Yay!  I'm glad you liked everything!  I was nervous, with this being my first official swap and all.  

The mushroom stamp was made with the tutorial from maximumRABBIT here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=339490.0.

The picture was watercolor, you're right.  I was going to frame it and send it, but the USPS likes to break things (and I see they bent the heck out of it even though I put the cardboard in the envelope) so I didn't want to take the chance.

I made the mini gnome plushie because you said you didn't have a whole lot of room for knick knacky things so this guy can travel with you in your purse or something if need be.  Smiley

And I threw in the plate because it was on super sale at Jo-Anns and just so freaking cute I couldn't help it, and the little purse/wallet thingy (even though it was neither gnome-ish or mushroom-y) was just too fun to make!   Smiley

Thanks for a great first swap, I'm now totally addicted!   Cheesy

I'm really glad you liked everything Shadowbox. I love how the shirt came out for your daughter as well. I really questioned myself with that one. Most of all I'm just glad to see that Carl, the gnome not peepaw, is happy in his new home.

I received from kwality570 today!  Here's what I got:

Stickers, which I love!  I heart all woodland creatures!



I have to confess that I'm not exactly sure what this is, lol, but it is very well made!  The embroidery is spot on!



And I got a shirt which is fantastic!  The gnome is very cute and there's also stars, I love stars!  My so and I are leaving for an adventure shortly and I will be wearing it!



And lastly, a secret holding can!  I call it that because I could not ,for the life of me, figure out how to open it! lol, but that little washer does the trick!  Are the gnome and shrooms hand drawn?  If so, you did an awesome job!



Thanks so much!  I love everything!

I woke up from a nap and found a box on the front porch (and two packages from ebay)

Mushroom earrings and a little gnome in a bottle necklace. 


Gnomie notecards


Little gnome softie.  I  might bring him to work to keep me company.


She made me a t-shirt too (long sleeved)!  This is the front


and this is the back.   Love it.  It will be handy when the cooler weather gets here.


Thanks JuliminustheE!  I love the package you sent and I'm glad you like what I sent you.
