my spot! eeek I can't wait! luckily i was out of town for a few days which kept my mind off all of the halloween goodness, but now I'm back home and can't stop thinking about what's waiting to be unwrapped!

Day 1: Woohoo! My goodies started off with 3 beautiful spiderwebs (and one sparkly spider)!



Day 2: Two cute little friends! These little ladies are adorable! They actually remind me of myself and my best friend/cousin! My parents would refer to us as "summer and winter" because she's blonde and I've got long dark hair. I think this little pair represents us well  Cheesy



sooo tiny and cute!



Day 3: EEEEEKKKKKKK! After yesterday I wasn't sure if things could get any cuter, but LOOK AT THESE! Two adorable felt brooches, featuring a friendly little bat and two super cute pumpkins. They're larger than your usual brooch, which is perfect since I plan on wearing them on my labcoat at work!

Edel's gallery of AWESOMENESS made by Calixita


[/color]

I couldn't trust myself to open the box before today as it would have been such a temptation, but these are my goodies all laid out

I simply adore the tags, each one is different , skulls, skeletons etc...they look briliant. It is taking me all my resistance to not rip into all of the packages...

and she sent me two lovely FQ and some tiny skull beads as an extra.


and about my partner first off let me say that she is such a liar..there is no way that this first item is a small..it must have taken ages to make and it is frigging incredible...

Day 1

fabulous fabulous countdown calendar, it not only has a brilliant paper art page for each day, but it also has a spooky quote on the back..I love this!

Day 2

Candy, amazing!! so far the salted caramels are epic, and unaccountably gone Huh the little tin is sweet and I will definitely use that for something.



if that weren't enough, there was the sweetest little necklace a kind of a skeleton angel, She is so cute! and I love the colours. And there is a gorgeous crow bookmark. As with all of the packages, epic gift tags.

Day 3

this is gorgeous, a crocheted peace lily for my mexican DOTD corner.  Lilies are also about new starts and renewal, things have been a little tough lately and this was a perfect perfect thing to open today.



This is it in situ. lots of other swap goodies in this corner too



Day 4

now this is darling, the cutest grim reaper ever, I know he is supposed to be all grim and reaper-y. But he is so sweet, reminds me of squeak from terry pratchett. He is made of fimo and on a wire so he can be used in a plant pot...



this is him in his new home.



Day 5

I freaking love this, it was large and heavy and clinked and then I opened it...!!!

Calixita and I share a love of cocktails, so she sent me this, it is awesome and if that weren't way more than enough by itself, she added three shot glasses. It is really difficult to see in the picture, but there are sparkly skeletons on each one. I love this so much.




Day 6
I can't believe that we are almost half way through. Today is so pretty and delicate, a gorgeous skull crocheted bracelet, made from very fine yarn.

Action shot...




Day 7

I love today's haul. I was sitting drinking a cupof tea when I opened this, The mug cozy immediately got transferred to the one I was drinking out of. I wish you could feel the texture, it is so warm and soft and with more crocheted skulls on top. And if that weren't enough there is this wonderful mug rug with autumn leaves on it, so pretty.



Day 8

OK folks prepare to be the most jealous that you have ever been when you see what today brought me, Obviously my partner is generous and talented..but she has insanely clever crafting skills, look at this. This is freaking epic. I adore it!...


raven on a ouija board back ground with a key, this is just fabulous, words fail me...And the raven is glittery. I just couldn't take a good photo of it, so Calixita, if you have a good one, please upload, this is just great.



Day 9

oohhh pretty, today's goodies are pretty and delicate and currently being worn at work. A gorgeous set of necklace and earrings, beads surrounding a turqouise skull (turquoise being my very favourite)

action shots to follow.


Day 10

ack, day 10 already, but it is gorgeous a beautiful skully scarf, I love the colour and it is so soft and snuggly

I have been wearing that scarf all weekend, so cosy.

Firstly I lost my charging lead and then my phone decided that it wouldn't charge, but it is all OK now and I can add my three final-stunning- items.

Day 11

This gorgeous, gorgeous bracelet, I tried and tried to get a decent pic, but these really don't do it justice..it is so sparkly! the centre bead is a crystal skill, so pretty.


Day 12  second last day..

this wonderful teeshirt..it fits perfectly, I love the colour and it is just brilliant!!



action shot...if you look closely you can see my raven taxidermy hanging on the wall behind me..perfect spot for him,


Day 13 final day and I am feeling blue about it, this was amazing. I have been dealing with some crap in my personal life and opening these gifts every day gave me a real boost. Also my partner provided a friendly ear. A huge thank you to her.

this came today..it rocks. Mexican shrine. Unfortunately the heart and crown came loose in shipping, so I think this is the right configuration, they will be a cinch to reglue..but if you have a photo Calixita, will you post it?

I love everything about this, the colours, the poly clay flowers, teensy cut paper garland and the anatomical heart is so well done..not to mention the chair from a bottle of fizz...just wonderful

I apologize for the size of my pictures, and that they are on their sides.  It took me an hour to figure out how to post pictures w/my son's lap top.  The hard drive gave out on my lap top a few days ago.  I knew how to do everything on my lap top.  The tablet my husband won from work, and gave to me, wouldn't let me load pictures here.  Sigh.  Rantyhippie, I sent you a message.  Now you know what I was tea dying rantyhippie.  It was the prim witch doll.  Wink

Yeah, sorry about that, I opened the wrong package. My son pulled the labels off some of them.

"and about my partner first off let me say that she is such a liar..there is no way that this first item is a small..it must have taken ages to make"

Okay, maybe not a small as far as time spent, but it was such fun to make!

So many goodies to enjoy!  Loving Ludi's embroidery (as always!) and the cute altered tin and the stuffed bats!  Fabulous pillows and yummy candy!  I just have to get thru my work night and then I'll open my next item when I get home!  (It'll technically be tomorrow by then!  Hee Hee!)
