Yay! I'm approved! Cheesy And I'm so glad to hear you're doing okay irid3sc3nt!!

My list, in no particular order....and don't take the links too seriously, they're just general examples for the most part Smiley

And a HUGE thank you in advance to anyone that chooses me!!!

knitted or crocheted fingerless wrist/forearm warmers..something like these maybe   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=23436.0

wrist cuff of some kind based on my likes, anything but duct tape would be awesome. I really like this one for an example of a knitted version.. http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=123372 or this http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=123520 minus the pop tabs, maybe ribbon or something else in there? Definitely don't have to be knitted or crocheted though. YAY! Thank you!!!

an owlie purse or plushie or pillow...really anything w/ an owlie, they are so cute! I love this  http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=97902  or whatever your version may be.

a handmade journal
something like this would be awesome  http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=29033 . I really like the ones where you can see the binding,  but I would love any kind. I also really like the style of this  http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=5637

mixed CDs w/ bagpipe music or celtic music

a cute camera cozy for my digital camera..something like this maybe https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=47786.0
with a soft fabric inside so the lens and display don't get scratched   

a tote w/ an across the shoulder strap, kind of a messenger bag style w/out the flap maybe...anything would be awesome really, I'd be beyond thrilled.

fabric! Any kind would be fantastic...so long as it's fairly easy to work with, I'll find a use for it somewhere for sure! I can't find ANY tattoo fabric around here and the selection of pre-quilted fabrics are pretty slim too so either of those would be great.

magnets based on any of my likes. Any kind would be awesome..bubble, bottle top, resin...however you like to make them...I love love love magnets! These are really cute http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=166079

some nifty pushpins like these http://www.etsy.com/view_item_sold_anon.php?listing_id=123117&transaction_id=35762

unique ashtrays...yes, I'm a smoker and I collect cool ashtrays, so some handmade or reconed ones would be so cool to have around my place.

artwork for the walls in my craft room. I just got my first place so the walls are in need of something creative and funky, especially in my craft room since that is my little domain all for me. lol

a cute little amigurumi

something embroidered, maybe some cute dish towels or even just a fabric piece that I could frame up for my walls

some kind of unique pincushion...a mushroom, or snail or something completely off the wall that you think up

any back issues of Sew News or Threads magazines

a cute glasses case

a measuring tape belt or wrist cuff  http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=77653

random lists of quotes, catchy phrases, poetry, etc

sewing notions of any kind...zippers, purse endlosures or handles, magnets, pins, etc...I would looove some different colored 6 strand embroidery floss

some funky office stuff for the desk at work...pen holders, magnets, artwork, etc

a beaded id badge/lanyard for my badge I have to wear at work. I love everything about this one  http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=119624

A surprise! I love surprises!!

I'm 24 and live in Illinois...surrounded by corn everywhere! lol I work in corporate America as a claims adjuster so I like to have fun and funky crafty things to come home to. I don't really have a specific style, just depends on my mood. I like mixing old and new things together to make something unique, I love anything vintage or vintage inspired. I love anything and everything fantasy related, especially dragons and fae. I also like skulls, pirates, anything sweet and innocent with a dark twist to it (think Evil Alice in Wonderland), vampires, old 50s style pinups, black and white art, butterflies, simple daisies, anthing coffee related, monkeys, leaves and a whole slew of other things. I pretty much adore anything that is unique/weird/out of the ordinary or extremely simple. My favorite colors are turquoise, teal or aqua, black, brown, all shades of green except neon, deep purples..I like jewel tones and earth tones a lot. Ummm....I think that's plenty about me...PM me if you need to know anything else. (and here I thought this would be the hardest part of the whole post. LoL)

And again, thank you, thank you, thank you! Smiley

Wish List

A Few Skeins of Noro kureyon color 88 or 51 for a Lady Elanor Stole I want to make. I have one skein each of those two colors. I love them both but I can't decide which one to use! Plus that stole is so pretty Smiley


Fabric Headbands! I have short hair so I dont really think that a wide head band would look good on my head. So nothing more than 2 wide please

Anything Angel related! Angels are sort of my thing. My Grandma nick-named me angel (even though if you asked my parents, they would say they dont know where the hell she got that from Roll Eyes )

Square fabric Boxes

Yarn I would love you forever it was handspun. Ive never worked with handspun yarn before. I prefer wool over anything but everything is fine.

Silverware bracelet

Something to keep my poor iPod video from harm. On like the first link would be great for when I work out Smiley

Handmade felted soap animal! OR a kit to do it myself!

Apron for me to wear so I wont get stuff on my clothes! I would like for the neck to be adjustable or tie-able also please. If is a full apron, could the top be like 11 or more bacsue I really hat it when an apron goes to one side because of my boobs. Stupid boobs. Also I like pockets Cheesy lotsa pockets

Reversible Ribbon Belts!

I am a highschool student in the US. I craft as much as I can cause it is the only thing keeping me going right now, besides the fact that I am graduating this year. I love angels, Japanese culture, marching band, stitch from Disneys lilo and stitch, fairies and mermaids. My room is verydisorganized so I need lots of help organizing my fabric, beads yarn and the loads of other stuff I collect. My fav colors are blue, pink, red, and grey.

Thank you for making my day and making my wishes come true Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley

I've picked someone to send to and been approved, so now I can post my list!


Fat Quarters of purple, yellow or gold - I'm planning to make a quilt for our bed and am collecting fabrics for it right now.  Small prints or patterns would be best but nothing creepy, I like pretty rather  Smiley


I would love a full apron (with a bib) - adult size large.  Any color but black or pink

Tote bag - big enough to hold some yarn and a pattern book.  No zipper.  The brighter and bolder the better  Smiley


A teapot picture with the teapot measuring about 3" x 3" and the aida cloth at least 6" x 6" so I can frame it to match the few others I have.

Any picture that features tulips, scarecrows or sunflowers


I'd love for someone to knit me a dishcloth or two.

Wooden Items

Something to stand on my display shelves, that's under 12" tall, and relating to tulips, scarecrows or sunflowers.


I collect miniature kitchen utensils so anything to add to this collection would be appreicated.

About me:  I'm from Alberta, Canada, and am a stay at home Mom of 2 teenage sons.  I love making crafts and swapping with people.  My favorite colors are dark green and dark blue.

about me:  I'm 25 from vancouver canada.  i teach ice skating and love anything to do with skating.  i also run a crafty birthday party program for children so i'm good with the kids crafts(more ideas would be helpful though, so i guess that can be added to the list).  my favorite colours are pink, blue, turquoise and lime green.  i love cats, cute japanese things, cupcakes, baking, old movies with people like cary grant and audrey hepburn, 80's movies with molly ringwald  and most things that are cute and happy.
