Greetings-

motherconfessor has been having uploading troubles so she gave me the go-ahead to post the pictures of the package I sent to her-



Here is everything all wrapped up. The handmade paper rolled up with the ribbon had an Aparecium spell cast on it (so I couldn't read it). Muggles can break the spell by ironing the paper with a VERY hot iron http://www.budget101.com/harrypotter/id743.htm


Inside there was more magic paper for book binding or other witchy purposes




MC said she needed small bags like pouch or cosmetic size so I made her one of each.



I made a thrown coffee mug (or, potions mug)


Owl magnets


This purse was actually a happy mistake. It was my first attempt at the scarf- the attempt was an epic fail so I turned it into a purse and added a flower. It's lined with canvas to help hold its shape and PUL so it's waterproof.



6 foot Gryffindor scarf. It took me 20 hours to knit this but I was really happy with how it turned out

I had a great time crafting for this swap! I can't wait to see what everyone else has made!!

I love that scarf! If I ever learn to knit, that'll be the first thing I make.  Or, y'know, 132 epic fail purses.  I love the mug, too.

The Owl Post left this most wonderful package on my doorstep this afternoon!

A lovely letter from my partner in green ink on Hogwarts letterhead, surrounded by all my goodies!  Each one has a cute little note about her inspiration for the enclosed item(s)


In the smallest box were these two necklaces:

a luna-inspired cork (maybe this will help me keep my big mouth shut when I should, haha!) and a flying key!

Next up we have an adorable hand-embroidered shirt for my son!  It has a lightning bolt on the front pocket, and says "Muggle-born" across the shoulders in back!  I can't wait until he grows into it!


An awesome wall-hanging of my favorite quote (Can you believe this was her first ever embroidery?!


And last but far from least:

An emergency dementor kit!  It has a spare wand, a box for Honeyduke's Chocolates, and a little memory book to make sure you can come up with the most powerful happy memories Cheesy  The memory book is hand-painted with a cute little rabbit patronus, too!

Thank you SO much, MonstersUnderYourBe d, I love it all!  I can only hope you like your package as much Smiley

and thank you, padfoot, for organizing such a fun swap!

I don't think it'd take a dementor attack for me to break in for chocolate.  I really like that key necklace.

I know, I was absolutely blown away when I saw it!  There may also have been some squealing at a couple of points during the unwrapping process Wink
