This gnomeling was made at the end of a very long day.
In fact, this sweet baby boy almost didn't get made at all.
I spent 10 hours straight in the barn and barnyard working with my children and husband to create a new area for our ducks and chickens and guinea fowl. We emptied the barn that we love but didn't have time to finish completely when we first built it (the inside walls, that is). We finally added in those pieces that it lacked and re-organize the living spaces to make more room. There was so much work that my arms and back and head and soul were beyond weary when we finally came in to have dinner and go to bed.
So this little gnomeling almost didn't come to fruition. But I looked at my kit and thought, "No, you really need to make a gnome today- especially after all that hard work! Do a gnomeling- something gentle and tiny to remind you to care for yourself and be gentle with your spirit."
So I did.
This is one gentle soul. He is soft and kind hearted and will be a quiet but strong soul that puts to rest the minds around him and brings peace into the atmosphere which each breath he takes....
