Last but no least – Just a heads up on June 15th there will no longer be a Http://www.jennshurkus.typepad.com I know a lot of people liked the galleries I had set up there. Some things I plan on transferring over to here, but some I will not (i.e. my a muse card gallery) so be sure to save any ideas you want to scrap lift to your computer.
Hope you are enjoying this long weekend! I plan to spend some time in my studio today, and I can’t wait!!
I *totally* get the winter blues! I can’t complain too much about this winter, as the weather has been unusually mild. I still miss the hot temps, and sun, and beach days…. i live for those beach days! It’s no secret that my have color is blue.. but mostly teals, so when i saw that the Moxie Fab challenge was more of a navy… i had a bit of trouble. I love how my card turned out. A little bit of My Minds Eye papers and embellishments, Hero Arts stamp and Prussian blue Chalk ink… It was super quick to pull together, and thats ok with me since I’ve been super busy kitting for Crop on the Cape, designing my next round of card classes AND getting some card kits up in my etsy shop (those were *wicked* time consuming… but feels good to get it done)
Well… enough chatter here is what I came up with for the Cure for the Winter Blue challenge over at Moxie Fab (p.s. LOVE their new blog banner!! now there are my colors!!)
AND I just added to my etsy shop some fabulous card kits!! These were left over from a class i taught.
Each kit includes:
- 6×6 Basic Grey paper pad “Life is a Party”
- Supplies to create 6 birthday cards (everything is pre-cut, pre-stamped, pre-punched and ready to assemble)
- A PDF of instructions emailed to you
FREE SHIPPING: Local peeps… you DONOT have to pay for shipping if you want something from my etsy shop!! If i’m going to see you at a class, or crop on the cape, or if you live locally… make your purchase on etsy and I will refund you your shipping fees!!
I have 12 packed full medium sized priority boxes… filled with pattern papers and embellishments- needing a good home.
I needed to clean out my crafty space.. it was just getting out of control! These boxes have at LEAST 100 pattern papers and 15 embellishments- thats over an $85 value! I am selling them for only $20!
I also have some Basic Grey ornament kits for sale as well. Pop on over to my etsy shop and get these deals while there are some left
(the picture below is just an example of one of the boxes contents, they are all different, a grab bag of sorts!)

Before I started my post I wanted to let you know I have an email subscribe through feed burner to the right, so submit your email address and you will get an email notification when I update my blog.
I have participated in the One Little Word journey for the past few years.. last year was possibilities, the year before that was appreciate….. Most of you know on some level, last year was not an easy year for me. I came out standing, but barely. So honestly, my heart just hasn’t been into most things it is normally. It has taken a TON of effort to get back in my studio creating again, i think i burnt myself out a little bit with my hectic fall. I’m looking towards 2012 with a positive outlook. I try to remind myself that although 2011 was a tough one, it could’ve been a lot worse. I have started jotting down my daily thoughts in my “one line a day” book again- this is a good place for me to post what I am grateful for, or even to jot down my frustrations.
I chose “brave” for my word this year. Ali Edwards had posted on twitter late December, asking us if we had in mind what our word was going to be. I replied that after having the word “possibilities” last year, I’m afraid to come up with a word for 2012. Ali responded that maybe my word should be “brave” then. I took that word and, lived with it for a few days… I thought about it, slept with it.. lived with it. It seemed to fit. I needed to remind myself that whatever life throws at me, i am brave enough to deal…
I plan on following my prompts from Ali’s class, that I collected last year.. i really hope to embrace this word this year- and i’m starting to get excited about what it may bring to me :)
To honor my One Little Word, and Yours- I have added in my easy shop the option to get your One Little Word done on a custom canvas by lil ol me!! Here are some examples, but be sure to hop on over to my shop to see more details!
I am so excited to have finally launched my Etsy shop!! This is something I have had on my To-Do list since this summer, but in all reality it was most likely in the back of my mind for a few years now.
I have listed a bunch of my canvases. I even uploaded some without words, you can tell me what you would like on them!
Let me know what you think, and I hope you will pass the word on for me!!
Almost 12 years ago I purchased shurkus.com as a grad gift to myself… I’ve actively used it for my email address, but thats about it. Life happened, there never seemed time to build my own page- and even though i have been blogging since 2005, it was just easier to use typepad.com. Well folks… that is all changing! With my new position at Providence College.. one of my “tasks” is to learn wordpress, which in return has helped bring shurkus.com alive! I am SO excited to finally be using my little space on the net. Excited to have gotten the site this far, but I can promise you… more is to come! So… hold on, sit back… and enjoy, shurkus.com (would love to hear what you think :) )
I have updated my class page- you can see it in the tab above. I have some fun card classes coming up, and hop to see some of my “peeps” soon!!
I have spent the last few long weekends getting a lot done in my studio space. I love working in there, it’s just finding the motivation and time to get in there. I am also happy to announce I finally have opened my etsy shop! I have quite a few completed canvases posted, and some waiting for your unique quote. I also take custom orders – you get to choose the size, colors, and quote… just contact me. I hope you will spread the word on my fun new shop :)
More creative posts coming soon, I have a TON to share… i’m so excited!!!
Note: be sure to update your bookmarks, and blog readers, this is where my blog is going to live from now on!!
