Ongoing wish swap round 93

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 90

~~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! 7 days late and Neg feedback could be left for you unitl partner receives~
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!!!

Last swapper of round 92 is the one and only GAMEMOM42

Here is a copy of her last wishlist. You can always go to the last swap to see links too Cheesy

My name is Teresa.  I live in Ga. with my wonderful husband of 32 years.  I have two daughters (24 and 26), both of whom I love to brag about because they are amazing women.  I  also have a sweet stepson (34) and I 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 three 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  any of my Crafty Wishes Pinterest boards!  There are a few things on those boards 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 ( I have divided these into three boards: yarn crafts, fabric crafts, and this and that crafts)
   *  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.   

Thank you cards in a bee theme or a kid friendly theme.  I would love it if the envelopes could have a little matching something on them.

Hooplas in any of these themes:

*Christmas ornaments (prefer a set of smalls over one large)
*wildflowers (especially Queen Anne's lace or thistle)

A small jar of whimsies pin cushion, the more whimsical the better (example on my "Pincushions I Want" board)

Goldfish cracker earrings  ( need to be lightweight but I can handle any metal for the fishhooks)

A Billy Goats Gruff playset! it could be in any medium but would need to be sturdy enough to handle a class of 5 yr. old children

A wallet and/or card holder in a 70's floral or a purple, green, or orange paisley print

An ironing board cover with insulbrite inside (if anyone claims me for this I'll create a Pinterest board of fabrics that would work in my craft room so that they can use something similar)

A sewing machine mat with pockets (if anyone claims for this I'll create that "craft room fabrics" board for inspiration)

Mismatched striped knitted socks for a size 51/2 woman's foot!

Crocheted or Knitted baby anything: hats, booties, shoes, toys... there are good examples on my Pinterest and wist of the sort of things I like.  The babies that I'm collecting these for aren't even on the way yet so anything goes.

Baby Onesies:  Any size is fine.  There are examples of my Pinterest boards of what I like.

A small quilted camera case (I have a Nikon CoolPix) in a fun print (think cats, mushrooms, multi colored polka dots, or if you really want to make me happy a vintage 70's floral)

Teesha Moore style patches in any of these themes
*bees/hives/honey (no bears!)
*traditional fairy tales


 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. Texscrapper sent me a brand new Dremel engraver but I'm still wanting the drill!).

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) (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
dog toys/treats (for a small dog)
gluten free treats and snacks

Thank you so much for claiming me!

I claim deathbeforedishes for some stay put towels and some fabric scraps. (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!
