Sansa's Swap Shop

Items come to you from a small farming community near the Great Barrier Reef.

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)

Business Card Holder (1) Joel Dewberry fabric. Uses free Amy Butler pattern.

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.

Quilting Book (1)

Beginning Spinning Kit: (3)

Includes choice of spindle, specify S1, S2 or S3 and roving of my choice.
S1 claimed by LaughingLark (Thanks!)

The middle two spindles (S1 & S2) can be used as either a top or bottom whorl spindle by using a half hitch in the groove.

The far right spindle (S3) is an Ashford student spindle and is only a bottom whorl.  Claimed by veludo

You can increase the weight of your spindle to spin thicker yarn  by purchasing the silver thingee shown on spindle S1 below the whorl (not included)


This is made fresh by me.  No premade lotion base here. 

Lavender and Aloe Vera Lotion
Ingredients:  Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Distilled Water, Sweet Almond Oil, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Glycerin, E-wax NF, Stearic Acid, Lavender Essential Oil, non-paraben preservative

4 oz Lav/Aloe Lotion (1) 3 available 

Aloe Vera Lotion
Ingredients:  Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Distilled Water, Sweet Almond Oil, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Glycerin, E-wax NF, Stearic Acid, non-paraben preservative

4 oz Aloe Vera Lotion (1) 1 available 

Milk Soaps (cold processed using 100% fresh milk) 1 pt

Lavender Vanilla    NEW! 03/06/09
Soothing Lavender with a kick of vanilla - and not your ordinary vanilla either!  This is Black Vanilla with a hint of Patchouli in it!!

Please note, the soaps do not look the same as they do in the picture.  The purple has faded to a greyish-lavender and the dark cream is now brown.  Still smells wonderful!!!


Dragon's Blood  NEW! 03/02/09
It's moody, warm and very appealing with touches of amber, incense and a tiny hint of patchouli making the layering of this fragrance something special. (as described on FO suppliers website).

This fragrance colors the soap to a dark purplish brown

Pepper Zest  
Lemongrass, Lime, Sweet Orange and Black Pepper essential oils.  Swirled with yellow, green & orange.

Certain to perk you up the last of these cold winter days!

Lavender & Lace
A new look to a favorite scent.  The new swirl was inspired by Sewknitter.  Delicate purple and white swirl.  Only the finest ingredients used in this rich and creamy milk soap (including Lavender essential oil).

Lemongrass & Sage
This isn't overpowering in either lemon or sage, but combines both into a fresh clean scent. 

Sweet Pea
Not the prettiest soap out of my soap kitchen, but the sweet scent of spring is wonderful!  I had difficulty with this soap turning into soap-on-a-stick so had to hot process it. 

Meeskers 1 pt

Made from 100% Hand Spun Wool.  Stuffed with raw Dorset wool and Organic Catnip (just picked and dried by me). 

Endorsed by Seymour!

Claim as:

M1  (1 pt)

The somewhat eclectic shop of various crafty things!

Location: Canada
Stats: Pet-free (although I wish it weren't!), smoke-free
Bio: I'm a university student specializing in Behavioral Neuroscience. Not surprisingly, I have a strong nerdy streak. However, I try to balance this out with a healthy dose of creative expression through crafting and theater. Smiley

3 points

Loopy Bracelet 3 pt - (Custom Order) PM me if you want one of these, preferably before you order it. We can discuss colors and then I can go check out a bead store, but I might need more than a week to get it made and shipped off. (If I have all of the bead colors that I need already, I might make it 2 points)

Example of a loopy bracelet in ice blue, pearl, and silver-lined clear beads:

2 points
Punk Princess (Small Skirt - stretch waistband)

Loom Bracelet 2 pt - (Custom Order) PM me if you want one of these, preferably before you order it. We can discuss colors and then I can go check out a bead store, but I might need more than a week to get it made and shipped off. I can do essentially any pixelated design, although if it's really complex, I might make it 3 pt for the mental effort. Below are two examples:

Crocheted Cowboy Hat 3 pt SALE - 2 pt
Received from kidcompassion approximately 2 years ago. It's a beautiful hat and I fell in love with the idea of a crocheted cowboy hat. Unfortunately, I've always been too wimpy to wear it around my hometown. Thus, I would like it to go to the home of someone who can and will pull the hat off!  Cheesy

1 point

Necklace with matching bracelet (1 pt for the set)
Can be selected separately:

Polymer clay earrings (1 pt/pair)
Claim as top row # 1, 2, 3
Bottom row # 4, 5, 6

Ladybug earrings (1 pt/pair):

Cross pendant (1 pt/pendant):
Claim top as beaded cross, bottom as polymer clay cross (can specify left/right one if you want)

0.5 points

Sparkly stretch leggings (0.5 pt) Size: Small Warning: The sparkliness of the fabric makes these kind of scratchy. That's why they're 0.5 point. Only select if you have tough skin.

Needle felted ring
(0.5 pt) received from CraftyZary. It's adorable, as you can see! I would like to send it to a lover of bright colors!

Amaranthine earrings! (0.5 pt/pair)
Left to right: Claim as bicone earrings, stone earrings, and shimmery flower earrings

1/2 point
Scrapbooking Fishing Accent Pages (1/2 point for 4 sheets) (4 available)

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.

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.


Seed beads- 3 for one point
The turquois and red are a bit bigger than seed beads and the cobalt blue are seed beads.
These are a great deal!!

Beads- 1 point for lot
This set includes all you see here (except the brown box): a generous portion of white ceramic beads with blue speckles, long skinny colorful beads, and small white beads.

Vintage Travel Stickers- 2 points per box
These are fantastic for all kinds of projects. Each box includes 20 large stickers. Choose: Wings of the World (vintage airline ads/logos) or Exotic Destinations (vintage hotel ads/logos). These are reproductions of actual old ads from around the world.

Wings of the World:

Exotic Destinations:

Cinderella Slippers .25 REDUCED
Sweet pair of slippers that look like Cinderella's (but these are plastic). Penny is for size perspective.

Thingamadoodad .25 REDUCED
Not really sure what this is, but I think someone could do something really cool with it.

The bottom:

Baggie full of Wooden cutouts .25 REDUCED
Everything pictured for 1 point. Includes large teddy bears (one has a penny on it for size reference), sheep, skirted ladies, bunnies, tulip, apple, crescent moon, and Christmas ornament.

Deer fabric panel .25 REDUCEDNot sure what kind of fabric this is. I think it is cotton but it is on the heavier side. The panel is 29x21 inches. 2 available.
