Front Page Again! Thanks to Betsy3!!

I am on the front Again of Etsy! Betsy3 is such a doll! And she always makes beautiful jewelry and treasuries!!!

Wednesday, December 3, 2008


I need to get stuff ready to donate to People Serving People in downtown MN... it's cold and I want to get some blankets together! And they have a whole huge list of stuff they need for people.

I can't say Joe and I are doing exceptionally well financially as he's laid-off, but we aren't homeless and we have food.... I feel like I don't give enough... I'm so lucky to have so much and think I should do more...

I'm just rambling on here, I know... without any real pretense, but it's me....

Any ideas for donating my time?

I've been in a jewelry making slump.

There! I said it!

I feel better now. Sweet.

I've been wanting to step away from my fun and functional, cute and chic pieces and try to do some real artful items. Afterall, I was an artist before I did, well, anything really.

Here are just a few new items. The photos haven't been edited or anything, so they are a little dark, but I wanted to share!

Friday, November 7, 2008

A few things I've been working on!

It's blurry... but the best I could do for now... I changed my Bauble ring ever so slightly. It's better than ever!

New colors coming soon... This is just a preview! I'll let you know when I list them!!!!

I have been knitting up a storm. I never realized how much I LOVE cotton! These wash cloths are for my coworker Amanda!<

Thursday, November 6, 2008

It's true.

Facebook is evil. I'm a new addict. I've "run into" old friends from school and met many new people!!!! Fun new people make me happy!

Here is my profile, in case you want to add me:Jenny Bunny on Facebook

oh and I have a group even: Jenny Loves You!

Busy Bunny

I've been busy!

Above are two scarves I've added a little stitching to to prevent unraveling! The black and white is a nice thick weave! The plaid is a bit thinner, but I love the texture! I really only did a small bit of stitching to them because I like the frayed/worn look! I actually don't know if I'm even going to sell them...

Below is a shrug I'm making for my boyfriend's niece who will be arriving in January or maybe earlier! It's an adorable little thing! It's knit in a 3x3 rib and all in one piece! It's going to be so perfect! It's taking a bit of time though since it calls for a size 4 knitting needle! My hands don't love the small work!

I've also been playing around with some cat-toy ideas. So far Cassie and Brutus think it's a good idea... They are so toked on catnip, though... I'm not sure if they really know what's going on!

I have to admit...

I'm plum-tuckered. I've been going through a lot lately, but trying to keep a positive outlook.

When my Grandpa Jim died, I got kind of freaked out. I know it's normal and all, but life really goes by way too fast.... And I don't cherish all the great things I have as much as I should.

I've been sick for over a week now, but it's finally working it's way out of my system... It was horrible. I haven't been that sick from just a cold in so long....

And I'm trying to get back in the swing of things... I haven't made jewelry in a while, but I've been knitting... I even got the sewing machine I've been dreaming about. My main goal is organization though!

Poor Joe! I don't know how he puts up with my mess!

Thanks for reading... Just a little vent!

Something to be listed soon!

Tuesday, October 28, 2008


No, I can't sing... Actually I'm completely tone-deaf. It's frightening.

I GOT A 1970 SINGER SEWING MACHINE!!!! It's got the table and everything! I'm so excited!!! It needed some love and care, but Joe oiled it and I cleaned her up.... She runs like a dream.

Until I can hone my skills a bit though, I'm just making cat toys.... Lots and lots of cat toys. I'm hoping to get a dress form... An adjustable one because I'd really like to do clothing.... It's been a life long goal.... I think I still have notebooks from when I was a kid packed full of designs. Not that they were that good, but they were designs!!!

I'll take pics of the kitties with their toys tonight!

It's amazing!

And it's FINALLY DONE! Yay! I'm just giving a quick preview... I'm not even going to say WHAT it is... Just love it! I wish I could keep it!

It's a little too small for me though!

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

*le sigh*

I am not myself. I looked up the seven stages of grief. I seem to be doing them backwards... or upside down... or just randomly. I am such an analytical person that I find my self examining the emotions I went through on the previous day. I never though grief could be so movie-like and cliche.... I think that's what bugs me... I like to think that I'm unique, but grief is so universal....... But I feel selfish being sad for myself.... It's all a big clusterfuck. Pardon my word, but it is. I don't do emotional well....

I've been knitting. Keeping myself busy.... I made some earrings. Hopefully I'll get to photograph them tonight after the gym!

Thanks for reading my rant.

Monday, October 6, 2008

Umm... Wow.

I was on the front page of etsy on Sunday, 10/5 for about an hour, I would guess.... And wow. I'm not even going to divulge my sales, but it was shocking. I have just started back on etsy selling.... and wow. It was really the thing I needed to keep me motivated and selling on there!

I have many new things coming to my site soon too! How fun! I'm so excited for that!

Thursday, October 2, 2008

Break out.

Not my face... I'm just taking a break.... I'm knitting and crocheting like a fiend, but keeping the jewelry on the back burner. It's enjoyable though. I'm keeping my hands busy!

Oh, a few friends of mine and I have created another blog about our weight-loss journey... I'll post a link eventually, but we have to get everything taken care of layout wise before we do!

I've been really pushing it again at the gym... My friend borrowed me her Weight Watchers calculator, so I'm controlling my intake better too!

I love the gym so much that I'm afraid I'm going to become addicted... is that possible?!

I'm a klutz

I'm surprised I have fingers left on my hands... I was cutting something this weekend.... And the knife slipped. *makes note to get knives sharpened* I have good reflexes though, so it only nicked me...

I was cleaning my food processor blade the other day though and it gashed me pretty bad... OUCH!

Onto the good things that happened this weekend- I was incredibly creative and cleaned a whole bunch! YAY!

Here are some of the newest things!

Tuesday, September 23, 2008



I've been meaning to share this pic... I just had to take it.... I was... um... cutting... fabric... And did this. yeah. I'm cool.

Monday, September 22, 2008


Thank God my little sister is cute. And that I can take good photos... Or else the shoot would have been a bust.

Oh, and when we get together, things tend to get a little goofy.

Here are most of the photos.... Some were just too silly to post!


I love bread. It's a sickness! I make it constantly.... But I don't eat a terrible amount, which is nice... for my ass.

I couldn't even start to tell you how many calories I burn when kneading bread! It's amazing though, that the longer I do it, the more my hands hurt... But the next time, I can do it longer....

The bread tastes so much better than when I mix it in my bread machine....

It's the accomplishment of doing it myself that does it I reckon...

Oh, and seriously, for those of you who say making homemade bread takes forever- You are wrong. It took me about 30 minutes of prep time (spread out over hours) and 30-45 minutes to bake.

Technically you are only working for about 40 minutes! Easy as pie!

Thursday, September 18, 2008

Oh! And...

As for that orange pretty scarf... I realized that I had two different kinds of orange yarn... So, it's not going to be long. It's going to be short and sweet. I just have to finish it now...

I'm slightly disappointed that it's not going to be long. I'm procrastinating on finishing it.... It'll be great when it's done though!

Oh no!

I catch myself falling back into bad habits lately...

I'm one of those people who start stuff.... work on it for a bit... Then forget about it. I'm trying really hard not to be though. The fact that someone, actually two someones, commented about wanting to see what I'm working on motivates me a bit more!

Cowls. I'm newly obsessed. But not boring bland cowls. Be prepared- They are adorable!

My sister will even be modeling them for me on Saturday! I hope to get them listed on my site-site on Sunday!

I'm so excited for fall!

It's my fave time of year and what's better than a little snuggle for your neck!?!?!? NOTHING!


Wednesday, September 17, 2008

It has been written...

That I suck at measuring... And planning out my freehand projects... SO, that being said, I just ripped apart a project for the tenth time. I have to admit, I'm amused though.

Someday it'll work out!

I can't wait to show off some new things soon! Sinces it's been colder, I've been knitting and crocheting! I hope you love them!

Monday, September 15, 2008

What a nice weekend.

I finally got my giftcard in the mail to Barnes & Noble on Friday... $50!!! I rarely spend the money on books I really want, so this was a splurge event for me!

I got three cooking books, an organization book, a knitting magazine..... And I'm in heaven!

I found this great book... 500 3-Ingredient Recipes and I love it! Mind, you there are "freebies" in the recipes- Like, water, flour, sugar are not counted in the recipes, among a few other things. Still, all the recipes are simple and easy. I made homemade granola, for God's sake... How sweet is that!

I was browsing through the knitting magazine and found an awesome artible on invisible cast-ons and bind-offs... I was hesitant to believe that they actually looked like the pics... But, seriously. It's amazing how nice the edges look. I'll link to the magazine when I can remember the name! I forget!

Anyway, it was my dad's birthday on the 11th and we celebrated on the 13th. FOOD! My sister made this mac'n'cheese... Oh. My. God. It was so good. It's the only kind I'll ever make ever again. Ever. Four Cheese Macaroni from AllRecipes- We did add more cheddar. I know that seems crazy when you read the recipe, but my family likes it cheesy.

Sunday was my day of rest... yay. Though I did get some knitting/crochet done... and read A LOT!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Orange you Glad!

I've been working on a new scarf. In orange. I love orange. I love soft yarns too.

This lace pattern was a little above my knitting abilities a few months ago, so I just admired it from afar.

I could not understand the "YO" thing. YO = Yarn Over.

Once I figured it out, I just went crazy on a pattern from The Caffeinated Crafter's Blog... I can't remember which post it is... You'll just have to find the waves and fans pattern!

I love her blog too, by the way. She's one smart cookie when it comes to crafting.

The pattern I used here though was one from a book that was published in 1960-something. The pics are to die for! I love it!

I just wanted to share the progress! It's a wide and warm scarf... Almost done... I need to add another foot and then do the finishing. I'm debating on fringe. I love fringe. But we'll see!

I have allergies. My cats have allergies. It's a funtastic sneezing fest at my house.

Cassie, the cute little black and white girl, has been a sneezer for most of her life, I've been told. We just got her... Wow, about a month ago! She's still bitchy. :)

Brutus is a new sneezer... I was a little concerned about him, but then thought back... and realized he does sneeze when it's dusty... So, I'm not so worried anymore....

I can't wait to have kids... I'll be constantly panic stricken....

Probably not... I'll just learn to drink heavily.

I'm being such a smartass today... lol.

Here is the real reason for the posting... since I'm sure my facetious nature is getting boring.

Some new rings! The are called Loop-di-Loop! Sterling silver and glass beads are two of my favorite things and I seriously LOVE these! They run on the small side though, so I can't really keep one! (I have fat fingers!) Aren't they so cute?!

Friday, August 29, 2008


I'm done with the blanket... Finally! It took me just under a month to do... And I made a few dollars along with it. Now someone seems interested in me making one for them... and I'm *gulp* thinking I could handle it! :)

Giveaways Galore!

I really dooooo love doing them! If only to get people to look at my site(s) to see how fun my stuff is!

So, until Sept 15th, you can comment on Heart Hugs Designs Blog Post to win the fun necklace!!!

Tuesday, August 5, 2008


I added that funny little tip thing on the right instead of offering ad space since this is a mellow blog! You can get a cute little link for $1!! Fun, huh?!

Happy Monday

Oh my goodness! I've been so busy (and stressed) lately. I feel like I'm neglecting my blogs... It's for a good reason though, I promise!

This last weekend was my first NOT doing any jewelry related stuff in months and months.

I hung out with family... Watched The Dark Knight.... Made bread. Caught the most fishes on the boat....

I'm going to post lots of new stuff during the next few days.

Oh, and my ad is up at All Things Girl

Happy 4th of July

I'm so excited to have a day off. I know that sounds horrible, but I really am happy....

And I'm excited it is one of my favorite holidays!

Happy Birthday, United States!

How simply true.

Dream big, my loves... Live the dream......

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

Oh my goodness....

I seriously love cute little girl clothes! I just found this pattern! I know soooo many pregnant women right now, so it gives me something to do!

Check this out from Blue Sky Alpaca

Unfortunately it won't let me borrow their pic!

Thursday, June 19, 2008


Forgot to blog again yesterday! I've been working on somethings lately that are just so time consuming that I can't do any FUN stuff!

Well, today at lunch, I took a few moments to try a new knit stitch!

Tell me what you think! If you'd like the pattern, too, just let me know! It's called the Shell Lace Pattern and I found it in that awesome book from 1977! A lot easier than I thought it'd be!

Friday, June 13, 2008


I've been working on so many things lately! I wonder how I'll ever sell it all, really!

Here are a few of the newest! I love studs and rarely ever take my diamonds out, but for these, I may!

I have these square ones in black also, but realized just a moment ago that you can see my fingerprints on them...

These ones were from an old pair of clip-ons that I carefully took apart... Very carefully! I then glued backs on and there they are!!!

I almost was glued to myself yesterday though, too.... That was FUNNY! I'm going to have to get gloves for studs!

Thursday, June 12, 2008


I've taken to going to the nearby fabric store for a few friends of mine, since they so incredibly cheap! Not my friends! THE FABRIC STORE!!!! I'm talking INEXPENSIVE, but not cheap, really!

Anyway, I'll try to stay on topic. Joe (my boyfriend) actually found this fabric, which I fell in love with.

I sent all the fleece and random cute fabrics to Tiff of Adopt-A-Critter and asked her to make me a cute makeup bag out of some of it!

I literally sent her this fabric less than two weeks ago, ok....

I recieved this stunning, HUGE, PERFECT makeup bag yesterday.....

I was so flabbergasted by it that I sat in the Post Office parking lot for a minute, just to collect myself. It was way beyond what I was even thinking.... It's HUGE! And LINED! WITH FLEECE!

I don't know if you can also see the adorable stitching she added to keep the fleece and cotton (I think) stable and together.... It's almost 12 inches wide and and almost 7.5 inches tall! The base is 3 inches wide! I have too much makeup, so it all fits now!

I'm just so happy with it. I almost cried. Seriously. It's amazing. I hope I do it justice by just typing all this!

Newest Jewelry!

So, I've been incredibly focused on making things, yet tend to be horrible on the business aspects of stuff..... I'm learning as I go! It's been entertaining!

Here are some of the newest things! One pair of earrings, the orange ones are the prize in the contest on my other blog for June! Subscribe to that one to be entered to win them! Oh, I Love That!

Quote of the Week

"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward signifigance." -Aristotle

How odd for a jewelry artist to post this quote, right?

Friday, June 6, 2008

Fans and Feathers

I've always been one of those fairly new knitters who's afraid to try a stitch that involves a bunch of weird abbreviations I can't read! Well, thanks to Tiff of The Caffeinated Crafter and Adopt-a-Critter, I've learned how to do the awesome stitch in the pictures!

For some reason, the colors are slighly off! It's really a dark black! I'm about two feet into a six foot scarf! I think it'll be a lovely, slightly dressier compliment to an outfit!

I had to call her several times to really get the abbreviations down! I just can't read patterns well AT ALL!

If you'd like to try it, here is the blog post from Tiffany: Stichy Goodness on The Caffeinated Crafter Blog!
