Mailed today. Been on here and might have an eensy bit of swap anxiety.

Me too! The stuff other people have made looks fantastic and mine is just like "meh, it'll do" in comparison. D:

I hate to inflict further pain on anyone who already has swap anxiety, but I do want to share what thisbirdsabsurd sent me.  Cheesy

First off, when I opened the package, I met up with this lanky fellow and a hand-drawn notecard, apologizing for glitter. (Glitter? Who apologizes for glitter?  Cheesy)


There were two wrapped packages in the box. I opened the smaller one first. It was a little ghoul!

I love this guy. He feels right at home with my collection of trick or treaters.

There was no glitter to be seen on him, so I assumed the glitter was awaiting in the larger package. I unwrapped it slowly, only to find the coolest, blackest, glittery-est Halloween owl ever! Whoa~check him out! I love his eyes.


He's over a foot tall, and he is the BEST! Truly a work of art.


Here he is in his natural habitat with his friend the crow. Doesn't he look magnificent?


Thank you so much, thisbird! You were a wonderful swap partner!  Kiss

awww--the little ghoul is fabulous!

Also, the owl is indeed a work of art...we can forgive the glitter because it suits him!

So glad you like them racky!!   (And thanks for the love Lime and always!)  Smiley
The little ghoul was a copy of something on racky's pinterest, and...not really vintage. Undecided  The owl was inspired by some little vintage owls she pinned and soon took on a life of it's own.  I'm glad the glitter's not offensive.  Wink  AND...good to see he has a little friend.  Smiley

No worries, we agreed on one item -that's what I made too. Wink
But wow, yeah, I'm so impressed by everything that's been created! That little clay ghoulie and that bright-eyed owl are incredible!
