Details of swap:
If you a) have crafts lying around that you've made
    or  b) want to de-stash supplies or
    or  c) enjoy making things for other people
...then this swap is for you! It's a lot like the Ongoing Wish Swap, except instead of posting what you want to receive, you'll post what you want to give.  To join you must have at least five things that you have made/would like to make/want to trade.

This is an ongoing swap, feel free to join up at any time this month! To join, first send a Personal Message to organizer gavagai with the following questionnaire info. Once you are approved, you are free to claim something (i.e. one item) from the most recent list posted, and then post your own list, someone claims from it and the swap goes on like that, like a chain. Please note that you will need to add things to your list and/or reduce prices (maybe let people pick two things instead of one) if noone claims from your list for a couple of days. We want to keep the swap going!

...and that's it, basically

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you want to participate, information to send to organizers

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap:Ongoing Offer What You Have Swap - January 2010
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? (you must be to join):  (*Please note that this means you have to be willing to send ANY item from your shop out of the country*)
Confirm that you are at least 18 years old (and please mention how old you are if under 18) (yes/no):
Your list of at least five items (crafts you can make/have ready-made or details of supplies you wish to offer), detailed description not necessary:
Have you read the swap info (in this post) carefully and commit to follow the rules of the swap?:
Do you agree to add things to your list and/or reduce prices if noone claims for a couple of days, and keep doing so until claimed, doing your best to keep the swap going?:
Have you made sure to post in the new 2010 discussion thread for this swap?:


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a 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, if Craftsters decide to organize a new round at that time.

Remember your outstanding claim limit for this round:
Friend of Craftster: Three
First-Time Swapper: One
Everyone Else: Two

This is how many pending at a time you may have. As soon as one of your packages is received then you may claim again.

Your list of offerings: if your list stays up for more than 48 hours before someone claims from it, you must add something to it. You can also allow claimers to add more items together to make a claim (i.e. they don't seem to be biting on your earrings, so now they can take two pairs for a single claim instead of just one.) If you are having trouble coming up with stuff to add, consider offering a small item to be custom made for the person who claims from you. This can be conditioned on using stash items if you wish. Remember that it must be something that you can complete in two weeks, unless your partner agrees otherwise.

Once someone claims from you, you have two weeks to get the package in the mail.  Please contact the organizer by personal message when you send the package and when you receive a package so everyone gets credit.

ALSO: Please make sure to post to the discussion thread so you stay up on any updates!

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

Do not sign up unless you are willing to send outside of your country.  This means that you will be willing to send ANYTHING in your list out of the country, if claimed.  Please do not list items as "US only."  If you feel that an item is too heavy to send internationally, please do not list it in your shop.  

Check out the previous rounds if you need help figuring out the scope of what to put on your list. It is typically in the $5-$15 range, from a half a yard to a couple yards of fabric depending on weight and fanciness, crafted accessories, grab bags of yarn, beads, buttons and notions, things of that nature.

Photos and the Gallery: Whenever possible, include pictures of the items you're offering in your posts. When you receive, it is important for you to thank your partner, be courteous and communicative, but a lot of the items are premade or stash, so posting pictures in the Gallery isn't crucial. The exception to this is when something is custom-made for you in this swap. And if you make something with supplies you receive in this swap, we want to see it!

Delivery Confirmation numbers are mandatory for people in the U.S. sending to other people in the U.S., and everyone else must keep their receipts.

This round of the swap will close around midnight, on the official Craftster clock, December 31:st. Feedback will (ideally) be given on January 1st for all participants who have no pending claims. Everyone whose packages haven't been received will get feedback once the package reaches its destination.

Reminders/Summary:
1. Make sure to PM the organizer and who you sent to when you send out, with DC number if you are both in US.
2. Make sure to PM the organizer and who you receive from when you receive.
3. As soon as you claim something from someone, shoot them a PM with your address so that they have it and don't have to chase you down later.
4. Lets keep this swap moving, Please try to stay on top of adding new things/combining items into one claim if your list stays up more than a couple days, or the organizer will hunt you down and remind you.
5. Post pics in the gallery if someone makes you something custom or you make something from supplies you receive.
6. Lets try to keep this thread for lists as much as possible to save on confusion. If your list is up, you may post a "bump" after you have added something new/combined your items, but otherwise please try to post all questions/comments/requests/whatever into our discussion thread .

I would like to claim dragonflywer's book c. Julie Hasler 500 alphabets.

I am in California, with a fuzzy dog (not the one in my avatar, though--much less fuzzy), neither of us smoke, I avoid smoke, and there is no indoor smoking at this house.

My offerings:

Take 1 of these:

"Burlesque Boudoir" handspun art yarn - multiple yarns spun together, incorporating black lace, fake pearls, sequins, and feathers. Not a lot of yardage. The yarn sat sealed up in a London postal warehouse for a month and was never picked up by my swap partner, so I've been airing it out since then. http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/75773_07091010.JPG http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/75773_07091011.JPG

"T-kettle" mini altered canvas set - 4 little bitty canvases; 2 have a purple-green sheen (interference paint) which doesn't show up in the photos.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/75773_31Oct09_teakettle.jpg

- Flat-Rate envelope stuffed with paper/ephemera - vintage goodies, handmade paper, book pages, weird randomness, most images too big for ATCs. there will be embellishments, too, maybe some handspun yarn as well. Let me know your preferences and interests and I'll customize it for you.

- Small-Flat-Rate Box-of-Whimsies - same idea as the above, but more 3-dimensional. (: beads, vintage buttons, trims, notions, findings, oddities...y'know, whimsies.

- crocheted kerchief beautifully made by farmgirljane. I absolutely love it but somehow the shape of my head and my copious large hair don't allow it to sit right when I'm wearing it.

- 6 unopened packs of Sculpey III (polymer clay). Colors: Pink Pearl, Gray-Intermediate, Flesh (2 packs), Maroon, and Pearl. They'll need some major kneading, as all unhandled polymer clay does; I don't know how old they are because I bought them second hand but they don't feel brittle.

- Joker needlework - approx 4x7”
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/75773_jokerxstitch.jpg

- Burlesque bookmark - x-stitch on aida cloth with black lace and microbead trim and big tacky feather sewn on. I made this for a swap but the recipient disappeared and the package was sent back to me.

magnetic mail holder - hard plastic, altered surface. Rescued from its earlier life as an ugly early-80s Avon item with a bland cutesy neighborhood on the front. Now it's got a goldish/bronzy finish on the visible portions, and lots of embellishment (mail-related) all over the place. There is a small area partitioned inside for pens and such, and the whole thing has a depth of about 1.5 inches. It has magnets on the back so it can sit on the fridge, and it also has holes for nails if it would go better on your wall.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/gold3.JPG http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/altered090.jpg

recon’d vintage children’s textbook to CD holder - can hold 28 CDs and several liner note booklets. Bright colors, retro children’s theme, has a notepad inside and free space for adding personal embellishments. Manu Chao not included.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/100_10731.JPG


Take 2 of these:

- set of 5 molded crayons from scrap-crayons - mixed colors, same shapes as these
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/swapshop_007.jpg

- 50 sheets of off-white vellum paper, 8.5x11", can be run through some printers

- baggie of dried lavender - US only due to international shipping regulations.

- vintage cake toppers - warning, includes 2 scary clowns! All the strange plastic goodies in the picture except the ruler.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/oowyh126.jpg

- a rainbow of Kool-Aid packets for dyeing fiber or yarn - Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple

- bead soup in a round tin - a hearty soup of mainly glass beads, none huge, but not all seed beads either.


Take 3 of these:

- one letter rubber stamp; made by Inkadinkadoo. wooden base. Claim by the letter.

- an unmounted rubber stamp- claim as: opera, pen, hat bird, augustin, P.O., australia, wine, milling, apples, prettymiss

- glossy blank punched cards - 16 sheets, heavy cardstock, about the size of a recipe card or large index card, bright white with a somewhat slick surface--not as glossy as a photo but has a sheen to it that makes it a perfect surface for rubber stamping and maybe alcohol inks. Large hole in the corner for binding them all with a bunch of chunky yarns!
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/75773_101_6051.JPG

- these old wooden spools of thread - I also have MANY wooden spools with no thread; if you would rather have some of those, just let me know; same quantity for the claim.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/75773_101_6040.JPG

- any 5 rubber stamps from these thumbnails (or 15 of them for 1 claim). most are mounted with black foam. claim by name.

MY LIST

Pick 1




Blue Totoro, white Totoro plus four soot sprites. Blue Totoro is about 1" tall.


Nestlaces! (clickable thumbnails)

Gemstone eggs in a silver plated nest. The nests are about 1 1/4" across. Comes with a silver plated chain.



Turquoise egg nestlace. I think the "eggs" are green aventurine.




Retro looking orange cotton fabric. One claim is about 1 yard x 45" (or claim half for 1/2 claim or 1FQ for 1/4 claim).




Matryoshka, Russian nesting dolls, cotton fabric. One claim is about 1 yard x 45" (or claim half for 1/2 claim or 1FQ for 1/4 claim).


Extraordinary taggies, pick one for a claim!

These are so much fun for babies to fiddle with. I have tried to mix lots of different materials and features in every taggie. They are all around 10" x 10", but size varies a bit.



Denim frogs! This taggie is made from the leg of a pair of jeans. If you lift the flap there are soft flannel frogs hiding! Backside is made of soft dark green velour (is there a better word in English?)




Cute little ninja boys (?). I got them in a swap but just haven't found a good craft project for them. Some of them show some wear. Claim all for one claim, 6 of them for 1/2 claim or 4 of them for 1/3 claim.


The below are my own improvised designs based on the ancient Japanese art of temari, which translated into English means "hand ball". The ball itself in these cases has a base consisting of a plastic bag (since temari is all about recycling) and round it is layers of hand wound yarn and thread to shape the ball and make the decorative surface. The embroidery is made with cotton perle. All handmade by me. Choice of blue ball (very dark blue IRL) or green. Egg cup/temari stand and image editor frames not included.  Cheesy




...or pick 2!






Hello Kitty metal box to put pens et.c. in (what are these things called in English?). Some minor scratches and colour shifts as seen in the second image above.




Price reduced on the above temari




Traditional Swedish glass troll, about 2" tall, heavy and could be used as a paper weight. It has an inscription on the back, apparently some kind of SAAB commercial message, but that is only visible from the back (image 3). Really difficult to get a good picture of this one.


...or pick 3! NOW PICK 4






Cross stitch kits to make angels with ribbons and all sorts of stuff. 1/4 claim each! PRICE REDUCED




Ziplock bag of scary skull beads PRICE REDUCED only 1/4 claim!




A mouse pad!  Cheesy Just a plain simple red mouse pad. I bought these some time ago and meant to do something crafty with them (some kind of frames or something), but never really got around to it. A few of them available if you want to claim more than one. PRICE REDUCED




Stretchable book covers! Claimed these in some swap, but haven't used since, so they will have to go (have to get rid of stuff!). Never opened. 1/4 claim each. PRICE REDUCED

Denim frogs! This taggie is made from the leg of a pair of jeans. If you lift the flap there are soft flannel frogs hiding! Backside is made of soft dark green velour (is there a better word in English?)




Cute little ninja boys (?). I got them in a swap but just haven't found a good craft project for them. Some of them show some wear. Claim all for one claim, 6 of them for 1/2 claim or 4 of them for 1/3 claim.


The below are my own improvised designs based on the ancient Japanese art of temari, which translated into English means "hand ball". The ball itself in these cases has a base consisting of a plastic bag (since temari is all about recycling) and round it is layers of hand wound yarn and thread to shape the ball and make the decorative surface. The embroidery is made with cotton perle. All handmade by me. Choice of blue ball (very dark blue IRL) or green. Egg cup/temari stand and image editor frames not included.  Cheesy




...or pick 2!






Hello Kitty metal box to put pens et.c. in (what are these things called in English?). Some minor scratches and colour shifts as seen in the second image above.




Price reduced on the above temari




Traditional Swedish glass troll, about 2" tall, heavy and could be used as a paper weight. It has an inscription on the back, apparently some kind of SAAB commercial message, but that is only visible from the back (image 3). Really difficult to get a good picture of this one.


...or pick 3! NOW PICK 4






Cross stitch kits to make angels with ribbons and all sorts of stuff. 1/4 claim each! PRICE REDUCED




Ziplock bag of scary skull beads PRICE REDUCED only 1/4 claim!




A mouse pad!  Cheesy Just a plain simple red mouse pad. I bought these some time ago and meant to do something crafty with them (some kind of frames or something), but never really got around to it. A few of them available if you want to claim more than one. PRICE REDUCED




Stretchable book covers! Claimed these in some swap, but haven't used since, so they will have to go (have to get rid of stuff!). Never opened. 1/4 claim each. PRICE REDUCED

I am in California, with a fuzzy dog (not the one in my avatar, though--much less fuzzy), neither of us smoke, I avoid smoke, and there is no indoor smoking at this house.

My offerings:

Take 1 of these:

"T-kettle" mini altered canvas set - 4 little bitty canvases; 2 have a purple-green sheen (interference paint) which doesn't show up in the photos.

- Flat-Rate envelope stuffed with paper/ephemera - vintage goodies, handmade paper, book pages, weird randomness, most images too big for ATCs. there will be embellishments, too, maybe some handspun yarn as well. Let me know your preferences and interests and I'll customize it for you.

- Small-Flat-Rate Box-of-Whimsies - same idea as the above, but more 3-dimensional. (: beads, vintage buttons, trims, notions, findings, oddities...y'know, whimsies.

- crocheted kerchief beautifully made by farmgirljane. I absolutely love it but somehow the shape of my head and my copious large hair don't allow it to sit right when I'm wearing it.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_9348.JPG

- 6 unopened packs of Sculpey III (polymer clay). Colors: Pink Pearl, Gray-Intermediate, Flesh (2 packs), Maroon, and Pearl. They'll need some major kneading, as all unhandled polymer clay does; I don't know how old they are because I bought them second hand but they don't feel brittle.

- Joker needlework - approx 4x7
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/75773_jokerxstitch.jpg

- Burlesque bookmark - x-stitch on aida cloth with black lace and microbead trim and big tacky feather sewn on. I made this for a swap but the recipient disappeared and the package was sent back to me.


magnetic mail holder - hard plastic, altered surface. Rescued from its earlier life as an ugly early-80s Avon item with a bland cutesy neighborhood on the front. Now it's got a goldish/bronzy finish on the visible portions, and lots of embellishment (mail-related) all over the place. There is a small area partitioned inside for pens and such, and the whole thing has a depth of about 1.5 inches. It has magnets on the back so it can sit on the fridge, and it also has holes for nails if it would go better on your wall.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/gold3.JPGhttp://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/altered090.jpg

recond vintage childrens textbook to CD holder - can hold 28 CDs and several liner note booklets. Bright colors, retro childrens theme, has a notepad inside and free space for adding personal embellishments. Manu Chao not included.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/100_10731.JPG


Take 2 of these:

- 50 sheets of off-white vellum paper, 8.5x11", can be run through some printers

- baggie of dried lavender - US only due to international shipping regulations.

- vintage cake toppers - warning, includes 2 scary clowns! All the strange plastic goodies in the picture except the ruler.
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/oowyh126.jpg

- a rainbow of Kool-Aid packets for dyeing fiber or yarn - Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple

- bead soup in a round tin - a hearty soup of mainly glass beads, none huge, but not all seed beads either.


Take 3 of these:

- set of 5 molded crayons from scrap-crayons - mixed colors, same shapes as these
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/swapshop_007.jpg

- one letter rubber stamp; made by Inkadinkadoo. wooden base. Claim by the letter.

- an unmounted rubber stamp- claim as: opera, pen, hat bird, augustin, P.O., australia, wine, milling, apples, prettymiss

- glossy blank punched cards - 16 sheets, heavy cardstock, about the size of a recipe card or large index card, bright white with a somewhat slick surface--not as glossy as a photo but has a sheen to it that makes it a perfect surface for rubber stamping and maybe alcohol inks. Large hole in the corner for binding them all with a bunch of chunky yarns!


- these old wooden spools of thread - I also have MANY wooden spools with no thread; if you would rather have some of those, just let me know; same quantity for the claim.


- any 5 rubber stamps from these thumbnails (or 15 of them for 1 claim). most are mounted with black foam. claim by name.

I am in California, with a fuzzy dog (not the one in my avatar, though--much less fuzzy), neither of us smoke, I avoid smoke, and there is no indoor smoking at this house.

My offerings:

Take 1 of these:

green/yellow recon book - sewn binding, hard cover taken from old Readers Digest Condensed Books. Mixed paper inside.


green/rust recon book - sewn binding with ribbons at spine, hard cover taken from old Readers Digest Condensed Books. Mixed paper inside.


pink/rust recon book - sewn binding, hardcover. Book block is attached only to back cover, with spine and front cover mainly just decorative. Mixed paper inside. Made with almost entirely reclaimed materials.


"Songs of the Doomed" recon book - a Hunter S. Thompson/gonzo journalism book originally, now a blank mini binder full of mixed blank paper and images.


"T-kettle" mini altered canvas set - 4 little bitty canvases; 2 have a purple-green sheen (interference paint) which doesn't show up in the photos.

- Flat-Rate envelope stuffed with paper/ephemera - vintage goodies, handmade paper, book pages, weird randomness, most images too big for ATCs. there will be embellishments, too, maybe some handspun yarn as well. Let me know your preferences and interests and I'll customize it for you.

- Small-Flat-Rate Box-of-Whimsies - same idea as the above, but more 3-dimensional. (: beads, vintage buttons, trims, notions, findings, oddities...y'know, whimsies.

- 6 unopened packs of Sculpey III (polymer clay). Colors: Pink Pearl, Gray-Intermediate, Flesh (2 packs), Maroon, and Pearl. They'll need some major kneading, as all unhandled polymer clay does; I don't know how old they are because I bought them second hand but they don't feel brittle.

- Joker needlework - approx 4x7”


magnetic mail holder - hard plastic, altered surface. Rescued from its earlier life as an ugly early-80s Avon item with a bland cutesy neighborhood on the front. Now it's got a goldish/bronzy finish on the visible portions, and lots of embellishment (mail-related) all over the place. There is a small area partitioned inside for pens and such, and the whole thing has a depth of about 1.5 inches. It has magnets on the back so it can sit on the fridge, and it also has holes for nails if it would go better on your wall.


recon’d vintage children’s textbook to CD holder - can hold 28 CDs and several liner note booklets. Bright colors, retro children’s theme, has a notepad inside and free space for adding personal embellishments. Manu Chao not included.



Take 2 of these:

-'60s Swinger blank book - about 20 pages, soft-cover sewn binding with metallic silver ads from the 60s for singles events and services for swingers. It's so tacky, I couldn't help it!


- Burlesque bookmark - x-stitch on aida cloth with black lace and microbead trim and big tacky feather sewn on. I made this for a swap but the recipient disappeared and the package was sent back to me.


- 50 sheets of off-white vellum paper, 8.5x11", can be run through some printers

- baggie of dried lavender - US only due to international shipping regulations.

- a rainbow of Kool-Aid packets for dyeing fiber or yarn - Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple

- bead soup in a round tin - a hearty soup of mainly glass beads, none huge, but not all seed beads either.



Take 3 of these:

- set of 6 molded multi-color crayons from scrap-crayons - each one a different color scheme, same shapes as these


- one letter rubber stamp (or 4 for 1 claim); made by Inkadinkadoo. wooden base. Claim by the letter.


- an unmounted rubber stamp (or 4 for 1 claim)- claim as: opera, pen, hat bird, augustin, P.O., australia, wine, milling, apples, prettymiss


- glossy blank punched cards - 16 sheets, heavy cardstock, about the size of a recipe card or large index card, bright white with a somewhat slick surface--not as glossy as a photo but has a sheen to it that makes it a perfect surface for rubber stamping and maybe alcohol inks. Large hole in the corner for binding them all with a bunch of chunky yarns!


- these old wooden spools of thread - I also have MANY wooden spools with no thread; if you would rather have some of those, just let me know; same quantity for the claim.


- any 5 rubber stamps from these thumbnails (or 16 of them for 1 claim). most are mounted with black foam. claim by name.
mushrooms, pillar, peanut (or potato?), pepper, peach, garlic, big b-fly, tropical fish, squash
fish, snake, penguin, frog, monkey, elephant, shell, paw 1, lop, paw 2, tortoise, b-fly, bunny butt, otters, little bird, crane, ram, camel, sea turtle
cloud 1, snowflake, fire, stars1, cloud 2, star, earth, waves, stars2, moon, wave
tree, cairo, lotus L, pineapple, asparagus, lotus R

Hello, I would like to claim the following sewing patterns from Zelda.Suicide:

Simplicity Built by Wendy 3964
Simplicity Threads Collection 4072
Simplicity 4116
Simplicity 5961

Claims Allowed (Outstanding): 3
Claims made so far: 1
Sendouts Not Sent: 0

The things on my list come from a smoke-free environment, but there may be traces of cat allergens on them.

And here's the list:

1 claim


Skirt, made from repurposed materials. I love it but it doesn't fit me. I would estimate it to a size L or M/L. Unstretched the waistband is 32" (81 cm) around, but it stretches a lot, so I recommend it to someone with a larger hip/waist measurement than this. The waist band is 10" (25 cm) long, and looks nice folded double. Total length is 30" (76 cm) and depending on how it's worn it will go down to the knee or a bit below the knee. Could probably be worn as a dress as well. The white material is very sheer, so unless the wearer is very exhibitionistic, there is need for an underskirt or leggings underneath.

1/2 claim


One choice of the following fabric items = 1/2 claim (left to right):
1. Yellow and green striped vintage fabric. I think it has once served as a curtain. Roughly measures 35" x 35" (90 x 90 cm), in some places wider in some places narrower. There is a faint stain on it, about 6" x 6" (15 x 15 cm) big, it may wash away, I haven't attempted to remove it.
2. Gray and black wide striped felted wool cardigan, missing part of the sleeves and half of one front. Excellent for small felted projects. I made wrist cuffs from part of the sleeves, and embroidered them with red flowers, looks great!
3. Bright Orange (less yellow than the pic) very elastic cotton jersey. Tubular shape, measures approximately 15" x 32" (38 x 80 cm). Great for t-shirts, tank tops, tube tops, ribbing for all kinds of garments...
4. Three vintage pillowcases. They measure 18" x 23" (45 x 60 cm), except the one to the right, which has a piece cut out. Excellent for patchwork or small projects.
5. Retro fabric/surprise blouse! This is genuine 60's/70's fabric from an old seamstress friend. It is cut out to make a blouse, but can be used for other crafty purposes as well. I suspect there is a center front panel missing, otherwise the back seems unproportionately large compared to the front flaps. Anyway, whether you want to give the (large) blouse a try, use the material for patchwork or anything else, it's an excellent opportunity to get some really neat vintage fabric!
6. Hand silk-screened eye prints in black on white/natural fabric swatches. The print comes in 4 different versions and is printed on several different types of fabric. There are 40 swatches in the lot. The print measures 3" x 4,5" (11,5 x 7,5 cm). I had plans to make something cool from these, like stitching them onto paper to make cards or something like that. But that's never going to happen, so I hope someone else can make something awesome from them. If they're going in the washer I recommend pressing them with a hot iron for a minute or two first.


Wallet. Hand silk-screened adorable green print featuring little chairs. Lined with lime green felt. Coin compartment + 2 compartments for cards/bills inside. Finishing could be neater, but except for that it's a really neat little wallet.

1/4 claim


Choose one of the following two for 1/4 claim (or both for 1/2):
Left: Bag of whimsies: what you see is what you get (plus a plastic belt buckle that had fallen out of the picture)! A bag full of little trinkets, your imagination sets the boundaries for what these can be crafted into.
Right: 6 gift boxes made from old photos (I can make more of these, 6 giftboxes = 1/4 claim, please specify if you want any theme or special motif and I'll see what I can do).


One choice of the following sewing supplies = 1/4 claim (left to right):
1. Black lace ribbon. Perfect for adding a ruffly lacy finish to your sewing projects. 106" (270 cm).
2. 2 black purse handles in plastic. Inner diameter approximately 4,5" (11 cm).
3. Red and Yellow felted flower brooch and red felted flower with 2 leaves. Hopefully someone can make something fabulous from these!
4. Purple satin ribbon. Water repellent acetate. 1,5" (4 cm) wide. Says 50 yards on the spool, some of it has been used but not much, my guess is that theres at least 30-40 yards left.


Fake fur, beige. Measures approximately 6" x 16" (16 x 40 cm), but is a curved shape, so the bottom end is slightly longer. I've made a bike saddle warmer from it, and I think, with some clever cutting, there's enough to make one more from this. Or any other fluffy fuzzy craft. (:


One choice of the following jewelry = 1 claim (left to right):
1. black fimo clay earring (for ordinary sized piercings, no stretching needed) 
2. crochet metal wire and pearl bracelet (children's size).
3. 2 button pins
4. dangly earrings
5. brown and green macram bracelet 1/4" wide


One choice of the following necklaces = 1/4 claim (left to right):
1. black with blue/green stones and an egyptian scarab (22", 56 cm)
2. black flat beads (18", 46 cm)
3. red/pink square wooden beads (26,5", 67 cm)
4. black matte seed beads (29", 74 cm)
5. Silver & green beads (38", 96 cm)
6. Bronze, silver & green beads (48", 122 cm).

Claim One:

Gallon size ziploc full of large lip balm like containers. Would be great for a solid body butter/lotion. About 15



12 Sliding lip balm tins with lids. Cute little slide top tins, perfect for all kinds of uses. Lip balm, salve, solid perfume, pills, candy, packaging for gifts, shipping, etc.

url=http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=297849][/url]




Claim Any Two

Aromatherapy bath salts with shimmery, glittery micah! Great to tuck in with hostess or Christmas gifts, or to unwind and treat yourself at the end of the day. Enough for at least two baths, or 3 foot soaks. I've made them very potent and smelly-good!  Wink
Currently have lavender and lavender mint essential oil fragranced.


Almond Cuticle Cream. Made from a rich combination of beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter and more, this stuff is so awesome. This little container goes a long way, too. A staple in my purse in these winter months! I can decorate the lid with a little silver star or lady bug instead of flowers if you prefer. (.5) each


Cherry Blossom Earrings. Oxidized sterling silver, glass beads. (.5)


Brown and Pink Damask, Mint Chocolate Chip, Leafy and Shangri La Bobby Pins. Fabric covered, the button is 7/8" and slightly rounded, attached to 2" no slip bobby pins.


Everyday Brass Hoops. I literally do wear my pair nearly every day, made from oxidized brass that is nickel free. Also available in silver. About the size of a half dollar coin.


Reduced Vintage Apron (Not made by me!) Yellow orange and white with some hand sewing and hand embroidery. Let me know if you'd like measurements

Paper Crane Earrings. I got them in a swap and they're very cute but I don't wear them! Hopefully they can go to someone who will adore them. Smiley


25 Small Gold Screw-in Hooks.


Bobby Pins! Fabric covered buttons, vintage BINGO pieces,  and buttons with bows!


(Middle row, last pair in blue and gold are gone)

Novelty Yarn -- Please specify color(s) (Bright green no longer available)




Choose any available 5 (or three, and one of the choose 2's)

Stoneware buttons/pieces for your use. They are unglazed, they look quite nice with an acrylic wash, but the painting/finishing is up to you! The edges were trimmed and smoothed before firing but not after. If a perfectly smooth piece is what you want, you may need to sand a little bit with sand paper, but it is pretty easy. I had to up the contrast in PhotoShop to show the patterns, they are a natural pale almond color. These were made from stoneware clay and fired in a kiln. The circles are about 1.5"-2"


3 for .5 pt. Claim as patterned diamond (1), circle flower , pine branch (1), palm tree (2), angel (1), sheep in circle (1), cat in circle (1), sailboat (2), seahorse (1), heart design .

My last claim for the round, I'd like to claim the black board book and 4 ceramic pendants, more specifically number 1 and 4 from the left on the 2nd row and number 1 and 2 from the left on the 4th row. Hope I got the number of items right.

The things on my list come from a smoke-free environment, but there may be traces of cat allergens on them. Crossed out items are no longer available.

And here's the updated list (hoping the pictures are clearer):

One choice of the following fabric items = 1/2 claim (left to right):

1. Yellow and green striped vintage fabric. I think it has once served as a curtain. Roughly measures 35" x 35" (90 x 90 cm), in some places wider in some places narrower. There is a faint stain on it, about 6" x 6" (15 x 15 cm) big, it may wash away, I haven't attempted to remove it.


2. Gray and black wide striped felted wool cardigan. Missing part of the sleeves and half of one front. Excellent for small felted projects. I made wrist cuffs from part of the sleeves, and embroidered them with red flowers, looks great!


3. Bright Orange very elastic cotton jersey (less yellow than the pic). Tubular shape, measures approximately 15" x 32" (38 x 80 cm). Great for t-shirts, tank tops, tube tops, ribbing for all kinds of garments...


4. Retro fabric/surprise blouse! This is genuine 60's/70's fabric from an old seamstress friend. It is cut out to make a blouse, but can be used for other crafty purposes as well. I suspect there is a center front panel missing, otherwise the back seems unproportionately large compared to the front flaps. Anyway, whether you want to give the (large) blouse a try, use the material for patchwork or anything else, it's an excellent opportunity to get some really neat vintage fabric!


5. Wallet. Hand silk-screened adorable green print featuring little chairs. Lined with lime green felt. Coin compartment + 2 compartments for cards/bills inside. Finishing could be neater, but except for that it's a really neat little wallet.


1/4 claim

Choose one of the following two for 1/4 claim (or both for 1/2):

Left: Bag of whimsies: what you see is what you get (plus a plastic belt buckle that had fallen out of the picture)! A bag full of little trinkets, your imagination sets the boundaries for what these can be crafted into.
Right: 6 gift boxes made from old photos (I can make more of these, 6 giftboxes = 1/4 claim, please specify if you want any theme or special motif and I'll see what I can do).

One choice of the following sewing supplies = 1/4 claim (left to right):

1. Black lace ribbon. Perfect for adding a ruffly lacy finish to your sewing projects. 106" (270 cm).
2. 2 black purse handles in plastic. Inner diameter approximately 4,5" (11 cm).
3. Red and Yellow felted flower brooch and red felted flower with 2 leaves. Hopefully someone can make something fabulous from these!
4. Purple satin ribbon. Water repellent acetate. 1,5" (4 cm) wide. Says 50 yards on the spool, some of it has been used but not much, my guess is that theres at least 30-40 yards left.

1/4 claim: Fake fur, beige. Measures approximately 6" x 16" (16 x 40 cm), but is a curved shape, so the bottom end is slightly longer. I've made a bike saddle warmer from it, and I think, with some clever cutting, there's enough to make one more from this. Or any other fluffy fuzzy craft. (:


One choice of the following jewelry = 1/4 claim:
1. black fimo clay earring (for ordinary sized piercings, no stretching needed) 


2. crochet violet metal wire and white bead bracelet (children's size).


3. 2 button pins


4. dangly earrings


5. brown and green macram bracelet 1/4" wide


6. black with blue/green stones and an egyptian scarab (22", 56 cm)


7. black flat beads (18", 46 cm)


8. red/pink square wooden beads (26,5", 67 cm)


9. black matte seed beads (29", 74 cm)


10. Silver & green beads (38", 96 cm)


11. Bronze, silver & green beads (48", 122 cm).
