I claim jo_mama for some swifter covers and some supplies


About Me: I'm 35, married and live with my husband in South Florida. No kids, no pets, and that's fine with me!  I love coffee, anything with blue stripes, Star Trek and anything related to Chris Pine. I like polka dots and stripes and cute things and Carnival Bloom fabric!! I love the colors pink and blue and pretty much all colors, but I love blue and brown together and pink and brown. Also Pink/green and brown/pink/ green. I am going on vacation in September and I'm trying now to collect things for that.  Fabric luggage tags (my luggage is hot pink!) and tshirts to wear while I'm gone.  I'm going to DragonCon a SciFi convention, so geeky shirts would be awesome. I've switched all of my wists to pinterest because its so much easier and sounds like one of my favorite words ever.

I love Star Trek, Harry Potter, Twilight, Whedonverse... I'm pretty easy to please.

I claim Shablina for a project bag and a surprise!


Hi Everybody!  A little about me  My family and I live in New Hampshire and I am a crafty mother of 3 beautiful munchkins. A 6 y.o. boy, a 4 y.o. girl and an adorable 2y.o. girl. We are New Englanders through and through. I love to ski and snowboard in the winter and in the summer you can usually find us at the lake (when it is not raining and then you can find me in my craft room). New England sports are the greatest. The New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox are my favs!
   I dont really have a favorite color. I like bright and bold for accessories but for decorating prefer beachy colors and reds. However my house isnt decorated in seashells and seahorses. I just like the lightness that these colors bring. All time favorite color combo though is Chocolate brown and aqua. I sew,knit,crochet and papercraft. I do have a wist and a pinterest. The links are in my signature.  I love to learn new things and will always try something once. If you have a craft you do and want to send a learn to kit it would make me squee!  Now on to the important stuff! My wish list!
   If you make something that you think I would love pm me and we will chat!
   We dont have any allergies in our house and  we also love to reuse items so used and in good shape is always good! I will pass on anything that smells like mothballs though.

I'm going to claim jamiek79 for   Tree of life pendant with beads for February, December,  July, and April Birthdays

Claim #2 / 0 sent / 0 received

About Me
34 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. Right now I'm out on months of unpaid medical leave pending a hysterectomy. I found out Memorial Day Weekend after a trip to the ER I was full of literally pounds of tumors. Cry
  • 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!

-- 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!

 Grin --Comfy Lounge Pants/Capris Right now, because I'm on medical leave, I'm wearing a lot of lounge pants around the house. I can use more. I like them soft, comfy and not tight. Lightweight is best for Florida. The simpler the better. I have some wisted here with these my favorite in style. I tend to buy them in a medium to be more roomy. (Measurement specifics on wist description.)

NEW --Greek Goddess Halloween Costume I love this so much. I've wanted one like this for a couple years. It would be awesome to have one sewn to fit me versus generic costume sizes. Would be happy to provide measurements.

NEW --Belle Halloween Costume I would also love to dress up as Belle in her "Provincial Town" blue dress like this. This is a very simple outfit but hard to assemble from ready-made parts. Again, would send any measurements needed!

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

 --Cable Sweater Purse like here. I've seen these made from repurposed sweaters, lined and then turned into a purse. I'm such a big fan of cable knit I really love this style. (Could be a different color, or a different ribbon color; just an inspiration example.

 -- Shower Curtain All the cool fabric ones I see in the store are way overpriced. Maybe someone got a great deal on fabric or something and could make me one. I use a liner so it doesn't have to be waterproof. I have a few examples here specifically shower curtains and some general fabric I like here

-- Flat iron cover I realized it's a pain to take your flat iron with you because you have to wait for it to cool down before you can pack it. So I need a thermal/heat safe cover like these. I have a standard 1" Chi.

 --Sewing Wist Surprise There are tons of sewn things on my wists here as well!

Knitting & Crochet
-- 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.

 -- Knit or Crochet Wist Item - You can find crochet items here and knit items here.

  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 Grin Fitted Style Decorated/Screnprinted/Stenciled/Embroidered 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. Also, embroidery decorated shirts are cool too!! It's getting warm here in Florida - time for some new tees!!

--  Grin 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!!

 --  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.)

 --  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.

 --Something Stained Glass I love stained glass. A little window decoration, a nightlight, a decorative piece - I think stained glass is so pretty. I have some pieces wisted here for inspiration.

 --Hoopla based on my likes (owls, trees, penguins, phoenix, Disney, daffodils, Back to the Future, bats, red foxes, etc., etc.)

 -- Ceramic/Pottery Spoon Rest I have a few examples here but really anything earthy, or blues, or natural type glazes would be wonderful.

 --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.) Let me know if you need a different image!

NEW --Gil The Crab Art/Hoopla We have a Honda Element. And there were these awesomely funny commercials featuring a crab named Gil who wanted to pinch. (Youtube: I pinch!) We laugh about them still. So maybe art, or a hoop or something with Gil saying, "I pinch!" with the Element next to it like the commercial. It would just be really funny. (Our Element is this color if you want to make it match.) You could just screenshot the Element with Gil standing next to it with him saying, "I pinch!" or something. That would be awesome! Cheesy Like THIS EXAMPLE

 -- Daffodils - Spring 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.

 -- Grin Grin 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.

 --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.

 --Embroidery Surprise I have a bunch of assorted items both stitched and embroidered here which can be used as an 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!

Craft Supplies
--  Grin Grin WHITE or NUDE Jewelry Presentation Displays I could 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. (These are examples. If you find something similar at another shop that's perfectly fine!)
 - Grin Torso like this.
 - 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... 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!

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

 --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.

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

 --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.

 --Cricut Sure it's a silly wish but maybe someone has one they don't use anymore? That'd be cool!

 -- 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!

 --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 Grin  -- Metal stamping kit A-Z letters, 0-9 numbers, pre-cut shape tags to stamp, etc. I have a hammer and anvil but need the stamps and things to stamp on! (I've even seen Micheal's carries letters and tag blanks!)

NEW  Grin Grin --Standing Torso Mannequin like this so I could use it as a "model" when photographing my jewelry. I could REALLY use something like this!


 -- 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)
 --  Grin Grin 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'm going to claim PFD for hoopla and will send some candy as an extra treat!

BRB with list

1st claim, 0 in transit, 0 recieved

Hello! Im located in the United States. No allergies for me. Dear hubby has severe sinus issues but as long as things arent super perfumey or smokey then thats fine. Anyways, about me. Im the nerd of the whole family. I dress with my own sense of style. Think Harry Potter scarves, video game shirts, long boho skirts, knee high socks, & lots of tattoos. Im the one at all the family gatherings either crocheting/reading or playing video games. I like anything Harry Potter, iguanas, guinea pigs, tattoos, the old 80s cartoons, reading, 1950s styles, video games, owls, koi, dragons, phoenixs, gryffins, squid & pirates. Colors I like are black, burgundy/gold(Gryffindor colors), purple/black, black/white, red/black/white, argyle & plaid. Craft and theme wise I dont like creepy or adult themed things, the colors orange/yellow or bright & pastel colors. 

-Yarn bowl.  Any color, but a burgundy/black would totally rock my socks!

-lego jack sparrow necklace

-lego harry potter necklace

-lego ron weasley necklace

-Leather bracelet like this, but with a short saying of my choice.

-this fingerless mitts in a smokey grey color.

-Bunny Hop slippers.  Would love them in same color or sky blue or smokey grey.

-this version of ron weasleys knit animal cracker hat.  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/a-practical-animal-cracker-hat

-Giraffe fleece earflap hat:

-personalized fabric labels for me to sew onto my crochet/sewn projects.

-Horse hat like this, prefer brown, with a white mark on front.  Added bonus if you send me the pattern too, so I can make my own!

-pennys hat.  But, would like the actual hat to be longer, so I can pull it down way past my ears (and for shrinkage issues) and the tails a little longer too.  Color wise, black with grey pompoms and grey band.  Cotton yarn only, please.

-I have a pinterest, so a surprize from my 'craft wishes' catagory would be nice.

-lined zipper pouches in a starwars themes. Size wise, big enough for pencils/markers

I claim lindy for a pinterest surprise (probably a hoopla but there's so many cool things on there, I'm not sure yet what I want to make)


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 really really want everything on my wist, but please do not claim me for a wisty surprise.  I would rather you claim for something specific in case there are size/color specifications that you would need to be aware of. Thanks!

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


Anything off the following boards on my Pinterest (loving that Pinterest of mine!):
   *  Hooplas to make me happy
   *  Pincushions I want
   *  Crafty wishes (There are some outlandish things on that board as well as many that would      qualify as medium.  It's just where I keep all my crafty wishes so ignore the big ones)
   *  Bags, wallets, totes, and pouches

If you are inspired by any other board to make something for me, please run the idea by me first.  I am trying hard to stay involved in Craftster swaps while at the same time not bringing anything into my home that I don't truly truly want.  I watched my first episode of Hoarders recently and it scared me half to death    Shocked

A purse made from the buttercup pattern.  There is an example of the one my daughter has (I got it in one of my first swaps) and she loves it so much that she has pretty much worn it out.  I would love one in a navy blue, but it would be fun to have red as well.

A 1" wide black leather cuff with snap closure.  If you decide to make this for me, I'll get you an exact wrist measurement.

handmade blank note cards in any of these themes:  bees, bugs, crayons, cute cats, cute mushrooms, colorful polka dots and/or stripes.  I am a loyal user of snail mail, so I can never have enough of these.

Anything Arsenal themed... really, anything! (scarf, pillow, duffle, standing grocery bag, valance for single window, visor, reusable snack bags or lunch bag, bookmarks, etched glasses....)

Anything Atlanta Silverbacks  (see above for ideas)

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, bed, or crinkle sack  in one of these themes:  Arsenal (huge wish!), skulls, old school
Star Wars (especially Darth Vader)

solid black scoodie in fleece with hood part lined in something silky so my hair won't get crazy.  I would want silky inside solid 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)  My  daughter has gained a tad around the middle so if you
choose this an elastic waist would be ideal, and that would probably make it simpler for you anyway... win,win!  If you choose this, I can get you measurements.

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

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 be ceramic or maybe poly clay?  If the sock monkey were blue, it would be even better.

A sock monkey.  I'm about to rush right over and put some on my Crafty wishes board.  My daughter has quite a collection but we would love more.

Wire earrings in swirls, knots, flowers.  I like silver but not the super shiny stuff.  Examples of earrings I like are on my wist.  I'm not allergic to any metals, I actually used to wear thumbtacks in my ears in middle school      Tongue

A "Bride" ball cap, visor, scarf, make-up bag, sunglass case, etc... in off white with deep purple or bright pink accents.  Very girly bride so bling, bows, pearls, lace.... are fine.

Cat toys filled with your homegrown and dried catnip.  My cats don't seem to love the store bought stuff but every time we get toys with homegrown in them, they fight over them.

If you choose something off my wist, please pm me first and let's discuss it.  I still want most everything on there but most of it is there for gifts.  I would want to make sure the size/color/? was right for the intended giftee.  Thanks!


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)

buttons (esp. greens)
stabilizer for embroidery projects

yo-yo maker (I've been making them on my own for years, but I'm lazier than I used to be)
fine lined pens and markers in assorted colors (the ones that are best for working in an art journal?)

Bunny Suicide anything
cat toys/treats
gluten free treats ( people treats, not cat     Wink)

i claim a2k for some wisty art and her decorated clothespins!

second claim this round!  2/0/0

i'm always adding new stuff to my list!

my name is jo and i am from a small town outside of st. louis, mo.  my husband and i recently bought our first home, and i am thrilled to finally decorate the way renters just cannot.  we have 2 awesome kiddos - a 7-year-old girl and a 13-month-old boy.

i love bright colors, but the aqua/red/purple/golden yellow bright instead of primary crayola bright.  i'd say that aqua is likely my favorite - it's all over the house.  i do not like darker shades much, aside from black, so no burgundies or hunter greens.  if you want a reference for the color palette i most enjoy, look here: http://pinterest.com/pin/57768998/

my style is a bit all over the place - it's shabby chic meets modern country?  i am a recovering hoarder (just kidding, mostly), so i don't allow myself many knick-knacks.  if it hangs on a wall, awesome - otherwise it must serve a purpose or be extremely sentimental.  i am eternally drawn to peacocks, catholic insignia, sugar skulls, bunnies, filigree, and zebra stripes, just to give you an idea.  if you see something on my list that you'd like to make, but it's bigger than a med, let's talk personal swap!

some stalker-friendly places to get a peek of me:
*my website, which is full of stuff i make and a bit of my family: www.josasser.com (there's a swap entry on there that might give you some info)
*i put a lot of effort into my pins and their captions, so they are more organized.  anything from there, especially any of the "i want . . . " boards: http://pinterest.com/josasser/
*my wists are not so detailed, but good for ideas: http://wists.com/josasser

anything from the "i want" sections on my pinterest are fair game as long as they don't say "CLAIMED!!!"

and my wishes . . . (***'s indicate big wishes!)


- throw pillows or throw pillow cases for standard sizes.  seeking fun, playful, and sometimes playfully elegant pillows for my home.  i have a few examples in my pins.
- pretty potholders.  i'd love some quilted potholders, especially like the ones on here:http://pinterest.com/josasser/i-want-for-my-home/ .  open to other potholder ideas, though - tired of my ugly black ones!  reds/aquas/lime greens for my kitchen, please?
***- a new purse.  it must be big, able to hang on my shoulder or across my shoulder, have 3-4 small pockets inside, and be baddazz.  if it has an exterior cellphone pocket, awesome.  i have several pinned for examples
- a new apron.  i need a full apron, maybe even "extra full" since i am a queen-sized gal.  i don't need anything super fancy, but if it could be in one or more of my kitchen colors (red/lime/aqua) that would be awesome.  i have a couple that i love in my pins.
- blue jean slippers ala luckdragon Smiley http://pinterest.com/pin/93515028/ size 9.5
*** - a toddler walking leash (no, i am not one of those parents, but my son is one of those kids) there are a couple examples here: http://pinterest.com/josasser/i-want-it-for-the-kiddos/
- for my daughter - clothes for her build-a-bear fox named "foxy".  if foxy and georgia could match in some way, all the better (she's an 8 )
- cloth diapers.  my son is 21lb, wearing 12-18 mo, so either a sized diaper that will fit him or a OS.  a pocket dipe or AIO would be stellar (we just are not huge fans of fitteds and covers), and if there happened to be ninja/robot/monster/animals cuteness all the better!  anything but sports.
- small wetbags, big enough to fit my cellphone, my checkbook, etc into.  i could use at least 3.  take a look around my pins to get an idea for my style as far as fabrics go.
- a scrappy coil bowl, colorful
*** - a bolero for my daughter, to go with her first communion dress.  the dress is white classic eyelet fabric, so a short sleeved eyelet bolero would be awesome.  i can provide pics of the dress.  she will be a size 8-10 when she wears it.
- superhero capes ( http://pinterest.com/pin/74641169/ ) for 3 kiddos for christmas.  ask for specifics
- cloth pads http://pinterest.com/pin/104284177/
- unpaper towels or cloth napkins in whites/red/aqua/lime green

- a crochet "bender" hat for a christmas gift for a friend.  specifics here: http://pinterest.com/pin/103248831/
- hooplas!  my hoopla wall is in my kitchen, so they need to work within a red/lime green/aqua color scheme and be 8" hoops.  i know 8" hoops are not the most common, so i am ok with 10" hoops if that's all you have.  you can do anything you want to the hoopla - cross stitch, embroider, felt, paint it, bead it, quilt it - whatever!  themes i would love to have: bunnies, sugar skulls, peacocks/peacock feathers, coo-coo clocks, ninjas, cupcakes, the cheshire cat, dandilions, sacred hearts (and other catholic insignia), anything from or inspired by these:http://pinterest.com/josasser/i-want-hoopla-loves/ .  take a look around my pinterest boards and there might be something else you can hoopla out
- a few reusable swiffer max covers - see my pins
- a purple lap-sized afghan
- a crochet or knit shrug for me.  long or short sleeve are fine, but i want it looser.  bright color, purple, orange, whatever.  i have an example in my pins - http://pinterest.com/pin/98476029/
- dead fish hats for my kiddos http://pinterest.com/pin/98092504/

(other random art/crafts)
- creative family portraits.  i know this is a weird one, but this is a huge wish of mine.  i know there are some wildly creative persons out there, and if anyone feels comfortable doing something like this i'll love you forever.  take a look here to see examples of what i am looking for: http://pinterest.com/josasser/i-want-family-portraits/
- wind chimes.  i am more concerned with the sound than the look, although colorful is awesome:)  we're looking for low, soothing sounds.  dongs, not dings.  used/recycled is fine
- high quality and colorful (bright colors) ATCs in any 2D or very slight 3D media you master, in any of the following themes: peacocks/peacock feathers, 7 deadly sins, cheshire cat (doesn't need to be the disney one), birdies, sugar skulls, catholic insignia (sacred hearts, our lady of guadalupe, etc), bunnies, dandelions,   demetri martin comedy, e.e.cummings' 'i carry your heart', edger allen poe's 'the raven', the wee free men, zebra stripes, buddha, lotus flowers, anything inspired by my pins.  please note that i intend to mat and frame these, so anything too 3D or interactive is not going to work Wink
*** - felted soaps. (*US SWAPPERS ONLY* apparently)  my bathroom is aqua, steely blue, lavender, dark purple, fern greens, taupes, creamy whites - so felt in any of those colors would work.  i like scents like lilac (the flower, not the perfumy stuff), honeysuckle, milk, white tea, fresh linen, etc.  light, airy scents, nothing too powerful.
*** - super wish - a wooden growth chart kinda like the ones i have in here: http://pinterest.com/josasser/i-want-for-my-home/ .  i want one that hangs and i can turn around.  the back can either have some of your art (this will be hanging in my red/lime/aqua kitchen, so the name "Sasser" would be cool) or blank so i can do my own.
- a super cool, colorful, happy yarn wreath.
- an address sign type thing for our new house, maybe something like this: http://pinterest.com/pin/54954338/  or like this: http://pinterest.com/pin/57479928/
- ceramic bowls, cups, platters - there's a couple in my pins.  i love pieces that are plain or even a little off.  my dream is to one day have an entire mismatched setting of hand made ceramics.  i love the look of salt firing, and if the glaze is neutral shades with a hint of red or aqua or lime green - you've made my week!
- anyone make incense burners?  hubby needs a new one!  he's a plain guy, so something black and simple, maybe with a bit of buddha incorporated?
*** - stamped flattened spoon garden markers that say "grow dammit!" for my mom for birthday/christmas - http://pinterest.com/pin/69616367/
- garden stepping stones or other classy lawn ornaments for my mom for birthday/christmas
*** - a lawn washers game for my husband for our anniversary (november)- http://pinterest.com/pin/103292863/
- jewelry sets (necklace/earrings) for my mom for birthday/christmas.  she likes understated pieces that can go with lots of outfits.  necklaces should be closer to the neck (18 inches or so) and earrings can dangle but only a little.  earrings must be lightweight.  gold and silver are both okay.  i'd like to give her something with a little pizzazz, but still be "her", like this but in different colors: http://pinterest.com/pin/104506967/
- anything fox for the boy, or anything squirrel for the girl, or anything you see here:http://pinterest.com/josasser/i-want-it-for-the-kiddos/
- a jacob's ladder for my god-son for christmas/birthday.  http://pinterest.com/pin/74643399/
- 3d origami stars in sleely blues/aqua/lavender/plum/taupe/silver/white
- a surprise?  i'm game for a surprise.


- recycled sari silk yarn
- wooden shapes (flowers, butterflies, bugs, hearts, whatever!)
*** - used crayola crayons - nubs and bits welcome!
*** - a cut up tree branch, at least 3" across.  this is what i want to do with it: http://pinterest.com/pin/79151581/
- 3 solid yards of sheer ivory fabric
- thick or chunky yarns, especially wool that is dyed or undyed
- dyed or undyed felting wool
- old game boards/pieces, whimsies
- large buttons, 1.5"+
- old, ornate or wooden picture frames, most any size
- alphabet stickers, or rub-ons
- acrylic paint and brushes
- wooden candlesticks, bowls, plagues, etc that i can sand down and paint
*** - a wood-burning tool
- 8" embroidery hoops, especially wooden ones or any red/lime/aqua ones
- embroidery floss (i never seem to have enough white!)
- a board book suitable for altering

I claim Jo_Mama for ATCs and a surprise Smiley

Third claim, 0 sent, 0 received

My name is Stef, I'm 25, from NSW Australia. I currently live with my parents, 1 Golden Retriever named Buddy, 2 domestic cats Blade & Bella and 1 cockatiel Takeshi. I spend a fair amount of time at my boyfriend Steve's house and am a part-time step mother to his 3 year old daughter Accacia.
I am studying a certificate III in Fashion Design by correspondence, and am not employed. I am on disability benefits at the moment, while I attempt to get my condition, Fibromyalgia, under control.

I love most colours except for dirty yellow, fluro colours and some browns. I love animal print, argyle and prints that have multiple colours. I also like celtic crosses, sarcasm, geeky stuff, and natural prints.

I am really allergic to dust mites and also get bad sinus pain from
perfumes, deoderant and smoke. Any clothes made for me need to be made in natural fibres and MUST be soft and non-irritating. I tend to avoid most wools as they tend to irritate me. Also, I am sensitive to washing powders/soaps/detergents so if you need to wash anything, please ensure it is a natural or planet friendly product.
My favourite scents are strawberry, vanilla, lavender, mint, chocolate, frangipani/daffodils.

I have an extensive Pinterest http://pinterest.com/mod35tbabe with several boards filled with ideas.

Would love to receive = red text

Wishes for Me:
Travel pillow - the tute linked is more for a child but I'd like the adult version http://mayamade.blogspot.com/2009/06/childs-travel-pillow-tutorial.html
Pattern Weights
Hand warming gloves
Laptop sleeve

I have a few pieces of clothing listed in my pinterest, also I love Amigurumi

Headache Relief pots
Ribbon Dispenser box
Something similar would be great
ATC album or similar - I'd love something to store ATCs in as I have only just started receiving them
A container for my daily pills, I take quite a few and some don't fit into the Monday-Sunday pill box I have
A glow in the dark clock
Cool hoodie like this
Shadow box

ANYTHING with the following themes:
Big Bang Theory or IT Crowd
Old Hollywood glamour (eg Audrey Hepburn)
Tim Burton

Learn to stencil kit with Freezer paper - I can't find it in Aus so it'd be cool to get some - maybe with some hints as to how to use it Smiley
Unique buttons or "whimsies" jar
Scrapbooking materials and tools -
inks and stamps would be really useful
Card stock
Card making tools
Punch needle patterns
Punch needle accessories

Toddler Slippers
Preferably made out of polar fleece. Please disregard the measurements listed in the tute as I need to check the shoe size. Accacia is a fairly petite 3 year old - her foot length is 6.5inches. If foot width is needed let me know.
Rapunzel or Dora themed pillow case or wall art etc - am also open to suggestions for this

A remote control caddy for the lounge suite
Large mug skull or pirate themed
Wall art themed with skulls, pirates or BMX - must be BMX, not moto cross

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.
