The Partay Give-Away!

Every fun party leaves its' guests with a treat of some sort.  I've been known to give fake mustaches before!  (of course it was for a Spy Party when William turned 9)  This etsy kick-off party was an idea I decided to just roll with.  A little cheesy, yes.  A little unexpected, yes.  But for some reason I am slap happy these days!  I suppose it has something to do with, but certainly not limited to finding a rhythm finally in this new lifestyle.   So happiness I've been told is contagious.  I hope it sticks around for a spell.  Yep.

Anyways, the give-away is this new necklace style:

It was one of those laying in bed trying to figure out what the heck to do with the 100 clay birds I bought on etsy months ago that have just been sitting in egg cartons waiting for their moment "a-ha!" moment.  Love those.  So quickly I ran downstairs and tried it first with a thicker brass strip.  This was a little more complicated than I had wanted (there are 100 birds peeps, I was not kidding).  So I decided to whip out the 500 ft coil of copper wire and make more of a hanging nest!  (I tend to buy in bulk I've noticed.) And so it began.  And many birds now have sweet cages to dangle from.  And make you oh so happy to wear.  Right?


Now the good part....unfortunately I can't party favor you all.  Wish I could!  But one lucky person who leaves a comment below telling me what they are over the MOON happy about right now gets their name in the pot to win one of the birdcage hoops.  (it could be as simple as eating a yummy cupcake)  You get to the choose bird color.  We can get to that later.  Right now, you guys need to get to commenting below!!

Oh....and the drawing will be FRIDAY......happy commenting.

Oh, my gosh I love your paintings and Jewlery and glad to see you have more up on etsy so I can bug my husband for a Valentine piece!

What I am excited about...we got a surprise yesterday. Snow here in Washington DC, we were supposed to get rain. We had just enough to sled last night after dinner. Got our 2 1/2 year old son Jack with his sled. Lots of laughter and fun!

Great necklace!!! I'm happy about so many things... But one happiness that seems to echo your own is that between taking pictures and subbing I am doing work that I love!

I am over the moon happy about my son. He just turned a year old and his smiles melt away all the bad things in my day and fill me with joy!

I have an awakened enthusiasm for everything that involves creating or living life to the fullest. I just turned 40 and feel the joy of discovery and possibility for the decade ahead. I find that I am over the moon often . . . a phone call with a friend, seeing beautiful artwork, birds playing in my yard, a walk with my dog, a thrift store find . . .

Jenni - You have been so BUSY! I don't know how you do it all. What am I over the moon happy about? HMMM.... LIFE - just Life. I love it all!

My latest moment of happiness was getting out in the garden yesterday. I've let my garden go for about a year. For some reason last year I just stopped, didn't feel like it. Yesterday, we had an unusually warm california afternoon (for January) and I spent just 40 minutes clearing out some of the roses. It felt wonderful in the sun!

Nikki said...

I'm over the moon happy about love and sunshine right now! And I think your new jewelry is wonderful!

Jill said...

Goodness...When I think about it- I'm over the moon with just about everything!!- life, being a wife & mommy, His daily gifts to us, working on a new painting for our new home, trying a new cookie recipe...etc. etc. AND the re-opening of your etsy shop! (I have been dreaming of a special piece for a long time now)
Happy Re-Opening!!
Blessings!

LOVE this necklace!

I am "over the moon happy" that my kids are safe and sleeping soundly! There is nothing like the angelic faces of sleeping children, babies and six year olds alike.

Bernadetteloi said...

I Love the necklace...It is very unique! what I am excited about was during school reopening! I am very happy to see my friends1 I have not seen them during the holidays!I miss them very much...during that day, we talk pretty much about our holidays...

JJoy said...

Jenni, these necklaces are just lovely...perfect for someone like me who is bird-crazy...I just love birds, and you can find them in many of the things I create. I am just loving the fact that I am able to live an artful life-it's what makes my heart sing!

One thing... can't keep it to one. Sorry! I am over the moon that I am leaving tomorrow for Latvia to photograph orphans! I get to come back and compile a photolisting and try to get families to host them! I am over the moon that someone traded vacations with my husband and he will be off to take care of our chillies the entire time! And I am over the moon at God's grace and love and encouragement He has poured out on my through precious friends the last couple of days! Having laundry almost done and packing is almost a trip over the moon as well! Add your adorable super chic necklace to the loot and I'll need a spaceship! LOL Hugs! And THANKS for asking!!
