Custom Requests

As the saying goes “It’s the thought that counts”, and nothing brings this saying to life more than giving a truly unique custom gift.  

I am now offering a ‘Custom Gnome’ service – designing and creating hand-made gnomes unique and tailored to customer’s requirements.

I have completed several custom requests so far.  In the process I have witnessed the excitement of customers as they shared their idea with me, their delight when seeing the finished gnomes, and received photos of happy smiling faces of those who received them as gifts.  Seeing all this joy play out has given me so much pleasure too….and is why I would love to do more.

Below is a showcase gallery of some of the custom gnomes I have created.

“I purchased 6 of the most incredible custom-made gnomes for family and friends. They were incredible!!!

I could not have been more thrilled with them and how they turned out!! It was such an easy process, I gave Vicki simple fun facts about each person and let her creative ideas take over and have fun with it.

I highly recommend these for anyone! The time and thought process that was put into each one was better than imagined.

It was the perfect thoughtful present, as well as doing my bit towards helping small businesses. I will definitely be purchasing more in the future! “
