I claim watsonc7 for a stuffed pom pom hanging cloud (with rain drops instead of pom poms)

5th claim, 3 sent, 3 rec'd

Hi, I'm Teresa and I live in North Georgia with my sweet husband of 33 years and our ragtag collection of rescued farm animals, cats, and one crazy little dog who is pretty sure he runs the place.  I've taught Young 5's at a private preschool for 22 years.  If I seem a bit silly at times you have to remember that I spend an awful lot of time with five year old kids.  
I don't have any actual allergies but I just despise the smell of smoke (cigarette, pipe, and cigar) on anything!  I'm not overly fond of the scent of lavendar either.  My list consists of thing for eight or so different people so it really doesn't help to go into my favorite colors, styles, etc...   I will note preferences for each item on my list.
Please don't claim me for a surprise and please don't claim me for anything that isn't on my list or for something on one of my Pinterest boards other than the ones listed below.  Thanks!

 Crafts:
* Anything for an American Girl doll.  Dresses, pajamas, shoes, purses, pants, costumes.... anything goes!  Any color, any style, anything you are willing to do will thrill me!

* XL full apron in a cobblers or smock style in some sort of retro looking (think 70's) floral.  I am 5' 3" and don't want it to be too long so let me know if you want any measurements.

* Wonder Woman sock monkey

* Anything for a baby or toddler.  I am collecting  things for future grandchildren so really anything goes.  There are lots of things on my Crafty Wishes Pinterest boards to use as inspiration.  

* Crocheted or knitted baby hats, especially interested in viking, giraffe, aviator, anything Star Wars inspired, Ravenclaw, minion (but anything cute will be just fine)

*An embroidered personalized bath towel.  Girls: Addie or Avery (pinks please) Boy: Reed (green/orange or blues)   Dog: Runt (blues)  

* A set of peg people: king, queen, prince ( I have a wonderful princess already)

* A cruelty free butterfly or insect display

* A dog bath apron for a woman who is 5' tall and weighs about 105 lbs.  Any color is fine but if you have blue that's a plus.

* A book safe made from a book on history, vikings, the plague, or really just any dark older looking book.

* A unique Santa ornament of your design.  Any medium, any style.

 *A dollhouse for a dollhouse.  I'm thinking something about two to three inches tall.  The "furnishings" can be drawn on the walls and floors rather than actually being 3D.  Really whatever you come up with would be great.

*Stained or Fused Glass ... pretty much anything.  I would love a small bee, an orange maple leaf, a spotted mushroom, something  abstract that's swirly and colorful.... anything... any size... (for the home, not jewelry)

* A wire spider web... any size, anything you come up with...

* Anything off of my OWS/OPS Biggest Wishes board.  Please stick to this board.  If there is something on another board that you really would love to claim me for, please pm me about it first.  We are probably downsizing later this year so I'm being really particular about what I bring into my home until that's all over.

Supplies:
* Thread heaven
* Plain pillowcases, hankies, hand towels... basically anything I can embroider on
* Fabric markers
* Coptic markers
* Ink pads
* Anything that you use for your art journaling that you think I would enjoy
* Buttons... always
* Fun floss cards (I love the hedgehog ones but would love any cute ones)
* Blank ATC's so I can try my hand at making a few
* Ball point paints (these are expensive and I don't know that you can buy individuals.  If you bought some and don't enjoy them I would love your leftovers)
*blank canvas... any size, any shape, any style
*Gesso
* 1" circular punch (not for a machine, just a manual one)
* Alphabet stickers... not words, just letters
* batting, interfacing, Insulbrite... anything along those lines
* A Michaels, Hobby Lobby, or JoAnn gift card is always welcomed.
*ball point paints (if you bought a set and they're not your thing, I'll be happy to take used )

Extras:
gluten free snacks and treats
old photos of anyone, anything for journaling
old postcards... sent or blank
Starburst Babies if you're in Australia (I would love you forever and ever and ever.....)
Teaberry gum
your favorite recipe (gf and/or vegetarian/vegan a plus but not necessary)

Thank you so much for claiming me!

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 (4 months).  I don't like cigarette/cigar smoke, no allergies to speak of. Our house is pet- and smoke-free.

My favourite colours are black, dark teal, deep purple, dark brown, cream & taupe (sand, milk, stone, wool... think nature), and pink. I use those colours for the kids as well, plus lots of bright light green. I like plain fabrics, or patterns like leaves and 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 (almost) all handmade items (or at least pictures) from my list should be here: http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/craftster-ongoing-wish-swap/ (I still haven't linked everything yet!) Big wishes right now are here, but I have lots of things I want on other Pinterest boards, so if you find something there...

I call claim anna.wasnsinn for the bowling game due by 2/13/2014.
1/0/0
About Me:
I am a wonderful middle age woman, wife, mother, grandmother, face painting clown, gardener, dreamer, writer, friend, DIYer, fiber lover, crafter and want-to-be homesteader trying to live life on purpose in Central Oregon. I am not an expert in any field but I love needle and wet felting, sewing for my home and my grand kiddos, photography, creating wooden animals, dying fibers and fabric, paper crafting, cooking from scratch, growing stuff, trying to knit, furniture restoring, interior design and creating my own household supplies. I am so completely thrilled to be a part of this swap. I promise I will be extremely thankful for any bit of loveliness you send my way.

Likes:
Anything handmade with love.
I love natural fibers & materials. Wood, beeswax, wool felt & organic cotton are some of my favs.
I like all things vintage, especially Mid-Century Modern.
I like lots of contrasting texture with more neutral colors.
I’m in love with the color gold right now. My other fav colors are turquoise and orange.
 I love nature and bringing the outside in so natural items that I can’t get in Central Oregon are always a treat.
Feel free to check out any of my Pinterest boards but my board called “Wishlist for Ongoing Wish Swap” includes all of my current wishes.  http://www.pinterest.com/jetrip/wishlist-for-ongoing-wish-swap/  
The first three sections of my wishlist are my priority although I would be thrilled with anything for the list.
I am so excited and looking forward to receiving lovingly made items from my wishlist. Currently, I am trying to build up my collection of Waldorf style toys for my playroom and seasonal nature table area.
Thank you so much!!!

Dislikes:
We have allergies so please limit scented items. Fortunately pets don’t bother our senses just strong smells.
Plastic stuff made by children in poor countries.
Acrylic, polyester and other petroleum based fabrics

I claim ClemiesGirl for a set of dish towels (11,2,6)

Hi! I'm Summer from Texas. I am mom to 3 amazing boys 14, 9, & 9. 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.

I like clean classic lines and I would describe my style as country chic. My favorite color is brown, and I love the "hot" accent colors that are mixed with it to give it some pop - pinks, blues/turquoise, and reds.

I claim texscrapper for a WALL-E and EVA hoopla!
5th claim/1 sent/1 received

texscrapper - WALL-E and EVA hoopla - due 2/12
underthemountain - embroidered t-shirt for Lana - due 2/10
spikefan - backseat organizer - due 1/31
Watsonc7 - something Tardis/Doctor who - received
kittykill - valentine necklace - sent


My name is Karen and I live in Austin, TX with my teenaged dd Dominoe (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).  Target or Old Navy t-shirts are awesome! 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 60’s mod to beach colors.  Blues/greens/tangerine/black/white/deep red. Please no neon colors or pastels, or pink.

My pinterest is a mish mash of tutorials and ideas for me and things that I want.  Feel free to look there for inspiration and if you spot something there that you would like to make, just PM me!  http://pinterest.com/luckdragon/   

OR you can surprise me if you think of something that you would like to make - I'm sure I will love it!


Thank you in advance for picking me!!

I claim luckdragon for tree art a la jemimah
(7/3/3)

Hi all!  I am 31, I live in Texas (USA), and my household is me, my husband, and our two puppies.  I'm a freelance grant writer and non-profit consultant and work from home in my pajamas. Husband is a teacher.  We don't and can't have kids, so puppies are the stand-in: Gus is a dark brown chiweenie, is deaf, and has severe allergies (we have to give him immunotherapy shots); Bening is a blonde-ish maltipoo mix of a bunch of things and is seriously emotionally sensitive but a sweet, happy, healthy girl.  They are both 3 years old.

No heavy smoke in any heavily fabric items, please, otherwise no allergy concerns.

Likes:  Damask, high contrast, lace, toile, blues, purples, greens, grays, black and white
Dislikes:  Browns, orange, animal prints

I am totally good with a surprise from my Pinterest or Wists:
I also have a wist http://wists.com/rockmygypsysoul and a pinterest (which is where much of this comes from) http://pinterest.com/lutmerjm/swap-y-stuff-i-wish-i-could-do-that/ and those are totally free game.  

Plus if you just think of something that's awesome, too - I enjoy surprises!

Crafted wishes:

Anything at all related to: Disneyland's Main Street Electrical Parade (I do have a hoopla of the sign but nothing else), Harper's Island, Ghostbusters, Simon and Garfunkel, Harry Chapin, Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks, Gordon Lightfoot, Roy Orbison, IT Crowd, Jurassic Park, The West Wing

Anything based on my pups!  We love them and love stuff about them.  There are a couple things on my Pinterest and on this list, but I also have pics of them on Pinterest for anything else someone wanted to do - stuffies, amis, artwork, whatever!

Anything based on my husband and I!  Our initials (separately like MP & JL on a tree but also our LP last name (we both hyphenated)), maybe our anniversaries (we celebrate 2/11/06 1st date and 10/13/07 wedding), our phrasing "the husband/the wife", "mine", etc) - whatever you want to play around with.  Anything personal or romantic, for us as a couple or of one of us (like something for him with my image or sentiment and vice versa), or of the family (us and the two pups).  We just have come through a lot in our time together and we're just still really, really in love with each other (as corny as it sounds)

Anything related to or inspired by this poem http://www.pinterest.com/pin/237846424041615771/, this poem http://www.online-literature.com/frost/742/, or this poem http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/homage-to-my-hips/

- Seriously, I'm open.  Sewn items, hoopla, embellished stuff, totes and bags, wall art, jewelry, house stuff, I am totally open

I claim underthemountain for "a Rockmygypsysoul-esque portrait of Lana on canvas" 
(that just cracks me up to see that on a list  Cheesy)

(8/3/3)

Hi all!  I am 31, I live in Texas (USA), and my household is me, my husband, and our two puppies.  I'm a freelance grant writer and non-profit consultant and work from home in my pajamas. Husband is a teacher.  We don't and can't have kids, so puppies are the stand-in: Gus is a dark brown chiweenie, is deaf, and has severe allergies (we have to give him immunotherapy shots); Bening is a blonde-ish maltipoo mix of a bunch of things and is seriously emotionally sensitive but a sweet, happy, healthy girl.  They are both 3 years old.

No heavy smoke in any heavily fabric items, please, otherwise no allergy concerns.

Likes:  Damask, high contrast, lace, toile, blues, purples, greens, grays, black and white
Dislikes:  Browns, orange, animal prints

I am totally good with a surprise from my Pinterest or Wists:
I also have a wist http://wists.com/rockmygypsysoul and a pinterest (which is where much of this comes from) http://pinterest.com/lutmerjm/swap-y-stuff-i-wish-i-could-do-that/ and those are totally free game.  

Plus if you just think of something that's awesome, too - I enjoy surprises!

Crafted wishes:

Anything at all related to: Disneyland's Main Street Electrical Parade (I do have a hoopla of the sign but nothing else), Harper's Island, Ghostbusters, Simon and Garfunkel, Harry Chapin, Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks, Gordon Lightfoot, Roy Orbison, IT Crowd, Jurassic Park, The West Wing

Anything based on my pups!  We love them and love stuff about them.  There are a couple things on my Pinterest and on this list, but I also have pics of them on Pinterest for anything else someone wanted to do - stuffies, amis, artwork, whatever!

Anything based on my husband and I!  Our initials (separately like MP & JL on a tree but also our LP last name (we both hyphenated)), maybe our anniversaries (we celebrate 2/11/06 1st date and 10/13/07 wedding), our phrasing "the husband/the wife", "mine", etc) - whatever you want to play around with.  Anything personal or romantic, for us as a couple or of one of us (like something for him with my image or sentiment and vice versa), or of the family (us and the two pups).  We just have come through a lot in our time together and we're just still really, really in love with each other (as corny as it sounds)

Anything related to or inspired by this poem http://www.pinterest.com/pin/237846424041615771/, this poem http://www.online-literature.com/frost/742/, or this poem http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/homage-to-my-hips/

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 am not allergic to anything, except maybe rude and mean people.

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

Thanks ActsofCraftiness and spikefan!

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!!
B, C - - thanks anna.wahnsinn

thanks spikefan...I forgot what letters you are doing!

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,  N, D, A. S --any style would be great!  I REALLY WANT TO FINISH MY NAME TO DECORATE A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY CRAFT ROOM!!!
-my themes are: the color red, Asian-themed, insects, sewing, vintage, circus,

thanks spikefan...

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 - no limit on the amount of art, so please keep claiming this if you are so inclined! Grin

Thanks, Jo_mamafor claiming this!  

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!

thanks, anna.wahnsinn!

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!

No more Valentine--I am getting those already!  Thanks ActsofCraftiness for some holiday bunting! RECEIVED!!!

thanks kittykill for a surprise holiday decoration!

CAR SEAT ORGANIZER:  I have to have certain papers in my car at all times so I would love something hanging on the back seat to hold a file folder and a few other things like tissues, trash bags, etc.

Project bags:  what can I say...I love to knit and have several projects going at once...I would love some smaller fabric buckets, only large enough to hold a ball of yarn...with a drawstring top and a loop so I can put it on my wrist...I like knitting while standing in lines or sitting at the doctor's...


Thanks for claiming me!  I love this swap!

Last claim for me for Grand Round 100!  

I claim alwaysinmyroom for a few hearts, a small hoopla, and a bookmark

6th claim, 3 sent, 3 rec'd

Hi, I'm Teresa and I live in North Georgia with my sweet husband of 33 years and our ragtag collection of rescued farm animals, cats, and one crazy little dog who is pretty sure he runs the place.  I've taught Young 5's at a private preschool for 22 years.  If I seem a bit silly at times you have to remember that I spend an awful lot of time with five year old kids. 
I don't have any actual allergies but I just despise the smell of smoke (cigarette, pipe, and cigar) on anything!  I'm not overly fond of the scent of lavendar either.  My list consists of thing for eight or so different people so it really doesn't help to go into my favorite colors, styles, etc...   I will note preferences for each item on my list.
Please don't claim me for a surprise and please don't claim me for anything that isn't on my list or for something on one of my Pinterest boards other than the ones listed below.  Thanks!

 Crafts:
* Anything for an American Girl doll.  Dresses, pajamas, shoes, purses, pants, costumes.... anything goes!  Any color, any style, anything you are willing to do will thrill me!

* XL full apron in a cobblers or smock style in some sort of retro looking (think 70's) floral.  I am 5' 3" and don't want it to be too long so let me know if you want any measurements.

* Wonder Woman sock monkey

* Anything for a baby or toddler.  I am collecting  things for future grandchildren so really anything goes.  There are lots of things on my Crafty Wishes Pinterest boards to use as inspiration. 

* Crocheted or knitted baby hats, especially interested in viking, giraffe, aviator, anything Star Wars inspired, Ravenclaw, minion, Yoda  (but anything cute will be just fine)

*An embroidered personalized bath towel.  Girls: Addie or Avery (pinks please) Boy: Reed (green/orange or blues)   Dog: Runt (blues) 

* A set of peg people: king, queen, prince ( I have a wonderful princess already)

* A cruelty free butterfly or insect display

* A dog bath apron for a woman who is 5' tall and weighs about 105 lbs.  Any color is fine but if you have blue that's a plus.

* A book safe made from a book on history, vikings, the plague, or really just any dark older looking book.

* A unique Santa ornament of your design.  Any medium, any style.

 * A knitted infinity scarf in deep purple or a really pretty emerald green (nothing too bright) There is an example of the one I like on my Pinterest on my OWS/OPS biggest wishes board.  The person it's for doesn't like skinny ones, she always wears them nice and full almost like a big fat turtleneck.

*Stained or Fused Glass ... pretty much anything.  I would love a small bee, an orange maple leaf, a spotted mushroom, something  abstract that's swirly and colorful.... anything... any size... (for the home, not jewelry)

* A wire spider web... any size, anything you come up with...

* Anything off of my OWS/OPS Biggest Wishes board.  Please stick to this board.  If there is something on another board that you really would love to claim me for, please pm me about it first.  We are probably downsizing later this year so I'm being really particular about what I bring into my home until that's all over.

Supplies:
* Thread heaven
* Plain pillowcases, hankies, hand towels... basically anything I can embroider on
* Fabric markers
* Coptic markers
* Ink pads
* Anything that you use for your art journaling that you think I would enjoy
* Buttons... always
* Fun floss cards (I love the hedgehog ones but would love any cute ones)
* Blank ATC's so I can try my hand at making a few
* Ball point paints (these are expensive and I don't know that you can buy individuals.  If you bought some and don't enjoy them I would love your leftovers)
*blank canvas... any size, any shape, any style
*Gesso
* 1" circular punch (not for a machine, just a manual one)
* Alphabet stickers... not words, just letters
* batting, interfacing, Insulbrite... anything along those lines
* A Michaels, Hobby Lobby, or JoAnn gift card is always welcomed.
*ball point paints (if you bought a set and they're not your thing, I'll be happy to take used )

Extras:
gluten free snacks and treats
old photos of anyone, anything for journaling
old postcards... sent or blank
Starburst Babies if you're in Australia (I would love you forever and ever and ever.....)
Teaberry gum
your favorite recipe (gf and/or vegetarian/vegan a plus but not necessary)

Thank you so much for claiming me!
