Note from the Headmistress...

This semester I will be offering extra Challenges.  Each Headmistress Challenge will be themed to the season, will last approximately 1 month, and will earn 15 House Points just like Classes.  So what is up next?

Headmistress Challenges - MAY
Feeding the Castle!
May 1st - 31st


Food figures prominently in the Harry Potter novels. We hear new announcements from Dumbledore during the Start-of-Term Feast, and have cozy afternoon teas with Hagrid on the weekends.  There are happy family meals with the Weasleys during the summer holidays, and trips to Honeyduke's to load up on sweets during term.  Students rest and gossip over dinner in the Great Hall, teachers socialize over drinks at the Three Broomsticks, and Fred & George nick snacks from the House Elves in the Kitchens. Clearly, food is as important in the Wizarding World as it is in the Muggle World. For this challenge you must submit a complete recipe, inspired by the world of Harry Potter.  THIS DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A FOOD THE STUDENTS EAT IN ONE OF THE BOOKS!  You are quite welcome to try your hand at a familiar recipe like Mrs. Weasley's Onion Soup, or a cool refreshing batch of Pumpkin Juice.  But you can also make something inspired by a favorite scene, magical object, character, etc.  We all know that chocolate helps ease the symptoms of a Dementor attack, so how about making a Triple Chocolate Cake?  Can't get enough Quidditch?  Make up some Golden Snitch Cookies.  Love the scene in the Cave from Half-Blood Prince?  Why not make some Glowing-Green Potion Candy?  (Magpirate, why do I think this one has your name all over it?) If your favorite character is Mad-Eye Moody, why not honor his memory with some Firewhiskey Pork Chops?  

Just remember to explain your inspiration in your post if it isn't immediately clear, and be sure to post a complete recipe with a photo!



For more inspiration, be sure to check out the Harry Potter Recipe Thread here on Craftster, as well as some of the many fun HP inspired projects on Bakingdom.  And for those of you who are vegan, check out Dumbledore's Vegan Army which is full of fun recipes!

Please note you are welcome to do any, all or none of these challenges as they come up throughout the semester.  They are not intended to cause stress, but are instead intended to get your crafty Muses singing.  None of the HPC staff will complete ALL the classes and challenges posted this semester.  So relax, and craft what you eat.

The first of two serious notes from the Headmistress....

As you will have seen above, I have just finished tallying House Points.  And, as I have mentioned previously, this is a very big job require a great deal of time and organization.  (I use 7 different tabs in 3 windows when tallying!)  This is not a complaint on my part, simply a fact.  The HPC is a wonderful place that we all enjoy, and I am more than happy to keep running it so that we can all continue to enjoy it. 

However, anything this large and complex obviously requires rules and regulations to keep it running smoothly.  And sometimes it seems that we must all have a reminder of the rules. 

If you are posting more than one project at a time (which is AWESOME btw), please post them in alphabetical order by Subject*.  This makes awarding House Points much easier on me darlings!  And it reduces the risk that I could miss a project when updating points.  You can see from the screen capture of my desktop this morning, just how big the House Points Spreadsheet is.  In fact, I had to zoom out very far just to get *most* of it in the frame.  When being viewed normally, I can only see a portion of a single House and some of the subject columns at a time.



*"But Mistress Jennie, I can never remember what to do about Bertie Bott's Beans, Detention projects, and Headmistress Challenges!  Should I just throw them in wherever?"

Answer: No. All Bertie Bott's Beans, Detention projects, and Headmistress Challenges (no matter the flavor or month) should be listed under B, D & H respectively.  For example, let's say you were submitting projects for Potions, March's Detention, Alchemy, Aprils's Headmistress Challenge, Defense Against the Dark Arts, and the Bertie Bott's Red Apple Bean, you would list them like this:
 
Alchemy
Bertie Bott's Bean - Red Apple
DADA
Detention - March
Headmistress Challenge - April
Potions

If you find you have trouble remembering this, I will be posting a link to this post in the first post of this thread, so you can easily reference this post at any time.

And I just received from alteredmommy!  AM noticed that I have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to the fact that I want to live in the Burrow from Harry Potter.  So she made me my very own Burrow!  The house is made from handmade papers and according to AM, lots and LOTS of glue.  Cheesy







If you look at the windows, they have a glazed texture, that reflects light like glass!




This picture is my attempt to show the depth of the piece.  The shadowbox is nearly 2" deep!


Thank you so much alteredmommy.  I love my Burrow and can't wait to hang in on my wall of Craftster art in my studio!  It will be truly treasured.   Kiss Kiss Kiss

Class: Arithmancy
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name & Link: The Awesome Star Chandelier

Brief Description: This was most definitely a project that I was unsure of the outcome when I started.  I recently participated in the Be Awesome (Redux) Swap with the lovely alteredmommy.  I really wanted to get out of my comfort zone and try something completely different for me.  Alteredmommy told me to go crazy with whatever my new idea was, which was both freeing and terrifying, as I'm usually quite a planner.  I like sketching out my idea, writing lists, ordering supplies, and knowing exactly what I'll be doing.  This project really didn't work out that way.  While I did do some research into other mobiles and chandeliers, it was much more of an organic process than I'm used to.  There are tons more details on the project post.
Project Picture:



Challenge: Detention - April
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name & Link: Natural Face Washes

Brief Description: I just ran out of the last batch of this face wash that I made back in February.  Last time I made half a batch because I was worried about using it all before it would go bad.  Since DH has sensitive skin too, this time I made a whole batch, and divided it between two containers, adding the essential oils individually.  I did lavender oil for myself, and bergamot oil for DH which should help with his slightly oily skin.  I also used grapeseed oil this time, instead of olive oil and added in some vitamin E oil.  Both smell amazing.
Project Picture:



Challenge: Headmistress Challenge - April
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name & Link: Celestial Wine Charms

Brief Description: The sun and clouds full of rain showers help plants grow, so my submission for this month's challenge is a set of Celestial Wine Charms.
Project Picture:



Class: Muggle Studies
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name & Link: Beauty and the Beast Wine Charms

Brief Description: My dear friend Jessica is planning a Disney vacation, and has been Pinning ideas for outfits to wear while she's there, places to see in the parks, and moments from her favorite Disney flicks.  While I'm not really a big fan of Disney, her Pins keep coming up in my newsfeed on Pinterest, and I found myself singing "a tale as old as time...", otherwise known as the self-titled theme to Beauty and the Beast.  That inspired both a new charm bracelet (which is *nearly* completed and will be submitted soon) and a set of wine charms!
