CONGRATULATIONS Mistress Jennie on WOTW, and THANK YOU for all your hard work!

Inselaeffchen The Little Yellow Duck site you posted is so cool.  What a great idea!

Pottermouth What a fun self-portrait!  I love love LOVE the panic sign! Cheesy

Margarone Oh, those cookies look delicious!

Noodle-bug What a clever idea for the colour run!  The pictures are great! Cheesy

Calliemae The bracelets are awesome!  And the boots are so cute.  Love the stripes! Smiley

Whistlefish  That is a gorgeous blanket!  And I love your scrapbooking projects.  I just broke my stuff out and did a couple of pages yesterday.  I seem to go in spurts, but I'd like to get on the Project Life bandwagon.  I think it's such a cool idea.

I have neglected my NEWT for a long time, but yesterday I did make some progress (just a little!) I did some blurring of names for privacy's sake.

And just for fun, here's what happened the 1st time I tried to take the picture.

Wow!  That Potterish trunk is AMAZING!!!

Midkiffsjoy Your bed and bedding for Bluet are fantastic!  That mattress is to die for!  Wow!!

J_Kieviet That sounds like an excellent proposal!  Can't wait to see how it turns out!  And WELCOME TO HUFFLEPUFF!!!!

OK, I'm finally turning in a bunch of things I've been working on since Summer term started. Smiley

Class: Alchemy
S.P.E.W: n/a
Project Name: Tea-time Tin
Project Description: I was doodling during class when I was supposed to be taking notes, and somehow tin (the element) became tin (the kind you put things in.)  At least there is also a bit of water represented here (in the tea.)  This started life as a Trader Joe's mint tin, and is now a fun little thing for me to keep my bits and bobs organised.  (Probably more stitch markers!)  I started with yellow daisy paper, added some washi tape and some lovely, transparent Japanese photo flake "stickers" (not actually sticky) - or "PHOTRIP." I also added some deco pearl cabochons, and then a swirl of silicone "whipped cream" and some air-dry clay fruits, mint leaf, and a doughnut.  I originally made it to sell, but I love it too much, LOL!
Project Pic:

Class: Arithmancy
S.P.E.W: n/a
Project Name: Arithmagnetic!
Project Description: A group of 9 strawberry cream pies - luscious strawberry pudding fills light-as-air crusts and is topped with a rich whipped cream swirl!  Sparkling accents of deco pearl, microbeads and glitter finish off these tasty pies!  These are actually mini, scented, non-edible magnets. ^_^
Project Pic:

Class: Astronomy
S.P.E.W: n/a
Project Name: Keep-it-together face pads
Project Description: This little crocheted bag brings order to an otherwise chaotic spread of crocheted face pads.
Project Pic:

Class: Charms
S.P.E.W: n/a
Project Name: Thank You Cutie-Pie!
Project Description: My mom lives in a Senior housing complex and the woman who does the administrative work is a truly lovely person.  She often brings her daughter along, who is super sweet and loves to visit my mom's cat, Pasha.  They often bring Pasha treats of catnip and toys, and it really makes me happy to know that they're there since I'm so far away.  This little pie necklace is just a small thank-you for the girlie.  It also has really sparkly microbeads that don't show up in the pic. Smiley
Project Pic:

Class: History of Magic
S.P.E.W: n/a
Project Name: Decoden Cabochon Bonanaza!
Project Description: I got my love of miniatures from my mom, as well as my make-it-yourself attitude.  When I was little, my sis and I had a dollhouse made from a cardboard box, and it was furnished with a lamp made from a marble with a toothpaste cap shade, little balsa-wood beds and dressers, crocheted rugs, and the like.  I've always adored miniatures - both making and buying them! ^_^  Decoden fits in with my mini obsession because I get to use lots of adorable little foods etc.  I decided to make a bunch of my own as well, and it is SO MUCH FUN!  These are made with different air-dry clays - Mostly Model Magic and Delight.  The foods are moulded from little push moulds I made myself from existing cabochons and Oyumaru plastic clay.  (How to do this will probably be my DADA class. Smiley  )  
Project Pic:

and a closer look at a few of the pieces:

and finally. . .

Challenge: Bertie Bott's Dog Food
S.P.E.W: n/a
Project Name: Catnip Tyrant Series 1
Project Description:I've been toying with the idea of making a series of catnip despots for my kitties to terrorise, and I finally started.  Of course, one must begin with Hitler.  I'm considering adding Mao, Stalin, and maybe Kim Jong-Il. . . ^_^  So far I've seen him being attacked by at least one of the cats, and right now he's sulking under the cat tree, having been dragged there against his will.
Project Pic:

Class: Flying
S.P.E.W: n/a
Project Name: Hovering Sandwich Biscuit
Project Description: In the spirit of the hovering cupcakes intended for Crabbe and Goyle, here's another tasty treat that will dangle in mid-air.  To make the Muggles less suspicious, it will be suspended from a backpack zipper.  This delightful treat is actually made from make-up sponges, acrylic paint, silicone, air-dry clay, microbeads and glitter.

Class: Divination
S.P.E.W: n/a
Project Name: Summer Altar
Project Description: My Summer altar is not an obvious altar to those who are unfamiliar with the Craft.  I maintain it in the main entryway and use it as a seasonal display and altar.  This one includes amethyst, and a big bunch of homegrown lavender that I just harvested.  I "prettied-up" a glass jar (from furikake - Japanese rice seasoning) and put a bunch of my lavender in it.  Both amethyst and lavender are known for their protection properties, among other things, and the entryway is a great place for such a ward.
Project Pics:

The table:

and the lavender jar:

Class: Potions
S.P.E.W: n/a
Project Name: 3 Sweet Treats
Project Description: These are a blend of truth and lies.  Most of us are aware that the cake is a lie, and this project bears out that truth, because these cakes are definitely not edible!  The truth is, though, that they were delightfully fun to create!  Sorry they're not all in focus. :/

Omigosh that Narnia wardorbe!!! O_O  Soooooo cool! 

OK, I'm really getting the Huffle room updated now!  Also, Huffles, if I don't make a house announcement by Friday, please get on my case!  I have somehting in the works. Smiley

Wow!  This semester has spawned a TON of awesome projects!  I'm so inspired!  I actually HAVE been crafting, but have been too busy to take pics.  Today is another crazy day, but should slow down later on, so between today and tomorrow I'll be getting the Huffle Party Room caught up.


Maybe your presence will finally cheer up Dr. Horrible! Cheesy

I have a Quidditch question.  Can we support 1 team in each playoff - so Bulgaria or Japan AND US or Brazil, or do we have to pick only one?
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: HP Craftalong ~Summer Semester 2014~ *JOIN ANYTIME* on: June 12, 2014 05:39:14 AM
Samash90 Your headboard is AMAZING!  Wow!

ErinAquahearts I love all the colour in your cupcake necklaces.  They're so cheery and lovely!  And your paint chip drawings are so cool!  I really like how the Mickey bracelet and necklace came out, too.  It'scool how it's not immediately obvious that they're all Mickey heads. Smiley  And OMG that lapis lazuli necklace is FAB!  I bet it was a big hit! Smiley

Technicolor Aquahearts I love all your ATCs!  And I think it's fantastic that you're introducing the kids to them now, and helping them to understand that art can be a thing for everyday life, not just school. Cheesy

Pottermouth Your balloon boy is so impressive!  Wow!  And your OWLs are so squuuueeeeeeeee-worthy! Cheesy  And holy cow!  That bug twinchie is a jaw-dropper.  SO COOL!!

Noodle-bug Your quilt block is great!  And the Elemental Elephants blanket is AWESOME!  I LOVE it!  I'm always inspired by your hexies.  Did you say you make your own paper pieces, or buy them?  I love knitting hexies, but I really think I'm going to try some paper-pieced ones, too.  Smiley  I think your origami activity-picker is a great idea!  Sometimes it's so surprising o have free time that we dither about what to do, and then the time is gone. :p  Your postcard turned out just lovely!  What a great tribute to memories of time with your Grandma. Smiley

Inselaffchen Oh my!  All that scanning sounds like tedious work.  Kudos to your for undertaking such a big project!  I have a ton of slides that need scanning.  I'm not looking forward to it, LOL!  That's a great pic of you as a wee little thing! Cheesy

Magpirate I adore those tiny books!  I know what you mean about crafting something and then not knowing what to do with it. :/  Maybe the books need more tiny things to go with them. . . ^_^  (I love making minis!)

FiberAlchemist Wow!  Your crumpets and sausage-rolls have me drooling and completely willing to go into a gluten-induced coma, LOL!  I think I'll experiment with a new GF flour blend I got and see what I can do!  So inspiring!

Naantje  All your tree-inspired jewellery is gorgeous!  I bet the recipients are going to be delighted! Smiley

Margaron  I love the bracelets you made!  The patterns and colours are beautiful!

I've been making crafty things, but still need to figure out what classes they fit, LOL!

@Moonflame:  You cannot earn House Points for two different Classes/Challenges with only one project.  You can either pick CoMC OR House Pride to earn the 15 House Points, and can do another project to cover the other prompt.  Info is in the first post of the Craftalong under the heading "House Point Guidelines".  Cheers.

OK, thank you!  Some of that stuff just won't stick in my head.  Tongue  I'll go with CoMC for that one, then.

Noodle-bug Lol!  I wish I could earn badges for all kinds of things.  I think they'd be a great incentive. ^_^

VincentvanBuck  Bummer about the swing and miss chicken. Sad  It sure looks tasty!  Here's a super-simple crockpot recipe we like:

Spray the slow cooker and put in boneless, skinless chicken breasts (and/or Quorn or tofu), shake about 2 big tablespoons of taco seasoning over it, pour 1/4 c water over that, dump a whole tub of fresh salsa over that, slap on the lid and press go!  It takes about 3-4 hrs on high or 5-6 on low.  Even my super-picky husband likes it!  It's great with plain rice, Spanish rice, or Cilantro Lime rice. Cheesy  

You did a fantastic job on your craft room!  Wowza!  I'm still working on mine. :/

Magpirate Wow!  I love your circular Gallifreyan projects (esp that Huffle-flavoured T shirt! Wink  )  How cool!  Now I want to learn more!

Calliemae Your frog is adorable.  I think it's so sweet of you to make it for your sister. Smiley  He's SO cute! Smiley

I finally started and finished a penguin jumper!  My model is a bit on the smallish side, so I turned down the neck.  

Class: Care of Magical Creatures
S.P.E.W. Yes! Smiley  Although I *just* learned that the jumper is unlikely to be used on an actual penguin ( Sad  ) it will likely be used to dress a mascot, which will then be sold to raise more money for the penguin rescue fund. Smiley  So though it may not directly protect a penguin, it still indirectly contributes to their protection. Smiley
House: Hufflepuff
