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 calluna with the following questionnaire info. Once you are approved, you are free to claim something from the most recent list posted, and then post your own list.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
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?
Confirm that are at least 13 years old (yes/no)
Your list of at least five items (crafts you can make/have readymade or details of supplies you wish to offer):


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.  http://craftster.org/swapsinfo.html (http://craftster.org/swapsinfo.html)

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

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.

At the top of your claim post, state how many claims you have made this month, and how many of those are outstanding (i.e. the recipient has not yet received the item). If you can do it in this format to differentiate between things you are claiming to receive, and things being claimed from you (sendouts), that would be awesome!

Claims:4
Claims Allowed (Outstanding):3
Sendouts Not Sent:1
Sendouts Sent:2
Sendouts in Transit:1
Sendouts Received:1

Remember your outstanding claim limit for this round:
Friend of Craftster: Three (become a Friend of Craftster! (https://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php))
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! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=223906.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=223906.0)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do not sign up unless you are willing to send outside of your country.

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, May 31. Feedback will be given on June 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 both me and who you sent to when you send out, with DC number if you are both in US.
2. Make sure to PM both me 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, try to stay on top of adding new things/combining items into one claim if your list stays up more than a couple days.
5. Post pics in the gallery if someone makes you something custom or you make something from supplies you receive. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=137907.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=137907.0)
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 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=223906.0)

Post by: calluna on May 03, 2008 02:05:34 PM
Here's my list, to get things rolling. I'll be adding more pictures and editing.

I am in California and I dabble in all kinds of arts ‘n crafts, and I have a terrible time turning down second hand art/craft supplies if I might be able to use or swap them. I’m in a non-smoking house with a dog.

Claims this month: 0
Claims allowed (outstanding): 3
Sendouts not sent: 0
Sendouts in transit: 0
Sendouts received: 0

My list:

For your claim, you can pick any THREE of the following (or one thing from the "pick 2" list and 1-2 things from this "pick 3" list):

- large stencil of cows and barnyard

-2 floral oval rubber stamps

- partial skein of light lavendar "Nice 'N Nubby" yarn
http://happy.hermit.heather.googlepages.com/yarn.jpg

- 6 small vintage "open house" cards with envelopes 
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/openhouse.jpg

- 2 unfinished wooden door-hangers for decorating

- An approx. 6x6" needlepoint on Aida cloth that says in dainty letters, "F*** your gender". (The actual piece has it spelled out, and I'm not posting a photo for obvious reasons.)

- Loves Me/Loves Me Not wheel, in plastic packaging, comeswith envelope for mailing. Spin the wheel instead of picking a poor daisy's petals off! There are also answers like those of a Magic 8-Ball inside of the wheel (in the 2nd picture), with a window on the outer/top wheel.   
http://happy.hermit.heather.googlepages.com/wheel2.jpg
http://happy.hermit.heather.googlepages.com/wheel1.jpg

- Foam bear stamp
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/100_1230.JPG

- Small glass paints in multiple colors, from beginners kits, with an applicator. I’ll include the instructions from the original pseudo-stained glass kit.
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1124.JPG

- Book entitled "Water" for altered book project. It's an old USDA Agricultural Yearbook publication, available online in full-text, but the best part is this great bookcover of a disembodied cow head arising from the water! I've already pulled out several pages to facilitate less-bulky altering; my original idea was to make the book about this cow named Water who was out for revenge...but the idea never went anywhere. It's got good potential, though: 
http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1303/1326838546_cfbb245e18_m.jpg

- 2 bilingual teddy-bear rubber stamps, one says “Excelente! / Excellent!” and the other says “Bueno / good”

- 4 handmade journals made from recycled materials. I will try to send ones that match your taste. This one is just a sample front and back:
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/75773scan0111.jpg

- Approx. 1 FQ of dense, green patterned felt. It has the colors of camouflage, but the print is foresty. I have a few of these.



Or, pick any TWO of the following:

- about 2 dozen small wooden spools (no thread attached)

- at least a dozen cream-colored crocheted circles, not made by me. They are coaster-sized, but have a bumpy design on the top which wouldn't be good for coaster usage.
- small star-book, ala
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/100_0927.JPG …Can be in any color of your choosing.

- set of custom scrapbooking/journaling tags

- large rubber stamp with pixilated image of a sunset over water

- Bob Marley book, by Margaret E Ward (ISBN #0681418664). 80 pages. Good condition, has TONS of color and b&w images, it could be kept for its original booky purpose or torn into for reuse of the images.

- 4 matching vintage schoolhouse cutouts. Appr. 8" tall, some with a reversed design so they can be placed back-to-back. Small hole in the top of each. Would make a great cover for a round-robin journal/book about school life.
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/school.jpg

- Set of rolls of color-coded stickers with days of the week, in a few languages. They're in a floppy plastic enclosure that keeps them together. 
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/75773stickers.jpg

- 3-d paper Muppet Show centerpiece, circa 1980. 
Front:
http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1129/1326838554_59ebda2178.jpg
Back of package: https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/75773muppet2.jpg

-  6 vials of ooold embossing powder (copper, gold, silver, red, blue, and green):
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1128.JPG  https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1129.JPG

- Vintage half-apron with pocket. Has some small grease-stains on it.
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1154.JPG
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1162.JPG

- unopened package of Regency cross-stitch fabric / aida cloth, 14 count. 1 piece, oatmeal-color, 15x18”, 100% cotton. I have 3 of these.


Or pick ONE:

- grab-bag of random rubber stamps

- pack of several translucent red vinyl records

- wooden dollhouse furniture kit from 1982, with some of the items already assembled.

- vintage woodburning kit in original box. It works but doesn’t get as hot as it should.

- Flat Rate box full of vintage ephemera…will definitely tailor the package to your likings.

- set of big molded crayons

- Hardcover recon journal with standard glue-binding. Examples of book covers coming soon.

- Hardcover, sewn recon journal

- a Jar of Whimsies

- Sculpey Push-Mold - Art Doll faces. See link for photo/description:
http://www.sculpey.com/Products/products_ezdoll.htm (http://www.sculpey.com/Products/products_ezdoll.htm)

- “Food stamps” – box of small rubber stamps with images of fruits and vegetables.

- set of 8 Mary Englebright rubber stamps. “Oh no”, “Snap out of it”, “From your secret love”, “The queen of everything,” “The princess of quite a lot” (those 2 clearly go together), “Life’s too mysterious, don’t take it serious”, and 2 with just the ladies on them and no words.

- Vintage floral half-apron with pockets on inside
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1158.JPG
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1159.JPG
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1160.JPG

- Scarf (not made by me), about 3 ft long. There's a power outlet down on the left for scale.
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/100_1037.JPG

- Very pretty sumi-e painting kit with a book on the topic...I don’t have a photo right now but it’s a green Asian-print case and really nice.

- Vintage children’s book recon 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.
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/100_10731.JPG
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/100_1071.JPG

Vintage children’s picture books and 1950s-60s elementary school textbooks...pics coming soon

- K & Company “Light Ideas” - 3D adhesive scrapbook images with “Hey Diddle Diddle”/baby theme, the moon lights up with led lights for 20 seconds at a time.
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/kandco.jpg

- Red satiny, asian-print photo album (store-bought). Book measures approx 9x8”, and can hold up to 180 pictures up to 4x6”

I claim the subway buttons and the stamps!

This is my first claim, of three. 

Thanks!

list:

Choose one:

- One linoleum block (mounted on wood) carved by me, based on a illustration my sister drew of a starving dog.


- One half of a kirigami-a-day calendar, untouched between June and December, with lots of

earlier also untouched pages and instructions.  Can be used as intended, or as origami paper.  That's over 120 pieces of paper.... and there are more colors than I represent here.


-5+ oz merino superwash roving in light blue with colorful noils.


-8 skeins of peach Unger "fluffy."  100% acrylic, but really quite soft and, yes, fluffy.  (it's about a US 4 needle size, though they recommend 6 on the label)


-one lot of fake fur, a little more than a fat quarter of both:



Or pick three:

-one random assortment of odds and ends for spinning.  It's got bleached and unbleached flax, 1-2 oz of very dark green alpaca roving, a number of unlabeled things, a small amount of something pink, and something teal, and some tencel.  It smells of smoke! (I don't smoke, but this came from someone who does, apparently.)

- Opened and used baby bedroom decor patterns MacCall's 8373 - I made only the ruffle and the bumper, and everything should still be in the package. 


- lot of sticky-backed foam letters.  This is just a sample of the font and the colors.  There may be more colors, but in the neon vein.  Seriously, I have many, many of these, about 1 inch high.


- half an ounce of angora fiber, for blending and spinning.  It's grey.

I'll claim TheSapphireMoon's "baggie of everything" and stick-on rhinestone swirl.

I am in California and I’m in a non-smoking house with a dog.

Claims this month: 3
Claims allowed (outstanding): 3
Sendouts not sent: 0
Sendouts in transit: 3
Sendouts received:  0

My list:


 For your claim, you can pick any THREE of the following (or one thing from the "pick 2" list and 1-2 things from this "pick 3" list):

- not made by me - painted enameled (I think?) switchplate

- 2 bird rubber stamps

- large stencil of cows and barnyard

--2 floral oval rubber stamps. Here's one; the other is more of a pointsettia

- partial skein of light lavendar "Nice 'N Nubby" yarn

- 6 small vintage "open house" cards with envelopes  

- 2 unfinished wooden door-hangers for decorating

- about 1 FQ of bright red fake/fun-fur

- An approx. 6x6" needlepoint on Aida cloth that says in dainty letters, "F*** your gender". (The actual piece has it spelled out, and I'm not posting a photo for obvious reasons.)

- Loves Me/Loves Me Not wheel, in plastic packaging, comes with envelope for mailing. Spin the wheel instead of picking a poor daisy's petals off! There are also answers like those of a Magic 8-Ball inside of the wheel (in the 2nd picture), with a window on the outer/top wheel.  

- Foam bear stamp

- Book entitled "Water" for altered book project. It's an old USDA Agricultural Yearbook publication, available online in full-text, but the best part is this great bookcover of a disembodied cow head arising from the water! I've already pulled out several pages to facilitate less-bulky altering; my original idea was to make the book about this cow named Water who was out for revenge...but the idea never went anywhere. It's got good potential, though:  

- 2 bilingual teddy-bear rubber stamps, one says “Excelente! / Excellent!” and the other says “Bueno / good”

- 4 handmade journals made from recycled materials. I will try to send ones that match your taste. This one is just a sample front and back:

- Approx. 1 FQ of dense, green patterned felt. It has the colors of camouflage, but the print is foresty. I have a few of these.

- "Blood Sweat and Tears" in a jar, rubber stamp


Or, pick any TWO of the following:

- about 2 dozen small wooden spools (no thread attached)

- at least a dozen cream-colored crocheted circles, not made by me. They are coaster-sized, but have a bumpy design on the top which wouldn't be good for coaster usage.

- 2 Stampin' Up wood blocks for mounting rubber stamps; one has the adhesive it needs but the other you'd have to glue.

- small star-book, ala …Can be in any color of your choosing.

- set of custom scrapbooking/journaling tags

- Bob Marley book, by Margaret E Ward (ISBN #0681418664). 80 pages. Good condition, has TONS of color and b&w images, it could be kept for its original booky purpose or torn into for reuse of the images.

- 4 matching vintage schoolhouse cutouts. Appr. 8" tall, some with a reversed design so they can be placed back-to-back. Small hole in the top of each. Would make a great cover for a round-robin journal/book about school life.

- Set of rolls of color-coded stickers with days of the week, in a few languages. They're in a floppy plastic enclosure that keeps them together.  

- 3-d paper Muppet Show centerpiece, circa 1980.  

-  6 vials of embossing powder (copper, gold, silver, red, blue, and green):

- Vintage half-apron with pocket. Has some small grease-stains on it.

- unopened package of Regency cross-stitch fabric / aida cloth, 14 count. 1 piece, oatmeal-color, 15x18”, 100% cotton. I have 3 of these.

- pack of several translucent red vinyl records

- set of custom scrapbooking/journaling tags

- about 1 FQ of this cotton fabric

- 2 Christmas-themed rubber stamps, kinda big.

- heart-shaped cozy for...something. Maybe a perfume bottle? I didn't make this, it was thrifted.



Or pick ONE:

- set of mismatched celestial rubber stamps

- about 1 yard of this vintagey fabric:

- grab-bag of random rubber stamps, such as these (but more)

- about a yard of this puckered diver fabric

- wooden dollhouse furniture kit from 1982, with some of the items already assembled.

- vintage woodburning kit in original box. It works but doesn’t get as hot as it should.

- Flat Rate box full of vintage ephemera…will definitely tailor the package to your likings. I have a bunch of sheet music, book pages and illustrations, old diagrams, children’s book pictures, photos, art, on and on.

- set of big molded crayons

- Hardcover recon journal with standard glue-binding. Examples of book covers coming soon.

- Sculpey Push-Mold - Art Doll faces. See link for photo/description:


- “Food stamps” – box of small rubber stamps with images of fruits and vegetables.

- set of 8 Mary Englebright rubber stamps. “Oh no”, “Snap out of it”, “From your secret love”, “The queen of everything,” “The princess of quite a lot” (those 2 clearly go together), “Life’s too mysterious, don’t take it serious”, and 2 with just the ladies on them and no words.

- Vintage floral half-apron with pockets on inside

- Scarf (not made by me), about 3 ft long.

- Vintage children’s book recon 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.

Vintage children’s picture books and 1950s-60s elementary school textbooks. Pictures forthcoming.

- K & Company “Light Ideas” - 3D adhesive scrapbook images with “Hey Diddle Diddle”/baby theme, the moon lights up with led lights for 20 seconds at a time.

- Red satiny, asian-print photo album (store-bought). Book measures approx 9x8”, and can hold up to 180 pictures up to 4x6”

- A bunch of old gouache. Most colors fall in the range of purple to pink; no duplicate colors.

- over a dozen "Stitch and Sew" magazines from the 1970s-80s

I'm going to try to go through stuff from my stash tonight and put up more items.  I do have a fat quarter of Care Bears fabric to put up.  I think it was part of a 'reject' bolt.  The only colors on it are yellow, orange and green.  No rainbows or blues or whatever....I think it is neat, but I only had the one fat quarter of it and PLENTY of other Care Bears stuff.  I will put it under the PICK 2 category when I get a chance...so if you want it and one other PICK 2 item, go ahead and claim and post your list to keep this going!

EDIT:  OK, I can do custom cell phone charms too!  Here is a couple example pics to give you an idea




Combo of glass and plastic beads on clear stretch cord.  These are durable, lemme tell ya...had 2 on my Razr before I got my new phone (with no thingy to put one on *CRY*) and I beat it around in my purse, tugged on it from my pocket by the charms and it NEVER came apart or broke for well over a year.  Tell me your colors/charms and I will make it happen!

I'm STILL gonna get through my stash HOPEFULLY tomorrow between hanging out with my mom and yardwork :)

Me again...I'd like to claim a set of purpleone's mini face cloths and the Olde Alphabet Sublime Stitching sheet.

I am in California and I’m in a non-smoking house with a dog.

Claims this month: 6
Claims allowed (outstanding): 3
Sendouts not sent: 1
Sendouts in transit: 0
Sendouts received:  5

My list:


 For your claim, you can pick any THREE of the following (or one thing from the "pick 2" list and 1-2 things from this "pick 3" list):

- not made by me - painted enameled (I think?) switchplate

- large stencil of cows and barnyard

- partial skein of light lavender "Nice 'N Nubby" yarn

- 6 small vintage "open house" cards with envelopes  

- 2 unfinished wooden door-hangers for decorating

- about 1 FQ of bright red fake/fun-fur

- An approx. 6x6" needlepoint on Aida cloth that says in dainty letters, "F*** your gender". (The actual piece has it spelled out, and I'm not posting a photo for obvious reasons.)

- Loves Me/Loves Me Not wheel, in plastic packaging, comes with envelope for mailing. Spin the wheel instead of picking a poor daisy's petals off! There are also answers like those of a Magic 8-Ball inside of the wheel (in the 2nd picture), with a window on the outer/top wheel.  

- Foam bear stamp

- Book entitled "Water" for altered book project. It's an old USDA Agricultural Yearbook publication, available online in full-text, but the best part is this great bookcover of a disembodied cow head arising from the water! I've already pulled out several pages to facilitate less-bulky altering; my original idea was to make the book about this cow named Water who was out for revenge...but the idea never went anywhere. It's got good potential, though:  

- 2 bilingual teddy-bear rubber stamps, one says “Excelente! / Excellent!” and the other says “Bueno / good”

- 4 handmade journals made from recycled materials. I will try to send ones that match your taste. This one is just a sample front and back:


- Approx. 1 FQ of dense, green patterned felt. It has the colors of camouflage, but the print is foresty. I have a few of these.


- "Blood Sweat and Tears" in a jar, rubber stamp


Or, pick any TWO of the following:

- about 2 dozen small wooden spools (no thread attached)

- at least a dozen cream-colored crocheted circles, not made by me. They are coaster-sized, but have a bumpy design on the top which wouldn't be good for coaster usage.

- 2 Stampin' Up wood blocks for mounting larger rubber stamps; one has the adhesive it needs but the other you'd have to glue.

- small star-book,…Can be in any color of your choosing.

- set of custom scrapbooking/journaling tags

- Bob Marley book, by Margaret E Ward (ISBN #0681418664). 80 pages. Good condition, has TONS of color and b&w images, it could be kept for its original booky purpose or torn into for reuse of the images.

- 4 matching vintage schoolhouse cutouts. Appr. 8" tall, some with a reversed design so they can be placed back-to-back. Small hole in the top of each. Would make a great cover for a round-robin journal/book about school life.

- Set of rolls of color-coded stickers with days of the week, in a few languages. They're in a floppy plastic enclosure that keeps them together.  

- 3-d paper Muppet Show centerpiece, circa 1980.  

- Vintage half-apron with pocket. Has some small grease-stains on it.

- unopened package of Regency cross-stitch fabric / aida cloth, 14 count. 1 piece, oatmeal-color, 15x18”, 100% cotton. I have 3 of these.

- pack of several translucent red vinyl records

- set of custom scrapbooking/journaling tags

- about 1 FQ of this cotton fabric

- 2 Christmas-themed rubber stamps, kinda big.

- heart-shaped cozy for...something. Maybe a perfume bottle? I didn't make this, it was thrifted.

- set of about half a dozen retro glittery heat-transfer images for t-shirts or totes. There's a big smiley/scary sun, a panda, a California logo, a tiger, others...They can be transfered with a really good, really hot iron if you don't have a heat-press thing like the t-shirt stores do, but you have to work at it and keep lots of pressure on the iron for a long time.

- about 1 yard of this vintagey fabric: [



Or pick ONE:

- grab-bag of random rubber stamps, such as these (but more):

- about a yard of this puckered diver fabric:

- wooden dollhouse furniture kit from 1982, with some of the items already assembled.

- vintage woodburning kit in original box. It works but doesn’t get as hot as it should.

- Flat Rate box full of vintage ephemera…will definitely tailor the package to your likings. I have a bunch of sheet music, book pages and illustrations, old diagrams, children’s book pictures, photos, art, on and on.

- set of big molded crayons, star-shaped and/or dome-shaped

- Hardcover recon journal with standard glue-binding. Examples of book covers coming soon.

- Sculpey Push-Mold - Art Doll faces. See link for photo/description:


- “Food stamps” – box of at least 15 small rubber stamps with images of fruits and vegetables.

- Vintage floral half-apron with pockets on inside

- Scarf (not made by me), about 3 ft long.

- Vintage children’s book recon 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.

- K & Company “Light Ideas” - 3D adhesive scrapbook images with “Hey Diddle Diddle”/baby theme, the moon lights up with led lights for 20 seconds at a time.

- A bunch of old gouache. Most colors fall in the range of purple to pink; no duplicate colors.

Post by: astormorray on May 13, 2008 12:58:17 PM
ooh!  I claim the bobbin case and the wooden beadish things on elastic strings.  neat.

This is my second claim, of three allowed
one sent and received.
one claimed and received.
and then this one...  clearly, I still don't understand this part ::)

list:

Choose one:

- One linoleum block (mounted on wood) carved by me, based on a illustration my sister drew of a starving dog.
http://pics.livejournal.com/astormorray/pic/000657qt

- One half of a kirigami-a-day calendar, untouched between June and December, with lots of earlier also untouched pages and instructions.  Can be used as intended, or as origami paper.  That's over 120 pieces of paper.... and there are more colors than I represent here.
http://pics.livejournal.com/astormorray/pic/00062fea

- 3 oz of superwash merino roving hand-dyed green.  No pictures, as it's going to be dyed tonight. :)

-8 skeins of peach Unger "fluffy."  100% acrylic, but really quite soft and, yes, fluffy.  (it's about a US 4 needle size, though they recommend 6 on the label)
http://pics.livejournal.com/astormorray/pic/0005be6h

-one lot of fake fur, a little more than a fat quarter of both:
http://pics.livejournal.com/astormorray/pic/0005dsab

- a book about making small soft toys, looks like it's from the early 80s?  http://pics.livejournal.com/astormorray/pic/0009372f

Or pick three:

-any fat quarter from this picture:
http://pics.livejournal.com/astormorray/pic/000808zx

-one random assortment of odds and ends for spinning.  It's got bleached and unbleached flax, 1-2 oz of very dark green alpaca roving, a number of unlabeled things, a small amount of something pink, and something teal, and some tencel.  It smells of smoke! (I don't smoke, but this came from someone who does, apparently.)

- Opened and used baby bedroom decor patterns MacCall's 8373 - I made only the ruffle and the bumper, and everything should still be in the package. 
http://pics.livejournal.com/astormorray/pic/0005q0zx

- lot of sticky-backed foam letters.  This is just a sample of the font and the colors.  There may be more colors, but in the neon vein.  Seriously, I have many, many of these, about 1 inch high.

This is my third claim, of three allowed.  And I still have one available.
one sent and received.
one claimed and received.
two claimed and still waiting.  clearly, I still don't understand this part ::)

list:

Choose one:

- piece of handwoven fabric (not made by me.  Although, as of today, I own a loom! *gulp*)  Anyway, it's blue warp with a purple and green weft, made with sportweight yarn, which feels like wool, but I could be wrong...
About 18"x22", hemmed on one end, tasseled on the other, probably originally part of a larger piece, the tassels (not included in the measurements) are about 8" long.
http://pics.livejournal.com/astormorray/pic/00094w5g

- One linoleum block (mounted on wood) carved by me, based on a illustration my sister drew of a starving dog.
http://pics.livejournal.com/astormorray/pic/000657qt

(reserved for sewknitter, please) -8 skeins of peach Unger "fluffy."  100% acrylic, but really quite soft and, yes, fluffy.  (it's about a US 4 needle size, though they recommend 6 on the label)
http://pics.livejournal.com/astormorray/pic/0005be6h

- five skeins of yellow acryllic (probably, but no label) sport weight yarn.
These are big skeins, but I left my scale upstairs, so I can't weight them.  http://pics.livejournal.com/astormorray/pic/000953zw

-one lot of fake fur, a little more than a fat quarter of both:
http://pics.livejournal.com/astormorray/pic/0005dsab

- a book about making small toys, published 1980 
http://pics.livejournal.com/astormorray/pic/0009372f

Or pick four:

-any fat quarter from this picture:

-one pair of metal knitting needles size four, your choice lavender or pale green.

Can I just get the cup cozy and the needle roll? (I'll try embellishing it too, and then pass it along to someone else since I don't do any knitting!)

I am in California and I’m in a non-smoking house with a dog.

Claims this month: 7
Claims allowed (outstanding): 3
Sendouts not sent: 0
Sendouts in transit: 2
Sendouts received:  5

My list:

 For your claim, you can pick any THREE of the following (or one thing from the "pick 2" list and 1-2 things from this "pick 3" list):

- not made by me - painted enameled (I think?) switchplate

- large stencil of cows and barnyard

- 6 small vintage "open house" cards with envelopes  

- 2 unfinished wooden door-hangers for decorating

- about 1 FQ of bright red fake/fun-fur

- An approx. 6x6" needlepoint on Aida cloth that says in dainty letters, "F*** your gender". (The actual piece has it spelled out, and I'm not posting a photo for obvious reasons.)

- Loves Me/Loves Me Not wheel, in plastic packaging, comes with envelope for mailing. Spin the wheel instead of picking a poor daisy's petals off! There are also answers like those of a Magic 8-Ball inside of the wheel (in the 2nd picture), with a window on the outer/top wheel.  

- Foam bear stamp

- Book entitled "Water" for altered book project. It's an old USDA Agricultural Yearbook publication, available online in full-text, but the best part is this great bookcover of a disembodied cow head arising from the water! I've already pulled out several pages to facilitate less-bulky altering; my original idea was to make the book about this cow named Water who was out for revenge...but the idea never went anywhere. It's got good potential, though:

- 2 bilingual teddy-bear rubber stamps, one says “Excelente! / Excellent!” and the other says “Bueno / good”

- 4 handmade soft-cover journals made from recycled materials. About 20 useable pages in each. I will try to send ones that match your taste. This one is just a sample front and back:

- Approx. 1 FQ of dense, green patterned felt. It has the colors of camouflage, but the print is foresty. I have a few of these.

- "Blood Sweat and Tears" in a jar, rubber stamp



Or, pick any TWO of the following:

- a little over a yard of bright purple lycra (?) – bathing suit or leotard fabric

- over a yard of this polyester fabric; it stretches in the direction of the stripes.

- about 2 dozen small wooden spools (no thread attached)

- at least a dozen cream-colored crocheted circles, not made by me. They are coaster-sized, but have a bumpy design on the top which wouldn't be good for coaster usage.

- 2 Stampin' Up wood blocks for mounting larger rubber stamps; one has the adhesive it needs but the other you'd have to glue.

- set of custom scrapbooking/journaling tags

- Bob Marley book, by Margaret E Ward (ISBN #0681418664). 80 pages. Good condition, has TONS of color and b&w images, it could be kept for its original booky purpose or torn into for reuse of the images.

- 4 matching vintage schoolhouse cutouts. Appr. 8" tall, some with a reversed design so they can be placed back-to-back. Small hole in the top of each. Would make a great cover for a round-robin journal/book about school life.

- Set of rolls of color-coded stickers with days of the week, in a few languages. They're in a floppy plastic enclosure that keeps them together.  

- 3-d paper Muppet Show centerpiece, circa 1980.  

- Vintage half-apron with pocket. Has some small grease-stains on it.

- unopened package of Regency cross-stitch fabric / aida cloth, 14 count. 1 piece, oatmeal-color, 15x18”, 100% cotton. I have 3 of these.

- pack of several translucent red vinyl records, perfect for a project like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=244225.0

- about 1 FQ of this cotton fabric

- heart-shaped cozy for...something. Maybe a perfume bottle? I didn't make this, it was thrifted.

- about half a dozen different retro glittery heat-transfer images for t-shirts or totes. There's a big smiley/scary sun, a panda, a California logo, a tiger, others...They can be transfered with a really good, really hot iron if you don't have a heat-press thing like the t-shirt stores do, but you have to work at it and keep lots of pressure on the iron for a long time.



Or pick ONE:

- about 1 yard of this vintagey fabric:

- grab-bag of random rubber stamps, such as these (but more):

- about a yard of this puckered diver fabric:

- wooden dollhouse furniture kit from 1982, with some of the items already assembled.

- vintage woodburning kit in original box. It works but doesn’t get as hot as it should.

- Flat Rate box full of vintage ephemera…will definitely tailor the package to your likings. I have a bunch of sheet music, book pages and illustrations, old diagrams, children’s book pictures, photos, art, on and on.

- set of big molded crayons

- Sculpey Push-Mold - Art Doll faces. See link for photo/description:

- Vintage floral half-apron with pockets on inside

- Scarf (not made by me), about 3 ft long.

- Vintage children’s book recon 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.

- K & Company “Light Ideas” - 3D adhesive scrapbook images with “Hey Diddle Diddle”/baby theme, the moon lights up with led lights for 20 seconds at a time.

- recon journal with unlined pink paper

- another recon journal from the same 1960s encyclopedia series. This one has a mix of blue, pink and purple unlined paper, with some pages from the original book included.

- set of 24 pastel chalks for scrapbooking and decorating rubber stamped images. Acid-free, non-toxic; apply to paper with an eyeshadow applicator (not included).

- Book entitled "Water" for altered book project. It's an old USDA Agricultural Yearbook publication, available online in full-text, but the best part is this great bookcover of a disembodied cow head arising from the water! I've already pulled out several pages to facilitate less-bulky altering; my original idea was to make the book about this cow named Water who was out for revenge...but the idea never went anywhere. It's got good potential, though:  

- 2 bilingual teddy-bear rubber stamps, one says “Excelente! / Excellent!” and the other says “Bueno / good”

- 4 handmade journals made from recycled materials. I will try to send ones that match your taste. This one is just a sample front and back:

- Approx. 1 FQ of dense, green patterned felt. It has the colors of camouflage, but the print is foresty. I have a few of these.

- "Blood Sweat and Tears" in a jar, rubber stamp

- a little over a yard of bright purple lycra (?) – bathing suit or leotard fabric

- at least a dozen cream-colored crocheted circles, not made by me. They are coaster-sized, but have a bumpy design on the top which wouldn't be good for coaster usage.

- heart-shaped cozy for...something. Maybe a perfume bottle? I didn't make this, it was thrifted.



Or, pick any TWO of the following from these:

- over a yard of this polyester fabric; it stretches in the direction of the stripes.

- about 2 dozen small wooden spools (no thread attached)

- 2 Stampin' Up wood blocks for mounting larger rubber stamps; one has the adhesive it needs but the other you'd have to glue.

- set of custom scrapbooking/journaling tags (tell me what you want and then I’ll make them)

- Bob Marley book, by Margaret E Ward (ISBN #0681418664). 80 pages. Good condition, has TONS of color and b&w images, it could be kept for its original booky purpose or torn into for reuse of the images.

- 4 matching vintage schoolhouse cutouts. Appr. 8" tall, some with a reversed design so they can be placed back-to-back. Small hole in the top of each. Would make a great cover for a round-robin journal/book about school life.

- Set of rolls of color-coded stickers with days of the week, in a few languages. They're in a floppy plastic enclosure that keeps them together.  

- 3-d paper Muppet Show centerpiece, circa 1980.  

- Vintage half-apron with pocket. Has some small grease-stains on it.

- pack of several translucent red vinyl records, perfect for a project like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=244225.0

- about 1 FQ of this cotton fabric

- set of about half a dozen retro glittery heat-transfer images for t-shirts or totes. There's a big smiley/scary sun, a panda, a California logo, a tiger, others...They can be transfered with a really good, really hot iron if you don't have a heat-press thing like the t-shirt stores do, but you have to work at it and keep lots of pressure on the iron for a long time.

- 2 tubes of Speedball block printing ink, 37cc (1.3 liquid oz.). One is red, one is yellow.

- 2 yds of this black/white fabric trim that says “Solitude”



Or pick ONE of these:

- 5 yds of this woven fabric trim

- 4 small circuitboards (?). They are almost flat on the back.

- set of plastic small alphabet “cookie cutters”…They are probably better suited for clay or resin because they’re so small. I’ll get a photo of them at some point.

- about 1 yard of this vintagey fabric

- grab-bag of random rubber stamps, such as these (but more)

- about a yard of this puckered diver fabric

- wooden dollhouse furniture kit from 1982, with some of the items already assembled.

- vintage woodburning kit in original box. It works but doesn’t get as hot as it should.

- set of big molded crayons (they will be half-domes, stars, and or jello-mould shaped)

- flexible Sculpey Push-Mold - Art Doll faces. See link for photo/description:


- Vintage floral half-apron with pockets on inside

- Scarf (not made by me), about 3 ft long

- Vintage children’s book recon 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.

- K & Company “Light Ideas” - 3D adhesive scrapbook images with “Hey Diddle Diddle”/baby theme, the moon lights up with led lights for 20 seconds at a time.

- recon journal with unlined pink paper

- another recon journal from the same 1960s encyclopedia series. This one has a mix of blue, pink and purple unlined paper, with some pages from the original book included.

- set of 24 pastel chalks for scrapbooking and decorating rubber stamped images. Acid-free, non-toxic; apply to paper with an eyeshadow applicator (not included).

I've sent a PM to calluna, but I'd like to claim  grab-bag of random rubber stamps, such as these (but more). (what can I say? I am a rubber stamp addict, heehee.)

This my 4th claim
sent 2 claims off
one is in transit
one was received
and I have to purchase beads or thread to do astormorray's bracelet, which will be late, but astormorray said she understood.

(okay -- I'm off to bed, and then away tomorrow -- I'm offering tatted bookmarks, tatted bracelet, or a tatted daisy on ecru fabric cuff if I'm allowed) If I'm disallowed just skip me. I won't know this until Saturday evening.



Title: Re: Ongoing Offer-What-You-Have Swap - May08

It's all good...Proceed with claiming from sewknitter!

Post by: sewknitter on May 23, 2008 07:37:38 PM
tatting is a knotted art, I do 48 knots per inch, and it takes an hour to do about 4 inches. I buy very expensive, variegated cotton and rayon threads to do this. the beads are all glass beads. Clasps are all silver plated.

these are cool and comfortable to wear year round. If you have a metal allergy, I can make ties for them.

NEW:
Would anyone like a tatting kit? Includes various threads, a shuttle, a joining hook, a CD with pictures illustrating HOW to shuttle tat, 5 books of patterns and several patterns to do as a beginner:  3D flower on wire; Greeting card; Bookmark (or bracelet); Beaded pendant.

NEW:
Here is a color card, I am ordering ALL the colors, so I should be able to do lots of custom colorations.
  • each bracelet is choice two colors,
  • bookmarks are one color,
  • the tatted daisy cuff is  usually one color, but I can alternate daisies' colors if you want two or more colors on the cuff. Cuff is plain shade of fabric. I have green, shades of brown from ecru to deep chocolate, and black, or white.

pdf of colors (http://www.dmc.com/mjRS/1/doc/Cartes_couleurs/Color_Variations_Color_Card_W417ARL.pdf)

Custom colors are within the colors I have in stock (see card above), custom sizing from 4" to 9" which includes a magnetic or toggle clasp. (you stick one end of the "T" through the loop.)

I'm interested in the pants pattern, but am wondering what the specific waist/hip sizes are for the sizes you listed.  I tried to google this pattern, but it looks like the sizing really varies depending on how the pattern was released.  Is the pattern uncut?  Could I get a photo of the back of the pattern so I can see the size range?

More eyes, send me more eyes!  :D (the cat-eyes, not the googly-eyes, please)

I get so mixed up sometimes; it feels like I’m making too many claims for my limit, but I can’t find evidence of that…Anyway, I am in California and I’m in a non-smoking house with a dog.

Claims this month: 12
Claims allowed (outstanding): 3
Sendouts not sent: 0
Sendouts in transit: 2
Sendouts received:  9

My list:

For your claim, you can pick any THREE of the following (or one thing from the "pick 2" list and 1-2 things from this "pick 3" list):

- big skein of dye-able yarn

- 3 sheets of clear PVC pocket storage for “inchies” or 35mm slides, for putting into 3-ring binder. 2”x2” pockets, and really hard to photograph since they’re clear!

- not made by me - painted enameled (I think?) switchplate

- large stencil of cows and barnyard

- 6 small vintage "open house" cards with envelopes  

- 2 unfinished wooden door-hangers for decorating

- Loves Me/Loves Me Not wheel, in plastic packaging, comes with envelope for mailing. Spin the wheel instead of picking a poor daisy's petals off! There are also answers like those of a Magic 8-Ball inside of the wheel (in the 2nd picture), with a window on the outer/top wheel.  

- Foam bear stamp

- Book entitled "Water" for altered book project. It's an old USDA Agricultural Yearbook publication, available online in full-text, but the best part is this great bookcover of a disembodied cow head arising from the water! I've already pulled out several pages to facilitate less-bulky altering; my original idea was to make the book about this cow named Water who was out for revenge...but the idea never went anywhere. It's got good potential, though:  

- 2 bilingual teddy-bear rubber stamps, one says “Excelente! / Excellent!” and the other says “Bueno / good”

- 4 handmade journals made from recycled materials. I will try to send ones that match your taste. This one is just a sample front and back:

- Approx. 1 FQ of dense, green patterned felt. It has the colors of camouflage, but the print is foresty. I have a few of these.

- at least a dozen cream-colored crocheted circles, not made by me. They are coaster-sized, but have a bumpy design on the top which wouldn't be good for coaster usage.

- heart-shaped cozy for...something. Maybe a perfume bottle? I didn't make this, it was thrifted.

- pack of several OLD, regular black, 12” vinyl records (covers not included). More dense/thick than usual vinyl.

- 2 Stampin' Up wood blocks for mounting larger rubber stamps; one has the adhesive it needs but the other you'd have to glue.



Or, pick any TWO of the following from these:

- about 2 dozen small wooden spools (no thread attached)

- set of custom scrapbooking/journaling tags (tell me what you want and then I’ll make them)

- Bob Marley book, by Margaret E Ward (ISBN #0681418664). 80 pages. Good condition, has TONS of color and b&w images, it could be kept for its original booky purpose or torn into for reuse of the images.

- 4 matching vintage schoolhouse cutouts. Appr. 8" tall, some with a reversed design so they can be placed back-to-back. Small hole in the top of each. Would make a great cover for a round-robin journal/book about school life.

- Set of rolls of color-coded stickers with days of the week, in a few languages. They're in a floppy plastic enclosure that keeps them together.  

- 3-d paper Muppet Show centerpiece, circa 1980.  

- Vintage half-apron with pocket. Has some small grease-stains on it.

- pack of several translucent red vinyl records, perfect for a project like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=244225.0

- set of about half a dozen retro glittery heat-transfer images for t-shirts or totes. There's a big smiley/scary sun, a panda, a California logo, a tiger, others...They can be transferred with a really good, really hot iron if you don't have a heat-press thing like the t-shirt stores do, but you have to work at it and keep lots of pressure on the iron for a long time.

- 2 tubes of Speedball block printing ink, 37cc (1.3 liquid oz.). One is red, one is yellow.





Or pick ONE of these:

- set of plastic small alphabet “cookie cutters”…They are probably better suited for clay or resin because they’re so small. I’ll get a photo of them at some point.

- wooden dollhouse furniture kit from 1982, with some of the items already assembled.

- vintage woodburning kit in original box. It works but doesn’t get as hot as it should.

- set of big molded crayons (they will be half-domes, stars, and or jello-mould shaped)

- flexible Sculpey Push-Mold - Art Doll faces. See link for photo/description:

- Vintage floral half-apron with pockets on inside

- Scarf (not made by me), about 3 ft long.

- Vintage children’s book recon 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.

- K & Company “Light Ideas” - 3D adhesive scrapbook images with “Hey Diddle Diddle”/baby theme, the moon lights up with led lights for 20 seconds at a time.

- recon journal with unlined pink paper

- another recon journal from the same 1960s encyclopedia series. This one has a mix of blue, pink and purple unlined paper, with some pages from the original book included.

- set of 24 pastel chalks for scrapbooking and decorating rubber stamped images. Acid-free, non-toxic; apply to paper with an eyeshadow applicator (not included).
