The GOODS from Psyche!  (She came up with such cool themes for each day... clever girl!)

Day 13!

BAGGED & TAGGED!  A fabulous project bag with lots of lovely pockets, and a NOTEBOOK FROM THE CORONER'S OFFICE (I'm just a little excited about that) with a lovely Skully postcard!  (I'm feeling overly spoiled and unworthy right about now)

Day 12!

JEEPERS CREEPERS!  Swanky felted eyeball garland (by another craftster member), an ooooooooooey goooooey eyeball magnet (by "evil Zed"), and a super creepy card (I love those postmortem Victorian portraits).  

Day 11!

TRICK OR TREAT!  Freaky Canadian candy!! Wink heheheeeee  Actually... you know.. eyeball rings.. gummy skulls... COFFEE CRISP.. it's like you KNOW me or something!  Awesome!  That freaky gnome is today's card.  Doesn't it look like it wants to eat you?  Or it's about to eat that squirrel...

Day 10!


Alas, Poor Yorick...  This awesomely decorated black skull arrived, lovingly enclosed in a sweet drawstring bag (love love love the lining color)... I happened to have 12 shiftless skully minions looking for an evil overlord, so they naturally migrated RIGHT to him.  Wink

DAY 9!

"Tales from the Crypt":  A killer stripey fabric-covered journal (I'm a sucker for black and white stripes), two kickin' bookmarks (I'm currently dog-earing my copy of "Dangerous Dames", so it will probably thank you for the bookmarks), and a copy of Dime Store Magic, a totally awesome book!  (I actually have almost every book that Kelley Armstrong has written, so I DO have this one, but I'll still make good use of it!! Cheesy)  I neglected to take a picture of the card, but it had a picture of Gossip on it, which is one of the coolest fool the eye paintings ever.

Day 8!

Little Monsters!  Crafty goodies for my little monsters... They divvied it up and took off.. LOL  I don't know how the youngest escaped the excitement, but she's nowhere to be found in this picture.  They were really excited and all said "THANK YOU PSYCHE!!!" Wink

Day 7!!

Witchcraft!  An AWESOME crochet hook holder in skullfinity fabric and a cute little pincushion!  I needed a hook holder SO bad, and I'm totally on an organization kick this week, building shelves and making a general mess of things, so this will SO come in handy!

Day 6!!

Wrist Bones!!  Three insanely awesome bracelets.. a bamboo bangle that looks like bones, polyclay beads with painted-on bones, and a stretchy skully bracelet!!  The hubbs came home from work and said, 'you've got a bunch of stuff on your wrist' all confused-like.  ha!

Day 5!

Batwings on things!!  HEE!  I have this weird obsession with random objects with batwings (one of my favorite ATCs is a lava lamp with bat wings.. lol!)  So we have three cherub magnets with little batwings and two batty votive holders (The candles smell awesome, Psyche, orange or not!! Wink)

Excuse my weirdo art in the background.  I swear, that was the ONLY clean spot on this table.

Day 4!!

Tentacular Spectacular!!! (I love that you used the word "tentacular".. I actually use it a lot. lol!!)  This awesome tentacled shirt inspired by my wist (excuse the crummy action shot, but I HAD to wear it IMMEDIATELY) and a super creepy gummy tentacle!  It's friggin' huge!

Day 3!!

Pretty Scary!  Three handmade lip balms (Toxic Waste, Vampire's Kiss, and Vanilla Spice) and this funky chunky ring (it fits perfectly!! I have little fingers..lol!).  The lip balms were so professionally packaged, SUPER impressed!!

Psyche has sent me the most awesome cards with all of these, and I keep forgetting to put them in the picture.  I especially loved today's pinup with monkey helper. Wink

Day 2!!!

(I totally went on a mass trashing spree and threw away the envelopes, so I lost the clever titles.  Man I'm an idiot) ... JACK ORNAMENTS!!!!  Hand-painted by Psyche herself!!  SO Awesome.  My kids think you're a goddess.  They're sort of Jack-obsessed. Wink


DAY 1!!!

An awesomely cute little polyclay brain pendant, and a zombie graveyard felt play mat!!  Druzie attacked it immediately and played with it for a solid 20 minutes, which is HUGE in almost-2-year-old land. 

THANK YOU psyche!!!  I adore everything, thanks for making my first swap so awesome!!!

Psyche, you rock!

Day one I got a great bag filled with candy...  It had an cool tag on it that I am going to use on a necklace ... and all this candy   including my favorite now or latters!!!

Day two was a great scarf that I am going to use at work to keep me warm... Its perfect for me with the wiggle eyes on it since I am known for covering peoples desks with 100's of eyes cut out from magazine with sayings like we've got our eye on you...Exscuse the ugly pic of me my boyfriend does not take good pictures and it has been a long day.

Day three was a Jacpot for me, I recieved A very cool Devil duck eraser (I talk about devil ducks at least once a day, a witch/ cat, a mummy and wizard dimensional stickers, very cute tags , A round notebook and two rubber stamps. All of which I plan to use to Scrapbook!

Day four was filled with all kinds of halloween goodness, I recieved some blood gels, a cat and spider vinly stickers, a hair clip and button, and a very cool patch.

Another Great day! Day five...

I got pretties!!!... Day 6

Some great pieces of jewlery... My favorite was the paisley with skeleton piece. I am think about wearing the squiggle ring to work tonight. Great pieces that Photo's don't do justice.

Day 7 I got some great magnets that are living on my fridge right now. A wine glass, a drink cozy and black cat stirring sticks

Day 8 is all about the baking... Baking cups, Cookie cutters and an awesome baking pan.

Day 9 was a monster of a day... A MONSTER PILLOW!! His name is Phil. (I don't know why)

Phil came wrapped in this...

Which I might sew up tonight so I can wear it to work Tommorow.

Day 10 Was a Awesome pillow thats going to live in my bed... I love this Fabric.

I claim this space in the name of the Nautilus*! I can do that... I have a flag!

OK so I don't get home and stuff till close to 11:30 pm EST so I'll be a touch late in posting pics. With that said, here are the pics:

DAY 1:

First we have the box as it looked when I opened it... severed arm and all! :-)

Here we have the package minus the arm:

What did I find when I opened the package? See for your selves:

The front:

and the back:

After I unpacked the tote, Zero side:

Unpacked Jack and Sally side:

I LOVE THE TOTE! Thank you Sylvie!!

DAY 2:

On day 2 I got a wonderful Sugar Skull Ornament!

The Skull spins in the ornament and it's really cool! Sorry for the craptastic pictures, but the best pictures were with the flash. I couldn't get a pic without the glare.

The front of the Skull:

The back:

DAY 3:

Candy Corn and chapstick!

DAY 4:

Hair Clips! They are awesome! And considering I have 3 1/2 feet of hair they will come in handy on Halloween.

DAY 5:

Chocolate! A yummy looking chocolate maple leaf!

Day 6:

MOUSIES!! For my cats! They LOVE these!

As you can see there is a little Terrorist Mousie, and a Pirate mousie! One of my cats has the nick name of My Little Terrorist(tm) for two reasons, one when I first got him he had ummmm intestinal issues and could clear out a room, I was pretty sure I'd found the WMDs... they were in my cat, he is also the most destructive cat I've ever owned. Really. It's a very good thing he's cute and lovable, cause he's not all that graceful. The other is My Little Pirate(tm) cause she likes to steal my stuff.

DAY 7:

Pirate earrings!

They are awesome! Hee!

DAY 8:

A Bat Necklace!

Sylvie, I don't like this... I LOVE IT!!! It's Gorgeous! I'm going to be wearing it to work tomorrow/today!

DAY 9:

A zombie feotus kit!!

A grow skeleton and a label for zombie foetus poison... the cat has stolen the highlighter, I'll have to fish it out.

The label:

I have every intention of putting the skeleton in a gallon jug with a spigot and keeping it on my bar.

DAY 10:

A gorgeous picture, really, please excuse my craptastic pics, it is MUCH nicer in person. I couldn't get a pic without the glare.

DAY 11:

Candle and awesome candle holders!

DAY 12:
 An Edward Gorey Box! I love it!

DAY 13:

Vampire Stuff!!

A set of fake fangs, a fang necklace and candy blood!

I thought this was hysterical, I can't say any more till Sylvie opens/posts her stuff.

*gamer reference, pathetic as that is. Me = geek

Psyche's Gallery - From TheMuppet

The packages!

Little Extras

Day 1 - an awesome spiderweb bag!

Day 2 - Mixed Media Piece called "Undead Elegance" - I'm surprised I got a half decent photo due to the glitter and shine! It's going to befriend the "chunky house" I got in another swap.

Day 3 - "Tricks and Treats". The treats: a big pile of 100 grand Bars... which I may have mentioned are my favourite chocolate bar but they don't sell them here in Canada. Wink

The tricks: An assorted number of cool minty type things. Can't wait to try the absinthe ones, and I really hope the "garlic mints" aren't ACTUALLY garlic flavoured. Eew! Then again, the zombie ones say they're brain flavoured! Plus, a "fortune telling fish", which my sister and I have had endless fun with already.

Day 4 - The True Blood soundtrack. A solid Louisiana soundtrack (I think - I get to go see New Orleans first hand on Tuesday!), from one of my favourite shows.

Day 5 - Happy Poo! With Halloween costume of tie-on horns. The funny thing is, I had a happy poo on my wists and received this one and another one in swaps at the same time. But don't worry - they're different sizes and have different facial expressions, so they're going to be friends. Lol.

Day 6 - Ooh. DomiKNITrix knitting book! "For the permanent beginner knitter", the note from themuppet read. Awww. (That's what I described myself as in my questionniare). I loooove craft books, and this was actually one on my wishlist. Interesting pattern ideas, and a lot more of the basic how-to stuff, which I definitely can use more of.

Day 7 - Skull topped knitting needles! From my wists again. Kind of goes along with Day 6 - I've been planning that after Halloween I'm going to start a quicker-gratification project where I can actually get something made for myself (rather than the big bag I've been working on for 1.5 years), and now I want to find one that fits these needles! Hm... maybe I could look in my new knitting book. Wink

Day 8 - 2 T-Shirts. Not handmade, but both very cool. "I Bite", and "In the event of a zombie uprising, remember to sever the head" (good advice). Can't wait to wear them. (And they do fit!)

Day 9 - Okay, I opened it about an hour early so I didn't have to rush & take pics before getting on the plane tomorrow. It's.... pajama pants! Really lame action shot: (they fit perfectly though)

And a close-up of the slightly fleecy, skulls of kings sort of fabric

Day 10 - An amazing hanging Victorian gothic necklace.

Close-up of the zombie girl. Can you believe themuppet painted this? (Not to mention made the whole charm out of polymer clay!)

Day 11 - for the boyfriend - a Dawn of the Dead statue, the Hare Krishna Zombie! He LOVES it. He commented on what a good choice it was.

Thanks from zombie boyfriend! (We forgot to get him HOLDING the statue in his costume, but ah well).

Day 12 - Spooky flash drive! Very hadny. I needed another one, and she spotted a squd one on my wists and made this skully, spiky version. Nice!

Day 13
 - A skinny scarf, in most of my favourite colours! The yarn is also hand-dyed, which made this such a BIG gift!

And a close-up of the colouring:

Thanks, themuppet, it was great swapping with you!

Day 2 I AM IN LOVE!  I received three pumpkins!  I LOVE THEM.... they have found a home at the table in front of my front door..... Also some Peeps (it's pumpkin day! Smiley ) and an unpainted witch ornament that will be so much fun to do!!!!  I also received a great black reusable bag..... cool skull and crossbones....

Day 3... how cool are these?  Totally fun!

What was inside the boxes...two great necklaces! One made from a domino and one with a saucy little charm and a ribbon cord. I really like both of them so much! Gonna wear the saucy lil necklace today....if you cannot see the charm clear enough it looks like a demon wrapping himself around a nakey girl...hehe
