I received my package from Metal Vyxen today.  I can't believe how fast the shipping is from the US to Australia!  It takes longer when I ship to Canada!

On to the loot:
This is going to be used as a Halloween decoration.  My kids will be so excited cause we don't have a ton of Halloween stuff.

I LOVE this necklace and keychain

Ooooh and a bloody brooch (well it's going to be turned into a brooch)

A bottle of blood pendant

Some super cute fang hair clips which my daughter is going to try to steal

An awesome mug!  I needed one as I only have one at home that I wash everyday so I can drink my nightly tea

And last but not least is a blood spattered pillow!!!!

She also sent me some extras
Two Kinder Surprise eggs (one has already been consumed)  I have been curious about these forever!

Some Bloody Vampire Suckers

And some things from Australia that I asked she send me as this was my first swap with someone from across the ocean.

Thank you so much!!!

And Metal Vyxen received from me a while back so I am going to post photos of what I sent to her.

A crochet bracelet

Two stenciled shirts to equal a large

and I believe the black and silver bracelet.  The red one went to lvl0rg4n

yay!  Grin  I'm so glad you like everything!!!  that pin is why I asked if you were into steampunk.  the idea just popped into my head from nowhere.  I usually just make pins with bar backs, but something told me to make the tie tack part of it.  I was so happy with the way it came out.  Grin

I did get an ok picture of that shadow box.  it's a little shiny, but I don't think you can see my reflection in it.  Wink

Shocked Shocked Shocked  I just realized; you didn't throw out the packaging and stuff did you??  you're missing an item!!!  Undecided

but now it's my turn to post photos because I received today too!

so cute; a House of Night-inspired bracelet!:

I need me some of those moon charms.  I've never seen any like it before.

I do love this, I really do; a vampire plaque:

2 t-shirts; one is a fanpire shirt, the second is a Buffy/Spike shirt:

this one had to lay on the floor because, well...some of the glue didn't quite hold.  simple fix though.  Wink  a Bella and Edward shrine:

I always need these (and now I don't have to worry about making a new one for myself Wink); a book thong:

these are PERFECT for my mangas.  regular bookmarks are either too long or too bulky.

a couple of extras; a plush apple that can be used as a pincushion, and an iron-on apple (more stuff for my Twilight obsession):

and lastly, an awesome vampire-inspired messenger bag!:

under my hand there you can kinda see part of one pocket, and then inside you can see one pocket at my fingertips, and if you look real close at the lining in the back there, you might be able to see 2 more pockets as well.  I love pockets.  Grin  and I love this messenger bag.  now I can take all that crap out of my olive green purse and give it a better, not falling apart home.  Grin

thank you so much Sevs!!!

OMG, I'm such a douche, I ahd all pictures here and then wanted to preview again and hit refresh and everything was gone T_T

Well I recieved today! The package was torn, which made me mad, but what can you do?

Psychonmemphis drew me as a vampire! The skulls and hands have majorly fallen off, but can be glued back on. What is that pointy thing? I want to get like 2 and make my own mini asylum!

Bloody feather, bloody yes!

Wood cross that I need to hang in my room.

And inside I found a set of these,

I honestly don't know what that is, but I figured:

This will go on my black purse.

My partner lvl0rg4n and I met up yesterday to exchange packages.  It was so nice to actually meet up with a fellow Craftster.  I stupidly didn't take any photos of her with the stuff I made her or with the stuff she made me!  Oops.  Anyway here's the loot
Poly clay fang earrings

A charm bracelet that I love

my favorite charm

Poly clay fang pendant, I can't wait to wear it next weekend

All the jewelry came in this coffin

She hand painted this bag for me.  I love the saying!

And I forgot to take a photo of the outside of this box.  It has a cross, a bloody handprint, and blood drops.  It's my very own Vampire hunting kit!!!!!!
The lid has a list of my vampire kills, maps, stakes, and a German bible

Inside there are stakes, vampire killing tools, and lots of wax sealed jars with fangs, and salt, holy water, ashes, etc.

Thanks so much!!!!!!!

Here are the goods I received from Lindy:

My absolute favorite, straight from my wists!
She stenciled it!

A really adorable lap blanket that has vampire teeth. My mom has tried to steal it from me all day.

Lindy's kids are adorable. They kept asking me my favorite color and what my favorite stuffed animal was. Her daughter over heard me talking about my doll obsession and gave me a one legged doll. Lindy gave me this awesome box filled with hand stamped cards, a necklace with vampire blood, and an awesome wire bracelet:

She also got the hint that I loved a resin pendant she made and she very sweetly put a bale on it and gave it to me:

Thanks Lindy!

I just received my awesome swap package from Rainya!

She sent me a cool purse made out of a hard back cover of Eclipse, a keychain with three vials containing "Holy Water, Liquid Silver, and Vampire Blood," a wooden jewelry box featuring a painted vampire bite graphic, a smaller keychain with vampire themed key words, and my favorite part of all... Sigmund! an amigurumi stuffed penguin...because I collect stuffed penguins just like Anita Blake.

Thank you, lady! I love everything, especially Sigmund!

Here's my loot:


Closeup of the writing on the book cover: (Rainya, you have beautiful handwriting!)

Closeup of the keychain

One last shot of the book cover/purse:

I'm gonna go cuddle with Sigmund now!

Thanks again, Rainya!

Last but not least...Jean-Claude!!! I LOVE HIM!

Somehow I forgot to post a pic of the amazing bookmark that Krafty_Karasu stitched for me!  In fact, it is so fabulous that my sister begged to be able to keep it. Cheesy

She figured out the pattern on her own, isn't it beautiful!

My kids totally ate some of the cookies!  The picture of the blanket isn't showing up Sad that was the one item I didn't get a photo of. 

I am so glad you liked everything, here is a close up photo of the necklace.  I love the way it turned out.
