I'm claiming our amazing organizer for a Happy Jar with a twist Smiley

3 claims, 0 sent, 0 received

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, 2 guinea pigs, and a box turtle.

For most things, I would prefer items inspired by my pinterest instead of exact duplicates.

I am a huge fan of Loki, Firefly/Serenity, steampunk, and the color blue in all shades. Most rooms in my house are white or beige with blue accents, my living room is pale green. I need some color. I'm trying to make our house feel something like a beach cottage (even tho we are about 30 minute drive from the Chesapeake bay) but the house has more of an overstuffed, cluttered, lived in feel.

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

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

I claim Averia for a surprise from her pinterest board.

2 claims, 0 sent, 0 received


I live in Sweden with my SO and our two kids (one 7 year old and one 2 year old Smiley) I work at a university as a study counsellor, but this semester I have some time off to write my master's thesis. It's in the field of education, about attitudes towards truancy among teachers and pupils. I am thinking about getting a PhD somtime in the future. My SO is a PhD student of psychology.

When it comes to crafting I like to try pretty much all sorts of crafting, everything from crocheting to building sleeping lofts. Unfortunately I havent had much time for it for the last few years, but I hope to get back into crafting (and swapping at craftster) again now. Unfortunately (again) I had to give up my craft room to make a room for the kids. Yes, its worth it, but where am I to put my 5 sewing machines? Just asking! Smiley We are still looking for a bigger flat.

Anyway, thank you for having me in the swap, and here is my list (will add more shortly)...

Red means most wanted wishes!

Crafted things

General remark: If you would like to make me kids stuff (me, Mika and little Torild would love you for it Smiley), were not that into gender stereotyping, which basically means that both kids can still wear anything (little brother loves his dresses). If crafting for them, maybe just make sure to think of them as children and not either princesses or princes. Smiley

Matching clothes for Mika and Torild
Mika is very fond and proud of her baby brother, and she would love matching outfits to wear. Preferably something not too dressy (more of the fun and practical sort). Just got lovely t-shirts! Would prefer long sleeves now if sending tops. Some themes they like: Moomin, dr Who (preferably cute stuff, like Adipose or something "cutified" like this: http://img3.etsystatic.com/005/0/6903707/il_570xN.406072575_h0hd.jpg), buses, bicycles, orchids, lego...

Fabric painted shoes for either of the kids
Would love that! Themes maybe same as above or something else creative. They love color! Sizes EU 25 or 33 (see converter here: http://www.shoesize.com/kids/converter/).

Funky baby clothes
Fun, funky (or maybe liberal, feminist, sarcastic, scientific/geeky and/or LGBT...) kids clothes fitting a two year old or seven year old. We're not into gender stereotyping, so any colours are o.k. Something knitted would be really cool! but anything goes: appliques, fabric painted, crocheted...

Toddler clothes (for 2 year old) with the transgender symbol
See this: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:A_TransGender-Symbol_Plain3.svg Not that I am saying that my baby is transgender (or that it isnt), rather just that it is really gender indifferent. He couldnt care less. Feel free to make something fun out of the symbol. You can get inspiration by searching for images on google with words like trans symbol.

Large tea mugs
XXXL! I am thinking 1 litre (or 2 pints or whatever your unit of preference is Smiley).

Bath oil
Relaxing bath oil, natural.

Something knitted with squirrels on
...for me or for Mika or Torild. Love this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=354185.0

Cable knit womans cardigan
I know its to big of a wish, but one can wish, right? Smiley Preferably wool. I like this look: http://www.kaboodle.com/reviews/cardigan-sweater-full-tilt-womens-chunky-cable-knit-hooded-cardigan-grey

Work of art in a technique youre really good at
I like abstract art with a lot of contrast. I prefer larger works of art. Need something to cover a piece of my wall. Love these (just as a couple of examples):
The bigger and bolder the better!

I love this ring!
http://www.etsy.com/listing/35527786/kawaii-cute-japanese-floating-ring-tea or something like it. That illusion effect of it floating in the air is awesome!

Typography artwork
Some things to get inspired by:

Jelly roll
I would love to see what I could make of it. I don't think they are as easy to get here and I am curious about them.

Something Pi related for Mika (her name is Mika Pi)
maybe something using an embroidery hoop or clothes or just anything.

Upcycled dress/top for me
I am about a size S/M and 5 feet 7" (170 cm). Don't like too short tops)
Some ideas I like are on these pinterest boards. If you plan to make something else than dress/top from there, please ask first, because there is a great mix of things there that I want or are planning to make or just put there for some other reason. Will organize stuff better there soon:

You can get a good idea in general what I like from my pinterest
Either surprise me or ask me about something on there:


Alphabet cake pan Top wish!
Would love love love a pan like this (in this size):

Label holders
Nice looking metal label holders to put on cardboard boxes (around 1 x 2). Preferably complete with some sort of fastening device (brads, screws or whatever will work with the kind you send). Some examples:

Factory girl fabric

1/8 cup spoon
I don't know how common these are, but here in Sweden I certainly haven't seen any. I would like a spoon that measures 30 ml / 2 tbsp / 1/8 cup (which should be the same amount if I am not mistaken).

Cupcake maker
Would have to have a standard European or British plug

Craft kit for 2 year old
Maybe something like this:
or anything that he could actually take part in and craft with

Resin kit! (never tried before)

Screen printing kit! (with a frame or supplies to make one, and instructions, never tried before)

A kit for any kind of fun craft I haven't tried yet. Feel free to PM me about that.

a good hole puncher
Something to punch holes in anything from plastic to leather, preferably with different sizes and really good quality. I used to have one that could barely make holes, and you had to trim the holes afterwords with scissors.

Colorful fabric that is somewhat water resistant
to dress kitchen chairs

Supplies for my Silhouette Cameo
Things I can use with the Silhouette Cameo that I just bought. Blade, materials, kits... I want to try everything! Some ideas here: http://www.bestblanks.com/silhouette.html

Vinyl for making stencils

Cotton fabric with "frames" on
I am looking for fabric that consists of "frames" of some sort with a white inside. Ideal would be images of empty photo frames (if anyone has seen such a fabric, PLEASE tell me where). I love the pattern on this wallpaper: http://www.designonline.se/Products/sek1/Accessories/Wallpapers/8100/Familjen+tapet Otherwise maybe just white squares with a border of some other colour around it. I would like to use it to iron-on images in the white sqare and get the effect that the image is framed.

Badges for covering
Badges that I can cover with fabric.

Craft books & magazines

Book with fun/cute Japanese sewing and/or crochet patterns (when it comes to books it might be a good idea to ask if I already have the book before claiming).

Crochet books or magazines with fun new projects (not too traditional stuff). I like "Crochet today". Please ask me before you send a crochet book, since I have a few (not many) already and might have the one you want to send. (Will try to list the ones I already have soon.)

MAKE: technology on your time (The only one I already have is volume Cool

CRAFT: transforming traditional crafts. Will list which ones I have.

Craft books/magazines in general with fun new projects (not too traditional stuff) (in English or German or with easy-to-follow pictures (well, Swedish is good as well  Cheesy))

I claim gavagai for some relaxing, natural bath oil. Smiley


Hi, Im Julie. I live in Chicago, IL, USA, with my husband and my cat. My favorite colors are rich jewel tones (eggplant, forest green, deep blue, magenta, etc.) neutrals (browns, creams) and metallic (gold, rose gold, silver, bronze). I dont care for neons or pastels. Some of my favorite themes are gardening, hockey (Blackhawks), Harry Potter, books/reading/writing, stars/constellations, miniatures.

The crafts I do most often are crochet and needlepoint, but I dabble with all kinds of things woodburning, jewelry-making, sewing, skincare product making, to name a few.

I have sensitive ears, so please no earrings.

You cannot give me too much work; to accumulate work has almost become a passion with me: my study is so full of it now, that there is hardly an inch of room for any more. I shall have to throw out a wing soon. (J.K.Jerome)

I claim juliel85 for a macbook sleeve (due out May 12)

This is my second claim this round.
crazyda79 for fabric curlers (sent April 21)

Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband Uwe and little ones: Lea (3) and Hanna (1).  I don't like cigarette/cigar smoke, but have no allergies to speak of (some artificial scents, mostly). Our house is pet- and smoke-free.

My favourite colours are black (esp. for wearables), dark teal, deep purple, dark brown, cream & taupe (sand, milk, stone, wool... think nature), and pink. So: darker intensive or lighter bland colours. I use those colours for the kids as well, (but they also get bright ones, like light green). I like plain fabrics, or patterns like leaves and blossoms; polka dot... We have decorated our apartment mostly in light colours (white, cream, wood) so colourful stuff is always welcome. Repurposed and/or used is always fine. I usually prefer cotton or other natural fibers over acrylics.  Also I'm happy to receive supply only-claims.

I've set up a board on Pinterest for this swap, links to (almost) all handmade items (or at least pictures) from my list should be here: http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/craftster-ongoing-wish-list/. Big wishes right now are here, but I have lots of things I want on other Pinterest boards, so if you find something there... Especially here http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/jewelry-id-love-to-receive/ or here http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/t-shirts-i-want-to-make/ I love the two t-shirts I've received so far and am wearing them constantly. Now I want more!

Please keep in mind that I love miniatures! So if there is something you want to make, but shipping costs are too high, maybe it would also work out on a tiny scale?

O mug rug/s! It doesn't have to match anything, knock yourself out! (I've been meaning to add this for ages, I received my first one from our lovely organizer, and it's so cute!)
O Infinity scarf like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495762505/ or plain, or like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279496051367/ (jersey, or plain cotton, all fine! please just natural fibers, though)
O Ironing board cover for small folding table http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381080/
O Triple zipper bag like this or any other style, just need a small pouch with two extra pockets! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494592681/ (I have a green/cream one already that has been claimed by my daughter, now I'd love one for myself, maybe in black/teal/purple?)
O File folder pillow http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495877363/ (for those 2 minute breaks when I have to clear my head!)
O iPod cozy (for iPod classic) - maybe a star like this? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381063/ - or just a very plain pockety thing. Or I'd love one with a cutout for the wheel, but it doesn't necessarily need a window for the screen.
O Wall organizer with flat pockets, colourful like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494587827/ or cream/sand, or whatever you think would work for me (I have one from this pattern already, and I love it!)
O (Dandelion?) laptop sleeve for 11" macbook air (so: small!) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494719141/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279496051387/ or a different style/pattern As I claimed juliel85 for just this, I'll be making one for myself, too!
O Quiet Book pages to go into a A5 two-hole-folder. Closure learning type would be good, but anything is welcome! https://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279497260440/ I'll gladly do the punching & put grommets in!
O If anyone has a nice dark jersey fabric (solid or patterned) and maybe a serger, I'd love a very simple, plain tunic. It would have to be pretty large, though.
O Binding or bias tape: patterned or solid, scrappy or single colour...
O reusable Swiffer duster fleece thingies

Knit or crochet
O Wrist warmers in a neutral colour (many examples!)http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279496093363/ this one is probably the easiest
O Cowl, maybe like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279496399557/ - cream, or grey, or taupe, or dark teal, or dark purple... but these colours are always good! For anything!
O Spiral heel socks http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279493860489/
O Any socks really, cable, plain, or self-striping, knit or or crochet...
O Knit hat with owl pattern http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494719195//owl-hat-4  55 or 60cm (or really large for me) in grey or a nice cool brown shade, or in crochet http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495143479/ (or the pattern)
O Knit berry baby hat http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/berry-baby-hat for heads 50 or 55 (in a similar soft purple or strawberry red; if you add pips in the strawberry: yellow please!) (we already have a small raspberry pink one!)

O recipe cards (about 6x8" (15x20cm, A5) or smaller)
O mini stamps for "filofaxing" - appointments, birthdays, dates, movies, etc. - also work well for greeting cards (one piece of bunting, a candle, a cake or cupcake...)!
O a kind of suncatcher or mobile for the girls, so can be very colourful and all sparkly! ladybugs, butterflies and dragonflies a plus! maybe single pendants or strands to hang in their windows
O stamps - a simple leaf design, or swirls. also maybe a pretty blossom in parts, or one of those castle stamp sets
O notecards - mostly as thank yous and cards for swaps, but birthdays, Christmas, or no theme greatly appreciated, too!
O Leather planner/organizer cover like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377730/ in A6 so I can put a regular notebook and a calendar in it (or like the smaller Moleskine flex). I love plain oiled leather in darker brown or black.
O Screen printing kit (I would so love to try this!)
O Pillowcase 16 inch square, some examples here: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381076/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381077/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381087/
O Mini Twister game (the mat for the fingers as well as the wheel thing) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377707/
O Bubbles necklace! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495383186/
O Mini hooplas/wall art for my room in the doll house (because there is no space for a real hoopla wall and I love tiny things!). So inchies or rinchies in your favourite medium.
O Stand-up thingy for tablet (to look at sewing instructions while sewing...) (the bookish kind?) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494649573/
O Embroidery floss cards - plain, or shaped, painted, printed... lots of those! (examples on my Pinterest)
O Yarn bowl - this pottery one http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494249555/ is my absolute favourite (the colour, the little stars!), but I'd love one made from a wooden bowl too. Or even from a large plastic cup, as long as it's fun to look at and doesn't topple over or hop around the room while I'm working. (If it's large enough, I can always put a stone in as a weight!)
O Anything Labyrinth for me... crochet, knit, Fimo, sewn, embroidered, whatever, useful or just pretty...
O Calvin & Hobbes - again anything "pretty" and/or useful
O Something Care Bears! But from the original series please, not the bobbleheaded new ones.
O Something "Where the Wild Things Are"... loved by me and my daughter!

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

Supplies (scraps or used is fine!)

I will claim Anne for a mug rug!!

First claim
none sent
none received

Im Tammy.  Im 42 and im married to a great man and mom to three handsome boys in Northern California. I moved here from OH and love it!! We purchased our first home and are thrilled!!  I like to sew, quilt.  I am starting to get into embroidery and can crochet a little bit.  Im very much into girly type stuff and love anything regency -titanic era. I also love 30s-40s things as well.  I am allergic to nickel.
Here are my wishes
Anything off my wist list is great!!

Im looking for unwanted rock concert tshirts!!  80s hairbands a plus!!!  rock, hard rock or metal!! !

Urban Threads gift certificate (im so addicted!!)
Embroidery threads (Sulky, Medera or Gutterman are my favorites!!) Any colors!!

New items

I have an embroidery machine so new threads, stabilizers and such is most welcome and needed!!!

pair of black leg warmers (for hubby)

Mediums (more can be found in my list  Grin)
~~Jewelry (chokers, bracelets, earrings but please no nickel posts)
~~Aprons!!  Even though I sew them I would love to see what others come up with!! 
~~New purse
~~Hand warmers Victorian Goth ones would be perfect.
~~Crazy Quilted Purse.  Or any purse made by you!!
~~Regency or Victorian era Reticule  (have received but more are always welcome here!!)
~~Petticoat (cotton or cotton blend please) either knee or ankle length with some fullness to it as I like poufy skirts !! I actually wear these a lot!! (Im 5'5 email for length) (received one from farmgirljane and would love more!!)
~~I would love some soft wool socks!!  Size 7 feet  Or a pair of socks with eyelet lace sewn around the cuffs (remember to stretch the sock a bit or it wont fit  Grin)
~~I have a weird obsession with knitted cuffs!! I love them!!  Chocolate brown, red.
~~ Anything that can help me decorate my Victorian inspired sewing room
~~ Would love a first aid kit that I can keep in my car.  Can be of any medium just as long as its a bit "fun" to look at and have. After all first aid is bad enough!!   Something really creative (thats why i asking.  I cant think of anything lol)

Im also looking for a sign that says "Please no solicitors or religious groups"  I have people of one kind or another knocking at my door constantly and it makes me rather uncomfortable.

Crafted Items~~


I love this shawl and I am willing to wait longer if anyone will make it for me. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CivilWarShawlKAL/  Im not picky about color.  Would be just happy to even have one.


**Civil War Era Cape called a Mathilde Mantilla (Think of a Civil War era Poncho.  This is basically what it is)  Here is a link to the pattern http://www.uvm.edu/%7Ehag/godey/images/s5902170.jpg  and here is an example of what it looks like http://www.thegracefullady.com/civilwargowns/ready-mades_silkmantle.htm Measurements will be provided.  Wool blend or Corduroy would be great. Hood is decorative and is not functional. It only uses around 3 yards.  I would also prefer it lined for warmth. It would be great if I could retain the pattern as well for future projects.  (I can sew I just cant figure out how to make it <frown>) without a pre-drafted pattern.  OR If someone with any drafting kills wouldnt mind drafting a pattern to my size I could play around with it and make my own (If I have a pattern to work with)

Primitive Raggedy Ann doll (An example is in my wists) (Kookaloo Star sent me a lovely one but im going to leave this here cause im in love with these and would love a collection of them.)

Victorian caplet.  At least waist length please email for length.

Slat bonnet or corded can provide links if needed.  Any pattern should do as they are all basically the same result.

I would love some handkerchiefs. Monogrammed with my initials would be nice too!! (received more is welcomed)

Victorian slippers.  This pattern is from 1864

Im looking for special kind of apron for my husband.  He cooks the eggs at breakfast time and is a ninjitsu martial artist.  I would love an embroidered apron that has a ninja/martial artist holding a spatula in each hand and says "Egg Master" underneath.  Fabric and colors are open as long as its durable and holds up.

Other Crafts~~~
Bars of handmade soap (the kind that is made from lye).  Lavender, oatmeal, goats milk, citrus are great however any scents are welcome!!  Or soap supplies/kit as I would love to learn how to make my own.  Plain Pre-made soap bars (cold press i think they are called) that are ready to have scents, colors, herbs ect melted and added in are appreciated too as I have young children and am concerned with having lye in the house.  <USA only>   Gonna hold off on these for a bit!!!

Room sprays

Im looking for some scented oils.  I would rather these be handmade or from specialty shops and not from stores like joanns or hobby lobby ect.

Hand crafted candles are great too. Prefer either fruit and or spice scented ones or lavender (only floral scented one I like).  Im also interested in the scented candle chunks that you can melt and scent your house with.  I have received some but always appreciate more!!

Whimsey jar are really fun!!

Im looking for a serving tray that I can bring snacks from the kitchen to the living room.  Asian or Victorian influence a real plus.  Ive seen some nice ones made from frames (glass removed)

Im also looking for a picture frame.  about 1.5 inches or more wide/thick on the sides.  What I would like is a thin wooden back fitted to it. I dont need the glass for it.  An old vintage frame would be preferred for this.  Im going to use it as a center piece tray for candles (if you can visualize it will lay flat on the table) I can take a pic of the pic in my book if you would like to see my inspiration.

Shower curtain.  Victorian style please!! Please contact for colors.

My 18 year old loves Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before Christmas so anything with him on (appropriate for a guy) would be fantastic
Handcrafted Jewelry with Victorian influence

Im looking for a table runner for our new table we recently purchased.  Looking for something, of course Victorian style as well.  Measurements can and will be provided.  Want something rich looking but affordable to make!!  Also looking for new fabric dinner napkins (18").

Sewing items~~ Anything related to sewing is welcome!!  Trims, fabric, thread ect.(Gently used too)
Im also interested in any older sewing supplies as well from antiques stores and such (I have a tracing wheel i bought for $4 so they can be affordable).  Patterns (Burda Mag, Modern, Historic and Historic inspired too)!!  I need envelopes with a size 14 & 16 included in the envelope for dresses and tops and a 16 for skirts.  Thanks!!

Im especially trying to find a Simplicity Jumper Pattern from 1948 pattern is on my wist list (36" bust if possible)

Fabric Mystery Bundle from Fabricmart.com  http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com/xcart/804051-10-yard-Mystery-Fabric-Bundle-Assortment.html  Or the mystery box they have for sale (received but more are always welcome!!  I love these!!!!  Thanks Averia!!)

New or Unwanted Issues of Threads ( I have all of 2003, 2006-2008 Though I dont have issues 137 or 138, 140  !!!) probably best to check with me on numbers!!   and Burda World of Fashion Magazine !! (I have a few ...1/06** 7/03**4/05** 3/08**)  (used is fine) Knipmode, Ottobre, Patrones, La Mode

Purse supplies of all sorts (handles, magnetic snaps, rings ect).  Silver Victorian clasps would be great too (can be found at Hancocks).  I desperately need some magnetic snaps!!

Scrapbooking items  (trims, paper, stickers anything!!).  Im also looking for some things like brads, ribbons, fancy paper, scissors.  Im also looking for corner punchers, rulers for making fancy torn edges and hole punchers (I have a heart one).  Also plain colored or white blank greeting type cards would be wonderful!!


Costume jewelry or broken pieces that can be recycled into new jewelry

I really need some cub/boy scout related scrapbooking items such as paper, stickers ect!!!!

Also looking for decorated photo albums.  One for the non American candy wrappers that I collect!!

Handcrafted cards by you would be great!!

Im also looking for a decorated (painted/decoupaged/stained ect) box for my scrapbooking paper or larger 12X12.  Would prefer an old vintage look.

Stamps and ink pads

Beading supplies like wire 18 gauge or higher, beads, spacers.  Im also needing jewlery making supplies too.  I would love some Swarovski jewelry supplies!!  Also ANY bead findings from Blue Moon Beads of their Lost and Found and/or Manor House (or any that features Victorian/Edwardian pieces) collection would be wonderful.  Also looking for a roll of tiger tail for beading and jewelry projects!!

Yarn!! I love yarn!! I would prefer not to receive any 100% acrylic.  However wool, cotton, silky whatever!!  All colors are welcome (well except neon bright bright colors).

My husband collects law enforcement patches.  I would love to get a bunch for him for him.  If you live near a prison, jail or other LE facility perhaps they would let you have one???  He gets his this way by asking and they are usually happy to give him one.  My husband loves Asian things as well as LE related (he is a correctional officer) and anything relating to the park service (Smokey the Bear gets double marks lol!!). He is a fan of Bruce Lee and any DVD (he has VHS) movies or any craft with him inspired would be wonderful!!  Or perhaps a stenciled t-shirt of Bruce Lee.  He would be thrilled to receive something just for him (It also continues him to encourage me to swap.  Ya know totally his idea)

Lego's for my two boys would be wonderful.  They are obsessed!!

Im also looking for a Yellow Freight cap.  Hubby would love one, and has said so for as long as we have been together.  Not sure why but figured I would look for him!!

Pagan Related
Incense charcoal (these can be found in metaphysical or ethnic shops such as those specializing in incense)

Parchment paper
