Welcome sign by glowing antique lantern


I love to get welcomed surprises in the mail — whether it’s my street mailbox or my e-mail inbox — especially if it’s from a friend. These kinds of correspondences put a smile on my face, warm my heart and encourage me through the week.  This is why I enjoy putting together The Laughing Cabin’s E-Newsletters. This is where I take the time to share my heart-to-heart thoughts and personal stories and let you know what new projects I’m working on out in the workshop. It’s a fun way to connect.

The Laughing Cabin’s E-Newsletters are published on the average of once every 7-10 days and are sent to your e-mail inbox. Here is a SAMPLE of a recent edition so that you can get an idea of what you will be receiving.

The e-newsletters are free, and you can unsubscribe at any time. I do not share or sell your information for any reason. Your privacy is important to me!

Speaking of which — here’s where you go to SUBSCRIBE or use the sign-up form located on the top right sidebar.

Readers of the blog have let me know, over the years, that their favorite posts are the ones that provide how-to information for making gourd sculptures. I have heard you and have created this FREE tutorial. It’s yours when you subscribe to The Laughing Cabin’s E-Newsletter.

Topics in the tutorial include: how to select a gourd; on-line sources for gourds, how to clean the outside and inside of a gourd; how to cut a hole in a gourd; painting instructions; materials list; and safety information.There are clickable links included that will allow you to locate resources and materials.

And if you prefer to purchase a ready-made gourd, you can find it in our SHOP under LAUGHING CABIN ORIGINALS.

Pssst….. I’ve also tucked a $10.00 Off coupon in your welcome e-newsletter that you can use toward a purchase of $50.00 or more at The Laughing Cabin’s on-line STORE. Be sure to look for it when your welcome e-newsletter arrives — usually within 24 hours after you subscribe.
