I have been approved for this swap and this is my first claim.
From mrs.benjimadden I want to claim a homemade soap. (I'm an animal-lover too, so I will give it to my beauty-product-seeking mom, who is not.)
Here's what I have to offer:1.
Recycled blank journals I make from salvaged office paper and magazines images - 4 journals per claim. I have made more of these than I know what to do with, and have lots of designs. I don't have a good picture of them right now, but they're a Japanese glued format I don't see very often. 2
. Enough paper ephemera to make your head spin! I can stuff a manila envelope with surprises or you can tell me the kind of items or eras you're looking for.3.
About 15 sheets of 12x12" scrapbooking paper. 4.
Two gaudy safety-pin bracelets. The smaller one is with purple sequins and clear beads, the larger one is with irridescent reddish plastic beads and brown glass beads.http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/75773scan008.jpg5.
Four needlework pattern booklets/pamphlets from the early 1980s. One claim for the 4 of them. The last one has lots of designs and pages, but the other 3 contain only the patterns shown on the covers:6.
An approx. 6x6" needlepoint on Aida cloth that says in dainty letters, "F*** your gender". (The actual piece has it spelled out, and I'm not posting a photo for obvious reasons.) 7.
Ink stick for Chinese/Japanese calligraphy (thank you Craftsters for identifying this for me).
