31  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Goth Swap: S/U July 6-July 13, Send out: August 14, 2017 on: July 31, 2017 07:34:33 PM
I'm doing grand - I have two weeks off before I start a new job, but so far it's not been that productive - but tomorrows another day. The weather is chilly (as I'm in the Southern Hemisphere) but it's not raining and its not as cold as it has been. Plus the days are beginning to get longer again now that winter solstice is done Smiley

So Calixita and I can breathe a HUGE sigh of relief as the post office finally came through with my package Cheesy

I don't have too much time right now, so I will just post a group shot of all my creepy cute packages -

Here's a close up on the zombie kitty one one of the packages, so creepy cute!

Back soon with more creepiness!


Calixita wrapped all my packages so beautifully, here's day one:

Inside was a creepy tree -made from a Pringles container I think?

The door opens to reveal some  candies inside! So fun Smiley


Another beautifully wrapped package, with a metal kitty on one side!

Inside is a set of the most amazing black cat cards - I love cats, so these are perfect.


I got too excited about this one and ripped into it before I took a photo! But I remembered to take a photo of the fun card.

I got a set of magnets with movie posters on them - I love the cover art on each one.

My favourite of the set is the Love Witch one, which is one of my favourite movies of the last year.

Also - prepared to be amazed! I received a jointed Vincent Price Magnet.


I also recieved some extras, I think I'm going to put the ghost peeps in our hot chocolates tonight and put the Day of the Dead skull on my craft room door Smiley


Another beautifully wrapped package

Inside is the cutest crochet black cat basket!

The basket was filled with all kinds of goodies, I told Calixita that I like sewing trims, but it can be hard to get nice ones here in NZ  and she sent me some lovely ones.

I also got this cute stamp (and stamp pad).

Also look at this fun mini crow (or raven) candle!

I didn't end up taking photos of everything in the basket as they was so much fun stuff, but these three were my favourites Smiley


Seriously guys, all these packages are so beautifully wrapped.

And inside, the cutest witches hat brooch - which reminds me of one of my favourite movies The Love Witch!


Also last night as we were watching horror movies and eating treats from the Halloween Tree, I found a little extra in there! How cute is he! I love nightmare before Christmas.


So this my favourite day of wrapping - look at that adorable zombie kitty!

And inside? A crochet book, which is one craft I'd love to learn. I also got a crochet hook (but for some reason I didn't photograph it)


I received a HUGE mug that made it all the way from Canada to NZ unscathed! It has the most amazing crochet cozy, this is going to be my sewing room mug as I always get distracted and my tea gets cold, this will keep it warmer for longer Cheesy


I'm sad - because somehow I forgot to take a photo of the wrapping paper on this one Sad But I'm not sad about what I received! Super awesome sweater clips with black kitties Smiley

I remembered to take a photo of the packaging again, just as well given the card includes one of my favourite studio Ghibli characters - Jiji!

And inside - the cutest thing ever!! A crochet Kuromi - she's my favourite Sanrio character - I love this Halloween version. Especially the removable witches hat!

DAY 10

Ok I did take a photo of the packaging, but for some reason it didn't work out Sad

Anyway basically every craft swap I do I ask for a hoopla - I am gradually covering one wall of my sewing room with them, and Calixita made me an amazing one!

I like how it's so pretty and lacy and it's not till you take a closer look you rabsence! ealize there's something creepy happening!

DAY 11

Sorry for being so quiet, life got a bit busy! Here's my last few days of swap packages!

I received another lovely day of creepy cute crochet things! I smaller case is a glasses case with a zombie face and the zippered pouch features a kitty that looks like my cat Mia!

DAY 12

Next up was a package for my "pretty kitty Mia"

A crochet skeleton fish (how did you know fish was her favourite!) complete with catnip

Mia also received this very cute witches hat!

Now Mia is a sassy as they come senior rescue cat, but by some miracle we ACTUALLY got the witches hat on her long enough to take a photo of her. I'm pretty sure she will kill us in our sleep, but it's totally worth it.

DAY 13! 

I received two amazing Halloween necklaces - just look at the detail in that vintage cat necklace, it's all beaded and amazing!

I love that book plate and is that pillow embroidered? It's incredible! Really hoping my package to my partner arrives soon - I'm getting worried its been lost Sad

Everything by The Cure - they have been to New Zealand twice in the past 10 years, and I've been there both times. Also I know TV shows weren't on the list, but there's some amazing creepy shows now - my favourite it probably Bates Hotel.
