Happy New House!

Happy New Year! I wanted to share a Christmas present that I made for my Sister-in-Law's husband. The couple moved into their first house this past summer. My husband's side of the family draws names among the siblings for the holidays and I picked Luke. I knew exactly what I wanted to make him. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo of the framed project, but here it is, right before going into the shadow box. And here's a photo of the actual house.
