My favorite gift that I'm giving this year

This is the second Harry Potter-themed post today. Hmm....

This is a project that has very much taken on a life of it's own, and, in a way, I wanted to document it somehow just because it has been fermenting in my imagination for so long. It's a Christmas present for May (who is totally into [a] fantasy books and [b] dolphins). It's four days until Christmas. I'm counting on the fact that May doesn't read my blog...

A magic wand with a dolphin carved into the handle.

I thought a starfish on the end would be a nice touch...

Of course, a fine wand requires a fine box to keep it in. So I made one.

And, of course, I couldn't leave well enough alone. I had to create a wrapper for the box, too.

After all that, I hope she likes it!

I had no idea you were a real life wizard! The wand and the box both look fantastic!

Thanks! Of course, I can't be too much of a wizard... I've only made one wand, and here I am giving it away!
