Meet Frederick.

He is a rare breed of Garden-Elf. Please, do not mistake him for a Gnome. He has some terrible self-harming tendancies and cannot handle another blow to his squishy stuffed self-esteem.

Frederick was made for a forum swap, and travelled across Australia to meet his new Mummy. Many months later, He was found sitting glumly in my meter box, sobbing quietly, covered in Unclaimed stickers. He decided he needed to find himself, who he really was, and thought it was time to be brave. Frederick had gotten quite a taste for travelling on his trip, and revealed to me he would like to journey across the world, meeting new people and discovering more about himself and the world along the way.

Heres how you can help. Frederick doesnt know anyone. He needs a few places to stay, and a few people to help send him on throughout his journey. Maybe show him the sights, take a few happy snaps of him for his family back home, and give him a few souvenirs to hang onto along the way.

If you are interested in helping Frederick out by allowing him to be a house guest with you for a short while (hes very tidy, doesnt eat, and doesnt take up much space!), please shoot me an email at [email protected] with your address details.

Once I have an initial batch of people who are willing to take Frederick, I will map out an itinerary and the peoples names and locations here. When its your turn, you can take a few pics of him at your favourite locations and mail them to me, decorate him in a souvenir (eg. a brooch from your area, a new ribbon, some freckles..whatever you like), fill in a page or 2 in his travel journal, then you can mail him onto the address provided to reach his next location!

I will update his page on my blog (http://lickmycupcakes.wordpress.com/frederick-the-traveller/) with pictures and stories from his journey as he goes. I cant wait to see what crazy adventures he gets up to!

Me & Freddy.

Frederick is so cute! And I like the background story, explains why he looks a little stressed Smiley. There will be another round of the Roaming Gnome Swap soon, they say at the end of February, if Frederick can stand being the only elf in a gnome swap, maybe this could be a start for his travels. Smiley Or you could aks the organizers to make it a Roaming Elves and Gnomes swap this time Smiley
