The gallery just keeps getting better and better.  I'll have to remember to come back and look at it when I start crafting for next Halloween, it's so inspiring.

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).

Sorry about the delay, y'all, but here is the bundle of rad I received from kittykill...



That's riiiiight...I now own 2 AMAZING cross stitch pieces of Frankie and his bride Smiley I couldn't get a good pic, but...there are glow in the dark elements to it!!!!!! The white strip in her hair, his bolts, and his stitches all glow, and it is the coolest thing ever!!!!!  This is more than a Halloween decoration...this is an all the time addition to the Kins household Grin

The Frankenstein family portraits are so fabulous!! I really like the frames they are in too. They will look awesome hanging on the wall - I might never take them down Smiley.

HotBananaPepper, I'm so glad you liked it! And yes, I had a devil of a time taking pictures of it too. I'm going to do a post about it, but the short answer on the decoupage is... Elmer's glue. Tongue I was out of Mod Podge and matte medium, so I just did layers of plain white glue. I'm kind of a novice when it comes to paper crafts, but I've done this technique before and it works just great (though not for things that will be exposed to water, obviously). The whole thing was a lot of fun, thanks again!

Those Frankenstein hoops are awesome, what a perfect pair!
