A new Detention Challenge has been posted!


Professor Trelawney caught you making up dreams to analyze in class, rather than keeping the dream journal that she assigned for homework.  Now she's given you detention polishing all the crystal balls and teacups in her classroom.  The problem is that the soft light from the candles, the warmth from the fireplace, and heavy perfumed incense that she burns have got you feeling all fuzzy brained.  For this challenge please craft something that delights the one of senses like incense does (can delight the tastebuds by baking, the nose by making a scented bath product, etc), or soothes the mind like warm firelight.

Remember, you can do any, all, or none of the Detention Challenges as they come up each month.  The goal here is always to be excited about our crafting!  Also please remember that you can submit ANY of the Detention Challenges at ANY time during the semester.  For example, you may turn in the October, November, or December's challenges in January.  Smiley

The Seven Challenge
December 1-31



It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. - Albus Dumbledore

Each and every one of us makes choices during our days, and throughout our lives.  Those choices, for good or for ill, define who we are and who we will become.  The choices we make can be a reflection of our past, and a mirror of what we want to be in our heart.  Over the course of 7 novels, J.K. Rowling showed us all that each choice matters, and that we are our best when we choose to act for love. 

In Arithmancy we learned that seven is the most powerful magical number.  There are 7 novels in the Harry Potter series, and children attend Hogwarts for 7 years of magical education.  Seven is the age by which most experts agree that magic will reveal itself in a witch or wizard child.  Harry paid 7 galleons for his wand from Mr. Ollivander.  There are 7 core classes at Hogwarts; 7 players on a Quidditch team; and the Marauder's Map shows 7 secret passages in and out of Hogwarts.  (These are only a small fraction of the times the number 7 is important in the Potter novels!)

For this month our challenge revolves around choices, and the magical number 7.  You may choose to complete 7 of the 14 challenge options below.  (You of course may choose to do none of these challenges!)  So, choose wisely, and show us who you truly are.
 
~Craft something for someone you love.
~Craft something to warm the heart of the recipient, or to warm the body!
~Craft something that sparkles or shines.
~Craft something for someone you have never met.  (Either art abandonment, or a donation to a charity, like a hat to the local women's shelter.)
~Craft something to share with a neighbor or to take to a holiday event like a party.
~Craft something in your (or one of your) very best mediums.
~Craft a decoration for a winter holiday of your choice, such as a Christmas ornament, winter wreath, or New Year's Eve banner.
~Craft something with paper as the primary medium.
~Create a food to celebrate any of the winter holidays. (And be sure to include the recipe.)
~Craft something that celebrates winter.
~Craft something that includes string, yarn, or ribbon.
~Craft something cheerful.
~Craft something small.
~Craft something huge and insane and over-the-top.

I received a lovely package from sheepBlue on Monday.  The first thing I opened was this adorable little mini hoopla!  How cute is it?  And the pom poms!  The POM POMS!!


And you have to see the back!  Check out the cute little sunflower there.  Cheesy


Next, something so unique, and so utterly sheepBlue.  A 'Ron's Emotional Range' Teaspoon ornament.  I love the addition of the sprig of greenery and ribbon.


And finally this Butterbeer Bottlecap pendant. Yeah, it's totally going on the tree too.  Cheesy


My apologies for the delay in posting.  Thank you so much sheepB!  I love it all.   Kiss Kiss Kiss

.....I happened to have a windfall of little doll hands and eyes that prompted this creation.

Only on Craftster would this be a totally normal thing to say.  Wink
