So many great projects and stories, living in a boat, amazing, and becoming an aunt! Lots of happy news. I also enjoy looking at all the different projects, now that I'm feeling like I'm not too behind on my studies I hope to be able to return a little more to the land of crafts.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Floo bermuda triangle
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Bee mandala
Brief Description: I've wanted to make some easy art lately but I don't have time to sit and draw so I decided to make a quick-ish mandala inspired by bees. I like this so much I think I'll use it in a paper cutting project in the future.

Thank you for the lovely comments.

 I will join this semester even though it's going to be a lot of stress, at least I have a plan and know what to expect over the next few months, which I didn't have during the last semester where annoying and stressful stuff bombarded me and I was left not knowing what would happen next. I did make one tiny thing and I wanted to share it, but every time I was "ready" to take a picture and share it life handed me a wheelbarrow of lemons.

That is an amazing average of around 2.6 projects a day and 14.6 projects per student! Shocked

Such an amazing count, so happy to see so many projects being posted! I've followed this topic from the sideline and have been amazed by all the lovely crafts posted.

I wished I had participated but life just wouldn't cooperate, will try to join the new semester, even though I know the whole semester timeline will be during my hectic timeline.

ShiningStar that is smart, and I do make sure I'm logged in, the problem is  that I think it's been 4+ years since I saw that video, and I watch a lot of videos on youtube. usually now whenever I find something I find interesting I add it to one of multiple hidden playlists so I can find it later without looking through my neverending history list, which contains both stuff I do like and stuff I don't like (and let's not forget all the stuff my son watches whenever he's using my computer)

Thanks to everyone for the lovely comments.

It did take a long time to put it together, and creating all those details, but it was also rewarding. Not only was it calming, but I also learned a few things that will make my next giant gingerbread house slightly easier to create.

And to answer craftylittlemonkey's question, that lattice work was inspired by a youtube video I saw years ago, this man was making a wedding cake with this kind of detail, it was amazing to watch (sadly I haven't managed to find the video as I can't remember what it was called). The trick is to add more powdered sugar to the royal icing until it is hard enough so it can form a long thread without breaking, but not so dry it won't stick to itself, then it's just a matter of slowly piping it in thin air before attaching it to the curve above.

Most of December was stressful for me, and I hadn't planned to participate in this challenge, but ended up doing it as therapy, and it worked.

I present to you my Gingerbread Bakery Dollhouse, because I can't have a real dollhouse just yet.

How could I make a cute bakery and not add a cute scooter?

My son was the proud creator of the cake next to the cash register, it was his third attempt, the first two being way too big for this house.

In the bakery there is a round table with chairs, and a three tier cake stand with cookies, macarons and a Swedish princess cake.

By the window there are three shelves. On the top shelf there are small baguettes, croissants and some pastries with cream on top. On the second shelf there are three different kinds of doughnuts, vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. On the third shelf I made napoleon cakes on a stand, a white wedding cake and croquembouche.

The second floor is dedicated to the bedroom. The bed and rug were both hand painted with food colour, and the vanity has a lot of tiny details, a vase with roses, hair brush, mirror, vintage perfume and nail polishes.

7  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Kid Christmas Swap (sign up: Nov. 9-Nov 15, Send out Dec 18th) on: December 26, 2017 02:51:35 PM
I hope everyone has had a great time with their loved ones and the new year will be kind to you all. Everyone has recieved their package and I left feedback, but sadly I made a few mistakes so we have apparently also participated in a key themed swap, and some have even done this swap twice (I messed up the signing up date in the beginning), I did open a ticket so it will all be fixed, maybe even before the end of the year.

I would like to thank everyone for making the swap such a great one for the kids, my son enjoyed both making and receiving and I'm sure he would love participating in another kid swap in the future.

So many wonderful crafts!! I'm so proud of every child that has participated, so glad that we were able to put together something for them before Christmas.

I've been swamped a week now (this is why I really needed a co-organizator) but I'll fix all the swapping status tomorrow once I'm back from work.

The stitching was great, my son's stitching on the other hand... it can't really be called stitching XD
