    My first package is from KosmicGirl. YOur wrapping was super cute, way better than mine, and I love the cute little stickers you used on the colorful envelopes. Especially that little wolf man!

    Anna sent me what smells like delicious coffee beans and yes I am totally going to do the cold brew, do it all the time. The Nessie tacks are so funny and you probably don't know but we have a legend around here about a monster in Lake Champlain. So these tacks won't be Nessie but Champ, perfect. The dancing Frank doll has a ton of character. You make awesome dolls! The blue witch is super sweet and right up my alley, thank you. The two atcs are great. Can you all squint and look really closely at the two pumpkin head folks in front of the gravestone? Anna called the card "The Young Prince". He's got a crown with a perfect teeny bat on it. And the skeletal hand is AMAZing! It looks almost alive. I can't believe the detailing you put into the Autumn Spirit atc, so special. You totally spoiled me Anna, thank you!

    My second package is from Zhouzhou.

    Sandra also killed it on the wrapping. Love the little stamped paper. Check out the delicate pumpkin drawing on the envelope, it's SO PRETTY!! And cats cause you all know I love cats Thank you.

    Top left did you make that box holding a ton of atc blanks? What a fun idea. And I can be a bit more organized
    Bottom left is a little opening display for moos and the moos can be removed. THis is SO cool, never saw anything like it. I love the moos. That teeny cat by the witch, oh man, how cute is that?!
    Oops picture doesn't have a cool wood/glass beaded bracelet cause I'm already wearing it, thank you. I love bracelets! I'm a bracelet junkie!
    The skull bead is on a cool pendant necklace. Love love so perfect for me!
    A pink unicorn doll. Yep. I squeeled when I saw this. You know I love your horses. You made me the ultimate, a pink unicorn doll. I am thrilled!
    Mints in a Ouija tin are super fun! Rooibos tea, my fave
    As if that's not enough you also made me a trick or treating anteater atc, how funny. Love that idea! And a Mushroom vampire dude who looks to be in a crabby mood. Absolutely wonderful. You spoiled me too and I thank you for making this so much fun!!

    Omg, I've been away for the last few weeks and missed out on... well, basically everything! Artathon, drawlloween, the awesomeness in this thread, oh my goodness! There is so much drool-worthy art here, I can't begin to mention all of it!

    Cat, I am so happy you liked your gifts, and I wasn't bothered by you knowing that I was your partner at all! There was so much stuff on your wishlist, I think it was easy enough to surprise you And it would be a total shame if you weren't allowed to play along!

    Default Boooooo!!!

    I have been far away for a number of weeks and just came home to Oregon-YAY! and to be greeted by two very special packages is a very fine thing!

    First package was from Rene Kunert.
    A beautiful Lunar Moth Doll! Atcs a moth and a skelly girl which I adore. A painting of entwined seahorses and yummy Belgian Dark Chocolate.
    The second surprise package from Silversweet.
    WOW, Blew me away with the Raven wall hanging, complete with hardware!, The black feather ink pen is to die for with the bottle of black ink which I can't wait to try out. A wonderful Jack-o-lantern cover to a handmade folding book, and an antique page from an old poetry book of THE RAVEN! Oh, and a bar of NOIR chocolate.

    Thank you to both very talented artists. I am grateful and thrilled to have these wonderful creations from your heart to mine.
    Your artwork will be well displayed in my studio and the chocolates... well, I plan to hide out with the skeletons in my closet to gnaw away at them in complete selfish joy.
    May the veil open to all on Hallow's eve. Trick or Treat!

    PS Apology to Silversweet...I cannot load two photos! Trying.

    Holly, is the photo too large? Try making it a bit smaller memory-wise.

    Beautiful gifts for Holly, Rene!

    It's a box! It was packed with candy goodies! Sweetarts, skittles, and some little marshmallow mice, but I couldn't eat those... mice scare me hahaha! Under the goodies, there was "Boo! Treats for you" written with a cute little ghost. Such an awesome box!

    I received my gorgeous and wonderful package from Noodlerabbit! I got some awesome pens, some chocolate truffles I'm super looking forward to trying, a pile of awesome patterned papers, 2 great paintings and 2 great ATC's. Not gonna lie, if my corgi's allowed me to put them in costumes, I would so want to dress them up like this! Thank you so much for the awesomeness!

    I got a fantastic gift from our wonderful hostess this Friday! Thank you for the amazing gift Cat! It was a much needed fabulous end to a somewhat horrible week. And boy, did I get spoiled rotten!

    First, there was a gorgeous chunky canvas painting of Wednesday Addams with a creepy crawly spider. A catpratt skull! And a skull bookmark! I always love your sugar skulls, and these two are perfect! The "when cheese goes bad" magnet made me laugh ; did I ever tell anyone here of my cheese obsession?!? Cheeeeeeeese......
    There was a lovely bracelet with spiderweb-y beads, three coloured microns! (Yayy!), a pencil sharpener, some dark chocolate that probably won't survive this weekend and a cute little mouse! AND! A severed doll head that managed to freak me out big time! Hubby was watching me open everything. "I think you forgot something in the last wrapping" he says, and i reach in and grab something small and hairy and freaked out and threw it on the floor! Lol! If the kids at work knew that doll parts scare the living daylight out of me I would have a hard time at work indeed...

    Thanks again for the fantastic gift Cat! And hubby thanks you for the doll head laugh he got!

    Edit: I completely forgot to put something in the picture! There were two blank canvases in there as well! A postcard sized one, and a super chunky one! And the cutest fish stickers and a cool wine bottle label reading "fresh blood" Exciting!
