Whoa, awesome shoes jillybeans!

Class: Herbology
SPEW: n/a
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Mod Putz Houses
Project Page Link (if available): Patterns Here
Brief Description: Have your fiber and make a craft with these great little houses made from cereal boxes! They are quick to assemble and then you have the fun of painting and decorating them. The best part? The back has a cut out to add a tea light to make one cozy house. An excellent way to decorate and recycle.

12  Mod Houses Putz Style in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by pottermouth on: December 05, 2014 04:55:04 PM
Need a simple fun project to do using recycled cereal boxes? Well, here ya go! Katiedoodle's Retro House patterns are quick and easy, and the kids would have fun decorating and painting their own mod houses. If you don't get too wrapped up in doing them yourself, that is.

I made the Butterfly Roof house: (make sure you cut your chimney at an angle  Roll Eyes)

Then the A frame:

And because I really wanted to live in the neighborhood, I made my own house:

They make festive decorations for the mantel when you add the tealights.

Have fun!

13  Quicky Christmas Shadowbox in Winter Holidays by pottermouth on: December 02, 2014 01:32:38 PM
We started dragging out all the Christmas decorations yesterday. Because I'm a vintage ornament hoarder collector, I have about eleventy dozen of those quirky wooden ones that everyone's grandma had. There are snowmen and drummers and trumpeting bears and all of them have misaligned eyes...yeah, those ornaments. I decided to display some of them in a shadowbox with some other bits. The problem came when kid #3 broke down in tears and asked me if I HAD to glue them in there, and did I REALLY need to paint the house? Sheesh. So I settled on dry fitting all the paper background, smashing the tinsel stems in the squares, and using glue dots. I wasn't even "allowed" to use glitter. What's wrong with that kid?!

I'm glue-dotting a dang banner on that thing.

14  Wizard's Desk in Mini in Completed Projects by pottermouth on: December 01, 2014 08:46:05 PM
A long while ago I was given a few wooden blocks and a while after that I turned one into a teeny wizard desk of sorts. The books are made with cereal boxes, paper, and mini Harry Potter printables, the scroll is a mini printie and toothpicks, and there is a pretty rough looking toothpick wand in there. On the back of the desk is a polymer clay candle holder with modeling wax candle, an inkwell and quill made from a metal doodad thingie and microscopic feather. I think it's about 2.5" x 3.5"?
First two photos are courtesy of Mistress Jennie:

Woohoo, I get to show of some HP awesomeness from jillybeans! She worked her magic and made me two spectacular ornaments. The first is a dashing Dumbledore that's framed in a vintage canning lid! How clever!

There is a Christmas-y ribbon around the lid. Pretend the photo is in focus.

Look at this wee owl! I've always admired your painting skills, jilly, and I'm thrilled to have this little treasure.

I'm going to have a very Harry holiday with these ornaments. Thank you!!!

16  Animal Crossing Cake in Dessert by pottermouth on: November 16, 2014 04:23:44 PM
This year my youngest two kids requested an Animal Crossing cake for their 8th birthday. So I set to work yesterday and this is what I ended up with.

The little town, sans river. I totally forgot about the river.

"Nook's Cranny", where you buy your stuff.


It was tons of fun constructing, but those bitty animals are about the size of a thumbnail. Those kids o' mine are really lucky I kinda love them.  Wink

17  Cigar Blox Houses in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by pottermouth on: November 08, 2014 05:02:25 PM
Alpha Stamps monthly kit was "Cigar Box Sweeties" and came with beautiful collage papers in their "Cigar Box Secrets" series. This paper kept me awake at night. I began to think about the secret stash one would keep in an old cigar box but the ladies on this paper looked as if they weren't so hush-hush with their treasures. Maybe it was the double entendre of some of the papers?

The row of houses:

Lady in house one is so welcoming she is dangling out the window, ready to greet you!

Looks as if a visitor has come to call in house two.

And lady in three is just so charming.

18  Creepy Coffin carriage in Halloween Decor and Parties by pottermouth on: October 29, 2014 08:53:59 AM
I had a pile of leftover dollar store Hallowe'en miscellany so naturally I made a spooky baby carriage. Paper mache coffin, paper covered floral wire, plastic skeleton arms, plastic bat, crepe paper, and netting with a vintage photo and pom pom trim from cackle.

Happy Hallowe'en!

19  Free Motion Embroidery Owl in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by pottermouth on: October 15, 2014 01:38:04 PM
So I know you know about thisbirdsabsurd's Snarky Pillow and her equally amazing Little Red and BBW free motion embroidery pieces, and I was completely in awe of how she made them. The sketchy effect that is produced and the idea of drawing with a sewing machine had me itching to try it. After a bit of research, a lot of tension adjusting on my machine, and finding a pretty simple pattern, I gave it a go. Thanks for introducing me to free motion embroidery, thisbird!

20  Stenciled Owl Pillow in Halloween Decor and Parties by pottermouth on: October 15, 2014 01:20:25 PM
Here's a pillow that I made for Mistress Jennie to use in her newly decorated craft room. The front is a freezer paper stenciled owl and the back is this fantastic witch fabric I happened upon in the remnant bin at Joann's.
