I love that journal!!  Shocked

Tamalama asked me to post pictures for her so here's what I sent:

Snape poppet!

His Dark Mark

Doubles as a Zorg poppet! lol

A shopping bag to carry all her books.

And matching back wands for her and the poppet, but the picture didn't turn out. :/

Thanks again for swapping with me Tamalama. Just know I think you're pretty amazing. Smiley

I received a participation package at the end of last term. Whistlefish sent me a whole stash of goodies to keep my creative switch turned on. Thank you so much!!

There is truly too much here to list before I leave for work, but I love this stash to pieces! The colors are just right, and the prince and princess stamps are so cute!!! Thank you <3

Tamalama is the best ever, and sent early!! I was so surprised to get her package, and even more-so once I opened it. She absolutely spoiled me!!

First, there is the awesome plaque for Ravenclaw, which I adore. 2 fantastic necklaces, one with a raven and one with a winged key. 2 ravenclaw charm bracelets (which I particularly asked for, and they definitely get an E!). Candy from honeydukes, stickers to label my dangerous potions. A stock of potions to keep me going while I learn to brew more. A stash of about a million magnets ( <3 ) and notes from Gringotts and a few galleons so I can go shopping.

Thank you so much for this thoughtful package!!

I think my partner forgot to post pictures.  I only have my crummy backup one, but here you go!

I sent tamalama a bookmark with her favorite quote on it. I also sent a copy of my favorite book so that she would have something to use it with: First Test by Tamora Pierce.

Thanks for the awesome swap!!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
House: Ravenclaw
Ravenclaw Extra Credit: Charms
Project Name: Repurposed candles
Brief Description: I took my old candles, melted them down in my crockpot, and poured them into new jars! I learned 3 things from this experience. 1st, make sure that the water in the crockpot is at the same level as the shortest candle's wax. Any higher and it might tip over, causing little wax particles to stick to the inside of your crockpot. (a bummer to clean!) 2nd, crayons do NOT use the same type of wax, and can cause little weird clumps, so if you want to use them for coloring, just use a small amount. I also used dollar store crayons, so it is possible that other crayons would work better. 3rd, make sure each layer is all the way cool before pouring the next layer. Even if it is mostly cool, the new hot wax can remelt the top cooled layer and then mix with the layer underneath. I used scents that were all complimentary (all baked goods scents!) so it wasn't much of a problem for me. All the same, after I noticed that I put the candles into the fridge in between layers, and that totally worked.

Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Onion Bean!
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Ravenclaw nails
Brief Description: I layered 5 layers of paint on each of my nails, of course in ravenclaw colors! First the base colors, then the glitter, and finally a topcoat. Also, my nails normally only last 24 hours before starting to chip, but this time I am 36 hours in and going strong! I even hand washed dishes yesterday, so there is definitely something to be said for using many layers.

The colors I used (Look! The blue glitter is called Wool Knit!)

House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Salad Jars
Brief Description:
I love salad and have been trying to eat healthier...but I don't like to make a fresh salad every time! Plus, it would just be too hard to carry all of the supplies on our camping trip. Wink So I prepped these salad jars to bring with. I used dressing, carrots, radishes, a couple small heirloom tomatoes, spinach leaves, and parmesan cheese. This is my first time making salad jars, so I read up about them online first. Supposedly the acidity of the dressing should help to soften and sweeten the radishes and the carrots before I eat them. I hope it's true! Cheesy

I had to transfigure the jars in order to put the salads somewhere. I need practice though, because the jars didn't all end up looking the same. Sad

Class: CoMC
Ravenclaw EC: CoMC
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Avatar the Last Air Bender Moon and Ocean Spirits
Brief Description:
I have always been inspired by the hoop in this post. So I decided to make one of my own! All of the supplies came out of my stash, but I am actually glad that I used the fabric I did. I freehanded the picture, basing it off of some images online, and the pen didn't wash out like I thought it would. Because the fabric is a little crazy with all the blues, you can't tell easily (or so I tell myself!) I tried for a very strong Yin/Yang shape.

For this project, I was inspired by the Jobberknolls to use the blue fabric, and the spirits for the pattern.
