Happy Day!!  Happy day!!  I received from cigarettesandvalentines today!

NOTE:  I had to take the pics outside cuz of this weird camera that loves to oversaturate everything in our cave lighting.

Unopened box - It was the most difficult picture to take.  All three of us (me, mom, and daughter) hovered over it while the camera charged.  Smiley

The first thing I pulled out was a letter and the awesome Alexander Henryvintagey jol/black cat fabric piece.  It's bigger/wider than the pic is.  We're talking about making a couple trick-or-treat bags for the kids to use.  That is, if I can muster the courage to cut it up.  I just love it like it is!  Would it be wrong to just frame and hang it?  Smiley

Then it was straight on to the can!

The really cool decoupaged can with the vintage witch!

Now here is where it starts to get creepy.

Wax fangs - My daughter saw some pics online of people wearing these while I was surfing for ideas for this swap.  After I had to explained why the folks in the pics looked so strange, she immediately wanted a pair.  Well, we live out here in the sticks where not one store carries them.  Of course, my luck.  So, YAY!!!  She was thrilled!  We got some!!!  How did she know?!

Next, it gets even creepier.  I pull out this:

A gorgeous reticle bag embroidered with a cobweb pattern that is perfect.  My mom immediately snatched it from my hands before I could even open it!  She has been wanting a bag to carry favors in for the renaissance fair and this is the perfect color for her outfit.  NO WAY she's gettin' it!  It's MINE!!  It is just the coolest thing.

And, there is cool stuff inside!

A skeleton "monkey paw" barrette, shrinky dink magnet shepherdess/witch, and a beautiful key necklace!

Lots of other stuff in the box and can:

Shrinky Dink Skeleton Bookmark - so much detail on it!

All items together - and there was a lot of them!

There was a cat cookie cutter, pencils, plastic spider/bat/skull rings, buttons, a cute owl notebook (not pictured cuz daughter took it), 2 more skeleton hands, confetti, and CANDY!!  Lots of CANDY!!  Muhuhaha!!!  Tootsie Pops, Smarties and Pop Rocks (not pictured)

Thanks you oodles, cigarettesandvalentines!!  Hope I didn't forget anything.  It is the best swap package!  My most favorite of them all so far cuz it's for me.  Hehe.  The necklace and bag are definitely going to be accessories for my witch costume.  The bag will get lots of use at faire, as well.  Can't thank you enough.

I'm so glad you (and your daughter!) liked everything!

That fabric's quite nutty, but I figured you'd find something fun to do with it Cheesy

Hey Tazzell -- shall I make more barrettes? I can!  Wink  They were fun, but I was afraid no one in your home would need them, so I only did the two.   (Thanks for giving me an excuse to try needle felting, by the way!  Grin )

I'm going to post one picture, just to prove that (excluding candy) almost everything really COULD fit into the Pringle's can -- and this was BEFORE I was forced to remove the medicinals:

I'm dying to know if the Doctor Who glows at all -- it has a small amount of glow-in-the-dark paint swirled into it....  Wink

These cans keep on being amazing! I cannot even begin to express how many neat ideas I've gotten and am planning to try out after I get back from my honeymoon. Cheesy (I'm not on it now, but I will be starting on the 10th)

All the vintage goodies are just fabulous! I'm covetting that fabric right now, and wishing I had at least a scrap. It's SO COOL.

I wisted the heck out of this gallery.  There are a lot of really awesome crafts!  I think that one of my favorite parts (besides crafting) would be getting to eat the pringles.  I had a photoshoot with doughnuts and it was the perfect excuse to eat them up.  The "genuine chupacabra" pouch reminded me of a Futurama episode where Bender adopts all those kids and then tries to sell them...  "Purebred human.  No vampire in there."

I am interested in Halloween Rinchies to make bottle cap magnets.
