2  Creature from the Black Lagoon sleep mask in Completed Projects by calixita on: October 18, 2016 05:23:29 PM
I made a sleep mask for my 13 Days of Halloween swap partner based on the Creature from the Black Lagoon.  It would have come out much better if I had better basic sewing and/or embroidery skills but I still thought it was kind of cute.

3  crocheted crow with holiday hats in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by calixita on: October 18, 2016 05:11:37 PM
I made my partner a crow friend for the mini 13 Days of Halloween swap.
Since it was a halloween swap, I also made her a witch's hat.

and a spring hat, so that the crow could stay out longer than Halloween on occasion.

This is the pattern I used for the crow.

I feel like a moron for placing it on my mantle like so
instead of hanging it!!!!!!!  I believe I mentioned I've been suffering from a lack of sleep!   Undecided
Of course, it looks so cool either way!!!  Even more beautiful in person!!  Thank you, KittyKill, for letting it go!!!

6  raven's skull pendent in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by calixita on: October 07, 2016 02:49:25 PM

sculpted from clay and painted to give it a marble effect.
Made for my partner in the mini 13 days of Halloween swap.
I'm still very much an amateur but I liked how it turned out.

Here's the inside of my fabulous journal!!  (I'm one of those computer morons and was unable to figure collage or a slideshow so forgive the overload of photos!)

Here are some favorites:

So many pockets and envelopes!  Cool images, purple feathers, doilies and skulls!!  More smaller images:

Plus Tarteaucitron sent me this unbelievable extra!  A ribcage pin!  It's so, so cool!  (plus a plastic spider and some extra glitter bats!)

Thank you so much, Tarteaucitron!!!  I love my amazing new journal!!!  And my wonderful pin!!!!  This has been so much fun!!!

I spent all weekend looking out for my package.  Finally today I got up on tiptoes and shoved my hand all the way to the bottom of my mail box, which is placed just freakishly high enough that I can't see the bottom for some reason, and sure enough I find a slip of paper crammed into the bottom that they tried to deliver on the 10th but they need my signature so now I have to go pick it up.  I could have had it a week ago!   Oh well.  It's in my hands now and it's amazing.  I took one quick photo at work.  .  This is just the cover with a beautiful doily and some of the sweet little bats scattered throughout!  Many more photos will be forthcoming.  Tarteaucitron did a wonderful job and I can't wait to show it off to you all!!

I plant my spooky flag here!
My goodies from the fabulous KittyKill!!!

DAY 13
A sweet altered birdhouse!  I love the spooky portraits and crows!

close up

Day 12

Today I opened an awesome candle melt/scent diffuser!!

and check out these scents!

I've already tried the "Mike Meyers" - fresh fallen leaves, fireside and vanilla bean.  I love Dia de los Muertos skulls and it's a beautiful addition to my kitchen!!  And will be staying year round!!

DAY 11

Today I opened the coolest Halloween ornaments!  A pretty witch's boot, cheeky pumpkin and dapper skeleton face!!!

DAY 10

I didn't see a package labeled "10" but then noticed that 2 were labeled "9".  Ha Ha!  I randomly chose one to open and found a glorious disembodied hand holding a spooky sign!!!!

I love the black fingernail polish!  So dramatic!  My mantel is starting to look so cool with it's decorations!!


Here he is!  The coolest (in a fabulous dorky way!) Halloween cat!!

Look at that face!

And the little skull in his hand!

I love him!!!


Today I opened a super pretty orange and black necklace!

I think the beads are Czech pressed glass which I love for it's vintage feel.  It's really a perfect Fall necklace!

day 8

Today's present was bulky and now I realize it was because it is of deep scientific import!  Check out my specimen box!!!

close ups:

My latin isn't what it once was (oh no wait!, I never learnt Latin!) but I think they're of the 'sharp toothed' variety pixie.
I'll cherish these very rare specimens!!

Day 6

I opened a brilliant monster wallet!!!

It's so cool!  Frankenstein on one side and the Mummy on the other.  


Today has been dark and rainy but luckily I got to open a present!!!!!!  I got a fabulous spider web!!!  complete with a sparkly spider!!!  The lighting doesn't do it justice!


You guys, this is the loveliest Frida Kahlo day of the dead doll ever!!

She's even ready with her paints to create another masterpiece!!  I love her!!!


Today is a truly sweet cross-stitched witch!

She's cooking up something spooky for Halloween!!  I love the little buttons decorating the side!!



Mike and Ike's vampire mix! (already broke into those bad boys!)  2 bags full of lollipops, gummy eyeballs, KitKats and more! and a wax mustache and wax vampire fangs!  Such fun!


last day - :-(
but what a day!

This is amazing embroidered pillow I unwrapped!!!

I absolutely love those creepy plague doctors and I absolutely love this pillow!!  And I'm so proud to have an example of KittyKill's fabulous embroidery skills!!!
Thank you so much for a wonderful swap, KittyKill!!
and here is a photo of my cat Loch sitting in the box, now bereft of Halloween goodies.

I came home after a long day to find my package of goodies from Wizards_pupil at my doorstep!!  What a nice surprise!

Here they are!

The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud.  The jacket blurb sounds intriguing and magical!  And my very own amulet necklace to go with it!

Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys.  straight off my to-read list!  I'm saving this one for my camping trip!  And a lovely knitted infinity scarf in the colors of the sea!  So cozy!

Til We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis.  I had given it a quick look while crafting for my partner and said to myself "You'll have to go back to that when you have the time".  Now I can quite easily!  It came with this sweet hoop (her second attempt as the dog ate her first one!  Pets can be trying sometimes, can't they?   Cheesy)!  Isn't the sleeping fox just adorable?  And I love the sun climbing over the hills!  It actually makes me think of The Little Prince a bit.

I also got a puffball bookmark and some wonderful teas as extras because every good reader needs refreshment and a marker for when we fall asleep reading!   Grin

Thank you so much for all my books and goodies, Wizards_pupil!!!  And thank you for organizing the swap!!!
