Swapoween Goodies Reveal!

It's no surprise that I'm a bit addicted to blog swaps. I just love shopping for other people, and it's fun to get to know a new blogger in the process!! This time, I did a swap all about Halloween (cleverly titled Swapoween) which I found on Chaotic Goddess Swaps.

My partner this time was the lovely Krista from A Passion of Romance. Krista has even published some of her stories, which you can read about here.

Now...the goodies that Krista gave me! I mentioned when signing up for the swap that I liked Halloween candy and hosting parties, so a lot of my items are suitable to those two interests!

The above photo includes everything that I got in the swap. I think I made out quite well, don't you? Candy corn, fun table clothes, and a sweet card...just to name a few. I also took a few closer-up shots to try and differentiate some of the items I received.

I got some super soft black and orange socks which I will totally wear throughout the cold months! My feet are always cold. I also got some fun drink labels (the Pumpkin Potion is just one) which is adorable for a party. I also got some jello kits, some shot glasses, and lots of m and m's and mini milky way bars. Yay, chocolate!

Krista gave me a c.d. with some spooky background noises, which is adorable. I also got a caution sign and some Halloween sprinkles!
The boo sign above is too cute; I just need to find a place to hang it so it can be shown off in the house. I also got a really cool light that I can put in the USB drive on my computer to use as a light. I'm on the computer a lot at night, so I love this idea.


Thank you so much, Krista! I'm afraid that I already had my Halloween party this year (we did it early) but I'll be sure to use some of the decorations for Christmas. Yes, Christmas. My friend and I are hosting a Nightmare Before Christmas party so it will be half Halloween and half Christmas. The table clothes, for example, will be lots of fun!

You received so many amazing goodies! I have to agree, the Boo sign is so awesome! And I definitely need to by myself some fluffy socks for this cold weather too!

I love that you'll be doing a Halloween x Xmas party! What a great parcel :)

Nightmare before Christmas is a great theme for a party.

What a great selection of goodies. I always plan to join in one of these swaps but alas only seem to find out about them after the event. Plus there seem to be few Brits taking part and posting abroad can prove to be so expensive for both parties. Who knows perhaps I'll have to arrange a swap of my own and encourage British bloggers to join in.

How fun! I love the sign, the labels, the light....what a great package she sent you, and I'm tickled pink that you'll be using it for Christmas. :D
Thanks for joining us for this swap!
