MEET THE GIRL BEHIND OH GNOME GIRL
OH HI THERE! I’m Jenny, the girl behind Oh Gnome Girl. If you’ve been following my journey over the years, you’ll know that I’m sporadic at best with sharing my happy creations. An explanation is long overdue for those of you who don’t know me personally. Let me shed a little sunshine on the matter…
My hobbies include sewing, painting, gardening, making music… but we’ll get back to that in a minute. Let’s talk about the wonderful things that distract me from my little maker kingdom; loud noises, airplanes and buses, and spotlights, video walls, and MUSIC! That’s the more interesting way of saying the very simple fact, I am a roadie. I work in production for a variety of incredibly talented musical groups and artists. I love my job. It’s difficult work, it’s time consuming, it keeps me away from home, and distracts me from healthy habits like rest and creativity.
For weeks, sometimes months at a time, I leave home and give all my energy into caring for my artists, but more specifically their crew. My whole heart and being goes into making their jobs and lives a little easier. When I do get time at home, I have found the fastest way to revive my energy and purpose is to shift my focus into creative projects. That is very much how Oh Gnome Girl came to be!
Oh Gnome Girl is my outlet! It’s the projects that bring me joy and fulfillment. I put them out into the world hoping they do the same for YOU!
As the world has been opening back up, it has allowed me to go back on the road for work again. I’ve been forced to reassess the best way to keep producing happiness for both myself and others. One of the reasons my Instagram posts are so sparse, and my shop is only open from time to time is because I’m just not home to ship the kits. BUT I think I’ve found a way to keep the happiness flowing!!!!
Kits will now ALWAYS be available for preorder. As soon as I'm home from the road I'll assemble kits and ship them out. Kits will still be made to order, as they always have been, handmade and packaged with love. Working with preorders will also help with chipping away at reducing Oh Gnome Girls carbon footprint, something I try very hard to stay conscious of.
I also am working on building up the arsenal of fun designs! I have set a personal goal of one new release per quarter! Perhaps as a collection or maybe single, very special designs. Added to the site is a page called WISHLIST so that you can tell me what you'd like to see in the shop.
Always feel free to reach out either on the site, email, or social media.
It would mean so much to me if you would follow along with my adventures.
