AA Tshirts (1 pt for lot)
Lot of 4 irregular American Apparel tshirts, most have a very small hole somewhere on them, though the white one seems like it's just off a bit (the way it was sewn).  Great for recon projects or you could always applique over the holes if the shirt fits alright otherwise.  (2 hot pink M/OS, 1 hot pink S, and 1 white L)

superhooker's Den of Iniquity!!


I'm Heather...I live in the Detroit, Michigan area (USA).  There are no smokers in or around my house, but I do have an adorable black haired dog who loves to cuddle yarn (he has good taste!), so there may be a stray hair here or there.

I will take special orders for knitted baby items.  Let me know what you're interested in, and we'll work it out!

3 pt. items:

2 pt. items:

Knitted hand towels.  2 points each.  These two sold to DropDeadSuzie, more coming soon!
knitted from 100% cotton.  If you'd like a different color, pm me and I'll see if I can do it!  They measure 16 inches across, and 18 inches top to bottom, with hanging loop buttoned.

Yellow hand towel. 2 points  this one also sold to DDS, but here as an example!

Bizarregoyles-DIY toys 2 points each
These are DIY designer toys, like Dunny, only its supposed to be a gargoyle.

Pokeball hat!   This hat is sized for a toddler through middle school child.  I tried it on Alexander (he's 9) and it fit nice and snug, like a beanie.  On a smaller child, it would be nicely sized to cover ears.

Homemade fudge!   one full batch (somewhere between 1 pound and 1.5 pounds) = 2points

Homemade peanut brittle!   one full batch (about 1.5 pounds) =2 points

Homemade cinnamon brittle!  (awesome brittle, contains no nuts--if you need to see an ingredient list, I can pm one to you)  one full batch (somewhere between 1-1.5 pounds) = 2points

Homemade Rice Krispies Treats! I'll make a big batch, equal to about 1.5 large pans = 2points

Food items can only be sent within the US, to ensure freshness!  I'll send food items out within one day of making them, and I'll ship priority.  Please remember that if you live in a really hot area, fudge will probably melt on the way to you!

1 point items:

Hand dyed onesies:
These are all dyed in a low water immersion way, that makes really cool looking color variations.  Sometimes the dye colors seperate and make really neat and unexpected combinations.  These are all 1 point each, claim with color and size. 
(for example: chartreuse, 24 mo)

hot pink/chartreuse/browns and greens, size 12 mo, gerber

hot pink/browns and greens/light pink, size 24 mo, carters brand

chartreuse/blues, size 24 mo, carters brand

knitted dish cloths.  I have made 2 pink, 1 in greens/blues, and 2 rainbow (only one shown, but there is another)  I can make these in other colors, just pm me!

Hand dyed silk scarf.   oranges and greens.  measures 13 inches by about 56 inches.

hand sewn felt fancy goldfish:

onesie, size 6-9 mo, on a Gerber shirt, which I've heard run small:

.5 points each:

little metal trashcans with flip up tops .5 pt each

two tatting shuttle thingies  both for .5 pt

fun detroit license plates 2 for .5 pt

Fun tape!  Light blue duct style tape(2 big rolls), and dark blue translucent packaging tape (1 roll) (on hold)  and orange packaging translucent tape (2 rolls)  .5 points each, or take all 5 rolls for 2 points.

hand sewn star ornaments, choose red, plaid, or linen:

hand sewn kittie fortune cookies.  Pink ones shown, but I can make any color, so if you have a color preference, just let me know in your claim.  These are stuffed with catnip.:

kids craft kit to make a memory tray (says best for kids 4 and up...but I've made this with my kiddo, and basically you'll need to help the kid hammer, and then they can decorate and have fun):

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

--closed - thanks all; reopening in Summer!--
I do not smoke, and neither does my dog....But we're both rather fuzzy!

For 1 point:

magnetic mail holder - hard plastic, altered surface. Rescued from its earlier life as an ugly early-80s Avon item with a bland cutesy neighborhood on the front. Now it's got a metallic goldish finish on the visible portions, and lots of embellishment (mail-related) all over the place. There is a small area partitioned inside for pens and such, and the whole thing has a depth of about 1.5 inches. It has magnets on the back so it can sit on the fridge, and it also has holes for nails if it would go better on your wall.

recon’d vintage children’s textbook to CD holder - 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.

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. I can do any number of these. Goes great with a journal, incidentally...

For 1/2 a point:

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.

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:

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

cut quilt pieces for a double-sized wedding ring pattern quilt. - Vintage fabric in various colors and prints

Liquitex Basics Acrylic Gesso - white, 473 mL (BIG bottle). I've used only a tiny amount.

package of several shallow wooden boxes for altars and altering

half a point

flat-rate box stuffed with paper/ephemera
. Must downsize, so let me know what you like and i'll send it. Lots of vintage stuff and odd randomness. 1 more available.

Foam alphabet stamps - Making Memories' "gabby" font. 33 stamps, with largest letters being about 1.5 inches tall.

book "Recipes for Surfaces: Decorative Paint Finishes Made Simple", by Mindy Drucker and Pierre Finklestein. It's a big one, 255 pages! http://www.amazon.com/Recipes-Surfaces-Decorative-Finishes-Simple/dp/0671682490/ref=sr_11_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1214287833&sr=11-1

2 yards of vintage cowboy fabric

Several tubes of partially used oil paints, mainly earth tones. Can be used for hand-tinting black-and-white photos, too.

quarter-point items

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!

burgundy felt (craft quality). about 2 yds.

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

Cat toy - 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.

- 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

- 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.

- baggie full of beer/ale bottle caps, not your usual kegger brands

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

thank you for shopping!

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


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: ONLY PINK LEFT!!!. One pair of socks for three points.

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, 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.


Chunky Owl Steampunk Necklace - (2)
Pewter plated owl pendant. Comes with a medium-chunky antiqued silver necklace. Please specify Owl Necklace #1 or Owl Necklace #2.

Owl Necklace #1
Has a vintage watchface that has a gorgeous patina to it.

Steampunk Bee Brooch - (2)
Vintage watch movement with a purple Swarovski rhinestone attached.

Steampunk Butterfly Brooch - (2)
Vintage watch movement with rubies!!!

Steampunk Whale Brooch - (2)
Vintage watch movement with teal swarovski rhinestone.

Mother and Child Cameo Necklace - (2)
Very intricate cameo with lots of detail. I'll attach a jump ring and an antiqued silver necklace before mailing.

Flower Sprite Cameo Necklace - (2)
Very intricate cameo with lots of detail. I'll attach a jump ring and an antiqued gold necklace before mailing.

Chunky Steampunk Butterfly Necklace - (2)
OOAK necklace made with vintage watch parts.

Vintage Watch Movement Ring - (2)
Made with a vintage watch movement. Adjustable silver-plated band. Lots of rubies visible in this beauty.

Blue Flower Cameo Ring - (2)

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

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.


Vintage Watch Face rings - (1)
Please specify by number when claiming - left to right, top to bottom. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11

Owl ring - (1)
Adjustable silver plated ring with jasper stone. Please specify by number. Left to right, top to bottom - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

Peru Doors notecards - (1)
Set of six 5"x7" white notecards with envelopes. The photos are professionally printed and are 4"x6". Great for you or for a gift! (It's been cloudy for 3 days, this is the best photo I could get. The notecards are incredibly vibrant and glossy in real life.)

Filigree pendant with vintage watch movement - (1)
The watch movement is a teeny, tiny bit off level on this piece, so it's just one point. Comes with an antiqued gold necklace.

Antique Guns Earrings - (1)

Mini-bookmarks - (1) each
Bookmarks are 3.5" tall, so they're great for both soft- and hardcover books. Contain Swarovski crystals for some sparkle! 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.

Bat, Gecko


Butterfly Memory Bracelet - (1)

Happy Buddha memory bracelet - (1)


Latch-hook panels - (0.5)
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 2 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"

Here Piggy Piggy Pendant - (0.5)
Amber tone pendant with a cute little piggy on it - oink! 

Noro Bracelet - (0.5)
Handknit bracelet with gold-toned toggle made out of Noro's Daria yarn. Click on the photos to see the cool texture of the yarn. Inspired by myklia's post here on Craftster.

Thoughts Journal - (0.5)

Supply Items

Bernat Killarney Cream Yarn - (0.5) per skein
45% cotton, 44% acrylic, 11% linen. 1.75oz/50gr. Four skeins available (buy all four for two points and I'll throw in the partial skein for free). Yummy, squishy soft yarn that is thick-n-thin. Made in Belgium, and I think this may be a vintage (1970s or 1980s) yarn.
