3322  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / ~*Detention in the Dungeons*~ (Work-In-Progress Completion Posts) on: May 31, 2013 08:58:45 AM
~*Detention in the Dungeons*~

This semester there will be three Detention Challenges, one for each month.  You are welcome to do any, all, or none of these challenges.  (Remember, they are just here to help get your crafty juices flowing!)  All Detention projects may be turned in anytime during the semester, regardless of what the newest Challenge is, up until the semester ends on August 31st.  (For example, you may turn in June or July challenges in August.)

June Challenge: Kitchen Duty
Darn!  Mr. Filch has caught you sneaking an entire chocolate gateaux out of the Great Hall, in an attempt throw a post Quidditch game party in your common room. Fortunately your Head of House has overruled his decision to have you hung by your ankles in the dungeons.  Instead you have been ordered to spend all of Saturday helping the House Elves in the Kitchens.  But with summer temperatures rising, the heat in the kitchens is getting unbearable!  Help keep the House Elves cool by whipping up a recipe that DOES NOT heat up the kitchen.  For this challenge you must post a picture & a complete recipe that does not require an oven or stove top.  You may make use of a microwave, crock pot, or toaster if you wish.  So what are you waiting for?  Share your favorite cool salads, microwave mug cake or summertime crock pot dinner, so we can all go outside and sit by the Black Lake!

July Challenge:
Ugh, Detention with Snape yet again.  He is loving keeping you away from Quidditch and your friends.  This week will be a repeat of last week; copying over old Detention Records.  To complete your Detention, you must finish a WIP (Work in Progress). WIPs can be projects that you just haven't quite finished or projects that you bought all the supplies for but never got around to actually making.  If possible, post before and after pics in the thread.  So get going!  The sooner you start, the sooner you'll finish and can go find out who won the Quidditch Match.

August Challenge:
It's the dead of August and you are out of school, and mercifully you are even out of the Dursley's house!  But while staying with the Weasley's does involve being fed 3 wonderful meals a day from Molly, it also means helping out with many chores.  This month Molly is frantically trying to get Shell Cottage ready for Bill & Fleur to move in after their wedding.  There's the garden, which is overrun with Chizpurfles.  A rogue Hippogriff seems to have built a nest in the attic out of musty old drapes.  And then there's the boring tasks like scrubbing the floors, raking the sand out front, and even sweeping out the hearth so it can be reconnected to the Floo Network.  Since there's no chance of sneaking off to the craft store for supplies, for this challenge, you must craft something either using some of the shells found around the cottage, or something inspired by shells & sea life.

Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans
A risk with every mouthful!

"You want to be careful with these. When they say every flavor, they mean every flavor - you know you get all the ordinary ones like chocolate and peppermint and marmalade, but then you can get spinach and liver and tripe. George reckons he had a bogey-flavored one once." - Ron Weasley

Its no secret that Hogwarts students love sweets.  And teachers, Headmasters & Headmistresses have been known to enjoy their share of treats too.  Therefore, your brilliant Headmistresses have devised an epic new *series* of Mini-Challenges for you.  

Every two weeks we will pull a new bean out of the bag.  Each bean will be the inspiration for a mini-challenge.  Students may complete and post a craft based on that theme to earn extra House Points, and a Badge for that challenge.  Once a new challenge is posted, the old one is gone and cannot be entered.  As with all things in the HPC, you are welcome to do any, all, or none of these challenges.  They are just a way to inspire your own magical crafting adventures.

And this weeks bean is...

It's a virtual hive of activity around here as Queen Bee pinkleo & I try to get the last of the semester's happenings done.  We've been busy as bee's on Quidditch, BINGO, and this last Bertie Bott's Bean.  You might say this last one of the semester is the bee's knees.  It's as sweet as honey.  In fact, it IS honey!  For this challenge you must craft as our industrious little friends do, and create something from flowers.  This can be made of actual flowers, dried flowers, or include something floral in the motif.  I'm so buzzed up about this one, that I have an entire list of lovely Craftster crafted examples. 

Create a Flower Crown with this awesome Tutorial
Cook up a batch of Lilac or Violet Jelly
Use some of summer's blooms to make a Pressed Flower Box
Crochet a Scarf of Roses to keep you remembering summer well into the autumn
Brew up some Dandelion Wine now to brighten your winter blues away
Try your hand at Coffee Filter Roses
Create the perfect touch for your Faire or Halloween nymph costume with a Poppy Mask
Hook up a Field of Daisies Afghan
Flower Power Earrings can brighten up your outfit
And why not a Daffodil Fused Glass Pendant to match?
Fabric Flower Hair Clips make lovely gifts for the young ones, or the young at heart

***Please forgive the bee puns.  I have a new student working for me and she is the undisputed Queen of Puns.  I blame her entirely.  Wink***

3325  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Shrine Swap - Sign ups CLOSED Send by 06/21/13 on: May 30, 2013 05:43:12 PM
I'm supposed to finishing an afghan right now, in order to mail it to it's new home, but somehow I decided that I could put "just one quick coat of paint" on my shrine pieces before crocheting.  Four coats and some stamping later, and that afghan is still sitting in an unused chair in my living room.  Sad Huh Smiley
