Enchanted Swap

My wonderful partner for the Enchanted Swap was Melissa who's blog is HellesBelles and her Etsy Shop is White Coral Belles . We were suppose to make something based on the movie Enchanted, which I have never seen. We were suppose to make something that we would want to have with us if we fell through a hole from the princess world into today's world. Melissa made me the cutest princess stuff that I have ever seen! There is a Princess Survival Kit that is to help me survive in the real world. It has a pattern for a little dress and a need and thread in it. Then she made a beautiful flowery crown so that others may know that I am royalty. It is going to look so pretty in my room when I get all my fairy stuff hung up! (We won't tell Earl that our room is going to be princessy fairish room)
Then there is a blue princess dress to make me feel pretty even in a strange world. Then there is a Fairy Godmother, just because every girl needs one. A dairy to keep track of all my adventures and a candle to light my way in uncertain times. Check out the little Bad Apple Detector that Melissa made too. Isn't it just too cute!! Then of course, Melissa being so sweet, sent candies to my kids and me. There are a lot of yummy treats in there. My kids are starting to enjoy these swaps almost more than I am!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Melissa you are so creative and I really LOVE everything you sent!
I will treasure it always!!

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
