  1. What's everyone working on?

    I can’t wait to see pictures!! This theme has me so excited! I just loved that story as a kid. Then when the Barbie dolls came out with the cutest big bad wolf... I had to get that too lol.  
  2. What's everyone working on?

  3. What's everyone working on?

    Anna, I LOVE those teapots! Your succulents turned out Great too! I saw this in real life with the broken flower pots  Wonderful Job!
  4. Shipping question

    I’m so happy you got that resolved! Many times, people don’t understand just how expensive it can be to ship. So glad you got you money back! 
  5. Shipping question

    I have all my houses professionally packed. That’s the only way to assure you’ll get the money back on the insurance if it’s damaged during shipping. I feel, if the buyer is willing to pay it all, then offer it. That way, you BOTH are protected . I make no money off of it and I let them know, I’m a professional builder, not packer. I’ve only had 2 packages end up damaged. The last time, it was totally UPS’s fault and they tried to NOT pay up. They did though because I did use a professional shipping company who went after UPS for the cla8m. Had it been me, I wouldn’t have gotten the money back on the claim and I would’ve had to pay my customer back all that money out of my own pocket. I say, if you ship, use a professional!

  9. The Buttercup 2017

    Thank you so much! It’s a sweet cute house that is so very easy to bash! It’s fun to recreate different looks for it every time.  
  10. The Buttercup 2017

    Thank you! I used Das clay and the last of my Creative Paperclay. When it’s painted, you can’t tell the difference  I still love creative Paperclay most. Less odors and my hands aren’t full of clay as I work with it because it doesn’t stick as much to my hands. My order won’t be here till next week though 
  11. Buttercup 2017 Thatch roof

    Thank you Monica! I’m having a ball doing this one too  
  12. Buttercup 2017 Thatch roof

    Thank you! I was going to leave all the brick exposed but then started doing the falling plaster. It’s so fun to be back at it  
  13. Buttercup 2017 Thatch roof

    From the album Buttercup 2017

    This is the clay work and stained glass windows of the Buttercup. So tomorrow, I have to finish the last little bit of the roof and the base/yard. Then, I can paint!  I wasn’t able to work on this today because I had a lot of other things on my plate. I can’t wait to get back at it! Yes, I decided to do the thatch roof on this one. I’ve only done it to 2 other houses before. Some parts already has the 1st (and 2nd) coat of paint on it. Other parts have nothing which is why it looks white still.

    Holly, Be safe and take care! these storms are so scary! I was at “Party City” Store (not sure if there’s one by you or not)  the other day and they have bags of white “glow sticks” 24 for only 5 bucks! They also have the torches too! I bought some white Igor ones and put them in our “Go Bag” that I bought for everyone in my family. They come in a lot of colors but the bright white ones are perfect for emergencies. Especially when you don’t have candles or are out of matches!
