3371  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: OTHPT2 aka One Tiny Harry Potter Thing Round 2~Signups Closed ~ Sendouts Mar. 31 ~ on: February 18, 2011 06:08:27 AM
Heads up for everyone- I was just at Jo Anns, and you know the 1$ items they always have for you to buy while waiting in line? Well... they had two different sheets of Harry Potter scrapbook stickers!! One had all four house crests and a few other little stickers, the other had lots of signs (9 3/4, Ministry...). I bought two of each. Smiley

CRAP!  That's so annoying, because the nearest Joann's is an hour away in Tennessee and I almost never get an excuse to go down there.  (Our car's not in good shape, and I doubt DH will understand if I tell him I need to drive for 2 hours to buy HP stickers!)  It's one of the really big Joann's ETC. stores too, and it's way too much fun.  Sometimes Ex_Gratia and I go together, or I have to go for work, but no such luck now...   Cry Cry Cry

This is pretty much an on going thing with pinkleo & jennieingram isn't it? I'm jumping on that band waggon of year round HP crafting. Cheesy

It's true.  I'm always working on *something* HP related.  In fact, I'll be posting a pretty awesome project I finally finished later tonight....  I'll be sure to leave a link here Wink

I received two lovely bookmarks from chughes225 last night!  (But I didn't realize it till I was going to bed.  DH accidentally put something on top of the mail, so I didn't see it!)

The first is a super cute Princess Bride themed bookmark:

The picture doesn't do it justice.  She burned the edges of the paper and really distressed it.  Well done chughes!

The second one is Harry Potter themed, and is just too cute for words... Not to mention something I NEVER would have thought up on my own!
A wand with Harry, Ron & Hermoine tassels!

(My apologies for the glare, I was in a rush this morning.  I'll try to get better pictures tonight!)

And a close up on the figures:

Aren't they adorable???  Thank you so much chughes225!  They are fabulous and I can't wait to start using them.  What a wonderful way to enter the world of swapping.  You are SOOO going to become addicted!

I totally appreciate the clarification since I have not done a OTT swap before. I'm a tiny confused about how people are gathering ideas on things to make. Do we not use wists or wish lists and craft off of that? Or is it purely based on anything HP related? I have ideas too, but I get soo much more inspired by partners likes and such.  Watching HP movies all week has my head reeling and ready to craft, can't wait!

v3nu5, you are not alone in being confused by those posts.  People should be waiting till they receive partners and those partners questionnaires/wists before deciding what to make.  They should NOT be making just anything HP related and sending it to whoever they get as a partner.  Your OTT should absolutely be based off of inspiration by your partner's interests!

I think people in HP swaps tend to get a little over-excited and want to start crafting right away, but the signup period is usually long.  And that enthusiasm is great, don't get me wrong.  BUT, crafters who feel that way should probably channel that enthusiasm into making something fun for themselves or for a friend as a warm-up to the swap instead of crossing their fingers and hoping their partners will like whatever it is they have been dreaming up.

I love this so much. The colors are amazing and very Molly Weasley. I'm sure your partner was so excited to recieve this.

I was in fact THRILLED to receive this shawl!  I got so many compliments on it the day of the opening!  I wore it to work that day and everyone except one co-worker stopped to tell me how cute it was.  The odd co-worker out said I looked "like a phesant", but I can't stand her anyways so her opinion doesn't count.  I also wear this around the house on a frequent basis.  Snuggling up to watch a movie or read a book?  Well a blanket can warm your lap but you need a shawl to warm your shoulders! 

Thank you again so very much dear Andromeda!  You were one heck of an amazing swap partner!

Checking In: The dreaded binding begins

Binding is simple and fun.  Nothing to be dreaded.  Why don't I just pop over for tea and we can bind mug rugs together?

Oh wait, you're in Texas, and I'm not.  Sad
