I know! I love her famous crow bag! Now my "manual laptop" (LOL) can look as smooth as its digital cousins! It'll be so pleased with itself! (I work in digital asset management but I still just like to write to stuff down...)

"about me"
i'm 27, a grad student and social worker, and i live in vancouver, canada.  colours i like are blues, greens (esp. limey or olivey), pink lately, turquoise, charcoal grey, light blue/brown and dark purple/olive green combos and generally brighter stuff. i rarely wear black.  im kind of a hippie and like nature themed images like deer, birds, trees, owls, flowers. i also like powerlines, typewriter letters, bmx bikes, airstream campers, and a-frame cabins.  i dig camping, road-tripping, photography, crafting... please pm me if you need prompting.

I pick -  k8kre8s

And i'll make her:

4. a hip belt like this (the zipper part is not essential): https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=47995.0

I'll be your bestest friend and love you forever if you can make me any of these:

1. Cloth pad like the one here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=18462.0;topicseen (It doesn't have to be that pattern or shape or anything... I just mean I want one that you can take the liner out and stuff :-)   )

2. Crotchet/knitted tampons.. haha! Like here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=82588.0 Even some sponge tampons would be neat...

3. I'd LOVE some felt stuff... Not the crafting felt.. but the fibers :-) So I can felt some soap! Hehe.

4. Sweater boots! These are soo cute! haha.

5. I'd love a pair of embellished flip flops :-) Size M (or 7-8)

6. A Hobo purse/bag like here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=35081.0

7. Mini duffle bag like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=7290.0

8. Actually, any purse/bag would be fine :-) I need a new purse. Hehe! Or a book bag of any sort..

9. There was this shirt on either abercrombie.com or ae.com... It had a big tree in the bottom corner of it (and it went all the way up) that had a few little jewels and stuff.. It also said something like "peace and love" in cursive near the tree... I was in love with this shirt! I would love something similar :-) Shirt size- Medium. Babydoll. It can be stenciled,screen printed, iron on.. anything!   

10. Stenciled shirt- suprise me! Size M. Any color. Any stencil :-) Cute.. funny.... anything! I <3 the shirts from davidandgoliath.com (The funny and the inapproperiate ones..) I also like abstract designs and stuff.

A bit about me- My name is Larissa, I'm in the US. I love the colors pink and purple. I also LOVE all bright/neon colors  Oh and black and white and grey.. hehe!  Browns not bad, either. :-) I love cordouroy :-) I like cutesy girly things... hearts, stars, flowers... lol! I also like checkered patterened things!

I've got your #9...a tree shirt. I'll PM you for details! This is my first wish...I'm in Ohio!

Okay, here goes...I'm sure I'll add more but here's a short list o get started...

1. Anything Wonder Woman related. I LOVE her! Something functional would be best so I have reason to show it off at work...we're this weird bunch that think we're the Justice League. Yeah, seriously...

2. That being said, something Batman for the boy. Again, something functional so he can show it off at work. We're so odd. He also just got a cubical too, so he'd be super psyched if it was something for the cube!

3. A wallet...funky fabrics...small enough to fit in my pocket if necessary. I'd love something pink and green to match my purse! I love the one I have, but my mom picked it out and it's kinda old lady fabrics...I could show you a pic of it, if necessary...a zipper for coins would be fab, but not necessary!

4. Something with an okapi on it. Something stencilled, a small stuffy...anything!!!(if you don't know what an okapi is, google it!)

5. paint me something. I want your art on my walls. You can PM me with colors and such, but in all honestly, the funkier, the better. ( i got this wish granted, but who can resist more art? I'm gonna put it up again anyhow!) I LOVE this guy( http://www.scottradke.com/Murals.htm ) and thanks to crafty_dame, I now love this guy's stuff too!  http://www.misterreusch.com/ More so the pin-up kinda stuff, but if you did a colorful cartoon-y painting of my cat, I would find that delightfully hysterical!

6. Something with a body positive image or saying on it. Again, something functional. Lately everyone I work with is on a diet kick and it' really weighing (no pun intended) on the little girls I work with. It's be nice for them all to see someone who is happy with themselves no matter the size.

7. A slide necklace. Something sarcastic and vintage-y or a stamp. OMG! A miss Piggy stamp would be great! (I could even send you one!)

8. http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=66500  I soooo love this! I would love you forever if you made me something like this!!!

9. I'm in love with the mixed paper journals I see around here!

10. A needle roll for my knitting needles. I recently received some new needles, and I don't want to lose all the ones I have! I finally have a use for a needle roll!!! (Any funky fabrics would be fantastic!!!)

11. Something to get me excited about my sewing machine. It could be fabrics, simple instructions, zippers...anything! I just got Betty (like Master Pain in Kung Pow!) for Christmas and I'm still a little nervous around him. I really would like to WANT to use him a little more.

12. A reconned T-shirt. Take notice of the recons on the curvaceous craftster board...I'm a big girl. I wear a 2xl, so nothing TOO fitted. However, shoulders out are FAB!

13. Jewelry...I'm always good for jewelry! PM me for specifics!

A little about me, I love polka dots and circles and stars and buttons(both 1" buttons and the kind yousew on!)! Pink and green is my fave color combo. I do like black too...and brown...just not blue or purple, really. I (obviously) like Wonder Woman, okapis, lots of other things...PM me for questions or craftster stalk me...you'll find tons of info because I talk way too much!!! Wink

This is all I can think of right now, but I'm SURE I'll come up with more, if need be!

I pick Craft_t_chic and will make her a wallet!

This is my second pick.  (i'm in portland, oregon)

My Wishes:

1......a clutch like this one:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24610.0 or this one by jasfitz: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=79785.0

2......an earring holder similar to this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=75714.0

3......a pendant like this with a cherry blossom/japanese theme: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=35012.0

4......a zip up hoodie with stenciled or embroidered designs of any of my likes listed below! (women's small, black, grey, or green)

5......a choker similar to this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72555.0  (doesn't have to be exact! just love the overall look)

6......an embellished cuff similar to this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69977.0 (no pastels or pink though)

7......a crocheted necklace like this: http://www.crochetme.com/Feb_Mar_2005/patt_lasso_necklace.html   THANKS k8kre8s!!

8......kanzashi flowers! either as pins, or little hair accessories like bobby pins!!

9......fingerless mitts with thumb gusset!  (i got a sweet striped pair from TheBon and now i'm addicted!)

10....a black scarf, sewn, knitted, crocheted, whatever!  if it had a little detail on it, of any of my below likes that would be an added bonus!

i am 30, married, no kids, an editorial photographer, and artsy nut.  i love all things homemade and all things with an indie, kitschy, underground vibe.  i'm not fond of pink, purple or pastels or anything too girlie or punk/goth.  lately i really like japanese art and crafts, and cherry blossom motifs.  also, birds, trees, typewriters, maps, and vintage designs.  I tend towards a minimalist style, i wear lots of black, and add color and sauciness (is that a word?) with accessories.  feel free to PM me with questions!
i<3 love
