Combined comments for all!

Moniqueramsey - that cat house is funny and the details are great. For some reason I especially like the fish at the front door. Makes me think of the older style tavern signs of shaped, thick wood. I can see cats passing down the neighborhood street and seeing those fish, like a tavern plank.

Kosmicgirl - your rounded roof houses are so cool! I like your layered cutwork on the bird house. Of course, the observatory is amazing, too! Are you interested in personal swaps for inchie houses?

Zalphinian - Love the graveyard house and your stand up trees! The corrugated log cabin is a clever idea and so fun that you added a Tardis.

Blupaisan - the shingles on your house are so neat. I like your instruction sheet, too. That is something I should reserve time to do, myself. I don't think I even put a note or single word in my envelopes! Your fabric house to Bushbaby is like a dimensional patch and I adore those little hearts!

Loves2experiment - the house I sent you had a pet (cat, dog, whatever you prefer) door in the back, but yours ended up too high off the ground, so I added a step so the pet could reach the door. I ran out of time (bad me) to make the pet and landscape details (maybe I can make them now that the deadline is fulfilled) so you have no way to know it is a pet door. Now that you said wee chair, I can absolutely see that. Funny how a little phrase makes you look at something in a new way. And the windows are clear plastic from packaging, the window muntins are watercolor paper that I inked black. Today I also learned that the word for those bars separating panes of glass in a window are called muntins or muntin bars.

Teag - Excellent idea to have a coffee house! Every neighborhood needs a java stop!

Cackle - your pastel cottage is precious! It looks like a fairy princess icing candy house. But I have made a special place in my Fantasy Neighborhood (it lives in my Crafty Heart) for that mossy cottage you made for Yoopidou; it is beautiful.

Really amazing work from everyone! Is everyone available for personal swaps for inchie houses? I would love to have my own Craftsterville!

I've had a blast the last few days - ALL my houses arrived almost at the same time,
and my crafting table has been covered in glue and clips and all things needed
for building houses Smiley

First out;
The Library by alwaysinmyroom
It's a beautifully done little house, with the most adorable roof top. I actually thought
of doing a similar roof on a house, but didn't figure out how to, really. And behold,
alwaysinmyroom read my mind and delivered! Smiley



Second:
The Circus byZalphinian
I was so thrilled to get a round house! It's cute and adorable, and Zalph made the
tiniest little circus animals to go with it. She wrote, that she had wanted to create
a foam base for them to stand on, but didn't know if that would fit the swap criteria.
I asked her if I could make my own base, and she agreed. I didn't have any fun foam,
but I had some green paper that fit her tent perfect, and I hope I've done her vision
justice!

 

And last, but not least:
The Flower Shop by teag
It's so bright and happy! I'm in love with the door (I'm guessing you made it with poly clay?)
and the touches of glitter and glam all over Smiley I'm so glad it was in one piece, the post office was
not very friendly with the envelope; there was a HUGE hole in it.  Shocked



And finally, my corner of Cypress Farms:



Thanks for being awesome swap partners, you guys! Next house in Cypress Farms will be the
"Kosmicgirl Kissing Booth"; where residents get one for free!  Cheesy

Thanks! Smiley I was hoping the little bird inside would have been visible through the "glass" roof, but alas,
the lattice work isn't fine enough. But I know it's there Smiley
You could always PM me about a swap!

So many great houses have been posted that I don't know where to begin! I love the idea of using corrugated, and that last set of houses is wonderful. How clever to use a book for a library roof! Nice work, everyone!

These three houses are beautiful. I love the library with the book roof and all the details like the book page window. The circus animals are incredibly small. The flower shop is bright and cheery.

Yea!  My final inchie house has arrived from Fancy Butch!  It matches Cackle's pastel cottage perfectly. Cheesy

This note was enclosed:
Dear Goldilocks, if you find yourself in the Woodbury Woods please drop by for some porridge.



And here's Woodbury Woods as seen in the house of Wise One.  Nice, eh?
