My Kit Arrived! :)

According to, my kit arrived today! I am so excited to open it, however, I won´t know for sure it arrived until probably tomorrow or later this week when DBF goes to pick it up. I will also not find out what is in it, nor be able to post pics, until I get back from Mexico! lol So, pics will be here the qweek of August 18 when I am home and have unpakced and gotten ready for school. Sorry for the delay everyone!

Brand New HBP Trailer WB Official

The timing of this trailer leads speculators to believe that this trailer will be released with the new Mummy Movie. Anyway it is fabulous!

ETA: If you go to AOL has 3 different sizes of HD versions of this trailer to watch including November at the end instead of This Year and the .com website instead of the .uk website. Very nice resolution go lookie!

Missing Kits

As you know, the final day to mail your kit to your spoilee was July 25. I am aware that there are a few kits currently in the process of being delivered by owls. If you have NOT yet received your kit from your spoiler, I would appreciate knowing as soon as possible so I can follow up. If you have mailed your kit but have not provided the delivery confirmation number, please get it to Lavender Ackerly or me immediately so we can cross you off the list. If you haven't yet mailed your kit, it is imperative that you contact me right away and let me know when you expect to mail.

We are really hoping that we won't need to send out angel kits. This has been such a fun term at Hogwarts. Let's not ruin it by not living up to the responsibilities each of us assumed when we enrolled.

My Swap Package is here!

Here is a small teaser. You'll have to go to my blog to see the rest!

Here is where you can see all the action!


Just a sample of how much Stu is better than anyone. I'm just sayin'

Congratulations to everyone who earned a badge this swap!


Headmistress Wartbobble and I would like to say a HUGE thank you to all who donated items to be used as prizes or in angel kits. We got a tremendous selection of items...enough for at least 2 full angel kits with plenty of things left over for prizes. We honestly didn't know if this method of putting together angel kits and prizes would work, but it seems to have been a success. It has lifted the burden off any one person to put together more than one kit as well as lifted the financial burden off others to provide prizes. Everyone at Hogwarts is truly generous and I hope that in the future more students will participate. If everyone donated just 1 item we may be able to collect enough for end-of-term prizes for everyone!

Thanks for another great term at Hogwarts. Headmistress Wartbobble, your prefects, headgirls and I had very few issues to deal with. It was a fun term and I personally hope to see many returning students next term.

Finally posted pictures of my swap kit!

Cecilia Kettleburn sent me this fantastic package:

HSKS5 Swap Package

Go check out the details on my blog.

Owl came!

So I got an owl from pal Minerva Dumbledore this week. Thanks Minerva! I already started a sock in the yarn it's so soft and yummy, so hard to resist casting on. Click on the picture to see more on my blog.

Owlbert has arrived!!

This morning I had a visitor from Australia, Owlbert who is Eleanor Wigworthy's owl. He had the most AMAZING kit for me. I will post pictures later today. All I can say is WOW! As I am writting this I am sucking on a sherbert lemon, which is amazing for me. I have a corn allergy, but candy outside the USA is not made with corn syrup and as I have not had candy in over 3 years, lets just say I am in heaven!!! I have prepared a small owl feast and will let Owlbert take a nice long break before I arrange a portkey for him back home. Thank you so much Eleanor, I absolutely love everything!!!

Pictures of my kit (finally!)

I finally have pictures up on my blog of the fantastic kit Calliope Candleworth sent me earlier in the term. I apologize for the delay--I kept looking for my camera's software for my computer, and I ended up not even needing it!

First Teaser Trailer Released

With the premier of The Dark Knight this very short teaser trailer for Half-Blood Prince was released and I'm warning you it really is a tease!

Saturday, July 19, 2008

Congrats to Ursula!! ~ Round Three Winner

Congratulations to
Ursula Longbottom!!

I know that we all have a special place in our hearts for the Longbottoms, so it is with great respect and honor that I say congratulations, Ursula :) It seems that we should have some of these Huffle in Ravenclaw, no? Quite intelligent they are LOL Here is Ursula's account of how she found the snitch:

Well, there are only 2 male students. The clue mentions a tower, and Stuart is in Ravenclaw.

On his blog there is an adorable kitten post. The clue was in the comments, which lead me back full circle to Snitch Release #1 (In May posts), where the original post was altered to include the last clue and link.

Congratulations Hufflepuff!

A Big Congrats from Gryffindor

To Hufflepuff

Great Job on Finding the Snitch!!!

Ring around the rosie,
a pocket full of nargles,
ashes, ashes, we . . . . all . . . must
look to a male student to find the
first and only clue.
Don't you love the way some
animals can play with their tails?
I imagine one of the cutest
animals could be hiding in one
of the Hogwarts Towers.


Go Gryffindor!!!!!

Distract tactics :)

No need to look any where else folks ... who can resist such cuteness!?

Calling Cat Lestrange!!

We know you are out there, and your quidditch post needs to go up ASAP!!!
Hurry girlie!!!

Get 'em Gryffs!

Gryffindor 4th House Quiz Winner!

I apologize to everyone that I am last posing our lucky winner! Thank you to everyone who participated.

The winner of our 4th House Quiz is............

Celestina Densaugeo

Congratulations!!!! Keep an eye out for an owl headed your way!


When I returned to my dorm room last evening, exhausted after a long hard day of helping Professor Lufkin grade parchments and extracredit DADA practice, I discovered a very tired little owl ensnared in some of Fleur's peacock feathers. Poor little thing...I rescued it and gave it something to eat and drink before my eyes fell on the corner of a box addressed to me sticking out from under my bed. I can only guess that when the little owl found itself held prisoner in peacock feathers that it dropped the box and I most likely kicked it when I hurried to free the little guy.

Anyway, once the owl was safe I ripped into the package and discovered a wonderful swap kit from my spoiler, Catriona Lestrange. I can't wait to share the things she spoiled me with! I love it all. I will take photos and post them to my blog this evening.

Thank you, Catriona!! I'm very pleased.

Not Ready for Awards

Hello, everyone :)

I'm waiting on a little dialogue from my wonderful prefects so that I can make decisions on who will win the awards previously suggested. So, please give me another day or so to get this accomplished. Thank you!!

Owl Arrival

I am pleased to announce the arrival of the Best Spoiler EVER!! Ophelia Hopkirk's owl arrived carrying a fantastically magical box with lots of wonderful goodies. As soon as Mr. Crookshanks arrives home to fix the wand that connects the two muggle toys I will post still pictures of the kits. Have no fear Ms. Hopkirk, I took plenty of them. I will put one here
 and then more on my personal page

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH. You are the best.  

Package Brought by Spider!

My Package from Lily May Clearwater arrived and was PACKED with goodies - check my blog for more pictures of all the goodies.

That was some kind of PACKAGE!!!!!

I have been spoiled beyond my wildest imagination!! It took two owls to bring all this stuff to me... Emma Ravenclaw - you are the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! More pics on my blog.
Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!

P.S. I absolutely wish to nominate this for best package! I will do more pictures in a couple of days.

Thanks so much, CLIDONIA!

My awesome housemate Clidonia Acromantula sent me my prize for winning at House Quiz 5 today! She knows I need caffeine and yarn to make it through the rest of the semester!!! The coffee is Starbucks and the yarn is 440 yds of Superwash Merino in the "Crookshanks" colorway from Shelby B's Designs. Beautiful!

Thanks so much, Clidonia - you rock! HUZZAH!

Thanks Antonio dela Weasley!

A very tired owl arrived at my doorstop today! Just look at everything he brought! Check out my blog for more detailed photos and descriptions! Thanks so much Antonio! I am sooooo spoiled!!!


Minnie my poor little owl couldnt handle the package by himself. I fear he is following in the footsteps of Errol. So I had to borrow one from some one else. You can therefore expect a couple of boxes in the next couple days. I do feel the need to tell you I got home and found several of the extras still on the couch so I will most likely send you a third goodie bag soon....



Look What the Owl Brought!

I'm late in posting this formally (but not in sending e-mail thanks, and posting to my own blog!) - but Fleur Dolohov's Owl dropped this wonderful package by last week, and I've been enjoying it ever since! Just look:

I LOVE everything - she was super-sweet when putting this package together! Again, thankyouthankyouthankyou, Fleur!!!



Ok Slytherins, Put your Quidditch goggles on, your socks on, and get your brooksticks in most excellent shape!

Arabella Moody

Miranda Moonstone I thak you :o)

The post man came this morning...

House Points

Hello, all!

Time for a House Points Update before we head into the last stretch of the swap.

By now most of you should now that the early deadline for sending your package has been extended to July 14th. The final send date is July 25th. If your package is not sent by that time you will not be allowed to join further HSKS swaps. I want to make that clear. If there is anyone that has not received their package by that date or heard from your partner as to whether or not they sent your package, please contact your prefect and arrangements will be made to have an angel package sent out to you as soon as possible. Reminder: Delivery confirmation is your friend!! It is very important to get delivery confirmation if you plan on sending within the next two weeks. We need to make sure that you actually sent your packages to your partners.

Drop outs and Reassignments
At this time those that have been in jeopardy of being dropped for not posting in their blogs for over two weeks or not contacting their partners will be dropped from the swap and not allowed to return for future HSKS swaps. Partners will not be reassigned if packages have already been sent, but if your spoiler has been dropped or MIA for over two weeks at this point, please contact your prefect and we will work on either making contact with your missing partner or we will get an angel package ready for you.

House Points
These percentages reflect the level of participation since the last Quidditch match. Ten points per person have been deducted for each week that they did not post.

Previous Points

Gryffindor 75%

Hufflepuff 99%

Ravenclaw 79%

An owl...

stopped by my house today with a wonderful package from my spoilee. Please, please check out my blog. This is such a cool kit!

I'm not entirely sure why my link isn't showing up. I put it there. I even went back to double check that I put it there but it still isn't showing up. I don't get it. You should still check my blog though. :D

Gryffindor House Quiz Prize

I have just received my prize for winning House Quiz No.3 from our dear headgirl Millicent Brocklehurst. It is a skein of divine Black Bunny Fibers 100% Blue Faced Leicester sock yarn called "Audacity", and a pattern for "Primavera Socks". Thank you - I love them, and can't wait to cast on...
