Celebrate good times......Come on!

(I know you are singing that song right now and groovin' where you are! It is such a perfect party song, don't you think?)

Hello my friends! Great news tonight...had to share...

A few weeks ago I blogged about a necklace that I created using Jangles ceramic beads for the Art Bead Scene challenge based on the Matisse painting "The Goldfish". At the same time I was also attempting to enter the Jangles Creative Celebration. I realized quickly that the necklaces were one and the same. Jennifer Heynen graciously agreed that I could post the necklace in both places.

I was so honored to be chosen as the Art Bead Scene Designer of the Week for March 16-20.

As if that weren't cool enough, tonight was the Jangles Creative Celebration. On her website, Etsy spot and blog, Jennifer continually posted the most wonderful creative entries all night long. Jennifer is a master marketer and networker. How cool is it to see all the great things that people dream up to use her beads? The way that each artist used the array of bright and happy beads was so inspiring. I made a point to look at each one and make a comment.

I took a short American Idol break around 9:00pm cst. When I came back to refresh the page, imagine my surprise to find out...

I was steadily filling up my cart on Etsy with Jennifer's funky finds all night as I saw how very cool all the designs were. Well, now I have a $100 to play with in her store! I have to get back to her shop quick before the special one day 25% off sale ends! But I just had to toot a bit...

"If I need a cause for celebration
Or a comfort I can use to ease my mind
I rely on my imagination
And I dream of an imaginary time."
~ Billy Joel

Thanks for the inspiration, Jennifer at Jangles!

Enjoy the day!
