I received these amazing purple pages from TheBon a few days ago.  I love purple!  Smiley

Front:  The text says "Where so ever you go go with all your heart."


Bon, can you tell us about the picture of the girl?  Where did it come from?  She's so pretty.   Thanks so much for my gorgeous purple page!

I sold this brooch to pinkanddinky:
Antique Pink (brooch #2) 1/2 point.  Dusty rose flower with brown button accent, and olive green stitching.

And a red rose to asphaltqueen, Phizzychick, ptarmic wumpus and Purpleheather!
Red Rose -- wool blend.  1/2 point. Just in time for Valentine's Day!  A lovely dark red rose. 

(I have one more red rose!)

I just added some denim and crochet brooches!  These have button accents and are finished with blanket stitching.  So cute!  This one is my favorite:

I just added a whole bunch of collage supplies to my shop.  I added several packs of foreign language texts (packets of 30 pages, with 10+ languages in each!!!), some joss paper, and two grab bags of images.  Here's a peek:

I just posted a new crocheted flower to my shop -- a red rose for Valentine's Day!

I'm thinking of making some small project knitting/crochet bags -- drawstring bags with a loop inside to keep your yarn coming out straight and not tangled.  Would anyone be interested in that?

AsphaltQueen claimed another of my crocheted flowers -- this time a pink rose, and a custom red rose.  Thanks AQ!

Here's the pink one:

Pink Rose -- wool.  This rose is made from two shades of pink wool.  It's lighter in the center, just like nature's roses.

I sold these two crocheted flowers -- thanks Alteredmommy!  These flowers are so fun to make.

Dusty Zinnia -- wool.  This zinnia is a dusty rose color, with a yellow center.

Aubergine Zinnia -- wool/tencel blend.  This flower is a difficult-to-photograph brownish-purple tweed.  The color is very much like an eggplant.

I just opened my shop!  Since this is my first round, I'm a bit nervous about it.  Here's a peek at some of the items I listed:

39  Re: Shop the Swap - Round 11 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Katxena on: January 31, 2008 07:54:27 PM
Katxena's Shop

I am out of town from Feb 27 to March 3.  My shop will be closed until I return (and spend some points)

All items are from my smoke free home in the USA.  I have two cats who get into everything.  Please feel free to PM me with any questions you have. 


Handcrafted Items

Denim & Crochet Brooches

These look great on a coat or a purse, or for hanging on a bulletin board or dresser or anywhere else you need the sunny cheer of a flower. Features a crocheted wool flower, button accent, and denim backing with hand embroidered blanket stitch.  The back is nicely finished with felt and a pin back closure. Size approximately 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter.

(please include brooch # in your claim!!!)

Pale Yellow (brooch #3).  1/2 point. Pale yellow flower with purple button accent and red stitching.

Just red (brooch #4).  1/2 point. Dark red flower with a shell button and denim blue stitching. 

Crocheted Flowers

These flowers are hand crocheted by me.  They do not have pin backs -- I find that the best way to attach them is with a safety pin, which I'll leave it to you to provide.  Smiley

Purple flower -- acrylic.  1/2 point. A cheerful spring flower with a ceramic button in the center (the button is not shiny in real life, that's glare).

When selecting a half point item, please choose two so point totals remain in whole numbers.

Quilted Potholders 2 points for the pair
A pair of matching teddy bear potholders.  These are backed with denim fabric and feature an inner layer of heat resistant fabric and nice thick batting.  They are about 9x9 inches (23x23 cm)

Teddy Potholders:

Handknit washcloths 2 points each
These washcloths are handknit by me of 100% cotton yarn.  They feature a crocheted edge helps them retain their shape and last longer.  I use them to wash my face, because the cotton is just rough enough to exfoliate without scratching (I have extremely sensitive skin).  Other people use them as dishcloths or dustcloths. They are great no matter what you use them for.  They are approximately 9x9.5 inches (roughly 23x24 cm).

Washcloth #1: Pink and Orange


I'm offering several packs of collage supplies.  These are all from my personal stash.  I collected everything you see here for use in my own mixed media collage work, but I am simply running out of room, so I thought I'd share!

Foreign Language Pages -- with Spanish (1 point)
Foreign Language Pages -- without Spanish (1 point)

This is an incredible assortment of 30 pages from non-English books.  Each pack includes a grab-bag assortment of about 10 or 12 languages, including Russian, French, several Asian languages, Hungarian, and more.  Since many people can get Spanish language books, I'm offering one pack with Spanish and one without Spanish.  There are no newspapers or magazines in this assortment.  I have one of each (with Spanish and without Spanish) to offer at this time.  The picture below is representative of the pages you'll receive:

Oh wow HippieKender, this is very clear.  I'm off to try it right now!!!

Edited to add: It worked!  This isn't front and back, but I put these two ATCs together next to each other.  Thanks so much for your help.
