There's a new floo challenge up on the board

This week we are in...
A badger sett
In the wild (aka not the huffle common room!) Badger sets are home to a clan of animals who live together. They sleep together in the main chamber, for warmth - in winter an occupied sett will have 'steam' coming out of the entrance, which has condensed badger breath from all those snoring badgers!
For this challenge, please bed down! Make something for a bed or to help you (or someone else) sleep - a cozy blanket, a valarian tea infusion or a naptime cuddle toy

OWL proposal

Subject: DADA
House: ravenclaw
Project: sockhead hat
So, as might be obvious from my total disappearance from the HPC, I'm rather struggling with my teacher training. It just so much to do, particularly because the course I'm on is an in-at-the-deep-end type, where I am full time teaching while I train and write essays and all the other stuff trainees do! Basically I'm drowning in work, and I've been failing to get any work/life balance and I'm feeling pretty depressed.
So, to help remedy that I'm turning to my trusty meditative knitting! I'm going to try to carve out a few minutes a day - as often as I can 10 minutes, but failing that 5, to myself to knit in (currently I get up, get dressed and leave as quickly as possible, work about 13/14 hours, come home and go straight to bed). So my simple knit hat in beautiful Noro yarn, will help defend me against the imminent metal collapse!
I know it's a simple project for a OWL, what I'm tackling here isn't my craft skills but my own mindset.
Thanks for being here guys. I know in not commenting, but I love dropping in and seeing what give all been up to every week Smiley
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: Setting up for the Harry Potter Craftalong ~Midsummer Term DO NOT POST HERE! on: September 25, 2018 10:18:47 PM
In posted a new flip a couple of days ago, but realised I never told you guys about it!!  Shocked
I might of my oversight, you can still submit for the old floo challenge until midnight cereal time today

Greenland
The Thule region of Greenland has the northernmost year-round populated communities on earth. The Thule culture is centered on traditional hunting skills with spears and kayaks.
For this challenge, you must go out and hunt for your supplies before you can craft - this may mean hunting for autumn leaves in a wood, hunting for just the right fabric in a haberdashery, for example.

I love the the teacup bookmarks! And the honeydukes model is amazing!

Sorry I've not been around the last few weeks - being a trainee teacher is phenomenally time-consuming Smiley a couple of quick projects...

Class: alchemy
House Ravenclaw
Project: self love stew (vegan version)
The whole ethos of this recipe is about self soothing. Even if you're not planning on cooking it I recommend having a read Smiley


Challenge: floo park guell
House : ravenclaw
Project: washcloth
In love bubblegum blue - so much that my soap is that colour, and now I have a matching washcloth!

Class: HoM
House: ravenclaw
Project: shoebox theatre
During our inset days we looked at teaching art, and produced a small project about ourselves - mine is this shoebox which transforms when you open it to a theatre with my family as the cast Smiley it's a bit crude as the project was really about teaching art, but I had fun

Class: Soar
House: ravenclaw
Project: welcome wall
I had to create a welcome wall featuring all my class. I based mine around possible lines of travel - it shows places my class might want to go to or work in in the future

He took a deep breath, scattered the powder into the flames, and stepped forward; the fire felt like a warm breeze; he opened his mouth and immediately swallowed a lot of hot ash.
Mistress Jennie & Deputy Headmistress Noodle-bug are trying to get to Honeydukes, but something has gone wrong.... Where are they?

A Pinch of Floo Powder
Every 2 weeks (usually on a monday) a new challenge will be posted, taking us to explore a different place.
Students may complete and post a craft based on the challenge to earn 15 House Points (and a badge, obvs! Smiley).  Once a new challenge is posted, you have until midnight Central time that day to finish posting the old challenge.
As with all things HPC, you are welcome to do any, all, or none of these challenges. They are just a way to inspire your own magical crafting
