Well I think my first favorite is the Bubble head charm, who wouldn’t want to explore under the water whether it be ocean or lake! Plus how cool to see the merpeople! Second would be Accio because I like the idea of being able to summon something to you with out moving (I guess I am lazy ;) )

My First

Here is my first attempt at the Crayom Box Jacket. I choose to do it all out of hand spun. Well I modified the pattern to start and then realized that it wasn't going to fit me. I can never seem to stick to a pattern. When it was ready to sew up the seems I had to cut the back out and pick up and knit a new one. I knit one large mitered square for the back instead of the original little squares. This was not only my first Crayon Box Jacket but also my first time to cut a knitted item. I will have to admit it was very scary to me. I went to the ewe count and had the owner Penny Franz help me. It was all I could do to make the first cut. It turned out well I think and I needle felted the seems to make sure my hand spun didn't come apart. I entered it in the county fair and won Best of Show. Made me feel better that some one else liked it as well. I think I will follow the pattern next time ;)

Hello All

During the 1994 to 1995 school year, she put her name forward to compete in the Triwizard Tournament, and was chosen by the Goblet of Fire as the Beauxbatons Champion. She competed bravely, but the Tournament ended in tragedy with the death of Cedric Diggory. In the following summer, she took a part-time job at Gringotts Wizarding Bank to improve her English, and started dating co-worker Bill Weasley

Beauxbâtons Academy of Magic is a school of wizardry in France. Beauxbatons's current
Headmistress is Madame Olympe Maxime. The school Coat of Arms is two golden wands crossed over one another, each shooting three stars. "Beaux bâtons" is French for "beautiful batons." The "bâtons" part is presumably a reference to wands. The Academy is a glittering castle, probably newer and brighter than the Hogwarts castle. Both Hogwarts and Durmstrang are in castles; however

Veela are a race of semi-human, semi-magical creatures reminiscent of the
Sirens of Greek Mythology. They appear to be young, beautiful human women, and their appearance and especially their dance are magically seductive to all males. When Veela are angry, however, they transform into something more like Harpies -- their faces turn into cruel-beaked bird heads and long scaly wings burst from their shoulders, and they can launch balls of fire from their hand. (1994)
They have been known to take jobs as cheerleaders for leading
Quidditch teams, including the Bulgarian team during the Quidditch World Cup. Other hints also point to Veela being of eastern European origin.

Hey every one. I had a blast at Hogsmede. I didn't pal up with just one person but saw every one having a great time. I think I might have spent too much time in the Hogs Head. My head is still a bit fuzzy. I did come home with some fun things from Gladrags Wizardwear, Scrivenshaft's Quill Shop and Honey Dukes.Too much fun! I couldn't find any fun yarn or wool so candy, clothes and new stationarty will have to do ;)
