hi and thanks for letting me join. thanks to lucy for introducing me to putz houses and pointing me toward this forum.

i'm a professional photographer - mostly retired now with covid limiting my freelance work.

when it looked like things were going to get weird in january and i was self quarantining, i started playing with mixed media - stuff i found in the desert. then i discovered sizzix, die cutting and making Village buildings.

i really love making houses! after making a few very elaborate pieces i am trying to simplify the product and make houses which look more like traditional putz houses. at least that is the plan.

thanks again for letting me join.

Welcome LaraH - Glad you found us! Would love to see the projects also...and no worries about the degree of ‘Putziness’ :) They will likely provide inspiration for someone in some way!
