Trailers are popping up left, right, and center for part one of Deathly Hallows now. Every time I see one of them it’s all I can do to sit down, I’m so excited. Not only for the movie, but for the crafting possibilities! Now The Leaky Cauldron has posted a news article announcing that the official trailer will be released online on September 22nd, at 9:00PM EST!!
We all do it. The trailer is released, and we’re staring at everything, watching for something that we can make. Something that will pull us ever deeper into the magic that is this wonderful world. If you’re like me you’ll look, you’ll drool, you’ll plan on finding time to work out a pattern to make the craft your heart desires the most, and then? Nothing. You’ll think about it. You’ll want it. You’ll want to make it. Yet, every time, something stops you. Something tickles at the edge of your mind taunting you with the idea that someone else will come out with the pattern before you can figure it out...and that they’ll probably do a better job of it, too!
My question...no, my challenge...to you is this. What are you waiting for? Don’t let self-doubt, nerves, anxiety, or anything else stop you. So what if someone else comes out with a pattern? That shouldn’t stop any of us from developing our own. Watch the trailer, then comment here if you see a craft that you are dying to recreated. Then stick to your guns and do just that! Once it’s done, send us a picture of it at email@example.com, and I’ll add it to our Harry Potter Crafts gallery lickity split, then e-mail you a link to the image so that you can share it with everyone you know. Or, even better than that, write up a tutorial for your craft and send it in. We’ll code it, post it on Leaky Lounge and The Leaky Cauldron’s Harry Potter Crafts section, send you links to your tutorials, AND give you 50 MyLeaky points for sending it in! Now that, my crafting fiends, is a win-win situation in my book.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you all, and seeing the wonderful things that come out of your imaginations!
