1  Re: Vintage Halloween Swap Gallery (Send Out 9/25) in The Swap Gallery by KarenLouiseM on: October 02, 2013 01:08:16 PM
GREAT package from Banga!!!!

Lovely Halloween ephemera - Mystery is sheet music.  So cute. 

A set of Halloween stamps - these will definitely show up in a future swap craft!

And, the ultimate - the best - the most amazing - fantastically wonderful piece of artwork.  My dog Maxwell dressed as a warlock for Halloween.  This picture is definitely not as great as the original. It has a lot more depth and detail that you can see in person. Seriously, you can't even imagine how awesome it is in person.  I totally, totally love it.

I have received the MOST wonderful package from goatgoddess.  Wowza!  Can't believe she managed to do so much while she had so many other distractions in her life. 


Lovely shrine, clay ghost hanger (will definitely go on the chain pull for the ceiling fan next year), truly amazing bag, bottle labels (makes me actually want to give wine away, just so I can use such clever labels), bag of goodies and cute, cute, cute wall hangings.

Inside of shrine, looks like it was inspired by how much I love Day of the Dead stuff.  Table is decorated with goodies and ghost.

Can't wait to put these up:

And my favorite.  This bag is wonderful.  You can't really see the details of how quilted it all is and how wonderfully beaded.  Love, love, love it.

Thanks so much goatgoddess!

This swap is SO quiet!  Is everyone in a candy corn coma? Wink

Anyway.  I got the best package from LittleNutBrownSquir rel.  It's a nice Halloween book - and then you open it and it's a really wonderful, detailed Halloween-scape.  The banner is made of teeny, tiny fabric pennants all sewn together.  The cat is paper clay (hard to believe it's the first time she's used it) and the candy corn is also clay.

And the best part - this amazing little cat (he fell in transit but I think I put him back in the right place - sitting on the fence like a proper Halloween cat). She's definitely got some mad painting skills.

She was a great stalker.  I completely love it!

Argh - so sorry.  I've been absent for a while and am super late posting these great pics.  I got a wonderful package from DanniQuee.  The quality of her work is just amazing - I know it won't come across as well in photos but I am telling you it is awesome.

A great shrine which will go on my "Day of the Dead" shelf and be up all year long and a gorgeous altered book.

Shrine opened: 



and all the wonderful pages: 

I wanted to be able to show you all the wonderful pages, hence the clickable tiny pics.

Thanks to everyone who said nice things about what I made.  I feel very fortunate to have been in this swap so many times, the things people make are always so great and it's great to be part of such a talented group. 

For the people who asked the fabric is Michael Miller - there are two different colors - one has a cream colored background the other one is orange - both have black silhouettes.  It is super cute fabric.  DanniQuee had it on her Wist and I found it on eBay.  I was kind of sad that it turned out it took more fabric than I thought and I don't know if I have enough left to make one for me Wink

Did a fun little summer swap over at Jenny's blog "Everyday is a Holiday".  I have finally figured out how to do those eyepin/bead things - yippee!

(Still stink at photographing glass though!)

9  Vintage Vacation Scrapbook & Suitcase in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by KarenLouiseM on: July 08, 2010 02:14:17 PM
I did a vintage vacation swap over at Jenny's blog "Everyday is a Holiday".  (I'm in love with the sweet vintage look of their art.)  One of the things I did was this "vintage" suitcase with old looking labels and tags and a scrapbook with a vintage travel bingo cover and interior pages from "greetings from. . ." postcards, old travel ephemera, etc.

Had so much fun doing this!

Thanks - I can't believe I actually made it!  Whis is pretty much what everyone in the class kept saying.  She is an awesome teacher.

Found a photo of the Santa: 

I definitely recommend Jenny's classes!
