The Angry Gnome Celebrates Oz

The Angry Gnome Welcomes One and ALL to Oma Linda’s Wizard of Oz party!!! In honor of this Special, Annual Event, the Angry Gnome and his friends decided to make an Ozzie Wand for a Give Away!!

They began with some Oz Scrapbook paper they’ve been hoarding for just this Occasion! They also had a glass bowl shape and a wood piece and a dowel.  Everything was at their disposal so they began their work!

The first thing done was the painting of the wood base:
Once this was painted, two more Gnomes drilled the hole for the Wand handle.  Hmmmmmm....there was a bit of a delay, due to a bottle of wine...but work was eventually resumed and the hole successfully drilled!

Some Extras were being chosen...Stars were very important!!!

  And the Angry Gnome, himself, worked on the famous OZ Symbol!!!! 
Next came the OZ figures on the green base and Glitter!!!  One of the Gnomes spilled quite a bit of glitter but managed to also get some around the Witch figure, where it was needed!

After working ALL DAY, the Angry Gnome and friends had created a wonderful, BIG, Magical Witch of the West OZ WAND!!!! And here it is!!!!

Now, would you like to know HOW this Oz Wand could be yours?????!!!  I’m not going to TELL!!! HAHHAHAHHA, JUST KIDDING!!! Had you going for a second!!! Okay..in order to win this Fabulous OZZIE WAND, sweated over by MANY hard-working Gnomes, you must successfully answer the following OZ questions:

I don't normally do awards but....Karen has won my heart

Not that the rest of you who have tried on my other blogs to bestow awards on me and I am always flattered beyond measure and have turned them down. But I do thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Karen of IrelandBrady along with Stacy of Magic Love Crow have been so generous and loving to our inside, outside, upside down darling Ry. So because of their amazing outpourings, I will with accept this Kreativ Blogger Award.

When you receive this honor, here are the rules or not depending on your mood or bent.
1.Post a link to the person who awarded you the award.
2. Share 7 well thought out random things about yourself
3. Bestow this award on 10 other deserving bloggers and then let them know.

1. I have never been scuba diving but I love the ocean

2. My favorite food is Thanksgiving dinner, turkey, dressing, the whole sheebang. And I saw yesterday on the Food Network a Thanksgiving Po' Boy that has it all and is now offically my new favorite sandwich.

3. I once went on a starvation diet while working at a bakery and passed out. When I awoke I had the tray of chocolate donuts I had been carrying all over me.

4. I just recently found out that I can do without things I thought I had to have in order to be me. Good stuff.

5. When I was a little girl, I met and had my pictures taken with Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, Rin Tin Tin, and Hopalong Cassidy. I also was on TV with Glen Campbell at K circle B in Albuquerque.
"Riding down the trail to Albuquerque, saddlebags all filled with beans and jerky, heading for K circle B, the TV ranch for you and me, K circle B in Albuquerque, yodel detay, yodel detay, yodel dee". And that's the real song.

6. In the past three years, I have learned more about life from my grands than the preceding decades. This blessing that I have had in my life has not gone unnoticed or unrecognized. My daughter and grands living with us has enriched all of our lives and we will forever be Casa de Cuckoos and proud of it.

7. I have begun to paint again after years away because of some wonderful friends who are so talented in so many different area and make me want to have the joy they have in what they do so well. Thanks my arting buddies.
