Hello Smiley

My name's Alison, and I'm back to my roots in Oregon (aka I was born here but lived in WA all my life but now I'm living in Oregon because I go to college in Portland). I'll be 19 on September 25th. I'm pretty easy to please, and I'd love to receive just about anything. The only thing I ask is that if you smoke, please don't smoke around the crafty goods and if you go for a smoke break, please wash your hands before returning to craft. I have a bit of an allergy to stuff in certain tobacco products, and the smell makes me feel kinda sick.

I love red, blue, green, purple, teal, rainbows, etc. I'm not a huge fan of pink, but some pinks can be okay.


Crafted items I'd like:

Fleece hat with kitty ears Thank you Gawd! Cheesy
Tiny top hat <3
Leg warmers
Knitted fishnets like http://pinterest.com/pin/18912615/ (Borrowed the link from hgddm)
Steampunk goodies. I'd especially love arm warmers, a hat, or goodies like these: http://image2.etsy.com/il_430xN.22502234.jpg , http://www.steampunkjewelry.ffxoh.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Green-Steampunk-Scarab-Necklace1.jpg , http://www.polymertutorials.com/images/tutorial-steampunk-heart.jpg , http://cache.wists.com/thumbnails/d/81/d81fbb1a4040920954959be47e18ae25-med (Big wish!) , http://morporc.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/3473606079_1deee5fbe4.jpg , http://www.etsy.com/listing/72194979/darkwear-brown-unisex-steampunk-double?ref=sr_gallery_18&ga_search_query=steampunk+bag&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade
Arm warmers Smiley
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle goodies (I have a Raphael hat)
Gypsy ANYTHING. Cheesy Thank you mandykaye! I'm just gonna put this here cuz you said gypsy and/or belly dancer stuffs and so I don't really know which to cross off. I'm so excited! ^_^
Belly dancer stuffs <3
McLintock amigurumi (McLintock is an old movie, John Wayne played G.W. McLintock in it <3 )
I would really really REALLY love a Madea shirt. Especially if it also had a Madea saying.
Knitted goodies
Anything related to The Godfather (Part 1 preferably) ((Yes, the amazing old gangster movie))
Cthulhu related goods.
Nifty bleached shirts
Hair accessories
Tree of life pendant
Warm fall/winter clothing. Portland gets cold quickly! I promise I'm tiny! D:
Big wish: Rainbow circular skirt!
Fingerless gloves/mits, would especially love them to have those little Russian nesting dolls on them Cheesy If they have actual mitten bits that hook on, that's very okay too! That will be useful.
Wall art in gypsy themes or Pagan themes or Tarot inspired. I have a woodburned hamsa and a woodburned piece based off a tarot card with my name on it and a pentacle. I have some tarot cards from the tarot swap that fit the gypsy theme, and they're on the wall. I'd really love a gypsy caravan.
Halloween pretties and goodies for decorating for October <3
Yoga mat
Stuff for Yule. I have a Yule stocking, but I wouldn't mind adding a Yule boot.
Things with the evil eye on it
One of those cute hats that has an animal face on it and has the super long ear thingies or paw thingies (Depending on the animal) that double as gloves. Cheesy http://s9.thisnext.com/media/largest_dimension/941BB847.jpg I'd like a bear like the brown one in the picture, a panda, a pink and black bunny (This is one of those items that is an exception to the minimal pink rule as long as there's a lot of black too. I have a lot of black clothing, and this would look reaaaaally cute with it!!!), and/or a fox Cheesy Oh! and/or a red panda!! <3 <3 <3

Supplies I'd like:
Niobium wire
Titanium wire
Round nose pliers
Jump rings
Toggle clasps
Necklace clasps

Foreign candies, especially Japanese
Probably an odd thing to add, but if you found a Hookah at like a thrift shop or something, I would love it. I don't smoke, but I reaaaaaally want a hookah for a decoration piece. (My bedroom has a something of a gypsy theme to it, and I'm kind of heading for that middle east look a bit as well. A hookah for this would be nifty!) Wait... Is it even okay for me to add this on here? o_O If it's not I'll take it off!
Tazo tea, especially Tazo chai tea. ((I am desperately in love with Tazo chai tea lattes haha))
Anything you'd want to add.

Hiya fellow September babies!
I'm Laura and on the 27th I will be 21! Woohoo!!! I live in San Diego with my dad and am currently going to school for Art History and English. I'm not really sure what to include in this list, but I'm gonna give it a shot!

Two of my favorite things are Art and Doctor Who. Audrey Hepburn is my favorite actress and Breakfast at Tiffany's is my favorite movie. I adore Zombies and love girly, flower prints. My favorite city is Paris, which I hope to visit again someday soon.
Honestly, any of these themes would be amazing!

Crafted things:
-Anything inspired by the themes above
-Jayne hat (from Firefly)
-Netbook case
-Slouch hat (blue or green) Thank you TroubleT!!!
-A journal (preferably one like River's from Doctor Who)

-Messenger bed
-Infinite Scarf
-Dream Catcher
-A medium sized yarn bag
-K-9 pillow pet (Again, from Doctor Who)
-Doctor Who nesting dolls
-Art inspired by any of the themes

-I don't really have any specific wants here, but if you have anything you don't want/need anymore, I'm sure I can figure out something to do with it :-)

Candies-I really like Twix, Reeses, Goobers, Butterfingers, Dark Chocolate
but I really love
TEA! (Especially Tazo, any flavor, but Green Tea Zen is my fav)
-Pressed Pennies
-Sour Gummy Worms (so yummy!)
-Any thing else you think would be cool, like area-specific items or random funny little things

Thank you so much for considering me!!!

Hi, I'm Chris(crafty gurll) and will be turning 36 at the end of the month.  Wish it was 26, but whatever.   Wink  I recently opened by own 100% handmade store so have not had too much time to myself, let alone for swapping!  I have a husband, son and 2 dogs that I absolutely adore.  Making pottery and fusing glass are my crafts of choice, but I dabble in embroidery, sewing, mosaics, jewelry...the list goes on.  Can't wait to make some claims, I have been reading over everyone's lists while waiting for approval.   So Happy Birthday everyone and thanks TroubleT for organizing.  Cheesy

Crafted Wants:
1.  Cold/hot process soap(I do MP sometimes.)Any scent, I'm not too picky.  I just love handmade soaps so much!

2.  Wristlet purse, small, around 8 x 6, zippered.  Love funky fabrics!

3.  Anything sugar skull related, my bathroom is Mexican Kitsch!  Thanks hgddm!

4.  Bracelets/Cuffs(7 inch wrist)  

5.  Cool potholders for the kitchen(I had skull ones but my puppy chewed them up.)

6.  Funky hand towels for the bathroom(grey and burgundy are main colors.)

7.  Tree/bird related wall art.

8.  Any kind of birthday suprise.   Cheesy

I have ideas for everything on my wists(wists.com/craftygurl) or my pinterest(think it's under my full name, Christin Dillon Sorensen.)


1.  E6000.  Love it, use it daily.   Cheesy

2.  Any kind of tile for mosaics.

3.  Chunky handmade yarn would be amazing!

4.  Scrapbook paper.  I don't scrapbook but I use it to make glass tile/domino pendants.

5.  Jewelry findings...ring blanks, jump rings and clasps especially.  Thinner chain is always wonderful too.

6.  Wooden embroidery hoops(nothing fancy, I like to embroider hoops or just do groupings of funky fabric inside.)

Can't really think of any extras.  I am trying not to eat too much candy, and I'm not a coffee drinker.

So, there's my list.  Thanks for reading and have a great birthday month!   Cheesy

Hello everyone. Cheesy
My name's Robyn and I'm turing 20 (nooooo...) on September 23rd. I'm currently living in the High Desert in California, otheriwse known as "that place you stop at on your way to Las Vegas". I'm here getting my first two years of college done and I will be finished by next month! Woooo, too bad I have absolutely NO major I've decided on...
I am a lover of all things creepy and cute, black cats, fashion design, and things that smell good.
I love Fall, it reminds me of pumpkin scented things and Halloween. I'm super excited that my birthday is on the first day of Fall again this year. And Skeletons! I have skeletons stuffed into every nook and cranny in my room but there's always a spot for more. <3
My favorite color is black, and I also love gray, dark blue and plum (is that a color?). I don't care for any real bright colors.

Crafty Items

- Skeletons. Skeletons skeletons skeletons. I love them. Skeleton themed anything!
- Anything Halloween related, specifically jack-o-laterns, ghost, and black cats. Cheesy
- Amigurami. Suprise me?
- Anything with polka dots!  
- Spiffy mugs, even if they're just for decoration. I want a Frankenstien one, hehe.
- A scarf of some sort. I just have a strip of fabric I use as one since they only have plain ones at the stores and I am a poor knitter. Thank you TroubleT! Cheesy
- Homemade candles, or perfumes. <3 (I'm not a huge fan of vanilla).
- Something to put my tea bags in. They're scattered in all sorts of boxes and bags in the pantry. :C
- I love those fake potion bottles, or...witch suplies? http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/21800000/potions-magical-things-21855280-800-600.jpg
- An altered or homemade journal.
- Skelton hand gloves.
- A sewing machine cover. (Husqvvarna Viking, Desinger 1)
- Umm, a surprise! Thanks again TroubleT.  Grin

Craft Supplies
- Fabric! (Halloween themed would be nice.)

- Teeeea!
- Hot apple cider mix, or hot chocolate.
- Candy, but chocolate is a bad idea since it's melting even inside my house.
- Non-homemade candles and other smelly good things.
- Anything you'd like to add.

Thank you for considering me, and happy birthday everyone! :3
