@pottermouth: I just adore your papercutting pieces!  And Kiss for the tips; these are lessons I'm sure all our students will heed in the future.

@redpopsicles & Roke45: Welcome to Hogwarts!  The Slytherin Den is lucky to have you!

@Roke45: Fantastic Potions Kit!  Make sure to stop by the Badge Station and pick up your Herbology badge.

@Abbeeroad: What a lovely piece!  Gorgeous Embroidery!  And the Hanger is AMAZING!

I can't think of anything to do for an owl!  Huh I tend to obsess over large projects, spending a few days working on nothing else until they're done.

This is me too.  I will work night and day until it is done. I finished a 15 hour project in three days last month.
After my dream owl, I don't know what I'll do.  Guess you can always do a dream journal too!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

OWL Subject & Option(if available): Muggle Studies
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Fairytale Chess
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques used, materials using, plan of action, expected timeline, etc.) Taking inspiration from a combination of Disney and Grimm's, I am going to make a chess set using paper mache techniques. The board will be cardboard from a soda box and I'll use newspaper strips to cover it and give it a bit more structure. The pieces will be paper mache figures and i plan on trying to add as much detail as possible for each piece, supplementing what can't be done in paper mache with other craft supplies. I will paint everything and use paper pulp to smooth out bumps and creases. A paper mache spell book will aid me on this venture as it's my first time in a very long while that I've worked with these techniques. The bases will be white and black.

Tentatively the white pieces will be

Pawns: genie lamp, red riding hood, glass slipper, book, white bird, pumpkin, fairy godmother
Castles: Rapunzel's Tower
Bishops: Doc and Dopey
Knights: Prince Philip and the Beast
King: King Triton
Queen: Queen Athena

and the black pieces will be
 
Pawns: poison apple, seashell, spindle/spinning wheel, magic mirror, gingerbread house, Queen of Hearts, a hook, queen of hearts
Castles: Cinderella's stepsisters
Bishops: Jafar and Gaston
Knights: Wolf and Maleficent
King: Ursula wearing Triton's crown
Queen: Evil Queen (Snow White)

some of the pieces may change these were my first brainstorm.

Thanks jilly and pinkleo - I hope your kind words are an indication for how my friends feel about their gift!

And because I so covet that Quidditch badge, here's one more for me!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: September Quidditch Practice Challenge
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Cultivate Love Prayer Flag
Project Page Link (if available): N/A
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.)

Yay for quick and fun challenges to get things off my "to-do" list! I made this for the Oceanside Museum of Art Prayer Flag Project. I'll be sending this flag out to California to reflect my hopes and dreams for the future. I chose "cultivate love" because I hope that more people in the future cultivate a sense of personal responsibility for the thoughts and emotions they choose to feed both within themselves and in others. I hope that this awareness transforms our world for the better.

This flag took me about an hour using scraps from my dye pile, my sewing machine, and some letter stamps.

Class/Challenge: September Quidditch Practice Challenge
House: Hufflepuff
Project: Quick Knit Bracelet
Brief Description: I'm so glad to be back on the practice field - I live around Muggles so I can't fly during vacation! But my hands get cold, so I made a quick bracelet out of soft wool as a wrist warmer.
Project Picture: http://i1154.photobucket.com/albums/p537/Kitthebrave/a5a93411.jpg

(I didn't know if I could do this in an hour! The whole time I was knitting, I was thinking, "Do I know where my yarn needles are? And if I don't, do I have to count the time I spend looking for them? Cheesy)

@ShardaeDobby, your chess set sounds amazing and I can't wait to see it!
@Abbeeroad, what a wonderful present! I'm sure it'll end up in a place of honor.
