I got my angel package today, and it is AWESOME.  Prepare to be amazed!

My house was Hufflepuff, and rossie made this awesome tote (you can NEVER have too many totes):



She said she'd made the badger patch, but thought the H looked better, and figured I could find a use for the Badger.  You bet I can, because it's adorable!

My class was herbology, so she made a pretty little journal for me to document my plant findings:



AND there are these awesome printed bags, which I'm not sure I can use as bags.  I'm thinking of framing them, but I can't decide if I want them all framed/collaged together, or in identical seperate frames, or in wildly different, eclectic frames.  I already know where I could hang them, though!



Finally, for my shop, Dogweed and Deathcap, the COOLEST PINCUSHION/CONTAINER EVER.  Seriously, this picture does not do it justice (but it's already dark out, so no good close-ups to be had, unfortunately).  The wonderful detail and hand-stitching is amazing!  I mean... amazing.  She also included some cute beaded pins (why didn't I ever think of that?!).  It's also a re-purposed container, which I love (recycling) and it smells soooooooo good.  Cheesy



Thank you rossie, you're the bestest angel EVER!

HUGE thanks to pinkleo for being awesome and bubblegum_phoenix for being my hero Smiley

Thought I might post a few pics of what I sent to my swap partner, as it seems she hasn't be able to, but I don't have pics of all of them.  She liked the quill shops so I made a double-plume peacock feather quill with a filigree cap:





For her house... she picked three, so I got a little A5 sketchbook and made three black fabric slip covers, each with a felt replica of the Ravenclaw, Slytherin and Gryffindor house crests.  Sadly, no pics though.  Which is a shame 'cause that Gryffindor crest kicked tooshie.

Her favourite class was all of them, which resulted in a time-turner made from some gold wire hoops, a gold filigree disc that began life as a chandelier earring base and some beautiful champagne silver crystal beads.  I made a little box, a letter from the ministry and a class schedule (which is the only thing I have a pic of)



This Hogwarts silhouette paper lantern was an extra:

Love the lantern and the quill! It sounds like the rest of your package was great, it's too bad we can't see it.  Sad
