That moon and bat are wicked cool...but I must ask...What is a prim exactly?  As far as I can tell from googling it is "an excessive decoration" or "tightly pursed lips" or several other definitions meaning "proper" or "prissy".  Just wondering what the crafty definition is Grin

Hey darlin', I believe 'prim' is short for primitive.  Grin  But don't take my word for it....I used to think it was short for primate. Or some kind of cocktail that makes one act like a monkey.........

I love the moon man, he is wonderful.

AAaahhh!  That makes much more sense then "prissy" etc.  Thanks a bunch Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

My husband was confused by "prim" as well.  He doesn't think it fits at all.
Primitives to me are simple designs using simple crafting techniques, or at least making it look simple even if the process took really long.  They're kind of faded and employ objects like rusted wire and other vintage ephemera.
At least, that's what they're like to me.

It makes sense once it was pointed out...but at first all I could think of was "prim and proper", which is the compleat opposite.  But that is the fun of the English language Grin

Yes, prim is short for primitive. I like making more complicated prims, but they tend to stay in that category because they are grubbied or distressed. I'm not into the extreme primitives, but love the grubby, old look.

Yes!  Looking up primitive Halloween online gave a variety of what people described as a prim.  One craft I saw I would have described as "country folk art" rather than prim.  It starts to blur a bit.

According to USPS my partner and I should both receive tomorrow.   Grin  (Although I'm not sure I believe them - here package was last checked in on the opposite coast of where she lives - I hate it when they backwards!)

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

Here is my great loot from CDEeeek!!!

First, a Piggly Wiggly bag!  We don't have those here and I collect pigs!!



A vintage owl potholder and a cool cat shaped vintage noisemaker!  I love these!!  My principal already told me to "Can it!" with my new clang-clang!!  Apparently, he is not in the Halloween spirit yet!   Cheesy


A paper and wood halloween-y version of my name- grasshopper!!!



The snappiest little paper covered boxes!


One had buttons, one had a TV charm with an owl picture and the other had a old clown figurine and a tiny black cat!


Three hangings made out of paper plates!  These are hanging in my office here at school!!


AND, some chocolate (YUM!!!) and bangle-ly, jangle-ly bracelets!  Plus, an itty-bitty card making kit!!


I am sorry my photography skills are pretty crappy!  I tried to take off the date stamps and couldn't figure it out.  (I am not having a technology-friendly day today!) 

I love all of my stuff!!  You did great, CDEeeek!!

The time has come

To talk of many things-
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax-
Of cabbages and kings.
And why the sea is boiling hot
And whether pigs have wings.

I am glad you liked them, grasshopper. I had a lot of fun making them! And it's flattering that you have them up at school. Glad we swapped, it was a lot of fun having you for a partner!

This swap is SO quiet!  Is everyone in a candy corn coma? Wink

Anyway.  I got the best package from LittleNutBrownSquirrel.  It's a nice Halloween book - and then you open it and it's a really wonderful, detailed Halloween-scape.  The banner is made of teeny, tiny fabric pennants all sewn together.  The cat is paper clay (hard to believe it's the first time she's used it) and the candy corn is also clay.



And the best part - this amazing little cat (he fell in transit but I think I put him back in the right place - sitting on the fence like a proper Halloween cat). She's definitely got some mad painting skills.


She was a great stalker.  I completely love it!
