esp. Blue)
  • Etching kit


  • Crochet books/ Patterns
  • Embroidery pattern
  • Anything else you think I might like!


Thank you so much in advance!! Cheesy

Hi Everyone!

I recently got engaged to my best friend, Michael. I have one dog, Rosco, he is my hearing service dog for the deaf. I also have one little cutie hedgehog. I have a nickname- Sunshine. I like anything related to Sun and the moon. I enjoy reading, scrap journaling, scrapbook, random crafts, new to embroidery, and so-so at crochet. I have Wist and Pinterest- Both links are located in my signature spot.

Wish list-
Whimsies (never had any, would be fun to have)
A hedgehog ani or a dolphin
Dominoes necklace- perhaps a fairy of some kind
Mittens- the fingerless mittens (Any color is fine, gray would be best)
Anything from my Pinterest or Wist.

I also like surprises.

Ring blanks (Hard to find here)
Fabric scraps to try to make a Teeshia Moore bag
Embroidery patterns such as flowers, items, fairy, nothing too boring
Vintage photos, anything for scrap journaling

I enjoy drinking hot tea, any kind is good, except for Earl Grey (Bleech)
I am allergic to microwave popcorn Sad But no general allergies here.

Hope that is enough to help. Can PM me for some more ideas, I may will come up with more later!

Happy Birthday to June craftsters members!

Hey everyone!  My name is Megan.  I turn 24 on the 30th.  I live Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with my wonderful boyfriend/personal cook.  I work for a trucking company, but plan to go to grad school for Library Science soon.  I’m a huge movie junkie.  Most of my free time is spent watching movies and crafting.  Mostly I crochet and cross stitch, but I recently started dabbling in super basic jewelry making and I enjoy playing with felt. 

My favorite colors are purple, blue, and black and white.  I’m not a fan of pastels or pink of any kind, or anything really girly.
I prefer silver jewelry over any other tones.

I’m a huge nerd and enjoy everything from video games and sci-fi, to anything book-related and math.

I prefer wearables over decorations, but I’m up for anything you want to make.

I don’t have any allergies.


-Anything from, or inspired by, my Wist (minus all of the Portal stuff, the bf added that because I was going to join the Portal swap for him, but then again, his birthday was this month too.)

-Anything Firefly/Dr. Horrible/Dollhouse/Whedon anything related.

-Anything Dr. Who related.  I love anything Tardis blue, it’s such a good color.

-Anything Star Wars.

-Dinosaur anything.  I’m like an 8 year old boy when it comes to dinosaurs.  Cutesy over realistic, though.

-A loaded charm bracelet.

-A knit slouch hat.  I crochet, and have a few that I’ve made, but I envy anyone who can knit.

-A super simple circle skirt, preferably in black.  My favorite skirt fell apart recently, and I don’t sew very well.

-An altered tin.  They fascinate me, but I’m not gutsy enough to try one.

-Hand spun yarn.


-Hooplas.  Anything goes.  I really like some of the tree themed ones that I’ve seen.

-A surprise.  Everyone on this site is so talented and creative that I’m willing to leave everything in your hands.


-Buttons!  I love buttons more than I can explain.

-Yarn.  Who doesn’t need yarn?

-Good felt.  I can only find the cheap stuff around here.



-The bf and I both love tea.


-anything fun that you want to send

Thank you so much anylouwho93 for claiming me!!

And thanks jo_mama!!

Hello everyone! I know I'm joining late, but at least I didn't miss the swap completely! My bday was on the 6th and I turned 18.

My name is Amy and I'm going to be a college freshman in the fall at Bowdoin College, Maine. Go Polar Bears!! I live in Issaquah, Washington (just east of Seattle). I love biking, hiking, gardening, and crafting (duh). I spend tons of time outdoors in our GORGEOUS pacific northwest weather Wink My fave movies are Singing in the Rain, the Kite Runners, Labyrinth, Amelie, and The Sound of Music. EDIT: I also adore anything by Hayao Miyazaki, especially Howl's Moving Castle and Princess Mononoke!!!  Fave TV shows: Star Trek (The Next Generation), Big Bang Theory, Bones, Psych. Fave colors: maroon, turquoise, dark green, orange, PURPLE, cream. My style is artsy and classy, not so much cutesy or crazy.

Here's my Wist: http://wists.com/amylouwho93

And my Etsy favorites: http://www.etsy.com/people/Amylouwho93/favorites?ref=si_fav

I would Love, Love, LOVE:

Simple circle skirt with a bicycle or nature theme (I like classy/classic clothes).

A hoopla having to do with any of my fave movies/TV shows OR showing animals (I like deer, whales, GIRAFFES, flamingos, etc.)

Feather earrings, in natural browns, reds, greys, etc.

Rings! I love wire-wrapped rings, old saucer rings, anything in silver...check out my etsy faves for some ideas Smiley

I wear a lot of loooong, pendant style necklaces. My favorite piece of jewelry is a large scarab necklace from H&M.

Any kind of hair accessories (I FAIL at making these, but am so jealous of the craftsters who make beautiful headbands etc.) THANK YOU MEGANCRAFTS!

I love the look of old art prints...I have a couple of these on my Wist and in my Etsy favorites.

Recycled cassette tape wallet!!! THANK YOU MEGANCRAFTS!!!

EDIT: You can never have enough silkscreened t-shirts. I wear a medium to large depending on the brand/style. about 75% of the time I'm a medium.


Natural yarns or hand spun yarn--I'm so jealous of some of the skeins I see on here!

BUTTONS. What more need I say?

Jewelry findings, especially for earrings.

Embroidery thread OR hoops

Feather hair extensions! These don't really count as a craft supply I guess, but they will make me very, very, very happy. I'd like some of the tawny brown colored ones...


I love chai and green teas!

Super dark chocolate = love.

I would love any kind of card Smiley
