An ATB decorated with an apothecary theme. The details are beautiful  This is going to be displayed all year.





Day 4
A color changing day of the dead skull (with a few extra photos taken in a dark room).  This is so very cool!!!




Day 5
YESSSSS!  I put in my swap questionnaire that I'd love a supply package.  Killam Creative is one of the best papercrafters I know, I'm so happy she decided to share some of her fabulous stash with me!  I can't decide what my favorite is, I love it all!





Day 6
I've always admired her crystal stick pins and she sent me two gorgeous skull ones.  These will not be worn just at Halloween.  :)


Day 7
Fabulous Halloween fabrics with a vintage vibe.  I can't wait to use this!  


Day 8
A Halloween themed mini altered book which was also on my wish list.  I am getting a ton of crafting inspiration from this little gem, so many creative techniques!






Day 9
Today I opened the most beautiful card ever.  Words can't express how much I love this.  It's like a master class in composition.  I'll never use this for a card, it's going to have a permanent spot in my art display.  Thank you so much!!!   :-*



Day 10
I received a stunning papercraft bunting featuring Graphic 45 papers.  I can't imagine how long those paper medallions must have taken.   :o  Just gorgeous!


Day 11
Today I opened an incredible mix of fun stuff.  She sent me some of the most gorgeous handmade papers, some have embossed images on them.

Supplies!  Chipboard cutouts!  Haunted houses, clock faces, spooky trees, honeycomb, swirls...  I can't decide which I like the best.   :)

This absolutely blows my mind.  A fully articulated skeleton!  I can't imagine the amount of time it took to do this.  Wowza!


Day 12
I put on my questionnaire that I would love a chunky Halloween house to add to my ever-expanding neighborhood and boy, did she deliver!  It's so texture-y and sparkly and shiny and amazing.  I love it!



Day 13
For my last day, Killam Creative sent me the sweetest felted pumpkin with a 'carved' face.  It's amazingly creative!  I couldn't resist photographing him with the three felted pumpkins she sent me for day 1 in front of one of my spooky chunky house neighborhoods. 


Thank you so much, Killam Creative, you have spoiled me rotten!   :-*

*pointing* 'Claimed!' - Daryl, TWD

Day One:
Each gift has a sweet sketch on the outside package.
Neat Halloween brads, try to imagine more candy (totally ate them), and a pumpkin sketch with swirling fall leaves:



Sederick painted a Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde skull! He even painted the inside, and secured a rotating color light with an on off switch. And by secured, I mean it looks as if he did some mini soldering, and then fastened into place so it won't move.

I love the incredible duality of this skull. What a steady hand! It will be staying out year-round:




Day Two:
A wonderful CHARM LADEN bracelet. I think just about every link has something dripping from it, yet is relatively light. Sederick included these neat orange/fall beads. It kinda reminds me of a harvest moon. And I'm pretty positive each of the tombstones are handmade. Well done!

Also, fish hook earrings with sepia tones skulls. Yummmm!




Today's package is a sweet witch (matches the bracelet), dimensional stickers, and...more candy I already ate.



Day Three:
It's best to start with the package for this one. I listed loving gargoyles as one of my Halloween items. I know it's not standard, but I wrike what I wrike, right?

So when I saw the bag I tried NOT to get too excited. Hello, sweet gargoyle bag and pretty ghost white kitteh! Also...look. We all know I just ate the candy. But it was there. For real-sies.



 But in this case, it was the BEST kind of foreshadowing:



<BOOM>

What up, little monsterous cutie!? He's cranky and crabby, just like I like em! He's super textured, and can you see the slight redish transparency of his front horns? He's even grasping his wings in dramatic intimidation. Swooooon!

He's cute coming AND going. Check out his rumpus:


Look at that little whippy tail! And the little cutie stamp. Reminds me of My Little Ponies (originals) which speaks to my 80s worshipping heart.

Minor bad news was he arrived in bits. Tail, horns, and one ear were all popped off! After my first moment of panic, I realized it was just at the connection point. Whew! I used all my epoxy, so instead broke out my glue gun and resecured his needed appendages.

Man. I do love this little guy. Thank you, Sederick. Totally nailed this one. He's in a permanent place on a mini ledge.

Day Four:

I'm starting again with the package as Sederick is King of Foreshadowing:

Looks like..are those insects over Mister Mummy? I also received more Halloween brads. And never forget about the invisible candy I ate. Like a child, no control.



THEY ARE! Bugs! Insects! I posted these individually instead of collage style, because the labels are hi.ste.ri.cal. for serious!:

Three:
Harry Grosseum Arachnis
Mulan Province 1911

Toomanyleggs Antbiteum
Morocco 1909

Disgustingus Beetleus
South America 1912



Two:
Scorpiones Buttpokerus
Nevada 1908
This specimen bit my companion
causing him great distress

Musca Domestica Biggie
gross - Saskatchewan 1902




One:
Arachnida Arthropoda
Bigassium Harryus
Virginia 1904
This specimen seems to be very
common but hides quite well.
Extremely poisonous you
never know when they
will resurface




Each is mounted on black with gold burnishing. The insects are a beautiful copper, with sepia washed identifiers. I will be hanging these as a group. Welcome to my home! Here, look at my neat bugs!

Intermission: Bonus!

Sederick sent bonus items! The first is (I believe) his own artwork! Nice, digital print.



And then extra flat Halloweenie items. I have wanted to try out some book mods:



We now return to our regularly scheduled program

Day Five:

This bag features a sweet mouse with gobs of candy. Bet nobody can guess what happened to all of those. What's funny is, I'm not even a candy person! Swear! But your couldn't tell by the complete lack of sugary goodness here. Shameful, really.

Also, extra skellies. Niiiiice



Sederick made a Day of the Dead themed skeleton with Autumn leaf wings.I REALLY want to know how he bent the knee without snapping him like a toothpick!





Narrow brush marks with repetitive, colorful dots.  Even tiny little beads on the wrists. And he has a hook at the back of his head for hanging.

Evil little pixie!

Day Six:
I was a little puzzled by today's artwork package.  But since I love aliens/space stuff, I didn't question it too much. I just figured, SWEET! I bet I can use him for something later!

Also, little dimensional skeletons.




BUT SNAP! Check out this sweet piece of altered art!



THAT'S RIGHT, PEOPLE! THE ALIENS HAVE ARRIVED!! And en masse! What is a group of UFO's called, anyway? A murder [of crows?] A knot [of frogs?]  probably just something boring. You know like, a fleet....

Kidding.

Anyway, here is an angle shot to show his 3D affect. 4 of the fleet are secured with foam to lift them off the cow pasture. The larger, mother ship is mounted just underneath the glass, also giving the frame a bleed affect.



I love this piece! I have an altered art pin board, but I am also currently hosting the Aliens and Robots Swap (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=450335.msg5411544#msg5411544) (y'all should come check it out. It's gonna be A.Time.!). Sederick definitely stalked me, because I didn't list this on my Q, and my package came way before I posted!

Thank you!

Day Seven:
Werewolf sketch and ghost sticker. Hummmmm...interesting




Until you see these suckers!



Seasonal dog collars for my puppers! Gah! I tried them on, and they both fit great! It's too dark at my house to get action shots, but I will do so tomorrow!

I love my puppers so much, I am thrilled beyond words to get something for them! I think these are the ones your wife made? Please make sure to tell her I said thank you!

Day Eight:
CANDY. Halloween brads (in plotting a craft for these guys) and a bag with dancing skeleton



A PIRATE shrine candle in really heavy glass!



Okay, it might not have been intended to be a pirate, but there ARE crossbones, and one of the things I listed was how I decorate for Halloween with some pirate motifs. Random, I know, but it works for me. So...I'm claiming pirate shrine candle. Already sitting out.


*REWIND*
It finally stopped raining so I was able to take the puppers out in good light. Little Girl sat still as a statue (or a gargoyle!) and posed, Little Boy was a smidge more difficult. His groom is growing out and when looking at me, his drapey ears and fur completely covers the collar, so he has a profile shot.

Halloween prepped puppers:



Day Nine:
Super fun faux wine label stickers. I'm thinking about using these in papercraft project:


The bag features a graveyard, and I received a mini, painted coffin. The stippling is really well done, in mossy colors:



Inside the coffin is a creeptastic vingette! A scientific la-BOAR-ah-tor-ee (say it with a British accent. It sounds more legit.):



My favorite is the gazing globe and they ghosts with different eyes. Nice!


Day Ten
Happy little pumpkin on today's bag, and cardstock stickers:



A neat, Go Away box, FILLED with insects. Man, these need to be made into something, alright:



And buried underneath the crawlies...were these little gems:



That's right. Sederick made original art for me! I knew it was a stretch, but in my Q, I listed wanting to see what Halloweenies did in the off season.

So, he modded some table top cards into snapshots of mundane life moments:
Confused Dracula posting a dating profile on CandyConnections
Disgruntled Mummy, selling burgers and fries at the mall
Creature from Black Lagoon sweatin a wide awake baby
Ghost thrilled to get his soft serve ice cream at the carnival
Miami Vice Werewolf, pushin a grass cutter in his jorts

I can't express how much I love these little pieces of art. They are so bright and clever. These will be going in a frame.

Day Eleven:
Sederick is funny:


I should have taken a photo as to how he wrapped this gift. It was so intriguing! I both fiddled with it, and didnt, scared I would break it. I'm so glad I quit, because I may have snapped something.

This is Skinny Skeleton. 'Skinny' for short:


If you've ever seen Flat Stanley, you will get Skinny. His body is flat, black jean material, with a painted skeleton. His hands and feet are black SPOONS! His head is...I think it's lightweight pressed wood, but Sederick gave him dimension with perpendicular pieces, so he could fit a rotating color light inside. He's fun! I've already hung him in my kitchen.

I'd just like to give a shout out to my partner here. I mentioned loving assemblage. Sedericks wheelhouse is miniatures! The smallest I could get were peg people and mini plushes! Thank you so much for pushing outside your zone. I LOVE Skinny, and really appreciate your efforts.

Day Twelve:
Annnnnnd now I see why the dogs kept walking by, smelling the air!



Sederick - can you send me the tutorial you used for these? My puppers went bananas for them!


Day Thirteen:

Sederick wrapped up the package with some final sketches in my note:




There was a wee ghostie, too, but it's buried in the letter.

For a partner who said he didn't do extras...methinks his ' Not doing extras' and my ' Not doing extras' differ greatly! GOBS OF EXTRAS in the package and on the last day. And I love them, so I'm not complaining! But man, I shoulda sent extras!



And the gift!



Reuseable ghost bag, HUGE burgundy coffee mug (this is BEAST!), New teeth with my own bagged blood, a hand on a stick (who doesn't need to eat one of those in a lifetime?), neat magnetic container, dog biscuits for the puppers, candy corn coffee (are you kidding me with this??? Gah!), and, well, look. I'm nothing if not consistent...a missing bag of multi-chocolate coated coffee beans that's we're FRACKIN AMAZEBALLS.


Sederick - you (and Shannon) were wonderful to swap with. I'm sad it's over, but so happy we were paired, and hope you feel the same!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, and Blessed Be!

\m/   JoyfulClover

Here's the package from Missing Willow!



I finally got to open the first 3 days!

Day 1: The table is set for a ghoulishly good time!


Day 2:  An art doll witch! I admit I squealed and got a little happy-teary when I opened her.




Day 3:  A wee trick-or-treater in true vintage costume style!


Day 4: OMG. A fantastic selection of homemade goat milk soaps. They smell SOOO good!


Day 5: A batty bar set and 3 gin recipes.  SQUEE!


Day 6: Ooh, this one is super special. We spent hours doing pottery together last summer. I love knowing the space she sat in while making this wee shrine.  This brings back fun memories!


Day 7: A wicked little mantle!


Day 8: A mug, mug rug, and a little bit o' sweet! I love this glaze, MW. ...Wait a minute. There are pockets in my mug rug!


Day 9: A pewter serving tray with a rat! It has candy on it now. Perfect! The Halloween coasters are reversible - I'm in love wth the dancing skelly. :)


Day 10: Ok, so this altered tin made me weak in the knees. MW, you win. I adore this scene. No lie - I stared at the moon last night wondering if he really *does* see me. Sigh.

Also - The green felt grass is fantastic, the ceramic moon is perfect, and the bunny melts me.

Day 11: These bowls! I'm so fancy now. And hungry for Pimento Cheese! Yours is so good and I appreciate that you sent your recipe. Yum!

Gah! I just realized the gold paint doesn't show well -- the houses and bowl base are all gold. Fancy!

Day 12: Spider Scarf! Eek! I love it so much.

This morning in bed I watched a spider walk around a small area above the bed. It looked to be making a web on the ceiling surface... why? Is it going to have babies and the web helps them from falling in their first hours? ::shudder:: I should go back in there and check, right? I mean, it's over my bed.

Day 13: Halloween kitchen towels! I was secretly hoping MW would send something embroidered. Killam Manor makes me so happy!


Missing Willow - thank you SO MUCH! This has been a fun swap with a special partner. ::smooches::

Here he is!  The coolest (in a fabulous dorky way!) Halloween cat!!

Look at that face!

And the little skull in his hand!

I love him!!!

DAY 8

Today I opened a super pretty orange and black necklace!

I think the beads are Czech pressed glass which I love for it's vintage feel.  It's really a perfect Fall necklace!

day 8

Today's present was bulky and now I realize it was because it is of deep scientific import!  Check out my specimen box!!!

My latin isn't what it once was (oh no wait!, I never learnt Latin!) but I think they're of the 'sharp toothed' variety pixie.
I'll cherish these very rare specimens!!

and here is a photo of my cat Loch sitting in the box, now bereft of Halloween goodies.

I finally received and could open three days at once. Yeaj. ;D Canīt really understand smeddleys swap anxiety  ??? She wrapped everything eco friendly in fabrics scraps, love it.

First there were some awesome extras:

zombie duckies! Their eyes crack me up  :D



Some zombie bubbles (that I entertained the bus stop with and that made some bypassing hardcore looking truckers smile very big), supercool zombie stitch markers, and really pretty..eh..horrible "Refleshmints". The mints inside are tiny brains <3



And the (hopeyfully infamous by now) book of explaining for each day



Smeddley and I are making this a horror movie swap and every day is dedicated to one of our favorite movies

Day 1: Shining

Magnificent magnets with the carpet design, the creepy twins, the redrum door writing and the all work and no play makes jack a dull boy pages. Can you ever have too much magnets?



Day 2: 28 days later

A kreepy key chain.That is way too pretty to become scratched and dented on a keyring and screams to be a pendant. Plus it reminds me of the tunnel scene in the movie



Day 3: The silence of the lambs

a nifty movie poster necklace and a beautiful bracelet that has subtle references to the deathīs head moth (the shades of brown, the skulls and the moth closure)



bracelet close up



Day 4: Zombieland

Snazzy zombie socks to keep my toes toasty during the zombie apocalypse. They even fit my chubby calves!



Day 5: Ringu (The ring original)

Can you spot it?



Itīs a dreadful Sadako doll. Smeddleys friend Cryssoleil painted the face and she made the shift dress. Thankfully there was no video to watch...



Day 6: What we do in the shadows

So today I was so clever to open day 9 instead of day 6  :-\
Nevertheless, there was this viscous viago peg doll in his casket. The details are very delicate. As smeddley already said, if you havenīt seen this movie yet, you really should!



Day 7: Texas chainsaw massacre

Was this chunky terrifying texas chainsaw massacre magnet that is joining the shining magnets on my fridge



Day 8: Hellraiser

A blood-curling cenobite. I always wanted to make a pinhead pincushion but now I am glad I never did because my stitches would not have been half a neat as Smeddleys.



Days 9: Shaun of the dead

A spooky Shaun funko pop. He is so much more handsome than the real thing. Is it wrong to be attracted to a funko?



Day 10: Texas chainsaw massacre

A truculent tiny creepy crocheted chainsaw. Made with cotton yarn. Look at all the minuscule stitches. And the grey saw part is armed with wire to keep it in shape.



Day 11: Night of the living dead

My favortie movie. Yeah! A
"horrible" hoop with the iconic quote from the movie. The stitches are so perfect. Love it



Day 12: Evil dead

A nasty necronomicon needlebook. How cool is that?! Best needlebook ever



Last day (sniff  :'(): Return of the living dead

A gruesome needle goblet. Such a cool idea.



Thank you Smeddley for an awesome horror movie swap. I love every single item and you really should not be so insecure about your crafting skills.  ;)
And thanks to the moderator of course!

Post by: kittykill on June 29, 2016 08:50:20 AM
I forgot to take pics of all of my stuff together. Anyhoo! Here is my first day. Per my partner's instructions, I am starting with 13 and working my way down to 1.

Here we go! Yummy candy! I LOVE gummies and these are the best. Sour and gummie! I am dying over the card. I plan on saving them all and framing them. Also, this beautiful crow bookmark. I am using it right now. Thanks for an awesome first day!



I have been out of town for a few days so I am catching up:

Day 12:
The monster and his bride! I put this on my mantle, I am trying to figure out a way to have both sides show. I will probably put a little mirror up to do it.




Day 11:
The picture does not do it justice. This uber cool crow skull necklace! I can not wait to wear it!




Day 10:
A little pumpkin ornament for my tree. I love his little expression.



Day 9:
Another awesome ornament! I LOVE this style of Halloween cat. Awesome felt stitching skills!



Day 8:
Another wonderful ornament! I love crows so much. This one is going to stay out all year long.


Day 7:
My very own Frankenstein's monster cozie! He is so stinking cute!



Day 6:
I am over the moon with these towels! They will stay out all year long. The star witch ornament will go on my tree.



Day 5:
These earrings are the BOMB! Look at how tiny the beads are? And FRANKIEEEEE!!!



Day 4:
OMG! I am a monster when I sleep! I can not wait to see what the dogs do when I wear this.



Day 3:
Stir sticks for my spooky cocktails! These are the best! I think I might use them in a dried floral design.



I think I lost count of my days! Anyhoo, I got this AMAZING altered book that is full of beautiful pics, recipes and stories. It is so much fun!




Day 2:
CROOOOWWWWW! This little gal is the best and will stay out all year long.  I can change her hat to fit the season. Look at the cutest little pumpkin!




Day 1:
The most amazing beaded cuff ever! It is stunning!


I also received a little extra Halloween banner and Frankenstein napkins. Thank you SOOOO much for everytyhing, Calixita! You are an amazing partner!

Days 1-9 arrived! The tags all have little had-drawn clues on them, some I think I know what movie they're referring to, others...  have me stumped (though I'm sure it'll be obvious when I open them!).  C'mon, October 1st!



Aaaaand, the rest of the days arrived and my partner received so it's time to binge-open and catch up!  :D


(all of it, except the candy - gummy bears in the first batch, some awesome chocolates in the second... you can't expect that to last around me!)

Day one - MegaPiranha!  Seriously fun, ridiculous movie about huge mutant fish.



Look at this!  How pretty is he?  Except, you know, those teeth!  Glamis said she thought I might sew it on to a Bellydance costume, and I really want to!  What fun would that be, the audience staring and going... "is that a... piranha?"  Hehehehe!  (we're a humorous troupe, so it would very much go with our themes...)

Day two - Coraline!  I know, I know, but it IS listed on some lists as one of the scariest movies ever, so I went with it because it's an awesome movie!



And I'm so sorry about the quality of the picture, but it's super cloudy/rainy out and my house is dark at the best of times... you can't see the details so well, but each flag on the bunting has a different pattern.  Really well done and super cute!  I'm going to hang it off a shelf in my office at home, but I couldn't take a picture of it there because it is super super dark in that room... (it's my cave!).

Day three - What We Do In The Shadows - if you have not seen this movie, you need to.  It's Spinal Tap meets Dracula.



I love things to hang on my wall, and I'll chuckle every time I look at the lineup from the movie!  It's definitely going up on the wall in my craft room... as soon as I can get into my craft room (there was a cleaning binge in the rest of the house that resulted in everything being dumped in that room...).

Day four - I'm not going to say what movie this is from, because it's a HUGE, MASSIVE spoiler.



It's also one of my worst nightmares, being buried alive!  And what great artwork!  Also going up on the craft room wall post-haste... well, post-cleaning... :D

Day five - Evil Dead/Evil Dead 2/Army of Darkness.  Who doesn't love Ash?  Who doesn't love Ash with a chainsaw hand?!?!



Sorry for the bad photo, raining again here, no outdoor pictures...  you can't see the details too well, but his chainsaw is marvelously constructed!

Day six - Grabbers.  If you have not seen this movie, you need to.  It's Richard Coyle, who played Jeff on the British (really, should have been the ONLY version of the show) Coupling, on an island, with tentacle monsters who won't eat you if you're drunk.  Really drunk.  I know, I know, it sounds like a super cheesy monster movie but it's awesome.

And so is this.

Hold on to your hats, people, this is really one of my favorite things EVER.  I mean, okay, I have a lot of favorite things I've gotten, but this really is great.



Shot glasses!  Which, okay, yes, awesome, but if you could see them in person!  I'm about to spam you with some pictures, but really, they don't do them justice (I've seen a lot of swapped etched glass, I know it's tough to get a good picture, and I'm amazed at the people brave enough to send glass - I'm also currently drinking out of one of my Dr Who glasses sent to me by Calixita!).

 

Seriously, this would have been enough (not that I'm sending the rest of the stuff back, because I love it too and want to keep it, but... I just want to convey my true appreciation of this... ).  I'm not worthy! (but I'm still keeping them, and will have a celebratory tentacle-monster repellent shot tomorrow to celebrate - it kills me not to have one now, but I'm donating blood tomorrow and can't be dehydrated...)

(Sorry about not posting, family emergency/near tragedy this weekend, thankfully only ended with the loss of material things, but it was iffy)

Day seven - Psycho! I'd never actually seen this movie until recently, and I have to say it holds up very well (why a remake, why?!?!). Glamis scaled this down to half size and I'm so impressed, it's so tiny and adorable!



Day eight - Zombieland! One of the best zombie movies out there, for sure! And look at these tiny tiny tiny stitches! My eyes cross just thinking about stitching that up!  And I do have a love of Twinkies...



Day nine - shark movies... I honestly can't remember what I listed, I think there were a few... Sharktopus, Bait, Ghost Shark...  so many...



OMG, OMG, how awesome is this? I looooooooove this bag! Love it! I seriously am not worthy of my partner!

Day ten - Nightmare on Elm Street - a blast from the past that has held up remarkably well! Glamis said she's not done a lot of paper crafting, but I think this is awesome, and I wouldn't have the patience for all those cuts...



The back:



Day eleven, from my questionnaire I mentioned I loved Bunnicula...



A coffee cup cozy! Perfect for at work, where we have very thin paper cos that burn your fingers...

Days twelve and thirteen, which I'm posting together because... SHAUN OF THE DEAD!



She said they were supposed to be half the size, and I know that feeling... the number of times I've crocheted or knitted something and you're just... "whoa, how did this get so BIG?!"  And look at the details!  The red on Shaun, the Stubble on Ed...





Thank you Glamis, you have been an AWESOME partner!!!!

Wow! What an amazing bag! It's a "saddlebag" style and it's just so nicely sewn. I LOVE the fabrics too. There's even a zippered pocket inside. Impressive. The note on the outside said aisy thought it was her favorite item for the swap and I can see why!

Mine.  My own.  My.... gallery!



Day 1:  COOKIES!  Om Nom Nom.  These were awesome.  I ate too many in one sitting.
 

Day 2: Wall art!  I seriously love these, and they're living in my office cubicle helping to make me feel more festive.


Day 3: More art.  I am so jealous of woodburning skills.  I mostly just burn my hands.  This is also at my office, and this will stay up year round because this is so me.


Day 4: Socks and Glow In The Dark Nail Polish (what?!)


Day 5: Coffin box with cool skelly guy rising from the grave
 

Day 6: Coloring book (for slow work days) and sweet wall bats that are so going on my wall for my halloween party
 

Day 7: Pumpkin sour candy and little ghosties!  I so love the trio of little guys.
 

Day 8:  Nosferatu.  Nuff said.  He's looming over my cube wall these days, reminding my neighbor what a weirdo I am.


Day 9: Movie night!  She sent me her favorite halloween movie, Trick R Treat, which I've never seen but I'm super stoked to watch.


Day 10: Tentacle shot glass.  I collect shot glasses, and this thing is bada**.  I love how the tentacles go around and over the lip of the glass.


Day 11: Rising full moon dream catcher.  This thing... THIS THING!  IS AWESOME!


Day 12:  Fudge!  Get in my belly.  Dunno if she made it, dunno if she bought it... don't really care.  Awesome.


Day 13: Blingy skull door knocker.  Yep, this is living in my cube year round as well.


Thank you so much chase_acow!  This was an awesome swap package.  My roommate was impressed and jealous.  He'd never heard of craft swaps before.

MINE MINE MINE



Day the first. My partner has graced me with these amazing Hallmark tea light holders. As my wife said.. they are totally me. :)


Day 2. Someone has been checking my pinterest :) I opened a beautiful cut out tree picture. It is already hanging up


Day 3. I recieved this very cool bat and pumpkin. They are going on the tree and the butterflies are going in our room with the Fairies :)


Day 4 Joyfulclover really outdid herself. My wife immediately squeed upon seeing this Sam Hain pillow. it is definitely a year round couch item.. LOVE


Day 5. I really like this and it will be staying out all year. It is the phases of the moon made in felt and will probably be going near our altar. Thank you SOOO much. :)


Day 6. I love love this sign. It is woodburned (I am pretty sure) onto a wood round. It is amazing and fits perfectly in our home. Thank you thank you :) This is another year rounder




Day 7 today I received 4 awesome kitchen towels. I love the stripes and Shannons fav is the cat with the feathery tail



Day 8. Not Halloween but holy crap do I not care. I LOVE this shirt. The art is very cool and she must have stalked me. I love Wonder Woman and not in a weird way. She is an amazing andpowerful character and I think this art really catches her. Thank you so much




Day 9 Nightmare Before Christmas Peg Dolls! I love the movie and actually have a collection of NMBC items. As the pictures show they went straight on the tree. The Sally is my fav.. she is very well done :)


Day 10..What? already?? Well.. I was wondering why my cat kept sniffing the package.. now I know. Catnip cat toys and an awesome flask for me!



Day 11 - in my pinterest are these amazing painted cats and joyfulclover captured one perfectly. I love this. Check out the amazing detail. Thank you for being an amazing partner


Day 12 I LOVE pin-up art.. and witches.. so this is perfect. I love this art (and so does Shannon) Another Hit!

Day 13. also known as the saddest day. I saved the largest box for last and it was awesome. I am a huge Stephen King fan and these bookends are pretty sweet. They are free standing and very heavy




Thanks so much for being my partner JoyfulClover. I am sure we have all been flaked on once or twice but we were both very happy! Most of the items I received from you are staying out all year.. no joke.
I seem to recall I was the one who said no extras.. mostly because I didnt need any :) I had not planned on sending any either but all the items that were included were things we already had around the house so I felt no guilt *L* Traditionally I send a box full of candy on the 13th but you dont do candy but liked coffee.. so coffee :)
Thank you to the organizer.. we couldnt have this fun without your hard work so it is much appreciated

Post by: FiberAlchemist on July 08, 2016 12:39:50 PM
All the lovely things KarenLouiseM sent...

Day 1
Some yummy fall inspired treats!  A mini pumpkin bread and pumpkin spice chocolate truffles.  There was also a small book to keep recipes (the pumpkin bread one was already inside!) and the card is from the outside of the package.


Day 2
It's a calendar for the month of October.  All of the tags from the packages are the first 13 days to use on the calendar! Clever Girl!! And when you open the back days 14 - 31 are inside!


Day 3
A teeny tiny candy corn under glass. So freakin' cute!
*quarter for scale

Day 4
A quartet of goodies to "deck my halls".  Two buntings, that I hung my kitchen, a door hanger and a decorated spool!  My house is starting to feel spooky.


Day 5
Today I opened this amazing haunted house picture.  It is a glittery house with little three dimensional pumpkins and a spider.  I love the details of cats and bats in the windows and the whole scene is under a clear dome.  So cool!


Day 6
A little skeleton holding a halloween bunting. He even has a little lacy collar and a golden crown.  He came with a little placard that reads "Once Upon an Eerie Tale" adorned with owls and spiders.


Day 7
Today blew me away!  Karen sent a beautiful Halloween shrine! Each of the cubbies contains different little bottles, pumpkins, books (that actually open!), and general vintage goodness. Thank you so much, this is a work of art!


   

Day 8
Two fossils, a bat and a spider, mounted on chunky canvases. I'm not going to lie, the spider kind of gives me the creeps.


Day 9
Day nine brings a miniature graveyard scene in a little coffin box.  There's so much detail from the skeleton to the little headstones perched on top of the coffin.


Day 10
One of my favorite things is Harry Potter. Karen made two baby mandrake roots in tiny pots. I think Professor Sprout would approve. :)


Day 11
Today is three faux candles.  The outsides are decorated with different patterned burlap, rick rack, ribbon and trim with the little pompoms.  They each have a cool vintage style paper label on the front. The center of each one lifts out so you can turn on a batter operated candle.  Vey cool.


Day 12
A Burtonesque wreath! The body of the wreath is covered in black feathers with bits of white and silver sparkle mixed in.  There is a Christmas ball painted to look like Jack Skellington! And the black and white tube ribbon reminds me of the sandworms from Beetlejuice.


Day 13
So far I have been so impressed by everything Karen has sent; but today she blew me away! She sent an amazing miniature apothecary cabinet inspired by my love of Harry Potter. The amount she included and the detail of every object is impeccable; from the potion bottles, to the little cauldrons to the Olivander's box complete with a tiny wand.

I'll plant my flag here.

woops, forgot to take a group photo! my bad.  :  )  Thank you so much for everything! I'm enjoying myself so far.

*


first up is a beware banner, that i hung in the kitchen b/c i have been putting off dishes, and things are starting to get a little dangerous. also, is this little Sam pendent! He's adorable. Trick'R'Treat is one of my favorite halloween movies!

*


socks and dangerous candy!  Good think I like to live dangerously. *pops a poisoned pill*

*
Here is two days worth. The first was the glass skull, and shots, packaged in the bigger bag which is super adorable fabric.

And the second day was the picture, which is applied to a wooden plaque and cute little baubles attached to tiny canvases!

*


Here we have a super adorable pumpkin bag, a cosmetic mirror dressed up for halloween, and a small tissue holder in awesome fabric!

*



Fun stuff! A gargoyle, a blinged pumpkins, some magnets, and a great chainsaw pole pen!  :  )  Guess what's going to work with me?!?

*



Great altered Krampus box with day of the dead skull suckers inside!

*



A fun little skull mug! And the most adorable AND well made little mug rug. I love the fabric so much, I'll be excited to use this year round.  :  )

* SO BEHIND!



My partner really picked out the cutest fabric to make all the bags and pouches out of. I'm really excited about the stationary package up there with the pen/pencil case and the ATC maker/embellish kit down there. Probably I'll use all the fun Halloween bits and bobs elsewhere as I have recently become obsessed with bullet journaling, but they're gonna look great! Also, the kitty was very curious.

*



*



CUPCAKES! Of an unknown origin, but I'm super excited to find out what they are! Also so much sprinkles and whatnot! It finally got a little chilly around here, so baking won't be so miserable.

*
12th and last goodie! I like this a lot and it'll be super easy to build a display from.  Thank you halblingefrau!

Day 2

Day 6
Cute kitty in a pumpkin costume! Heehee.

Four awesome ghost themed kittybutt mats, err, placemats.

Fun tiki god wall hanging but I'm going to use him on the table so he is looked at more.

Post by: Alexampersandra on July 08, 2016 06:31:04 PM
I have received! And I think Gimli (the kitty) was just as excited as I was...


Gimli is particularly interested in that little turquoise one. I have freedom because nothing is numbered and there's more than 13 individual items! Oh the possibilities! Also, the handsome gentleman in the middle (the hatted bird, not Gimli) was not wrapped so he is like an up-front bonus! Oh and there's one other package that I realized wasn't in the picture, but by then I had put everything back in the box and hid it in the laundry closet because of Gimli's interest in all the things. I can't wait to open things!!!

October 1
My cat always tells me what to do so I opened the turquoise package he was so interested in first. And then it made sense, because it was 3 little candy corn catnip mousies!

There's also a short video of him playing with it here: http://alexampersandra.blogspot.com/2016/10/gimli-and-his-candy-corn-mousie.html (http://alexampersandra.blogspot.com/2016/10/gimli-and-his-candy-corn-mousie.html)
And since I have a few spare items to open over the next 13 days, I decided to open two small ones today, and I found this bracelet:

So pretty, and in my favorite colors! I already have my work outfit for Monday picked out to go with it  ;D

October 2
Lights! I can't decide where to put my little bats!


October 3
Such pretty cross-stitching!


October 4
Mason jar! (And the Goober, aka Gimli.)

And some close-ups:



October 5
Magnets!!! I love magnets! Gimli thinks the spider is tasty (I got it away from him before he could do any damage).



October 6
I'm out of town for a conference so I had to open something early... Gimli seemed to like these fluffy Halloween-y socks, and so do I!


October 7
Gimli did not participate but I unwrapped this great skull candle!


October 8
Mug cake! It comes with a little mix to make an orange vanilla (YUM) cake!


October 9
I'm pretty sure the past three (fuzzy socks, candle, and mug cake) were meant to be opened on these days, in preparation for the hurricane! So much of Virginia Beach that never floods is totally blocked, overpasses in Norfolk are completely full of water... it's a little insane. Obviously nothing like what people in Florida, South Carolina, Haiti, etc. are dealing with, but still worse than we expected.

Anyway, on to today's unwrappings!

No Gimli in this photo because I think he heard thunder and went into hiding.
I love Tootsie Roll Pops!!! And look, you can see that one of the new lemon-flavored ones is in there! Yum! I love the little coffin box painted with ooze... and the sparkly little spider pins were inside. I love them!!!

October 10
A banner! (It spells out "BOO" in candy corn pennants!) Work was closed today because of residual flooding and power outages but I plan to put this high up in my doorway at work tomorrow!


October 11
I love this!!!!! It's from Walking Dead, for those of you who aren't familiar (and I like to read it "Don't dead, open inside" for giggles). And it's SO SPARKLY!  :D


October 12
Pendants! They're two-sided so there's two photos:


I think the owl might be my favorite but it's so hard to choose!

October 13
Last one! It's an AMPERSAND! With spiderwebby print on front and back and black/orange SPARKLES on the edge! I love it!!!


Thank you for everything cadet, I love it all!!!  ;D I feel so ready for Halloween now!

Here are my goodies from the lovely gala_apples!!!
First, a picture of the whole box of loot, and one of the card:



Day 1:
I got a really awesome pocket-letter set of ATCs!! Those googly eyed bats are the CUTEST. Gah.



Day 2:
New book to read today, yippie! And check out these cute bookmarks. gala_apples must have discovered that I collect them. :)



Day 3: A set of super pretty notecards! I already used one for a friend's birthday this week. :)



Day 4: Check out this hoop! It's fantastic, especially the colors! And now if a certain dead guy shows up at my house, I'll know why.



Day 5: Dia de los Muertos art! I love the little fishbones in the eyes.


Day 6: Another pocket letter, and this one is all The Addams Family!!! I absolutely adore Cousin It, and Morticia's roses made me giggle. They're all great! :)


Day 7: Pirate notecards! These are great!



Day 8: More pirates today! These pirate pillow covers are gorgeous, and perfectly match the colors of the other pillow I have on my couch! Sorry if the one looks overstuffed, my pillow form was a bit big.


Day 9: Monster gift tags. So cute!



Day 10: A bat shrine. I love bats!



Day 11: Nightmare Before Christmas notecards! I'm already thinking of people I want to send these to! :)

Mine  ;D

I received a wonderful package from FiberAlchemist!  Sorry for the delay in posting, just arrived back in town last night - and am having internet issues!  So, hope I can get this out there using my phone as a hotspot.  Packages are all super cute - love the black and white paper and the twine (and candy corn fabric!)

Day 1 - this is SO nice in person.  The fabric is fantastic and the banner is really well sewn.  Fully reversible too!

(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=704450) (https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=704448)
(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=704449) (https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=704451)
and Day 2 - great alchemist label magnets - these are super thick - like very heavy duty chipboard.  Putting them on my spice shelf baskets!

(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=704453)
Day 3 - check out the cuteness!  Enough washcloths to last the whole month (there's another layer!) and a lovely bar of soap.  I have no Halloween decor out yet - these make me want to get everything else out and really spook the place up - well, at least for now my bathroom looks festive.

Day 4! Totally love this, immediately hung on the wall!  
Day 5 - Super cute Halloween cup and yummy looking cocoa - chocolate, mint & raspberry!

Day 6 is perfect for me - I love me some Scrabble - and even though I have crafted tons of stuff with Scrabble tiles, I never got around to making any decorations for myself.
Day 7 just might be my favorite so far.  Something about these little pumpkins just pegged my "adorable" meter all the way up  ;D  (BTW, much cuter in person, the colors are better.)  FiberAlchemist - it's like you're in my head!  A few years ago I made a LOT of small pumpkins for the Thanksgiving table, mostly in velvety fabrics.  Every year when I get them out I think, I need to add some cute, cotton Halloween pumpkins to round this out for October!  
Oh goodness, I got distracted and forgot to post.  So, here are days 8, 9, 10 and the "extras" I opened on day 7.  (Sorry for sideways pics - having trouble with uploading.)    These are the extras - the only treat I absolutely have to have at Halloween - candy corn!  And a kit to make a Putz style house - a real favorite of mine.  Can't decide whether to make Christmas or Halloween style!  Next, a cauldron - this will go with my apothecary stuff for sure!
And look at this!  Really, really love it.  You can sure tell that my partner knows her way around a sewing machine.  And her fabric selection is like she was looking with my eyes :-)
And, this morning's gift - a candle that I have already starting burning.  My house smells pumpkiny yummy.  This is an October must have for me - a candle smelling of pumpkin.  Since we were gone and then I was a little sick I haven't had time to find one this year - so happy this was in the package!
I've been walking by him all day saying "nevermore".  I crack myself up ;-). Isn't he cute?!  
My partner did an amazing job of stalking - she really got into my head! These are SO me.  They are tiny - 1.5" or so.
 
I even love the box they come in.  Box full of adorable.

I sew just enough to know how incredibly skilled my partner is.  I cannot believe how much she got done and how gorgeous it is.  Here is my 13th and most amazing item.

And in action (grandma's bowl & candlesticks on top).

Post by: gala_apples on September 24, 2016 08:37:08 PM
Day One:
ChameleonHound started off this year with a freakin' bang! A Pin Cushion Queen art doll!!! It's so cool because I don't think I even mentioned Burton's poetry on my signup, but I have the book and three figurines!


Day Two:
A zombie colouring book! This makes my papercrafting stuff so happy, I have so many project ideas already.

Sample page (there are like 50 pages)


Day Three:
A light up necklace and some notecards, very nice!


Day Four:
Another cool art doll. In case the scale doesn't appear clear, it's at least a foot long.


Day Five:
the inchies are cute, but I cannot wait to craft with the printed pages!



Day Six:
I cannot f***ng believe ChamelonHound got me zombie Fluxx. Me and my friend LOVE fluxx, she has the original, the Cuthulu edition and the Adventure Time edition. It's so badass to have it in my favourite theme.


Day Seven:
A great skully apron for my girlfriend and I to wear (anatomical hearts are our love symbol)



Day Eight:
It makes me grin that Chameleon and I both made Beetlejuice stuff for each other. (I know the picture is a bit blurry, the pin is of a full moon)


Day Nine:
I'm not sure if I'll share the stickers with my kids at work, but the notecards are all mine.


Day Ten:
I have so many versions of rainshower necklaces on my pinterest, and now I FINALLY own one!


Day Eleven:
Nightmare Before Christmas ATCs


Day Twelve:
Five Nights At Freddy's tshirt for my girlfriend


Day Thirteen:
Another amazing Melancholy Deaths item, a canvas bag with Roy the Toxic Boy and Staring Girl painted on it. So freakin' detailed and amazing.

This is me!

My lovely, lovely package of Halloween goodies!!  My partner is RockingBearBranch!



Day 1!  

I opened the absolute CUTEST reversible half-apron today!  It's absolutely perfect!  And in a funny twist, I just signed up for Blue Apron, so I've been cooking more - so this is great timing!



I think the retro dots is my favorite side, but both are great.  And POCKETS!  Woo-hoo!

Day 2!

The cutest little ornament kit!  I almost opened it immediately, but I'm going to wait until I hang out with one of my nieces in a few weeks.  I haven't played with these in forever, but I have such fond memories of them!  So, I'm looking forward to playing with this one.



Day 3!

Cute little wee notebook that's already at home in my purse and the snazziest, coolest little basket!  Really cool woven paper.  I don't think I did it justice in the photo.  It's really fun!



Day 4!

Delicious, delicious lollipops!  So yummy!



Day 5

This gorgeous, gorgeous ornament with an embroidered witch and her cauldron.  It's absolutely fantastic.



Day 6

Super fun Dracula Pez dispenser!



Day 7

Fantastic distressed can with a vintage Pez advertisement!  So very cool.




Day 8

RockingBearBranch made me this gorgeous cone with a black flower.  It's really beautiful.



Day 9

Super fun Halloween stickers and cupcake picks!  I love these!



Day 10

Cutest little pumpkin pom-pom ornament.  It's so soft and plush!  Felt leaves and pipe cleaner stems.  Really gorgeous.  Currently taken up residence on the wall behind my desk at work.  It makes me smile every time I see it.  :)



Day 11

Cute little felt witch kit!  Another fun activity with one of my nieces!



Day 12

Lovely little set of ceramic pumpkins.  Glazed beautifully.  They're really very lovely.



Day 13

I cannot believe it's over already!!  Today, I received the loveliest macrame owl.  He'll have a spot on the wall behind my desk very soon!

Such cuteness already.  The birdhouse, the purse (that fabric!), the cat cross stitch, that little room (!), all the great jewelry, etc!

Post by: JoyfulClover on October 03, 2016 05:32:38 PM
Little Squid and Sweet Gimli are pretty much the best creatures on here. I feel as if they need to be featured with each item. Jes sayin.

The trick or treater with the doll wand and sack cloth is FREAKIN CREEPY. Soooo, good job, there!

The scent diffuser is pretty swanky, and the wax labels are uber clever.

I covet the individual cards and crow bookmark. Really well done.

And I need whole yards of the fabric used in the bunting. I really appreciate the fussy cutting for the individual cameos!

Happy Halloween y'all!

I think I want one of everything please!

Hey calixita! I'll let Sederick's give details about his mod.  He feels like a little vinyl doll of some kind, with sculpty appendages. The paint is textured - he feels very cool. Bumpy, but not abrasive.

Whistley - Asssssssssssss yooooouuuuuuu wiiiiiiissssshhhhhhhh!

What an adorable gargoyle!!  What's it made of?
I love that spooky trick or treater!
He is in fact a paint yourself vinyl vampire. I went to Value Village specifically to find something to mod into a gargoyle. He had wings so he won out. I used an exactl and carved off some details, primed him and hit him with fleckstone after crafting his extra appendages from sculpy. I made the mistake of trusting hot glue ad noe of his appendages stayed on *L* gargoyles ay?

Yes! I thought so, but didn't want to be wrong again! I love his little bare feet, chillin in a lounge chair. Jack Links Jerky commercials always crack me up! Yay for Bigfoot!

Heatgun. Then water. Got it. I have some ideas I want to try with all the spare skellies.

And I'm so happy I didn't number. It's exciting to see what you might open!


Edit for pet shout-out! Reappearance of Gimli and the lovely Ginger! Woot for all the pets!

So much amazing stuff... I want to comment on it all, but I don't know if I should wait and just do it all at once... I just keep going through to see if people have added new things!  So many ideas... I think "why didn't I think of that?!"  I'm definitely going to be doing some pinning...

I finally got someone to tell me what I was doing wrong about uploading my photos.  I'm so inept at computers!  But some of the photos are still sideways!  What's up with that?

If you take pics with your phone, make sure you take it horizontal, not vertical. For some reason, if you take the pic vertical it makes it all wonky.  :)

Soooooooooo, it's seems like now we're getting into the heart of the swap. because I started a post to squee over the new posted gifts and realized it was turning into an epistle.  Seriously, it was paragraphs long.  Straight gush-fest.  So I deleted it.

I second kittykill.  I hope many of these things get their own postings to answer age-old questions.  Since the dawn of time they came (Highlander)...

Like, how were the shoes made? What was the Halloween Cat made out of, and can I steal him? (KIDDING)  Is 28 Days, painted or decoupaged?  How was the zombieland bracelet wound (over and around the black icord)?  What is the crow necklace made out of?  Were all the labels hand cut or punched?  WHAT MOVIE IS SHE TALKING ABOUT WHERE THEY ARE BURIED ALIVE???  How do you heat up a pearler on a horizontal AND vertical plane?  How did she get the fine detail on the glass etchings? (used a toothpick??)  What was the dome made out of, and how is it affixed?  What kind of fabric IS that banner made of (Michael Miller)? Why have I never heard of Fluxx, and do I need to get this?  Are you kidding me with the saddle bags?  *whew* [exhale]


You know.  Just a few things.

I finally got someone to tell me what I was doing wrong about uploading my photos.  I'm so inept at computers!  But some of the photos are still sideways!  What's up with that?

If you take pics with your phone, make sure you take it horizontal, not vertical. For some reason, if you take the pic vertical it makes it all wonky.  :)

Even if I rotate it before loading onto this site?!  Sigh!  Thanks, though.

Sometimes, if I've rotated before loading, it flips it back to the meta position.

After loading, select the contrary photo. At the bottom of the page, under admin options is edit photo.

New page - then under the thumbnail, you can rotate clockwise or counter, as well as flip.

Then you save. And you're good.

If you mean the Ouija board ones I made for aisy, I started a topic for them here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=450387.0

(I also posted about the cute spider web shirt here because I thought it was such a fun idea: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=450388.0 )

YES! I WAS! Then I rocked them both, cuz they were FABULOSO.

The shoes were a risk...and you scored big with them.

So that package MissingWillow sent went to the wrong house!!

Ha! I picked it up in person. No postal carrier mix up there! Missing Willow is a great swap partner. ::nod nod::

So many awesome things so far, and I'm only on page 3. I adore the vintage-style pumpkin statue and black cat. And so much more!

Guys, since you were wondering, the shot glasses are engraved, not etched. Would have been a pain in the ... for the details otherwise. Just a dremel and an engraving bit.

So basically, you raised the coolness level by 1000x. Cuz that's pretty stinkin neat, Glamis.

I think this must be the best mini 13 days of Halloween gallery ever!  I love so many things... the zombie socks, the buntings, the fabric pumpkins, the mini candy corn under glass, the UFO/cow frame cracks me up.  There are some great ornaments and that cubby shrine and skeleton specimens are amazing and I love all the Ouija items.  Great job everyone!

How was the little pottery mini shine accomplished?

I have seen many shrines, but never one in glazed clay. It really imbues it with aged heft. And the glaze is so beautiful, it boarders on ridiculous. I'm really hoping to find out you don't need a kiln for this (but based on the post context you probably did.)


Title: Re: Mini 13 Days of Halloween Rnd 8 Gallery
Post by: MissingWillow on October 09, 2016 07:26:09 AM
Thanks so much, JoyfulClover.   :-* It is a handbuilt pottery piece, so yep it did require a kiln.  I agree that the glaze is beautiful, it's one my husband made and we use it often.  Here's a photo I took before sending it off that shows the depth of the color.  The skull was glazed separately and attached after firing.

Holy Crap, I've been waiting to open all my days b/c I thought we needed to time them to open the last day on Halloween.  Rubbish!  Now I"m going to open 8 more days of stuff today!  (First day was cookies, which I took a picture of and then devoured).  I'll begin posting in my gallery.  So excited right now that I don't have to wait longer.

Whistley, I pinned your Halloween tree of life, I love it!

Sederick, your off-season Halloween creatures make me laugh, especially the mummy with a fast food job.

I love the TNBC peg people, Sally is so detailed!

Killam Creative, I hadn't heard of ATBs - if yours is any indication of what they're like, I love them!  Also, I think we're secret stash sisters - your hoard of Halloween papers & goodies looks very familiar ;-)

Some of my photos are still going wonky!  There doesn't seem to have a correlation with horizontal or vertical.  I think my phone hates me.

Do it!! I just hung my bad boy up tonight. The risers and layering one between the glass and the mat really make it stellar.


MissingWillow - the small bunny and the moon caught me mid scroll. I had a beautiful bunny named Luna (she was soft, heathered gray, so we named her 'moon'), and this piece really spoke to me. It's just the right amount of everything with truly lovely colors and composition. The ears are so delicate and the moon perfectly textured. I love you made this.

So many thanks to our amazing organizer!  I'm sure that this one is crazy swap to keep track of, so many items and people and packages to track.  And boy did she do a great job matching me and my partner!

And to my awesome partner, FiberAlchemist.  She is the BEST stalker - that gal got into my head!  And she has mad skills.  How lucky am I?  Oh, and she was so much fun to craft for too! 

What a great swap - I loved it so much!

Haven't checked in here in a bit.  My upstairs neighbor passed away unfortunately and I've been a little busy trying to make myself useful and helping her daughter where I can.  

As usual, this Halloween swap has been amazing!!  So many wonderful inspiring images in the gallery!  I must get my "pin" finger ready to spend lots of time on Pinterest!

Thank you so much to my wonderful partner, KittyKill!!!  I'm loving all my goodies from my creepy plague doctor pillow to my decorated mantle to my disembodied yet welcoming hand which is now properly installed on the wall in my entry way to the pretty necklace I'm wearing to work today to my wonderful smelling kitchen thanks to my new scent diffuser!  
Forgot to point out that I didn't come up with the beading design for the Frankenstein cuff.  Gozer very kindly gave me the pattern after she decided it was too complex for her.  I must admit that I also had difficulty with it at points and it didn't help that I had to use different shades than the pattern called for but i do hope you like it, KittyKill!

And thank you to our organizer for making the swap happen!!

Happy Halloween, everyone!!!

So, I definitely forgot to take pics of all the stuff I made, because I got SUPER stressed at the end. But I did take a pic of the last day item because I was super proud of it. This is before I did a last round of detailing.

Since halblingefrau didn't post, I thought I would.

I knew if I waited long enough, I would find the perfect frame to use for the mini masterpieces Sederick drew:



Frame was low, low price ($3.25). I covered the original print in star fabric, and eyeballed placement of the art cards. I love how it turned out, and may take it into work, but for now I'm loving it at home.

Thanks, Sederick!
