Class: Astronomy
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Gypsy Fortune Teller Bracelet

Brief Description: I have been revisiting a few of my older charm bracelet designs recently.  This is version 2.0 of my Gypsy Fortune Teller Bracelet.  The bright colors of the beads are reminiscent of fireworks.

Challenge: Library - June
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Wingardium Leviosa
House: Gryffindor
Project Name & Page Link: Celtic Tea Infuser

Brief Description: I currently live over 1,000 miles from my parents.  Therefore I was not able to be home with my dad to celebrate Father's Day.  My dad & I are very close, and love to stay up late watching Jane Austen movies, and whatever other BBC historical or period dramas we can find on PBS.  One night when I was in college, after mom went to bed, we even got though the first 10 episodes of The Duchess of Duke Street with Gemma Jones (who you all know as Poppy Pomfrey from the HP movies).  I was so upset at the end of each episode, worried for the main character, that I couldn't sleep.  So we made pot after pot of tea, and nearly finished the entire series before collapsing into bed around 5:00 am.  So for this Father's Day I sent dad a bunch of little goodies, including a tea infuser so he can think of me when he's up late reading or watching some Pride & Prejudice.  Furthermore, for this challenge I am recommending the book Just One Damned Thing After Another, by Jodi Taylor.  It is a celebration of two of the things my dad & I love best, history and tea!  Some of you may think you aren't interested based on the covers, but I assure you they are fabulous!  (Scavenger hunt: the beads on this piece catch and reflect the light in a rainbow of shades.)

Challenge: Quidditch - Preseason Studies
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Dueling Wizards
House: Gryffindor
Project Name & Page Link: America Bookmark

Brief Description: Did you know that the American National Quidditch Team plays in a Victorian Era stadium in New England?  Or that their stadium has a bewitched sky so it always appears to be night?  Or that their signature move is called the Harlem Shuffle and was inspired by the Muggle Harlem Globetrotters?  There's just so much to learn about the history of Quidditch in America!  For that reason, my home work reflects the team's colors, and the American celebration of freedom.  This was another one of dad's goodies this year.  (Scavenger hunt: This craft was a last minute addition to the box I was sending dad. As I had to get it out before the mailman arrived in 45 mins, it had to be done FAST!)

@FiberAlchemist: I LOVE the Star Wars sandwich wrap.  Awesome sauce.

@samash90: I just saw your NEWT proposal.  Have you completed an OWL before dear?  You must complete one OWL before you can jump into NEWTs.  (Please feel free to use the same project & subject.)

Got a large chunk of my project together his past weekend.  Hope to get some more done over the next few days as DH is on vacation,  and I've been spending a little extra time hanging out on the couch watching movies with him.  Cheesy

You all have it in you.  I have complete and utter faith in your ability to awesome.  But if it helps, I quote.... "The hard is what makes it great.  If it were easy, everyone would do it."  Name that flick!

Well, I chose a project, and yesterday I set out to pick up the supplies!

....only to find out that no craft stores carry _______ anymore in the US!  I checked Joann's, Michael's and a specialized _______ store, but none of them have it in stock anymore.  Sad  So of course I checked the internet and found that the only sources are in Europe, with huge shipping fees.  Cry  So, now I'm going to have to make some changes, and make my own ______.  After a stop at the super weird Bargain Hunt store, I found 12  _______ to start with.  (For those of you in the US, Bargain Hunt is kinda like Big Lot's.  But much, MUCH sketchier.)  Let the prep-work begin.


So the homemade _________ is only so-so.  I did receive a _______ of _______ from an Etsy seller, and I like that much better.  While racking my brains earlier today for a better way to do this, I came up with the idea of using some _______ to make _______.  (How come it seems like I left all my costume knowledge at the door when I left my last job?  Like I just checked outta there and dumped all stored info at the door.)  Anyways, picked up some of that today and I'm going to begin _______ and ________ tomorrow morning.  Meanwhile I've been practicing with the supply I ordered, and things seem to be looking up.  Please now all cross your fingers for me. 

No, seriously.  Do it now.
