2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: HP Craftalong ~Spring Semester 2014~ *JOIN ANYTIME* on: April 14, 2014 01:12:20 PM
Class: Apparition
SPEW: Warren County Public Library Raffle
House: Gryffindor!

Project Name: Doctor Who TARDIS Bookmark
Brief Description: While I would love to travel this beautiful world of ours, the place I'd MOST like to travel, is among the stars.  Therefore I crafted something I might run into there, the TARDIS.  Smiley  This bookmark is being donated to the Warren County Public Library Raffle on Doctor Who Day later this month.

Class: Astronomy
SPEW: Caitlin's Smiles
House: Gryffindor!

Project Name: Craft Foam Bookmark Kits
Brief Description: Caitlin's Smiles is a wonderful charity that sends craft kits to children in hospitals.  Often seriously ill children cannot get out of their beds and have very little to keep their mind off of sickness and pain.  Caitlin's Smiles aims to change that by giving the kids something creative to work on.  And is there a better way to turn a negative into a positive than using creativity and imagination to fight off fear and pain? Each of these 30 kits contains a craft foam bookmark, and lots of self-stick foam shapes, in various themes including music, dinosaurs, birds, etc.

Class: Divination
SPEW: Warren County Public Library Raffle
House: Gryffindor!

Project Name: Doctor Who TARDIS keychain & necklace
Brief Description: When I looked up into the sky this past weekend I was shocked to see a fluffy white version of a very famous "blue box".  This keychain and necklace are being donated to the Warren County Public Library Raffle on Doctor Who Day later this month.

Class: Flying
House: Gryffindor!

Project Name: Quilted Laptop Case
Brief Description: When studying creatures who fly, I looked into two different creatures; moths and bees.  This lovely quilted laptop case is the result!  It is made with the Flora & Fauna line of fabrics from Michael Miller.  Luna Moth in mustard for the outside and Bee Hive in mustard for the lining.  I used two layers of batting, and the inside is free-motion quilted, while the outside is treated like a "lining" and is smooth.  I used this tutorial as a starting point, but heavily altered the directions, as it calls for the case to open along the short side, and I wanted it to open along the top like an envelope.

Challenge: D.A. - Patronus Charm
SPEW: Caitlin's Smiles
House: Gryffindor!

Project Name: Friendship Bracelet Kits
Brief Description: Another project for Caitlin's Smiles!  This is 25 friendship bracelet kits, with a charm, to keep kids busy while hospitalized.
Project Picture:



House Pride: Gryffindor
SPEW: Wildlife Rescue Nests
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Crocheted Bird Nest
Brief Description: This bird nest is being donated to Wildlife Rescue Nests.  When injured animals are brought into Wildlife Rescue facilities, they often lack places to put tiny creatures who need to stay warm.  Hence, reusable yarn nests!  They are used for birds, bunnies, cats, and other critters to need to be kept warm and safe without their mothers.  This one is Gryffindor red & gold to give the little creatures courage to face the big wide world ahead of them when they heal.  Cheesy

Note from the Deputy Headmistress....

Hello friends!  Yes, I fear I have yet another announcement. I feel like I've been overburdening you all with them the last few days, but hopefully this will be the last one for a bit.  I want you all to know that the post on the first page of OWLs & NEWTs has been broken up into 2 separate posts.  One for OWL's, is in the same space.  The post for NEWT's is 2 posts below that.  I'm sure you've all noticed pinkleo & my comments about just how big a project tallying House Points is.  I felt that part of the reason for that is just how dense the OWL & NEWT post was.  Editing the text every time someone had a new proposal was like wading into the jungle with nothing but a large knife.  Daunting to say the least.  Undecided

So, we're going to try this for a little bit and see if it works.  Hopefully it will help us keep Advanced Studies updated in a more timely fashion.  Thank you again for your continued patience while we work to make this wonderful place run even better!   Kiss

Note from the Deputy Headmistress...

Thank you for your patience friends!  I was able to complete updating OWLs & NEWTs this morning.  That means that the House Point totals are truly up to date, and include all submitted classes, challenges, beans, OWLs and NEWTs. 

If you have proposed an OWL or NEWT this semester, please check the list on the first page to make sure it is correct. 

If there is a mistake, do let me know.  But please, for the love of my sanity, send just one message each, and be sure to include actual information in your message.  A note that says "My OWL isn't there", is not actually helpful.  Undecided  Please include the name of the subject you are missing, and a link to the post in which you created your proposal, or your completed project post.  Your help on this is greatly appreciated!!!  Cheesy

Hi Moonflame!  Did you realize you posted two projects for Arithmancy in the same post?  You can only get House Points for one of those two posts, but you will receive SPEW points for both.  Did you mean to post one of them as another class?

Oh my Goodness!  That last one was supposed to be SoAR.  I was copy-pasting my header to save time, and forgot to change the class name for that one.  I've fixed it now.  Thanks! Smiley

Awesome!  I fixed your points too!  Cheesy

I'm guilty of this one. I really, really don't know what to make/who to craft for. I've looked at the list and most needs me shipping to them, which add to stop me -car ride to the PO with the kids, money to send it (we don't have much!), etc. I'm lame for that, really.


Many local hospitals take donations of handmade baby clothes (like hats) or baby quilts, provided the quilts are 100% cotton and are able to take the high heat of the industrial washers & dryers they use.  And many local elderly care facilities take lapghans for their residents.  We've also had folks who donate a crafted item to a charity that won't USE it, but will auction it off to raise funds.  For example, I just crafted a necklace & a bookmark for the Warren County Public Library auction.  Cheesy

Note from the Deputy Headmistress...

Hello students & staff!  As Headmistress pinkleo mentioned a few days ago, we are both in the midst of large life projects.  I have completed my move to TN, but I am now commuting to my old job in KY for the next month.  (That's a 1.5 hr drive each way!) The commute is taking its toll on my sleep schedule and my family time, not to mention my crafting time and my Craftster time.

As pinkleo said before, we are both grateful for your continued patience during this period.  (For you newbies, please know that usually both of us are "here" more often, and usually things like House Points are updated more quickly.)  I have gone and updated House Points for Classes, Challenges & House Pride ONLY.  Points for completed OWLs & NEWTs have NOT been calculated.  This will have to be done at another date, but I didn't want to let class points go on any longer without being updated.  PLEASE DO NOT message either of us asking why your OWL & NEWT points aren't in the House totals yet.  You'll just have to be a little more patient. 


Secondly, I have notinced in the tallying of points that not as many folks have completed this Join the DA Challenge as normally participate.  (Obviously you are not required to do anything you don't want to do here!)  I know it can be hard to find the time to complete a project for a stranger when you have so many demands on your time, such as crafting for family, friends, kids, and just running your everyday life!  Therefore I have decided to EXTEND the time limit on this challenge. If you are unsure about charities that accept crafted items, be sure to check out the SPEW Craftalong thread, or talk to our awesome SPEW Captain, Ant Bee for ideas.

And in an effort to encourage crafting for charity, I have also decided to extend the deadline on the Bonus SPEW Points for charity items until the end of the semester.  For each additional SPEW item you craft (beyond the Join the DA - Patronus Challenge) you will earn an additional 5 House Points, on top of the normal 10 points. These SPEW points CAN be combined with Class prompts.  For example, you could create a daffodil yellow quilt for Quilts for Kids to complete your History of Magic homework.  This would earn you 15 House Points for History of Magic, + your normal 10 SPEW points, + 5 Bonus SPEW points = 30 House Points!


I hope this sparks some ideas from the Crafty Muses!  Go forth and create art my friends.  Cheesy
