All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!

This is a finished item swap.  Post a "shop" of at least 5 items for everyone else in the swap to choose from.  All items should be finished, and hand crafted.  They do not necessarily need to be crafted by you, but credit the creator wherever possible for items you did not make.

To Sign Up: PM the organizer, raynbow, with a list of at least 5 items you will offer in your shop.  Once you receive approval via PM, you may post your shop.

What is a shop?
A shop is a post in this thread,listing the items that you have available to be claimed.  You don't have to have an actual online shop to participate in this swap.  As long as you can post a list of items, with pictures if at all possible, you have a swap shop!  You can also manage your shop pictures on your own picture hosting and just post links in your shop post.  It's up to you to keep your shop as up to date as possible by removing items that have been claimed and posting any new items you want to add.

- The majority of the posts in this thread should be shops.  That's what we all want to see, right?  So let's try and keep all the discussion over here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=159392.0
- When you claim an item, mail raynbow, xladyluckx, and the person you claim from.  Claims will be first come, first served.  The first person to send a PM to all three of the proper people will get the item.
- Because it's possible for more than one person to claim an item at the same time, wait until you see the recipients name in the send out post before you send.  The send out post will be the ultimate authority on who is getting which item.
- Rather than keeping track of the number of claims, like the other ongoing swaps, we will be using a point system for this swap.  Here are the most important things you need to know about your points:
- Every time someone claims an item from your shop, you get +1 point. (You cannot use your points until you have SENT the item that was claimed.)
- Every time you claim an item from someone else's shop you get -1 point.
- Once you have +4 points, your shop will be temporarily closed for business until you have less than 4 points.  Please edit your shop post to put 'CLOSED' in large bright letters to make it clear to everyone when your shop is closed.  There will also be a list near the top of the thread with all the closed shops.
- Once you have 0 points, you can't claim any items until you have at least 1 point.
- The organizers will keep a running point total at the top of the thread, but you should try and be aware of your own points too.  Feel free to keep track of your points in your shop post.
- When you receive an item, PM raynbow and xladyluckx and the person who sent it to you.
- Please use DC#s on your packages whenever possible.
- When someone claims an item on your list and is confirmed by an organizer, you are responsible for removing that item from your shop post.

(Please make the title of your PM the name of the swap)

Name of swap: Shop the Swap Round 1
Craftster username:

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

Please feel free to ask raynbow or xladyluckx if you have any questions!

Do I have to post pictures?
It's not required, but it's strongly encourage.  Good pictures will make people more likely to claim your items!

What size items should be in my shop?
As a guideline, think of 'medium' items.  But that's just a guide.  You are welcome to put 'small' items in your shop, but keep in mind that it may make people less likely to choose your items.  You are also welcome to keep 'large' items in your shop, but keep in  mind that you may be giving nicer items than you'll be getting from others.

Why does my shop close when I have 3 points?
When you have 3 points, it means at least 2 people have claimed items from you, but you haven't claimed any yet.  We want to make sure that no one gets shortchanged, so once several items have been claimed from your list, your shop will be 'closed' until you catch up on claiming some things for yourself.

Why don't I get my points until the person receives my item?
There are several reasons for this.  First of all, it's a good way for us to control how many claims you have going on at one time.  If you don't get your points until your items are received, you can't have more than a few people waiting for your packages at any one time.  It will also help protect our swap from anyone who might flake by not allowing them to make lots of claims if they aren't shipping their items.  And it'll encourage everyone to ship on time, or even faster, so that they can get their points!

Why don't I get my points until I have sent my item?
There are several reasons for this.  First of all, it's a good way for us to control how many claims you have going on at one time.  If you don't get your points until your items are sent, you can't have a bunch of packages waiting to be shipped and still be making claims.  It will also help protect our swap from anyone who might flake by not allowing them to make lots of claims if they aren't shipping their items.  And it'll encourage everyone to ship on time, or even faster, so that they can get their points!  We aren't waiting until items are received, because that will make it very difficult for international craftsters to participate in the swap.

Why do you keep changing the rules?
Since this is the first time we've run this swap, in this way, there are still lots of kinks in the system.  We're getting lots of feedback from you guys, and we want to make sure we listen to it.  Also, since we're hoping this will be an ongoing swap, we want to make sure that the rules we make don't make it harder for people to participate in later rounds.

What can I put in my shop post?  Can I put a wishlist?  Can I take requests?  Can I post embarassing pictures of my little brother?
The focus of your shop post, should be your shop! However, as long as you are keeping your shop the focus, and keeping it up to date, and keeping it stocked.... We don't care what you put in there! As long as you aren't breaking any rules of craftster, or any laws, go for it!

I want do do another swap, but the month isn't over, can you go ahead and give me my feedback?
In order to leave the swap early, you need to have at least as many points as you started with.  If you do, you can go ahead and 'close' your shop.  Then, once everything that had been previously claimed from you has been received, you can leave the swap and get your positive feedback.

My points/claims don't match what I think they should.  Is something wrong?
If it has been more than 24 hours since you made the claim.  Or if any of the organizers admit to having been drunk/sick/tired when we last updated the claims or points, go ahead and send us a PM.  Otherwise, give us about 24 hours to get caught up with claims.  If your claim is at least 24 hours old, and something seems wrong, feel free to send us a PM and ask.  If your claim is several days old and something seems wrong PLEASE send us a PM to make sure we received the claim!

I think I have 4 points but you only show me with 3, am I closed?  OR I think I have 3 points but you show me with 4, 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, feel free to help us out a little bit.  Please close your shop when you know you're at 4 points.  Also, feel free to re-open your shop when you know you are at 3 points.  And, if you've sent us a PM saying you sent items, feel free to spend the points, even if they still show as pending points on the list.

Up for grabs today, we have:

1 Green acrylic and polyester blend panta.  Made with chunky yarn, so it's very wide.  It's not too tight on my big fat head, so it should fit big heads fine.  If you have a smaller head, you might need to trim it up a little bit.  Also, since it's so wide, it'll be really warm during the winter I think.

One felted soap! The soap is glycerin base, so it's vegetarian.  It's got green tea in it, and an apple scent.  I think it smells sort of like a spicy apple chai!

One more felted soap.  Glycerin base.  Pearberry scented, mmmmm.

(If you would like felted soaps of a specific scent, please let me know.  Color is also somewhat chooseable, limited by what I have in my scrap pile!)

Sheepy soaps are gone for now, but I can make more if people want them.  Link to picture below.

Duck on the water soap.  Miniature rubber ducky floating on a yummy aqua olive oil soap, baby powder scented.  And so he won't get lonely on the trip, a light aqua, pearberry scented glycerin soap buddy!

everything is from a smoke free home, I have dogs but they are never in my room ( aswell they are greyhounds even people with asthma can handle them! ) Happy shopping!

NOTE: If you see anything you like but don't like the colour or whatever, pm me so we can figure out a custom. Requests can be considered to! Just let me know!

knitted bear, I've got in swap, but not my kinda thing. can be used as keychain or something like that too!

knitted items, you get them all, a pouch, a lipbalm holder, a bow brooch,  a necklace and a flower brooch. Done for me in a swap, but I don't really use it. Not my kinda things.

needle booklet in lime green and fushia pink with cute embroidery on it.
inside pic: http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n226/crafstermember/DSCF2236.jpg

pretty multicolour earrings.

pretty black and white pouch we a stencilled dog on sneaking away through the door. ( use your fantasy!) black back and white lining.

set of 4 fabric folded cupcoasters. approx 3.8" X 3.8"

cute black pink pouch made from felt, with an zipper and a pretty flower. lenght is 5" height is 4.2"

2 small felt mascottes. (so you get them both) approx 4" long, purple cat and pink bunny.

four small soaps, I received in swap, but I can't really use those. rose, fresh laundry, mango scented. Not sure about the green one though.

ok we have a skull/polkadot wallet, this should be a perfect item, but while sewing it didn't become it. it has a weird small pocket in the middles, nothing really can get in there, maybe a pen or something like it? haha just a wallet which is a bit out of shape. Has a zipper on the back for coin, close with a snap, can hold paper money and 4 cards. I am not sure about this item, but maybe someone can use it and has a great idea to put in the small pockets?
more: http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n226/crafstermember/DSCF2256.jpg

bronze earrings.

2 crochet stuffies, one limegreen cupcake critter and one sweet pink bunny head with an cord so you can hang it somewhere, you will receive both. another picture here: http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n226/crafstermember/DSCF2028.jpg

another credit/card business card holder in red heart fabric, white bias and button.

Brown fat bottom pleated clutch with amazing embroidered flower fabric and a pearly brown button snap
more pictures are here: http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n226/crafstermember/DSCF2045.jpg

hello kitty fabric keystrap. fabric picture: http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n226/crafstermember/DSCF2095.jpg

orange flowerly pouch with zipper.
more pictures; http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n226/crafstermember/DSCF2090.jpg

pretty roving earrinsg in blue made with merino roving on a golden wooden bead ( when the roving moves a little bit you see some golds) and nice silver findings and a facet bead. I truly love them, so I thought I better share them with you! (they aren't at all!)another picture: http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n226/crafstermember/DSCF2140.jpg

nice handknitted hat in different colours and there is are even some sparkles! made for me in the birds are beautiful swap (I don't remember who did it ) but it's isn't my colour. I know the sunny weather isn't good
for this, but maybe?

I have a huge XL white t-shirt and I am not really doing anything with it, it was in the "ebay box" ( yes I am making money on ebay, we have more than 6 boxes with clothes, holy fcuk! ) but I thought maybe some one liked it with a custom stencil on it? just make sure you pm me first with the stencil you like on it, so see if I'll be able to do it! Bad picture, sorry! But we all know how a white t-shirt looks like, right?

Newly Added:

Kanzashi flowers!  Two pairs, you get them both, the upper pair is approximately 1-1/2" in diameter, the lower pair is about 2" in diameter.  The colors are actually a bit lighter than the picture shows.

You want kitsch?  We got kitsch!  This is one of those frilly dolls that fits over the cone shaped air fresheners (like Renuzit)

Polymer clay crochet hooks, all protected for long life with polyurethane - from left to right (will get more hooks up soon):

From left to right, there is:
Size E, ladybugs
Size E, some fishy looking fella
Size F, flowers
Size F, some winged little garden critter
Size G, multi-flowers
Size G, green background flowers
Size H, daisies
Size H, roses
Size I, roses
Size I, some kind of funky flower
Size K, daisies
(not pictured, they're shy)
Size H, hearts
Size I, funky flowers

For those of you working on a craftster afghan, here are two 6" squares to add to the mix!

Daughter has given me a gallon size zip lock bag of what I am told is Alpaca roving that she received in a swap, and is apparently not using.  It ranges from a cream and pale gray to a dark... nearly black.  I had it weighed at the post office for weight, and it's 5.2 ounces WITH the plastic bag.  I can't spin, except in my desk chair (and get dizzy).  It's up for grabs. <--- sorry, it's claimed

Daughter has also passed over a monster messenger bag - it's grey furry with teeth, and when you open it, you see into his mouth.  The strap is white belt webbing with 2 rows of grommet/holes.  it's up for grabs. <--- headed for greener pastures

And now, brought to you by the letter "M"..... from the Roxycraft collection, the little Monkey!  He's just under 4" tall. <--- out of stock

Ok, we got our fat-bellied friend - and I apologize for the picture not being more clear - after 30 tries, I finally gave up! <--- has flown the coop to Avesthal's nest!

Victorian crocheted choker collar -  deep blue, with vintage style button in the center of the flower.  Closes with snaps, fits most.  sold, though I'll work up another one

Lap blanket or crib blanket.  This soft fleece blanket is knotted along the edges, the side shown is the frog prince, the reverse is solid red.  Size, not counting fringe, is 32" x 55" <--- going, going, gone!

This little fellow will keep you company while you craft, AND keep an 'ear' out for any strangers coming to take your finished objects!  He's approximately 3 inches tall. <--- out of stock

Slightly primative, totally baby safe dragon!  This little fellow is about 5-1/2" tall... everything is secured, and no eyes (so no danger) <-- off to be chewed out (or is that chewed on) by Ian

And they say the mind is the first thing to go.......  this little fella measures approximately 4 inches front to back? (can't find my measuring tape) <-- so if the asphalt queen adopts the fish, does he turn into a king?

CLOSED until May 1

Firstly, it should be known that my household is non-smoking, but I do have two furry cats. Please pm me if you need more detailed info about any of the items. 

Available items:

1. Silk/rayon velvet cloche-ish style hat, fits a 22.5" head circumference. From a Vogue pattern.

2.  owl and Cat Mark 2, from a Burda WOF magazine December 1972. Dark burgundy wool gabardine, cotton, polyfill. Not suitable for very small children. As before, they go as a pair.

3. Small sequined fish ornament/toy. Silk dupioni, sequins, and beads. I can add a hanging loop if desired.

4. Blue vinyl purse, 16 inches from bottom to top of handles, cotton lining. Manta ray reverse applique.

5. Bear-purse for a child, synthetic sherpa, cotton lining, zipper top closure. Will hold a few small items; from a Simplicity? pattern.

6. Snaily from fulled sweater sleeves; sweaters reclaimed from thrift stores. Wool, poly fiber stuffing. I have a quantity of sweater parts so there may be more of these in the offing later.

7. Batik cotton tea towel, 24"x38", vareigated purple with red lobsters (colors are darker than in photo):

The tea towels are a midweight cotton - use as a towel, or craft them into something else. They are dyed with Procion dyes and soy wax.

8. Blue felted bowl, wool. 7" diameter, 3" height.

9. Pillowcover for an 18-20" pillow form, Tan with applique sweater bits and buttons on the front, dark brown on the back. Invisible zipper closure.  Linen, sweaters, buttons.

10. Appliqued patches, done by someone else (I just scavenged them and have extra). The frogs have little mouths that open, and the bugs are stuffed and very 3d, especially the beetle. Backing is cotton interfaced with what appears to be wrapping paper. I would advise against washing them. You get all six (two frogs, a scorpion, a beetle, a lizard, and something that is probably a snake).

11. Simple cards with a tool/engineering theme, pick any six with plain envelopes. Jigsaw, files, screws, pliers, screwdriver, springs, electrode, thermometer, battery, winch, bunsen burner, faucet, pulley; from a children's picture dictionary.

12. Felt wallhanging, Colorful Colorado 2, roughly 14" square (I'm guessing on the size here). Wool, hemp, linen. For someone who likes neutrals!
(Aka You can have any color you want, as long as it is brown. The thing here is that when you cross the border into eastern colorado, there is a big sign saying "Welcome to Colorful Colorado", but you are surrounded for hundreds of miles by rolling hills of brown nothingness with no other colors in evidence, aside from the sky. Sometimes the sky is brown too.)

13. Chopstick purse, from a McCalls pattern. Irridescent silk dupioni lined with cotton, chopstick handles, plastic canvas, magnetic closure. Size 10" by 5". Due to the plastic canvas interfacing, this bag is very stiff. Color brighter in real life (purple/blue cross weave)

14. Fabric wallets (from the Wonder Wallet pattern), approx. 4.5" in width, velcro closure, coin and card pockets. I have two, pick one.

15. Felt, Blue Ridge 1, merino. Approx. 14 inches wide.

16. Felt, Jellie Jamboree, wool. Approx 2 feet long. Jellies are made from cotswold curls and are loosely felted to retain texture. Fun for kids (or jelly fanatics) claimed!

And....random freebies, combine with any of the above items. Can also go with packages that I have not yet shipped.

A. I bought a ball of string at the thrift store, and found when I got home that there was a mostly-finished tatted? crocheted? doily-thing inside. It is still connected to the ball of string, and there are safety pins around the edge. The outer edge of the doily is only partially complete. You get the doily and as much of the string as you think you will need (there is a lot). The string appears to be cotton. http://decapod.home.silentsong.net/sstmp2.jpg

Coming in May!
 Blue Ridge the sequel, Total Eclipse
chopstick purse in sushi,
felting needle rolls (if I can find those dang coffee stirrers),
cherry blossom sweater tote
more batik tea towels (potentially tree and anthill)
various clothes
