In the meantime, a quick fun link:
I have also transferred the below from a blog post I made on my 12Create blog on 12 February:
"This year I am entering the HBS Creatin Contest (Miniatures). I received the kit that is the base of the contest in the mail last week. I am currently dry fitting it together. I will then make a decision as to whether I want to make any changes to the kit or make it up as it is. Unfortunately I received two right hand sides of the porch area but I am not too worried about it as I think I will change the porch area anyway to fit in with the idea I have in mind. With the Creatin Contest it is usual not to reveal too much until the actual reveal of the projects in February next year, but I will probably include in my posts some of the things I will make as part of the project."
