In case you were wondering how high the bar would be set!

Awesomeness from Missing Willow:

Look at those kits - right up my alley. Cant wait to dig into them.



Wonderful fortune teller assemblage.  Love the colors in this piece, so unexpected at Halloween.  Really much more vibrant and pretty in person!


Another wonderful piece.  This is just great!  I cant get it to photo; but, the black background behind the pumpkin is super embossed & cool!  And look at the cute Boston Terrier wearing a mask.  Love it. 


And finally, a collection of random wonderful ness.

I was well & truly spoiled!

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

Oh yay!  Glad it all made it there safely.  The black background is stamped polymer clay finished with mica powder.  Cant wait to see what you make with the kits.  Happy Halloween!

Part 1 - My package from KarenLouiseM arrived today.  Be prepared to be amazed and probably a little jealous!   Smiley. She sent me so many wonderful things that I have to post this in two parts...  We live very remotely and our internet is super slowwwwww. 
She sent me a really awesome Happy Halloween bat display (LOVE the bubble dome over the bat) and the teeniest little candy corn guy under glass. 

A vintage trick or treat costume box with a bat (and some tombstones) inside.

So many tiny fun things.... potions, ingredients, tiny people (yay) in jars and the haunted mansion ghosts on itty bitty alphabet blocks.

Books, games owl eyes in a bucket and chocolates. 

Love these heads in jars.

The Beatles/beetles.  I think these may be shrink dink?  So clever.

A shoe house kit to play with. 

More fun minis.  I have a use for that jack olantern right now!

She also sent one of her fabulous fussy cut creations, a G45 Rare Oddities  cabinet.   I am SO thrilled to have this!

When you open it, there are four drawers that pull out. 

Inside the 3 smaller ones are black cat whiskers, angel wings, a lion fish spine and toad bladders and werewolf fur and coffin nails.

The large drawer is full of troll bones, hobgoblin brains and other assorted oddities.

Part 2 - I have two more things to share that KarenLouiseM sent me!
A sweet skeleton with a bright red heart.

And an ornament featuring a cage full of bats.

Opening this package made me feel like it was the 13 days of Halloween, so many fabulous spooky things.  I am stoked to use the mini bits in some of my own miniatures.  Thank you so much, you are awesome!

Im so glad it arrived mostly intact!   Heres a pic of the apothecary with all the stuff in it and before post office!

(Also, the pumpkin was on top of the costume box - but, if you have other plans, go for it!  And the headstones in that are from the haunted mansion as well  Grin).

That is awesome, and so glad to know those weren't all extras because I was feeling swap anxiety that I hadn't sent enough, lol.

Nothing was broken, just a few things relocated in the box.  I am happy for the completely assembled photo so I can put everything in its place again.  I will PM you about the tiny pumpkin, I need some of those in my life!  Thank you again!

I received from CDEeeek!

Here is all the goodies together:

I received a card filled with wonderful Halloween-y papers, a tube of buttons, a Haunted Mansion themed wall hanging and a Madame Leota ornament! So fun!

A close up of the wall hanging (sorry it's sideways)


And of Madame Leota herself. She 'floats' as an ornament or rests on her table.


Thank you CDEeeek!

I received my package from whatthepuck!



Check out the really cool marbling on the Moon, or Sun, or Jupiter? Wink It's so nifty and sciencey! And I've been on a dinosaur kick lately, so I adore the skeleton she chose to adorn this art!
Also met with approval by another orange connoisseur:



Thank you!

I wish I could participate in swaps (just too busy with home and family these days) but at least I get to see all the goodies!   Cheesy

What an awesome gallery! Talk about eye candy!

I received from Whistley and have to say candidly, I was spoiled. Check out the loot!
First off, this is how everything was wrapped -- so pretty and fun! Cheesy


Next is this super cool table runner! It feels very New Orleans to me, which is awesome as that's one of my favorite places ever. Cheesy


Here's a look at everything as I unwrapped -- check out the pumpkin guy and the jar of whimsies!


He brought me candy. Cheesy


How clever is this?


Thank you Whistley for such a wonderful swap! I love everything!

Ok I  love so many things on the gallery but i have to give a huge shout out to SonjaBoo who once again has spoiled me rotten. Let me preface by saying that one of her creations from a previous swap has been the centerpiece oh my decoration for Halloween for several years and is admired by all who see it. So this year should have even more. I could have SonjaBoo decorate my whole house,she's  that talented. So wwithout further ado, some pics. Excuse the cathair there is no stopping it.
