Hostess with the Mostess Part 2

If I labeled each blog post, which I don’t because I am too lazy, this post would include – Bucket List, Romance Novel, Acorns and Fairies. Sound intriguing? I hope so because all those labels add up to a new journal I made for Dawn over at Your Paper Pantry.

But, let’s start at the beginning shall we? Roxy from YPP saw the video I made of my Bucket List and asked me if I wanted to host a Bucket List swap on her fabulous site. Of course I agreed since hosting was on "my" Bucket List. Though unfortunately for Roxy, my swap morphed from Bucket List to Favorite Fictional Character. You can read all about it HERE.

Here's the latest update: 26 days, 14 characters that include 2 Scarlett's, 1 Eliza, 1 Bull and a Little Prince  (not Georgie) and, as of last count 9 likes, 175 replies and over 2000 views. Not too shabby for my very first hostess job, right? BTW I refuse to take it personally that only 9 gals like my swap!!

My partner's favorite character(s) were a couple from the Regency period of England from the novel A Matter of Class. Anna and Reggie's love story is filled with all the necessary trappings that any good romance novel requires. Don't want to giveaway too much, but the story has an arranged marriage. I also don't want to spoil it for you, but I promise you the ending will surprise you.   

WARNING: Photos below so Dawn, if you don't want to see, STOP READING NOW!! 
The Acorn Fairy lives in the tree where the two lovers meet and fall in love.

Actual oak leaves from the magical tree? 

 Dawn, if you now want to see more, HERE's the VIDEO.
To my fellow swappers who have already finished their journals, thank you for inspiring me. And to all of you who are still crafting, I hope my photos and video have inspired you.
Who's YOUR favorite fictional character?
