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!!!

I'm Claiming Redstar 13 for a reusable shopping bag, a charger pocket from her pinterest and maybe a brooch if I've worked too quickly Tongue Send-out date March 14th.

1st claim - 1/0/0

Hi, I'm Adinda. I'm a 23 y.o. Network Engineer from Belgium, currently living in the Netherlands because I landed a really cool job. I live with my web designer boyfriend (6 years together come June!) and our 2 granny cats. If you watch Criminal Minds, you know me: I am real life Penelope Garcia. Honestly, the likeness is uncanny, our boyfriends even have the same name! I guess I really am an all-purpose geek, with my techie IT-job, my passion for reading fantasy novels and doing socially misfit things like crochet!

Please: no toys for the cats. They don't care for them at all, not even with catnip. Which I presume is good, because I got a terrible migraine when my mother got us a bag of catnip toys. I respond heavily to smells, so please don't perfume anything. If you're a smoker, please make sure to wash before sending. I've got very sensitive, dry, itchy skin, so please avoid stuff that's remotely prickly. If you have samples of soap or skin care products lying around, save them for somebody else, because I often get allergic responses. Don't know to what specific compound(s) and there's too much out there to test for according to the doctor, so I just stick with what I know works for me.

My style is all over the place: I'm into steampunk, I like most things '50s and '60s, pin-ups, burlesk, but I also like middle-eastern (1001 nights) and fantasy/fairy tale inspired stuff. I like bold, bright colours and cheerful patterns, both in my wardrobe as in my home (our bedroom has a fuschia wall). I'm not into black-and-white nor neons nor pastels. For clothes, colours that work best with my skin tone are: mustard yellow, brick orange, petrol blue, fuchsia, powder pink, aubergine, olive greens, most purples and browns.

Favorite animals: owls, peacocks, cephalopods, seahorses, cats
Favorite flowers: fuchsia, lilies (both regular, calla's and waterlilies), bleeding hearts, daisies, orchids
Favorite food-designs: cherries, strawberries, pears, apples, pea-pods

Most favorite thing in the entire world, ever: red shoes. All red shoes, but patent leather red heels in particular. Probably not remotely relevant, but you never know...

Least favorite animals: dolphins & other whales, horses
Least favorite designs: hearts, plaids, pied-de-poule, cupcakes, skulls/skeletons

I'm one of the rare individuals that does not like Disney. I'm not saying they are bad, I liked the films etc., but they tend to overshadow stuff that is a lot nicer. Also, most of their stuff is too polished, too "clean". I much more prefer art that's a bit truer to life in the drawing&colouring, and that has a bit more depth.

I've made some life-style changes recently, and I'm down 8kg with the intent to lose another 20 (it's scary!) so I look all "gangsta" because of sagging pants. Also, this is a hidden request not to include candy in the extra's Wink I take a weekly belly dancing class, my bike is my main method of transportation and I've switched to healthier (but still delicious!) cooking Smiley

Here are some pictures of our home: http://adindadelporte.kevincelis.com/?page_id=112
We've moved some pieces of furniture and we now have curtains in the kitchen and office space too.

Crafted items I would like:
1. Belly dancing belt/hip scarf
2. Convertible dress http://rowena.typepad.com/rostitchery/infinity-dress.html
3. Flannel pajamas
4. Comfy jersey morning robe
5. Steam-punk wall art
6. 50's style apron - with green to match my kitchen curtains: http://www.ikea.com/nl/nl/catalog/products/70191770/#/90191769
7. Slippers - european foot size 39
8. Travelling crochet bag (see below) - BIG WANT
9. Bicycle handlebar muffs
10.Book seat https://www.thegallerie.com.au/product/book-seat Willing to stuff it myself to keep shipping cost down. Would love it in a patterned fabric, brown&green.
11.Feathered fans
12.Accordion filing folder - steampunk/burlesque/pin-up design on the outside
13.Slave bracelets or anklets for belly dance (covers back of your hand/foot, attaches to middle finger/toe)
14.Tissue-box covers (boxes here are 23cmx11.5cmx7cm, opening is 13cm long and centered)
15.Anti-snoring chin strap for my mother, who currently uses (I kid you not!) adhesive tape to keep her mouth shut during the night...
16.Tea cozy
17.A non-dorky looking fluorescent vest for on my bike (if that is, at all, possible)
18. NEW Lace fingerless gloves
19. NEW Tampon pouch
20. NEW Drip mat (Is that what it's called? Something to put wet dishes on after you've washed them, so the excess water can drip off.)
21. NEW Dream-catchers or wind-chimes for our guest bedroom - we want to make sure they have a good's night rest Smiley

Supplies that would make me happy:
1. Crochet yarn in bright colours, non-variegated. My favorite hook sizes are in the 4mm to 6mm range, so something that works with that. I prefer cotton and synthetic, because most natural wool makes my skin itch.
2. Coins, bells or mirrors for belly dance costumes
3. Beads for belly dance costumes
4. Crochet-pattern for belly dance hip scarf with beads and bells (http://www.etsy.com/listing/60831852/bellydance-trio-3-crochet-patterns - maybe contact seller if she's willing to sell only Mesh Hip Scarf or Ribbon Coin Belt)
5. Low calorie Jell-o packets - gelatin kind. I don't know what flavors I like as you can't find this here!
6. Old editions of crochet/sewing magazines
7. Old-fashioned keys
8. Gears (how cool would it be to use gears in stead of coins in a belly dance costume?)
9. Filligree pieces (e.g. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Lak_b0Jft1Q/TjR6b6pNPLI/AAAAAAAAW_M/53L6DIxYXSE/s1600/IMG_3383.jpg)
10.Patterned, bright-coloured flannel for a grown-up pajama (no stripes or squares please)
11.Lace ribbon, 2cm to 15cm wide, at least 2m long
12.Eyelet maker
13.Odd bits of chain
14.Scrabble letters
15.Pawns and dice
16.Traditional dominoes

Travelling crochet bag
I love taking along my crochet when I'm travelling, so I have stuff to do on the train. I currently stuff my work in a plastic bag that goes into my backpack, but I have issues with unravelling work, pointy scissors, yarn that gets tangled with different colours and hooks that escape through the plastic. I have a picture in my head of a bag that would make crocheting during travel easy, but my sewing machine refuses to cooperate. Here's a sketch:
Clasp: like what you find on most lanyards, narrower is better than wider.
Blue print, left: current yarn pocket, kept closed with elastic - or draw string, I'm not sure: you don't want to pull the yarn out off the pocket while you're working
Blue print, right: pocket for other yarn colours, preferably kept tight with elastic
Size: I think anything from 30cm x 25cm to 40cm x 30cm would work quite well?

My name is Audrey. I’m from Ohio, USA. I’m twenty years old and a physics student. I really love Science and Scifi. I love altered, rusty, glitter, cute, colorful, and many other things. My favorite colors are Purple (especially Lilac), Light/Medium Grey, Black, Green (Brights). I really like all colors, but would prefer not to get anything large and wearable to be yellow/red/orange, but small item in those colors are perfect! There is tons of color inspiration on my pinterest. Though I am a nerd, I don’t need everything nerdy related (though I do want a lot of that stuff). I also love girly, classy things. I really can’t describe myself very well but if you take a peak at my pinterest you might get what I’m about!

I LOVE thrift store finds.

I don’t want anything made from wool (I’ll be sooo itchy), stuff with iron on transfers, made of pearler beads, anything from the dollar store craft section or the kids craft section (unless it's done in a very altered/mature type of way ) if you get my drift.

You should be able to find PLENTY of inspiration on my pinterest, but you can always contact me with questions at anytime!

My Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/audarnell

01. ‘a’ Charm I would LOVE a Double Story lowercase letter ‘a’ custom stamped necklace. I’d like it silver-ish (if it’s stamped metal) or bright purple (if it’s clay), circle shaped, smaller than an inch. If you’d like to send a chain with it, I’d prefer 20-24in length. link
