Give Away Friday

Hey! Hey! It's give away Friday again. I took a few weeks off. I can't say that was my plan I think those Fridays just sneaked up on me. Leave me a comment for this post and you will be entered to win a woodland snail bead. He is a one of a kind because he has a hole. My snails are usually charms. I think he's pretty darn cute and almost hate to part with him. I am sure he will scoot on to a good home. You can post a comment until Monday morning when I will pick a random winner. I can't give you an actual ending time but it will be once the boys are on the bus and I am sitting at my computer drinking my morning mocha. I am so official. :)

Let's see there are so many things going on in the Jangles studio right now, there is just a buzz about the place. It's so exciting that my fabric is available for order now. This also means that my buttons are being ordered by quilt shops too. I am in full speed production right now. I have a humongous kiln being loaded today with all sorts of stuff. I can't believe it but I think I will have almost everything in stock on my website after today. There are just a few items left to make. Wohoo! I didn't think that was really possible. I also have some new birdies in the kiln. All different colors, I can't wait to see them all together. One more thing and then I will stop....I also just placed an order for some new stamps. I am super excited to get them. I make my texture pendants with stamps that I hand draw. I drew out some new designs and am having them made as we speak. It will still be a few weeks before I can even start making things with them, but I am sure you will here about it when I do. The ideas are churning in my head. Whew! That was exhausting just telling you about it all.

Before I go and let you start leaving your comments, I thought I should mention again, my Bead and Button classes. I can't believe it's only six weeks away(or close to that). I am teaching a bunch of ceramic bead making classes and a jewelry making class. It's always a good time. So if you were thinking about signing up now is the time. I really hope to see you there. I love when I get to spend the day with someone that I have talked to online, it's fun!

Alrighty, get to commenting, and I will be back here on Monday, mocha in hand, to let you know who the winner is.

Have a great weekend,

  2. Oh yeah. That little snail buddy is too darn cute.
    I am going to pass along your information on the fabric to my artist friend Jeanne Weymouth who makes the most incredibly whimsical dolls. I feel lucky to have one. She is a colorista like you. You would love her!
    Enjoy your very full day!

  3. I love the snail and would be happy to give him a good home. Looking forward to seeing your new pieces...will have to get busy of the bag of your beads I ordered a few months ago - I am having trouble committing to a design since they are so nice just to look at.

  4. Hi Jennifer! I'm sooo excited for you about your fabrics! I'm not a sewing queen (more of a bead stitching godess--LOL) but the fabrics are really fun! Mr. Snail is very cute, too!
    Look forward to seeing you at the Show!
    Bead Happy!

  5. I sent my friend Jeanne your information. She was very excited and found out that your fabric is sold at our local store, Herrschners (which is a large catalog retailer located down the street from me!). I am going to have to stop over there this weekend and fondle the fabric. I think I will buy some and see what I can do with it! Oh, and if you want to see more of Jeanne's work, she goes by Whimsy J (http://www.jeanneweymouth.com/Art_Dolls_and_then_some_.html)
    Enjoy the day, Jenn!

  11. ABS Question: yes, I sew...and I bead...and wire wrap...and make polyclay beads...well, and try everything a little of everything else. I just finished square stitching 2700 delicas into a cuff and really think it is time to bead stitch on some fabric cuffs. This snail bead would make a fantastic closure.

    Your new fabrics are so fun!
