Thank you, LimeRiot, for flipping my pic. That was aggravating me! I tried it every way I could think of but it kept flipping when I posted.

Thank you, stillatthetop! The sweatshirt was mostly cotton, I think... The paint was by Deval. I will definitely try your tips. Much appreciated!

Ooooh, how cool! I have always wanted to try marbling paper, but have never gottena round to it. Even bought a book on it.  Yours is gorgeous!

Something special... Maybe a stellated dodecahedron ornament?

In the Back to Hogwarts 4 Swap, I really wanted to make my partner something useful. I ended up buying a sweatshirt and using freezer paper stencils to make her a house pride shirt.


I had my daughter try it on so I could make sure the letter placement down the sleeve was ok.



The crest is obviously not a true house crest. It's modified from one I found online.


 The font is called Lumos - a free Harry Potter font I found online. And seriously... no idea why the picture is upside down on here. It's upside right in my picture folder... And I have tried flipping it and it just won't post flipped. Amazing Mod wanna rescue me?

It took three applications of the yellow screen printing paint to get the yellow bright enough against the black. After the first application, I was like, "Uh oh..." It looked as though I had spilled mustard on a shirt and hastily wiped it off. I was seriously worried!

Any tips on working with bright colors on dark sweatshirts? All three of my kids want a house pride sweatshirt now...

I'm loving so much of what I'm seeing posted here! You all are so very creative... I wish I had thought of making a chocolate frog stuffie. That is just perfect. Also love the felt quill pen - so cute! The hand carved stamps are great - especially the Build Your Own Magical Castle set! The etched glasses are fantastic. The shrieking shack is amazing. The set of earrings is so very nice - the deer are my favorite.

Looking forward to seeing what comes next. =)
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / My turn! Be jealous! on: October 05, 2013 04:06:27 PM
I know you all *think* you got the best package... Sorry to disappoint you all. Silentblair put together an absolutely wondrous box of potterific lovelies. I apologize in advance that my photos aren't very great. My batteries were dying, so my camera refused to let me use its flash.


Here's everything all together... Really can't pick a favorite item. Really.




This hat is amazing in the extreme. Not only is it JUST exactly my style, but it is made from salvaged yarn, which is way cool. Totally love upcycled/recycled stuff!


Next up... stamped leather bracelet. Squee! I wore this to work and everyone loved it, even though no one knew what it was from. I work with a bunch of muggles.


My cute, tiny Stupefy hoop! Check out all those tiny french knots! And out of metallic silver thread, no less. Silentblair must have the patience of a saint. I will be hanging this in my kitchen, I think. I have a skinny wall bit between the back door and the window that is empty. This will fit nicely!


A real Slytherin Patch! Aaaaannnnnd! A tiny Potions book ornament! With real pages. With itty bitty print and pictures. So lovely!


Ok, these are just plain fun... popsicle stick characters!


Side one... My new favorite coffee mug. Because... it's Snape. <3


Side two... <3  Isn't silentblair amazing?!


And take a look at this bag! It's not only gorgeous, but it's the perfect size. I can't even begin to say how much I adore this. And take a peak at what was hidden inside...


Cut paper book covers! Hogwarts - A History. What a cool idea!


The Tales of Beedle the Bard


And how clever... The Invisible Book of Invisibility

These three beauties will be finding a place of honor... I'm thinking of hanging them along the wall of the short hallway thing which is kind of the center of our house. You literally have to pass through the hallway to get anywhere in the house, so they will get seen by anyone who comes to visit. I am sad I can't hang them yet, though, as we are renovating the entire house, from back to front. The sunroom/back porch and kitchen are done. We are working on the living room now. The hall is up next, though!

Last, but not least:

Sweet Howler inspired fingerless mitts! Really perfect for reading in bed with, and double awesome because I lost mine over the summer.

Thank you, silentblair, for being such an incredible swap partner... And I apologize for not posting these earlier. I thought I had the morning off, because I NEVER work mornings... but I ended up being scheduled for 7 am today! Oops.

Everyone else... you may commence being jealous over my most amazing loot.

Yay! My wondrous package from silentblair arrived! And it is amazing in the extreme... Sadly it arrived too late for me to get pictures before work. =(

So, many thanks, silentblair.

I will brag via pictures in the gallery tomorrow morning, trusty cup of coffee {in my new, incredible, perfect mug} by my side.

Oh Oh! I just checked both tracking numbers, and it looks as though both silentblair and I should receive today! Darn work. The post office better deliver before 3pm... =D (Can you tell I'm excited?!)

Checking in! I found my missing _______ which is an integral supply for making a ______ _____.  Grin  And, I downloaded a soundboard to my phone so whenever I get a text Professor McGonagall says, "May I have your attention please." Not that that has anything to do with crafting... But it's totally in the spirit!

Anyways... Yes... Off to ____ some _____ so I can cut ____ _____ and ______ ___ ____.
