Hey, here is my 2006 wishlist swap thingers:

~~~pillows, large, small, size doesn't matter, just colorful!
~~~embroidered pillow cases
~~~a men's XL shirt with a guitar stenciled on it
~~~a men's XL shirt with something Grateful Dead related stenciled, embroidered, whatever on it
~~~handspun yarn.  it is like candy.  i want candy.
~~~handmade soap.  i love lavender; grapefruit; scents that are cleansing (eucalyptus)
~~~random yarn.  i love the stuff and i am crocheting a random afghan and need more random yarn (lots!)
~~~necklaces or bracelets.
~~~circular needle holder.
~~~mix cds.  i am always looking for something new to listen to.  i love jazz, blues, arcade fire, bright eyes, martha Wainwright (Sp?), ani difranco, you don't need to mix this stuff up but you can expand from this  Grinthanks!  some mix cds are heading my way.  i would love to have other music input so this still stands.  so excited!!!
~~~a small painting or piece of artwork. 
~~~a small needlepoint piece
~~~a panta (i never get around to making my own!!!)
~~~fingerless knitted/crocheted gloves for man's hands!
~~~a large roomy purse/bag for traveling.  i need something to stuff my goodies.  i fly a lot and i need something that can pack my needles, a magazine and my purse crap.
~~~a Grateful Dead bear stuffie
~~~a decoupage box for holding goodies  Yay!!!!
~~~fabric--like small prints or organic prints or Asian-themed prints---I am working on a quilt that has dragons; bamboo; lotus flowers and I am looking for fabric that goes with these things. 
~~~handmade note cards (thank you; thinking of you; plain)

I live in California but I am a midwestern in the fact I love the snow and cold (and originally from Iowa.).  I am 28.  I love skulls, stars, trees, snow, the way the skyline looks with no trees and a soft blanket snow, Newcastle beer, pigs, frogs, Jim Woodring, dark colors especially the jewel tones, and sparkly, shiny items.  I am at the point in my life were I feel like I am defined by my job not by life outside.  It kinda makes me want to craft more and more to balance out my extreme work life.  I love random, expressive crafts...

Yay! Time to post my list!

--I would love a cable knitted baseball/newsboy cap, in a neutral color so I could wear it often: camel, charcoal, black, brown, cream, etc.
--A mesh shopping bag, like in this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=52863.0
-Sushi TP cover-https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=30894.0 or a toilet seat cover, if that's possible.  I want to re-do my husbands bathroom in sushi theme, any help would be appreciated.
11. A panta!!! Any color Smiley Whoever chose this, rocks!  Now I can be part of the cool kids!
--Amiguri little animals, these are so stinking cute, I love them all!
--Little crocheted flowers, I would love a bunch to put wherever I please and to embellish things I make!
--I'm dreadful at keeping alive houseplants... so I'm wondering, if it's possible to knit or crochet a little potted plant?  Maybe a cactus?

I love fun, funky necklaces, some examples, I'm wearing my necklaces quite long lately:
-A resin charm for a necklace, with like a beetle inside or something like that
-One of those long necklaces with a bunch of charms on them, like something crocheted, etc.
-The zimmerman bead necklaces
-Dangly pretty earrings

--I love long, tunic style t-shirts and tanks.  I would love a stencilled or iron-on one with either something nature-like--trees or birds, owls, deers. Women's L
--Same as above, but with a hooded sweatshirt, or zip up hoodie.
--T-shirt, tank, hoodie with something Las Vegas themed or gambling theme on it, or with either "I'm so LV" or "From the 702" on it.  Something like that.

-- A Vegas themed craft--stationary? coasters? jewelry? Anything you please!
--I would love anything super cute for my daughter.  She just turned one!  You can always contact me if you need more info on her size, but generally 18 month size right now.
--Recipes-As a New Year's Resolution I am going to eat healthier!  I would love an assortment of your favorite health conscious or "diet" recipes.
--Home made beauty products-My skin gets very dry here in the desert, and everything I buy doesn't seem to work.  Do you have something that can help me?

--I got some knitting supplies and Stitch n Bitch for x-mas!  I knitted my first square!  I would love some more yarns to play around with, as I see this as becoming a hobby of mine!
--A begginers kit for soapmaking, candlemaking, glass etching, wet or needle felting,
--Fabrics and notions.  I love having trims and zippers and buttons to choose from, and I LOVE fabric.  I like retro-geometric looking things.
--I'd love the fixins' to start making jewelry, I have the tools and some things, but I would love more findings, closures, backs, beads, anything like that. You rock!

Surprise me!  I would love to get a surprise in the mail.  It would be fab. Thank you!

I think I'm Ok to post my list now..
I'm in somewhat chilly, northern California
Thank you to you guys who picked me, you are so awesome!!! Grin I can't believe how many times I've been picked thank you all SO MUCH!!!!!!!!
1. New item: I had to add this... even though I really don't deserve any more goodies. But these fawns are maybe the cutest things I have EVER seen. If you could make me one of these fawns I would be in your debt FOREVER!   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=70562.0
I also love these fear monsters https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=63733.0 (thanks for Hertrigger for the idea. Maybe one you can help you with a broken heart?)
1- Something meat themed. Like in the meat swap gallery, I especially LOVE those meat soaps.
2- Jewellry with images. Ie stamps or resin stuff- actually not glass marble stuff  though, cause I make those and have made way too much for myself- Or something with vintage charms.
3- Decorated pillow case. For the middle of my bed, so a single maybe alterntive shaped pillow would be great! My comforter is Green and my sheets are beige. Either something nature/ leaf or bird  themed to go with my bedroom, or just sexy themed cause it is my bed after all!
5- Stenciled or screenprinted Tee. Medium to large, PM me for info Or reconstructed shirt.
6- Stuffy!- just not bloody or dead.. happy and healthy!
8- Mexicana themed stuff (Not Frida though cause I got the motherload of goreous Friday from CraftyZary and maybe not Guadeloupe cause I'm not religious at all)
9- I'd love it if someone made me a little stuffy modelled on a yeast ( the model organism I work on) It would basicaly look like a big off white sphere with a little sphere budding off of it and maybe a cute face- yes I am a dork. Yay Yay Yay!!!!! I will be the envy of my fellow lab rats
10- Wrist cuff (I have a gorgeous one from Lexis, but I want more)
11- Like a hip belt, but something more like a belt with a little compartment. So that it looks like a belt.
12- Beads and charms
13- Stickers- Yay! Thank you so much!!!

15- Art. I would love a water color or painting. Wow.. thank you!!!
About me: 27 year old grad student who spends way too much time on craftster at my desk, instead of where I should be- at my bench doing experiments. I love all animals and animal motifs. Owls and all birds, forest animals, cats etc.. Nature stuff and city artsy stuff too. I love all colors, but probably bright ones over pastels, but earthy ones are great too especially for a nature theme. I also prefer off colors to primaries- ie turquiose over navy blue. I love any old, vintage, retro and mod looking stuff and patterns- but I really like modern stuff too. I love old vintagy stuff like adds ie- fruit crate labels and pin ups. I love when prissy crafts are mixes with racy stuff ie an embroidered pin up- I think that really represents what us awesome craftsters are up to. I also love food stuff, sushi, meat, sweet stuff etc.. probably cause I love food! And I love stuff from other cultures, like asian fabrics and all that amazing Mexicana stuff I've been seeing in the galleries.
Dislikes- just cut up books, and I really don't need any more journals. I just have too many and I'd hate for you to work on something I just can't use. Wink
