I received two ATCs after coming home from a ten hour drive for Thanksgiving.

Curiousfae chose my adorable deer theme.
"Adorable Deer"

She made it with pencil and watercolor pencils.  She wrote that she wasn't sure how adorable it was, but that its eyes make it pretty cute to her.  I agree!

thanate chose my Jorogumo theme.
"Venom Martini with a Fly Garnish"

She wrote that the spider seemed more spider than human, so she added the personality.  And her daughter made me a smiley face on the inside packaging, which is cute.


Thank you both!

I received two ATCs in the mail a couple days ago.


Here is "Helga's Batmobile" made by bunny1kenobi.  She used my theme: witch in a carriage being drawn by bats.  I have no idea how it was made.  But it's very cool and is a perfect use of that theme.



Here is "Cobwebs" by thanate. She used my spiders theme to create this.  It's ethereal.. like a ghost of a spider long gone.  Maybe it was a stencil?  Again, mystifying.

She also included these coloring sheets.  My son will be so happy when he sees them, although I'm considering keeping them for myself.  They definitely need googly eyes.

And the sticker on the envelope



Thank you both for the wonderful ATCs!

Here is the package I received from elliot_anne last week!

The front of the package

The back of the package

And the interior envelope with mind-blowing writing


The outside reads:
"Before You Open
Take a Shot
Spooky or Sweet
Watcha Got
Halloween
Orange and Black
Or Desserts
a Yummy Snack
Which Theme Did I Choose
Open Up for a Clue"

Then when you open it up it reads:
" It Was Too Hard to Choose
So I Made Both For You"


We'll start with the desserts (because I'm an adult and I can start with dessert Wink )

Ice cream bunting made from different kinds of paper

Paper cherry pie and felt doughnut with clear beads for sprinkles

Fabric cupcake.. which I am currently using as a patch for my jacket

A sweet popsicle or fudgesicle hand-carved stamp



Now for Halloween
TWO Halloween buntings

TWO Halloween tags

A fabric witch hat moon patch



Super awesome happy fun time swap!  Thank you elliot_anne for your craftiness and if you would like to share further pics, please do!

Here is the ATC from rockingbearranch.  She chose my half-woman-half-spider (jorogumo) theme.  She wrote that since it is half and half, she used half collage and half drawing.
It was difficult to photograph without having a glare because of the .... I'm guessing Mod Podge?... over it.



She sent it in this envelope with the cutest animal washi tape and included a page from a fine art book for future collage work.


Thank you, rockingbearranch!

Here are two ATCs I received from elliot_anne!  She wrote that one wasn't up to her caliber because her child was helping her with it, but I dunno what she's talking about because they are both great  Wink

Here is the letter N as part of letters for my son.  It has stamps, stickers, burlap and is super fun.

And bonus Halloween ATC with yowling cat


Thank you for both of them!

Here is the house I received from cmarion3!  Grrr... my other pic is coming out wonky.


It is see-through with a halloween house that has a glitter paper roof, window tops, and door.  There are three crows wheeling around it and a full moon. On the backside there are wire trees.  It has a decorative chain at the top so I can hang it in front of a window!

So, cmarion3, what is the hard plastic called so that I may acquire it for future projects?  And thank you so much for my new chunky!

Here is the ATC I received from Franki3Moon.  It's my bats theme!



You can't quite tell from the pic, but the bat is another layer so it is raised up a bit.  The black is on the bat, the silver is around it.  It's perfect for the season.
Thank you, Franki3Moon!

Here is the chunky I received from thepeachmartini!  I got it last week, but there was a non-sunny day then a windy day then a day I wasn't home then finally a good day.  It says, "standing in eternal indecision...she put on her hat".  It's a thick Chunky, made from a wooden coffin.


Back with nice cameo.


Here's the card she sent with it. Cute!  It's on my door with the other Halloween cards.


And the story behind the woman.

It reads, "Kalliope Darkmoore decided a proper hat would make everything better.  After choosing poorly on several occasions: once when a fortune teller asked her to think of her deepest desire, and all she could think of was Sheppard's Pie.  Or that time when faced with true love's kiss or a flagon of ale... sShe was thirsty, what did people expect?!  Yes, a hat certainly seemed innocent enough.  What she didn't realize was this hat had a bond with its wearer... that 'whomever shall place me on ye head, ye shalle be mine, and mine alone'.  It's a good thing she likes the hat."

Loved the story and, hey, my cat is named Caliope!

Thank you, thepeachmartini!

Here is the ATC I received from Witchhippie!  She chose my black cat theme.  It looked so perfect inside the card.  I love the slight curl to the whiskers and the super-curly tail.  Even though there is no mouth, this cat is definitely giving me the frowny face.  Such disapproval of my frivolity.  I love it!


And she included kitty stickers!


Thank you!
