Hi there! I'm TroubleT and I live near Atlanta, GA with my wonderful husband and 2 kidlets. I am a Spanish teacher by day and a crazy crafting ninja momma by night. Cheesy

There's also 2 boards on my Pinterest, Want! and Craft These for Me Please!, that you can peruse if you like. Link is in my signature.

My Wishlist

BIG wish! - A dark colored duffle bag for my martial arts gear. It needs to be big enough to carry my gloves, boots and sparring helmet. Maybe be like this only with out the Tai Chi decor. Honestly though, I'd be happy with something like an oversized reusable shopping bag that zips so that my gear can't fall out which a problem I have now. A sturdy, dark colored fabric is a MUST!

OR a dark colored Uh OH! bag to go inside my gear bag to hold things like bandaids, first aid ointment, aspirin. Maybe if it had zippered pockets for little stuff like this one.

~Wall art in your favorite medium - Theme ideas, preferably a nature theme but not cutesy. I LOVE Fall so leaves or trees would be a WIN!
~Embroidery for my Hoopla Wall  - I have lots of theme ideas on my blog's Swap page. See above link.
~Artwork or Hoopla for my class room - Lots of possibilities here!
~Stenciled t-shirts (adult large, prefer men's style shirt w/o a pocket, cap sleeves look horrible on me) - I have a Tees for Me! board on my Pinterest.
~an altered zip up hoodie - themes like nature, Buddha (ohm would be cool!) or Japanese culture
~earrings - I prefer small danglies, not super danglies, post or fish hook is fine.
~a hanging earring holder that matches my bedroom or bathroom
~heavy duty pot holders - we cook a LOT with cast iron so it needs to be well padded.
~handmade ceramic coffee mug, maybe like this one
~a Teacher mug rug for work - No Apples though...*shudder*
~reusable snack bags for carrying mid morning munchies to work
~an oversized cowl, big enough that it can double as a loose hood would be WONDERFUL!
~crocheted/knitted/sewn socks or house slippers (size US 7.5)
~headbands, barrettes or hair clips - I wear my hair back a lot but I'd prefer something not too decorative. I'd look silly in my martial arts class with a big mum on the side of my head. Wink
~headwarmer like a panta - YES PLEASE! dark green, burgundy, navy or chestnut brown
~a jewelry bowl (or saucer) so that I would take my jewelry off in the same place every afternoon.
~a full kitchen apron w/ pockets for me - I'm a shorty so ask me for measurements! I like the look of the repurposed men shirt aprons that I've seen on Pinterest.
~handmade Christmas ornaments - I love quirky, comical ornaments. Nothing religious please. There's no such thing as crafting too early for Christmas OR having too many ornaments. Wink http://www.growandmake.com/apron-tutorial2 , http://pinterest.com/pin/47569339783607837/ ,
~Sewn holiday coasters - I'd love some of these with snowmen or snowflakes. I can't have ceramic coasters in my house with 3 pets and 2 kids.
-ceramic or wooden trivets - We cook with heave cast iron so they need to be sturdy.
~a Kitty Pi for my Raven kitty - could be sewn, crocheted or knitted. She would LOVE this. Smiley
~a stamped necklace with my son's name - PM me for his name

~embroidery thread, cotton please, I would like to try a skein of the glow in the dark stuff though.
~wooden embroidery hoops
~Vanishing fabric pens - I go through these really fast!
~stitch markers for crochet
~fun fat quarters - I like doing small projects with them.
~fusible interfacing - medium or heavy weight
~pretty blank note cards to put in swap packages
~rotary cutter blades

Hi! I'm Petra, 25, and I come form Slovenia (Europe). I'm currently unemployed and working on finishing my university degree with a very long paper about the female characters in the Disney Princesses animated films. I live with my father and dog (and usually with my boyfriend, but he's currently working in Cambridge). I love sewing and I'm getting more and more interested in machine embroidery and digitizing. I also LOVE baking and I'm learning sugar crafts . I also love travelling, reading and watching TV series:)
I like natural colours(like brown and green), but I also like fashionable colours like mint and neons if combined with neutral tones. The only thing I can think of not liking are skulls.
I have no allergies (I just can't wear earrings).


Crafty things

-anything with a cable knit (socks, hat, mittens, pullover... anything:))
-hoopla art
-hair accessories (especially headbands)

-a (faux) leather clutch
-jewellery (except earrings;)), especially rings
-oven mittens
-random wall art
-funny/cute T shirt inspired by stalking me:) (or a t-shirt for my boyfriend if you would rather make one for a guy. he's a bass player and a computer programmer who likes most of the things I like:))
-anything inspired by my pinterest Smiley http://pinterest.com/pkok/ (but ask me first, because I already got some things in previous swaps)
-dog toys/ accessories (very durable ones, since our dog likes to destroy things:))


-fabric. any kind you think I would like, any quantity
-thread for machine embroidery
-sewing machine needles
-sewing magazines
-wedding magazines (I might or might not get married next year. I don't know yet;), have to ask for his hand in marriage first:))
-fondant stamps and cutters
-freezer paper: I have no idea what that is, but sounds like a lot of fun:)


-exotic spices (or spice mixes)

Thank you for potentially claiming me!

Hi all, I'm Mary Ann and I live in Portland OR, USA.   I like to sew, quilt, crochet, make everything bath and body and dabble in a couple other things. I would love anything off my list or a Pinterest surprise! No clothing (for me) or jewelry please, I'm picky on clothing and have contact dermatitis so I can't wear jewelry, no matter what it's made out of. I love turquoise, silver, and am currently having a torrid love affair with gray. I like most colors.  I love gerber daisies .

Crafted Items

--A Hoopla! (is that the singular form? I mean you can send me plural if you want Wink ) Some themes that would be cool are any quotes or characters from any interests found in my profile, quick recap on faves: Clueless, Office Space, How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, Friends, Buffy, Zelda, Mario, the short story "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. I also love dress forms and have several mini quilts in dress form theme, so would love to continue that collection

--I would love this one in particular To Whom Hoopla

--Something bookish and crafty. I have a BA in English Literature and Writing, so anything classic inspired or referencing books/words/writing is cool. No bookmarks please because I am a naughty lady and just dog ear the corners (and have a Kindle). Old books turned into something new is cool, like these shelves or just book themed like this block (would be a cool pillow)

--A soft sewn scarf made out of stretch jersey. Plum, turquoise, or gray would be lovely!

--A table runner, I have various kinds pinned on a couple of my Pinterest boards (Decorative and Crafted Items You Can Make for Me and Crafts I Want to Make)

--Place mats! Either my style or something kid-ish that my nephews might like.

--A fun centerpiece that I could use year round (not holiday or season specific). I have a few pinned on the Decorative Board. Can you tell my dining room table is kinda sad and needs to be prettied up!?

--A travel paper piecing kit like this:

--Hair clips of the "alligator clip" style. I love flowers. I don't need matching pairs since I only wear one at a time. I have dark hair so I love bright colors and light colors, black gets lost up in there Smiley This is just one style I think is lovely. Small to medium sized is cool (probably not bigger than 3 inches across?). Decorated bobby pins (glittery!) are also welcome, I chopped my hair to about chin length.

--Pretty random, but I would love a stitched/painted/some form of this: Hit the toilet, dummy! with a picture of a bar of soap and some soap bubbles. Family story lol.

--Any wall art, painted, mixed media, photography, whatever. I do love the types that have a page from a book as the background and some kind of figure in front of it.

--Some luggage handles like these, except not in red or pink or purple please (my current luggage is burgundy.)

--A pinterest surprise! It doesn't have to be off the "Crafted items you can make for me" board, my "Decorative" board and even the "Crafty things I want to Make" boards have cool stuff that I just might not get around to making. Wink Just no clothing or jewelry please, even if I have it pinned!  Kiss And I think I have a couple items there that I specifically say I want to make for some person or other so not those please.


--Stenciled/painted/decorated t-shirts for my nephews. They are size 4T, 6, and 8. They like bugs, trucks, super heroes, typical boy stuff. Blues, greens, orange and red are popular with them.

Craft Supplies

--Any of these craft books, or these craft books especially Circle Quilts or Modern Blocks or Scrap Republic I love craft books, and would welcome pretty much any quilting, crochet, or embroidery book, but if it's not on my list maybe check with me first since I do have a pretty decent collection Cheesy Of course I welcome used books!

--Fabric! I love fabric, especially quilting cottons. Strangely enough I never seem to have enough solids but I love fun prints. I can always use polka dots and stripes as mixers and love modern florals, but not old timey ones. There's some examples of what I like on here:

--This (or other) chevron fabric would be a great staple

--A book of cross stitch patterns would be great

--Any of these fabrics from the Summersville by Lucie Summers line:  Brush Strokes, Scandi, Fall, Check/Weave in any of the color ways but the red (London)

--I LOVE Michael Miller Ta Dots dots fabric.

--Any Laura Gunn fabric (although I have tons of the Poppy linesome Lantern Bloom would be amazing, or Garden Wall or Magnolia Lane)

--Riley Blake Winter Wonderland to do some Christmas stitching!

--Fun buttons are always welcome

--I would love a couple yards of stretch jersey or other stretch fabric to attempt a dress (I haven't made clothing in years!)

--I love trim like tiny ric rac or double fold bias tape

--I love Lion Brand Microfiber yarn and am collecting it for a big project. I like all the colors but I think I dont have any of the periwinkle-ish color so that would be cool (not sure what its exact name is)


--I've never kicked chocolate out of bed, especially if it's Lindt or Cadbury or contains nuts. Yum!
--Any books you've read and would like to pass along, I love horror, sci-fi, fantasy, supernatural stuff!
--Random treats or tiny toys for my 3 nephews are always welcome, they are 4, 6 , and 8

Hi! I'm Katy and live in south central PA in the US. I teach 2-year-olds for a living, which can be a little crazy at times! I live in my small apartment with my 2 guinea pigs, Lily and Luna. I only have seasonal allergies to stuff that grows outside, so nothing for you to worry about. Smiley My favorite color is green. I tend to prefer shades on the darker side (not so much granny smith apple, more forest). My least favorite colors are the classic 70's colors - mustard yellow, olive green, burnt orange, salmon. I'm a pretty relaxed person, not super girly, though I love a good romance. I'm not a fan of anything with skulls, violence, or gore. I would prefer to receive no nudity. Swearing is fine, though. I'm also a big fan of Harry Potter and Doctor Who! My kitchen colors are red and yellow, my living room colors are jewel tones, and my bedroom is blue and brown. I wear earrings and necklaces, but no rings or bracelets, please. They would just sit looking pretty in a drawer.

so. here's me. slothy- i live in Stratford Ontario CANADA. i have a hubby and a bouncing baby boy who is 11.   we share our home with a psychotic cat and a neurotic cat.
i love fresh, clean, simple lines, colours and scents. yellow, blue, green, grey, plum!  mint, eucalyptus, linen, citrus.
i love to  cook  and experiment in the kitchen with flavours and techniques. in the summer i am outside in the garden all the time.

i do not like pink, fruity sweet smells and strictly decorative object d'art. my profile has more info. and my  pinterest and wist has lots of ideas?  i think so anyway.

I don't knit or crochet but I think the ami angry birds are the best things ever. I am a bit of a geeky girl.  Science and math, Dr Who, hubby is a gamer so some old skool game things would be cool too.

Hi! My name is Blair and I'm in Minnesota. Starting to get a bit chilly here, so it's starting to be amazing for indoor crafting. Who am I kidding? Any weather is good weather for crafting!!!

I hope I'm doing this correctly, so here goes...

No one in the house has any allergies of any kind.
My profile is pretty flush with my fave movies, tv, and music. If you take a glance at my pinterest, you may see a bit of a nerd-centric theme. I do wave my nerd flag high, but please don't feel penned in by this.

My pinterest:

Color aesthetic: I've been really liking this lady's color palate so if choosing something not entirely themed based you can't go wrong with these...

Fave themes:
Nerd, Retro Housewife, woodland/fantasy, and kitch...

Not so Faves:
Animal Prints, Purples (as the main color), clothing, earrings, country, and food (or perhaps it's the food that does not like me  Wink)

Ok on with the wishes

For me:
10 x 10 inch cloth napkins- I love to mix and match my table so barring anything listed above go nuts!
tea wallet
full apron- I love all aprons, but this one would rock! http://pinterest.com/pin/237072367855168241/
Kitchen Towels- Embroidered, stenciled, or stamped the technique doesn't matter as much as they are fun!
Fabric Waste Bag for Car
Hoopla- I have a wall in my crafty cave started and would adore anything off my "wordy bits" pinterest board.
Crafty Cave Door Sign- Along the lines of "KEEP OUT" or Batman and Robin "To the crafty cave old chum"
Stitch Markers for Knitting/Crochet
Hair Scarves- I have super curly red hair (I kid you not, I cried when I saw the first trailer for "Brave". Merida and I share hair  Grin) and I've been doing regular bandana's for years to wrangle it in. Now I am crazy sick of that pattern and need to stretch my horizons.
Medium Size coffee mug with any kind of fun art on it. see above for my likes.
Fingerless Gloves- I wear the heck out of these things all winter. I like to put the stretchy full gloves under them for layering.
perhaps somekind of superhero ensignia on them?

DMC Floss (any color), small retractable tape measure, ceramic marker (black)

For the kiddos:
Long Sleeve Stenciled TShirts with Super Mario or any Nerd reference
Specifics: Girl 6yrs size 6 small/med in the tweenbop section. She loves the princesses and lego ninjago or any type of lego minifig
               Boy 3yrs size 3T. He has fallen in love with Luigi for some unknown reason. Also loves lego ninjago and all lego manifestations.
I think that's it. I'm super easy to please and if you have any questions please PM me.
Thank you in advance for choosing me.

Hello hello! I am a geeky gal who loves to craft, primarily sewing but also embroidery, knitting, woodworking, and electronics. I work for the local university, managing a pharmacy learning center. Its grand work I love my job!  And I love life its NEVER boring, theres always something to do! I live in a little fishermans cottage on the bluffs above Puget Sound.  I love my little old Nordic neighborhood (settled mainly by Nordic people working in the fishing, lumber and shingle industries). My cat Phoebe is a floofy 16 year old that I adopted at a few years ago from a friend, as her living situation had grown bad. She is the loviest, sweetest, most adorable floofy kitty ever. Music, reading and crafting are huge in my life. I am a HUGE fan of P.G. Wodehouse, Angela Thirkell, Patrick O'Brian, and Arthur Ransome.

Themes: nature, geeky/techy/math, water, outer space / planets, stars, animals (horses, draft horses, draft mules, cats, crows, birds, cows/oxen, buffalo, porcupines, red pandas, foxes, orcas Orcas ORCAS!!!), mountains, clouds, lighthouses, salmon, treeeeeeees, books, tea, 1920s, ferries (no, not fairies, ferries! WA State ferries to be exact!), sunsets and sunrises, lovely flowers, our Moon (my dad has experiments on the Moon! I feel a very personal connection to our lovely orbiting companion), kelp, waves, raindrops (I live in Seattle, after all!), oranges, birds birds birds. Old tractors. Farming. Trains. Planes. Automobiles.  Wink Jazz, bluegrass, classical, early music, blues, piano, harp..... gosh, so much!

No allergies but no smokers please if possible.

Crafted items:
   SURPRISE ME!  Riff off of something on my faves/pins/etc, have fun!
   Re-usable Shopping bags (Seattle now has a plastic bag ban so all shopping is done with our own bags! Great to have a lot so you can rotate out and make sure you always have some in the car while others are being washed)
   Other bags of any kind: zip, drawstring, fold-over, clutch, etc.
   Reusable lunch bag set. I eat lunch at my desk, away from any kitchens etc, so a placemat & lunch bag are a must! I keep meaning to make myself more than one so its not always a rush to get it washed every single evening (cuz I eat messy sometimes!). Bigger is better than smaller, bag-wise, as I bring a lot of re-heat stuff and those containers a bulky!
   Knitting project bags. I always have 4 or 5 WIPs at one time so appreciate project bags!
   Knitting needle case/wrap/bag. Straight and/or circular and/or dpns.
   Thread-catcher to hang off of my sewing table.
   Mug rugs
   Case for my Kindle Fire (I have a lovely monster case from the Monster Pouch swap but I like to trade off!)
   Fabric/felt/metal/wood bowls, boxes, containers etc.
   Fabric-covered buttons
   Handmade buttons
   Teapot cozy (the big tent kind, not the kind that wrap around the pot - I have a lot of oddly shaped pots!)
   Coffee cup sleeves I get tea, not coffee, and the water from espresso carts here is always SO HOT I burn my hands! (precious delicate princess-and-the-pea hands, my friends tease)  So some good thick sleeves would be great. The coffee cart is just down the hall at work so its easy for me to grab a sleeve and go get a hot water refill!
   Tea towels! I love all kinds of kitchen towels but especially tea towels / dish towels, either with embroidery or cute fabric trim. My kitchen is cream and green but really any color combination works, my whole house is a mishmash of colors!
   Cat beds. Phoebe Cat loves to curl up in a ball and sleep in so many different spots in the house, would love some very basic little round cat beds to put in her favorite spots.
   Cat toys. Phoebe loves ribbons ropes and other dangly things, plus lurvs catnip and things she can rabbit-kick while on the nip high. Or catnip mice to carry around. (I have GOBS of organic catnip, so feel free to leave it for me to put in the catnip and close it up!)
   Pin cushions. I like pincushions that have low center of gravity, no glass/porcelain etc can you tell my cat LOVES pin cushions and pushing them off my sewing table?! LOL  Also like them rather thick, and without hard items on the top surface a lot of time I return pins and needles to the pin cushion without looking, so I dont want buttons in the way Ive broken too many needles that way already! Heh. Examples in my Etsy faves.
   Needlecase/needlebooks: I love these, love having one set up for each embroidery project in progress! No trouble finding just the right needle then!
   Fingerless gloves/mitts. My little cottage by the water gets COLD in the winter! These help me knit or type in the winter.
   Prints/paintings: I love little prints or paintings. Nothing big, nothing fancy lots of ACEO examples in my Etsy faves.
   Fridge magnets with STRONG magnets.
   Scarves!!!!!!  I love scarves. I wear a long black coat in the winter and I like to brighten it up with colorful scarves. Not TOO colorful tho for example, screaming neon not so much. But a bright color, that's fine.
   Brooches I wear these on my long black coat, or on the sweater I wear at work (my office is known as The Tundra, its so cold in here year round! I love it though!).
   Earrings I love bird earrings, colorful earrings, whimsical, dangly (but not TOO long, they get caught in my scarves in the winter, hehe!), silver. sparkly crystals. Or I've been wanting to recreate these dusty green grape bunch earrings I had once but have never found again.
   Bookmarks paper, metal, fabric, knit/crochet, embroidered, you name it! I have about 20 books being read at once so need a LOT of bookmarks!
   Good mugs for tea
- teabag dish (where you put your used tea bag after your tea is steeped enough)

Craft supplies:
   Fabric any kind! Fat quarters, scraps, remnants, etc always find a use in my house. Content of fabric doesnt matter from cotton to slinky luxe stuff to suede, Ill find a use for it!
   Sewing thread
   FELT! I love felt with any amount of wool in it.
   Embroidery needles, embroidery thread, embroidery hoops etc
   Pins of any kind
   Buttons buttons buttons! I love opening up my button tin and seeing all the colors and picking out new favorites. 
   Ribbons, trims, etc
