Swap Fun

I joined the Witches Cupboard Swap hosted by Yarnigras. Nature Girl and I had fun this morning starting our items for the witches cupboard. We used these old canning jars I salvaged from an auction last year. I got a whole box for 50 cents. We found tiny skulls, stretchy rats, sticky eyeballs mixed with stones, skeleton hands to fill the jars. We also found a little black crow and a styrofoam skull to add to the cupboard. This is turning out to be so much fun! Nature Girl wants to make her own witch's cupboard in her bedroom for Halloween. She has a tiny skull, a stretchy rat and a black crow to use as a start. Once the witches cupboard swap package arrives I know I'll be sharing some of those items too. She's already asking to pull out all the Halloween decorations. I think we'll wait another week. I have another idea up my sleeve for the Witches Cupboard Swap. I just need time to make it but alas it's Sunday night and my school work calls.

This is Nature Girl with the package she mailed off in the Little People Back to School Swap. Her partner loves music so we went with a musical theme. We included a CD by a local artist Ben Rudnick and Friends. It's a great kids album. You can check it out here.

Here's another view of the package. We included a book, a clown whistle, directions for making your own instruments, an elephant plush because you need a friend to share your music with and a pumpkin bag with a few goodies for our partners mom.

This is the package Nature Girl received. She received shells, pencils, colored pencils, mini notebooks and a set of 6 card games. She's had lots of fun with her goodies. Thank you Zoey!

As you can see swap mail makes Nature Girl happy! She loves it when a packages arrive! Here she is hugging the box.
