This WAS going to be a Church Mouse House but things sort of got away from me. So, instead, I'd like to share "The Makers Church" which isn't exactly a church... more like a conversion  Wink

This is made from the same kit I've made a number of times, I just added a tower to it.

The front door is made from the cover of an old, discarded hymnal.

I did think of putting bells in the tower but some people say that fairies don't like bells so I opted for a story room instead.

There's a knotted cloth rope to climb up there.

My favourite room is this messy little studio...

Wow - this is amazing!  I love your attention to detail, especially the craft basket and the birds nest.  How long did it take to make?


I have lots of train tickets (I get the train most days), if anyone wants some for papercrafting just send me a PM Smiley

Oh! I am enchanted! This is amazing! Love the craft room. There are so many things to see in each corner of the church! I've never seen anything like it. Can you direct me to where you might have talked about the kit you are using or techniques since it sounds like you've been at this for sometime already. Guessing there might be a detailed write up of on of your previous pieces.

I particularly like the little "spills" on and under the craft table.

I love this so so much... I want to take it home, cradle it, and spend hours looking at it, and finding new things. It looks painfully real, and I just wish I could shrink to the size of that house, and live there, happily ever after.

Absolutely STUNNING as always Knickertwist.  I want to be even smaller so I can climb into your tiny houses and live there forever.  Cheesy

It's turned out beautifully! So many little details, but I think my favourite is the little wine picnic on the roof. Adorable!
