Project Name: Beeswax Candles
Brief Description: My great-grandma always tried to pass on some of the things she did when she was a kid. She taught me how to harvest her beeswax and make candles and other items. I had a lot of beeswax from different hives that she collected just sitting around so I made a bunch of candles I even made up a bunch of the wicks when I ran out. I also reused mason jars and tealight tins just like she would have done.

Project Name: Eggrolls & Sauce
Brief Description: One of my favorite memories is eating eggrolls. I lost my favorite Chinese restaurant last year, (to retirement,) which was super accommodating and kept "safe" eggrolls for me on hand and made them up for me. (I am allergic to pork, fish, & shellfish & my husband is allergic to alliums- onions, garlic, shallots, etc. Hard to find "Safe" food we both can eat) So finding a place in our area that we can get food is extremely difficult. I miss them so much. I gave making baked eggrolls a shot with my own sweet & sour sauce. They turned out pretty good. Will have to make some more tweaks, but encouraging.

Project Name: Jello shots
Brief Description: I made these jello shots for a little party we had. They went over well, but we had to warn people. Usually, jello shots don't really get you drunk unless you eat a ton of them, for some reason, these knocked you on your butt! I have never seen that many people who were so surprised at how drunk they could get off of a jello cube. They were really tasty though. Apple cider, peach jello, and our friend's homemade cinnamon whisky.

Project Name: Grey stretchy hat
Brief Description: It's freaking cold out! My SIL likes the love your melon hats, but she wanted one in wool. I don't knit (well,) so I'm experimenting with a stretchy crochet hat. I like this one. It is slouchy, but you can't really tell because I had a high bun tucked under it at 2 am.

Project Name: Bowl Cozies
Brief Description: Last year I made us some bowl cozies, well as the year went on people saw ours and asked for their own, so I have made bowl cozies for my boys and my mother-in-law (still have a few more to make, but those will probably be for mother's day/birthdays as I ran out of time)

Project Name: Mini Crochet Duck hat
Brief Description: With our Advent calendar we had to take our ducks with us one day. Well, my duck, Anka, was not pleased with the 13 degrees and refused to leave the house without a hat. So I crocheted her a hat. She still wasn't loving the cold, but I could at least get her to leave the house so we could make it to our party.

Project Name: Crochet Hat
Brief Description: We have a family that we sponsor all year (food, gifts, school supplies, etc.) and the mom said the daughter loves harry potter and especially slytherin, but doesn't like to wear obviously harry potter stuff (she doesn't want to get teased  Sad ) So I crocheted her a slytherin colored hat. I'm still debating if I should add a grey fur pom pom on top or not. But I'm quite happy with it. (sorry the colors are a bit off I'm in a hotel room with  no great light for pictures, it really is green & grey)

Project Name: Harry Potter Advent Calender x3
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=453812.new;topicseen#new
Brief Description: Every year we do an "Advent" calendar/countdown calendar with activities & little treats to bond us as a family and to be positive influences on the world. Well, this year 2 of my children moved out. I figured it was the end of the tradition, but the boys all insisted that we find a way... enter this year's Harry Potter Advent calendar. I made up 3 swags of mismatched socks. The activities are a bit simpler than in earlier years, but with everyone so busy I wanted it to be doable. The entire calendar is posted on the link above

7  Harry Potter Advent Calendar in Winter Holidays by Ezri_B on: December 01, 2017 08:25:39 AM
Every year we do an "Advent" calendar/countdown calendar with activities & little treats to bond us as a family and to be positive influences on the world. Well, this year 2 of my children moved out. I figured it was the end of the tradition, but the boys all insisted that we find a way... enter this year's Harry Potter Advent calendar. I made up 3 swags (2 pictured) of mismatched socks. The activities are a bit simpler than in earlier years, but with everyone so busy I wanted it to be doable.

Here is what we're doing;

1. Let's start off our advent fun by trying to be the perfect house-elf. Do something good for someone without them finding out.
2. Professor Slughorn has been brewing again. Here's some Felix Felicis, know you'll have good luck all day long. (Forgot a picture of this, but it is ginger ale with some shimmer dust swirled in, inside of a glass bottle with a cork stopper)
3. Time to get your creative juices flowing. Let's make up new Christmas carols. Work together, work alone, up to you. In the next week text the new song to the rest of the family. Extra points if you send a video of you singing it.
4. Congratulations! Just like Harry you've caught the golden snitch! It feels pretty good, doesn't it? Spread some of that joy by making a special effort to smile & compliment others today.

5. Today we will dip into the Pensieve. Text your favorite memory from 2017 to the family.
6. To celebrate Rubeus Hagrid's birthday, enjoy festive garden gnome shaped candies.

7. Defense against the dark arts- what would your Patronus shape be? Text a pic, drawing, or words to the family.
8. Dementors have been spotted in the area. Hand out this chocolate to help those who have succumbed to the sadness and irritability.

9. In honor of the sacrifices Dobby has made it is now traditional to exchange socks. Wear these socks & remember to selflessly help others for good as Dobby did.

10. We're practicing for the next Triwizard Tournament with this team scavenger hunt. Babes vs. Geezers. Find the items on the list and snap pictures. Text the pics to the family. You're working with your partner. First team to complete the list wins.
11. Zonko's Joke shop is always looking for some new material especially around Christmas. Text your favorite Holiday joke to the family. Here's one to get you started;
What does Santa suffer from when he gets stuck in the chimney?
Claus-trophobia
12. It's Charlie Weasley' s birthday today. Here's some dragon jerky to celebrate.

13. Remember how happy Ron was when he collected all of that Leprechaun gold? Over the next day or so place this dollar somewhere for someone to find it.

14. "Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic" -Albus Dumbledore
Write a card to someone telling them how important they are to you. Text the family a pic of you at the mailbox when you send it.

15. Christmas cookie bake-off- over the next few days bake some cookies/treats to share at our Christmas on the 22nd. Traditional, crazy, creative, your choice. Prize for the favorite.
16. Let's help Arthur Weasley answer his question "what is the purpose of a rubber duck?" Take this little friend with you today and snap pictures as you and he/she contemplate the purpose of a rubber duck. Don't forget to name your friend.

17. Snowmen are magical creatures, but as Hagrid knows the snow isn't always cooperative. Make a small clay snowman to add to the family's collection.

18. Molly Weasley gathered the family by the radio to listen to her favorite singer, Celestina Warbeck. What is your favorite Holiday song? Find it on YouTube and send a link to the family.
19. Tis the season for mistletoe, kissing, & spreading cheer. Just beware of Nargles!

20. The sweet cart left some Bertie Botts beans for you. Let us know the best and worse flavor you got. You may even want to share some.

21. St Mungos has released a new book of home remedies. Here is a simple Pepper-up recipe to keep your spirits up. Prepare some hot chocolate as directed. Stir with magic swirled cane 7 times clockwise, more for hard cases.

22. "Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only my remembers to turn on a light" -Albus Dumbledore
On this longest of nights let us gather together and light our candles & remember to be the light for those who can't.

23. Divination class- text us your predictions for 2018.
24. If you could apparate anywhere for Christmas where would you go? Send a picture to the rest of the family.

I thought it was quite quiet in here as well. I figured it was because everyone is off crafting huge amounts of awesomeness!

Prompt: October Props

Bonus Points: None
Project Name: Needle Minders
Brief Description: I have some really bad habits when it comes to my pins and needles and it drives my husband nuts (and is a danger to everyone) So to try to help with my bad habits and make our living space better I made a couple of needle minders to keep my needles in one place (I have a very long story of how I tucked one into my shirt then forgot it was there, went to make some bulk cooking for the week and lost the needle and had to sift fingers through everything and was ready to throw over $100 dollars worth of food away because I couldn't find it. Did eventually find it, but lesson learned!)
The owl one actually also ended up enhancing my outfit as I had it on my shirt and wore it out for a bit.
They are magnetic, held on by another magnet that I covered in felt. The hedgehog one is about 3 inches (for multiple needles & pins) and the owl one is just over 1".

Project Name: Yard Jenga Tower
Project Link:
Brief Description: All I could think of with Magician/Wizard was towers, raising and destroying towers. So logically I went to Jenga. I made a yard Jenga for a family reunion (it also happens to be my middle one's favorite game.) It took longer than it should have because I didn't have access to a planer. If I had to do it again, I'd probably buy one  Roll Eyes
