Ongoing Wish Swap Round 4 January 2022

LC member who is organizing this swap: kittykill
Sign-up date range: 1/3/2022-1/31/2022
Claim date range 1/3/2022-1/31/2022(some claims made near the end of the month will have a ship by date in the following month)
Date to send item by: 2 weeks after the date of the claim
Details of swap:

This is an ongoing swap: Claim an item from the list of the last person who posted and post your own list in response. It makes a chain. When we get to the end of the month, the very last person to post a list will be the first person to post a list at the beginning of the next month.

The size of the claim should be a medium item. This means 2 or more crafting hours (this is not cooking time, drying time, etc… waiting around for something to set up…it is craft time for the average crafter) or supplies worth at least $20.

ABOUT SENDING AND RECEIVING…

  1. When you send to the person you have claimed, you MUST PM the organizer with the delivery confirmation # or if you are outside the US, you need to either PM the customs number on your receipt from the post office or upload a copy of your post office receipt.
  2. When you receive a claim, you MUST PM the organizer so she can update the main list.
  3. We are asking that everyone post once a week in the discussion/gallery board–so that we know you’re still here with us. Obviously, if you join mid month, you would only need to post for the weeks you are in the swap (the last 2 weeks cuz you weren’t in the swap during the first 2 weeks).
  4. Feedback will be given once all of your packages have been received.
  5. Please include craft, supplies and misc items on your list-just in case the swap slows down. The more on the list, the more the swap will keep going.

You can make 3 claims at one time. Once you have sent and shown proof it was sent, you can claim again.

Just as an FYI, a lot of the links (especially to Craftsy and Pinterest) in the above list are no longer working.

Thanks @EriChanHime - I’ll check it. It was my list from previous round, so probably some of those are not available anymore.

Hello Guys,

My name is Eszter from Hungary - Europe. I’m 42 years old, living with my husband and with 2 boys (a 10 years old, and a 3 years old) I am a marketing/data analyst – working from home, and I am running a felt decor shop on Etsy.
Dislikes: strong scents, retro design, religious things
my sons’ favorites:

  • older: LOTR, Harry Potter
  • smaller: Winnie the Pooh, Cars (Lightning McQueen)

I added a few more things to this list, which can fly in a flat envelope in case you want to save some shipping costs, and refreshed the list with new link as well.

My wishlist:

Sewing

Others:

Woodworking

Jewelries

… if you can draw / paint …

Supplies

  • Cricut supplies. I bought a Cricut Maker, but in Hungary we are short on supplies. We have amazing paper things, but not much colors on Vinyl, or iron-on things, etc. Even the smallest scraps could make my day. If you have some leftovers, blades, mats, pens and adapters, etc, I am happy to take them
  • Sizzix cutout templates. I am using these for felt, so I need a bit special things, but small flowers, leaves, small animals would work best.
  • Distress Ink (any color)
  • Anything from Starbucks - I am a big fan. Even if we have some Starbucks already in Budapest, I am collecting mugs, bags, coffee, tea, cookies from anywhere in the world.
  • A mailbox - that simple american mailbox like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/136515432428649752/ 2 - you can paint it for me, or I am totally okay with any garbage one. We don’t have it in Hungary, and I love it!
  • Fabric jelly rolls (no retro style, anything else is welcomed): http://www.quiltersangel.com.au/uploads/im/Fabric/jelly-rolls.jpg
  • stamps (no religious ones pls, and with less text) – I am journaling, so days/months would be the best

Extras
2 kids are waiting for the packages, so you can surprise them. I am coffee lover, trying to be more organized… so surprises around these are also making me happy​.

Thanks for claiming me!

I’m Emma and I live in Michigan with my partner where it is currently way too cold. I tend to gravitate towards neutral color palettes with a poppy accent color (think black and white with a red accent), love grays too. For the color accents I love deep jewel tones typically, mustard yellow, yellow-orange, leaf green, I could go on. I dabble in a lot of different crafts but have been knitting most recently. My pinterest can be used for a style/taste guide. I have a pretty strong sensitivity to scents so unless it’s of the mint family, please do not include. Also I am full on soaps, lotions, and candles so no need there.

Here are some ideas of things I’d like - feel free to use them as inspiration

  • RIT (or similar) fabric dye (any colors, but prefer black, blue, red)

I’m Jen and I live in New England, USA with my husband, 3 year old daughter, and 11 year old boxer/yorkie mix Teddie. As a SAHM in a pandemic I spend a lot of quality time in our backyard and at outdoor activities/events with the kid and dog. We love our library (outdoor storytimes! In New England! In Winter!) and reading in general. My daughter is in that nearly universal kiddo “dinosaur stage” (The show Gigantasaurus) and also loves Puffin Rock and Minnie/Mickey, et al. My husband is a Star Wars fella through and through. We all love Harry Potter. My birthday is in January.

Crafty Items:
~ Reusable seasonal, holiday and party decorations. Things like triangle flag banner/buntings fro example. [Winter, Valentine, St. Pats, Spring, Easter, Summer, 4th of july, Fall, Halloween (cute not gory), Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and birthdays. (For birthdays I have this table runner as a jumping off point.)]
~ Anything for my dog, Teddie. We’re celebrating our 11th anniversary this month. She and I were partners before we allowed the husband and kid to join our club. :slight_smile: There are pics of her in the “show us your pets” thread, but note that she inherited her boxer mother’s broad ribcage yet her yorkie father’s wee legs. She isn’t corgi-level short and stout, but she definitely is an odd mix of medium to large dogs. She looks small but is about 40 lbs.
~ Anything gnomes, especially David the Gnome style (Think little Santas). We have several wee gnome homes and fairy houses around the house and yard.
~ Anything pretty and organizey for the craft “room” shelves. I mostly knit and crochet but have bits and bobs of all kinds. And now that the child is of crafting age I have an abundance of child appropriate supplies as well. My craft room has a bit of an April Cornell thing going on right now and a dominant color is the cornflower blue of the old Holly Hobbie “blue girl” stuff.
~ Anything for tea parties. Pre-Covid we had visits regularly with a friend or two and would bust out my china cups and saucers for a wee snack and chat. I really hope Covid releases its hold on us all while my daughter is young enough to want to do that with her old mom and her friends. In the meantime she and I can have fancy tea parties with a reluctant Ted.
~ My dining set was my grandmother’s (read: Old and large) we use table runners and candle mats/place mats and always cloth napkins. Anything in that category would be fun.
~ A big wish would be a piece embroidered with “I will try to be understanding…” which is from my wedding when I was saying my vows and it came out sounding like “I’ll try but…” and the whole room erupted with laughter. It is the most cherished moment of that day for us because it is so “us” and every single person there was part of that laughter-filled slip of time. Now and then when one of us is being annoying (usually him) he’ll say it to bring some levity to the moment. It could be a throw pillow (you could do just a cover and I could buy a form so you don’t have the bulk to mail) or a wall hanging, tea towel, a loose bit of fabric that I might stitch onto something… anything really. We got married in 2014 and I’ve wanted one since then but don’t know how to embroider.
~ A full sized apron for a plus sized woman (I’m about 5’6” and a size 22) I love the pioneer looking ones that cover your whole front and also the 40’s/50’s style that are almost like house-coats. I’ve lost many a shirt to fry-pan splatter.
~ A small print or tile for my kitchen with the quote “Wash the plate not because it is dirty nor because you are told to wash it, but because you love the person who will use it next.” (Mother Teresa/St. Teresa of Calcutta)
~ Felt/fabric play campfire for the daughter’s play tent.
~ Anything hearts especially fabric and felt ones

Supplies

~ Waldorf kite paper
~ Wooden lucet like this one
~ Anything a young child can craft with safely
~ Yarn winder (to make yarn cakes. mmmm cake.)
~ Craft felts in various colors

Misc

Anything for outside play
I love milk chocolate caramels, Dove milk chocolate promises, hershey kisses
Etsy or Amazon gift cards
Anything star wars for the husband
Anything that looks like it belongs on a movie set for a Harry Potter film

Anything you wish to send will likely be a fun thing to receive. Thanks!

I claim @AntBee for TBD (maybe a party or holiday something? I reserve the right to change my mind; I’m SO inspired by your list. May need to alter mine and steal some ideas from you.) Due 1/22.

Hi, y’all! I’m Erin from central Texas, USA. This is my first time joining the OWS, although I’ve always enjoyed the galleries, even going back to the previous site. I live in a tiny condo with my “new” (we’re coming up on our 1-year anniversary the day after Valentine’s Day) husband. I currently work from home, and I love collecting a ridiculous variety of things that I stuff in curio cabinets (because I hate dusting even more than I like collecting). I enjoy watching movies, playing computer and board/card games, and reading as many books as humanly possible. Some of my crafting has been on hiatus as we traveled to see family over the holidays, and as we are still working on our home. Looking forward to easing back in!

Crafty Things I’d love to get:

-I love sewn and stitched/embroidered things, especially, like ornaments and Hooplas (hooped or framed or flat)

-I enjoy tiny clay or pottery things

-I love little dolls (sewn or hard-sculpted or felted) or figures or art dolls or anything that could go in a curio cabinet

-I definitely adore fridge magnets of all kinds

-I love Christmas ornaments of all kinds (except no Santa, please), especially poinsettias, holly, and snowmen/snowflakes

-Egyptian mythological creatures, favorites including:

  • Ammit the Devourer (particularly the cute little version from “The Kane Chronicles” books, examples here and here – not my art)

-The Set animal (from the same book series; so hilarious, and also not my art, but here’s a cute one)

-Weird/creepy-cute things in general :laughing:

-Alligator Loki!!! So cute! I like the realistic version as well as various cartoony/cute versions

-Crites (the titular fuzzy eating machines from the 80’s horror film “Critters” and its sequels) – I like the first and second movie the best

-Xenomorphs (from the Alien movies) & Predators (from the Predator franchise)

-Skeletons and skulls (either traditional or sugar skull style) – I live with a life-sized medical skeleton named Hezekiah, who dresses in fancy clothes and gets different hats for different holidays/times of the year

-Zombies (both the drippy, Night of the Living Dead kind and the cutesy, cartoony greenish kind)

-I particularly like things where traditionally scary creatures are doing cutesy things, like having tea, or petting fluffy animals, etc.

-Natural forest-y and flower things and creatures:

-Mushrooms (particularly toadstools and Death’s Caps)

-Hanging wisteria

-Hydrangeas (particularly the lavenders, greens, and blues)

-Red and orange poppies

-Luna moths

-Rabbits/bunnies (particularly lops; I used to have a white short-eared lop with grey ears, nose, and tail)

-Japanese things (I used to live there!):

-Torii shrine gates (the red-orange ones)

-Koi no bori (fish kites for Children’s Day celebrations)

-Kodama, Soot Sprites, and Dust Bunnies from “Princess Mononoke,” “Spirited Away,” and “My Neighbor Totoro”

-Tanuki and Kitsune from Japanese mythology

Supplies I’d love to get:

-I am trying to learn stamp carving, so any blank carving blocks (like the weird pink stuff) in various sizes would be awesome

-I would really enjoy trying some rinse-away stabilizer, too! I learned about it in a local embroidery group, and it’s been on my list ever since, but I haven’t had a chance to track it down

-I would adore some genuine wool felt in different colors for making ornaments/small dolls, etc. I only have easy access to acrylic felt, and it isn’t strong enough for some things

-I embroider a lot, so nice embroidery floss would be great (I don’t need hoops, though!), especially in variegated colors and things like that I don’t usually buy for myself

Colors: I love all greens & purples (Japanese wisteria is my favorite flower), oranges (I also love red-orange poppies and Red Death Cap mushrooms), earthy tones, dusty pastels (think Japanese Mori Girl pastels, rather than Easter egg pastels).

Patterns/Symbols/Motifs: I like abstract and floral patterns, as long as the individual motifs are very tiny

Materials: I like pearls, green things (green stone beads or things like that), copper and brass colored bits, layered felt designs…

Treats/Extras I’d love to get:

-I adore teas (both caffeinated and non), and things like Earl Grey and citrus/spice based things are my favorites (I don’t like chamomile or other floral flavors of any kind, though)

-I also loooove chocolate, with or without nuts (hazelnuts are my favorites), preferably milk chocolate—I also love it paired with mint/peppermint or peanut butter or caramel (but not fruit!)

-I also enjoy coffees (both caffeinated and non) now, as well—chocolate, hazelnut, peppermint, caramel, and flavors like that would be fun!

-I have a postcard collection from around the world, and would love anything local to you

-I like nifty stickers/badges/pins from around the world or anything geeky/nerdy/science-y

General About-Me Info:

Allergy-related - I am allergic to dogs/cats/most animals with fur; cigarette & similar smoke/odor; basically all scented products (I am extremely sensitive to smells and even many natural oils, like lavender or rose, can make me sick). HOWEVER, if you have pets/animals but keep them away from the craft area/item being made, I should be totally fine! Cleaned animal fibers (like real wool) used for crafting are also completely safe. I do not have any food allergies/sensitivities, thankfully.

I have a non-smoking home with no children or animals, and I use unscented beauty and laundry products (free & clear laundry soap and white vinegar only). The only allergen I have/use that I can think of is gluten, which shouldn’t be relevant for most types of crafting.

-I really would appreciate it if whatever object(s) I receive were fairly physically small, as my tiny condo just added a husband to it and display space is limited!

-I personally love to sew (fabrics and felts), embroider, and crochet, and I dabble in simple, silly clay work sometimes. I’m not a good cross-stitcher, knitter, or paper-crafter, and I draw like a distracted 7-year-old. 2D art is not where I shine. :wink:

-I am also totally happy to answer questions for my partner, even if I want the end swap gift to be a surprise.

  • My Standard Disclaimers: Please nothing with overt sexual content or obvious sexual nudity, and please nothing with current religious or political content or swearing. Also, please, no personal care products, like soaps or scrubs. My skin is so picky that I can’t often use these kinds of things, even if they are unscented and beautifully made. I’m not big on girly-fantasy stuff, neon, animal prints, or rainbows. And please, I beg you, no glitter! :joy:

I claim EriChanHime for a curio to add to her collection.

I’m Molly in the USA! I live with my husband & 3 kitties. I grew up in an artsy/craftsy family and have a long history with a little bit of everything. I work more than full-time at my day-job though, so now when I have time for creating I just spend time doing exactly what I want— which is usually fabric related! Lately I’ve fallen in love with hexies and the paper piecing method.

I like such a variety of colors; bright patterns mostly! I love bright folk art patterns, also vintage books, cameras and scarves/brooches and film noir. My tastes are a little all-over the place, you can definitely use my pinterest as a style/taste guide. If I were to pick one solid color (especially for something to wear) it would be pine or kelly green.

Dislikes: Floral fragrances, Dead/skull/creepy things, clowns, etc. Glitter

I love everything vintage up to the 1950’s. I love indoor plants and my garden (in the summer time). Right now I am all about thinking of warmer weather, spring and bright colors.

Hi, my name is Ann and I live in Sweden with my husband and two cats, Chilla and Chaplin. I live in a newly developed suburb south of Stockholm. We’re back to masks at work and plenty of work from home again… Both humans and cats enjoy watching birds at the bird feeders in the garden.

Some of my hobbies are knitting, crocheting, letterboxing (or geocaching when I can’t find letterboxes), videogames (mostly on ps4 and switch) and snorgling the cats. Most of my crafting lately have been more or less visible mending. My husband paints miniatures, mostly Warhammer 40k, so we’re both crafty.

Pre-loved supplies and re-used/repurposed parts of a craft is welcome. Heavy scents can set off my husbands migraines, but there are no allergies in the household. I don’t drink coffee, but it smells kind of nice.

Please note: The postal system can be a bit unreliable lately. Letters and packages that are too large for the mailbox will be left next to it unless there’s paid tracking or an extra fee paid by the sender to have it picked up at the post office. I’m not sure yet what this will mean for international packages. Your best bet is probably to send something fairly flat in a padded envelope, or to use some kind of sign on delivery option (but that would get spendy). I’ll try to get more info.

Ok, on to the good stuff!

Pinterest if that gets your creative juices flowing: http://www.pinterest.com/annchen82/ Warning! It’s pretty massive, and some boards are mostly for my own inspiration. I don’t expect copies of the pins, but hopefully something on it can inspire.

Colors I like: http://www.pinterest.com/annchen82/colour-texture-scents/

Crafted items

A surprise! If you love making it I’m sure I’ll love receiving it.

Art/hoop/badge/embroidery with the word NEJ and then the universal no symbol over it No symbol - Wikipedia Like this, but with the word ”nej” No sign icon stop saying prohibition symbol Vector Image

Lavender bag decorated by you. I can fill it myself for a flatter package.

Microwaveable heat bag filled with rice or other grains (again, I can do the filling to save on postage). Perhaps a longer skinny one for my neck or smaller handwarmers. Any size really.

Stationery set. Letter paper + envelope or notecards. I write a lot so I tend to get envelopes left when I’ve used up a set. 2 sheets to an envelope would probably fit my writing style.

A mug rug

A bag for carrying around cloth pads. I use a simple drawstring one at the moment but it’s starting to look a bit ratty. I’d like it to fit 4-5 pads at least. Bonus if it’s got some kind of built in wet bag for used ones, but I do have a separate wet bag so that part is optional.

Something for the garden

I’m a sucker for project bags. And I’m not a monogamous knitter/crocheter so I use a bunch. Do I need more? Noo… but…

Socks. (I know, usually not really a medium item but someone might want to make them…) I think I’m an US size 8.

Small decorative dish for setting down my used tea bag or tea strainer.

Something tiny.

Embroidery needle storage thingy. Needle book?

A cat toy if you don’t mind your lovingly crafted item being kicked around by furry hooligans. They like catnip but are unimpressed by valerian.

Kitty place mat for Chaplin, he’s a messy eater so having a placemat that’s washable or wipeable saves on mopping the floor. He will ”help” by licking the floor, but a placemat is nicer.

Potholders. Bonus point if they’re on the larger side since my husband has big hands.

Reusable mesh bags for veggie shopping (sewn, knitted, crocheted, whatever works).

Something soothing to occupy my hands during meetings.

A mouse pad for the home office. My mouse doesn’t work consistently on my desk… annoying.

Bottelcap pin cushion or other small pin cushion for my mending adventures.

Fun cloth masks. Looks like they’ll be needed for a bit longer.

Adult merit badge

Something silly

Supplies

Colorful mercerized cotton, partial skeins are ok. I like Catania from Schachenmayr SMC and Catona from Scheepjes. One is listed as sport and the other as fingering on ravelry but I could swear they’re the same thickness… Anyhow, that’s what I’ll use it together with so similar thickness and shine would be nice.

Embroidery needles. (Starting to dabble and I’m not sure what’s good)

Needle felting things. I keep breaking the hardware, he he.

Small amounts of wool for needle felting. I mostly use it to mend smaller holes in wool clothes so a little goes a long way.

Crochet hooks with comfy handles. I mostly use hooks in the 2 mm to 5 mm range. I hold my hooks more like a knife than a pen if that makes sense.

A small sewing project (pattern or kit) I can pull off as a beginner. I’ve got a good machine but I’m not sure what would be a good/fun beginner project. I know the basics so a bit of a challenge might be fun.

Extras

Local to you candy/treat

Tea is always welcome

If you can combine those two and get Bali’s best tea candy I’m totally here for it!

I’m Emma and I live in Michigan with my partner where it is currently way too cold. I tend to gravitate towards neutral color palettes with a poppy accent color (think black and white with a red accent), love grays too. For the color accents I love deep jewel tones typically, mustard yellow, yellow-orange, leaf green, I could go on. I dabble in a lot of different crafts but have been knitting most recently. My pinterest can be used for a style/taste guide. I have a pretty strong sensitivity to scents so unless it’s of the mint family, please do not include. Also I am full on soaps, lotions, and candles so no need there.

Here are some ideas of things I’d like - feel free to use them as inspiration

CRAFTS

SUPPLIES

  • RIT (or similar) fabric dye (any colors, but prefer black, blue, red)
  • petri dishes for an art project
  • collapsible yarn swift
  • decorative metal sheet
  • circular knitting needles size US 2/3, 16 inch length
  • Easy Cast resin
  • rotary blades for a fiskar cutter, standard size
  • sewing machine thread, any colors
  • basic sewing machine needles
  • white or off white plain cotton fabric (at least a yard)
  • gift card to etsy, knitpicks

I also enjoy your local treats, chocolate, hot sauce, etc if you feel like sending

I’m Leann from Michigan in the US. I’m married and have a furry dog, Hazel. I am allergic to nickel in jewelry, but otherwise have no allergens. I have a whole pinterest board dedicated to swapping and would love to see any interpretation you see of the items! https://www.pinterest.com/leannavananna/crafties-id-love/ Most of the items on my list are represented there somehow.

Themes/Things I like: monochromatic, black and white combined with pops of color, polka dots, ombre, woodland creatures, rainbows, positive affirmations, cute monsters, whimsical/cute items, kawaii, abstract art, happy mail, ATCoins, small amigurumi, dogs, birds, sloths, cacti, happy mail

Things I prefer not to receive: Items made with recycled jeans or bed sheets (it creeps me out to think of anything made with something that may have touched someone’s naked cha-cha), jewelry (I don’t really wear any on a daily basis and I’d hate for something made with love to sit in a jewelry box), coffee mugs or drinking glasses (cupboard is already overflowing), all embroidery or cross stitch items preferred hoopless so I can frame instead, no snacks although tea is always welcome!

Colors I like: rich jewel tones, black and white mixed with color, greens, magenta, mustard yellow, and robin’s egg blue

Some things I would love to receive:

  • Colorful prayer flags with positive affirmations
  • Adult Merit Badges
  • Crochet or knit slippers – My feet are size 8.5ish. I love these, but wouldn’t need the leather bottom http://smpcraft.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/slipper-boots.pdf Anything similar would be great also. I have some others listed on my pinterest in the crafties I’d love board.
  • Anything specified from my Undercover Fandom board on pinterest. Items specified in each entry. T-shirts would need to be women’s L.
  • Handmade soaps or lotions, just no floral scents, please
  • A resin pendant with the letter L in it. No chain, just the pendant due to the nickel allergy. If the little attacher part that the chain goes into is nickel, that’s okay…a little bit shouldn’t be an issue.
  • Microwave bowl holders
  • A loaded pocket or other happy mail item
  • Fun, colorful rainbow stuff
  • Fun dinosaur items
  • Brooches inspired by those on my pinterest
  • Suncatcher
  • A few large wool dryer balls
  • Bookmarks
  • Happy Magnets
  • Keychain/zipper pull type things I can put on my purse/bag
  • A cute little amigurumi

Supplies I’d love to receive

  • Leftover yarn pieces that you can’t find a home for that I can use in weaving - at least 6 foot pieces would be great
  • Mixed media art supplies that might be fun to try
  • Washi tape
  • Zippers for making zipper pouches in neutral shades
  • Cute crochet amigurumi books
  • Black Tombow brush pen marker or something of equivalent
  • Decoupage Papers
  • Amazon Gift Card for supplies
