I got my fantastic can from carnabystreet!!!! I know we're having can overhaul right now- and I wanted to say before I post my goodies, that I think all the cans are so great and I love to think of all that fun stuff fitting into one can! LOVE LOVE LOVE! Ok, on with MY goods:

group shot:

best shot I could get of shrinky-dink pin-up necklace:

My two new friends (still no names) but they are my amazing bone and zombie(ish) rag-doll bears:

Close up of my halloween necklaces, awesome shrinky-dink cat girl and a Buffy key cain for my mom!

This was such a fun swap and this has been such a great package! Carnabystreet, if you want to post better pictures of the shrinky's or whatever- please do! I tried, but it didn't really work as well as I hoped. Anyway THANKS AGAIN!!!

Hate to double post, but I just wanted to add that the can was pained black and then covered with a black knit or crochet "web" for the little white spider... and the little bag of white bone confetti is hand made I think... AND I got some cute little spiders and awesome lollipops with arm bones as handles!...I think that's it, I didn't want to leave anything out!  Roll Eyes

I haven't really commented on anything yet, holy cow what was I thinking!  Anyway I love the paper mache boot. The spider pinkleo received is great.  It would look great on a witch hat  Smiley  You guys all did such a great job.  Oh and the zombie baby - great idea.  So much cool stuff I know I'm missing . . .

First, here is the can and an awesome cloth with frankenstein it was wrapped in (The can looks way cuter in person, everything is all 3-D and pops off of the can)

The Crafted items, including cute spider hair clips, awesome vintage horror flick magnets (including a scene from Young Frankenstein!), and awesome candy corn charms (stitch markers, i think?)

And a bag of candy corn carefully guarded by a zombie bird (evil birds...lol) and a cute bat (one of his ears fell off, i might reattach it but it might make him look eviler without it lol)

I am so glad that you liked everything!!!
That Frankenstein is a tea towel- it has a little loop on the back to hang on a hook.

The candy corns are stitch markers for crochet- the letters are to help you remember what hook you used for a project( I have a habit of stopping in the middle of a project and then forgetting what hook I was using)

I am so bummed that the bat lost one of it's ears- I was kind of worried that they would be smooshed by the candy corn. But this way it has lots of personality Grin

I received the goods from punk rock puppy.

The can! decorated with scrapbook-type paper and dia de los muertos skull. Why is this picture acting stupid?

A really nice candy corn necklace and stamp, eraser and a great napkin! 

A wrist warmer that I love and just a few of the many many cute spider rigs and I look like I have jaundice.

I got LOTS of these awesome magnets. Jeez, the girl must have used everything I wrote in my questionnaire!

A bad picture, but my favorite part- dia de los muertos hair sticks! I just stuck them in there to show them off... really nicely painted!

Muchas gracias!

I'm obsessing about costumes as well! I'm getting antsy b/c I haven't bought the fabric for my costumes yet, much less started sewing them. Also, my sis is sewing costumes for her kids (2 girls, 1 boy) and instead of letting me make accessories, she keeps buying them off ebay and its driving me MAAADD!!!  Roll Eyes  Tongue  Grin

Have I mentioned lately how awesome everyone's stuff is?!? Especially the shot glas *ahem* I mean, petite drinking glasses.  Wink Those are so awesome I could only manage sad little strangled noises for, like, a good 2 min. LOL.
