Halloween Swap Continued

Today I wanted to share two more Halloween Swap packages that have arrived! Did I mention I swapped with 11 people? The first one is a box from Kjerste. Check out that amazing little Halloween mouse she sewed up? Isn’t it a cutie? I am in love with the vintage cookie cutters, and can’t wait to bake something so I can use these sprinkles! The treats from Daiso are also fun since we do not have any of those shops in my area.

Next up is a box from Josie. I had to take two photos so you could see all the festive packaging she created, and then another so you can see all the treats. She handmade a bunch of little felted Halloween friends who I plan to add to my Halloween tree, sent some very yummy smelling soap. Her label said it was lemongrass, but it smells just like when you open up a box of fuity pebbles cereal. If you know me well you might know my favorite body spray of all time was a gummi bear scented spray, so fruity pebbles smelling soap is right up my alley.
She also handpainted tiny Halloween masks on that bracelet and sent a big generous cut of Cotton & Steel Halloween fabric, can’t wait to sew something fun with that.
Opening these festive packages each day has been such a treat, and I can’t believe how thoughtful and generous everyone is. Thank you so much to everyone who is taking part! More to come as surprise goodies arrive.

Halloween Swap

The Halloween Swap is well under way, and I’ve been getting some fun Halloween mail the past two days. In order of arrival here is what has come my way so far.
First to arrive was the package above with lots of cute vintage items. The ceramic witch is so fun, and the paper scarecrow bunting is just so darn adorable! I was excited to receive some treats from See’s candy too as we don’t have any nearby and I love how they have a vintage look to their items this year. This Halloween package was from Susie, and you can tell from her instagram that she loves Halloween too!
Next to arrive was a Halloween box from Niku. She sewed me up some little Halloween ornaments and a Halloween fabric bunting from some of her favorite Halloween fabrics. She also made some drawstring bags out of fun Halloween fabric and filled those with the candy and little Halloween treats you see pictured.
Today’s box came all the way from Susi in Germany. Besides creating this beautiful mini quilt, she created these detailed little Halloween hexies pictured to the right along the edge. I’ve gotta find an extra special way to use them. My son is taking German in school so I can’t wait to share the cookies & marzipan with him. I’m pretty sure he’s going to want the witch sign for his room too.
It’s been so much fun opening all these packages and I can’t thank my swap partners enough :) I’ll post once again when I receive more boxes. You can also check the hashtag #heidihalloweenswap over on instagram to see what other people are sending and receiving.
