I claim Grab a coffee for some stuff from her wish list  
1/0/0

Hi I'm Laurel from Wisconsin. Married to Mark for 30 years, mom to a boy 21 and girl 27 and grandma to a 4 year old. We have 3 rescued dachshunds, I love the old ugly ones that no one wants or ones with no teeth or had back surgery.

** Please pm me if you find something on my pin boards that isn't listed below, sometimes I pin stuff for ideas but may have already made the item and forgotten to mark it or just pinned it for a random idea.

WISHLIST STUFF: Have added new items to these lists
*Here are my swap/claim wish lists:  http://www.pinterest.com/rscowtown/oh-yeah-part-1-of-my-wish-list/
http://www.pinterest.com/rscowtown/oh-yeah-part-of-2-my-wish-list/

Other stuff that I like:
Dachshunds
Table runners, ours is 120 long but doesnt need to be that big.
Prayer flags
Dandilion art
Patriotic stuff
Stuff with the sun on it
Dragonflies
Religious phrases/bible verses that can go on the wall

SUPPLIES:

would love some of the spray inks, any brand any colors
tho I am partial to:
blues
purples
greens
yellows

Keys: im searching for keys to make these:
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653826478297/
so im looking for...
old house keys
old skeleton keys
old misc. keys but not blanks

100% cotton thread in the larger spool in white (for when I make the microwave bowl holders)
100% cotton thread "                " in off white or tan

seaglass pieces that are 1+" ish in size would be great, blues, purples, greens are my favs

metal stamping blanks--i have a hammer and an alphabet set, just need some metal to stamp on!

a set of the markers to write on mugs that you then put in the oven to set the ink, i keep seeing on pinterest that "regular" sharpie markers are not the right ones for this; I have some of the regular ones already.

chandelier crystals with hooks or holes in them. any shapes, they would be great to add to mobiles and sun catchers
    long skinny crystals
    shorter teardrop shapes
    clear/see thru
    or colors would be awesome too!

postcards with bible verses that we can send to fellow church members each month when we pick names for a family to pray for

I claim Kitty Kill for a Kindle Cover.  I feel im almost cheating cause I have a bunch ive already made and set aside (I make things and then set them aside in case i come across someone who might want one.  Kind of a crafted stash lol).  I think one is perfect for her!!!

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

Hello there !!  Been gone awhile as my computer died on me.  Finally got a new one and wanted to wait awhile before joining again to be sure i didnt buy a dud!!!  Ive missed these swaps something awful!!!

Im Tammy.  Im 42 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)

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~~

KNITTED AND CROCHETED

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.


SEWN

**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
http://www.victoriana.com/VictorianShoes/victorianslipperpattern.html

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> 

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").
 
~~Supplies~~

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
Simplicity~~

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)

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!!

I claim smileyyogini for a mala necklace (due out October 23)

1st claim, 0 in transit, 0 received

Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband Uwe and two sweet little daughters Lea (3) and Hanna (1).  I don't like cigarette/cigar smoke, but have 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, (they also get 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'm 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-list/. Big wishes right now are here, but I have lots of things I want on other Pinterest boards, so if you find something there... Also new: Jewelry wants: http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/jewelry-id-love-to-receive/ and T-shirts http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/t-shirts-i-want-to-make/ I love the two I've received so far and am wearing them constantly. Now I want more!

Sewn
O Infinity scarf
O Ironing board cover for small folding table http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381080/

O iPod cozy (for iPod classic) - maybe a star like this? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381063/ - or just a very plain pockety thing. Or I'd love one with a cutout for the wheel, but it doesn't necessarily need a window for the screen as it will live at my bedside.
O Wall organizer with flat pockets, colourful like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494587827/ or cream/sand, or whatever you think would work for me (have one exactly like this already, and I love it!)

O Quiet Book (closure learning type?) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494606323/

O Swiffer cover & Swiffer duster fleece thingies
O Tote bags - you can never have enough!

O Knit hat with owl pattern http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494719195//owl-hat-4  55 or 60cm (or really large for me) in grey or a nice cool brown shade
O Knit berry baby hat http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/berry-baby-hat for heads 50 or 55 (in a similar soft purple or strawberry red; if you add pips in the strawberry: yellow please!) (we already have a raspberry pink one!)
O Swiffer cover (I've heard they work great!)

Other
O Something to keep me going back to my books - I really need to keep going. Maybe a logbook, or something like a magic eightball, or one of those dice (thse with yes, no, later, etc. on it)? Anything.
O Blank notecards - mostly as thank yous and  cards for swaps, but birthdays, Christmas, or no theme greatly appreciated, too!
O Leather planner/organizer cover like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377730/ in A6 so I can put a regular notebook and a calendar in it (or like the smaller Moleskine flex). I love plain oiled leather in darker brown or black.
O Screen printing kit (I would so love to try this!)
O Pillowcase 16 inch square, some examples here: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381076/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381077/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381087/
O Mini Twister game (the mat for the fingers as well as the wheel thing) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377707/
O Bubbles necklace! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495383186/
O Mini hooplas/wall art for my room in the doll house (because there is no space for a real hoopla wall and I love tiny things!). So inchies or rinchies in your favourite medium.
O Cover for tablet with stand-up thingy (to look at sewing instructions while sewing...) (the bookish kind?) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494649573/
O Embroidery floss cards - plain, or shaped, painted, printed... lots of those! (examples on my Pinterest)
O Simple stamp design: cute ladybug or sparrow, about one inch (or smaller; I have a larger bird already!)
O Yarn bowl - this pottery one http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494249555/ is my absolute favourite (the colour, the little stars!), but I'd love one made from a wooden bowl too. Or even from a large plastic cup, as long as it's fun to look at and doesn't topple over or hop around the room while I'm working. (If it's large enough, I can always put a stone in as a weight!)
O Anything Labyrinth for me... crochet, knit, Fimo, sewn, embroidered, whatever, useful or just pretty...
O Calvin & Hobbes - again anything "pretty" and/or useful
O Something Care Bears! But from the original series please, not the bobbleheaded new ones.
O Something "Where the Wild Things Are"... loved by me and my daughter!

T-Shirts
I love the two I've received so far and am wearing them constantly. Now I want more!
I prefer a round, wide neckline, so a scoop neck or boatneck would be best (don't like anything too close to the throat). Deep V-neck would be okay, too. And I love 3/4 sleeves (or long), but tees or tanks are always fine, too. Love both cotton with a bit of stretch as well as cotton only; also very thin fabrics. Women's plus size 24/26 or 3x. As for colour, black/white/grey is completely fine, as are any of my other favourites.
If possible, I prefer stencilled/drawn/painted/appliqued/embroidered etc. over iron-ons, because these tend to get destroyed in our washing machine, even in the wool cycle.
Themes: Anything you think might work for me, or see here for ideas: http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/t-shirts-i-want-to-make/
O XKCD t-shirts (baby, natural parenting, grownups)
O Rickroll shirt for me - something like this, or completely different... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494328944/ Or can just be Rick Astley, without rolling...
O Again anything Labyrinth for me... Jareth, or a quotation, or... preferably in black and white (or a teeny bit glittery?)
O Calvin & Hobbes (I love: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495095892/)

Supplies (scraps or used is fine!)
O DMC floss: any of these numbers for two projects:
starry night over the rhone: 158 159 160 161 162 169 318 414 612 726 729 798 809 3822 3823 3838 3839 3840 3865
midsummer eve: 931, 936 (3), 935, 904, 890 (3), 319, 924, 895 (2), 469 (2), 930, 3363, 3346, 700, 826, 782, 3790, 610, 907, 704, 470, 3052, 3012, 372, 437, 3046, 725, 959, 522, 833, 834, 727, 819
O Fabric paint (favourites: black, white, dark teal, dark purple, dark brown, pink; but need the regular colours as well to make shirts and pillowcases with the kiddies) (can also be glittery, metallic or pearlescent) - I'd love the kind that doesn't have to be ironed to fix the paint
O Fimo soft (all the colours!)
O Plain white silk scarves, shawls, foulards, handkerchieves etc. for me to paint
O Always: fabric! (esp. solid black!, teals; or smaller patterns)
O Sewing thread (my favourites are Gtermann, Coats, Madeira; I use cotton, polyester and blends) at the moment I could especially use reds, purples, (both warm & cool, esp. dark), pinks, as well as basic primary & secondary colours
O Binding or bias tape (handmade, patterned?)
O Calendar stamp http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495066678/
O Metal stamping blanks & stamps (heart, star!) (oh, anything really, I only have very plain alphabet stamps)
O Embroidery floss bobbins (plain, or patterned)
O Twill tape
O Papers or cardstock (plain, glittery or pearly): Would love 12x18cm / 5x8in, can use smaller, especially in teal, cream, turquoise, black, pink/rose or brown (to be used as planner pages/dividers, for cards etc.)
O Books/magazines on (bead) embroidery, sewing (doll clothes, kids, or women plus size)
O Sewing patterns for kids clothes & doll clothes (American Girl, and baby 12inch)
O KamSnaps
O No sew snaps (refills; no tools needed) (Prym) smallish preferred
O Very large eyelets (1/2" +)
O Seed beads in 11/0, 15/0, delicas
O Wooden or glass beads from 3mm to 10mm, any colours/shapes
O Beading supplies, especially a small bead scoop, chain, charms, headpins (flat and ball, silvertone or black)
O Tea tins / tea caddies (to be used to hold craft stuff) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377711/ and http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377711/ (love tea urns, too, but those might be not ideal for overseas shipping)
O Anything really (bedsheet, pillowcase, notebook, eraser, pens, stamps, stickers...) from these: original care bears, forever friends, curious george, very hungry caterpillar, barbapapa, moomins, gruffalo, cars (esp. mater, sally & lightning mcqueen), mickey & minnie mouse

I am claiming anna.wahnsinn for beads and beading supplies.
This is my 3rd claim this round, 0 in tranzit.

My name is Eszter from Hungary - Europe. I'm 34 years old, living with my husband and my 3 years old son. I am working 10-12 hours per day now, so it's a bit hard, but I always can find time for crafting. I would like to detash things, so please fill your supply lists too Smiley
I know there are a lot of stuff on my list, which is too big for international mailings, but I would like to keep everything in one list. My plan is to have a full handmade Christmas! Also, we are planning to buy a new house this year, so there are some stuff around that too. (Fingers crossed)

I claim Grab a Coffee for some boy shirts Smiley

1/0/0



Hi my name is Linda and I am in my 20s and I live in Australia.

I am a bit coy about personal information posted publically as I am a secondary school teacher.  Feel free to ask if you need to know any details I will PM. I studied fine art at university and used to be a journalist.

I love art and design, martial arts (karate), reading, cooking (vegetarian), metal and concerts, outdoors and gardening, being unusually clean at home, organization and quirky things. I have no pets or kids and I dont smoke.  My house is small and new so Im still fitting it out a bit. My brother is also in the same situation, so I can also use home-related gifts for him.

I love things which are functional, can be put on the wall or which dont need to be put on a shelf. I dont have a great deal of shelf space for knick knacks so theyre not really my kind of thing. I always paint my nails and have an offbeat dress sense. I dont scrapbook. Love to travel.

Tattoo flash is some of my favourite imagery. My favourite tattoo artists are Sasha Unisex, Tilly Dee, Ben Koopman, Brad Hampstead, Mimsy Gleeson and Clare Clarity.  I also love geometric designs, lino print style imagery and most other visual art.

I dont like girly, pink, orange/yellow, kawaii, floral (unless its a bit funky - think Marimekko), ruffles, lace and other cutesy things. Its just not me. Im also not into creepy-cute, glitter, dandelions and clich images like the infinity symbol. Not into patriotism or wiccan themes. Not into dolls (especially those Blythe dolls and other cutesy things like that).

All my allergies are food related so please don't send food.

I love dark colours, texture, nature, geometrics, turquoise, green, blue, black and white, deep purple, silver, black, grey, blue and deep red. I also love texture and natural things.

www.pinterest.com/schnerby

Things I would love to receive:

-   Wall art. I love receiving other peoples art. Painting, embroidery, printmaking, photography whatever! I have some beautiful art on my walls from Craftster swaps and I have plenty of wall space left. Any size and any media.
It's ok if I need to do some work and mount, hoop, frame... whatever!

KNIT/CROCHET
- Loose-ish beanie (I have a ponytail and don't like them tight)
- Small face washing cloths for the shower
-   Slippers, socks or house shoes. Feet sz AUS9-10/EU40-41
- Anything knitted with cable. They're so pretty.
- Cushion cover
- Cuff
- Tea cosy for my pot (this is my pot http://www.t2tea.com/shop/teaware-2/tea-pots/4-cup-tea-pots/new-leaf-1-1l-black/ )
- Cowl

SEWN/FABRIC
-   Fabric boxes for storage or organisation. Any size
-   A centre mat or table runner for my table. Measurements can be provided (its a four person table so its pretty small). I have red cushions on the chairs.
-   Table cloth
-   Heat pack for the microwave
-   PJ pants. Cotton, flannelette, some other fabric, summer/winter, just over the knee/three-quarter/full length. Whatever! I love them.
-   Mug-rug style or fabric box things for my bedside table to put little bits in
-   Hoopla - whatever takes your fancy. Also ok if it's not in the hoop and I will frame it.
-   A reasonably padded case for my Macbook Air. It's currently nude (scandal!)
-   Unpaper towels or any other things to save waste and love the planet
-   Sturdy shopping bag (you can never have too many in the car)
-   Those reusable netting bags for veggies so I dont have to use plastic when I shop

MISC
-   Coasters. Seriously, why dont I have any of these?
-   Tea towels. Any colour
-   Hand towels (neutral earth colours and olive greens)
-   Scented candles. I love warm scents, vanilla, fruits etc but not really floral scents.
-   Tea and tea related stuff.
-   Cards blank inside multipurpose preferred. Not too much pizzazz or sparkly business ☺
-   Something to organise my newly acquired desk. Its just a plain 60s table so I need a mouse pad, things to put pencils in, things for papers. Absolute blank canvas so far!
-   Gift tags simple and plain decoration please
-   Simple stamp to make easy gift tags (perhaps to stamp on thin recycled card and cut out that way I have plenty)
-   Prayer flags
-   Picture frame. Plain, textured, whatever. All the frames in my house are black so far so I guess stay with that. I stick them on the wall with removable Velcro stickers or removable sticker hooks.
-   Things for assisting with or making pretty in the garden. I have a watersaving native garden, citrus and veggies/herbs
-      Recipe organiser
-      First aid kit container thing for the house or car. I'm ashamed to say I don't have either so I just have bandaids loose in the cupboard.
- Art supplies (paper, ink, pencils, brushes, watercolour, pens - especially waterproof, markers, printing stuff)
- Art supply organiser of any description (except brush roll. I have a few of them)
- Microfibre cleaning stuff
- Some way to make my karate bag not stink like something has died in it  Shocked
- Stationery


Or, something inspired by my Pinterest ☺ or even just a happy surprise.



I use business cards and those free postcards many places have in my design classes. If you have any cards lying about I would love to adopt a few.  Smiley


Australia has strict biosecurity and quarantine laws. Please, no feathers, wood, seeds, leaves, soil, fruit etc. If you have any doubts, please ask and I'm happy to help with the rules. I have had a package taken by quarantine and you don't get it back!

I claim Schnerby, for a kusudama ball

1 Claim, 0 in transit, 0 received

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, 2 guinea pigs, a toad 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 am a huge fan of Loki, 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.

We have no allergies here (other than awful ragweed allergies... but can't see that as much of an issue in swap packages)

Please feel to claim me for anything on my Please make this for me boards on pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me/ http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-knitcrochet/ or http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-embroidered-bits/

I claim Averia for a thing that we talked about before Wink

1/0/0

Hello, Im Kirsten, I live in New Zealand. I'm married and I have an elderly cat called Pepper.

I love art and I like to do drawing, painting and printmaking, as well as sewing, knitting and embroidery. My job can be quite intense so I like to balance it with more creative time.

Colours: my favourites are blue/green/teal/aqua, natural tones, greys, muted colours, or black and white. I like most colours, but I'm not so fond of multicoloured, rainbow-ish brights, or pastels.
Metals: silver, copper or gunmetal.
Fabrics: plainish and textured rather than very patterned. Natural linen, monochromatic prints rather than very multi-coloured. Some styles I particularly like are mid-century modern, Scandinavian, Japanese (but not kawaii). I really like the combination of natural linen and bright fabrics.

I dont have any allergies. I prefer natural fibres, but not exclusively.

I tend to like simple and arty things, I dont really like very cutesy or girly things much. The things on my Pinterest boards will give you a good idea of the sorts of things I like. Id rather have things that are inspired by than exact copies its great if you can put your own creative spin on what you make! my pinterest

Big wishes in bold (if that's helpful), but anything on the list (or inspired by my pinterest wishlist) is welcome. I love surprises too, but because I live in an apartment, please make it something that has a function rather than a purely decorative item. Thank you!!


CRAFTS

SEWN
* set of placemats and/or table napkins machine washable please. Silver/grey, or black and white, or natural, or green.
* a pockety project bag I always have several projects on the go, different styles and sizes always welcome
* organiser things (e.g. project holder, thing for storing small supplies and bits) any size. Some ideas on pinterest, but other styles are good too.
* fabric buckets/boxes any size, big or small. Short handles are useful, but not essential.
* paint brush/art tools roll or folder/holder thing
* tissue box cover (standard rectangular, not square), natural linen colour, or silver/grey, or black and white would be best. Or nice greens. one idea here but other styles fine too
* microwave bowl holder like this but different colour
* kitty thread catcher like this doesn't have to be red gingham, another nice fabric with the natural/linen would be great
* dead redshirt pincushion something like this (I lost my previous one Sad)
* black or grey clutch purse/wristlet - smallish but big enough for wallet, keys phone, lipstick etc.


YARN/FELT RELATED
* knit socks (I know this is a huge wish ...)
* if youre interested in knitting something, these are some things I want in my ravelry faves (I dont necessarily want all the other things in my ravelry faves though) ravelry wants there are some smaller things like hats and mitts in there, and a couple of crochet things too (crochet things). Some good colours for knits teal blue, dull greyish rose, chartreuse, rich or dull red (not too orange-y or dark please), blue-ish purple. I like solid colours rather than variegated yarn.
* felt fingerless mitt things example 1 example 2


PAPER RELATED
* stationery notecards or paper, its all good (bonus points for classic Star Trek or Dr Who theme!)
* handmade sketchbook


OTHER CRAFTS
* airbrushed art on fabric - on a plain piece of fabric for me to make something with - dalek, retro sci-fi, robot army, trees/leaves
* handmade ceramic item, esp. in celadon green (but any colours are good) coffee mug, little bowl, something useful


VARIOUS CRAFTY POSSIBILITIES

* a Miniature Tiger Monkey. (This imaginary creature has been the subject of several conversations in my household. Apparently they move extremely fast, so fast in fact that no one has ever seen one. And they are very small.  I would really like to see what they might look like Wink)
* a Star Trek or Doctor Who thingy, whatever you like to make, my faves are Spock, tardis and daleks. (Useful rather than decorative is usually my preference, but any Spock, tardis, or dalek item that lands in my letterbox will find a home). Some ideas Tardis journal; daleks on anything; Spock stationery, journal.
* things to put other things in box, organiser, project holder, stationery folder etc. always welcome I could use some nice things for my desk at work.
* something inspired by Leonard Cohen
* a retro UFO or raygun item of some sort

* or a pinterest-inspired surprise


CRAFT SUPPLIES

* interesting embroidery supplies (please stick with quality over quantity, Id much rather have a tiny envelope with a few lovely skeins/little things than lots of cheap floss/beads, and it's also cheaper for postage!) The sort of stuff I like is DMC, anything silk or linen, Au Ver Soie (lurve!), Japanese stuff, bits for goldwork (purl, kid, etc.), handmade/hand dyed, quirky things. Vintage/second hand is fine.  No Aida please. thanks everyone - I need to use up some of my stash now! Smiley
* nice cotton or linen fat quarters or fat eighths
* nice paper - e.g handmade, japanese, printmaking, watercolour, textured, any colour or weight - it's for art and printmaking, so plain rather than patterned is best.
* small art supplies items:-
     - pencils, markers and pens (Prismacolor/Derwent/Caran D'Ache/Posca for example, or similar artist grade things think quality rather than quantity, just a few nice things would be fab! and cheap to mail). Derwent Inktense pencils/sticks. Art supplies can be very expensive here.
     - inkpads, little stencils, stamps, etc.
     - MaimeriBlu watercolours oh how I want some more of these, and no one stocks them here Sad
* thick stampcarving material
* 100% wool felt (I have stacks of ordinary synthetic felt already though) in greys, blues, greens, purples, red
* plain linen or wool fabric (natural, grey, green, blue)
* freezer paper


EXTRAS
* I love vintage/interesting buttons, ribbons, cord etc.
* no candy (its too expensive to mail, and I really don't need it!)


NB. New Zealand has tough biosecurity at the border. This is very unlikely to apply to this swap, but just in case ... Please dont send natural materials (feathers, leaves, wood, seeds e.g. lavender, etc.) Everything on my list is absolutely fine to send, but PM me if youre unsure about something. Thanks  Smiley

I claim Jemimah, for a linen tissue box cover

2 Claims, 0 in transit, 0 received

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, 2 guinea pigs, a toad 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 am a huge fan of Loki, 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.

We have no allergies here (other than awful ragweed allergies... but can't see that as much of an issue in swap packages)
