~*Headmistress Challenges*~
This semester I will be offering extra Challenges.  Each Headmistress Challenge will last approximately 1 month, and will earn 15 House Points just like Classes.  So what's up next?

Chocolate Frog Card Challenge
September 1-30

"Oh, of course, you wouldn't know Chocolate Frogs have cards inside of them, you know, to collect famous witches and wizards. I've got about five hundred, but I haven't got Agrippa or Ptolemy." -Ron Weasley

Chocolate Frogs are a popular sweet within the Wizarding World.  They are made of the finest chocolate, and 70% Croaka, to give them that realistic hop.  But most importantly, Chocolate Frogs come with Chocolate Frog CARDS!  Collectible cards with a famous witch or wizard on it.  Hogwarts students enjoy trading these cards with their friends, thereby giving the sweet a double factor of fun.  For this challenge you have a few options.  You may craft something that goes along with something else, such as a pair of mittens to match a hat you previously made; something that is fun to share with a friend, like a delicious meal or a board game to play together; or something that pairs well with chocolate, like a batch of vanilla ice cream to go with your dark chocolate cauldron cakes! 

Sorting Hat Challenge
August 1-31
While still alive they did divide
Their favourites from the throng,
Yet how to pick the worthy ones
When they were dead and gone?
'Twas Gryffindor who found the way,
He whipped me off his head
The founders put some brains in me
So I could choose instead!
Now slip me snug about your ears,
I've never yet been wrong,
I'll have a look inside your mind
And tell where you belong!

The Sorting Hat is an indispensable part of Hogwart's tradition.  Ever since Godric Gryffindor removed the hat from his own head, and enchanted it to sort students into Houses based on the Founder's favorite qualities, it has resided in the Headmaster's (or Headmistresses!) Office, where it works on a new song for each year's Sorting.  For this challenge, please channel your inner Sorting Hat, by sorting or organizing something around your home, OR craft something inspired by a song!

Hermione's Handbag Challenge
July 1-31

'When you say you've got the Cloak, and clothes...' said Harry, frowning at Hermione, who was carrying nothing except her small beaded handbag, in which she was now rummaging. 'Yes, they're here,' said Hermione, and to Harry and Ron's utter astonishment, she pulled out a pair of jeans, a sweatshirt, some maroon socks, and finally the silvery Invisibility Cloak... She gave the fragile-looking bag a little shake and it echoed like a cargo hold as a number of heavy objects rolled around inside it."

When faced with the prospect of hunting for Lord Voldemorts Horcruxes, Hermione knew that she, Harry & Ron would need to be well prepared for living on the run, as well as ready to leave at a moments notice.  She therefore took her own beaded handbag and added an Undetectable Extension Charm to it, before packing supplies such as clothes, camping gear, reference books, a healing bottle of dittany, Harrys Invisibility Cloak, and even some Muggle money.  That girl really is the brightest witch of her age!  For this challenge please craft something infinite.  This could be literal, such as an infinity scarf, or it could be something that could be used indefinitely rather than used and thrown away, such as paperless towels, cloth napkins, or cotton dishcloths.  Alternately you may craft something that contains hidden depths, such as a skirt with hidden pockets.

Knight Bus Challenge

The Knight Bus is a purple triple-decker bus that, like a knight in shining armor, comes to the rescue of stranded witches and wizards. It operates at a very fast speed, often taking magical shortcuts to various points within the UK in the blink of an eye, and obstacles will jump out of its way to avoid being hit.  While it is a great way for a stranded member of the magical community to get where they need to go, passengers exiting the Knight Bus are often glad to be off, since its high rate of speed gives many motion sickness.  For this challenge you have a few options:
~Craft a set of three of something; 3 hooplas, 3 dishcloths, 3 beaded bracelets, etc.
~Craft something to help someone in need.  This can be a SPEW item you donate to charity, or something for a friend going through a rough time.
~Craft something that utilizes a 'magical' shortcut of some sort.  Such as adding a crocheted border to a purchased hand towel to create a quick handmade gift.
~Craft something that you are truly glad to be done with!

WhistleFish: I grid the backs of ALL the cross stitches, haha. I didn't take a picture of the back this time, but the next time I post an update of my OWL, I'll try to remember to grab a picture of the back too! As for hoops... it depends. On smaller projects, yes, I hoop. On larger ones, I generally don't (even though it would make it a little easier to cross stitch). I don't like having to iron the project at the end, so instead of hooping, I just use masking tape or painters tape on the edges, and kind of roll the project up a little when I need to work on the middle sections of the piece... I'll probably still need to iron it some, but less than I would if I had to move a hoop all around as I worked.

And now on to my giant project dump for this semester - because that's what happens when I decide to join at the last minute, and I've been crafting like crazy for the past two months haha.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Turmeric Milk
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I was recently diagnosed with arthritis in my lower back, and instructed to take a turmeric supplement to help with the inflammation. As I finished up my first container of turmeric pills, I came across a (much cheaper!) turmeric powder, and decided to try that instead! This was my first time making turmeric milk, and it turned out so yummy! The recipe called for the use of cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom, too. I dont particularly like spicy stuff, so I skipped the ginger (might add in a small amount next time), and Im actually allergic to cardamom, so naturally I omitted that as well. While I was making it, it made the whole house smell like Christmas with the cinnamon in the warm milk. I made a large batch, so it would last me the whole week (who has the patience to make this every single day?!).
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Slytherin House Robes
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I dont want any part of my little bug splinched, so I made her some Slytherin House robes that cover her up!
My kids have been going back and forth about a dozen times a day about what they want to be for Halloween... I thought we FINALLY had it settled (going as the characters from Wreck It Ralph)... until we got an adorable invitation to a friends Hogwarts Halloween Party, at which point my daughter started insisting we go in Harry Potter outfits, not the Wreck It Ralph costumes... I told her if I was going to make Hogwarts robes for all of us, that was IT that would be her Halloween costume, too! She told me that was perfectly fine by her (I returned the few things I had already started putting together for her Wreck It Ralph costume), and purchased yards and yards of fabric instead.

For Christmas last year, I made the kids matching bathrobes. For their Hogwarts robes, I took the bathrobe pattern, and omitted the belt and belt-loops. I decided to change the color of the band going around the outside edge, to indicate their house (the original bathrobe pattern has the band in the same fabric as the rest of the robe). Then I added a fancy clasp closure! All thats left to do is iron on the house patch once it arrives in the mail!

Here is the link to the bathrobe pattern I used for their robes at Christmas and their Hogwarts robes: https://mellysews.com/2013/10/sleepy-robe-free-robe-pattern.html

This is my daughters Slytherin robe! (My sons robe is further down)
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: DADA
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Shellder Cross Stitch
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Not only is Shellder stitched on flexible fabric, but Shellder himself is shellfish, with his own little hinged clamshell that opens and shuts! (I think I might finally be close to the 1/3 point for cross stitching the first 150 Pokemon...)
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - June
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Weedle Cross Stitch
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Little bitty Weedle, made using the last of my stash of Aida cloth. Had to go buy more after I finished this little guy, because I have been cross stitching up a storm lately!!
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - July
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: OWL Update Gryffindor Cross Stitch
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I have been working on this a lot, lately. I decided that the transition between finishing the yellow/gold and starting the yellow would be a really good time to show before and after pictures because itd be a dramatic transition! I ended up putting in closer to 3 or 4 hours on this between pictures because I was on a roll and totally forgot to stop and take a picture at the 2 hour mark!! Here is the link to the cross stitch patterns that I am using for these (but I re-did them in PC Stitch because I dont like working with colored patterns, I like black and white only so that I can highlight the pattern as I go): https://theworldinstitches.tumblr.com/post/140902530443/now-get-my-hogwarts-house-crest-patterns-as-pdfs
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: READ Bookmark
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: This is one of those silly little projects that Ive been intending to do for YEARS, but just never made time for. Every time I want a bookmark, Im too busy reading to actually make one, and when Im crafting, it just doesnt even occur to me that its something that I want or need, because Im not in the middle of a book. I finally sat down, sketched out the design I had in mind, and actually made myself a bookmark. Its been getting loads of use (I think Ive used it in 4 different books already!), and I have a couple people asking if Ill make them bookmarks for Christmas this year!
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: House Unity
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Hufflepuff Robes
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Here is my sons version of the house robes. My cute little Hufflepuff!! 
Here is the link to the bathrobe pattern I used for their robes at Christmas and their Hogwarts robes: https://mellysews.com/2013/10/sleepy-robe-free-robe-pattern.html
Again, for the Hogwarts robes, I omitted the belt and the belt loops, and added a clasp instead. Also, decided to make the band in their house color instead of matching color.
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Birthday Cards
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: My kids were going bananas one day, and wanted to do an art project. As much as I love arts and crafts, for some reason I dont like art projects that dont have any functional purpose haha. So when they wanted to make a project, I decided to have them help me make a bunch of birthday cards in advance, so we always had a birthday card handy when a birthday party or holiday sneaks up on me. They colored the cards for me, and then I added glitter, and helped them add sequins and rhinestones. I think we made about 30 of them altogether? Here are a couple of my favorites (most of my favorites were already given away for Fathers Day and various birthdays weve been to the past couple months).
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Potions
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Focaccia Bread
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I made focaccia bread for the first time and OMG it was so good! I got the recipe from a bread recipe magazine that I picked up at Sprouts because Ive been wanting to make more bread lately (after making baguettes the other day and basically falling in love with bread haha too bad I forgot to take a picture of the baguettes before the got demolished by my family!). The bread dough was definitely a very paste-like consistency before it was baked.
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: SOAR
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Ravenclaw Cross Stitch
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: The pattern for this cross stitch featured vertical lines, circles, and triangles to indicate different colors for the final product. This project probably should have been an OWL, but (1) I didnt realize how long it was going to take me, and (2) I didnt think to submit it beforehand. So its just a regular one instead, haha. But Im in love with it, and I plan to make all 4 of them, plus the Hogwarts crest, and hang them on the wall above my TV. Here is the link to the cross stitch patterns that I am using for these (but I re-did them in PC Stitch because I dont like working with colored patterns, I like black and white only so that I can highlight the pattern as I go): https://theworldinstitches.tumblr.com/post/140902530443/now-get-my-hogwarts-house-crest-patterns-as-pdfs
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Dewgong Cross Stitch
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: This cross stitch pattern required a lot of patience and accuracy to complete, especially because it was mostly white and off-white. It took much more counting than Im used to, because so many of the stitches were basically the same color as the cloth, haha.

NOTE: Once you propose, please go forth on your Advanced Studies projects.  Your Examiners will PM if they have any inquiries.

~Everything O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s~
---Ordinary Wizarding Levels, OWLs, and Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests, NEWTs, are advanced crafting projects.  OWLs and NEWTs are supposed to be more complex and challenging projects.
---OWLs and NEWTs are more time-consuming than HPC classes and challenges.  There is no hard and fast rule on how many hours a project should take, because speed and difficulty levels are too subjective.  What we are really looking for is a project that will be a personal challenge to you.
---OWLs should take 3-4 weeks to complete.
---NEWTs should take more than a month to complete. (Please see post below for more on NEWTs.)
---Projects that do not take the allotted time of crafting will not be counted as complete; keep that in mind when you post your completed OWLs and NEWTs.  If you finish your OWL or NEWT earlier than expected, then craft an additional item(s) that correspond with your subject.  Add notes on how you finished earlier than expected and details about your additional crafting in your Completed Project post.
---You must propose your OWL or NEWT before starting so that we may be your cheerleaders and help encourage you during this more challenging craft adventure.
---You may only do 1 OWL & 1 NEWT at one time.  (Dont want you to be stuck with a ton of OWL & NEWT WIPs!)
---You may propose an OWL or NEWT any time during the semester.
---OWLs and NEWTs can carry over to the next semester.
---If you decide to abandon an OWL or NEWT project, notify your OWL Examiners, and they will erase that log from their records.  Once you have submitted to have an OWL or NEWT erased, you can propose a new one.

1. Select which OWL you would like to complete.  You may only do one OWL at a time so select carefully.
2. Propose what you plan on doing for your OWL project.  You may do this by PM to your OWL Examiners or by posting in the HPC thread.  When making an OWL Proposal, please use the header below, and make sure you give details such as methods using, materials using, plan of action, timeline.  These details will help us cheer you on and inspire future OWLs.
3. Begin work on your OWL project.  Feel free to add progress pics in the HPC thread.
4. Once your project is complete, post a picture of your project in the HPC; make sure to use the OWL Header provided below.  Once you post a completed OWL, your OWL Examiner will notify the Headmistress, and you will earn your OWL Badge for that subject.

OWL Subject & Option(if available):

--Care of Magical Creatures:  Option 1-Even in the muggle world, we are surrounded by fascinating and breathtaking creatures.  Craft something inspired by an everyday animal you find magical.  Option 2-Dragons are terrifying yet awe-inspiring; craft something inspired by these magical creatures.

Project Name: Father's day cookies

Brief Description: These round cookies are like heavenly bodies of delishousness.  Made for a local church to give out as Father's day presents to all the men. .... side note: I was irritated at the tacky sticker of my name on the front.  lol.  If they needed to have a hundred people ask me for the recipe they could have at least stickered on the back!

Class: Ironchef - July Lemon
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Blender Cheesecake
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: Quick cheesecake you make in the blender!  The secret ingredient is lemon juice to help the cake set.  And at only ten minutes from start to fridge, I helped the time along with a fresh strawberry sauce to go with it.  Lemon in the sauce helps to brighten the flavor!

Blender Cheesecake

1 recipe (or 1 can) sweetened condensed milk (1/2 c. hot water, 1 c. dry non-instant powdered milk or 2 c. dry instant powdered milk, 1 c. sugar, 1 T. butter)
1 8 oz philadelphia cream cheese or equivalent
1/3 cup lemon juice (fresh or reconstituted)
1 tsp vanilla
1 premade 9″ graham cracker pie crust (or the equivalent made from scratch)
1 can pie filling (whatever flavor you likecherry seemed to be the most popular)

Blend the ingredients for the sweetened condensed milk (powdered milk, sugar, water, and butter in the blender. Turn blender to low and add the vanilla, lemon juice and cream cheese. Gradually increase the blender speed, until smooth and creamy. (you may have to stop the blender once or twice to scrape down the sides). Pour into prepared crust. You will see it start to thicken, even as you spread it into the pie crust! Chill 2 hours. (If you are in a hurry, you can put it in the freezer for half the time, without changing the properties of the cheesecake at all). Top with premade pie filling and serve. Yum!

Strawberry Sauce

3 cups diced strawberries
1 cup granulated sugar
2 TBSP lemon juice
tsp vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.  Lower heat to a gentle simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Okay, I'm about to post a load of projects to do with setting up my classroom book corner, so here is a before photo to give you some context!

Class: arithmancy
House: ravenclaw
Project: poster and recommended slip box
I made a 'Ms Hurst is reading' poster, it's laminated and I'll update the book title throughout the year in dry wipe pen. I also made a 'recommended' section where students and I can recommend books, with slips to explain what we liked about it (and a box to keep the slips in!). These ideas both came out of seeing this website which made me think about how I could use my book corner displays to generate conversation about reading, so I adapted the idea of the posters that you can make on that site (I wanted something more reusable!)

Class: CoMC
House: ravenclaw
Project: hanging cranes
They (hopefully) appear to fly, floating in the air

Class: DADA
House: ravenclaw
Project: second batch of cranes
I made these (by bending flexible paper) before I looked properly at my ceiling and raised I wouldn't be able to hang so many! But they are packed away in my storage cupboard, I'm sure I'll find another use for these

Challenge: floo pizza
House: ravenclaw
Project: section labels and bookmark box
I made up labels for the different areas of the book corner (fiction, poetry etc) plus a key to the spine lables that the school puts of all its books.
I also made a box to keep bookmarks in, which I'll keep stocked with those promotional ones you can grab in bookshops for free to try to avoid too many folded corners!

Class: head aug
House: ravenclaw
Project: furniture reshuffle and book organising
I moved around the shelving to separate the book corner from the sink and to create a reading nook. I added a rug and some floor cushions to make it more appealing to sit in too
I also rearranged all the books into reference, fiction, non-fic, poetry etc, and alphabetized /applied the dewery system as appropriate. I took the opportunity to give the shelves a really good clean down too!

Class: transfig
House: ravenclaw
Project: wall letters
Transferring the font I wanted (by tracing off of a computer screen!) Onto left over origami paper required accuracy, as did cutting both the main letters and their backing paper. I tried to clean the wall too, but when I removed the old bluetac it just tore the wallpaper (my classroom is a bit of a derelict outhouse, it's due to be demolished next summer so it's in pretty poor condition - but I'm doing the best I can to get it bright and cheery!).

Project Name: Bath Bombs
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: Some vanilla orange bath bombs for a luxurious bath.  Added SLSa this time and I must have gotten the porportions off or used too much water because the bath bombs bombed.  Not foamy not too fizzy.  Still salts and oils for a nice bath, but not the pretty fizzy look.

Class: Detention -- August
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Gryffindor's Bag
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: Gryffindor used her own money to buy a shoulder HP bag and within one week it was tearing at the strap.  So I fixed the tear and sewed in a woven strap under the bag's strap so that it would be reinforced.  Hopefully it will hold up to all that extra homework Snape gives!

Brief Description: Apparently for teacher appreciation next year I will need to make 200 monster post it books.  So to skip a step I made a stamp.

Class: History of Magic
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Suckers
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: These suckers went from water and sugar, add a little heat to melt the sugar and pour in a mold.  Quite a change from grainy sugar to slippery sucker!  There's watermelon, grape, rootbeer, and banana.

1 cup water
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup corn syrup
up to 1/2 tsp flavoring oil
food coloring, optional

Bring water, sugar, and corn syrup to a boil and cook until hard crack stage.  Remove from heat and add coloring.  Stir for two minutes.  Stir in any flavoring oils.  Pour into candy safe molds and let harden.

House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cups
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=453917.msg5472166#5472166
Brief Description: I took a short cut with these peanut butter cups by using chocolate candy melts instead of real chocolate.  Then I don't have to spend an hour tempering!  Still delicious!  And look at that fun chocolate mold so I don't have to carve out individual faces.  What a time saver.  These were supposed to be for an event I'm catering in a few days.  Don't think they'll all last until then lol.
Project Picture:

Subject: Charms
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Balloon Menu & Digital Art
Brief Description: 
Professor Flitwick has inspired me to try a new spell.  I'm ready to learn a new craft, so I'm going into his classroom for 50 extra training sessions to practice.  For this spell I want to conjure a small cartoon with a wand that instead attaches to a muggle computer.

I got a digital drawing pad for Christmas and have been considering it a dark art for months.  I havent dared play with it more than a few minutes as I got too angry with the bad line work and went back to pencil. It's time to shine some Lumos on it and not be afraid.  I want to draw 50 computerized cartoons to get a hang of it and learn to use it better. (I'm thinking 50 is a good number for one or two a day, but if I find I'm racing through I might need to up it.) Ill find some youtubes and watch tutorials from magical art professors. I'll do a timed draw of the same thing drawing 1 and drawing 50 and hopefully see some big improvement. Id like to redo my balloon twisting menu, so after my tests are up, Ill try to Gemino my menu with all digital characters instead of pencil.  And maybe this time when I get frustrated, Flitwick will see Im in a real state and hell give out his delicious little dancing cupcakes from his tin to make me cheer up and try again.

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

This week we are in...
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.

Brief Description: This was created with a mixture of needle felting and glue (seeing as the tiny tiny parts were hard to stay on properly without the glue).
