Luck of the Fae Swap

Whew! My first swap is finally complete! My partner was Fawn~Dear and it was a delight to swap with her. I would love to be her partner again!

Here are all the goodies Fawn sent to me...I couldn't believe she sent one of her fairy doors! And Fawn, where did you find the Flower Fairy seeds?! The wand is wood-burned and painted with roses and a quote from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream", one of my favorite Shakespeare plays. I love how it says "Fairy Queen Beth Miller"!

Here is the enchanting little doll Fawn made. She has the sweetest flower petal dress, and soft golden hair. Aren't those wings beautiful? Fawn says she made them from a flexible cutting board from the dollar store! So creative!

Here is what I made for Fawn. I think I got a little carried away with the ribbons and charms on the wand! The shamrock pin is my first ever needle-felting project and it was really fun.

Once I got the little doll made, I couldn't resist making her a little house out of a seed pot. It's wallpapered with old seed packets and pages from an old gardening book. It was a blast to make!

Here's a close-up of the plethora of charms and stuff on the wand. I had a great time with this swap. It was so fun to be really creative for a change. Thanks, Fawn for being an awesome partner!

Those wands are just gorgeous.

This has to be the most delightful swap I've done yet. Maybe the whole theme added to it's magic.

The flower fairy seeds I found at my little local True Value (Home Improvement Store). I don't know if it's a National Chain or Regional store though.

Have an enchanting day!
