I like that drink idea- although you're right, it still makes it pretty random.  Going off that idea- I want to make a wand for every guest too, so what do you think if I labeled the wands, "this wand is for the successful"; "this wand is for the brave";  "this wand is for the brainiacs"; "this wand is for the loyal" and depending on which wand they chose dictates what house they're in.

Well, you'll know the guests beforehand, so you don't have to sort them on the day: you could just fake it. Ask them for , oh, I don't know, the last dream they remember having or anything really, and then the sorting hat can put them in the house you've secretly previously chosen. That way you could have balanced, or hilariously unbalanced, teams for later use.

You know, I though about that too... only problem is, I'm not very good at it!  I thought for sure my husband would be a Ravenclaw... he's an awful smart man... but when he was sorted in Pottermore, and I was watching him answer his questions I was amazed to see him answer like a Slytherin!  And sure enough, he was sorted into Slytherin!  I also desperately don't want my brothers girlfriend to end up in Hufflepuff with me, so I was going to sort her into any other house regardless, lol.

My sister, sister-in-law, BFF and I are collaborating in throwing me a Harry Potter baby shower in October.  We've got lots of great ideas thus far (ex: everyone who brings a package of diapers will be entered into the Goblet of Fire to win a prize!).  My first brain block has been, how do we sort guests into their houses?

I thought about using one of those paper fortune tellers (while the guest is wearing a sorting hat of course), but that would make the sorting pretty random.

The only thing I can come up with is a quiz for each guest to fill out.  Then the prefects can review the quiz and sort them.  Either, "well, you'e chosen mostly C's, so you're a Slytherin!" or "your total score was 15, so you're a Hufflepuff!"

I don't want it to be random, but I also don't want "Which animal do you like the best? Lion, Badger, Eagle or Snake?" They pick "eagle", and ta-da, they're a Ravenclaw.  ::yawn::

Thanks for the help!

Wow crafters.  Just, wow.  Such amazingness going on here.  

I'm so sorry I've been so quiet this whole swap. I'm normally in the thick of it all, but this has been a rough month.  

I want to thank our organizer for her patience and understanding with me!  Once I found that I was partnered with Pinkleo (OMG, the Pinkleo) I brainstormed my project to make sure I could live up to her crafting level- and then I was hospitalized with a UTI which normally would be no big deal except that I'm 4 months pregnant and my doctor thought it best I stay for FIVE DAYS!!  My crafting came to a halt.

A couple days after being released I began my project with the hopes of shipping a couple days late... then my puppy broke his arm and had to have surgery.  ::sigh:: this has not been a good few weeks.

BUT! I finished, I would've liked to add more detail, but at the risk of ruining it I decided less is more. I am shipping tomorrow and I received the most ADORABLE package from Pinkleo.  Straight of my pinterest:

Are those not the most incredible/adorable booties you've ever seen?  They are crocheted dragon scale rainbow booties. Hagrid says they bring good luck! I may need to make myself a matching pair!!

Again, thank you to everyone.  You all are so creative and skilled and patient and kind.  

BTW, HP movie marathon on ABC Family this weekend ::wink::

I finished the main part of WhistleFish's OTHPT!  (YAY!!!)  And I must say it's looking pretty good...you know it's good when your hubby compliments it (well my hubby anyways).  Just a little more on next part, then assembly, then send!  (Then OTHPT #2 for Lilak...have to get one more supply)

Don't rush on my account! Lol.  I've bought the base for my project, but I haven't officially begun yet. I will very, very soon though!!
