Swap name: Birthday Month Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: hertrigger (organizers change every month)
Sign-up date range: 5/1/06-5/31/06
Date to send item by: 2 weeks after you claim someone
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes!
All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages!
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:  This swap was organized so everyone can get something crafty for their birthday!  Please read the guidelines carefully.

  • If your birthday is in May, then you can post your wishlist for this month. To do that, you must first PM me with the Swap questionnaire filled out.
  • Once I PM you and let you know you have been approved, you may post your list of things that you would want to receive.  The more you think of, the better.   The last wish you will post is "a surprise."  Then you will post a bio about yourself, including where you are from and what your birthday is. 
    Please post lists only.  No discussion on this thread please
  • Everyone will then go through the lists and choose a craftster they want to send a birthday gift to.  Your birthday does not have to be in April for you to craft for someone.  If you want to choose someone, just PM me with your info (including your address, please), who you want to craft for, and what item, and I will send you their address.
  • If you chose to craft for someone, you have 2 weeks to get the item out the door.  If two weeks pass, and I don't hear anything from youyou guessed it, negative feedback!
  • Each person can be chosen unlimited times!  HERE'S THE CATCH- if you get chosen, you must send the person who crafted for you a thank you note in the mail.  You will get negative feedback if you do not send a thank you note (it can be a postcard even).  I think this is a fair trade for all the crafty goodness you'll be getting!
  • It is super important for everyone to keep good communication.  When you send, let me know, and of course, don't forget the DC#.  When you receive, let me know and publically announce in the gallery (even if you don't have pictures).  Also, let me know when you send off your thank you note (no DC# required, you're on your honor!).
  • You can choose to craft for as many people as you like, but you cannot "owe" more than 3 things.  If you are a newbie and this is your first swap, you must successfully send once before choosing again.

Original idea thread and discussion located here
If you have any more questions or suggestions, you can post on the link above, or send me a PM with "Birthday Swap March" in the subject line.

If you want to POST A LIST (YOUR BDAY IS IN MAY), information to send to organizer:

Name of swap- BIRTHDAY MONTH SWAP- May
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name

Hello all! Im Jodi and I will be turning 22 on May 2nd (today!). I recently officially moved from New York City to a smallish town in Massachusetts. Its funny- when I was younger, birthdays were exciting, as they meant I would be more mature. Now it just seems Im getting older! Anyway, Im still excited to be 22 on the 2, and I would be very grateful to anyone who would care to send me a gift.

My wish list:

   One of the curly Nauties from Knitty- this is really my ultimate birthday wish from you Craftsters! (http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTnautie.html) Thank you so much cinderly!!
   A Kiwa Hirsuta plush (http://www.mediatinker.com/blog/archives/009547.html), my second biggest Craftster wish.
   Art prints for the walls of my new apartment- Screenprints, Intaglio, Gocco, whatever youve got!
   A felted something
   A wooden bird
   Squirrel or chipmunk items (fabric pins, pouches, tote bags, ipod cases, anything). Deer and birds are also lovely.
   Tree-themed crafts
   Tooth or wisdom-tooth crafts (not really cartoony though, I like realistic teeth and Im getting a tattoo of one soon!)
   A nice door stop (Im currently using a glass soda bottle full of sushi rice)
   Fun dishtowels/ potholders/ other kitchen items
   A day of the dead sugar skull
   An amigurumi doll
   A chicken necklace like this one (http://www.etsy.com/view_item_sold_anon.php?listing_id=147196&transaction_id=50458)
   A leather bird necklace like this one (http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=91449)
   A silver nest necklace like this one (http://www.lindseyandray.com/ygd_necklaces2), scroll down to Home Sweet Home....can you tell I have a slight obsession with bird-themed accessories?
   Anything from my Wists: http://www.wists.com/streifenhornchen , especially the bags.
   A surprise! thank you, kiki_eks!

My style is pretty relaxed- I love cool vintage patterns, but nothing really bright or shocking. Thank you so much to everyone participating.

Happy Birthday to all of my fellow May babies!

oh! I'm so excited to post my birthday wishes!  for my birthday, i wish for things i cannot make myself. i see all these great things and i am envious! these are the things that craftsters can make, but i cannot. i covet them!

this hebrides hat https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50165.0 or those colors. i can't tell if i love the colors most or the pattern most. i think i love both.

a kanzashi or two. mine just come out sub par. i've given up. oh gosh, made with silky silk or silky polyester. purr.

a pyramid coin purse like gazicat made. it's just so nice. sigh.https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69033.0

homemade soap- i tried soap once (grated ivory and yellow colored water) it was a bad scene. something with lavender and chamomile. mmmm!

a #2 for my apartment. I like to put a weird and wacky #2 out on my door just to get up my neighbors nose. it's my way of sticking it to the man.

some recepie cards. stamped or paper artsy or something like that. i love the look of most scrapbooking, but i haven't got the patience.

I would love a birthday surprise! something you dig making, or something reflective of what birthday cheer is for you.

lemme see, i am turning 31 on may 24. 31. what an nondescript birthday. ho-hum. lets see, i'm a sport-o, and i like to watch sports too.  I like rock and roll.  if it's got a good rhythm and good quality vocals with good quality lyrics, then it's for me. i like to travel, and i'm a bit nosy. so when i do, i like to pretend i live there. a craft relevant to your neighborhood would be right up my alley. I'm not preppy, nor punk, i am a true tee-shirt and jeans girl. I dig flowers and colors (bright but not neon) and patterns like stripes or swirls. i like cartoonish stuff, but not cartoons like catdog. i guess it's illustrations i like.

thank you so much if you decide to pick me!

Hello everyone!
I'll be turning 30 soon (May 9) and I need to celebrate this occasion with style! I started feeling like I was getting old when I got past 20, so normally I don't like to celebrate my next candle on the cake.. But 30 deserves better  Grin
I live in Milan, Italy.

Here is my birthday wishlist:

- pretty yarn! Any yarn really.. I'm determined to learn how to knit

- a fun stuffie to make me smile on dull days, like those that can be seen on japanese craft books or here on craftster.
Some examples of stuff that I've liked: toilet stuffie, cutest kitty stuffie ever, owl stuffie, cute monster (with tutorial), these guys, ravioli plushie)

- I'd love you forever if you could make me an amigurumi! I expecially love the kitty (amineko) and the bunny.
These are pretty cool too, expecially yoda!

- now that I think about it, I'd love something related to yoda.. a stenciled or silk-screened t-shirt (PM me for size) or tote, a keyring, a stuffie...... whatever

- knit socks! I really love funky, colorful socks.

- a learn to felt kit (wet or needle felting)

- some homemade soap or bath bombs

- a purse-making book or a cool purse pattern, if you're not using it anymore! I'd love a quilting book or a japanese craft book, or a recipe book. Or, a knitting book.

- a knit ipod nano sweater.. so cool!

- a 2 or 3 fold wallet with a pocket to hold coins if possible

- something made out of tyvek (wallet, pencil case, ...)

- cute hair pins / hair clips.. I have long brown hair.
Here are some ideas: felted lollipop hairclips , kanzashi flower , felted hair pins , more pretty pins

- a surprise package from your city/country.. if you're in the US please put some beef jerky!  Kiss

- a surprise! Check out my wists or PM me to find out about my likes/dislikes  Grin Thank you for the yoga themed surprised, Koi! Grazie!

- another surprise  Wink

About me: I live in Milano, Italy. After a long interruption I finally managed to get my maths degree (yeah!). I am a geek in many ways, I like math, science, technology and some sci-fi. I also love traditional stuff, homemade food, cooking, sewing, and I have a thing for the Amish! I have a darling boyfriend and we have 2 black kitties. I love reading and watching movies, expecially in english. I am studying to be a translator (english --> italian) , I love languages! I have lived in the US and in Denmark. I am not very sporty, though I like tennis and yoga. I have put on some weight lately and desperately need to lose it.. so don't send chocolate!!!! At least not too much, ok  Tongue I am into natural foods, though I am not a vegetarian (I have been vegetarian/macrobiotic though). I love fabric and yarn (though I can't knit.. *yet*..), I like all colors, except perhaps pastels and purple. I like retro prints, and some of my favorite colors are: black, pink/brown, pink/turquoise, green/brown, blue/orange, .. happy stuff. I don't liike baby stuff, the only childlish stuff I dig is japanese kawaii stuff. PM me if you need to know more!!

Thanks in advance if you'll pick me. and happy birthday to all!

Hello all! My name is Amie. My birthday in on May 24, and I will be turning 23 this year.
Please note: I will be outside of my state from Saturday May 27- Sunday June 4th with limited internet access. So if you send something to me, just be aware I may not be able to post pictures, read PM's, etc. Sorry for any delay that may occur.

Wist list:

-A purse organizer like the one here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=25992.0
Or here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=3988.0
Size dimentions should be no wider than 8 inches folded up and no taller than 6 or 7 inches (I have a smaller purse). A fabric with small print, or a hawaiian theme, or vintage fabric would be neat.

-Any necklaces (18 in around is a good length). I wear (and make) lots of jewelry. I love beads and silver (I dislike gold). Or if you want to send me a DIY kit to make something, that would work too. Or if you can do dichroic glass, that would be cool too.

-Some teal/tourqoise ribbon

-One of those car organizers that you hang over the back seat with lot of pockets. My car is teal, so that color or brown would match best, patterns in those colors.

-Any frames or boxes painted with palm trees or shells...this is what my bedroom is done in.

-A water bottle carrier- something I can carry on my shoulder, with a strap.

-A display for necklaces like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=59353.0

-Bath salts/soap/bubble bath/sugar scrub with scent of raspberry, rose, honeydew, vanilla, strawberry...your choice

-Something I can store and transport my paintbrushes in, like a zippered pouch or a box of some sort

-Any bags, wallets, pouches, purses- A girl can never have too many!

-Any notecards- Trees, flowers, animals, stamped/embossed, your choice! Thanks devilninny!

-Anything Rilo Kiley, Rage Against the Machine, Pauly Shore, James Bond, Prison Break, CSI or X-Files themed. If you want to do a shirt, men-sm, Juniors-Lg, Misses-sm, short sleve, that is mid arm, no cap sleve or ones that stop at the armpit. White, lt yellow, lt pink, teal, tan, lavender are good colors.

-Anything science or forensic science related. Oh, and I love Bill Nye the Science Guy!

-Anything involving peanut butter or resses. If you can think of a craft involving these, don't hesitate, I will love it.

-I generally like everything from Blissen http://www.blissen.com/
If you can make something similar to anything on here, except for earrings, I don't wear any.

A jewelry holder like here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=75532.0


For my personal information and more ideas, please follow my swap info link here: http://www.geocities.com/blissdiversion/swap

Thanks to all who pick me <3

My name is Jana, I'm in England. I'm turning 26 on May 23rd.

Happy Birthday, fellow Mayflies!

Wish list-

-A bag like so: http://www.etsy.com/view_item_sold_anon.php?listing_id=134252&transaction_id=40683

-A brown or navy blue tote. Maybe with something cool on it based on my likes. An applique or screenprinting.

-Anything from my wists list

-7x7 inch knit squares for an afghan or granny squares in the same size as I'm hoping to make a granny square quilt eventually.

-A brown, navy, or foresty/avocado-y green, or grey messenger bag. If made with corderoy...I'd name one of my kids after you. I don't have any. One day though. Or at least a pet.

-This bag: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=91768.0

-Foresty themed or patchwork pillow(s)/pillowcase(s) ( my bedding is green ) Yay! I'm getting a Birthday pkg. Thanks so much, Fadeawaydream!

-A Mixed Paper journal ( pretty, pretty please )

-The knitted bag at the bottom of this page: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=88284.10 This color, or brown or green or navy or something

-Anything to do with Russia or with nesting dolls on it

-slide necklace

-A DIY bookbinding kit

-Handknit socks

-Handmade soap, I esp. like citrusy scents

-A surprise! I love packages and would be so happy to receive any birthday surprises.

To anyone who chooses to craft for me, thanks loads in advance!

About me: I'm from Los Angeles but am living in England for a few months. I'm having packages mailed there but if someone wants to craft for me and really wants to send to the States, I can send my home ( US ) addy as I head home in about a month ( and it's my Dad's house so I'll definitely get it even if not home yet ). I'm living with my lovely boyfriend. My name is Jana, I'm 25 years old ( 26 on the 23rd  Shocked ). I like green ( foresty/avacado-y ), browns, and light pink when combined with those colors. I'm obsessed with travelling and with Romania, Russia, and Poland. I like Victorian looking things, forest themed things, Hansel and Gretal, things with trees on it, bikes, nesting dolls. I don't like: metallics, fun fur, when people clip their nails around me, and when people clap at the end of movies. I want to start making a knit patchwork quilt ( my boyfriend has one and I'm so jealous of it ), if anyone wants to send me knit squares ( 7x7 inches or so ) or 7x7 granny squares, I'd love you forever!

about me:
i'm currently living in Wilmington, North Carolina (due to the fact that i'm a HUGE fan of dawson's creek, and now i live there! lol). i like all colors aside from baby pink, and yellows/oranges, or neons. earthy tones are always beautiful. i knit, and i'm soon going to be buying a sewing machine to further my crafting skills.

Hi craftsters! I'm Bloo in Canada and turning 35 (eek!) on May 16!

Here are my birthday wishes!

-a springy purse, something in between dressy and really casual.... er, so kind of pretty/classy but functional? I think something like qazicat's mini bowling bag in a japanese print would make me pass out with happiness!  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=64535.0

-I love gingerquilt's foldaway knit kit: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=82733.msg791732#msg791732  Thank you, SewPixie!!  Kiss

-a pamper-me/feel-good kit. I'm kind of down about turning 35... even though I know that 35 is the new 25...  Wink

-knit socks in fun variegated colours- my feet are 10" long, but narrow. my skinny feet are always cold!

-as always... handspun yarn! mmmm.... yarn....

-flannel or fleece pj bottoms in a fun fabric (I'll pm you my measurements). I think people keep taking mine from the laundromat (ew). 

-mittens in lots of fun/funky/bright colours to make me smile when it is cold and dull out

-quilting fabric (100% cotton only please, my quilt mentor is strict about this  ), current favourites include japanese prints, nature themed prints, fossil fern batiks.

-handmade soaps - favourite scents include vanilla; any kind of citrus, and coconut.

-necklace: 16" long with silver findings, something with colour, classy and pretty so I can wear it to work

-long dangly pretty chandelier earrings for when I dress up

-kanzashi flowers, maybe on a pin or a barrette?

-any kind of handmade stationary/cards/postcards

-a mixed paper journal, they're so beautiful (I wish I could find the link to the all-pink one that someone made for a swap!)

-a knit stitch encyclopedia

-a copy of "Knitting without Tears" by Elizabeth Zimmerman (a used copy is fine!)

-a birthday SURPRISE!!!  Grin

I like jewel tones, colours with blue undertones (i.e. love blue, purple, reds, greens, pink), but not yellow undertones (i.e. don't care for orange, yellow etc.). A little about me... I like canoeing, kayaking, dragonboating, camping, reading, swimming, knitting... umm... jazz, red wine... er... eating dark chocolate, lying around on the couch.... .  Also, I don't have a dig camera, so if you do please take pics before you send so that your lovely things can be shared in the gallery!

thank you craftsters!    Kiss Happy Birthday to all!
