Halloween Swap

Now and then, I like to visit Craftster and look at other people’s projects and occasionally post mine. Recently, I found a couple of swaps that sounded fun to me, so I signed up! One of them was a Mini Halloween Swap. We were supposed to send two “medium” and two “small” crafted items to our partners.

My partner Marci made this adorable scarecrow wreath for my door.

But when I close my glass door, its face gets smashed and it did NOT like that. So now he lives on the little flag pole holder, where he is much more comfy.

Then she decided to go crazy for me with an incredibly time-consuming project… a gorgeous and snuggly knitted scarf! I know how to knit but don’t have the patience for it, so I know how much work went into it. I love the way it feels, and it even has pockets for my hands! My yard scarecrow wanted to model the scarf for you, but he does NOT get to keep it!

Look at the pretty leafy cable design!

Marci also sent me a delicious-smelling jar of mulling spices. I’m so excited to try them out! I may go pick up some apple juice later today.

This is what I sent to Marci.
A jack-o-lantern zipper pouch:

Some embroidered Jack Skellington coasters (she loves Nightmare Before Christmas):

Halloween-y pennant flags (or garland) to decorate with:

And a jack-o-lantern apron (I couldn’t not do an apron):
