Nerd Wars - Really???

Okay as if I am not knitting shawls like a crazy person, I have thrown myself into the Nerd Wars for the last quarter of the year, Oct-Nov-Dec 2011.  I am still a little fuzzy on the challenges and everything, but I have submitted my first project and I hope it gets my team some points.  The challenge was to show team spirit by creating a birthday gift that would show your team members your knowledge and love of your nerd-om.  Which for me is Dumbledore's Army and all things Harry Potter.  I sorted into the Ravenclaw house, which is odd.  I am usually a Gryffindor.  It's all good though, I even rocked Slytherin in a swap group once. 

Who is the most creative person in the Potterverse after Mrs. Weasley?  And who is one of the coolest and nerdiest Ravenclaws ever?  Well Luna Lovegood of course.  So I created some earrings for Luna to gift to Hermione for her birthday.  I call them the Elder Wand of Invincibility Earrings.

The next coolest thing was finding pictures in my coloring book of both Hermione and Luna on facing pages wielding wands during a Dumbledore's Army Meeting.  You don't even have to be a nerd to see the sheer perfection in that.
