I signed up for Garage Sale Deb's Fall and Halloween Swap. My partner was Linda Djokic. I received my package so quickly. Mine went out a bit later. It was supposed to arrive to her on Friday but she didn't get it. But, she found it stuck in the back of her mail box. She sent me a picture of it in the mail box with the polka dot packing tape. We still have til Sept. 30th to mail. We are way ahead of schedule. So here is what Sweet Linda sent me. Isn't this owl the cutest. I have a thing about owls and recently signed up to sell Origami Owl. Won't this be cute as a display when I have a show. She also sent these chocolates, yum yum. They are gone already. Also she sent some vintage goodies and the cutest lace. We were supposed to send our spoolie, some candy, and something small crafty related. Not tons of other things. Just simple, like me. I like simple. I didn't mean I was simple.
This is the spoolie that I sent. The spool is what the ghost is standing on. The ghost is just soft felt with a painted face wrapped around a wooden bead. I cut different fall papers for each side of the blocks and used Modge Podge. I distressed them with ink and added the stars the ceramic pumpkin and pom pom spider. Easy Peasy.
I added some fall party mix from my favorite candy store and a Stampin Up stamp set. This was a fun swap. Thanks Deb and Linda.I know I haven't had a swap for awhile. I am thinking of a Thanksgiving Swap and I will host the Cup of Comfort Swap again for December.
So stay tuned for details.
