Paper houses

Hello ...
I hope you are enjoying your weekend ... we have had quite good weather which is nice and today my Brother and SIL came over to spend some time which was lovely ...
I have been busy catching up on laundry and the usual household chores and yesterday my son had to go to the hospital ... he has been experiencing pain in his eyes ... He went to the Walk In centre and when the usual blood test etc., showed nothing irregular - he was sent to the ER at the eye hospital where he had to wait for a few long hours to see a doctor ... Now when I am worried ... I always start to clean ... somehow it keeps me occupied ... so I sorted out a lot of things in my craft room ... Yes I did want to be with him but didn't push it ... him being 28 ... know what I mean? ... But thankfully he came home with a clean bill of health on his eyes ... now he has to see the GP this week ... so still a worrying time ... more cleaning to do me thinks ...
Aside from that I have a few photos of projects I have been fiddling with ... One things I love to do each week is visit Stef's blog to check out her Love Links ... a list she kindly compiles each week of the most amazing things ... I bookmark lots of them promising myself I WILL get around to doing them them ... but one I had to try straightaway was a birdhouse made from a book ... you can find the link HERE ... this is one talented lady I tell ya! ... so here are the first two I made ... 




Well I couldn't stop at one ... and anyway ... they are so very therapeutic ... and I couldn't stop at two either ... the idea was to make three different sizes like Korrie did (though I wish I had a table like hers ... sigh )so I started another smaller one ... but me being me ... I went a little off kilter and came up with a wall hanging ... 


I did a sort of 'half' house ... tore out the chunk of book I didn't use but left the cover on ... which I covered in papers and adhered to thick CS which I had also covered in paper ...


... those little pansies are real ... dried actually and oh so delicate ... I stuck the little lilac pearlie things in the centre ... they fell off from these ...


... pretty but again delicate ...


... and in case you're wondering ... the other half of the book I gave to my SIL ... who was merrily folding away as my Brother drove them home ...



You know what ... I'm still not sure about the door .... what do you think? ... maybe I should have gone with older books ... hmmm ... maybe next time ...

Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for stopping by
