I think it's time for a new OWL. I've been sitting on my NEWT, so I might have an idea by tomorrow, we'll see...

OWL Subject & Option: Divination, option 3 (craft the zodiac)
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: A Menagerie Fantastical Felted Friends
Brief Description:
For this OWL, I plan on creating the entire Chinese Zodiac using wool and needlefelting. I'm drawing from a few inspirations here, mainly this post (the colour! The shape!) as well as this one (Pokemon zodiac. Nothing more must be said). I don't have a lot of colour, so I'm planning on making them white, black and grey, using natural wool roving from a farm in our town. I don't know if they will be the actual animals, or if they'll be pokemon. Or a combination of the two. We shall see as the little buddies are created. All I know is that I hope to make twelve, if not more. They will be fairly small small enough to fit inside my palm, or comfortably in a child's hand. And I'm hoping to make them incredibly cute, so watch out!

Oh my gosh, I have been stuck in the hospital wing with a stubborn case of Strep and I haven't been able to keep up with everything! I have been lurking and seeing everyone's awesome assignments! There are so many I couldn't begin to comment on them all, but all of you are so talented! I am so lucky to have such inspiring classmates.

Audio - Yay! Another Slytherin! I absolutely love everything I have seen you post on craftster so I am really excited to see what you post in here Smiley

Finally I have been able to finish up some projects to post on here. It feels great to be creative again after being sick for what seemed like forever.

Class/Challenge/House Pride:House Pride
Project Name:Slytherin house scarf
Brief Description: This scarf is just a straight forward house color scarf in the first year style with tassels at each end. It is in green and silvery grey for Slytherin house. It normally takes me only a day or two to complete a scarf but this one took forever!

Project Picture:

Sorry about the extreme closeup, I wanted to post it but I couldn't find a great place to take a picture if it that wouldn't show my messy craft area so I opted for the closeup situation.

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans ear wax challenge
Project Name:Princess Bubblegum fan art earrings
Brief Description: These little dangle earrings are hand drawn and colored. They are made out of Shrinky Dink and feature one of my favorite cartoon characters: Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time!

Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Flying
Project Name:Painting To Illustrate New Enchantment For Owls To Increase Visibility By Making Them Brightly Colored
Brief Description: This painting I made is to illustrate a new spell that makes owls very brightly colored so when flying with their wizard companions they may serve as a highly visible beacon and warn against crashing. Flying safety is always a boring subject for young witches and wizards so maybe having a spell that involves turning their owl outrageous colors will make them more interested in safe flying.

And because I love you all and sometimes this board is like a second home, I can't help myself but to share some non-topic related awesome happy news: I just got engaged! (Happy early birthday/Valentine's Day to me! I couldn't be happier. Grin)

Congratulations WhistleFish!!!

Yay, Whistlefish!! Congratulations! I see some Wedding crafting in your future!!!!

Class: Hagrid's Detention
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Banana Mustache *not a real banana*
Project Description: Because of my procrastination I just let this really simple project sit unfinished for MONTHS!!! So awful. I was happy to be forced to take care of this WIP for Detention!  TechnicolorAquahearts and I have been working on Art Bananas for a while...an ongoing project, you know...and I thought it would be awesome to have a banana with a mustache on it. So I made a stencil and gessoed a base on my banana. And then nothing. I left it to dry and never came back to it. I finished it last night!

Class: Muggle Studies
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Mario Mushroom Bracelet
Project Description: You know how muggles spend so much time playing video games. Well, after trying my hand at a few myself, I decided that I really like those unmagical but impressive games as too! And my favorites? Anything that has the little Mario! And so I give you a mushroom bracelet filled with the one ups and powerups that any muggle gamer would love to have.

Class: Astronomy
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Canis Major in the Sky
Project Description: In honoring Sirius Black I decided to paint a little watercolor in his memory. In my painting I have a silhouette of Sirius in dog form and under the full moon. In the sky, its hard to see, I have the constellation of Canis Major in silvery stars! I think Sirius would be touched....  Cheesy

Finally decided to get around to Horcrux Hunting!!!!
 So my first Horcrux found....

Class: Horcrux Hunting
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Riddle's Diary
Project Description: In my search I came across a sketchbook/journal with a blank cover...it needed an identifying mark...with a little effort a very dapper apple person appeared. This is Rhett Appler. Isn't he handsome?

Congrats, WhistleFish!!! What exciting news! So, how is the HP themed wedding plans coming along?  Cheesy

jennie: can't wait to see the Potterwatch afghan; you're nearly there! (and I sympathize with the dryer thing. My washer decided to begin leaking. But only on certain cycles... Huh)

Melissaurus: love the crow atc!

Maman: thanks for the advice and congrats on WotW!

CraftyLady: moving right along on your beautiful OWL, aren't you? Very nice.

Tech.Aquahearts: great house scarf!

ErinAquaheart: love the Mario bracelet and your banana! My kids roared with laughter when they saw it.

And welcome audio!!!!

Challenge: Horcrux Hunt/Helga Hufflepuff's Cup
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Hermione's Amortentia
Brief Description: My SPEW contributions have been abysmal lately so I began making squares to donate and I thought incorporating Hermione's infatuations into a square would be fun. The dark green is for her love of freshly mown grass, the celery is for spearmint toothpaste, and the cream is for parchment.
