No Tricks, ALL Treats!

Now it's time to show off what I received in the Handmade Halloween Swap from my creative, talented friend, Kimberly of
ArtJoyStuff.The altered matchbox is a gift in itself, so hauntingly beautiful. And she made it so I can use it as a hanging ornament! All of these Halloween treasures are exquisitely handcrafted and now displayed throughout my home. Thank you again Kimberly!
If you enjoy one of a kind Halloween art you really need to take a look at what's being made and swapped in my flickr group.
Here's just a little taste....
Wonderful Witch Hat by Mercedes

Perfect Picks by Jean

A most awesome matchbox vignette by Anna

You may even be inspired to sign up for the Secret Santa Swap. There's plenty of time to put a festive holiday swap together and enjoy the countdown opening your tiny packages from December 1st until Christmas Day!

I have a couple of other treats to share, having been the lucky winner of two blog giveaways recently.
Sharon of Plumrose Lane has some of the most fabulous graphic designs. Her blog is loaded with tutorials and freebies, and her etsy offers a spectacular array of very reasonably priced designs. She also hosts a monthly giveaway and I was the winner for September! I haven't used my gift certificate yet but I think I'll be showing off a little Plumrose Lane for the holidays!

This adorable wall hanging
is a win from my new blog friend Cyn. I hope you'll stop by her place for a visit and check out her new announcement.
