It's one Seriously Busy Week around here! Seriously.

So, here we are on Wednesday and WOW! All I can say is that I had a remarkably productive night last night and I still am not completely caught up with all that needs to be done project-wise, but I am okay with that because quite frankly, I love every last minute of it! YAY!!!!

If you haven't checked it out yet, don't forget to stop by Monday's post to enter to win (or just to check out) one of my Zombie Art Dolls!

Also, above this post  you will see a very important post go up here on my blog! It's time for Blogs for Boobies and I am participating in memory of my friend, Chris and in honor of my Aunt Judy and another crafty blog friend who was recently diagnosed. Please take a moment to read through that post today and check out the other participants, as this is so important and this is a really fun way to help out!


WOYWW 17Aug2011


This is my current workspace. Considering the flurry of creative activity that took place last night, quite frankly, I'm surprised it has this much space left! HA! Do you SEE those mustaches, though????? Seriously. The Hubbums and I were totally walking through Target and I rarely buy supplies there because, well, quite frankly, their selection generally sucks, but all the way from the main aisle these babies caught my eye! When I was magnetically pulled toward them, The Hubbums followed (You know how that goes, right? The magnetic draw toward something fabulous? K. Just check'n.), and even when he saw them he immediately said, "If you want those you can get them." SCORE!!!! They are wicked fun! We were laughing as I considered wearing one to work! HA!

You can also see the simple bracelet project I created there, as well! I almost feel guilty calling this a 'project' because it was SO simple, but sometimes I think that seeing the simplicity in things is an art form in and of itself, don't you?


Gothic Arch Bracelet


I created this using one of the gorgeous Gothic Arches from Retro Cafe Art Gallery. I dotted on a bit of Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue and added glass glitter to accent the arch after painting it with a copper paint pen. I heated the glitter to tarnish it a bit, but I think I would like to tarnish it a bit more, even. Then I added a Tim Holtz jump ring and strung it on a gorgeous piece of May Arts ribbon and I am in love! So simple, and yet so pretty!

  7. Ooooohhhhh! I am LOVING that bracelet! I have a 'normal sized' wrist, but a big hand, so I have trouble finding slip-on bracelets I like. What a WONDERFUL & SMART idea to use a ribbon that can be adjusted individually! And I HAVE some cool things that would work well! THANK YOU for the idea! Your crowded workspace speaks, lil' Jen. It says, "I am Jennifer, and I create marvelous things!" (And you definitely DO!)

  13. Yes that bracelet design is simply beautiful,
    when you run out of moustaches try using black electric tape to create a moustache - me & the kids do it before Niall gets home & then all pretend there is nothing on our faces... he finds it hilarious...
