The last gift to open! So sad! I will be watching the gallery for those who chose to open later! My partner blew me away with a wonderful piece of art! The detail is amazing. It appears to be oils but under the glass I can not feel it to be sure. I know wideeyedlife does some amazing drawings and uses colored pencils too. I am so honored to own a peice of her art!
Here we go again! I love all the clay pieces that I have received but these are truly special. Look at all the deatil from the hourglass on the table to the teeny candle with flame. The sexy witch in the chair, the cat Stanley, and her vampire frien who is transforming into a bat! Amazing!!!!! Thank you wideeyedlife for asking me to partner with you, I have had a blast and will cherish all my goodies for years to come!!!!DAY 12
My partner sent me a wonderful cornhusk maid. So sad, my two dogs destroyed it while I was in the shower. Darn it they are worse than kids! This was an extra not made by wideeyedlife or I would have been in tears. I so wish i would have gotten a picture before it became somthing my dogs that was theirs to tear apart. The plant stake was also an extra. Then inside this cute tin what could it be?
I was blown away once again from the talent my partner has with clay. Yes I said clay. Wideeyedlife took an inspiration from my pinterest and ran with it! I am so glad that she did. She put 6 hours into this incredibly detailed brooch! I hope the pictures do it justice. It is amazing I love it!!!
This is not set into a metal piece, it is all clay. Just look at all the details so much to see!DAY 11
Today was more fantastic clay creations that I will be adding as charms to my Halloween tree. I am amazed at the detail on these tiny creations. Mine would not be recognizable.
Wideeyedlife uses small pins and such to create the detail. She found inspiration on my pinterest and I couldn't be happier! The frog is my favorite! So detailed and frogs hold a special meaning to me! The cute wooden plaque was an added extra that she picked up.
So sad that there are only 2 days left to open but super excited to!DAY 10
I love this ! It was one of wideeyedlife's hubby's favorites, so glad he did not claim it for himself! Wideeyedlife found this cross stitch and upcycled it. It just looks like it was meant to be this from the begining! As wideeyedlife put it:she got freaky excited when she found an upcycling use for this cross-stitch that someone spent a freaking forever making it! I love it! Thank you for such a wonderful and cute welcome sign, looks like part of her black jeans left from the purse, helped to decorate the frame. You are amazing with upcyclying!DAY 9
Todays gift was a cute BOO magnet made from poly clay! The little ghosts are so cute!
Althought the extra was not handmade its freakishly adoreable. A cornhusk skeleton!DAY 8
Today's items come with a story that I would like to share so that everyone can see the love and time that went into todays gift! I am so blown away by the size of these and all of the details!!!! (If I would have tried this all I would of come up with is a big blob of ooppss! Wideeyedlife your talent amazes me!
This is Hank, the Halloween demi-urge, and his cohort in Halloweeny-ness, Larry (that's the yellow spotted one). Together the two of them control the granting of all Halloween wishes.
Sadly, they are overworked and underpaid. As in, it's just the two of them, there are two many wishes and no one gives them anything for their hard work each year. On top of that, all of their usual cohorts have run off. Apparently the Easter Bunny provides his holiday workers dental and health insurance, as well as happy happy joy joy promises and holiday cheer. (So if you run into a bunch of cackling witches and zombies next Easter, hiding among the fuzzy chicks, bunny rabbits, and other cuddly creatures, now you'll know why.)
Right now, it's just the two of them managing all the wishes in their magic Halloween bag. And the penguin. He wandered in from Christmas, and liked Halloween too much to want to go back.
I hear Hank is looking for helpers, so if you want to join his party, just watch for him on Halloween night and offer your services.)
Now to introduce you to the gang!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have a clay project planned but now I am really intimidated!!!!!
Wideeyedlife your skills blow me away, thanks for such wonderful treasure's!!! DAY 7
Today was a trip down memory lane for me. The moose that was the package decoration is actually a key chain that opens up in the back to hold change. Win Win!!!!! The cute vintage books are so cute. The smaller one is a magic window book that when the pages are slid open the items becomes colored! The other book is written from an animals point of view and I am an avid reader so this will be a fun read I am sure!!! Wideeyedlife included a cute polyclay bookmark. Just love this, the small detail is perfect!!!!! DAY 6
wideeyed life sent me some amazing poly clay pieces from my pinterest. I love these and have appropriately named them Frankie and Stien............
I love all the detail that are in these and never make such detailed items in clay, but need to try!
Wideeyedlife suggested that they would be cute on a tree like I sent to her and I really like that idea. When I am not using them on a chain aroung my neck this will happen. I think I may glue some thread to the back of the boo houses and add them as well. Also included a cute keychain. I remember doing this years ago and how fun it was.
Here is a group shot of the cute skelton that adorned the package and a few extras!DAY 5
Let me feature the black blob!!!! I took my gift to work to open and thought I got a good picture! NOT Problem is my black blob is at work and I am off until Tuesday so a new picture to come!!! This is so cute, the small tree twig holds a banner, which is blurry in the picture and you can't see the small nails. There is a moon, a black bird and in the left corner a black blob, befriending a scarecrow!!!!!! Love wideeyedlife's take on things. DAY 4
I so wish I would have taken my package with me this morning, then I could have wore this cute little fellow all day! But there ia always tomorrow!!!! A clever way to creat a pin. This cute burlap scarecrown was tuned into a pin. It screams fall. Also included were 2 super cute clay owls. These will be so cool on a chain hanging around my neck! I love funky jewelry.DAY 3
Just look at the cute tag that came off this package!!! And what was inside as wideeyedlife put it "sweety treeties and lovely snackies! All favorites of mine!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gosh this is so fun!!!!!!DAY 2
This is too funny and being from the state of Texas I love it! I can tell wideeyedlife had a blast making this it is so funky and cool! It is a cowaleen countdown! The cow is dressed to party in his too cool outfit! What an imagination! From slippers to his bonnet and his big bug eye! So funny! He has a halloween banner made from beads balloons in the background and is screaming party party party!!!! I just love this fella. He has round discs to remove as you count down the days until the 31st or cowaleen and the last day has a cow head covered in a sheet (a cow ghost) saying Happy Cowaleen! will post a picture later as we go. The small plastic (possibly barbie purse opens to hold each day as you remove them from their peg! Happy Cowaleen Ya'll
I feel totally spoiled with my container and love it, a tote! But not just any tote it is recycled from a bustea top or dress (I think). Wideeyedlife said she put in over 20 hours and I can see why! It is so durable and well made. Stiff to hold its shape, the perfect size and color! I love the hook and eye closures, the lacing and it looks like a corset. It also appears to be both hand and machine sewn! Made with heavy denim and a brocade. The zipper work and has a hidden pocket. I sew and know this was a bugger to make, and so me!!!!!!! I have still been carring a white and silver purse but not tomorrow this is gonna be my new bag!
When I opened my box I totally forgot that the container was suppose to hold our presents! Wideeyedlife and I decided to play catch up and open days 1 thru 3. So when I tore into day 1 I found more presents so hence another group shot!
Here is my up-cycled loot! I love the decorations and the moose, aw a favorite of mine. Waiting to see if wideeyedlife is ready to begin unwrapping!!!!
