i am hating my laptop today. i uploaded pictures, but as i try to post them the message keeps crashing, so i'm going to post and modify as i add pictures...
you could tell from the outside that this box was going to be good. the owl tape is adorable, and from all the stamps i think molly weasley was helping out at the muggle post.
The inside looked even better. the packages were carefully wrapped in brown paper and red twine, so i let everyone at home help open something. we have 4 kids, so i was really happy the package was so family freindly, though i won't be sharing every thing.
The large oval shaped package is from my favorite store, honeydukes!. the pinwheel painted box is visible in the top picture behind the cardboard box. inside was a hand drawn deck of cards, a set of bernie bots bean dominos. and a set of mirrored memory tiles, in it's own tin.
we love board games so this was a big hit, and i loved the packaging
next was my house gift, a harry potter art book.
She used lots of cool paper, and embelishments. I don't know where she found them all! she also used bookpages, featuring the titlepage artwork. i could take lots of pictures of this!
For my favorite class, caring for majical creatures, there are 4 pairs of earrings. my daughter is certain that miss luna lovegood sent those radishes along just for her.
the deer are my personal favorite.
there are still a bunch of nifty extras to post, but i've had enough of my computer, so photos of the owl stationary, the snitch stamp, and snitch candy will be coming tommorow!
choclate snitches, simple but so cute, and tasty! hard too keep the kids hands off of these.
a handcarved snitch stamp, i've always wanted to try making one of these. i love it.
owl stamped stationary, the images are so detailed, really georgous.
and a harry potter t-shirt transformed into a tote bag. perfect for my library books!
