3361  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Eeylops Owl Emporium Charm Bracelet on: July 12, 2011 08:03:47 AM
I'm still on a Harry Potter craftspree.  I just can't stop!  Cheesy  This bracelet is my ode to one of the places I would like to visit most in the world of Harry Potter, Eeylops Owl Emporium. The place where Hagrid purchased Hedwig for Harry on his 11th birthday.

It contains 15 owl charms of various sizes and shapes in antique silver and bronze. The beads are a mix of Czech glass, foil lined glass, goldstone, cat's eye, faux pearls, and crystal in shades of brown, black, amber, cream, tan, and white.

I hope you all enjoy the premier of Deathly Hallows Part II this week!

3365  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Harry Potter Memorial Charm Bracelet on: July 11, 2011 01:00:46 PM
I have been organizing the Decked Out for Deathly Hallows Part II swap.  My lovely partner amor_fati requested a piece of jewlery that would serve as a memorial to all the characters who died throughout the series.  I thought that if I was making a memorial to them, that I'd prefer it to be serious, but not sad, much like Rowling's books.  So I went with black, silver, white and clear glass beads, with tiny touches of red, yellow, blue and green Swarovski crystal for each of the Houses, since all of them lost members in the Battle of Hogwarts.  I also tried to have the charms commemorate the best and happiest parts of each of the characters.

The charms include: a full moon for Lupin, wolf for Tonks' patronus, the Hallows symbol, owl for Hedwig, vial of Snape's memories, Hogwarts castle, wizard for Dumbledore (how Harry always saw him, venerable and old in magical robes), courageous token for the trio's journey, socks for Dobby, cemetery gates for  Godric's Hollow, glass eye for Mad Eye Moody, stag for James and a doe for Lilly, Claddagh (symbol of Love, Loyalty & Friendship) for favorite Hufflepuff Cederic, motorcycle for Sirius, and a mischief managed charm for Fred.

And I hope that any of you going to the midnight release this week enjoy the show!

I made a few more bottle cap pendants about two weeks ago.  (I've been behind posting here!)  I like how they came out, and think I'm going to keep a few of them for myself for a change.  (I always seem to be giving things away!)   Cheesy

3367  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fit for a Princess Charm Bracelet on: July 11, 2011 11:51:13 AM
I always seem to be making charm bracelets themed around books, movies and tv shows that I love.  This weekend, while staring at my craft desk, and the boxes and boxes of beads and charms stacked on it, I decided to do something completely different with theme and color.  To try to make something that isn't really me even.  I dug through all my boxes till I came up with enough goodies to make up a fairy tale themed bracelet.  And even though it isn't my personal style, I'm very happy with how it turned out.

The charms include: a pumpkin for Cinderella's coach, the Frog Prince, a Fairy, spinning wheel for Sleeping Beauty, a crown, a heart for your true love, Fairy God Mother, a key, a royal coach, a rose for Belle, a Princess, a French coin, a gnome for Rumpelstiltskin, a castle, a dragon, Cinderella's slipper, an apple for Snow White.

The beads are a mix of AB cut glass, Swarovski crystal, AB pressed glass leaves and stars, and pearls in shades of violet, plum, rose, lemon and gold.

Mmmm...  Hard cider does sound like a great idea.  You just might want to be careful if it's fizzy.  You don't want it to blow up in the blender!
3370  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Ice Cold Pumpkin Juice on: July 11, 2011 10:48:35 AM

While trying to find good recipes for a party before the premier of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, I was really disappointed in the selection of Pumpkin Juice recipes online.  Since I was going to have a house full of people all day long, I didn't want to be trapped in the kitchen roasting a whole pumpkin.  (Let alone squeezing all the pulp!)  Orange juice, canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices didn't sound like a great plan either, because the ratios of the recipes online would have made it too thick to sip.  After all, it's not called Pumpkin Smoothie.  It's Pumpkin JUICE! 

So I did some creative thinking....  I remembered that Jello makes a Pumpkin Spice pudding, and thought that Jello might have some sort of beverage recipes online.  (Jello Recipes)  I found one for "Creamy Orange Citrus Breeze", which called for Vanilla Pudding, orange juice, and Cool Whip.  I simply substituted the juices & pudding flavors for a more autumnal themed beverage.

Ice Cold Pumpkin Juice

1 gallon cold apple cider
1 pkg. JELL-O Pumpkin Spice Instant Pudding Mix (4-serving size)
COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping (thawed)

Pour 3-4 cups of cider into the blender, along with about 1/4 of the pudding mix, and a few spoonfuls of cool whip.  Blend till creamy.  Taste.  If you would like a more pumpkiney flavor, add more of the pudding mix and re-blend.  I like to start off with a little, and see how it goes, as everyone's tastes are different. If you would like it icy, add 4-6 ice cubes into the blender.

This really tastes like Autumn in a glass.  Creamy dreamy good.  And before you all freak out that I've given you a recipe, that you can't possibly make in the middle of summer (since Pumpkin Spice Pudding only comes out in the fall), I'll let you know that while I was in Walmart last month I found a huge amount of Pumpkin Spice Pudding mix.  Granted it was in that weird aisle of mixed-up things that are on clearance, but still.  They had tons.  I bought 2 extra boxes while I was there.   Cheesy
