Without further ado, here is my awesome package from NH822:

First up.  The bag itself:


The details on it are simply amazing!  I can't even begin to imagine how to make a bag like this.  I swear, every time I look at it, I'm finding another new detail.  There's even a cute little rat (pin) scurrying up the shoulder strap!

Next up.  Awesome place mats.  Unless I'm wrong, they're hand-painted.  It's so great because I was just telling my husband I wanted to find Halloween place mats for the table.


Next we have a cute little cat.  He has the prettiest green eyes and cute little nose. 

He's already lurking amongst my other decorations on the bookshelf.

Next, my partner is so thoughtful.  She remembered that I mentioned I was disappointed that I wouldn't be at my new house for the first Halloween. So she made me a "Halloween2Go" Box.  I think I'll be taking this guy into work so I can get in the spirit all month long.

Outside:


Inside:


Finally, the most awesome thing ever:

I am in love with this necklace.  In fact, I actually wore it to work yesterday.  It looks so great I will probably end up wearing it all year long.

Close up of the pendant:


And finally, all my great "swag".  This is the part that I have to fight with the hubby over:

There's cute little earrings in there as well as some lip balm and a spooky double feature of House on Haunted Hill and The Last Man on Earth.  (Gotta love Vincent Price)  Also, no lie, as I was opening up the bag I told the hubby I was really craving pop rocks and no sooner said, that's what I pulled out of the bag!  It made my night.

Before I go, one last cute little close up of another goody:


I was so lucky for this swap.  Now off to stress about NH822's package!   Shocked

phew!  I was so worried that the bag style wouldn't be to your liking!!!  And THEN I worried and worried over the necklace.  I am relieved!!!!
I tried to draw the placemats to be similar to the table runner on your wist.  I used fabric paint and fabric markers.

So glad you liked everything Smiley  It was tough to part with that bag, BUT I received today and am completely loving my new bag!  Can't wait to start showing it off!  I'll try to post pics tomorrow.

I received an awesome package from lady leeann and am finally able to sit down and post!  I have seriously been carrying this everywhere and I've gotten TONS of compliments!  It is also big enough for me to slip a notebook (or coloring book) into.


I totally LOVE LOVE LOVE the cat on the front AND that the fabric sparkles a little bit!
Check out all the goodies inside!!



this little guy was opened first!   How cute is that?!?!?
(Forgive the messy background, we had just busted out the halloween decorations when the mail came)
Here he is with all his friends!

Leeann, I love the little witch, She is adorable!

these little boxes were wrapped with a ribbon and really cute!  Inside were candy bracelets and that kind of candy, which the kids snatched up right away.

Adorable note cards that I love.  Can't even decide a favorite!

Most delicious dark chocolate EVER!  Saved the wrapper I'm sure I can use it for something! 

And even more goodies!!!  I am in love with little frankie!!  I think I will make a pin out of him or something!  I am already using the fabric scrap for something Smiley
And finally the loveliest scarf, looks sort of spiderwebby!

Made my dd pose with it...she is such a ham.  lady leeann if you have a better pic please post, I'm not sure this one shows the detail very well.

There were also some snickers that the kids are still trying to get their hands on.
Thank you so much for an awesome swap!  I love all my goodies!
