Received from Mistress Jennie! My Gryffindor was almost late for school because she saw this on the porch. Even before it was inside the house, "Can I have it?!?!"  Made them wait until after school to see.

First a beautiful sparkly shirt in a Celtic looking Hallows symbol. Even though it is sized for me and not Gryffindor, I'm surprised it's not gone yet lol.  And then the coolest pouch with dragon scales. This was swiped from the Slytherin and I had to yell to bring back because I needed pics.  Slytherin says "but I want it! It's so cool!" Then DH Ravenclaw says "we all want it, but it's moms."

Also got a neat Felix necklace and Hufflepuff earrings. She sent a Map ornament for my Potter tree which is perfect because it's one of the charm pieces I don't have! And Slytherin got her own keychain for her house. I think the dark mark charm is cool. Haven't seen one before. And plenty of Gringotts coins to go in my Honeydukes cabinet. 

And Gryffindor got a keychain too! It's already on her backpack. She loves it!

Thanks Jennie! Love everything! Now to take my Lucky Potion so you will like your package too. Lol

Noodle.... we have used a window cling film to mimic stained glass for our front door.  I don't know what kind of home improvement stores you'd have near, but you might be able to just google stained glass window cling.  It's just a plastic sheet that you cut to fit.  Had the same kind in the last house we lived in and it stayed the whole nine years we were there.

Ditto to Fiber.  I'm sure I can send on time, but a few extra days might be nice to help my nerves.

Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452801.0
Brief Description: My most successful medium has got to be baking.  Everyone IRL expects my desserts to be the most labor intensive and fantastic tasting.  I'm also known for messing with recipes to put my own spin on things.  This peach cobbler was made using the blackberry cobbler recipe I found this summer, just sub chopped peaches for blackberries!  I doubled it because I had guests for our city's Peach Days celebration.  Oh and peaches from my own tree!

Brief Description: This battle was neck and neck!  I kept thinking that making a giant dessert was going to win, but at the last moment a tiny stamp came flying in to win.
These are small carved stamps to resemble wizarding coins.  The deerthing is tiniest of all and just bigger than the tip of my thumb.  ...on another note whaaat is the sickle character?? lol

Brief Description: I'm in charge of the school's birthday table this year and for September's day I made a big loud balloon arrangement and sign so that the kids would be distracted from lunch just enough so they could come get a birthday treat.  Of course they'll notice, it lights up!  Even some of the lunch ladies came out to take pictures.

Project Name: Peach Marshmallows
Project Page Link: --
Brief Description: I've been making loads of marshmallows over the years and I've made lots of different flavors, so when I was asked to bring a peach dessert to a party I knew it had to be marshmallows!

Peach Marshmallows

1/2 cup peach puree
3 - 1/4 ounce envelopes unflavored gelatin

2 cups granulated white sugar
1/2 cup cold water
1 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
Food coloring optional
3-4 cups powdered sugar, sifted

Spray a 9X13 pan with release spray, then sift a layer of powdered sugar over the whole pan bottom and sides so the marshmallow can release.  Soften gelatin with cup peach puree in bowl of stand mixer.

In a medium saucepan put 2 cups sugar, cup water, 1 cup corn syrup, and tsp salt.  Bring to a boil at medium to medium high, stirring.  When boiling, place saucepan lid on top for two minutes to let condensation wash down the sides.  Remove lid after two minutes and clip in candy thermometer.  Allow to reach 240* without stirring this time.

Start mixer on low speed, slowly pour in hot syrup into softened gelatin.  Gradually increase speed to high, beating for 8-12 minutes until bowl is softly warm to the touch and mixture is white, shiny, and thick.

Stop mixer and add any colorings and vanilla.  Beat again until mixed, about 10 seconds.  Spatula out sticky mixture into prepared 9X13 pan.  Try to smooth top as best you can.  Sift a generous amount of powdered sugar over all top.  Let set for 8 hours or over night.

Loosen marshmallow from sides of pan with knife.  Sift powdered sugar over counter or cutting board, then pull marshmallow sheet from pan and place on top.  Using kitchen scissors or knife, cut pieces apart and press edges into more powdered sugar.   Place pieces in a sifter and tap all excess sugar off marshmallow pieces.  Keep in a covered container for up to one month.

House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Photo Prop Boards
Brief Description:  Im going to start trying to work on transfiguration of humans.  With lots of practice I should be able to change them into a mummy? a green faced witch? a Frankenstein monster?  Im hoping a few different kinds of monsters, but more of the funny way muggles think of them.  I know Viktor Krum had a hard time taking a full body shape, so Im going to try all but the head at first.  See if I can get the body and wait on the face after a few months of practice.

Halloween is around the corner and Id like to make a fun photo prop board for all the carnivals.  You press your face into it and smile for the camera.  Id like to do a 5 foot tall one out of wood if I can convince the Ravenclaw to build a stand for me.  However if I cant, Ill make two or more posterboard ones, (I never feel like I do enough for newts and owls!) to be done by Oct 27th.  Ill have to design the picture, draw it on, cut out the face, and paintpaintpaint!
