Ok- here's my list.
I live in northern California
1- I've changed this one- cause I'm getting lots of forest stuffies now from other swaps.
Food stuffy! or just funny food themed item, where the food has a face / personality etc..
I love meat, sushi, sweet stuff and I think toast stuffies are adorable.
2-2- Anything needle felted / wet felted. [/s] Thank you Veludo- you're the best!
3- A journal with different colored funky pages inside.  I don't need a blank one for writing, but I'd love one I could put photos- scrapbooking- in or use as a knitting journal.
like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=74965.40

About me: 28 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.

I'm in Southern California (USA)...

My wish list:

(1) A cute little zippered pouch or something to keep in my purse for receipts.   I am using an envelope now, but they tend to get ratty and ugly.  I keep the receipts for a week until we do our weekly accounting/budget, so that we can track our expenditures on food, gas, clothing, etc. Thanks so much, akredhead!! Smiley

(2) Magnets for my fridge to match my kitchen. It's Folkart Roosters and Cows.  I have a few Laurie Korsgaden Rooster prints, a cow print on tin, a huge ceramic rooster on top of my fridge, and some framed farm/pastoral scenes. The colors are a sagey green and a dark rose. (the sagey green extends into the living room, but the accessories in there are a mix of milk glass, blue&white china, and cranberry glass, with an emphasis on the Blue Willow pattern)

(3) A hook roll, like the knitting needle rolls, but for my crochet hooks. I have about a dozen hooks, from the tiny ones used for lace & beading socks, to a size K.

I'm a 26y/o SAHM to 5 kids, a girl scout leader, and a catholic.  I don't drink/smoke/do drugs. I listen to country music, oldies, and a bit of alternative. I like zebra print, some paisleys, corduroy, and jewel tones (emerald, sapphire, garnet, etc.) I have a dog (outside), 3 noisy parrots, and 10 spoiled fishies.

Thanks so much for reading!

Be what you would seem to be - or, if you'd like it put more simply - never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.

Thank you for your generosity and time in the January Swap!  Honestly, Im floored!  Cheesy

Im in Toronto, Canada.

1.   I dragonboat in the summer and were gearing up for this season. I would LOVE a cute bag or tote to carry around my gear/spare clothes.  Any sort of dark sturdy fabric lined with something light and fun would be fantastic!!!!  (I'm addicted to bags)

2.   Lined zippered pouch in a light, fun, flirty fabric about the size of a small make up bag or pencil case.

3.   A Let Me Be Your Grasshopper Kit! I would be so grateful for a diy kit on bookbinding or stenciling.

I'm 28 and I spend my days in front of a computer. I volunteer my spare time to working on community theatre musicals (currently 50 kids in Beauty & the Beast aish!).  I love japanese fabric and I'm itching to learn how to use a sewing machine. I'm a beginner knitter, dabble in wet & needle felting, beading, wire art and paper crafts.  I think I'm addicted to STUFF in general. My favorite colours are black, blue, and silver. I'm also drawn to cranberry red, rich chocolate browns with bright blues

Dreams, born and living, have but one soul; Yours.

Visit the insanity:

Hey guys!
I'm in Canada.

Wish #1: You're probably so tired of these but Kanzashi hair pins would be so nice for my hair.  With a neato button in the middle or something.  Thanks so much, madmatigan79! :D

Wish #2: A cd player cozy/pouch.  It seems like I'm one of the few people who are still using cd players.  The least I can do is make it look cool ;]

Wish #3: SURPRISE! Just one small thing! : D

Soooo, I'm currently 14 (fifteen in two months!) and in high school.  I really like vintage, Japanese, Chinese, British, bold, classic things.  I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter, Gene Kelly, & The Beatles.  I spend my spare time (not that there is much nowadays anyway) reading, drawing, dancing, and attempting to make things.  Ohh, and owls fascinate me for some odd reason.  I don't like gross-eye cancer-neon colours and gray.  Although I like bumblebee yellow just for some pazzaz.  I also like greens, golds, peach, turqouise, brown, black, and white.  Please PM me for further info! Thanks!  :D

Let me throw my list into the mix too! I'm in Ohio, USA.

1. A wallet. I have one now that my mom gave me that is kinda old lady flower-ish. It's a great size and it's functional, but I'd love one that's cuter. Funky fabrics would be fabulous! A zipper to hold coins would be nice, but not a necessity.

2. Anything with Wonder Woman on it for me, or Batman for the boy. Something functional that we can show off at work. OH! Or Batman buttons so he can wear on his name badge holder thingy! He just got a cubical too, so he's pretty pysched about that. Something functional for his desk would be neat...

3. Surprise me!

A little about me...I dabble in all crafts...I like to try anything once. I love pink and green together, and black too. I like stars and polka dots. I hate blue and purple. Not hate...just don't really like, but they are okay in small doses. I don't really have any kind of specific style...it really depends on my mood that day. If you have questions, feel free to PM me!  Grin Thanks in advance!

I want your promo stickers...your fave local band, your etsy shop, your zine, a sticker you picked off a bar wall, or even bumper stickers! I'm covering a table & need stickers! PM me!


Free gift with every purchase!

Hi! I live in SNOWY and FREEZING Anchorage, AK...


1. A funky but glamorous clutch...something fun and colorful would be great!

2. A monster messenger bag. I think they are the cutest ever. Thank you!
3. A t-shirt or tank top (size L-XL i have big boobs) that says "Jack Nasty <3 You"

Info: I'm 27 years old. I love animals specifically: otters, hedgehogs and bumblebees. My favorite colors: dark purple, teal, chocolate brown, dark red, dark green, grey and black. Email me if you have any questions. Thanks so much!
