I think it's time.

Is it horrible that i want to go back to school and take photography classes??



Jewelry; My creative declaration!

It's kind of scary...

It's almost November...i literally have just over a month to make dozens of pieces of jewelry, in hopes to make back what I've put into Cherry Runway this year. I'm trying not to think about it like this. Especially since i kind of took a CR hiatus to let life take a more adamant role in my well..life.

It's been a crazy year to say the least. But enough babble! ON TO THE JEWELRY! What do you think?
(ahem...Dan...comment!!) ;) (other people too may comment as well) :)

So simple, and yet, i love them so much!! I introduced a whole line of "Jenipher Lyn Jewelry" filled with copper goodness and fall inspired colors at Timothy's Gallery. I hope the jewelry does well! I made the price point more affordable as well.

These little darlings have been on my mind for over a year, and i just never made them. I LOVE how they turned out! Yay for liking CR jewelry! s'bout time! :)

I was really excited to just sit down on my "crafting floor" last night and just make this. A year ago, this would have been the most difficult task, and yet it [seems] so easy. The thought of making jewelry a year ago was terrifying...and yet I've been doing it for over a decade. Oh, what a year can do for a soul and spirit.

Such a year of blessing!!


Who hasn't seen "500 Days of Summer"? If you haven't PLEASE DO SOON! It was such a well written, artistic, wonderful, thought provoking movie, and i highly recommend it. It also romanced the glorious IKEA, the theme park of home decor. (Thanks Carissa!)

In Orlando, if you visit IKEA before 10am, you get free breakfast! Sweet deal! So, my friends and I partook in the food-age, and walked around admiring all the fun rooms i hope to one day emulate in my own home. :)


The eggs and potatoes were free, bacon too (bleh) and we brought Swedish pancakes with lingonberry sauce. It wasn't so shabby. I mean, how can i complain getting free breakfast?


When you do visit, make sure you get the lingonberry juice from the fountain. It's A-MAZING! Much better then the concentrate they sell or the juice boxes either. :)

I still have some friends who have not visited IKEA, you know who you are, and we are going soon!!

PS: Does anyone know how to post videos on blogs? I can't figure it out! :(

Colorful Colorful Life.

Sometimes life has SUCH abundant colors that you can't but embrace yourself in it's beauty.

This pretty butterfly was donated i believe in Hollywood Flower. I honestly can't remember the same of the artist, but they have a whole gallery on Lincoln Road, Miami. If you're ever in the area you should partake in this gallery! It's pretty fantastic!

My friend William painted this beautiful painting during a service at church one time. I love the message and love this photograph. :)

What beautifully colorful things have you seen lately??

Craft on!

New Pretties! New Bloggin'!

Okay folks! It's time...i am going to be a better blogger, for realz! I know I've said this over and over, but now i should have more time since they aren't giving me enough hours at work. :) At least the bright side to THAT is that i have no excuse now!

To be honest, I've been so inspired by all of your lovely blogs, that i didn't want to post if i didn't have something uniquely splendid, but i think I'm just going to go with the flow and hopefully inspire you the same way you inspire me!!

With the new ambition to blog, i have been creating up a storm which has been brilliant!

* Portland (THIS really should be soon!) (Crossing fingers!)
* New York City
* Brooklyn
* Savannah

* Seattle
* North Carolina

Those are all on the "soon i hope" list. :)

Oh yesh...I miss this too. :)

Shrink And Dink

Pre-cooked artwork!

My friend Alex came over this past Monday to collaborate our mad skillz and make some fun charms. Alex is a stellar drawer and created these lovelies in such a short span of time, twas awesome!


When Alex first told me he wanted to draw a black line around the cupcake, i thought he was nuts, but it looks stellar!!

Just Let Go

Growing Jar

Broken Hearted...

I am still amazed by this shrink plastic, it's so neat! And spending time with Alex creating is so fun! I've been yearning for friends to do art with my whole life, and i finally met them. It's just a matter of making plans to do the art, so this was such a blessing!

Alex & the mini's

I hope we get to craft again REALLY SOON! ::wink wink::
