Inselaeffchen The owls are adorable and the cozy and cushion cover turned out fantastic! The cards look great and the towel is awesome! And the little gnome is so cute!
bunny1kenobi It's absolutely lovely, the mat fits perfectly with it, and what a great way to remember him by!

Tanath The spinach bites look delicious and the bracelets are adorable!
Smeddley I like the dishcloth pattern! The dream catcher looks great and I love that it's all recycled materials! The cookies look so yummy and that's a cute story not shallow!

I will comment on everything later but I wanted to get this last project posted.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Eevee ATCs
Brief Description: I realized that little Eevee has 8 evolutions he can be evolved into. So I made 8 ATCs depicting most of these evolutions (I did an actual Eevee instead of a Slyveon).

And also, team Textbook is just plain awesome... Smiley

So, we had a big thunderstorm earlier and it brought a hailstorm with it. Once I checked that there wasn't a tornado threat, I went back to my project (which will sort of fall under the "home decorating" theme). If the stores were still open, I'd finish it tonight. Instead, I'll have to tackle it some more tomorrow... and then maybe finish up that other pesky project...

Yes we kinda are. And I joined because it is the closest to techy out of all of them and as a computer programmer, it's kinda a big part of me. Cheesy

I miss a good thunderstorm, I don't get them any more where I live. Sad

BadWolf314, you have been busy! What a great Lion King card! Did you hand cut it? It's beautiful! And, I love both of your t-shirts. Nice job on your crochet squares, too. Your shrine is great- clever way to combine both themes! Your Snitch necklace came out great, and I like the bead for the "golden" part (I had a lot of trouble finding a good bead to use to make mine). I'm a bit jealous that you have the space for some raised beds in your yard- I hope you have a good harvest!  That cutting board is AMAZING!!! I thought it was painted until I popped over to the post- I can't believe that you cut and glued all of those pieces together! Your "Hangry" towel is a riot... I might have to steal that idea Smiley Your necktie is also well done (I really, really need to start watching Dr. Who!). Your Hermione ATC is adorable and I love her scarf! Your Zeus ATC is also really neat- is the whole thing collaged, or is part of it painted? I don't know much about Magic, but those Modded Lands are neat (I've seen the symbols around individually, but they look neat as a collection!).

Aw shucks, thank you! I used my silhouette to cut out the Lion King card, I spent most of that day though putting together the pattern for it. Definitely steal the hangry towel idea and yes, you really, really need to watch Doctor Who!!! And the Zeus ATC is just collaged, painting is just too challenging sometimes.

Holy project dump, batman!! Wow!!  You did some awesome stuff, there!  The Tardis cutting board is mind-blowing... just gorgeous! I also really like your MTG shirt.  I'd like to make some like that for my hubby, but I have no idea which mana I'd use... he doesn't seem to have a particular favorite mana, just favorite decks.  You know, the ones that virtually ALWAYS completely annihilate his opponents.... Roll Eyes  The modded lands are really cool, too. 

Well, those are the most fun decks to play! Grin

Smeddley The dreamcatcher and needlebook both look awesome! I really love the fabric you used for the needlebook! Yay for finishing the dishcloth! And I am in LOVE with your pi mug rugs and the apron!!! The colors are lovely and it's just the perfect amount of nerdiness!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Allons - Y! Tie
Brief Description: One day Im hoping to travel to London and find a mysterious man with a blue box. Until then Ill just have to be content watching his travels on my TV.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Magic Shirts
Brief Description: Ive seen people make some really cool shirts using bleach and I thought Id give it a try. Unfortunately the bleach didnt even make a difference in the green shirt and bleed through my pattern on my blue one I was sad. But I decided to try and save them with a little bit of fabric paint and I love how they turned out especially the blue one.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Defence Against the Dark Arts
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: TARDIS Cutting Board
Project Link: More Pictures!
Brief Description: While staying at my husbands Aunts house for a weekend trip, I met his cousin (who had been out of the country for a while) and her future husband for the first time. They noticed my Doctor Who socks and we immediately bonded over our love for said show. I decided that I would make them an awesome Doctor Who related gift for their wedding and this beauty was the result! Im going to have to make myself one because Im sad to see it go!
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Zeus ATC
Brief Description: As I was gazing up at the sky I saw a cloud shaped like an  eagle. According to Greek mythology, the symbol of Zeus is an eagle, so to honor him I made him into an ATC.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flying
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Snitch Necklace
Brief Description: Ive been so wrapped up in life lately that I havent had much time for my class work let alone Quidditch! So for this project I took some inspiration from the snitch Id been missing and made it into a necklace. Now I can always have it close regardless of how busy I am.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Doctor Who Shirt
Brief Description: I tend to be more inspired and work best when Im in comfortable clothing that is meaningful to me. So I created this shirt of one of my favorite Doctor Who quotes. Now I can let my mind find the inspiration it needs while being comfortable and not having to worry about accidently getting paint on my shirt.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: You wont like me when Im Hangry
Brief Description: I took my inspiration from the Narcissus flower and crafted something to help me to remember to be calm. When I get hungry Im usually not a happy person, and so I made this towel to hang in the kitchen to remind me to laugh at my ridiculousness.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: My Side of the Bed
Brief Description: I have a tendency to leave very specific and very organized piles in certain places. My side of the bed tends to end up with a lot of these piles and they sometimes get smushed together. So I spent sometime cleaning and putting away things on the floor and in my drawers and under the bed. So now I can actually find the things Im looking for instead of pile hunting.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Study of Ancient Runes
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Garden Bed
Brief Description: Spring is a time of new beginnings and its the perfect opportunity to plant a garden. Last year we only had three boxes and were able to get quite a few things but we wanted a little more room so we good grow some strawberries! So my husband helped me build this new planter box. And then we had to spend a good two days shoveling dirt and soil into it. (The car ride home, stuck in traffic in some very hot weather with our bags of soil and steer manure was not pleasant!) Now we have some strawberries planted and a few have started growing fruits (they are delicious!)
Project Picture:



Class/Challenge/House Pride: House Unity
House: Ravenclaw
SPEW: Afghans for Pine Ridge
Project Name: PRR Square
Brief Description: I made this square in Hufflepuff yellow.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Det: March
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Modded Land Cards
Brief Description: Ive had this idea pinned on my to craft pinterest board for quite some time and I finally just sat and did it. I used the mana cards from MTG and painted them all black except for the mana symbol over the art. I love how they turned out and eventually Ill make enough to have a full play set of them in one of my decks.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Det: April
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Hulk Alter
Brief Description: Recently Ive been playing a lot more magic and I found this shabby sad card called Rotted Hulk that needed a new coat of paint and a little more personalization.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Det: May
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Hermione ATC
Brief Description: Again, this has been pinned for quite sometime. It turned out very different from what I originally thought but Im happy with the results.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bean: Strawberry
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Red Mana Shirt
Brief Description: Since there arent quite enough strawberries in the garden yet to make anything delicious out of them, I found this red shirt and made it a little more me. I used my cutting machine to cut a pattern out of freezer paper and then used some bleach spray. And it worked perfectly this time!
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: DA: Department of Mysteries
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Lion King Card
Brief Description: I have a really good friend who suffers from a lot of health related problems. Weve both moved away and so I dont get to see her very often at all. Weve always loved watching movies together especially Disney ones. So I made her this card based on the Lion King. I think itll definitely brighten her day when I send it to her.
