2.    I really need some recipe cards, about the size of 4x6 index cards.  I'd like if they were blanks, for writing the 
           recipes, but decorated (maybe with a pretty kitchen theme (my kitchen is pale pink, white, silver, and
           sage), or with a nature theme (i.e. bluebirds, fawns, owls, etc.))

3.   A knitted clapotis (in any shade, but esp. brown and blue)

8.   One of these adorable knitting needle books- its so cute! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=82733.60

9.   Id love some fabrics for patchwork quilts; all cottons, please; I really love reds, oranges, greens, turquoise, creams, yellows, purples, lavenders, blues, browns, just about any color but neon; feedsacks, prints from the 20s-50s, tiny dots or flowers, or anything that would be fun for a patchwork quilt

10.   Crafting magazines (like Bust)

11.   Origami paper would be fantastic! 

12.   A knitted hat or panta in brown or olive

17.   A pincushion!  Id love a cute pincushion

2.   Embroidery thread, hoops, and blanks (Id love a white pillowcase or tea towel)[/s Thank you to whomever is feeding my addiction!  I just got the most amazing embroidery kit, and I'm already hooked!

(i updated my wishlist!)

I'm in Portland, OR, USA


1. A bag like this one:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84722.0
I luuuuuuuuurve it, especially the birdy theme (and size! i have a lot of books).  Maybe in green?  I would love you forever!  Or a tote in the style of this one (Im not such a fan of the fabric): https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=83530.0
2. A circle skirt or a similarly non-tight knee-ish length skirt.  PM me for size/colors.
3. A flat-bottomed, zippered (maybe vinyl-lined for easy cleaning?) make-up bag.  The one I have now is cute, but I've had it since 7th grade.
4. A stenciled/silkscreened shirt or bag.  Things Ive been into lately: birds, cherry blossoms, cats, trees, the phrase cat party, muffins.  PM me if you need more ideas/sizes.
5.  A vinyl tote/large purse with some freestyle sewing-machine embroidery.
6. A belt.  Id like something that can go with lots of different colors (maybe a neutral-y blue or green and white?) and I wear my jeans low on my hips, so PM me for measurements!
7. A nice sturdy grocery tote or two like these: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=47761.0


1. Amirugami animal modeled after one of my pets (your pick of cats, dog, or hamster)
2. A headband like this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=74104.0
3. A knitted cloche hat.  Id love one in olive, cranberry, beige/brown, or a deep reddish orange.  Warm, earthy tones look best on me.  I also like this hat: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73290.0
4. A felted anything.  A felted bag would be neat.  Ooh, or felted beads!
5. A kittyville hat: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51433.0

Paper crafts:

1. A handmade journal of some sort.  One to keep track of swaps would be great!
2. Handmade stationery or notecards with envelopes.  I like the ones at the bottom of this page: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=87532.msg838418#msg838418
3. Paper stars for me to hang in my room like these ones: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=83862.0;topicseen

A DIY kit for any of the following:

1. making resin pendants
2. soapmaking
3. stenciling or screen-printing
4. kanzashi flowers
5. making stuffies!  (please no creepy eyes!)
6. knitting
7. clay beads
9. making paper
or surprise me with a cool DIY craft kit! I love learning how to make new things!


1. I love this crane necklace: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72997.msg686245;topicseen
2. Teeny little super guy glass: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=86122.0
3. A surprise!


Im just getting into journal making and I would love some neat paper!  Mostly text-weight or scrapbook paper no cardstock, unless its a really cool pattern.  I would also LOVE some pre-cut bookboard/chipboard if you have any laying around (weird, I know, but I dont have anywhere to buy it, much less something strong enough to cut it).  **If you choose me for this, PLEASE write do not bend on your package!!  My mailman likes to try and cram things into the mailbox**

About me: I'm a 19 year old working college student in Portland, Oregon.  Im studying to become a social worker.  I love nature and animals; I have 3 cats, a dog, a hamster, and some fish.  I don't like super flashy things (huge pink flowers.  no) and my favorite colors are green, red, and blue.  I love vintage stuff -- some of my favorite fabrics are 30s style prints.  I also like more modern patterns, like bold stripes and polka dots and there is a special place in my heart for super-cutesy cat prints.

Thank you!!

If you need measurements or more info for anything, just send me a PM.

Things That Would Make Me Love You For Eternity
1. Diamond Knit Dress - I saw this dress at Forever 21 and didn't have money with me, but an employee told me it was for sale online. As soon as I got home I went to buy it, but the color I wanted was sold out in my size. Send me a message if you want more details on the dress prior to committing to make it.

8. Yarn Thank you mystery person!

Made By You
1. Mixed Media Art
2. Headbands around 2 wide. not knitted or crocheted. fun patterns and colors. stretchy is preferred, but tied is fine. no green, yellow, or brown.

You'd be my favorite person in the world if you found them and sent them to me. Any flavor will do, but I liked the ones with the chocolate filling the best.

About Me:  My name is Jade. Im sixteen. I was born in my favorite place, New York City, but now live in Connecticut. I like every color except green and brown.

yay! I'm james, 29 and live near allentown, PA. my life consists of embroidering and Xstitching my own patterns (I love doing cartoon characters), making felt dolls, and working on my DIY interior decorating book. I love elvis costello, bob saget, kids shows on disney channel (that's so raven!!!), collecting polar bears, [adult swim], harry potter, collecting clip art and art supplies, dogs (I have a little mixed terrier named bruce wayne for his strangely huge bat ears), and bunches of other stuff. thanks in advance to anyone who wants to make me very very happy!

-14 or 18ct aida cloth - black, or any other color (but not white or cream)
-punch embroidery needle threaders, and cameo replacement needles for my puncher (size small). I haven't been able to find these in any store and hate ordering them online 'cause they're tiny and just a couple bucks.
-faber-castell pitt black ink pens (the set of 4)
-9x12 or 11x14 vellum bristol board
-a kooh-i-noor rapidograph mechanical pencil size 0.7. I lost mine ages ago and have not been the same since!
-iron on photo transfers for my comp, the kind for dark colors
-colored sharpies! any color, they are so awesome
-and hell, while you're at it, how about an entire set of coptic markers (72 pens, set A)! I mean, they're only $270 at dick blick! Tongue

-a polar bear amigurumi
-gaz and dib felt dolls (from invader zim). they're on my to-craft list, but near the bottom so I don't know if I'll ever get to them!
-anything (tote, shirt (womens XL or mens L), pillow, anything!) with zombies, elvis costello, bob saget, or harry potter (I'm a slytherin and love snape, draco and lucius)!
-lightweight armwarmers with thumbholes in black or aqua. I am always cold and had a great pair to wear while typing but I lost them.
-some kind of little protective pouch for my cell phone, which is 2" wide, 4.5" long, and 3/4" deep - a clunker, I know
-anything bath-and-body, vanilla scent
-knit wide headbands thank you whoever you are!
-wrist pincushion, maybe some kind of cute food or animal shape
-and kind of cool case to hold my cigarettes and lighter (I know, I know, no lectures!)

-burned cds,as I am broke and also had some cds swiped!: any camera obscura, swiss dot, cat's miaow, rainer maria, mr airplane man; slumber party (any other than the s/t), softies - holiday in rhode island, any mary timony (other than mountains), tori amos - scarlett's walk (thanks taloola, and the bonus cd is great!), elvis costello - trust, armed forces, and spike (also scratched to hell from overplay!) , david cross and mitch hedburg comedy cds
-san-x stationery (I love little notepads, pen & pencil sets, erasers, any kind of mini office supply)
-software - totally legal, not in any way illegally burned copies Wink (for Mac) of: mac osx panther OR tiger, adobe photoshop 7 (boo hoo, I still only have 5), adobe illustrator 10, quark Xpress 6 (I have 4.04), suitcase (anything above 3.0 - yes, I haven't updated mine for 10 years!). my programs are pretty outdated, sine most of them I oh-so-legally 'obtained' them from the school computer lab years ago!

thanks, you will make my day! and I will swap back often!
