Harry Potter Magic Wand Pens
I had a large order for Harry Potter Magic Wand Pens
the other day.
They wanted 80 wands to give out to a group.
So I made 20 of each house style.
I wrapped each one in tissue paper of their house color and included a mini poster -
Gryffindor - red paper
brown wood style wand
I solemnly swear that I am up to no good mini poster
Hufflepuff - yellow paper
gold swirl wand
Muggles are our Friends mini poster
Slytherin - green paper
white antiqued wand
Don't be late - Apparate mini poster
Ravenclaw - blue paper
I want you for Dumbledore's Army mini poster
Here is the group before I finished wrapping.
All wrapped and ready to go to their new homes.
Thank you all for your support!

Woke up to snow again this morning. It's just in the air at this time. I think the Earth has warmed up some from the nice day we had that is wont stay long.
Between the snow/rain days we had a nice sunny day. I went for a walk and found some beautiful spring flowers peaking out to bask in the sun.
The cluster of Daffodils are actually open now.
Cute little purple Crocus was hiding- they are quite small so can often be missed.
Mother Nature is sharing it's love with a
piece of bark.
I am not sure what kind of flower this is but it's natural around here along with purple Hen-bit (we call those rabbit ears because the flowers look like little bunny ears).
I sat on the large limestone rock that is next to the creek and listened to the water fall over the dam. I closed my eyes and imagined I was at the ocean.
Pieces of nature to use in future projects,
thin strips of bark and sweet gum seed pods.
What a beautiful day! Hopefully I took in enough sun to get me through to the next warm day so I can do this again :)

Snow is in the Air
It's been a pretty mild winter this year but we did get a few nice snow falls.
The kids were a bit disappointed that it was not good packing snow so no snowman this year.
It was mostly just powder but it was beautiful!
I tried to capture the snow falling but that is not easy to do when you are cold and just want to get back it where it is warm.
Later we went for a walk when the snow stopped falling and the sun came out.
Look at those clouds!

The snow is gone now and we are starting to have spring like weather :)
