Here are the pictures of the kit I sent to my Slytherin partner Daisy. I had a really fun time makeing the kit. I had the theme "Everything you need for a second term at Hogwarts" contents included
Yarn and knitting needles for Transfiguration
Sensantional knitted socks a.k.a. the standard book of spells grade 2
stitch markers for charms class
snake pendant as a defense against the dark arts amulet
milky way bars for those long nights in the astronomy tower
hand scrub and hand lotion-poitions of course
not pictured is a sprig of Heather for Herbology.
A hand sewn and quilted project bag with lots of pockets!!!
I painted the boxes and the snake and decoupaged the hogwarts crest on the trunk

On Holiday

Grompton and I decided to take a little vacation over to the Keys to visit our Wizarding family. I sent out my package before I left and I was so happy to see that my owl arrived safely and Daisy liked her package. Whew! I am glad that is over with. I will have to see if I will be able to do the next term. It has been so hard this term. I feel like I have missed out on too much of the fun! I can hardly bear to think of not attending Hogwarts though. Maybe in the fall things will ease up with Grompton in full time wizarding elementary school.

The kit is complete

I just need to finish wrapping up a few things and pack it up tight for our owl. I am going away next week and everyone knows that American Owls don't fly on July 4th so my dear husband will be sending our owl out to Daisy next week. I can not wait for her to get it. I really hope she likes it. I spent more than I initially budgeted for on the sock yarn, but in my opinion it is totally worth it. Most of the contents of the kit were either hand made or painted by me. I had so much fun doing it, but I am also glad to be finished.
