Here is my awesome magical loot from AugustBell Smiley

First, the package came by Hippogryph Mail!

Love it!

The first thing I unwrapped was this:

A beautiful Ravenclaw wreath! Cho Chang sent along a note telling me that I won this in the raffle at last week's Ravenclaw Alumni Event. Awesome, I never win anything! Cheesy

Then, I noticed something hooting and rustling around in the box. I opened the package to find this:

This is Hermie, my new owl from Eeylops! He is two years old and loves chocolate mice. He's going to fit in great here--I just love him! Cheesy

Then, this:

A second-hand copy of "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" for my Care of Magical Creatures class! This was accompanied by a note from Seamus Finnegan explaining that a previous owner had taken notes in the book, which are fantastic in themselves! The book has a lovely magical space for holding goodies and is filled with teeny cute containers and some beads, buttons, and other goodies.

Everything is fantastic--thanks so much, Taylor! I'm going to get your package out the door this week and hope you like it just as much. Love this swap!

Actually no, I was at goodwill and looking for things for my husband (He's a game design student and harvests pieces from common games for the games he makes for class assignments). I saw that game and I knew I had to send it even though I was already sending lots of things.

Its the item that I struggled to ship. The game box was so large I couldn't fit it in any box. I even discovered that I could fit everything except the jars inside the game box, but since I couldn't figure out how to ship it, I took all the pieces out and sent them separately. Being a game from Goodwill I hope everything was intact and playable.

Here are the goodies I received from whenindoubtsew, prepare yourselves...

This is the small. I know, nothing small about it! I was very spoiled. She admits she cheated (in a good way) and did a little from both of my favourite shops. From Twillfitt and Tattings we have a dress form pincushion: what an amazing idea! From Madam Pimpernelle's there is a perfume locket and a sugar scrub. In addition to all of this there is a makeup bag with some house goodies in it (earrings, four hair pins and bracelet).

Have you recovered? Well now prepare yourself for...

...the medium! Favourite house, Slytherin. I listed a bunch of things that may give her ides of what to craft. I expected I would receive maybe one of them. I received pretty much all of them! Tea towels, a pot holder and 2 mugs, all crafted with care.


...the large! Favourite class, Herbology. Can you possibly believe she made me pajama pants from a herb print material, sewed slippers lined with the same herb print material and screen printed a Herbology pajama top!

Needless to say I am very overwhelmed and grateful!
Thank you whenindoubtsew  Smiley
