I've finished the Bunny portraits and one set of bunnies to go outside of the houses. Need to cut out 3 more bunnies to go outside. I am still experimenting with that. I've got about 40 polymer eggs cooking in the oven now.

Soon, very soon, I get to decorate the houses - the really fun part. All of it is fun, except gluing cardboard for bases (I really don't enjoy that), but the decorations are by far the most fun.

I finished the Easter Houses tonight. And I did a drawing for the Oak leaf punch - OKPat wins. If you will send me your address then I will mail it you this week.

I redid some of the leaves on the roofs to make them more uniform, they look much better. Let me know what you think.

I put a lot more pictures on my blog - [url]withglueandglitter.blogspot.com[/url]

Now I'm working on at least one St. Patrick's day house and a few other little houses from my templates. I keep trying to do easy stuff but the projects balloon. And it's Springtime and there is real actual human-size house maintenance to do.

Lucy these bunny houses are wonderful and the leaves look great! These houses look like they would fit into an enchanted forest. The bunnies real bring everything alive!!

Lucy, these houses make me smile. I like the leaves; did you variegate the greens on your roof or did the camera do that? Either way, they look nice. What a lot of work.

Thank you for your kind comments. I did spray green card stock with distress inks to give some variation to the coloring on the leaves, but not as much as I had in the first covering of the roof. Then I punched out the leaves and glued them on in overlapping layers. The leaves were actually the easy part. The fences are the most tedious part because I glued together 3 pieces for each section of fencing. I think I had 50 pieces to glue together, then paint.
