    I bought the gourd necklace as a Christmas gift. The recipient loves it and was wearing it the day I heard from her. She found it unique (like all of LouAnn's creations!) and great to wear with more dressy clothing as well as jeans. A wonderful reminder of God's personal faithfulness, too. Arrived in plenty of time. Great dealing with this shop!!!

    I bought these earrings for a theatre major, and she just loves them. Beautiful design, truly unique; and she just loved the colors! Always excellent customer service from LouAnn--no matter the weather--as well as her special touches! Would definitely shop with her again.

    I bought this for a male family member, and he is looking forward to playing and teaching his little girl, too. Before we wrapped the gift, my husband couldn't resist taking up the challenge and started playing himself! Great family fun that doubles as unique home decor when resting on the shelf! LouAnn is a talented artist and offers superb customer service!

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.
