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.


-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 it is your decision whether you will replace the item or have me arrange an angel
-You are responsible for signing up for the next round by the 15th 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 15th 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 CRAFTSTER 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:   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=329454.0

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) in whole numbers only please-while you can list things for .25 or .5, there has to be enough of the items so people can make a whole number claim
-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 29 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)>>
<<claims must be made in whole points, if claiming a number of items listed as fractions of points you need to claim enough to add up to a whole point>>
<<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 about customs and holding claims  <<<<please read!!
Putting items on hold in your shop is up to your own discretion.  Only items that are currently listed in your shop can be put on hold.  Holds should only be accepted when your shop is open, if a shop is closed and you are itching to claim something please pm the shop owner and ask that they let you know when they reopen so you can claim.  Custom items should be posted and reserved on hold for the person you made them for, then they can submit a formal claim.  Please do not ask people via private message to hold items for you until you can submit a proper claim; this is not an acceptable way around the "first properly formatted claim wins the item" rule.  And as always please be reasonable about the time you expect someone to hold an item for you.

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!!!

Smiley  Also, if you  have any color preferences, please let me know.  I'll do my best to oblige, but I may not be able to!  

Red Kettle Dyed Sock Yarn. 1 point.  This is a miserable failure in kettle dyeing that I've been holding onto forever.  The color is blotchy (and not in an awesome kettle-dyed way).  It's a perfect skein to practice dyeing, kettle dyeing, over dyeing, etc.  Fingering weight, approx 420 yards.

Goats Milk Soap, 1.5oz, 0.5 points.  Not the fancy stuff MLF and nesse make, but a nice, goats milk melt and pour base.  Choose from peppermint (essential oil) or bayberry (fragrance oil).

Embellishments, 1/2 point. Mixture of ribbons, stamped images, etc.  Perfect for altered art, scrapbooking, card making, etc!

Scented Cake Soy Wax Melts by AJs Country Cottage on Etsy.  Delicious, highly fragrant and long lasting!  Choose from Mediterranean Fig or Apple Clove, 1 point/each.  

Ten Yard Cuff. 1/2 point/each.  Choose from green (top) or purple (bottom).  


Pictures coming and/or available on request:

6.5oz White Ecospun - 2 points
2.1oz Soysilk - 2 points
3.7oz Fine Mohair (Louet) (white) - 2 points

Upcycled magnet board, made from the bottom of a 8.5 in springform pan (the nonstick coating started rubbing off) with cute owl paper (covered in clear contact paper so you can wipe it clean) (with a layer of brown cardstock underneath for a nicer/less bumpy look) and a D-ring for hanging.  (Does not come with magnet or dental cleaning appointment card Cheesy)

Singlet Style Grocery Tote (1 pt)
Singlet style grocery tote (Target bag sized), in fun flower/polka dot fabric (with solid orange lining).

Padded Laptop Sleeve (1 pt)
Laptop sleeve (made for my old laptop, hardly used since that thing was too heavy to really be portable, I washed before taking pics and the flannel pilled in the wash, which is why it's only 1pt instead of 2), padded with several layers of fleece, and closes with velcro.  (The measurements of my old laptop as provided by the Gateway website are= 1.31 to 1.40-inches (H) 14.09-inches (W) 10.39-inches (D)... it fit quite snug into this sleeve)

Sarah's Super Shop

I live in Aurora, Ohio (USA) and have a chocolate lab and a cat.  I try to keep them away from my crafts but you never know when a hair will sneak in (...lots of hair will sneak in the Hairy Spoon rests hehe).  No smoking in my house so nothing will smell bad from smoke!

I can make these in other colors if you would like...PM me for details Smiley

Welcome to the Laughing Lark!
Closed till the next round.
Merry Christmas!

I live in a non-smoking home with my hubby, three boys, three goldfish and a super fluffy tomcat with attitude. I do try to keep Seymour out of my crafts.  Smiley
Every pic is a clicky-clicky link to a bigger image.

Wire Wrapped Glass Snowflakes (1/2) 2 snowflakes wrapped in craft wire for 1/2 point. I have 3 sets available. They could either be a pendant or a small ornament.  2 sets sold to ptarmic wumpus (thanks, ptarmic!), 3 left! Smiley

Strawberries by the dozen (1) Cute  beaded acrylic strawberry charms with a touch of white paint on each berry. These are lightweight and fun. I have three sets of 12 made for this round, and if there is interest, I'll order more of the beads I need to make them. They were really fun to make, and I was sad to run out of beads... WinkOne set sold to penguino, 2 sets left.

Mount Ida Arkansas Crystal Points
Mt. Ida, in  the Ouachita Mountains, is home to one of the biggest quartz crystal deposits on earth. We have mined our own crystals down there, but I bought these ready to use a long time before we tried mining for ourselves. I didn't mine, clean, or drill these myself, just did the wire-wrap part.  Smiley
The loops at the top can easily be opened with a pliers for attaching them to whatever you want. 20 gauge craft wire was used, in either green, silver color, or gold color.

Wire Wrapped Quartz Points #4 (1)

Wire Wrapped Quartz Points #5 (1)

Pile of Beaded Works in Progress (1) This is a group of beaded earrings that I was working on when I was still doing craft shows. They just need a bead or two slid onto the top wires, and a loop made with a round nose pliers. You could make earrings or whatever your heart desires. Great if you need some quick gifts. All of them for one point. I need to reduce the stash of WIPs in my craft room. Smiley

What I'll send you.  Smiley

openopeneopen (fresh marshmallows!)

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

1 cup of homemade cocoa mix
ingredients: nonfat dry milk, organic dutch process cocoa, powdered sugar, cinnamon, salt
comes packaged like the marshmallows.

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.

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!

One Point

Champagne Poppy Headband

Contact me for available colors for custom orders!

Pair of Red Poppy Bobby Pins

Hello! I'm a Housewife of 4 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:
None till I get my sewing machine fixed.

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.

Custom sock monkey, giraffe, or elephant:
Pick your pair :
Baby Purple Stripes(1pair), Baby Solid Purple(1 pair), Blue/black stripes(1pair), Black(1pair), Fluffy Sherbert Colors(1pair)
baby green pink stripes(1pair), Baby Solid Green(1pair), Grey w/pruple/blue/pink stripes(1pair), Fluffy Neopolitan solors(1pair)

Please note the baby socks may not work well for the giraffe. I can try to make a small giraffe with the green colors or purple fluffy socks but not the purples on the top left(they lack the cuff needed for it).
Then pick your animal:
monkey: Giraffe: Elephant:
Or I can do the oldschool red-heel elephant too:

Pick button or embroidered eyes.
Please note I will be hand sewing these if I do not get my machine fixed. I do nice sturdy hand sewing with matching thread so it will not be noticeable.

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:
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
Middle: unfinished Stuffed dog

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

Men's Fingerless Mitts (2)(1)
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!

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

Baby Blanket w/ Crochet Edging (1)
A teal fleece baby blanket that I added a scalloped crochet edging to in cream acrylic yarn.  It measures 30"x30".

Blue Swirl Beanie (1)
A super cute beanie crochet in a variegated acrylic yarn using cluster stitch.  The yarn created the cute swirly pattern.  Can be machine washed and dried.

Cotton Facial Set (1)
This includes one washcloth and three facial scrubbies.  They're crocheted from cotton and will only get softer with use!  

Cotton Kitchen Set (1)
This includes one dishcloth and two tawashi scrubbies, all crocheted with cotton yarn.

Fancy Fun Cowl (1)(0.5)
In my attempts to work through my stash, I knit up these fun cowls that slide right over the head and are very soft against the neck.  Claim as red or blue.

"Foggy Morning" Dyed Recycled Yarn (1)
Recycled yarn, respun to gather the separated plies then dyed with Kool Aid.  Fibers: 42% Wool / 30% Acrylic / 28% Alpaca.  This is about 96 yards.

Green and Cream Collar (1)
A sweet collar with ruffles crocheted with green ruffles on a cream scallop pattern.  Square button closure can be fastened into the scallop design if you need to make it more snug around your neck.

iPod armband (1)(0.5)
This was made for me as part of my Magic Yarn Ball Round 5 swap by Eye On Sparrow.  Unfortunately I don't have an iPod and would rather it go to somebody that does!  It's crocheted with velcro closure.

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 green or yellow in your claim.  Blue has been claimed!!

0.5 Point Items
Please redeem in full points.  Thanks!

Crochet Baby Booties (0.5)(0.25)
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)(0.25)
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.

Shell Earrings (0.5)
Made a pair of these for my swap partner in another swap but liked them so much I made another pair for myself.  I still have supplies to make more!!  They have small wooden beads and a shell in the center.  This is a photograph of my pair - I'll be making any orders when you claim so the bead colors may vary slightly.  If you want to claim more than one pair, just let me know!

0.25 Point Items
Please redeem in full points.  Thanks!

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.  

Silhouette LandscapesUmbrellas

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

Mill End Roving (2) for 3oz 4oz
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!  There is mohair in this, but I've found that it's pretty easy to separate.  The colors remind me of smores!

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.

Free with purchase
Pick one!

Fuzzy Pouch
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

Mystery Yarn
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.

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 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)

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.

Psyche's Fabulous Shop  
. . . is OPEN! And wow, look at those deals!

I'm Jess (or psyche), and I live in Ontario, Canada in a smoke-free home with two cats - and a couple people too. And alas, you won't see much (anything?) new for December, because we're starting to "stage" our house now to list it for sale in the beginning of 2010. Unfortunately, the stagers are against clutter, and somehow that includes my craft supplies. . .  which will therefore be going into storage until the house is sold. Nooooo!

As always, don't forget to claim in full point values!

CUSTOM OVEN MITTS (2 points each)
Originally going to be a stock item, but everyone had such opinions on colour and style that I'm offering these custom instead! I'll make one at a time. PM me before claiming for your colour scheme or any other changes you might like, and I'll let you know what I can do!

NOT AVAILABLE except to those who've messaged me previously (and might need to earn some points...) :
freestyle (or  pseudo_pix?)

Here is an example of a finished pair that I made for a friend:

LIP GLOSS(0.5 point each);

--> All made by me with pure beeswax, petroleum jelly, olive oil, Vitamin E ointment; in twist-up tubes, labelled and plasticized. Several available of each. Shown in their slightly creepy labels, but plain (or Christmas-y) labels are workable! Choose from:
- Black Cherry - cherry taste & scent, reddish tint
- Vanilla Spice - mainly vanilla flavoured and scented, with a slight hint of cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange; neutral colour
- Mint - mint flavoured and scented, green tint

STAR BAG (1 point) (0.5 point) - Relatively simply made. Blue pleather clutch (with wrist strap) lined with a lime green nylon. Star cut-out. Zip top. No interior pockets.


NEWSPAPER WALLET (1 point) (0.5 point) "Do You Need Extra Money?" Trifold wallet made of packing tape and paper. Vintage ad on the exterior, comics and pastel coloured construction paper on the interior. Velcro closure. These wallets hold up to regular use surprisingly well, but keep in mind. . . it is a wallet made of paper!

Stars Fabric - very light blue with red pin stripes and black nautical stars  Not sure of the material, but it's a slightly stiffer than your usual 100% cotton. (1 point)

Devil Fabric - blue with little mischievous devils. Feels cotton-y, but I'm not positive. (0.5 point) (0.25 point)

Paisley fabric - Cream/Fuschsia/Teal/Blue, stripes with big paisley designs. This is a thicker, decor weight fabric and a nice big piece too. (1 point)

Dutch fabric. From the Netherlands in the My Country Doesn't Have That Swap, it's blue & white with the traditional Dutch kissing kids and windmills. Another cotton-y feeling fabric.  (1 point) (0.5 point)

Books & Magazines

Simple Sewing. (A Klutz book). A nice kids' gift, but could also be good for a newbie adult. Almost all of the supplies for the projects in the book are still there. (1 point)

Woman's Day Granny Squares (magazine... really old, but interesting) (0.5 point) (0.25 point)

General Supplies

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

.25 point items:

Girls Hot Dog Shirt-.25
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 -.25
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.

.5 Point Items

Baby button ponytail holders- .5 for the pair
These ponytail holders are very small, the type designed for babies or small children.

Smokey blue earrings- .5

1 Point Items

Little birdie ornament- 1
This one was a family effort: the bird is from my brother's wedding invitation for which he did the graphic design and my mom cut out the piece of wood.

Gnome ornament -1
Cute little gnome on a nice piece of wood. And the back of the ornament shows his backside too!


Bird frame ornament-1

Pinwheel earrings -1

Guest keyrings-1
Charm your guests by loaning them your house key on one of these adorable keychains that have the word "guests" embroidered on the backs. Also, it will help you keep up with your spare key and have it handy when visitors come for the holidays! The second picture shows the backs of the keychains. THE TOP KEYCHAIN IS TAKEN.

Embroidered backs:

Gnome note cards- 1 point for set of 8
These cards feature photos by me and come with envelopes.

Gnome photo set- 1
2 5x7 photos taken by yours truly Smiley

Mini teacup pincushion-1
This is quite petite and so cute.

Antique China pincushion - 1

Pride and Prejudice Sash- 1- REDUCED


Silver Heart necklace-1 REDUCED!
This is a silver-plated heart with two swarkovski crystals on each side.

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!

Mrs. Darcy:

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

Vintage Pinwheel quilt squares - .5 for 2 REDUCED
You can have these like they are for .5 point or I can sew them into two pillows (without the stuffing) for one point total.

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, #18 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.

Watering can pincushion -1

2 Point Items

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.


Pocket herb guide-1

Liz Claiborne trivet-1
This is perfect for you talented folks who like to paint on ceramics. It has raised dots along the edges.

Here's the back:

Lil Crafter Smock/Apron-1
This is child-sized and sturdy so it's perfect for messy projects like painting. It's not handmade, but it is new. Has pockets.

Seed beads- 3 for one point
The turquoise and red are a bit bigger than seed beads and the cobalt blue are seed beads.
These are a great deal!! And they come with the additional beads in the clickable thumbnail.

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.

!callunas Shop!

:OPEN and ready to make a deal!

I have a dog, and I'm fairly fuzzy myself, so pardon stray hairs...I dont smoke, I avoid smoke, and there is no indoor smoking where I live.

For 2 points:

- custom 2010 page-a-day calendar. choose between a glue binding (like the ones bought at the store), screwpost binding or a metal ring binding. Themes I already have ready to go include childfree-by-choice, birds, and Ralph Waldo Emerson. some examples of previous ones I've made:

- "Sins, Vices and Confessions": an altered journal befitting for all your sordid affairs. Grin Mixed paper and mixed media journal with more pages than I can count right now, approximately 8.5x11", soft-cover and sewn binding. Pages devoted to the seven deadly sins, various other improprieties and vices, and not-so-serious additions to the ten commandments. Rated PG13 - nothing obscene, no foul language, gore or nudity - but since I'm still working on the insides of the book I can bump it up to an R-rated book if you prefer. I won't judge you for it. Wink

woven rag rug - the first decent thing i've made on my homemade basic loom!  Grin Various fabrics in the green-turquoise-blue range, which remind me of the ocean, wool yarn weft. Approx 19x17".

Wedding flutter-album - blank scrapbook recon'd from a hardback novel called "To the Wedding". Cardstock pages with vellum dividers and black/gold/copper gingko leaf design accent paper (which sin esperanza sent me from NZ!) 2 envelopes built in made with textured black cardstock. Ribbon embellishment between pages and at the bottom edge. Another ribbon ties the book closed. Included with this book will be more of the metallic gingko leaf paper and textured black cardstock, plus some coordinating papers, eyelets, brads and whimsies.

For 1 point:

Heirloom handspun art yarn - off-white roving spun with old artificial pearls, doll shoes, miniature tarnished safety pins, little scraps of antique lace, metal beads, a wooden spool, and an aged, off-white lace trim. It's only about 7 yds.  Embarrassed

Joker needlework - approx 4x7

"Burlesque Boudoir" handspun art yarn - multiple yarns spun together, incorporating black lace, fake pearls, sequins, and feathers. Not a lot of yardage. The yarn sat sealed up in a London postal warehouse for a month and was never picked up by my swap partner, so I've been airing it out since then.

"T-kettle" mini altered canvas set - 4 little bitty canvases; 2 have a purple-green sheen (interference paint) which doesn't show up in the photos.

custom-made recond hardcover book from an old Readers Digest Condensed Book. The one shown is sold, but I have a variety of different cover colors and patterns, and I can do a variety of different bindings.

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 goldish/bronzy 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.

recond vintage childrens textbook to CD holder - can hold 28 CDs and several liner note booklets. Bright colors, retro childrens 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 make as many of these as needed.

dainty cross-stitch of your favorite 4-letter word, with an authentic art nouveau or art deco border and font.  Smiley I can also do monograms, phrases, and other custom things, but contact me before claiming to make sure your idea is something I can get finished within a week.

For 1/2 a point:

Burlesque bookmark - x-stitch on aida cloth with black lace and microbead trim and big tacky feather sewn on. I made this for a swap but the recipient disappeared and the package was sent back to me.

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...Though, if you have some Barbie shoes, it would be awesome if you made tassels with those! I can't find any, myself.


1 point

Flat-Rate envelope stuffed with paper/ephemera - vintage goodies, book pages, weird randomness, most images too big for ATCs. there will be embellishments, too, maybe some handspun yarn as well. Let me know your preferences and interests when claiming.

Small-Flat-Rate Box-of-Whimsies - same idea as the above, but more 3-dimensional. (: beads, vintage buttons, trims, notions, findings, oddities...y'know, whimsies.

half a point

6 unopened packs of Sculpey III (polymer clay). Colors: Pink Pearl, Gray-Intermediate, Flesh (2 packs), Maroon, and Pearl. They'll need some major kneading, as all unhandled polymer clay does; I don't know how old they are because I bought them second hand but they don't feel brittle.

Quarter of a point:

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

- Any 1 of these letter stamps, or 5 for 1 pt; made by Inkadinkadoo. Claim by the letter.

- Any 1 of the unmounted rubber stamps in these thumbnails, or 5 for 1 pt - claim as: opera, pen, hat bird, augustin, P.O., australia, wine, milling, apples, prettymiss

- Any 2 of the rubber stamps in these thumbnails, or 10 for 1 point. most are mounted with black foam.

- 50 sheets of off-white vellum paper, 8.5x11", can be run through some printers

- glossy blank punched cards - 16 sheets, heavy cardstock, about the size of a recipe card or large index card, bright white with a somewhat slick surface--not as glossy as a photo but has a sheen to it that makes it a perfect surface for rubber stamping and maybe alcohol inks. I got these second-hand but I'm pretty confident they were made to be altered. Large hole in the corner for binding them all with a bunch of chunky yarns!

sandwich baggie full of dried lavender buds (US only due to int'l shipping regulations)

old wooden spools of thread - I also have MANY wooden spools with no thread; if you would rather have some of those, please let me know (same price for the same quantity)

thank you for shopping!

Handmade Vegan Soaps!!

Pumpkin Crunch Pie[1]
smells sooooo incredibly yummy, but it looks kinda like brains. gross yet irresistible!

Witching Hour[1]
this one is not as smelly as I'd like it to be... it's supposed to smell musky and yummy and patchoulie-y, but it's not very potent. I just gave one of these to a friend of mine and he loves it. says it's a very 'fresh' scent. so I guess it's pretty hit or miss with different people.

Lavender & Vanilla[1]

Nag Champa & Sandalwood w/ Loofa [1]
When I first poured the soap into the mold with the loofah, I ended up with a hole through the middle where the soap didn't penetrate. So I made another batch to fill the middle [see the white-ish parts?] Might not be the prettiest soap... but it sure does smell good!

Joy of Almond:
CP soap with almond & coconut fragrance oil, swirled with cocoa powder. [get it? Almond Joy? hehe copyright infringement my arse]


art yarn kit [.5]
I got this from the awesome weet! in the handspun swap. but I'm not a big fan of tinsely glitz, so I'm passing it on! contents: red & gold glitz, red & purple sequins, red purple & white feathers, pastel green lacey-flowery bits, about .5 yard (or a bit less) of coordinating fabric. apporx. weight: 2.5oz

I'll pack the box with as much bubblewrap as I possible can without popping the bubbles lol.
this is about the size of the box:

gavagai's big sale shop is...


Everything is now only 1 point!!!

needle felting kit, 2 points Super sale - only 1 point!

This includes:
1 foam pad to use as a base when felting (approximately 6"x6", but may differ a little bit...)

1 felting needle.

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:

Wool handbag (carded by hand) to use for felting on or decorating in other ways. One point each! 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 while needle felting. The lining can then easily be sewn back by hand.

Please claim in full point increments. Thank you! Smiley

Handmade Items:

Faux Dread Extensions

All sizes can be used by all lengths of hair if you get creative! Warning: These are super goofy pictures! I'm not really your hair extension wearing girl, so these are my best Lilo faces. LOL

Pink/White Hairband (3 pt)

Several extensions sewn to a rubber band for pulling up hair into ponytails. Clip up extensions for a funky look. Extensions are felted but fluffy. If you would like them tighter, you can wet them with hot water add soap and felt to desired density. These are long and good for medium-long hair but can be used in short hair if you're feeling extra wild!

Orange/Yellow/White Extension Clip (2 pt)

These extensions have wool, bamboo and firestar. Are loosely felted. Extensions are felted but fluffy. If you would like them tighter, you can wet them with hot water add soap and felt to desired density. These are sewn to a metal clip. Can be clipped up with hair to create a funky look or worn under your hair. Good for medium to short hair.

Light Pink Extension Clip(1 pt)

Smaller extension clip made from wool with mohair. Dyed with pink lemonade koolaid. Nice for short hair. Just clip under hair, tease and go! Now has more dreads added to it for a fuller look.
