@FreakieGeekie: I was totally thinking about making dice earrings for my Muggle Studies badge!  I guess it's true what they say about great minds.  Wink

Class: Astronomy
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Woman's Best Friend Charm Bracelet
Brief Description: Did you know that the star we see in the sky, known as Sirius, is actually a pair of stars?  The binary star system is made up of Sirius A and Sirius B, and together they are part of the constellation Canis Major.  This idea of two separate objects being part of the same whole, reminded me of a friend and her two beloved dogs, Fiona & Kaedo.  Together they form a whole and loving family, just as all the stars together form a constellation.  This charm bracelet represents their family.  It is made up of pewter & Tibetan silver charms, and features glass, Czech glass, and stone beads in shades of pink, black, smokey grey, and clear.

NEWT Update

I have now completed the first 22 rounds on my afghan!  Which sounds like a whole heck of a lot, but according to my calculations, I'm only about 35% of the way done.  Managed to do about 10% while spending yesterday curled up watching Doctor Who with a friend.  I'm guessing that's the last large chunk of time I will be able to spend on it for a while.  I'll probably just get small bits in here and there over the next few weeks.

A male friend of mine has complained that he likes my charm bracelets, but that he can't really get away with wearing one.  It got me thinking about what kind of accessories I could make for him, and the rest of the fandom boys I know.  I finally realized that guys can get away with carrying charms around, as long as they are on something manly like a keychain.  Smiley

I've been on a jewelry making spree again today.  Trying to get some stuff done before the semester starts back up tomorrow.  As part of luxuriating in the very last bit of winter break, I spent all of yesterday watching Doctor Who.  Now I've clearly got Who on the brain.  And so I give you Police Box Pendants on faux-leather woven cords.  Now what else can I do with the charms on my desk....

HPC Problem #7: When you have new crafts made up, but you've done so many HPC projects that you don't have any Subjects left for them to fit in.

Actually it sounds like what happens to Jennie *when* she drinks.  Pink Jennie.  My husband would run wild with it if he ever found out.

P.S.  What do Racky & Cackle call their swaps?

Announcement from the Deputy Headmistress...


Your brilliant Headmistresses have devised an epic new *series* of Mini-Challenges for you!

"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.  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 extra House Points, and a Badge for that challenge.  Once a new challenge is posted, the old one is gone and cannot be entered.  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.

What's this week's bean!?!?  Take the Portkey to the Deputy Headmistresses Office to find out!  And while you're there be sure to check out the inspiration projects from all around Craftster.
