Practical Magic Party!! (all of my info is from the MOVIE)

OK...I do NOT know how to do this--> (can anyone help?) This post will remain at the top of my blog until Saturday October 2nd (after my drawing) Please scroll down for anything new new

Hello all you Shiny, Happy People!!
today blogs from all over are going to be having a post concerning the great movie (and book...I have it now, can't wait to read it)  PRACTICAL MAGIC!!!
Practical Magic Blog Party

** if you are one of my followers or happened upon my post today, not knowing about this blog hop, click the image above to take you to the main blog, and the list of participants. **


I thought and thought, and thought some more, on how best to post about this movie, in the time constraints I had (I signed up kind of late)  I decided to make my post a bit interactive, fun and give stuff away!

I have three prizes to share with you for someone who loves the movie, and appreciates home made items, but does NOT do any art themselves. for someone who does dabble in art, specifically paper arts. for someone who does dabble in paper art, and is also Wiccan

We will revisit the prizes later on.

The Interactive part is in the form of some games:

a few trivia questions, a small word search, and some multiple choice questions. ALL based upon the Movie PRACTICAL MAGIC!
You will have until this coming 
Friday 10/1 at Midnight EST
To email me your answers, YOU MUST
include whether you "are a fan, but not a crafter",
"a fan, and a crafter"  OR "a fan, crafter and Wiccan".
That way your name will go into the right WITCHES HAT
for drawing. THE email to use FOR THIS is:

Ok, first I KNOW you want to know about the prizes!!

The prize for a fan, but NOT a crafter or a Wiccan is a CHUNKY ATC made by Moi, in the theme of The movie PRACTICAL MAGIC.  first if you do not know, an ATC is an ARTIST TRADING CARD, these are miniature works of art; 2.5" X 3.5"...NOW the chunky part is that it is made out of  a cut 2" X 4" cut to 3.5" and instead of only having art on the front, it is art on all 4 sides and the top. My info will be on the bottom. I can NOT show you a picture of it right now, as it is not made, HA! But I have gathered a few pictures of Chunky ATCs(not made by me) to show you:  The Below Chunky ATCs are made by LGirbino @ ARTHOUSE       
The Prize for a Fan who is also a crafter, will be a selection of 3 collage sheets chosen ESPECIALLY for this blog party, meaning they are magical, Witchy or new age in theme.
There will probably also be some extra goodies.
The prize for the Fan that crafts and is Wiccan is something chosen especially for your Book of Shadows. I'm sure I'll be throwing in some other goodies.


Any questions? please put them in the comments section, and I will answer you. 
Hopefully the pictures I have sprinkled throughout this post will prod your memory of the film, and help you with the answers to the games.

Bye, Bye Jimmy!!

OK here it is THE WORD SEARCH, there are 25 words and phrases from the movie in it. They are vertical, horizontal and diagonal (there is one diagonal that starts at the bottom and goes towards the top) there are NONE that are backwards.

Right click and save to your computer, print it out and work it, if you have scanning abilities, Please scan your sheet with answers, and attach the picture to your email with the other answers.
If you do not have a scanner tell me the 25 words and phrases and an approximate location and direction.

 I USED THE FONT THAT GAVE ME THE CLOSEST STRAIGHT VERTICAL LINE, hope you do not have 2 much trouble. remember it is not only words but sentences or phrases from the Movie also. Good Luck!!

For those who have stayed with me, and plan on playing ...SURPRISE!! 

after all the names have been drawn from the witch hats for the above individual prizes...

I will take ALL the names and put them back in a single witch hat, and draw one name to win  a GRAND PRIZE!!

Just like Sally won her GRAND prize...Her man, Gary Hallet

The Grand Prize is 
a brand new copy of the book PRACTICAL MAGIC
a brand new copy of the book GARDEN SPELLS!!
EDITED TO ADD:(this book is also a wonderful story of love and family, it is NOT a book of spells)

I hope you feel my games are worthy, my prizes great and my bit for this wonderful Practical Magic Party good!!

**Always remember:  
throw spilled salt over your left shoulder
Keep Rosemary by your garden gate
Plant Lavender for luck
Fall in Love, whenever you can

I LOVE the House in this Movie, although now at my age, and with my knees and back issues the stairs, not so much.  However, I simply LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the kitchen especially, including the conservatory/distillery. here are some views, for your enjoyment.

Please come back and visit my blog, and get to know me a bit. I have recently passed 100 followers, and 5,000 visits (but of course that count me also, LOL)  so coming soon I will be doing a large blog candy (geared toward crafters)

There is a little witch in all of us!

Daydreamer :) said...

Thanks for stopping by.
Love looking thu all the photos. I LOVE the Owen's house (especially the kitchen and conservatory). I'll come back when I have more time to play the trivia games.

Penny said...

Very nice post. You sure did a lot work getting ready for it.

Thank you so much for sharing.

Brightest Blessings,
Penny said...

That was a fun post, I enjoyed the game. But just don't have all the answers.

Sparkster said...

This is a positively awesome post. I haven't actually made it to your letter yet on the PM list but you chose to follow my blog so I was coming over to say thank you. I love the book "Garden Spells" too! Someone is going to be really happy. I just love those chunky ATC's! I've never made a chunky one. Too cool. I'm still scanning over your blog, but seeing your post on "Pierre Auguste Cot" made me smile because we have a copy of his "Springtime" hanging up in our bedroom. It's one of those prints on canvas where the person then went back ontop of the print and added strokes to create a more realistic look. I couldn't believe our luck, for I saw it in this little shop several years ago along with many contemporary prints. It's in a gorgeous, gilded frame, full huge size and we paid $39 for it. I know right? The frame was worth more than that. It adds such a romantic feel to our bedroom and I absolutely adore it.

Phew! That's a long comment. Brightest of blessings!

Lynda said...

This post is one of my favorite party posts :) I love your trivia games! I wish I had time to do them but homework is calling my name. I would probably get more than 1 wrong anyway, lol...but I still had a blast reading them all. Very entertaining! :) Also, thanks for stopping by my party and leaving a comment.

Kiki said...
