11  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Harry Potter inspired carved stamp on: January 25, 2016 07:43:22 AM
For the Harry Potter craftalong I made a participation "badge" for a Slytherin Scavenger Hunt.  I carved a stamp and then colored each with prismacolor pencils and ink details!  It was so much fun.  I'm kinda addicted to it now.  I keep wanting to find more reasons to make stamps!

The Stamp block


The stamp:

I'm going to use the block again for other years so I didn't include the "15" in my design...
12  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Owl Lamp Repaint on: January 25, 2016 07:36:20 AM
I bought a white owl lamp at walmart.  Booorrring! So I repainted it to match my room and I painted and beaded up a lampshade to go with it.

After Painting:

13  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Snow White Thomas Kinkade on: January 25, 2016 07:28:28 AM
This is my first solid counted cross stitch that I have ever done!  I have worked little ones (not solid) before so I am pretty happy that I finished this one.  It is 5x7.  And I think that I've got that french knot thing down now!  Grin Cheesy

14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Corset, Skirt and Apron for a Wedding on: January 25, 2016 07:10:41 AM
So my sister asked me to officiate her wedding last November.  She wanted to have a Celtic/Fall theme so I made an outfit to wear.  She loved it and I made the apron so that she could have it as a keepsake. (Shirt is bought)  I drafted the corset pattern myself.  It was a little too large and I wasn't as happy with the bust line as I wanted to be but it was cute!

15  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / scrap paper christmas cards on: January 25, 2016 06:52:53 AM
Over the past holiday season I made Christmas cards for all of my friends, family, and Harry Potter Craftalong pals!  I challenged myself only to use paper from my massive bag of scraps.  I swear I don't seem to throw away any paper that is even remotely large enough to cut a shape from.  Grin  So the bag had lots to choose from!




(I free hand drew and cut all the pieces! No die cut things here!  And I also added stickers and stamps from my stash!  (I tried using some old rub-on snowflakes that I had...but it was a disaster!  I gave up and went back to stickers....lol!)
16  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Versatile Vegan Quiche on: January 23, 2016 04:53:18 PM
I made my first vegan quiche when the snow set in this week!  It was super yummy but next time I think that I'll add a little extra salt and then play with the flavor profile a bit. I think that I'll try adding chili powder and cumin.  And maybe I'll try another time with pine nuts and Greek seasoning, topped with little dollops of tofutti cream cheese!  

Recipe:Versatile Vegan Quiche

I used collard greens instead of spinach, and then added thawed, chopped, frozen broccoli.  And I went crustless.  It was good!  It didn't come out of the dish so pretty when it was still hot, but after it was chilled it a came out beautifully.  It reheats in the microwave well too!  So I've had quiche for breakfast for a few days!  Such a treat!

17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Rock Chip Jewelry and Stash beads on: January 19, 2016 06:09:14 PM
I have a ton of strings of various rock chips in my stash.  I finally decided to make gifts for people this Christmas.  These are the necklaces and bracelets that happened





and a Valentine's one for myself
18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Word Bracelets on: January 19, 2016 06:04:07 PM
 Had a TON of these typewriter letter key looking beads hanging around in my stash.  Some I had made into bracelets already but they were way too small for anyone to wear.  Over the holidays I let my mom raid all of my built up jewelry projects for anything she would like to have.  I have more than I will ever wear and some isn't even my style...I just had fun making it.  Well, she came across these too small bracelets and asked me to redo them to be big enough to actually wear.  It's a project long in the making.  I had a good time revamping some of these into cool "cuff" bracelets!

19  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Slytherin Snack Archive on: July 14, 2015 03:23:56 PM
This will be a place where all the past Slytherin Snacks posted on the Harry Potter Craftalong will be retired after they have been featured in the Slytherin Common Room.

All of these recipes are either vegetarian or vegan, will a heavy emphasis on vegan fair.  (I am slowly transitioning to veganism.)

I hope that these are super yummy for everyone who tries them.   Grin
20  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Abstract Zodiac w/Watercolors (Picture Heavy!) on: March 29, 2014 07:33:11 PM
I've been working on this series pretty steadily for just at a year now.  I am taking a break for a bit to let myself get reinspired.  Hopefully sharing the ones I have finished will help.  

I have designed all 12 of the zodiac with zentangle designs and am halfway through painting them with watercolors.  So far I have finished 6.  Three are 6x6 and three are 9x12.  (When they are all finished I will have four 9x12, four 6x6, and four 8x8.)

So in order Aquarius, Pisces, Virgo (all 9x12) and Aries, Cancer, Gemini (all 6x6)







And FINALLY the last 6:

Taurus, Capricorn, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Leo (I don't know why some are smaller...I'll come modify the post later when I figure that out)
