I'm a finalist!!!

I am so so excited!  Marsha's husband Dave was the special guest judge and he chose my palette!  I couldn't believe it!  I still can't quite, but regardless, I am so excited.  And Marsha has put the bundles up on her Flickr and in her shop :)  Ready?  Here it is:

Jennifer Justman Pandora's Box

I am so pleased, when I was sorting out the colors from the painting, from my inspiration, I really wanted the gold to shimmer against the darker, cooler blues.  Here is the painting again:

Pandora's Box by John William Waterhouse

See my original post about my palette HERE if you missed it :)  Now that my palette has pulled all gorgeous like (thank you, Marsha :) ) you can purchase it in Marsha's store!  http://cart.marshanealstudio.com/silkbundles/2mmSilkBundles

She will also have them up in her Etsy shop soon :)

So what's next?  Quoting the lovely Marsha's blog:

"1. Purchase silk knot bundles for projects, giveaways, promotions, etc.
2. Create and photograph projects using these silk palettes (round 1 and 2 all apply).
3. Blog or share those photographs about the projects and your inspirations.
4. I will be hosting some design challenges/ blog hops around things you make with these silks so you can show off your stuff!"

Read the whole blog post (with all the other finalists and their amazing palettes)  here:

And if you'd like to see how the challenge works and what the other finalists and I are working for, you can learn more HERE.  Thank you so much for all of you that voted for my palette! 


Such a pretty sky yesterday :)

I have been enjoying more family time the last couple of weeks, spending time with my little ones, playing in the backyard... enjoying the (sometimes) warmer weather :).  We are going on a little vacation starting this Thursday to spend the 4th with family down in Brookings.  Since I won't be here over the 4th itself, I'm having a sale from today through Wednesday night in celebration instead!  20% off anything in my shop using the coupon code:  4THOFJULY  .   I will get everything packed up and shipped out Thursday morning on my way south!  I will have a few items going up hopefully today, if I can get the littles to give me some breathing room ;).  

Hope you all have a fantastic week and (in case I don't manage to get back on here before) a wonderful Independence Day!
