Hi!  Welcome to Jen’s a Little Loopy!  I’m Jennifer, your hostess with the mostest.  It’s so kind of you to stop by my little corner of the interwebs.

I write about playing with yarn, crafting, and cooking retro recipes in order to:

  • help you channel your inner crafty goddess
  • encourage you to fearlessly embark on crafty misadventures


  • maybe even impart some inspiration and wisdom  😉

Sparks of joy and inspiration lurk in the most unexpected places — rough days, castaway objects that can be upcycled, recipes in dusty old cookbooks, crafty somethings or others that can be used in a new and unexpected way…maybe even hiding in that bin of craft supplies shoved in the back of your closet.

Here you’ll find patterns, recipes, little life lessons I learn as I move through my creative space, and yes, even failures! Especially failures.  Awesome things are built on making lots and lots of mistakes and it is totally ok to have a laugh at my expense!  If I can’t serve as a good example, I’ll at least be a horrible warning.

Without further ado, let’s get CRAftY!

Looking for patterns?  They’re right here!

Want to talk retro recipes?  Of course you do!

Stuck in a crafty rut?  This post might help.
