I am in Chicago, IL, USA.

1. The Jayne hat (from firefly) pictured here: http://pics.livejournal.com/paperandglue/pic/000cc5h2  (my head is approximately 22 inches around)

2. A messanger type bag for my crafting materials. I've had a horrible time trying to find a way to carry all my stuff around that keeps all the little things separate. It would need places for needles, thread, maille rings, pliers, and a bigger section for fabric.

3. A hedgehog themed item, whether it be a scarf, hat, or stuffed animal.

About me: I'll be heading into my first year of college this fall at the University of Illinois, and it'll be my first time out of a big city for more than a month. I love people, cute animals, and bright colors/anything colorful, especially yellow, teal/turquoise, and dark red. I love chocolate, candy, and really all kinds of food (except bananas and bubblegum). I also love science fiction books and movies, and attend science fiction conventions several times a year. I'm a huge Kurt Vonnegut fan.

Thanks in advance to anyone who picks me!

I am in British Columbia, Canada. Grin [no, I don't have snow anymore] Thanks in advance to anyone who picks me! Cheesy

1. Plushies or sock monkeys! I love all the little plushies and sock monkeys I've been seeing lately and really want to start a collection - so start it for me? Grin

2. A needle felting starter kit. I'd LOVE to learn how to needle felt but I can't find any supplies for it near me. If you could send me some starter stuff I'd love you forever!

3. Souveniers/candy from your part of the world! I'm unable to travel at the moment but would love to get some souveniers/candy from wherever you are. thanks devilninny!

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.

I'm from New York, USA.

[1] Magazines (new or used) -- Thank you, nikkisixx666!

[2] Surprise package from another country filled with foreign goodies

[3] A bag inspired by this ...click here...

Personally, I hate chocolate but my mom loves it. So, if you pick me for the foreign goodies package maybe you could throw some chocolate in there for her. If you pick me for the bag... I like bright colors (bright orange, bright red, hot pink), blues, and greens. I don't like pastels, pink, purple, or yellow. I'm not a girly girl. I don't like flowers (unless they're roses) or big stripes. I like polkadots, hearts, and stars. I'm really not hard to please. If there are any questions about anything on my list feel free to PM me.

Thank you for looking at my list Smiley

All of this month's wishes were chosen because I'm going on vacation with my best friend in May--9th through the 19th!!! Woohoo!  I live several states away from her, and haven't seen her in a year and a half! We've never been on a roadtrip together, so as silly/crazy as it sounds, I'm flying up to see her and then we're going on a roadtrip. Cool  Grin

I am in the US (in SC).
Here is Apri'sl list: 

1   (The big wish first!) A tote or messenger bag to carry on the plane. I'm easy to please, I'd just like its strap to be long enough to go on my shoulder. Examples: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45985.0 https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49235.0 https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32204.0 
Many thanks to liebschien, for fulfilling my big wish!

2   Accessories: cuffs, necklaces, earrings, etc.  Some examples: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=23018.0 https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=46437.0 https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=25922.0

3   A travel/roadtrip surprise. Anything you think might be fun or just good to have on either leg of my trip--flight or roadtrip. Anything but a travel journal--got that covered.  Wink  (How about a craftster-ized pair of flip flops/thongs? Huh, huh? You know you want to. Cheesy)

A little about me: I'm usually casual--I like to 'dress up' jeans with nice tops & accessories.  I like and wear black, greens, and blues a lot.  I don't like gold, pastels, or floral patterns; I like yellow and orange in very small doses.  I like: coffee, turtles, monkeys, pirates/sailors, 80s cartoons, 50s style designs (housewife kitsch), stars, sparkly things, and skullys. I no longer have my friend's digital camera, so I wouldn't be able to take pics.  For anything else please stalk or PM me. Wink  Thank you in advance!

I'm in Oregon

#1 A nice diaper bag.  I'd love a brocade one, messenger bag style but totes are great too.   I love Amy Butler fabrics and things like http://www.joann.com/catalog.jhtml?CATID=82127&PRODID=111415 I like Indian fabrics as well

#2 I desperately need a shopping cart cover http://www.shoppingcartcoverstore.com/  I don't even care about fabrics, just a nice padded shopping cart cover **aquired elsewhere**

#3 A long nursing necklace http://seasonsoriginals.com/catalog.html?item=48&catid=7&ret=catalog.html%3Fcategory%3D7  Use your imagination!

I do like feminine things, hippie or boho is great too.  I don't like things that are crude or offensive.

My favorite colors are black and red for my own clothing.  I knit, sew a little, and crochet a little.

I'm Alison. I'm in Texas. Here are my wishes:

1. A newsboy cap in a dark and/or tweedy fabric. I tried crocheting one for myself, and it was a *disaster*. The only thing is, I seem to have a really large head and most commercial hats don't fit me (not knit hats, but, like fedoras and stuff), so if you're working from a pattern, you may have to tweak it. Just PM me for measurements.

2. A Scrabble tile necklace along the lines of this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=67264.0 . I'd like a letter A on the tile, please Smiley.

3. 16-inch circular knitting needles, size 7 or larger. If you started off with one set and then upgraded or something, I'd be happy to take your hand-me-downs Wink.Yay! Thank you so much, ultraviolet!

My favorite colors these days are hot pink, black, orange, brown, and green. I like pretty much anything vintage, particularly anything from the Twenties to the Fifties. My style is pretty casual, with rocker girl and boho tendencies. I guess that's all the relevant stuff I have to share.

Yay, Unconditional Swaps!

I'm in the USA (Jackson, MS)

my wishes are:

1- hand dyed and/or hand spun yarn

2- a cute checkbook holder that is also a wallet so I can have my checkbook, cash, and credit cards all in one place.  One with a window for my ID would be perfect!  Smiley

3- a suprise!     Thanks stellato_escuro!!!  Smiley

a little about me:
I'm 24.  I am a webdesigner that's in the process of switching over to teaching.  I love kitties and tiny dogs (chihuahuas, daschunds, pugs, etc).  I have 3 cats.. (no dogs tho'.. hubby says we don't have space   lol)  My crafting addictions are loom knitting, jewelry making, sewing, cooking, and embroidery.  My style is pretty eclectic.. one day i'm punk/rockabilly.. the next i'm scene-ish.. then i delve into a little bit of boho..  My fav. color combos are black or brown with pale colors.  I love olive/lime greens, turquise, fuchsia, & light pink.  As far as houseware type things go, my house is decorated in reds & yellows with blue and black accents.  I'm pretty easy to please.  Big huge thanks to anyone that chooses me!    I love getting suprises in the mail!

I am in Northern Minnesota!

1. My senior galery show is going to be altered books, so any book altering supplies would be great. To give you an idea of what I need; glitter, beads, little findings to glue on, stamps, etc. Paper goods are nice too, but I don't need those nearly as bad.

2. This is the big wish. Summer is coming, and I really want a new dress to go to farmers market in. Knee leangth, please. Smiley Here are some different ones I like:
Email me if you want to know my measures or more about fabric (no cartoons please).

3. Small lucky stars for my wedding. Our colors are blue, green white and silver, but any colors would be good. I want to scatter them on the tables, but  can only make so many at a shot. Here are two tutorials:

Thanks to my awesome future swap partners!
