Jen Lemen always has the right words

Jen---Your words could be my words…ones I haven’t written yet, because I have been busy falling apart, being lost, crying, unraveling, being lonely, hoping, scrambling, being disappointed….I know the place that those words came from. My heart is in the same place and I can see you there. Thank you.

Love Will Find You Out

Finding my Tail....

The new year has forced changes in my life that I have no map to navigate, so I have been a ghost of myself. I have been trying to figure out how to "be".... It has been especially hard to find my Pink Moments. More days than not, I have been Eeyore. My tail has fallen off and there is a cloud that seems to be only for me.

I realize that the Winnie-the-Poohs in my life: my children, my sisters, my family, my dear old friends Sue and Allyson, and my new friends at Bambi's and Kathie are all there putting me back together. Helping me do what I love, even helping me manage the things I don't love, so I can get my feet under me.

Bambi and her beautiful vision of a store full of wonderful art has handed me a gift. An enormous gift...a glowing Pink Moment...where I can feel joy. I am excited by the possibilities.

There are new things to come:

  • Tiny charms to make 
  • Preemie sweaters
  • A crinkly baby newspaper toy
  • My own buttons to create
  • Jewelry for teens
  • Books of self-esteem
  • A lovely pink baby sweater adorned with knit roses
  • white chocolate popcorn
  • dipped pretzels
  • Baby items like burp cloths and toys
  • Vintage baby quilts
  • Tiny crochet animal sculptures 
  • Tiny books about the Beach
