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!
- Plus-sized (wider) cloth menstrual cloths with snaps or buttons underneath (can be regular or insert style)
- Plus sized vintage style apron
- Neck, Shoulder, Back heat pad like https://www.etsy.com/listing/77479103/neck-shoulder-back-nsb-microwave-heat?ref=sr_gallery_1&ga_search_query=NSB&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all - function is more important than look; something that can stand up around the neck like this one would be extra awesome
- 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!!

- 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
- Pillows like http://www.pinterest.com/pin/277604764505193511/ (details on the pin)
- 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
- Napkin rings similar https://www.etsy.com/listing/125371745/crochet-napkin-rings-4-red-beaded-cotton?ref=sr_gallery_10&ga_search_query=crochet+napkin+rings&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all - white, sunshine bright or pale yellow, or cobalt blue (or turquoise for Christmas ones) - preferably a set of 6 - open to other styles as well!

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!

- 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

- 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

Im Carol from Connecticutand it is cold outside. Im a down to earth girl and love anything earthy, magical, monsters, altered items, steampunk, whimsical and snarky. Just try living with me!
I tend towards earthy and rich colors, but a splash of something bright makes me happy, just no glitter please. Im not much into jewelry, except for earrings and maybe a brooch or two for my new, really warm wool coat (its green, sort of on the army green, but a bit brighter).
No smokers please and no religious, political or fandom items. I do like fairy tales and legends, but the more traditional versions. And nothing too big, I have a small house that is turning into one big curio cabinet.
Heres my list
Brooch for coat (see above) fabric art, metal, mixed media, earthy, funk, chunky. I wear mostly browns and neutrals with the coat
Fingerless mittens, love em
Stuffie/ninni/dote any critter real or imagined knitted, crocheted, sewn
Art doll or altered doll
Fabric love fabric any color/pattern (cottons please) especially love antique or vintage fabrics
MonstersI love monsters
Witches hedge, scary, little old lady types, sweet
Junker Jane creatures or doll
Lunch bag with handles
Fabric journal page (6x6) or prayer flag, you pick the theme or words
Matchbox art or inchie houses
Assembly/mixed media item made out of found items
Surprise item what is your favorite craft
Creature or doll made out of clay/polymer clay/paper clay or mache
Handmade cards blank
Anything inspired by Pinterest http://www.pinterest.com/cmarion3/

Papers and ephemera

Have fun!

Hello.  Im littlefawnpug.  I live in the USA with my darling hubby, sweet kiddo and my pug.  I enjoy crocheting, knitting, reading, watching movies and spending time with my family.  I love anything to do with pugs, tattoos, books, 1950s and crafting.  I like red/white/black color combos, black/grey, realtree camo pattern.  My favorite movies/books are Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and Twilight.  (I know, I know.  Vampires don't sparkle.  But I still enjoy the books.  LOL.)

zipper pouches for organizing my things in a a theme I like.  Perhaps, red/black/white, realtree, retro 1950s ish.
A place mat for my pugs food/water bowls.  Maybe shaped like a bone with his name on it.
a messenger bag.  would love it in a thick tan canvas material with a pug silhouette on the flap.
