That wreath is so fun! I love the "boo" bunting on the tin, too!
OMG, I missed that teaser, HotBananaPepper -but it's okay because now I have the actual AWESOME item!! Grin
I'll post pictures tomorrow when the light can do it justice. In the meantime here's a teaser for you (and yes, it's all from one thing -just tiny snippets)...

Okay, prepare for image overload because I'm going to share the awesome duo that HotBananaPepper crafted for me! I LOVE IT!!!!! Grin She totally nailed the creepy-cute quirkiness I love about Halloween, and this unique specimen will have a place of honor for many Halloweens to come!

My first glimpse were some bony little feet peeking through the box stuffing, with an intriguing label attached...



Lots of little finger bones and vertebrae...



They've got plenty of backbone...



Pleased to meet you both!



They may share a body,...



...but they each have their own personalities!



And finally, in all their glory...



Aren't they just the most perfectly incredible pair? I totally love them, Hot BananaPepper, thank you SO MUCH! I'm going to get them a display case of some kind (maybe a doll dome) to keep the specimen properly preserved for posterity. Wink

That's awesome! It (they?) would look wonderful in a dome.

Awesome packages, guys! That halloweenie wreath is so cute! And the 2-headed pumpkin is so rad!

I received from Hayleylujah on Thursday, but am just now getting to posting pics. My weekend... was...not so grand. Felt pretty ill, then on a 2-hour drive to a doctor's appt this morning, I got a speeding ticket. In a construction zone. And I realllllly deserved it. The cop was super-nice though and knocked down the violation by 11 mph. So, it could have been hundreds of dollars worse, BUT it still appears as if the bummer weekend has extended itself.

But enough off-topic rambling excuses. I have pics of Hayley's lovely package, and I am posting them. NOW.

Group shot!


She made me this adorable tote, which I think I'm going to use to hold my candy for handing out at this year's trunk-or-treat!


I love this grinning cat Smiley And it's a box! This is right up on my mantle for the rest of October Smiley


And it's filled with awesome buttons!!! I can't wait to use some of these.

Thank you so much, Hayley, for an awesome package! Sorry again it took me so long to post pics!
