Hello! My name is Mandy! I am a married, pagan, 34 year old, who lives in mid-Michigan! No children yet but I have a couple dogs and a few cats (but I also provide food to all the neighborhood cats  Tongue !) I work evenings at a plastic injection molding factory that makes auto components. No allergies! I love trees, bold colors, witchy stuff, sparkly stuff, hobbits, fairies, elves, gnomes, foxes, buttons, beads, tie-die, batik, books, movies, music....see my profile for more specifics.

*My Pinterest www.pinterest.com/mandyshep
I would love anything Pinterest inspired! The boards (Projects to try, my projects, funny and true, Cute!, ecards) are really just for me but the rest are up for grabs! If you see an item but want to make it differently...just go with it!

*T-shirts/sweatshirts/hoodies would be awesome for myself or my hubby! (PM me for sizes lol) I love stenciled, embroidered, painted, tie-die, bleach pen, iron-ons..whichever method! There are lots of ideas on my Pinterest for themes!

*Wall art, art quilts, hoops, door wreaths or ATCs!

*Altered books or journals. Also, I have a 3 ring binder that I am using as a Book of Shadows so any pages that are standard paper size would work. I would love any artwork, spells, crystal or herb info, deity info...anything pagan related. I have page protectors so those are not necessary Smiley

*Slippers about size 8-9 in women's. Any color or pattern. Or knitted or crotched socks. I live in a drafty old house so these are always useful in the colder weather! OR if anyone can make some heavy socks for my hubby that would be awesome too! Size 11-ish in men's. Neutral colors for him please lol!

*A nice set of holiday cards (non-religious).

*Address labels (please pm for info).

*A simple apron that goes over my head and ties in back. I make a mess when I bake so no fancy material needed Wink

*A purse with a long strap! I love changing up my handbags!

*I am always looking for different cookie cutters! Any size but the more random the shape the better lol! (I just purchased a set of Michigan shaped cookie cutters as an example.)

*Tree ornaments! Medium or Large Christmas ornaments or mini ornaments for other holidays!

*I LOVE handmade soaps and lotions! Any kind will do Wink

*Any sort of carved stamps or stencils.


*Tea/hot cocoa mixes.

*Any baking mixes (like in a jar).

*Any specialty beads or buttons.

*I want to start making mosaics so any glass/mirror/tile/ceramic pieces would be awesome!

*Any fun fabric remnents.

*Any sort of molds or cutters for clay (can be pre-used).

*Medium or Large sized paper punches.

*Textured or specialty papers.

*Ink/stamp pads.

I am easygoing and love fun things!!! Thank you for considering my list!

Hi there, Im Susan & I live in Hawaii. I have 2 young girls, a husby of many years & no pets. I have no allergies but they do so be sure whatever you send is clean of smoke and pet hair/dander at the time of sending. I work at a hospital, go to college, have mommy/wife duties, and of course I squeeze in the art/crafting. I majored in Fine Arts, and for my next career, I want to be a nurse (Su, RN!). 

I like to:   Read, work with clay, sew, make wire-work jewelry, craft with the kids, journal, write, sketch, paint, make dolls, cook, garden, crochet, knit, spin (drop spindle & kick spindle), watch DIY home & garden & cooking shows.

Colors I like:   Garnet, silver, Blues and earthy colors (dark brown/green/rust). Also just discovered I like contrasting colors together (like forest green or purple/silver, aqua,teal or cobalt blue/tangerine or coral, chocolate/lime green, sky blue/deep red), and color gradients (ombre).

Patterns I like:   swirls, paisley, abstract florals/vines

Other:   Pls. no violence, nudity, scariness etc. basically nothing young girls should see.

Hello everyone, I am Lilibet and I'm 26. I live in Belgium which might prove a bit of a challenge to send to  Wink. No worries, I'm more than happy with flat packages and simple things. Nothing big, so you don't have to spend to much money on shipping.
I'm a teacher, still living at home, with my parents and little sister. We live in a pyramid shaped house, and have two cats.

Of course, I have a Pinterest page, which you may browse to your own liking. I tried to organise the boards as much as I can, but it's not always easy. I pin a lot of stuff that I like, but don't but it on the 'Items I'd love to receive in a swap' board. Oh well, I know you'll do well!


Likes: Blackmore's Night (music)
Brave (the movie)
Celtic stuff (the knots, the knots...)
Embroidery (Hoops!)
English magazines
Flowery prints (like Jane Austen and consorts)
Gothic stuff (but not the spiders)
Harry Potter (just everything, not real favourites)
Hello Kitty (just Hello Kitty, not the kawai stuff)
Historical fashion (From the Middle Ages until the Roaring Twenties)
Hunger Games
Irish dance (Anything to do with this, and you make me and my sister very happy!)
Jane Austen (Her books but also all the adaptations)
Listening to music
Lord of the Rings (very soft spot for Hobbits)
Nintendo DS (avid gamer)
Nightwish (metal chick, but Nightwish is my favourite)
Outlander series, by Diane Gabaldon (oh, to have my own Jamie)
Pagan (I'm a Witch)
Photography (I have a DSLR and I love it. Makes the best pictures in the world)
Playmobil (we collect some, and we visit the theme park now and then. Wonderful stuff)
Puppets (I'd love to receive a puppet, but I realise it's such a huge thing... An Irish dancer, an Irish princess,... *dreams away*)
Reading (Books, books, books!!)
Stationery (huge weak spot of mine. Paper, dummy books, pens, ink... Makes me more than happy)
Stencils (I love to stencil, and I'd love to learn more about it)
Teaching (I'm an English and Dutch teacher, and I love my job)
The Sims (favourite game, by far)
Twilight (guilty pleasure)
Writing (now and then, I love to write, in those dummy books, mentioned before Tongue)

I love crochet, but I yet have to try out amigurimi. It's so intimidating! And I struggle with working in a round... *sigh* As you can on my Pinterest boards, I have several cute items pinned. It would be great to receive a crocheted nativity scene. Or, as that is a bit much, maybe just one item, and I'm just forced to learn Wink.

Home sweet Home
This sort of goes together with the embroidery part a bit later on, but still. I love to decorate my place, and I really want to start my own hoopla wall. I also love drawings and paintings with historical fashion on it.

Not specifically mentioned in my likes, but hey, I'm a girl, and I just love jewelry. I'm not overly allergic to any kind of metal, so you can freewheel, should you wish to. I just like the more detailed and refined stuff. I prefer a simple necklace with one or two items attached over a chunk of metal around the neck anytime. Irish dance jewelry is not so big, so if you're able to do this, wohoo!
No blingbling though...

One link: http://pinterest.com/pin/55239532898997622/
I fell in love with them (yes, another soft spot, fingerless gloves) and I had them pinned for ages. They don't need to be the exact same colour, absolutely not. I love purple, red and green. But, again, let those creative juices flow!

Need I say more, HOOPLA! I've been dying to receive one ever since I saw them on Craftster. I have a few pinned, but I'm sure that you'll find something to your liking in my likes  Grin. I also love many of the items on Urban Threads.

Paper crafts
I admire those journals, and bookbinding things. Too difficult for me... But maybe you can help me along? I'd love to make an altered journal one day, and got two books set apart for that. Maybe you can show me how? Plus, I do love scrapbook paper. Too much... But it's so pretty and shiny and aaaah!

Wow, just wow... Ever since I discovered this craft, I am in complete awe. I have a quilting package, ancient, but I'm unable to start it. It's a kit, so maybe one day... No, seriously, I admire this craft so much. Even if you just make me a quilted mug rug, I will be over the moon. It's one of those crafts that I'd love to learn, but I just know that I'll mess up.

It's already on the like list, and I continue to sing their praise, but oh, how I love those puppets. They are so pretty!

I dream big, but do not let that scare you, please! I'm here to help you redeem that negative, and you can already put a smile on my face with something that you made with lots of love. You can always PM me and ask for more info, or just tell me what you want to do and we'll see what we can agree on.

Happy crafting!

For my son:
My son will be 12 on October 31(Halloween). I gave him 2 rats as an early birthday present and he is very happy with them. He also enjoys playing his didgeridoo and guitar at the festivals.

He would like anything pirate, bug, dragons, or medieval related. He has been talking lately about wanting to learn how to read Runes and spin pios.

OK, so I am a little late to the party, but I am going to throw this up here anyway.  Grin

Hi everyone!!

My name is Karri & I currently reside in Las Vegas. That changes shortly as I will be moving to fabulous Ohio after 15 years in the desert. Its a long story, but feel free to ask. I dont mind sharing. I dont have any pets as the ex took the wiener. Im not quite 40, have no kids, but am in a relationship with an awesome guy that has two grown (20 & 22) children.
Anything, and I mean ANYTHING, on my Pinterest is fair game & I love surprises: http://pinterest.com/vegaszombie/

Christmas stuff:
Aprons for two boys (10 & 11). They love cooking & mom is always complaining they fight over the one apron in the house.
Apron for my mom: Shes a lot like me & likes things like skeletons/skulls, Misfits, Type O Negative, Rob Zombie you get the idea.
Stocking for the guy
Two smaller stockings for a 20-year old male & a 22 year-old female. I have no clue what to do for them.

Much Needed Things for Me:
Scarf or 12 (ha ha) see list below for themes and colors and whatnot
Socks knitted or crocheted
Hats knitted or crocheted. I am not picky, but I really like the earflap variety for maximum effect. Think the Jayne hat (which I own).

Just stuff I like:
Stamped latitude bracelet or ring (yes, I know that is a huge request) - 36 7' 6.2" N  115 10' 17.9" W
Purses All shapes, sizes and colors
Sock Monkey
Hoopla/frames cross stitch

Fabric in yard or larger pieces
T-shirts condition isnt important as long as the graphic is intact
Snaps & closures

Colors & Themes:
Zombies the more cute the better
Unicorns & Monkeys
Dia De Los Muertos
Colors: purple, green, pink, blue, Mardi Gras (purple, green & gold), orange, glitter (thats a color right?!)
Bands: Foo Fighters, Social Distortion, Toadies, Misfits, Rob Zombie and/or White Zombie

Always looking for personal swaps!

Hi I'm Emma hailing from Ann Arbor MI. I have recently graduated from college with a BA in Art! and have started my own crafty business on etsy. I am addicted to awesome TV programming while I craft, and love random weird things. I'm not a huge fan of overly cutesy-girly things. No allergies to worry about as well.

Thanks for choosing me if you decide to!


shawlette - I'm addicted to these, so pretty! I'd love one in a teal or black preferably. The Holden pattern is gorgeous but I do have a couple already in that style, but something similar would be awesome.

wall art - I am collecting art to fill my walls up. I'd love something 8x10 or bigger - artist choice as to the content and style. Check out my wist for an idea of my style

wallet - I lost mine which makes me sad. Simple is fine, as long as I can keep some cash, my credit card, and license in there.

a cover for my ipod touch (G4), in the style of an ipad cover where it can be flipped around to be a stand while you read.

a cover for my car steering wheel! Knitted, sewn, however you want. I can PM measurements.

stenciled (bleach or regular) or screenprinted shirt (please not the shirts sold in Michaels or Joanns, they're just not flattering on me, Target brands work best!) - would love it inspired by Alien the movie, whales, sharks, day of the dead, dinosaur bones


sewing thread, any colors

rotary cutter and blades (I don't own one so any good brand)

long sewing pins

Square edge squeegee for screen printing - length 8" - 10"

100% cotton fabric in solid colors or subtle patterning (I use it for screen printing projects)

Staz-on ink pads - black specifically, but other colors are welcome

E6000 glue

black embroidery floss

Hi, I'm Cindy from Madison, WI. I live with my wonderful husband, beautiful black cocker spaniel and 2 black cats. I've had two miscarriages this year- I consider myself to have a son and a daughter, unfortunately however they are not with us.  My main job is as a job coach for people with disabilities (BEST job ever!). I also work part time as a florist and teach a floral design class at the local tech college. I also volunteer at a place that teaches art to adults with disabilities. I stay rather busy. I like clean lines and don't like kawaii stuff. I really like useful things.

I am very allergic to lavender and eucalyptus. I also cannot wear sheep or rabbit wool.

Everything except "Stuff to make for other people" and "no, I'm not pregnant again" is fair game on my Pinterest.

My wishes:
- Mobiles. I have  a few of these pinned. No baby themes please.
- cross body style purses/messenger bags
- knitted grenade
- Bike riding skirt garter
- quilted bathmat- bright colors and terry cloth back
- sewn receipt organizer for my purse with at least 3 slots- with all my jobs I have a lot of receipts to keep track of!
- The Mighty Boosh, Bon Temps football (True Blood) or IT Crowd t-shirt. I wear and XXL in fitted women's shirts. (I can't stand the standard Jerzees shirts from Michaels!)
- Insulated lunch bag with a long strap. I often have my hands full while pushing wheelchairs- I need to be able to throw my lunch bag over my shoulder.
- Embroidered or screen printed gnome themed kitchen towels.
- Weekender bag- in an orange patterned fabric would be fabulous!

- t shirt yarn
- whimsy jars/ miniatures
- craft thread
- Pearlized 3/32 cotton for weaving- any colors
- new sharpie brush tip in black
- any lengths of any of the fabrics I've pinned.
- gnome vinyl decals

Gnomes (our kitchen theme)
Deer, bunnies, nature
Colors: orange, turquoise, brown, white, yellow, gray, black

Thanks in advance if you pick me!
