Grow Your Blog Party

Welcome...I'm happy you have made it to my little corner in blogland!
Today I'm joining Vicki @ 2 Bags Full for the "Grow Your Blog Hop".  The purpose is for you and your blog to gain more exposure and meet others along the way.  
Thank's Miss Vicki!

My name is Jenny.  I'm wife to Jose, my college sweetheart, auntie and Nina (Godmother) to a gazillion nieces and nephews.  I have 5 wonderful sisters and 3 crazy brothers, lol - I have a very large family.  I work full-time at a large university with college and high school students, which I love, but I also have a passion for creating. 

I discovered the creative bug as a young girl but really didn't fully embrace it until after I graduated from college.  Since, I have delved in flower arranging, party planning, sewing, home decorating,  folk art, ceramics, mix media, scrapbooking, and finally the jewelry bug hit big time.  Creating and repurposing jewels and baubles continues to be my favorite.  Although, I do take breaks from jewelry making to play with my other crafts, especially if I have been on Pinterest,lol.

Anyway, that is a synopsis of who I am and I hope you continue to return for a visit.

I will be giving away a prize...a bracelet.  I like to make pieces with photos, so maybe something along the lines of a memory bracelet.  I just participated in another blog for which I made this special piece to honor my godmother's memory (see previous post).  This is it:


It does not have to be like this one.  Your choice of colors and beads and of course your favorite photo.  We will work out the details once you win.  

My only two requirements are to leave me your email address in the comment section of my blog and be participating in this blog hop.  

Happy Blog Hopping everyone!



Creating for the greater good.

Super wonderful way to honor your grandmother. I have collected beads and bangles and the necessary items to turn some of my moms necklaces (she always wore long strings of colorful beads) into bracelets for my sisters. Your jewelry inspires me to get busy!

Hi Jenny, visiting via Vicki's GYB party and think your bracelet is really cute. Love the story behind it.

susan said...

Hello Jenny - I am here from Vicki's 2 Bags Full.

Your jewelry is gorgeous. It is all the more special when there is a story behind it - like the bracelet you made to honour your godmother.

Thanks so much for putting up a tutorial about making pearl crosses. I will be making some for next Christmas or maybe for the end of a bookmark.

I also want to make a vintage paper tree. It looks like you put glitter on the edges of the paper. So elegant.

OMG, Jenny, you are playing with jewelry and I have so wanted to do that. However, sanity has been restored (for now) and I'm sticking with what I know and love: sewing and photography. The memory bracelet is marvelous, simply marvelous. I'm gonna follow you so I can stay current with your activities and artwork.

What a generous giveaway -- I just love that style of memory jewelry! Nice to meet you!

Maggie said...

Jenny, it's nice to meet you! I'm stopping by from Vicki's party, and am signing up to follow you! Your bracelet giveaway is really beautiful--I love the combination of chain with pearls! I solder too, and I really love how you have finished the top of the crystal charm. But what I want to come back and see more of are all the religious icon images I see. Please come by my blog and giveaway when you get a chance, and you'll see that I paint angels. I want to start painting the Blessed Virgin and also Santos. I am so drawn to religious iconography. Hope you can stop by.
