Challenge: floo--- Madam Malkins
House: Slytherin
Project name: garden box squirrel guards
Project description: we have some garden boxes that we have tried to use several times since we bought them. But every time we plant seedlings or anything for that matter the stupid (but cute) little squirrels dig everything up. I have tried pest deterrent and all of the natural remedies I can find. But nothing stops them from thinking those boxes are the best place to store acorns and the occasional pecan. So I bought some wire rabbit mesh and fashioned some perfectly fitting tops.


Class: SoAR
House: Slytherin
Project name: Forest Guardian at Watch
Project description: I have been trying to work on my NEWT with very little success. I just am to unsure how I wanted the Forest Guardian that leads Teddy into the Forest of Lost Souls to look. So I took some time to make a trial painting of him. So this is the Forest Guardian on matboard with acrylic paint.

And then some fly by posting.

Challenge: detention--April
House: Slytherin
Project name: a new night stand
Project description: I rearranged my room recently and now I needed a bedside table. I wanted something small, cheap, and cute. After much shopping I found nothing that I wanted. Around my birthday (in March) I was driving home and one of the families in my neighbor hood had placed an outdoor metal table out on the street (they moved) so I snagged that sucker before anyone else could. It was small. Cute. And free! But it was an ugly color. After much sanding to get rid of the rust I spray painted it purple! It's so perfect now. Mmmmm.....now I just wish my bed frame matched.......

Because Noodle-bug has received her package I am going to assume that the other package for J_Kieviet arrived safely as well.  I am excited to be able to share these projects!

Class: Muggle Studies
SPEW: NA
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Forest Growing Totoro
Project Description: Noodle -bug won one of my class participation prizes from last semester. She chose Totoro as the theme for her painting, asking for him to be included with his umbrella. I had a great time making this watercolor because My Neighbor Totoro is one of my favorite movies!


Class: Potions
SPEW: NA
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Unicorn Sock Creature
Project Description: Another one of my class participation prizes went to J_Kieviet (forgive me if I am misspelling your name.) Based on what she likes and one of her favorite creatures I made a little Unicorn from socks, felt, ribbon, and buttons. It was interesting using both sock and felt in the same project. They do NOT see up the same way or have the same amount of stretch! (I went with the one item/two materials direction.)

I did some painting last night. Experimenting with some new stuff. I finished a notebook and cut off the front and back covers to use as painting surfaces. I used gesso on them and then used watercolors. I didn't really like the process so I probably won't do it again. But I do like the little paintings that I ended up with.

Class: charms
House: Slytherin
Project name: Glimpse of Trees
Project Description: one panel of two. This is one of the covers that I gessoed and painted. I really enjoyed "growing" these trees and shrubbery.


Class: Detention-- March (wip)
House: Slytherin
Project name: Landing in the Cove at Sunset
Project Description: This is the second panel of two. The second cover became this sweet little scene. I really love how the water turned out and can't wait to try out those colors on larger paintings. The covers were on my to do list for over a week before I got to them. And I've had this painting process tagged as somethings to try for quite a while.

Class: Transfiguration
House: Slytherin
Project name: Shadow-bottomed sock creature
Project description: I had left over sock from making Penelope and decided to see what I could make with it. I combined the sock bits into this creature. Keeping with a black and white theme I gave it checkered ribbon hair, button eyes, and a felt mouth. Looks like it's singing. Smiley

7  Arkansas Razorback Baby Hats in Crochet: Completed Projects by ErinAquaheart on: April 03, 2016 07:27:26 PM
My partner's cousin is having her first baby, a boy, in May.  She is a huge Arkansas Razorback Football fan and I knew she would love to dress her little boy as a little razorback hog during the coming football season.  So I made her two hats.  One for him when he's newborn (0-3month sized) and one for football season (6-9 month sized)

I found a pattern that I liked here and then just altered as I needed to.  I also added a little tail to each hat.

0-3 month hat


6-9 month hat


back of one of the hats


bonus--some little booties

Homework time!

Class: Apparition
SPEW: NA
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Razorback Hog hat (6-9 months size)
Project Link: I used this pattern as a jumping off point
Project Description: TechnicolorAquahearts cousin is having her first baby in May.  She is a huge Arkansas Razorback (football team) fan. So I decided to make her little baby a hat to wear when football season starts! The team's colors are red, white, and black. He even has a little tail in the back. (I made a 0-3 month size hat as well...it is so similar.)  It definitely made me feel very good when she opened her present and LOVED it!


Class: CoMC
SPEW: NA
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Green Candy Barrette
Project Description: I made this little candy to wear on St. Patrick's Day, because I have a deplorable lack of green in my wardrobe! He turned out so cute! I'm going to love wearing it around all the time.


Class: DADA
SPEW: NA
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Baby Booties (Red,white,black)
Project Description: When I started making hats for Loren's new baby, River, I wanted to make baby booties to go with the cute hat.  But I was afraid to do them.  Every time I have tried to make baby booties I always end up with two VERY different sized shoes.  One will be very small and the other very large.  I took the plunge and tried again even though I felt like it would never work out.  I guess I have come far in my crochet skills because I finished the second booty and it was exactly the same size as the first one I made.  I am feeling like I could do more complicated shoes now!  crocheted converse here I come!


Challenge: Floo-- Nursery
SPEW: NA
House: Slytherin
Project Name: A Razorback Hat for River
Project Description: This is the first hat I made for Baby River.  This one is 0-3 months, so he may be able to wear this one home from the hospital.  I gave this one fuzzier hair and a slightly smaller nose. It also has a tail in the back.


(and the back of one of the hats...so you can see the tail!)

Class: Arithmancy
Iron Chef Hogwarts: Tofu
SPEW: NA
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Crispy Baked Tofu with Honey-Sesame Glaze
Project Link: Recipe Here >>>>YUM
Project Description: Because I am the only vegetarian in the family I really do have to bring my own dishes to family gatherings, like Easter.  This holiday I decided to make this dish because I already had every thing that I needed already at home.  (Bonus--no one else wanted to try this! So I got it all to myself. They missed out! This was amazing!) I used frozen brussels sprouts instead of fresh and I substituted agave nectar for the honey (making this dish vegan!), and I didn't have sesame seeds so I just had to do without the actual seeds but I did have sesame oil.


Class: History of Magic
SPEW: NA
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Baby Blanket for Baby River
Project Description: My cousin-in-law is having her first baby at the beginning of May (he's due on  Mother's Day!)  I made him a baby blanket to snuggle.  It's just a simple granny square blanket that is about 40 inches square.  I'm hoping that it helps him take many naps since it is so soft and cuddly!  Cheesy

I made an excellent tofu dish for Easter! (Being the only vegetarian requires me to be the person bringing my own food) I'll be posting it later. Smiley



FOR CARE OF MAGICAL CREATURES: If you have looked at the CoMC classroom you have seen that there is extra credit available under the Fun Facts section. I have decided to give away an older painting of mine for this class at the end of the semester!

This is the extra credit prize:


All you have to do is participate in the Care of Magical Creatures class to qualify for the drawing. Doing extra credits (by applying other class/challenge prompts to the fun fact) will give you an extra "entry" into the drawing pool! Good luck this semester.

(I will be updating the classroom tonight with all this info)
