Details of swap:

You must be cleared and have feedback on the December 2011 swap (unless your claim was international) in order to sign up for the February 2012 round.  

If you are late in the January swap, please do not sign up until you send.  You will not be accepted.  

Please do not post in the thread until you have been approved by the organizer. This thread is for lists only.  The discussion/gallery thread is located here. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=403101.0 Post as soon as possible after signing up so we know you have found the thread and that you are getting updates.

How this swap works.

This is a pinterest swap, meaning that your fellow craftsters will claim you for something you have pinned on your pinterest site.  If you don't have a pinterest but are interested, go here www.pinterest.com to request one or PM one of the organizers your email address to request an invite.

1 - This swap is NOT chain style.  You may choose from anyone's list once they are posted.  However, when possible it is nice to claim from those who haven't been claimed or who have claimed more times than they have been claimed.

2 - This swap is for either one medium or 2-3 small items for each claim.  A medium item is one that takes 2 or more hours, $10 - $30, some examples are a single necklace or bracelet or a scarf.  A small item is one that takes 2 or less hours, $10 or less, some examples are earrings/wallets/pouches/bookmarks.

3 - Once you have been approved, you may post in the list thread.  Your post should look like this:
         - your location and a brief bio (include allergies in red please)
         - your Pinterest link
         - list of boards that are to be used for this swap, or simply say something like "all my boards are game"
         - whether you are okay with supply claims

4 - If the person you want to claim is okay with crafty supply claims, you may send supplies.  HOWEVER, they must be the particular supply the person has pinned.  You are not allowed to claim someone for random fabric just because they happen to have some fabric pinned.  If you have something that you think the person would love but they don't have it pinned, please PM that person BEFORE claiming to make sure it is something they would like to have.  

5- You may have up to 2 claims outstanding at a time unless you are FOC, then you may have up to 3 outstanding claims at a time.  The organizers may claim more for purposes of ensuring a fun swapping experience for everyone. 

6 - If you are flaked on, you will only receive an angel for as many packages as you have sent.  If you were claimed for 3 packages and you sent 2 packages and one package was flaked on - you will not receive a swap angel.

7 - When you wish to choose someone, please send a PM to the Organizer and the Receiver.  At that point, please request the address from the receiver.

8 - Everyone must make at least ONE claim per month.

9 - Required: good communication; Please be sure to include the organizer in all claims, sent, received PMs: PM to choose someone; PM the DC# or receipt; PM when you receive as well as posting a 'Thank You' in the gallery (even if you can't take photos).  Please put "Pinterest Swap" in the subject line of all PMs.  At the minimum, please tell us if it is a send or receive, the senders username, receivers username and the item.  Otherwise we may be a tad crazy trying to figure it out.

10 - It is your responsibility to make notes in your bio/link post as well as on pinterest about color/size/material preferences, when an item has been received if you do not desire duplicates, and any other preferences.  Also, the larger the variety of craftable items pinned, the larger the the odds of being claimed.

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.  

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.  I just started teaching a college course this term and would love some great jewelry to dress up my work outfits.

If you decide to craft for Aria: her favorite colors are blue and green as well, but she is seriously into rainbows so anything with all the colors would be loved.  She is into pirates, robots, monsters, rainbows, elephants, and dinosaurs.  She also loves the care bears (80s style, before CGI got to them), the 70s animated TV show Godzilla, Ponyo, Batman, Spiderman, the Hulk (as in the green guy), and lately Dinosaur Train. We dont really do princess stuff around here but we do like fairies, sprites, and gnomes.  Her newest thing is anatomy.  Seriously.  She loves learning about the body.  I have loads of things I would love for her pinned on my pinterest, including clothing, toys, and accessories.

Her Birthday is at the end of March and I've promised her an epic rainbow birthday party, if you claim something from my party ideas board, I will give you the biggest cyber hug ever!  If you have an amazing rainbow party decoration idea that you'd like to make feel free to PM me...I am game for just about anything.  But I seriously have to pull this birthday party off with as much as she has been talking about it lately.  

With the exception of the board titled, "stuff I should make and gift," all other boards are free game.  Exact replicas are not necessary so please feel free to get creative and have fun...  

I am totally fine with a supply claim.  Good boards to look if you want to send me supplies...the boards titled "fabric love," "supply love," "pattern love," and "craft books."  I always love fabric, but please PM me before sending fabric not pinned on my fabric love board.  Fun colored buttons in various sizes and of various materials but mostly of the round variety are always welcome...

Hi! My name is Tina and I live in Vancouver Washington with my husband and two wonderful daughters (16 and 20. Now, really, when did that happen?). I am in a PhD program that is stressing me out - these next three months are going to be brutal, so both playing on Pinterest and crafting are welcome distractions although I don't have nearly as much time as I would like to do them!

I like fall colors, turquoise, dark rust, green, forest colors... but I also like bright rainbow colors. Okay, I guess that I pretty much like all colors, but am less excited by Easter pastels and neons, although they have their place. I generally do not like camouflage patterns. 

My style leans towards bohemian / gypsy / hippie / natural. I am absolutely fine with you upcycling and using recycled materials in your crafts for me. I would prefer that the materials that are used do not come from animals (no real fur, and only recycled leather, please).

I am a plus-sized woman, so if you are thinking of anything that needs a size (even things like bracelets, short necklaces, etc) please pm me. In fact, if you have any questions about my list or likes, feel free to pm me! 

All of my boards are fair game for inspiration, except for "Wedding Photography Research" (my daughter had been hired to do a wedding photo shoot and we were collaborating on ideas). I don't need exact duplicates, so please feel free to use your wonderful creativity!

I am also fine with a supply claim - I have a "craft supplies that I want" board, as well as a "craft books" board. I generally do not need the exact supplies that I have posted - similar is fine, as is gently used. I would love to get a supply of old keys if anyone has any!

Hey guys, I am Lindy and I live in Arizona with my boyfriend, two kids, dogs and cats.  We just bought our first home in June and I have been having all kinds of fun decorating!

My honey doesn't "get" crafted items so don't worry about him  Wink  My kids are Adia (11) and Landon (7 on the 19th) who have their own board and would love anything from it. http://pinterest.com/lindyv321/for-my-kidlets/

I love just about all colors (except yellow and orange) but am finding myself really drawn to turquoise/aquamarine/teal type shades lately.  I would love to do my craft room in pink/mauve teal and grey.  As for clothing I tend to wear A LOT of black and a lot of cardigans. I like to use bright accessories for a pop of color.  I love turtles, tattoos, skulls, Harry Potter, books, scarves, hats, hair clips, make-up, jewelry, and crafting.

All of my boards are up for grabs except the I made that one since well, I made that stuff!  please feel free to check out the ideas board as who knows if I will ever get around to actually making any of that awesome stuff!  I am also totally cool with supply packages.  I have a supply and fabric board.  Also I have a book board that has some crafty books I would enjoy!


Thanks for claiming me!

Hello.  I am Melissa.  From northeastern Pennsylvania and I live with my 2 kids (daughter, Kaitlyn - 16 and son, Ethan - 10). 

My favorite color is Pink.  But love most colors except neons, for the most part.

Feel free to be inspired from any of my boards except, hairstyles, saying and photography.  They really are just for me.  lol  I will gladly accept supplies, but have nothing yet in that board.  But I hope to soon. 


Thank so much for claiming me.   Feel free to PM me with ANY questions at all.

Hi! My name is Tiv, and I am living in New Zealand! I am a baking student (well, I will be in two weeks!)
I have a real eclectic style, I love almost all colours and patterns and everything! It is pretty hard not to impress me!
I like art to hang on my walls, clothing or accessories to wear or functional things I can use!
Boards to use: paper crafts, embroidery, clothing, jewellery. And of course, my big wants board, if anyone claims me for something from that I LOVE YOU! craft ideas and my new room for inspiration, but they are both a pretty huge mess!
Feel free to take inspiration from my pins, nothing needs to be an exact copy!

Hi everyone. I live in a sleepy little town in Iowa. It is very cold here, so I don't get out much (plus, there is no where to go). I spend most of my time crafting. I knit, crochet and carve stamps. I love sewn items, but can't sew. I live with my boyfriend (of 7 years) and our small dog (Sissy, who is afraid of everything). My favorite color is pink. I also love bright colors and pastels. I am not a big fan of dark colors and earth tones. I love "cutesie" patterns, like hearts, flowers, butterflies, cupcakes, ect. I also like paisley. My tastes are similar to a 6 year old girl's   Grin I don't have any allergies.

All my boards are fair game except "Christmas Gifts" and "Things I've Made". My pins are just for inspiration. I don't expect the exact item. Usually I like what function the item serves and don't care how it is made (ie. I might pin a side loading case for my laptop, but really any case would be wonderful).

I have no problems with supplies claims. It is very hard to get supplies here. Those can be loosely biased too (ie a different but similar type of yarn, though yarn isn't a good example since I like all yarn  Cheesy).

Here is my link:

Hello hello!  I'm Jessica, and I live in NYC with my boyfriend + 3 cats!  I love pinterest but I'm actually pretty pick with my repins...

I love pink + grey, black + blue, mostly dark or somber colors.  I love artwork and I have a whole wall for hoops, but not many hoops (hint hint).  I love musicals and reading and rainy days.

My pinterest is: http://pinterest.com/yumjello01/
I've amassed enough claims now to split up my boards, please see "Crafty Wishes" by category...

My craft ideas board is a combination of techniques I want to try, and things I THINK I can pull off but unless it says "gift idea" or is about Christmas wrapping (which half of it is) feel free to do it for me!  Funny things is a source of inspiration for possible hoops or art or anything you might put words on - "Things I Like" is my general board, I would love anything made based on anything on that board.  And now I have a supply board!

Looking for book page paper flowers for my sister's wedding!  Will do personal swaps/swaps for supplies (available listed here) Thanks!

It's my first pintrest swap! Yay!

My name is Michelle and I live in Ottawa. I just moved here so I am in desperate need for almost everything! I am finishing up my BSc in Environmental Science. Soon, I'll be job hunting!

I like red, black, gray, and white colors for my house and decorations. I don't like trinket type things.  For clothing I like turquoise, teal, red, greens, and pinks.

My style leans towards mod, vintage, and unique. My pinterest should be a pretty good judge of what I like! If you have any questions about my list or likes, feel free to pm me!

All of my boards are fair game for inspiration, except for crafts and sewing, as they are things that I hop to make myself. Things don't need to be exact duplicates, so please feel free to use your wonderful creativity! I am also fine with a supply claim, if you have any fabric or cardstock that you think I would like please pst me.

Happy swapping!


I do personal swaps! Especially for ATCs and items off of my wist & pinterest:

I'm Aida and I'm from the Philippines. I'm an engineering graduate. I love geeky things, musicals, books. I also appreciate humor tending to the nerdy programming side because of my course. My favorite colors are the from the pure shades to darker shades of greens and blues and mixes of those two colors. I'm not a huge fan of the overly bright shades like

All my boards are fair game for crafting or inspiration, except for the stuff I've made, received from swaps ones (but they do show a lot about me), keep in mind (just stuff I want to keep track of) and places I want to go to and cute/funny board (just there for the fun). You don't have to craft exact copies of my pins, inspired by them is fine. You can mix and match as you want from my pins. I'm still adding more pins, slowly but surely!

And I'd love supplies, if you want to make a supply claim, I've got a supply board. I would absolutely love you if you send me stuff to make leather cuffs like snaps and snap setters, mini buckles, and leather. I've been totally fixating on them lately.

I'm traveling to Singapore for a week with some girlfriends mid-March and I would love to be claimed for anything travel-related like a travel organizer, journal, or purse.

Hi! Im Ash from Ontario, Canada. Im a full time Masters student but continue to work as a footwear designer which I have been doing for almost 6 years now. I also do costume design in any other spare time I have. My life consists of discovering and creating things every waking moment and that is a happy place for me to be!  I live with my sweetheart who appreciates but is not craftily inclined..yet Wink

I love vintage clothing, also more punk/alt stuff. Bounce between androgynous and feminine. I had reduction surgery a year and a half ago so Im still getting used to my drastically different body! I cosplay (wear costumes out in public for non-halloween events) a lot and also attend fetish events.

Colors I like: black, saffron, mint green, greys. Reds and purples, generally bright colors except yellow. Love anything tentacles, foxes, dinosaurs, things related to such geekery as adventure time, venture bros, studio ghibli, harry potter, doctor who, monster high. In general love fairytales, fables and horror.

I am 57 but pretty small size wise. If unsure, medium is usually a safe bet because I'm comfortable wearing things a bit baggier right now. If you want any measurements at all, just PM me and I can give them to you!

For my boards, stick to WANT!, To make wishlist, and Cosplay. In regards to the Cosplay folder, these are costumes on my bucket list that I do not currently have any supplies or pieces for so if you see a prop or something you are interesting in making, let me know! Unless its cosplay related, I dont need duplicates of what Ive posted. If you feel inspired by a pin, use your imagination! I dont have a supply claim board so I wont be doing that right now.

And the fun stuff. Ive got a lot of allergies! Smoke, perfumes and synthetic scents, cats, gerbils, certain plants, moulds, certain metals if they will be rubbing on my skin (Im okay with sterling silver or gold). Food allergies to derivatives of corn, wheat, dairy, mustard family, grapeseed oil, anything fermented. Dont let that scare you off please! Any concerns please PM me.

Hello! My name is Cady and I live in Portland, Oregon with my husband and our 4-year-old son Max. I'm a full time student and stay at home mom.

I love purple, dragons, geeky stuff, and earrings. You will notice a complete absence of clothing for me - let's keep it that way. Max loves trains and animals the best.

Please, nothing scented, and try to keep projects away from smoke and furry pets.

My Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/saintcady/

The board Swap potential (http://pinterest.com/saintcady/swap-potential) is probably the most direct board, but feel free to just take inspiration from some of the others (like the Quotes & Signs board, or Geek Joy, or Kid Stuff). I do have a board of craft supplies I covet as well (http://pinterest.com/saintcady/craft-supplies/). Probably steer away from the Projects I've Done board. Items I've already received or that I'm expecting from someone else are noted in the comments or have been moved to the received board. I'm happy to answer any questions! Thank you in advance! <3

Hi Smiley I'm Melissa and I live in metro Atlanta, GA with my fiance and our chihuahua Rupert. I'm a graphic designer professionally and he's a techy nerd (both professionally and in his spare time). We're both into beer (making and drinking), crocheting (he taught himself recently!), vintage cars, Thai food, recycling and good music. We're getting married this fall, hooray!

Things I love: anything vintage (jewelry, photos, cars, fabrics, owls, porcelain state plates, etc), handspun yarn, knee-length cotton skirts, cabled knitting, embroidery hooplas, things for my dog, wall art, slouchy knit/crochet hats, homemade soap, gardening (container only for now), windchimes, garden gnomes, totebags, cooking/baking, beer-related things (we love craft and dark beers), anything Martha Stewart!

Colors I love: teal / aqua, deep brown, mustard yellow, orange, red, charcoal gray, pink, green (lime, grass, avocado), deep purple.

Supplies I could use: always in need of jewelry supplies (glass beads, vintage charms, metal chains in all varieties -- a "bead soup" or "jar of whimsies" is always a welcome treat!), yarn ("odd ball" amounts are fine too), embroidery floss, wooden embroidery hoops, mason jars, fabric fat quarters or any size really, small brown buttons.

Things I dislike: "fun fur" yarn, country or patriotic items, religious themes, camoflauge, cigarette smoke, hunter green, burgundy, neon and pastel colors, anything '80s-looking.

Here is the Pinterest board I've made for inspiration: http://pinterest.com/marut/crafter-swaps-things-i-would-like-to-have/

Hey everyone! I've Jessie. I live in Roswell, NM. Please no lame jokes. Thanks!

I am a SAHM to a 5 year old boy, 2 year old girl, and a little girl who is about -5 weeks. They all love to get stuff in swaps as much as I do.

No allergies. I do have a cat and a dog, though unless you're making something for them I guess it doesn't matter too much, does it?

Not really any major dislikes. I like to think I'm pretty eclectic.

As for the whole pinterest thing: All of my boards are open except the "If I wore jewelry" board because I really don't wear jewelry, though I'm OK if you use that board for inspiration. I prefer function to form. I would really rather get something that is inspired by something on my boards rather than an exact duplicate. I'm pretty sure that's how it goes but I thought I would add that in. Supplies are cool, but I am kind of trying to destash a little so I can make room for this new kid so keep that in mind. "Supplies" off of my "Books" board would be super.

Colors and tastes: I wear a lot of blue, but like purples. Relaxing they are. I already mentioned I'm pretty eclectic elsewhere. Russ is all boy and LOVES orange. Alice is a girly tom-boy. And my husband is straight up nerd. I think that's all there is to us.

Hi Everyone,

I'm super excited to join this swap! I am still adding to my Pinterest, but hope there's a few inspiring things on there. I certainly don't need replicas. In fact, pretty much any color will do. My favorite colors are green, blue, teal, purple (in moderation), brown and neutrals. For my kids, I love brightly colored things.

I have a five-year-old boy and a 18-month-old girl. We are one of those uber-liberal vegetarian Jewish feminist households. Oddly enough, I work for the military, so work stuff needs to be on the conservative side. I love nerdy, geeky things. I don't like violent things (e.g., skulls) or toys that look sad.

These days I'm obsessed with finding interesting or re-decorated clothes for the kids. My poor little boy is so jealous of all the amazing girl clothes the toddler keeps getting. Boy clothes are *very* boring.

We don't have any allergies. Please check out the board labeled "Swap wishes" and "Swap supplies."

Thank you for crafting for us! http://pinterest.com/juliekinn/

Hello! My name is Kassie and Im a (almost) 22 year old wife to my best friend & high school sweetheart, Jake, as well as mommy to little Natalia who turned 1 on New Years Eve. =) My family and I live in Idaho and since winter has begun Im ready for all sorts of indoor crafty goodness to begin. Since weve been married we have only been renting homes so I havent yet settled onto specific design ideas or colors for different rooms. Ultimately, I would like my house to have a light and airy feeling that comes from white and greys with minimal color accents.
Im a very visual person so I keep a lot of ideas on my Pinterest. Generally if I pin it, I would like it to be pretty similar to the thumbnail. =)

Please PM me about styles/colors when claiming as I'm trying to basically redocorate my entire home to fit this vision I have in my head.

Does anybody know how to make mens rings?? My hubby lost his wedding ring this summer on the lake and we still haven't replaced it. Our birthday is Feb, 21 so I'd LOVE to be able to surprise him with one either VDay or BDay! I would even send you a thank you gift!


I have a LOT on my Pinterest, I think 45 different boards or something.. You can use any boards for inspiration but the main boards to craft from would be "Make This For US, "Crafty Little One", "Hoopla", "Art & Decor", "Super Mommy", "Sewing", "DIY & Crafty Stuff" and jewelry.

Obviously not the Stuff I've Made one, however if you see something on there you'd like for yourself, just PM me and I might be able to whip it up for you as a claim or part of one =)

Hi, all!  I'm Deanna and I live in sunny Arizona, too! (waves at lindyv321  Cheesy)

I've got 4 kids, but one's all grown up and doesn't live with us anymore.  I have a too-beautiful daughter (17), handsome teenage son (15),  a sweet little guy (5), a hunky hubby, and a cute dog.

If you choose to craft for me, my favorite colors are... well, probably all of them.  I can't think of one I don't like!  I do seem to wear a lot of black, though (it's slimming  Grin). And I like bling.  A LOT.  I'm beginning to get a thing for steampunk style stuff, particularly jewelry.  I'm a huge fan of Warehouse 13, Haven, Merlin...ok, let's just say the SyFy channel!  I also love historical-type stuff; in other words, anything old.  Or that looks like it could be old.  Not vintage, so much (the 50's and 60's do hold a few charms for me, but I'm talking 1920's and older-type stuff, especially Victorian).  I'm also a wanna-be archaeologist (since even BEFORE Indiana Jones!!), so ancient civilization/artifact stuff is huge for me.  Anything gently used is totally fine.

I don't have too much stuff on pinterest for my kids, as I'm encouraging them to start their own boards.  My daughter Megan is a typical teenager, and you will find her mentioned in some of my pins.  She loves jewelry, Twilight, Batman, giraffes, photography, funky socks, and her boyfriend Joe.  She's not much of a reader, but she loves movies, especially scary ones (we only let her watch the PG-13 ones unless we've already seen it and cleared it, so if you're crafting in that direction, you might want to check with me).

Tyler, my teenage son, loves anything musical- he plays trumpet, guitar and drums in varying degrees of proficiency.  He loves superheroes, especially Superman, Batman and Green Lantern.  He plays Magic the Gathering with his dad, and likes fantasy art.  He's a big fan of black & white photography and technology.  He reads a lot of teen fantasy, such as Harry Potter, Erec Rex, Percy Jackson, Vampirates and Fablehaven.  (And in spite of everything I just said about him, miracle of miracles, he isn't geeky in the SLIGHTEST!)

Our little guy, the Toad, is very easy to please.  If it involves a dinosaur, dragon, pirate, Transformer (especially Bumblebee) or superhero (especially Iron Man, Superman, Spiderman, or Batman) he'll love it!  He also likes snakes, bugs, and frogs.  Yes, this child is AAAAALL boy!  Favorite tv shows (other than the above) include Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Dora, Diego, Little Einsteins, Word Girl, Wild Kratts, and SpongeBob.

My boards are all pretty much fair game, and I'm pinning new stuff DAILY, so if there's nothing there today that looks good to you, try again tomorrow  Wink).  Exact replicas are not necessary; please be creative and use my pins as inspiration, if that works better for you!  Just please no gory stuff, nudity or vulgar language.  

The upholstery fabric board is there because I'm hoping to reupholster my living room furniture and hubby & I sometimes struggle to find styles we can agree on.  We have VERY different tastes in decor, which can be a challenge sometimes.  The other, more obvious exceptions would be "my craftiness", "for me", "bizarre", and the food boards.

Craft supplies are always welcome!  I do have a pinboard for things I particularly want, but I'm not picky!  I'll try anything crafty.

We don't have any allergies that would apply to crafting, but would prefer items from a non-smoking home.  If you're an outside smoker that's ok.

If you have questions about anything you'd like to make, please don't hesitate to pm me.

I'm Linsey and I live in California, not too far away from L.A. (but not too close either  ). I'm 25, a PhD student in English, and I teach high school kids as well. No pets for me but I do love pets of all kinds, especially BEAGLES!! My favorite craft is jewelry and I also sew, embroider, cross-stitch, paper craft, paint some, build stuff from other stuff (like clocks), and do a little polymer clay work. There are also a million more crafts on my "To Learn" list...

I would LOVE anything either decorative or useful...there's not much I would turn down except poppets/dotees/scary dolls/clowns. Things to help me stay organized both with my job/school and craft hoard stash would be wonderful, and I'm also in love with handmade art (any media, love mixed-media), amigurumi, anything Harry Potter-related, steampunk, teeny tiny things, etc etc. My style is very vintage/antique/nostalgic, so if it's old or it looks old, I'll probably love it.


All of my boards are up for grabs, except for the non-crafty ones Smiley The most craft-centric ones to look at will probably be Crafty Wish List, TV and Movies, My Precioussss, Wish I Could Knit and Crochet, and the themed ones like Harry Potter, Steampunk Rock, etc.

No allergies here. Please, no supplies either. I've joined the De-stashalong this year to try and minimize my hoard!

hi... I'm Mindy and I live in SW Florida....I have been a Montessori teacher for about 15 years now. 95% of the time I LOVE what I do, the other 5% is usually ruined by the parents not the children. I am a single mom of 3, 2 kids.. (a son 16, a daughter 12) and a rescue mom to my wonderful ShiTzu "Tinkerbell" (who, mind you, came with her name). I'm a pretty mellow laid back individual, living life with the "Life is Good" motto!... the grass is never greener on the other side! I'm also a firm believer that COFFEE makes the world spin.....I'm a little, well maybe A LOT OCD, but it typically works out for the best.....I love exploring new crafts, and can usually figure out just about anything.... I'm not real good about following patterns, because I always want to make things a bit different so that its a one of a kind ..... whenever possible, I will always strive to.....REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE!!!

cat fur and I dont really get along, as long as your cat doesnt become best friends with what you are making for me and he doesnt slip into the box to be sent I should be fine..

My style/likes/wants/needs are pretty apparent on my pinterest boards, but feel free to ask any questions!!

boards that are for me to refer to would be...made by me....baby gift ideas..tutorials and ideas for others..... school ideas.... i need to do this.....wedding ideas for lou lou....

The rest of my boards are open for inspiration

I'm Cindy and I live in Alberta, Canada.  I work part-time at a doctor's office.  On my days off I like to crochet, quilt and cross stitch.  I think you can figure out my style from my Pinterest boards.  I like bright colors (but can't stand mint green and baby blue) and I also like dark green, dark blue and dark purple.  If you're unsure about something PM me and I'll gladly answer your questions.

Please do not pick from my Letters of the Alphabet, Yummy Food or Things I've Made boards but all the rest are fine.  I don't need exact replicas of what I show so feel free to use them as inspiration.

My newest board is called Pillow Covers and I wanted to explain that if you picked from that, don't send the pillow (that would be way too much postage) just send the cover and I'll provide the pillow.

Here's the link:  Pinterest

As far as supplies go, I have a board for Fabric and I'm pretty particular about it so please PM me if you have some similar and I'll let you know if it's close enough (don't mean to sound snotty here but I know what I like and want)   Grin

Hello darlings! My name is Tasha, I'm 27 years old and I live in Wilmington, NC. I have a pre-fiancee (it's been 5 years, I'm ready for this ring!), 2 dogs, and 2 kitties. I knit and read. Almost exclusively. I work in a coffee shop and drink lots of coffee and tea (mostly black). My Keurig is practically attached to my body. My favorite colors are blue, purple, pink, and gray (darker though, not neon). I have way too many toys and stuffed animals for someone my age without children.

I love bags/purses as well as all kinds of jewelry and notebooks/sketchbooks. My style is super simple most days; jeans/t-shirt/converse. I'm a laid-back guys' girl.

My Pinterest is here and I think it'd be easiest to keep it to the crafts/DIY board and the Doctor Who board. I just discovered Doctor Who (the new series) 4 months ago and recently got caught up. I am OBSESSED. Basically any Doctor Who craft would be awesome (my favorite is 10, but I love 11 to pieces, too). Feel free to just draw inspiration from any of my boards.

So I've just decided I'm going to be buying my very first sewing machine this weekend! As such, I have ZERO fabric stash. I will definitely accept fabric supplies! Also any sewing supplies you can offer would be AWESOME (I really would love to try quilting). I've been pinning TONS of sewing stuff in my crafts/knitting board on Pinterest. Seriously, anything you think I'd like/need, please send!!

I love nature's colors, my favorite being brown. Boring I know. I like to do embroidery, paper crafts, and sewing. I like to recieve all types of crafts. I am open to anything, although I do really hate clowns and monkeys. I prefer to stay away from neons and old lady florals(although I do like flowers).

I am still working on my pinterest so it isn't very big. Feel free to just use my pins/wists as an ispiration, I don't need exact replicas. I will also try to keep adding to my pinterest to help make it easier for you. If you need to go to my wist for inspiration, please do so. My wist is located in my profile. I love to be chatty so if you want to ask questions, send me a message! All pin boards(except my new Made by Me board) are ok to use. Also ok with supply claims.

I'm Kari from Wisconsin. I'm married with three kids (Kamilla-10, Alivia-7, Dalton-5) and am a SAHM.

I like most any color but prefer dark (burgundy, royal purple, brown...). I'm very casual but also like gypsy, goth and romantic styles. Halloween is a huge deal in our house but I'm not that into vampires and zombies. If you think of something you think I may like, please PM me so we can discuss, I'm very easy going and you'll probably think of something I'd like that I didn't know that I would like.

Use boards from Make this for us to Bookmarks. Be as creative as you would like with the signs and even though I have "For Gifts" I would like to receive these items also. Use my boards for inspiration, I don't think there are any pins that need to be exactly what the pic is. I am fine with supply claims. You may see some pins with **, these are items that rock my world. Please PM me for sizes of any clothes, hats, jewelry. I'm plus size and my kids are interesting shapes. Wink

Me: wool against my skin (hats, gloves, etc unless they are lined), eucalyptus, patchouli, seafood (not sure if this would be a concern) and cats if they roll around and leave a ton of dander/hair on things
Alivia: cats (same as me), perfume-y lotions, some foods

Hi everyone,
                I am Sam - Sam I am  Grin I am living in beautiful Wellington, New Zealand. 

My favourite colours are Blue and Green, all shades of both, I love the colour combination of blue and yellow, I also like black, silver, brown when combined naturally with green.  I like nature colours.  I don't like orange (unless for tiny details, like flames or pheonix detailing for instance) don't really like flourescents but don't mind naturally bright colours like in the rainbow. 

Here are the boards that are fair game and that I would love anything off: 
Things I would like

Jewellery I would like

bags I like the look of

clothing I would like

My Style

patterns I would like

Craft supplies I like

The only ones to avoid are 'craft ideas for me to make' as they are things I think I will make for others that I know, or the board 'for the home' because they are just lovely ideas for craft spaces and the 'food' because they are recipes for me to try...mmm...and they look good  Cheesy

I am a kindergarten teacher and so use that as an excuse for my love of all things cute, I love monsters and animals and love clothing with embellishments that I can wear to kindy (so with no swearing or images that may offend for instance, cute but also look nice).  Useful things are always good as space is a premium at times (my craft room is one that is also our spare bedroom so has to be convertible). So love books, sketch books, containers, clothing jewelry, craft kits and all sorts of other things.

 PM me for sizes of any clothing or just for chatting, I love to chat  Grin

My pinterest is a continual work in progress, so if you have any ideas of things you think I would love but not sure then please just message me. 

Here is my pinterest account:  http://pinterest.com/foxysam/

I have no allergies of concern but if posting to NZ please be careful not to send things filled with rice or wheat or so forth as customs will have a fit.  Just ask me if you have any concerns.

HP Craftalong!
