From this....
^^to THIS!^^

My friend Billie [from Zu-Li Designs] offered to make these for me to see how they would look and i think she did a STELLAR job!! 

I'm currently putting chains on some of them to print to a local shop to see how they do! I'm very excited! :D 

What do you think?!

Overcommited; BUT happy. :)

Hello beautiful friends!
I've been 'slaving away' making new jewelries, getting ready for Holiday shows, among other {{REALLY COOL}} things i'll blog about later.

In the mean time, i just wanted to  C E L B R A T E  that i finished my WHOLE to do list today!!! And now i get to RELAX some and go hang out with friends, until tomorrow when the CRAZINESS ensues again.

Thus, i had a few moments to take pictures of HOW freaking COOL my hair looks today! 
Now...off to the post office to mail some orders! HOORAY!
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
I hope you get a moment to enjoy the SMALL THINGS!
[like...cool pink hair days]

love and smiles,

SAY CHEESE!!

I thoroughly enjoy cameras. I studied Photography for the small amount of college i attended, but my love for captivating images has never gone away. In certain cultures they believe that taking pictures will steal your soul.

Does anyone know where this came from? It's from Tumblr.
[mine] :)  
How super cool is that Camera Lens Mug?! I want to get one of those for myself. I don't care if it, or the beverage inside steals my soul, it's the coolest coffee mug I'VE ever seen.

Do you have any really nifty camera related awesomeness? I'd love to see!
Have a creative day friends! 
Jenipher :)

Hardware Dangles


Cherry Runway Presents....

The "Steam-ish Punk-ish" Collection!

What do you get when you mix mini washers, clasps, springs, garnet glass beads and a miniature broken fork?

Fun earrings of course!!

These stellar earrings are few of a kind and are different enough to stand from a crowd while still being neutral so you can wear them with anything!

Earrings are approx 2.5 inches long and will come in a pretty green drawstring baggie.

New Pretties...

I've been sick on and off for two weeks now...

Aside from it being a big pain in my rear, and missing work, it's been an ultimate blessing too. I don't think i've let myself rest this much..ever.

I've watched a lot of "Greek" and "Parenthood" and have even been creative here and there. :p



i REALLY like how this set came out. I was cleaning my studio a bit because i was restless, and laid my eyes on these resin pieces and BOOM i had an idea, so i ran to my floor in my room and created it.

It was the COOLEST feeling. i LOVE creative rushes. :)


Simple, delightful, and happy. Just the way i like my "nightly doodles".

And last but not least, a new series i'm working on. Huzzah!

I hope y'all are having a relaxing, sick free, creative weekend!

Smiles and Blessings to you!
Jenipher :)

Baldwin Park Art Show - Part II

I have more photos to share, and more reasons to be thankful about Baldwin Park Art Show. :)



This lovely lady is beyond a blessing!! She is a craft show SUPER HERO!! Seriously, i don't think that i could have done this show with out her. Thank you so so much Amanda! I sincerely appreciate it! I wish i could take you with me to all of my shows.



I'm so thankful that i don't have a pinpointed demographic. Women [and even men] of all ages enjoyed my jewelry at this show. It was incredible! My younger customer [no joke!] was four and my oldest..well i won't say. But either way, i am very thankful.



Courtney and Ana are super dooper and came to say hello both wearing smashing sunglasses courteous of Courtney's sunglasses collection.



My friend Cynthia came to visit and wander around the art show. Cynthia is a super talented artist, and can make anything beautiful [from plating food, to jewelry to scrap-booking, she's so talented!], and hopefully she will grace you with her talented endeavors online soon!

Thank you to all who attended the show, came by to say hello, gave me those positive affirmations and purchased from me. Without you, I wouldn't be able to continue Cherry Runway. :D

Smiles and Blessings,
Jenipher

Baldwin Park Art Show - Part I



The Baldwin Park Art show is a yearly event held in the beautifully [Pleasentville esk] town of Baldwin Park. I've been participating in this show for the last three years and every year it's had a different out come.

This year, by far, was the most successful show i've done in Orlando, and it completely took me by surprise!!

I had so many friends come visit, a wonderful lady ask me to consign my work [and buy a mini "Nightly Doodle" print], and had more faithful, confidence boosting customer's then I'm certainly used too! It was SUCH a blessing!!



Three of the coolest ladies!! They were by far, my biggest fans at the Baldwin Park art show, and such a confidence boost! Lisa and Alicia, and Caitlin were super dooper, fun to chat with, and very enthusiastic. Not only did they come over to my booth four times, they bought quite a stash of my jewelry, and i am very very thankful! :D

I can't wait to see you ladies again at my next show!



Lauren from Breakfast Brunch Handmade came out to say hello, per-ruse the art show, and buy a really swell pair of my locket dangle earrings.



This lovely gal's folks were almost persistent on purchasing my "Steam Punk" necklace for their daughter, which i found stellar!! Even though she liked it, and liked some other pieces they really wanted to have her enjoy this one of kind piece instead



I thought it was really sweet when her dad helped her put on the necklace. :)

I had a really great show and i'm really thankful. Stay tuned for more images, some new work and some really fun new doodles as well. Huzzah!


Smiles and Blessings,

Jenipher

Jenipher with a splash of Cherry Runway

I've been trying to mix up all of the craftiness in my world by creating loads of different genres of work. Right now i really love these nightly doodles and have enjoyed drawing every day.



i <3 flowers.

This is one of my favorite nightly doodles I've done.



Hee. So simple and still makes me smile.

I love art.




Chains of Smokey Garnet

$32.00





Autumn

$30.00

It's hard to make sure I'm devoting enough time to Cherry Runway right now, especially since I've been enjoying other art venues so much right now, but I've still had time to create some new designs.


So what do ya'll think?? :)

Smiles and Blessings,

Jenipehr

I've been blogged about! Huzzah!

Yesterday was a wonderful confidence filled day.

I had an acquaintance-y friend tell me that my nightly doodles are a daily part of his Facebook reading routine.

My co-worker told me i was really talented when i showed her some random doodles i did while working.

AND....i was featured in a blog! Huzzah!! What a lovely day!





Mission Possible.
$19.00


Elke has a neato blog and Etsy shop. On her shop "Sweet Twee Lab" she sells home made kits and other fun items, and on her blog she posts daily "random word" etsy pickin's. The word she choose to find my lovely astronaut was "possible".




The coolest part about her is that she is a scientist by day, and a crafter by night. I LOVE it when folks have the brains and the crafty talent. That's so exciting to me! It seems you have the best of both worlds. :D




Thank you so much for featuring me. I appreciate it. :D

One Year Ago [today]....

One year ago today [but really yesterday for the first image] we were doing this REALLY amazing series at my church called "Relent and Respond" where we learned to really evaluate the way we love ourselves, each other, our families, and learned to work with our communication and relationships.



It was a brilliant series and came with a note book to really jot down your thoughts, with questions.

You were supposed to join a team of people and discuss it with them. After the 2nd service, two of my closest friends and I went to this little "old people" diner across the street and had a great meal [Grilled Cheese! Fresh fries, salad] I tried Okra and "fruit cup" for the first time.

It really was a fun night.



Aqua Copper Necklace
$25.00


I also suppose i started my "Copper Collection" series this week, one year ago. And this spiffy necklace/earring set came about!



Aqua Copper Earrings
$25.00




Aqua Copper Set
$40.00


SAVE $10.00!! :D [[huzzah!]]

And...one day, while creatively stricken, i decided to art journal for the VERY first time. This is what i was oh so thankful for, one year ago today...funny...some things never change, and some things you'll never write down again. Life is a crazy circus.



Sculpty clay and Colored Dyes. :D



I went to my friend Patti's house to do crafts last weekend and had a great time! We decided to paint and make pendants with Sculpty clay.

I've never used clay in any form, so it was such a treat so try and completely different technique.




They came out so cute!!

After you stamp the clay, you cut out the pieces and bake them for 15 mins.





We used colored dyes and mixed them with clay glue to paint onto the clay pieces.



I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stamp! I literally danced around with it, took MANY images of it, and then stamped it on quite a few pieces of clay.



After you paint on the pieces, you bake them one last time for 10 mins to set the color.

Look how perdy the pieces came out after we baked them a 2nd time!

This technique is super simple, didn't take very long and had great results, i HIGHLY recommend it!

Baby Goals...II



Hello friends....I hope you are having a good start of your week! I'm actually feeling very crummy right now. I think i have a stomach flu. Blah! I've been in bed most of the day, but spending a lot of time reading online has been quite enjoyable. Not quite practical but ah well.. :D

So.. goals.... :D

I have put 4 items on my new supply shop, have taken pictures of all my nightly doodles, but not uploaded them, and have forgotten the rest. Sigh...at least it's a step in the right direction!




I guess that's a good start. I'll keep working on it.

Have you accomplished anything stellar this week??

Tell me about it!

Smiles and Blessings,

JENipher :D

One Year Ago..TODAY!!

I heart my iphoto. Apparently, THIS is what my mind was thinking about one year ago.

One Year Ago..TODAY!

Obviously, my Christmas tree was still happily lit.

This time last year is when i was going to take a 6 month sabbatical from working a day job to try and work on Cherry Runway full time

Then silly life at it's best, had a different direction for me, and i I got a new job a couple months later.

One Year Ago...TODAY!

Delicious home made eggs and potatoes. I <3 breakfast foods too.

And finally...a lovely necklace i finished...

The month of Romance..

Alas...some Valentines Goodies for you to purchase for someone you love!

BIG Heart.
