On Day 1 I received:

Three ghouls to keep me company. You cant see it in the picture but they have red (bead) eyeballs.
They now guard m garden fence!

plus: sticky eyeballs (glow in the dark!) that run down windows. The cat is very fascinated

On Day 2 (zombie day) I received:

a handprint sticker (goes to my front door) and zombie paper doll chains!

plus a mystery walking dead figure. Who might it be?


a corporate zombie. Nice  Grin (in my opinion he has a rather "healthy" skin tone for a zombie  Grin)

On Day 3 I received:

delicate beaded bat earrings

the awesomeness continues:
On Day 4 I received:

I received two felt patches and some skulls beads for my collection. The skull patch is going to go on my jacket (as a pin)

On Day 5 I received:

"the glass Lizzie Borden drank from just before her death in 1927" Very hard to photograph but you hopefully get the impression that there is an etched hand print on it..

plus caution tape. I may put it on the toilet door...

On Day 6 I received: (I realised I have to use more adverbs to properly appreciate calixitas work)

Books <3
two supertiny ones: one with beautiful pictures of Mount Auburn Cemetery, one with tiny horror film poster (beginning and ending with one of "night of the living dead"   Grin) and a very inspiring "Book of skull"s with pictures of artwork that involve skulls.

I love that font and it is free!

plus a neat magnetic bookmark

On Day 7 I received:

Seven more tiny books:

One with spooky images (it also has googly eyes on the cover)

One with poetry, containing "Tourist Season" by David R. Gluck (cracked me up) and "untitled" by Michael Nguyen (creepy )

One with pictures of "Northhampton State Hospital" and "Danvers State Hospital" (so cool)

One Skizzenbuch (sketchbook in German) with blank pages

One Zeitschrift (magazine in German) with also blank, lined pages

One leather bound with blank pages

and one labeled "My Dolls" with creepy doll face pictures

plus a mini woodland  library,lined with horror movie posters and a library gargoyle to watch them all

I am quite overwhelmed and cant even imagine how much work went into all that tiny books and the bookshelf
love them all!

On Day 8 I received:

An altered "model" (I dont know the name for it) house plus this story that goes with it (Read it!!):
A tiny zombie house:
A minor earthquake hit a small new england town and caused an explosion in an unused mine. A black cloud of dust settled in a 30 mile area surrounding the old mine. It was mostly woods and 1 building, The Wooden Nickel Inn. All the animals quickly died and the humans at the Inn soon fell gravely ill themselves. Two elderly tourists were there the first to die but doctors were baffled as to treatment. Then police received a 911 call that the dead tourists were attacking the other inhabitants. No one has come out of the house since....

look at that tiny bloody axe, and the bloody handprint in the window!

isntt it supercool !?!

On Day 9 I received:

A necklace with three different shrink plastic pendants:
Momento mori, Black caviar for zombies and The black broken heart of an ex-lover   Grin Grin Grin Grin
Had a good laugh before I had to go to the dentist, thanks!

(sorry for the bad pic, it was the best out of 20..)

On Day 10 I received:

A felt oogie boogie stuffed with bugs. He is awesome and will join my collection of handcrafted pin cushions.

you can even take the bugs out. Look how tiny they are  Shocked (compared to my giant finger) and each one is different

calixita, you are such a delicate crafter

On Day 11 I received:

A beaded werewolf artwork. Calixita originally wanted to turn it into a cuff bracelet but thought Id find the colors too drab, thoshe briefly considered giving him a rainbow background  Smiley I think all ideas are good. I think it is beautiful anyways..

On Day 12 I received:

A bloody bathtub pin cushion with bone, hand and eyeball pin. It was Calixitas first time working with poly clay. Very creative!

On the last Cry Cry Cry Cry day I received:

Four awesome beaded bracelets. I love bracelets. The eye one is sooooooooooooo cool and the other have really pretty color combos

Action shot

I am so sad it is all over now. Calixita you have been an incredible partner. Everything I received is so thoughtful and well made. I hope to swap with you some time in the future again. Thank you.  Smiley
P.S. Due to your awesome bead work I got hooked up on beading again. And I blame you that I ordered 50 worth of what the internet says are the best beads (miyuki) and a loom  Wink

Good golly!  I nearly forgot to grab a spot!!
This space is for meeeeee!

My goodies!!

My cat got a special package that smelled so good, he dug into the box, pulled it out and tore it open 2 days early!

the skull is stuffed with catnip (hence the cat attraction).  Loch has been batting both toys all over the place over since and chewing the heck out of the skull (it's looking quite battered now!).  The treats are also obviously delicious (although I'm limiting him to only a few every night) and he is a very happy cat!!

I also got some lovely extras:  alphabet stamps, felt alphabet stickers, spooky decals and candy!  The chocolate eyeballs didn't survive the trip across the Atlantic very well.  They look terrifying tho'!   Grin

bone magnets that make a whole skeleton!  Very cool!  He now guards my fridge.

Glamis made me a funky Halloween wreath!  

She "tried to make it spooky and a bit odd".  Check out the teeth on these critters!!

mission accomplished!  I love it!  (I'm just sorry I couldn't get better pictures!)
link to a better picture courtesy of Glamis https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=608715&size=big&cat=&ppuser=62245#axzz2gmadFaS1


I unwrapped a cool old book.  (I love old books!)

But look what you find when you open it up!



I received the most awesome Halloween banner on day 4!

It is the perfect length for just over my mantel and I love the vintage images she used!

I've always admired the Halloween banners I've seen on this site and now I have one of my own.  I feel spoiled only 4 days into the swap!!


Today I opened an awesome Halloween tote!

I love the colors!!!
and also a fabulous necklace with a bird skull charm!!

So cool!!


Glamis, you are a most amazing crocheter!!!
Take a look at this wonderful work!

She found this on one of my pinterest boards and I'm in love with it!  And this is also precisely why I gave up trying to crochet anything for you, Glamis.  Your skills are leaps and bounds above mine!  The hand reaching out of the grave is so well done!  
Now I must find the perfect place to display it!


Fabulous raven candles!!

They are so lovely!  I have no idea how Glamis created them but I need another pedestal candle holder to display them both properly!


Amazing embroidered haunted house!!

I admire embroidery work so much and I love this spooky house!!  The delicate colors in the moon, the spooky trees, the ever-so-slightly unbalanced look of the top floor that makes me imagine that one good stomp of Frankenstein's monster's boot would send it plunging into the cavernous ravine that the house is perched above...   It is simply fabulous!!!


I received a wonderful set of creepy forest coasters!!

Glamis said she hopes they are versatile enough for round the year use.  I will definitely be using them all year!  My favorite one right now is the scene with the antlered creature!  She also made a perfect coaster holder to keep them in!

DAY 10

Halloween towels and brain soap!

to help me stay "creepy clean"!  The towels are so neat and perfect for when my niece comes for a visit!  (which will give me the perfect excuse to use them other times of the year besides October!)  The brain soap is awesome!  I'm suffering my first head cold of the season so I can't tell just what they smell like (except pleasantly sweet!).  I've put one next to the sink already and will try to save the other for next Halloween!

DAY 11

a pretty jewelry holder!

such a pretty cat silhouette!  It's perched in the living room for now so I can enjoy it!

and German candy!!

lots of chocolate and caramel goodness, fruit toffees and gummy-looking eyeballs!!  I'm looking forward to tearing into this stash!

DAY 11   Cry

It's a dreary grey day in Boston but today's gift has brightened it considerably!!  I am now the proud owner of a beautiful cat pillow!

And not just any cat!  Glamis did some serious stalking because she got my handsome Loch's face perfectly!
I can't tell you how thrilled I am with this!  I am only 4 cats away from being the stereotypical crazy cat lady and I love my new pillow so much!!
It's perfect for Halloween too because on the other side.....

Loch thinks the new sofa pillow is fabulous!  
Thank you so much, Glamis!!!!!

DAY 13

And on this day, I unwrapped a spectacular Day of the Dead owl stuffie!!!!  She is too fabulous for words!!!

Just look at that face!

We bonded instantly and she has taken a perch on my mantel where she will help keep the cat in line.  (Loch has gotten a little uppity now that he has been immortalized in pillow form.  He struts around like a little dictator!)
Thank you so much for absolutely everything, Glamis!!!!  The amount of work and care you put into this gorgeous owl and all the wonderful goodies in my package is unbelievable and much appreciated.  I will continue to work on my crochet skills and if we are ever partners again, perhaps I'll be ready to share with a crafter of your abilities!!   Wink
Thank you again!

First, a photo of the whole lot from lindyv321!

Second, I must show the adorable card she sent!  It's a cut out skeleton.  This will be on the wall in my room, year round, more than likely.  So cute!

Lindy only labeled the Day 1 item, so I get to pick what to open each day!  AWESOME! Smiley

Day 1.
I got a 3D wooden tree!  I've always loved these, but have never gotten one.  It's black and glittery and she sent ornaments and garland to decorate it.

I wanted to get a close up of the little ornaments which I believe she made, because I love them so much!

The raven kills me, it's so cute!

Day 2.
This banner is awesome!  I don't do many paper crafts, but this makes me want to.  I have the perfect place to hang this over the cabinets in my kitchen!

Day 3.
Well, it's 5:30am on day 3, and I can't sleep...SO I COULDN'T HELP MYSELF!!!  Somehow, I opened the PERFECT package for insomnia!  An awesome anatomy book with some great stock images, some adorable cardboard decorative shapes, a science fiction magazine cut out (which is going on my inspiration wall as soon as I finish posting), and the BEST THING EVER!  A book of zombie feltie patterns!!!  I've already flipped through it, and I want to make them all! Smiley

Day 4.
This is possibly the most awesome thing I have ever seen!!!  I got a totally amazing shrine!!!  I'm so glad this survived shipping!!!  It's my favorite Halloween thing that I have at the moment!

Every little room is so perfect!  I love the skeleton guy...and I adore the gargoyle bead!!

oh and the angry women on the bottom are great!
She also sent a little shrine kit....with a skeleton which I already put together!!

Day 5.
A present for my little man!!!  It was wrapped up so lovely.

A beautiful little no sew blanket!  Orange on one side, black on the other.  He loves it, btw!

Day 6.
I got some great spooky embellishments, a little pumpkin clothespin, a super cute necklace, and some beautiful pumpkin earrings, which I am wearing right now!  There was a pumpkin candle in the box as extra, so I pulled that out too!  I wanted my house to smell delicious!  Smiley

Here's the necklace and earrings a little closer....so wonderful!

Day 7.
Today, I got a little Halloween sign, a BOO tiny clothespin, and a super adorable key chain!!!

The bat is so cute, I can't stand it! Smiley

I can't wait to put it to use!  I love everything so much, so far!!  I can only imagine what's in store for the next six days!!!! >-<

Day 8.
I found some amazing bottles for 1000 year old gargoyle drool and bottled ghosts!!  So awesome!

Day 9.
Some adorable supplies to make delicious Halloween goodies!!! Smiley

Day 10.
The most beautiful wrap bracelets ever!!

I can't take them off!

The caldron is my favorite part.
Also, there was an adorable skeleton necklace, two squishy rats, and a little spider clothespin!!

Day 11.
I found some super cute trim/ribbon, some awesome bone erasers(which I collect funny shaped erasers! win!), and a beautifully put together little book!

Here's the inside:

It looks so good next to the shrine...and I cannot get enough of those little dapper gentleman skeletons!!  They are just the best.

Day 12.
I got a great little lot of things!!  Some Halloween dcor tape, super cute stickers, and fun staches!!!  Which is too great, because I have an obsession with putting sticker mustaches on my son, or drawing a mustache on my finger and taking pictures with it under his nose...SO THIS IS PERFECT!! Smiley

Some awesome zombies were sent along with the package, which are already hanging up in my window, which perfectly enough, is zombie themed!

and my favorite part are these holographic pictures.  I've always wanted some of these, but have never gotten them, mostly because I can never find one that is actually more spooky than corny...but these are definitely spooky and not corny at all!!!  They are going straight on the wall!  (and staying up year round like most of these awesome things Lindy has graced me with! Smiley)



I can't believe tomorrow is the last day!  I'm not sad....I'm not sad.....errrr....."mini -we can't get enough 13 days of Halloween - December edition", anyone?Huh  Haha.

Day 13.
For the last day, I received a beautiful hoopla!

and some awesome double sided postcard type things.  Smiley

other side:

The end is bittersweet, but I love everything so much.  THANK YOU, LINDY!!!  Can't wait for next year!.  <3

My spooky spectacular space!

I received from Ffrogg yesterday.  Sorry, I didn't take a pic of how pretty she wrapped everything.  Each package has a cute little saying on it.  I was a good girl, and waited till today to open.  I made myself wait until I got my morning chores done 1st.  

1st up: AWESOME stitchery!!!!  I'm going to put this in my studio, so it will stay out all year long.  How did you know that I actually do have night mares almost every night Ffrogg?  Smiley  It says: I am the Shadow on the moon at night   Filling your Dreams to the brim with fright.  
2nd Day: I saw the orange ball poking out of the top of the package.  So, that's why I chose to open it today.  As soon as I saw the white part, I knew it had to be Zero!!!  And, it was!!!  Ffrogg sent me more than 13 packages, so I took the awesome Halloween bag out of the box too!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything!!!  Thank you so much Ffrogg!!

Day 3: Don't let the outside of the box fool you!  When you open it, there is an adorable miniature witch's living room!  Soo, soo, soo cute!

Day 4: Awesome, loooong bunting!!!  I had to switch which wall I was going to hang it on, because the previously chosen wall was not long enough!  Fun candy corn socks!  I LOVE fun socks!  And, beautiful Halloween fabric.  I needed to refresh my Halloween fabric supply.

Day 5: Bootiful painted/decoupaged paper mache letters that spell out B O O.  

Day 6: A beautiful earthen ware mug that I plan on drinking my coffee and hot apple cider out of.  I even love the colors, because I consider myself a, "close to the earth" kind of girl.  Smiley

Day 7: An adorable crocheted frog and a mini palm reading book.  I plan on putting the frog in my studio after Halloween.  

Day 8: 2 spooktacular plaques.  I love the vintage look of both of them.

Day 9: 5 delicious Halloween themed fat quarters!  Raggy quilt, here I come!

Day 10: The cutest crocheted pumpkin zippered pouch!  The zipper even has a clay leaf on it!

Day 11: Wonderful smelling apple bath bombs, that are the BOMB!

Day 12: A fun coffin.  It even has a vile of blood!  The little bat hanging upside down is my favorite part!

Day 13: Boo hoo, the last day!  A Day of the Dead Sugar Skull.  I got one in a Day of the Dead swap, and they look wonderful together!  Thank you so much Ffrogg for making my Halloween spooktacular!

My Halloween Gallery of goodies from michelleandbean

Here's everything (except for day 6 which is in a separate box that has not yet arrived despite being mailed the same day as the other box. Darnit, USPS!)

~*~ Day 1 ~*~

Yum, yum, yum!! All pineapple goodies. Pineapple jelly, pineapple gummies (in a hysterical "specimen" bag!), pineapple lip balm and pineapple gummy bears! Pineapple is my all-time favorite but since I hate coconut, it's nearly impossible to find JUST pineapple things. Yay!! I've already sampled the gummy bears and they're quite good! Grin

~*~ Day 2 ~*~

Awesome bat shadowbox! It has a bat flying by a full moon, a spooky tree and mossy ground. Love it! Grin

~*~ Day 3 ~*~

Two glass potion bottles! "Wool of Bat" and "Grounded Bones." The kitty is little Ginger who literally would not let me take a photo without her "help." Wink

~*~ Day 4 ~*~

Adorable Mickey Ear fleece pillows in orange and black and Mickey Ear banner in black and orange. So cute! (I am a massive Disney fan so this is great.)

~*~ Day 5 ~*~

Framed bat art. I love the ornate frame on this!

~*~ Day 6 ~*~

An awesome black and orange ornament wreath! So festive!!

~*~ Day 7 ~*~

A cute felt owl and a neat ceramic owl. The ceramic one opens and is hollow inside so he can hold things.

~*~ Day 8 ~*~

A basket full of pumpkins! I've artfully spilled them out so you can see them here but they all fit nicely in the basket to make it full.

~*~ Day 9 ~*~

Cat day! There was a "crinkle mat" which has an orange full moon and bats on it and it's fuzzy with a crinkly center so when the cats lay on it, it makes noise. Ginger was quite taken by it which is why I couldn't get a shot withOUT her on it! Also, four felt cat toys; Mickey Ears, Bat, Mouse, Fish. I also could not get a photo without Ginger's "help" in testing them out. Plus, Mika and Gracie wanted to play too.

~*~ Day 10 ~*~

A really lovely little bag in a fun orange/red/yellow fabric with a elastic button closure. Fully lined with a little pocket inside too.

~*~ Day 11 ~*~

6 crochet washcloths (2 each, black, orange, white) plus Halloween cupcake liners and Halloween cookie cutters!

~*~ Day 12 ~*~

A really pretty rose barrette, a skeleton key, steampunky gear necklace and earrings, lock and key earrings and ring that looks like it was made from an extremely detailed old button.

~*~ Day 13 ~*~

An awesome stitched "Tomb Sweet Tomb" sign! (It's from Haunted Mansion ride at Disney.)

Yay! What an awesome swap. I had SO much fun and the range of items were so very thoughtful and creative. Thank you, michelleandbean for an excellent swap!!

My fabulously fantastic QueenNinjaMonkey awesomeness:

Day 1/13/whatever:  WOO CANDY CORN

Seriously.. I love candy corn enough that it is probably considered illegal in several southern states.  And Starburst candy corn is the best!  Woo!  Terraria and candy corn has been my agenda all evening.. lol


These completely adorable pillows with painted zombie silhouettes on the front and cool skull fabric on the back.  So so awesome!

Day 3!!

Wee felt ornaments!  SO so so cute.  They make me ridiculously happy.  Also, candy corn duct tape! <3

Day 4!!

This poor adorable candy corn zombie hoop.  I think it's needle punched?  It's thick and awesome and bumpy.  

It looks fantastic on my "favorites" wall, too! Cheesy

Day 5!!

More zombie felties!  Squeeeee!!  And a Zombie Apocalypse book that my 16-year-old shockingly stole.  Double bonus!

I bought this glittery halloween tree last year to use in my craft booth, but my ornament production outgrew it pretty quick, so it's been sitting on top of a shelf looking fancy but bare.  Bare no longer!

Day 6!

This day proves that Madame Ninja Monkey is a psychic.   First, socks!  I love weird socks, and my candy corn socks are tied for favorites with the eyeball socks and the striped socks.  But now candy corn striped socks?  winner!

The coasters are awesome with foam skeleton feet, but, most importantly, they have Chris Mars paintings on them, and he is one of my favorite artists of all time.

The kicker: I didn't tell her I loved both of these things, so she must be psychic!!

Day 7!!

Holy crap it's a soap skeleton!  I didnt even know this skeleton mold existed.  I am so excited to be washing my hands with a bony foot. Cheesy

Day 8!

A pile of fun stuff!  An adorable candy corn (wheee!), a light up lantern, and some monster pills that I might be nice and share with my kids. Wink

Day 9!

OMG MORE FELTIES.  I don't know how I lived my life without these things in it, for real.  I have looked at my little zombie tree 197591875 times over the last week.  SO FREAKIN CUTE.

Day 10!

and even more!!!  I don't want to ramble on like a maniac any more than I already have, so suffice to say they are fantastic.  Love love love.  Plus another zombie book!

Day 11!!

This cool spidery book box!  I have always wanted a book box, and I always need storage, so even more awesome.

Inside I found magnets and cool vintage postcards!

I can't believe there are only two days left! Ack!

Day 12!

This super awesome skully shirt!  I am so excited about this thing!

day 13!  waHHHH

This beautiful Halloween shrine.  I have hung it already in a place of honor - I absolutely adore it.

Thank you so much for everything, QNM!!  You were the best partner ever.

My wrapped loot from GrannysAnnie- all purple and lime green  Grin

My card- it's Sooper Skeritly a Doctor Who thing, I'm sure, because it's a Van Gogh and that was one of my favourite eps, and it says SPOILERS!! inside, like River always tells 11.

Day 13- a anatomical heart! Now me and my girlfriend both have one (it's a in-joke about our relationship) Cheesy

After a quick conversation we've figured out our crossed wires and I am to be opening counting up instead of down. So I give you...Day 1- candy I've never seen before!

Day 2- Lock Shock and Lipgloss! It's a pretty red colour with the lid off.

Day 3- a bunch of stickers

Day 4- A slit throat choker in zombie green! (I only have like 4 zombie shirts to pair it with  Cheesy )

Day 5- supplies. I've never seen marble painted chain like this. I already know what I'm doing with the black and white one.

Day 6- orange-lime bubble bath. I literally can't think of two smells I love more than orange and lime, so this is FANTASTIC.

Day 7- orange bath salts

Day 8- a slit wrists and throat set (only took a picture of the wrist, since the throat looks the same as the zombie one)

Day 9- I really reeeeeally wanted a bat necklace, and after a few failed attempts to make one, GrannysAnnie bought me one. Thanks for making sure I got one!

Day 10- A TARDIS, that, when you open....is full of zombie Doctors!

Day 11- a block of fall themed scrapbook paper. Here are some examples:

Day 12- Saw magnets! These are so gory cool, they instantly make me want to rewatch the movies.

My gallery of gory goodies!  Grin

On the first day of Halloween Lo{ve} sent to me:

A bunch of Halloween candy! A delightful mix of twix, 3 musketeers, snickers, and milky ways. Alas, the people in my household ran off with the goods before I could snap a pic.

On the second day of Halloween:

A set of lovely Halloween bookmarks! I still read REAL books (shocking I know) and can always use another bookmark. They are so cute and well made. Jealous of Lo{ve}'s sewing skills already!

On the third day of Halloween:

Supply day! A bunch of Fall/Halloween buttons!

Halloween baking supplies!

Cutest spatula ever!
