All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!

GENERAL
The Shop the Swap (or STS) is a different kind of swap in that we start with finished items.  We use a point system in which you price items in points that you receive when you sell your shop item to another swapper.  Once you have sent your claim out , you can use those points to buy any available item from any open shop in the swap.   Like the real world, you cant spend points that you dont have (no overdraft here) and you cant hoard your points under your mattress (you must close and go shopping when you have +7 points).  

SHOPS
- Post a shop in this thread with at least 5 finished, handcrafted items for the other swappers to choose from.  You can also post a small amount of craft supply items at the bottom of your shop.  **Custom items can be offered, but must be finished and sent in a timely manner, so keep this in mind and only offer custom items that you can finish quickly.  Please let us know if you will be sending late.
-Handcrafted items from other people may be offered in your shop, BUT  be aware of the potential of hurt feelings when selling items made for you in other swaps.  This is a high profile swap that many people see.  Crafted items from others must be credited with the name of the creator or you will be requested to remove that item.
-Each item should have a SHORT identifiable title, description and picture.  Each item should be priced between 1 and 3 points.  Groups of items can be priced at a choice of 2 for 1 (or 3 for 1 etc).  Charge what you think is fair for your crafted item, considering time/supply cost/popularity.
-Check peoples wishlists and use the discussion thread for brainstorming any new items to offer in your shop.

PLEASE SEE THE NEXT POST FOR SHOP FORMATS

POINTS
-all persons new to the swap receive 3 points to spend.  This is a STS loan and you must leave with 3 points (in effect pay the loan back) for positive feedback.  
-Your shop must be open before you can spend your points in other shops.
-Remember there are no guarantees that claims will be made from your shop.  To make a sale you may need to adjust your prices or offer new crafted items/supplies.
-Everytime someone claims from you, you will get whatever point price you have listed for it.  List the claim at the bottom of your shop and add the points into pending and to your points total.  You cannot spend pending points.
-Once you have sent the claim, move the points into current.  All current points are spendable so go shopping!
-When you have +7 points (a TOTAL of current and pending) you must close your shop temporarily.  Edit your shop post to put CLOSED at the top in big bold letters that people will see.
-Once you go shopping (with your current points, you may have to ship first)and spend your points down to 5 or less, you can re-open your shop.
-Each round  claims to and from you should be listed with your point tally at the bottom of your shop.  See the next post for the proper shop format.
-Points will be carried over to the next round.  You need to send a sign-up for each new round of the STS, which will occupy a separate swap slot in your profile.

PLEASE SEE THE NEXT POST FOR CLAIM/SEND/RECEIVE PM FORMATS

FEEDBACK
Ongoing
-Positive feedback for the previous round will be given once you have signed up/opened shop for the next round AND the new round is open in your profile. If any prior claims go missing you may be required to remake/refund the points/offer something else in your shop if you have no DC# or shipping receipt.  If you have a valid DC# or shipping receipt it is your decision whether you will replace the item or have me arrange an angel
-You are responsible for signing up and opening your shop for the next round by the 15th of the month if you have under 3 points.  If we have not heard from you by then, temporary negative feedback will be given.

Final
-If you wish to leave the swap, please let the organizers know.  Positive feedback will be given if you have 3 points and all your claims have been received.
-Negative feedback will be given for leaving (this includes NOT sending in a signup before the end of the signup period) with less than 3 points and/or not sending claims made to you.  If you wish to leave and need points, have a sale, let people know in the discussion thread, offer some supplies.  
-Spend your points down to 3 if you do not plan on continueing to the next round.  If you leave with more than 3 points, any points above 3 will go into the inflation fund if you have not sent in a sign-up by the 15th of the next round's signup period.  Again, reminder pm's to join will not be sent out.  You can sign up and just go shopping if you do not wish to open a shop, just let us know. These points will not be returned to you should you join the STS in a future round.  So go shopping!

SHIPPING
-Remember that you have ONE WEEK to ship from the day you receive a claim.
- DC# are required on all claims if eligible AS PER CRAFTSTER SWAP RULES; if sending internationally please keep your postal receipt until your item is received.   Thin items can be padded with a plastic grocery bag or something similiar to make them thick enough for a DC#.  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.
-Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.


COMMUNICATION
-It is your responsibility to keep relevant people informed of your shop and claim status
-all claim/send/receive pms must be sent to all 3 organizers as well as to the person you are claiming from/sending to.  Please check you're outgoing pm's to ensure that everyone has received a copy!!!!!!
-Poor communication will be noted in your feedback.  This includes not informing the organizers/other swappers of claim status via the correct claim format; not posting in the discussion thread; slow signups for the next round when you have less than 3 points.
-Do join in the lively conversation on the discussion thread which can be found here:   http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=387219.0

Shop format

Name of your shop and a brief bio, your location, allergy info..
OPEN or CLOSED  <<remember to change this when you need too!!>>

-List all crafted items you have to offer, either by high point to low point, newest to oldest-however you like to organize your items.
-A good picture of your item makes it much more likely to be claimed
-Make sure every item has a SHORT recognizable title that can be used in claiming (and makes it much easier for cutting and pasting to the claims list)
-Clearly mark the price of the item (1-3 points) in whole numbers only please-while you can list things for .25 or .5, there has to be enough of the items so people can make a whole number claim
-List how many of the items are available
-Once items are claimed, it is your responsibility to remove them from your shop to avoid claim confusion.  Pictures can be transferred to the gallery for each round.
-Include a brief description of the item

-Craft supply items can be listed after crafted items.  Please keep these to a  manageable amount and if you have more than a few use thumbnails for pictures.  If you put the thumbnail links together with no spaces they will show up in a line.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
At the end of your shop please put your claims list and point total

Claims made from me -  <<List all claims made to your shop for the current round only like this:>>
to alteredmommy  fabulous soap (2 pt)

Claims I have made -  <<List all claims that you make to other people like this>>
from lapoli fabulous roving (2 pt)

Points:
Started with: 2   <<This is how many points you start the round with>>
Pending:2           <<This is the point total of claims made to you that HAVE NOT BEEN SENT YET-once you
                               send these points get removed from pending and added to current points
>>
Current:1            <<These are your spendable points from claims that you HAVE SENT-the point value of any
                                claims you make gets deducted from here
>>

TOTAL: 3           <<This is the total of PENDING and CURRENT points.  When the total is +7 you must temporarily
                               close your shop and spend (using current points) down to 5 or less
>>

A wishlist of items you would love to see in peoples shops can be included at the bottom of your shop  

 

Claim/Send/Receive pm format

All pms must be sent to all 3 organizers alteredmommy, lapoli, loves2experiment AND the person you are claiming/sending/receiving from.  All pms must be sent in the proper format to be valid, the FIRST properly formatted claim for any item wins the claim.  

Here is an example of a claim made on January 1:
To: alteredmommylapoliloves2experimentperson you are claiming from
Subject: STS 38 Claim

Send by January 8
Phizzychick to alteredmommy 5 neato cards (1 pt)
                                        -bunch of doo-dads .5, bird necklace .5 (1 pt)
Cheryl DM
10 moose eating my yard street
My town, AB
Canada,  H0H 0H0

Here is a line by line breakdown:

TO:   <<all 3 organizers must be in this line and the person you are sending to.  We need to see all names in this line for the claim to be valid.  Make sure you use the To: space and NOT the bcc space.  Please check your outgoing message copy to see that the correct people received the pm and resend the message to everyone if anyone gets missed-this is REALLY, REALLY important and we dont mind getting copies as long as we eventually get a correct one!  Hint- write the names with quote marks around each one except the last>>
SUBJECT:  <<STS round #  Claim  OR Send OR Receive Please make sure the subject line is correct as it really helps with filing the hundreds of pms into the proper folder>>

SEND BY  <<7 days from the date that the claim was made, which is the date directly under the claim date on the calendar, include this on ALL claim/send/receive pms>>

claim
person you are claiming from to alteredmommy 5 neato cards (1 pt)
                                                  -  bunch of doo dads .5, bird necklace .5 (1 pt)
<<the person you are claiming from goes first, you go second>>
<<use the brief title of the item on ONE line, please write the claim beside the swapper names (this needs to be cut and pasted to the list)>>
<<claims must be made in whole points, if claiming a number of items listed as fractions of points you need to claim enough to add up to a whole point>>
<<each full point claim should be written on a separate line>>
<<multiple part point claims should be written as 1 claim as above>>
your address, written as it should be for mailing

send
<<you can copy the original claim made to you, make sure you change the SUBJECT line.    Obviously when you send a claim, your name goes first and the person you are sending to goes second.>>

receive
<<again you can copy the original claim, making sure you change the SUBJECT line to receive

Any personal comments or messages (I love this  thankyou etc..) needs to be put at the BOTTOM  of your message so we can see the claim info.



General Info

what about customs and holding claims  <<<<please read!!
Putting items on hold in your shop is up to your own discretion.  Only items that are currently listed in your shop can be put on hold.  Holds should only be accepted when your shop is open, if a shop is closed and you are itching to claim something please pm the shop owner and ask that they let you know when they reopen so you can claim.  Custom items should be posted and reserved on hold for the person you made them for, then they can submit a formal claim.  Please do not ask people via private message to hold items for you until you can submit a proper claim; this is not an acceptable way around the "first properly formatted claim wins the item" rule.  And as always please be reasonable about the time you expect someone to hold an item for you.


What is the Shop the Swap inflation fund?
This is where the extra points go.  The Shop the Swap has its own little economy and the average points per person runs about 3.5- mostly because of many swappers leaving with less/more than 3 points in earlier rounds.  The points need to stay in the swap to keep inflation down, that is why we ask that people spend down to 3 pts when leaving.  The inflation fund may be used to offset people leaving with less than 3 points; refunds for claims that have gone missing etc.

My points/claims don't match what I think they should. Is something wrong?
If it has been awhile since you made the claim or if any of the organizers admit to having been drunk/sick/tired/attending to life in the real world when we last updated the claims or points, go ahead and send us a PM. Otherwise, give us time to get caught up with claims. If your claim is a few days old and not has not shown up on the list, please send us a pm inquiring about it (it may have been missed in the hundreds of pms that we get or not messaged to everyone)

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.  Re-open your shop when you know you are at 5 points or less. 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.

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.  I do go through everyones shops on occasion to add up points and make sure were all on the same page.
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 in case you havent updated recently or when the points list hasn't been updated in the last 5 minutes!

If you have any further questions, please dont hestitate to pm the organizers!!!

~*~TSM in STS~*~

Hi there!  Im Zoe, and this is my shop.  I live in sunny Florida with my partner, Nicky, and 2 lovely kitties that visit my craft room on a regular basis.  We are a smoke free home.  I have been crafting since I was a child, only started honing my skills in the last 3 years on jewelry and sewing.  I make flower head wreaths every year for my local medieval faire, and I have a BLAST!  I am a HUGE fan of owls, celestial, trees, hearts, hippie and gypsy style, patchwork, sea life, and birds.  Jewelry, sewn goodies, and button art are my main crafts so youll be seeing a lot of them in my shop Smiley

If you would like to see me create a particular item, or would like to request a custom piece on something that is not already listed as available for a custom order, shoot me a PM!

Check out the latest round of STS for my current shop!

OPEN!




Brief bio:  I am a Michigan (USA) native and can't imagine living anywhere else!  No smoking goes on in my house, but I have my little jack russell, Haily.  I try my best to keep Haily hair off things, but I'm usually a carrier, so if one or two slip through, my apologies!  

A2K's Shop


Freebies!  Choose one item for each point you spend!

     


New price! Teacup shaped tea wallets (.5)

 


Teabag zipper pulls added on request!


Custom Oven Mitts (1)




PM your colors and I will sort through my stash to make a mitt just for you!  

Quilted Zipper Pouch (1)                                  Large quilted bag with cotton rope handle (1)[/b]

 

Microwave Baked Potato Bag with pattern instructions (.5)

[Make delicious, fluffy baked potatoes in your microwave!  This bag will cook up to 4 medium sized potatoes in just 10 minutes.  Made of 100% cotton materials.  (No polyester is used which will melt/catch fire).  Good for warming tortillas, too!  I will include directions for use as well as the pattern instructions! Orange bag claimed, but I can make another!

Quilted Cosmetic Bag with PUL lining & matching dumpling bag (2)



Rick rack, tiny buttons and a zipper pull crafted by kriSmith in OWS 70 embellish this medium sized sturdy PUL lined bag.  Fabric from mimiw's stash!

Custom Pyramid bags (.5) small, (1) large



Small pyramid bags are just right for coins or small odds and ends.  Longer bags (for pencils?) or larger bags for this and that can be made to order as well.  Let me know what you're looking for in terms of fabric and size!  

Upcycled crochet storage bowl (1)

Upcycled from a crocheted purse, this little bowl is sturdy enough to help you organize your bathroom vanity, bedroom dresser, kitchen counter or craft room table!  It is lined with decor-bond interfacing and bright pink floral cotton.

Zipper pouch wristlet with interior zip pocket (1)

 

Made of heavy cotton, crisp interfacing and yellow orange cotton lining, this little bag sports an interior zip pocket.  


Handspun arm warmers  (2)

These are about 10 inches in length and are stretchy enough to wear over gloves/sleeves.  The thumb is sectioned off with just a couple of stitches and could be removed for short leg warmers!  

Knitted from my own handspun wool! The fiber came from lapoli in STS (purple rain)!  Just right for keeping arms and wrists warm while leaving your fingers free for knitting (Smiley )!
   


Handspun neck warmer  (2)

Knitted from my own handspun wool! The fiber came from MLF in STS!  Just right for keeping the wind off your neck and ears -- it's a tad scratchy, but will be just the ticket over a turtleneck!  Stand the collar up for added wind protection!


Wristwatch pincushion - (.5)
Claim as blue band or orange band!

 


Supplies



Vintage handkerchiefs (.25)

     

If you like vintage hankies, these are stunning!  Great shape and soft!  Claim as "Hankie" and PM me to work out which of them you would like! (big pink flower in photo 2 and pink/green flowers in photo 3 have been claimed)

CraftAddiction's Shop
Open

I live in a small town in Iowa. I have a small dog, who doesn't shed.
I can do custom items. If there is anything you want crocheted, just let me know. If an item says "Custom" next to it, that means you aren't getting the exact item. It is a picture of an item I made for something/someone else. I can get it done in the one week requirement. If you have any color preferences, just let me know. My items are not made with young kids in mind. If you are claiming something for a young child, please let let me know so I don't use any items they shouldn't have (like safety eyes or weights).



Crafts

Cable Fingerless Gloves - this pair - 3 pt



I can't believe I made these. They turned out great. Made out of wool yarn (99% wool). Should fit most people. I have average hands and they fit great. Plus there is a lot of stretch left, so they should fit much larger. If you want these, I would suggest claiming them now, as I don't know if I am going to leave them in my shop if they don't sell quickly. I have a few other ideas for them.

Knitted Jayne Hat - custom - 2 pts





Hand-spun Blue Hat - this one - 2 pt
Knitted out of yarn I spun. 100% Merino wool. Will fit average to large heads. My camera isn't very good with colors. The hat is blue, but with a slight purple shade to it.





Square - .5 pt Free with purchase

A little under 12"

Baby Pinafore - Baby Pink or custom - 2 pt each or 2 for 3 pts
Pattern says for 0-3 months, but I think it will fit much larger. These are open in the back so you don't need to go over baby's head. There is a button in the back. If you don't want it open, just let me know and I can sew it up. Or I can make a new one, and work it in a round, so it will be closed without a seam. I can do it in other colors too.
Soft Red: Sold, I can make another.

Baby Pink:


Seal - This one or custom - 1 pt


Oreo Tape Measure - This one or custom - .5 pt
Front:

Back:


Hand carved Stamps - Custom - 1 point each

Let me know if you want them mounted or not (no charge for wood mounting). If it you want something else carved, just PM me.
 




Mario Scarf - Custom - 2 pts


The last image is horrible, but it gives you an idea of length. If you want it longer, or shorter, just let me know. I can do the scarf in other colors.

FireFlower - custom - 1 point

About 8-9" tall

Goomba - custom - 1 point

I think it works ups to be about 8-9" tall

Bob-omb - custom - 1 point

I can't remember how tall this one is. I think about 4-5 inches.

Zero - Custom - 2 pts

He is quite large. That is a full sized desk/office chair he is sitting on.

Clutch - Custom - 2 pts unlined or 3 pts lined

I have the same pink variegated yarn, but the button would be different. If you want a different color, just let me know. If you want, I can send you a picture of my cotton yarns.
I can make the strap removable like this one:


Mario or Luigi - Custom - 3 pts each



Bath/Kitchen set - custom - 2 pt

This set contains a bath puff, 2 spiral scrubbies, a scrubbie with handle and a face cloth.
I can also make it in variegated blue, white or ecru. Here is a picture of the variegated blue:


Cupcake - Custom - 1 pt

I can make it a weighted pin cushion or I can make it just a stuffie with beads sewn on top for sprinkles. Let me know if you don't want a face.

Dog Bone - Custom -  1 pt

About 6 inches long

Baby Octopus - This one or Custom - .5 pt

These are pretty small, so they would probably make good stalking suffers. I can make as many as you need in whatever color(s) you want.

Lip Gloss Cozy - One of these or Custom - .25 pt or 5 for 1 pt

Includes lip gloss. If you want a different color or button, jut let me know.

Adult Lip Gloss Cozy - Custom - .25 pt
 
to change your image viewing settings please click here
Because you never know when you need.... lip gloss.

Resin Pendants - .5 pt per set .5 pt for both sets
This was an early attempt at resin, so some came out better than others. Some came out good while some have tiny imperfections. Since they aren't all perfect, I'm letting them go cheap.  
Set A:

Set B:


Octopus - This one - 1 pt


Imperfect Skinny Scarf - This one - .5 pt

I noticed that a part of the shells do not match up on the other size. If you want a 'perfect' one, I can make one in this color (or any other) for one point... see below.

Skinny Scarf - Custom - 1 pt

I can do this color or one of your choosing.

Cupcake Scarf - Custom - 3 pts


Triangle Shawl - Custom - 1 pt

Can be worn as a shawl or a scarf.

Supplies



Beginning Knit or Crochet CD - 1 pt each



Let me know what one you want when you claim. They are brand new, still sealed.

Knit or Crochet Kit - 2 pt
You can pick if you get a beginners knitting kit, or a crochet one. You will get one of the CDs above, along with yarn, hook/needles, and the accessories you will need to get started (row counter, stitch markers, etc).


20 Safety Eyes Blue, 10mm - 1 pt


Ashtray - .5 or free with 2 pt purchase

It is very pretty, but we have no use for it. Maybe someone wants it to hold supplies?


Stamps - 1pt per set or 4 sets for 3pts
Set 1:
Set 2:


Set 3:

Set 4:

Set 5:

Set 6:

Set 7:

Set 8:

Set 9:

#~#~CLOSED~#~#
See you all in a future round of STS!

Hi My name is Elaine, I live in NSW Australia. Im a mum of 2 girls and am lucky enough to be a stay at home mum. I love to craft and have been making things in some shape or form since I was abou t 4 or 5, but more seriously only in the last 5 or so years. Many people ask me where I find the time. I just tell them I MAKE time! (Apple Valley comes from the fact that I live in the valley next to the largest apple growing region in Australia). We have a no-smoking, pet free home and have no allergies.

NEW! Mug rug - 1 point each
Sorry for the 'dreamy' quality fo the photos thats what happens when your sticky fingered kids play with your camera without your knowledge!

Mug Rug 1  - 7.5" x 6"

Mug Rug 2 - 7 x 6.5

Mug Rug 3 - 2 sided - 9" x 6"


If these are popular I have plans to make more probably a pink, blue and a purple one - in a similar style to the green one above. If you have a certain colour preferance then just message me and I'll let you know if I can manage it.


I spy bag - a point
I spy bags are excellent amusement for kids in the car, planes and other places where their play is restricted. Each bag contains 10-12 items to 'spy' and are filled with bean bag beans - light for postage and to carry around. They have a 'window' so children can sort through the bag and 'spy' the items. For older children you can expand the play to 'find a red item, something that begins with the letter 'R', tell me a story using 2 of the items in the bag. Items inside bag may vary from those shown. Probably not suitable for under 3's as the bags contain small parts, although all bags are lined and sewn with care so I wouldn't expect leakage! Parents discretion I suppose.
Available in various fabrics:
Turquoise Winnie the pooh

Snakes and spiders on black

Ladybugs on yellow

Teddies in dresses on blue


Applique kids t-shirts 1 point each
All T-shirts are brand new and Applique is fixed on with fusible webbing and then hand sewn securely with blanket stitch

3 Upcycled Appliqued Babies bibs All 3 for a point

Ladybird on pink, crab and drum on white and elephant on white.

2 Upcycled Appliqued singlets size 6-12 months 2 for a point

Ladybird check and cute cows

Pair of Camo Cushion covers 14 square Deep envelope closure (no inserts) 1 point


Pair of fabric covered button hair ties - Made using Quality Scunci No damage hair elastics a point each or 3 for 1 point

One pair of each available

Welcome to the Laughing Lark Shop

Allergen:I live in a non-smoking home with two kitties. The cats are both quite furry, and I keep them out of my supplies as much as possible, but their fur gets on me, and might get onto crafts I make even though I am careful.

Open! (will try to add new stock today!)
There will be woven scarves made with wool, and hand spun yarns coming soon. I will be able to make a lot more new things now that school has started.  Smiley

Yarnage! My newbie art yarns. I have been spinning for just a few months, and I love it! I do not weight down my yarns when setting the twist, and try to keep my yarns as balanced as I can. There will be some thick and thin, though. Check back often for new yarns. Smiley

Coral Cove Corespun Art Yarn  ( 2 pts) 26 yards, plus about a yard or so of plain singles on each end for cast on and bind off. The corespun section has a core of  cotton Mayville rug warp, and is about 5 wraps per inch. Various upcycled sweater yarns. Wool blends, a bit of angora and mohair. There is a bit of  iridescent sparkle from one of the yarns which resembles Angelina. I dyed the yarns after frogging the sweaters. The colors made me think of a beachfront resort, so I gave this yarn a name that such a resort might have. Smiley


Sakura (2  pts) 84 yards, chain plied. I was just learning chain-ply. This is Sheep Shed Dye Soppers in shades of pink. About 8 Wpi, but may vary a bit.



Birds in flight sun catchers My free-hand wire birdies. Most of the time, people use a piece of clear thread to hang these up in a window in groups, but you can also make them into mobiles, tree ornaments, etc.

Birds group #1 (.5 pts)


Birds group #2 (.5 pts)


Birds group #3 (.5 pts)


Birds group #4 (.5 pts)


Birds group #5 (.5 pts)


Imperfect hand dyed woven scarf (1)
This is one of my first scarves. I made it from recycled sweater yarn and used kool aid to dye the yarn. The yarn is 50% acrylic/50% wool. There is one small float (weaving error), and a lighter patch where the dye must not have struck as well. I have since switched to Jacquard for dyeing. This scarf is wearable as is, but might be good for cutting up to make a woven bag.



Blue/brown acrylic scarf (1) The warp is Red Heart variegated yarn, and the weft is Lion Brand Homespun. This scarf is a good choice for someone who can't wear wool, or might want to be able to just throw the scarf in the washer.


Maroon Chenille scarf (1) Another acrylic scarf. This one can go in the washer, but should be dried flat, or hung to dry. The weft is chenille, and makes this scarf soft.


Beaded Sun Catcher Set (1) These can go in the window, or on the tree at Christmas.

Open!

Smoke free home, we have a dog but she is out of town for the next couple months! 

1. Hand painted toddler shoes:  Old navy size 7, worn a few times and then painted, havent been worn sense they were painted.  Garden theme.  2 points

More photos of different angles:
http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u218/leighi123/crafts/clothes/shoes/

2.  Fleece socks, any size from newborn through adults, made to order.  1pt/pair
Here is an example, yours will not be embellished though, just whatever fleece you choose from my stash.


3. Custom soft sole shoes:  Sizes newborn to 5yrs.  Over 200 fabrics to choose from.  2pts for regular ones, 3pts for embelishments.  Elastic at the ankles make them comfy but stay on.  Sizes 12months+ have non-skid bottoms.  I have a TON more pics if you want to see other examples, they are in the "shoe" photobucket album from the hand painted shoes link.


4. Corduroy tops and dresses:  2 points each, lots to choose from.  Apron style (tie at the back) or tank top style Here are just a few of them:

Here are more styles: http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u218/leighi123/crafts/mom%20items/
These are all ready to ship, but I'm happy to do customs in whatever color combo you want, and do the size you need.  I can also modify any of these ones to fit your size.   



5.  Medium flat rate box of fabric:  will be a whole mix of random fabrics, mostly smaller amounts for small projects.  Let me know if you want mostly corduroy or a mix of whatever, I have all kinds of stuff.  It will probably NOT be a lot of cotton woven or knits because thats what I use most of.  3pts.

6. Orange, navy and white bag:  TONES of pockets for all different things (including ones for sunglasses, Chapstick, business cards, and a bunch more for whatever else you have).  Converts from a tote to a back pack.  This thing took me FOREVER to make and was a lot of work, its awesome looking in the end, but ended up being bigger than what I needed it for.  I have more pics if you want to see.  3pts


7.  Snack bags:  lined with natural unbleached cotton.  2/1pt.  200+ fabrics to choose from!  Snap or velcro closure.


8.  Kids size umbrellas:  unpainted, 1pt, hand painted 2-3pts depending on the design.  I have 2 of these I believe.   Kid size.   The one I painted for Levi has held up for the past 2 years and is super cute!  (his is fishy theme)  Here is an example of a painted one:


9. Kids montessori placemats: 1pt each.  Choose any colors you want and any fabric for the back.   Helps kids set the table!




If you are looking for baby/kids stuff please PM me, I have a TON more but I don't want to post it all if no one has kids to 'shop' for this round!
