Wotcher, craftsters Grin?

Goldfish_girl hasn't been around for a few days, so I thought I'd post some pictures of what she recieved from me Smiley. Sorry if they (the pics) are huge Undecided.

The Lot:

This, right here, is my interpretation of the Half-Blood Prince's potions book, plus a hand-sculpted Hogwarts house pin:

The book started out a pretty ugly journal. I re-covered it with paper, painted it a rusty red, gave the page edges a gold leaf-effect, hand-drew the lettering, distressed and spattered it, and used old HP calander pages for inserts.

The writing on the very bottom reads "This book is property of the Half-Blood Prince!"

Here's the pin, again, plus a sad-looking Harry bookmark (bought) and a Harry and the Potters pin from one of their concerts.

And here are close ups of the greeting/note cards I made. The illustrations are all my own, and were printed on to card stock with my brother's computer (mine was out of ink Tongue).

Neville and The Unbreakable Vow:

The trio and The Kiss:

I also sent a sculpted Harry figurine, but he came out kind of botched and I was a little ashamed to take a picture Tongue. Goldfish_girl can post one, though if she wants Roll Eyes.
Well, I hope you all enjoyed looking at everything as much as I enjoyed crafting it!

 Grin I can finally post my photos - my internet was down for a couple days, not only could I not post my swap but I couldn't do anything internet related! I was losing my mind for a bit...  Wink

Anyways, here are the wonderful items from the package goatgoddess sent me:

First, two lovely little magnets - I could not get the pictures on them to show up with my camera, but there's Hedwig and then Harry and Draco. They're so great because my desk has metal bars and I'm decorating my office area in Moon and Stars / Harry Potter.

This is a great lightbox with a picture of the Trio in some pretty "dark" surroundings. I need to dig out my xmas lights to put inside. I'm going to keep it on one of the shelves on my desk closest to the outlet. Very cool!!

I laughed when I opened this box up - because it was very hard to open due to the paint and the Mad Eye Moody Trunck I had made goatgoddess was doing the same thing. I was so worried she wouldn't be able to get the darn thing open.

Inside the box, which I thought was very cool. I love little embellishments like this.

Here is some lovely harry potter fabric - this is sooo perfect because I've been finding old harry potter tshirts (from when the movies first came out) at the thrift stores and now I can make a great blanket for my office. Also some stickers - yay stickers!! and a lovely little note from goatgoddess.

close up of fabric

These might be my favorite!! They're tacks and since we're redecorating my room I can't hang my bulletin board yet. Well where I put it my cat seems to find it and either use the board as a scratching post or he pulls all the tacks out with his mouth and leaves them laying on the board. When I go to pick it up, every things falls to my feet!! I put these on the board to see if he could pull them out and he can't. I should have taken a photo of him trying though!! But I really don't want him chewing on them so I just put the board up on my highest desk shelf. Anyways, I love these tacks, they have so much personality.

Goatgoddess - Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!! I loved all of it so much!!

Alright, here goes...haven't posted pics before so let's hope this works so you all can see the great stuff I got...

If all goes well, you should be seeing the group picture!

And this is my scarf! This thing is huge, like a foot across and longer than I am tall! I can't imagine where she found the time!

The front of the journal...

and the back!

A bracelet with all sorts of hp pics in the little frames...

The Mirror of Erised in compact form!

And inside!

The wonderful bag in action (already stuffed with things, as you can see!)

And a wand that her friend sent along, so I can practice that ever-important swish and flick!
Thank you so much potatovixen! ^ - ^

My own dragon, owl, and quidditch ball. Ha. Too cute

And a HP CD.

Loved this swap.

I'm especially happy with the quidditch turtle becase I saw something like this on another swap and wanted someone to make me one.  Thank you fairyprincessbeanie baby.

Sorry about wonky pic. My camera was acting weird.

Hey, everyone! I just got my package from Goldfish Girl, and it's brilliant!

Here are the splendid, fuzzy, dark mark armwarmers GF Girl made me. You see, the left one has the dark mark knit in white (Sorry, it was kind of hard to photograph).

GF Girl also made me this awesome Morsmordre bag (It also has a dark mark on the inside of the strap, but I forgot to get a pic Tongue)!

And lastly, here I am, sleepily modeling the best HP scarf and hat set ever Honestly! It all look really well made. I can barely believe I've finally got a Harry Potter scarf, and in my preferred pattern, too!

Thank you so much, Goldfish Girl, for swapping with me, and Sad. for organizing! It's been, in the imortal words of Fred (or George?) Weasley, "...Positively Corking" Wink.

Let me start by saying that my legs hurt from running up and down the stairs (and almost tripping and falling on my face when the mailman got here).

Totally worth it. I LOVE the stuff I got. It just got here about ten minutes ago, and I have just enough time to post a few pictures before I go to work. ^_^

The almighty group shot! Contents include:
a supercool messenger bag
a t-shirt that says "Kill the spare"
a "self-inking quill" (which i will totally use in class. ^_^)
three stamps
two bracelets with the trapped bar pattern from the PoA/GoF scarves. (in gryffindor and slytherin colors)
a note with the most adorable little self-portrait of 'Chibi Ky' with her swap package.

Close up of the quote on the bag. This is actually my favorite quote from pretty much the entire series, so I just about peed myself when I saw this.

the sides of the bag have pretty stars.  Grin

And a close-up of the t-shirt, which I will almost certainly be wearing to school tomorrow.

Thanks so much, ChibikoKy! I love everything! The swap anxiety is over! (And I use way too many exclamation points, too.) By the way, I meant to include a CD in your package, and I can't remember if I sent it or not. I haven't seen it lying around the house anywhere, so I'm assuming I sent it, but I just wanna make sure.  Roll Eyes

Thanks sad., for organizing, it was great!

Well, wait no more!  I braved hell itself (Walmart) with two small kids in tow so that I could finish uploading the pics.  And now, without further ado:

close-up of the marble magnets...notice there are several of Snape *heart flutters*  Grin

Scarf bookmark!

The super-cool Dark Wizard address book, complete with:

DARK WIZARD ADDRESSES!  How cool is that?  You just would not believe how impressed I was with that! Grin

You are now free to envy me.  Go ahead, you know you want to... lol

I'm in collage heaven   Grin    Wow ShyArtist I bow down your collage skills, the detail is wonderful - I love all of it. The journal/scrapbook is so nice - pictures do not do it crd. The cover has so much texture and layers, it's wonderful - The bookmarks are so nice with a quote from each of the champions on the back. The two pictures of Harry and his name are mini canvas's - they are ultra cool (plus she gave me a website for more ideas www.canvasconcepts.com - can't wait to check it out) Boy that trunk is too cool - it's Mad Eye Moody's trunk and inside is some very nice paper - will make good use of them  Grin
Thanks so much ShyArtist you outdid yourself.

Here's a picture of GreenWhimsy's fabulous, hand sculpted "Bathtime Harry" doll. He's currently missing his towel. We don't want to talk about it.

And here's Me cheesing it up with semi-naked Harry (he's wearing trunks and shoes).

OK.  I'm more testing what I've learned than showing pics, because, as I said earlier, they suck.  Anywho, here we go (I hope...):
Tom Riddle shirt...

Patches - a few chapter illustrations, Slytherin crest and another Tom...

More later (but not from me - lol).
Yes, I did make more than that!! Grin

ETA: Yay, it worked!  *does her freaky little happy dance* Grin  Woohoo!!!

I got the package from redpopsicles today!!!  Check out the sweet stuff she sent me:

An awesome stencilled Tshirt that fits me perfectly (I'm wearing it now Grin ), 14 marble magnets, a knitted bookmark in Slytherin scarf style, and a Dark wizard address book!!!

And here's the back of the shirt!  The stencilling on this shirt looks amazing, I am so in love with it!! Grin  And the bookmark is already in a book!

I will post close-ups too, but my camera died as I was uploading the pics.  Those were the only ones I managed to get on my computer before the batteries went.  So, off to Wal-mart, and then, more pics!!!  Because you guys have got to see the inside of the address book - it's so cool, I never would have thought of it, but it's such a great idea!  *leaves you in suspense - mwah ha ha!*

Thank you so much, redpopsicles!  I love everything!  I can't wait to show my best friend, she'll be so jealous!

And Sad., thank you so much for organizing!  I'm so glad this was my first swap, it was a great experience!

(Sorry about excessive exclamation points, I'm a bit excited. Grin )
