Gnomes at Home

As I was getting some gnomes ready to ship out the other day, my oldest son saw my blog address on the packaging and said, “You have a blog?” I was not offended that he didn’t seem to know that already but was glad that he reminded me. Yes, I do have a blog. Since all this Covid-19 stuff took over our lives, my blog has just been one of many things that have been neglected by me. What areas of your life have suffered since all this craziness started? Let me know how you’re doing in the comments.

While gnome sales did slow down a little bit at first for me, they’ve actually gotten pretty much back to normal. While many people are out of work or have reduced hours, I really can’t complain. The biggest struggle is just how to juggle the Etsy shop while the kids are home. Over the summer was rough, too, but at least then I wasn’t so worried about them getting schoolwork done. While, I am so thankful for the teachers finding a way to provide educational opportunities for their students virtually, making sure my boys stick with it is a new challenge for me. I just have to keep reminding myself that we’re all in this same crazy boat together, and the most important thing is to just stay calm. 🙂

How about a few new gnomes to put some smiles on our faces?

Only the watermelon gnomes are completely new designs. The others are just tweeks of past gnomes. I think they put me in a warm weather kind of mood. How about you? Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

These gnomes are available at my Etsy shop:
