Here is the continuation of Halloween 2008 Swap hosted by Amy of Four Sisters in a Cottage. The following items were what I received from my terrific YOUNG partner (she is a mere babe ~ only 19, and soooo very talented!) Lindsey of Two Crazy Crafters.

She stamped the cutest Halloween card for me & signed it "Bugs & Hisses"!!

I just love this vintage look tussie mussie ~ and it was just full of the yummiest candy corn taffy ever (WAS full is the operative phrase here!). I just love the scaredy cat graphic on it! And Lindsey even sent me my very favorite Halloween graphic on a little wooden tag ~ see the pic of the little frightened kids ~ I sent her that EXACT same graphic on a tag I made for her!! Do you feel the vibes, Lindsey?!?!

Isn't this chunky wood Spooky sign just perfect for me ~ I love the lettering style & the fact that it looks aged!

She even made me the most adorable Halloween Pumpkin Wand ~ complete with beautiful purple, orange, & black shimmery streamers. I think my granddaughter might just try to take off with this!!

And for my glittery, sparkly obsession, she included this Boo-tiful Ghost cupcake with the most heavenly pink glitter icing!!!

Love the Skeleton Jack's metal sign

And my very VERY favorite piece ~ one of Lindsey's specialties ~ a terrific piece of altered art ~ a wonderful Halloween collage!! Go check out the blog she shares with her mother here ~ they are quite a talented duo!!

Lindsey, thank you sooo very much for spoiling me with these great treats! I had such fun being your partner in this swap & will always think of you each time that I decorate with your lovely creations!! Thanks from my entire family for helping "Spook Up" our home this year!

Bugs & Hisses to you, too, sweet Lindsey!

I agree, the aged Spooky sign is great. And the "I do believe in spooks" is adorable. I can just hear the cowardly lion in my head as I read it.
