When you say "tiny" mask you can't even imagine - it's so teeny and delicate, the "strings" on each end are one thin piece of crochet thread.  It's amazing.

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).

That book has to be one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. I am so green with envy over that book! I am also so inspired to make something like that for myself. I just have to say it is fabulous. Overwhelmingly fabulous.

There have been some truly amazing vintage coolness in this gallery!

One recipe that I wish I'd found for the book (from rabid.dust.bunny over in adult halloween recipe suggestions).  From Martha
Steward:  "gorgeous boiled eggs that she boils with blueberries and cracks the skin to make a spiderweb pattern".  Cool, huh?

I had SO much fun making this stuff.  The whole altered book/altered paper (pennant) thing was new to me.  Took FOREVER - I'm sure people who know how to do this are much faster and better.  But, all in all, I was super happy with the results, so took lots of pics.  For anyone interested, they're all at my photobucket account: http://s210.photobucket.com/albums/bb262/KarenLouiseM/Vintage%20Halloween%20Swap/Sent%20to%20Eirle/

babbettoo: I didn't photo every page, but here are some different ones. Front piece:

Intro Page w/pocket:

Dessert Foldout at End of Book:

Chips & Salsa (sorry for the fuzzy):

What a fun swap this was!

Wow, you did such a marvelous job on everything you did in your package. Unfortunately I could not access your photobucket to look at the rest of your pictures. Would really like a look at them. I just love the way you handled that project. Must've taken forever!

Oh, I'm sorry you couldn't get into it.  Would it work if you went to the main account:  http://s210.photobucket.com/albums/bb262/KarenLouiseM/

and then go through the folders to get to it?  The folder structure is:

Hey everybody!  Check out the cool stuff Liebschien sent me!  There is a great gravesite box made from a cigar box with clay and moss to make the graves, ribbon trim and inside are all sorts of neat goodies and a painted pumpkin box!


She also made a really cool pillow

These rad candy cones, they have strings to hang with, and fangs inside!

and last but not least, a really really cute cat doll!

Liebschien had been very patient, I am sending hers out soon...  sorry again I have taken so long.  Everything got here perfectly!  I really like too how she wrote me a note about how she made everything, the box had halloween decorations all over it when I got it, and everything was packaged seperately.  It was a real treat to open.  Also, she had stashed in the very bottom a frankenstein mask, with candy underneath Cheesy

How COOL!?!

Another great package! I love the little cat! It's so cute, yet so creepy at the same time.  Cheesy
