    I have been designing jewelry since a young child and it is my passion. I am thankful for the gift I’ve been given and it brings me joy to create a beautiful work that makes someone feel special. I never repeat a design so when someone wears one of my creations, it is just for them and it makes them smile to know this. When I am creating jewelry, it brings me peace. It calms me. It inspires me. It is a part of me and always will be. I am a very lucky girl that I’ve found this creative outlet within me. Thanks for posting this give away and I am on your blog feed and liked you on Facebook. You guys come up with some lovely designs :-).

  2. Susan Shuraky says:

    My profession tends to drain me during business hours. I am grateful for the time I spend in the creative process outside of work. Although my creations please me and my customers, it is
    sometimes just enough to browse through Nunn Design’s and others catalogs to give me peace in the moment, and inspiration for the future.

  3. Elissa says:

    I’ve been making something as long as I can remember. Creativity was no doubt the fuel of life for me. I did go to art school, but it was too difficult to survive as an artist right after school. One thing lead to another and I fix computers for living now. but because of the creativity I’ve nurtured, I can think outside the box. I don’t have to follow rules strictly. Which comes in very handy even with Technology. I can tackle problems with an angle, a new view, a radical yet practical ideas! it has helped me in many many ways.
    And at the end of the day, I come back to my studio aka my living room to forget all the hassle of the day and escape to the land of creation. I get the best of both world.

  4. Melissa says:

    Ever since I was young I love doing anything artistic. When I started making jewelry I just thought yay a fun new project to do. Who would know it would turn into a business. I am so grateful for the people who supported me especially my husband who said I could quit my job to pursue my dream at a jewelry designer.

  5. Erin Prais-Hintz says:

    I believe that we are all called to be creative beings, to bring light and energy to the world, to make something out of nothing to foil those that would seek to destroy. It pains me when someone compares their {seeming lack of} creativity to mine. We are not called to be creative in the same way. We have been given the gift of creativity and need to unlock that within, seek out the way that we shine light to the world and share it. That last part is key. We are called to be creative beings, but it is not enough to just be creative, you have to put that unique creativity out into the world, whether you make paint or draw or cook or raise wonderful children or sing or dance or make people feel welcome or even design jewelry. The world is waiting for the creativity that you have to offer!
    Enjoy the day!
    Erin

  6. Michelle says:

    Because I’m not a good communicator verbally/vocally, I’m grateful for creativity, as with the written word, because it helps me to express what I’m not able to say otherwise.
    I esp. love making jewelry with gemstone beads, because it allows me to glimpse at Creation up close. The colors and patterns in natural semi-precious gemstones is like nothing else in Creation. Showcasing the stones, for example like your designer did in the leather cuff with turquoise stones in black crystal clay, or even in a simple strung gemstone bead bracelet allows the wearer to enjoy just a little piece of Creation up close.

  7. Caroline G. says:

    I am grateful to have creativity in my life because it is an outlet for me to escape the stresses of everyday and create wonderful projects. 🙂

  8. Merry Jo Thompson says:

    I am often asked how did I come up with a particular design. When you repurpose items in your designs inspiration is around you daily. There is no greater thrill than to be handed something and asked “can you do anything with this?” And no greater sense of pride to realize that family, friends and friends yet to be, place me in that category – that I can create something with a piece of (dare I say) junk! I am ever so grateful that they believe in my talent! Thank you Nunn Design for offering components that complete those treasures!

  9. Juli Geldmacher says:

    I create to relive the stress of my life and I have used it to create a stronger bond with my daughter. My jobs have been very stressful (I.e. Government, medical office, and currently accounting). When I would get home from work, and my daughter from school, we would do our chores/homework and then after we had dinner, we go up to “the craft room” and we would make. It didn’t matter what, as long as we were being creative. She would take over the guest bed and I would sit at the desk, we would put a movie on or listen to music and we would make things. Sometimes I’d sew or make a few cards, but mostly I made jewelry. She would collage, or draw mainly, but she’d try her had at the jewelry too. When I started selling my pieces at craft fairs she always wanted to come and help out. After awhile she even made some jewelry to sell herself. In this age of electronic devices I have been very glad that I have been able to share creative time with my daughter, instead of us each caught up in our own little worlds of Facebook, and snapchat, etc.

  10. Julene Hansen says:

    I am grateful for the release creativity gives me. Sometimes it feels great to throw rules out and just make something!

  11. Pattiparker731@yahoo.com says:

    I was once asked “What is my art?” My reply- Life. I am grateful for my creativity because it allows me to view everyday as unique. From the colors in the sunrise to the flowers in the garden, I am constantly inspired to create and reference what I experience each day. I have used my creativity to employ myself in various artistic endeavors from sign painting to photography and jewelry design. My way of doing things is to try different approaches until I find what works, curiosity leading to some wonderful ideas. I use my creativity often, and am thankful I am able to access it.

  12. Ann Schroeder says:

    I’m a pretty shy person, but I’ve always loved beads and jewelry. I used to be leery of social media. I only began reading blogs a few years ago. Then after making something for an online challenge and having it featured on the blog, I decided to start my own blog for reveals. Having this creative outlet that lets me share my passion for beads and jewelry has been so much fun. I am grateful for it every day because it continues to provide me a reason to challenge my creativity and adds a lot of joy to my life.

  13. Kelly Croasmun says:

    As a survivor of not one but two sexual assaults, creativity allows me an outlet of peace for which I will be eternally grateful. When I am creating, I am happy. I am not focusing on the horrors I have experienced. My thoughts are calm and I am at peace with myself. There is no greater feeling and that is why I love creativity.

  14. Carole Carlson says:

    Creative play is a great stress-reliever. I’m fortunate that I’ve been able to share my love of art and craft with my daughter – in fact, we have a play date scheduled for her Christmas break. And now my son is getting in on the act; I’m setting aside a section of my workshop just for him.

  15. Cheryl Maxey says:

    I love pushing myself to newer heights when making jewelry…I started making jewelry about 16 yrs. ago…..It got me through my Breast Cancer……and I can say that it helped me Emotionally and Mentally……Therapy…that’s what I get from making jewelry….still to this day…..exploring new mediums is what I love…

  16. Sabrina Koebel says:

    Creativity has truly been a blessing in my life. It has allowed me to quit my job and pursue my art full-time while providing an income. I am also thankful that I have been able to share my creative passion with my children and to see their individual creativity grow to provide them an outlet to express themselves and see that they can earn their own income by doing what they love.

  17. Sonia Bailey says:

    I started making jewelry about 10 years ago and this year I found Nunn Designs. I always knew I had a creative instinct but after a severe bout of depression and some counseling , it was suggested to do something each day just for me and I chose creativity to relax me. I made a pair of earrings the first time, nothing great but after that the ideas just flowed.
    I get so intense when I am creating designs and excited when someone purchases my jewelry, which in turn helps subside the turmoil that goes on inside.
    I check on Nunn Design website most days to gain inspiration and check out the new products, creativity is my form of relaxation which in turn keeps depression at bay. Thank you !

  18. Leilani says:

    Without creativity in my life, I think I would lose my sanity! It gives me a break from my hectic, stressful work, and gives my a way to be in the now.

  19. Kathy Garrison says:

    Creativity is an important part of my life. I use it not only to express myself, but also as a way to think of others. I love making handmade gifts and the idea of thinking of someone special while creating something for him/her is always a good way to spend the day.

  20. Marcy Criner says:

    I’m so happy to be able to express myself and share my creative ideas with others. I get such joy out of seeing all the great designs on Nunn Designs!

    I liked to FB, Tweeted and get your emails.

  21. Linda Stiles Smith says:

    Creativity for me is a way of life. There isn’t anything that I haven’t tired to apply some creative style to! My family cringes when I start a project because they know that it will become a new palate that won’t satisfy me until I have worked and reworked it creatively! But more than making something creative out of my materials, the creative way of life has brought me so many new and wonderful friends! Many cross my path because they are searching for some instruction, or input into their desire to produce something creative. The surprise is that in the process we become not just creative partners, but friends forever in the creative life. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my passion with them.

  22. Ami Yazaki says:

    There was a time in my life that i had become depressed and stressed due to work. Crafting was the one thing that brought me out of the funk. I am grateful for the opportunity to craft, helping my family with special occasions and giving me an outlet to reduce the stress in my life.

  23. Heather Martin says:

    How are you grateful that you have creativity in your life?

    I am grateful for having creativity in my life for several reasons. The first one has been very challenging for me this year alone but creativity has been an actual life saver for me. It has been there for me when I felt that no one and nothing else were at the time. It has been grateful for me to have my creativity while dealing with the grief and pain of losing one of the most important people in my life this year, my grandpa.
    Being creative is not always an easy task even if you are already a creative person. When life derails you and you think you’re done, think again.
    Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.

  24. Renee Howe says:

    There is a connection between people when you share similar creative outlets. For me, I learned so much from my mom when I was a child. Now, having craft time with my daughters allows us to stay creative and connected. Those hours spent with them is what I am most grateful for.

  25. Virginia says:

    Nunn Design products were the inspiration for me to begin designing jewelry 6 yrs ago. I never get tired of using my imagination to explore all the design choices and create new and exciting pieces using the unique and beautifully made components. Thank you for giving me the resources to be the artist I have become.

  26. Lizzie Renville says:

    I was raised by a Hippee and a Beatnik, both extremely creative and talented. We were raised green and were creative with our resources for financial and environmental reasons. Making art projects was a big part of my childhood. As a busy adult I found creativity to be a salve for life’s rough spots, like comfort food from my childhood. As a mother of two boys with anxiety and ADHD, taking time to be creative was crucial, my me time. I would unplug my Mommy self and let my creative side soar. I’ve always made green art, repurposing and recycling like my parents did. The thrill of making something beautiful from something headed for the landfill never gets old. For me, upcycling and creativity go hand in hand. I am grateful for the opportunity to be creative in my daily life. Nunn Design findings provide a solid base for my jewelry and lend strength and durability when paired with various upcycled components. I feel very blessed to be able to express myself creativly and be authentic every day.

  27. Karen says:

    Creativity is life, whether expressed through the arts, work, parenting, friendships, gifts, …
    My jewelry allows me to express creativity in a way that fulfills me and allows me to make others happy. How great is that? I am so grateful to have found this outlet.
    Thank you for great products, tutorials, and designs.

  28. Larissa Heskett says:

    I have been Creative for as LONG as I can Remember!! I won several Coloring Contests when I was a Child and I think that fed my Soul!! Then I started 4-H at 8 yr. old and being Judged and making it to the State Fair were my Goals each Year!! Then I started making Projects for Gifts and realizing that I could REALLY make people HAPPY and Bring JOY to them in the form of ART and something that I had Hand Made was just an AMAZING Feeling!! I WANTED MORE of that!! When I became sick at 10 ART Became a SAVING GRACE!! It was something that MADE me HAPPY and let me FORGET for alittle bit that I was sick!! I NEEDED it to HELP KEEP me HAPPY and POSITIVE!! So over the years I have been Creative in LOTS of ways and have NEEDED it just as much as I have ENJOYED it!! I have learned and tried several different Mediums!! I LOVE SO MANY of them and the AMAZING Communities of people I have met along the way have only ADDED to my LOVE for being Creative!! I think EVERYONE is CREATIVE in their own way and that is just another thing that makes ART AMAZING!! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing and for the chance to WIN!! Have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!! =)

    I am grateful for my family. I no longer have my parents and so often the death of your parents causes your siblings to grow apart but I am so lucky to have a core family who love and treasure one another. Though we have differing political views and disagree on many things we still respect one another and have fun when we get together…

  30. Mandi Grooms says:

    If i wasnt able to be creative i would go crazy. After a hard day my happy place to calm myself is my bedroom creating different pices of jewlery, wall art or just coloring. Having this centers me, helps me relax and just forget my worries. I get to escape and sometimes i couldn’t ask for anything more
