Holy Halloween! After a few unexpected delays - giving birth to Bigfoot, my husband going into the hospital, the zombie apocalypse - I was finally able to open all of my reap! Gatorgirl, you are phenomenal! I've never received so many extraordinary gifts! The only problem is that I can't get the pictures to arrach!
You did say scary, so I hope the "scarecorpse" for your pumpkin patch isn't too scary for you ---and you can always make him less scary by letting him talk. I liked how he came out enough that I am making another one for our pumpkin patch too 🎃 Sorry if he still had the "scent" of gellstain on him! I had the last day to ship wrong in my head so I had to ship him before he had enough time to completely air out. Trust me, by the time you put him away after Halloween, you won't be able to smell it anymore!

So,I never heard from my victim and it's been a week. She logged on to do likes & dislikes list, then disappeared for another a month. Logged on the other day, but didn't post pictures, or answer my PM about did you get it, did anything break? So I'd like to post pictures of what I sent her. I'm not shaming anyone, I won't name her, maybe she didn't know a red dot on your picture means you have a message, which means she never got her victims address. I haven't seen her name as "my reaper" either. So anyway, about 3 weeks ago, I sent this teaser:

She likes skulls, fortune telling items, & skelli animals.

This is a fleece blanket I made.
And then this is the one I really struggled with. I went through several designs before settling on this one

It lights up too!

Then I included something from my state.(some of us used to do that a while back) A snowflake ornament.

So, maybe the other crafters here have a better way of doing the crystal ball. I watched some you tube tutorials, & looked at the crystal ball thread on this forum. I couldn't find a good base for it. That's what I would change next time. I tried candle holders, insense burners, nothing fit quite right, so I used florist block, then covered it in fabric. I had fun making these things, & learned a lot actually.
Love the card and the crystal ball is awesome. The skelly blanket is adorable!

How odd! That sort of works out....

OMG! That is an amazing reap! Your victim is a lucky lady indeed. Thank you for sharing the photos. I love everything you sent. And that teaser is amazing. I would frame if I was your victim.

Lady Arsenic, I’m so sorry about your victim. Although you haven’t heard from her, I am sure she is enjoying those wonderful gifts. I love the crystal ball especially. I can’t see the bottom part though. Do you another picture? I’m trying to get ideas and I love that.

Bethene, what great gifts, and for a very deserving person. That pumpkin is very cool! Great job on that!

No, I didn't get a picture of the bottom. I just pushed skellie hands into a rectangular florist's block (that green styrofoam stuff)added some fairy lights, then wrapped it in black fabric like your wrapping a present, hot gluing as I went. Then did a layer of tulle so it looked a little more exciting.

Dang it Br1mston3, You've been waiting a couple days now, haven't you? I do remember someone posting that they were going away for the weekend, but someone would be around to take care of any packages that arrived. Here's to hoping its your victim!

I will message 3 victims to see what's what.
We do have a reaper that is in the hospital with pneumonia. Her hubby messaged me...the gift box is almost ready but he's not sure how to do it....I did contact the victim.

There are several boxes in route yet...n
But if you haven't received one yet ..let me know. We will look into it

Oh no! I hope whoever it is is doing better. Pneumonia is no joke 😬
