Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that
every participant meets these conditions: YES

All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!


DETAILS:
This is a finished item swap. Post a "shop" of at least 5 items for everyone else in the swap to choose from. All items should be finished and hand crafted. They do not necessarily need to be crafted by you,but do keep in mind that this should primarily be a shop of your handcrafted items! Please credit the creator by NAME for items you did not make. Supply option you can also post up to 4 supply items (non-crafted) Keep these items at the end of your shop.

What is a shop?
A shop is a post in this thread, listing the items that you have available to be claimed. As long as you can post a list of items, with pictures if at all possible, you have a swap shop! You can also manage your shop pictures on your own picture hosting and just post links in your shop post. It's up to you to keep your shop as up to date as possible by removing items that have been claimed (transfer pictures to the gallery) and posting any new items you want to add. Items in your shop should all have a 'price' between 1 and 3 points. Make sure it's clear how much each item costs and use a recognizable title if you can (for example: green sparkly scarf if there are more than one green sparkly scarf # 1)


RULES:
- The majority of the posts in this thread should be shops. That's what we all want to see, right? So let's try and keep all the discussion over here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=224411.msg2426412.0

claims
- When you claim an item, pm all 3 organizers (alteredmommy, lapoli, xladyluckx) AND the person you claim from. Claims will be first come, first served. The first person to send a PM to all four of the proper people IN THE PROPER FORMAT will get the item.
- Rather than keeping track of the number of claims, like the other ongoing swaps, we will be using a point system for this swap.
- When someone claims an item on your list and is confirmed by an organizer, you are responsible for removing that item from your shop post. There is a gallery that you can transfer your pictures to, see below for the link.
- When you send and receive an item, PM all 3 organizers (alteredmommy, lapoli and xladyluckx) AND the person who sent it to you.
- DC# are required on an object that is eligible for one if sending internationally please keep your postal receipt until your item is received.  If your item has not been received within a reasonable time (3-4 weeks domestic; 4-5 weeks international) an angel can be arranged if you have a DC# or postal receipt.  If not you will be required to remake or offer something else from your shop and resend.

points
Here are the most important things you need to know about your points:
-all persons NEW to the swap get 3 points to spend to start with; swappers from previous Shop the Swaps (from Round 2 to now) carry over their points to the next month they sign up for.  Round 1 had a different point structure, please let us know if that was the only STS round you were in.
- if you plan on leaving the swap at the end of the month please spend down your points to 3, you must leave the swap with the same 3 points you started with!!.
- Every time someone claims an item from your shop, you get the price of the item in points. ****You cannot spend your points until you have physically SENT the item and pmd the proper people****
- Every time you claim an item from someone else's shop you spend the amount of points in the price of the item.
- Once you have +7 points (TOTAL of current and pending), your shop will be temporarily closed for business until you have less than 5 points. Please edit your shop post to put 'CLOSED' in large bold letters to make it clear to everyone when your shop is closed. There will also be a list near the top of the thread with all the closed shops.
- Once you have 0 points, you can't claim any items until you have at least 1 point.
- The organizers will keep a running point total at the top of the thread, but you should keep track at the bottom of your shop as well. All claims from you and that you make for this round only must be listed there.
Please use this format:

Claims from me:
list all claims made to your shop

Claims I have made
list all claims you have made to other shops

POINTS
Started with: (how many points you started this round with)
Current: (how many spendable points you currently have)
Pending: (how many points you have from pending claims that you have not sent yet)
TOTAL: (the total of current and pending points-if this total is 7 or more you must CLOSE your shop until you can ship/spend down to 5 points or less)

How many points do I start with?
If this is your first round, you start with 3 points but you cannot spend these points until you have your shop opened!! If you were part of a previous round you'll start with a number of points based on how many points you had at the end of your last round.

Do I have to post pictures?
It's not required, but it's strongly encouraged. Good pictures will make people more likely to claim your items!

What size items should be in my shop? What size goes with what price?
You can put any size items in your shop, and you can charge whatever price is fair. If you really need a guideline, try small for 1 point, medium for 2 points, large for 3 points. But feel free to judge by other criteria like the expense of the materials, how much you enjoy making the item, how popular the item seems to be, etc.

Why does my shop close when I have 7 points? (TOTAL of current AND pending)
When you have 7 points, it means you've had several more claims against your shop than you have made yourself. We want to make sure that no one gets shortchanged, so once several items have been claimed from your list, your shop will be 'closed' until you catch up on claiming some things for yourself. We also want to make sure no one is 'hoarding' points, so we want you to spend your points and get them back out in the economy.

Why don't I get my points until I have sent my item?
There are several reasons for this. First of all, it's a good way for us to control how many claims you have going on at one time. If you don't get your points until your items are sent, you can't have a bunch of packages waiting to be shipped and still be making claims. It will also help protect our swap from anyone who might flake by not allowing them to make lots of claims if they aren't shipping their items. And it'll encourage everyone to ship on time, or even faster, so that they can get their points! We aren't waiting until items are received, because that will make it very difficult for international craftsters to participate in the swap.

What can I put in my shop post?
Can I put a wishlist? Can I take requests? Can I post embarassing pictures of my little brother?
The focus of your shop post, should be your shop! However, as long as you are keeping your shop the focus, and keeping it up to date, and keeping it stocked.... We don't care what you put in there! As long as you aren't breaking any rules of craftster, or any laws, go for it!

I want to do another swap, but the month isn't over, can you go ahead and give me my feedback?
In order to leave the swap early, you need to have at least as many points as you started with. You must have 3 points to leave this swap. If points are an issue after a close-out sale and posting in the thread, contact the organizers for further help. Once you do, you can go ahead and 'close' your shop. Then, after everything that had been previously claimed from you has been received, you can leave the swap and get your positive feedback.

My points/claims don't match what I think they should. Is something wrong?
If it has been more than 24 hours since you made the claim. Or if any of the organizers admit to having been drunk/sick/tired when we last updated the claims or points, go ahead and send us a PM. Otherwise, give us about 24 hours to get caught up with claims. If your claim is at least 24 hours old, and something seems wrong, feel free to send us a PM and ask. If your claim is several days old and something seems wrong PLEASE send us a PM to make sure we received the claim!

I think I have 7 points but you only show me with 6, am I closed? OR I think I have 6 points but you show me with 7, am I open? OR Why are my points still pending, I sent those items?
In general, if you have recently changed your points, you're probably right and the point total is probably out of date. When in doubt, it's fine to go with what you think your status is. It doesn't hurt to include a little note in any PM's you send letting us know, just in case there is an issue. (For example, "XladyluckX just claimed my peanut butter sculpture, but your list shows my shop as closed. I claimed a couple things recently so I think I should be open and this claim should be ok.") Now, since you are the person who is the most up to date on your own point total, help us out!! Please close your shop when you know you're at 7 points. Also, feel free to re-open your shop when you know you are at 5 points. And, if you've sent us a PM saying you sent items, go ahead and spend the points, even if they still show as pending points on the list.

What do I need to say in my PM's to the organizers??
please remember to include the send by date (one week from the claim date) in your send and receive pms

When claiming it needs to come to us looking like this:

make sure the To: box includes ALL the proper people in your pm ALL the organizers and the person you are claiming from/sending to/receiving from We need to see ONE message with everyones name on it to be valid! (hint- put quotes around each name except the last one you type)

When you claim it needs to look like this:
Subject: Shop the Swap 3 - CLAIM
xladyluckx to raynbow - sheepy soap - (1 pt)
dont forget your name and address!!

When you send it needs to look like this:
Subject: Shop the Swap 3 - SENT
Send By May 30th don't forget to put the send by date!
xladyluckx to raynbow - sheepy soap - (1)

When you receive it needs to look like this:
Subject: Shop the Swap 3 - RECEIVED
Send By May 30th once again, don't forget the send by date
xladyluckx to raynbow - sheepy soap - (1)

Claims must be in this format, or they will not be honored. If you DO NOT receive a claim in this format, please do not send the item. If you wish you can send the claimer a PM reminding them of the proper format for claims.

If you want to include a personal note in the PM as well, it's fine, but please make sure it is underneath the claim information.

You can include several claims in one post, but make sure each is listed seperately and that it is clear there are multiple claims.


Why do I have to list my claims in my shop? Aren't you keeping track of my points?
Yes! We are keeping track of your points, and in any disagreement, ours is the list that counts. But to make it easier to resolve any disagreements, we'd like to be able to compare your list of what you think you've claimed/has been claimed from you, and compare it to our list!
Also, if you keep a running list of your claims in your shop, it makes it much easier for people to look at your shop and figure out if you are open or closed, when the points list hasn't been updated in the last 5 minutes! Please see the first post about format!!

Questions??? just ask!!
alteredmommy general questions/help, feedback from shop the swap 7,8,9, 10
xladyluckx the ongoing claims list
lapoli the points list

open!


let it be known i have an 90lb dog that likes to sit on soft things and a 14lb cat that likes my yarn.  i am in north carolina.


Please note that due to the popularity of these soaps, I am making extra batches as needed.  Your soap may not be exactly as pictured here, but recipes are saved and duplicated as claims come in.

COMING SOON! "Love is like a box of chocolate... soaps" for your special someone on Valentine's Day (and these won't put inches on the thighs!)

new!!!


Spring Waves Hand Dyed yarn.  Soft greens and blues dyed on alpaca/acrylic blend that's wonderfully soft against the skin.  The 100g skein is approximately 120yards/110meters and is 15s=4" on US10 needles.  2 points.


Thank You Soaps! 6 in a set for 1 point.  These blue soaps are green-tea-cucumber scented, but I can do different colors/scents--PM me for a list of what's available.  Eliminate those boring-to-write thank you notes by saying "Thank You" in a way they won't forget! (Also available: a set of red, a set of green, a set of yellow, a set of orange, a set of purple... can customize scents!)  Each soap is enclosed in a clear plastic bag and closed with a paper tag so you can write your own thanks, too!  Perfect for post-holiday thank yous!


Lovely Lavender soaps. Each soap is the same, just the bar on the left shows the bottom detail.  Each soap is in a goat's milk base, scented with lavender essential oil and finished with sprinkles of dried lavender.  A very beautiful, elegant bar! Each 1/2 point.


Tranquility Bar.  Goat's milk base with dried chamomile leaves to gently exfoliate and nourish tired skin!  Scented with "Tranqulity" essential oil blend--a blend of tangerine, orange, benzoin, eucalyptus, litsea, ho wood, speariment, spanish  marjoram, cedar himalayan and sandalwood essential oils.  Each 1/2 point.


Choco-Mint Bar! This bar is very tempting to ALL senses! With cocoa powder and peppermint essential oil, this is one soap that's sure to please you! 1/2 point each.


Alphabet Soaps! Alphabet soup, alphabet soap. It's only natural you want to leave soap messages in the bathroom for others! OR, amuse yourself while in the bathtub.. Either way, these are tiny soaps (I didn't measure but I can if needed) and a set will include one of each of the alphabet and numbers 0-9.  Can't spell Craftster, but you COULD spell yarn ho.  Each set is 1 point. (This set is blue--can do other colors if requested)


Embedded butterfly soap.  This was difficult to get a picture of, but this clear soap includes a small resin butterfly in the middle. Great for children (as long as small objects WON'T be put in mouths!) or a fun project for the week. Smiley  There is only one of these currently available. 1/2 point.



marble soaps! each is pearberry scented. choose from the green marble or orange marble.  1/2 point/each.


Light blue fleur de lis.   A nice bayberry scent in a moisturizing goat's milk base. 1/2 point each.


Yellow bees! Honey almond scented with an olive oil base. 1/2 point each.


Green bees! Eucalyptus mint scented. 1/2 half point/each.


Lemongrass poppy seed bar! 1/2 point. Scented with essential oils.


Brown Sugar Fig Exfoliating bar.  1/2 point.  With natural apricot seed that acts as a gentle exfoliator.  Yuuuumm!


Bayberry scented soaps! I have never wanted to lick a soap so much, but I can assure you, these haven't gone near my mouth!  Wink  Each soap is a light purple color.  1/2 point.


Light purple soap is Japanese Cherry  Blossom scented! Just a hint of the cherry blossom with a nice subtle powder note, too.  1/2 point.


These cute button soaps are brown sugar and fig scented! 1/2 point each!  Yum!


Bar on the left is the same formula as the Earth Massage bar (below), but in a ergonomic half-circle bar.  The bar on the right is a spicy blend called the Fire bar.  This bar has cinammon-clove oil, a dash of natural cinammon and a bit of extra sparkle.  Each is 1/2 point.


The bar on the left is called Water Massage.  It's actually blue and has a nice, clean fragrance.  It also has a touch of glitter added.  1/3 point. The bar on the right is the Earth Massage bar.  It is an olive oil base, scented with sandalwood and pine fragrance oils with a hint of cinnamon.  1/2 point.


new!

Bug soaps! 1/2 point each, choose from blue or red dragonfly and yellow or green ladybug.  2 of these are lemongrass-scented.

new!

Tired of deciding between the dog and the iron while playing Monopoly?  Step your game up a notch and bring your own piece to the table!  Set of six, double-sided handdrawn game pieces that measure approximately 1 1/2" tall.  1/2 point.


OR, if people aren't your fancy, select the angry/expressionless/scared blobs! These are a bit smaller (varying in sizes, but just above 1/2" tall) and come in a set of 6.  1/2 point.




Two items here:

#1 - Fruit Baby Hat.  Can be custom with colors, but PM me first please to  make sure I've got time to get it out to you in a week! Smiley  Each hat is 2 points.

#2 - Mason Dixon Bib.  Can be custom with colors--just let me know what you want! Each bib is 1 point.

new! supplies!


Loteria Cards.  Set of 4 for 1/2 point.  Please specify which you want. (If you need help figuring out what pictures are, please PM me!)


Paper-Source printer-friendly 2 1/2" round labels.  Available in pool (left) or soft white (right).  Each package comes with 60 labels and if you've claimed any soap from me recently, you've probably seen these labels!  Each package is 1 point. Multiples available.


Chocolate brown Paper Source envelopes.  Choose from chocolate A2 envelopes (larger, in back) or chocolate 4bar (smaller, on top) envelopes.  Each comes 10/pack. 1  point each.

KREATIONS BY KRISTINE



Hello Fellow Crafters!  Welcome to my shop!
 
My home is smoke-free, but I do have a small dog (Jack Russell type). 

Let me know if you have any questions.

Here is what I have to offer:

-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

HERBAL INFUSIONS

These are my own herbal infusion (tea) recipes.  Each bag is filled fresh and sealed by me.  6 tea bags = 1/2 point  (mix and match).  ALL TEAS ARE CAFFEINE FREE.



1.  FABULOUS FRUIT:  Rasberry Leaf, Lemon Grass, Orange Peel
2.  FLORAL FANTASY:  Hibiscus Flower, Jasmine, Linden Flower, and Hydrangea Root
3.  SPICE UP MY LIFE: Anise, Clove, Ginger Root
4.  BEDTIME TEA:  Chamomile, Linden Flower and Passion Flower
5.  RED, RED ROSE:  Rose Hips, Rose buds, Red Root


Note:   If you would like a special blend, please let me know.  These are made when they are ordered so special orders are no problem!

In addition to those listed above, I have the following available: 

Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Bergamot, Dandelion, Elderberry, Calendula

-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

QUILTED CLAY EASTER EGGS! -- 1/2 POINT EACH

These eggs are covered in polymer clay.  Most are done in a quilting technique that I learned in a clay class.  Number 1 (blue, green, yellow) is actually a real egg.   I used a different technique on Number 8.  It is a coiling technique.  Each piece is hand coiled and then placed on the egg.  They are baked and sealed. 

EIGHT IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE!

The egg is perhaps the oldest and most universal symbol of rebirth and new life.




-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

CLAY INCENSE BURNERS! -- 1 POINT EACH


MOON, SUN & STARS



IMAGINE, DREAM WISH



-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

SLAVE BRACELET/HAND FLOWER! -- 1 POINT EACH



Click on thumbnail to see larger photos

Amethyst and Pearls



Amethyst is a purple-colored quartz used as a semi-precious stone.  It is known as a spiritual stone and is used for general healing and for meditation. Soothes and calms the mind, raises the spirit, rebalances and increases intuitive awareness, protects from negative vibrations.


LAPIS LAZULI AND PEARLS 1 POINT 16 inches



Lapis Lazuli is a brilliant blue mineral.  Helps acquire wisdom and truth. It is also a symbol of power and a mental and spiritual cleanser.  It is the stone of friendship. Helps cut through superficialities to find inner truth.

-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

BEADED PURSE 1 POINT

Backpack style, black purse.  I did not make the purse, but it is new.  I thought it was rather plain, so I embellished it with beads!

-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

CROCHETED BUTTERFLIES! ANY TWO = 1 POINT

I did not crochet these, but somebody did! (not on craftster).  They are truly beautiful!  They appear to have a light starch on them to help stiffen them.

Click on thumbnail to see larger photos





-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

TIGERS EYE NECKLACE 1 POINT  -- 21 inches with a 2.5 inch extension chain



Tiger-eye symbolizes Watchfullness, clear thinking, helps in manifesting will, courage, and confidence. It assists the user in forming clear and defined ideals around responsibility to relationship.


FRESHWATER PEARL & ADVENTURINE NECKLACE-- 16 inches



Aventurine is said to be excellent for releasing anxiety, boosting confidence, imagination, and perception. It is also believed to promote perception and better eyesight. Some people today believe that Aventurine helps you become more grateful, decisive, and a better leader.

-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

ARTWORK - 1 POINT EACH

These are my first "paintings" so I have priced them low to reflect my beginner's status!

SWALLOW - WATERCOLOR -- This is a watercolor on a 9x12 artist canvas.




The swallow represents love, care and affection towards family and friends, showing the loyalty of the person always returning to them.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

PAINTED JEANS

GOLDEN HIBISCUS-- 1 POINT

Thrifted, stenciled and painted jeans with a beautiful fluer-de-lis pattern topped with a little hibiscus flower.  I used the new spray fabric paint on these. Low rise, Junior Size 9, 3-button closure.



NOTE:  I will do custom orders on jeans.  If you have a pair of jeans you want customized, let me know.  You can send them to me and I will do my "dirty" work and send them back to you.  Or, let me know your size and I will post a pair.


PAINTED CHECKBOOK COVER


-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

SUPPLIES:

ONE (1) POINT SUPPLY ITEMS

PLUMERIA SACHET KIT (1 POINT)

Includes the paper sachet pouches, the potpourri, and the drawer liner. Really nice set.



JOURNAL -- (1 POINT)

This is a beautiful hard cover journal by Flavia.  It is named "Across the Porch from God".  It is a gratitude journal.  There is no scripture in it, just pages to who gratitude for what we have been given.  Here are examples of some of the pages.

Truthful Awakenings...The hardest questions to ask.

All Things PinkAndDinky

OPEN!

I share my smoke-free home with two kitties but I mostly keep my craft stuff out of their reach.

Half point items.


Pearl earrings (.5)
Gray freshwater pearls and peach glass beads on silver-plated earwires


Covered Button Ponytail Holder- .5 each
Only the poodle is available. It is on a Goody Stayput hair elastic.

Doily Angel- .5


Fancypants Ponytail Holder - (.5)
The two metal beads on this are very good quality heavy beads.


Butterfly Gift Tags and Flower Gift Tags- Set of 16 (.5)
All are on heavy cardstock and the butterflies are wooden. For a half point, get all you see in both pictures.



Nashville Craft Mafia bag (.5)



One point items

Pink Patched Tshirt- 1
This is made by the talented Penlowe. I bought it last round but sadly it is a little small on me and I don't really have anyone the right size to give it to. It is very cute and well made (on a high quality shirt) and definitely a great deal at 1 point since it was originally two. It is 34 bust, juniors 7/8.

Closeup of the cool detailing:


Light switch covers- 1 point each
All have a satin varnish to protect them from wear and dirt. Please provide the name of the one you want. Names are listed starting top left and going clockwise for each picture. If you want a set of any, no problem, just let me know. The only ones I can't make more of are "Vintage Fashion Ad" and "Red Shoes and Bike"

Vintage Fashion Ad
Collage
Red shoes and bike
Buttons (this one has three real buttons glued on in the corner)


Clockwise from left:
Little people
Scottie Dog
Pink cat  sold to ptarmicwumpus
Stripes and Dots


Clockwise from left:
Blue and cream- Claimed by Lapoli
Pink Shabby Chic
Heirloom Brown
Brown and blue circles


Iconic pen and ink drawing (1)
This is a 4x6 framed print of a drawing made by one of my artist friends.


Pink Tooth Box (1)
Leave a tooth for the tooth fairy in this cute box or use it as a place to keep your kid's baby teeth

Coordinating interior


Pajama/Comfy Pants (1)
These are khaki colored with pink flowers. The waist is 30 inches when it is not stretched at all and can stretch up to 41 inches. The inseam is 26 inches. They are about a size 8/10 and made to fit loosely.


Woven placemats with leaves. The placemats are from Target and I added the felt embroidered leaves. Set of 4 placemats plus leaf potholder: Reduced to 1 point



Flower card wallet (1)
This is just the right size for business cards, gift cards, or credit cards. I used interfacing so it is sturdy.

inside


Passport Cover with travel motif (1)
This fits a US passport. This one has been taken off the market but I can easily make more of these. PM me if interested.

inside:


Pink Arm Band Wallet (1)
This is cotton that is coated with something slick like vinyl. Lined with pink cotton. Great stocking stuffer!


Blue Arm Band Wallet (1)
This can hold money, keys, ipod, etc. while you exercise or don't want to carry a purse. It fastens with velcro and is adjustable to fit the upper arm of most adults. Lined with white cotton.
Great stocking stuffer!




Two Point Items

Light Green Saucer (2)
This is handthrown pottery glazed with a light green semi-gloss glaze.


Semi-gloss brown bowl (2)
This is handthrown pottery glazed with a semi-gloss brown glaze. Due to the high cost of international shipping, this item is limited to those with a US address. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Japanese pin cushion (2)
This is 2 points because it is an antique (I added the pin cushion top today though so that part is not  Smiley). In my opinion, what makes it so cute is its diminuitive size. It is smaller than an espresso cup and most egg cups, yet it is plenty big to hold a project's worth of straight pins.

As you can see from the bottom, it is fairly old.


Sundress (2)
I started this and my mom finished it this summer. I never wore it though because I decided it isn't me, but I still think it is quite cute. The top is 30 inches around the bust but is very stretchy. The length is 34 inches, excluding straps. It is about a size 8 but I think a 6 or a 10 could probably wear it too.



Three point items.
NONE AT THIS TIME

CLEARANCE
GET any 4 items in this section for 1 point!!!!

My house is pet & smoke free!

2 pt items:

Approx. 520m/568yds white cashcotton, divided into two whole balls of 130m/142yds each, and four smaller balls. Not an expert on dying, but I'd imagine it'd be good for that kind of thing...

35% Cotton, 25% polyamide, 18% angora, 13% viscose, 9% cashmere (2pts)




Green felted-bead bracelet (2pts)



1pt items:

Purple and red glass bead bracelet. Fits my 6.5'' wrist well, with a little room (1pts)



Grey cabled neckwarmer, knitted from a 30% wool, 70% acrylic blend. It has no buttons for the time being, so I can add them according to taste




Birdie embroidery. I can make it into something small, (pouch or cuff maybe?) or you can have it as is as a patch. For more points (negotiable!) i could make it a feature on a bag or something. About 3'' end to end (1pt)



Custom-made shop banner or forum avatar, anything goes as long as I can find images for it! (1pt)


1/2 pt items

Earrings! All 1/2 pt per pair, remember to specify which in your claim PM




Swimming(?) badges. I found these in a charity shop, and although I've kept some of my favourites, there are far too many for me! (1/2 pt the lot)




Lot of crochet flowers, circles and one granny-square. These were my practise, so they may not be perfect... (1/2 pt the lot)




Felt patches. Robot & random embroidery. (1/2 pt each)

THREE POINTS:

It is meant to fit me - 32" bust, 30" waist, 40" hip. This one is worn open, so there is some leeway with the fit - it will be best for someone with a B cup or smaller. I made this last fall, and only wore it once - there is nothing wrong with it, but it was a little warm and a bit too stiff for my comfort. Machine washable. (3)

OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!!
As you can probably tell from my avatar, there's a beagle in my house (that often comes in my crafting room with me). We are, however, a non-smoking household.

THREE POINT ITEMS
MOTIVATE ME TO KNIT KIT - 3 POINTS
Included in this kit:
  • a set of size 8 knitting needles
  • enough yarn (your choice of color) to knit one scarf
  • a tape measure
  • a custom binder designed around your chosen theme
  • a list of my favorite knitting websites (both for learning and for patterns)
  • printed text and illustrations to help you learn to knit (though one of the websites I'll direct you to has some awesome videos that may be more helpful for you)
  • 10 knitting patterns listed in order of "difficulty"

If you don't need any of these items (e.g. you already have needles and/or yarn or don't want the binder), let me know prior to your claim and we can discuss modifying the points, or I can make you some custom stitchmarkers. 

Here is a sample binder I just did for another swap - my partner liked skulls.




TWO POINT ITEMS
COOKIE MONSTER KNIT MINI-BAG - 2 POINTS
Knit bag, approximately 4.5"x5" plus handles; felt embellishments. Pics are a little blurry, that's a chocolate chip cookie on the back!
   

1 POINT ITEMS
RETRO BLUE OWL EARRINGS - 1 POINT - sold to p&d, but I can make more, just pm me!


FLOPPY DISK NOTEBOOK - 1 POINT
A notebook made out of two black floppy disks. Comes with white paper and is refillable. If you'd like mixed paper inside instead of the white, it'll be an extra 0.5 points. (The second pic is representative of the mixed paper insert. Please note the floppy disks will be black.)
   


MONOPOLY PUSH PINS SET - 1 POINT
Set of 10 push pins made with monopoly pieces. You get the race car, horse and rider, dog, bag of money, iron, thimble, ship, die and two houses. I'll even toss in a freebie motel that the glue softened so it's a little misshaped. When these are stuck into cardboard, you can see the green push pins (that the pieces are glued to) a little bit on some of the pieces.
     


MAGNETIC HEMATITE NECKLACE/BRACELET - 1 POINT
Gorgeous, handmade bracelet/necklace of hematite stones. Some believe the hematite stones have healing powers and can provide medical benefits to wearers. This piece has magnetic stones so no clasp is needed. Wear in any number of styles! There are two of these available.
 


SHARK ATTACK MINI-TOTE - 1 POINT
Received in a swap from the ever-talented Gavagai and it's uber-cute, but I've decided I have too many bags! Approximately 8"x10" with ribbon handles and coordinating lining.
 


MORNING! MINI-TOTE - 1 POINT
Received in a swap from the ever-talented Gavagai and it's uber-cute, but I've decided I have too many bags! Approximately 8"x11" with ribbon handles and coordinating lining.
 


PASSWORD T-SHIRT - 1 POINT
Made with iron-on letters (so make sure you wash inside-out and dry on low heat), this baseball-style t-shirt was inspired by one I saw here elsewhere on Craftster. Made with a new Fruit of the Loom t-shirt, approximately 36" chest.



BLACK & WHITE RETRO PILLOW - 1 POINT
Made of 100% cotton, this pillow is stuffed with a polyester fiberfill that is hypoallergenic and machine washable. If you'd like a set, please claim two of these for a total of two points and I'll make you another one with the same fabric.
   


CELL PHONE HOLDER - 1 POINT
A handknit cell phone holder (or any other small electronic device or stuff) with a super-cute paw print button! Pocket dimensions are roughly 3"x4" and these photos were taken with my verizon LG phone inside the pocket. The colors showing on my screen are darker than in real life - the yarn is a very nice mid-gray tone with flecks of darker grey and white.
 


ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHY - 1 POINT FOR ONE 8"X10" OR 1 POINT FOR TWO 5"X7"
All photos are professionally printed on archive quality paper. Please specify claims by name and size(s).
WATERFALL


D.C. SUBWAY


SOLITUDE


WHITE IBIS


BURST OF YELLOW


SUNBATHING


GIRAFFE


A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT


THE CORRIDOR - *only available as 5"x7"*


THE TREE - *only available as 5"x7"*



POINT ITEMS
OWL PIN - 0.5 POINTS EACH - TWO AVAILABLE Sold both to p&d, but I have enough supplies for 2 more, pm if interested.
Vintage plastic red flower, green button, owl button



HOLIDAY DOG GEAR AND HANDPAINTED MUSHROOM PLAQUE- 0.5 POINT TOTAL
Dog "necklace" is about 7" in diameter, unstretched. It is pretty tight on my 36 pound beagle, not-quite-choking-but-not-quite-comfortable, which is why we're selling it (and she's oh-so-happy to see it gone). The mushroom plaque is handpainted.
   


GRAB BAG OF HANDMADE NOTECARDS 0.5 POINT (FOR SET OF 3)
Select any 3 of the notecards listed below for just 0.5 point! Mix and match to your hearts content! All cards come with coordinating envelopes for mailing. (Please be as specific as you wish to be for example, if you want a specific ice cream card, let me know, otherwise Ill just pick for you!)

SPRING CHERRY BLOSSOMS (9 available)
Stamped, then handcolored with pencil


THANK YOU GNOME (1 available)



OWL THANK YOU'S (4 identical cards available)



FLOWER THANK YOU'S - 3 left



GNOME NOTECARDS
Colors are a little dark in the photo, the darkest is a dark navy blue.


RETRO NOTECARDS
   



SUPPLIES
Purple rectangle knifty knitter - 2 POINTS
Comes with instruction booklet and 1 loom hook (not pictured)



Heavy-duty patterned felt fabric - 1 POINT PER 1/2 YARD

Red with gold flourishes - 1 yard available

I've got vintage craft magazines and patterns (mainly knit & crochet), puzzle soap molds, scrapbooking fibers, ice cream buttons, acrylic yarn, seed beads, and some senior/senora orange cotton fabric.

Custom orders -
Amigurumi!  I have tons of patterns.  Let me know what you're looking for and I'll see what I can do.  Points negotiable.

Note2:  For items that come in a set (2 for a 1pt, 4 for 1, etc) feel free to mix. 

PDF amigurumi crochet patterns.  My own designs (please don't sell the patterns, or items made from them, but making items for swaps is of course allowed  Grin).  Suitable for advanced beginner.
Indicate which one(s) you'd like in your pm, and also provide your email address. - 1/2pt each

C.  Vintage-y blue floral/green geometric floral (14 inches)

Stuffed kokeshi doll, about 6 inches tall.  Her stiching didn't turn out quite perfectly (on the bottom), but she's still super cute and loveable!  I can add a ribbon or ring for hanging upon request.


Stuffed origami crane in a lovely purple plum blossom print (say that 3 times fast).  Fits in the palm of your hand.  This particular one is sold, but I have some in other fabrics - let me know if you're interested!  1pt

Mini Taggie Blankie.  I have a ton of these - too many to photograph.  Let me know what you're looking for and I'll probably have something similar!  1pt


Funny faces clutch/wristlet.  Perfect size for small wallet, keys, phone, etc.  Zipper doesn't match up perfectly, but you barely notice it and it works just fine.  1pt

 Welcome to the Laughing Lark! Open! 


I live in a non-smoking home with my hubby, three boys and a very big, and somewhat arrogant, fluffy orange tomcat. I keep Seymour out of my craft supplies as much as possible, so I don't have to brush orange fur off of everything. Wink

 To help our organizers, please copy just the bolded black text when claiming. Thanks!
Small pictures are clickable links to bigger images.


If I removed something from my shop that you were eyeing, I might still have it, so please PM me! Smiley

One Point! Pendants! A wood and opalite medallion, a purple kitty, a cherry quartz flower medallion, etc... (1)

One half point! Blue and purple earrings (1/2) These are glass-based pearls surrounded with howlite (I think it's howlite) dyed turquoise blue, little glass seed beads, and acrylic iridescent beads The earwires are surgical steel. These earrings were very fun to make!  Smiley


Gemstone pendant necklaces for 1/2 point!
These necklaces are made with plated base-metal chain. Some of the chains came with beads already on them. Beads you see on the chain itself are acrylic. These are fun little gift necklaces, or good casual work jewelry. I made all the pendants. Some of these have clasps; others just slip over your head. Click the photos for a closer look. They are all fairly longish. I can measure if you like. I was trying to get my photos done while Ian napped, and did not take the time to measure them. Wink

The purse is unlined, 12" across at the base, 10" across at the top, and about 8" deep. The knitted cord strap is about 32" long.

Katxena's Shop

CLOSED!
I am out of town from Feb 27 to March 3.  My shop will be closed until I return (and spend some points)

All items are from my smoke free home in the USA.  I have two cats who get into everything.  Please feel free to PM me with any questions you have. 

_____________________

Handcrafted Items

Denim & Crochet Brooches


These look great on a coat or a purse, or for hanging on a bulletin board or dresser or anywhere else you need the sunny cheer of a flower. Features a crocheted wool flower, button accent, and denim backing with hand embroidered blanket stitch.  The back is nicely finished with felt and a pin back closure. Size approximately 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter.

(please include brooch # in your claim!!!)

Pale Yellow (brooch #3).  1/2 point. Pale yellow flower with purple button accent and red stitching.




Just red (brooch #4).  1/2 point. Dark red flower with a shell button and denim blue stitching. 




Crocheted Flowers

These flowers are hand crocheted by me.  They do not have pin backs -- I find that the best way to attach them is with a safety pin, which I'll leave it to you to provide.  Smiley

Purple flower -- acrylic.  1/2 point. A cheerful spring flower with a ceramic button in the center (the button is not shiny in real life, that's glare).


When selecting a half point item, please choose two so point totals remain in whole numbers.


Quilted Potholders 2 points for the pair
A pair of matching teddy bear potholders.  These are backed with denim fabric and feature an inner layer of heat resistant fabric and nice thick batting.  They are about 9x9 inches (23x23 cm)

Teddy Potholders:



Handknit washcloths 2 points each
These washcloths are handknit by me of 100% cotton yarn.  They feature a crocheted edge helps them retain their shape and last longer.  I use them to wash my face, because the cotton is just rough enough to exfoliate without scratching (I have extremely sensitive skin).  Other people use them as dishcloths or dustcloths. They are great no matter what you use them for.  They are approximately 9x9.5 inches (roughly 23x24 cm).

Washcloth #1: Pink and Orange


Supplies

I'm offering several packs of collage supplies.  These are all from my personal stash.  I collected everything you see here for use in my own mixed media collage work, but I am simply running out of room, so I thought I'd share!

Foreign Language Pages -- with Spanish (1 point)
Foreign Language Pages -- without Spanish (1 point)

This is an incredible assortment of 30 pages from non-English books.  Each pack includes a grab-bag assortment of about 10 or 12 languages, including Russian, French, several Asian languages, Hungarian, and more.  Since many people can get Spanish language books, I'm offering one pack with Spanish and one without Spanish.  There are no newspapers or magazines in this assortment.  I have one of each (with Spanish and without Spanish) to offer at this time.  The picture below is representative of the pages you'll receive:

Sansa's Swap Shop


Smoke and Pet Free Home

Ready Made

Three Point Items 

Dragon Scarf (3)



Body is 2.5 inches wide. Head is 4 inches wide. Total length 34 inches. Hand Knit. Green belly is 100% wool. Black back is 50% acrylic 50% tencel



Butterflies Singlet Style Grocery Bag (3)
14 inches high by 12 inches wide not including handles. Comes with zippered pouch to put folded bag inside. I have more of this fabric.


Two Point Items



Pirate Lil outfit sized to fit Blythe doll. Modelled by a Bratz doll. Points back guarantee if it does not fit for some reason, though it should since I got gauge before knitting. Sold to DropDeadSuzie

Butterfly Satin Lined Bag (2) Lined with White satin. 7 inch square based bag with wrist strap and drawstring closure. Handy for holding knitting projects. Distance from base to drawstring approx 12 inches. In the pic, twelve balls of wool and a ten inch pair of knitting needles are tucked away.



Totable Tote Butterfly/heart(2)





Left and right totes measure 14 x 9 x 4.5 inches unfolded. Folds to 6 x 5 inches. I had to rotate the pattern piece on the middle one, so it must be 9 x 14 x 4.5 inches ie. It is shorter and wider than the other two. Lining is same as handle fabric on right tote. The other two are pink/white stripe lining.

Left purple bandana tote SOLD

I have kept the position the same in both pics, so each tote has one heart and one butterfly.

One point Items



Geisha Crochet Hook Roll (1)


Panta from hand dyed yarn by Penguino. Velcro not stitched down in the pic but it will be before I send. 18 inches not including the tabs which are approx. 2.25 inches long.


Panta from varigated brown yarn 50% wool  iirc. I used a smaller hook on this one as I thought the first one was a bit large. 16 inches not including the tabs which are approx. 2.25 inches long.

Foundation pieced cockatoo quilt block (1) 6.5 inches unfinished for 6 inches finished. Foundation remains in block.





Twelve x twelve inch sewing notions bag (1)



Black Spotted Compact Stitching Case (1)




Barbie Totable Tote - Small (1)




Measures 6 inches wide x 9.5 inches high unfolded and 5.5 x 4 inches when folded

Lining fabric is a different Barbie fabric covered with hearts.




Barbie hostess apron. Base white linen fabric covered with gauzy pink Barbie themed fabric. This lay nice and flat but I had to embroider over the seams due to the nature of the pink gauze and now it curls at the edges. To test it, I washed and ironed it before taking this picture to ensure no fraying. This is adult sized and the waistbag is 17 inches. The ties are approx. 40 inches long. Made from an original 1969 pattern.

SHOP OPEN

I'm located in California, and no pet nor smoke.  However, I live with my BIL, who does smoke.  He smokes OUTSIDE, but as I'm sensitive to Cigarette smells if he comes into the house freshly from smoking the cigarette smell lingers for a bit, but he's not home too often.  I don't ever smell smoke on my craft items, but i feel that since I am super sensitive to smells I should disclaimer that plus i feel like each home smells differently anyway, so things coming from other houses will just have a smell, but that is just me.
Thanks for shopping, I hope there is something that you like!

...Stay tuned for next round... Quant
One Point

NEW

Cable Hat, fits snuggly & v. soft. in light green color.



Personalize your own button ring, 2 letters can be glued onto the button, just let me know which letters you want, or if you only want 1 letter that works too.


blue ring


Green orb stitch marker to fit up to size 10.5 needles.

3 Points
NEW

I'm adding a new hat to my repertoire of hats, foliage from knitty.  Your hat will be also in wintergreen, this is from the extra yarn that i have left over on the one that i made above.


Red Heart Soft Yarn Brown

Vanna's Choice Honey
These will be made to order, I will be cranking these out when claimed, please let me know if you need that hat to be made large or small, otherwise, i'd just make it average.


Readily Color choice for Owl hat:  Red Heart Soft Yarn Seafoam, Red Heart Soft Yarn Brown like the 1st owl hat.

Brown & seafoam aren't your colors?  Looking for something else?  I might just have something in the stash that will do, why don't you drop me a line and we can discuss what colors you'd like.  thanks for the claim.

colors, White & Aqua(i think) medium Underwear.  Personally these ride up when worn, but that could be because i have a large behind or maybe the underwear is too small.  These of course are NEW.  (it sorta feels kinda dirty to be displaying the underwear... so i think I'll just link it.)

CLOSED!

~ Msviolaceous' Den of Iniquity ~

I am located in the United States, and I have a really fluffy dog, and a cat who likes to jump on whatever I'm working on.



Handdyed Spinning Fiber!

Lagoon. 2 oz. Columbia/Dorset 100% wool top. It's a relatiely inexpensive wool, so it's not as soft as some others, but it is definitely soft enough to spin, and should also felt well. I threw this together with some leftover bits of dye, and I'm thrilled with how it came out! Two points.


Blueberry Guts. 2 oz. squishy Merino top. There is oe more available. This one didn't fluff up as much as the others did after dyeing, but it will puff up when you draft it! Two points.


Box of Crayons. 3 oz. Columbia/Dorset 100% wool top. There are six colors in the pack, and you get roughly 1/2 oz. of each. Only one pack left! It's a relatiely inexpensive wool, so it's not as soft as some others, but it is definitely soft enough to spin, and should also felt well. Use this to enhance your color palette for needle felting or wet felting, or just spin it into rainbow yarn! The blue and purple separated out, just because those dyes like to do that, but when you draft the fibers (pull them apart to loosen them up) that will blend up a lot. Three points.




Evergreen Headband. Hand-knit arrowhead lace, from delicate Rowan wool yarn with tweedy bits. Approximately 17 inches in length by 2 inches wide, with 10.5 inch ties (lots of stretch, so it'll adjust to fit most any adult head, and probably teens as well.) Care instructions: hand wash in cold water and either lay flat to dry or pin it to a flat surface under some tension to show off the lace ("blocking.") Three points.




Hand-Dyed Yarn! Dyed by me with food coloring and possibly some kool-aid.

Really Old Candy Cane (on the left in the photo). 100% wool (Paton's Classic Merino), 100 grams, 223 yards. 4''=20 stitches on size 7 needles. This yarn will self-stripe with some subtle watercolor variation in the colors. Two points.




Handspun Yarn! Coming soon.



Oddments Button Bobby Pins. I was going to make these mismatched bobby pins and have them claimed individually, but in the end I liked the pairs I was able to put together. Choose from royal purple, earth tones or zebra. These are vintage buttons glued securely onto the standard heavy bobby pin finding. They are thicker and stronger than the standard hide-in-your-hair type of bobby pin. One-half point per pair.




Magic Hat Pins. The funkiest treasures from my bead stash on super-long stick pins - 8 inches long by default. However, I can make them as short as you like. The 8-inch pins will have a nailhead at the end, but if I shorten them I will make an eyelet stopper. See Tomato Teal as an example. One half point each.


From left to right: Stargate, Blue Swoopy, Starky, Tomato Teal, Icing, Verdant, Sceptre, Fade, and Bloopy. PM me for better pics of any of them.





Ladybug Anklet. Sterling-plated chain, wire wrapping, and lobster clasp, with glass beads. Adjustable from 9 to 11 inches. Custom sizing (and conversion into a bracelet) available upon request. One point.




Junk Food Earrings. Acrylic charms on chunky silver-plated chain with sterling french hook earwires. Choose from pizza/cokes and hamburger/french fries. One point each.





Jean Blue Button Bracelets in two sizes. Though they are each adjustable, one is sized and proportioned for a 5-6 inch wrist (modeled on my 5-inch wrist), and the other for a 7-8 inch wrist (modeled on my mineral water). The bracelets feature vintage buttons attached to a silver-plated chain with silver-plated wire wrapping and a silver springring clasp. The buttons may look black in some of the pictures, but the only colors involved are denim blue, cobalt blue, navy blue, and white. 1/2 point.


Small:




Supplies!

Araucania Quellon Yarn. A brilliantly soft viscose rayon and cotton chenille yarn. 161 yards per big 100 gram skein. Colorway #2, with varigated peach tones. The second photo is pretty true to color, but I left the first photo up so you can see the subtle varigations in the yarn. I have two extra skeins, but note that they have already been wound into balls. Also, this yarn has no dye lots. The two skeins I have should be pretty close to each other, but alternate balls to minimize striping if you want to use both on one project (no need to break the yarn, just carry it at the edge.) I made the ruffled collar from No Sheep For You from one skein with plenty left over. One skein would be enough for an ascot, two for a scarf. Two points per skein.





Thanks for visiting!

COMING SOMEDAY: Copper Cascade earring line, more handspun yarn, more handdyed yarn, designer ribbon headbands, and wine charms.

Wishlist: Tiny realistic polymer clay avocado charms.

Starting points: 4

Current points: 6
Pending points: 3
Total points: 9

February Claims:

Miss Violaceous to Legerdemain - Blueberry Guts - 2 points.
Miss Violaceous to mimiw - Box of Crayons - 3 points.

I come from a non-smoking, no pet home. I am in Chicago.

New! Owl Notebook (1 point)
Sold! Thanks DropDeadSuzie!

This is a recycled, high quality sketchbook/journal (blank pages) that I added this owl to. He is painted on various papers and then collaged on. The notebook is approximately 7" by 7". Close up: (there's a glare on here, it doesnt have that in real life)



New! Flower Cards (All 5 for 1/2 Point)

These are high quality cardstock cards with matching envelopes. They have collaged flowers (from scrapbooking paper).

[b]NEW![/b] Birdie Painting! 2 Points.SOLD! Thank you mimiw!

This is a new painting I've just done. It's an 8 1/2" X 11" stretched canvas. It's a mixed media piece (the clouds are actually pages from a Finnish book and the bird's body is all different kinds of paper I've painted). Here's a close up of the little guy:




1/2 Point Each: These are 6 pendants I created, inspired by some recent trips to Anthropologie. They are each about 1.5 inches high by 1 inch wide. Here is a picture of them with the flash (as some of the colors are better rendered there):



Here are descriptions, in numerical order:
  • 1. "Smokey Lavender":with white and grey specks (looks like stone)
  • 2. "Pink Lemonade": Textured pink clay baked with subtle glitter and yellow matte glaze over the top.
  • 3. "Pink Flowers": Peony pink with light pink flowers and grass
  • 4. "Violet": Deep purple with white/pink flowers
  • 5. "Blue Paisley": Sky blue with pearlescent clay, black paisley design
  • 6. "Golden Garnet": My personal fave  Smiley It's a deep red with gold clay marbled with 3 black flowers painted on top.

Supplies:

Clear bamboo-style Purse Handles (Plastic/Acrylic): 1/2 Point





Set of 3 dichroic glass pendants and coordinating beads. 1/2 point for each pendant w/ coordinating beads.
