I had such a blast putting together a Halloween package for Michele, my partner in Kari's Sweet & Sinister Swap!!! I met Michele a few years ago when she signed up for one of my swaps, and got to meet her in person last year at Silver Bella. She is a fabulous artist, and one of the sweetest people I have ever met!
I made her this owl on a pedestal. I really loved how it turned out, but was biting my nails for 3 days that it would arrive to her in one piece!!! What was I thinking with all that glass!?!?!? In the end, it did arrive safe and sound! Phew.
This was definitely one of my most favorite things I've ever made! I love these little owls. They were a vintage find and I only have a few left. (Sorry about the glare in the photos!)
I also made her this necklace using recycled vintage beads and an old brooch. I had originally made it in black beads, but then I thought that she could maybe wear it to the Vintage Prom this year at Silver Bella, so I switched the beads to the pearls.
A close-up of the necklace.
Here is most of the loot that I sent her. I also added a paper flower kit and some Halloween cookie cutters, and some art supplies.
Don' you just love this plate?!?!? I got it at Homegoods! They also had dinner plates, bowls, and mugs. I may need to go back and get myself a set for Halloween!
