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

Purple glass cuff bracelet (1 point)

Clear, purple and gold ornaments (1 point)

Long flower necklace #2 (1 point)

Long flower necklace #3 (1 point)

Long flower necklace #4 (1 point)

Happy heart necklace (.5 points) Turquoise heart pendant and cheerfully colored beads. Three of the same necklace available. Its about 22 long.

 Apple charms ( 1 point) Made by me. They would make a cute necklace.

Scarab beads and a pendant (.5 points) Long ago, I made one of these into a pendant. You can see the direction the beads are to be threaded by looking at the pendant.

CraftAddiction's Shop

I live in a small town in Iowa. I have a small dog, who doesn't shed.
I can do custom items. If there is anything you want crocheted, just let me know. If an item says "Custom" next to it, that means you aren't getting the exact item. It is a picture of an item I made for something/someone else. I can get it done in the one week requirement. If you have any color preferences, just let me know. My items are not made with young kids in mind. If you are claiming something for a young child, please let let me know so I don't use any items they shouldn't have (like safety eyes or weights).

Get all Christmas stamps listed for 1 point!


Market Bag - 1 pt

Other views:

Should be very sturdy, as it is make out of twine. Bread not included  Wink

Square - .5 pt

A little under 12"

Baby Blanket - 2 pt

It is hard to see the color in the pic. It is a light baby pink. The size is about 22 x 30.

Baby Pinafore - One of these or custom - 2 pt each or 2 for 3 pts
For 0-3 months. These are open in the back so you don't need to go over baby's head. There is a button in the back. If you don't want it open, just let me know and I can sew it up. Or I can make a new one, and work it in a round, so it will be closed without a seam. I can do it in other colors too.
Soft Red: Sold, I can make another.

Baby Pink:

Seal - This one or custom - 1 pt

Oreo Tape Measure - This one or custom - .5 pt


Large Christmas Bell Stamp - 1 pt

This is a large stamp at 4"x4". It would be great for making Christmas cards or stamping on presents. The lines are only there because it isn't mounted yet. Once you mount it (like on an acrylic block), they will go away. If you don't use acrylic blocks, I can mount it on wood for half a point. Sorry I don't have a better color to show the stamp. I like carving stamps. I don't use them, so I only have a few stamp pads.

Christmas Stamps 1 set (8 stamps) for 2 points

The lines around the stamps are because they aren't mounted. You can mount them yourself or I can do it for you. I charge 1 point to mount them. I can mount them on wood or I can use static cling foam and send an acrylic block so you can use 1 block for hundreds or stamps.

Hand carved Stamps - Custom - .5 point for 1 stamp

Let me know if you want them mounted or not (no charge for wood mounting). If it you want something else carved, just PM me.

Mario Scarf - Custom - 2 pts

The last image is horrible, but it gives you an idea of length. If you want it longer, or shorter, just let me know. I can do the scarf in other colors.

FireFlower - custom - 1 point

About 8-9" tall

Goomba - custom - 1 point

I think it works ups to be about 8-9" tall

Bob-omb - custom - 1 point

I can't remember how tall this one is. I think about 4-5 inches.

Zero - Custom - 2 pts

He is quite large. That is a full sized desk/office chair he is sitting on.

Clutch - Custom - 2 pts unlined or 3 pts lined

I have the same pink variegated yarn, but the button would be different. If you want a different color, just let me know. If you want, I can send you a picture of my cotton yarns.
I can make the strap removable like this one:

Mario or Luigi - Custom - 3 pts each

Bath/Kitchen set - custom - 1 pt

This set contains a bath puff, 2 spiral scrubbies, a scrubbie with handle and a face cloth.
I can also make it in variegated blue, white or ecru. Here is a picture of the variegated blue:

Cupcake - Custom - 1 pt

I can make it a weighted pin cushion or I can make it just a stuffie with beads sewn on top for sprinkles. Let me know if you don't want a face.

Dog Bone - Custom -  1 pt

About 6 inches long

Bear - This one or Custom  -  2 pts

Baby Octopus - This one or Custom - .5 pt

These are pretty small, so they would probably make good stalking suffers. I can make as many as you need in whatever color(s) you want.

Lip Gloss Cozy - One of these or Custom - .25 pt or 5 for 1 pt

Includes lip gloss. If you want a different color or button, jut let me know.

Adult Lip Gloss Cozy - Custom - .25 pt
to change your image viewing settings please click here
Because you never know when you need.... lip gloss.

Resin Pendants - .5 pt per set .5 pt for both sets
This was an early attempt at resin, so some came out better than others. Some came out good while some have tiny imperfections. Since they aren't all perfect, I'm letting them go cheap.  
Set A:

Set B:

Octopus - This one - 1 pt

Imperfect Skinny Scarf - This one - .5 pt

I noticed that a part of the shells do not match up on the other size. If you want a 'perfect' one, I can make one in this color (or any other) for one point... see below.

Skinny Scarf - Custom - 1 pt

I can do this color or one of your choosing.

Cupcake Scarf - Custom - 2 pts

Triangle Shawl - Custom - 1 pts

Can be worn as a shawl or a scarf.


Ashtray -

It is very pretty, but we have no use for it. Maybe someone wants it to hold supplies?

New Patterns - 1 pts for 3 or 2 pts for all 7 of them.
I went a little overboard at the craft store and ended up with duplicate patterns.

2626, 2779, 2806, 3572, 2921

2553, 3787, 4391,

I would love to swap for things kids could do in the car on a long car trip (3 girls ages 5-12). I can knit, crochet or trade yarn.

jungrrl's shop

I live in Chicago in a cat-loving home.

Crafted Items


Rainbow Boucle Jacket - 2pt

These are more true to color than the first.

I worked so hard on this thing. It was in my WIP pile for YEARS.  From a pattern.  When I finished all my finishing I tried it on and the armhole on ONE of the sleeves was too small for me. Sad I can give full measurements if you'd like.

Whale Skirt, Size 6 - 3pt

Full size: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4030/4446679170_b28b6a8436.jpg
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 Reduced! 2pts!

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 make my plush with adults in mind. That being said, if you do intend these 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.

MADE TO ORDER - T-bone Steak - 2pt

I'm keeping this one, but I can make you another one! Fuzzy red fabric and white fleece.

Leopard Bear - 2pt

Good for kids since all facial features are safe!

Ewok Bear - 2pt

Also only safe facial features! Can change his mood by styling his hair. Cheesy

Neon Bipolar Bunny - 2pt

This thing is so pink it hurts.

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[/s][/i] Reduced! - 2pt

Made of fun fur with glued on felt facial features.  Check out the tail action!

Senor Guzanos - 2pts Reduced! - 1pt
That's Mr. Worm, for us gringas. Notice the handsome mustache. Made from felt, some velour-ish fabric, or felted sweater, depending on the worm! FYI, my cat is obsessed with one of these! Maybe yours would be to?
Claim as Bright Guzano 1, Moss Guzano, Green Guzano 1, Dark Green Guzano 1, Olive Guzano 1, and Sweater Guzano

Claiim as Bright Guzano 2, Green Mustache Guzano, Green Guzano 2, Olive Guzano 2

Light Grey Zombie Whale - 2pts

krrriiilllllbrraiiiinns.  Made out of felt with iron on features.

Misfit Plushies!
Something wonky about each. Please love them even if they are disfigured. Wink

Brown Misfit Kitty - 1pt

Took an iron to the face and ended up flat.

Orange Felt Kitty - 1pt

So sad.

Grey Felt Kitty - 1pt

Also sad.

"Primative Worlds" Envelopes - 1/2 pt

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.


IZone Polaroid Camera - 1pt

Takes tiny pictures which would be good for paper crafters, shrine makers, etc. Can find film on Amazon.

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 a project I did for work.
