For day 13 my partner, Arcadian Green, spoiled me with sweets!!! I can't wait to dig in Smiley 7 full pumpkin bags of candy, a box of boogers, toxic waste candy, a black rat, a googly eyed pen, a cat key chain, and my favorite, a candy blood bag. So cool!

Day 12: 12 Halloween recipes on cards. Perfect timing since I just found out we're having a pot luck next week at work. They're really neat.

Day 11: A Halloween tree with ornaments. Love it! Have to say, I was searching all over for that same tree for my partner with no luck.

Day 10: Supplies!!! Some scrapbook paper (the tree and bats are my favorite) and some stickers.

Day 9: It's a great day! 2 Cinnamon hot pads which I've been wanting to make forever and I'm happy I now know what was making the whole box cinnamon scented. 2 pincushions, which I also really wanted forever, 2 awesome knitted pumpkins, and some embellishments.

Day 8: Baking Day! Lots of great stuff, Zombie cupcake kit, cookie cutters, an awesome bowl, cupcake papers, sprinkles, and a potions container which I ended up putting the plastic cookie cutters in for now which works out great.

Day 7: Candy Corn Day! An awesome knitted washcloth and 4 knitted coasters along with 2 candy corn votives.

Day 6: Storage Jar Day! These are so cute. Decorated with cute fall leaves. Inside 2 have candy corn (YUM!), 2 have plastic leaves, and 2 have really pretty black glittery ornaments. Because they look so neat I think I might keep everything in there for display (well, not the candy corn ones, those will be empty tonight Smiley )

Day 5: Another great day! A beautiful Halloween sign that's all glittery Smiley Plus a "Boo" sign, a cool set of countdown blocks which I will probably keep out all year since I always count down to things, and 2 beautiful necklaces. I'm wearing the black one right now.

Day 4: My partner and I have been on the same wave length for a lot of this swap. Today I received 2 black widow spider bowls (whenever I moved out of AZ I now have something to remind me of them), and 2 candy corn salt/pepper shakers.

Day 3: 2 really cool decorated bird houses and a great little bag.

Day 2: 2 great aprons. I've never had an apron before. I love the black one with stars and purple furriness, and with the other one I find it funny my partner and I used the exact same fabric for our aprons.

Day 1: It's so sad it's ending! My partner gave me an awesome pattern for a wall quilt plus the fabrics to go with it. I love the fabric choices. She was going to make it, but due to some uncontrollable circumstances she was unable to, but that's fine with me. It gives me a great excuse to do something for myself.

Thank you Arcadian Green for an awesome swap!!!

For Day 13, Megnificent sent me a bunch of candy treat bags! These are almost gone, since my sister decided the box needed to be opened early. (Awesome choices by the way!)

For Day 12, I received some awesome stuff! I'm feeling spoiled already!

3 goblets, 2 ice cube trays (I'm thinking I'll use them for chocolate making, my new obsession), a pair of skeleton gloves (I love these! I have a bunch of different interesting gloves that I wear all winter), three adorable hairthings, a skeleton headband (both of these are so well made!), a set of spider hair clips, and an amazing mini witch hat! I really love the tulle sticking out the back and the bow and the spider! Also, a few close ups:

For Day 11, I got 3 awesome smelling Halloween themed mini hand sanitizers, and 8 skeleton fairies! (Well, there were 8, my mom confiscated one to give to her friend for his birthday... he loved it and said it was going on his front door!)They are so cool, straight off my wists! I've also decided that my partner and I had a lot of similar ideas...

For Day 10, I got an awesome zombie embroidery kit (I love it and can't wait to try!), three candle holders with fuzzy designs on them, three tomb stones (these are super heavy!), a ghost candle holder, black tea lights, and a super yummy smelling pumpkin spice candle! And yes, that is a cat butt in the background, he wouldn't move!

For Day 9 I got three Halloween signs (the sparkle on the beware one messes with my camera's focus), three rings, two pairs of socks, and a really cool pirate skull beaded necklace!

For Day 8 I got some amazing hand painted wine glasses and matching orange coasters! These are so cool and your bubble wrapping job is amazing as well (I had to get the scissors out to open them!)

For Day 7 I got a painted coffin (that plays creepy sounds when you open it!) and 6 blood drop stitch markers! I really like these, I usually just use a piece of string, these are my first ones!

For Day 6 I was spoiled! I got everything I need to make Halloween cupcakes, and an awesome apron and oven mitt! My sister said she is going to steal everything and make them herself!

For Day 5 I got a Horcrux Harry Potter shirt right off my wists (too cool! Oh, and my sister really tried to steal this too!), two amazing signs, some bloody hand prints that went up immediately for our Zombie Apocalypse Halloween party, and some drink labels that went on the drinks at our "virus cure" bar area (yes, we have interesting parties, I plan on posting some of the crafty stuff we did on the Halloween board)

For Day 4 I got an awesome glittery tote bag that I've used a few times already, a cool reversible handmade bag, two pairs of socks (one of which I've worn already), a notepad, and a light up skull keychain.

For Day 3 I got a "BOO" sign which was hung up immediately, a candy corn pillow, and an amazing knit scarf in candy corn colors! Its really long and heavy and I love it!

For Day 2 I got zombie shirts, one stenciled with "I (heart) zombies!

For Day 1 I got a sparkly shadow box with a bat in it... this is the best pic I can get because its soooooo sparkly!

Sorry for the delay in pictures, we had a big party Friday night and everything got scattered around so I need to collect the last of the packages again and take pictures! Thank you so much Megnificent, this was the coolest swap ever!

Reserved for edie22's mini gallery!

My partner is Missmuffcake

Day 13:
She sent me vegan peanutbutter cups.  I don't know that I've had anything like this before, and it was definitely different. The peanut butter isn't like waht I'm used to, and I'm still not sure how the chocolate is vegan, but they were definitely tasty! They don't photograph well -- or at least my phone didn't capture them well.  I'll try to get a better picture tomorrow at work with better lighting.

picture of the vegan peanut butter cups:

Day 12:
Things to keep my place! 12 bookmarks

Day 11:
Halloween Ornaments
There really are 11 of them, but the pic I took of all 11 came out blurry, so you get nine.

Day 10:
Random fun day
A whole bunch of random toys and things...

4 cookie cutters, some random toys, a little pot with an eyeball plant.  fun!

Day 9:
cat magnets

Day 12: cute horn hair clips, 3 monster necklaces made out of guitar picks, 3 little boxes with candy inside, grow your own dinosaurs, stickers, candy rings, and a skull lollipop. The chinchillia was not in box, but she really wanted the lollipop and horns.

Day 8: the perfect little moster frame (my son nickname is monster) 3 sheets of stickers for our halloween scrapbook, a coloring book, a clip on crow, 2 adorable hair clips

Day 7: This package was broken open when it got to me but I did not take anything out until today, I was being good. I got one gross candy ear that my son is super happy about Smiley and 6 magnets, I wanted to buy these little things but had not use for them so they made me very happy.

Day 6: 3 skinny scarves, one awesome potion bottle and 2 superhero wrist cuffs that my son won't take off

Day 5: an awesome halloween sign, a cute chalkboard, and 3 boxes (eyeballs, eye of nwet, and tail of rat)

Day 4: Spider king crown, spider box that is being used for chalk, and the 2 most amazing frankenstein and bride of frankenstein plaques that are staying up all year long

Day 3: 2 raven pillows that look great on my couch, my husband loves them too and a skeleton apron

Day 2: Super hero cape that matches the wrist cuffs and the coolest house with a blinking light, I love the house, it could not be more perfect

Day 1: A hot pink and black dinosaur schoodie that I am wearing tonight and evertime its cold, it is so awesome and soft.

Thank you so much starryeyeddiy, I love everything and so does the rest of my family.  Grin
