Hi Im elizabeth, I will be 23 on june 11th. I sew and crochet all day everyday. I love retro things, like the housewife stuff or tiki/hula stuff. I love sewing themed prints especially vintage ones. I like pink, red, orange, lime green, turquoise, brown. I love original Nintendo things.

* a intermediate beginner knitting kit, I know how to knit and purl to make a scarf, I need to learn decrease/increase so I can make something more complicated and cool.

* a bookbinding kit, I want to learn how to make those cool mixed paper journals

* a crochet bead necklace, heres a tutorial https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=88350.0 i do crochet, but i haven't ever had the time to sit down and make these

* super cool thank you cards or note cards.

* earrings, I love little dangly charms on earrings, like a little revolver, or a heart, or scrabble tiles, anything, I like little food a lot too

* fabric!! I collect novelty type fabrics (like day of the dead, or cheeseburgers, or firemen) no calicos or soft floral types. Id really love pinup fabric or sewing themed fabric.

* handspun yarn, Im having such a love affair with it right now, I love the plied, multi colored stuff people come up with.

* Id love a little plastic, kitschy, fun charm bracelet, or just fun plastic charms, I cant ever seem to find cool plastic charms.

* i really need organization stuff, i would love a crochet hook roll or organizer, or cool boxes to put things in

* a surprise

I have a wists in my signature at the bottom, for more ideas!

Hi! My name is Sarah and I'll be turning 19 on June 10th. I'm an english major and I love music, reading, writing, painting, sketching, embroidery, Chuck Norris, sewing, and mermaids. My favorite kinds of colors are greens and blues, also purple and cranberry, my favorite prints are argyle and paisley. And although I'm fairly new to craftster, I think I've been one at heart since birth.

~ Any kind of embroidery supplies; floss, needles, hoops, patterns, transfer pencils, stork scissors, and especially things to embroider ON (tea towels, handkerchiefs, and the like).

~ Handmade bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. I love chunkier designs and designs that have something unique or unexpected about them. I especially love really long necklaces you can loop around a bunch of times.

~ Some kind of earring tree or earring-organizer.

~ Absolutely -anything- that has to do with mermaids. A bag, coin purse, wall hanging, t shirt, matchbox, piece of jewelry, -anything-.

~Typewriter keys or Scrabble tiles.

~ Any kind of pin cushion (I can't believe I still haven't bought one!) or a box like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=90228.0 to keep my needles in.

~ A handmade journal for penning the next great American novel (or something) in.

~ I -love- original art. From photographs to sketches to oil paintings to pictures of dinosaurs eating second grade teachers rendered with crayons on computer paper, I adore it all.

~ Anything made out of records or record sleeves (bowls, jewelry, notebooks, etc.).

~ Any sort of art supplies. Oil pastels, copic markers, watercolors, paper, sketchbooks, anything to create with.

~ Any kind of suprise you might have up your sleeve!

yay! i love june!
my birthday is on the 18th and i will be 29. i'm getting a bit anxious about the big 3 0. Cheesy

my wishes are:

-a pair of fake converse. size 40 (w9)

-iron-on transfer paper or iron-on transfer pens

-plastic snaps-the no sew kind

-pretty flannel or cotton fabric-especially floral, retro prints.

-if you live in a country besides Canada or the USA, i would love some neat stuff from your country.

-a felted bag

-handknit socks

-a Liger t-shirt(it's pretty much my favorite animal) THANKS highschoolcrafter!

-a handmade journal, or a swap journal like this:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77501.0

-something with a bunny. shirt, pin, stuffy, whatever you want to make. i'd especially like a bunny that is weird, demented or bad-assed in some way. like a smoking bunny, or something like that. i like things that are cute with an evil twist.
-address labels

-some kind of album or binder to keep all my craft project ideas. i have loose clippings and instruction sheets everwhere. include some instructions for projects you like to do!

-this is a long shot but-a pirate hat! in case you have one lying around you don't need. maybe it could be felted?

-anything from my wists!(down there at the bottom)

-a surprise!

i'm in BC, Canada. i'm a gardener, i love nature, bees, birds, flowers, sea creatures, retro and kitschy vintage stuff, frida kahlo, quentin tarantino, edward gorey, asian or mexican style stuff. my favorite foods are sushi, olives, and black licorice!
i like alot of color, bright, crazy patterns, etc.
my favourite color is green, but i like any color except purple.

i don't have my own digital camera so it's a good idea to take pictures if you craft for me.
thankyou to anyone who may choose to craft for me!

I'll be 29 (29? yes...29... whew, i'm getting forgetful ) on June 26th! Although I don't FEEL like I'll be 29 and I certainly don't have my 29 year-old shiz together. Go figure.   My ultimate birthday wish is a sewing machine - but don't worry, that just might be my birthday prezzie to myself. Although I would LOVE and totally appreciate any recommendations!!  Grin

I love birthdays!! And I certainly couldn't accept a birthday prezzie without sending you a birthday prezzie back!!  I don't know why, but every time someone says "happy birthday!" to me, I automatically say "happy birthday!" back to them.  Roll Eyes

Here are my birthday wishes and I'll be wishing for them when i blow out the candles!

Things I have been shamelessly lusting over:

 Lothlurin's fold-away knit kit!!

 aeronberry's Kokeshi doll ornaments

the neckscarves by opiate rose:

Zoe necklace from Serenity/FireFly - i'm in love with it! WHEE! Thanks so much!

fleece lap blanket - I'd love one with a solid colour and something
appliqued on it

monster pouch for my ipod mini

large tote bag for my dragonboating gear

Supplies - stuff I can never have too much of!
1. fabric - cotton, kimono, Japanese, silk georgette- whatever you have
would be fantastic! I want to make more kanzanshi flowers and I don't
have a fabric stash!! Your scraps would be PERFECT.
2. paper & ephemera


a) soy wax candles
b) soap making - especially the teeny tiny soaps found here!
c) spinning
d) quilting
e) stenciling  - I want to learn how to stencil t-shirts, bibs and onesies!

a surprise

I love hoarding things. So any offhand supplies will be adored in its new home. I love most colour combinations - black with anything, I especially love cranberry red, blues, purples, silver, greens and chocolate brown.  I'm really into musical theatre, computers, fantasy and asian-inspired themes, fruits, veggies, cupcakes (it's a food group all on its own), nature, animals... I also love anything themed with cutesy flowers, happy patterns or dragonflies.  I like things simple, elegant and classic. 
Have a happy one!

Here's my list:

a wallet that looks like a crossword puzzle, clues and all!

a Scrabble, Monopoly, or Risk bulletin board

a utiliKilt but made to look more girly (pm me for ideas) (here's what a utiliKilt is: http://www.utilikilts.com/)

stenciled shirts, the wittier the better

I also love animals and consider myself to be very free-spirited and open-minded.

Here is my birthday wishlist:

     esp. summer dresses and tops, comfy things that still look nice. I love
     anything inspired by free people, urban outfitters, anthropologie, project
     alabama, etc.

- vintage stuff, esp fabric
- handspun or dyed yarn
- felted beads
- any kind of bead mix
- sweedish fish, it's an addiction

Hey crafsters! I'm Jess and my birthday is a little devilish this year: 6/6/06.  Grin I'm turning 23.

A bit about myself:

I'm a college student living in east tennessee. I'm studying Public Relations and Pre-Pharmacy, also minoring in Sociology and Marketing. I'm (obviously) nerdy and chatty and, of course, love crafting. I mostly just sew and crochet, even though I'm learning to knit and do reconstruction projects. When I'm not crafting or studying, I'm also a server. Like many of the other Geminis, I like vintage stuff, especially things from the 50's or 70's. I'm very colorful and enjoy being "the weird friend". I don't usually wear traditionally trendy things, but like an eclectic mix of nifty things in my wardrobe and home.

My Wishlist:

~Clothes of all kinds, esp. vintage looking stuff, little tshirts and dresses. I'm a size 5 or so and usually wear a small or x-small shirt.

~A bright bag or purse - can't have too many of those!

~Decorated shoes - heels, tennies, slippers or whatever. I'm size 7.5 or 8.

~A bookmark - love to read!

~A lamp- i would LOVE any kind of little lamp! can't have too much light in my little apartment

~Cool kitchy stationary/ note cards

~Cute little drinking related things

~Any kind of jewelry

~Good smelling stuff - lotion, candles, etc.


~Mix cd of some crazy music

~A scarf

~Posters or any kind of art

~Anything devilish, since my birthday is 666 this year  Cheesy

~and a surprise!

Any questions- just PM me! Thanks for reading my list and Happy Birthday to the other June babies!! Smiley
