7  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Witch Luminary Jar -Image heavy on: September 21, 2018 08:52:33 AM
When I first saw the fairy jars that PixieHill/knickertwist made I KNEW I had to make some. I used her tutorial and made this witch jar. I plan on making more and a friend suggested making some for Christmas. I used battery operated tealights in the jar.

I love how in the daylight it looks like a plain jar, but when the lights go out it shows off three fab witches.


During the daylight


Lights out!




8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Halloween My Little Pony Witch Carousel on: September 21, 2018 08:45:29 AM
I am doing a swap with some friends on Facebook and she loves cute creepy things. When I saw this adorable My Little Pony witch coloring page, I knew I had to stitch it up. It is a tea towel for her kitchen. I tinted the fabric with crayons.

SWAP DETAILS:
Here's how it works:
In this swap, you can contact anyone on Craftster and ask them to be your partner. It's almost like a personal swap, but with a group, and a killer gallery! You will have to sign up with your partner. That is, you must contact your potential partner via pm and you both must mutually agree to be partnered together. Once you have a partner, each of you must pm me with your information, and after doing all the necessary double checking, I will post you both together as participants and add this swap to your "In progress" feedback.

As partners, you will choose if you want to have a theme, if you want to stalk each other and be surprised, or if you want to request from each other things you have admired in the past. You should also agree on quantity. Make sure that you both agree on a size.  Feel free to start crafting for your partner as soon as you are both officially signed up!
If you want to participate, but you are a bit shy of just asking someone, you can PM me and you'll be put on a list of "Potential Partners" in the next post, so people can choose from craftsters that are interested.

 RULES:
Please check into the thread once per week.



THIS IS A VERY IN DEPTH SWAP AND WE ARE TRADING WITH PEOPLE WE LIKE. PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY AND BE READY TO SEND ON TIME!

ONE NOTE: It is a little scary to ask someone to be your partner. Some people may have someone else already in mind, or they may not have the time or funds to participate right now, or they may just not be interested. We need to remember to be nice if we feel we need to refuse someone, and to not take it personally if someone else turns us down.

So, in summary, here's what you need to do:

1. Contact your partner (make sure they're in good standing, swapwise), and agree to join together
2. Both partners must PM kittykill and each other with the questionnaire including mailing information.  
3. Post in this thread weekly so I can keep up with you!
4. Make sure you can mail on time, and provide organizer with a USPS tracking number for U.S. packages.  If you are shipping internationally, make sure to save your post office receipt.
5. PM your partner and organizer when you receive.Thank your partner both in a PM and publicly in the gallery. If you are unable to post pictures, please let your partner know before they send to you so that they can make sure to take pictures to post.  We all want to see what you got!
6. Lack of PMs to organizer and your partner will be noted in feedback!!!
7. Have fun!
8. You can have 2 partners

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer  AND to your partner
