Okay, prepare yourselves for a long post about how amazing drakiame is.

She couldn't decide on just one thing to craft and neither could I, so we agreed on extras.  I wasn't expecting to be quite this spoiled though!  
Here's the whole haul together:

Miyazaki related things: Calcifer stamp (the first stamp drakiame has carved, he turned out very well!) and stamp-pad, Howl inspired needlebook, and Howl inspired charm bracelet.
Other awesome crafted stuff: paper star earrings, perler bead Slytherin crest (you stalked well, drakiame  Grin)

Close-ups:
Here's the Howl's Moving Castle stuff:

The needlebook is wonderful.  I've been meaning to make myself one for awhile so I'll stop sticking my needles into my pincushion and losing them, but now I don't have to make myself one because drakiame made this amazing one for me!  Howl is one of my favorite characters and I love the outfit that inspired this, drakiame rendered it perfectly.

Close up of the charm bracelet:

I've been wearing this pretty much non-stop since I opened the package.  The orange beads are for Calcifer (one of my absolute favorite characters).  Going left to right, here's what the other charms mean: the dark purple/black beads are for the Witch of the Waste, the next is turnip-head and his top-hat (this one's really clever, drakiame), then one with the colors of Howl's outfit (the same outfit that inspired the needlebook), a wing for Howl's monster-bird form, then a heart with a flower above it for when Howl gave his heart to Calcifer, the next one is for Sophie's braid that she fed to Calcifer, next beads in the same colors as Heen's fur, and finally beads representing Markl's green outfit with bow-tie and coin purse.  
I love the feel of charm bracelets and I love how colorful this one is.  The charms are really creative too.

Here's the non-Miyazaki stuff:

The earrings are great for me because I love dangly earrings but I don't like how heavy they usually are.  The Slytherin crest is absolutely perfect!

In addition to all that wonderfulness (as if it wasn't enough!), drakiame included chocolates (some of which have been gleefully eaten) and a butterfly notebook that's just my style.  

Thank you so much, drakiame, I've definitely been spoiled  Grin

I loved how the charm bracelet turned out too! I hope it fits okay! I might make another for myself.  Grin
