Oh wow I love that sweet little gold fish! So cute!
And as an update on my owl, its coming along pretty well! I havent been keeping very well with my 3 recipes a day rule, but still have been progressing. Its actually pretty insane how long it actually takes to write them out.  Depending on how long the original recipe is, sometimes its taken me 30 to 45 minutes to write 3 recipes for each of the 3 books. Ah well. I know theyll be loved and its inspiring me to get an actual desk top computer and printer (one day).

Oh! Do we have a January Detention yet? I didn't see it, but I've been pretty much blind today because of "too much" cleaning. I think I need to make some of Ant Bee's cookies...


And thanks for the love on my crafts, guys! Elli's party was a super hit and the necklaces went over the moon with the moms. Hooray for my first ever project working with charms!

That Tom Riddle diary is too cute. My kids would go bonkers pretending to write in that. Cheesy

Jennie, I'm always amazed at how awesome your charm items are! I adore the stitch markers! I seriously need to get out and make myself some since I always loose those little plastic circle ones and something like yours would be hard to miss.

Ok, so I have officially recuperated from holiday everything and then my 6 y/o's birthday everything! Whew! And now, for my insane list of homework to turn in:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Horcrux Hunt
House:Ravenclaw
Project Name: Rowena Ravenclaw's Diadem/Ravenclaw's colors
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: For my daugher's birthday, she wanted a Brave theme. So, instead of chocking goodie bags full of candy that their parents don't want especially after Christmas, I decided to do a little craft for them. Each girl got a necklace with all of the charms in silver and then added were some blue crystals to represent the wisps. Perhaps Rowena and Merida are related as they share the same colors?
(sorry for the lousy pictures!)

Class: Potions
House: still Ravenclaw
Project Name: Pocket weaponry
Project link: n/a
Brief Description: As I said, my kiddo had a birthday. We also had a few cousins that were fellas there and we didn't want to "embarass" them with jewelry. So, i took a bow and arrow, a bear and some wisps and used my shrinking spell on them and stuck them on a "manly" keychain! I don't how they all turned silver though. Must work on that...


Class: December Detention
House: Ravenclaw
Project name: little house night gowns
Project link: n/a  but it is from Simplicity pattern 3586
Brief Description: I began my Christmas crafting in July becaus I said *this* year I wasn't going to stress myself out and be crafting up until the day of. Well, apparently I lied to myself because I finished these night gowns Christmas Eve. It wasn't even b/c I was lazy either! I promised four people I'd make them costumes and then I got caught up doing the "other" Christmas gifts. Ah well. Maybe next year. These are our Little House night gowns:
and I am terribly sorry for how dark this pic is. I took another, but I can't find it for some reason


Class: Charms
House: Ravenclaw
Project name: Knooked scarf
Project link: n/a
Brief description: I bought this Knook kit a while back because I love crocheting and I truly suck at knitting. What could be better and cooler than knitting with a crochet hook?!! And while it still took me a bit longer than it would have if I just straight crocheted it, I still loved doing it. It did take me quite a bit to figure out what the instructions were saying and I had to rip out a few rows until I got it right, though. Still, it was fun and I learned a new way to use yarn Cheesy and a happy little girl got a scarf for Christmas.



Class: Arithmancy
House: Ravenclaw
Project name: 3 piece bow and arrow set
Project Link: coming soon
Brief description: The last thing I crafted for my daughter's birthday this weekend were these miniature bow and arrow sets. What better way to make parents like me than giving their children projectiles? They were a huge hit, though! And they were comprised of three pieces. I burned each child's name into the wood of the bow before soaking it in water for a few hours. Then I bent it gently and applied the second of the three which is the bow string. Lastly, I clipped q-tips for the arrows. These suckers are awesome, too, because I've seen a few go up to 30 feet!



Class: Holiday Recipe Challenge
House: Ravenclaw
Project name: Every year hot cocoa mix
project link: no link, but from the book Gifts in a Jar : Cocoas, Cappuccinos, Coffees and Teas
Brief description: Every year (for the last 6 years) I give hot cocoa mix to almost everyone. I vary it in different types of glasses, sometimes mugs, sometimes bowls and jars. This year, i applied a drawer handle onto a mason jar and stuffed the mix inside. While the containers and accoutraments are different, my mix is the same. It's from the Gifts in a Jar book line, titled Cocoas, Cappuccinos, Coffees & Teas and it is simply scrumptious! Here you go!
Double Chocolate Hot Cocoa
2/3 C. powdered coffee creamer
2/3 C. milk chocolate chips
2/3 C. powdered sugar
2/3 C. powdered chocolate flavored drink mix (I use Nestle's rich and creamy hot chocolate mix)
2/3 C. powdered instant dry milk
1 1/3 C. miniature marshmallows
           Combine all ingredients and place in a wide mouthed 1-quart canning jar. Attach with instructions.
Instructions:
For one serving, place 2 Tablespoons Double Chocolate Hot Cocoa Mix in a mug. Pour boiling water over the mixture and stir until the mix is completely dissolved. If desired, garnish with additional marshmallows.

I have also discovered this year that if you add a Tablespoon or two of a Peppermint Mocha coffee creamer, it tastes even better!!
Here are the jars and mixes for this year

Ok, so Ive done it again. I took a break.  We were out of town, and then out of town again, and then I had to cram a couple of last Christmas projects that I finished on Christmas Eve of all times! I tell myself every year that Im never going to do that again and, low and behold! It happens again. Go figure.
There is currently too much awesomeness in the thread over the last two weeks to comment on, but I am in love with everything. I love Pinkleos OWL proposal, the snow flakes, the seasick crocodile and especially all of the koi! That floor painting sounds amazing!
I will be posting a crap-ton of projects in a few days, now that all of the Christmas craziness is over. I do have a bit more craziness coming up my daughter is turning 6!! Weird! When did that happen!? And I am making all of the goodie bag items, so I am thrilled to post those when I finish. Great fun!
Anywho, Im praying you all have a very fantastic and SAFE New Years!

587  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Lolita Skirts and queen of hearts <3 on: December 30, 2012 10:55:28 AM
oh very nice!! Love the queen of hearts outfit and the last skirt too. That print is fabulous! I can see why you didn't resist lol. Do you follow a pattern for your skirts or do you draft them yourself?
588  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Cathy the elf, what's your favourite colour? on: December 22, 2012 06:14:09 PM
oh my this is so adorable! My sister in law's favorite movie EVER is Elf and you have totally inspired me to make her one of these for next Christmas. Great job!!

So, I'm thinking that a day gone equals a page and a half of catching up to do and I had 6 pages to go through! I can't even comment on everything except to say that it all looks fantastic! I'm really keen on the elderberry syrup. Where did you find elderberries?!

I am also loving the stationary and the scarves! That cupcake is adorable!

In my OWL news, until today I was still plugging away at writing up all of those recipes. Then I was stupid and got my thumb caught in my sewing machine and bruised the bone so I won't be writing for a few days. That's just as well - I need to finish my youngest's night gown and a few cross stitch ornaments before wrapping everything. Shouldn't take long. I can only do the nightgown while she's asleep at night, so I'm hoping to be done tomorrow night or the night after. The ornaments are whenever during the day, so I'm really excited at how *early* I've gotten all of my Christmas stuff done...

I'm hoping to get a thing or two done for Diagon Alley within the few days after Christmas, so I'll chat more about it later.

and Aunt Bee, you crack me up.... still lol. I don't know anything about quilting. I did my first (and probably only, ahem) for when my niece was born. I made up the pattern, stitched it together and appliqued butterflies on top. Got it all put together, then when it came time to stipple it, my machine decided it didn't like the quilting foot that came with it. Can you say stitch in the ditch?  Anyway, at least I knew what colors she wanted (shabby-chic lilacs and sages). And that totally sucks about not getting done for Christmas. But that is what August birthdays are for, right?  Roll Eyes lol. Anyway, I am sure you will get it all settled long before then and good luck my friend!
590  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Harry Potter Holiday ~ Beware Nargles in Your Mistletoe! on: December 17, 2012 12:39:05 PM
I sent to HotBananaPepper quite a while ago but I know she hasn't been able to post pictures so I will post what I sent her. I also received from her this last week!
Ok, here is what I sent to her, based off of a passage in the books on when the Weasley twins grabbed a garden gnome, painted him gold, slapped a tutu on him and glued wings to his back "the ugliest angel Harry had ever seen." lol, I need to make one for me Cheesy



I love him!!

And this is what I received! I only had my phone, so I'm afraid it's not a great picture but the ornament is wonderful! I really love it and I know it's based off of one in m pinterest.  Thank you so much HotBananaPepper!!
