First of all, I finally got health insurance and I get to go to the Doctor's today and hopefully get an antibiotic for my sinus infection!!! I'm so tired of not feeling good and I can't wait to get something to take care of this!!!!

Okay, here's what I sent to Kelley for the Witches Cupboard that Sarah hosted. Angela had sent a box of craft stuff to use and their was this wooden box in there. I painted it black, glued on glitter, spray painted it black and then put floor wax on it to keep the glitter from falling off. It turned out really pretty!! The picture isn't to good because it's been so overcast here and my camera likes sunshine. Anyway, I hope Kelley likes this little Witches Treasure Box. I filled it with Halloween goodies, some candies, Halloween ribbon and buttons.

Here is the package. I also made her a dead girl from the 70's. She has leggings on and a little long shirt with a bow in her hair. I added a black rose and I forgot to take a pic of the little tombstone I bought her too.

This is what I sent to Gloria for the Magic Wand Swap that Genevieve hosted. I made the wand, a tote bag that has fairies on it holding magic wands and a fairy shadow box.

I hope Kelley and Gloria like their swap items!! They were fun to make!

yea!!!! you go get yourself a z-pack!!!! lol Thats what I always have to get for my sinus infections, it works wonders!!! =] I also like to sit over a boil of very hot water, put a few drops of peppermint oil in it and cover my face with a towel. It feels soooooo good and it does a double duty of opening your pores!!! lol Hope you feel better!!!! BTW, I love the witches box!!!!! =]

I'm so glad you're feeling good enough to finish your swaps! I'm still trying to catch up from when I was sick. I LOVE the stuff you made for Kelly's Magic wand present! (can you blame me? you know how I am with my love of fairies!)

I am so glad that your life is not so sucky anymore and that you are back to doing wonderful things! I just received some swap things from my first apron swap, I was amazed@!
Me too on the sinus thing, I just can't shake it, but I am so glad you have insurance and can see the doctor!
I am praying today that I do not get called into work so I can have a day of catch up!
Tossing smiles and hugs your way!

Oh Sherry!
What a nice surprise to find after being gone for a week. A very scary, bootiful wonderfully cool swap package from YOU! How fun is everthing, and I love the treasure box...I am impressed! Thank you from the bottom of my my skeleton and heart. I hope you are feeling better. Take care!!!
P.S. the skeleton reminds me a bit of Madonna in her 70's days. Teehee
