huuuuuuuuuuuge thank you

thank you really seems to not be enough...but i am so overwhelmed by all your wonderful support that it's all i can say! thank you SO much!!! thank you for stopping by the shop last night. thank you for being beyond patient with the SLOW etsy listings (it took me 70 minutes to list everything...that's just nuts!!) thank you for scooping up so many of my new things. thank you for helping me to live my dream and be a full time mom/artiste:):):):) that was my most successful shop update ever and i am just so stinkin' excited!! mainly because i have been REALLY enjoying working with clay lately and the fact that i am having such a great response to my lulettes is beyond thrilling!! i've been packing up lots o' stuff today and everything will be headed to their new homes tomorrow morning. sometimes it's hard to say goodbye, but when i think of the happy homes they are headed to...i know it's where they belong:) SO...my desk is a HUGE pig sty...




looks like an I Spy picture...right!? it's all the things i need for packing day...boxes, shred, scissors, labels, hole punches, coffee. what you are missing seeing, in a little wider shot, is Spider Man Monster Trucks, Hotwheels, a fake piece of toast, Darth Vader's helmet...etc. i have a photo of my Frida wall sculpture for you too:) She was a reserved listing and is headed off to her new home!!



WAY excited about some new designs I'm working on for Spoonflower too!!! yippppppeeeeee!!!


Onto other things:) my blog music is coming on automatically now and i'm not sure if i like it...what do you think? hmmmmmm. i've been working so late every night this past week...so I did a little relaxing today and caught up on some reading



so excited to see the amazingly talented Elsita in this issue!! I really don't think there is anything she can't do...she is fab-u-lous. Also just started Water For Elephants...love it so far! i'm a little all over the place tonight, huh!? Gotta get back to packaging...but i have 2 special things that i've been meaning to share with you forever. i bought this precious and perfectly funky little lavender pillow from the bumblebird etsy shop !



Look at the adorable print of Pepper on it:):) Thank you for your sweet art Heather:) i LOVE it:)


And...i don't think i ever shared my purchase from mystele at little glimpses. that link is to her etsy shop where she has some other wonderful pieces of folk art up for sale. look how sweet this angel is...



such a treasure:) love all the yummy texture and wax!! isn't it wonderful!!?

Happy weekend to you ALL!! xoxoxo...jenn

Hi Jen,

Congratulations on your etsy successes!! That's wonderful! Your pieces are so charming. It's no surprise that they are flying right out the door!

I hope your new home search is going well! I'm keeping my eyes wide open for a cute little home to recommend to you! The neighborhood that the shop is in is so very charming. How nice would it be if you lived close by? Well, August will be here in no time and I'm looking forward to meeting you in person.

In the mean time, I'll see you at the Mad Tea Party. Hope your party preparations are going well. I'm having a blast with mine. see ya, Deb

Congratulations on your etsy sales! You deserve it! I laughed when i read about your packing day equipment, it sounds so charming when someone else describes how it is to be a crafting mum, I usually just wish I had a button to push to get rid of all those toys! Your Frida is great!

Have a wonderful weekend!
