Will there be any 1/1s?

Well, it wouldn’t be much fun if there wasn’t. That’s why our collection will feature twelve of them! The Ogre 1/1 is shown above in the middle; the NFTs along side it aren’t 1/1s, they just feature some of the rarer traits in our collection that are too cool not to showcase.

The more you mint, the higher change you have of acquiring a Gnomie with an ultra rare trait or even a 1/1!

How many Lil Gnomies will be kept for marketing?

100. We want to make it clear to our holders that our team will be holding on to a small number of tokens for marketing purposes and personal use; no secrets here. They will be distributed between our founding members, devs, community managers and MODs. A majority of these Gnomies will be given back to our community over time through giveaways, as for the others… HODL!

Meet Our Team:

Bayley Bachiero — Founder and CEO of Carrot Cake Labs.

An entrepreneur at heart, Bayley always knew that he would work for himself one way or another. He enjoys working out, traveling and playing golf.

He has been a full-time Realtor specializing in Rancho Santa Fe, CA for the past year. He’s sold almost $10M in real estate just in the past 9 months. He’s built strong relationships with high-net-worth individuals and has learned a great deal about marketing and networking along the way.

Bayley first started investing and trading crypto with his long time friend and current business partner, Evan, back in 2017. NFTs were first brought to his attention in 2018 when he saw a YouTube video of Alex Becker talking about CryptoPunks. Alex said he believed that one day a single punk would be worth over a $100K. Bayley, however, decided not to take Alex’s advise. He wishes he would’ve.

Bayley watched the explosion of Yuga Labs and the BAYC from the sidelines in 2021. By the time he was ready to invest, an ape was out of his price range. He then came across alien frens in early January, 2022. He loved everything this project was doing and decided it was time to buy his first NFT, he bought three frens. Bayley then became inspired to start a project of his own and it’s been full steam ahead ever since. His main objective is to build Carrot Cake Labs into a Web3 powerhouse.

He recognizes that God is the greatest power and creative of all.

Barberhaus began his collaboration with Bayley and Carrot Cake Labs in early 2022 to help bring My Lil Gnomie to life. He saw it as an opportunity to learn more about the NFT industry and work alongside someone with a vision and a passion for the future of Web3.

The creative manifest of the project was to build a brand of characters and form a community of fantastical beings, each one being unique and independent, paralleling humankind. The narratives that can be carried through are endless.

Barberhaus strives to promote love, joy, peace and kindness. He hopes the Gnomies will be a reflection of that and will be carried on into the future to become a positive association in the Web3 world.

A word from our founder:

“I see a bright future ahead for My Lil Gnomie and Carrot Cake Labs, I truly believe these will become household names in Web3. I’d also like to give a big thank you and a warm welcome to everyone who decides to take part in this journey with us. My top priority is ensuring that our community feels recognized and rewarded. Without our community, we wouldn’t exist.

With the current state of the market seeming very oversaturated, it’s very difficult to distinguish your project from the others. It’s been said that all great investors invest in people, not ideas; and I think this is where we really stand out. We have such a strong and extremely motivated core team. Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion. I can say with full confidence that’s the person I am and whom I strive to be every day.”
