I finished the next Christmas present on the list. This one is for the youngest daughter, to go with the small lighted Hogwarts diorama I made for her last year. This was actually a sort of sickening experience. Since I wasn't sure of what I was doing, I didn't plan very well. I added so much detail to make it really Hogsmeade, then ended covering it all up with snow! I just felt sick about it. But that is what she wanted, Hogsmeade in deep snow, like in the movies. If I were to do it again, I would leave out 80% of the detail!
I hope she likes it!
