i think EVERYBODY gets confused and messes up their first swap.  i certainly did!  i got seriously confused between the ongoing wish swap, the unconditional swap, and the wishlist swap and ended up posting my list in the wrong place, picking someone and then PM-ing the wrong organizer about my pick!  hah.  but now i just sit here obsessively and click refresh Smiley

I claim Kristen81 for "Any soap or body product scented with Nag Champa." This is my first wish I've granted.

Wishes...I wish I was great at making everything I want to make. I wish I always had any craft supply I could ever think of wanting. In the meantime, while waiting for those wishes to come true, I'll leave the following wishes up to the fairy craftsters.

1. A pair of earrings (or however many pairs you care to make me).
I have one pair of earrings. I made them. Making them was very frustrating. Everything went wrong and I decided I am not cut out to make earrings. However, I would like more pairs. When I look at them in the store I think, "I could make those..." but I never do.
Inspiration: http://liebschien.zoto.com/img/original/94a1d72137037c3c53097d175a20a333.jpg
I like the shapes and colors of these. Exact replicas are not expected.

2. A decorated box with or without a lid (I probably won't use the lid).
I have a couple of beauty products in my bedroom because I use them before I go to bed or while I'm watching TV or whatever. These include moisturizers, pumice stone, nail clippers, etc. I would like a decorative box no bigger than a shoebox to house all these products so they aren't just laying there on the shelf. Heck, a shoebox would be fine. I don't care what materials are used to decorate it.

3. Larger-than-average pencil holder.
This pencil holder will be used in my classroom. My class is the computer lab and I collect tons of pens and pencils students leave behind. Then they come back with more and leave those, too. My desk drawer is overflowing. It would be very cool if it were computer-themed, but not necessary. It just needs to be twice as wide as a coffee mug because I have enough pens and pencils to fill at least two coffee mugs - maybe more.

4. A bangly earthy or oceany bracelet (6" circumference).
By earthy or oceany I mean using earth tones or ocean/beach colors, using some natural materials, or looking organic like it came from the earth or the ocean. By bangly I mean things that bang against each other and dangle. Bang + dangle = bangle? Insect or seacreature charms on it would be pretty cool, too.
Here are a few examples of items I like:

5. Cleaves Shrug on Knitty: http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTcleaves.html
I love the style of this shrug and how soft and cozy it looks. I like the color in the photo a lot, but color is irrelevant as long as it isn't a bright primary color or a day-glow color.

6. Hairsticks.
I like the terra cotta ones on this page a lot:
But I will stick anything in my hair as long as it is smooth to the touch and as lengthy as a crochet hook or a pencil. I am tired of using crochet hooks and pencils in my hair.

7. Dog treat container.
If I had tons of money to throw around, I would by this treat jar:
But I can't justify spending fifty bucks on a jar that holds dog food. However, I need something because my dog gets impatient when I am trying to undo the knot in the rubberband I accidentally made the last time I closed his bag of dog treats. He is starting to hang out with my mom more than me. She just throws chunks of cheese and steak right on the floor. It's hard for me to compete with instant gratifaction like that. I would like it decorated with a dog theme of some sort and, other than that, the only request I have is that the container can be easily opened and closed using only one hand.

8. Ribbon dog collar.
Example: http://www.luvofdog.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=198&category_id=6&option=com_phpshop&Itemid=40
(I notice in the example there is ribbon on the inside of the collar, too. That seems silly to me.)
My dog has a tiny neck - about 8" - 9" circumference. He's a boy so any ribbon that's not too girly would make him very happy. He was just neutered a few weeks ago so he'd rather not be forced to wear anything that emasculates him further. He doesnt' have a collar right now. Well, honestly, he's never had a collar. He's old enough to accept the responsibility now.

9. I LOVE this hoody: http://cache.wists.com/thumbnails/e/41/e410b2110c840a22e6f8d541ecb1089c
I would love something like this as either a T-shirt or a hoody. What I love about it is the size of the image and the placement, the subject matter (sealife), and the artistic ability. I would wear this or something similar in any colors, but I would prefer a sky blue, aqua or teal shirt with the image being warmer colors such as rust, browns, oranges and yellows. Small usually fits me best, but sometimes I get mediums.

10. A 2-yr pocket calendar.
They look like this:
And Michael's usually has them for a dollar. There is no Michael's in my town. My Wal-mart doesn't have them either. If you decorated the cover I'd probably pee myself with happiness.

11. Anything from my Wists list: http://www.wists.com/Liebschien
It's pretty much mostly stuff I have on this list, though.

Colorwise, I prefer shades, tones, and hues. I don't much care for bright primary colors or day-glow colors. My preferred colors are browns, black, greens (olive, army, moss, avocado), baby or sky blue, subtle pinks. Themes are not necessary, but here are some ideas just in case: insects (especially dragonflies, butterflies or beetles), nature, birds, trees, leaves, water, the orient, writing, crafting, art, candy and other sweets, fruit, beach and sealife, computers, coffee, traveling, or anything I wouldn't be embarrassed to show my mom.

I'm 32 and I'm the computer lab manager at the local high school. At the moment, my life consists of computers, crafting, my dog, and not much else. I play video games and look at crafting stuff on my computer all the time. I take my dog for walks and torture him with grooming processes. I crochet, sew, make soap, play with beads and clay, knit remedially, and dabble in other crafts whenever necessary and when I can find supplies.  I live in such a rural part of Florida that it's hard to find the proper materials for a lot of the things I'd like to make (most of which are listed above). I'm basically at Wal-Mart's mercy unless I want to take a long drive into "the city." I do order things online, but I don't like waiting for them to arrive so I do this only when I'm beyond desperate.

When I do get out, I like to go hiking, camping, bike riding, kayaking, visit festivals, read on the beach, and just generally be outdoors and active. My style reflects these activities. I wear t-shirts and pants or cargo shorts (the shorts go on when I get home from work) most everyday with my Teva's or my hiking boots, depending on the weather. But at work I dress up by adding a turtlneck sweater over my t-shirt because they keep it pretty cold there. I would like to dress up even more by adding jewelry to my wardwrobe.

I realize I'm pretty new to the craftster swapping scene so I got a little wordy in order to give people some greater information about me.

I claim Liebschein for jewelry!

Here's my list, I'm in  Minnesota, where I feel strangely compelled to report on the weather with each list...what the heck...it's a little chilly...

Glamour Cuffs: https://sslrelay.com/www.s109799752.oneandoneshop.co.uk/sess/utn1543d7ae628fe80/shopdata/index.shopscript

Or any knit arm warmers with thumb gusset

A kimono fabric hobo bag like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=56519.0 (I am in LOVE with the indigo/orange one!)

Or the necktie schoolbag https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45985.0;topicseen

Some kind of jewelry roll/organizer thingie for traveling, that will keep my bling from getting tangled!

This is a long shot...but I love it and I'd have no idea how to begin to make one...pmc crane necklace: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72997.msg686245;topicseen

A how-to kit for one of the crafts I want to learn: bookbinding, pmc, resin , microscope slide necklaces (I have a soldering iron but nothing else...and I'm not sure how to use it!   )

A wristcuff with a bird and/or blossoming branch that says 9.1 on it

I'm loving all the fancy cabled stuff lately...the owl cables, Bobolink's tree, etc. So, something, anything with "picture" cables! Especially a big satc clutch with dowels, but really, anything!

Day of the Dead shrine or figure of a librarian. It would be extra sweet if she was working with slides or art books! OR a happy looking Day of the Dead dog or cat! OR a hanging DOTD butterfly or bird!

A big modern/funky felted stuffy monster guy like Mr. Pretty https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=86035.0;topicseen something a single adult who doesn't collect stuffies but secretly loves them could pass off as "modern decor" and put on the couch like a pillow -LOL. I love Mr. Pretty!

xrays! Several years ago I made a cool lightbox out of an xray of a cat that I found. Later it turned out to be my neighbor's cat, Harold, who died. Of course I gave him the lamp, but I've wanted more xrays ever since! My Drs always refuse to give me mine (not that I get xrayed that much, LOL) Anyone have any unwanted xrays laying around? Human or not, anything interesting will do! Thanks Kinkyknit!!

Kanzashi flowers! I received some from Sea of Stars and now I'm HOOKED! I'm Koo-koo for kanzashi!

Fleuri bag https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=29772.0;topicseen

Bloomers! Yeah...resistance is futile....

A wrap skirt! In a 50's inspired, Asian or Amy Butler/Alexander Henry-ish fabric. PM me for more info! Or anchors! My inspiration is, well, everything on madewithlovebyhanna h.com! That girl is a genius!

A fun, retro apron (a full one with the top bit, not the half/skirt kind) ruffles & pockets would ROCK! Thanks Homerof2!!

Knitty's Nautie! http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTnautie.html coiled, in pretty colors. I love nautie!! I've been obssessed with chambered nautilus since I was a kid!

Felted camellia! with or without bag! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=92340.0;topicseen I love this bag, the colors, the flower, everything about this post is pure joy!

An Amy Butler bag:  it's my aspiration to be able to sew them one day

Summery Noni style felted bag and/or flowers! http://www.pureknits.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=66_85 I just love all of this stuff!!

Some kind of crafty surprise! You can get ideas from my posts or my "wists"!

I've been really into bird stuff lately, especially swallows. AND I've been really into tree/blossoming branch/cherry blossom images So... something with a bird/swallow/tattoo swallow/bird with cherry blossoms/blossoming branch motif? Hmmm....

I'd also love a bag made with the Laurie Smith fabrics at Hancock! I love them all! A springy purse...lovely!

I ordered an Owlie bag from Sea of Stars but she's been sick and had some stuff going on and had to cancel the order. If anyone knows how to make something like that, I'd love an Owlie bag. I hope SoS feels better very soon! 

A collage librarian tshirt like Bigmouth made in the Librarian swap, or a Nancy drew tote bag from the same swap!

I am interested! I don't know how to do lining either, though! Will it work unlined? If so then, yes, I'd love it!  Smiley

probably. it's felted pretty thick. but i'll send the brocade anyway. either you can find someone else to line it, or use it for something else. Smiley  the handles i attached with strips of the brocade stitched (badly) to the bag. you can cut the thread, and re-do it if you want (i did that once). but it's dark charcoal and white with clear handles.  Smiley

ok, so, claiming batgirl for a felted noni bag. Smiley  2nd wish this round.

- handspun yarn. Smiley

- tote bag

- jasfitz style tote or wallet.

- DIY microscope slide pendant kit (i can buy the soldering iron, by the way).

- handpainted/handmade tea cup or coffee mug (i love tea!).

- fork bracelet (with swirled tines, those look so cool to me), spoon ring (size 4.5.. small fingers!).

- cookie-ish/cakey scented lotion/bubble bath/soap/candles/etc. (think tutti dolci from bath and body works.)

- anything from my wists!

about me:
my name is Tasha and i'm going to be 22 this tuesday (may 9th). i'm living in Wilmington, NC (huge dawson's creek fan, we just moved here a couple of weeks ago). i have one cat, his name is Kai and he has feline leaukemia, but so far, he's doing well. i like light blues, reds, black, and springy green. not neons/pink/yellow/orange. i knit, and soon, i hope to get a sewing machine so i can start sewing. Smiley
