With Halloween just a day away, I figured it was time to share the wonderful goodies that I received in the Sweet & Sinister Swap. This is the third year I've played in Kari's wonderful swap, and it always promises to be fabulous!
This year I was partnered with Carola from Germany. She did SUCH an amazing job! Everything was packaged SO beautifully, all in black and white with spooky silhouettes. Waaaaaay too pretty to open!
Inside this gorgeous packaging was an owl pendant that Carola soldered, as well as some dangling prisms. And this amazing set of vintage jewelry!!!
She sent a ton of other goodies as well! Thick and wonderful crepe paper, lots of paper decorations, a handmade mask, magazines, ribbon, ephemera, framed silhouettes, a vintage candlestick... SUCH a wonderful swap! Thank you so much, Carola! You went above and beyond what I imagined! :)
Here are some of the handmade goodies that I sent her. I altered a paper mache egg in a Halloween theme and filled it with artsy goodies. It turned out pretty cute, but difficult to photograph. The vintage paper circle look like eyeballs. Heehee.
I also embellished a little frame ornament. This black and white bracelet was a lot of fun to make... I need to make one for myself!
And some purchased goodies; a ceramic pumpkin, a little feather tree, and spooky crow.
I am off to my Little One's school party (wearing the lovely owl necklace that Carol sent)!
Back tomorrow with some gorgeous Halloween ornaments from some bloggy friends!
