Charity Building Block

I got this in the post today from the Masham Arts Festival organisers... a wooden 6cm square block of wood!

The idea is that artists/celebrities/(anyone really!) paint blocks around the theme 'home' for the charity Shelter. A great cause and sounded like fun so I volunteered to do one for them!

To fit in with the 'home' theme my plan is to turn the block into a little stable... will have two horses heads peering over stable doors on opposite sides and give it a nice tile roof I think! 6cm really is TINY so not sure if I will be able to pull it off but expect I'll have fun trying!

If anyone has any particularly pretty stables that I could use as inspiration then I'd love to see them- drop me an e-mail at! Thank you!

More info on the project here- I think they are still looking for artists to paint blocks if anyone else fancies it!
