- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES

- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:
This is the end. July 21 marks the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the last installment of the Harry Potter septet that has held readers worldwide so enthralled. And as evidenced by the dozens of Craftster creations and swaps inspired by the Potterverse, the novels has sparked many a flash of genius in crafters worldwide too.

So join the End of Harry Potter Swap! (Note the italics: it is the end of the series, not necessarily of Harry himself. Everyone has their own opinion.)

The idea is to make stuff to prepare your swap partner for The End. You have a full month to craft, so let's say at least one big item (6+ hours of work, like a scarf) and two smaller items (1-5 hours of work, like earrings). Use your judgment. If you and your partner agree on a different arrangement, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

"What can I make," you say? Well, does your partner want to party in a bookstore on July 20, watching the clock tick down to midnight? Maybe he or she needs sugary sustenance like Chocolate Frogs and Every-Flavour jelly beans to stay up all night, or a nice John Williams soundtrack to relive the magic with. Does your partner like dressing up in full Hogwarts uniform to read the books? House scarves and sweaters are always popular, as are Dobby hats and socks. Is your partner a vampire? Consider sending a blood lollipop. (Please don't actually.) Is your partner evil and inexplicably besotted with Severus Snape? He or she may appreciate an item bearing Death Eater insignia, or a cold and tersely worded letter explaining why their love can never be.

Perhaps your swap partner longs to travel in time, in which case a Time-Turner would be a nice gift, but make sure they're not going to abuse their history-changing powers. Or your partner's off to Hogwarts soon and hasn't got a wand, and you're an apprentice wandmaker. Or maybe your partner wishes to be invisible, and by chance you have a fresh Lethifold skin just waiting to be made into an Invisibility Cloak. Or perhaps your partner is unflaggingly persistent/the brainy type/ambitious and merciless/suicidally brave; in that case, he or she may like to be Sorted into Hufflepuff/Ravenclaw/Slytherin/Gryffindor.

And of course, all readers need bookmarks.

I'm thinking hard on this one.  I've never done a Harry Potter swap before, but I love the series.  I might have to re read some of the books again to answer the questionaire.

I'll be watching this thread. If I have feedback from my first swap by the end of signups, I'm in. I suppose that means I had better get off craftster and start knitting, but this site is addicting! Grin

I know the feeling! Smiley  Looking through the galleries and other swaps is so inspiring!  I went around Joann's a couple of days ago looking for suitable HP stuff!  Grin
