Fairytales

As you know I signed up for the Fairytale swap. Our partner Victoria choose a Snow White theme. Based on my current apron obsession the wheels in my head started to turn and I thought about a way to make a Snow White apron. Victoria recently moved to her own flat. Every girl with her own place needs an apron so here's what I came up with.

Of course no one wants to dress like a princess all the time so I made the apron reversible.

I went with red with white polka dots because red is my favorite color and Victoria has red and pink appliances in her kitchen. I had fun creating this fairytale apron. I just love fairytales! Don't you?

Now that the Fairytale swap is finished it's time to move on to another fairytale. Val is hosting an Alice in Wonderland apron swap over at Hot Mama's Apron Swap. I've already got my ideas, the fabric and I just received my partner info so I'm off to work on an apron. Before I go I wanted to share a few pictures I painted to add as tuck-ins for the swap. Apryl at Meridian Ariel makes the most gorgeous pictures using old book pages and sheet music. I just love them so I thought I'd give it a try. Stop by Apryl's blog and etsy shop to see her creations. While you're there don't forget to check out her amazing vintage monsters. Lillian & her Slightly Sinister Strawberry and Dexter are my favorite monsters so far but they are all awesome! I love the unique little story that comes with each monster. I hesitate to tell you that she's doing a giveaway featuring one of her monsters, because I want to win. Now I'm acting like Dexter the imp, of course it's not very nice of me as I should spread the monster love and give you your chance to take one of these little cuties home. So hurry over to Apryl's blog and enter before July 23rd. I'd leave a comment everyday if it didn't seem like cheating!

Back to the painted pages . . . no project is complete without a little help from Nature Girl. She painted the caterpillar and mushroom and drew the Red Queen's soldier for me to paint. I love how they turned out! How cute is that Red Queen's soldier?!! Now I'm not sure what to do with them but something will come to mind.
