Shout out to noodle-bug and the career office for seriously lighting a fire under my broom this semester! A few more classes/challenges to turn in! Headmistress, I did my best to alphabetize, but I'm not sure how you arrange the challenges vs the classes, so if you need me to rearrange, just say the word. Smiley

Challenge: Bertie Bott's Bean: Cherry
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Blue wood-burned pendant
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438581.new#new
Brief Description: Light and whimsical, this pendant is like a cherry blossom in its playfulness. Made for the STS swap, it's my hope that this pendant will fly to a new owner soon, in the continual cycle of make, give, and make again that mirrors our transient time on this earth (that's not too much of a stretch, right? Wink).
Project Picture:

Class: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Chinese Chickpeas
Project Page Link: Recipe Link
Brief Description: Did you know that most gnomes are vegetarians (#9!)?. This vegetarian twist on a traditional American-Chinese dish is sure to satisfy any garden gnome.
Project Picture:

Challenge: March Detention
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Snow-dyed Fat Quarters
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: We've had a good winter here on the east coast for snow. I tried to take advantage and do as much snow dying as I could. The culmination of several months snow dyeing came to fruition yesterday when I cut all my dyed fabrics into fat quarters to be offered in the STS swap! Woohoo for progress!
Project Picture:

Challenge: March Headmistress Challenge
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Green wood-burned pendant
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438581.new#new
Brief Description: Balance is tricky for me when creating pieces. Too much of this, too little of that, too much on this side, not enough on that side - I'm always fiddling until the last moment. However, I'm actually happy with how this pendant perfectly balances several elements: wood, design, wrapped wire, beads, and cord. Everything comes together to create a balanced piece of art that you can wear!

153  Jewelry from Wood Scraps in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Abbeeroad on: March 21, 2015 11:53:03 AM
I put these under reconstructed since they are made from scraps of wood scrounged from Mr. Road's scrap bucket. A few tweaks with a drill and my woodburner, add some wire, cord, and beads - and voila! - something new from scraps.

I was inspired by the Fiber/Mixed Media Jewelry Swap hosted by sheepBlue, so if you haven't checked out that gallery yet, I highly encourage a visit!

Here are my newest pieces inspired by the swap:

Some close ups:

And here are the pieces I made for the swap itself:

For LeapFeetFirst:

For P_E_S_T:

Thanks for looking!!

J_Kieviet - I love your idea to replace shower bombs! The re-usability is genius! I would use them even when not sick - in fact, I just might make some for myself. Love it.

Class: Arithmancy
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Snow Dyed Fabrics
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Each snow dye experiment is just that - an experiment. I never know what the outcome will be. It is definitely a craft of surrendering expectations and control to the craft gods. I follow my muse in applying dye, and never have plan before-hand.
Project Pictures:

A "pre" pic:

And "post!" These are obviously different projects based on color outcomes - I may not know what to expect, but the laws of reality still apply!  Cheesy

Class: DADA
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Classic Beef & Tomato Macaroni Soup
Project Page Link: For full recipe click here
Brief Description: In my hometown there is a small hole-in-the-wall diner called Spanky's that makes the best Beef & Tomato Macaroni Soup (and cheeseburger deluxes!). This recipe is so close I can almost pretend I'm home! Comforting and soothing on multiple levels!
Project Pictures:

Class: Herbology
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Lotus Stamped Fabric
Project Page Link:N/A
Brief Description: The lotus symbol and its many meanings resonate very strongly with me for some reason. One of the many meanings behind the lotus flower is rebirth - both literal and figurative from a Buddhist perspective. To celebrate the lotus, springtime, and rebirth, I carved a lotus stamp from a soft lino block and stamped it onto a scrap of dyed fabric.

I received from LeapFeetFirst!! She sent an incredibly generous package. I can't even pick a favorite item. It's all soft, and colorful, and awesome!

Here's a group shot to start:

She sent me TWO necklaces. A tassel necklace made with yarn she spun and dyed:

And a long necklace made with paper beads she also made:

If that wasn't enough, she sent extra paper beads and some clay buttons:

She wrapped everything in felt made from fibers she hand dyed and felted!!!

Oh, and I almost forgot she sent two extra tassels:

Amazing, right? Thank you so much, LeapFeetFirst. I can't express how much I love it all.

157  Re: Prayer Flag Swap R5: New Year, New Inspiration: Gallery of Goodies in The Swap Gallery by Abbeeroad on: March 03, 2015 07:20:01 AM
I received from seeuudee and Smmarrt!

First, from Smmarrt:

NEST, which became HOME, which is exactly the interpretation I meant, of course! With a burlap nest and batik eggs:

(sorry it's a little wrinkled from the journey!):

And CREATE from seeuudee:

I love the flower and the way the ribbon stem hangs off the flag.

These are perfect for me ladies, thanks so much!

Posting from my phone so I hope these pics are not squished and are correctly oriented! OK, that was a fail. Take 2 below:

First, from Renstar:

Abundance with an awesome triple spiral. It looks like she couched ribbon and yarn for the spirals. Love the effect.

And from artsycandice:

OM. I love the red accent and simplicity of this flag. It's very zen and perfect for the word.

Thank you ladies! I love them both!

Project Picture:

Class: Divination
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Simplify Prayer Flag
Project Page Link N/A
Brief Description: This flag was made as part of the Prayer Flag Swap, where each participant made 6 flags including one for themselves. This is my flag. The word "simplify" signifies my desire to bring this quality into my life more. If I can live more simply, change and renewal will be less impactful to my mindset and general life flow.
Project Picture:

Class: Potions
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Esperanza Prayer Flag
Project Page Link N/A
Brief Description: For this flag, several pieces were "prepped" prior to being combined into this final piece: A painted a piece of muslin for the background, dyed strips of fabric for the sun rays, and cardboard painted muslin for the sun center.
