I'm glad you liked it!  This swap was a lot of fun to craft for.  The hardest part was the shrine, because I wanted to do so much detail.  It is stained and distressed, and the back has one of paradisecrane's favorite quotes.  The pic on the inside is handcolored and decoupaged, and accented with red paper roses.  There is a tea light to make it a bit spookier.

The stickers represent Poe's audience, or possibly even his mom.  Then, there is a little framed picture of one of his most famous portraits, a gothic pin that totally reminded me of something one of his characters would wear, and a plaque to represent one of paradisecrane's favorite works- Annabel Lee.

I wish I could claim credit for that!  But no, it actually belonged to my grandfather, and I'd look at it every time I read Annabel Lee.

I received today from paradisecrane! I didn't realize there were 87 pictures on my camera, so as soon as they're done downloading, I'll get some pics up here.
She made a telltale heart clock, some awesome stationery and cards, and a tote bag!

here's all of it:

for some reason, i didn't get a closer picture of the bag. i love it though! here's what she wrote, and i completely agree:
"The bag is not what people would think of Edgar, but it reminded me a lot of the scenery in Eleonora, and I really wanted to make you something from your favorite Poe story!"
LOVE IT.

here are the cards:

i didn't take a pic of the lined paper because i thought the first picture showed it well, but through some weird resizing and cropping it lost its goodness. anyway, it has Poe in the corner and on the top it says "deep in earth my love is lying and i must weep alone"

here is the clock, which hangs in the kitchen now, replacing my cappuccino clock:


and of course, Rob steals all ribbon and trim that comes with any of my swaps. this ribbon was wrapping the notecards.

I am panicking. I just checked the tracking number for the package i sent to raindrops and it says "acceptance" at my post office on march 10th.
that's the same thing it said about the last swap package i mailed there, that they LOST!
I spent soooo much time on this one. I thought about insuring it, but thought they wouldn't lose two packages in a row there. if they lost this one, I'm never going there again. I am seriously terrified.
