What a great way to start the gallery!  

And now, let's continue it....  I received the most beautiful package from noodle-bug this morning.  She sent me an owl to let me know that I've been accepted into the Hogwarts faculty Astronomy Club!  And membership comes with a welcome package.  Cheesy  

First, an absolutely stunning cowl.  It is knitted from a silk & angora, and is so light and soft!


Second she included a beautiful hand-bound notebook to record my astronomical observations.


But wait!  When you look closer you find that each of these two lovely objects is actually a star map in disguise!  That's right, noodle-bug knitted beads into the cowl, and stamped tiny golden stars onto the notebook, to create maps of the stars that are found in the Equatorial band.  The cowl even changes texture at the top and bottom to represent the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn.  Here's a detail shot of the tiny golden beads in the cowl:


And here's a detail shot of the stamping on the notebook:


I should mention, that without asking, noodle-bug managed to perfectly match my winter hat too!  Also, she was kind enough to include some Jelly Babies, candy, and bits & bobs of broken jewlery to play with, but I got side tracked with photos, and forgot to snap some of them....  Bad Jennie!


Noodle-bug, do you have any idea how much I love you?  So very, very much, that even though it is currently 99 degrees (with 70% humidity) here in Tennessee, I pulled out my winter coat just to get an action shot for you!


Thank you so much dear noodle-bug!  I will treasure both of my new goodies.  Cheesy

The Dark Mark has been spotted over the Quidditch pitch!  Members of the Order of the Phoenix & Dumbledore's Army are rushing that way to help stop the Death Eaters, and they need all the wands they can get.  

Will you help remove the Dark Mark?

Reminder:  Sendouts are tomorrow.  That's right, tomorrow, Monday, July 13th! 

So far 9 people have already sent out their awesome packages!  Way to go you crafty little witches.  Cheesy

If you think you are going to be late sending for any reason, please message both your parter AND myself, with an estimated send out date.  I do not enjoy chasing folks for information, so please don't leave me out of the loop.  I do make note of who does, and who does not communicate, so please,  for the love of Merlin, please don't make me leave "poor communication" in your feedback.

Finished my Flying project yesterday, and I'm most of the way through my Herbology project, which I hope to finish today.  Wish me luck!

A new Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean Mini-Challenge has been posted!  



What's this week's bean!?!?  Take the Portkey to the Bertie Bott's Bean Bag to find out!


Please note that 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.  None of the HPC staff will complete ALL the classes and challenges posted this semester.  So relax, and craft what you love.  

Also remember that you have until 11:59 Central Standard Time today to finish posting the "old" bean.

Part of me wants to attempt to calculate how long this whole package took to put together, and part of me just wants to be in denial and pretend it only took the required 3-4 hours, haha.


Remember, 3-4 hours is the *bare minimum* for a Large project.  And this swap is for an *AWESOME* project, which is basically always going to take much longer than 3-4 hours.  Most will be in the area of 10-30 hours, with some over that.  I'm fairy certain that I spent about 24-30 hours on mine too.

D'oh!  I can't believe I forgot to put this up a few days ago.  Especially since I made the badge and prompt in May!  Anyways....



A new Detention Challenge has been posted!
Be sure to check the Detention in the Dungeons Post to see what it is....



Remember, you can do any, all, or none of the Detention Challenges as they come up each month.  The goal here is always to be excited about our crafting!  Also please remember that you can submit ANY of the Detention Challenges at ANY time during the semester.  For example, you may turn in the March or April's challenges in May.  Smiley
