Ongoing Wish Swap Round 137 May 2017

Click here for the Gallery/Discussion for round 137

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rscowtown
Sign-up date range: 5/1/2017---5/31/2017
Claim date range 5/1/2017---5/31/2017 (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

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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 May 2017 Round 137 of the OWS!

The first person up for claiming is anna.wahnsinn as she was the last person who made a claim in the previous round.

Here is her info:

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! I like plain fabrics, or (stylized) patterns like leaves and blossoms; polka dot... Repurposed and/or used is always fine. I 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 (don't like anything too close to the throat). And I love 3/4 sleeves (or long), but tees 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 or grey is perfect, as are any of my favourite colours.
Stencilled/drawn/painted/appliqued/embroidered etc. (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 that I put on shirts myself, they work great!
Themes: T-Shirts
Some specific ideas:
O Rickroll shirt... Or can just be Rick Astley, without the rolling... Wink
O XKCD t-shirts (baby, natural parenting, grownups, counter-clockwise)
O 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 anything really (Vimes & Sybil, Vetinari, Angua, UU, Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, Tiffany Aching, Death)

Sewn
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 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 I won't grab his correct things...

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 or cowl with a leaves overlay like this! knit leaves
O Spiral heel socks
O Any socks really, cable, plain, self-striping, knit or or crochet...
O 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 I want 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 from 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, wallet 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 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, aqua gym, gymnastic-y, birthdays, dates, movies, etc. - also works well for greeting cards (a candle, a cake or cupcake...)!  (various on my OWS board)
O Leather Planner cover in A6, big enough so I can put a regular notebook/moleskine and a calendar in it (like the smaller Moleskine flex) (2cm/a little less than 1"). I love plain oiled leather in darkish to dark brown.
O Screen printing kit (I would so love to try this!)
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 a different one, or 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 earthenware sugar pot.)
O Binding or bias tape: patterned or solid, scrappy or single colour, from a fat quarter or a long strip from a sheet...
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!
O Moomins!


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 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. I don't have any really tiny ones, though... And 4/6/8" are great for Craftster projects.
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 Plain white silk scarves, shawls, foulards, handkerchieves etc. for me to paint
O Binding or bias tape (bought or handmade, plain or patterned)
O gift card/voucher/coupon for Sayila, Beadworks (UK), Beadaholique (UK), or Etsy.com
O To make things with for myself mostly: stuff with the 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 and that fluffy unicorn! Stephanie & Sportacus from Lazy Town
O For the 5yo: Mia&Me (Mia and Onchao, Lyria) and Elsa from Frozen, Stephanie & Sportacus from Lazy Town

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!

I claim Anne for an ironing pad for a tray table (and changing my previous claim to be something on Anne's wishlist)

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/
http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-knitcrochet/

Anything inspired by something on my blue and white board is fair game too:
http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/blue-white/  

or really any board... I love pinterest surprises.

A mugrug, placemat, simple purse, tote bag, wall art, zippered pouch, stenciled t-shirt, decoupaged box, tea caddy, inspired by any of the following: I do love blue, insanely love blue, but don't limit yourself

   - Uncle Iroh (love the man! Love his philosophy, love his love of tea, love him)
        - Waves crashing/Ocean

Favorite words/quotes - Ideal for stamping/stenciling on Jewelry, keychains, t-shirts, wall art or for embroidering/appliqueing/papercrafting onto sketchbooks/journals, bookmarks,
   - Always
   - Lies do not become us
   - Be the change (love so much it is now tattooed on my body)
   - Trust your story
   - Put one word after another until it is done
   - Inhale, Exhale, Repeat

   - You can turn a phrase in to a weapon or a drug
   - As you wish
   - Inconceivable
   - Gorram
   - Serenity
   - Shiny
   

Kitchen stuff - My kitchen is grey, white and indigo. I am not opposed to other colors, but I really love blue. cuteness like dinosaurs, cupcakes, lobsters, would be good or good with more traditional.
   - Trivet
   - Hot Pad - any kind would do, but I would really like one made in a coiled bowl style, but flat
   - Oven mitts  
   - Reusable swiffer covers
   - fabric, crochet or knit bowls, baskets, bins
   - Simple indigo placemats or napkins with subtle accents, like maybe a tiny smidge of embroidery, or a shell painted, stamped, appliqued in a corner, or maybe even a little bleach stenciling on it

~Tiny artwork - Embroidery, drawings, paintings - inchie, twinchie, rinchie sort of sizes. I'm sure it doesn't need to be said, but would prefer quality over quantity. One is more than enough if made with love and care

I claim KittyKill for etsy patterns

2 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/
http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-knitcrochet/  
http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-embroidered-bits/
https://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-sewn-bags-containters-pouc/

Anything inspired by something on my blue and white board is fair game too:
http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/blue-white/  

or really any board... I love pinterest surprises.

A mugrug, placemat, simple purse, tote bag, wall art, zippered pouch, stenciled t-shirt, decoupaged box, tea caddy, inspired by any of the following: I do love blue, insanely love blue, but don't limit yourself
   - Firefly - Jayne is my favorite, as well as anything with just Serenity

   - Stitch, Toothless or Baymax (really love mash-ups)

   - Hobbits, the One Ring or relating to the Tree of Gondor
   - Princess Bride
   - Unseen University
   - Diet Mountain Dew
   - tea - I have a whole board of tea inspiration (https://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/tea/)
   - Uncle Iroh (love the man! Love his philosophy, love his love of tea, love him)
        - Waves crashing/Ocean

Favorite words/quotes - Ideal for stamping/stenciling on Jewelry, keychains, t-shirts, wall art or for embroidering/appliqueing/papercrafting onto sketchbooks/journals, bookmarks,
   - Always
   - Lies do not become us
   - Be the change (love so much it is now tattooed on my body)
   - Trust your story
   - Put one word after another until it is done
   - Inhale, Exhale, Repeat
   - Write drunk, edit sober
   - You can turn a phrase in to a weapon or a drug
   - As you wish
   - Inconceivable
   - Gorram
   - Serenity
   - Shiny
   

Kitchen stuff - My kitchen is grey, white and indigo. I am not opposed to other colors, but I really love blue. cuteness like dinosaurs, cupcakes, lobsters, would be good or good with more traditional.
   - Trivet
   - Hot Pad - any kind would do, but I would really like one made in a coiled bowl style, but flat
   - Oven mitts  
   - Reusable swiffer covers
   - fabric, crochet or knit bowls, baskets, bins
   - Simple indigo placemats or napkins with subtle accents, like maybe a tiny smidge of embroidery, or a shell painted, stamped, appliqued in a corner, or maybe even a little bleach stenciling on it

~Tiny artwork - Embroidery, drawings, paintings - inchie, twinchie, rinchie sort of sizes. I'm sure it doesn't need to be said, but would prefer quality over quantity. One is more than enough if made with love and care

Claiming Averia for at least one finished UFO from my Avie-stash! (due out May 26)

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! I like plain fabrics, or (stylized) patterns like leaves and blossoms; polka dot... Repurposed and/or used is always fine. I 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 (don't like anything too close to the throat). And I love 3/4 sleeves (or long), but tees 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 or grey is perfect, as are any of my favourite colours.
Stencilled/drawn/painted/appliqued/embroidered etc. (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 that I put on shirts myself, they work great!
Themes: T-Shirts
Some specific ideas:
O Rickroll shirt... Or can just be Rick Astley, without the rolling... Wink
O XKCD t-shirts (baby, natural parenting, grownups, counter-clockwise)
O 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 anything really (Vimes & Sybil, Vetinari, Angua, UU, Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, Tiffany Aching, Death)

Sewn
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 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 I won't grab his correct things...

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 or cowl with a leaves overlay like this! knit leaves
O Spiral heel socks
O Any socks really, cable, plain, self-striping, knit or or crochet...
O 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 I want 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 from 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, wallet 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 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, aqua gym, gymnastic-y, birthdays, dates, movies, etc. - also works well for greeting cards (a candle, a cake or cupcake...)!  (various on my OWS board)
O Leather Planner cover in A6, big enough so I can put a regular notebook/moleskine and a calendar in it (like the smaller Moleskine flex) (2cm/a little less than 1"). I love plain oiled leather in darkish to dark brown.
O Screen printing kit (I would so love to try this!)
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 a different one, or 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 earthenware sugar pot.)
O Binding or bias tape: patterned or solid, scrappy or single colour, from a fat quarter or a long strip from a sheet...
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!
O Moomins!


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 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. I don't have any really tiny ones, though... And 4/6/8" are great for Craftster projects.
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 Plain white silk scarves, shawls, foulards, handkerchieves etc. for me to paint
O Binding or bias tape (bought or handmade, plain or patterned)
O gift card/voucher/coupon for Sayila, Beadworks (UK), Beadaholique (UK), or Etsy.com
O To make things with for myself mostly: stuff with the 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 and that fluffy unicorn! Stephanie & Sportacus from Lazy Town
O For the 5yo: Mia&Me (Mia and Onchao, Lyria) and Elsa from Frozen, Stephanie & Sportacus from Lazy Town

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!

I claim anna.wahnsinn for frixion highlighters and stamps!  (due out May 30th)

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. 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!). 

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

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. Women's XL

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:
Stamps/stencils/ink pads (especially good background patterns)
Embossing powder
Any kind of ink spray
Washi tape
Paint pens - the finer, the better
Tim Holtz Distress Stains

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 - dont have to be current

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 from my pinterest wish list

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

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!  

WISH LIST:
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 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

SUPPLIES
1. Wire for wire wrapping! Any metal any gauge! No rainbow colors though, just metal colors. Brass is a fave.
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
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?
