Well, the Umbridge frog was not the only great find I had last week.  First off found two great shirts for my husband's Arthur Weasley costume!  Then the perfect Arthur Weasley hat! 

Arthur is stylin' n profilin' )
Add that to the sweater we had already found and cordoruoy pants he has and it's coming along!
dragonsinger: (molly)
...like a toad needs one of their own.  And when I was in the thrift shop in Little Rock with a friend last week saw this and it just called out "Send me to Umbridge!"  So tomorrow, this will be finding its owl post way to [profile] lezlishae for her Umbridge

ETA:  While the photo don't really show it, the frog is actually PINK itself not just the eyebrows :D

Another Molly... Molly #10 ready to head to [profile] kimberly_elf 

And for those counting... 10 done, a bunch to go :D
dragonsinger: (molly)
Since I last posted what I've been up to.  That's because for the past couple of weeks things have been busy and active and hectic and along with trying to complete mollys for friends, I've also had to complete an afghan for a wedding present by this past Saturday.  Joe had a wedding to officiate at our church and I made this for the couple.

And the gift is done on time )
As well as did their programs and a ceremony booklet for Joe to use during the service and then be a keepsake for them after.

wedding graphics )
Also, have been working on some mollys and mailed out three so far so [livejournal.com profile] kadidid, [livejournal.com profile] overcast,  and [livejournal.com profile] lezlishae  watch your mailboxes!!

     Even Umbridge needs a Molly )

::Bites:: )
   Delana! )
Currently just assembled and am putting the trim on[info]kimberly_elf's and have [livejournal.com profile] hpmommy's waiting to be assembled and trimmed.  The body for [livejournal.com profile] hp5freak's is almost done and will be starting another batch of sleeves as I work on more bodies as well.

Taking a break -- well is it a break if you're working on Mollys as you listen? -- Joe and i went back to Sweet Bay Coffee House in Ft. Smith for the celtic music they have on the second Sunday of the month.  It had been a few months since we'd been there so it was a nice way to relax.

Fiddles and bodhrans and flutes, oh my! )

Now, back to work on Mollys!

ETA: By they way if you are keeping count, that's 9 mollys completed! ETAA: because I can't tell an Lj name from a forum name some days *lol*

On the trip home, stopped in West Virginia at a thrift shop for a break and found an awesome Arthur Weasley type sweater for Joe!

dragonsinger: (mariuspontalbon)
Yep, been a few days.  Partly because I spent Easter weekend being sick with a cold.  Partly cause I've been keeping busy

This is 4 of the 123 Ashie's I've completed and sent to [profile] ofenjen

Jen is going to be weaving in ends and gluing on eyes for her crewmates in Lumien House.

Finished will be something like this

Although we see the eyes do need to be bigger........  And no, this is not the "secret project"  She and I have been working on!  That's still a secret!

Had some SQUEE mail come from [profile] jewells68 Monday.  A hufflepuff tie, a very pretty Pontalbon scarf, some badge holders for my siggy tag that [profile] lezlishae made for me that I made into a nametag for PR, a mask base AND Vladimir the puffskein!

*cuddles Vladimir* 

Oh and did I mention I started two more molly sweaters, got the cap for 4 sleeves done last night!

Now back to the ashies and then at 200, on to green crocheted music notes!!!
dragonsinger: (Lady Mpontalbon)
Those of you who have read my Lj and other blog have already seen photos of Lady Macbeth!  She travels around with me and will be attending Phoenix Rising too!  So of course, Lady M will be needing outfits of her own.

Ok, went to Walmart this afternoon and detoured into the Dollar Tree near there. Had not been into Dollar Tree in a while so found a lot of new things... including these goodies for my House uniform.

The beret was found at Walmart marked down to $3 too :D

Pontalbon Accessories for Stylin' n profilin' )

The packet holds 5 of those bracelets that you snap and light up in the color shown. Not sure what I'll do with the glass stones but maybe decorate a photo frame for a shot of some of my friends. And the ribbon rosettes, not sure what I'll do with them but will find something :D

Also found a basket done in Ravenclaw colors for hubby :D

Lady M had a good time )
Joe enjoyed reading and music )

And so did the 15 Streeler that were accomplished while there as well )

Well, have been finding some great accessories to use during PR as Pontalbon uniform items.

Hat and shoes )
Another hat, tote, jewelry and hair ties )

Now all I need is to get out my spring/summer clothing and see what I have in their that will work.

Also, worked on my mask some...just needs feathers, ribbon and stick which will be added this weekend.

Sparkles! )
Are we there yet? :D
dragonsinger: (Pontalbon)
Last night, received my letter saying I was sorted into Pontalbon!  SQUEE  At the time, thought I had a skirt that would be good for uniform garb for me.  Now that I look at it not sure.

What do you think?

However did find a nice tie that can be used for Ravenclaw for hubby yesterday at a thrift shop

And finally took photo of my finished Molly #4 which needs to be packed up and mailed

Today was a complete Harry Potter Mail Day!!!

My HPCrafters Yahoo groups swap package came from my partner for the Try A New Crafts Swap today and it was some awesome items! Aline they are fantastic :D

Then The fantastic [profile] lezlishae  made me the most wonderful Hufflepuff paper doll that I special ordered from her [profile] psychonuttery  journal. You all have to go see her other dolls! They are awesome! Hugs to you Shae and cannot wait to meet you in New Orleans..... Oh and no I still do not have a house assignment for PR yet *grumbles*

I am sooo going to be ordering more of these! Shae your work is awesome.

and these did not come in today's mail but [profile] ofenjen  is making the coolest buttons, both designed and special orders and you can order them through her Etsy Shop. Visit her for your button needs! *runs off to order a Marius one :D

Spent the weekend working on odd projects. [profile] ofenjen  and I have a bit of a secret project going for PR and to that end, my hubby was drafted to assist with some needs. So dear that he was, he managed to accomplish this for us.

Thank you honey :) Course while he worked on that, I worked on my project for the HPCrafters Yahoo groups Creature Swap that's coming up next.

Hopefully tomorrow the supplies I ordered will arrive and I can also begin working on my ATC Swap for the HP Crafters Rendevous ATC Swap. As well as begin working on my mask for the Masquerade Ball and also for the PR Swap that the HPCrafters Yahoo groups is doing.

OH and I also finished a size 3-5 Molly...erm at least I hope its a size 3-5!  Won't know till it gets mailed this weekend and arrives in Canada!  Will post photos once my camera batteries recharge!
dragonsinger: (Default)
Well, I finished a set of Ravenclaw Wrist Warmers that will be finding their way to their new home at Kelly's soon as I get an envelope :D

Now on the needles is a hat

And got the back and fronts of the latest Molly done...even downed it some sizes and hopefully it will fit the size 3-5 that will be receiving it and have gotten this far on the sleeves.

So it's been a productive week again :)

And my nice non fuzzy photos were taken with my new camera!  YES!
