She has it in her profile.  Wink

Like everyone else, I've been refreshing my bookmarks page obsessively. Bahhh!

I thought for a minute that *I* broke craftster for 12 hours. Not a good feeling.

and: thanks, Dragonsmuse! I've been eyeing those for a while.

I'll claim DragonsMuse's wish for a wist surprise.

I'm from NY. This is my fourth wish. One has been received and the other two are still in transit.

My wishlist:

1- Amy Butler type of fabric- actually any type of fabric you have- preferably about a yard long.

2- A bag like this:


3- Felt bead necklace like the purple one in the link below.

4- A painting inspired by Monet to dress up my bedroom.

5- A diy kit for sewing a specific project that you are good at. I'm a beginner sewer and I work well with patterns but I would love to learn some new projects. For example: If you're good at making Jordy bags or a certain type of skirt than you could send me a picture filled tutorial and some materials to aid me. I can make a lot of basic things so I would love learning something with more difficulty. If you need me to be clearer you can PM me.

6- A wallet made of some big bold flower fabric [not paisley flower like] Pretty please!
The fabric and style is perfect.

7-- DIY stencil kit or Grow an Herb Garden. I'm loving the kits that you guys put together- every one I've gotten has been incredibly amazing!

8- A knitted headband like this one:
I love the colors used in it too.

9- I love everything about this orange clutch:

10- Any Amy Butler patterns that you have [with all pattern pieces and directions, please]

11- Anything on my wists       Grin

12- Any Japanese craft books or magazines.

13- A handmade big calendar. I've been staring at the December page for too long. I've been meaning to buy one but I can't find one I like.  Something bright and preppy.

14- Paper for scrapbooking or bookmaking.
Thank you tickle_me_ally!

15- A L pink tshirt for my boyfriend that says: My girlfriend went to New Hampshire and all I got was this shirt.

About me: I'm 22 and I'm going for my masters in early education. I work at a daycare center in a classroom filled with four year olds. I love to knit [beginner], crochet, cook, and sew. I want to broaden my crafting horizons though so I want to learn some new things. I love dark gem-like colors, especially blues, plums, and reds.  I'm a simple girly-girl. I think this picture best sums up my style: http://static.flickr.com/31/63660763_ae87a69fec.jpg?v=0

Thank you for reading my list    Grin

14- Paper for scrapbooking or bookmaking.

I claim dontlookback for teh scrapbooking paper. This is my second claim this round.

My list:
Granny squares. I dont know. I think theyre really cool looking, and I wish I could crochet. But maybe a bag or something?

A nice skirt. I am extremely proficient at making your typical A-line, but I never work up the courage/energy to embellish one nicely or even to branch out into a pencil skirt or something. I hate to give examples because I am extremely open, but

Something nautical. Maybe a fairly casual top or skirt or maybe some jewelry or I guess Im getting at something wearable.

A knit piano key scarf!!! Holy cow. I was extremely impressed by this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51018.0

A funky pincushion. Maybe felt?

Any kind of cute accessory. I am kind of starting to get into those big, chunky, colorful bead necklaces, but maybe something with a little bit more originality? I also like rings and I do have pierced ears.

A cute knitted hat, maybe with animals or something.

T-shirt with a fairly simplistic but still enjoyable design. Thanks highschoolcraftster!

Ooh, or a yoked top.

Buttons. Nuff said.

Tree stuff. Gotta respect trees.

A collection of photos. Im really into weird collections of photos lately, like a series of photo booth photos, or of the inside of peoples refrigerators, or of names in sidewalks, whatever you fancy. Or maybe a kind of album for pictures to go in, but I prefer the kind that are just paper, where you have to physically adhere the picture to the page, and then it leaves you room for writing as well.

Something about unicorns.


A new glasses case.

Learn-to kits:
1.) Silkscreening
2.) Felting
3.) Resin
4.) Macram
5.) Slide necklace things

About Me: I am almost 17, living in Council Bluffs, IA (its like Omahas ugly little sister). I am editor in chief of my schools newspaper, involved in Mime Club and technical theater, and am currently spending most of my summer working on a community art project for our public library through the Bemis Center. I am inspired by vintage styles, street style, and surprising combinations. I like black and/or white combined with primary colors, complimentary color combinations and pretty much any other good color combination as long as it doesnt involve neons. I also pretty much freaking love Old Navy and Forever 21. I like appliqus, animals and geometric patterns like polka dots, stripes, checks, etc. But not really those Vans-slip-ons-and-racing-flags kind of checks. Meh, I dont know. PM me or something.

hey swappers --

i've been having major internet issues (craftster being down and then my internet disappearing randomly) so please check your status in the second and third posts of this thread and make sure they're correct!  if you notice an error, please pm me.  i'm going to be adding 'in progress' feedback to everyone who has made a claim so far, and my way of denoting that will be to add an asterisk* next to your name.  if you have an asterisk, please check your profile to make sure the feedback went through.

thanks everybody!

I claim lasandri for a wisty surprise!

I'm in California - this is my 3rd claim this round - 2 have been received


1. snaps for cuffs - the kind you hammer in ( not sew in - I have those) but I want to try the hammery ones.
2. Beads - never enough beads for me! - no fimo or plastic please

"Learn to" kits:

needle felting
soap making
felted soap making - seeing a trend? ^_^
learn to bind books kit thanks arabella!

Wearable Stuff:

1. Headband and/or scarf in a fabric from list of favorite types.
2. These earrings or something similiar: game controller
3. Stenciled or silk screened shirt with a gun (walther ppk-original james bond gun) and/or flowers (the S.O. knows how to stencil & silk screen but damn if it's a little too much to get my head around) Women's Medium Please - but must be stretchy as I'm kinda curvy
4. a totoro hat!!
5. tiny crocheted flower hair pins - I just figured out how to get my hair to look cute with my bangs pulled over to the side and pinned (love it - thought it looked dorky on me until 2 weeks ago - now I need tiny pins and clips)

Big and or harder wearable stuff:

1. You would be my best-est friend in the whole world if you made me this dress but instead of an owl, I want a Walther PPK! My attempt did not work out so well.
2. Cast resin bracelet or necklace with a georgia o'keefe image (flowers not bones) I don't have space/ventilation to cast resin. (inspiration: Abstract and nature and the desert)
2a. A microscope slide necklace with same art or cherry blossoms - similiar to this one that tigergirl made for knottydottie - Here - I lost all my soldering stuff when I moved to LA
3. A circle skirt! Blue with Big Flowers - kiwi monkey style!

Other Crafty Stuff:

1. Katamari Ball - pin cushion or crocheted magnetic thing. Naaaah na na na na na Kata Mari DAHH MACCYY
2. A kneedle roll - now that I have more than 1 set of needles, I need something to keep them in!

Non-crafty stuff

1. A surprise see below or my wists for what I like.
2. Hello kitty anything
3. San-X - Mr. Cold stuff would AWESOME
4. anything from meomi.com

About me I'm 6 feet tall, almost 33 y.o. and I live in Hollywood. I love dogs, anything ultramarine blue or cobalt, computers, technology, the internet, sci-fi, anime, anything Japanese especially hello kitty and san-x. I don't drive, but I take the train to work subways ROCK! I'm pretty girly, but not lacey and froofy, think candy and pink. I love pink too.However, as an aged ex-goth/new wave chic, I'm still addicted to black and all my techno style jewelry (think computer bits and lots of shiny stuff etc). My favorite designer style is Oakley, as in the sunglasses AND Deisel. Dragonflies are my favorite bug, but I'm not a nature girl I love the city pictures of tiny cute animals (like meomi.com) are awesome.  Dress wise, I do conservative but hip for work (I work at an internet company so I can't dress too stuffy) with mostly black, some grey, green, blue, orange, and pink. I'm a t-shirt and jeans girl at home.

I hate aquamarine, yellow, and turquoise.

Oh and NO Disney related stuff!

Thanks in advance to anyone who picks me!

I claim animegirlie for beads and probably hammer in snaps (if the local craft store still carries them)

This is my 4th claim this round (the other 3 have been received)

My list:


A large tote bag - with a zipper would be great but not necessary.  Nice and bright!!!!

A summer purse - with wooden handles, if possible.

Oven mitts - any material but something with food, chili peppers or fruit would be nice!

I'd love a plush teddy bear!


12" squares - any pretty colors and nice pattern would be fine but if you need inspiration, check out this website: http://www.quilterscache.com/BlocksbySizeC.html


A teapot picture with the teapot measuring about 3" x 3" and the Aida cloth at least 6" x 6" so I can frame it to match the few others I have.

Any picture that features tulips, scarecrows or sunflowers

Wooden Items

Rail pet - if you're a wood worker you may know what I mean but if not, check out this for ideas:


I'm planning to make a jar quilt featuring fruit and veggies so any fabric with this theme would be great.


Eeyore, Pooh or Tigger crocheted in thread - I already have Piglet and he's getting lonely for his friends.

Slippers - ladies size 9 in dark blue or dark green


I collect miniature kitchen utensils so anything to add to this collection would be appreciated.

This is really out there and I doubt anyone will actually do it but if you want to send me a small, electric chocolate fountain, I would be so happy.

A bit about me:  I live in Alberta, Canada.  I'm a stay at home Mom and have just started a casual job at a bank, which I am totally loving.  I like to crochet, sew, quilt, tole paint and some times cross stitch.  I'll usually try a craft at least once.  I totally love swapping!
