Psyche's Fabulous Shop  
. . . is OPEN!  

I'm Jess (or psyche), and I live in Ontario, Canada in a smoke-free home with two cats - and a couple people too. I'm just hoping to reach my 3 points, as this will be my last round for a while - but hey, if I get more than that I'm willing to go shopping! As always, don't forget to claim in full point values.

CUSTOM OVEN MITTS (2 points each)
NOT AVAILABLE except to freestyle, if she wants 'em

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 general 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) - 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!


SEAGLASS PENDANTS (1 point each) (0.5 point each) Wire-wrapped sea glass found on the coast of Prince Edward Island, Canada. (Some after the tail end of Hurricane Bill!). Claim: BROWN SEAGLASS or WHITE SEAGLASS

ASSORTED EARRINGS (0.5 point each) - Assorted, on fish-hook earrings. Clockwise from top: Big orange plastic witches (CLAIM: WITCH EARRINGS), light green stone (CLAIM: STONE EARRINGS); Red and black plastic style (CLAIM: RED EARRINGS); green wood beads with stars (CLAIM: GREEN EARRINGS); Blue & white wood beads (CLAIM: BLUE EARRINGS); and little plastic grapes, with leaves (CLAIM: GRAPE EARRINGS).


(Oops. Measurements still to come - though the point value gives an idea.)

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)

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)

Cats Fabric - orange with scaredy cats!  I'm feeling something cotton-y here, but again, not sure. (0.5 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)

Rubber Stamping Made Easy (book) (1 point)
Woman's Day Granny Squares (magazine... really old, but interesting) (0.5 point) (0.25 point)

"Stylish" Knitting magazine (I put "Stylish"in quotation marks because it's from 1986! A lot of fun though, and in great condition) (0.5 point)
Sew Stylish magazine (summer 2007) (0.5 point) (0.25 point)

General Supplies

Bag 'O' Bottle Caps. All Canadian brands, or at least brands sold in Canada. All good condition. If you have a particular brand desire or want to claim several sets, let me know (I've got a tub of them!). (0.5 points)

Claims Made From Me

gavagai's swap shop is...


Needle felting kit, 2 points

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.

If you claim both the needle felting kit and a wool handbag, I will throw in an extra felting needle as well, free of charge.  Smiley

Polymer clay Totoro and friends

Blue totoro, white Totoro plus four soot sprites. Blue Totoro is about 1" tall. All for 2 pts.

Supplies sale! Pick 4 of the items below for only 1 pt!

1 FQ of gorgeous bright orange retro looking fabric. 100% cotton

1 FQ of matryoshka fabric, russian nesting dolls. (more than 1 FQ available)

Cute little ninja boys (?). I got them in a swap but just haven't found a good craft project for them. Some of them show some wear. These are two for 1/4 point!

Cross stitch kits to make angels with ribbons and all sorts of stuff.

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

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

Claims made from me:
gavagai to A2K - 1 FQ of gorgeous bright orange retro looking fabric. 100% cotton  .25 (15. Jan) SENT
gavagai to A2K - 3 FQ of matryoshka fabric, russian nesting dolls. .75 (15. Jan) SENT
