Gnomes in the Cupcake Forest

With a digital camera, a tripod, some Mac software, and a little set I sewed/built, I'm making my first stop-motion animation. It is a million times more fun than I expected (especially since I thought it would be soul-crushingly wearisome), and this week I'm in the process of turning nearly 1,000 stills into a moving picture. It's an uhurried process, but check up on me in December, when I'll debut your new favorite 1-minute movie about gnomes who live in cupcake houses.

  1. Hi Aimee, I didn't realize that the ornament exchange was set up for pairs, and we give to each other. So you can imagine my surprise when the ornament I received was from you, and you are the one I give one to! I was trying to be secretive about it by visiting your blog to find out about you but not leaving any comments. So I guess I didn't need to be, duh.
    I hope I'm not the only one who didn't know that Kathleen was doing it that way.

    That being said, thank you so much for the ornament and kitchen towel. You are so prompt. I displayed a picture of it on my blog. I still hope to get yours mailed out to you by the deadline on the 7th, but you never know about snail mail.
