Ongoing wish swap round 90

When you PM the orgs you MUST have the name of the swap and when you ship and receive  the claim name and date!!!
this is NOT an option a rule!
I.E.  Sally ----> Suzy for a pink pony saddle due out Jan 1[/color]This must be in ALL of your messages to the org!!

for this swap a MED By SIZE it is 2 OR more craft hours ( this is not cooking time, drying time, etc.. waiting around for something to set up.......it is craft time for the average crafter)

You must have 15 crafted items AND 15 supply items  (more the better chance of getting claimed quick)
Please bookmark all three threads, PM your partner ASAP to get the addy I don't want any messages I don't have and it is the deadline do you have it messages you have 2 weeks to have out the door and in that time can get the message to them and communicate![/b]

1.   Please make your wish list made and saved in your computer BEFORE you make any claims ( min of 15 med craft items and 15 supply items)
2.   You must pm partner as soon as you claim to say hello and get addy there are too many that have not been doing so and waiting until send outs and becoming later for not doing this from now on this will be noted in feedback!
3.   Bookmark all threads and communicate in them ( this is important!!
4.   FOC we have a special thread for us to talk about whatever we want to and feel the need to share with each other. Great fun there so think of being a FOC and join us!

6.   PM BOTH org and co org when you send and receive with the claim and the send by date in the message!
7.   Post pics within 5 days of receiving OR have the sender do so ( this will be noted in feedback if you do not!)
8.   From the time you claim you have 14 days to have out the door. If your 14th day is a holiday or on a day your postal service is not open you must send the day before that!
9.This is a high quality swap! Please check for loose threads, excess glue, make sure this is your BEST work we don't need anymore PM's about quality and would have to have to PM that there is an issue. You must send what you claim for ( we understand things happen like machines break etc..then you must still send on time and something else from the list that your partner wants!!

                             How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!

~~Try to imagine a chain.  The first link is the first person whose wish list is on page 1 (Person A) - that will be the craftster member who was the very last wish list from Ongoing Wish Swap 89

~~Now, we want to put another link in the chain.  People will read that list and see if there is something they want to/can make from the list.

~~Someone (Person B) will claim Person A for some item on their wish list.  They post a reply to the thread that says I claim Person A for [item].  This is my X claim (however many times they have picked someone for example, "this is my fourth wish, with one sent, and three received, (meaning that this is the fourth claim they've made, one is in transit to it's destination, and three of the items have been received by the people they previously claimed).  Also add your location, and any preferences or aversions I live in Wisconsin USA, I am a vegetarian, and I am allergic to wool.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!  This means you need to post who you are claiming and for what, how many claims you have made, including how many in transit and how many received, and your location/preferences/aversions. I.E. 4/1/1 = 4 claims-1 in transit-1 received by partner

Then comes the fun part!  After the introduction, Person B is the last link in the chain, and they post their wish list!!!  YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF FIFTEEN MED PER SECTION i.e. CRAFTS and SUPPLIES.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.

(Please have your list ready before making a claim, this swap moves very quickly!If not I will skip you and or remove your claim!!  Please include your country at the start of your wish list). Person B will also PM Person A to get her address so they can mail the item when it is finished.  

Along comes Person C, who claims Person B for something on their list and the chain is built, link by link.  (If Person C wanted to make Person B a purse AND a stuffie, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  Then they post their list, and so on.

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.

After you have made your claim, you need to PM that person for their address with in 24 hours!! It is up to you to make sure you do this DO NOT PM THE ORG FOR THIS INFO! You must get and keep safe until you ship!

Friends of Craftster are allowed UP TO 3 wishes at one time as per the orgs discretion, others are allowed 2 wishes again as per the org dis..  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish at a time until your crafts are received for this month.  
Do not choose over your given limit. If a  stall in the thread the orgs can claim again to get this moving again !

***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***

~~You must send Del. Comf with in the USA. NO exceptions within the USA!
~~If sending overseas as it takes so long we are changing the rule for INTERNATIONAL packages ONLY as soon as you ship AND SEND A PHOTO COPY /PIC of the shipping receipt ( or the tracking number from the receipt) you can claim again ONLY AFTER I HAVE THIS RECEIPT HOWEVER!!! You can send it to me in a message OR if cant get in that way you can EMAIL IT TO : [email protected]

YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS (14 days from the time you claim)TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR.This starts from the time you claim not the next day must be out the door BY the 14th day!
IF YOU DO NOT SEND A MEDIUM ITEM YOU CLAIMED FOR YOU WILL BE GETTING TEMP NEGATIVE FEEDBACK ( things happen so if you have to change items that is OK just let it be known!! ) until you do send the proper package
( the medium can be a couple small items etc as long as it adds up to a medium and that is what you claimed for we know things happen and some have to be changed but must be OK by the person claimed and on their list or wished in their Pinterest/wist )

Feedback will be given as soon as you have sent - received -posted pics but will be up to 2 weeks after the swap closed if you do not post pics and this will be noted and you might not get allowed back in the next round if you cant do this! Please take pics before you ship! This is a rule not an option!!!

    I'm Tandra from NW Pennsylvania.  I am a freelance writer & tutor, a crocheter for the last 14 years, and "Mommy" to an old cat, a psychotically-pubescent iguana, and a happy-go-lucky Lab mix.  My husband and I are in the process of getting our own place and hoping to have a human baby.  I love all things crafty and DIY -- if I'm not crocheting knit and sew a little, scrapbook, and garden in warm weather.

I have a big Pinterest and anything on it is fair game.  If you have any questions about my likes or dislikes, just message me!

I claim Ms. Awesome Pants for a supply package Smiley (1,0,0)

HI! I'm Summer from Texas. I am mom to 3 amazing boys 13, 8, & 8. We live on a ranch outside of Houston that has been in my DH's family for over 150 years. We raise and breed cattle and my sons show cattle all over the state of Texas.

Like most moms today I try to do everything! I work at a local church as the Director of Children's ministry, sit on the twins elementary school PTO, volunteer in scouts, and run around like a chicken with my head cut off. I enjoy scrapbooking, sewing, jewelry making, and various other hobbies. Hobby Lobby is my favorite store - I have memorized the layout, and frequent it often Smiley I am a diehard LSU fan - we bleed purple & gold in our home, and when we are home on a Saturday in the fall, you can be guaranteed that college football will be on the TV!

I am claiming Texscrapper for a fabric US Map - First Claim!

Hi!  My name is Shana and I am living in MI with my fluffy dog and two cats.  
I am kind of an all over the place crafter.  I tend to see things I like and then work backward as to how to create them myself. I am a huge fan of deco style vintage items and forest animals (I LOVE anything fox or owl related but other forest critters are great too).  I am huge beer and wine geek and I love to cook! You wont offend me with cursing or nudity Im actually a big fan of both J  I tend to decorate with white and pops of bright colors, but wear more autumn color palettes.  
I have a large pinterest that is always fair game (except the board entitled things Ive actually done)   http://pinterest.com/sminish/
Needless to say, not allergic to animals, and to quell anyones fears, I am constantly sweeping vacuuming and lint rolling everything in my life (I love my pets, but seriously, next time, hairless!)  I've bolded my big wishes
- Artwork my bedroom walls are bare! My pinterest is full of art ideas I love
- A nice full apron I am a size 12 and love kitschy and retro prints
- A knitted cowl like this:  http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885806682819/ or a cabled scarf.  I can knit.  Only knit, nothing fancy yet, so all my scarfs are pretty plain.
- I could use a nice new winter knitted hat as well think mens size though I have a big head!
- Throw pillows with forest animal themes (especially foxes and owls!) If you want to make only shams to save on shipping I have plenty of square thrown pillows to put them on
- Painted wooden Utensils like these I keep meaning to do this but havent and all my kitchen stuff is bright!: http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885806957718/
- A ring display I love this idea, but anything that I can showcase my collection with would be awesome  -http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885806826351/
- A sewing machine cover I have been coveting one like this forever, but I am open to creativity!http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885806378197/
- Cute bright garland for my sewing room like this idea, but it can be any shape : http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885806378521/
- Origami cranes I am working on circling my bedroom with origami cranes.  Its a process!  If you wanted to fold me some cranes I would be forever grateful!  I have been using the 6inch squares.
- Bracelets I always have an armful of bracelets and am always looking for more.  I have noticed if they are too chunky though, they end up in a pile on my desk when I am working on the computer at work.
- I just found out before Christmas that I got into Grad School at Michigan State (yay!).  So anything green and white or college related is exciting me right now Smiley
- I would love a cute something for my keys on my hall table.  I really like this : http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885806682819/
- Leg Warmers/Boot toppers.  I love the look, but as said above, my knitting skills arent there yet and Im not willing to sacrifice any sweaters just yet!  Greys or autumn type tones preferred
- Dog toys for Charlie he is a shepherd/collie mix, so good size, but he broke his jaw as a puppy so hes pretty gentle on his toys.  Anything that squeaks and he can throw around makes him happy!
- Hooplas!  Or any framed embroidery or cross stitch.  I have a whole pinterest board I love them.  I would DIE if someone could make me this one for work: http://pinterest.com/pin/246712885808817527/
- really pretty much anything inspired by my pinterest would excite me. I love creativity.  
- Buttons any kind, I have some button art I want to do, so feel free to clean out your stash
- Felt I can always use more felt!  Any color is fine, it will find a use.
- Thread of any color for my sewing machine.
-  cardstock and scrapbooking paper.
- Squeakers ( for dog toys, I just swap them into old toys and sew them into cheap thrift store stuffed animals)
- Old Maps!  I love to craft with them
- Google Eyes the glue on kind of any size I make art with them (and occasionally attach them to office supplies to make my desk job more entertaining)
- Paints acrylic are great, but if you have any glass or porcelain paints those would be greatly appreciated as well.
- Silk cord for bracelet making.  Silver gold beads etc would also be great.
- Embroidery hoops
- Embroidery/cross stitch patterns
- unique fabric - kitsch is awesome, also anything houndstooth or chevron patterned
- Wreath Forms
- poly clay and molds I really want to try this craft!
- Fabric Dye I like to redo old clothes 
- If you have an unusual craft you do and love that you want to send me a starter kit for I would probably love to learn it!  

extras: green and white teas, chocolate, and treats for the pets would not be turned down! I got a Keurig for Christmas that I am currently somewhat obsessed with, so if you do too and have spare pods laying around they would be appreciated Smiley

Whoo!  First claim for 2013!

I claim Shana82 for wooden painted utensils, dog toys and I'll add some buttons too!  

1 claimed
0 sent
0 received

Hello, we are located in the United States.  Im a homemaker, home school teacher and your average Step ford wife doing what she can to keep her hubby happy.  I enjoy baking, cooking, playing video games, crafting and reading.  I love 1950s house wife themes, I Love Lucy themes & Harry Potter/Hogwarts themes.  Colors I like are teal/chocolate brown, cream/tan, red/black/white, red/white, black/white.  My style consists of Twilight shirts, Harry Potter shirts, Knee socks in bright stripes or silly designs, distressed comfy jeans paired with a silly hoodies like batman or Nintendo themed ones with a mix of 1950s style dresses and I love lucy aprons.  I love Pugs, tattoos and mythological creatures.  Im 33% Big Bang theory geek mixed with 33% 1950s housewife and 33% tattooed &  book reading woman.  Which leaves 1% to your imagination.  J  Our house runs on honesty, love and loyalty to our family.  Nothing makes us happier then spending good wholesome quality time together at home playing card/video games, watching tv, relaxing and just enjoying each others company.  
As far as allergies go-Dear hubby has severe sinus issues.  But, as long as you dont send dust bunnies, pollen and other outdoor things thats okay.  Oh and things from cat friendly homes are okay, just dont send your actual cat-as that would be a problem.  Wink


1*Leg warmers:  Smokey grey color or tan-machine washable/dryer yarn.

2*Leg warmers:  Tan or cream color-machine washable/dryable yarn.

3*Leg warmers:  Would love these done with chocolate brown and tan stripes (wide stripes)-machine washable/dryable yarn.

4*Vintage style aprons.  The 3 in a row aprons or the one with cherries on it.  Love the style.  Theme wise-think 1950 color/style fabric.

5*Vintage apron.  The pictures in black and white, but the style is so adoreable.  Id love it in 1950 ish color/fabric.  So cute!

6*Circus apron-course, I would want it to be transformed into a full apron.  As the half aprons serve no purpose in protecting my shirt.

7*Always Necklace.  Prefer to be fairly short though-so it rest right on my collar bone area.  And the deer to be tiny.  As I dont like big jewelry pieces.

8*Realistic pug wall art like this.  But, with koi tattoo on back leg.  For other tattoos, perhaps dragon, gryffin?  

9*Realistic famous pug.  I would like something like this.  But have the Pug in pirate attire.  And have his face look a little more realistic and less like a cartoon.

10*Harry Potter pug wall art.  Love this concept.  I just prefer it to look a little more realistic.  Especially the owl-his back looks sorta goofy.

11*Pug and butterfly.  This is adoreable.  Course, I would want a fawn pug and a luna moth or a monarch butterfly.
12*Space ranger prints.  Course, mine would have to be a Pug in the rocket ship.

13*cook thieves-would be cute wall art.  Pugs instead of Bostons though

14*Agent F sweater!  Would love the pattern too, so I can make some as well.

15*knit cabled legwarmers.  In cream. Machine washable/dryable yarn only.

16*pirate apron

17*clock like this, but in black.

18*patchwork apron.  But would need a full bid added to it.  The half aprons just dont work for me, they dont cover my shirt.

19*Box pouches.  Would like one 10 for my dpns.  The other-long enough for pencils.  And maybe a small-ish one for stitch holders, cable holders and such.

20*Fimo clay Pug magnets for the refrigerator.  Please let them have strong magnets though.  Fawn pug and black pug-doesnt matter.

21*screen print shirt with pug on it, and says "Pugs not Drugs."  Mens small and crew neck type.

22*a pirate treasure map.  Go wild with this idea.  I only ask that it looks like a real old one.  Id like the frame it and hang it.

23*Custom bone shaped dog tag.  Thats says my dogs name on the front-perhaps with a little heart stamped.  and on the back have say ''if found call my mommy at'' and have my phone number on it.

24*Dinosaur dog pj for a Pug.  lime green and dark green or dark blue and light blue

25*Knit bunny hop slippers, the pattern is on knitty.  its the 'bunny hop slippers'  would like them in tan or cream or smokey grey.  Size small please.

26*knitting stitch markers with the numbers 0-9 on them. that way i can remember the row that im on.  2 sets would be super!

27*patchwork pot holders.  thick ones, i burned my hand badly this holiday time and thus the need to super thick ones.  colors wise perhaps red/black/white or teal/browns or....something kawaii.  Just nothing baby-ish

28*sewn table runner and 2 matching place mats.  creams/tans.  Size wise its for a regular sized coffee table and end table.  Patchwork, stripes, dont matter.  Just sturdy and dureable.

29*padded and lined zipper pouch-I have specific measurements, but its on the small side.  about the size of a book.  material and style wise, surprize me.  Id love anything related to pugs, pirates or 1950s, even patchwork but in colors i like.

30*a melted bottle spoon rest.

31*a yarn bowl.  would love a teal and black one.  or a white and teal.  Or a purple and black one.  

32*magic yarn ball!  I have a ton of ravelry patterns i would love, so i could send ya list of them.  

33*Hoodie-mens small.  zipper or no zipper, i only wish for it to be super soft and warm.  I am always cold!  Maybe a screen print or iron on design on it.  Im not too picky on the design, something themed like pugs, pirates, nintendo, texas, sock monkeys, harry potter.  Go wild.  Please no puffy paint, glitter or anything that will crack.

34*sorting hat

35*this little owl.  but grey with cream designs pattern

36*another cute owl.  would like in greys/creams and black.

37*chubby little owl.  would be cute in creams/grey/black

I claim redstar13 for an embroidered piece.  I'm thinking of something sugar skully if that suits you.   !

1st claim this round

My name is Teresa.  I live in Ga. with my wonderful husband of 32 years and our two grown daughters.  I have a grown stepson and am Mimi to a 16 year old boy and 10 year old girl.   We share our little homestead with a pet cow, mini donkey (he's something of a cute bully), two pygmy goats, and five cats.

I use swaps to collect OOAK gifts for my friends and family so my wist/pinterest reflect quite a variety of tastes.  Please read tags/notes carefully if you choose something on my wist or pinterest boards for color preferences, sizes, etc.  I am completely okay with you taking something  and making it in your favorite medium rather than the one pictured.

I really really want everything on my wist and pinterest boards, but please do not claim me for a surprise.  I would rather you claim for something specific in case there are size/color specifications that you would need to be aware of. Thanks!

I can't tolerate the smell of smoke or lavender


Anything off of my Crafty Wishes Pinterest board!  There are a few things on that board that definitely fall outside of the "medium" requirement so just ignore those.  Please do not claim me for a surprise; I would rather you choose something specific.  

Anything off of my wist; again, please no claims for a wisty surprise.

Anything off the following boards on my Pinterest (loving that Pinterest of mine!):

   *  Crafty Wishes
   *  Pincushions I want (exact or simply "inspired by")

   *  Bags, wallets, totes, and pouches

If you are inspired by any other board to make something for me, please run the idea by me first.  I am trying hard to stay involved in Craftster swaps while at the same time not bringing anything into my home that I don't truly truly want.  I watched my first episode of Hoarders recently and it scared me half to death.      

A beanie and/or scarf in Ravenclaw colors (blue and bronze, not blue and silver)  We don't like our scarves super long and fringe is not necessary)

A purse made from the buttercup pattern.  There is an example of the one my daughter has on my pinterest on the bags, wallets, totes, and pouches board (I got it in one of my first swaps) and she loves it so much that she has pretty much worn it out.  I would love one in a navy blue, but it would be fun to have red as well.

Anything Arsenal themed... really, anything! (scarf, pillow, duffle, standing grocery bag, valance for single window, visor, reusable snack bags or lunch bag, bookmarks, etched glasses, trinket dish/box, kindle cover, ....)

yoga pants in women's size 2.  Any color, any style

yoga skirt with folded waistband in women's size 2.  If you claim for this, I'll send you a length measurement.  Any color

cat tent, bed, or crinkle sack  in one of these themes: Arsenal (huge wish!), skulls, old school Star Wars, Ravenclaw

solid black scoodie in fleece with hood part lined in something silky so my hair won't get crazy.  I would want silky inside solid black as well

sz. 2 blue and white polka dot swirly skirt ( for a 5' tall woman) ( simple is great, doesn't need to be super swirly, just have a bit of swish in it) If you choose this, I can get you measurements.

sz. 51/2 mukluks with fake leather soles ( looking for a speed knitter ) (quilted tall slippers in a mukluk style with soles would be just as good!)

A little sock monkey fan pull. I've never seen one but would love to have one for my daughter.  I'm assuming it would be ceramic or maybe poly clay?  

A sock monkey.    My daughter has quite a collection but we would love more.  There are examples on my crafty wishes board on pinterest.  I don't think I have one on there, but I would adore one in traditional Christmas colors!

A set if six mesh reusable produce bags with drawstring closures.

A stained glass bee or bee hive to hang in my kitchen window

thank you cards in kid friendly themes or motifs ( I teach pre-k and always need thank you cards.  I prefer smaller ones so that I don't need to write so much on each one and I don't care for anything t.v. character related).

Wire earrings in swirls, knots, flowers.  I like silver but not the super shiny stuff.  Examples of earrings I like are on my wist and pinterest "I want that" boards.  I'm not allergic to any metals, I actually used to wear thumbtacks in my ears in middle school      

Cat toys filled with your homegrown and dried catnip.  My cats don't seem to love the store bought stuff but every time we get toys with homegrown in them, they fight over them.

 If you choose something off my wist, please pm me first and let's discuss it.  I still want most everything on there but most of it is there for gifts.  I would want to make sure the size/color/? was right for the intended giftee.  Thanks!


Anything off my "Crafty Supplies I Want" Pinterest board (there are some pretty big wishes on there, just ignore those unless you have a used/unloved Dremel you want to send my way).

Thread Heaven
silk embroidery floss ( I realize this is expensive so a teeny little package would be great!)
one of those needlework magnifiers that hang around the neck ( used is great)
tiny wooden embroidery hoops, these are getting hard to find
wooden embroidery hoops of any size/shape
Biggest Supply Wish wool felt ( scraps are fine, its for a penny rug) (I really want wool felt, not felted wool.. does that make sense?)
bias tape makers
sublime stitching transfers for hand embroidery ( monkey love, zombies, or vital organs) ( It's okay if you've used a couple of the patterns and just send me what you didn't use from the package)
transfer pens ( I love the ones with purple on one end and blue on the other, but any are fine)
buttons (esp. greens)
stabilizer for embroidery projects
Sharpies of any and every kind and color
fabric crayons ( a little used is fine)
fabric markers (new please)
yo-yo maker (I've been making them on my own for years, but I'm lazier than I used to be and I would love the ones that aren't circles)
fine lined pens and markers in assorted colors (the ones that are best for working in an art journal?)

your favorite recipe ( gluten free or veg. is a plus but not necessary.  We don't eat beef or pork but do sometimes eat chicken,turkey,and fish)
A photo ( hard copy please) of the courthouse in your town with town name on back.
vintage children's books (storybooks or school books)
Bunny Suicide anything
cat toys/treats
gluten free treats and snacks

Thank you so much for claiming me!
