Thank you for the "add." I am happy to be here. I found my way to this message board by way of researching how to make putz houses. I still have yet to make one, but I just love them and can't wait to get started! A couple of years ago, I bought a couple of cheap ceramic Christmas village houses and repainted them to look like Halloween houses. I was hooked and have repainted several of them. When I paint one, I make up a story about the house--who lives/lived there, how the house came to be. Now I want to create putz houses--this time for Christmas. I love crafting and sewing. I recently took up calligraphy. I either have numerous hobbies or just one big one, however you want to look at it. I am a medical writer by profession. I work full time and have a teenager at home, so I am quite busy. Finding time to myself is a bit of a struggle, and I treasure any time I can spend in my wonderful craft room.

Your story sounds much like mine. I fell in love with the houses and researched how to make them and knew that I had to be a part of this forum. It is a great place to learn about making little houses.

Welcome.
Lucy
