This came in the mail today for my birthday. A gorgeous card with the most beautiful messages, a really cute owl glasses case and money to spend on my trip to Melbourne. She is the most generous, thoughtful, beautiful person in the world. And I love her so much.

I am very grateful to my lovely blogging friend, Marina, for all her help and inspiration to making these fun little houses. Something I've wanted to do and a block I've loved for ages.
"Thought it might make more sense
It took me a few different combinations to work this way out, it works well for me 
Not sure if it's technically correct but if it works ...." Marina
"I have about 45 now I think
So much for just making a mini 4x4 lol"
