The Great Halloween Swap of 2006 [Oct. 3rd, 2006|03:16 pm]
Creepy S-Care Package Swaps


So... there's a chill in the air, the leaves are crisping on the trees and taking on a brown hue. The swirling wind carries the scent of wood-smoke, leaf mould and rain. The shops are starting to stock brilliant orange banners, black pointy witches hats, glittery finger nails and plastic Dracula cloaks. The pumpkins are fat in the pumpkin patch and the smell of spiced apples makes our mouths water. 

Oh yes. It's that sweetly spooky swapping time... 

Halloween 2006

And what a swap this shall be!

I'm sure everyone knows exactly what to put in these packages, but for the sake of inspiration, here are some ideas:

 Treats! Sweeties, anything Halloween or horror related. Candy corn, Halloween versions of classics, treat sized goodies. Spiced teas, something warming!
 Decorations - banners, balloons, stickers, cobwebs, confetti, things on strings, candles. Supermarkets always have an excellent selection of goodies. 
 Costume related paraphanalia. Make-up, jewellery, hair clips, fangs, false nails/lashes, gloves, masks, tights, socks, hair bands, cloaks. Claire's Accessories is a shrine for cheap and cheerful Halloween accessories.
 Music - what's the theme tune for your Halloween? Film scores, theme tunes, monster-bash style classics? Share it!
 ... any motif relating to Halloween in any way, shape or form. Bats, cats, witches, spiders, vampires, zombies, cobwebs, pumpkins, candy floss, Nightmare Before Christmas, candy corn, spiced apples, pumpkin pie... 
 Pamper products - again, make up but why not some spicy soap, a pumpkin bathbomb, some creepy bath confetti?

You might also like to check out last year's packages (the swap theme was Ode to the Passing of Halloween, as we didn't get started until November). Packages by: gossamerfaery + jenoofer + michellesart + sacrilicious + vashe + ninagrrl + atropinesulfate

To take part, simply copy & paste the list of questions into a comment, fill in your answers and post. I will set you up with an appropriate buddy. When you have a partner, email them and confirm how much you two will be spending and when the packages will be posted out. Generally £15 is about right, and I would try and get them sent before Halloween :P

Finally! September Swap [Sep. 12th, 2006|06:08 pm]
Creepy S-Care Package Swaps

[Tags|, , , , ]

Finally! Sorry it's taken to bloody long to sort this one out... thanks buckets for all the ideas :)

I think, rather than waste time voting (as over the next week I'm going to be moving, and really don't want to be doing this then!) I'm just going to make this swap....

Slytherin September! 

In other words, this month will be the much anticipated Harry Potter swap

So what the bloody hell goes into a Harry Potter swap? 

Books - Let us presume that everyone involved will already own a copy of the six published books, so forget those. There are several comic relief mini-books, as well plenty of unofficial guides/encyclopedias and parodies available. 

CDs - film soundtracks, wizard or magic related music. 

Film merchandise - such as posters, articles, the aforementioned soundtracks, film scripts, promo bits...

House or character related bits - doesn't have to be expensive official merch - use your imagination! Snakes/green/silver for a Slytherin fan, lions/red/gold for Gryffindor, etc etc. Jewelery, accessories, make-up...

Sweeties - lord knows where you could find something Potter-esque in this department, but if you could get your hands on some honeydukes chocolate or Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans then I'm sure you'll be very popular :D

Anything wizard, witch or magic related will do! eBay is a fabby resource!

To join in, please copy&paste the following questions into a comment, fill them in and wait patiently for me to partner you up with someone!

Email address:
Willing to ship to:
(n.b. the wider your shipping range, the more likely I'll be able to partner you up)

Preferable House: 
Favourite character(s):
Favourite magical creature(s) (if any):
Did you like the films? 
Favourite book:
Any other Potter related preferences:

Allergies/Special Info: 
Pierced ears?

Any other preferences:

Newbies please be sure to read over the rules which can be found on the Info page... 

Next month will be the Halloween swap! Take care sweeties!

Okay, finally bat-lings , I have time to sort the next trade. 

What themes are you guys interested in? Even if you're not up for trading at the moment suggestions are essential for the survival of the community as my brain feels like it's been deep fryed and skewered. 

Literally, anything you fancy. Crafty, ghostly, burlesque, horror, movie-based, early Autumn, late summer, Slytherin, Tim Burton, fantasy... whatever!

Don't fuss about a snappy title, just a general idea will do! 

If you'd really rather I put in the work and we do a vote (as we usually do) then that's no problemo but please let me know!

Thanks! xx

August Swap Time! [Aug. 7th, 2006|09:03 pm]
Creepy S-Care Package Swaps

[Current Mood |blahblah]

Since Miss Vashe is very busy at the moment, I'm going to attempt to host this months trade =D

Here are the choices
((Most of them dug up from past swap ideas >.> ))

The Utterly Undead - Braaaaiiins! Too busy chomping on brains to notice what the weather's like? Perhaps a package full of graveyard gouls, creaking coffins, munching maggots and shuffling zombies would be more to your taste?

Hot, Hot, Heat - The Summer swap! Anything and everything summery. From bright coloured make up to a new pair of flip flops. It doesn't matter it's SUMMER!! 8D

The Gothy One - Are you Goth or like the 'Gothic scene'? This is the swap for you. Tailor made for your tastes. Cobwebs, fishnets, dark make up, you name it you got it ;)

I uber apologise for the crappy-ness of the ideas but hey, you'll live XD;; So go vote, yo!
