I can't look at a box of McCormick's food coloring without thinking about it actually being a box of gnomes. (They look  like this in case you've never see them Smiley )

I made my vision come true a few weeks ago  Grin I finished up my red food coloring in a batch of homemade play-dough for the kiddo- and decided while he was playing with his new dough to get out some paper clay and play too. I painted and sealed with mod podge after they dried.


I put them to live in my little doll head planter that I made about a year ago or so. She was so missing a gnome in her head, don't you think  Smiley









and on the window above my kitchen sink where it sits atop some pine cones and a birds nest (presents from my kiddo  Smiley)



Thanks for peeking!

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know
