Great job!  You turned a couple of mismatched orphans into a nice and serviceable set!  Awesome that you tackled several new things on this project, too.

Great makeover!  I think I'd glue down my "strategically placed items" that hide the imperfections just to be safe.  Wink

Speaking of sending out, I just checked the status of the package I sent off to annacharlotte and it left Portland yesterday which I like to think means she could get it on Monday.  Whee!

Oh my!  The felt houses certainly are adorable!  I"m amazed what skilled craftsters can do with felt (and polymer clay), because I just get stuck.  But, I think tiny houses are a great way to try new media and I am super excited about more rounds.

That inspired and inspiring clothes line has my mind churning with ideas!

And a turret?  No fair!

All the roofs on these houses are so awesome... I wish I'd approached mine a bit differently, but I really "needed" to use the imagery I did to go with my interior theme.  Drat!

Lmcbride, that IS a fantastic story and it sounds like if there were any cycle being repeated there, that you and your family have broken it.  

camelama - I LOVE that plaid bias tape.  Now, quit being a show-off.

Oh, this is so neat!  Smiley  I was so excited to see how you'd done it.  It looks great, and really sturdy.

Thanks!  It's a whole lot sturdier now that I've reinforced the paper.  If I do it again, layers of glued-together paper for siding, layers.   Wink

I forgot the pics of the packaging.  I used yarn to sew it to a thin cardboard (cereal box) like Barbies are packaged.

I want to move in and join the dance party. Roll Eyes

You 've used a cool format and design for the house - I adore it.  The windows and front door flaps are especially innovative.  I have no reccommendations - I think it's wonderful.

It should be pretty fun in there!  Not only is there an angel playing guitar, but there's a cupid aiming his arrow and a bier frau with steins and hot food.

Do I see a "type" of person who would enjoy making a Tiny House here?  My own house was under 700 sq ft when built in nineteen hundred and forty-two, but she had a full unfinished basement.  Somewhere along the line the basement was finished so now she's 1300-some AND has another bathroom in the basement.  But yeah, with about 3-4 people she feels full and there's not enough seats in any one room for more than that.

I sent this morning!  I think this is as close to a swap deadline as I've gotten. Sent annacharlotte my partner and annacharlotte the organizer the DC#.

amazing! I was so curious as to how you were gonna flat pack it!

Thank you!  Since figuring it out for this, my mind seems to be coming up with other media in which to do TheMistressT's Flat-pack Wee House (tm).  I hope there is a long and bright future for the Tiny House Swap!

And I'm thankful, MistressT, that you put that dragon in for scale.

I take my responsibilities as a craftster and swapper very seriously.

My first paper craft - at least, I think it's a paper craft - for the Tiny House Swap.  It's decoupage on balsa wood using sheet music (actually music lesson exercises), book parts, ink-jet printed clip art, Velcro and magnets. As I was preparing to pack it up the "hinges" started failing and in my attempts to fix it w/o changing the basic look a couple of other images were added, but I didn't take pics.  Ultimately I used clear packing tape to reinforce the whole thing.  I thought that the layers of Mod Podge would have made the paper strong enough to crease a bit, but it didn't make it strong enough to crease as many times as I'd done. I'm just glad it happened here and not at my partner's house! Undecided Anyway, any advice from the tremendously skilled paper craftsters will be much appreciated!
