You know I've had a productive work day when I have Pygmy Puff fuzz in my eyes, ears, and mouth that I can't seem to get rid of. Stocking up on these little balls of fluff because they sold the fastest in Dublin (and now there are purple ones too). And yes, I did cut out every single one of those tiny pieces by hand. ✂️
This afternoon, I'm working on stitching some tiny niffler pins! Listening to the fantastic @bufferingcast from the beginning while I get these cuties ready for @ithacaismagic and @conjuration_con. ✨
Who are some of your favorite artists, designers, and makers? I unboxed the Girl Power box from @boxofthirds in my new YouTube video and loved all of the products from @anniedornansmith, @three_mamas, @littlewomangoods, @ladynobrow, and @cloudhedd. Watch it through the link in my profile or head to youtube.com/laurenfairweather • Box of Thirds sent me the Girl Power box to review, but I wasn't compensated otherwise. I was mostly just excited to check out a subscription box I'd been admiring for a while! 😊
I decided to throw myself into a project I can control, bought one of these three-tiered carts that everyone on @pinterest is obsessed with, and I organized it. Now, I have a clean crafting table for the first time in months. There are DIY tutorials for the Hogwarts organizer and flower pot pincushions through the link in my bio if you'd like to learn how to make them!

We're back home! I ended up having a few felt pins left over from our trip to Dublin and I'm so happy with the response to them. Hoping to make some more in time for the wizard rock show I'm performing at next weekend in Woonsocket, RI! ✨
#tbt to being in Dublin for #19yearslater with @mattmaggiacomo. They brought platform 9 and 3/4 to us! It was such a magical trip and I have a feeling I'll be using these memories as patronus fuel for a while. • Originally posted to @whytodayisawesome, our fiveawesomegirls instagram project!
Mischief Managed. Hope to see you again sometime, Dublin! ✨(📷 by @mattmaggiacomo)
So lovely to catch up with the brilliant @msevylynch!
I met @hermioneseries! So excited to see their screening later. I'm gonna get all dressed up for the @leakycon ball and go to watch Hermione Granger and the Quarter Life Crisis in Citywest Suite 1 at 8:30pm tonight! You should too if you're here. This show is so good. #hgqlc
Morning journaling session in my traveler's notebook. I've been having such a wonderful time in Dublin! 📓
Just got offstage in Dublin. That was incredible. Thank you so, so much to everyone who came and made that so special for me. 💕
After a long journey to Dublin, I've finally found a comfy chair and a place to eat! 🥑
💼✨I'm so proud of the way this cute little bunch of felt pins turned out! • FAQs: 1. How can I buy these in Dublin this week? - I'll have them at my merch table at the @leakycon concert Thursday night! Cash only. After that, ask me if you see me around! I won't have a marketplace booth this time. 2. Will you sell them online? - Hopefully within the next couple months. I'm starting by bringing them to the in person events at laurenfairweather.com/shows 3 Will you make more designs? - Yes, eventually! Let me know if there are any animals or magical creature pins you'd want to buy.
