our lovely organizer received her box of fun things today but she is feeling sicky and is resting. she said to post some pics and she'll follow up with action shots so here goes...

i tired to stick pictures together to take up less space
here is a covered retractable tape measure, the front and back of a needle book, and three funny little pencil toppers



two marble magnets. i've never made these before but they sure are easy! it was tough to find images that were small enough though. i gotta work on my computer/printer skillz so i can shrink stuff up for more of these.



some photo cards with envelopes, more envelops i folded from colour photocopies out of that big book of gnomes and some gnome notes to go with them (20 envelops, i had SO many pictures!).



the one thing she asked for, a clean/dirty dishwasher indicator thing. it's got magnets in it to make it stick to the machine.
disgruntled gnome likes a tidy kitchen i guess...



book mark with wee little teeny gnome bead and a gnome journal cover (i copied this image and idea directly from the other gnome swap gallery, i love it.)



"someone" told me that the capn is maybe starting up a business so here is a business card holder with sculpy mushrooms. the caps are from these funky old earrings i've been saving forever and didn't have any idea what to do with until now.



gnome home! i bought a wood burning tool for this craft and i totally dig it!



big stuffy, larger than i usually make them.



my first ever felted thing, it's got a wooden bead for a head and is built around a bendable armature for posability. this wool came to me in a personal swap from Jane Doe and i can't thank her enough, she sent me all kinds of colours and the perfect wool for a beard, just look at that stuff! another friend in BC send me the felting needles. this craft is awesomely fun, i'm going to do lots more of it!




i hope you like everything M! and i sure do hope this lot makes up for all the hours of cutting and stitching in those wicked circle skirts you made us  Wink Smiley.

Wow Monkey! Everything you made is great, but I shouldn't be surprised- you rock! I am loving the business card holder and the stuffie. It's all so great! Wonderful job and what a lucky cap'n!

Holy molasses, MonkeyThumb! I'm lovin' everything, but especially the clean/dirty magnet (hilarious!) and the gnome door. My absolute fave, though, is the notecard with the pic of the gnome butts - that is one of the most awesome things I've seen lately!

Woah!  I love *everything* that you sent!  The gnome home is my favorite.  That must have taken alot of time and patience for you to burn all of the detail.  Great job!   Grin

thanks guys! actually, the wood burning tool is super easy to use and does stuff fast, Really fast! gotta watch out, i was using a piece of paper as a line guide and nearly set it on fire! the smell of singed wood was in my room for days too, it was so nice.
that note card with the bums makes me chuckle each time i see it. i totally and completely adore that one, who knew gnomes moon? so funny!

I've had my wonderful swap package from dragonflyducky since Saturday and am only now posting photos.  Darn kids not letting me use my own computer......
great box full of goodies!
Next the most wonderful thing ever!  Then a pouch to hold my crochet and knitting notions, a super cute pin cushion I love pincushions, and a bunch of gnome note cards. She made the stamp herself!  I just love the note cards!!!
And Gnome stitch markers!!


And did I say I JUST LOVE MY SWAP ITEMS>  I have some serious swap anxiety..... and of course I forgot to put in a goodie and my note so thats going out in the mail later today.
