Basics: I own a smoke-free home near Chicago, IL (USA).  I had a cat for 18.5 years, but she died almost two years ago.  I do, however, still occasionally find caches of cat fur from time to time...

[click on the pictures to see the REALLY HUGE version...]

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.  I made a bunch of these for a friend's store, but never get down there anymore, so am offering these to my craftster friends instead!!  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)

Mob Shot

Black Matte (have 4 pair, 3 with green pearl heads, 1 with wooden heads)

Dark Green Matte (have 1 pair available)

Medium Blue Luster (have 1 pair available)

Transparent Red (have 2 pair available)

Yellow Iris (have 1 pair available -- these are "princess" with little silver butterflies on their magic wands)

Cobalt Matte (1 pair available)

Purple/Aqua (1 pair available)

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 4 year old daughter.  Toward that end, 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:

Colors: (I make multiples of most colors, and can make more if your favorite is gone before you get the claim in...but that could take a while) Here is my current inventory....I will try to keep it fairly up to date.  (I do keep the copy on my laptop pretty accurate, I just have to remember to copy it to the server occasionally)

Dark Pink (last one!):
Magenta (color is more purple than my screen is showing) (last one!):
Dark Brown (3 available):
Black (1 left):
Red (2 available):
Variegated Yellow (1 available):
Light Yellow (3 available):
Gold (3 available):

I also have materials for: light purple, milk-chocolate (brown), a dark aqua-blue, orange, and a bizarre orangey-pinky color that defies my abilities to name it.  Most will take me a week (or longer) to get a purse finished.

[b]NEW![/b] Birdie Painting! 2 Points.SOLD! Thank you mimiw!

This is a new painting I've just done. It's an 8 1/2" X 11" stretched canvas. It's a mixed media piece (the clouds are actually pages from a Finnish book and the bird's body is all different kinds of paper I've painted). Here's a close up of the little guy:

1/2 Point Each: These are 6 pendants I created, inspired by some recent trips to Anthropologie. They are each about 1.5 inches high by 1 inch wide. Here is a picture of them with the flash (as some of the colors are better rendered there):

Here are descriptions, in numerical order:
  • 1. "Smokey Lavender":with white and grey specks (looks like stone)
  • 2. "Pink Lemonade": Textured pink clay baked with subtle glitter and yellow matte glaze over the top.
  • 3. "Pink Flowers": Peony pink with light pink flowers and grass
  • 4. "Violet": Deep purple with white/pink flowers
  • 5. "Blue Paisley": Sky blue with pearlescent clay, black paisley design
  • 6. "Golden Garnet": My personal fave  Smiley It's a deep red with gold clay marbled with 3 black flowers painted on top.


Set of 3 dichroic glass pendants and coordinating beads. 1/2 point for each set.

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.
