The Frog Prince

A friend of mine in another state is going through a divorce. She is a vibrant, confident, smart businesswoman and the divorce has been a long time coming. She wasn't expecting the roller coaster of emotions she has felt the past few months. Knowing that she has a good sense of humor, some of her friends have been telling her that someday her real prince will come, and that she just has to kiss a few frogs to find him.

Enter the knitted toy book that I've been having so much fun with lately....

Here is her frog prince:
 
I included this card made from my Hallmark card software
He traveled to her inside a large shoebox, wrapped in paper with the first page of sheet music from Someday My Prince Will Come printed over and over on it.

"Here's looking at you, kid"
Hopefully, if my friend ever does kiss a frog, he will be a handsome, intelligent, kind prince
And if he retains a nasty habit, he'd better use a good mouthwash!

Oh, I love the frog. My older daughter has been collecting frogs for many years, hoping that her Prince would come. Love the cartoon, too.

What a neat idea, Knitty. I hope it cheered your friend up and I wish her the best of luck in finding her 'prince'!

My neice is going through a divorce too - she wanted it - it's still hard - I am going to forward your blog to her - just so she can read this.

What a great friend you are! If that doesn't pull her out of her funk nothing will. How sweet is that! You are so talented and come up with the best ideas. I love all of these little animals you have been sharing with us. I hope you have a great weekend ♥
