House: Ravelclaw
Project Name: Portable cocktail case
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: This is a halloween themed cocktail case, I love the idea of portability, and little cases of interesting things. So I decoupaged this case with halloween motifs, cut foam to pad out the bottles, added red velvet (red for this theme) created a space for two bottles and added some straps to secure them, plus space for straws, decorations etc.

Brief Description:  These two pot holders were made to completely finish that horrible horrible charm pack of fabric, The designs are nice, but the fabric is awful, I used every scrap, The pot holders were made using a disappearing nine patch and the very last two pieces to make this heart

the moral of the story is never buy cheap ass fabric.

Two Philosopher stone challenges done

SPEW: (If your item is for charity, enter that here; if not leave blank or add n/a.)
House: ravenclaw
Project Name: Birthday cake, gluten free
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Requires the application of heat...this would be disgusting if unbaked and as a bonus, it had fire on top!
Project Picture: I used this recipe http://glutenfreeeasily.com/chocolate-clementine-cake/ but I made two smaller ones and then sandwiched them together with whipped cream. put more whipped cream on top and some strawberries. This cake is gluten free- and dairy free if you skip the cream, but it is sooooo much better with cream

Class/Challenge/House Pride: PS 4 Kaos with keys
SPEW: (If your item is for charity, enter that here; if not leave blank or add n/a.)
House: Ravelclaw
Project Name: Working with horrible cheap fabric and a recycled skirt
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: A lot of recycled fabric in this, the lining and straps are all from an old sheet and an old skirt from the thrift store. I bought four really cheap charm packs in our equivalent of the dollar store (hint: this is a bad idea) I gave two to a friend and kept two, with the idea that we would make one another some cool things...The patchwork squares were monumentally shitty fabric, the first one shrank when I put an iron on it, they frayed and didn't feel nice. But I was determined...using them and a lining of an old skirt and binding cut from an old sheet (red??! red sheets??) I made her this bag. I was pleased with how it turned out.

 Class/Challenge/House Pride: Iron chef hogwarts -peanuts
SPEW: (If your item is for charity, enter that here; if not leave blank or add n/a.)
House: Ravelclaw
Project Name: a trip down memory lane, 'ice-cream, flake and peanuts'
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: So i am old in craftster terms, definitely a geezer, I was brought up in a small town in Ireland and I remember when I was a teenager, experiencing for the first time the wonder that was baskin robbins icecream with 20 flavours!! wow...As a child we had vanilla ice-cream, raspberry ripple and neapolitan . and that was it. Ice-cream came in blocks and you ate it sandwiched between wafers.

My older brother who has an incredibly sweet tooth invented this combination, and he would send me to the shop and buy the ingredients- he was too lazy to walk there. I would buy half a block of ice-cream (that was about 2 cups) a cadburys chocolate flake and two small packets of salted peanuts. he would mix them all in a bowl and I got to share it with him. I come from a large family, so this was all done in secret so we didn't have to share with anyone else.

So the combination of Icecreamflakeandpeanuts is the ultimate comfort food for me and I still have it when I am tired or down. This by the way, was revolutionary in it's time, we are talking about the 70s here, where you never had salty and sweet things together...

Simple to make, and I guarantee it will cure you of whatever ails you.


1-2 cups of vanilla ice cream, depending on how greedy you are,  it doesn't have to be super premium ice-cream, regular is fine.
1/4 cup salted peanuts per cup of ice-cream
1 cadburys flake, or twirl, or any other crumbly milk chocolate bar. In an emergency you can grate or finely chop a regular bar.

put all ingredients into a bowl and smoosh together with a fork...enjoy, slowly letting the salt and chocolatey, creamy sweetness melt on your tongue. it is essential that you eat this somewhere you feel safe and cosy.
