Hello everyone. I know that in our previous post, we promised to upload our latest arts/craft projects, particularly the miniature tree houses that we’ve made during the previous months. In as much as we want to post them right away, we decided to separate those that we made for other people (those that were sold) and those that were created as part of our collection. And to make a distinction as to which projects are available for sale, we have decided to make a separate Facebook page for them. The page is called Crafts by Juancho and on that page, we will post the different projects that we made for other people such as miniature tree houses, hanging lamp shades and miniature nip huts.
Also, once I have started sending out postcards again and have become active at Postcrossing again, I will start posting the different postcards I will receive from various states such as New York, California, and oakdale minnesota and various parts of the world. I am actually excited about it and hopefully I can begin building up our postcard collection again and replace those that have been lost when our house burned down over a year ago.
I hope you’ll keep an eye out for our updates here and once we’ve sort out the photos that we have of our new projects, we’ll post them here immediately.
Hello, everyone. First of all we would like to apologize for the lack of post during the past few months. It has been a hectic time for our family and I haven’t really found the time to update this site. I also haven’t had the opportunity to go back to sending postcards and being active at Postcrossing. I have been planning on taking a trip to the bookstore and stock up on some postcards but somehow, I haven’t really had the time for it. For now, I have just been browsing online and looking into some new postcards that may be already be available (aside from the fact that I am also looking into sites like musicians friend canada to look for a guitar that our youngest wants to buy from the money he earned from his summer job).
Anyway, even though there hasn’t been a new post lately, we have been busy making some arts/crafts projects and we can’t wait to share them with you in the coming days.
We noticed that a lot of our site’s visitors and readers are looking into our arts/crafts creations which is why we decided to feature more of them and have what we will call the #TreeHouse series. We have had some new design ideas and we have actually finished quite a number of them. We’re excited about sharing them with you and hearing about your thoughts.
We hope you’ll come check out the site in coming days and see our new projects. Yes?
Church architecture has always been an interest for us. From the most impressive and intricate designs that basilicas and cathedrals have to the simple but elegant churches and chapels, we have always been inspired by them.
For this craft project, we wanted to make miniature churches and the main material we used was illustration board. We first chose a design we like then we drew them on the illustration board to make a cut out pattern.
We also painted them before we glued them together. We made cut outs of the windows separately and painted them as well.
We then glued them together (a glue gun would come in handy for this one), and this is what we came up with. (Notice the miniature trees that we placed on the side of the main door? They are mainly made out of egg shells. Well do a separate post for that.)
We also placed a battery operated light (red for this one) inside to give it a more dramatic effect, making it look serene. It makes one feel like a private and serene ceremony is going on inside; like a wedding complete with all the wedding entourage, a gorgeous bride wearing a stunning gown, and an impressive wedding ring (that will replace the simple but unique promise rings here that the couple has been wearing).
Anyway, we hope that you find our new creations interesting and we hope that you keep a lookout for all our other new art/crafts projects. We have mad quite a number of tree houses in various designs so watch out for that.
