1  Re: Harry Potter Craftalong ~ Midsummer Term 2018 ~ Join anytime! in Craftalongs by midkiffsjoy on: June 20, 2018 07:44:50 PM
Well dagnab it.  I'm back to posting links until IMGUR will load the pictures.  It's temperamental, isn't it?
Would you believe all of my attempts to load it loaded all at once the moment I hit the button to abandon it.  Woooo this reminds me to appreciate Craftsters picture hosting all the more.  O.O

Omg Moonflame!!!!  Those are gorgeous!!!

Erinaquaheart, those treats are positively mouth watering, and those scrapbook pages are adorable.

Mistress Jennie, my great grandmother's hobby was crocheting dollies.  That's the only craft she did.  Seeing yours brings back memories.  <3

GO KATIEBREAD!!!!!  Not gonna lie.  I have a Sterlite tub FULL of dolls I want to faceup.  I have all the tools.  I even have the Mr. Clean sealant.  I'm too scared to try.  *knocking knees*  YOU ARE THE BOMB!!!!

House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Dollhouse Table Top Zen Garden
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: A zen garden transforms as part of its use as the sand goes from flat surface to lined by the rake.  I enjoyed transforming toothpicks and matches into a little table top zen garden for my dollhouse, and transforming beads into a tiny statue for it.

Thank you Moonflame.  Smiley  Did you see the doll house portraits?  The one with just William in it uses prizes I think you made.  <3

Guadiknight.  That calendar is adorable, and your tiny dresses are always so gorgeous.  Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy Class
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Adapted strollers
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I picked up a package of tiny strollers at the dollar store.  I used the best one and the most squashed one for this project.  I took the wheels and push bars off then removed the chassis with a drimel and an exacto knife.  I robbed the band from the squashed stroller's hood for the mobile for the bassinet.  The mobile is embroidery thread and circles stamped from a sheet of felt.  I used thick cardboard, several layers of paper towel, and fabric to make a tiny fitted matresses pad. I'm learning to use fabric glue.  I painted the squashed stroller yellow as all of the walls in my dollhouse have some degree of yellow.  I need to learn how to use gesso to prime plastic. Thus I adapted 2 baby shower favor strollers into a bassinet and a laundry basket for my dollhouse.

House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Dollhouse Chart Baby Afghan
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: This afghan did not want to be made.  For such a simple pattern I had to frog it countless times.  But I managed, by following the pattern closely, to knit this baby afghan on toothpicks for my dollhouse. I need better lighting in my room.  The embroidery thread I used to knit this is so much prettier than it looks in this picture.  It's a beautiful colorway of pink through blue.  Perfect for a baby blanket.

Project Name: Birthday Presents for the Dollhouse
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Yesterday was AnnoyingLittleBrother's birthday.  I had him save me some of the wrapping presents to make presents for the dollhouse from.  I started by making cardboard boxes to wrap, and then realized they could easily be crushed so I dismantled them and stacked cardboard pieces, gluing them together.  I then wrapped the boxes with the wrapping paper and decorated the packages with ribbon cut down to size.  And then I learned how to make bows...... (Omg the bows take FOREVER)  SO thankful for Pintrest.

Project Name: A Dovecote for the Dollhouse
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: According to Wikipedia, a Dovecote is a structure intended to house pigeons or doves.  Having been around since at least Ancient Egypt, Dovecotes were built directly into the upper walls of farmhouses in Brittany.  The homing pigeon was selectively bred from rock pigeons for it ability to find its way back to its nest over extremely long distances.  This enables homing pigeons to be used to carry messages.  I built a lovely dovecote to hang near the rafters of the dollhouse.

Thank you SO MUCH, Inselaeffchen!!!!!  I'm really enjoying building stuff for the little doll house!!!!!  The hardest part is keeping the kids OUT of it.  Roflmbo.  It's like they've completely forgotten they have one of their own that's 3 times as big as mine.  Lol

I wish you the best of luck on your job hunt, TheArtsyRaven. Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Floo Powder Taj Mahal
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: A Wading Pool for the Calico Critters
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Who doesn't enjoy a cool dip in the Summer?  I built this sweet little wading pool from the top of a Folgers coffee canister.  I cut the top off and glued it onto a thick, Chinette paper plate and cut it down to fit a floor.  I layered white and then blue coats over the red plastic (for 3 days).  I found a bunch of water themed coloring pages online, shrank them, and colored them with colored pencils.  I really wanted to add an octopus but realized there was no way I could cut out tenticles that small.  I put a thick coat of modge on it protect it, and make it shiny.  I had SO MUCH FUN building this for my little doll house from scratch!!!! Cheesy

House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: An Easel for my Dollhouse
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I can't live in a house without an easel.  I love easels.  Even when I'm not getting to paint.  So when I came across a tutorial to make an easel for my dollhouse I had to.  First I made one that was painted, like the tutorial, but decided I don't like painted easels.  I like bare wood easels decorated with paint from the artworks created on them, so I built another one.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Study of Ancient Runes ( SoAR )
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Yarn Basket
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: When I was growing up Granny and Mom always had a basket of yarn next to their chair with their knitting in it.  I made a little yarn basket for my dollhouse from a walnut, wound embroidery floss into hanks of yarn, and made a pair of knitting needles from toothpicks.  I had to turn the yarn as I wound it, turn the walnut as I cut and sanded it, and turn the toothpicks as I cut them and carved them down so the beads would fit on them.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration Class
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: A WIP for Flopsy
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: When I finished the yarn basket and knitting needles for Flopsy, AnnoyingLittleSister decided she needed a project to work on.  I knitted her a project on toothpicks, transfered it to Flopsy's needles, and glued it in place.  I'm still a beginner knitter so it being so small was difficult  for me to control, and the toothpicks constantly stabbed my hands.  I love the outcome, but the process was not fun.

House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: My secret
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I'm not big on secrets, so I wasn't sure what I'd do for this project, and I've had to change my idea a couple of times due to my mobility.  I finally decided on two gilded framed portrait for my new dollhouse.  The rectangle frame is made from match sticks, and the round frame is made from thin stripes of ultra thin cardboard layered and glued around a medicine bottle mold.  My secret is that I posted my Floo Powder on February 5th my water had just broke and I was in hard labor.  Had to get my project in, duh.  Roflmbo  I believe it was Moonflame who made the props for AnnoyingBabyBrother's portrait. : )

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention in the Dungeon April
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: A Welcome Mat
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: A Welcome mat is very welcoming.  I saw a cork dollhouse welcome mat on Pintrest that reminded me of the old couple in the white house in The Book of Eli that I loved.  I don't have thin corkboard so I cut my mat base from a Chinette paper plate, and used the backside of it so the finished mat would have texture.

House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: House Number
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I made this house number for another project but didn't turn it in in time, so it gets to be my May WIP.  I cut the base from a Chinette paper plate.  I painted it blue with white trim and free style painted the numbers.  My lettering is in need of serious work.

Project Name: Workout Clipboard
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: A side effect of sitting for 2 months is having a hard time getting up.  The first 2 weeks after Will was born all I could do to get around was moon walk.  Some days it's really hard to remember I am going to get better, so I made this motivational clipboard to help me keep track of my blood pressure and keep me going.  Last week I was able to climb up on a stool.  I was very excited.  Smiley
