mine  Smiley

My package arrived last week. It couldn't have come on a better day Smiley

Day 13:

The whole lot! (minus one that the wrapping got caught on the tape and i don't want to rip it)

So, soulsfiresgrace and I decided to do a "hubby" day, and although he wasn't supposed to open his until day 7, he talked me into letting him open his today since I have 12 more days of goodies..

First: an etched glass mug with "a zombie eating a dude's arm," and "Dawn of the Dead." This conversation actually happened: "omg babe! this is so cool! go get me a beer!" "ed it's 9 a.m." "AND?? this is so friggin awesome.. it needs beer in it!"

Second: an adorable little hand painted frankie figure. hubby looooves it. he's spent the morning thinking of the perfect place to put him.

hubby and his new little friend:

Such an awesome start to this swap! and soulsfiresgrace, hubby says "thankyouthankyouthankyou!"

Day 12:

woohoo! jewelry supplies!! i really love the little glass bottles and plan to make little holiday viles (one halloween and one christmas). most of this stuff has already had its fate decided Smiley

UPDATE! So, it would seem that there were two #12 packages.. honestly.. i have been spoiled and it's only the second day.

soulsfiresgrace made me some INSANELY AWESOME poly clay pendants. these pictures do no justice but my brother and i have spent the past half hour "oohing and aahhing"

All together: Included are brains, bones, bats, cats, cauldrons (with tentacles coming out!), ghosts, pumpkins, candies, and so much more!!

And a quick close up of some of the awesomeness!

Day 11: A great recipe journal (jam packed with halloween recipes that include drinks, coctails, entrees, and spooky treats), and an adorable potholder and coaster set featuring really awesome halloween fabric and spiderwebs (the coasters are reversible)

Day 10: today was doggie day! my dog foxy recieved a great package that included two new collars and a squeaky cheeseburger (which was immediately snatched up by our recently aquired chihuahua puppy)

foxy checking out her gift (that little pink and white blur is the new pup "pinky")

two new collars! one is purple with black and white spiderwebs, the other (which she is currently wearing) is pink with khaki and dark pink skulls

and i tried to get a picture of it on her but being a chow it's nearly impossible to see anything under that fluff... but.. she says thank you very much soulsfiresgrace!

Day 9: Candy day! hubby and i were on a road trip and munched candy all the way to vegas! also included were some cute band-aids and toys, and a chew bone for foxy Smiley

Day 8: An awesome monster pillow, with not one monster, but two!

Scary zombie monster side:

Not so scary mummy side (which is currently displayed proudly on the couch):

Day 7: ADDDVENTURE TIME! Soulsfiresgrace and I decided to do an Adventure Time themed day and she made me the most awesome stuffie ever!

Is it jake the dog?

No! It's finn the human! Being jake the dog for halloween Cheesy

I've already gotten multiple "OMG I WANT"s out of friends i have shown this too. I LOVE IT!!

Day 6: Today was sewing day! I recieved tons of great fabric, buttons, and ribbon!

My absolute favorites though are the coffin and tombstone. They're actually a pincushion (coffin) and needle book (tombstone) How clever! and I was in desperate need of both of those things!

Day 5: Hello Kitty Day!!

Everything came in this awesome halloween bag! there's lots of room and i'm planning on using it throughout the season!

Woohoo! Hello Kitty activity book, pencils, shrinky charms, ink stamps (everyone is getting hk christmas cards this year), a cute little phone charm.. and.. my very own hello kitty ears! I'll try to get an action shot soon!

Day 4: Soulsfiresgrace made me an awesome shaun of the dead painting!! i freaking love the blood splatters! i have another shaun painting from a zombie swap and i think i need to start a collection..

Day 3: WOW! Tons of new halloween hair accessories! Skeleton hand clips, batty bobby pins, pretty flowers, cute little spiderweb bows, bone chopsticks, and more! I'll get some action shots soon!

Day 2: Some very adorable monster ornaments! The moon is my favorite. Hubby and I were talking about the man in the moon just the other night..

.. and not to sound like a total geek.. but it reminds me of the dirty bubble from spongebob.. but i think that just makes it even more awesome!

Day 1: Happy Halloween! and there's a zombie attack! a hello kitty zombie attack that is  Wink i recieved this awesome hk zombie stuffie and she's already partying with halloween finn! thank you so much soulsfiresgrace!

I got my package from seamaiden75 yesterday. (Thanks girl! Everything looks so awesome!) Prepare to be blown away!

First off the huge box that my cat "Monster" took an instant liking to.

The goodies in the box

Everything all laid out

And close ups of all the wonderful wrappings. It's like Christmas except it's Halloween! lol!

Yay for Halloween goodies!

Day 13
I love this bag soo much! Totally cute! Notice the mickey head rhinestones!

Day 12
She totally spoiled my kiddos on their own special day!
For my 2yo (almost 3) son. So thoughtful of her to send safety lollipops! And he just adores the puppets!

For my 6yo daughter. She is so happy to have some art projects to do!

For my hubby.

We can't wait to watch this movie! She picked this one because my hubby is the Ice Cream Man!

And for me!

A great little owlie bucket with shroom gummies! Yay!

DAY 11

Orange cream fudge!! Soooo yummy!

And this AWESOME binder full of amazing recipes that I can't wait to try! It is so amazing!!

DAY 10
This so totally awesome, looks like it was store bought and amazing vampire mug filled with all kinds of yummys and goodies

This tree is sooo frickin awesome! I love it so much! I can't believe she made 31 ornaments! All of them are different and unique and so well done.

My favorite one!

I LOVE THIS! I'm going to hang it up by my front door at kid level so my daughter can hang her backpack and sweatshirts from it! So awesome!


WOW! This is so awesome! It's like a witch carousel! I've never seen anything like it! LOVE IT!

In the dark shot. She even included the moss and the light!


We decided to do a Coraline day and she sent me these really great Coraline film strip barrettes and a SQUID!!! He's perfect and I <3 him so much! My son has been hugging him since he came out of the box. I love these gifts! Thanks so much Marianne!

Day 5

All these great goodies! Fake blood splatters, cockroaches, caution tape, bloody gauze and creepy cloth! I think I'm going to use all of these in the Haunted House at my daughter's school. UPDATE: I did use all of these things in the haunted house and they were the perfect finishing touches!


I got this FABULOUS pin cushion!! OMG I FREAKING LOVE IT!! It is so beautifully done. I can't believe it's mine! I have it proudly displayed on my mantle.

She even personalized it!


AWESOME! Spooky ghost story book purse! I love the little tombstone button! Eeeee! I can't wait to use it!


OMG!! This is sooo amazing! A Zero Ami!! Ahhhh! I LOVE him so so much! Thank you Marianne!

And as if that wasn't enough awesomeness for one day, she also included 6 Alice in wonderland stitch markers! 3 for crochet and 3 for knitting. I don't have any yarn projects going at the moment so I hung them on my Halloween tree (also from Marianne)!


So so cool! I've always wanted a record bowl. It even has droolworthy Johnny Depp as Sweeney Todd! And this cute Haunted house card!

Marianne, thank you so so much for being such a great swap partner! This is by far the best and most fun swap I've ever crafted/received. (no offense to any previous swap partners) Smiley  You've become a really great friend and I hope we can do some more swaps together! Thanks again and Happy Halloween to all! Grin

Day 1

Ghostie wearing a bat tie pleather bag and crocheted table runner. Love the colors on the runner! I can't wait to use it. I have the perfect spot already picked out! Thank you!

Day 2

A Halloween duck. Thank you!

Day 3

A mini felt pumpkin bucket with tiny little candies and cookies. The candy corn is so cute! Thank you!

Day 4

Make your own door knob hangers foam kit. I let the littles next door make them and they gave one to each of the elderly neighbors next to us. The littles are moving in a couple of weeks so the oldest, who's 5, said it was a going away gift from him :-) Thank you!

Day 5

BEWARE garland. Sweet! I really like the backgrounds and the fonts used! As soon as my batteries charge back up I'll take a pic of it hanging up on the fireplace. Thank you!

Mantel pic!

Day 6

Mini spider bag. It's big enough to hold my sock yarn down inside my bigger bag. I'm planning on using it as a yarn holder anyway for a doctors visit this week. And the spiders match my spider earrings my daughter made me. Thank you!

Day 7

Make your own Halloween candy jars. There are three little water bottles there. One seems to be hiding. A great rainy day project with the littles. Thank you!

Day 8

Halloween cookie cutters and recipes. I looked high and low for my cutters after we moved and they've gone poof! These were so needed! Thank you!

Day 9

Halloween fat quarters! Love the eye fabrics! I have plans for these! Thank you!

Day 10

Cool Diner sign. Love it! Thank you!

Day 11

Martini Shakers. The kids are using these to make their koolaid cool without having to have ice in their glass lol I think next year I'll use them with a flicker light in the bottom. Thank you!

Day 12

Halloween Cd. Thank you!

Day 13

I opened when I got up. Nothing like a bit of halloween with your coffee :-) Two foam make your own tic tac toe board games. Thank you!

Thanks so much to the organizer, this was fun!

Awesome Halloween penicls and erasers and Charlie Brown back to carry them in!   Cheesy  This totally speaks to my teacher side.

Chunky bracelet with black cats on it.


Orange pumpkin - the other side is purple.

Witchy cat socks and two pairs of earrings - witches and cats.  The cats match the bracelet from Day 5.


A whole pad of Halloween themed paper.

Awesome LED pumpkins.  I wish I'd had these earlier this week to put in my classroom!

Thanks Lola.  I hope you enjoy all your goodies too.
