2014-02-18 09.22.10How is everyone doing on their Tiny House Swap projects? I must admit a couple of things. Creating tiny houses is harder than it seems. And some of my experimentations are UUURGHHH! The blue stitches on my embroidery was nice and taut when it was in the hoop, but once I removed the hoop I found them quite crappy. Also, all of my wooden houses are mocking me, like the proverbial blank piece of paper. I love them in their plain, unadorned state, and am afraid of putting a mark on them. It hasn’t dampened my enthusiasm however. Puzzles waiting for me to discover the solutions. It’s my hope that you are having fun with your own puzzles!

  1. I actually want to pull my own brain out and punt it into traffic. …my wooden blocks would be an empty pint ice cream carton! Think switching gears is in order.

    the houses cut from the map are gorgeous, and I very much like your unadorned wooden houses, too…

    cheers!

    I love all your houses! This project has been so much fun. I love how it kick-started me to think in 3D and to delve through my raw materials. I feel like it’s fueling other parts of my life as well. I’ve shared some of my houses on Instagram: http://instagram.com/patlongoria. I finished a red barn (from the wood from a clementine crate) and am working on a log cabin from balsa wood scraps.

    My unadorned houses continue to sit on the lively blue studio table, mocking me.
    Thinking of sending a “village of blanks” to my partner and letting her decide if she wants to “gussie them up”.
    But.
    Now, as I type that, it sounds incredibly lame and preeeetty much like a cop out.
    So.
    As Mr. 17 lays in bed, miserable and swollen to puffer fish proportion thanks to his extensive oral surgery, perhaps I will kick myself in the ample posterior and make a commitment to something?
    One can always hope.

    P.S. I’m in deep love with the blue & gold on grey stitchery piece. I suggest you reconsider your lack of positive emotion for it.
