Hello I'm Laura from South Dakota!  I own a jungle of rescued pets, a mom to a crazy 3.5yr and 1yr old boys, a husband stuck in the 80's and I love home decorating. I love gray, gray/white combos, teal/aqua, brown/white, black/white for colors(almost any except orange, yellow, pink or neons). Anything involving/inspiring being a mom(my fav occupation!), pet rescue/adoption or something for my boys is awesome too. I will always love adding to my fabric stash too(shh don't tell my hubby). I don't mind used or re-purposed items either.... just have fun!

I claim Kittykill for jewelry from her Pinterest (due June 7)


Hi! My name is Olivia and I'm married with two boys. We live in a small apartment about 20 minutes from the Pacific Ocean along California's Central Coast.  

My absolute favorite color is green. Forest green, mossy green, and jade.  I'm also partial to the blue-green shades.  The color I wear the most however is black.  Often all black.  I've also been known to wear green (but never primary green!), brown, and other Earthy colors.  But I'm not picky about color! Lol! Not at all! Pffft!

Artificial fragrances will trigger allergies in my home, but we love things that are naturally scented with Essential oils.

I'm a practicing animist and respect all animals and all things Nature. I prefer vegan crafted items and supplies unless you know it is "ethically" produced, foraged, or repurposed. I apologize for this complication but I must walk the talk as much as possible, and lately my conscience has been nagging at me.  

If you'd like, you can browse my Etsy favorites, they should give you a pretty darn good idea of my aesthetic. I have favorited many items relevant to my wishlist.  https://www.etsy.com/people/spiderlingdreams/favorites/items-i-love

Thanks in advance!  

1. Gardening Half Apron. Something slightly gathered; I am a size petite large.  No ruffles. Something in black or olive green would be nice.  Favorite themes for fabric include botanicals, gardening, Nature, stripes, polka dots. I love these fabrics! https://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/4797278-little-wildflowers-by-swanbones & https://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/5174969-fernomenal-ferns-by-linda_facci
2. Cloth napkins - nothing fancy - solid colors are fine, but no white please
3. Blueberry themed pot holders
4. Cooking apron (full) - I'd love something cute like sushi, strawberries, blueberries, avocados or black cats - a nice sturdy material would be great for lots of loving and washing (I'm a messy cook!) https://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/2889577-sushi-by-kristinnohe  & https://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/5705555-fruits-veggies-by-nikkilately
5. Seed bead dangle earrings (I need ear wires that close though because my piercings are stretched- bonus is that if you don't already have some, you could always fashion some out of wire and not have to worry about gauge!) Please keep in mind my preferred colors.  An all black pair would rock my world! Here's a couple pairs that I like https://www.etsy.com/listing/496277977/beaded-earrings-seed-bead-earrings &  https://www.etsy.com/listing/235374069/long-fringe-earrings-seed-bead-earrings
6. Wire wrapped jewelry. My absolute favorite gemstone is golden rutile quartz, but it doesn't have to be gemstone, I also like (ethically foraged) shells, fossils, bones and the like. My fave metals are brass and silver, but whatever you have is fine as long as it's a metal color and not some of the rainbow metallics.  
7. Ceramic beads
8. Lotion bars - EO scented only, no artificial fragrance please. Some of my favorite scents are lavender, frankincense, rosemary, rose, sandalwood, and patchouli. Blends are always fun.
9. Soap bars - EO scented only please, no artificial fragrance
10. Bath bombs! My son loves how they fizz, but he has sensitive skin so please avoid dyes and artificial fragrances. EOs are ok!
11. An embroidered (or cross stitch, etc.) piece that says "Familia" (without the quotes) and is decorated with wildflowers, or trees (oaks and/or pines), or maybe a blackberry bramble or ferns or something like that.  I have an 8 x 10 frame for it, but I can also use a 5x7 frame if that is more manageable.
12. An embroidery that says "harm none" (without the quotes) with any woodland plants, animals, and or insects.  Something more prim or stylized and less baby nursery would be nice.  
13. Anything Star Wars themed appropriate for a 7 year old boy (my son)
14. Anything spider themed (for me)
15. Anything Kodama themed, because I love Kodama!
16. Insect brooch - any craft. Nothing cartoony though.  I like moths, beetles, bumble bees, and spiders.
17. Weather resistant wind chime for my back patio - I love rustic styles best
18. Macrame plant hanger
19. Tie dye top - short or long sleeve ladies T, scoop or v- neck , or tank top.  Combos I'd like: navy-black,  plum-black, olive-black, dark green-black, plum-navy,  teal-black, burgundy-black, two of these listed colors and black, or even just one single color from this list.

1. Wire for wire wrapping! Any metal any gauge! No rainbow colors though, just metal colors. Brass is a fave.(Thank you snowyangel!)
2. Clear gesso
3. Nature themed washi tape
4. Wool yarn (aran, sport, worsted, dk) from an ethical producer like Malabrigo, Manos del Uruguay, Rosy Green Wool, Madelinetosh, and Blue Sky Fibers (just as a side note, since these yarns are pricier, one skein will in most cases equal one medium)
5. Organic cotton yarn - I mostly use this for baby toys, so soft or Earthy colors are best - no brights please
6. Apothecary jars (with cork tops?) for storing small natural curiosities.  I'm thinking spice jar size down to just slightly larger than jewelry size.
7. Vetiver essential oil - none of my local stores carry it!
8. Naturally shed feathers - Do you or a neighbor have chickens?  I would love some naturally shed rooster feathers!  Do you are a family member have a parrot?  I would love some naturally shed parrot feathers!
9. Black stamp pad - I found some cute rubber stamps at the goodwill, and I'd love to use them
10. 2.5-3 inch unfinished wood craft rings, like these https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01L5LD5I6/ref=mp_s_a_1_14_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1494867688&sr=8-14&keywords=wooden+rings+for+crafts
11. 3/4 inch and 1 inch unfinished wood round beads (Thanks snowyangel!)
12. Gouache! I'd love to start working in gouache! So far I have: none.  Brands I'm interested in are DaVinci, Holbein, Winsor & newton, Utrecht, Caran, but as long as it's Artist grade gouache and not Student gouache, brand doesn't matter.  Sorry, apparently I'm a pigment snob as well as a yarn snob. Lol!
13. Sorry, I'm stuck here! Feel free to send me something you think I'd like.  You know, that thing I didn't know I needed but I do?
