Oh, Ravies...

Please let me know the following:

Have you sent your pal's box?

Have you received your pal's box?

What was your favorite part of this swap?

Any other thoughts?

Will you back for round 4?

It's been a joy to be your prefect. I hope you had fun, and I hope you enjoyed meeting new friends.

And finally, Neila was the winner for the final round of quidditch. I know we didn't have 100%, but I couldn't resist. I hope you enjoy your surprise. Please send me your address.

And (yes, again), Hettie was such a huge support for cheerleading that I have chosen her as the most studious of us all. I need your address as well.

Cate, your box will be going out in about a week. I have to travel for work, and I won't have time to get to the post office before then. I hope it's okay.

I've sent and got mine and I loved the swap. I'll probably be back, and I have nothing else to add :) I can't pick a favorite part, but It's been great being a Ravenclaw!

Neila said...

I have mailed my box. I haven't received my box yet, but my upstream partner has contacted me. She's sent a teaser owl and is waiting for the yarn to arrive. I'm not at all worried.

This was my first HSKS and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I've made some new friends and discovered lots of new sources for all kinds of knitting related products. I have only rediscovered knitting after a very long hiatus so it's been fun for me to ooohhh and ahhh over all the projects completed by others.

I really enjoyed the Quidditch matches. I may have gotten a wee bit over enthusiastic but that's what makes it fun.

I will definitely be back for HSKS 4 and hope the rest of our House returns as well. We can only get better!

Thank you, Tia, for being such a great prefect!

I received my package from Devin a few weeks ago now... and I sent my package to Sonia today. She should have her owl by the end of the week. I probably will not participate in a swap in January.. I'm hosting one myself in February, and I need to back off on swaps for a bit.. :-) I've really enjoyed this swap though and will pay attention for future HSKS swaps :-)

My favorite part of the swap has been coming up with new and creative 'Harry' themed things to include in my package.. and making some new friends too!

Thanks for being a great prefect!

Cate said...

my package will go in the mail tomorrow (finally remembered to buy packing tape today). I haven't received mine yet, but I did just hear from my pal that it's in the mail, so should be here soon.
I have enjoyed the swap, it was a lot of fun, and I'm quite excited about getting both my parcel and my prize.
I don't think I'll be back for the next one, but not because I didn't enjoy it, as I did, but rather because I think I'd like to try a different one next time.

Peggy said...

I've sent mine but not received or heard from my upstream partner recently. Not worried yet though...

Not sure if I'll be back. We'll see.

Jennifer said...

I've sent and received mine. The swap has been lots of fun! I had a hard time keeping up with the Quidditch trivia and such, so I'll have to think carefully before signing up again.

Julianne said...

I sent a package but haven't gotten my package yet. I've had LOTS of contact with my upstream partner and know my package will be on it's way soon! My favorite part was definitely keeping an eye out all the time for little HP themed things to send to my pal. I probably won't participate in 4, but just cause we're in the middle of a move right now. Maybe I'll be back for 5!

Laurie said...

Yes, I have received my package (so wonderful) but I not yet sent out my package to my downstream person. I have been in contact with her. I am waiting on something to come to me. Other than that, her box is good to go. Just waiting...
Sure, I would do this swap again, the next round (please try to wait until after the holidays...it's so very hard to add one more obligation late in the year).
The quidditch rounds were good. Maybe we could add other contests too: photography?

Auntly H said...

I've sent (but I don't think it's been received), I've received, I had a great time.
I'm not sure about round 4. Perhaps with it being after the holidays, I'll be past my feelings of overwhelming obligation crafting. If I'm up for a swap, I would definitely consider this one.
My favorite thing was making a few new internet friends.

I've sent mine, I have not recieved my box yet. I think the communcation with other people around the world has been my favorite part. I have also learned more about blogging! I do plan on participating in #4. I am already on the look out for "treats" for my hext owl!

Hi Tia,

I've sent mine but not rec'd yet. It's been wonderful fun meeting so many wonderful and creative people in this swap! I probably will miss round 4 but back for round 5! :-) I second the idea of another contest/interest such as photography or maybe HP recipes...? Will email you in a bit. Still folding piles of vacation laudndry. ~Hettie
