Box O Fun!

I signed up for my first ever blog swap. It was hosted by Sarah at Makin Projiks.  I had to make 13 ornaments and I got 13 different ones back. I decided to make haunted houses. I bought unfinished wood bird houses and went to work. (Sorry forgot the before pic) here's how they turned out
They were fun to make but I was over it after number 13. Last week I got my box in the mail full of 13 fun ornaments!
It was like Christmas! And speaking of, I would be perfectly happy with all vintage Christmas presents (hint, hint, family) anyway, I was truly amazed at all the talented ladies out there! Here'sa shot of all of them
Such a fantastic variety. Here's some close ups
Kim at Musings from Kim K made these awesome spun head girls

Sarah made (and sewed!) these cute stuffed pumpkins. The girl has some mad sewing skills. Her quilts are serious works of art 

I happen to love all things owl and black cat so these cute metal ornaments were perfect! From Michelle and Ashley at The Tattered Quilt Cottage

Beth (I don't think she has a blog) is a genius with paper. Check out these awesome cards!

Gail at Crafty Little Beana made these oh so cute pumpkin people. Love that paper hat!

Michaele at Twigs and Tulle made these fantastic witch tags. I love it, totally remind me of the wicked witch of the west!
Tiny little folded book pages make the cutest pumpkins! From Megan.
I love decorating with skulls at Halloween and these clay ones made by Jane fit in nicely, check out the details!
Sheryl made some adorable owls. Have I mentioned my owl obsession?
Colleen made these cute felt pumpkins. Love the polka dot leaf!

Beth made these awesome skeletons in a tiny graveyard. These were my kids favorite! 
Last but not least were these clever bats made from clothes pins! I especially love their tiny plaid vests, so cute!
I really enjoyed this swap and would definitely do another one. Hopefully Sarah will do a Christmas one, I'm in!


  1. The next swap is for Valentine's day! We do sign ups the very first week of January, around jan 2 or 3rd. :)

  2. This is the very first time that I haven't done this swap. I'm a regular for the Heart to Heart though. It's always so much fun getting a box full of happiness.

  3. If someone hosts a Christmas one, can I be in it???
