Squee!!! My package came in!!! I'm so excited, I love all the objects!

Prepare you're wisting fingers everyone!

For my house, Gryffindor, we have this lovely handmade journal ( and I mean completely hand made!)

It's cloth bound, and the lion and text on the front is embroidered. The inside has gold paper with a really neat crinkled affect, and the first page has "I solemnly swear I am up to no good." and the last page has 'Mischief Managed!"

Here's a shot of the first page Wink

Second, for my class (Potions) I have this brilliant necklace from Snape himself.

It's got a lovely long chain and is super light. I love it Grin

Third, and most awesomly, I have, from my store, Weasley Wizard Wheezes, a infantly incredible, undescribable, bright, fun, and extremely enviable, tote bag!!!

Its wonderfully big and is a really comfortable length. I am completely in love with it ^_^

Thank you so much, Oddacity! You're the best!

AHHH I RECEIVED FROM JAMIEK79!!!  I actually received yesterday but I had the busiest day so I only got to post now.

My swap package had literally been taunting me all day because it got to my apartment in the afternoon, but I had class all day, and then in the evening I had practice to go to and a performance to do. And all I wanted to do...was go home...and rip open the box that was sitting on my bed. But the important thing is that I DID get to open it.

So, I got the best box of goodies. Ever. No really.
Don't believe me? READ ON!

Since I started my last year in school this year, my parents thought it would be nice to send me some things I might need from home, especially after the Battle of Hogwarts last year.

So once I pulled out the wrapped packages, I saw this adorableee owl! I actually squeed. My friends (who really wanted to open the package with me) all definitely gave me looks. HE'S SO CUTE! Jamiek79 clearly did her stalking well, I kind of have a thing for owls Smiley Here's all the awesomeness, all wrapped up in cute little parcels with Hoots (he had a long journey and has to spend some time at my place Smiley )

Inside parcel number 1 I found this adorable pygmy puff from Weasley's Wizard Wheezes! And it's even in my favorite color! I think she crocheted her Smiley I still have to come up with a name for her (my friends' suggestions were Pygmy the Puff, Puffy the Pygmy Puff, etc. so needless to say, I am still thinking -__-). She's so cute and fuzzy, she has definitely found a welcome home with me! Smiley

Next I opened up parcel number 2 which held this beauuuuutiful Ravenclaw hat and cuffs set! They are so beautifully made and so soft, she did such a wonderful job! Apparently, I was going to be receiving two Pygmy Puffs, but the second one (Ezmereleda) was giving everyone trouble,  so in a fit of anger she was transfigured into a hat and cuffs hahaha, I don't mind! Smiley

Next up I unwrapped the smallest package, and in it I found a Hedwig ami!!! Straight off of my wists! Cheesy AHHH SHE IS SO CUTE. Again, the crocheting, wow. There are even gray flecks on her feathers! It's a replica to remember her by because I was so sad when she died. Sad I really was.

Here are the two adorableee owls together. I definitely snuggled with them last night when going to sleep Smiley

So this next item especially blew me away. When I saw the shape of the box, I guessed that it was a wand, and I was right, yay Smiley But, when I actually opened the box, it was the most LEGIT wand I have ever seen. Not made out of paper, but real wood, and with a handle and everything, and such realistic coloring! Wow, just wow. ALSO, how on earth did you know that my favorite wand core is the phoenix feather? I don't minddd the others but phoenix is by far my favorite.

Finally, from Molly and Arthur Weasley, a beautifullll agenda book with a piece of what is left of the Marauders' Map. I was so astounded by this as well, because she printed out, every single page in the agenda book, put some of my favorite Harry Potter quotes at the bottom of each page, and bound the agenda. And I love how I can add in the months, so I can use it for whenever!

Here is all of the awesomeness all together:

THANK YOU JAMIEK79!! I absolutely love everything. I feel so lucky Smiley
Crafting for you has been so much fun, and thank you for such a wonderful first swap experience!
