I have been working on this odd little project for what feels like ages now. It was made for audio-astrophysics
in the One Tiny Harry Potter Thing Swap. I knew I wanted to make her something really unusual, and also hopefully useful. I know that dear audio crafts like mad, so I thought I'd make her something small to take with her to play with on trips so she'd always have her craft supplies handy. So audio, good luck on your "craftical quests in the Potterverse!"
