It all started with Cecilia and Deana, partners in Gnome-ness. We founded Tidy Gnomes in 2012 in order to create support and community for people who could use a few magical helpers. We believe that with love and kindness, for others and for ourselves, each of us can make a positive impact in our community and in our own lives. We were defending our happiness by creating Tidy Gnomes and hopefully in turn it will help you to defend yours. Our family of Gnomes is ready to support you in all the home-making arts, especially the one most often forgotten in our world of consumerism:
It all started when she was a little girl spending time with her
grandmother. She would ask her if she had her working shoes on and
they would venture together into the mighty task of rearranging drawers and organizing closets. Deana has continued her love of being in supportive roles with cleaning and organizing with the gnomes, setting up/cleaning up weddings and also coaching.
grew up in Ecuador with a big family and a big community. She believes that we can all accomplish more if we help each other out. There is no way to do everything alone. Cecilia likes to make movies and mentors youth to be empowered through filmmaking. She likes farming, traveling back to South America and to remind herself to be brave and grateful.

is a 23 year old Libra that has been part of the gnome family for many moons now. She is kind and shares her upbeat energy with ease. She also likes to go on scenic walks with her pup. She loves making beds and spreading love around people’s homes. Furry friends are her weakness and she WILL pet them if you got them.
likes to swim in rivers and traveling around the world. She is in Portland studying herbalism and spends a lot her time making healing potions, reading and cooking the most delicious food . You will often find her humming a sweet song while she is giving love to your space.
has been supporting homes for over 10 years. She loves animals, so if you have any, they better be prepared for lots of pets and belly rubs! In her spare time, she collages and reads anything she can get her hands on. Her dream is to one day publish her own book and become an official author.
loves helping other people and always seems to have a new hobby she's working on. Right now she is learning to bake, teaching herself to crochet, and working on her pool and darts game. She can usually be found listening to a history podcast while cleaning your home.
