Ongoing Wish Swap Round 142 October 2017

Click here for the Gallery/Discussion for round 142

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rscowtown
Sign-up date range: 10/1/2017---10/31/2017
Claim date range 10/1/2017---10/31/2017 (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 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.

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
Name of swap: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 142 {October 2017}
Craftster username:

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 first 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. Tell me anything you want (I am the only person who sees this Smiley

Any questions?


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 October 2017 Round 142 of the OWS!

I am claiming Spikefan for some fabric

1 claim, 0 sent, 0 received

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, granddaughter, 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.

We have no allergies here (other than awful ragweed allergies... but can't see that as much of an issue in swap packages). We have been having a go at switching from a vegetarian diet to a vegan diet so probably better to stay away from foods unless they are vegan.

Please feel to claim me for anything on my Please make this for me boards on pinterest:

Anything inspired by something on my blue and white board is fair game too:

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

Favorite themes (love mashups!)
   - Firefly - Jayne is my favorite, as well as anything with just Serenity
   - Stitch, Toothless or Baymax (really love mash-ups)
   - Harry Potterish, favorite things are Dobby, SPEW, Neville, the word "Always"
   - 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)

BIG WISH: I am collecting fabrics for an eye spy ticker tape quilt. Would love a few squares/rectangles of fabric with a subject identifiable by a preschooler. anywhere in the 2"x2" to 4"x4" size. Please make sure there is at least .5" margin around the design.

Also Big Wish: I really love mugrugs & Coasters - need more for my new craftroom. Would love in any theme above or just blue or blue and white.

~ Wednesday & fridays are farmers market days - can always use more market bags - sewn, crocheted, whatever Smiley

~Tea caddy - painted? decoupaged? blue themes always loved or any of my favorite themes

~ tea containers, painted, decoupaged or whatever.

~ simple bags, purses or pouches - bonus points for a bit of embroidery to them. (if looking for inspiration: https://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-embroidered-bits/ and https://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-sewn-bags-containters-pouc/)

~ blue quilted hot pads

~ oven mitts - all I have are super huge ones, would love fingertip style. As with most everything, I would love blue, but also happy to get something in a fun print like cupcakes, veggies or lobsters (named Jimmie, and never eaten)

~ Microwave bowl holders

~ 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

~ Mismatched Coasters from any of the following literature/gaming/shows: Rick's Cafe, Prancing Pony, Green Dragon Inn, Founding Fathers,The Bronze, Dragonfly Inn, The Brick, McRory's, Leaky Cauldron, Three Broomsticks, The Pig and Whistle, Lion's Pride Inn, Hogs Head Inn,

~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
~Any sort of anything made from recycled Diet Mountain Dew cans, jewelry, bookmarks, wreath, box, anything
~Turtle cozies! My Tasha needs a cozy.
~The start of an altered journal
~zippered M&M's pouch

~ 1" hexies in blue - or blue and white, or just blue fabric cut for 1" hexies (2.5" squares)
~and just in case MissingWillow returns to this swap, or someone else takes up pottery, Pottery buttons with a blue black glaze or a japanese style tea cup or bowl made just for me

Favorite words/quotes - Ideal for stamping/stenciling on Jewelry, keychains, t-shirts, wall art or for embroidering/appliqueing/papercrafting onto sketchbooks/journals, bookmarks,

I claim Averia for some pinterest goodies. This is my first claim this round.

1 claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

My name is Edel and I live in ireland with my 22 year old daughter. I love all sorts of craft, I sew, bookbind, stencil, make jewellery. My daughter is musical theatre obsessed. In general I prefer fabrics that feel nice, soft cotton, fake fur and mostly prefer functional to purely decorative stuff.
Favourite colours, turquoise, teal, soft vintage green, black, red. Anycolour paired with black. I am not a fan of neons.
Themes flamingos, hearts, winged hearts, tattoo, goth, ravens and corvids (https://www.pinterest.ie/edelc/crows/) of all kinds, 

My wish list

Anything from my craft swap ideas board www.pinterest.com/edelc
A hood like this https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/131378514114631110/ with a stronger colour hood and a soft fake fur, or fleecy lining. I have a big head and lots of hair, so it needs to be a generous size.
