My Goblins and The Secret Sinister Sister Swap

Here are 3 of my little trick or treaters. Mallory was Sally Stitch which is a character that has been on the tv show Ghost Whisperer, Ezie is a skeleton ghosty scary looking guy, and Jace is himself, The Red Ranger. It was in the 50's but rained the whole time we were trick or treating. It was still fun and the kids did great! We all had fun and have been on a sugar high ever since!

I was in Genevieve's Secret Witches Sister Swap and my partner was Vivian. Vivian's package almost made me cry. I had two of the most amazing swap packages in one week. I feel so spoiled and my living room is very Halloweenish with last years and this years swap packages.

This is what the box looked like when I started. I was beginning to think it was bottomless....

I just kept pulling little packages out.

Viv made this gorgeous witch doll. OMG! I literally almost cried. I had no idea that Viv made such nice dolls. She is very proudly displayed in a special spot in the living room.

Then there was all these wonderful goodies. A Halloween idea book and magnet, candy, ribbon, a scarecrow bag, a yummy smelling pumpkin candle, a couple of ornaments and the cutest dressed skeleton. OMG! I have so many ideas running through my head for next year after receiving this package!

I sent Vivian a duplicate package to what I sent to Debbie for the other Halloween swap.

Here are the two Kitty's together.

I thought they were pretty cute......until I received the witches from Debbie and Viv.
I am knew to making dolls.....and well, they definitely are not!
I can't wait to make some more dolls and get more creative.
I have a lot of room to grow that's for sure.

Thanks to the kids and Earl for a great Halloween.
Thank you to Genevieve, Samantha and Ramona for hosting such fun swaps.
and finally
to Debbie and Vivian for being such wonderful swap partners.
