386  Green Tea & Tea Time Charm Bracelets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Mistress Jennie on: August 30, 2012 06:42:42 AM
Well, summer is officially over for me.  Not that it was all that long really.  I ended up getting about 2.5 weeks off of work, and tried to get as much crafting done in there as possible.  Last Thursday (my last official day off), I managed to complete 16 "in progress" bracelets that had been cluttering my desk for weeks.  Friday saw the completion of two more, bringing my 2 day total up to 18.  Some were already "charmed", but not beaded, some were beaded, but were missing charms, and some were just an idea in the back of my head that I had pulled out some supplies for.

Two of my favorites are the tea bracelets.  A Tea Time Bracelet, inspired by traditional black tea and lemon, and a more tranquil and zen-inspired Green Tea Bracelet. The Tea Time Bracelet includes an mix of glass, shell and crystal beads in shades of mahogany, amber, and lemon yellow.  The charms include a sugar packet, teaspoon, teacups, a fancy cake, teabags, kettle, clock, teapots, plate of toast, butter knife, and lemon slice.

The Green Tea Bracelet features a mix of glass and stone beads in shades of green, white and clear. (I really love the Aventurine beads worked in!) The charms include a sugar packet, leaves, teabags, flowers, teacups, teapot, green teabag, teaspoon, butter knife, and lemon slice.

Challenge: Detention With Snape!
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Bracelets galore!

I've been a few days late in posting this, as I did it nearly a week ago.  Last Thursday was my last day off of summer which sounds impressive, but I really only got 2.5 weeks off of work.  For those two weeks I worked to make as many items for my shop as possible.  My goal was to have my work desk empty before the start of the semester. This led to me planning and setting up tons of jewlery.  Nearly all of which I was missing some small element to complete.  For example, I had several bracelets set up with all their charms & clasps, but no beads.  Others I had made bead pins for, but was missing charms.  And partway through this, I ran out of a specific kind of jump ring that I use.  None were to be found in town, so I had to order them and wait for them to arrive. 

Well, with so many items underway, my desk was a mess.  Thursday I managed to complete 16 bracelets, and Friday afternoon I got 2 more done for a total of 18!  Like I said, some had been started and were at various points of completion.  Others were just a thought in the back of my head.  Sadly, I forgot to take an absolute "before" shot, but I did take one partway through the day on Thursday.

And here's the 16 I completed Thursday!

(I should have waited till Friday morning to get those last 2 in the picture.)

And here are some thumbnails of a few of the bracelets, just for fun.  (Kaylee/Firefly, Tea Time, Let it Snow, and Green Tea)

389  ~*Detention in the Dungeons*~ (Work-In-Progress Completion Posts) in Craftalongs by Mistress Jennie on: August 28, 2012 03:17:50 PM
~*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 may be turned in anytime during the semester, regardless of what the newest Challenge is, up until the semester ends on November 30th.  (For example, you may turn in September or October's challenges in November.)

November Challenge: Detention with Dolores
Our final challenge for the semester is to either get a start on, or finish all those pesky in-progress holiday gifts.  This can be making several of the same project (like writing endless lines with Umbridge), or finishing that one big gift that has you worried.  Spend a Saturday morning making 10 mason jars full of soup mixes for all your aunts & uncles, put together those gift baskets that you've already assembled the items for, or finally quilt that monster quilt top you pieced for mom back in July!  Anything that gets you ready for giving out those holiday gifts with a warm smile, rather than an exhausted grimace.

October Challenge: Clean Out Rotten Flobberworms? Without gloves?!?!
Our second challenge for the semester is to get through a down-and-dirty work-in-progress.  Clean a section of your basement to make yourself new craft storage space, finish painting the guest room you've been renovating, or weed & close up the garden for the end of the growing season.  Anything that gets you good and dirty!

September Challenge: Complete that Work-In-Progress!
Our first challenge of the semester will be the same as the HPC Summer Detention Challenge.  Finish a WIP (Work in Progress) to earn your badge. WIPs can be projects that you just haven't quite finished or projects that you bought all the supplies for but never got around to actually making.  If possible, post before and after pics in the gallery.  So come on in, grab a comfy chair and a nice cup of tea, and get crafting.

390  ~*Deputy Headmistress Notes*~ in Craftalongs by Mistress Jennie on: August 28, 2012 03:17:32 PM
Notes from the Deputy Headmistress...

~*The Geminio Challenge*~

As promised it's time for a new Deputy Headmistress Challenge!  The Geminio Challenge is simple, and as it's name implies it involves *duplicates*.  There are even multiple options for you to choose from!  To complete the challenge you may either:
Create 2 (or more!) identical copies of the same object... or, replicate an existing object with a copy of your own crafting.  Ideas include creating 10 matching friendship bracelets for Christmas presents, whipping up a bunch of jar mixes to keep you fed all winter, or recreating an item you've seen somewhere else and loved.

Now, for the fine print... If you choose to recreate something you've seen somewhere else (here on Craftster, Pinterest, Etsy, etc.) then you MUST provide a link to the original inspiration work AND (this is the most serious) it must NOT BE an item you intend to sell in any way.  Imitation is said to be the sincerest form of flattery, but ripping off the work of other artists and passing it off as your own is just plain wrong.  Recreating a pillow you saw on Etsy as a gift for your mom is absolutely fine, but selling the (copied) work of another crafter is wrong and will not be tolerated in the Craftalong.  

As an added incentive, this challenge CAN be submitted to ONE class as well.  Once you complete this challenge, you may snag your Geminio Challenge Badge AND a George Weasley CFC.  This challenge will run until the end of term (December 1st.)
