The jacket is very glitzy, which is hard to see in the photo, sorry. Here's Hedwig on the back. Her name is in gold glitter at the top and she's wearing a rhinestone collar. Her wings and feathers have been accented with an icy sparkly glittery outliner. Her eyes have metallic gold accents.
This is the front of the jacket. There is a wand painted as if coming out of the pocket. The Phoenix Fawkes is painted in all his glorious color. He even has a puffy clear little tear running down his cheek. Glitter paint throughout his feathers. He's quite spiffy. The Marauder's Map is on the other side. Below it (hard to see in the photo) it says, "Mischief Managed" in a black/chrome/greenish glitter paint.
The top of the sleeve says, "Sirius was here" with pawprints and rhinestones around. Below it is a visitor's pass to Azkaban. Under that is a wicked Dementor (I wish the photo were better!) and it says "Expecto Patronum!" in glitzy letters.
And finally, the other sleeve has Harry's glasses with a golden snitch, all ready for quidditch.

As promised, here is the first of my Christmas ornaments for this year. Art for your tree! This ornament is 2" x 2" and is painted on a miniature canvas which has been wrapped on tiny wooded bars. The edges have been painted black which gives the same look as many of my gallery wrapped original paintings. This is an actual micro mini original painting for your Christmas tree! It has been signed and finished with a glossy varnish. In the shop now! xo -CS ^..^ **Sold! More on the work table. Stay tuned! xo xo Cat**

But, first things first. The winner of the Sigg CafePress Water Bottle giveaway (chosen by random number generator at random.org) is commentor #22. "Lorie" And, Surprise! I've also chosen a second winner who will receive a 10 pack of note cards from the shop, commentor #6 "Corgi Dog Mama" !! If you would both email me at firstname.lastname@example.org we can get your prizes on the way to you!
I've decided to kick off Christmas in July by giving a signed art print of their choice from my Etsy shop to three winners. Randomly chosen as well, the Facebook Event winners are Michele Taylor, Chris Beam and "Buzzy Bear." I will contact you through Facebook so you can choose your signed art print!
Tomorrow at 3:00 PM EST I will have the first of my little ORIGINAL Christmas in July goodies available for sale in my Etsy shop. Throughout this month I will post some in Etsy and some on Ebay. If you are not familiar with Etsy, it is fun and easy! Simply visit my shop and there are links at the top to show you how to easily register and have fun browsing not only my shop, but all of the wonderful other artists and vendors at this awesome marketplace. It is like visiting an art show and craft fair without ever leaving home!
If you are on Facebook, do stop by and 'fan' The Christmas Corgi page. Please upload your Corgis and other critters to the page. The more the merrier! It is not too late to sign up as 'attending' this Christmas in July Event. I have a sneaking suspicion there will be more prize giveaways this month. It was the Corgis' idea. They love wrapping gifts. Especially the ones that include dog biscuits.
Thanks for stopping by! As the month unfolds, I hope something that pops off of my easel or out of my daydreams will tickle your funny bone and put a song in your heart. xo xo xo ....or "ho ho ho".....!!! -CS ^..^
