I have receiveth! Actually, I got my package from Jonnamarco last Thursday, but my internet was out until last night. I was so blown away by how gorgeous everything was and how tailored it was to my likes and dislikes. Like I told Jonnamarco, I showed everything to my best friend and she said "Wow, it's almost as if she KNOWS you!" So strange. Here are the goods!
This is what everything looked like once unwrapped. A beautiful orange and black rainbow:
The first close-up. A mini paganistic/samhain diorama with the vintage devil-men and witch. I love all the detail (the hay and little pumpkin on top and the teeny little tombstones). I'm not sure what the "ground" is made of, but it's awesome.
An adorable pumpkin statue. I love this little guy so much, and especially all the polka-dots. Don't know if you can tell from the picture, but his witch hat is glittery.
And finally, the big kahuna. I was oohing and ahhing ALL afternoon after I opened this Halloween shrine. Here's a picture of the outside (closed book):
Notice the creepy skeleton hand on top. So awesome.
And for the spine of the "book":
And finally, for the inside...
I love everything that Jonnamarco sent me, but this was just the icing on the cake. Check out that owl/moon picture (with a real mini wooden frame!), the teeny tiny bookshelf with strategically placed books, the mini black cat, and the witch/crystal ball. I think the crystal ball might be a marble?
There was also a paper skull banner included in my package, along with some rad Halloween stickers (you can see these in the main picture).
I'm thrilled with my package, Jonnamarco and can't thank you enough for your hard work! I hope you like your gifts, too!
P.S. If any of you like listening to podcasts while you craft, I've got the perfect one to suggest. It's vintage and spooky, just like this swap! You can download it free through iTunes (or you can get it at relicradio.com); it's called The Horror (Old Time Radio). Vincent Price narrates one of the episodes, and they're so creepy. Very Twilight Zone-ish. The intro music is the best part.
