Day 64 - You've Been Gnomed!

Day 64 - You've Been Gnomed!

Day 64 - Hi Ya! It's Friday. TGIF. Let's usher in the weekend today with a good old fashioned funny little prank.

Let's talk gnomes. Who has every heard of a garden gnome? We have all seen the ceramic figurines playing peek-a-boo in a garden, right? Personally, gnomes rank right up there with plastic pink flamingos. Kinda funny. Kinda tacky.

Passing by a gnome the other day, I wondered what inspired these tiny stone creatures. I Googled "Garden Gnome" and consulted with www.justsaygnome.net. (Yes. The site exists.) The site describes the meaning of gnomes "to have magical powers to protect or punish people - or to reward them with happiness."

Alrighty, let's get down to today's project. Let's create and reward some poor unsuspecting soul with a gnome. Pick someone with a good sense of humor. Then go out to your local store or order a gnome online. Here is a suggested adorable gnome on Amazon: Zen Garden Gnome Statue. {affiliate link} I purchased the green gnome in these photos in the dollar bin at Target for $3. Oh man, that dollar bin at Target! 

Once you have the gnome, sneak the little ceramic monster into someone's yard, cubical or front door. Include the card "You've Been Gnomed! You can print it here: You've Been Gnomed! Free Printable. Maybe add few flowers around the gnome to soften the gnome's powers?

Let me know how it goes. Happy gnoming!
