Halloween swap!

54 posts in this topic

I wasn't watching the time. Who is in for a Halloween swap? I will wait until Monday the 19th for people to sign up. Then it will only be 3 weeks to get your item to me (October 10) - not the usual longer time. Anything goes as long as it's Halloween or haunted or scary.

I, too, expressed an interest early on, but have a lot on my plate between now and Hallowe'en. I'd be happy to be a sounding board, too.

I'm always available for bouncing ideas off of.  Hallowe'en isn't my particular bowl of grits, but I enjoy making haunted scenes as much as the next person.

Halloween swap, hmm, so me, spooky Halloween or more like a fall kind of themed Halloween, ie less Gore and more pumpkin spice? 

Hugs

Pimpling spice?

Oh sheesh that danged autocorrect...meant pumpkin spice! Pimpling spice would make for an interesting mix in language translations, ie pimpling in Swedish is something one does with wine  opposed to take an odd sip so to speak...

Well in English it can refer to acne, which can be pretty frightening...

Ok, it's a GO! I won't start a new thread, we will just continue here. So far we have Anna, Kathie B, Katluck125, and Me. 4 people. Should be easy. I don't think I need to post rules or a time frame. Just knock them out and send them to me.

Make anything you want. Scale is 1:12.

I got to thinking of what my Haunted Hangout could use and the lightbulb went on. :D Simple, but effective. Already have supplies for 4 sets on hand, just need to assemble.

Deana, how much money should we send for postage?

Polyclay component about to go into the oven. If bake is successful, then it's assemble, glue, paint and done! Should be ready to hit the post office tomorrow.

Deana, please PM with your mailing address and the amount of return postage to be included. 

Thanks for honchoing this swap. :)

Paint drying. One part needs a coat of polyacrylic, then all will be ready to wrap and mail.

To the other participants --- don't forget to sign and date your items, please. :)

Thank you for the reminder Kathie! Hmmm, need to tweak mine a little as the prototype is in a "meh" state right now...
