Friday's Winner...and We're going to Omaha tomorrow

Tomorrow is our show at Rockbrook in Omaha. We are there from 10-5, and looking forward to good weather. I made new charms any Omaha-area high schools I could think of...Omaha friends, I'd appreciate if you have further suggestions, especially since I'll be doing several fall shows in Omaha! I made over 200 new initial charms, several new sports bitties, some gymnastics charms, and lots of mommy-themed words.

I had fun reading my comments this week...hoping for even MORE in the weeks to come, especially since I'm planning to continue my give-aways, maybe on a weekly basis. I'll have updates on that and photos (?) from Saturday's show ready to post on Monday.

Becky (hooray!) is this week's winner. You can pick out your doodle-combo the next time you shop in the studio (or if you make it to Omaha!). Happily, I recognized all of my comment-ees this week. I realized after my post that there is the potential for someone I don't know to comment, or for me to have more than one "Jane S." on my list! Good thing this week went without a hitch. So, I'll announce my winners here, and they can e-mail me that they saw their lucky-ducky name.

My post on Monday will also have my hours for Stop-and-Shop on May 7-8. I have several custom orders that will be ready for those dates and even more fun items for shopping, especially if you didn't make it to the pre-order show last weekend.

Something new in my studio...and let's try a GIVE-AWAY!!!

These were something new I added to my glass goodies for my open house, Brown Dog Doodles. I also added these new stretchy chokers, in black and some bright summery colors.
I'm so happy that I was able to visit with everyone who attended my show...some "old" faces, and then some brand new visitors! Now I have a busy few weeks to finish up all of the special and mommy-wear. Don't forget that I will have open hours in my studio for picking up your special orders, but I will also have many pretties available to purchase, as well as gift certificates if someone would like to pick out their own GIFT!
And now...I'm going to try something new! I'm going to give away a doodle-combo. You pick an initial or word from my inventory, and then you can choose one of my new stretchy chokers. Everyone who adds a comment to this post on my blog will be entered, and the winner will be randomly chosen on Friday. GoOd LuCk!

in time for Mother's Day...

I've been busy in the studio getting ready for this week's open house...Friday April 23 (10-3 and 5-8) and Saturday April 24 (10-3). So many new items ready for glass charms...lots of new initials, occupations, fun spring florals, brand new brown dog doodles, and baby twinkles.

I've also been working on new silver charms and jewelry...sweet by themselves, but made even better when I add custom touches...your children's names, meaningful words or quotes, important dates.

Orders placed during these show dates will be ready for Mother's Day, and may be picked up (with any last minute ideas!) during the stop-and-shop dates, May 7-8.

I'm hoping for some sunny days so that I can add some teaser photos of new items, to get you ready for what you'll see in my studio!
Now, off to work...I have a lot to do!

Opening the door... my studio!
I think this is the next step in keeping everyone updated about developments in my studio. I hope to post upcoming show dates, new jewelry additions, and more! I'll still be available by e-mail and will continue to have regular trunk shows.
