I was asked recently to create something to hold receipts from a local grocery store in town.  The receipts are collected and tallied and the parent store donate money to the school.  So creating something catch that people look at or remember is helpful to get them to bring in more receipts.  So, this year I decided to create a Grocery Gnome or GG for short.

While he is used to hold paper receipts he can also hold candy to pass out, small toys, tickets, names for a drawing o even used as a wicked cool trash can by your desk.
