About me:
I live in Ontario, Canada with my husband and a house full of stuffies (a growing group led by one very opinionated stuffed puppy), and a toddler (who has her own growing army of stuffies).  I am a graduate student (finishing my PhD in Transportation Planning) and really can't decide what the future holds...

I would very strongly prefer if things came from a smoke free home due to allergies.  I have sensitive skin and cannot wear jewellery.

My favourite colours are black, dark purple, and red (especially dark or cranberry coloured reds).

I am always happy to answer questions, or provide clarification as I know I am not always as specific as I should be.  I am on pinterest: http://pinterest.com/kjlutz/ and there are ideas there of things I like for sure. 

I love M*A*S*H, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, CBC Radio and Calvin and Hobbes so just about anything related to those themes will be loved.

My toddler loves squirrels, foxes, tractors, farm animals, dogs, and her stuffed piggy.   

My Wishlist:
Big Things
A stuffed puppy of any variety
An orange cat puppet or stuffie like this (http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Chaos)
A wallet similar in style to this one (http://www.etsy.com/listing/55161829/bibi-bifold-pocket-wallet-with-long) out of cute or plaid fabric.
Felted Frog Flipper Slippers to look like Kermit the Frogs Feet (I have wide Ladies Size 6 feetI can provide measurements if necessary)
A Coraline Doll
A busy book for my toddler (talk to me if you have questions  there are some ideas of things I like on my pinterest and she loved doing up clips, snaps and zippers)
A zippered knitting needle case (similar in style to this one http://www.etsy.com/listing/109997252/dpn-and-hook-case-butterfly) for either double points or longs needles, or both.

Not so Big Things
Toy food or other pretend items for the toddler (she's getting a kitchen for Christmas and we would love some food to put in it--she loves pasta, broccoli, carrots, bagels with cream cheese, and lots of other foods and just about anything will be loved)   
Hand Carved Stamps (nature themed, science themed (esp Erlenmeyer flasks), transportation themed, snowflakes, or any of the above mentioned themes)
Embroidered, screened, or stenciled hankies
Cloth pads (with snap wings, and a waterproof layer)
Size 2T clothing incorporating any listed themes
Altered board books including any of the themes listed here.
Stitch markers (for knitting or crochet)
Handmade Cards (fairly multi purpose, would love if they had messages on the inside though (I have trouble filling all the empty space in blank cards))
Fabric napkins
Handmade soap especially spiced and other food scents

Any of Alan Dart's Wallace and Gromit or Shaun the Sheep Knitting Patterns
Alan Darts Westie Knitting Pattern
Novelty Fabrics (I am making an I-Spy Quilt so anything with a full image on it is great)
Buttons for clothing projects
Space themed fabrics or star trek coloured (black, blue, red, gold) fabrics for a Teesha Moore Style bag
Embroidery Floss
Clips like these (http://www.nancysnotions.com/product/wonder+clips+10+pack.do?extid=120201/)
Steam Punk bits and pieces
Beatles Fabric!!!

Thanks in advance.

Sometimes you get to change the world, and other times the world changes you.

The only PhD I earned stands for Pretty Happy Dropout! Now starting new adventures!

Hi, I am Onyxnox, and hope that you consider picking me Cheesy .  I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with my SO and two dogs.  I am a nurse.  I love to bead, knit/crochet, and craft in general.  I am learning woodburning, and love playing with things in general.  I love blues, greens, reds, purples.  Love either natural forest colours, or bright jewel tones.  HATE pink, orange, yellow as the main colour, and not fond of pastels.  I love working with wool, but can't wear it because of allergies.  Even working with it can be a challenge at times.  Definitely allergic to cats.  Love scents like lavender, lilac, citrus, cinnamon, berry.  Love live theatre, musicals, opera, and heavy metal.

Wish list:

1. PJ bottoms for myself or my man.  We are both "generously proportioned" and love comfy clothes.  He is happy with flannels, plain, some cute prints if they are manly (deer, dogs, cammo, hockey, beer, trucks, etc).  I love fun patterns - cows would be great, dogs, skully stuff, Hello Kitty, etc.
2. durable scrappy rag rugs for tossing in front of the kitchen sink or stove to cushion our feet and can handle being well scratched into comfy bed piles by the dogs, and lots of washing
3.  Table runners for both my coffee tables - sewn, embroidared; looking for something pretty with a leafy pattern, in greens/neutrals
4.  Would love anything stained glass or fused glass - love love love glass.  Small bowls, plates, window ornament, ring/earring holder, or decorations for a tree, or focal beads - that would be a big wish!
5.  Love ceramics too - beads, pots, coasters, decor
6.  Interesting garden ornaments - plant stakes, stepping stones, something to hang up in the trees, etc
7.  I collect black/white cow kitchen decor - so if anyone has a yen for embroidaring cows onto tea towels, or making a cow trivet, or (oh to dream!) a stained glass cow for my window - I would love you forever (though you may be cursed by DH!).
8.  felted dryer balls - especially if scent can be incorporated, and linen water
9.  A pretty ironing board cover
10. bath scrubs, lip balms
11.  Reusable fabric gift bags - general use (birthdays, etc) or (secular) Christmas/winter themed.
12. Any kind of art work inspired by my dogs
13. Anything inspired or off of my wist (link at the bottom of all my posts)
14. Reusable food wraps, snack bags, napkins for work lunches
15. a cool handbound cloth/leather/felt covered journal for jotting down ideas and inspirations, or zip up organizer
16. art quilts/wallhangings/hooplas
17. containers for my craft room, like fabric containers
18. quilty door hanging or runner that is Christmas themed for MIL
19. reusable swiffer pads, dish scrubbies
20. notebook cover/book covers, pencil cases
22. anything inspired by my pinterest boards
23. Cute girly, retro 50s housewife apron for MIL for Christmas
24. cute Christmassy tea towels and dish towels for MIL
25. mug rugs

Hello!  Summer here from the Lone Star State (Texas).  At the moment I am mainly embroidering, sewing, and crochetting, but I have a whole family of geeks here begging to be surprised.  Grin We all love Doctor Who (old & new), Star Wars, Star Trek, Superheroes, Megatokyo Legos, Science in general, Firefly, Retro Video Games, Dr Pepper, Hats, Retro SciFi, lots of music.....so Geekery in general. We also craft together on different projects.  We are also easily thrilled! Wink

Only real limitations are that it be safe for family viewing (check with me if unsure) and nothing with Latex as I am allergic to it in a bad way. 

Big wishes Not neccessarily in size but hope:
Mike Nesmith's Green Hat from the Monkeesfor Hubs
Felted Dryer Balls
Yarn House
Yarn Bowl
Cinch bag geek'd up a bit if possible.
Reading PIllow for keeping my place when I craft & homeschool & cook at the same time.
Ear Ivy / Climbing Earrings To Make Me Feel Amazing!  Simple (like a string of beads) is perfect as well, I prefer silver to gold.

Yarnie Goodness- My Yarncraft PinBoard
Fingerless gloves are a love of mine! They also help with some of my contact allergies. Simple, elaborate....all loved!
 Like these faux cabled,
 or Ninja,
 or Striped,
 or Geeked out Heroes
 ...or pretty much anything.

Amigurumi is always welcome!  This boardshows quite a few, many with pattern links.
There is the Starship Enterprise, Video Game, and cute critters/monsters.  Have another idea that isn't there, run with it- I'm really too easily pleased!

If you are one of those who can whip up socks or slippers- I love you!  I'm having to limit elastic, so am in need of something to warm up cold toes in a ladies 7.5 to 8 

Any kind of bag or container is great as well, but I haven't got those links ready.

Sewin' Love- PinBoard for Sewn Goodies
There is a Bag Addiction that I am not even trying to shake.  If it holds things, I want it! Boxy Bag, Foxy Wristlet , Pow Pouch , Pour-proof Purse or even just a simple Tote with a fun look. 

Plush/Stuffed toys love my home as they are never ignored for long.  A lot are listed on my sewn board, but check my Geekin' Board for more inspiration.
Tiny things that fit in pockets are positively delightful as well, like these Monster Keychains,or small woodland creaturesor really anything from my badges board would make a great stuffed friend.

Supplies/Store bought extras:
Small colorful zippers
Yarn-Anything except Red Heart Brand please.  I adore self striping! Even leftover miniballs would be fun.
Felt- Yes to it all, if it is wool felt I will be beaming for ages
Gummy candy- it keeps the crafting going and can therefore be considered "supplies" by me!
Crochet Hooks- I tend to leave them places...
Embroidery Hoops- Any size
Safety Eyes- Any size/color
Buttons- Anything interesting looking
Thread- I think the dust bunnies are eating it like spaghetti
Embroidery Floss- This is licorice to the same bunnies, and I can use most colors.
My Little Pony or Lego Minifig Blind Packs- I have some ideas that I need duplicates for..

If you need more options, I have a hoopla wall that desperately wants to grow with inspiration, cheesiness, or geekery.

 I also collect salt & pepper shakers, frogs, goldfish, & peacocks.  For colors, jewel-tones, bold colors, and greys/blacks are your best bet for the whole family. 

Stalk my Pintrest or Craftster account....Get an idea, run with it.....Thank you for considering me!

My name is Susan, and I live in Australia with my partner and 3 kids. I love anything to do with dragons, and have a very detailed pinterest for both crafty things and bought things, plus lots of my likes and interests, so there's plenty of inspiration and a feel for what I like. We are a very geeky household.
I also have a detailed questionnaire page on my blog. It has some common questions and also some sizes and measurements.
I'm not religious or easily offended. My favourite colours are Purple, Silver, Rainbow, Black.

My eldest son is allergic to dogs and cats so please don't claim me for yarn or fabric type things if you have either. Things like jewellery, hooplas/wall art and anything that won't hold saliva/fur is ok to come from pet households though

I'm more than happy for you suprise me with anything from, or inspired by, my Pinterest Smiley

I'd love something to corral unruly yarn balls while I crochet - this could be a yarn holder bag of some description, or even a decorated teapot, as long as it has a hole to let the yarn spool out of and keeps the ball from bouncing around on my dirty floors, I'm not fussy. (Don't judge me, I'd rather crochet than mop ok?)
I like bags. I collect them on Pinterest, but I can always use more in real life, especially project bags.
7.5" Cuff bracelets (to fit a 6" wrist)
Oven mitts - I'd love a pair like these pixel mitts
Something tree print, with J+S "carved" in it, like this hoop (but doesn't have to be a hoop)
Embroidered hoops - feel inspired by, but not limited to, my Hoopla board
anything rainbow, dragon, or caffeine themed
knitted gargoyle (if you are more skilled than I, and can recreate this in crochet, that's cool too)
stud earrings or other silver toned jewellery
I'm addicted to button badges!
patches or quilted squares for a TeeshaMoore/sheepBlue style bag I want to make. I'd love Craftster contributed squares!

Super big mega wish: a head. Foam glass, paper machie, whatever would get here in one piece. I need it lifesize, for taking photos and blocking hats/beanies. Most pressing need is for an adult size, but I could use a child size one as well (but I have real kids for that, so not as urgent) Not fussed about medium or style, as long as it is life size (although if it was covered in porn, that would probably be a problem for taking photos)
self striping rainbow yarns (acrylic or superwash) with long colour runs
glow-in-the-dark or UV reactive yarns
Craft how to kits: I'd love to learn leatherwork, stamp carving, jewellery making, glass etching
ink pads for stamping
7.5mm safety eyes in solid black, or any colours/styles
whimsies (with or without jar lol)
freezer paper for stenciling (hard to find here)
shrinky dink pages
(there's also a whole board of supply type things on my Pinterest, including a separate board for my yarn lusts)

Also, I like the peanut butter/chocolate combination. We can get American candy here, but it's very expensive. Gummies are awesome, especially sour gummies, because they won't get stolen by my children or partner.

When considering claiming me, or what to put in my parcel, please take a look at the customs and quarentine restrictions. Sometimes things can get through, but sometimes the receiver can be threatened with a fine - feel free to PM me if you want to check anything.

Thanks for claiming me, and I'm quite happy to discuss things - don't worry, I don't bite! Cheesy

Hi, I'm Leslie.  I live in the US with my husband and four cats.  I have no allergies, although I prefer not to receive anything smelling of smoke.  I don't wish to receive any jewelry.

--I collect embroidered or cross-stitched pieces with the edges left unfinished that I can use in future projects (like a journal cover or on a bag).  I like things like: animals, nature (tree, leaf, bird, feather, egg, nest, flower, etc), koi/waterlily/pond; a capital "L" filled with a design; a heart with wings; or anything inspired by my Pinterest.  Send more than one if you want--the more the merrier!

--An altered tin to store full photo memory cards

--Any sort of soft and cozy cat bed.  We have 4 cats, so if you want to make two or three or even four, that's okay with me!

--Clothes or accessories for a Blythe doll.  I got a Blythe this summer and I've only made two dresses for her. She has nothing!  She needs everything!  There are a few ideas on my Blythe board on pinterest.

--Slippers, women's size 10.  Anything really--knit, crochet, fabric--my feet are getting cold!

--Reusable Swiffer pads, something like THIS.  I don't know if the different types of swiffers are different sizes, but the one I have has a 4" x 10" mop head (I guess you call it a head...anyway, the part you mop with is 4" x 10"!!)

--Anything featuring a heart with wings.

--Hand-carved stamps.  I would like something interesting that I could stamp on the outside of swap packages--pretty images like a swirl or flower; or "surprise"; or a wrapped present, that kind of thing.

--Anything inspired by my Pinterest.

--I desperately want some white paint pens, but haven't found any.

--Copic markers, any color.

--DMC embroidery floss, any amount, any color.  Even partially-used skeins are fine.  I have a basket full of random bits of embroidery floss that I affectionately refer to as my "tangle".  Whenever I want to add a bit of embroidery to something, I pull out a few strands and start stitching!

--Tiny metal cookie cutters for working with polymer clay.  Under 1" would be ideal.  Any shape, but I especially like hearts, animals, houses, flowers.

I would TOTALLY be down with suereal's idea Smiley

Hi All- My Name is Alyssa. I am currently a student, getting my MS in Criminal Justice. I already have a graduate degree in Forensic Anthropology, but can't get a freaking job, so I am piling on the degrees Smiley
I live in Southern California, am a football junkie (Go Bucks and Go Pats!!), used to work in costumes and wigs in professional theatre, love reading, sewing and bones/skeletons. Fall is my favorite time of year because of Halloween, football season and My Birthday!! Smiley
Now for the list!

Crafted items:
3D skull. Artistic interpretations, functional, biological specimen style - anything of that sort. I love skulls and have a great desire to have a collection of 3d ones. I already have a crocheted skull, so other than that, free reign

Tunic style tops/ or long tees with stencils/ fabric appliqu (misses XL, but need to be long I have the longest freaking torso!) Dark colors preferred

rhinestone brooch or hair bob. I am obsessed with rhinestones and feathers.

decorative or functional embroidery pieces (decorative being self explanatory and functional being tea towels, pillow cases, clothing, etc.)

Cool decorated or cool fabric pillow cases (standard size)

A knit pencil skirt (like jersey or something like that)

Craft Supplies
Rhinestones! or broken bits of rhinestone jewelry so I can make something out of it

Old anatomy text books or text book pages (I have a vision of making a decoupaged bookshelf covered in "body parts" and the like)

anatomically correct organ/bone embroidery patterns or cross stitch charts

I would never say no to fabric Smiley

millinery veiling/supplies

Cameos - the more random the better!!

Additional Note
I love anything with bones!! and Tea or tea related things!

I also have pintrest, wist, amazon lists - feel free to surprise me off of them!! Go crazy - about 99.9% are moderately realistic Wink

Hi!  Im Alicia!  Im a chemistry grad student in Wisconsin.  I live with my boyfriend and two cats.

Likes:  lots of color! (especially blues and greens), argyle, anything food or cooking related, sciencey things (chemistry especially of course), using old, unloved things to make new, useful ones, wolves, video games (Luigi is my favorite!), BOOKS (fantasy FTW), faeries, Ireland, and RPGs
Dislikes:  Super pink and cutesy or death/goth things.  Also, the color orange (its fine in small amounts, just dont generally like it as the main color).


Homemade lotions/body butters- I have eczema, so anything with dry skin love would be great (please no soap though, full up on that at the moment!)

Wool socks-knitted, crocheted, made from felted sweaters, whatever!- (US womens size 9 1/2).  I live in WI.  Warm socks are a must. Grin

Something World of Warcraft related for the bf.  He plays an Alliance Dranei Shaman, and would love something with his totem on it. 

Amigurumis of Mario or Bowser.  I got Luigi and my bf thinks we should have a whole set!

Very simple braided wire ring, with or without a small stone/bead.  Either size 9 for a thumb ring or size 7 for a regular ring. 

Cute herbal sachets- anything that smells good, but lavender is my absolute favorite!

Tie-dyed anything!  Clothing especially, but if you incorporate it into something else you make for me, Im sure to love that too!

A votive holder like this.  Nightmare Before Christmas just like this would be great, or something cool from one of my other themes.

A serger cover for a Brother 1034D

A waterfall cardigan, in any color other than gray, similar to this

Maxi skirts, pretty much any style or colors

Anything from my pinterest would be loved, as well as anything inspired by the things on there, or my likes, or really anything you just love to make! 

Craft Supplies

I would love an all-supplies package, and used (and clean) is always fine!
Fiskars 45mm rotary cutter replacement blades

Water-soluble fabric markers

Any of the books on my pinterest board here

A simple key stamp (handmade or storebought).  I am looking to make a surcoat like this

Fabric- plain cuts large enough to make clothing in things like wool, linen, nice cottons.  I have lots of crazy polyester prints, but I want to make some nice classic basics. 

Any sewing (not quilting) magazines, especially Threads and Burda Style/WOF

Serger thread!  Basics like black and white would be nice, but if you need to destash colors I would use those too!

Cotton clothesline/cord to make fabric bowls with.  This stuff goes like water, so I will take absolutely as much as you want to send me!

Rit Dye- any color other than black or navy blue, any amount. 

Tailors ham or sleeve board (or both!)

Gutterman thread, any color

Thank you for claiming me!
