Homecoming Gifts


My husband makes miniature houses as a hobby. He uses popsicle sticks and barbecue sticks . When he has a new idea on what his next project would be, he would usually stay up late just to finish it. His projects are usually displayed at home and I have also featured them on our arts & crafts blog.  He has actually sold a couple of pieces to those who really loved his work.

Here are some of his projects: (The watermark, by the way is that of our arts & crafts blog)



My sister-in-law and her husband were here a few weeks ago for a three-week vacation (the last time they visited the Philippines was seven years ago)and my husband decided to make Nipa huts (Bahay Kubo) as homecoming gifts for them. Aside from the 2 pieces of Nip hut that hubby gave them, they actually bought 3 more to give away to their friends and relatives back home.

Here’s what he came up with:


Their homecoming was really fun, the whole family had a great time bonding with them. We hope to see them again in a few years time.
