5th Annual Halloween Swap/CLOSED

 It is time for my annual Halloween swap and I've decided to do zombies one last time.  I have SO many other ideas and REALLY NEED to move along but there is just something adorable about these little zombies with popped out eyes, missing limbs, exposed brains..........okay, so maybe I'm weird, but I love them and apparently a few of YOU do too! 

 So with those gruesome thoughts,  I give you.... 
"Zombies in Wonderland"  

Sign ups start today and end August 31st at midnight.  Sorry but this year it is USA only.

Mailing deadline is 
SEPTEMBER 14th.   Please ship using tracking and delivery confirmation. Please email me the tracking number.
If your doll has not been received by September 30th, you are required to send a replacement package.

This year, we will be swapping:
1 Handmade zombie doll.   

The doll needs to be designed after a character in the ever popular "Alice in Wonderland" story book.   There are SO many fun characters in Wonderland that the possibilities are endless!  Be sure to read what your partner likes before you go crazy!
The doll must measure a minimum of 8" in size. You can make it using any medium you choose, taking into account any allergies noted on the registration form.
Include at least 3 Halloween related tuck ins. These tuck ins can be thrifted, hand made, store bought, hand me downs....but must be in good condition.  Also, be sure to u
se the list your partner gives you as a guideline.

Cost: My swaps are meant to stretch your creativity, not buckle your budget. Expect to spend a minimum of $10.00 creating your package. (Cost of packaging/shipping is not included in this amount.)

All levels of artsy craftsy are invited. The most important thing to remember is this: Create something you would love to receive. When your partner opens her package, she should be thrilled. We want this to be a wonderful experience for everyone.

When packing to ship, please use Halloween colored tissues and wrap your package wickedly....but in a GOOD way.  Think Good Witch, not Bad Witch when wrapping...we ghouls want pretty packages!

One last thing. If you join, please do me the favor of posting the swap badge on your blog to encourage others to join in too.  We want new ghouls to join in the fun too!
