About Me

I sew toys, dolls, simple bags, pretty much anything I can figure out how to sew (except clothing--haven't moved on to that. . .yet!).

I don't have an etsy store or actively sell things I make but I do some commission sewing (not clothing).

I try to sew and donate the items to charity so they don't clutter up my house. I'm currently sewing for the Fluff Project (stuffed toys for children in foster care)

I also make oil paintings and do other crafty stuff (like re-purposing altoid tins into cutesy stuff and embroidery).

Happily childfree.

I share my household with my spouse and two crazy cats, Eugene and Murry.


Fabric and sewing stuff.

Free patterns and tutorials (I have a binder full of them).

kawaii and cutesy stuff like that (especially cute food)

Shopkins (just discovered them and love them)

amigurumi (but not so much Hello Kitty)

Whimsical Fuquerie (off beat and odd ball stuff)

Crochet and knit items (since I can't do either!)--but not supplies so much


Candy: I love weird "foreign" candy. Love chocolate (milk and dark). Cookies are good too.

Animals and nature. Especially cats

Bike riding


Edward Gorey drawings

Word search puzzles and word fill ins (but not crosswords)

Aliens and odd stuff like that (loch ness monster, big foot).

Teesha Moore style patches.

Art dolls (and doll supplies)

Dotee dolls

Handmade stuffies/plush


I'm not religious, so very religious things aren't my bag.

I'm also not into scrapbooking (though I do play around with using paper to re-do altoid tins).

Perfume/makeup--I'm sensitive to those things.

Disney princesses and mickey mouse. I don't dislike all Disney, but the princesses and mickey/minnie aren't my bag (I like the animal based movies, like 101 Dalmatians)

Candy: No coconut, raisins, or walnuts. Also no hazelnuts (I do like them but I'm mildly allergic so it's best not to have them around).

Fake flowers


Hair accessories


NOTE: When it comes to fabrics, I'm ok with receiving a bit of even the things I don't really like. So one piece of "disney princesses" isn't going to upset me (and I'll probably use a bit of it and/or pass it along to someone else).

Color preferences

Color/fabric preferences:

It's easiest if I list the things I really don't like so much (since I like pretty much all colors).

Not a fan of:

--"baby" shades like pastel pinks/blues

--navy blue

--hunter green

--Batiks (I just don't like them so much)

--camoflauge color patterns

--burberry print (plaid ok, just not burberry)

NOTE: When it comes to fabrics, I'm ok with receiving a bit of colors I'm not a fan of. One piece of it I'll probably use (or just pass along) but I just prefer not to get a whole package full of the things I don't care for.

Likes: t.v./pop culture

T.V. likes:

--animation ("Bob's Burgers", "American Dad", "King of the Hill", "Boondocks", classic "The Simpsons", and classics like old school Tom and Jerry and Tex Avery cartoons--love those!)

--PBS programs like "Nature" and "Independent Lense"

--HBO series ("Carnivale", "The Sopranos", "Six Feet Under", etc)

--off beat comedy ("Raising Hope", "My Name is Earl", "The Middle", "Nurse Jackie", etc)

Movie likes:

--John Waters' films.

--gangster themed films ("Casino", "Godfather", etc)

--off beat/dark comedies ("In Bruge", "Slums of Beverly Hills", "Ghostbusters"--I adore Ghostbusters but HATE Ghostbusters II)

Guilty pleasure (movie/t.v.):

--"America's Next Top Model"

--serial killer themed movies (I'll even watch the really crappy ones)

--infomercials (I love watching diet/exercise ones, I don't buy the junk I just love watching them)

--memoirs (especially memoirs about addiction or escaping from a restrictive religion or humor memoirs--but not celebrity memoirs)

Swap Stuff


--I like to combine shipping whenever possible. I will always message a recipient before doing so and include notes in a package saying what swaps items are for.

--I like to plan ahead so I can send as quickly as possible (for less labor intensive swaps, like fabric swaps).

--I rate as I open packages (and I open immediately upon receipt).

--There really isn't any rhyme/reason to why I give hearts and I'm never trying to get hearts. So if I send extras it's because I felt you would like them, not because I'm "heart farming".

When hosting:

--I will angel any swap I host. But must rate your original partner '1' first.

--I am always open to private swaps, PM me if you are interested.

Comment: Such an awesome mini quilt! I love how you included Little King Trashmouth and his court on the quilt. Lol. It truly is a work of art. Now I just need to make room on my wall to display it. Thanks for a wonderful swap.

Comment: Oh My God!!!! Jen you so completely went over the top on this swap!!! I absolutely LOVE and ADORE the Sweet Gang.The names and background story are fantastic, and the little name tags are so cute! I shouldn't have a favorite since they're all so wonderful, but I think Herbert (Hurderp) with his little embroidered tooth has stolen piece of my heart. The whole gang will be visiting my desk at work next week where I know they'll all be oohed over. Thank you so much for an absolutely amazing swap!

Comment: Thank you so much for the cute mug rug. I really like the fabric you used and including the two squares was a pleasant surprise. Now I want to go fabric shopping for Christmas prints!! I was doing so well, trying to use up what I have...but there is always room for more fabric! Merry Christmas!
Comment: I adore my oyster and crowned pearl. Her little Christmas lights (which I am horrible at stringing) are too cute. I'm always thrilled with any swap you send me and this was no exception. Thank you so much! Oh and the UFO Christmas card was too cool!
Comment: Love FQ's the red one is so different and the blue one is my favorite color !
Comment: Perfect color selections for me - neither is an "eh" in my book! ;) If anything, I like the magenta best if you must know!

Comment: Jenny.....I am so sorry for the late rating....I thought I had rated when I got the patches. They are lovely and of course they are the perfect color! :-))
Comment: WOW, this is absolutely amazing Jenny! I love the Sadness embroidery you did for me. You must have the patience of a saint for all those french knots! Thank you so much!
