1  Re: HP Craftalong ~Summer Semester 2014~ *JOIN ANYTIME* in Craftalongs by WhistleFish on: July 08, 2014 10:57:57 PM
Hey strangers! Finally setting some time to stop by and turn in some assignments for this semester. I felt like I made more than this so far this semester but apparently not. I think I may be lacking in the crafting department. (I just started working full time as opposed to part time and there are some nights I definitely just want to sit and do absolutely nothing. Then go to bed early.) Hope you're all well! In a little bit I'm gonna make some tea and browse through all the projects I've missed lately. Perhaps it'll inspire me to get crafting more! Hehe.

Class/Challenge: Alchemy
SPEW: N/A
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Ocean Inspired Crocheted Baby Blanket
Project Page Link: None yet
Brief Description: As soon as I got a couple rows done on this baby blanket I was amazed by the different colors in this yarn. So so so so pretty and with the stitch I was using it completely reminded me of the ocean. I would just lay it out all nice and look at it, getting lost in the colors....just like the ocean. The mama-to-be was quite excited to receive it...I can't wait to see pictures of a little baby rolling around on there!

Class/Challenge: Muggle Studies
SPEW: N/A
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Quick Father's Day Mini Book
Project Page Link: Blog Post
Brief Description: A last minute project before Father's Day... a little mini book for my husband that little Luna helped me make for him. I didn't pick one photograph to focus on but a lot of photographs with a common theme: my husband and my daughter. I think it turned out pretty cute!
Project Picture: Here's just a picture of the cover and some of the pages if you click on my blog link you can see all the pages.



Class/Challenge: Potions
SPEW: N/A
House: Gryffindor!
Project Page Link: Project Life Catch Up: April 14 - 28!
Brief Description: As you can probably tell by a lot of my entries, on of my more recent crafting endeavors is Project Life scrapbooking. I craft them as something true to me: my thoughts, my memories, my family's life. I may not put the less-than-perfect moments up front and center but I do try to include them in my journaling which is sometimes tucked away behind a card.
Project Picture: Close up pictures can be found by clicking on my blog link.


Umm...before I go I just wanted to say - Can you believe Luna just turned two this past week?! I remember coming on HPC posting that I had her and now it's two years later! Time needs to slow down!

It's the end of the semester....that means we're supposed to do a massive dump of all the assignments we haven't turned in, right? Well, here's my obligatory post to do just that. Lol. Uh...hope you like Project Life 'cause that's all I've really managed to do lately and I'm even behind on that. Haha. Such is life! I'm definitely going to try to be more active this upcoming semester!

Class: Apparation
House: Grrrrrrryffindor!
Project Name: Yosemite Project Life Pages!
Project Page Link: You can see more detailed pictures/read more here at my blog.
Brief Description: Yes I realized that you are supposed to craft something to a place you haven't been buuuut Yosemite is a HUGE place, with more to see than just the valley. Scrapbooking our trip helped me to focus on getting back (we got a season pass) so we can explore other parts of Yosemite, not just Yosemite Valley.
Project Picture:


Class: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Grrrrrrryffindor!
Project Name: First April Project Life Page
Project Page Link: You can see more detailed pictures/read more here at my blog.
Brief Description: Like the Fwooper, this Project Life page is FULL of patterns and colors. Perfect to blend in with the rest of my pictures.
Project Picture:


Class: Charms
House: Grrrrrrryffindor!
Project Name: Iron On Quote Bag
Project Page Link: None
Brief Description: Yes, this bag may look familiar. I've made one before but I assure you that it's a different one. My SIL liked the first one so much she asked that I make her one for her birthday. Two techniques involved - 1. getting the *darn* Silhouette to cut properly and not waste iron on material, 2. Ironing it on properly without ruining the whole thing. Success! I think I still need practice at all of this. Lol.
Project Picture:


Class: Divination
House: Grrrrrrryffindor!
Project Name: Birthday Card
Project Page Link: None
Brief Description: Imagine my surprise when I looked into the stars and realized that they were aligned in such a way that it had appeared to be April! I checked my calendar and GASP! It's indeed April! (Humor me...I'm turning this in late. Lol.) If it's April it must mean that my SIL's birthday has passed! Yep. It has. To go along with the bag I made her I also crafted this birthday card (It says "happy late birthday" inside.) This card was brought into existence based on what I've seen in the stars, making it perfect for my Divination homework.
Project Picture:


Class: History of Magic
House: Grrrrrrryffindor!
Project Name: Easter Cards
Project Page Link: None
Brief Description: One historical use of flowers is for decoration and honor which is why my daughter and I included flowers while making our Easter cards for the family. (There were originally 8 cards but I had already closed and addressed envelopes on the others before I remembered to take a picture.) Yes, I used a helper on my HoM homework, but sometimes working with a toddler makes it just that much harder. Lol.
Project Picture:


Class: Muggle Studies
House: Grrrrrrryffindor!
Project Name: Craft Supplies
Project Page Link: None
Brief Description: This area isn't so much messy as it is in need of organization. You can't tell much from the picture but I went through and organized all the little boxes and containers. I put alot of things into grabbag piles. I organized my whole scrapbook cart. Perfect and ready for crafting when I was done! It's hard to keep craft supplies in control in an apartment. You have to tuck them in everywhere when you can't have a real dedicated portion of the house. This is one of 3 main areas I have craft supplies stored.
Project Picture:


Class: Potions
House: Grrrrrrryffindor!
Project Name: Second April Project Life Page
Project Page Link: You can see more detailed pictures/read more here at my blog.
Brief Description: It may look like a regular project life page...but WAIT! What's that? Secret hidden flaps?! Muahuahuahuahua!
Project Picture:



Class: May Challenge
House: Grrrrrrryffindor!
Project Name: Big Trees Project Life Page
Project Page Link: You can see more detailed pictures/read more here at my blog.
Brief Description: Yea, yea...you're probably all sick of all these Project Life pages but it seems to be the only crafting I've really had time to do lately...and I'm struggling to even get them done. So yes, professor, since Project Life is always a WIP, please accept my pages from our trip to Big Trees State Park as my May detention submission. (More pics in blog link!)

Summer Semester 2014: Muggle Studies

Completed Homework: Wizards and Muggles alike both enjoy keeping photographs to record memories but have you seen those muggle photographs? They don't even move! Since summer is a time for exploring and traveling and making memories we will be studying the Muggle craft of Photography. Craft something that includes a photograph you have taken or a photograph that has you in it! Not your style? Pick one of your favorite photographs and study its light and form...craft something inspired by this photograph but be sure to include the photograph for reference when turning in your homework.

SummerSemester 2014: History of Magic
"Time for History of Magic? Good, I've been needing a nap."
    An unidentified Hogwarts student

Completed Homework:Before the installation of wizarding schools for young witches and wizards, each wizarding family tended to have its own "trade." Take the Ollivanders for example...their high level of wandmaking skill is credited to learning the craft from their elders, generation after generation. Each generation building upon the knowledge of those before them. This summer craft something inspired by something you have learned from your own elders or family members. Did you learn to knit from your mother or aunt? Knit some coasters in honor of this special bond! Did your father instill a love for cooking? Make one of the first recipes he taught you!

Hey there fellow HPCers! Gryffindor Tower, Muggle Studies Classroom, and History of Magic Classroom are now all updated! I've done a lot of thinking and sadly, I won't be commenting on everything/everyone this semester. I'll still be here lurking about so don't you worry...real life is just taking up a lot of time lately. (And I started my blog up again and that takes up a lot of internet time. Lol.) I will make one comment for now, though:

Acadian Driftwood
- Your wallets are amazing!!! I am in love with the yellow/gray ones. (The green ones too!)

Now for some homework to turn in!

Project Name: Harriet's House!

Brief Description: We recently got a new rat - Harriet! I made her a little cozy house. I made the pattern up as I went a long and decided to study a bit of Arithmancy by starting off with a circle of EIGHT stitches then went from there. Smiley

Completed Homework: Isnt it amazing how Muggles survive and live without magic? This semester well be studying the annual Muggle tradition of Springtime Cleaning! Muggles dont have spells and charms to whip their houses into shape. Sometimes they have to spend HOURS getting household things done. This semesters assignment is not quite a crafty lesson, but its still an important one. To learn some respect for how hard Muggles really work, your assignment will be to take an area of your house (or yard!) and give it a good deep cleanwithout any magic. To receive full credit for this class you must take a before and after picture so we can see just how much work you did. Happy Cleaning!

Spring Semester 2014: History of Magic
"Time for History of Magic? Good, I've been needing a nap."
    An unidentified Hogwarts student

Completed Homework: For thousands of years flowers have been used in many different kinds of spells and magical endeavors.  Craft something inspired by the historical, magic uses of popular flowers.  For example, did you know the daffodil is associated with love and fertility? You could create a baby item, an item for a loved one, or something bright, cheery, and yellow like a daffodil.  Or take influence from a Narcissus flower: named for a Greek figure, the Narcissus helps promote polarity and harmony. Its calming vibrations bring about tranquility and inner peace so you could create something that brings a sense of calm to your household or garden.
