21  Re: Stuff a Small Flat Rate Box for Halloween Rnd 3! in The Swap Gallery by La Chapa on: October 18, 2015 10:43:23 AM
So much awesome! Love everything! That ghosty mug rug is just precious!

I received from phoenixfiredesigns, and I love everything (of course!)!

here's the whole shabang

The mini is so awesome and it's my second mini piece!  I may have to dust off a shelf and make a little mini scene!  The little skulls are going to decorate my brother's grave for day of the dead this year, so thank you so much!  And I love my socks and bookmark!  My son and I will be coloring the wooden ornaments as part of our Halloween craft day.  And oh-my-gawd I love my moon jewelry so much!  I'm not sure what bead is in the ring, but I love it!  And is that opalite in the pendant?  Anyway, everything is amazing, and I hope you like what I sent half as much!

and some close ups of the mini and the jewelry!

25  Squeakers the crochet bat in Halloween Decor and Parties by La Chapa on: September 17, 2015 02:35:22 PM
I made this little crochet bat for stitchzBstitchz in the Vintage Halloween Swap this year.  She named him squeakers, and I'm glad he's found a good forever home.  I'm thinking of writing up a pattern, because I can see myself wanting to make more of these little guys, but I may need to tweak the wings a little more.  Anyway, he was fun to make.  Thanks for looking!

26  Crochet Pumpkin Witch in Halloween Decor and Parties by La Chapa on: September 17, 2015 02:22:09 PM
I made this crochet pumpkin for stitchzBstitchz in the Vintage Halloween swap this year.  It's one of my favorite swaps of the year!  I really love prim style, and this piece is largely influenced by that. 

Thanks for looking!

pheonixfiredesigns, I am ridiculously excited about being partnered with you! (I love moons!) I've admired your work for quite a while! (Full!) Your feline friend is adorable,(Moon!) and I guess we will be swapping fur too! Here's what you'll be getting...

p.s. I have to admit it's been difficult to resist sending hints and subliminal messages about what I'd love to receive, but I just think that would be bad swap etiquette.   Grin Grin Grin

LOVE Frankie and the Bride, and that is the most awesome wallet ever!

I received from stitchzBstitchz today!  We had agreed to send some extras with out package and boy oh boy did she spoil me!  I got tons of my favorite Halloween candy, and a painted and collaged canvas of a gypsy cat (which she did as a play on the fact that I have a cat named Gypsy!), AND her first altered tin ever!  I love everything!

Thanks stitchzBstitchz!!!  Feel free to post better close up shots of the tin if you have them.   Grin

 Cheesy You guys are cracking me up!  Only a confident man would do something like that!  Kudos to him!

Kittykill, so glad you like your mandala! 

I received from sheepBlue, and I apologize for not getting pics up sooner(sorry sheepBlue!), but I absolutely love these gorgeous vial necklaces that she made me with all sorts of natural wonders! Unfortunately the one with the citrine and amethyst crystals did break, but I will find a good use for them.

So hard to get a good picture of these, but one has a tiny pine cone and some moss, the other has tiny feathers, another has shards of sea urchin shell, and the last one has a tiny mushroom and some moss.  Absolutely love these! Thanks sheepBlue!

rscowtown, a quilt out of wolf t-shirts sounds awesome!  I would love to make something like that for my son who loves wolves.  I'm glad you liked your package!  The sandals were fun to make, and I actually think I'll make some for my own sister.  Grin

I received an wonderful package of awesome beaded jewelry from anna.wahnsinn! She sent me a beautiful necklace with some kind of gemtone beads as the center piece, and not one but TWO beaded crescent moon rings!!  One fits great as a traditional ring, and the other is a perfect midi ring.  I wore the midi ring today and I'm in love with it!  Thanks a million Anne!  I love it when you claim me because beading is one of the few crafts that I dare not attempt!   Cheesy

Round 116 was a great round for me!  Thanks as always for hosting rscowtown!
