The box arrives and here is the awesome huge bag that was inside, and a pic of all the great loot.

I call this spot!

I received, I received!!!  OMG!  I thought this day would never come!  My partner and I decided to open on the first, and since my package didn't come until today, I decided that I had a lot of catching up to do.  ^_^  I think I will only post a couple of a time, just to keep you all intrigued though.  So now, onto all the wonderful goodies I got from my amazing partner, audania1.

Here is all my wonderful days all in the box with the letter audania wrote me.  

And all my day out in a row!  Look at all that wonderful goodness!  I was sooooo excited to start opening!

DAY 13

Day 13 reporting for duty and awaiting opening!

Little containers that were cans that she re-purposed and added handles too that are sooo cute and full of candy.  My hubby was making impatient sounds and then when I passed over his he started to do a happy little humming ditty.  Weirdo.  I feel like I went trick-or-treating!

And part 2 is a freakin' adorable framed 8"x11", fabric-covered cork board with rubbery skull push pins.  The hubby really like the skulls, as do I!  I think I'm going to use it to display all the halloween ATC's I've been getting in my other swaps.  Perfect!!!

DAY 12
There was a note on these that said I should put them in the freezer.  I think my partner was worried about melting.  Chocolate covered cookies, oh my!  It doesn't look like there was any melting.  Washington is definitely not warm lately.  Its been pretty dreary and cold for the past couple of weeks.  They hubby and I were so full after dinner, that we haven't tried these yet, but they look divine!  We might have to get our cookie on tomorrow.

DAY 11
Beautifully decorated jars with different popcorn seasonings inside!  The "Frog's Breath" has Parmesan-ranch seasoning (I think this one will be my favorite!), "Deadly Nightshade" has pizza popcorn seasoning, and "Poison" has cinnamon chocolate popcorn seasoning.  Looks like the hubster and I have major popcorn eating in our future.

DAY 10
A jar to make Mocha Rum Balls!  Oooooooooo!  "A scruptuosly delicious treat for you and hubby to enjoy.  Happy Halloween!"  It certainly sounds delish!  I think I have the perfect rum for this.  Time to release the Kraken spiced rum!  hehe.


Pumpkins on tiles, and the big one in the middle have my husband and my wedding anniversary date on it (which is next weekend!  ack!)!  The pumpkins are so beautifully drawn!  They all have cork underneath so that they can be used as coasters and a trivet!  How cool!

Up close of the big pumpkin.


Looook!!!!!!  Wrist cuffs and a hat headband (which I am currently wearing as I write this, its actually pretty comfortable!)  Aren't they awesome!!

I'm so wearing wrist cuffs to work on halloween!  YAY YAY!

Its sparklie and fabulous!


A vintagy looking banner that says "Eat, Drink, and be Spooky" on it!  How cute!!!

Up close!  I love the images!


OMG!  Look at this apron!!!  So freaking cute!  I'm going to look so fabulous while I bake!


Beautifully crocheted HATS!  One for my husband, one for me, and a little pumpkin for our "awesome little person that is not here yet".  My husband and I are trying for a baby.  They are sooooo soft!  I cannot crochet, so I looooove when I get crocheted stuff!

For some reason I just couldn't get a non-blurry picture of my husband.  It was night and the living room is dimly lit, so I'm blaming it on that.  ^_^  Hubby told me to wear the headband and the hat at the same time.  I look smashing, don't I?


Pumpkin hair pins!  Aren't they beautiful!!!

Me wearing the poop out of 'em this morning.  They are so pretty!  (I'm in love with my Retro Camera app on my andriod <3  It takes such fun pictures!  Plus, I find it hard to hold my giant camera up and try to take pictures of myself.  Its waaaaay easier with a phone!  ^_^)


Cute little glass etched jars with (I believe) beach sand inside and yummy smelling tealight candles.  So cute!  There was four, but one didn't make the journey.  Sad!!  They are currently sitting on our entertainment center above our tv.  So cute!


Cinnamon and Chili hot chocolate mix!  What!  I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds amazing!  And chocolate covered spoons!  I can suck on them?  *puppy dog eyes*  FINE!  I will just stir them in the hot chocolate.  Psh.


Look at this!!!  Straight from my Wist, spooky tree wine glasses!  The postal service was a little hard on my package, so sadly only one made it.  But it is so lovely!!!


A beautiful candle holder with a pumpkin spice candle inside, which I can smell from here from its place on the entertainment center.  On the candle holder is a set of fall recipes.  They look so good!  I'm gonna have to try 'em out soon.

There is another extra, a cute little halloween decoration, but it needs to be fixed.  I'll post pictures of it as soon as that's done!

Calabaza and I decided to start opening from October 1st, which is today. Needless to say I really couldn't wait so I opened it at midnight

SO here is Day 13

I love love love the picture frames they are perfect. The green thing is a pillowcase, which I (and I hope i am right) is an octopus tentacle, if not then I have no idea what the circles are because all I see are suckers. I love it and can't wait to use it.

Day 12

I love the jewelry she made me and I can't wait to wear my zipper flower

Day 11

I made my bf model for the photo, you can tell he was thrilled!

Day 10

Calabaza made me super awesome legwarmer/spats. I cannot wait to wear them, mostly likely this weekend.

Day 9

Today I got a handful of awesome things, two Halloween mini-pillows/door knob decor/hang it anywhere I want!, Glitter Skulls (can't wait to wipe some of the glitter on the BF, he hates it  Grin) and lastly super awesome ghost blank cards, the shape of the ghost reminds me of Blinky and Pinky from Pac-man. Going to have to find a way to keep at least one and turn it into some sort of art because I love the shape.

Day 8

Today I got the COOLEST THING EVER, a steampunk skirt. The first thing I did was put it on I am sooo wearing this on Saturday. Thanks so much Calabaza, YOU ROCK!

Day 7

Sweet statues!

Day 6

Awesome Labels (I want to stick them to everything) and bats that I am going to stick to everything.

Day 5

I can't wait to use my new glo in the dark oven mitts, and the towel and bottle opener are awesome.

Day 4

I want to bake something right now so that I can put them on these awesome plates

Day 3

I love the candles and I love the spiderweb tablecloth and placemats, can't wait to use them.

Day 2

All I wanted to do was eat the frosting, but I was good because I am going to make these for the Halloween party I am going to in Oct 29th

Day 1

These awesome homemade dolls that I can't wait to use in one of my crafts, they turned out amazing and I might have to make more.

Thank you soooo much Calabaza I loved everything and you rock.
