Wow!  So much wonderful stuff in the gallery so far.  I can't believe I hadn't checked it yet! 

I received this awesome hoop from BriannaB03 today, and I am completely in love with it!

She also sent these two killer plastic aprons!  Love these!

Thank you so much Brianna!  I'm so happy!

Um, ok so I just got the coolest Vintage Halloween item from The Raging Sloth.  It's pretty much the coolest thing I own...


It's a paper mache skull with a frog on it!  I love everything about this thing!  I should have put something in the picture for scale, but it's pretty close to life size.  Thanks so, so much The Raging Sloth! 

Classic quote of the day: When I opened it my husband was sitting across the table from me and when he saw it, he said "Nuh-uh!"

I received my OTT from La Chapa!

So excited to have a triple-Halloween necklace!  Wink

Hey, glad you got it!  I was a little worried about them cracking, but they look like they survived just fine.

And here's what I got!
A gorgeous little bat trinket box, filled with some awesome bead trinket thingies.  I'm totally going to use them to make a bracelet or something.

and the inside...

Thanks aada, love my batty goodness! (and the skull too!)

74  Re: 3D Bug Swap CLOSED in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by La Chapa on: October 13, 2014 10:49:01 AM
La Chapa, I also had a pet tarantula. Mine was a 6" Mexican Red Leg, named Spydy. Yours appears to be in the rose family of arachnids. Tree dwellers, that are a bit more difficult to handle. Like a "spider" on speed. {they are not one...they are closer to rodents in classification..not an actual insect Grin}

I used to wear mine out in public like a broach. I had many comments about it. Please, never let someone handle it that will become "squeemish". If they drop it, it will explode. They can jump on their own, but unsuspecting...they don't put the right juices in place. They are usually low blood pressure. Mine died of cancer. With no vet I could find to cure it.

I love bugs  Grin If I can square away my life, I will be jumping in here. I think I can find the time. I just want to make sure before I commit to things.  Grin


It's Chilean.  This one is my daughter's.  She doesn't live with us so I don't see it much, but this was taken right after we bought it for her.  I did have a Chilean rose when I was in high school a long, long time ago.  My mom made me get rid of it when I went off to college so I took it to the pet store. 

THESE guys on the other hand are mine!  Bought them the same day as the tarantula.  I thought these were better for us since we have an active 4 yr old who likes to handle the pets.  I make him sit when he's holding these.  The middle one isn't dead!  They are death feigning beetles and one of them is particularly fond of playing dead at the slightest provocation.  I do hope you can join us stillatthetop!

Wow, love Mothman!

AND, here's the dotee I received from Smmarrt...

A moth!  Looks like a sphinx moth to me.  I love everything about this thing!  The colors, the patterns, and look at the little piece of lace!  Thank you Smmarrt!
I can't wait for the next dotee swap!!!!!!!

That albino bat is adorable! The face is precious and I especially like the wrap-around wings.

Thanks!  They can also hang open!

Wow! So many great packages!

fancybutch, I knew that wet felted piece was yours the moment I saw it!  Its gorgeous and very "you."  The flamingo is precious.  Great fabric choices!

Ludi, that chick is ADORABLE!!  It looks like taxidermy!  I just want to pet it. The base really adds something too.  I also love the penguin ornament.  Oh, and you certainly are famous here on Craftster.  You rose to fame rather quickly too!  I'm sure I'm not the only one who noticed how instantly popular you became.  Besides, 'underground' fame is always better than all around fame (except for the $ I suppose) because that means that you are admired by your peers and connoisseurs of your craft.   Wink  I hope that came out the way I intended it.   Smiley  Basically, we love you, and you're a rockstar!

Allons-y I love the Victorian bird silhouette!  I need a silhouette piece in my home.  I love them so much, and I've seen them all over the place.  The base for it is quite fancy!  The penguin stuffy looks so squishy! 

emilywilde, I think Gunter is a perfect name!


She made me a raven artdoll!...and a feather sculpture thingy to hang on my wall!  She also included a lovely vintage-y postcard!

I really, really love this feather!  She said it's a hydrostone sculpture?  I'm not sure what that is, but it sounds like water was involved somehow.  I'm baffled and very curious.  Enlighten us (well me anyway) artsycandice!

It is PERFECT for my cabinet of natural history curiousities wall!  Say that 10 times fast!  Lol!

And a close up of my beautiful raven art doll!

Isn't she beautiful!?!?  Candice, I'm sure you have better pics.  I apologize that I always have the crappiest pics, but it seems that I'm always opening these in the middle of the night after work, and using my crappy camera phone with crappy flash lighting because it really is the fastest method with the least amount of steps for me to get pics up. 

Anyway, here's the backside...

I've already found a home for her amongst some of my other dolls.

Oh! I almost forgot to mention that she is completely articulated!  All her joints function, and I am floored by that!
LOVELY!  I couldn't be happier!  Thanks artsycandice!

See, I knew that Ludi would come up with some interesting twist to the traditional dotee!  I received mine as well, and it is in my opinion equally as fabulous as artsycandice's. 

although my picture is not so fabulous because you can't really see the wonderful detail

I absolutely love this piece!  The way she did the root-like legs with all the little tendrils, fabulous!  There is so much energy in Ludi's stitching that I love to just follow the movement with my eyes.  Thank you Ludi!

I can't wait to see Smmarrt's!
