To me there is no greater feeling than giving a loved one a thoughtful gift, meant only for them + watching as the surprise is unveiled for the very first time.

Hi!  My name is Jenn Thompson.

making, gifting + celebrating.

You know, the good things in life.

 

 

 

 

 M.Y. story: 

I’ve been creating since I was a child. As a descendent of generations of crafters you could say it is truly in my blood. I have the loveliest memories of handknit dinosaur sweater vests, handsewn doll clothes + needlework adoring our living room from my Mom. My Oma (Grandmother) is a strict knitter + crochet master; she learned the craft as a child + has since made countless blankets, hats + wearable items. I’ve always been in awe of her natural craftsmanship + my most cherished memories are of the days when we worked on latch-hooked rugs, plush dolls + animals, finishing the day with silly bedtime stories told by my plush friends. To top it off I really took to creating personalized gifts from poems to handmade cards + decorations as a child. 

So began my lifetime love for crafts, gifting + my eternal adoration for plush.

As an adult I rediscovered my true love for crafting handmade gifts. The culmination of my efforts produced the Mini Car Plush for my first Christmas with my boyfriend, Alex. I wanted to make something incredibly special + unique to show my love for him so I modeled the car after his beloved 1971 Mini Cooper. For the guy who has everything (just like my brother + most men I know) the personalized Mini Car was the perfect answer.  I realized that the best gifts of all where always those that really reflect the person receiving.

To me there is no greater feeling than giving a loved one a thoughtful gift, meant only for them + watching as the surprise is unveiled for the very first time.
