I received the best package in the world from Starfaerie!  It is going to be a quirky zombie Christmas for me!  Grin

Sorry the pictures are so small, I don't know what I did wrong.

First we have a zombie stocking!  It has a little pocket on the inside for the zombie bears!



The zombie bears


A set of greeting cards.  I haven't decided if I am going to give them away or be greedy and keep them for myself  Cheesy








Wonderful glass ornaments, in my favorite colors.  Can't wait to get a tree!  Some are glittery, some have stitches and some have eyeballs!


Thank you so much, Starfaerie!  You were an great partner, you made some truly awesome things!  Love Love Love everything!

Well, I can't figure out how to do a screen shot, but if you are using the craftster photo hosting, after you upload your photos and select the one you want to put in your post, make sure you copy from the first or top option, not the second or bottom one.  I doubt I'm making any sense, sorry, Tongue  This stuff does look cool and quirky but I'm having trouble seeing them....<sniff>  I want to know what the cards say!   Cheesy

I am so glad you liked everything!  I saw all the zombie goodies on your wist and was inspired.  I'll tell you a secret:  I didn't glitter the ornaments myself. haha.  So, to anyone who wants black x-mas ornaments...check out wal mart. 


I can post bigger pictures if need be, but I'm not sure if you can read the cards in my pictures either.

Also, the ornaments are actually plastic.  I really wanted to do glass, but i got incredibly worried about them breaking in transit.  These are "shatterproof" plastic that look just like glass.

Oh wow!  I was wondering how they didn't shatter in the envelope, I was thinking the post office was just being gentle  Cheesy.  They really look like glass though.

Edit:  My husband saved the day, the pictures are bigger, yay!  Check it out
I will see if my husband can help me fix the pictures (he's tech savvy).  I want you guys to see the cards, you'll get a real kick out of them.  By the way, I showed them to my husband, he liked them and thinks we should keep them and hang them on the wall, so I like that idea.

Oh no!  The nativity scene broke!   Sad  It's supposed to be one round piece... Dang it all! I guess some E6000 glue would help?  I'm sorry about that!  I'm glad you like everything though.

I also received today from VinceNoir  Cheesy  I love it all!   You did great on your first swap - you should be proud of yourself!

First is a table runner for my mini Nightmare Before Christmas tree.  It's the exact perfect size to sit atop my bookcase!  Sorry the tree itself isn't in the picture - I'd have to dig it out of hiding and I didn't want to wait to take pictures.



Next is a zombie Santa!  Haha, this is awesome...  He's the absolute perfect coloring for a zombie.  But what *really* cracked me up was his sack of death!!!  LOL!




And here's the part that's going to make everyone uber-jealous...

My very own OOGIE BOOGIE!!!  I love it all, but this stuffie takes the cake!  He's PERFECT.  Embroidery boggles my mind so I'm tre impressed with the bugs and stitches  Smiley  I don't think I'll be putting him away after Christmas though.  I need to cuddle him all year round!



And here's the whole lot, plus the cute card she sent  Smiley  Oggie Boggie is turned around so you can see the embroidery on the back.



THANKS VinceNoir!

I am glad you liked everything. I was super nervous about the table runner....fabric markers and fleece do not mix... santa was my favorite. oogie boogie was supposed to be a tree topper but I couldnt quite perfect that one.
