Painting

Hey there! I told you Friday I was painting...and here's the proof. Whew! It was a long day but I got lots finished. Above are my wood plaques for my wall hangings. Below is the fabric I painted for more bags. I love painting with paint, it's instant gratification. I don't have to wait on the kiln to fire.
While I have been working I have been thinking about my display. I will write more on that later but IO decided to paint some signs and pieces to bring the jewelry, bags, and wall hangings together. I found a cool Christmas tree for my ornaments at Hobby Lobby but I had to add some dots to it to make it Jangle-ly.
We had these doors from another project set aside in the garage so I painted them black and I plan to hang hooks on it to display my wall hangings.I still might paint a little sign on it too, but I couldn't decide at the time.
Here are my signs I painted, yes they are painted on a pizza box. I will trim them up later.



Today, I am going to be making beads. I still need to make quite a few for the show. But first, it's Monday so I think I am going to call a Jangles board meeting to get a big fat to-do list compiled for the week. Otis, (my dog), really hates to sit through these meetings, but he's my only employee. :)

Have a good day,






Come see me at the Norcross Art Fair, this weekend....

  1. You've been busy! I like the idea of hanging your items on the doors, but how do you keep it standing up? Do you have help lugging stuff for the show? I just completed a two-day show and would never have been able to carry the heavy stuff by myself. Such a frustration to me having to rely on someone else to help--but I just don't have the muscles...

    As far as Otis, maybe he needs an incentive to attend those board meetings.

  2. Tell Otis that he better start a-waggin' and get his tail in gear to help with the prep work! You rock! Can't believe how very productive you are...no, wait a minute...strike that...I can't believe that you don't take a break! Your booth will be a stunner. Can't wait to see your display ideas...my own need some shakin' up but I don't have enough hours in the day. And that tree? Soooo Jangle-y now!
    Enjoy the day!

  3. love what you have done so far, it is really fun! The door is a great idea!! I may have to "borrow" that one. I have been trying to find a better way to display my necklaces, that just might be the way {or something like it}.

    I am planning out my spending for the next month and I may have to include a few of your jangles :)

    Thanks for the inspiration
