I claim rubytuesday for a covered journal.  I make these up all the time so this is perfect for me to claim (and for her!!!)

This is my second claim
none has been sent
none has been received

Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 41 and im married to a great man and mom to three handsome boys in Northern California. I moved here from OH and love it!! We purchased our first home and are thrilled!!  I like to sew, quilt.  I am starting to get into embroidery and can crochet a little bit.  Im very much into girly type stuff and love anything regency -titanic era. I also love 30s-40s things as well.  I am allergic to nickel.
Here are my wishes
Anything off my wist list is great!!

Im looking for unwanted rock concert tshirts!!  80s hairbands a plus!!!  rock, hard rock or metal!! !

New items
pair of black leg warmers (for hubby) or/and a red pair for me!! crochet or knitted ~~claimed for my pair!!!  thanks!!!

Mediums (more can be found in my list  Grin)
~~Jewelry (chokers, bracelets, earrings but please no nickel posts)
~~Aprons!!  Even though I sew them I would love to see what others come up with!! 
~~New purse
~~Hand warmers Victorian Goth ones would be perfect.
~~Crazy Quilted Purse.  Or any purse made by you!!
~~Regency or Victorian era Reticule  (have received but more are always welcome here!!)
~~Petticoat (cotton or cotton blend please) either knee or ankle length with some fullness to it as I like poufy skirts !! I actually wear these a lot!! (Im 5'5 email for length) (received one from farmgirljane and would love more!!)
~~I would love some soft wool socks!!  Size 7 feet  Or a pair of socks with eyelet lace sewn around the cuffs (remember to stretch the sock a bit or it wont fit  Grin)
~~I have a weird obsession with knitted cuffs!! I love them!!  Chocolate brown, red.
~~ Anything that can help me decorate my Victorian inspired sewing room
~~ Would love a first aid kit that I can keep in my car.  Can be of any medium just as long as its a bit "fun" to look at and have. After all first aid is bad enough!!   Something really creative (thats why i asking.  I cant think of anything lol)

Im also looking for a sign that says "Please no solicitors or religious groups"  I have people of one kind or another knocking at my door constantly and it makes me rather uncomfortable.

Crafted Items~~


I love this shawl and I am willing to wait longer if anyone will make it for me. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CivilWarShawlKAL/  Im not picky about color.  Would be just happy to even have one.


**Civil War Era Cape called a Mathilde Mantilla (Think of a Civil War era Poncho.  This is basically what it is)  Here is a link to the pattern http://www.uvm.edu/%7Ehag/godey/images/s5902170.jpg  and here is an example of what it looks like http://www.thegracefullady.com/civilwargowns/ready-mades_silkmantle.htm Measurements will be provided.  Wool blend or Corduroy would be great. Hood is decorative and is not functional. It only uses around 3 yards.  I would also prefer it lined for warmth. It would be great if I could retain the pattern as well for future projects.  (I can sew I just cant figure out how to make it <frown>) without a pre-drafted pattern.  OR If someone with any drafting kills wouldnt mind drafting a pattern to my size I could play around with it and make my own (If I have a pattern to work with)

Primitive Raggedy Ann doll (An example is in my wists) (Kookaloo Star sent me a lovely one but im going to leave this here cause im in love with these and would love a collection of them.)

Victorian caplet.  At least waist length please email for length.

Slat bonnet or corded can provide links if needed.  Any pattern should do as they are all basically the same result.

I would love some handkerchiefs. Monogrammed with my initials would be nice too!! (received more is welcomed)

Victorian slippers.  This pattern is from 1864

Im looking for special kind of apron for my husband.  He cooks the eggs at breakfast time and is a ninjitsu martial artist.  I would love an embroidered apron that has a ninja/martial artist holding a spatula in each hand and says "Egg Master" underneath.  Fabric and colors are open as long as its durable and holds up.

Other Crafts~~~
Bars of handmade soap (the kind that is made from lye).  Lavender, oatmeal, goats milk, citrus are great however any scents are welcome!!  Or soap supplies/kit as I would love to learn how to make my own.  Plain Pre-made soap bars (cold press i think they are called) that are ready to have scents, colors, herbs ect melted and added in are appreciated too as I have young children and am concerned with having lye in the house.  <USA only>    Sad

Room sprays

Im looking for some scented oils.  I would rather these be handmade or from specialty shops and not from stores like joanns or hobby lobby ect.

Hand crafted candles are great too. Prefer either fruit and or spice scented ones or lavender (only floral scented one I like).  Im also interested in the scented candle chunks that you can melt and scent your house with.  I have received some but always appreciate more!!

Whimsey jar are really fun!!

Im loving the moon jars!! Would love to have one!! (babalina sent me two, hubby wants more lol)

Im looking for a serving tray that I can bring snacks from the kitchen to the living room.  Asian or Victorian influence a real plus.  Ive seen some nice ones made from frames (glass removed)

Im also looking for a picture frame.  about 1.5 inches or more wide/thick on the sides.  What I would like is a thin wooden back fitted to it. I dont need the glass for it.  An old vintage frame would be preferred for this.  Im going to use it as a center piece tray for candles (if you can visualize it will lay flat on the table) I can take a pic of the pic in my book if you would like to see my inspiration.

Shower curtain.  Victorian style please!! Please contact for colors.

My 18 year old loves Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before Christmas so anything with him on (appropriate for a guy) would be fantastic
Handcrafted Jewelry with Victorian influence

Im looking for a table runner for our new table we recently purchased.  Looking for something, of course Victorian style as well.  Measurements can and will be provided.  Want something rich looking but affordable to make!!  Also looking for new fabric dinner napkins (18").

Sewing items~~ Anything related to sewing is welcome!!  Trims, fabric, thread ect.(Gently used too)
Im also interested in any older sewing supplies as well from antiques stores and such (I have a tracing wheel i bought for $4 so they can be affordable).  Patterns (Burda Mag, Modern, Historic and Historic inspired too)!!  I need envelopes with a size 14 & 16 included in the envelope for dresses and tops and a 16 for skirts.  Thanks!!
Vogue~~ .. .2884...2968...1239 ... 8352...8003,,,v1178,,,v1172

Im especially trying to find a Simplicity Jumper Pattern from 1948 pattern is on my wist list (36" bust if possible)

Fabric Mystery Bundle from Fabricmart.com  http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com/xcart/804051-10-yard-Mystery-Fabric-Bundle-Assortment.html  Or the mystery box they have for sale (received but more are always welcome!!  I love these!!!!  Thanks Averia!!)

New or Unwanted Issues of Threads ( I have all of 2003, 2006-2008 Though I dont have issues 137 or 138, 140  !!!) probably best to check with me on numbers!! and Burda World of Fashion Magazine !! (I have a few ...1/06** 7/03**4/05** 3/08**)  (used is fine) Knipmode, Ottobre, Patrones, La Mode

Magazines (new or used!!)  Gothic Lolita Bible Magazine, Beading and Jewelry making, Knitting and Crochet, Magazines from Somerset Studios.  Here is a link to their site and the magazines they offer http://www.stampington.com/html/main_magazines.html  Im especially looking for Haute Handbags!!!!   As well as cooking mags!!

Purse supplies of all sorts (handles, magnetic snaps, rings ect).  Silver Victorian clasps would be great too (can be found at Hancocks).  I desperately need some magnetic snaps!!

Scrapbooking items  (trims, paper, stickers anything!!).  Im also looking for some things like brads, ribbons, fancy paper, scissors.  Im also looking for corner punchers, rulers for making fancy torn edges and hole punchers (I have a heart one).  Also plain colored or white blank greeting type cards would be wonderful!!


Costume jewelry or broken pieces that can be recycled into new jewelry

I really need some cub/boy scout related scrapbooking items such as paper, stickers ect!!!!

Also looking for decorated photo albums.  One for the non American candy wrappers that I collect!!

Handcrafted cards by you would be great!!

Im also looking for a decorated (painted/decoupaged/stained ect) box for my scrapbooking paper or larger 12X12.  Would prefer an old vintage look.

Stamps and ink pads

Beading supplies like wire 18 gauge or higher, beads, spacers.  Im also needing jewlery making supplies too.  I would love some Swarovski jewelry supplies!!  Also ANY bead findings from Blue Moon Beads of their Lost and Found and/or Manor House (or any that features Victorian/Edwardian pieces) collection would be wonderful.  Also looking for a roll of tiger tail for beading and jewelry projects!!

Yarn!! I love yarn!! I would prefer not to receive any 100% acrylic.  However wool, cotton, silky whatever!!  All colors are welcome (well except neon bright bright colors).

My husband collects law enforcement patches.  I would love to get a bunch for him for him.  If you live near a prison, jail or other LE facility perhaps they would let you have one???  He gets his this way by asking and they are usually happy to give him one.  My husband loves Asian things as well as LE related (he is a correctional officer) and anything relating to the park service (Smokey the Bear gets double marks lol!!). He is a fan of Bruce Lee and any DVD (he has VHS) movies or any craft with him inspired would be wonderful!!  Or perhaps a stenciled t-shirt of Bruce Lee.  He would be thrilled to receive something just for him (It also continues him to encourage me to swap.  Ya know totally his idea)

Also I would love to be able to get him a hooded jacket with a nin symbol on it!! Stenciled or embroidered (Will send link to a pic if needed).  Does not need to be a crafted hoodie.  Purchased hoodie is perfectly fine!!  (Pending thanks Averia!!!)

Also im looking for bath tub grippers (the ones that prevent slipping) im looking for the kind that stick directly on the tub using tape/sticker.  I cant find any except for the mats

Lego's for my two boys would be wonderful.  They are obsessed!!

Im also looking for a Yellow Freight cap.  Hubby would love one, and has said so for as long as we have been together.  Not sure why but figured I would look for him!!

Parchment paper

Last but not least total complete surprises are welcome!!  If you are good at something and have something you love making.  Go right ahead.  I will say that my tastes are Victorian so if you can incorporate that even more perfect!!

I claim kittykill for either a necklace or an infinity scarf (gotta check my stash)

First claim this round (due 1/24/14)
0 shipped
0 received

My name is Karen and I live in Austin, TX with my teenaged dd (who typically ends up with most of my swap items), a huge, goofy lab-mix and a lovely, prissy cat.

I love designs from the 60's and early 70s (think mod & flower power). Also 50's post-modern. 50's/60's SURF THEMES!  I used to have a 1974 VW Thing and I miss it a lot! I also love Asian designs in fabric and artwork.
I prefer clean lines and bold graphics rather than cutesy or fussy prints.

I was born in the year of the Dragon and I just love them! And English Bulldogs (cute, not fierce).  I love anything magical/wonderous including fairies and Alice in Wonderland. 
Also, pretty much any Amy Butler fabric.

If you are doing a t-shirt, please not a men's or hanes or jerzees. For me, a ladies med (or if junior sizing, go for a large) (prefer scoop neck).  For DD, juniors fitted med (size 3/5) or ladies small. Thanks!

Other random things I love: silver jewelry, reading, travel, art, geekery, the periodic table, Scooby-Doo, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Firefly, nature, trees, dandelions, rain, cooking, whimsical things (but not whimsies), steampunk!. For more info check my pinterest.

In general, I prefer practical things that can be used (with the exception of small wall art or hoops for
my hoopla wall) .  My favorite colors are bolder/earthy tones to 60s mod.  Blues/greens/tangerine/black/white/deep red Please no neon colors or pastels, or pink.

I would love anything from my pinterest :  http://pinterest.com/luckdragon/   but especially the things below. 

REALLY would love anything in highlighted below in  PURPLE

I claim luckdragon for some funky potholders and leather pieces.

This is my claim #3!  3/0/0

Claim 1:  Grab a Coffee--fabric baskets and supplies due 1/22/14
Claim 2:  JillHogan - socks due 1/22/14 *may need a bit more time depending on if I have the yarn already!
Claim 3:  Luckdragon - funky potholders and leather pieces - due 1/24/14

Hi, my name is Linda.  I live near Hershey, PA on a forested piece of land with my husband, three cats and an old black lab.  My elderly mother also lives with us.
I love to sew and knit but have little time for art so most of the things I want are things to brighten my day and my workspace.  I joined this swap because
I enjoy the company and I also see lots of things I want to make but have no reason to make them for myself.

I want whomever selects me to do their own thing...I enjoy almost all styles except I am not really into cutesy, animation, etc.

My favorite colors are red, black, and earth tones: greens, blues, browns, golds. I mostly wear bright colors, but my home is more neutral and earthy.

I also prefer smaller things as I am trying to display a lot in limited space.  I have tons of wall space.

Here is my limited list.  I have a Pinterest account, but most of the stuff there are things I want to make, not receive.   I'll be working on updating a new board as the year progresses
for things I want similar...I prefer not to have anything copied as I respect the original artist and want you to develop your own style with Pinterest as inspiration only.

TAGS -- I need tags to attach to my random art projects.  If they can be printed with my email, it would be great! If you select this, please PM me for what I need printed on these tags.
I also need a small hole punched in the tags so I can attach them to my projects

NOTECARDS -- just decorated or with "Thank you" on them---I go through a ton of these due to swapping and making gifts for family and friends...no oversized ones due to postal costs...just simple regular ones

HEARTS--I have collected these from Craftsters for years...I hang them on a string in my craft room...so anything that can be clipped to a string would be great: felt, knitted, crocheted, paper

INCHIES - I want to do an alphabet sampler...right now, I have none, so pick a letter or two and I will scratch them off...I would like a variety of styles from different people, so no more than 3 or 4 from one person, please
I also love bugs, cats, the color red, and graphic designs...chevrons, dots, stripes, etc.
A, M--thanks Jill Hogan!!

ATC's--Here I want to do my full name so I need letters!  I have the following letters already "L" ,"E", "S"...I need the following: I, E(2), B, O, L, R, S, N, D, A --any style would be great!
-my themes are: the color red, Asian-themed, insects, sewing, vintage, circus,

S--thanks JillHogan!

ART FOR MY WALLS...I am trying to cover my entire craft room with wall art...hoops, watercolors, etc. Anything not too big so I can fit a lot more artists...say nothing bigger than about 8x10..I prefer smaller, if possible

JEWELRY--I love wearing longer necklaces in the winter with my sweaters...I like pendants and funky pieces that make people ask about the piece--I don't want anything too dainty that will get lost in the background...but I don't want to look like MC Hammer, either!

BOOKMARKS are always welcome in my house...

Supplies:  I would love hand spun or hand dyed yarns in a quantity large enough to at least make a cowl...preferably done by you!

I like postcards and stuff unique to the area you live in...this could include local coffees, teas, candy

I have a limited Pinterest so feel free to ask if you see anything I might like that you want to make.

OTHER: any type of pin or brooch for my plain coats--felted, crocheted, sewn, jewelry...I just love wearing pins on everything! I also love felted small ornaments or pins.

STAMPS:  I would like any kind of hand carved stamp for my own art...it does not have to be huge. I love Dr. Who motifs or nature motifs

PINCUSHIONS:  I have quite a collection, but would love one that goes on my sewing machine

HOME DECOR:  I have made a resolution to decorate for the holidays...I have two fireplaces, so anything to decorate for the holidays would be great.
I would like Valentines stuff or Halloween stuff or even Mardi Gras--wreaths, buntings, whatever is cute and can be displayed on a mantel!

I will be adding to my list as time goes by because I see so many things I never thought I needed! Grin

i claim alwaysinmyroom for some wall art


hiya craftsters!  i'm jo.  i live in a small town right outside of st. louis, missouri (but in illinois) with my husband and my 2 awesome kiddos.  georgia is 10 and wiley is 3.  we also have a kitty named qt. 

things i love: reading (hunger games, game of thrones, twilight, crossfire series, morganville vampires, jodi picoult, delirium, etc, etc), my shows (greys, scandal, breaking bad, walking dead, orange is the new black, modern family, once upon a time, downton abbey, etc), bright colors (aqua, purple, teal, red, golden yellow, orange, most shades of green), old tattered patchwork quilts, bunnies

we have no serious allergies here, but i work very hard to avoid cat hair and cigarette smoke, so those things are not appreciated.

i have set up a few pinterest boards for swapping, and nearly everything listed here can be found on them.  however, you can feel free to peruse any of my "i want" pin boards to find inspiration.  i write my own captions, so PLEASE defer to them for adjustments for colors, style, etc (or ask me?)  "*"s indicate big wishes

I claim Quaggy for wool dryer balls!

Hi, Im Valarie, and I live in California (USA) with my husband, my daughter Lily, and sometime around February 10th my other daughter Willow. I am Allergic to nickel based earrings, love to crochet, getting better at sewing, and do some occasional papercrafting. I am an English lit major, but am off from school until September. I love to read and write. My daughter just got an American Girl Doll (Marie Grace) for Christmas, and we would love anything that is made for an 18 inch doll. For myself, I tend to run a bit on the mystical nerdy side, Doctor Who, Buffy, Harry Potter, witches, werewolves, ghosts, etc.

Favorite Colors: I am a color person! Not much I do not like. My house is a lot of oceaning blues and greens, and tan. With the girls I tend to lean more towards purple and pretty blues rather than a ton of pink, but pink is still good!

Yuck colors: Navy Blue, I have a hard time distinguishing it from black and because of that it makes me mad, lol.

My pinterest is: http://www.pinterest.com/pixieval/
I love surprises, so it doesnt have to be on my list. Something inspired by my list or my pinterest is awesome!

Clothes/Accessories/toys for American Girl Dolls
