Cardboard houses

Hello friends :)
I have been keeping myself very busy over the last few weeks following my own excitement. It's amazing how nice it feels to listen to your intuition and then do what it tells you. Sometimes I come up with seemigly random things such as a desire to make a little cardboard house. But what all these have in common is that while i'm doing these projects I feel happy and inspired. And who knows where this will lead? So here are two little cardboard houses made purely for the love of it.

Here's the first one I made out of magazine back covers. Frankie and Artichoke to be precise. Both always have such great imagery. This house is a response to the still existing graphic designer/lover of architecture in me. I used craft glue to put it together.

This is the second little house I built. This one is made from scrap cardboard and has been painted with water colour on the outside and markers on the inside. It is a direct expression of my love for Polish folk-art and those old Eastern European villages. I love it!

The roof comes off for easy access to the interior. I think my daughter will move her fairy family in here.

These are beyond amazing. They surpass anything I could dream of, even after seeing your eyes light up as you told me about making them.

Wow! You are very very talented. Very.
