My partner received! yay!  She's going to post pic's tomorrow, but I couldn't not post a pic of this because while I have been crochetting for years, I am newish to amigurumi, and he turned out adorable, if I do say so myself. I actually made her a dragon too, but I'll leave them pic's for her.

I would like to say for the record I agonized over the chocolate-on-top or chocolate-on-bottom thing. For the sake of melty cuteness, it went on top.

I received! Oh man, I was so excited. And, apparently, so was my daughter who pilfered my goodie and took it to her collection, the little snot.

How stinkin' cute is that? He's also sitting in my kid's stroller, but I digress.

His hat and belt come off.  The buckle on the belt is very buckle-like as well. awesome detail!

and look, the little gnome smuggler in question.

Since my partner and I sent on the same day I'm hoping she gets my package today as well!

13  Gnome Child, a halloween costume belatedly posted! in Halloween Costumes by gnomedrops on: March 06, 2011 10:30:45 AM

I have, even as a child, always been a lover of all things gnome.  Hence the name, right? If only it were raining gnomedrops.  I was luckily enough to breed into a family that felt the same. My mother in law collects them, and even has many handed down from her grandma.  They might not be collectors items to some people, but we adore them.  Gnome-loving is a lot like cat-loving. Not every one gets it.

Luckily, my mother in law does, and there for her son, my husband, understands my strange desire to gnome everything, including our darling two year old child, who in turn, also loves gnomes.   She wears this costume all the time, even now, and actually wore it to meet Santa, and will be wearing it when we go to the Gnomeo And Juliet movie in theaters. I She's the perfect little gnome.  I actually managed to make this costume with a materials on hand, which says a lot about my hoarding habits.

The skirt is more or less a two layered (both lined) circle skirt that I cut into a square instead.  Then I added a thick waist band made out of heavy wool felt (it's what I had on hand).  The leiderhosen are made of the same material, and embroidered with tiny flowers.  They button right into the waist of the skirt.  You can kind of see the layers in these pictures, top layer is polka-dotted, and the bottom is a soft green.  I wanted to get some better pic's but she's two (a very tall two, I know) and more or less permanently mobile.

She's like a freaking big-foot. Impossible to capture on film.

The hat is just more felt I had, and it actually fit her head perfectly, for which I was lucky.  It stayed on through some mild wind and didn't bug her to much.  I filled it lightly with poly-fill to keep it upright.

This picture is just for funzies.  I edited a beared on her.  She looks exactly like her grandpa with it.  He's kind of gnome like too.

C and C welcomed!

14  'Negative Space' black and white silhouette cameo painting in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by gnomedrops on: February 28, 2011 08:16:44 AM

I made this for my living room wall. I'd like, eventually, to cover the entire thing in various paintings, by myself and others.   I toyed with a few different head and hair shapes, but I really liked the beehive.

however, the picture looks a little sterile to me.  I think it needs something, I just don't know what.

Any ideas?
