The flourish and Blotts sign is so cool and those lego head earrings haha love them!
^This! Two great packages. Those Lego heads are Voldemorts, with the noses missing? Wink Wink
I'd love to see a post about how the Flourish & Blotts sign was made, it looks amazing!

Mistress Jennie, that's a great package! Great colors on the mitts, and I love owl cables so much! Also that's a very cute felt owl, and a great package altogether.

Speaking of which, I got my package today! And I love it so much!


I had asked for something for my magical forest themed kitchen, and got this lovely little patronus forest diorama in a pinecone ornament! I had seen something like this on craftster before and greatly admired it and now I have my own! That'll become a year-long decoration, not just holidays, I'd be sorry to put it away in January. Also, that 'Always' is so perfect with it.


We agreed to send extras, so I also got these lovely things:

A necklace with a Felix Felicis charm. You look at it and it already feels lucky Wink I have some jewellery hung up next to my computer for decoration and it already went there to make me smile Wink And I got the amazing charm bracelet with the beautiful charms! I am a half-giant and don't often find bracelets that fit me but this one has a perfect fit. I love charms!

I also got lots of yummy Irish candy (approved by the whole family), extra mushrooms, and a 'Lumos' and 'Nox' sticker that I already have plans with.

Thank you edelC, I'm so glad we finally got to swap, and I love everything you sent!

A gingerbread house as a candy jar, that's brilliant!

I am, a bit shockingly, done.. but one project looks a bit plain, it needs some magic, or a good new idea... think I'll send the other one off tomorrow though.

This is so beautiful! And what a test of patience! I'm mortified by the progress shot with the many simultaneously used colors, you have obviously a good method dealing with that, wow!

two thirds into both projects I started, and having fun, Big kiddo wants to see the movie again, and we've roped little kiddo in with promises of lots of cute magical beasts. Probably going at the weekend, if finances allow.
Probably checking my stash in the next days for Huffllepuff colors because I love Newt Scamander's scarf Smiley

Standard! I'm not so impressed with what movie makers do with 3d, I think the really good 3d movies are still a few years away. If you like 3d in general, this movie will look great in 3d!
I hadn't read any reviews either, just seen trailers, and heard a few things... kiddo and I disagree about how stupid we think the movie is, he was the one who saw the final reveal coming a mile away and thinks it's well resolved, I had higher hopes for the last third and they were not met.
Generally, how is the movie not aware of fandom, also, what year do they think this is? Honestly, as a European, this looks a lot like a movie Europeans would make that aren't very familiar with the US, but then, it doesn't even pretend to depict the muggle side of the US in the first place so they can do what they want? I am really really curious about how it will resonate with a US audience. I could see it go both ways.
All in all, I recommend watching it. The movie is at its good parts extremely loveable, now a day later I find myself still liking it a whole lot. It ties in a ton of tropes that we're familiar with and makes good use of magic, so as a part of the HP universe, it holds up very well. Also, again, this movie is really pretty. I still say don't have high expectations in general. Smiley

Aaand we've seen "Fantastische Tierwesen und wo man sie findet", big kiddo and me! Not going to say too much, but aaaaw we had a good time... I went in with low expectations which really helped. Boy is this not a movie to be analyzed Wink but very sweet and extremely good looking.

I just had everything decided and laid out and started for both my partners, and then yesterday I found the perfect supply for another idea... will probably do all three and decide afterwards Wink
Wow, the new movie is coming out today here too! I hadn't quite realized that yet. Definitely plan on seeing it with my kids. Heard mixed things about it on tumblr but we missed other movies this year so I'd like to see this one in the cinema.
Would be unreasonable to go today because it's school tomorrow but still fun because I love movie premieres... gotta look if there's still tickets avaiable. And it's going to be this swap's fault for putting me on this track! Wink
