I Claim  aunty.hela for a beach towel tote (if I can find a suitable beach towel this time of year Smiley)

1 claim, 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.

Going to follow the trend and put in a holiday list format

I claim Averia for a crocheted phone purse (likely a few crocheted little bags, I'm really fast)


Hi! I'm Shannon. I'm 29, and I live in Colorado with my husband, two cats and five chickens. I'm an English teacher currently on maternity leave: our baby girl Ariadne Magdalene was born Oct.

I have a special love for Orange ragdoll cats, buff Orpington chickens, fat positive/body acceptance culture, fairy tales and myths, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Terry Pratchett, crypto zoology, coffee, red wine, sour Candy.. I hate pink, purple and puff paint, I love glitter, metallics, geometric patterns, the colors mint, mustard, red, grey, black and aqua. I like chevrons, stripes and damask, as well as Indian (the country) patterns and aesthetics. Thrifted and used is a-ok!

For baby Ari:

Nursing necklace http://www.pinterest.com/pin/149252175124576909/ I love mustard, yellow, red, aqua, silver, gold, mint as jewelry colors.. Any of those.. wood is fine too

Cat purse.. Really any sort of cat shaped purse but I love this one http://www.pinterest.com/pin/149252175122156808/

Red pens

Dried herbs from your garden. Lavender, Calendula, Marigold, sage, hyssop, yarrow, lemon balm..I love the medicinal/protection herbs but would not say no to basil, oregano and coriander either.

Art supplies and scissors for my classroom. They are doing a unit on William Blake and will be doing some art projects. Watercolors, oil pastel crayons, colored pencils, anything they can use to make richly colored images. Partially used is fine.

I'm working on a Shrine for my deceased pets, and I need tiny figurines of the following: buff Orpington, barred rock, buff cochin, black jersey giant chickens. Any small day of the dead style bits and bobs for Shrine decoration would be great too, esp. Small skulls/bones/skeletons.
Peppermint and lavender essential oils, I go through them fast

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.
You cannot give me too much work; to accumulate work has almost become a passion with me: my study is so full of it now, that there is hardly an inch of room for any more. I shall have to throw out a wing soon. (J.K.Jerome)

I claim myloveasdeep for a pearl and leather necklace

Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband Uwe and two sweet little daughters Lea (2 years) and Hanna (2 months).  I have mild allergies (dogs, cats) and don't like cigarette/cigar smoke.  Our house is pet- and smoke-free.

My favourite colours are cream (sand, milk, stone, wool... think nature), pink, dark teal, dark brown, deep purple, and black. I use those colours for the kids as well, plus lots of bright light green. I like plain fabrics, or patterns like leaves, blossoms, polka dot, circles, stripes. We have decorated our apartment mostly in light colours (white, cream, wood) so colourful stuff is always welcome. Repurposed and/or used is always fine. I usually prefer cotton or other natural fibers over acrylics.  Also I'd be happy to receive supply only-claims.

I've set up a board on Pinterest for this swap, links to all handmade items (or at least pictures) from my list should be here: http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/craftster-ongoing-wish-swap/
You're welcome to check out the other boards (there are a lot), especially all of the Naehen (sewing) boards, want, Farben (colours) and fabric love for what I like, Kinderkram, Baby Stuff...
Not recommended are the following boards: Uwe, things to do, zum erstmal gucken, been there done that,

O I'd love to get this tote in a dark, solid colour: http://thelongthread.com/?p=10690

O Labyrinth onesie - the babe with the power (I really love the design from thinkgeek) http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/e846/?srp=6 or similar, or shirt
O speaking of Labyrinth: Jareth... crochet, knit, Fimo, whatever...
O simple "oversized cross-stitch" sweater or shirt (works for both kids or for me) like this http://www.uberchicforcheap.com/2012/10/diy-cross-stitch-heart-sweater.html - colours can be completely different, and the kids would love a star or a ladybug, as well

I claim anna.wahnsinn for contoured burp cloths .

1 claims  / 0 in transit / 0 received
Anna.wahnsinn for burp cloths

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.  

We don't have any allergies.

EVERYTHING in my Craftster Pinterest is game (I update my pinterest a lot!).  I'm in the OHLS and a lot of my gift ideas are in my pinterest.

I love anything funny and/or inappropriate.  I love off the wall humor, feel free to translate that any way you want into anything you make for me.  

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, creatures (I'm not a crazy collector of any of them, I just find myself checking out that kind of stuff out)

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.

Fluffle Puff plush!! Or if you think you could come up with a pattern close to it then I could sew it myself, I'm not great at pattern making yet http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773653997/

I actually got a Lt. Dangle poppet (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427858.0#axzz2gl1HHl3w) and now I just have to have all the Reno 911 characters (including Terry!) as poppets....throwing it out there just in case someone is nuts enough to pick a character and go with it Wink

pincushions --  I really love the pincushion-in-an-object idea, here's some ideas http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/pincushions

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

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

Reusable kitchen towel rolls in full or half size sheets (half sheet preferred), any colors to match with a variety of kitchens (bonus for using three snaps a side and including the center snap roll --I've seen it on other tutorials, it holds the towels in the middle--but I can make myself if needed) 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/

Hoopla -- any shape or size, see "likes" above or http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/embroideryhoopla/

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 LOVE some holiday themed pillow covers  (Valentine, Christmas, Easter mostly).  Here's some pillows I have pinned for inspiration

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/ (thanks Gamemom42!)

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

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

car trash bags with vinyl insert, any colors  (except pink and orange)

(lots) candy wrapper zip pouches from any kind of candy  

(3) Incognito bag of disguises http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773409379/

(2) car toy bags

2 Stale bread embroidery on a medium sized lunch bag, zip pouch or tote http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773356985/

I saw a Marlboro cigarette pouch on craftster and can't find it again, if you know what I'm talking about I would love a few of those (and the link)!  It looked like the marlboro lights box, maybe painted on

Any amount or color of pattern pouches http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773367731/


Crochet baskets, any colors http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759210/

Would love a few pairs of knit fingerless gloves, any colors (except orange, pink) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773759188/

Any embroidered flower bags like these http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773363149/


My daughter would love a suitcase pony playhouse (lil used suitcase from goodwill, or they sell wooden ones at Michaels, can use a coupon) run with it http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773518660/

I really just love wood stuff....like these simple lil house stumps would be awesome with just a few more details maybe http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773598522/

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

State magnets http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395053/

Personalized Journals: medium sized (not crazy large notebooks), thick unlined paper for gluing/painting/crafting on, pockets a plus (I can put some in later if needed)
1.  Art journal--- I'd really like you to art up the cover of the notebook and/or the first page totally in your style, include your username and any info about your art style/loves/info that you want.  I also would like the second page to include a printout (or handwritten) of this 30 day journal challenge http://pamperpusscat.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-30-day-art-journal.html to get me started.  
2.  Craftster journal --- decorated in craftster style, what a craftster book would look like to you.  I'll use this to keep track of my swaps and pics

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

I'd also love an art doll made by you...I really like the clay or paper mch ones (not completely fabric ones) sculptures and/or functional (lil containers).  I really like odd or funny, but NOT  dark and creepy.  Here's some inspiration on my pinterest (I would love anything inspired by this board!)

Monster hand carved stamps, there are examples of ones I like on my pinterest board.  I would also love different monster bodies with separate eyes, mouths, appendages, etc so I could mix and match to make different monsters Smiley

A daily December scrapbook so I can plan our Christmas activities that month and maybe put a pic on each page.  Each day gets a full front/back page. I love this one (I love the mellow grey, red,silver, blue and white) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773765714/

Personalized gift bags (vinyl, paint, fabric, whatever).  Message me for names

I claim Watsonc7 for 2 Christmas themed pillow Covers (1.0.0)

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!
