Happy 13th Birthday Jensen Noel!
This ornament is from high school days as well. It's a little gnome in a nut. In high school I was actively involved in an organization called Campus Life. The leader/director of the group had a crafty wife who made all kinds of neat things. One of the things she made was the gnome in the nut. She sold these things at craft shows so she made lots and lots. One year she needed help so she paid me to help her make these. She had all the pieces and parts laid out like an assembly line and we worked on assembling the little gnomes. This gnome was my favorite so she let me keep him.
