Halloween Swap: Black Cats & Pumpkins, Ideas..

The Halloween Swap poster/ banner...

A Rabbit doll and painting by Mud-cakes , Laura Meseroll [a lovely lady and awesome paintings!], some of last year's Halloween decorations..

Last year's Halloween table/wall decorations in my kitchen/ dining room..Old and new pieces..

A 8x10 collage made of art papers, seed catalogs, stamps, a old paper doll, German embossed scraps etc. Heavily antiqued and crackled.

Another Bethany Lowe Piece from my Licensed Halloween Collection.

A original papier mache 'Halloween Cat' that will be for sale on: Glitter & Grunge: Sept. 1st.

A old German Halloween embossed cardboard decoration.

Been thinking about the up coming Halloween Swap..So many have emailed and sent comments about it!

Here's some info and ideas...First you must have a 'Blog' and 'Post your swap items you made & received on your blog'..The Swap is a 'Pumpkin and/or a Black Cat'..

Was thinking about how much Everyone enjoyed doing Jenny's 'Bit & Pieces Collage' Wouldn't a Halloween picture/collage be cool?! In a 3 squares across and 3 squares down, sort of 666, but only 333..heehee..Sign up ends Sept. 10th' Items will be due Sept. 20th this give's everyone plenty of time to think about it..

So what do you think?? Would a 'open anything goes' as long as its a cat or pumpkin, be prefered? Swap partners will be paired in the order I receive their email. You must send me your email, blog link and mailing address and will be forwarded to your partner.and I will take the last email as my partner. Sign-up will be thru my email only.

I get so excited about the fall coming quickly when I look at your items. Fall is my favorite season. I could never live with out the colored leaves. I feel sorry for the people that only have palm trees. Teehee.
