Details of swap:
Do you love Halloween? Do you love opening presents? Did you want to do the 13 days of Halloween but couldn't because of money issues? If you answered yes to any of those questions then this may be the swap for you! This swap is a mini 13 days of Halloween swap. Instead of opening all your presents at once like in other swaps, you will open the first on October the 19th, the second on October the 20th and so on until halloween. When the gallery goes up you will reserve yourself a mini gallery and as you open your parcels each day you will post a pic of your item in your gallery (example in next post)

Item requirements:
-13 small items are required. (that is, each of the 13 items is under $10 to buy or under an hour to make) 1 for each day.
-You should try to give at least 6-7 items that are crafted. These can be up-cycled items as well as items made from scratch.
-The first item to be opened (on October 19th) will be a container/bag of some sort that holds the other items. You can either make a container/ bag from scratch, or decorate one, your choice.
-1 item/day will be candy/food (preferably timed so your partner can enjoy a yummy treat before the big day). If your partner cannot eat candy, you could make a candy-related item instead (say a candy shaped polyclay pendant, a bag made from candy fabric etc etc).
-spoiling is fine, either by adding more items or making items bigger then the small requirement, so long as you and your partner agree on it. just remember, if your sending international it may get expensive.
-This swap will require photos in the gallery(its half the fun of the swap!), you might want to ask your partner to take some photos of their items before they send just in case your camera packs up.
-Other then that, what you make is up to you and your partner.
And most of all, have fun!

ooOooOoo I would really like this to be my first swap (I've angeled, but no actual swap action), but I can't officially sign up until the 20th, so I hope there's still a spot!  I'm going to lurk and drool and make a general zombie-like nuisance of myself until then though.  Wink
