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.

   * 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)"
   * 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.

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)

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:

Colors Available: (When I make them, I make multiples of each color. Click for my current inventory....I will try to keep it fairly up to date.  (I do keep the copy on my laptop pretty accurate, I just have to remember to copy it to the server occasionally)  If you go to that page, you can follow the links to see pictures of the actual monsters that you can decide between.  Each does have its own personality!

....with a side of guacaMolly's shop!

Closed temporarly for holiday chaos!

I live in Oklahoma with a couple kitties, no smoking. Any textile/fabric item has been freshly washed and stored with lavender sachets.

Three Points

Hand knitted and felted colorful checkerboard purse/tote. My mom had gotten this a year or two ago, and although she has a great love of felted things, doesn't use it too often and would rather it go to someone who loves it! Approximately 13" long, 12" wide, 9" handles. Colors are slightly less neon IRL.

One Point

Lavender Sachets-- Two muslin drawstring bags stuffed full of lavender buds. I add lavender EO to the buds, so they are super fragrant.

Northen Lights Earrings in sterling silver or nickel free oxidied brass. I love these around the holidays, they remind me of ornaments. (1)

Crimson Awakening Earrings. Oxidized sterling silver. Ear wires may be slightly different. (1)

Saturn's Rings earrings-- Formed by me, sterling silver, amethyst czech glass beads with an AB finish. (1)

OR choose your Saturn's Rings color! Send me a message for a larger picture or better description. Deep red/cranberry, lavender with a light gold finish, cherry red/pink with an AB finish, deep brown with and AB finish. Faceted and prismatic rondelles, light pink/brown with a light gold finish, vintage clear glass with an AB finish. (1)

Cherry Blossom Earrings. Oxidized sterling silver, glass beads. (1)

.5 Points

Stoneware buttons/pieces for your use. They are unglazed, they look quite nice with an acrylic wash, but the painting/finishing is up to you! The edges were trimmed and smoothed before firing but not after. If a perfectly smooth piece is what you want, you may need to sand a little bit with sand paper, but it is pretty easy. I had to up the contrast in PhotoShop to show the patterns, they are a natural pale almond color. Just to clarify, these were made from stoneware clay and fired in a kiln. The circles are about 1.5"-2"

3 for .5 pt. Claim as patterned diamond (1), circle flower (1), pine branch (1), palm tree (2), angel (1), sheep in circle (1), cat in circle (1), sailboat (2), seahorse (1), heart design .

3 for .5 pt. Claim as circle basketweave (2), impressed lace , leaf and acorn (1), eagle (1), Sage (1), Grapes (1).

3 for .5 pt. Claim as dreamy lady 1-4

4 for .5 pt or 10 for 1 pt. Claim as Butterfly (1), Triangle (6), Heart (4), Sheep (3), Bunny (1)

3 for .5 pt Claim as Weave toggle, short Asian characters toggle, long Asian characters toggle, Swirls toggle or Bark toggle 1 available of each.

Aromatherapy bath salts with shimmery, glittery micah! Great to tuck in with hostess or Christmas gifts, or to unwind and treat yourself at the end of the day. Enough for at least two baths, or 3 foot soaks. I've made them very potent and smelly-good!  Wink Two for .5 pts.
Currently have lavender and lavender mint essential oil fragranced. Contact me to make a custom fragrance order, I have dozens of EO's and FO's.

NEW! Every day, simply must-haves hammered hoops. I really do wear my pair almost every day! Available in oxidized nickel free brass, or antiqued silver with sterling silver ear wires (not shown).

Sunburst earrings, oxidized brass (nickel free) (.5)

A Night in Paris Earrings, oxidized brass (nickel free), or silver colored with sterling ear wires (.5)

Tiny Spoons! Choose green or purple dangly czech glass faceted beads. (.5)

Bobby Pins made by me. Fabric covered buttons, vintage BINGO pieces, paper and mylar covered buttons, and buttons with bows! .5 each pair


Three Points

10 small wristwatch movements with dials/faces 13-18mm. I have a lot of these on hand right now, let me pick the selection! These are pictures of movements that have been previously claimed/sold in my etsy shop. Please let me know if you have a preference of movement shape.

Sent to AsphaltQueen

Two Points

Three vintage ladies' wrist watch cases with faces/dials. There are no movements inside, only the face/dial. These are really pretty, and in really good condition for vintage.

One Point

Slider Top Tins. They are approx 2 inches long, 1 inch wide and 3/8 inch deep. They hold 1/4 ounce. Perfect for lip balm, solid perfume, or even pills, mints, or toothpicks.
These have never been used, but from just being stored in a cardboard box, some of them have light scratches on the lid. Easily covered by a label. A baker's dozen (13) for one point! (1)

Bright animals fabric, about 48x60 in. It seems like a thick muslin, could be used for pillows, curtains, etc. Freshly washed. Nickel shown for pattern size reference. (1)

Embrace the randomness vintage glass vials! You will receive 10 random glass vials, pictures below of what the selection will be chosen from. Most of them are small (24-27mm not including cork), but 1 or 2 larger vials may be included.

Multiple sets available.(1)

Hello! I'm a wife of 3 years and we have 7, 4 legged, children. They are 1 giant yellow dog, 1 small shepherd mix, 3 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:
If you really want a messenger bag and are not on this list Contact me and I'll see how I'm looking schedule wise. It will be 3 points for anyone not on the above list though as supplies prices have gone up. Sad

2 Point Items:
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.

Design: (please limit to 3 colors, if you want more than that pm me and we'll discuss it)

1 Point Items:
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 around it's neck. Smiley

Little Ditty Bag
Teal claimed by aeronberry!!! I can make one more in this color though if someone wants it! Lavender is available. Bags are between 4-6 inches tall and about that wide around the circular bottom.
I can make these taller by doubling yarn for 2 points. Don't see a color you like? PM me and I'll see what's in my stash same point value!

1/2 Point Items

Crocheted  Cuff
Made with acrylic baby fine yarn and crocheted. This has delicate plastic pearl buttons and is really easy to fasten. It's a bit too big for my wrist and my wrist measures 7 inches:

Safety Pin Earrings
Can be made with any solid or 2 colors. The current pair is green/clear. I can also do up to 2 safety pins per earring.
They are permanently closed so you do not risk them popping open and spilling beads everywhere.

Pop-tab Earrings
Made with pop tabs from real soda pop cans. They are extremely lightweight and feel like you aren't wearing anything! Please note that my wire wrapping is much better now than it was then. These are my personal pair and they are about 2 years old. you will receive a brand new pair.

Please note: style of pop tab may vary slightly as they are donated to me and typically brands vary slightly.

Free with claim:
Pick one of these items for free with any claim(please only 1 freebie item per shipping address) Items struck through are claimed sorry!:

Top: poly green fabric(at least 1 yard), blue spandex type mystery fabric(I think there is over 2 yards of this), Pink table runner

I am a 23 year-old knitting fiend, who is in the process of opening her own business. I live in a non-smoking home with my grandmother, who taught me to knit when I was 9. I have no animals, but everything I own is covered in bits of wool from various spinning/knitting projects.

I can do custom knitting upon request, as well as custom spinning
here are some examples of things I can make and have made in the past.

feel free to check out my ravelry for more examples
crabs: 2pt
donuts: 1pt
bats: 1pt

homemade marshmallows:1pt

10-15 (despite my precision piping some of these turned out puny, so you may get extra) , fresh, handmade marshmallows. NO cornsyrup, NO dyes. They have little specks of vanilla bean in them, a soft texture and are not too sweet. They will come packaged for gift-giving unless otherwise requested, in plastic candy bags with ingredients listed. PM me for larger amounts.
Ingredients: gelatin, sugar, powdered sugar, honey, vanilla bean, salt, water
NOW made with local, organic CLOVER honey



coffee-dyed merino2ptNEW!!

hand-dyed by me with some of my favorite espresso. Because of the natural process I used, some grounds may be trapped in the fiber, and the color may bleed when you set the twist on this wool. It smells AWESOME.

Voidwalker Baby-Batts:2 for 1pt, 8 for 3ptNEW!!

hand-carded baby-batts made from wool I got from ptarmic wumpus. They are hand dyed by me, and hand carded with lovely swirls of acid-blue bamboo. yum yum yum!

knit in yellow, striping sock yarn. The fingers are quite small. If you want exact measurements let me know.

peacocky wool ~25yds:.5pt

warm, brown wool plied with thin, peacock feathers. They are spun in tightly, so they won't fall out, and don't stick out too much to give it that "novelty yarn" feel. really subtle opalescence peeks out from a rich brown wool.
