~COMPLETED OWL~
OWL Subject & Option: Herbology
House: Slytherin
Project Name:Mandrake Hoopla
Project Page Link (if available): None (yet)
Brief Description: I made a mandrake hoopla for my partner in the Back to Hogwarts 4 swap. I made this hoop using a new technique, stumpwork embroidery. The body is made of brown split stitches, the legs were stitched on a wire frame on another pice of fabric using satin stitch, the leaves were stitched on another piece of fabric using the leaf stitch and fly stitch. I had tons of fun trying out this technique!

~NEWT PROPOSAL~
NEWT Subject: Divination
House: Slytherin
Project Name: So you have chosen to study divination....
Brief Description: I would like to make myself a book detailing different methods of divination including tarot; cartomancy with a deck of plain playing cards; the elder futhark runes; the celtic ogham runes; scrying with fire using wax, flame, and smoke; scrying with water using the wax on water method, and water gazing; scrying with a mirror; scrying with crystals; scrying with tea leaves; dowsing with a wooden rod; dowsing with a pendulum; palmistry; basic astrology; numerology; basic dream interpretation (excluding a dream dictionary); and ornithomancy. Once I have finished research on all of the methods of divination I will write them out with my quill using walnut ink on small pieces of paper that will be collaged onto paper that is covered in crayon, water color, earth, and other mediums. So far I have made the covers with end papers (the last time I read the Harry Potter series I pulled out the quotes relating to divination and prophecy and wrote them on little slips of paper. So far I have finished the research for tarot and cartomancy using playing cards, and am working on the research for the futhark runes.
Pictures of progress so far:
   
The pictures are of the front cover, the front endpapers, the back cover, and the back endpapers.
The tarot card on the front cover is the tower.

So much amazing stuff! In honor of this Advanced Studies Friday, I have a question (finished my OWL last week but my swap partner hasn't opened yet so it hasn't been turned in) can I (if I write up a proposal and everything) use a project that I have already started as a NEWT if it has at least a month's worth of work left on it?

Everything is so awesome! I love the howler arm warmers and the hand of glory and and.... well everything! also I RECEIVED TODAY! *happy dance* I was so very very happy to come home and find my package waiting for me!

The first thing I saw was a hoopla

Then some awesome dishcloths (yes I took most of the pictures with the help of my typewriter)

Then I saw a cauldron perfect for mixing potions

Inside the cauldron, I found all sorts of awesome stuff
like these bottles for potions with chalkboard labels and some premixed potions, chalk and faerie dust There was also this little bird house, which I will likely expand into the Burrow or Hogwarts
and my most favorite thing: this little baby dragon The note around his neck says "I found a baby dragon on my way to the post office. I have no room in my home for him, so I hope you can take care of him for me.  Smiley" I love hime very much and ZombriNation can trust that I will care for him well. Thanks so much ZombriNation!

Merlin's Beard! I forgot to add a picture of something! This necklace is fantastic and so snake-like!

And a side note, I was telling some friends about this swap and my selection of Slytherin as my house and they thought that I wasn't a Slytherin but a Ravenclaw... and when asked why that was they said "Slytherins are bad"....

(House: SLYTHERIN, Class: Potions or DADA, Shop: Slug and Jiggers Apothecary)

I have finished my herbology OWL, though I will not be turning it in until my partner from the Back to Hogwarts swap receives it.

pinkleo both of those projects sound positively wondrous.
Mistress Jennie congrats on you progress so far.

All of the packages so far have been amazing! I love the Shrieking Shack music globe! I'm starting to have a touch of swap anxiety....

How can we respond to posts without quoting, and is there a way to quote only part of a message and not all (like for, example, the photos of projects?).
I have noticed that most people in this thread will just address comments to the user (assuming, I suppose that the user will remember the items they have posted). For example,

jellybean89~ The color of that bow is gorgeous! I bet your cat looks sophisticated wearing it.
pinkleo~ YOur herbology OWL is wonderful. I hope it provides someone with comfort. Fizzy the cat is adorable!
vincentvanbuck~ Your ATC is very cute.
Magpirate~ That piggy bank is fantastic! I love that you can write your savings goal on the envelope. That is such a good idea.

BadWolf314~ That Hulk stamp is wonderful! I have been wondering, what does one use to carve lasting stamps? I have done the potato route but those aren't meant to last and after seeing all of the wonderful hand-carved stamps here I really want to try my hand at stamp carving.
Inselaeffchen~ I'm not a Whovian (though I have been told that I would enjoy the show), but I think that washcloth looks great!
WistleFish~ I positively LOVE the Bashful Hat!

I have finally started school at a muggle school called a "Community College" as a part of my muggle studies project, and so I think that from now on I will be checking in with Hogwarts on Fridays (until they give me an extended break, that is). This will, I believe allow me to get the most out of this multi-year field study project.  I am still hard at work on my Herbology OWlL (and am almost done with the main part it), and have been working on it on the muggle bus to and from the "Community College" (I can't Portkey, Apparate, or Floo to a muggle school, obviously, and I don't yet know how to drive)

Oh, I forgot to add that this OWL is talking a little longer than I expected (I expected to be almost done now) due to delays in starting after I had the design drawn up, it should still take the required amount of time (roughly) in spite of the delays .
