A new Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean Mini-Challenge has been posted!  



What's this week's bean!?!?  Take the Portkey to the Deputy Headmistresses Office to find out!


Please note you are welcome to do any, all or none of these challenges as they come up throughout the semester.  They are not intended to cause stress, but are instead intended to get your crafty Muses singing.  Neither of the Headmistresses will complete ALL the classes and challenges posted this semester.  So relax, and craft what you love.  Also, please be aware that posts for the previous bean will be accepted until midnight tonight.

Challenge: Bertie Bott's - Blue Raspberry
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Color Changing Mood Earrings

Brief Description: What would you call an unexpected color?  How about colors that change throughout the day?  These earrings were made with color changing "mood" beads.  Much like the mood rings of the 70's, but far prettier.  The beads can change in color from burgundy, amber, chartruse, emerald, blue, and purple, depending on body heat and the ambient temperature of the room.

Challenge: Quidditch - Chaser
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Blue Sun Earrings

Brief Description: This project was a fun and quick one.  I painted the brass stampings with Vintaj patina paints, and sanded them to reveal the smiling sun face, then sealed them with a clear sealer, and attached them to the ear wires along with Swarovski crystals.

Challenge: Quidditch - Flacking
House: Gryffindor
Project Name & Link:  Cinderella Charm Bracelet

Brief Description: A project worn on a portion of the anatomy, huh?  I wonder what Mistress Jennie will make?  Maybe a charm bracelet....  This one based on a classic fairy tale, Cinderella.  More info under the link...  Wink

3  Cinderella Charm Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Mistress Jennie on: July 24, 2014 06:10:34 PM
Another new bracelet tonight.  I have always been in love with fairy tales, and this bracelet was inspired by by one of the most beloved, Cinderella.  The charms include a mouse, pumpkin coach, horse, story book, magic wand, clock, fairy godmother, pumpkin, glass slipper, castle, princess, crowns, palace guard, ball gown, entwined hearts, & a wedding ring.  Thea beads are a mix of light sapphire blue, sparkling crystal clear, and velvet black.

4  Gnome Charm Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Mistress Jennie on: July 24, 2014 05:58:10 PM
Does anyone else miss the World of David the Gnome?  I do.  David, his wife Lisa, and his friend Swift the fox.  While thinking about that beloved childhood favorite last week, I designed this bracelet.  It's filled with gnomes, mushroom houses, oak leaves, acorns, squirrel, fox, owl, doe, stag, rabbit and a tree.  The beads are a mix of clear, dark teal and bright red, and include some stunning lampwork glass mushrooms.

Class: Apparition
House: Gryffindor
Project Name & Link: Librarian Charm Bracelet

Brief Description: While studying the human body, I noticed that humans around the world choose to decorate their bodies.  Particularly with jewelry worn on the ears, neck, ankles, and in this instance, wrists.  
Project Picture:



Class: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Gryffindor
Project Name & Link: Crafty Style Silk Sari Dreamcatcher

Brief Description: The endangered magical creature I chose to study this term is the Firecrab.  It is native to the island of Fiji, has six legs, and a heavily jeweled shell.  It is able to defend itself by shooting flames from its rear end when it is attacked.  In honor of this amazing creature, I crafted a dreamcatcher for our very own FiberAlchemist.  The yarn used in wrapping the hoop and the tassels is made from jewel toned silk saris that have been recycled.  While many jewel tones appear in the yarn, it is predominately fiery reds and oranges.

Challenge: Detention - June
House: Gryffindor
Project Name & Link: Dreamcatcher Bookmark

Brief Description: One of my favorite things to do at the beach is lay around and read.  (Preferably with a large iced tea and an oversized umbrella.)  I made this dreamcatcher bookmark for FiberAlchemist to hopefully enjoy on a beach adventure this summer.  Cheesy

Challenge: Detention - July
House: Gryffindor
Project Name & Link: Mighty Monarch Butterfly Bracelet

Brief Description: This poor charm bracelet has been in the works for months!  I came up with the idea in January.  Purchased the charms throughout February and March.  It sat around on hold for all of April & May.  I made the bead pins in June.  FINALLY I got around to putting them all together!
Project Picture:



Class: Divination
House: Gryffindor
Project Name & Link: Doctor Who Dreamcatcher

Brief Description:  The Ojibwe people believe that the Spider Woman, known as Asibikaashi took care of the children and the people on the land. Eventually, when the Ojibwe Nation spread to the corners of North America and it became difficult for Asibikaashi to reach all the children. So mothers and grandmothers would weave magical webs for the children, using willow hoops and sinew. The dreamcatchers would filter out all bad dreams and only allow good thoughts to enter our mind. Once the sun rises, all bad dreams just disappear.  I created this dreamcatcher for FiberAlchemist as a way to ward off evil from her dreams.

Quick run-by posting from my mother-in-law's living room...

Challenge: July Quidditch Challenge - Set Your Portkey
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Gnome Charm Bracelet
Project Page Link: coming soon....
Brief Description: While there are several witches and wizards in our town, none of them are in walking distance to our new home.  Therefore I decided to place my portkey in a central location.  Down the pub!  I placed my new Gnome Charm Bracelet (more pictures coming tomorrow night) in McReary's Irish Pub, beside the ketchup at our favorite table.  In order to keep Muggles away, I placed Muggle invisibility spells on the bracelet and Muggle repelling charms on the table itself.  Now it looks like a rickety old table that no one wants to sit at.  Wink. Now when we head to the world cup, everyone can have a pint while they wait to catch a ride!

Quick run-by posting!

Challenge: Bertie Bott's - Dog Food
Project Name: Teacup Bird Feeder
Brief Description: The inspiration came from this tutorial on My So Called Crafty Life: DIY Teacup Bird Feeder.  I picked up the teacup and saucer from Goodwill for $1, and all the other supplies came out of my stash, including the chain, oversized clasp, decorative clasps that I used in place of bails, charms and beads.  (More details on the project post!)

10  Teacup Birdfeeder in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by Mistress Jennie on: July 11, 2014 08:11:19 AM
One of the hanging Morrocan style lanterns on my porch recently took a nasty tumble.  The result was a lot of shattered glass, and an empty hook just begging to be filled.  As our apartment overlooks a wooded area, there are also a lot of birds who frequent our porch and I had been meaning to get them a bird feeder.  But then I asked myself, why go buy one, when I can make one?



The inspiration came from this tutorial on My So Called Crafty Life: DIY Teacup Bird Feeder.  I picked up the teacup and saucer from Goodwill for $1, and all the other supplies came out of my stash, including the chain, oversized clasp, decorative clasps that I used in place of bails, charms and beads. 



The cup itself was cute, and had a raised leaf pattern on it, but it couldn't be seen well as it was unpainted, so I highlighted the leaves with enamel ceramics paint, and fired it in the oven.  A little E6000, some chain, and voila!  New bird feeder for my feathered friends.
