My name is Ann and I live in Sweden with my husband Gustav. He's got his own board if you'd like to craft for him. If you love crafting for kids you can find stuff for my niece (Sally 2,5 years old) and nephew (Sam, born September 5th 2012) on the board named Sally/Sam. Geeky onesies for the baby might be fun?

I don't need exact copies unless the pin says so. Feel free to be inspired by any of my boards! Some pins are pinned because I want to make that item, but it usually says so in the description. They are sorted according to Annchen-logic, so I hope you'll be able to find your way. Wink I now have one board featuring items I've received in swaps, and one board with things I've made too. The board named colour/texture/scents should hopefully give ideas for colours and the like.


I've made a "flavour of the week" board. Never more than 10 pins (ok... 11), and I'd love to receive every one of them: http://pinterest.com/annchen82/flavour-of-the-week/ In case you don't feel like sifting through everything Tongue

I do pin some things that can be considered mature, but those have their own board so you shouldn't have to stumble on them if you don't want to. I've tried to put stuff that would get a mature warning if it was on craftster on that board.

Supplies are fine. Used or repurposed items/supplies are ok.

Allergy info: I have no allergies. Avoid strong scents if making for Gustav (he gets migraines that can be triggered by scents). If you're making baby stuff for Sally or my sisters family they need to be smoke/pet hair free (or washable so I can wash before giving them away).

Hi! I'm Lilly, and I started participating in the OPS last month. Smiley

I live in San Jos, Costa Rica, with my 6 yo daughter Camila (http://www.flickr.com/photos/lillyanka/8223909777/), and my two Dachshunds Fiona and Bruno (http://www.flickr.com/photos/lillyanka/8242510147/in/photostream). I love photography and reading, and work as a Web designer/developer. Craft-wise, all I do is knit (and quite well, if I say so myself), but I can't do it too often because I have Fibromyalgia and early Rheumatoid Arthritis (although I do knit as often as I can, because I love it so so so much). I'd love to sew, but alas, I have no idea how (yet, but I will learn someday). Regarding allergies, we don't have any (yay!).

As for my boards, they're all game, but especially the ones called "Craftiness" (this is where the things I want most are), "Chunches Chivas ", "A Song of Ice and Fire" and "Hogar". I have a thing right now for hand-carved stamps and pretty aprons (I like to cook... A lot), and I love love love the ASoIaF books. I'd also like a hoop based on one of the Subversive Cross Stitch kits I have pinned. But of course, you can draw inspiration from any board.

I would also love some handspun yarn! <3 I have some fiber waiting to be spinned into some pretty yarn, but because of my health (or lack thereof, har har) I can't spin it, so if anyone would like to spin some yarn for me (I could mail you the fiber) I'd be forever grateful!

Hi! Im Ash from Ontario, Canada. Ive been an apparel and footwear designer for many years now and am just about to start teaching at a university! I also do costume design in any other spare time I have. I live with my sweetheart (I call him OH-Other Half) who appreciates but is not craftily inclined himselfYET;)

Colors I like: black, saffron, mint green, greys. Reds and purples, generally bright colors. Vintage palettes are great although I generally stay away from light pinks or yellows which clash with my pale complexion. Right now love anything tentacles, foxes, things related to such geekery as adventure time, venture bros, studio ghibli, harry potter, doctor who. In general love fairytales, fables and horror.

I am 57 but pretty small size wise. If unsure, medium is usually safe. If you want any measurements at all, just PM me and I can give them to you! Im fine with upcycled materials, sustainability is an interest of mine and I love vintage styles!

I dont need duplicates of what Ive posted. If you feel inspired by a pin, use your imagination! For my boards, Id love stuff from any of these:
+WANT! (swap, etc)
+Want - Presents for Others [presents Id love to have made for my friends or family]
+Want - Ornaments [love receiving themed Christmas ornaments no matter what time of year it is]

And the fun stuff. Ive got a lot of allergies! Smoke, perfumes and synthetic scents, cats, gerbils, certain plants, moulds, certain metals (sterling silver or gold=okay). With the metals, it isnt severe and if I know something will be rubbing against me that I will react to I can put clear nail polish on it. I also have a bunch of food allergies such as derivatives of corn, wheat, dairy, mustard family, grapeseed oil, anything fermented. Dont let that scare you off please!

Hi all!  My name is Brieanna, and I'm addicted to Pinterest swaps! I'm 31.  And live in Saskatchewan Canada with my husband, 3 kids, 4 dogs, 1 cat and 2 fish.  As well working full time as a LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) on an Orthopedics ward.  And yes, I LOVE my job...Honestly.  lol  A little bit about my kids in case you want to craft for them.  My oldest is Audessa (dessadoll) and she is 12, she is my biodaughter.  Our little 2 are R (boy age 7) and J (girl age 5)  They are a first nations sibling set that we very recently adopted.  We took guardianship of the children from foster care in Feb 2012, and our adoption was granted October 12!!! Yeah!!!!  I will gladly send a picture of my gorgeous family to anyone that sends me a pm with their email address.  
My 3 children and I love to craft.  The little 2 more than my tween, but that is to be expected.  I like piddle around in many different areas, felt, needlefelting, sewing, embroidery, polymer clay, paper crafts, hair ties/bands,  I can crochet and knit, but not very well, so I love anything that someone will make for me.  And even though I may be able to make some of the things I pin, it doesn't mean I wouldn't appreciate if someone else did it for me to give me time to make another project    We do have 4 dogs (3 CKC Siberian Huskies, and 1 mini dachshund) as well as an orange and white very senior cat, and 2 siamese fighting fish.  I will do my best not to send copious amounts of their fur with the projects that I send out.  I have no allergies.

As for my boards.  They are all fair game.  The best bet is wishlist....but really, if you find it else where, and I pinned it, then its something I like and would love to have.   As for my boards...I will put an * by items that I receive in swaps as they come. (I'm hoping to start a pin board of things I have got from other craftsters.)

Hope this helps...Happy Crafting!

p.s. I will try to go through asap and put an asterix * by things I have already received.  But hey, if its something you really want to make me...go for it!

My name is Katherine, and I live in Montana, USA. I am allergic to seafood, pine and cats.
I am married to a super awesome guy, have a three year old daughter, a 6 year old mutt and a one year old beta. I work full time (plus) at a newspaper, and since my husband travels for work, I do a lot of stuff on my own. My free time is pretty much late at night when my little lady is in bed, so I tend to do projects in chunks. I like to paint, sew, crochet, spin (kind of), draw, make jewelry and cook.
When I am not crafting, I am probably sleeping or cleaning. Maybe I am reading, but that is the least likely activity. My husband wants to get into better overall health, so I am working on tweaking our diets and getting outside as a family more.

My pinterest is: http://pinterest.com/stellatoescuro/. The off limits boards are Kingsbury Acres, Little Lady, Devour, Charity and Supplies. I REALLY dont want supplies because I am about to start a wicked supply sort. But I will make an exception if anyone wants to offload any acrylic additives.  Smiley Also, anything you make doesn't have to be an exact recreation...inspired by works!
If you want to know more about me, feel free to ask because I love answering questions. You can also check out my blog: daydreamhouse.wordpress.com. I also have an old page for Craftster stalking: http://stellatoescuro.blogspot.com/.
Thanks in advance to anyone who picks me!

Hi everybody!  My name is Ginger.  I'm 30 years old (turning 31 this month!!) I just moved back down to San Diego, CA into my own place!  I just got divorced, and pretty much had to start over from scratch.  However, life is going GREAT now!  I'm currently studying art in college, and taking a few sustainable agriculture classes on the side.  I love to sew (machine), knit, and embroider/cross-stitch.  I also dabble a bit in paper crafts and polymer clay. I recently started making candles, and would like to get into soap-making sometime in the near future.  I LOVE gardening, though I can't do much living in a tiny apartment with no yard or patio...but I'm moving into a house in the spring, so I should be able to take this hobby up again!  My favorite colors are plum, teal, red, and green! I don't exactly like the color yellow unless its a small accent color.  I've been a vegetarian for years (no eggs though!) and I LOVE animals.  I adore cows (seriously, hugging cows is one of my favorite things ever!)  I have two beautiful siamese kitties and a betta fish who somehow manage to coexist peacefully.  I'm pretty big into Hinduism and love anything India-inspired.  I really enjoy receiving homemade canned goods (like jams or pickles as long as there aren't any animal products like gelatin them!), and bath/body products like soap, scrubs, etc.  The kitties are addicted to catnip, and could always use a few new toys also!  It's been FREEZING here in San Diego, so I've been on the hunt for a new cowl and fingerless mittens/wristwarmers (though I can only seem to find mitts that are too bulky and I have rather small hands).

Supplies are fine, as well as used/repurposed items.  I do have more than my fair share of craft supplies at the moment, but I'm a bit of a hoarder and I can never turn down more.  Smiley

http://www.pinterest.com/sinellia  all of my boards are fair game!  I don't have any severe allergies that would apply here.  Please check out the apartment dwelling board too!  I'm in the process of adding crafted stuff to there Cheesy

Thanks in advance if you pick me!  Happy crafting!

Hello! I'm amalgam and I live in Missouri. I'm living the single life in my little apartmart as I
try to declutter from the past 15 years of my life. I work for a government contractor,but I have a Bachelor's in Theatre and Video which I haven't gotten to use yet and I plan on trying my hand at accounting in the near future. In the meantime, I'm really trying to hurry up and figure out what I'm going to do with my life.

Here's the link to my Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/liko_2000
The only board off-limits is the Fitness Motivation board. You can either replicate something or use my boards as inspiration. I like bright colors, but please no pink. Neutrals are ok if they are being used for contrast. I don't really like country themes or overly cutesy. Please, no nudity, foul language, or creepy/gory stuff. Smiley

My Craftster profile gives a pretty good overview of my likes and dislikes. Unless it can be hanged on a wall or put on a couch or bed, I prefer things that are functional rather than just decorative (that whole decluttering my life thing:P). If you want to do supplies, I'm open to cotton fabric, scrap batting, thread, bias tape, and other sewing supplies and notions. I have no allergies.

If you need something clarified, feel free to PM me. Smiley

Hi fellow craftsers. I'm Jeanie. I live in sunny Florida. I'm an anime freak & a table top gaming nerd. I can't stop reading fantasy & paranormal romance books.  I love animals (I'm a lacto-ovo vegitarian) and currently live with 1 cat, 2 birds, & 3 dogs. I only work part time which sucks for money but is great for crafting time. ^.^' I'm not allergic to anything anyone would send in a package so no worries there. I haven't had a pinterest long so there's not a ton of stuff on it but I'm adding more and more pretty much daily. All boards are game & I'm ok with inspired items and upcycled mediums. I dabble in all kinds of crafts so crafting supplies are always welcome.

Loves: blue, black, silver, tan, purple, teal, aqua, maroon, gunmetal grey, roses,

Hates: PINK, orange, gold, busy/floral prints, gaudy jewelry,

Mehs: yellow, white, copper,

Feel free to ask questions. ^.^


(I'll be back to edit this later ^.^')

Hello everyone Smiley

My name is Koreen and I live near Niagara Falls, Ontario. **I have an American PO box for swapping with people in the USA**

I am mom to a giant boy who has just come to school at the university where I work.  My job is to provide "cultural activities" for students who have come to Canada to learn English & it suits my absolute love of learning about other cultures perfectly.

My current obsessions include playing roller derby (go Niagara Roller Girls!), all things crafty, spending time with family & friends, and relaxing with a good book or movie when I have some spare time. Which is a lot at the moment... I've just had surgery on my wrist and so am home for a few weeks... I've figured out how to crochet with this stupid cast, but probably shouldn't since the doc said not to use my hand...   Wink

I am allergic to dust, mold & cigarette smoke, but don't think that those things should really affect what I receive...  I don't have any pets at home, but often spend time/craft at my SO's house and he has a cat.

All boards on my pinterest are fair game and supplies are great   Boards that will probably be easiest to claim from are: "I want these things. Bad", "Decor Ideas", "Things I want to make (or have made) for me", "Crafty Supplies I need" and "Jewelry".

I love blues above all but like most colours except for pastels and neons.  I love bracelets, earrings & long necklaces and silver is my preferred metal...  Hand stamped charms are amazing, if you ask me. I love trees, words & quotes, birds, books, silver, retro/pin-up images...  There's really not much I don't love.

I guess that's enough about me for now!  Questions about sizing or specifics for projects are welcome

Have a great day everyone!
