alright guys! picture time!!!! (sorry in advance for my sucky camera skills)
first up.. a piece of white chocolate that freakily resembles voldemort.. but tasted very yummy!
a really great tote bag in my house colors, and you can't really see it but she hand embroidered slytherin on top, along with stitching in the snake mascot. lovely job! i can't wait to use this bag
my very own pillow case with a stencilled dumbledore quote "it does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live" and althought it came out a bit wonky, it just makes it all the better cause it's hand sewn and stencilled
a really really really cool set of coasters with pictures from the book
my mom is eying these already!
candy!!! pumpkin pasties and bertie bott's~! and for the jelly beans, it's the same fabric as the pillow, plus she embroidered a "B" onto the front
i have to admit, this part is my favorite. i was honestly jumping around at this point and squeeling when i pulled out my very own finger puppet of snape!!!!! and he even had a little paper attatched that read "i am snape, the potions master" haha, i've been dancing around with it all night! and i was so excited about this part, i didn't even notice until later the very cute and detailed little cards from slytherin house and the twin's joke shop! jodi, you are so artistic! i think i *have* to make you something else later to send for all this stuff!!
this is really creative! she boxed this handpainted light bulb and wrapped it in paper with a note attatched saying that it's from the joke shop and it's to recreate the great hall ceiling in your own bedroom! i was thinking it would be those glow in the dark stars that you could stick on the wall, but man was i amazed when i pulled this baby out! i'm almost too scared to use it cause i don't want to ruin the paint job! but trust me, once i find the right lamp i'm gonna try this out! soo coool!
and last but not least, i'm an opportunist! i had to grab some scottish stuff since we're sending all the way across seas! so i got a new shot glass for my collection, a very cool scarf!!! some coins for my collection!! (very very happy for those!) and a slytherin pin (not so much scottish as i forgot to take the picture of this with all my other hp stuff
everything was so great! and so thoughtful how you tagged and labeled and wrapped everything!! i feel bad that i didn't do the same. not that everything is just thrown around, but it isn't packaged as cutely as you did yours.
oh!! i forgot to take a picture, but she also printed out a picture from the book and wrote a very lovely note on the back of it
thanks again autumn_jodi for everything! i loved it and my brother is jealous that i got such cool stuff from you!! i reall really really hope that you get my package by tomorrow before you leave
it's really unfair that i shipped mine out before you did and i got mine before you. stupid post office ::sigh::
thanks impalcey for organzing!! you did a great job of pairing me up with jodi
