1  Re: Harry Potter Holiday Swap Round 5 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by MissingWillow on: December 04, 2016 08:36:22 AM
My turn to post some truly lovely Harry Potter gifties.  I'm about to explode the gallery, sorry in advance.   Cheesy 

EdelC sent me some fun extras.  I do this swap on behalf of my daughter every year but I'm not passing on chocolate from Ireland!  She's not getting the mushrooms, either because I'm in the middle of a project that they'll be perfect for.   Smiley


She is gonna love the time turner.  Seriously. 


She's started a Harry Potter Christmas tree, this 'always' patronus ornament is just gorgeous!

Thank you so much, Edel!  You're going to make Claire very happy this Christmas.

Pottermouth sent some of her miniature magic here...  "Anything from the trolley, dears?"  It's the Honeydukes Express!


Everywhere you look is something new to discover.


There are lollypops, jelly slugs, candy wands, white chocolate owls and chocolate frogs everywhere.


Bertie Botts Every Flavored Beans and sweets of all kinds.


A cauldron cake nestled amongst the jelly candies.


Scabbers is resting next to some pumpkin pasties!


Drooble's Best Blowing Gum next to some sugar quills!


You totally outdid yourself, Pottermouth.  Thank you so much!  I actually considered making her one of these myself.  This is so much better!   Cheesy

You ladies both are so awesome, thank you!

2  Miniature Wicked Fireplace in Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: October 27, 2016 09:46:10 AM
This little miniature was based off of a full size decorated mantle I found while cruising Pinterest.  The owl is sculpted out of polymer clay and there's a potion brewing in the fireplace.  Thanks for looking!  Angry

3  Moon Gazing Bunny Shrine in Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: October 27, 2016 09:38:14 AM
I made this little moon-gazing bunny in a pumpkin patch shrine for Killam Creative (thanks for the use of your photo!).  I've had that little porcelain rabbit since 1971.  I got it at the emporium in Disney World when it first opened. I made the little moon in our pottery studio.

4  Primitive Witch Doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: October 20, 2016 01:10:00 PM
My partner in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap had an art doll listed on her questionnaire.  I considered this a challenge since I'm not really a doll or toymaker but decided it wasn't going to defeat me.   Cheesy  She also listed witches as a favorite so I knew the direction I was headed.  I found a pattern by Stacey Mead for a primitive witch named Goode Pumpernickel and her cat named Soot.  This was quite a challenge and I learned a few new techniques, including dyeing muslin with coffee.  Her hair is made with yarn I repurpopsed from a yarn ponytail I made years ago.  I painted a heart shaped 'tattoo' on her bum but forgot to take a photo of it.   Smiley  Thanks for looking!

Here are my last two houses.  The one on the left is from Aisy.  I have the exact same paper that she used, but she used it better than I ever have!  The moon makes me smile.   Smiley  The one on the right is from SonjaBoo and it's adorable!  Love the sparkly striped tights.  Thanks so much to you both and Happy Halloween everyone!

I received this truly spooky house from irid3sc3nt.  I love the shape, the contrast between the wood grain and the writing, the shape of the windows, the faint glow in the belfry... everything about it!



Everyone is doing a great job interpreting their partner's themes.  The Harry Potter houses are so clever!  I need to remember to put that on my questionnaire for next year.

7  Vintage Trick or Treater Spool in Halloween Decor and Parties by MissingWillow on: October 13, 2016 07:44:39 AM
Have you ever seen any of those vintage Halloween costumes from back in the 1940s where the kid basically just cut eye holes in a feed sack?  Man, those creep me out!  When I was thinking about making a spool figure for the mini 13 days of Halloween swap, I couldn't get the idea out of my head.  Of course the dolly she's holding just isn't right...

8  A Batty Blue Shrine in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: October 10, 2016 03:30:01 AM
Here's a sweet little shrine I made for Killam Creative in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap.  It's slab built pottery with some star embellishments.  The skull was made and fired separately, then glued onto the piece after firing.  It stands about seven inches tall.

Thanks so much, JoyfulClover.   Kiss It is a handbuilt pottery piece, so yep it did require a kiln.  I agree that the glaze is beautiful, it's one my husband made and we use it often.  Here's a photo I took before sending it off that shows the depth of the color.  The skull was glazed separately and attached after firing.

10  Miniature Halloween Party in Halloween Decor and Parties by MissingWillow on: October 08, 2016 03:37:15 AM
I made this miniature Halloween party in a box for the fabulous Killam Creative in the mini 13 Days of Halloween swap.  I found the black spider web chandelier on sale at Michaels last year and modified by removing an odd large skeleton face and adding my own crystals.  The spooky portrait on the wall is a lenticular sticker set into a frame. 


The table is set with an assortment of sweets, including polymer clay caramel apples, molded cake and moon pies and a spooky head in a jar.  I found the tutorial at http://www.instructables.com/id/head-in-a-jar-prank/


I hung a vintage skeleton on the wall and filled a miniature tub with poly clay apples and resin for a proper bobbing for apples party game.


Here's the back of the box, I love this paper and have had it for ages.  Thanks for looking!
