Enchanted Makeovers and Fairys

I have just finished a project I have been working on most of this past week. I have been making some fairy necklaces to go to a very special group of young women. Make Mine Pink and my own business Gail Friend Designs have adopted Enchanted Makeovers. This organization is operated by Terry Grahl and she makes over womens shelters. Her current project is called Vista Maria and this is shaping up to be a beautiful new place for these young women to call home. Next week they will be having a very special dinner party for these girls. There will be a chef come in to cook for them and teach them about cooking, there will be flowers and a professional photographer as well. I also believe there will be a singer to entertain. The tables will be set with vintage china and chairs adorned with beautiful fabric swags. Women all over the country have been generously making aprons for each of the girls as well. My contribution is a small gift bag with a fairy necklace that I have designed for especially for the girls and this event. I wrapped each necklace in its own bag with butterfly confetti and a pink bow. Its being shipped out in this gorgeous rose box I got at the Post Office. I wrote on the box "Enchanted Faireys Inside" hoping it would be treated with extra gentle care. :) I hope they have a magical evening that will give them happy memories for a very long time.

Hi Gail,

The fairy necklaces are so special! I am so sure the girls would be delighted receiving this special gift from you...

I wonder if they would accept little miniatures too? Maybe I should email them to check...
