Hi all, and happy June!  

I participated in the Pinterest swap some months ago and had such a good experience that I've been dying to jump in again (but finances have prevented me until now).

I'm Julia, 41 from London, UK.  I live with my partner, one adult stepchild (of 3) and a cat (sadly our dog died recently  Embarrassed).  I am a knitter, novice crocheter, sewist, jewellery maker and random craftster.

My Pinterest boards can be found here: http://pinterest.com/juliapeculiar71

The best places to look are my wishlist and swap wishlist boards, but all my other craft boards are fair game.

Likes:  peacocks, lotus flowers, simple floral patterns, chocolate, tea, cats, beautiful poetry and prose.

Dislikes:  Nothing in particular.

I've seen one or two of you I can claim already.

Hi All! So excited for this swap after a loong absence from swapping:)

About Me: I'm Joanna, I'm 33 (gulp) and I'm currently living in NJ (double gulp). I have an incredible son named Jude who recently turned 2 and a crazy awesome husband I met at age 15. I'm currently running a small in home day care in our basement, running a stationery shop on etsy, baking up a storm, and piling up books in the stack I can never get to read. I love chocolate, the ocean and the beach, books, live music. I love turquoise and red, I collect recipe cards, old handkerchiefs, tea cups, ephemera, vintage scarves, cookbooks, old books, and vintage toys.

I love many styles, but nothing country or overly cutesy. I have tons of Pinterest boards as I am in lots of group boards for bloggers and etsy shops, so here are the ones for this swap.

Anything for my son's boards, but we already got an apple tree:

Stuff for me:)

Thanks in advance! Off to go peruse some of your boards now!

Girl! Stop asking "What's for dinner?" IGOTCHU! Hit me up! ~

Hi, I'm Cindy and I'm from Alberta, Canada.  I'm happily married and in my later 40s although I don't feel that old until I remember our two sons are in their 20s   Grin  I enjoy quilting, cross-stitch/embroidery, crochet and dabbling in a few other things.  I love bright colors except baby blue and mint green.  I only do family friendly so please keep that in mind.

My Pinterest is:  http://pinterest.com/cindyesau/

My boards that are open are Christmas, Crochet, Cross Stitch, Hoops and Snowmen I'd love to have.  If you are looking around and see something else you might like to make, please PM about it.

The older I get the more particular I am about the things I own so please try to stick as close as possible to the items shown on my boards.  You don't have to use the exact material but something similar would be great.

I would prefer no supplies as I have an abundance of what I use already.

Hi everyone; I'm Teresa from Georgia.  My husband of 32 years and I live on the land he was raised on a little north of Atlanta.  We share our little homestead with our pet cow Mary, two pygmy goats named Jack and Jill, and a donkey named Donkey.  There are also three old fat cats milling around and a teeny rescue dog of indeterminate breed who lives to make our lives brighter and make all the cats lives miserable.  In addition to our precious 4 legged babies, we have two grown daughters in their mid-20's (don't want to get me started about my amazing daughters; I am constantly in awe of them).  I also have a stepson who has made me Mimi to a precious 10 year girl.  For the past 2 1/2 years our lives have revolved around my husband's cancer diagnosis and treatment, but we are cancer free (the doctor is calling it a cure, not a remission!) and we are getting our lives back to normal day by day.  I have taught a young 5's class at a private preschool for 21 years and I love my job today as much as I did that first day (of course; I'm on summer break right now  Wink).

I have no actual allergies but I can't tolerate the smell of smoke or the smell of lavender.  

I have a massive Pinterest.  The boards you will find my biggest wishes on are :

Crafty Wishes: fabric
Crafty Wishes: this and that
Crafty Wishes: yarn

Other boards you may want to choose from are:

Bags, totes, purses, and pouches
Pincushions I Want

Feel free to choose from any of the "In My Spare Time" boards  (there are 3) because let's be honest, I'm never going to get around to making that stuff.

Please don't claim off any other boards without checking with me first.

Thanks so much for claiming me!

Hi, I'm Staci, from Winnipeg (Canada). I'm currently working on a life plan to get me back into the adult world, (job, moving out, etc) but until then writing, reading and crafting keeps me sane. My long distance girlfriend supports me in all of these things.


By Christmas my nephews will be a year, and 18 months. I have some bibs on my "other crafts" board, but my experience with kids is mostly 2-6, with some school age. So if you have parental/other experience with toddlers, and want to craft something that they'd want/need, lemme know and I'll pin stuff in that theme.

All boards are open except 'things I want to make'. If you don't generally make jewellry, look through necklaces anyway, I have a bunch of things in there that are embroidered or sewn or crocheted.

Supply packages are great too. I thought it was kind of crazy to pin a billion different types of ink and paper and stamps, so this is a blanket statement of all scrapbooking supplies except ribbon are loved.

I am totally fine with upcycled things. Actually, the one thing I want most is a twin duvet cover made from a queen flat sheet, and I love the sheets you can find at a thrift store. So feel free to recycle to your heart's content.

I'm not attached to your world, nothing heals, nothing grows... we used to love ourselves, we used to love one another.

life is no cabaret- we don't care what you say, we're inviting you anyway, you mf'ers, you'll sing someday!

Hey everybody! I have never done the Pinterest swap before so i am super excited to jump in. I usually only do the Ongoing Wish Swap, but it always seems to be the same people in there over and over, so i am excited to swap with a whole new batch of crafters! Hooray!
I am a 33yr old woman with the sense of humor of a 12yr old boy, and i like it that way.  I am from upstate New York, but i am currently living in the middle of nowhere Ohio running a small BBQ restaurant with my boyfriend of 12yrs. I do lots of embroidery so i am not really interested in receiving any, but i am game for anything else. These are the boards that are up for grabs-


If you need anymore info about me check out my profile, i've got plenty of info on there. Yay, i can't wait to try a new swap! Happy crafting!

please visit my etsy shop. i love it when people buy my crap!

Hi, I'm Kris from Iowa. I haven't crafted in awhile and I miss it.

Claiming me will be easy. I'm leaving it wide open. All my items will be donated to our Duck's Unlimited women's raffle. I want a wide variety of stuff so I figure i"ll branch out to you guys for that. It's in February...I'm planning ahead this year.  Smiley


I have a board that I started for Duck's Unlimited wishes, but it's a work in progress and like I said, I'm not particular. Probably stay away from clothing since it's restricted by sizes. Jewelry, housewares, art, bags, totes, bath and body, etc are all welcome. Duck theme or no duck theme. You can check out any of my boards. I have some great duck jewelry on there.


Thanks kris


Would love to do personal swaps - collection items for my Duck's Unlimited women's raffle
