My partner lvl0rg4n and I met up yesterday to exchange packages.  It was so nice to actually meet up with a fellow Craftster.  I stupidly didn't take any photos of her with the stuff I made her or with the stuff she made me!  Oops.  Anyway here's the loot
Poly clay fang earrings


A charm bracelet that I love

my favorite charm


Poly clay fang pendant, I can't wait to wear it next weekend


All the jewelry came in this coffin


She hand painted this bag for me.  I love the saying!


And I forgot to take a photo of the outside of this box.  It has a cross, a bloody handprint, and blood drops.  It's my very own Vampire hunting kit!!!!!!
The lid has a list of my vampire kills, maps, stakes, and a German bible

Inside there are stakes, vampire killing tools, and lots of wax sealed jars with fangs, and salt, holy water, ashes, etc.


Thanks so much!!!!!!!

I LOVE that charm bracelet! I have always been crazy envious of people who can make loaded charm bracelets.

I'm so glad you liked everything, Lindy.
I had a GREAT time meeting up with you yesterday!

I really loved making the box. I actually found an artists box at Michaels that had a pallet thing with it for 7.99! I originally bought a vintage suit case from Goodwill that I had painted to look like old leather, but it was huge and it smelled inside, lol. I made up stories the entire time I worked on the vampire hunter kit. The man who owned the kit had a wife, Elizabeth, who he loved dearly. She was turned and he had to kill her. In one of the compartments of his box, he has her ashes and her wedding ring. He tries not to look at it, of course. He also kept souvenirs of his kills - he has a bunch of vampire teeth in another jar. Of course he carried around the important stuff - crushed garlic, holy water, consecrated earth, and purified salt. He had 2 stakes that he used a mallet with, but he preferred getting up close and personal by using "old faithful" which is a handheld stake. I used the maps from the back of the bible and put them all up on the inside of the box. I only felt a little blasphemous once during the whole process lol.

Charm bracelets are a pain in the hind end! I love them, but mind never look as classy as other peoples. Lindy showed me the secret of the nice loop at the top, though. Circle tip pliers things! I'm going to get ahold of some and hope my charm bracelet skills get better.

I'll be posting pictures soon of my loot from Ms Lindy.

I just received my awesome swap package from Rainya!

She sent me a cool purse made out of a hard back cover of Eclipse, a keychain with three vials containing "Holy Water, Liquid Silver, and Vampire Blood," a wooden jewelry box featuring a painted vampire bite graphic, a smaller keychain with vampire themed key words, and my favorite part of all... Sigmund! an amigurumi stuffed penguin...because I collect stuffed penguins just like Anita Blake.

Thank you, lady! I love everything, especially Sigmund!

Here's my loot:

I'm gonna go cuddle with Sigmund now!

Thanks again, Rainya!

Okay, so totally just stalking this gallery...
But oh my gosh! Was the copy of "Eclipse" hurt in the making of that purse?
Isn't that like... Blasphemy?
