I love those patronus ornaments and the wand(!)  Here's my wonderful package from our lovely organizer Mistress Jennie.

My very own silver doe shrine ornament.  I am so happy one of these came to my house!  She also included some holiday teas, a sparkly bookmark and the most amazing rosewood and calendula goats milk soap.  Thanks so much for organizing the swap and being my partner, Jennie!

Man, I was super duper careful about who I sent what to and still almost made a mistake.  This is an easy one to mess up on. That shrine is adorable, Jennie!  Here's my lovely gift from Abbeeroad:

A HP holiday mug rug!  She selected a thestral theme and holiday'd it up a bit.  Her skill with embroidery is stunning!   Shocked  She sent an extra holiday pin. Yay!


The back is as great as the front.  Check out this fabric.


I love love love it, Abbie, thank you so much!

3  Harry Potter Character Ornaments in Winter Holidays by MissingWillow on: December 02, 2014 10:24:46 AM
For the Harry Potter Holidays swap, all of my partners had listed their favorite character in their sign-up sheet.  What I came up with was an altered tin ornament featuring a photo of everyone's fave.  My daughter helped me with the name banners, I am just terrible with that sort of thing.  I was enchanted and inspired by Knickertwist's Hogwarts House Cards - http://blog.pixiehill.com/2014/09/hogwarts-house-cards.html

These were super fun to make!  Close-ups below of each one.

My turn!  I received two of the cutest ornaments from jillybeans!  Check Ron out in his santa hat.  The stitching is sooo tiny, this is a mason jar lid.   Shocked



She also sent along a little owl with the most soulful eyes. 


Thank you so much, jillybeans!   Kiss  Happy Harry Holidays to you!

6  Super Easy Peppermint Bark in Dessert by MissingWillow on: November 18, 2014 08:41:50 AM
I make peppermint bark this time of year, it's great to have on hand when company comes to visit and my family always asks for it.  If you buy it already made, it's crazy expensive.  Why not make some yourself?  It only has four ingredients:

Bag of chocolate chips (milk, dark, whatever you like)
Bat of white chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon of peppermint flavoring
6 candy canes, crushed

I start by melting the chocolate in the microwave.  You can also do this over a double boiler but I find the microwave works just fine if you do it in 15 second intervals and keep it stirred.  This gets poured into an 8 by 8 inch pan that's lined with parchment paper.

I only let this set up for about 5 minutes before melting the white chocolate chips the same way.  Once the white chocolate is melted, I stir in the peppermint flavoring and then drop it by spoonfuls on top of the melted chocolate then swirl it all together.  The reason I do it this way is I've found in the past if I wait until the first layer has set up, the bark has a tendency to separate between the two chocolate layers.

The last step is to sprinkle the crushed candy canes on top and push them in gently with your fingers to make sure they set.  Here's a secret... I buy candy canes after Christmas at super sale prices and just keep them in a cabinet until the following year.  They keep really well.  *shhhhh*   Wink

Once the entire pan has solidified, lift the parchment paper out, cut the bark and package for gifts.  Or just eat it.   Cheesy

I CAN NOT tell you how much I love this!  It just blew me away to see our animals dressed in vintage Halloween gear!!!  I bow to your photoshop skills, coocoosnest.  I love each and every page, here are a few of my favorites.
Our departed and greatly loved dogs Jenna and Milos, who is so handsome in that hat!

You're amazing, thank you from the bottom of my heart!   Kiss Kiss Kiss

9  Zombie Tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by MissingWillow on: October 27, 2014 10:02:05 AM
I fell in love with this zombie fabric from Riley Blake and knew I had to make something for coocoosnest with it.  She told me she needed a bag of certain dimensions to carry sheet music to a festival she attends every year so I winged it.  The lining is black spiderweb fabric.

10  Poisonous Napkins in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: October 27, 2014 09:55:42 AM
I made these for Knickertwist in the most recent IYP swap.  The pretty poison embroidery files came from Urban Threads (love them!).  I couldn't resist putting poisonous plants on dinner napkins.  The designs include Bloodroot, Deadly Nightshade, Poison Ivy, Hemlock, Hellebore and Wolfsbane. 

Wiping your mouth with this one might cause itching.   Cheesy
