Attention Readers: The Jelly Bean Stash Has Been Replenished. Just say'n. {WOYWW}

*Whew!* I know some of you were worried about that, so I wanted to get that important news bulletin out right away. We simply MUST focus on the most important things sometimes, don't you think? K? K. Thanks. Moving on....

It's What's on Your Workspace Wednesday and I am quite pleased to report that I cleaned up my desk before diving into a couple of last minute Stamping Royalty submissions the other day. Then I messed it all up again. Then I picked it up again. Then I found out last night that I need to have two cards made, supplies listed, and the whole shebang in the mail very quickly, and took out a bunch of stuff again. The following photo is somewhere in the middle of all that. Just say'n.

WOYWW 3/21/2012


By 'in the middle' I really mean 'toward the end' of all that. I did actually START the card last night after taking this photo due to a sudden 30 minute (or so) opportunity to craft. Take 'em when you get 'em, right? Right. K. Thanks. Bye.

NOOOOO!!! Not bye, sillies! I have a project to share with you, too, of course!!! As I've mentioned, Retro Cafe Art is sponsoring Gingersnap Creations this month and this week's challenge is pretty fab! You can create ANYTHING inspired by the last century! I decided to go with LATE last century. As in the 1980's-ish. You know, back when TV's were small and consoles and, well, kind of cooler than they are now with their big fancy flatness and such.

TV


I KNOW, RIGHT???!!!! Yup. You can totally get that little tv shrine at Retro Cafe Art. I'll wait. Oh...before you go, you may need to stock up on Stickles, too, because I created the entire test pattern out of fabulous glitter glue. K. Now you can go check it all out. I'll wait. For reals, this time. Just say'n.

TV Test Screen


Oh! One more thing! Okay...well, two more, actually....you are also going to want the fabulous Tim Holtz beaded chain and jump rings to make your awesome tv into a necklace. K? K. Just say'n.

Other than that, you are pretty much set! I'm going to assume you already have distress ink to color it because you are a cool kid like that.

Soooo....what have YOU been up to? Make anything cool lately? Well, now is the time, my friends! Check out what the Gingers have created inspired by the last century and then create something FABULOUS!!!

K. I'm going to keep eating my jelly beans now. Jelly beans make me happy. And mildly hyper. OH! Nope! It's actually the amazing 80+ degree weather that's making me both happy and hyper!!! LOVING IT!!!!! K. Back to the beans. See you folks later!

Jingle Out.

  5. Oh what a cool little tv necklace! Love the style but I'd say it's even more retro than the 80's, maybe the 60's! (I know cause I was alive in those days!) lol-grazing on jellybeans...makes me sleepy:) but it doesn't stop me from eating them!

  8. OMG How frickin cute is that TV, love it. I see your desk is a hive of activity as always, sorry for not visiting in a while xx
    Flower frogs are really hard to get here in the UK for a good price, so i think i'll only have 1 or 2, can't afford many more, you seem to have tons of them in the US, isn't that always the way lol

  9. Hey! Where'd you get my old tv? Shoot, I was born in 1950. Shoulda seen THOSE big old clunky things! That necklace is EXTRA cool & I need to get over to Retro Art and BUY stuff! Uhhhh ... pass the jellybeans, please. I'll take a licorice if YOU don't like 'em!

  10. That is so cool, Jingle! Love that retro TV! Your talent truly amazes me and you, like fine wine, get better as time goes by! :)

    So relieved to hear that your jelly bean stash was replenished. I have to make a Target run later to get some "Robins Eggs" since the grocery store only has these humongous bags...

  15. Love this... all that stickles is awesome... hehe you crack me up... All the jelly beans in this house are gone except for the grape ones so it looks like rabbit turds in the jar.. lol Don't eat em all in one day..

    ReplyDelete
  16. OK now this I totally LOVE because it brings back memories of Saturday morning cartoons and Dark Shadows. I have to agree with Kathy...it does look more like a TV from the 60's and OMGOSH..yes I was around then too ^_^

    YOU did an awesome job but then you always do my quirky artistic chickie.

    Enjoy those jelly beans but in moderation babe...moderation!!!

  18. I LOVE Retro Cafe Art! I ordered 10 or their stencils the other day and so far they have been my favorite tool to play with- I wish they made plastic stencils so they lasted longer but whatever- I use the ones I have and order more.
    LOVE what you did with the mini tv! That is AWESOME! The glitter test pattern is classic- very clever- I would definitely wear it.

  19. I am in love with this retro tv! Although, I have to say that the comment about the 80s and last century made me feel really old! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ermm... not really sure how to break this to you, but maybe you should cut back on the jelly beans just a wee bit. I mean a smidgen ya know? LOVE the TV pendant. OMG! I just don't know what else to say about that because its coolness leaves me speechless. Only I'm not speaking anyway... its coolness leaves my typing fingers stunned into non-movement.
