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 the Headmistress or I will complete ALL the classes and challenges posted this semester.  So relax, and craft what you love.

Class: Herbology
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name:  Tea Time Mug Rug

Brief Description: Now that I'm mostly settled into my new house, I seem to have distributed all my mug rugs to various areas of the house.  Somehow, for reasons I cannot begin to imagine, I didn't have one that fit in well with my new studio.  So, I pulled out some more of the awesome teacup printed fabric that sheepBlue sent me in a previous swap, and made myself one.  (I made a similar one before for a swap.  Perhaps for noodle-bug?  Can't remember at the moment.)  Anyways, the mustard, plum and teal fits in beautifully in my studio, and having a cup of tea beside me helps me craft my best. Cheesy

388  Dragonfly Dreams Charm Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Mistress Jennie on: May 30, 2014 12:54:19 PM
Now that I've finally settled into my new home, I've been on a bracelet making kick.  This is one I had been dreaming of for a little while, and finally had time to put it together.  It's filled with 17 Tibetan silver dragonfly charms in four different designs. The beads are a plethora of Czech glass in shades of iridescent teal, turquoise, sap green, gold, magenta, violet and rose.

Class: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name & Link: My First Dreamcatcher

Brief Description:  I recently started organizing the Dreamcatacher Swap.  Only problem?  I've never made one before!  So I took out my wand and gave this a shot.  It contains one pattern, and 4 colors (turquoise, teal, purple and grey).

Class: Charms
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: DIY Button Wall Art

Brief Description:  I recently saw some adorable wooden button wall art, and knew I needed some for my new studio.  But the colors weren't really my style, nor was shelling out $30 for something I could make for a fraction of that cost.  So I picked up an 12" unfinished wooden charger for $4.80 with a coupon, and set to work.  First I drilled holes for the button, using a 1/2" drill bit.  Then I did some paint work.  Did an under coat of black along the inside edge, the outer rib, and near in/around the holes.  I went over that with some watered down gray paint, in order to give the button depth and texture.  A final coat of sealer, mixed with a tiny bit of shimmer dust and I have a grey mother-of-pearl button for my wall!  I can't wait to hang it next to the giant wooden safety pin I found at TJ Maxx last week.  (Seriously guys, I bought a 30" long wooden safety pin, that really opens and closes, for $20 at TJ Maxx!  You should all be jealous.)

Class:Potions
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Kolsch Mustard

Recipe Link: http://www.freshpreserving.com/recipe.aspx?r=57
Brief Description:  My husband enjoys kolsch style beer, especially in the summer, but it isn't always easy to find.  In fact, the last time I found it readily available in various locations, I was in Koln, Germany back in high school!  Much like real champagne coming only from that specific region in France, technically only that style of beer, made in Koln, Germany are "real" kolschs, though there are now a *few* American microbreweries making kolsch-style beers.  Meanwhile, since moving down to TN, we've found lots of great stores for wine and liquor, but very few good beer options for DH.  So last week, while wandering through World Market over in Nashville, I came across Stoudts Karnival Kolsch.  I knew I had to pick some up for DH, but claimed one for myself to make a lighter, more summery version of a beer mustard that I made last year.  I swapped out the brown mustard seeds for yellow, and ended up with a lighter, but still flavorful and pungent mustard.

Class: Transfiguration
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Librarian Retirement Bracelet

Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433730.msg5201305#msg5201305
Brief Description:  Oh no!  My avifors spell doesn't seem to be going well.  I managed to conjur up a flock of bats, but they were all very tiny!  The size of the tip of my pinky finger!  They kept fluttering around my room though, so I transfigured them into tiny fluttery bead pins for a new bracelet. Wink  My MIL asked me to create this bracelet for a friend who is retiring.  She's been the school librarian for years, and it includes library themed charms, as well as other things she happens to love.

390  Retirement Charm Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Mistress Jennie on: May 29, 2014 11:18:17 AM
Final bracelet post of the day!  Smiley  This was created at the request of my mother-in-law to give to a friend who is retiring from her job as the school librarian.  The charms include books, heart, cat, "Well behaved women rarely make history", cross, school house, P for Patricia, angel, pen nib, newspaper, giraffe, and Lincoln, since she took the children to the Lincoln Library in Springfield IL every year.





I think this one has inspired me to make a general Librarian themed charm bracelet too!  Cheesy
