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) We are asking that everyone post once a week in the discussion/gallery board--so that we know you're still here with us.  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).

4) Feedback will be given once all of your packages have been received.

5) Please include craft, supplies and misc items on your list-just in case the swap slows down. The more on the list, the more the swap will keep going.

6) For claims: 1st time swapper 1 claim (until package is in transit with proof). Regular Swapper 2 claims (until package is in transit with proof)Friend of Craftster 3 claims (until package is in transit with proof)

If you want to participate, information to send to: kittykill

I.E.  Sally ----> Suzy for a pink pony saddle due out Jan 1

Please pay close attention to your partners hope 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  10 medium crafted items AND 10 supply items ready before making your swap claim (the more you have, the better your chance of getting claimed quickly).  Add misc items such as tea, candy....

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.

Ongoing Wish Claim Limit:
Friend of Craftster: Three
First time swapper: One
Everyone Else: Two

If you are a friend of craftster you can have 3 ongoing claims open at a time and no more than 6 total claims open (open meaning in transit as well as not yet received) 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 ongoing and 4 claims total between ongoing 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 ongoing. 2/1/0, 2/2/0, 3/1/1

Please keep in mind that DC#'s are required for all US to US claims 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 kittykill.

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)

I claim kittykill for jewelry from her Pinterest list (due out January 18)

This is my first claim this round.
1/0/0
kittykill for jewelry (due out January 18)

Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband and two daughters.

My favourite colours are black (esp. for wearables), then dark teal, deep plum purple (love soft and cooler shades), and for accents cream, taupe, or pink. Black will always be the perfect choice! I like plain fabrics, or (stylized) patterns like leaves and blossoms; irregular polka dots... I prefer cotton or other natural fibers over acrylics. Repurposed and/or used is always fine. Also I'm happy to receive mixed or supply only-claims!

Seems I have a bit of a collecting problem online too, so here are a few Pinterest board recommendations so you don't have to wade all of them: my Craftster Pinterest wishlist. Other good boards: Jewelry or T-shirts I love the shirts I've received so far and am wearing them constantly. But I still want more!

I love miniatures! So if there is something you want to make but shipping would not work, maybe it would work out on a small to tiny scale? Think inchies, twinchies, rinchies, ATC, OTT. art board Also I have a doll house, and a doll house for that

Embellished / Decorated Shirts
I love a round, wide neckline and 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. I'd love stencilled/drawn/painted/appliqued/embroidered etc. shirts (printable iron-ons tend to get destroyed in our washing machine). I've also received some awesome vinyl iron-ons that I did put on my own shirts, they work great, too! Black, grey and white are good, so would be a dark plum or greenish teal. Some specific wishes:
O Labyrinth! Jareth, or a quotation, or... preferably in black and white (or a teeny bit glittery?)
O Rickroll shirt... Or can just be Rick Astley, without the rolling... Wink
O XKCD t-shirts (esp. grownups, counter-clockwise, baby, natural parenting)
O Calvin & Hobbes (esp. selective reality, last minute panic)
O Discworld! Can be just a quotation, or anything really (Vimes, Death, Vimes & Sybil, Vetinari, Angua, UU, Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, Tiffany Aching, Death, Great A'Tuin,...)
O Books!

Sewn
O Purple infinity scarf. Examples https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279496051367/ or https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279496047326/ from plain jersey
O Medium sized Pleated Tote, a very dark deep purple would be a favourite, or emerald/teal, or black is always good!
O Tote/purse (with a zipper closure if possible) like one of these: Buttercup Bag; One Hour Bag
O Something printed/stamped/embroidered with (tiny?) stars on it: A tea wallet, a notebook, a small zippered purse or tampon wallet, pouch, wallet, a earbud case, pendant, grocery tote, anything! or Dandelions! If you have a fabric with a pattern like that thats perfect, too!


Knit or crochet
O Plain deep plum/purple loop or cowl (can be a lot shorter and from the simplest pattern; but that shade of purple is gorgeous!) https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279507160525/
O Plain deep plum/purple hat https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279498941677/ (or even better like the colour of the loop!)
O Plain deep plum/purple mittens, fingerless gloves or wristwarmers
O or others... https://www.pinterest.de/pin/3518505933393761/
O An (otherwise fast and easy) knit hat or cowl with a leaves overlay like this! knit leaves
O Balaclava hat or something with earflaps!
O Entrelac socks https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279507162744/
O Spiral heel socks https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279493860489/
O Love socks https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279495718918/
O Any socks really, cable, plain, self-striping, knit or or crochet... I wear socks in bed, so am not very rough on them https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279500149176/

Jewelry
O Anything Labyrinth (esp. Jareth!) 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 I do have the rhinestones, but cant drill stone
O Glow-in-the-Dark Tree of Life Pendant
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!

Other
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 Loom knitting HOW TO I do have looms, circles and straight ones, but don't know how to knit on them. Especially how to get knit things off the loom!
O Medium to tiny hooplas/wall art (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 Greeting Cards stars always welcome! Can be themed (Christmas, Thank You, Birthdays for example) or just "plain" https://www.pinterest.de/annawahnsinn/karten-cards/
O This Pottery Yarn Bowl is my absolute favourite (the colour, the little stars!), but I'd also 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 (I can always put a stone in as a weight).
O Anything Labyrinth for me... crochet, knit, Fimo, sewn, embroidered, whatever, useful or just pretty...
O Calvin & Hobbes - again anything "pretty" and/or useful

Claiming Anne for a fabric covered measuring tape and a couple small screens for screen printing

This is my first claim this round.
1/0/0
Anne for covered measuring tape and screen printing screens (due out January 18)

My old list is out the window, starting over fresh.

About me - I live in Maryland. I am a bit of a math geek, I spend all day at a computer programming pension systems and I like it. I love math humor, grammar humor and really bad puns. I have 3 kids (girls who are 20 and 18 and a son who is 16) 1 grandbaby who is 1, and a hubby. I love embroidering and sewing. I have been dabbling in quilting the last couple years and it really appeals to the math geek in me. The color blue holds a place of love in my heart above all else. seriously, it borders on being an obsession with me. I may have to get help. blue and white, blue and blue, blue and grey, blue and black...

We have allergens (cat, rabbit, turtle) but no allergies (I'm allergic to a lot of metals, especially gold, but not a big deal), I have my own crafting space with no animals allowed, but fur gets everywhere (please put allergies prominently in your list so if it involves cats or rabbits I know not to claim for crafted items)

CRAFTED ITEMS: Anything off my Please make this for me boards is fair game. I love pinterest surprises. I would prefer your own twist on something rather than an exact copy. https://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/

I claim Averia for a tea cozy.

1/0/0
Averia for tea cozy (due January 19th)

Hello, Im Kirsten, I live in Aotearoa / New Zealand, in the beautiful Bay of Islands.

I love art and I like to do drawing, painting and printmaking, as well as sewing, knitting and embroidery. My job can be quite intense so I like to balance it with more creative time.

Colours: my favourites are blue/green/teal/aqua, natural tones, greys, muted colours, or black and white. I like most colours, but I'm not so fond of multicoloured, rainbow-ish brights, or pastels. My house is mostly grey and white, with red, blue and green accents in different places.
Metals: silver, copper or gunmetal.
Fabrics: Natural linen, monochromatic prints rather than very multi-coloured. Some styles I particularly like are mid-century modern, Scandinavian, Japanese (but not kawaii). I really like the combination of natural linen and bright fabrics.

I dont have any allergies. I prefer natural fibres, but not exclusively.

I tend to like simple and arty things. My Pinterest boards will give you a good idea of the sorts of things I like. Id rather have things that are inspired by than exact copies its great if you can put your own creative spin on what you make!  I have many wonderful things made by Craftster buddies, and I love to use them every day. my pinterest

Big wishes in bold (if that's helpful), but anything on the list (or inspired by my pinterest craftster wishlist) is welcome. I love surprises too. Thank you!!


CRAFTS

SEWN
* panda cushion cover, something like this. Just the cover, no need to stuff it (easier to mail).
* a cushion cover that you think Id like in any combination of greys, black, white, natural and/or red. Unstuffed, any shape or size.
* placemats and/or table napkins machine washable please. Any shade of grey, or black and white, or natural, or green. Or something else you think Id like. I have some great Craftster-made placemats, but its good to have a few more for when they are in the wash. And washable table napkins would be very welcome.
* a pockety project bag I always have several projects on the go, different styles and sizes always welcome
* organiser things (e.g. project holder, thing for storing small supplies and bits) any size. Some ideas on pinterest, but other styles are good too.
* fabric buckets/boxes any size, big or small. Short handles are useful, but not essential.
* paint brush/art tools roll, or folder/holder, or jar/can style up to you!
* microwave bowl holder like this. Kitchen is grey and white with bits of red, but this blue/natural combo is nice too, or whatever fabrics you have on hand.
* kitty thread catcher like this doesn't have to be red gingham (though I do like the red gingham), another nice fabric with the natural/linen would be great. Could be a black and white panda instead of a kitty?
* clutch purse/wristlet - smallish but big enough for wallet, keys, phone, lipstick etc.  Style and colours up to you!


YARN/FELT RELATED
* if youre interested in knitting something, these are some things I want in my ravelry faves (I dont necessarily want all the other things in my ravelry faves though) ravelry wants there are some smaller things like hats and mitts in there, and a couple of crochet things too (crochet things).
I like solid colours rather than variegated yarn. I live in a much warmer climate now, so light to medium weight is better please.


PAPER RELATED
* handmade sketchbook or notebook (I do both art and creative writing, so lined and unlined are both welcome)
* hand-carved stamps in one of my themes


OTHER CRAFTS
* airbrushed/stamped/printed art on fabric - on a plain piece of fabric for me to make something with e.g. retro sci-fi, robot army, trees/leaves
* handmade ceramic item, esp. in celadon green (but any colours are good) coffee mug, little bowl, something useful
* painted/printed T-shirt for me, needs to be V-neck, XL, for hubby, standard mens L
* if youre into polyclay, a chameleon brooch/pin. Or a retro raygun.


THEMES ANY CRAFT
* pandas
* chameleons
* frogs
* art and artists
* quotes and inspiration about creative writing, or art
* retro UFO, robot or raygun
* a Star Trek or Doctor Who thingy, my faves are Spock, tardis and daleks.
* things to put other things in box, organiser, project holder, stationery folder etc. always welcome
* something inspired by Morrisey (for hubby)
* both hubby and I like Final Fantasy, so chocobos, moogles, tonberrys, or cactuars, especially for him

* or a pinterest-inspired surprise


CRAFT SUPPLIES
* nice cotton or linen fat quarters
* nice paper - e.g handmade, japanese, printmaking, watercolour, textured, any colour or weight - it's for art and printmaking, so plain rather than patterned is best.
* Noro yarn
* small art supplies items:-
     - pencils, markers and pens (Prismacolor/Derwent/Caran D'Ache for example, or similar artist grade things think quality rather than quantity, just a few nice things would be fab! and cheap to mail). Art supplies can be very expensive here.
     - Sakura Pigma Micron pens
     - inkpads, little stencils, stamps, etc.
* thick stampcarving material
* 100% wool felt (I have stacks of ordinary synthetic felt already though) in greys, blues, greens, purples, red
* plain linen or wool fabric (natural, grey, green, blue)
* freezer paper


EXTRAS
* I love vintage/interesting buttons, ribbons, embroidery bits, etc.
* no candy (its too expensive to mail, and I really don't need it!)


NB. New Zealand has tough biosecurity at the border. This is very unlikely to apply to this swap, but just in case ... Please dont send natural materials (feathers, leaves, wood, seeds e.g. lavender, etc.) Everything on my list is absolutely fine to send, but PM me if youre unsure about something. Thanks  Smiley

I claim jemimah for something from her list, due to send January 19.

1/0/0
  
Hello everyone!  I'm Jeanne from midwest USA.  I'm married 35 years to a wonderful man and we have 2 teenaged sons at home (older kids escaped the nest).  Our home is smoke free (allergies plus son has asthma/PH) but we do have a short haired dog that we rescued from the pound.  I enjoy reading, refinishing or  repurposing furniture, and machine sewing at a basic level.  Thanks to arthritis, my hands don't cooperate when it comes to hand sewing or precise skills.  Quilters, knitters/crocheters, embroiderers, and jewelry makers are my heroes- anyone who does intricate detailing.  I like Masterpiece Theater, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Divergent, Game of Thrones, AHS, old movies, art history, and retro themes up through 1950s.  Vintage sewing machines and teacups make me smile.

*** Revised list  ***
Likes --
Colors:  Favs are Purples, greens, blues.  I like most of the color wheel except for orange or bright red as a main color (accent is fine).
Flowers:  Peonies, wisteria, hydrangea, plumeria, lilacs, Sweet Woodruff, Ladyslippers, Sweet Peas, Snapdragons
Animals:  Puma/mountain lion (my favorite!), giraffe, deer; the animated Max from the cartoon version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas; Pussyfoot (the kitten that charmed the bulldog).  Dragonflies, cute frogs, crane, eagle, peregrine falcon, bluebird, cardinal, chickadee
Fragrance:  Freshly cut clover, bamboo, lettuce, cinnamon, sage, thyme, peony, lilac, plumeria, wisteria, ylang ylang, orange blossom, teaberry, grapefruit, citrus, pear, mango
Vintage hardware, doorknobs, keyholes, drawer pulls, keys, clock winders, buttons.
Plaids, paisley, florals, toile, fleur de lis
Medieval, Steampunk, and goth (just a touch; love the inspirations but not the gloom part)
Lighthouse, old schoolhouse, country church, cabin, front porch/doorway
Coffee cup people - scaled down version of Coffee Pot People; characters made from cups, etc.  Turn something into a character and give it personality!  Examples for inspiration:  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/181551428699235796/   http://coffee-pot-people.blogspot.com/
Minions!!  They are the cutest bad guys on the planet lol
HURRAW lip balms!!

Dislikes --
Domo, Mickey Mouse; vulgar/adult; bathroom humor.  I'm allergic to peppermint, almonds, tobacco smoke.  Scents labeled "cotton" or "linen."  The psychedelic 1960s.

CRAFTY WISH LIST

-- Neckwarmers!  Felted, knitted, crocheted, button, velcro, I love them all.  
-- Ear warmers/headbands.  Sometimes I even sleep with ear and neck warmers on since we do have rough winters.
-- Fingerless gloves or leg warmers
-- A hoopla with any of these themes:  bird, birdhouse, peonies, fleur de lis, giraffe, minions, dragonflies
-- A brooch with steampunk theme
-- Placemats
-- Table runner with sewing paraphernalia theme, denim theme, or with fleur de lis at each end.  I do love table runners.  
-- Mug rugs - I love the ones made for me but could use more for company.  
-- Artwork with a vintage theme - antiques, fashions, yellowed sheet music, old school house, wooden doorways - love vintage things up through 1950s.
-- Pottery/clay cup or painted mug
-- Wood or metal sign with our house numbers for outside
-- Door wreath or sign
-- Upcycled old keys or clock winder: charms, keyfob, necklace, windchime, brooch, magnets
-- Birdhouse - we have bluebirds and cardinals in our yard
-- Decorated clothespins with magnets on the back
-- Books with trivia, inspirational quotes, or interesting artwork
-- Wreck this journal made with your personal touches
-- Something with one of these quotes on it (FQ, hoopla, engraving, etching, wood carving, wall art, embroidery, cards/stationery set, mug, wristlet, zipper pouch, tee shirt):
       I'm just mad for tartan
       Balenciaga!
       I sew things.  That's what I do.  
       Always
       It isnt what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.
       Feel the Thunder!  (school band motto, colors are deep Imperial purple and gold)

-- Something recycled/upcycled that you would love to make-   CD case into a photo frame for my desk?  Broken china into a trivet?  Door knob or drawer pulls into a coat rack?  Share your creativity Smiley
-- Gift card for Jo-Ann Fabric, Hobby Lobby, or Michael's craft store
-- Friend or Fanatic Friend of Craftster membership
Some ideas:  https://www.pinterest.com/jsol161/%2B%2B-craftster-wish-list-%2B%2B/


-- SUPPLIES --

D rings -- various sizes are always useful
Overalls buckles - the metal clasp set that hooks the overall bib strap to the chest piece  (like these  http://www.joann.com/search?q=overall%20buckle)
Side release/Parachute buckles 1" wide or smaller - these are the buckles on shopping cart seat belts that squeeze from the sides
1" or 3/4" wide webbing - black, navy, dark purple, or cream are used the most but any color is useful.
Threads - all colors, cotton preferred please   **Speaking of threads, I have some spools of embroidery thread that need a good home.  There are variegated, solids, various contents - nylon, rayon, polyester, some unknown content.  Also a few spools that might be for a serger ***
Non-roll elastic - any width
Interfacing - the sew in kind please
Fabric -- fat quarters or half yards are always useful (or men's dress shirts with buttons all the way down the front- great material source plus the button holes are already there and I don't have to sew on the buttons).  I make tote bags for walkers and wheelchairs, to donate to nursing home residents.  Colorful prints are stimulating.  Michael Miller, Kaufman, RJR, Alexander Henry, and Timeless Treasures are particular favorites but any fabric would be appreciated.
Embroidery scissors - to take with me wherever I haul my project tote, so my larger scissors can stay at home.  Kidlets' school thinks that large scissors are weapons. Thank you, kittykill!
Shoelaces -- any colors; longer is better but all are useful
Cellophane bags for wrapping baskets (30x40 inches or larger please, can't find big ones around here)
Card stock or set of plain cards to embellish

MEDIA

-- Previously read mystery magazines such as Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, The Strand, Alfred Hitchcock Magazine; anything with a collection of short stories that you might have laying around
-- A PICKLE FOR A NICKEL, by Lilian Moore (one of my all time fav books from childhood; used is fine for this or any book)
-- OUTLANDER novels.  I'm the only one on the planet who hasn't read this series lol
-- SPENCER'S MOUNTAIN DVD or book by Earl Hamner Jr.  (This is the story on which the tv show, "The Waltons," was based.  Used is fine.)
-- Anything by Edward Gorey.  I'm intrigued by the glimpses that I've seen/heard about his work.
-- The New Biographical Dictionary of Film: Sixth Edition.  I love old movies and film trivia!

Anything from Amazon Wish List:  
  https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/W1PI4SJEV4EA/ref=cm_wl_list_o_1?

My Pinterest:  https://www.pinterest.com/jsol161/
          

-- Your experiences and skills might think of something else that isn't listed, but no doubt would be incredibly useful and deeply appreciated.  I prefer things with your own touch instead of duplicates of the ideas above.

Thank you for considering me!

I claim kittykill for something inspired by the other one (due out January 20)

This is my second claim this round.
2/0/0
kittykill for jewelry (due out January 18)
kittykill for something inspired by the other one (due out January 20)


Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband and two daughters.

My favourite colours are black (esp. for wearables), then dark teal, deep plum purple (love soft and cooler shades), and for accents cream, taupe, or pink. Black will always be the perfect choice! I like plain fabrics, or (stylized) patterns like leaves and blossoms; irregular polka dots... I prefer cotton or other natural fibers over acrylics. Repurposed and/or used is always fine. Also I'm happy to receive mixed or supply only-claims!

Seems I have a bit of a collecting problem online too, so here are a few Pinterest board recommendations so you don't have to wade all of them: my Craftster Pinterest wishlist. Other good boards: Jewelry or T-shirts I love the shirts I've received so far and am wearing them constantly. But I still want more!

I love miniatures! So if there is something you want to make but shipping would not work, maybe it would work out on a small to tiny scale? Think inchies, twinchies, rinchies, ATC, OTT. art board Also I have a doll house, and a doll house for that

Embellished / Decorated Shirts
I love a round, wide neckline and 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. I'd love stencilled/drawn/painted/appliqued/embroidered etc. shirts (printable iron-ons tend to get destroyed in our washing machine). I've also received some awesome vinyl iron-ons that I did put on my own shirts, they work great, too! Black, grey and white are good, so would be a dark plum or greenish teal. Some specific wishes:
O Labyrinth! Jareth, or a quotation, or... preferably in black and white (or a teeny bit glittery?)
O Rickroll shirt... Or can just be Rick Astley, without the rolling... Wink
O XKCD t-shirts (esp. grownups, counter-clockwise, baby, natural parenting)
O Calvin & Hobbes (esp. selective reality, last minute panic)
O Discworld! Can be just a quotation, or anything really (Vimes, Death, Vimes & Sybil, Vetinari, Angua, UU, Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, Tiffany Aching, Death, Great A'Tuin,...)
O Books!

Sewn

O Medium sized Pleated Tote, a very dark deep purple would be a favourite, or emerald/teal, or black is always good!
O Tote/purse (with a zipper closure if possible) like one of these: Buttercup Bag; One Hour Bag
O Something printed/stamped/embroidered with (tiny?) stars on it: A tea wallet, a notebook, a small zippered purse or tampon wallet, pouch, wallet, a earbud case, pendant, grocery tote, anything! or Dandelions! If you have a fabric with a pattern like that thats perfect, too!


Knit or crochet
O Plain deep plum/purple loop or cowl (can be a lot shorter and from the simplest pattern; but that shade of purple is gorgeous!) https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279507160525/
O Plain deep plum/purple hat https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279498941677/ (or even better like the colour of the loop!)
O Plain deep plum/purple mittens, fingerless gloves or wristwarmers

O Any socks really, cable, plain, self-striping, knit or or crochet... I wear socks in bed, so am not very rough on them https://www.pinterest.de/pin/171981279500149176/

Jewelry
O Anything Labyrinth (esp. Jareth!) 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 I do have the rhinestones, but cant drill stone
O Glow-in-the-Dark Tree of Life Pendant
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!

Other
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 Gelli printing I'd love to try that!
O Loom knitting HOW TO I do have looms, circles and straight ones, but don't know how to knit on them. Especially how to get knit things off the loom!
O Medium to tiny hooplas/wall art (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 Greeting Cards stars always welcome! Can be themed (Christmas, Thank You, Birthdays for example) or just "plain" https://www.pinterest.de/annawahnsinn/karten-cards/
O This Pottery Yarn Bowl is my absolute favourite (the colour, the little stars!), but I'd also 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 (I can always put a stone in as a weight).
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 'Fabric covered' Measuring tape pretty, fun, penguin, sheep, any of my fandoms

O Punches: 1 inch square, circle, star, 2 inch square, star, circle; stars from tiny to huge, snowflake 1" or larger
O Fabric paint or pens (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, others go into the oven.

I claim anna.wahnsinn for a purse/tote (due Jan 22)

1 claim / 0 shipped / 0 received

I'm Jessica. I live in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada with my husband and our brother-and-sister black cats, Kofi and Keemun.

Favourite colours: black, teal, turquoise, eggplant purple, hot pink
Favourite themes: bats, skulls, maps/globes, pigeons, books, black cats, masquerade masks, the moon, stars, lightning bolts, Ouija boards & planchettes, tea, beer, history overall (favourite eras: Regency England, 1920s)

Crafted Items

- Hamilton, Ontario, Canada themed embroidery hoop (you might think you cant do one in a city you live in, but Ive already received 2 from other swappers!)
- A black on white embroidered hoop for my gallery wall (constellations? something else?); inspiration: https://www.pinterest.ca/psyche13/crafts-hooplas-id-like-to-own/
- Art I can tape up on my glass wall at work (must be work-appropriate so nothing too creepy, sexy, or focused on a specific face - in other words, most of my Pinterest art board is out [but maybe something like mountains/landscapes, pigeons, maps... etc])
- Art I CANT put up at work, inspired by my Pinterest Art board, and Ill find somewhere to put it - https://www.pinterest.ca/psyche13/art/ - lady-focused, lowbrow, gritty, creepy, etc.
- Print/stamp/dye/etc some fabric for me
- Something Lord of the Rings and/or The Hobbit themed to sit on my fantasy book shelf - I already have a hobbit hole. Some inspiration here: https://www.pinterest.ca/psyche13/themes-fandomania/
- Something Regency/Victorian romance themed to sit on my romance book shelf
- A surprise inspired by my extensive Pinterest! (Ignore the boards that start with Create though - those are my collections of tutorials, not stuff I necessarily like myself) https://www.pinterest.ca/psyche13/

Supplies & Such

- Holiday-themed vintage postcards (one of my collections)

- Buttons - vintage, big, cool
- Jewellery findings - chains, clasps, earring hooks, ring blanks, etc.
