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, we count down the days to halloween. you will open day 13 on October the 19th, day 12 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

Item requirements:
-13 items are required.
-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. If you dont take photos it will show in your feedback
-Other then that, what you make is up to you and your partner.
And most of all, have fun!
