Move Over Cupid!

Everygnome knows about Cupid, as I'm sure you do too. The adorable baby angel has been shooting his arrows making fools fall in love for many seasons gnow, but with mixed results. You've heard the statistics - it seems as though for many souls the effects of Cupid's arrows wear off after only a short time. I guess it's time to bring in the professionals! Gnomes have always been experts in the area of love. Love comes so gnaturally to their lives that it makes perfect sense to transfer this responsibility to somegnome who knows how it really works! Move over, Cupid! It's time to let the big boys play.

All the Small Things

If there is one thing everygnome understands, it's that the physics of karma work like this: small acts of kindness lead to great rewards. Don't ask me to explain how, but if you just take a moment to watch this little lady, it won't be long before it all makes sense. It seems that everywhere she turns, she is coming up with new ways to bring a smile to somegnome's face. And by the way she helps those who are less fortunate, it's obvious that this little gnomette is rich on life. She just radiates happiness and I can't help but believe that it must be contagious. Those whose lives she has touched know that they were blessed by her kindness. As for me, I know she makes the garden all the more vibrant. Thank you, little lady. Thank you for all the small things you do.

Tiny Whispers

Some may say this tiny soul got his wings much too soon but that hasn't stopped him from being as helpful as he possibly can. His loved ones remember how his eyes twinkled as he always kept them laughing. Now he twinkles in the night sky, just as bright as before. When he used to help others see the garden around them better, he now serves as a clear reminder to focus on how precious and beautiful life is. He has always been there for his loved ones, helping out in any way that he could. Now all they have to do is call, and he flutters over their shoulders, whispering words of encouragement in their ears. At first, it may seem that his whispers are too light to be heard, but he knows that's all it takes. He knows the heart can hear. Be still, my loved one, and listen to me. Life is good. Life is beautiful. You are strong. You are loved.

Rainbow Painter

Once upon a garden there lived a wee soul who believed with every ounce of her tiny body that the garden around her gneeded more color. In fact, she doubted very much that the garden could ever have too much of it, so she decided to help the Gnomish community create different hues and tones in the garden around her. It sounds like quite a big task for somegnome so small, but she had a plan. First, she would come up with a gnew color, then she would determine where in the garden would this gnew color make the biggest impact. Maybe it would belong in a sunset? Those are always fun to paint. Or maybe it would make a flower bed pop! With each gnew hue, she gets even more fluttery with excitement! It was so much fun for her to splat colors here! Every gnow and then she would find herself especially motivated and would use all her coloring expertise to paint a gorgeous rainbow in the sky. Just imagine how dull the garden would be without her. No thanks. I much prefer the colors that melt your heart, brighten your smile and make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Keeper of the Garden

This little lady is so giddy with excitement that she is having a hard time keeping herself grounded. Ever since she was a wee gnomeling she has loved gardens, especially those filled with lots of pretty flowers! There is gno more peaceful place than a perfect little corner in a perfect little garden filled with perfect little flowers and perfect fluttery butterflies. She has always dreamed of finding a perfect little garden to call her own, one that is in gneed of a little guardian like herself to watch over it. At last, she has found it! She flutters every which direction, making sure every daffodil is in its proper spot. She flies over this way to check on the snowdrops peeking out of the winter's snow. Then she zips over that way to prepare the garden for the arrival of the bluebells. There's so much to be done, but at last she glides down to the window sill and watches over her pretty garden, admiring all of her hard work. Gno doubt, with this lady watching over it, this little garden will be kept safe for seasons to come.

Bippidy Boppity Boo

"Salagadoola mechicka boola..." What was that? Shhh... Listen! "... bibbidi-bobbidi-boo!" Did you here that? There it goes again! "... Put 'em together and what have you got? Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo!" Wow. It sounds like this little lady is having a lot of fun. She's skipping and singing around the garden, apparently doing a little happy dance along the way. There is something magical about watching a soul enjoy their role in the garden around them, and gno doubt this lady is making the most of her responsibilities! Believe it or not, she'll make the magic happen. She puts all the necessary things together, and then adds just enough of the thingmabob to do the job! And poof! You've got magic. Some say the magic comes from her wand, but I think it comes from her happy dance. Either way, spend even a moment with her and you'll see that gnothing is impossible.

Dragon Soul

If you're like most, you probably think of dragons as being vicious creatures who may deserve to be respected but don't likely make for good snuggle companions. After all, it's hard to imagine wanting to hug a creature that could easily burn you to a crisp. Forget all the scary things you think you know about these majestic creatures, because this fuzzy soul has just proved them all wrong. Gno doubt this little lady has a great big soul, worthy of a dragon's respect. Few others in the garden understand the creatures quite like she. From the very beginning, she has always known that dragons, too, love a good snuggle. They may have the reputation of being vicious creatures, but deep down they're nothing but warm hearted souls who are completely dedicated to their loved ones. It takes a special soul to look past all she has heard through the bad press that these majestic creatures get in traditional fairytales, and see them for what they really are. Like the dragon, she is strong. She is wise. She has a big heart. She commands respect (and snuggles).

Mr. Sandgnome

I'm sure you've found yourself wondering where dreams come from, but wonder gno more. This fuzzy soul has it covered. Dreams can be tricky critters, but Mr. Sandgnome knows has a special talent to track down and collect them. He knows all the spots in which the very best dreams hide. Take a look at the ones he has in his bottle gnow. It's the cutest dream that I've ever seen. I think my lonesome gnights are over! Mr. Sandman has definitely turned on his magic beam this time! I think I see a hint of adventure, a pinch of love and perhaps even an ounce of laughter stored in his little jar of dreams. In face, it might be wise for me to close my eyes gnow in hopes that little Mr. Sandgnome is on his way to my place as we speak!

This little fella was inspired by the song "Mr. Sandman" by The Chordettes

Wee Daisy

Yay! I'm so excited! Look who has come out for spring! This little lady loves daisies because they remind her of spring time and the awakenings that the garden goes through after the winter season, so it makes sense that she has decided to wake from her winter gnap right gnow. As she stretches out her wings, she can't help but be feel every ounce of her little body coming to life, but there is gno time to waste! This wee daisy has a big job to do. It's her job to tend to the daisy seeds to ensure that they're filled with just the right amount of magic and love so that when they blossom, they're able to do what daisies do best - put smiles on people's faces. I've always thought that daisies had a cheerfulness to them, haven't you? You just can't help but feel happy when you're looking at them and gnow we know why. Gno doubt, that with this wee daisy's special touch, there is far more cheer in the garden around us.

Guardian Angel

I’m sure there have been moments in your life where you have felt challenged beyond your control. Sometimes it may seem that your little body is not strong enough to handle the tough tasks it has been given. That’s where this little gnomette comes in. This tiny little guardian has a very big job! And she loves every moment of it! She flutters around looking for just the right person to help, somegnome who needs a word or two of encouragement. The gnomette has now found a beautiful soul in need of her tiny positive thoughts and she doesn’t hesitate to get to work quickly. She whispers so lightly in her new friend’s ear that she is barely audible, but she knows that’s all it takes for a reminder of the spark for life that still grows strong inside. With these tiny little whisperings of love and hope we are reminded that we are stronger than our bodies may seem. Life is good. Life is beautiful, and with this little lady by your side, that’s an easy thing to remember.

Friendly Sprite

If there ever was a caring soul, it's this friendly little sprite. Spend a ver moments with her and you'll realize that she's a caring kind of gnome and is always helping others. She gnever hesitates to go out of her way for a good deed. Helping another soul makes her heart smile and she can't help but do a happy dance when she receives a bit of appreciation. With being so busy looking for ways to bring a smile to a loved one's face, there is very little time for herself. But you know what? Sometimes even the most generous soul gneeds to do something for themselves every gnow and then. And this fuzzy little soul is going to do just that! With all the options for sharing moments with others, she's kind of thinking of keeping one for herself. If you ask me, I'd say that with all the joy she brings into the garden around her, she deserves to call this moment her very own.

Keeper of the Robin's Eggs

I know a fuzzy gnome whose soul is bigger than big. She happens to take the Golden Rule to heart more than anygnome else I know. Perhaps you've heard of it? Do unto others as you'd have done unto yourself. This Golden Rule can be traced back to ancient Gnomish times, and it remains just as important today as it did oh so many seasons ago. Everygnome in the community prides themselves in living their lives according to this rule, but this little lady takes it a step further. She has decided to use her kindness to look after those even smaller than herself. It can be quite a challenge for somegnome so small to find a soul even smaller, but she has her heart set on the robins. Or perhaps I should say, the robin's eggs. With every ounce in her tiny body, she musters up the courage to protect the defenseless eggs as they sleep peacefully in their gnest. She assures that they feel as warm as can be, without a care or worry. Such a cute little thing, I'd say she has shown the garden around her that even the smallest of souls can make the biggest difference.

Close to Me

A quick glance is all a gnome gneeds to see the potential that your tiny soul has in store. Oh my gnomes are you tiny, but already I can see you have a big soul. I am certain that you will be so big in a garden that expects you to be so small, and I am so blessed to be the one who gets to show you the wonders of the garden around you. Oh how I have so many things to show you like the dew drops on the spider webs and how they glisten like diamonds? Or the music that the leaves make as they jingle in the breeze? We're going to climb to the top of mountains so that you can see the entire garden stretch below us. There are a lot of adventures to be had! I want to show you our garden as I see it so that you may know in your heart the things that gneed to be done to make it even more magical than it already is. Where should we go today? What treasures will we find? Snuggle close to me, my love, and we're sure to find something grand!
