Most of you know me Cheesy but there are a few new people so HELLO PEEPS Cheesy
My birthday is tomorrow ( Aug 2) and well you know how that goes I am so glad to see this past year go and hope that next year will be great as I lost way too much this past year from dealing with cancer getting DX with Lupus to my mom, step dad and best GF dying, my  house flooding over and over and so on... Just to much and hope for a better 44!!.
 I have 2 grand kids that live with me. Most of you know Alana and Houston and 2 great dogs Bella and Ralphie. My Husband is a great guy too~ Thinks we are crazy for all the crafty stuff but meh he is clueless I guess. I am living in MA for the past year. So different from my world of NC. I sure miss non kitty litter feeling beaches LOL Sugar sand is what I am use to and here it is all the kitty litter sand and rocks.

 I love handmade items and I also have a huge Pintrest so you can look for my style there really. Pretty random.  I do not ware black at all. If not at a funeral I will not ware it. I love soft beachie colors and do not ware primary color green at all! We have a little boy in our house again that cant deal with the color. I love the Walking Dead and am going to Comic Con Boston and NYC Cheesy

 I do not really have friends here where we have moved to as it is quite the strange place ( the drama on this base and the crap starters just force the decent people indoors) so I now stay to myself outside of my running group. Yep, I took up running and if someone wants to make my world I really really want the Bib/medal hangar set Cheesy  I am in training for a marathon. I have had some health issue and my share of grief in the past year but decided I am doing this for me! I am part of a handicap group of runners.We all have some health issues but we push running wheelchairs so that handicap can experience racing too! I will never win a race but I win by showing up! My life has been not so great this past year and I am ready to take it back!

We have a huge allergy to smoke so if you smoke inside please pass on claiming. I cant have nickel as I have a blistering allergy to that tooHorseradish, but I do not see you all sending me a hoopla of horseradish so that one is just odd~

I claim Babalina58 for Christmas towels

1st claim this month, 0 being shipped, 0 received

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit and a box turtle.

For most things, I would prefer items inspired by my pinterest instead of exact duplicates.

I am a stay-at-home mom and a writer. I love cross stitch and embroidery and I have a huge wall set aside for hoops. It has had many beautiful additions from swapping, but there is a smidge of room left to fill. I am a huge fan of Firefly/Serenity, steampunk, and the color blue in all shades. Most rooms in my house are white or beige with blue accents, my living room is pale green. I need some color. I'm trying to make our house feel something like a beach cottage (even tho we are about 30 minute drive from the Chesapeake bay) but the house has more of an overstuffed, cluttered, lived in feel.
Crafted Wishes:
~Anything inspired from http://pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me/, http://pinterest.com/averiakrazy/would-love-for-franki/, http://pinterest.com/averiakrazy/inspiration/, http://pinterest.com/averiakrazy/firefly/, http://pinterest.com/averiakrazy/floppsy/ or pretty much anything else on my pinterest Cheesy

~I would love a new fabric key fob wristlet - I got one in a past swap that I have used constantly and it is finally wearing out
~Family Passport pouch http://pinterest.com/pin/216383957068817380/ is an example of what I was thinking

~A comfy bed for my rabbit (he's a mini rex, so he's on the small side)
~nautical themed/embroidered throw pillow cover in 16"x16" size. Feel free to send unstuffed, I have pillow forms. Any shade of blue or beige/cream with blue
~embroidered pin cushions
~casserole carrier http://pinterest.com/pin/216383957068115751/ for round casserole dishes

~Kindle cosy
~Kindle cushion maybe something like in this tutorial http://seamedsimple.blogspot.com/2011/10/normal-0-false-false-false-en-us-x-none.html
~place mats with a pocket for silverware something like http://pinterest.com/pin/216383957065851907/ either blue and white or red, white, and blue would be particularly loved.

~reusable swifter covers
~boot cuffs - any pattern - example http://pinterest.com/pin/216383957067469156/

I claim Averia for a Pinterest Surprise!

1st claim this month, zero shipped, zero received

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!

I claim texscrapper for some burlap flowers and fabric (I happen to have one of your pinned fabrics in my stash.  I bought it and never used it!)

1st claim this round

Hi!  I'm Teresa from Georgia and I'm so happy the OWS is back up and running!  Thanks Monica for many many fun months and thanks Averia and Breegy for keeping it going while Monica takes her well deserved break from organizing.

I live on a little patch of land  north of Atlanta with my husband of 32 years, a pet cow, mini donkey, two pygmy goats, and three cats.  One of our grown daughters is living at home right now with her little black rescue dog.  He has taken over our home and our hearts in a huge way.  I've taught a young 5's class at a private preschool for 22 years and I love love love my job!

I have no true allergies but I do have an intense dislike for the smell of smoke (esp. cigar and pipe) and lavendar.

I have a seriously massive Pinterest.  Feel free to choose something off of one of these boards (please stick to these boards):

OWS/OPS Biggest Wishes
Crafty Wishes:  This & That
Crafty Wishes:  Fabric
Crafty Wishes:  Yarn
I'd rather not be claimed for a surprise.  I like to know what's coming.


A Jack & the Beanstalk playset in any medium.  Nice and sturdy.

A Billy Goats Gruff playset in any medium.  Nice and sturdy.

A 3 Little Pigs playset in any medium.  Nice and sturdy.

Largish note cards or stationary with a space theme.  I would rather have fewer elaborate cards than a quantity of simple ones.  I am pen pals with an 8 year old former student who moved away and I love to send over the top cards and stationary when I write to him.  Really, if you send me two really "WOW" cards that would be a fantastic claim!

Anything Georgia themed for my daughter's classroom.  She teaches 8th grade Ga. history.  

A set of mesh produce bags with drawstring closures.

A couple of washable dusters for my Swiffer 360.  I love that thing but those refills are expensive!

Wall art that says "The Queen is Crafting".  Any medium, bright colors, any size.

A plastic bag holder in a whimsical cat themed fabric.

70's "flower power" vinyl clings or magnets

A fabric wallet.  I have never had a wallet I really liked so I'll leave the style totally up to you.  I would love the fabric to be either purple paisley, colorful mushrooms, or retro flowers but anything fun will be great.

A journal made from an old Golden Book or from a child's school book of some sort (an old, worn out, it's okay to destroy it book of course).

Sturdy dog toys.  He is small with a small mouth and prefers smallish toys and floppy things.

Cat nip pillows.  My old cats don't "play" so much anymore but love to snuggle on little cat nip pillows.  They don't enjoy the cat nip spray so please use dried catnip.

Lightweight earrings in any of these themes:  pizza, goldfish crackers, space, dinosaurs, circus                                          
(shrinky dink would be perfect or any other very lightweight medium)


fairy tale themed fabric
fabric crayons
fabric markers
transfer pens
any fabric that brings the 60's or 70's to mind (old sheets, curtains, etc... are fine for this)
1/2 yard of any color felt from the bolt (not the sheets)
good metal snaps
cotton batting
interfacing (sew in or iron on)
your favorite sewing or needlework supply that you just couldn't live without
large or small round hot glue sticks
buttons... always
painting supplies: brushes, sponges, ?
colored tape of any kind, washi, masking, duct....

a photo of your county courthouse (hard copy with info on back)
your favorite vegetarian, vegan, WW, or gluten free recipes
Starburst Babies (if you're from a country that has them)
gluten free snacks and treats (must be certified gf)
old photos of people (for journal prompts and creative writing prompts)

Thanks for claiming me!

I claim gamemom for a crochet monkey from her pinterest.


Okay, it's getting closer and closer to Christmas, so I am getting excited! I have a board for "christmas swaps", feel free to craft from that, as we threw out ALL of our christmas decorations when we moved! I am adding some gifts to my list that I would like some help with, so please feel free to claim those! (I know I like crafting more for the craftster member, I dont know if anyone else is the same way)

I am 25 years old, and I live near St. Louis, MO. I have a 2 year old daughter, and a boyfriend of 4 years. I go to school full time for Graphic Design with one year left. I am very crafty and don't stick to a particular method, so it's hard to pinpoint my expertise. I am an intermediate crocheter, I paint, draw, sculpt, assemble, yada, yada. I am always looking for sewed items, as that's the one crafting method I havent tried yet.

For my Pinterest, go here: http://pinterest.com/breegy/
For my WISHLIST Pinterest, go here: http://pinterest.com/craftsterbreegy/
For my wists go here: http://www.wists.com/breegy

I like chevron, stripes, india inspired designs, bold shapes, and antiqued designs/styles. (I have an album.)
I like bold, dark, jewel, and fall tones. My favorite colors are coral and mustard yellow.
Owl anything!
Alien anything! (the little green guys, not the movies)
Lavender, Hippy, and Coffee scents
Dangly earrings
Everything nerdy
Turquoise (the mineral, not particularly the color)
Anything wearable and leather (I'm a leather jacket and combat boots kinda girl)
Anything from the following fandoms in ALWAYS welcome: Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, Merlin, The Guild, Supernatural, Harry Potter, or Community.

Purples, neon colors, blues.
Useless, cluttering stuff.
Fruit scents and minty scents
Anything super girly
Butterflies, asian influences, dragonflies, realistic flowers, pretty much anything that goes along with that "peace, unity, and love" trend. Although, I DO enjoy tie-dye in dark colors.

I have no allergies that I know of, and hopefully I don't find out about them from your swaps!

Click Me for my Wishlist Pinterest!

A camera strap! (a patterned, stylish fabric, preferably)
Throw Pillows in off white, tan, brown, light/dark grey, or mustard yellow (Sending without filling is OKAY, I am capable of stuffing and sewing the bottoms up myself. [: ) Lots of inspiration on styles here.
Oven mits (red, black, and/or white in the theme of owls preferably)
Mug rugs (see my Pinterest board for inspirations)
A fabric cigarette case for myself. (and if they are easy to make, maybe a second one for my mother-in-law Wink)
Harry Potter Kindle Cover I would actually LOVE this as a Merlin.
Buntings. There are loads of them on this board.
A remote holder like this. In yellow, white, brown, tan, and/or grey. Designs are okay.
Super hero masks for my autistic little brother. In Sonic, Spiderman, Batman, original Pokemon, and Dragonball Z(maybe have saiyan hair attached?). He is very particular about his cartoons (his eye for detail is amazing), so please try and get the designs as much like the character as possible. He is also 20, so it's not for a child's head.
Travel Trashbag for my car (brown, tan, and light blue)
Draft Blockers. (I can fill them myself) Color combos on the link.
A car organizer maybe with a few extra spots for small toy figurines and crayons. In tan/brown/light blue colors, preferably.
An activity holder in red, white, and/or black. Designs are okay, owls a plus. =)
18 month underwear. HUGE need! My daughter is potty training and I cant find underwear to fit her ANYWHERE, she is so little around the waist. I can get a measurement if you need me to.

Size 8 (or 8 1/2) house slippers (I love the elf ones, and the fitted two tone ones)!
This awesome hat!
Amigurumi Viking in Purple and Yellow (minnesota vikings) for my father.
My daughter would love this hello kitty scarf. I know i have seen a free HK granny square pattern somewhere, so it's not necessary to buy this pattern.
Yo Gabba Gabba Mittens. Seriously, my daughter saw me pinning these and went apeshit.

A crochet needle holder (this can be any medium)
Hoopla art (many ideas here.)
Zombie gnome
A Rain Chain
Moving Mountains sign. inspired by or replica of this one. the color is perfect.
A door hanger that says "hi". I really have no spectacular ideas for this, honestly. I just want it to match my door mat
A decorated recipe box (in red/white/black, and owl themed)
A Pinky Pie (My Little Pony) shirt. Size 2t or 3t, please.
A surprise for a 2 year old (she's advanced for her age, though). Shirts, toys, activity sets, figurines, dolls, etc. She LOVES Pinky Pie from My Little Pony, Hello Kitty, The Color Crew, Muno/Plex from Yo Gabba Gabba, and turtles! Get creative!
THIS phone case. I have an HTC Evo though.
Fandom figurines! (Plush, clay, or any other medium)
I would love two handmade journals. One for keeping track of swaps (can be smaller), and the other for crochet patterns I enjoy. Refer here for style/design inspiration.
My Little Pony Tail?
Some bunting cards to send with my swaps.
Yo Gabba Gabba nesting dolls for my daughter.
Baseball bracelets. I would need 12 for my softball team. I know that's a lot, but they seem really easy to make. I just don't have access to 6 baseballs. (used and old balls are totally okay! and make sure one bracelet is a little larger, we have a big guy.)
A stuffed turtle. This can be crocheted, knitted, or sewn. I have several examples on my pinterest. (inspired or exact)
Felted dryer balls
Zetti windchimes (this claim is on hold for babalina58)

ANYTHING goes on this pinterest. Inspired or exact! Also, I LOVE surprises!

I claim Breegy for handmade journals
Outstanding Claims: 1
Sent (in transit): 0
Received: 0

Hi, Im Reinikka and I currently live in Southern California with my boyfriend and our two crazy dogs

I do a lot of paper crafting (I especially love making journals) and Im getting back into sewing. I just picked up English Paper Piecing, its time consuming but very addictive! I also have a few quilts planned and would love a fabric filled supply package Wink

My favorite colors are green, purple, and earthy tones. I am not a fan of pink or yellow (though mixed with other colors is ok and I do like bright pink with bright orange). If you claim me for anything wearable please check my pintrest for color ideas or feel free to ask me if youre not sure. There are a few things on my list where color/pattern do not matter so dont let this discourage you.  

If you make me something with yarn please use only natural fibers (like cotton and wool). I have no allergies unless you plan on sending me bacon or preserved pork. Oh, and I do not have pierced ears, so no earrings please!

I love surprises so please dont feel limited to what I have on my list, check out my pinterest and if anything inspires you please be creative! Cheesy

Big Wishes in Bold!
