a little about me...im 28... i live in ohio (in an icebox for an apartment) with my husband and adorable 2 year old son...i love cutesy things esp. japanese style like hello kitty and tare panda... and that kanzashi stuff (that i just discovered through this site)...i also like retro/mod style stuff and colorful things (except kelly green nothing against any kelly's out there and oranges, greens and yellows in general are best for accents colors)...oh and i love penguins...hmm...im not sure what else to put, pm me if you are curious about anything....and a pre-thank you to anyone who chooses me...i am so psyched about this, i have tried to get my out-of-state friends to do something like this with me for years and it never worked out...

so now the really fun part....my wishes ...hopefully none too big...

*i would love a fun messanger bag style bag (flap helps keeps toys from spiling out) with some pockets to toss -n- take my sons toys in when we go visiting - something very not diaper bag looking thank you! im looking forward to it!

*i would love a felted bag i am facinated by felting...

*speaking of ... i am dying to try felting a DIY felting kit would be awesome (and make you super awesome)...wet or needle...or the most awesome would be both so i could needle felt decorate something that i have wet felted (sorry if i didnt get the right terminology - shows my need for instruction) thank you, i am so excited!!

*ive always wanted to try knitting socks and i have heard of some kind of self patterning sock yarn...ive never seen it (maybe it doesnt exist)...but a DIY sock kit with that type of yarn and an easy starters pattern would rock

*a big knitting bag of some sort to hold my current project would be great too, right now i use plastic bags...which between that and moving yarn is really more temptation than my cats can handle and makes life difficult

*a velvet scarf like this  ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=65841.0 ) with some kind of retro or cutesy theme would also make me very happy
*handmade journal...anykind...but i do like this(in case you need ideas)

*a surprise - i especially love glittery stuff

*random fun fabric

*your favorite yarn

this one will probably push me over the "too big for her britches" line...but it is a wish list...wishful thinking right?...

*i would love a shawl of some sort (preferrably black or white or gray)...i saw these post and just thought they were great...

thank you so much for whoever picks me...i love getting stuff in the mail and am so excited to finally own homemade stuff that i havent made for myself  Grin

'bout me:
I'm 26 and live in socal. I love music more than anything!! uh..... I work like a million hours a week, but i love crafting so... yeh. I mostly sew and have started doing alot of stenciling - which i love! I love fabric. like REALLY love fabric. I keep buying it faster than i could possible use it, but it's all good! I'm a conundrum of personality.  I love music. My style runs along the lines of psychobilly-rockabilly/ 1940's classic, though I'm a punk rock kid at heart. I love black, and red. I like that pretty kelly-st. paddy's day green too. I love skulls. And pirates. I think I was a pirate in my past life. I guess I'm a cross between a pinup obsessor- a riot grrl and a dead girl!

My craft du jour is sewing. I love fabricy stuff. I revamp stuff for other people all the time

1)   Norwegian stockings like these:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=59711.0 (I adore these!)

2)   Genie bottle earrings like these (SO pretty!): https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=65456.0

3)   Resin magnets of vintage photos, something small, maybe large button sized?

4)   Martini ANYTHING Im a bit of a lush Wink

5)   Asian/Oriental fabrics theyre so lush and rich looking, and make up into the most fantastic handbags ever!

6)   Jack Skellington themed items Wahooo!!!

7)   I know this might be a long shot, but any purse hardware you have lying around, crying out to be used (ie. Handles, zippers, etc)

Cool   PIRATES! (stole this from another Pirate-y fan)

9)   An argyle sock monkey theyre SO STINKIN CUTE!

10)   Cute little animal stuffie keychain like this (type of animal doesnt matter): https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=74670.0

11)   Sparkly, glittery anything Im akin to the raccoons that used to get trapped by their fascination for all things shinymmmm, shiiiiiiiiny.

12)   A How To Applique Starter Kit (preferably homemade, but store bought works too)

13)   Another long shot, but hey, its a wish!  A homemade soft bra like these: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=71824.0 I'm not pregnant like the gal who created this, but it just screams "wear me!" to my eyes Smiley

14)           Lace up arm warmers like this (so SEXY):  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=75506.0

15)  A fabu skirt like this would rock my bobby socks (even though it's not a 50's skirt, it's damned hot) https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=60257.0

16)  Any fun, silver jewelry - I'm totally into retro/mod, geometrics.  SmileyThanks!

A little about me Im just outside of Portland, Oregon.  Im a customer service rep at a small company, and often have nothing to do, hence my craftster addiction.  I make handbags on the side, and its a blast   I have a 3 y/o daughter whos also into pirates and monkeys, so the pirate-y and monkey-y things would probably wind up in her hands  unless theyre obviously adult-related, like a wallet or something.  I have a special affinity for geometric, graphic prints, retro looking things, 50s space age futuristic styled items, Michael Miller fabrics, Michael Graves design, and Frank Lloyd Wright housing.  I dont particularly have colors that I dont like everything looks great with the right compliments.  However, my favorite color is purple, followed a close second by black.  Im a natural redhead who likes to dye her hair crazy colors (currently burgundy and black), and Im pretty damned crazy.  Plus Im a lush, and I like using the word lush to describe things   Like fabric.
