"In the corridor outside, one will find a painting of a bowl of fruit; one such fruit is a pear. If one tickles the pear, it will squirm, laugh, and then transform into a green door-knob. Hence revealing the doorway, one can open the door and enter."

Challenge: Bertie Bott's - Black Pepper
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name & Page Link: Love Forevermore Charm Bracelet

Brief Description: Inspired by Valentine's Day earlier this month, and my favorite movie, The Princess Bride, I created a Love Forevermore themed charm bracelet.  It is filled with Tibetan silver and pewter charms including many hearts, crowned hearts, bows & arrows, locks, keys, and a Forevermore token, surrounded by a mix of glass, fire-polished Czech glass, crystal and stone beads in shades of wine, rose, grey and black.

Class: SoAR
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Mulling Spices
Project Recipe Link: Homemade Mulling Spice Mix Recipe

Brief Description: Much of the US has been hit with crippling cold weather.  While we in TN didn't receive the snow that some of the rest of North America has, we did have a severe ice storm that kept people iced in for 5 days, and record low temperatures for this area.  Schools were closed for the entire week, and there were many terrible car accidents due to people driving on black ice. DH & I were fortunate in that I already work from home, and his job allows him to do so too, and since there were already plenty of groceries in the house, we just stayed snuggled indoors that whole time, with brief trips outside to "walk" the dog.  But since it was so cold, I decided to make something to keep us warm.  A batch of mulling spices!  This made a huge batch, so we mulled some cider and some wine, and I sent some home with a sick friend on Thursday.  And I still have a ton left!

~*Detention in the Dungeons*~


This semester there will be three Detention Challenges, one for each month.  You are welcome to do any, all, or none of these challenges.  (Remember, they are just here to help get your crafty juices flowing!)  All Detention projects are worth 15 House Points and may be turned in anytime during the semester, regardless of what the newest Challenge is, up until the semester ends on February 28th.  (For example, you may turn in December or January challenges in February.)

March Challenge:
Professor McGonagall has caught you out of bed after hours!  As punishment she is having you write I am a wizard, not a ghost.  I will not haunt the halls. 1,000 times.  For this challenge you must complete a Work In Progress.


April Challenge:
It wasn't you (of course!) but you were standing next to a group of 4th Years when they were caught throwing screwed up bits of paper at the back of Professor Quirrell's head, and now your stuck in detention with them!  And, boy, does that turban reek of garlic! For this challenge you must make something that smells sweet to over power it.

29  ~*Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans*~ in Craftalongs by Mistress Jennie on: February 21, 2015 12:45:53 PM
Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans
A risk with every mouthful!

"You want to be careful with these. When they say every flavor, they mean every flavor - you know you get all the ordinary ones like chocolate and peppermint and marmalade, but then you can get spinach and liver and tripe. George reckons he had a bogey-flavored one once." - Ron Weasley

Its no secret that Hogwarts students love sweets.  And teachers, Headmasters & Headmistresses have been known to enjoy their share of treats too.  Therefore, your brilliant Headmistresses have devised an epic new *series* of Mini-Challenges for you.  


Every two weeks we will pull a new bean out of the bag.  Each bean will be the inspiration for a mini-challenge.  Students may complete and post a craft based on that theme to earn 15 House Points, and a Badge for that challenge.  Once a new challenge is posted, you have until 11:59 Central time THE SAME DAY to finish posting the "old" bean.  Items posted after that can earn Badges, but no House Points  As with all things in the HPC, you are welcome to do any, all, or none of these challenges.  They are just a way to inspire your own magical crafting adventures.

*If the Semester ends before the Bean's two week span is over, the Bean will continue into the new semester.  You may only enter your Bean project in *one* of the semesters.


And this weeks bean is...
MUSHROOM!

Mushrooms (or toadstools) are the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus.
Many species of mushrooms seemingly appear overnight, growing or expanding rapidly. This phenomenon is the source of several common expressions in the English language including "to mushroom" or "mushrooming" (expanding rapidly in size or scope) and "to pop up like a mushroom" (to appear unexpectedly and quickly). In German folklore and old fairy tales, toads are often depicted sitting on toadstool mushrooms and catching with their tongues, the flies that are attracted to those mushrooms.  The term "fungophobia" was coined by William Delisle Hay of England, who noted a national superstition or fear of "toadstools".  Originally Hay noted the English as being especially fungophobic, but that phobia later spread to America & Australia, during the Colonial period.  In these regions, mushrooms were also sometimes regarded as magic or satanic, their fruiting bodies appearing quickly overnight from underground. Some believed they were the Devil's fruit, and others that mushroom rings were magical portals.

For this challenge, you have a few options:
~Create a project that uses or includes representations of mushrooms
~Create a project that utilizes at least 1 medium that YOU personally found outdoors (acorns, pine cones, twigs, etc.)
~Create a project with at least 1 medium that generally found outdoors (grass, dirt, stones, etc.)
~Create a large project that comes together unexpectedly quickly (30 mins min time requirement applies)
~Create a project inspired by a German folktale, custom, or recipe
~Create a project that incorporates the idea of a mushroom ring as a magical portal
