Ooh, I would really like the 5 in 1 tool please! Smiley


Claims Allowed: 2
Claims made so far: 2
Sendouts Not Sent: 1

Sendouts Received:0

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.



Vintage Apron (Not made by me!) Pink with patterned trim. Let me know if you'd like measurements



Bright animals fabric, about 48x60 in. It seems like a thick muslin, could be used for pillows, curtains, etc. Freshly washed. Nickel shown for pattern size reference.


25 Vintage watchmaker paper envelopes with hands inside. Usually 1-2 each envelope, sometimes 3. If you claim this, you might get some other watch related vintage goodness.
 




Claim Any Two


 Brown and pink damask bobby pins made by me.


Chocolate mint bobby pins made by me.


Everyday Brass Hoops. I literally do wear my pair nearly every day, made from oxidized brass that is nickel free. Also available in silver.


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


Unused House Mouse Holiday Stamp, acquired in the 90's



Set of 5 Christmas ornaments, new in bubble wrap in box. Box is a little smushed, but they are intact and have never been used.





5 Sliding lip balm tins




Choose any 3

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)





Choose any 4


 Embossing powders for use with rubber stamping! Two clear and one gold available. Two is 1/4th claim


Dog House Plastic Charms/Pendants. Please specify color(s) (Two charms is considered 1/4th claim)


Says "I'm in the dog house" at the top! Several available of each color, except only 1 gray.

Novelty Yarn -- Please specify color(s)


Misc. Rubber Stamps! Claim as Cherub, Merry Christmas, Santa or Rose




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 .



Claim as circle basketweave (2), impressed lace , leaf and acorn (1), eagle (1), Sage (1), Grapes (1).

Short Asian characters is the only toggle available!

Ok, let me know if this is okay: I'd like to claim both sets of guacaMolly's bingo bobby pins, one packet of clear embossing powder, and the green novelty yarn!

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

Sendouts Received: 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 macramé 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 scarabé (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 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

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"
