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 78.

~~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 before making a claim, 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 with in 24 hours!! It is up to you to make sure you do this DO NOT PM THE ORGS FOR THIS INFO! You must get and keep safe until you ship!

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. If a  stall in the thread the orgs can claim again to get this moving again !

***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***

~~You must send Del. Comf with in the USA. NO exceptions within the USA!
~~If sending overseas as it takes so long we are changing the rule for INTERNATIONAL packages ONLY as soon as you ship AND SEND A PHOTO COPY /PIC of the shipping receipt ( or the tracking number from the receipt) you can claim again ONLY AFTER I HAVE THIS RECEIPT HOWEVER!!! You can send it to me in a message OR if cant get in that way you can EMAIL IT TO : [email protected]

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 not the next day 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 and that is what you claimed for we know things happen and some have to be changed but must be OK by the person claimed and on their list or wished in their Pinterest/wist )

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!!!

Last claim of Round 78 is RLYNN

Here is her list:

My name is Robin.  I live in Portland, OR (U.S.) and I am a full time PhD student.  I am also the mother of preschooler extraordinaire, Aria Jae.   I love handmade and I love surrounding my child with handmade. My pinterest is full of stuff I'd love so feel free to surprise me with something off one of my boards. http://pinterest.com/rlynn/

If you decide to craft for me: my favorite colors are blue and green.  I love earthy and jewel tones.   I wear a lot of black and sometimes a bit of grey and every once in a while something red, but mostly I wear black.  I like the look of steampunk and Gibbous jewelry and clothing.

If you decide to craft for Aria: her favorite colors are the rainbow, bright and cheery, but she leans more towards blue.  She loves pirates, robots, monsters, rainbows, and elephants.  She also loves anatomy; her favorite Christmas gift was a model of a human body complete with squishy organs.  We dont really do princess stuff around here but we do like fairies, sprites, and gnomes.  I have loads of things I would love for her pinned on my pinterest, including clothing, toys, and accessories. The only request I have is please no stuffies unless they are super teeny tiny or something I have pinned...she has so many so we are trying to slow it down on how many new stuffies find a home here. Big WISHES in bold.

For Aria

- tees, tunics, pants, or dresses for Aria (4T)
here are a few links to some things i really like but you don't have to make these exact things...I'm including it for inspiration about the types of clothing and fabric/color choices I like.  there are more examples in my pinterest.
more clothing ideas

-Pantaloons (4T)

-altered hoodie (5T) - thanks, redstar13!

-appliqued, stenciled, embellished tees, etc... for Aria (4T)

-Batman tee (you know with simple bat symbol) (4T)

-Spiderman tee (with simple spider symbol) (4T)

-Godzilla tee (4T)

-Wall art (her room is mostly blue and green, but we've been adding loads of rainbow fun)

-Teeny tiny crocheted animals (she has piggies already)

-Something elephant; Aria loves them (anything but please no stuffies unless it teeny and tiny)

-hair accessories - Aria recently got a pixie hair cut, she needs small clippies like the kind made for baby hair...but check out my accessories board for her on Pinterest, there are other ideas there.  Cheesy

-Some sort of cozy for her LeapPad Explorer w/touchscreen, maybe with some sort of strap or handle for carrying and pockets w/zipper or Velcro to store her extra games (PM for measurements)

-felt stuffed organs for the AWESOME body toy that klg_jlg made Aria.  Its a torso and is about the size of a 4 year old.  It needs a brain, maybe some bones...PM for measurements.  Aria loves this toy and she would be ecstatic to get some more internal body parts for it!  I'll have pictures of it up tonight if you want to see what it looks like.  Cheesy
- thanks klg_jlg

For me

-Jewelry for me (please check out my pinterest for ideas; Im pretty particular about my jewelry.  It doesnt have to be an exact replica but my pinterest will give you a feel for my tastes)

-acorn jewelry, beads or felted, I like either style - thanks Atsuko!

-Fold over yoga band skirts for me (PM for measurements) Here's a tutorial

-Circle skirt for me.  Here's a tutorial

-bags with sturdy handles as I would like to use them to haul my school stuff to and from campus
Bags I like posted here

-wool dryer balls

-Fun Magnets (Prefer super strong magnets on back please like the rare earth kind)

-Handmade buttons (wood, poly clay, resin, dyed, etc...)

-Laptop cozy (PM for measurements)

-Hoop art or any wall art, inspiration can be found on my art board

-Hair pretties (I think I have some on my pinterest accessories board but again I like steampunk and gibbous inspired things, usually prefer the simple V-clips/hair snaps)

-woodland creature and the forest themed whimsy jar

-Reusable "Paper" Towels (Don't really care what material/color/pattern as long as its absorbent, can be the snappie roll up kind or just loose ones)

-Jewelry wall organizer (I have some pinned on my pinterest probably under my Home board, but I need it to store necklaces and some earrings; extra coolness points if it has a way to stash cuffs and bracelets)

-no slip dish towels like this or this

-scrappy placemats...I like these a lot.  they do not have to match and one at a time as a claim is fine.

-Door Draft Buster like this

-Cami Lace Bands

For Aria's Fourth Birthday Party
Besides Aria's first birthday party, her traditional Korean dol, I have not made a very big deal out of her birthdays.  Aria really likes the Care Bears, but I don't really want to do a cartoon themed party.  Instead, I'd like to throw her a spectacular birthday full of rainbows, hearts, and stars (all things she associates with Care-a-lot).  Her birthday is not until the end of March, but knowing me I'll be neck deep in school work and grading papers so I could use all the help I can get.  Cheesy  Everything on this list is a big WISH.

-something like this cake topper but with short brown hair and brown eyes and maybe a rainbow heart balloon instead of a kite?

-scrappy ribbon garland...I need five of them now(red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple) about 9 feet each.  These can of course be done in separate claims. Kartiana added scrap fabric and other fibers...it looked great; feel free to do the same.  Cheesy

More to be added as I come up with more ideas; also feel free to check out my pinterest; the board titled party ideas is chock full of rainbow delight.  Cheesy

Craft Supplies

-Any of the craft books from my pinterest

-Thread for my sewing machine (all colors, please only gutermann or coats and clark)

-zippers (bright and fun colors, any and all lengths)

-zippers (with SILVER teeth, can't seem to find them, maybe at least 7 inches

-Serger cones for my serger (need 3 please; all colors but red or blue)

-Old ornate frames (can be old and need a new paint job, no glass necessary)

-45mm or 18mm olfa blades for my rotary cutter

-watercolor paper

-Gallery style canvas (the kind that is stretched over a wood frame; any size)

-iron on interfacing (mid-heavy)

-muslin (nothing smaller than 1 yard)

-lace appliques (smaller ones are better, nothing bigger than 3 inches)

-Oliver + S clothing patterns (4T; boy or girl)

-black and white ruffle fabric (2 pieces, one at least 1 yard, the other at least 2 yards)

-wool sweaters that somebody accidentally washed and shrunk

-any patterns from my pattern love board

-any fabric from my fabric love board - fat quarters would even be delightful

-TEA (I prefer black tea, chai tea, vanilla tea...anything really but the fruity kind)
-Aria loves gold coinsfeel free to add to her loot.  Cheesy
-My partner, Phil, is hard to craft for but his stomach is always a good bet.  He loves bacon (but that might not travel well), chocolate, gummy bears, and pretty much any delish candy. 

Thanks much!! Cheesy

Well, Shoot me now I just waited and I guess people are sleeping and I cant wait I wanted to claim yesterday but did not ....

 I am claim Rlynn for a Godzilla tee . a fun fabric Elephant shirt too for fun, I will make some cute dyno socks for her and Atlanta too and a cuff for Aria ( cant get the fabric for towles but ordered and will take a week or so will claim again ( I need ot get off my rump and make me some so it will kill 2 birds you know Smiley  
I will attempt some cool poly clay buttons I have a truckload of this stuff might as well use it huh and a special somethign else not sure what yet...


I am Monica I live in the USA at the last bank of the Outer banks in North Carolina. I am a total beach girl who just is so damn happy 2011 is OVER!! I look for great things in 2012 that is for sure! I just got military orders to Cape Cod mass so I am going to FREEZE that is for sure!! Burrr ladies make me and Atlanta warm LOL
   I love handcrafted items dont we all or we would not be here right??

Lest see. I dont have green ( like Kelly green) in the house as Houston my grandson is Autistic and it is one of the triggers for him. Weird huh but whatever that is him

I am also raising my beautiful Granddaughter who turned 7 on the 11th of Jan and My grandson is 3.5 and super cute little bundle of energy!!! ( just learned her in the past few weeks for reason out of our control but fo rhte safety to keep his nasty father from taking him he must stay in NC so I have to send him to his mommy but that is OK they get along GREAT and she can deal with 1 and school but 2 and all that goes with an active 7 year old it is sad but they dont get along at all Cry

I like more clean lines then messy that is for sure. I love all things in my pintrest and make comments as to style and color etc. I am pretty easy to please and again love most all things that show up on my door step. I don't not wish for anything other then the Wicked shirt OR a sock monkey/ crochet dolls from the wizard of oz board however....

We cant have ANYTHING made by an indoor smoker. If outdoor please you must wash hands before touching any craft items as my granddaughter is HIGHLY allergic to the sticky tar stuff that sticks to hands and clothing of smokers

Please be cautious of colors especially with Houston being Autistic

I am a girly girl..My ex-son inlaw calls me Barbie shops a lot..( I have a name for him too but not cute like that LOL) I love Pink, I have a beautiful motorcycle she is so yummy Pink and black , I cant wait to get my knee fixed so I can get back on a surfboard, I love the sea and beach, Pirates and whimsical, I am not tom boy at all really. I am a jeans and tee girl or my polos but really just laid back in my PJ pants in the house Smiley I am a grab the bull by the horn girl and not really ever too stressed. I would say a glass full over empty I adore my dogs and my husband of 17 years FEB 11

I love pink ( light over hot), seafoam green, teal, blues, red, navy,yellow  I just don't ware black really or any manly stuff. Hate Crew neck tees like hanes style reg tees I don't ware ever...I have to say think sz L not that JR size tiny large just a 12-14 woman Smiley I dont mind Kmart or Walmart tees I am so easy on clothing it is foolish I can and do keep everything for years.

If you want to know if I need something or really want something ask....

I am good with almost anything off my Pintrest . We are so excited for the move however heartbroken too as Houston will not be coming to Cape cod with us Cry I have raised him from 7 months now he is going to live with mom in April so really almost tay clear of his boards as his mom wants to do her own thing for him and his room ....but she is crafty so she will do fine!!

I claim atsuko for a bunch of plain shrinky dink buttons for Lana to decorate.


Hi my name is Chris.  Im 35 and I live in Alaska with my husband, 2 dogs, and cat.  I love the outdoors and spend a lot of time outside hiking, fishing, skiing, kayaking, etc.  I love to bring the outdoors inside with nature themed art and colors.  I love greens, browns, fall colors in reds, orange, dark yellows.  Favorite animals are otters, foxes, and all kinds of birds.  I also like sea crittersnot so much fish but seahorses, jellyfish, squid, crabs, seaweed.  Im not allergic to anything but really hate the smell of cigarette smoke.

I have a pretty extensive Wist and Pinterest.  Ive been switching over to Pinterest but everything on my wist is still stuff I like/want.  Id love anything from it or inspired by something on it.  Pinterest is the most up to date and has lots of categories including a supplies wish list and a craft swap wish list as well as pages with material, stuffies, hoppla, and themes I like.  If you do pick something off my Wist or Pinterest please do read the comments I'll occasionally put something up and then say "Love this style but don't like that color" or some such.

Crafty items

- A linen handbag.  Something like this one .

- A sewing pin cushion that fits on a sewing machine like this one .

- A knitting project bag.  I love the small one I received in this swap but now would like a bit larger one as well.  Examples of one I like are on my Pinterest Swap Wish List

- Baby items.  My sister is expecting this summer and I would love to share the craftster love with her new little one.  Its her 1st so she needs pretty much everythingburb cloths, changing pad, diapers, bibs, cute onsies, toys, etc.  She prefers natural materialsorganic where possible.  If you have an idea of something she might like or have something you make Im open to suggestions and can give you more ideas of what she might like via PM. 

- Sea creature stuffies.  Would love anything with tentacles, weird or unusual fish (puffer fish, anglerfish, etc), nautilus, crab, sea slugs (nudibrach), seahorses, corals, jellyfish, etc.  I love all the ones Ive received so far but I always have room for more!

- Coral reef tote bag. Love these bagspatterns are available as a free download. 

Knitting or Crochet

-Slipper/boots that are over the ankle.  There are several styles I like on my things to knit pinterest board.  In any dark color womens shoe size 8.5.

- Warm socks for my hubby.  Mens size 11.  Any color is fine.

- Crochet covered rocks .  Would love a collection of these to put out in a glass bowl.


-BIG WISH- Embroidered woodland animal patches.  I want to make a patchwork baby quilt, something like this or this only I want the center squares to be embroidered with woodland animals.  Background colors will be sage greens, tans, and browns.  Each square needs to be 4x4 inches (please leave a little extra fabric so I have room to stitch it) pick any animal and style you like.   

- Dish towels.  I dont really have a color scheme in the kitchen but like greens, blues, browns or red and blacks.  Embroidered, sewn with cute material, appliqu, stencil/stampedopen to any.  I like cute designs with kitchen themes (appliances, food, herbs, etc.) or any animal or nature theme.  I would especially love some linen or flour sack type ones.

- A tentacle pillow like this one .  Similar colors or could add some rust/dark orange along with the greens and browns. 

- Hooplas or other wall art.  Lots of examples of styles I like on my Pinterest.
 Print/stencil clothing

-  Print/stencil t- shirts womens size 1X (or XXL in misses) preferred colors: brown and tans, rust, dark orange, greens (lime, apple, sage), grey, black.  Bird or animal designs, trees, leaves, etc.  Also love geek/science themes such as molecules, cells, etc. See Wists/Pinterest for some examples.  I prefer v- necks or scoop neck. Long or short sleeve is fine.

-Stencil lounge pants size misses XXL or womens 1Xsame themes as t-shirts above in black, brown, tan or grays. 


- Felted acorns.  Like these these in a variety of natural colors.  I like the hoops so they could be hung as ornaments.    Thanks atsuko

- Soap. I prefer the cold press or natural base melt and pour types.  I like natural scents, most fruit smells (citrus, pear, berry), vanilla, rosemary, lavender, green tea, oatmealjust nothing with too heavy a perfume smell. 

- Garden markers from spoons.  Something similar to these .  Could be veggies or herbs or a mix. 

-  Wall art I love lots of the animal and botanical prints on vintageprintable.com site.  Would LOVE, LOVE some type of altered paper art using these.  Links to the ones I like best on my pinterest wall art board.
