Hey gang!
I'm Andrea from Texas. I'm pretty bookish and nerdy, and a big ole hippie in the bargain. All of my boards are open; if you enjoyed making it, I'll enjoy owning it!
As for colors, I like earth tones and jewel tones. I have a weird sense of humor- everything is funny and nothing is offensive. I'm telling you, feel free to make anything on any of my boards. Inspired by is totally fine.
Right now, we are working on redecorating the house, so the Houseness/Craft Command 1 board is great. I'm also getting back into spinning after a horrible accident involving hot process soap, so spindles and roving are always appreciated. But again, don't feel limited to just those boards.
Supply claims are also fine. Anything yarny or fibery would be excellent.
No real allergies, but cigarette smoke and I don't get along well. I have a dog, but I try to keep her away from crafty happenings.

Feel free to pm me if you need to!

Hello everyone! I am so amped! I'm such a Pinterest addict, so this is the perfect swap for me!

I'm Brandi, and I'm 23 years old and live in southern New Jersey. I have no allergies though I am sensitive to smoke. I have dogs and a cat, but they don't roll around in my crafty bits so I hope that is okay. I am an animal science major and have an affinity for medicine and anatomy. This pin http://pinterest.com/pin/281193570456884129/ is a good example of what I'm into. lol I also enjoy photography and I am knitter, crocheter, and spinner. I really enjoy the colors teal, navy, royal blue, deep purple, merlot. I am not a fan of pink, orange, yellow, neon green. Double check though, because my color preferences tend to change. Like I'm not a fan of yellow, but I like the pairing of yellow and navy.

My general Pinterest - http://pinterest.com/brandiknits
My swap board - http://pinterest.com/brandiknits/life-swaps/

I have a swap board to be more direct, but definitely check out my other boards! My craft boards definitely go more into detail on things I'd like to try which means I can't make what I would like to make. My swap board is still a bit barren, but I'm adding things all the time! Also, I don't have children so I would rather not be claimed for children claims unless it's on my photography | baby board. I would use those for props.

Also, I am the president of an animal-related club at my university and would like to do a craft sale or game to raise funds for a local shelter. Unfortunately, a no-kill shelter near us closed down to financial hardship and it just emphasized the need the shelters are in. Our school hosts a big shindig in April for clubs to present information, exhibit their talents or make money and I would love to sell at that time or some how use the things as game prizes for donating to the shelter. We are companion animal-related so anything with dogs, cats, small critters, reptiles, birds, horses, fish, etc is great!

If you are interested in helping us out, just say so and check out my inspiration board:

Supplies - I am not interested in supplies right now, though I am trying to get into sewing at the moment though I have no idea what I could even ask for. Maybe embroidery floss, because that is something I'd like to take a stab at. I will say that if you are not interested in crafting for my cause, then might I request a small donation for me to drop of at our shelter? Something like adult wet cat food, kitten wet food, hand soap, paper towels, or paper plates would be so greatly appreciated!

I look forward to swapping with y'all! And thanks so much if you claim me!

Hi! i am amanda from michigan!i am 30yrs old, i have three kids (10, 8, and 5 months) and a very nice hubby. i am undergoing a surgery soon so crafting bf that, and during since i will be reallly bored while stuck in bed! although it isnt on my boards yet, i also collect betty boop!

 i went through all my boards and tried to pin my ultimate favorite wishes on my pinterest wishlist.

 some would be farely easy as they involve putting image transfers onto canvas, or using small printed images for pendants.

 i looovvvveee poppits and truly that is my biggest wish ever. but if that is not an option i totally also love art dolls junkrjane, zombie stuff, laberinth and mirrormask are my favorite movies, and my favorite characters are the non traditionals, meaning usually not the main character. ie laberinth ones are luto, hoggle, THE GUY THAT GUY THAT GIVES ADVICE WITH THE BIRD HEAD, the guys that take off their heads and so on. my other boards for laberinth and mirrormask have inspiration shots. i have never done one of these before!
 I JUST UPDATED MY WISH BOARD! my favorite thing is the conjoined twins stuff. i will continue to look at stuff to add to my board. but i tried to put things that i really really have wanted. surprise me! if you can make something odd or scary, i would probably lovvvee it!!!!

here is the link http://pinterest.com/artista83/my-pinterest-wishlist-for-craftster/

i hope someone can make a wish come true for me as i also hope to grant some awsome wishes!!!!!!!

if no one can make any of the wishes i would be ok with these supplies:

any supplies that would be nice are various paintbrushes in size 1 1/2 inch and up (i alter these so a bunch would be cool)
those bubbles for making necklace portrait things, molds of faces or whatnot or creapy things for polymer clay, clear resin. DRAWING FLUID. Settings for cameos OVAL. can be polymer clay, plastic, metal, whatnot.
prints of my favorite pictures or images would be cool as i do not own a printer! (some in necklace pendant size and other sizes would be awsome! pendant settings for cameos. handmade stamps of creepy stuff like zombies, conjoined twins, etc, or ones you want to rid of that you bought bf are cool Wink if it isnt on my pinterest, but it is wierd, scary, or oddities like, i would probably like it.

only one thing. i am allergic to nickel and most metals except hypo allergenic or surgical stainless steel. it doesnt matter if it is a pendant that can be any metal or whatnot. but i can not have metal clasp anything and prefer just tied cord or something of the like for clasps. i would be most happy just to get some pendants instead of full on necklaces since printing and resin or bubble stickers are super quick!

i plan on helping peoples wishes come true that want handpainted, hand drawn, or sculpted things. things i love the most but can not do are poppits and artdolls (stuffed kinds). did i mention i would dieeeee for a zombie poppit?Huh

i do not mind if you have cats, smoke cigarretts or whatnot.

and i have one question? when you claim someone, how do you do it and where do you post it?Huh?

thank you sooo much for anyone that chooses me! i hope it is a fun experience to do something "different"

big huggles and lots of squeeeeeees! (Artista83)

oh, i also pinned some interesting altered paintbrushes to give some ideas of interesting ideas of other dodads i collect
please see my pinterest wishlist board, and can also from my poppits artdolls board.

Hey everybody! It's only my second time doing the Pinterest swap 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 and there's sooo many rules! 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-


Some of these boards may not have a ton of makeable things, but will give you a good idea of what i like/my style anyway.
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!

Hi everyone, my name is Tammy, I am 30-something LOL, I live in Macon, GA which is a little town 100 miles south of Atlanta.  I am mainly a jewelry designer, hair bow designer and graphic artist but I do general crafting too.  I love mixed media collage wall art, that's kinda my newest adventure.  Some of you guys know me and have heard my story so if you have feel free to fast forward...back on Oct 30, 2012 I lost my dear husband Brandy at the age of 40 to a massive stroke.  I spent that night at my moms to be awakened by a call from a Fulton County Fire Investigator that the home Brandy and I lived in had burned to the ground in an electrical fire.  I had a huge collection of handmade items I'd collected in swaps and trades and purchased over the years.  I'm trying to slowly build some of that back up.  I really want things you cannot just go out and buy.  I need a little bit of everything.  I love handmade accessories (hats, scarves, gloves, purses, etc...), art, blankets and throws, clothes (just lost 25 lbs YAY), etc...  I adore toys and stuff, I'm trying my best to keep my list practical but I'm a sucker for a stuffed moose doll.  I LOVE hockey, mooses, Harry Potter, Hannibal, dragonflys, Buddahs, pirates, Xmas ornaments (This is huge for me, I collected handmade ornaments, we'd collected 100+ and lost them all in the fire), and I love general geekery (comics, movies, vampires, etc...).  I am allergic to smoke and dogs

Here's my Pinterest link: http://pinterest.com/tammystopher
All boards are fair game.  Just message me with any questions or if you have any questions about stuff I can make for you. 

Oh as far as supplies go I'm always interested in ribbon and jewelry making supplies :-)

my name is essie, and i live in melbourne, australia.
i have an 18 month old son named arthur (we call him arty), and a beautiful partner called sara-jane.

i love embroidery, quilting, gardening, reading, baking, & playing games (board games, and i've recently ventured into the world of dungeons and dragons).

my pinterest link is here: http://pinterest.com/penelopewaits/boards/

my preferred boards would be:
  • crochet and lace
  • wearable (though i realise many things on that board are not craftable)
  • lovely homes and things to put in them
  • stationery and papercraft
  • quilts fabric and patchwork (obviously i'm not asking for a quilt - there are other things on there Smiley )
but i'm happy with other things too.
i'm not set on items being exactly the way they look in the pin, but i think my pinterest gives a pretty good idea of my general taste, and i hope that would be a good guide Smiley

i am very open to receiving supply packages. in particular:
  • washi tape
  • ribbon and twine
  • interesting paper
  • stamps
  • stickers
my quilting board is not always the best indicator of the kind of fabric i like - i pin for block and pattern ideas, and they're often made up in fabrics i am not necessarily keen on.
i like vintagey fabric, particularly in natural and neutral colours - greens, browns, maroons, rosy pinks, golds, warm blues, etc.

my dislikes are:
  • synthetic fabrics and materials
  • super bright neons, aqua, candy pink, lime
  • religious iconography
  • novelty prints

thanks for reading - i'm looking forward to checking out all of your boards for ideas! xxx

now that gamemom42's received from me, i thought i'd share a photo.

this is the pin i claimed: http://pinterest.com/pin/914862397035813/
and it definitely ended up being a LARGE claim (i am so bad at judging how long crafts take, and always underestimate Tongue )

i tried to make it similar, but not identical, and this is how it turned out:
