Some complications from getting my wisdom teeth cut out have killed my schedule. I'm gonna be a few days late sending.... T___T I've already pmed the right peoples though.

Look what the mail man brought me though to cheer me up! A totally fabulous package from lady4feet! This cheered me up so much and totally made me smile. <3 As you all know me and my mom split the package. She made half and I made half and in return lady4feet split what she was sending into 2 things. One set for me and one for mom. There are no pics of my holding my things because my face right now is really swollen. I look like a hampster with it's cheeks full of food. lol  Tongue

Here's what she made me first! Grin I had asked for a gnome plushie because I thought it would be sooo cute to have. She said it took her a few trys but look at the uber cuteness that she made for me. <3's~ It even has it's own mushroom home! ^_________^ And tucked inside with the little dear was the most cutest magnent ever! I totally love it. ^o^/

Now here is what she sent for mom! A super cute polymar clay gnome necklace that she said was the first time that she made something with it and it came out right. It sure did! Mom totally fell in love with it as soon as she saw it. <3's~ Grin She also made her a super cute gnome tote with a felt gnome blanket stitched onto it. Her stitches are sooo tiny and perfect!! We thought at first they were machine done they were so small. How did you get them so small and perfect? Whenever we try to blanket stitch it comes out all wonky and weird. >__>; I tried to get a close up of the stitches and the clay gnome but they kept coming out blurry. T__T;

And now mom modeling her new stuffs! Grin

Mom says: I totally love my tote bag! (I'm a tote bag freak, and this will be my most favorite tote bag now.) I really really love the necklace too. I'm wearing it right now in my pajamas. lol Thanks for everything! Grin



Yay! I'm glad you guys liked everything. I made extra polymer clay gnomes so I could pick the cutest ones for you guys and they're watching me everytime I sew.

I'm horrible at detailed photos too so sorry none from me either. I found if if make my stitches big it just makes me mad so whenever I need to handsew something I pop in a movie and sew away.

Sorry I'm so late in posting, I've been on vacation for a few days and we just got internet access today.  I'm glad you like the things I sent!  Yes, I painted the bag freehand.  I drew gnomes on a piece of paper until I liked how it turned out, then I painted it.  Tsuki_Tsubasa, I really like what you got!  The necklace is my favorite thing.  It is so cute!

I think I'm suffering from cute-overload.  All of this gnomey stuff is really awesome!!   Smiley

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.
