Not to rush you ladies....  But I just wanted to put up a reminder early in this thread that the sign up period for this swap is shorter than I usually do!  It's only a week this round, so don't let that week get away from you.  Cheesy

Came up with a plan for a project, but was nervous about making it, so I made a practice version on Friday which I was quite pleased with.  After that boost of confidence, I started the real one yesterday, and just finished!  Yay for one item done.  Cheesy

For anyone who might be interested, the new round of the Back to Hogwarts Swap is now open!  This round has a slightly shorter crafting period, in order to allow a break before the HP Holiday Swap, and the requirements have been lowered to 1 Medium & 2 Smalls.

In this Round of Back to Hogwarts, we will craft 1 Medium and 2 Smalls.  Please note this is a change from previous rounds!   If you are unclear on what constitutes various sizes, please check this post on the Swap FAQ's.

And to stretch your crafty muscles and to keep with our theme, you can choose to craft any three of the following six options...
~* an item based on your partner's House preference
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Shop
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Class
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Spell, Curse, or Potion
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Character or Magical Creature
~* an item based on your partner's favorite Quote or Magical Object[/b][/size]


PACKAGE EXAMPLES:
Your partner's House is Ravenclaw, fave shop is Ollivander's, fave class is Potions, fave Spell is Expecto Patronum, fave Character is Luna, and fave Quote is "It does not due to dwell on dreams and forget to live".

You could make....
a MEDIUM Ravenclaw Tote Bag, a SMALL wooden wand, and a SMALL Pair of Luna's Raddish Earrings. 
OR
a MEDIUM embroidered Expecto Patronum Hoopla, a SMALL Cauldron Candle, and a SMALL bookmark with Dumbledore's quote.


You can self-partner aka IYP for this swap, if both people wish to be swap partners.  If you do this, both people must PM the organizer before the close of signups to request being paired.  If you don't wish to IYP, don't worry!  I'll be happy to find you a fantastic partner.  Cheesy
