Sweet & Sinister Swap Goodies

I received my wonderful Sweet & Sinister goodies from my uber talented partner Monica! Above is one of my favorites, oh heck, they are all my favorites! This is a wand.


Monica remembered that my birthday is in October and made me this precious birthday altered bingo card.


How did she know that I love glitter?! Okay, I guess we all love glitter! This is a super sweet Boo sign full of yummy black glitter and silver glittered letters.

A group shot of some fabulous items including special Halloween truffles, cat decor, pumpkin plate, doilies, lace and pearl trims, Boo lollipop, and more glitter in the form of a Spooky sign.



Love this black glitter! Love the above glittered stars!



A gorgeous treat cone with a K initial bottle cap and yummy candy inside!

Here are the items I sent Monica. Great minds think alike - I also made her a wand.

Had to get a box in there - I loved this spider that I found and realized I had the web paper.

A tag for the goodie basket.


A journal for family memories.

A vintage pumpkin image transformed into a holiday necklace.


BOO! Scared ya - didn't I?

Monica has a sweet tooth as well so I got in some candy.

A Halloween crown.

A bottle of glitter with a vintage Halloween image.



Here is a better photo of the goodie basket I made for her two kids.
Special thanks to Artsy Mama for hosting this wonderful swap and for the fabulous theme!
