Aw, I can't stop smiling! Thanks so much Whileywoo! I'm so, so glad you like it!
The painting was the piece I was talking about when I said I had finished something I was in love with...she's one of my favourites that I've done and I'm so glad she's gone to a good home! I was really, really worried about it too though because I think sending art is so much more subjective so there was more of a chance you wouldn't have liked her, but I'm so glad you do (and I'm so flattered you like my work!
) And yep, "Fair Ravenclaw From Glen"!
And I'm so glad you like the recipe binder too! I was really happy with the way all the newspaper (Daily Prophets, of course
One of the articles was even about OotP and had pictures and everything!) showed through, I thought it made it look all magical and layered but I was a bit worried you'd think it wasn't on purpose and that I just suck, hehe. So happy you like it!
Have you checked the inside back of the journal?
Originally it was supposed to be a swap journal, since this was your first swap, but I decided to leave it mostly blank so you could do what you wanted with it. There's also a certain Big Damn Hero on the map (although not the Hero of Canton which, I've just now realised, it probably should have been).
Okay, I think that's it (I knew there'd be more I meant to tell you!). Thanks so much for all the lovely things you said, and for taking such lovely photos, I really can't stop smiling! I'm so super happy that you like it, this was my first swap too and I'm just so excited that you like everything and that it went so lovely-ly! Eeeeeeeeeeee!
Must stop smiling now before I give myself wrinkles
And thank you, KTLynn and Annamhudson, too!
