~Woodland Fairy Altered House & much, much more!

Today I was like a little kid at Christmas.  You see I got happy mail from my swap partner today!
I am in awe and amazed at what Nanci has created for me.  I adore the color palette she chose and I love everything she made!  She created tons of extra things (see my previous post on what the swap entailed) and I love it all!  Considering this was also her first swap, I think what she did is AMAZING! So without further ado, here are my swap gifts!  I warn you, I took a tons of pictures!!

My woodland fairy house has a wood grain roof and fabric ivory woven throughout.  There are 3D mushrooms and flowers and my very own fairy out front! Butterflies flutter around the dormers.

It will take me a long time to fill this up.  There are pockets and folders and tabs everywhere!  I love the mint green and peach papers!  There is even a mini charm on the spine. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

The Chunky Charm
All shapes and sizes of beads in predominantly mint green and rose colors.  It's just gorgeous!
There are word charms and fairies, a ballerina and dragonfly, a key and even a little house!

All the EXTRAS!
Nanci went above and beyond on this swap.  Besides the listed items, she made me a hand stitched and bound fairy journal, gorgeous color coordinated stick pins, tin pins and paper embellies for my mini PLUS tins pins and embellies for Tacoah.  She also made Tacoah her very own necklace!
If you are reading this Nanci, thank you from the bottom of my heart.  It has been so exciting having you as my swap partner and I love everything you created for me.  To everyone else - CONVINCE NANCI TO JOIN THE CIRCLE!!!  :-)  And thanks so much for stopping by!
