All of my goodies from EdelC!
Some fun and fancy straws as extras (we share a love of cocktail hour!)
There was also some chocolate but that is long gone! Hee Hee!Day 1:
an awesome skeleton fabric pouch containing Halloween cookie cutters!! The pouch is going straight to my craft corner to help me organize! I love the fabric!Day 2
on Day 2, I found the cutest skull pouch.
And when opened, it contained sweet vintage Halloween magnets and more chocolate. Yum! It''s as if you knew that the other chocolate bars had already been consumed! Day 3
I asked for some mini ornaments for my small Halloween tree and boy, did EdelC deliver!!!!
First up is a wonderful trick or treat bag!
Mmmmmm! Candy! and a pumpkin carving knife!
Then I opened a wonderful Dia de los Muertos ornament!
Such lovely designs painted on the face, glittery eyes and white teeth! I love it!
And last to be opened but I think it's my favorite is a wonderfully detailed haunted house!
A cute ghost is peeking out the front window.
And a bloody trail out the back door to a fresh grave! The roof came a bit loose in transit but a bit of glue will fix that easy peasy.
Here's my decorated tree!
I'm definitely getting into a Halloween mood now!!!Day 4 (already!?)
Another awesome pouch! (these pouches are going to help me get more organized, something I really need!!) I adore the Mexican skull on the flowery background! It even has skulls inside!
And inside, 2 fabulous bangle bracelets with skull charms! I love their funky look!
My goodness, I love this swap!Day 5
I'm opening my presents promptly when I get home form my evening shift job! It's technically first thing in the morning at 1am!
Today, I unwrapped a wonderful little shrine!! I love miniature things!
A wonderful graveyard scene crawling with sweet spiders! I have a mild obsession with old cemeteries!
close up. I love the spooky moon in the background!
The pedestal and the back are decorated with spiderwebs!
It has taken up residence next to my festive Halloween tree!Day 6
Day 6 answers the question: whatever happened to Count Dracula?
I unwrapped an elegant coffin.
Once opened, a dapperly attired skeleton with a wicked stake in his heart and a rope of garlic to prevent his return to un-natural life!! So so cool!!Day 7
I opened the most beautiful spooky bunting tonight!
and it's 2 sided! on the other side, anatomical hearts!
(forgive the pictures. My living room is currently in flux!)
Truly beautiful! And once I get my living room in order, it will have a better setting!Day 8
My cup runneth over with awesome pouches!!!
This one is perfect for taking projects to work! I love the colors!! Day of the Dead skulls never fail to make me smile!!Day 9
Today's package was soft and when I opened it - behold!!
fabulous pillow covers!
Such wonderful crow and feather images! I'm in love. Please tell us how you created them, Edel. I'm assuming you printed the fabric yourself and it's beautifully done. I should dig out my iron to do them justice but frankly it's too late right now and I was in a hurry to show them off! I love the beautiful crows and these will be on display year round, not just in the Halloween season! They work so well in the brown and green colors of my living room!Day 10
More Dia de los Muertos goodness!!! Today I opened a beautiful table runner!!
This picture shows off the back as well as the cool skeleton images. So colorful!
The only shot of my new table runner that the cat didn't completely ruin!Day 11
I got the most fantastic painting for Day 11! Edel recreated a wonderful image of Nosferatu from my Pinterest. I love it so much!!
I love his ratty face and creepy long fingers and the blood splatters at the bottom! He is so awesome! You've got mad skills, EdelC!!Day 12
Today I opened a fantastically sweet tshirt adorned with Jack Skellington! It's wonderful! So soft too! Day 13
Alas, the last day! But I've enjoyed opening such wonderful presents over these last 13 days!
And today's is wonderful!
A beautiful and spooky handmade journal!
It's made out of soft, buttery suede and has such lovely, curious eyes peering out at me!

I love the patchwork! And the paper inside is wonderfully thick! What a wonderful way to close out this fabulous swap!!! Thank you so much, EdelC!! You've been such a fantastic partner for this swap!!!
