I regret to announce that my shop will be closing at the end of October. I've had a great time as a seller on Etsy and I will still be around as I do not intend to stop shopping there.

If you've been waiting, now is the time! Want a custom Gnome? I can still do it!

As always, if you want to chat, you can send me a convo on Etsy, find me in the Etsy forums, keep up with me here on my blog, or reach me on Twitter.

Thanks everyone for your support!

I'm sorry to hear it! I put in a last-minute order as a Halloween treat for myself. So sorry we never got to see the Salamanders and Undines to complete my Element collection! Hunter gnome and Sylvia sylph will be disappointed! Laurel

Laurel, thank you. You've really been my biggest supporter.

I'm glad I tried and that my Gnomes did bring smiles to a handful of people in the world. That was their purpose anyway. Now with my mortgage, I just don't have the capital to run something that's not supporting itself. But, who knows? Maybe the economy will improve and people will start buying things that aren't necessities again, and the Gnomes and I can give it another go.

I love my guys, so maybe all I really need is a break and to save a little so I can afford to open the shop again. I never even got to the new Halloween Gnomes this year. I still will photograph them. They deserve to be seen.

Thank you. You're a wonderful person and friend.
