Hey, everyone!  The Friends of Craftster swap is winding down, and I'm ready to choose somebody's wish!  I'm in Ohio.  Here are things I could really use right now:

1.  Necklaces.  Right now, I could especially something with a mostly black, silver, and/or clear color scheme.  But I love colors, too--so don't let that last comment stop ya!

2.  Pins.  Sensing a jewelry theme here?  Something fun.  I like to try to achieve a slightly funkier look by dressing up my teachin' cardigans and sensible shoes with some accessories that have personality.  thank you, veludo! Smiley

3.  Fun hair things.  My hair is fine, and longer(as of yesterday)  just shorter than shoulder length.  I just figured out how to use hairsticks, thanks to Craftster instructions, but I've used only Bic pens so far!  Cheesy  (If you go for hairsticks, I'd prefer short ones.  I'm afraid of stabbing children's eyes out.)  I frequently have a very fashionable (HA!) sweaty ponytail.  I like barrettes, but the really big spring clips don't stay in my hair.  Smaller ones are great.  Fun bobby pins are great.  I just need a few more options beyond my 1989 scrunchies!

About me:  I love retro ('70s and earlier) designs.  I love reused/recycled materials, and when unexpected materials are used to make things (I love bags made from things that were never meant to be bags, for example).  If you like to make coordinating bracelets, be warned that my wrists are small (6" bracelets are about right).  I've got nothing pierced.  I'm vegetarian, and I'm not a fan of leather.  I don't have any hated colors.  Not a single one.  I even like "ugly" colors and combinations.   (Edited to tell you about my hair.  Cheesy)

Hey! I am in melbourne, Australia.

Wish 1. A new bag big enough for school, (not too out there -it is for school!) with ~pirates~ vampires, cowboys, retro 70's, or any other fun pictures or prints.  i like shoulder/messengeer bags, or some fun designs.
maybe something like this?

wish 2 some local music. i love to hear something new sometimes, so i would love some cd's, stickers, badges or buttons of bands from around your area. (if your in a band feel free to use this for some good 'old subliminal promotion!   Wink ) i am into every single type of music, (lottsa indie & hiphop & rainwright/cash type folk)  exept death metal (for some reason it sometimes gives me fits, but stuff like guns'n'roses or motley crue are ok!)
thanks redheadedali, i cant wait!!  Grin Grin Grin

wish 3 i would like a dark navy blue scarf (like a thick felt or a tightly knit kind-not fluffy, feathery, or baubley ) for school too, cos its starting to get unbearubly cold here, and it would be nice to have some matching mittens, but its ok if you choose not to include them, and id like it very much if the scarf/mittens were embriodered!

I love pirates, and 1970's retro or pyscadelic things
 and i like my little pony, care bears vampires (not too gothy though), cowboys, unicorns, music, esp the clash, the ramones, jenny lewis, johnny cash, deerhoof, the rolling stones. i am 15 years old, fashion (i would be greatful if any one has any old magazines like bust or anything like that they dont want, feel free to include them [we only really have scrapbooking mags here]) sport and science, especially medical stuff & textbooks from the 1970s and earlier, i luv johnny depp (especially in pirates of the carribean), i als o llike web comics like Questionable content, no 4th wall, megatokyo, the sorid affairs, and pretty much anything from dayfree press.

Hey!  I'm in Florida! Here are my wishes:

1. decorated or stenciled t-shirts or tank tops or casual shirts.  I want something kinda nice, that I won't feel like a slob wearing.  I'm a women's large medium, so if they are cut small I'll need a large.  Or you can PM for measurements.

2. something felted.  Either needle or wet felt.  Anything creative.  I love the elephant here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=89145.from0#new
And I love all this felted stuff: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=15115

3. Bandannas -- I'm going to South America soon to follow monkeys around in the forest, and I need bandannas to put my hair back.  anything decorated or sewn from scrap cloth or anything I can use in a do-rag manner would be great.  Just don't send anything you'll be too sad about it getting really really dirty.  thanks, Drea4545!!!!

About me: I'm 29, I'm an anthropology grad student who studies monkeys.  I love sparkly and shiny things, bright colors, animals, and retro-kitschy things from when I was a child (Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony).  I am a vegetarian and do not wear leather, also my ears are not pierced, so no earrings! I'm pretty easy to please -- anything unique or fun is good by me.

(oops, forgot to add, I'm located in Illinois, USA).

hi!  I was going to try and stay away from more swaps... but this one is SO addictive...

1. May I have a new purse?  I love big purses; theme ideas in my Wist list.

2. May I have a new tote bag?  I like them ridiculously large - I carry a big 3-ring binder for my writing, and I usually add a book to read, breakfast/lunch for at work, etc.  Theme ideas in my Wist list.

3. May I have a mini journal?  I adore the ones that lasandri makes.  About 3x5 inches is great, with a sturdy cover (hardback, leather or leather-like, whatever!).  Elegant color schemes and medieval or Victorian motifs are especially appreciated.

I got lasandri!!  WOOHOO!!  I can't wait - thank you!

About me:  I'm 28.  I'm single.  I'm all sizzle and no steak.  I talk a good game.  I'm really smart.  I'm nerdy, but not in a good way.  I'm really tired, so I'm going to bed before I get too silly here.

Hey there.  I'm currently in Washington, DC... but in less than a week I will be living in Atlanta, GA!!!
Many thanks to anyone who picks me.

Wish #1: A housewarming surprise.  We just bought a house and I am soooooo excited.  I'd love something for my new home.   Thanks artxinxlies!!!!!!

Wish #2: Knitted or crocheted slippers.  The house has hardwood floors and my feet are always cold.  My ratty sweat socks just aren't going to cut it anymore.  I'm a size 7 - 7 1/2 U.S.

Wish #3: A funky sock monkey for my husband.  He collects sock monkeys.  He recently bought me a fabulous sewing machine.  He actually encourages me to buy more fabric... whatta guy!  I'd love for him to get this surprise.

About me: I'm a 34-year-old psychologist, business owner/executive, and mom.  I've lived in urban environments for the past 15 years, and now I am moving to a new city, and to the (eep!) 'burbs.  I like things that are classic with a twist.  I love retro fabrics with bold geometric designs.  I love Asian prints.  I like Art Deco.  I like Modern Art.  I'm a collector of art from the masters as well as new/young artists.  Frank Lloyd Wright was a genius, IMO.  I haven't found a color that I don't like- OK, maybe I'm not too fond of gray.  My favorite color is blue - the blue of the Caribbean is nice, or of the sky on a cloudless day.  You can check out my WISTS to get a feel for my style, or PM me with any questions.
