1  Re: ~*Harry Potter Craftalong Yule Term 2016/2017*~ Join anytime! in Craftalongs by IsikkahJai on: October 19, 2016 04:19:48 PM
Class: Muggle Studies
House: Gryffindor!!
Project name: "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
Brief Description: My daughter's teacher is so hip and cool and I admire her a lot. She's simply GREAT so I wanted to make her something special. Her favorite princess is Belle (of course, the SMART one Wink ) and in class they are doing zentangle pumpkins. I took the theme and ran with it. This COULD have been an SoAR class since it took everything I had not to chuck the marker across the room coloring in all those fiddly bits but I decided it was the perfect project for Muggle Studies ^_^ I HOPE it fits the bill anyway. Zentangle is not for me i think.

Class: Astronomy
House: Gryffindor!!
Project: Italian Herb, Tomato and Cheese bread
Project Link: http://www.bunsenburnerbakery.com/2016/07/italian-herb-tomato-bread.html
Brief Description: Astronomy this trimester was all about the sun so I decided to bake! Unfortunately, it was also 98 degrees outside xP So I got heat outside AND in the house. I baked this bread for my daughter's class since they learn about a different vegetable every month and I wanted to show them a different way they could use tomatoes in food Cheesy (It was well received :>)

And now for my first completed assignment in 4 years for the HPC  Shocked

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Charms
House: Gryffindor!!
Project Name: Building up the borders
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I wanted to create a nice card for my daughter's Chinese Mandarin teacher that was bright and colorful since his room was really bare. I made it cute because I thought his students would enjoy it. But i discovered in the giving of it that he's very formal and awkward at receiving gifts and prefers more simple and understated decoration (such as the Chinese calligraphy paintings). So I am establishing good boundaries with him by only crafting in his preference and at the same time crafting literal boundaries with the borders on the card Cheesy
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic
House: Gryffindor!!
Project Name: Legacy of Bravery
Brief Description: For the first time ever, I made CHILI. I have always hated the smell, the taste, even buying it. EW! Just made my stomach turn to put the stuff in a pot and stir it. But I love to cook and I consider it one of my best abilities. People regularly request recipes from me and I feel proud (since I'm a chronic Self-Doubter). I wanted this to be my HoM assignment because I want to people to notice how BRAVE I am trying new things when the fear of failure beats at me everyday. I am the embodiment of Gryffindor today because I overcame my fear of Chili (lol. It was DAMN GOOD!) and I was Brave enough to share it with my family. I want future generations to see how one can BECOME BRAVE; that they aren't always born with it Smiley

4  Themed Advent Calendar Swap in New Swap Theme Ideas by IsikkahJai on: August 15, 2016 10:38:06 AM

I have ALWAYS missed this swap for one reason or another. ALWAYS! And I am always secretly impressed when crafters can manage holidays AND this ginormous swap. Like, whhhhyyyy would you do that to yourself?! Cheesy You are the bravest and most organized people I know! But I don't celebrate the holidays for personal reasons and I feel left out of the CHRISTMAS STOCKING SWAP and the ADVENT CALENDAR when they come up. Can't we just have these swaps be Seasonal or Themed instead of "Holiday"?

Same rules would apply. You'd sign up, get one partner, have two months (or more) to craft for one month of gift-opening goodies (including the calendar itself). Package can be sent in numerous smaller ones or in a large package once.

BUT! The gorgeous thing about it is, the theme can be customized to anything!  It can entail themes like Seasons, Favorite things, Books, Anime/Manga/Studio Ghibli, Movies, or Geekery. OR it can even be an "INSPIRATION swap" where there are card prompts instead of crafted 3-D things where each day the recipient would open a card and craft/write/meditate on the prompt. We can make it as big or as small as we like.

I just want to be part of one  Cheesy But I can't organize. Here's a link to the one MareMare hosted back in 2011:

Oxy that journal is AMAZING! \O/ And now here's MY lovely art journal! Sarasmile is a closet fantasy artist Wink I just know it! Her book is full of whismy and wonderful mixes of materials. I LOVE it. LOVE!

The Cover: For some reason photobucket didn't want to rotate stuff for me and is being a butthead so you might get a bit of a crick in yer neck looking but at least they're posted!  Cheesy

The first page and strangely, one of my favorties. It's a very pleasing design Cheesy

ADORABLE Hearts! <3

The cutest little birds in the world


A "wood" cut out faeire Wink

Probably my two favorite things on ONE page: Travel and MUSIC!  Grin

Gawd -_- Crappy blurry pic of a lovely silhouette and cut out/silhouette from a book page

Nene Thomas and shiny pretty pastel bubbles! <3

Hee hee, reminds me of my sister and I  Cheesy

Beautiful water color dragonflies. I freaking love watercolor!

And Sara was thoughtful enough to make it as a "binder" set up so I can add pages at my leisure, which I really like. She was silly to worry! We've bonded over the experience and I am VERY glad I can call her friend as well as have some of her artwork for my personal use. It was a LOVELY swap! Although my journal is someone less....artsy :< And I feel bad for that. But the one I sent is sure full of writing space, that's for sure  Roll Eyes

8  Scavenger Hunt Swap in New Swap Theme Ideas by IsikkahJai on: June 04, 2016 10:36:04 AM

I remember we had a few of these years back, where there was a list of fifteen or so "themes" and we have to craft within those themes a certain amount of points. Like, the one I participated in was a Twilight Scavenger Hunt swap and there were themes like "something Sparkly", "Hot and cold", "something with a B", "something to warm you up" and "something you could bite into". You got to choose 5 or so and craft based on your partner's questionnaire.

There was another one that was centered around YOUR hometown as well. Like "Your favorite place", "Local attractions", "A place that scares you" and "something from your childhood".

If we could come up with a good theme for this, would anyone be interested? Probably one medium and a few smalls and possibly July as a time frame? Keep it light and fun. Although I do miss those heavy crafting swaps sometimes  Roll Eyes I know, I'm insane in the membrane  Cheesy

List of ideas:
Specific Movie/book/TV series, Music, Nature, Seasons, Favorite Things, Cultural, Foreign Languages, Historical, Fantasy, favorite crafts,

WOOOW TEENSY stitches!!  Shocked It's really impressive how neat that is! I love the Stitch! xD My BFF would reach through the screen and steal it.

I received my package from Smeddley! My kids actually found it shoved inside a bush. Gawd only know how long it's been there :p But! At least it wasn't stolen!  Grin Even with her being hurt I am amazed and humbled that she still made me an amazing package. Her crochet skills are superior in every way!

The movies she chose from my list were "Ratatouille", "Labyrinth", and "Shall We Dance?"

The shot of the trio. Aren't they so amazing!?! (no they're not all "tiny" but I ain't complaining. No freaking WAY would I!)  Grin

Jareth!! He's so smart and clean looking in his black and grey. Look at his tiny lace cravat! it's so clever and it adds just the right touch. But his hair is my fave  Cheesy perfect yarn for that. My wild goblin king will be throned on my head board so he can watch me while I sleep. (No, not creepy at all right?)

We're calling this one the "shall we dance" inspired stuffie even though in the movie, there's no ballet. How could I possibly care though! LOOK AT HER!! \O/ Her wee shoes and her tight brown bun! She can dance with me anytime! The stitches on this doll are so even. Jealloouusssssss  Cheesy

REMY!! The "little chef" in the flesh. Er.... kinda  Cheesy I freaking love this movie! With his little hat OH MY GOSH. Love him! He's a solid piece too. No wiggly bits.

Smeddley out did herself. Now she needs to take a rest! Thank you for my wonderful new friends!
