Challenge: Care of magical creatures
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Fairy House
Brief Description: I'll be honest, the idea was not mine, but together my and I crafted this fairy house - if assignments must be completed solely by me, no worries I can do another project, but thought you might enjoy our fairy house anyways.

We went for a walk together and collected all sorts of natural items - rocks, sticks, bark, stones, etc.  Then we found a flower pot under the deck that me Dad said we could have.  She was shocked when her Grandpa (my Dad) told her she could dig some dirt out of his garden to fill the pot, then we built a home for visiting fairies, gave them a patio, a walkway, a future garden, and a "ladder" for injured fairies who may not be able to fly to the house.  -we won't have greenery for a few weeks yet, but I plan to add some glitter this week, not fairy home is complete without a bit of fairy dust right:)


I have thoroughly enjoyed having time this spring break, and the fact that this semesters prompts seem to fit so many of my "must be done by gurgle gurgle drool 7th" projects:)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
SPEW:
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Mom's Silver Shoes
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: We have our dresses and clutch purses, so it was only fitting we needed some shoes.  I went to town on some of our old shoes with silver paint, glitter glue, shellac, and trim.  Wasn't sure what the final outcome would be, but I'm quite happy.  It took 4 coats of silver paint and 4 coats of glitter glue, to cover the black and get them nice and sparkly - each layer required a couple hours to dry before the next layer could be added.  Then I added trim around the top and finally shellacked them to ensure the glitter didn't flake off everywhere.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Charms
SPEW:
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: IRD savings box
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Now this is done to be permanent - for 3 years.  I recently found out that International Recognition Days will be in a place I really want to go to in 2018, and that means I need to start saving money.  Knowing myself, I always dip into savings when I'm short on funds, so this box has a permanent sticking charm, that I will have 3 years in which to learn the unsticking charm!  I first took all the hinges and fasteners off, then I wrote a letter to myself in 2018 and added a few "you did it" items. I glued the lid on with a regular glue stick.  Then I glued ribbon around the box to cover the seam of the glued down lid.  Then I Refastened the hinges and clasps.  When that was all dry I decorated the box using sharpie pens to write inspirational words and images.  This puppy has a serious case of permanent sticking charm on it!


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress challenge - March
SPEW:
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Elephant on an egg
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I got this little elephant eraser somewhere, but he was WAY too cute to actually use.  While my niece and I were playing with him, we tried to balance him on a plastic egg - that was a fail, poor elephant wiped out and hit the floor, but after she left, I persevered, I flatted the side of an egg so it would sit on it's side.  Then with the elephant on it, it was cute, but rather bland, so I got out the paint and sharpies.  I painted the egg with a technique to look like grass, drew on the vines, painted a watering hole on top, but the egg still looked empty, so I added one of my favourite quotes that also represents balance "live, eat; laugh".

Class: Astronomy
SPEW:
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Garment Bag
Brief Description: I've made my TOPS friends their costumes, and I'm making my formal gown, so instead of folding them and risking wrinkles and damage as we travel (it's only a 5 hour drive, but the dresses are cotton or satin, and one has glitter which I'd rather not have over all my other clothes), I've created this garment bag that slides over 5 clothes hangers and hides all of the dresses so nobody will see them as we check in to our rooms.



Class: Flying
SPEW:
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Garment Bag
Brief Description: I needed a fancier dress than usual for our TOPS recognition days next month, as we're hosting Saturday evening when everybody glams up, so I've made this dress with some glitter overlay, a rhinestone belt, and a satin skirt.  I feel great wearing it, and can't wait to show off:)




Class: Muggle studies
SPEW:
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: TOPS fascinators/brooches
Brief Description: The theme of the recognition days is "reasons to believe", and the colour scheme is blue, purple, and silver, so I made these fascinators - no set plan, just listened to "believe" (the theme song from the 2010 Olympics, which is a very inspirational song).  These can be worn in the hair or on their dresses, each individual can decide for themselves.




Class: Bertie Botts Bean - Cherry
SPEW:
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Bunny rabbit rag blanket
Brief Description: My nieces have a little swingset with a  play house and always want to have picnics out there, but constantly take the pillow cases, so with the warm weather coming, I finally got around to making this little blanket which will fit perfectly and keep them comfy during all of their upcoming picnics.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Defense against the dark arts
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Eucalyptus show tubs
Brief Description: I got sick and tired of the one time use "shower bumbs" that lost their scent, and made the shower floor slippery, so I did some experimenting and came up with this method of making it in plastic containers with screw top lids.  When you're sick, use it in the shower.  Immediately recap it when your shower is done and it will retain the strong scent which is what I enjoy most out of them:)
Recipe : 1 part baking soda, 1 part water, mix and add enough eucalyptus to make you happy, pour into containers - fill about 1/2 - 3/4 full and put lid one.


Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Silver clutchpurse
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: My mom and I travel together for our annual Provincial Recognition Days for TOPS, and the theme this year is "reasons to believe" and the colour scheme is blue, purple, and silver, in addition to our dresses, we wanted clutch purses, the ones we could find where like $20, so since I had this vinyl in my stash, I took some time and made some clutch purses, so this one is my Mom's - isn't it great when your best friend is also your mom:)



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Study of ancient ruins.
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Owl cable holder
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Just another bone for when I travel, I need something to coral all my cables and plugs, so I made myself a cable and plug holder out of some owl fabric:)  I know feel safe knowing my phone can be charged anywhere while we travel, I won't lose anything, and we need not worry about becoming lost as my Mom and I use our cell phones for navigating, as I'm the co-pilot it's my duty to get us from point A to point B without getting lost, so this is a big deal..

Project Name: Hair accessory and jewelery holder

Project Name: Cell phone accessory holder
Project Description:  A carry case for my Mom to hold all of her cell phone accessories when we travel, to help coral everything when we're in the hotel room. The flowery bird like fabric was chosen from stash by my cat, guess he's ready to welcome the warm spring weather we've been having.

SPEW: NA
Project Name: Reversible housecoat
Project Description: I made a frozen themed housecoat as a project for the store for a friends niece, and offered to do one for the little brother as well, so this is Ninja turtles on the main side, and it reverses to a solid red (forgot to take a pic of that side, sorry)

I would like to shelf my previous owl, and focus on this (I have started, but there's at least 3 -4 more weeks of work, and I need motivation to finish is, so hoping it is allowed.

OWL Subject & Option(if available): Study of ancient runes
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Reasons to believe banner and dresses
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pile of flesh/techniques used, materials using, plan of action, expected timeline, etc.)
The banner needs to have about 20 words embroidered on to it, and then it will get sewn to the dress.  In total, I have 4 dresses to make, but everyone has embroidered their own banner.

Link:
Project Description: I wanted to test the pile of flesh I am using for my fancy dress, so instead of using ugly fabrics, I used some stash and made this pretty little one - I think my Mom might wear it for the event, she said it was a pretty and cheerful dress that would be lovely for the even.
