Lots of eye candy for you today with a round-up of Halloween and Autumn swaps! These little tinies are from one of my Flickr groups, the Matchbox Monthly Swap 2011. In this group we sometimes have different partners than the one we send to. Jen, who lives in Australia, sent me this fabulous tiny matchbox for the Halloween theme...
|what creativity!! lovin' the tag and the box|
|notice the skull drawer pull?|
|lovelies inside....altered bones, stickers, fabric, images, and a handcrafted necklace!|
My recipient was Jan in the UK, and here's what I sent her..
|all wrapped up...a card, tiny surprise, wooden spoon, and coffin matchbox|
|matchbox treats inside...no tricks!|
I think I mentioned that I joined the Button Floozies, a wonderful button group hosted by the lovely Laurie . You must visit the blog at http://buttonfloozies.blogspot.com/ to see the most delicious eye candy for button junkies!
Recently, BF's had a "Fall in Love with Buttons" swap and my partner was dear friend Heather at Speckled Egg.
Heather is not only a marvelous artist, but has an online store that tempts me more than it should! LOL
Find Heather and her store here: http://speckled-egg.blogspot.com/
Look at this gorgeous tin she created for me!
|and all the gorgeous buttons!|

Well, dear friends, as you can see I've been one lucky girl this week! I'll have more to share next week, including a "sneak peek" at the lovelies I've been creating for my etsy store and an upcoming local fair.
Have a Spook-tacular Halloween! And if you take a close look at me in my blog banner, you'll see me at age 6 in the costume I wore for Halloween...a gift from my brother's godparents who were stationed in Japan at the time. I loved that kimono and accessories and wore it until I could no longer...then my girls wore it for Halloween. I still have the kimono and one sock! Thank you for your visit!!
