Here is my house from Sonjaboo:

Wait.  Here is the sticker on the front of the package that made me laugh when I pulled it out of my mailbox.



Here is the house:




So...  I'm guessing the brickwork was created with embossing, but what is the material?
Thank you, Sonjaboo!

The back:

I love having a toad in my house!  The tree is solid and sticks out from the house.  It has a little crow (button) on it.  I'm digging the skull... sticker?  Is it a double sticker with a pop tab in between?
Thank you, KimmyLynne!

My package from I Sew Cute came today!



The sewn felt kitty hoop.


A closeup.


I looks like the mouth spells out "wow", which makes me lol.

Thank you, I Sew Cute!

Details of swap:
OTT (One Tiny Thing) swaps are based on the idea that you'll be crafting, literally, one tiny item. Tiny refers to the actual size of the item but even though it's small, it should be an item that is crafted with a high level of skill. If it's a simple/easy item for you to craft, try to embellish or perfect it to best represent your skills.

To celebrate October, the OVERALL theme of this swap will be the celebrations in October (Halloween, Samhain, Day of the Dead, Oktoberfest, Autumn in general, etc.)! Your five themes should be related to these.

In this swap, participants will have one partner.  Each partner will make and send out one tiny thing (see below for ideas on what constitutes as a tiny item) based on your five themes.  For example, if one of your themes is orange, your partner could make fancy orange earrings or a tiny orange ornament.  The tiny thing should fit within six square inches. If you need a couple inches wiggle room, that is okay.  This is a NO-EXTRAs swap. You can only send the item you craft and NOTHING else. If you do send extras, it will be noted in your feedback. This swap is intended to be low-stress.

After you have been approved, you are welcome to post your five themes in this thread. If you see someone's theme list and would like to craft for them, please feel free to PM me and let me know.  I cannot guarantee that you will be partnered with that person BUT I will absolutely take it into consideration during the pairing up.

Communication is important.  Failure to communicate will be reflected in your feedback.
It is your responsibility to:
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have sent
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have received
-post in this thread weekly (I'll ask a question each week)
-post photos of your received OTT in the gallery (unless you have agreed with your partner to have them post for you)

Is your item tiny?
pair of earrings     = tiny ----  jewelry set     = Not tiny
artist trading card  = tiny ----  8x10 drawing = Not tiny
small change purse  = tiny ---- clutch purse    = Not tiny
Bottom line:    4"x4" dimensions
      If the item "naturally" comes in a pair or a set (ie: earrings, stitch markers), that is okay.
      If you aren't sure if your idea is considered "tiny", please ask!

kittykill, I can give you a photo (not great quality) of just the fireplace.  Even the books on the mantle are old horror books... such as "Horror Times Ten".  Outdoors I seriously just have a Halloween flag and a small spider in a crocheted web.

Haroldlovesmaude asked me to post a photo of the OTT I sent to her.


I sent her Halloween Treats stitch markers.  Clockwise from top:  wrapped mini chocolate (based on Hershey's bars), popcorn ball (I used to receive these as a kid from my neighbor), candy corn, black gumdrop with sugar crystals and wrapped taffy.

Here is what hazelly sent to me:

It's a teensy-weensy doily!  Look at all of those tiny stitches she had to make!  She went to thirteen stores to try to find orange thread, but none of them had it.  I think it is beautiful.  I think that this year I will have it sitting out, but next year I'll craft a nice frame for it so I can have it hanging up.

Thank you, hazelly!

Here is the chunky house that I sent to TheSavoyTruffle, since she asked me to post a photo.



The inspiration for this chunky house was a "Greetings from..." postcard.  TheSavoyTruffle really liked the heads of Easter Island so I thought "what if they were having a party?"  The black crepe paper is supposed to be masks on their faces, but my husband says it doesn't translate like that.
