Selkie - non-smoking, 3 cat home...

Completely lame, but here is the link to my round 8 shop...

Between a week's worth of migraines, can you say stress, and all the other fun stuff in my life, I have nothing new to add at this point and not enough energy to create a new shop...

My apologies...

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

All Things PinkAndDinky


I share my smoke-free home with two kitties but I mostly keep my craft stuff out of their reach.

One point items

Fancypants Ponytail Holder - (1)
The two metal beads on this are very good quality heavy beads.

Beaded Ponytail Holders- 1 point for both
These are more decorative and unless you have very thick hair they probably need to be worn over a hair elastic.

Nashville Craft Mafia bag (1)

Pink Tooth Box (1)
Leave a tooth for the tooth fairy in this cute box or use it as a place to keep your kid's baby teeth

Coordinating interior

Pajama/Comfy Pants (1)
These are khaki colored with pink flowers. The waist is 30 inches when it is not stretched at all and can stretch up to 41 inches. The inseam is 26 inches. They are about a size 8/10 and made to fit loosely.

Woven placemats with leaves. The placemats are from Target and I added the felt embroidered leaves. Set of 4 placemats plus leaf potholder: Reduced to 1 point

Flower card wallet (1)
This is just the right size for business cards, gift cards, or credit cards. I used interfacing so it is sturdy.


Passport Cover with travel motif (1)
This fits a US passport
This one has been taken off the market but I can easily make more of these. PM me if interested.


Pink Arm Band Wallet (1)
This is cotton that is coated with something slick like vinyl. Lined with pink cotton. Great stocking stuffer!

Blue Arm Band Wallet (1)
This can hold money, keys, ipod, etc. while you exercise or don't want to carry a purse. It fastens with velcro and is adjustable to fit the upper arm of most adults. Lined with white cotton.
Great stocking stuffer!

Fire Fairy Earrings (1)- These are 2 inches long, much smaller than they look in the picture.
They are very well made and their arms are bendable. I received them in another swap but they were not made by my swap partner so I'm not sure who made them.

The following are just a very small sampling of the original photography prints I have available. Please look at my website to see what else I have available. I am offering one 8x10 print for 1 point or 2 5x7 prints for 1 point. Any of the color pictures on my site can also be made into lovely black and white images. I also have a lot of pictures that are not posted here or on my website so please let me know if you are looking for something particular. Thanks!


Carnival Nights


Melting Pot



Big Sky




Two Point Items

Sundress (2)
I started this and my mom finished it this summer. I never wore it though because I decided it isn't me, but I still think it is quite cute. The top is 30 inches around the bust but is very stretchy. The length is 34 inches, excluding straps. It is about a size 8 but I think a 6 or a 10 could probably wear it too.

Ceramic Bowl (2)
Unfortunately due to the cost of international shipping, I must limit this item to those with an address in the US. Sorry for the inconvenience. This is handthrown with beautiful earthy green/brown luster glaze.

Three point items

None at this time

Half point items. Get one free half-point item with every point spent for a limited time only (Tuesday around midnight to be exact)

"I See You Pee" handtowell (.5)
Make your guests laugh (or freak them out) when they use your restroom  Wink

One large and two small potholders (.5)

Butterflies and Flowers Gift Tags (.5) - two sets available
All are on heavy cardstock and the butterflies are wooden. The backs of the flower tags are pink.

Wood bead earrings (.5)

Necklaces and Bead Strands- everything pictured for .5 point

Seed bead necklaces- set of 3 (.5)

Vintage Christmas Ephemera (.5)
Each piece is cut from vintage Christmas wrapping paper that I recently found. Some is from the 1950's and some from the 60's. There are at least 40 pieces cut from 12 different papers so this is really the jackpot for someone who likes vintage Christmas motifs.

Close up of a couple of the pieces

Supply Annex  Supply Annex  Supply Annex

Big phat pile of mardi gras beads (1)
That green one around the edges is reeeeeeeaaaalllllllllly long.

Set of pouches and bags (1)

Great for a child's stocking

*A project bag like the GoKnit pouch, in a medium or small size--http://www.yarniverse.com/browse.cfm/4,1138.htm
I like burgundy, pinks, blacks/white, teals etc etc.  Pretty much anything but vintagy looking fabrics (sorry!), yellow/orange, or flowers. 

*Yarn, yarn, yarn.  Esp fingering weight or enough laceweight to make a shawl.  Saturated colours, jeweltones, pink/brown/white combos, teal/brown combos, or solids.  Prefer no orange/yellow.  Natural fibers or blends, pls.  My stash runneth over with acrylics right now.  I'd like some sockweight superwash to try making socks, varigated or solid.

*Nifty sterling silver componets for beading, like spacers, charms etc

*Shorties --I don't know if this qualifies as a supply, but I suppose it does.  12" circular needles.  I'm desperate for this, so while I would be prefer metal/wood, I would gladly buy plastic as well

*Sublime stitching patterns--I haven't tried embroidery and would like to!  I especially like the asian ones (china town, sushi bar etc), bon voyage, gnomes/fairies, craftopedia, or the kurt hasley ones....

*Interweave Knits magazines from Summer 2006

*Felted Clogs/slippers in size 7-8

*Mother of pearl buttons in unique shapes/patterns/designs.  Or other buttons made of shell in different shapes etc.

*Interesting/different vintage knitting accessories.  I have a vintage Evenknit knitting ring and it's groooovy!

*Different sterling silver jewelery findings.  Like fancy headpins, spacers, charms, clasps etc.

*A Blythe. Har har har.  Like that's going to happen.  Wink  Cheesy

*Faceted gemstone beads or swarovski crystals.  Or irregularly shaped (or uniquely)and/or chunky gemstone beads.

*Japanese beading books and/or magazines

*Little teeny polymer food charms for stitchmarkers for sock knitting.  So smaller  than dime size would be great!  I like sweets (ie cakes, cupcakes, icecreams, cookies, chocolates etc), fortune cookies, chinese food takeout boxes, japanese lanters (anything asian, but sushi, really)

My Swap Shop14!

As you can probably tell from my avatar, there's a beagle in my house (that often comes in my crafting room with me). We are, however, a non-smoking household.

Perfect for a kid or teenager's room or for that adult Star Wars fan, whether they're rooting for Yoda or Darth Vader. One side of this 16"x16" pillow has Yoda and the other stars Darth Vader. It's stuffed with a polyester fiberfill that is hypoallergenic and machine washable.

Gorgeous, handmade bracelet/necklace of hematite stones. Some believe the hematite stones have healing powers and can provide medical benefits to wearers. This piece has magnetic stones so no clasp is needed. Wear in any number of styles - great for the holiday season! There are two of these available.

Made with iron-on letters (so make sure you wash inside-out and dry on low heat), this baseball-style t-shirt was inspired by one I saw here elsewhere on Craftster. Made with a new Fruit of the Loom t-shirt, approximately 36" chest.

Made of 100% cotton, this pillow is stuffed with a polyester fiberfill that is hypoallergenic and machine washable. If you'd like a set, please claim two of these for a total of two points and I'll make you another one with the same fabric.

8"x10" print of a photo taken by me. Professionally printed on fujifilm archive quality paper.

A handknit cell phone holder (or any other small electronic device or stuff) with a super-cute paw print button! Normally I'd charge 2 points for something like this, but this was my first time with the pattern and there's a couple small mistakes. (Button hole is a little off-center and the top edge has an extra knit row one side.) I don't think they're things people would necessarily notice, but I know the imperfections are there, so the price is reduced. This holder is great for making it easier to find your phone in your purse or bag, or just use it for some added padding for your phone.  Pocket dimensions are roughly 3"x4" and these photos were taken with my verizon LG phone inside the pocket. The colors showing on my screen are darker than in real life - the yarn is a very nice mid-gray tone with flecks of darker grey and white.

Handknit by me with a wool/cotton/polymind blend yarn. A cheery and colorful scarf, perfect for treating the winter blahs!

Handknit by me using two strands of yarn - one of a super-soft acrylic/nylon yarn and one of sari yarn. Supersoft scarf with some great colors! The second pic is a close-up of the sari yarn fringe - it's so vibrant! (*note: due to the nature of sari yarn, there may be some slight "shedding" of this scarf)

Embroidered felt "project bag", perfect for a small yarn project or to take your current craft project traveling with you. Snap closure, no lining. Finished size is approximately 8"x11".

This is a handmade "necklace" for your small dog, as modeled by my beagle, Snort. Unstretched, it's about 7" in diameter. It is pretty tight on my 26 pound beagle, not-quite-choking-but-not-quite-comfortable, which is why we're selling it (and she's oh-so-happy to see it gone). Very sparkly and festive, it's a great way to adorn your dog for the holidays and would be terrific for family holiday photos!

Handpainted (but not by me) mushroom plaque with a cool old-school look.

I received these in other swaps and while they're adorable, I don't have a use for them. The coffee cup cozies are felt-backing with cotton toppers and the mini-pouch has a velcro closure.

Select any 3 of the notecards listed below for just 0.5 point! Mix and match to your hearts content! All cards come with coordinating envelopes for mailing. (Please be as specific as you wish to be for example, if you want a specific ice cream card, let me know, otherwise Ill just pick for you!)

GERMAN BIRDIES (3 identical cards available)




Colors are a little dark in the photo, the darkest is a dark navy blue.


ZETTI FISHMAN NOTECARDS - (7 cards available)
The picture colors are slightly off on my computer - there are dark purple, light purple, red and blue, and the rhinestone blends with the card better in person.

You get 10 uber-cute swap notes (Ill randomly select 10 for you from the 20 pictured below), perfect for a quick note to your swap partner (or swap the shop purchaser). All are 4"x5" with blank backs for your personal message.

This yarn ball is 200 yards of hot pink eyelash yarn. Also included is a learn to knit DVD. (I've never opened the box, so I can't vouch for the quality of the DVD.) Looks like it'd be great for a teenager or adult, though!

Straight from Ikea, it's a brand new mold for the ever-popular puzzle soaps (or, as Ikea intended it, for making puzzle ice cubes). These are great to use with the no-fuss, no-muss heat-and-pour soaps - awesome craft for the kids' holiday break! 3 are available for purchase at 1 point each. Only 1 left!

An 8"x8" post-bound memory book with 20 pre-designed slip in pages that are acid & lignin free. Great for the scrapbooker short on time or for someone just getting started! A variety of pre-designed inserts are included, almost all are in the blue/greg/silver color family and most have snowflakes on them. (If you want pics of additional pages, just let me know.) Dust covers are still on each of these - great for yourself or a gift! Two of these are available at two points each.

So I've got a guilty, little stash of 25 knitting/crocheting magazines/pattern books and 5 misc. crafts books. I know that I simply won't get around to most of these and I feel guilty letting all this crafty goodness sit in the closet - so it's time to de-stash!

I couldn't figure out the best way to sell these, so I've made multiple groups, each for varying points. I can't in good faith put pics of all 30 up here, but I've put a few to whet your taste.

If you would like to see pics of individual patterns, etc., you can see them in a gallery set-up at http://www1.snapfish.com/thumbnailshare/AlbumID=176597941/a=17001458_17001458/t_=17001458
