The box is quite small (14 x 17 x 10cm), the same size as I used for the pixies Christmas. I painted the skeleton sent by Debbie, his cloak is lined with a Noah's Ark print fabric.
I tried to make a jar of eyeballs. Maybe it would have looked better if I'd used white beads. As usual I was just using what I had. I filled the jar with clear nail polish after I'd added the eyeballs. The orange book there is 'Paris in a Week' - even wizards want to go to Paris!
Clock made from bit's'n'pieces. Clock face graphic can be found here.
I found the crystal rock in Noah's bedroom. The knife was a gift from Sabiha. Toadstools, glass bottle and fabulous test tubes were from Debbie. And a room isn't a room without mini mail. There's also a canister of olive oil in the back there, you never know, a wizard might want to cook something nice for dinner.
Debbie sent the glass bubbles to make the bubbling cauldron. Liberty thought they were 'very cool'! The cauldron was a funny brass teapot that I pulled the spout off and painted.
I painted some 'Dinosaur' eggs in a nest from Sabiha who also gave me the pumkins. Bones from Debbie in a bowl made by Katie.
I made this box similar to one that Sabiha sent me and filled it with Harry Potter game cards and unicorn horns which came from Debbie.
Fabulous barrels and skull from Debbie. Feather duster from Susanna.
Here's the dog Susanna sent me in the Advent Calendar swap, he has his jar of biscuits nearby.
A caged dragon. I bought a little snowglobe with a dragon in it at the $2 shop and smashed it to ge the little dragon out. (That was the only thing I actually bought especially for the roombox!)
My mum gave me that ladle in there with the rolls of paper goods. Mum turns up with little things she has just 'found' all the time. And there's a funny little Mandrake plant that I tried to make late last night from some clay (I can barely see what I'm doing at night these days!), may have to invest in a properly made one some day.
Ancient spell book and wand.
I really enjoyed making the spell book!
Every room needs an old pitcher!
Harry Potter wand chart on the wall.
I hope you've enjoyed this little trip to the dark side as much as I did. I have to say it was a lot of fun! Thank you to all of you who have given me such wonderful inspiration!
The best thing about this room box is that Noah really likes it! - I'm sure a lot of you know that finding something a 13 year old likes can be a challenge. Now back to life with a 13 year old...the dark side...
