hawkeyes_girl and I like to rekindle our friendship every so often with an awesome exchange of heartfelt creativity. While I'm still toiling away on my package to her, I received this batch of wonderfulness in the mail from her the other day!

First off, these nature-y earrings that I absolutely love:



TWO batik fabric headbands:



A green t-shirt necklace:



A batik pouch and some incense:



Some tea that SHE MADE and I can't wait to try!



TWO bars of soap that, again, SHE MADE!! I think we need to swap every so often just so I can stay stocked up on her soap!



Some Pear Butter that...you guessed it, she MADE (lol). This looks SO delicious!



A cowl and hat set - These are so beautiful the pics don't do them justice. I'm going to wear these all winter, I love them so much!





A peace sign shirt that's brown - my fave color to wear - Action shot!



Another action shot!



And the one thing I was expecting - two sets of cloth pads!! I received a set from HG in our very first swap and was SO sad when I lost them last year. But HG was gracious enough to re-make me a set. One thin(er) and one thick (HG says they'll stop bullets, and I think she's right!).



Phew! Thanks so much, HG! As usual, you totally rock!! Now I gotta get my butt in gear on your package - you totally deserve some super awesomeness!!

Not to toot my own horn, but I also made the buttons on the cowl from rounds of cut wood by drilling them and sealing with Mod Podge.


You liked brown, hope you got enough! lol!

I don't even care if i get stuff in return, I had an absolute blast crafting for you!  Kiss

So I did our annual private Mini 13 days of Halloween swap with monkey_girl and here are all the super items she spoilled me with:

On the 1st day:
Handmade fingerless gloves (the skull one is my favourite) and two big packs of tea. Unfortunately I don't like those teas but my brother does. His luck!

7

On the 2nd day:
Two pin cushions (one saying You're totally awesome), two cute journals, a set of 4 crosstiched skull buttons (designed by her boyfriend) and a felt needle book with another skull cross stitch on it



On the 3rd day:
Vintage Horror movie poster cards plus stamped envelopes (made with handcarved stamps)



On the 4th day:
A patchwork scarf, a little pouch with stamps already known from the envelopes from day 3 and my favourite: a heart and a brain cameo.



close up of the cameos



On the 5th day:
A knitting book ans a crossstiched bookmark. monkey_girl likes the Nostradamus best, boyfriend the Freddy and my favourite is the cymbal monkey



an army of scary monkeys (I've read the Stephen King short story)



but this tentacle is pretty cool too



just like the bookmark



On the 6th :
A brain zombie jelly mold, gummie worms to adorn the jelly brain (as you might be able to imagine they did not make it to the jelly mold premiere) and handmade potholders with awesome fabric



On the 7th day:
A handstamped little tote with bats on it an a sweet bat stuffie



close up of the stuffie. It has one red and one blue button eye



On the 8th day:
A rad cross stitch kit and accompanying chocolate



close up again



On the 9th day (boyfriend day):
He gladly received a scarf from monkey_girls boyfriends favorite soccer team plus a nice skull mug



close up of the mug so you can hopefully see it




On the 10th day:
A zombie sleeping mask, another pouch (since you can never have too many  Wink) and three different mints in cool boxes. The zombie mints have "brain flavor". Gross!



On the 11th day:
A handstamped patchwork blanket (for watching Horror movies)



close up of the motifs



On the 12th day:
A skully gingerbread man cookie cutter/stamper plus icing (cool note: my partner in the regular craftster swap made me one of these out of felt)



On the last day  Cry:
A perfect sized nightmare before christmas purse and the most awesome socks with zombies and brains on it



the sockz:



Monkey_girl, thank you so much for all the amazing stuff and a fun swap. Till next year  Cheesy

I received some terrific Teesha Moore inspired patches from Megz1027. We thought they had  been lost in the mail  Cry  but they showed up back in Megz's mailbox. She sent them out again and they arrived safely this time.  Cheesy
I love the way these two compliment each other, such a great idea.

I love the simplicity of the beading on this one that delivers a color punch.


She also included a lanyard from her college. What a nice idea.

Thanks for swapping with me. I am so glad your work wasn't lost.
