Comment and you might win on the 12th day!

Carol, here, Susan Lenart Kazmer’s social media gal.

It’s 12th Day of Christmas and no drummers. Don’t get me wrong, I like drummers. They keep the beat. Ah, but I digress… you want to know what and how you can win mixed media elements plus this necklace:

Industrial Chic

Industrial Chic

But wait!

Hear the drum roll. It is easier to imagine if you close your eyes– but not for too long because you must comment on this blog… we are going to have a second winner today–the baker got involved. Catering. He had to come in and feed the milking maids, the leaping lords, the dancing ladies, and the true lovers.

I have filled a second package to bursting with discontinued Industrial Chic.

I will use my random number generator and choose a winner for the necklace and then, I will choose a winner for the second package using the comments below (plus I have a list of people who entered in the past 11 days, so if you are one, you still have a chance to win).

It is so much fun to get emails from winners telling me how excited they are.

Share, on this blog, what age you were when you knew you had to do something creative.

You have until Monday when I get back from Seaside Soiree.

You can find new Industrial Chic exclusively at Michaels, but Susan is running a special the first part of December in the ICE Resin store. You can find out more about it tomorrow, here.

  • I absolutely love the industrial chic charms and have always admired them at the store but walk away feeling less than confident in my ability to create a masterpiece. Yesterday I dove in a grabbed a bag full of charms and proudly headed home with my head spinning with ideas. This year everyone is getting at least one handmade gift from me and for the girls it will incorporate industrial chic charms. A journal for my sister, a necklace for my niece, a bookmark for my mom, and plenty of jewelry for my daughter…
    Thank you for the inspiration and helping me make a handmade Christmas that has a bit of me incorporated into everything I give.

  • It wasn’t until I was in my early 20s and moved away from family and friends. Creative endeavors kept me occupied!

  • I remember being in the Third grade which made me about 8 years old. Well, we had to do a science project of the solar system. I remember being so nervous because I knew I wasn’t going to get much help from home. I was raised by a single mom and she worked two jobs, so I was on my own. So, I got a box, just a regular box and I painted the inside black. Then I took some paper and drew stars and colored them yellow. Then I cut them out and glued the to the inside of the box. Then I had to make the planets, so what I did was I used cut up pieces of paper and put the paper in flour and water and made little balls of paper machete. After the paper machete dried I painted them different colors. Then I used sting to hang the planets up under the inside of the box. I remember being so proud of myself. By the time my mom came home from work I was in bed and my project was on the table, so she got to see it before I took it to school. When I took it to school the teacher loved it and I got an A+. That is one of my fondest memories of my first creative moments.

  • I was about 8…. I swear I lived at the local craft store (eventually got a job there when I was older ;) ). I would always save up my allowance for new projects.

  • I remember being about 4 year old and my mom and I used to make things for Christmas. I remember making Christmas ornaments out of play dough. We would use Christmas cookie cutters and cut out shapes and let them dry over night and the next day we would hang them on the tree. Oh and my mom and I made our own play dough. How I miss being a kid again. But, the good thing is I get to do everything I did with my mom with my kids. Merry Christmas everyone.

  • Our Michael’s doesn’t have any more Industrial Chic because I bought it all. LOL. I love Susan’s jewelry pieces they are so fun and interesting. Pick me, Pick me. Tee hee hee.

  • Hi there,
    Firstly I just want to say how much I covet all the lovely Industrial Chic bits & pieces I see when I go to Michaels, they appeal to my love of recycled art. I was 5 years old when I knew for sure that creativity was always going to be a big part of my life. While in kindergarten class I drew a picture of my father peeing on the front lawn because he was so angry that my mother asked him for a date night. Haha, I know it doesn’t make sense and I admit a little messed up but I look back on it and think it’s hilarious and it always reminds me that with a twisted sense of imagination like that how could I NOT create art? Art is and always will be my greatest passion. :)

  • 8 years old, my mom said I had too much energy and signed me up for art classes, the rest is history

  • My daddy used to bring me home neked troll dolls when they first came out on the market in the late 50′s early 60′s…, and I guess I was a little embarrassed having a neked doll with such short legs.. so I had to make them clothes.. out of felt and um… my mother’s jewelry! Lest we not tell you that I did get in a tad bit of trouble.. But.. they sure were cute! Thank you for the opportunity to play… :)

  • It’s taken me 41 years to let my creative side out…one I didn’t really know I had and definitely didn’t have the courage to try. But one year ago I began smashbooking, scrapbooking, making mini albums, etc. and I can’t stop! Although my experience is raw & new and it takes me forever to finsih a project…I’m loving every minute of it. I love using Industrial Chic to add that extra special bling to my projects. Turning the ordinary everyday item into beautiful works of art no matter how big or small is such an amazing feeling. I would love to learn how to make Industrial Chic products, but right now I’m enjoying buying them from Michaels already assembled and mind-blowing! One of these days, my hubby is going to get whiplash from all the head shaking he does at me when I come home with my Michaels purchases. :) But secretly, he’s amazed at the gifts I’m creating. Happy Holidays!

  • Love your art and this blog

  • As a young kid I was always extremely creative, I always dreamt of being a famous actress and would create my own scenes all the time, but when it came to fine arts and crafts my skills were lacking severely. I always worked so hard in art class and was always the last kid to finish the project and it always turned out awful. It wasn’t until I was about 14 years old when I started drawing and could actually draw very well. My mom always pushed me to take art classes and because of that I never wanted to, not until I was older and a bit wiser. After 2 years of trying to figure out what I would study at a community college I finally landed on fine arts and decided to refine my skills and learn new mediums. I received my associates of fine arts and am a year away from getting my bachelors of arts and plan on getting a masters in art therapy. Last Christmas I had asked for some jewelry making supplies to see if I enjoyed it and if I was any good at creating my own jewelry, because I absolutely love jewelry. Well I received the gift I desired and absolutely love this craft and industrial chic is my favorite brand to buy!

  • Love industrial chic and everything ice resin! Thanks for the opportunity!!!

  • 55 and finding new life! From the tender years of teens when I took an old notebook, a sandwich, a pencil and rode my horse into the mountains alone to a spot by a mountain creek, with flat rocks and clean water. I would sit and write poetry, collect bits and pieces of nature to add to my old notebook. I used the bits to make jewelry and art…..I have loved art and creating all my life, especially with old and up cycled things, found things. There is such beauty everywhere. I absolutely love your products. So much inspiration…especially in these days of life after luxuries.

  • I just bought my first charms the other day! I am super in love!!!

  • I can honestly say I have been creating since the day my mama popped me out :P My jewelry buisness really kicked off when I about 22 yrs old , In one week my apt in Boston got robbed and I lost two jobs (that’s when i busted out the trench coat filled with jewelry @bars :) ) ~ Needless to say everything happens for a reason and here I am now creating by night and selling what I luv by day~

  • Forget to tell you my age — 57 — and I’ve always wanted to be creative and it didn’t hurt having a Mom that was an Art instructer.

  • Birth….Ok, maybe not that soon, but as long as I can remember.

  • I love, love industrial chic. I create so many things at home using little charms, beads, etc. It makes me happy when I can make things for my family and friends.
