Ongoing Wish Swap Round 135 March 2017

Click here for the Gallery/Discussion for round 135

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rscowtown
Sign-up date range: 3/1/2017---3/31/2017
Claim date range 3/1/2017---3/31/2017 (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 55 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 comments: 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 claim 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 awesome 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 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 sent 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 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: 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 claims out, 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 cans and receipts are required for all international claims. If you can not provide a receipt and the item does not arrive you will need to resend the claim.

If you have questions, please PM rscowtown. Welcome to the March 2017 Round 135 of the OWS!

I claim Mlsocci74 for soothing vapor shower tabs from her Pinterest.  (Due Mar 19) 2/0/0

Hi!  Im Alicia! Im a polymer chemist currently living in Pittsburgh, PA.  I live with my fiance and our two cats.

Likes:  lots of color! (especially blues and greens), argyle, sciencey things (chemistry especially of course), using old, unloved things to make new, useful ones, wolves, video games (I love Luigi and Pokemon), books (fantasy FTW), and tabletop RPGs (World of Darkness specifically)
 
Dislikes:  Super pink and cutesy or death/goth things.  Also, the color orange (its fine in small amounts, just dont generally like it as the main color).
 
No allergies here!

Crafts
 
Anything from my pinterest would be loved, as well as anything inspired by the things on there.  Crafts for DJ is the board for my fiance - he has gotten some great things from Craftster in the past, and theyre always appreciated!

Homemade lotions/body butters- I have eczema, so anything with dry skin love would be great (please no soap though, full up on that at the moment!). 

Knitted wool socks - US womens size 9.  I got turned on to these when I lived in Wisconsin, and they are the bomb!

Tie-dyed anything, especially clothing.  I would wear the crap out of just some basic tie dye t-shirts.

Alice in Wonderland themed kitchen towels or potholders.

Bowser amigurumi

Tree of life pendant

Friendship bracelet-style watch (example on pinterest)

A shadowbox with a mash up of the Hufflepuff and Slytherin house crests that can be used to display our two wands - we got engaged at Universal Studios in front of Hogwarts, so they are special to us.

Resin pendants - no bugs, but just about anything else that Ive seen put in resin would be cool.  Magnets would work too, instead of a pendant.

Flannel PJ pants - plaid would be extra awesome, and Id prefer drawstring over elastic waist.

Small duffel bag with room for Zumba gear - basically just tennis shoes and a change of clothes, but it needs to zip.

Hip bag (the kind without the lower leg strap) - examples on pinterest

Craft Supplies
I totally support reusing supplies, so used is always okay. Im also okay with all-supply claims if you dont feel like crafting for me!
 
I just started to get into art journaling, so I would love any of the affiliated supplies, especially:
Acrylic paints- all colors
Stamps/stencils/ink pads (especially good background patterns or an alphabet set)
Embossing powder
Heat gun
Any kind of ink spray
Washi tape
Paint pens - the finer, the better

Fabric- plain cuts large enough to make clothing in things like wool, linen, nice cottons.  I have lots of crazy polyester prints, but I want to make some nice classic basics.  I dont really use quilting cottons.

Any garment sewing (not quilting) magazines, especially Threads and BurdaStyle/Burda World of Fashion

Lighter weights of iron on interfacing (for clothes, not bags) - knit or woven

Serger thread - any colors - groups of 3 or 4 cones is best

Cotton cording to make coiled fabric bowls - these are my go-to for charity sewing, so I use up a lot of this stuff!

Any of the sewing patterns on my Pattern Lust Pinterest Board

Thanks in advance to whoever makes my wish come true!!

I'm in!!! And I claim fishstix43 for a Pinterest surprise (due out March 28)

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

Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband Uwe and two little ones: Lea (5) and Hanna (3). I don't like cigarette/cigar smoke, but have no allergies to speak of (some artificial scents mostly, cats and dogs, but that doesn't matter for anything but wearables, and those are washable!). Our house is smoke- and pet-free (except for a few dust bunnies and maybe the odd spider).

My favourite colours are black (esp. for wearables), then dark teal, deep purple and dark brown (love the cool and soft shades), cream & taupe (sand, milk, stone, wool... think nature), and pink for accents. Always, always, always black will be a perfect choice! So: darker intensive or lighter "bland" colours. I use those colours for the kids as well (but they also get bright shades, like pink, aqua, turquoise, light green, and Hanna loves yellow). 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 mixed or 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: my Craftster Pinterest wishlist. Big wishes right now are there, but I have lots of things I want on other Pinterest boards, so if you find something there... Especially here Jewelry or here T-shirts I love the shirts I've received so far and am wearing them constantly. But I still 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.

Embellished / Decorated Shirts
I love the ones I've received so far and am wearing them constantly!
I prefer a round, wide neckline, so a scoop neck or boatneck would be best (don't like anything too close to the throat). So 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 thinner fabrics. Women's plus size 26-30 or 3x-5x. As for colour, black, white or grey is perfect, as are any of my favourite colours.
If possible, I prefer stencilled/drawn/painted/appliqued/embroidered etc. over the printable iron-ons, because those tend to get destroyed in our washing machine, even in the wool cycle. I've also received some awesome vinyl iron-ons, they work great!
Themes: Anything you think might work for me, or see here for ideas: T-Shirts
Some ideas:
O XKCD t-shirts (baby, natural parenting, grownups, counter-clockwise)
O Rickroll shirt... Or can just be Rick Astley, without the rolling... Wink
O Again anything Labyrinth for me... Jareth, or a quotation, or... preferably in black and white (or a teeny bit glittery?)
O Calvin & Hobbes
O Disc World! Can be just a quotation, or especially Vimes & Sybil, Vetinari, UU, Granny Weatherwax...

Sewn
O Ironing Cover for small folding table (I have a table exactly like that) or:
O Ironing Tote (folds out into an ironing mat
O Medium sized Pleated Tote, a very dark deep teal or brown would be a favourite, or black is always good, but with a zipper closure please!
O Or a tote/purse (with a zipper closure if possible) like one of these: Buttercup Bag; One Hour Bag; Carolina Breeze Bag
O If anyone has a nice dark black/teal/brown/purple 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 Too much lightweight cotton or rayon fabric? Then I'd love something like the Tina Givens Bloom dress! (Maybe without the slit, because I'm not wearing that many layers!) Bloom Dress pattern (free pattern from sewtinagivens.com)
O Fabric Wall Organizer (I have a cream/grey one already which was taken over by my husband.), I'd love my own! Maybe a bit more colourful than grey so we always grab the correct things.
O Binding or bias tape: patterned or solid, scrappy or single colour, from a fat quarter or a long strip from a sheet...

Knit or crochet
O Yoga socks / boot cuffs / leg warmers to warm my ankles (I want to keep on wearing dresses and skirts in fall and winter) (maybe some cream coloured ones?)
O An otherwise fast and easy knit hat with a leaves overlay like this? knit leaves
O Knit Berry Baby hat for heads 55cm/22" in a similar soft purple or strawberry red (if you add pips in the strawberry so it won't look like a tomato: yellow please!) or raspberry pink or blueberry indigo... I'd love two because the girls keep fighting for the (by now way too small) one we received three years ago...
O Spiral heel socks
O Any socks really, cable, plain, self-striping, knit or or crochet...
O Big wish: A big, beautiful purple beanie (dark cool soft shade; I have a warmer/burgundy one already) maybe like this one made by lydiaharper for mermaidcafe but I need it for myself, so for a 60cm head! mermaidcafe's hat It doesn't have to be that pattern, or really any pattern at all, it just has to be long and wide enough so it doesn't keep slipping upwards on my hair. A deep teal or black would be lovely, too. My Ravelry Favourites are here.

Jewelry
O Anything Labyrinth (esp. Jareth!) or Calvin & Hobbes for me... painted, sketched, etched, crochet, knit, Fimo, sewn, beaded, woven, whittled, embroidered, whatever!
O Flat dark stone pendant with 4 crystals (or glittery glass) like this (two smaller, two larger) Flat dark stone pendant with crystals 4 glittery things (2 larger, 2 smaller) to represent my family
O Glow-in-the-Dark Tree of Life Pendant pretty much like this. or different!
O Han and Leia rings - one saying "i love you" and the other "i know"
O Mini hooplas or tiny art inchies, rinchies, twinchies in your favourite medium. Those make great pendants! I don't wear brooches, but I have lots of supplies to make a necklace for your piece of art! All t-shirt ideas would work very well for this, too!Maybe somthing from here as inspiration,
O Discworld related jewelry would be very much appreciated!

Other
O Something small printed/stamped/embroidered with dandelions on it: A tea wallet, a notebook, a little zippered coin purse or tampon wallet, a earbud case, pendant, anything! Dandelions!
O Covered tape measure: sheep, zebra, penguin, kitten, or something completely different! Even a plain one in a cute/ptretty/cool fabric without any critters. Baaaa!
O Lanterns for tea lights made from cans with holes hammered into them, example: Tin can lanterns - pretty or funny.
O Han and Leia Mugs - please include "i love you" and "i know" (on the inside bottom would be my favourite!) Han & Leia silhouette mugs
O mini stamps for "filofaxing" - appointments, birthdays, dates, movies, etc. - also work well for greeting cards (a candle, a cake or cupcake...)!  (various on my OWS board)
O larger stamps - a simple leaf design, or swirls, also maybe flowers in parts, or something like one of those castle stamp sets. Meant for printing on fabric, to go on t-shirts. Maybe some type of roll for a continuing pattern? I know I had a pin for this somewhere...
O Leather Planner cover in A6, big enough so I can put a regular notebook and a calendar in it (or like the smaller Moleskine flex) (2cm/less than 1"). I love plain oiled leather in (dark) brown.
O Screen printing kit (I would so love to try this!)
O Pillowcases: 40cm/16 inch square, some examples here: Pillow, Pillow, Pillow or here Inspiration Board
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? Inspiration Board
O Tablet stand
O This Pottery Yarn Bowl 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 tall enough, I can always put a stone in as a weight! Right now I'm using a smallish sugar pot.)
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 "Where the Wild Things Are" loved by me and my daughters!


Supplies (scraps or used is fine, as are supply only claims!)
Amazon Wishlist
O Metal stamping blanks & stamps (stamps: especially tiny plain hearts (filled or outline), small/tiny stars, a dandelion set (flower & fluff))
O Frixion pens: highlighters and especially those tiny stamps!
O Chunky Yarn in my colours, or kiddie colours, natural fibers preferred ("we" are starting loom knitting)
O Always: fabric! (esp. solid black!, teals; purples, or smaller patterns, esp. polka dots)
O Always: Sewing thread! All the colours.
O Embroidery hoops! All sizes, especially 4-8" - but if you have a smaller or larger one, those are very welcome, too!
O Fabric paint (plain, or can also be glittery, metallic or pearlescent) - I love the kind that doesn't have to be ironed to fix the paint. Some just have to dry for a few days, other go into the oven.
O Fimo soft (all the colours!) and Fimo Effect and Fimo Kids
O Plain white silk scarves, shawls, foulards, handkerchieves etc. for me to paint
O Binding or bias tape (bought or handmade, plain or patterned)

Claiming kittykill for jewelry from her Pinterest (due out April 7)

2/0/0
This is my second claim this round.
kittykill for jewelry from her Pinterest (due out April 7)
fishstix43 for a Pinterest surprise (due out March 28)


Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband Uwe and two little ones: Lea (5) and Hanna (3). I don't like cigarette/cigar smoke, but have no allergies to speak of (some artificial scents mostly, cats and dogs, but that doesn't matter for anything but wearables, and those are washable!). Our house is smoke- and pet-free (except for a few dust bunnies and maybe the odd spider).

My favourite colours are black (esp. for wearables), then dark teal, deep purple and dark brown (love the cool and soft shades), cream & taupe (sand, milk, stone, wool... think nature), and pink for accents. Always, always, always black will be a perfect choice! So: darker intensive with a bit of lighter "bland" colours. I use those colours for the kids as well (but they also get bright shades, like pink, aqua, turquoise, light green, and Hanna loves yellow). 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 mixed or 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: my Craftster Pinterest wishlist. Big wishes right now are there, but I have lots of things I want on other Pinterest boards, so if you find something there... Especially here Jewelry or here T-shirts I love the shirts I've received so far and am wearing them constantly. But I still 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.

Embellished / Decorated Shirts
I love the ones I've received so far and am wearing them constantly!
I prefer a round, wide neckline, so a scoop neck or boatneck would be best (don't like anything too close to the throat). So 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 thinner fabrics. Women's plus size 26-30 or 3x-5x. As for colour, black, white or grey is perfect, as are any of my favourite colours.
If possible, I prefer stencilled/drawn/painted/appliqued/embroidered etc. over the printable iron-ons, because those tend to get destroyed in our washing machine, even in the wool cycle. I've also received some awesome vinyl iron-ons, they work great!
Themes: Anything you think might work for me, or see here for ideas: T-Shirts
Some ideas:
O XKCD t-shirts (baby, natural parenting, grownups, counter-clockwise)
O Rickroll shirt... Or can just be Rick Astley, without the rolling... Wink
O Again anything Labyrinth for me... Jareth, or a quotation, or... preferably in black and white (or a teeny bit glittery?)
O Calvin & Hobbes
O Disc World! Can be just a quotation, or especially Vimes & Sybil, Vetinari, UU, Granny Weatherwax...

Sewn
O Ironing Cover for small folding table (I have a table exactly like that) or:
O Ironing Tote (folds out into an ironing mat
O Medium sized Pleated Tote, a very dark deep teal or brown would be a favourite, or black is always good, but with a zipper closure please!
O Or a tote/purse (with a zipper closure if possible) like one of these: Buttercup Bag; One Hour Bag; Carolina Breeze Bag
O If anyone has a nice dark black/teal/brown/purple 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 Too much lightweight cotton or rayon fabric? Then I'd love something like the Tina Givens Bloom dress! (Maybe without the slit, because I'm not wearing that many layers!) Bloom Dress pattern (free pattern from sewtinagivens.com)
O Fabric Wall Organizer (I have a cream/grey one already which was taken over by my husband.), I'd love my own! Maybe a bit more colourful than grey so we always grab the correct things.
O Binding or bias tape: patterned or solid, scrappy or single colour, from a fat quarter or a long strip from a sheet...

Knit or crochet
O Yoga socks / boot cuffs / leg warmers to warm my ankles (I want to keep on wearing dresses and skirts in fall and winter) (maybe some cream coloured ones?)
O An otherwise fast and easy knit hat with a leaves overlay like this? knit leaves
O Knit Berry Baby hat for heads 55cm/22" in a similar soft purple or strawberry red (if you add pips in the strawberry so it won't look like a tomato: yellow please!) or raspberry pink or blueberry indigo... I'd love two because the girls keep fighting for the (by now way too small) one we received three years ago...
O Spiral heel socks
O Any socks really, cable, plain, self-striping, knit or or crochet...
O Big wish: A big, beautiful purple beanie (dark cool soft shade; I have a warmer/burgundy one already) maybe like this one made by lydiaharper for mermaidcafe but I need it for myself, so for a 60cm head! mermaidcafe's hat It doesn't have to be that pattern, or really any pattern at all, it just has to be long and wide enough so it doesn't keep slipping upwards on my hair. A deep teal or black would be lovely, too. My Ravelry Favourites are here.

Jewelry
O Anything Labyrinth (esp. Jareth!) or Calvin & Hobbes for me... painted, sketched, etched, crochet, knit, Fimo, sewn, beaded, woven, whittled, embroidered, whatever!
O Flat dark stone pendant with 4 crystals (or glittery glass) like this (two smaller, two larger) Flat dark stone pendant with crystals 4 glittery things (2 larger, 2 smaller) to represent my family
O Glow-in-the-Dark Tree of Life Pendant pretty much like this. or different!
O Han and Leia rings - one saying "i love you" and the other "i know"
O Mini hooplas or tiny art inchies, rinchies, twinchies in your favourite medium. Those make great pendants! I don't wear brooches, but I have lots of supplies to make a necklace for your piece of art! All t-shirt ideas would work very well for this, too!Maybe somthing from here as inspiration,
O Discworld related jewelry would be very much appreciated!

Other
O Something small printed/stamped/embroidered with dandelions on it: A tea wallet, a notebook, a little zippered coin purse or tampon wallet, a earbud case, pendant, anything! Dandelions!
O Covered tape measure: sheep, zebra, penguin, kitten, or something completely different! Even a plain one in a cute/ptretty/cool fabric without any critters. Baaaa!
O Lanterns for tea lights made from cans with holes hammered into them, example: Tin can lanterns - pretty or funny.
O Han and Leia Mugs - please include "i love you" and "i know" (on the inside bottom would be my favourite!) Han & Leia silhouette mugs
O mini stamps for "filofaxing" - appointments, birthdays, dates, movies, etc. - also work well for greeting cards (a candle, a cake or cupcake...)!  (various on my OWS board)
O larger stamps - a simple leaf design, or swirls, also maybe flowers in parts, or something like one of those castle stamp sets. Meant for printing on fabric, to go on t-shirts. Maybe some type of roll for a continuing pattern? I know I had a pin for this somewhere...
O Leather Planner cover in A6, big enough so I can put a regular notebook and a calendar in it (or like the smaller Moleskine flex) (2cm/less than 1"). I love plain oiled leather in (dark) brown.
O Screen printing kit (I would so love to try this!)
O Pillowcases: 40cm/16 inch square, some examples here: Pillow, Pillow, Pillow or here Inspiration Board
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? Inspiration Board
O Tablet stand
O This Pottery Yarn Bowl 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 tall enough, I can always put a stone in as a weight! Right now I'm using a smallish sugar pot.)
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 "Where the Wild Things Are" loved by me and my daughters!


Supplies (scraps or used is fine, as are supply only claims!)
Amazon Wishlist
O Metal stamping blanks & stamps (stamps: especially tiny plain hearts (filled or outline), small/tiny stars, a dandelion set (flower & fluff))
O Frixion pens: highlighters and especially those tiny stamps!
O Chunky Yarn in my colours, or kiddie colours, natural fibers preferred ("we" are starting loom knitting)
O Always: fabric! (esp. solid black!, teals; purples, or smaller patterns, esp. polka dots)
O Always: Sewing thread! All the colours.
O Embroidery hoops! All sizes, especially 4-8" - but if you have a smaller or larger one, those are very welcome, too!
O Fabric paint (plain, or can also be glittery, metallic or pearlescent) - I love the kind that doesn't have to be ironed to fix the paint. Some just have to dry for a few days, other go into the oven.
O Fimo soft (all the colours!) and Fimo Effect and Fimo Kids
O Plain white silk scarves, shawls, foulards, handkerchieves etc. for me to paint
O Binding or bias tape (bought or handmade, plain or patterned)
O Fabric or anything really from these:  (used is great: bedsheet, pillowcase, totebag, scraps, yardage...)
O gift card/voucher/coupon for Sayila, Beadworks (UK), Beadaholique (UK), or Etsy (for patterns, usually)
O To make things with for myself mostly: original care bears, forever friends (the teddy bears!), classic pooh (the e.h. shepard drawings), very hungry caterpillar, barbapapa, moomins
O For the 3yo: Very Hungry Caterpillar, Peppa Pig, Anna & Olaf from Frozen, Minions w/ that fluffy unicorn
O For the 5yo: Mia&Me (Mia and Onchao, Lyria) and Elsa from Frozen
O Anything Lazy Town! Both are huge fans of Stephanie and Sportacus!

If you want to claim me for something that is not on my lists, don't worry and just go ahead (or pop me a message if you are really unsure)! I just know I'll realize how desperately I want & need it anyway as soon as you claim me for it. So: Thank you for claiming me!
