21  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Harry Potter Holiday 5 (Signups CLOSED; Sendouts Dec. 4) on: November 21, 2016 07:13:19 AM
99% done.  Need one small supply to finish off the last item completely, then I can send.

Saw Beasts on Friday.  Told my girls it was going to be date night for me and DH to it and they didn't even buy my teasing for a minute.  Oldest was like "no way mother.  Roll Eyes  When are we -all- going?"  She was a Potter fan before I was.  3D was fun, but didn't really make it any better.  3D was great for us in that 2D was packed and 3D had less than 20 people though.  Fun movie.  I love magic.

Mine is Tropicana Cabana by Benjamin Moore.

This one is Bermuda Bay.  I got it because it was a premixed color at the big box mart and I didn't want to wait around for someone to mix colors.  LOL

I have to say, I'm super jealous you have a sink in your craftroom.

The sink is so nice and convenient!  I love having it there.  Very easy to wash brushes or messy hands!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flying
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Craftroom Clean/Redo
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=450746.msg5417723#msg5417723
Brief Description: Craftroom needed a good solid cleaning.  Seems like it's easy to get messy with kids that think "oh!  It's clean, lets play!"  I added the pics of the room redo too because it was recent, but not technically winter term.

Subject: Arithmancy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Personal Progress Book Holders
Brief Description: I'm going to demonstrate my arithmancy knowledge by making one lot of materials into ten personal progress books for the local church girls.  I'll have to use my arithmancy to make sure each of the ten are divided correctly between the ribbons, interfacing and material. 
While the sewing will be easy, it is something I'm not looking forward to, and making ten will take me the required time plus some.  I do not need to be finished until next spring, but am hoping taking my newt spot will quicken up my pace.

Moved a few months ago and have been putting my craft room together.  It started out as a salon, and gradually progressed to where it is today.  I got a challenge on a craftalong to clean out a place in your house and decided this already needed a good clean.  But I never posted the whole start to finish, thought it would be fun.

Starting as a salon, took out the cabinet, changed the sink, painted teal, put up shelves.  (As I'm looking through the board it is funny to see how many of us have teal craftrooms!)

Messy to clean

Full room!  Have more than double the space of my last room.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Patronus Wreath
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=450732.0
Brief Description: You have to think of a wonderful memory to make a patronus.  My memory is when I had the local girl scouts come over to paint their own wands.  It was delightful to see their faces so wowed that I made wand bases for them with nothing but paper and hot glue.

Class/Challenge/House Pride:  Arithmancy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Face Paint Poster
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: One of my ambitions is to become a professional face painter.  I feel my talent is there, but I lack the enthusiasm to create the business aspect.  But I can still practice for that day!  I created this paint poster for a Halloween Carnival where I painted with some friends.  Each character is hand drawn and then inputted into the computer and colored and pasted onto the poster.  I made this sign large for everyone to see and then a few copies for the painters at their stations.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Spider Cookies
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: For this class I made multiple spider cookies!  Each spider also has multiple legs.  Used the eyes I made many many multiples of last semester too.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Charms
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Brain Jello Jar
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: This jar is housing a jello brain.  I used a blood red color of cranberry jello for the brain and set it in a lemon yellow.  It was a fun table decoration for the kids and everyone thought it was very disturbing the way it jiggled realistically.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - October
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Alien Drawing
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: This improvised project was done by my girls each drawing simple shapes for me to make into a larger drawing.  I didn't know what I was going to draw until the shapes were set in front of me.  And I made sure to use pen so I could not erase anything.  It just had to be what it was going to be.  Turned into a snake pining for its alien girlfriend out in space!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Professor Trelawney Teacup
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: Family wanted to all go as Harry Potter characters and decided I would be Professor Trelawney.  Needed the iconic cup to go with it though!  Got a basic plastic teacup from the second hand store and used a paint pen to dot the picture inside. Placed it on a string and wore it as a necklace.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Mini Challenge - Put a  Pumpkin on it.
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Emoji Pumpkins
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: I used lots of mini pumpkins to make emojis for my porch. (you can see some other wands ready for the girl scouts to paint in the back of the pic too!)

26  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Harry Potter Patronus Wreath on: November 08, 2016 05:55:57 PM
Have had a wreath like this pinned for a while now and finally decided to go for it.

Used a vine wreath form and wrapped black halloween netting and glittery silver tulle around it.  Made some wands with paper, hot glue, and paint.  Found some creatures at the dollar store I painted silver.  Used printable burlap for the saying and then sewed a Hogwarts keychain on.

Love the way it turned out.  I have a pretty fall wreath for my door, but can't bare to put it up right now, so Patronum is staying up until Christmas.

-For those not familiar with Harry Potter, this is a spell he uses to scare away dementors.  A silvery animal shoots out the wand and runs the soul sucker away.

I always go into the swap thinking 'I'll make 3 X's' and then look at the questionnaires and think 'I want to make A B & C'!

House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Hamster Hazards Carnival Game
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=450628.0
Brief Description: Hamster Hazards.  Hamsters in balls roll all over the board and last in a hole wins.  This helps my Divination because I can foresee what hamster will win, plus they are already in crystal balls!

30  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Hamster Hazards Carnival Game on: October 30, 2016 08:14:59 PM
I'm in charge of the Elementary School Halloween Carnival (again) and last year made all the games (Operation was one of them).  So we wanted to make a new game for this year and plus my daughter wanted a Hamster themed birthday party so we went with it.  Randomly found a carnival game online called hamster rumble and thought it was so fun.  But we had to take it a step further and instead of the hamsters just falling in potholes, we made them funny hazards.

Hubby made the board for me and then I painted it.

Shrinky Dink back numbers corresponded to little paddle numbers so kids can't fight about numbers.

Ended up hating the yellow and went for white.  Better, so started painting the hazards.


Hamster Balls roll around the game board and last one standing is the winner.  Hazards are aliens, poisons, Fluffy the kitty, radioactive spider, black hole, road kill, toilet bowl, and mousetrap.

At the Carnival

Sad and shaky video of me trying to play a game with one hand.  Enter if you dare.

Was a hit! After last year being so deserted we were swamped this year, so either I did better about advertising or word got around about our awesome games.  I wasn't part of the final total, but heard in passing that it was our best carnival yet.
