41  Re: HP Craftalong ~Winter Semester 2013/2014~ *JOIN ANYTIME* in Craftalongs by Mamaneedles on: December 14, 2013 11:54:37 AM
Class: History of Magic
House: Gryffindor &Daughter Inc.
Projet Name: Soap Snowman
Desc: We grated dove soap bar to make snowballs. But the fun didn't stop there! We shaped lovely snowmans, and once that done, we couldn't stop there either. I took out my beads supplies and here's the result:

I love how my daughter used buttons to make a necklace for the "mother" and flowers to make a crown!


AD- I can't wait to see that, the ornaments are gorgeous.
Badwulf- I love the pattern you used, and clever choice of color

Thanks for the congrats on being featured! I wonder how they'll like our snowman soaps!

Class: Muggle class
House: Gryffindor
Projet name: Quick vegan pasta sauce
Desc. And recipe:
I can't believe how complicated muggles can be!! I had to use a weird thingy called "can oppener"...twice!!!
The stove is a weird thing aswell... It burns, but there's no fire in it!

Shop half an onion, two carrot, two celeri and half a red bell pepper. With a knife. By hand.
Turn the fancy button of the stove-top to the middle-fire. If your spiral thingy turns red, it's too hot.
Pour olive oil into your big cauldron, on the stove-top spiral thingy that burns without fire. (the cauldron, not the oil!)
Drop your shopped veggies and stir.
Take the can oppener. Be carefull, there's a round blade. you musn't put your finger there!
After figuring out how it works, open a big can of tomato sauce and another big can of diced totatoes. Pour both over the veggies. By hand.
Drop about a cup of red lentils.
Seasons to taste... Pinch of rosemary, marjolaine, pepper, sugar, etc. Remember, by hand always.
Stir once in a while.
You may want to lower your spiral-thingy heat at that point.

It takes about half an hour, depending on how crunchy you like your veggies.



DragonChilde: I will continue with Whistle fish and have you make her a FOX book/journal-cover. That way she can keep using the foxfur into a practical thing over and over again!!!

Whistlefish: Your daughter is so precious! I love her hairs!

Linakins: I'm sorry for your daughter! Hope she recovers well :S

Acadian Driftwood: What a neat idea! Why haven't I ever thought of making those? they are so cool and YAY for Quidditch! We have a tie!!!

Tonight, after putting all 3 kids to bed at the same time (yeah, really!!!) I had the urge to 1. take out the recycling and composting bin by the road for tomorrow's pick-up and 2. Walk to the mailboxes across the street. And guess what? beautiful package awaiting!!!

I even haven't oppenned it yet that it smelled wonderful.

Brace yourself:

I awed, and I owed and then I huged it.

But then I oppenned the other package:

!!!!!!!!!! She just has the perfect expression on her face! I will cherish it endlessly!

Her new home to protect my kitchen, for everyone to see!

The card and the lavender smelling soap. Both lovely, lovely things!!

Thank you so much Ludi!!!! I'm having a major swap anxiety now!

Linakins- Yay! another flying homework done! The cards are cute.

Dragonchilde: Toe-up, so I wouldn't stress about having enough yarn!

Abbee: Cheesy

Avesthel: This is a pretty scarf.

JellyBean: I LOVE ragrugs (I tried writing a heart but this keyboard won't let me...)

House: Red and Gold all over.
Go-to play dough recipe
Desc: This is the kind of stuff you always need to have on hand. It can turn a terrible too-much-energy kid moment into a delightly calm play in an instant. Here's our stove-brewed play dough recipe:

2 cups wheat flour
1 cup salt
3 teaspoons tartar cream
3 tablespoons oil
2 cups water
You may also want natural colorant, food dyes, essential oils, essences and extracts.

Mix everything in you cauldron and cast a mild fire under it. Stir with your wand until it's smooth. It takes about 5 minutes, but you need to stay and stir or it'll burn and won't be homogenous. Let it cool. Once cool, you can add colorant and scent and mix it in!

Pictured: The Green one had spearmint extracts. Unfortunately my son peed in it the day I made it!
The blue one had geranium EO. Had, because Son broke the jar, with the dough in it, the same day!!
The undyied white one was my favorite. I put vanilla extract and it smelled so wonderfully! but I said was because:
it was merged with the purple one, wich now smells of vanilla-lavender (EO). Still I love it.
And the pink one as orange essence in it. It's slowly becoming brown, because of contact with purple Tongue

and yes, baby Victor is a week shy of 6 month old. I can't beleive it either!

Naantje: I LOVE the tree and the animals! You should have made a unicorn for the CoMC too!! ahah! And congratulations on being the first to return the flying assigment! (it's my class, you know Wink the design is very effective Smiley

Dragonchild: Knitted dishcloths are the best. today I got away with a HUGE ball of cotton that was in a donation box, I will make tons of them with it. I JUST learned to knit socks, and I love them, see:

Class: Alchemy
House: Go Lions!!
Project name: UNICORN FARTS SOCKS!!!!!
Project link: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Andreann/toe-up-knee-high-socks-for-young-children
Desc: Well you all saw the amazing yarn that Abbeeroad dyed and sent me last Back to Hogwarts round. I finally finished turning them into socks. They will be stuffed in my daughter's stocking, of course!!! I LOVE them. First time knitting socks, and two at a time, at that!! There's some leftovers so I think I'll knit a pair for Victoria, her dolly. (why, yes, in my house there's a human baby and a doll almost named the same). It's 100% wool, and 100% happyness!

Class: Herbologie
House: Gryffindor
Projet: The button wreath
Desc.: It might not look like a 30 min. project but I assure you that with the "help" of a 5 and a 3 year old, it did take that amount of time!!

Houfflepuff WINS!!

complementary to this, anyone can catch the snitch each challenge by making something totally related to quidditch. Ex: like a knitted snitch hat, a team sweater or a quidditch field cake. It gives 150pts
The snitch can be caught multiple times during the match and does not end the game!

Anyone can mark a goal OR send a bludger by making a house-related item, of any house.
marking a goal gives 10pts to your supporting team, sending a bludger take off 10pts from the team you do not support.

Quidditch points do not count as house points. You can, however, submit them with another class and get the points from that class.

I'm working with the Head of House to make the finals match count, thought!

You choose your teams in the 2 that are matching up for the current week. A griffindor can support the slytherin team, even on the gryff vs. slyth weeks. Let's get flying! UP!

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.
