Let's Have a Giveaway

     Last night my granddaughter spent the night at my house, and today we all went to a birthday party of one of her friends. Her mother, brother and I piled in their car with her and drove to a park. The weather has been so odd - yesterday the temperature was in the 70's, then it poured rain for hours, and the temperatures fell. Today it was very windy and chilly for the outdoor party. The kids didn't seem to notice, they ate hot dogs and played on the playground, and had a great time. It was fun going to the party with them, I hadn't done anything like that with my daughter and her kids before. They were very tired afterward, and went home with an idea of naps for everyone.
     So I have the afternoon to myself, and I think I will go over to the studio and work on some new pieces. I make things that I like the looks of, and just hope that someone else will also like them and be inspired to create with them.
    I need some guidance, some feedback on the types of things that folks like, and I'm willing to do a giveaway to get you all to post your thoughts. 
    If you will go over to the Etsy shop and look at the new things I'm working on, the resin, polymer clay and pewter, and post here as a response what your particular favorite look is - one person will be selected from the responses to win the oval focal resin pendant in the picture. And as I usually do, everyone who posts a response will get some kind of a thank-you from me when I announce the winner.
     So please go over the the Etsy shop, look at the new work, and give me your honest feedback (good or bad!), for a chance to win the oval pendant!And thank you, in advance, for the feedback. I really need it!

Hmmm, a very difficult choice to make with all that lovely stuff there. I've always loved resin, but right now my favorites are the bezels with the old images inside--the clock and Edenborogh are my favorites.

Love the resin...these look old and dreamy. I think the locker tags will make great connectors and would be perfect for earrings (can you make the words vertical?) The religious medallions are so in right now and are becoming more difficult to find and matched sets are rarely found. I am a big fan of your work and I love them all.

Okay. You know I love everything you do. Unfortunately, I horde it obsessively! I need to remedy that! I love the look of those vintage pictures, like tintypes or finding an old locket. You know I love keys and I am thrilled to see that you are still selling the keys from the mold you made! So I love that heart keyhole lock thing. It is in my cart right now! But those faux ceramics make me dizzy with excitement! I love them! Especially the red and soft green colors. They do look so old and antique-y. I am swooning here! Keep it up. There is nothing you make that I wouldn't love to have and design with.

Enjoy the day!

Oh if only I weren't on a bead diet. *sigh*
I had to read the descriptions 2 or 3 times to realize you made everything yourself.
I love the religious medallions (I have a crazy huge collection) and can't believe you were able to replicate them!
My favorite is the faux ceramics though. Yummy. I can't look away. I am swooning over the teal one.

I adore everything you do! You make thee best new old looking things! Your new resin pieces are the most gorgeous I have ever seen, especially in those pewter bezels, it is a fantastic combo. My favorite are the teal color pieces, the waterlily is divine, and the amber colored pieces are exceptional, it's really amazing! Also love the ship...dreamy!
Thanks for the chance to win!

You must live in Georgia! That's exactly the weather we've had and it's insane, or bi-polar might be a better description. I visited your shop and LOVE the Beau Luna Pendants, the birds, the hearts and the hands. Actually, I love all your work, you're super talented.

I am so glad you have found time to go back to your studio. And I love what you are doing. I really like your new bezels, but I have a real soft spot for your gorgeous ceramic-y polyclay pieces too. And everytime I see your Normandy piece in pewter, I want it again (even though I still have the last one I bought from you - "HORDING"

Keep on keeping on!

I LOVE the faux ceramic hearts! I really like the technique you use in those. I also like the cast components, but the splash of color is a nice touch.

Penny said...

Lynn, I especially love the merlot lilypad and the evergreen cockleshell. But they are all beautiful. I love that you are adding the polymer clay to the bezels.

Lois Moon said...

My favorites from the new work are the faux porcelain pendants. The colors are beautiful and the is something about the translucence (faux) of the finish against the solidity of the pewter bezel that I love. I'm still in love with all of your old work - especially anything in the art nouveau style.

I love all of your pieces as well. I am partial to your tin type pieces since I don't have any old photos of my family. The faux ceramic pieces are very cool. Your pieces are unlike anything else I've seen so keep doing what you do so well.

Well, just to name a few LOL, I really like all of the key and keyhole, padlock themed items and the red robin connector is to die for! Thanks you!
