About Bleu Collar Paperie

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 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!

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! :)

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!
