Project Name: Wreath
Brief Description: As interesting as learning about wands is, I wanted to use those wand trees to make something else so a wreath it was. The green behind the embellishments are metallic balloons stitched and glued.

GO GRYFFINDOR!! *rooooaaarrrr!*

   Dearest Headmistress Pinkleo,
     
          Due to the fact that I am only a half-blood witch I have spend the summer with my muggle family and have only been keeping tabs on summer activities through OWL delivered letters from friends and challenge updates through the Daily Prophet (HP thread). I hope that I may be still be a cheerleader for my house *GO GRYFFINDOR!* and ease my way back into "assignments" with some "light reading."
         *Plunks down ancient sewing machine with a THUD and starts pulling out masses of fabrics* -puts on Hermione-esque determined face-
  I am excited for the Autumn Semester and have queued up some fantastic spells to help us win the House Cup!
                     With sincerest gratitude for keeping the Hogwarts Summer semester wonderful and creative,
                                               Isi (Jessica)

Dear professor Pinkleo,

First I need to send late congratulations for your birthday (125 was it?). I had spend some time countryside at my family's farm and our stooopid owl can't find its way anywhere from here...

I have few questions about current challence: does projects made earlier count in because my OTHPT3 would be perfect for this? Also I have been knitting my Ravenclaw scarf all summer and there's still some stripes to go...

House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Color-Changing Signature Stamp
Brief Description: This stamp was carved from a piece of the magical rubber tree for a wonderful witchy friend of mine! The stamp is bewitched to leave its mark in whichever color she chooses so she can sign all of her important scrolls, creations, etc with style. (Can you guess her Craftster username?)

ROAR!  Gryfinndors cheer the arrival of Isi!  And Professor pinkleo can't wait to see your crafty magic skills.  Send an owl either by PM to pinkleo or a post in this thread if you have any questions.  HAVE FUN!

Why thank you aliis Kiss (139 actually Wink). 

To answer your inquiry, quidditch projects need to be made during the timeline of July 27-August 12.  Note: Only Portkey & Quidditch have small timeline, all other challenges and assignments are open.  HPC Summer projects only have to be made during this semester.  In the Fall, there will be the option and reward to earn OWLs/NEWTs (and lots of house points) for more time-consuming projects (and once OWL/NEWT plans are submitted you may carry them over to the next semester if need be).  Your OTHPT does qualify for the Reducio Challenge.  Oh and please post your Ravenclaw scarf, it can go under House Pride/Spirit or if you like to have a bit of motivation in getting it done then I suggest you take it to Detention

~*Quidditch Update*~

A bludger dives toward Eiseldora, but she skillfully maneuvers her broomstick out of the way.  The blasted bludger then aims for pottermouth, but faster than seemingly possible, she whips out her bat and knocks the bludger away. Ravenclaw has now raked in 170 points.

patty_o_furniture, full of Puff Pride, finds herself chased by the bludger, but with a swing of her bat she sends that iron ball clear across the field.  Hufflepuff score 170 points.  

chughes spots the snitch, but with quaffle in hand she heads towards the hoops, amazingly flying no-handed so she can keep an eye out for that troublesome bludger, and scores!  Gryffindor now has 160 points.

special_occasion arrives on the field for Slytherin and immediately heads for the snitch.  She then finds herself behind the hoop where chughes makes her score.  A quaffle is headed right towards her head, but with quick reflexes, special_occasion catches the quaffle and scores for Slytherin.  Slytherin is now on the board with 40 points.

Class: Potions "A Forgetfulness Potion is something all first years must learn.  Create something that helps you remember."
House: Slytherin
Project Name: An honest feast
Brief Description:
In May, an uncle of mine died at a relatively young age (I think he was 66, he had only just retired) of aggressive stomach cancer. I wasn't particularly close with said uncle, the husband of one my father's sisters. We didn't see them all that often when the relationship with my dad was still good, and when my father stopped acting like a father and started acting like an idiot, we lost even that bit of occasional contact. Even so, I was really shaken when I heard about it and I felt incredible sorry for my aunt to become a widow at only 62.

I wrote her a letter back then, to offer whatever comfort I could give her. I'd done the same for my great-aunt when her husband had died somewhat over a year earlier, and I know that that has had a lot of impact for her. She told me at the funeral, and so did the kids, and at the new years celebration 8 months later, they all thanked me again for that kind letter (I think up to three, maybe four times during that day!) and my great-aunt told me that she still often read that card when she was feeling sad and alone... Knowing what an effect that card had had, I wrote to my aunt too. Not just the polite card of "My deepest condolences for your loss." but what I remembered of her husband and what he had been to me.

I told her I was shaken by the news, and that I mourned her husband. Even though we had never been close, I had good memories of him. To me, he was the man that would merrily be fixing things at my grandmothers, a bit of a handyman that would paint the fences, mend the tap and repair the bike. But more than that, he was the man that was passionate about growing vegetables. He did most of the gardening for my grandmother, growing simple things like carrots, pumpkins, beans, potatoes, tomatoes, leeks and lots more. Nearly every sunday we were at my grandmother's, he would also be there, fixing things and gardening and then having lunch together with us. A simple lunch, just some meat, potatoes from the garden and homegrown veggies, a cool beer on the side, that was a feast for my uncle. He thought me the joy that is in a homegrown carrot and showed us that happiness is in the little things. I told her that I know that he was so much more than that for her, and that therefore I couldn't imagine how big her pain must therefore be, but that I hoped she was surrounded by people that would help carry the pain so she would eventually be able to remember him with fondness, not with grief. I also told her that since the last contact we had, I had moved out of my mother's house, all the way to the Netherlands with my boyfriend and that we had just planted our own vegetable patch a couple of months back, inspired by my uncle's love of growing your own. In the letter, I promised her that with our very first harvest, we would commemorate her husband. Cooking our own meal straight from the garden, savouring the food like he would have, in all its simplicity.

So when we had our first harvest today, I stood by that promise. I picked the pods from the poles in the garden, shelled our harvest of peas and cooked us a simple and honest feast. To me, that seemed the most fitting way to honour him, celebrating his life, not mourning his death.
