 Post subject: Happy House Hunting!
PostPosted: Mon Nov 12, 2012 10:17 pm 
I wanted to send a quick hello. I got into these darling little paper houses a few years ago. Once she saw my interest, my mother passed along 2 small houses from Czechoslovakia that were her great-aunts. I have been building and buying them ever since. My collection covers all sizes and I can't seem to decide on which I like the best.
Now that I am back to working full-time (took 2 years off to finish an IT degree), I don't seem to have as much time these days to build new little houses, but I have several past projects that I will try to photograph soon and share with you all. With Thanksgiving being only 10 days away, I am not sure if I will get more than the 2 sitting here on my desk, but I am going to try. (Um, somehow I need to finish the 5 or 6 ornaments also in progress in the next week to.)
Glad to meet you all and am really looking forward to the tips within these pages--some of my ideas for building better houses haven't worked and having an expert resource(s) will be awesome. The project I most want to do is to build a paper house of a chateau we stayed in a couple of years ago while in France--but I really, really need to get more experience building and getting better at it before I attempt something so complicated. :D
