I claim phoenixfiredesigns for a pair of comfy lounge pants!  Cheesy


I'm Christina, I live in the Netherlands with my sweet game addicted & philosopher husband, 2 year old son and our cat. I'm a French teacher, I love learning foreign languages (currently learning Japanese), travelling, discovering nature, indoor gardening (outdoor too, but I don't have a garden yet...) and crafting. In fact I have more interests than time..
We don't have any allergies but we are vegetarian.

Themes & colours I love: nature, recycled/reusable/frugal items, hippie, animals, herbs, dark green, natural colours and materials, black, summer colours, retro colours/themes, yoga, '60s and '70's movies (especially Hammer movies), Dr. Who, and there are many more things I like in my profile!

Dislikes: pink, white, pastels, Disney, artificial , nothing too girly please.

Big wishes are in green

I claim IdlersDesign for a DIY teach-me-to-knit-socks kit and a tape measure with inches.  Smiley


My name is Karrie and I live in Canada.  I'm a WAHM of 2; a 6 yr old DD and a 3yr old DS.  My work is handmade wedding stationery, so I get to craft every day  But you know it's become work when you're picking up hobbies on the side; in the last 2 years I've done a lot more knitting and sewing than ever before.  Hubby and I are both allergic to cats.  The kids probably are too, but we've never tested the theory.


 - Tree of life pendant with autumn colors for fall...    - thanks phoenixfire!!
 - Nest pendant with 2 eggs - August & December colors...  (Or 1 pink and 1 blue works for me too) - thanks phoenixfire!! I know you said and/or, but I'll cross them both out just in case; I can always add one back in later!!

 - any kid friendly Halloween decorations for around the house (cute as opposed to scary)

 - re-usable sandwich bags; preferably 4 with 2 boy themed ones and 2 girl themed ones.

 - fun headbands for my daughter, or a DIY kit so she can craft her own

 - stenciled tees; anything that Sheldon would wear in Big Bang Theory would be awesome!  Ladies' FITTED Size L.

 - embroidered tees; for myself, my son or my daughter - we'd all love one!  you can PM me for ideas.  I'm ladies' fitted size L, my daughter is size 6, my son is size 4.

 - hand painted shoes for my kids would be so cool!  My daughter would love some like these.  So would my son, for that matter (without the bow, and change the heart to a bug or something...)

 - I would love this hat!!

 - an organizer like this would be very handy


 - any of these craft books would rock!!

 - any nice, fine yarn in pink, turquoise, soft green, pale yellow, or light brown/beige.  Would be looking for 6-8 balls.  Something that knits with a small needle (i.e. around 3mm) is perfect!  Selection around here really stinks; I can't find anything small enough!!

 - DIY charm bracelet kit including twisted cable chain, charms and beads

 - any vintage dress pattern from 50's, 60's or 70's - preferably in Ladies' Size 10-12, and sizes 8-10!!

 - old shaker knit sweaters in white, women's size L, regular neckline - I have a recon project for these!!

 - a learn to sculpt kit for polymer clay.  I'm in awe of the people who can make pretty much anything, and I'd love to give it a try.

 - glass beads for fridge magnets like these - I can't find them locally...

 - This yarn is stunning.  I just love it!

 - any of these fabrics would be wonderful

Thanks so much for claiming me!!

I claim whats_her_name for a couple of the craft books from her list!


My name is Karen and I live in Austin, TX with my teenaged dd (who typically ends up with most of my swap items), a huge, goofy lab-mix and a lovely, prissy cat.

I love designs from the 60's and early 70s (think mod & flower power). Also 50's post-modern. 50's/60's SURF THEMES!  I used to have a 1974 VW Thing and I miss it a lot! I also love Asian designs in fabric and artwork.
I prefer clean lines and bold graphics rather than cutesy or fussy prints.

I was born in the year of the Dragon and I just love them! And English Bulldogs (cute, not fierce).  I love anything magical/wonderous including fairies and Alice in Wonderland. 
Also, pretty much any Amy Butler fabric.

If you are doing a t-shirt, please not a men's or hanes or jerzees. For me, a ladies fitted med (if runing small or junior sizing, go for a large, but generally med will work) (prefer scoop neck).  For DD, juniors fitted med (size 3/5). Thanks!

Other random things I love: silver jewelry, reading, travel, art, geekery, the periodic table, Scooby-Doo, GLEE!, nature, trees, dandelions, rain, cooking, whimsical things (but not whimsies), steampunk!. For more info check my wist .

I would love anything from my wist : www.wists.com/luckdragon or pinterest:  http://pinterest.com/luckdragon/ but especially the things below.  In general, I prefer practical things that can be used (with the exception of small wall art or hoops for
my hoopla wall).  My favorite colors are bolder/earthy tones to 60s mod.  Blues/greens/tangerine/black/white/deep red (again, examples in my wist).  Please no neon colors or pastels, or pink.

REALLY would love anything in highlighted below in  PURPLE

Thank you in advance for picking me!!

I claim scarlet_nights for a package of supplies a few wiccan goodies and some candy


This is my first claim this round.

Hi I am Edel and I live in Ireland, I am 44 and live with my daughter who is 16 going on 28, I am a college professor in engineering but really would prefer to sit at home all day and craft. I love to craft, I sew, make jewellery, paint, altered art, stencil and am currently learning bookbinding, I mostly like functional things. I am a packrat and so there is a lot of clutter in my house if something is functional and beautiful then its a winner. Bedlinen, storage, hoodies,t-shirts etc

No allergies, Live in IRELAND


I have recently lost 23lbs yay me! So while I have some awesome t-shirts, I could do with some sexy, figure hugging ones, I am about a size L now (14-16UK)
anything with Dios de los Muertos, 50s, gothic, vintage hearts, nothing too cutesy..I am currently loving all the tentacle, owl type stuff on craftster..(more on my profile). or Pj's, or hoodies.

stocking filler type things suitable for an almost 18 year old, (she is musical theatre obsessed, Grease, Cats, little shop of horrors, chicago, le cage au folle..all faves of hers)

wall art, (love good black and white photography)

Embellished jersey lounge pants.

Jewellery, earrings and necklaces in particular. I love silver, turquoise, red, orange, colours. I dont like gold.

Pillow cases/duvet covers painted, stenciled, embellished in some way

Altered art journals like these

Shrines, especially on the theme of womanhood, love, relationships, masculinity

Cute and functional storage type things, I love anything that is kitchy and decorative as well as being functional.

Big Wishes

not a crafted item, but if you have a pair of old pink flamingos hanging out in your garden, I would LOOOVE them!

Hand knit socks, in a soft yarn. I have big feet, I think about a 9US, but I need to check.


Patchwork equipment, especially square rulers, 6 and 9 and 12 inch square for use with a rotary cutter,

jelly rolls (love them, cant get them here)

printed cottons, some examples of the styles I like are on my wists. I just cannot get any interesting printed cottons in ireland,

these are some of the designers and type prints I loveanything similar to this would be great.

Irving Street Flannel by Erin McMorris
Bliss Flannel by Valori Wells
Meadowsweet 2 by Sandi Henderson
Alexander Henry, Kaffe fasset, amy butler

Wonder cut ruler for patchworkor any of those rulers that have internal cutting slots.

Fat-quarters, squares etcfeel free to destash!!

Sterling silver jewellery findings,

Glass beads,

metal beads/charms

Stamps and stamp pads, embellishments for altered art,


Any supplies related to paper crafting, sewing or jewellery, patchwork magazines related to these crafts,

 Craft books (ditto my moan on not being able to get many of them here) used/thrifted is fine, Just nothing to do with yarn..I dont have the patience.

thrifted hula dolls from hawaii...(i love certain kinds of kitch!)

Day of the dead themed items.

Popcorn jellybelly jelly beans, actually any flavour.

My daughter loves mike and ike's beans

i claim edelC for a t-shirt!

this is my 4th claim this round 1/2/1

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.

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 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 )
- 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 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

- apples cozies - http://pinterest.com/pin/62444888/ - i could use several in whatever colors you want - they make great impromptu teacher gifts!
- 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 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)
- i am starting an "altered" alphabet magnet collection for the fridge (ala http://pinterest.com/pin/151668747/ ) so i would love some crafty alphabet magnets.  keep them colorful and generally kid friendly, and they need to have enough magnet power to hold a paper or 2
- 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/
*** - 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.
- 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!
- 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/
- 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/
- a surprise?  i'm game for a surprise.


- felt, any color
- 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!)
- fun ribbons (rainbow, zebra stripes, sparkly, etc)
- origami paper (wrapping paper cut into squares works fine Smiley )
- this masonite house album or something similar :http://alphastamps.com/Collage_Supplies-Blank_Books/Boxes/c4_59/p10189/Masonite_House_Album/product_info.html
- paint clips/cards, especially bright colors
- fabric scraps, especially fleece, old clothing bits ok too!

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!

I would like to claim Errka for a cake mix and a SURPRISE!!! Wink

This is my 4th claim. 0 in transit, 2 received.

Hello! My name's Diana and I'm from southern California. Im 24 years old, I live with my husband of almost 3 years, my chihuahua mixed dog Georgie and my rat terrier dog Sophie. I'm a part time domestic goddess, but a full time art geek. My favorite color scheme is pink-black-white. My favorite colors in order are pink, red, seafoam green, electric blue, and red-violet. I love polka dots, circles, argyle, and plaid. I also currently have an obsession with zebra stripes. I also love leopard print but in unnatural colors (I really dont like the orangey yellow and black spot).

Allergy note: I have a wool sensitivity, mostly around sensitive areas like my neck and my forehead. I have extremely sensitive skin, so no soaps or lotions with a lot of chemicals/artificial ingredients. Hypoallergenic, home made, or organic skin products only.

My favorite scents are Vanilla, Strawberry, and Citrus.

Hope you don't mind me claiming you again, DV!! You're just super fun to craft for!! I'm going to claim DesignVigilante for something chainmaille. Grin

Claim #5 overall / 1 sent / 3 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. Surgery should be sometime in September 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 kimono 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 I will need more of these after surgery!! I like them soft, comfy and not tight. Lightweight is best for Florida. The simpler the better. I have some wisted here 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. I could really use this!! Mine has no cover now at all!

 -- 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

NEW -- A bag/tote/purse sewn by jamiek79! Wink There are a bunch of inspiration bags HERE on my wist.

 --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!)

NEW --Penny's Santa Hat I know it's not the holidays yet but I'd love one for the upcoming season! Another pattern here too.

 -- A cable knit bag. I really like cable knit and I think this bag is really cool.

 NEW -- GORGOUS Knit Shrug. I love cables. I'm sure this is massively huge, but I love it so much I'm putting it on the list anyway. LOL

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

Embellished Clothing (Dyed, Embroidered, Screenprinted, etc.)
-- 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!!

--  Grin Grin Batik/Dyed/Ombre/ "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.)

 --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!

 --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 -- Witch Ruby Slippers like this. These are too cool. I wear a 6.5 and would prefer a shorter heel more like 2" or so but these are just totally awesome.

Glass, Ceramics, Pottery, Etc.
--  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.)

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

 --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.

 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??

 --  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. Recently added new Phoenix inspired items!

NEW -- Bat Halloween Decorations I love both the hanging bat and the bat garland here! Bats are a favorite and Halloween is the one time I can find bat items!

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.

 --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!

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
