I would like to claim an environmentally friendly shopper bag, please, with dark green exterior and blue roses interior. I'm not picky on the colors, if you need to use either of those for something else.

I am in California and Im in a non-smoking house with a dog who steps on everything.

Claims this month: 7
Claims allowed (outstanding): 3
Sendouts not sent: 1
Sendouts in transit:0
Sendouts received:  5

My final list! I'm moving and everything is being cleared out!! Mix and match from the lists; everything is negotiable!

FREE with any claim (please mention what items you want if you do want any of these):

- ~9x12" plastic canvas sheet

- not made by me - painted enameled (I think?) switchplate, counrty herb garden with cat and bird

- large stencil of cows and barnyard. This is just a scan of the label-

- Foam bear stamp

- heart-shaped cozy for...something. Maybe a perfume bottle? I didn't make this, it was thrifted.

For your claim, you can pick FOUR of the following:

- big partial skein of old (judging by the wrapper) dye-able yarn; pretty sure it's acrylic.

- big flat magnetic sheet, with white backing on one side...It's about the size of a large bumper sticker, so with a stencil and some spray paint, you could use it to make a removable bumper sticker Grin

- 3 sheets of clear PVC pocket storage for 35mm slides, for putting into 3-ring binder. 2x2 pockets, and really hard to photograph since theyre clear! I have more available, too.  Ideas for other uses for these things: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=249022.0

- 2 bilingual teddy-bear rubber stamps, one says Excelente! / Excellent! and the other says Bueno / good

Or,, you can pick any THREE of the following:

- book "New Crafts: Cardboard" by Emma Hardy. Primarily home decor projects.

- 4 handmade journals made from recycled materials. I will try to send ones that match your taste. This one is just a sample front and back:

- pack of several OLD, regular black, 12 vinyl records (covers not included). More dense/thick than usual vinyl and not floppy.

- Vintage half-apron with pocket. Has some small grease-stains on it.

- about 2 dozen small wooden spools (no thread attached)

- battery-powered christmas tree lights, 10 lamps on the strand. Battery pack requires 2 "C" batteries.  There are so many things to be done with these! I have several packs of them; I can't believe I forgot I had them in all this time  Roll Eyes.

- bag of color pegs for a Lite-Brite! I was hoping to find an actual Lite-Brite at a second-hand store but alas, I only have the pegs.

- 50 clear blank overhead transparency sheets - the kind you can run through the printer and the ink will eventually dry so they can go into a scrapbook or whatnot.

- Vintage rag-rug braiding kit with instructions (you can made one of these rugs without any of the things in this kit, but it might make it a little easier, you never know). I can send you some fabric strips to get started, too, if you want.

- 2 tubes of Speedball block printing ink, 37cc (1.3 liquid oz.). One is red, one is yellow.

- Pack of ~20 12x12" scrapbook pages, with cutout frames in them. They have the word "Celebration" embossed in green on them; this could probably be covered up with other pictures or embellishments if you wanted to. Nice quality paper that could be painted, stamped, etc.

Or, pick any TWO of the following from these:

- book The Gnomes Book of Christmas Crafts by Carol Endler Sterbenz, 1980. http://www.amazon.com/gnomes-book-Christmas-crafts/dp/0810909677/ref=sr_11_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1213744512&sr=11-1
So cute! A lot of the items could be done for any occasion, not just the holidays. A few of the gnome pictures are missing but majority are still in the book (theres a section at the end with gnomes to cut out)

- plaster mold for making two 3-dimensional owls at a time. The finished owls are about 3 inches tall.

- "Recipes for Surfaces: Decorative Paint Finishes Made Simple", by Mindy Drucker and Pierre Finklestein. It's a big one, 255 pages!

- Bob Marley book, by Margaret E Ward (ISBN #0681418664). 80 pages. Good condition, has TONS of color and b&w images, it could be kept for its original booky purpose or torn into for reuse of the images.

- Set of rolls of color-coded stickers with days of the week, in a few languages. They're in a floppy plastic enclosure that keeps them together.  

- 3-d paper Muppet Show centerpiece, circa 1980.  

- pack of several translucent red vinyl records, good for hanging in a window or for a project like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=244225.0

- set of about half a dozen retro glittery photo-litho heat-transfer images for t-shirts or totes. There's a big smiley/scary sun, a panda, a California logo, a tiger, others...They can be transferred with a really good, really hot iron if you don't have a heat-press thing like the t-shirt stores do, but you have to work at it and keep lots of pressure on the iron for a long time. Here's the sun design:

- Vintage floral half-apron with pockets on inside. White gauzy lining on inside which is stained, but doesnt show when wearing it.

- 3 small unfinished wood boxes to paint/decorate...One is of this variety: http://www.michaels.com/art/online/displayProductPage?productNum=cp0179
And the other two are only about 2x2", with a glass square on the top which can hold a 1" picture, an "inchie", or something else tiny for display.

 unfinished wooden dollhouse furniture kit from 1982, with some of the items already assembled. 1-scale, all old-fashioned looking

- vintage woodburning kit in original box. It works but doesnt get as hot as it should.

- set of big molded crayons (they will be half-domes, stars, and or jello-mould shaped)

Or pick ONE of these:

- Vintage childrens book recon to CD holder - can hold 28 CDs and several liner note booklets. Bright colors, retro childrens theme, has a notepad inside and free space for adding personal embellishments. Manu Chao not included.

- recon journal with unlined pink paper

- another recon journal from the same 1960s encyclopedia series. This one has a mix of blue, pink and purple unlined paper, with some pages from the original book included.

- About 100 8.5x11" sheets of off-white translucent paper that I think is vellum. It curls easily but can be run through some printers.

- Mini vinyl record notebook

- Reclaimed alpaca yarn! For a couple months I have been unravelling a hideous sweater of black, burgundy, mustard, blue and brown 100% alpaca yarn. The scraps are all different lengths, from a few inches up to 1-3 yards (a whole sweater, keep in mind) and there's a tutorial here for how to work with reclaimed yarn: http://www.az.com/~andrade/knit/thrifty.html
It might also be felted and re-spun.

- custom-made beaded safety pin cuff bracelet. Here's a couple examples:

- custom-made recon blank book with one of these hard-cover titles:
"Utmost Fish!" (so random I had to buy it. black and dark blue)
"To The Wedding" (brown and black)
Secrets (grey)
Into the Highways and Hedges (green, has a silhouette of two males on the cover)
"The Small Woman" (yellow and red, has chinese lettering on the front)
"Romantic Rebel" (grey)
"The Complete Book of Sewing" (blue)
"Unto A Good Land" (blue-grey, has a small train going across the front)
"The Sweetest Swing" (multicolored, has illustration of baseball player swinging a bat on the front)
"Life at its Best" (small, cover is mainly green with a kitschy outdoor family scene)
"World Shopping" (I have a few of these; they all have international scenes on them from the 60s or 70s)
"Good Morning, Young Lady" (tan; I'm hoping to make this a fairly cheeky/saucy book)
"Madam, Will You Talk?" (yellow)
"Ellery Queen - Cat of Many Tails" (blue with an evil-looking black cat on the cover)
"Rock & Roll Heaven" (red)
"Time for True Tales - and Almost True" (red, with black and white accents...I'm planning to put in a bunch of images from folk and fairy tales)
Another volume of the Do-It Encyclopedia series featured in the recons shown above; this one has a guy in a captains hat working on his boat. Dominant color is blue

- hardcover accordian-style blank book, made with the decorated covers of old "Readers Digest Condensed Books", which are just a bit bigger than the size of a standard paperback. The spine of the original book is removed, so there's nothing identifying it as being associated with Readers Digest  Smiley

- several vintage hankies of various colors and decoration

- grab-bag (errm, box/envelope) of vintage children's books for recon, image cutouts or whatnot, including 2 illustrated reading textbooks, an OLD Donald Duck book, and a Bobbsey Twins book from back when it was just one set of twins instead of 2, and more.

- Flat-rate envelope stuffed with paper, ephemera, and other flat goodies

Thank you for helping me destash!
