In some of the blogs I read there is a tradition of "Wordless Wednesday". Posting picture with no text to describe it other than the post title. I thought about this for a fleeting second as I viewed your art. Then I realized it doesn't fit. I wish I could see all the print! I'm fascinated. Beautiful. I will have to get you to meet Abesari's mom. You two have something in common.

Well thanks for wanting to know more!

This is the last wee house for my little friend, Marian. Her Dad's an assitant professor at Shippensburg University in Pa. I posted this photo for Marian so she could tell me what she would like to have inside.

The house is made from her Dad's business card, which has a cupola printed on it. I am guessing the cupola is significant to some building on campus so it seemed natural to include it as an architectural detail on his building.

Marian starts chemo in Philly on Monday. I am hoping she gets a chance to see this before making the trek across state. Somehow, I think their family will be too busy for blogs this weekend.

Hi! I was wondering if you could maybe do a how-to of your little buildings? I'd like to try it but I could use some instruction.... maybe a lot of instruction.

....a how to.......hmm...I make my houses with a lot of guessing and "eyeballing".....but maybe I can do a "how to" using a series of photos.
