Sweet & Sinister Swap

I joined the Sweet & Sinister Swap hosted by Artsy Mama and I am so glad I did! I had a fabulous partner and absolutely NO swap angst what so ever. This was such a fun swap to put together and that's mainly because Sid, my fabulous partner, is so kind and warm and open that it was a joy to create for her.

As Sid has received her package from me I thought I would share what I sent.

Look! I sewed something. The doll on the right is Betty Boo and I made her AND her clothes all by myself. She is a sweet Halloween poppet and I think she came out pretty good even though her head is a little flat. ;) The bag on the left is knit with Patons Brilliant and filled with goodies.

Inside the Black Magic Bag are two mini "Books of Wisdom" - Arthurian Wisdom and Celtic Wisdom both of which are things Sid mentioned she likes. Also included are some fun Halloween themed cocktail umbrellas and a package of vintage Halloween cupcake picks.

I found these great flocked masks at the dollar store! I added a little glitter, some ribbon and some feathers and leaves.

There are so many great Halloween decorations out there that it was tough to choose! I included a fun Jersey Devil post card, a black hobnail "cauldron" candle holder with a vanilla cupcake scented Yankee candle, paper broom ornament, glittery "beware" sign and a fun marabou bat wearing a glittered mask.

And finally a fun paper rosette pin for Sid to wear on Halloween when she is teaching. This came out very well, I think I'll make a few more for the shop perhaps?

This was a great swap and I just can't wait for Sid's package to arrive. It's winging it's way to me as we speak! You can check out the other swap goodies at this Flickr group site.
