 Hey Fellow DIY'er!!

I'm so glad to have met you!
As promised here is the link and info for the second Crafty Palooza, on Saturday Aug. 5, 2023. at the Sidney Ne Lodgepole Valley Youth Camp.

Take time out of your busy life and be a little crafty. It doesn’t matter is you a beginner, moderately crafty or seasoned crafter, we all can benefit from a creative break to gather and craft. Sharing a common bond of creativity and inspiring each other, is good for us all.

You can Paint with Lou Ann or Make a wreath with Marguerite!

My paint/chalk workshop registration is at:
Marguerites' wreath workshop info is at

Gnomes: choice of 8” self standing gnome or interchangeable boy or girl gnome.  Select one to do in the workshop. These are several options to choose from.

Pickup truck 10 w x 12 h with you choice of 1 three piece add-on.
The add-on is changeable for seasons, holidays, etc.

Chalk Couture workshop, I like to use chalk designs and paste on most things I create, for gnomes and pickups there are patterns you can use also. But for the chalk couture workshop please pick a surface from my on-hand selection, or order one of the new surfaces from my online chalk site at

Want to do one of the above, from 6-9 instead, sign up for Night Owls.

Crafty Palooza Gnomes

 I have had fun cutting and painting these interchangeable Gnomes.

If you know me, you know I like d├ęcor that is versatile and changes with the seasons and is less to store. This couple is approx. 8 1/2" tall, with several layers. 

I cut on my diode laser in Grandma's Crafty Shed, painted and glued together.  The laser is so much easier, especially for intricate cuts, than in the 90's when I cut things like this with the scroll saw (which is still in my shed and I still use sometimes). Tools have come a long way, and I am a tool and gadget gal.

I will have 6 sets cut out for March 11th, 2023 at the Lodgepole Valley Youth Center at the Spring Crafty Palooza. You do need to register and pay to save your spot. All supplies provided. 

Can't make it to the Crafty Palooza, but want the blanks to paint no problem ask me about a workshop kit to take home.
