The Sale Continues...


I am having a sale at both of my Etsy shops! Starting Thursday and running thru Monday everything is 15% off the marked prices in the shop. Also, with any order over 20.00 you will receive a glass bead assortment as a gift. I am filling the Jangles Etsy shop up with loads of new beads and bead sets for holiday gift making. Stop by and see what's new.



The Jangles Emporium is stocked with great finished jewelry, ceramic gift items, handpainted supply bags, wall hangings, and more!


All orders will be shipped on Tuesday after the sale. This way if you would like to shop all weekend I can combine shipments. As always, I will refund whatever shipping costs I can when combining orders. The 15% off sale price will be adjusted then too.

Here's a picture of the glass bead mix you'll receive if your order is over 20.00. (mixes will vary) This will help complete all those holiday projects.

Check out the Art Bead Scene, all of the editors are having Cyber sales this weekend.

Bookmarks

Hope everyone is doing well out in Cyber land. I am as busy as one of Santa's elves in the Jangles studio. Filling orders, making projects, and even starting to think about making gifts for my friends and family. I know...I haven't bought or made one gift. That will start as soon as Thanksgiving is over.

I just made this fancy dancy bookmark. I love making these for gifts and plan to do some more for gifts this year. I just use a head pin to string the beads up and attach it to the link with a wire loop. The bookmark comes with a jump ring so you open it up and slide it on. They look really snazzy and they don't cost very much to make.

To make it even easier on you, I have added some bookmark sets to the Jangles Etsy shop. I also have the bookmarks individually at the Jangles website.

Have a great day,

Update

Good Morning!
I just wanted to pop in real quick and say I am still out there. I have a sick kid...Day three of being home from school. It's nothing serious and we've been to the doctor for medicine so that part is good. Nik and I are splitting the work days in half. Orders come before blogging so that means I have to turn the computer off and get out to the studio making and glazing beads.
Have a good day ...

Ornament Extravanganza

Hi there, welcome to day two of my Ornament Extravaganza. Today's ornaments is a bit of a sewing project. I promise it was super easy, so even if you don't sew, you could handle this one. I began by taking two triangles of green felt and sewing them together with a bit of stuffing, a felt trunk, and ribbon. I threaded on a star bead and sewed on strands of size 6 seed beads for garland.

I will be giving away one of my tree ornaments this week, leave a comment here in the post sometime before the end of Saturday the 14th and you could win.

Ornament Extravanganza

Welcome to day one of my Ornament Extravaganza! Today, I decided to go with a simple ornament. These are my new Holiday Pendants, they make a great ornaments as well as a great pendant. I used a silver craft wire to make a "swirly thing" at one end. I threaded this through the pendant and bent the wire so it was standing straight up. I added a few beads and made another loose swirl at the top and voila, the ornament was finished.

Cleaning


Morning...

I didn't blog yesterday because I was cleaning. Over the past month my studio has become a bit of a disaster. I was having to step over things to get around. I couldn't take it any more. This clean spurt I am going through also coincides with Halloween being over. I am not a huge fan of the holiday, if I had my way we would skip right over it and move to Christmas, but I realize I have to deal with it. I think yesterday was kind of the kick off to the holidays. Can't really say it was a kick off, it was more of a oh @%* in four weeks my tree will be up and I should be shopping, and making, and planning. With any of those moments, I usually have to have a good cleaning and list making session to prevent me from going crazy. That's what I did yesterday and will most likely be doing today, and maybe even tomorrow.

Anybody else out there coming to the realization that the holidays are coming?

Have a good day,
