I am Wendy, 40mumblesomething, living outside of Chicago (USA) with my husband, 9 year old DD and one fuzzy grey Tinkerbell cat.  I work for
the health insurance industry right now doing computer stuff, but in the past, I did computer aided drug design.

No allergies to speak of, but would prefer not to get things that smell strongly of smoke or perfume.  I do wear earrings (pierced), and have never had a problem with any metal.

I like lots of different stuff.  I have collected cats and dragons my whole life.  I always "need" things that are cute.  For colors I like darker/stronger colors -- like gemstones -- emerald, ruby, amethyst and onyx (black).  I am not fond of blue or yellow as a main color, and I don't like things in pastel colors.  I don't generally like things that are gross, dead or gory.

My daughter is 9 years old, and has grown up with lots of homemade things, so a lot of this list will actually be for her.

1) Anything cat-themed.  I like cat jewelery, cat figures for my curio cabinet, cat pictures for my walls, cat stuffies.  I like my cats cute and mostly "natural" (no clothes or non-cat-like behavior).

2) Anything dragon.  I like "western" dragons (think knights and princesses), not the Asian-type snake like ones.  I prefer cute to fierce.  I would love one of the dragons like this.  (I would love the pattern for that dragon too!)  I love this boxThis quilt makes me go squee!  I could devote a whole wall to embroidered dragons like this, this or this.  A few dragon paintings would fit right in too.

3) My newest obsession is Monster High dolls.  My DD and I are collecting them and making stuff for them.  We would love any of the boy dolls, except Gloom Beach Jackson (we have him).  Previously loved is fine.  Elsbeth is all about animals, and is exceptionally obsessed with the Monster High pets, but they are hard to find in the stores.  Some monstery looking animals in the right scale would be treasured.  Clothes or shoes that fit the dolls would be great.  Small doll accessories are popular too.  We are not much into the other "stuff" (stickers, fake nails, clothes for the kids, etc.)

4) Elsbeth also loves "How to Train Your Dragon", especially Toothless.  She would love a stuffed version that she could sleep and play with.  I liked this one and both of these.

5) Cute monsters!  I watched the gallery for a couple of the monster swaps, and would have found a home for almost all of the cute ones!  I especially love some of the cuties by loveandasandwich.  A few other ideas could include: Cute keychains, stuffie/pillow mix ups, pictures (I would prefer something that could go on a wall), curio cabinet stuff or hooplas. I know that someone was making little fuzzy monster earrings for a while, but I can't find a picture right now.

6) A loaded charm bracelet would be fun!  I like a lot of the Harry Potter themed ones, and the fantasy themes.  Cats and dragons could be good!

7) A hoopla!  I have a wall of embroidery in my entryway.  Mostly cross stitch, but I would love to add some new variety!  I liked this  cat one.  I linked to a couple more in my dragon and monster sections.  I love some of the complicated-looking ones like this or this.  I find stumpwork fascinating.  This one took my breath away!  And this one makes me smile.

8 ) Artwork for my walls.  I love the idea here, but I have no idea what I would like to see.  I also love her tree triptychs too!

9) Tree of life pendant.  You have seen them.  With gold wire and green stones.  Maybe some pink accents?  I love the ones with the moons in the background too!

10) I love this felted unicorn  A cat or dragon on a similar scale would be great.

11) Chemistry based jewelery!  Here is DNA and here are some others.  Remind me of the old days.

12) Stuff for a dollhouse (in a 1 foot=1 inch scale).  Els and I built a dollhouse for her Calico Critter cat family a while ago.  "Stuff" for the house would be fun.  Furniture, tiny paintings, mini food would be fun.


1) I recently dipped my toe into making soap (the stuff with lye).  If you have some extra "fancy" oils or lye safe colors or scents hanging around taking up space, I would love to give them a try.  I am especially fond of fruit-like scents; raspberry, strawberry, orange, grapefruit, etc.  I am thinking of stuff like shea butter, mango butter, jojoba oil, and the colors that don't bleed or change over time.

2) I love beads.  All kinds, but would love some gold-toned charms, and quality glass or stone beads most.  Please, no plastic or seed beads -- I have lots of those already!

3) Patterns for dragons and cute cats.  (I can crochet and sew).

4) Whimsies!  I love tiny stuff!  Things for dollhouses are often in the jars that people swap around here.

5) I am looking for small hole punches in shapes that would pass for mini food items.  I would love a scalloped edge round shape about 1/4 inch that would make doll sized crackers.  I have a tiny (3/8 inch) dog bone, but would like one a little bit bigger -- up to about 1 inch in

Wow.  That was longer than I expected.  Thanks for reading this enormous post!

Obsessed with Monster High dolls lately.

About Me
35 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. Healing and healthy after major surgery October 5th last year. Engaged as of 12/25/11! Grin
  • My favorite colors are jewel tones (like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber) or earth tones (like greens/browns together).
  • My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy.
  • My favorite colors for shirts/clothes are browns, greens, purples, and both heather and charcoal greys.
  • I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together
  • I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.)
  • My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes.
  • My favorite flower is the Daffodil.
  • My favorite movie is Back to the Future
  • My favorite hobbies include: reading, photography and I love all things Disney!

I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.

-- DSLR Camera Strap or Strap cover I have some examples HERE
 -- Mircowave Bowl Potholder. OMG this is brilliant! (Would ultimately like 2; one for me and one for Love.)
 -- Sewn/Quilted Fabric Trivets You know, the flat heat-resistant pot holder type things you put between your pan and the counter? Examples: this or this or this or this or this. More examples in sewn pin board These are just examples. You can use other fabrics/colors that you think I'd like. (Browns/blues, fun fabrics, cute patterns, etc.) I have regular "glove" potholders for getting things into/out of oven, now I need FLAT, insulated ones.
 -- Reusable fabric produce bag This is great! I hate wasting a plastic bag for one or two apples.
 -- Sewing Surprise There are tons of sewn things on my pinterest as well!

Knitting & Crochet
-- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. There are some wisted here for inspiration. (And yes, thick ones for around the house are perfect too!)
 -- Crochet Parasol. It's so pretty! Can be rainbow, or tones of blues, or blues/browns, or purples or earthy (greens/browns) colors. I just love this idea in general!
 -- GORGOUS Knit Shrug. I love cables. I'm sure this is massively huge, but I love it so much I'm putting it on the list anyway. LOL
 -- Knit or Crochet Surprise Item - You can find more items HERE on my knit/crochet pin board.

Embellished Clothing (Dyed, Embroidered, Screenprinted, etc.)
INFO FOR ALL TEES: Fitted / "babydoll" styles only please! If Misses, size small. If Jr's size medium. I like jewel tones for shirts (emerald green, amethyst purple, turquoise, aqua) plus browns and greys best. Short sleeve or 3/4 sleeve. Scoop or V-neck best (but not so low I have to wear another shirt under it please!) I like Target's Mossimo shirts a lot but other brands are good too.

-- Decorated/Screnprinted/Stenciled/Bleach Pen/Embroidered/Batik/Dyed/Ombre Fitted T-Shirts Could be in many styles/colors based on my likes or shirt inspiration.
 -- Galaxy Shirt! I love this. I think either black tee, dark navy blue or dark purple tee is best for the base shirt color. I can't be around bleach (allergic to the vapors) so I can't make this for myself but I'd love someone to make one for me!!
 -- Bleach Pen Tees Could be in many styles/colors based on my likes or shirt inspiration.

Glass, Ceramics, Pottery, Etc.
-- Ceramic Sponge Holder I LOVE LOVE LOVE this. The idea is so useful and the glaze is beautiful!
 -- Ceramic Ramekin Bowls Like this or this. Could use some little bowls for dipping sauces, etc.
 -- Ceramic Oversized Soup Mug I've got several I love pinned here.
 -- Something Stained Glass I love stained glass. A little window decoration, a nightlight, a decorative piece - I think stained glass is so pretty. I have some pieces wisted here for inspiration.
 --  Ceramic/pottery/glass wish/surprise item Examples of glass items HERE and ceramic items HERE.

Hoopla, Embroidery, Needlework
-- "Damn it feels good to be a gangster" hoop like THIS or THIS. Too damned funny!!
 -- Phoenix Feather Hoopla. Love this in a red/orange/yellow color scheme!
 -- "M" Hoopla I love the font, the detail, everything about this example.
 -- Bat Hoopla like this. He's so cute! (And Halloween or not, I'd totally keep him around all year!)
 -- HOOPLA SURPRISE I've been pinning some so take a peek and see if you get inspired!

-- Anything Back to the Future Inspired It's seriously my favorite movie of all time. DeLorean time machine items, shirts with logos/slogans/products from the films, Doc or Marty things - I just love those films!!
 --  Anything with a phoenix. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items or phoenix pinned items as inspiration.
 -- SURPRISE ME! Look at my my pinterest or my amazon wishlist, my etsy favorites, the colors I like, my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like!

Craft Supplies
-- Cuttlebug / Sizzix / Sepllbinders embossing folders or dies for cutting! Just got a Cuttlebug and want a bunch!! I've got some favorites listed HERE. Used is fine!
 -- Gift Certificate to Amazon I know that sounds weird but I buy a lot of crafty supplies there; things I either can't find locally or I can get cheaper. Since it takes an order of $25 for free shipping, I often don't splurge, but there are things there I've been drooling over! Cheesy
  -- Gift Certificate to FireMountain Gems Available here. I recently put in a larger order, and got SO MUCH for my money. It's hard to buy in bulk but when I can, it's SO worth it. So if I could get some giftcards for them, I could combine them and make another big order and save a lot of money vs buying one thing here and there.
 -- Lampwork beads. Love. Wish I could make but I''m too scared of open flame. Cheesy
 -- Earring Findings I could use some fancier sterling and/or gold (plate/vermeil) ones, especially chandelier style like this or this or this or this or this, etc.

Thank you in advance for claiming me!  Grin

Hi!  My name is Alicia.  I live up in Fairbanks, Alaska (USA) with my holland lop rabbit.   I work doing maintenance as a day job and lots of craft stuff for fun.  I cross stitch, knit, hook rugs (not latch hook- the real hooking with wool), sew, leather working and fur sewing, and many other random craft things.  Pretty much the only thing I don't do is paper crafting.  I love Halloween stuff, pretty much everything other than zombies, but I have a particular adoration for werewolves. 

I'm minorly allergic to tobacco smoke, and fish.  (I can't imagine someone
sending me fish, but just in case...)

I really don't care for pink (other than on flamingos), or purple.  Same with kids' stuff, no kids in the picture and they are not happening.  I'm not really in to anime type art or crafts.  I'm also not really in to Asian themed patterns and stuff either.

Crafted items:
-Palm Tree crafts!  (Any sort, I have an obsession)
-Flamingo stuff
-Wolf stuff, wolves are awesome.
-Reheat-able hot pack (one of the ones with beans or whatever inside that you nuke in the microwave)
-Knitting needle/crochet hook holder for a whole mess of needles/hooks I have about a million and a half that need a home.  The roll up kind or foldable kind would be super awesome.
-Decorated needle cases to tame the piles of needles of various kinds that I have.
-Plushies or felties of just about anything.  I adore them, and making them. 
  (I'd even love new patterns for different animals!)
-Knit mittens, reds and black are awesome and would match my coats.
-Knit socks of whatever color.  Socks are a major love of mine.
-Funky yarns of any sort, I love getting new spun things.
-Recipes for different foods, desserts, etc (I collect them!)
-Stuff made out of wood, like bowls and things
-Anything metalworked
-Any bunny toys are welcomed!  He is a litter trained house rabbit so I'm always looking for something else to keep him busy.
-A really cool Kindle cover.  (I have the last generation with the 3G and mini keyboard thing NOT the touch screen)
-Chainmaille jewelry or random trinkets.  I love that stuff!

-Specialty threads for cross stitching
-Cross stitch patterns of rabbits, wolves, dragons -ie Euro style not Asian, golden retrievers, turtles, sharks, fish, etc  (Nothing super cutesie)
-Real fur scraps/old fur coats etc (seriously, I re-purpose old fur or make stuff out of new fur)
-Chainmaille rings of various colors think sized for making shirts more than jewlery
-Miniature things
-Curio Cabinets (or mini ones)
-Beading supplies for teeny tiny beads- Delicas or Toho.  I love new peyote stitch patterns.

Random Likes:
-Supernatural TV series
-Critters (Wolves, flamingos, rabbits, turtles, coyotes, sharks, fish, foxes...)
-Home canned preserves/foods/etc
-Bones TV Series
-House TV Series
-Subversive Cross Stitch (and things along those lines)
-Oldschool video games ie Mario, Sonic, Tetris, Duck Hunt, etc
-Medieval art or tapestry styled items.
-Native American crafts, or books- especially on legends.
-Teeny vases or boxes.  I LOVE cute boxes.

Feel free to PM with questions about anything.
Shipping to Alaska via USPS, does not cost more than someone living on one coast shipping to the opposite coast.  Flat rate priority boxes do cost the same to come up here as anywhere else.  Smiley

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

I love to craft, I sew, make jewellery, paint, altered art, stencil and am currently learning bookbinding, I mostly like functional things. I am a packrat and so there is a lot of clutter in my house if something is functional and beautiful then its a winner. Bedlinen, storage, hoodies,t-shirts etc

Any supplies related to paper crafting, sewing or jewellery, patchwork magazines related to these crafts.. a supply package would make me happy!

My name is Eva and Im from Germany. Im a 29-year old teacher at secondary school. Last year we moved to the city of Cologne in the West of Germany. In my free time I really enjoy sewing, stencilling and felting. At the moment I rather stick to sewing though. My mum gifted me a serger last year so Im trying my hand at sewing clothing. I like natural and bright colours (lavender, plum, cornflower blue, steel blue, fern green, sea green, bronze, brown, copper, saffron, amber, sunglow, tangerine, amaranth, cerise) and natural materials like wool or wood. Ever since I spent some time in Stockholm as aupair I have had a thing for Sweden and anything Swedish. Im allergic to cat hair!!!!


Slouchy knit hat in autumn colours (for me, rather dainty)

Knit infinity scarf (in autumn colours)

Striped knit socks (autumn-ish colours would be great!)

Bella mittens (cornflower or steel blue, fern or sea green, lavender or plum

Amigurumi Hobbes tiger (the one from the Calvin&Hobbes comics)

Nativitiy amigurumis (sheperds or the three wise men - Ive already got the holy family and two sheep. PM for size!)

Charm bracelets (antique brass, bronze or copper for the bracelet with any colourful charms)

Dangly vintage earrings (especially flowers, birds, owls etc. Had a nice pair of dangly bird earrings but lost one in classroom. I prefer antique brass or bronze but copper is also a nice choice. NO gold or silver coating please!)

Whimsical charm necklaces (silver, antique brass, bronze or copper - birds, leaves, flowers, trees or anything related to love or tea ☺)

Swedish Dala horse felt ornaments (in all different colours, just like these http://www.flickr.com/photos/lovarevolutionary/4848265428/in/set-72157623298095401)

Felt ornaments (holiday heart felt ornaments

Felt badges (Swedish horse, floral, trees, woodland, sheep, birds)
Placemats (a set of 4 would be great, embroidered with flowers, trees, stripes or dots, lime green, light blue, teal and/or violet)

Cloth Napkins (a set of 4 embroidered with eating related quotations would be fantastic. We've got a birch wood table so, lime green, violet or light blue napkins would be perfect. PM for more details like font or German quotations)

Handcarved rubber stamps (woodland, trees, leaves)

Scrapbook photo album for pictures of our autumn wedding (our colours were orange, red, brown and cream - pm me for an example of our invitation)

Screen print Christmas cards

Perpetual birthday calender (all my family and friends remember my birthday every year which is quite easy because its Christmas Eve but I always forget their birthdays. That has come to an end. I quite like this design: http://www.wists.com/Ewulotta/3b641ae1761bbde27f77e06e8b5e5711?offset=0 OR http://www.wists.com/Ewulotta/7938d6a6911816cb1c2e7ca0b4e3e53a?offset=0

Hi, I am Pixie. I am 40 something year old craftster who is raising my currently 4 year old granddaughter here in Southern California. I'd like to give the items to Alijah for Christmas. Things have been tight as I am sure for everyone else.

I am actually going to list themes instead of items and that way you can decide what you want to make, if you choose us.

For Alijah:
Monster High Doll
Hello Kitty
Curious George
Sponge Bob

Dr. Who
Harry Potter
World of Warcraft
Hello Kitty

Embroidery floss
Yarns (I crochet)
Buttons & whimsies (a little fetish of mine)

Thanks for looking and considering us. Smiley

Hey there, Im Kassie & Im a sahm/blogger at www.goinggreenwiththegrizls.com/ where I blog about my progress in becoming a greener mommy. My hubby, little girl, and I live in Idaho and we are expecting another little addition to our family in April. =)

My toddler needs some clothing in the next size up-All of these include tutorials, PM for sizing

I'm planning to do lots of books for her Christmas. I'd love to have you send your favorite children's book already wrapped & appropriate for a 2 year old. =)

Paci clipsNeed like half a dozen so I can have them for the new baby too.  http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286180604625/

Me- Okay I feel selfish for putting myself on here but it would be nice to get some things that I have some input on, ya know? Im 22, and Im a totally crunchy attached mommy yet my style is modern and classy

I also need some clothing badly. PM for sizing, I can alter if needed. =)

Ami Unicorns http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286180347691/ (Id love to end up with one for each little girl in the family. That being said, lets aim for 1 pink, 1 orange, 1 yellow, 1 lime green, 1 aqua, and 1 purple. With these, girls, they NEED to have different colors.) You could do the whole unicorn this colors or white with mane and tails of these colors, however youd like as long as they are visibly different from each other in the eyes of little girls ranging from 1-6. Lol.

Soy or beeswax candles for the women in the family --We are fond of warmer smells such as coffee, chocolate, apple pie, cinnamon, vanilla..

My SIL would die for this awesome HP apron!! http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286180346505/

Id love to have 3 sets of these (Maybe 2 for handles and 1 that can snap or Velcro around a lid handle in each set please!)!! One that coordinates with red, white & black, one that is reds/gold/blues, and one that is brown/green/aqua http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286180341012/

Anyone make homemade extracts?? Id love some as stocking stuffers!! http://pinterest.com/pin/242209286180232261/

Dcor- I really need some stuff to decorate with for the holidays. We have a tree with some ornaments, and thats it! We are doing red, pink, aqua, and some green. Think about the modern christmasy fabric you see in those colors at the store..

Large fabric storage baskets to store throw blankets and some smaller to store cloth diapers

Fire engine red spray paint for painting a wood table.
Also need bright white spray paint for said wood table.
Will also need a sealing coat/clear paint for said table. Will need to be wipeable for cleaning up messes since it's a dining table. =)

It's a start anyway!
