Check out this article in Coast Magazine.

​​Coast Magazine was in the market to cover a tiny house... so I lent mine to the cause. Here's a LINK.


In 2008 I was casting about for a rental property and came across this small, somewhat rundown place, in the League City/Kemah area. I was about to put in an offer when Hurricane Ike blasted us, and I promptly forgot about this place. 


Then, in 2015 I was looking again and to my surprise the itty-bitty "petite retreat" was back on the market! Hello! How weird is that? Now it was Margaritaville meets World Market. Time for a major redux!

PAPIER-MACHE TODAY

By Sheila McGraw


BACK IN PRINT BY POPULAR DEMAND!!!

"This attractive, copiously illustrated, and easy to use how-to-do-it book touches all the bases."
-- Kliatt

Out of print since 2007, Papier-Mâché Today is back in print for a new generation of crafters of all ages. Clear instructions accompanied by color photos convey how to make 16 projects including home décor items, animal characters, Monsters, and human figures.

A "Read This First" chapter gives the essentials on the papier-mâché craft, tools and materials (newspaper, cloth and wallpaper paste), techniques, painting, finishing and troubleshooting. Special techniques include graphics, antiquing, splatter, sponge painting and textures.

The author explains all forms of papier-mâché construction and provides an extensive section on finishing techniques. Color photographs on each page reveal the beautiful results of this satisfying craft. Papier-mâché is an accessible and rewarding craft for people of all ages.
