  • Teal, ruby red, emerald (jewel tones), black, … colour combo’s I like
  • Roses, Dahlia’s, Cherry blossoms
  • Music, I sing and teach kids to sing as well

I claim Riechan for some slippers.

I’m Eva and I live in Cologne, Germany, with my husband and our two lovely kids, Emma (7) and Ole (5). Our very little flat is chock-full of craft supplies, especially fabric since I’m an out and out sewist. Besides I’m a high school teacher. Whenever I have some spare time though I find myself crafting. This year I’ve also started gardening a little – we’ve leased an arable plot for the season since we don’t have our own garden. I’m still learning a lot but it really does me good. Crafting and gardening are my yoga :smiley:

We don’t smoke and have no pets (my son and I are allergic to cat hair).

What I like
Bright natural and deep jewel tone colours, boho, tea time, autumn and spring, reading, Harry Potter, board games, hiking, the woods, cooking and baking, red accessorizes, fairies, flowers, birds, beetroots, functional things, upcycling, diversity…

neon and pastel colours, tangy scents, kawaii, princesses, unicorns, super cutesy, coffee, vintage, shabby chic

Hi! I’m Alicia! I’m a technical project manager and a huge gaming nerd, currently living in Pittsburgh, PA. I live with my husband and our two cats.

Likes: lots of color! (teal is my favorite), science (especially chemistry), daffodils, video games (I love Luigi, Pokemon, and have recently gotten really into Fallout), fantasy themes, celestial stuff

Dislikes: Overly pink and cutesy (with the exception of decoden) or super goth aesthetic. Also, the color orange (it’s fine in small amounts, just don’t generally like it as the main color) and animal prints.

In general, I am totally good with surprises, so don’t feel like you have to stick to anything too closely unless you’d like to, or if you think of something not listed here that it seems like I might like or that you love to make, go for it! I am also a big fan of reuse/sustainability, so all good with half-used supplies, repurposed fabric, etc.

Crafts

  • Anything from or inspired by my pinterest would be loved. The most relevant boards are “Swap Wishlist" and “Crafts for DJ” (my husband), but if there’s something on another board that inspires you, go for it! Here’s my etsy favorites as well.
  • Homemade lotions/body butters- I have eczema, so anything with dry skin love would be great (please no soap though, full up on that at the moment!).
  • Tie-dyed anything, especially clothing.
  • Hip bag - examples on pinterest
  • Superhero swag (clothes, accessories, bags, pins - anything I can wear!) - Favorites are She-Hulk and Beast from X-men
  • Homemade candles/incense/wax melts - I really love smelly stuff!
  • Stud earrings - I have double piercings if you’re into matching sets.
  • Small garden decorations - I have a rock bed on the side of my house that I am trying to slowly fill with painted rocks, garden gnomes, etc.
  • Garden flags - My holder is designed for ~12 x 18" flags. These could be seasonal, prayer flags, abstract, pretty much anything you’d like to make!
  • Anything inspired by my favorite movies: The 10th Kingdom and the Back to the Future series.
  • Non-traditional wreaths - I love the idea of having a seasonal wreath up all year round, but never get around to making them. My husband hates the one Christmas one we do have, so all holidays are fair game

Craft Supplies

  • Fiber for spinning - I recently got a blending board so any kind of unprocessed/ bits of fiber would be great, or if you have a braid or batt to give away that’s great too!
  • Adult coloring supplies:
    • Regular adult coloring books
    • Watercolor coloring books
    • Gel pens
    • Alcohol markers
  • Purse making hardware: Purse feet, square connector rings, swivel hooks, unique zippers, turn locks, etc
  • Paint pens/PITT pens - basically anything that you think will draw well over mixed media
  • Any garment sewing magazines, especially Threads and BurdaStyle/Burda World of Fashion - don’t have to be current
  • Candle molds - the only one I own is a very thick pillar
  • Starter kit for resin molding or decoden - both are crafts that I admire from afar, but have been too intimidated to try!
  • Traveler’s notebook inserts - store-bought or homemade
  • Needleminder - I have started doing cross-stitch and want to buy like every single one of these that I see.
  • Small Q-Snap frame

Thanks in advance to whoever makes my wish come true!!

Howdy! My name is Carissa and I live in a sunny suburb of Denver, CO, USA. I’m a domestic engineer that loves to read. My husband stays at home to work because of COVID, but my son recently returned to elementary school full-time. We also have an old lady kitty. She’s my fur-baby.
Any glitter needs to be affixed so it does not leave the surface. My husband despises glitter. I actually don’t like Halloween puns, but I DO love Valentine puns. Weird, right?
I don’t have allergies, although pure wool can get itchy.
