Happy October everyone! I can't wait to open everything!

I'll start with a photo of everything (I kept it in the box to keep my cat out of it):

Love the paper!

And a close up of the wrapped package


And inside were Scaries! They're a Canadian candy called Smarties, they're sort of like M&Ms. Mmm, chocolate!


Day 2: A gorgeous leather bag with zombies painted on it! I'm definitely using this bag forever now!


Day 3: A Jack Skellington face! The embroidery is perfect. I just watched the movie last night, so this was a lot of fun to wake up to.


Day 4: A glittery ornament. It was a little hard to get a picture because its so sparkly!


Day 5: Four gorgeous handmade cards. Again the glitter is a little hard to get a picture of, but theres a sparkly witch on the cover.

and the inside:


Day 6: Earrings. I'll admit when I first saw them I was like "oo, pretty" and took a pic. Then I looked closer, and saw that there were resistors strung between the hoops. They're amazingly perfect for my cyberpunk costume this year, and the color is perfect!


Day 7: A pretty silver "Create" bracelet


Day 8: Gorgeous hair flower!


Day 9: A HUGE roll of caution tape! This is going up everywhere!


Day 10: Gorgeous Steampunk scarf (I don't have an action shot, but its long and ruffly!)


Day 11: 3 sparkly green candle holders!:


Day 12: A Steampunk necklace! I have a pair of earrings that matches it perfectly, I'm going to wear this all the time!


Day 13: A green yarny hair fall. It reminds me of zombies! I can't get a good pic of it that doesn't just look like a yarn pile, I'll have my husband take a picture of it on later!

Thank you so much Sylvan, this was such a fun swap! I already can't wait until next year!

I'm glad you like it! The eyes are 3D printed, my husband printed them but we never ended up painting them so I figured I'd send them along anyway.

Now I get to show off my awesome package from bookstorebabe. She spoiled me! (I apologize for the not so great photos, my camera is MIA so we used my husbands phone...)

First, the whole thing:


My favorite part, a Khoshekh plush! He is adorable!


The spikes are very spikey


Awesome Erika collage:

(Much cooler IRL, I'll have to look harder for my camera to show it off in all its glory)

Bookmarks, 2 of them. They are super shiny

(Not sure why this one is sideways...)
And the back:


I also got this gorgeous necklace:


And finally, intern shirts for me and my husband:

You mentioned they need a little touching up but I think they're pretty awesome already!

As you can see we were very spoiled! Thank you so much!

Whether you want to decorate an entire Steampunk tree, complete with a clockwork tree, or if you would rather just add to your collection, you should join! We'll be making a set of ornaments (the goal right now is groups of 5, but this may change, and it will only be smaller if they do) and sending one ornament to each partner. These ornaments can be completely from scratch, or you can alter an existing ornament to look Steampunk.

Your ornaments can be sweat shop style (all the same) or each one can be unique. You should be making 5 or less in all, one for each partner and one for yourself.

It doesn't matter how big or small your ornament is, but keep in mind that it should be big enough to be admired on a tree (probably at least 3x3 if not a little bigger) and light enough to hang on a branch. If you have ornaments, look at those first to see what a good size would be! Beyond that, use your creativity to craft something your partners will love. They should also have something to hang them from! Take your time (we have over a month of crafting time) and have fun! This should be a low stress swap.

Further, if you don't celebrate Christmas, don't worry! This is a nondenominational ornament swap, so everyone is welcome! If you just want some pretty little trinkets to hang on the wall feel free to join.

Finally, I have the right to refuse anyone who has consistently late feedback or negatives. I'd love for this to be a flake free swap!

Finally I have some pictures to show (I really need to work on that...)

I received a skirt:



Look at how cute the little detail is of the TARDIS slowly appearing on it:



Some awesome bath salts, bubble bath, and I believe lip stuff all with my favorite ginger on it:



A don't blink sleep mask with more awesome embroidery:



Pencils that say "Fantastic" "Oncoming Storm" and "9 is my Doctor":



And magnets with 9's face on them:



Everything is awesome, thank you!

This one is mine! Now to post the amazing goodies I received from Hayleylujah!

Day 1:
Candy! And the box to show off the cute Halloween Duct Tape


Day 2:
A really cool book! I read a bunch of it at work today, its very cute.


Day 3:
A gorgeous knitted infinity cowl!


Day 4:
Two really cool altered potion bottles! One even had real dirt in it.


Day 5:
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (my favorite scary stories book) and a cool zombie book mark!


Day 6:
Three gorgeous hand painted candle holders! They came with little LED tea lights


Day 7:
Stenciled zombie shirt! Action shot since my fiance was there to take a pic


Day 8:
Gorgeous hand dyed yarn


Day 9:
An awesome skull banner... now I have to decide where to hang it!


Day 10:
Three book cover magnets, 3 little potion bottles, and a cool perler bead hair clip


Day 11:
Awesome hand painted box and sparkly pumpkin earrings


Day 12:
Kitty day! I got two hand knitted cat toys (a bone and a candy corn, a little hard to see in the picture) and a candy corn kitty collar. My cat usually doesn't like collars but she let me put this one on and she seemed to like it! She was sitting on the top of the piano and kept playing the "throw the toy off and have mommy get it game" for like ten minutes...


Day 13:
Baking stuff! I got cupcake liners and picks, a spatula, a whisk, cookie stencils, and really cool spider cupcake holders! I've wanted these forever!


Thank you for everything, it was an amazing swap!

Ok, I feel like a horrible partner, but I've been super busy and haven't had time to post pictures of my awesome package... however, I did manage to snap a few pictures. I'll try to get some action shots, but that requires my boyfriend to be home.

The whole package:

The thing on the top is an awesome zombie fighting jacket, the leather thing is a hip bag made from a fannie pack and a leather backpack! They both fit awesome and I hope to get those action shots so you can see!

Close up of the bullet shell and crystal necklace:

I've been coveting one of these for a long time!

And matching earrings!


Thanks for the awesome package!

Hi everyone! I wanted to thank you all again for a wonderful and stress free swap! Also, I have pictures finally... sorry for the delay!

First, deathbeforedishes' ornaments:



I can't quite decide, but I think the red one is my favorite.

and now, Harvey's ornaments:


Once again, can't really decide, but I love the tophat! She also sent me some chocolates, but they've been long gone... mmm...

Thanks again girls, my boyfriend loves them too! Also, I wanted to show off my awesome tree that we made... I bought a $20 tree from Target, and 5 cans of spray paint later (3 crappy copper ones that wouldn't spray right, one good copper, and a little bit of gold around the edges for shimmer) I had a beautiful copper tree, just like the ones they have for $170 for a little under $50. I love it! The only downside is that under the wrong lighting it looks like a dead tree more than a pretty copper one... but with the (super expensive, don't ask...) LED light strips my boyfriend used it looks really good. The lights are a bit different than the pictures now, he reprogrammed them to be lighter and different colors, but I haven't taken any new ones yet. Anyway, long story short, all of the ornaments from this swap and past ones are on the tree and they look awesome... along with some other things I've received in past swaps like a jet pack on the back and some other Steamy things!

With the flash:


Without the flash:


And the tree topper is a real top hat that my boyfriend wears sometimes...  Grin

A spot just for me! I can't wait to see all the delicious goodies already! Sorry for the delay, but here's the lovely package I received from Koreena!

The whole thing, look at all the corks!:


Delicious cookies:


This is blurrier than I realized, but on the left is "Salty Chocolate/Peanut Butter Chip with Pretzel cookies," which happen to be the same ones I sent her (they look completely different... according to pinterest I didn't use enough flour?), and the ones on the right are "Peanut butter chocolate pies" which I loved too! Neither of them lasted very long... if you look closely at the first picture you can see a hole... she had packed it full but my BF and I dug in as soon as we opened it!


And a close up of the extra, a really cool airship ornament:


Thanks again, I loved everything!
