Sorry it's been so long!

It seems like there just isn't enough time to get everything done. I've been gathering supplies for the wedding decor but haven't even had time to do much with those. However, I will make time for a new mini project. We just got a Hobby Lobby in our county - just 20 minutes away! Before I had to drive almost an hour. Not a huge distance but too far for just a craft stop. Not anymore. ;-) I've been looking at the cardboard house boxes for quite some time, whenever I did get a chance to stop at Hobby Lobby. I usually had enough other stuff to get that I passed on by. Today I finally got one to turn into a half scale cottage. Watch for updates. I also got some really cool metal ribbon that will work really well for cornice trim and a bottle of model glue. The rest of the things I purchased are for the wedding. But I had a fun time wandering the new store with my extremely patient DH. Of course, we started our day at Rural King which is his favorite store, LOL.

Hello De, :)
I can so relate. I am in SW Indiana. My drive is about a half hour to Hobby Lobby. I've been eyeing those little paper mache houses for a while but couldn't think of what to do with them. Can't wait to see what you come up with.
Glad to hear that Hobby Lobby is opening new stores despite the controversy.

That's great that you have a HL close to you now. I have one 5 minutes away and do spend a lot of time there. I too had looked at that house and wondered what one might do with it so I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
Have a great week,
Gina

No pressure here, LOL. You've all been looking at those houses, too, but didn't know what to do. I hope my little house will live up to expectations. ;-)

A cardboard house to work on, now that sounds like my cup of tea ! I am going to have to look into that, there is a new Hobby Lobby in our area too.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with it !
