Welcome to Studio Saturday! Each week one of our contributors gives you a sneak peek into their studio, creative process or inspirations. We ask a related question of our readers and hope you'll leave comments! As an incentive we offer a free prize each week to bribe you to use that keyboard.
The following week we choose a random winner. This week we are at the studio of Jennifer Jangles.

This weeks winner is Jill from Beading Mommy. You won a $25 gift certificate to Heather's website, http://www.humblebeads.com/.  Send Heather your e-mail address and she will get you your prize.


Happy Saturday!

It's spring! or at least I think it is. I am living a year of Christmas here. It's full swing snowmen and Christmas trees in my studio these days. My new fabric line, Jolly Holiday will arrive in stores next month. That means I am working to get out holiday buttons to these same stores. I pretty much started on these right after the holidays.

That's okay, because if you ever read my blog or receive my newsletters, you know I do love the holidays. I did manage to get in some new spring work. I made these owl buttons and pendants. But, I have to admit, I feel a bit like I am missing spring.

Maybe next year...

It's give away time! Leave me a comment and tell me what you favorite season is. If your picked as the winner I will send you some owl buttons.

Have a great day,
Jennifer

What a colorful and happy studio space.

Kathy said...

Fall is my fav season - not too cold and not too hot, great colors, and well Christmas time is coming, lol.

Erin S said...

my favorite season is fall, which is ironic because I live in southern California where we really don't have fall. The owls are very cute!

As you as the blogpost loaded and I could see the fabulous colors on the studio shot, I knew this was a Jangles posting! Love your pics today as my favorite season is winter...NOT looking forward to spring, as it is short lived and will soon be too hot to be outside. PS: LOVE those owls!!!!!

Love the colourful owls...they look extremely cute and how you make them sit in your jewellery will be interesting to see.

The owls are adorable.
I see lots of possibilities with those holiday pieces. I'll wait - I want summer first!

Cheryl Roe said...

Favorite holiday is definitely Christmas but season is definitely spring. My daughter would love the owls. Snowmen are adoreable.

Skye said...

I love Autumn :)The gorgeous colours, the crisp air, the crunch of fallen leaves beneath your feet, the scent of burning leaves... and of course, my favorite holiday, Halloween :)

Beading Mommy said...

OMG! THANKS SO MUCH! Jennifer, I LOVE YOUR BEADS!!!!!! (Sorry for the yelling, I just get so excited!)

Lynda said...

What a happy, colorful place to express your creativity. Fall is definitely my favorite time of year with the crisp cool weather, when I get to pull out my best sweaters to wear. It also puts me in the mood to cook up pots and pots of soup...yum.

I love spring and all the new growth, flowers, color. The colors in your beads are great.

Kristi said...

Spring is my favorite season, not too hot or cold and lots of rain.

Alicia Coats said...

It's a toss up between spring & fall. I love to watch the leaves change colors in the fall & the crisp autumn air, but I also love watching the flowers bloom & the trees bud in the spring. Love your ceramics & would love to win some owl buttons! They are adorable!

Spring is my choice. Spring brings new life, new growth, the start of warm weather, beautiful flowers, birds singing, bees humming and polunating. And my favorite Butterflys. Its a magical time of year and Im so glad here in Michigan its almost here. Your owls are adorable. I have made some out of clay before but yours are lovely. Blessings and happy creating.

My favorite season has got to be Autumn. I'm lucky enough to live in Vermont where we have gorgeous Falls! I don't think anyone could beat your studio for a cheerful working space.

Linda said...

Fall is my favorite season...I LOVE those colorful owls!

JeannieK said...

Hot dang I hope I win.

It's like a well organized business always thinking ahead. I know what that is like. Don't have a favorite season really. I like each one as they come and go.
Have a great week and good luck everyone

Summers here aren't that crazy hot so I like them as they slide into autumn. My production schedule is also geared so that I'm finishing up my Halloween and Christmas season pieces at that point which is probably my favourite part of my studio year.

Linda Landig said...

I love your adorable owls!!! My fav season is autumn--the colors just fill me with joy. My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving, because it is less commercialized and more family focused.

Kim said...

I always love seeing your studio it is so bright and happy. I love the owls they are adorable!

Shannon Chomanczuk said...

JenniferJangles said...

JenniferJangles said...

I wish I could be more like you and love the seasons as they come.

Maybe next year!
