I am in Portland, Oregon.

My Desires:

1........Earring organizer, like an old frame with wire mesh on the back, something at least 11x14 that i can hang on my wall 

2........Science/Biology themed necklace or earrings.  Equations, charts, anatomy, periodic table of elements, uber nerd stuff. I'M SO EXCITED! THANKS BOBOLINK  Grin

3........A valentine/birthday surprise.  I am turning 30 on the 12'th  Sad  so something to keep me from spiraling into deep dark depression!     THANK YOU WRITER78  Wink
I am 29, a photographer, and native oregonian.  I wear a lot of black, a lot of scarfs, and nothing very girly girl. (no pink)  I like quirky, eclectic things, and vintage fashions.  Currently I am really into tweedy fabrics and embroidered stuff.  Weird=good. I LOVE old road maps, and charts and graphs of random things or long scientific type equations, typewriters, all animals (especially horses), robots and satellites.  I don't like pastels, but I love bright greens and blues, all shades of red, and of course black and gray.

I'm excited for this round! I'm way more confident in my crafting skills, so I hope I can find some things to make for others!

I live in the USA... Michigan to be exact.

1. a cute animal japanese styled plushie/stuffed animal! or even an amigurumi animal... all the ones i've seen are so adorable! I'm so jealous that I can't make them. By sewing skills are barely beginner, and i can't afford a pattern book right now.

2.a 'learn your craft kit." I'm really interested in learning how to knit, needle or wet felting, make kanzashi flowers, and book binding.

3. A journal/mini book to keep track of all my crafty needs. I'd love for it to be small enough to fit inside a purse too!

Thank you all soo much for looking!
Here's a lil info on me: I'm Miranda, 23 yrs old, married. I'm also straight edge, which means i dont drink, smoke, or do drugs. i looove all animals. I love cool colors especially blues and greens. I also like dark earthy colors like deep greens, burgundy, etc. I'm into tattoos and suspensions. oh, and I LOVE books too! Some of my interests/fave motifs are pinup girls, ani difranco, puppies, sewing, embroidery, tribal cultures, crime scenes, etc etc etc! The crafts I'm into right now are embroidery, felting, recon clothing, decoupage, etc. Thanks in advance!

I live in the land of Virgina and the following things would bring me joy:

1. A bag for my knitting that does not have flowers on it
2. knitting supplies- knitting and being poor do not go well togeather, especially if you do not like acrylic/ novelty yarn; so if anyone is up for a little stash busting I would appreciate it (if you have any extra needles that need a home too, that would be great) mjadams is fabulous human being
3. A necklace, or really jewelry of any sort I enjoy 20's style, chain maile, and really anything shiny.

I am geeky 19 year old college student, majoring in English, who loves sparkles, french and music of the indie rock persuasion. Actually the last one is not quite true, I do like some indie rock (woo! Ember Swift), but really I just had to take that opportunity to make an odd 10 things I hate about you reference. I am what some people would call "weird," although I perfer the term awesome. My favorite colors are purple, green, and black; my current heroes are Joss Weadon and Neil Gaiman; I think robots are neat looking, dragons are too; Star Wars is awesome, and Batman would totally beat Superman in a fight.

Thanks a ton to the person(people) who pick me, and sorry if my info is a bit nonsensical, I am a bit sleepy.

I am in the UK

A panta (this appears to be an ongoing theme!) I think i may have a slightly larger than average head - if you want I can measure it hehe - all my family has large heads!

Anything polkadotty - journal, clothes, belt, anything! - I love polka dots - as a heads up though if your going for  clothing or a scarf or something else wearable then I would prefer polka dots as accents or little polka dots, rather than big dots all over. Plus it's a bit anal, but I like my polka dots evenly-spaced 

A 'That time of the month' care package LOL! I get sick and achy and my whole body gets soo tired! I'm not gonna give any ideas cos I don't wanna limit you amazing crafty people!! I will love whatever you send

I'm 20, I live with my parents and 13 yr old bro and15 yr old sis, I LOVE craftster, and I love to bake. Clothing size - I am a large medium or a small large (basically depends on the shop to which one I'm in!!) UK size 14-16 (again depends on shop/ material!)  Oh I just cos I'm happy about it - I got a digicam for christmas! (So I can post pics of whatever you make )

Haven't been too well recently - not fallen off the face of the earth.
Ooh - I have a Wist http://www.wists.com/TheRehn

Hi! I'm in Florida and I'd love:

1) Any used Charles Dickens paperbacks. I'm on a Dickens Kick (lol) and would love to curl up with one or two of them....if you're finished reading them of course! Thank you redheadedali!!!!

2) A small kitchen apron or kitchen towel with "Kristi's Diner" embroidered or stencilled on it - i can do both crafts but haven't the time, and I'm sure I'd like yours better. My kitchen colors are retro red and orange.

3) A baseball-themed necklace or bracelet. I work in professional sports and would like a little feminine piece of jewelry (something real simple), like a baseball bead or charm on a ribbon,  to wear on game days. Thank YOU kika62 !!!!

I'm a young 39, live with my family and two cats; and love the beach, the colors black, grey, dark blue, persimmon, cream and turquoise; a 1940s vintage style; fiesta ware; flowers, pearls, ribbons cats, the BBC, and thrifting! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with! - lucy

I live in England, and I would love love love:

1) A hoodie! Oh, PLEASE, I'm begging you, thou with hoodie-making skills! I really, really want one, a hoodie with cute appliques or stencils on. Oh, please! Hearts, stars, skulls, playing cards, trees...Oh, I can't think of anything else, but I would ADORE a hoodie! (Women's size small, or possibly medium.)

Note: I do mean just a bought hoodie, decorated. You don't have to make it from scratch!!!

2) Some hair candy. Smiley I'm growing my hair and it's very long and THICK and unruly, so I can only pin it back. I'd love some kanzashi or crochet flower clips (like THESE!!! especially.

3) Some stationary. I seem to have acquired a LOT of penpals recently, and my stationary is skanky (and I'm sure that they'd agree.) I can't think off the top of my head what to put ATM, so PM me and we shall talk!
thank you sassyword!

I'm fourteen, at school, rather arty and have no time for science.
I play the cello and the piano.
I love hearts, skull-and-crossbones, stars, trees, flowers (but not drawing landscapes), painting people, food, writing, Amy Tan, Jane Austen, pink, purple, black, grey, sea green and the ocean. Smiley

I'm in California:

1.  A bag to store/carry my knitting stuff.  The larger the better, but I won't be too picky.  Needle case would be great in addition or instead of the bag.  I'm a new knitter but have accumulated lots of stuff already!

2.  An iPod cozy for my brand new iPOD.  Its a 30gig video iPOD (not the nano)

3.  A surprise... after you read my interests below, figure out what you think I "need"!  Yippee!  Thanks!  I can't wait to see what it is!

I am 29, a native Californian (and San Diegan).  I like simple designs, I'm not real girly or into florals and stuff.  I like black, grey, red, deep purple, jewel colors and silver.  I am an English major, obsessed with music, particularly Jeff Buckley and I have three turtles all named after musicians (Buckley, Dylan, and Simone (as in Nina).  I practice yoga, am a vegetarian and I go to Burning Man.  I love ethnic designs and fabrics, especially Asian and Indian prints.

Hi, I'm in New York...

1- Any kind of supplies that you have laying around- particularly fabric, yarn, pretty paper, knitting magazines, glass beads, did i mention fabric? Hehe.

2- DIY papermaking, stencil, or embroidery kit.
Thank you so much XbelovedXoneX! I can't wait  Grin

3- A clutch like this one or this one:

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32972.140 [its on page 15]

About me: I'm 22 and I'm going for my masters in early education. I work at a daycare center in a classroom filled with four year olds. I love to knit, crochet, cook, and sew. I want to broaden my crafting horizons though so I want to learn some new things. I love dark gem-like colors, especially blues, plums, and reds. I love geometric, amy butler, bold flowers, and kimono looking fabric. I don't like picture pictures on fabric [I hope that made sense, ha]. I'm a simple girly-girl. I think this picture best sums up my style: http://static.flickr.com/31/63660763_ae87a69fec.jpg?v=0

I am in Saskatchewan, Canada.

I would love:

1. some cute cloth pads https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=18462.0 and, if you're especially ambitious, a pouch to hold both the pads and my Diva Cup

2. a screened or stencilled shirt (women's size L) along the lines of this one - my friends tease me about being a member of the "grammar gestapo", so this shirt would be highly appropriate! If you know some French, then something bilingual would also be fun, OR something with a retro-americana/vintage style that says "SuperMom" OR whatever. Smiley THANK YOU!!!

3. a crafty surprise for my husband - he is 27, loves soccer (plays for an indoor team called "The Speedbumps"), hockey (favorite team is the Montreal Canadiens). He crochets (my grandma taught him last year) and is really into film & video editing. He wears a lot of t-shirts and drinks a ridiculous amount of Dr. Pepper and is kind of dorky in a "marches to the beat of his own drummer" kind of way. Does this inspire anyone?

About me? I am a 26 yr old university student (french major, history minor). I have a 23-month-old daughter and three "fur babies" (cats). I love things with a retro/vintage/kitschy flair, clean lines, bold colours (teal, fuschia, orange, green etc).

I am Hull, England

My three wishes are..........

1. I would love someone forever if they could make me a roll for my needle files, this is the same as a knitting needle roll but my needle files are all between 16 and 18 cm's long and less than a cm wide each. I have about 25 of them though at the moment. As I said I would adore you forever and ever!

2. Crochet flower hair slides, in block colours if possible! I have learnt to crochet squares, but as yet can not do anything but straight even lines! My brain just won't take it on!

3. Anything with natutical stars or skull and crossbones on, stationary, jewellrey, clothing, anything!! Thank you so much Hertrigger!

A bit about me, I love five pointed stars, especially nautical ones, I also love pirates and tattoo fabric. My favourite colour is green but i like hot pink, black almost as much.
I like punk music and especially psychobilly and rockabilly styles.
I'm at college training to be a jeweller, hence the needle file roll!!
I love getting surprises!
