  Grin Hi!  My name is Barbara (aka-LadybugsAndBumblebees), and this is my first OWS swap!  I'm so excited! I am married to a wonderful man who supports my crafting; and am blessed to be mom to three terrific kids-DS age 19, DD age 11, and DD age 9.  We live in New York.

I am doing this swap mainly in hopes of receiving items to give as gifts to family, friends, and co-workers, as well as items to use in my classroom; but am open to receiving anything that anyone would like to claim me for!

My Pinterest link is:  http://pinterest.com/LdybgGrl, and my wist link is:  http://wists.com/MissBarbara.  (The links are also in my signature.)  I also have a HUGE, detailed Craftster profile that has both information about me and also what I would like to receive as far as gifts for other people.

I would LOVE to receive anything from my:  'What I Would Love To Receive For My Craftster Swaps' board, 'Please Make Me A Gift For...' board, and 'Ideas For My Classroom' board. (Please feel free to make items that I can use with the students in the classroom...I have the ideas/items pinned, but probably won't ever get around to making them myself!)       Roll Eyes

Feel free to use the other boards for inspiration, and to check my Craftster profile for additional information.

-A shirt in size 2x that says:  Inked & Awesome
-Jewelry (necklaces need to be longer for me, bracelets are best if they are adjustable)
-Something that says:  O'hana.  It means family.  It means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.  O'hana.
-Decorated headbands (The hard, U shaped ones, please.  And nothing too outlandish...I'm a teacher...)
-Home spun, home dyed yarn
-Lanyard for my work ID (I like to match these to my outfit for the day, so more than one is welcome!) (Or even a few for my co-workers for holiday time gifts would be great!)
-Yarn pom-poms in every color for use in my classroom.  (Please make sure they are VERY sturdily made, as they will be being used by 15 preschoolers!   Wink
-Chair covers for the backs of two chairs.  (Please PM me for measurements.)
-Seat covers for two chairs.  (Please PM me for measurements.)
-Gift tags
-homemade paper gift bows

-Anything bug related...he's an exterminator      Grin  (Just nothing with spiders or praying manitses on them...he doesn't like them.)
-Change holder that can be put in his car...I have no idea how this would work...any ideas?  (It would have to be something that didn't spill while driving.)
-A shirt in size 4-5x that says:  Real Men Marry Teachers
-Crocheted dodo bird
-Crocheted mouse

-An earbud holder that is on a keyring (I would love one for DS and one for DD.)
-Decorated headbands (the hard, U-shaped ones, please) for DD.
-Lip balm bandolier for DD.
-Nintendo DS holder/bag/?? for DD.
-Aprons for both DDs.  (Please PM me for the needed measurements.)
-Nautical themed rope bracelet with anchor closure for DS.
-Bow ties for DS.
-A hoopla that says:  I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, forever and ever, my baby you'll be. (For DS)
-Cloth napkins to be used in lunch boxes for school for DDs.  (Not too big, please.)
-Cloth snack bags to be used in lunch boxes for school for DDs.
-Anything 'Minecraft' themed (a computer game) for either or both of my DDs.

I am fine with receiving "supply only" packages.  Things I could use are:
-regular Sharpie markers in any/all colors  (black ones are the most needed for my classroom)
-the Sharpie markers you use to write on cups/plates/etc...that don't wash off after being baked in the oven
-black pens
-mechanical pencils
-yarn (new please-acrylic is fine, just please NO wool or fun fur)
-I need two dollar store shoe holders (the ones that hang over the back of a door) (where the openings are on the top, not the sides)  ( I need them for organization in my classroom...not shoes!)      Cheesy
-fabric (Scraps are fine, as long as they are not teeny-tiny.)
-scissors (Both for adults and children-they get lost QUICK in this house!        Tongue
-pocketbook handles
-colored pencils
-seed beads in any/all colors
-well made pencil pouch (i.e.-no plastic ones, please) that has any of my fav. themes on it (I need it to hold my sewing supplies in my crafting bag and the one I have is getting a hole in it.)
-appliques for me to attach to projects I made (any and all subjects are fine)
-zippers (any and all colors are fine, as well as any and all sizes)
-dollar store metal cookie trays (I use them for many things in my classroom)

-postcards from where you live (2 would be great, I use one for home and one for my classroom)
-a map of your town (My 11yo DD LOVES maps!)
-sugar free/fat free snacks
-aquaphor lip balm

*I am unable to take and post photos.  If the person who claims me could do so, it would be MUCH appreciated!*

*I do not have allergies, but everyone else in my home has slight allergies.  I can receive from someone who has a pet(s) as long as the craft/supplies is kept away from the pet.  Please do not claim me if you smoke or have smokers in your home. There are NO allergens in my home.*

I claim LadybugsAndBumblebees for a crocheted dodo bird


Hi! I'm Michelle from NC. I am 32 years old and I have a 7 year old daughter. I love to crochet, cross stitch and embroider. I like to dabble in other things but those are my favorites.  I am a lover of almost all things geeky/fandom related and my living room is decorated with all the wonderful geeky things I have received in swaps.

My daughter will be turning 8 on Aug. 30 and I would love to get a few crafted things for her birthday. She is currently into Pokemon, Batman, Binky the Space Cat, space, cats and Sonic the Hedgehog.

I claim Spikefan for a couple of microwave bowl holders (so cool!)

3 claims  / 2 in transit / 0 received
claimed texscrapper for first aid rolls (sent)
claimed banga for scrabble pillow and 4T mustache shirt (sent)
claimed spikefan for microwave bowl holders  (claimed)

Hey hey!
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:
http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/    (message me about anything on my other boards)

I feel like my color style is more modern but I also find myself ooohing over rusty/old colors so I think I'm pretty easy to please. I like both neat and clean looking sewing as well as scratchy free-motion embroidery. I started pinning colors and fabrics to my fabric pinterest board so there might be a bit of inspiration for you there (it's a lot of bright colors currently but I also like dark and bold), but for the most part, don't stress over colors for me! http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/fabric/

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 (sorry guys, I don't know why!), tie-dye, fluorescents, and I'm not a huge fan of batiks or grandmaw-ey florals.


Poppet(s) -- a Reno 911 "Dangle" character poppet would be awesome (or any character from  shows above).  I don't have a poppet yet

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

I want want want this embroidery case

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

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

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!)

Mini Quilts -- see my pinterest site for inspiration

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/

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

Book pouches, so neat!! I'd love tons of these in adult and kid themes http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395308/

Cat keyboard rest, love the white cat http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773393487/


I would love handmade stamps -- I really love the house/town stamps  I keep seeing on Craftster! (Lo{ve})

wood slice chalkboard (or even any sizes of wood slices without chalk paint, love them) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773363242/

birdhouses (any shape/size finished/unfinished) with a flat back for hanging on wall

I would flip for a set of character (any of my favs above) Matryoshka (sp?) dolls like http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773072033/

Wine cork hot plate holder (long or short) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773070638/

Glow in the dark Play-doh http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723770920774/

This old looking wooden wonky house set is awesome! http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773396324/

State magnets, would love this set! http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395053/

wood burned utensils, any design http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395014/


++Poppet making supplies -- I have yet to make a poppet
++Cotton Perle embroidery thread, any color
++Wooden hoops for hoopla, any size
++Charms -- I am suddenly a huge charm collector, any kind!
++Buttons -- both the clothing type and the pin type (pin button machines are insanely  expensive!!)
++Purse making supplies -- clasps, magnetic closures, etc
++Stamp carving tools to make my own stamps
++magnet sheets
++any kind of old hardware -- knobs, keys, hooks, whatever
++metal stamping discs/metal
++Silhouette cutter supplies (blades, cutting mats, vinyl, transfer paper, stamp paper, etc---used is totally fine!)
++altoid tins
++ZIG Millenium pens (or other permanent art pens---used is fine!)
++ blank shrinky dink sheets
++ wine corks (1, 2, 10, 100...ill take whatever you got!)
