I have a whole bunch of last minute assignments to get in under the wire!

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Bean-Honey+ SPEW
Project Name: Flowery office pass

This Office pass is for my mother's classroom who teaches 4th grade at a public school. Since it is a donated item to a public school it qualifies for SPEW and since it has flowers on it it qualifies for this bean!

Class/Challenge/House Pride:August Detention
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Ocean Life Abstract Art Greeting Cards

I love trying new artistic styles and techniques so with these I played a little with color and pattern, I am really proud of how they turned out Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Astronomy
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Snake zen drawing

This drawing fits this class because it is inspired by the contellation Ophiuchus or The Snake Bearer he is a relatively rare constellation that can only be seen some summers. The snake is a symbol of Asclepius who is considered the father of medicine. I thought this constellation was perfect for me this summer considering that it represents powerful healing which is something my family really needs right now.

Wow so many great projects since I was here last! Thank you all so much for all of your SPEW efforts for Erin she has been greatly uplifted by them. I'm sorry if it took me a long time to get back to some of you with our information. Erin was in the hospital again and I didn't have a chance to get online. You all really have wrapped her in so much thoughtfulness and comfort, I will let her thank everyone individually when she posts, but I have been so touched by how amazing you all are.

I have one class to turn in right now but I am hoping to have a few more before the time is up Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Care Package Cookies
Brief Description: One aspect of muggle camping is being sent away to camp for the summer. This is often a mixed bag of emotions for muggle children so their parents send them care packages which are cookies from home thinly disguised as personal care items. So here are some care package chocolate chip cookies.

Attention Pinkleo: These Are ErinAquaheart's Projects she was sick and asked if I could turn them in for her

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch penalty Bumphing
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Colorectal cancer awareness and protection scarf

The awareness ribbon for colorectal cancer is dark blue so Erin made herself a dark blue scarf to protect her from the curse that she is fighting right now.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch- penalty- Quaffle Pocking
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Cuddly crochet scarf

You can't deny it crochet is full of holes so Erin made this cuddly brown scarf for this challenge:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch- Seeker
Project Name: Golden Peanut Butter Cookies

ErinAquaheart was craving peanutbutter cookies so I thought they were perfect for this challenge because you have to bake them up to a golden brown.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch- Beater + SPEW
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Wooden Bathroom Passes

This simple project will provide much relief for a class of fourth graders in a public school. since public schools are considered charities and I donated these they qualify for SPEW.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch - Chaser
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Healing Chakra drawing set

ErinAquaheart and I are always talking about healing not just her disease but her mind body and spirit. These discussions often lead to a variety of philosophies being discussed so based on these discussions I knew that she would like these drawings of the chakras that concern the area of her body that needs to work together to heal itself. The three chakras are the root, the splenic chakra, and the solar plexus chakra. (mentioned in order of the pictures)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch- Keeper
Project Name: Spare yarn coasters

Erin and I sit back in her room while she has to be in bed and we realized very quickly that we needed a pair of coasters for our drinks on her night stand so I whipped these up.

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Quidditch- Broomstick
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Crochet Travel pillow

One of my favorite ways to use transportation is to go on roadtrips, and believe me a pillow is awesome to have on a long road trip So I crocheted this one with a cotton yarn so that it would wick away moisture and not get too hot.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch- Cheering/Spirit
Project Name Go Slytherin Manicure

Now I don't normally paint my own nails, but I figured I needed to do something to represent my house at the quidditch cup so I painted my nails as slythie and I could make them.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch- Penalty- Bumphing
House: Slytherin
Project Name: a Protective sleep cap for ErinAquaheart

Erin is cold ALL THE TIME because of what she has going on so she asked me to make her a soft cuddly sleep sack for her head and here it is modeled by the wonderful mommaaquaheart

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch- Penalty- Quaffle Pocking
House: Slytherin
Project Name: A very holey washcloth

Erin has asked for as many handmade wash cloths as she can get because they feel so much better to her than plain ones so I was able to make her this one. I tried to learn a new motif while I was at it, but on my third try I ended up with a great washcloth but a not so great hexagon Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch penalty Snitchnip
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Tinkerbell Cross Stitch Hoop

I have rarely ever made a cross stitch patterned project like this and I am a free spirit who doesn't like to follow patterns so I took this as an opportunity to get better at accepting patterns as a good thing.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch penalty stooging
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Eyeball Abstract Drawing

One thing that is easy for me is abstract drawing or zendoodling as some call it. I do it all the time so here is one I made for this challenge:

PHEW!!! just got those in under the wire!!

An Owl From St. Mungo's

Hello fellow Hogwarts students and staff. As you may have noticed @ErinAquaheart and myself have been missing for many days. @ErinAquaheart went to the emergency room the Monday night before last for abdominal issues and it turned out to be colorectal cancer. As the week wore on she went through so many tests and a huge surgery that removed a large length of her colon and a tumor that was almost a foot long. After all the tests they found out that the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes and that she is in stage three. As you can imagine this was all very shocking and we are still getting used to this new reality.

This craftalong has been some of the most fun we have ever had so Erin and I are going to try our best to stay a part of it. Erin actually made some projects with the materials available to her at the hospital so she will be posting some of those later today. crafting has been one our greatest coping skills and now I am sure we are going to turn to it more than ever to give us enjoyment and stress relief. We are both just so glad that we have a community like this one to share our crafts with.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch Cup- Portkey
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Coffee Zombie ATC

Brief Description: This little ATC is an unfortunate cup of coffee that has turned into a coffee zombie. I thought he would fit in well as a portkey hidden inside starbucks where the zombified masses come to get their fix.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
Project Name: Sticker Slaps

Brief Description: Stickerslaps are a movement among street artists and urban artists. Basically you scavenge free stickers from places like the post office or blank name tag stickers and you make art on them and them slap them up where ever you feel inclined. Disclaimer: Sticker slaps like other forms of street art may or may not be used in ways that involve having permission to place art wherever you choose. I am sure that as good students of hogwarts we always want to abide by whatever laws are in place where we live. So use caution when casting this creative spell. This its the assignment because I had some blank stickers hanging around that I made disappear and in their place these finished pieces of sticky art appeared.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Study of Ancient Runes
Project Name: Death By Chocolate Mug Cake
Project Page Link (if available): Recipe can be found at this link, I substituted chocolate chunks for the caramels because I had chocolate but no caramels. It turned out awesome! http://www.babble.com/best-recipes/2-minute-chocolate-salted-caramel-mug-cake/

Brief Description: It was my mom's birthday this week and I wanted to make her something special that was better than ye old cupcakes from a box plan. We are usually really tight financially in the summer so I didn't have money to take her out, but this recipe was incredibly cheap to make with materials I already had on hand and it turned out so delicious that I would buy it at a restaurant. It fits the class because I made it for the generous purpose of giving my mom a handmade treat for her birthday.
