I'm so glad to see so many people chugging along and all those fab links!

I still haven't touched my house... but it's only because I've been so busy making other stuff. I've been turning some ideas around in my head and I was thinking I might do a Christmas Pixie House/Sugarplum Fairy Cottage or something Mother Goose themed or The Crafters House. I haven't quite worked it out in my head yet.

I picked up some Elmer's Glue today so that I can paint the outside of my house. I want to do a wood floor and I have tons of Popsicle sticks, but what are you guys using to cut them? I don't have any saws or power tools......  Maybe heavy duty scissors?  Huh

Do you have a straight edge and an exacto knife?  That's what I'd try. 

I've got a bunch of scrapbook paper 'wallpaper' cut out and am reviewing my glue choices.  I'm so messy, I'm worried I'll screw it up.  What are you guys using to glue paper?

I also do not have wood working tools...I will confess to using my jewelry nippers ...I also used scissors and sandpaper since the edges were all jagged...hubby said to try a dry wall saw...it is small and manageable...but not for me it wasn't...

Missingwillow--I am using Elmers or everything...I just watered it down for my wallpaper...I even used it to age my walls with cracks...

Mix a little brown paint in with it and it works like Mod Podge to seal the paper and age it all at once--if you are going for that look

What are you guys using to glue paper? 

My favourite thing to glue paper is rubber cement. You don't get those nasty air bubbles or wrinkles with rubber cement but you don't have much repositioning time with it.

it helps to put the glue on with a brush...just be sure to clean it...I have ruined many brushes by forgetting to rinse out the glue... I have never tried rubber cement...does it have a smell?

It absolutely stinks and it's extremely flamable... but it's great stuff.

I used heavy duty scissors to cut the popsicle stick flooring.  The ends all came out uneven but I think it adds character, makes the floors more unique Wink
