Fantastic Happenings at Darkest Raven Designs on YouTube!!!

As you all may, or may not, know I am a HUGE fan of Chantal and her YouTube channel, Darkest Ravens Designs. She is an AMAZING artist with a lot of wonderful interests including Harry Potter, Poe and Tim Burton – to name a few. She recently made two amazing builds I’d like to share with you today.

She and Sarah from Scribble Fix went to their local hardware store(they both live in Australia and have the same chain hardware store where they live), and they both bought the same box. This box looks like a book so naturally, they collaborated on decorating their boxes. You can find Sarah’s build here.

Chantal decided to decorate her box using inspiration from a video game from American McGee which features Alice and her friends from Wonderland. It’s a dark game full of gorgeous artwork and new looks for all of the characters, Alice included. As a Patreon supporter, I am able to get backstage peeks at the build, and I am in awe of her talent!! Click on the video below to see her awesome build!

Chantal has been doing a series of matchbook miniature dioramas based on Harry Potter including shops from Diagon Alley. She has done 14 I believe, putting out one every month. This month, however, she’s doing something very different. Because this month has 5 Fridays in it, she is creating Dumbledore’s office in 1/12 scale and releasing one video a week the entire month. Her first video features Fawkes in both adult and baby form!!

If you watch these videos, PLEASE, comment at the very least!! Chantal responds to practically all comments that are left, and she really appreciates the feedback. You don’t have to Like/Dislike or Subscribe, but they are nice as well.

Check out Fawkes and the beginning of Dumbledore’s office below:

As a member of Chantal’s Conspiracy(aka family) of Ravens, I am blessed with the ability to talk to Chantal and other Ravens on her Discord channel. She is a very wonderful and down to earth person I’d love to meet in person one day. By becoming a Patreon supporter of hers, you will be able to talk to Chantal, me and others in the Conspiracy.

I just love saying that word! Conspiracy! 😀

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!!

Sharing a Blog #2

From time to time I will be sharing a blog that I think is interesting enough to share here. 🙂  I read a lot of blogs when I have the time for it, and I’ve been reading a lot of them about saving money, living frugally and other financial information.  I found one recently written by Chantal that, while the post was written back in 2016 is still relatable now.  If you like the blog, feel free to leave a comment for her on her page.  And now, the link:

50 Ways toLive Frugally

I hope you enjoy reading the post as much as I did.

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!
