class-Divination
house-gryffindor
project-fabric journal swap
slytherin scavenger hunt- action 3-purple, hand, tutu, rainbow

my partner just recieved, so i can post before the semester is over! I hadn't done this swap before, so it was a fun challenge. her theme was sewing, and she specifically meantioned the laura ashley type dresses from the 70's and 80's. The floral print lace trimmed dresses, and the stuffy models on the pattern envelopes were meant to give the impression of royalty, but by todays standards are a bit silly. still i remembered wearing some of those dresses myself, so it was fun to recreate one.



i put a backing on the skirt of the dress to give it some fullness, not quite a tutu. i found the button trim at hobby lobby and loved the rainbow of buttons.

My obligatory end of term project dump...

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Etched Candy Jar
Brief Description:  This semester in alchemy I harnessed the power of potential fire and etched Honeydukes Sweet Shop onto my candy jar.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Washi Tape Organizer
Brief Description:  Due to a half off wash tape sale at Michaels, I have amassed a collection of wash tape.  I needed a way to organize/store this tape so it does not take over my desk.  Because when my desk is mega messy is causes me mental distress.  I cut a dowel into three 12 pieces and screwed them to a premed wooden round.  I painted the stand with a wash of dark brown paint, added gold accents to the tops of the poles and finished it off by gluing felt to the bottom to prevent the screws from scratching my desk.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy & Iron Hogwarts - Kale
SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Kale Mashed Cauliflower
Brief Description:  I wanted to make mashed potatoes to go along with my dinner one night, but wanted something more healthy than a plate of carbs.  So I substituted cauliflower for potatoes in my recipe. 

Cut 1 head of cauliflower into florets and add to a pot along with three whole peeled cloves of garlic.  Cover the cauliflower with water and bring to a boil.  Boil the cauliflower for 15 minutes or until fork tender.  While the cauliflower is cooking, cut half a bunch of kale into thin ribbons.  Drain off the water and add the cauliflower to a blender.  Blend the cauliflower until smooth adding milk to reach the desired consistency.  Return the cauliflower back to the pot, add the kale ribbons and heat over medium heat until the kale begins to wilt and the cauliflower is nice and hot.  Season with salt and pepper.

If I made this again I would probably add one small potato to the cauliflower to help with the texture of the mash, as cauliflower alone can be a bit watery.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Mini Lemon Cheesecake
Brief Description: The lemon in the recipe make this cheesecake both bright in flavor and very pale yellow in color.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Braces Travel Kit
Brief Description: I began wearing Invisalign braces at the beginning of this semester.  Overall it has been a good experience, except for the times I need to eat away from my house.  I needed to make a small bag to carry my toothbrush, toothpaste, braces holder and collapsible cup.  I used a scrap of fabric to make a small (5x3) drawstring bag so I can keep all my braces paraphernalia in my purse.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress Challenge - May
SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Pea Salad
Brief Description: I am a big fan of most picnic salads - potato salad, macaroni salad, cole slaw, etc.; but I especially love pea salad. I made this batch of pea salad for an at home picnic with my husband, who did not eat any because he is wrong and doesnt like peas.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Altered Brownies
Brief Description:  I made a batch of salted caramel, Twix brownies for movie night with my husband. 

I used a basic brownie mix prepared as the package instructions say.  I then chopped 16 fun sized Twix bars into bite sized pieces and added them to the batter.  Add the batter to a greased 8x8 pan.  I then swirled the brownie batter with salted caramel and then added a sprinkling of kosher salt to the top of everything.  I baked them according the the box instructions and enjoyed them very much with a big mug of milk.

Here's a little quicky project I did this weekend. I recently purchased a new iPad cover because the one I had was literally falling apart. I found a $10 cover on Amazon, and it's like my whole tablet is brand new. Yesterday I was messing around in the craft room and decided to pull out my washi tape and customize the cover. It was a plain mint green, but now...


It helped that I had a couple of rolls of thinner tape, because I don't think it would work to put tape in the folds. Having the thinner tape meant that I could cover each of the three areas fully. I burnished everything really well once it was in place, so hopefully the tape will last long without pealing.

The record for most correct guesses is 8/10, which could partially be on my crafting, but is hopefully partially do to the obscurity of some of the animals.



I'm in the final stages of putting the book together and it should be ready to deliver by my baby niece's 6 month birthday.  I've been dreaming of this project since I found out my sister-in-law was pregnant, and had to wait months after that to find out the name!

Hi guys,

first samples made of this awesome two-piece. Consists of a batwing top and a tube skirt. Made in holographic black / multi foil jersey. I loves it. It's gorgeous for any event but also comfy to dance in -- not to mention my Aspergers ass cannot handle uncomfortable fabrics at ALL so it passes my super sensitive skin test.



Do you like? I will wear it out with some heeled mesh ankle boots and a gold chain belt I think .
