My spooky spectacular space!

I received from Ffrogg yesterday.  Sorry, I didn't take a pic of how pretty she wrapped everything.  Each package has a cute little saying on it.  I was a good girl, and waited till today to open.  I made myself wait until I got my morning chores done 1st.  

1st up: AWESOME stitchery!!!!  I'm going to put this in my studio, so it will stay out all year long.  How did you know that I actually do have night mares almost every night Ffrogg?  Smiley  It says: I am the Shadow on the moon at night   Filling your Dreams to the brim with fright.  
2nd Day: I saw the orange ball poking out of the top of the package.  So, that's why I chose to open it today.  As soon as I saw the white part, I knew it had to be Zero!!!  And, it was!!!  Ffrogg sent me more than 13 packages, so I took the awesome Halloween bag out of the box too!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything!!!  Thank you so much Ffrogg!!

Day 3: Don't let the outside of the box fool you!  When you open it, there is an adorable miniature witch's living room!  Soo, soo, soo cute!

Day 4: Awesome, loooong bunting!!!  I had to switch which wall I was going to hang it on, because the previously chosen wall was not long enough!  Fun candy corn socks!  I LOVE fun socks!  And, beautiful Halloween fabric.  I needed to refresh my Halloween fabric supply.

Day 5: Bootiful painted/decoupaged paper mache letters that spell out B O O.  

Day 6: A beautiful earthen ware mug that I plan on drinking my coffee and hot apple cider out of.  I even love the colors, because I consider myself a, "close to the earth" kind of girl.  Smiley

Day 7: An adorable crocheted frog and a mini palm reading book.  I plan on putting the frog in my studio after Halloween.  

Day 8: 2 spooktacular plaques.  I love the vintage look of both of them.

Day 9: 5 delicious Halloween themed fat quarters!  Raggy quilt, here I come!

Day 10: The cutest crocheted pumpkin zippered pouch!  The zipper even has a clay leaf on it!

Day 11: Wonderful smelling apple bath bombs, that are the BOMB!

Day 12: A fun coffin.  It even has a vile of blood!  The little bat hanging upside down is my favorite part!

Day 13: Boo hoo, the last day!  A Day of the Dead Sugar Skull.  I got one in a Day of the Dead swap, and they look wonderful together!  Thank you so much Ffrogg for making my Halloween spooktacular!

Day 1
I am now the very proud owner of one of Ms. kittykill's creations.  She made a headless horseman cross stitch that's just perfect.  Isn't it awesome?

Day 2
Today's goodie is an eyeball candle in a spooky severed skeleton's hand.  Love it!

Day 3
Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous (and spooky) embroidery in the most amazing oval frame!  Just wow!

Day 4
Socks!  And they totally go with the jammies I was wearing when I opened them.   Grin

Day 5
Candy Candy Candy!  Can't wait to try the gummie body parts.  We're having company over tonight, I'm going to serve them.   Shocked

Day 6
EEP!  Spider girl!  She's vintage perfection!  I love her!

Day 7
Halloween ornaments!  I am going to have to get a Halloween tree to display these.  I received a few in last year's swap, too, so I think the universe is telling me to get one...  I love them so much.   Smiley

Day 8
The most perfectly stitched 'Trick or Treat' kitchen towel!  Just gorgeous!  

Day 9
It's a box full of fun!  I love the images she chose to embellish it, and the skull on top is fantastic.

Here's another view:

Inside I found this adorable 'snow' globe.   Smiley

and classic monster movie goodies.  Yahoo!

Day 10
I am seriously in love with this key fob.  Dude.  Seriously.  I want to learn how to make these myself because they're so cool!

Day 11
Two gorgeous chunky houses to add to my Halloween chunky house neighborhood.  I love these so much!  If I'm not mistaken I think they are kittykill's first attempt.  She's a pro!  

Day 12
The most darling raven on a fence mug and some yummy tea and chai to try.

Day 13
Boo!  Last day... kittykill sent me the most beautiful, fluffy, warm, amazing throw.  My cat Bindi immediately tried to claim it as her own.  Not so fast there, missy!  Thank you kittykill for the most amazing swap.  It's been wonderful opening my treasures from you every morning.

My Halloween Gallery of goodies from michelleandbean

Here's everything (except for day 6 which is in a separate box that has not yet arrived despite being mailed the same day as the other box. Darnit, USPS!)

~*~ Day 1 ~*~

Yum, yum, yum!! All pineapple goodies. Pineapple jelly, pineapple gummies (in a hysterical "specimen" bag!), pineapple lip balm and pineapple gummy bears! Pineapple is my all-time favorite but since I hate coconut, it's nearly impossible to find JUST pineapple things. Yay!! I've already sampled the gummy bears and they're quite good! Grin

~*~ Day 2 ~*~

Awesome bat shadowbox! It has a bat flying by a full moon, a spooky tree and mossy ground. Love it! Grin

~*~ Day 3 ~*~

Two glass potion bottles! "Wool of Bat" and "Grounded Bones." The kitty is little Ginger who literally would not let me take a photo without her "help." Wink

~*~ Day 4 ~*~

Adorable Mickey Ear fleece pillows in orange and black and Mickey Ear banner in black and orange. So cute! (I am a massive Disney fan so this is great.)

~*~ Day 5 ~*~

Framed bat art. I love the ornate frame on this!

~*~ Day 6 ~*~

An awesome black and orange ornament wreath! So festive!!

~*~ Day 7 ~*~

A cute felt owl and a neat ceramic owl. The ceramic one opens and is hollow inside so he can hold things.

~*~ Day 8 ~*~

A basket full of pumpkins! I've artfully spilled them out so you can see them here but they all fit nicely in the basket to make it full.

~*~ Day 9 ~*~

Cat day! There was a "crinkle mat" which has an orange full moon and bats on it and it's fuzzy with a crinkly center so when the cats lay on it, it makes noise. Ginger was quite taken by it which is why I couldn't get a shot withOUT her on it! Also, four felt cat toys; Mickey Ears, Bat, Mouse, Fish. I also could not get a photo without Ginger's "help" in testing them out. Plus, Mika and Gracie wanted to play too.

~*~ Day 10 ~*~

A really lovely little bag in a fun orange/red/yellow fabric with a elastic button closure. Fully lined with a little pocket inside too.

~*~ Day 11 ~*~

6 crochet washcloths (2 each, black, orange, white) plus Halloween cupcake liners and Halloween cookie cutters!

~*~ Day 12 ~*~

A really pretty rose barrette, a skeleton key, steampunky gear necklace and earrings, lock and key earrings and ring that looks like it was made from an extremely detailed old button.

~*~ Day 13 ~*~

An awesome stitched "Tomb Sweet Tomb" sign! (It's from Haunted Mansion ride at Disney.)

Yay! What an awesome swap. I had SO much fun and the range of items were so very thoughtful and creative. Thank you, michelleandbean for an excellent swap!!

On Day 1 I received:

Three ghouls to keep me company. You cant see it in the picture but they have red (bead) eyeballs.
They now guard m garden fence!

plus: sticky eyeballs (glow in the dark!) that run down windows. The cat is very fascinated

On Day 2 (zombie day) I received:

a handprint sticker (goes to my front door) and zombie paper doll chains!

plus a mystery walking dead figure. Who might it be?


a corporate zombie. Nice  Grin (in my opinion he has a rather "healthy" skin tone for a zombie  Grin)

On Day 3 I received:

delicate beaded bat earrings

the awesomeness continues:
On Day 4 I received:

I received two felt patches and some skulls beads for my collection. The skull patch is going to go on my jacket (as a pin)

On Day 5 I received:

"the glass Lizzie Borden drank from just before her death in 1927" Very hard to photograph but you hopefully get the impression that there is an etched hand print on it..

plus caution tape. I may put it on the toilet door...

On Day 6 I received: (I realised I have to use more adverbs to properly appreciate calixitas work)

Books <3
two supertiny ones: one with beautiful pictures of Mount Auburn Cemetery, one with tiny horror film poster (beginning and ending with one of "night of the living dead"   Grin) and a very inspiring "Book of skull"s with pictures of artwork that involve skulls.

I love that font and it is free!

plus a neat magnetic bookmark

On Day 7 I received:

Seven more tiny books:

One with spooky images (it also has googly eyes on the cover)

One with poetry, containing "Tourist Season" by David R. Gluck (cracked me up) and "untitled" by Michael Nguyen (creepy )

One with pictures of "Northhampton State Hospital" and "Danvers State Hospital" (so cool)

One Skizzenbuch (sketchbook in German) with blank pages

One Zeitschrift (magazine in German) with also blank, lined pages

One leather bound with blank pages

and one labeled "My Dolls" with creepy doll face pictures

plus a mini woodland  library,lined with horror movie posters and a library gargoyle to watch them all

I am quite overwhelmed and cant even imagine how much work went into all that tiny books and the bookshelf
love them all!

On Day 8 I received:

An altered "model" (I dont know the name for it) house plus this story that goes with it (Read it!!):
A tiny zombie house:
A minor earthquake hit a small new england town and caused an explosion in an unused mine. A black cloud of dust settled in a 30 mile area surrounding the old mine. It was mostly woods and 1 building, The Wooden Nickel Inn. All the animals quickly died and the humans at the Inn soon fell gravely ill themselves. Two elderly tourists were there the first to die but doctors were baffled as to treatment. Then police received a 911 call that the dead tourists were attacking the other inhabitants. No one has come out of the house since....

look at that tiny bloody axe, and the bloody handprint in the window!

isntt it supercool !?!

On Day 9 I received:

A necklace with three different shrink plastic pendants:
Momento mori, Black caviar for zombies and The black broken heart of an ex-lover   Grin Grin Grin Grin
Had a good laugh before I had to go to the dentist, thanks!

(sorry for the bad pic, it was the best out of 20..)

On Day 10 I received:

A felt oogie boogie stuffed with bugs. He is awesome and will join my collection of handcrafted pin cushions.

you can even take the bugs out. Look how tiny they are  Shocked (compared to my giant finger) and each one is different

calixita, you are such a delicate crafter

On Day 11 I received:

A beaded werewolf artwork. Calixita originally wanted to turn it into a cuff bracelet but thought Id find the colors too drab, thoshe briefly considered giving him a rainbow background  Smiley I think all ideas are good. I think it is beautiful anyways..

On Day 12 I received:

A bloody bathtub pin cushion with bone, hand and eyeball pin. It was Calixitas first time working with poly clay. Very creative!

On the last Cry Cry Cry Cry day I received:

Four awesome beaded bracelets. I love bracelets. The eye one is sooooooooooooo cool and the other have really pretty color combos

Action shot

I am so sad it is all over now. Calixita you have been an incredible partner. Everything I received is so thoughtful and well made. I hope to swap with you some time in the future again. Thank you.  Smiley
P.S. Due to your awesome bead work I got hooked up on beading again. And I blame you that I ordered 50 worth of what the internet says are the best beads (miyuki) and a loom  Wink

My fabulously fantastic QueenNinjaMonkey awesomeness:

Day 1/13/whatever:  WOO CANDY CORN

Seriously.. I love candy corn enough that it is probably considered illegal in several southern states.  And Starburst candy corn is the best!  Woo!  Terraria and candy corn has been my agenda all evening.. lol


These completely adorable pillows with painted zombie silhouettes on the front and cool skull fabric on the back.  So so awesome!

Day 3!!

Wee felt ornaments!  SO so so cute.  They make me ridiculously happy.  Also, candy corn duct tape! <3

Day 4!!

This poor adorable candy corn zombie hoop.  I think it's needle punched?  It's thick and awesome and bumpy.  

It looks fantastic on my "favorites" wall, too! Cheesy

Day 5!!

More zombie felties!  Squeeeee!!  And a Zombie Apocalypse book that my 16-year-old shockingly stole.  Double bonus!

I bought this glittery halloween tree last year to use in my craft booth, but my ornament production outgrew it pretty quick, so it's been sitting on top of a shelf looking fancy but bare.  Bare no longer!

Day 6!

This day proves that Madame Ninja Monkey is a psychic.   First, socks!  I love weird socks, and my candy corn socks are tied for favorites with the eyeball socks and the striped socks.  But now candy corn striped socks?  winner!

The coasters are awesome with foam skeleton feet, but, most importantly, they have Chris Mars paintings on them, and he is one of my favorite artists of all time.

The kicker: I didn't tell her I loved both of these things, so she must be psychic!!

Day 7!!

Holy crap it's a soap skeleton!  I didnt even know this skeleton mold existed.  I am so excited to be washing my hands with a bony foot. Cheesy

Day 8!

A pile of fun stuff!  An adorable candy corn (wheee!), a light up lantern, and some monster pills that I might be nice and share with my kids. Wink

Day 9!

OMG MORE FELTIES.  I don't know how I lived my life without these things in it, for real.  I have looked at my little zombie tree 197591875 times over the last week.  SO FREAKIN CUTE.

Day 10!

and even more!!!  I don't want to ramble on like a maniac any more than I already have, so suffice to say they are fantastic.  Love love love.  Plus another zombie book!

Day 11!!

This cool spidery book box!  I have always wanted a book box, and I always need storage, so even more awesome.

Inside I found magnets and cool vintage postcards!

I can't believe there are only two days left! Ack!

Day 12!

This super awesome skully shirt!  I am so excited about this thing!

day 13!  waHHHH

This beautiful Halloween shrine.  I have hung it already in a place of honor - I absolutely adore it.

Thank you so much for everything, QNM!!  You were the best partner ever.

3rd Day
My partner knows I want to learn to crochet so she sent me the supplies to get started! Smiley I can't wait to learn and I've been eyeing that Creepy Cute Crochet book for a while now. Plus, even better, she sent me the pattern for her zombie bunny slippers  Grin

4th Day

Adorable Day of the Dead bunny. I love this little guy and how bright he is! Also I love that themuppet's son calls them sugar buns.  Grin

5th Day

So I am seriously in awe of themuppet's painting skills!! I asked her for a Marcelene painting which you saw on day 2, but she went above and beyond by painting me a set of pictures from the same episode of Adventure Time! Here is Princess Bubblegum and Beemo, and I am in heaven.  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

6th Day
My partner wasn't sure if this idea translated well or not, but I freakin LOVE it! It's a voodoo doll wreath, awesome!

7th Day
Creepy little candy corn, this guy is so sweet! I love his expression!

8th Day
I love pretty much anything thing Day of the Dead, so of course I flipped when I opened this couple!

I love the texture/coloring of their skulls and the tiny roses!!  Grin

9th Day
It's Jake! I can't wait to hang these all up together!  Grin

10th Day
Zombie Lumpy Space Princess! This is seriously awesome, she's going to look great on my hoop wall!

11th Day
Supplies  Smiley Things I definitely need, felt, hoops in all sizes, embroidery floss and a cute felt sugar skull. I am in the process of making felt ornaments of every Adventure Time character so this will really help!  Grin

12th Day
It's Finn!  Smiley Smiley I'm so, so in love with these paintings!

13th Day
Skeleton dry erase board, love this! It's going next to the fridge.  Grin Also lots of Tootsie Rolls, which I also love. They were everywhere in the box and I have eaten tons.  Cheesy

I am so sad this swap is over. Thank you so much themuppet, I loved everything and I would happily swap with you again in the future!  Smiley Smiley Smiley
