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=346058.0

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 38 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!!!

      SciFunk's Lab

      I live in California and am finishing up my B.S. in Chemical Biology at U.C. Berkeley. My crafts come from a smoke-free home with two snakes, a bearded dragon, a chinchilla, and a cat, but only the cat is ever around the crafts. Smiley I try to keep everything hair-free, but you never know when a stray hair will sneak in.


      3 pt2 pt!
      • Charm Bracelets: Made with glass, swarovski crystals, and all sterling silver components. All of the charms were hand assembled by me and carefully wirewrapped onto the chain. I love them all so much. Smiley Some are made for smallish wrists, so please measure yours before claiming!
        Azure Sky: 7 inches, not including heart toggle clasp

        Pretty in Pink: 6 inches, including lobster-esque clasp

        Icy Blue: 6 inches, not including heart toggle clasp. I think this one may actually have some plastic beads, but they're not super obviously plastic.

      2 pt
      • Calorimetry (somewhat customizable): Please PM me for available colors/yarns. This image is an example of some I've made before. I can re-make each of these, or possibly another color/fiber type. The blue one is 100% superwash, the off white is 80% baby alpaca 20% silk.

      1 pt
      • Cross Stitch Patterns: Custom made to your specifications, using an image provided by you. You can provide a particular cloth count, number of colors, size, etc. If you think it might be a super complicated design, please PM me before claiming so we can discuss it. The finished pattern will be delivered electronically in .pdf format. Obviously, I can do color patterns, I just do a lot of black and white for my own uses. Wink Here are some examples:
      • Resin pendants: All covered in a fancy schmancy gloss that gives them a glassy sheen.
        Claim as small solid clover, large outlined clover, blue soda tab, green dragon, unicorn, sprinkles, Canada leaf, ice cream cones
      • Beaded Bracelets: Entire lot for 1 pt.


      1 pt
      • Fantasy embroidery kits. Click on picture for bigger. All 3 for 1 pt.
      • Various oldish rococo/damask type scrapbooking stuff. Click for larger, and if you can't read what's in them you can PM me. I think they're each missing a single sheet of paper. All three for 1 pt.
      • Small flat rate box stuffed with Mardi Gras beads. These are from New Orleans Mardi Gras 2009. I have all kinds of colors and shapes and ones with fancy pendants and all that. PM me for more details, and feel free to request something specific.

      1/2 pt
      You know the drill--please only claim in full point increments.
        Books, claim as:
      • Simple embroidery (missing hoop and maybe some of the floss, but I think everything else is there)
      • Create anything with clay OR Incredible Clay book (Fimo book is very thin and comes with whoever claims a clay book first) Claim both for 1 pt.
      • Origami hardcover (comes with a pack of origami paper)
      • Bead book (just comes with the book)
      • Baby knits booklet (six patterns for matching hat/sock combos)
      • Magical cross stitch (like new, has bajillions of fantasy patterns)

      • Picture frames: set of 4 for 1/2 point
      • Sewn curlers (from here). They don't have buttons, so you have to safety pin them closed.


      Only available by special request. If you PMed me about claiming some in the future, I have it for you. Just PM me again and I'll put up your listing.

      Free Stuff!
      Use your judgment. If your actual claim is something tiny, please don't ask for a giant free thing. These are free because they probably won't affect the shipping price too much for your actual item. You can claim lots of small things, and depending on the size of your box, maybe some larger things. Just don't be mean. Wink
      Click for larger! Claim as: Cat punch, Levenger bookmark, brads, iron-on embroidery transfers, dragon sword letter opener, bergamot essential oil, little green notebook, The Brun cologne, Castin' Craft dyes, Castin' Craft mold release, pirate patch, leaf stamps, star folding paper, foil adhesive pen/paper, blue glowing USB stars (you plug them into a USB port and they glow), crochet today (sept/oct 2009), cross stitch baby booties, quote stack booklets, needle felting tool

      Hello! I'm a Housewife of 4 years and we have 6, 4 legged, children. They are 1 giant yellow dog, 1 small shepherd mix, 3 crazy cats, and 1 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.

      SHOP IS:
      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.

      1 Point Items:

      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

      1/2 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

      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.

      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

      Little birdie ornament- .5 REDUCED

      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.

      This is the sweetest little ballet bag for the sweet little ballerina in your life. Perfect to hold a pair of ballet shoes, leotard, and afternoon snack! Smiley

      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.

      Gavagai's swap shop

      ...where everything is one point!

      First the...


      Totoro fairytale ring - This is a button ring made with buttons in blue and transparent/white. On top is a polymer clay white totoro, surrounded by three green metallic leaves. Totoro can be facing you or your fingertips when the ring is worn. Ring base is adjustable to suit all sizes.

      Next, the skull ring:


      Distinct red, grey and black buttons, black button acting as a somewhat mediaeval looking collar for the skull firmly placed on top of the buttons, looking around. Ring is adjustable to fit all sizes.

      the Soot sprite ring


      ...with a cute little soot sprite on a white button with transparent border, covered with shiny white beads. Ring is adjustable to fit all sizes.

      I love U ring


      The last image is there just to show that that part sticking out below the heart button is visible if you look at the ring from a really weird angle. It has no real practical significance, but I thought you should know.  Smiley Ring is adjustable to fit all sizes.

      Spring colored ring with loads of purple beads


      Loads of purple beads underneath a yellow heart. Spring green rounded button and a white background. Feels like summer! Ring is adjustable to fit all sizes. (Sorry about the blurry pictures.)

      Warm flower ring


      Beautiful ring in yellow/orange/green. It has a retro feel to it. Ring is adjustable to fit all sizes.

      Clover ring?


      Well, this isn't really clover, but with the white and green I think it has a bit of an Irish feel to it. Ring is adjustable to fit all sizes.

      Shop OPEN
      Location: Canada
      Stats: Pet-free (although I wish it weren't!), smoke-free
      Bio: I'm a university student specializing in Behavioral Neuroscience. Not surprisingly, I have a strong nerdy streak. However, I try to balance this out with a healthy dose of creative expression through crafting and theater. Smiley

      3 points

      Loopy Bracelet 3 pt - (Custom Order) PM me if you want one of these, preferably before you order it. We can discuss colors and then I can go check out a bead store, but I might need more than a week to get it made and shipped off.

      Example of a loopy bracelet in ice blue, pearl, and silver-lined clear beads:

      Loom Bracelet 2 pt - (Custom Order) PM me if you want one of these, preferably before you order it. We can discuss colors and then I can go check out a bead store, but I might need more than a week to get it made and shipped off. I can do essentially any pixelated design, although if it's really complex, I might make it 3 pt for the mental effort. Below are two examples:

      Crocheted Cowboy Hat 3 pt SALE - 2 pt
      Received from kidcompassion approximately 2 years ago. It's a beautiful hat and I fell in love with the idea of a crocheted cowboy hat. Unfortunately, I've always been too wimpy to wear it around my hometown. Thus, I would like it to go to the home of someone who can and will pull the hat off!  Cheesy

      Needle felted ring

      !callunas Shop of mainly books!
      --closed til summer--
      I have a dog, and I'm fairly fuzzy myself, so pardon stray hairs.

      For 1 point:

      Custom explosion box album - from this tute - It looks like a box and it sits like a box til you take the lid off, and then BOOM--out flops these album pages in 4 directions. Largest pages are approximately 4x4". Basic structure without decoration shown here:
      The base will be paperboard or heavy cardstock, decorated with the colors/designs of your choosing in paper, paint, fabric, or whatever best suits your vision. I can also add little mini journals in between the pages, and/or pages that flop out in other directions.

      Custom mini explosion-album - from this tute, with color scheme, pattern, etc of your choosing. Several 4x4" pages, all folding up into a nice little square (instead of a box, like the album above) and kept shut with a ribbon. 2 for 1 point. Sample of the mini-album fully open/unfolded:

      Custom foldy mini-album or journal - from this tute, it all folds and closes up neatly but inside the pages are different sizes and go in different directions. Either take the chocolate-mint one shown in the pictures, or choose your own color scheme, patterns etc.

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

      pink/rust recon blank 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.

      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.

      Not-books  Smiley :
      Nintendo Duck Hunt cross-stitch - x-stitch with crayon-tinted sky. image is approximately 9x7". only 1 point because there are a couple chocolate stains on the fabric outside the margins of the picture (see upper left corner; they wouldn't show if you framed it).

      "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 dainty cross-stitch of your favorite 4-letter word, with an authentic art nouveau or art deco border and font.  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.

      take one of these FREEEEE with any claim!

      - all these international Olympics-themed postage stamps:

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

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

      jungrrl's shop

      I live in Chicago in a cat-loving home.

      I'm cleaning out my craft crap! It will only be up in STS 38 and 39. I've priced it to MOVE but if you want it for less, let me know! I am totally willing to wheel and deal. It needs to leave my house immediately.  Whatever doesn't get purchased will go to charity.
      If you need any additional information about anything please don't hesitate to ask!

      Peaches Fabric - 2pt
      Over 5 yards. Cotton. I'll cut from it for less if you want.

      Tropical Quilts - 1pt
      Log Cabin Quilts - 1pt

      Both of them are thin books but packed with info.

      Cream Fabric - 1pt
      Really soft.. cotton? but fuzzyish. Around 1 3/4 yards

      Rust Quilting Cotton - 1 pt
      1 2/3 yd

      Hearts and Stars Fabric - 1pt
      a little over 2 yds. Cute! Thin cotton (?) textured.

      Partial Points! Mix and Match!!

      Green Felt - 1/2 pt
      Acrylic but actually pretty decent quality. About 1 1/2 yards. Some things cut out of one end.

      Green Textured Fabric - 1/2 pt
      Cotton? the design is textured. The closeup is NOT representative of color, but the other picture is. A little over 1 yd

      Magnolias Needlepoint Kit - 1/2 pt
      Never opened. Contains thread, print on 14 mesh cotton canvas, needle and instrucions. 5x5.

      Messenger Bag - 1/2 pt

      This is from before I really understood how important interfacing is! So it's a relatively well made bag (there are a few issues, but none that effect the structural integrity!) but it's really really floppy. Maybe about 13x15x2

      Calvin & Hobbes Book - 1/2 pt
      For papercrafting, obviously. Wink  Full of mostly black and white, but some color comics

      White Shiny Fabric - 1/2 pt
      Blue Shiny Fabric - 1/2 pt
      These aren't a super high quality but would be good for a kids costume or? You can kind of see that the edges aren't cut very cleanly. I tried to get good measurements though. White is 80in x 52in Blue is 53in x 47in

      Holding for Eliea Heart Cards - 1/4 pt
      Heart shaped playing card set. Absolutely PERFECT for a 52 reasons!

      Holding for Eliea Black Furry Fabric - 1/4 pt
      I bought 1/8th of a yard and only used a small amount. Perfect for plushies!

      Blue Wavy Fabric - 1/4 pt
      ~18in x 26.5 inches. Fuzzy. Perfect for plushies!

      Orange Suede Skirt - 1/4 pt
      Use for fabric. Size 7, never worn, orange suede miniskirt.

      Orange/Red Gradient Fabric - 1/4 pt

      ~24.5x~10.5 Super cool! Fuzzy gradient fabric. Perfect for plushies!

      Stitch by Stitch #2 & #3 - 1/4 pt each
      Very 70s, but tons of info and patterns for sewing, knit, crochet. Ask and I can give more details!

      Kids Clown Pattern - 1/4 pt
      Clown pattern is cut but it's only one size I believe. Kids 6-8  Kimono robe is gone! sorry.

      Toile-ish Fabric Square - 1/4 pt
      Cool toile-ish fabric square. Edges are serged. ~26in x 30in

      Perler Bead Paraphernalia - 1/4 pt
      There are 4 pegboards, a handle of loose beads, and bunch of stuff I've made fiddling around. You can take those too if you want, or not (I won't be hurt! Wink)

      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.

      Paper Crafting with Kids by Paper Crafts Magazine
      I have lots of Readymades that I'll give for 1/2 a point. Just let me know if there's one you're interested in!!

      Crafted Items

      Whale Skirt, Size 6 - 3pt

      Waist - 26 in
      Hip - 37 in
      Lengthy - ~21 in
      This is a Liz Claiborne (high-waisted?) pencil skirt. I added my zombie whale to the side!
      (I also have a green on with the worm on it! I just don't have a good picture of the whole thing yet but here's the applique! http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4070/4445903677_8f45f11a63.jpg)

      Hipster Doll Shirt - 3pt

      Width - 15.5in (but has some give because of the deep V)
      Length - 23 in
      Design is called "Hipster Doll".  It is not serged but I think it's well constructed.  The sleeves are very slightly puffed and they don't hang as weird on arms as they do on my dressform.

      *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.

      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

      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

      "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!

      Strawberry Skirt, Size 2 - 1/2 pt

      Waist - 30in
      Hips - 36 in
      Length - 18 in
      Why so cheap you ask? It's been hanging around my house for YEARS. Please take it!  Hell, if you want it free with something else, PM me and we can work it out.
