This is most of what I sent to my partner in the mini 13 days of Halloween swap. Many of my creations were inspired by her pinterest list.

Shimmering, shiny, color changing fairy's wings that she can insert in the back of a corset or wear with the support and ribbon harness.

Two skeleton dolls un-living in their coffin.

A mug with a raven and a nevermore spoon to go with it.

The chest she inherited from her cousins from Transylvania, full of memorabilia:  Count Dracula's wooden welcome sign, Countess Bathory's journal, a handmade small notebook, a secret letter, an emergency blood supply, a seal with wax ( made from a button) and, a vampire necklace.

A folding top hat that fits in a two inches high box.

Sam plush

An Halloween umbrella for her mom:

Some creepy jewelry including a cameo necklace, a witch glass square and an anatomically correct heart.

Two voodoo dolls:

A Dia de los muerte mask:

A fairy house for her cat with hammock that my cat tested and and some catnip toys.

Snow White's box with mirror, potion bottles, handmade tiny cups and tweezers, book of potions, dripping candle light and poisoned apple.

Thanks for looking. It was a lot of fun to make.

Yeah, any one of those would be enough for a whole swap! I especially love the cat house.

Thank you very much to all for your kind words.

HOLY COW! did you miss the "mini" part of that swap title, perhaps?   Cheesy  Beautiful stuff - your partner is one lucky lady (or guy, I guess)!

I hope it's OK I made too much. I went over the galleries of past swaps and I saw so many great items, it inspired me. I was working on projects everywhere in the house and didn't realize, until the packing stage, how much stuff I made. Also, being fairly new to swapping, I didn't want to disappoint her. Anyway, I really enjoyed the opportunity to imagine, design and create.

Thanks for finding it beautiful. I was a bit worried I was the only one thinking so!

Yeah, any one of those would be enough for a whole swap! I especially love the cat house.

Thank you very much! It's probably better that I make less next time.

My cat loved the cat house too! I am thinking of making one for her.

Lucky partner!  It's all gorgeous and unique.  Especially love the Halloween umbrella and voodoo dolls.

Thanks a lot for appreciating my work and the creative process that went into.

I would never have thought of sewing voodoo dolls if my partner hadn't suggested it. Once the dolls were sewn, the best part came: finding or creating all kinds of decorations to sew on them.

The umbrella was a last minute idea. I was mulling other what could make her mom happy, and that she would not already own. I had just bought a set of two umbrellas for our family. So, I decided to paint one like a silhouette but in reverse. Working on one panel at a time made the painting part very enjoyable.

Really wonderful work and so creative. I agree that your work far exceeded expectations.

Thank you! I love the time when it looks like I am doing nothing but my head is in ebullition, and then drawing it. Actually creating is great too and relaxing in its own way( as long as it works).

I'm speechless! Such wonderful creativity!

You're so kind! I loved the creative part.

Wow - wee!  What a package!  Great, fun stuff!

Thanks a bunch! I had a lot of fun designing it.
