I love those nesting dolls!  I've always wanted to make a set of those!  Where did you find yours?  Did you just paint over some regular ones or do that have blank ones somewhere?

I'm glad you like your replacement package.  I had fun making it all!  I'm so proud of my non-existent sewing skills!  ^_^

I had to clean off my incredibly craft strewn table so I could take pictures of your table runner before I sent it off.  That took quite a while!  All my ATC and painting supplies were cluttering it.

I call this spot!

I received, I received!!!  OMG!  I thought this day would never come!  My partner and I decided to open on the first, and since my package didn't come until today, I decided that I had a lot of catching up to do.  ^_^  I think I will only post a couple of a time, just to keep you all intrigued though.  So now, onto all the wonderful goodies I got from my amazing partner, audania1.

Here is all my wonderful days all in the box with the letter audania wrote me.  

And all my day out in a row!  Look at all that wonderful goodness!  I was sooooo excited to start opening!

DAY 13

Day 13 reporting for duty and awaiting opening!

Little containers that were cans that she re-purposed and added handles too that are sooo cute and full of candy.  My hubby was making impatient sounds and then when I passed over his he started to do a happy little humming ditty.  Weirdo.  I feel like I went trick-or-treating!

And part 2 is a freakin' adorable framed 8"x11", fabric-covered cork board with rubbery skull push pins.  The hubby really like the skulls, as do I!  I think I'm going to use it to display all the halloween ATC's I've been getting in my other swaps.  Perfect!!!

DAY 12
There was a note on these that said I should put them in the freezer.  I think my partner was worried about melting.  Chocolate covered cookies, oh my!  It doesn't look like there was any melting.  Washington is definitely not warm lately.  Its been pretty dreary and cold for the past couple of weeks.  They hubby and I were so full after dinner, that we haven't tried these yet, but they look divine!  We might have to get our cookie on tomorrow.

DAY 11
Beautifully decorated jars with different popcorn seasonings inside!  The "Frog's Breath" has Parmesan-ranch seasoning (I think this one will be my favorite!), "Deadly Nightshade" has pizza popcorn seasoning, and "Poison" has cinnamon chocolate popcorn seasoning.  Looks like the hubster and I have major popcorn eating in our future.

DAY 10
A jar to make Mocha Rum Balls!  Oooooooooo!  "A scruptuosly delicious treat for you and hubby to enjoy.  Happy Halloween!"  It certainly sounds delish!  I think I have the perfect rum for this.  Time to release the Kraken spiced rum!  hehe.


Pumpkins on tiles, and the big one in the middle have my husband and my wedding anniversary date on it (which is next weekend!  ack!)!  The pumpkins are so beautifully drawn!  They all have cork underneath so that they can be used as coasters and a trivet!  How cool!

Up close of the big pumpkin.


Looook!!!!!!  Wrist cuffs and a hat headband (which I am currently wearing as I write this, its actually pretty comfortable!)  Aren't they awesome!!

I'm so wearing wrist cuffs to work on halloween!  YAY YAY!

Its sparklie and fabulous!


A vintagy looking banner that says "Eat, Drink, and be Spooky" on it!  How cute!!!

Up close!  I love the images!


OMG!  Look at this apron!!!  So freaking cute!  I'm going to look so fabulous while I bake!


Beautifully crocheted HATS!  One for my husband, one for me, and a little pumpkin for our "awesome little person that is not here yet".  My husband and I are trying for a baby.  They are sooooo soft!  I cannot crochet, so I looooove when I get crocheted stuff!

For some reason I just couldn't get a non-blurry picture of my husband.  It was night and the living room is dimly lit, so I'm blaming it on that.  ^_^  Hubby told me to wear the headband and the hat at the same time.  I look smashing, don't I?


Pumpkin hair pins!  Aren't they beautiful!!!

Me wearing the poop out of 'em this morning.  They are so pretty!  (I'm in love with my Retro Camera app on my andriod <3  It takes such fun pictures!  Plus, I find it hard to hold my giant camera up and try to take pictures of myself.  Its waaaaay easier with a phone!  ^_^)


Cute little glass etched jars with (I believe) beach sand inside and yummy smelling tealight candles.  So cute!  There was four, but one didn't make the journey.  Sad!!  They are currently sitting on our entertainment center above our tv.  So cute!


Cinnamon and Chili hot chocolate mix!  What!  I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds amazing!  And chocolate covered spoons!  I can suck on them?  *puppy dog eyes*  FINE!  I will just stir them in the hot chocolate.  Psh.


Look at this!!!  Straight from my Wist, spooky tree wine glasses!  The postal service was a little hard on my package, so sadly only one made it.  But it is so lovely!!!


A beautiful candle holder with a pumpkin spice candle inside, which I can smell from here from its place on the entertainment center.  On the candle holder is a set of fall recipes.  They look so good!  I'm gonna have to try 'em out soon.

There is another extra, a cute little halloween decoration, but it needs to be fixed.  I'll post pictures of it as soon as that's done!

Ooo what a cool coffee painting!  Its like something that deserves a little frame!
2504  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Work Your Theme ATC Swap Round 1 Gallery on: September 11, 2011 09:40:35 AM
  Okay, confused. Did mintydawn do the demon or mastisbh? Was she inspired by, or did he paint it? If they live close enough to share ATC's I am so jealous. I don't know anyone near me that draws or sews. I am a lone crafter! Ha!

I believe they live in the same house.  ^_^  I got a message from mintdawn saying that mastisbh opened her mail.
2505  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Wall Art Swap 4 Gallery! on: September 08, 2011 09:49:23 AM
oh, jmiller!  So pretty!!!!  I wants to go to tapestrymlp's house and steal it!  ^_^  I love the swirly words, too!  So creative!
2506  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: 2011 r3 mini 13 days of Halloween(signups CLOSED. Send outs 25/9) on: September 08, 2011 06:47:38 AM
can you buy halloween wrapping paper?  Other than plain old black and orange?
well, i had a a partner who wrapped everything in candy corn themed tissue paper, but it ripped. it looked adorable though!other ideas are to put them in halloween goodie bags and staple them shut if they are small enough. you can also get cute trick or treat bags from the 99 cents store and put it in that and tie it closed. you can also buy plain wrapping paper and make it halloween themed with stamps. oriental trading has alot of items that would be good for this. hope ive helped!

I've been using black wrapping paper, and then spicing it up with halloween themed scrapbooking paper, fun ribbon, burlap, and gauze.  I had some Boo! tissue paper from last year, so I've been using that as well.  I also used a couple of plain gift bags, and put a little scrapbooking paper on it as well to cover up old logos, and it make it more halloweeny.

I'm gonna have to check out the dollar store for trick or treat bags, what a great idea!

yes, but do NOT set them on fire. I learned that from an ATC. LOL!!! Who made the zombies on fire ATC? I feel like I need to give them a shout out.

*gets her box of ATCs and starts looking through them* ah, here it is!  The flaming zombie card is from ... ACK, the back of the card isn't signed!!!  Ok, I will find it. 

After much searching through the galleries, the flaming zombie card I got was from Usagi-chan.  "DO NOT USE FIRE!  The only thing worse than undead hordes trying to eat your brain is undead hordes trying to eat your brain WHITE ON FIRE!"

I like the way you detailed that! Looks amazing!

Thanks, gozer!  This theme was the only one I was really struggling on.  I wasn't really sure what I was going to do, since I have nonexistent drawing skills.  Then I found that picture of two guys fighting in my Sherlock Holmes books and I knew I could alter it. 

That man is totally not going to make it out alive!
Oh for sure!  He dropped his only means of defense, a gun, which got cropped off the bottom of the picture.  Not that a gun would be too effective.  He needs a chainsaw.

I'm glad you like it CuriousCoffee!  Here is a right-side and upclose pic of the ATC.  ^_^

The picture was originally black and white.  I added watercolors to fill in and black and green chalk to distress the egdges.

I'm new to working with sculpey clay. with your tutorial I'm thinking I'd like to try making some.
That was my first time working with clay as well, and I really haven't done much with it since then.  So, it is a great beginning project!
