Hi all - I'm Jessica from Denver, Colorado.

Here's my wish list:

1.  I love Kanzashi stuff like Puchimaiko here -
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=66747.0 or Asian designed fabric or vintage fabric squares to repair a quilt and make fabric flowers.

2.  Beaded jewelry -  necklaces, bracelets (small wrists), earrings (I have pierced ears), rings (size 7) but especially bracelets and rings.Thanks apandalee!

3.  Cute little stuffed animals, like from the zoo, inspired from Japanese DIY.  I especially admire this fellow crafter's work at http://www.whileshenaps.typepad.com or something like this.

A little bit about myself:  I'm a petite, 43-year-old, young at heart, medical transcriptionist who loves to collect vintage fabric (I'm repairing my husband's 86-year-old grandmother's quilt she made), love Japanese-Asian designs, cute stuff, roosters and chickens, decoupage (just made a beaded handle purse decoupaged with origami and scrapbook papers, check it out https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=70944.0), learning embroidery (Sublime Stitching), making felt accessories - glasses and cosmetic cases, headbands and love vintage clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry (30's to 80's).  Need any more info just PM me, thanks!

i am in canada.

here are my wishes:

1. a sreenprint for my wall or silkscreened patches.

2. a ribbed wool toque (winter cap? what do americans call these things?) - a cap to keep my lid warm in the frigid new year. browns, greys...why fight it, toronto is ugly in the winter, may as well blend in.
thank you thank you!

3. a knitting tote. can be simple or complex. just something with some pockets for crochet hooks and knitting needles. i keep starting these scrap projects that require me to carry around heaps of yarn bits. retro fabric would be the best!

me: i write and make art. i live in toronto. i like my typewriters, art comics, cowgirls, photocopies, zines, laughing, polka dots, stripes, my bicycle, ghosts, umbrellas, gihsts with umbrellas...

I'm in Australia.


1. A messenger bag. If I got one of these I would be so happy (and I would love the maker). Preferably one that will fit lots of stuff in it, with lots of pockets. An adjustable strap would be great, because I like bags to hang low. This one is perfect https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38587.0

2. Mix CD's. One, or a few. Themed would be great (like pirates, horses, something else you can think of). I don't care what's on them, as long as there's no rap, r'n'b, hip hop, anything like that. I would love you for evermore if you could make a mix CD with anime music on it, but that music is hard to find.

3. Wall art. Any kind of art or drawings done by someone else. Doesn't matter what's on it. I like having other people's art on my walls.
  Thankyou halblingefrau!

About me: My name is Rachel and I'm 15 (16 this year). I like horses. I like blues and black. I prefer cool colours- not fond of hot colours. I'm one of those people who likes anime and manga (the Japanese animation and comics). I like reading, knitting, drawing and generally being creative. If you need to know anything else, PM me.

I am in the US (in SC).
Here's my wishlist: 

*  Homemade pads w/ care instructions.  Cute/fun prints or solid color, whatever you've got!
* A learn to stencil kit <3 I really wanna learn!
*  Reconned/stenciled/painted shoes (sz US 7.5) ...maybe knockoff Vans/Cons?  Wink
A little about me:  I recently moved from a city of 121,395 to a horrible small town of 12,765 (roughly).  It's not the size that I loathe, it's the atmosphere and people. Cheesy  And I live next door to my in-laws, no less!  How's that for silver lining?  I'm truly not a bitter person; at 27 I hope I have at least a decade ahead of me for that! Wink   I like and wear green and blue a lot.  I don't like gold, yellow, pastel pink, or orange.  I like: coffee, turtles, monkeys, pirates/sailors, 80s cartoons, 50s style designs, stars, and skullys.  For anything else please PM or e-mail me.  Thank you in advance!  Smiley   

---PS: I don't have a digital camera yet, or easy access to one.  So if you pick me, please take pics of your work before sending!---

Okay...I get to post my list! YAY!

[s]Wish #1- Art. Anything...seriously. A painting, a collage, a photograph, something to hang on my too bare walls. I want something done by someone else.
Thank you so much! I can't wait!!! Grin

Wish#2- A wallet. I need pockets and maybe a change zipper...maybe the change zipper is asking too much. No duct tape though....it's the only thing I CAN do. The funkier the fabric, the better!

Wish #3- Surprise me! Do what you do best. I'm sure I'll love it.

About me...I'm 27, I live in Ohio. It's COLD. I like pink and green and black. I hate blue. I love beaded stuff, scarves and stationary. I like polka dots and Wonder Woman and stars and honeysuckle scented stuff. I enjoy a hot cup of tea and knitting and writing letters. Kogepan is my newest obsession, and Hello Kitty is so cute it's almost painful. I like silver, hate gold. I have a tree thing lately...I love trees on things. I'm a big girl, and am all about the body positive thing. I make ATCs, so I like little bits of wierd papers...Um...is this enough about me? Feel free to stalk me to find out what my likes and dislikes are! (Um...stalk my posts, not me...LOL!) Grin[/color][/color][/s]

Yay! Another month of unconditional fun!

I am in Saskatchewan, Canada.

I wish for...

1. A cute t-shirt: screened or stenciled (http://www.glarkware.com/securestore/c181846p16737910.2.html = best. shirt. EVER.), appliqued, reconstructed (am a big fan of the v-neck: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=28382)...anything goes! Size L (feel free to email for specific measurements if you want).

2. A chunky, beaded necklace along the lines of https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51244.0 THANK YOU!!

3. A pair of knit (or crocheted!) armwarmers OR a panta (they look so great on everyone else!) - these are things that have been on my "to do" list for a long time, but it seems like I am always too busy to craft things for MYSELF! (I am sure that many of you can relate) THANK YOU!!

What you need to know about me? I am 26 and going through a bit of what I've heard people call the "quarter-life crisis". I am a university student (french major, history minor). I am a mom and a wife and a million other things. I love bold colours, clean lines, stuff with a funky/retro/mod feel. I am sarcastic and silly and love anything that is a bit tongue-in-cheek.

I am in Oklahoma.

Wishes are:  1.  I would love to have a decorated box with deviders to organize my greeting cards.  I have tons and tons of greeting cards but don't use them as much as I should because it is a hassle to look through them for the right occasion.  So this would make me really happy, and organization makes me calmer.  woo hoo.  YEA, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

2.  I would like to have a baby sling like is on this thread https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50415.0 to carry my grandchildren in.  Some nice breathable woven fabric would be great as they live in Florida.

and 3.  fancy stitch markers for crochet projects  Yiipee, thank you KatPenguino!!!!

A little about me.  42 mother of 5 grandmother of one and one on the way. Favorite color is black but I love colors, like goats, iris', hummingbirds, wild cats are cool.  I love to read, love music of most genres, love crafting and movies and my kids.  I am very busy and somethimes get very tired, but don't we all that are multitaskers.  Modified to include:  I collect musicals, everything from My Fair Lady and Annie, to West Side Story and Purple Rain, Love them!!
