Hooray! Finally got to open my box:

All the packages (she promised me no. 2,3 and 4 hide in parcel no. 1 Grin):

And here is my awesome Day 1 bag.
It is coffin shaped and has a totally neat embroidery on it. How cool is that!

look at all the tiny stitches:

I really wonder how/if it can get better... Wink

On Day 2 I got:

a bag"for make-up, bats wings, ravens beak, zombie parts or anything else you might choose"
it is so well made and has a lining and a lace detail

and i love this detail on it:

So that was in m Day 3 package:

A slit throat choker direct from my wist! It is literally a choker because it is a bit tight but should be no problem to widen it.

On Day 4 I found a pair of coordinating slashed wrist bracelets. Bf hates them. He has such a crappy taste! Undecided
Wore them all day!

Day 5 were two cleaver hair clips. What a cool idea to crochet these! Love the felt blood  Grin

catching up with posting pics

On Day 6 I opened a crocheted top hat on a circlet with cute ribbons and lace around the top (can't really see it in the pic)

The next day, Day 7 held a foam rubber zombie warning sign and a zombie blood vessel necklace. Bf likes the necklace. Hooray!

Day8 surprised me with a crocheted voodoo keychain with zombie finger lip gloss holder and yummy raspberry chap stick. I have yet not found out who that voodoo amigurumi works for... Huh Grin

On Day 9 I received a whole loot of mouth watering candy: gummies, chocolate, fuzzy dip and two skull pez dispensers. Lots of it already in m tummy. Tasty!

Here is what I unwrapped on Day 10: Awesome Halloween party kit: black cat chocolate mould, skull & spider cookie cutter, cookie decorating kit, black food colouring and spider cupcake picks. They will be so perfect for my Halloween belated birthday party (my birthday is not on the 31th) and stuff like that is almost unavailable here

The party supplies continued on Day 11: dead duck bunting (from the zombie felties book)
I am very happy that I now have a bunting of my own cause I fancied  all the other ones on the swap.

Here is a close up of one of the duckies. I can figure out that the red should be blood but I am too stupid to say what the white parts and the black beads are supposed to be...

Day 12 provided me with items for a cold Autumn day. Funny thing is that I wanted to go to the cit to get some fingerless gloves esterday and then- there were some pretty ones in my package!! Plus glow sticks and a candle that looks a bit NBC. I am going to use it to my party today

The last day came way to fast   Cry But to make me happy again I received a lovely zombie pin-up embroidery on awesome green fabric. This went straight to my wall! Love her red hair.

Thank you so much anachronism for this wonderful swap and all the cute, neat and fantastic items I received. I can't wait to join the swap next year. Now I am going to enjoy m loot again Cheesy

Day 13!

The bags:

The pencils and stickers were unwrapped in the coffin, so I decided to claim them today!

The packages:

The pile of nearly wrapped packages is now sitting on my coffee table to taunt me for the next 13 days.  Wink

Day 12!

An adorable strand of skulls, straight from my wists!  I apologize for the crummy picture -- the kitchen was the only (semi)neat place I could take a picture of them stretched out -- they are even cuter in person, and are decorating the area above my desk right now.

And here is a close-up of one of the skulls, to show how much personality the little guys have:

Day 11!

Today I got....

a wonderful pumpkin scented candle AND a package of caffeine free pumpkin pie loose tea!  It'll be nice to be able to enjoy pumpkin-y tea in the evenings now. :-)

Day 10!

An adorable wooden coffin (lined in purple!) filled with pumpkin charms!  I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them yet, but they are darling!

Day 9!

An adorably creepy pumpkin surrounded by black and white tentacles!  I apologize for the crummy picture -- trying to take photos at night has proven challenging, and I wanted to get it up here as quickly as I could!

Day 8!

A pumpkin shaped book of Halloween goodness!

The front cover:

A sample from the interior:

Day 7!

A really fun Halloween frame!

Day 6!

Some adorable Halloween ornaments!  I don't have a Halloween tree (though clearly I should), so for now they are hanging from my kitchen cabinets.

Day 5!

A pair of adorable Alice in Wonderland in Halloween ATCs!  I really need to find a good way to display ATCs.... I don't want to just put these in a box with the others!!!

Day 4!

Candy day!  Two great big bags of Starbursts for me to enjoy.

Day 3!

Two adorable pumpkin picture holders!  Sculpey is my crafting kryptonite, so I am super impressed by these, and by the tentacle pumpkin earlier!

Day 2!

An adorable hanging witch plus two pumpkin dish towels!  These rock, since my current Halloween dish towels are in the process of falling apart.  Very sad, that.

Day 1!

A plethora of fun Halloween notecards!  I shall have to send a few of these out next year, but only to people I really like.   Wink

And here is my favorite, proudly displayed by a pumpkin picture holder!

Thank you so much, H00lie, for a fabulous swap!

From the talented and wonderful Ffrogg526.

Day 1-Bag (knit? crochet?) with candy corn lining.

Day 2-Gummy candy. There was slightly more candy in these bags when they arrived.

Day 3- Two little (polymer clay?) monsters. Little Bean loves them.

Day 4-Black cat window clings. I swear there was another smaller bat, but I can't find it anywhere.

Day 5-Coffin that has a creepy laugh when you open it.

Day 6-Hanging latern. I tried to get an action shot, but it was having none of it.

Day-7-Shrinky Dink stitch markers.

Day 8-Halloween socks. I love socks. I really really love Halloween socks. These have been on my wist for a while.

Action shot on these. I forgot and wore them before I took pictures.

Day 9-Candy corn zippered pouch. It had Halloween stamps in it. Perfect day to open it. I need a zippered pouch tomorrow. Now I don't have to make one.

Day 10-I recieved an awesome Halloween themed Altoid tin. I've wanted one of these. Now I have to find something I want to store in it.

The side view.

Day 11-Knitting book. I might have mixed this up with day 12. It has a pattern for cute Halloween scarf.

Scarf pictures inside.

Little Bean picked this up and threw it at my head. The corner of the spine caught me right in my fivehead forehead. It's still sore and I have a bruise. After that there was lots of yelling (by me) and lots of crying (by him.)

Day 12-Polymer picture frame. I'll have to print out one of Little Bean's Halloween pictures to go in it.



Thank you Ffrogg526 for being such a great partner. I loved everything.

Day 12
A cute dangly crochet spider.

Day 11
Charlie Brown fridge pads!

Day 10
A beanie   Cheesy

Day 9
I got some wicked awesome stuff today.  There are bottle labels so I can make my everyday bottled goods Halloween concoctions.  I've wanted some of these for awhile!

I also got a cool picture print.  I'm not sure how I'm going to display this, but it will go up.

 Day 8
this was candy day.  I got a cool calendar and some nerds.  I'm not a fan of nerds, but my co-workers love them so I got to do reverse trick or treating at work today Smiley

Day 7
a knitted pumpkin

Day 6
Skull earrings

I still don't have a costume so the necklace and earrings may be part of whatever I decide on.

Day 5
A skull necklace.

Day 4
A knitted bag

with the next 2 days inside Smiley

Day 3
A book of spooky stories - I didn't have time to take any pics of the inside, had to leave for work.  I'm pretty sure Britness made this herself and had it printed.  And two bookmarks.  The skull one came on the package so I think it's a bookmark, but not 100% sure.

Day 2.
A spider 3D puzzle.  I really like this.  I can't decide if I should put it together and paint it or glitter it . . .  Roll Eyes

Here is my first day.  The bag says "Cory's Ballsack"  Grin  I'll update with the quote after I get home and can actually read it.

Here is the package I recieved yesterday just begging to be opened....

Less than a week to go.....  It's time!

deadbathducky said that the container she made for me broke as it was being packed so instead I got this HUGE orange bag

and inside are all my packages all wrapped up!  I love how they are wrapped with white paper that deadbathducky decorated them all with colored pencils.

Day 12:  An iconic Aussie treat

TimTams!!!! OMG these are sooooooo good!!!  I am sad that I can't get them here.  I may have to go checking around some of the shops that carry candy from other countries....Oh and a lip balm!

Day 11: Felt Finger Hot pad and a reversible felt bracelet.  One of my kids will probably make off with the bracelet!

Day 10: The cutest skull ornaments!!!!!!  It's like my own skull family, there is me, by boyfriend, and the two kids!!  I love these.

Day 9: A Frankenstein Mask modeled by my son Landon

Day 8: Bracelets the kids and I shared these among ourselves

Day 7: Love this little guy!  You can't tell in the photo but he has a battery operated candle inside and lights up!

Day 6: These awesome ghost containers

And what's inside?

A Frankenstein bracelet, a bat pin, and some little pill shaped things that I think you put in water to grow.  

Day 5: More Candy!

We tried Milko and it tastes like chewy sweet milk.  The Bertie Beetle is kind of like a Cunch bar.  The Zappo candies look interesting...

Day 4: Some super sweet smelling strawberry soap, a little pin which I will wear tomorrow, and some glow in the dark face paint

Day 3: A monster hat and the most awesome severed finger scissor case.

Day 2: A witchy candle

Day 1: A Ghost stuffy from right off my wist

Thanks so much Deadbathducky!

Here are a few photos of things that I made that didn't make it into the gallery
Here is a closeup of the jewelry I sent

A candy corn stuffy

The little pouch

A Spider photo holder

A skeleton print out

And Halloween Magnets

Goodies received from PurplePaisley!

Day 13!  

Day 12!  

Day 11!!  

Day 10!

(the fingers unfortunately were rattling around in the box... I have a handy dandy tube of E-6000 that should take care of that, though!)

Day 9!

Day 8!  Candy!  Three packs of Chewy Sprees!

Day 7, 6, and 5 were for my kids.  I had to let them open them all together to avoid rioting and acts of pyromania.  Trick or treat bags for the younger two, and pencils and lollies for the oldest.  They all say thank you Cheesy

Day 4!

Day 3!

Day 2!

and Halloween!

Thank you for everything and hope you have a fabulous Halloween!  Grin

My adorable box:

Day 1: Sugar Skull Container
She's much cuter than my fuzzy picture captures

Day 2: Cat toys!!
I love them so much, and so do my cats

Day 3: Skull Hands Barrett
I wore this to work today! Everyone at work loved it.

Day 4: A cute little pumpkin

An adorable polymer ghost magnet

And a pumpkin that is currently getting a new back magnet as it wouldn't stick

Day 5: Apple Halloween Pillow

This pillow smells SO GOOD. It smells like autum. I had it laying on my bed and my sleeping pillows smell delish now.

Day 6: Voodoo Doll

How adorable is this! I love all things Tim Burtony and this reminds me of my tattoo that I have of the voodoo girl heart. I love it so much.

Day 7: Edward Gory Box

This is so awesome - everything is sealed up and I am already using the box to throw change into!
