A Fairy Went a-Marketing, and this is what she found…

 I was a wee bit late getting these packages sent. .  you see, I made “a Fairy Went a-Marketing”  Catalogs that I personalized according to what items were received back from each participant. (this was for the adult fairy swap) and obviously they couldn’t be made until all of the items arrived here.

I drew a sketch of each fairy item sent in for the swap and then wrote up what each item was… just like a catalog. 😉   Thank goodness for  scanner/printers!  I  made the little book from fancy scrapbook paper to glue them onto

Here’s my finished product (remember, each catalog is uniquely different with 9 items… the 10th item is the catalog.)

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing all of these amazing fairy items!  If you missed out on this swap, don’t worry… I’m sure to host another swap like this in a couple months from now (maybe one fairy swap for each season?  what do you think… good idea or bad idea? maybe only 5 items next time and no bag? )

Wondering what bags I’m talking about?  see them all HERE!  Each participant received one bag to hold all their fairy surprises!


About Missy

I'm a wife to an awesome Army vet, and mother to four daughters and three step-sons! I love to sew. I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals. I've always been drawn to nature which has lead me towards a more natural and healthy lifestyle which I'm finally trying to bring back into my life, and those precious lives around me.

    Happy Spring to you!

    Missy this was the most fun swap I have ever been in. I love the catalog!

    Seasonal fairy swap and five items sound like a lot less expense but I love the fairy bags!!! That was the best part (so far) to vote on the favorite.

    I will let you know when my parcel has arrived.

    Missy…thank you as I can just imagine the time involved on your part!

    Will you consider a child’s component? We will be watching 😉

    You catalog is very enchanting. The girls and I are eagerly awaiting our fairy treasures in the mail.

    Thank You, thank you, thank you (over the rainbow and back again) for hosting such an imaginative swap.

    Of course we would love to continue to be apart of future fairy swaps. So many different ideas to choose from: Fairy garden, house, hat, wand, doll swaps are all wonderful ideas. Can’t wait to see what the next one is.

    Thank you again.

    oh my GOSH, that is an amazing catalog! You did SO much work!
    The bags are going to be so precious to everyone, with their little treasures tucked inside…..
    Thank you again for hosting!

    ps…..next time, I’m doing the ‘other’ bag and trimming with the ‘special things’ I found. HAHA!

  7. Kat Fuller says:

    Yeah! I got Lucy’s bag and it is more beautiful and precious then the picture – I knew it would be. Thank you Missy. This was an amazing swap. I felt like a little girl again. I am glad to have made your acquaintance.

    Don’t be a stranger.

    This was a fantastic swap – ALL of your hard work was VERY much appreciated.
    Love the idea of a swap for every season – I really enjoyed making the bag and wouldn’t have a problem making one of them for each season:-)
    Thanks a bunch
