A Life of Whimsy

Living in a rural area in Salt Lake City as a child, we had to create our own fun which usually meant being outside for much of the day. The backyard was my place and I became a maker of jeweled mud pies adorned with rocks, berries, and anything that caught my eye.

Along with my mud pie obsession, I also spent hours at the kitchen table transforming coloring book pages into works of art. My color ran outside the lines, and multi-colored patterns filled my favorite animal and holiday-themed pages.

I’ve always been involved in some kind of art. Drawing, painting, printmaking, salvaged metal art, and the list goes on. I was fortunate to have a number of designs licensed for needlepoint, home products, wall art, and holiday greeting cards.

My mother taught me to sew, and I have fond memories of those times with her. She was always supportive of my art endeavors by providing pans and doodads for mud pies, lots of crayons and paper, and patience while I learned to sew ~ and making a mess everywhere!

Designing and sewing whimsical gnomes provides so much creative satisfaction and includes everything I love to do from doodling to sketching and beyond. And to think it all started with a handful of coloring books and a box of crayons ~ and hundreds of mud pies cooking in the sun all summer long

Thanks for visiting!
~ Sharon and all the little Gnomes

Frequently asked questions
Do you offer combined shipping?

Yes! Depending upon your location you may receive a refund on the shipping when you order multiple items. I will refund the difference when your order is shipped.

Do you offer gift wrapping?

All gnomes, pillows, etc., are packaged in a clear cellophane bag, tied with a brown string, with tag. Gnomes also have their personal story attached.

If your order is a gift and shipped to the recipient I'd be happy to attach your greeting and signature. Please add it to the comment section when you check out.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes! Just convo me with the number of gnomes you're interested in and where you live. I'll get back with you on the cost of shipping.

Can you make a LARGER GNOME than the one shown on the listing?

Yes! Go to the listing of the gnome you like and request a custom order. Let me know how large (tall) you would like the gnome and I'll get back with you on the details and price.

Care Instructions

Beards can be made from a number of materials. Please check the listing to ensure the type of beard the gnome and gnome toppers are made with.

FAUX FUR ~ comb the beard with a comb
WOOL YARN - do not comb, fluff with your fingers
DYED WOOL - do not comb, fluff with your fingers

Gnomes are for decoration and are not suitable for children under 3. Although they are extremely well made they need tender loving care to keep them nice year-after-year.

Holiday Shipping ~ October/November/December

During the holiday season between October-December, it may take a few more days to make your gnomes due to the increase in orders. Please allow a minimum of 5-7 before your order ships. You can always check your order for the date it is expected to ship. Thanks Sharon
