I'm Jen, born and raised in the heartland with big city dreams. A lover of all things lovely, I'm a designer by trade and crafter by nature. Bleu Collar Paperie is an homage to my father, a self-taught computer programmer by day and factory worker by night, who showed me how to work tirelessly for all that I love.

Thanks for your super sweet note, Jen! I've been out of town, and just now had a chance to get caught up on emails and messages. I think you are pretty awesome, too! :)
Thanks so much for your super nice comments, Jen! I really appreciate it. I was pretty shocked! I LOVE your Sweet Treat Trade Off, too - I hope you can sell it sucessfully elsewhere this season. I predict your Ombre en Moderne to be a big winner - it's stunning! Thanks, again! :)
Thanks for the wonderful comment on my "Blessed Union" design Jen! It really means a lot. And I'm totally pulling for your Vintage Playbill invite... so cool! Take care! :)
Hi Jen, Thanks for the sweet note (back in July!...I've been out of the "Minted loop" this summer). It truly made me smile :) You are an inspiration!
Hi Jen, Thank you for the very nice note. I really admire your work!
Thanks so much Jen for the nice comment! It is nice to know that one's work is appreciated. By the way, I love your "A Flurry of Greetings" holiday card. Best of luck to you :D
you did all the hard work ;) - I hope it makes you lots of money! I really love that one.
Thanks so much, Jen!!! Congrats to you, as well - I love "Get Prettified!" Can't believe "Iconic Love" didn't get a pick - it looks so great and had a fab name! ;) But, seriously, I love that one and wish it had gotten picked!
Jen, your about jenincmyk is so great. Are you sure you're not a copywriter too!!!!
Jen, thanks soo much for the kind note on my wall! : )
thanks for your suggestions on my 'baby type' :) I bumped up the pt size on the details so its much more legible :) took me forever to figure out the safely pin for the 'A'. it was like a 'Eureka' moment. :)
hi jen! i tweaked my 'milk and tea' design some more if you're interested in checking it out. thanks for your suggestions!
thanks so much, jen! i'm totally in love with your dreamy cloud illustration- fabulous!
Thanks for your congrats, Jen. You do awesome work too by the way, I love it!
Sure, Jen! I was bummed about "losing" last night, too...but, I'm consoling myself with the theory that maybe they are selecting fewer designs lately to save some good ones for our storefronts later this year! I only hope that I qualify to get one - can't wait to hear what Minted's plan for that will be...
Nostalgic Knot is so great...maybe you could do an illustration of how to tie a shoe for a nursery print...we could sure use that in our house! :)
Your work is fabulous, Jen! I'm sure you'll come up with an idea at the last minute that'll knock everyone's socks off!!!
Congrats on your special award, Jen! :)

Hi Jen, thanks for the kind words. I felt so rushed with my designs. I wished I could've worked out a few kinks in a couple of them. With the holiday crunch, I am seeing most of these designs for the first time. Sorry I didn't get to yours sooner, but you do nice work, and have strong contenders. Good luck in the challenge!
