3311  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / ~*Headmistress Tower, Daily Prophet, Badge Station, CFCs*~ on: November 30, 2013 12:46:51 PM
~Headmistress pinkleo's Tower~ :::password: ice mice:::

Welcome new and old students!  As we settle into the Winter semester, I wanted to say a few words.  First, you will see me and Deputy Headmistress Mistress Jennie mention many times about how you do not have to craft ALL the classes and challenges.  This is because we don't want anyone to feel overwhelmed and not craft along.  I can tell you now that I, Headmistress pinkleo, will not be crafting everything in the Winter HPC; what I will be crafting is those classes and challenges that inspire me.  Furthermore, all that is needed to complete the semester and a HPC year is to post one project during the semester.  I sincerely hope you find this a comforting reminder and enjoy your crafting.  Second, you will find that we are a chatty bunch.  Don't let this intimidate or prevent you from posting.  Think of the HPC like stopping into the Three Broomsticks.  Pop in and chat about what's going on at the moment.  No one will be offended if you "skip" their projects during commenting.  We are all here to have fun and explore our crafty magic.  Further, please note that we participate in the Hogwarts tradition of House Points; House Points are explained in the first post of the HPC.  I hope you have fun this semester.  Take your time exploring the castle and all that's within; for your convenience, portkeys to various rooms have been added to the first post of this thread.  And if you ever have a question or problem, do not hesitate in sending an owl (aka PM) to me, pinkleo, AND Mistress Jennie.  I would like to leave you with some final words, and here they are: Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak! Thank you and blessed be.

3312  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / ~*Advanced Studies*~ on: November 30, 2013 12:46:04 PM
NOTE: Once you propose, please go forth on your Advanced Studies projects.  Your Examiners will PM if they have any inquiries.

~Everything O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s~
---Ordinary Wizarding Levels, OWLs, and Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests, NEWTs, are advanced crafting projects.  OWLs and NEWTs are supposed to be more complex and challenging projects.
---OWLs and NEWTs are more time-consuming than HPC classes and challenges.  There is no hard and fast rule on how many hours a project should take, because speed and difficulty levels are too subjective.  What we are really looking for is a project that will be a personal challenge to you.
---OWLs should take 3-4 weeks to complete.
---NEWTs should take more than a month to complete.
---Projects that do not take the allotted time of crafting will not be counted as complete; keep that in mind when you post your completed OWLs and NEWTs.  If you finish your OWL or NEWT earlier than expected, then craft an additional item(s) that correspond with your subject.  Add notes on how you finished earlier than expected and details about your additional crafting in your Completed Project post.
---You must propose your OWL or NEWT before starting so that we may be your cheerleaders and help encourage you during this more challenging craft adventure.
---You may only do 1 OWL & 1 NEWT at one time.  (Dont want you to be stuck with a ton of OWL & NEWT WIPs!)
---You may propose an OWL or NEWT any time during the semester.
---OWLs and NEWTs can carry over to the next semester.
---If you decide to abandon an OWL or NEWT project, notify your OWL Examiners, and they will erase that log from their records.  Once you have submitted to have an OWL or NEWT erased, you can propose a new one.


~*HOW TO COMPLETE AN OWL*~
1. Select which OWL you would like to complete.  You may only do one OWL at a time so select carefully.
2. Propose what you plan on doing for your OWL project.  You may do this by PM to your OWL Examiners or by posting in the HPC thread.  When making an OWL Proposal, please use the header below, and make sure you give details such as methods using, materials using, plan of action, timeline.  These details will help us cheer you on and inspire future OWLs.
3. Begin work on your OWL project.  Feel free to add progress pics in the HPC thread.
4. Once your project is complete, post a picture of your project in the HPC; make sure to use the OWL Header provided below.  Once you post a completed OWL, your OWL Examiner will notify the Headmistress, and you will earn your OWL Badge for that subject.
GOOD LUCK!!

~*House Pride & House Unity*~
You can turn in as many House Pride or House Unity projects as you wish.  These are projects inspired by one of the Hogwarts Houses.  House Pride would be projects representing your house, and House Unity would be projects representing the other houses or a combination of houses.  They can be inspired by house colors, mascots, founders, heads, past members, house ghosts, etc.  Note you will get House Points on only 1 House Pride and 1 House Unity project per semester.


~*Winter Classes*~
---Alchemy:: This semester we are continuing our studies of alchemy symbols.  Ponder the image of the green lion eating the sun. On a chemical level this is a metaphor for when a green, liquid sulfate called “vitriol” purifies matter, leaving behind the gold within the matter. Very pure vitriol is an acid that eats through practically anything, except gold.  Show your mastery of this stage of purification by either producing a green lion, something entirely gold in color, or anything 100% pure (i.e. 100% cotton).

---Apparition:  When apparating, it's important to know which direction you will be traveling in. For this term, we will be traveling north; how far north your journey goes is up to you - all the way to the pole, or to the northern edge of the Hogwarts grounds? Maybe to the town just north of yours. Once you have apparated there and back again, craft something inspired by what you saw.

---Arithmancy:: :::You head to Classroom 7A, fully expecting yet another term of Professor Vector's strict number projects.  To your surprise, you see a thin, tall man standing near the blackboard.  As everyone settles in their chairs, he speaks.:::  "Welcome to Winter Arithmancy!  I am Professor Lilthe.  As many of you know Professor Vector is taking this term off to help the Curse Breakers in Egypt as they explore the ancient cemetery of Abusir, so I shall be your Arithmancy teacher this Winter.  This term I want you to think of Arthimancy as something you apply to everyday life.  Without even knowing it, you are Arithmancers.  So close your eyes and think of a number, it could be your lucky number or the number of steps it takes you to get to your bed.  Whatever the number is, use your crafty magic to create your project.  Make sure to reveal your number and its significance to you when your turn in your homework."

---Astronomy: "I think you must have misheard Professor Sinistra, Europa's covered in ice, not mice." Europa is one of Jupiter's moons.  Its surface is composed of water ice and is one of the smoothest in the Solar System.  Europa was discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei and is named after a mythical Phoenician noblewoman, Europa, who was courted by Zeus and became the queen of Crete.  Show that you paid attention in Astronomy class, and create a project inspired by Europa.  Make sure your inspiration is clearly stated in your turn-in.  Also, for those unfortunate students who misheard Professor Sinistra, you are in luck; she happens to adore mice.

---Care of Magical Creatures (CoMC): Unicorn - Ministry of Magic Classification: XXXX - Status: Beast - Unicorn foals are born pure gold in color. They remain so until they are about two years old, at which time they turn silver in color. At around four-years-old their horn grows in. They are fully grown at seven years old, at which they turn a shade of pure white that is so bright that it makes freshly fallen snow look grey in comparison. Their hooves are golden, (remaining so from their gold stage), and their blood is silver-blue in color and shines under the moonlight.  Unicorns inhabit the forests of Europe, including the Forbidden Forest by Hogwarts.   Various parts of the Unicorn - the horn and tail hair in particular - are used in potions. Unicorn hair in general is used for the cores of wands. The tail hair can also be used as binding in bandages due to its incredible strength. The blood of a unicorn can be used to keep a person who is near death alive, but "you will have but a half-life, a cursed life, from the moment the blood touches your lips."  Study unicorns, and use your crafty magic to create something to show your knowledge of this creature.  You may focus on the unicorn as a whole or a specific part or stage of the unicorn.

---Charms: Professor Flitwick has just asked the class to step outside - although it is very cold outside no snow as fallen yet.  "I have a special trick to show you!" he says.  "Now that we have all become proficient in the Aguamenti charm, we can use the cold weather to do something new with it.  Point your wand up and away from everyone else, and cast the charm!"  As the whole class casts the charm, instead of jets of water, streams of snowflakes appear!  Cast the Aguamenti charm and have your craft include snowflakes, snow, or something else white and sparkly.

---Defence Against the Dark Arts (DADA): Often the first line of defense in battle,both magical and muggle, are the walls surrounding the building or grounds. However, practical defensive walls or magical barriers are often rather dull to live and work within between battles. Craft something to decorate a boring wall!

---Divination: :::As you enter the classroom, you are taken aback.  Webs are everywhere, and innumerous spiders have made themselves at home.:::  Don't fret dear students.  This Winter Term we are going to study Arachnomancy, the art of divining the future by intrepreting the patterns and behaviors of spiders.  Arachnomancers use spiders in different ways. Some study their webs to divine the future.  One example is the capturing of spiders in small boxes to see what type of web they would spin during the night; a thick web is a good omen.  Others use the position of their legs to foretell events.  For example, a spider with its legs bent inward is a bad omen.  Others use the appearance of spiders in their lives to divine events, such as finding a spider in your clothes means money or a letter is headed your way.  Walk around the classroom and observe the spiders.  Use them to create a project to display your understanding of Arachnomancy.  Your project may be a spider, something reflecting a spider's web, or a prophecy you received from observing your spider.

---Flying: Flying is one of the primary methods of magical transportation.  But it is wise to be familiar with all types of magical transportation when a broom or carpet is not at hand.  One popular mode of transportation is by Floo Network. The Network connects most wizarding households and buildings. To travel by Floo Network, one must have Floo Powder.  Floo Powder is a glittery, silver powder used by witches and wizards to travel through the Floo Network. This powder was invented in the 13th century by Ignatia Wildsmith.  The powder turns a fireplace's flames harmless and emerald green. It is tricky to use; one must toss a handful of powder into a fireplace connected to the Floo Network, walk into the flames, and state the desired destination loudly and clearly to ensure arrival in the proper location. Otherwise, one could end up at the wrong location.  Transportation by Floo Powder is much quicker than by broomstick, but slower than Apparition. However, unlike Apparition, one does not require a license to use Floo Powder.  Show that you have mastered traveling by Floo Network by creating a project that is either glittery, silver like Floo Powder, emerald green like the flames, or a container that can hold your Floo Powder.  Make sure your project clearly shows your understanding so your points arrive to the right place.

---Herbology: This semester we will be studying the properties of the plant Holly.  As you may know, holly is the plant the famous wizard Harry Potter had as his wand.  It is also used to celebrate the Yuletide season, in part because it's enduring green leaves and red berries symbolized continuing life and prosperity.  Ancient druids even wore crowns of holly on their heads!  To celebrate this festive plant your craft must include both the colors red and green.

---History of Magic (HoM):  This Winter, we are studying the Soap Blizzard of 1378.  This was a blizzard of soap that occurred sometime in 1378. This blizzard was followed by a burst of the wizarding economic bubble.  You may research this historical event by one of two paths.  You may research the blizzard of soap; if you choose this path, you must create something that uses (or is) soap.  Or you may research the burst of the economic bubble and create something that will help you save money during such tough economic times.

---Muggle Studies (MS):  Get ready students because this semester we are going to learn to cook the muggle way.  Everyone will find a copy of "Cooking the Muggle Way" by Professor Mordicus Egg at their desk.  Please peruse this book and find a recipe you would like to attempt.  Note, you may not use ANY magic whilst preparing your recipe.  Now for those of you not familiar with muggle cooking, I suggest you arm yourself with potholders, oven mitts, and burn salve.  To show you've experienced the art of muggle cooking, present either your successful dish along with full recipe or something that you used to protect yourself while attempting a muggle recipe, like potholders or aprons.  Best of luck!

---Potions:  Brewing potions can be tricky business.  It takes thorough knowledge of the "recipe",  accurate measuring, precise cutting and full attention while heating.  To show your understanding of the intricacy of brewing potions craft something from a detailed pattern, something that requires accurate measuring and/or cutting or something that must be "brewed" under a watchful eye.

---Study of Ancient Runes (SoAR): Wunjo - Joy, Hope, and Harmony. Wunjo is the rune of joy and of accomplishment. It wards off woe and sorrow so that the abundant gifts of the multiverse have no trouble bestowing themselves upon you. In Wunjo we find harmonious energies characteristic in functional families, group affiliations, healthy societies and nations and ultimately, the world. For your assignment, you must craft something that captures the joy and hope of Wunjo


---Transfiguration: Human to Toads - Fairy Tales The ability to transform a human into an animal of some sort is quite difficult. But when these spells are successful, the Muggles sometimes take notice. They have even concocted many stories surrounding these transformations, and have called them fairy tales. For your assignment, you must craft something inspired by these “Fairy Tale” Transformations.

3315  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / CLOSED: HP Craftalong ~Winter Semester 2013/2014~ on: November 30, 2013 12:19:56 PM
~Harry Potter Craftalong ~Winter Semester 2013/2014~

~*Began December 1, 2013*~
~*Ended February 28, 2014*~

The Winter Semester lasted 90 days.
34 Students were enrolled at Hogwarts.
634 Projects were Posted!!
That is an amazing average of around 7 projects a day and 18 projects per student!

Welcome to Hogwarts!
The Harry Potter Craftalong (HPC) is not your typical craftalong; we are gathered here to celebrate our love of crafting and the Wonderful World of Harry Potter.  In the HPC you will be completing classes and challenges with your skills in crafty magic.  These classes and challenges all have HP centered themes, but your crafts do not have to be “Harry Potter."  Your mission, as a student at Hogwarts, is to complete at least one class or challenge during this semester.  You may join any time during the semester.  I hope you join us; the HPC is a great way to stretch your crafty muscles, meet HP crafters, and have fun!


~*HPC PROJECTS*~
---The HPC is here to help us each finish projects and to explore new challenges as we better our crafting skills.  Prompts and guidelines are there to help stimulate creativity and growth; the size and complexity of the project submitted should reflect a level of personal growth and challenge over the time you spend in the HPC.
---Projects for the HPC should represent your best crafty skills.  Take pride in your work.  Classes and challenges should take a minimum of 30 minutes to make. 
---A project can only be submitted for one class/challenge (the same project cannot be entered in multiple categories) unless noted in prompt (it will be CLEARLY noted if allowed).
---Projects must be turned in within the timeframe designated by the type of assignment or challenge.
---For a project to be counted, it must have a picture or picture link included.  If your item is a private piece, you may submit a picture link to one of the headmistresses.
---There is SO MUCH to do in the HPC.  Do not feel like you have to craft everything.  Think of the HPC as a "Choose Your Own Adventure".  Craft what inspires you, but don't try to do everything and get burned out.  Keep in mind these wise words , "It does not do to dwell on lists and forget to craft." 


~*HOW TO TURN IN A PROJECT*~
For each assignment/challenge, use this header:
Class/Challenge/House Pride:
SPEW: (If your item is for charity, enter that here; if not leave blank or add n/a.)
House:
Project Name:
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.)
Project Picture:
Feel free to also include your house and any storycrafting you've created for your project.
---You can add more than one project to your post, but a header must be used for each project.


~*HPC FAQs*~
---How long is a semester?  Semesters are as follows: WINTER- December, January, February; SPRING-March, April, May; SUMMER-June, July, August; FALL-September, October, November.
---When can I join?  You can join anytime in the semester.
---Do I have to sign-up to join this craftalong? No, all you have to do is post in the thread a hi or completed project post.
---How do I complete a semester/earn my year? To complete a semester/year, you only have to complete one class or challenge during the semester.
---What timezone do we use?  We use Headmistress pinkleo's Central Timezone (Texas time).
---Do you sort me?  NO, you will decide which house you belong to, but you can only choose one.
---I have a problem or question; who can I ask?  You can send a Personal Message (PM) to Headmistresses Mistress Jennie AND pinkleo.  You can also ask specific questions to HPC staff.  And you can post your question in the thread; our students are very helpful!
---Can I turn in something I did earlier? With a very few exceptions the answer is NO!  You must complete your project during the current semester. Exceptions are Detention and OWLs; look for details about these projects in their information posts.
---Are we swapping? No, this is not an organized swap.  We are just encouraging crafting with a HP twist.  But if you enjoy swapping, keep an eye out for HP themed swap info in our thread.
---Do I have to craft all the classes and challenges? NO, you pick what you inspires you.  There is tons to choose from so choose your own HP Craft Adventure through the castle.
---What kind of projects are allowed for classes/challenges? If Craftster has a category for it, then it is a viable HPC project.  And since Craftster has a board for almost everything, your choices are vast.
---Does my craft project have to be Harry Potter themed? NO, if your item fulfills the class/challenge prompt, then it can be posted in the HPC.  Above all, we are here to encourage crafting.


~*House Points*~
~*Your triumphs will earn you points*~
Points System
15 points for a Class Assignment & Challenge*
100 points for OWLs
150 points for NEWTs
10 points extra for SPEW aka Charity Items

House Points Guidelines
--- *You cannot double dip for Class & Challenge points.  For example, if you turn-in a project for Herbology & Geminio, then you would get 2 badges but only 15 points for the project.
---You cannot get credit for a class or challenge twice.  For example, if you turn in 2 Alchemy projects, then you will only get points for the first one.
--- SPEW points are extra credit.  You can earn SPEW points for each project you turn in if it goes to charity.  You do not have to give the charity's name, just that you are donating to a certain cause.  (I happen to know that some Battered Women's Shelters don't like their names/locations posted.) SPEW projects must be clearly marked with SPEW to earn extra points.  I suggest adding it to your header.  Also, SPEW project can be turned in as stand-alone projects; they will earn 10 points.  Unlike most projects, you can turn in more than one SPEW project for points.
---HPC Challenge Points do not include House Challenges.  For Example, a Gryffindor Lion-along project would not count for points unless it also fulfills a HPC Class or HPC Challenge.
--- To determine House Cup Winner, an average from the points accumulated per house and the number of members per house.  If there is a tie, then more than one house will win the cup.  Note, a House Member is someone who has turned in at least 1 project.
--- Don't stress over House Points, but do craft your personal best. (This varies from person to person.  And I'm not really worried about "crafting your best" bit because HPCers are amazing crafters!)

Did I just get an actual "blimey" off a Brit?  I may have just bounced up and down in my chair a bit, clapping a little.  Maybe.

You must be driving your postman crazy with packages!

Actually, I have a little shipping label printer beside my desk so I don't have to go to the post office, and I drop all my envelopes straight into the blue mailbox on my way to work in the morning, so my lovely postman doesn't have to ever touch them!  Wink
