Cackle and I met today for lunch and to swap packages. Here's a photo of both of our hauls. Woo hoo! We decided to start opening on October 1st instead of the 19th. That way, we have all month to enjoy our goodies. I love Halloween!Day 1
Here's my container. It's a craft supply! A Graphic 45 alterable box with a magnetic closure. And some skeleton salad tongs! I can't wait to make something awesome with this box.
And what' inside?? It's a surprise, but here's a teaser picture.
I'll post the entire thing as soon as I'm able.
Thank you so much, cackle. I already LOVE this swap!Day 2
Crafting supplies! It's one of the things I asked for.
I got those awesome Alpha Stamps gravestone ATC blanks, 3D Halloween stickers, scary coasters and some awesome trim (I need trim). Love it all!Day 3
Fabric! And not just fabric, awesome Halloween fabric that I've never even seen before and love. The two are very different from each other and I love them both. Careful, cackle, you may end up with something made from these next year! Day 4
Gypsies! Not just one... five of them. These are going on permanent display. Day 5
Today's goodie... Jack O'Lantern baking molds! But... I won't be using these for baking, they're gonna make some awesome bars of soap. Day 6
I'm pretty sure I can't post a photo just yet of my day 6 goodie, but it's awesome. Standing by!
Halloween supplies! Nesting coffin boxes, tiny gold jack o'lanterns, tiny orange pom pom trim (can't wait to find a use for this), and plastic glow in the dark maggots (everything is better when it glows in the dark!)Day 8
Today is a dark and dreary rainy day, hard to photograph this in it's glory. This is the most beautiful chunky house I've ever seen. Seriously. I photographed it inside it's container because that's a craft supply, a chipboard box that opens like a matchbox.
Here's a photo of just the house. It's got a fantastic polymer clay tree behind it, and the door opens to a spooky stairwell. I am so honored to have received this! Day 9
Nope. Don't think I can show you this one yet, either. But it's my favorite.
I'll post a phtoto when I can. Day 10
Eep! Zombie tarot cards! I didn't know these even existed, and now they live with me! Day 11
Fantastic craft supplies and some awesome Halloween ornaments. I've had my eye on this paper for a while! Thanks so much, cackle!
Candy dayDay 13
I received the most stunning vintage looking raven. It's holding a bat in it's beak. Just perfect! We had to put it up high because our cat Bindi thought the hanging bat was a cat toy.
The base is so cheerfully painted. I love it! Thank you so much, cackle. Day 13 3/4
Jealous? Actually, it's a day for my hubby.
He got his very own Halloween chunky house. It looks awesome in the spooky neighborhood currently set up in our dining room! Thanks so much!An extra!
Cackle just delivered the most amazing decorated shortbread cookies to my house. They are over six inches in diameter, here's a close up of the spiderweb...
The vintage style jack o'lantern...
And the haunted house (love the bats!) Thank you so much, cackle!!! I can't wait to try them. Is it time for dessert yet??Days 1, 6 & 9 (finally)
I can now post what I received on days 1, 6 & 9. Trick or treat potion bottles with poseable skeletons! The reason I couldn't post before is they were just featured in a guest blog post. Aren't they cool?!! They're made with chipboard potion bottles, cool papers, labels, plastic skeletons and a bunch of other cool stuff.
