1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: 13 Days of Halloween round 9 on: November 24, 2017 01:35:23 PM
Soooo many wonderful things here!  I apologize for my lack of input.  I've been unwell for a while.  (Nothing bad, just LOADS of weird vertigo, which brought on migraines and both of which brought on nausea.  Exercises/maneuvers and motion sickness drugs helped it to finally ease up - but for over a month looking at screens or moving much made it all worse).

So, I'm better; but, I've been lousy at comments!  And, I totally forgot to acknowledge my awesome partner (thanate) sending me a bonus gift!  She very generously sent me a lovely extra package - full of ephemera.  Can't wait to get crafting with it!

Ooh, this is super cute! It would be fun to put something nifty into the box each day for the kids to open and find, they would adore it!

I've also done them with little matchboxes - if you want to put a little item or note for each day.  Wish I'd though of it when my kids were small!  I did a Halloween one with a list of items appropriate to the 4 year old it was aimed at. 

I really love a good countdown ;-)


Thanks for all your positive comments.  These are great fun to do.  I need to make our house a Halloween countdown!

Thanks for all the lovely comments!  I think I'm going to make one for our house next year - with dominos instead of matchboxes - since I don't need to open little boxes ;-)

what tune does it play?
. If memory serves, it was All Around The Mulberry Bush :-)

Started out as the Very Hungry Caterpillar, altered for the Vintage Halloween Swap.  I was swapping with the mega-talented Rackycoo, and really struggled with what to make her.  If she liked it half as much as I liked what I got, it's a win  Grin!

Made this for my partner in the 12 days of Christmas swap last year.  The first 12 day cards were the tags on her gifts so she'd know what to open.  The base is an old cigar box and the back opens to hold the cards.  (Don't know why they are sideways - sorry!)
