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 can vary in size but we should really try for medium. Remember, a “small” project can take a few hours so even if it is little in size, it could take time to craft. You may also put down supplies or other wish list, again let’s strive for a medium dollar setting.

(example of something that is small but takes medium time: mug rug, jewelry, embroidered tea towel)

ABOUT SENDING AND RECEIVING…

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.
When you receive a claim, you MUST PM the organizer so she can update the main list.
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).
Feedback will be given once all of your packages have been received.
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.

If you want to participate, information to send to: kittykill

Hi,
I’m Lee/steiconi, and I live in hot, dry Arizona.
I have a hubby, but no kids or pets.

Favorite colors are purple, blue, turquoise, green. Silver or copper metal preferred.

I love Day of the Dead, skeletons,
aquatic (especially mermaids and octopi),
sewing,
Cats, monkeys,
7 deadly sins (sin of your choice!),
suns, moons, stars. Planets not so much.
Hubby loves ocean and kayaking and cats, if that inspires you. And space and planets. He really likes handcrafts, and would be thrilled with a surprise.

I’m allergic to lavender, and hate cilantro. Not a fan of cigarette smoke.
Nothing childish, cutesy, kawai, gory, or religious, please.
Don’t like red or orange or mustard yellow as main color. They may have their place as accents, though.

Crafted items I’d love:
Earrings; prefer hooks/wires, dangly, 1.5-2" long.
Pendant; perhaps to match earrings. 1" to 3". I have loads of silver and gold chains, so that’s optional.
Mini shrine
Silly head wreath. Flowers, leaves, ???
Colorful bunting. Pretty much any season; patriotic, spooky, winter, spring, etc.
Door decoration, like a wreath or cutout. Pretty much any season; patriotic, spooky, winter, spring, etc.
Small wall decorations, like under 8", to add to crafty art wall
Pinterest inspiration. https://pin.it/4qSwYNPFy.
Artist’s choice

Craft Supplies:
Bead cups and caps,
fancy head pins
Novel jewelry clasps
Odd shape beads
Velvet scraps
A white pen. I have the worst luck with white pens!
Small bits of turned wood
Colored wire

Extras
Herbal tea, no lavender or chamomile.
Nothing with sugar

Thanks!

  • Motorcycles, antique cars, neat vehicles
  • The X-Men films, especially Wolverine
  • Black panthers (the animal, not the Marvel character—though I’m not opposed to the latter)
  • Interesting facts about the place where you live
  • Everyday Holidays—silly, unnecessary, or “just for fun” holidays. Official holidays are fine too, however, please no santa or Easter bunny (Christmas and Easter are holy days for me, so I prefer to focus on the faith aspect)
  • Lives of the Saints
  • Disney’s Frozen I & II
  • Learning languages (I’m currently learning ASL and would love to learn Polish and French some day)

DISlikes
horror/gore/spooky things, centipedes, Easter bunny, and Santa. I’m not particularly fond of coffee, but my husband loves it, so I’m not opposed to receiving it and giving it to him. I do not eat red or white meat, but I do eat fish on occasion. I’d prefer not to receive leather or other animal-based items (wool is fine).

Allergies/Sensitivities
I am severely sensitive to scented products, and they can trigger my asthma and chronic post-nasal drip, both of which affect my ability to sing in my weekly choir. So please, no scented products of any kind.
