Toriaa and I just swapped today! (we met up in person) and you know what? I have you all beat. I got the coolest partner ever.


Why do I have the coolest partner ever? Well, we decided to meet up. Which meant, what? NO SHIPPING RESTRICTIONS!!!!!1omgponies
. Now, I might have gone a little mad with this freedom, but she went absolutley NUTS.



A broomstick. An actual, really big broomstick!




Cat and tree included for scale. The tree is about six feet tall. The cat is not. Not only that, but since I told Toriaa that I'm scared of heights, a little "muggle potion" was included to help me overcome that.



There's a big ol' story behind all of this (Toriaa was so damn creative! I felt like running away and coming back later with much more, much cooler stuff!), but it's... of a delicate nature.  Not of a delicate nature is how shocked i was to find it was actually mine! I thought it was just Toriaa's way of getting noticed! (trust me, when you walk into a coffee shop with a broom, you get noticed!) And, lol, how our neighbours reacted when I (just finished taking pictures of the broom) crossed the street to check the mail! The uber conservative reformed Dutch lady across the street nearly hit her mailbox with her car, she was staring at me so hard!

But that's not all. Lord no, that's not all!



A crocheted bag! With the Dark Mark on it! (one can never have too much Dark Mark stuff.) And it's so cool, the little snake coming out of the Skull's mouth is the handle! It's really neat--she even sewed in a lining (!!) and the button is to die for. shiny. shiny.

Now, the next stuff, I had to work for. (It was part of the sort-of roleplaying we ended up doing!) I had to perform magic for her. Of course,  I couldn't just pull out my wand and really wow her. And the silly little Muggle Magic things that Severus (again, sort-of roleplaying, here!) were... well, confusing. The directions are tiny!! (those aren't the directions, that's Snape's letter to me.)



So I ended up doing the lame "Pulled off the tip of my thumb" trick, and Toriaa was satisfied, and emptied her pockets. (Which were in her shirt... it was... it was kind of odd.)

Here they are:




I love them all. I'm going to use that pin all the time! And the two snake pendants... I was reallyshocked to get those! For those of you who don't know, they're based off of Auryn, the magic necklace from Neverending Story. I think I might have squeed inside. (I know I bragged to my mom about it; "Look! I got Auryn!") Also, Auryn is on my wist! I was like, eee!

 Just to show them off, I put them on the Mardi Gras beads I also got.  These are really lovely too-- the thread they're on is actually silver. I didn't even notice that until I got home!  (her friend asked her how she got the beads. Me, I wanted to know how Snape got the beads!!)


Here's a groupshot of eveything that wasn't the boom: 

And last, but certianly not least, is this adorable little snake. He's made out of felt (which always impresses me-- how on earth do you hide your stitches like ya did!?)



This was just sooo much fun to do!

I just got the best swap package ever in the mail today.  It made it here safe and sound from Australia, despite a misspelling in the address.  Tanza (witch in Herbology training) made me some great stuff!

Firstly, my Raven(s)claw lap quilt (apparently, the house elf she has for embroidering things is an atrocious speller -  Cheesy).  It's about 3 feet by 2 and a half feet - just right for covering up my legs.

Full picture



I don't know if you can see it, but alternating squares are embroidered with quotes from Gilderoy Lockhart and the Weasly Twins, including a couple of my favorites ("Give her hell from us Peeves").  Also, there are Potterpuff characters embroidered on and a bunch of other things (the Dark Mark).  The other squares are from Hogwarts crest fabric, and stars and moons.

Close ups of my favorite patches







and (like the quilt wasn't enough), there is a Ravenclaw Quidditch team shirt for me (Chaser, #17).  It's fantastic.

Flat






Action Shot (which was difficult - as I don't have a full mirror in the house, only a half mirror in the bathroom).



Also, we did a side-swap, where I got some cloth pads, which I neglected to take a picture of (and which are not Ravenclaw themed), which I'm also super excited to try out (but it'll have to wait a month or so).

Thank you so much Tanza!  I love everything!  You're my hero forever!

haha I couldn't help myself! i thought, "NO SHIPPING... MUST MAKE SOMETHING HUGE!!!!" and that was that. it had to be a broomstick. i made my housemates go "stick hunting" with me in the woods next to my house, muahahaha. it didn't even take very long, but it was MESSY (i still have remnants of the UBER-sticky glue on my hands... and possibly in my hair lol).

This was just sooo much fun to do!

I AGREE! Ladies and gentlemen (are there any guys in this swap??), I received the most FABULOUS package from SeeMe. Prepare to be amazed...

Group shot:



I asked for a bookmark, and BOY did I get bookmarks! These are so beautiful and delicate:



Hand-dyed yarn! I wish I could do this:



I got a new owl to take to school! His name is Archibald and he will deliver my post... but nothing too heavy, of course:



Archibald, hangin' out with his friends:



HP pencils (one of which I have already put into action) and trading cards (redeemable for quidditch lessons and a Nimbus Two Thousand!):



Last but most certainly not least, my favourite item, the Ravenclaw scarf (!!!!) that is actually long enough for me:



K for Keeper of the quidditch team!  Cool



Laid out on my bed:



Detail on the K:



And in case your computer wasn't already exploding from all my pictures... we swapped in person! It was awesome!



Me (excuse vacant expression):



SeeMe (Republicans for Voldemort LOLOLOLOL!):




HURRAY! I love all my stuff, thank you SO MUCH, SeeMe! It was awesome swapping with you.  Cheesy
