Please pay close attention to your partners wish list and allergies, likes, dislikes etc. Make sure your own allergy information and your country are prominently displayed in your post.

Do not claim someone while waiting for approval. You may claim as soon as you get approval confirmation.

Have your list including both 15 medium crafted items AND 15 supply items ready before making your first claim (the more you have, the better your chance of getting claimed quickly).

If you are a friend of craftster you can have 3 unsent claims open at a time and no more than 6 total claims open (open meaning in transit as well as not yet sent) no matter how many have been posted. As an example, You claim 3 times, send all 3 packages, then claim 3 more times. Even when you send any or even all of those 3 claims, you can not claim again until a claim has been received. So a person can be 6 claims/3 in transit/0 received. Or 6/6/0 or 8/5/2 or 7/5/1.

If you are not a friend of craftster, you can have at most 2 claims unsent and 4 claims total between unsent and in transit. So 4/2/0 is okay or 5/3/1 or 6/4/2

If this is your first swap, You can have at most one claim in transit and one claim unsent. 2/1/0, 2/2/0, 3/1/1

Please keep in mind that DC#'s are required for all US to US packages and receipts are required for all international packages. If you can not provide a receipt and the package does not arrive you will need to resend the package.

Claiming Grab a coffee for paper punches and gemstones

Hi, I'm Sylvan!
I'm a Girl Guide Leader in Manitoba, Canada. I love crafting and camping, and teaching my groups camp/survival skills, though I spend most of the latter time doped up on anti-histamines. :p

I am going to be ridiculously upfront. I am horrifically allergic to scents of ALL kinds, natural and synthetic. Perfumes(including laundry soaps), pot pourri, flowers, animals, smoke... If it smells nice or bad, I'm probably allergic. With most things, if I can clean it, I won't get an allergic reaction. I wipe hard items with vodka (it kills the enzymes that cause the reactions) and toss soft items in the washing machine with my unscented soap.
I mention the vodka because a couple items on my list may need paint. To avoid discolouration, please seal paint or put a note in saying it may need to be sealed. I will do a spot test before wiping it all over. Wink

Now, if you haven't been scared off by that... :p

I claim rscowtown for Dachhounds hoopla and something peacock for her sil.  

1st claim
0 sent
0 recieved.

Hey there.  I live in the U.S. with my dear hubby, sweet kiddo and a young playful pug.  Allergies are in our house, but shouldnt affect anything sent to us because the allergies are mostly dust, grass, pollen, mold and other outside things.  We do have a cat allergy in the house and sinus issues though, so please no strong smoke smells.  Cat friendly homes can claim us, just please try to limit the cats contact with the items.  Anyways, my crafty skills include crocheting, knitting, embroidery and simple sewing, simple shirt stenciling/screen printing.   I am dabbling in chain mail bracelets now too, but a total newbie in this area.  I had not much interest in jewelry making, but someone on Craftster had to mention chain mail, and I was curious what it was.then.I was like Hey, thats cool.  I bet I could make those for Christmas gifts.  Hmmm  And well, we all know how everyone here on Craftster are good at enabling others to do more crafts.so thats the story.  LOL.

Themes: 1950s, Harry Potter, Pugs, Video games, Nerdy, Pirates
Colors/patterns:  black/red/white, purple/blue, tan/teal, polka dots, kawaii animals
Others:  Sock yarn, self striping yarn, reading, I love lucy, The big bang theory, handmade ceramic mugs and bowls,

Themes:  adult, creepy,  
Colors/patterns: orange, yellow, pastel  or neon.  Old grandma floral fabrics, 70s style fabrics, batiks,
Others:  fun fur yarns, strong perfumy scents, lace & frilly things, doilies, puffy paint, glitter, fabric paint that cracks and chips.

If yarn is sent or things made with yarn please make sure its machine washable and dryable.  With two shedding dogs, all things must be washable to help remove their fur.
-Magic yarn ball.
-Scrabble Tile Pillows that spell LOVE.  Im a little picky about these.  I had some that were painted, the paint cracked.  So I would like the Letters to be sewn on the pillows using black felt.  Just the regular machine washable and dryable felt though.  And you dont have to stuff them though, just make them like pillow cases.  The backs can be the pocket fold kind or a zipper closer.
-Jurassic Pug stenciled shirt.  Juniors medium, crew neck in perhaps a heather grey or white. https://www.etsy.com/listing/173745273/jurassic-pug-jumper?ref=sr_gallery_9&ga_search_query=pug&ga_ship_to=US&ga_ref=auto1&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery
-a set of 4 star wars coasters.  Would it be possible to have them made with those absorbant ceremaic tiles?
-Set of 6 Pug coasters using pictures of my own pugs.  Would it be possible to have them made with those absorbant ceremaic tiles?  I need a set of 6 for the kitchen.
-Pug species art.  8x10 or bigger. https://www.etsy.com/listing/153899272/art-print-pug-poster-dog-illustration?ref=sr_gallery_25&ga_search_query=pug&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=6&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery
-pug sculpture https://www.etsy.com/listing/176709729/lucky-pug-foo-dog-sculpture-in-zen?ref=sr_gallery_11&ga_search_query=pug&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=11&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery
-pug profile https://www.etsy.com/listing/106191149/fawn-pug-profile-with-green-background?ref=sr_gallery_29&ga_search_query=pug&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=29&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery
-Set of oven mitts that looks like a shark.  Please make them extra thick to prevent hand burns. http://collisionware.com/sites/default/files/shark%20main.jpg
-Set of oven mitts that look like pugs.  I guess sorta like the shark style ones, but pugs instead of sharks.  Id need a black pug oven mitt and a fawn pug oven mitt.
-Hollow book case for my kindle.  Bonus if you use an old antique looking book, or Harry Potter book, or Twilight book.
-Weasley Blanket squares.   For 2014 I am determined to actually make a knit item for myself.  I always knit for others, but never for myself.  Anyways, with that being said, this is a big project, If you would like to help me make my very own Weasley blanket feel free to knit me a square or two or more.  Just please remember to make sure the squares are 7x7 in size, made in worsted weight yarn, and yarn must be machine washable and dryable.  I own pugs and this is necessary to help remove fur from things.  Im guessing acrylic or cotton would be best.  Oh, and nothing itchy please, Im going for soft and cozy.   Anyways, with that being said below is the link with the pattern with the squares.  https://docs.google.com/file/d/1z-P2tmU9T9qh2PvS3IFrc0sw-U7cGI6PZIgFRf_RIVpXvKk94Psb5IS-UsiQ/edit?pli=1
-fabric bins. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279493743477/
-Quilted place mats.  I need a set of 6 for our kitchen table.  Maroon, hunter-ish green, white and black. http://www.needleandspatula.com/2011/06/spicing-up-kitchen-swap-placemats-and.html
-Stripey socks. Womens us size 7.5 http://www.pinterest.com/pin/220606081716634809/
-yarn bowl.  This style is neat.  Color is nice.  Or maybe a black and red one.  Oh yes! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/375135843931909527/

As always, all supply packages are great and Im happy to receive pre-loved items.
-PUL fabric.  Enough to make some diapers with.  Any color or design but solid pink would be great!

since I am up to my ears in crafty stuff I am going to claim missmoppet for a supplies package


My name is Lindy and I am 32 and live in Arizona with my boyfriend of 5 years, my two kids, and all our fur babies.  My daughter Adia just turned 13 in December and my son Landon will be 9 in January.  We have 3 cats and 3 dogs.  None of us have any allergies so claim away.
About me:  I like hooplas, altered spoons, things with my name or initial L on them, whimsies, mini shrines/altars, Day of the Dead, Harry Potter, Dr. Who, jewelry, Disney.

My favorite colors are deep purple, maroon, aqua/turquoise, pink, black, & silver.  I am not big on yellow or orange as the main colors of things.  I do not really like gold tone jewelry but will wear silver, copper, nickel, etc.

Hi! I'm Emma, living in Michigan USA right now. I've gotten my BFA in art, and now am biding my time working til I figure out my next move. I love weird, random things, inappropriate humor, and beautiful art. My favorite colors right now are teal, bright red, mossy green, deep blues, and blue-green. I love all colors except neons and pastels. Right now I've been super loving geometric art especially crystal forms and chevrons, topography,  I have no allergies, so no worries there. My pinterest and profile should give you a good idea of my style and preferences, but I'm super friendly so please feel free to ask me anything. Big wishes are IN BOLD Examples of a lot of the items listed below can be found on my pinterest.

Hi! I'm Olivia, and this is my very first OWS!  My husband and I have two boys ages 14, and 4, and a lot of my craft requests will be for them.  We live in sunny Southern California, USA with a handful of unusual pets, and a lot of houseplants.  I am allergic to wool and cannot wear anything that has the slightest bit of wool or animal fiber in it, but it's okay to use for crafted items that are not intended to be worn.  Here's my wishlist, and thanks in advance!
