This was my package from DesignVigilante, which I freakin' loved!



I'm having a yarn seizure over this skein! It's a perfect blood red and she handspun this jem!



Blood spatter coasters! These are so pretty and I love the thoughtfulness of them and general hilarity!



Sorry I can't get this photo turned and that it's a bit blurry! She sent a Tunisian crocheted scarf that she hand dyed to look bloody when worn! Ha!

Action shot!




Ughhhhh, I'm dead!

Yay! I'm glad you liked everything! I was afraid it might have been too abstract and cheesy lol I'm glad you liked it though and I'd love to see what you make with the bloody yarn! Grin

Did you use vinegar and heat set it? and hand wash only?

Yep...it was sad how easily and quickly it washed right out. I finally gave up.

So after receiving from crumpet79, I have to say that I am completely embarrassed by the package that I sent, swap anxiety has hit hard.  Needless to say, I got a great package!

Group shot (bloody picture frame, candle holder, necklace, magnets (opening sequence), black bag and embroidery strip "Normal people are so hostile":


Black bag from group shot- inside of it


close up on awesome embroidery


Fabulous candle holder.  Was trying to figure out a craft that used the strings but was unsuccessful!  Happy to have this!


Fabulous picture frame, OMG I LOVE IT, my jaw literally dropped when I saw it!


Thank you thank you thank you!  I am in love with everything, so happy to have you in this swap!

Yay!  So glad you like it.  Smiley  I found those blood gels the very first time I went out shopping for supplies - which makes me grateful for Halloween decorations being up in stores obnoxiously early.  hehe.

Do not have swap anxiety - I'm really excited to see what you sent, although I'm heading out of town tomorrow morning so I'm probably going to have to wait until Wednesday when I get back into work to see it.  I'll try to be patient!

I received today! I immediately started taking pictures as I was opening things up and then my camera flashes "battery exhausted" and shuts itself down! oh noes! So I'll have to recharge my battery before I can finish taking pictures.

IN THE MEANTIME, just to hold you all over, check out one of the items I took a picture of using my laptop's webcam:

Yay, I'm glad you got my package!!!

And, man, I wish I'd gotten to use the stage blood I had! I was going to take those boxes I got and do blood slide boxes but the long and narrow ones they had at Michael's were not wide enough.

Good use of the blood though! Great packages!!!

Such great packages Smiley!

I especially love the blood colour on those coasters and the die on that scarf. And that picture frame is so creepy/cute too Cheesy!
Its so much fun to see what everyone came up with Smiley. I have a sense this is going to be a very epic gallery, guys Wink.

I received my package today - yay.  I love it, it's so entertaining!  I'm also a total dork and left the box at work (busy day catching up after being gone for a long weekend).  I'll have to bring it home and post pictures tomorrow night.  I'm sure you guys will get the same giggles from it as I did.  Thanks crazyda79!

I received my package from szuzu1969! I'm so amazed at what she came up with. I had the best stalker swap partner ever!

First, she crafted me bibs (just like little Harrison's) for my twin baby nephews:

(They're visiting their dad this week, but when they get back I'll be sure to have them model these.) I made her twin girls bibs as well, lol! I think it's a sign we were meant to be partners. Cheesy

Next in my package was...

...Hello Kitty Dexter keychain! I'm crazy about Hello Kitty, so this was amazing to pull out of the package. She/he is holding a scalpel and is wearing Dexter's kill suit! This will be an excellent addition to my Hello Kitty collection. :3

She also crafted me a...

SUPER AWESOME BRACELET!! It has one of my favorite Dexter quotes on it: "Wanna play?" Best of all, this bracelet glows in the dark! I'm really excited to wear this. Cheesy

The last thing in the package (and quite possibly my favorite part):

A freaking fantastic memo board. At first I thought szuzu was psychic because I have been wanting a memo board FOREVER, but then she reminded me I posted a memo board on my Wists. She might still be psychic, though--we both crafted bibs, after all! I'm so excited to hang my board on my wall. Check out that teeny police tape! And the doll parts! <3

Thanks for the wonderful crafts, szuzu1969! And thanks for organizing the swap, crazyda79! I had so much fun!

When I came home from a day exploring I found a big box on my doorstep. Turned out to be the package Spectrumsparksie had send me Cheesy. What a fast delivery that was  Cheesy!

And I love it to pieces! Thanks Spectrum, you are amazing  Cheesy!

Unfortunately my camera is acting funny (I cannot take pictures with flash), so I'll have to wait until there is better light tomorrow. I'll try to have photos up in the morning, though. 'Cause I can't wait to show off the pretties   Wink Cheesy!

Look at my lovely shiny package  Cheesy ;

First up... a cute set of magnets:

They look so prefessionally made.Very cool Smiley.

Next, a wonderful set of coasters!

I got two in use in my room already, and the others are in the livingroom for both my flatmate and me to use  Grin!

And last, but definitely not least.. an amazing set of cereal killer bowls!

I absolutely love them! So clever. And perfect for me, since I just moved to a new place and hardly have any tableware to call my own Smiley. And with my fave Dexter characters too!


And lets throw in a group shot to wrap it all up:


I told you it was good  Cheesy.

Thanks again, Spectrumsparksie!

Sorry I've been a slacker on getting these up. 

Here's my awesome package from crazyda79.  Smiley

Firstly a group shot.  She sent me a severed leg night lamp, a "bowl til you bleed" bowling bag, a mirror etched with the Miami skyline, a blood spatter pillow, and a "Slice Of Life" cutting board.



Some close ups of my loot!
I suspect this nightlight will be a huge hit in the office come Halloween.


This is the perfect size for a sock knitting project bag.


A close up of the etching on the mirror.  Sorry if it's a little blurry, the cat kept trying to stick his head in the shot.  Smiley


...and my personal favorite - the cutting board.  We are always short on cutting boards in our house so this is great!  I think I'll only use the back though cus I'm worried I'll mess up how the front looks.


Thanks so much - this was a great swap.

LOVE the cutting board! I think I have to make one of these now. Is it burned in or just drawn? I'm thinking I'll burn mine in. lol.

I have loved the whole gallery thus far. fabulous stuff! Smiley

I am so glad you love everything crumpet79!!  The cutting board is burned, figured it would last longer that way.  I thought you could use the other side to do the cutting on and have the boat as the nice side to show off when not in use.  Enjoy!

Suffer in your bloody bathtubs craftsters, I had Vanillyz for my partner and she rocked this swap.
It was hard to decide what my fave item was, but I am pretty sure it is this Dark Defender Scoodie. (Modelled nicely by my daughter, but she will never lay hands on it again!)

Or how about this tote?  Little scapel wound on the cheek for Dexter's slide collection.

And if that wasn't cool enough, check out the lining!

Vanillyz also sent a cool zippered pouch, (with Barbie pull), a creepy Barbie necklace and some a cool syringe pen and candy.



Thanks for being an awesome partner Vanillyz. xxx

Here is the frame and a t-shirt Jamie made for me. I love them both and are my favorites. My camera phone just does not like taking pictures so these were the only ones that came out decent.




Not pictured are the wonderful bookmarks that I simply love, a yellow crime scene t-shirt, and the awesome scarves.
Thanks again for a great package.


oops... Thanks Jamie.

Here are a few of the pictures I took of the stuff I sent Kraftykitonet. I forgot to take a picture of the scarves, bookmarks, and the [dexterorized] package itself. So I guess I am no help there. But here ya go:




The knife is a squeaker toy for her doggy. And the bear had stuffing oozing, but its to hard to see in the picture. (Also, I didn't have the heart to destroy the bear, Dexter would have been so disappointed.) But atleast now her kids can take it if they'd like! Smiley
