All Things PinkAndDinky


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

Half point items.

Pearl earrings (.5)
Gray freshwater pearls and peach glass beads on silver-plated earwires

Covered Button Ponytail Holder- .5 each
Only the poodle is available. It is on a Goody Stayput hair elastic.

Doily Angel- .5

Fancypants Ponytail Holder - (.5)
The two metal beads on this are very good quality heavy beads.

Butterfly Gift Tags and Flower Gift Tags- Set of 16 (.5)
All are on heavy cardstock and the butterflies are wooden. For a half point, get all you see in both pictures.

Nashville Craft Mafia bag (.5)

One point items

Pink Patched Tshirt- 1
This is made by the talented Penlowe. I bought it last round but sadly it is a little small on me and I don't really have anyone the right size to give it to. It is very cute and well made (on a high quality shirt) and definitely a great deal at 1 point since it was originally two. It is 34 bust, juniors 7/8.

Closeup of the cool detailing:

Light switch covers- 1 point each
All have a satin varnish to protect them from wear and dirt. Please provide the name of the one you want. Names are listed starting top left and going clockwise for each picture. If you want a set of any, no problem, just let me know. The only ones I can't make more of are "Vintage Fashion Ad" and "Red Shoes and Bike"

Vintage Fashion Ad
Red shoes and bike
Buttons (this one has three real buttons glued on in the corner)

Clockwise from left:
Little people
Scottie Dog
Pink cat  sold to ptarmicwumpus
Stripes and Dots

Clockwise from left:
Blue and cream- Claimed by Lapoli
Pink Shabby Chic
Heirloom Brown
Brown and blue circles

Iconic pen and ink drawing (1)
This is a 4x6 framed print of a drawing made by one of my artist friends.

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!

Two Point Items

Light Green Saucer (2)
This is handthrown pottery glazed with a light green semi-gloss glaze.

Semi-gloss brown bowl (2)
This is handthrown pottery glazed with a semi-gloss brown glaze. Due to the high cost of international shipping, this item is limited to those with a US address. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Japanese pin cushion (2)
This is 2 points because it is an antique (I added the pin cushion top today though so that part is not  Smiley). In my opinion, what makes it so cute is its diminuitive size. It is smaller than an espresso cup and most egg cups, yet it is plenty big to hold a project's worth of straight pins.

As you can see from the bottom, it is fairly old.

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.

Three point items.

GET any 4 items in this section for 1 point!!!!

Choose any 4 items for one point. Or you can choose 2 and then get something else from the half point section. Please indicate item by name.
Roughly left to right:
3 potholders (all 3 for .25 pt)
2 woven straw envelopes (both for .25 pt)
Vintage learn to knit booklet
Piglet patch
Carebear embroidery kit
24 gauge beading wire

Supply Annex  Supply Annex  Supply Annex

Colorbox Sponge stamper (2)- features various shapes that fit into the handle tool for stamping. They are also soft enough that you can indent a design into them to further enhance your stampy goodness  Smiley

Two Pewter Charms- .5 for both or 1/4 pt. each
The one on the left is a rotary cutter that says "quilter" on the handle and the other is a hot glue gun.

My house is pet & smoke free!

2 pt items:

Approx. 520m/568yds white cashcotton, divided into two whole balls of 130m/142yds each, and four smaller balls. Not an expert on dying, but I'd imagine it'd be good for that kind of thing...

Green felted-bead bracelet (2pts)

1pt items:

Purple and red glass bead bracelet. Fits my 6.5'' wrist well, with a little room (1pts)

Grey cabled neckwarmer, knitted from a 30% wool, 70% acrylic blend. It has no buttons for the time being, so I can add them according to taste

Birdie embroidery. I can make it into something small, (pouch or cuff maybe?) or you can have it as is as a patch. For more points (negotiable!) i could make it a feature on a bag or something. About 3'' end to end (1pt)

Custom-made shop banner or forum avatar, anything goes as long as I can find images for it! (1pt)

1/2 pt items

Earrings! All 1/2 pt per pair, remember to specify which in your claim PM

Swimming(?) badges. I found these in a charity shop, and although I've kept some of my favourites, there are far too many for me! (1/2 pt the lot)

Lot of crochet flowers, circles and one granny-square. These were my practise, so they may not be perfect... (1/2 pt the lot)

Felt patches. Robot & random embroidery. (1/2 pt each)

It is meant to fit me - 32" bust, 30" waist, 40" hip. This one is worn open, so there is some leeway with the fit - it will be best for someone with a B cup or smaller. I made this last fall, and only wore it once - there is nothing wrong with it, but it was a little warm and a bit too stiff for my comfort. Machine washable. (3)

LV 20  blog!

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.

Included in this kit:
  • a set of size 8 knitting needles
  • enough yarn (your choice of color) to knit one scarf
  • a tape measure
  • a custom binder designed around your chosen theme
  • a list of my favorite knitting websites (both for learning and for patterns)
  • printed text and illustrations to help you learn to knit (though one of the websites I'll direct you to has some awesome videos that may be more helpful for you)
  • 10 knitting patterns listed in order of "difficulty"

If you don't need any of these items (e.g. you already have needles and/or yarn or don't want the binder), let me know prior to your claim and we can discuss modifying the points, or I can make you some custom stitchmarkers. 

Here is a sample binder I just did for another swap - my partner liked skulls.

Knit bag, approximately 4.5"x5" plus handles; felt embellishments. Pics are a little blurry, that's a chocolate chip cookie on the back!

RETRO BLUE OWL EARRINGS - 1 POINT - sold to p&d, but I can make more, just pm me!

A notebook made out of two black floppy disks. Comes with white paper and is refillable. If you'd like mixed paper inside instead of the white, it'll be an extra 0.5 points. (The second pic is representative of the mixed paper insert. Please note the floppy disks will be black.)

Set of 10 push pins made with monopoly pieces. You get the race car, horse and rider, dog, bag of money, iron, thimble, ship, die and two houses. I'll even toss in a freebie motel that the glue softened so it's a little misshaped. When these are stuck into cardboard, you can see the green push pins (that the pieces are glued to) a little bit on some of the pieces.

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! There are two of these available.

Received in a swap from the ever-talented Gavagai and it's uber-cute, but I've decided I have too many bags! Approximately 8"x10" with ribbon handles and coordinating lining.

Received in a swap from the ever-talented Gavagai and it's uber-cute, but I've decided I have too many bags! Approximately 8"x11" with ribbon handles and coordinating lining.

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.

A handknit cell phone holder (or any other small electronic device or stuff) with a super-cute paw print button! 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.

All photos are professionally printed on archive quality paper. Please specify claims by name and size(s).








THE CORRIDOR - *only available as 5"x7"*

THE TREE - *only available as 5"x7"*

OWL PIN - 0.5 POINTS EACH - TWO AVAILABLE Sold both to p&d, but I have enough supplies for 2 more, pm if interested.
Vintage plastic red flower, green button, owl button

Dog "necklace" is about 7" in diameter, unstretched. It is pretty tight on my 36 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). The mushroom plaque is handpainted.

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!)

Stamped, then handcolored with pencil

THANK YOU GNOME (1 available)

OWL THANK YOU'S (4 identical cards available)


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


Purple rectangle knifty knitter - 2 POINTS
Comes with instruction booklet and 1 loom hook (not pictured)

Heavy-duty patterned felt fabric - 1 POINT PER 1/2 YARD
Hot pink (some kind of "recessed" pattern, kinda looks like flowers) - 1 yard available

Red with gold flourishes - 1 yard available

Mix & Match Flannel Fabrics - 0.25 POINTS PER 1/4 YARD

Heart rainbows flannel - 1 yard available

I've got vintage craft magazines and patterns (mainly knit & crochet), puzzle soap molds, scrapbooking fibers, ice cream buttons, acrylic yarn, seed beads, and some senior/senora orange cotton fabric.

 Welcome to the Laughing Lark! Open! 

I live in a non-smoking home with my hubby, three boys and a very big, and somewhat arrogant, fluffy orange tomcat. I keep Seymour out of my craft supplies as much as possible, so I don't have to brush orange fur off of everything. Wink

 To help our organizers, please copy just the bolded black text when claiming. Thanks!
Small pictures are clickable links to bigger images.

If I removed something from my shop that you were eyeing, I might still have it, so please PM me! Smiley

One Point! Pendants! A wood and opalite medallion, a purple kitty, a cherry quartz flower medallion, etc... (1)

One Point! More Pendants! Purple kitty, a person, a tumbled quartz crystal, etc...(1) I made everything but the crystal!  Smiley The crystal has a hole for stringing.

One half point! Blue and purple earrings (1/2) These are glass-based pearls surrounded with howlite (I think it's howlite) dyed turquoise blue, little glass seed beads, and acrylic iridescent beads The earwires are surgical steel. These earrings were very fun to make!  Smiley

Gemstone pendant necklaces for 1/2 point!
These necklaces are made with plated base-metal chain. Some of the chains came with beads already on them. Beads you see on the chain itself are acrylic. These are fun little gift necklaces, or good casual work jewelry. I made all the pendants. Some of these have clasps; others just slip over your head. Click the photos for a closer look. They are all fairly longish. I can measure if you like. I was trying to get my photos done while Ian napped, and did not take the time to measure them. Wink

The purse is unlined, 12" across at the base, 10" across at the top, and about 8" deep. The knitted cord strap is about 32" long.
