1  Re: ~*Harry Potter Craftalong ~ Yule Term 2019/2020*~ in Craftalongs by JS on: December 16, 2019 07:25:45 PM

Class/Challenge:  ~*Headmistress Challenges*~ Hogwarts Castle Challenge
House:  Ravenclaw
Project Name:  Wood Glasses Holder
Brief Description:
  I needed a stand for my readers.  Made from an angled piece of a tree limb, I debarked, debugged, and sanded this with an emery board for super smooth edging.  To add a touch of personality, a shimmery copper bowtie was added.  The slope of the wood keeps the readers in place.  I love the natural look of the wood grain.
Without this site and the wonderful crafters here, I would never have imagained doing something like this, or making something useful from a piece of fallen treelimb.  I now want to find another such scrap, and add more features - akin to a Mr. Potato Head with personification and accessories.  (It's all your faults!  And I love you for it.  Thanks for the inspirations, encouragements, and fun.)

It's so great that you two sent each other lip balms!  The books, treats, and crafty bookmarks are terrific. 

Here is the little free library ornament that ChameleonHound made for me on our Christmas tree:

I am still squealing!

Ludi that is an amazing package.  What a distinctive book!

I was fortunate to have the lovely ChameleonHound as my swap partner, and cannot contain my excitement at the package she sent.   Here is the loot fresh out of the box, and a sweet scenic card.  Such distinctive giftwrappings!

The books were wrapped in a map of New York, vintage sheet music, and a repo poster of a $500 mortgage bond:

I can't wait to delve into these!  They are all intrigueing.  CH made a lovely bookmark with "Practice random acts of kindness" on one side.

The flip side of the bookmark has a tranquil scene.  Perfect place to read.  CH made a cheerful bag with a colorful print of flowers and gardens.  It contained peanut butter cups, a giant maple leaf candy, and a huge peanut butter/chocolate fudge cup in a sparkly bag.  The bag's bow has a "I read banned books" button!  which is now on my lapel.

The gazebo hexagon box contained a fantastic handcrafted mini Little Free Library!  Squealalicious!!!  It is the perfect addition to our itty bitty scenarios on our Christmas tree.  Made of wood and twigs, just like our tree.  The detailing, the hinged door with magnetic closure and teeny doorknob, the books!  When I finish squealing, I'll snap a pic of it on our tree.

ChameleonHound, thank you so much for an amazing swap!  Your thoughtfulness shows in each item and detailing.  You have made this last big swap an awesome experience!

Class/Challenge:  Charms
House:  Ravenclaw
Project Name: Special Timepiece
Brief Description:  An up-close clock and side table area for SIL, who has health issues and needs things visible in a specific room.  Angling the clock from a low level will make it easier for her to see.  The clock has a photo of her granddaughters who are growing like weeds.  This is (another!) stained wood project from downed trees, and has metal legs.  This will be SIL's Christmas gift.

House:  Ravenclaw
Project Name:  History of Magic - Creative Christmas Tree
Project Page Link:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=459373.30
Brief Description:  "Craft something that evokes one of your memories that you would like to share with class."   This creatively shaped and crafted tree reminds me of childhood Christmases, with family members decorating the tree, house, and every available shelf and table.  No two tastes were the same.  The displays were an eclectic mix of old and new, religious and secular.

Although the decorating isn't finished on this project, the following pics will give an idea.  The top shelf will be Santa's workshop.

I put together this awesome tool cart that is intended for mechanics' tools.  It came unassembled, and will become the property of DS2.  These carts would be fantastic for storing craft gadgets and gizmos.

Thanks Abbeeroad!  Hopefully it will bring joy to MIL. Smiley

That HP kitten is the perfect mascot for this craftalong!

Class/Challenge:  Muggle Studies
House:  Ravenclaw
Project Name:  Yellow Mechanic Tool Cart
Brief Description:
Something yellow in color -- well this cart certainly screams yellow.  A bunch of parts came in a box with "assembly required" stamped on the outside.  After locating the correct tools and reading the directions, the pieces were nutted, bolted, and screwed together to become a functional cart on wheels.  There are some extra parts that I have no idea where they go lol.  I'm proud of myself for putting it together.  This will be for DS2, but I want one.  Or six.  Imagine the craft items that could be stored and locked away from those who grab fabric-only scissors to cut things.

FiberAlchemist, thank you for the Witch Weekly honor!

Project Name:  Herbology - Mounted Peavey
House:  Ravenclaw
Brief Description:  Option 4) Create something sturdy or lasting from wood.
Project Page Link:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=458368.422
A Peavey cant-hook (aka peavey or canthook or log dog) was mounted vertically into a sizeable piece of wood salvaged from a downed tree trunk, to make a sturdy lightpost. This project has a lot of heart in it, as well as lots of scraping, sanding, staining, and painting.  It will hold a lantern on the hook and optional decorations or packages.  The peavey tool is used in logging, and DH's multigreat grandfather invented/patented it.
