I can testify that your neice with an unusual name will love getting something personalised with it. I used to scour the racks of badges, pencils, stockers and keyrings in all the giftshops on all the school trips and days out with grandparents hoping to find something with the correct spelling of my name (Vikki - common name, but my parents used a weird spelling - or weird enough not to come on keyrings anyway).

As a "Jennie", I have the same problem.  Apparently no one in America spells it like this...  Oddly enough I have found my name spelled correctly on keychains in the UK...

stillatthehop: You need to upload photos to Craftster under "My Craftster" in the tape measure at the top of the page.  Posting a link to where the file is on your computer won't work.

Congratulations noodle-bug!  You're the first person to master not just one spell with Harry, but three.  That also means you're the first to earn the Protego Badge AND the Protean Charm Badge AND the Reducto Badge!

Mmmm.... All the shiny new-badgey goodness....

WhistleFish: Congrats on facing your fears!  Your hooded scarf came out great. Cheesy

noodle-bug: I love the new hats.  They somehow remind me of soft-serve ice cream cone swirls.  I'm curious to see what they look like on a head....
Also, I'd love to send you a holiday postcard!  I think I still have a sheet of stamps from when I was sending international postcards on Postcrossing.com, and I certainly wouldn't be upset if I didn't get one in return.  

MamanTattoo: Your Unicorn Yule Sweater came out beautifully.

Linakins: Welcome to Hogwarts!  Congratulations on getting over your fears!  The scarf came out great. Smiley

Naantje: Congratulations on your sweater!  

Moonflame: Your hexipuffs knitted through various states got me thinking, how fun would it be to create a patchwork-ish afghan with one square representing each state?  Not like an image of the state, but more like using 50 different crochet or knitting square patterns, and picking out colors & yarns that somehow represent it.  I know exactly what I'd use for my home state of NH, dark green for the forests, varigated grey-black for the granite in our mountains, a tiny touch of white for the snow, and an accent of lilac purple for our state flower & bird, the purple lilac and the purple finch.  Smiley  After the years I spent living in Illinois I'd have to use the orange & blue of University of Illinois (where I went to grad school), with some touches of yellow for the cornfields...

Pinkleo, someday I'm going to have to get over my fear of doing those crazy intricate squares you did in the Hogwarts afghan and do something with this idea.

And your soaps look wonderful!  I wish I could smell the spearmint.  I bet it's heavenly.

3300  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / ~*Detention in the Dungeons*~ on: November 30, 2013 12:56:05 PM
~*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 are worth 15 House Points and may be turned in anytime during the semester, regardless of what the newest Challenge is, up until the semester ends on February 28th.  (For example, you may turn in December or January challenges in February.)

December Challenge:
Prof. Slughorn has caught you trying to speed up the rate of your potion brewing by creating 7 magical blue-flame fires beneath the cauldron and bewitching your spoon to stir at the rate of nearly 60 miles per hour.  (A decision that resulted in your potion splattering the walls of his classroom, and setting your desk on fire.)  In an effort to teach you patience, Slughorn has given you detention in the Slow Brewing Potions Lab.  Grab your spoon and get ready to stir around and around.  At Muggle speed.  For this challenge you must craft something circular.

January Challenge:
While stopping in to ask Professor Binns a question, Professor McGonagall has caught you and Ron drawing pictures of Malfoy being eaten by mountain trolls on your parchment, instead of taking notes.  She insisted Prof. Binns assign you Detention!  Fortunately his detention consists of listening to him recite the same lesson over again, and Hermione has already taken notes on that one, so you're free to work on some more pressing homework!  Binns will never even notice.  For this challenge, you must complete a Work In Progress.

February Challenge:
Drat!  Professor Vector caught you sneaking out of the Common Room after hours to nick food from the Kitchens for a post-Quidditch game party.  As punishment she has tasked you with refilling all the inkwells in the Arithmancy department.  Without gloves.  Since your hands are going to be black with ink by the time you're done, you might as well craft something all black so you don't risk staining it.  For this challenge you must complete a craft that is entirely black.
