Details of swap:
Do you love Halloween? Do you love opening presents? Did you want to do the 13 days of Halloween but couldn't because of money issues? 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, you will open the first on October the 19th, the second on October the 20th and so on until halloween. When the gallery goes up you will reserve yourself a mini gallery and as you open your parcels each day you will post a pic of your item in your gallery (example in next post)

Item requirements:
-13 small items are required. (that is, each of the 13 items is under $10 to buy or under an hour to make) 1 for each day.
-You should try to give at least 6-7 items that are crafted. These can be up-cycled items as well as items made from scratch.
-The first item to be opened (on October 19th) will be a container/bag of some sort that holds the other items. You can either make a container/ bag from scratch, or decorate one, your choice.
-1 item/day will be candy/food (preferably timed so your partner can enjoy a yummy treat before the big day). If your partner cannot eat candy, you could make a candy-related item instead (say a candy shaped polyclay pendant, a bag made from candy fabric etc etc).
-spoiling is fine, either by adding more items or making items bigger then the small requirement, so long as you and your partner agree on it. just remember, if your sending international it may get expensive.
-This swap will require photos in the gallery(its half the fun of the swap!), you might want to ask your partner to take some photos of their items before they send just in case your camera packs up.
-Other then that, what you make is up to you and your partner.
And most of all, have fun!

Do you think he can be bribed into the swap thing by getting something for himself, or is the effort just wasted on him? Grin
My guys, all of them, always complain about that I don't make more stuff for them.
He probably would never swap. His thing is more electronics. When he makes something, it has to light up, make noise (usually a lot of noise), and move. And it takes him forever. Currently under construction at our house are Gort (from The Day the Earth Stood Still - the original), Bender (from Futurama), and the Terminator skull. As Star Trek has no robots, we have nothing from Star Trek.
In all the years we've been married, I've made him a tote bag, and one and a half sweaters (I really should finish that other one some day). Oh, and stenciled some t-shirts.

i have a  moving enterprise and klingon warbird set ive never put together i got about 5 years ago. they light up, make shooting sounds and chase each other around a planet in a circle(if they were built that is lol)

robotwise, ever seen bride of chaotica(st:voyager)?one of my favourite voyager episodes. Cheesy there is this guy he could make

1.so it appears that the problem with the parcel is that some ninny had bad eyesight and sent my parcel to the wrong postcode (the postcode was ok on the box). people liked writing on my box he he.
2.here is everything opened! i bet your thinking, "thats marvin" but nooooos! thats SUZY, HIS SISTER!!(bet you didnt know he had one ha?) she shares a circuit with him!

3. suzy and me!(excuse my "im sick of homework face" lol. coding dna in genetics will do that to you) snazzy said suzy may be a bit crazy because her head is upside down, but i think that makes her look cute! kind of an anime look.
4. i likes suzy so much she goes with me everywhere. i had her when i was getting ready for bed, and i turns my back for 2 seconds, and look who wants to take her! that naughty kitty gave me some lovely puncture wounds in some very ackward places when i had to take suzy away from her.(i should mention that my cat is diagnosed with depression, but the only times she scratches ME is when im taking her to the cattery when i go away or im taking away something she reeeeaaallly wants. Cheesy )

5. i think this purse was an extra(?) its so pretty. and whats that poking out of the top?
6. its a BABELFISH!! and a fuzzy one at that. this, too, is so cute! it has cute little eyes and fins. heres my other cat with the babelfish.(dont mind her grumpy look, the babel fish tried to get into her ear but it couldnt fit Tongue )

7. A towel keyring!!! this is such a cool idea! it fits perfectly on my bag or in the bathroom hooks, i can never get my towels to stay up.

8. the dont panic homework book. a great idea if you have work due in the next day!
9. dont panic jar. i think im gonna put candy in it so, just in case i still panic after seeing the homework book, i can grab a lolly and try not to keep on panicing

10. The "dont panic eye test", modified from my wist to be even better!it says "dont panic marvin is coming to save you...yay" he he he!the frame broke but the pictures fine, i love it!
11.awesome candy from new zealand. its like a cross between lollie bananas and peeps, but with pineapple juice, and covered in chocolate. nom nom nom!

such a cool swap! thanks snazzy and dark seraphim.

i hopes every goes ok with your parcel ruby. i wish i could angel for you but im in the middle of planning to organise a swap

edit:forgot to add that i got an awesome bracelet too. it has colours representing the characters,
gold-zaphod or me! Grin

I was just surfing, looking at random Vulcan pics, and if I see one more picture of Barack Obama 'shopped into a Vulcan - what's up with that?

i know how you feel. ive been seeing them too. another thing that i hate is when people put up pics of michael jackson with no nose or heath ledger (just after he died) with huge needles and drugs. some people are just insensitive.

on another note, teaser time!

hmmmm i wonder brown with white, grey and black stuff(ok so not the best teaser ever but hey, its a teaser lol)

plus 2 pics from my recent trip. one of me holding a cute baby croc....

and one of me feeding a 4m croc. nom nom
