I got my package from the_essence today!!!! So super excited she did such a fantastic job and this was her first swap!
There were 2 of these notes. One from Professor Flitwick and the other from Mr. & Mrs. Flood of Honeydukes. They are Awesome!
The note with the bracelet reads (in a nutshell):
Official Hogwarts House Merchandise
Official Ravenclaw Charm Bracelet with:
Star: to represent the stars found on the ceiling of the Ravenclaw common room. Wand: key to life at Hogwarts. Teapot: Because not only are Ravenclaws sophisticated, but at Hogwarts, you do not wake up in the morning with coffee, but with tea. Diadem: to represent the diadem of Rowena Ravenclaw. Destiny: it is an individual's destiny to be chosen by a certain house. Portrait: a portrait of Rowena Ravenlcaw. Butterfly: everyone knows that ravenclaws are smart, but many forget, until they meet Luna Lovegood, that Ravenclaws are also some of the most unique students at Hogwarts. Book: to represent the emphasis on school and how the password to the ravenclaw common room is a riddle. Silver Chalice: for use in potions, also mentioned in the tales of Beedle the Bard. O: for Outstanding, because Ravenclaw students can often be found at the top of their class!
These 2 paintings are really gorgeous! The pictures were "taken" by Collin Creevy for the Hogwarts Yearbook. The picture was taken at an evening practice session of charms. They both have a silver metallic sheen to them!
These are totally hysterical. Theses and the 2 paintings are going to find homes in my craft room where I can look at them tons and tons!
I forgot to put the earrings in the pic with the bracelet but I think you can see them better here. These candle holders are adorable LOVE them!
Last but certainly not least my Honeydukes coffee/tea cozie... it says Accio Brain. Funny this is just how I see coffee.It brings me back my brain in the morning! Did you see the adorable lollies and candies around the bottom and I think she made the button from clay to look like a huge lollie.
the_essence Thank you so much you are a wonderful crafter. I had a ball in this swap and I love my stuff so much. hopefully you will get yours soon. USPS says that you should have it! Great job with your first swap!
