See what Collinda made for me!

Owen & Kate the Great
My friend hgrhfan35 made this for me to celebrate finishing all the stories about Ginny at Hogwarts as told from Molly's point of view. I love it.





If I've installed it properly, it will show Molly and Arthur and 'Ginny growing up before our eyes', in a new window when you right click it.

I'm still so happy with it because I love Ginny but getting good quality pics of 'Ginny' is harder than pics of 'Hermione'.

Second run of the banner is so much smoother because everything has been downloaded and I could just SQUUUUEEE with happiness.

Just found one tiny mistake.....I think hgrh35 would be really confused if he or she had an LJ account because suddenly people would comment on a banner ????? that he or she made? Uuuuhm....banner....what's a banner?
I'm hgrhfan35! LOL

I love ya Kate :D

Duh! After your spectacular work, I managed to credit it to some other lj user!

I went in and edited your name in correctly. People are raving and I like mine even better than the one you did for Peter.

Wow! That is really awesome! I've never seen anything quite like that before. What a wonderful tribute to a wonderful story. :)

I agree. Collinda is very talented and generous. She'd made one for someone we both admire and I was so thrilled when she asked 'if I'd mind' if she made one for me.

I loved seeing the pics of Bonnie growing up over the years--I particularly enjoy the last one. What a beautiful young lady.

Congratulations on a job well done, too! That was a huge undertaking, and you handled it spectacularly.

Enjoy your moment. :-)

All the credit for the remarkable banner has to go to hgrhfan35 because it is her work. I think the last one looks like Ginny on her wedding day.

Wow, that's quite amazing! Congrats to Collinda on such a splendid job, and to you, Kate, for inspiring a fan of your story to give you such a beautiful gift.

Collinda has been a very supportive reviewer and so her generosity is all the more meaningful to me. The Early Years Universe starts before Harry is born, includes Ginny's Last Year of Home Schooling, and all seven of her years at Hogwarts. The Christmas Memories story ends at Ginny and Harry's wedding and needs revising because of JKR's pairings.

I am still futzing with the last chapter in Ginny's Seventh Year because, as usual, I wrote too much. Drabbles, I'm not.

Fabulous!
What a wonderful piece. Collinda is a true friend to give you such a fantastic gift--and you deserve it. Bonnie is a lovely young woman and I think she captured our Ginny at every stage along the way. I'm looking forward to seeing HBP in a few weeks but a little leery of what they've done to Ginny's character. Fingers crossed.

Kate, shoot me a quick e-mail-I lost lost your address in the transition to the new rig. Don't ask!

Enjoy your gift.
