January Sneak Peaks!!


12 tiny cards (3x3) with unbelievable early 1900's graphics and timeless quotes just waiting for you to add the year and circle the day. The perfect way to date your pages. You get the full set in this month's kit! A brand new product from JBS and exclusive to the Papercrafting Kit until March. And. . .if you like these, you will love the Project Kit this month! Just in time for the new year- a 2008 calendar project featuring these same cards in a 6x6, 2008 format. Check out the Gold reproduction millinery flower- you have to see and touch it to really appreciate it!!And here is the Add-On kit. This gives you a little insight into the color scheme and theme of the Papercrafting Kit! A Vintage Porcelain Watch Face, Ultra Fine Black German Glass Glitter, an assortment of Vintage Price Tags, 3 Pinbacks made from vintage dictionary pages (from Etsy Shop Sushipot) and a fabulous rubber stamp from Savvy Stamps are a few of the highlights.Vintage Kit #1 (all Vintage Kits can be found under Limited Edition Kits) is this sweet Valentine Banner featuring a tiny vintage chandelier crystal, vintage papers and gold German glass glitter.


Vintage kit #2 is this SWEET Hodge Podge Valentine book featuring 2 vintage valentines (dating from the early 1900's to the 1950's) and tons of other vintage materials joined by a single vintage antique brass ring. I am in love with this concept - you will be seeing many other versions of this Hodge Podge book in the future!!



Vintage Kit #3 is a new bracelet kit- this version with a Valentine theme featuring a vintage bingo marker, an old rhinestone paste button, and a tiny vintage rhinestone metal button and hot pink pearl dangle to finish.


And finally. . . One of my first introductions to the new "Boutique" area.


I have been dabbling in jewelry design recently, all with a "re-purpose" and "re-invent" kind of theme. I have been collecting vintage parts and pieces for several months in mass! The offerings will vary in price (as many items will include highly collectible Victorian jewelry parts and fine silver and gold) and availability (some items being one-of-a-kind while others will be massed produced when available). Everything is handmade- by me! My little creative escape when I can find the time. Most offerings will actually be introduced mid-month instead of on the first and will be announced here.
For this month I have put together two "Sweetheart" necklaces. One has a vintage pearl as shown here, and one has a vintage red heart bead. All parts are vintage brass and have a WONDERFUL warm patina - I love them! The chain is 16". I do have several of each- I have been working my little fingers hard over the break! I also have about 10 silver adjustable rings with a vintage Lucite carved dark pink rose that you will find on the 1st as well!
All items on sale tomorrow, New Year's Eve, at 12:00a.m. central time.
Have a safe and happy New Year's!
(Sorry for the confusion! I realized when I wrote this yesterday that I said "tomorrow" above but the date for the post is showing as Dec 24 since I had loaded the pictures and saved the post before I went out of town. You will not be able to purchase any of these items until tonight, Dec 31st, New Years Eve, at 12:00am.
Also - the Boutique area will indeed be live so that is where you will find the new handmade jewelry. )

Hello Jenny and all your hard working staff! I check every day to see when the sneak peaks are up, and when they arrive it is torture! Your pieces are always beautiful and individual and we never know what is going to be next. Because I am from Australia, I am not sure exactly what time they will be released, so at the beginning of every month I am up late on my computer because I don't want to miss any! A 'true blue' Aussi Jenni Bowlin fan.
Love and Best Regards,
Leonie
