Summer Camp Game #6

Powdered Moonstone & Syrup of Hellebore are for the
Draught of Peace
which calms anxiety and soothes agitation

The Mandrake Draught will cure someone who has been Petrified.

A Babbling Beverage, will make you talk nonsense.

If you accidentally lose the other half of your Fever Fudge, the antidote is Murtlap Essence.

My Owl Arrived!!!

I received my swap kit today from my awesome pal, Rowan Dragonsinger!
Here's some photos of my amazing kit....
Let's start with a group shot of everything all together.

Knitting needles and a crochet hook. Why both? Well, because.... Rowan sent me two workshops! Thank you so much!

For my Herbology knitting workshop, I received this beautiful lace beanie pattern complete with Gryffindor-worthy yarn to make it with.

For my Care of Magical Creatures crochet workshop, Rowan sent me this adorable lion pattern and yarn. My house elf nabbed the fun fur as I was taking this photo.

She says it's "Tickly"
(she also insists that I make the lion for her right away)

And what will I carry my WIP's in? This awesome hand-painted Gryffindor tote bag!!!

And I will mark my place on my lace beanie with these gorgeous Gryffindor stitch markers.

My house elf was very helpful while I was opening everything.... she made sure everything was in working order. "Yup, these magnifiers work great."

Clipboard, Jornal, Notepad & Coloured Pencils. (Rowan must've discovered my secret addiction to new notepads/journals)

This little iron-on owl is soooo cool!

My house elf, digging through my stuff again.
"Oooooh, pretty colours!"
I've actually been wanting one of these little kaleidoscopes for ages... Thanks Rowan!
Well, I must say, Rowan is awesome!!! Thank you so much for everything!!!

I'm here!

I'm back. And I survived the 10 hour drive (each way) with my two kids who were surprisingly good travellers! Yay! Only ten minutes of crying on the way there, and about two hours on the way back. It could've been a lot worse.
Now I'm going to find out what I'm supposed to be doing for Game #5.

Weekly Posting

Wow, I didn't think I was going to be so busy this summer! I thought I would have loads of time to dedicate to this swap but I've been crazy busy. Luckily, I do have my kit put together for my swap pal, I'm just waiting for her to move into her new place before I can send it off with Owly McFeatherpants.
Anyway, gotta go pack by bags so I can head out on the road again.... this time for a family member's wedding.

Summer Camp Game #3

To defeat my Boggart, which takes the form of Professor Snape, I imagine one of his own potions exploding all over him in class. Take that, Snape, I mean, Boggart!

Wish List

I just realized that we were supposed to make a wish list. I'm sorry I didn't do this sooner. I must've missed the post about this. Anyway, I just did a bit of internet browsing and came up with some links on the sidebar to things I think are cool. Note to spoiler: Please don't feel obligated to get any of these particular items, but it probably helps to get an idea of the things I like. ;-)

I'm Baaaaack!

Phew! I'm back. And everybody is healthy and happy. Camping with the kids was great! Only one big car barf on the way home.... so I'd call it a success! ;-)
Haven't checked on the blog or the rav site yet but wanted to post really quickly so I don't miss a week blogging.
