New Product This Week 11/3/16: Give A Hoot

For the Month of November I am going to give a Hoot and embrace all things owl.

I have been for sometime wanting to make House specific owls for Harry Potter Inspired items.  After many drafts and several days worth of cramped hands I finally was able to come up with owls for 3 out of the 4 houses.  Subsequently I turned them into earrings.  The nice thing about the earrings is other than using the appropriate colored bead at the top unless you are in the know they are just cute owl earrings.

 

The first house that Success was found with was Hufflepuff. Wanting something small and cute and well relatively easy to draw cause I figured I would go through a lot of them it took a bit of time.  Believe it or not complicated is easier for me to draw... well the first time at least.

 

 

The Second house was Slytherin.  Wanting a Gothic feel freed me up to be as complicated as I wanted to be.  However after the first time drawing it my hand cramped up and was yelling at me for sometime so it was turned into a stamp as quickly as possible.  The nice thing about that is I can keep my prices reasonable.

 

 

The Last House is Ravenclaw.  It was the most simplistic to come up with since I tend to think about Ravenclaw as clean lined and classic.  So a picture of a real owl was found online and the silhouette was created.

 

Truthfully all the owls where turned into stamps because I wanted to keep the price at $12 a pair of earrings and really a lot of owls are used all over the place so there has been the embracing of as much lazy as can be gotten away with lately.

 

Hope you love the Owl Earrings all all the other owl related blog post this month.

Thursdays with Tig: I Love You, Orlando!

Woweee, what a blast I had last week! As you may remember, I was going to Orlando, Florida to do Omni Expo this past weekend. Well, I was able to go down a few days early and visit a friend of mine who's super awesome and works for Universal Studios, so I got to go for the first time ever! Needless to say I kind of fan girl'd out...A LOT. I bought my own wand at Olivander's and had way more fun than any adult is suppose to have running around and triggering all the events that you can at the Harry Potter Wizarding World. I swear it also had nothing to do with the fact that I was also getting to drink beer specially crafted for Wizarding World, thus making my craft beer nerd and regular nerd stupidly happy.

 

I didn't get a ton of photos, nor did I get any while I was at Omni Expo (which if you're in the area next year I highly recommend that you check them out as an attendee), but I hope you enjoy what I did take!

The Hogwarts Express going from Diagon Alley to Hogsmeade.

Beer taps inside Hog's Head Tavern at Hogsmeade, the only place where you can get my favorite of their three exclusive beers - Hog's Head! The hog's head behind the bar was animated, by the way!

The entrance to the Jurassic Park area of Island of Adventure.

The sign over the entrance to Hogsmeade which says, "Please Respect the Spell Limits."

Anyway, stay tuned, this weekend I'm off to do two craft shows in Raleigh and then next weekend I'll be traveling up to Hunt Valley, Maryland for (Re)Generation Who! See you crazy cats next time!

 

       

 

           

New Product This Week 07/23/15: School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Welcome to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

 

New this week is a fun Harry Potter Inspired Bracelet in honer of the School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. 

Instead of choosing a house how about celebrating the whole school?  I did this bracelet up all in purples and black because thous are the colors that come to my mind when I think about magic (and because purple is not a house color).  The charms are meant to represent the things that all houses and wizards can get behind.
