:::squeeee:::  I'm excited too!!!! Grin  Oh, I'm like kid on Christmas morn!  I'll be in-and-out all weekend, but I really can't wait craft and plan my Fall Schedule.  First I'm going to tackle an OWL, so I'll be back later today to post my proposal.

Just hoping we get some more first years!  (Did I mention that I think everyone who did the Summer Semester should now be Second Years?  I believe Summer HPCers truly have finished their first year....hmmmm, must contact my Spreadsheet Sorceress to perhaps build up Year list...be back with more details... Cool)

CALLING ALL SLYTHERINS!  Your house does not have a Head of House.  A Head of House duties are to be a house cheerleader (which could be cheering their housemate projects, inspiring ideas to complete classes/challenges, etc.), monitor and be active in their HPC Common Room (and if you're a FOC, you can open a chatty Common Room in the FOC OT Board), and field questions from their house.  If you are interested, PM me.

Portkey to Detention!

Remember, you can do any, all, or none of the Detention Challenges as they come up each month.  The goal here is always to be excited about our crafting!

Greetings Hogwarts students and professors!! Just a quick note to say that I will be moving apartments over this next week! And, seeing as I live in a muggle-rich society, I cannot simply magic the furniture to it's destination. So we must use strange boxy muggle transportation thingies called "cars" and bigger muggle transportation thingies called "Trucks" for my furniture.
    This seems like it will take a while  Roll Eyes It's too bad I can't use an Undetectable Bag Extension Charm. Muggles would be suspicious if I kept pulling boxes out of 'seemingly nowhere." Cheesy

    So please pardon my extended vacation for the first week of term.  Cool

I'll be attending Detention, and Kiss for the reminder about picking and choosing our crafty path...you are so wise dear Deputy Headmistress. Cool

Welcome to Hogwarts sakuracat23!  I am so happy you are joining us.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate in sending OWL, either by PM or post in this thread.  Take you time exploring the castle; I suggest the Portkeys in the first page, first post of this thread.  And remember, the HPC is a Crafty Choose Your Own Adventure.  Attend the classes and complete the challenges that inspire you; there is no need to Craft All The Things! (though I have that illness all the time....if only I had a time turner)  Good luck, and have fun! Grin

Sending blessings and protection spells for smooth move!  You shall be missed in the castle, and you must tell us your tales of the Muggle World. Grin

YAYYYYYYY fall semester!  Grin


~*OWL PROPOSAL*~
OWL Subject: Study of Ancient Runes
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Beatrix Potter Birth Announcement
Brief Description:

As the summer HPCers know, I have a baby girl!  Her nursery is largely decorated with Beatrix Potter pieces, including a full set of the books.  I was able to borrow a book on interlibrary loan that contained a beautiful Beatrix Potter birth sampler:



I'm going to make this sampler for her.  It includes a chart AND uses wayyyy more than 7 symbols, lol.  I'm going to fill up the  middle some more by including her middle name and birth weight, as well as possibly using the long form date.

So O.W.L. mistresses, will this be an acceptable project?  I'll be working on 28-count aida, so it's very fine work and quite slow going (especially as there's extensive outline stitching).  I'm thinking it'll take at least all this semester.

Oooh yay fall semester! Wasn't able to do summer semester so I can't wait to go back to Hogwarts now!

All my personal projects end up getting pushed to the end of my to-do list so this will be the perfect motivator Smiley

Good luck moving IsikkahJai! Oh wow an OWL proposal already! It looks so intricate!

tiamatfire, What a lovely project; your Study of Ancient Runes OWL proposal is approved.  I am sending you all my protection spells and my potion for eyestrain headaches just in case.  Please keep us posted on your progress; I can not wait to see your finished OWL.  Once your OWL is finished and posted, you will not only pass your OWL and earn a new shiny badge, you will be entered in our Special Award for Services to the School (aka Prize Drawing!).  GOOD LUCK!
