                Hp5freak—

               I took my letter home.  It’s a long way to Oz and I’d like to be able to see it regularly.  Great party last night, by the way.  I wasn’t aware that you were able to…er…well, it was great.  How’s Josée doing with her concussion, followed by the party?  Is she resting well?

    *is dreaming happy dreams*
    *hears insistent tapping at window*

    *looks at clock, sits up, banging head on upper bunk*

    Whoops, I overslept!!!

    *rubs head, and hears tapping again*

    *goes to window, lets in owl*

    Uh-oh…

    *shoos owl out, and looks at the scarlet envelope that’s smoking at the edges*

    BOOM

    PRINCESS!!!

    Get your crafty butt into the TLC CW office post haste. All heck’s breaking loose!

    Quietish

    *dresses very quickly and apparates away*



    *pops into Crafty Witch office*

    *is creeped out that the office is apparently empty*

    *notes the Floo is spotted in Floo powder, goo, and broken twigs*

    *goes to desk to try to find out what’s going on*

    *finds Dragonsinger under the desk*

    “Hey! You’re back! How was vacation? Did’ja bring me any-- What’s wrong, Minion?”

    “Don’t tell ‘em I’m here.”

    “What’s going on?”

    “Well, see, you know I took the company broom out for my holidays? Well, er…there was an accident with a Muggle on the way to see As_Weasley_As_I_Wanna_Be. So, I was hoping I could get it fixed before Josée_Madalia noticed, but then everything just kinda went nuts…”

    *an owl swoops in and drops note on the desk*

    Princess—

    If you see Dragonsinger, can you ask her where I put the jam after breakfast the other day? I can’t find any of my 12 jars here. I’ve asked my boys, but there seems to be plenty of peanut butter left, so I don’t think it was them…

    As_Weasley_As_I_Wanna_Be

    *looks at burned jam on Floo again*

    *looks down at Dragonsinger*

    “You care to explain that, Minion?”

    *Dragonsinger cringes*

    “Okay, so, I thought I could fix the company broom with a few well-places twigs, some jam and a spell or three…but that’s not quite how it worked…I mean, it may have worked, but it was still drying when Josée_Madalia came in. And she made mention that she needed it for something…”

    “Oh, dear…”

    *is interrupted by a fast flying owl whoooo drops another note on the desk*

    Amber—

    Um…why do I have a concussed Josée in Oz, and a living room covered in twigs and jam? Has something gone wrong in the Crafty Office?

    --Hardhatcat

    *casts Impervius charm to avoid stickiness, sticks head in Floo, and has brief conversation with Cat to check on Josée*

    *pulls head back out of Floo*

    *taps foot at Dragonsinger* “Well?”

    “Er…well, Josée_Madalia grabbed the broom, and it sorta bucked away from her…and she’s such a tiny thing and she was kinda stuck to it because of the jam, you see…it sorta knocked some Floo powder over and I don’t know what she was yelling, but it seems the Floo network understood something…and well, now she’s at Hardhatcat’s place…in Australia.”

    “Oh…my…” *deep breath* “Okay, well, here’s what we need to do. I need to get my update in order and up. YOU need to clear up this mess. Then we are going to have to have the Floo checked for damage by Magical Maintenance. While they are doing that, I will go down to the Portkey office and see what I can do about arranging international transportation and interconnecting Portkeys to get us to Australia to get Josée, to Canada to drop her off, and get us back to the States before I have to be at Wrock concert tonight.”

    *pulls Dragonsinger out from under desk and starts dragging her from the office*

    “By the way…have you seen my tiara?”

    *writes notes to fellow Crafty Witches*

    Hey Quietish!

    The Craft-Along looks great and I’ve signed up. I’m getting my supplies tomorrow. This is going to be AWESOME!!!!

    --Princess hp5freak

    *gets another sheet of parchment*

    Dragonsinger—

    Tiara is safely put away. I’ll have an owl out to you next week. And no, I’m not making another bet with you…I know better. Apparently, someone forgot to remind Josée about making bets with you.

    --Her Royal Highness, Princess hp5freak

    *gets sturdier parchment for long-distance owl*

    ‘Lo, Cat—

    Awesome job on sneaking off from work to chase DanRad. How about letting ALL the CW go next time? I’m sorry the others stuck you to the wall for a while. It was for your own good, you know…

    --Freak

    *re-tips quill for next notes*

    As_Weasley_As_I_Wanna_Be—

    I feel your pain this week. Princesses and certained tailed creatures do NOT mix…Cinderella notwitchstanding. Rest up and we will celebrate catching up later. Gotta have you in ready party mode. And I’ve taken away your grindstone.

    --hp5freak

    *gets red parchment for final note*

    Josée_Madalia (Josees_house)--

    WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? DID YOU NOT LEARN FROM MY BET WITH DRAGONSINGER LAST YEAR? SILLY THING TO DO, WOMAN!!! SHE ONLY BETS ON SURE THINGS. HOW DO YOU THINK I ENDED UP LOSING LAST YEAR???? SHE GOT ME ON 300 PROJECTS!!!

    *add regular parchment*

    She’s a sly one, that Dragonsinger. Very crafty….we must watch out for her. Perhaps we should bet her on something… *ponders briefly* I will now laugh at you because I will be awaiting a Canadian owl because I see that I’m going to benefit from you having lost the bet.

    --hp5freak

    *tracks down 5 owls for delivery*

    *goes back to proper updating*

    I don't know...they've got brooms... )

    Weekly Update for 04/24/08

    *apparates into Leaky’s Crafty Witch workroom*

    *sees note pinned to corkboard*

    from hardhatcat )

    I’m not going to be around this week because the Ministry of Magic is sending me to some conference on the other side of Australia.  I’ll see you and get updated when I get back.

    Much love and toodles,

    Hardhat_Cat”

    *sees second note pinned to corkboard*

    from dragonsinger954 )

    Cat said she was going to be gone for WORK reasons?  Yeah, right.  Check out this news article

    *wanders to desk*

    *finds note spellotaped to computer*

    from quietish )

    Reminder for the Craft-Along!  Thanks!

    --Q

    PS:  Have you seen Trevor?  I think Filch got a hold of him last week…Nev’s worried…

    </div>

    *boots computer*

    *finds email from Fearless Leader*

    from jennbrad52 )

    I’ll be out of commission this week.  I have an ear infection.  Everything sounds like a toad in my ears.  Oh, and Filch tried to give me a detention!  Can you believe that?  ME, a Crafty Witch.  …incidentally, I don’t think he’s a Squib after all…because I sorta went deaf after I laughed at a joke about Mrs Norris, and that’s when the ear problems started up.  I’m going to see Madam Pomfrey later today…

    --As_Weasley_As_I_Wanna Be

    </div>

    *finds email from other Fearless Leader*

    from josee_madalia )

    I’ve been out a bit requesting permissions to post tutorials and photos for Leaky.  You wouldn’t believe the dragon I had to fight at Gringotts last week to get a pattern out of one of the deeper level vaults.   There I was!  Swishing and flicking and waving and jabbing and ….well, in the end, I may have lost an eyebrow when I disapperated, but I got the pattern, and someone else has to deal with a disgruntled dragon on that side of the security vaults.  Reminders for Craft-Along, new links, and our email for questions, tutorials and everything else.

    Going back into the fray, Josée_Madalia

     

    </div>

    Busy little Crafty Witches we are!!! )

    Freak—

      Don’t forget!  You’re supposed to mention all the places the Crafty Witches can be found.  We can’t take over the world if we don’t have minions….er… I mean, those interested should be able to find us online everywhere.

    Oh, and Princess?  If I find your tiara out again, I’m going to stick it where you …er…just put it away already.

    --Dragonsinger

     

    A—

      Make sure to mention questions/queries/corrections need to be emailed to crafts@the-leaky-cauldron.org … Okay?

    --Josee_Madalia

     

    Hey Freak—

      Now that we are caught up on the backlog, I think we are ready for some new tutorials.  Maybe you should mention it in your updates for people to submit their instructions using the form and we could get some more new stuff up.   Especially if there are people who have not submitted before that maybe need some encouragement.  If we want to take over the world…you know.  Minions, think of the MINIONS….

    And by the way, don’t let Cat down from the wall.  Her work keeps trying to send her to a retreat or something that would keep her away from us.  She is stuck to the wall for her sanity.

    --As_Weasley_As_I_Wanna_Be

    *looks over at wall to see Hardhat_Cat stuck to the wall in a manner reminiscent to her own times of being stuck to the wall*

    *waves*  Hullo, Cat!  How’s it going?

    Good morning, Freak—

      Could you please mention the upcoming Craft-Along?  May 1 is very soon (just two weeks from today, in fact).  Tell ‘em to keep it tuned to Leaky for word on the details.  Thanks!

    --Quietish

     

    Okay, well then…
