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.


BIG WISH! Christmas stockings for my partner and me. Ask me for colors if you want to make these!

BIG WISH! Return address label stickers, ask me about themes for these too Smiley

Colorful or fun throw pillows for our couch, any size

Warm hat or snood, must be soft! Knit, crochet, or fabric/fleece would be lovely

Upcycled sweater mittens for toasty driving

Mini art quilt in any theme or colors I like

Hoopla in any size or skill level

Small/medium flat bottomed tote bag that I can use to bring lunch to work

Flannel yardage in feminine prints/color to make days for girls kits

Ornaments for our Christmas tree - we're just starting out and don't have much! No overt religious themes please.

Ipod touch case with a way to store earbuds

Home canned goods like jam, preserves, pickles, etc.

Coasters of any material

Bookmarks as long as they're fairly thin

Fridge magnets in bird or cat themes

Hufflepuff or bisexual pride colors are yellow/black and pink/purple/blue, respectively. I'd love anything in these colors, especially wearables.

Totoro/Mononoke/Nausicaa crafts, figurines, art, t-shirts

Knit, felted, or sewn slippers, something warm that I can slip on hands-free (size 9.5 women)

Pottery like mugs, bowls, or planters. I love the look of hand-thrown ceramics and glazes.

Headbands, hair sticks, or hairpins and clips (I have black hair, so most things go with that)

Stitch markers (I don't have any)

Greeting/thank you cards that I can use to mail ATCs

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/

*Day of the Dead skull ornaments - https://www.pinterest.com/pin/203154633167460034/  

*mushrooms for my mantle- https://www.pinterest.com/pin/203154633165977610/

*decorated mug - I like to switch my morning tea mugs out according to season.  right now I have very few appropriate for Autumn but any season is appreciated.  Id prefer if they werent holiday related but more general (autumn leaves or scenery rather than specifically Halloweeny, for instance).

*knit boot cuffs - in charcoal or grey  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/176062666656387617/

*decorative snowmen for my Mom - she likes bright colors (especially blue and yellow) and for her snowmen to have personality
   perhaps like these:  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/104356916337435582/

*a Christmas stocking for me - my favorite Christmas decorating motifs are reindeer, stars and snowflakes

*couch pillows - my living room colors are greens and brown and I love nature themes!

*a seasonal wreath

*pinterest-inspired surprises

Have a wonderful day!

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)

A few things I love for inspiration

Sometimes you get to change the world, and other times the world changes you.

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/

- 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

- knit fingerless mitts

- plain knit beanie for my 4yr old, black, grey, or dark blue
- small knit lacy shawlette, the triangular king

- 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

- 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
or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/31595634855967301/
- homemade jams and preserves
- lip balms

- white Prismacolor pencils
- black, brown, tan, grey yarn - sport weight, thread weight, sock weight, any material

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

(Also - I wanted to say that the stuff I post links to, doesn't have to be done 100% like the links, they're just examples!)
