ShaynaYasha, what a beautiful package!  Nice way to rock the theme. 

Notecards with rivets at the top, great idea.  All of the images you chose are really great. 

I looked all over for good images of treat bags (and/or actual treat bags).  Love the one you found.  I have such fond memories of those things - when trick or treating a bag meant a lot more goodies! 

And I would have been all over those charms, what a find!

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

So, I keep getting online to see how far along Eirle's package is on its way to her.  But, I never thought to check on mine, until this morning.

And it said "delivered".  Boy was I surprised, so I went outside and looked around, and there it was.  I guess my mail person doesn't knock when she leaves a package anymore.

And what a package it is!  It's really fabulous.  I could not have picked anything I would like better. 

Adorable figurine (which I'm pretty sure I was looking at and thinking about getting myself), two microscope slide necklaces (reversible), fabulous vintage apron, notecards (will anyone be worthy of these?) and my favorite, an amazing crochet doily.  Which doesn't begin to describe its wonderfulness.  She is definitely a super hooker!!  If Eirle likes her package half as well, I'll be very pleased.

Wow -- that devil bag is awesome! And I love the wine charms. Oh, and the coasters -- they're so amazing. I might have to make some. What did you use for the base, k^2? It's all great stuff!

I'm so glad that my partner got her package and likes it!!!

KarenLouiseM, do you want me to post pictures? I have some but they're not that great. (I took them at night before I packaged everything.) I hope that one day the package you sent me will leave Denver. Right not so sure...

Actually, I made the package for k^2.  I made the coasters using very thin, flexible cork sheets, attached the images using spray adhesive & polycoated until I was seeing double.  You can pick those cork sheets up at your local Michaels or craft store.

Oh, sorry ShaynaYasha! I guess I'm not a very good reader!! Smiley

Well, your work is awesome. I wouldn't have thought of using cork as the base. I think I'm going to have to try these. Smiley

Thanks for the details!

Edit - sorry, pics now fixed.  I re-org'd my photobucket account and forgot about this link. 

Hey Eirle - your package is at least in your state now!  Making progress.

But on to my package  Grin At holiday time, my daughter always looks at everyone else's haul, laughs, and said how glad she is she gets "her" gifts not anyone else's.  Wink

As much as I LOVE what everyone sent, I have to say I feel just like my daughter, Eirle sent me the package that was meant for me!

Sorry for the blur.  Eirle, if you have a better pic of this, post it!  This is a fabulous Halloween apron made "over" a vintage apron from her grandmother - but so well done my husband thought it was purchased.


Next, Halloween figurine - SO cute!!


Then, amazing notecards, two of each.  (Again, my spouse thought they'd been purchased.)  Only trouble with these is that I won't be able to part with them to send to anyone.


My first microscope slide pendants.  Already hanging in my windows - because I don't think they should only be seen when being worn!




And (drumroll please) this amazing crocheted doily:


(Spoon shown for size) I can't believe how delicate this is.  I am in awe of those teeny, tiny little stitches (are they stitches in crochet?).  The pic doesn't do it justice, as the stitches in the dark parts look solid.  They're not.  Beautiful teeny tiny lacy design.  It is SO gorgeous. 

I waited to post photos until today because I had to clean off my kitchen table (other swap in progress), so that I could have an action shot:
