...so I decided to post a teaser pic of my package for TracyinNH. Cheesy

Spookshowbaby77 sent me this AMAZING package!  First up, the cutest little vampire ever.  My husband loves this!



Behind door number 2.  A very hip and eco friendly Team Eric bag which may make me the envy of all the other Pathmark shoppers.  I really like this because it is practical and crafty! The divine Ms. Kerry also made the cutest necklace based on the book pics of Sookie.  I have been a Sookie fan for several years now so this makes me happy!!!



And here is my absolute favorite thing Kerry sent these True Blood mugs!  They came out so great and I am bringing the one with the fangs to work on Monday.  I have a habit of hissing at people when I am annoyed and I think this mug will complete that look perfectly (please excuse my messy counter!)!!!



Thank you so much Kerry!!!

I'm so glad you liked your package, dancingqueen73!

If you like the vampire, I got the pattern here (she also has a zombie, mummy and ninja - very cute):

I was really pleased with how the mugs came out - it was my first time using porcelain markers, so I was a little nervous.

I love the mugs, and I double love the necklace!  I received a text from my darling mother about an hour ago that said my package was delivered.  She sent me a pic of the package next to her boot so I could see the size reference.

I can not wait until 5 oclock to race to her house to get my package.  I'll now have something to keep me happy during rush hour traffic!

I received from Wyked! I actually received I think two days ago, but my life's been nuts Smiley

Ta Da.....



My whole enchilada.  I love the brown knit (or crochet?) bag.  It was fun, each bag had a bag/pouch inside so I just kept opening!
The little fang dude was cute, and the cats stole him and the knit candy piece.  The bracelet is perfectly my colors, and it is her first one she made ever!  Next to the bracelet is a little red pouch with the coolest charms from my Wists!  I've got pics of the charms and bracelet:





Thank you Wyked!!

They are crochet, I have enough trouble with one hook let alone attempting two Wink. Cheesy I thought it would be a neat idea to make a pill form of "V" and a little blood candy to keep with the theme, hehe.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your package, I was a bit worried my items weren't enough. Good to see everything arrived safely!


..Those mugs, the cross stitch and everything is great!! I can't wait to see everyone else's goodies. Consider me a swap addict Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I received my package from VinceNoir today!


First up is a needlepoint of the True Blood poster/DVD cover


Next we have an apron.  I love the fabric used, VinceNoir put my favorite quote on the bottom..."I wanna do bad things with you" from the opening credits song.  Sorry if you can't see that well in the pictures.  I had to use my cell phone, my camera won't upload to this computer for some reason.





Lastly, we have two wrist warmers, and a choker.  I believe all were crocheted...correct me if I'm wrong.


P.S. Please ignore any weird items in he background, such as choclate bars, recipes, purses, or coat hoods...these were taken on my kitchen table...which tends to be very messy!

Yay! I received today from MollieMoo and I feel like I was spoiled! I kinda wish I had done some more stuff specifically to True Blood now, but I'm just glad Tracy liked her things hehe...and now..onto the LOOT!! Warning: Excitedness cause Picture Heavyness!

I am such a dork, I have progress pictures...hehe

Voila! Your package has arrived!



A True Blood themed personal mirror! Oddly, I have no mirrors in my room at the moment so this is perfect!


What is this? Sookie hiding in the bottom right corner of the mirror?? The picture doesn't do this justice but the best I could come up with!


And another?? Yes, yes it's Bill hanging out on the left side of the mirror!



The next item I unwrapped were these bowls that were made with a purpose! In my letter from MollieMoo she explains what the colors of the bowls represent!
Black and Red is for Sookie & Bill, Yellow is for Tara, Purple for Lafayette (and what better color to suit him!), Blue is for Jason and a little Brown added for Sam.

I must say I couldn't have picked better myself, as you can see in the pictures they are also adorned with small round metal buttons.  Cheesy Grin Grin Cheesy First is the smaller bowl, then larger.




And a group shot for size comparison!


Phew, I was absolutely giddy by this point, happily tossing paper and plastic filling everywhere and what do I find at the bottom? True Blood MAGNETS!! 10 of them!! They came out beautifully and I would love to learn how to make these.


And finally, a group shot of all my True Bloody Goodyness.


I am just completely in awe of everything, they are so well done and just Killer! Thank you SO VERY MUCH MollieMoo for making my first swap fantastic!!


A special thank you to Spookshowbaby for organizing this swap, it has been a wonderful experience and I can't wait to swap more. Cheesy

Wow! Great swap packages everybody!

I received an amazing package from dancingqueen73! I apologize in advance for having to use the flash to take pictures; but if I didn't I'd have to wait days to post...and I can't wait to show off my fabulous loot!

First, a bloody lovely handkerchief embroidered with my initials and blood drops:


Second, these awesome pillowcases - embroidered with the TruBlood logo (and a few super-cute extras):


Third, two dishtowels stolen from Merlotte's and Fangtasia! Seriously, dancingqueen73's embroidery skills are beyond fabulous:


Thank you so much, I love everything!!! Grin

The vampire mouth is a magnet.  I wanted to make it a pin, but it's one of my first clay items and i didn't think to make the back flat for the pin. 

The calendar has all different pics for each month, but the one she showed is my favorite photo Smiley

Is it just me, or could anyone else not get the color red out of their head??  I wanted to make the bag, and kept picking up deep red fabrics, so I used red inside and found the gorgeous black asian style satin.
