Ok, here's how it works.  You work during the week and on Tuesday, you post what you made.  It's a way of getting more folks interested in this board.  If nobody is interested, I won't do this again.  But for today, here's my post for Toybox Tuesday.

It's an old fashioned board game which I made from a chunk of plywood and a dowel.  It's called Nine Men's Morris and it's played similar to Tic-tac-toe.  I painted a pattern on it, because I really don't like the look of plywood.

I remember this game - My Dad made me a version of this years and years ago!! Your execution of it is great - I like the painted board. I want to play! I want to play!

So for ToyBox Tuesday, do we post things we've made in this thread? I love the idea. I'm not sure I have a toy to post this week - I'll have to dig through my craft pictures and see what I can come up with Smiley.

At this point I would say post whatever you have, just so we can get this started. 

And, yes, post in this thread.

I found a little toybox guy that I haven't posted yet Smiley.

My offering for ToyBox Tuesday is a zombie frog sock doll named Henson. I made him for the Creepy Cute swap a few months ago.





Hope you like him!

Your sock doll is cute.  I'll bet whoever got this one, loves it.

This is jerpie, a sweet little guy I made for my best friend's baby on the way...

Jerpie!! What an adorable little guy. The details are so impressive. I love how you did the ears and his facial expression is priceless. What is his body made out of? It looks so soft. Perfect for a baby.

Thank you for sharing him!!

Yeah, that fur looks like you could sink your whole hand into it.  Nice job.
