The kitties are still taking it easy…

cradle full of kitties

…but we’ve been busy! Saturday, we put the Christmas tree up in the master bedroom. It looks great! Today (Monday) my DDIL came by again to clean the scrapbook room for me, in prep for the holidays. Top to bottom, she did a wonderful job!

I didn’t think to take pictures until after we’d been working for a while, but here’s a before.

    Hi Rhonda I would like to try and make some Putz houses. Could you tell me how to begin? Do I need to buy special weight paper or craft tools? Is there a book or website you have found helpful? I would appreciate any help you can give me.

    Mary Jane, check out this post on my blog. It walks you through the process.

    I have a Pinterest board with links to other tutorials. You can see them here:

    I hope you will give these little houses a try! They are a lot of fun to make! If you have any questions, just ask!
