Gothmom's Ye Olde Shoppe of Random Stuffe

Baby Jayne Hat - 3 pts

okay not the Baby Jane from the film with Bette Davis, but a Jayne hat for the kind of person with a really smallish head -- but maybe not a baby, but a kid.  A grown up could wear this if they had a smallish head or liked a really snug fit.  Made of super bulky wool in the ubiquitous jayne colors.

Lavender Leather Mask - 3 pts

A Lovely little leather mask the color of lavender leaves. (that's green...)  Also covered all over with stamped leaves - its got a row of curled spikes at the top. 

This is a smallish domino that would fit really well on a young person's face.  Don't forget Halloween is coming and some kids are sophisticated enough to pull something like this off!

Leather Horns -  1 pt
Okay all you satyrs, faeries, demons and devils, you need a pair of these horns - they are totally prosh and lightweight.  They affix to your head with an "invisible" stretchy cord and unlike those clunky, heavy polymer clay horns, these babies won't hurt you if you bonk your head with them on.  I have dozens of these!  I sell these on my etsy shop for big bucks, here's your chance to get them on the swap!

that's my husband, isn't he handsome in the horns?

a pair of curly horns.  I have curly and straight.  White, Black and Red

Leather Rose - 1 pt

A leather rose is a great gift.  They never die because they're dead already!!! (gimme a break guys, I'm GOTHmom after all!) 
Seriously, you want a leather rose in your lapel or wrapped in your hair. 
Colors available are Red, Black and White.  (I've got about 10 on hand)

ATCs - .5 pts for both
a couple of ATC's I made.   I have a dark sense of humor!

*we* shot a bear!

captain hammer (I'm obsessed)

Claims from me:
list all claims made to your shop none -1 pair horns (1 pt)
1 pr horns (1 pt)

All crafted items come from a non-smoking household with one lovely beagle. The smaller photos are all clickety-clicks to larger images.
Crafted Items


Handknit bag - (3)
Colors are showing a little off on my screen. What is showing up as blue in the photo is actually more of a purple color. The other colors are pretty accurate, though. This is a roomy bag with space for lots of stuff.


Set of 5 Gocco printed owl notecards & matching envelopes - (2)
The lighting for this photo is crappy, but they're bright white notecards and matching envelopes.


Pink paisley tote - (1)
Handmade, but not by me. Approximately 15"x16". Has a front pocket.

Dragon necklace - (1)
I believe the chain is 16-18" long. Pendant is a turquoise stone with a gold-tone dragon. Both are independent of each other, so the dragon can move freely.

Original Photography - Choose two 5"x7"s - (1)
Washington D.C. Subway


Winter Corridor


River Runs Through It

Set of 5 Gocco printed notecards (with blank envelopes) - (1)
All notecards come with blank, white envelopes. Choose any combination of 5 of the following notecards. The larger white and cream notecards are 5"x7" and the smaller multicolored notecards are 3"x5".
Owl - 5 multicolored available

Bird Cage - 10 cream, 12 white, 6 blue, 7 mauve available

Birds on Branch - 7 cream, 14 white available

Imagination necklace - (1)
Pendant says "Imagination is everything. It's the preview of life's coming attractions."


Miniature mahjong tiles hair clip (0.5)

Earrings - (0.5)
Each pair of earrings is 1/2 point. Please specify knitting, owls or share blue flowerwhen claiming. All except the share earrings are sterling silver findings.

Doggie holiday collar (0.5)
Its just a little too tight on my slightly-overweight beagle. I can get exact dimensions if anyone is interested.

Fun fur scarf (0.5)

Supply Items


Maizy sockyarn - (3)
Some fun red, white and black sockyarn that's 82% corn fiber and 18% nylon. Machine washable and dryable. 7-8 sts/inch on size 0-2 US needles. 204 yds per skein. I'm not certain, but I don't think this is self-striping, I think it's just varigated. Both skeins are yours for just 3 points!

Two skeins of DROPS Alpaca Yarn - (3)
You get two skeins of this yummy 100% alpaca yarn. There are some cute sock patterns out there using this yarn, and these two skeins are enough for most of 'em!
It's a gorgeous shade of purple. Here's a link to the DROPS page with a photo and all the info.  https://secure.webquarters.ca/wooltrends/detailedproducts.asp?pid=137

Priority Box o' Yarn - (3)
I'll pack a flat-rate US priority box full o' yarn for ya. Most will be acrylics, acrylic blends and some will be remnant balls. Great for small projects and amigurumi. Due to shipping costs (and the fact that I'm using a US priority box), this is limited to U.S. residents - sorry!   Undecided


Vintage bird fabric - (2)
This is a vintage knit fabric. I'm not sure about fiber content, but if it helps, the fabric is very stretchy and has a slight sheen to it. 2 points per yard (46"x36"). Two yards are left.

Polo Yarn - (2)
I'm not sure of the actual manufacturer, but it's a very soft, squishy, LYS-quality acrylic/cotton blend. 75m per skein. 2 points per skein or get all 4 skeins for 5 points.

Noro Daria Yarn - (2)
This is that interesting corded-type yarn. Not really sure how to describe it, but it's great for making belts, bags, hats... Each skein is 50m. Three skeins available at 2 points each or all three skeins for 4 points.


Knitting Magazines - (1)

~ Msviolaceous' Den of Iniquity ~

Wildside. 2 oz. faux cashmere (100% nylon) roving. This roving is hypoallergenic and animal-friendly, but it is marvelously soft and drafts very smoothly. I dyed this haphazardly on purpose, with lots of white splotches. I wanted the colors to blend up lighter with depth and interest when spun. The yellow will mellow the most. Two points.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v472/Msviolaceous/Craft%20Projects/wildside.jpg

Cinnabar. 2 oz. faux... cashmere or angora, I can't remember! Either way, it's more wonderful hypoallergenic and soft, fluffy 100% nylon roving. Try something different! This one is a semi-solid reddish orange, with some darker patches to create just a bit of depth in the finished yarn. The lowlights have just a bit of brown, so if you mix or ply it with fibers that contain brown or carmel tones it will look great. One point.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v472/Msviolaceous/Craft%20Projects/cinnabar.jpg

Ocean Shallows. Approx. 2 oz. silk noils. Silk noils are a textured, sticky silk product, like clumped-up cobwebs. Use alone or mix with other fibers to make nifty textured yarns. Please note that there are some white spots in this batch (picture is representative) because noils are very dense and it's hard to get the dye all the way through without messing up all the connections between the fibers. However, if this bothers the claimer I can run it through one more time and add blue or green to the few remaining blank spots, just let me know when claiming. If you want to try noils but aren't wild about these colors, I do have one more lot of noils available for custom dyeing. Two points.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v472/Msviolaceous/Craft%20Projects/oceanshallows.jpg

Peppermint Smoothie. Mystery wool with sparkly bits, approx. 22 yards chunky/bulky. I don't know how much the total weight of the starting batt was, but I know it was well less than 2 oz, so why don't we call this a half skein? Plied with cotton thread into a thick and thin boucle. Some of the sparkly bits stick out, and you have the option of letting them hang out of your knitting or carrying them along so they get worked into the fabric. Or you could tease the yarn so more stick out! One point.

Starting points: 2
Ending points: 2

All Things Pinkanddinky


Items crafted in a smoke-free home. However, I have two cats who each have their own key to my craft room.

1/2 point items:

Covered button ponytail holders- .5 each
These are each on a new brown Goody hair elastic, except the pink one has a black elastic. Choose bird, pink, tree, or deer.

Switch plates- 1/2 point each. Varnished to protect them from dirt and wear. Comes with screws.

Paris collage-.5 point REDUCED!This is 5x7 inches and lovely framed.

1 Point Items

Arm band wallet-1
Made from waterproofed cotton so it won't absorb sweat. Velcro closure. One-size-fits-all adjustable strap. Lined with pink fabric. Perfect for times when you don't want to carry a purse.

Notecards- 3 cards for one point. Please indicate Set 1 or Set 2.
These are flat cards (do not open). Comes with envelopes.
Set 1: Buttons and Measuring tape

Set 2: Lace and fancy findings

Tooth fairy box- 1 point

2 Point Items

Vintage handkerchief apron- 2
Vintage but in perfect condition!

Handthrown Green Saucer-2

3 Point Items

Wooden Vintage Purse- 3 points (can only ship to US)
I bought this about ten years ago at a flea market and have enjoyed it so much. But seeing as I haven't used it in several years and it is too awesome to go to waste, I thought I'd let it go to its next owner. I hate to do it but I have got to limit this heavy item to those with a US address only.

Here is the back. You can see where the two pieces are glued. But it has held together fine for many many years.

The inside is an interesting color  Smiley


Frame Bracelet-1.5

Copper herb labels- 3 packs for .5 point REDUCED!These come with a stylus to emboss them with the name of the herb or whatever you want to label.
