All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!

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 can’t spend points that you don’t have (no overdraft here) and you can’t hoard your points under your mattress (you must close and go shopping when you have +7 points).  

- 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 people’s wishlists and use the discussion thread for brainstorming any new items to offer in your shop.


-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.


-Each round will need a space in your swap profile
-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 an angel can be arranged.
-You are responsible for signing up 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.

-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 end 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!

-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 CRAFSTER 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.

-It is your responsibility to keep relevant people informed of your shop and claim status
-all claim/send/receive pm’s 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:

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)
-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 this 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)

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 people’s shops can be included at the bottom of your shop  


Claim/Send/Receive pm format

All pm’s must be sent to all 3 organizers alteredmommy, lapoli, loves2experiment AND the person you are claiming/sending/receiving from.  All pm’s 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: “alteredmommy””lapoli””loves2experiment”person you are claiming from
Subject: STS 29 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 don’t 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 pm’s 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 pm’s>>

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)>>
<<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

<<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….>>

<<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 everyone’s shops on occasion to add up points and make sure we’re 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 haven’t updated recently or when the points list hasn't been updated in the last 5 minutes!

If you have any further questions, please don’t hestitate to pm the organizers!!!

Basics: I own a smoke-free home near Chicago, IL (USA).

[click on any picture to see a REALLY HUGE version...]

Beaded Chapsticks - 2 points

Description: Made by me using only thread and Delica beads. They are designed to slide on a standard "Chapstick" brand lip balm tube (one is included). The majority of patterns are my own creation, although some are inspired by photos of things others have done.  They take about the duration of a movie (1.5-2 hours) to complete.  They are made from exclusively little glass beads and a fine nylon thread.  I try to make sure that knots are secure, and I use a "locking" stitch on every other row, so if the thread breaks, you don't lose the whole thing.  I have one in my purse.  Its been in there for more than 5 years now, without any repairs.  The beads look somewhat worn, and one or two beads have broken and are missing.  People have informed me that dropping them on concrete will, indeed, break the beads, and wear on the top and bottom (where the threads are visible) will cause the thread to break.


FINALLY!!  Here are pictures of each chapstick available.  Click on the pictures for larger view. Claim by group letter (A, B or C) then number. (beaded chapstick A-12 (2 points))  X instead of a number means already claimed. (Feel free to add words like "the green dragon")

Note: I sold C1 at a craft show this weekend, but I am at work, and can't edit the pictures.

Group A:   (  

Group B:   (

Crochet Turtles - 1 Point

Description: Crocheted by me using the free "Tiny Striped Turtle" pattern from Crochetville.  They are about 4 inches from nose to tail.

   * Navy Blue with sparkly white stripes - back row, #5 - claim as "navy/white turtle (1)"

Plum Wine and Rose Violet are the color names from the Simply Soft yarn that I used.  I would have used dusty rose instead of plum wine.

Crochet Dragons - 2 Points

Description: Crocheted by me using the free "Baby Snow Dragon" pattern from Crochetville.  There are 3 basic sizes.  Large (bulky weight yarns) are about 8 inches tall, medium (worsted weight yarns) are about 6 inches tall, and the small ones (baby yarns) are about 5 inches tall.

Beaded Witch Earrings - 2 Points

Please claim as "<color> Witch Earrings (2)"

Description: Made only from beads and thread with my own paws.  Each little witch is different.  Most have red and white stockings, black shoes, a little broom, pearl heads, and surgical steel hooks.  Several have wooden beads for heads.  The yellow ones are "princesses", and carry a magic wand instead of a little broom.  The two points includes a "matching pair", meaning a witch with a left-facing broom, and a right-facing broom.  (The color names are from the tubes of beads that I use for these)

Little Monster Purses - 3 Points

Please claim as "<color> Monster Purse (3)"


Description: Each little purse is hand made by me from a pattern of my own design.  The purse is about 7 inches from side to side. I made the original of this purse for my now 5 year old daughter.  Each purse if fully lined, has a Velcro closure, and the strap is firmly sewn into place.  The lining fabrics vary, but most are flannel. The teeth and eyes are vinyl fabric.  The eyes are satin stitched into place, and the "glint" in each eye is embroidered on.  They come in a variety of colors.

Here is a picture of the inside of one: (

Hello! I'm a wife of 3 years and we have 7, 4 legged, children. They are 1 giant yellow dog, 4 crazy cats, and 2 silly ferrets. The ferrets are caged for their own safety. The dog is in the craft room but in a kennel and all craft items are kept in plastic or out of reach. Cat hair is pretty common but I am totally willing to wash/lint roll, and items you claim. We do not smoke.
(unless I set a small toaster oven fire. It's been known to happen.)
I live in the Southern part of the USA.

2 Point Items:
Custom Messenger bag
( ( ( ( (
Bag measures approx: 3 inches thick at the gusset, 7-10 inches deep, 12 inches wide at mouth, 15 inches wide at base. I can directly measure the pattern if you want exact measurements.
I can make your bag in up to 4 colors. I can also make the strap longer or shorter. You bag will have the second-5th pictures design for the tab the swivel snap is attached to.
Info I need when you claim:
Color of front:
Color of back/flap:
lining color:
Strap front color:
Strap back color:
closure tab color:
If yes 1 large or 2 small:
Length of strap:

If you are looking for a particular color scheme check out my photobucket of my fabric stash:
If you are looking for a solid I don't have just let me know I can easily acquire it. :)

Marisol mouse:
Knit with acrylic yarns. Body is simply soft and pink bits are harrahs yarn. :) My first "in the round" project! It will come with a purple ribbon aorund it's neck. :)
( (

Amigurumi Alpaca or horse
I can make these in any solid color.
( (
specify color desired. Give me 2 color choices in case I don't have the first choice on hand.

Custom beaded/felt cuff
Can be made in most simple designs. I just need the following info:
Wrist measurement:
Design: (please limit to 3 colors, if you want more than that pm me and we'll discuss it)

1 Point Items:

Mystery bag of scrap fabric!
Small sandwich bag of scraps left over from various projects. I toss all my scraps in a box and it's time to purge the box. They are varying in types but mostly cotton and alova suede. Scraps range from 1/2 inch -4 inches in width and length. Most are at least 1/2 inch in some area. I'll make sure to throw a few larger piece in the bag so you get some good scraps!
Great for crazy quilting!

Little Ditty Bag
Teal claimed by aeronberry!!! I can make one more in this color though if someone wants it! Lavender is available. Bags are between 4-6 inches tall and about that wide around the circular bottom.
I can make these taller by doubling yarn for 2 points. Don't see a color you like? PM me and I'll see what's in my stash same point value!
( (

1/2 Point Items

Crocheted  Cuff
Made with acrylic baby fine yarn and crocheted. This has delicate plastic pearl buttons and is really easy to fasten. It's a bit too big for my wrist and my wrist measures 7 inches:

Safety Pin Earrings
Can be made with any solid or 2 colors. The current pair is green/clear. I can also do up to 2 safety pins per earring.
They are permanently closed so you do not risk them popping open and spilling beads everywhere.
( (

Pop-tab Earrings
Made with pop tabs from real soda pop cans. They are extremely lightweight and feel like you aren't wearing anything! Please note that my wire wrapping is much better now than it was then. These are my personal pair and they are about 2 years old. you will receive a brand new pair.

Please note: style of pop tab may vary slightly as they are donated to me and typically brands vary slightly.
( (

Instant shirt
Made from remnant from wal*mart. The shirts seams are all serged and you get the little tie shown as well so you can add straps if you like. It's shown on my mannequin and the bust measures about 36 inches there. However it is a bit loose and will easily stretch at least to a 38 inch bust. Possibly a bit more.

Top: poly green fabric(at least 1 yard), blue spandex type mystery fabric(I think there is over 2 yards of this), Pink table runner

! Nessa's Shop !

I'm a 19 yo art student living in a small town in NY. I have an adorable kitten who likes to eat my roving as I'm spinning. I live in a smoking household, keep all my crafts in air tight containers and bludgeon anyone who smokes in the vicinity of my craftiness.


ColorBox [2]
[red, yellow, green, blue, brown, lilac]
1.2 oz of hand pulled roving. This is a blend of cormo, alpaca, a bit of mill end wool, and bamboo. This will definitely make a super-funky, lumpy-bumpy yarn, don't expect to get an even yarn from this one! (unless, of course, you are insanely patient) I can make more of this if anyone's interested.

( (

Tie Dyed Socks!!!
One for 1 point, Three for 2 points, Five for 3 points

The brand is No nonsense and they're all womens size 9-11. The colors look a little off on my computer... #s 2 and 5 are turquoise and deep purple. 4 and 6 are grey and pink.
[1, 3, 5, 7, 9]

[*my mannequin is a size Medium*]

Tie dyed summer shirt [1pt]
Brand: Amelia Size M 100% Cotton, super soft and light. Dyed with blue and yellow, with a lot of white still showing.

( (

Furoshiki bag [.5]
Furoshiki's are made using a square of fabric. They can be tied in lot's of different ways to make different style bags for gift wrapping and such. This one was tied in three places and makes an excellent over night bag... I could probably fit myself in it, if I scrunched up into a tight enough ball haha.

Jean bag [.5pt]
I made this soooo long ago. It's not lined, and the straps were decorative hangy-things from some jeans. It's simple and silly, but maybe someone could find use for it?


Custom Mary Jane Slippers! [3 pt]
Made of 100% acrylic yarn so they are machine washable! I can do any size, and nearly any color. PM me before you claim so I can make sure I have the colors you want! Here are a bunch of examples:

Handmade Vegan Soaps!! [1 pt]

Soap Samples [2/1pt]
CPHP soap with aloe. Choose between 4 scents: Fir Needle & Sandalwood, Nag Champa, White Tea & Ginger, Oatmeal Milk 'n Honey. Total weight is about 4oz for two bars.

Lavender & Vanilla[1]

Nag Champa & Sandalwood w/ Loofa [1]
When I first poured the soap into the mold with the loofah, I ended up with a hole through the middle where the soap didn't penetrate. So I made another batch to fill the middle [see the white-ish parts?] Might not be the prettiest soap... but it sure does smell good!

Joy of Almond:
CP soap with almond & coconut fragrance oil, swirled with cocoa powder. [get it? Almond Joy? hehe copyright infringement my arse]

Sandelwood & Coconut:
CP soap, smells mostly of sandelwood with very subtle undertones of coconut. I added coffee grounds for exfoliation.

Nag Champa:
CP soap with nag champa FO. Loooove this stuff.

Homemade vegan-friendly laundry soap! 1pt
I need to make more...
unscented and low sudsing. You get 1.5 cups that's enough for 24 (1 tbsp per load) washes in a regular machine, or 48 (1/2 tbsp per load) washes in an HE front loader.

Hemp Rings [1 .5 pt]: One size fits most (about a size 7 or 8,) but please specify if you want it smaller/larger! These rings stretch when they get wet, so keep this in mind! (and try not to get them wet too often, or let them air dry.)
Claim as: Ring 1, 2, 3

4, 5, 6

Fire Starters:
[4 for .5pt]
[10 for 1 pt]

Fire starters are made from toilet paper/paper towel tubes, cut up into 2" sections and filled with dryer lint. Great for camping, and bonfires. Choose between Red or Blue. or I could make them with a different color, just let me know!


'60s Stamp Set [2pts]

Stamp Set #2 [1pt]

Stamp pens [1pt]
Hardly ever used. I went through a scrapbooking/stamping phase when I was 12, and lets just say it didn't last very long haha.

Computer Paper [1pt for all]
The two on the right are opened, but I only used a few sheets, so they've got about 40 sheets in them. The one on the left is unopened and it has 50 sheets.

Cute Bandanna's [.5pt each]
Comes with two complimenting bandannas. Choose from Monkeys, Watermelon, & Earthy.

Paint Stuffs [.5pt each]
on the right: Acrylic paints
on the left: Paint brush pens

This is a button-up cowl done in tunisian crochet.  The yarn is a soft wool/acrylic 50/50 blend.

Men's Fingerless Mitts (2)
I knit these up using Paton's SWS and while I find that yarn to be lovely and soft, my husband found the yarn to be itchy so he can't wear them.  Perfect for the guy in your life who doesn't have sensitive hands.  Careful...these will felt and should be handwashed gently!

1 Point Items

5"x7" Original Photography (matted to 8"x10") (2) (1)
These are all my original photographs taken from my portfolio.  I have matted these 5"x7" prints so they are ready for framing.  The mats are signed by me.  Please specify the title of the print in your claim.

NEW! Purple Beanie - Crochet (1)
This was crocheted up in a variegated purple to white acrylic yarn with cluster stitch.

Raspberry Lemonade Yarn (2)(1)
This is yarn recycled from a thrift store sweater that I then dyed using Kool Aid.  Fiber content is 35% Wool / 35% Acrylic / 30% Cotton.  It's 100 yards and is approx DK/Worsted weight.  There is one knot in the skein.

Scented Eye Pillows (1)
Inside of each pillow is rice, lightly scented with essential oils.  These can also be used either hot or cold.  For heat therapy, pop the pillow in the microwave for 20-30 seconds.  For cold therapy, place the pillow in a sealed bag and leave in the fridge or freezer until chilled.  Please specify blue, green or yellow in your claim.

0.5 Point Items
Please redeem in full points.  Thanks!

Crochet Baby Booties (0.5)
These are adorably cute and I give them to friends as baby shower gifts all the time.  I have an excess inventory though!  Please specify color in your claim.  Black and green pairs are gone!

Fuzzy Scarf (0.5)
Knit up with fun fur with large needles to give a nice soft and fuzzy scarf.  The scarves were designed to be shorter but with a lot of stretch due to the open stitch.  Please specify lavender or grey stripes in your claim

Golden Dangle Earrings (0.5)
I've been playing with learning wire wrapping and this is my prototype pair!  They are glass beads on gold wire - very cute and delicate.  

Rustled Up Socks Knitting Pattern (1) (0.5)
I designed this sock pattern in the fall, but the lacy leaf design would be a great spring/summer sock too!  This is for a pdf copy of the pattern that would be sent to you via e-mail.

0.25 Point Items
Please redeem in full points.  Thanks!

Fuzzy Pouch (0.25)
This fuzzy pouch was knit using a white acrylic yarn and some self-striping fun fur.  It's lined and has a button closure.  My husband's baby sister uses the one I made her for the tooth fairy!   :D

Photo Notecards (0.5) (0.25)
These are photo notecards that I bought as a big lot at a garage sale.  I can't quite date them, but they're all hand-mounted and the photos are by a local (Los Angeles) photographer.  Each claim is for 2 complimentary cards with matching envelopes.  Please specify the title of the cards in your claim.  

Silhouette LandscapesUmbrellas

Points noted next to items.  Please redeem in full points.  Thanks!

Mill End Roving (2) for 3oz
When I was first learning to spin, I ordered 3lbs of the brown tone mill end roving from Sheep Shed Studio.  I've still got a ton and would love to destash some so I can buy other roving!  I have over a lb available.  There is mohair in this, but I've found that it's pretty easy to separate.  The colors remind me of smores!

Mystery Yarn (0.25 pts)
I'm not sure where I got this or what exactly the type of yarn is.  Would probably work best for home decor type items.

2 Sailor Girl Vintage Notecards (0.25 pts)
Sweet image of a sailor girl with a nautical line-drawing behind her.  This is for 2 blank notecards with envelopes.  Perfect for paper crafting - would make a really cute notebook or scrapbook page theme.

The smaller photos are all clickety-clicks to larger images.

All crafted items come from a non-smoking household with one lovely beagle.

Crafted Items


Steampunk Animal Brooches - (2)
Please claim by name.
Bee 1, Whale, Frog, Gull, Butterfly

Mouse, Butterfly 2, Bee 2, Seahorse, Bird

Chunky Green Ring - (2)
Adjustable band, most comfortable for sizes 7 and up. Much more sparkly in real life.

Chunky Gold Bracelet - (2)
I can get measurements if anyone is interested, but this does fit my wrist and I have probably average to slightly-larger-than-average wrists. It has a closed-clasp-hinged thingie in the back (that you can't see in the photo).

Slender Gold Bracelet - (2)
I can get measurements if anyone is interested, but this does fit my wrist and I have probably average to slightly-larger-than-average wrists. It has an open back (as seen in the photo), so it is slightly adjustable.

Jasper Necklace - (2)
So much more beautiful than the photo shows. Approximately 16" long. (It doesn't have a weird kink in it, I had a hard time keeping it flat when taking my own picture.)

Stone Necklace - (2)

Chunky Tuna Necklace - (2)
This is a big necklace, not for the faint of heart. I'll double-check measurements, but this fish is about as long as my hand.

Gold Cross Necklace - (2)

Silver Cross Necklace - (2)

Steampunk Rings - (2)
All rings are adjustable. I can size it for you if you include your ring size in your pm, otherwise you can easily adjust it yourself.
Ring #1

Ring #3

Ring #4

Ring #5

Ring #6

Ring #7

Ring #8

Ring #9

Ring #10

Ring #12

Swarovsky Rings - (2)
Adjustable ring bases with sparkly swarovsky crystals. Please claim by color.



Mother and Child Cameo Necklace - (2)
Very intricate cameo with lots of detail. I'll attach a jump ring and an antiqued silver necklace before mailing.
( (


Simple Steampunk Necklace - (1) - TEMP ON HOLD FOR NESSE

Roll holder - (1)
Handmade, but not by me. Each of the words designate a city or region in Portugal. I was told that people use these to hold dinner rolls (but they weren't entirely certain that is what it was used for). First photo shows it flat, second photo shows it when you snap the two snaps closed.
( (

Vintage Typewriter Key Pendant - (1)
Add your own necklace through the sterling silver bail, or claim a delicate, 16" sterling silver necklace from me for an additional 1 point. Please specify which pendant you would like by symbol/letter/number. If you have a specific letter/key in mind, pm me! And if you want to claim three or more (for gifts or for you), pm me and I'll cut you a deal!


Filigree pendant with vintage watch movement - (0.5)
The watch movement is a teeny, tiny bit off level on this piece, so it's just one point. Comes with an antiqued gold necklace.

Mini-bookmarks - (0.5) each
Bookmarks are 3.5" tall, so they're great for both soft- and hardcover books. Contain Swarovski crystals for some sparkle! The first photo shows the shape and length of the bookmark (which is the same for all of them), and the subsequent photos show the different charms and crystals.


Purple Earrings - (0.5)

1/2 yard x 22" of the bees fabric, 8"x44" of the coordinating plaid - both are higher quality cottons

OPEN for Business!!!

1/2 point items:

Turtle Needlebook- .5

Curry Needlebook- .5

Girls Hot Dog Shirt-.25 REDUCED AGAIN!
This is a new pale pink American Apparel Classic Girl Shirt size M/OS (14 inches across chest when laying flat)
It looks like it would fit a preteen girl or a very thin adult.
Has an iron-on decal of a hot dog and says "hot diggity dog." Decal directions said it is dryer-safe but I would still hang to dry to be extra cautious.

Crib Queen Baby Sweatshirt -.25 REDUCED AGAIN!
This is a thrifted sweatshirt that says 6/9 months but I think it has shrunk significantly because it looks much small than that to me. It is almost 12 inches across under the arms and about 11.5 inches from neck to hem. Because of the iron-on words, this one should not be put in the dryer.

1 Point Items

Pen Holders - 1 point each
Have a brilliant thought but can't find your pen? Ready to doodle in your journal and there is no pencil to be found? Here is the cute and functional solution! I have not sewn the elastic in yet, so if you have a specific journal/book you would like it to fit, just let me know and I can make it extra long or extra short. If you don't specify, I will just make it the standard size (need to go measure so I can list specifics).

Birds and Trees:

Mrs. Darcy:

The Sophisticate:

Stone River:

Woodland Creatures 2:

Deer 1:

Deer 2:

Here is what they look like inside the cover.

Vintage Puppy Hanky-1
This is vintage through and through. The handkerchief is vintage (a pale mauve color with white edging) and the embroidery pattern that I used was also vintage.

Covered button thumbtacks- 1 point per set- only 1 set available
Gift ready...Each set comes on a cute gift tag with a piece of corkboard

Covered button barrettes- Green flower set - 1 point
Gift ready...comes on a card and with a little brown envelope

Covered button barrettes- Frogs- 1 point

T-shirt yarn - 4 for 1 point REDUCED!!!!!!  (you can also just get two for 1/2 point)
These average between 9 to 14 yards and are all made of one long continuous piece. I noticed the yellow ball didn't make its way into one of the other pictures so just let me know if you want it.

Blues (please indicate which one you want by column and row (i.e. R1, C2))

Pinks (please choose pink, maroon, or purple)

Earthy (please choose brown, gray, or beige). The two on each end are beige and are from matching t-shirts. If you are doing a large project and need a third one of the same beige color, I have one that I didn't post because it broke a couple of times when my husband was helping me make the yarn and he pulled too hard. I'll throw it in for whoever can use it.

Black and white and red all over. These are so similar, please just choose red, black or white.
Both of the black ones are really long because they came from XXL t-shirts...probably 13 or 15 yards.

Vintage Pinwheel quilt squares - 1 point for 2
You can have these like they are for 1 point or I can sew them into two pillows (without the stuffing) for one point each.

One for 1 point, Three for 2 points, Five for 3 points
These are made from 100% cotton flannel for ultra softness and absorbancy. The pantyliners have five layers of flannel and the maxi pads have six layers. They will all have snaps on the wings when you receive them (I can only hammer so many at once and keep good relations with my neighbors :)). The layout of the fabric may differ, but I do take great care to make sure that as much of the design shows as possible. If you want more than one of the same pad or pantyliner, just pm me because i have multiples of most of them.

Please choose by number: 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 8 , 9 , 10 , 11 , 12 , 13 , 14 , 15 , 16 , 17 , 18 , 19 , 20 , 21 , 22 , 23 , 24 , 25

In case the picture isn't clear the top left is gardening boots, second from left is a cherry print. The bottom right reminds me of like Bazooka gum cartoon strips.

It's hard to tell, but the frog fabric is kind of blue-green with a pale yellow liner. And the camo actually has dinosaurs on it. #17 and #19 are no longer available.

Cat and Mouse Wreath-1
Handmade but not by me. I picked it up at a yard sale. It's about the size of a large plate.

Chifunky Pincushion-1
Made from an Anthropologie egg cup and vintage fabric. Super cute and last one available!

Watering can pincushion -1

Arm band wallet-1
Made from waterproofed cotton so it won't absorb sweat. Velcro closure. One-size-fits-all adjustable strap. Lined with pink fabric. Perfect for times when you don't want to carry a purse.

2 Point Items

Pride and Prejudice Sash- 2


Wuthering Heights Sash- 2  ON TENTATIVE HOLD


Silver Heart necklace-2
This is a silver-plated heart with two swarkovski crystals on each side.

Vintage scrolled chair pincushion-2
I got this chair at a yard sale and added some padding and changed the cushion because the one on it was kind of grungy. It appears to be handmade from an old coke can. It is absolutely adorable and a wee bit delicate. The fabric on the cushion is also vintage.

So you can see the side scrollwork and get a perspective on size

3 Point Items

Wooden Vintage Purse- 3 points (can only ship to US)
I bought this about ten years ago at a flea market and have enjoyed it so much. But seeing as I haven't used it in several years and it is too awesome to go to waste, I thought I'd let it go to its next owner. I hate to do it but I have got to limit this heavy item to those with a US address only.

Here is the back. You can see where the two pieces are glued. But it has held together fine for many many years.


Seed beads- 3 for one point
The turquois and red are a bit bigger than seed beads and the cobalt blue are seed beads.
These are a great deal!!

Magnifying Glass-2
I got this at the Discover Channel Store a long time ago and never really used it. Click the thumbnails for additional views.



Trims- 2 points for lot
Most of these are over one yard and some are two yards. In this lot there are two unopened packages, including a daisy lace trim and a velvet trim embellished with beads. The leather cords are salvaged from various things so they are not as long.

Vintage Travel Stickers- 2 points per box
These are fantastic for all kinds of projects. Each box includes 20 large stickers. Choose: Wings of the World (vintage airline ads/logos) or Exotic Destinations (vintage hotel ads/logos). These are reproductions of actual old ads from around the world.

Wings of the World:

gavagai's swap shop is...



Custom orders

I can make custom made stenciled t-shirts (or other stenciled stuff). I would make the stencil myself as you wish it to be. PM me with what you have in mind and we'll discuss it. Here are a few examples of what I made before:

(   (   (   (   (

IKEA fabric at fabulous prices!  :)
All 100% cotton new fabric.

Gunvor. (whole piece showing, sorry about the folded corners in the picture) 59"x47". 1 point

Unknown name. Out of production. (whole piece showing) 59"x36". 1 point


Elsa. 59"x40". 1 point. Sorry about it being all wrinkly, but I can't iron it right now. If you want to I'll iron it before sending.


Katarina. Out of production. 59"x78". 2 points

Fredrika1. 59"x27". 1/2 point ON HOLD FOR TWIZTIDBLOOD

Fredrika2. 59" x 26". 1/2 point ON HOLD FOR TWIZTIDBLOOD

Burger ring, 2 points


Adjustable finger ring (silver plated) with a polymer clay hamburger with fries on a blue china plate.

Nestlaces (clickable thumbnails), 2 points each

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


Yellow egg nestlace. Yellow jade?


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

needle felting kit, 2 points

This includes:
1 foam pad to use as a base when felting (approximately 7"x7", will measure...)

1 felting needle with plastic cover/case and plastic "head" for better grip.

Instructions and tips!

about 40 grams/1.5 ounces of carded wool of your choice:
 -"regular" sheeps wool in many different colours
 - merino wool in many different colours (softer but might be slightly more difficult to felt, hard to say, a matter of personal taste really, why not try both!)
 - natural wool of different breeds, different colours, some curly, you can even have some camel fleece in there (some of the natural wool is much harder to felt, since it's not as processed, discuss with me and I would recommend somehow mixing coloured and natural).

Sample kit (but you will have a chance to customize it):

Below are just a few colour examples from my stash:

Deluxe needle felting kit, 3 points

Same as above, but for this kit you get an extra felting needle and may also choose either a wool handbag (felted by hand) or a flat wool piece (also felted by hand). You can choose from colors below. These are for you to decorate with needle felting. Handbag measures approximately 8 1/2" x 6" and has a zipper and lining. Manufacturer says that you can needle felt on the bag without removing the lining, but I noticed that there will then be tiny little marks in the lining from the felting needle (it is still fine to use it though!), so (if you are as picky as me  ;)) you might want to loosen the lining from the bag a bit so that you can insert a small foam pad (included) while needle felting. The lining can then easily be sewn back by hand. The felted wool piece is about 17" x 12".

temaris, 2 points

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

Roots and Wings Shop the Swap Shop

Welcome to my shop!  I'm a single mommy to a wonderful 25month old, and I mostly sew, and make things for baby/kids, but I try all kinds of other crafts too!  I live in Florida, and we have a dog.  I might be willing to do customs depending on how busy I am with other orders (links on my profile to all kinds of cool stuff I make) and I also do personal swaps!

My stuff:


In-stock in my store:

Please send me a message if you are interested in anything, and we will work out the points etc. 

Hat for Jasmine - this is a reversable sunhat, with the name 'Jasmine' embroidered on it.  (it was a custom order from someone who never paid!   )  Fits up to about 2-3yrs old, depending on head size.  2pts

Kimono style shirt.  Its black/white/red tiny flowers.  Ties closed.  Fits 12-18month ish.  2pts

Custom glass pendant  I'll use a photo/graphic or whatever that you send me (needs to be sized about 1" square, pendant is slightly smaller than 1").  Does not include a chain.  2pts

Bandana bibs - 1/2pt each.  These fit baby and toddler, some are only baby size tho, a few are doll ones!  They fasten w/elastic, great for drool.

Chamilion shirt - I think its 18month size.   1pt

girl blowing bubbles - 12months skorts 2pts

paint chip wallet - has pocket for money and slots for cards - 1pt

american apparel knock off dress/tunic top - inspired by this post    25" long, 16" across (laid out)- it streches.  Dk purple sorta color.  (sorry, no pic yet!)   1pt

Crayon roll up - holds 8 toddler crayons, or 16 regular ones.  Does not come with cryons b/c its super hot here and they will just melt everywhere.   1pt each
More colors are shown here:  The pink one and the orange one are gone, I might not have your first choice of colors avaible, so please have a back up color choice!

Fabric letters - Made to order.  These are sewn and stuffed, great for hanging on the wall, or just playing with, safe for babies too - fun way for kids to learn to spell their name too!    .5pts each, you can get as many as you want
Fabric choices are here:  (be sure to check the additional links to the left, please note that I may run out of your first choice in fabrics!)

Obanu carrier - sunflower print, lightly padded straps, 'scrunches' at the base for small babies/front facing carries.  Better for smaller babies/mommys.


Glass pendants. 
 1pt each

The one on the far right is gone

lots and lots of patterns - mostly womens clothes in sizes bigger than I can wear and more complicated than I care to make.  A few mens patterns, and a few are home decor like pillows or something.  Majority of them are simplicity patterns,  and are 'older' ones.  Some are used.  If you are interested, let me know and I'll get out the box to see what I have.    4 for 1pt
Pics of the ones I have are here -

!calluna’s Shop!

back from the dead and OPEN!!

I have a dog, and I'm fairly fuzzy, so pardon stray hairs...There shouldn't be as many now I'm in a cleaner house...I don’t smoke and there is no indoor smoking where I live.

For 2 points:

NSWF altered puzzle - The ABCs of Iniquity - 25 vice-tainted pieces! I can send it assembled and sealed, or broken into pieces with order/directions on the back. See individual pieces here:

Joker needlework - approx 4x7”

“Heirloom” handspun art yarn - off-white roving spun with old artificial pearls, doll shoes, miniature tarnished safety pins, little scraps of antique lace, metal beads, a wooden spool, and an aged, off-white lace trim. It's only about 7 yds.  :-[

For 1 point:

handmade mini-journals mystery pack - 4 (or maybe more?? that's part of the mystery! :D) different small softcover blank books, made from reclaimed/reused paper. Each a different size, each with different paper colors, and each with various imagery mixed in. At least 2 will be a sewn binding, and at least one will be a Japanese adhesive binding. I'll customize at least one just for you. All will be kinda silly and fun, not specimens of fine bookbinding prowess.
Quilt top - vintage, hence not made by me. Twin-sized, would be perfect for a bunch of iron-on images, appliques, stenciling, writing with fabric markers, or embroidering in the solid-color blocks, eh?

bodice floss bobbins - inspired by both how_german and Phizzychick.  :) You'll get 12 bobbins, each one unique, on a small binder ring. Some that may be included:

custom-made recon’d hardcover book from an old Readers Digest Condensed Book. The one shown is sold, but I have a variety of different cover colors and patterns, and I can do a variety of different bindings. Some of the cover designs I have:
They can be matched or mismatched if you prefer. The binding of the one shown is a Japanese album/flutterbook, which is an accordion binding with no open end. Here’s the closed book:
( here it is open: (

custom-made recon blank book - the ones without photos generally have plain covers, and all can have the covers altered if you like. Choose from these hard-cover titles:
 - "To The Wedding" (brown and black; good for a mini-scrapbook of wedding preparations, perhaps? or an envelope book for writing ideas and storing clippings of wedding inspirations?)
 - "Unto A Good Land" (blue-grey, has a small train going across the front)
- "Madam, Will You Talk?" (yellow)
 - "Rock & Roll Heaven" (red)
 - A green book with no writing on it, but stamps of 3 pears are embedded on front
PM me to discuss in advance!

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 metallic goldish 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.

Custom cross-stitch and/or embroidery - I have a lot of thread and a lot of small fabric pieces, so  I can do just about anything right now! As long as it isn’t too huge of a project, of course. Please contact me before claiming to verify that it’s something I can finish within a week.

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.

Journaling prompts in a box - 50+ prompts for journaling, or words for random ATC theme inspiration. I have collected various styles of prompts and printed them all on cardstock, and will stuff as many as will fit into an Altoids tin or little wooden box (your choice), which will be decorated however you like.

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

For 1/2 a point:

bright book with postcard pocket: This was an experiment; hence the bright wonky colors (wonky to me, maybe not wonky to you). Elastic loop on the inside for holding pens, and flip-up pocket for storing postcards or whatnot. Pages are a basic glue binding, with mixed paper and some random retro clipart.

Barbie pasties! Not pasties for Barbie, pasties for you (or other recipient) with Barbie on them. Technicolor images of vintage Barbies from a 1960s craft magazine, decoupaged on cardstock base, backed with vinyl and sealed to discourage deterioration. Off-white and yellow lace trim on the outer edge, with a bow made from the lace on the bottom of each. Clear iridescent sequins dotted around the outer surface. No tassels on the end and no special emphasis on the nipples...Though, if you have some Barbie shoes, it would be awesome if you made tassels with those! I can't find any, myself.

set of 5 molded crayons from scrap-crayons - choose mixed color ones like these, or I'll make you a set with the colors/variety of your choosing (craftydeb sent me pounds of crayons!)

- x-stitch Amelia Earhart quote made by Craftster kiden2, with fabric backing/border

- handmade recycled paper pack - choose any of these for half a point, or take all 3 for one point. Papers are approx. 8x5.5". Would be great for linoprints or something similar. Made by another craftster (they were handed down to me by the original recipient), and very nicely done. Each pack is bound with a variety of coordinated novelty/art yarns, most of which are handspun (some by me, some by anonymous others). The one in the foreground has a cover, and I can remove it if you want, or add a cover to the others if you want it to be a book. Choose pink, blue or greys.


1 point

2 blank 6x6 inch, stretched canvasses, still wrapped in original packaging. I can also throw in another that has already been painted on, if you want to gesso over it.

half a point

cut and marked quilt pieces for a double wedding ring pattern quilt. - A swap-meet find. Vintage fabric in various colors and prints, with the original templates in case you want to substitute some of the pieces with different fabric. I'm hand-washing all of it before sending.

approx 1 yd of Wonder Under with instructions. Several available.

vintage cake toppers - warning, includes 2 scary clowns! All the strange plastic goodies in the picture except the ruler.

Flat-Rate envelope stuffed with paper/ephemera - this is a more manageable amount to receive, methinks.  ;D vintage goodies, 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 when claiming.

Quarter of a point:

- 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. I got these second-hand but I'm pretty confident they were made to be altered. Large hole in the corner for binding them all with a bunch of chunky yarns!

sandwich baggie full of dried lavender buds (US only due to int'l shipping regulations)

old wooden spools of thread - I also have MANY wooden spools with no thread; if you would rather have some of those, please let me know.

Take some paper/ephemera for FREE with your purchase (please request specifically)– give me a theme and some likings and I’ll include some in the package

thank you for shopping!
