Love looking at all the pictures here- so much talent and lots of favorites in this swap Smiley

I got my huge package from my partner MBELLISH and I was blown away by the amount of beautiful work went into it!

First off the banner... THE BANNER!!! -lots of crochet edges and webs and embroidered panels and beautiful fabrics- it's absolutely perfect and it's like XL by swap sizing Cheesy

Then an awesome spooky picture frame with cool fabric and shadow drawings

And a fabulous little witch hat box that had homemade candies inisde! They're sooo yummy!

I also got very cool extras a great frankenstein candle and lollipops and even the note she sent me had burnt edges and looked great

... THANK YOU SO MUCH! You absolutely spoiled me! I had family from Europe visiting me with little kids for 2 weeks and I was very busy, so I figured I could handle 2 mediums, but I'm not that sure anymore Tongue ... I love my package and it is AWESOME!

That banner is awesome, but unfortunately the rest of your pictures aren't showing up. Can you try posting them again?

Ooh that banner is fabulous.  Love the crochet edges - what a great vintage touch.

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).

I recieved from mlheran on Saturday but I'm just now getting to posting pics (bad banana!!)  Forgive my crappy photos!

Anyway, I LOVE IT!!!!!  I forget all I mentioned in my questionnaire but I did mention ghouls and devils and dioramas and mlheran totally delivered!  It's something I'm going to keep forever!

A ghoulish cabinet!!!  The three figures stand on their own flanked by a giant devil head!

The drawer is almost my fourth favorite part (am I allowed to have four favorites?) with the vintage trick-or-treaters

All sides were decorated - mlhearn did a really, really -really- great job decoupaging the sides, it's so smooth and professional looking!  What's your secret???

But the best, best most awesome part happens when the lights go out.....


I think the light-up bit should be your trademark mlheran!  Thank you so much for making my first swap SUPER AWESOME!  And thanks kittykill for organizing!!! 


I love Zines!  Let's trade!
