Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): NO
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
Age requirement? 16+

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES


Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: FOCs - YES, Users with Negs - Not necessarily.
- Is a Friend of Craftster OR has negative feedback: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: NO this swap is specifically set up to help those members with negative feedback. Smiley
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES

Details of swap:

If you would like to participate, please read ALL of the information in this post thoroughly.

Though there are quite a few Craftster members who have negative feedback, angel opportunities can be hard to come by.  We've run three previous versions of this swap in order to provide opportunities for those members who needed to clear their negative feedback.  However, since there are so many members who still need opportunities to set their accounts in good standing, we have decided to run this swap again.  

As with the previous versions of this swap, Friends of Craftster in good swap standing and users with negative feedback (who have NOT been banned from swapping) may participate. Here's how it works:

Friends of Craftster:

As long as you are a FOC (with no negatives of your own) when you post your list, you are eligible.  Since you will not be sending in this swap, you may join even if you are at your 5 swap limit. You may only post once and once you have been chosen, your list will be moved to a locked thread for reference. Unlike most swaps, for this swap you will need to post your wishlist FIRST and THEN PM your sign-up questionnaire to BOTH rackycoo AND alteredmommy. (Yes. BOTH. on the same pm so we can each see the other has it) Due to our method of tracking, this will be easiest for us. If you are found to be ineligible, your post will be removed without notice.

Remember, the more realistic your list, and the more items you include, the better your chances of getting chosen! If you are chosen, your list will be moved to a locked thread and your swapper will send you a few items from your list. The swapper will choose one large or two mediums, and then two of your small items. When you receive, you will pm rackycoo and alteredmommy so we can fix your sender's feedback, and then you will post in the gallery and include a nice thank you message to your sender. Feedback will not be entered for this swap, as FOCs will not actually be swapping and senders will be getting a negative removed from their profile.

Because this is not a regular swap, there is a chance that either you will not get chosen, or you might get flaked on after you are picked. Please note that there will be no angels for this swap. If you don't receive, though, there is no loss as you will not be sending out items to your swapper.


Users with Negative Feedback:

You do not need to send a PM to sign-up. Just PM your completed questionnaire to rackycoo and alteredmommy once you've chosen a list. Give us the name of the FOC you chose, and we'll send you the address.

Please send to one FOC per negative you've received. You do not need to clear all of your negatives during this swap, but you are allowed to clear multiple negatives by choosing up to two lists at a time. Please choose one large or two mediums, and then two of small items from each list. If you have more than two negatives and you are able to send out two nice packages before the end of signups, you may choose two more lists at that time.

Once you have selected a Friend of Craftster to send to, PM your questionnaire to rackycoo AND alteredmommy (Yes. BOTH of us) the relevant questionnaire below.  You MUST PM rackycoo and alteredmommy each time you choose a list and each time you send. When you send your package you must purchase Delivery Confirmation if you are sending within the US. If you are sending within or between any other countries you will need to provide a scan or picture of your receipt when you send. This is not required in regular Craftster swaps, but will be required in this swap.

Who's sending to whom:

Once your package has been received, one negative will be changed to positive.  The previous organizer comments will remain, but we will add that you successfully completed the FOC Second Chance Wishlist swap to redeem your feedback.

If you claim someone in this swap, you will need to complete your obligations. If you do not send a package to someone that you claim you will be permanently banned from swapping. This is in line with current swap rules.


All participants:

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/236931630367838412/

--Wall art in any medium, I have many examples on my Pinterest
http://www.pinterest.com/soapsbymaremare/

--Knit or crochet boot cuffs in neutral colors. Probably XL size

Smalls:

About Me
37 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and three cats.

  • My favorite colors are jewel tones (like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber) or earth tones (like greens/browns together).
  • My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy.
  • My favorite colors for shirts/clothes are browns, greens, purples, and both heather and charcoal greys.
  • I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together
  • I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.)
  • My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes.
  • My favorite flower is the Daffodil.
  • I love nature and trees
  • My favorite movie is Back to the Future
  • My favorite hobbies include: reading, photography and I love all things Disney!

ALLERGIES
I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.


 Grin = big wish

Sewing (Examples of Fabric I like)
> Grin Steampunk leather fingerless gloves These are so cool! (Could be pleather too)
> Grin Superhero hand towels Specifically GREEN LANTERN or CAPTAIN AMERICA for my guy. (He'd LOVE them!)
> Harry Potter Owl Plush OMG so cute!!
> Steampunk Lace Cuff Bracelet. Neat idea!
> Sewing Surprise There are tons of sewn things on my pinterest as well!


Knitting & Crochet
Grin > Boot Cuffs! Like 2-in-1 boot cuffs or this kind of style in colors like a marbled brown, taupe, ivory or charcoal grey.
Grin > Crochet Sheldon Cooper Ami as a gift to my guy.
> Enterlac cowl I love those colors too!
> Dragon Scale Crochet Shawl these colors are pretty or other combo too.
> Grin Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. (And yes, simple thick ones for around the house are perfect too!)
> Hanging Bat Plush Little hanging knit bats are so adorable!!
> Grin Crochet Parasol or Granny square parasol So pretty! Can be rainbow, or tones of blues, or blues/browns, or purples or earthy (greens/browns) colors. I just love this idea in general!
> GORGOUS Knit Shrug. I love cables. I'm sure this is stupidly, massively huge, but I love it so much I'm putting it on the list anyway. LOL
> Knit or Crochet Surprise Item - You can find more items HERE on my knit/crochet pin board.

Embellished Clothing
INFO FOR ALL TEES: Fitted styles only please! (i.e. not the boxy unisex style) If Misses, size small. If Jr's size medium. I like jewel tones for shirts (emerald green, amethyst purple, turquoise, aqua) plus browns and greys best. Short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve or long sleeve fine. Scoop or V-neck best (but not so low I have to wear another shirt under it please!) I like Target's Mossimo shirts a lot but other brands are good too. ANY OF MY LIKES/THEMES ARE GREAT SOURCES OF INSPIRATION!

>  Grin Decorated/Screnprinted/Stenciled/Bleach Pen/Embroidered Fitted T-Shirts Could be in many styles/colors based on my likes or shirt inspiration.
>  Grin Batik/Dyed/Ombre/ "Shibori-Dyed" Fitted Tee Shirts Could be in many styles/colors based on my likes or shirt inspiration.
>  Grin Galaxy Shirt! I love this. I think either black tee, dark navy blue or dark purple tee is best for the base shirt color. I can't be around bleach (allergic to the vapors) so I can't make this for myself but I'd love someone to make one for me!!
> Bleach Pen Tees Could be in many styles/colors based on my likes or shirt inspiration.
> Embroidered Shirt I really like this idea. Doesn't have to be exact but I think that's a great place to start. Maybe flowers, trees, branches, etc.? Front back, both - I just like this idea a lot.

Glass, Ceramics, Pottery, Etc.
> Beautiful Footed Mug I love the style, design and colors.
> Cat stained glass So cute! I have an orange kitty too.
> Blown glass tree bead So pretty! And I make wire trees and moons so very fitting.
> Stunning Serving Bowl Don't think it gets any more beautiful than this.
> Birch Tree Mug I love white birch trees.
> Ceramic Oversized Soup Mug I've got several I love pinned here.
> Ceramic/pottery/glass wish/surprise item Examples of glass items HERE and ceramic items HERE

Hoopla, Embroidery, Needlework
> Grin "Damn it feels good to be a gangster" hoop like THIS or THIS. Too damned funny!!
> Phoenix Feather Hoopla. Love this in a red/orange/yellow color scheme!
> "M" Hoopla I love the font, the detail, everything about this example.
> HOOPLA SURPRISE I've been pinning some so take a peek and see if you get inspired!


Other

> Grin Anything with a phoenix. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items or phoenix pinned items as inspiration.
> Grin Daffodils - Spring always makes me think of my favorite flower, the daffodil. They don't grow here in Florida so I've got some wisted daffodil items here to help usher in Spring.
> Castle Building Block Rubber Stamps These are so cute and clever!
> SURPRISE ME! Look at my my pinterest or my amazon wishlist, my etsy favorites, the colors I like, my favorite animals, or my favorite flower, etc. and see what you can make that you think I'd like!


Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

    Smeddley's List

    I'm a 40-year-old engineer living in Kansas with my husband and my dog.  Geeky and nerdy doesn't even begin to describe me.  I knit and crochet at baseball games (go Royals!) and our D&D games.  Love sci-fi and really cheesy horror movies.  Read a lot of mysteries.  Bellydance at nursing homes (they just like the sparkle, we don't have to be great, so it's low stress).

    Allergies: Hemp.  Please no hemp fibers or oils! 
    Dislikes: Real animal bits.  I'm okay with leather and feathers and sometimes fur, but not fond of things like bones.  It's an awkward line.

    First, pretty much anything off any of my "Swap Inspiration" boards, or craft-specific boards (obviously, the "received" and "made" boards are... well, things I have!).  Or anything similar that you can think of.  Or anything that might go with a swap item I've received in the past!  Some of the greatest things I've gotten aren't things I specifically asked for, so feel free to use your imagination!

    Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/smeddley/ (the only thing I'd probably not want is amigurumi, I do a LOT of that and am swimming in it - I say that, but then the Mega Piranha pouch I got in a swap is one of my favorite things ever, so... it's more a vague suggestion, really).

    More specifically (the list kinda tries to start from small up to large, but it gets all jumbled)...

    ATCs, I'm collecting them!  I have a few "Art I Like" pins, but to be honest I like a broad range of art, from dark and macabre to very cutesy.  Pretty much anything goes there.

    Needlebooks, you can never have too many!  I like lots of styles and am getting a bit of a collection.

    Pincushions, I don't quite have one for every desk yet, and that's rather a needed thing, since the other place I store pins and needles is random places on my clothing... ouch!  I have a board full of style ideas

    Stitch Markers, again, with so many WIPs, you can never have too many!  I have a board with a few ideas, but feel free to let your imagination go wild there

    Bookmarks, I really like the ribbon style, like these.

    Hair sticks or knitting needles, embellished with beads, etc like these.

    Pencil boxes, pouches, cases.  Have art supplies, will travel!  I do really like this fish one, for some reason...

    Coasters, I'm fighting a losing battle with water stains and my furniture, but I'm still trying.  I would adore a set like this.

    Tiny zippered coin purse! Soooo want one of these!

    Bracelets, wrap style, 7" for single wrap.  Some style ideas on my beading board.

    Hoops!  Glorious Hoops!  Obviously, anything inspired by any of my boards, not just my cross stitch and embroidery board, but also there are a few I've made and given away I wouldn't mind having one of!  These in particular: The Birds, Mr Fox, Grammar, As You Wish, Profanities - NSFW

    Bags of all sorts, shapes, and sizes.  I particularly love this shopping bag and will NEVER have too many.

    Sock Monkey, I'd love a Dr Who, Captain Mal, or Shaun sock monkey, but there are lots of others I'd love as well!

    Poppet - while I do have two AMAZING bellydance poppets, I love poppets and would like more!  Any character/type from any of my boards.

    Journals, again, something I can't get enough of!  This is a particularly amazing example.

    Original artwork.  I love original artwork!

    Altered ponies, especially like this bellydance pony!.

    Pot holders, I really like these, style-wise, but anything relating to any of my likes would be great!

    Miniatures!  Anything tiny, especially things for my new Cabinet of Curiosities.  Themes for the cabinet are: Poisonous plants, Potions, Mushrooms, Old books, Voodoo, Moths, Steampunk, Odd medical devices,  Anything else you think of that seems to go with the aesthetic of the others, since I'm sure I'm forgetting things!  Also, small, peg-people sized things in general, like furniture and such as I'm kind of working on a peg people comic book thing.

    Thanks for looking over my list!  Cheesy

    Hi there!  Summer here.  Between myself, my son, and dear Hubs, there are a ton of possibilities.  We all get easily excited and tend be easy to please. Goldfish, peacocks, cute monsters, or geeky things are always a safe bet with me. Kiddo loves Minecraft, Kingdom Hearts, legos, penguins, cats, superheros, science....a lot, just not skulls. Hubs is a Trekker, Whovian, and Browncoat (We all are, but he REALLY is) and I am in tons of Geekdoms!  Seriously, I have 14 Geekin' boards.  The only hangup is that I'm allergic to latex, so no balloons or rubber please!  If you are unsure, just ask!

    What would I like?  Well, since you ask:
    My   Pinteresthas a TON with boards for Yarn Related, Sewn Crafts, and Assorted Crafts.  Hooplas and Badges(some of which could easily be turned into plushies) are also there alongside Stuff I collect, but don't have.   My Son and Hubs

    Large Wants:
    *Plushies- Pick a character from one of the shows, or just get inspired by my pinterest.  Ones that have a hidden purpose, like as a mp3 holder are amazing and will send me over the moon. A goldfish pouch would be wonderful.
    *Bags/Messenger Bags or Backpacks- As long as it can be used it can be as crazy as you want, there are a ton on my pinterest.
    *My son as a anime/manga character would be extra special.  He loves Kindom Hearts and wishes he was in it. Any type or size of craft is fine.
    *Notebooks for writing/sketching ideas in or sort of journaling
    *Hats or hoods for keeping the head warm.  My whole family could use some, especially with earflaps.
    *Socks or House socks mismatched, funky, characters, whatever you feel like.
    *Hooplas- Please, my wall needs more!
    *Pillowcases
    *Wall hanging craft tool keeper.

    Medium/Smalls
    *Medium or small zippered pouches- Any kind really. Here is one as an example, go as crazy as you want.  Goose even has a duct-tape one on his wish list.
    *Earrings- My ears are pierced and I like the ear ivy kind that climb up, or dangly ones, or studs....pretty much anything fun or shiny.
    *Plushies- As simple and small as you like.  I keep some in my purse for entertainment while we wait.
    *Buttons/Badges- pick a Quote, Geek thing, or something else altogether. I cover my purse with pinback buttons.
    *Hair accessories, like soft headbands, elastics or hairsticks.  My hair is waist length and the ends are usually some jewel color like teal or purple or fuschia.
    *ATC cards- Goose is starting to collect them and trying to make his own.
    *Dust plugs for my cellphone
    *Notebook covers for spiral notebooks.

    Or
    *Something related to Firefly/Serenity, MegaTokyo, Harry Potter, Star Trek (any of them), Shakespeare, Microbiology, Chuck, Flash, or Doctor Who.
    *Anything else you find yourself drawn to making that you think my family would like.
    We also LOVE tasting interesting candies and goodies, although Hubs is the only one that tried the BarBQue flavored crickets.

    I'm always looking for neat buttons, yarn, crochet hooks, fabrics, and notions.

    Hi! I'm Sara from Honolulu, HI, USA, and I teach middle schoolers for a living, so it's fun to stop and think about happy things!

    I have a pinterest, in case you want to get a sense of me ( www.pinterest.com/mountainsclouds ), but I'm pretty easy going and usually love lots of things.
    Thank you all for looking through my list. Smiley



    Likes: Bright colors, bold colors, earth tones. nature, gardening, being outside. tiny things. Maps.

    Dislikes: I'm not sure I have any, but please be aware that agricultural restrictions could prevent a package from arriving if it contains any plant or animal matter.  (Especially seeds, soil, moss, etc.)

    Feel free to swap sizes--- these are just approximated guesstimates.

    Large:

    -Any bag.  I always have things that need carried around.

    - Wall Art: our walls are a bit bare right now.  Any media/material would be great.  I love trees, green things, Miyazaki-esque drawings...

    -Beach bag- any color, but I like to be able to spot it from the water!

    -A cat bed or something fun they can hide in (We have 2 cats)

    -a Poppet.  I have one that I love from another craftster, but I think she needs a friend : )

    -Clothes for my Blythe dolls. (Vintage Skipper patterns usually fit well, and there are some free patterns to be found online.)  Pants, shirts, dresses; anything is fine!  I always tend to use more warm weather clothes, since the weather is warm here, but coats,etc. are fine too!

    -A hand-drawn map (maybe for on the wall!) of a real or imagined place!



    Medium:

    -Props for dolls.  My Blythe dolls are always happy to receive anything from furniture to a rug or blanket to wall art.  (They are approximately the height of a barbie doll, for scale)

    -Shrine/altered tin. An ode to the moon or trees is nice.

    -a fun tote bag. Again, I always have a need for bags.

    -altered matchbox.


    Small:

    -ATCs!!!  I love collecting ATCs.  Any theme is fine.  (Or if you really care, some of my favorite themes I collect are moon on a string, mermaids (original, not Disney), I Dream of Jellyfish, your local coffee shop, and your location.  But again, I love any and all art that you create!

    -Small hair accessories/clips (for the dolls)

    -prayer flag (more with an earthy theme rather than inspirational)

    - Tiny things!

    - faery doors, furniture, etc. for the garden.



    Supplies:

    -Fabric with small print (can even be fairly small remnants- for doll clothes : )

    -papercrafting things such as xacto blades/knives, and bone folders

    -hand sewing needles

    -sketchbooks

    -yarn (any kind)

    -safety eyes

    -"pink stuff" for stamp carving

    Hello there! I'm Jessica from North Carolina. I live with my husband and our two buff tabby cats Castor and Gemini. I am a structural engineer in the telecommunication industry, but my hobbies are the various crafts I've shared on Craftster, birdwatching, gardening, traveling, baking, hiking, video games, board games, and hosting dinner parties. I love whimsical woodland inspired items and natural and rustic colors and materials. I really appreciate when crafty gifts are functional items that I can use everyday and get the most enjoyment from.

    On my Pinterest there are several "Crafts I Want" boards with different themes - General, Mixed Media Jewelry, Bird-related, Woodland-themed, altered things

    My favorite colors are blue, green, and beige.

    My favorite themes:
    1. whimsical woodland - deer, raccoons, squirrels, owls, acorns, gnomes, mushrooms, bees, trees. especially birds and other species native to North Carolina. In the style of Mister Finch also is fantastic.
    2. Alice in Wonderland or tea/tea parties in general
    3. rustic nautical - driftwood, scuffed/dark blues and greens, mermaids, rusty anchors, shipwrecks, faded stuff.
    4. Shows/moves: Doctor Who, Sherlock, Firefly, Bee and Puppycat, Game of Thrones, the Hobbit movie trilogy, Miyazaki films
    5. Video games: Paper Mario, Pokemon, Animal Crossing, Bioshock Infinite, Minecraft

    And lots of fabric I love can be found here.

    ***No foxes at the moment because my house is literally overrun with lovely fox decor.

    Large Items:

    Shawl or cowl in natural colors or one of my favorite colors, or similar to one of these: chunky with hearts, owl shawl, stripped shawl
    Art doll/plush or repainted/custom doll similar to Monster High with an earthy theme, similar to these:  paimonia, Moonglow
    Table runner in rustic themes, seasonal themed (winter or spring), simple multicolor one in my favorite colors, or similar to one of these: weathered wood runner
    An ironing board cover.
    Knitting needle roll.


    Medium Items:

    Fingerless gloves
    in natural or favorite colors
    Cozy for my coffee press (4.3" diameter, 9.8" high. See here for handle location). There are a variety on my general Pinterest craft board
    Ear warmer head band thing. (I'll be climbing towers this winter, and it gets coooold up there!). Not too bulky because it has to fit under a helmet.
    A set of garden herb markers.
    A mug rug in any of my themes, or a simple multi-color one in my favorite colors.
    Pencil case, similar to this tree log one or one in my favorite colors/themes
    Project tote bag (for knitting or felting).

    Small Items:

    Altered serving or cooking spoon in one of my favorite themes
    Tea towels or kitchen towels in favorite themes or similar to one on my Pinterest boards.
    Simple pendant necklace on a chain, similar to any of this Pinterest board
    One or more crocheted pinecone (or knitted), like this, in varying shades of brown.
    Prayer flags similar to the ones from recent swaps on Craftster in one of my favorite themes.

    Thanks for looking! Good luck on your package, and I wish you the best! Smiley

    Hi, I live in Florida in the USA with my hubby and pet birds.    Thank you in advance for whomever chooses me!    Cheesy


    Loves/Likes:
    My favorite color is minty aqua.  I also love tiffany blue / robins egg blue minty green/blue.  Im not a fan of sky blue though, even though it is similar to robins egg blue. I also love black, silver, aquas, cooler colors (purple, blue, green) in jewel tones. In jewelry I prefer silver over gold color.   I like longer necklaces (22" to 24")   I like shiny and sparkley things. I love birds particularly chubby song birds and chickens (prefer hens to roosters).  But I also love crows and ravens.  
    Pinterest board with fabric/color/fiber examples of things I like:  http://www.pinterest.com/craftybirdy/likes-fabrics-yarn-colors-fibers/


    I also love period pieces (like Pride and Prejudice, Downton Abbey), fantasy art, reading, rainy days, mushrooms, music.  I like to knit and crochet. I love gaming like World of Warcraft. Harry Potter is probably my all time favorite movie and book series. Although I also love Twilight too (books and movies).   Food (baked, jams/preserves etc), handspun yarn, yarn, fiber/batts/roving, natural dyed yarns/fiber, bold colorful yarn/fiber, fabric (bonus if dyed by you!), Christmas ornaments, coffee, cute sheep, cute mice, handmade buttons (with holes for sewing onto things), strong fridge magnets (rare earth magnet strong) of various things like resin with glitter.   Rain, winter and fall, velvet, dragons (fantasy not eastern), books, reading, chocolate, fantasy literature, sea glass, windchimes, music, Christmas, stained glass, handwritten letters, Harry Potter, Gryffindor

    Dislikes:
    strong scents and cigarette smoke. Politics. Orange, yellow, pink, neon, skulls, sock monkeys, pinup art or zombies (particularly the type with gore and blood), crucifixes, lace, country themes, clowns, baby dolls or doll parts, gory/bloody stuff, body part things (anatomical hearts, eyeballs etc), houndstooth print, animal prints (leopard print, cheetah, zebra etc)


    Allergies:
    I am fairly certain I am allergic to mohairit feels like glass on my skin.   Sad
    Strong scents and cigarette smoke give me migraines.    Sad

    Have fun and thanks for crafting for me!    Smiley


    Sewn

    * Linen coasters like these:  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/249879479298177843/
    * circular needle organizer any of these are great! This one, this one, or this one
    * DPN needle organizer this one is awesome!
    * Corduroy bird coasters love these!
    * bifold wallet like this one no magnetic snaps please. And I'd like it to measure less than 4 inches by 4 inches. Im not too keen on this fabric either something more minty aqua would be lovely.



    Embroidery

    I like blackwork or full color embroideries. Smiley

    * Embroidery of one of the quotes or verses on my pinterest board:  http://www.pinterest.com/craftybirdy/crafty-things-i-am-wishing-for/
    * Cute bird embroidery Id love this as a hoopla or embroidered on to things (bags etc.) Birds can be in different colors. Pattern is linked here.
    * Embroidered Always, Snapes patronusI love everything except I would prefer a different fabric color like a deep midnight blue or black. This is Professor Snapes patronus with the word Always from Harry Potter.
    * Realistic bird embroidery
    *  It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live
    This is a quote from Harry Potter by Albus Dumbledore and it is one of my most favorite quotes. I would love this embroidered.

    Hi I'm Laurel from Wisconsin. Married to Mark for 30 years, mom to a boy 22 and girl 27 and grandma to a 5 year old. We have 3 rescued dachshunds, I love the old ugly ones that no one wants.

    *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 or received it and forgotten to mark it or just pinned it for a random idea.

    I like: pretty much any color or color combo, tho i favor blues, patriotic, and peacock colors (blue/green/purple); daisys, lily of the valley, tulips; Bible verses; uplifting stuff

    I do not want: clowns, roses, kiddie prints, cats, did i mention roses? And clowns? long, but true story Smiley

    Allergies: cats and smoke

    WISHLIST STUFF:

    Here are my swap/claim Pinterest boards:

    http://www.pinterest.com/rscowtown/oh-yeah-part-of-2-my-wish-list/

    and a gift Pinterest board:

    http://www.pinterest.com/rscowtown/123-make-for-gifts/   that I can give to others; i have a box in my craft room marked "gifts" and when i make something or an extra, I toss it in there so I can give it to someone.

    Knit and Crocheted stuff:

    Crocheted cacti (i can stuff and pot them):   http://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653828349364/

    do you knit or have a friend who does? I would love to receive any of these knit scarves:

    Sewn items:

    Orphan quilt squares--if you have some that long for a home, I'll gladly take them in, any size, pattern or colors

    I would also love some pin cushions in tea cups; if you find orphan cups, thats fine, or glue the cup to the saucer. This way I can take it room to room if I bring sewing out into the living room or into the bedroom. I would like 2 or 3 if you can.  NO ROSES PLEASE!!!!!!! sort of like this:  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/507288345497429361/

    Hi.  I am Brenda from Southern California.  I work as an IBI assistant in a special education autistic preschool class.  I love every minute of it!  I just celebrated my 9th wedding anniversary in September.  I have a 15 year old stepdaughter who lives with us.  She is a sophomore in high school this year and on the track and cross country teams. I do not have any children of my own but have my two nephews and my best friend's 4 children who are all a huge part of my life. We also have 2 cats and a dog.

    We have no allergies.

    I am pretty open to anything except extreme gore, religious items, or food with faces (not vegetarian, just don't prefer a cake with a smiley face LOL)

    **All links are merely for inspiration, does not have to be exact duplicates**

    I live in Canada and I'm a stay-at-home wife  Grin

    I like bright colors, except for mint green and baby blue.  We have a family joke about pink so if you can work hot pink into the craft, that would be fantastic (a wee tiny bit would fit the joke best.)  Family friendly items are best for me, not overly girly though.  Nothing gory or dark themed either.

    A few themes I like:  snowmen, penguins, happy scarecrows, summer flowers and hearts

    My Pinterest is HERE

    I would like:

    Mug Rugs - I use them all the time and am in need of ones with hearts, summer themes and fall themes.  Check out my Mug Rug board for styles I like but don't be limited by just those patterns, make anything you think I'd like.

    Bookmarks - featuring any of my themes above

    Knit socks - ladies size 9, in bright colors

    Knit Gloves - ladies large in medium pink, mustard yellow, dark grey or black.  Something not too bulky as I drive with them.

    Knit Sweaters - I collect tiny knit sweaters and if you want to add to my collection that would be fantastic!  By tiny, I mean 2-3" in length.

    Knit Dishcloths - I can crochet these but prefer them knit.  The brighter, the better!

    Snowmen - You really can't go wrong making me something snowman related - I have a Snowmen I'd Like board and would love anything from there.

    Long Wall Quilt -  On my Quilt board are some ideas of what I like - this is one thing I don't want snowman related as I have plenty already.  I have an area in the house where I hang these and like to change them every month.  Summer, Fall and Spring themes would be appreciated.
     
    Hoopla - I have a Hoops board for ideas but, again, make anything you think would suit me.  I also have a Funny board and would be very happy if you took something from there and made it into a hoop.

    Handmade Christmas Ornaments

    gotgrey's list:

    I live in Oklahoma City, OK.  I am allergic to cats, cigarette and cigar smoke. But, it's okay so long as your crafting materials and finished crafted items do not come in contact w/them.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE stuffed animals!  I collect them.  Especially knitted and or crocheted animals as I do not not knit or crochet.  You can look here for inspiration: http://www.pinterest.com/gotgrey/stuffed-animals/
    or here: http://www.pinterest.com/gotgrey/amigurumi/
    I also collect toys.  You can look here for inspiration: http://www.pinterest.com/gotgrey/toys/
    I love dolls.  You can look here for inspiration: http://www.pinterest.com/gotgrey/dolls/
    I love quilts.  You can look here for inspiration: http://www.pinterest.com/gotgrey/quilts/
    I love jewelry.  I love to wear necklaces w/pendants, earrings, and rings.  Feel free to PM for sizes and any ?'s.  I love animals and nature.
    I love reindeer and collect and display them all year round.  
    If you see something on my pinterest that inspires you, go for it.
    I love all colors except for extra neon, or putrid colors.
    I do like hats, mittens, gloves, scarves, and cowls.
    I never have enough: plastic safety pop together doll joints in all sizes, plastic pellets for weighting, black/white/brown thread, acrylic paints, small canvas', jewelry findings, beads, E6000 glue, miniatures, embroidery thread in all colors, hoops, stuffing, soft cotton/flannel/minkee,minkey, quilt fabric, fake/faux fur, plastic safety animal eyes, patterns for making sewn dolls and stuffed animals.
    I do not like: anything made from animals which includes their teeth, bones, real fur, feathers, claws, wool, angora, or animal fats.  I'm a vegetarian. Gross, gory, bloody, zombies, vulgar, inappropriate nudity. 
    I do not wish to receive clothing.
    Forgot to add: I LOVE LOVE LOVE greyhounds, Scottish deerhounds, afghan hounds, borzoi, and wolfhounds.  They are all sighthounds.  The greyhound in my avatar is my late greyhound, George. Also, standard poodles and olde English sheepdogs.
    I'm pretty easy to please.  Again, feel free to PM me any ?'s you may have.  No ? is off limits.
    Thank you for choosing me!

    Hi all!  I am 32, 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 4 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 (unless decor or my livingroom), orange, animal prints

    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

    Sewn and/or Embroidered and/or Cross-Stitched - If it can be made with crochet or knitting, that's totally cool too - I'm very open to medium

    - Crayon rolls like http://www.etsy.com/listing/150627682/crayon-roll-matryoshka-dolls-babushka?ref=sr_gallery_26&ga_search_query=crayon+roll&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all  I actually need one with at least 7 spaces and another one with at least 24 spaces (for my charcoal and soft pastel sets) VERY flexible on fabric purpose is far more important than visual here
    - Ruffle pillow like http://pinterest.com/pin/277604764502192543/ in white, soft or clear blue, gray, black, or white
    - Flower pillow like http://pinterest.com/pin/277604764503942926/ ideally in a pretty blue, gray, white, or black
    - Dandelion pillow like http://www.pinterest.com/pin/277604764504052495/ grays, black, white, blues, and sage are our livingroom colors (for the background - white is perfect for the dandelion)
    - Dog stuffies!  similar to http://pinterest.com/pin/277604764501691712/  I would totally be happy with a dachshund but in an ideal world he would have a slightly longer tail and pointy chihuahua ears which is like Gus, our chiweenie! (this would be decor for me, not a toy for him)
    - A dog harness (I can send measurements - it would really need to be a custom fit cause my baby boy is built oddly)
    - A dog leash or jacket indicating that Gus is deaf
    - Bird pillow (perfect as is!) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/277604764502195357/
    - Bird on a wire pillow http://www.pinterest.com/pin/277604764504343459/
    - Gangster cross stitch http://www.pinterest.com/pin/277604764504721334/ - flexible on design just love the typical cross-stitch look with the lyrics!

    - Custom dog pillow - holy crap we would die for these https://www.etsy.com/listing/173614415/great-pyrenees-lab-mix-custom-dog-pillow?ref=sr_gallery_27&ga_search_query=custom+dog&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all we have two pups - you can just do one or one pillow with both, whatever you want!!
    - Set of cute coordinating towels, bath sheets, hand towels, whatever like http://www.pinterest.com/pin/333688653612401821/ - very open to pattern or design; bathroom colors are peach, mint, and white
    - Set of placemats or a table runner similar to http://www.pinterest.com/pin/333688653611525135/ but with silver, white, cobalt, and/or pale aqua
    - Quilt topper (I can finish it) similar to http://www.pinterest.com/pin/277604764502590516/ with JL + MP and with red instead of pink
    - Envelope dog bed! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/277604764505193506/ very flexible on colors but prefer not too pale so it can cover a multitude of sins

    - Coasters like http://www.pinterest.com/pin/277604764504371903/ but yellow, cobalt, and/or white
    - Messenger bag a la http://www.pinterest.com/pin/277604764504294498/ but with a VERY long strap as I am a very large woman!

    Yarnies - Knit or crocheted makes no difference to me!
    - Cable-knit pillows or blanket!  Open on colors but would love a throw with a great quality of yarn to snuggle up in!
    - Slippers like https://www.etsy.com/listing/128899493/crochet-slippers-pattern-family-slippers?ref=sr_gallery_30&ga_search_query=crochet&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=3&ga_search_type=all - I'm open to the style, I just like ones that come up to my ankles - size 9

    Paper Crafts
    - Quilled wall art with a simple word or a letter or two letters
    - Quilled piece like this (just some elements of it is totally fine - I know it's massive!) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/333688653612230973/
    - Paper wreath similar to http://www.etsy.com/listing/93004250/wreath-assorted-paper-roses-you-choose?ref=sr_gallery_11&ga_search_query=purple+paper+wreath&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all - it can be any types of flowers and almost any colors (I'm not a huge fan of orange or orangey-yellows as the main color but otherwise dramatic and bright is what we love!)
    - Handmade cards for birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Flexible on styles and I always need masculine ones!
    - Handmade journals or sketch books - art journal is great but plain paper is fine too, I just love handbound journals!
    - Quilling kit!

    Glasswork
    - Glass ornaments like these http://www.pinterest.com/pin/333688653611527448/ or these https://www.etsy.com/listing/165766929/lampwork-icicles-121-clear-aqua-glass?ref=sr_gallery_24&ga_search_query=glasswork&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=2&ga_search_type=all

    - Would LOVE glass napkin rings!!  White, cobalt, yellow are dining colors so whatever you want in that palette is okay by me   Smiley

    Jewelry
    - Double strand anklet - similar in style (something relatively dainty) to https://www.etsy.com/listing/152084509/pre-order-ships-in-2-3-weeks?ref=br_feed_14&br_feed_tlp=jewelry but NOT with the infinity sign.  I'll measure for my preferred length but be aware it will be longer as an anklet for a BBW!   Wink
    - Druzy pieces - long necklace or earrings - prefer blues, purples, or greens

    Crafted/Other (not to minimize any type of craft but just if I don't have many wishes for a particular category
    - Lace wrapping paper (can be folded no problem!) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/277604764504055495/

    Hi! I'm George (ina) and I live in Chester, England.

    I love rock music and anything nature from the elements to ants! Cheesy
    Favourite colours are browns, blues and greens, and black.
    I really love quirky things, bugs and insects, steampunk and generally grungy things.

    I have a pinterest www.pinterest.com/phizzychick filled with lots of the weird and wonderful that might give you an idea of my likes.

    Some things I would really appreciate receiving, though anything on my pinterest would be lovely...

    Altered tank tops (UK12/Medium) - cut, sewn, bleached, tye-dyed, anything interesting!
    Top with library-style dates stamped on it
    Really weird/unusual/chunky jewellery (nothing gold coloured)
    Anything with a goat - art, sculpture, stuffy...
    Anything with insects on/insect related
    Knitted bees - http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/honeybee-2
    Knitted snail - http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/snails-and-slugs
    Cockroach plush - http://verypurpleperson.com/2011/03/cockroach-plush-tutorial/
    Fabric buckets - http://filminthefridge.com/2012/11/23/round-bottomed-fabric-storage-buckets-a-tutorial/
    A scrappy art doll
    Vampire related artwork or decorative stuff
    Mushrooms - fabric or paper
    Apron (I particularly love the wrap around kind or a gathering apron would be fab!)
    Paper ephemera of any and all sorts
    I'm making a crazy quilt in warm colours so any fabrics for that would be wonderful! Pink, orange, reds and purples.

    Thanks for reading and considering my list! Smiley

    Hi! 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.

    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 to beach colors.  Blues/greens/tangerine/black/white/deep red. Please no neon colors or pastels, or pink.

    Any of my pinterest boards with wishes or want in the title are fair game (although the sewing one needs to be cleaned up).  Feel free to look there for inspiration and if you spot something there that you would like to make, go for it!  Feel free to PM me with any questions.  http://pinterest.com/luckdragon/   


    SEWN:

    DR HORRIBLE or DOCTOR WHO (10th doctor) or Luna Lovegoode PLUSH!!  OK, this is probably a super large, however, if there are any plush dollmakers out there, my daughter would absolutely love you!! Something like the ones SpeakGeekAndEnter makes http://www.pinterest.com/pin/275564070923918083/

    Hi, I'm Bonnie, and I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  I am a nurse, living with my partner in crime of almost 23 years, and our two dogs, Ginger and Troy.  I love dogs, dogs, dogs, trees,  birds, crafting, Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, Anne of Green Gables, Muppets, Discworld, Monty Python, cooking, gardening, crime shows, reading, etc.  Patterns and styles I like include artists like the Group of Seven, Emily Carr, North West Pacific art, Rick Beaver, Sue Coleman, Sharon Girdwood, Asian inspired art/patterns, Tim Holtz style mixed media.  I love things where there is a hidden message, image, or joke.

    I love bright, jewel tones of blues, greens, purples, reds, grays, blacks.  I normally hate oranges, pinks, yellows.  I am really creeped out by things like spiders, clowns, cherubs/angels.  I am not into dogma or organized religion in any way, so would prefer not to receive with any religious overtones.  Also not into gory things or nude things. 

    I am allergic to cats, can't wear wool near my neck, face (no wool scarves, mitts, jewelry), and normally don't wear jewelry because of my work.  I am sensitive to some scents, so would prefer nothing with an overly sweet or musky scent

    Things I would like to receive....

    -  Garden art of any kind - signs, decorated pots, windchimes, reuseable garden spikes/labels (I have grease pencils), candle holders, whatever you can think of
    -  I would love any stained glass anything
    - knit or crocheted cotton scrubbies or washcloths for the kitchen
    -  thin wool socks - oddly enough, the itchies, etc are all around my torso and face, but I can wear wool socks and hand knit ones are soooooooo comfy, durable, and great for when we go hiking with the dogs  (around a size 6-7)
    -  scrub tops (size on request - I am a larger lady)
    -  decorated scarves (non-wool) - knit, embroidered, painted, dyed, however you want to make it - I love fine scarves for the warmer weathers too
    -  reusable snack bags/pouches
    -  reusable/decorated napkins/cutlery holders - something for the home, or something for my work lunchbag
    -  any art of my dogs, Ginger and Troy (and my heart dog, Toby who passed away - pictures on request)
    -   bookmarks - I never feel like I have enough
    -  a hoopla for my hoopla wall
    -  small swear hoopla (s) - I have a little collection of them, for my craft room
    -  little dog poo bag holders that we can fill and pop into a pocket, or hang off the dog leash (we use Flexi leashes normally, but have regular nylon or metal leashes in the car too)
    -  water bottle holder for when we go on hikes (could incorporate a little pocket for poo bags, or some cash)
    -  hand carved stamps
    -  creative note cards - general (I like to add notes to my swap packages)
    -  lavender sachets for the drawers
    -  tote bags - small or large for shopping, or books
    -  needle books
    -  signs for the door or the kitchen - I may have some examples on pinterest - snarky is good - but even simple "no solicitors" or something like that
    -  Anything creative - be it an altered piece, ornament, or whatever with either birds, trees, Fall, Winter, dogs... or anything inspired off my pinterest - I just love being surprised Smiley
    -  recipe books - I love sharing in other people's tried and true recipes too
    -  polymer clay decorated knitting needles, crocheted hooks, pens, tools, etc
    -  wood or metal cutlery caddy/napkin holder of some kind - for holding utensils/napkins/paper towels when we have BBQs
    -  Cute magnets, especially ones with a really strong hold

    If anyone is interested in sending anything non crafted, there is lots of inspiration on my pinterest - I would love any ephemera - paper, tickets, tokens, buttons, charms, beads, maps, old books, old sheet music, used stamps, used cutting dies, small tins and canisters, old game pieces, feathers, skeleton leaves, bits of ribbon, fabric, papers, whatever!  I also love tea and coffee, and art related to same.

    I LOVE knitted items. I'm great at crocheting but cannot knit for the life of me.  I LOVE LOVE cables.  I don't know if that would be a large or not but anything with cables, cowl, mitts, socks, scarf, really anything.  I have a knitted board on my pinterest too.

    A cute dolly for Daysie, she loves babies!!

    I love these monster dolls.  Something like these would be awesome! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/5559199513829507/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/5559199514958180/

    Any handspun or handdyed yarn would be amazing!!!!

    Again, my pinterest is huge and I love surprises!!!  Thanks!

    Hi!  My name is Ginger and I live in San Diego, CA with my husband.  We don't have any furry children, but we do have TWINS on the way! They are both girls, and will be here very soon!  

    I have a ton of stuff on my pinterest, and just about anything on my ravelry queue is fair game.  

    I have a very kitschy, quirky sense of style. I love jewel tones for things around the house, but my favorite colors to wear are DARK purple, dark grey/charcoal, navy blue, and black.  I really like deep red shades too.  If you are making anything for the babies, please Please PLEASE NO PINK!  

    I'm a sucker for terrariums, foxes, amigurumi, pandas, chococat, kitties, boston terriers (we are getting one when we move into a house at the end of the year!) and jars of whimsies.

    I enjoy fabrics that have tiny patterns (which almost look like the designs that you see on origami paper), especially sashiko designs! retro floral patterns are pretty neat too. I also like black and white tiny polka dots.

    Sewn:

    -crib sheets.  Here's a pretty easy tutorial - http://www.theribbonretreat.com/blog/how-to-make-a-crib-sheet.html


    -I need knitting needle cases very badly. Especially one for DPNs.  I like how this case is constructed - https://www.etsy.com/listing/57170147/needle-case-needle-holder-craft-bag?ref=shop_home_active_17  I would prefer one that has a flap at the top to keep the needles in, and a button closure instead of a tie or ribbon.

    -Wallet http://oliverands.com/product/OLV-SS005HA1.html

    -Zip up bags for craft supplies

    Fiber:

    -Amineko cat. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/amineko-crocheted-cat

    -Magic loop teddy. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/magic-loop-teddy

    -Two pairs of baby sized mary janes in black.  These would be perfect! https://www.etsy.com/listing/75769202/crochet-pattern-210-baby-too-cute-mary

    -Knitted or crocheted amigurumi toys for the babies.  Please make sure that they don't have any beads/buttons on them (choking hazard!)

    -Baby beanies, preferably purple and made from wool.

    -French Press Felted slippers, size 10. https://www.etsy.com/listing/41507335/pdf-pattern-download-french-press-felted

    -Knitted socks, womens size 10

    -Fluffy bunny slippers, size 10 http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fluffy-bunny-slippers

    -My dear, a deer trophy http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/my-dear---a-deer-trophy

    -Mini fox scarf http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mr-fox-stole-my-heart--mini-fox

    -mug cozies like this one. https://www.etsy.com/transaction/162271470? Thanks Grab a Coffee!

    -Peekaboo mitts http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/peekaboo-mitts

    -Rikke hat. Preferably in a dark purple or dark gray variegated yarn.  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/rikke-hat  

    Jewelry

    -Embroidery pendants. I love the kind with little flowers, or maybe even a tiny fox.  This one is pretty cool https://www.etsy.com/listing/174854834/poppy-field-hand-embroidery-pendant?ref=shop_home_active_1&ga_search_query=poppy

    -Terrarium pendants (there are some on my pinterest)

    Household things

    -Handmade pottery mugs.

    -Little terrariums

    -Embroidery hoopla. I used to have a massive collection, but it all got destroyed in the move. Please check out my pinterest for ideas.

    -Throw pillow covers, knitted or embroidered. This one is perfect https://www.etsy.com/listing/62772666/hand-embroidered-linen-pillow-cover?ref=sr_gallery_33&ga_search_query=floor+cushion&ga_page=2&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade in dark purple or red

    -Potholders, knitted/crocheted or sewn.

    -Dishcloths/kitchen scrubbies

    -Embroidered napkins and placemats.  These are perfect - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/261560690831100196/  Free pattern here - http://www.feelingstitchy.com/2011/02/wanna-stitchalong-with-us.html.  I also like Scandinavian embroidery designs.

    Supplies

    -Vintage (or vintage inspired) ephemera paper

    -Yarn. I hate to sound like a brat, but I don't really use the stuff you find in big box craft stores (like michaels, joanns, etc) Madelinetosh, Malabrigo, and Noro are my current favorites. I also LOVE indie hand-dyed yarns...handspun is awesome too!

    -tshirt yarn for making rugs.

    -Czech glass beads

    -heart-shaped buttons

    -fabric scraps, fat quarters, jelly rolls, etc.

    -Jars of whimsies

    -glass tiles/frames for making pendants

    Misc:
    -Handmade soap.  I haven't had good experiences with melt and pour soaps, but any other kind is good.  Any scent is ok (even masculine stuff because my dude will happily use it) as long as it isn't heavily floral.  I really love honey-scented soaps. And fruity scents like strawberry.

    -Scrubs.  Salt, sugar, lip scrubs, whateva.

    -Lip balms, body butters.

    -Homemade jams, sauces.  We are vegetarian, so no gelatin please.  But we love pretty much anything.  Fall spices (like pumpkiny, cinnamon type stuff) are a big plus.

    I'm a huge sucker for chocolate and snacks from other countries.  I'm down to try anything as long as it doesn't have gelatin or meat in it, and it isn't super spicy.

    Thanks for looking! <3

    Hi. I'm Shannon and I live in the spooky city of Savannah, Georgia with Mr. P, kid 2, twin kids 3 and 4, and occasionally kid 1. Our kitty, Chaircat Mao, rules the roost despite being and outdoor resident.

    My likes include:

    Harry Potter (no brainer there): hoops, stenciled t-shirts, bookmarks, socks, hats, canvas bag for library books, ornaments

    Peg Dolls: I'd like to get a collection going. No particular theme.

    Irish: painted mug with snarky remark, hooplas with shamrocks, leprechauns, etc., dishtowels, anything really.

    Ideas using any theme from my Pinterest: Smallish art pieces to either hang on the wall or display in a cabinet, embroidered hoops, socks, apron, ATCs, ATBs, inchies, bookmarks.

    And a few more ideas: atomic Mid Century Modern imagery, vintage/scary Hallowe'en anything, knitted/crocheted hats, ninnis, stenciled t shirts, paper ephemera, post card from your hometown, Bruce Campbell, and surprises. I really like surprises.

    My Pinterest has all of my favourite things, and pretty much anything related to or inspired by something from there will be much loved.

    Thanks for taking a look!

    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.


    ***Sewn/Embroidery Crafts***

    wool dryer balls


    ***Misc Stuff***

    a necklace inspired by any of my jewelry pinterest boards

    I would love some sort of art that could be hung on the wall like MissingWillow's mousetrap death scene! Doesn't have to be the same kind of scene, but using small model figures in a funny scene sort of thing.
    http://www.pinterest.com/pin/220606081721756495/

    Mt. Dew wreath http://www.pinterest.com/pin/220606081720618601/
    (Or even just Mt Dew cans diecut into fancy shapes so I can make the wreath myself)

    your original handprinted FQs - can be any manner of screen printing, block printing, etc. I want to make a quilt with handprinted fabrics so am collecting for that  Smiley

    Funny cards for Christmas/Birthdays/Mothers/Fathers Day - I'd love something like this! An assortment would be great, or maybe 10 of the Christmas variety, whatever strikes your fancy.

    Hello all, Im Heather in central California. Ive been away from Craftstering and my internet friends for a while because Im super-busy keeping my head above water with grad school (Im a librarian/archivist in the making), job, homemaking, a big relationship, crafting for local people (something I never used to do because I preferred Craftster swaps!  Cheesy but I can't afford it these days), and self-care. Lifes good, though.
     
    My style runs a gamut of granola-bohemian-earthy, multicultural, vintage, androgenous, whimsical, sparkly, and functional. But writing the previous sentence is the most Ive thought about my style in the past two years, which probably says more about my style than the previous sentence. I love reuse, repurposing and upcycling, so I'm happy to receive clean, used materials. Please dont send things that smell of smoke, mildew, or artificial fragrances. If you'd like to make me something wearable, Im small-sized and petite (read short, haha).

    My Craftster profile has more info, and theres always Pinterest (the Inspiration boards are for my own reference, not wishlists), but also please feel free to PM me with any questions.

    My wishlist:

    Adornment
    - sweater chain, with reclaimed materials
    - unique charms and baubles that arent necessarily attached to jewelry
    - shawl pin

    Image Repro and Dyes
    - ombre-dying a plain, light-weight hippie/maxi skirt or dress
    - a set of full-sized sheets: tie-dye, batik, ombre, screenprint, stamp, indigo, or whatever other thing you want to do with them

    Fiber-y
    - plarn flip-flops
    - luscious batts/roving/carded fiber for spinning or felting
    - a calorimetry
    - socks of any length (Im a womens US size 7.5)
    - something inspired by my Ravelry favorites

    Needle-based
    - something like what was in the Felt Badge Swaps.
    - I'll never turn down handmade clothing of any kind, especially reconstructed or patched-together items.
    - 1-2 reusable cloth pads with snap closure
    - a water-resistant bag to be mounted on bicycle handlebars. Doesnt have to be pretty, just big enough to fit a few bike-commuting essentials. Maybe reconstructed from a fanny-pack?
    - a Teesha Moore patch
    - embroidery on a fitted t-shirt or tank

    Papercraft
    - A tiny book (can be filled on a theme, or blank)
    - a sampling of labels, tags, frames, or accents cut from your Sizzix, Spellbinders or Cricut. Non-kidsy/cutesy, no words or specificobjects. Any size, any weight. Can be solid or designed paper (doesnt have to be an attractive color or pattern), and Im not concerned about whether its archival quality.
    - Mail art, such as a 4x4 chunky page, an ATC, a few inchies, or any size art journal page. Some themes and attributes I'm fond of are here; again, don't feel limited by them.

    Consumables/Usables
    - homemade soap
    - other homemade skin or hair care items
    - tea youve concocted
    - long-lasting foods youve prepared -- jam, preserves, cured olives, dehydrated fruit or jerky, roasted nuts, etc.

    Mixed Media and Misc
    - a wall-hangable shrine, nicho, or decorated mirror (such as the wooden Ikea mirror with large surface area)
    - prayer flag
    - bolster, throw-pillow, or seat cushion, crafted in your specialty (i.e. patchwork, embroidered, felted, screenprinted, covered with buttons, etc). No ruffles, please.
    - a Craftster Scouts merit badge that you believe I have earned -- Ideas discussed at length over on the Friends of Craftster off-topic chit-chat board , or I can share ideas via PM
    - something that will help me learn and practice herbalism
    - something showcasing your skill in creative reuse/repurposing/upcycling
    - something with a mandala, hamsa/eye-of-fatima, chakra symbols, or a labyrinth
    - Miniature artifacts, signs of residency in nature, or curiosity-cabinet fodder, such as anything in the Wee House Craftalong or Phizzy's Fairy Godmother Cabinet

    Thank you!!

    Hello! I'm Rosie from Vermont, USA. I'm a vegetable farmer and my partner is a vet tech. We have three cats and ferret, and no allergies. I'm vegetarian and I like to avoid factory leather whenever possible.

    I love nature and animal themes, especially marine life. I lived in Maine for a few years and I really miss the ocean! I also studied marine bio in college so I like sciency things and natural history. I also love trees and mushrooms and moss. Gnomes over fairies. Lady pirates are the best. Some favorite color combinations are blue and purple, yellow and grey, and all shades of green together.

    Favorite fandoms include Doctor Who, Buffy, Hannibal, Game of Thrones, The Dresden Files, Star Trek, Tamora Pierce's Tortall, and Miyazaki.

    I have a crafty wishlist board on pinterest, and you can get a good idea of my likes and style from all my boards and my etsy favs. If you think I will really like something that's not on my list, go for it! I like surprises.

    What the heck!  Just thought Id throw my hat in the ring at this late date.  
    My name is Laura.I live in Boston with my 3 legged cat and work at a college library.  I enjoy reading, biking, crafting and beading, live music and cocktails.  I spend far too much time sitting on my couch with the cat watching TV and movies and could use more exercise.  Among my cultural obsessions are classic Muppets, Firefly, Venture Bros, Monty Python, Middle Earth, David Bowie and Tom Waits (there's even more to be found on my profile and pinterest page!)  Both in my home and when it comes to fashion, I prefer a more natural, simple look.    I tend to wear black, brown and cool colors, nothing fussy and soft cotton fabrics.  I dislike pinks, orange, neons, glitter, dolls, and religious or violent images.
    My pinterest page is here:  https://www.pinterest.com/calixita/

    List of things I would love to receive:

    *tshirts - I love tshirts but would especially appreciate some large, extra soft ones to sleep in.   size large, themes can be culled from my pinterest page and likes.

    *cat toys - he can never get enough.  

    *wallet - I prefer smaller ones.  https://www.pinterest.com/calixita/wallets/

    Im Katie in Ontario Canada, I am married with a just about 4 year old daughter. I am open to surprises based on any of the themes I have listed here and will happily answer questions.  I do a lot of craftsmainly sewing and knitting but dabble in lots of others. Please explore my Craftster favourites in my profile to see additional things I like

    Allergies: I am very allergic to smoke and I cannot wear metal jewellery.
    Craft Wish List
    My 4yo daughter currently loves firefighters and Frozen, Sid the Science Kid, and Paw Patrol.  So anything involving those things (especially featuring girl fire fighters would be greatly appreciated). If you want to do clothing kids Size 5/6 short sleeve shirts would be great.   

    A purse this size/style http://www.tenthousandvillages.ca/shop/en/new-arrivals/2310112-zippy-dark-leather-bag.html  but in fabric (space, star trek, a dark colour, or monarch butterfly)
    A plush Calvin and/or Hobbes like these ones https://www.pinterest.com/pin/267401296599189031/ or https://www.pinterest.com/pin/267401296599189017/
    A burgundy coloured steampunk fascinator
    A Batgirl or Westley Crusher or Night Circus poppet
    A surprise item that is Calvin and Hobbes
    Opening stitch markers featuring any theme listed
    A crafted game like this https://www.pinterest.com/pin/267401296600651203/
    How I Met Your Mother themed Christmas Ornaments (blue French horn or yellow umbrella or something else)
    Star Trek The Next Generation or Star Trek Deep Space Nine Christmas Ornaments
    Felt badges like https://www.pinterest.com/pin/267401296599204978/ or https://www.pinterest.com/pin/267401296599224327/ or inspired by anything mentioned
    Something like this play campfire  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/267401296599173982/ for my daughter
    Small ceramic mugs for my daughter (bigger than espresso smaller than regular so they are easy to lift) decorated with something she likes (list above)
    Stamps like these https://www.pinterest.com/pin/267401296595545398/ or dinosaur tracks

    Fabric for an I-Spy Quilt or Teesha Moore patches or Doll Clothes
    Sewing Patterns (that are really hard to get in Canada)

    Hi! I'm Olivia.  I live in Southern California. My husband and I have two boys ages 14, and 4. 
    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 next to the skin or as a craft supply.
    My favorite colors are moss green, gray and black, but I like a large range of colors.  I prefer my colors deep, dark, moody and Earthy. 
    Here's my Pinterest to give you a feeling for my style  http://www.pinterest.com/laachapa/

    sewing
    - a hook roll (for crochet hooks), fabric, extra points for leather! (please no bright, colorful or grandma fabrics)
    - a waist pack or fanny pack, again extra, extra points for leather!
    - a cat bed

    knitting
    - knit fingerless mitts
    - knit lacy beanie
    - plain knit beanie for my 4yr old, black, grey, or dark blue

    jewelry
    - wire wrapped crystal point necklace, smoky quartz, amethyst, citrine
    - wire wrapped crystal point earrings (must be on kidney wires (preferrably) or leverbacks)
    - something off my pinterest

    misc.
    - absolutely anything that is toad themed, they are my all-time favorite critters, and get so very little love -  the fat, warty kind
    - t-shirts, whatever you think I'll like (size L)
    - If you're a talented artist, I love original artwork. preferred themes are botanicals, animals, insects, skulls and bones.  All are quite extensively pinned to my Pinterest boards
    - felt play food for my 4-yr-old son
    - peg people to live in my 4-yr old son's wooden castle (something like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099924475414/  )  he has a castle but no figurines Sad
    - A yarn bowl! ceramic or wood-carved would be awesome!
    - something like this wooden business card holder
    http://www.pinterest.com/pin/198088083585301974/
    or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/31595634855967301/

    Hullo everyone! I'm Danielle. I'm 29 unmarried (but in a serious relationship with a geeky nerdy chef fella <3).  I have a big ol' cat man named Mao. He's a grey tabby tiger....cat. lol He's usually a grumpy Gus around people but he loves me to pieces <3 lol  I've moved a lot over the years and have never really decorated a place or made it mine - so that's what I'm doing now. I want to be surrounded by things I love <3 Also, I work from home and my desk looks soooo boring and empty. lol
