My name is Christy and I live in Maryland.  I am a stay at home mommy of one really energetic and crazy hilarious daughter.  We also have a lil chihuahua "ChiChi" and a chunky bunny "Fuzz Ball". I am originally from Austin, Texas and even though I love the seasons in Maryland, I am hoping to move back to crazy hot Austin when my husband retires from the Navy.  

I picked up sewing about 2 years ago and have become a crafting freak.  I mostly sew for extended family, they keep me buried in wishlists, so I was thrilled to find Craftster where I can actually get cool stuff in return for the cool stuff I sew, woop woop.  

I don't have any allergies.


Organizing my Pinterest seems like a forever-project, but here's a link to some of my Craftster wishes, some of which are highlighted below:
 (message me about anything on my other pinterest boards)

I am also currently in the Ongoing Holiday List 10 swap so you can always look up my latest wishlist there for more ideas

anything funny and/or inappropriate

Game of Thrones, Reno 911, Arrested Development, Labyrinth, East Bound and Down, Despicable Me, (I'll be adding to this, my mind is going blank at the moment)

Peacocks, owls, birds, houses, mushrooms, trees (I'm not a crazy collector of any of them, I just find myself checking out that kind of stuff often)

Grumpy Cat (who doesn't like Grumpy?!)

Steampunk (another thing Craftster got me addicted to!)  I really love the old timey, geary, rusty, machiney look of this

crochet stuff (unless its a specific request), tie-dye, fluorescents, and I'm not a huge fan of orange, or batiks or grandmaw-ey florals.


My daughter (size 8 or kids medium) refuses to give up last years ratted out kitty hoodie (this is it, pretty simple http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573552) , so I'd love to get her one made with some of her favorite specifics: (triple bonus) glow in the dark eyes/paws (her current one is glow in the dark), cute ears on hood, a deeper than normal hood to cover her face better (we like to walk to school especially in the winter so it will keep wind off her cheeks better), built-in fingerless paws (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573555/) and ooooh a detachable tail (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573525/).
The links are examples with different specifics in them, feel free to create your interpretation, she will freak out over any kitty hoodie I'm sure.

Poppet(s) -- a Reno 911 "Dangle" character poppet would be awesome (or any character from  shows above).  

pincushions -- see my pinterest site, I really love the pincushion-in-an-object idea

Cat pouch http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773423987/

(2) Car toy bag, whatever colors.  http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773430200/

Reusable kitchen towel rolls, any neutralish colors to match with a variety of kitchens http://pinterest.com/pin/248049891949374970/

I want want want this embroidery case

Mug shaped notebook cover, love this http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723772049221/

This sewing kit is so cool (any colors) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773367710/

Elastic envelopes, any colors or patterns http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723771949143/ (Averia)

Hoop baskets for my daughters playroom (with or without hardware---bright playroom fabrics) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773072208/

Teesha Moore patches -- any shape or size, see "likes" above for my pinterest site (kartiana)

Hoopla -- any shape or size, see my pinterest site or "likes" above.  I'd love a hoopla wall

Wristlet (in grays and/or dark versions of colors)
I really like a zip closure, wristlet strap, and a separation inside to keep my keys from scratching my cards and phone.  Below are just examples, but feel free to do a diff one.
This shape is cute http://www.noodle-head.com/2010/04/gathered-clutch-tutorial.html
Or maybe even

Mug  rugs -- artsy, or themed (I like tea, husband likes coffee, and daughter likes milk/cookies).  
Christmas hot cocoa/cookie mug rugs would be awesome too (we set up a hot cocoa bar at Christmas when my sis's family comes to visit, so 4 mug rugs for the kids would be adorable--you don't have to do all 4 though!) (Averia)

A pair of pillow covers (envelope,zipper,whatever) for my 17"x17" pillows
My LR colors are neutral blue and yellow with dark brown couch and accessories
I would also likes some holiday themed pillow covers  (Valentine, Christmas, Easter mostly)
Here's some pillows I have pinned for inspiration

Different sized magnetic fabric frames to show artwork and family pics on fridge http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773368284/

Pillow mat case for a girl (I can put pillows in it) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723769674199/

Bar stool covers (2)   My chairs are 14.5" for the measurement.  any patterned fabric with teals, yellows, lighter greens, lighter blues, or browns would work

Fabric envelope needle book http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773396374/

Wine cork hot plate holder (long or short) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773070638/ (Banga, I'll take more for gifts)
