I can hear my mother's voice - "Well if your friends jumped off the Brooklyn bridge would you do it too?"
Okay - here we go!! I was lucky enough to get a day one in addition to my container! Look at all this awesome loot - and how completely amazing is this Halloween box??? I love it!!
And now for day one - a very cool little dia de los muertos guy to hang - he will be going on the inside of my front door!
Off to a great start Sed! Thank you!!DAY TWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
A cute little box with candy (gone) and a tiny bottle of MAGIC sprinkles - with a poetic little scrolled message. DAY 3
Is it completely immature of me that this swap has totally taken over my life and it's the first thing I think about in the morning?? I have to get up at 4 am for work so my routine has become...stagger to the kitchen, feed the dogs, make some coffee, open my present.
Today was a pair of very cool earrings - accompanied by M&Ms (which went very well with my coffee) - these are awesome!DAY FOUR!!
Cute little Halloween kitty rockin' out on his drum! LOL - he had a little mishap on his way to California - lost both arms and his glasses - hope I put him back together ok!!DAY FIVE!!
Check out this most awesome batty dotee! He is perfect - already hanging with the other dotees I've collected - Love him!
Okay - playing a little game of catch up with:DAY SIX!
another band member - this one playing his Halloween horn. Here he is next to the drummer from Day 4.
And then - Day Seven!!
Sederick had me cracking up with his explanation for this one. It is a TP cover made by his wife - the lovely shannonMB. It's really pretty darn cute!!DAY 8
Check out this cool little box! Looks pretty simple from the outside - right?
But when the light shines in from above...
Pretty cool - huh?DAY NINE!
Day 9 bumps my black cat band up to a trio. A guitar player has joined the crew. Don't tell the others - but he just might be my favorite! DAY 10!!
WOW - DAY 10 and I received the coolest Halloween bracelet ever!! I'm not sure one picture adequately shows all the amazing stuff on here, but I did my best to arrange it for the best view possible! I'll be wearing this everyday til Halloween! (Will I get in trouble if I wear it after Halloween?) DAY 11!!
I can't believe we're almost done! Only two days to go...I'll be sad without my morning present.
Well no disappointment today - another great sculpy creation from the talented Sederick - this time it's a set of spooky magnets...well okay - too cute to be spooky, DAY 12
Even though I had to get out of the house early this morning I made sure there was enough time for present opening! I really need a video clip for you to appreciate this little house The windows light up to reveeal the spooky inhabitants AND it plays Monster Mash! Too cute!DAY 13
Boo hoo! Last day and I'll be so sad not to have anything else to open!! This has been a lot of fun - a challenge as always, and has really put me in the spirit of things. Thanks Sederick for being a great partner and thanks to our wonderful organizers!!
And Sederick - don't apologize for candy on the last day - who doesn't like candy? My grandkids thought they'd hit the jackpot when they saw!
