I received a really great package from Momof2! today. Take a look:

It's a mug rug! I've always wanted one of of these, they're so decorative and so handy.

There's also a little "spooky" sign, some fear tape (like police tape but it warns of zombies!), a glittery spider, and some tasty candy.

Sorry the pic is so dark. I tried to light it better but nothing seemed to work, plus it came out a bit blurry. If you have a better pic Momof2! please post it. This is much cuter than the pic would indicate.

Thanks so much for my package, I love everything. This was a fun swap.

I received from Audio today and WOW, she's a great swap partner and an excellent stalker. Look at all these goodies:

There's the pumpkin with all the treats from inside. There's a lovely coffin shaped pincushion with some cool skull and funerary pins, a sign with a fun saying, an adorable pumpkin head doll with a jaunty hat, a pair of Halloween socks, a creepy eye scarf, a pair of coffin shaped treat boxes, some bat and spider buttons, pencils, erasers, eyes, skulls, skeletons, creepy crawlies, earrings, and an awesome bloodstained fabric I had everything resting on. Whew, that's a lot!

A sign with a saying I had pinned on Pinterest

A close up of skeletons, a ribbon with a skeleton pattern, and the pincushion, with the pumpkin bucket looking on. I think she's impressed. Smiley That fabric with the bloodstains is so awesome too.

I tried to get a close up of the pins in the pincushion, it didn't come out well but they are so tiny. If you made those, Audio, my hat is off to you. Such fine, detailed work.

And the best of all, this cute little pumpkin doll with an eyeball hat. She's ready for her Halloween party.

Everything is just so perfect. Thanks so much, Audio, you made my whole holiday with all this wonderful loot!

I got my package from fatewineroses today and I'm still reeling from all the goodies. She is the best swap partner and I'm so lucky to have gotten her this round.

The package was quite an emotional journey. First she brought the laughs with this from Monty Python and the Holy Grail:

Without any prompting she managed to hit one of my favorite quotes from the movie. That whole scene with the French knights never fails to make me laugh, just like I did when I saw that plaque.

Then I discovered this from Young Frankenstein:

I don't know how many times I've seen Young Frankenstein - a bunch. My favorite scenes are between Victor and Igor. I'm so blown away by this I can't even express it. I just sat and stared when I opened it. Talk about tiny stitching! And a portrait! I can't even imagine how something like this is done.

Then I opened this from Aladdin:

And the lining:

How did she know yellow is my favorite color? And once again the quote is perfect. She's either the world's best stalker or she's psychic. I swear I teared up when I saw this because of Robin Williams. The lining is a tribute to his beautiful soul.

Then there was this from Lord of the Rings:

The Eye of Sauron! Old Lord of the Rings himself! lol

You think that's the best thing about it, the evil reptilian eye? No, not at all. It also... lights up! Yes, that's right, my very own, glowing Eye of Sauron.  I couldn't get a picture of it lit up, it washed out to much. Suffice it to say it's bloody awesome!

And did I mention the candy? There was candy too, was being the operative word.  Cheesy

Fatewineroses, you're the best. Thanks so much!

I received a really amazing scene from my partner today. PromisedHeartbrk is awesome!

There are a lot of pics here so be patient. This graveyard scene deserves better pictures than my poor photography skills, but here goes:

Just look at the little gateposts. It's full of great details.

Here's another view:

And another:

And as if that wasn't enough, I also got a batty mug, some spooky s'mores (their tiny costumes are adorable), and some fabulous Halloween fabric.

Spooky extras:

Thanks so much, PromisedHeartbrk! You're an awesome swap partner!

Yay! I received the most beautiful little coral snake from SammyLouise40 today!

Check this out:

He's so beautiful and shiny. I'm sorry the first one didn't make it, Sammy, but I really love this one. I appreciate your efforts, he's fantastic! Thank you.

I'm so excited! I received from IsikkahJai and I got lots of bunny goodness.

Here's an amazing bunny wall hanging made to look like stained glass. Such a cute and clever idea. I'm going to have to steal it.

Then I got the most adorable set of cards. The envelopes are sealed with origami, bejeweled bunny shapes and the cards are all hand drawn. I'm impressed with talent like this.

I think she managed to hit all the famous bunnies and bunny styles. What a great package to get. Thanks, IsikkahJai!

I'm so glad you and your girls like everything, Isi. I love the pic of the kids with the egg cozies.  Smiley

And I'm so happy you like the bunny hoop! We briefly had a little cottontail like that when I was a kid so I hoped you'd love that design as much as I do.

Looking forward to receiving my package Friday!

Here's the bunny right side up.  Smiley

I knew bunnies were fast but to make it all the way to Australia is awesome!  Smiley

Here's a cute bunny picture. I got it off the internet, I don't own it.

My craft is taking a little longer than expected but it's coming along.

I received the most wonderful package from emilywilde today. It's hard to hit all the favorites of someone when you have a list to work from, but she managed to do it.

First is a trapeze girl doll:

I absolutely love trapeze and she captured the litheness and elegance of the trapeze acrobats. The doll is made from cotton thread, such tiny, intricate stitches. She even has ears. I'm in awe! Her skirt is an antique hanky and her top is made of ribbon. She came with a hanger but I can't seem to get the "hang" of it. (See what I did there?  Grin)

Then I got a shadow box with my other circus favorites:

It says, "Life is a Circus" (so true). It has animal acts (a tiger and trained seal), the cutest tiny little knitted elephant (again, I can't believe the stitching craftsmanship), a fortune teller, a fortune, a strong man, a trapeze artist, an admission ticket, and a tiny little bear. This all brings back such fond memories of the circus. I couldn't be happier.

Thanks so much, Emily. You're an awesome swap partner!
