Yay! It's happening again...

Okay, truth is I am never happy with anything too long. I am the person constantly trying to find a better way to do something. So that is why there are more changes with the layout :)

I have been dreaming of babies....

More like daydreaming but they are still there. Unfortunately they aren't in my future but they might be in yours :)

New year is almost here

Hello everyone!

It has been so very long but the holiday are over and I can finally breath again!

So of course this is the time of year to organize and purge and just get ready for a new start. I have so many new items on the horizon for you but I wanted to take today to just show you a little glimpse of my home studio. It is also our playroom and office and boy did it need a lot of work!

Black Friday Listings

Make sure that you check out some of the items we marked down for our Black Friday specials! It's our family listings of lounge pants. They are 30% off and such a steal. Make sure to check them out!

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

The holidays are here! Specials galore!

What am I thankful for? Just about everything right now. I have had my patience tested so many times lately and I'm still here. Maybe I have been a little absent but I'm still figuring out that life/work balance thing :)

Monday, November 21, 2011

I'm still here

Okay, so I have been so busy with orders that I can barely get anything else done. I'm glad to have a problem like that but wow! I am ready to do some fun things this week for Black Friday and Cyber Monday! What would you like to see and maybe I can make it work for you! :)

Soul Searching this Saturday

So let's try something new....I'm in a spot right now with my life/work balance way out of whack but know that things are going to majorly change within the next couple weeks. So I'm riding out the storm but I have definitely needed the forced break that I have had to take.

Happy "Unofficial" Anniversary Honey....

So today is my hubby and my unofficial anniversary. You know the one where we started "going steady". LOL. We have been together 18 years today. Although we were pretty inseparable before that point. I just didn't want to see it. But we were really young, we were in high school, he was a freshman and I was a junior. Yes I am a cradle robber. It was a big deal back then, but obviously not anymore. We have been through high school graduations, college graduations, first real jobs, first real layoffs, family deaths and births. We have had some definite rough patches but I am so thankful for everything we have together. Especially these cute little faces....

Got coffee?

There are some times in your life when you wonder if there is ever enough coffee in this world to make it through another day! LOL! Even with it I can barely keep my eyes open anymore and I'm seriously thinking about resorting to the dreaded Mt. Dew diet. Yuck!

Friday, September 30, 2011

Take a peek....

So I received some of my photos today. And they are cute. I expect to do more very soon (wink, wink Krissa - boy stuff next).

So my talented sister-in-law did these cute photos last week with my darling nieces. I am only going to show the swing coat for now, but there will be more on the esty site soon! Enjoy!

If you are in the south central part of WI please check her out at http://www.intenserezultz.com! She is really good and of course since she likes the clothing it shows in the photos as well!

Hope you guys are starting off your weekend right!

Freebie Friday - September 30th, 2011

Good morning everyone! It has really turned into autumn here the last few days. I have broken out the teapot and tea and been dreaming of hot apple cider too!


Monday, September 26, 2011

Freebie Friday Winner

Wow! What a weekend! There were so many people at Oktoberfest and it was really nice to meet so many great people. The other crafters were really nice and I did have a good time this weekend. Lucky for you guys, not very many people signed up though which makes the odds really good!


Saturday, September 24, 2011

Update from Oktoberfest

What a fabulous weekend! We have been having so much fun at Oktoberfest here in New Glarus. I have met so many nice new people!

Freebie Friday Giveaway - Septemeber 23, 2011

Good morning!

I am still working like crazy to get all my things ready for the craft fair that starts tonight! Yippeeeeeee! I have new mitten clips and hopefully a couple of girl's mitten clip and scarf sets. But I still have to spray my booth panel so they look nice and new for tonight, would have finished it yesterday but ran out of paint!


Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Oktoberfest

Good Tuesday morning!

I had a bit of a tough couple of days. What I thought was one heck of a chest cold coming on turned out to be some pulled muscles. OUCH! So I have been trying to relax and not do a whole lot so I can recuperate. Needless to say, this isn't a very good time to be taking the time off...


Saturday, September 17, 2011

Freebie Friday Winner

You guys rock my world! Have I ever told you that? I loved seeing all the great compliments yesterday. THANK YOU!

So who won? Let's see....

Freebie Friday Giveaway - September 16th, 2011

God morning all!

Boy did it turn fall in a hurry! Didn't we just have a 90 degree day here a few days ago! My girls are a little confused why they have to wear pj's with footies suddenly! This type of weather makes me want to stay indoors with a blanket and a big cup of hot chocolate.

Sunday, September 11, 2011

Freebie Friday Giveaway winner! Yay!

Thank you everyone for participating in this week's Freebie Friday! I had a great time at the resale and actually love the fall resales. They seem a lot more laid back than the spring ones. Either way it's done and almost everything is packed up (wow, I'm a lot more organized than before - well and I did sell a lot of things :) ).


Friday, September 9, 2011

Freebie Friday Giveaway - September 9, 2011

Wow! I almost forgot about Freebie Friday! And no one reminded me, that's crazy! :)

So I got a little caught up in my family and trying to finish up all the resale stuff. I have computer work to do and a few more toys to get tagged before I'm done, but I'm close!


Friday, September 2, 2011

Freebie Friday - September 2nd, 2011

It is a beautiful day to stay indoors today. Rainy and storming and I think I will be breaking out the lounge pants today :) It's the perfect day to dress casual and just hang out. I, of course, will be working hard on a lot of orders I have. And gearing up to start getting some of my items in some local boutiques.


Saturday, August 27, 2011

Freebie Friday - August 26th, 2011

Hello!

I am feeling a little ambitious. Well I am a little crazy in fact. This Sunday I am going to participate in this awesome craft show on an apple orchard in central Wisconsin. It is this fabulous 22 acre farm and the owner actually does quilting and they are gorgeous. You can find the info for this great event here. Please come and visit! I would love to see you! Anyways, back to me being crazy. I decided to do it yesterday. I signed up today. I have 23 skirts in my inventory, that's it. What was I thinking :) Well with lots of planning and working hard on getting current orders out I think I'm going to have a lot of stock there. Just don't be surprised if I am a little tired :)


Saturday, August 20, 2011

Freebie Friday Winner - August 20th, 2011

Okay for some weird reason I have tried putting in 2001 instead of 2011 the last two days. Wonder if it means something..... :)


Friday, August 19, 2011

Finally here! The flannel lounge pants are back!


So I was hoping that I would be able to add the flannel lounge pants and all the sizes but I am going to start offering them early. I am able to make the adult sizes, I just haven't finished drafting the patterns :)

So here is what we will be offering this fall for flannel lounge pants:
ABC Baby Girl


Caution

Blue Snowflake

Dotted Daisies

Monsters in Space

Red Tongue Frog

Robot

Sweet Bees


Dainty Ladybugs

Floral Swirls

Frog Hears

I love Mommy/Daddy Blue

I love Mommy/Daddy Pink

If I Wanna Rock

Ladybug Plaid

Large Floral

Monkey Around Stitch

Robots

Choo-Choo
Nordic Buttons

I'm sure there will be more prints, in fact I'm looking at adding some Dr. Suess ones for the holiday season.

Unfortunately I have to raise the price of the lounge pants this season as prices went up pretty dramatically in May. In fact that is one of the reasons I decided not to carry them year round. The prices will now reflect the sizes as well:

Infant sizes:
3-6
6-9
12
18
24

All infant sizes will retail for $10.

Toddler sizes:
2T
3T
4T
5T

All toddler sizes will retail for $12

Boys/Girls sizes:
S (6-8)
M (8-10)
L (12-14)

All boys/girls sizes will retail for $16

Adults sizes:
S
M
L
XL

All adult sizes will retail for $20



For today only (August 19th, 2011) we will give you 25% off your order of flannel lounge pants. We must receive payment today as well. Please e-mail me with your size, fabric choice and paypal address to jsdesignsstudio@yahoo.com and I will send you out an invoice as soon as I possibly can! If there is something specific you are looking for I will see if I can find it and we can work together to make a custom order.

Enjoy shopping!
Jenny



Freebie Friday - Agusut 19th, 2011

Good Freebie Friday!

Well the weather has started getting cooler here, especially at night! I am looking forward to more flannel lounge pants weather, but I better get cracking on more for the girls! I actually have one pair almost done for each of them. I am recycling a set of their flannel receiving blankets that their grandma made them. I thought it would be a great way for them to continue to enjoying them. Their other matching set they use to swaddle their baby dolls so they are getting more use than I thought they would.


Saturday, August 13, 2011

Winner - Freebie Friday August 12

Good morning everyone! Hope the weather is cooperating for everyone since it sure doesn't seem like there is much summer left!


Friday, August 12, 2011

Freebie Friday - August 12th, 2011

Good morning! I have had a bit of a strange one today so far. This morning I woke up early, like 5AM. Unfortunately I wasn't able to do anything because my wonderful hubby and cranky youngest were sleeping downstairs. So I got to spend an hour looking up patterns on my phone :) Then my oldest decided to join me and we snuggled in bed for half an hour together. Gotta love Friday mornings!


Friday, August 5, 2011

Freebie Friday - August 5th, 2011

Good morning everyone! I'm kinda in a rush this morning since the girls are still sleeping and I have a few minutes to myself. I'm patiently waiting for my coffee and the iron to warm up :) I have some fantastic things to finish up today!


Tuesday, August 2, 2011

Terrific Tuesday - August 2, 2011

Good morning everyone!

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone again for bearing with me as I make this company grow. We have made incredible leaps and bounds lately! I am finally feeling a little more comfortable with the balance of work, family and this great new adventure!

I thank all of you for being so supportive and sticking with me.

Have a great day!

Freebie Friday Winner - July 30, 2011

Good morning!

I am up a lot earlier today. Both girls have been up during the night, in fact, my oldest got up at 4AM and we are still up. So figured maybe I better start getting some things done while she snuggles up with her new HUGE barbie (seriously, it's bigger than her! Thanks Uncle Rick and Aunt Kim) and watches a movie. Poor girl isn't feeling well so I've been snuggling with her until she wanted Barbie instead. See how I rate!

Terrific Tuesday - July 26th, 2011

Monday Madness - Christmas in July - July 25th, 2001

Hello everyone!

Freebie Friday Winner

Hello!

Good morning! We are having a very relaxing morning here. We got up and made blueberry muffins. Then we took those and some strawberries and sat on our front porch eating breakfast and watching the rain come in. This is day two of our new little ritual. After breakfast the girls color and run across the porch. It's a wonderful way o start the day out.

Feebie Friday - July 22, 2011

It's scary how fast Fridays have been creeping up on me lately. I have been so busy, in the studio and out of the studio, that my head just doesn't seem to be on straight anymore. :)


Friday, July 15, 2011

Freebie Friday - July 15th, 2011

Wow has it been super busy lately! Last week we celebrated 1000 fans and this week I am planning (and sewing up a storm for) my first craft fair. This seems like it could be a big one. It is a family fest that is in a gated community on a lake. Um, wow! This is a big deal and I am super excited about it but still really nervous too.


Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Terrific Tuesday - June 28th, 2011

This Freebie Friday we are giving away and item again! I love these and I know that you will too!


Saturday, June 18, 2011

Terrific Tuesday - June 14, 2011

Good Tuesday morning! Well at least I hope it will be. We are still experiencing some sleeping problems in our household which means I am not getting a whole lot of sleep. BUT I feel pretty good today and hope you guys have a wonderful day too!

I have my sewing machine back in working order. Did some maintenance on it and figured out that it just doesn't like the project I'm working on. Not a good sign when I have a couple more of the same items to do!

Well I better get back to being a little productive this morning before I go off to work! Hope you have a wonderful day and I will see you again soon!

Thanks!

Terrific Tuesday - June 7th, 2011

Hello!

Sorry I have been missing so much lately. Wow is there a lot to catch up. I've been busy working on all the new orders that have been coming in and trying to layout the new plans for more items. I have lots to put on etsy and here on the blog as well.

This last weekend my husband put in new flooring in our kitchen. Now it isn't anything fancy just some vinyl tiles but we used to have carpet in there! YUCK! Yes, grey carpet in a kitchen, with 2 two-year-olds. Yep, it was fun. My hubby and father-in-law have been working hard to make a few updates and make it look so much nicer! It's painted, the trim was planed and stained to the natural color it should be (used to be a light pink, more YUCK), new fridge, added a little pantry, and of course the floor. I am so excited for this new kitchen. Bad news is that it's been way too hot to even want to use it!

Anyways back to business :) We introduced the new flirt skirt at our auction on facebook. It's a cute little mini and loving it! There will also be a more modest mid-calf length called the School Days Skirt. The Flirt Skirt will debut from 12 months to 5T priced at $11 and 6/6x to size 14 at $15. The School Days Skirt will be priced at $13 for 12 months to 5T and $16 for  size 6/6X to size 14.

There will be lots of color choices and I'm trying to make a catalog of them to make shopping easier. Just ask if you are looking for something in particular.

Okay, I need your input and I can make it worth your while. I am going to a craft fair in July and looking to have something just so cute. I have been admiring this fabric for awhile but just can't decide what to do with it.
So what do you think? Pillowcase dresses? Little skirts? Aprons? Vests? OOOOOOO, I have a reversible vest pattern that I've been meaning to do something with. Oh boy, see my problem? I just can't decide. Let me know what you think and I will give you 50% off your first order of this item!

Okay, well I better get back to spending a little time with my sweet peas. Thank you!

Have a wonderful day!

Freebie Friday - 5/27/11

EDIT - This is now CLOSED

Well Happy Memorial Day Weekend! I love having the long weekend at the beginning of summer. Our town has a great music fest going on and it's always nice to get to visit some friends before the craziness of summer really start to get us going!

I am posting this early because we just hit 500 fans! Yay!

So here's the scoop. Last week we gave away four $10 gift certificates. I thought that was fun so to celebrate this milestone we are going to open up the auction this Saturday (I'm loading more photos tonight and hoping to get a lot of sewing done tomorrow so I can add the final items tomorrow night). And for our Freebie Friday we are going to give away FIVE gift certificates. No not $10 each like last week, we are going to give away a $25 gift certificate, a $20 gift certificate, a $15 gift certificate, a $10 gift certificate and a gift certificate for $5! Same as last week, you may only win once! So there will be five different winners!

And here's how you enter, but you guys probably have this down by now :) If you have any questions about commenting please e-mail me at jennysies@yahoo.com or comment on my facebook page.

1) Last week everyone shared some great ideas on their favorite summer time activities. This week I'd like to know a little more about you. In a dream world how would you dress your kids, LOL! I know this sounds funny, but my little ones just started saying PRINCESS and it's because they would love to be princesses and all I dream about are little "Tangled" dresses and oh my favorite "Sleeping Beauty" and her beautiful ever changing blue/pink gown. So if you could would you dress your little one like princesses and princes or would you punk rock them all the way! :)

2) Follow us on Goggle Connect or Networked Blogs and let us know in a comment below (if you already do, put that in a comment)

So there will be no cheating and the only way to win is to leave your comments below! Entries must be received by midnight Friday and winner will be picked Saturday morning! And to make it fair, the $25 will be picked first and so on and so forth, even though we will post it the opposite way!

Terrific Tuesday

I wanted to take a moment just to say thank you for all your awesome support over the last two months! Wow! We have come so far so fast.

So I have been a little lax in the photo department but it's because I'm perfecting my photography skills (or would rather someone else take the photos for me). Made my first two pairs of summer lounge pants, one for boys and one for girls. Made two adorable new skirts that we will be offering very soon.

We have definitely experienced some growing pains so I am sorry that things are taking longer but I need an assistant and definitely a few more hours in a day! Right now I have a real job too so things are a little hectic but getting much better! Check out the facebook page for some of the new fabrics I'm looking at adding. I'm super excited. Give a shout if there is anything you would like to see!

Thanks again and have a wonderful day!

Terrific Tuesday

Well I missed Sunday Funday because of Easter and all the illness going around our household so I'm very sorry!

So today we are going to work on getting those facebook numbers up so you guys can enjoy free shipping until Mother's Day! Oh, and I'm going to throw in a little bonus! If we get up to 200 likes on Facebook by midnight this Friday, I will giveaway a $15 gift certificate. Here's how you get it. Post this to your facebook page or send out as a message (you can e-mail this too):

Please come over and check out @JS Designs Studios Facebook Page! If you visit, like what you see, press like and leave a comment that I sent you! Both of us could win a $15 gift certificate and be eligible for free shipping until Mother's Day. You can also go over to http://jsdesignsstudio.blogspot.com and comment on her Terrific Tuesday post. Tell all your friends and you can win the gift certificate too!

I will tally all the likes, comments, etc on Saturday and the one with the most referrals wins. For those of you that already have an Affiliate Code you may use that as well. We only have 37 to go by Friday so this should be easy peasy! Oh, and I'm feeling generous today so if you guys are feeling like overachievers I will give out two $15 gift certificates to the top two people who refer our studio if you can get us up to 300 likes!

Oh, and to all of you who have won something or put in orders I am working hard on them this week. Last week really messed up my whole process! They should all be out by Friday if not sooner!

Terrific Tuesday

Today has not been the most terrific of Tuesdays but I am so glad that I have all you great people checking in still! And welcome to all our new friends! Things are usually a lot more upbeat I promise!

I have had a sick little one for the last couple days and am feeling the guilty mommy syndrome. You know the one where you think you have to be there for every second when something is going on? Well this week I can't and it's been a little heartbreaking. Daddy is staying home with the girls tomorrow and I will be home with them Thursday so I apologize for any delayed e-mails or orders at this point. I am still sewing, it's just taking a bit longer than usual!

I have promised pictures, and they are coming, just not quite here yet. I am almost done with 2 urban hoodies and have a bunch more cut out for orders. So they are coming, I promise!

Well better run, I have some time to sew so I better take advantage of it!

Sunday Funday

Hello all!

I have had a crazy week last week followed by a crazier weekend so we will not be having Sunday Funday this week. I promise I will have something good for next week but right now I need to spend a little extra time with my family today.

Remember that today is the last day to go over to Whatever DeeDee Wants and enter to win a $50 gift certificate!

Technical difficulties will be fixed in the next two days. More layout changes ahead I'm sure :)

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Jenny

Thursday, April 14, 2011

Thank you!

I just wanted to take a few minutes this morning to just say thank you for stopping in and becoming a follower or "like"ing me on facebook! You have made my week!

This week is crazy but I am getting sewing done so there will be lots of new pictures next week (sorry I have to survive this resale first). I have the most adorable new pattern and I'm super excited to get to make it!

And to all of you new followers we do have an Affiliate Program to help you get free stuff. After all who doesn't love free stuff! You can see the original post about it here.

And for those of you with questions on how to order please e-mail me at jennysies@yahoo.com so I can help you! All of my items are custom made since there are so many options. The pictures are just a starting ground.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Terrific Tuesday - 4/12/11

I have been so busy here and the weather has been so nice I don't even have anything new to show you or share! LOL!

Many of you know that I have twin girls and being a mommy of multiples I joined the group, Madison Area Mothers of Multiples. This Saturday we have our Spring and Summer Resale and I'm busy prepping for that! Cothes are flying everywhere and boxes of stuff are getting labeled and ready to clear out! It's always such a big progress since sometimes it's hard to see how big they are getting. Two years old is hardly the tip of the iceberg but man do I feel like the time is flying!

Okay, back to more important things....I am holding a giveaway on Whatever DeeDee Wants for a $50 gift certificate. The contest ends on Sunday so make sure to go over there and show Dianna some love! She has an awesome blog and I love getting her posts by e-mail every day!

I also have been sewing away since I have the pattern and license for the Urban Hoodie. Orders are flying in and I'm trying to finish them as fast as I can. They are going to be so adorable! I love them already. Someone offered to help me with getting patterns ready to make the Girly Cardigan too! Oh boy! More adorable goodness coming! So watch for those, they will be delightful!

Hope you guys have a great day!

Sunday Funday - 4/3/11 CLOSED

EDIT - This is now closed!

Well I have been thinking about all of the wonderful people that helped me out last Sunday and was trying hard to come up with something to match the enthusiasm. The lounge pants are a favorite but I'd really like to help you out a little more get something really exciting. On my to do list is The Catie Dress and The Urban Hoodie. I have the material for the Urban Hoodie so it should be done this week! Sorry this is taking so long, we have had quite a few unexpected things happening this week and it threw me a little off track!

So for our Sunday Funday event, and of course I think it needs to continue on with out Affiliate Program so here it goes!  We will give the Urban Hoodie at the amazing price of $12, looks like it should retail about $24, to the person who can share the love the most. It will be in a grey sweatshirt fleece, black knit lining and black buttons. And we are going to give you some time on this one as it's a little more involved. Winner will be announced Wednesday!

Here's how it's going to work, we will have a points system, the person with the most points wins.
You will get one point if you have joined our Affiliate Program. Or if you join over the next couple days.
You will get one point if you have ordered from JS Designs Studio in the past.
You will get 3 points if you have had someone that has ordered from JS Designs Studio but not hit the $25 for you to get the $5 credit. This will count for each referral.
You will get 5 points for every order I receive over $25 from now until Tuesday at Midnight that has your code on it! Now remember this also qualifies you to get $5 in credit to spend at our etsy shop and your lucky shopper will get 5% off as well.

So that's how you will win! Let me know if you have any questions in the meantime and I look forward to seeing who gets this great deal on Wednesday.

Besides peeking to see who wins, make sure you come back on Wednesday and join our friends at Making the World Cuter to see us featured there!

Terrific Tuesday - Do Over :)

Okay, I'm a little ashamed of my last post that I did this morning! I am really in a good spot right now just a little overwhelmed by dealing with so many things out of my control. If you don't already know I'm a little bit of a control freak and I don't like it when I don't know what's going on or when I can't get everything done that I say I want to have done. Like my wonderful hubby says, I'm a bit of an overachiever. I don't go just half way in. Problem with that is I get a little crazy every once in awhile! :)

Enough said! I am moving on to bigger and better things. Today I got a lot of time to work on my orders. I have some very special satin Easter dresses that I'm making and I have one very close to being done and the other is about 2/3 the way done. I am loving these dresses! It's the Pretty Little Dress in Yellow Satin with Chocolate Brown sash and bow and the same dress in Pink Satin with the Chocolate Brown sash and bow! They are so adorable. It's making me rethink the whole practical cotton print dress for the girls! Oh well!
I also got a chance to go to the fabric store and I purchased some fabrics for orders as well as some Khaki twill to make another pair of The Chase Pants! Here's a great picture if you haven't seen them already, oh that's right, I didn't get them on the blog cause it was not cooperating, well let's try it now:

Love them!

I also have the fleece for the Urban Hoodie to try out too so I am hoping to get that done this week, but who am I kidding. It's going to be next week! LOL!

In other news, mark your calendars to see my lovely shop hosting a giveaway on Making the World Cuter next Wednesday April 6th and on Whatever DeeDee Wants, She's Gonna Get it.... on April 11th! These are bigger giveaways than I have done here so make sure to check them out!

Happy Tuesday everyone and I hope that you have a great night! Be back again on Freebie Friday! Maybe sooner, we'll see.....

Jenny :)

Terrific Tuesday

Okay, I hate to be a negative Nancy but right now about the best thing about it being Tuesday is that it isn't Monday anymore! LOL! Okay, I am actually happy how things are turning out and you guys make my day each and every day. All the messages and posts on my Facebook page make me realize how lucky I am to have my friends around.

So obviously I haven't got the blogger picture thing fixed but I do have all the items up on Etsy that I have made so far. The Catie Dress and the Urban Hoodie should be done by the end of this weekend and I'm looking to add another pattern or two in the very near future.

So as much as I love you guys, this morning I have two very happy, very talkative girls that I think I need to go snuggle!

Hope you have a wonderful day!
Jenny :)

Sunday Funday - CLOSED

EDIT - This giveaway is now closed!

Okay, you will have to excuse me....I'm a litttle sleepy. I had my youngest decide that 3:20AM was a perfectly natural time to get up in the morning. Good thing we are going for a very long car ride today. Both mommy and babe will be napping! :)

So I have been racking my brain on what to do on this Sunday Funday. I have been busy getting fabric selections ready and getting new pictures and items on my Etsy Shop and of course, right here. Still hadn't come up with something until a few minutes ago...

Technical Difficulties

Boy oh boy! Do I wish I would have paid better attention in all those computer programming classes I took. Although things have probably changed in the 12 years since I took them.

Unfortunately anyone who hit the like button on the side bar is not linked up on facebook because I cannot understand the programming enough! I thought I had it but apparently not! So I can see the first few, but all others, who ever you wonderful people are, are lost in cyberspace!

If you could go to facebook and like me on there I would really appreciate it, then I can make sure that you receive updates and new product information as soon as possible!

Thanks!
