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.  To make a sale you may need to adjust your prices or offer new crafted items/supplies.
-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 you have signed up/opened shop for the next round AND the new round is open in your profile. If any prior 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.
-You are responsible for signing up for the next round by the 20th of the month if you have under 3 points.  If we have not heard from you by then, temporary negative feedback will be given.

-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 (this includes NOT sending in a signup before the end of the signup period) with less than 3 points and/or not sending claims made to you.  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.  Please check you're outgoing pm's to ensure that everyone has received a copy!!!!!!
-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, allergy info..

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: alteredmommylapoliloves2experimentperson you are claiming from
Subject: STS 28 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 moose eating my yard 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>>

person you are claiming from 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, please write the claim beside the swapper names (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!!!

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

All crafted items come from a non-smoking household with one lovely beagle.

Crafted Items


Gorgeous turquoise stones with copper findings. Approximately 18" long.

Flying Steampunk Locket - (3)
The locket opens up and has two circles inside where you can add your own photos.

Chunky Green Ring - (3)
Adjustable band, most comfortable for sizes 7 and up. Much more sparkly in real life.

Chunky Gold Bracelet - (3)
I can get measurements if anyone is interested, but this does fit my wrist and I have probably average to slightly-larger-than-average wrists. It has a closed-clasp-hinged thingie in the back (that you can't see in the photo).

Slender Gold Bracelet - (3)
I can get measurements if anyone is interested, but this does fit my wrist and I have probably average to slightly-larger-than-average wrists. It has an open back (as seen in the photo), so it is slightly adjustable.


Jasper Necklace - (2)
So much more beautiful than the photos show. Approximately 16" long. (That's a quarter in the photo to give you an idea of the size of the stones.) It doesn't have a weird kink in it, I had a hard time keeping it flat when taking my own picture.

Stone Necklace - (2)

Chunky Tuna Necklace - (2)
This is a big necklace, not for the faint of heart. I'll double-check measurements, but this fish is about as long as my hand.

Gold Cross Necklace - (2)

Silver Cross Necklace - (2)

Steampunk Rings - (2)
All rings are adjustable. I can size it for you if you include your ring size in your pm, otherwise you can easily adjust it yourself.
Ring #1

Ring #3

Ring #4

Ring #5

Ring #6

Ring #7

Ring #8

Ring #9

Ring #10

Ring #12

Swarovsky Rings - (2)
Adjustable ring bases with sparkly swarovsky crystals. Please claim by color.



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.


Vintage Typewriter Key Pendant - (1)
Add your own necklace through the sterling silver bail, or claim a delicate, 16" sterling silver necklace from me for an additional 1 point. Please specify which pendant you would like by symbol/letter/number. 7, T and backspace taken!


Filigree pendant with vintage watch movement - (0.5)
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.

Mini-bookmarks - (0.5) 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


Duck Earrings - (0.5)
Adorable in person, but the penny stays with me.

Purple Earrings - (0.5)

Supply Items


OnLine Supersocke Sock Yarn - Green - (2)
100g/400m - superwash

Hello! I'm a wife of 3 years and we have 7, 4 legged, children. They are 1 giant yellow dog, 4 crazy cats, and 2 silly ferrets. The ferrets are caged for their own safety. The dog is in the craft room but in a kennel and all craft items are kept in plastic or out of reach. Cat hair is pretty common but I am totally willing to wash/lint roll, and items you claim. We do not smoke.
(unless I set a small toaster oven fire. It's been known to happen.)
I live in the Southern part of the USA.

3 Point Items:
None at the moment

2 Point Items:
Custom Messenger bag

Bag measures approx: 3 inches thick at the gusset, 7-10 inches deep, 12 inches wide at mouth, 15 inches wide at base. I can directly measure the pattern if you want exact measurements.
I can make your bag in up to 4 colors. I can also make the strap longer or shorter. You bag will have a bit different design for the tab the swivel snap is attached to.
Info I need when you claim:
Color of front:
Color of back/flap:
lining color:
Strap front color:
Strap back color:
closure tab color:
If yes 1 large or 2 small:
Length of strap:

If you are looking for a particular color scheme check out my photobucket of my fabric stash:
If you are looking for a solid I don't have just let me know I can easily acquire it. Smiley

Marisol mouse:
Knit with acrylic yarns. Body is simply soft and pink bits are harrahs yarn. Smiley My first "in the round" project! It will come with a purple ribbon aorund it's neck. Smiley

Amigurumi Alpaca or horse
I can make these in any solid color.

specify color desired. Give me 2 color choices in case I don't have the first choice on hand.

Custom beaded/felt cuff
Can be made in most simple designs. I just need the following info:
Wrist measurement:
Design: (please limit to 3 colors, if you want more than that pm me and we'll discuss it)


1 Point Items:

Mystery bag of scrap fabric!
Small sandwich bag of scraps left over from various projects. I toss all my scraps in a box and it's time to purge the box. They are varying in types but mostly cotton and alova suede. Scraps range from 1/2 inch -4 inches in width and length. Most are at least 1/2 inch in some area. I'll make sure to throw a few larger piece in the bag so you get some good scraps!
Great for crazy quilting!

Beaded Fish/Trilobite Necklace
Necklace was made as an experiment and the original pendant didn't match. However this one looks really neato! It's supposed to be a fish but it's more like a trilobite to me. I'll let you decide what it is:

The metal is some unknown substance so if you are allergic this is probably not the necklace for you.

Little Ditty Bag

Basics: I own a smoke-free home near Chicago, IL (USA).

[click on any picture to see a REALLY HUGE version...]

Beaded Chapsticks - 2 points

Description: Made by me using only thread and Delica beads. They are designed to slide on a standard "Chapstick" brand lip balm tube (one is included). The majority of patterns are my own creation, although some are inspired by photos of things others have done.  They take about the duration of a movie (1.5-2 hours) to complete.  They are made from exclusively little glass beads and a fine nylon thread.  I try to make sure that knots are secure, and I use a "locking" stitch on every other row, so if the thread breaks, you don't lose the whole thing.  I have one in my purse.  Its been in there for more than 5 years now, without any repairs.  The beads look somewhat worn, and one or two beads have broken and are missing.  People have informed me that dropping them on concrete will, indeed, break the beads, and wear on the top and bottom (where the threads are visible) will cause the thread to break.

FINALLY!!  Here are pictures of each chapstick available.  Click on the pictures for larger view. Claim by group letter (A, B or C) then number. (beaded chapstick A-12 (2 points))  X instead of a number means already claimed. (Feel free to add words like "the green dragon")

Group A:  

Group B:

Group C:

Crochet Turtles - 1 Point

Description: Crocheted by me using the free "Tiny Striped Turtle" pattern from Crochetville.  They are about 4 inches from nose to tail.

Turtle Parade!  


   * Aqua with darker sparkly aqua stripes - front row, #2 - claim as "aqua turtle (1)"
   * Yellow with sparkly black stripes - back row, #1 - claim as "yellow turtle (1)"
   * Navy with sparkly pink stripes - front row, #7 (last) - claim as "navy turtle (1)"
   * Plum Wine with sparkly black stripes - front row, #3 - claim as "wine/black turtle (1)"
   * Rose Violet with sparkly pink stripes - first row, #1 - claim as "rose/pink turtle (1)"
   * Sage (green) with sparkly black stripes - first row, #5 - claim as "green turtle (1)"
   * Navy Blue with sparkly white stripes - back row, #5 - claim as "navy/white turtle (1)"

Plum Wine and Rose Violet are the color names from the Simply Soft yarn that I used.  I would have used dusty rose instead of plum wine.

Crochet Dragons - 2 Points

Description: Crocheted by me using the free "Baby Snow Dragon" pattern from Crochetville.  There are 3 basic sizes.  Large (bulky weight yarns) are about 8 inches tall, medium (worsted weight yarns) are about 6 inches tall, and the small ones (baby yarns) are about 5 inches tall.

Size Comparison So Cute

Glamour Shot I solemnly swear that I am up to no good....


   * Medium Green Dragon made with bamboo yarn - - Claim as green bamboo dragon (2)
   * Large Multicolored Dragon in Pink, purple, yellow, and blue - - Claim as "large multi dragon (2)"
   * Medium Hot Pink Dragon (an exceptionally soft yarn) - - Claim as "medium hot pink dragon (2)"
   * Medium Orange Dragon with green eyes and whiskers (an exceptionally soft yarn) - - Claim as "medium orange dragon (2)"
   * Sad Little Red sparkly Dragon - - Claim as "small red dragon (2)"
   * Medium Rose dragon - Claim as "medium rose dragon (2)"   
   * Small purple with white fluff dragon - Claim as "small purple dragon (2)"   
   * Small yellow/multi dragon mostly yellow with pink and purple - Claim as "small yellow/multi dragon (2)"
   * Small yellow dragon Claim as "small just yellow dragon (2)"

Beaded Witch Earrings - 2 Points

Please claim as "<color> Witch Earrings (2)"

Description: Made only from beads and thread with my own paws.  Each little witch is different.  Most have red and white stockings, black shoes, a little broom, pearl heads, and surgical steel hooks.  Several have wooden beads for heads.  The yellow ones are "princesses", and carry a magic wand instead of a little broom.  The two points includes a "matching pair", meaning a witch with a left-facing broom, and a right-facing broom.  (The color names are from the tubes of beads that I use for these)

Mob Shot

Dark Green Matte (have 1 pair available)

Medium Blue Luster (have 1 pair available)

Transparent Red (have 2 pair available)

Little Monster Purses - 3 Points

Please claim as "<color> Monster Purse (3)"

Description: Each little purse is hand made by me from a pattern of my own design.  The purse is about 7 inches from side to side. I made the original of this purse for my now 5 year old daughter.  Each purse if fully lined, has a Velcro closure, and the strap is firmly sewn into place.  The lining fabrics vary, but most are flannel. The teeth and eyes are vinyl fabric.  The eyes are satin stitched into place, and the "glint" in each eye is embroidered on.  They come in a variety of colors.

Here is a picture of the inside of one:

All items will be making their way to you from Southern California!
Please make your claims as full points.  All small thumbnails should be clickable links.
Thanks for checking out my shop!

Please feel free to submit a request for a custom order and I'll see what I can do!

2 Point Items

Bohemian Dream Bag (3) (2)
This was knit by me and then lined with a cotton fabric.  It's a fun and unique medium sized purse.

Men's Fingerless Mitts (2)
I knit these up using Paton's SWS and while I find that yarn to be lovely and soft, my husband found the yarn to be itchy so he can't wear them.  Perfect for the guy in your life who doesn't have sensitive hands.  Careful...these will felt and should be handwashed gently!

Raspberry Lemonade Yarn (2)
This is yarn recycled from a thrift store sweater that I then dyed using Kool Aid.  Fiber content is 35% Wool / 35% Acrylic / 30% Cotton.  It's 100 yards and is approx DK/Worsted weight.  There is one knot in the skein.

1 Point Items

5"x7" Original Photography (matted to 8"x10") (2) (1)
These are all my original photographs taken from my portfolio.  I have matted these 5"x7" prints so they are ready for framing.  The mats are signed by me.  Please specify the title of the print in your claim.

Tequila SunsetThe Guide
Standing Tall
Childhood MemoriesLeft Behind

Baby Blanket w/ Crochet Edging (1)
This is the same style as the Little Bug Blanket that I had listed.  It's a teal fleece baby blanket that I added a scalloped crochet edging to in cream acrylic yarn.  It measures 30"x30".

Pillar Candle Base (1) (U.S. claim only please - these are kind of heavy)
These were made using marbles from the centerpieces of my wedding, fixed onto glass candle bases.  You have the choice of frosted green marbles or clear green marbles (candle pictured here not included!).  Please specify frosted or clear in your claim.

Scented Eye Pillows (1)
Inside of each pillow is rice, lightly scented with essential oils.  These can also be used either hot or cold.  For heat therapy, pop the pillow in the microwave for 20-30 seconds.  For cold therapy, place the pillow in a sealed bag and leave in the fridge or freezer until chilled.  Please specify blue, green or yellow in your claim.

0.5 Point Items
Please redeem in full points.  Thanks!

Crochet Baby Booties (0.5)
These are adorably cute and I give them to friends as baby shower gifts all the time.  I have an excess inventory though!  Please specify color in your claim.  Black and green pairs are gone!

Fuzzy Scarf (0.5)
Knit up with fun fur with large needles to give a nice soft and fuzzy scarf.  The scarves were designed to be shorter but with a lot of stretch due to the open stitch.  Please specify lavender or grey stripes in your claim

Golden Dangle Earrings (0.5)
I've been playing with learning wire wrapping and this is my prototype pair!  They are glass beads on gold wire - very cute and delicate.  

Rustled Up Socks Knitting Pattern (1) (0.5)
I designed this sock pattern in the fall, but the lacy leaf design would be a great spring/summer sock too!  This is for a pdf copy of the pattern that would be sent to you via e-mail.

0.25 Point Items
Please redeem in full points.  Thanks!

Fuzzy Pouch (0.25)
This fuzzy pouch was knit using a white acrylic yarn and some self-striping fun fur.  It's lined and has a button closure.  My husband's baby sister uses the one I made her for the tooth fairy!   Cheesy

Photo Notecards (0.5) (0.25)
These are photo notecards that I bought as a big lot at a garage sale.  I can't quite date them, but they're all hand-mounted and the photos are by a local (Los Angeles) photographer.  Each claim is for 2 complimentary cards with matching envelopes.  Please specify the title of the cards in your claim.  

Snowy ViewsForests
Silhouette LandscapesUmbrellas

Points noted next to items.  Please redeem in full points.  Thanks!

Mill End Roving (2) for 3oz
When I was first learning to spin, I ordered 3lbs of the brown tone mill end roving from Sheep Shed Studio.  I've still got a ton and would love to destash some so I can buy other roving!  I have over a lb available.  There is mohair in this, but I've found that it's pretty easy to separate.  The colors remind me of smores!

Mystery Yarn (0.25 pts)
I'm not sure where I got this or what exactly the type of yarn is.  Would probably work best for home decor type items.

2 Sailor Girl Vintage Notecards (0.25 pts)
Sweet image of a sailor girl with a nautical line-drawing behind her.  This is for 2 blank notecards with envelopes.  Perfect for paper crafting - would make a really cute notebook or scrapbook page theme.

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

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

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.

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

1/2 point items:

Turtle Needlebook- .5

Curry Needlebook- .5

Girls Hot Dog Shirt-.5 REDUCED
This is a new pale pink American Apparel Classic Girl Shirt size M/OS (14 inches across chest when laying flat)
It looks like it would fit a preteen girl or a very thin adult.
Has an iron-on decal of a hot dog and says "hot diggity dog." Decal directions said it is dryer-safe but I would still hang to dry to be extra cautious.

Crib Queen Baby Sweatshirt -.5 REDUCED
This is a thrifted sweatshirt that says 6/9 months but I think it has shrunk significantly because it looks much small than that to me. It is almost 12 inches across under the arms and about 11.5 inches from neck to hem. Because of the iron-on words, this one should not be put in the dryer.

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

1 Point Items

Pen Holders - 1 point each
Have a brilliant thought but can't find your pen? Ready to doodle in your journal and there is no pencil to be found? Here is the cute and functional solution! I have not sewn the elastic in yet, so if you have a specific journal/book you would like it to fit, just let me know and I can make it extra long or extra short. If you don't specify, I will just make it the standard size (need to go measure so I can list specifics).

Birds and Trees:

Mrs. Darcy:

The Sophisticate:

Stone River:

Woodland Creatures 2:

Deer 1:

Deer 2:

Here is what they look like inside the cover.

Vintage Puppy Hanky-1
This is vintage through and through. The handkerchief is vintage (a pale mauve color with white edging) and the embroidery pattern that I used was also vintage.

Covered button thumbtacks- 1 point per set- only 1 set available
Gift ready...Each set comes on a cute gift tag with a piece of corkboard

Covered button barrettes- Green flower set - 1 point
Gift ready...comes on a card and with a little brown envelope

Covered button barrettes- Frogs- 1 point

T-shirt yarn - 4 for 1 point REDUCED!!!!!! (you can also just get two for 1/2 point)
These average between 9 to 14 yards and are all made of one long continuous piece. I noticed the yellow ball didn't make its way into one of the other pictures so just let me know if you want it.

Blues (please indicate which one you want by column and row (i.e. R1, C2))

Pinks (please choose pink, maroon, or purple)

Earthy (please choose brown, gray, or beige). The two on each end are beige and are from matching t-shirts. If you are doing a large project and need a third one of the same beige color, I have one that I didn't post because it broke a couple of times when my husband was helping me make the yarn and he pulled too hard. I'll throw it in for whoever can use it.

Black and white and red all over. These are so similar, please just choose red, black or white.
Both of the black ones are really long because they came from XXL t-shirts...probably 13 or 15 yards.

Vintage Pinwheel quilt squares - 1 point for 2
You can have these like they are for 1 point or I can sew them into two pillows (without the stuffing) for one point each.

One for 1 point, Three for 2 points, Five for 3 points
These are made from 100% cotton flannel for ultra softness and absorbancy. The pantyliners have five layers of flannel and the maxi pads have six layers. They will all have snaps on the wings when you receive them (I can only hammer so many at once and keep good relations with my neighbors Smiley). The layout of the fabric may differ, but I do take great care to make sure that as much of the design shows as possible. If you want more than one of the same pad or pantyliner, just pm me because i have multiples of most of them.

Please choose by number: 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 8 , 9 , 10 , 11 , 12 , 13 , 14 , 15 , 16 , 17 , 18 , 19 , 20 , 21 , 22 , 23 , 24 , 25

In case the picture isn't clear the top left is gardening boots, second from left is a cherry print. The bottom right reminds me of like Bazooka gum cartoon strips.

backs (click for bigger image):

backs (click for bigger image):

It's hard to tell, but the frog fabric is kind of blue-green with a pale yellow liner. And the camo actually has dinosaurs on it. #17 and #19 are no longer available.

backs (click for bigger image):


Please choose A , B , C , D , E , F , G , H , I




Cat and Mouse Wreath-1
Handmade but not by me. I picked it up at a yard sale. It's about the size of a large plate.

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

Watering can pincushion -1

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

Pride and Prejudice Sash- 2


Wuthering Heights Sash- 2  ON TENTATIVE HOLD


Silver Heart necklace-2
This is a silver-plated heart with two swarkovski crystals on each side.

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

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!!

Magnifying Glass-2
I got this at the Discover Channel Store a long time ago and never really used it. Click the thumbnails for additional views.

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.

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: 2
Current: 0

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.

Please remember that all periodicals (and other heavy items) are US shipping only!  
3 point items!

2 point items!
huge folder of stickers.  there are TONS:

The Apron Book, or Omiyage.  2 pt each-US only:

Cotton slouchy hat!  nice and slouchy, fits pretty much every head...except maybe super small heads... This is made from hand-dyed organic cottons...really soft!! (2pt)

Navy cotton lace scarf, 2pts.

wool lace scarf, 2pts.

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!
big folder of foriegn print material:

cupcake pincushions-each comes with 15 pearl pins:

nature inspired jangly charm bracelet. 1pts.

Roots and Wings Shop the Swap Shop

Welcome to my shop!  I'm a single mommy to a wonderful 24month old, and I mostly sew, and make things for baby/kids, but I try all kinds of other crafts too!  I live in Florida, and we have a dog.  I might be willing to do customs depending on how busy I am with other orders (links on my profile to all kinds of cool stuff I make) and I also do personal swaps!

My stuff:


Please send me a message if you are interested in anything, and we will work out the points etc.  

1. Hat for Jasmine - this is a reversable sunhat, with the name 'Jasmine' embroidered on it.  (it was a custom order from someone who never paid!   )  Fits up to about 2-3yrs old, depending on head size.  2pts

2. Kimono style shirt.  Its black/white/red tiny flowers.  Ties closed.  Fits 12-18month ish.  2pts

3. Custom glass pendant  I'll use a photo/graphic or whatever that you send me (needs to be sized about 1" square, pendant is slightly smaller than 1").  Does not include a chain.  2pts

4. Bandana bibs - 1/2pt each.  These fit baby and toddler, some are only baby size tho, a few are doll ones!  They fasten w/elastic, great for drool.

5. Seahorse top - hand stenciled w/dye removal, will not fade! 12month size. 1pt

6. Chamilion shirt - I think its 18month size.  Made in the same way as above. 2pts (much more complicated design!)

7. girl blowing bubbles - 12months skorts 2pts

8. paint chip wallet - has pocket for money and slots for cards - 1pt

9. american apparel knock off dress/tunic top - inspired by this post
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=114872.10    25" long, 16" across (laid out)- it streches.  Dk purple sorta color.  (sorry, no pic yet!)   1pt

10. Crayon roll up - holds 8 toddler crayons, or 16 regular ones.  Does not come with cryons b/c its super hot here and they will just melt everywhere.   1pt each
More colors are shown here:  The pink one and the orange one are gone, I might not have your first choice of colors avaible, so please have a back up color choice!

11. Fabric letters - Made to order.  These are sewn and stuffed, great for hanging on the wall, or just playing with, safe for babies too - fun way for kids to learn to spell their name too!    .5pts each, you can get as many as you want
Fabric choices are here:  (be sure to check the additional links to the left, please note that I may run out of your first choice in fabrics!) http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u218/leighi123/crafts/fabric/

12. Soft sole baby shoes - 2pts   Bottom right in pic, about a 3- 9month size - they have squeakers in them!   I also have another pair that is tan coorderoy, in about a 12month size.   I can do customs (but I dont have any more squeaks)

13. Obanu carrier - sunflower print, lightly padded straps, 'scrunches' at the base for small babies/front facing carries.  Better for smaller babies/mommys.


1.   4 skeins of grey acrylic yarn.  I dont do yarn work, so I dont know if these are good ones or not.  2 have the wrappers still on them, the other 2 dont, one might have a little bit used.  2pts for all

2. Glass pendants.  
 1pt each

The one on the far right is gone

3. lots and lots of patterns - mostly womens clothes in sizes bigger than I can wear and more complicated than I care to make.  A few mens patterns, and a few are home decor like pillows or something.  Majority of them are simplicity patterns,  and are 'older' ones.  Some are used.  If you are interested, let me know and I'll get out the box to see what I have.    3 for 1pt

gavagai's swap shop is


Custom orders

I can make custom made stencilled t-shirts (or other stencilled stuff). I would make the stencil myself as you wish it to be. PM me with what you have in mind and we'll discuss it. Here are a few examples of what I made before:




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.

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 get an extra felting needle and 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
