It's taken me so long to get through just one Teesha Moore patch project -- and I'm not even done -- so offering these bags for 1 point is a phenomenal steal.

Crazy busy few days and I haven't had time to sit and update the points, today I'm cooking turkey dinner for 20 people (late Thanksgiving dinner) and am hoping that I have time later on this evening to get to it.  Unless I drink too much wine with dinner, then it will be tomorrow morning Cheesy

Go for the wine, AM - we can wait.  Wink

Those flavors sound wonderful! As far as points, I think the 2 to 3 range, definitely for shipping.

My shop is now open, but coinciding with this, I've found that the camera on my new tablet really stinks.  Tongue Sometime when we're both home during daylight hours, I'll get my partner's phone and take some better shots of the new offerings in my shop. (No, I don't have a smartphone  Embarrassed) I have a few more things to add to the shop, and various other things that will get added in the coming weeks if I stay focused and finish them.
16  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: STS Winter Market **Shops** (SU to Oct 10; closes Nov 24) on: October 11, 2014 06:56:12 PM

This California-based shop is OPEN

Items crafted and stored in a house with no pets or smokers.

Take any single half-point item FREE with a full-point purchase

...HERBAL... (International restrictions may apply)

White Sage - grown in my garden without pesticides, this California native plant is widely considered sacred and burned for purification and blessing. Unsustainable wild harvesting of white sage is rapidly wiping out the plant, so native plant advocates are urging consumers not to continue purchasing the bundles brought in from the mountains. I can either send you a "wand" of the white sage (I cut a length off the top of the plants and then bind the leaves and stem together to dry), or the equivalent amount of loose leaves. --  half a point

Dried Rosemary - grown in my garden without pesticides. Use for cooking, or add to incense, sachets, potpourri or infusions. I'll send the cleaned, dried herbs removed from the woody stems so you get more in a small container than could probably be used in a year. -- free with any purchase


Crochet Yoga Bag with Detachable Strap - Various acrylic and handspun yarns. Drawstring closure. There are loops on the outside for attaching your keys or whatnot, and enough space inside to stow a towel too. Strap works for a yoga prop, too. Because I'm rather fond of this bag: 3 points

Crocheted Infinity Scarf - Photos show full length and doubled-over. All acrylic yarns, plus a little sparkle. I'll be adding a red/black/gray version soon. -- 1 point

Handspun Capelet/Wrap - knit and spun from undyed, 100% alpaca fiber, with a bit of embroidery with metallic gold yarn (easily removed if you don't like it). Slightly fulled, but stitches still visible. About 4ft long when laid out flat. Removable i-cord to adjust how it fits; without i-cord it can be a child-sized wrap or a table-runner. I used Renee Van Hoy's 'Simple Lace Wrap' pattern. -- 2 points

Plarn Hanging Guerrilla Gardening Pods - made from grocery bags, these little hanging pouches can be stuffed with soil and a plant cutting and left in a place that needs some life. -- half point for both

Crocheted handspun pouch - button closure - just the right size for a gift card --  half a point


Bedroom/Art Studio sign - For the artist with minimal space, this cross-stitch can be framed, hung on the door, and flipped one way or the other, depending on what the room's being used for in any given moment. (: -- 1 point with no frame (If I can find suitable framing materials here, I'll update this)

A Christmas Story ornament set - mini cross-stitch hoops (about 2.5" diameter) with attached hooks at top. Soft red fabric covering the backs. -- 2 points for the set


Large Vintage Ephemera Journal - This is one of my pride-and-joy book creations that came out of a collaboration with sheepBlue a long time ago. Pages are approximately letter-sized and pieced together of various favorite oddments I'd collected, many being vintage and/or international. Cover is a sturdy specialty paper in an old-fashioned floral/tree design. Pages are sewn, with buttons added to the spine. -- 3 points

'Virgin' recon journal - mixed paper sewn journal made from 1920s book. Over 100 pages. Because the cover and spine are well-worn, I added two closure ribbons so you can tie the book closed for added security. 1 point


Claims made from me:

calluna to sheepBlue - Gourdy handspun - 1 point
calluna to RaraAvis - Sari silk crocheted vessel - 1 point
calluna to squidget - Tranquility handspun - 1 point (+ free mug cozy)
calluna to squidget - Go-go handspun - 1 point (+ free sage)

Claims I have made:

brandyk to calluna - 3 flannel cloth menstrual pads (2 teal, 1 pink) - 2 pts
                          - 1 bar pumpkin bread soap - 1 pt
Grab a coffee to calluna - felt flower - 1 pt

Started with: 3
Pending: 1
Current: 2
Total: 3

Wishlist: prepped fiber batts for spinning; sparkly fibers (ie angelina, starfire) or other miscellaneous spinning inclusions; cloth menstrual pads with snap closure; edibles; natural health/beauty/cleaning/household products (especially soap)

Ay, you guys and your wondrous assortment of offerings [wagging finger at you]...I was going to not join (even though I had the basic html worked out for my shop in a notepad file), and justified it with various reasons. Then I checked everyone's shops one more time, and I got greedy looking at all the greatness. Must get my hands on some of that (or at least get into the pool to be eligible).

So I'm in, right under the wire. I have enough items to open shop, but I need to take more photos first. And that won't happen until Monday or a bit later...I'm still in Mexico.  Cool I aim to have 1-2 WIPs finished and added by the end of this month.

Hi strangers!  Cool I'm *considering* signing up, but I'll need to toss it around a little more. Life's super-busy and I've been letting myself get too stressed and overwhelmed, so it isn't an ideal time to get back into swapping, but I do miss you guys.  Smiley What tiny amount of art/craft I've been doing is more personal in nature. I do have a few big projects from ages ago I may be able to complete for the sake of STS...probably no custom items, though.

I'm going to be in Mexico all of next week; I could bring back some crafty things to "sell" here if anyone is looking for something in particular. I'll be in a very Mayan area; there isn't as much of the kitschy Day of the Dead and loteria goodies. I'm hoping to encounter some textiles.

Also, I have a large amount of dried rosemary and lavender I could offer, as well as home-grown white sage bundles/leaves for burning (most store-bought white sage is actually wiping out this plant in the wild, so garden-grown is the way to go!). Maybe mixtures of these and other good-smelling herbs for incense. I'm brewing my first tinctures right now as well, and may be making some vanilla extract; too bad lapoli isn't still here to guide me.  I'll have to check on the international postal rules for all this stuff, though.

I'm definitely in the market for canned goods, and the other big request I'd have are cloth menstrual pads that have wings with snap closure.

Wow! I'm so glad I finally logged on, and clicked on the first image I saw.  Smiley Needless to say, jungrrl, you have a special place in my crafty heart and I think I'm going to have to trek to another Renegade just to wish you well in this new endeavor. You have rocked, you currently rock, and will continue to rock, going from one dream-job to a new dream-job. I'm excited for you!  Kiss

Hi all! I haven't had home-internet most of this year and have been crazy-busy with work and school, so I'm neither making much nor craftstering much, and not swapping at all...but hi! I hope to return in the future, I miss y'all!
