All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!

The Shop the Swap (or STS) is a different kind of swap in that we start with finished items.  We use a point system in which you price items in points that you receive when you sell your shop item to another swapper.  Once you have sent your claim out , you can use those points to buy any available item from any open shop in the swap.   Like the real world, you cant spend points that you dont have (no overdraft here) and you cant hoard your points under your mattress (you must close and go shopping when you have +7 points). 

- Post a shop in this thread with at least 5 finished, handcrafted items for the other swappers to choose from.  You can also post a small amount of craft supply items at the bottom of your shop.  **Custom items can be offered, but must be finished and sent in a timely manner, so keep this in mind and only offer custom items that you can finish quickly.  Please let us know if you will be sending late.
-Handcrafted items from other people may be offered in your shop, BUT  be aware of the potential of hurt feelings when selling items made for you in other swaps.  This is a high profile swap that many people see.  Crafted items from others must be credited with the name of the creator or you will be requested to remove that item.
-Each item should have a SHORT identifiable title, description and picture.  Each item should be priced between 1 and 3 points.  Groups of items can be priced at a choice of 2 for 1 (or 3 for 1 etc).  Charge what you think is fair for your crafted item, considering time/supply cost/popularity.
-Check peoples wishlists and use the discussion thread for brainstorming any new items to offer in your shop.


-all persons new to the swap receive 3 points to spend.  This is a STS loan and you must leave with 3 points (in effect pay the loan back) for positive feedback.   
-Your shop must be open before you can spend your points in other shops.
-Remember there are no guarantees that claims will be made from your shop.
-Everytime someone claims from you, you will get whatever point price you have listed for it.  List the claim at the bottom of your shop and add the points into pending and to your points total.  You cannot spend pending points.
-Once you have sent the claim, move the points into current.  All current points are spendable so go shopping!
-When you have +7 points (a TOTAL of current and pending) you must close your shop temporarily.  Edit your shop post to put CLOSED at the top in big bold letters that people will see.
-Once you go shopping (with your current points, you may have to ship first)and spend your points down to 5 or less, you can re-open your shop.
-Each round  claims to and from you should be listed with your point tally at the bottom of your shop.  See the next post for the proper shop format.
-Points will be carried over to the next round.  You need to send a sign-up for each new round of the STS, which will occupy a separate swap slot in your profile.


-Each round will need a space in your swap profile
-Positive feedback for the previous round will be given once we have been notified that all your outstanding claims have been sent AND you have signed up/opened shop for the next round.  If any of these claims go missing you may be required to remake/refund the points/offer something else in your shop if you have no DC# or shipping receipt.  If you have a valid DC# or shipping receipt an angel can be arranged.

-If you wish to leave the swap, please let the organizers know.  Positive feedback will be given if you have 3 points and all your claims have been received.
-Negative feedback will be given for leaving with less than 3 points.  If you wish to leave and need points, have a sale, let people know in the discussion thread, offer some supplies. 
-Spend your points down to 3 if you do not plan on continueing to the next round.  If you leave with more than 3 points, any points above 3 will go into the inflation fund if you have not sent in a sign-up by the end of the next round's signup period.  Again, reminder pm's to join will not be sent out.  You can sign up and just go shopping if you do not wish to open a shop, just let us know. These points will not be returned to you should you join the STS in a future round.  So go shopping!

-Remember that you have ONE WEEK to ship from the day you receive a claim.
- DC# are required on all claims if eligible AS PER CRAFSTER SWAP RULES; if sending internationally please keep your postal receipt until your item is received.   Thin items can be padded with a plastic grocery bag or something similiar to make them thick enough for a DC#.  If your item has not been received within a reasonable time (3-4 weeks domestic; 4-5 weeks international) an angel can be arranged if you have a DC# or postal receipt.  If not you will be required to remake or offer something else from your shop and resend.
-Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

-It is your responsibility to keep relevant people informed of your shop and claim status
-all claim/send/receive pms must be sent to all 3 organizers as well as to the person you are claiming from/sending to.
-Poor communication will be noted in your feedback.  This includes not informing the organizers/other swappers of claim status via the correct claim format; not posting in the discussion thread; slow signups for the next round when you have less than 3 points.
-Do join in the lively conversation on the discussion thread which can be found here:

Shop format

Name of your shop and a brief bio, your location..

OPEN or CLOSED  <<remember to change this when you need too!!>>

-List all crafted items you have to offer, either by high point to low point, newest to oldest-however you like to organize your items.
-A good picture of your item makes it much more likely to be claimed
-Make sure every item has a SHORT recognizable title that can be used in claiming (and makes it much easier for cutting and pasting to the claims list)
-Clearly mark the price of the item (1-3 points)
-List how many of the items are available
-Once items are claimed, it is your responsibility to remove them from your shop to avoid claim confusion.  Pictures can be transferred to the gallery for each round.
-Include a brief description of the item

-Craft supply items can be listed after crafted items.  Please keep these to a  manageable amount and if you have more than a few use thumbnails for pictures.  If you put the thumbnail links together with no spaces they will show up in a line.
At the end of your shop please put your claims list and point total

Claims made from me -  <<List all claims made to your shop for this round only like this:>>
to alteredmommy   fabulous soap (2 pt)

Claims I have made -  <<List all claims that you make to other people like this>>
from lapoli fabulous roving (2 pt)

Started with: 2   <<This is how many points you start the round with>>
Pending:2           <<This is the point total of claims made to you that HAVE NOT BEEN SENT YET-once you
                               send these points get removed from pending and added to current points
Current:1            <<These are your spendable points from claims that you HAVE SENT-the point value of any
                                claims you make gets deducted from here

TOTAL: 3           <<This is the total of PENDING and CURRENT points.  When the total is +7 you must temporarily
                               close your shop and spend (using current points) down to 5 or less

A wishlist of items you would love to see in peoples shops can be included at the bottom of your shop   

Claim/Send/Receive pm format
All pms must be sent to all 3 organizers alteredmommy, lapoli, loves2experiment AND the person you are claiming/sending/receiving from.  All pms must be sent in the proper format to be valid, the FIRST properly formatted claim for any item wins the claim. 

Here is an example of a claim made on January 1:
To: alteredmommylapoliloves2experimentPhizzychick
Subject: STS 22 Claim

Send by January 8
Phizzychick to alteredmommy 5 neato cards (1 pt)
                                        -bunch of doo-dads .5, bird necklace .5 (1 pt)
Cheryl DM
10 frozen solid street
My town, AB
Canada,  H0H 0H0

Here is a line by line breakdown:

TO:   <<all 3 organizers must be in this line and the person you are sending to.  We need to see all names in this line for the claim to be valid.  Make sure you use the To: space and NOT the bcc space.  Please check your outgoing message copy to see that the correct people received the pm and resend the message to everyone if anyone gets missed-this is REALLY, REALLY important and we dont mind getting copies as long as we eventually get a correct one!  Hint- write the names with quote marks around each one except the last>>
SUBJECT:  <<STS round #  Claim  OR Send OR Receive Please make sure the subject line is correct as it really helps with filing the hundreds of pms into the proper folder>>

SEND BY  <<7 days from the date that the claim was made, which is the date directly under the claim date on the calendar, include this on ALL claim/send/receive pms>>

Phizzychick to alteredmommy 5 neato cards (1 pt)
                                                  -  bunch of doo dads .5, bird necklace .5 (1 pt)
<<the person you are claiming from goes first, you go second>>
<<use the brief title of the item on ONE line (this needs to be cut and pasted to the list)>>
<<each full point claim should be written on a separate line>>
<<multiple part point claims should be written as 1 claim as above>>
your address, written as it should be for mailing

<<you can copy the original claim made to you, make sure you change the SUBJECT line.  Obviously when you send a claim, your name goes first and the person you are sending to goes second.>>

<<again you can copy the original claim, making sure you change the SUBJECT line to receive

Any personal comments or messages (I love this  thankyou etc..) needs to be put at the BOTTOM  of your message so we can see the claim info.

General Info

What is the Shop the Swap inflation fund?
This is where the extra points go.  The Shop the Swap has its own little economy and the average points per person runs about 3.5- mostly because of many swappers leaving with less/more than 3 points in earlier rounds.  The points need to stay in the swap to keep inflation down, that is why we ask that people spend down to 3 pts when leaving.  The inflation fund may be used to offset people leaving with less than 3 points; refunds for claims that have gone missing etc.

My points/claims don't match what I think they should. Is something wrong?
If it has been awhile since you made the claim or if any of the organizers admit to having been drunk/sick/tired/attending to life in the real world when we last updated the claims or points, go ahead and send us a PM. Otherwise, give us time to get caught up with claims. If your claim is a few days old and not has not shown up on the list, please send us a pm inquiring about it (it may have been missed in the hundreds of pms that we get or not messaged to everyone)

I think I have 7 points but you only show me with 6, am I closed? OR I think I have 6 points but you show me with 7, am I open? OR Why are my points still pending, I sent those items?
In general, if you have recently changed your points, you're probably right and the point total is probably out of date. When in doubt, it's fine to go with what you think your status is. It doesn't hurt to include a little note in any PM's you send letting us know, just in case there is an issue. (For example, "XladyluckX just claimed my peanut butter sculpture, but your list shows my shop as closed. I claimed a couple things recently so I think I should be open and this claim should be ok.") Now, since you are the person who is the most up to date on your own point total, help us out!! Please close your shop when you know you're at 7 points.  Re-open your shop when you know you are at 5 points or less. And, if you've sent us a PM saying you sent items, go ahead and spend the points, even if they still show as pending points on the list.

Why do I have to list my claims in my shop? Aren't you keeping track of my points?
Yes! We are keeping track of your points, and in any disagreement, ours is the list that counts. But to make it easier to resolve any disagreements, we'd like to be able to compare your list of what you think you've claimed/has been claimed from you, and compare it to our list.  I do go through everyones shops on occasion to add up points and make sure were all on the same page.
Also, if you keep a running list of your claims in your shop, it makes it much easier for people to look at your shop and figure out if you are open or closed in case you havent updated recently or when the points list hasn't been updated in the last 5 minutes!

If you have any further questions, please dont hestitate to pm the organizers!!!

!calluna’s Shop!
Direct from the California Redwoods to you! All items guaranteed to be 100% free of banana-slugs!

I do not smoke, and neither does my dog....But we're both rather fuzzy!

For 3 points:

Rules of Fight Club sampler -- Needlework sampler (mostly cross-stitch) on oatmeal-colored aida cloth; threads are yellows, blues and purples. I’ve finished darkening in the lettering since taking this picture and will block it and add a bit more to complete the empty areas before sending it. Thanks Zelda.Suicide!

For 2 points:

recon’d vintage children’s textbook to CD holder, bright - can hold 28 CDs and several liner note booklets. Bright colors, retro children’s theme, has a notepad inside and free space for adding personal embellishments. Manu Chao not included.

recon’d vintage music textbook to CD holder, bronze – see pics in this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=220337.0
If you’d like a matching journal to go with it, you can get both for 3 points total.

Custom snarky/subversive cross-stitch – AsphaltQueen’s will be done soon! All will have cool font and art nouveau-ish border. PM me to discuss in advance! This may be 2 pts or 1 pt, depending on how big of a project it is.

For 1 point:

set of 5 handmade Valentines Day cards - I may add some more to them before I send them out, or maybe you want to add more to them. They're fairly small, maybe a smidgen bigger than ATCs. All come with envelopes, but some are a little thick to fit in their envelopes. I have a couple more in progress too, and I'll include them if I finish them in time.  Smiley

Journaling prompts in a box - 50+ prompts for journaling, or words for random ATC theme inspiration. I have collected various styles of prompts and printed them all on cardstock, and will stuff as many as will fit into an Altoids tin or little wooden box (your choice), which will be decorated however you like.
Goes great with a journal, incidentally...

bright book with postcard pocket: This was an experiment; hence the bright wonky colors (wonky to me, maybe not wonky to you). Elastic loop on the inside for holding pens, and flip-up pocket for storing postcards or whatnot. Pages are a basic glue binding, with mixed paper and some random retro clipart.

custom-made recon’d hardcover book from an old Readers Digest Condensed Book. The one shown is sold, but I have a variety of different cover colors and patterns, and I can do a variety of different bindings. They can be matched or mismatched if you prefer. The binding of the one shown is a Japanese album/flutterbook, which is an accordion binding with no open end.

rust-colored blank book - concertina/accordion binding – the one on the left is still available (thanks to pinkanddinky for buying the other one!). Very thick paper, I think it is Canson Mi Teintes. Covers reclaimed from old Readers Digest Condensed Book.
 thanks to britnlind for buying the 2nd one!

custom-made recon blank book - the ones without photos generally have plain covers, and all can have the covers altered if you like. Choose from these hard-cover titles:
 - "To The Wedding" (brown and black)
 - "Romantic Rebel" (very old and worn. grey)
 - "Unto A Good Land" (blue-grey, has a small train going across the front)
 - "World Shopping" (I have a few of these; they all have international scenes on them from the 60s or 70s)
 - "Madam, Will You Talk?" (yellow)
 - "Rock & Roll Heaven" (red)
 - A green book with no writing on it, but stamps of 3 pears are embedded on front
PM me to discuss in advance!

For 1/2 a point:

Cat toys - 2 for half a point. They look kinda like this, but a little fancier as I keep adding stuff to them. Made with clear tubing, wire, beads and misc findings like bells, feathers, yarn and ribbon.

Barbie pasties! Not pasties for Barbie, pasties for you (or other recipient) with Barbie on them. Technicolor images of vintage Barbies from a 1960s craft magazine, decoupaged on cardstock base, backed with vinyl and sealed to discourage deterioration. Off-white and yellow lace trim on the outer edge, with a bow made from the lace on the bottom of each. Clear iridescent sequins dotted around the outer surface. No tassels on the end and no special emphasis on the nipples...Though, if you have some Barbie shoes, it would be awesome if you made tassels with those! I can't find any, myself.

set of 5 molded crayons from scrap-crayons:

Card holder, ATC display or small scrapbook -- slot-and-tab binding, approx 6x12”. Ribbon keeps it all closed and can be easily removed. Some of the pages have pockets for holding things, most do not, but things could be easily mounted on the pages.

Scrap records: Set of 9 solid vinyl records with retro-print scrapbook paper covering one side. There's a hole punched at the edge of each if you want to hang them up, but binding them together into a "record-book" didn't work. On the back side the paper leaves a blank pattern where circular images can be placed if desired (such as the one in the lower right-hand corner of 2nd picture). I had this idea but couldn't figure out what to do with it, so I'm offering them now to you.


1 point

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

2 yards of vintage cowboy fabric

Half-a-point items

2009 Ann Taintor calendar - Cheeky as ever, and it is still sealed in plastic. Here's all the months:

butterfly mould: 3 butterfly shapes in hard, thin plastic that's kinda brittle, with wooden supports nailed underneath the mould for support. I tried making wax-tarts with this mould but the shapes are a little too shallow.

classic weird ephemeral goodie: Michael Jackson sheet music book! Even better, it's for electric keyboard.  Roll Eyes Includes songs up through his early-'90s "Man in the Mirror" era.  Grin EE-hee!

DCWV's The Winter Matstack: +/- 135 sheets of blue and purple winter-themed paper, over 25 different designs. 4.5" x 6.5". Acid free.

Fabric - .5 point per yard

- burgundy velvet, non-stretchy. about 4 yds available.

-burgundy felt (craft quality). about 2 yds available.

Take one of these items for FREE with your purchase (please request specifically):

- battery-powered christmas tree lights, 10 lights on the strand. Battery pack requires 2 "C" batteries.

- images/ephemera – give me a theme and some likings and I’ll send you some

- 4-pack of clear bobbins:

- 2 knit sweater arms (100% wool) for felting -- one arm is bright multiple colors and the other has had the color discharged and is now various shades of purple.

- bag of pinecones from redwood trees - They're no bigger than acorns and my yard is covered with them because I live in a redwood belt. I can only send these within the U.S. because of international shipping regulations.

- 100% alpaca yarn scraps from a sweater I unraveled. Several dark colors; pieces are generally 1yd or shorter; I don't know if there's a use for them.

- baggie full of beer/ale bottle caps

- cloud/blob paint-rollers - no handle or rolling mechanism included.

thank you for shopping!

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

~ Msviolaceous' Den of Iniquity ~

I am located in the United States, and I have a really fluffy dog, and a cat who likes to jump on whatever I'm working on.

~ I am open to custom orders! PM me! ~

Handdyed Spinning Fiber!
I take custom orders! Available fibers:
Merino Wool
Faux Angora (nylon)
Firestar (sparkly nylon!)
Silk Noils
Two points for two ounces.

Hand-Dyed Yarn! Dyed by me with food coloring and possibly some kool-aid.
PM me for custom orders. 100-gram skeins of Patons Classic Merino dyed to order. 2 points per skein. Limited stock of KnitPicks Bare Merino Laceweight (2 points) for custom requests!

Handspun Yarn! Have an idea or a project in mind? PM me for custom commissions, with all of the same fiber options available as for custom-dyed roving (above), but possibly more if I can find it in my stash. New option: Navy and silver merino/silk. Three points for a ~50g/2oz skein.

Twine. I tried spinning some "blanket" grade alpaca, and the results were... uncomfortable. I gave up on it pretty quickly. But I thought it would make a nifty alternative to raffia for wrapping christmas presents! 16 yards of strong 4-ply in mixed tan tones. .25 point.

Lime Soda. 47 yards worsted-to-bulky domestic wool yarn. This photo looks weird because it's color-adjusted, but the vibrant crayon-esque green color was getting lost in the wash-out. This isn't perfect, but think "cartoon grass green" or "green apple candy green". It has a little halo because it got slightly fulled in the process of setting all that green. Two points.

Georgia Peach Gone Twisted. 2oz, 7 yds of supercoil art yarn. Made from lapoli's "Georgia Peach Gone Batty" batt with wool and a bit of sparkle. What to do with such a ridiculously impractical yarn? You could use it to accent a felted piece such as Booze Bag (though if I were to knit it, I'd snip the holes afterwards rather than knitting eyelets in, since there is so much variation between coil yarns). You could also wear it as-is, to make Wooldancer's Collier. Or you could just add it to your stash to look pretty, because it will! Three points.

Knitting Service! I will knit a project for you out of yarn listed anywhere in my shop, just claim the yarn and the knitting separately! PM me beforehand. Negotiable points depending on size of project.

Knitting Kit. I will add needles required for a project and any tools I have from my stash of vintage/used knitting stuff, when you claim yarn from the Supplies section. If you like, I can also make up some cheat sheets with photos for techniques used in the pattern you are going to use. Subject to availability, PM first. One point.

Regifted. I claimed these girly boxers in a previous round (capably knit by loudxmouse out of cotton-blend yarns). I was gambling on the size, and I lost. I have about a 38 inch hip, and they swim on me, so they need at least a 40 inch hip I think. There are a series of eyelets around the waistband (which is already stretchy, knit from cascade fixation) so if you were worried about them staying up you could thread a drawstring through. Three points.

Wine charms. Put them on wine glasses at gatherings so that people don't get their drinks mixed up! Set of six with glass and metal beads on memory wire. Choose from silvertone or goldetone. The photos are color accurate, except that on the silvertone set there are light pink beads that got washed out because the flash interacted badly with their iridescence. Try and imagine a pale pink that looks lovely next to the green! Even if you have no use for them personally, they are great to have on hand for "in case of emergency"  gifts, especially as a host/hostess gift alongside a bottle of wine. One point per set.

I can accomodate custom wine charm orders, but PM me first!

Rhumba bracelet/choker. Wooden beads on memory wire. The memory wire will conform to fit any size wrist (modeled on my tiny arm.) It can also be worn as a choker, though it's not exceptionally comfortable that way. .5 point. Newly Reduced!

Pirate Clip. Pirate head bead securely glued onto an alligator-style clip for the hair. I don't remember whether the bead is acrylic or ceramic, and it feels kind of halfway between the two. His earring is metal and swings freely! Claim this cutie before too long, because if I have to look at him in my shop for a while I may regret posting him and take him back for my own collection. b]One point.[/b]

Oddments Button Bobby Pins. I was going to make these mismatched bobby pins and have them claimed individually, but in the end I liked the pairs I was able to put together. Choose from royal purple, earth tones or zebra. These are vintage buttons glued securely onto the standard heavy bobby pin finding. They are thicker and stronger than the standard hide-in-your-hair type of bobby pin. One-half point per pair.

Ladybug Anklet. Sterling-plated chain, wire wrapping, and lobster clasp, with glass beads. Adjustable from 9 to 11 inches. Custom sizing (and conversion into a bracelet) available upon request. One point.

Jean Blue Button Bracelets in two sizes. Though they are each adjustable, one is sized and proportioned for a 5-6 inch wrist (modeled on my 5-inch wrist), and the other for a 7-8 inch wrist (modeled on my mineral water). The bracelets feature vintage buttons attached to a silver-plated chain with silver-plated wire wrapping and a silver springring clasp. The buttons may look black in some of the pictures, but the only colors involved are denim blue, cobalt blue, navy blue, and white. .25 point.



Smocked Pillow Pattern. Vintage 1960's sewing pattern for smocked pillows. They are so fabulously retro! Pic to come soon. One point.

Gourmet Ribbons. These short lengths of ribbon are from the amazing desinger ribbon store Mokuba. If you ever get a chance to go in one of those stores, do it... it's like a crafter mecca. I was going to sew these into headbands, but it still hasn't happened and I don't know when my sewing machine is realistically going to come out of storage. Choose from brown chenille, swiss miss, marshmallow rope, and faux tatting. The brown chenille is shorter than the others at 19.5", while the rest are approximately 21". Also, this picture muted some of the gorgeous subtlety of tone-on-tone color in faux tatting. It's really my favorite of the bunch, and I held back a similar one in green for myself. Smiley .5 point each.

1960's mail-order sewing patterns. Great condition, probably never used. The names are just some I assigned randomly based on how the model looked, so I could tell them apart. .25 point each.

"Headless Hannah" - 38-30-40

"Claudette" - 40-31-42

Vintage Knitting Pattern Books. I inherited a litle old lady's stash, and these gently loved pattern books were among them. I won't be sad if nobody claims them, because when I went to photograph the contents I kinda got wistful! Choose from baby book or basics book. The baby book dates from the early 90's, and the basics book dates from the early 80's. I captured all of the contents of the baby book in this slideshow but only got a sampling of the basics book. Baby also has a couple of crochet patterns. The basics book is neat because for each sweater pattern (various styles for men, women and children) it has directions and gauge in three different kinds of yarn (maybe fingering, sport and DK?). If you have a stash yarn you're trying to match up with a pattern, this will make it much more likely that you'll find a good gauge match. There are some accessories thrown in there, too. .25 per book.

Thanks for visiting!

Wishlist: Jewelry holder, hairpin lace loom, stenciled shirts (Dr. Who, custom ideas), Pretty Puff Slouchy Hat (crocheted pattern found on Craftster), Maiden's Glory crocheted headdress, other interesting crocheted stuff.

COLORED WALLET (vinyl) - REDUCED!   .5 pt

Thrifted, raised design, "enhanced" by me!

GREEN PEARL BRACELET (on clear stretch cord) - REDUCED!  .5 pt

preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '___________________________________________________________________________')


Amethyst and Pearls

preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '___________________________________________________________________________')

BEADED PURSE - 1 point

preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '___________________________________________________________________________')


I made this from polymer clay.  I used leaves from my oak tree, pressed into the clay, and then cut.  After it was baked, I used mica powders to enhance the coloring.  It did not get as "round" around the edges as I would have liked, so that is why I can't really call it a bowl.  But it is not completely flat, so it is not really a plate!  Call it whatever you want!

WINDOW DECALS  (All of them for 1 pt)

preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '___________________________________________________________________________')


preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '___________________________________________________________________________')

THE FOLLOWING SUPPLIES ARE .5 each.  Please pick two.

NYLON PURSES - both for .5 pts)

I bought with these with every intention of beading on them.  Didn't happen...probably won't!

JOURNALS (Blank) - both for .5 pts

First one has 100 pages, hard cover.  Second one has soft cover and 60 pages.

LACE TRIM (.5 pts)

I bought this for a project that never happened!  Never used.  I am guessing there is a yard.  It is not marked.



preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '___________________________________________________________________________')



Lapoli to bkrenning4 - Felted Soap (1)
                            - Soap Sack (1)

Sansa's Swap Shop

Smoke and Pet Free Home

Two Point Items

Leather dog collar (2) Hand made. Bought from a pre-Chritmas fair but does not fit my dog. Has 26 stamped on it, I'm guessing inches. For a large dog. Too big for Australian Cattle dogs or Siberian Huskies.

String Grocery Bag (2) Made from Fantasy Naturale pattern. Has square garter stitch base. Colour is variagated purple. Tickle me Cookie Monster included for size reference only.

For some reason the colour on this pic is not as true to life.

Temari Ball (2) Very solidly stuffed decorative ball. Hand sewn. Pattern from Omiyage book.

Katamari Ball (2) Pattern from Omiyage Book. Hand and Machine sewn. If you want both matching pieces and don't have enough points, I am happy to hold it for a few days for you.

One point Items

Joel Dewberry Wristlet (1) 4 x 7 inches.

Cabled Mug Warmer (1) Made from some beautiful hand dyed obtained in this swap which by chance happened to form this cool striping pattern.

Panta (1) from varigated brown yarn 50% wool  iirc. I used a smaller hook on this one as I thought the first one was a bit large. 16 inches not including the tabs which are approx. 2.25 inches long.

Black Spotted Compact Stitching Case (1)

"Urchin" Hat (1) Size Medium. 50% wool 50% acrylic. Knit.

Half Point Items (0.5 pt)

Quilted bag (0.5) approx 5.5 inches square and 2 inches deep. Two internal pockets, one pleated one flat. Closes with magnetic snap.

Barbie Totable Tote - Small (0.5) 100g

Measures 6 inches wide x 9.5 inches high unfolded and 5.5 x 4 inches when folded

Lining fabric is a different Barbie fabric covered with hearts.

Barbie hostess apron. (0.5) Base white linen fabric covered with gauzy pink Barbie themed fabric. This lay nice and flat but I had to embroider over the seams due to the nature of the pink gauze and now it curls at the edges. To test it, I washed and ironed it before taking this picture to ensure no fraying. This is adult sized and the waistbag is 17 inches. The ties are approx. 40 inches long. Made from an original 1969 pattern.

Green Knitting Needle Bracelet (0.5)

Pink Knitting Needle bracelet (0.5)

Alien Invasion iPod cosy.(0.5) Crocheted from sock weight 100% wool yarn. 10g


Roselllas Tapestry Kit (2) 310g

The pic is of the cardboard in the front which I removed since it was hard to get a picture through the plastic.. Passed on to me unused but cardboard is slightly bent. Comes in a clear plastic bag with the handles that snap together. Contains pre-printed pattern on grid, needle, wool, colour sorter.

Closed for shopping

I'm in Austin, TX, US.  OMG you guys, I had such high hopes for this session! Sorry it took me so long to open. I hope you find something you like!

1 point items

Brown Ribbon Hat. This is the cutest and most fun hat I think I've ever made. It's made with 85% merino 15% polyester yarn, which is sadly discontinued I think. And if you like to knit, this pattern:
I am in love with this hat and the pattern. Oh, since my styrofoam head is bald it makes the hat look a little slouchy, this hat is actually close fitting and comes to just about the bottom edge of the ear.  1pt.
sold to mullerslanefarm, thank you, it will go out by Weds.


Size 6.5 Fearless ring. There's nothing wrong with this ring! I just made it too small for its purchaser and had to make a new one. But if you have a small finger and have no fear...
  1 pt.  sold to alteredmommy, thank you!


Size 7.5 Wink Often ring. Same story as above. Don't work when you really should be sleeping! I'll try to get a pic of it, I still need to do final polish, but feel free to claim if you like the sentiment and it's your size. 1 pt.


The Best Little Beading Book. This is actually kind of a thick book, with lots of patterns and bead info. The cover is a wee bit tattered but all the pages are ok. 1pt.


Wristlet. This is a tiny little wrist clutch that I repurposed by adding a beaded bracelet loop and beads to the pocket zipper pulls. It's approx. 8x4 inches and is white faux leather, very soft and supple. I bought it new but never go anywhere that involves a dainty little clutch so it's never been used. The beads are amazonite, olive jade and some sort of quartz. 1 pt.


Wool crocheted headband. This is fisherman's wool I kool-aid dyed. 1 pt.


.5 point items.

Oooh! Big sale! Now these next items are 1/2 pt each! Please add up to one point!

Purple Bead Fringe. This is bead fringe on a ribbon for embellishing clothes or lamps or chair edges. Never been used, 36 inches. .5pt.


Pastel Mix Crocheted Rose Pin. Has pin back, crocheted of 100% cotton. Cute! Also a little less than 3 inches across. .5 pt


Keychains--all .5 pts each:
Left to right: light purple felt with angry robot embroidery. The back is complimentary flower fabric. 4 inches long
Glass beads, ceramic fairy bead and cool metal bead keychain. 5 inches long.
Faceted new jade, ceramic fairy and cool metal bead keychain. 4.5 inches long.

back of robot kc.

Gala's Shop

these are all going out for the sweat shoppe swap, but i can easily make ones that look similar. i have red, navy, tan and green dye, a different colour can go on a pattern. 1 point.

navy blue pinstripes (the true colour is a bit darker, i had to use flash so you could see the stamping)

classic tan double polkadots (the outside ring is indented, the inside circle is pushed up)

classic tan flowers

green leaves (took the picture while wet, it'll dry less shiny and streaky)

so i've used this as a beanie baby holder for the last ten years. but i'm sure it can be used as a project(s) holder of some kind, or even a baby bag. it's lined in purple, and it's could probably hold two bowling balls. 2 points

1 oz massage oils. they can also be used in the bath, a teaspoon for a tub.
a picture from the website:

i have: buttermilk pancake, lemon sugar, brown sugar, grape soda, toasted marshmellow, melon mist(cantelope and honeydew), black cherry bomb, black raspberry vanilla, and snozzberry (smells very earthy). 1 point each.

green bracelet set 1 point

blue, says lucky with a dice protruding 1 point

red, says lady luck with a dice protruding 1 point

orange, says chance with a dice protruding 1 point

butterfly notebook 1 point (can make a different colour of butterfly)

these are potporri wall hangings, these have a honey smell to them.

peach butterflies 1 (2 butterflies) 1 point

peach butterflies 2 (babies breath) 1 point

i also take custom orders for stencilled shirts. i can do any phrase, and a lot of pictures, but pm me before claiming. 2 points.
some samples of my shirts:

*new* embroidery floss. some peices are no longer then 4 inches, but there are a lot of half skeins. each pack will have at least 5 full skeins. each pack is 1 point.

1) sunset- mostly red and pink, with some orange and a bit of yellow

2) green- all shades of green. the ones that look white are truly just light green.

3) bruises- mostly different shades of blue with some purple

4) neutrals- browns, beiges, and a chunk of black.

double fold bias tape. i believe all of these are 2.75 metres, which is approx 2.5 yards for the US citizens. .3 point for a package.

2 navy blue, 1 kelly, 1 peach

4 extra wide white, 1 orange, 1 lavender

1 extra wide peach, 1 extra wide ocean blue, 1 extra wide medium blue

All Things Pink & Dinky!!!
Open for Business!

1/2 point items:

Red rick-rack pouch - REDUCED to .5
(this one has a small flaw where the rick-rack is puckered. You can see it on the right side of the picture. Still cute and functional though.

1 Point Items

Pantyliner Parade!!!! 1 for 1 point! 3 for 2 points!! 5 for 3 points!!!!!
These will have snaps when you receive them!!! I was just anxious to get my pictures up. Each one has five layers 100% Cotton Flannel. These are ever so slightly bigger than the last round I made and I think this is a better size. They are about 6 3/4 inches (17 cm) long.
Please choose by name (going left to right). I put the number available after each style in parenthesis.
Row 1: Musical Skulls, Pink and green (1), Horses (1), Classy
Row 2: Owls, Stripes (1), Stars (1), Coffee

Row 1: London (1), Travel (2), Aliens, Sweets #1
Row 2: Candy Cane, Hippo, Frog, Sweets #2

Fancy Pants Kitty Hankie -1
Embroidered on cotton handkerchief

Small antique teacup pincushion -1
Comes with the pictured coordinating pins

Twin Egg Cup Pincushions- 1 point for the pair
These are too cute together and they even wear a little rickrack choker. (one of them has some very small chips at the base...you can see it in the picture)

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.

2 Point Items

Vintage scrolled chair pincushion-2
I got this chair at a yard sale and added some padding and changed the cushion because the one on it was kind of grungy. It appears to be handmade from an old coke can. It is absolutely adorable and a wee bit delicate. The fabric on the cushion is also vintage.

So you can see the side scrollwork and get a perspective on size

Wooden Embroidered Bathroom Sign- 2 points
This is lovely to hang on your bathroom door so guests will know where to find it. It is approximately 8.5x6.5 inches and has a sawtooth hanger on the back. Also, I can include a small wooden post that makes it able to stand up rather than hang.

close up

3 Point Items

Wooden Vintage Purse- 3 points (can only ship to US) This is not half off. sorry.
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.


Craftster Book -2

Here is the Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Craftster-Guide-Thrifty-Kitschy-Crafts/dp/1580087477/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1233032981&sr=8-1

    Awesome screenprinted shirt! It has my dropdead skeleton design on the front and is printed on a 100% cotton green shirt. The coloring in the second picture isn't really accurate, the first one is! I have two available, one small and one medium. 1 point each!

    medium - bust 32-36 inches and 24.5 inches long

    Naughty Cross stitch! I did this a while ago and just found it... it measures 6 x 5 inches but the actual cross stitch is about 3 x 2 (1/2 point!)

    Some fraction of a point

    *Price reduced!*If i added up all the hours that went into this.. it would probably be pretty sad! haha.. I used wool yarn that i had dyed myself ( you might remember it from previous rounds.. it was the human heart color!) and crocheted a granny square style purse. I then felted it, let it dry for days and then finished it up with a pink gingham lining w/ matching ties and purple rickrack trim. I think it turned out pretty cute! Measures about 10x10. (1/2 point!)

    Thin White metal skull charms. These are sturdy metal but super thin so they are lightweight and PERFECT for earrings since they are so light! The thinness would be great for all sorts of different altered art. They are 1/2 point per pair or THREE pairs for 1 point. Yours will be brand new in the original packaging, multiple pairs available! Smiley

    Stamps! They are in near new condition made my Stampin' Up! Group of 4 for 1 point, claim by group1 or group2! both sets of stamps claimed by antiruth!

    Plastic Safety Eyes (and a few noses!) 3 for 1 point!

    I've tried to make claiming these as easy as possible and to take clear enough pictures I had to remove each set out of the original bag but they were immediately put back into brand new sealed bags. The groupings are of the original quantity that they came in Smiley They are 3 bags for 1 point or you can get EIGHT bags for just 2 points!

    I recommend clicking on the first picture - that shows all of them.. and the rest of the pictures are close ups of the same original picture. I have multiples of lots of the sets so a big X means there are no more of that particular group.

    The smaller photos are all clickety-clicks to larger images.

    All crafted items come from a non-smoking household with one lovely beagle. If you would like a gift box or bag with your jewelry purchases, just let me know and I'll include one free of charge.

    Crafted Items

    Vintage Watch Ring - (3)
    Made from a vintage Elgin watchface and an adjustable sterling silver plated ring. It's currently sized to around a 7.5. You can adjust it yourself or let me know your ring size and I'll do it for you. (I can size down to about a 4 and I think up to a size 10.) The adjustable portion of the ring is underneath the watch face, so it's not visible when wearing the ring.

    Time Flies Necklace - (3)
    Pendant with watch parts set with diamond glaze for water resistancy. Sterling silver sparrow charm. Contains two rubies in the watch parts.

    Time Flutters By Necklace - (3)
    Made with vintage watch parts.

    Handknit Alpaca Socks from Peru - (3)
    I was told that these were knitted with 100% alpaca yarn, but some of them may be a blend - they were purchased from street/market vendors, so  I can't make any guarantees.

    The pink socks are 7.5" from heel to toe and all others are 8". I've read online that that could be as small as a women's size US6, but the socks fit my US8.5 size foot fine. So maybe measure a pair of your socks and see what you think. These socks will stretch, too, and I've found them comfortable over a pair of thinner socks (so kind of like slippers).

    Please claim by color - left to right: purple, green, brown, pink, rainbow (on hold for zelda). One pair of socks for three points or two pairs of socks for 5 points.

    Handknit Wool Socks from Peru - (3)
    Both pairs are 100% wool and both are 8" from heel to toe. Please claim by color - green, blue. Three points for one pair.

    Handknit Alpaca Hats from Peru - (3)
    Fit an average adult head. Please claim by color - from left to right, top to bottom: red, bright blue, purple-on hold for LL, light blue, grey. Three points for one hat or five points for two hats.

    Handknit Alpaca Fliptop Mittens from Peru - (3)
    Fit an average adult hand. Please claim by color - top to bottom: Yellow, Light Orange. Three points for one pair.

    Handknit Alpaca Gloves - (3)
    Fit an average adult hand. I have a sneaking suspicion the blue ones are an acrylic/alpaca blend, but I was told they are knit with alpaca.


    Turquoise Sparrow Necklace - (2)
    Sterling silver sparrow atop a turquoise stone.

    Red Birdie Necklace Set - (2)

    Oops Octopus Necklace - (2)

    Alpaca Knucks from Peru - (2)
    Handknit fingerless gloves from Peru. Please claim by color - left to right, top to bottom: green, blue, black, burgundy, lime.

    Handknit bag - (2)
    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.


    Antique Guns Earrings - (1)

    Mini-bookmarks - (1)
    Bookmarks are 3.5" tall, so they're great for both soft- and hardcover books. Contain Swarovski crystals for some sparkle! One point each, claim by name. The first photo shows the shape and length of the bookmark (which is the same for all of them), and the subsequent photos show the different charms and crystals.

    Knitting, Bat, Gecko, Toadstool, Teacup, Sewing Machine (on hold for Zelda)


    Gizmodgery Brooches - (1)
    Pin-backed brooches made up upcycled materials. Sealed with Diamond Glaze for a shiny finish.
    Brooch #1

    Brooch #2

    Brooch #3

    Winter's Breath Jewelry Set - (1)
    Bracelet and earrings set made out of glass beads and swarovski crystals.

    LOVE Scrabble Display - (1)

    Sage and blush memory bracelet - (1)
    Made with glass pearls and metal findings. The bracelet is gorgeous in person - click on the photo to see a close-up of how it shines!

    Happy Buddha memory bracelet - (1)

    Latch-hook panels - (1)
    Latch-hook panels. All are approximately 14"x14" with 1-2" of canvas edges for finishing as you like. (You could hand these on the wall as they are, or turn them into pillows, or sew the canvas edges together for a small floor rug.) Please claim by name - top to bottom: Simba, Scooby, Elmo, Donkey, Shrek. One point each or claim all five for 3 points.


    Black cross memory bracelet - (0.5)
    Glass pearls, metal findings and a cross charm with crystals.

    Earrings - (0.5) per pair
    Claim by name. "Spiders", "Green Sparklies"
