  That's my awesome package from my partner Shaina! Well, most of it is here anyways. lol There's an amazing scarf (I am so in love with the Tim Burton stripes) and a Jack skellington head for a necklace. The one thing that isn't pictured is a pair of wrist warmers / fingerless mittens. They're knit, black, and each one has a felt Jack head on  them. <3 They're in the wash right now...I've been wearing them out. I've been wearing them a lot lately. It's been sooo rainy and cold, they're perfect for walking and riding the bus. Thanks so much Shaina. I love it all!

This is the Sally doll that I made for girlwonder.  She has a hand colored dress, painted face, and I used embroidery floss for her stitches.

They are Pumkin Jack head orniments which are so well done and nice and two potholders - the sewing is so nice and love the fabric. So thick and nice - will be fighting hubby over them <G>

I had the most wonderful swap angel - BatGrrl !

Thanks so much - I've been carefully showing off my swap items to everyone that has come over during the holidays and everyone is most jealous <G>

5 of the greatest Jack onries I've ever seen and two potholders - one is like Sally's dress and the other is different spooky black fabic - this picture does not show the wonderful crafting done on this. The stiching on the potholders is so nicely done and the faces - I just love them.  I couldn't be any happier with a package!

Those jack ornaments are brilliant! I know what I'll have to get my boyfriend for christmas next year... Roll Eyes (this year he got a corpse bride figurine, and a santa jack figurine, and he worships both those presents)

so i'm bored and i thought i'd post what i sent to whiskey  Grin mind you, it's just small project since i wasn't in the swap


basic altoid covered with nightmare wrapping paper Smiley


inside. i tried to get creative and use regular scotch tape to make a stencil.. doesn't really work as well as i'd hope



close up of the names


and because you can't send empty tins, i bought a pack of fake nails and painted them with nightmare characters/backgrounds. that thing at the bottom is the glue. haha, i think it's a good thing these pictures can't show too much detail. i'm not much of an artist

goatgoddess,

Glad you liked the goodies.  This is what the one that didn't make it looked like:



Oops!  And that's why I left that infernal tray out.  Undecided

As I told you, my husband cracked a joke about that being the most appropriate face to get damaged.   Roll Eyes


Pieces,

Joanne

I recieved my goodies from Lespaulgirl. You can view all of them full-size on my Flickr account http://www.flickr.com/photos/giddygirlie/page4/ (I have also posted the ones that I sent).

There was a bracelet with a shrinky-sink Zero charm, and a necklace with a shrinky-dink Oogie Boogie, as well as a set of srinky-dink Jack pins. I also received a black satin make-up bag with Boogie embroidered on it and a white scarf with Jack's face. These all came in a denim handbag, hand-embellished with the graveyard scene with Zero.

Thanks to Whiskey for finding me a wonderful swap angel!

And thank you soooooooooooooooooooo much to Tinted, for all the Nightmare Before Christmas goodness.



I love it all...the magnets look wicked on my refrigerator, the anklet looks smashing around my ankle, and I can't wait to write in the book and stationary. Thanks!

Whiskey! I just tried to PM you, but it's malfunctioning and saying you don't exist. Grrrr! So here's what I was trying to tell you...

*Whit! I got your package and it is AMAZING. You really are too much. Thank you SO much! How on earth did you do the jar and the plates? They're so wonderful. My camera battery is charging as we speak, so I'll try to get some pictures posted as soon as possible. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you!! I do love everything insanely much.*

I am glad you like everything...that is wierd that it is saying that I don't exist.  I would love it if you could post pictures of everything, because I had a doh moment after I packed it up...forgot to take pictures!

I wasn't an official participant in this swap, but I swap-angeled goatgoddess, and in return she sent me a very cool package.  The contents must be shared!



At the top of the fused picture is a wicked-cool candle holder.  In the first pic, you'll see it's got Jack on the front and cool swirly silver glitter paint layers on the other sides, sort of like snow in Christmasland.  As you can see from the second two pics, it looks great with a candle in it--Jack gets that warmer moonlight look, and the silvery sides come to life like dancing demons in relation to the texture of the paint.  Like I said, wicked-cool.

Down and to the left are a set of wonderful Jack-faced tacks with different expressions on them (one of them is definitely replacing the tack that's currently holding up the Corpse Bride calendar).  What was even cooler is that I realized they GLOW IN THE DARK!!!!! You can almost see that in the picture right below them, though it didn't reproduce as well as you can see it--they really glow great!  And you can still see the faces in the dark when they glow!

On the right side is a fabulous bookmark with Sally hair, plus cool green accents that match the bookmarks' background.  It's a great combination of colors and textures, and it came exactly when I needed a bookmark and didn't feel up to dealing with my current desk-mess to find one.  Oddly coincidental....

And finally, down in the lower right, these great magnets for the fridge--beautiful scenes and great textures again!

Hallow-Christmas in March!  Thanks, goatgoddess--this package rocked!

Pieces,

Joanne
