It's a colorful New Year!

2016 was another year under the belt...
It was creatively busy...
It had some tough times, but equally good times...
But most importantly - it was a year where I tried very hard to regain my creative balance between my Family, Home, and Business.  I did just that :) And since I missed posting in December - I trust everyone had a lovely Holiday and great start to the New Year as well!  

2016 Highlights?
Well, if I had to give the most unusual highlight for the year...
It would be that I started two new Facebook Groups in 3rd Quarter!

A fun place where I do Featured Artisan Spotlights on fellow Artisans and do a variety of creative events, Group Shares, Special Interest Articles, and Tutorials
900+ plus and growing :) 

A creative group for inspiration, special sale events for Jewelry/Tiles/Metalwork
and other Tips/Techniques and Tutorials

THIS YEAR...2017...
Promises to be a very colorful year!

It's a year of new and exciting challenges with my Business - and I'm hoping to improve my day to day schedule, in order to have consistent time for designing Jewelry again...while having dedicated time to create ART Tiles & Molten Metalwork pieces, along with time to paint, and all the other creative mediums I've been missing (Lampwork, PMC, PMC3, Woodburning, Enamel and more).  Wish me Luck!

 Continuing Education wise...
Tomorrow - January 30, 2017...
I begin two Courses (one for Art and one for the Jewelry Business)
So I'm looking forward to learning, and regaining the clarity, purpose, and meaning behind all that I create and do.

And lastly...
My Etsy store is in a bit of a transition...so here's the scoop:
From now until the end of February, it's a Celebration of Jewelry that will be retired to make room for the new Line & Collection debuting in March!
So...Jewelry is all 55% off with coupon code TAKE55

If you're interested in my ART Tiles and Molten Metalwork pieces shown above, they will be available on Facebook.  Next Sale is February 1-3 in the JLynnJewelsCircle Group

I'll be back...with progress reports and sharing of new creative projects!
