Here are a few of my current works. I made 2 Springtime houses - one is called "Bunnies in the Garden - Springtime at the Miller's Place". It is based on a Candy Corn house pattern I made a long time ago. The other is another tudor-style house called "Irish Cottage - St. Patrick's Day house". It is posted in the Holiday section as well. I'm including a mixed media project called "Hello Spring" because it's all cardboard and made just like the little houses.

I hope everyone is doing well. Ya'll take care.

Cool projects Lucy! I love the roofs on both houses!! The tree is really cool too, doesn't even look like cardboard! Did you paper mache it? Now I want to eat a chocolate bunny... :)

Thank you, Brian.

Yes. The tree is paper mache. I am getting better at making tree bark.

Thank you, everybody.

There are actually 2 bunnies. One is hidden behind the door in the trunk of the tree.
