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.
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 I originally made it to sell, but I love it too much, LOL!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 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 Name: Keep-it-together face pads
Project Description: This little crocheted bag brings order to an otherwise chaotic spread of crocheted face pads.
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.
Class: History of Magic
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.
and a closer look at a few of the pieces:
and finally. . .
Challenge: Bertie Bott's Dog Food
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 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.
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.
and the lavender jar:
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. :/
