LOOOKING GOOD! That will be a neat centerpiece. Make sure you make some of these:

Witches Fingers Cheese Straws. Very easy to do, and tasty, too. There are other recipes online as well.


Another good one for party food is Coffin Finger Sandwitches...like these:

Just add your choice of filling...tuna salad, chicken salad, etc. Thin slices of cucumber taste great added in there as well. Make a cardboard template to cut the crust off the bread. Refrigerated bread cuts easiest. Squirt on ketchup or gel food color (like for cake decorating) for the R.I.P. part. Or you can use mustard for that instead. They are quick and easy to do. You can save the extra bread scraps to make homemade croutons.

Have a fun party  Grin

I found a narrow slate, still with ye olde naile hole in it. The roof of the barn out back donated it.
I painted one of my daughter's favorite themes on it....birch trees... and fastened a rope lip along the outer edges and two handles for it to become a tea server. Decorated two mugs to go with it.

Every step of the way proved difficult (swear words abounded) so it was over 10 days late for her birthday. But she loved it!
Here is a straight-on pic of the art...

One side of the mugs

and the other

first cleaned thoroughly (slate) then did green background in acrylics. Trees were next layer and they were freehanded. Left bare edges all 'round because I was going to do one continuous black rope loop all around, with two areas of looping up/not glued, to be handles. The adhesive I so carefully researched (then went out and bought) boasted in teeeny tiiiny letters at the bottom "not to be used on polypropelene" which is what the rope was. Dang.

So I switch glues but it did not hold strongly enough to be used as a handle with hot cups of tea.
Looked all over creation for two antique handles that someone on my property had rescued for me months ago off an armoire. He knew I could use them in crafting. The last words I heard from him as I slinked away at the end of a three-hour search were "Now, where DID I put those things??!!"

So I went out and bought two handles (got the last white ones in the whole store) and glued them on. Adhesive said clearly it worked on stone and metal. Woo hoo, my problems were at an end!  Until I picked it all up and one handle came off. I was busy ranting to a neighbor about it when he pointed out that the glue held just fine and that I should reconsider suing the Bulldog Cement company.  He showed me that the slate, as old slates will do when they have fallen from a great height off the barn where they have been happily living for a century -or even at any point in their life whatsoever if they so choose-, had simply 'sloughed off' a layer of itself. Woooooooe is meeee!!

so, on to plan B or perhaps I should say plan Q at this time, drill tiny holes in the slate, dangerously near the edges I will point out (!!) and thread a sturdy stringythingy thru both slate and existing screw holes in the handles.
I drilled without breathing. Apparently that should be included on every set of drilling instructions on the internet, because it worked. I threaded the sturdy cord thru , tied it off, and glued the BaJingos out of it so it would not even consider coming undone.

If you have actually read all that info instead of just glancing at the enchanting photographs, you are entitled to a prize. simply enter your name on the back of a twenty dollar bill and mail it to me and you will receive your prize in ten to fourteen business years.
thanks for looking!!!

edelC, that Sorting Hat tea cozy is fantastic!  I love the shirts, too, great job!

Holy pile of puppets, ErinAquaheart!  They are all adorable and so creative.  I want to go trick-or-treating at your house this year...

I'm excited to see your OWL, WhistleFish, that pattern looks really cute.  Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination class
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Nerdy Bookshelf Picture
Brief Description: For this assignment, I focused on the "achievement in arts" aspect of the Sun card.  I consider this picture an achievement because I don't have a lot of experience making digital art, but I think it turned out rather well.  I took images of nerdy things from the internet and combined them into one picture using the GIMP.  (I'm particularly proud of the transparency effect I made with the jar.)  The nerdy items are an Ankh-Morpork City Watch badge, Harry Potter's wand, the Tenth Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver, Mr. Pointy (the stake from Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Belle's chipped cup from Once Upon a Time, a block of diamond ore from Minecraft, and a leather-bound set of Lord of the Rings books.
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Philosopher's Stone #3 (Plant Pains)
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Hot Butterbeer
Project Page Link: Recipe page
Brief Description: I've tried various Butterbeer recipes in the past, and none of them impressed me.  All of the recipes I used were for chilled Butterbeer, though, and today was such a cold wet bundle-up-and-drink-something-warm day I wanted to try a hot one instead.  I followed the recipe at the link above, except I didn't have any butterscotch topping so I used butterscotch schnappes instead (in both the drink and the whipped cream).  It turned out really well!
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration class
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Kindle Stand
Brief Description: My least favorite chore is washing dishes, but I have discovered that if I prop my Kindle Fire up in front of the sink and play Doctor Who or Once Upon a Time, I'll wash all the dishes in the house and even come up with other things to clean (the stove, the inside of the microwave, etc) if I run out of dishes before the end of the episode.  When the makeshift cardboard stand I'd been using fell apart I figured it was time to make a nice, sturdy one to replace it.  The basswood, tiny hinge, and spray paint I used were all from my stash.
Project Picture:

(I sawed a little too far into the left side and had to patch the cuts, and my camera's flash highlighted the spackle.  It's not that obvious in real life...)

Haven't been posting many projects, mostly because all the things I'm working on at the moment are pretty big. And just 'cause I'm crazy, lemme do an OWL proposal!

OWL Subject & Option: Study of Ancient Runes, Option 1-Use an intricate charted design
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Wee Little Pirate Costume
Brief Description: Some of you may remember the Dorothy costume I made for Luna last year. Truth be told, I haven't really sewed anything (with a sewing machine) since then. Lol. I can sew, but I don't do it much so when I do it's like learning it all over again. Sewing patterns may be easy for some but for me they are definitely intricate. Here's hoping I get it done by Halloween!
Sneak Peek: It's the costume in the middle...the older girl. Isn't it cute?!

@ErinAquaheart: So many finger puppets! You're like a machine, woman! Lol.
@gaudiknight: I love those dresses!! They turned out so good!
