Ongoing Wish Swap Round 145 January 2018

Click here for the Gallery/Discussion for round 145


Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rscowtown
Sign-up date range: 1/1/2018---1/31/2018
Claim date range 1/1/2018---1/31/2018 (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.

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

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 January 2018 Round 145 of the OWS!

Happy New Year everyone! Claiming edelC for a chainmaille bracelet (or necklace if practice not only makes perfect but also faster!)! (due out January 15)

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 (6) and Hanna (4). I don't like cigarette/cigar smoke, but have no severe allergies to speak of (just some artificial scents, 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 sometimes pink for accents with black, cream, taupe or brown. Always, always, always black will be a perfect choice! I like plain fabrics, or (stylized) patterns like leaves and blossoms; irregular polka dots... 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 and viscose. Women's plus size 26-30 or 3x-5x. As for shirt colour, black or heather grey would be perfect, as well as any of my favourite colours.
I'd love to receive stencilled/drawn/painted/appliqued/embroidered etc. shirts, because printable iron-ons tend to get destroyed in our washing machine. I've also received some awesome vinyl iron-ons that I put on shirts myself, they work great, too!
Themes: T-Shirts
Some specific wishes:
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, Death, Vimes & Sybil, Vetinari, Angua, UU, Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, Tiffany Aching, Death)

Sewn
O Medium sized Pleated Tote, a very dark deep purple 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.

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? or purple?)
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 (in a dark 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.
O Mittens or wristwarmers!

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 or tiny stars 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 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 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 A seam ripper
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, 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.
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 Anything with the original Care Bears, Forever Friends (the teddy bears!), Classic Pooh (the E.H. Shepard drawings), Barbapapas, Moomins
O For the 4yo: Fireman Sam, Minions (also Agnes & that fluffy unicorn), Peppa Pig, Anna & Olaf from Frozen, Stephanie & Sportacus from Lazy Town
O For the 6yo: Mia&Me (Mia and Onchao, Lyria) and Elsa from Frozen, Stephanie & Sportacus from Lazy Town, My Little Pony and those tiny Filly ones.
O Current big project: 6yo greatest wish is a Tara costume (from Epic) so I need some stiffish green fabric for the top and an idea what to make the white petals for the skirt from. And she'd love to have that little bud, too...

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!

You cannot give me too much work; to accumulate work has almost become a passion with me: my study is so full of it now, that there is hardly an inch of room for any more. I shall have to throw out a wing soon. (J.K.Jerome)

Claiming rscowtown for snagless stitch markers & knitting needles (due out January 17)

2/0/0
This is my second claim this round.

Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband Uwe and two little ones: Lea (6) and Hanna (4). I don't like cigarette/cigar smoke, but have no severe allergies to speak of (just some artificial scents, 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 sometimes pink for accents with black, cream, taupe or brown. Always, always, always black will be a perfect choice! I like plain fabrics, or (stylized) patterns like leaves and blossoms; irregular polka dots... 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 and viscose. Women's plus size 26-30 or 3x-5x. As for shirt colour, black or heather grey would be perfect, as well as any of my favourite colours.
I'd love to receive stencilled/drawn/painted/appliqued/embroidered etc. shirts, because printable iron-ons tend to get destroyed in our washing machine. I've also received some awesome vinyl iron-ons that I put on shirts myself, they work great, too!
Themes: T-Shirts
Some specific wishes:
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, Death, Vimes & Sybil, Vetinari, Angua, UU, Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, Tiffany Aching, Death)

Sewn
O Medium sized Pleated Tote, a very dark deep purple 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.

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? or purple?)
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... (Thank you Laurel for my first pair of Craftster socks!)
O A big, beautiful purple beanie (in a dark 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.
O Mittens or wristwarmers!

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 or tiny stars 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 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 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 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, 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.
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 Anything with the original Care Bears, Forever Friends (the teddy bears!), Classic Pooh (the E.H. Shepard drawings), Barbapapas, Moomins
O For the 4yo: Fireman Sam, Minions (also Agnes & that fluffy unicorn), Peppa Pig, Anna & Olaf from Frozen, Stephanie & Sportacus from Lazy Town
O For the 6yo: Mia&Me (Mia and Onchao, Lyria) and Elsa from Frozen, Stephanie & Sportacus from Lazy Town, My Little Pony and those tiny Filly ones.
O Current big project: 6yo greatest wish is a Tara costume (from Epic) so I need some stiffish green fabric for the top and an idea what to make the white petals for the skirt from. And she'd love to have that little bud, too...

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!

Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband Uwe and two little ones: Lea (6) and Hanna (4). I don't like cigarette/cigar smoke, but have no severe allergies to speak of (just some artificial scents, 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 sometimes pink for accents with black, cream, taupe or brown. Always, always, always black will be a perfect choice! I like plain fabrics, or (stylized) patterns like leaves and blossoms; irregular polka dots... 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!

I claim Grab a Coffee for some LOTR art

1/0/0

Hi! My name is Olivia, and I live in California with my DH, two sons, and a cat.   I love to crochet, draw, paint, garden, read, and hike. I love Nature, plants, animals, books, and art.  I tend to like things a little bit creepy, but not quite to the point of disturbing. Bats and spiders Yes! Blood and guts No!

I collect realistic toads because they are my kindred spirits, living part of their life on land and part of it in water. Water and Earth are my elements. Rainbow moonstone, golden rutilated quartz, and jade are my stones.  Brass is my favorite metal, but I love all the metals and love mixing them.

For color I prefer Earthy, and jewel tones.  I wear mostly black paired with whatever are my current faves. (Current faves are forest green and mustard, but probably not together - I also rotate burgundy, dark teal, turquoise, navy, and eggplant as faves.) I dislike pastels, neons or bright primary tones.  I never wear white, but I use it and ivory in my home rather often.  

Thanks in advance for any claims!

(not so much holiday related) - I have a tutorial for a super simple one in my Pinterest wishlist as well as some examples of some really dope fancy ones.  The ones I have are just two pieces of fabric sewn together with thin batting in between, and I love them.  -I prefer sets of four, but can be split up into separate claims
