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:
Email address:
Real name and mailing address:
What are five items you can post in your shop:

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!
[url width=360 height=188]http://decapod.home.silentsong.net/sswap34.jpg[/url]

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

love2experiment's little swap shop: Closed! Sad

All items are handcrafted by me.  I don't smoke, but I have a mini schnauzer who likes to sleep in my craftroom, so if you have pet allergies, you might wanna take that into consideration!  To find out more about the items and/or see more pictures of the items, click on the pictures!  

TWO SETS OF CHARMS (yes, you get both sets!):

Ok, my shop is now open!

1. Skull tote bag. With bow. I did make a small mistake on this bag, nothing major- but as a result of my stupid mistake it hangs a bit funny. You can't tell when you're wearing it though.

2. Prawn coloured crocheted scarf. Made by a friend- I have too many scarves!

3. Green felt pouch:

4. Charms. Most are made by LaughingLark and are totally gorgeous. She sent me lots of them in the OWS19, and I love them all- but these were the ones I couldn't use. I thought I might as well offer them on here! Also some polymer clay beads and marbles! Sold to the lovely Raynbow!

5. Charm bracelet. Measures about 6.5 inches. Very pretty!

6. Crochet flowers- one of each colour shown. Sold to the lovely Raynbow!

Hope you like!  Smiley

Sorry.  I don't have a question about the swap...just about your mary jane slippers.  Did you follow a pattern?  I have to be in a wedding in May and can't find any shoes that don't kill my feet that can be dyed.  I need flats but can't find any anywhere!  I think I could crochet some of these with a cotton and that would be awesome!

Please let me know.  I still need shoes to be able alter the dress!! 

Thank You!!!!

CLOSED. Will Re-Open in May.

Welcome to ...

First Come, First Served

On offer:

Patterned, Silky/Chiffon-y Head Scarves/Sashes. Take your choice of two. I got bangs just so I could wear these. Serged edges, sizes vary slightly, but for the most part each is 60 inches long and 6 inches wide. #1 and #4 SOLD OUT! #2, #3 and #5 still available:

Two Onesies for the Price of One (1 Point): This poodle is the very first thing I ever embroidered (oh, about two years ago). I made it for a friend's baby boy, only to be told that it was "too girlie." Oh well, his loss is your gain. Never worn, it has short sleeves and will fit a 3 to 6 month old. Speaking of girls ... that girl is poison. Here's another short-sleeved onesie. This one will fit a 6 to 9 month old. The word is done in green metallic thread:

You're on your own Tuesday through Friday, but come Saturday your kitchen can be chipper for the next three days with this set of embroidered dish/tea/kitchen towels:

Set of eight glass marble magnets. Not this set, but one just like it. Images are Wonder Woman, Vintage Barbie, Lucky Cat, Black Cat, Hello Kitty, Gerber Daisy, Mod Target and Cherries:

"What's this?" you say. An 8-inch square of sock monkey oilcloth with some stitching. It's cute fabric and all, but what does it do? Hey, wait, there's magnets in the corners. Snap them together and you suddenly have a little bowl for, you know, whatever. Each is backed with red microsuede and the magnets work both ways, so you get two bowls in one. Currently, these two are the only ones in existence, but if there's a market I can make some more. One per claim (trying to sew with magnets can be a bit tricky) Rockmygypsysoul has snatched the Warhol one. The other will is still available:

Non-smoking home, but we do have a beagle that somehow manages to get hairs into pretty much everything. I try my best to keep craft items hair-free, but I can't guarantee I catch 'em all!

Set of 2 Boobies Soaps

Set of 3 Red Gnome Notecards (Embossed) - Three sets available

Framed Red Gnome with 'Shrooms - Embossed Gnome with Painted Brads (frame can be tabletop or hung)  *crappy pics, but it's white and red*

One 8x10 print of any TWO of the following photos (all taken by me) - NOTE: I've decided my preferred method of printing and shipping these is via snapfish.com. I'll order and pay for the prints and just have it shipped to you. The prints will be packaged better and they will probably arrive sooner than my current method. If you'd prefer that I have them printed by a local printer and mail them myself, just let me know when you claim - it's not a problem at all!  Grin

Shop is CLOSED for the rest of the month

Okay!!  I do have a kitten and a puppy and while I try to keep things from them, they get it EVERYTHING lol.  however, this is a nonsmoking home and my fiancee has serious allergies, so we try to keep things super clean!!

1. cherry blossom picture frame!! its a 4x6 teal colored picture frame with pink cherry blossoms on it.  This item has been claimed, but I can easily make another like it, in whatever colors you choose!

2.  Button bouquets.  Ive sold a couple and can easily make more!!

3.  a purple glass vase with melted beads in pink, red and white coming up from the bottom...imagine stalagmites (or is it stalactites that grow from the bottom?!) coming up the bottom of this square glass dark purple IKEA vase

4.  one record bowl...33 size...dont recall what the record actually is but by all means if you care, I can look!  Wink  if you would like a second one, i can easily add one to it (no extra points! lol)...i tend to keep these around to keep different things (like buttons, sewing notions, etc) in...

5.  set of 4 ribbon bracelets...two in black and white ribbon, two in brown, green, pink (and one with blue as well), ribbon

6.  button wreaths!!  this has not yet been made, although I made one for a personal swap that had a particular color scheme and it turned out like...

these can be custom made...but i have to have a minimum of four colors for a scheme...sorry!!  (i hate to deplete my button stash of any one or two colors completely!!)

7. i have a three opening wooden picture frame i will paint with any color/particular design youd like!!  claimed!!

8.  and the skull mirror!  okay, yes, this has been claimed but also, its very easy for me to make another, so if youd like it, just ask!!  Cheesy

9.  ALSO, i have very simple pink and AB crystal swarovski crystal earrings on sterling silver hooks...theyre pretty , but very simple.  along with this item, you would also receive the Springtime Hearts anklet as offered by serialcrafter in SSS8...its adorable and I asked for it, but I have given in to the fiancee and promised not to wear sandals this summer (Im deathly allergic to fire ants), so no real need for an anklet.  i actually have pics of these items but they were taken separately and arent very clear (moms camera has no macro mode), so i dont want to use that much space here...if you want to see them, shoot me a pm and Ill email the pics!!

sorry the pics are so huge-i used my moms camera and just went to motophoto and saved them on a disc...i HATE not being able to use my photo program...!!  Roll Eyes

Welcome! All items come from a smoke free environment, I have two cats however.

Octopus pendant or keyring/bag charm. He has a loop at the top of his head which has a crochet chain through it. That can be removed and a keyring attached instead. Height to top of loop approx 2 1/2 inches, height of chain 14 inches. Cotton yarn with glass beads on legs and unidentified beads for eyes.

Crochet Marble Pendant. Clear glass marble enclosed in crocheted turquoise embroidery thread. Total length 12 inches.

Two Crocheted Pink Roses. Can be sewn onto brooch backs or hair elastics, let me know what you want. Acrylic yarn.

Photographs of sold items are in the gallery.
Brown Baby Monkey, soft and a bit fuzzy. About 5" long. Mixed wool & acrylic yarn, safety eyes. Claimed by GatorWrangler.

Blue Fuzzy Sprite. Height 3 inches, acrylic yarn, safety eyes. Sold to Asphalt Queen.

Travelling Rabbit. Height approx 4 inches, acrylic yarn. Sold to Asphalt Queen.

Green Girly Monkey, with flower and necklace. 6 inches tall, acrylic yarn & safety eyes. Sold to La_Chrystelle

Little Blue Monkey. 4 inches tall, acrylic yarn. Sold to Asphalt Queen

Green Fuzzy Moss Sprite. More green than it looks in this photo. 5" tall, acrylic yarn, safety eyes. Sold to Lunanne.

Little Gnome. He's just over 4" tall and it was really hard to get a good shot of him. He stands up nicely, but I can put a hanging loop on him or turn him into a keyring if you like. Acrylic yarn. Sold to javede, and another one to xladyluck.

In case anyone's interested, these are the things I'd buy: aprons, a small craft one with lots of pockets and a large plain one; a needle book or whatever to put my sewing needles in; a place to keep my pins, preferably with a pin cushion attached; jewelry, not earrings, and without too much metal, but almost anything else, particularly pendants. Themewise I like Sci-fi , fantasy and nature.

 The Laughing Lark is closed until May.

Earring set #1
Stars and flowers! I love to do beadwork on wire, and I do this type of work pretty quickly, so I thought five small pair of these would be a good amount to trade! Keep all five for yourself, or share with your friends!

Earring set#2 Frolicsome summertime earrings! You get all five!

More charms!

Colorful mixed florals with a few skulls!  Cheesy

Multicolor charm mix#2

 Purple and yellow mix! These are either violets or violas, or maybe orchids! I can't decide!  Cheesy There are 14 in this set.

Yellow glass skullyflowers and pansies.
Yep, more skullyflowers, but these are made with yellow glass beads, and are quite a bit heavier that the wooden ones.  I would not recommend them for earrings, but they'd be great for pendants, zipper pulls, keyrings, you name it! They have a retro feel to them! Also, there are a few glass bead pansies in this mix. 14 charms in all.

This yellow and gold beaded butterfly necklace. Made with glass beads and tiny chips of Baltic amber. Fun!

Ice cream cone charms! These are made with a brown jasper stone, most likely picture jasper. It has less lines in it than some picture jasper I have seen though, making it ideal for ice cream cones! The pealrs are glass-based. A nice set of eight charms on jump rings. Make into earrings, stitch markers, a charm bracelet---whatever your heart desires.  Smiley

This group of 25 blue charms. They do not come with jump rings, but they are made on standard eyepins, and you can open the loops for attaching them to whatever! The center beads are glass, and the pearly beads are acrylic:

These pink charms. They are all made with acrylic beads. I wired a small pink flower onto the front of the pink hearts. I added jump rings to the hearts, and the rest of the charms are made on standard eyepins that you can open up for attaching to whatever. I threw in a couple of ice cream charms; please note that they have slightly different colored "toppings".  Smiley

Sold out stock below! Thank you!

Sold out!!!
I have two sets of these skullyflower charms!There are eighteen charms in a set, six orange, six green, and six yellow flowers. The two sets are very similar, but not identical. There are nine matched pairs in each set, in case you want to use them to make earrings. The flowers are made with wooden beads---very lightweight! Each charm comes with a jumpring, so you can open the jumpring and attach them to whatever you like.

Each set= 1 claim.

One set sold to xladyluckx!    Second set claimed by Atsuko! A third set  was made for gatsbygirl!  Set four sold to Raynbow! Set five belongs to Dulcinea!
Wink Cheesy

 This group of black beaded charms, with jumprings attached. All you see here! The center beads are mostly glass, and the shiny outer beads are pearly acrylic. The colorful beads are wood. Lots to work with here for your crafts! Sold to Gavagai! Thank you!  Smiley
  These pearl, gray, black and red charms, with a few skully charms in the mix! Most of the bigger beads are glass, and the small beads surrounding them are acrylic. All are made on eyepins, which you can open for attaching them to your crafts, if you like.Sold to the lovely, and speedy, Gavagai!  Wink Cheesy

This set of black, red, white and clear charms, with a few skullys! Made on eyepins. The center beads are glass, and the smaller, surrounding beads are acrylic. Skullys are also acrylic.
Sold! To the lightning-fast Raynbow!! Thank you! Cheesy

This group of springy, peach-colored charms! The center beads are glass, and the small pearls are acrylic. The flowers are made from glass rondelles.
Gone! I am working on more charms with flowers in them, though. Watch for them!

This set of pink and aqua pearly charms with glass bead flowers. The flowers come with jumprings, the rest are made on eyepins:
Sold to la_chrystelle! Thank you!

Here, we have an oddball mixture! A few pearly charms in shades of blue, a few gray pearly charms with skulls, a few plum-purple colored glass flowers with skulls.  All of these can be yours!  Cheesy Cheesy Sold!

This set of pink and mauve pearly charms with pink glass bead flowers! The flowers come with a jump ring attached, and the rest are made on standard eyepins that can be opened with a pliers, if you need to. All you see here!Sold!

 This set of glass garden goodies charms!Sold to the lovely Avesthel! Thank you!

This set of 20 colorful beaded charms. The inner beads are glass, and the surrounding beads are acrylic with an aurora borealis finish on them. All are made on eyepins that you can open with a pliers, if you need to, to attach them to whatever. Great for pendants, zipper pulls, purse charms, or whatever.
Sold to Raynbow! Thanks! I'll try to get more of these made this weekend!  Smiley

This multicolor flower mix. A little of everything! Set of 14.Sold to Angry Angel! Thank you! Smiley



Since I have had several people ask me---yes! It is totally okay with me if you use the charms I've put up for swap here to make your own crafts to swap, sell on Etsy, or wherever. I'd love to see what you make with them, if you can post pics or send me a link. Wink

Thank you for looking at my shop! Smiley

Craftydeb's Shop is

Too Late!  I'll leave up the pic for a little bit....
Pair of cotton sunflower hotpads/potholders.
6 1/2" round
Crocheted with 2 strands at once so it is nice and thick.

Too Late!  I'll leave up the pic for a little bit....
Pair of cotton seedless apple potholders - these are pretty large.
8" across.
Crocheted with two strands so it is nice and thick.

Both sets claimed!

Pair of black ladies Isotoner gloves with Fun Fur knitted cuffs.
One size only according to the tag.
Two sets are available so if you want two pairs and have two points, have at it!

pair of black Isotoner ladies gloves (can't send just one glove you know!) with knit boa yarn cuffs.

Too Late!  This little piggie is going to a new home!
Crocheted stuffie - Acryllic stuffed piggie - pink with black hooves.
Rather vintage Annie's Attic pattern if I remember right...
Approximately 8" tall but he's sitting.

Crocheted stuffie - Brown teddy bear - Paton's pattern. 
9" tall

Crocheted Frog Pouch. pouch part is approximately 5x6.  This is a vintage Annie's Attic pattern which oddly enough is nearly identical if you ask me to the Crochet Me one that was posted a few months back. Coincidence?  I think not.
Two pouches are available so if you want two pairs and have two points, have at it!

Crocheted Sunflower girl's purse Short handle - approximately 6" circle.  Think fun spring!  Durable kid friendly acryllic yarn.

Coming Soon....
more crocheted potholders - old fashioned styled, rectangle and also some square ones.
Kitchen towel holders that you can use your own towels with!  One of my favorites - I have one in my kitchen right now!
Knitted dishcloths in stockinette stitch with crocheted edging

xmas ornaments - yeah, I am out of season, but hey, I have them so I will put them out there.

Crocheted stars with fun tinsel holiday yarn.

Little white crocheted dogs - they are no bigger than 2" long.  Soooo cute!

Maybe some machine embroidered by me lace things - I love making the lace stuff so I can't help it.  I MUST make more.  Ornaments, angels, critters, jewelry pendants, etc... Just hang them whereever you want to spruce up a spot!

But all of that will have to wait a bit as I need to get some actual work done here - both for design requests and removing all the flipping sod in the yard so I can have nice weed free flower beds!  That will be done by Saturday thankfully!!!

I am not sure what else I will uncover... I still have boxes to locate.  The end of May I am driving to NJ and PA to visit friends and family and I will be retrieving the last of my boxes of finished objects.

Orang Merajut Design: Shop closed!

First of I have to admit that I smoke! I do wash every one of the items right after I finish them and they are stored in my brothers smoke free room. I haven't heard anyone of my past swap partners complain, but thought I might warn you anyway*

Fabric brooches, chose one:

They are my newest obsession, but a girl only needs so many yoyo-brooches  Cheesy Please note that my handsewing still needs to be perfected! It's all secure, but the stitches are not perfect as you can see here.

knit hat made out of handdyed wool:

I made this one for myself awhile ago, but not even once wore it!

Calorimetry, handdyed and very soft lambs wool:

crocheted purse:

Approx. 8.5 inches wide and high. It is not lined cause as I said above my handsewing skills somewhat lack a bit. But it could be used as it is or I will send some coordinate fabric with it or I will *try* sewing the lining too if it gets claimed(I have to learn it anyway someday so why not now  Cheesy)

Star wars pillow covers. These will fit 16inch pillows. They are made out of a vintage bed sheet so there might be some minor irregularities.
Chose two: The one on the left has some wrinkles on the top.

This is how the back looks, though the fabric really is black, crappy photo...

I dyed some more roving! Note that these are only approx. 80g each instead of the one I offered before that was 100g, chose oneleft one claimed:https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/8824broving2b.JPG one more pic to show color changes better

needle rolls for DPNS, they are approx. 17inches long and 9inches high, chose one:
1. gnomes roll
claimed by kitschkween
2. playing card roll
claimed by Dulcinea

wrist warmers:claimed by xladyluckx

handdyed roving: claimed already

*Honestly, if you received something in a swap from me and it smelled, please tell me! It may convince me to quit smoking or atleast only smoke on the balcony Wink
