11  Re: Chunky Houses Halloween Edition Rnd 4 - Gallery in The Swap Gallery by thepeachmartini on: October 15, 2013 06:14:09 AM
I can finally post pics of the spooky little house I received from irid3sc3nt! She ran with my E. A. Poe theme!  Grin

Here's a better angle of that creepy bird!

...and a rather snarky looking skele!

But! Wait! When daylight comes, that creepy bird is GONE!

Thank you so much to irid3sc3nt and coconutbells for making this a fun swap!! Looking forward to making more chunky houses in the future! Smiley

12  Chunky House Addiction in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by thepeachmartini on: October 10, 2013 07:12:21 AM
I participated in the Halloween/October Holidays edition of the Chunky House Swap this time around - so much fun!! I think I'm addicted to making them now, so here are the one's I've made so far.

This was made for my friend after she saw the houses I made for the swap - her birthday is coming up, and we're both big fans of E. A. Poe, so I wanted to incorporate that in her house. I called this one "The Oval Portrait" based on one of his short stories.

The back...

This is the house I made for coconutbells in the swap...this was made based off of a Victorian-era ghost story I read online, namely this passage:
She started and stopped short, for at that moment, a long-drawn shriek, as of someone in peril, the very shriek she had heard before, rung through the castle. Again and again it rose; died down; and rose again.

Edith staggered against the wall; she trembled so she could not stand. But her husband, who should have been there to support her, was gone. At the first sound of the awful cry, he had rushed from the room; and as Edith pressed her hand to her heart, she heard his fast receding steps echoing in the distance.

She was left alone, to meet the coming horror, whatever it might be

That's good old Edith peeking out the window...and I incorporated a great picture of Alexander the Seer - only he knows why Edith is terrified!! MUAAHAHAHAHAAA!!

And here is the house I made for irid3sc3nt - she stated she liked toads, skeletons, crows/ravens, and vintage Halloween...

I loved the picture of the toad I found - he definitely needed a great hat for Halloween. The Skeleton sticker was one I'd been hoarding for a while and decided this was the perfect project Smiley The tree is made from 12g or 14g wire, wrapped in brown floral tape - it makes the perfect bark! The little black crow button is from a vintage lot I bought a while back.

Thanks for looking Smiley

I received my wonderful package from Sylwa yesterday!!

When I opened the box, this is what greeted me Smiley

Here's the fab coffee!

Beautiful soap that smells delicious!

This great little sign that she wood burned - love it!

Super cheery mug rug and mug 'hug'  Grin

...and just when I thought the soap smelled great, I opened up this container of coffee sugar scrub. ZOMG!!!!
It smells like some kind of wonderful dessert!!! And it makes my skin feel so good!! I think it's funny that we both made a sugar scrub  Wink

Thanks for swapping with me, Sylwa! It was a lot of fun!!  Cheesy

I received my awesome package from sarahelise today!!  Smiley

Here's the whole she-bang...back row from L to R: "How To Make Coffee So Good You'll Never Waste Money At Starbucks Again", adorable memo pad featuring a lovely cuppa, Lindt Lindor chocolates, chocolate covered coffee beans (LOVE these things!), locally roasted whole bean coffee from Cafe Chicago (in her note she says: So the coffee: it's organic and the beans are grown in a woman's nun cooperative in Nicaragua. The beans are roasted in Chicago at an organization which provides jobs for precariously housed immigrants. So it's delicious and does good!" Then we have a Doctor Who inspired mug cozy, which she saw on my Pinterest Smiley I squee'd over the bow tie  Grin There's a cheeky luggage tag that says "I like my coffee like I likemy men: strong and rich!"  Wink There are delicious-looking Greek cookies with dark chocolate, and a great stack of coffee-themed note pads and a little pen.

But wait! There's more!
This AMAZING coffee tray!! She said this was her first attempt at resin, and I would have to agree that it turned out way cool!! The background of the tray is made up of little circles of coffee bags, and then she arranged the coffee beans into the steaming cuppa joe design. Definitely getting a shelf all it's own in my kitchen!

Also, hiding inside the cookbook, there was this great little bookmark!

And here's a closer look at the cookbook:
The Cover

Homemade Nogged Coffee, Traditional Irish Coffee, and Gingerbread Latte recipes

Peppermint Mocha, Spicy Chocolate Mocha

Iced Coffee recipes (Vanilla Banana Coffee Milkshake, Frulatte, Jamaican Coffee, Mocha Frappe)

Thank you so much sarahelise!!! I love everything, and you did an awesome job on the tray, and the coffee smells heavenly!! Cheesy

20  Haunted Halloween Birdhouse in Halloween Decor and Parties by thepeachmartini on: October 22, 2012 10:27:48 AM
I've been wanting to make one of these for a while now, and figured the October Holiday OTT swap was a good opportunity! Since my partner already received and posted pics in the gallery, I figured I'd share it over here Smiley

I definitely plan on making more of these types of things - it was so fun to add all the little details! I actually had a request to make one for a girl I work with - she wants it extra spooky Cheesy

One side features a vampire-themed cemetery scene...

The other side (my favorite!) features another cemetery scene, and a spooky old tree!

Here's the back; a little tame but I like the background paper. I used a silver glitter pen on the swirls to add a little sumthin'-sumthin' Wink

Here's the top...the text reads: listen to the night broken and halting

And here's the front. I struggled with this because I really wanted to incorporate a creepy black bird, but all of them I had handy put it over the size limit for the swap. So, Mr. Skelly will have to do!

Thanks for looking! Smiley
