That monster book of monsters is fab! Is that rabbit skin? And I love how the inside is covered with the H.P. pictures!

I used various scraps of fur for the Monster Book of Monsters, a mix of fox, coyote, rabbit, beaver, and other furs. The pictures on the inside are the pictures from the beginnings of the chapters of PoA. I started with one of my mother's old Nursing textbooks.

That is really cool! Do you find all of your skins, etc. online? Or are you guys able to get your own? We have a few small ones but they were from years and YEARS ago at a some Rendezvous. I haven't seen anything since.

I got the fur scraps from a vendor on etsy here. I met her at FaerieCon West and purchased a fox tail from her. I really respect her work and the respectful way she treats hide. She usually only sells small scraps so when I need larger pieces of fur I go to thrift shops to look for old fur coats. I will be able to get my own rabbit skins once we cull our rabbits (we raise meat rabbits), and I learn how to home tan.

~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!
Project Picture:


~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....
