One can never have enough Harry Potter swaps! Wink

MizzKodak & I started talking and decided it would be wondrous to have a Back to Hogwarts Swap! (to sort of go along with back to school time)

The swap will be for 1 large, 1 medium, and 1 small.

To stretch our crafty muscles and to keep with our theme, we'll be crafting...
~* one item based on your partner's favorite shop
~* one item based on your partner's favorite class
~* one item based on your partner's house preference.


EXAMPLE:
Your partner's fave shop is Ollivanders, fave class is Potions, and house preference is Ravenclaw.
You could make....
a LARGE Stenciled Ravenclaw Hoodie, a MEDIUM Wooden Wand, and a SMALL Pair of Potions Earrings. 
OR
a LARGE Cauldron, a MEDIUM Ravenclaw Hat, and a SMALL Wand Necklace.


I think it's time to narrow down the dates....
SIGNUPS: August 5-19
SENDOUTS: October 7

~* 2 weeks of signups and 7 weeks to craft
(I'm trying to give plenty of time for those with school busyness Grin).

Now you know that sounds FUN!

So who is interested!!! Grin

Me too! Definitely Smiley

With school starting in mid-August, I would rather have sign-ups ending around then--just because for those of us moving in to dorms, that would interrupt crafting time. But if we do get partner assignments a little earlier in the month, we would be able to collect supplies in our hometown and brainstorm before leaving--and as a residential student with no car, I speak from experience when I say that it can be difficult to collect supplies at school  Undecided

Also, what about also sending an item inspired by a favorite character? I feel like those possibilities would be very cool--a doll, a journal full of character quotes, Luna's radish earrings, a Weasley Family Clock, the Prince's Potions book, etc.

And maybe a few "bonus" categories, or just structure the questionnaire to provide more information than those three categories? Just in case a partner wants to go a little above and beyond, ya know?
