13 Days of Halloween Swap

One of the nice things about the internet is meeting like-minded folks from around the world, which during the normal course of events you would never have the chance to meet.

For me one of these people is my friend Vany from Germany - we both have a love for all things creepy and zombie and crafty.

A couple of years back we did a 13 Days of Halloween Swap via Craftster (second time we were randomly paired up for a craftster craft swap) and this year we decided to do a mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap.

The idea works a little like an advent calendar, you open one package on each of the 13 days leading up to Halloween!

I have decided to share with you all the amazing things Vany sent me for Halloween - I have opened two packages so far and both have been AMAZING - I think Vany is one of the most talented crafters I know.

DAY ONE

Look at how Vany wrapped up each day - complete with a little bow and recycled newspaper packaging. Love it!
Here's my day one present - a zombie glasses case which is fabulous and useful as I REALLY needed a new glasses case (you folks only see me with my contact in but I have worn glasses since I was 8).
I love the note inside the case - it made me giggle!

DAY TWO

For day two I received this wee zombie tissue holder - which I like a whole bunch.

She even added Hello Kitty tissues as she knows how much I love HK!

Vany also included a few extras in the package - like this cupcake glitter, which is really cute.

I'll keep you all up to date with the other goodies from the package as I count down to Halloween.

Omg I've always wanted to do one of these swaps on craftster but was intimidated by the commitment. I looove the eye glass case so much, I need a new one too!

@Jamie - It is a lot of work but its worth it! Vany and I are old crafting friends so that makes it a little easier - you know you won't get stood up or just get rubbish:P
