New Projects

Hubby saw that we have accumulated a lot of cardboard around the house that he decided to make use of them. He made miniature houses, a pizza place and a retail store and painted them with acrylic based paint.

Here’s a photo of what he came up with:

A Profitable Hobby


Aside from collecting stamps and coins, my husband likes to make miniature houses which are mostly made out of popsicle sticks and barbeque sticks. He usually makes them at night while watching the evening news. The projects that he made were initially intended to be part of his personal collection but friends and neighbors who have seen what he has made liked them so much that they offered to buy them (they said they were going to give them away as gifts to friends). Hubby is happy, of course, because he’s not only able to do something that he really enjoys doing but he also gets to earn from them. Not bad, eh? 

Here are some of the miniature houses he has made; the second photo is of a miniature garden which was recently bought by a neighbor:

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.

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.
