Advanced Potion Making Book Replica - Created by Alarm Eighteen 

To anyone who ever wished they could attend Hogwarts, check this out; Alarm Eighteen has created a beautiful 192 page replica of Advanced Potion Making by Libatius Borage. 

This is a full textbook, readable cover to cover, with hand written instructions and corrections added to each page by ‘The Half Blood Prince’. The book expertly matches the age and staining from constant use, as if it has been used by the Prince himself and left for Harry to find during his 6th year of Hogwarts.

You can read more about the project on the artist’s website, or check out the video on Youtube for more detail shots. You can also see more awesome craftwork from the artist here.

Baku is a Japanese nightmare-devouring demon with elephant thunk and tiger claws. Shapes of these tiny humble Bakus were inspired by netsukes (miniature Japanese figurines usually carved out of bone or wood). They would hapilly guard their owner from nightmares and bring them soothe and happy dreams!

8cm (3 inches) tall, cast of resin, painted with acrylics.

Attention! This is a piece of art. Signed and dated. Not a toy for small children. Completely handmade, one of a kind.


A friend’s cat passed away recently, and I decided I should make something for her. I was taking progress photos to show a couple other people, but I liked how it showed my process. If it were any bigger I probably wouldn’t have done my usual color by color, but this was just big enough for that. 

Pattern by me using PC Stitch with the photo above as reference. 18 count Aida cloth in a 6 inch hoop using DMC thread. Not sure how many hours it took, but I finished it in about 16-17 days, working on it after work and a lot on weekends.
