All right - momof2 & I decided to start opening tonight since October 5th is a nice round number.  Wink  So here is my box...

And here are the goods...

Here is day 13

A Jack Skellington funkin!  Well, is it a funkin when it's a gourd?  This is so great - I almost made you the exact same thing momof2!  Now that would have been funny.  She also sent a little strobe light to go inside.


Here is day 12 - lots of candy!


My son has been obsessed with gummy bears the last couple of weeks, so that will probably be the first to disappear.  He saw them right when he got up, picked them up, and tried to bite them open.  See what I mean?

Here is day 11 - a special package just for my (almost) 2 year old.

It is a little pumpkin lantern & what I think is homemade playdough.  I admit I have been playing with it - oops lol.  I can't help poking it trying to figure out what it's made out of.

Here is day 10 - a little mix of things including a googly eyed picture frame, a couple of funny Halloween signs, and a couple of Halloween fat quarters!


Now for day 9...pumpkin spice soap & knit face scrubbies!  And the soap smells sooooooooo good!


Here is day 8, with a piece of artwork from my partner's youngest daughter.

There all kinds of scary things on it like ghosts & a cat.

And inside is all kinds of little goodies including a spiced cider sachet, a couple of spools of ribbon, a couple of stamps, some spooky owl silhouettes, and a jar of apple butter & another jar of fig preserves - mmmm!!!!

Here is day 7 (I am sad we are almost half way done  Undecided )


My googly eyed wreath!!  (I had one on my Pinterest)  Creepy and cute.

Day 6!

I'm going to have to take another pic because this one is fuzzy, but this day was for my son.  It is a very cute crayon roll in Halloween fabrics with a Mickey Mouse coloring book, glow sticks, and a little ghost stuffy.

And now for day 5...

A couple of cute little Halloween mug cozies, with mugs, hot cocoa, and coffee!


Here is day 4...

This was a very cute pumpkin colored scarf & some skeleton socks.  


Day 3...

These were some super cute skeleton coasters.  


Day 2...

Here are a couple of super cute chunky houses.  Is that what they're called?  Are they paper mache?  They don't feel like paper mache, but they are very light weight.  Hmm!  Well I love them - they're up on my mantle already.


And last but not least...day 1!  (Or why the box weighed 25 lbs)


Love this!  They're wood guys & you can take each one off and stack the wood for easy storage.

Thanks momof2! - you were a fun swap partner & I enjoyed this swap!

Okay...a little behind on my Craftster-ing lately. Love so much in this gallery already. I'll follow suit with my partner and open a few (mom2em - if you want to open lots and pretend we started opening sooner...well...I won't tell if you won't, haha).

Here is everything piled on my desk:

I might have the numbers all mixed up but I think we both just said to open any number first so here goes...

Day 13: a cushion with a pocket which had some other days' things inside. Love the eyeball fabric.

Day 12: little guys that will make great magnets for the fridge.

Day 11: Halloween cards (maybe like ATCs...I don't know much about those) but these are going on the walls in my haunted dollhouse for sure.

Day 10: a notepad (I love making lists, haha) and two great postcards for my collection!

Day 9: coffin with someone inside...

Day 8: Cool idea - a candle goes under this so he lights up!

Day 7: Ribbon, stamp, nail polish, etc.

Day 6:little clay gavestones...

Day 3: ...and little clay pumpkins (and other things) which are going straight into my haunted (doll) house!

Day 4 and 5: matching placemats and napkins - look how cute the fabric is Smiley

Day 2: decorated BOO letters for the mantel

Day 1: I have eaten so many of these already, haha...buuuuut that's ok because when they are gone I'm going to think of something great to use this container for...

Thanks for everything mom2em! Had a lot of fun in this swap. Smiley

My box from PurplePaisley arrived and as you can see..it's huge

and full of wonderfulness!!

The bad news is we had one casualty on the way here

The good news is that since it is the second I get TWO days at once. My first day is this awesome bag which will become the year around home to my laptop. It also has many pockets which is cool.

Day two is awesome as heck. It is a wreath with a spider and eyebals and candy corn lights. It is already on my wood stove plugged in! I love it

Day Three.. actually two items were marked three so I show them both to you. Two really cool two sided fabric placemats and three mug rugs!

Day 4. 4 new tile coasters for our table. Very cute

Day 5 a HUGE colony of hanging bats has moved in! When I get home they shall be hanging

Day 6. My wife shannonMB received these awesome cupcake bath fizzys. And she is coming home today from nail tech school so BONUS

Day 7. These are very cool candle holders and candles. Unfortunately the trip to their new home killed one horribly

Day 8. Now living in my kitchen are the awesome witch feet hand towels. Though nobody better dry their hands on them! They are for looking at!!

Day 9. I received some excellent kitchen magnets. Already on the fridge

Day 10. My dogs got a special treat today (and the recipe) I see peanut butter dog breat in my future! *L*

Day 11. I received a group (herd? bevy? gang?) of ghosts. They are very cool and soon shall be joining my bat swarm!

Day 12.. I received this very cute little halloween sign. I love it!

Day the last Sad This is the saddest day yet a happy day. My favorite candy!!

My awesome package from HowdySailor. She did a second 13 DoH for Little Bean. Even Mr. Bean got a package.


Mr. Bean's package

Day 1

Stenciled pillow case

Table center piece

Day 2


Day 3

There is one more present that goes with Day 3. My wall and dresser ate it. I'll have to get Mr. Bean to rescue it and I add it.

Day 4

Candles. The smaller one is NBC.

Day 5

Day 6

There was also a box of really awesome glass ornaments with fingers in them. Sadly they showed up broken.  Cry

Day 7

SOCKS! One can never have too many pairs of Halloween socks. I LOVE HALLOWEEN SOCKS!

Day 8

Martha Stewart favor bags, owl tags, and Halloween note cards.

Hopefully I haven't screwed up my days/pictures

Day 9

Day 10

I was looking at these little acorns on Etsy the other day.

Day 11

I've been wearing the purple ring all day. Love it.

Day 12

Candy in bio hazard bags

Day 13

Cool bowl with fingers floating in it.

Day 1

Spider web, spiders, stickers, and bouncy ball

Pillow case

Day 2

Halloween cup and lollipop

Day 3

There was another pair of socks. Little Bean insisted on wearing them to his surgery for his ear tubes.

Day 4

Day 5

Skull and bones bracelet. I've kind of stolen for myself. He can have it back after Halloween.

Day 7

Grow your own skeleton and black cat. I couldn't get a picture with a glare that makes them all funky looking.

Day 8

Stickers and a magic towel

I'm sure I've screwed up my pictures/days.

Day 9

Glow in the dark bats and snakes

Day 10

Flashing eye balls, pumpkins, and a ghost

Day 11

Day 12

I think this was the day with grow your own eggs. They got put in the water before I took pictures.

Day 13

Thank you so much HowdySailor. Everyone loved their package. Little Bean had a ton of fun with his swap.

My box is here! (I checked the tracking number because I thought it would be here... it said delivered. But Fiance's dad usually brings me any mail or packages I get, so I got worried... Went upstairs, there it was, on the porch! Plus the FedEx guy left some dog biscuits for our dog, who I know was barking like crazy at him. I thought that was nice.)

I managed to get a picture of my kitty Gimli with the box (though he wouldn't pose because he apparently needed to bathe):

So here's everything that I pulled out of the (enormous!) box:

And I opened the card with my name on it (in case there were instructions or something) and it's so pretty and has nice texture so I will share it too:

10/3: I got Primatheart's blessing to start on the first, which means I got to open THREE things today!!! First, look at the pretty tags she used:

So the first package was this awesomely huge pillowcase:

(I needed a pillowcase like this back when I was trick-or-treating... So much loot would fit in here!)

With this beautiful mirror inside of it:

Day 2 was TWO scarves!!!

(I managed to keep the kitties away from the fringe by giving them the ribbon from the bag I opened!)

And Day 3 was two Halloween decorations: a raven on a pumpkin and a spooky gravestone!

10/4: Day 4 is jewelry! I Pinned a necklace similar to this one, and I will definitely be wearing this to work tomorrow!

And a second necklace! Hard to tell (it was difficult to photograph) but it has little sparkly bits and some pumpkin and leaf charms inside!

And the second one was in this pretty box:

10/5: This package smelled good from the outside! Two Nightmare Before Christmas candles (one says it's mountain berry and the other is black cherry):

And also this nifty little pumpkin that lifts off to reveal that the log is hollow and can hold nifty little things!

10/6: This is my favorite so far!!! Obviously I love everything so far, but... well, look!

Cards and envelopes!!!!!

Tags and envelopes!!!!!

Coffin boxes! And at first I thought they were empty and I was really happy with today's package, but no... Primatheart is even better than that. The bracelet of paper circles at the bottom was inside one (and it feels really cool), and this was in the other...

LEAFY CHARM BRACELET!!! I wouldn't even take it off to take a picture. Obviously, it's going to work with me today.

10/7: Socks!!! I don't wear plain socks... only patterns and pictures and especially holidays!

Also, a picture frame straight from my Pinterest (which was straight from a previous round)!

10/8: Candy! And it came in this awesome specimen bag!

And this adorable squishy-soft pumpkin, and a plate/bowl/currently-acting-as-candy-dish!

10/9: Decorations!!! A little orange snowman with a jaunty little hat, and a very pretty Halloweeny wreath (which is going up at my desk at Job #3 on Friday, the next time I'm there!)

10/10: Wow!!! Book art!!! This is really awesome!!! (If you're curious, the book is Tuesdays With Morrie.) I love this so much!

I promise the last few photos tonight when I get home from work! (Batteries in my camera died.)
Here we go, last photos are here!!!

Day 11: These awesome felt leaf placemats (no doubt because I put a similar pumpkin one on my Pinterest, but these leaves are WAY better!) that I think I might have to hang on the wall in a festive manner, plus (difficult to see in the photo, sorry) one of those creepy tree centerpieces! (I have to clear off the kitchen table before I can set it up so it's still in the package.)

Day 12: Cute little pumpkin guy with a sweet hat:

Day 13: CANDY!!! Mine came in the nifty specimen bags too  Cheesy And there was one for Fiance too! He was very surprised and says thank you VERY much. I am eating gummy worms as I type (and they're really delicious... I've never had this brand before so I'll have to start looking for it!)

Thank you SO MUCH for such an INCREDIBLE swap package, Primatheart!!! You are beyond amazing and everyone should fight ferociously over the opportunity to have you as a swap partner every time you join a swap  Grin
