Swap Pictures...and a Foxy Fox for Halloween!

A Foxy looking Fox, painted by my wonderful neighbor, Sandra. This is Larissa. She wore her fox tail from the MD. Renaissance Festival, and foxy looking ears. Doesn't she look Fabulous? She is totally transformed. I must say that it is Sandra's make-up work that was the icing on the cake!

Shadow box swap w/Valarie of Glittery Daze and Nights. But since I was late, she may not yet have received it. I wish I had better pictures. It says, "Oh, My! Which pumpkin should I choose for the Pumpkin Ball?" There is only one that is special. It is all glittery and has a black kitty on it. The black glitter does not show so well here, but I feel that it makes the shadow box pop!
This is the pin-keep swap w/Lori from Lady in Red. This is made from vintage corduroy and vintage, darling, crocheted, black buttons that polka dot the pin keep. She's an angel turned into a Halloween angel. Both the angel and the shadow box gal were made in Occupied Japan. I added the Halloween hats, then glazed them. (Just click to get a larger view.)

This has wool felt leaves and pins made from vintage buttons,etc, w/flower petal backgrounds.

So I am sooo late in posting these swap pictures. I joined Vivian's (Viv Out on a Whim) Halloween swaps- both of them! This, of course, was quite a while ago. Nevertheless, I didn't realize how much I would be working, which delayed my final swaps.

Hope they enjoy them! I just recently got my swap from Lori and it is sooo very fabulous!!!!, but I have yet to take pictures.

Getting ready for my Winter Wonderland Artisan Home Show w/Bake Sale to benefit my church, St. Catherine's. The baked goodies are so luscious, and this sale has been a success for 2 years, since it's inception. I also am getting ready for Laura Turner's show in Taneytown at Frizellburg Antiques. So much to do. I decided against the Kris Kringle show this year. I really did want to do it, and I know that customers will be looking for me there, but I wanted to have the Home Show at the same time as the open studio tour in our area. There will be so many holiday open houses the weekend before Thanksgiving.

Also, going for another p/t job to add to my roster of 4, count them, 4 p/t jobs that I am working. And,...I am submitting another application to the local community college for Coordinator of Campus Volunteers. Out of breath yet??? hahaha

I think that it is right up my alley. Hope I get a shoe in the door for an interview. These days, things are so impersonal via email. Don't know if it is one of those positions where they have their person, but have to post the job anyway. Wish me luck. When I took the tour groups around the world, I always said that if I couldn't do it, nobody could. That is the attitude that I held as I escorted , coordinated, organized a diverse spectrum of personalities around the world for continuing education credits.

Which swap do you like the best? ...Have a good nite.:)

I love them both, but I think the pin keep is my favorite! Very sweet!
