I receive a newsletter from May Arts ribbon (www.mayarts.com). They sell wholesale only, but they have a fun Blog with lots a ideas, tutorials, giveaways and challenges. I finally decided to participate in a challenge.
May Arts sent me four ribbons and I was to create a Christmas project using each of them. Here it is:
I call it "The Gnomes at Home for Christmas"
I found these Gnome couples for sale a few years ago and fell in love - The lady reminds me of my image of the perfect Grandma: A big smile and a big lap to hold the grandchildren on.

They didn't sell in my little stall in "Wishes and Dreams". Wrong clientele - mainly people looking for Jewelry, purses, and commercially made stuff. I'm putting these up for sale in my ETSY shop...
