I thought you guys might by intreasted to know that Target has Harry Potter notebooks and folders with each house on them. Mine had already run out of Hufflepuff in the folders but I got the other houses. If you want them get them when you see them as the items are not likely going to be re-ordered. They would be cute to add to a swap package. :)
speaking of swap packages I'm done with mine! well mostly I need to get the pattern I'm sending her and figure out how to mail it but yay for done-ness!
Off to go get dressed for work.
2. Daily prophet
4. Extendable ear
5. Radish earrings
6. Forbidden forest
7. Golden cherub
9. High inquisitor
10. Educational decree
Pictures 1,3,4,6 where taken by myself and can be made larger for more detail, the restof the pictures come from the internet.

Other things that are going on in my life: I passed my certification test to become a parapro. (teacher's aide) Now I just need to apply for jobs! I'm quite proud I must admit, to think that of all my friends I could be the first to have a proper job right after Uni. Many of my friends graduated much faster then I did and I've always felt a bit of an idot because I took longer (although if i'm honest my degree was harder then many of theirs). Still As a treat I allowed myself to by a few DVD's that I'd been wanting. I just watched one tonight :)
In my spare time I've been writting a short fanfic, or at least it started short it's now over 15 chapters long! It's making me want to do more creative writting with my own characters and not someone elses. I'll be sad when this story is finished.
Also in my spare time I've been working on a costume for Dragon Con, which is a convention held in Atlanta every labor day weekend. I love making costumes!For me costuming is about getting to be my favorite characters, it's like getting to play them on stage. I've been The Phantom of the Opera, Mr. Misto. from cats, Chauvillin (Scarlet Pimpernel), Snape, Sarah Jane Smith (Doctor Who) Frdod (LOTR) the list goes on. This year I'm doing another one from Doctor who a character called Sharaz Jek. I'm making the entire costumne from scratch so I've been working on a musslin version of the costume and making the mask. I'm looking forward to wearing it and showing it off in the parade. (yes I know I'm a geek but I love it) .
Um I guess that's it, I really shouldn't do these things so late at night, I'm sure I've spelled many things wrong and probly don't make much sence though most of the post but that's I'll edit it in the morning (or afternoon at this rate)

In The (#8) Chamber of Scerets, we also meet Dobby a (#9)House elf for the first time. Determined Dobby seeks to sabotage the return of (#10) Harry Potter to Hogwarts and is pretty persistent but is unsuccessful. After a few weeks at school, the deceased Ravenclaw student who haunts the girls lavatory, also known as (#11) Moaning Myrtle, shows (#12) Harry Potter and (#13) Ron Weasley an old empty diary that dropped through her ghostly form out of thin air!
Many nifty things continue to happen for the next several months… we won’t go into all the juicy details right now… however, the ending is prime reading indeed!! (#14) Harry Potter finally kills Tom Riddle’s (a.k.a #15 Voldemort) sneaky diary (which we now know is a #16 Horcrux) and saves the sister of (#17) Ron Weasley, (#18) Ginny Weasley!!!
Oh! Of course, we must mention that the thickheaded (#19) Gilderoy Lockhartunintentionally erased his own memory, so he won’t be back for book three, The (#20) Prisoner of Azkaban
