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=336226.0

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!!!

Organic Hand Blended Teas

Hand-blended herbal teas made with all organic, fair trade herbs.  1 point per oz.

Selections available:

Summer Afternoon Tea - lemon balm, rosehip, hibiscus, orange peel

Floral Fantasy Tea - rose petals, calendula, jasmine, lemon balm, lavender

Digestive Soother Tea - peppermint, chamomile, fennel, orange peel

Immunity Booster Tea - rosemary, echinacea, rosehips, calendula, mint, nettles

Sleep Tight Tea - catnip, chamomile, lemon balm, oatstraw, skullcap

Freshly Roasted Coffee Beans -

Custom, hand roasted coffee beans!  Each type of coffee has a total of 1lb available, 1/4lb for a point.  These are roasted in very small batches and will be roasted ONLY on Sundays and shipped on Mondays. At this time, you'll have to grind them yourself.

Please let me know, when claiming, if you'd prefer light/medium/dark.  Information about each bean sometimes suggests a particular roast level, but of course, you're the boss.

Available Coffee:
Colombian BCT Premium - Colombian is not soft or subtle, it's direct; a broad-shouldered, solid chunk of rich aroma and flavor that finishes with a very distinctive, piquantly oily note of English walnuts. Its dependability makes it a great all day coffee, and that walnut flavor is instantly identifiable in blends.

Mexican Terruno Nayarita Washed - Lighter bodied, a super smooth finish, and a sweet fruity taste. Similar in character to Island coffees. Better as a lighter roaster.

Indonesian Bali Org. Kintamani Natural - Kintamani Natural is 100% sundried on raised beds; Its perhaps the first ever special prep natural Indonesian.  Raised beds keep the cherry free of dirty flavor, and facilitate very quick drying in Balis high altitude sun and constant island breeze.  The cup is extraordinarily clean with a rich, buttery mouthfeel, while retaining Indonesias full-bodied, savory character.  It features super-intense, brandyish fruit flavors of plum and sweet cherry at lighter roasts; darker roasts develop much heavier body with a spicy, smoky twist.

Indian Mysore Nuggets - Mysore coffees are the best known and the most popular of all Indian coffees, they posses good body and snappy acidity. The overall taste profile is very unique, with spicy overtones. These spicy overtones come from the cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, cloves and pepper that grow alongside the coffee trees. This lot is full bodied, with a rich full taste and moderate acidity. Very interesting and exotic, better with darker roasts.

Costa Rican Lomas Al Rio - A traditional washed method coffee from the Five Volcanoes area surrounding San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica. Very clean, traditional Costa Rican  coffee in the Central Valley style - a round, mellow cup with more fruit and sweet chocolate flavor notes then the bright, acidy coffees from better-known areas like the Tarrazu region.

Man Hat - 1 point.  Wool/mohair/acrylic blend.  Measures 10" across laid flat, but my head's 21" and you can see it's a bit big for me.    

"Purple Rain" hand dyed domestic wool top. 4oz, 2 points. 4 available.

Fredericka Batt, 1point, 1oz.  Superfine merino, mulberry silk, mill end wool, firestar and angelina.

Autumn Batts, 2oz, 2 points

Spring Batts, 1oz, 1 point.

Chocolate Covered Batts. 1.4oz, 1.5 points.  Blend of domestic, mill end, merino wool, alpaca and glitz.

Flight of the Bumblebee Batts, 1.7oz, 1.5points.

Pine Batts, 1.6oz, 1.5 points

Mystery Art Batts.  1 point/ounce.  Gazillions available.  If claiming multiple ounces, please let me know if you'd prefer everything to match or if mismatched sets are good. 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!

Ballband Dishcloths.  1 point/each.  (Better picture coming, but for now, claim as 1-4 top-bottom)

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!

Baby Hat, 1 point.

Scented Cake Soy Wax Melts by AJs Country Cottage on Etsy.  Delicious, highly fragrant and long lasting!  Choose from Mediterranean Fig or Apple Clove, 1/2 point/each.  

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


Mill End Wool - 4oz/point - quadrillions available??


Bag of Random Fiber - kettle dyed, misc. odds and ends and different colors. 4oz/point. Perfect for felters or drum carders!  (Multiples available up to a total of 2 lbs)

Decorative Brads, 1 point.

Gold Metallic Thread. 1/2 point.

Yarntini Sock Yarn, 3 points. Fingering weight, over 400 yards, 75% merino, 25% nylon.  Kettle dyed in a vibrant orange with subtle color variations.

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:

   * Navy Blue with sparkly white stripes - back row, #5 - claim as "navy/white turtle (1)"
   * Plum Wine with sparkly purple stripes - back row, #2 - claim as "wine/purple turtle (1)"

   * Dark Grey with brick red stripes (no pic, but reminds me of a ladybug - claim as "grey/red 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.

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

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:

I am a 23 year-old knitting fiend, who is in the process of opening OPENED her own cafe! 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

mug for Zelda.Suicide: 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


topsy-turvey elephant/mouse toy:3pt

tiny team zissou hat:1pt

chidren's sized (or for those of you with small heads), acrylic yarn, hand-embroidered detail.

coffee-dyed merino:2pt

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:4 for 1pt, 10 for 3pton sale for round 35

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!

received in a swap, but i already have this size Smiley

Amyzing Creations
All items come from a smoke free, 2 cat home in Raleigh, NC (USA).


Rest of Round 35 Promotion!!  For every point spent, you get a free half point (so if you claim a 1 pt item, you get a 0.5 pt item free... spend 2 pts, get 1 pt free... etc...)

Freebies!!  Pick 1 for each purchase of 1 pt.

For close-ups of items - http://s147.photobucket.com/albums/r283/amystagner/Shop%20The%20Swap/Freebies/
preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '_________________________________________________________________')

Puff Stitch Purse  (2 pts)
Crocheted purse (from vintage pattern), not lined, but the fabric created with the sc stitch and bulky yarn with a slightly smaller hook has made it a very sturdy purse.  Yarn is a silvery gray color and the handle are navy blue.  Approximately 10in tall (without handles, with handles it's almost 20in) and flares from 10in across at the top to 11in across at the bottom.  (Joint STS effort, crocheted by me, handles claimed from lapoli, yarn from AQ and ORB)

(Close up of the puff stitches, love them)

Bird Purse  (3 pts)
I love how this purse turned out.  Fabric is from IKEA, med. weight canvas, lined with white, hot pink fabric around the handles (these plastic handles were also claimed from lapoli).  Approximately 17.5in across, 12in tall (just the actual purse part, from the top of the handles it's 22in tall).  You can fit a TON of stuff in this bag!

Stamped Swap "Notecards"  (30 for 1 pt)  (4 sets available)
Paint sample cards with stamped images, perfect for a short message to include in your swap packages, I use them for my STS & OOWYHS packages with a "Thanks for the Claim".  
Choose from 6 different stamped images (handcarved stamps by l2e & sB), choose 1 or all 6, will be stamped in black ink.

And these are the paint sample cards I have left to give you an idea of color and shape/size, the big/long ones will be cut into strips and each card will be 1 color, the smaller ones will be used as they are with the 2 color block.

Doll Bib (0.5 pt)
This was made using a baby bib pattern, but I don't think there is any way a baby's neck can fit in that tiny hole... also has a snap, was supposed to have green fabric on the back as well but I stacked the fabrics wrong so the green is behind the 2 layers of birdseye (so that's what shows on the back).

Quilted Changing Pad (1 pt)
Changing pad (20in X 15in), made using 2 different prequilted fabrics.  One side is a cute animal/polkadot print and the other is pink gingham, with pale yellow quilt binding around the edges.  Folds up nicely to approximately 8in x 8in square (only about an inch thick when smushed).

Folded up - http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r283/amystagner/Shop%20The%20Swap/DSC09911.jpg

Stenciled Recycle Tote (2 pts)
Gusset style tote, with stenciled recycle/heart image.

Blue Wallet (3 pts)
Wallet, from the Favorite Things pattern "A Safe Place", same as the ones I made several rounds ago.  If you need details of how many pockets or whatever just ask.

Fruit Tea Towel (1 pt)
Approximately 20in x 26in white tea towel.  Hand embroidered (using Sublime Stitching patterns) and finished with a light interfacing on the back of the stitching for durability.

Close up of fruit -http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r283/amystagner/Shop%20The%20Swap/DSC09758.jpg

Embroidered Totes (2 pts each)
Same bags as in the custom section (see that listing for measurements), I used the ones without the gusset for these projects.  Hand embroidered (Hula Girl is a Sublime Stitching pattern, the owl is a vintage one) and has a light interfacing for durability.
Claim as Hula Girl or Owl

Close up of Hula Girl-
Close up of Owl- http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r283/amystagner/Shop%20The%20Swap/DSC09870.jpg

Pink Crocheted Scarf (1 pt)
Crocheted scarf, approximately 60in long and 6in wide.

Crocheted Tote  (2 pts)
Crocheted "Tidy Tote", from a free Bernat pattern.  I fell in love with this pattern, started it in Sept and finally finished it in May... but I really don't need any more bags/totes.  The yarn is a twisted cream, pink, brown (like neopolitan ice cream).

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)

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 yet.

2 Point Items:

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.

PLEASE NOTE: For feather hair accessories you can wear them like these examples to hold hair or just for decoration! I wore my test version all day today even to the store for groceries in the wind and it held just fine:

Feather pointing down, feather pointing up, decoration

Feather Hair barrettes
These are made on a felt base which is glued to a barrette like these.
The feathers are dyed and are either Chicken or pheasant. Don't see a color you like? Or perhaps want a specific combination? Pm me I have many to choose from! opening of barrettes are on the left side of the picture.(but you can't see them as they are underneath the feathers.

Claim as (left to right):blueblackwings, Blueblackpirate, fluffywhitegreen

Feathered Bobby Pins
Made similarly to those above these are mounted on a bobby pin instead of a barrette. They also have pheasant and chicken feathers:
Both of these also open on the left of the photo. I just made the feathers going opposite of each other this time.

Claim as(left to right): apirateslifeforme, bluegreenswish

1 Point Items:
Single Feather Bobby Pins
once again chicken or pheasant feathers attached to a bobby pin. I think these are really cute and fun! Oh the two pink ones look the same but actually the feathers face opposite directions. Opening to bobby pins are once again on the left.

Claim as(left to right): fluffygreensinglebobby,greenparrotbobby,magentachickenbobby,pinkepheasant1, pinkpheasant2,redparrotbobby

Single Feather Hair Barrettes
once again chicken or pheasant feathers attached to a hair barratte. Some have buttons some do not. I think these are really cute and fun! Oh the two pink ones look the same but actually the feathers face opposite directions. Opening to barrettes are once again on the left.

Claim as(left to right):blueparrotbarrette, greenpiratebarrette, magentachickenbarrette

1/2 Point Items
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!

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.

!callunas Shop!
OPEN... Now with freebies!

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:

- "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
The cover has an oval hole...https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/75773_06Dec09_101_6603.JPG and this is the inside cover
a couple page examples -

For 1 point:

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.

green/rust recon book - sewn binding with ribbons at spine, hard cover taken from old Readers Digest Condensed Books. Mixed paper inside.

pink/rust recon book - sewn binding, hardcover. Book block is attached only to back cover, with spine and front cover mainly just decorative. Mixed paper inside. Made with almost entirely reclaimed materials.

"Songs of the Doomed" recon book - a Hunter S. Thompson/gonzo journalism book originally, now a blank mini binder full of mixed blank paper and images.

"Madam, Will You Talk?" recon book - hardcover sewn binding, mixed paper journal with lots of images of anonymous women in history. Cover is painted, embossed, collaged, stamped and doodled upon, with acrylic sealant.

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

"Burlesque Boudoir" handspun art yarn - multiple yarns spun together, incorporating black lace, fake pearls, sequins, and ho pink 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. https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/75773_07091010.JPG

"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.

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.

SALE! For 1/4 a point:

'60s Swinger blank book - about 20 pages, soft-cover sewn binding with metallic silver ads from the 60s for singles events and services for swingers. It's so tacky, I couldn't help it!

Joker needlework - approx 4x7

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.


1 point

Flat-Rate envelope stuffed full of papery goodness...loteria cards, book pages, decorative printed paper, odd imagery, diagrams, old-fashioned stuff, obscure poems, sheet music...

double-sided Heidi Swapp "drama" foam stamps - used once but clean. 6 total stamps mounted on translucent stiff plastic (with stamps on each side; that's why the pictures look kinda weird). the larger flourishes are about 4 inches in length.

Half a point

Quarter of a point:

- a rainbow of Kool-Aid packets for dyeing fiber or yarn - Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple

- glossy blank punched cards - 16 sheets, heavy cardstock, about the size of a recipe card or large index card, bright white. 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. Large hole in the corner for binding them all with a bunch of chunky yarns.

take one of these FREEEEE with any claim!
- 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.

- these old wooden spools of thread - I also have MANY wooden spools with no thread; if you would rather have some of those, just let me know.

- 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.

- 6 molded multi-color crayons from scrap-crayons - each one a different color scheme, same shapes as these

- one letter rubber stamp; made by Inkadinkadoo. wooden base. "S" and "Y" are gone. Claim by the letter.

- 2 unmounted rubber stamps- claim as: opera, pen, hat bird, augustin, P.O., australia, wine, milling, apples, prettymiss

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


I live in Oklahoma with a couple kitties, smoke free!

Two Points

Simplicity sheep. Makes you calm and happy just to pet it! My mom made this a couple years ago (we have a small home based business), and it needs a happy home. The head and feet are hand painted, and the word Simplicity is hand embroidered in a light sage green. The body is made from a soft, white material and it is about 7 inches tall and 9 inches long. Will stand when propped up against something.(2)

One Point

Patchwork sheep. My mom made this from an old quilt top a couple years ago! Will stand when propped against something. About 6.5 inches tall and 8.5 inches long.

Patchwork Easter Eggs. These are so cheerful in a wooden bowl with straw or tucked into other things around the house as decoration. Made from beautiful old quilt tops, each one is  a little different. Choose any five for one point, claim as Patchwork Egg 1-13.

Champagne Poppy Headband

One more available!
Made from upcycled linings, remnants and sparkly netting, each petal was hand singed and layered. Sewn together using gold faceted czech glass beads as the center, it was then handsewn and secured with glue to a stretchy, black ouchless headband. Poppy is approximately 2.5" (1)
Contact me for available colors for custom orders for headbands or bobby pins! Here is an example of smaller flowers as bobby pins.

Northen Lights Earrings in sterling silver or nickel free oxidied brass.  (1)

.5 or less Points

Herbal Tea Spoon Rest. Made from stoneware clay that was fired in a kiln, glazed and fired again. Really pretty spring green color. Extra from the tea rests I made previously. .5

Almond Cuticle Cream. Made from a rich combination of beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter and more, this stuff is so awesome. This little container goes a long way, too. A staple in my purse in these winter months! I can decorate the lid with a little silver star or lady bug instead of flowers if you prefer. (.5) each

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 1 pt., 6 for 2 pts., 10 for 3 pts.
Sent to AsphaltQueen

One Point

Vintage Feedsack Fabric Sampler. These are original vintage, not reproduction. I love them, but have a lot of these pieces and decide that I could part with some! It seems as though someone was cutting them out to make a quilt. You will receive 5 of each pattern, totaling 25. (1)

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.

Psyche's Fabulous February Shop  
. . . is CLOSED

I'm Jess (or psyche), and I live in Ontario, Canada in a smoke-free home with two cats - and a couple people too. You probably won't see any new stuff this month as I'm just hanging around to buy some things  and I figured I'd just post what I have. . . but hey, you never know.

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 - 3 available
- Vanilla Spice - mainly vanilla flavoured and scented, with a slight hint of cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange; neutral colour - 1 available
- Mint - mint flavoured and scented, green tint - 5 available

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

Claims I have Made
RubyTuesday to psyche - Two handmade wooden buttons (Bird, Square) - 1 point - SENT

jungrrl's shop

I live in Chicago in a cat-loving home.

*Notice - I don't really intend for my plush to be given to children. I make them with adults in mind, that being said, if you do intend this for a little one they should be relatively safe, especially if they have iron on or plastic features.  The glued on features should be secure but.. I dunno how strong/determined your kid is. Please use your best judgement.

Crafted Items

Brown Pocket Kitty - 3pt
Made out of fun fur and iron on with a small felt nose.  His white chest area is a pocket! Perfect for hiding love notes. I have lots of other kitties that I will put up later

Pink BiPolar Bunny - 3pts
Two sides of the same bun. Made of fleece with glued on features. I have other BPB's lying around that I'll get up later.

Pocket Bunny - 3pts
Made of fun fur with glued on felt facial features.  Check out the tail action!

Senor Guzano - 2pts
That's Mr. Worm, for us gringas. Notice the handsome mustache.  He is made of a fuzzy velour-ish? material with iron on facial features. I have more of these in different colors of felt and with different 'staches. Let me know if you might be interested in one that's slightly different.

Light Grey Zombie Whale - 2pts
krrriiilllllbrraiiiinns.  Made out of felt with iron on features

Dark Grey Zombie Whale - 2pts
Same as above

"Primative Worlds" Envelopes - 1pt
Set of 4 envelopes made from the pages of a random book I own called "Primative Worlds"  Roll Eyes  There is no way to seal these, unfortunately but a wax stamp would look killer!


ONeill Hoodie - 2pts
I used to sell this kind of thing on Ebay.  This is old new stock basically.  I had grand plans for putting appliques over the O'Neill part. Maybe you could do that?  I ONLY have smalls. I can get you the exact measurements if you want! They are comfortable and thin. Originally retailed for $46.50. I have probably 8 of these.

Let me know if you want any specific info like what projects are in them, etc. Generally speaking they will be in decent shape EXCEPT some/most of the ads may have scribbles or lines through them.  It was I did for work.  I have more that I will be adding later.

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.

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.

License Plate-1
Does not come with Fattylumpkins  Smiley. This is nice and flat though it doesn't look like it because of the angle.

Hooded Sweatshirt-3
Brand new from Target. I bought it to stencil so I have washed it, but then I never did anything with it. It is very good quality.

Edible Snowflakes -.5
Imported from Germany so they probably don't have any weird chemicals in them! They were in my stocking and they are so cute, but I probably won't be having a need for them this winter so I want them to go to someone who can use them. They would be so cute on a cake or cupcakes.

Travel Stamps .5 for two
These are supercute travel-themed foam stamps. Each cube has an image on 4 sides so you will really be getting 8 stampable images for .5!

other sides:

Alphabet stamps-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:

Seed beads- .25 for cobalt blue (red and turquoise no longer available)

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- 1 points for lot REDUCED FOR ROUND 34
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 or 3 points for both boxes
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.

All items will be making their way to you from Southern California!  I do have a kitty but he's not allowed in my craft room.
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!

1 Point Items

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.

"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.

Memory Wire Bracelet (1)
I got this bracelet in another swap but it's a little too snug on my wrist and so I haven't been wearing it.  I'd rather it go to a good home where it can be worn more often!

Men's Fingerless Mitts (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!

Photo Notecards (1)
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.  Not all of the cards are pictured here, this is just an assortment.  Each claim is for a random assortment of 8 complimentary cards with matching envelopes.  Please specify if you'd prefer a theme to the selection - i.e. landscapes, animals, etc.  

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!

ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) (0.5/each)
These are ATCs that I created by digitally modifying my photographs and then mounting them onto playing cards.  ATCs are 2.5"x3.5" and make perfect little pieces of artwork!  Each comes in a protective sleeve and is signed by me.  Please specify which you would like in your claim.  From left to right - Simplicity, Exploration, Tranquility, Serenity.


iPod armband (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.

Rustled Up Socks Knitting Pattern (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!

Fuzzy Scarf (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

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

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.

Thank You Notecards (0.5 pts each)
I have 2 sets of Thank You cards (each set has 8 or more I believe, forgot to count!)  They could be used as is or used as a base to embellish.  They have matching envelopes.  Please specify plain or floral in your claim

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.
