Well I've spoken to Samsara too.. it'd be great to try to arrange a little meeting! I'll be there in the June/July timeframe Smiley
Sadly I don't knit/crochet... but I love looking in pretty much any crafty shops! I'm sure I'd find something to buy- even though I probably wouldn't know how to use it!

Hey guys!
Just hoping to revive this thread as I'm planning a trip to the UK (from Aus)- and I will likley be staying in Northants (or more specifically Rushden) for a little while. I was just wondering if anyone could offer any updates on this info; for example, are the aforementioned car boot sales still organised? Or are there any new markets, craft shops, etc? Or even advice about which opp shops are decent would be great.

4  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / The Everything Harry Potter Swap- 1 Angel Needed (FOUND) on: February 14, 2008 03:14:36 AM
Hi guys,

She's in Australia and has waited patiently for her package since last August! It would be great to get a brilliant angel to craft the most awesome package possible in the shortest time possible!

Favourite character: Ron, Twins, Neville, Harry
Favourite character Relationship: Harry/Cho, Crabbe/Goyle HAHA!
Coolest concept/power/item in the wizarding world: Timeturner! Marauder's map
Favourite magical institution (ie: are you a Ministry of Magic backer, or a Death Eater? Maybe you would love to be in the D.A. or part of S.P.E.W): D.A.!! I hate the Ministry of Magic lol..
Favourite animals, beasts, creatures: nifflers, crookshanks, pigwidgeon, centaurs i suppose.. and if you listen to Pottercast - "Blast-ended skrewt, I choose you!" ahah
I am interesting in items that are (eg: house-based, character-based, magical creatures, magical objects, a mixture of everything!): character based, house based, magical objects, uhh pretty much anything interesting..Luna based! lol!
Crafts I admire: sewing, knitting, embroidery, stencilling/screen printing
Items I'd love to receive: Marauder's Map, stitch markers, I like things I can wear or use. hmm..check my wists

So any angels out there.. I hope to hear from you! I know there were a few people interested from last time around.. PM me again and let me know if you're still willing!

Thanks guys Smiley
Crafting in a HP animal theme was much harder than I expected.. so I considered myself a genius when I thought of the Aragog thing Smiley
p.s. mixymo I'm glad you think my wands are a cause for celebration Wink

Well.. here I am.. finally getting around to posting a few pics of what I sent Crow Jane.

I thought I took pics of the stationary I made her, because it was some of my favourite I've ever made.. but sadly you won't get to see them now Sad

The few pics I have:
Here's the package..

This is a Hallows Not Horcruxes t-shirt I made for her.. in red because it's her fav colour and she's Gryffindor too.. It says Hallows on the front and Not Horcruxes on the back.

This is Aragog's Box
It works on 2 levels.. a box with lots of "Acromantula" on it.. and Hagrid kept Aragog in a box in the castle. I tried to make her some animal-based crafts.. because that was her main interest.

You'll just have to imagine the rest!
A stationary set of about 6 cards from memory. A few featuring Neville, Dumbledore, the Trio, a Phoenix...
2 different pairs of Gryffindor themed earrings.
A Gryffindor themed necklace with a detatchable D.A. charm I made from clay.
A Messenger Bag Kit- with fabric, lining and a tutorial I got from Craftster Smiley
A wand made out of clay
A lion rubber stamp (for Gryffindor!)
2 silver Slytherin snake charms, because, as we discovered, Slytherin's aren't all bad! Wink

I think that was all..

Sadly I don't even know if she enjoyed the package.. But I hope you guys did!

You all are putting me to shame.  I've been swamped with school and decided to make most of my halloween costume this year.  I've been up to my eyeballs in peacock feathers but I'm really happy with how it turned out so I feel less badly about not being as far ahead as the rest of you!

I know how you feel! New job and an extra subject at uni are killing me! I'll have to put in the hard yards just before sending.. but I'll get there!
