Details of swap:
Do you love Halloween? Do you think about Halloween throughout the year, not just in October?  Do you love opening presents?  If you answered yes to any of those questions then this may be the swap for you! This swap is a Mini 13 days of Halloween swap. Instead of opening all your presents at once like in other swaps, we count down the days to Halloween starting with 10/18. You will open day 13 on October the 18th, day 12 on October the 19th and so on until 10/30.  (This is a flexible time schedule however.  Please communicate with your partner.  If you or they need to adhere to a different schedule, that is, of course, okay as long as you’ve both worked it out beforehand.)
 
Requirements:
-You must post in this thread before signing up
-A minimum of 13 items, one for each day.
-At least 6 crafted items must be sent, equal to 5 small (Under $10 or under two hours to craft) and 1 medium (Medium = 2 or more hours to craft or $10-$30 dollars)
-Spoiling is okay but do not expect the same in return. If you would like to spoil, please discuss it with your partner!
-You must post in the thread at least once a week (or communicate reason you cannot)
-You must PM both your partner and organizer when you send and receive
-You must post photos in the gallery and if you can’t please ask your partner to do so.  We all want to oooh and aaah over the goodies!

Some things to think about:
*THIS SWAP IS LARGE! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE THINK CAREFULLY ON JOINING AND IF YOU DOUBT YOU CAN DO IT PLEASE DON’T JOIN.  WE WANT THIS SWAP TO BE TOTALLY FLAKE FREE!!!!

* I STRONGLY recommend that you have a Pinterest board for this swap, as it helps out your partner greatly. Please keep this updated and have at least 20 items on it. If you do not have a Pinterest board, please have another way to show items to your partner that you like (Etsy favorites, flickr, etc...)

*If you are sending BAKED GOODS, please only send them if you live in the same country as your partner. We do not need to tempt customs people to keep your package after you have worked so hard on it! Also, if you are sending baked goods you should make this the package that is opened on day 1!

*I highly recommend that you wrap your items in a plastic bag/trash bag/ or some other protective wrapping INSIDE the box you are sending. Things can get wet from rain and/or snow OR things can melt in hot temperatures.

Yay!  So happy to see interest in this swap!  It's always my favorite!  I'm going to start getting names up and so on this evening.

MissingWillow brought up that the name of this swap might be confusing.  There did used to be a swap with this name that had different criteria, i.e. 13 items for Day 13, 12 items for Day 12, etc...  In comparison, this swap is much smaller.  But I've always thought that the word "mini" doesn't really fit this swap either.  Having to send 13 items is hardly mini (nor are minature items required).  Since the other swap hasn't taken place in five years, I chose to leave the word out so as not to confuse newer Craftster swappers.  Unfortunately, I may have confused more longterm swappers!  Hopefully, once everyone reads the posting, it becomes a little clearer but I'm sorry for any misconceptions!!!!!

Post by: KarenLouiseM on July 23, 2017 05:49:55 PM
Ohhhh, I wondered why it was called "mini" when I did it last year.  Now I get it!  And count me in - I'll do the questionnaire when I'm not using the iPad.

I totally want to sign up for this!!! Just so I'm understanding correctly, I can send all of my items at once in one package (wrapped individually of course) and my partner would open one a day, correct? Or am I sending 13 packages? So excited!  ;D

You can send everything at once (unless it's somehow cheaper or easier to send separately).  The important thing is that your partner receives before the proper day for opening.   :)

I totally know what you mean! I found myself going through EVERYONE'S Pinterest and had to make myself chill out lol.
It's the end of July and am allowing myself to get totally excited for Halloween!

Also, calixita, Drac is fab as always!

Ooh! My 4-year-old & I have been doing advent-style pre-Hallowe'en decorating the last few years.  This sounds great!  :) 

I'll be offline from July 29-August 12, tho-- is that likely to be a problem?

We'd love to have you join in!  My concern is that ideally, it would be good to acknowledge your partner before going offline for 2+ weeks.  If I were to be a busy bee and get everyone partnered and notified by say, 8pm on Friday, Aug. 28th, would you be able to check in with both me and your partner before saying farewell to the internet for such a long time?  Do you think you'd have time to still brainstorm and possibly start crafting during this down time or if not, would the remaining eight weeks still be enough time for you to craft for this swap?  This swap is a big commitment so think it over.  We want it to be fun and hopefully stress-free!!!

I can try! (& if not, I can probably manage to check in on my phone on Saturday, since it's a long drive to vacation...)  I'll be at pennsic, which is full of potential shopping & inspiration opportunities, so I'm not too worried about getting horribly behind.  :)  Filling out my questionnaire now!

Great!  Send in your questionnaire!  This is going to be a great group!

I had to look up pennsic but wow! that looks like fun!  Have you gone before?  Does all that medieval gear get too hot in August weather?  Do the victors get a feast of mead and ale and legs of mutton?  I'll bet the people watching is amazing!  You'll have to share a picture or two with us.

We've done pennsic before, but this is the first time either my husband or 4-year-old has been for the whole time, so that'll be exciting.  I am totally ready except for the packing & the last 2 things I want to finish on the sewing machine....

Ok, I've put up the list of partners and sent our emails.  Please let me know if I've screwed something up - like sent you your own questionnaire or messed up an allergy situation!  I'm heading out for some outdoor movie viewing soon but will try to fix any mistakes I've made ASAP.  Meanwhile, happy stalking, everyone!!!

I've created a gallery so that people can stake their spots to display the goodies they will receive.  Please go save your place now.   :)  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452850.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452850.0)

This is a long crafting period but please do your best to check in here roughly once a week (or let us know if you're unable to).  I'll try to have some Halloween questions and topics to keep us amused.  For starters, is there anything that you do to get yourself in the mood to start crafting for Halloween out of season?  Watch scary or spooky movies?  Listen to eerie music?  Summon the spirit of H.P. Lovecraft?

I have no problem crafting for Halloween out of season. I'm super motivated this year because we're going to Disneyland at the beginning of their Halloween season which starts in September. I just bought a ton of Halloween fabric today to make drawstring backpacks for my kids for the trick or treat event we're attending - and picked up some for this swap too. :)

I also keep Grim Grinning Ghosts in my playlist when I run, just because.  :D

I'm pretty sure I'll be making doubles of the things I make for my partner too. :)

I usually make a Halloween craft about every 2 months all year long!  Zombie movies get me in the mood for the season, too.

Right about this time of year (hot as all heck outside) is when I begin to yearn for the cool Autumn nights and Halloween. I love to read poems about fall and watch any of the classic Mickey Halloween films, the Addams Family movies, Hocus Pocus, you name it!
I'm particularly excites to see the new It movie! It scared the bejeezus out of me when I was a kid and I'm wondering the remake will hold up.

I couldn't wait for Halloween this year, so back in May my BF and I went to the East Coast (we're from So. Cal) and did our own little "spooky tour." We went to Salem, MA, Providence, RI to see H.P. Lovecraft's headstone, Sleepy Hollow, NY.. it was lots of fun, even off season. When I signed up for the swap I watched some Halloween movies to get in a crafty Halloween mood, and went to our local craft supply store, but they don't have much out yet.

So sad that I will not get to start crafting until this weekend but I am on a hard work schedule of 11 hours a day this week.  I did manage to get a list started and attempted to find something I packed away last year that may work for my partner.  Looks like a trip up in the attic is also needed this coming weekend.  I can never wait to get started and buy plenty of left overs at discounted prices at the end of the seasons heavens know I probably have 4 large totes boxes of Halloween in the attic.

I love this swap. Each and everything I make I make two of. One for me. LOL

I made my list of the 13 things Im making and the the extras. :D So SO SOO excited.

Tomorrow I scheduled myself to make a grocery list of what all is needed in the making. I will have alot of it in stash but I like to get it all in one big bag so I can pull it out and submerse myself in Halloweeny craft supplies at any moment. Just a big nest of awesomeness.

I bought my first halloween decorations this weekend! Two skeletons from Michaels and they are meditating. LOL I had have them. I just HAD to have them.

I picked up some things yesterday for what I think is going to be a large. It always seems to grow, though, lol. I'm really excited about this as it is something Whistley and I both really like so I am hoping to make a double for our house also. I think the prototype may be ours and then send the "final draft" to her. So exciting! I have a list of 9 definites that just HAVE to be made and I'm still pondering the other four.

I'm making lists of ideas and needed supplies and I started playing around with a little idea that may or may not work out.  It's fun to experiment, isn't it?

Spooky question:  What happens if a vampire bites a zombie?  Does the vampire turn into a zombie?  Does the zombie start craving blood?  or would the vampire die because zombies aren't alive anymore?  I was discussing this with co-workers and everyone had a different take on the situation.

I finished a small.  Woo-hoo!  I'm hoping to get to one or two more this weekend.  I have one large planned and ordered supplies.  I don't have a concrete list, but I figured I'd just let my inspiration see where it takes me and reassess as we get closer to the shipping date.

I started my first project last night hoping to get it finished today.  The start was very messy but happy with the results.  Have yet to drag out supplies from the attic found this on a trip to Michaels on my lunch break last week may just need to go buy one for me. Also picked up something to use for ________.  When digging in my craft room I found a pattern that is about 22 years old and figured now was the time to use it.

Calixita, I think the vampire dies, it's basically just been poisoned.

I'm in the process of trying to figure out if buying a tool that's expensive but will make the job easier is worth it, or if I should make myself multiple more steps to save 20 bucks. Usually I'm pretty thrifty, but I would use the tool multiple times, so....

I've got supplies and a list done. Can't wait to get started :) I ordered a boat load of supplies earlier this year in preparation for one of the things I'm making. Hopefully I'll have enough to finish! It's hard to be mindful about not going over board on the size :P

I have a pretty solid plan at this point, I haven't started anything yet but I will this week!

Also I agree, the vampire would be poisoned by the zombie blood.

This is my craft space also. lol!!

I started the large and then realized part of the thing wasn't going to fit (1/4" too small). Luckily, the thing isn't expensive so I will pop over on Wednesday and get the next size up. Once I started this project, I immediately realized I should also do something else with similar materials that would just be a-freaking-mazing!! So that will be another large lol.

I've started on what I am going to call a large medium and ran out of supplies, of which I will also be getting on Wednesday. So, I am currently working on a pair of things that I am calling a small lol.

I am ridiculously excited for Halloween.

I too, think the Vampire would die. Again. For good. Could the zombie be a zom-vamp?!

I've managed to finish a small but as usual, I have 3 other projects in various stages of progress.  My brain can't seem to focus on one thing at a time for very long.  I must always have several craft balls in the air at once!

I'm glad several of you agree that the vampire would die if it bit a zombie.  I didn't think zombies had blood to suck anyway!  But according to my co-workers, I haven't watched enough zombie movies.  But if the zombie then turned around and ate the vampire's brain (and ingesting vampire blood), does the zombie take on vampire characteristics?  Sunlight can kill it but it can turn into a bat?

I had a moment of panic the other night when I found a project taking a bad turn.  Have you ever taken a fresh look at something and suddenly realized that it was becoming something bad (and by bad, I mean kinda racist!!!!   :o :-\ :-[).  Luckily, one of my student workers helped lead me back in the right direction and I think I saved it!  Phew!

Back from vacation!

I have no commentary on the vampire vs zombie dilemma, but I did go to a class on historical ways of burying people so they wouldn't come back out of their graves.  (Sadly, I don't have pictures of the author's fabulous little dioramas with clay and craft store skeletons, but if you want to read about it the handout is here: https://lucetadicosimo.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/dead-men-walking-handout.pdf )

I think I would stay there if I had another (or more!) person with me. I'd be scared out of my mind but how many times could you say you'd done it? :)

I picked up a much needed supply at the craft store so I can make more progress on this large. It's looking quite fabulous! Many times I have an idea that just doesn't translate well to an actual piece so I end up having to scrap but I'm so glad that this is going to plan!

In crafting news, I'm finally finishing up with my summer semester class and had some time to craft this week.

I played in my younger years and also have one as I collect vintage board games prior to UPC codes.

I got to craft last night and made some progress.  Started and completed 5 things.  4 of them are the same but different may just make a few more of these and send them as a day or use them in a different way have yet to decide.  I also have been brain storming about another project and have it laid out on the kitchen table to start today.  Feeling good about my progress.

I think we played with a Ouija board in high school or college?  A sleepover, I think.  Too far back in my memory banks.  It clearly didn't leave much of an impression.  ;D

I am checking in!  I've been a slacker!  I haven't made much more progress, but I do have a couple things in the works, so I'm not freaked out yet.  I will be at some stage, I'm quite sure.  ;D

I have a medium/large done and a small/medium day done. I still have one large in progress. I think I'm going to pause on that for today and get 2 smalls done to make me feel better about progress lol

Got sent home today from work at noon due to Hurricane Harvey.  Looks like we are in the forecast for up to 30 inches of rain.  Bought water, bread lunch meat and chips to stay holed up for at least a week.  They have yet to call school which starts on Monday...but a good chance that will happen later tonight or tomorrow.  Hoping this massive storm does not stall like they are predicting.  I am about 30 minutes from Galveston. Ready to craft if I do not lose power.  I have completed 5 projects so far and have 9 more of something close to being through.....decided to make some of these for me also so I have been working on them a little each night this past week.  Hope to get them all finished tonight so I can move onto another project.  I will try to post from my phone if power is lost.

I've finished a set of tiny things to add to the stack of supplies/non-crafted fun stuff, and got the supplies for a large thing only to find out that while I did finally find the thing I wanted in orange (tho not black) it's not the best material.  I think it'll be ok, but not as nice as I was hoping. (Phoey-- I feel like this is something that used to be really easy to come by and just doesn't exist anymore.)

Good luck to Quaggy & anyone else who's in the hurricane-affected area.

My heart goes out to my neighbors and fellow Texans!  I am dry rain has finally ended with 51 inches being dumped in my town.  So many here lost everything.

I have made progress. Finished up everything I had started.  Made 2 large items. 4 of something else and have started 2 more things.

Mail service trash pick up etc has not ran since this past Friday......

Sunshine today!

Now that I'm back on line, I'm so sorry to hear about all the trouble that Hurricane Harvey has created!  I'm glad to hear that our Texan crafters here are well.  My heart goes out to all those affected!

And today my entire plan is thrown off. I was sure my 13 days were cemented, but today I went to Michaels and saw something I regretted not buying last year. CLEARLY I had to use my second chance. But that means I have to rearrange everything to fit in the new item. *sigh*

I must apologize for not being on here much lately!  I'm still getting over my cold and the semester has started at the University I work at so it's busy too.  I'm still slowly crafting away and making my list of supplies that still need to be obtained.

There seems to be so much happening around the country (and the world!), nature-wise.  Hurricanes, tropical storms, wildfires, not to mention the vital recovery efforts!  I hope all are staying safe and productive! 

For some diversion, a long overdue Halloween question:  Imagine that you are in a horror movie.  Are you the first to die, the comic relief, the skeptic, the scientist, the only survivor,...?  Feel free to ask your friends and family what they think your role would be.  You might be surprised.

I'm finally done with all the unexpected obligations/trips that got in the way of my crafting.  Finished the other swap ai was in and now all my free time will be dedicated to this swap.  Fun!!

I would never ever get myself in a position to be on an island like that.  ;D  But, if forced, I'd probably be the scientist?  I'm always going to vote myself off the island at the first possible moment.  ;D

I'm at work at the moment, but planning at least one project this afternoon with a couple others in the works!

I'm nearly half way finished with 3 smalls. I hope to have 2 finished tomorrow but the third may turn into a medium lol.

I'd like to say I'm the survivor because I'm an excellent shot and good at leading. But aren't those people (who say that) always the ones who die? Lol

Me I am the only survivor. Nothing else seen to make sense to me.  I have been making great progress the hurricane helped I may have surpassed 13 crafted items but still have a few more to complete.  We finally get to start school tomorrow and have been working 10 to 14 hours per day since last Sunday.  I am salary but they are going to give me time off for the hours I worked so I will get a break at some point.  I am really hoping that I can finish up this next weekend and get everything wrapped and packed to send.

Hit a snag with my medium this weekend, I thought we had an essential part of it but its no where to be found. I have more of it coming in the mail now. Also trying a new craft today, it should be easy but wish me luck!

I'd like to think I'd be the scientist or something close, but I'd probably die pretty quick...

I'm enjoying everyone's roles in the horror movie!  I'm glad we have some scientists and survivors.  The world needs those.  I'm pretty sure I'd be the first to die.  I can be very unobservant at times so the killer or monster would have ample opportunities to lurk behind me waiting to pounce!   :D

My finished pile is growing so progress is being made!  Yay!

A bit late for the question, but I'd be a Making A Last Stand character. I think I'd be ruthless trying to fight back, but I'm terrible at running/athletics. So I'd fortify some room, get a few good swings in, then die.

Spooky question:  Which urban legend scares you the most? 
Bloody Mary?, the killer with a hook for a hand?, ....
Boston has a ghost called the Lady in Black who haunts an old fort in Boston Harbor.  I once had a creepy experience while exploring a nearly pitch black corner of the place.  I swore I felt something brush against me and told my friend to quit goofing around.  She then replied "what are you talking about?" from the opposite direction of where I assumed she was.  I beat a hasty retreat and had a good laugh about it later but still....


Title: Re:
Post by: Audania1 on September 19, 2017 01:41:39 PM
Hmm. I guess I don't know many urban legends off the top of my head. The first one that comes to mind is the two teens out at lovers point and they hear a scratching at the car door. Then when they leave there's a bloody hook stuck in the bumper.

The scariest urban legend is the one where Diet Coke is killing me.  Aargh, that would be the worst!  (I don't like coffee - I need that first caffeine of the day ;-).

Finished something yesterday.  I still have more to do than I'd like; but, had to take a cleaning break, as I had no work surface left and coukdn't find anything!

The only time I've gotten spiders in my hair was from walking through their webs by mistake, and they usually see you coming & get well out of the way before that happens.  (Speaking as a naturalist/former survey archaeologist) Ticks, though... ugh.

I unwisely read one of those Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark collections when I was too young for it and spent ages being terrified by just about all the urban legends in a vague sort of way.

I finally got 2 smalls done tonight. I need a certain item to get started on something. I am going to test it out though. If it flops, I will keep it but if it's as amazing as I hope then I will definitely send it. It's one of those brain child ideas where you think if you look up you can see the light bulb on over your head lol. I hope it works - fingers crossed!

And I totally remember reading those Scarey Stories books! And now that you mention it, the scariest one to me was the scarecrow one that dried human skins on a roof..... then wore them!

I agree with Thimbles , Alfred Hitchcock Presents had some freaky stories. The one that messed me up the most was one that I can't remember the whole story to, I think it has to do with the owner of a soap company being cheated on? Anyway, the scary part was she dissolves her ex in a vat of lye and turns him into soap so she doesn't get caught, but then they have this gory zoom in on a customer using the soap, and realising too late that the bar is made out of lye and all their skin starting to fall off! I watched it when I was a kid, and it put me off bar soap for at least a few years!

So glad I didnt read this thread during an insomnia night of crafting. You creepy people, you! I love it!

Premature burial, for sure! That would just be the worst realization ever.

I am on my way to a very very fun morning to search for a few very fun things for my partner. Wish me luck in my hunting.

I am about done crafting. Unless something comes to mind to replace a bought item. Or if I look at pinterest. I know if I do Ill find something my partner and I both need one of.

I'm done!  I also have 12 of 13 days wrapped.  PerfectlyBohemian and I are going to meet in person next weekend to do an in-person exchange (so excited!). We're going to both open starting October 1st due to vacation plans later in the month.

Still plugging along.  Nearly done with a large.  And headed out to the craft store for working on a small.  That's tomorrow's project.

I'm back! I had some time on our trip to do some crafting while driving to and from Disneyland. I finished an item for this swap that I hope my partner will love. I have a bunch of supplies organized into baskets just waiting to be made into fun stuff for this swap sitting on my craft room table. Tomorrow the kids are back to school and I'm going to get back to crafting!

Which urban legend scares you the most? 

I think all of the ghost hitchhiker stories spook me the most.

I think the urban legend that scares me the most is the one about the man and his wife who's car breaks down. The man goes to get help and doesn't come back and pretty soon the woman heard scraping on the roof of the car. She is too scared to do anything and pretty soon the police pull up with their guns drawn and get her out of the car. When she looks back her husband is hanging from a tree limb and his feet were scraping the car roof.

Anyways, I think that it how it ends. There are several variations of that story.

Finished one larger thing this morning; close to finishing another... but there's also a category of stuff I have planned but haven't actually dived into yet, since it means making space in my craft room to work. (*cough*)

International send outs next Weds.!!!! 

I'm real close.  Just need to do some finishing details.  One of these details is turning into a pain in my patootie!!!  But I'll get it or die trying!   ;D  Good luck to all who are in similar positions!  (Sorry to hear about the melting incident, PerfectlyBohemian)

spooky question:  Have you or would you ever visit a graveyard at night?  Personally, I adore graveyards and cemeteries but they do take on a different atmosphere at night.

I have visited one at night and when we were looking for this place we almost purchased a log cabin with an old family plot in the back yard.  It's pretty common around here.

Some friends & I went out to walk in the cemetery after dark once in college, but I mainly remember being told not to go barefoot in the golf course next door as some couple someone else knew had once gotten horrible chemical allergies from rolling around in the soft-but-pesticided grass without enough clothes on.  So I guess nothing noteworthy happened at the cemetery, since I utterly fail to remember that part.

I'd visit a cemetery at night, but I've never thought of them as spooky, just as sad.

I'm hoping to finish up the last projects this weekend (as I need to send out Wednesday) but depending on how the one goes there may be some last minute changes...

Luckily everything worked out after my mishap(s). Today MW and I met for brunch to swap in person! Sooo - sent and received? A picture of my pile will be uploaded soon :)

I once went into a cemetery at night but not to see the cemetery. My husband and I were camping and the man at the booth when we came into the campground tipped us off about a trail that led to a very old cemetery and that if we went up there that night, we'd be treated to a beautiful show by the synchronized fireflies. He was not wrong! It was amazing. I do wish I could have seen the cemetery in the day time, too, but we hit the road the next morning for a day of hiking and another campground.

I really hope that trend continues haha. As it is, I've gotten all of the big and medium things out of the way and am just working on a few smalls. Let me say, one of the smalls that I am working on now smells AMAZING!!! lol Definitely making another of that one haha.

I received my package. My postman thought it would be great to leave both boxes in the rain and let the boxes get soaked instead of knocking on my door. Most of the goodies survived but I did have to unwrap about 3 to dry them out because they were waterlogged. Some elements of day 13 were ruined but for the most part everything is still usable. I will still go ahead with the unwrapping on our planned days - I will include a footnote if something I open is something I had to rescue.

ok I pounded booty on this swap yesterday! It's so discouraging when you have lots of little projects around that various things needed one thing or another and they sit around for days waiting for others pieces to finish it up. But then, when you have them all lined up and you just, boom! Boom! Boom!! I finished up 4 things completely unrelated to each other in just a few hours.
Today I will be starting and finishing 3 things and making all the labels. Tomorrow I will be wrapping up the last two things and then literally wrap everything and tag them. I'm pretty sure it's going to take 2 to 3 boxes. It's definitely going to be at least 2 boxes though.
I'm just so excited to see everything come to fruition! And I've definitely had to snatch a few things out of various hands to put back in the "out" box...

Lol don't be nervous. One thing is just big and I have to send it separate so it doesn't squash everything else.

And we are decorating today! Yay!

I sent this morning after doing that thing where I felt like I made barely anything only to realize that's just because I only made about a quarter of the things on my brainstorming list.  (you would think I'd know I do this by now...)  And then came home to a seriously giant box on my porch from KarenLouiseM.  My child has been hovering over the packages asking me periodically if we can open them yet.  :)

So I had my boxes all ready to go to the post office today after work and I pulled up and it was closed due to all the fires in the area. 3 if the employees had to evacuate their homes even. Tomorrow I will drive down the hill a bit and go to the post office the next town over and send in the morning.
My family and I are safe - our nearest fire is 30 min north of my house but there is so much smoke that it's a little scary.
If you guys are praying or sending positive thoughts the people in Sonoma and Napa could really use it. It's terrifying to see the updates showing several hundred thousand acres burned and only 3% contained... &#128559;

I didn't realize you were so close to the fires, Audania!!!!!  Please stay safe!  The pictures of the devastation have been horrible!  I don't know how many more such horrifying sights from hurricanes, earthquakes and fires that I can take.  Halloween goodies are more in line with the type of "horrifying" images I want to see.

Thank you guys so much! We are actually further north than the Napa fires but we are in Nevada county and there are a few Grass Valley (just north) and Yuba county (next door) fires. I swear, it's like biblical end times! I know we are gonna be ok but I just really feel for the folks who have lost everything. I know red cross and organizations like world vision (and many many churches) are taking donations for aid for families who have lost it all. It's extremely humbling.

My child keeps eyeing the GIANT STACK OF PRESENTS.  I had to write on the calendar when we get to open them so I could show her (again, and again...)

Ha ha, mine too! I like the calendar idea. I'm going to do that too. :)

It makes me happy to know a few of the things are for her!

While we all either hold our breath waiting for packages to arrive (I'm still waiting for the box I sent to land safely in New Zealand!!!) or trying to distract ourselves from the pile of gifts waiting, how about another Halloween question:
You've been invited to the costume party of the year and money is no object (you've won the lottery or you've got a rich sugar Daddy - whatever floats your boat.   ;D ).  What costume do you wear?

This was the first thing that came to mind and I actually love it.

I would go as Alice (from Alice in Wonderland) but not just Alice, Alice in the moment she grows big inside the house and is basically wearing the house. But here is the kicker, it's not the cottage from the movie, but a super detailed version of the house from Pixar's Up; balloons and all, with Kevin (the bird) on the roof.

My costume wish right now is for Princess Sneezewort from the Princess in Black books, only instead of just purple high-tops, I want purple twinkle toes in a women's 8.  I'm making my kid a Princess Magnolia costume, and that is *so much easier* to do.  *sigh*

Also for those who are waiting anxiously for packages or opening, I've just been drooling over this site that has all the hallowe'en printable toys one could wish for:  http://ravensblight.com/papertoys.html  (see the "halloween treats" tab at the top of the page, too.)  Crafty internet goths are the best. :)

I would totally do some form of Snow White. Maybe steam punk or Victorian.

I would go all out and wear a fancy Victorian ballgown.

I'd love to dress up as one of the party attendees to the ball in the Labyrinth.  Fancy ball gown and awesome, creepy mask!  If I could get the actual David Bowie to go with it, that would be a dream come true!

Ooo, that's always been my dream costume. I'd love Sarah's dress!

Yes!!! I've always loved that scene! Oh man.


Aside from that now I would love an authentic Victorian or Edwardian gown with all the trimmings!
