hey guys
well i said i would show you a the things iv been working on, or should i say playing at lol
a friend of mine gave me the idea for this one, so i made her one.
now i know nothing of harry potter having never seen or read any of the films or books so this was all done from pics on google. everything is made from paper, clay or cardboard.

this is the finished cabinet 

on the top shelf we have harrys letter of acceptance, some spell bottles, a map ( dont tknow the name of it) and a book,.these both open and are tiny replicas so as exact as i could get them.

on the middle shelf we have a history of magic book, a wand, a snitch, 
and some scrolls (which do open)

on the bottom is a spell cauldron and more scrolls 
monster book of monsters

sitting on top is a finding hat, and a dobbie? i have to say my sculpting leaves a lot to be desired but i did kind of fall in love with this odd little guy even if he is ugly lol .

then we have hedwig, this poor guy was finished and sat drying on the window ledge and my cat took a dislike to him! and i had to do a bit of a rescue on him....

and of course we had to have his broomstick.

the cabinet itself is made from cardboard saved from deliveries, accetat and the hinges are from tim holts grungboard, the keyhole i cut on my craft robo a few times and layered then it was all painted 
in acrylic paint, and finished with a couple of coats of varnish.

i hope you like it guys i had a lot of fun playing with this .

Hello my lovelies
well i am here today to tell you about the new
That Craft Place challenge

Anything goes

sponsored by 
All Dressed Up

here's mine

this little girl is so cute dont you think, im practicing a lot with my colouring, and loving it, still loads to learn and improve on but its so relaxing to just lose yourself in a  couple of hrs colouring, ( i just cannot get the hang of leaving white bits though !)

So it a simple mat and layer and the image topper which I coloured using spectrum noir pens and then the pencils on top, the pencils really do add depth and vibrant colour.
I added some of the fabulous flowers and a bit of bling both available from That Craft Place .

Now just a little side note to apologize for neglecting my blog somewhat of late, I had kind of lost confidence in my craft, iv given myself a bit of a talking to and as you can see I had a little play and changed my blog a little , made myself a new banner (quite pleased with myself).
So anyway iv been playing and have made a couple of things just for fun which I will share with you all over the next couple of days.

Now come on and get your entries in :)

Hi guys
Well its my absolute favourite time of the year and my all tome favourite day is fast approaching and the theme for this fortnight challenge on the
That Craft Place challenge blog
So as you can imagine I had loads of fun with this one

I started with a cardboard circle cut out the centre and reinforced it with some paper Mache, then painted it black.
I then wrapped it in Halloween tinsel.
The next step was to make some clay witches hats ,pumpkins and spiders
once dry painted and varnished them.

I put the gorgeous wide printed Halloween ribbon across the middle and then added the clay bits with hot glue, added another Halloween ribbon to hang it and there you have it.
So easy and fun to make, all the ribbons , clay and paints can be got from Lisa at
That Craft Place.

im here with the first of 2 blogs for you today, lol yeah i know its all or nothing with me right now,
anyway the first is for 

theme is 
Girls but no Pink

ok so here is my make

i made the bodyform from newspaper after watching a video on you tube by Angela Holt.
although the cheap doll hubby picked up for me was a little flat in the backside area so i had to modify and enhance her a little,lol the you tube video doesn't show how to make the stand so i had to work that out for myself, wasnt too hard , just a stick some more newspaper and a few circles cut and layered
once it was completely dry i painted with cream acrylic, and then covered with some lovely lace fabric my daughter gave me that she had cut of the bottom of a dress,( oh the joys of being short )
then a few flowers and metal embellishments from my stash of goodies from That Craft Place.
and finished with a couple of beads for the bodice topper .
i really loved making this, so you can expect to see a few variations over the next few months lol

here are a couple of different views excuse the bad pics i as you know by now a rubbish photograther lol

give it a go, you will get addicted to, and dont forget you can get all the lovely bits to decorate it from
