Wee Folk Art Holiday Gnome Contest Button

We have been working on something special to share with all of our readers for this holiday season. We have an adorable pair of Holiday Gnomes who will be celebrating the holidays with one of you. Enter to win Holly and Noel.

There are three ways to earn entries.

Option Two: Blog about the Wee Folk Art Holiday Gnome Giveaway on your blog with a link back to us. Make sure you tell us in your comment here if you will blogging about the contest (so I know to check for it). Also, be sure to include your blog link in your comment. Option Two will earn you 5 more chances at winning.

We do not email our registered user or share user information in anyway... this just helps us prevent spam. We are happy to ship these cute Gnomes anywhere... you do not need to be in the USA to play.


Getting Focused

Michelle and I are very lucky. Not only are we mother/daughter, but we’re also kindred spirits. We share a lot of very admirable qualities…but on the flip side…we also share several, hmmm, let’s just call them personality quirks. One of them is our tendency to fly off in several directions at once. So many things excite us, that it’s often hard to stay focused! This can be pesky for one person, but multiple it by two, and it can spell chaos! Take the blog. Originally, our plan was to share “Folk Art” projects. Wools and felting, “Wee Folk” and children’s toys. But, before we knew it, we’re off in all sorts of different directions, and feeling like we’re not doing any of them justice.

So, with the “new look” we talked about a couple of weeks ago, we are putting on blinders, and trying to get focused. We want to talk about and share “folksy” stuff. I love our Gnome Home and I’m constantly fussing with it. It’s a bit of a joke that sometimes my house can be in a total state of pandemonium, but my Gnome House is always company ready! We love working with wool and felting. We love simple, wooden toys, and getting the children involved in the creative process whenever possible. (Bug and I are presently in cahoots designing a huge undertaking!)  Anyway, we truly want to get back to our original vision. We are hopeful that over the next few weeks, our blog will reflect these changes, and create a welcoming environment that encourages visits and participation. Hope you enjoy!

In the midst of the updates...

In case you haven't noticed... we are in the middle of "trying on" some different themes for the blog. I hope to have the bulk of the changes done by the end of the weekend. Please be patient with us and yes the Pattern of the Month is still going if anyone would like to get their entry in.

Please Excuse the Mess

If you have been checking in over the last couple days then I'm sure you will have noticed some changes. Obviously the site is under construction. I am aware that some of the links are now broken and I am updating them as quickly as I can. And I do know that the header is not loading correctly in all browsers. It is also on my to do list. Since we don't actually want to take the site down while we sort all this out... please bear with us. Besides a little chaos can be fun.


No matter how you happened to stumble upon this blog you are most certainly welcome! This blog is written by a mother/daughter team. Although our personalities and personal style differ, we hold true to the same values. Family and home, crafting and creating, guide us through our days. The purpose of Wee Folk Art is twofold. First, we hope to share arts and crafts that enhance the lives of children and beautify the home. Second, we will share our family’s creative adventures and exploration of the natural world. We are ever conscious of the environment and how our actions impact it. We generally use all natural materials and believe, especially with children, homemade is best and less CAN be more. (Okay…this does not apply to the stashes in our craft rooms!) We hope you make a point of stopping by often, and not only do we welcome, but encourage your comments and feedback. The plan is to offer free monthly patterns and sell a limited number of kits and finished products, as time permits. A monthly give away will give you a chance to win our latest kits! So, once again, welcome. We are a work in progress. Be patient and vocal! Watch us evolve!
