Welcome to the Ongoing Wish Swap (OWS) Round 115 for June 2015!

GALLERY & DISCUSSION LINK for round(s) 113, 114 & 115 go to gallery CLICK HERE

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rscowtown
Sign-up date range: 6/01/2015-6/30/2015
Claim date range 6/01/2015-6/30/2015 (some claims made near the end of the month will have a ship by date in the following month)
Date to send item by: 2 weeks after the date of the claim

Limited to a certain number of people? No

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

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
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:

- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES

- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES


Details of swap:

This is an ongoing swap: Claim an item from the list of the last person who posted and post your own list in response. It makes a chain. When we get to the end of the month, the very last person to post a list will be the first person to post a list at the beginning of the next month.

The size of the package should be a medium item. This means 2 or more crafting hours ( this is not cooking time, drying time, etc.. waiting around for something to set up.......it is craft time for the average crafter) or supplies worth at least $20.

ABOUT SENDING AND RECEIVING...
1) When you send to the person you have claimed, you MUST PM the organizer with the delivery confirmation # or if you are outside the US, you need to either PM the customs number on your receipt from the post office or upload a copy of your post office receipt.

2) When you receive a claim, you MUST PM the organizer so she can update the main list.

3) NEW!!!! We are asking that everyone post once a week in the discussion/gallery board--so that we know you're still here with us Smiley  Obviously, if you join mid month, you would only need to post for the weeks you are in the swap (the last 2 weeks cuz you weren't in the swap during the first 2 weeks).

If you post:  "I'm still here but swamped with work!" that's ok! If you want to post a big rambling note about what you did during the week, that's ok too. Don't forget to comment on the lovely items folks are receiving from their claims!

Did you make something that you'd just love to make again? Post it in the discussion and suggest that mebby someone add it to their wish list so you mebby could claim them! I have lots of paint and brushes left over from when I taught One Stroke Painting classes (am a certified One Stroke Painting Instructor). Some of those brushes and paints are begging for a new home cuz they don't like sitting in my storage rooms down in the store. Hint hint! Want some brushes or acrylic paints? now you can add that to your wish list.

Go ahead, check out your excess or duplicate things, mention them in this swap's discussion board and perhaps they too will soon be winging their way to a new home where they will be used!

Let's keep the discussions going and maybe growing--ideas for some games we can do in the discussion/gallery board? I would be more than happy to supply some prizes!

These 2 required PM's are part of communication and are used when giving feedback for participating in this swap.

If you want to participate, information to send to the organizer: rscowtown
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 115 {June 2015}
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:

1. Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? (If not, please read carefully to be sure you do not claim someone outside your country)

2. Confirm that are at least 16 years old: (YES/NO)

3. Do you understand that you are claiming for at least a medium sized item? For this swap a medium sized item means 2 or more crafting hours or over $20 worth of supplies.

4. Are you a Friend of Craftster?

5. How many claims are you allowed? (New swappers--this would be your very first swap ever--1 claim; those who have been in swaps before--2 claims; Friends of Craftster--3 claims)

6. Do you agree that you will PM the organizer when you send and when you receive, and if sending, PM the delivery confirmation # or a pic of the receipt if you are outside the US?

7. Do you understand that you should post at once a week in the discussion thread?
Any questions?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO THE ORGANIZER (rscowtown) VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Do not post in this thread until you are ready to make a claim. All discussion needs to be kept in the discussion/gallery thread. Please post at least once in the discussion thread.

When you PM the organizer for sending and receiving please include the name of the swap (including the round) and the due date of the claim.  
I.E.  Sally ----> Suzy for a pink pony saddle due out Jan 1

Please pay close attention to your partners wish list and allergies, likes, dislikes etc. Make sure your own allergy information and your country are prominently displayed in your post.

Do not claim someone while waiting for approval. You may claim as soon as you get approval confirmation.

Have your list including both 15 medium crafted items AND 15 supply items ready before making your first claim (the more you have, the better your chance of getting claimed quickly).

Please include your claims status: How many claims you have made in total, how many are in transit and how many have been received by their intended recipients. i.e/ 4 claims/1 in transit/2 received.

Unsent Claim Limit:
Friend of Craftster: Three
First-Time Swapper: One
Everyone Else: Two


You may claim again once you have shipped a claim but you can not have more than twice your Unsent Claim Limit outstanding at any one time.

If you are a friend of craftster you can have 3 unsent claims open at a time and no more than 6 total claims open (open meaning in transit as well as not yet sent) no matter how many have been posted. As an example, You claim 3 times, send all 3 packages, then claim 3 more times. Even when you send any or even all of those 3 claims, you can not claim again until a claim has been received. So a person can be 6 claims/3 in transit/0 received. Or 6/6/0 or 8/5/2 or 7/5/1.

If you are not a friend of craftster, you can have at most 2 claims unsent and 4 claims total between unsent and in transit. So 4/2/0 is okay or 5/3/1 or 6/4/2

If this is your first swap, You can have at most one claim in transit and one claim unsent. 2/1/0, 2/2/0, 3/1/1

Please keep in mind that DC#'s are required for all US to US packages and receipts are required for all international packages. If you can not provide a receipt and the package does not arrive you will need to resend the package.

If you have questions, please PM me! Welcome to Round 115 of the OWS!

Here is our first person up for grabs in Round 115!

It's leighi123!! Please PM her if you wish to claim her (not me cuz im just copying her list Smiley

I'm Leigh-Ann, I'm 29 and a single mom to Levi, who turns 8 in July!  

I'm very allergic to smoke, and I don't like olive green, navy blue, pastel or dull colors, lacy things, and anything including animal products (we are vegetarian)
I prefer things that are useful vs. just decor or "stuff"
Love bright colors, tiny things, natural/organic treats/stuff, beach inspired things, rainbow colors, etc.

I would LOVE stuff I can use for Levi's bday party (June 20), and gifts I can give him (clothes, toys, etc) - His favorite colors are bright pink, purple, and anything neon - he is a "gender neutral kid" so things that look very "boy" won't appeal.  

My pintrest:  https://www.pinterest.com/leighi123/
LOTS of ideas on there!

Amazon wish list: http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/2VUJVWZH14XQF/ref=cm_wl_rlist_go_o?

Crafted: 




-Clothes for Levi (pm me for measurements)
-sundress (sleeveless) for me size small
- tank tops, size small jrs, with stencils/embroidery/etc in summer-y/beachy designs
- fun - headband(s) that will work for very fine, long hair, nothing tight/uncomfortable

- anything fun for a camping/survival theme bday party, need EVERYTHING (decor, goodie bag stuff, cake toppers, food holders, plates, banners, games/supplies, supplies for a kid craft etc)
- handmade lip balm that is not too waxy/sticky (natural flavor/scents)
- candles scented with essential oils
- necklace inspired by this: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/45950858667765789/
- bleach pen made from sharpie: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/556616835170935906/
- Serger cover: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/387591111657426050/  (this is the serger I have)
- loose weave crochet blanket in bright rainbow colors, the bigger the better but anything lap size or bigger is fine.  non-itchy, washable yarn prefered.  







Supplies:

- Urban Threads gift card, or designs off my wish list
- machine embroidery thread (esp orange, black, white, teal, turquoise, medium tan, glow in the dark, variegated)
 
- paracord string and clasps (need a bunch in different colors) 
- colored tape (i.e. electrical tape, duck tape, etc), in any fun colors/prints
- supplies for making sunscreen, esp non-nanno titanium dioxide and shea butter
-essential oils (anything for inattentiveness, any kind of mint, orange, lavender, TTO)
-wood slices with holes for making keychains, like this: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/45950858667829043/
-star cupcake tip: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/45950858673901997/
-fun buttons in bright colors, any size
-knit fabric, for me to make dresses for myself from
-knit fabric, for making kid t-shirts (bright colors!)
-ribbing (for cuffs/neckbands) any colors, even small amounts help!
-mosaic tile grab bags like this: https://www.etsy.com/listing/188482820/150-mosaic-mix-3-grab-bag-stained-glass?ref=favs_view_2
This sewing pattern:   https://www.etsy.com/listing/231418075/the-everything-but-the-kitchen-sink?ref=favs_view_4
- Faux wood background for taking photos (I hear they have paper or something from hobby lobby for cheap but ours does not have)
- Katwise sweater coat tutorial pattern on etsy here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/57955143/upcycled-sweater-coat-tutorial-by?ref=shop_home_active_2  
- paint brushes, nice ones or even the crappy kid ones, I have use for both
- acrylic paint in any colors
- 1" elastic for waistbands
- small ribbon scraps in any color (I make little tags with them for clothes I sew)
- pins with flat head (usually flower shape?)

Extras:

I claim rscowtown for some hand carved stamps

1/0/0


Hi, I live in Florida in the USA with my hubby and pet birds and chickens.

Likes:  minty aqua!!, Tiffany blue (NOT sky blue), black, silver, cooler colors like greens, blues (NOT sky blue), purples in jewel tones •  I (generally) prefer useful items • glittery/sparkly/shiny things • In jewelry I prefer silver over gold color. I like longer necklaces (22" to 24") • birds , chickens (prefer hens over roosters), chubby song birds, ravens, crows, owls • coffee, chocolate, homemade jams/preserves • velvet, natural dyed yarns/fiber, bold colorful yarn/fiber • rain, winter and fall, sea glass, windchimes, music, Christmas, Christmas ornaments and lights, stained glass, fountain pens, handwritten letters, sewn zipper pouches, altered books, altered journal art • books, reading, fantasy literature, Harry Potter, Gryffindor, English period pieces (like Pride and Prejudice)

Dislikes:  sky blue, orange, yellow, neon colors, pink • zombies, monkeys (sock or otherwise), pinups, skulls, clowns, baby dolls or doll parts, gory/bloody stuff, body part things (anatomical hearts, eyeballs etc) • politics, crucifixes • lace (knit lace is fine though), hounds-tooth print, country themes, animal prints (cheetah, zebra etc) • not into pin-back buttons/badges (the kind with photos/quotes printed and pressed into a badge/pin. Decorative brooches are entirely ok though!)

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

Thank you in advance for crafting for me! Smiley





Sewn

* dust cover for my drum carder
* circular needle organizer — any of these are great! This one (not pink though), this one, or this one
* DPN needle organizer — this one is awesome!
* Corduroy bird coasters – love these!
* Skillet handle cover - in dark fabric. But its for my hubby for camping so nothing overly girly please. Smiley He's not into sports though, so maybe solid, plaid, vegetable print, camping print etc. He likes blues, browns, greys, maybe a dark green.
* sleep masks with something soft for the inner fabric (like fake velvet etc.)   Can use multiples of this.  I'd love one for myself but I also would like some for gift giving.

I claim La Chapa for a looong bead necklace or two (due out June 18)

This is my first claim this round.
1/0/0

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 (except for a few dust bunnies and maybe the odd spider).

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 (stylized) 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 small to tiny scale? Especially if it's supposed to go on the wall.

Recent (and very much coveted) additions in bold

Sewn
O Things to take-thingies (could use two) like this https://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495755580/. Three pockets ideal for wallet, phone & keys. Can have just small grommets or loops, as they will go onto a wall instead of a doorknob
O Mug rug/s! It doesn't have to match anything, knock yourself out! Some ideas here http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/artwork-hoopla-inchie-inspiration/, but you can go with anything I mentioned in this list, my profile, or whatever you would like to make! I would love lots of different ones! A very plain or a simple set of two or four, or a quilted or embroidered one, a sheep or a penguin, or...!
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 File folder pillow http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495877363/ (for those 2 minute breaks when I have to clear my head!) (I'll gladly take care of the stuffing!)
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 Quiet Book pages to go into a A5 two-hole-folder (15x20cm, 6x8"). Anything is welcome! https://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279497260440/ I'll gladly do the punching & put grommets in! Of course I realize that even one page can be much more than a medium, depending... (Stay tuned to see which ones I'll reeive from Avie; but then I have two girls...)
O If anyone has a nice dark jersey (solid or patterned) and maybe a serger, I'd love a very simple, plain tunic. It would have to be pretty large, though, XXL or XXXL.
O Binding or bias tape: patterned or solid, scrappy or single colour, from a fat quarter or a long strip from a sheet...
O reusable/washable 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  50cm/20" or (or 60cm for me!) in grey or a nice cool brown shade! Also possible in crochet! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495143479/
O Knit berry baby hat http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/berry-baby-hat for heads 50cm/20" (in a similar soft purple or strawberry red; if you add pips in the strawberry: yellow please!) (Raspberry pink will work again, too, as the one we have is too small by now!)

Other
O Something small printed/stamped/embroidered with dandelions on it: A tea wallet, a little zippered coin purse or tampon wallet, a headphone keeper, pendant, anything! https://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279497094302/
O Stone & crystal (glass) pendant like this with four crystals (two smaller, two larger) https://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494784538/
O Glow-in-the-dark tree of life pendant pretty much like this: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279496850831/
O Covered tape measure: sheep, zebra, penguin, kitten, or maybe something completely different! https://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495378003/
O Lanterns for tea lights / candles made from cans, example: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279496269433/ - pretty or funny.
O Coasters (a set of four), maybe with birds or polkadots like these: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495642292/ https://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495877358/ (not necessarily round or made from wood!)
O Han and Leia Mugs - please include "i love you" and "i know" (bottom inside would be my favourite!) https://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279494131098/
O recipe cards (about 6x8" (15x20cm, A5) or smaller) (various on my OWS board)
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...)!  (various on my OWS board)
O a kind of suncatcher or mobile for the girls, so it can be very colourful and all sparkly! Maybe just chandelier drops? We have those in the kitchen window and are enjoying the little rainbow fishies... Anyway, 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 pretty flowers 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 Pillowcases: 40cm/16 inch square, some examples here: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381076/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381077/  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495381087/ or here http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/artwork-hoopla-inchie-inspiration/
O Mini Twister game (the mat for the fingers as well as the wheel thing) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377707/, could be cardboard, plastic, fabric...
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. Maybe somthing from here as an inspiration? http://www.pinterest.com/annawahnsinn/artwork-hoopla-inchie-inspiration/
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" or "The Very Hungry Caterpillar"... loved by me and my daughters!

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, as are supply only claims!)
O Embroidery hoops! All sizes, especially 4-8" - but if you have a smaller or larger one, those are very welcome, too!
O (Organic) essential oils: Lavender, bergamot, jasmine, camomile, rosewood, vetiver & immortelle (I think), lemon verbena. Plus I love vanilla, white musk, damask rose.
O cotton/satin ribbon or twill tape (plain or patterned, printed, embroidered...) to hem kiddie skirts or pants, pieces of 25" or longer would be good
O embroidery floss: especially blacks, whites, creams, regular and pastel colours (for care bears etc.)!
O Fabric paint (my favourites: silver, black, white, dark teal, dark purple, dark brown, pink; but need the regular colours as well to make shirts and stuff with the kiddies) (can also be glittery, metallic or pearlescent) - I'd love the kind that doesn't have to be ironed to fix the paint
O Fimo soft (all the colours!)
O Plain white silk scarves, shawls, foulards, handkerchieves etc. for me to paint
O Always: fabric! (esp. solid black!, teals; purples, or smaller patterns)
O Always: Sewing thread! All the colours – at the moment I could especially use black, blues, greens
O Binding or bias tape (bought, handmade, patterned?)
O Calendar stamp http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495066678/
O Metal stamping blanks & stamps (heart, star!) (oh, anything really, I only have very plain alphabet stamps and some rectangly tags)
O Embroidery floss bobbins (plain, or patterned)
O Twill tape
O Papers or cardstock (plain, glittery or pearly): Would love 12x18cm / 5x8in, can use smaller, especially in teal, cream, turquoise, black, pink/rose or brown (to be used as planner pages/dividers, for cards etc.)
O Books/magazines on (bead) embroidery, sewing (doll clothes, kids, or women plus size)
O Sewing patterns for kids clothes & doll clothes (American Girl, and baby 12inch)
O KamSnaps
O No sew snaps (refills; no tools needed) (Prym) smallish preferred
O Very large eyelets (1/2" +)
O Wooden or glass beads from 3mm to 10mm, any colours/shapes
O Shaped beads: Drop/teardrop shapes, hearts, leaves (glass, metal, pottery, clay, wood...)
O Tea and spice tins / tea caddies https://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377698/ and http://www.pinterest.com/pin/171981279495377711/ (love tea urns, too, but those might be not ideal for overseas shipping)
O Anything really (bedsheet, pillowcase, notebook, eraser, pens, stamps, stickers...) from these: original care bears, forever friends (the teddy bears!), classic pooh, very hungry caterpillar, barbapapa, moomins, gruffalo, mickey & minnie mouse

My 3yo has been bitten by the ballet bug, and the little one has by now joined her! If anyone has tiny ballet slippers or shoes (just for play, they won't stand on pointe yet!) that their original owner has grown out of or doesn't use anymore, we would love to receive/swap/whatever! She's been watching the Nutcracker (Balanchine version) over and over again and Barbie Swan Lake and is constantly asking everyone to dance with her.

If you want to claim me for something that is not on this list, don't worry and just go ahead! Chances are I'll realize how desperately i wanted it anyway as soon as you claim me for it! So: Thank you for claiming me!

Hi, I live in Florida in the USA with my hubby and pet birds and chickens.


likes:  minty aqua!!, Tiffany blue (NOT sky blue), black, silver, cooler colors like greens, blues (NOT sky blue), purples in jewel tones •  I (generally) prefer useful items • glittery/sparkly/shiny things • In jewelry I prefer silver over gold color. I like longer necklaces (22" to 24") • birds , chickens (prefer hens over roosters), chubby song birds, ravens, crows, owls • coffee, chocolate, homemade jams/preserves • velvet, natural dyed yarns/fiber, bold colorful yarn/fiber • rain, winter and fall, sea glass, windchimes, music, Christmas, Christmas ornaments and lights, stained glass, fountain pens, handwritten letters, sewn zipper pouches, altered books, altered journal art • books, reading, fantasy literature, Harry Potter, Gryffindor, English period pieces (like Pride and Prejudice)

allergies:
Strong scents and cigarette smoke give me migraines. Sad
I am fairly certain I am allergic to mohair…it feels like glass on my skin. Sad

I claim grey bird for some jewlery

1/0/0

Hi! I'm Lo, I live in Northern CA, USA. I tend to lean towards darker colors; marroon, gold, black, dark purples and reds, jewel tones, etc. A few of my favorite themes are anatomy, aliens, vintage circus or freak show, bats/vampires (creepy kind, not cutesy) Halloween, chakras, crystals, Egyptian themes or gods, power puff girls, Beauty and the Beast.. Feel free to PM me with questions!

I get migraines extremely easily, therefore I can't accept anything that smells heavily of smoke or has a fake chemical smell. If something is scented I prefer a neutral smell like nag champa or food scents.

Surprises are always welcome! here is my craftster wants pinterest board for inspiration! https://www.pinterest.com/1createmydreams/craftster-wants/
