First of all for those of you keeping up with ErinAquaheart's situation: We found out that her cancer has spread to her liver and that her initial diagnosis of stage three was wrong she is actually in stage four. This was devastating news, and we have had to dive head first into an aggressive treatment regimen. Her family came to be with her during the first few days of this new reality and that is why we have been M.I.A. around here lately. All of your thoughts, prayers, and spew projects have meant the world to us. Thank you all so much for your kindness and support.

Slytherin House: Don't worry I haven't forgotten about you! I am so proud of all of your amazing projects and I am so happy to see us getting a few new members! I even have my eye on a prefect, could it be you? Stay tuned because I am still planning a really fun extra credit surprise.

Now for some of my homework:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: September Detention
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Sock Monster

This sock monster was laying around my house in pieces. Occasionally I have come across the body ready to be stuffed or the ears ready to be stitched and I meant to get around to finishing him. So, finally after a few YEARS I decided to assemble him.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bean- Lobster
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Remembering Christmas the way it was

This is kind of sad but when I thought about something from my past that I miss and wish I could go back to, what hit me the hardest was Christmas. I grew up in Salt Lake City, so Christmas time was always cold and Crisp. Snow was in the mountains and we had a fire in the fireplace. My dad loved holidays so much and he had a talent for making everything magical. Both my parents were big advocates of handcrafted everything so we spent a lot of time either making projects of our own or being the customers of people who handmade all kinds of wonderful things. It wasn't until my parents divorced and we moved away that I even had jam and bread from a store rather than handmade from a farmers market or a friend. Holidays were truly special because of these values. But time went on, my parents divorced, I grew up and became cynical, and my dad passed away. With all of that the holidays kind of fall flat for me. ErinAquaheart and I spend each holiday season that we have together trying to make it magical in new ways. So I made this little felt hand stitched ornament to remember the more innocent magical holiday seasons of my youth.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
House: Slytherin
Project Name:Kitty Paw Arm warmers

Cat's are always so graceful and nimble on their feet so for this class I studied their paws and made these arm warmers to show what I learned.

They are so comfortable! I love wearing them. I can't wait until it gets colder outside!

What are these whispers about a scavenger hunt I have been hearing in the Slytherin common room?
Hmmm... Something is definitely brewing for Slytherin house, and it's bound to be exciting! Stay tuned for an opportunity for extra credit that will help you on your way to greatness!

Now for some of my own school work:

With all the tests and the latest troubling news with ErinAquaheart I haven't had much time to craft but I did get these two classes done. We will hear once and for all about whether her cancer has spread to her liver on Monday. This has been the. longest. few. days. EVARRR.  Embarrassed

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Frog Choir
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Kawaii Froggy Coffee Sleeve

When I was a teen I loved loved LOVED anything sanrio and definitely in my top three two favorites was Kerropi and you don't see that character anymore. I had a mini backpack with kerropi on it that I never parted with Smiley I STILL love me some sanrio. So in tribute to my teenhood which I like to pretend that I still am in  Grin I made this coffee sleeve.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Fairy Door Made From Whomping Willow Bark

Fairies have a powerful magic that is not yet totally understood but we do know that inviting them into your home will bring their blessings and magic to your life. Since we need all the blessings we can get right now I made this fairy door and since the whomping willow is a powerful defensive magical plant and I was lucky enough to obtain a sample of it's bark I made the fairy door with it, so that maybe the blessings that the fairies bring will be as rare, powerful, and defensive as the whomping willow.

53  Hand Stitched Felt Halloween Ghost Brooches in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by TechnicolorAquahearts on: September 04, 2013 07:23:52 PM
I made these while waiting in a waiting room. They were really fun and all the supplies fit in a little plastic bag making them a very portable craft Smiley

54  Abstract Fish Ink Drawing Notecards in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by TechnicolorAquahearts on: September 04, 2013 07:14:27 PM
I have been in kind of a rut artistically lately so I decided to try something outside of the box for me. Here's what I came up with: Some abstract ink drawings of fish and a Narwhal. I abstracted them by taking the color and pattern of their markings beyond the forms of the animals and on to the rest of the art surface. I am pretty pleased with how they turned out and I am interested in exploring this kind of thing more.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bean- Cinnamon
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Halloween Decoration

One thing that makes my home feel warm and cozy is decorating for holidays and occasions. So I made this little ghost ornament to decorate for Halloween. He goes with the one I made last semester. I may even make a third one before Halloween.

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Flying
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Flying Ghost Brooches

When flying, one thing you may come across is a ghost, when encountering a ghost while flying you have to be careful because they can fly right through you which can give you a chill and cause you to shudder and loose your balance on your broom.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Potions
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Double chocolate mug cake preparations

These mug cakes fill the prescription for this class because the warm chocolate serves the perfect antidote to soul sucking dementor attacks. chocolate is also well known to combat stress and give much needed comfort in many situations.

56  Slytherin Common Room in Craftalongs by TechnicolorAquahearts on: September 01, 2013 09:46:59 AM

Welcome Back Slytherins!!

Dear Fellow Slytherins,
       Welcome back to Hogwarts for the fall semester of crafty exploration. If you are returning it is wonderful to have you back. Slytherins have a long tradition of greatness and you all have definitely added much to that greatness. To our brand new first years: Congratulations on being sorted into Slytherin! The sorting hat said it best when he said: "You could be great you know, and Slytherin can help you on your way to greatness!!" (never mind that the boy to whom this was said still insisted on being in another house, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink, anyway, I digress, and besides we are to look at our fellow houses with positive and friendly partnership, but a little healthy competition never hurt anyone, right?  Wink )
       I, TechnicolorAquahearts, will be your Head of House this semester and I can't tell you how excited I am to cheer you on and provide all kinds of opportunities for you to show your Slythie pride! Keep checking back here for more development of the common room and other house activities!

Slytherin Extra Credit Scavenger Hunt:

coming soon....

Class/Challenge/House Pride: D.A.D.A.
Project Name: Baby Ghost Halloween Ornament

Hinkypunks or will-o-the-wisps are fabled to be the ghosts of children who had died and not properly laid to rest or still born babies. So I made a little baby ghost ornament.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flying
House:  Slytherin
Project Name: Narwhal of the North Greeting Card

One of the options for flying was something that has to do with the North and my favorite northern animal is the narwhal so I made an abstract drawing greeting card honoring it.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Bright and Summery Herb Gathering Pouch

I had some of this amazing summery yarn left so I made a pouch for gathering summery things whether it be the herbs of mid summer or the sunscreen and chapstick of the summer beach Smiley


That's right! I have six Bingo's to declare:

* this is assuming that pinkleo accepted my prize donation that I made yesterday. *

I down
N down
G down
Diagonal from Detention to Quidditch
Charms Across
Arithmancy Across

Well, that's my end of the semester post! I can't wait for the Fall term to begin!

I have a whole bunch of last minute assignments to get in under the wire!

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Bean-Honey+ SPEW
Project Name: Flowery office pass

This Office pass is for my mother's classroom who teaches 4th grade at a public school. Since it is a donated item to a public school it qualifies for SPEW and since it has flowers on it it qualifies for this bean!

Class/Challenge/House Pride:August Detention
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Ocean Life Abstract Art Greeting Cards

I love trying new artistic styles and techniques so with these I played a little with color and pattern, I am really proud of how they turned out Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Astronomy
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Snake zen drawing

This drawing fits this class because it is inspired by the contellation Ophiuchus or The Snake Bearer he is a relatively rare constellation that can only be seen some summers. The snake is a symbol of Asclepius who is considered the father of medicine. I thought this constellation was perfect for me this summer considering that it represents powerful healing which is something my family really needs right now.

Wow so many great projects since I was here last! Thank you all so much for all of your SPEW efforts for Erin she has been greatly uplifted by them. I'm sorry if it took me a long time to get back to some of you with our information. Erin was in the hospital again and I didn't have a chance to get online. You all really have wrapped her in so much thoughtfulness and comfort, I will let her thank everyone individually when she posts, but I have been so touched by how amazing you all are.

I have one class to turn in right now but I am hoping to have a few more before the time is up Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Care Package Cookies
Brief Description: One aspect of muggle camping is being sent away to camp for the summer. This is often a mixed bag of emotions for muggle children so their parents send them care packages which are cookies from home thinly disguised as personal care items. So here are some care package chocolate chip cookies.

Attention Pinkleo: These Are ErinAquaheart's Projects she was sick and asked if I could turn them in for her

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch penalty Bumphing
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Colorectal cancer awareness and protection scarf

The awareness ribbon for colorectal cancer is dark blue so Erin made herself a dark blue scarf to protect her from the curse that she is fighting right now.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch- penalty- Quaffle Pocking
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Cuddly crochet scarf

You can't deny it crochet is full of holes so Erin made this cuddly brown scarf for this challenge:
