Year-Round Gift Wrap

1:58 am - John

As some of you may have already noticed, gift wrap has been added to Madam Puddifoot's in Hogsmeade. This store will always stock gift wrap so you can now give gifts to your friends year-round. Be on the look out, as new types of gift wrap will be added periodically now. During the holidays, Fred's Holiday Store will still have all of your specialty gift wrap.

As a reminder, the Hogsmeade stores are only open on Saturdays and Sundays, so plan accordingly!

Weekly Plum Reminder

3:05 am - John

Many of you have said typically when Monday rolls around, you realize you've forgotten to buy any plums for the week. It is hard at times to remember the one day of the week that one can get plums. To help with this, when you visit the dirigible plums, a small window will pop up asking if you'd like to be reminded to purchase them every Sunday via event. After you select yes or no, you can always change the setting in the plum settings page in the section.

For this week, consider this post your weekly reminder to head on over to the dirigible plums and click the sign on the tree!

Arts & Graphics Forum Update - May

12:55 pm - deidra

Birds of a feather flock together, or so the old saying goes. Artists, head on over and join your fellow creative brains in the Arts & Graphics forum for another month of excitement.

This month, we are celebrating factions, guilds, clubs, societies, and gaggles of like-minded folk. For your graphics challenge, you will be designing a banner to support your chosen group of people. Over in the writing challenge, you are imagining your very own guild/faction/group (or more than one). And, in case you want to try your hand at graphics, but aren't sure what program to use, the tutorial this month is a list of free and legal programs you can download to get started on your graphic-making journey. Before you go, don't forget to check out and congratulate our artist of month!

Of course, what would the A&G Forum be without our fantastic prizes:
1st Place: 10,000 Galleons + 3,000 House Points
2nd Place: 5,000 Galleons + 2,000 House Points
3rd Place: 2,000 Galleons + 1,000 House Points
