Ha, ha. I made this little gnome shadowbox for my partner in the wists swap. I think he turned out dang cute.


He has a mushroom and some paper butterflies to keep him company. He turned out a bit pudgy for the little shadowbox (like a real dummy I didn't measure first!) so I had to slice off his backside! Awkward!

Here's a pair of mushroom studs I made for the same swap:

And some multi-colored hearthstone beads--a good WoW crafting option when you and your partner are opposite factions!!! Cheesy

And this is a silly little whimsy I made for the whimsy swap.

Found this metal spoon thing at Crate and Barrel and thought it looked like a teensy frying pan!

Thanks for looking!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

All very nice! 

The colors and pattern of the 60's background in the shadowbox looks perfect with your items (and the jaunty cap of your mushroom).  And the sausages are really cute in their short-roundness--eggs too (don't understand how that's a "spoon" but guess there is some sort of scoop at both ends--good catch).

(Did you reheat the gnome to cut off his back, or do it while he was cold/hard?)

The big picture may be amazing but it's the little details that inspire.
