Swap name: The 2006 Wishlist May Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Ember77
Sign-up date range: The end of May! 05/31/06
Date to send item by: Must send out item within 2 weeks of picking a partner
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No WAY!!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Of course!
All ages allowed? Or 18+?  Yes, just make sure its ok with the parental units!
Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders" list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

This is really different from the unconditional swap, so PLEASE READ ALL THE DETAILS BEFORE YOU JOIN!
This is a wishlist swap;  post a list and you may receive it! Smiley Your list will need to consist of where you are from (it's okay to just put your state and/or country), crafted items that you would like (it helps greatly to include links to photographs, tutorials, etc.) and/or crafting supplies.

FIRST: You will look through the lists of the people who have already posted.  You will THEN pick someone from there to craft for.

SECOND: As soon as you have messaged me, the organizer, telling me who you would like to craft for I will tell you that you can post a list.

- to be able to post a list you have to craft for at least ONE person
- there must be AT LEAST 5 items on your list
- you can be picked as many times as you have items on your list
- if you have been picked 3 times, you have to pick one other person to craft for, then you can be picked more..

Person B wants to have their list posted so they PM the organizer with their questionnaire answers, and what they want to craft from Person As list.  The organizer will then PM person B, give them person As address, then they can then post their list.

Person C wants to have a list up, so they choose from A OR B, PM the organizer their answers, the name of the person they want to craft for, and what theyre going to craft.   Then they wait until the organizer sends them the address of whom they have picked.  Then they can post their list.

Say person A has been chosen 3 times. For them to be picked more, they have to pick one more person to craft for.  The organizer (me) will let you know when you need to pick someone else if you want to receive more items.

This is different than the unconditional swap!!!
The unconditional swap is not expecting anything in return for what you have made. A lot of people post their lists without even making anything for someone, so to be able to post your list (and receive) you must craft for at least ONE person!

Each month, this starts over again! Unless you were never picked in the previous month, you must pick someone to craft for in order to post your list for the the new month.

Wish List

Everyone! My graduation is June 9 and I just realized I don't have any invitations! I moved right after I was supposed to order graduation stuff and I was only able to get my gown and that was just barely! I would absolutely be in your debt foreva if you made me some! I don't really need that many, and they don't have to be really fancy or anything. Just Pm me and I will give you all the info I need on them. Thank you so so so so much flrtingwdisaster!


Something aisha from neopets related

DIY embroidary kit

Pretty fabric!

DIY Soapmaking kit



knitting needles ~ DIY or store brought, straights(not long though please), circs or DPN! I am low in my stock and I would love to get some more Smiley

Blanket ~ I am making one mayself but you can make me one too Cheesy after all, you can never have enough blankets!

Also, on that note Pillowcases! I don't think I have any! Please make me some fun ones Smiley

japanese toy sewing craft books or DIY stuffie/toy kit

Doll! Someone to talk to and be my friend Smiley These are some of the types/ones I likeonly I would like mine with darker toned skin like mine Smiley And dark chin lenght hair

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
Thanks so much! I can't wait to get them Cheesy

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 And I love the lobster one


Messanger bag/purse/hipslinger

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

Apron for me to wear so I wont get stuff on my clothes while I am crafting! I always wipe stuff of on my pants so an apron would be wonderful. 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 OR a DIY kit! I have a little bit of sewing skills so with a little directions, I think I might beable to tackle it

Reversible Ribbon Belts or a DIY kit Smiley

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 very disorganized so I need lots of help organizing my fabric, beads yarn and the loads of other stuff I collect. I love all colors but my absolute favs are blue, grey/silver, pink, and red.

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