Details of swap:
Do you love Halloween? Do you love opening presents? Did you want to do the 13 days of Halloween but couldn't because of money issues? If you answered yes to any of those questions then this may be the swap for you! This swap is a mini 13 days of Halloween swap. Instead of opening all your presents at once like in other swaps, we count down the days to halloween. you will open day 13 on October the 19th, day 12 on October the 20th and so on until halloween. When the gallery goes up you will reserve yourself a mini gallery and as you open your parcels each day you will post a pic of your item in your gallery


Item requirements:
-13 items are required.
-You should try to give at least 6-7 items that are crafted. These can be up-cycled items as well as items made from scratch.
-The first item to be opened (on October 19th) will be a container/bag of some sort that holds the other items. You can either make a container/ bag from scratch, or decorate one, your choice.
-1 item/day will be candy/food (preferably timed so your partner can enjoy a yummy treat before the big day). If your partner cannot eat candy, you could make a candy-related item instead (say a candy shaped polyclay pendant, a bag made from candy fabric etc etc).
-spoiling is fine, either by adding more items or making items bigger then the small requirement, so long as you and your partner agree on it. just remember, if your sending international it may get expensive.
-This swap will require photos in the gallery(its half the fun of the swap!), you might want to ask your partner to take some photos of their items before they send just in case your camera packs up. If you dont take photos it will show in your feedback
-Other then that, what you make is up to you and your partner.
And most of all, have fun!

13  COOKING / Dessert / sundae-look-a-like cupcakes (my first cupcakes) on: November 23, 2009 07:35:23 PM
iu was going to make a star trek cake for my birthday but didnt have time, so found a really great website that has great recipes. i found this recipe online ( http://www.wilton.com/idea/Soft-serve-swirl-cupcakes ) and decided to modify it and make my own cupcakes for my birthday last week Cheesy. they were cute, but not too cute, if you know what i mean lol

i made up a lemon cake mix, and baked in cupcake pattys.
i then made a chocolate buttercream icing and piped it onto the cupcakes to look like soft serve.
 i then broke some candy canes and stuck them into the cakes to look like straws.
just before serving, i topped the cupcakes with whipped cream and sprinkles, and then added a jaffa (an orange- chocolate ball covered in a crispy shell) to the top to look like a cherry.

it didnt take me all that long to make them and decorate and people seemed to like them (they all went lol)

ok, onto pics!!(not all cakes shown)




it was my first time doing proper piping too


please c & c
14  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / first ever sugar skulls + halloween/day of the dead shrine. 8 pics on: October 19, 2009 07:38:10 PM
a couple of months ago for a multicultural art thing at school i made sugar skulls. im posting them now because its almost halloween/ day of the dead time! yay. (forgive my old looking craft table lol)

these sugar skulls arent traditional, and arent the best ever i know, but i like them :)plus they didnt break, which almost never happens when i first try something! lol

i used this recipe
http://mexicansugarskull.com/sugar_skulls/instructions.html
i already had molds at school, but the same place(as the recipe) also sells molds
http://mexicansugarskull.com/sugar_skulls/index.html
then i just made up a royal icing recipe for the outside(the blue and big one). the other i just used glitter glue lol(i kinda like it. its more zombie-ish lol)




now this one i made just recently for a more halloweeney shrine for metal vyxen(she said i could post a pic) it isnt quite complete, but i like it so far. maybe people have suggestions??
the skull is made like the others, but has little gems and sequins on it too. the background is tissue paper with skully scatters glued on. and a little charm bat
i bought the skeleton at a 2 dollar store and cut it in half then glued it to the box. maybe ill put fake grass or dirt around it? the pumpkin is like a little lantern in its hand.
the other side shows candy. a bottle of filled with small handmade polyclay donuts(im going to add a ribbon around the cork), a "nano" style chupachup (strawberry and cream flavour),a warhead(sour candy) and some mini candy skulls.





everything in the shrine is shiny because i put acrylic sealant on it.


c&c welcome!
