Aaaand...I've received the most awesome package from bunny1kenobi!

Here's a group shot:

The AWESOMEST item, a leaky cauldron sign!! This is wonderful and I can't wait to put it up in my kitchen. She sent chain and a hanger as well, so it will look just like it's hanging in Diagon Alley  Cheesy

Next, a note pad from Tosche Station - totally LOVE this. Even Mr. Road laughed when he saw it.

From the Jasmine Dragon (!!), this awesome to go mug for my tea:

And last, but not least, a white lotus necklace (I'm now officially a member Wink ) and Shadowhunter chapstick!

Thank you so much, bunny! You totally rock. Grin

Love the mason jar, the scrappy flag, and passion! This gallery always makes me happy.

Speaking of happy, I received from quaggy yesterday! She chose the word "WILD" and embodied the word beautifully in this piece:

I LOVE the way she did the leaves, the border, and the fringe. Of course, the frog is wonderful and has special meaning for her.

Thank you so much, quaggy! I'm honored to have been the recipient of one of your first prayer flags. Smiley

Wonderful news - congrats, Erin!!!

AH! Love seeing your faces ladies!!! So jealous of your meet up.  Cheesy

And, apologies lovely HPCers, I got a little caught up in the April Foolery. The Iron Chef Hogwarts secret ingredient for April is NOT SPAM, I just couldn't resist when the theme fit so nicely into the challenge.  Grin

So....the REAL Secret Ingredient For April Is....


Get fancy with these cucumber feta rolls, be refreshed with this cucumber mint lemonade, or channel summer with this mango, cucumber, and watermelon salad.

so glad to have this little corner of the interwebs to brighten my day

Most definitely! Cheesy

I have some projects to turn in! Yay!

Class: Alchemy
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Wood-burned Necklace
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: I wood-burned a wooden disk for the centerpiece of this project. The pendant is attached to a leather cord wrapped in dyed yarn with a wooden bean fastener.  
Project Picture:

Class: Apparition
SPEW: Stitch for Syria
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: My Stitch for Syria
Project Page Link: https://www.concern.net/en/stitch-syria-help-refugees-our-cross-stitch-challenge
Brief Description: Thanks to noodle-bug for turning me on to this cause. Concern Worldwide hosts embroidery sessions with Syrian refugees to encourage warmth, hope, and friendship. As a way to help show my solidarity to these refugees and hopefully help them feel better, I participated by stitching my own version of the Stitch for Syria pattern and mailed it off to Concern Worldwide in London.
Project Picture:

Class: Arithmancy
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Gluten-free pancakes
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: In an attempt to address some minor health issues, I've been attempting "low wheat" in my dietary choice as of late. I'm not strict about it, and certainly make exceptions (like green bagels in the office on St. Patrick's Day), but I am enjoying a bit of experimentation and just increasing the awareness of what I eat a bit. For dinner last night, I used by standard Betty Crocker pancake recipe, but substituted wheat flour for gluten-free flour (Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Flour). Pretty good!

Recipe (from Betty Crocker Cookbook):

1 c. flour (I used GF!)
3 tsp. baking powder
1 T sugar or brown sugar (I used brown)
1/4 t salt
1 egg
3/4 c milk
2 T vegetable oil
(I also added blueberries!)

Combine all ingredients, drop 1/4-1/3 c batter into warmed pan, flip, and enjoy! (I like to cook in coconut oil.)

Project Picture:

Class: Astronomy
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Tie-Dyed Tees for Easter
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: I made these spring-inspired t-shirts for my cousin's kids as Easter gifts. The colors - red, gold, yellow, and orange (with a little bit of blue thrown in) combine in these bright shirts!

17  Hogwarts Kitchens in Craftalongs by Abbeeroad on: February 24, 2016 07:01:29 AM
Hogwarts will continue to host "Iron Chef Hogwarts" this semester! Each month a new secret ingredient will be revealed. All Hogwarts students who prepare a dish containing the secret ingredient will earn the secret ingredient badge displayed below and be entered into the Ion Chef Hogwarts giveaway at semester's end to win a yet-to-be-announced prize!

If you make a dish with the secret ingredient each month, your name will be entered into the drawing at the end of the semester THREE times for THREE chances to win!

Be sure to add the header Iron Chef Hogwarts: SECRET INGREDIENT (e.g. MUSHROOM) to your entry. And double up with existing classes/challenges to claim house points (Iron Chef Hogwarts entries that do not fit a class/challenge prompt will not count for house points)

The secret ingredient for MAY is....


Get crispy with baked kale chips, go straightforward with this kale salad with apples and cheddar, or get smooth with a kale and banana smoothie!

NOTE: All secret ingredients are chosen at random from a list of ingredients that have been actual Iron Chef secret ingredients on the US muggle television show. That being said, if you are allergic to any ingredient posted, you may still enter and earn your badge IF you choose a recipe that is traditionally made with the secret ingredient but substitute that single ingredient with an allergy-safe version. Please call out any substitutions in your post. Only substitutions based on allergy or other health-related dietary restrictions will be accepted. Thank you for your cooperation!

Class: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Scaled Salamander Tie-Dye
Project Page Link: http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Salamander
Brief Description: In the Wizarding World, salamanders are small fire dwelling lizards that feed on flames. I discovered a variation of this species with scaly red/orange/yellow firey skin as depicted in this scale tie-dye fat quarter. The little bugger made friends with our pet gecko, and was living in our furnace! Wink
Project Picture:

Class: Flying
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Unexpected Slush Dye
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: The thing about dyeing, especially snow/ice/LWI methods, is that you never know what the outcome will be. Each dye is an adventure into the unknown! We got some wintery mix weather this past Tuesday, and the resulting snow/ice/slush served as the medium for this dye project. I wasn't sure what to expect from the slush, but I like how it came out!
Project Picture:

Class: Study of Ancient Runes
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Mandala Tie Dye
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: I tried my hand at the tie-dye mandala technique for this project. I've used this fold technique before, but like to revisit it from time to time in an attempt to get crisper lines. I think I need to keep working on balancing my dye and maybe tying a bit tighter. Traditionally, mandalas offer balancing visual elements, symbolizing unity and harmony. This one could be a bit more balanced, but I like to think of balance as a goal one is always reaching for - like the ultimate WIP. Cheesy
