LouAnn is a wonderful lady to buy from who goes beyond anyone else I have ever brought from. Truly a lady who sincerely loves for you to be happy with her items, let me know where my package was all the way from the States to Australia. Her items are gorgeous and extremely well made, both items I have purchased from LouAnn the receivers loved them as they were so different. I have ordered 5 more for Christmas presents and one for myself, I love a challenge plus it takes me back to when I was a child when you didn't need all they whiz bang toy's of today to have fun. Buy one you will love them. Thank You LouAnn, AAAAA

Blessed with a Gift
I have always love to find out how things worked, when my children were little I was the one to sit down and put things together. I loved the challenge of finding out if it was going to work and work right. That was the beginning for me using my hands
I Love God my husband, my children, my family and my friends and all of Gods children. The love of creating beautiful one-of-a-kind Gourd creations, is the gift that God has given me. No I do not grow them, I am always asked this question. The story behind that, is very simple. I am from New York and now live in North Carolina where there are lots of snakes and I am afraid of them. In growing Gourds they have lots of leaves and vines which grow very tall and bushy, you have to walk through that mess to pick them (smile) I cannot do that. My Gourds come from Welburn Gourd Farm in California where they grow nice and thick great for carving.
When I take a Gourd in my hand and hold it and feel it, it takes awhile for me to decide what it will be. It could be a basket, bowl, sculpture, teapot, toy, paperweight, a piece of beautiful jewelry and many more great creations. I just Love to be unique, different from everyone else that is God saying try this and that, and I just obey and there comes my beautiful piece that God has given me to give to you.
There are so many different shapes, sizes and styles of Gourds so your imagination with Gods help will give you a master piece. I would love for the world to see the work that I do and appreciate it as I do, so I am asking you to take a look at everything and help me and God to spread the word of Designs by LouAnn.
Thank you, now take a good look and spread the word.
