Ongoing Wish Swap Round 125 April 2016

Click here for the Gallery/Discussion for round 125

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rscowtown
Sign-up date range: 4/01/2016---4/30/2016
Claim date range 4/01/2016---4/30/2016 (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, heck no! when the wall are starting to bow and the ceiling looks like its gonna cave in, we will just get a bigger room!

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO--everyone is warmly welcomed! Hey Tell us about where YOU live! share some pix, slap some up on a new pinterest board, let us stalk you from afar....and long to visit you!

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 you betcha, and I got a great co-organizer all lined up
- Is at least 18 years old: YES im gonna be 54 this year wheeeee!

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
- Does not have any negative canned precooked meat product: 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 gelatin person to post a list at the beginning of the next month.

The size of the can 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 gelatin 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 eatly items folks are receiving from their claims!

Did you make something that you'd just eat 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 had 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 were spammed to a new home(s) cuz they don't like sitting in my storage rooms down in the store. Do you have extra stuff that needs a new home? list it in a post, and give us a nudge to add it to our wish lists!

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 meaty to supply some prizes!

These 2 required PM's are part of communication and are used when giving canned precooked meat product 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 125 {April 2016}
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 gelatin swap ever--1 claim; those who have been in swaps before--2 claims; Friends of Craftster--3 claims) Please type 1, 2 or 3--->

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?
 
8. Are you brave enough to just stand in the rain? if you are, post and tell us when and where, can be any time in your life!

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 gelatin 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.

Unspammed 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 Unspammed Claim Limit outstanding at any one time.

If you are a friend of craftster you can have 3 unspammed claims open at a time and no more than 6 total claims open (open meaning in transit as well as not yet spammed) no matter how many have been posted. As an example, You claim 3 times, send all 3 cans, 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 unspammed and 4 claims total between unspammed 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 unspammed. 2/1/0, 2/2/0, 3/1/1

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

If you have questions, please PM me! Welcome to the April 2016 Round 125 of the OWS!

I claim DearBluebird for a shirt from her Pinterest board

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). Besides being a mom, taxi driver, housekeeper, and chef, I also work at a local church as the Director of Children's Ministry. I love my job  my little family!

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.

On to the list - hopefully there's lots to choose from!

I claim Holliewood for a supply package! (2,0,0)

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). Besides being a mom, taxi driver, housekeeper, and chef, I also work at a local church as the Director of Children's Ministry. I love my job  my little family!

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.

On to the list - hopefully there's lots to choose from!

I claim texscrapper for some stuff on her list that i gots here.

Hi I'm Laurel from Wisconsin. Married to Mark for 32 years, mom to a boy 23 and girl 28 and grandma to a 6 year old. We have 3 rescued dachshunds, I love the old ugly ones that no one wants.

** Please pm me if you find something on my pin boards that isn't listed below, sometimes I pin stuff for ideas but may have already made the item and forgotten to mark it or just pinned it for a random idea.

Please do NOT send items with roses or clowns on them (aka stuff i don't like) thanks!

WISHLIST STUFF:

Here is my swap/claim wish list Pinterest board:  

https://www.pinterest.com/rscowtown/ongoing-wish-pinterest-swap-board/

Anything from my Amazon wish list (updated 4/11/16): USED IS FINE for books.    http://amzn.com/w/1Z0HF1CX825QZ

More postcards that I can send to members of our church when we pick families praying for families names, I'm out of the ones I had been given for claims. Thanks Anne!!

**NEW OBSESSION FOR 2016** foxes. I now own about every rubber stamp of foxes there are, but would love love love something fun created by you with images of foxes. a fox garland would be sweet! stamped, cut out from magazine pix.

Wind chime/hanging stuff: foxes, dachshunds, tulips, sun, little birch pieces, moon, beads are some ideas. I have ceiling space!!

Another new thing in 2016 I'd love are nurse themed pins or earrings. I am an LPN and if you have some fun ideas go for it! (just skip the roses and clowns, cuz they ain't welcome here)

or fun themed 2" from the ear hole maximum length.(not post) on wire earrings, make 2 different ones same theme--I love wearing 2 that are not the same to see if anyone notices  yup I am weird

or Shrink Plastic earrings! you can come up with some awesome things for those!!


I love the Wild Thornberrys. Fabric of them would be fantastic!! its a cartoon on Nickelodian. Find some flat or fitted sheets of them? send it! that will work too

We really could use these **For Hubby**pairs of standard size pillow cases in these themes:
Green Bay Packer print fabric
Milwaukee Brewers print
Wisconsin Badgers


Orphan quilt squares--if you have some that long for a home, I'll gladly take them in, 12x12 prefered, but any size I can adapt to fit, pattern or colors (but no roses or clowns allowed)

or if you have fabric scraps and feel like making string squares like these, I'd love them:  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653826004452/

some of these Patriotic quilt squares would be sweet. I have started a patriotic quilt for me, and would love to add squares you make to it (yes these are not square, but that's ok; my pieces are various sized too):  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653829119352/

or these quilt squares: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/104497653831531154/

HUGEMUNGOUS OMGOSH I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER IF YOU FIND ME ONE OF THESE: VW emblem from the front of a VW bus (must be the big VW not the small one from a beetle, cuz I got dat)  must be used like mebby from a junk yard?

I'm claiming rscowtown for some foxy items Smiley

I'm Carmen from Wisconsin, married to Dave for just under 20 years and we have a 5 year old daughter, a whiny Basset Hound and a dozen laying hens.  Our passion is DIY projects and making foods from scratch. 

Allergies: mold/mildew; I also can't handle strong scents (perfumes, smoke)

I'm perfectly fine with thrifted, recycled, or gently used items
Pinterest and etsy faves for stalking

I have Swap supplies and Swap wish boards on Pinterest, but feel free to check out my other boards, especially the sewing one as I'm pretty weak in sewing techniques.

LIKES
Favorite colors and combos: jewel tones and primary colors - esp blue (Delft!, cobalt), green and their darker versions (maroon, navy, etc), neutrals; lately I'm liking the aqua/pale yellow/grey combo, bright pink
Favorite animals: chickens, bunnies, mice, non-scary dragons
Favorite movies/tv shows: Foyle's War / WWII era, NCIS (Gibbs!), anything with Cary Grant (esp Father Goose), Disney and Pixar
Patterns/themes I love: chevrons, flowers, hexagons, toile, organizing (if it holds something else, I love it!)*, food/cooking-related, polka dots, angels, Green Bay Packers, gardening, Norway, chickens/farm, Biblical

DISLIKES
Least favorite colors: orange, olive green, neons/chartreuse, turquoise
Least favorite themes/patterns: sharp angular geometrics, steampunk, zodiac, mustaches, clowns, sock monkeys, horror, zombies

In no particular order
Sewing
  • I need some journal pen holders for an A5-sized notebook.
  • any bags, totes, baskets, box pouch / shaving kit (similar to these) - see * note above.
  • I could use a new lunch bag, but I don't care for the paper-sack style; it needs to fit my pyrex dishes (min 7.5x6x3")
  • cloth napkins
  • small wallet - only big enough to hold 2-3 cards and maybe a little cash OR a waist/fanny pack (has to be big enough to fit XL around)
  • placemats - something that will go with pale yellow, dark green or light/bright blue
  • Barbie or Ken clothes - we esp need pants for Ken and dresses are always fun.  Simple Barbie dresses like this are fine
  • ballet slippers like these
  • panty liners like these
  • fabric scarves - multi-colors are great because I can match with more outfits

Other crafts
  • Jewelry; I love delicate pieces and dangling earrings.  Also shawl pins.  I haven't gone much beyond connecting jump rings - so fancier hooks/fittings, wire wrapped-stones, etc. would be great.
  • Knit/crochet - I do a lot of this myself but I'd love some bunnies or longer cowls.
  • Garden decorations such as dragonflies
  • Fabric or ribbon bows
  • Decorated hoop for my craft room (light blue walls)


Supplies
  • Watercolor pencils - high on the wish list
  • bookmarks - homemade are great!  I always seem to be using scrap pieces of paper.
  • Yarn ideas: especially in the lace through DK weights; gradient yarns (long colorways) or gradient mini skeins; I've heard good things Wollmeize yarns, but haven't tried them yet; solid or semi-solid sock yarns - I only seem to have multi-colored ones
  • plain t-shirts or sweatshirts in sizes child 7/8-12, women's XL and men's 2-3X tall. (I love doing freezer paper stenciling)
  • scrapbooking pens / markers and ink pads (mine are drying out).  I really need a brown ink pad
  • fabric - looking specifically for patriotic colors, esp dark blue, red, white; would be ok with "antique" versions of these colors.  But really any fabric - current stash is limited; I love vintage and Riley Blake
  • jump rings in variety of colors and sizes
  • die-cutting templates (spellbinders, etc) and embossing folders
  • any miniatures, esp those that would work well in a fairy garden
  • buttons - especially large plain and fun. I add these to crocheted flowers and slippers
  • Bullet journal supplies: washi tape, colorful pens, etc.
  • pie in the sky: gallon-sized glass jars

Books - Used is perfectly fine
Harmony Knit or Crochet guides  I have a few already pm me for a list.  Or any other knit/crochet stitch dictionaries

Misc
Something from your state or country that I can start teaching my daughter about the world
Or any surprise!  We love getting mail Smiley
