DIY: Book Ornaments

Hi!

Another DIY-video! Totally stole the idea from Pinterest, and other crafters, but wanted to give it a go and figured I just as well could show you guys how I made it. You can make smaller ones as well, and turn them into a pendant necklace, charm bracelet or even earrings.

I would love to hear your experiences in completing this DIY, so feel free to leave a comment below!

Q & A – This week: 6/2017

We have now made it to week six in twentyseventeen. I feel the new year was not that long ago, but at the same time it’s been a while. Either way, here are this weeks questions.

⚡ Is there a job you’d want to have, were you a part of the wizarding world?
– I would like to be a teacher at Hogwarts, probably in charms or muggle studies.
Did you know, I’m a teacher in the muggle world as well? If not teacher I would
try my luck as a journalist. Not the Rita Skeeter kind, but a good and fair one. 

⚡ Which shop in Diagon Alley or Hogsmeade would you like to visit?
  – Of course I would visit every single one, but if you had to pick one, like a
favorite…ooohh…For the first time visit, it would be Ollivanders. But if I was a
regular in the wizarding world, I think maybe Flourish & Blotts, the book store.
One, because I love books, and two, I could read about all the magical things
and learn so much! Still, I would love all of the shops, like Wiseacre’s Wizarding

              Equipment, Honeydukes, Weasleys’ Wizarding Wheezes, and so forth. 

⚡ What is your quidditch position?
– On the stands. I would fail all my flying classes, on the simple fact that I would be
terrified. I can do rollercoasters, but heights are terrifying to me. And to be on a broom,
high above the ground..not gonna happen. If I had to pick a position I think I would say
beater. I could swing a bat from time to time. Catch and throw balls while riding a
broom needs a little more coordination than I have whilst on a broom.

⚡ Harry Potter this week?
            – I recently bought the two-disc special edition of all the Harry Potter movies, so almost
every day this week I have been watching some Harry Potter, either movie or bonus
features. It’s been a blast. And I’ll keep watching next week as well. While watching
movies I’ve been knitting. I started way back in January, but I’m a slow knitter. I’m
making a scarf, and soon it will be as long as I am!

How was your week? Any Harry Potter in there?           

DIY: Hogwarts Trunk

Hi!

Just made this video, where I show you how I made my very own Hogwarts Trunk. It can be made from all kind of sizes. I thought this suitcase was the perfect size for me to keep the movies, and some other items in. What you guys think?

January Haul

Last weekend I went on a shopping spree and picked up a ‘few’ things I’ve had my eyes on for a little while. And some things I have not seen before, but could simply not walk past.

haul-january-6
I don’t have any of the Funko PoP!Vinyl figures, and that is a plan for the future. But this little cute keychain have now the honor of being the first, even though it is a bit smaller than the rest.

haul-january1
A must! The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Screenplay. And it is so pretty! So many little details that pulls it all together to a piece of magic.

haul-january5
Picked up another book about the Fantastic Beast movie. It has behind the scenes and little replicas of props used in the movie. I also bought the badge pack with five badges. Perfect to put on my bag or jacket. For the next film, I will probably wear all five of them.

haul-january2
Next is this Pop-up Gallery. It has five scenes from the wizarding world, both Harry Potter and Newt Scamander is to be found here. You can put one scene up for display like on the left, or you can keep it in your bookshelf and just browse through from time to time.

haul-january3
Last thing is this lunch box. Sadly it is not magical, and your lunch will not magically appear when opened, but it is still cool. It is a little big to put in my backpack every morning, but every now and then, or for a picnic in the sun.

What you guys think of my purchases? Do you have any of those items yourself?
