Splash returned home earlier in the week, but I have only just had a chance to get photos uploaded. It looks like a fantastic time was had in Tampa - I have visited Tampa twice in the past and I am now really feeling a need to get back.

Everything altogether


Splash and the journal


Couple of my favourite pages from the journal



The front and back of the journal had pockets full of goodies



And there were some lovely souvenirs in the box



And last, but no means least, Splash came home with one of phoenixfiredesigns gorgeous necklaces - I love it so much.


Thank you phoenix for a great swap and thank you Wildfyre for organising us all

I have started a journal using the accordion hinge, but I am planning to bind it into a hard cover, rather than use the ribbon method. I am going to store that idea for next time though Smiley

Closed...


Open...


I went with the accordion hinge purely because I wanted space to add more "stuff" and wanted it to still close.

Loving all the hats jellybean and that scarf is fantastic.

The thundercake card is brilliant noodle-bug.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Zentangle page
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: Zentangle-ing involves repeated geometric patterns and this sheet has a large number of different zentangle patterns. The sheet of art paper I started with is around 9" by 13" and whilst I didn't time this, I reckon it took me about 9 or 10 hours in all. I couldn't do more than about an hour at a time, because my hand started to cramp! Smiley

The prompt stated that the word "zentangle" had to be included, so I marked that out first, then added the specific shapes - the flower and leaves, the diamonds, etc. Lastly I started to fill in the gaps with different patterns. I almost filled the letters in red but I am glad I didn't.

What is not obvious from the photo is the gemstones - they are used, sparingly, within some patterns and the centre of the flower is completely filled in with them.

Project Picture:



Class/Challenge/House Pride: SOAR
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Zentangle Pocket Letter
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: I have always felt drawn to doodling and even before I knew about zentangle-ing, my doodles were always repetitive, rather than specific images. Once I discovered it had a name, and that other people also doodle in the same way, I felt like I had come home.

Project Picture:

The sheet of zentangle was cut up into 9 ATC sized cards, one letter per card.


I then attached these to yellow cards and added a step-by-step instruction to a zentangle pattern on each card.


This close up shows the use of gemstones.

Couple of last minute pics of our champagne afternoon tea at the weekend and Clara is all ready to start her journey home today. Going to be strange not having a little visitor to keep me company!  Undecided

Afternoon Tea at the Winchester Royal Hotel


We had a lovely table overlooking the gardens

Wow, I don't check in for a couple of days and the board explodes. Our pinterest board will be back up to date ASAP. So many fantastic projects.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Jamaica Floo and Professor Trelawny's birthday special
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Chakra Hoopla
Project Page Link (if available): n/a

Brief Description: Embroidery is something I really know how to do - I started learning how when I was 6 years old - and is something that I find very relaxing. This hoopla was for a chakra themed swap and I kept seeing the tree of life pendants made with chakra stones. Whilst phoenixfiredesigns makes the most amazing pendants, working with wire does not come easily to me, so I transferred the idea to a hoopla. It is safely with its new owner and luckily she loves it, because it was hard to let this one go! The background was created with watered down acrylics.

Loving all the tie dye Abbeeroad, it is a long time since I have done any tie dye! I keep meaning to have a go at Shibori - some of the patterns are so lovely.

And that cat bookmark is so cute - going to pin that as an idea of something to do with my Brownies.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: February Detention
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Valentine heart
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: This embroidered heart was for my partner in the Mixed Media Valentine swap.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: February Headmistress Challenge
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Valentine's ATCs
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: I had an allegiance to my swap partner in the Mixed Media Valentine swap (so love was also involved Cheesy) and as part of the box, I created these three ATCs.
Project Picture:



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Floo powder - San Francisco
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Shaving foam marbling
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: I tried this with food colouring first, but not sure whether it was the foam I had or the food colouring, but the minute I added the food colouring, the foam started to break down and became gritty! So I moved onto watered down acrylic paint - much better results.
Project Picture:

First attempt - not brilliant results!  Undecided


Second attempt - much happier with these results - some pages still in full and some ATC and inchie backgrounds cut ready for use.

Loving the hats Mistress Jennie and the family tree Jenleahlynn - sounds like a fantastic addition to a library. Looks like the Newt is coming along nicely EdelC.

Please note, there is one picture for both submissions, as they work as a pair. Each coaster took me just over an hour, so I believe I am ok to submit them as two separate submissions.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: House Pride
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Matching coasters
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: I needed a new coaster for my bedside table and as I normally have a glass of water and a cup of tea, I decided I needed a matching pair. I had this coaster pattern saved, so decided to make them in Hufflepuff colours, but alternating the colour order.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Floo Powder - Corner Shop
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Matching coasters
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: These coasters are going to make my bedroom look nicer, meaning I am going to enjoy spending time there more.

I had tea and coffee on my theme list and CuriousCoffee went with a combo, with the most amazing twist - mug shots! Isn't it fantastic?

Full shot


And the back, with some amazing goodies


And my favourite pocket, because Latte is always my drink of choice!

Clara, hubby and I had a lovely day out in Dorchester yesterday. We went to see the Terracotta Warrior museum, but ending up going round 5 different museums - the Terracotta Warrior museum, the Tutankhamun exhibition, the mummy museum, the teddy bear museum and the dinosaur museum! On the way home we stopped for a lovely pub dinner.

Photos were forbidden in the first three, but we took lots with the teddy bears and dinosaurs.
