My spooky spectacular space!

I received from Ffrogg yesterday.  Sorry, I didn't take a pic of how pretty she wrapped everything.  Each package has a cute little saying on it.  I was a good girl, and waited till today to open.  I made myself wait until I got my morning chores done 1st.  

1st up: AWESOME stitchery!!!!  I'm going to put this in my studio, so it will stay out all year long.  How did you know that I actually do have night mares almost every night Ffrogg?  :)  It says: I am the Shadow on the moon at night   Filling your Dreams to the brim with fright.  
2nd Day: I saw the orange ball poking out of the top of the package.  So, that's why I chose to open it today.  As soon as I saw the white part, I knew it had to be Zero!!!  And, it was!!!  Ffrogg sent me more than 13 packages, so I took the awesome Halloween bag out of the box too!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything!!!  Thank you so much Ffrogg!!

Day 3: Don't let the outside of the box fool you!  When you open it, there is an adorable miniature witch's living room!  Soo, soo, soo cute!

Day 4: Awesome, loooong bunting!!!  I had to switch which wall I was going to hang it on, because the previously chosen wall was not long enough!  Fun candy corn socks!  I LOVE fun socks!  And, beautiful Halloween fabric.  I needed to refresh my Halloween fabric supply.


Day 5: Bootiful painted/decoupaged paper mache letters that spell out B O O.  

Day 6: A beautiful earthen ware mug that I plan on drinking my coffee and hot apple cider out of.  I even love the colors, because I consider myself a, "close to the earth" kind of girl.  :)

Day 7: An adorable crocheted frog and a mini palm reading book.  I plan on putting the frog in my studio after Halloween.  


Day 8: 2 spooktacular plaques.  I love the vintage look of both of them.

Day 9: 5 delicious Halloween themed fat quarters!  Raggy quilt, here I come!

Day 10: The cutest crocheted pumpkin zippered pouch!  The zipper even has a clay leaf on it!

Day 11: Wonderful smelling apple bath bombs, that are the BOMB!

Day 12: A fun coffin.  It even has a vile of blood!  The little bat hanging upside down is my favorite part!

Day 13: Boo hoo, the last day!  A Day of the Dead Sugar Skull.  I got one in a Day of the Dead swap, and they look wonderful together!  Thank you so much Ffrogg for making my Halloween spooktacular!

Day 1
I am now the very proud owner of one of Ms. kittykill's creations.  She made a headless horseman cross stitch that's just perfect.  Isn't it awesome?

Today's goodie is an eyeball candle in a spooky severed skeleton's hand.  Love it!

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous (and spooky) embroidery in the most amazing oval frame!  Just wow!


Day 4
Socks!  And they totally go with the jammies I was wearing when I opened them.   ;D


Day 5

Day 6
EEP!  Spider girl!  She's vintage perfection!  I love her!


Day 7
Halloween ornaments!  I am going to have to get a Halloween tree to display these.  I received a few in last year's swap, too, so I think the universe is telling me to get one...  I love them so much.   :)



Day 8
The most perfectly stitched 'Trick or Treat' kitchen towel!  Just gorgeous!  


Day 9
It's a box full of fun!  I love the images she chose to embellish it, and the skull on top is fantastic.


Here's another view:


Inside I found this adorable 'snow' globe.   :)


and classic monster movie goodies.  Yahoo!



Day 10
I am seriously in love with this key fob.  Dude.  Seriously.  I want to learn how to make these myself because they're so cool!


Day 11
Two gorgeous chunky houses to add to my Halloween chunky house neighborhood.  I love these so much!  If I'm not mistaken I think they are kittykill's first attempt.  She's a pro!  


Day 12
The most darling raven on a fence mug and some yummy tea and chai to try.


Day 13
Boo!  Last day... kittykill sent me the most beautiful, fluffy, warm, amazing throw.  My cat Bindi immediately tried to claim it as her own.  Not so fast there, missy!  Thank you kittykill for the most amazing swap.  It's been wonderful opening my treasures from you every morning.

My Halloween Gallery of goodies from michelleandbean

Here's everything (except for day 6 which is in a separate box that has not yet arrived despite being mailed the same day as the other box. Darnit, USPS!)



~*~ Day 1 ~*~


Yum, yum, yum!! All pineapple goodies. Pineapple jelly, pineapple gummies (in a hysterical "specimen" bag!), pineapple lip balm and pineapple gummy bears! Pineapple is my all-time favorite but since I hate coconut, it's nearly impossible to find JUST pineapple things. Yay!! I've already sampled the gummy bears and they're quite good! ;D


~*~ Day 2 ~*~


Awesome bat shadowbox! It has a bat flying by a full moon, a spooky tree and mossy ground. Love it! ;D


~*~ Day 3 ~*~

Two glass potion bottles! "Wool of Bat" and "Grounded Bones." The kitty is little Ginger who literally would not let me take a photo without her "help." ;)


~*~ Day 4 ~*~

Adorable Mickey Ear fleece pillows in orange and black and Mickey Ear banner in black and orange. So cute! (I am a massive Disney fan so this is great.)


~*~ Day 5 ~*~

Framed bat art. I love the ornate frame on this!


~*~ Day 6 ~*~

An awesome black and orange ornament wreath! So festive!!


~*~ Day 7 ~*~

A cute felt owl and a neat ceramic owl. The ceramic one opens and is hollow inside so he can hold things.


~*~ Day 8 ~*~

A basket full of pumpkins! I've artfully spilled them out so you can see them here but they all fit nicely in the basket to make it full.


~*~ Day 9 ~*~



Cat day! There was a "crinkle mat" which has an orange full moon and bats on it and it's fuzzy with a crinkly center so when the cats lay on it, it makes noise. Ginger was quite taken by it which is why I couldn't get a shot withOUT her on it! Also, four felt cat toys; Mickey Ears, Bat, Mouse, Fish. I also could not get a photo without Ginger's "help" in testing them out. Plus, Mika and Gracie wanted to play too.


~*~ Day 10 ~*~

A really lovely little bag in a fun orange/red/yellow fabric with a elastic button closure. Fully lined with a little pocket inside too.


~*~ Day 11 ~*~

6 crochet washcloths (2 each, black, orange, white) plus Halloween cupcake liners and Halloween cookie cutters!


~*~ Day 12 ~*~

A really pretty rose barrette, a skeleton key, steampunky gear necklace and earrings, lock and key earrings and ring that looks like it was made from an extremely detailed old button.


~*~ Day 13 ~*~

An awesome stitched "Tomb Sweet Tomb" sign! (It's from Haunted Mansion ride at Disney.)


Yay! What an awesome swap. I had SO much fun and the range of items were so very thoughtful and creative. Thank you, michelleandbean for an excellent swap!!

Post by: Glamis on September 05, 2013 03:58:24 AM
On Day 1 I received:

Three ghouls to keep me company. You can´t see it in the picture but they have red (bead) eyeballs.
They now guard m garden fence!



plus: sticky eyeballs (glow in the dark!) that run down windows. The cat is very fascinated



On Day 2 (zombie day) I received:

a handprint sticker (goes to my front door) and zombie paper doll chains!



plus a mystery walking dead figure. Who might it be?


?
?
?
?
?

a corporate zombie. Nice  ;D (in my opinion he has a rather "healthy" skin tone for a zombie  ;D)



On Day 3 I received:

delicate beaded bat earrings



the awesomeness continues:
On Day 4 I received:


I received two felt patches and some skulls beads for my collection. The skull patch is going to go on my jacket (as a pin)



On Day 5 I received:

"the glass Lizzie Borden drank from just before her death in 1927" Very hard to photograph but you hopefully get the impression that there is an etched hand print on it..



plus caution tape. I may put it on the toilet door...



On Day 6 I received: (I realised I have to use more adverbs to properly appreciate calixitas work)

Books <3
two supertiny ones: one with beautiful pictures of Mount Auburn Cemetery, one with tiny horror film poster (beginning and ending with one of "night of the living dead"   ;D) and a very inspiring "Book of skull"s with pictures of artwork that involve skulls.








I love that font and it is free!

plus a neat magnetic bookmark



On Day 7 I received:


Seven more tiny books:

One with spooky images (it also has googly eyes on the cover)



One with poetry, containing "Tourist Season" by David R. Gluck (cracked me up) and "untitled" by Michael Nguyen (creepy )



One with pictures of "Northhampton State Hospital" and "Danvers State Hospital" (so cool)



One Skizzenbuch (sketchbook in German) with blank pages



One Zeitschrift (magazine in German) with also blank, lined pages



One leather bound with blank pages



and one labeled "My Dolls" with creepy doll face pictures



plus a mini woodland  library,lined with horror movie posters and a library gargoyle to watch them all





I am quite overwhelmed and can´t even imagine how much work went into all that tiny books and the bookshelf
love them all!

On Day 8 I received:

An altered "model" (I don´t know the name for it) house plus this story that goes with it (Read it!!):
A tiny zombie house:
A minor earthquake hit a small new england town and caused an explosion in an unused mine. A black cloud of dust settled in a 30 mile area surrounding the old mine. It was mostly woods and 1 building, The Wooden Nickel Inn. All the animals quickly died and the humans at the Inn soon fell gravely ill themselves. Two elderly tourists were there the first to die but doctors were baffled as to treatment. Then police received a 911 call that the dead tourists were attacking the other inhabitants. No one has come out of the house since....



look at that tiny bloody axe, and the bloody handprint in the window!



isnt´t it supercool !?!

On Day 9 I received:

A necklace with three different shrink plastic pendants:
Momento mori, Black caviar for zombies and The black broken heart of an ex-lover   ;D ;D ;D ;D
Had a good laugh before I had to go to the dentist, thanks!


(sorry for the bad pic, it was the best out of 20..)

On Day 10 I received:

A felt oogie boogie stuffed with bugs. He is awesome and will join my collection of handcrafted pin cushions.



you can even take the bugs out. Look how tiny they are  :o (compared to my giant finger) and each one is different



calixita, you are such a delicate crafter

On Day 11 I received:

A beaded werewolf artwork. Calixita originally wanted to turn it into a cuff bracelet but thought I´d find the colors too drab, tho´she briefly considered giving him a rainbow background  :) I think all ideas are good. I think it is beautiful anyways..



On Day 12 I received:


A bloody bathtub pin cushion with bone, hand and eyeball pin. It was Calixitas first time working with poly clay. Very creative!



On the last :'( :'( :'( :'( day I received:


Four awesome beaded bracelets. I love bracelets. The eye one is sooooooooooooo cool and the other have really pretty color combos



Action shot



I am so sad it is all over now. Calixita you have been an incredible partner. Everything I received is so thoughtful and well made. I hope to swap with you some time in the future again. Thank you.  :)
P.S. Due to your awesome bead work I got hooked up on beading again. And I blame you that I ordered 50 € worth of what the internet says are the best beads (miyuki) and a loom  ;)

My fabulously fantastic QueenNinjaMonkey awesomeness:

Day 1/13/whatever:  WOO CANDY CORN

Seriously.. I love candy corn enough that it is probably considered illegal in several southern states.  And Starburst candy corn is the best!  Woo!  Terraria and candy corn has been my agenda all evening.. lol



Day 2:  WOO ZOMBIES!!

These completely adorable pillows with painted zombie silhouettes on the front and cool skull fabric on the back.  So so awesome!




Day 3!!



Wee felt ornaments!  SO so so cute.  They make me ridiculously happy.  Also, candy corn duct tape! <3

Day 4!!



This poor adorable candy corn zombie hoop.  I think it's needle punched?  It's thick and awesome and bumpy.  



It looks fantastic on my "favorites" wall, too! :D

Day 5!!



More zombie felties!  Squeeeee!!  And a Zombie Apocalypse book that my 16-year-old shockingly stole.  Double bonus!



I bought this glittery halloween tree last year to use in my craft booth, but my ornament production outgrew it pretty quick, so it's been sitting on top of a shelf looking fancy but bare.  Bare no longer!

Day 6!



This day proves that Madame Ninja Monkey is a psychic.   First, socks!  I love weird socks, and my candy corn socks are tied for favorites with the eyeball socks and the striped socks.  But now candy corn striped socks?  winner!

The coasters are awesome with foam skeleton feet, but, most importantly, they have Chris Mars paintings on them, and he is one of my favorite artists of all time.

The kicker: I didn't tell her I loved both of these things, so she must be psychic!!

Day 7!!



Holy crap it's a soap skeleton!  I didnt even know this skeleton mold existed.  I am so excited to be washing my hands with a bony foot. :D

Day 8!



A pile of fun stuff!  An adorable candy corn (wheee!), a light up lantern, and some monster pills that I might be nice and share with my kids. ;)

Day 9!



OMG MORE FELTIES.  I don't know how I lived my life without these things in it, for real.  I have looked at my little zombie tree 197591875 times over the last week.  SO FREAKIN CUTE.

Day 10!



and even more!!!  I don't want to ramble on like a maniac any more than I already have, so suffice to say they are fantastic.  Love love love.  Plus another zombie book!

Day 11!!



This cool spidery book box!  I have always wanted a book box, and I always need storage, so even more awesome.



Inside I found magnets and cool vintage postcards!

I can't believe there are only two days left! Ack!

Day 12!



This super awesome skully shirt!  I am so excited about this thing!

day 13!  waHHHH



This beautiful Halloween shrine.  I have hung it already in a place of honor - I absolutely adore it.

Thank you so much for everything, QNM!!  You were the best partner ever.

6th Day
My partner wasn't sure if this idea translated well or not, but I freakin LOVE it! It's a voodoo doll wreath, awesome!




7th Day
Creepy little candy corn, this guy is so sweet! I love his expression!


8th Day
I love pretty much anything thing Day of the Dead, so of course I flipped when I opened this couple!

I love the texture/coloring of their skulls and the tiny roses!!  ;D

9th Day
It's Jake! I can't wait to hang these all up together!  ;D


10th Day
Zombie Lumpy Space Princess! This is seriously awesome, she's going to look great on my hoop wall!


11th Day
Supplies  :) Things I definitely need, felt, hoops in all sizes, embroidery floss and a cute felt sugar skull. I am in the process of making felt ornaments of every Adventure Time character so this will really help!  ;D


12th Day
It's Finn!  :) :) I'm so, so in love with these paintings!


13th Day
Skeleton dry erase board, love this! It's going next to the fridge.  ;D Also lots of Tootsie Rolls, which I also love. They were everywhere in the box and I have eaten tons.  :D


I am so sad this swap is over. Thank you so much themuppet, I loved everything and I would happily swap with you again in the future!  :) :) :)

A bloody candle. I am not sure if I want to burn this lol spooky!


Day 9
Supply day!!!
I love the skull ice and finger ice trays! I use these for making resin items. I actually ruined my finger tray last year so I was jazzed to see a new one. I use e 6000 a lot too, for a while it was out of stock at every place I checked. Also a coffin and some skelly hands. These will get used! ;D

an Owl!! He reminds me of woodsie the owl. he will go in my craft room when completed!


Day 13
I am so sad this is the last day of goodies. I did get two really fabulous wall hangings to wrap up my 13 days!

I love this eye wall décor. I have a pendant pinned that this must have been inspired by. I will love it much more on my wall since I can see it everyday!

Skull and bones wall décor. Perfect, I love the skull and bones!

Thanks so much for the Halloween greatness LaChapa! I really enjoyed everything you made and sent to me!!!

My wrapped loot from GrannysAnnie- all purple and lime green  ;D


My card- it's Sooper Skeritly a Doctor Who thing, I'm sure, because it's a Van Gogh and that was one of my favourite eps, and it says SPOILERS!! inside, like River always tells 11.


Day 13- a anatomical heart! Now me and my girlfriend both have one (it's a in-joke about our relationship) :D


After a quick conversation we've figured out our crossed wires and I am to be opening counting up instead of down. So I give you...Day 1- candy I've never seen before!


Day 2- Lock Shock and Lipgloss! It's a pretty red colour with the lid off.


Day 3- a bunch of stickers



Day 4- A slit throat choker in zombie green! (I only have like 4 zombie shirts to pair it with  :D )


Day 5- supplies. I've never seen marble painted chain like this. I already know what I'm doing with the black and white one.


Day 6- orange-lime bubble bath. I literally can't think of two smells I love more than orange and lime, so this is FANTASTIC.


Day 7- orange bath salts


Day 8- a slit wrists and throat set (only took a picture of the wrist, since the throat looks the same as the zombie one)


Day 9- I really reeeeeally wanted a bat necklace, and after a few failed attempts to make one, GrannysAnnie bought me one. Thanks for making sure I got one!


Day 10- A TARDIS, that, when you open....is full of zombie Doctors!


Day 11- a block of fall themed scrapbook paper. Here are some examples:


Day 12- Saw magnets! These are so gory cool, they instantly make me want to rewatch the movies.

My gallery of gory goodies!  ;D

On the first day of Halloween Lo{ve} sent to me:

A bunch of Halloween candy! A delightful mix of twix, 3 musketeers, snickers, and milky ways. Alas, the people in my household ran off with the goods before I could snap a pic.

On the second day of Halloween:

A set of lovely Halloween bookmarks! I still read REAL books (shocking I know) and can always use another bookmark. They are so cute and well made. Jealous of Lo{ve}'s sewing skills already!

On the third day of Halloween:

Supply day! A bunch of Fall/Halloween buttons!

On the fourth day of Halloween:

An awesome set of perler bead coasters! Frankenstein and his bride are kind of like mascots for my husband and I. We even had them on our wedding cake! I can't wait to use these!

A shot of the inside of the wallet and Lo{ve}'s awesome sewing skills!

Gifts for my husband (a skull candle and skull shot glasses) and furkids (treats and a Halloween collar)!

She also included this cute spider decoration that glows different colors.

On the ninth day of Halloween:

Glitter! I love the orange and green ones especially!

On the tenth day of Halloween:

Creepy letters! Lo{ve} says she doesn't really do paper crafts, but I think she did a great job!

On the eleventh day of Halloween:

Halloween baking supplies!

Cutest spatula ever!

On the twelfth day of Halloween:

A cute ghosty mug rug! She quilted around the ghosts to give it a neat texture!

Post by: La Chapa on September 10, 2013 01:47:14 PM
I received my package today!  It came opened and a little damaged, so hopefully everything made it.  The post office from my city had the nerve to put a sticker on it claiming that they received it damaged, like that's supposed to be some sort of disclaimer.  Then the post man dropped it at my door (on top of a squished snail!) and bolted without waiting for me to answer.  I got snail guts all over my kitchen table!  Eeww, eww, eww!  It made me nauseous.   Anyway, I'm just glad it's here!  I will get to posting pics a.s.a.p.


DAY 1
A jar with a creepy doll face!  I love the verde gris look.  And it's full of the good Halloween candy!  So of course the whole family got a piece.  Just one though, because that's how I eat my candy.  I instantly knew where to put it.  On my kitchen counter! (just ignore the fugly countertop--I rent)  :)

AND, the little fella had about a half an hour of fun with the bubble wrap it was wrapped in!  Bonus!


DAY 2
Sebastian's day!  Sweetyetevil was sweet enough to craft a day for my 3-yr-old! The package was already ripped open and there's a lot of stuff loose in the big box, so there may have been something else in there for him I'm not sure.  I figure I'll go through whatever is left in the box on the last day!  Anyway, he got a Halloween painting with his initial on it (love the colors on this!), 2 masks to color, some Scooby Doo stickers (which he grabbed first!), and a glowing safety necklace.  I'm totally the mom that makes her kids wear those too!  He enjoyed his package and would say thank you if he had any manners yet.  He's currently a manner-less, monster, terror of a child (don't let the big eyes fool ya!)




DAY 3
An awesome mug in a cute little house box thingy.  There was an eyeball in the mug which was funny, but I'm not sure if it was sweetyetevil with the sense of humor, or the post office since my box arrived opened and looking like it had been rummaged through.  I already bought new paint brushes to put in the mug (I use all my favorite mugs this way :))


DAY 4
A fun doorknocker (that really works btw!), and a cute journal and matching pen.  So glad I got Day of the Dead stuff.  I'm really big on that Holiday and don't think I even remembered to mention that in my questionnaire.


DAY 5
Gasp!  Is literally the sound I made when I opened today's package.  The best Bride of Frankenstein mini pillow EVER!  I put her high on the shelf because I have a crazy, destructive little monster-child, and I will seriously cry if anything happens to her!


DAY 6
Sweetyetevil didn't number her packages and told me to just have fun picking and choosing, so I've mostly been doing them grab bag style.  Since its the weekend, I decided to pick out the one that was marked for my teenage son Xavier.  She made the awesomest magnetic board with skull resin magnets for him!  He totally dug it!  I have such a hard time finding things to make for him that he actually wants now that he's "older."  This was just brilliant!  It has a hole to hang it from the wall, and a large magnet on the back if he wants to use it in his locker!  
I also couldn't resist opening something small for myself.  I got the best smelling jack-o'lantern bars ever!  I'm not sure if they're soap or moisturizing bars or what, but I must find out because I am dying to use them so I can smell like a rock star!


DAY 7
A pretty, sparkly papier-mache pumpkin lantern, complete with led flickering candle.  It has holes in it for the light to sparkle through.  Also, a glittery skull on a bendy stick which I am going to use as a plant poke in my indoor fern.


DAY 8
Some brown sugar body scrub cubes!  They are caramel apple scented and they smell sooo gooood.  I can't make anything even remotely like this so I'm super stoked!  I also got another cute little house box, a BOO skeleton sign, and I found some crayons which I'm thinking probably came out of Sebastian's package.  He loves coloring and goes through crayons a lot.


DAY 9
Two awesome quilted mug rugs and a cute plant poke.  I love these so much that I'm thinking of just hanging them like wall art.  My favorite part is the little Dracula.


DAY 10
My new favorite piece of jewelry!  A scrabble tile bracelet with classic monsters!  I'm wearing this everday!


DAY 11
Some smoothing, super moisturizing, yummy smelling salt scrub, a fuzzy wuzzy spider, and another adorable house box for my collection.


DAY 12
Not one but TWO super cool  two-sided Walking Dead/Zombie necklaces.  My husband was literally sitting across the table reading the graphic novel when I opened these.  I also received two fun stickers.  One is of that awesome spider lady!  AND the coolest novelty ring ever. Totally wearing this to work for the rest of the month!


DAY 13!!
A smorgasbord of goodies!  Including: Some awesome magnets, a skeleton guy, some monstery paper embellishments, glow stick necklaces, a kitty plant poke, a cool skull scrapbook kit with scrapbook paper goodness, some Walking Dead ribbon, novelty tissues with a spider on it, some candy, and a crazy cool eyeball ornament! 

Here's a close up of the magnets and eyeball ornament.


In closing, I'd like to thank Sweetyetevil for all the amazing stuff.  I love everything!

My own spot, yay!  :D

Day 1:

Sorry for the awful pictures, it's raining outside so I had to do my best with indoor lighting.

Crocheted catnip eyes



A giant bag of Sour Patch Kids and Swedish Fish



Day 2:

A lovely fall wreath. The tiny corn next the pumpkin is my favorite part. :)



Day 3:

Sparkly pumpkin ornament, which is now adorning my bedroom wall.



Spooky wine charms. Too bad I'm only 19 and too young to drink. :D But I have some thin bottles painted as "potion" bottles that I'll be putting these on.



Day 4:

Possibly the cutest sock monkey in existence. He's covered in little pumpkins and is now living on my shelf with the other Halloween stuffed animals.



Day 5:

A huge collection of Halloween fabric to add to my stash! I was just thinking about how I needed to buy some fabric for a Halloween skirt, but now I have some. :D



Day 6:

I think this is my favorite thing so far. A skeleton sock "monkey"! It is too adorable and also reminds me of the tree spirits in Princess Mononoke.



Day 7:

Ghost socks



A sparkly vintage-looking potion bottle.



Day 8:

Beautiful hand-dyed yarn!



Day 9:

Supplies to make my own pretty yarn. :D I am so excited to get back into dyeing.



Day 10:

A super cute Halloween kitty. I'll probably give this to my mom since she collects Halloween cats.

I opened my boxes from Mandykaye!

Here's the whole stash. (And man do I feel some swap anxiety, there's a ton of stuff here!)


Day 1: A Nightmare Before Christmas inspired chunky house. This is so awesome!


Day 2: CHOCOLATE. mmmmm...  ;D


Day 3: I'm already feeling super spoiled. Gah. Look how COOL this is! I'm wearing it now, and it's super comfy too! Mandykaye used bleach to get the effect.


Day 4: My favorite character from Edgar Allen Poe in tote bag form! And a cool little birdhouse, too.



Day 5: I got a really cool little trinket box, and a skull notepad.



Day 6: Today I opened this awesome painting with one of my favorite sayings:

Day 7: Here's some cool fall-themed baking/cooking supplies. Very cute!


Day 8: Mandy gave me some pirate-themed fabrics! I've already got some ideas for these...


Day 9: This morning I got to start the day with an owly mug of hot chocolate on my brand new halloween mug rug! That's really one of the best ways to start your day. :)



Day 10: Today I opened something really awesome, a mini coffin containing a new set of accessories for my pirate costume!!!! I tend to dress up like a pirate a lot, and Mandy made me a set of pirate-y clip-on dreds with beads, feathers, shells, and bells! I talked the pup into modelling for me. ;)



As my Dad says, now I can get my "Captain Jack" on.

Day 11: Sad that it's almost over, happy that I got this awesome journal! It's got removable pages, and I must say it is very tidily done. (I've tried binding books before, it's really hard!) Those blank pages are awful inviting... ;)



Day 12: I got all sorts of goodies today! Some halloween cookie cutters, colored pens, and another Edgar Allen Poe-themed box. I love the quote!




Day 13: Opened my last gift. I love it! I'm so sad this swap is over, but check out this final present mandykaye made for me!
It's called "Nightmare of the Fandoms" ;D

Can you spot all of them? There's the TARDIS, The Headless Horseman, Zombies, Ghosts, Pirates, Nightmare Before Christmas, Rodents of Unusual Size, and some of it even glows in the dark!

Thanks Mandy!!! I really enjoyed swapping with you! I've already used the pot holders a bunch, and have been decorating the house with the other stuff. I think the NBC chunky house is my favorite, it's so detailed. I've also worn the t-shirt a lot, it's so comfy!

Good golly!  I nearly forgot to grab a spot!!
This space is for meeeeee!

My goodies!!

My cat got a special package that smelled so good, he dug into the box, pulled it out and tore it open 2 days early!

the skull is stuffed with catnip (hence the cat attraction).  Loch has been batting both toys all over the place over since and chewing the heck out of the skull (it's looking quite battered now!).  The treats are also obviously delicious (although I'm limiting him to only a few every night) and he is a very happy cat!!

I also got some lovely extras:  alphabet stamps, felt alphabet stickers, spooky decals and candy!  The chocolate eyeballs didn't survive the trip across the Atlantic very well.  They look terrifying tho'!   ;D
(http://s1210.photobucket.com/user/calixita/media/swaps/DSCN0415_zpsf772a346.jpg.html)

DAY ONE
bone magnets that make a whole skeleton!  Very cool!  He now guards my fridge.


DAY TWO
Glamis made me a funky Halloween wreath!  

She "tried to make it spooky and a bit odd".  Check out the teeth on these critters!!

mission accomplished!  I love it!  (I'm just sorry I couldn't get better pictures!)
link to a better picture courtesy of Glamis https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=608715&size=big&cat=&ppuser=62245#axzz2gmadFaS1

DAY 3

I unwrapped a cool old book.  (I love old books!)

But look what you find when you open it up!

Spooky!!

DAY 4

I received the most awesome Halloween banner on day 4!

It is the perfect length for just over my mantel and I love the vintage images she used!
(http://s1210.photobucket.com/user/calixita/media/swaps/DSCN0416_zps764f801a.jpg.html) (http://s1210.photobucket.com/user/calixita/media/swaps/DSCN0415_zps3e1fbffd.jpg.html) (http://s1210.photobucket.com/user/calixita/media/swaps/DSCN0414_zps64d2293d.jpg.html) (http://s1210.photobucket.com/user/calixita/media/swaps/DSCN0413_zpsed8b6567.jpg.html) (http://s1210.photobucket.com/user/calixita/media/swaps/DSCN0412_zps77e33ee5.jpg.html)
I've always admired the Halloween banners I've seen on this site and now I have one of my own.  I feel spoiled only 4 days into the swap!!

DAY 5

Today I opened an awesome Halloween tote!

I love the colors!!!
and also a fabulous necklace with a bird skull charm!!

So cool!!

DAY 6

Glamis, you are a most amazing crocheter!!!
Take a look at this wonderful work!

She found this on one of my pinterest boards and I'm in love with it!  And this is also precisely why I gave up trying to crochet anything for you, Glamis.  Your skills are leaps and bounds above mine!  The hand reaching out of the grave is so well done!  
Now I must find the perfect place to display it!

DAY 7

Fabulous raven candles!!

They are so lovely!  I have no idea how Glamis created them but I need another pedestal candle holder to display them both properly!

DAY8

Amazing embroidered haunted house!!

I admire embroidery work so much and I love this spooky house!!  The delicate colors in the moon, the spooky trees, the ever-so-slightly unbalanced look of the top floor that makes me imagine that one good stomp of Frankenstein's monster's boot would send it plunging into the cavernous ravine that the house is perched above...   It is simply fabulous!!!

DAY 9

I received a wonderful set of creepy forest coasters!!

Glamis said she hopes they are versatile enough for round the year use.  I will definitely be using them all year!  My favorite one right now is the scene with the antlered creature!  She also made a perfect coaster holder to keep them in!
(http://s1210.photobucket.com/user/calixita/media/swaps/DSCN0414_zps9abf3ec4.jpg.html) (http://s1210.photobucket.com/user/calixita/media/swaps/DSCN0412_zps319babd1.jpg.html)

DAY 10

Halloween towels and brain soap!

to help me stay "creepy clean"!  The towels are so neat and perfect for when my niece comes for a visit!  (which will give me the perfect excuse to use them other times of the year besides October!)  The brain soap is awesome!  I'm suffering my first head cold of the season so I can't tell just what they smell like (except pleasantly sweet!).  I've put one next to the sink already and will try to save the other for next Halloween!
(http://s1210.photobucket.com/user/calixita/media/swaps/DSCN0414_zps6be2209e.jpg.html)

DAY 11

a pretty jewelry holder!

such a pretty cat silhouette!  It's perched in the living room for now so I can enjoy it!

and German candy!!

lots of chocolate and caramel goodness, fruit toffees and gummy-looking eyeballs!!  I'm looking forward to tearing into this stash!

DAY 11   :'(

It's a dreary grey day in Boston but today's gift has brightened it considerably!!  I am now the proud owner of a beautiful cat pillow!

And not just any cat!  Glamis did some serious stalking because she got my handsome Loch's face perfectly!
(http://s1210.photobucket.com/user/calixita/media/DSCN0399_zpsd8eb7ca3.jpg.html)I can't tell you how thrilled I am with this!  I am only 4 cats away from being the stereotypical crazy cat lady and I love my new pillow so much!!
It's perfect for Halloween too because on the other side.....

BOO!!
Loch thinks the new sofa pillow is fabulous!   (http://s1210.photobucket.com/user/calixita/media/swaps/DSCN0414_zpsac2ad32b.jpg.html)
Thank you so much, Glamis!!!!!

DAY 13

And on this day, I unwrapped a spectacular Day of the Dead owl stuffie!!!!  She is too fabulous for words!!!

Just look at that face!

We bonded instantly and she has taken a perch on my mantel where she will help keep the cat in line.  (Loch has gotten a little uppity now that he has been immortalized in pillow form.  He struts around like a little dictator!)
Thank you so much for absolutely everything, Glamis!!!!  The amount of work and care you put into this gorgeous owl and all the wonderful goodies in my package is unbelievable and much appreciated.  I will continue to work on my crochet skills and if we are ever partners again, perhaps I'll be ready to share with a crafter of your abilities!!   ;)
Thank you again!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, EVERYONE!!!!

I had a lot of fun with this swap and glad I was able to take part in it. Thank you to Houlihan for all the great gifts and to lindyv321 and kittkill for coordinating a great swap.

Mine!

Day 1: To start things off, I received a wonderful bunting banner! I am in love with it! I tried to get an "action shot" on my lunch break so these pictures do not do it justice!





Day 2: I got some cute and creepy pasta! I asked that Rara not send candy, but she picked up on my love of food and sent pasta as a treat! It's perfect, since my bf and I are HUGE mac n' cheese fans. Also, she sent a festive collar for Pinky.. I interrupted her during snack time, so I apologize for the silly pictures  :P







Day 3: I got a cute set of felt ghost ornaments and a sticky cling haunted house!



And an action shot of the little boy ghost hanging out in my cubicle with my tikis and pterodactyl skeleton that guards my monitor..



Day 4: Cute beads! Autumn leaves, pumpkins, and some cool charms (Oct. 31 and a howling wolf!) My partner also sent along some other great lampwork beads and some findings as well.



Day 5: A lovely vintage copy of both Dracula and Frankenstein!



But wait! Flip a few pages to reaveal.. A secret stash spot! with a cute crow stamp and some graveyard embelisments inside. I am soooo excited about this! I love love love that my partner kept the original look. It will fit in perfectly on my bookshelf, but only I and the monsters will know the truth mwahahahhaha!



Day 6: A little sparkle pumpkin and the cutest little pumpkin charm!



Day 7: A really neat plate! Complete with crows and setting red sun. I love autumn and the sort of country/farm feel, but unfortunately you get NONE of that in Los Angeles.. but the picture just sort of makes me feel like that's the scene I'd be witnessing on an autumn afternoon, were I in a place that actually had seasons..



**I'm having issues with uploading my pictures, so I'll post them as they come through**

a cute bat box, and inside some little fabric bats and a neat ring!



an ornament with some spooky little ghosts on it, and a pumpkin basket



more bats! three felt bat ornaments and some glittery bat wall stickies. I put the ornaments up at my cubicle and have been getting so many compliments. And Dave Vanian approves of the wall clings!







For day 13, I received the MOST AMAZING ouija board necklace!! I squealed! I love love love it!! The pictures to not justify it's awesomeness. I also got some wonderful (and tasty) mystifying mints!

First, a photo of the whole lot from lindyv321!



Second, I must show the adorable card she sent!  It's a cut out skeleton.  This will be on the wall in my room, year round, more than likely.  So cute!



Lindy only labeled the Day 1 item, so I get to pick what to open each day!  AWESOME! :)

Day 1.
I got a 3D wooden tree!  I've always loved these, but have never gotten one.  It's black and glittery and she sent ornaments and garland to decorate it.



I wanted to get a close up of the little ornaments which I believe she made, because I love them so much!



The raven kills me, it's so cute!

Day 2.
This banner is awesome!  I don't do many paper crafts, but this makes me want to.  I have the perfect place to hang this over the cabinets in my kitchen!



Day 3.
Well, it's 5:30am on day 3, and I can't sleep...SO I COULDN'T HELP MYSELF!!!  Somehow, I opened the PERFECT package for insomnia!  An awesome anatomy book with some great stock images, some adorable cardboard decorative shapes, a science fiction magazine cut out (which is going on my inspiration wall as soon as I finish posting), and the BEST THING EVER!  A book of zombie feltie patterns!!!  I've already flipped through it, and I want to make them all! :)



Day 4.
This is possibly the most awesome thing I have ever seen!!!  I got a totally amazing shrine!!!  I'm so glad this survived shipping!!!  It's my favorite Halloween thing that I have at the moment!



Every little room is so perfect!  I love the skeleton guy...and I adore the gargoyle bead!!



oh and the angry women on the bottom are great!
She also sent a little shrine kit....with a skeleton which I already put together!!



Day 5.
A present for my little man!!!  It was wrapped up so lovely.



A beautiful little no sew blanket!  Orange on one side, black on the other.  He loves it, btw!



Day 6.
I got some great spooky embellishments, a little pumpkin clothespin, a super cute necklace, and some beautiful pumpkin earrings, which I am wearing right now!  There was a pumpkin candle in the box as extra, so I pulled that out too!  I wanted my house to smell delicious!  :)



Here's the necklace and earrings a little closer....so wonderful!



Day 7.
Today, I got a little Halloween sign, a BOO tiny clothespin, and a super adorable key chain!!!



The bat is so cute, I can't stand it! :)



I can't wait to put it to use!  I love everything so much, so far!!  I can only imagine what's in store for the next six days!!!! >-<

Day 8.
I found some amazing bottles for 1000 year old gargoyle drool and bottled ghosts!!  So awesome!



Day 9.
Some adorable supplies to make delicious Halloween goodies!!! :)



Day 10.
The most beautiful wrap bracelets ever!!



I can't take them off!



The caldron is my favorite part.
Also, there was an adorable skeleton necklace, two squishy rats, and a little spider clothespin!!



Day 11.
I found some super cute trim/ribbon, some awesome bone erasers(which I collect funny shaped erasers! win!), and a beautifully put together little book!



Here's the inside:



It looks so good next to the shrine...and I cannot get enough of those little dapper gentleman skeletons!!  They are just the best.

Day 12.
I got a great little lot of things!!  Some Halloween décor tape, super cute stickers, and fun staches!!!  Which is too great, because I have an obsession with putting sticker mustaches on my son, or drawing a mustache on my finger and taking pictures with it under his nose...SO THIS IS PERFECT!! :)



Some awesome zombies were sent along with the package, which are already hanging up in my window, which perfectly enough, is zombie themed!



and my favorite part are these holographic pictures.  I've always wanted some of these, but have never gotten them, mostly because I can never find one that is actually more spooky than corny...but these are definitely spooky and not corny at all!!!  They are going straight on the wall!  (and staying up year round like most of these awesome things Lindy has graced me with! :))

Bonafide:
 


HORRIFIED!:



I can't believe tomorrow is the last day!  I'm not sad....I'm not sad.....errrr....."mini -we can't get enough 13 days of Halloween - December edition", anyone????  Haha.

Day 13.
For the last day, I received a beautiful hoopla!



and some awesome double sided postcard type things.  :)



other side:



The end is bittersweet, but I love everything so much.  THANK YOU, LINDY!!!  Can't wait for next year!.  <3

So... I did this backwards  :-\
I opened Day 1 on day 1 instead of opening Day 13 on day 1.  Whoops.  I'm going to post the pictures in order anyway though.  Sorry!

Day 13
The most AWESOME set of cards counting down the days to Halloween! I think I'm going to put them in pouches to make a Halloween "Advent" Calendar  :)


Close-ups



Day 12
Skelly garland!



Day 11
Ghost soap  :)



Day 10
Handmade blank cards with two-tone envelopes.  


I love the different designs!



Day 9
Classic Wizard of Oz prints.  I can't adequately describe my obsession with the Wizard of Oz... I think these will have to be framed  ;D



Day 8
BUNTING!!! Just like I wisted!  The colors are perfect, and guess what? It's LEATHER WORK!!! I've never had anything leather worked before  :D  Brilliant!



Day 7
Bracelets! In bright colors!



Day 6
Puzzle piece magnets! With spideys :)



Day 5
Another leather-work item - bracelet! It's kind of hard to see, but the butterflies have a red tone to them.  It's very pretty.



Day 4
CUTE witch cards!



Day 3
Spooky Love.  I love this. No pun intended  ;)



Day 2
Awesome wrapped heart necklace.  This will go perfectly with my Halloween shirts!



Day 1
A Nightmare Before Christmas coffee table book! I LOVE the paper patterns and creative cut-outs.





Everything's awesome! Thanks for the great swap, gala_apples!

Some apple sugar candy from a 1912 cookbook(SO awesome) and orange taffy. She also threw in an extra that I opened on day 1. A "zombie" blood stained towel. I LOVE it!

Day 3.
These awesome mini frames with classic monsters. Momof2 is doing a heck of a job decorating my mantle!!!


Day 4.
A super cool sign that has already been hung, Pez(my fave!!!), and an awesome ghost that comes with a magnet pen...just like the old Wooly Willy. Loving everything so far!

An amazing painted sugar skull! I love this so much. It immediately went onto my mantle!

Day 13.
So sad that this is the last day, but I got some super fun witch coasters! Perfect for beer on football Sunday!



Momof2!, you have been such a great partner! I had a blast with this swap, yet again. I wish all of you craft ladies were in my life more often!  ;D

Those perlerbead magnet bones are awesome. I love that it forms a whole skeleton!

I also think that Oogie Boogie cross stitch is some great art.

Oh my goodness, the madness has begun!!!
The Oogie and Wicked Night cross stitches are magnificent!  Love 'em, want 'em.  The owl advent calendar is such a cool idea, and I love the cute little ghosties.

The Witch's Dance scene is cute.  Is it a chunky house? 
Watching your cat chew on those crocheted eyes is going to be quite a scene!
And oh so much candy!  It's making me want some chocolate. Hmmm, I think I might have some in the fridge.


Title: Re: Mini 13 Days of Halloween Gallery
Post by: La Chapa on October 01, 2013 03:59:40 PM
The NBC chunky house is awesome!  Love the lights and the mini zero!

Oh, my gosh, that is hilarious that your cat tore into his goodies early!  I actually, literally LOLed at that. Ha!
I love the skeleton/bones magnet idea!  I may have to steal that concept, sorry it's just too cool.

And I am absolutely in love with that pumpkin necklace.  The kitties are pretty, but I'm a pumpkin lover and I am seriously desiring that necklace.  It's going on my pinterest!  :)

I love the skeleton magnets!  Mom happened to be close by so I showed her too.  I can't believe those are the little melty plastic things I played with as a kid!  Those look so much cooler!

The Owl advent Halloween calendar is awesome!  What a great idea!

Sorry about the going down, instead of up Ffrogg.  I think that's how it was done last year w/the big swap.  I always tend to do things backwards.  :)  Everything is already so wonderful!

Just a suggestion for next years swap, I labeled my packages "October 1st" "October 2nd" etc just so there was no way my partner could get confused! I thought I was the only one confused by numbering days but clearly I'm not, so I thought I'd share my solution  :D


Title: Re: Mini 13 Days of Halloween Gallery

I labeled mine the same way, by date...which probably made me just assume that the 1 on my partners package was for October 1st. I should have doubled checked first, but she said it is ok to open them in either order. I decided to open the day 12 for October 2nd like she originally planned. So now my first and last days will be switched.


Title: Re: Mini 13 Days of Halloween Gallery
Post by: gotgrey on October 02, 2013 04:58:18 PM
W/what I sent, it doesn't really matter which is opened 1st or last.  I seriously got tired of packaging and numbering, and just said to hell w/it!  I just started putting things in packages and slapping a number on it.  :)

Title: Re: Mini 13 Days of Halloween Gallery
Post by: Ffrogg526 on October 02, 2013 06:12:18 PM
I didn't even number mine! :)  I told gotgrey she could open them in any order she deemed fit.  I also said that there were more than 13 so she gets to pick a few days when she opens more than one.  :D  ::)

I open up my gift before work every morning!  I can't wait a whole day LOL!

I only labeled one of my days which was the ornaments for the tree which wasn't wrapped since I had to kind of shove it in the box.  Otherwise there is no specific order....  So glad you are liking what I sent so far deadsweaters!  There is one item that I can't wait for you open cause I loved it so much and it was VERY hard for me to send to you.  I am also nervous about it having made it through shipping....

I am loving everything I have received and what others are getting.  LOVE this swap and time of year!


Title: Re: Mini 13 Days of Halloween Gallery
Post by: calixita on October 03, 2013 11:41:50 AM
I work until midnight so I get to open my gift whenever I get home from work since it's technically 'the next day'.   ;D  It's such a wonderful way for me to end my day.  Of course, I have to wait until the next day for better lighting to take photos and post them.  Speaking of photos, do you have a good pic of the wreath you sent me, Glamis?  My pictures really don't do it justice!!  I love those little toothy guys!!  Also, in case I (probably) forgot to mention it in a note, the earring wires are sterling in case you have any allergy issues!

I love all the cross stitch stuff and embroidery! The skeleton magnet is pretty cool too! Everyone is so talented! I had to pin the 3D wooden tree with ornaments by lindy!

I've been opening my stuff in the wee hours of the morning and posting pics otherwise I would almost be a day behind! Its like Christmas every day!

So much pinning to go do!

I'm glad you posted a link to the witch's room Ffrogg. My camera isn't the greatest, but, it's all I've got.  And, it's all I'll have until it dies.  :)  But, it gets the job done I suppose. Your pics are so way better!  :)  The witch's room deserves all the love it can get!

I really like that autumn leaf mobile too!!!

Yay!!  I'm so glad you like it!  The funny thing is, I already had all those supplies to make a spider hoop for myself...I got the idea when I found that fabric...but they I saw the little one on your pinterest and was like, yeah....I have to make that for her!  It was a hard one to send.  Haha.


This gallery is amazing.  Every single thing is awesome!  Everyone is going to be sooooo spoiled.

There's so much great stuff! I love the little witch owl, and that globe wreath with the black and orange balls. The voodoo wreath and the creepy candy corn statuette are really unique, they're awesome! I love those raven candles, and the shrines. And, my absolute favorite part of this swap so far is all the random places that googly eyes keep popping up.  ;D Great job everyone!

Oh, hey, it's after midnight. I'm going to go open another one!

La Chapa those are lotion bars! They should have had a message on them but with the postal fiasco it may have been lost. The mug was the item I wanted to keep LOL the store employees were also very interested in it. I did put the eyeball in the mug.  ;)

As with everyone else, I love the candy corn figure. I must starting pinning some of the goodies before I lose track of everything!

 Those mini books and shelf looked like quite a project!! :o

I've been having so much fun looking through this gallery! some really amazing things have been crafted this year. but! I have a possible tech question.. I can see most of the pics in this thread, but there are a few users (including my partner  :-\) that I am unable to see their pictures.. I can see the text but there is just a grey box where the picture would be. Does anyone know of a solution? Is it perhaps my browser?

Loving that zombie wreath, the birch tree candles holders and pretty Fall plate with the crows!  So much Halloween goodness!!  All the soaps and lotion bars look luscious!

Glamis, one of those tiny blank books should have read "Journal", not "Magazine".  Oops!  Darn you, google translate!  (and darn me because I should have done just a bit more research!)  I mostly made the little books while I was at work in the library and the shelf was created during my camping trip.  I did have fun with them!

Ffrog, the wooden coffin with the box inside the lid, should laugh when you open it. On the way home, after purchasing it, I hit a bump in the road. That damn thing popped open somehow, and I had to listen to it laughing at me all the way home!  The music note jewelry is for your Ren fair costume. I'm glad you looked inside the wood burned box and found it.

I thought so much. My translator gives me that too as an option but I never heard anyone use it. It is usually called Tagebuch. (Tag=day, buch=book). I already forgot about the camping item..haha..good to know! You used a milk carton, right?! Very clever (and green  ;))

I have been trying to post pictures all evening. When I go to modify my post to add them, the "choose a file" button is gone. I'm sure it has something to do with my computer, but I'm ready to pull my hair out. I'll keep trying !

On a very happy note..my pin it button is gone (no idea where it went), BUT I just realized if I hover my mouse over a picture here, it gives me the option to pin it!!! I have been griping because I couldn't pin all this awesome stuff.

Thank you so much for swapping with me deadsweaters!

OH NO!!  I knew the jar wouldn't make it!  As I'm sure you saw glue on the jar...lol...the skeletons were attached to the jar.



I think hot glue would have been a better choice than super glue.  :)

Finally had a chance to update my last two days of items to my gallery! ;D Love's been sick since last week and due to waking up coughing violently every 15 or so minutes, neither of us have slept in like 3 days. :-\ But he went to the doctor today and got meds so I hope he'll be better soon!

Meanwhile, I also posted two of my larger craft items (days 12 & 13) with their own threads if anyone wants to check 'em out.

Yarn and Felt Flower wreath: http://www.phoenixfiredesigns.com/blog/2013/10/yarn-and-felt-flower-halloween-wreath/
