    Rosecake, your houses are so sweet and I love those colors! It’s worth joining this just to see all the awesome dwellings!

    ~Question~
    I keep second guessing my creations because making something so small is a challenge for me.

    So far, each piece I have created is on a 2.75 x 2.75 square. Is this size acceptable? The width is slightly too big for a penny sleeve.

    Also, I noticed everyone is cutting their house as the exact shape. Mine are a perfect square, where the background is slightly exposed. Is this OK?

    Thanks!

    Don't overthink it too much. They are just supposed to be smaller than ATC houses, but not smaller than inchie houses. I don't like to put too many restrictions on things...as letting creativity flow is the best way in my opinion. 2.75 square with a background sounds okay to me. And your art is always so lovely. If you want to PM something to me, I'll take a look. But otherwise, everything you've mentioned sounds within the parameters of the swap.

    My homes, constructed in Illinois, will find their way to your home, in CA, beginning tomorrow! Thanks for this fun swap, and I hope you enjoy the host-house you pick, nanner.

    This swap has inspired me to do a whimsical house art journal! This is the first entry.

    For anyone who loves whimsical houses of all sorts (like me), this is a great idea for an art journal theme! So cute! Hope you also post it in the art journal thread.

    Howdy, all! Hope things are good in everyone's "hood"!

    It's a good mail day here, as art has arrived from Lazyshadows and locatray! Beautiful work ladies. And I very much appreciate the extra houses.

    Mollie, those are splendid! Thanks for posting them and the update. (And P.S. I grew up in Southern Illinois and it's still a place I consider "home.")
