Hello, I'm Mercedes and I'm in northern Wisconsin.   I have two dogs and two cats, no allergies.

I love fiber but NOT yarn.  I don't knit or crochet, so I am very impressed by yarny things.  I love absolutely anything in miniature form. Seriously, anything.  I am currently working on a couple mini houses (like half-scale or smaller, but I'm not picky about scale) and hoarding everything tiny that I can find.  I also love wall art, especially things in abnormal sizes- I'm a huge fan of 5-6" squares, especially in sets of three.  Is that odd?  Anyway, I like earthy/natural colors but unless it's for clothing or something, I'm not too picky.  I don't really like busy patterns, flower prints, neon, or pastel. 

My Pinterest is huge so I will try to be specific Smiley  Useful boards:
"Pretty things-" for wall art/photography/inspiration
"Tiny things-" Mini things I like and inspiration
"Mini house-" Mini themes and ideas that I would like to include in current or upcoming projects
"Better homes and gardens-" Mostly ourdoor/yardy inspiration
"Yarny things I want-" Pretty self explanatory. Make me anything inspired by this board and you will be my best friend.
"Home decor-"  Self explanatory
"Handmade stuff I want-" general lovely craftiness
"Palletize"- If you dare!  You might have trouble fitting these projects in the mail though....
"Wishlist-" Mostly non-crafted things, but feel free to use it for inspiration
"Crafty inspiration"- Stuff I like and I might make if I ever feel so inspired, but I would also love to receive.
"My imaginary style pinboard-"  As stated, this is mostly stuff I love but would never *actually* wear.  But some of it I might.  So if you really feel inspired by something on this board, check with me first Smiley

Everything else probably isn't super relevant to crafting.  I don't really like stuff with words/quotes on it even though I have (at least) a whole board of that.  The "pin me something" board is one that I share with my friends so that we can share ideas/mock each other. Smiley

Hey all! I'm Andrea, from the Houston area of Texas. Summer is my favorite crafting time- it's too darn hot here to do anything else!

All of my boards are open, feel free to choose anything you like (except the stuff marked with Peanut). 'Based on' items are fine, too. I don't have any kids, but I do have a niece- anything marked with Peanut in the description is for her, and I'd prefer to craft those items myself. Supplies are fine, too- I have a soft spot in my heart for handmade yarn (and really, who doesn't?)

I teach, so if you feel like making posters of any of the sayings on there for my classroom, feel free!

Excited to be aboard, looking forward to a great month of crafting awesomeness! Exclamatory sentences all over my bio!

If you need sizes or color preferences or whathaveyou, just pm me!

Hi!  My name is Leigh-Ann, and I live in Indialantic, FL with my almost 5yr old son. 

We are both VERY allergic to smoke (asthma).

We are vegetarian, so no leather, feathers, etc please. 

Here is my pintrest link: http://pinterest.com/leighi123/

Anything on there is fine with me!  Except the ones that say "The Little Sewing Shop", those link back to my blog.  And probably not the food, I don't think that would work in the mail! 

Levi's 5th birthday is in July, so I'd love some handmade goodies for him.   His party is going to be on June 30th, and its going to be Guinness Book of World Records theme, so anything either for his party (decor, party favors for his friends, cupcake toppers, banners, etc) , or gifts that go with that theme would be great too. 

If you do any clothing items, it is HOT here, so we need summer stuff.  Levi wears a 4T in shirts and 3T in bottoms, I wear a size small/XS in shirts/dresses.  I can provide measurements if needed.

My favorites: bright colors, orange, rainbow, nature inspired colors, the ocean, reading, travel, things that smell good, summer things, dolphins, sea turtles, sewing, cake decorating and FABRIC! .

Levi's favorites: PURPLE!  (and I dont mind purple clothing), or bright colors (he likes aqua/turquoise as his second favorite colors), animals of any kind, surfing, skateboards, gardening, cooking, books, swimming, anything adventurous, The Little House on the Prairie books, Guinness book of world records, music, pirates, rescue boats, rescue dogs, super heros (generic).    He is homeschooled and will be starting first grade.  He is super smart, friendly, and happy!

Dislikes (both of us), pastel colors, camo, lace, frilly stuff, itchy stuff, not a big fan of navy blue or olive green or red on boys clothes - too boring!   Levi does not watch any TV at all.  And nothing violent please (swords etc)

Hello crafty friends! My name is Katyanne, and I am HAPPY to be part of this swap.

I am 25 years old, a registered nurse, and a self proclaimed nerd. I live here in the seacoast of NH with my lovely husband Jon.

I am an avid pinterest-er. I would say all my boards are fair game, and they're always expanding! (Extra points if you can craft from the nom nom board :-P) I would love supplies as well and things inspired by pins.

Primarily I make things for my new home and for other people. We recently bought a new home and are putting our own spin on it. Lots of greens and blues throughout. I personally love love love GREEN. I love the idea of practical yet aesthetic objects for my home.

No allergies or sensitivities to worry about here, let the fun begin!!!!

You have to be a member for 30 days, and you have to have made 15 posts (but you've already taken care of that part, I see   Wink).

The good news is that this is an ongoing swap, so you can join next month!    In the meantime, you can try to  be a swap angel or you can do personal swaps. 

Hope that helps!  Smiley
