Pick One

Grape Pendant with spring green ribbon

Set of two UV (black light) reactive paintings
Paintings are 4" square on gallery wrapped canvases.  Paintings are black light reactive, you can see both paintings in both sets of lighting conditions below.  They are perfectly square canvases, but the angle I took the photos makes them look out of proportion.
(normal lighting conditions)

(black light conditions)

Red Bird Ornament
This red guy is available.  However, I have lots of felt colors so if you wanted one in a different color I can make another one.  But it has to be a color I already have in my stash, so feel free to PM me if you want to check first.  Smiley

Lady Bug Fabric
Cotton fabric.  Background is a true red but I can't get the shade to show accurately on my screen.  It's pretty close.  Uncut fabric measuring 44" x 37".

Fabric Lot
cotton fabric.  All 3 are fat quarter sized.  The blue and the brown are uncut, but the cat fabric is missing a corner of roughly 11" x 5.5".

Candy Corn Beads
Glass lampwork beads.  Hole goes from top to bottom.

I claim jewelry making supplies! Will PM about what I am most interested in.

Pick 1

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. Tote bag like. 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".

NEW Extraordinary taggies, pick one for a claim! NEW

These are so much fun for babies to fiddle with. I have tried to mix lots of different materials and features in every taggie. They are all around 10" x 10", but size varies a bit.

Four seasons taggie! All four seasons are represented by its own cotton fabric piece in this patchwork taggie. Back side is a dark green courderoy fabric, fun to play with.

Denim frogs! This taggie is made from the leg of a pair of jeans. If you lift the flap there are soft flannel frogs hiding! Backside is made of soft dark green velour (is there a better word in English?)

Jeans pocket taggie! Here we have the back pocket from a pair of jeans. You can open and use the pocket that is closed with velcro (fun to play with for little hands). Happy flannel faces on the back.

Rainbow taggie! (dust will be removed.) Patchwork rainbow with a piece of extremely soft light blue fabric in the middle. So soft and nice to feel. Back of taggie is made all in the soft blue fabric.

Fabric piece, a bit sturdier/thicker cotton. Autumny leaves. About 60" x 44". The fabric has a cut in it from one side about 6" into the fabric. Picture shows a bit less than half of the fabric.

...or pick 2!

50 used older Swedish stamps. There might be a couple of duplicates in there. (The one at the bottom left is of a woman making bobbin lace by the way.) 50 stamps is 1/2 claim.

10 big cats on big stamps. From all over the world! 10 big stamps is 1/2 claim.

Cross stitch kits to make angels with ribbons and all sort of stuff. 1/2 claim per kit!

Traditional Swedish glass troll, about 2" tall, heavy and could be used as a paper weight. It has an inscription on the back, apparently some kind of SAAB commercial message, but that is only visible from the back (image 3). Really difficult to get a good picture of this one.

Retro looking cotton fabric with big flowers, bursting with colour. You get about 60" x 18" for half a claim.

A mouse pad!  Cheesy Just a plain simple red mouse pad. I bought these some time ago and meant to do something crafty with them (some kind of frames or something), but never really got around to it. A few of them available if you want to claim two.


Stretchable book covers! Claimed these in some swap, but haven't used since, so they will have to go (have to get rid of stuff!). Never opened. 1/2 claim each.

Pick 4 of these
or 2 plus one of the "pick 2" items above!

These are bookmarks I guess, made of thick paper (cardboard?). They are made up of two eggs that can be taken out (perforated edges) and used for decoration or crafting. The text on the back says "Have a hard boiled easter!" in Swedish. You can see both sides of the bookmark above. Make sure to look closely at the eggs! (Sorry about the poor picture quality, especially on the egg on the right, looks much smoother in reality.) 1 bookmark is 1/4 claim.

Set of four big American Disney stamps (used). Great condition! 4 big stamps is 1/4 claim.

20 Japanese stamps, used on paper. Beautiful! Hello Kitty, landscapes and more... 20 beautiful stamps is 1/4 claim.

Below are Swedish stamp booklet covers, i.e. the stamps are taken out, but some of the covers are really nice, I think. Maybe someone could use them for some kind of paper art. Size approximately 2 1/2" x 6" (when unfolded like below). Pick 8 for 1/2 claim (or 4 for 1/4 claim) or all of them for 1 claim.

Alrighty, I'm going to claim gavagai's 50 Swedish stamps, the egg bookmarks (so bizarre!), and the Japanese stamps.

Claims Allowed (Outstanding):3
Claims made so far: 2
Sendouts Not Sent:1
Sendouts Sent:0
Sendouts in Transit:0
Sendouts Received:0

I have a dog, and I'm fairly fuzzy and moving furniture around right now, so pardon stray hairs...

My list...

Claim one of these:

Vinyl record notebook - standard LP sized record cut down to this size. I have different kinds of paper and can fill it up however you like.

crocheted kerchief beautifully made by farmgirljane. I absolutely love it but somehow the shape of my head and my copious large hair don't allow it to sit right when I'm wearing it.

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.

- A huge amount of paper/ephemera for papercrafting. Like a USPS flat rate box full of it. Mainly vintage, and will customize package to your liking.

cut and marked quilt pieces for a double wedding ring pattern quilt. - A swap-meet find. Vintage fabric in various colors and prints, with the original templates in case you want to substitute some of the pieces with different fabric. I'm hand-washing all of it before sending.

adhesive-backed magnet pack - several for making magnetic business cards, and 2 rolls for making a long magnetic strip, or making magnetic poetry. The bigger one is about an inch wide, and the other a little thinner.

Foam alphabet stamps - Making Memories' "gabby" font. upper and lower case with some punctuation marks, and largest letters are about 1.5 inches tall. Image is here:

Or claim 2 of these:

approx 1 yd of Wonder Under with instructions

vintage cake toppers - warning, includes 2 scary clowns! All the strange plastic goodies in the picture except the ruler.

Small green eyelets and eyelet extras - includes different colors of that butterfly eyelet, and a bunch of those wreaths (which are made to go with the green eyelets) and different colors of "Boo!" -- these are kept in place on a page by attaching an eyelet through the middle hole.

Adhesive 1-inch bar pin backs value pack. Approx 50 remaining in the package.

Several tubes, partially used, of oil paints. Includes the ones in the image plus a few others that are almost empty.
Raw umber, burnt sienna, Naples yellow hue, flesh tint, cadmium red, raw sienna, zinc white, burnt umber, ultramarine

set of 5 molded crayons from scrap-crayons:

Barbie pasties - I don't have a decent picture of them, but you get the idea. 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.

- x-stitch Amelia Earhart quote made by Craftster kiden2, with fabric backing/border

- days of the week stitckers in 3 languages, apparently used in food service industry? Might be good in a daily journal

Or, claim 3 of these:

- bandage rubber stamp

-burgundy felt (craft quality). about 2 yds

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.

Andy Warhol magnet - received in a Craftster swap (not handmade), about the size of a business card. If you want, I'll include a similarly cheeky magnet of the same size that has a group of 50s housewives and says, "Don't tell the guys, but we RUN this fuckin place". Just let me know.  Smiley

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. Maybe good for resin?

Dover book - "Mosaic and Tesselated Patterns, and How to Create Them". 64 pages

Dover book - "Isometric Perspective Designs, and How to Create Them". 52 pages

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

And, take any of these items FREE! --
- 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.

- 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. Something this ugly-as-sin is begging for a new life.  Cheesy

- 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.

- VERY old peel-off erasers for "drafting film" (I don't know what that is)--they are so old they're stuck together! Probably 5 of them in the box.

- baggie full of at least 20 beer/ale bottle caps, all different varieties and not your standard kegger brands

- baggie full of dried lavender buds, enough for several sachets
