Swap name: The 2006 Wishlist March Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  irid3sc3nt
Sign-up date range: The end of March!  03/31/06
Date to send item by: Must send out item within 2 weeks of picking a partner
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No WAY!!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Of course!
All ages allowed? Or 18+?  Yes, just make sure its ok with the parental
Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders" list and
will not allow those members to participate:

This is really different from the unconditional swap, so PLEASE read all
the details before you join.. this is a wishlist swap. Do you REALLY want
something to start the new year off craft-tastic? Post a list and you may
receive it! Smiley
FIRST: You will look through the lists of the people who have already
posted.  You will THEN pick someone from there to craft for.

SECOND: As soon as you have messaged me telling me who you would like to
craft for I will tell you that you can post a list.

Sounds easy right? Not THAT easy.. heres how it goes
- to be able to post a list you have to craft for at least ONE person
- you may put as many items on your list as you wish, but there must be AT LEAST 5 on there
- there isnt a set number of times you can be picked.. you can be picked for as many times as you have items on your list (10 items on list, can be picked 10 times)
- if you have been picked 3 times, you have to pick one other person to craft
For, then you can picked more..
so heres an example:

I post my list. Person A wants to have their list posted so they PM me and tell
me they want to make person B _____.. I will then PM person A, give them person
Bs address, then they can then post their list.
Person C wants to have a list up, so they choose from A OR B, PM me and wait until I send them the address.  Then they can post their list.

Say person A has been chosen 3 times. For them to be picked a 4th-whatever times, they have to pick one more person to craft for.  I will let you know when you need to pick someone else if you want to receive more items.

This is different than the unconditional swap!!! The unconditional swap is not expecting anything in return for what you have
made. A lot of people post their lists without even making anything for someone,
so to be able to post your list (and receive) you must craft for at least ONE person!

As for me, I'm 21, I am an English Literature major who loves Whitman (I actually have a mild obsession with Uncle Walt), Hawthorne, Poe, and Twain, and I have a dog named Huckleberry. Crazy fact about me: I worked with monkeys my first year of college, and miss them terribly. I am part Native American, and I also love Native American Lit.  I can sew and crochet, and do photography, mixed media, a little jewelry work, and paint.  I love the simplicity of how Angelina Jolie dresses, and the dainty 40's ness of Kirsten Dunst in Spiderman 2.  I typically wear plain white tanks and jeans or black or gray t-shirts and jeans, or boat neck tees and circle skirts.  I like things that look like they're from the 20s-40s (think The Hours) and interesting (but professional-looking- I'll start student teaching soon) accessories.  My favorite animals are fawns, monkeys, and bluebirds (and of course, Huck).  Here are my wishes:

Surprise me!  I bow to the Craftster genius!

I have reorganized my wish list.  Thanks to everyone who has or is crafting for me!

1.   I would love some tote bags to carry on the weekends.  Jordy, easy-peasy tote, slouch hobo- anything along
            those lines.  Not complex or large, just sturdy and big enough for wallet, keys, phone, a book, etc. I
            would love some summery prints (stylized butterflies in sherbety colors, birds, swirls, polka dots, pale
            yellow or maybe bumblebees, Japanese bunnies in forest (its neony colors, and in some post
           somewhere- Ill try to find it; its a print I have been dying for, but cant find anywhere), etc.), a black
           and white pattern with a black panel down the middle, geometric prints or stylized flowers in pastel colors
           on a tan background
               This bag is beautiful: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73668.470 
               I also love this bag:

2.   Id love a pale blue tote or messenger bag embroidered with No Day But Today in black

3.   Embellished knitting needles- Id love size 4, 7, 8, 10, 10.5, or some double pointed needles to give a try;
             stain them with pretty colors (blue, pink, green, etc.), fimo the ends, use beads, whatever you want!

4.   A shawl for spring (think Jessica Simpson on the Newlyweds), in any style, as long as itll work with jeans
           and a tank top; Id love a tan or a denim blue-ish color

5.   a hot/cold pack in a pretty fabric for boo-boos/cramps/sore muscles (fridge and microwave safe, please)

6.   A stenciled t-shirt
            - one with little elephants going around the hem
          - So little to do, so much time. Wait, stop.  Reverse that.
            - Working Class Hero (in blocky, collegiate kind of letters)
            - The opposite of war isnt peace- its creation!
            - I love this Anthropologie shirt:
            - the Jane Austen swap shirt here, complete with the hilarious quote on the back (white transfer on black
                   tee); perfect for an English Lit major:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.pho?topic=74360.70
           - the Alice one Morning Star made here is great (though maybe with the
                   image near the hem and off center):

10.   Fabric (enough for a tote or a circle skirt); PM me for links to   
              favorite fabrics if youd like; I'd really like black and white stylized or geometric prints, cotton (not
              shiny) Japanese fabrics, geometric prints in tan, pale blue, etc., stylized butterflies or flowers in
             sherbety tones, big stylized flowers, a monkey-print toile (not cartoonish), etc.)

11.   Ribbon scarf: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24510.0 in colors shown or greens

12.   DIY project kit! (this is my teach a man to fish principle)
              - make beaded necklaces (beads, wire, findings, etc.)
              - altered book or book binding (papers, cutouts, pictures, stickers, etc.)
              - embroidery
           it would be wonderful to just start crafting away, without having to hunt down necessary components for
                 a project

         Id adore a resin necklace pendant with sweet peas and/or rose buds in it
         multistrands of beads in blues, browns, greens, turquoise, etc. (Im thinking that kind that all fasten
               together in the back, though long chunky strands to wrap around could be fun, too)
       something with a bird (especially bluebird, owl, or swallow pendant)
      Thanks to whoever is making me a necklace!  I'll keep this wish up, 'cause you can never have too many!chunky pendants (with kitsch picture of bird, or neat carved stone or wood (especially in flower shapes or
             circles)) I love the pendant here:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=81333.0

14. scrapbook ephemera in natural colors and textures for my mixed media journal (i.e. nature/fairytale type
           themes); I'd love some handmade or textured or patterned papers, stamps (esp. letter stamps), pressed
           flowers, skeleton leaves, cool stickers (i.e. frames, keys, birds, flowers, angels, fairytale themed), vellum,
           found items (i.e. fortune cookie fortunes, neat scraps of lace or something, postcards, Victorian
           Valentine's cards, etc.)

YAY!! round 2.

i'm in southern California

1. A tee or recon. I like ballet style tops, tank tops, tube tops, halters, and shirts with wide necks. i like long shirts since i  have a long upper body. I can give measurements if you need them, i wear a juniors M/L
-i love this style: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=57327.msg543969

2. a skirt. a like tiered skirts, pencil skirts and skirts with uneven hem lines (i think they are called assymetrical??). black or brown would be good. something simple tha i can wear with anything. i also like country-ish type skirts. like suede or suede-looking or just brown or tan.

3. a pencil skirt. i can give you measurements. any color, or design. i just really want one of these. i would love to have one to wear for holidays and special occasions.

4. hair accessories. headbands (knit, crochet, or fabric), hair clips, bobbypins, barrettes, or hair ties. my hair is so boring. not with anything too big on it since i wear a visor where i work. my hair has to be in a ponytail for work too so cute and/or funky hair ties would be great. i also use a lot of bobbypins since im growing out my bangs. 
-i like this headband (and got some from two swaps) but i just cant get enough, they are too cute: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=36027.0

5. FABRIC-any and all kinds. i really like: ribbed knit fabrics-all colors. Felt-all shapes and sizes and colors. courdory-tans, browns. Fleece-Yellow and black (i want to make my nephew a pickachu). retro, solid, mod, bright, stripes, polka dots, black & white.  anything over yard would be great but remnants are good too, i like everything,  i'm just getting into sewing so any fabrics would be great

6. i would love love love you FOREVER if i could get a cable hat.  i would preferabbly like it in black or gray.
-i like these ones:

7. a country shirt-be creative. my favorites are kenny chesney, brooks and dunn, and Brad paisley

8. knit or crochet supplies. Im just learning so any simple patterns, instructions, or how to kits would be awesome

9. knit legwarmers. i have a pattern that i picked up, but i don't know how to knit very well yet. i could send you the pattern, or if you have your own
-i like this one without the pom poms:

10. craft supplies/sewing notions-glue, stickers, glitter, paper, cutouts, fabric, zippers, lace, ribbon, yarn, buttons, odd and ends.
i'm also looking for clear microbeads.

11.bracelet charms-plastic, metal, any little knicknacks that can be turned into charms

12. Pants like these with either a dinosaur, or star or heart on them
-these are cute:

13. Something WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE themed. this is mine and my bf's favorite book. what i would really like are some matching tee shirts. or just iron-ons would be cool. Anything with this theme would be totally awesome!

14. HIS/HER or BOY/GIRL themed anything. my bf named his ipod boy and mine is girl. my friend got us key holders in the shape of a boy and girl,(http://www.alphabetsnyc.com/online-store/scstore/graphics/303.jpg) one for each of us. our phones (since they match) say his and hers on it. So anything to help add to our little theme like tee shirts (or iron ons) that say BOY and GIRL would be cool. or journals/notecards to write letters/notes to each other. we dont live together so something like hand towels wouldnt work (but the second we move in together i know what i'm gunna wish for  Wink) i'm sure you craftsters can think of something awesome!

15. home made stationary or a journal i would love either one of these. i use a lot of notebooks since im making a life-long list. and i would love stationary made just for me!

16. how to make stamps kit or if you could just send me a couple. i really want to learn how to make some. just letters and simple images.

17. how to embroider starter kit. i really want to learn how to do this too. i have some flosses and a few needles, but thats about it.

18. D.I.Y. tutorial craft book. a book filled with projects, tutorials, and ideas of different projects. can be print outs from websites, copies from books, anything! 

19. a lap blanket. My room is always cold because i don't have a heater. maybe in gray or pink. ooh, and i could use it to take to the movies, i'm always so cold, even with a sweater on.

20. pillowcases. i really like these fabrics: https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/28638123.JPG

21. a surprise!!! thanks!

about me: I'm 20 years old. i love pink. I love country music. i own a brand new 04 tundra, which im always looking for accessories to pretty it up some. i prefer silver to gold. I like dinosaurs, stars, pink, black, grey, earthy/creamy colors, Elvis, cowboys, TOY STORY-woody's my favorite, Nightmare before Christmas, Alice in wonderland, Pinocchio, and weird stuff. my style is very simple and casual. i wear dark colors mostly, but i love girly things too. I wear a M/L in junior sizes. I am tall (5'10") so my shirts are Never long enough to cover my stomach or back, i'd love you forever if i got a pretty casual tee i could wear that fits me nicely.

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box
