Harry Potter Crafting


This Harry Potter tea party Christmas tree ornament lives in Ireland now. The cookies are made from polymer clay.


Someone emailed to ask if I’d remake a Severus Snape ornament I had made a few years back. She discovered it on Pinterest. How cool is that?


I made this Molly Weasley clock for Claire for Christmas. I was inspired by the amazing Knickertwist. You should check her out at blog.pixiehill.com


Chocolate frog card ornaments.


One of them went to my friend Shannon in Savannah, along with this Hufflepuff Christmas stocking. The emblem was done on my embroidery machine. This is her photo because I either forgot to take one or lost it when my laptop crashed last month.


For Christmas this year I received all of the Harry Potter movies on DVD and digital, which inspired me to post some of the Harry Potter crafts I made in 2016.

A Miniature (Actual) Bakery

La Farm 2Brian and I delivered a present to one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet today, Lionel Vatinet of La Farm Bakery.  When we lived in Cary, NC it was our favorite neighborhood business.  Who wouldn’t love an authentic french bakery within walking distance of their house?  Fast forward 5 or so years and we started running into Lionel at various food and wine festivals.  I was thrilled to surprise him with a mini representation of his business.  I’ve had the mini baker’s rack for about 30 years waiting on the perfect use.  I made the breads and pastries and that’s his cookbook ‘A Passion For Bread’.  I highly recommend it!  The very best part about this story is he ships the most amazing breads and pastries.  Make sure you check out his website  http://www.lafarmbakery.com

Zombie Chase

Z1 Z2 Z3 Z4More fun with miniature train scale figures.  This time, we’ve got a zombie chasing a poor businessman.  They are on top of a small thread spool if that helps gauge the size.   I love the zombie cop graphics!

Mousetrap Crime Scene

Mouse1 Mouse2 Mouse3Here’s what I made my son in law for Christmas… because I’m awesome.  🙂  It was made with HO 1:87 scale train people.  It’s amazing what kind of figures you can find once you put your mind to searching.  They have an entire Fun Fair line that’s discontinued, dang it.  I did snag a few Fun Fair spectators on ebay and have had a ton of fun placing them in peril.

Vincent Price’s Living Room

VP1Here’s a tiny diorama I recently finished.  It’s set inside an Altoid mint tin.   There’s popcorn sitting beside a chair made of wire, there’s a ‘tingler’ lurking underneath.  I love the spooky night outside the window!


Make A Wish Necklace

Here’s a cute little necklace I made with a tiny glass jar full of dandelion fluff.  I’ve had the ‘wish’ charm for a long time, this seemed like the perfect use for it.  If you’re interested, the tiny bottles can be ordered from Alpha Stamps and I’ve also seen them in the jewelry section of  Hobby Lobby.

A Different Kind of Valentine

Valentines Day is just around the corner.  I normally post our adventures in hobby farming but couldn’t resist sharing these little cuties.  They’re matchbox valentines.  I covered empty matchboxes inside and out with scrapbook paper and embellished them with a stamped polymer clay heart and a sparkly doo dad.  They’re filled with pink and white M&Ms.  They were inspired by a Martha Stewart holiday kid’s craft.  I’m a big kid.
