Potterhead from the East Coast of Canada. I like to make stuff, create art, write, be a mommy and wife, and be a big dork about Harry Potter. I read the Philosopher’s Stone when I was 8 (it was a day like any other, in 1997), and I fell in love with it like millions of others. I’ve since read the books more times than I care to keep track of, watched the movies maybe not so many times (but a lot). Each time you read them, there’s some other little thing you notice, some connection. It’s such a well imagined world, it’s hard not to become absorbed in it!
I mean, I’m clearly not ashamed to admit how obsessed I am. Look at what I’ve gone and done..!…and this edited Slytherin picture, I mean, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
So, this is a place where I can empty my head of all Potter-related thoughts. The beautiful thing about starting this now, is that the WW Book Club by Pottermore is in session and there are SO MANY great discussions happening, I want to take all the weekly questions and delve just a bit deeper. It’s like a book report that goes on forever! OK, although I made an account specifically for book club, I don’t always have time to participate live on twitter (which is noon for me, an unpredictable time with two tiny humans). This is a good way to make sure I cover everything (eventually)!
One Important Note: If you haven’t read the books, or if you’re reading them currently and are not past the first two, please be warned that this blog is FULL OF SPOILERS. I won’t put spoilers on twitter, but on here I am not holding back. 😀
There will be more than just Book Club stuff on here though. Besides my random opinions, I want to share my slowly growing Harry Potter collection! A page for that will be coming soon.

My old username was GlowStar1976. I made a lot of potions. It was fun while it lasted, the old Pottermore, but I very much enjoy the new format.
Anyway I hope that, if you enjoy Harry Potter, you’ll enjoy this blog. I’d love to hear your thoughts!!!
