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

Check out new price reductions! Also, get a free fabric keychain with purchase!

Reversible keychains- FREE WITH PURCHASE (while supplies last)!
These are acrylic keychains with fun designs on each side. All the incerpts are fabric except the maps. The second picture shows the reverse side of the keychains in the first picture. Chose Row 1 or 2, then A,B,C, or D  (left to right). (The first map is of Spain and Portugal and the second map keychain is parts of the Middle East).

the flipsides (the bottom left is brown, not black)

Close up

1/4 point items:

Tie-dyed shirt- .25
This was an experiment. Super soft Old Navy Perfect fit tee, size medium. It's a very flattering cut...scoop neck and slightly poofy miny sleeves

1/2 point items:

Rope Lantern earrings -.5
These are super fun. Each one is about the size of a kumquat.(Gunmetal hooks)

Heart Earrings -.5
These turned out so nicely. The hearts have a nice heft to them and are salvaged from a necklace I got at a department store. Each heart is about the size of a dime.

Stacked cube earrings -.5
These are on gunmetal earhooks (refers to the color, not the content of the metal  Wink)

Smokey Blue Flower Earrings - .5

1 Point Items

Needlebooks- 1 point each

Here is a group shot. Each one has four felt pages for all your needle-holding needs. Some have an elastic closure and some have ribbons to tie them closed. All are lined with a coordinating fabric that is different from the front. Click on the small pictures to see a close up and the interior fabrics. Bears, Woodland Creatures on Khaki, Red Dots, and Woodland Creatures on Pink have all been spoken for.


Chifunky Pincushion-1
Made from an Anthropologie egg cup and vintage fabric. Super cute and last one available!

Watering can pincushin- 1 point
Supercute! About the size of a small tea cup. Comes with the pictured pins.

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

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

Silver Heart Necklace -2
The heart pendant is real silver (it was given to me years ago on a chain by an old boyfriend...but now it is polished, paired with pink, and ready for a new life Smiley) It really turned out beautifully and would make a gorgeous gift. The heart is framed by four Swarkovski crystals. Lobster claw closure. If it's for a gift, let me know and I will make the packaging extra special.

(BTW, that is not a weird spot on the heart. It's just the way the light is hitting the etchings. You can see the etchings on the heart better in some of the thumbnails.)

More shots:

Wooden Bracelet with Vintage Ribbon Trim- 2

Additional View:

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

3 Point Items

Jar of Whimsies - 3 points
This is bursting with fun stuff. Guaranteed not to disappoint!!!!! Among the many, many goodies are a new wooden stamp, a necklace, a cool glass bead from Venice, a teddy bear, miniature flower pots, tiny handmade items by fellow Craftsters, one of my reversible keychains, vintage ribbon, chip beads, a felted flower barret, and many more surprises!

Note: If this is claimed by someone outside of the US, I will put the items in something plastic instead of the glass jar to cut down on shipping, but I'll throw in a few extra whimsies to make up the difference Smiley

So you can see all 360 degrees:

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.


Beads- .5 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.

Trims- 2 points for lot
Most of these are over one yard and some are two yards. In this lot there are two unopened packages, including a daisy lace trim and a velvet trim embellished with beads. The leather cords are salvaged from various things so they are not as long.

Pottery tools-1 pt.for all
These are the tools I used for my ceramics classes so they are not new but they are in great shape and are everything you need to get started throwing pottery.

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!!

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:

Pending: 3
Current: 1

Small pieces of felted wool in fallish colors (mustard yellow, subdued green)(I have orange now thanks to PtarmicWumpus!)  Smiley
Handcarved rubber stamps

Large purses
Delicate/lightweight scarves that I can wear with dressy clothes

Tobacco free home (we do heat with wood stove in the winter).
In/Out short hair dogs & cat.

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

Stress Relief NEW! 04/06/09
Ground calendula petals inside with a sprinkling of petals on the top.
quiets the mind and invigorates the spirit!
Calming blend of Sage & Lavender with just a touch of Peppermint and Star Anise.

Citrus Basil  NEW! 04/06/09
Citrusy and floral all in one.  My current personal favorite.

Cucumber Melon  NEW! 04/06/09
This screams SUMMER!!

Lavender Vanilla    
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.

BP#2 (2): Total 82 yards
35 yards light blues & light purples
47 yards Cranberry

gavagai's swap shop is still


Burger ring, 2 points


Adjustable finger ring (silver plated) with a polymer clay hamburger with fries on a blue china plate.

Nestlaces (clickable thumbnails), 2 points each

Gemstone eggs in a silver plated nest. The nests are about 1 1/4" across. Comes with a silver plated chain.

Yellow egg nestlace. Yellow jade?

Turquoise egg nestlace. I think the "eggs" are green aventurine.

Fused glass pendants (clickable thumbnails), 2 points each

These are newly made by me and are entirely made of glass. All of these reflect light beautifully! When you claim a piece you have the choice of me adding either a sterling silver bail and a waxed cotton cord to make a necklace or a silver plated ring base to wear the piece as a finger ring. It is hard to take good pictures of these, but here is my best try so far...

Black and color. It was hard to get a picture without strange reflections. This piece is solid shiny black all around and in the middle lots of colours covered with transparent glass. (1 1/8" x 1 3/8")

Space invader! Looks dirty around where the reflection is, but has been cleaned now.  Smiley (1" x 1 1/4")

Transparent blue with black lines and dichro. Lovely piece!

Purple&green with black contrast. Not a very big piece, about 1" corner to corner.

Blue cross with dichro, about 2" high.

Glass heart! Scattered colours and some beautiful dichro (the shimmering part).

needle felting kit, 2 points

This includes:
1 foam pad to use as a base when felting (approximately 7"x7", will measure...)

1 felting needle with plastic cover/case and plastic "head" for better grip.

Instructions and tips!

about 40 grams/1.5 ounces of carded wool of your choice:
 -"regular" sheeps wool in many different colours
 - merino wool in many different colours (softer but might be slightly more difficult to felt, hard to say, a matter of personal taste really, why not try both!)
 - natural wool of different breeds, different colours, some curly, you can even have some camel fleece in there (some of the natural wool is much harder to felt, since it's not as processed, discuss with me and I would recommend somehow mixing coloured and natural).

Sample kit (but you will have a chance to customize it):

Below are just a few colour examples from my stash:

Deluxe needle felting kit, 3 points

Same as above, but for this kit you may also choose either a wool handbag (felted by hand) or a flat wool piece (also felted by hand). You can choose from colors below. These are for you to decorate with needle felting. Handbag measures approximately 8 1/2" x 6" and has a zipper and lining. Manufacturer says that you can needle felt on the bag without removing the lining, but I noticed that there will then be tiny little marks in the lining from the felting needle (it is still fine to use it though!), so (if you are as picky as me  Wink) you might want to loosen the lining from the bag a bit so that you can insert a small foam pad (included) while needle felting. The lining can then easily be sewn back by hand. The felted wool piece is about 17" x 12".

temaris, 2 points

The below are my own improvised designs based on the ancient Japanese art of temari, which translated into English means "hand ball". The ball itself in these cases has a base consisting of a plastic bag (since temari is all about recycling) and round it is layers of hand wound yarn and thread to shape the ball and make the decorative surface. The embroidery is made with cotton perle. All handmade by me. Choice of blue ball (very dark blue IRL) or green. Egg cup/temari stand and image editor frames not included.  Cheesy

bags, 2 points each

The bags I make are of different sizes. I always write approximate size next to the descriptions (measured laying flat). Make sure to read!

The lacybag. Shoulderbag. Not a very sturdy kind of bag (as you can see from photo), but good looking.  Grin I like how this one turned out. It's patchwork and added vintage lace. The lining has a subtle flower pattern. Measures about 15"x13".

JoAnn's Eclectic Wonderland is CLOSED
I WILL RETURN, MOST LIKELY, IN JULY (but as always, am down for personal swaps in the meantime - just cant keep up this much right now!)

I am JoAnn, in Tyler, Texas and happy to be here!  I have cats and dogs all taking an extended vacation at their grandparents (while we rent in a place that wouldnt allow pets!)  Therefore, most of what I have has NOT been exposed to pet hair, but if anything in particular has (some of the supplies I think have been), I will mention it.

Crafted Items:


3 points

Custom Shoes...
I've done a few different shoes here on Craftster and you can see some on my profile.  I can do virtually any cartoon character, comic book character, other various drawings (Harry Potter crests, etc.)  Just shoot me a PM *ahead of time* and I can let you know if I can do it and if I can get your shoe size (I currently have sizes 8 and 9 and these run about 1/4-1/2 a size small)!  I can get more easily, but may have to order them, so PM me as soon as you know you'd like some!  These ones here below are just an example…

2 points

Custom red kids shirt, size 10/12
This is for a short sleeved red t-shirt for a child size 10/12.  I have it, but haven’t taken a picture yet, but can do any of the things I mentioned I can do for shoes!

Custom wood tray
This is a smaller-size wood tray I can paint for your with a character, names and dates (like weddings or anniversaries), etc.

Custom Flower Drawer
This can be custom painted with virtually any color you like, with a name on the drawer, etc.  Great for a little girl’s room!

Fully Crafted Items:

2 Point

Owl Picture Frame – Based on A. Henry fabric, this frame is one of my faves and come with glass, although I took it out for the picture!

Cupcake Shirt – Adult size Large and just waiting for a cupcake fan!

1 Point Items:

Button bouquets - These come in a set of 10 stems.  Actual bouquets will vary, but I try to keep them as bright and colorful as possible!

Cherry Blossom Wineglasses

Pink and Green Picture Frame:  This one has a plastic sheet for over the picture (rather than glass).  Its simple and far from perfect, but cute! (The green you see on the white is on the base, which will be covered up by the picture!)


2 Points:

Black fabric – 2 ½ yards of a sturdy black fabric (I am an idiot and genuinely do not know what fabric this is).  It has just a very slight stretch.  (Animal exposed)

Polka dot fabric – Im not sure of the yardage, but probably around 2 or so.   It’s a polyester fabric with a nice silky feel.  (Animal exposed)

Christmas Ornaments – Set of three packages, two ornaments in each and all packages are different from each other and mostly have santas and angels and the like.
