My house is smoke free, but I do have cats & a dog. I try to keep them out of the crafting areas & my supplies, but you know how pet hair is.

3 pt items

None currently

2 pt items

Small Jordy Purses: These are about 7" tall by 8" wide, they have a strap for carrying & a child could probably use it as a shoulder bag. They are lined, with a pocket & each one has either embroidery or button embellishments on the flap. Each comes with a matching ID wallet, that's also lined & is 4" wide by 3" tall. They all close with Velcro fasteners that are glued with washable fabric glue. Mention item and name in your claim.


Clover (there's a clover embroidered on the flap that's hard to see in the photo):


And the matching ID Wallets:

1 pt items

Tooth Fairy Pillows: These are all my own design, and each one is unique. I never repeat a bead design on them & try not to repeat the colors exactly. These are approximately 6"x6" with a pocket in the front for a tooth. The pocket has a small ziplock bag in it, to aid the tooth fairy in removal. There's a ribbon loop at the top for hanging on a doorknob or wall hook.

The colors I have are: Yellow, Turquoise, Red, Purple, Pink, Magenta and Orange. When claiming, use the following as your item: Tooth Fairy (color)

Reversible Cuffs: These are reversible with snap closures. 2 of them are 8" long & 2 are 9" long. Colors are on the photo, please use those names in your claim.

9" Cuffs Front:

I'm located in California, and no pet nor smoke.  However, I live with my BIL, who does smoke.  He smokes OUTSIDE, but as I'm sensitive to Cigarette smells if he comes into the house freshly from smoking the cigarette smell lingers for a bit, but he's not home too often.  I don't ever smell smoke on my craft items, but i feel that since I am super sensitive to smells I should disclaimer that plus i feel like each home smells differently anyway, so things coming from other houses will just have a smell, but that is just me.
Thanks for shopping, I hope there is something that you like!
One Point


Colorful bracelete.


iKNIT stitch markers that fits up to size 10.5 needles.


Mixed Matched Xs knitting stitch markers

Green orb stitch marker to fit up to size 10.5 needles.

Hello kitty watermelon lollipop, i bought these for me, but have a lot left over, it was made by a seller on etsy.

Close up of the bead
1 elastic pink wrist beautifier :i would hazard a guess as to the size as small like 6 inches around.close up of the pink acrylic beads

Simply Green

dare to be different earrings: the colors are yellow, the hexagon is yellow, and the little squares are transparent yellow.

different view of the ring
the knot ring size 7

Pink hearts earrings:  a disc of hearts, and transparent pinkish bead. (a better picture will be taken.)

2 points

s'mores cookie bar in a jar, you'll need a little bit more ingredience then what's in the jar, but it's nothing too difficult to purchase.  You will receive directions of course with this.  Make yummy s'more cookie bar.

toggle earrings: these are two points because there are more hardware, the quality of the earring is better as in better materials.

Twiggy Bobble Hat in black & yellow color. (i'm listing these are two because it's already finished, and it's a spare one that I have, I always thought of it as my Huffle pride hat because of the color.)

3 Points


Cabled Kids Hat... Maybe you know of a child who would rock this hat, then this is for you!  Color choice:  Vanna's Choice  130 Honey, Red Heart Soft Yarn Seafoam, Red Heart Soft Yarn Brown like the owl hat below. 

a close up better picture of the owl hat, this one is just for picture purpose.
Brown Owl hat in Red Heart soft yarn, these might be the best acrylics out there in my opinion.  these will be made to order, I will be cranking these out when claimed.

For the two hats above, the colors that are available are, Red Heart Soft Yarn Brown (pictured in hat), Red Heart Soft Yarn Seafoam, Vanna's Choice 138 Honey. Red Heart fleck  I recommend these 4 as they are soft, and the colors are nice.

If you are looking for other colors, please PM me, I may have it, but do not guarentee the quality of the yarn, if you are looking for other colors, I will search my stash for something that seems suitable, and will photograph yarn if need be.  thanks for the claim.


.5 Point (please claim in full point form)

 1 Pale Pink, & Beige Camis.  Size Medium/One Size from American Apparel
(the pink ones are a bit longer then then beige ones when worn.)

 7 Black Medium/one size racer back, material, thin jersey ie (soft)

colors, White & Aqua(i think) medium Underwear.  Personally these ride up when worn, but that could be because i have a large behind or maybe the underwear is too small.  These of course are NEW.  (it sorta feels kinda dirty to be displaying the underwear... so i think I'll just link it.)

white running shorts, medium/one size.  i feel like these run on the small side.

3 Beige tank top, 1 fuschia tank top :same style as beige tank top, except color.

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.
