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 2 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

2. Confirm that are at least 16 years old: (YES/NO)

3. Do you understand that you are claiming for at least a medium sized item? For this swap a medium sized item means 2 or more crafting hours or over $20 worth of supplies.

I’m Pam. I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband who owns a vintage collectible toy store and my three dogs: Maisy, Iggy and Monty. I work part-time as an assistant for a forensic psychologist and I’m going back to school in September for Computer Science. I turned 50 this year although I’m sure I’m still 25 and it is just a typo on my birth certificate. I love everything vintage up to the 1950’s. My backyard is my sanctuary. It is a tiki/boho theme.

Ok, I gotcha kittykill! Edited to add that I claim a book on your reading list (I ordered it for myself as well. =book club time!!!) an enamel pin and a few other items I am being vague about in case the supplies don’t arrive in time!

————————-
About me:

I’m Shannon. I live in the USA on the border of the CA San Francisco Bay Area and Central Valley with my husband and 11 year old kid. I got my BA decades ago but recently, as a middle aged woman, I earned my graduate degree and I now work in a Lab Preschool at a local Junior College.

In my personal life, I’m immature as hell. Seriously.

My husband is a Dr of quantum physics from Germany who works for Stanford and CERN and is a super collector of Lego and is x10 more interesting than me (so enough about him. Let’s get back to talking about ME!!! :wink:)

I am TOTALLY up to surprises. If you are really good at a certain craft that isn’t on here please GO FOR IT! I’m sure I’d like it!

Craft ideas for me
•Doilieys
•Hand made paper
•Keychains
•Crafted or clever clips. One can never have enough clips (for food, paper, whatever!) and if they are adorable, clever, or make me smile - all the better!
•Office supplies that have had a crafty, clever or decorative upgrade somehow.
•Crafty Kitchen stuff (pot holders, spoon rests, hand towels, scrubbers…)
•Cozies, containers or wraps of all sorts. Just in general (like hand crafted tissue box slip, wine bottle cozy, hand sanitizer sling, lip balm cozy…) or for food (waxed reusable food wraps, painted washable bento box, sewn lunch sack…) or for things in my purse (eyeglass/sunglasses case, container for my cloth face masks, earbud case, coin purse, little makeup bag…)

Supplies I could use:
•A book binding dowel or punch
•Fancy or novelty sprinkles for baking
•Molds for epoxy resin casting
•Colored wood stain (like Unicorn Spit Brand)
•Waxed book binding string
•Some book boards for book binding
•Fun patterned bias tape
•Bright colored roving wool
•Cute/interesting doll/plushie eyes and noses
•A new rotary cutter

Misc:
•Stuff that is Rainbow Metallic
•Stuff that is opalescent somehow
•Stuff that is “holographic”
•Hard candy (that won’t melt in the mail)
•Snacks
•Things that express my deep appreciation for booze or caffeine.
•Fat fuzzy bumblebees
•Things that change color always delight me
•Anything rose scented
•I love visual illusions or crazy hypnotic patterns. My favorite color is black and white checkerboard or argyle.

•Here’s my Pinterest for ideas:

•Here’s my Amazon list for ideas:
https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2N9R2UYNFSPM9?ref_=wl_share

•Here’s my Etsy List for ideas:

Please note:
I am a fat woman. Even my feet and head are plus size! Clothing related items are always problematic and it may be safer to avoid that category altogether for me.

Here’s my dislikes:
•Most stuff that is meant to be inspiring.
•Disney stuff (yes, there are a few exceptions. But in general it’s just not my cup of tea)
•Religious stuff (I just don’t want to involve that here)

Thank you in advance!

Hello, I am Candice. I am from the beautiful Pacific Northwest (Oregon, USA :wink: ). I have three kids and just married their dad September 13th, 2019, after 13 years of dating. We bought our first home a year ago and now I have a designated room for my art, which is amazing. The walls are filled with work from others. I love collecting art. There is more info on my profile, please go snoop. :smiley:

Miniature supplies (wooden smalls to be painted, tiny accessories from the fairy garden area at the craft store, etc.)
A sample of your favorite supplies (surprise me!)

OTHER
Whatever you are good at! Because I love collecting art from and supporting other artists, I would love to see what you do. If your “thing” does not fit into the above ideas, do it anyway! You make pendants? Do it! You love making bookmarks or fabric weights? Go for it! I have been surprised by wonderful little things that I would never have thought to ask for. So please… let this be your empty canvas…

Hello, my name is Linda. I am retired and leaving in the beach community of Wilmington, NC, USA. I am married to a wonderful man who loves to shop and cook, and he even likes to do laundry! He loves to play music and is proficient in guitar and drums. This is great because it leaves me to be able to spend a lot of time doing what I love: craft and garden!

I downsized a lot when I moved. It is a wonderful feeling when you realize how few things you really need to be comfortable and happy. I am so glad that I have my craft room full of supplies, because I don’t have to brave the outside world to get a project done.

I love this swap because it is low pressure, and I am often inspired to make things that I don’t need or want, but that others might love!

My list is going to be short compared to others.

My themes : Halloween, winter holiday (reindeer, trees, snowmen), gardening, insects, snakes and reptiles, mushrooms, cactus or any plant, sea life/beach

I want pieces that express you in some way…do your thing!

Things I love:

4x6 art in any medium

Fabric journal pages, 4x6 size

TM patches

Slow stitch pieces

Hoops…felt, stitched, even cool fabrics!

Tags, tickets, or stuff to decorate my journals

Master boards to use as backgrounds for my stuff

Tree ornaments

Bird anything

Notecards

Felt magnets, badges, hoops…I love felt!

Shrines or little decorative pieces I can put on my desk

ATC triples…I love the 3 piece sets!
Dotees, prayer flags, and Ninni monsters are always welcome!

Supplies I could use:
Small amounts of roving to use in art
Washi tapes
Poly or paper clay to try (not much!)
Beads to use for wind chimes, art embellishments
Unusual buttons

Other:

Your favorite dessert or main dish recipe-printed or in a link…

I am overwhelmed when I go looking on line!

Postcard from where you live—for International Swappers, this is what I want the most!

Coffee sleeves from around your area…no Starbucks, please…I have a ton of those

My Pinterest is so disorganized, but then, maybe it will give you an idea of how chaotic my life is!

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!

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 just 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.

Crafty merit badges - I have a goal of one day embroidering an oversize denim jacket with urbanthreads’ “D*** it feels good to be a seamstress” pattern, and it would clearly need tons of these on the front. :slight_smile:

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 is 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!

I have recently gotten into crumb quilting, but don’t have a big quilting stash, so I would love smaller pieces of quilting fabric or large scraps.

If you want to stalk more, here are my Etsy favorites and Amazon supplies list as well.

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

I claim fishsticks for merit badges.

this is my first claim.

Hi, I’m Ann, in Maryland (US), introvert mother of a little extrovert 6yo, maker of stuff especially machine embroidery. Allergic to tobacco (please don’t send unwashables if someone in your house smokes.) No earrings or strong scents, please. Reused/thrifted/recycled/etc supplies always encouraged if you have them, including for shipping.

colors for me: anything nature-inspired especially dark greens. My 7yo daughter is super fond of pink, floral anything, gold & sometimes purple.

-anything off my swap pinterest, here: https://www.pinterest.com/interfacemasque/swap-ideas/

-washable placemats, sets of 3 or 4, or singles are fine- that can be either all alike, or the same quilt pattern in different colors (pink, green, blue, ?)… some examples on my swap board above, but have fun. Seasonal nature welcome, no religion or holidays other than Hallowe’en please, slight preference for rectangular or oval over round.

-headwrap scarves in stretchy knit non-animal hair natural fibers (so, cotton unless you have silk or linen knits floating around!) like these: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/523895369135756924/ …solid is fine, patchwork or fun patterns are great too. (I love the look here: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/523895369149579254/)

-Sturdy magazine holders-- we love this one: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/523895369150661557/

-we can always use more reusable snack bags.

-Something inspired by my paleoart pinboard: https://www.pinterest.com/interfacemasque/doggerland-paleoart/

-Gift certificates to Urban Threads, Embroidery Library, or etsy are always welcome to fund my machine embroidery habit. Decorative thread is great, too.

-Something inspired by my wild things out of the wild wood pinboard: https://www.pinterest.com/interfacemasque/wild-things-out-of-the-wild-wood/

-funny little dolls (human or not, could also be wild things etc)- I’m particularly fond of jointed paper things or these little stuffed ones: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/523895369149453986/

-Unscented soy or beeswax candles, any size, containers or tealights preferred. Random containers like old tea tins/broken handled mugs/etc are great.

-small tabletop zen garden w/ mini rake & lid to keep the dust out (& the sand in!) anything from altoid tin sized up to ~8” square as long as the rake is in scale.

-a Beam paints sample card: https://beampaints.myshopify.com/collections/travel-kits/products/beam

-my child would love cute plushies. (small, please!) Any animal past or present is fair game (what’s the weirdest thing you ever wanted to make a tiny plush version of??) or MLP, animal crossing (new horizons/pocket camp), Shaun the Sheep (she’s decided all the sheep are female), and Zelda:Breath of the Wild are her current fandoms.

I claim thanate for a giftcard to Urban Threads.

Hello! I’m Leann from Michigan. My husband and I have no children besides our furry dog, Hazel.

Allergens in my home: the hairy dog monster mentioned above

Things I am allergic to: nickel in jewelry

Favorites: rich jewel tones, black and white mixed with color, monochromatic, polka dots, ombre, greens, magenta, mustard yellow, and robin’s egg blue

Least favorites: animal prints, neons, pastels, licensed characters, florals, purples (even though I love magenta)

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 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).

Crafted items I would LOVE to receive (duplicates of any of these would be okay)

  • Zipper pouches – pencil size or larger (some I love are on my pinterest here: https://www.pinterest.com/leannavananna/crafties-id-love/zipper-pouches/)

  • Scrap fabric bunting or prayer flag – I’d love one for my craft room or for my cubicle at work

  • Embroidery or cross-stitch. I’d prefer them to not be in a hoop. I prefer them framed, so I’d like to receive any of these loose so I can frame once I receive them. I’d love one with any of these sayings: https://www.pinterest.com/leannavananna/signs/ or something from my positive affirmations board:

  • 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:

  • Anything specified from my Undercover Fandom board on pinterest. Items specified in each entry. T-shirts would need to be women’s M. https://www.pinterest.com/leannavananna/crafties-id-love/undercover-fandom/

  • Fingerless mitts in knit or crochet to wear in the office – I’d like some made with a non-bulky yarn. I have some now that I love, but the yarn is pretty chunky and they’re a bit bulky for typing at work. My hands are mediumish? Not quite sure how to measure them! I’d like the fabric to be pretty solid so they’re warmer. Examples of some patterns I really like are here: https://www.pinterest.com/leannavananna/crafties-id-love/fingerless-mitts/

  • Anything else off of my “Crafties I’d love” pinterest board not listed above would also be fair game: https://www.pinterest.com/leannavananna/crafties-id-love/

  • Handmade soaps or lotions

  • 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.

  • I can always use large totes or project bags for crochet or knit projects. I’d prefer the totes to have long straps so I can put them over my shoulder.

  • Unpaper towels - any colors or patterns would be good.

  • A loaded pocket (happy mail)

  • ATCoins (I prefer hand-drawn or colored)

Supplies I’d love to receive

  • Any yarns with the exception of fun fur, even partial skeins, especially weird or fun greens for making cacti
  • Mixed media art supplies that might be fun to try
  • Washi tape
  • Zippers for making zipper pouches
  • Stencils for gelli printing
  • Large buttons for adding to cowls or shawls
  • Old Issues of Cloth Paper Scissors
  • Cute crochet amigurumi books…used is fine
  • Black Tombow brush pen marker or something of equivalent
  • Any pattern from this shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/HainChan?ref=simple-shop-header-name&listing_id=703253946

I claim PrincessP. I am going to make a garden themed prayer flag.

Almost done with my other two claims so I will send those out tomorrow and keep on claiming. Everyone has such a great list that is inspiring me to craft during our new shut down and hurricane recovery.
