A Recent Development

Look at the cute little neighborhood that popped up on my front steps today! I've got big plans for this development!


  1. look forward to seeing it come to live!

  2. Did you do them? Or a totally awesome someone give them to you? I know they are going to be wonderful...can't wait to see.

  3. wouldn't that be awesome to find this on your doorstep as a surprise?! I went back and read what I wrote, and it does sound like maybe that's what happened, but no....
    I had a bunch of scrapwood pieces from friends' home construction business (they let us go dumpster diving one fateful night: http://thingswithwingsartjournal.blogspot.com/2010/03/dumpster-diving.html ) Some of the pieces were even already cut into triangles!
    while the boys played outside one afternoon, I wood-glued scraps together to make houses. They'll get the Things With Wings treatment yet! And I have to find a creative way to hang them. They're heavy buggers! anyone got any suggestions?

  4. i am so drawn,
    espec. lately,
    to house shapes
    looking like this
    & am so happy to see
    something stirring here
    & can't wait
    to see these
    take wings.

  5. Oh, those have potential!!! I LOVE house shapes!!! Can't wait to see what you do with them!

  6. Jill, I'm so glad that I found you guys. I love this style!!

    I also see that you participate in art shows--which I do also. I love to read about other artist's experiences with shows in other parts of the country. I'm doing a show near Rochester, NY this coming weekend, which I'm looking forward too.

    I'll be looking forward to reading of your summer AND enjoying all of your art--I'm a new fan!!

  7. Ooooo... I made some houses from wood block at Christmas time and it was a blast! I CAN'T wait to see what your plans are! This makes my heart sing.
