Studio Shots

Hey, Hey,

It's been a whiles since I gave you a peek into the Jennifer Jangles Studio. Things are busy as usual around here. I have two humongous shows coming. They are still a few months off but I have to start planning now to make sure that everything gets finished. So I feel like this is the week of decisions. I am deciding what both of my booths will look like, what I will sell in my booths, etc.

So here is a look at most of the studio, glazing area in the front of the photo and store in the back. I usually take picture from the front of the space so I might be throwing a few of you off here.

Oh my slabroller, what would I do if I didn't have you?

Buttons, Buttons, Buttons, they will be shipping soon with the new fabric! EEEK!

There it is, my Quilt Market Booth. Lovely eh? I have been sketching and planning but until I can walk around in my ten by ten corner, I can't make a decision. I am such a visual person. The good news is once I set it up, I came up with a plan. I think it will be a good one. There is a ton of sewing to be done and I might have to ask for some help to get it all done. Plus, I will be the first to admit, I don't sew in straight lines. It's my style and it doesn't bother me a bit, but when you go to market and see all these other quilts and items sewn so perfectly...I get embarrassed. I am working on embracing my look and not worrying about the other fantastic sewers out there. Okay got a little off track there...

So there's the studio...what going on in your world? Got any good projects that you're working on? I would love to hear about them in the comments.

Have a great day!

  1. The one thing I learned by doing the bead soup blog party is that you need to ebrace what you are good at and don't worry about what other people are doing- because NO ONE can do exactly what you can- That is what makes each of us who we are. My gift is not your gift and your gift is not your gift. I am working on a free-form vertical netting necklace in know out colors.Alice's Beads and Baubles

  3. I am working on hosting my first home showing of my jewelry. I have a full-time "day job" and am a mother to two small children so building my business is slow going. I hope to do some craft shows this summer also. I love to see what you are doing on your blog, it's so inspiring! Thanks for sharing your behind the scenes shots!

    That is so true. It's real easy to get caught up in what other people are doing.
