The Ravenclaw common room is located high up within a tower and known for its panoramic views of the school grounds. It is a large circular room filled with bookcases and blue furnishings. It is also one of the only common rooms to feature a statue of their house founder. The entrance requires no password but the solving of a riddle asked by a bronze eagle knocker. Incorrect answers result in having to wait outside for someone else to answer their riddle successfully. Once inside you can sit under the impressive starry domed ceiling and listen to the relaxing sounds of the wind whistling around the exterior of the tower windows.

"So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow."
The girl in the background made the blonde girl’s desktop background a picture of her holding a sign that said “Hi there. So um…Will you be my girlfriend?” while she was in the bathroom. This is the girl’s response.

DIY Air Dry Clay | Mashia Crafts
Air Dry Clay or Cold Porcelain is so fun to use - like playdough but it air dries hard. I was a bit dubious of how easy it was to make but all you need is glue, cornstarch, lemon juice and baby oil… and a microwave! You can dye it any colour you want, which means you’re going to save money on buying lots of different colours. Have a look back through the archive for lots of projects you can create with your new DIY dough!
