Ho Ho Ho. . .

Santa has come to visit my studio! This is a little peak at my growing Santa collection. I love the Santa mugs - have been collecting these for a couple of years (scored three this year for $2 a piece). My newest edition is the large candy box in the back. He is from the early 1900's - so cool (and unfortunately, I didn't pay $2 for him)! ha! Hope to get this photo up for the Studio Inspiration shortly at the site. This will then leave the Guest Gallery to be finished. My poor "Guest" was given a not-so-sweet gift from her little one that then swept through her family like wildfire! They are on the mend now and I should have something by the end of the weekend. Want a hint about who it could be?? Let's see. . . she is coming to Nashville next year to take photos of the Bowlin family. (Hopefully she is reading this)!!

The December gallery and instructions are all up now. If you are on a Mac and are using Firefox as your browser, you may not be able to view the instructions. Switch to Safari and you won't have a problem.

I wanted those who frequent the blog to know that I read the comments (even though I don't always comment on them). I SO appreciate the notes you take the time to leave. They really mean alot. I am a very emotional person (I attach emotion to EVERYTHING) and as you can imagine, in business (particularly this one that is so message board driven) it is not a good thing and can wear on you fast. Sharing my ideas and developing products is in my blood - I can't seem to leave it. Reading that someone appreciates what I try to do each month, with each product, means the world. Thanks so much!!!

Pin It!

Would your "guest" happen to be the wonderful Tara Whitney? I would so love for her to take my family's pictures! Heck, I would drive up to Tennessee when she comes to take your pictures, JUST TO HAVE OUR PICTURES DONE! Can't wait to see the gallery!

Hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday!

Your little Santa collection is so sweet. It must be so much fun to search and add to each year.
I can't wait to get my new JB kit! I'm going to wrap it and put it under the tree from ME! LOL!

Hollye said...

OMG! When is she going to be in town?????? Is she coming just for the Bowlin family or is she going to schedule other families?

the fabulous "miss T"!!!!!!!! Oh, to be in Tennessee! I can't wait to see what she does with the kit, too! Thanks for all you do, Jenni! You are an inspiration to us all! (and thank you Ruth and Jared for all the behind-the-scenes stuff you do! :-) )

Cutest Santas!! Love the winking one!

Carol said...

The kit and all the accompanying goodies arrived safely, and oh my, the joy of it all. I don't know when I'll be able actually to USE anything---it's such bliss just to hold and touch(appreciate the dear and careful packaging); enjoy and sniff(love new paper smell); and gaze and imagine (junque boxes full of delightful treasures). My, my, my. Happy me. Thank you.

Rachel said...

Your Feb 2006 was the first kit I ever order from any sites online- and I have missed a month since -nor will I ever order from anyone else! your kits are simply the BEST. You can totally feel the thought and love that goes into them. Thank you for putting yourself out there - so inspiring! And how can you not be emotionally attached to something that is such a part of you? thanks to Ruth and Jared for all that they do. Have a blessed holiday season!

Anilu Magloire said...

OMG! Is it Tara Whitney??? I'm gonna die!!! She is my absolute IDOL. Hope I'm right. This month's kit (and every month) is gorgeous. You have an amazing talent for this and you should be very proud of your work.
The fact that you're an emotional person is refeclected in a very positive (and beautiful( way in your kits.
Keep up the GREAT work!
Anilu.

Yep, it has to be Tara! How cool! ;) So glad all is going well, Jenni! LOVE the new site! Your products are beautiful! I hope to start getting them in this new year! For now I need to use up what I have! Our plans changed about a month ago and we're not living in Mt. Juliet anymore. God took us to Colorado. ;) Happy Holidays to you and your family!

So we are moving cross country from WA to GA next week. It is a total state of chaos around here. But what did I do today?? Scrap!! I got your beautiful goodies and I've already made one layout and the flower mini book. I really need to pack up those supplies, but I think I might take your things with me in the car. I can't bear the thought of them being damaged.
Thanks yet again for all of the love you put into what you do. You are absolutely amazing.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Junque Boxes. My 10 year old daughter and I had a wonderful time looking at all of the unique "tresures." I ordered the Christmas and Old School boxes and plan to order the other ones next month. Thank you for everything you do. You bring my duaghter and I such joy. I am so thankful that I signed up last Feb. and have all of your monthly kits and projects. We're in Jenni heaven!!

Amy said...

I got my ornament kit today and I am so excited to put "vintage" circa 1974 Christmas photos in them! I have been waiting and waiting for something to so with these pictures! Thank you so much!

annkelli said...

Such memories!
My two brothers and I each had a Santa mug like the one in the front of the picture.
It's what we drank our milk from at dinner.
Think I just aged myself since these are vintage mugs!

I'm sorry that I've to post here, you could delete it after you read it...but please help as this is an international order...so it very costly to us..exchange rate is almost 2 times..

I've ordered a 1 October 2006 Papercrafting Kit $29.95 under order no 1099.

Just Realized that my scrap buddies had ordered the same kit. Can I change this to the Jan 2007 kit instead! PLEASE! Thank you!

Please reply as I have returned email from your following

order-confirmation@jennibowlin.com and no reply from the Q&A in the site..etc...

You must have been a very good girl this year to have found so many cute little Santas, Jenni.

Love them almost as much as I love my December kit.

TracieClaiborne said...

Love the Santas! I hadn't seen the box in back - gorgeous! You ALWAYS find the cutest things. Always.

sarah green said...

Making me jealous reading everyone's comments on the kit...can't wait to get mine!! Used to have no trouble seeing the site but for the last 4-5 days it just won't go there???

Nicole S. said...

oh, Tara...take your time to get well...the last thing you need is to be so sick around the holidays...we'll patiently wait for you! you're so worth it!!!

Jennie said...

Just can't wait to see the guest gallery Tara, get well soon.

Jenni, I just LOVE everything I got in my box this month, those junque boxes are to die for, I want more now! I love your papers, they are so my colours. I love the project kit, the little houses, and am going to have to find somewhere those metal pins used for flower arranging that you keep using. Gosh my mum had loads of those when I was a kid. I must check out Ebay.

Merry Christmas too.

Jennie from UK xx
