October Surprise ~ Circle of Friends Swap

The Circle of Friends does a monthly surprise swap, you send one item of your choosing to your secret partner.  This is the first month that I have taken part and I had a great time creating this little piece for my secret person.

It started off as a bottle cap magnet with one of my favorite Halloween themes, Mr. Edgar Allan Poe.

Then I decided it needed something special to whisk it away to my secret partner.  When a small fabric bag crossed my path I snatched it up and died it a soft grey.  Then I decided to add a flower. 

I altered two straight pins to affix the flower to the bag.  So my partner can take it off and use it elsewhere. 

And finally I stamped the back with spiders.  I hope she likes it, I'm off to drop it in the mail.

Oh, I bet she will love that! Very creative of you! I love your spider blog background, too. Thanks so much for your recent visit to my blog. I'm so inspired by fellow creators such as yourself!

Very cute goodies and surprises!

In answer to your question on my blog:

You need to read the first three books of The Mortal Instruments first. Then read Clockwork Angel, which is from the Infernal Devices series. There is information in Clockwork Angel you need to better understand the fourth book in The Moral Instruments series entitled City of Fallen Angels.

I hope this helps! These two series are by far my favorite YA series. Ever.
