I've sent all partner information out today, please confirm! Now to get us in the mood....here is something my brother sent LAST YEAR that I've been dying to share! Enjoy!!!! A VERY ZOMBIE HOLIDAY...turn on the speakers for this "instructional" video!
It's that time of year again! I'm hosting my annual Zombie Doll Swap! Grab the badge and spread the word!!! This year's theme: " EMPLOYABLE ZOMBIES!"
This swap will make you look at your waitress, repairman, pool boy, doctor, personal trainer, banker and hairdresser (this list could get seriously long) in a whole new light! Just thinking of a zombie with a name tag on cracks me up for some reason. Maybe you have a co-worker you'd like to turn in to a zombie for some reason....well, here's your chance!
Here is what we are swapping:
You will create one "EMPLOYABLE" zombie doll for your partner and then add a minimum of 3 tuck ins to round out the package. Please give your zombie doll a NAME TAG of some kind. *The add ins need not be handmade. They can be purchased, thrifted, re gifted, etc as long as they are clean and undamaged.
This is a USA swap only. The sign up close date is August 11th so I can announce partners the following week. I retain the right to close the swap early if I choose. If interested, please don't wait to join up. Ship date is September 22nd so the dolls can arrive to their new home by the 1st week of October.
If you want to join, leave a comment here and then email me at valpowery(at) yahoo(dot)com with the answers to these questions: 1. Name and address 2. List of 3 occupations for your partner to choose (one) from. 3. Colors you decorate with for Halloween 4. Choose either "creepy" or "cute" style 5. List what you decorate with at Halloween 6. List any things you collect or hobbies you have for "tuck in" ideas. Please read:
My swaps are made to encourage creativity, not bust the bank. That being said, your package should equate to about 30 bucks before shipping. Please create a zombie doll that you feel certain your partner will adore. Also, be considerate when wrapping items for shipping. When shipping, I suggest using tracking. If the doll does not arrive within 10 business days, you will be responsible for making and sending a NEW zombie doll package. Any flakers will be banned from future swaps.
Kerry is truly a zombie artist.... meet Marcie, Queen of the Mardi Gras!
The details are stunning... from her eyeballs, to her exposed brain and little peg leg...
I love her! And the most adorable "tuck ins" including this hand made bag -- can't wait to have my produce loaded into this at the farmer's market! The details on the packaging were perfect - bows tied with little bones and the brain mold container....
Thank you so very much, Kerry - - I adore your talent! She is zombie perfection and will hold a place of honor on my mantel!
