 Post subject: Hello from Texas
PostPosted: Fri Jan 12, 2018 8:21 pm 
i have been investigating this site for about three years now and I’m excited to finally come around and begin this craft. I have been intrigued with architecture and decorating since I was very young, perhaps starting, with Legos and then with House Beautiful magazines as a teen. Later I designed and built a Spanish style house in Mexico. In the past 10 years I have been an avid gingerbread house maker up until I discovered these little houses. One day at my friends house in Guadalajara there was a set of five completely white Putz houses on display. They glistened and glowed and their magical charm stirred my imagination. Ever since I have wanted some of my own. So here I am hoping that by joining this forum that I can be pushed and motivated to start Putzing. I am considering to begin my adventure of creating with the Pack O’ Fun set. Any thoughts about the best project to start with? Thank you for excepting my membership and I am looking forward to meeting/chatting with all of you.

Ellarie, sorry for the delay in approving your first post. The system was supposed to give me a "heads up" but didn't.

Anything you post from now on should show up immediately.

- Paul

Hi and welcome. I think you'll find a world of info and inspiration here. As a beginner Putzer myself, it has taught me much.
