YOE: February's craftalong theme!

*Dressed for Winter swap participants don't freak out....the swap is still going on, I just need to get February's theme up for everyone crafting along with YOE.

Gnomes are so enchanting.....grumpy happy little workers in pointy hats and shoes....with beards so thick you can't see their faces at all!

They go home to their cute little snow covered gnome homes and sit in front of the fire with a mug of warm grog.

makes me think of this postcard again...which made me think of our theme for this month....


February's theme: a "gnome home" ornament for your YOE tree.

Challenge: Use a different medium that you usually do. Try something different!

Activity: go to see the Gnomeo and Juliet movie. You can always blame it on me :-)

For inspiration, try places like flickr, etsy and google......I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

Have fun and don't forget to post your creations...

I love this theme! We're anxiously waiting for the movie to start next week so we can see it. Hopefully it will provide some inspiration too. I can't wait to try this theme! Now I just have to think of a medium I don't usually use. I love a challenge!
