Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
SPEW: n/a
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Soul Food - Rhubarb Crumble Cake
Project Page Link (if available): above in title - I used a German recipe but the above is about as near as it gets (and means I don't have to translate everything this late before cut off time for term! Wink ).
Brief Description: Every time I try to keep calm or have a lot of pressure I tend to go for some German food I associate with my (more or less) happy childhood and teenage years before I moved to the UK. It probably wouldn't be like that if my favourite German foods/recipes were easily available up here... Wink

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
SPEW: n/a
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Two Star Wars Heroines T'shirts
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: My girls wanted to have a Star Wars Party for their 5th birthday, and both wanted a t-shirt with their Star Wars Heroines (Supergirl wanted Rey, Miss Martian wanted Leia). So I used my trusted "cammie" and cut some vinyl silhouettes for their new t-shirts. Given that the t-shirts were for twins and also included two heroines I thought this provided enough links for this prompt. Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Arithmancy
SPEW: n/a
Project Name: Shiny!
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: Using my silhouette and HTV (heat transfer vinyl) is currently my go-to craft (used to be scrapbooking but that's a once a month thing now). Once I've done the file it's giving me quick gratification, and I have still lots to do with it. Smiley
One of the people at this year's Comic Con ordered a Firefly t-shirt for her young son from me, and I finally managed to find the time to get it sorted for her.

House: Slytherin
Project Name: Owl Bag for edelC
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: For the "I want to live in the Burrows" swap I made one of my transforming bags for edelC. To set the vinyl on the bag I need heat (heat transfer = iron on).

Class/Challenge/House Pride:CoMC / Iron Chef APPLE
SPEW: n/a
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Autumn fruit salad
Project Page Link (if available):n/a
Brief Description: We had a lot of apples that needed being used, so I decided to make a fruit salad.

6 Eating Apples - cored & cut into cubes
2 cups of grapes - cut in half (but doesn't have to be)
3-4 Tablespoons of Fat Free yogurt or Greek Yogurt
1 Teaspoon of cinnamon
1-2 Teaspoons of runny honey (depending on tartness of apples & sourness of yogurt) - to taste really

Mix it all up in a bowl and voila! Yummy autumn fruit salad.
You can also add some chopped walnuts on top (which I like but none of the rest of the family seems to like).

It's a 5 ingredient recipe for the prompt, and the main ingredient is APPLE for Iron Chef.

Brief Description: Another TM patch for noodle-bug. This time I used fabric I've never used before... one with longer fibre... oh gosh, I don't recall the name of that kind of fabric! Brain dead!! I also very thinly cut felt which I cut with my cuttlebug (which is a new-ish thing for me too).

Project Name: Abandoned PattyO Frog Card
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: This was supposed to be my frog card.  Thought I was being all clever drawing everything by hand.  Thought it would be fun and different being all cartoony!  .... Until I showed my super artistic 11 year old witch and she says "Ew, you look weird." ..... o---kay.  Ouch.  Told her that hurt and then she started crying because she didn't mean to make me feel bad. Either way, was back to the drawing board and went with realistic.  Still spent some good time drawing it and it's well definied border, so I'll post it as a class.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: PattyO Frog Card
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: My frog card for the exchange.  Front has a pretty pic of me and then you reverse it to find all the fun facts about myself.  True story my mom always said that my dad was like Hagrid.  A giant man, with a sweet and fragile touch.  Plus, fun post stamps!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Candy Eyes
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I'm a Hufflepuff!  That makes me just and loyal, true and unafraid of toil.  These candy eyes show how much I'm willing to toil.  Over an hour of piping alone.  I estimate I made 1200.  I'm ready for the sweets of the Halloween season!  And you have to admit, us crazy Hufflepuffs do love our goodies, being next to the kitchen and all.
Project Picture:

Candy Eye Decorations

4 tsp dehydrated egg whites
cup warm water
tsp cream of tartar
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp clear vanilla flavoring (or any clear flavoring)
Black food coloring

Mix water and egg whites in the bottom of a mixing bowl. Let stand 3-5 minutes. Add cream of tartar. Beat on high speed until stiff peaks form. Add powdered sugar one cup at a time and mix on medium just until combined. The resulting icing should also be stiff peak thick.

Take of the icing and put it in a small bowl and color black.  Be prepared to use a lot of coloring if you want a true black.  Thin each color to a pipeable consistency with water, about  pudding thick, then transfer into piping bags with a small circle tip.  

Pipe dots of eyes onto parchment paper or a silicone liner in the size you want the eyes to be.  Do a long row, then come back and pipe a smaller dot of black onto each white base.  Do this until you have no icing left.

Let dry overnight.  In the morning, peel the eyes away and store in an air tight container.  Can  be kept for years.  Recipe can be halved, but if you are making the mess, you might as well make a lot as the decorations wont go bad if stored properly.

Yay! I'm so glad you like what I came up with, Kittykill!

And you totally went overboard with my package! I can't believe how much stuff you got into a pumpkin!  I had to stand up on a chair to get the whole package in one shot!

Look at all the candy and fun Halloween-y stuff!  Where did you find all of this? There is washi tape, pencils, batty headband, skully glasses, witchy boot decorations, moustache, fake teeth! 

And the bunting!  So cute!

And, of course, a fantastic hoopla!

Most of this is going with me to visit my daughter at college this weekend! She's going to be so excited to get all of this! But the hoopla is for me!

Thanks so much for swapping with me kittykill!!

Challenge: Floo Powder #8: Ankh-Morpork
SPEW: Calais Refugee Camp
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Waterfall Striped Hat

Brief Description: So, I started with the Easy Peasy Women's Hat that I've posted before...  After row 5 however, I just started making things up.  I didn't want it to be a plain one color hat, so I added a row of single crochet in deep blue.  Then I just kinda went back and forth with colors and stitch sizes until I liked the way it looked.  The yarn is Lion Brand Homespun in Waterfall and Colonial.
Project Picture:

SPEW: Calais Refugee Camp
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Waterfall Cowl

Brief Description: So after making the hat above, I wanted to add something to it.  I know how when you're feeling low, even little things can make a big difference.  Even something as simple as a matching hat and scarf rather than old cast offs, can make you feel good about yourself.  This is the Checkered Cowl pattern by Briana Olsen. Since I had added stripes to the hat, I added a border of darker blue, and then I stained some unfinished wooden buttons a deep blue to match.

I am a bad partner.  I have not posted pics of the great pocket letter bigbangmomma sent me several days ago!
She really took the time and catered the pocket letter to my likes Smiley  I love it.  

She went with my cat theme, my love of coloring books pens.  And she included the "soft kitty" song on it from The Big Bang Theory Smiley  I love it when Peny sings that song.

here's a pic of the pocket letter outside the pockets so there's no glare:

The back ( the top middle is my very first craftster card - I blanked out the name and pic since I wasn't sure how bigbangmomma felt about having it posted on the internet!)

and all the goodies:
She included 4 adorable charms that say "handmade with love"
in the upper right are 2 adorable cute cat buttons
and a stack of UPC codes - I like using these in mixed media art
and some orange passionfruit jasmine tea I can't wait to try.

Thanks so much for a great pocket letter, bigbangmomma!
