Mermaidcafe Market
OPENthis is my first time doing this swap, so please let me know if something is unclear/incorrect Smiley
the crafts were all made by me, and the supplies were not (unless specified).  I really enjoy upcycling, so a lot of crafts that I do include reused parts of other things that were not fulfilling their fabulous potential! Smiley
I live in Victoria, B.C.
my roommate smokes occasionally in the home, although it is usually out on the patio.

Earrings (.5 points)
all earrings are made using sterling silver pierced-parts, to avoid allergy/sensitivity issues.
please specify:
.:. pink .:. black .:. pink&black .:. green .:. green&black .:.

papercrane earrings (1 point)
the papercrane earrings are made of scrapbooking paper to ensure that they are durable enough for wear.  This also means they can be made in tonnes of colors/patterns!
if people have requests for the crane earrings, let me know and i can do some in different patterns/colours Smiley

Sugar Cookies (12 for 1 point, 30 for 2 points) - these will always be sent at the latest one day after they are made Smiley

winter holiday cards with envelopes (10 for 1 point)
a set of 10 in this snowflake style - if you have requests for colours, let me know!


beads (.5 points)
 random beads that i have and don't have a use for.  they fill a measuring cup up to 1 cup, to let you know how much is here Smiley

apple seed beads (.5 points)

animal beads (.5 points)

extras! (0 points, one free with each item purchased Smiley )

this fish squeezes, and so would probably make a good bath toy, etc

fish and spider
both of these are plastic and would maybe be good for glue-gunning to something?

claims made from me:
claims I have made:
started with: 3
pending: 0
current: 3
total: 3

for my ani difranco/music theme! a jounral covered in lyrics of hers!  a few of my favourites made it onto here Smiley

for my hippie theme! a patchwork skirt!  it's a drawstring top, so it fits wonderfully - i wore it to my friend's house the other day, and he was pretty impressed!

for my theme of sustainability! a big, beautiful scarf made of recycled yarn!  to put it to scale, that's my couch it's on!

thank you so much for this swap!  i had tonnes of fun!
