I'm back from Outer Space

I'm back from my very long road trip that seemed like outer space, I was gone so long. 12 days in all! I haven't been away that long since our honeymoon to Italy 6 years ago. I will definitely post those pictures from our visit to beautiful Virginia and Indiana with Stink Bone Jones in a car for 18 hours there and back. Wow!!

I would love to share my swap photos with you from Jean Knee. She sent me such wonderful things! She has a thing for skeletons and I just adore my little skeleton in his wonderful halloween party hat. His ruffly collar rocks too!



I adore my skeleton head box full of black glitter and sparkle! Jean Knee also makes the cutest cupcake picks! I cannot wait to use these!








Here are more pictures of my wonderful goodies. She made that cute adorable bag with crepe paper! She also ordered the little treat bags and filled them with lovely tags she made and some from my very favorite Etsy shop, one ripe peach



My favorite thing she sent is the reason for the swap. A Halloween Sign that hangs on my mirror! Thanks jean knee, I love it!



I put one of the super cute crepe paper flowers on top of my store bought pumpkin. I painted black polka dots on my pumpkin (an idea from Paula Dean) and voila!




I sent her a bunch of goodies! I do not have pictures of them all but hope she posts them for me. I did manage to get a picture of the sign I sent her. I bought the frame at Hobby Lobby. Decoupodged orange paper to the glass. Painted black polka dots. Glittered the outside black. Then, I glued this little cat from Hobby Lobby to the center. Made a little black tulle ballerina skirt and added orange forget-me- nots to the center. Ordered the spooky tag from my other favorite shop Caramelos and glittered it as well with orange glitter. Added a big sparkly vintage black button to the center and some black velvet bows to the bottom. I really love how it turned out!

Jean Knee is so talented and you got some awesome decorations and treats in the Swap! The skeletons are a hoot~real smile makers and so creative!
Your creation is so imaginative and the frame is gorgeous! Love how you added the cat and all the pretty embellishments.
You both are such talented artists!
Happy Hallowe'en!
