Okay, I'm going to claim morning stars decorated swap notebook. I NEVER made a book before. But I REALLY want to! I have tons of ideas. If it turns out that I suck at it, I'll just buy you a really nice one, so either way, you'll have one...... ooooohhhh. I'm so excited

OFF TOPIC: I was flaked on from round 4. I asked for this clutch, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24610.0    Want to be my angel?  go here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=71052.0

My list in no particular order:

1) Jewelry is always nice:) I got necklaces from craftyzary, and orange_sunset, and I'm expecting more to come, but a girl can never have enough jewelry! If you choose this, I'll be more specific in what I like.

2) One of those book clocks, and maybe a clock movement that doesnt have a second hand. I hate the tick tock sound. I'd like it to match my room, so I could send you a picture of my room so you can get some ideas. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=20621.0

3) A sewn black purse I can use when I go out. (not too big, but big enough for wallet, keys, phone) Must have a zipper, so I dont lose things. Not a clutch because I find them annoying. Small handle, but big enough to prop up onto my shoulder. Black and silver would be cool. Maybe a little wintery with little itty bitty embroidered snowflake type things. THANKS REDSTAR13!

4) A purse in the style of this dress. Even the colors are good, but maybe instead of the whites, you could use a golden/amber color since its wintertime. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=15736.0

5) A felted bead necklace or bracelet. I think these are pretty cool.. I like it long, but it doesnt have to be all beads.. I like when there is a space between beads, or you could do little felted beads, and then a big felted bead, and then more little ones and then another big one, and use the little ones as spacers.   

6) a jewelry making kit, and instructions would be cool.  Like not the beads and string kind, but more of the wire, chain, and fancy tools kind. Preferably not a store bought kit, but maybe if you put something together for me, like a how-to. Maybe you could start a piece of jewelry so I have something to work on, and instructions and supplies for me to finish it. I can never find anything I like in the store, so it would be nice if I could make them for myself and my friends.

7) a mini duffle! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=7290.0

8.) a belt purse: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=47995.0

9) a ribbon scarf: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24510.0

10) a knit cabled belt. I saw it in SnB nation. Maybe in a creamy beige or off white?

11) A tote purse like this, but it must have a zipper. When I looked at the first picture, it looked like there would be a zipper to close the whole thing, but it doesnt.... I need a zipper--I'm clumsy and things fall out. plus I dont like that the contents of my purse is visible to all (cell phone, wallet, keys, etc... no one need to see those things) Please make it sturdy, maybe plastic canvas? idk, i dont sew, so I dont know what would be best. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=66361.0

12) yarn. any color, any amount. just no red heart super saver and what I like to call "scratchy" yarns (cheap, acrylic, and rough). Also no fun fur or boa or feather yarn-IMO they're tacky. Oh, and no yarn from frogged sweaters, scarves, etc (just creeps me out for some reason. idk. I'm weird.. maybe its the whole I'm touching something that has been sitting for hours in a strangers armpit, or if its a scarf,then they've been sneezing and snotting on it all winter....icky)

Okay, about me: I'm 23, live in Jersey. I'm girly. Not lace and toole girlie, but I do embrace my feminine side. I guess my style is more classic and sophisticated, with just a hint of trendy. I've come to learn that trends change so quickly, so might as well stick with things that will stand the test of time. I like colors with warm undertones, I'd pick a cream shirt, over a white one.  Bold colors look best on me as opposed to colors that look washed out.  I dont like punk, or hearts, or black and red, or black and white things. If I had the money, I'd shop at arden b, and bebe, but I'm recently employed, and I'm saving my money so I can move out.  I have allergies, so please keep things pet hair free.  Whoever claims me, please PM me with what you're making and any questions you have, and I'll try to be more specific.

To whoever picks me... THANK YOU in advance for whatever you choose to make for me!

i will make your hipbelt obsessed!  this is my first wish for this swap!
please pm me your info and fave colors and such!

da list!

- i just saw this cute cardigan in the geek swap board...i want one!  something equally dorky embroidered on a secondhand cardi would be perfect! heres the link...scroll down! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=65877.30

- i realllly would like a skirt made out of mens ties.  if you take this on, i will give you my measurements and stuff.  i would prefer it to be dark colored ties and to just above my knee.  there are a couple examples around here somewhere.

- 4 little bumper stickers--- me and my three scooter friends really need new stickers for our scooters.  we are known only to eachother as the "Motor 'Cooters!"---  our theme colors are red black and white! 

- knitted sockies!  (bente has me addicted now!)

- an ipod cozy.

- any vintagy or retro type fabric

- the knitted amelia earhart hat! http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/kpatt07.htm

this one is a long shot...but worth a try. 
- a sturdy messenger type bag but instead of having the cross your heart strap i would love it to have back pack straps....and it would be super duperdity kewl if it had a nurse/medical themed embellishment/applique/whatever on it!  (i did put this wish in the unconditional swap too so if it gets picked i will remove it from the list it doesnt get picked from.)  i would love to show it off to all my nursing school buddies! 

- a goofy pointy hat like seen here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=55152.0 making that one for goldfish girl inspired me!

- a set of hot pads and an oven mitt.

- a handmade journal to keep track of my swap stuff in.

- some art for my walls (i remembered morningstar)  i like classic looking artwork, mixed media, any sort of painting.  my living room is terra cotta and my rooms are sage green.  it would be nice if it fit into the color scheme some how!

- yarn!  any yarn!

my fave colors are earthy:  browns, greens, oranges, deep reds, and yellows.  i am sort of a modern day hippie girl!  i love anything earthy and naturific!  i heart chickens and coffee and i have a good sarcastic sense of humor!

I got your 4 little bumper stickers taloola. This is my first wish.

Here's my list.

1. Buttons / badges - I love them! (I only wish I had a button maker.) Preferably the 1 - 1 ones.

2. A stenciled t-shirt. There are some particular ones (by CupcakeBunnies) that I LOVE but I dont know if you could replicate the stencil? https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50710.0  Pictures #2, 6, 8, 22 If not, then some other cool stencil! PM me for size/color preference

3. A guitar strap. I just have a plain black one now so a cute one with something embroidered or stenciled or even just one that is made from fabric with a funky pattern.

4. Fat Quarters / Quarter Flats of fabric with funky designs on them for my zipper pouch making abilities.

5. I really really really REALLY love this clutch (as does obsessed) https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24610.0

6. I love bands like Operation Ivy, Rancid, The Bouncing Souls, Green Day (PM me for more) so anything you can make that has to do with them Id love
                   *going along with the music theme, Id LOVE a mix tape/cd of 80s/90s punk bands*
                      Or I really like The Veronicas - I think theyre Australian - so a cd/tape of bands who sound similar to them would be lovely.

7. A long wallet. I cant find one on here but, you know, one that is about the size of a dollar bill, usually with a closure of some sort and you open it up to find lots of pockets. One of those made from some pretty fabric. PM me for details.

8. A hoodie. I would LOVE YOU FOREVER if you made me a zip up hoodie. Maybe with something stenciled or screen printed or embroidered on it? PM me for size and stuff.

9. A chunky beaded bracelet with beads that arent perfectly cut, like not circles/squares but random shapes. I hope you know what I mean. Any color except aqua/light blue

10. Beads (glass or those little rocaille seed beads) bright colors please!, wire, clasps, head/eye pins - anything for jewelry making.

11. Any patterned paper or stickers or anything for scrap booking.

12. Something for my very blank walls. Something abstract preferably. Painted/pictures cut out from magazines/something stenciled on a piece of paper - anything! The colors of my room are lime green, red, yellow, and orange so maybe it could go along with that or black and white is always nice.

13. A panta, of course. Black or green please.

14. Ive seen a few different stuffed elephant patterns but if anyone can make one like this http://www.etsy.com/get_jpg_full_image.php?image_id=106404 Id love it. (I think its kind of like this one but with shorter legs https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=28412.0)

15. I collect shot glasses so if you could maybe get a plain shot glass and decorate it (and put what city/state/country it came from on it) Id love to add it to my collection.

About Me:
Im Samantha, Im almost 16. I live on Cape Cod (in Massachusetts, USA) and arent exactly fond of it. My favorite colors are bright (not neon) green, gray, purple, deep blue, and bright (again, not neon) pink. I like stars, hearts, cute skulls, spades, mushrooms, and cute little dinosaurs. Oh! I also love sparkly things like sequins or rhinestones or anything like that. I <3 polka dots and funky, geometrical patterns also. PM me for any additional information that you need.

I have an embroidery machine! If you want to do personal swaps for machine embroidered items, (or are in my swaps!) let me know!
