So I made a quick pussy hat, from a thrifted jumper. It's madly wobbly now that I try it on, but quirky. I don't think I've any prompts left for house points, unless you could consider that me looking this ridiculous would work for the potions/boggart prompt.. It would clearly make anyone laugh!

But the hat is in solidarity with you marchers on the 21.. bonus: my tee shirt always makes me think of you noodle it reads 'I'm the person the daily mail warned you about.'

If you don't know of it, The daily mail (aka the hate mail) is a right wing, xenophobic newspaper

My latest cut, sock-monkeys craftylittlemonkey suggested it as theme and I like it! Three separate stamps, monkey+hat+heart. I've been away from crafting for weeks due to a succession of minor illnesses, this is the first time back and it was great!

SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: glitter house
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451380.0

Brief Description: Each christmas for the last seven years I have made a glitter house, it has become a tradition, the bottoms of the houses are white, so I write a brief account of the highlights of each year. They are made of strong cardboard and so I envisage my great great great grandkids tenderly unwrapping them and reading accounts of the first decade of the 21 century. Depending on how long I live, the village might take over my home.
the whole village

This years was a pink house, in homage to my growing flamingo obsession. I had a pair of pink flamingo earrings that someone made me in a swap, so they are in the front garden .

5  Glitter house village one house a year, seven years(!) in Completed Projects by edelC on: January 18, 2017 01:04:30 AM
So a long time ago I came across putz glitter housese online, I loved the history of them and thought that I would make one. It was close to christmas, so I figured a little christmas decoration would be a nice thing. I chopped a little branch off our fake christmas tree to make a tree for the garden and covered the whole lot with glitter. On the base of the house, which was covered in white paper, i wrote a short account of the highlights of the year.

Then I did the same the following year..all of a sudden I am now looking at 7 houses. It is part of my christmas tradition now, in the week before christmas I make a house. They are all made of 'grey board' rather than the traditional cereal packet. That was the board that i first used and continuted, a pain in the ass, quite frankly as it is very dense and difficult to cut small apertures, but it makes them very durable. next year I will have to work out some kind of village configuration, maybe make a landscape, but for now this is the village. They get wrapped up and put away after christmas and it is always nice to pull them out and reread each year as they appear out of the boxes of christmas decorations.


whole village, a witch lives in one of the houses, her broomstick is outside the door.


year one and two


three and four


the railway station, this was made to plans from the same glitter house website, but I am not especially happy with the scale, it seems a touch big, but I still love it.


the village church


this year's pink house a homage to my flamingo obsession, there are two tiny flamingos in the front yard. I got the flamingos in a craft swap ages ago, they were earrings.

Wow,roler that stocking is great( I'm currently looking at the cat ornament on my tree from last year)

Sadly this is the second last items from my wonderful stocking from AcadianDriftwood such a cool stocking a it's been such fun to unpack.

The first from yesterday is some braided cord to make a coiled bowl, very pretty colors. And some ace popcorn seasonings.

Oh what a cute little boy. I hope he gets better soon

Today's goodies. Maple candy. We were excited to try this and these lovely hair clips. Perfect for when I next do myself up in 50s garb
