Sylvie,  the sugar skulls usually aren't edible but that's simply due to the handling and the non edible things on it. There is nothing toxic in them, so if you want to eat them I wouldn't put the sequins on them, since I have no idea what they used in making them. But the sugar skulls themselves are sugar, meringue powder and a little bit of water.

Sylvie, You have no idea how funny that is! LOL!

I have opened yesterday and today's package but I wasn't able to take a picture as My Little Pirate(tm) swiped my SD card. I had to dig it out from under the couch! Thankfully he only batted it around and it works just fine. (He only chews things that taste 'tingly'. Like the power cord to the modem, ethernet cable... etc.)

I'm so glad you liked the skeleton candy! I saw that in the store and I HAD to get it.  Grin

I'll be posting pictures later today.

Oh Sylvie! our pictures came out much better than mine did for those earrings! I'm glad you liked them!

I forgot how fun Shrinky Dinks is!

I love ground cinnamon in my CP soaps! It doesn't really sniff like cinnamon but it's just slightly abrasive and a gorgeous color! It's great for FOs or EOs that will turn brown in CP since it's going to end up brown anyway.

I also have done a gorgeous swirl with ground cinnamon putting the vanilla scent in the swirl part.

I claim this space in the name of the Nautilus*! I can do that... I have a flag!

OK so I don't get home and stuff till close to 11:30 pm EST so I'll be a touch late in posting pics. With that said, here are the pics:

DAY 1:

First we have the box as it looked when I opened it... severed arm and all! :-)


Here we have the package minus the arm:



What did I find when I opened the package? See for your selves:

The front:


and the back:


After I unpacked the tote, Zero side:


Unpacked Jack and Sally side:


I LOVE THE TOTE! Thank you Sylvie!!

DAY 2:

On day 2 I got a wonderful Sugar Skull Ornament!

The Skull spins in the ornament and it's really cool! Sorry for the craptastic pictures, but the best pictures were with the flash. I couldn't get a pic without the glare.

The front of the Skull:


The back:


DAY 3:

Candy Corn and chapstick!


DAY 4:

Hair Clips! They are awesome! And considering I have 3 1/2 feet of hair they will come in handy on Halloween.



DAY 5:

Chocolate! A yummy looking chocolate maple leaf!



Day 6:

MOUSIES!! For my cats! They LOVE these!



As you can see there is a little Terrorist Mousie, and a Pirate mousie! One of my cats has the nick name of My Little Terrorist(tm) for two reasons, one when I first got him he had ummmm intestinal issues and could clear out a room, I was pretty sure I'd found the WMDs... they were in my cat, he is also the most destructive cat I've ever owned. Really. It's a very good thing he's cute and lovable, cause he's not all that graceful. The other is My Little Pirate(tm) cause she likes to steal my stuff.

DAY 7:

Pirate earrings!




They are awesome! Hee!

DAY 8:

A Bat Necklace!



Sylvie, I don't like this... I LOVE IT!!! It's Gorgeous! I'm going to be wearing it to work tomorrow/today!

DAY 9:

A zombie feotus kit!!



A grow skeleton and a label for zombie foetus poison... the cat has stolen the highlighter, I'll have to fish it out.

The label:


I have every intention of putting the skeleton in a gallon jug with a spigot and keeping it on my bar.

DAY 10:

A gorgeous picture, really, please excuse my craptastic pics, it is MUCH nicer in person. I couldn't get a pic without the glare.


DAY 11:

Candle and awesome candle holders!



DAY 12:
 An Edward Gorey Box! I love it!




DAY 13:

Vampire Stuff!!

A set of fake fangs, a fang necklace and candy blood!



I thought this was hysterical, I can't say any more till Sylvie opens/posts her stuff.

*gamer reference, pathetic as that is. Me = geek

I'm almost set to mail out, I'm hoping it will be tomorrow, if not then it will be on Sat morning. I had a wee bit of a crisis here, and everything thing got delayed a slight bit. Thankfully, not too badly or anything serious. So my package will be sent out at the absolute latest Sat, but I'm hoping it will be tomorrow.

i found this today:
http://www.beadjewelrymaking.com/halloween_specials.html
and it makes me so mad! if i had found it earlier i would have made them for my partner Sad
well, in case some of you havent finished and are still at a loss of what to make, here you go!

MAN I was looking for stuff like that too! Those are cool!

In other news, I thought I might have to send out late thanks to the high humidity levels keeping me from sealing some stuff, but the humidity broke today and all are sealed, dried, wrapped, numbered and in the box!

I need to pick up a few things and then I'll be shipping the box out on the 2nd!

sylvieonabun, I really hope you like the stuff!

I have a few more days to put finishing touches on and pick up a few things at the stores this weekend and I should be done! YAY!! I've been having a blast! Grin

I'm actually working on about 4 things at once! EEK! But I have to wait for things to dry and stuff. I'm still trying to figure out how to get parts of one day (which I think will be the one for Halloween it's self , not sure yet) and how to get it shipped safely!

Speaking of which, I almost forgot a few things I have to do! ACK! LOL I can get those done today and should be able to assemble stuff in a day or so... the tough one is the final gift. Need to think more on it.

As for a 24 hours craft store.. I'd LOVE that! Our 24 hours wally world is a bit lacking in the craft department.  Angry
