A sweet potato! Shocked

Let us know how you did with your goodies!

I updated my original post.  We got the largest check from this year's county fair!   Grin

I also love the witchy images Atsuko is using in her houses!  I received my first chunky house ever from NH822, and it's a doozy.  I love the black beaded texture along the left side of the house front.  But wait, does that 'spooky' door open? 

An awesome vintage Halloween image with the word 'fright' defined at the roofline. 

The back has a spiderweb with a felt jack-o-lantern spider.  She found a Halloween house card to sent along with the package!

Thank you so much, NH822, I love it!  Now I need to decide where to display them.  Can everyone please show how theirs are displayed once we receive them all?  That would be really fun to see.

Sorry you guys, it took me forever to find our gallery.  I kept looking at the round 61 gallery.  Duh. 

A piece of pie which smells wonderful, I think it is soap. (MissingWillow, please correct me if I am wrong.)

Yep, that is peach pie soap.  I'm so glad you like everything!

Well, I didn't open my box until this morning because I didn't trust myself!  So here's a photo of everything wrapped, plus up front is my day 1 gift.  A great fabric bag with a really interesting closure.  Inside were a Halloween note pad and red hot candies.  I ran out of red hots about 2 weeks ago making candied apple jelly and I need some for gingerbread men (and snacking) so excellent timing!  Thanks so much, Sweetyetevil!

October 20
Sweetyetevil and I decided to make day two a candy day.  What a great idea it turned out to be!  She sent all of my favorites and also all of my husband's favorites!  There's red licorice, skittles, Mounds, caramel apple pops and lots of chocolate.  I was afraid to send chocolate because we've had record heat but this came 100% intact.  We don't get trick or treaters here so there's never an excuse to have candy in the house.  Thanks so much for the candy, Sweetyetevil!  

October 21
Today, I got an adorable sewn pumpkin in Halloween fabrics, isn't it cute!?

October 22
Today I received glittery skull magnets, they went right on my refrigerator.  Thanks Sweetyetevil, I love them!  

October 23
Today's package contained two fun items!  An embroidered zombie hand hoop and a coordinated candy finger lollipop.  

October 24
We decided to dedicate a day to our dogs.  What I am wondering is if I got the right date, I may have made it the 26th.   Undecided Anyway... we did almost the exact same thing for each others dogs!  Here's an action shot of Jenna wearing some festive collar bling!  A dog bone resin pendant and a zombie heart pendant.  Also included in today's package were an assortment of dog treats.  Jenna will be sharing these with our livestock guardian dogs.  Treats for everyone today!

October 25
Today's package contained a cute wooden pumpkin garden stake.  It's been installed in my herb bed between the tarragon and the thai basil.  Thanks Sweetyetevil!

October 26
Today I got jewelry!  A necklace with a vintage cat image on one side and monsters on the other.

October 27
Today I got a companion embroidery hoop to the zombie hand one I already received, it's so pretty!  

October 28

My partner has such awesome embroidery talents!  Today I received a framed owl embroidery that will look beautiful in my dining room year round.  It's just lovely.

October 29
Today's package - a sparkly pumpkin resin key ring!

October 30
Hiding in my lemon tree are today's items.  Two cute owl ornaments and a Halloween stamp with block!  

October 31
A Halloween centerpiece!  Happy Halloween and thanks so much to my partner, Sweetyetevil!

I'm so thrilled. During my insomnia these last few days, I finished knitting my scarf for missingwillow. It's SO soft, I might have to make another one for me!

Woo hoo, can't wait to see it!  Thanks so much, Laura!

I checked out a book from the library called Artist Trading Card Workshop by Bernie Berlin.  It has a lot of nifty ideas on how to do the background painting (or sewing, what-have-you).

Thanks for the info, it looks great!

I got received from Cinnamon Teal today and I LOVE everything!  I am in awe of her crafting skills!  First of all, she sent me some large stickers/wall clings from her stash, plus some fabric.  I literally had that skull fabric in my hands at the fabric store a few weeks ago.  The yellow is vintage fabric is from her great aunt's travels to India.

Mixed media art (!) depicting two of the creatures we raise on our farm.  I am thrilled with these and have a brand new shelf that they are going to live on. 

Hand made thank you and holiday cards.  How cute are these? 

Dog bones for our dogs from her dog Caleb.  Jenna already sampled and gives them a paws up!

A hand carved stamp for our farm!  My husband bought me a huge weeping willow tree for my birthday 3 years ago.  Beavers had carted it off within the first week after planting it.  I am seriously in awe of this, as is my husband. 

Does anyone remember the 'The NOT $200 Acorn and Pompom Hat' craftster post from a few months ago?  I thought that was the cutest winter hat I had ever seen and put it on my wist.  Well, I found one in my box in a gorgeous wine color.  I was like... seriously?  I now have one??  I bow to your knitting skills, Cinnamon Teal, and I LOVE the hat.  Thank you thank you thank you so much for everything!
