I feel so guilty about being late especially after the amazing 80's themed package from NH822

The box had the neatest pac-man screen painted across the front with little plushy pac-man and ghosties inside.

Here's a great shot. There's a fabric with the front and back of Papa Smurf, Smurf temporary tattoos, two grow a creature packages of a penguin and a skeleton which is catered to the taste of each son, a bat man silly band, an E.T. pin which I am totally in love with, needled felted pin and bear, a barrel of monkeys keychain with little mini monkeys inside, Keep Calm Smurf On framed picture which came directly from my wist or pininterest, buttons, wooden peg dolls, jewelry parts, a bracelet ring, vintage pins, stones and bobbles, a mini sombrero, lots of goodies, and last but not least, Papa Smurf's cupboard full of little tiny miniatures.

Here is a close up of cupboard with all the beautiful clay things inside. I'd also like to add that each item was nicely bag with labels. Each item directly correlated with something that Papa Smurf used or would have had in his cupboard from the cartoon.

Here is what each item was labeled: potions, magic dust, a wand, magic mirror, Jokey's gift, bucket with mushrooms, a secret ingredient, fool's gold for fooling Gargamel, a piece of an amulet, a wishing stone, a spell book, magic ingredients, and, of course, smurf berries.

I met Miss Barbara in our last Ongoing Holiday Swap. Instead of responding to the list, I contacted her directly about what I could make off her list then had to write back and explain my confusion. Anyway, to make a long story short, we decided that we'd do a personal swap so we could make all the wonderful goodies for each other. Since we were involved in the other swap as well, we gave ourselves a long creating time which allowed both of us to continuously add to it. 

I was so completely blown away by all the MANY crocheted items she made for me. (Also, in the ongoing holiday swap, she also made the neatest little gnome and a fleece tinkerbelle blanket with a crochet lining)

Here is what was included in our personal swap: penguin, kirby, web blanket for my Spidery fan, two large towels with crocheted flap to button on the oven door, LOTS of pot holders, and LOTS of various types of scrubbies. I love scrubbies.

Isn't that blanket impressive!

SCORE!! Check out all the loot. Thanks again Miss Barbara!

Here is the beautiful artwork that dfabbric sent me. She painted each member of my family their favorite superhero.

Shazam has been my husband's favorite character since he was little mainly because when Shazam isn't Shazam, he's just a young boy. My husband is now a social worker who works with kids and he likes using the inside every child is a superhero metaphor in his work.

Wonder Woman is my favorite.

My two boys love Batman and Robin. This year, my six year old is dressing as Robin for Halloween. My eight year old was Batman last year. They are both very excited to be included in the swap and they love their new pieces of artwork.

Until we get them frame, they are propped up on the mantel next to our superhero statues and pop heroes.

Thanks again dfabbric! You are awesome and you made everyone in my house feel special.

I went a little picture crazy but I just didn't want you to miss anything. Plus there were so many goodies in the bag that Sarah (sarahelise) sent me.

First, here is the bag. It has the greatest vintage style children trick or treating images which are some of my favorite Halloween designs. I'm not sure how she knew that but I do love those old fashion card images. Around the midsection of the bag is a pom-pom like trim with orange and black stripe upper lining and the straps are nice and thick and sturdy. I love this bag.

Here are some of the goodies inside. There is a great autumn colored crocheted trivet, set of four handmade napkins which match the bag, two kitchen towels (my son almost stole the spider one), a candle, pumpkin ice tray (which I'm going to use for soap making), a beautiful glittery black skull bangle, and last but not least the neatest little handmade fabric rose brooch. 

And the goodies go on! If that wasn't enough, Sarah also made a candy corn hat from my wist list. I wore it today on this cold fall afternoon and got so many compliments from random people while other just smiled. I love a hat that spreads joy! Also pictured is a sticker set, pencils, a cat memo pad, Ghirardelli caramel and chocolate candy, a snickers bar (my ultimate weakness), and a huge bag of twizzlers.

She also included two handmade bags with my boys names on them full of skittles, starburst, chocolate eyes (which the boys were all over. Sarah must understand the boy mind.) and a crocheted bat for each boy.

Here are the boys enjoying their goodies after they got home from school

And just for fun, this is me sporting all my new Halloween goodies: the bracelet, bag, hat, and rose brooch.You can't see the top of my head but the hat has a little point at the top.

Here is the bag I made Sarahelise for the Fill a Trick or Treat Bag Swap. It was fun filling the bag with goodies too. Fortunately, I found the pattern on her Wist list by LadyBeta on Etsy.

116  Stitched Stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by Helena Puck on: October 04, 2011 02:27:27 PM
I made this little guy for the Ongoing Holiday Swap. I claimed a Stitch ornament and designed the pattern using PCStitch software. He's stitched on 14 count perforated paper.

 I'm really happy with him. I was concerned about the ears because the inside really contrasted with the body but once I outlined the outside in blue, it worked out very nicely.

And, I was even happy with the back.

I just received the blanket MissBarbara made:

It's a fleece Tinkerbell blanket with bright blue crocheted edges. It's beautiful!

Thanks again!

Sorry for the long delay in posting the pictures. My in-laws had my camera and I have been waiting for my lightbox.

Here is what Miss Barbara sent me - gnome for my father-in-law

Thanks again! He looks awesome. He'll be a wonderful more personalized addition to his gift basket.

Here is what TroubleT sent me - a penguin for my son and some yummy goodies, peach jam and apple butter that the whole family has been enjoying. We recently moved to a little farm house and my husband has been randomly singing "moving to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches." Needless to say, he was tickled to see we now have peach jam.

Thanks again for an amazing swap!

To get a better look at the picture, here is the scan of the sketch Illiamdra made for me. My pictures just did not give it justice.

Thanks again Illiamdra

Here is what I received yesterday from Illiamdra. Thankfully, she told me to wear the shirt and the corset together. They look awesome. And, my husband says its super hot.

Here's the back

Here is the group shot

There's a set of four napkins, a black pirate flag, an octopus embellished mirror compact, and embellished framed with original pencil Pirates of the Caribbean artwork.

Here is the flag. My husband is already finding a place in the house to hang it too. Please excuse my comfy retro chair background.

Here are the napkins. I actually needed some napkins too. I think I had a couple sets on my wist list. I just love these. I love too how each item has the same skull and cross bones pattern, the corset, the flag, and napkins. All, nicely matching. It makes me want to have a pirate party in the near future.

And now for the beautiful sketch. I'm afraid the photograph doesn't do it justice. In the center is Jack Sparrow, half his face is a skull. On the side is Davy Jones and Calypso and on the other side is a mermaid. I love mermaids. Stretched cross the bottom is a octopus.

Here are some close ups

In our living room, we have a lighthouse picture, photos from our trip to the Outer Banks, a picture of me hang gliding, and a map of the sunken ships off the coast. This beautiful Pirate picture finds its home on that same wall.

Thanks again Illiamdra for all the goodies.
