Ongoing Wish Swap Round 123 Febuary 2016

Click here for the Gallery/Discussion for rounds 122, 123 & 124

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rscowtown
Sign-up date range: 2/01/2016---1/29/2016
Claim date range 2/01/2016---1/29/2016 (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 been a member for at least one month: YES
- 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

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 123 of the OWS!

I am claiming rscowtown for some mug rugs. This is my first claim, and I have not yet been claimed.

A BIT ABOUT ME
Hi, I am Katherine and I live in the middle of Montana with my little family. I live with my husband, Eric, my 6-year-old daughter Lola, 2-year-old son Quentin and 8-year-old dog Whisper. I am a painter and stay at home mom. Besides painting, I enjoy visual journaling, simple beaded jewelry, and small sewing projects. I also like reading (when I have the chance), thrift shopping and cooking.

In this coming year, I have a few major goals. First, I am focusing on an art business class and certification. Second, I am getting the family on board for clearing clutter and getting the house nicely decorated. I would charactarize my style as eclectic/boho meets comfy woodsy cabin with touches of Moroccan color and pattern.

LIKES
Colors: Blue is my favorite color. But overall, I love rich saturated colors...jewel tones, earth tones and brights. I have a pinterest board that is just colors palettes I like.
Patterns: Stripes, dots, honeycomb,  Moroccan, paisley, modern florals, batiks.
Scents: Lilac, lily of the valley, jasmine, rose, lemon, grapefruit.
TV/movies: My husband and I don't watch many movies at all, and almost never out of the house. And we aren't really up on new tv...we tend to rewatch old stuff. 3rd Rock for the Sun, My Name is Earl, Scrubs, 30 Rock, Friends and House. My favorite show right now is Sherlock, but it's another year until the next season. Sad
Materials: Overall, I prefer natural materials: wood, ceramic, glass and natural fibers. But I also do like any material that is recycled/upcycled.
Misc.: Elephants are my favorite animals. I also love bats, cranes, dogs and snakes. Besides craftingand painting, I also enjoy cooking, baking, reading, hiking and camping. For jewelry, I prefer silver but also like mixed metals.

DISLIKES
Colors: Neons and pastels.
Patterns: Standard hippie stuff (peace signs, big flowers, smiley faces, etc.), cartoon characters, licenced prints, animal prints.
Scents: Patchouli or anything super musky.
Materials: Wool is fine as long as it's not on used in anything I wear.
Misc.: Anything concerning religion, politics, or anything else super polarizing. I don't like a lot of knick knacks...I have no place to put them and 2 kids who would destroy them. Not a fan of bright gold jewelry.

ALLERGIES
Cats, smoke and seafood.

PINTEREST
https://www.pinterest.com/stellatoescuro/
crochet and knit (anything but the washcloths or soap saver. And I always like more wristwarmers, but I have several)
get dressed: diys
get dressed: inspiration
get dressed: jewelry
god gave you hands: stuff i want to try
little kids: clothing
little kids: stuff to make for them
outdoor and garden (there is not much you could actually craft on here, but I thought I would throw it out there)
personal care
studioriffic
supplies

BIG WISHES
- A jar of whipped body butter. I can't get enough of the stuff.
- A super soft faux fur throw. This is more a large cost-wise, but I wanted to throw it out there because you never know what someone is trying to destash.
- Goats milk bar soap with an exfoliant like coffee grounds or poppyseeds.

SEWN STUFF
- Maxi skirt like either of these
http://melissaesplin.com/2013/10/sponsored-full-coverage-wrap-skirt-tutorial/
http://www.cottonandcurls.com/2012/08/the-one-hour-2-in-1-maxi-dress-or-skirt-tutorial/
- Knee-length skirt.
http://www.familyeverafterblog.com/2013/06/sewing-tutorial-bandage-style-knit-skirt.html
- Kimono top similar to this.
http://sewcaroline.com/2012/11/diy-kimono-top.html
- Produce bag like this one.
http://www.sewmamasew.com/2012/04/fat-quarter-project-produce-bags/
- Water bottle holders for each of my kids like this one. They each have a full-size Contigo bottle I can give you measurements for.
http://mellysews.com/2014/08/sew-water-bottle-holder.html
- Throw pillows or pillow covers for my couch. We want something that is a tangerine color (or tangerine dominant) and also comfy to lay on. If they had velvet in them, I would probably drive to your house and kiss you.
- Satin pillow cases, either one king or one queen. My daughter and I both get really tangly hair, so this would be really helpful. Im not too hung up on color here, but if I had a choice I would say blue/green/brown or grey for me and blue/purple for her.

HOME STUFF
- A little stool.
https://www.bloglovin.com/blogs/a-beautiful-mess-4526/make-a-furry-stool-with-gold-legs-in-minutes-4693857086
-A macramae chair.

MISC. STUFF
- Anything that falls into the category of sensory toys. I am at home with my son all day, and I always need more stuff to keep him entertained. Something that works for both kids would be nice too.
- Bath bombs. My kids love them.
- Dryer balls
- Some tissue paper flowers. I would like my daughter and I to have flowers in our room, but without the worry of spilling water.

- Vintage cotton sheets with floral prints
- Stuff for any of the projects on my pinterest board little kids: crafts

- Knee-high socks in bright stripes.
- A big abalone shell

I claim stellato_escuro for a crochet item, due 2/16/16

1/0/0

Hi! My name is Olivia.  I'm from California, USA. I love to crochet, draw, paint,and sculpt. I love Nature, plants, animals, books, and art.  I tend to like things a bit creepy, but not quite to the point of disturbing. I am married with two boys and a cat. I'm a bit picky about color, and I apologize in advance for that.  For home decor I prefer Earth tones and black. Think rustic, think forest. For clothing and accessories, I wear only dark colors (mostly black) and grey.  I dislike pastels, brights, and primary colors.  I love lace and delicate floral prints, as well as tiny polka dots. I don't really like cartoony or scenic prints. I am allergic to wool, but only for wearable items. I am very sensitive to artificial fragrances and cigarette smoke.
Thanks in advance for any claims!

The quick and easy way; anything off my OWS pinterest board : https://www.pinterest.com/laachapa/ows-board/

Sewing & Embroidery

- a skeleton stuffie for my son (like a rag or cupcake style doll, but not necessarily either)- something sturdy enough to play with. He's 5 so it doesn't need to be baby safe

- quilted place mats - set of 4 (is 4 still a med claim? Claim 2 at a time if you feel that is more size appropriate, and I can mix and match in pairs.) - simple is fine- if themed, I prefer nature themes (please no farm animals, fruits, or checkered prints)
- embroidered brooch or pendant - bones, skulls, insects, plants, bats, cats - check my pinterst for other themes that I like
   I have already received these from Averia
- musical pillow case (or 2) - cotton print with music notes or classical intsruments (french horn a plus!!) - it's for my teenage son so please nothing "girly" or cartoony

- a themed charm bracelet: black cats, toads, fungi, Kodama, memento mori, monarchs, the night sky

Bath and Body
- essential oils natural lotion bars!  Favorite scents are lavender, lemongrass, frankincense, rosemary, and patchouli but others are fine too (no cinnamon or clove please as they are a little too strong)

I claim rscowtown for a mug rug

1 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, 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, especially when paired with white

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/

I claim Averia for a Necklace Holder from her Pinterest (1,0,0)

Hi! I'm Summer from Texas. I live in the middle of the prairie on a 100 acre cattle ranch with my husband Matt, and three sons Tate (16), Tucker, (11), and Turner (11).

Our little house on the prairie is "rustic chic". I like clean lines and happy prints. I don't care for neons or gore-y stuff. We are allergic to cigarette smoke - the smells trigger our asthmatic issues - so I can not accept items from a smoking home.

I claim snowyangel for an Infinity Fashion Scarf,  due 2/24

2/0/0

Hi! My name is Olivia.  I'm from California, USA. I love to crochet, draw, paint,and sculpt. I love Nature, plants, animals, books, and art.  I tend to like things a bit creepy, but not quite to the point of disturbing. I am married with two boys and a cat. I'm a bit picky about color, and I apologize in advance for that.  For home decor I prefer Earth tones and black. Think rustic, think forest. For clothing and accessories, I wear only dark colors (mostly black) and grey.  I dislike pastels, brights, and primary colors.  I love lace and delicate floral prints, as well as tiny polka dots. I don't really like cartoony or scenic prints. I am allergic to wool, but only for wearable items. I am very sensitive to artificial fragrances and cigarette smoke.
Thanks in advance for any claims!

The quick and easy way; anything off my OWS pinterest board : https://www.pinterest.com/laachapa/ows-board/

Sewing & Embroidery
- sleeveless Victorian nightgown- petite Lrg - simple prarie style one - mid length - (I've always wanted one of these, is that weird?)
- embroidered pet portrait of my cat Gypsy (she's black) made to fit anywhere from a 4x4 to an 8x10 frame (photo available upon claim)
- a skeleton stuffie for my son (like a rag or cupcake style doll, but not necessarily either)- something sturdy enough to play with. He's 5 so it doesn't need to be baby safe
  He's been asking for one for over a year! some examples: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927621071/ , https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099925303982/
- quilted place mats - set of 4 (is 4 still a med claim? Claim 2 at a time if you feel that is more size appropriate, and I can mix and match in pairs.) - simple is fine- if themed, I prefer nature themes (please no farm animals, fruits, or checkered prints)
- embroidered brooch or pendant - bones, skulls, insects, plants, bats, cats - check my pinterst for other themes that I like
   I have already received these from Averia
- musical pillow case (or 2) - cotton print with music notes or classical intsruments (french horn a plus!!) - it's for my teenage son so please nothing "girly" or cartoony
 
Jewelry and Beading
- gemstone jewelry (no earrings please) My favorites are labradorite, rainbow moonstone, moss agate, snowflake obsidian, onyx, golden rutile quartz, and amber.
- a beaded moth brooch similar to this https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927976724/ or this https://www.pinterest.com/pin/453808099927976681/
- a themed charm bracelet: black cats, toads, fungi, Kodama, memento mori, monarchs, the night sky

Bath and Body
- essential oils natural lotion bars!  Favorite scents are lavender, lemongrass, frankincense, rosemary, and patchouli but others are fine too (no cinnamon or clove please as they are a little too strong)
- essential oils natural bar soaps (no cinnamon or clove please as they are a little too strong)
- lip balms!  I have a serious addiction, partly due to chronically dry lips!
- bath bombs! No artificial fragrances please
