Kick Anxiety, Depression, Neurodiversion and just plain boredom with creativity and art!

As a mother of an anxious child, I know the inner struggle and the feeling of being a spicy disaster. I ask myself daily- how can I do better?

Here at Our Daily Gnome, we strive to help you and your child learn creative ways to control the GIANT MESSY feelings, instead of them controlling you. We understand the daily struggle as a child and a parent. We may not have all the answers- but who does?? If you know them send them our way. HAHA

Our Daily Gnome Creative Arts Center is a safe place we GNOME you will have fun. A place where being a mess doesn't matter!

Come get messy with us!

Join a club, class, special event, open craft hour or host a private party!

Let's Get Messy Together

    Kids Club

    Our Kids' Clubs provide the opportunity for children to explore messy feelings with messy art. We utilize the largest variety of art mediums available and the development of skills through repeating exercises. Each week kids will build skills through the exploration of new ideas. Each club is dedicated to a genre of art, whether it be creative arts, fiber arts, canvas art, mixed media, etc.

Our Story

We are a mother/daughter hand-made business that began as a way to help my daughter control her anxiety instead of her anxiety controlling her during the pandemic.

We realized during the isolation that she needed an outlet and a place to create. She needed people and social interaction. A place to unplug and connect.

As a mother, I felt alone and unsupported. I missed this section in prenatal training and nursing school. It is not a typical discussion at dinner parties, school functions or moms groups. What is a mother to do? How do I fix her? Can I fix her?

These BIG FEELINGS are MESSY and who better to help contain the MESS than others like us??

Thus, Our Daily Gnome was born.

Our Mission is to help others kick their anxiety, depression, neurodiversion and just plain boredom through creativity and art!

  • Kids' Clubs

    Kids' Clubs

    Art is therapeutic and serves as an avenue for children to explore in a safe space for trial and error with instant results, whether the results are satisfying or not, children who participate in art are constantly exposed to that learning curve that benefits the development of resilience, critical thinking, observation, problem-solving skills, appreciation, and self-expression.
