So you know those people that look forward to Christmas ALL YEAR and then totally freak out on the day and don't enjoy any of it? Well take it a step further. Hunter (unfortunate coincidence) hacked all of her party guests to pieces when one of them refused to sing along to Silent Night. Oh dear...

I was recently chosen to receive a free Ouija board necklace in a contest held by TheCaravan!
I also received a free sample of her Cherriepie Luxury Soap
It arrived very quickly and the packaging was excellent. Even her labels match the beautiful theme of her shop perfectly! TheCaravan has excellent communication and although I did not purchase this item, I won it, it is still *very* reasonably priced. Both the necklace and the soap are wonderful quality items. I absolutely love her work and will definitely be back for more!

Here are the instructions on how to make the inexpensive bookmark/tea light/candy favors I came up with for my Celtic theme, after-wedding, sort-of-reception party.
Something like this would also be great for any type of party, especially if there is a theme. Just change the charm & colors to match the theme such as orange & black with bat charms for Halloween, or mix & match bright colors for a Mad Hatter Tea Party!

Here's a quick and easy item to make as a stocking stuffer or just for yourself if you're an avid reader. You could also use it on gifts or to tie party favors (look for another how-to on that one!).

The scent of Victorian Roses fills the air before you light the candle.
The Victorian Rose is elegant simple and yet a delight when you need a hint of spring on a cold dark day.
Set of 6 Votive Candles
Feather Palm Wax blend
I ordered 36 white skull beads from SWStitchery. The beads arrived just perfect! They are so cute and will look awesome on what I'm making. The 'extras' she sent will be used on a little gift I'm making for myself. :)
Thank you so much Static! I will be ordering from you again for sure!

I custom ordered a batch of White Skull Shaped Soaps Vanilla scented from AgonysDecay.
Not only did the order arrive in two days, they were packaged very carefully, she included some neat promo items and a Pink Dragon's Blood scented Brain soap (hubby sniffs it through the wrapping while typing on his computer)! The price was extremely reasonable and we communicated often as the custom order was being created. Overall I'm more than satisfied with this purchase as are the kids from my daughters Pre-K class since the soaps went into treat goody bags I did for Halloween! I will definitely be back for more from AgonysDecay.
